City Council Joint Meeting
Pleasant Hill City Council held a joint meeting on October 2 with the Mt. Diablo School District. Discussion items included an update on the Pleasant Hill Education Commission, Pleasant Hill Library Project, and College Park Career Pathways. Superintendent Dr. Nellie Meyer also presented some academic information to the council. According to Superintendent Meyer, “We have now exceeded the new and more challenging state standards three years in a row and continue to have the growth, but we are really seeing the progress in literacy and reading and still need to see that same progress in mathematics. That is something we are looking at as a district focus.” Dr. Meyer also mentioned that College Park High School has been awarded the Silver Award again this year from U.S. News and World Report. This award comes when a school has increased the number of Advanced Placement (AP) course offerings and has an increase in the number of students who have passed that AP test with a 3 (out of 5) or above. Dr. Meyer also reported that College Park High School’s attendance is now at 2044 students.
