The Vallejo school board will have a full plate during its meeting on Wednesday, including being asked to authorize negotiations with a firm regarding bond polling services, approving another student resource officer, and receiving a presentation on the Public Records Act.
District staff is asking for authorization to negotiate a contract for polling and information services — with the firm Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates — regarding a possible school bond. The numbers generated from the polling would be used to judge whether the Vallejo community supports a bond, staff said.
During a July meeting, Vallejo City Unified School District board trustee Burky Worel claimed that when the board voted 2-1 in February — with two members absent from the meeting — to approve seeking bids from firms, it violated board policy.
