The following is from the Feb. 13 meeting of the Laguna Beach Unified School District Board of Education.
WAHOO’S WINS STUDENT APPRECIATION AWARD
The Laguna Beach High School student body selected the newly reopened Wahoo’s Fish Tacos, 1133 So. Coast Hwy., as the recipient of its Dignity Appreciation and Respect for Treating Students (DARTS) award.
COACHES’ PRESEASON SALARIES DISCUSSED
Board Clerk El Hathaway pulled an item from the consent calendar regarding preseason salaries for coaches hired by the Athletic Boosters.
He said that he had been of the impression that the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) doesn’t allow districts to pay for preseason salaries, but that he may have been misled. He added that if it’s true that the district would be able to pay for preseason coaching, it should be added to the district’s budget.
Board member Jan Vickers then suggested that people who are hired by the Performing Arts Boosters also be paid for by the district.
