h. Approval of Resolution #19/20-18, Worker's Compensation and General Liability Coverage for Volunteer Personnel and Revision to Board Policy 1240, Volunteer Assistance (Consent Item)
Comments:

The Gilroy Unified School District is part of the Alliance of Schools for Cooperative Insurance Programs (ASCIP).  ASCIP offers its member districts Worker's Compensation and General Liability insurance as part of the base premium it charges all its member districts, so there is no added cost to the District for the extended coverage.

To extend the coverage, ASCIP requires a Board Resolution and the following section to be added to the current Board Policy 1240, Volunteering Assistance:

Workers' Compensation and General Liability Insurance

The Board desires to provide a safe environment for volunteers, and to minimize the district's and volunteers' exposure to liability. Upon the adoption of a resolution by the Board, volunteers shall be entitled to workers' compensation benefits for any injury sustained while engaged in the performance of service for the district (Labor Code 3364.5) and general liability while acting solely within the course and scope of their duties and while acting at the direction of, and performing services for, or on behalf of, the District.

District legal counsel has reviewed both the Resolution and the proposed changes to the BP 1240.  For reference, the added text to BP1240 is in red font.










Financial Impact:

Premium rates will not change as a result of extending the workers' compensation and general liability insurance to volunteers.  




Recommended Motion:

Board approval is recommended for Resolution #19/20-18, Worker's Compensation and General Liability Coverage for Volunteer Personnel and Revision to Board Policy 1240, Volunteer Assistance.

b. 2020 CSBA Delegate Assembly Election (Region 20 - Santa Clara County) (Action Item)
Quick Summary / Abstract:

Annually, members of California governing boards elect members to the California School Board Association (CSBA) Delegate Assembly. There are currently  four (4) vacancies in Region 20.

Rationale:

CSBA's Delegate Assembly is a vital link in the association's governance structure. The Delegate Assembly sets the general policy direction for the association. Working with local districts, county offices, the Board of Directors and Executive Committee, Delegates ensure that the association reflects the interests of school districts and county offices of education throughout the state.

The Delegate Assembly is made up of approximately 270 Delegates who are elected by local board members in 21 geographic regions throughout the state. Delegates serve two-year terms beginning April 1. They meet twice a year to conduct business, and may also meet with the other Delegates and the Director within their region. Furthermore, they participate in CSBA events and they maintain contact with local boards in their region.

To be eligible to serve on CSBA's Delegate Assembly, a board member must:

  • be a trustee of a district or county office of education that is a current member of CSBA; and
  • be a trustee of a district or county office of education within the geographic region or subregion which the Delegate will represent.
 
Comments:

Voting for Delegates is an action of the entire board rather than individual board members; therefore, it is done at a public meeting and requires a majority vote.

Each board may vote for as many persons as there are positions to be filled within the region or subregion.

Recommended Motion:

The board is requested to instruct the Superintendent as to how to mark the ballot for CSBA Delegate Assembly Region 20.
