slide23.pngThe Amador County Unified School District, or ACUSD, also approved the California Valued Trust Participation Agreement at their meeting Wednesday evening. This agreement is between ACUSD and the non-bargaining ACUSD Administrative unit to provide health and welfare benefits. Board member Terry Porray stated that she is not “opposed to the benefits which the staff obviously deserve, however, the contract is sloppy work on the company’s part, not the staffs.” The final vote was 5-1-1 with Board members Terry Porray dissenting and Chuck Anderson absent.

There was also a brief report from Superintendent Mike Carey regarding the student drug testing policy, specifically speaking to the information requested from the board at the last meeting. He spoke to both the probation department and Bret Harte regarding the accuracy of the tests and found that there have been “very few challenges on drug testing results” He also spoke to the testing company out of Santa, which stand by its products accuracy. The company recommend swab testing as the testing window for most substances be expanded to 48 hours, with the exception of THC, which holds a 12-hour window. Drug testing will be discussed further at the May 12th meeting.  Rosa
