Lodi Unified School District is expected to receive an estimated $5.6 million million in new state funding to support the shift to the Common Core academic standards, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced Tuesday.

School districts can decide for themselves how to use their share of the funds to train teachers, buy new materials and purchase technology to help schools adapt to the new Common Core State Standards, which are designed to provide all students with the deeper learning, critical thinking and other skills they need to prepare for college and a career.

Lodi Unified’s charter schools will receive an additional $315,000 combined, according to the state Department of Education website.

The funding is based on enrollment and amounts to about $200 per student.

In Galt, the elementary school district anticipates about $758,000, while the high school district is expected to receive $461,000.

Elsewhere, New Hope Elementary School District is slated for $43,000 and Oak View Elementary School District, $80,400.

These figures represents the first half of $1.25 billion allocated for this purpose, which was included in the state budget by Governor Brown and the Legislature at Torlakson’s urging. The second half of the funding will be released in October.

Back in 2010, California adopted the new standards, which outline what students will be expected to know and be able to do at each grade level.

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?
