WCCUSD Board Meeting 5/​20/​2009 Preview

Hopefully my new net­book will help me keep up on my blog­ging more. One thing I plan on us­ing it more for is cov­er­ing WCCUSD board meet­ings in a more up-to-date fash­ion. I have a sum­mary of the meet­ing items at the end of this. This is the full agenda.

I’ll be fol­low­ing these items in par­tic­u­lar:

*CI C.12 Resolution 90 – 0809, Governing Board of the WCCUSD to Become
Subject to Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting Act (UPCCAA or
the “Act”)

What is it?

* D.1 Ivy League Summer Programs: Students from El Cerrito High School,
Pinole Valley High School, Hercules High School, and Richmond High
School will par­tic­i­pate in col­lege readi­ness pro­grams of­fered at
re­spec­tive Ivy League Colleges and Universities

Charles Ramsey’s pet pro­gram (more about this in an­other post.) How long will this item be dragged out? In the past, things ILC have gone on for much longer than other sim­i­lar items.

* D.2 Budget Report Updates

The elec­tion yes­ter­day. Enough said.

* F.1 Approval of Resolution No. 91 – 0809 Response to the Grand Jury
Report No. 0907

This is the of­fi­cial re­sponse to the Grand Jury re­port warn­ing about post-em­ploy­ment ben­e­fits.

* F.2 Mentoring Program Support

Sounds in­ter­est­ing, but I’m al­ways leery of our District’s part­ner­ing grow­ing into some­thing more than was in­tended.

* G.1 Possible Parcel Tax

The par­cel tax dis­cus­sion will prob­a­bly be based to some de­gree on the fail­ure of the Mt. Diablo par­cel tax elec­tion and the spe­cial joint “re­la­tion­ship” meet­ing with the Hercules City Council yes­ter­day.
