The Vallejo school board agreed to postpone its search for a public relations consultant until it could hold a discussion on the job duties for the position.
Suggested by Vallejo City Unified School District Trustee Ward “Ace” Stewart, the board in a 3-2 vote tabled approving releasing a request for qualifications for the consultant.
VCUSD Board President Tony Ubalde and Vice President Ruscal Canyangyang voted against.
According to a staff report, the district was asking the board to spend $1,000 from the general fund to advertise for a public information consultant.
The consultant would support the VCUSD by “providing feedback on press release, newsletters, reports and brochures and ensure dissemination of positive stories about VCUSD to local, state and national media outlets,” district staff said in the same report.
