Monte Rio School
Surrounded by nature, on the edge of a forest, with real grass in it's field, Monte Rio Union School is a beautiful gem in the west county. We are an inclusive K-8 school, for anyone in the Guerneville - Monte Rio - Cazedero area! Monte Rio School is small, providing lots of time for one on one time for students with their teachers. We have a brilliant garden, providing delicious and nutritious food for all grades. And lastly, we are very community involved, with fundraisers, shows, and occasional plays.
Dear Monte Rio parents and guardians,
I hope the New Year is treating you well. As you probably know, November 6th's election saw Measure J, Monte Rio Union School District's 3.3 million dollar Bond, pass with flying colors. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. This money will help upgrade our school facilities and help provide our students with the learning environment they deserve.
We are currently accepting applications for citizens to be part of the 7 member Citizens Oversight Committee. The committee will be responsible for meeting at least one time per year, hearing a report from District staff on bond fund projects and spending, and making an annual report to the Board of Trustees and the community about bond expenditures. The Committee will exist until bond funds are fully spent. If you are interested, please review the following documents and submit your application to the school office prior to February 8th at 5:00 pm.
In addition to two members of the community at large, there must be at least one member from each of the following groups:
• One member who is active in a business organization representing the business community located within the school district.
• One member who is active in a senior citizen's organization.
• One member who is the parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the school district.
• One member who is the parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the school district and is active in a parent-teacher organization.
• One member who is active in a bona-fide taxpayer's organization.
The Bond Oversight Committee may not include any employee or official of the school district or any vendor, contractor, or consultant of the school district. Members must be at least 18 years old, and preference will be given to members who live within the geographic boundary of the District.
