ATASCADERO — The Atascadero School Board of Trustees will be meeting on Tuesday night and going over a robust agenda that includes three public hearings, information on the State Budget proposal, and an athletics update due to the stay-at-home order being lifted in California.

The meeting will begin at 7 PM and can be accessed on through the Districts account.

The first item on the agenda for Tuesday night is the new Black Box Theater’s naming, which was recently finished along with several other construction projects on the AHS campus. The citizens’ advisory committee is in unanimous agreement to name the theater after Mr. Stu Stoddard, who served the District for 29 years before retiring in 2018. The theater’s proposed name is “Stu’s Studio: The Stoddard Center for the Arts.”

Next, the Board of Trustees will get an update on high school athletics and a review of safety protocols, as well as a few revisions to the AUSD Plans for Reopening Schools in Response to COVID. The revisions will be in response to updated guidelines from County Health regarding sports and competition.


Assistant Superintendent Jackie Martin will be joining the zoom following the athletics update for information on the Governor’s January 2021 State Budget Proposal and how it will affect AUSD. Martin will also provide some information on State Matching Facility Funding.

To close the meeting, both AUSD and the Atascadero District Teachers’ Association will present their initial bargaining proposal for 2020-2021.
