First Amendment rights, accusations of activism, and how to deal with controversial books dominate Delano School Board meeting

It was the longest and most well-attended Delano School Board meeting in recent memory, as nearly 100 students, parents, and community members packed into Delano City Hall Monday night to voice their opinions on whether or not certain books should be allowed in the Delano High School Media Center.

The reading material within the Delano High School Media Center has become a hot-button issue in recent weeks. Members of a parent group, Concerned Community 879 (CC879), raised alarms via social media earlier this month regarding books they found in the high school media center that they deemed sexually explicit and pornographic.

Schlepers named 2023 Citizens of the Year

Since moving to Delano 32 years ago, Joe and Cheryl Schleper have been pillars of the community. Their contributions and dedication as teachers, coaches, and volunteers have impacted the community that Delano is today.

Earlier this year, the dynamic duo was recognized for their contributions to the community, as they were named the 2023 Citizens of the Year by the General Federated Women’s Club of  Delano (GFWC) and will be formally recognized during the GFWC’s Citizen of the Year banquet Sunday, May 7.
