6.1.3. Data Exchange Agreement with John W. Gardner Center for Youth and Their Communities at Stanford University
Rationale:

The John W. Gardner Center (JGC) has developed the Youth Data Archive of matched longitudinal administrative data for conducting policy analyses for County leaders, school districts and practitioners.  Policy questions to be addressed using the Youth Data Archive are developed in collaboration with participating public agencies and representatives of local community-based organizations. 

Mental and behavioral health issues among children and youth are becoming increasingly prevalent and many needs remain undiagnosed.  Less than half of children receive treatment for the mental health challenges they face and schools are increasingly in the de facto position of detecting and responding to students' unmet mental health needs.  The Teen Mental Health Project - a partnership between San Mateo Union High School District, Peninsula Health Care District, and the Stanford Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences’ Center for Youth Mental Health Well Being has been working collectively for the past three years, and has identified a potential opportunity to improve the mental health of high school students.  The JGC is joining this partnership to engage in actionable research for student transitioning between elementary, middle and high school to: 1) analyze trends, 2) identify predictive factors that may relate to positive transitions or indicate students at risk, and 3)collaborate with Youth Mental Health to identify opportunities for support and intervention.  This team has requested the participation of partner districts including the SMFCSD.



 
Recommended Motion:

IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES APPROVE A DATA EXCHANGE WITH THE JOHN W. GARDNER CENTER TO ANSWER RESEARCH QUESTIONS TO HELP ADDRESS MENTAL HEALTH CHALLENGES AND BOLSTER THE LARGER COLLABORATIVE EFFORTS TO IMPROVE MENTAL HEALTH AND STUDENT SUCCESS ACROSS ELEMENTARY/MIDDLE/ AND HIGH SCHOOLS.

6.1.4. Request for Allowance of Attendance Due to Emergency Conditions (Form J-13A)
Rationale:

The Request for Allowance of Attendance Due to Emergency Conditions, Form J-13A is used to obtain approval, from the California Department of Education (CDE), of attendance and instruction time credit under one or more of the following conditions: 1) When one or more schools were closed because of conditions described in Education Code Section 41422, 2) When one or more schools were kept open but experienced a material decrease in attendance pursuant to  Education Code Section 46392, and 3) When attendance records have been lost or destroyed as described in Education Code Section 46391. 

The CDE’s approval of the J-13A, combined with other attendance records, serves to document the local education agency’s compliance with instructional time laws and provide authority to maintain school for less than the required instructional days and minutes without incurring a fiscal penalty to the agency’s Local Control Funding Formula funding.

The San Mateo-Foster City School District closed all schools on Friday, November 16, 2018 due to extremely high, unhealthy air quality caused by the Camp Fire in Butte County.  The area had been experiencing fluctuating unhealthy air quality for the two previous days, and the District was implementing Shelter in Place procedures to limit student outdoor exposure.  The air quality continued to deteriorate through the afternoon of November 15, 2018 and it was determined that the District would close schools on Friday, November 16, 2018.  The District consulted with San Mateo County Office of Education, as well as other districts in county prior to taking this action.  Schools re-opened on Monday, November 19, 2018.

Rationale:

Pursuant to Education Codes 33219 and 42127, the governing board of each school district shall adopt a budget on or before July 1 of each year, using the State-adopted Criteria and Standards and in the format prescribed by the Superintendent of Public Instruction.

9.2. Timeline for Issuance of Measure X Series B Bond FundsWas edited within 72 hours of the Meeting
Rationale:

The District issued $74M in Measure X Series A bond funds in March 2015.  Series B, which would include the remaining $74M, was originally planned to be issued in the fall of 2019.  For a variety of reasons, including the additional time required to value engineer, re-scope and redesign the projects as a result of unprecedented cost escalation, other unforeseen project challenges, and changes in project delivery method for the new elementary school, the Phase I projects start dates were delayed from their original timeline.  While Phase I projects are presently under construction, this later start has impacted the start of the Phase II projects and the timeline for issuing the Series B funding for Measure X. 

Staff will present information on issuing Series B that meets the three year spend down rule and provides access to funding as planning for Phase II projects begins.
