3. RE1 Broadmoor Relocation Assistance Program

Minutes:

     •          On April 11, 2007 the School Board approved the acquisition
           of the 182 unit apartment complex located at 1805 West Blue Heron
           Boulevard., Riviera Beach, containing 8.37 acres.

     •         In order to meet the construction timeline the remaining 99
           occupied units must be vacated by March 31, 2008.

     •         The City of Riviera Beach has committed $100,000.00 and
           other organizations are assisting with the relocation process.

     •        The assistance will be based on need and other government
           income guidelines will be used such as eligibility for vouchers.

     •          Any funds committed by the School Board that are unused
           will revert back to the School District.

     •          Urban League of Palm Beach County, Inc. has agreed to
           assist the School Board with the execution of the fiscal
           responsibilities.

     •          The services of Attorney Elizabeth McBride will be retained
           to assist with developing guidelines and agreements with the
           parties.

     •         District staff will work on guidelines for future acquisitions so
           as not to set an unmanageable and infeasible precedence.


Motions:
I recommend the School Board approve a         -

3. RE-1 Palm Beach Public West Campus
Attachment: Attachment 1.pdf
Attachment: QAPBPublic.doc
Attachment: Palm Beach Public West-Johnson Parish & Edwards
Appraisal.pdf
Minutes:

      In late 2003, the School Board entertained offers to purchase and lease
       the Palm Beach Public West Campus. For various reasons, the School
       Board decided that it did not want to sell the West Campus but it was
       willing to enter into a 25 year lease. (See Attached Lease Agreement
       Attachment "I")
      On January 21, 2004, the School Board directed staff to finalize
       negotiations with the Society of the Four Arts for lease of the Palm
       Beach Public West Campus.
      The 25 year lease has been in effect since March 1, 2006.
      The Society of the Four Arts made an upfront lump-sum payment of
       $500,000.00 and in-kind contributions which includes School use of 35
       parking spaces, educational programs and special events for the
       educational benefit of the students of Palm Beach County.
      The Society of the Four Arts planned to spend an estimated
       $2,000,000.00 for repairs and renovations to the three (3) School
       Buildings on the West Campus, including needed upgrades to make
       the buildings ADA compliant, modernization of the heating, lighting
       and ventilation systems, and improvements to restore and preserve the
       character of the buildings.
      The Society would be more successful raising funds for the renovation
       of the facility if they had the opportunity to purchase the property.
      The existing lease provides that the School Board may not terminate
       the lease during the first fifteen (15) years unless the premises are
       needed for School District instructional programs.
      The lease also provides that the Society of the Four Arts will have a
       Right of First Refusal in the event the School Board decides to sell the
       premises during the lease term.
      If the lease is terminated or the West Campus is sold during the lease
       term, the School Board must refund, or credit, the Society of the Four
       Arts with an amortized amount of the prepaid rent. (See Exhibit "C" to
       the Lease Agreement)
      The newly modernized Palm Beach Public Elementary School
       functions successfully without the West Campus.
      Considering that the three (3) school buildings on the west campus are
       no longer needed and that the age and condition of the buildings
       requires costly renovations, it is recommended that 0.69 acres be
       declared surplus.
      The 2004 average appraised value was $4,200,000.00. The new
       average appraised value is $6,625,000.00.

Board Members exchanged extensive dialogue regarding the lack of parking
spaces at Palm Beach Public.

Minutes:
* This recommendation establishes boundaries for the new West Boynton
Area Elementary School (Fogg) 03-Z, located on Boynton Beach Blvd. at
Acme Dairy Road. The school is under construction and scheduled to open in
August of 2008.
* Boundary Study Z-3 provides the attendance area for the new West
Boynton Area Elementary School 03-Z and provides relief for Discovery Key,
Hagen Road, and Hidden Oaks elementary schools. Additional relief is
provided to Crosspointe Elementary through a boundary change to Plumosa
Elementary.
* Additional improvements to the feeder pattern for the Knollwood
development is provided to students currently attending Hidden Oaks
through a boundary change to Citrus Cove Elementary.
* A Community Input Meeting was held on October 9, 2007 at Odyssey
Middle School. Notification was provided to parents of students potentially
affected by the changes, as well as principals of schools included in the
studies, and municipalities.    Additional public input was gathered at
scheduled ABC meetings and through fax, letter, and e-mail. Copies of public
input correspondence are available for review in the Board Minutes Office.
* Five of the nine speakers at the Community Input Meeting of October 9 th
asked about program offerings at the new school, three speakers raised
questions about distance, and other concerns about gifted and dual language
programs were voiced.
* Staff has recognized an area in the Hagen Road elementary boundary that
may house migrant students. Staff has been working closely with the school
administration to assure the migrant population maintains continuity in
their educational options. Potential migrant populations have been contacted
by school bilingual staff to communicate the boundary issues to them and
provide options to remain at Hagen Road to accommodate their needs.
Transportation has been involved with this outreach and these students and
their families will be communicated with on an individual basis throughout
the boundary change process.
* At the November 29th ABC meeting members of Discovery Key Elementary
raised concerns that the Z-3 proposal will not provide enough relief for the
school. They raised concerns about traffic due to overcrowding at Discovery
Key and further growth impact due to new developments within the
boundary of Discovery Key.
* On November 29, 2007 the ABC voted 10-2 to recommend Study Z-3 to the
Superintendent. Stephen Waldman and Kay Stagray were opposed.
* On January 9, 2008 the Board voted 7-0 to tentatively approve Study Z-3
for final adoption at the February 27th second reading and final adoption
Board Hearing.


Motions:
I recommend that the School Board
provide final approval for the Advisory
Boundary Committee's recommendation of
Boundary Study Z-3, establishing the
attendance boundaries for the new West
                                          - PASS

Minutes:

Florida Atlantic University (FAU) is the FCC licensee of A-group stations in
the Educational Broadband Service (“EBS―), which operate in and
around the Palm Beach, Florida area on channels A1-A4 (the “A-Group
Stations―). The A-Group Stations each have one A4 channel (the “A4
Channels―). FAU has applied to the FCC for a waiver, with the
conditioned support and consent of the School Board, for the grant of
geographic service areas (“GSAs―) for the A-Group Stations (the
“Pending Petition―). The School Board wishes to extend the coverage
of its TEN video transmissions into areas that will be covered by the GSAs of
the A-Group Stations (the coastal area of Palm Beach County), by assignment
of the A4 Channels to the School Board. The area shown within yellow arc on
the attached map represents the area that the School Board would obtain the
rights to broadcast into. Obtaining rights to the A4 Channels is a key to
TEN’s desire to eventually broadcast its video programming on from the
Boynton Beach studio instead of Belle Glade.



The School Board is the FCC licensee of a EBS station, which currently
includes inter alia D1 and D2 channels on the license (collectively, the “D-
Channels―). The D-Channels were previously applied for by FAU and
were removed from its application by FAU for the benefit of the School Board
in partial satisfaction of FAU’s obligations under the now-void May 22,
1995 Market Settlement Agreement (the “Market Agreement―). FAU
has requested that the School Board assign to FAU any rights the School
Board may have to the D-Channels.



The essential elements of the Spectrum Coordination Agreement are as
follows:

      The School Board will provide the FCC with its support and consent
       for the A-Group Stations to receive GSAs.
      FAU will assign to the School Board the A4 Channels. During the
       pendency of A4 Channels assignment application, the School Board
       will have the use of the A4 Channels under the terms of the Short
       Term Lease.
      The School Board will assign to FAU any rights of the School Board in
       the D-Channels.
      The Parties will mutually acknowledge that the Market Agreement
       has been terminated and rendered null and void, and release each
       other from performance obligations and liabilities arising under the
       Market Agreement.



Motions:
I recommend the School Board approve a
Spectrum Coordination Agreement and
Educational Broadband Service Short-
Term De Facto Transfer Lease Agreement - PASS
with Florida Atlantic University and
authorize the Superintendent and Board
Chairman to sign all necessary documents.
