RIPON - The elimination of two overflow K-3 classrooms at Ripon's Parkview and Colony Oak Elementary schools was approved by Ripon Unified trustees Tuesday night bringing a net savings of some $42,000.

A salary raise for Manteca Unified teachers is long overdue, said Ken Johnson, the president of the Manteca Educators Association which is in the midst of continuing salary negotiations with the school district.
During continuing teachers' salary negotiations, the specifics of behind-doors talks with representatives of the Manteca Educators Association are strictly confidential, Manteca Unified Deputy Superintendent Clark Burke said, explaining why he could not answer questions about statements made by the union members.
Parents of Manteca Unified students are invited to attend a free seminar about using OneNote – the software that students and staff will be using as part of the district's Going Digital initiative. By understanding OneNote, parents will be better able to support their children with their education needs.
