VII.4. PUBLIC HEARING (ESD/HSD): Public Input Session On Draft Trustee Area Boundary Maps
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Board will conduct a public hearing to gather input on draft area boundary maps. Maps are attached to this item. 




Rationale:

Rationale:

Board members are currently elected in “at-large” elections, where each member is elected by voters throughout the District.  The California Voting Rights Act (“CVRA”) prohibits the use of “at-large” elections in certain circumstances.  By-trustee-area” elections, in which members are elected by voters in geographical subdivisions of the jurisdiction, are immune from challenge under the CVRA.

At its meeting on March 25, 2019, the Board adopted Resolution 1819-24 indicating its intent to transition from at-large to by-trustee area elections. On April 30, 2019, the Board held its first public hearing as part of the process to adopt a trustee area boundary map in order to transition from at-large to by-trustee area elections. It held a second public hearing at its meeting on May 13 and held community workshop at Bahia Vista Elementary School on June 18.  

Following these public hearings the District posted draft trustee area boundary maps on its website.  The Board has held public hearings on the draft maps during its June 24 and July 15 meetings, followed by community workshops on July 17 and 29.  Tonight, the Board will hold its third public hearing regarding the draft maps.

During this hearing, the public is asked to provide input regarding the composition of potential trustee area boundaries. 




 
Financial Impact:
There is no cost associated with this public hearing of draft boundary maps.

VII.5. PUBLIC HEARING: (ESD/HSD) Public Input Session Regarding State Board of Education Waiver Request
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Board will conduct a Public Hearing to gather input on the State Board of Education Waiver Request. 

Rationale:

Rationale:

The Board is conducting this public hearing as part of its process to request a waiver from the State Board of Education.  

At its March 25, 2019 meeting, the Board adopted Resolution 1819-24 indicating its intent to transition from at-large to by-trustee area elections, including the adoption of a trustee area boundary map.  

Under the Education Code, final adoption of by-trustee area elections (following approval by the Board and the Marin County Committee on School District Organization) would turn on an election among District voters.  Such an election, however, can be costly and delay implementation of the election system.  Likely for this reason, over two hundred school districts which have made this election system transition have sought, and been granted, a waiver from the State Board of Education of the Education Code provisions which require an election.  

The Board is holding this public hearing to gather input prior to consideration of the resolution requesting such a waiver from the State Board of Education.  While the Board is still in the process of adopting the transition to by-trustee areas and developing a trustee area boundary map, it is considering the waiver request resolution at this time to provide the State Board of Education sufficient time to consider the request.



 
Financial Impact:

None.

VII.6. BOARD BUSINESS: (ESD/HSD) Adoption of Resolution No. 1920-1 Requesting State Board Of Education Waive Election Requirement To Alter Election System
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Board is presented with Resolution No. 1920-1 Requesting State Board Of Education Waive Election Requirement To Alter Election System, for review and recommended approval. 

Rationale:

Rationale: 
At its March 25, 2019 meeting, the Board adopted Resolution 1819-24 indicating its intent to transition from at-large to by-trustee area elections, including the adoption of a trustee area boundary map.  

Under the Education Code, final adoption of by-trustee area elections (following approval by the Board and the Marin County Committee on School District Organization) would turn on an election among District voters.  Such an election, however, can be costly and delay implementation of the election system.  Likely for this reason, over two hundred school districts which have made this election system transition have sought, and been granted, a waiver from the State Board of Education of the Education Code provisions which require an election.  

Following receipt of input at the earlier public hearing, the Board will consider a resolution requesting that the State Board of Education waive the election requirement prior to implementation of the by-trustee area election system currently being developed by the Board.

 
Financial Impact:

The District's request to waive an election would save the cost of election fees for both the elementary and high school districts, if granted by the SBE. 

Recommended Motion:

The Board is presented with Resolution No. 1920-1 Requesting State Board Of Education Waive Election Requirement To Alter Election System, for review and recommended approval.

VII.7. PRESENTATION: (ESD) Short Elementary School- Next Steps and Community Engagement
Quick Summary / Abstract:

Staff will share an update on planned next steps for Short Elementary School, specifically an overview discussion on the process to engage a stakeholder group to brainstorm, discuss and plan a recommendation to the Board about the long-term plans for Short School. The committee will be charged with reviewing and discussing the various options, considerations, challenges and opportunities as they prepare their recommendations related to the possible closure of Short School and the transition of students as well as the potential future use of the Short facility. The stakeholder group would meet throughout the fall and make recommendations to the Board, ideally by December 2019.

The presentation will also include a review of previous reports and updates on enrollment, recent outreach with the Short School community and the Board direction at the end of 2018-19 school year. As we've shared in previous Board presentations, we are paying close attention to our enrollment numbers and projections. Given that Short Elementary School does not have an attendance area, they are the elementary school most impacted by any change in enrollment. Our kindergarten enrollment has shown that the enrollment patterns have continued, and we do not anticipate needing a kindergarten class again at Short next school year. We want to be very mindful of how the size of a school can impact student learning, family engagement, the overall success of the school community and more.

Trustees, staff or members of the public may request that an item be pulled for discussion prior to Capital Facilities Program Consent Agenda approval)
VIII.1. CAPITAL FACILITIES PROGRAM: (ESD) Approval of Amendment to Construction Management Agreement — Cumming Construction Management, Inc.
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Board  is presented with an Amendment to the Construction Management Agreement with Cumming, Inc. for the Elementary District projects.




Rationale:

Construction is nearing completion on most of the main Elementary District projects, however, the Venetia Valley project will continue through December 2020.  The District will need Construction Management for the duration of the project.

Background: 

Cumming, Inc. was selected as the Construction Manager for the Elementary District projects after a Competitive Selection process completed by the Capital Facilities team in 2018.  The Board approved their contract for Construction Management on March 26, 2018.  Cumming’s contract for Construction Management includes Davidson Science Building, Laurel Dell New Construction and Renovations, Laurel Dell Temporary Housing (Davidson Annex), Glenwood Multi-Purpose Building, San Pedro New Construction and Renovations, Venetia Valley New Classrooms and Multi-Purpose, and Venetia Valley Temporary Housing.

Current Considerations:

All of the major projects are on schedule to complete by December of 2019.  The Venetia Valley New Classroom & Multi-Purpose Building got a later start, and is not scheduled to complete until January 2021.  Cumming and the Capital Facilities Team completed a review of staffing and recommend the approval of an Additional Service for a full time Construction Manager for the one year needed to complete the project. 



 
Financial Impact:

$136,843.  The original contract amount for Cumming was $2,308,130 and with this amendment, the adjusted contract amount will be $2,444,973.



Recommended Motion:

Approval of the Amendment to the Construction Management Agreement with Cumming Construction Management, Inc.

VIII.2. CAPITAL FACILITIES PROGRAM: (ESD/HSD) Approval of Energy Manager Fellowship with Strategic Energy Innovations (“SEI”) for Prop. 39 Projects
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Board of Education is presented with a recommendation for approval of a current Energy Manager Fellow for the District’s sustainability energy initiatives.

The purpose of this work is to continue efforts in facilitating energy and cost saving measures involved in the District Bond Programs.



Rationale:

Background:

On December 18, 2017, the San Rafael City Schools’ (District) Board of Education approved an Energy Manager Fellowship Agreement with Strategic Energy Innovations (SEI) in an effort to seek energy and cost saving solutions for the Bond Measures A & B Programs.  The fellow hired through SEI has been successful in collaborating with the Capital Facilities Team and campus staff and student representatives from the high schools in researching ways to improve and enhance energy and environmental sustainability efforts.  

Current Considerations:

The original Prop. 39 Energy Manager funds are now exhausted and the Capital Facilities Team is requesting approval for a supplemental fellowship to continue addressing the myriad of energy and environmental sustainability opportunities in the education system.  This work presents a distinct opportunity to shape sustainability practices and to influence efforts of energy usage reduction goals, especially through the coordination of student sustainability input into the district’s bond programs.

SEI will continue to help support this Energy Manager Fellowship role, and assist with facilitating their scope of work with the District.  Through this new Energy Manager Fellowship role, SEI will include all of the schools involved in the Bond Programs in energy saving efforts, resulting in cost savings.



 
Financial Impact:

$40,000 funded by Measure B bond funds.

21-9010-0-6215-00-0000-8500-700-000-491 (HSD) - $40,000



Recommended Motion:

Approval of the continued collaboration with Strategic Energy Innovations to provide a current Energy Manager Fellow for bond program energy and cost saving initiatives.

VIII.3. CAPITAL FACILITIES PROGRAM: (ESD/HSD) Approval of Amendment No. 3 to Independent Consultant Agreement for Contractor Pre-Qualification Financial Review – Chavan Associates
Quick Summary / Abstract:

Staff recommends review and approval from the Board of Education for Amendment No. 3 to the Independent Consultant Agreement with Chavan Associates for financial review services of additional vendor pre-qualification packages.

The purpose of this amendment is to provide financial review of additional and annual contractor applications. 



Rationale:

Public bidding requires a prequalification of financials for all school district projects utilizing a Lease-Leaseback delivery method; and projects utilizing state funding with a contract value of over $1 million.

Background:

On September 11, 2017, the San Rafael City Schools (“District”) entered into an agreement with Chavan Associates for specialized financial review services as a requirement of the Pre-Qualification process of Prime Contractors, required under Public Contract Code Section 20111.6.  This original approved contract with Chavan Associates included services for the evaluation of firm revenues, expenses, assets, liabilities, net worth, working capital and bonding capacity. 

The Board of Education has since approved supplemental financial review services from Chavan Associates for additional financial reviews. 

Current Considerations:

To date, a total of 164 applications were processed under the original contract and subsequent amendments.  We anticipate 100 financial reviews for the 2019-20 fiscal year.  These reviews will include annual renewals of those that have reached the one year application expiration date as well as new applications specific to Design-Build entities.

VIII.4. CAPITAL FACILITIES PROGRAM: (ESD) Ratification of Change Order No. 1 to the Contract for Swinerton Builders for the Laurel Dell Elementary School New Construction and Modernization Project
Quick Summary / Abstract:

Capital Facilities staff is recommending approval of Change Order No. 1 to the Swinerton Builders contract for the Laurel Dell Elementary School New Construction and Modernization Project.



Rationale:

Changes to the work on District Facilities projects which are negotiated during construction require approval by the Board of Education.

Background:

The Laurel Dell New Construction and Modernization Project is underway.  During the course of the work to date, there have been changes in scope related to civil, landscape, and minor equipment modifications.  In addition, existing site infrastructure with unforeseen conditions required upgrades.  Senior Director, Dr. Dan Zaich, provided field authorization to keep the project moving. 

Current Considerations:

Change Order No. 1, attached, consists of sixteen Potential Change Orders (“PCO’s”) which increase the contract price by $208,181.67.  This increase in price provided the necessary civil and landscape revisions along with required equipment and hardware modifications.  The specific scope of each PCO is noted on the Change Order document. 

The internal project contingency of 25% has already been exhausted due to unforeseen conditions.



 
Financial Impact:

$208,181.67.  Adjusted contract amount with Change Order No. 1:  $14,231,445.67.  Staff will bring an updated Program Budget to a subsequent meeting.

IX.7. FINANCE (ESD/HSD): Approval to Award the Purchase of Verkada Smart Video Security Cameras for All School Sites to AMS.Net
Quick Summary / Abstract:

Over the last year, District staff have investigated and tested several surveillance camera for functionality, ease of use, cost, installation and serviceability. Based on this process, Verkada cameras was selected as the best product for SRCS. This attached proposal will provide a district wide campus security initiative and upgrade aimed at improving incident response time and investigative capabilities. 

In order to provide limited surveillance capacity at all our school sites, staff recommend purchasing the following cameras and associated mounting hardware:

Elementary/Middle School sites will receive Thirty (30) D50-HW Outdoor Dome Cameras and Twenty (20) D80-HW Fisheye Cameras.

High School sites will receive Sixty (60) D50-HW Dome and Thirty-five (35) D80-HW Fisheye Cameras. 



Rationale:

School districts of all sizes choose Verkada to simplify and strengthen their physical security operations. Choos­ing Verkada means no longer having to maintain outdated equipment like NVRs and DVR s, parsing through hours of unnecessary footage, or jumping through hoops to get access to cameras in emergency situations. With Verkada, the footage is always accessible, analyzed, and safely stored on camera as well as in the cloud.

Recently an aggressive AMS.Net sales campaign has occurred with a discount of approximately 20% off their piggy-back bid with Merced County. This attached proposal will provide a district wide campus security initiative and upgrade aimed at improving incident response time and investigative capabilities. 

At our TK-5 schools we currently have no surveillance cameras and DMS has limited coverage. Upon Board approval, all the Elementary sites will have cameras outside the office, the parking lot and overview of the main playground areas. The DMS system will be upgraded with some additional outside cameras included.

Our current high schools surveillance cameras are no longer available and are not serviceable. Upon Board approval, the high schools current systems will be upgraded. For a period of time, we will have a hybrid system using any existing cameras until they are no longer functioning. When these limited number of cameras finally break, they will be replaced with a Verkada camera. 

Current Consideration:

Elementary/Middle School sites will receive Thirty (30) D50-HW Outdoor Dome Cameras and Twenty (20) D80-HW Fisheye Cameras.

High School sites will receive Sixty (60) D50-HW Dome and Thirty-five (35) D80-HW Fisheye Cameras. 

 
Financial Impact:

The County of Merced awarded a piggy-backable competitive bid to AMS.net under a FOCUS contract #2015109. During the month of July, AMS offered a 20% discount off this FOCUS contract which will result in a savings of $21,332 for the ESD and $39,218 for the HSD. In order to take advantage of this offer, the SRCS issued a purchase orders under this special incentive pricing pending approval of the SRCS Board of Education on 8/12/19. Upon Board approval, the PO will be executed and product will be delivered and installed.

High School District: $188, 296.20 Account Code: 1-8150-0-6450.00-0000-8300-700-255-000

Elementary School District : $102,501.28 Account Code: 01-8150-0-6450.00-0000-8300-700-255-000

IX.8. FINANCE: (ESD/HSD) Approval of Memorandum of Understanding Between the County of Marin Health and Human Services Department and San Rafael City Schools for Sharing of School Meal Applications with CalFresh for the Period of August 1, 2019 through June 30, 2024
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Board is presented with a MOU between the County of Marin Health and Human Services and San Rafael City Schools for sharing of National School Lunch Program (NSLP) School Meal Applications with CalFresh, for review and recommended approval. 




Rationale:

BACKGROUND:

Assembly Bill 402 is intended to increase the participation of Free/Reduced eligible student households in the CalFresh program. Many students are eligible for the CalFresh program, but are not currently receiving benefits. AB 402 allows LEAs to share Free/Reduced meal application information from eligible student households with local County Welfare Departments to determine CalFresh eligibility. Among the benefits of AB 402 for both households and LEAs, are more free/reduced eligible students receiving CalFresh benefits, thus ensuring that they have meals outside of school, and more students being directly certified as eligible for free meal benefits.

CURRENT CONSIDERATION: 

LEAs may share students’ approved meal application information with the local Calfresh office if the LEA and the Calfresh office:

  1. Enter into a MOU that specifies the roles and responsibilities and describes the method for sharing
  2. Obtain written consent from the parent or guardian approving the information-sharing.

In 2016, SRCS executed this similar MOU for a 3 year pilot period. This MOU resulted in mutual benefits to our community, parents, students, County of Marin and SRCS. Staff is recommending approval to renew this MOU through June 30, 2024.  




 
Financial Impact:

None.

Recommended Motion:

Approval of the MOU.

IX.9. EDUCATION SERVICES: (ESD) Approval of Renewal of Contractor Agreement for Special Services for Marin Head Start's Pre-K to 3rd Grade Initiative Support for Venetia Valley Elementary School for the 2019-2020 School Year
Quick Summary / Abstract:

This item presents Approval of Renewal of Contractor Agreement for Special Services for Marin Head Start's Pre-K to 3rd Grade Initiative Support for Venetia Valley Elementary School for the 2019-2020 School Year, for Board review and recommended approval.



Rationale:

BACKGROUND:   The Marin Community Foundation launched a multi-strategy initiative in Marin County aimed at closing the educational achievement gap for all students. One strategy of the initiative is focused on improving educational outcomes of low-income students and students of color through support of school transformation. A second is focused on early success in school, serving students in pre-school through grade 3.

CURRENT CONSIDERATIONS:  That the Board approves the Independent Contractor Agreement for Special Services with Marin Head Start and San Rafael City Schools and Venetia Valley Elementary School for Pre-K to 3rd Grade Initiative. Marin Head Start will provide Venetia Valley Elementary School with the following:

  • Participation on the Design Team
  • Hiring and support for Community Engagement, Family Literacy, and Extended Learning staff in collaboration with the Principal
  • Provision of Community Engagement supplies and materials as supported by the budget
  • Family Advocates will be invited to participate in MHS Family Advocate training and meetings.

Principal and Head Start Director will meet regularly at agreed upon times and/or as necessary to ensure the progress and quality of services provided.

Staff recommends approval of this Independent Contractor Agreement for Special Services with Marin Head Start to provide Pre K to 3rd grade initiative support to Venetia Valley Elementary School for the 2019-2020 school year.

Quick Summary / Abstract:

This item presents a Memorandum of Understanding between San Rafael City Schools and 10,000 Degrees, Academic Support for the purpose of maintaining volunteers as tutors during the 2019-2020 school year, for Board review and recommended approval. 


Rationale:

Background:

In that time, over 4,000 community volunteer tutors have been placed in schools and homework centers in SRCS.  School-based tutoring and mentoring programs have long been understood to help youth achieve educational goals, validate their innate abilities, and provide guidance for becoming successful adults. The relationship between an adult mentor and a child can be an undeniably powerful tool in maximizing the student’s ability to realize his or her potential, and a gratifying experience for the adult. The program currently provides volunteer tutors at all SRCS sites, with an emphasis on sites with a large proportion of high need students (ELL and students from low income families).

Current Consideration: 
10,000 Degrees Academic Support will recruit, screen, train, place and support volunteer tutors in classrooms in most San Rafael schools, with a focus on the highest need sites: Bahia Vista, Coleman, Laurel Dell, San Pedro, Short, Venetia Valley, Davidson, San Rafael HS and Terra Linda HS. 10,000 Degrees Academic Support currently has 122 volunteers placed at these schools, representing over 50% of 10,000 Degrees volunteers overall.
