The Pleasanton school board will be taking another look at the previously-approved modified lite calendar during tonight's school board meeting.
During the Dec. 9 meeting, newly-elected school board member Mark Miller requested that the calendar item be put on a future agenda for discussion and possible action to see how the board would like to proceed with the item.
The modified lite calendar, starting the 2015-16 school year, was approved 4-1 at the June 17, 2014 board meeting -- with Trustee Valerie Arkin in dissent.
At the Sept. 9, 2014 meeting, the calendar item was brought back for report and possible action to rescind June's approval. The board voted 3-2 against the motion to rescind, with Trustee Arkin and Jamie Hintzke voting for the rescission.
The board will discuss and possibly consider the rescission of June's approval during open session at 7 p.m. in the district's boardroom, 4665 Bernal Avenue.
During Tuesday's closed session, starting at 5 p.m., the board will discuss with legal counsel and possibly take action on the lawsuit filed by former Walnut Grove principal Jon Vranesh against the Pleasanton school district.
The former principal filed a lawsuit Oct. 17, but has not yet specified the amount of monetary damages sought.
Vranesh, who was placed on administrative leave in October 2013 for allegedly creating a "hostile work environment" at the school site, has asked for "economic and non-economic damages according to proof, reinstatement to his position with back pay, and punitive damages against the individual defendants … according to proof," and attorneys' fees.
The board held a special closed-door meeting Oct. 22, 2014 to discuss and possibly take action on the lawsuit, however, no action was taken.
Also during closed session, the board will consider and possibly take action on "the appointment, employment, evaluation of performance, discipline/release, or dismissal of a public employee."
The name and position of the employee was not released.
In other the business, the board will appoint an elementary interim principal.
Any action taken in closed session will be reported during open session.
