Superintendent's Message

26 days ago

Today the Live Oak School Community lost our beloved Bytheal Ratliff. Bytheal wore many hats in our District. He was the campus supervisor, the athletic director and a coach for the after school sports program at Shoreline Middle School. He took a personal interest in students and his mentoring made a huge difference in their lives.  

In his role as District Security Manager, Bytheal established close working relationships with our principals and with law enforcement. His collaborative spirit forged a highly connected approach to school safety. He had an intuitive ability to sense potential problems and he used this ability to proactively prevent issues from escalating.

Words cannot adequately express our sorrow, nor do they adequately express our gratitude for having had the privilege of working alongside this extraordinary man.

In 2012, the Santa Cruz Sentinel ran the story below about Bytheal and all his contributions to his community. We all felt immense pride when this article appeared. He was simply the best.

A candlelight vigil will be held at the Shoreline amphitheater on Friday, June 2, at 8:00 PM. If you would like to help, a donation account has been set up to support his family:    https://www.gofundme.com/in-memory-of-bytheal-ratliff

SchoolBlocks offers a unique and powerful personalized search system. A member of the public, searching for "homework" might see an announcement from the school as the first result. However, if the user is logged in, they would see their teacher’s latest homework assignment as the top result.
