7.b.1  First reading of proposed restructuring plan for Harriet Tubman Village Charter School. Under The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, all Title I schools that do not make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for two consecutive years are identified as Program Improvement (PI). A requirement for schools in PI Year 4 is to prepare a restructuring plan including alternative governance at the school to be implemented in Year 5. As the charter school authorizer, the District is responsible to work with the charter to ensure that it has taken the appropriate steps in compliance with NCLB, rather than to take direct responsibility for actually implementing those requirements.

7.b.2  Approval of the revocation of A. Phillip Randolph Leadership Academy charter under Education Code section 47607(c)(d) due to violation of provisions of the charter in violation of Education Code section 47607(c)(1); violation of fiscal mismanagement in Education Code section 47607(c)(3); violation of law in violation of Education Code section 47607(c)(4). District staff conducted a thorough investigation of the facts and issues brought forth in the Notice of Intent of Cure. District staff submits that Randolph materially violated the Charter, has failed to meet generally accepted accounting principles and engaged in fiscal mismanagement, and has violated various provisions of law. A charter agency has a responsibility to take action where it has notice of a pattern or series of fiscally irresponsible actions and pursuant to Education Code section 47604(c), a charter agency may be subject to liability for failure to prevent further injuries by expeditious revocation of the charter.

7.b.3  Review and accept the School Assistance and Intervention Team (SAIT) Fifth Progress Report for Horton Elementary School as required by the Public Schools Accountability Act (PSAA) of 1991: Immediate Intervention/Underperforming Schools Program (II/USP). The PSAA established the II/USP for schools in deciles one through five on the Academic Performance Index (API) that fail to meet their API growth targets. Schools that do not meet acceptable progress criteria are identified as state-monitored. Currently, Horton and Euclid Elementary Schools are identified as state monitored schools for 2005-06. The Board approved a contract with WestEd to provide a SAIT for Horton Elementary School on October 12, 2004. The Board reviewed the Corrective Action Plan for Horton Elementary School on December 14, 2004. The first four progress reports for Horton described the implementation of the recommended corrective actions and were reviewed by the Board on April 26, July 26, and October 25, 2005, and February 28, 2006. Horton has fully achieved 64 (80 percent) of its 80 benchmarks. Of the remaining 16 benchmarks, the school has substantially achieved eight, partially achieved four, and minimally achieved four. Key issues were identified by WestEd that affect full implementation of all benchmarks. The school was unable to establish a mathematics administrator position because the Board no longer supports the position at any school. Professional development programs have not been fully completed by school administrators, resource teachers and three new teachers. The three multi-grade classrooms do not assure documented compliance with State-defined grade level instructional minutes for reading/language arts and mathematics.

8.b.13  One-calendar-year extensions of the District Intern Certificate to seven teachers who have not yet completed the requirements of the Districtís General Education Intern Program, pending final test results to complete program requirements.
