•Adopting substantial completion contracts with F&H Construction for the Lathrop High stadium and swimming pool; the Neil Hafley School modernization (third phase);  and Lathrop School, where portable buildings there were recently moved from the now closed Lathrop Annex.
•Considering a school board meeting change, from Oct. 13 (Tuesday) to Oct. 12 (Monday), and doing away with Oct. 27 meeting.
•Appointing new architects for those projects eligible for state funding.
•Looking into possible solutions for future growth in the southwest Stockton community of Weston Ranch.
