Grass Valley School District to hold meeting

The Grass Valley school district board of trustees will hold a regular meeting at 7 p.m. today at the district administrative office on the 10000 block of Gilmore Way in Grass Valley.

Items in the consent agenda include approval of June and July 2014 bills, financial statements and item surplus lists. The acceptance of Lyman Glimore School choir teacher Roberta Frank’s resignation will also be addressed.

The board will consider or approve certified contracts for more than 40 school district staff. District Superintendent Erik Fredrickson will give a report on the status of the school facilities preparation for the 2014-15 school year.

In June, the Nevada County grand jury reported hazardous safety conditions at Grass Valley Charter school and Bell Hill Academy that include mold, access to dangerous chemicals, exposure to electrical outlets, and dry rot. The district and board have until Sept. 30 to provide a substantial response to the report.

A public hearing will be held at the meeting in regards to instructional materials and the adoption of math curriculum through Pearson’s Common Core Algebra 1 and college preparatory math for the 8th grade honors program.

The board will also consider approval of a software license and support agreement with Illuminate Education Inc. for assessment management data software for the upcoming school year that would cost more than $11,000.

A series of contracts with NETVAD Inc., a company that provides products centered around education, is also up for approval by the board.

Discussion over the district’s child care services and facilities is scheduled, along with notification from the California Department of Education that the district received a grant award for after-school education and safety programs.
