The Chino Valley Unified School District is considering a reorganization of three of its campuses as a way to tackle the nearly $600,000 budget deficit the district will face for the 2013-14 school year.

The Budget Reduction Action Plan, presented by CVUSD Superintendent Duane Howard at the Feb. 11 school board meeting, suggests that the board combine students and staff from Territorial Elementary School with Del Rio School, and use a portion of TES as a kindergarten only campus. To ease the load on DRS, Heritage Middle School would add fifth grade to its existing sixth through eighth-grade program.

The District board will conduct a public meeting to discuss the reorganization in detail and receive public comment at 6 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 28, at Territorial Elementary School, 1088 E. Mahan Lane in Chino Valley.

It would also be good to see this school district follow the example of other school districts throughout the country.
This is the only school district that i know of that has kids waiting at the bus stop while it is still dark outside because they are afraid to put all the students on the same bus. In the school district that i had my kids at this past year they had the middle school and the elementary schoolers including the kindergarteners ride the same bus. This gave some relief for parents in a way that CVUSD has not ever offered, in that the parents did not have to be at the bus stop to pick up even their kindergarteners as long as there was an older sibling to walk them home. I have complained about the early hours for our elementary school kids for years now i sure hope they can figure something better out than what they have. They are on the right track by combining the two elementary schools now all they have to do is cut down how many times they send the buses to the same area in one day. When i was living in Paulden i saw four buses come out our way every morning and most of them went back to chino with only a few students on the bus now as far as i am concerned that is extremely wasteful on the school districts part.
