Background
During the 2009-2010 school year, Newport-Mesa Unified School District began collecting data for the Early Developmental Index (EDI).  The EDI is a population-based measure of early child development and kindergarten readiness in five key domains: physical health, social competence, emotional maturity, language and cognitive skills, and communications skills and general knowledge.  NMUSD was the first California school district to participate in the collection of EDI data as part of the grant from the Children and Families Commission of Orange County.  Currently all school districts in Orange County participate in the collection of EDI data.  As a result of analyzing the EDI data, the Early Childhood Education department has created a Kindergarten Readiness Action plan.

Current Consideration
Early Childhood Education Director, Kathleen Leary, and Early Childhood Education Coordinator, Michelle O'Neill, will report on the Newport-Mesa Unified School District EDI data.

16.a.7. Authorize the Use of Piggyback Bid #17/18-0955 Furniture: Systems and Stand Alone from San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools
Recommended Motion:
It is recommended that the Board of Education authorize the use of piggyback bid# 17/18-0955 from the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools for the purchase of Furniture: Systems and Stand Alone.
Financial Impact:
General Fund - expected expenditures of $2,480,000
Comments:
Background:
Pursuant to Public Contract Code 20118 and 20652, school districts may purchase from another school district or public agency contract item(s) bid at the same price and under the same terms and conditions as the awarded contract. This practice is generally referred to as "piggybacking." The practice is generally to the advantage of the second public agency or school district because it is able to secure a price for an item that has been competitively bid without going through the time and cost of the public bid process itself. The practice is especially beneficial to the school district for major purchases since the vendors bidding for the business know that their potential customers are located state-wide.

There are three significant requirements for a school district to take advantage of a piggyback bid:

1) The public agency issuing the bid must include a clause specifying that other public agencies are allowed to use the bid under the same set of specifications contained in the bid;

2) The public agency that wishes to use the bid must have a public action by its governing body (Board of Education) indicating its acceptance of the terms and conditions of the bid;

3) What is available for purchase from the bid is only what was included in the public offering by the using agency, and limited to the specific terms of the bid.

With these conditions in place, the school District Purchasing Department may evaluate the prices for items it seeks, and, if it determines the pricing to be in the best interest of the school district, recommend the purchase of items off the piggyback bid.

The Governing Board of San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools has approved its Bid #17/18-0955 Furniture: Systems and Stand Alone and has agreed to allow other districts to use their approved contract for the purchase of furniture for use at various district sites. The Newport-Mesa Unified School District Purchasing Department as evaluated the bid for competitive prices and quality and recommends that it is in the best interest of the district to approve piggyback Bid #Bid 17/18-0955 to meet current and future district needs.

Staff recommends approval of this motion.

18. Public Hearing
18.a. Public Hearing Disclosing the Provisions of the 2019-20 Tentative Collective Bargaining Agreement with the California School Employees Association Chapter #18
Recommended Motion:
It is recommended that the Board of Education conduct a public hearing to inform the public of the costs associated with the California School Employees Association (CSEA) Chapter #18 2019-20 Tentative Agreement.
Financial Impact:
Major cost provisions of the Tentative Agreement include:

*A salary schedule increase of 3.50 percent, effective September 1, 201919
*Additional health and welfare cost of $1,148 per participant for the 2019-20 year

The total cost of this agreement is expected to be $3,448,426, inclusive of all salary and benefit costs.
Comments:

Background:
On September 12, 2019, the district and the California School Employees Association (CSEA) Chapter #18 reached a Tentative Agreement. This Tentative Agreement, upon ratification, will conclude negotiations between the CSEA Chapter #18 and the district for fiscal year 2019-20.

In accordance with Board Policy 4143, Assembly Bill (AB) 1200 and AB 2756, the Board is required to disclose major provisions of collective bargaining agreements before entering into a written contract. Government Code Section 3547.5 states:

“Before a public school employer enters into a written agreement with an exclusive representative covering matters within the scope of representation, the major provisions of the agreement, including, but not limited to, the costs that would be incurred by the public school employer under the agreement for the current and subsequent fiscal years, shall be disclosed at a public meeting of the public school employer in a format established for this purpose by the Superintendent of Instruction."

This provision is applicable to both single year agreements and multiyear agreements where the contract has been reopened to determine compensation adjustments in a subsequent year. It is intended to ensure that the public is aware of the known costs associated with a proposed collective bargaining agreement before it becomes binding on the district.

Additionally, the district’s Superintendent and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) are required to certify in writing that the costs incurred under a collective bargaining agreement can be met by the district during the term of the agreement. These certifications are submitted to the Board prior to the Board’s approval of the agreement. The certification shall itemize any budget revision necessary to meet the costs of the agreement in each year of its term.

AB 2756 specifies that if the district does not adopt all of the revisions to its budget needed in the current year to meet the costs of the agreement in each year of its term, the county superintendent of schools is required to issue a qualified or negative certification for the district on its next interim report.

Major financial provisions of the Tentative Agreement include:
1. A salary schedule increase of 3.50 percent for 2019-20, effective September 1, 2019.
2. Increase of the Benefit Unit Cap from $19,293 to a maximum of $20,441 for the 2019-20 year.

The expected total cost of the Tentative Agreement is $3,448,426 inclusive of all salary and benefit costs.
The total cost is already included in the Board's June 2019-20 budget adoption.

The Tentative Agreement also allows for the right to re-open negotiations for salary and/or benefits for 2019-20 in the event another collective bargaining group in the district receives a 2019-20 salary schedule increase and/or an increase to the district benefits cap and/or a decrease in employee benefits contribution and/or a change to the employee benefits contribution structure for 2019-20 that is greater than the increases in this Tentative Agreement.

Current Consideration:
Staff recommends that the Board conduct a public hearing to disclose the cost of the 2019-20 Tentative Agreement between the district and CSEA Chapter #18.
