schedule was revised to include a written report that the schools will provide in
alternate years.

Authorize Title I Schoolwide Program for Greg Rogers Elementary School




The "No Child left Behind" (NClB) legislation passed in December 2001
reauthorized Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
Among other provisions, it provides the expansion of schoolwide programs
(SWPs) by allowing increased local flexibility.

Schools with 40 percent or more students from low-income families are now able
to implement SWPs. The purpose of an SWP is to upgrade the entire
educational program at the site. There are ten important components of an
SWP.

1.   A comprehensive needs assessment of the entire school based on
     information that includes the performance of children in relation to the state
     academic content standards and the state academic achievement
     standards.
2.   Schoolwide reform strategies that:
     •   Provide opportunities for all children to meet the state's Proficient and
         Advanced levels of student achievement.
     •   Use effective methods and instructional strategies formulated on
         scientifically-based research that a) strengthen the core academic
         program in the school; b) increase the amount and quality of learning
         time, such as providing an extended school year, before- and
         after-school classes, and summer programs and opportunities; c) help
         provide an enriched and accelerated curriculum; and d) include
         strategies for meeting the educational needs of historically underserved
         populations.
     •   Address the needs of all children in the school, but particularly the needs
         of low-achieving students and students in the target population of any
         program included in the SWP that are at risk of not meeting the state
         student academic achievement standards.

      •   Address how the school will determine if such needs have been met.
      •   Are consistent with, and are designed to, implement the state and local
          improvement plans, if any.
 3.   Instruction by highly qualified teachers.
 4.   High-quality, ongoing professional development for teachers, principals, and
      paraprofessionals, and if appropriate, for pupil services personnel, parents,
      and other staff to enable all children in the school to meet the state's
      student academic achievement standards.            (The school must devote
      sufficient resources to effectively carry out professional development
      activities, and the school is authorized to enter into a consortium with other
      schools to perform such activities.)
 5.   Strategies to attract highly qualified teachers to schools with the most
      needs.
 6.   Strategies to increase parental involvement, such as family literacy services.

Review Quarterly Report to the San Diego County Office of Education on
Williams Complaints for the Period Ending December 2010

                                                X       Information




In May 2000, a lawsuit was filed against the State of California claiming that low-
performing schools throughout the state were housed in facilities that were dirty,
unsafe, and inadequate with further allegations that these schools were
additionally burdened with unqualified teachers and insufficient instructional
materials. A settlement in Williams VS. California was reached in August 2004
and subsequently enacted into law through Senate Bills 6 and 550 and Assembly
Bills 1550, 2727, and 3001 (chaptered September 29,2004).

The intent of the Williams settlement is to ensure that all students have equal
access to:

        Instructional materials.
      • Qualified teachers.
      • Safe, clean, and adequate facilities.


ADDITIONAL DATA:

A stipulation of the settlement is that all school districts must update Uniform
Complaint Procedures to include:

      • Instructional materials.
      • Teacher vacancies and misassignments.
      • Emergency or urgent facilities issues.

The Board of Education of the Chula Vista Elementary School District enacted
changes to the Uniform Complaint Procedures on December 7, 2004.

Notices have been posted in each classroom in every District school informing
parents/guardians that all classes in all California public schools must have
sufficient instructional materials and that the facilities must be clean, safe, and in
"good repair." The notices also provide information on how and where to file a
complaint.

A quarterly summary report of complaints must be presented to the Board of
Education and to the San Diego County Office of Education. For the period of
October through December 2010, no Williams Complaints were filed in the
District.




Additional funds for Academic Performance Index Decile 1-3 schools have been
made available by the State of California as a result of the Williams Settlement.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

In 2002, the First 5 California Children and Families Commission and 58 county
commissions allocated $206.5 million over a four-year period (2002-06) to implement
programs that would improve the ability of families, schools, and communities to
prepare children to enter Kindergarten ready to succeed.          For funding, the
Commission's priority focused on communities with low-performing schools as
measured by the 2001 Academic Performance Index.

On June 15, 2010, the Board approved a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)
with the Chula Vista Community Collaborative (CVCC) in the amount of $16,000 for
services related to the First 5 Kids on Track Program. These services include case
management, crisis counseling, parenting classes, adult education, and other related
social and health services. The MOU has been amended to include facilitation of
professional development for the Kids on Track staff and subcontractors.


ADDITIONAL DATA:

Copies of the MOU and amendment are available for review in the Office of the
Executive Director for Student, Family, and Community Services and Support.


FISCAL IMPACT/FUNDING SOURCE:

This amendment will increase the contract sum by $3,000. Cost will be funded by
the Kids on Track Program.


STAFF RECOMMENDATION:

Recommend ratification.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), three risk
behaviors-lack of physical activity, poor nutrition, and tobacco use-are
responsible for much of the illness, suffering, and early death related to chronic
disease in the United States. Effectively addressing these three behaviors
through policy, systems, and environmental changes to make healthy choices
can have a significant impact on preventing negative health consequences. For
this purpose, the CDC created Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW)
as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. CPPW has
awarded $373 million to communities across the nation to apply practices and
evidence-based strategies that will have a profound influence on improving
health behaviors by changing community environments.

In March 2010, the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency
(HHSA) received $16.1 million from the CDC to fund the CPPW project in the
San Diego region.       HHSA partnered with the San Diego Association of
Governments (SANDAG) to implement the components of the project related to
regional planning, active transportation, and safe routes to schools. This work is
supported by $3 million in grant funds and will be completed by March 2012.

SANDAG is soliciting applications for $1.15 million in grant funds to be used in
combating rising obesity rates in the San Diego region by planning communities
in ways that support increased physical activity and access to healthy foods.
SANDAG will issue funds by way of four pass-through grant programs to local
government agencies, tribal governments, community programs, and school
districts. The grants are intended to promote public health through innovative
community planning, the creation of safe routes to schools, and the development
of active transportation programs to support biking and walking. At least
19 individual grants will be awarded in March 2011.

Grant programs will be funded through six SANDAG initiatives: Health Impact
and Assessment, Regional Comprehensive Planning Policy, Healthy
Communities Campaign, Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Implementation, Active
Commuter Transportation Campaign, and Regional Bicycle Implementation
Campaign. The District wishes to apply for the following two grants under the

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

As part of the No Child Left Behind (NClB) law passed in 2001, Title I schools not
meeting Adequate Yearly Progress and identified as Program Improvement (PI)
must provide parents of eligible students with notice of their public school choice
options at least 14 days before the start of the school year. This regulation is difficult
to implement in the District, since we do not receive official notification of PI status
until mid-September and the District begins the new academic school year in July.
This waiver will allow the District to inform parents upon official notification by the
California Department of Education after the 14-day period.

Also under current NClB regulations, Title I schools identified as PI Year 2 are
required to provide supplemental educational services (SES) to eligible students.
This waiver will allow District schools to provide SES services to eligible students in
PI Year 1, a year earlier than the law requires.


ADDITIONAL DATA:

Additional information is available for review in the Office of the Assistant
Superintendent/Instructional Services and Support Team leader.


FISCALIMPACT/FUNDING SOURCE:

Funding for SES is provided through Title I.


STAFF RECOMMENDATION:

Recommend conduct public hearing and approval.

Conduct Public Hearing and First Reading: Review Proposed Howard Gardner
Community Charter School Petition

                                        - - - - -Information
BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

Charter school law was first enacted with passage of Senate Bill 1448 in 1992.
It was designed to provide increased flexibility and freedom to reinvent public
education while raising standards of accountability by focusing on student
performance and achievement. Charters provide choice and alternatives within
the public education system and diversify instructional practices and delivery
systems. Charters have emerged as a key element of systemic public school
reform, and the number of charter schools has increased dramatically in the
state and country.

In 1998, Assembly Bill 544 was passed requiring all charter teachers to be fully
credentialed and all charters to move to a direct-funded block grant.
Subsequently in 1999, the passage of Assembly Bill 631 required all charters to
declare the employer for the purpose of collective bargaining. Charters may be
revoked for material violation of the petition elements, including fiscal
mismanagement, failing to meet or pursue pupil outcomes identified in the
charter, or violating provisions of applicable law.

The District has received a charter proposal from the new Howard Gardner
Community Charter School. The founders of the school state that they will create
and foster a community of skilled lifelong learners who value and appreciate
education as a means to achieve success throughout their academic careers.
They pledge to thoughtfully educate students of all academic and developmental
levels using Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences as the framework as well as
research-based instruction, curriculum, and assessment; teacher, staff, and
family collaboration; and creative arts and technology enrichment. Their students
will grow in an environment that values the whole child educational experience
from academic rigor and project-based learning to creative expression and
leadership development.

                                                       Agenda Item 5.B.
                                                       January 18, 2011
Copies of the Howard Gardner Community Charter School petition are available
for review in the Office of the Assistant Superintendent/Instructional Services
and Support Team Leader. The charter petition has been evaluated by Cabinet
and District legal counsel and has been circulated to employee groups.

Under this Charter proposal, Howard Gardner Community Charter School will be
a direct-funded charter acting as its own fiscal agent and will negotiate a
separate Memorandum of Understanding with the District that will include
charges for oversight and other possible services. The charter proposal
submitted to the District envisions 150 students in Kindergarten through
Grade 7. The charter will be the employer for purposes of collective bargaining.
Staff at the school will be charter employees, not District employees.

The charter anticipates serving an ethnically diverse population that reflects the
student body of the District:        68 percent Hispanic, 13 percent White,
11 percent Filipino, 4 percent African-American, 3 percent Asian/
Pacific Islander, and 0.1 percent American Indian or Alaskan. Approximately 35
percent of District students are English Learners, and approximately 45 percent
of students qualify for the Free or Reduced Price Meals Program.

Governance will be by the Board of Directors of Howard Gardner Community
Charter School, a California nonprofit organization.


FISCAL IMPACT/FUNDING SOURCE:

As a direct-funded charter with no services utilized from the District, substantial
Average Daily Attendance, contingent upon the percentage of students attending
from our District, could amount to a potential loss of revenue of up to $810,000 in
current dollars.


STAFF RECOMMENDATION:

Recommend conduct public hearing and first reading.

   Finding 2010-1 (40000)
   After School Education and Safety Program - Before School Component

       Criteria or Specific Requirement
       Determine that the local education agency operating the After School Education and Safety Program
       is compliant with the state components for the before school program as cited under Education Code
       Section 14502.1.

       Condition
       In review of the before school program operating at Otay Elementary School and Juarez-Lincoln
       Elementary School, we noted one day of operation at each site for the month tested that did not
       reflect any pupil service days. Upon further review and through inquiry with District management, it
       was determined that the site scanner system incurred a malfunction on each of those days and no
       pupil service days were credited to the attendance reports. As a result, after manual tabulation, it
       was determined that 13 pupil service days had not been recorded at Otay Elementary School and a
       total of 54 pupil service days had not been recorded at Juarez-Lincoln Elementary School.

       Questioned Costs
       None. A total of 13 pupil service days for Otay Elementary School and a total of 54 pupil service days
       at Juarez-Lincoln Elementary School are understated for the month of May 2010.

        Recommendation
        Amend the appropriate attendance reports to include and record the understated days. In future
        periods, require all monthly attendance reports for all sites be reviewed on a timely basis to ensure
        all pupil service days are being recorded. Monitor the scanner system and if malfunction occurs,
        develop procedures to tabulate pupil service days manually in order that accurate attendance is
        reported for all sites within the District.

        LEA's Response
        The San Diego County .Office of Education developed a procedure to amend attendance
        reports when scanners malfunction or computer networks do not function. School sites provide
        the Executive Director of Student, Family, and Community Services copies of student sign-in sheets
        for the affected sessions which are used to revise the After School Education and Safety Program
        Attendance Report Form. The is then mailed to San Diego County Office of Education.

Finding 2009-1
After School Education and Safety Program - Before School

At Finney Elementary School, a late arrival policy and form
were not established, arrival times and signatures were
not evident for a significant number of days claimed, and
pupil days were being counted when pupil attendance
was less than one-half of the hours offered. At Vista
Square Elementary School, a late arrival form was not
completed for three pupils tested, pupil arrival times were
not consistent with the late arrival policy, and pupil days
were being counted when pupil attendance was less than
one-half of the hours offered.

Require all pupils at both school sites to have a proper
completed late arrival form on file if arriving late to the
program and ensure the late arrival times as listed on the
forms are in agreement to the actual sign-in times as listed
on the control logs. Monitor the tabulation of pupil service
days on the control logs to ensure no pupil attendance is
recorded if the pupil attended less than one-half of the
program hours offered.                                          Implemented

Finding 2009-2
After School Education and Safety Program - After School

At Finney Elementary School, sign-out times on the control
logs were not consistent with the early release forms on
file and sign-out times and signatures of pupils were not
evident on a significant number of days reviewed. At Vista
Square Elementary, sign-out times and signatures of pupils
were not consistent with the early release forms on file,
some early release forms could not be located, and
signatures of pupils were not evident on a significant
number of days reviewed.

Require all pupils at both school sites to have a proper
completed early release form on file, monitor early release
times of pupils on the control logs to ensure the times are
consistent with the times listed on the early release forms,
and require all pupils to sign out and list the time when

STUDENT AS!SE~;SNIEN

The Governing Board believes that the primary purpose of student
assessments should be to assist students, parents/guardians, and teachers to
identify individual student's academic strengths and areas needing
improvement. Results of these assessments inform classroom instruction and
improve teaching and learning. The effectiveness of the District's instructional
programs shall be evaluated, in part, on the basis of assessment outcomes.
The Governing Board recognizes that student assessments are an
important instructional and accountability tool. Assessment data shall be
used to help determine individual student's progress, mastery of
academic standards, and appropriate placement in District programs. In
addition, program effectiveness and staff evaluations shall, as
appropriate, be based in part on indicators of student achievement.

site to allow for critical analysis of student needs.




which it corresponds to the material that is being taught.

The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that assessments are
administered in accordance with law and the test publisher's directions
and that test administration procedures are fair and equitable for all
students.

Instruction

              ASSESSMENT (continued)

Assessments shall also be conducted for the purpose of determining student
eligibility for and appropriate placement in District programs, including:

    1.   Promotion/Acceleration/Retention
    2.   Identification of Individuals for Special Education
    3.   Identification and Education under Section 504
    4.   Title I Programs
    5.   Gifted and Talented Education Program
    6.   Education for English Learners
    7.   Migrant Education Program

A variety of evaluation measures are used for the above purposes. To have
validity, achievement tests should correspond to the material that is being
taught and measure the extent to which students meet specified standards of
achievement. A single test or testing method does not provide a complete
assessment of each student's skills nor does it take into account ethnic,
cultural, or gender differences.

When Districtwide and school-level results of student assessments are
published, the Superintendent or designee may provide supplementary
information to assist parents/guardians and the local community in interpreting
test results and evaluating school performance.

Standardized Testing and Reporting System (STAR)

Education Code 60640-60647 established the STAR program, which requires
districts to annually administer a nationally normed test designated by the State
Board of Education for Grades 2-11. The test for Grades 2-8 contains the
subject areas of reading, spelling, 'Nritten expression English/Language Arts
and Mathematics.                                                             The
Superintendent or designee shall administer mandatory student assessments
in the state STAR program as required by law. (Education Code 60640)

Report on the Chula Vista Community Collaborative

                                                 X        Information

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

The Chula Vista Community Collaborative (CVCC) was launched in the early 1990s
at Vista Square Elementary. Through a Healthy Start planning grant and subsequent
Healthy Start operational grants, CVCC opened its network of six Family Resource
Centers (FRCs). In June 2010, Luz del Sol FRC closed for an extended time due to
construction at Montgomery Middle School.

CVCC continues to operate five FRCs, each offering a gateway to a full range of
family and youth-centered services. Schools frequently make referrals to FRCs
requesting assistance for families or individual students. Services provided include
family support, basic needs services, employment preparation, employment search,
life problems counseling, application assistance for health insurance and food
stamps, parenting classes, and support groups. The focus of the FRCs is to link
families to service providers and to act as the family's advocate.




Tonight's presentation will provide an overview of CVCC, FRCs, and the assistance
they provide to the Chula Vista community.

Additional information is available for review in the Office of the Executive Director
for Student, Family, and Community Services and Support.
