Fairfield-Suisun Unified leaders on Thursday will face a relatively light agenda, except for item 14, a review and possible approval of Superintendent Kris Corey’s draft letter to the Solano County Grand Jury report, “Educational Rights of Solano County Homeless Children and Youth.”
Corey’s letter, addressed to Judge Robert C. Fracchia, takes issue with some of the report’s findings and concurs with others. It also clarifies and informs several grand jury recommendations.
She partly disagreed with the first finding, about whether district officials offered “conflicting statistics” in reporting the number of homeless children in the sprawling district, the county’s largest, with more than 21,500 students in more than two dozen campuses.
And she agreed with two recommendations, that reporting data be “accurate and verifiable” and that the district (and others countywide) find “more effective ways” of identifying homeless students.
