Forty-three teachers representing most of Palo Alto's public school campuses will gather today for a yearly event known as the "tenure celebration."
Tenure law is governed by the state education code, but evaluation of probationary teachers is up to local school districts.
Following the 5 p.m. tenure celebration, the school board will get to work with a packed agenda that includes items on high school guidance counseling, elementary school math, oversight of the parcel tax and the change to the district's academic calendar beginning in 2012-13.
The board is also expected to approve reductions of 3.75 staff positions in maintenance, data processing and human resources. Most of those positions are already vacant.
Following a 6 p.m. closed session to discuss legal issues, the board will convene its public meeting at 6:30 p.m. in the board room of school district headquarters, 25 Churchill Ave.
