In a special meeting, the school board will hear community feedback on two pressing issues facing the Pleasanton Unified School District: the superintendent search and the school funding deficit.
Representatives from Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates, a search firm hired to help find Pleasanton a new superintendent after John Casey announced his plans to retire in June, will reveal the leadership profile that contains data from their citywide survey.
In the last several weeks, representatives have met with parents, school employees and members from various organizations in order to discover desired qualities for a new district leader.
This portion of the meeting, held in Amador Valley High School's multipurpose room, is scheduled to last from 6 to 7 p.m.
Following that item is the special budget workshop where staff will review and consider feedback from the community regarding the now $8-million deficit facing PUSD. The state of education is likely to change in the coming year as there are many popular programs -- such as class-size reduction, reading specialists and counselors -- that could be cut in order to save money.
Tonight's meeting will be webcast live, through the school district website, and will also be recorded to be broadcast later on community television's Channel 28.
