The Pleasanton school board will meet Tuesday night to hear a report on the non-traditional calendar for the 2015-16 school year in an open session at 7 p.m. in the school district's board room at 4665 Bernal Ave.
There are three possible calendar options being looked at, an early-start calendar and two modified calendars.
The early-start calendar offers everything the current traditional calendar has but school will start and end earlier, the first semester will end before winter break, spring break will be longer and summer break will be shorter.
The modified calendars offer an early start/finish for the school year, a fall break in October, the first semester ending before winter break, a longer spring break and a shorter summer break.
In the same open session, the board will also discuss if the Staggered Literacy Program will continue for third graders.
At the May 13 board meeting, the board approved continuing the program for first and second grade during the 2014-15 school year but they delayed making a decision on continuing it for third grade due to mixed results received from third grade teachers, the increased third grade curriculum along with Common Core Standards and the loss of instruction time.
Another item on the agenda includes the discussion and possible action to approve a resolution "authorizing the issuance of PUSD 2013 General Obligation Refunding Bonds with an authorization not to exceed $13.0M."
At the closed session Tuesday starting at 5 p.m., the board will discuss "the discipline, release or dismissal of a public employee," and also will confer with legal counsel about "Anticipated Litigation Significant exposure to litigation."
The board will also appoint the director of special education, Amador Valley High School's vice principals and Foothill High School's vice principal.
Any action taken in closed session will be reported at the regular school board meeting.
