Martinez Unified School District Board meets Monday, Aug. 12, 2019, at 6:30 p.m. at the MUSD office, 921 Susana Street
(There will be a private, closed session at 5:30 p.m.)
Topics of interest on the agenda include a revised MUSD budget. California’s school districts are required to in form the public of changes to their budget after they have received the Governor’s state budget.
(Districts make their budgets before the governor announces the state budget, therefore the districts do not actually know how much funding they will be receiving from the state, thus the need for adjustments.)
The MUSD board may adopt a resolution to approve a provisional Internship request. The details are on an exhibit available at the MUSD office.
There will be the first reading of California School Boards Association policies and administrative regulations. In keeping with the updating of its policies, the Board is being asked to review a December 2016 change to Student Services BP and AR 5141.21, BP Option A or B ( check with MUSD for details).
In spring, MUSD asked Integrated Pest management, which is responsible for pest and weed control for the district, to find ways to reduce the use of and/or eliminate the use of Roundup (Glyphosate). Superintendent CJ Cammack will report on this. East Bay Regional Parks implemented a pilot program to reduce the use of glyphosate and by the of 2018, they had been able to reduce its use by 66 percent. The Mt. Diablo Unified District resolved to eliminate the use of it.
A Measure R Project update report on progress at Las Juntas, John Swett, and Morello Park Elementary schools is on the agenda.
Some textbooks are going to be discarded. Find out more on that at the MUSD office.
