I just want to remind you that the Mt. Diablo school board has rescheduled its regular Tuesday meeting to Wednesday, Nov. 17, in order to give the district more time to analyze its budget in light of the recently approved state budget.
This will be the last meeting for trustees Dick Allen and Paul Strange, who did not seek re-election at the expiration of their terms. Allen has served 13 years and Strange has been on the board since 2006.
Also, the board has canceled its second meeting of November, due to Thanksgiving week holidays.
The final board meeting of the year will be held Dec. 14, when re-elected trustee Linda Mayo will be sworn into office, along with newly elected trustees Cheryl Hansen and Lynne Dennler.
Here are some other upcoming meetings in November:
School Closure Advisory Committee:
5:30-8 p.m. tonight (Thursday, Nov. 4) at Willow Creek Center
5:30-8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 8 at Willow Creek Center
5:30-8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 15 at Willow Creek Center
Superintendent’s Parent Advisory Committee:
7-10 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 10 at the Willow Creek Center to discuss assessment and demographics data
NOTE: Also on Wednesday, Nov. 10, the Contra Costa County Board of Education expects to meet to discuss conditions of approval for the K12 Flex Charter School, which may open in the Mt. Diablo school district in the fall.
SCHOOL BREAKS: There will be no school for students in the Mt. Diablo district Nov. 11-12 and Nov. 22-26, due to Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving holidays.
