VI.d. Approval of Comprehensive School Safety Plans
Recommended Motion:

Approve Comprehensive School Safety Plans for district sites.



Education Code 32286 and Board Policy 0450 state that all school sites must maintain a comprehensive safety plan to ensure that students and staff are safe and secure on campus and are free from physical or psychological harm.  Beginning in September, the Student Services Department has worked closely with sites to update their plans, conduct safety drills, and implement an emergency communication drill procedure.  The plans must be reviewed and updated each year and approved by the Governing Board.

The Holmes Junior High School Comprehensive School Safety Plan is an example of the full safety plan each school site must maintain.  Safety Plans are the same at all sites with the exception of site specific information.  The remaining attachments include site specific information for other schools.

VI.e. VI.i. Accept Bid and Approve Awarding of Contract for Dedicated Internet for Da Vinci Charter Academy
Recommended Motion:

Accept Bid and Approve Awarding of Contract for Dedicated Internet for Da Vinci Charter Academy.  


The Internet connection for Da Vinci Charter Academy has an independent network connection due to their unique data needs based upon their program. The existing connection is no longer adequate to meet the school's program needs.

Through the E-Rate RFP process, we solicited competitive proposals for these services. Staff evaluated the five (5) proposals received, to identify the most optimal solution at the lowest price. 

Staff recommends awarding the bid to AT&T for the Da Vinci Charter Academy Internet Connection.  The term of the agreement is three years beginning 7-1-2019.

Financial Impact:

The net annual cost after the 50% E-Rate discount will be $6,000 and paid from the Da Vinci program budget.  There will be no impact to the General Fund. 

AT&T Contract- Da Vinci

VII.a. Second Interim Budget Planning
Recommended Motion:
Discuss the current budget status and the budget topics for the upcoming Second Interim Budget. 


The next official budget report for the District is the Second Interim.  This budget report will include the updates since the last budget report (First Interim), a review of actuals to date and projections for next year using the Governor’s January Budget proposals.  This report will include changes in budget projections for the current year as well as future years.

The Governor's proposal includes revenue to fund the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) for inflation (COLA). As part of the funding formula (LCFF), districts are also required to develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) concurrently with the budget.

For 2019-20, the proposed budget contains funding for LCFF growth that calculates $2.4 million (+3.5% per student) of possible on-going new funding next year. The budget proposal also includes other one-time State level funding to reduce the impact of STRS pension rate increases. If approved by the legislature, this could mitigate the District's STRS annual cost increase by $400,000 for next year.

Some important things to know about the increased funding are:

  • The LCFF revenue funds all area of district needs:
    • Employee Compensation
    • State Pension Cost Increases (STRS and PERS employer rates)
    • Staffing required for student enrollment levels (site and program)
    • Inflation/Cost Increases
    • Deficit Spending Reduction

Staff will discuss the status of the upcoming budget with these themes and make recommendations on a course of action for the Second Interim Budget and 2019-20 Adoption Budget.

The Second Interim Budget Update Presentation will be posted prior to March 7, 2019
