15.1.18. Approve Authorization of 2.5 Semester Physical Education Credits for Completion of Any CIF Sports Season
Speaker:
Matthew Wien, Assistant Superintendent Educational Services
Rationale:

Physical Education (PE) credit has historically been given to student-athletes who can have a “Sports PE” class in their schedule.  This usually occurs during seventh period and only for athletes in certain sports (generally football, basketball, and baseball) and is primarily reserved for sports that have an on-campus coach.  To be more equitable to all student-athletes, both comprehensive high schools would like to offer a partial PE credit to any athlete who successfully completes a season of a CIF sport.  These credits can only be applied to PE. This would allow student-athletes of all levels in sports where they compete in CIF, to acquire PE credit for time spent in season. An additional benefit is that this system would allow an open spot in a schedule for student-athletes who wish to take additional courses and plan on playing in four sports seasons.  

Bonita Unified School District requires 20 semester units of PE for high school graduation.  All freshman would still be required to take PE and acquire their first ten credits in a PE course.  The additional ten credits could now be acquired by successful completion of four sports seasons or a second year of PE, or a combination of both.

This system will begin in the Fall of 2019 and will not be retroactive to any previous sports seasons.


 
Comments:

Both Bonita High School and San Dimas High School would like to offer a partial (2.5 credits) Physical Education credit for any athlete who successfully completes a CIF sport at any level.

15.1.19. Approve Display of Elementary History Social Science (HSS) Instructional Materials from Benchmark Advanced Publishing, McGraw Hill Publishing, and Studies Weekly
Speaker:
Matthew Wien, Assistant Superintendent Educational Services
Rationale:

In the fall of 2018, a decision was made by the History Social Science Focus Group to pilot materials from several publishers for consideration for adoption for the 2019-2020 school year. This process led to a decision to do a mixed adoption as follows:

     Benchmark Advanced Social Studies Supplements Grades K and 1
     McGraw Hill Impact - Grades 2, 3, and 5
     Studies Weekly - Grade 4

From June 15, 2019, through July 1, 2019, these materials will be on display in the lobby at the Bonita Unified District Office for public viewing.  Feedback will be collected and questions fielded by Chris Ann Horsley, Senior Director of Elementary Curriculum.
 
Comments:

The mixed adoption, approved by the History Social Science (HSS) Focus group, contains components that will give students the curriculum they need to be successful with mastering grade level HSS standards.  The instructional shifts required of the new framework include an emphasis on literacy and inquiry.

15.2.4. Declare Items Listed as Surplus in Accordance with Education Code 17545 and Authorize Disposal
Speaker:
Susan Cross Hume, Assistant Superintendent Business Services
Rationale:
Grace Miller Elementary School, Oak Mesa Elementary School, Roynon Elementary School, School Age Care, and the Facilities Department  have requested that the equipment listed on the attached list 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.

15.2.12. Approve Agreement Between Bonita Unified School District and the Liquidation Company for the Sale of Surplus and/or Obsolete Property for the 2019-2020 School Year
Speaker:
Susan Cross Hume, Assistant Superintendent Business Services
Rationale:

Schools and departments continue to clean out classrooms, offices and storage areas in an effort to identify and dispose of unusable and obsolete items. Storage of these items creates an unnecessary hazard that can be eliminated if these items are declared surplus and disposed of.

Staff is recommending the approval of an Agreement with the Liquidation Company for the sale of surplus and/or obsolete furniture and equipment for the 2019-2020 school year. Education Code 17545, Section B allows the Board of Education to conduct any sale of personal property authorized under this section by means of an auction conducted by employees of the district or other public agencies, or by contract with a private auction firm. The proceeds received from the sale of surplus property will be credited to the original expenditure account of the property sold or to the General Fund of the District per Education Code 17547.

 
Comments:
The storage of unusable or obsolete items creates an unnecessary hazard that can be eliminated if the items are declared surplus and disposed of. Using an outside vendor reduces staff time devoted to the management of surplus items and recoups some of the cost of surplus items.
Financial Impact:
The cost of services is deducted from the sale proceeds.
15.2.13. Approve Master Consulting Agreement Between Bonita Unified School District and American Fidelity Administrative Services, LLC - 2019-2020
Speaker:

The AF Comply program provides data that the District needs to report to the Internal Revenue Service on adherence to the provisions of the ACA. 

American Fidelity Administrative Services, LLC will provide the District with access to the AF Comply program to track employee hours worked. American Fidelity provides a support team to work with District staff. Data is updated in the AF Comply program on a monthly basis.

 
Comments:

In order to comply with tracking and reporting requirements of the Affordable Care Act and the new sick leave provisions, an online tracking system is required.

As a member of the CIF, the Governing Board of Bonita Unified School District is asked each year to designate league representatives to the CIF section office in order to maintain voting privileges (CIF Constitution, Article 2, Section 26, p. 13). As athletic league representatives, those so designated will be the only people who will be voting on issues at the league and section level that impact athletics.
 
Comments:
The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) is a voluntary organization that consists of school and school related personnel with responsibility for administering interscholastic athletic activities in secondary schools.  Education Code 33353 (a) (1) gives specific authority to Governing Boards of school districts to select their athletic league representatives.

15.3.6. Approve Professional Growth Incentive for Classified Employees
Speaker:
Kevin Lee, Assistant Superintendent Human Resources Development
Rationale:
The Professional Growth Program identifies those individuals who consistently strive for self-improvement and in turn bring added talents and skills to the service of children. 
 
Comments:
The program awards classified employees an increment that will be annually distributed for the duration of classified employment with the Bonita Unified School District.  A person may earn up to four $250 increments; however there must be at least two years between each increment.  This program exemplifies the commitment to excellence that exists among the classified staff.
Financial Impact:
Cost is $9,250 for year 2018-2019.

15.3.7. Declare All Management, Confidential and Other Unrepresented Employee Groups Salaries Indefinite for 2019-2020 Fiscal Year
Speaker:
Kevin Lee, Assistant Superintendent Human Resources Development
Rationale:
If the Board declares unrepresented employees and management/confidential salaries indefinite, the Board keeps open the option of making any possible salary adjustments retroactive to July 1, 2019.  Absent the specific action to declare the salaries indefinite, no retroactive salary adjustments would be possible.
 
Comments:

In the event that revenues from the State or other sources are increased or decreased during the 2019-2020 fiscal year, retroactive pay increased or decreases would be a possibility.  To allow unrepresented and management employee salaries to be modified retroactive to July 1, 2019, the Board must take specific action to declare the salaries for these groups indefinite.  As a result of financial uncertainties, negotiations, legislation and other unrepresented employee salaries are declared indefinite for 2019-2020.

Unrepresented and management employee salaries are set by the Governing Board by unilateral action.  No bargaining is required.  As a result, long-standing county counsel opinions apply, which precludes retroactive pay, except in situations where salaries are declared indefinite.

Education Code Sections 45032/87806 provide that salaries can be set at any time during the year.  This does not permit retroactivity.  California Constitution (Article 11, Section 10) prohibits officers or employees from receiving additional compensation for services already rendered. 


Financial Impact:
No additional cost to the District at this time.  Eventual cost is dependent on the amount of any increase approved by the Board.

16.1.1. Conduct a Public Hearing Regarding the District's Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)
Speaker:
Matthew Wien, Assistant Superintendent Educational Services
Rationale:
The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a three-year plan that identifies the District's primary educational goals, the measures that will be used to show growth, the actions and services to support the goals, and the expenditures needed to complete the actions and services. The LCAP aligns with the District budget using the Local Control Funding Formula. As required by Education Code 42127 and 52062, a public hearing to receive public comments related to the proposed LCAP is required at the same meeting as the public hearing for the budget adoption.
 
Comments:
To meet the requirements of the LCAP plan development and gather any additional input from the public related to the revisions of the plan, it is necessary for the Board of Education to hold a public hearing on the annual update and revision to the LCAP before adopting the plan at a later meeting.

16.2.1. Approve Education Protection Account Expenditure Plan for 2019-2020
Speaker:
Susan Cross Hume, Assistant Superintendent Business Services
Rationale:

The Education Protection Account (EPA) was established by the Department of Finance to capture the increased tax collections due to local education agencies (LEA) resulting from the voter approval of Proposition 30. 

Proposition 30 provides that all K-14 LEAs have the sole authority to determine how the funds received from the EPA are expended with the following conditions:

  • A spending plan from the EPA funds must be approved by the Board of Education during a public hearing
  • EPA funds cannot be used for salaries or benefits of administrators or any other administrative cost
  • Each year the LEA must publish on its website an accounting of how much money was received from the EPA and how the funds were expended
  • The annual financial audit must now include verification that the EPA funds were used as specified in Proposition 30
  • The EPA funds were expended on salaries and benefits for teachers

EPA expenditures based on the 2018-2019 principal apportionment are $14,728,532. These funds were used to pay for teacher salaries and benefits. EPA expenditures for 2019-2020 are projected to be $14,728,532 and will also be used to pay for teacher salaries and benefits.

 
Comments:
The use of EPA funds must be reported at a public meeting of the Board of Education.
