Some dozen Browns Valley Elementary parents Thursday let Vacaville Unified leaders know they are adamantly opposed to Principal Jennifer Austin’s plan for year-round classes next year and several said the solution to the Wrentham Drive campus’ overcrowding was simple: Build a new school.
As the public comment segment of the district trustees meeting got underway, President Michael Kitzes told parents the issue had not been aired among governing board members.
“Nothing’s really been talked about up here,” he said from the dais. “Nothing’s been decided.”
Superintendent Jane Shamieh said Austin’s 14-page proposal — with sections devoted to the “problem,” the “solution,” “potential obstacles,” and a proposal process timeline that stretches to March — was exactly that, a proposal, nothing more.
