What: Davis Board of Education meeting

When: 6 p.m. Thursday

Where: Community Chambers, City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd.

Watch it: Live on Davis cable Channel 17 and as streaming video on www.djusd.tv

Thursday’s meeting of the Davis Board of Education will start one hour earlier than usual — at 6 p.m., rather than 7 p.m. — in the Community Chambers at Davis City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd.

The main item on the agenda is the swearing-in of recently elected trustees Susan Lovenburg, who will start her second term, and Nancy Peterson, a new member. A brief reception will follow the administration of the oath of office.

The meeting also will include the annual election of officers, as Lovenburg is expected to pass the gavel as board president to trustee Sheila Allen, who will announce the committee assignments for the five trustees for the coming year.

Elsewhere on the agenda, the school board will:

* Receive the first interim financial report from Associate Superintendent Bruce Colby. This state-mandated report will offer a view of the school district’s financial situation as a work in progress: Much depends on the specifics contained in the budgetary proposals that Gov. Jerry Brown is expected to announce on Jan. 10.

* Hear a report on academic achievement in the school district’s Da Vinci Charter Academy program.

* Conduct a brief public hearing and the approve a general waiver relating to extended school year services, including transportation, janitorial and maintenance. The Davis school district has long contracted with the Woodland school district to provide transportation services for special education students living in Davis. (In fact, the Davis school district owns no buses.) The proposed changes would align aspects of Davis’ operations with those of Woodland, and this fine-tuning would save the Davis school district about $13,000 over the course of a school year.

* Hear “sunshine proposals” for the 2013-14 academic and budgetary year from the California School Employees Association — representing secretaries, maintenance, food/nutrition and related employees — and from the Davis Teachers Association —representing teachers, librarians, psychologists and other certificated employees.

The district and its teachers have yet to announce an agreement on a contract for the 2012-13 school year, which is now nearly half over. There may be a negotiation session between the two parties in January.

Thursday’s meeting will be carried live on Davis cable Channel 17 and as streaming video on www.djusd.tv. The meeting also will be posted for viewing on demand at www.djusd.tv a few days after the meeting.
