An update on Measure Q and a teachers union contract for 2016-17 are on the agenda when Dixon Unified leaders meet Thursday in Dixon.
Superintendent Brian Dolan will encourage trustees, district staff and the general public to vote on Election Day, Tuesday, as “an encouragement for all eligible voters to get out and exercise their right” to vote.
If approved by 55 percent of voters, the $30.4 million general obligation bond will pay for upgrades and modernization of several of the rural district’s campuses, including Old Dixon High, built in 1940, and Anderson Elementary, built in 1949.
Leanne Medina-Estrada, director of human resources, and Shawn Tutt, president of the Dixon Teachers Association, will present the DTA’s initial collective bargaining proposal, or “sunshine” proposal, for the current academic year.
