Bieber High School in 1949 from the Eastman Collection at UC Davis

School Problem is Considered
January 17, 1941

J. P. Parker, principal of the Bieber branch of Lassen Union High School of Susanville, presented yesterday the predicament of Adin high school district to the board of trustees of the local school in the hope that the Bieber and Adin high schools might be combined to the benefit of both.

Adin’s schoolhouse has been condemned as unsafe and a $45,000 bond election is proposed in February.

Parker points out that Bieber high has 42 students and four instructors. Adin has 45 enrolled students and as many on its faculty. Combining the two schools at Bieber would result in doubling the attendance, and pave the way for adding two more to the faculty, thus increasing educational facilities and the material enlargement of the school program, he said.

Lassen high’s board of trustees declare that they cannot act unless proper application is made. It’s stated that Lassen will be invited to act and pave the way for another strong high school in Northern California.
