MDUSD board to meet Monday with Walnut Creek City Council

One of Mt. Diablo school board President Cheryl Hansen’s goals has been to begin meeting again with City Councils in each of the cities served by the district. Although the board did this many years ago, it stopped the practice and has had sometimes icy relations with some city leaders, such as those in Clayton, due in part to the Clayton Valley High charter conversion.

When I covered the Walnut Creek City Council several years ago, city leaders met about once a year with the Walnut Creek School District, but complained that Mt. Diablo district officials did not seem interested in holding similar meetings.

Now, the idea is being revived and the leaders of both agencies will meet at 6:30 p.m. Monday at Walnut Acres Elementary to discuss issues of mutual interest. The meeting is in the multiuse room at 180 Cerezo Drive in Walnut Creek.

Here is the agenda:

a. Pledge of Allegiance
b. Roll Call
c. Comments from (Board President) Cheryl Hansen, (Mayor) Cindy Silva

a. Boundaries / Enrollment (handouts)
b. Programs
c. Building Projects
d. Academic Achievement


a. Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)
b. Common Core

a. Crossing Guards and Crisis Counselors
b. After School Programs
c. Other (AAA, CAE Programs, Library Services, Aquatics, Ball Fields)



Directions to Walnut Acres
From Walnut Creek: Ygnacio Valley Rd. to Wiget Ln. Right on Wiget Ln. to Cerezo Dr. Left on Cerezo Dr.
From Concord: Oak Grove Rd. to Ygnacio Valley Rd. Right on Ygnacio Valley Rd. to Wiget Ln. Left on
Wiget Ln. Left on Cerezo Dr”

Although both agencies livestream and videotape their regular board meetings, it is unclear whether this meeting will be livestreamed or videotaped. I have been told by the Walnut Creek city clerk that the city won’t be videotaping the meeting. I have left messages with the district to find out if the district will.

As a reminder, the board met with the Pleasant Hill City Council April 15.

What issues do you think are most important for district trustees and Walnut Creek council members to discuss?

OCT. 7 UPDATE: I have been informed that tonight’s meeting will be livestreamed and videotaped.
