E.6. Approval of the 2017-2018 Elementary Instructional Minutes
Speaker:
Dr. Anna-Maria Guzman, Assistant Superintendent
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Board will consider approval of the proposed elementary instructional minutes for the 2017-18 school year.

Rationale:

Education Code requires districts to provide an instructional year of 180 days.  For the 2017-18 school year, Santa Rosa City Elementary Schools will meet and/or exceed the minimum number of instructional minutes required.  The minimum number of instructional minutes are as follows:  Kindergarten from 42,000 or more, 1st-3rd grades from 50,400 or more, 4th -6th grades from 54,000 or more.

The instructional Minutes for 2016-17 were approved by the Board of Education on June 22, 2016.

 
Financial Impact:

Average daily attendance is a measurement of the number of pupils attending classes in the district. Attendance accounting and instructional minute verification form the fiscal basis for the apportionment of state funds to districts.  The District would be penalized financially should a school not meet the minimum required instructional minutes.

E.7. Approval of the Use of Piggyback Bids/Contract (CMAS, NASPO, Co-Ops) for the 2017/18 School Year
Speaker:
Rick Edson, Chief Technology / Bond Officer; Kelley Cook, Director
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Board will consider approval of the use of piggyback bids, California Multiple Award Schedules (CMAS), National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) contracts, and Co-Ops for the procurement of goods and services for the 2017-18 school year. 

Rationale:

As per Santa Rosa City Schools' Board Policy 3311 and California Public Contract Code Section 20118, when it is in the best interest for the District, the Board may determine that it is best to piggyback onto the contract of another public agency or corporation for the lease or purchase of furniture, equipment or supplies to the extent authorized by law. Utilizing piggyback bids, CMAS and NASPO contracts, and Co-Ops (such as BuyBoard) will allow the District to secure better pricing and will save time when making purchases that exceed bid limits as processing and awarding bids can run in excess of ninety (90) days. 

Throughout the years, the Board has approved the use of piggyback bids, CMAS and NASPO (formerly WSCA) contracts and Co-Ops. A few approvals for the 2016-17 school year include:

August 24, 2016- Approval of the Development Group, Inc. CMAS Contract for Access Points for the Network Access and Infrastructure Project Phase II.

April 26, 2017- Approval of the Musco Sports Lighting, LLC National Joint Powers Alliance Contract for the procurement of Athletic Field Lighting Systems of the PHS Lights Project.

E.8. Acceptance of Dependent Charter Schools' LCAPs
Speaker:
Dr. Anna-Maria Guzman, Assistant Superintendent
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Board of Education will consider acceptance of the LCAP charters for the Santa Rosa French-American Charter School, Cesar Chavez Language Academy, Santa Rosa Charter School for the Arts, and the Santa Rosa Accelerated Charter School.

Rationale:

Each of the dependent charter schools in Santa Rosa City Schools is responsible for creating a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP for each of the dependent charter schools is aligned with the priorities of the district and also adhered to the charges of their charter. Each of the charter schools worked with their advisory groups, teachers, and parents in the revision of their LCAP..

Highlights from each LCAP:
Cesar Chavez Language Academy

  • Strong commitment to Professional Development for CCLA teachers: 2 paid days in August for Writing and Guided Reading. .6FTE TOSA who will mostly be providing PD to teachers, especially new teachers/interns.
  • An increase of technology: Each grade level now has a Chromebook cart. The goal is for students to work at their level in Math and Reading (Dreambox & Razz Kids) during small group instruction time.
  • Paid collaboration time for teachers (one release day per Trimester) for collaboration and development of assessments, etc. 
  • Four parent training per year (Math, How to help Kids at home with Homework, Literacy nights)

District Goal 1: Provide a coherent, rigorous and relevant teaching and learning program to graduate college and career, ready students

• As a result of our LCAP driven professional development, teachers used this knowledge to ensure that students experienced tiered activities as well as engaged in a growing number of critical thinking, creative, and complex tasks. Additionally, staff integrated technology into units of learning in a variety of ways that allowed for student growth and learning. Using LCAP funds to bring in the Listening For a Change program allowed students to think critically, make meaning and judgments around environmentalism and social justice. 

District Goal 2: Increase student wellness and family engagement through the full-service community model                                                                                                                                                      
Student Wellness: 
• Our administration and staff were committed to communicating with parents weekly in order to engage them regularly in the school community. In addition, we met with our parent group, Advisory Council, and staff in order to make consensus-based decisions. Teachers also worked regularly to create school-wide activities to foster teamwork and friendship. They also regularly used the consulting counselor and SAY counselor to come to the classroom to guide students through various social-emotional topics as well as to see specific students and groups of students. 

Family Engagement:

• Facebook Page

    • Enhance community involvement through various events that aim at Parent Education and communication of the SRFACS Mission and Vision.  Create more opportunities for new student/family orientation that aims at explaining our dual immersion program.

E.9. Approval of the 2017-2018 Consolidated Application for Funding
Speaker:
Steve Mizera, Assistant Superintendent
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Board will consider approval of the 2017-2018 Consolidated Application for funding. 

Rationale:

The Consolidated Application (ConApp) is used by the California Department of Education (CDE) to distribute categorical funds from various state and federal programs to school districts.

The Spring release (formerly Part I) of the ConApp, documents participation in these programs and provides assurances that the district will comply with the legal requirements of each program.  Program entitlements are determined by formulas contained in the laws that created the programs.  The 2017 Spring release (Part I) is due June 30, 2017 and includes 2016/17 Expenditure Reports and 2017/18 Application for funding.

The Winter release (formerly Part II) of the ConApp contains the district entitlements for each funded program.  OutOW6SK7 of each state and federal program entitlements, districts allocate funds for indirect costs of administration, for programs operated by the district office, and for programs operated at schools.

For the 2017/18 school year, the Consolidated Application will be reviewed by the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC).

Legal assurances must be submitted with the Consolidated Application.  By submitting these assurances, the LEA agrees to adhere to all state and federal statutes, regulations, program plans and applications appropriate to several federal programs under which categorical funds are made available.  The LEA must comply with all nondiscriminatory regulations, including those associated with age, gender and disabilities.

The programs funded through the Consolidated Application are briefly described in Table A which is attached.

 
Financial Impact:

Failure to submit the Consolidate Application disqualifies districts from participating in the programs covered by the application.  In 2016/17, the Consolidated Application represented $2,969,534 in Title I federal funds, $557,263 in Title II federal funds, and $422,490 in Title III funds-Limited English Proficient and Immigrant.

Minutes:
The Board approved the 2017-2018 Consolidated Application for funding.

E.10. Approval of the Agricultural Career Technical Education Incentive Grant
Speaker:
Debi Batini, Director
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Board will consider approval of the 2017-2018 Agricultural Career Technical Education Incentive Grant applications for Elsie Allen and Santa Rosa High Schools in the total amount of $38,864.

Rationale:

The District supports two strong Agriculture programs at Elsie Allen High School (EAHS) and Santa Rosa High School (SRHS). The Agricultural Career Technical Education Incentive Grant supplies a major source of funding for the two programs. Grant funding has been used to support student participation in Career Development Events and FFA leadership activities, the purchasing of equipment and supplies to assist students with raising livestock to be exhibited at local fairs, professional development for the Agriculture Science teachers provided by the California Agricultural Teachers’ Association, and the purchasing of classroom instructional materials.

The grant applications are due to the California Department of Education on June 30, 2017.

Summary of Previous Board Activity:

June 22, 2016  -  The Board of Education approved the 2016-2017 application for Agricultural Career Technical Education Incentive Grant funds.

 
Financial Impact:

Fiscal Impact: Santa Rosa City Schools is applying for $38,864 in grant funding for the Elsie Allen and Santa Rosa High School Agriculture Programs. There is a matching funds requirement. For the 2016-2017 program year, unrestricted District funds were used to meet the matching requirement. Examples of sources that can be used to meet the matching requirement for the 2017-2018 program year include, but are not limited to, unrestricted District funds and the Carl D. Perkins grant.

Staffing Impact: The Agricultural Education Incentive Grant requires that courses in the program, excluding the Project Period, not exceed 25 students in order to receive a $2,000 grant stipend per teacher.  Due to financial considerations, it was determined that sites with agriculture programs staff courses at higher than the 25:1 ratio, thus making the programs ineligible to receive the additional grant funding. This amounts to a loss of $6,000 for Elsie Allen High School and a loss of $6,000 for the Santa Rosa High School program. At this time, the losses to each school are offset by the Career Pathways consumable supply budgets, as it costs less to make up the grant differential for each school rather than staff at the lower ratio.  

Minutes:
The Board approved the 2017-2018 Agricultural Career Technical Education Incentive Grant applications for Elsie Allen and Santa Rosa High Schools in the total amount of $38,864.

Rationale:

On October 31, 2015, the three-year collective bargaining agreements between the CSEA 75 & CSEA 367 terminated.  In accordance with Section 17.6 of the CSEA 75 collective bargaining agreement, the District and CSEA 75 have agreed and merged the CSEA 75 and CSEA 367 successor three-year contracts into one CSEA 75 contract, effective November 1, 2015, through October 31, 2018, determined by the meet-and-greet negotiation process.

Speaker:
Jason A. Lea, Assistant Superintendent
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Board will consider approval of the proposed 2017-2018 Student Teaching Agreement Amendment between Santa Rosa City Schools (SRCS) and Sonoma State University (SSU).

Rationale:

The current fully executed Student Internship Agreement contains all of the requirements requested by the SRCS district and shall remain unchanged and in full force for the 2017-2018 school year. Due to available funding, SSU will increase the rate of payment to the district for each full-time student teacher from $100 to $150, as outlined in the Addendum No.1 for the 2017-2018 school year.

This agreement will provide SRCS with access to potential candidates to fill district vacancies.  So far, there are 19 pending SSU student teachers being considered for placement in our school district for the 2017-2018 school year.  Last year we placed 23 SSU student teachers and 2 student counselors among nine of our secondary sites, matching them to 25 master teachers.

The Grant provides $1,076,000 to support program in K-12 to reduce chronic absenteeism and truancy. This one-time infusion of grant funding will enable SRCS to implement the following strategies to reduce the district's high absenteeism rates: (1) Provide early intervention to stop patterns of absenteeism; (2) Reach out to parents and engage them about the importance of school attendance; (3) Develop a system to work with families to case manage their absenteeism issues within the entire family, regardless of which schools their children attend; (4) Implement district-wide systems to better track and monitor student attendance; (5) Use a tiered approach through the BEST Plus teams to reduce chronic absences; (6) Assist classroom teachers to enable them to work directly with students and families to better manage absenteeism; (7) Develop policies and restorative practices designed to decrease absenteeism; (8) Ensure that practices to reduce absenteeism align with SRCS LCAP goals; and (9) Support existing/create new partnerships with community-based organizations and county agencies to provide tailored support to best serve the needs of students and families.

Approval to draft a grant proposal to the California Department of Education (CDE) was granted by the Board on April 26, 2017. 

The Project SAIL grant requires modifications to an existing classified job description. The District and CSEA have met and will continue to meet to review those modifications. All positions associated with the Grant will be advertised as "Grant Funded' and will have the end of the Grant (2019) noticed in all the postings. 

 
Financial Impact:

The three-year grant, will fund up to $360,000 per year for  3 years, for a total of $1,076,000 between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2020.  As part of the grant, Santa Rosa City Schools would provide matching "in-kind" funds of at least 20% of the award annually.  This 20% ($72,000/year) does not exceed our current annual investment in this project. Since the purpose of this grant funding is to build staff and system capacity through training and adoption of new processes and procedures to better manage truancy and absenteeism, it is anticipated that no additional funding will be required after the grant funding ends to sustain SRCS' absenteeism initiative. As we know, reduced student absences not only improves student learning but allows the District to increase revenue through gained Daily Attendance.

E.17. Approval of the 2017-2018 Secondary Instructional Minutes
Speaker:
Dr. Anna-Maria Guzman, Assistant Superintendent
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Board will consider approval of the proposed secondary instructional minutes for the 2017-2018 school year.  

Rationale:

Annually, each District school must submit to the Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction, 7-12, for approval its proposed instructional minutes for the coming school year.  Once those minutes have been verified, they are reported to the Board of Education for approval.

Educational Code requires districts to provide an instructional year of 180 days.  It further stipulates the minimum number of instructional minutes required each year.  For the school year 2017-2018, Santa Rosa City School will meet and or exceed the minimum number of instructional minutes that are required.  Our middle schools are well over the required minutes due to alignment with high school level minutes.

F. DISCUSSION / ACTION ITEMS
F.1. (Discussion) Review the Santa Rosa City Schools' English Learner Master Plan
Speaker:
Dr. Anna Maria-Guzman, Assistant Superintendent; Aracely Romo-Flores, Director
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Board will review the draft of the Santa Rosa City Schools' English Learner (EL) Master Plan. 

Rationale:

More than a quarter of Santa Rosa City Schools' students are English Learners and approximately 50% are Long-Term English Learners meaning they have been in American schools for 6 years or longer. These students are not making adequate gains in their English language acquisition and continue to struggle academically.

The English Learner Master Plan will focus on helping Santa Rosa City Schools staff to support our English Learners to meet the California Standards so that they graduate college and career ready, which is in alignment with LCAP Goal 1. The Plan will also support our English Learner families so that they may work collaboratively to ensure students meet their full academic, social-emotional and economic potential, which is in alignment with LCAP Goal 2.

Santa Rosa City Schools adopted the current English Learner Master Plan on June 9, 2010. Much has changed in the world of education. We now have Common Core California Standards for English Language Arts, English Language Development, Common Core California Standards for Math, Next Generation Science Standards, a new Framework for English Language Arts and English Language Development.

The Department of Justice, Office of Civil Rights and the U.S. Department of Education have provided districts with many resources to ensure that English Learners' civil rights are met through equity, access, and rigor in the school setting. We have used those resources to guide the development of this plan. 

Previous Board Activity

On October 12, 2016, the Board received and English Learner and English Learner Master Plan Update where English Learner data and actions implemented to support English Learners were shared.

On February 8, 2017, the Board heard about the work of the Supporting Our Language Learners (SOLL) Counselors and their impact thus far on helping to support and reclassify English Learners.

On May 10, 2017, The Board heard an update on the EL Master Plan.

 
Financial Impact:

The budget to implement this plan is embedded in the District's LCAP.

F.2. (Action) Adoption of Santa Rosa City Schools Budget for the 2017/18 School Year and Statement of Reserves
Speaker:
Andre R. Bell, Assistant Superintendent and Joel Dontos, Executive Director
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Board will consider approval of Resolution 2016/17-064 to adopt the District's 2017/18 budget, with the understanding that revisions may be necessary once the 2017/18 State Budget is signed by the Governor.  


Rationale:

As of the writing of this report, the State budget has not yet been signed, but it appears that the assumptions used in the development of the budget will be adopted by the State. Once the State budget is signed, a revision with the final numbers will come before the Board with the 45 day update.

The 2017-18 budget shows a projected $5,350,215 deficiency of revenues over expenditures. This results in a projected ending reserve of $7,975,420 or 4.62%.

Since the time of the Public Hearing, the budget has been revised to reflect the change in the LCFF revenues to reflect the ADA adjustment (increase in revenue and elimination of the ADA Adjustment assignment in the EFB) and the inclusion of $2,000,000 of one-time mandate revenue.

This is the fourth year of the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The budget includes the funding of programs described in the LCAP.

The true financial outlook will evolve over the next few months as the State budget is adopted, our financial records for 2016-17 are finalized, actual student enrollments are known after school opens and the staffing assignments are completed.

The 2017-18 budget includes the thirteen approved spending reductions items totaling $4,560,000. The multi-year projections include yet to be determined expenditure reductions in 2018-19 of $5,000,000 and in 2019-20 of $2,000,000

Speaker:
Andre R. Bell, Assistant Superintendent
Quick Summary / Abstract:

Attached for the Board's reference is information on the student accident insurance carrier for the 2017-18 school year.

Rationale:
In compliance with Education Codes 32220-32224, the District makes available insurance coverage for members of an athletic team (as defined by ED 32220(c)).  Student accident insurance and health insurance programs are additionally made available to other members of the student body.  Families subscribe directly for coverage and any claims are handled directly between the families and the company.  The District has no involvement other than making the plan available.  Service has been satisfactory.  Approximately 7 students participated in the plan in 2016-17, a decrease of approximately 30% from 2015-16.  Overall, the benefits have remained the same in the past, with no rate increase in most cases.  The exhibit material includes a description of benefits.
 
Financial Impact:

There is no cost to the District.  Participating families pay premium costs directly to Myers-Stevens & Toohey & Co., Inc.
