Also Tuesday, the board approved a $694 million budget for 2014-15 that taps $8.1 million of the district’s general fund balance. Use of the reserves still meets the district’s goal of having a carry-over of more than 5 percent of the general fund for the 2015-16 school year.

The board also voted 6-1, with Brodrick in opposition, to renew its contract with a consulting firm that hosts “courageous conversations” urging staff members to examine any racial bias they may bring to their work. The contract with Pacific Educational Group totaled $246,500, or $133,500 less than the agreement approved for 2013-14.
