A public hearing about money set aside for teacher effectiveness and school safety/emergency preparedness services are on the agenda when Dixon Unified leaders meet tonight.
Superintendent Brian Dolan will lead the hearing about the district’s plan for improving educator effectiveness that will be funded by Senate Bill 103, the Education Trailer Bill signed by Gov. Jerry Brown on Sept. 22.
In an effort to encourage and retain teachers during the state’s ongoing teacher shortage, it set aside nearly $500 million for school districts to begin programs that would boost the effectiveness of teachers and administrators, but especially for new teachers and administrators, guided by requirements adopted by the state Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
