4. CHANGE ORDER NO. 4, BID NO. 1617-20, TESORO HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING D PROJECT

Funding: Not Specified

Board Agenda page 239

CUSDWatch Comment

3-13-2017 $9.41 million dollar project awarded to Paul C. Miller.

*Error- this bid was approved on 4-19-17 Agenda Item #6 page 158

9-13-2017 page 399: Change Order #1- $59,837.11 Relocation of Storage and adding additional parking. The removal of unforeseen asbestos in roof mastic

Abatement of ACM at Existing Modular Buildings $9,613.89

6-20-2018 page 268: Change Order #2- $80,615.53 Relocation of leased modular classrooms to avoid an easement with Santa Margarita Water  District.

9-12-2018 page 241: Change Order #3- $31,531.03 

11-14-2018: Change order #4- $242,641.80.

If the Board approves Change Order #4 the total project cost will be $9.82 million

All of these changes resulted from an unforeseen easement with the Santa Margarita Water District and ADA compliance issues.

How can there be an "unforeseen" property easement with the water district? 

CUSD does not maintain accurate property records and often fails to record deeds. For example- CUSD had no idea that it owned Parcel 125-096-82. In fact, all four parcels of land that Tesoro High School sits on are in the Right Of Way for the 241 Extension of the toll road and CUSD has done nothing to protect the property rights of taxpayers, or the health and safety of staff and students

In January of 2018, CUSD accepted a Quit Claim Deed for Parcel 125-096-82 but has not taken any further action to took Quiet Title on all four Tesoro parcels.

"Our civil plans show improvements outside of the southerly property line by 5’±. We have confirmed this with the found monuments in the field and a map of tract 17561 recorded in the County of Orange. Is there any lot line adjustment to the property that we do not know about? Are there supposed to be improvements south of our property line? We did notice that the found monuments in the field, while they do match the location as shown on tract 17561, the LS number differs. I am including a copy of plan sheet C-1.08 which shows the property line and the improvements outside of it."

Board Agenda page 870

CUSDWatch Comment

Monetization of Student Data- without Parental Consent.

This is a Three Party Agreement regarding a 5-year study that started in 2015:

(1) Orange County Department of Education (OCDE), 

(2) CUSD, and

(3) Early Quality Systems LLC

"Early Quality Systems (EQS) is aware that California has more children ages 0 to 5 than any other state and the highest number of children in the U.S. living in poverty, that the needs of these families have increased as funding for early learning programs has been cut dramatically, and we have read research that confirms the importance of quality early learning experiences to effectively prepare young children for school readiness." 
 

iPinwheel is both a student information data system and a quality rating and improvement data system. The vision is to provide a single, integrated data system that serves a duel benefit:

1. Enables State/Head Start Early Childhood Education Providers to utilize the data system to track and report their required State/Head Start data and program requirements (Child Assessment, Eligibility, Monthly Attendance, Parent-Teacher Conferences, Meals and Snacks Report, etc.); and

2. Enables the same required data to inform and automate the QRIS site rating process.

Parents must give permission for the collection of personally identifiable data.Board Agenda page 874 "School District agrees to obtain parental consent on the "Authorization for Use or Disclosure of student Information To and From Preschool agencies" form Attachment "F".

15. MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING WITH MODERN STATES ALLIANCE

Board Agenda page 883

CUSDWatch Comment

CLEP EXAM PILOT PROGRAM CAPO VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL

Currently the average cost to earn a bachelor’s degree at a California State University is between $150,000 and $180,000.

The average time to earn that degree is 5 and a half to 6 years.

Capistrano Valley High School (CVHS) would like to increase college readiness and affordability for its students. CVHS proposes the utilization of College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams, to increase students’ accessibility to earning college credit while in high school.

A New York based entrepreneurial group, Modern States Education Alliance offers online CLEP prep courses for free to high school students.

CVHS will run a “Limited” CLEP testing center open only to CVHS students during the initial pilot year. Testing will take place outside of normal school hours in Computer Lab E-1. CVHS is requesting to partner with Modern States to guarantee at least 100 free CLEP exams for students who complete any 1 or more free online exam prep courses.

The Memorandum of Understanding will provide Modern States the opportunity to state that they have partnered with CVHS in this endeavor. If the pilot is successful at CVHS, students at all District high schools will be able to test at CVHS. 

After providing proof of completion of a prep course the students will receive a waiver covering the cost of College Board’s fee for the test. These exams currently cost $87 per exam. Students will have their $30 test center fee reimbursed after they provide their receipt to Modern States. Students not participating in the free online exam prep will need to pay College Board for each exam through their “My Account” account. They will be required to pay the additional $30 testing fee without being reimbursed.

18. FIRST QUARTER REPORT – WILLIAMS SETTLEMENT LEGISLATION UNIFORM COMPLAINT

Board Agenda page 976

Williams Complaint Report Quarter #1 July 1 - September 30, 2018 

No Complaints! Facilities are perfect- there is Equity in instructional materials and no teacher mis-assignments!

CUSDWatch Comment

Textbooks and Instructional Materials are great... even though CUSD would not spend the extra $8,000 to get EVERY student a new math book. The books were so old they were out of print and could not even be found used. Trustees justified this by stating math has not changed. Really? Has anyone heard about "Common Core" math?

The audio for this item was unbelievable! CUSDWatch: CUSD Does Not Have Money to Buy New Math Text Books... Unbelievable Board Audio! A Must Listen 

 

19. ANNUAL REPORT – WILLIAMS SETTLEMENT LEGISLATION, 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR

Board Agenda page 979

CUSDWatch Comment 

Per Education Code Section 1240, the County Superintendent of Schools; Al Mijares, is charged with the responsibility of checking that all Decile 1-3 schools are in compliance with Williams legislation.

Decile 1 schools are the 10 per cent of schools with the highest proportion of students from low socio-economic communities, whereas decile 10 schools are the 10 per cent with the lowest proportion of such students.

In CUSD there are two Schools:

Kinoshita Elementary and Viejo Elementary

OCDE identified 2 facilities issues:

Kinoshita: Boys Restroom by room 608 has one restroom stall door with rust and a loose piece of metal at the bottom.

Viejo: Boys Restroom by room 6B has a urinal that is leaking. 

 

 

 

20. FIELDWORK TRAINING AFFILIATION AGREEMENT WITH CAPELLA UNIVERSITY

Board Agenda page 986

CUSDWatch Comment

Approval of this agreement will mean that CUSD will pair a site employee who is properly credentialed to train a student counselor in training from Capella University.

Credential candidates from Capella University are not District employees and are unpaid. There is no fiscal impact to CUSD.

Williams Complaints are there to protect children when school districts are not there to protect them.

The Eliezer Williams, et al., vs. State of California, et al. (Williams) case was filed as a class action in 2000 in San Francisco County Superior Court.

The case was settled in 2004, and as a result school districts must provide public school students with equal access to instructional materials, safe and decent school facilities, and qualified teachers. 

Board Policy 1312.4 mandates school districts establish policies and procedures to resolve deficiencies related to textbooks and instructional materials, teacher vacancies or mis-assignments, and facility conditions posing a threat to student/staff health or safety. Furthermore, Education Code § 35186 requires any deficiencies or complaints be reported to the Board of Trustees at a regularly scheduled public meeting each quarter.

CUSDWatch Comment

I have filed many Williams complaints when I have seen evidence that our students are not being properly protected by CUSD. I took the Tesoro High School complaints all the way up to the State of California through the appeals process. What I learned is that when the State implemented "Local Control" the Williams legislation was gutted. Under "Local Control" all the County and State Boards of Education can do is make "recommendations" they cannot force bad school districts into action. Parents and taxpayers need to make sure that they have a strong Board of Trustees. CUSD does not have Trustees that understand that they were elected by the People to represent taxpayers and students. That is because most of them were elected by the Unions so everyone at CUSD is sitting on the same side of the Collective Bargaining Table.

The following Williams Complaints regarding Facilities have been filed in October, November and December:

Clarence Lobo ES

Concordia ES

Las Palmas ES 

Marblehead ES

RH Dana ES

Truman Benedict ES 

Bernice Ayers MS

Shorecliffs MS

San Clemente HS

San Juan Hills HS

Tesoro HS I

Tesoro HS II

CUSD never made this public in an agenda item.

 

 

21. INTERNSHIP CREDENTIAL PROGRAM AGREEMENT WITH NATIONAL UNIVERSITY

Board Agenda page 990

CUSDWatch Comment

Approval of this agreement will mean that CUSD will hire an internship credential candidate to complete the remaining requirements for the preliminary credential with the support of the university and an identified site-support provider, while employed by the District

Internship credential candidates are hired in already identified positions. There is no additional fiscal impact.

22. STUDENT TEACHING AND PRACTICUM AGREEMENT WITH NATIONAL UNIVERSITY

Board Agenda page 998

CUSDWatch Comment

Approval of this agreement will mean that CUSD will allow several student teachers to be placed at several District schools.

Student Teachers are not District employees and are unpaid. There is no fiscal impact.
