Assistant Superintendent Marie Morgan will ask Benicia trustees to approve a plan Thursday to implement Common Core Standards in Benicia’s schools.
The Common Core State Standards Implementation Fund Expenditure plan will have a public hearing during the regular Benicia Unified School District board meeting.
Assembly Bill 86 appropriated $1.25 billion statewide, or about $200 per student based on last year’s enrollment, to support the implementation of Common Core this school year, Morgan wrote in a report to the board. In Benicia, based on the 2012-13 enrollment of 4,890 students, that amounts to approximately $978,800.
