Lack of new funds putting thousands of kids on preschool waiting lists [cached]

"We have long waiting lists but don't have the money to open new classrooms," said Dee Alimbini, who oversees Stockton Unified's preschool programs. "We would like to accommodate more students, but it doesn't look like it will be possible."

Stockton Unified has the largest preschool program of any school district in San Joaquin County, serving about 1,200 students in 48 classrooms. It has an annual budget of about $6.5million, Alimbini said, noting that about $3.3million is state funding based on daily student attendance. She said the other $3.2million is received through state grants, many through the First 5 of San Joaquin, the local chapter of a state organization designed to provide educational options for infants to 5-year-olds.
The San Joaquin Head Start program also enrolls about 3,000 preschool students, but it is funded largely with federal money.
With stagnant budgets, administrators such as Alimbini are trying to be creative in the services they provide.
For example, Stockton Unified is implementing a weeklong kindergarten orientation program during the summer for children who will enroll in kindergarten in the fall but have not been exposed to a classroom setting via preschool.
The orientation program will cost about $100,000 and will be paid for with grant money.
"It's one way to prepare students for kindergarten," Alimbini said.

Stockton Unified Child Welfare and Attendance Director Dee Alimbini said she supports any new laws that help the cause of keeping elementary school children enrolled and engaged in school.

"Lost learning time is very much on our minds," Alimbini said, adding that Stockton Unified is already aggressive in combating truancy.
"Besides the required notifications of truancy mailed out weekly, we schedule large group meetings with parents to explain the laws related to school attendance on a weekly basis," she added. "Since the beginning of the year, about two-thirds of the invited parents came to one of these meetings. We explain the law, we explain the academic ramifications of missing school and the future financial barriers their children will face without a high school diploma or the opportunity to move on to educational opportunities beyond high school."
Alimbini said Stockton Unified would be happy to work more closely with the county in the attendance review board process, too.
"SUSD holds (review boards) for attendance already but would work with the county office on a county-operated (board) if that was deemed the most effective way to handle this," she said.

Stockton Unified Child Welfare and Attendance administrator Dee Alimbini said her district actually suspended many more students in 2011-12 than state statistics show.

Alimbini did not know exact numbers when asked on Monday, but she said Stockton Unified statistics should have reflected much closer to 4,500 to 5,000 suspensions in 2011-12, which in turn would have shown no change or a slight decline for the year 2012-13.
"Our suspensions shouldn't have doubled. I think we should have been closer to the 11 percent (that Stockton Unified reported in 2012-13). We changed (data) systems for 2011-12, and there were many changes," Alimbini said, noting that it took a year for the district to become accustomed to the more complex data system. "It's very possible that we counted many incidents that involved two students as one incident. There's a number of things that we eventually corrected (for 2012-13)."
Alimbini said Stockton Unified had 7,267 suspensions in 2010-11, and dipping to 2,224 a year later would have been too dramatic of a shift to be accurate, she said.
Chavez High School is one site where those programs are making an impact, Alimbini said.
"We're on pace to see a decrease in suspensions at most schools this year," she said, using Hamilton Elementary as an example.
Alimbini said numbers are also going down in part because many school districts - including Stockton Unified - are moving toward more in-school suspensions instead of at-home suspensions. In-school suspensions are not included in overall suspension rates, she said.
Alimbini said Stockton Unfiied's apparent dramatic decrease in expulsions from 61 in 2011-12 to 10 in 2012-13 is an error. Stockton Unified expelled 62 last year.

Stockton Unified Child Welfare and Attendance administrator Dee Alimbini said the result of so many vaccinations is about a 0.75 percent increase in average daily attendance this year over last year - or about 2,700 fewer sick days for the 37,000-student district.

Typically, 1 percent of attendance equates to roughly $1 million in funding, Alimbini said, adding that she didn't know the exact amount of revenue the attendance bump brings to the district. [cached]

SUSD Board member Sal Ramirez and Child Welfare and Attendance Administrator Dee Alimbini were the invited guests.

Both Sal and Dee committed to work with the parents to implement the following recommendations:
