VALLEJO, Calif. - Here are a few highlights from the June 14 board meeting and the complete agenda packet

In Memoriam

Vallejo High School math teacher Aaron Ward recently passed away. Everyone at VHS called him Bishop, as he was an ordained minister. He joined the Redhawks in 2017 after teaching since 1970. Mr. Ward was the ultimate professional, wearing a tie every single day. His pleasant personality and demeanor made it easy to love and respect him. The Board of Education meeting was held in his honor.  

The next regular board meeting will be held on June 28 at 5 p.m. We will host a special board meeting on June 21 for a hearing on the LCAP and proposed budget. Visit for details. You can also view videos of previous board meetings on YouTube by searching VCUSD Communications.
