By From page A4 | January 09, 2014

VACAVILLE — In its first meeting of the new year, the Vacaville School Board is set to take up a pair of measures dealing with the Local Control Funding Formula and Common Core State Standards.

The meeting is set for 7 p.m. Thursday at the Educational Services Center, 401 Nut Tree Road.

First up is an agreement with Roebbelen Contractors for computer facility upgrades related to the implementation of the new Local Control Funding Formula.

According to staff reports, the work is to include electrical power and data installation, reconfigurations and improvements to various existing classrooms and other rooms for conversion to computer labs, furniture and student computers, software and hardware.

The project is not to exceed $500,000 and will be paid for with one-time money from the state for the implementation of LCFF.

Staff reports say the project is to be done in two phases, with Phase 1 to be completed by April 7 and Phase 2 in the summer.

Also on the agenda, the board is to consider a Common Core Grant Implementation plan.

The district is looking at how to apply more than $2.5 million in funding from the state to prepare for the new Common Core State Standards.

Among the allowable uses are professional development, instructional materials and integration of academic content standards through technology-based instruction for the purpose of improving the academic performance of students.

Staff reports show that the money is to be used between July 2013 and June 2015.
