RESCHEDULED: Santa Rosa City Schools has rescheduled the special meeting of the board of education to address the development of a charter school petition for a Spanish-language dual immersion program to Dec. 4. The rescheduled meeting will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the curriculum and instruction training room, 211 Ridgway Ave.
A previously scheduled meeting was cancelled because of heavy rains.
LATEST UPDATE: The meeting scheduled for Thursday night has been cancelled because of weather.
ANOTHER UPDATE: The advisory committee meeting Thursday to discuss plans for a Spanish-language dual immersion program for Santa Rosa City Schools is the third installment in a series of planning meetings and differs from the community input meetings that have been held in recent weeks.
The focus of the Thursday night meeting will be to work on the development of a charter school petition to be submitted to the school board. It is a public meeting and members of the community will have an opportunity for input.
Tomorrow’s meeting was changed to a special meeting of the board of education because a majority of members of the seven-member board are expected to attend. District officials sent out a notice announcing the change Wednesday morning.
Officials expect to have signatures from parents indicating intent to enroll children by December. The board is set to vote on charter language in January or February.
The meeting will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the curriculum and instruction staff training room, 211 Ridgway Ave. in Santa Rosa.
District officials are pressing to get the program open to kindergarten and possibly first graders in the fall.
On the community meeting schedule, a final meeting is scheduled for 6:30-8 p.m. Dec. 6th at the Cook Middle School Library, 2480 Sebastopol Rd. Interested families are invited to attend.
