Just added the Saratoga Union School District trustee meeting agenda for tonight. Apologies about leaving it out originally. So just like Los Gatos, the elementary school district in Saratoga is also meeting tonight along with the high school district. If you attend and want to help me keep our readers informed about school news, consider blogging or writing a letter to the editor, or just pitch me a topic you think should be covered. Thank you so much!
