IV. Recognitions by Board
IV.A. Recognition of District Teachers of the Year

Speaker:
Michael Vierra, Assistant Superintendent, Human Resources
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Each school has selected a Teacher of the Year for the 2017/18 school year, and these worthy teachers are being recognized this evening.
Rationale:
The California Teacher of the Year program, which began in 1972, has brought recognition to exemplary teachers, paying tribute to their resolute efforts.  With the District’s many outstanding teachers, staff takes pride in identifying and honoring its own heroes of Hart District classrooms.  Selection criteria include personal growth, commitment, personal attributes, and professional skills.

Being honored tonight as Teachers of the Year by their individual schools are:  Michele Siner, Academy of the Canyons; Jessica Meraz, Arroyo Seco Junior High School; Ravinder Athwal, Bowman High School; Mary Purdy, Canyon High School; Jamie Foderaro, Golden Valley High School; Martin Kirby, Hart High School; Denise Baker, Learning Post; Jessica Dabbeekeh, La Mesa Junior High School; Monica Ludlow, Placerita Junior High School; Carine Clewis, Rancho Pico Junior High School; Matthew Sheridan, Rio Norte Junior High School; Monica Lunde, Saugus High School; Teri Rodriguez, Sequoia School; Stephanie Caneday, Sierra Vista Junior High School; Brenda Monteleone, Valencia High School; Linda Cox, West Ranch High School; and Marci Gabriel, Golden Oak Adult School.

For the 2017/18 school year, the District recognizes Mary Purdy as the Hart District Teacher of the Year.  Mary has recently concluded her teaching career after 39 years, 35 of those with the Hart District and the past 26 of those at Canyon High School.  She was an outstanding music educator whose passion for the arts inspired her students and her colleagues.  Mary has done amazing things at Canyon High School with her various choral groups and has put the School and District on the map nationally.  The Canyon High School Choirs have traveled to New York, San Diego and Canada, among other locales, and often receive high accolades by the adjudicators.  Most recently, a trip to perform in Carnegie Hall in the spring of 2016 was a highlight to Mary’s career.  But Mary did much more on campus that made her stand out as the Hart District’s Teacher of the Year.  Mary created the Tri-M Music Honor Society, was the advisor for various clubs, including the Bible Club, and you could often find her with a smile on her face around campus.  Mary will be missed by Canyon High School and the Hart District, but her efforts will not go unnoticed as she has set up students for success whether by going on to college or beginning their careers.

Honorees and their school principals have been invited to the Board meeting.

IX. Action Items
IX.A. Public Hearing for Resolution No. 17/18-11 – Pupil Textbook and Instructional Materials Incentive Act

Speaker:
David N. LeBarron, Director of Curriculum and Assessment
Quick Summary / Abstract:
A public hearing will be held regarding the Pupil Textbook and Instructional
Materials Incentive Act.
Rationale:
School districts are subject to the requirements of Education Code Section 60119 in order to receive funding for the Pupil Textbook and Instructional Materials Incentive program and/or funding for instructional materials from any state source.  One of the requirements is that a public hearing be held once a year, before the end of the eighth week of school, to determine whether each pupil in the school district will have sufficient textbooks or instructional materials.  The intent of the public hearing is to encourage participation on this issue by parents, teachers, and members of the community.

SB 550 defines “sufficient instructional materials or textbooks” as each student, including English Language Learners, having a textbook or instructional materials to use in class and to take home to complete required homework assignments.  SB 550 specifies that this language does not require two sets of textbooks for each pupil.

SB 550 also requires the Governing Board to determine that each student enrolled in a foreign language or health course has sufficient standards-aligned textbooks and that laboratory equipment is available to students in grades 9-12.

Recommended Motion:
Direct the Superintendent to assure the State Superintendent of Public Instruction that the Governing Board has complied with provisions of Education Code Section 60119 through Resolution No. 17/18-11 – Pupil Textbook and Instructional Materials Incentive Act.

IX.B. Resolution No. 17/18-7 – Certification of 2016/17 Unaudited Actuals Financial Report

Speaker:
Ralph Peschek, Chief Financial Officer
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Resolution No. 17/18-7 certifies the 2016/17 Unaudited Actuals Financial Report, as required by California Education Code Section 42100, and appropriates differences between estimated year-end balances and unaudited year-end balances to the ending fund balance for each fund.
Rationale:
Annually, the District prepares a closing report of the budget for the prior fiscal year. This document reflects actual revenues and expenditures for the entire twelve months of operation, including accruals. The report is mandated and must first be accepted by the Board and then submitted to the Los Angeles County Office of Education.

At the time that the District develops its annual budget, the ending balance for the prior fiscal year is estimated based upon prior year patterns of spending, current legislation and established time lines. This estimate is truly just that: an estimate. By year-end, when actual goods and services are received, and revenues earned, these figures can change. However, the importance of this report is two-fold. First, it establishes the actual ending balance of the prior fiscal year, which then becomes the beginning balance of the current fiscal year. Second, it finalizes the actual revenues and expenditures of the prior fiscal year. These figures will change only if there is an audit adjustment as a result of the annual financial audit.

Financial Impact:
None
Recommended Motion:
Adopt Resolution No. 17/18-7 certifying the unaudited actuals report for the 2016/2017 school year, as presented.

IX.C. Resolution No. 17/18-8 – Gann Limit Adoption

Speaker:
Ralph Peschek, Chief Financial Officer
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Resolution No. 17/18-8 adopts the District’s Gann Limit establishing an appropriations limit in accordance with Article XIII-B of the California Constitution.
Rationale:
In 1979, voters enacted Proposition 4 limiting growth in government spending to no more than the growth in population and inflation.  This spending limit, commonly referred to as the “Gann Limit” after the initiative’s author, Paul Gann, applies not only to the State of California, but also to cities, counties, special districts, school districts, and county offices of education.  The revenues subject to the Gann Limit are limited to state and local tax sources.  Federal aid and non-tax income (e.g. cafeteria sales and adult education fees) are excluded from the calculation.

To calculate the Gann limit, the base year (1978/79) appropriation limit has been increased annually for both inflation, as measured by the annual percentage change in California per capita personal income, and population, as measured by the annual change in average daily attendance (ADA).  All calculations (see attached) have been prepared in accordance with applicable constitutional and statutory law as provided for by the California Department of Education SACS Form GANN.  The District’s Gann Limit for 2016/17 ($118,285,725.75) and the estimated limit for 2017/18 ($122,552,348.65) do not exceed the limitations imposed by Proposition 4.

Therefore, staff requests the Governing Board adopt Resolution No. 17/18-8 declaring that the District’s budget appropriations in the 2016/17 and 2017/18 fiscal years do not exceed the limitations imposed by Proposition 4.

Recommended Motion:
Adopt Resolution No. 17/18-8 declaring that the District’s budget appropriations for the 2016/17 and 2017/18 fiscal years do not exceed the limitations imposed by Proposition 4.

IX.E. Resolution No. 17/18-10 – Dedicating an Easement to Newhall County Water District at Hart High School for Roadway and Utilities Purposes

Speaker:
Michael Otavka, Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:

Request approval of Resolution No. 17/18-10 dedicating an easement to Newhall County Water District at Hart High School for roadway and utilities purposes.

Rationale:
