The San Ramon Valley Unified School District Board of Education is set to have a relatively routine meeting on Tuesday, when district officials meet to discuss a number of administrative matters relating to school operations.
Topics set to be discussed during the regular meeting include a series of reports on schools and student achievement data, the reduction of classified management positions and the appointment of new officials to several administrative positions.
In response to the announcement that the district’s deputy superintendent of educational services Toni Taylor will be retiring effective January 2020, the school board will begin the meeting with a discussion on appointing a new administrator to her position -- a discussion that will be held during a closed session held prior to the start of the board’s regular meeting.
In addition to discussing a new assistant superintendent of educational services, the board will also consider appointing a new executive director of elementary education, director of instructional services, business manager and assistant director of facilities.
As a part of that discussion, district staff have recommended that current Dougherty Valley High School principal Dave Kravitz be appointed to a district-level position. If approved, the board will discuss appointing a replacement.
To close out staffing appointments, board members will also consider appointing a new assistant principal at an unspecified high school.
Then the board will hear a special report from a California High School student about the goings-on at the San Ramon campus, followed by a school administrator's presentation on the activities at Neil Armstrong Elementary School.
District officials are also set to hear presentations on potential future public Safety Power Shutoffs from PG&E -- several SRVUSD schools lost power during last month’s shutoff event.
To close out regular agenda items, the board will consider eliminating and/or reducing several classified management positions, which district officials say will reduce district expenditures by approximately $575,000 per year.
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.
