XI.a. Discussion and Approval of Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
Rationale:

The LCAP and the district budget were presented at a public hearing on June 16, 2016. The LCAP must be approved by the local school board at the same meeting, but prior to adoption of the district budget. The Beverly Hills Unified School District LCAP, followed by the budget, is presented for approval. Not later than five days after adoption of the LCAP, the governing board shall file the LCAP with the Los Angeles County superintendent of schools by July 1, 2016.

As part of the LCFF, school districts, COEs, and charter schools are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) beginning on July 1, 2015, using a template that was adopted by the California State Board of Education (SBE) in January 2014. In addition, the SBE is required to adopt evaluation rubrics to assist LEAs and oversight entities in evaluating strengths, weaknesses, areas that require improvement, technical assistance needs, and where interventions are warranted on or before October 1, 2015. Subsequent revisions to the template or evaluation rubrics are required to be approved by the SBE by January 31 before the fiscal year in which the template or rubric would be used. The LCAP is required to identify goals and measure progress for student subgroups across eight state priority areas.  Districts must include in their LCAP  (1) actions, services and expenditures for all students and subgroups and (2) additional actions and services for “unduplicated pupils” including low-income students, English learners, foster youth and redesignated English learners. The superintendent must review the Single Plan for Student Achievement from school sites to ensure the actions in the LCAP are consistent with strategies in school plans submitted pursuant to education code 64001.

XIV. PLANNING AND FACILITIES
XIV.a. Approval of Resolution No. 2015-2016-055 Allowing for Contract with CDW Government LLC to Purchase Data Network Equipment Under State of California Leveraged Procurement Agreements Pursuant to Public Contract Code Section 10298(b) and Approval of Purchase of Equipment for Horace Mann Building B
Rationale:

California Public Contract Code Section 10298(b) allows the District to make purchases under State Leveraged Procurement Agreements (LPAs) without limitation on size of orders or requirement for competitive bidding.  State LPAs include, but are not limited to, California Multiple Award Schedules (CMAS) and NSPO (National Association of State Procurement Officials) ValuePoint Cooperative Agreements.

Staff obtained proposals from two (2) resellers able to furnish data network equipment under these LPAs, and have selected CDW Government LLC (CDW-G) based on the lower price for identical equipment. The current proposals from CDW-G total $313,355.72; an additional proposal is pending for some peripheral equipment, and other incidentals may be needed to complete the work, so staff is requesting the Board to approve an amount not to exceed $340,000.00 for the purchase of the Data Network Equipment.

XIV.b. Approval to Cancel the Request for Proposal (RFP) for the Horace Mann School Building B Voice-Over IIP Telephone System
Rationale:

Previously, the Board approved Resolution No.: 2015-2016-031 to procure the Horace Mann School Building B Voice over IP (VoIP) Telephone System as set forth in Public Contract Code Section 20118.2 and therefore, qualify for procurement in accordance with Public Contract Code Section 20118.2(d).

On March 31, 2016 a Request for Proposals (RFP) 2016/002 for Horace Mann School Building B VoIP System was issued.  The RFP was published on the District website and it was also published in both the Beverly Hills Weekly and the Beverly Hills Courier.  Two firms responded to the RFP.  The price difference between the two bids was a factor of about 4 to 1.  After lengthy, detailed discussions between the Facilities and IT Staff, it was determined that it would be in the District’s best interest to postpone the procurement of the new phone system and use a temporary solution by matching the existing District phone system.  The cost of the temporary solution for the phones at Horace Mann School is estimated to be $20,000.  One of the determining factors was the opportunity of possibility piggybacking on the City of Beverly Hills Avaya phone system.  Within the next year, the District will proceed to negotiate an agreement with the City of Beverly Hills to provide the District phone system or reissue the Horace Mann School Voice-Over-IP (VoIP) System RFP to select a permanent solution.


 
XIV.c. Approval of Amendment No. 8 to the Agreement with HMC Architects for Architectural/Engineering Services to Complete the Construction Services Phase of the Make Ready Project at El Rodeo School
Rationale:

In April 2011, the Board approved an agreement with HMC Architects for design of the Modernization and New Construction at El Rodeo School.  HMC was since requested to design a Make Ready Project that involves the construction of new access ramps and a temporary exit stairs.  It is necessary to have HMC provide Construction Administration services for the Make Ready Project.  Staff has met with DLR and discussed the required fees for this scope of work and the attached proposal represents the agreed upon services.

This amendment is to compensate HMC for these services.  The cost of these design services is a fixed fee of  $26,200.00 plus estimated expenses of $1,000.00 per the attached HMC proposal.

XIV.d. Ratification of Contracts Issued Under Board Resolution 2015-2016-041
Rationale:

In May 2016, the Board passed Resolution No. 2015-2016-041, which authorizes the Superintendent and his Designees to approve and execute contract under $45,000 limit.  The resolution requires these contracts to be ratified by the Board.  The following contract has been executed by the CFO and it is requested that it be ratified by the Board.

Installation of Back Pack Hooks at Horace Mann School Building B.

Lockers are being provided at Horace Mann School Building B that will satisfy the needs of the students in Grades 6 thru 8.  In order to satisfy the needs of the Elementary age students it was determined that back pack hooks are required in all of the Elementary classrooms.  The following items are included as part of this effort:

1) Back Pack Hooks in the K thru 5 classrooms

Staff used the CUPCCAA process to bid and award this work.  Under the rules for projects under $45,000 it is only required to solicit price from one contractor.  In most cases staff looks for at least 3 bids for any work but time did not allow this to happen and staff selected Garza Construction to negotiate the costs for this work.  Garza Construction was chosen because they have an excellent previous record of fair pricing, quality work and completion of projects on time.

The price negotiated with Garza Construction is $44,920.00.

The engineering estimate for this project is $43,910.00.

The work is in process and will be completed by August, 2016

XIV.f. Approval of Amendment No. 14 to the Agreement with DLR Group for Architectural/Engineering Services to Design an Interim Security Fence at Beverly Hills High School
Rationale:

In December 2013 the Board approved an agreement with DLR Group for design requirements of the Modernization and New Construction at Beverly Hills High School.  DLR was further contracted to provide schematic design services for a permanent security fence along Moreno Boulevard at Beverly Hills High School.  DLR has now been requested to provide design services for a temporary or interim security fence to cover the gap between the construction fencing and Konheim Gym in the interim time period that the new modernizations have not been completed as of yet.  Staff has met with DLR and discussed the required fees for this scope of work and the attached proposal represents the agreed upon services.  This design requires submittal to DSA for review and approval for accessibility requirements due to the various pathways that cross through this fence location.  This will take intensive effort by DLR to meet the schedule.  This is a time sensitive project and will take extended effort by DLR to get the necessary approval.  This fee also includes the services during the construction period.

This amendment is to compensate DLR for this additional work.  The cost of these design services is a fixed fee of $42,690.00 plus estimated expenses of $2,135 per the attached DLR proposal.

XIV.g. Approval of Amendment No. 14 to the Agreement with DLR Group for Architectural/Engineering Services to Design a Change to the Chiller Plant at Beverly Hills High School that will Allow a Minimum Sustainable Capacity
Rationale:

In December 2013 the Board approved an agreement with DLR Group for design requirements of the Modernization and New Construction at Beverly Hills High School.  DLR was further contracted to provide design services for the Buildings B1/B2, B3/B4, and Building A at Beverly Hills High School.  DLR designed Building A reusing the existing chillers.  B1/B2 and B3/B4 are scheduled to be taken off of the chilled water system.  The new cooling system for these buildings will not require the use of chilled water.  After further information was provided from the Districts M&O Division, it was determined that the current size and type of chillers could not provide a minimum sustainable capacity for the current as well as the future configurations.  To resolve this, a smaller sized chiller is required when the chilled water needs are very low.  This allows the campus to function efficiently without detrimental damage to the larger chillers that do not operate well at low demand loads and were not designed for to operate in that fashion.  The project will be competitively bid and requires bid documents to be prepared by DLR.

This amendment is to compensate DLR for this additional design work.  The cost of these services is a lump sum of $6,600.00 plus estimated expenses of $330.00 per the attached DLR proposal.

This amendment is to compensate DLR for this additional work.  The cost of these design services is a fixed fee of $4,950.00 plus estimated expenses of $248.00 per the attached DLR proposal.

XVI. PROFESSIONAL AND OFFICIAL BUSINESS
XVI.a. Request for Security Personnel and Other Security Initiatives at El Rodeo
Rationale:

In response to requests from El Rodeo School Site Council, the Board has asked staff to gather estimates and explore security options.

Several security personnel options have been discussed.  A new yet City-vetted approach is to bring in an Ambassador.  The City Ambassador program is well regarded by City staff and could be expanded to temporarily cover El Rodeo School during construction.  Construction is likely to cease in the summer of 2019. The City contracts with Block by Block Inc. to provide this additional safety and hospitality service to the streets of Beverly Hills.  The City is amenable to expansion of services under the Human Services Department.  We will either be invoiced directly by the City or Block by Block Inc.  We could pay upfront or month to month to the City. An Ambassador will provide additional eyes and ears to the Principal, greet and support visitors, and maintain the security of entrance gates and construction equipment.   An Ambassador would be uniformed, carry electronic note-taking tools, be connected via radio to both the City and the school, and have a mountain bike to quickly circumnavigate the perimeter. The Ambassador would be highly visible and mobile, and become a part of the school and larger community.  The Ambassador would report to the Principal and assist for either 180 days or 365 days a year depending upon the desires of the Board.  This is one potential option for the Board's consideration. 

The Site Council is also asking the Board to add twenty-five radios to portable classrooms as a back up to the alarm bells, landline phones, public announce system, and the mobile App system called Remind. 

Lastly, the Site Council is asking the Board to add silent panic buttons to the desks in the main office.  The button would silently alert our security vendor Securitech to call 911.
