The Clark County School District has allowed our school to remain open and has added six students from Primm. We are safe until 2012.
The Clark County School District would like to close the Goodsprings School, which is imminent. The District received correspondence from many of you who responded to our SOS and the public meeting, held on January 22nd, was addressed by Steve Fleming, Julie Newberry, Ruth Rawlinson and Liz Warren as speakers for our school. An mp3 recording of the event can be heard at CCSD Board Docs then select 01-22-09 meeting and open section 7 for 01-22-09 Ref. 7.03, 7.04.mp3. The file is also available here 01-22-09 Ref. 7.03, 7.04.mp3 with vocal results. We thank the many alumni who supported Goodsprings at the meeting and in letters.
The school will be allowed to operate one more year while attempting to cut down expenses and solve the budget problems. Carolyn Edwards, our representative on the School Board, is assembling a list of people interested in helping to resolve the Goodsprings School closure that still looms over our town. She would like to have people who want to be kept in the loop, and who will attend meetings from time to time, perhaps even research answers to some of the issues. She is compiling names and e-addresses of all who are willing to share them with her. She will send out bulletins, set meetings, bring School District staff to discuss finances, etc.
This will be a yearlong project and YOU CAN HELP. However, you must act now. Please contact Carolyn Edwards directly at:

We've passed the first milestone in our proposed Rails to Trails project for the Yellow Pine Railroad - our preliminary proposal was given the green light by the regional National Park Service office in California. The GHS Board of Trustees met on November 12, 2005 with Liz Smith-Incer, local representative of the program, to learn about what the next step will be and what our commitment involves. Some photos of that project group are posted here.
In absence of a local agent, Barbara Rice, Program Leader NPS from Oakland, CA, became our project leader in January 2007. Her commitment and frequent trips from Oakland are appreciated .
The Feasibilty planning has been completed by Shapins Belt Collins with results placed on Clark County website Goodsprings Trails Study.
The project is in line to be considered by the BLM's Resource Advisory Council for the next round of SNPLMA grants. That should happen this fall. It will compete with other projects, but the fact that we have a completed feasibility study should help.
