Mt. Diablo school district trustees Brian Lawrence and Barbara Oaks — who were both elected in November — will pair up to explain “Changes and Challenges” in the district during a Diablo Valley Democratic Club meeting later this month. They will also touch on statewide education issues.
Here are additional details, reposted from a Walnut Creek Journal news brief:
“The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the Ygnacio Valley Library, 2661 Oak Grove Road, Walnut Creek.
Lawrence and Oaks are part of a new board majority pledging more openness and transparency. Lawrence is a school district parent, a mentor for at-risk youth and a volunteer for school sports. Oaks retired from the district in 2011 after serving a total of 25 years as teacher, vice principal and principal at College Park High School. Her grandchild attends kindergarten in the district.
