K.1. Adopt Gann Limit Resolution # 17-009
Speaker:
Rudolph Ramirez
Rationale:

School agencies are required to perform Gann limit calculations as required by the state constitution.  Also, it is important that school agencies do these calculations to identify how much state aid counts toward the agency’s Gann limit, so that the State of California knows how much state aid counts toward its own Gann limit.  Nearly every school district is exactly at its Gann limit.  Below are the inflation and population factors used in performing this calculation:

                                                                                      2015-16           Projected 2016-17

                                      Inflation Adjustment          1.0382                         1.0537

                                      Population Adjustment                1.0197                         0.9929


 
Financial Impact:

No fiscal impact.  Gann calculation and resolution are required by state law.  

If District was out of compliance action would be required by County Office of Education fiscal staff.


Quick Summary / Abstract:

In 1979 Paul Gann, co-author of Proposition 13, started a seperate initiative designed to limit growth in government spending.  This initiative, enacted as Proposition 4 in 1979, did not require cuts in government spending, but rather established constitutional limits on the allowable growth in government spending.  These appropriations limits, commonly called Gann limits, allow spending to grow at a rate no faster than inflation and the growth in population.

Each fiscal year the district is required to calculate the Gann Limit for the prior year and the current year.

Quick Summary / Abstract:




L.1. Single Plan For Student Achievement for Scotts Valley Middle School and SVUSD Local Control Accountability PlanWas edited within 72 hours of the Meeting
Speaker:
Michelle Stewart
Rationale:

Academic achievement of students is the top priority of the education system in California and Scotts Valley Unified School District.  Education Code (EC) Section 52060 requires the State Board of Education (SBE) to adopt templates for the development of the LCAPs. EC Section 64001 and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires schools that receive state and federal funds through the Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS) and ESEA Program Improvement (PI) funds to consolidate all school plans into the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).

 
Financial Impact:

Under LCAP, school improvement funds and related categorical supplemental funds are reflected in the district's budget and are aligned with school improvement targets.

Quick Summary / Abstract:

LCAPs must include, for every school district and each of their schools, a description of the annual goals to be achieved for each of the state priorities for all students and each subgroup of students. Each LCAP must also describe specific actions to achieve those goals, and list and describe annual expenditures necessary to implement the specific actions.

Single Plans for Student Achievement (SPSA) are required to describe a continuous development, implementation, and monitoring cycle including collection and analysis of student performance data, setting priorities for program improvements and learning targets, rigorous use of effective solution strategies, and ongoing monitoring of results. The purpose of the SPSA is to provide a structured means to improve student academic performance that has been approved by both the School Site Council and the Board.

Existing law requires the SBE, to the greatest extent possible, to take steps to minimize duplication of effort in meeting state and federal accountability requirements at the local level. The alignment between the SARC and SPSA data elements and LCAP will enhance the focus on the state priorities at the school level and minimize local efforts in meeting state and federal accountability requirements, while continuing to provide parents and the public with a powerful tool to facilitate the understanding of school conditions and performance.
