Rationale:
On October 16, 2018, a Facilities Master Plan Update was presented to the Board of Education, which included an update on modernization of El Rodeo School. Because of challenges and concerns related to site constraints and an occupied campus, a revised plan was developed that assumed moving the students off the El Rodeo School site during construction, thereby reducing the timeline from 57 months to 27 months, with project cost avoidance estimated at $15,952,518.

IX.G. Pawar Transportation amendment to contract
Rationale:
One of our transportation providers has discontinued their contract with BHUSD for lack of ability to serve our students for the remainder of the school year. After getting several quotes from other companies, we found that Pawar Transportation provided the most comparable service rate for our two wheel chair students who need transportation to and from school daily. The cost will be $33,670. This cost was already in our budget with another company, so its not an additional cost. It will increase the Pawar transportation total contract to $66,000. This cost will come from the Student Services budget for the 2018-2019 school year.

IX.H. Approval of Renewal of Voluntary Drug Testing Contract with Bensinger, Dupont, and Associates
Rationale:
This is a one-year MOU with Bensinger, DuPont & Associates. Bensinger, DuPont & Associates is a fee-based independent third party administrator that the District has been utilizing for over five years to implement the drug testing component of CHOICES. Results are given to parents and the designated school administrator (Principal). If a student test result is positive, a licensed Medical Review Officer calls the student’s parent to determine if a cause other than illicit drug use exists. Total cost is not expected to exceed $800 for the 2018-2019 school year and will be taken from the Student Services CWA funding.
