MDUSD board to meet tonight to vote on layoff, hold closed session regarding top district administrator contracts and reorganization
The Mt. Diablo school board will hold a special meeting at 6 p.m. tonight to vote on the layoff of one PE teacher at Concord High, then a closed session to discuss the release of unspecified public employees, the contracts of the CFO and three assistant superintendents, and future reorganization.
The open session is in the district office board room at 1936 Carlotta Drive in Concord. Here is the agenda:
“1.0 Call to Order
1.1 President will call the meeting to order Info
2.0 Preliminary Business
2.1 Pledge of Allegiance and Roll Call Info
3.0 Public Comment
3.1 The public may address the Board regarding any item within the jurisdiction of the Board of Education of the Mt. Diablo Unified School District regardless of whether or not it is agendized on the Open or Closed Session agenda. These presentations are limited to three minutes each, or a total of thirty minutes for all speakers or the three minute limit may be shortened. Speakers are not allowed to yield their time. Info
4.0 Business/Action Items

5.0 Adjourn to Closed Session

5.2 Conference with Negotiators – Unrepresented Employees – Diablo Managers Association. Negotiators: Dr. Nellie Meyer and Larry Schoenke, Interim General Counsel Action
6.0 Reconvene Open Session
6.1 Report Out Action Taken in Closed Session Action
The agenda item for item 5.2 states: “Discussion of Superintendent’s Council Contracts and future reorganization.”
The superintendent’s council consists of: CFO Bryan Richards, Assistant Superintendent for Personnel Julie Braun-Martin, Assistant Superintendent for Student Achievement and School Support Rose Lock and Assistant Superintendent for Pupil Services/Special Education Kerri Mills. Although it also includes the general counsel, Braun-Martin has informed me that the current general counsel is on a post-retirement contract, so I don’t believe his contract is up for discussion at this time, especially since he will be meeting with the board along with Superintendent Nellie Meyer to discuss this agenda item.
Normally, the district webcasts the open portions of the meeting live and later archives them at: http://www.livestream.com/mtdiablounifiedschooldistrict/
Do you believe the board should renew the contracts for members of the superintendent’s council?
