More than 70 representatives from local, regional and state organizations, including youth organizations and county officials, will attend Galt’s first-ever education summit today.

Other confirmed attendees include business and workforce development representatives, education agencies, a Sacramento County Supervisor, research and foundation organizations and local youth-serving groups, according to Galt Joint Union Elementary School District Superintendent Karen Schauer.

Along with the Galt Joint Union High School District and the City of Galt, the elementary district is hosting the event. The agencies helped create the city’s Youth Master Plan in 2010.

The summit, to be held at 5 p.m. at Brewster’s, aims to build on those efforts to provide a coordinated vision for opportunities for youth in Galt.

The Youth Master Plan was the basis for a federal Race to the Top competitive grant proposal last year.

This proposal, written by the Galt elementary district with the help of the high school district and city representatives, is known as the “Bright Future for Galt Students,” and will provide resources for successful and innovative learning practices to personalize learning so that every student will graduate ready for college, a career and life.

The proposal was one of only 16 chosen for funding by the United States Department of Education. It provides $10,000,000 over a four-year period.

This school year is the first year of implementation, and the district is seeking ideas and support from potential stakeholders.

“With united efforts to move forward, we can provide a bright future for every Galt student,” Schauer wrote in the invitation letter to area representatives.

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?
