The Vallejo City Unified School District Board of Trustees is set to consider approving a slew of contracts with outside consultants, including five aimed at addressing “disproportionality” in suspensions and special education referral.
Also at Wednesday’s meeting, members will consider a $19,360 contract with DPREP, Inc., for CPR/First Aid and Active Shooter Response Training, and De-escalation, Tactical Communications, and K-12 Bus Driver Safety Awareness. And they’ll consider a $21,000 contract for Fiscal Crisis & Management Assistance Team to conduct a review of the district’s Operations Department and another $14,500 to do the same with the Human Resources Department.
The trustees also plan to deny the Charter Petition for the Establishment of Elite Public Schools, proposed by former superintendent Ramona Bishop.
