School board to salute CEF president, assess district developments
Outgoing Claremont Educational Foundation President Liz Weigand will be recognized at the next meeting of the Claremont Unified School District Board of Education, set for Thursday, October 4 at 6:30 p.m.
Another ceremonial item will be the appointment and swearing in of the non-voting CUSD student board member from Claremont High School for the 2012-2013 school year.
Other items on the agenda include a report from San Antonio High School’s student board member and an informational report on the status of the Single School Plans for Student Achievement at Condit, Danbury and Mountain View Elementary Schools.
Also on the agenda is a quarterly Report on William Uniform Complaints. Attendees may expect to hear about the status of a report filed during the last school year alleging that mold and water damage was endangering Claremont High School students and staffers and that the complainant encountered a hostile atmosphere in the wake of filing his report. The school has made every effort to remediate any such facilities problems and denies that the whistleblower has been discriminated against, said Kevin Ward, CUSD assistant superintendent and compliance officer, in a previous interview.
The district will also be ratifying CUSD’s choice to participate in a new pool for purchasing employee benefits, the California Schools Voluntary Employee Benefits Association. The change comes because the benefit trust CUSD has used for the past 20 years lost its economic competitiveness due to membership drop-out.
The school board meeting will be held at the Richard S. Kirkendall Education Center, located at 170 W. San Jose Avenue in Claremont.
