In addition, the program fosters a commitment to the protection and understanding of the environment and community. Students compare and contrast reptiles and amphibians to discover the characteristics of each class of animals.

A copy of the agreement is available for review in the Business Services Department.
 
Financial Impact:
Site Donations - $900
16.1.4. Approve Request to Obsolete Textbooks for the 2018-2019 School Year
Speaker:
Matthew Wien, Assistant Superintendent Educational Services
Rationale:

All thirteen schools, inventory their classrooms and textbook storage containers to determine what instructional materials are no longer being utilized in our instructional program. These materials are collected at each school site and moved to the District Office. Once all the materials have arrived at the District Office, contact is made to the many private schools and schools that are located on group home campuses within our District boundaries to come and evaluate the instructional materials that are being obsoleted. Administrators from these schools determine if their staff and students would benefit from using these materials. Once the schools have had an opportunity to do their evaluation of the materials, we open the same process to outside vendors. After completion of this process, any materials that have not been selected are picked up by a company who will recycle the materials. This year, due to the middle and high school new math adoptions and the purchase of new novels,  we have a balance of materials that we will be obsoleting in addition to any other instructional materials no longer being utilized by our elementary sites.

 
Comments:
Instructional materials are being updated each and every year to keep our inventory current. The District must obsolete materials periodically to provide space for new and current instructional materials.
Financial Impact:

16.1.5. Approve Specialized Services Reimbursements for 2018-2019
Speaker:
Matthew Wien, Assistant Superintendent Educational Services
Rationale:

The Board of Education, at its regularly scheduled meeting on July 11, 2018, approved reimbursements between Bonita Unified School District and parents of students with Individual Education Programs (IEPs). These reimbursements include the following:

a. Reimbursement to parents for the cost of Independent Educational Evaluations (IEEs) for students with an Individual Education Program (IEP). These evaluations are conducted by a qualified examiner who is not employed by the Bonita Unified School District for the purpose of educational planning. Due to federal requirements to fund IEEs at public expense, the need periodically arises to reimburse parents for the IEEs.

b. Mileage Reimbursement to parents of students with an Individual Education Program (IEP). Transportation of a student with an IEP is a service allowed under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and is indicated on a student's IEP. Sometimes it is necessary for parents to transport the student to a Designated Instructional Service (DIS) and be reimbursed for their mileage.

At the time of the initial approval, the total financial impact stated $20,000. 2018-2019 reimbursements will exceed this amount.

 
Comments:
It is necessary to increase the financial impact to $45,000. This amount supersedes the original Board approval of $20,000 on July 11, 2018.
Financial Impact:
Specialized Student Services - Not to Exceed $45,000
16.1.6. Approve Agreement Between Bonita Unified School District and Frontier Communications
Speaker:
Matthew Wien, Assistant Superintendent Educational Services
Rationale:

The Board of Education, at its regularly scheduled meeting on February 1, 2017, approved an agreement between Bonita Unified School District and Frontier Communications to provide a 1Gbps point-to-point network link between the temporary District Office and the District's secondary data center. This connection allows staff to use phones and computers while at the temporary facility.

At the time of the initial approval, the total financial impact stated $15,000. The contract reveals a monthly cost of $1,175 plus estimated surcharges which will total approximately $36,000 for the 24-month term.

A copy of the agreement is available for review in the Business Services Department.

 
Comments:
It is necessary to increase the financial impact to ensure relocated District staff have access to network and phones for the remainder of the renovation period.  The amended total cost is $36,000. This amount supersedes the original Board approval of $15,000 on February 1, 2017.
Financial Impact:
General Fund - Not to Exceed $36,000
16.1.7. Approve 2018-2019 Site Safety Plans
Speaker:
Matthew Wien, Assistant Superintendent Educational Services
Rationale:

California Education Code 32282 requires that each school annually develop a Comprehensive School Safety Plan.  These plans are developed in collaboration with stakeholders in each school community, including representatives from law enforcement.  Comprehensive School Safety Plans are also approved by each School Site Council prior to submission to the District for approval.

Comprehensive School Safety Plans contain the following components:

  • Assessment of the current status of school crime
  • Child abuse reporting procedures
  • A school building disaster plan
  • A drop and cover procedure, and earthquake drills procedures
  • Protective measures to be taken before, during, and after an earthquake and a program to ensure that students and staff are trained in earthquake procedures
  • A procedure to allow a public agency to use school buildings and grounds for mass care and welfare shelters during disasters
  • Policies for students who commit acts which may lead to suspension or expulsion
  • Procedures for notifying teachers of dangerous pupils

  • The provisions of the school-wide dress code that prohibit gang attire
  • Procedures for the safe ingress and egress of students, staff, and parents to and from school
  • Rules and procedures for school discipline
  • Procedures for hate crime reporting

A copy of each Comprehensive School Safety Plan is available for review in the Student Services Office.

 
Comments:
Each year Comprehensive School Safety Plans are approved by site administrators, Site Councils, and the School Board in order to maintain compliance with State guidelines.  In addition, the planning process provides for a continuous development, implementation, and monitoring cycle aimed at improved student achievement.
Financial Impact:

16.2.4. Declare Items Listed as Surplus in Accordance with Education Code 17545 and Authorize Disposal
Speaker:
Susan Cross Hume, Assistant Superintendent Business Services
Rationale:

Ekstrand Elementary School, Shull Elementary School, the CIS Department, and Educational Technology Department have requested that the equipment listed on the attached lists be declared obsolete.  Schools and departments periodically review their furniture and equipment items to identify obsolete items for disposal.

Board Policy 3270 details the various options for the disposal of surplus property, with the exception of E-waste. The District is currently disposing of salvageable items by using a public auction service. E-waste, which includes computers, printers, and other technology equipment, is palletized and identified by a serial number. In order to comply with current regulations on the disposal of E-waste, the equipment is then disposed of by a qualified contractor.

The obsolete items identified by the school sites and departments have a value of less than $2,500 and will be disposed of as detailed in Education Code Section 17546(2). 

Storage of these items creates an unnecessary hazard that can be eliminated by declaring the items as surplus and approving their disposal.

School sites and departments continue to monitor classrooms, offices, and storage areas in an effort to identify and dispose of unusable and obsolete items.

16.2.6. Approve Agreement Between Bonita Unified School District and Architecture 9, LLLP to Provide Architectural and Engineering Services
Speaker:
Susan Cross Hume, Assistant Superintendent Business Services
Rationale:

The District plans to enter into various construction projects.  The services of a licensed architect are necessary to plan projects, prepare schematics and renderings, project budgets, create schedules, bid documents, specifications, and architectural plans, and provide the interface with the Division of the State Architect and the Office of Public School Construction to provide supervision of contractors and other tasks related to the completion of construction projects.

 
Comments:

District staff recommends entering into an agreement with Architecture 9, LLLP, for these services.  Architecture 9 is a full service architectural firm specializing in public works.

The temporary office, which consists of 13,866 square feet, is located at 801 Corporate Center Drive, Suite 270 in Pomona. Small Giant, LLC is the current owner of the property.

The monthly base rent is $2.06 per square foot. The rate includes utility costs and custodial services. The District is responsible for phone and internet costs.  The original lease was in effect through February, 2019.

Due to logistics of furnishing the new District Office building, District staff will need to remain in the Pomona office through the month of April.
