Board members will likely thank the teachers and recognize DeMore in her nomination for Los Angeles County Teacher of the Year.

The board will be presented with an itemization of purchase orders totaling more than $561,500 to be approved for various supplies, equipment and maintenance at several schools and offices in the district.

A majority of the purchase order amount, more than $317,000, was made for a waterproofing project at Joaquin Miller Elementary School last summer.

More than $13,500 in the report is designated to the purchase of stage drapes at John Muir Middle School and a little more than $10,000 for books and texts for an advanced-placement computer science class at Burbank High School.

?

The board will likely approve these purchase orders, as they consist of items critical to the district’s maintenance in school and administrative offices.

?

The board will be presented with a report on instructional services for Luther Middle School and Thomas Edison Elementary School.

The services include $76,200 in math and English language arts classes for students in grades six through eight at Luther Middle School.

The classes will last from Nov. 1 to Feb. 29 and will be for students who are struggling to become proficient in math and English language arts.

?

The district will like approve this instructional service as a way to combat slumping standardized test scores in these areas at Luther Middle School.
