VI.e. Approve Sale of Surplus Property
Recommended Motion:

Staff recommends that the Board of Education authorize the Chief Business Officer to identity, declare and dispose of personal property in accordance with Section 17545 of the Education Code. 

Rationale:

Education Code Section 17545 authorizes the governing board of any school district to sell for cash any personal property belonging to the district if the property is not required for school purposes, or if it should be disposed of for the purpose of replacement, or if it is unsatisfactory or not suitable for school use. The governing board may choose to conduct a sale of personal property under this section by means of a public auction conducted by employees of the district or other public agency or by contract with a public auction firm. The Board of Education may delegate to the district employee responsible for conducting the auction the authority to transfer the personal property to the highest responsible bidder upon completion of the auction and after payment has been received by the district.

The Technology Department has collected an inventory of obsolete computer related equipment.  All items were found either to be not serviceable for use or are not repairable.  The district will use a state-approved vendor, PC Assets Recovery and Disposal, Inc., who will pick up surplus equipment from each site and recycle according to state and federal environmental laws and then provide a certified report detailing the services performed.

VI.f. Approve Education Protection Account Report
Recommended Motion:
Approve plan determining to spend the monies received from the Education Protection Account per the attached reports.


Rationale:

In November 2012, the voters approved Proposition 30, a State tax measure to bolster the revenue sources of the State budget that declined from the economic crisis.  This tax allowed the State to stabilize funding to K-12 education which included maintaining annual base revenue apportionments and reducing funding deferrals (late payments of apportionments, IOU’s). In November 2016 voters approved Proposition 55, a new measure to continue the increased income taxes to continue to support K-12 education funding. These funds continue to be allocated through the LCFF sources as the Education Protection Account State Aid.

On an annual basis the district must acknowledge this source of funds and report out the use of the funds.  It is important to note that these funds are all budgeted and encumbered as part of our normal budget process. They are not new program funds; they are an alternate State cash receipts source of revenue that are part of our funding formula from student attendance allocated through the Local Control Funding formula (LCFF). This is an administrative financial accounting and reporting process.

 
Financial Impact:

This is a statutory requirement to receive the apportioned funds that are approximately $6.6 million for DJUSD and $1 million for Da Vinci Charter Academy.

VI.g. Resolution No. 01-20: Authorization for Designated District Personnel to Sign Various Documents
Recommended Motion:

Approve Resolution No. 01-20 authorizing designated district personnel to sign various documents.




Rationale:

Education Code Section 4233 provides that the governing Board of each school district shall be responsible for filing or causing to be filed with the County Superintendent of Schools the verified signature of each person authorized to sign orders in its name.  No order on the funds of any school district shall be approved by the County Superintendent of Schools, unless the signatures are on file in his office. 

In order to strengthen controls and to facilitate and streamline the process of approval of various documents in the District, it is customary for school districts to designate persons in different positions for particular functions.  The recommended designees as outlined in the attached resolution will accomplish this objective.
