14.1.2. Approve Renewal Agreement Between Bonita Unified School District and CDW-G/Palo Alto Networks for the 2019-2020 School Year
Speaker:
Matthew Wien, Assistant Superintendent Educational Services
Rationale:

In the summer of 2017, the District purchased two next generation Palo Alto firewalls from CDW. These firewalls were necessary to ensure that the District was CIPA compliant by providing protection of student and staff internet traffic. To get the most value out of these firewalls, the District maintains advanced security services subscriptions in the form of anti-virus and malware detection licenses as well as a maintenance warranty. The security licenses allow the District to inspect and protect the internet traffic of the students and staff, while the maintenance warranty provides warranty replacement and technical support services. CIS is requesting renewal of the agreement every year.

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

 
Financial Impact:

14.1.3. Approve Renewal Agreement Between Bonita Unified School District and SoftChoice for August 1, 2019 through July 31, 2020
Speaker:
Matthew Wien, Assistant Superintendent Educational Services
Rationale:

The District maintains a volume license agreement now serviced through SoftChoice for its Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, and other Microsoft licenses. This agreement has been in place for several years through the CAMSA agreement and allows the District to save costs by bundling Microsoft license costs based on FTE. CIS is requesting renewal of the agreement effective August 1, 2019 through July 31, 2020.

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

14.1.4. Approve Partnership Agreement Between Bonita Unified School District and Mt. San Antonio College for Non-AB 288 Dual Enrollment for the 2019-2020 School Year
Speaker:
Matthew Wien, Assistant Superintendent Educational Services
Rationale:

Mt. San Antonio College (Mt. SAC) will join in a partnership with Bonita Unified to offer Non-AB 288 Dual Enrollment Courses for the upcoming school year. These courses have been selected jointly by BUSD and Mt. SAC. Students who successfully complete Dual Enrollment courses will receive high school credit on their transcript in the appropriate area and will also receive up to six UC and/or CSU approved credits, depending on the course.

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

14.1.5. Approve Professional Services Contract between Bonita Unified School District and Robust Physical Fitness Testing for 2019-20 School Year
Speaker:
Matthew Wien, Assistant Superintendent Educational Services
Rationale:

Bonita Unified School District is required to report physical fitness test data to the State of California. We have struggled to collect this data accurately and effectively for reporting. Robust PFT is a web-based software that allows our Physical Education teachers to collect and enter live physical fitness test data via a mobile device which is then compiled and reported to the State of California. Robust PFT was piloted in 2018-19 with all our school sites, and the response was favorable.

 
Comments:
The Agreement for the 2019-20 school year provides access to use Robust PFT’s Web and Mobile application to collect data. It also includes support and collaboration with Robust PFT in planning, implementing, and leading staff training throughout the 2019-20 school year. Services include, and are not limited to, providing customer care, technical support, ongoing updates, and upgrades throughout the term of the Agreement.
Financial Impact:
Educational Services - Not to Exceed $2,700 ($225 per school site)
14.1.6. Approve Adoption of Benchmark Advance Publishing for Grades K-1, McGraw Hill Publishing for Grades 2, 3, 5, and Studies Weekly for Elementary History Social Science (HSS) Materials
Speaker:
Matthew Wien, Assistant Superintendent Educational Services
Rationale:

After reviewing, piloting, and submitting materials for public review, the Elementary History Social Science Focus Group has selected to adopt (for a minimum of 6 years - maximum 8 years) the programs listed below:        

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

The mixed adoption allows Bonita students, grades K-5, to successfully master grade level HSS standards.  The instructional shifts of the new programs include an emphasis on literacy and inquiry. Students are required to ask questions, develop and support arguments, conduct research, evaluate evidence, and present findings in a cogent and persuasive manner. The programs also include clear standards-based instruction, inquiry skills, literacy, and promote citizenship. Materials in this adoption contain written material and robust digital components which allow students and parents to access the curriculum on any device away from school. The programs include components for our English Language Learners, students needing remediation, and students who need more challenging material.

 
Comments:

Benchmark Advanced Spot On Social Studies is not on the state adoption list and therefore was evaluated to ensure the District adhered to EC Sections 60002, 60040–60045.  The HSS Focus Group also followed the guidelines in the Standards for Evaluating Instructional Materials for Social Content.

Financial Impact:
Lottery Instructional Materials - Not to Exceed $470,000 for an eight year program ($370,000 for a six year adoption, and an additional $50,000 each year for years seven and eight).

Speaker:
Matthew Wien, Assistant Superintendent Educational Services
Rationale:

Per Education Code 48000, the Governing Board of any school district maintaining one or more kindergartens may, on a case-by-case basis, admit a kindergarten child having attained the age of five years at any time during the school year with the approval of the parent or guardian, subject to the following conditions: (1) The Governing Board determines that the admittance is in the best interests of the child; and (2) The parent or guardian is given information regarding the advantages and disadvantages and any other explanatory information about the effect of this early admittance.

Teachers at each school conducted a thorough assessment of academics and social skills. Teachers and principals met with the parents to review the assessments and discuss the possible advantages and disadvantages to early enrollment in kindergarten. Students entering early will begin kindergarten on or after their fifth birthday. Based upon these discussions the principals have recommended early enrollment for the students listed below:

14.2.4. Declare Items Listed as Surplus in Accordance with Education Code 17545 and Authorize Disposal
Speaker:
Susan Cross Hume, Assistant Superintendent Business Services
Rationale:
San Dimas High School and the CIS 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.

14.2.12. Accept Report on Quarterly Facility Inspections
Speaker:
Susan Cross Hume, Assistant Superintendent Business Services
Rationale:

The Williams Lawsuit Settlement requires all schools participating in the School Facilities Program or Deferred Maintenance Program establish a school facilities inspection system. The inspection system will help to ensure that schools are maintained in good repair. Education Code Section 17002 defines "good repair" to mean that the facility is maintained in a manner that ensures that it is clean, safe and functional as determined pursuant to an Interim Evaluation Instrument developed by the Office of Public School Construction (OPSC).

On June 5, 2005, the Board of Education adopted Resolution 2005-40 establishing facility inspection procedures as required by the Williams Lawsuit Settlement. District staff use the OPSC Interim Evaluation Instrument as the method for documenting the inspections. 

Conditions to be inspected include: gas leaks, HVAC problems, broken windows, doors gates and fences, unsafe and unclean interior surfaces, hazardous materials, structural damage, nonfunctioning emergency equipment, pest or vermin infestations, sewer line stoppages and inaccessible, unclean or nonfunctioning restrooms or drinking fountains. 

Inspections for the fourth quarter of 2018-2019 were conducted at Roynon Elementary School and Ramona Middle School.  Areas needing minor repairs were identified but no major safety or emergency repairs were identified.

Copies of the Facility Inspection Reports are on file in the Business Office. 

 
Comments:
To comply with the District's Facility Inspection Plan, inspections were completed at multiple school sites.
Financial Impact:
Not Applicable

A requirement of the settlement is that a quarterly report on complaints be presented to the Board of Education and the County Superintendent of Schools.
