- Lodi Unified School District board continues review of long-term plans
Although there was little discussion Tuesday, Lodi Unified School District trustees reviewed short-term and long-term plans each trustee would like to see for the district.
For the 2013-14 school year, the board wants detailed instruction for kindergarten through third-grade students, especially in reading and math.
Other priorities include having high school students graduate with a positive vision for their future and a plan to achieve that vision, integrating technology for students and teachers, and improving campus safety.
The next step is to determine how much it will cost to carry out each goal, and prioritize which goals are the most affordable.

With Lodi Unified School District employees enjoying the news that the district stands to gain an estimated $28 million in Proposition 30 funds, union representatives asked the board of trustees on Tuesday to restore some of the wages employees gave up during the recession.
Teacher salaries decreased by 6.125 percent when the economy tumbled several years ago, prompting Lodi Education Association President Jeff Johnston to ask district officials to return to the bargaining table and begin negotiations with employees.
