The cleaning of district facilities was covered by insurance with a $1,000 deductible paid for by the District. Many thanks to the team at Restoration Management Company for the efficient cleaning of our facilities.
 

APPROVAL OF THE
LEARNING CONTINUITY AND ATTENDANCE PLAN FOR SLVUSD and SLV CHARTER SCHOOL

 
For the 2020-21 school year, districts developed a Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCAP) that outlines the district strategies for instruction, progress monitoring and attendance for Distance Learning. 

Mr. Ned Hearn, Assistant Superintendent-Instruction, presented this item. Both plans, for SLVUSD and SLV Charter School, were brought to the Board as a First Reading on September 16, 2020. Dr. Bruton, Superintendent, provided a presentation of the SLVUSD LCAP. The required Public Hearings were held prior to the approval by the Board.

The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan can be viewed HERE.
 
APPROVAL OF UNAUDITED ACTUALS FINANCIAL REPORTS

Mr. Chris Schiermeyer, Deputy Superintendent-Business, presented the Unaudited Actuals Report, which is due before September 15th; however, due to the CZU Fire the deadline was extended.

Mr. Schiermeyer presented Fund 01, unrestricted and restricted revenue and expense variances, unrestricted general fund components of the ending fund balance, contributions for Special Education, Transportation, and the Cafeteria. He then provided information regarding Funds 09, 13, 17, 21, 25, and 40. Next steps, as well as concurrent activities were shared.

In summary, the District ended the 2019-2020 school year with a slight decrease to the overall fund balance of $199,793 mostly restricted Fund 06 (Maintenance and Improvement Maintenance District). The District continues to be a low Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) district in terms of supplemental funding. The employer pension rates, student enrollment, Special Education, and Basic Aid Supplemental funding will continue to be monitored.

APPROVAL OF RESOLUTION #2020-21-07 SUPPORTING AWARD OF LEASE-LEASEBACK AGREEMENTS FOR THE NEW CAREER TECHNICAL EDUCATION (CTE) CLASSROOM BUILDINGS AND SITE WORK PROJECT

Mr. Chris Schiermeyer, Deputy Superintendent-Business, reported that three construction firms submitted proposals for the CTE project. After the completion of interviews and evaluations of each construction firm, Ausonio, Inc., was selected for the pre-construction services, which is $42K for this portion of the project.

Mr. Schiermeyer explained, "Once the drawings for a project are 75% completed, a contractor will be selected." The contractor will assist in defining the scope of the project. The details of the project will be determined before the plans go to the Department of the State Architect (DSA). This helps to avoid future change orders.  If the District is satisfied with the work from Ausonio, Inc., they would also be awarded the construction contract.
 
APPROVAL OF CONTRACT FOR THE SAN LORENZO VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL SWIMMING POOL RENOVATION PROJECT

Mr. Chris Schiermeyer, Deputy Superintendent-Business, presented the information on the  repairs to the SLVHS pool with California Commerical Pools Inc. Four companies submitted bids for the pool project. All four bids were approximately $300K-$400K over the projected cost for the pool repair. The total cost of the pool is expected to be 1.5 million. Approximately $500K of the costs will be paid out of Fund 06 and the remaining costs will be paid through the Measure S Facility Bond.

The SLV Pool Project will begin on October 19, 2020 with an anticipated completion date near the end of December or early January. 
 
APPROVAL OF PURCHASE OF TWO PORTABLES FOR THE QUAIL HOLLOW RENOVATION PROJECT

Mr. Chris Schiermeyer, Deputy Superintendent-Business, reported on the SLV Charter, Quail Hollow campus project. The district will purchase two remodeled portables in an effort to provide adequate classroom space for SLV Charter.  The refurbished portables are in excellent condition. This reduction in cost may allow for additional campus improvements to the grounds and play areas.

Phase I of the Quail Hollow Project will demolish four old portables that are in very poor condition. Two existing portables will be moved to alternative locations on campus. This will allow for additional parking behind the Administration building for staff.
