FILLMORE : School Board to Cut Number of Meetings

The Fillmore school board decided Tuesday to cut one of its two monthly business meetings.

At the suggestion of new Supt. David Haney, the board will hold one regular session on the first Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m.

Haney said his former district, Hesperia Unified, was able to conduct its business in a single monthly session, although Hesperia is four times larger than the 3,500-student Fillmore Unified School District.

Many board meetings held in Fillmore last less than an hour, Haney said.

Special study sessions will be held on the third Tuesday of the month as necessary, Haney said. On the third Tuesday in February, trustees will meet with the Fillmore City Council to discuss renovation of the district's aging facilities, the need to build more classrooms and ways to acquire land for new schools as the community grows.
