Year-round schools aren't the only topic the school board will deal with today.
The board will hear school administrators tout how they've exceeded the district's goal of having minority businesses account for at least 10 percent of the district's construction contracting program. Board policy calls for staff "to actively seek and identify qualified minority business enterprises" for construction contracts.
The board will also hear a request to dip into the rainy day fund to provide money for traditional-calendar schools to hire enough teachers.
Last month, the board took $677,804 out of fund balance to pay for teachers at year-round schools and $300,000 to restore signing bonuses for new teacher hires.
Administrators say they would normally in the past have gotten the money by going through other programs to find savings. But they say that option isn't available this year due to the cuts made to balance this year's budget.
