Alhambra Unified board to recognize 'life-saving response' of Alhambra High nurse, vote on teacher credential program for district staff

The Alhambra Unified school board will recognize the Alhambra Fire Department, emergency medical services and Alhambra High nurse Anita Man for their "life-saving response" at Alhambra High at an unspecified date.  

The board will vote Tuesday night to accept a grant that gives district staff the opportunity to get credentialed as teachers, which is a program designed to address the teacher shortage.

"Alhambra Unified School District is one of 25 school districts or county offices of education that received 40 of the 1,000 slots that have been awarded," the agenda wrote. The district would be awarded $160,000 per year over a five-year span, totaling $800,000. 

The board will also vote to approve change orders for construction projects that have been contracted with Nazerian Group at four different school sites: updated locker rooms at San Gabriel High, new classrooms for Repetto Elementary and Monterey Highlands, and a dance studio with other upgrades at Mark Keppel High.
