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.

    I'm curious - where did the stipends come from? Is it a professional development fund the board has control over? A general fund for the board's discretion? Or was there a grant applied for and given?

    My teachers never took a trip, taught the 3Rs and were there for us kids. Sad now it's all about Me, Me, Me, Me and Free Travel and not about the kids. What a bunch of Hooey.

    Just another waste of taxpayer money remember to vote out any one that approves these paid vacations

    That would be an effective course of action, however, all of the Trustee seats up for election in November are incumbents running unopposed, with one exception, Area 4, and both candidates are newcomers.

    The staff at Matt Garcia needs training. Drive by Civic Center pond any day at lunchtime and you can see half the high school out there smoking pot, tobacco and e cigarettes, even though they have a closed campus, underage smoking is illegal and that they're right next to the police station. Maybe if the folks at Matt Garcia get trained they might learn how to discipline the kids.
