Speaker:
Michael Otavka, Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Award of prime contractor bids for Bid Package Nos. WSH1812A-01 through WSH1812A-05 for the Hart High School Infrastructure Phase 2B Project to the lowest responsive/responsible bidders.
Rationale:
On December 18, 2018, the District received and opened bids for the Hart High School Infrastructure Phase 2B Project (Bid No. WSH1812A). The project delivery method is construction management multiple-prime with Lundgren Management as the construction manager. This type of construction delivery method is structured with several “prime” contractors managed by a District-hired construction manager.

Lundgren Management and District staff have reviewed the low bidder’s submitted bid documents and qualifications for responsiveness and responsibility. Based upon our review, verifications, and discussions, it is our recommendation to award a contract to the low bidder for each bid package with the exception of Bid Package 01. The apparent low bid for WSH1812A-01 Golden Phoenix Construction Co., Inc., dba Golden Phoenix Electric withdrew due to clerical error. We recommend award to the second lowest bidder, Taft Electric Company.

Below is a list of the recommended multiple prime bids by bid package:

Speaker:
Michael Otavka, Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Approval of fee proposal for Division of the State Architect (DSA) inspection services for the Hart High School Infrastructure Phase 2B Project from RS Martin Construction Services.
Rationale:

It is the responsibility of the project inspector to perform tasks required of them by the DSA and the District such as performing periodic inspections of the work, advising the contractor of non-conforming work, keeping accurate records, and certifying that the completed work has been done in accordance with the plans and specifications. DSA requires the District to employ a DSA inspector for this project.

RS Martin Construction Services provided inspection services for Phase 2A of the project. Staff and the architect recommends using the same inspector for Phase 2B since Phase 2B is a continuation of Phase 2A. Ron Martin of RS Martin Construction Services is familiar with the project and is providing the District with the most cost effective rate (same rate as he charged for Phase 2A) as compared to other inspectors that were asked to provide cost proposals for the Phase 2A work in October of 2018.

Financial Impact:
$32,832 from Lease Revenue Bonds.
Recommended Motion:
Approve fee proposal for Division of the State Architect for inspection services the Hart High School Infrastructure Phase 2B Project from RS Martin Construction Services.

Speaker:
Michael Otavka, Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Approval of fee proposal for Division of the State Architect (DSA) geological, materials testing, and inspection services for the Hart High School Infrastructure Phase 2B Project from Ninyo & Moore.

Ninyo & Moore provided DSA materials testing and inspection services for the District during Phase 2A of the Infrastructure Project. Ninyo & Moore is familiar with the project and will be working on the two-story classroom building as well. For consistency in testing and record keeping with the DSA, staff and the architect recommend using the same inspector for Phase 2B since Phase 2B is a continuation of Phase 2A.

Financial Impact:
$69,878 from Lease Revenue Bonds.
Recommended Motion:
Approve fee proposal for Division of the State Architect geological, materials testing, and inspection services for the Hart High School Infrastructure Phase 2B Project from Ninyo & Moore.

IX.L. Change Order No. 1 – Hart High School Phase 2A Infrastructure Project (Bid Package No. WSH18-02A – HPS Mechanical)

Speaker:
Michael Otavka, Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Approval of Change Order No. 1 for Hart High School Phase 2A Infrastructure Project (Bid Package No. WSH18-02A – HPS Mechanical).
Rationale:

Change Order No. 1 Bid Package No. WSH18-02A (HPS Mechanical)

Contractor is requesting a change order to their contract in the amount of $43,173. This includes work that was supposed to be done in the Infrastructure Phase 2B project, but instead, moved up to the current Phase 2A project. Also, a portion of the utility work that was going to be done by the water company, Newhall County Water District (NCWD), was instead done by HPS Mechanical due to policy changes with NCWD.

Financial Impact:
$43,173 from Measure SA (Fund 21).
Recommended Motion:

IX.M. Fee Amendment No. 3 – Architectural Services – Hart High School Two-Story Modular Classroom Building, Addition of Two Tennis Courts and Related Site Work Project (Flewelling & Moody)

Speaker:
Michael Otavka, Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Approval of Fee Amendment No. 3 from Flewelling & Moody for architectural services for the Hart High School Two-Story Modular Classroom Building, Addition of Two Tennis Courts and Related Site Work Project.
Rationale:
Flewelling & Moody is requesting a third fee amendment due to extensive and prolonged revisions to the geotechnical report requested by the Division of the State Architect (DSA). These revisions by the DSA required the modular building manufacturer to re-design the building’s  foundation. The change in the foundation design resulted in the architect needing to attend and prepare for additional meetings with DSA, and added design work for the architect and civil engineer. The additional time required for this work was not anticipated in the previous fee amendment submitted by the architect.
Financial Impact:
$32,770 plus reimbursable expenses from Measure SA (Fund 21).
Recommended Motion:
Approve Fee Amendment No. 3 from Flewelling & Moody for architectural services for the Hart High School Two-Story Modular Classroom Building, Addition of Two Tennis Courts and Related Site Work Project.
Attachments:
Flewelling & Moody Fee Amendment No.3
IX.N. Purchase of Acoustic Ceiling Panels for 21 Growthpoint Classrooms at Placerita Junior High School (Sound Management Group)

Speaker:
Michael Otavka, Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Approval of the purchase of  acoustic ceiling panels for 21 Growthpoint classrooms at Placerita Junior High School (Sound Management Group).
Rationale:

Staff has been looking at solutions for resolving an acoustic issue in the recently completed Growthpint classrooms at Placerita Junior High School. As a pilot project, Room 11 was outfitted with tectum ceiling panels which resolved the acoustic issues; however, staff wanted to try other options that addressed the appearance and cost of the ceiling panels.

In December of 2018, the District purchased ceiling tiles from Sound Management Group and had them installed in Room 12. The installation in that room was evaluated and found to be effective at reducing the reverberation to an acceptable level.  Two other ceiling tile options were explored and the Sound Management Group panel was found to have the best appearance and the lowest cost of the three options explored. Sound Management Group is providing the acoustic ceiling panels and Coustic-Glo will do the installation. This installation will complete the remaining 21 Growthpoint classrooms.

Financial Impact:
$62,447.54 from Measure SA (Fund 21).
Recommended Motion:
Approve the purchase of acoustic ceiling panels for 21 Growthpoint classrooms at Placerita Junior High School (Sound Management Group).

IX.O. Award of Contract – Installation of Acoustic Ceiling Panels in 21 Growthpoint Classrooms (Coustic-Glo) at Placerita Junior High School

Speaker:
Michael Otavka, Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Award of contract for installation of acoustic ceiling panels in 21 Growthpoint classrooms (Coustic-Glo) at Placerita Junior High School.
Rationale:

On August 15, 2018, the District adopted California Uniform Public Construction Cost Accounting (CUPCCA). Starting January 1, 2019, CUPCCA allows districts to solicit quotes from contractors for projects under $60,000 without going through a formal public works bidding process. Staff used the CUPCCA process to solicit quotes from multiple contractors on this project. Staff recommends awarding this project to Coustic-Glo, the lowest responsive/responsible quote for $46,562.

Coustic-Glo installed acoustic ceiling tiles in one of the Growthpoint classrooms (Room 12) as a pilot project to see how effective the ceiling tiles were at reducing reverberation in the room. The installation in that room was evaluated and found to be effective at reducing the reverberation to an acceptable level.  Two other ceiling tile options were explored and the Sound Management Group panel was found to have the best appearance and the lowest cost of the three options explored. Sound Management Group is providing the acoustic ceiling panels and Coustic-Glo will do the installation. This installation will complete the remaining 21 Growthpoint classrooms.

Financial Impact:
$46,562 from Measure SA (Fund 21).
Recommended Motion:
Award of contract for installation of acoustic ceiling panels in 21 Growthpoint classrooms (Coustic-Glo) at Placerita Junior High School.

IX.Q. Fee Amendment No. 1 – Sierra Vista Junior High School Classroom Addition Project (TELACU Construction Management)

Speaker:
Michael Otavka, Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Approval of Fee Amendment No. 1 from TELACU Construction Management for the Sierra Vista Junior High School Classroom Addition Project.
Rationale:

When TELACU’s initial proposal was approved by the Governing Board on July 19, 2017, the commitment from Growthpoint Structures, the modular classroom building manufacturer, was that the classrooms would be manufactured and delivered in time for move-in by August 2018. All of the modular classroom buildings have been delivered and approximately half of the classrooms will be occupied by the start of the spring semester (January 2019); however, the schedule has slipped by several months and the District has been accumulating costs directly related to this delay in the delivery of the modular classroom buildings.

Due to the delayed delivery of the modular classrooms from Growthpoint Structures, TELACU is requesting a five month extension on their contract. TELACU’s initial contract was based on a six month project; however, the delayed delivery of the modular classroom buildings has extended the project and delayed the move into those classrooms.

Financial Impact:
$399,285 from Measure SA (Fund 21).
Recommended Motion:
Approve Fee Amendment No. 1 from TELACU Construction Management for the Sierra Vista Junior High School Classroom Addition Project.

Quick Summary / Abstract:
Presentation of proposed amendments to the Conflict of Interest Code.

All agencies are required to submit to the Board of Supervisors the 2018 Biennial Review Certification form, and, if needed, a revised Conflict of Interest Code with supporting documentation. Attached is the Conflict of Interest Code of the William S. Hart Union High School District including the following proposed amendments: Exhibit B – the title of Chief Operations Officer was changed to Chief Administrative Officer; Exhibit B – Assistant Superintendent, Business Services, has been deleted.

X.C.5. Revisions to Single Plan for Student Achievement: 2018/19

Speaker:
Jan Daisher, Director of Special Programs and Staff Development
Quick Summary / Abstract:
State and federal law require schools to annually review and update their Single Plan for Student Achievement.  These site-specific plans describe school improvement activities that are supported with categorical funds.
Rationale:
State and federal laws require schools to annually review and update their Single Plan for Student Achievement.  These site-specific plans describe school improvement activities that are supported with categorical funds.  As required by Senate Bill 374, the school leadership, site councils, and advisory committees conducted comprehensive needs assessments as well as an analysis of student achievement data based on the California Dashboard in the fall of 2017 to develop objectives for their action plan.

Analysis of the plan reveals necessary updates and revisions.  The school site council has approved its revisions, after consulting with school leadership teams and advisory councils, and recommends them to the Board for approval.  All legal requirements remain in place for each plan that was approved in May 2018.  Annual evaluations conducted at that time meet the requirements of Board Policy 6190.

Attached are the revisions for the school plan for the 2018/19 school year.  Goals and action plans remain aligned with LCAP District goals and school goals for increased student achievement.

Financial Impact:
School Plans account for the spending of Title I federal grant money allocated to school sites specifically for increasing student achievement at schools with 40 percent socioeconomically disadvantaged families.  Allocated costs have not changed.  The revisions simply modify the plan guiding how the funds will be spent on the school site.
Recommended Motion:
Approve 2018/19 revisions to the Single Plan for School Achievement for Hart High School.

X.D.4. 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 evaluated 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 the 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:

E&I, contract number CNR01262 (health care products and services)

A-Z Bus Sales, Inc. (Waterford School District)

Creative Bus Sales (South County Support Services Agency)

Recommended Motion:
Approve the procurement of products and services via a California-approved piggyback contract pursuant to Public Contract Code Section 20118 and Board Policy 3311(a).

Pursuant to Board Policy 3270 and California Education Code Sections 17545-17555 and 60510-60530, staff requests the Governing Board, by unanimous vote of those members present, declare that the property is no longer suitable for school purposes and is of insufficient value to defray the costs of arranging a sale, and thereby authorize the property to be disposed of by donation or disposal. All applicable e-waste will be collected and certified to its proper disposal by a state approved e-waste recycler.

One thousand of the items in the attached list will be donated to the Butte County Office of Education, to assist in the recovery efforts of the schools devastated by the Camp Fire in November of 2018.
