FAIRFIELD — Two staff members from B. Gale Wilson School and two staff members from the Matt Garcia Learning Center plan to attend the Flippen Teen Leadership Certification Professional Development in Phoenix, Ariz., according to a staff report that Fairfield-Suisun School District trustees will take up Thursday.
The Flippen Group training prepares instructors to teach teen leadership, notes the report. Cost for the Oct. 24 trip is $4,800.
Capturing Kids’ Hearts training is a prerequisite for the teen certification. A $128,900 contract for Capturing Kids’ Hearts training won school board approval in July.
The Flippen Group in College Station, Texas, will provide professional development in Fairfield “to promote positive school and district cultures,” according to the yearlong contract.
Trustees approved 15 Fairfield-Suisun district employees traveling in July to San Diego to attend a Capturing Kids’ Hearts conference at a cost of $10,886. The school district received stipends for staff to attend the training in Southern California.
The school board meets at 6 p.m. in the central district office board room at 2490 Hilborn Road in Fairfield.
