Action Requested:

Approval.

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

The District’s Audit for the year ended June 30, 2017, was conducted in September of 2017. There were three audit findings:

Finding 2017-001 requires the District to perform a actuarial study to report Net Pension Liabilities. Many Districts in Humboldt County had this finding. As a result, the Humboldt County Office of Education is researching forming a collaborative to perform this study. The District will either join the collaborative, or contract independently to have this study done.

Finding 2017-002 requires the District to have an actuarial study to report on post-employment benefits. We have had this study completed and completed this corrective action.

Finding 2017-003 required the District to closely monitor Independent Study procedures and adjust ADA reports for 2017. The District has completed this corrective action.

The Corrective Action Plan requires Board certification. Please see the attached District Corrective Action Plan.

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 following is a summary of the information shared at past Board meetings regarding the state and local bonds:
  2. The administrative staff, the District’s bond advisor, the District’s bond attorney and other entities needed to sell bonds worked together on the sale of our local bonds. Our bonds sold on May 4, 2017. We were able to secure the property taxpayers in our district an interest rate of 4.02%. This rate is in the range of what is considered by experts in the field to be an historic low. The bonds will provide the District with 2.7 million dollars to improve its facilities for its students and community. The proceeds from the sale of our bonds, have been deposited into the District’s Fund 21.
  3. The District may be eligible for Prop. 51 state bond funding, without providing a local match, to improve its facilities for its students and community. The first state bonds were sold at the end of 2017 and will continue to be sold at intervals in the future. We submitted an application to the Office of Public School Construction (OPSC) for the amendment of our District-wide new-construction eligibility determination. This is the first formal step to take in order to procure state bond funding.
  4. These two streams of bond funding will require careful and deliberate coordination. The services of a School Facilities Consultant (SFC) and a Facilities Master Planner (FMP) who work closely together are critical to give the District the maximum opportunity to secure state bond funding. The District has contracted with Isom Advisors to provide SFC services and SchoolWorks to provide FMP services. Isom Advisors and SchoolWorks work together collaboratively. Isom Advisors is also our Bond Advisor.
  5. We advertised for members of the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee for Measure K (CBOC) and the Board approved the members of the committee.  The CBOC provides a yearly report to the Board. The CBOC needs more members. The District is advertising for CBOC members on our website.
  6. Facilities Improvement Committee (FIC):
  7. i) We reached out to stakeholders in the school community to join the FIC and have had regular meetings. The minutes of the FIC meetings are shared with the Board and stakeholders.
  8. ii) A sub-committee of the FIC, our architect and our administrative staff is developing Educational Specifications for our projects that will refine the detail within in them and provide a smoother approval process.

iii) The Schematic SIte and Building Plans for Phase (Project) One, our local bond projects, have been refined and updated by the FIC. The Board approved these plans at its December 11th 2017 meeting.

  1. SHN Engineering completed the Geohazard survey. The results have not been published, but SHN informed us that there was nothing found that will have any impact on our building program.
  2. Gutierrez Land Surveying completed topographical survey. The results have been published and nothing was found that will have any impact on our building program.

Subject:

7.2 State and Local Bond Report: continued

 

Action Requested:

None.

 

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

  1. The following is new information regarding the local and state bonds:

The District has seven projects from the past that were Occupied Without (Final) Certification by the Division of the State Architect (DSA) and one project that was not closed. These projects need Final Certification to insure that they do not interfere with the District’s ability to secure state bond funding. The Superintendent completed working with Philip Morton, a DSA Inspector, on an hourly basis to obtain Final Certification for all of these projects. The work to obtain Final Certification for all of these projects is now borne by the District’s architect, Siskiyou Design Group pending approval by the Board in agenda item 2.5.

 

Fiscal Implications:
