VIII.E. Non Public School/ Non Public Agency Master Contracts for 2018-2019 school year
Rationale:
Each fiscal year the District develops new Master Contracts and Individual Services Agreements for students with Individual Education Programs (I.E.P.s) which require nonpublic school and or nonpublic agency services that the district is unable to provide. The term of the Master Contract shall be from July 1 through June 30 (Title 5 California code of regulations section 3062(a)) unless otherwise stated. Neither the CONTRACTOR (nonpublic school or agency) nor the LEA is required to renew this Master Contract in subsequent contract years. However, the parties acknowledge that any subsequent Master contract is to be re- negotiated prior to June 30th. In the event the contract is not renegotiated by June 30th, an interim contract may be made available as mutually agreed upon for up to 90 days from July 1 of the new fiscal year. (Title 5 California Code of Regulations section 3062(d)) NO Master contract will be offered unless and until all of the contracting requirements have been satisfied. The offer of a Master Contract to a CONTRACTOR is at the sole discretion of the LEA. The Master Contract includes the LEA policies and procedures and any subsequent Individual Services Agreement (ISA). The Master Contract supersedes any prior or contemporaneous written amendment executed by both parties. Funding for all Master Contracts is under the Student Services budget.
 
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Education Code section 56365 indicates that the Local Educational Agency (LEA) may under contract have services provided by nonpublic schools and /or agencies if no appropriate public education program is available. The attached listing indicates those nonpublic school and agencies for which the District wishes to enter into a Master Contract for the 2018-2019 fiscal year.

VIII.F. CSEA Security Officer Annual Training
Rationale:
SB 1626 requires school security officers to be trained. Many officers completed the training over 10 years ago and the nature of school security is evolving. Our newest officers need training too. SB 1626 requires school districts to train their security officers. At approximately $25 an hour for twelve (12) officers at four (4) the cost is $1,200 for wages. The cost twelve (12) guards for the training is $80 each and totals $960. In all this annual cost is $2,160.

VIII.G. Approval of Raptor Visitor Registration Initiative
Rationale:
Access control is part of a good security plan. Raptor automates and improves visitor registration by reading a government issued ID. Raptor creates a unique visitor badge with the person's photo, name, and arrival time. Raptor collects the person's photo, name, age, time of registration, estimated time of departure, destination/reason for being on campus. The Security Officer, Principal, Office Manager, and Director of Security will be able to see who is on or has been on the campus on their computer. A badge will never be issued to a registered sex offender. The estimated total cost is $10,343 however the "do not exceed" amount on the PSA is $11,500 in case we need to add or replace a scanner or a printer, or purchase more badge rolls. There will be additional costs for seven (7) small laptops for the seven (7) kiosks at the five (5) schools. There will be additional costs for a three (3) to four (4) WiFi hubs and for three (3) large batteries. The batteries will be used if we cannot run electricity to the kiosk. This request will be brought to the Board at the July 24 Meeting but it estimated to be approximately $15,000. In all this initiative will cost approximately $26,500. The estimated annual reoccurring cost for software access for five (5) schools is $2,960. The estimated annual costs of badge stickers is $600. This initiative is being funded by the Safety Department budget. This agreement with Raptor is from July 11, 2018 to July 11, 2019.

X.A. Approval of Resolution No. 2018-2019-001 Resolution of the Board of Education of the Beverly Hills Unified School District Approving Amended and Restated Bylaws for the Beverly Hills Unified School District Independent Citizens Bond Oversight Committee
Rationale:
An election was held in the Beverly Hills Unified School District on November 4, 2008 (the “Measure E Election”) for the issuance and sale of general obligation bonds of the Beverly Hills Unified School District (the “District”). An election was also held in the District on June 5, 2018 for the issuance and sale of general obligation bonds of the District (the “Measure BH Election”). Measures E and BH were approved under Proposition 39 which requires that the District establish, populate and empower an independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee. As required by Proposition 39, the District, through Board actions, established an independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee in connection with Measure E. The District now wishes to expand the responsibilities of the Measure E Committee to include the review of expenditures of both Measure E and the Measure BH bond proceeds, and to approve the Amended and Restated Bylaws which set forth the expanded power and responsibilities of the original Measure E Committee.

The District has received from the County's Registrar of Voters/County Clerk-Recorder the Canvass Certificate and Official Statement of results of (the Canvass) the Bond election, whereby it appears that more than fifty-five percent of the votes cast on Measure BH were in favor of issuing the aforementioned bonds.

XI. BOARD POLICIES
XI.A. Annual Establishment of the Interdistrict Permit Cap for 2018-2019
Rationale:
Board direction for the establishment of the interdistrict permit cap is required annually. The current Interdistrict permit cap is set at zero (0). The district currently enrolls approximately 3868 students (as of 7/17/18), with 178 students attending BHUSD schools on an interdistrict attendance permit: 107-District Employee Permit 36-City Employee Permit 3-Environment 6-Opportunity 7-Legacy 10-Homeless 9-Student Services
 
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Administrative Regulation 5117 states that "each year, the Board will review current year enrollment, inter-district permit numbers, enrollment projections and related budget information as a basis for establishing the inter-district permit cap for the subsequent school year."  Because families with students on permit could be affected by the permit policy, providing adequate planning time for the 2018-19 school year is beneficial.
Attachments:
BP AR 5117 Interdistrict Attendance
XI.B. Continuation of Existing Interdistrict Attendance Permits Pursuant to Board Policy and Administrative Regulation 5117 for the 2018-19 School Year
Rationale:
Annual direction is required regarding the continuation of interdistrict attendance permits for the 2018-19 school year of students currently attending District schools.  Current practice is to allow existing permit students to maintain enrollment, not revoking these permits through high school graduation. These permits also include the children of City and District Employees who are offered permits at all grade levels, and would be exempted under this policy. Board direction for the establishment of the interdistrict permit cap is required annually. The current Interdistrict permit cap is set at zero (0). The district currently enrolls approximately 3868 students (as of 7/17/18), with 178 students attending BHUSD schools on an interdistrict attendance permit: 107-District Employee Permit 36-City Employee Permit 3-Environment 6-Opportunity 7-Legacy 10-Homeless 9-Student Services
 
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Education Code 46600(a)(3) states, in part, “The stipulation of the terms and conditions under which the permit may be revoked is the responsibility of the district of attendance.” The Board establishes such terms and conditions in BP 5117 and AR 5117. Because families with students on existing permit could be affected by the permit policy, providing adequate planning time for the 2018-19 school year is beneficial.
