K.23. APPROVE Additional Schools' Addendum to the 2016/2017 Single Plan for Student Achievement
Rationale:

The Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) is a plan of action to raise the academic performance of all students to the level of performance goals established under federal, state and local programs.

The contents of the school plans are aligned with the Local Education Agency (LEA) plan and school goals for improving student achievement.  School goals are based upon an analysis of verifiable district data; including local measures of pupil achievement, CAHSEE passage rates, UC A-G Completion, graduation rates, drop-out rates, CELDT scores and AP passages rates.
 
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The following Twin Rivers Unified School District school sites have revised their Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) to match Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS): Foothill Ranch Middle School, Martin Luther King Jr., Ridgepoint, Rio Linda Prep., Smythe, Strauch, Oakdale, and Woodridge. These school sites have completed an Addendum to the 2016/2017 SPSA as shown on the attached matrix. The completed plans are also available for review.

K.26. APPROVE 2017/2018 Student Meal Price Increase
Rationale:

In December of 2010, President Obama signed The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (Public Law 111-296) making many changes to Child Nutrition Programs. One of the provisions in this act, “Equity in School Lunch Pricing in the National School Lunch Program”, states that effective July 1, 2011, school districts will be required to increase the cost of their paid lunch prices until the average weighted revenue per lunch matches the federal reimbursement rate, which is adjusted for inflation every year.

Using a tool designed to calculate weighted price increases, the current average price our students pay for meals, compared to the federal requirement, indicates that we must increase the price we charge our students who do not qualify for meal benefits.

 
Quick Summary / Abstract:

School districts are required to increase the cost of their paid lunch prices if the average weighted revenue per lunch is below the federal reimbursement rate, which is adjusted for inflation every year. Included in the Board packet is a schedule of the proposed 2017/2018 meal prices and how they will compare to other school districts in the Sacramento region. Administration recommends approval of the 2017/2018 student meal price increase for Twin Rivers Unified School District.
