“I saw flames and went and saw the laundry room was on fire,” Hayden, 10, said Tuesday.
He ran and woke his grandfather, who was asleep in another room, who called 9-1-1 as they both got out of the house without injury.
“It was really scary,” Hayden said. “Worst night ever.”

Local Control Accountability Plan
Last week the State Board of Education adopted the regulations for the LCAP and districts across California are now working to develop an understanding of the new funding formula requirements in order to make informed programmatic decisions about how they will provide increased and/or improved services to the targeted student groups which include low income students, English learners and foster youth.
The development of the LCAP requires transparency and stakeholder engagement. In order for district staff to develop such a plan, consultation with school employees, parents, students and community members is necessary. During the month of February more than 20 different Central School District stakeholder focus groups will meet with district staff to provide input as we develop our district LCAP.
The final district budget and LCAP will be presented to the Board of Trustees for a first reading in May and approval at its June 12, 2014 meeting.

Safe Drinking Water
One of Central School District’s Guiding Principles states that we take pride in our well-maintained facilities and know that it is our responsibility to provide, clean, safe and secure sites for the well being of our students and staff. One way we accomplish this is by conducting routine preventative lead testing of the water at each of our schools. This practice was implemented by the district in the late 1990’s as a result of the amendments made to the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).
