San Mateo County Board of Supervisors’ Agenda: Update

The Granicus management system used for Board of Supervisors’ meetings and agendas will provide live streaming of the meetings and annotate the video by item for easier viewing.

Now you can sign up in advance to speak at Board of Supervisors meetings using the online feature, Register to Speak, available on the Board agenda website.

Register to Speak is available from the time the meeting agenda is posted online until 8:30 a.m. the day of the Board meeting. Speakers who have registered to speak will need to be present at the meeting in order to be called by the Board president. While speakers will be listed in the order in which they sign up, whether online or in person, the Board president may change the order of the speakers at his or her discretion.

G Suite Enterprise for Education is now available

Since launching G Suite for Education, we’ve heard a common request from colleges, universities and large school districts: the need for more advanced tools to meet their complex technology needs. In January, we announced G Suite Enterprise for Education, a new edition of G Suite for Education that offers additional enterprise-grade capabilities designed for large institutions and customized for education. Starting today, G Suite Enterprise for Education is generally available to educational institutions in the United States, and is coming to more countries soon.

Additionally, new tools—such as Data Loss Prevention (DLP), security key management and enforcement, and Gmail S/MIME—will start rolling out to all G Suite for Education users over the next few months. G Suite for Education, a suite of tools used by 80M teachers and students, has been and will remain free for schools and we’ll continue to add new features to that edition at no additional cost.

Kelly Foundation awards $100,000 grant to Sacramento Cottage Housing

SACRAMENTO, CA — March 13, 2016 —The Kelly Foundation awarded its 2017 Major Gift of $100,000 to Sacramento Cottage Housing, Inc., a not-for-profit agency that provides long-term housing and a supportive living environment for formerly homeless individuals and families. The award constituted the Kelly Foundation’s largest single donation of the year and has been used to reinstitute the popular Skylab program that provides children at the agency’s Serna Village community with homework assistance, mentorship and special activities. The community recently launched Girl Scout Troop #5836 with an inaugural group of 26 girls, three adults and one staff member. The remainder of the funds will be used to empower Sacramento Cottage Housing to become more independent and self-sustaining with regard to establishing inroads for point-of-sale fundraising opportunities.

“Sacramento Cottage Housing has a strong track record of transforming lives through its innovative practices, and we are excited to partner with the agency as it reinforces and strengthens its operational capacity for the future,” said Shawn Kelly Devlin, President of the Kelly Foundation and Chairman of the Board of River City Bank. “We are confident that this donation will position Sacramento Cottage Housing to enhance its efforts to help at-risk families and individuals in the Sacramento region get back on their feet.” Continue reading Kelly Foundation awards $100,000 grant to Sacramento Cottage Housing
