Board Comment:
Mr. Panas commended Ms. Gamba for the way in which budget information is communicated to the public for better transparency. He offered his opinion that the Superintendent should provide a balanced budget for the Board’s consideration. He remarked about the high fund balance from the infusion of one time money and would like to see an analysis of one-time funds and restricted funds. He had additional remarks about the informative appendices. Ms. Gamba provided information about changes in school districts and shifting thinking about budgeting. Mr. Panas concluded by wondering about balanced budget projections through 2020-2022 and FCMAT consultation. Ms. Gamba shared information about the 45-day revision, the Board’s priorities, and balancing the 2018-2019 budget. She said the FCMAT teams have much more urgent areas in the state to attend to and this is not a district needing attention at this time.

Mr. Phillips paraphrased a quote from Delaine Easton about budgets being statements of priorities. He spoke about his priorities regarding the need for assistant principals at schools sites and class size reduction for secondary classes. He also spoke about counselor staffing allocations, teacher retention and salary increases, and budget cuts to programs. Ms. Gamba provided clarification regarding counselor allocation funding.

Ms. Cuevas spoke about informed decisions based on facts and guidance allowed to staff in making decisions. Ms. Gamba spoke about the budget parameters provided to the Board over several presentations and changes made from Board recommendations dealing with a multi-year plan.

Superintendent Duffy responded that the Board could not have it both ways. Staff is trying to follow Board direction to review contracts determining appropriate spending while finding places to save funds. Mr. Mount-Benites spoke about staff budget development resulting from Board consensus and direction determined through study sessions.

Further Board discussion continued about cutting of programs.

President Block closed the public hearing.

F.5. Resolution No. 92-1617 Making Determinations and Adopting the Notice of Exemption Relating to the Design, Installation, and Commissioning of Energy Conservation Measures
Speaker:
Lisa LeBlanc, Associate Superintendent Facilities, M&O, Bond
Comments:

The District desires to enter into agreements with qualified firms for the assessment, engineering, design, procurement, construction management, installation, construction, training, monitoring, and verification of lighting and controls (“Project”) to enable the conservation of thermal, electrical, or other energy (“Energy Conservation Measures”) at the following existing District sites:

  1. Bayview Elementary School, located at 3001 16th Street, San Pablo, CA 94806;

  2. Fairmont Elementary School, located at 724 Kearney Street, El Cerrito, CA 94530;

  3. Hercules Middle and High School, located at 1900 Refugio Valley Road, Hercules, CA 94547; and

  4. Lovonya DeJean Middle School, located at 3400 MacDonald Avenue, Richmond, CA 94805.

The guidelines for the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”), California Code of Regulations Title 14, Chapter 3 (“State CEQA Guidelines”), exempt certain projects from further CEQA evaluation, including projects consisting of the minor alteration of existing public structures or facilities involving negligible or no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency's determination (“Class 1 Exemption”; Cal. Code Regs., tit. 14, § 15301).  Additionally, the State CEQA Guidelines exempt certain projects pursuant to a “common sense” exemption set forth in Cal. Code Regs., tit.14, § 15061, subd. (b)(3) (“Common Sense Exemption”).  The projects are exempt pursuant to the Common Sense Exemption because the effect of the Energy Conservation Measures will increase energy efficiency and clean energy generation, which does not have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment.

The projects are eligible for the Class 1 and Common Sense Exemptions and thus the District is entitled to file a Notice of Exemption for the Project with the County Clerk.  The filing of the Notice of Exemptions shall start a thirty-five (35) day statute of limitations period on legal challenges to the District’s decision that the projects are exempt from CEQA.


Recommended Motion:

Approve the Resolution No. 92-1617 Making Determinations and Adopting the Notices of Exemption Relating to the Energy Conservation Measures Projects.

F.6. Resolution No. 93-1617 Public Hearing to make Findings to Determine the Best Interests of District Required by Govt. Code § 4217.12 and Approving the Contracts for the Design, Installation, and Commissioning of Energy Conservation Measures (Lighting Retrofit) with Energy Conservation Options for Bayview Elementary and Hercules Middle and High School and ReGreen for the Fairmont Elementary and Lovanya Dejean Middle School.
Speaker:
Lisa LeBlanc, Asssociate Superintendent Facilities, Bond, M&O
Comments:

The District is authorized to contract for the design, installation and commissioning of Energy Conservation Measures pursuant to Government Code section 4217.10 et seq.  The District seeks to enter an agreement for the assessment, engineering, design, procurement, construction management, installation, construction, training, monitoring, and verification of lighting and controls (“Energy Conservation Measures Contract”) with Regreen and Energy Conservation Options for the following existing District sites:

  1. Bayview Elementary School, located at 3001 16th Street, San Pablo, CA 94806; ]

  2. Fairmont Elementary School, located at 724 Kearney Street, El Cerrito, CA 94530;

  3. Hercules Middle and High School, located at 1900 Refugio Valley Road, Hercules, CA 94547; and

  4. Lovonya DeJean Middle School, located at 3400 MacDonald Avenue, Richmond, CA 94805.

    The District received proposals for this project on May 25, 2017, and determined that the proposal from Regreen for the Fairmount Elementary and Lovanya DeJean Middle School and Energy Conservation Options for the Bayview Elementary and Hercules Middle and High School, provided the best value to the District pursuant to the procurement set forth in Government Code section 4217 et seq.  The cost to the District for the projects will be less than the anticipated marginal cost to the District of thermal, electrical, or other energy that would have been consumed by the District in the absence of the projects.  As well, the District’s payment to Regreen and Energy Conservation Options is anticipated to be offset by other benefits provided under the terms of the Contracts.

    Pursuant to Government Code section 4217.10 et seq., the Governing Board of the District held a public hearing on June 14, 2017, with respect to the District entering into the Contracts.  The District did not receive any public protest relating to the project.


Recommended Motion:

Conduct public hearing and adopt the attached Resolution No. 93-1617 to Make Findings to Determine the Best Interests of District Required by Govt. § 4217.12 and approve the Energy Conservation and Measures Contracts.

G.14. Ratification of Negotiated Change Orders
Speaker:
Lisa LeBlanc, Associate Superintendent Facilities, M&O, Bond
Comments:

Staff is seeking ratification of Change Orders on the following current District construction projects: Pinole Valley High School New Campus (time extension only), Korematsu Middle School New Building. Change Orders are fully executed by the District upon signature by the Superintendent’s designee.  Board ratification is the final step required under state law in order to complete payment and contract adjustment.

In accordance with Public Contract Code 20118.4, the Board, by ratifying these Change Orders, finds that it would have been futile to publicly bid the work in question because of the tight time frames to complete this work without affecting the operations of the District, and that the public is best served by having this work completed by the contractor on the project.

Ratify negotiated Change Orders as noted.
