Speaker:

Quick Summary / Abstract:
The California Department of Education appropriated $300 million statewide to establish the Low-Performing Students Block Grant (LPSBG) which provides funds for local educational agencies serving students identified as low-performing on state English and/or math assessments, who are not otherwise identified for supplemental funding or special education services.
Rationale:
The LPSBG provides funds for local educational agencies (LEAs) serving students identified as low-performing on state English language arts or mathematics assessments, who are not otherwise identified for supplemental grant funding under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), or eligible for special education services.  These funds are designated to address the persistent achievement gap in California’s public schools. Eligible activities include, but are not limited to: professional development activities for certificated staff, instructional materials, and/or additional supports for pupils (as identified in EC Section 41570[e]).  Funds are available for expenditure or encumbrance through the 2020/21 fiscal year.  As a condition of receiving LPSBG funds, an eligible school district is required to develop a plan describing how the funds will increase or improve evidence-based services for the pupils identified to accelerate increases in academic achievement, and how the effectiveness of services will be measured.  In order to ensure community and stakeholder input, the plan shall be discussed and adopted at a regularly scheduled meeting by the governing board of the school district.
Financial Impact:
The District anticipates receiving the following LPSBG funding entitlement for the 2018/19 through 2020/21 school years: $1,448,426.00.

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

Approval of Fee Amendment No. 1 from Ninyo & Moore for geotechnical, materials testing, and inspection services for the Sierra Vista Junior High School Classroom Addition Project.

Rationale:

On April 18, 2018, the Board approved a proposal from Ninyo & Moore for Division of the State Architect (DSA) inspection services for the Sierra Vista Junior High School Classroom Addition Project.

The District is asking for the remaining inplant balance to be applied to this fee amendment resulting in $1,952 credit to the District.

X.C.5. Revisions to Single Plan for Student Achievement: 2017/18

Speaker:
Jan Daisher, Director of Special Programs and Staff Development
Quick Summary / Abstract:
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.
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 372, 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 plans.

Analysis of the plan reveals necessary updates and revisions.  Golden Valley school site council has approved its respective 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 the plan that was approved in November 2017.  The annual evaluation conducted at that time meets the requirements of Board Policy 6190.

Attached are the revisions for spending the remaining Title I funds for the school plan from the 2017/2018 school year. Goals and action plans remain aligned with Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) District goals and school goals for increased student achievement.

Financial Impact:
School Plans account for the spending of Title 1 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 2017/2018 revisions to the Single Plan for School Achievement for Golden Valley High School.

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.
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. Golden Valley 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 Golden Valley High School.
