VIII.A. Athletic Trainers Interim Report

Speaker:
Greg Lee, Director of Human Resources and Equity Services
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Members of the Governing Board will receive an update on the services and outcomes provided by the District’s athletic trainers.
Rationale:
In February 2016, the Hart District and Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital partnered to provide full time athletic trainers to all six of the District’s comprehensive high schools.  Only about 20 percent of California public schools have an athletic trainer on board, and in many cases, the trainer is not on site daily, or only services select sports, such as football and soccer.  Hart District athletic trainers respond to student athletes’ needs across all sports, and across all competition levels, from Freshman to Varsity.

Athletic trainers play a critical role in monitoring the required protocols for returning student athletics to competition and to the classroom, under guidelines established by the State of California and the California Interscholastic Federation.  Coaches, parents and student athletes have been very appreciative of the increased standard of safety and support that Hart District student athletes are receiving through the efforts of the athletic trainers.

The report will include the latest data on injury occurrence and response by the trainers, and a recent newspaper article discussing the importance of having formally prepared athletic trainers.

The Hart District Athletic Trainers are:
Canyon – position recently vacated – screening underway
Golden Valley – Chris Rizo
Hart – Joshua Masmela
Saugus – Molly Herrera
Valencia – Hubert Paz
West Ranch – Kylie Trammell
The trainers are supervised by Thomas Diprima, Athletic Trainers Outreach Coordinator, Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital.

IX. Action Items
IX.A. Fee Amendment No. 4 – Architectural Services for Placerita Junior High School Classroom Addition Project (WLC Architects, Inc.)

Speaker:
Michael Otavka, Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Request approval of fee amendment No. 4 for WLC Architects, Inc., for the Placerita Junior High School Classroom Addition Project.
Rationale:
Since occupying the new classrooms at Placerita Junior High School, teachers have noticed excessive reverberant sound making it difficult to teach.  This may be due to many the “hard” surfaces in the classroom including the walls, floor and ceiling surfaces. In order to arrive at an appropriate solution to reduce this reverberation, an acoustical consultant, working under the direction of the architect, will need to take measurements to determine the reverberation time in the classrooms. The acoustical consultant and architect will use that data to determine the extent of sound absorbing material required to dampen the classroom acoustics and reduce the reverberation. The architect will then provide plan layouts suitable for bidding to contractors.
Financial Impact:
$7,965 plus $1,000 reimbursables from Measure SA (Fund 21).
Recommended Motion:
Approve fee amendment No. 4 for WLC Architects, Inc., for the Placerita Junior High School Classroom Addition Project.
Attachments:
