IX.E. Castaic High School Building Commissioning (American Commissioning Group, LLC)

Speaker:
Michael Otavka – Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Proposal for commissioning services from American Commissioning Group, LLC, for the Castaic High School Project.
Rationale:

The term commissioning comes from shipbuilding. A commissioned ship is one that is ready for service. Before being commissioned, a ship must be tested and inspected and pass several milestones. The major equipment must be installed correctly and tested, any problems identified and corrected, and the crew trained in the proper use of the equipment.

Building commissioning is the same concept applied to buildings. Due to the complexity of today’s building systems and the integration needed across disciplines, building commissioning has become necessary for nearly all except the simplest of building systems. Commissioning is done by an objective third party, not the company that installed the system. The commissioning agent is an expert in the field and ensures that the new building operates initially as the owner intended.

Staff recommends approval of the attached proposal from American Commissioning Group, LLC, to provide building commissioning services for the Castaic High School Project.

Financial Impact:
$129,950 from Measure SA (Fund 21).  This fee is included in the overall project budget.
Recommended Motion:
Approve proposal for commissioning services from American Commissioning Group, LLC, for the Castaic High School Project.
Attachments:
Building Comissioning Proposal
IX.F. Architectural Services Proposal for Modular Restroom Building Addition Golden Oak Adult School at Centre Pointe Parkway (Taller Dos Flores)

Speaker:
Michael Otavka – Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Request approval of attached proposal from Taller Dos Flores for bid document preparation and Division of the State Architect (DSA) approval to remove Portable C and install a new DSA previously checked (PC) approved portable restroom building to serve Golden Oak Adult School at Centre Pointe Parkway.
Rationale:

Golden Oak Adult School (Golden Oak) operates from a portable classroom building at Placerita Junior High School and two portable classroom buildings on Center Pointe Parkway.  The Centre Pointe Parkway classrooms are served by a mens and womens porta-potty that is currently being rented from Andy Gump. Golden Oak would like to replace the porta-potties with a more permanent restroom building.

DSA PC approved portable restroom buildings are available to the District to lease or purchase. These buildings come in various restroom configurations and are connected to the sanitary sewer and domestic water. Much like portable classrooms, these portable restroom buildings appear to be permanent, but can be moved to and set up at other sites if necessary. The attached proposal from Taller Dos Flores will provide bid documents that will enable the District to bid the construction work necessary to demolish existing Portable C and place a new portable restroom in that location.

Financial Impact:
$35,585 plus reimbursable expenses from Adult Education (Fund 11).
Recommended Motion:
Approve attached proposal from Taller Dos Flores for modular restroom building addition to serve Golden Oak Adult School at Centre Pointe Parkway.
Attachments:

X.C.1. Final Adoption of Textbook/Instructional Materials, 2017/18

Speaker:
David N. LeBarron, Director of Curriculum and Assessment
Quick Summary / Abstract:
A textbook has been recommended for final adoption for the 2017/18 school year.
Rationale:
myPerspectives – Publisher: Pearson – Author: Hiebert/ Gallagher/ Morrell/Cummins – Course Area: English – Grade: 9-12 – After reviewing three different publishers’ materials, the High School English Language Arts Materials Selection Committee recommends Pearson’s myPerspectives to be adopted for the upcoming school year.  Among other options, this publisher stood out to our committee because of its up-to-date and interactive digital component, which is user friendly and customizable, the engaging and rigorous text selections, embedded grammar and writing, differentiation, and assessments that simulate the CAASPP.  In particular, both teachers and students alike were extremely satisfied with the consumable textbooks; students enjoyed annotating directly on the books.  myPerspectives is created so that each unit moves students from whole group, small group, and independent activities in order to keep the students engaged and to reinforce learning.  Each unit is driven by an essential question that thematically connects all the texts within it, and each includes multi-genre texts, both fiction and non-fiction.  Teachers appreciated the variety of genres and complex, rich texts.  myPerspectives also includes integrated ELD instruction, as mandated by the ELA/ELD Framework, customized to support English learners to have access to the core content.  Overall, teachers felt that myPerspectives equipped them with the appropriate tools to teach and meet the learning needs of all students.
Financial Impact:
Funding from State Instructional Materials Funds.
Recommended Motion:
Approve textbook, as referenced above, for use beginning in the 2017/18 year.

X.D. Consent Calendar-Business Services
X.D.1. Purchasing Through California Approved Piggyback Contracts

Speaker:
Leigh Hansen, Director of Purchasing and Warehouse
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Board Policy 3311(a) provides that the District may piggyback with the contract of another public agency or corporation when the Board has determined it in the District’s best interest. The term “piggyback” is associated with Public Contract Code Section 20118, which allows public entities to acquire property by participating in an existing contract of another public entity.
Rationale:
Piggybacking with another public entity contract allows the District to take advantage of lower costs realized through economies-of-scale and also avoids the time and expense of a public bid process.  Each piggyback contract is valuated for participation and usage.  When the District’s need is greater than the piggyback contract participation or usage, the District will author and publish its own bid to obtain best cost. Administrative Regulation 3311(a) further defines that when bids are not required, District staff shall make a good faith effort to secure quotes.

Staff requests the use of the following California-approved piggyback contract during the 2016/17 fiscal year:

National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) Master Price Agreement Number SW818, Addendum Number 7-14-99-20.01.

Recommended Motion:
Approve procurement of various items via specified California-approved piggyback contracts for the 2016/17 fiscal year pursuant to Public Contract Code Section 20118 and Board Policy 3311(a).
