Quick Summary / Abstract:
Information regarding the local indicators of California’s accountability and continuous improvement system, the Dashboard, will be shared.

Rationale:
California’s accountability and continuous improvement system, the Dashboard, contains reports that display the performance of local educational agencies (LEAs), schools, and student groups on a set of state and local measures to assist in identifying strengths, weaknesses, and areas in need of improvement. The reports are broken into two groups, state indicators and local indicators. This report will focus on the four local indicators, define each, and share how the Hart District performed on each.

IX. Action Items
IX.A. Public Hearing for Resolution 18/19-12 Supporting Student Fundraising and Donations to Non-Profits
Speaker:
Ralph Peschek, Chief Financial Officer
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Providing students an opportunity to engage in fundraising activities in support of non-profit agencies is generally recognized as facilitating social and civic community engagement. Engagement in these activities requires Board support and approval.

Rationale:
Associated Student Body funds are legally considered public funds because they are raised through the District’s tax identification number and under its nontaxable status. Without Board authorization, donations to non-profit organizations and students or families in need usually are not allowable because they are considered a gift of public funds, no matter how worthy the cause.

In general, fund-raising that occurs on campus should be for the benefit of the ASB and not for other organizations.

The Financial Crisis & Management Assistance Team (FCMAT) recognizes a student group may organize a fundraiser to support a non-profit charity as long as the event is clearly identified as raising funds to donate to that charity if the Board authorizes those fundraising activities through board action.

Recommended Motion:
Authorize Associated Student Body (ASB) approved and recognized clubs, teams, and organizations to conduct fundraisers with a defined goal of donating proceeds of the fundraising activity to a non-profit organization recognized by the State of California or United States Internal Revenue Service.

Quick Summary / Abstract:
Request for approval of Ninyo & Moore as the DSA materials testing and inspection services company for the Hart High School Two-Story Modular Classroom Building, Addition of two Tennis Courts and Related Site work.

Rationale:
District construction projects must comply with DSA guidelines. DSA requires the District to hire an independent materials testing lab to work with the inspector of record/project inspector to perform any mandated materials tests either required by the DSA or the inspector of record/project inspector. Staff, Lundgren Management and Flewelling & Moody recommend hiring Ninyo & Moore as the project’s DSA materials testing lab of record for the Hart High School Two-Story Modular Classroom Building, Addition of Two Tennis Courts and Related Site Work.

Financial Impact:

Quick Summary / Abstract:
Request for approval of Koury Engineering & Testing, Inc., as the DSA geotechnical monitoring and testing company for the Hart High School Two-Story Modular Classroom Building, Addition of Two Tennis Courts and Related Site Work.

Rationale:
District construction projects must comply with DSA guidelines. DSA requires the District to hire an independent DSA approved geotechnical engineer to provide geotechnical testing and monitoring of grading operations at the site.

Especially important is the monitoring of the engineered fill under the new two-story modular classroom building. Koury Geotechnical authored the soils report for the project and is the most knowledgeable company regarding the soils and compaction requirement for this project.

Speaker:
Michael Otavka, Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Proposal from Earth Resources, Inc., for Storm Water Pollution and Prevention Plan (SWPPP) and registration documents for the Hart High School Two-Story Modular Classroom Building, Addition of Two Tennis Courts and Related Site Work.

Rationale:
The State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) requires that owners of all construction projects in California involving grading or other ground-disturbing activities greater than one acre in size prepare and maintain a SWPPP. Since the construction and laydown area for the Hart High School Two-Story Modular Classroom Building, Addition of Two Tennis Courts and Related Site Work will exceed one acre, a permit must be obtained, and a SWPPP developed and maintained for the duration of the project. This proposal from Earth Resources, Inc., covers the development of the SWPPP and the application for the permit only. This initial work needs to be done and the application made prior to construction work starting on the site.

Financial Impact:
$6,250 from Measure SA (Fund 21).

Recommended Motion:

Speaker:
Michael Otavka, Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Request for approval of proposal for DSA inspection services from RS Martin Construction Services for the Hart High School Two-Story Modular Classroom Building, Addition of Two Tennis Courts and Related Site Work.

Rationale:
It is the responsibility of the project inspector (PI) 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.

Staff solicited proposals from several DSA inspection companies and, along with Lundgren Management and Flewelling & Moody, recommends using RS Martin Construction Services for this project.

Financial Impact:
$124,500 from Measure SA (Fund 21).
