IV.B. Discussion regarding the Chiquita Canyon Landfill Expansion
IV.C. Approve Resolution 2016-17 # 40, a resolution of the Governing Board of the Saugus Union School District in Support of SB 751 – Fix the Reserve Cap

Rationale:
The current cap limits the amount of money districts can hold in reserve funds, leaving districts vulnerable to another economic downturn and unable to make basic classroom purchases.  SB 751 fixes the cap and will preserve the fiscal solvency of districts.  SB 751 will raise the level of the statutory reserve limit from 6 percent to 17 percent (a nationally-recognized standard for government agency reserves); clarify that the reserve cap law would apply only to unassigned ending balances in the school district’s general fund and special reserve fund for other than capital outlay projects and; exempt all small district (less than 2,501 ADA) and basic aid districts. Our district must have the ability to make budget decisions that best serve our students and allow planning for economic uncertainties-before a crisis hits. SB 751 returns this decision to the local jurisdiction to maintain a healthy reserve with adequate cash flow to meet district obligations.

Resolution 2016-17 # 40
IV.D. Approve Resolution 2016-17 # 39, a resolution of the Governing Board of the Saugus Union School District in Support of AB 312 – Funding for Children with Disabilities

Rationale:
Current AB 602 special education funding ranges from $486.28 to $935.72 per student base rate.  The SCV SELPA receives $527.75 per student base rate, still below the $532.68 per student State Target base rate. The only funding available for preschoolers with disabilities are two very small federal preschool grants which do not take average daily attendance into consideration. There is no dispute that special education is underfunded and inequitable with our district’s general funds paying the excess costs for special education programs amounting to millions of dollars annually.

AB 312 would resolve two major special education funding adequacy and equity issues by equalizing the special education AB 602 rates and including the average daily attendance (ADA) for preschoolers with disabilities into the AB 602 funding model. Early intervention and preschool programs for our preschool-aged children with disabilities would provide significant educational and social benefit and result in significant future cost savings to the state and our district during the students’ remaining educational career and ensure the necessary programs for all the district’s children.

Rationale:
Resolution 2016-17 # 36 is submitted on an annual basis for Board Approval.  This year’s resolution represents Twenty-six (26) positions that are being reduced in hours for lack of work, lack of funds, and one (1) reduction that will result in separation from service from the District for lack of work or lack of funds.

Each year, district administrators and principals collaboratively develop their budgets with their school community, and subsequent to School Site Council approval, submit their projected classified hours for the upcoming school year. If those projected hours are less than the hours projected for the current school year, it is considered a reduction in hours, or a lay-off if the hours equal zero.  The projections are intentionally conservative, as hours may increase or be fully restored during the course of the year, but cannot be decreased.  Laid off employees have reemployment rights prescribed by the Collective Bargaining Agreement and Education Code.

Twenty-six (26) positions that are being reduced in hours:

  • (2)       Bilingual Instructional Assistant
  • (1)       Instructional Specialist Music
  • (1)       Instructional Specialist Computer
