Look for the Ripon Unified school board to approve the Ag Incentive Grant.

The Agricultural Career Technical Education Incentive Grant, as reauthorized by the State of California, for the 2014-15 school year.

According to the staff report, this grant will provide an additional $22,912 to the Ag program to continue providing “high quality program to students at Ripon High.”

It’s a matching fund, meaning that money will come from the district’s Vocational Education Act, Regional Occupational Education, and the Clinton School Farm.

Trustees will convene on this matter and more in the City of Ripon’s Council Chambers, 259 N. Wilma Ave., at the 7 p.m. open session on Monday.

In other agenda items:

• Trustees will look to accept, with regret, the resignations of Weston learning center aid Amie Walker, Park View food services’ Natalie Huff, and Matt Ott.

• They’ll accept the August hires of Yi Zhu (teacher) and Daniel Lehr (teacher) at Ripon Elementary; Brett Grenz (teacher) at Ripona Elementary; Tammy Townsend (teacher) and Sandra Porter (teacher) at Park View; Mieguel Vigil (teacher) and Adrienne Beltrami (teacher) at Ripon High; Jessica Weber (psychologist), Kris Block (AP technician) and Raquel Babauta (receptionist) at the district office; and Janeen Eisenhauer (Nutritional Service) and Leah Calvo (Nutritional Service) in Food Service.

• The board will hear a presentation on the state of the district and go over the California School Board Association policy updates.
