The San Ramon Valley school board Tuesday (Feb. 25) is set to consider new policies pertaining specifically to employee breastfeeding and students who are pregnant or already parents.
The district currently doesn't have policies addressing either topic area, but the California School Boards Association (CSBA) and district staff recommend putting such guidelines in place.
Debates on the proposed "lactation accommodation" and "married/pregnant/parenting students" policies are among more than a dozen open-session items for Tuesday's meeting, scheduled to start at 7 p.m. in the boardrooms at 699 Old Orchard Drive in Danville.
In other business, district staff will give a presentation on preliminary budget assumptions, student enrollment and staffing projections for next fiscal year.
The board will consider approving initial bargaining topics for a successor contract with California School Employees Association units II and III. Union reps want to broach issues such as work hours, overtime, salaries, layoffs and evaluation procedures.
Board members will discuss selecting a child care provider for Hidden Hills Elementary School in San Ramon. They will also receive the Parcel Tax Oversight Committee's 2013 report.
The board will decide who to elect to the 2014 CSBA Delegate Assembly and weigh final approval for revisions to the policy and administrative regulation covering district revolving funds.
Board members will consider resolutions in support of naming next week as Week of the School Administrator and next month as Prescription Drug Abuse Awareness Month. They will also give recognition to the Intel Science Talent Search 2014 finalists and to the 2014 research semifinalists in the Junior Science and Humanities Symposium competition.
