School Attendance and School Funding Made Simple

Black Oak Mine U.S.D. will be losing approximately $90,000.00 in funding next year from the state due to a rise in school truancy and illness. In short, when students are not at school the state removes funding for those students on a daily basis. Sick or truant makes no difference the state keeps the funds. 


Illness: When our children are ill they need to stay home. Fevers and communicable diseases are a good reason to miss school. You cannot learn when you are unwell.  

Truancy (Playing Hooky) A large percentage of absenteeism is truancy,  even at Northside. Truancy is making the choice not to get an education. The following were reasons listed by parents for keeping students out of school: trips to Disneyland, parent's anniversary's, extended vacations, birthdays and more. 


How does this translate to your school? It means less money for books, technology, school assemblies and supplies. It's not fair, but it is a consequence of students not being in school plain and simple. Please consider investing in your student's future send them to school when they are well!

Black Oak Mine Unified School District

Black Oak Mine Unified School District


April 15, 2016


At the regular April 14 meeting of the Black Oak Mine Unified School District, the Board of Trustees voted unanimously to approve a new administrative model.  Scenario #5, as it is called, reduces administration to four full-time administrators from the current five and two-thirds full time positions.  The reduction will save the district approximately $196,000.  The new administrative model is displayed in the following:


Scenario #5        Principal-Northside

                              Principal-Golden Sierra Junior Senior High School

                              Asst. Principal/Coordinator-Golden Sierra Junior Senior High School

                              Superintendent/Principal-Georgetown School


The Board conducted a thorough review of eight scenarios. A ninth was proposed during the discussion. A packed board room composed of district staff and community members shared concerns and support for various scenarios with the Board.   Fiscal responsibility played a prominent role in the final decision.

Questions regarding the new model can be directed to the Office of the Superintendent: 333-8300 ext 7.
