Monrovia Schools: Common Core; Writing with Legos; Salary Increase; Inhumanity; Honorees; Dollars for Books

At its April 23, 7 p.m. meeting (agenda: ) the Monrovia School Board will ...

~ Consider adopting a plan for how to spend $1,192,914 in Common Core funds from the state. The district has to have a plan to receive the money.

~ Get a report on summer school classes. I'm particularly interested in "Creative Writing with Legos."

~ Consider granting a 1.8% salary increase to school employees, retroactive to July 1, 2013.

~ Consider adopting a resolution "in remembrance of man's inhumanity to man" and affirm the district's "commitment to the teaching of tolerance, understanding, and the appreciation of the diversity in our schools and community" . Comment: Well, good, but be careful, School Board, the sexism police will be after you for using "man's inhumanity" instead of "people's inhumanity."

~ Honor for outstanding service: Beth Gromer, Instructional Aide, Mayflower Elementary School; Jennifer Pratt, Teacher, Mayflower Elementary School; Margarita Hernandez, Playground Aide, Santa Fe Middle School; Eric Johnson, Teacher, Santa Fe Middle School.

~ Receive $1,200 from the Monrovia Schools Foundation to buy library books.
