district failed to follow that law. san francisco superior court, judge ethan schulman ruled that the san francisco school board did not follow state law when it voted last february to change lowell's admissions policy. i'm setting aside this resolution on finding it to to have been to be no and void. jim sutton was one of the attorneys who brought the lawsuit against the school district because of the court's order we are back to the status quo for the last 20 some odd years, which is based emissions of all according to court documents the school district did not follow the brown act which requires them to conduct open and public meetings regarding the school board's actions and provide the proper information when it came to discussions regarding lowell's academic admissions. we're tired of receiving agendas on a saturday night for a monday meeting. we're tired of not receiving
proper notice still the judge did not order the district to state the merit-based admissions policy instead the judge left the door open for the board to now follow the brown act now properly noticed. properly agendaized public meeting that might end up having them take the very same action again. here the district said the school board will meet to review the court's. decision the decision at that time the reason the board. to change the process to a lottery based system was to increase diversity citing pervasive systemic racism in recent years african-american students made up nearly 2% of the student body. asian students have been in the majority. siobhan hines foster is the former president of lowell's black student union. a lot of students told me that it's noticeable the diversity
and the higher numbers of black and latinx students on campus. virginia marshall is the chair of the naacp education committee lowell high school is not a private. school, it is a public high school for all students who reside in san francisco city and county. so you heard the school board will review the court's decision within the next 30 days. now the question is how quickly can they get this matter properly result. now remember there are three board members who are facing a recall election in february. december january february not too much time. so it's anyone's guess what the final outcome will be with regard to lowell's admissions policy in the newsroom leanne melendez abc 7 news. alright, leanne. thank you so much. well, it was a late night decision from the hayward school board. voting to close two elementary schools. and tonight. we are hearing from district officials and parents about the decision plus cvs announces

the district says they've lost2e 2004-2005 academic year. these are long issues that are not going away that will continue to impact us the impact has meant to budget short. love more than 14 million dollars money that the school district simply doesn't have in the state of california the formula that we have here is the money depends our enrolled and so with declining enrollment are funds and our income also declines. the decision has left mids feelings among both parents and students larry stoddard whose son attend strowbridge elementary tells me well, he understands the district's decision. he worries about the impact. it will have on his child you get used to different different faculty members different staff members. to be tough. wednesday's decision is a part of a multi-phased multi-year approach that will also examine if other schools have to close moving forward a choice that sarah prada says the board will try to avoid whenever possible
and one that will be taken with community input being able to slow down the process so we could have deeper conversation with all stakeholders to make sure that we are truly hearing from the community in hayward tim johns abc 7 news. cvs health plans to 900 stores over the next three years the move comes as retail giant adjusts to changing customer needs and reduces store count density in some places the chain also plans to remodel some stores to include more health services such as primary care and new versions of its health hub layout the pending closures represent nearly a tenth of the chains roughly 10,000 retail locations. the booster shot is in high demand around the bay area, california officially began taking vaccine appointments today from anyone. teen and older on its my turn website, but some people tell us that they can't get on or couldn't get an appointment until next month. the state did not wait for fda approval to start administering
