Approval of online courses for physical education credit; the preliminary approval of the 2015-16 LCAP action plan, including the hiring of two full-time intervention specialists, primarily for English-language learners; and approval of a $927,000 contract for a district food-service provider are on the agenda when Travis Unified leaders meet tonight.
Jim Bryan, assistant superintendent for educational services, will lead the presentation about the PE credit alternative, which, reportedly, district parents are requesting. He will recommend its approval, with conditions.
According to agenda documents, some students say their schedules are “impacted” due to their involvement with school programs such as leadership, music and other electives. It is difficult to meet entrance requirements at some four-year California colleges “while also maintaining enrollment in elective programs,” Bryan wrote in a summary note to the five-member board.
