How the Vallejo City Unified School District is going to address its students’ poor standardized test scores is scheduled for discussion at Wednesday’s school board meeting.
Some of the other items include the district’s business office action plan, a progress report on its plan for increasing the number of students graduating college and/or career ready and an update on staffing.
A report on the California School Dashboard — data reported through the state information systems and by local districts, which is required to be updated by Nov. 16, is also on the agenda as are a slew of contracts with outside vendors.To qualify for its $4 million in federal funds, state law requires district schools to develop single school plans for student achievement, aimed at bringing all students’ academic performance to state standards level. Only Vallejo Charter School has developed a Local Control Accountability Plan instead. The plans must be reviewed annually and submitted to the Governing Board for approval.
