Agenda Item 7.

ADMINISTRATION

Subject:

7.2 State and Local Bond Report

Action Requested:

None.

Previous Staff/Board Action, Background Information and/or Statement of Need:

  1. Previous information shared at past Board meetings regarding the state and local bonds as of the November 5, 2018, Board Meeting may be found at the link below:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1l9tFrgnpYFeuA4L6uGC41Vyun6lQiWIgcQEDfgVO7Rs

  1. New information regarding the state and local bonds since the November 5, 2018, Board Meeting:
  2. CEQA: The CEQA planning process has been completed. In agenda item 7.8, we will be asking the Board for approval of Resolution 7 2018-2019, which will put our CEQA Monitoring/Mitigation/Reporting Plan in place. The next step is for us to present our approved plan to the City of Arcata so they may follow through on their agreement with us and make a determination that a Coastal Development Permit is not required. Following that, we submit our approved CEEQA plan to CDE so that our Project Plans may be approved.
  3. State and Local Bond Funding:
  4. Unreasonable Hardship Request:

1) On October 30th, our architect submitted a Request for Finding of Unreasonable Hardship to the Division of the State Architect to secure the funding we need for the partial construction of the American with Disabilities Act improvements for Project One.

2) On Friday, November 30th, our architect, the Superintendent/Principal  and the Assistant Superintendent had a phone conference with Dessa Rooney, Manager of the Oakland Regional Office of the Division of the State Architect (DSA) and one of her staff members. DSA requested more information from our architect and the District. We provided that information to them on Monday, December 3rd. DSA will consider our request.

  1. If our request is granted, we will be able to proceed with building a library and one classroom.
  2. If our request is denied, we will have to decide if we wish to build a library or one classroom, or consider other options.
  3. Revision of Project Plans:

1) After our phone conversation with DSA, it is the opinion of our architect, Guy Fryer, that DSA will not grant our Unreasonable Hardship Request. Anticipating that our request is denied, we have directed him to move forward to re-design Project One to include only building a library and the minimal Fire, Life and Safety and American with Disabilities Act improvements. Our current construction budget can complete those items. This reduction in the scope of Project One has been discussed previously and due to budget issues, has now become a reality.

7.5  Update E/AR/BP 5117 Interdistrict Attendance

 

Action Requested:

Approval

 

Previous Staff/Board Action, Background Information and/or Statement of Need:

This is the second year that local school districts have entered into an interdistrict transfer agreement which allows for an open enrollment window.  Some minor changes were made to the agreement reflecting that last school year was a soft start to the agreement and that in the 2019-2020 the enrollment window will be consistently enforced by some of the local districts.  The new agreement also indicates that not all Humboldt County districts have entered into the agreement. The updated agreement and the updated interdistrict transfer form are attached below as E 5117.

The Humboldt County Office of Education has facilitated the local districts in creating this agreement and has asked that all participating districts update AR/ BP 5117 to appropriately reflected what is outlined in the agreement.

BP 3111 Deferred Maintenance

BP 3315 Relations with Vendors

AR 3350.1 Rental Car or Van Use

BP 3517 Facilities Inspection

AR 3541.2 Transportation for Students with Disabilities

 

Action Requested:

Approval.

Previous Staff/Board Action, Background Information and/or Statement of Need:

The administrative regulations and board policies listed below need to be eliminated for the following reasons:  

  •         BP3111 Deferred Maintenance- Deleted from CSBA  12/13

Policy deleted since NEW LAW (AB 97) repealed sections of law containing requirements pertaining to deferred maintenance categorical funds.  Pursuant to AB 97, such funds have been redirected into the LCFF and the board has exclusive authority over the use of the funds.

  •         BP 3315 Relations with Vendors- Deleted from CSBA 7/06

Recommendation: delete this unnecessary policy.  Material regarding acceptance of gifts and reporting of gifts received from vendors can be found at BB 9270 – Conflict of Interest.

  •         AR 3350.1 Rental Car or Val Use- Not in CSBA and not necessary for local use.

This is likely a district created regulation.

  •         BP 3517 Facilities Inspection- BP Deleted from CSBA –AR Added 12/17

Policy deleted and contents moved to AR. Regulation expanded to more directly reflect law regarding the conditions that must be inspected pursuant to the Office of Public School Construction’s facilities inspection tool. Regulation reflects NEW LAW (AB 10) which requires a school that serves any of grades 6-12 and is a high-poverty school, as defined, to stock 50 percent of its restrooms with feminine hygiene products and to make such products available free of charge to students. Regulation also adds recommendation for lead testing and describes the circumstances under which drinking water is required to be tested for lead, including a requirement of NEW LAW (AB 746) for testing of school buildings constructed before January 1, 2010.

  •         AR 3541.2 Transportation for Students with Disabilities- BP Revised AR deleted 5/16

Policy updated to clarify the policy’s applicability to students receiving services pursuant to Section 504 of the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, add sample criteria for individualized education program (IEP) teams to use when determining a student’s transportation needs, and add material re: the provision of information to IEP teams. Regulation deleted and material moved to BP re: provision of alternative transportation when a student is excluded from school bus transportation for a disciplinary or other reason, assurance that a contract with a nonpublic, nonsectarian school or agency addresses transportation as necessary, and transportation of service animals.

Agenda Item 7.

ADMINISTRATION

Subject:

7.9 Developer Fee

Action Requested:

Information.

Previous Staff/Board Action, Background Information and/or Statement of Need:

As discussed previously, by expending its local bond funds prior to applying for state bond funds, the District would not be required to provide a local match to state bond funding. This is called Extreme Hardship funding. In addition to expending its local bond funds in order to qualify for Extreme Hardship the District is required to conduct a Developer Fee Justification Study and implement the Developer Fee described in that study. The study may be found at the link below:

The District published a Notice of Hearing for the proposed adoption of a Developer Fee Justification Study and the increase of the statutory school fee on November 22nd and 29th. The Notice of Hearing may be found at the link below:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1JZJufaFPvKX9wXRvh7DRnIDDaUq2JHRfbDT6uQpi6n8

The adoption of a Developer Fee Justification Study and the increase of the statutory school fee through the adoption of a resolution would give the District the authority to implement a Developer Fee. If implemented, this fee would amount to about $80,000 over five years. The link to the study may be found above.  A draft of a resolution may be found at the link below:

On Friday, November 30th the District received a phone call from Mark Rynearson, a local realtor associated with Bella Vista Realty. Mr. Rynearson introduced himself as a representative of  the Northern California Homebuilders Association (NCHB). During this phone call Mr. Rynearson expressed opposition to the District’ proposed implementation of a Developer Fee. He expressed that if the District went forward with implementation of a Developer Fee, NCHB would file a lawsuit against this action.

On Wednesday, December 5th, the District received and email from Bill Barnum of the Barnum Law Office in Eureka. In this letter Mr. Barnum presented the NCHB’s opposition to the District’s proposed implementation of a Developer Fee. Unlike Mr. Rynearson’s phone call, Mr. Barnum’s letter does not specifically suggest that the HCHB would file a lawsuit against the District’s proposed implementation of a Developer Fee. However, his arguments are based upon previous lawsuits HCHB has filed against local school districts in the past and implies that such a suit would be filed. This letter may be found at the link below:

The Assistant Superintendent has reviewed all of the relevant documentation regarding The District’s proposed implementation of a Developer Fee.

We are consulting with our legal counsel Jennifer Henry of School and College Services regarding  to what extent Mr. Barnum’s letter has validity and what the appropriate response would be. Potential litigation would be discussed during closed session at a future Board meeting.

We are also consulting with Ken Reynolds, our School facilities Consultant. Ken is investigating the possibility that potential litigation would exempt the District from the requirement of implementing a Developer Fee in order to establish Extreme Hardship status.

This item will be brought back to the Board at a future meeting after consultations with Jennifer and Ken are completed.

Fiscal Implications:

None.
