School report card on Columbia docket

The Columbia Union School District Board of Trustees will review annual school report cards Tuesday at its first board meeting of 2013. 

California law requires schools to issue School Accountability Report Cards every year and make them available to the public. They include information on enrollment, class size, staffing, test scores, expulsions and more.


Also on Tuesday, the Board of Trustees will review a financial audit report for Columbia Union School District during the 2011-12 school year. 

Tuesday’s meeting will be the first full meeting for new trustee Jenny David, who was appointed by existing trustees Dec. 18. 

Along with the other trustees, David was briefed the same day on a tentative $100,000 settlement in a tort claim against the district filed on behalf of a former student. 

The claim arose from a sex crime perpetrated on campus by Superintendent John Pendley’s son Brennan, who pleaded guilty in 2011 to unlawful sex with the former student. 

While trustees discussed the settlement for about three hours at part of the Dec. 18 meeting closed to the public, they will not vote on the agreement, according to Alesa Schachter, Columbia Elementary’s lawyer for the claim.

Final approval of the claim rests with a judge and Columbia Elementary’s insurer, she said. 

PUBLIC MEETING: Columbia Union School District Board of Trustees, 6 p.m. Tuesday, school library, 22540 Parrotts Ferry Road, Columbia.
