Ripon board may OK $33.7M budget plan
colony school

Work at Colony Oak Elementary School continues to move forward.

An update of that effort will be provided at Monday’s Ripon Unified school board meeting inside the Council Chambers at 259 N. Wilma Ave.

The open session begins at 7 p.m.

Project Manager Deanna Shirlock of CT Brayton & Sons is scheduled to provide an update on the reconstruction efforts at the kindergarten-through-eighth grade campus.

Thus far, the framing and the canopy steel of the five buildings under construction are completed.

Work on one of the well sites is also in need of final approval from the Division of State Architect.

In other agenda items:

  • The board will look to approve the 2018-2019 proposed financial budget, in accordance with Educational Code requiring Local Educational Agencies adopt a budget on or before July 1. A public hearing was held last week on the proposed $33.7 million RUSD budget.
  • Kathy Coleman, Director of Curriculum and Categorical Programs, will give a presentation on the Consolidated Application to be submitted to the state in order for RUSD to obtain federal funding for categorical programs.
  • Trustees could look to appointing Ripon High Principal Keith Rangel as California Interscholastic Federation’s representative for RUSD during the upcoming school year.
