Amador County Public Schools Board of Trustees
OUR UNITY OF PURPOSE: We work as a cohesive Governance Team through discussions, actions and decisions that are thoughtful, respectful, and sensitive. We support one another in and away from the Board Room through active listening, vulnerability and honesty. We make policy decisions that ensure equitable support to increase student achievement and foster social, emotional, and physical well-being for all students.
A Message from the Board of Trustees
As we move through the COVID-19 outbreak and an unknown period of school closures, the Board of Trustees assures you that the health and well-being of our students, employees and their families is our primary concern. The Board is following the directives of Governor Newsom, the State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and our local Amador County Public Health Officer Dr. Rita Kerr.
Our Amador County Public Schools leadership and teaching staff have our full support and confidence to plan and organize distance learning and other alternative learning opportunities for all of our students.
The Amador County community is remarkable and unique in pulling together and uniting, without hesitation, when extreme situations affect us. Now is such a time. We are grateful for your resilience and support in this challenging time.
