The Pleasanton school district's board of trustees is set to accept tonight the resignation of Jan Steed, former principal of Walnut Grove Elementary who was reassigned in January to a new district position as assistant director of adult/career technical education.
Steed's resignation will be accepted in a personnel document package during approval of the consent agenda, which is made up of items considered routine and is voted upon once as a group of several items.
Steed was hired for the newly created position in January after two years as Walnut Grove's principal. Chris Connor took over as interim principal in mid-January.
Steed, whose resignation takes effect June 30, said via email that she has been told to direct all questions to the district's human resources department.
District spokesman Patrick Gannon confirmed Steed had resigned from the district. He said he couldn't comment on why she resigned but said her position will be posted soon.
Also at Tuesday's meeting, the board will also hear presentations on the second interim report for the district's budget as of Jan. 31.
Some highlights of that report are that the Local Control Funding Formula -- part of the district's revenue -- increased about $66,000 since the last report, slightly closing a funding gap. The supplemental budget, which is used to provide services to socio-economically disadvantaged, foster care and English-language learner students, was increased from $2 million to $2.1 million.
The proposed general fund ending balance is projected to be $16.7 million, increased from $16.4 as stated in the last budget update.
Staff also noted the district's costs overall are expected to increase in the next seven years since the district's required share of retirement costs will nearly double over that time.
