What: Davis Board of Education meeting

When: 7 p.m. Thursday

The Davis Board of Education will hear a school climate progress report from coordinators Mel Lewis and Kate Snow when the trustees meet on Thursday. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Community Chambers at Davis City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd.

The report will cover topics including parent engagement efforts at Montgomery Elementary School; student mentoring by UC Davis students from the Nu Alpha Kappa fraternity and Sigma Pi Alpha sorority; an update on the district’s efforts to prevent bullying of students; an update on the 2011 California Healthy Kids survey; and plans to conduct another Healthy Kids survey in 2013.

The school climate progress report originally had been scheduled for a board meeting in October, but was held over until this month as trustees focused on budget alternatives and contingency plans last month. The goal of the climate coordinator is to foster a safe environment in which all students, staff and caregivers feel comfortable, accepted and valued.

Elsewhere on the agenda, the board will review proposed policies covering intradistrict open enrollment and interdistrict attendance.

On the consent agenda, trustees will consider a recommendation to increase the number of workdays for the principal of King High School from 202 to 213 days per academic year, putting that job at the same number of workdays as the principal of the Davis School for Independent Study.

The board also will confirm the date of the annual organization meeting, at which newly elected school board members are sworn in, outgoing trustees are recognized, and committee assignments for the coming year are announced. This year’s annual organization meeting is expected to take place on Dec. 20.

Board president Susan Lovenburg was re-elected last week, and Nancy Peterson was elected to replace retiring trustee Richard Harris.

Thursday’s meeting will be carried live on Davis cable Channel 17 and live as streaming video at www.djusd.tv.
