X.B. Approval of Resolution 2018-2019-005 Adoption of Gann Limit
Rationale:
In November, 1979, California voters approved Proposition 4, an initiative that added Article XIIIB to the California Constitution. This amendment, popularly known as the Gann Initiative, placed limits on the growth of expenditures for publicly funded programs. Division 9 of Title 1, beginning with Section 7900 of the Government Code, was then added to law to specify the process for calculating state and local government appropriation limits and appropriations subject to limitation under Article XIIIB of the Constitution. These constitutional and statutory sections explain and define the appropriations limit as they apply to state and local governments, and require that each entity of the state government formally "adopt" its appropriations limit for a given fiscal year. Education Code sections 1629 and 42132 specify that by September 15th of each year, the Board of Education of districts shall adopt a resolution identifying their estimated appropriations limit for the current year and their actual appropriations limit for the preceding year. The documentation supporting the adoption resolution shall be made available to the public. The 2017-18 financial information was pulled in from the unaudited actuals and the estimated 2018-19 financial information is based on the Adopted Budget. A copy of the Gann Limit Calculation is attached to the agenda item along with the resolution to adopt it as required by law.

XI.A. Ratification of Agreement with Koury Engineering to Provide Strength Testing of the Footings at Building B3 at Beverly Hills High School
Rationale:
In April 2016 the Board of Education approved Koury Engineering as a district approved engineering firm through a PreQualification process.

XII. BOARD POLICIES
XII.A. Approval of the Second Reading of Board Policy, Administrative Regulation, and Exhibits 3515: Campus Safety - Use of Public Safety Cameras
Rationale:
CSBA updates require periodic updates to our Board Policies and Administrative Regulations. Attached are an all-new Board Policy, an all-new Administrative Regulation, and two new Exhibits: 3515 (Campus Safety - Use of Public Safety Cameras). These updates support our new Public Safety Cameras. There is no financial impact except for our previously approved Camera installation/maintenance/use agreement with the City/BHPD via the JPA and the creation and installation of signs via the General Fund. Roughly forty (40) camera signs are needed. The signs cost about $43 each. The total is estimated to be $1,900. Typically the Maintenance Department carries this cost and installs the signs, however Facilities believes they may use Bond funds for these signs.
