K.3. APPROVAL AND AWARD OF CONTRACT FOR PRJUSD FLAMSON MIDDLE SCHOOL CLASSROOM ADDITION BID 18-04
Speaker:
B. Pawlowski
Quick Summary / Abstract:
District staff requested bids for the Flamson Middle School Classroom Addition Bid 18-04 on November 27, 2018. From PRJUSD's Planetbids.com vendor portal, 17 contractors were notified, 3 general contractors obtained the project bid manual & specifications, and on the bid due-date of January 8, 2019, 5 bids were received from District pre-qualified contractors. The District received a bid protest arguing that Klassen's bid is non-responsive because one of its subcontractors, JJ Fisher Construction, Inc. ("JJ Fisher"), is listed for concrete and rebar but is not properly licensed in these areas. The District has ascertained, however, that this protest in fact raises in fact raises a responsibility issue, as it presents information that does not appear on the face of the bid. Further, in response to this protest, Klassen has expressed its intent to, upon award of the contract, substitute JJ Fisher with a properly-licensed subcontractor as permitted by Public Contract Code Section 4107. Thus, the District has determined that, despite this oversight, Klassen is nonetheless a responsible bidder, and therefore the issue is waived.
Recommended Motion:
Staff recommends to award a contract for the Flamson Middle School Classroom Addition Bid 18-04 to Klassen Corporation in the amount of $5,297,000, and authorize the Superintendent or designee to sign all necessary contract documents.

The program will be used to track all fund resources and expenditures to give easy-to-understand reports during fiscal audits, Citizens' Oversight Committee reviews, and Board updates.

K.5. APPROVAL AND ADOPTION OF RESOLUTION NO. 19-12 AUTHORIZING APPROVAL AND SUPPORT OF FULL DAY KINDERGARTEN FACILITIES GRANT PROGRAM APPLICATION
Speaker:
B. Pawlowski
Quick Summary / Abstract:
The Full-Day Kindergarten Facilities Grant Program (FDKFGP) is a $100 million site-by-site grant program established on June 27, 2018, by Assembly Bill 1808 to provide funding to school districts that lack adequate full-day kindergarten facilities. The FDKFGP provides funding based on School Facility Program New Construction and Modernization grant amounts. Proposed projects must increase the number of kindergarten classrooms meeting current design requirements at a site, either through the construction of new kindergarten facilities or the retrofitting of an existing facility that was not originally designed as a kindergarten classroom. To participate in the FDKFGP, a school district must have a board resolution providing approval for full-day kindergarten instruction and the District must meet the program requirements. With Board approval, staff will be submitting an application to provide funding related to improvements at The Arts Academy at Bauer Speck.

K.9. APPROVAL OF PUBLIC AGENCY RETIREMENT SERVICES (PARS) SUPPLEMENTARY RETIREMENT PLAN (SRP) FOR STAFF
Speaker:
J. Gaviola
Quick Summary / Abstract:
The Paso Robles Joint Unified School District has worked with Public Agency Retirement Services (PARS) to design a Supplementary Retirement Plan (SRP), a retirement incentive that may encourage senior Certificated Non-Management, Certificated Management, and Classified Management employees to retire early. The goal of the program is to generate savings, or at a minimum, no cost to the District by increasing the number of retirements in the 2018-19 school year. The SRP would provide participating Certificated Non-Management, Certificated Management, and Classified Management employees with a tax-qualified annuity that costs 60% of their final year salary. Classified Non-Management employees are being offered 40% of their final year salary. This annuity is paid over a five-year period. The program requires all employees to resign from District employment at the end of the school year (no later than June 30, 2019). Approximately 236 employees are eligible for the offer. 40 staff members have elected to take the PARS incentive (30 teachers, 1 Certificated Management, 7 Classified Staff, and 2 Confidential/Management). With all assumptions calculated (incentive, attrition differential, and benefits) and 4 FTE non-replacement: the District will save the following amounts: Year 1: $498,048 over 3 Years: $1,201,425 over 5 Years: $1,608,738
Recommended Motion:
Staff recommends approval.
Rationale:
Cost savings and incentive for employees
 
Financial Impact:
Cost Savings: Year 1: $498,048 over 3 Years: $1,201,425 over 5 Years: $1,608,738

PARS SUMMARY
K.10. APPROVAL OF SCHOOL ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT CARD (SARC)
Speaker:
J. Gaviola
Quick Summary / Abstract:
By February 1 of each year, every school in California is required by state law to publish a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The SARC contains information about the condition and performance of each California public school. Under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), all local educational agencies (LEAs) are required to prepare a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), which describes how they intend to meet annual school-specific goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities. Additionally, data reported in an LCAP is to be consistent with data reported in the SARC.
Recommended Motion:
Staff recommends approval
Rationale:
In November 1988, California voters passed Proposition 98, also known as The Classroom Instructional Improvement and Accountability Act. This ballot initiative provides California's public schools with a stable source of funding. In return, all public schools in California are required annually to prepare SARCs and disseminate them to the public. SARCs are intended to provide the public with important information about each public school and to communicate a school's progress in achieving its goals.

K.11. APPROVAL OF CAREER TECHNICAL EDUCATION INCENTIVE GRANT: WELDING TRAILER
Speaker:
J. Gaviola
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Student engagement and success are two critical factors that are continuously at the forefront of thought and development within the Agriculture Mechanics pathway at Paso Robles High School. Allowing students to showcase skills and abilities obtained throughout the progression of instruction in the welding courses comes in a variety of forms. In the summer of 2017, we began a partnership with one of the community centers in Paso Robles that serves students from our minority populations. This partnership consisted of having the welding program bring equipment and materials to their location and having our high school students teach and work with younger students (grades 4-8) from our community on developing knowledge and hands-on welding application skills. The need to expand our abilities in offering this community outreach has grown considerably over the past year and a half, as we continue to be invited to work with members of our youth at the community center as well as our local junior high, elementary schools, and community activity days. The welding trailer is designed to be equipped for multiple welding processes including Shielded Metal Arc, Gas Metal Arc, Gas Tungsten Arc, Flux Core Arc, Plasma Arc Cutting, Oxy-Acetylene Cutting, fabrication and construction tools, and eventually virtual welding education using virtual welding simulations as well as computer-assisted real-time welding applications. The dollar amount for the purchase is below the 2019 bid limit of $92,600 and staff obtained a quote from one other vendor. Staff recommended CDE approval on 12/19/2019.
Recommended Motion:
Staff recommends approval.
