It is recommended that the Board of Education approve Change Order #01 with Ampco Contracting for the Santa Monica High School – Discovery Building Project - Demolition of Science and Technology Buildings, in an amount not to exceed $394,063.43 for a total contract amount of $4,348,063.43 with 25 day’s impact to the schedule.

Rationale:

On May 3, 2018 the Board awarded to Ampco Contracting, the demolition contract for the Science and Technology Buildings as the first phase of the preparation for the construction of the new Discovery Building, in the amount of $3,954,000.00.

A significant amount of previously unknown asbestos containing material in the Technology building was identified during the previous Abatement Project. The scope of the additional work was too significant to have included in that project and so it was decided that it should be added to the demolition contract. Ampco Contracting was requested to provide a cost proposal for this work, which has been assessed by the District’s project team to be reasonable. The work will require the full encapsulation of the entire building, the removal of the stucco and then the removal of the asbestos containing coating from the underlying CMU walls. All of the material removed must be contained, bagged and disposed of in a carefully regulated method. This will add 25 days to the demolition of the Technology Building, which at this stage, is on the critical path. Although that will add to the schedule, it will not affect the next phase of the development.

.VIII.C.21. Award of Agreement – Santa Monica High School - Discovery Building Project – Professional Engineering Services - Ishler Design & Engineering Associates– Measure ES
Recommended Motion:

It is recommended that the Board of Education award an agreement to Ishler Design & Engineering to provide Professional Engineering Services for Santa Monica High School - Discovery Building Project in an amount not to exceed $1,200.00.

Rationale:

On May 19, 2018, the District utilized the two classrooms on the 2nd floor of The Growing Place to use as light storage. This space is being used to store the student desks used for testing at Samohi at the end of each year. These desks were previously being stored in the Technology Building at Samohi which is scheduled to be demolished in the summer of 2018 so a new space was necessary.

Ishler Design and Engineering Associates has been asked to provide an evaluation of the suitability of utilizing the 2nd floor area at The Growing Place for light storage.

.VIII.C.24. Amendment #15 to Agreement - Santa Monica High School – Discovery Building Project - Olympic Spur – Architectural Services - Chan Young Architects – Measure ES
Recommended Motion:

It is recommended that the Board of Education approve Contract Amendment #15 with Chan Young Architects to provide architectural services for: the redesign of components of the Olympic Spur Project; and to provide a T&M design services budget for numerous small projects that have been identified for Santa Monica High School – Discovery Building Project in an amount not to exceed $58,556.00 for a total contract amendment amount of $1,800,683.47.

Rationale:

A campus wide standard perimeter fence design, based on the fence design used around Innovation, has been recently adopted for the school to enhance the campus identity. It was decided to extend that design for the new Olympic Spur Project to define the south western corner of the campus along Olympic Blvd. This required the redesign of components of the project. The cost for the additional service is $8,556.00.

A number of smaller projects for the Samohi Campus have been identified, which will require design work, which include Barnum Hall Seating revisions; additional lighting; campus fencing and a number of other projects, many of which require a quick response or turn-around. This budget is being created to accommodate ongoing design consulting services to be used on a Time and Materials basis when required. The budget allowance requested is $50,000.00 - for a total contract amendment amount not to exceed $58,556.00.

.VIII.D.4. Declaration of Indefinite Salaries for Represented Bargaining Unit Members and Unrepresented Senior Management, Management, Supervisory and Confidential Employees for 2018-2019
Recommended Motion:

It is recommended that the Board of Education declare salaries as indefinite for bargaining unit members and unrepresented senior management, management, supervisory and confidential employees for the 2018-2019 school year.

Comments:

Because salaries for represented bargaining unit members and unrepresented senior management, management, supervisory and confidential employees are set by the Board of Education, if the Board of Education declares, in advance of the new fiscal year, that salaries for its employees are indefinite, whether subject to future review, negotiations, financial condition, or other factors, such action will suffice to permit retroactive salary adjustments back to the beginning of the new year.

This action meets the requirements specified in Education Code Section 45032.

Rationale:

Education Code 48926 requires school districts and county offices of education to develop a countywide plan for providing education services to all expelled students in the county.  The updated plan, last published in 2015, was adopted by the Los Angeles County Board of Education at its April 10, 2018, regular meeting, and reflects district responses to the December 14, 2017, survey that was provided to districts countywide.  The plan provides a basic overview of how the mandates of EC 48926 have been addressed in Los Angeles County, plus includes suggestions for the future to better meet district needs. 

School districts in Los Angeles County are required (as per EC 48926) to accept and acknowledge the Los Angeles County Plan for Expelled Students by June 13, 2018, to address the needs of all expelled pupils in Los Angeles County. 

 
Comments:

The countywide plan shall:

  • Enumerate existing educational alternatives
  • Identify gaps in educational services
  • Identify plans for filling those service gaps and
  • Identify alternative placements for pupils who fail to meet terms and conditions of their alternative placement.

The plan is attached to this item.

.X.C. Proposal to Establish Separate Fundraising Vehicles for Malibu Schools and Santa Monica Schools (30 min)
Rationale:

After discussions with representatives from SMMEF, PTA Council, Malibu PTAs, Malibu principals, several Board members and others, it is recommended that beginning with monies to be raised for Fiscal Year 2019-2020 (which will begin in July 2018), the fundraising structure should be changed so that the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation ("SMMEF") is responsible for raising money to support board-approved programs for Santa Monica schools and a different entity (whether it is an existing entity such as the Shark Fund or some other non-profit entity yet to be formed) should raise money for board-approved programs for Malibu schools. It allows for Malibu to raise money for Malibu schools while Santa Monica will raise money for Santa Monica schools. This structure is akin to the approach being taken with respect to the probable November 2018 bond measure with the adoption of School Facility Improvement Districts for Malibu and Santa Monica.

SMMEF is charged with raising money throughout the District for programs that are approved by the SMMUSD Board of Education upon the recommendation of the Superintendent and staff, after collaboration with the Superintendent’s Advisory Committee (“SAC”). The SAC is comprised of representatives from all schools in the District.

For the past five years, 95% of the monies raised from parents has come from Santa Monica parents, while only 5% of monies raised from parents has come from Malibu parents. With each subsequent year, this fundraising reality has led to increasing concern on the part of the SMMEF Board. In discussions held with Malibu PTA and education community leaders, Malibu has expressed an interest in an approach that would allow for, and make clear, that monies raised in Malibu would go to support Malibu students and Malibu schools. The SMMEF Board is hopeful that a change in the districtwide funding structure that would allow for separate fundraising in Malibu for Malibu schools would boost fundraising in Malibu, and that this would boost Santa Monica fundraising as well. 

If the most positive outcome occurs and Malibu and/or Santa Monica begin to raise money over and above the amount necessary to pay for programs approved by the School Board, on the recommendation of the Superintendent upon collaboration with a Malibu SAC and a Santa Monica SAC respectively, the additional monies can either be placed in an endowment, rolled over to help cover the following year’s program costs, or become part of a bigger plan to address “aspirational” programs not yet funded or approved.  If this occurs, that will be a welcome scenario for the Superintendent, staff, the SACs and the School Board to deal with.

 
Financial Impact:

Greater fundraising potential for both Santa Monica and Malibu programs.

Comments:

SMMEF’s fiscal year is July 1 through June 30. It raises funds for the following year, not for the year in which the money is raised. In order to begin separating the fundraising, SMMEF must start communicating and fundraising on July 1, 2018 for the 2019-2020 school year. This decision must be made as soon as possible in order for appropriate communications materials to be developed for both Santa Monica schools and Malibu schools.

Staff anticipates that this item will require a total of 30 minutes, with 10 minutes for the staff report and 20 minutes for board member questions and comments.

.X.D. Consider Revising BP and AR 6143 – Courses of Study (25 min)
Recommended Motion:

It is recommended that the Board of Education consider revising BP and AR 6143 – Courses of Study.

Rationale:

On May 18, 2017, the board approved changes to BP 6146.1 – High School Graduation Requirements to include an American Cultures and Ethnic Studies graduation requirement.  During that policy update process, the board sub-committee suggested that staff:

  • return with CSBA routine updates to BP 6146.1 (Item No. X.E in this agenda)
  • weave the Social Justice Standards through all PreK-12 curriculum
  • initiate, create and revise UC A-G course electives that will align with the District defined Social Justice standards. 

Staff has updated BP and AR 6143 – Courses of Study to meet the board’s direction regarding the Social Justice Standards.  The policy has been updated to reference the California Content Standards, Frameworks and Social Justice Standards (Teaching Tolerance, 2016; adopted by SMMUSD Board of Education December 14, 2017).

The regulation has been updated to include the Social Justice Standards in grades 1-6 and also 7-12.

 
Comments:

The board will discuss Item Nos. X.D-E together, as they are related (the attached presentation addresses both items).  Staff anticipates that these items will require a total of 15 minutes, with 15 minutes for the staff report and 10 minutes for board member questions/comments.

.X.E. Consider Revising BP 6146.1 – High School Graduation Requirements
Recommended Motion:

It is recommended that he Board of Education consider revising BP 6146.1 – High School Graduation Requirements. 

Rationale:

On May 18, 2017, the board approved changes to the policy and regulation to include an American cultures and ethnic studies graduation requirement.  During that revision process, the board decided to postpone the CSBA recommended updates to the policy until a future date.  Those CSBA changes are now coming forward for discussion.

The policy has been updated to reflect new law (AB 830, Ch. 641, Statutes of 2017), which repealed Education Code 60850-60859, thereby eliminating the California High School Exit Examination as a requirement for high school graduation. 

The regulation has been attached just for reference.  

 
Comments:

The board will discuss Item Nos. X.D-E together, as they are related (the attached presentation addresses both items).  Staff anticipates that these items will require a total of 15 minutes, with 15 minutes for the staff report and 10 minutes for board member questions/comments.
