  Placer County Office of Education has requested to revise the multi-year agreement for use of facilities for the 2014-15 school year. As PCOE reviews its various program needs each year, the number of classrooms needed throughout the county also must be adjusted.  There is currently a trend within the county for districts to "take back" or operate their own programs, which is causing PCOE to reduce and consolidate their offerings.  Fees are based on standardized schedules determined by PCOE and approved by the Council of Superintendents (COS).  Proceeds from the leases provide General Fund revenue to help support the costs of Maintenance & Operations. Staff recommends approval of the revised 2014-15 agreement.

Though still employed in the district, the MOU would allow her to be a student teacher while she works with students in the district's extended school year (ESY) program. Staff recommends approval of the Memorandum of Understanding with California State University, Chico.
         
k. Recommendation for Approval of Memorandum of Understanding Between the Placer County Office of Education's Leadership Institute and the Eureka Union School District (Mrs. Linda Rooney)      (C)

p. Recommendation for Approval of Resolution 13-14-17 Adjustment to Mitigation Fees Paid through Mutual Benefit Agreements (Mrs. Melody Glaspey)      (V)  
 

Background: The District currently collects a substantial portion of its Level 1 Developer fees through existing Mutual Benefit Agreements (MBA) that were negotiated with developers many years ago, and are in effect until the developments are completely built out or until the agreements terminate (generally 2023). The MBAs include provisions for annual inflationary adjustments based upon the percentage difference between the (April) All City Consumer Price Index (CPI) rates from year to year, which calculates to 1.95% for 2014-15. This year, the MBAs will also be revised to align with the SAB maximum allowable fees, recently adjusted in January 2014. These adjustments do not increase the MBA negotiated fees, but generally result in a lower square footage covered by the base fee, with overage charged at the current maximum allowable SAB rates. The updated Mitigation Fee Schedule, CPI tables, and Resolution are attached.
Recommendation: Staff recommends, upon Board review and discussion, approval of the attached resolution for School Facilities Mitigation Fees. Updated rates will be effective 07/05/2014.

         
q. Recommendation for Approval and First Reading of Updated Board Policies and Administrative Regulations (Mrs. Linda Rooney)      (V)  
 

Background: 
1. BP 6177 - Summer Learning Programs
(BP revised; AR deleted)
Updated policy reflects NEW LAW (AB 97) which redirects funding that could be used for summer school, including supplemental instruction programs and intensive reading and algebra programs funded through the Pupil Retention Block Grant, into the LCFF. Revised policy also provides for alignment of summer programs with goals in the district's LCAP.
2. BP/AR 6179 - Supplemental Instruction
(BP revised; AR deleted)
MANDATED policy updated to reflect NEW LAW (AB 97) which redirects funding for supplemental instruction programs into the LCFF.  Policy also clarifies which programs are still required by law and which are discretionary, and reflects NEW LAW (AB 484) which establishes a new state assessment system, thereby affecting the criteria that may be used to determine student eligibility for supplemental instruction based on lack of sufficient progress toward passing the high school exit exam. Regulation deleted since funding for supplemental instruction programs was redirected into the LCFF pursuant to NEW LAW (AB 97).  Some concepts moved from AR to BP.

Recommendation:
1. It is recommended that the Board Policy BP6177 (Summer Learning Programs) which was formerly entitled Summer School be amended and adopted in accordance with new LCAP requirements and CSBA recommendations. It is recommended that Administrative Regulation AR 6177 is deleted. The content is contained within the recommended update to BP 6177. 
2. It is recommended that the Board Policy BP6179 (Supplemental Instruction) be amended and adopted in accordance with new LCAP requirements and CSBA recommendations. It is recommended that Administrative Regulation AR 6179 is deleted. The content is contained within the recommended update to BP 6179. 

         
r. Discussion of Recommended Schedules and Format for Board Member School Site Visitations for 2014-15 School Year (Mrs. Linda Rooney)      (V)  
 

Background:  The Board has requested a revision to the 2013-14 school year Board Member School Site Visitation schedule and format for the 2014-15 school year.

Recommendation:  It is recommended that the Board consider the adoption of the schedule for site visitations for the 2014-15 school year including one visitation per site per year which has been developed and proposed by the Eureka Leadership Team (ELT) in conjunction with input from the professional staff. 

         
s. Recommendation for Adoption of Resolution 13-14-18 Declaring Administrator Salaries Indefinite (Mr. Tom Janis)      (V)  
 

Background: The resolution determines certain certificated and classified administrator salaries to be “indefinite.” The resolution must be approved by the Board in open session at a regular or special meeting before the close of the 2013-2014 fiscal year. This resolution is required in order to comply with California Constitutional requirements. Recently, the board approved a salary increase for all bargaining groups effective in the 2013-2014 fiscal year. Due to California Constitutional requirements, this resolution is necessary so that the salaries of administrators employed pursuant to written contracts may also be adjusted for the 2013-2014 fiscal year.
Recommendation: Staff recommends the approval of Resolution 13-14-18, so that salary adjustments can be made to contract administrators.

         
t. Board Discussion and Consideration of Adoption of Final Draft of District Governance Calendar (President Nash)      (V)
