SRVUSD board to talk labor negotiations, review sufficiency of textbooks

Plus: Oct. 14 marks School Administrator Week and Digital Citizenship Week

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is set to have a busy agenda for their regular meeting on Tuesday night, where district officials will meet to discuss a series of routine issues including labor negotiations, textbook review and a handful of special presentations.

To start Tuesday’s meeting, trustees will consider selecting one of their own members to serve as a representative on the Delegate Assembly for the California School Boards Association.

While on the Assembly, the SRVUSD’s delegate will be tasked with representing their district’s interests. Delegates will have to attend two meetings a year and will have the opportunity to interact with the 279 other delegates representing school districts throughout the state.

Trustees will then hold a public hearing and listen to residents thoughts on the sufficiency of pupil textbooks and learning materials for kindergarten through twelfth grade.

An annual hearing that school districts in California are required to hold, after some discussion the board is expected to issue a Statement of Assurance that educational materials being provided to students for the 2019-20 school year are sufficient.

Next up, school board administrators will hold a series of discussions on initial labor negotiations being conducted with the San Ramon Valley Education Association (SRVEA) -- the SRVUSD’s teachers union -- with a special focus on teacher’s successor contract and salaries.

Trustees are also set to hear a special presentation on Educational Management Solutions, a student board member report on the goings-on at Dougherty Valley High School, and will consider issuing proclamations recognizing the week of Oct. 14-18 as both School Administrator Week and Digital Citizenship Week.

During a closed session held prior to the start of the board’s regular meeting, district officials will discuss ongoing labor negotiations with Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Keith Rogenski, confer will legal counsel over existing litigation with the California State Teachers' Retirement System and discuss appointing a new assistant director of assessment, research and evaluation.

The SRVUSD board is set to hold its regular meeting on Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the district offices, 699 Old Orchard Drive in Danville.
