VIII. Discussion Items
VIII.A. Public Hearing – Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) 2019/20

Speaker:
Jan Daisher, Director of Special Programs and Professional Development
Quick Summary / Abstract:
The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) for 2019/20 will be presented for review.
Rationale:
As part of the Local Control Funding Formula, school districts are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP identifies goals and measures progress for student subgroups across eight state priority areas.  Districts must include in their LCAP actions, services, and expenditures to be used to support students district-wide, as well as additional actions and services for low income students, English learners, students with disabilities, and foster youth. The LCAP and the district budget must be presented at a public hearing prior to the board meeting at which the LCAP and the budget are adopted.

Developed with input from teachers, administrators, parents, and students, the goals identified in the Hart District’s LCAP include:

  • Ensure all students have access to highly qualified teachers, school site guidance counselors, Common Core State Standards (CCSS) aligned textbooks and materials, and safe and uncrowded school facilities in good repair.
  • Increase and improve student achievement by providing rigorous and CCSS aligned curriculum and instruction in English, math, and social studies, and Next Generation Science Standards.
  • Increase the number of students prepared for college and career by enrolling students in a broad course of rigorous study that includes career pathways and Career Technical Education courses.
  • Cultivate a safe and positive school culture that supports all students’ personal and academic growth and encourages parent engagement.

Staff will present a brief overview of the proposed actions and services that will support each of these goals.

VIII.B. Public Hearing – 2019/20 Budget

Speaker:
Ralph Peschek, Chief Financial Officer
Quick Summary / Abstract:
A public hearing regarding the District’s 2019/20 Budget will be conducted.
Rationale:
California Education Code Sections 42103 and 42127 require that, on or before July 1 of each year, the governing board of each school district hold a public hearing on the budget to be adopted for the subsequent fiscal year, and adopt a budget subsequent to the public hearing.  Furthermore, the budget and supporting documentation must be available for public review at least three working days prior to the public hearing.
The initial 2019/20 Budget for the District has been prepared using the state-required forms.  A summary of proposed revenues, expenditures, transfers, and fund balances for all funds are attached.  Staff will make a presentation on the budget at the meeting and a public hearing will be conducted.

The District has prepared the budget using the Governor’s May Revision proposal as the basis for the budget assumptions, and notes that at the time of preparation, the State of California had not yet enacted a 2019/20 Budget Act.  Therefore, some of the assumptions included in the District’s budget plan may change.  In accordance with statute, the District will revise the Adopted Budget to reflect changes, as necessary, in projected income or expenditures within 45 days of the final State budget adoption.

The Governing Board will be presented with the action item to approve the District’s proposed 2019/20 Budget on June 19, 2019.

IX. Action Items
IX.A. Resolution No. 18/19-36 Annual Delegation of Administrative Authority to Process Routine Budget Revisions, Adjustments, and Transfers

Speaker:
Ralph Peschek, Chief Financial Officer
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Resolution No. 18/19-36 delegating administrative authority to the Superintendent, as specified, to process routine budget revisions, adjustments, and transfers in 2019/20 is presented for adoption.
Rationale:
The Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) allows the Governing Board to delegate administrative authority, through the adoption of a formal resolution, to the Superintendent to provide for the processing of certain routine budget revisions.

Resolution No. 18/19-36 will allow the Business Office staff, with the Superintendent’s approval, to prepare and submit routine budget revisions (technical adjustments within or between expenditure accounts and within or between resources necessary for the payment of District obligations) to LACOE for processing prior to Governing Board approval.  All routine budget revisions will be submitted to the Governing Board for adoption and ratification with the District’s interim reports and in conjunction with the annual year-end closing of the District’s financial records.

Routine budget revisions will not include any revisions, adjustments, or transfers impacting fund balance (i.e. increasing or decreasing revenues, reducing or increasing fund balance, or transfers between funds).  Such non-routine budget adjustments will continue to be presented to the Governing Board for approval prior to processing and submission to LACOE for review and approval.

This resolution is only effective for the 2019/20 fiscal year.

Recommended Motion:
Adopt Resolution No. 18/19-36 delegating administrative authority to the Superintendent, as specified, to process routine budget revisions, adjustments, and transfers in 2019/20.
Attachments:
Resolution No 18/19-36
IX.B. Resolution No. 18/19-37 Determination of Uses of Education Protection Account Funding

Speaker:
Ralph Peschek, Chief Financial Officer
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Resolution No. 18/19-37 determining the uses for Education Protection Account revenues is presented for approval..
Rationale:
Proposition 55, “The California Children’s Education and Health Care Protection Act of 2016”, extended until 2030 the tax increases on the Californians earning in excess of $250,000 per year, which voters previously approved under Proposition 30.

The revenues generated from the Proposition are deposited into a state account called the Education Protection Account (EPA).  School districts receive funds from the EPA based on their proportionate share of the statewide revenue limit.  A corresponding reduction is made to the school district’s revenue limit equal to the amount of their EPA entitlement.

Both Proposition 30 and Proposition 55 provided constitutional protection that the funds placed in the EPA are exclusively dedicated for classroom expenses, not administrative expenses.  Before June 30 of each year, the State Director of Finance is required to estimate the total amount of additional revenues that will be available for transfer into the Education Protection Account during the next fiscal year.

Financial Impact:
As required, the District’s Education Protection Account estimated funds and expenditure uses for 2019/20 are shown below:

ESTIMATED FUNDS                          $37,064,319

ESTIMATED EXPENDITURES*        $37,064,319

*Consistent with prior years, the District will expend the funds on classroom teacher salaries and benefits.

An accounting of the actual amount received from the EPA and the related expenditures will be posted on the District’s website.

Recommended Motion:
Adopt Resolution No. 18/19-37 determining the uses of Proposition 30 Education Protection Account Funds.

IX.C. Resolution No. 18/19-38 Authorization of Interfund Cash Transfers for Fiscal Year 2019/20

Speaker:
Ralph Peschek, Chief Financial Officer
Quick Summary / Abstract:
A request for delegated authority to process routine interfund cash transfers to the Superintendent or Designee for fiscal year 2019/20 is presented for approval.
Rationale:
During the normal course of business operations, there are routine interfund accounting activities that take place that necessitate the need of cash transfers.  Staff is requesting that the Board delegate the authority to process routine interfund cash transfers to the Superintendent or Designee.  The amount of any single interfund cash transfer shall not exceed $5,000,000.
Recommended Motion:
Approve Resolution No. 18/19-38 delegating authority to the Superintendent or Designee to allow interfund cash transfers in an amount not to exceed $5,000,000.
Attachments:
Resolution No 18/19-38
IX.D. Adoption of Resolution No. 18/19-40 Requesting the Issuance of Tax and Revenue Anticipation Notes (TRANs)

Speaker:
Ralph Peschek, Chief Financial Officer
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Every year the District has the opportunity to join the Los Angeles County Schools Pooled Financing Program for Tax and Revenue Anticipation Notes (TRANs). The Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) provides the vehicle for districts to pool their TRANs so that they are more marketable and thus have the potential to earn a higher reinvestment spread.
Rationale:
TRANs are a low cost borrowing mechanism that districts can use in order to solve potential cash flow shortages throughout their fiscal year. The way in which TRANs work is that a district sells revenue anticipation notes and then reinvests these proceeds at a higher rate of return. This reinvestment spread is what makes the cost of borrowing for the district lower than if they were to go to a lending institution.

The TRANs’ size is based upon the District’s unique projected cash flow for 2019/20. The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company are the pooled TRANs underwriters’ representative and sets these limits for the participating districts.

The District does project a negative cash flow during 2019/20. We anticipate a cash deficit need of up to $15,000,000, due to the timing of November/December state aid payments and receipt of property taxes.

The Wm. S. Hart Union High School District has not participated in the TRANs for several years.  However, the District is projected to experience a negative balance in December 2019.  LACOE will deposit the money into the District’s bank account in August 2019, repay half in January 2020, and the balance in May 2020. The total transaction costs, including issuance costs, have historically been approximately 2 percent.

Financial Impact:
Estimated cost of issuance and interest could be up to $300,000 (less potential interest earnings).
Recommended Motion:
Adopt Resolution No. 18/19-40  Requesting the Issuance of the 2019-2020 Tax and Revenue Anticipation Notes for the District by the Board of Supervisors of the County of Los Angeles, not to exceed $15,000,000, as presented.
Attachments:
Resolution No 18_19-40 TRANs
IX.E. Meal Price Increase

Speaker:
Ralph Peschek, Chief Financial Officer
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Business Services is proposing a $0.25 price increase for both breakfast and lunch meals effective for 2019/20 school year.  The breakfast price would increase to $2.00 and the lunch price would increase to $3.25.
Rationale:
Meal prices have not been increased for over a decade.  With the continued increase in food, labor and overall operational costs, it is necessary to increase the meal prices in order to maintain the fiscal solvency of the Cafeteria Fund.  This increase will bring the Hart District to a level comparable to, however still lower than, other districts in the area.
Recommended Motion:
Staff recommends that the Governing Board approve the proposed meal price increase for both breakfast and lunch, effective July 1, 2019.
IX.F. Declaration of Need for Fully Qualified Educators

Speaker:
Michael Vierra, Assistant Superintendent, Human Resources
Quick Summary / Abstract:
The District anticipates a need for using a small number of emergency permits for teachers during the 2019/20 school year.  The Declaration of Need for Fully Qualified Educators allows for these emergency authorizations to be used in the event teachers with the exact credentials needed cannot be found.
Rationale:
When the District is unable to find a teacher with exactly the appropriate credentials, the State has a process for seeking temporary waivers and emergency authorizations.  Districts are required to submit a Declaration of Need to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing.  The Declaration says that the District has been unable to find an acceptable, qualified employee with the exact credentials needed for a certain position.  It further says that the District will work with the person who has the emergency authorization.

To qualify for an emergency authorization, a person must be a college graduate, pass the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST), be cleared through a fingerprint check, submit a complete application packet, pay necessary fees, complete additional specific requirements for the issuance of a particular authorization, and be covered by the Declaration of Need.

The District generally has a need to obtain temporary waivers and emergency permits for a small percentage of teachers.

Recommended Motion:
Approve the attached Declaration of Need for Fully Qualified Educators for 2019/20.

IX.J. Resolution No. 18/19-35 – Approving the use of Middle School Pupil Grant Eligibility for the Castaic High School Project

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

A request to allow the use of middle school grant eligibility for the construction of the Castaic High School Project to maximize the amount of state funding is presented for approval.

Rationale:

BACKGROUND

In December 2016, the District applied for state School Facility Program grants for the construction of the new Castaic High School Project.  The District’s application will soon be reviewed and eventually approved for funding by the Office of Public School Construction/State Allocation Board under the School Facilities New Construction Program.

Typically, in order to receive funding from the state, the District must have new construction grant eligibility at the grade level of the students for which the project will house.  The District currently has 2,153 ninth through twelfth grade eligibilities available for the Project application out of the maximum of 2,347 pupils grants that can be requested. In order to maximize the state grants for the Project, however, the state School Facilities Program allows districts to request new construction grant funding utilizing eligibility determined at a different grade level for all or a portion of the proposed Project.  In order to do so, the state requires the District’s Governing Board to publicly acknowledge by adopting a resolution and “housing plan” that the District is using state funding eligibility in an alternative manner.

STAFF ANALYSIS

The District proposes to utilize some of its middle school grade level pupil eligibility to request state funding for the Project.  The use of middle school eligibility will result in approximately $2.65 million more in state new construction grants.

If the Governing Board does choose to pursue the New Construction Program funds in this alternative manner, it is also important to note the following:

  • If the District is concerned with using middle school eligibility to construct these high school classrooms, there is no guarantee that the middle school eligibility would remain available in the future.  The state program rules now require that a district’s eligibility be updated in the year in which the state reviews an application as opposed to when an application is filed. In other words, there’s no guarantee that the untapped middle school eligibility will be available in subsequent years.

  • While the middle school pupil eligibility will be reduced as a result of the Project, there will likely be sufficient middle school eligibility to support the applications for funding for the projects at Placerita and Sierra Vista Junior High Schools based on the current eligibility assessment (but subject to demonstration of eligibility at the time the state reviews those applications).

Financial Impact:

The District will receive approximately $2.65 million in additional State grants for Castaic High School by approving this resolution.

Recommended Motion:

Approve Resolution No. 18/19-35 and attached housing plan allowing the use of middle school grant eligibility for the construction of the Castaic High School Project to maximize the amount of state funding.

Quick Summary / Abstract:

A fee proposal from Ninyo & Moore for materials testing and inspection services for the Arroyo Seco Junior High School Column Repair Project is presented for approval.

Rationale:

While this project is considered repair and does not fall under the jurisdiction of the Division of the State Architect, KPFF, the project’s structural engineer, has advised staff that oversight of a materials testing lab is necessary. The materials testing  lab will be on call to test the strength of concrete and to certify the steel reinforcing bars used to repair the columns. The materials testing lab will also be on call to perform any other materials tests that the structural engineer finds necessary during the repair process.

Financial Impact:

$17,706 to be paid from the General Fund (01.0), Maintenance Budget.

Quick Summary / Abstract:
An agreement with Precision Pavement Striping for the Pavement Sealing and Striping Projects at Arroyo Seco Junior High School, La Mesa Junior High School, Golden Valley High School, Saugus High School, and the District Office is presented for ratification.

IX.N. Fee Amendment No. 1 – Hart High School Two-Story Classroom Building, Tennis Court Expansion and Utility Infrastructure Project (Lundgren Management Corporation)

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

Fee Amendment No. 1 from Lundgren Management Corporation for the Hart High School Two-Story Classroom Building, Tennis Court Expansion and Utility Infrastructure Project is presented for approval.

Rationale:

Lundgren Management Corporation’s (LM) agreement for Construction Management (CM) services for the project was Board approved on January 18, 2017. Since then, LM has performed multiple-prime bidding services, estimating and project oversight services for three phases of infrastructure, site work and related project services affiliated with the completion of the infrastructure and new two-story classroom building.

The project was scheduled to be completed in December 2019 (including close-out). Due to weather delays and unforeseen site soils conditions encountered during Phase 2B infrastructure and the building site-work portions of the project, the current project schedule shows a March 2020 completion.

LM is requesting additional fees for extended services from January through March (three months at $77,051/month).  LM is also requesting additional reimbursable expenses for providing site security services prior to the installation of the pre-fabricated building sections, after site delivery and while the buildings are on the Hart High School campus. The security has been necessary to protect the buildings during the evening and early morning hours, in addition to weekends.

As requested by the District, LM hired the security company (Copper Eagle) and has processed this cost through the existing reimbursable account. In conjunction with the revised project completion date, there are also additional reimbursable expenses (LM, inspector offices, and support services). Reimbursable expenses are billed, at cost (no-mark-up) and any remaining funds will not be billed to the District.

Financial Impact:

$231,153 plus $55,475 in reimbursable expenses from Measure SA (Fund 21).

Recommended Motion:
Approve Fee Amendment No. 1 – Hart High School Two-Story Classroom Building, Tennis Court Expansion and Utility Infrastructure Project from Lundgren Management Corporation.

IX.O. Change Order No. 003 – Hart High School Two Story Modular Classroom Building Project (American Modular Systems, Inc.)

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

Change Order No. 003 for the Hart High School Two-Story Modular Classroom Building Project for tasks related to mitigating a rain delay (American Modular Systems, Inc., (AMS) is presented for approval.

Rationale:

There was a higher than usual amount of rainfall this past winter, which delayed construction of the two-story modular classroom building by four to six weeks. To avoid costs related to the delays including extended overhead, a delayed delivery schedule, and consequently, a delayed completion of the building, AMS, Lundgren, and staff discussed options for recovering some of the time lost due to the rain delay.

A decision was made to make up the delay caused by the rain by re-sequencing the construction of the foundations. That re-sequencing made it necessary to (1) reshuffle the modular building arrangement on the site, (2) upgrade the size of the crane lifting the modules into place, (3) re-mobilize the crane, and (4) add additional No Parking dates on the street which required additional City permits. While this plan will allow recovery of the time lost due to rain delays, there is a cost for this change. However, Lundgren Management and staff believe that this cost is less than the cost for prime contractor and consultant extended overhead costs caused by the rain delay.

Financial Impact:
$21,160 from Measure SA (Fund 21).
Recommended Motion:
Approve Change Order No. 003 for the Hart High School Two-Story Modular Classroom Building Project for tasks related to mitigating rain delays (American Modular Systems, Inc.).

XI.B.2. Meeting of Committee on Assignments

Speaker:
Michael Vierra, Assistant Superintendent, Human Resources
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Governing Board approval is needed to establish the Committee on Assignments which approves the assignment of teachers to elective classes when a scheduling need arises.
Rationale:
Each semester as school site administrators develop the master schedule of classes and teaching assignments, there is a need to place some teachers in assignments that do not directly correspond with areas of credentialing.  For example, a science teacher may pick up one section of a photo class along with his/her science class assignments.  The teacher is quite capable of teaching the photo class but does not have the proper authorization listed on his/her teaching credential.  There is no way of predicting the exact needs since there are always variations in student enrollment, class sizes, teacher leaves, etc.

In accordance with Education Code 44258.7 (c) and (d), the District may properly assign these teachers to elective classes for which they are capable but not specifically credentialed to teach.  (Elective class is defined as any class other than mathematics, English, science, or social science.)  A committee of teachers and administrators may be authorized to meet and approve the assignments for the semester.  The Governing Board must approve the establishment of the committee.

Committee members serve for one year.  The Hart District Teachers Association has routinely submitted the names of three qualified teachers to serve on this committee should there be a need to meet.  The Assistant Superintendent has also routinely been on the committee.

When reviewing teachers’ assignments, the committee looks for evidence that the person can effectively teach the course that is assigned.  They look at years of experience in teaching this or a similar course, college units in the discipline, special training or expertise in the subject area, the desire to teach the course, and other factors that seem appropriate.

Recommended Motion:
Approve establishment of the Committee on Assignments.

XI.C. Consent Calendar-Curriculum/Instruction
XI.C.1. Recommendation of Textbooks/Instructional Materials Adoption, 2019/20

Speaker:
Dave LeBarron, Director of Curriculum and Assessment
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Textbooks have been recommended for adoption for the 2019/20 school year.
Rationale:
Integrated Chinese 4th Edition – Publisher: Cheng & Tsui Company, Inc.– Author: Jill Cheng – Course Area: – Mandarin – Grade: 9-12Integrated Chinese (IC) revolutionized the world of Chinese language learning by introducing the approach of teaching all four-language skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing concurrently. Ever since the 1st edition was published in 1997, Integrated Chinese has been the leading series for Chinese language learning in the United States and beyond. In developing the latest edition (4th edition), the authors have consulted the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) 21st Century Skills Map for World Language. The national standards for foreign language learning in the 21st century focus on goals in five areas—Communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities. In addition to classifying the applicable Language Practice activities by communication mode (interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational), the 4th edition has added a host of materials that address the 5 Cs. The delivery of IC via the new ChengTsui Web App elevates the teaching and learning experience by presenting multimedia and interactive content in a truly blended and integrated way.

All the Light We Cannot See – Publisher: Simon & Schuster– Author: Doerr – Course Area: – AP Literature – Grade:12All the Light We Cannot See is a novel written by American author Anthony Doerr, published by Scribner on May 6, 2014.  It won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the 2015 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction.  Set in occupied France during World War II, the novel centers on a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths eventually cross.  According to AP® Central: An AP English course in Literature and Composition should engage students in the careful reading and critical analysis of imaginative literature. Through the close reading of selected texts, students should deepen their understanding of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure for their readers. As they read, students should consider a work’s structure, style, and themes as well as such smaller-scale elements as the use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism, and tone.

Song of Solomon – Publisher: Vintage International – Author: Morrison – Course Area: – AP Literature – Grade: 12Song of Solomon is a 1977 novel by American author Toni Morrison.  It follows the life of Macon “Milkman” Dead III, an African-American man living in Michigan, from birth to adulthood.  This book won the National Book Critics Circle Award, was chosen for Oprah Winfrey’s popular book club, and was cited by the Swedish Academy in awarding Morrison the 1993 Nobel Prize in literature.  In 1998, the Radcliffe Publishing Course named it the 25th best English-language novel of the 20th century.  According to AP® Central: An AP English course in Literature and Composition should engage students in the careful reading and critical analysis of imaginative literature. Through the close reading of selected texts, students should deepen their understanding of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure for their readers. As they read, students should consider a work’s structure, style, and themes as well as such smaller-scale elements as the use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism, and tone.

Beloved – Publisher: Vintage International– Author: Morrison – Course Area: – AP Literature – Grade: 12Beloved is a 1987 novel by the American writer Toni Morrison. Set after the American Civil War (1861–65), it is inspired by the story of an African-American slave, Sethe, who escaped slavery in Kentucky late January 1856 by fleeing to Ohio, a free state. Morrison had come across the story “A Visit to the Slave Mother who Killed Her Child” in an 1856 newspaper article published in the American Baptist and reproduced in The Black Book, a miscellaneous compilation of black history and culture that Morrison edited in 1974.  Beloved begins in 1873 in Cincinnati, Ohio, where the protagonist Sethe, a former slave, has been living with her eighteen-year-old daughter Denver.  Sethe’s mother-in-law, Baby Suggs, lived with them until her death eight years earlier.  Just before Baby Suggs’ death, Sethe’s two sons, Howard and Buglar, run away.  Sethe believes they fled because of the malevolent presence of an abusive ghost that haunted their house at 124 Bluestone Road for years.  The story opens with an introduction to the ghost.  The novel won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1988 and was a finalist for the 1987 National Book Award.  It was adapted during 1998 into a movie of the same name starring Oprah Winfrey.  A New York Times survey of writers and literary critics ranked it the best work of American fiction from 1981 to 2006.  The book’s dedication reads “Sixty Million and more”, referring to the Africans and their descendants who died as a result of the Atlantic slave trade.  According to AP® Central: An AP English course in Literature and Composition should engage students in the careful reading and critical analysis of imaginative literature. Through the close reading of selected texts, students should deepen their understanding of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure for their readers. As they read, students should consider a work’s structure, style, and themes as well as such smaller-scale elements as the use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism, and tone.

XI.C.10. Revisions to Single Plan for Student Achievement: 2018/19

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 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, Bowman High School and La Mesa Junior 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.

XI.C.11. School Plan for Student Achievement: 2019/20

Speaker:
Jan Daisher, Director of Special Programs and Staff Development
Quick Summary / Abstract:
State and federal laws require schools to develop a plan called the “School 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 develop a plan called the “School Plan for Student Achievement.”  These site-specific plans describe school improvement activities that are supported with categorical funds.  Senate Bill 374 requires that school leadership, site councils, and advisory committees conduct a needs assessment as well as an analysis of student achievement data based on the California Dashboard to develop objectives for their plans.  Staff can only approve categorical purchases that directly support the objectives cited.

Again this year, in keeping with the District Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), all schools have aligned their School Plan for Student Achievement goals with the four goals of the LCAP.

Each school site council has approved its respective School Plan for Student Achievement after consulting with required advisory groups and recommends it to the Board for approval.  All legal requirements have been met for each plan.  The annual evaluations will be conducted to meet the requirements of Board Policy 6190.

Because of the similarities in funding and the alignment with LCAP, each school plan is similar in design and format.  Attached is the plan for each Title I school for the 2019/20 school year.  Actual allocations will be determined in August when funding is provided by the District Title I grant.  To facilitate implementation, Board approval is requested.

Recommended Motion:

A District science team has worked to quantify the needed materials, and AquaPhoenix has provided the best price for materials, packaging, shipping, and support.

Funds for the cost of these materials will not come from the District’s general fund. Schools will cover the entire costs of their needed consumables from their site funds.

Financial Impact:
Not to exceed the amount of $25,000.

XI.D.11. 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 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 contracts during the 2019/20 fiscal year:

Quick Summary / Abstract:
A renewal agreement with Davis Demographics & Planning, Inc. (Davis), for demographic consulting services for 2019/20 to 2021/22 is presented for approval.
Rationale:
For more than 20 years, the District has contracted with Davis to generate student enrollment projections, prepare demographic reports, and maintain the Schoolsite Locator Web Application.  The feeder elementary school districts within the District’s attendance area, with the exception of the Saugus Union School District, also currently engage Davis for this work.  As the lead contracting agency, the District invoices the participating elementary school districts (Castaic, Newhall, and Sulphur Springs) for their share of the annual cost.

Staff proposes to enter into an agreement for the next three (3) years, specifically 2019/20, 2020/21, and 2021/2, allowing for a multi-year discount.  The District may terminate the agreement at any time, with or without cause, by providing a thirty (30) day written notice, and subject to a cancellation fee equal to 25 percent of the annual contract amount (estimated at $9,956) for any year not completed.

For the 2020/21 fiscal year only, the districts may elect to contract for a student yield factor study for an additional cost.

Total estimated annual cost of $39,823 to be split between the four participating school districts proportional to 2018 enrollment, plus an estimated $7,605 in 2020/21 only if the districts decide to engage in the student yield factor study.  Assuming all four districts elect to participate, the District’s estimated annual cost will be $26,356 plus $3,150 for the 2020/21 optional study.  Fees are based on actual hours worked at an hourly rate of $170, with a 10 percent discount associated with a three-year term.  In the event any of the elementary school districts choose not participate, the District will be responsible for absorbing that district’s cost, as specified.  Fee to be paid from the Capital Facilities Fund.
