  • During the public comment section of the Board Meeting held on August 22, 2019, members of the Del Norte County Unified School District staff and the community spoke to the Board on a variety of topics.  Many of the comments specifically addressed raises, COLA, class size and District reserves, and the meeting comments were further reported in the Del Norte Triplicate on August 24, 2019. Assistant Superintendent Jeff Napier noted the questions and comments raised during the meeting and prepared a special presentation for the Board to provide the Board of Trustees with additional information on these issues.  As elected representatives of Del Norte County, the Board members are committed to full transparency and, in keeping with their values, are sharing the presentation made by Mr. Napier during the Board meeting held on Thursday, September 12, 2019.

    If you have any additional questions regarding the content of the presentation, please feel free to contact Mr. Napier at, and thank you for supporting our students with all that you do.
