RIPON – Ripon Unified may spend upwards of $93,000 to upgrade software and/or replace computers.

Altogether, 364 computers are in need of upgrades. If changes are not made to the software they will no longer be supported by Microsoft.

Computers are just part of the agenda for tonight’s Ripon Unified School District board meeting.

Newcomer Christina Orlando and re-elected trustee Mike Fisher will be administered the oath of office by board Vice President Kit Oase.

Orlando, who will represent Area 4, was picked to take over the post formerly occupied by Jack DeLiddo, who opted not to run for another term.

Fisher was also up for re-election but was unchallenged for his seat.

The board, in addition, could elect a new president, vice president and clerk during the annual organizational meeting.

Trustees will likely appoint Superintendent Louise Johnson as their secretary and consider adopting the 2013 meeting calendar.

Other agenda items include:

• The board recognizing Aidan Svay as winner of the San Joaquin County Hospice Tree of Lights competition.

• Stephanie Hobbs, president of the Ripon Community Athletic Foundation, will provide an update on the Stouffer Field revitalization efforts.

• Jennifer Brogan, Ripon PALSS representative, is scheduled to report on recent activities while introducing the newly elected Booster Club.

• Trustees will discuss the logistics and mobilization plan for reconstruction of Weston and Colony Oak schools thanks to the voter-approved Measure G.

• They’ll also consider a waiver of facilities-use fees for the Relay for Life fashion show fundraiser.
