Board President Update
Board of Education Meeting on Tuesday, August 27

The Board will meet in the District Board Room at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 27.  As this is the first regularly scheduled meeting since school began, a traditional highlight will be reports from each principal about the opening of school at each campus.
Executive Director Jason Kurtenbach, Principals Issaic Gates and Alana Faure, and Assistant Principal Soomin Chao will be providing updates on actions taken by the District on Academics Advisory Committee topics from the 2018-2019 school year.  The Board will also hear from Mr. Kurtenbach. Dr. Gates and Javier Carbajal-Ramos from Pasadena City College about Dual Enrollment possibilities.
The Board will continue its consideration of the formation of a District task force called the Fiscal Resources Strategic Team (FiRST).  The purpose of FiRST would be to review, analyze and evaluate the District's current revenues, financial resources, assets and community support, and to identify other potential financial options, opportunities and alternatives.  The fiscal shortfalls the District is currently experiencing, and has experienced at various times throughout its history, affect the entire San Marino community, and FiRST would bring together District employees, parents, and community members who could provide valuable insight in their areas of the expertise and experience.
