School board may hire new Da Vinci principal on Thursday

Thursday’s meeting of the Davis school board may include an announcement of a new principal for the Da Vinci Charter Academy, which has a high school program serving several hundred students at the Valley Oak campus in East Davis, and a somewhat smaller junior high program on the Emerson Junior High campus in West Davis.

Assistant Superintendent Matt Best, who had served as Da Vinci principal until a few months ago, indicated that a candidate for the Da Vinci post likely will be recommended to the board this week. The Da Vinci post is the only site administrator position that the Davis school district is trying to fill this summer.

Elsewhere on the agenda, the school board is scheduled to conduct the routine annual public hearings to review each of the school district’s parcel taxes (Measures Q, W and A) as well as Community Facilities Districts Nos. 1 and 2.

Staff is recommending that after each of these voter-approved taxes is reviewed, the school board then approve a renewal of the current tax rate for each for the coming year.

This will be the final year for Measures Q and W, which expire June 30, 2012; they charge $320 per year per single-family home. This is the first year of a two-year span for Measure A, approved by voters in May; it levies $200 per year per single-family home.

The two Community Facilities District taxes are recommended for a roughly 4 percent increase for next year, as allowed by law.

The school board also is being asked to review and approve the 2011-12 Single Plan for Student Achievement, a document that must be approved for the district to receive certain categories of federal funding, and review and approve the 2011-12 Title I, Part A Ranking Decision, which designates which schools have sufficiently large percentages of low-income students to qualify for federal Title I funds.

The board also is scheduled to recognize student government leaders for the past academic year.

Thursday’s meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Community Chambers at Davis City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd. The meeting will be carried live on Davis cable Channel 17 and as streaming video on http://www.djusd.tv.
