Current principal, Meg Enns, has accepted a position as the Superintendent/Principal of the Gold Oak Union School District, effective July 1st, 2016. As a result of her departure, the Buckeye Union School District has completed a comprehensive search process and interviews of principal candidates.
On June 8th, at the regularly scheduled meeting of the Buckeye Union School District's Board of Trustees, Doug Shupe will be recommended as the next Principal of Camerado Springs Middle School. Doug comes to the Buckeye Union School District with a wealth of experience as a classroom teacher, assistant principal, and principal. Currently Mr. Shupe serves as the principal of Herbert C. Green Middle School in the Mother Lode Union School District in Placerville. Prior to that, Doug served as the assistant principal at Camerado Springs Middle School, Silva Valley Elementary, and Blue Oak Elementary/Charter Montessori over a five year period. Mr. Shupe began his career teaching Math and Science in the Loomis Union School District before entering administration.
We look forward to welcoming Mr. Shupe in the coming year.

Every Day Counts
Every Day Counts in a child’s education. Every day a student misses school, he or she gets more than two days behind his peers, because he or she must make up missed lessons and catch up with new lessons at the same time. Regular and punctual attendance will help increase student academic growth. California Education Code Section 46010 states that the only valid reasons for absences from school are:
School districts NO longer receive funding from the State of California for students who are absent from school. This includes ALL absences, even those related to illness, medical/dental appointments. In other words, schools will receive state funding only for students who are in their seats for that day. Please be sure to assist your child in maintaining exemplary attendance to insure the best possible education for him/her, as well as maximum state funding for student attendance. Even if a student attended school part of the day we could still receive income for that student ($35-$40 a day per child). We kindly ask you to be sure your child only stays home when it’s absolutely necessary.
We know you want the very best education for your child, and we do too. Thank you for understanding that Every Day Counts, together we can give your child the very best education.
