SRVUSD board to talk labor negotiations, student achievement data

Plus: Financial services contract, Native American Heritage Month

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District Board of Education is scheduled to hold its regular meeting on Tuesday evening to discuss the pressing issues facing the district such as labor negotiations and financial services.

To start Tuesday’s meeting, the board will hear a series of reports on the activities of students and staff at Del Amigo High and Bollinger Canyon Elementary schools, as well as a special presentation on student achievement data.

In honor of the region’s indigenous population, trustees are also set to recognize November as Native American Heritage Month.

For the evening’s main topic of conversation, board members will receive an update on the status of negotiations between district management officials and representatives from the Service Employee International Union Local 121.

Then, trustees will consider consider approving a contract for financial advisory services to help advise district officials on issues that relate to general obligation bonds, tax revenue anticipation notes, certificates of participation and other financial issues. District staff have recommended trustees sign a contract worth up to $49,500 with Fieldman Rolapp to fulfill this need.

To complement the financial adviser, district staff have recommended the council also agree to a contract with TBWB Strategies in order to assist in data, polling and communication with residents about a possible future general obligation bond worth $6,500 a month, plus incidental costs.

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.

During the board’s closed session, which will be held prior to the start of its regular open meeting, trustees will meet to discuss labor negotiations with labor negotiator and assistant superintendent of human resources Keith Rogenski, review existing litigation, and discuss hiring a new middle school assistant principal as well as a director of instructional services and district communications.
