Summer school not guaranteed at city schools

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – The San Diego Unified School District Board of
Education will consider Tuesday whether to operate a summer school session this
year at a cost of about $1 million.

The proposal going before the board would include a four-week program
for about 1,500 elementary school students in Grades 1 and 3 who are at risk of
being retained, a four-week session for about 600 eighth graders who face
retention, and six weeks of schooling for around 600 high school juniors and
seniors who need to make up a grade in a core class.

The plan also includes a one-day orientation for about 7,200 students
who will be entering high school.

Board members today also are scheduled to:

— decide whether to ratify an amended memorandum of understanding with
the district's 63 police officers to maintain current salary levels and give
them five unpaid days off for the third year in a row;

— consider a proposal to limit campaign contributions to individuals,
not organizations; and

— weigh whether to declare Barnard Elementary School in the Midway
District to be “excess property,” which would allow the board to sell the
land in the future.
