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1.The information shared at past Board meetings regarding the state and local bonds has been archived at this link:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1L3pPpeKUUSPU2ZjTdbp7FXUgSEY_g021YBPxgip16Mw

  1. New information regarding the state and local bonds since the January 14, 2019, Board Meeting:
  2. Bond Funding:

1) State and Local Bond Funding:

  1. Our Project One, Contract One and Contract Two and Project Two plans have been approved by the Division of the State Architect (DSA). We have submitted our plans to the California Department of Education (CDE). We expect and are awaiting approval. After CDE approval, our Project One, Contract Two and Project Two funding application will be submitted to the State Allocation Board (SAB). We will then be in line to access state bond funds when they become available.
  2. Bridge Funding:
  3. Bridge funding is an amount we may need borrow to meet the budgets of our projects between the exhaustion of our local bond fund and the procurement of state bond design funding.
  4. We estimate that our local bond funding will exhausted by the end of August.
  5. The proposed 2020-21 state budget proposes $1.5 billion in bond sales. This is $906 million more than 2019-20. There is a proposal in the legislature to sell $4 to 5 billion in state bond funding in 2019-20.
  6. Our School Facilities Consultant estimates that using the $1.5 million bond sales planned in 2019-20, funding will enable our Design funding to arrive sometime before the end June of 2022.
  7. We have researched lenders for Bridge Funding. We had discussed a proposal from Isom Advisors, our bond advisor firm. At this point, it is the most prudent course for the District to take. The specifics of this proposal will be brought to the public for review and for the Board for approval at a future board meeting. The critical elements of this proposal are:
  8. i) The loan will take the form of a bond sale. The loan fee and the interest on the loan will be built into the life of the loan.
  9. ii) Payments will be deferred for one year and five months from the time we commit to the loan. For example:
  10. aa) If we commit to the loan in August of 2019, our first payment will be due in November of 2021.
  11. bb) If we receive Design Funding by June of 2022, the cost of the loan will be $83,215.72. We have built this amount into our construction budget. It represents a reduction of our construction budget
  12. cc) This example is a worst-case scenario:
  13. a) We may be able to find more favorable terms before we sign for the loan.
  14. b) If we receive design funding sooner, and we pay off the loan sooner, the cost of the loan will be less.
  15. Lease Leaseback bid package:
  16. When Pierson Company withdrew their Lease Leaseback proposal we contacted the other Lease Leaseback candidate, Dinsmore Construction. On Friday, February 1st, the administrative staff, our district architect attended a meeting with Dinsmore. Dinsmore agreed to put together a bid package within the next three weeks. They expect that we will be able to begin construction in March.

 

Fiscal Implications:

None.

Action Requested:

Information

 

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

At the November School Board Meeting, Superintendent/Principal Nannizzi brought the following information to the board:

In recent years, preceding current administration, Jacoby Creek School has offered free/reduced daycare, academic support classes, and enrichment classes after school to those students who qualify for free/reduced lunch. While we receive supplemental concentration dollars to support these programs, the deficit to run the After School Enrichment (ASE) and Academic Support program in the 2017-2018 school year was $19,535.

 

In order to find a balance between fiscal responsibility and providing all students the opportunity to take part in the ASE program, the administration would like to recommend the District limit students to one free/reduced cost After School Enrichment Class per session. Academic Support classes will continue to be offered at a free/reduced rate with no limit to the number of classes

 

The Board requested additional information regarding how many students are impacted and estimated fiscal implications of reducing the number of free/reduced enrichment classes.  The attached document provides this information.

 

Fiscal Implications:
