Several of the teachers are graduates of the Fall River Unified School District. About one third of the current teachers in the District are graduates of Burney or Fall River High School who have returned to serve the community they grew up in.

After two years of increased enrollment the number of students declined this year by 29 students. Enrollment for 2016-2017 was 1226 students. Enrollment this year is 1197.

This was the first School Board meeting of the year. This is goal-setting time. After introducing the teachers and conducting the Regular Meeting, the Board adjourns and holds a workshop to set goals for the year. Employees throughout the district also set goals.

The process continues for several weeks. Then the board reviews all of the goals and boils it down.

Teri Vigil, President of the Board of Trustees said, “We like to focus on four or five major goals so that we have successful year for our students.”
