C.S.E.A. Report

Ruben Santos, CSEA President, thanked members of CSEA for being here this evening to show support. This month he wanted to spotlight Meredith Alvarez. Meredith began with the district as a food server in 2002, then was a night custodian for 10 years, and now is the day custodian at Del Rey for the past 3 years. She always greets maintenance when they come on site and lets them know the details on any workorders that they are there to repair. Her principal stated that she has the "whatever it takes" attitude and makes sure their campus is safe and clean for the students. The kids love her. Ruben closed by stating he is so proud to be part of the same team as Meredith.

Superintendent Comments

Jan Gonzales, Superintendent, thanked Ruben for spotlighting Meredith and shared with the classified members in the audience that Ruben talks to Jan about all of the classified staff, individually, all the time and the good work they do. He is there for them. Mrs. Gonzales agreed that Meredith is an outstanding day custodian and it is a privilege to walk onto the Del Rey campus. Cabinet has been to site visits and they have also attended staff meetings to express their appreciation of the staff. Mrs. Gonzales visited Greg Braggs class today at Discovery School. His students were engaged and excited while participating in a robotics competition. It was a beautiful example of teaching (21st century skills).

Board Member Comments

(1)Dr. Stine commended Ruben Santos on his report and also on his report at the last meeting showcasing the classified employees that the board does not get a chance to see day to day. Highlighting them is an awesome touch. (2) Mr. Moore stated how nice it was to see everyone tonight. He shared that he had gone to Comic Fest in San Diego over the weekend. He commended the board on the map selection at the last board meeting. (3) Mrs. Chamberlain stated that Ruben is a class act and she thanked everyone for coming tonight. She is looking forward to the board tour next week. (4) Mrs. Morgan stated that Ruben is a hard act to follow. She thanked the classified staff for coming tonight to show their support. She mentioned that she was previously on a personnel commission for 15 years. Classified seem to be treated well here by certificated due to teamwork and just seems like a family thing; and that is what we do at VESD. She also complimented Cabinet on doing a great job. (5) Dr. Elder appreciated the classified staff coming tonight. He always stresses the importance of the classified staff to his students whenever they come to his classroom. Without them, the school would not function. He also appreciates the staff in his school office. He attended an NSBA conference in Washington D.C. One of the highlights was senators from both parties speaking to public educators about education, vouchers, Betsy DeVos, and the future. The previous week the same senators spoke to private school educators. The feeling of the senators is that Betsy DeVos will not mandate vouchers. Dr. Elder thanked Deputy Mahoney for the job he does, especially after the news this weekend of the officer who was shot and killed while responding to a simple traffic accident in Whittier.
