TO:          Carol Parish, Ed.D., District Superintendent

FROM:        Shelley Burgess, Assistant Superintendent, Educational Leadership

SUBJECT:     Restructuring Plans for Berry, Nicoloff, and Pence Schools


BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Under NCLB, when a school is in restructuring status (Program Improvement years 4
and 5), the LEA (Local Education Agency - South Bay Union School District) must take
intensive and far-reaching interventions to revamp completely the operation and
governance of that school. Restructuring means a major reorganization of a school’s
governance structure arrangement by an LEA that:

•   Makes fundamental reforms, such as significant changes in the school’s staffing and
    governance, to improve student academic achievement in the school;
•   Has substantial promise to improve student academic achievement and enable the
    school to make AYP as defined by the state’s accountability system; and
•   Is consistent with state law.

These restructuring options allow the LEA to choose one or more solutions that best
address the identified needs of the school and school community. The LEA must
develop a restructuring plan by implementing at least one of the following alternative
governance options:

•   Close the school and reopen it as a charter school;
•   Replace all or most of the school staff (which may include the principal) who are
    relevant to the failure to make AYP;
•   Enter into a contract with an entity, such as a private management company, with a
    demonstrated record of effectiveness, to operate the public school; and
•   Implement any other major restructuring of the school’s governance
    arrangement that makes fundamental reforms and leads to improved student
    achievement.

CURRENT CONSIDERATIONS
Berry, Nicoloff, and Pence Schools are currently in Year 4 of program improvement.
During this year, a restructuring plan has to be written by SBUSD for each school that
will be ready to implement if the school enters year 5 of program improvement. District-
School Liaison Teams (DSLT) were created at each site to conduct an in depth analysis
of student achievement trends and to examine the school’s policies and practices that
both support and hinder student achievement. After careful review and consideration,
the DSLTs have made recommendations for their sites that have informed the
restructuring plans for each school.




IMPACT ON STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
The restructuring plan dictates making fundamental reforms, such as significant
changes in school programs, school staffing and school governance for the purpose of
improving student achievement based on AYP targets.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
The LEA is required to examine the use of its Title I funds to ensure that adequate
support is provided to these schools to ensure successful implementation of the plans.

RECOMMENDATION
It is respectfully requested that the Superintendent recommend approval of the
Restructuring Plans for Berry, Nicoloff and Pence Schools (Exhibit A).


SUPERINTENDENT’S RECOMMENDATION
Recommend approval.

           Godfrey Berry School Restructuring Plan
                        May 10, 2011

Overview
NCLB requires the state and district to review annually the academic progress of
federally funded Title I schools and to identify schools in need of improvement. Berry
Elementary School has been identified as a Year Four Program Improvement (PI)
school after consecutive years of not making adequate yearly progress (AYP).
California determines AYP by considering the following measures:

   •   The percentage of students scoring at the “proficient” or “advanced” level on the
       California Standards Tests for English-language arts and mathematics
   •   The percentage of students participating in those tests
   •   California’s own accountability measurement of progress, the Academic
       Performance Index (API)

Over the course of the last three years, Berry has made steady growth in both ELA and
mathematics. Since 2008, their API has grown from 719 to 774, and there has been a
significant increase in the percentage of students scoring proficient or advanced on the
CST (14% growth in ELA and 10% in mathematics). Despite these achievement gains,
Berry Elementary School continues in PI because it did not achieve AYP in the area of
English Language Arts, both school-wide and for their Hispanic and socio-economically
disadvantaged subgroups.

Under NCLB, when a school is in restructuring status (Program Improvement years four
and five), the LEA (Local Education Agency - South Bay Union School District) must
make intensive and far-reaching interventions to revamp completely the operation and
governance of that school. The South Bay Union School District established a District-
Site Leadership Team (DSLT) to develop a plan for restructuring. Berry’s DSLT is
composed of a variety of individuals with expertise in school reform strategies who are
representative of the school community. The DSLT included: one district level
administrator, Ms. Burgess, Assistant Superintendent of Educational Leadership; site
principal, Ms. Smith-Ough; Academic Coach, Ms. Duarte; classroom teachers, Ms.
Treadway, second grade; Ms. Fox, fifth grade; Ms. Faustino, first grade; Mr. Almeria,
sixth grade and SWTA representative; and two parent participants, Ms. Godino and Ms.
Moncayo. The DSLT facilitated a strategic process of inquiry in an effort to assist in
making an informed decision regarding the appropriate alternative restructuring
option(s) to be taken. Under No Child Left Behind (NCLB) restructuring means a major
reorganization of a school’s governance structure that:
   •   Makes fundamental reforms, such as significant changes in the school’s staffing
       and governance, to improve student academic achievement in the school,
   •   Has substantial promise to improve student academic achievement and enable
       the school to make AYP as defined by the state’s accountability system; and
   •   Is consistent with state law.

The DSLT carefully studied the five (5) options outlined by the California Department of
Education when a school is in restructuring status. After careful analysis of Berry’s
student achievement data, the DSLT team proposed to implement the following
structural changes that will assist the school in meeting student achievement targets in
accordance with State and Federal goals.
Godfrey Berry School Restructuring Plan
After careful analysis of Berry’s student achievement data and staff surveys, the DSLT
team recommends structural changes that will assist the school in improving teaching
and learning and enhancing student achievement. Specifically, the plan will focus on
strategies designed to meet the following targets:

      Increase the percentage of all students scoring proficient/advanced on the CST
      in English language arts by a minimum of ten percent (10%) school-wide and for
      all subgroups.
      Increase significantly the percentage of students moving out of the Basic level on
      the CST in English language arts and into proficient/advanced levels (minimum
      of 10%).
      Increase the percentage of English language learners who score early advanced
      or advanced on the CELDT exam by a minimum of ten percent (10%).

Replacing Staff
The DSLT recommends retaining the current principal whose tenure at Berry began in
the 2010/2011 school year. Additionally, a new Academic Coach was put in place at
Berry beginning in November of the 2010/2011 school year. After careful analysis of
the data, no other staff changes are recommended. Coaching and support will be
provided for the new leaders.

Restructure English Language Arts Block

In depth review of the CST cluster scores and data from District benchmark
assessments indicates that students need to demonstrate higher levels of learning in
word analysis and vocabulary development, reading comprehension and literacy
response and analysis. In reviewing the current language arts block for each grade-
level, it was determined that staff at all grade-levels need to collaboratively redesign
their ELA block of time to include more balanced and challenging language arts
instruction focused on these core components of literacy. In particular, the ELA block of
time needs to include a strong emphasis on non-fiction reading and writing which may
include science and social science texts being incorporated into the language arts
block. Additionally, Berry staff needs to investigate and implement a strong curriculum
component in their ELA block focused on vocabulary and word analysis. The
curriculum should focus on building students’ vocabulary and background knowledge
through both indirect and direct instruction of vocabulary and concepts. Curriculum
should include instruction in word learning strategies that allows students to decipher
the meanings of unknown words they encounter in text. Professional development will
be provided for Berry staff in this area through the use of outside consultants,
professional reading, and on-site coaching. Specifically, teachers will learn to provide
students with instruction that ensures they are ultimately able to independently construct
meaning from a variety of appropriate grade-level texts, including strategies to
   •   build background knowledge, generate questions, analyze text structures, and
       clarify and summarize big ideas;
   •   promote content area vocabulary development;
   •   promote word identification skills;
   •   draw inferences and conclusions, solve complex problems, and support
       arguments with evidence

Focus on Authentic Literacy Throughout the Day

Analysis of current educational research reveals that schools which are successful in
closing the achievement gap for students maintain a focus on building literacy skills
throughout the day and in all content areas. Berry staff will meet in grade-level teams at
least weekly to collaboratively plan lessons that engage students to process content
through speaking and writing that incorporates academic vocabulary. Staff will receive
professional development in how to incorporate reading, writing, and speaking into all
lessons.

Focus on Rigorous Instruction in All Lessons

Berry will expand their use of the Teach for Success instructional protocol to ensure that
all lessons are designed to engage students at high levels. Analysis of the current
Teach for Success data at Berry indicates that while students are regularly engaged in
learning tasks throughout the day, the learning tasks are often at low levels (i.e.
copying, echo responses, worksheet tasks etc.)

Moving students out of Basic levels of performance requires that students are presented
with well-planned lessons that ensure they process information at deep levels and
produce products that require them to summarize, identify similarities and differences,
draw conclusions, make inferences, support arguments with evidence, analyze
information and solve complex problems. Berry staff will collaboratively plan lessons
that incorporate these skills, and they will add to their collaboration time opportunities to
analyze student work products for levels of rigor in order to inform future instruction.

Design and Implement a Comprehensive Plan for Building Vocabulary

Berry staff will work together to investigate and implement the components of a
comprehensive approach to teaching vocabulary throughout the day and in every
lesson. A comprehensive approach will include strategies for students to learn words
both indirectly and through direct instruction. A plan for word study that includes
analysis of word parts and word learning strategies will be incorporated into the
language arts block. Professional development will be provided for staff to assist them
in the planning and implementation of vocabulary instruction throughout the day.

Restructure the English Language Development Block for ELL Students

Staff will build into their planning/professional development schedule opportunities to
analyze the CELDT assessment and unpack the ELD standards. Teacher teams will
work together to collaboratively plan ELD lessons that incorporate all elements of the
rigorous instruction model and integrate the ELD resource appropriately. Staff will work
with the Coordinator of Educational Services to re-design and implement ELD
curriculum specifically targeting students who are at a level three (3) on the CELDT
exam. The school team will investigate and implement an assessment system to
monitor progress of English language learners in their English language development.

An expanded DSLT, including a representative from each grade-level, will meet at least
four times per year to review Berry’s progress on implementation of the Restructuring
Plan and its impact on student achievement.

         George Nicoloff School Restructuring Plan
                       May 10, 2011

Overview
NCLB requires the State and District to review annually the academic progress of
federally funded Title I schools and to identify schools in need of improvement. Nicoloff
Elementary School has been identified as a year four (4) Program Improvement (PI)
school after consecutive years of not making adequate yearly progress (AYP).
California determines AYP by considering the following measures:

   •   The percentage of students scoring at the “proficient” or “advanced” level on the
       California Standards Tests for English-language arts and mathematics
   •   The percentage of students participating in those tests
   •   California’s own accountability measurement of progress, the Academic
       Performance Index (API)

Over the course of the last two years, Nicoloff has made some student achievement
gains in both ELA and mathematics, particularly in the 2008/2009 school year. Since
2008, their API has grown from 654 to 728, and the number of students scoring
advanced/proficient on the CST has increased by 18% in ELA and 16% in
mathematics. Despite this significant growth, Nicoloff Elementary School continues in
PI because it did not achieve AYP in both English Language Arts and mathematics
during the 2009/2010 school year. In addition to missing their targets school-wide,
Nicoloff also did not meet its targets for the Hispanic subgroup in both content areas
and for ELL students in language arts. An examination of the CELDT data also
revealed that Nicoloff has not met its annual objectives for ELL students for two
consecutive years.

Under NCLB, when a school is in restructuring status (Program Improvement years 4
and 5), the LEA (Local Education Agency - South Bay Union School District) must make
intensive and far-reaching interventions to revamp completely the operation and
governance of that school. The South Bay Union School District established a District-
Site Leadership Team (DSLT) to develop a plan for restructuring. Nicoloff’s DSLT is
composed of a variety of individuals with expertise in school reform strategies who are
representative of the school community. The DSLT included: two district level
administrators, Shelley Burgess, Assistant Superintendent of Educational Leadership
and Armida Valencia, Coordinator of Educational Services; site principal, Ruth Frazier
and assistant principal, Bea Carlos; Academic Coach, Dawn Quintero; classroom
teachers, Alfredo Garcia, second grade; Elena Quiroz, fourth grade; Madeline Armenta,
special education; Vangie Martinez, kindergarten and SWTA representative; and a
parent participant, Maria Soto. The DSLT facilitated a strategic process of inquiry in an
effort to assist in making an informed decision regarding the appropriate alternative
restructuring option(s) to be taken. Under No Child Left Behind (NCLB) restructuring
means a major reorganization of a school’s governance structure that:

   •   Makes fundamental reforms, such as significant changes in the school’s staffing
       and governance, to improve student academic achievement in the school,
   •   Has substantial promise to improve student academic achievement and enable
       the school to make AYP as defined by the state’s accountability system; and
   •   Is consistent with state law.

The DSLT carefully studied the five (5) options outlined by the California Department of
Education when a school is in restructuring status. After careful analysis of Nicoloff’s
student achievement data, the DSLT team proposed to implement the following
structural changes that will assist the school in meeting student achievement targets in
accordance with State and Federal goals.
George Nicoloff School Restructuring Plan
After careful analysis of Nicoloff’s student achievement data and staff surveys, the
DSLT team recommends structural changes that will assist the school in improving
teaching and learning and enhancing student achievement. Specifically, the plan will
focus on strategies designed to meet the following targets:

      Increase the percentage of all students scoring proficient/advanced on the CST
      in English language arts and mathematics by a minimum of ten percent (10%)
      school-wide and for all subgroups.
      Increase significantly the percentage of students moving out of the Basic level on
      the CST in English language arts and mathematics into proficient/advanced
      levels (minimum of 10%).
      Increase the percentage of English language learners who score early advanced
      or advanced on the CELDT exam by a minimum of ten percent (10%).

Collaborative Planning and Decision Making
Close examination of the school’s infrastructure reveals the importance of enhancing
grade level collaboration, alter decision-making strategies, and other operational
procedures to enhance the instructional program. Under the direction of the school site
principal, an Instructional Leadership Team (ILT) will be established with
representatives from each grade level for the purpose of monitoring student progress
and working collaboratively to ensure full implementation of the restructuring plan. A
protocol will also be created to guide grade-level collaboration time that includes
analysis of student achievement data, rigorous lesson planning in ELA and mathematics
that include elements of the Teach for Success protocol, analysis of student work and
opportunities to collaborate across grades as well as within the grade-level.

Restructure Language Arts Block and Focus on Authentic Literacy Throughout
the Day
In depth review of the CST cluster scores and data from District benchmark
assessments indicates that students at Nicoloff need higher levels of learning in word
analysis and vocabulary development, reading comprehension and literacy response
and analysis. In reviewing the current language arts block for each grade-level, it was
determined that staff at all grade-levels need to collaboratively redesign their ELA block
of time to include more balanced and challenging language arts instruction focused on
these core components of literacy. In particular, the ELA block of time needs to include
a strong emphasis on non-fiction reading and writing which may include science and
social science texts being incorporated into the language arts block. Additionally,
Nicoloff staff needs to investigate and implement strong supports for their ELL students
in their SEI classrooms. Strategic use of strategies such as preview/review and small
group instruction and a comprehensive focus on language development and vocabulary
development are examples. Professional development will be provided for Nicoloff staff
in this area through the use of an outside consultant, professional reading, and on-site
coaching. Specifically, teachers will learn to provide students with instruction that
ensures they are ultimately able to independently construct meaning from a variety of
appropriate grade-level texts, including strategies to

   •   build background knowledge, generate questions, analyze text structures, and
       clarify and summarize big ideas;
   •   promote content area vocabulary development;
   •   promote word identification skills;
   •   build reading fluency;
   •   understand how, why, when, and where to use a repertoire of comprehension
       strategies.
   •   draw inferences and conclusions, solve complex problems, and support
       arguments with evidence

Analysis of current educational research also reveals that schools which are successful
in closing the achievement gap for students maintain a focus on building higher order
literacy skills throughout the day and in all content areas. Nicoloff staff will meet in
grade-level teams at least weekly to collaboratively plan lessons that engage students
to process content through speaking and writing that incorporates academic vocabulary.
Staff will receive professional development in how to incorporate reading, writing, and
speaking into all lessons, including mathematics.

Restructure the English Language Development Block for ELL Students that
Includes Ongoing Assessment and Monitoring of Student Progress

Nicoloff staff will build into their planning/professional development schedule
opportunities to analyze the CELDT assessment and unpack the ELD standards.
Teacher teams will work together to collaboratively plan ELD lessons that incorporate all
elements of the rigorous instruction model and integrate the ELD resource
appropriately. Staff will work with the Coordinator of Educational Services to re-design
and implement ELD curriculum specifically targeting students who are at a level three
on the CELDT exam. The school team will investigate and implement an assessment
system to monitor progress of English language learners in their English language
development.

Design and Implement a Response to Intervention Model

While Nicoloff has some systems in place to intervene for students who are not meeting
standards, there is a need to fully define and implement a cohesive response to
intervention model. The model will clearly articulate what intervention looks like at the
classroom level, the grade-level team level, the school level, and the system level to
support all students with the right types of instruction to meet grade-level standards. A
monitoring system for students receiving intervention will be established and
implemented so decisions about student intervention can be made on a timely basis.
Interventions may extend beyond the school day.

Develop a System of Culturally Responsive Pedagogy
In partnership with parents, the Nicoloff community will work collaboratively to establish
a culture that respects cultural differences in students, families, and staff. They will
work together to develop a collective sense of efficacy and a set of practices that
demonstrate high expectations for all students and a belief that all students are capable
of learning at high levels.

Development of Site Leadership to be Highly Effective Instructional Leaders

School leadership has a dramatic impact on student achievement, and highly effective
site leaders have a set of skills which establish them as instructional leaders at their
site. Coaching and support from an outside consultant will be provided for the site
principal and assistant principal to develop their skills in instructional leadership.
Coaching will include but will not be limited to: a focus on classroom observations and
providing highly effective feedback to teachers, facilitating powerful grade-level
collaboration, collaborative decision making processes and building a culture of high
expectations.

Replacing Staff

After careful consideration and a thorough examination of student achievement data
and analysis of school culture, it has been determined that some members of the
Nicoloff staff will be placed at another school site. The Assistant Superintendent of
Educational Leadership will work closely with the Human Resources department and
local bargaining organization in this process. The “administrative transfer” will be the
mechanism used to move staff from Nicoloff Elementary School. This mechanism is
clearly defined in section 9.5 of the contract agreement between SBUSD and SWTA.
This section defines administrative transfers as serving the best interests of the District,
as determined by the Superintendent. “Best interests of the District” includes, but is not
limited to, the following factors: working relationships, the health and welfare of
students and unit members, enrollment conditions, instructional requirements, and
specific staff needs.

          Howard Pence School Restructuring Plan
                      May 10, 2011

Overview
NCLB requires the state and district to review annually the academic progress of
federally funded Title I schools and to identify schools in need of improvement. Pence
Elementary School has been identified as a year 4 Program Improvement (PI) school
after consecutive years of not making adequate yearly progress (AYP). California
determines AYP by considering the following measures:

   •   The percentage of students scoring at the “proficient” or “advanced” level on the
       California Standards Tests for English-language arts and mathematics
   •   The percentage of students participating in those tests
   •   California’s own accountability measurement of progress, the Academic
       Performance Index (API)

Over the course of the last three years, Pence has made steady growth in both ELA and
mathematics. Since 2008, their API has grown from 702 to 781, and the number of
students scoring advanced/proficient on the CST has increased by 16% in ELA and
26% in mathematics. Despite this significant growth, Pence Elementary School
continues in PI because it did not achieve AYP in the area of English Language Arts,
and with the new AYP calculations they also just fell short of the target in mathematics
for English language learners.

Under NCLB, when a school is in restructuring status (Program Improvement years 4
and 5), the LEA (Local Education Agency - South Bay Union School District) must make
intensive and far-reaching interventions to revamp completely the operation and
governance of that school. The South Bay Union School District established a District-
Site Leadership Team (DSLT) to develop a plan for restructuring. Pence’s DSLT is
composed of a variety of individuals with expertise in school reform strategies who are
representative of the school community. The DSLT included: two district level
administrators, Shelley Burgess, Assistant Superintendent of Educational Leadership
and Armida Valencia, Coordinator of Educational Services; site principal, Bob Daily;
Academic Coach, Celeste Flores; classroom teachers, Faustino Gutierrez, sixth grade ,
Nic Gentilella, second grade SWTA representative, Rosa Bracamontes, kindergarten;
and a parent, Gloria Preciado. The DSLT facilitated a strategic process of inquiry in an
effort to assist in making an informed decision regarding the appropriate alternative
restructuring option(s) to be taken. Under No Child Left Behind (NCLB) restructuring
means a major reorganization of a school’s governance structure that:
   •   Makes fundamental reforms, such as significant changes in the school’s staffing
       and governance, to improve student academic achievement in the school,
   •   Has substantial promise to improve student academic achievement and enable
       the school to make AYP as defined by the state’s accountability system; and
   •   Is consistent with state law.

The DSLT carefully studied the five (5) options outlined by the California Department of
Education when a school is in restructuring status. After careful analysis of Pence’s
student achievement data, the DSLT team proposed to implement the following five
structural changes. that will assist the school in meeting student achievement targets in
accordance with State and Federal goals.
Howard Pence Restructuring Plan
After careful analysis of Pence’s student achievement data and staff surveys, the DSLT
team recommends structural changes that will assist the school in improving teaching
and learning and enhancing student achievement. Specifically, the plan will focus on
strategies designed to meet the following targets:

       Increase the percentage of all students scoring proficient/advanced on the CST
       in English language arts by a minimum of ten percent (10%).
       Increase the percentage of students identified as socio-economically
       disadvantaged scoring proficient/advanced on the CST in English language arts
       by a minimum of fifteen percent (15%) to begin to close the achievement gap for
       this group of students.
       Increase significantly the percentage of students moving out of the Basic level on
       the CST in English language arts and into proficient/advanced levels (minimum
       of 10%)

The DSLT recommends retaining the current principal whose tenure at Pence began in
the 2009/2010 school year. The team also recommends the establishment of an
Instructional Leadership Team with representation from every grade-level to work jointly
with District personnel to monitor the implementation of the restructuring plan.
Additionally, five key leverage strategies are recommended and outlined below to
ensure the above student achievement targets are met on an annual basis.

Restructure English Language Arts Block

In depth review of the CST cluster scores and data from District benchmark
assessments indicates that students need higher levels of learning in word analysis and
vocabulary development, reading comprehension and literacy response and analysis.
In reviewing the current language arts block for each grade-level, it was determined that
staff at all grade-levels need to collaboratively redesign their ELA block of time to
include more balanced and challenging language arts instruction focused on these core
components of literacy. In particular, the ELA block of time needs to include a strong
emphasis on non-fiction reading and writing which may include science and social
science texts being incorporated into the language arts block. Additionally, Pence staff
need to investigate and implement a strong curriculum component in their ELA block
focused on vocabulary and word analysis. The curriculum should focus on building
students’ vocabulary and background knowledge through both indirect and direct
instruction of vocabulary and concepts and include instruction in word learning
strategies that allow students to decipher the meanings of unknown words they
encounter in text. Professional development will be provided for Pence staff in this area
through the use of outside consultants, professional reading, and on-site coaching.
Specifically, teachers will learn to provide students with instruction that ensures they are
ultimately able to independently construct meaning from a variety of appropriate grade-
level texts, including strategies to
   •   build background knowledge, generate questions, analyze text structures, and
       clarify and summarize big ideas;
   •   promote content area vocabulary development;
   •   promote word identification skills;
   •   understand how, why, when, and where to use a repertoire of comprehension
       strategies.
   •   draw inferences and conclusions, solve complex problems, and support
       arguments with evidence




Focus on Authentic Literacy Throughout the Day

Analysis of current educational research reveals that schools which are successful in
closing the achievement gap for students maintain a focus on building literacy skills
throughout the day and in all content areas. Pence staff will meet in grade-level teams
at least weekly to collaboratively plan lessons that engage students to process content
through speaking and writing that incorporates academic vocabulary. Staff will receive
professional development in how to incorporate reading, writing, and speaking into all
lessons.

Focus on Rigorous Instruction in All Lessons

Pence will expand their use of the Teach for Success instructional protocol to ensure
that all lessons are designed to engage students at high levels. Analysis of the current
Teach for Success data at Pence indicates that while students are regularly engaged in
learning tasks throughout the day, the learning tasks are often at low levels (i.e.
copying, echo responses, worksheet tasks etc.)

Moving students out of Basic levels of performance requires that students are presented
with well-planned lessons that ensure they process information at deep levels and
produce products that require them to summarize, identify similarities and differences,
draw conclusions, make inferences, support arguments with evidence, analyze
information and solve complex problems. Pence staff will collaboratively plan lessons
that incorporate these skills, and they will add to their collaboration time opportunities to
analyze student work products for levels of rigor in order to inform future instruction.

Design and Implement a Response to Intervention Model

While Pence has some systems in place to intervene for students who are not meeting
standards, there is a need to fully define and implement a cohesive response to
intervention model. The model will clearly articulate what intervention looks like at the
classroom level, the grade-level team level, the school level, and the system level to
support all students with the right types of instruction to meet grade-level standards. A
monitoring system for students receiving intervention will be established and
implemented so decisions about student intervention can be made on a timely basis.

Establish a Culture of High Expectations for All Students

During the 2010/2011 school year, Pence began to implement components of the “No
Excuses University” model as a way to establish high expectations for all students and
create a college-bound culture. Pence will continue to strengthen their use of the No
Excuses University model and will put all components in place. They will complete and
submit their application to be recognized as the first No Excuses University school in the
South County.

FROM:         Kim Phifer, Assistant Superintendent, Human Resources & Org Development

SUBJECT:      Resolution 11-131 Implementing Certificated Layoff – Acting upon proposed
              decision of the Administrative Law Judge; Terminating services of particular
              Certificated employees as a result of discontinuances and reductions of particular
              kinds of Certificated services; Providing direction to issue notifications to
              employees whose services are terminated; and related actions


BACKGROUND INFORMATION
On March 3, 2011 the Board adopted Resolution 11-115 regarding discontinuances and
reductions of particular kinds of certificated services. Education Code 44955, subdivision (c)
requires Board action and notices of termination of services resulting from such Resolutions be
given no later than May 14, 2011, although that date is extended if a continuance has been
granted in accordance with Education Code section 44949, subdivision (e).

CURRENT CONSIDERATIONS
An evidentiary hearing before an Administrative Law Judge took place on Wednesday, April 27,
2011. The Administrative Law Judge is responsible to provide a recommendation (TBA – Still to
come – Look for May 9, 2011 Addendum) to the Board regarding her findings with regard to the
District's adopted Resolution 11-115 regarding discontinuances and reductions of particular
kinds of certificated services. Therefore, it is necessary to complete the certificated layoff
process via the Board approving the layoff of particular employees so that formal notices of
layoff can be forwarded before the statutory deadline of May 14th. Resolution 11-131 (Draft
Exhibit C) reflects the District's administrative recommendation based on the predicted findings
of the Administrative Law Judge.

IMPLACT ON STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
These reductions will affect the full implementation of services and academic programs provided
to the students of South Bay Union School District.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
Financial implications associated with this layoff action will include legal fees associated with
processing notices, and legal fees for Administrative Law Judge services.

RECOMMENDATION
It is respectfully requested that the Superintendent recommend adoption of Resolution 11-131
implementing certificated layoff - Acting upon proposed decision of the Administrative Law
Judge; Terminating services of particular Certificated employees as a result of discontinuances
and reductions of particular kinds of Certificated services; Providing direction to issue
notifications to employees whose services are terminated; and related actions.
SUPERINTENDENT’S RECOMMENDATION
Recommend adoption.




 NOTE:     As this proposed Resolution is included in the packet
   for the Board meeting of May 10, 2011, the opinion of the
    Administrative Law Judge who will be issuing a proposed
      decision is not yet available. The following is not the
  preconceived nor predetermined decision of the Governing
  Board nor the final, unchangeable recommendation of the
  administration, and therefore is subject to significant change
   depending upon at least the opinion and analysis of that
                    Administrative Law Judge.

(1) It is confirmed and determined that each is not subject to the certificated layoff process for at
least the reasons of their legal status as a temporary employee, their employment agreements
designating each as a temporary employee, the expiration of each’s agreed upon employment
contract, and/or their release from employment by this Governing Board as per Resolution
Number 11-116 based in part upon and in reliance of each’s employment agreement.

(2) As a precaution out of an abundance of caution, and consistent with their being considered on
a precautionary basis, this Board continues to treat each on a precautionary basis and
accordingly directs each to receive a precautionary notice of layoff; no additional rights not
otherwise required by law are granted by this Board decision and action.

(3) Nothing within this Resolution gives rights to any of the above-identified employees who
receive(d) precautionary notices, beyond those rights otherwise required by law, nor does each’s
inclusion in this current Resolution nullify or supersede any prior notice of release and non-
reelection. All prior Board actions relating to release and non-reelection of the employees
notified on a precautionary basis are reaffirmed and nothing within this current Resolution grants
rights beyond those actions nor nullifies any prior actions taken by this Board. It is the intent
and conclusion of this Board that even if the employees notified on a precautionary basis were
entitled to participate in the layoff process (which is not conceded), the releases and non-
        reelections remain in effect and reemployment rights which might exist within the layoff process
        are not applicable to any employee notified on a precautionary basis.

        (4) As to any of those employees listed above who were previously laid off from certificated
        employment in this school district, inclusion within this Resolution is not intended to grant those
        individuals who are impacted any rights greater than provided by law nor to expand the pre-
        existing rights to reemployment as contained in Education Code sections 44956 (permanent) and
        44957 (probationary).

        (5) The employment of each of the above named employees who receive(d) notices on
        a precautionary basis is terminated effective upon the close of this school year, i.e., the
        end of the last working day as to each employee on or prior to June 30, 2011 or upon
        the expiration of any temporary contract, whichever occurs earlier;
  BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that these decisions are effective immediately and that the
Superintendent or the Superintendent’s designee(s) take such actions as are necessary and
appropriate to implement these decisions, including at least giving appropriate notices to those
certificated employees referenced or listed above of the termination of their services, with
those notices being given in the manner prescribed by law.
IN WITNESS OF the adoption of the foregoing Resolution we, the members present and voting
thereon, have hereunto set our hands the 10th day of May, 2011, at a duly scheduled meeting
held in Imperial Beach, San Diego County, California.

Resolution duly adopted by said Board at a duly scheduled meeting thereof.

Date:

                                          May 10, 2011


TO:           Carol Parish, Ed.D., District Superintendent

FROM:         Kimberly Phifer, Assistant Superintendent, Human Resources and Organizational
              Development

SUBJECT:      Resolution 11-129 regarding the Elimination and Reduction in Hours and/or Work
              Year of Classified Positions: Administrative Secretary, Custodian, Bilingual
              Instructional Assistant, Duplicating Operator III, Educational Services Liaison,
              Head Custodian, Instructional Assistant, Library Media Technician, Office
              Assistant, Maintenance Painter, Storekeeper, and Supervision Assistant;
              Corresponding Layoff of Classified Employees and the Elimination and
              Reduction in Hours and/or Work Year of Classified Employees.


BACKGROUND INFORMATION
On February 10, 2011, the Board of Trustees approved the elimination and reduction in hours
and/or work year of classified positions. Based on the fact that schools and departments are
experiencing significant cuts, they no longer have sufficient funding to continue to support
some classified positions. As a result, it is necessary to eliminate eighteen (18) classified
positions and reduce the work hours and/or work year of twenty-one (21) classified positions.

CURRENT CONSIDERATIONS
Resolution 11-129 (Exhibit D), details the elimination and/or the reduction in work hours and
work days. Eighteen (18) classified positions will be eliminated and twenty-one (21) classified
positions will be reduced in work hours and/or work year, effective June 30, 2011. With regard
to any classified elimination or reduction in work hours and/or work year, the public school
employer must adhere to applicable Education Code Sections, applicable Board policies, and
applicable sections of the collective bargaining agreement.

Pursuant to Education Code Sections 45117, 45298, and 45308 (Exhibit E), classified
employees may have a reduction in their work hours/year due to lack of funds or lack of work.
The term “lack of funds” does not require that the employer be bankrupt or financially unable to
pay salaries. A “lack of funds” may occur when the Board of Trustees determines to reduce or
eliminate services.


Because a layoff is not a disciplinary action, classified employees are not entitled to a hearing
prior to the Board taking action to eliminate or reduce positions.
Unit members who are designated for a reduction in work year or work hours may exercise
displacement or bumping rights into any equal or lower classification which he or she currently
holds or into a classification previously regularly held within the District providing that they
meet minimum qualifications and providing that the classification into which they are bumping
is equal or lower than the classification from which the employee is being laid off. An employee
possessing bumping rights, need not exercise those rights; and an employee who elects to
accept a reduced work year in lieu of displacement or bumping maintains his or her 39-month
reemployment rights should the longer work year be reestablished. Employees who are
subject to a work year/work hour reduction are eligible for reemployment in a longer work
year/work hour for a 39-month period from the effective date of the work year/work hour
reduction, and shall be re-employed in the longer work year/work hour in reverse order of
work year/work hour reductions.

Should the Board of Trustees adopt Resolution 11-129, the affected employees must be given
a minimum of 45 days notice of such action prior to the effective date. The effective date of the
reduced work year/work hour reduction proposed in Resolution 11-129 is effective the end of
the business day on June 30, 2011. The employees must also be given notice of
reemployment rights and other rights provided by Education Code Sections 45117, 45298, and
45308, and any rights provided by Board Policy and the collective bargaining agreement with
CSEA, Chapter 59.

Section 21.7 of the Agreement between CSEA, Chapter 59 and the Board of Trustees, South
Bay Union School District provides that the current Article 21 – LAYOFFS, REEMPLOYMENT,
VOLUNTARY REDUCTION IN HOURS IN LIEU OF LAYOFF, VOLUNTARY DEMOTION IN
LIEU OF LAYOFF AND THE IMPACTS AND EFFECTS OF ALL THOSE MATTERS
represents the complete settlement of all issues related to layoffs, reemployment, voluntary
demotions in lieu of layoff and the impacts and effects of all those matters.

The adoption of this resolution will result in the elimination or reduction of work hours and/or
work year of thirty-nine (39) classified employees.

IMPACT ON STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
The above reductions will have a negative impact on the support of teaching and learning in
our schools. These reductions will affect the full implementation of services and academic
programs provided to the students of South Bay Union School District.

FINANCIAL CONSIDERATIONS
The following classified positions will be eliminated:


    A.    Bilingual Instructional Assistant              (9) nine positions of 3.75 hours per day

    B.    Custodian                                      (2) two positions of 8.0 hours per day

    C.    Educational Services Liaison                   (1) one position of 8.0 hours per day

    D.    Head Custodian                                 (1) one position of 8.0 hours per day
    E.   Instructional Assistant                   (4) four positions of 3.75 hours per day

    F.   Supervision Assistant                     (1) position of .75 hours per day




The work hours and/or work year for the following classified positions would be reduced:


    A.   Administrative Secretary                  (1) one position of 8.0 hours per day to 6.0
                                                   hours per day

    B.   Duplicating Operator III                  (1) one position of 8.0 hours per day to 7.5

    C.   Library Media Technician                  (3) positions of 40 hours per week to 12.5
                                                   hours per week

                                                   (1) position of 35 hours per week to 12.5
                                                   hours per week

                                                   (7) seven positions of 25 hours per week to
                                                   12.5 hours per week

    D.   Office Assistant                          (3) positions of 8.0 hours per day and 190
                                                   days per year to 3.75 hours per day and
                                                   175 days per year

    E.   Maintenance Painter                       (1) one position of 8.0 hours per day to 6.0

    F.   Storekeeper                               (1) one position of 8.0 hours per day to 7.5

BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE

Approval:                                    Dissenting:




                                             Abstaining:




Absent:




         I, Carol Parish, Superintendent and Secretary to the Board of Trustees of the South Bay
Union School District of San Diego County, California, do hereby certify that the foregoing is a
full, true, and correct copy of a Resolution duly adopted by said Board at a duly scheduled
meeting thereof, at the time and place and by the vote above stated, which Resolution is on file
and of record in the office of said Board.

DATE: May 10, 2011
                                               Carol Parish, Ed.D.
                                                EXHIBIT E
CALIFORNIA EDUCATION CODE
45117.
(a) When, as a result of the expiration of a specially funded program, classified positions must be
eliminated at the end of any school year, and classified employees will be subject to layoff for lack of
funds, the employees to be laid off at the end of the school year shall be given written notice on or
before May 29 informing them of their layoff effective at the end of he school year and of their
displacement rights, if any, and reemployment rights. However, if the termination date of any specially
funded program is other than June 30, the notice shall be given not less than 45 days prior to the
effective date of their layoff.
(b) When, as a result of a bona fide reduction or elimination of the service being performed by any
department, classified employees shall be subject to layoff for lack of work, affected employees shall be
given notice of layoff not less than 45 days prior to the effective date of layoff, and informed of their
displacement rights, if any, and reemployment rights.

45298.
Persons laid off because of lack of work or lack of funds are eligible to reemployment for a period of 39
months and shall be reemployed in preference to new applicants. In addition, such persons laid off
have the right to participate in promotional examinations within the district during the period of 39
months.

Employees who take voluntary demotions or voluntary reductions in assigned time in lieu of layoff or to
remain in their present positions rather than be reclassified or reassigned, shall be granted the same
rights as persons laid off and shall retain eligibility to be considered for reemployment for an additional
period of up to 24 months; provided, that the same tests of fitness under which they qualified for
appointment to the class shall still apply. The personnel commission shall make the determination of
the specific period eligibility for reemployment on a class-by-class basis.

Employees who take voluntary demotions or voluntary reductions in assigned time in lieu of layoff shall
be, at the option of the employee, returned to a position in their former class or to positions with
increased assigned time as vacancies become available, and without limitation of time, but if there is a
valid reemployment list they shall be ranked on that list in accordance with their proper seniority.

45308.
Classified employees shall be subject to layoff for lack of work or lack of funds. Whenever a classified
employee is laid off, the order of layoff within the class shall be determined by length of service. The
employee who has been employed the shortest time in the class, plus higher classes, shall be laid off
first. Reemployment shall be in the reverse order of layoff.

For purposes of this section, in school districts with an average daily attendance below 400,000, for
service commencing or continuing after July 1, 1971, “length of service” means all hours in paid status,
whether during the school year, a holiday, recess, or during any period that a school is in session or
closed, but does not include any hours compensated solely on an overtime basis as provided for in
Section 45128. Nothing in this section shall preclude the governing board of a school district from
entering into an agreement with the exclusive representative of the classified employees that defines
“length of service” to mean the hire date.

If a governing board enters into an agreement with the exclusive representative of classified employees
that defines “length of service” to mean the hire date, the governing board may define “length of
service” to mean the hire date for a classification of employee not represented by any exclusive
bargaining unit.
Nothing contained in this section shall preclude the granting of “length of service” credit for time spent on unpaid
illness leave, unpaid maternity leave, unpaid family care leave, or unpaid industrial accident leave. In addition,
for military leave of absence, “length of service” credit shall be granted pursuant to Section 45297. In the event
an employee returned to work following any other unpaid leave of absence, no further seniority shall be accrued
for the time not worked. “Hours in paid status” shall not be interpreted to mean any service performed prior to
entering into a probationary or permanent status in the classified service of the district except service in restricted
positions as provided in this chapter.

9. DISCUSSION/ACTION ITEMS:
   • Resolution 11-120
     Assistant Superintendent Scott Buxbaum described the purpose and process related
     to Tax and Revenue Anticipation Notes (TRANS). He detailed the timeline and
     estimated costs related to the TRANS. He discussed the ongoing state deferrals that
     necessitate a TRANS to solve possible short-term flow cash issues. He concluded
     with a request that the Board adopt Resolution 11-120.

       Trustee Inzunza asked how we can guarantee that the TRANS can be repaid given the
       “beyond the worst scenario” funding and the ongoing deferrals from the state. Mr.
       Buxbaum stated that the District’s fund balance and other funds can be used for
       repayment. The anticipated return of property taxes may also be used as a guarantee
       of payment. He indicated that lenders are becoming more cautious about lending
       money. He stated that as school districts become more financially stretched, there
       could be problems with investors being willing to loan money.

       Trustee Brown asked how much money the District might have to borrow. Mr.
       Buxbaum indicated that Resolution 11-120 includes a request for $5 million. Trustee
       Brown asked what the interest rate would be. Mr. Buxbaum stated that the interest
       rate is not set until the request for lenders is concluded. He estimated that it would be
       approximately 1.5% for one year. Trustee Brown asked when the first repayment date
       would be. Mr. Buxbaum stated that it would likely be sometime in June. Trustee
       Brown asked what would happen if the District borrowed the money but were unable
       to repay it. Mr. Buxbaum responded that another TRANS would have to be pursued
       should the District not have the funds to repay the loan. Trustee Brown asked if that
       would be possible. Mr. Buxbaum described the process, including the likelihood that
       other districts would participate in the loan.

       Trustee Inzunza asked about the District’s current reserve amount and if the reserve
       could be used. Mr. Buxbaum indicated that the District’s reserve may not represent
       cash because of the deferrals and may not be available to repay the TRANS.

       Motion by Trustee Ellsworth, Second by Trustee Inzunza to adopt Resolution 11-120
       authorizing the borrowing of funds for the 2011-12 fiscal year and issuance and sale of
       the 2011 Tax and Revenue Anticipation Notes (TRANS). Vote on Motion: Ayes-Trustees

       Carried.
  • District Calendar
    Assistant Superintendent Kim Phifer described the proposed calendar for the 2011-12
    school year. She recalled that the District had been focused on aligning our calendar
    with that of Sweetwater Unified School District. She described the calendar committee
    and the work that had been done to consider holidays, furlough days, and start dates.
    She also presented the proposed start dates for subsequent school years.

      Motion by Trustee Aguilar, Second by Trustee Inzunza to approve the District calendar

announced that the District is anticipating a finding by the review panel regarding the
teaching of students by Instructional Assistants and the related requirement that all
direct instruction be done by a highly qualified teacher. The District’s current process
with regard to Instructional Assistants may not be in compliance with Categorical
Program requirements. Ms. Burgess indicated that regardless of any potential findings
from the CPM review panel, the issue before the Board is whether the Site Plans were
developed in compliance with the agreed upon process, and that the plans support the
District’s student achievement goals.

Trustee Brown asked for clarification on the Instructional Assistant issue. Specifically,
she asked if No Child Left Behind and the related federal funding was the reason for the
potential finding. Ms. Burgess quoted the Education Code and the definitions of “highly
qualified teacher” and “direct supervision.” She indicated that the issue would have to
be further researched. Dr. Parish added that if Trustee Brown’s question was whether
or not the CPM review panel had the authority to interpret federal guidelines and instruct
the District on how to instruct, the answer is yes.

Trustee Brown summarized that if the District does not comply with the CPM review
panel’s findings, then the District would be in non-compliance. Ms. Burgess stated that
non-compliance could result in a loss of funding to the District. Trustee Lopez asked if
the District would need to do some restructuring based on the findings, and if any
restructuring was reflected in the Site plans under discussion. Ms. Burgess indicated
that the discussion regarding “direct instruction” had been discussed as part of the
decision making process related to the development of the Site Plans. She indicated
that if the District does receive a formal finding regarding Instructional Assistants, the
sites would need to review the Plans to ensure compliance.

Trustee Inzunza asked President Brown what action was before the Board. Trustee
Brown indicated that the Plans were currently under discussion by the Board. Trustee
Inzunza stated that he had not heard a formal request for approval to table the plans
pending formal findings, or for other specific action. Dr. Parish responded that the
Plans are aligned with the District plan and have been developed in compliance with the
rules for Single Site Councils. She indicated that the administration’s recommendation
to the Board is for approval.

  Motion by Trustee Inzunza, Second by Trustee Aguilar to approve the Single Site Plans
  for Student Achievement for Bayside, Berry, Central, Emory, Imperial Beach, Mendoza,
  Nestor, Nicoloff, Oneonta, Pence, and Sunnyslope schools for the 2011-12 school
  year.

Trustee Brown voiced her reluctance to approve the plans, but understands the
compliance issues. Trustee Aguilar agreed that it is important that the District be in
compliance with federal rules.
      Beth Gillen quoted Board Policy regarding para-professionals and their duties with
      regard to supervision of students. She indicated that approval of the Site Plans will
      result in the elimination of 13 instructional aide positions – a total of 184 years of
      experience and dedication to the District and students. She indicated that the potential
      findings described by Ms. Burgess may be the result of how the instructional assistants
      answered the panel’s questions. She described the limited resources of all the sites and
      the increased cost of impact teachers. She recommended that the District consider
      rethinking how services are offered to see if additional training might result in increased
      benefits for our students.

        Vote on Motion: Ayes-Trustees Aguilar, Brown, Ellsworth, Inzunza, and Lopez; Noes-
        none; Absent-none. Motion Carried.

   11. ADJOURNMENT:
       The Regular Board Meeting was adjourned at 7:15 p.m.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION
From time to time and as necessary, Board Bylaws (BB), Board Policies (BP), and

   •   The addition of a use for “a ceremony, patriotic celebration, or related educational
       assembly conducted by a veterans’ organization.”

An update to AR 1330 (Exhibit F) to include the items recommended above, would further
define and expand the use of school facilities by citizens and community groups.


IMPACT ON STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
There are no impacts on student achievement related to this item.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

SUBJECT:      Resolution 11-125 authorizing the Replacement of Warrants for the Fiscal Year
              2011-12


BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Government Code Section 29802 and Education Code Section 42661 provide that any school
warrant not presented to the County Treasurer within six months after it was issued is void.
Any time within two years from the date the original warrant became void, or the payroll and/or

the school district to adopt an order instructing the County Auditor to draw a new warrant in
favor of the payee in the same amount as the original warrant.

CURRENT CONSIDERATIONS
The attached Resolution 11-125 (Exhibit H) gives the Superintendent, the Assistant
Superintendents, or the Director of Fiscal Services the authority to request that the County
Auditor reissue warrants that are void due to age. Authority provided by this resolution will
remain in effect throughout Fiscal Year 2011-12.

IMPACT ON STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
This resolution provides an efficient process of issuing replacement warrants, so that staff
members can maximize quality instruction.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
There are no financial implications related to this action.

RECOMMENDATION

as presented.

TO:           Carol Parish, Ed.D., District Superintendent

FROM:         Scott Buxbaum, Assistant Superintendent, Business Services

SUBJECT:      Adoption of Resolution 11-128 Regarding Approval to Delegate Power to
              Contract to the Superintendent or Designee of the South Bay Union School
              District


BACKGROUND INFORMATION
In Board Policy 3312, Education Code 17604 states that whenever the state law invests the
Governing Board with the power to enter into contracts on behalf of the District, the Board
may, by majority vote, delegate this power to the Superintendent or designee. To be valid or to
constitute an enforceable obligation against the District, all contracts must be approved and/or
ratified by the Board.

CURRENT CONSIDERATIONS
Approval of this Resolution (Exhibit I) will formally delegate the power to contract to the
Superintendent. The Superintendent, in turn, will designate certain District staff by position to
enter into contracts as set forth in the Resolution.

As stated in District Policy 3312 and Education Code 17604, no contract made pursuant to this
delegation and authorization will be enforceable until such contract is approved and/or ratified
by the Governing Board.

This authority to enter into contracts prior to Board approval and/or ratification would be used
only in a limited capacity when timelines for signature do not align with Board meeting dates.
The primary use will be with the contracts in regards to E-Rate. Due to the tight timelines
between issuing proposals in December, getting bids back in January and submitting these to
the School and Libraries Division (SLD) prior to the early February deadline, the ability to have
Board approval first prior to signing the contracts is not possible. This authority would allow the
District to sign these contracts and submit them in a timely fashion to the SLD, while at the
same time giving the Governing Board the ultimate authority to not ratify them if they so desire.

IMPACT ON STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
This Resolution ensures that the District meets current laws and regulations in order to
conduct the business of the District.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
There are no financial implications related to this item at this time.       All agreements and
contracts executed by District staff are subject to board approval.
RECOMMENDATION
It is respectfully requested that the Superintendent recommend adoption of Resolution 11-128
as presented.


SUPERINTENDENT’S RECOMMENDATION
Recommend adoption.

VIA:         Arlene Mitchell, Director, Fiscal Services

SUBJECT:     Resolution 11-130 requesting a Temporary Transfer of Funds


BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Some school districts incur cash flow problems associated with district operations between
July and November of each fiscal year. Should a cash flow emergency occur, a temporary
transfer of funds can be made available by the County Treasurer’s Office if a resolution
approved by the Board of Trustees requesting such transfer has been filed by the District. In
accordance with provisions of the California Constitution and Education Code, school districts
are advised to submit a resolution approved by the Governing Board that would allow a
temporary transfer of funds from the County Treasurer if the need for such a loan would occur
during the upcoming year.

CURRENT CONSIDERATIONS
While the District has never found it necessary to borrow from the County Treasurer, a
Resolution by the Board of Trustees (Exhibit J) should be adopted to enable the District to
obtain a temporary transfer of funds, should we encounter an emergency cash shortage during
the 2011-12 fiscal year. Any temporary funds advanced must be repaid to the County
Treasurer’s Office with interest from 2011-12 taxes accruing to a district before other
obligations of the District are met.

IMPACT ON STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
This resolution provides a contingency for borrowing of funds, so the District may operate in an
efficient manner in order to support staff members to focus on student achievement.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
If it were necessary for the District to request a temporary transfer of funds, the funds
transferred by the County Treasurer would be repaid with interest from taxes accruing to the
District. The County Auditor will charge the current rate of interest on any amounts
transferred. However, the need for such a transfer is not anticipated during the upcoming
year.

RECOMMENDATION
It is respectfully requested that the Superintendent recommend adoption of Resolution 11-130
as presented.

temporary transfer of funds shall not exceed 85% of taxes accruing to the district, shall not be made
prior to the first day of the fiscal year nor after the last Monday in April of the current fiscal year, and
shall be replaced from the taxes accruing to such district before any other obligation of the district is

and

WHEREAS, taxes accrued to this district during the 2010-11 fiscal year were $7,472,011; and

       1.      The Board of Supervisors of the County of San Diego is requested to direct the Treasurer of
               the County of San Diego to make a temporary transfer from the funds in his custody to this

TO:           Carol Parish, Ed.D., District Superintendent

FROM:         Scott Buxbaum, Assistant Superintendent, Business Services

SUBJECT:      Approve a One-Year Agreement with Coronado Unified School District to
              Operate School Bus Service


BACKGROUND
Over the last seven years Coronado Unified School District (CUSD) has contracted with South Bay
Union School District (SBUSD) to operate CUSD school bus service.

CURRENT CONSIDERATIONS
After extensive and careful analysis, Transportation Director Jeannette Ford has determined that it
is practicable for SBUSD to continue to provide bus service for CUSD by using CUSD buses. In the
proposed configuration, SBUSD would hire, dispatch, and supervise drivers, who would use as
many as six (6) buses that are owned or leased by CUSD. In addition, SBUSD would house and
provide maintenance and repair services for CUSD’s buses. Two incentives would be realized by
SBUSD: (1) the number of drivers would be maintained at the present level; (2) SBUSD would
realize a net profit, after all costs are paid by CUSD, of at least $65,000.00 for the year. Further, it
has been determined that department management, dispatching, and maintenance/repair would not
need to be increased to absorb the work load.

A proposed contract has been drafted by administrators of the two districts and is attached as
Exhibit ?. Important provisions of the proposed contract include:

1. A one-year term from July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012. Option to extend contract term for an
   additional period of one (1) year from July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013.
2. South Bay Union School District would operate up to six (6) routes and provide up to five (5) bus
   drivers, as appropriate and needed to meet CUSD needs.
3. A cancellation provision of 90 days, if cancellation before the expiration date was to be
   necessary. Thus, CUSD would have three (3) months in which to implement replacement
   service.
4. The appropriate legal requirements and insurance and indemnification provisions.
5. SBUSD would establish and operate bus routes and stops, using CUSD existing configuration
   as the basis.
6. SBUSD would hire, supervise, and assign the bus drivers to provide the service. Up to two
   current drivers would remain in the employ of CUSD and would be dispatched by SBUSD. Thus,
   the number of SBUSD drivers may be fewer than five (5), even if six (6) routes are operated.
7. Maintain and repair CUSD bus fleet.
8. Operate field trips insofar as practicable to meet CUSD needs, chiefly for high school athletics.



                                                 lxxiii
9. Coronado Unified School District would pay SBUSD monthly for all costs and services provided
    in the preceding month, based on rates established in the agreement. The rates are calculated
    to include full cost recovery for consumables and total compensation cost of drivers and other
    staff members, plus “profit” that would amount to at least $65,000.00 if all five (5) bus routes are
    operated for the full year.
10. The customary dispute resolution provision used by school and other government agencies.

If an agreement is approved by the respective Boards SBUSD and CUSD, the agreement would be
implemented on July 1, 2011. If either Board does not approve an agreement, then no service will
be provided.

IMPACT ON STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
Student achievement would be indirectly affected through the decrease of Transportation Services
encroachment on the General Fund. Partial funding earmarked for transportation can be
redistributed to areas as needed.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
Based on our analysis and on the recent experience, SBUSD would realize a profit of at least
$65,000.00 for the operating year, if, as noted, all anticipated routes are operated for the year.
While SBUSD’s profit might be higher, a cautious estimate is presented because the service at this
level may change over the course of the upcoming school year. The proposed agreement is drafted
for a period of only one (1) year, with the option to extend for one additional year, to ensure that
neither district finds itself in an untenable financial situation.

RECOMMENDATION
It is respectfully requested that the Superintendent recommend approval of a one-year agreement
(Exhibit K) between SBUSD and CUSD to operate bus service.


SUPERINTENDENT’S RECOMMENDATION
Recommend approval.

TO:           Carol Parish, Ed.D., District Superintendent

FROM:         Scott Buxbaum, Assistant Superintendent, Business Services

SUBJECT:      Approve Renewal of a One-Year Facilities Lease Agreement with San Diego County
              Superintendent of Schools (Friendship School)


BACKGROUND INFORMATION
In the fall of 2005 administration from the San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE)
approached South Bay Union School District (SBUSD) about the possibility of renting the Education
Center Conference rooms located to the east of Burress Auditorium. The desire was to enter into a
long term lease agreement to host Friendship School, as their current location in National City was
sold as part of a redevelopment plan. Friendship School is a K-12 special education school
currently serving approximately 40 South County students and families. The administration
expressed a need for 5 classrooms, handicapped accessible restrooms and office space for the
principal, office staff and service staff including Occupational Therapist, Speech and Language
Specialist, School Psychologist, Assisted Technology Specialist and School Nurse.

CURRENT CONSIDERATIONS
The San Diego County Office of Education is interested in renewing a one-year lease of 5
training/classrooms (4,886 sq. ft.), corridor (1,517 sq. ft.), storage area (60 sq. ft.), restrooms (389
sq. ft) and offices (767 sq. ft) for 2010-2011. This is a total of 7,619 sq. ft.

The students at Friendship School will continue to receive transportation. The administration is
willing to be flexible with the school start and end times and has indicated they will stay on a year-
round calendar. The current school hours are 9:00 a.m. – 3:07 p.m. and 9:00 a.m. – 1:11 p.m.
(minimum days).

The proposed lease is available for review in the Business Services office.

IMPACT ON STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
This collaboration has an impact on students in our District as well as students in four other south
bay school districts.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
Under the proposed agreement, SBUSD would receive as much as $114,285 in lease income for
the proposed twelve month period of time (7/01/11– 6/30/12).

In addition to lease income noted above, SDCOE will continue to provide and/or absorb costs for:
(1) facility modification (both temporary and permanent) of rooms to meet the needs of students; (2)
restoring the condition of SBUSD’s rooms and leased space at the end of the lease


                                                 lxxx
period; (3) furniture and equipment; (4) phones and technology; (5) food services; (6) laundry
services; (7) a portion of gas and electric; (8) school administration including a principal, office
support and itinerant staff mentioned above.

SBUSD is proposing a rate of $1.25 per sq. ft. and along with space includes custodial support,
cleaning supplies, sewer, water and trash collection. Our approximate net income to the District is
approximately $80,000 - $90,000 for the school year 2011-2012.

RECOMMENDATION
It is respectfully requested that the Superintendent recommend approval of the renewal of a one-
year facilities lease agreement with San Diego County Superintendent of Schools.




SUPERINTENDENT’S RECOMMENDATION
Recommend approval.
