Burbank's school board retreat open to public

Summer bond projects, the new Common Core curriculum and technology use in the Burbank school district will be up for discussion this Saturday during the annual school board retreat.

At the public retreat at district headquarters, school board members and district administrators will also discuss the district’s potential for expanding world languages in its curriculum and hear updates on the district’s special education programs.

Members of the district’s technology committee will also be present, along with Charles Poovakan, director of information technology and educational support. He will give the board an update on the data center that school board members allocated more than $570,000 to build in September.

The data center will serve as the main hub for the district’s technological operations.

The board retreat is open to the public and will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday in the district boardroom located at 1900 W. Olive Ave.
