Dixon Unified leaders, when they meet Thursday, are expected to approve a resolution certifying the Nov. 8 election results (the passage of Measure Q), hear a report on possibly eliminating the seventh and eighth grades at Dixon Montessori Charter School, and review the district’s mission and vision.
The five-member governing board, which includes newly appointed member Luke Foster, a Dixon attorney, likely will approve a resolution to certify the Nov. 8 election results. More than 55 percent of district voters approved Measure Q, a $30.4 million bond that will pay to upgrade several aging schools, including Old Dixon High, built in 1940, and Anderson Elementary, built in 1949.
The action will pave the way for the district to begin actual remodeling and construction, as necessary, at the school sites.
John Calise, director of facilities and operations, will offer an update to the trustees, including recommendations, for unspecified “construction delivery methods” related to Measure Q projects.
