Education board to see John Muir Elementary design-build agreement, elect officers

MARTINEZ, Calif. – The Martinez Unified School District Board of Education will consider Monday authorizing Lathrop Construction Associates and HKIT Architects as the design-build team for the overhaul of John Muir Elementary School’s campus.

According the resolution which will be decided Monday, the team was determined to have offered the best value for the project, which is not to exceed $29,842,624.

The Board also will install incumbent members Deidre Siguenza and Bobbi Horack, who are returning after the Nov. 6 election, then select a new president, vice president and clerk. The Board also will set time, dates and places of the upcoming year’s regular meetings and establish committees.

Tom Doppe, director of educational services, will give reports on Dashboard evaluation metrics that show how District students are progressing in their education, and on modifications made to the Single Plans for Student Achievement for the District’s schools.

The School Site Councils for the schools have reviewed and made revisions to those plans, which are used to assure that campus resources address students’ academic, social, emotional and safety needs.

Assistant District Superintendent Helen Rossi will introduce a request the District can make to under state law for emergency California Average Daily Attendance funding. That money would cover allowance losses when schools were closed Nov. 16 because of poor air quality from Butte County’s wildfire smoke.

She also will present the District’s first interim budget report that covers expenditures and revenues from July 1 to Oct. 31.

The Board will meet in closed session at 6:15 p.m. Monday to consider a student’s expulsion. The regular meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. Monday in the District Board Room, 921 Susana St.
