Community members will have an opportunity to share their concerns about school safety on Wednesday.
The Vallejo City Unified School District Board of Education is holding a special listening session to hear citizens’ comments regarding school safety and how recent violence in Vallejo impacts the city’s schools.
Time is also reserved for board members and VCUSD Superintendent Ramona Bishop to offer comments about safety, according to the agenda.
The district has come under fire recently from parents and board members who have wished to discuss the issue of safety after the slaying of a Jesse Bethel High School student in May.
Kenneth Maxwell “Max” Rusk, 17, was killed on a trail that runs along the side of the school.
Weeks after Rusk’s death, Vallejo police responded to a report of a large fight at Vallejo High School.
