Some Calaveras County Schools need to Close????

   In an area with lower numbers of school age children,  it is difficult to keep a school open.

    For example, if there are only 45 children in an entire school, it would be fiscally irresponsible for a Board of Trustees to keep it open as if it were a private school.

  If you combine three schools into one, and give the children a bus to ride to the most central school, it makes sense.

  Otherwise, it's the taxpayers in the larger areas that are supporting the tiny schools, and that is simply not fair to them.

   Everyone understands that all parents want their children to have a tiny class or school so that their child gets more attention.

    If that is the case, then they need to pony up the money and pay more to keep it open, and it's unlikely that they would be able to afford to do that.
