State adopts standards test for language State Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Easfin re- leased the following statement on the State Board of Education's actions on the English-Language Arts standards and the statewide achievement test: "For the first time in Califor- nia's 147-year history, our state now has statewide language arts standards. This is a monumental achievement. It is the culrmnatio. of the work that began in 1995 when the Cahfornia Reading Task Force that I established called for clear standards and a new, more balanced set of gmdelines for the teaching of reading. "These standards are rigorous and demanding. I applaud the California State Board of Educa- tion for enhancing the excellent work of the Standards Commis- sion by making minor changes that I wholeheartedly support. "At one point, the State Board stripped out major portions of the standards put forth by the Stan- dards Commission and I am re- lieved to see that, under pressure from the Standards Commission and educators across the state, most of those standards were re- instated. "I want to thank our Challenge districts for helping to turn the attention of California toward the goal of creating content and per- forrrnce standards for each grade and subject area. The districts that have been using Challenge Stan- dards will be able to make the transition to these new Standards with ease.

If you said "yes" to the questions above, please take note that the City Council of the City of Clover- dale has formed a Steering Com- mittee to assist in the redesign of Cloverdale Blvd. and is seeking individuals to fill five vacancies. The Steering Committee is envi- sioned to be the body charged with reviewing and recommending a preferred option for redesigning the streetscape of Cloverdale Blvd. from Lake Street to Third Street. Aside from the Plaza, the recon- figuration of Cloverdale Blvd. is viewed as one of the most crucial components of the Downtown specific Reconstruction of this portion of the boulevard to accommodate a pedestrian friendly environment would serve to convert and revi- talize the economy of the down- town business district. The type of design elements that would be reviewed by the Steer- ing Committee would be the loca- tion of pedestrian sidewalks, spe- cial paving treatments, improve- ment of above and below ground utilities, siting of street furnish- ings such as benches, lighting, street trees and trash receptacles, reconfiguration of parking stalls and designation of bike lanes. The Committee will be guided by City staff and assisted by a consultant in arriving at its recom- mendation to the City Council. The committee has seven mem- bers; three downtown merchants and/or property owners; two members from the public-at-large, one member from the Planning Commission and one member from the City Council The Committee would proba- bly have 1-3 meetings a month over the course of a year. The City Council is requesting that an downtown merchant or property owner, or interested per- son who resides within the market area of Cloverdale, to apply to be a member of this important Com- mittee. Applications for membership can be picked up at the City Plan- ning Department, 126 N. Clover- dale Blvd. Deadline for receiving applications is Thursday, Dec. 11. The City Council will conduct interviews with all interested ap- plicants and appoint individuals to fill the five vacancies on the Committee.
