Pursuant to provisions of the California Elections Code, the undersigned, registered qualified voters of the Pleasant Valley School District, in the County of Ventura, State of California, hereby give notice that we are the proponents of a recall petition and that we intend to seek your recall and removal from the office of Pleasant Valley School District School Board in the Pleasant Valley School Board in the Pleasant Valley School District, County of Ventura, State of California, and to demand and election of a successor for that office.
The grounds for the proposed recall are as follows:
We are requesting the recall of these board members based on their fiscal irresponsibility, poor management of the school administration and total disregard for the needs of PVSD community. These board members have placed the 100 year old institution of PVSD behind their personal agendas. They have closed schools without regard to the fiscal and educational impact on the district. They showed little regard for the 400+ families by refusing to charter CAPE, and forced them to seek charter from OUHSD. Poor fiscal responsibility has been displayed by the school boards strenuous pursuit of AB780, taking more money from students and educational programs. These board members lack employer competence as evidenced by their hiring and firing of the past two school Superintendent. Parent, student and community input has been discounted and ignored when placing, removing or re-assigning teachers and site administrators. These board members consistently refuse to respond to parent and teacher inquiries via e-mail, letters and phone calls. Subsequently they routinely make decisions without public input or with complete disregard to the needs of the school district and our educational system. In many instances they have violated the Brown Act governing open meetings and the right to transparent administration.
