DECEMBER 10 SUPERINTENDENT UPDATE

Dear MPCSD Community,

 

To ensure our students and staff are safe through the upcoming storm, our maintenance crew has been preparing our schools and facilities. We have checked our communication systems and reviewed emergency protocol with staff. Please allow for extra driving time when dropping off and picking up your children. Please be safe and patient on the road. We understand if our students or you are late due to weather and traffic conditions.

 

In case of power and communication loss, the District will use our usual communication methods (email and websites) in addition to using the following radio stations to communicate emergency bulletins: KCBS (740 AM) and KZSU (90.1 FM).

 

Appeal of Menlo Mandarin Immersion Charter Petition

On December 5, MMICS submitted an appeal to the San Mateo County Office of Education.  (As I previously reported, on November 12th, the MPCSD School Board unanimously denied the charter petition based on the criteria outlined in the law.) The County Board will be holding a Public Hearing on January 7 at 7:00 p.m. at the San Mateo County Office Of Education (SMCOE), 101 Twin Dolphin Dr, Redwood City, CA 94065. The Public Hearing is the community’s opportunity to provide input to the County Board, and our District will be presenting information on our denial of MMICS’s petition for the County Board to consider. The County Board plans to take action and make a decision on February 4 at 7:00 p.m. also at SMCOE.

 

The District also received the Petitioners’ request for District facilities under Proposition 39 on October 31. On December 1, the District denied the petitioners’ request for District facilities under Proposition 39.

 

You can find all Board meeting presentations, reports, and additional information related to the Charter Petition on the District's website (below).

 

Sincerely,

Maurice Ghysels

Superintendent
