Citizen's Bond Oversight Committee for BOND PROJECTS

posted May 8, 2019, 3:10 PM by Catherine Stone

Hello!  The District is getting ready to begin the bond projects using the funds from Measure H (thank you voters!), and we want your help! 

Under the provisions of Prop. 39, State law requires the District to establish a Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee appointed by the District's Board of Trustees. The Committee's purposes are focused on monitoring the expenditures - making sure that we are spending bond money on Bond projects. 

Duties of the committee will include:
Ensure Bond funds are spent only on projects listed in the Bond Project List and no funds are used for salaries or general operating expenses.
Monitor progress of Bond projects.
Receive and review copies of the annual performance and financial audits of Bond projects as required by California State law (Proposition 39).
Provide information to the public on the progress of Bond projects and expenditures of Bond funds. 

The Membership of the committee is defined by law and consists of 7 members:
1 member must be an active member of the business community
1 member must be active in a senior citizens' organization
1 member shall be active in a bona fide taxpayers' organization (proof required)
1 member shall be the parent or guardian of a student enrolled in the District's schools
1 member shall be the parent or guardian of a student enrolled in the District's schools and active in a parent-teacher organization

No employee or officer of the District may serve on the Committee, nor may any vendor, contractor or consultant of the District serve on the Committee. (Education Code Section 15282)

Meetings will occur quarterly once bond fund expenditures begin to be made.

Interested community members living within the Middletown Unified School District boundaries are encouraged to apply!  
For more information and an application, please see the attached documents or come by the District Office.  Applications are due in the District Office on May 31st by 4pm.

INTERDISTRICT TRANSFER?

posted Mar 25, 2019, 3:55 PM by Catherine Stone   [ updated Apr 2, 2019, 8:45 AM ]

Are you interested in sending your student to Middletown schools next year?  If so, please download the Interdistrict Transfer Application packet (below) for all the information and forms you need.

Do note that our Interdistrict Transfer window is only open between April 1st and May 15th, so you'll want to start working on this right away.  Here are a few guidelines:

1. All applications for interdistrict attendance permits must be approved by the student's district of residence prior to submission to the district.  Once approved, you will need to add the additional items listed below. If you are applying for an employment-related transfer, please contact Sonja at the District Office (707-987-4100).  The timelines and rules are the same, but the forms are slightly different.

 

2. Parents/Guardians should submit completed applications for interdistrict attendance permits to the District Office between April 1 and May 15 of the school year preceding the requested year of enrollment. Applications submitted after May 15 and before October 31 will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Applications submitted outside of these times will not be considered and returned to the applicant. Applications should include a "School Districts of Lake County Request for Interdistrict Attendance Permit" application approved by your District of Residence, a copy of the student's current transcript, a copy of student's attendance report for the prior twelve (12) months, a discipline summary, and a copy of the student's Section 504 Plan or Individualized Education Program (IEP), if applicable. All of these last 5 items are available from your student’s current school.

 

3. Applications will be considered in two waves: The first wave will include all applications submitted in the first three weeks of the interdistrict attendance enrollment period (April 1 – 21), and the second wave will include all applications submitted in the second three weeks of the interdistrict attendance enrollment period (April 22 – May 15). After the enrollment priorities have been applied in accordance with this Regulation, if there are more requests for a particular school or program than there are spaces available, a random drawing shall be held from the applicant pool ("lottery") for each wave. A waiting list shall be established to indicate the order in which applicants may be accepted if openings occur during the year. The district will hold lotteries for each wave of applications as necessary.

 

4. No later than thirty (30) calendar days after receipt of a completed application for interdistrict attendance permit, the Superintendent or designee shall provide written notification by mail to applicants as to whether their applications have been approved, denied, or placed on a waiting list. If the application is denied, the reasons for denial shall be stated. The Superintendent or designee also shall notify schools of the students assigned or waitlisted at each school via the interdistrict application process.

 

5. Approved applicants must confirm their enrollment within 10 school days of receipt of the notification letter by bringing the notification letter to the school at which the student will be transferring and completing the registration process. Failure to complete the registration process at the school at which the student will be transferring by end of the regular school year will cause the student's space to be relinquished.

 

6. Once enrolled in a school through an interdistrict attendance permit, a student shall not be required to reapply for readmission on a yearly basis. Parents/guardians shall be required to apply for a new interdistrict attendance permit if the parents/guardians wish to enroll the student at a school in the district other than that school in which he/she is enrolled. Parents/guardians wishing to enroll a student in a different district school must follow the same procedures and timelines outlined above for new requests. Prior approval of an application does not guarantee approval of any subsequent request.

 

7. The District reserves the right to change the school of enrollment of a child enrolled through an interdistrict attendance permit between school years in order to make space in a school or program for a student who is a residence of the district.

Good morning Middletown Unified Families, the storm slowed down, and it isn't snowing on Cobb.  We are opening Cobb school today after all, with a late start at 9:45 a.m.
We are so sorry for the confusion this causes, and wish we had a crystal ball for the weather!
In the meantime, buses will be running an hour later for all students that live on Cobb.  Thank you for your understanding.
