Dear Amador County Unified School District Families,
As you know, we recently asked for support for a bond measure to repair, renovate, and enhance learning environments at all of our schools for our students and employees. While I am personally disappointed that it didn’t pass because of the wonderful things it would have done for our students, I want to reach out to all of you and let you know that I am grateful.
Our community has been so generous in so many ways. Individual community members and organizations have stepped up and provided amazing opportunities for our students and our school district is lucky to have the community support we enjoy. That support is not just monetary; it is also the love and time that is devoted to our classrooms, programs, and our athletic teams.
As the school district’s leader, I understand that the buck stops with me. I did not successfully lead a bond measure effort that effectively communicated our significant facility needs and how voter approved resources would have been applied. I’m committed to understanding where we fell short and doing whatever we need to do to increase your trust and engagement with Amador County Unified School District.
I am starting that effort today. Please consider participating in our post-bond survey at this LINK or scan the QR code below. We want to learn more about your opinion and your ideas about how we can grow from this experience. Just as we tell our students each day, failure is an opportunity to learn. Risk, approximations, and failure followed by reflection and problem solving with perseverance is what will make the difference in every case. Let’s do this!
We have amazing staff, teachers, leaders, students, and families. Our district is as strong as it is today because of you and we look forward to continuing our great community relationships in the years to come.
Dr. Amy Slavensky, Superintendent
