J. Information on the Preliminary Environmental Assessment for the California State Department of Toxic Substance Control
Speaker:
Rudolph Ramirez
Rationale:

During this PEA investigation, soil samples were collected near the existing buildings to evaluate potential impacts from possible pest control spraying near the building perimeters, and potential impacts from building materials such as lead-based paint and/or polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) caulking compounds. Additionally, soil samples were collected near an existing PG&E transformer since there is a potential that PCBs may have been historically used within the transformer. Soil vapor and soil sampling was also performed to evaluate potential vapor intrusion concerns and soil impacts in the area of former underground storage tanks and where historical onsite wastewater discharges occurred.

Laboratory analyses of the soil samples detected organochlorine pesticides and lead at concentrations that exceed residential (unrestricted use) environmental screening levels.


 
Financial Impact:

The cost of the soil removal and disposal is budgeted in the Middle School Reconstruction budget.

Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Preliminary Environmental Report will be sent to the California State Department of Toxic Substance Control once the public comment period ends January 29, 2017. The DTSC formally reviews the report and once the removal action work plan is reviewed and approved, there will need to be a second 30 day public comment period for the removal action work plan.

P.3. Approve the College Readiness Block Grant
Speaker:
Michelle Stewart
Rationale:
  The College Readiness Block Grant (CRBG), established by Chapter 29, Statues of 2016 (Senate Bill 828, Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review), requires (as a condition of receiving funds) local educational agencies (LEAs) to report to the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, by January 1, 2017,on how LEAs will measure the impact of the funds received on their unduplicated pupils’ access and successful matriculation to institutions of higher education, as identified within their plan (as required by Education Code (EC) Section 41580.

 
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The CRBG funds in Scotts Valley, ($75,000),  will be used to ensure that students have equity and access.  The money will be used for the following:

  • Supplement costs for low-income students to pay for International Baccalaureate tests
  • Pay teachers to create and certify classes that are A-G, focusing particularly on honors classes and career pathways. By increasing the number of A-G classes, students have increased opportunity for college readiness and acceptance.
  • Purchase computers and other materials to create a lab in order to support:
  1. A new Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathway in Digital Media Arts (2-4 course pathway that allows students to work with industry to gain a CTE certificate).  The purpose of a CTE certificate is to provide students with academic, technical and employability skills and knowledge to pursue post-secondary training or higher education and enter a career field prepared for ongoing learning.
  2. Pay for certification of teachers for the CTE pathway
  3. Create opportunities for concurrent enrollment, which allows students to take courses at an external institution i.e. community college, university or extension program, while also enrolled in high school.


*These plans are aligned with the goals and services included in the Local Control Accountability Plan, Goal 3.


P.4. MOU between Scotts Valley Unified School District, San Lorenzo Unified School District, and Pacific Elementary School District for Title III funds for English Learners
Speaker:
Michelle Stewart
Rationale:

Part A of Title III is officially known as the English Language Acquisition, Language Enhancement, and Academic Achievement Act. The overarching purpose is to ensure that limited-English-proficient (LEP) students (called English learners under California laws), including immigrant children and youths, attain English proficiency and meet the same challenging academic content and achievement standards that other students are expected to meet. 

LEAs must use Title III funds to implement language instruction educational programs designed to help LEP students achieve standards. The state educational agency (SEA), LEAs, and schools are accountable for increasing the English proficiency and core academic content knowledge of LEP students.

 

The U.S. Department of Education determines the grant award to the states by using a formula based on the number of LEP and immigrant students enrolled in the state. (Title III, Section 3111(c)(3)) There are additional set-aside subgrants for immigrant students: LEAs that have experienced a significant increase (at least two percent) in the number of immigrant children enrolled in public and nonpublic schools in their jurisdiction are eligible for subgrants.

 

To be eligible for a direct-funded LEP student subgrant, LEAs must be scheduled to receive a subgrant of $10,000 or more. LEAs that are scheduled for a subgrant of $10,000 or more will apply though the Consolidated Application, Part I. If an LEA is projected to receive an LEP student subgrant of less than $10,000, the LEA must enter into an agreement to form and/or join a consortium in which the total amount of the subgrants of members of the consortium collectively total $10,000 or more. In the case of a consortium of LEAs, only the lead LEA is the grantee. (Title III, Section 3114). 

The consortium lead LEA will be responsible for acting as the fiscal and programmatic agent for the consortium, and will file the required expenditure reports and maintain fiscal records. The lead provides the member LEAs with programs, services, and products.


 
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Scotts Valley Unified School District will be the lead for the Santa Cruz County Consortium for Title III, including Scotts Valley Unified School District, San Lorenzo Valley Unified School District, and Pacific Elementary School District.
