11.12. Approval of the New Job Description of Technology Coordinator I
Speaker:
Julio Hernandez
Rationale:

We have a need for application support, administration and training:

  • To ensure rapid response to complex inquiries regarding the use of Q, especially around scheduling, enrollment and attendance.

  • To coordinate the dissemination of information (trainings and procedures documents) regarding attendance reporting, especially as it pertains to ADA issues.

  • To develop and implement a systemic approach to providing training (written and oral) to district staff in the use of Escape, Q, Google Apps for Education and other district-wide technology applications.  

  • To assist with the upcoming initiative to evaluate and potentially replace our Student Information System

  • To provide day-to-day operational leadership to Tech department staff in the absence of the Director.  The Coordinator will have a limited role in meetings and other district-wide activities, in order to make sure that Tech department line staff have readily available leadership;  Director will take the lead on attending meetings to collaborate with other DO departments and sites on educational technology, facilities, fiscal, human resources and student services matters.

  • To provide greater technical support and system oversight to ensure we are complying with all privacy laws and regulations (FERPA, COPPA, etc)

Therefore, we plan to maintain the Coordinator position in the current year and multi year budgets. This position will:

  • Coordinate support and training for staff, students and community members in the use of the District's Student Information Systems and Google collaboration tools

  • Oversee the information security practices that protect the privacy of student/family data

  • Participate in district-wide network and system administration

12.3. Report, Discussion, and Possible Action to Approve the Career Technical Education Facilities Program (CTEFP) Grant Application for Foothill High School proposed CTE (Career Technical Education) plaza building (20 Minutes)
Speaker:
Odie J. Douglas
Rationale:

The District is seeking to create a flagship educational building for PUSD that fosters 21st century learning in the form of two CTE (Career Technical Education) buildings at Foothill High School.

Recommended Motion:

The Administration recommends that the Board of Trustees review and approve the CTEFP Grant Applications.

12.4. Report, Discussion and Update from August 14, 2018 Regarding Bond Financing (20 Minutes)
Speaker:
Micaela Ochoa
Rationale:

On August 8, 2017, the Board of Trustees approved Resolution No. 2017-2018.03 authorizing the issuance and sale of not to exceed $72,000,000 aggregate principal amount of Bonds of Pleasanton Unified School District.  As a result, the District issued its first series of bonds under the November 8, 2016 Measure I1 authorization.

Proceeds of the first series of bonds are being used to (i) provide funds to cause a portion of the Pleasanton Unified School District 2010 Refunding Certificates of Participation (the "2010  Prior Certificates") to be prepaid, and (ii) finance specific construction, repair and improvement projects approved by the voters of the District.  The 2010 Prior Certificates, in part, refinanced the Alameda-Contra Costa Schools Financing Authority Variable Rate Demand Certificates of Participation (Capital Improvement Financing Projects, Series K) (the "2002 Prior Certificates"), which financed among other things, additional classrooms and facilities at Amador Valley High School and Foothill High School and a child care facility (the "2002 Project").  

On August 14, 2018, the Administration provided the Board of Trustees with an update on the market, outstanding debt, and Measure I1.  In addition, the Administration presented potential ideas regarding a possible 2020 tax rate extension.  

On October 9, 2018, the Administration would like to provide the Board of Trustees with an update from August 14, 2018 (Attachment A), and discuss potential next steps including:

1. Polling
2. Defining a project list
3. Presenting polling results

Speaker:

Rationale:

Our Board and community will receive an annual 9th grade math update on student placement in Algebra and Geometry.  Senate Bill 359 requires Districts to annually report on 9th grade math placement of students.

Board Policy 6151.2 was adopted in order to reinforce a fair, objective, and transparent protocol that serves students entering grades 6-12.  This policy was in response to our Board's Equity and Diversity Resolution (2015-16.23) and the California Mathematics Placement Act of 2015.  Both of these items call for accurately evaluating and placing students in appropriate mathematics courses while closing the achievement/opportunity gap so that all students are successful.

The Administration recommends that the Board of Trustees receive and review the report on the Annual 9th Grade Placement process.

12.7. Report, Discussion and Possible Action to Approve a Waiver Application, per EC §44252(b), BSR (Basic Skills Requirement) for a credential or a permit (5 Minutes)
Speaker:
Julio Hernandez
Rationale:

The District must ensure that all certificated employees are appropriately credentialed, per Education Code §44830(a).  The Board of Trustees may approve that a waiver application be submitted to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) for an applicant when a fully credentialed candidate is not available.

The District began a search for a Deaf and Hard of Hearing teacher in May 2017. The search included posting the position on our District website, EdJoin, and contacting local universities. The District was fortunate to find a candidate, Bradley Dannis, who holds the special skills required for the position. 

Bradley Dannis holds a Bachelor's Degree in History.  Both of Mr. Dannis' parents work in the field of Deaf Education.  He has a knowledge of the field and what it takes to be successful in it.  He has access to many resources for support as he works towards his credential in Special Education Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

Mr. Dannis is currently actively searching for a Deaf and Hard of Hearing credential program.  He is working to meet basic university requirements to be issued an intern credential once he is enrolled. 

We are confident of Bradley's qualifications and are recommending that the Board approve this request to apply for a Waiver for a Preliminary Education Specialist Deaf and Hard of Hearing Credential with the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC).



 
Recommended Motion:

The Administration recommends that the Board of Trustees approve a Waiver Application, per EC §44252(b), BSR (Basic Skills Requirement) for a Credential or Permit, to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) for Bradley Dannis.
