A facilities update and a plan to achieve racial and ethnic balance are on the agenda when the Kairos Public School Vacaville Academy board of directors meets Monday night in Vacaville.
School executive director Jared Austin, who has led the K-8 Elm Street campus for three years, will make both presentations to the independent charter school’s seven-member board.
The agenda document about the facilities update is brief, one sentence, indicating that Austin would present information about the school and the Kairos Innovative Scholars Program facilities projects.
Of the plan to achieve racial and ethnic balance, he will cite the law, from the California Education Code, that governs the matter: A charter school “will achieve racial and ethnic balance” that reflects the district to which it is aligned. Kairos, with more than 500 students, is aligned with Vacaville Unified, with some 12,500 students, but, based on data from VUSD, the differences are startling.
