Video class, turn lane on high school district agenda

Nevada Joint Union High School District’s board of trustees is meeting at 6 p.m. tonight at the Nevada Union High School library. Items on the agenda include:

• Video partnership: Nevada Union High School Partnership Academy and video technology company Thomson Grass Valley will discuss their collaboration.

The academy is a “school within a school” located at NU, offering a track of telecommunications and video production courses. Thomson Grass Valley, the leading international video equipment manufacturer based in Nevada City, recently donated new cameras and a switchboard to the program for students to practice multi-camera production.

• Turn lane: Nevada County won a federal stimulus grant to expand a left turn lane on Magnolia Road in front of Bear River High School. The district will vote on giving .87 acres of land to the county to complete the construction, which could alleviate traffic congestion from lines of turning vehicles.

• New hires: Trustees will vote on hiring dozens of temporary and part-time employees, including substitute aides for special education classes, coaches, and choreographers for theater productions.

Nevada Union is at 11761 Ridge Road in Grass Valley. To see the full agenda, visit and click on this story.
