Lodi Unified School District trustees extended Chief Business Official Tim Hern’s contract for two years through June 30, 2015. Hern will be paid $155,394 annually under the new contract.
Hern said it’s very difficult to determine how the state education budget will affect Lodi Unified because of major differences between Gov. Jerry Brown and the State Senate. “The only thing that’s consistent (with the state budget) is its inconsistency,” Hern said.
The board postponed a discussion of the board’s strategic plan of shortand long-term goals for the district because it had to deliberate matters in closed session.

It's not clear how Lodi Unified School District trustees will eventually vote on how to incorporate classroom driver education and a six-class unit on HIV and AIDS for students whose schedule includes honors classes.
Trustees discussed recommendations by district administrators, but no formal action was taken at Tuesday's school board meeting. Trustees may make a decision at the May 21 board meeting, said Dawn Vetica, the district's assistant superintendent for secondary schools.
