    Orange Unified Schools DIGEST

    a news service of Orange Net News /O/N/N/

    Orange Police Department and OUSD Join in Parent Information Night
    The law enforcement agencies serving the Orange Unified School District have joined together with OUSD to hold four community information nights. The first was held November 8th at Villa Park High School in conjunction with the Orange Sheriffs Department and the second was held November 9th with at Canyon High School with the Anaheim Police Department. The last two will be in Orange in conjunction with the Orange Police Department on Monday November 13th at El Modena H.S. and Wednesday November 15th at Yorba Middle School. The program runs from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and will cover school safety and information on youth drug and substance abuse.

    State to Fund Supplementary Secondary School Counseling Program
    At the November 16th OUSD Board Meeting information mill be presented on new state money earmarked for funding supplemental counseling positions at the states secondary schools. Action Item 12 B (page 18) establishes a plan for the supplemental positions in Orange Unified.

    December OUSD Meeting
    conflicted with State School Board Association


    Moving the scheduled OUSD Board Organizational Board meeting from December 6th to December 14th apparently had little to do with providing more “balanced time frame” (as Item 12 C of the October 12th OUSD Board Agenda stated) and more about the timing of the California School Board Association (CSBA) meeting at the San Francisco Moscone Center the first weekend in December. Perhaps not mentioning the annual meeting may have to do with the expenses the Board members rack up each year.
