K.8. APPROVE SIM-PBK ARCHITECTS NEW HIGH SCHOOL PROPOSAL TO UPDATE ORIGINAL PROGRAM AND BUILDING CODES (K. Porterfield)
Rationale:
On May 12, 2009, the Board approved the Educational Specification for the New High School which included a gym and theater. The practice gym and concession stand building for the pool were not part of the original scope.
 
Comments:
The approved scope comprised of a gym with two (2) floors and a theater with seating capacity of approximately 450 seats. SIM-PBK was directed to increase the scope for a theater with seating capacity of approximately 850 seats, an additional third floor to the gym for practice, and a concession stand building in the pool area. The increase resulted in an additional 38,410 square feet to the project. 

SIM-PBK will update the original drawings to the Division of State Architects (DSA) in order to qualify for State Funding in 2019. The drawings must be updated to meet the current building codes and be approved by DSA. The plans will be approved in 2018.

The increased fees do not include code upgrades for the future theater and concessions buildings. The fee does allow for a phased construction plan to meet district funding.
Financial Impact:
The additional fees are based on the State approved sliding scale. The original contract amount of $3,437,500 is increased by $1,713,573. Funding will be by Measure C and the State Facilities Program.

L.2. RECEIVE INFORMATION ON OCTOBER’S QUARTERLY WILLIAMS' UNIFORM COMPLAINT PROCEDURE (K. Davis)
Rationale:
In 2004, in what has become known as the Williams’ Lawsuit Settlement, it was acknowledged for the first time that the state has an obligation to provide California public school students a minimum level of educational necessities: (1) qualified teachers (2) clean, safe, and functional school facilities, and (3) adequate textbooks. The Williams’ Settlement has also established a standard of accountability mechanism for reporting in these three areas. All school districts are required to hold quarterly public hearings and to approve the uniform complaint procedure at that time. A report is then sent to the County Superintendent’s office.
 
Comments:
Principals and departments will compile information for the quarterly report. The information will show if there are deficiencies reported for any of the above three areas. A lack of reported deficiencies indicates that there are sufficient materials for every student, our teaching staff is highly qualified to teach where they are assigned, and our schools are safe, clean and functional. This information will be reported at the October 24th Board Meeting.
Financial Impact:
Continued state support with compliance.

Rationale:
In order to support full implementation of the Common Core ELA/ELD State Standards, our district staff embarked on a review and pilot to select a CCSS aligned ELA/ELD Curriculum for recommendation. In November of 2015, the Professional Consultant Committee (PCC) for ELA/ELD was formed.  The committee is comprised of representatives from each of the middle schools, high schools, and support staff.  After extensive discussions, meetings, visits and thorough reviews of the CCSS ELA/ELD materials, the PCC for ELA/ELD recommended and Board approved Amplify for grades 7-8 and Pearson MyPerspectives for use in grade 9-11.
 
Comments:
The High School members of the Professional Consultant Committee met and discussed the appropriateness of adding a grade 12 curriculum option for students. Based on input of the PCC members, administration is recommending the adoption of Pearson MyPerspectives 2017 for grade 12 and anticipate a new course offering for seniors to be added to the schedule that will use this material beginning in 2018-2019.  All curriculum has been determined appropriate and is aligned to state standards.
