IX.E. Change Order Requests – Saugus High School Auditorium Project – Bid Package Nos. 07 (Commercial Roofing Systems, Inc.) and 16 (Construction Hardware)

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

Approval of Change Order Requests for the Saugus High School Auditorium Project – Bid Package Nos. 07 (Commercial Roofing Systems, Inc.) and 16 (Construction Hardware).

Rationale:

Change Order No. 1, Bid Package 07 (Commercial Roofing Systems, Inc.)

COR #2 is an increased cost of $14,344.50 to change from the 20-22 gauge sheet metal at the fascia to the sterra core paneling as there was a concern of the sheet metal oil canning over time.

COR #3 is an increased cost of $4,429.43 due to an issue with water flow on the roof.  Insulation was added to increase the pitch and help with water flow.

COR #4 is an increased cost of $19,377.21 for the perforated metal paneling at the fly tower which was not in Commercial Roofing’s scope. This work was supposed to be performed by RND Contractors Inc., but they did not complete it. COR #4 has been included as a credit in the change order that TELACU is currently negotiating with RND Contractors Inc., the contractor that was supposed to do the work.

COR #4.1 is for unused owners allowance of $5,043 that will be credited back to the District.

Change Order No. 1, Bid Package 16 (Construction Hardware Company)

Contractor is returning unused owners allowance in the amount of $1,169.30 (credit).

TELACU has thoroughly reviewed these requests and was successful in negotiating lower costs than originally requested by the contractors.

Financial Impact:
$31,938.84 from Measure SA (Fund 21).
Recommended Motion:

Approve Change Order Requests for the Saugus High School Auditorium Project – Bid Package Nos. 07 (Commercial Roofing Systems, Inc.) and 16 (Construction Hardware).

IX.F. Change Order No. 2 – Sierra Vista Junior High School Classroom Addition Project (Bid Package No. SV1801A-2 – K.A.R. Construction, Inc.)

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

Approval of Change Order No. 2 for the Sierra Vista Junior High School Classroom Addition Project (Bid Package No. SV1801A-2 – K.A.R. Construction, Inc.).

Rationale:

There is an elevation change on the site that was not anticipated in the bid documents that required additional concrete steps, a concrete curb, a seat wall and a ramp. Since this work was not included in the bid documents, the contractor is requesting a change order. The architect, construction manager, and District staff recommend approval of this change order for additional work.

WLC Architects and TELACU have thoroughly reviewed these change order requests and were successful in negotiating lower costs than originally requested by the contractor.

Financial Impact:
$22,344.40 from Measure SA (Fund 21).
Recommended Motion:
Approve Change Order No. 2 for the Sierra Vista Junior High School Classroom Addition Project (Bid Package No. SV1801A-2 – K.A.R. Construction, Inc.).

IX.G. Division of the State Architect Project Closeout Services for District-wide Shade Structure Project (Architecture Plus Inc.)

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

Approval of proposal from Architecture Plus Inc., for Division of the State Architect (DSA) Project Closeout Services for the District-wide Shade Structure Project.

Rationale:

The District-wide Shade Structure Project was started in 2015 with shade structures installed on nine District campuses. The project was submitted to and approved by the DSA. Currently, DSA closeout and certification can be accomplished at four of the nine campuses that received the shade structures in 2015. At the other five campuses, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) upgrades (minor in nature) must be done before those shade structure projects can be closed and certified by DSA. The ADA upgrades are planned at those five remaining campuses this summer.

While District staff monitors the certification status of DSA projects, it is the responsibility of the architect and the inspector of record to make sure that a project is ultimately certified through DSA.  The majority of the District projects are certified, but a small number of projects remain uncertified. The major reason for a project being uncertified is that the architect, engineer, inspector of record and/or the contractor has not submitted the formwork necessary for DSA to certify the project.

The closeout for these projects has been difficult since the project does not have either an architect or a construction manager. Both of these project team members are critical in the closeout and certification of DSA projects. It is important for the District to close uncertified projects because unclosed/uncertified projects can hold up new projects. DSA’s policy is to withhold approval of any new project on a school site until all uncertified projects have been closed and certified.

The work necessary to close and certify this project (consisting of nine DSA application numbers) will include working with DSA to collect existing documents on the project, contacting the landscape architect, inspectors, and contractors that worked on the project to request formwork and a meeting with DSA staff.  Staff recommends retaining Architecture Plus Inc., to assist in this effort. If approved, Architecture Plus Inc. will work on the closeout and certification of the four projects that can be closed now (Bowman High School, Sierra Vista Junior High School, Placerita Junior High School, and Saugus High School) and will work on closeout and certification of the shade structure projects at the remaining five schools after the ADA upgrades are completed (Canyon High School, Golden Valley High School, La Mesa Junior High School, Sequoia, and West Ranch High School).

Financial Impact:
$13,975 plus reimbursable expenses from Special Reserve Fund for Capital Outlay Projects (Fund 40.3).
Recommended Motion:
Approve fee proposal from Architecture Plus Inc., for Division of the State Architect Project Closeout Services for District-wide Shade Structure Project.

X.C.6. Revisions to Single Plan for Student Achievement: 2017/18

Speaker:
Jan Daisher, Director of Special Programs and Professional 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 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 2016 to develop objectives for their action plan.

Analysis of each plan reveals necessary updates and revisions. Each 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 2017.  Annual evaluations conducted at that time meet the requirements of Board Policy 6190.

Attached are the revisions for the school plan of Bowman High School and Golden Valley High School for the 2017/18 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 plans guiding how the funds will be spent on the school site.
Recommended Motion:
Approve 2017/18 revisions to the Single Plan for School Achievement for Bowman High School and 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 each plan reveals necessary updates and revisions.  Each 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 plans of Golden Valley High School, Sequoia School, Sierra Vista Junior High School, and Canyon High School 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 plans 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, Sequoia School, Sierra Vista Junior High School, and Canyon High School.
