X.9. EDUCATION SERVICES: (HSD) Approval of Overnight Field Trip for San Rafael High School Junior Varsity and Varsity Cheerleading Teams participation in the United Spirit Association Cheerleading Camp on July 19-22, 2019 in Santa Clara, California.
Quick Summary / Abstract:

This item presents for Board approval of the overnight field trip for San Rafael High School Junior Varsity and Varsity Cheerleading Teams participation in the United Spirit Association Cheerleading Camp in  Santa Clara, California, on July 19-22, 2019 for recommended approval. 


Rationale:

BACKGROUND: The Board of Education recognizes that school-sponsored trips are an important component of a student's development and supplement and enrich the classroom learning experience.  School-sponsored trips may be conducted in connection with the district's course of study or school-related social, educational, cultural, athletic, school band activities, or other extracurricular or co-curricular activities. 

Requests for school-sponsored trips involving out-of-state, out-of-country, or overnight travel shall be submitted to the Superintendent or designee.  The Superintendent or designee shall review the request and make a recommendation to the Board as to whether the request should be approved by the Board. All other school-sponsored trips shall be approved in advance first by the principal and then by the Assistant Superintendent or designee. 

  • No student will be excluded from participation because of lack of sufficient funds.
  • School-sponsored trips for the purpose of swimming or surfing shall not be approved; this includes private or public swimming pools/hot tubs or spas, water parks, beaches, or any other venue where the sole purpose of the trip is for students to swim, surf, or enter the body of water
  • Each student will need their own bed and have evening supervision. (Hotel roll-away beds and inflatable air mattress is acceptable.)

CURRENT CONSIDERATIONS:  Approximately 53 San Rafael High School students will attend along with 5 adult chaperones and 2 coaches. In addition to our chaperones there is a large camp staff which provides supervision to all camp attendees.

ACCOMMODATIONS: The team will be staying at the Santa Clara Hyatt Regency and there will be four cheerleaders per room ratio. Each cheerleader will have their own bed/air mattress or roll away. We will be securing these accommodations through the camp company. 

TRANSPORTATION: Cheerleaders will be transported to and from camp by their own parents or a chartered bus.  





 
Financial Impact:
There would be no cost to the school or district for this trip. The cheerleaders have been and will continue to be fundraising to offset their expenses.  Any remaining costs will be voluntarily paid by the families who are aware of the expenses and are agreeable to paying them. No team member will be excluded from the event due to an inability to pay.

Recommended Motion:

Approval of Overnight Field Trip for San Rafael High School Junior Varsity and Varsity Cheerleading Teams participation in the United Spirit Association Cheerleading Camp on July 19-22, 2019.





X.10. EDUCATION SERVICES: (ESD) Approval of License Renewal for Software from Learning A-Z from June 30, 2019 - June 30, 2021.
Quick Summary / Abstract:

This item presents a license renewal for software from Learning A-Z  from June 30, 2019 - June 30, 2021.

Rationale:

Background: 
Learning A-Z offers literacy-focused resources and tools designed in accordance to research-based best practices and leveled to meet the needs of all students. Proven to be an effective resource for personalizing instruction, strengthening students' expanded literacy skills, and boosting test scores, making teaching more effective and instilling the skills students need. 

Learning A-Z developed products using research-based best practices and input from active and former teachers to ensure quality and effectiveness. Their products create an engaging learning environment that fosters creativity and student growth; they expand literacy beyond reading and writing to include the modern-day skills students require to become college- and career-ready.

Learning A-Z was originally purchased to supplement the materials teachers were using in their classroom, in particular for leveled readers during guided reading and independent reading.  Sites began purchasing these licenses and a couple years ago, given the number of sites using it, Education Services took on this resource. To support SEAL units, we added on Science A-Z, which is NGSS aligned. Principals and coaches provided feedback on this resource and its usage, resulting in the recommended continuation of it.

Current Consideration: 
Staff recommends the Board approve the license renewal for software from Learning A-Z from June 30, 2019 - June 30, 2021.


 
Financial Impact:

Cost of license $69,330.45 to be paid from general funds.

Section V is being updated to add legal cite pursuant to new law (AB 1808) which requires classroom notice on Williams UCP to include health and safety issues in license-exempt California State Preschool Programs. 

All revisions are based on recommended language from the California School Boards Association (CSBA).

X.16. FACILITIES: (ESD/HSD) Approval of Proposal and Contract Agreement Between San Rafael City Schools and School Facilities Consultants for Services July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020
Quick Summary / Abstract:
The Board is presented with a  proposal and contract agreement, for review and recommended approval.      


Rationale:

BACKGROUND:

School Facility Consultants (SFC) is a full-service company that assists school districts, local agencies, architects, and developers in all aspects of school facility planning and financing.  SFC works with school districts to maximize new construction and modernization funding through the State Allocation Board (SAB) process.   SFC staff is available to work with the California Department of Education (CDE) on the new school site and plan approvals.  Since 1985, SFC has successfully assisted more than 200 school districts to obtain billions of dollars in state funding for school construction and modernization.

The Capital Facilities staff has been working with School Facility Consultants for the last several years in obtaining modernization funding and assisting San Rafael City Schools in the completion of our Proposition 51 eligibility.  The District and SFC have maintained an effective partnership with successful completion of the eligibility and application process for Modernization.  In addition, the District will be working with SFC on the application for eligibility for new construction funding at the State.

School Facilities Consultants believes that the District may be eligible for new construction funds under the State program. These funds could be used to replace portable classrooms and construct new buildings on existing sites through new Proposition 51 funding.

CURRENT CONSIDERATIONS

The application process for eligibility for both modernization and new construction funding from the State is complicated, time-consuming and challenging. School Facility Consultants has the knowledge and expertise to assist districts in navigating the forms and procedures as well as working with architects and district Capital Facilities Team to maximize funding eligibility. 

This proposal is for SFC to provide the San Rafael City Schools assistance in gathering the appropriate information, preparing the forms necessary for determining the maximum eligibility for state funding of new school construction and for submission of all paperwork.  In addition, SFC will monitor State Allocation Board (SAB) and Office of Public School Construction (OPSC) legislative committees on issues that may affect school district applications.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS:

The proposal for services fee is on a time and materials basis with a not-to-exceed amount of $20,000.

XI.2. PERSONNEL: (ESD) Approval of Resolution #1819-36 – Resolution Releasing Temporary Certificated Employees
Quick Summary / Abstract:

Approval of Resolution #1819-36 - Resolution Releasing Temporary Certificated Employees.
