SLV School District Perspectives
School Board Meeting Synopsis
September 22, 2004
Link To SLVUSD Web site Agendas and Minutes Page (Note: These are PDF files - read this if you have trouble opening them). Minutes are posted after they are approved, usually at the next regular meeting.
Note from Laura About These Synopses (Basically, I report on what I think will be most interesting to community residents. Consult the minutes for a more complete listing of what happened in the meeting.)
The board had no report out of closed session, which was listed on the agenda as follows:
Superintendent Performance Evaluation (Government Code 54957)
There was input congratulating the District for successfully defending itself against the SLV CARE lawsuit and hoping that expenses can be recovered.
- The District prevailed
in the lawsuit on all five Causes of Action.
- The fourth graders
at SLE met with some people from the Giants team about healthy eating
BCE Drop-Off Plans
Mike Johnson, a BCE parent (I think?), has been working hard on possibilities for improved pick-up and drop-off at BCE. The concern is that at this point, children are walking in the street too much. He has been working with the staff and parents at BCE with this plan, and has enlisted many community organizations and businesses, including getting donations (Jeff Hill was mentioned) and a grant. The first goal would be to create an additional dropoff point by the cemetery at the south end of the school property. The ultimate goal is for students to be dropped off directly onto the campus with no sharing of the roadway. The Board directed the Superintendent to support Mr. Johnson's efforts.
Child Nutrition Services
Have reorganized staff, and several changes have been instituted to reduce the CNS encroachment by $100,000.
Approve the Bid for Junior High Construction
Bogard Construction was awarded the bid. We hope they will make good progress before the rain starts.
The meeting was adjourned at 7:45.
