On Tuesday, the Lodi Unified School District board also:
Heard a glowing report about two programs to improve student reading skills in fourth through sixth grades. Some students showed as much as four years of reading growth in less than a year.
Approved an agreement with the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District that allows Lodi Unified to purchase five sedans that use alternative energy.
The vehicles will run on natural gas because the school district is equipped to provide it, Chief Business Officer Tim Hern said.
They will replace vehicles that have been "falling apart," Hern said. Operation costs will be one-third of the price to run vehicles fueled by gasoline, he added.

Campuses within Lodi Unified School District are filled with computers and technology, but they are underused, teachers and district trustees said on Tuesday.
With that in mind, district trustees approved a recommendation by board member George Neely to form a committee to discuss how to better use that technology to serve students.
