Policies and Procedures
On November 9, 2010, the Board of Education was updated on the progress of the Task Force and approved in concept the Blueprint to Accelerate Achievement of
African American and African Students. The Task Force will continue to meet and develop recommendations that include scope, proposed actions related to each of the four Focus Areas, budgetary
implications, a prioritized implementation plan, and a proposed timeline to address the needs of our African American and African students. All recommendations will be developed to complement and
comply with federal mandates, California Education Code, district policy, collective bargaining agreements and other authoritative directives. Recommendations will also be built to support the
staffing and budgeting realities of the district during this prolonged state-wide fiscal crisis.
