Agenda for March

Dear Miller Creek Community,

The Miller Creek School District Regular Board Meeting Agenda for March 14, 2023 has been posted here.

The agenda for the meeting includes:

  • At the beginning of the meeting, Board Trustees will hear about the recent reclassification ceremony in the district held to recognize the accomplishment of some of our multilingual students who have achieved English proficiency. Also during the recognition item on the agenda, Trustees will hear from staff at Vallecito Elementary on the Distinguished School honor and their experience at the awards ceremony in Los Angeles.
  • The Trustees will discuss and consider approval of an updated Land Acknowledgement document. The Land Acknowledgement was drafted by parent volunteers of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) committee and supported by the District District DEI committee. The documents attached include the Land Acknowledgement and additional supporting documentation.
  • Trustees will hear the presentation of the 2nd Interim Budget Report, which represents the District’s financial position as of Jan 31st. The report requires approval.
  • The Board will review and consider approval of the 2023-24 School Calendar.
  • The Board will consider a curriculum adoption of a Phonics Program. The Miller Creek English Language Arts Lead Team identified a need for a systematic phonics curriculum and recommended a materials pilot in October 2022. All elementary teachers were invited to participate in one of two teams. The Review Team identified the curriculum to pilot and reviewed feedback from pilot teachers to make a recommendation for adoption. The Review Team’s recommendations will be presented by members of the Pilot and Review teams.

Also on this agenda, Trustees will consider routine personnel actions related to leave requests, temporary hiring, and new hires, approval of contracts for emergency and necessary repairs, professional expert contracts for services, and will hear an update on the universal meal program.
