DELTA SIERRA SECTION PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
It certainly has been a difficult start to the school year. Our rural communities have experienced power outages, evacuations, wildfires, and air quality issues in the midst of COVID and political upheaval. Students, families, and educators are doing the very best that they can. Supporting one another is so very critical right now.
As always, CASCWA provides assistance and networking opportunities to those in roles with varying responsibilities, who are often spread thin and doing everything within their ability to aid those in need. Delta-Sierra aims to adapt and best support its membership as well as districts and schools across Northern California. We welcome input from those within our region regarding training and technical assistance needs so that Delta Sierra may provide support. Please connect with us!
Thankful for all of the hard work that you do.

Melissa Parrett is the Student Services Program Coordinator for the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools Office. Prior to entering the field of education she spent 10 years working for the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges in close partnership with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. In this role, she traveled the nation extensively conducting a variety of research and program evaluation projects related to child abuse and neglect, foster care, adoption and court procedure. These projects touched a broad range of areas including social psychology/sociology, child development and family dynamics, organizational behavior, and systems change. Roughly 14 years ago, Melissa joined the staff at the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools Office. Overtime, she has acquired many “hats” as is typical in smaller rural county offices. She is President of the California Association of Supervisors of Child Welfare and Attendance, Delta-Sierra Section. Melissa and her husband have been married for fifteen years and have two school aged children and a newborn at home.
