ACUSD Faces A Shortage Of Textbooks

It was a busy night for the Amador School Board as it faced a shortage of textbooks. A generally routine resolution that the board passes each year certifying that students have sufficient textbooks, instead acknowledged that the district has shortages in textbooks. Books are in short supply in different subjects at four elementary schools, and for Jackson Junior High math and Argonaut High School chemistry. The school district blames an unexpected fluctuation in enrollment at some school sites and delays in shipping textbooks from the east-coast publishers due to hurricanes in Texas and Florida. District officials assured the board that all textbooks would be delivered by October 9th. The board heard reports on construction projects in the district. The new solar panel/overhead cover structures in both high school parking lots are nearing completion and students will soon have full use of their parking lots, but the new Argonaut High track project has run into further delays, but is still expected to be completed before track season starts in February. The board also passed a resolution declaring October to be national bullying prevention month and discussed various anti-bullying efforts at district school sites, as well as passing a resolution marking the week of the school administrator.
