(Non-Agenda Items) Oral Communications will occur immediately following Board and Superintendent Comments. The total time for Oral Communications shall be twenty (20) minutes. Individual presentations are limited to a maximum of three (3) minutes per individual.
Trustees are being asked to approve a request for the State to Waive a $1.1 million dollar penalty for having class sizes above 32 students in grades 1-3.
The PUBLIC HEARING is Agenda Item #1- The Vote to Approve the Waiver is Agenda Item #23.
The Waiver states that: "School sites are instructed to keep class sizes in grades 1-3 at or below 32. At one site a 33rd child was inadvertently enrolled in a 3rd/4th combination class. Even though class sizes are monitored for all 335 1st through 3rd grade classes this class was over looked until it was too late to resolve the issue.
All matters listed under the Consent Calendar are considered by the Board to be routine and will be enacted by the Board in one motion in the form listed below. There will be no discussion of these items prior to the time the Board votes on the motion unless members of the Board, staff, or the public request specific items to be discussed and/or removed from the Consent Calendar. The Superintendent and the staff recommend approval of all Consent Calendar items.

Agenda Item #2 DONATION OF FUNDS AND EQUIPMENT page 3
Total Donations: $297,345.62
29 schools received donations out of the Districts 60 schools. There are many schools who never see a donation. These schools have no art music or science taught by a properly credentialed teacher, they have no instructional aids, librarians, technology, they don't go on the same field trips or have the same educational opportunities as those schools that can fundraise. Relying on fundraising and donations to pay for Core Educational Programs creates wealth based inequities in the quality of education students receive and is illegal.

Agenda Item #24 DISTRICTWIDE FACILITIES CONDITION ASSESSMENT SERVICES PROPOSAL: page 346
This Agenda Item is asking for the Board to approve a contract with Kitchell to assess Districtwide facilities conditions and report findings for facilities improvement.
The costs are estimated to be $599,774.75 funded by the Deferred Maintenance Fund.
As a test: CUSD hired Kitchell to complete a site facilities condition assessment of Ambuehl Elementary School. The purpose was to provide a benchmark of the performance of the building and prioritize projects for maintenance, repair or removal.
Condition of Ambuehl Facilities: Poor
Should be Filed
General Buildings: Life safety, ADA, inadequate restroom quantity
Mechanical Systems: Poor condition, end of useful life, rust, corrosion. Two units inoperable
Plumbing Systems: Inoperable water heater, water fountains, calcium build up
Electrical Systems: Switchgear & panels past useful life, lamp replacement difficult, added receptacles required
Fire Alarm Systems: Panel in poor condition
Fire Sprinkler Systems: No fire sprinkler in main building
THESE ARE VIOLATIONS OF THE WILLIAMS SETTLEMENT
Estimated Repair Costs:
* Also Note that the SARC states that Ambuehl Facilities have a "Good" rating.
*Also Note that CUSD inflated its Measure M Bond needs. In those documents CUSD said Ambuehl needed $14 million in repairs.
