The Galt Joint Union High School District is one of 117 California school districts to land on the state's qualified certification list. It is not the district's first time on the list.

A qualified certification is assigned when a district may not meet its financial obligations for the current or next two fiscal years. This certification allows the Sacramento County Office of Education to assist the district if needed.

Still, state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson was happy with the information released statewide Monday, as 500,000 fewer California students attend school districts in financial jeopardy now than last May, according to a press release.

The reports are released twice a year based on information the California Department of Education receives on the financial status of the state's school districts. Certifications are classified as either positive, qualified or negative.

A positive certification is assigned when a district will meet its financial obligations for the current and two subsequent fiscal years. Lodi Unified School District, and all districts in San Joaquin County, appears on this list.

A negative certification — the most serious of the classifications — is assigned when a district will be unable to meet its financial obligations for the remainder of the current year or for the subsequent fiscal year. This certification means a district's county office of education may intervene in the district's finances.

Because these Interim Status Reports are snapshots in time, the state cautions a district's financial status may have changed since these certifications were collected.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
