The Pleasanton school board will be looking at whether to permanently bring back some of the jobs it restored on a one-time basis last year and bringing back some other jobs at its meeting tonight.
Restoring the jobs that were brought back last year, including elementary and middle school vice principals, custodians library assistants and counselors, would cost nearly $2.9 million.
Bringing back those and some others, such as a technology trainer and more custodians, along with allocating some money toward maintenance, would cost a total of more than $4 million.
Also tonight, the board will get a fresh look at Gov. Jerry Brown's budget proposal, which would likely bring in some new money to the district.
The board also will hear plans that could cut class sizes. Pleasanton Partnerships in Education has so far raised $156,000 through January, and Deputy Superintendent Luz Cazares is recommending the district continue with class sizes of 25-1 in first grade and lowering class sizes from 30-1 to 25-1 in second grade.
Cazares has also laid out a plan that could cut class sizes, depending on contributions to PPIE. If it raises another $65,000, that could cut class sizes in third grade from 30-1 to 28-1, and if it raises $175,000, that could cut third-grade class sizes to 27-1.
More than a dozen parents have been pushing since last year to make class size reductions a priority for the district.
The board is also set to approve, as part of its consent agenda, in which items are voted on as a whole without discussion, agreements with two developers.
The agreements are with Ponderosa Homes and SHAC Las Positas Apartments, a subsidiary of Summmerhill Homes. The firms would pay school mitigation fees, meant to offset the cost to the district for new students who would move in as new apartments are built.
The board meeting is set for 7 p.m. at the district offices, 4665 Bernal Ave.
