Susan Girimonte, senior director for educational services, will lead the discussion on the I-STAR Project. An acronym for Individual Self-Esteem and Transition to Adolescence with Respect, it is an international network of researchers working together with professionals from a wide range of disciplines, focusing on the transition from childhood to adulthood.
Superintendent Brian Dolan will convene a public hearing on the petition to renew the charter for Dixon Montessori School.
In other matters, Dolan will lead a discussion on student access to the band program and the Local Control Accountability Plan. The plan is a key component of Gov. Jerry Brown’s Local Control Funding Formula. A LCAP, as it is called for short, lays out what educators, governing boards and teachers must do to educate students and how they are going to measure results.
