Notice of Addendum 
7.a.1  Approval of Provisional Internship Permits for teachers assigned to severe shortage areas. The California Code of Regulations, Title 5 Sections 80021 and 80021.1, require the Board of Education to approve the staffing of teachers under a Provisional Internship Permit issued by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing in severe shortage areas such as mathematics, science, special education and bilingual assignments. This permit is available when an employing agency knows that there will be a teacher vacancy and is unable to recruit a suitable candidate. The Provisional Internship Permit was created in response to the phasing out of Emergency Long-Term Teaching Permits by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. The Provisional Internship Permit allows the district to fill an immediate staffing need in severe shortage areas by hiring an individual who has not met the subject matter competence requirement needed to enter an internship program. The Provisional Internship Permit is valid for one year and is renewable upon the completion of all renewal requirements. Prior to employment, the candidate is required to sign a professional agreement committing to meeting the Highly Qualified Teacher Requirement as stipulated by the federal No Child Left Behind Act.
7.b.1  Approval of proposed restructuring plan for Clark Middle 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). There are required services and/or interventions that schools must implement during each year they are in PI status. 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. A summary of the key elements of Clark’s restructuring proposal and staff recommendations are provided as an exhibit. The full proposal is posted on the district’s website.
7.b.2  Approval of proposed restructuring plan for Hoover 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). There are required services and/or interventions that schools must implement during each year they are in PI status. 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. A summary of the key elements of Hoover’s restructuring proposal and staff recommendations are provided as an exhibit. The full proposal is posted on the district’s website.

7.b.3  Approval 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.4 
Review and accept the School Assistance and Intervention Team (SAIT) Fifth Progress Report for Euclid Elementary School as required by the Public Schools Accountability Act (PSAA) of 1999: 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 Euclid Elementary School on October 11, 2005. The Board reviewed the Corrective Action Plan for Euclid Elementary School on December 13, 2005. The first progress report for Euclid described the implementation of the corrective actions and was reviewed by the Board on April 25, 2006. Euclid has fully achieved 29 of its 30 required benchmarks, and five of seven recommended benchmarks. Two key issues were identified by WestEd that affect full implementation of all benchmarks. Professional development programs have not been fully completed by the school principal and assistant principal and 20% of the school’s teachers. The math resource teacher provides a limited amount of on site support.

7.b.6  Consideration and Action on the Proposed Facilities Use Agreement for the Jola Community School/Update on the Status of the Charter of the Jola Community School. (Posted 8/4/06)
7.c.1  The San Diego Gas & Electric Company (hereinafter referred to as SDG&E) is desirous of securing an easement and right way to erect, construct, change the size of, improve, reconstruct, relocate, repair, maintain and use facilities consisting of: 1) underground facilities and appurtenances for the transmission and distribution of electricity; 2) pipelines and appurtenances for any and all purposes; 3) communication facilities and appurtenances, excluding digital, cellular or other mobile communication infrastructures, together with the right of ingress thereto and egress therefrom, in, upon, over, under and across said easement located upon the Future Thurgood Marshall Middle School site owned by the San Diego Unified School District of San Diego County, California (hereinafter referred to as District). Because the electric and communications facilities and pipelines will benefit the District as well as the community, no consideration will required for the easement. Approval of this agenda item will authorize the chief facilities officer the authority to execute any documents in connection therewith.
8.a.10  Approval of district GATE certification for district staff in accordance with Article 4, Section 3855 of Title 5 California Code of Regulations. The State Administrative Code allows the Board of Education to certify teachers for gifted and talented education who have completed a prescribed course of study conducted by the district. The GATE Department has certified that the teachers on the exhibit have successfully completed the course of study leading to the recommendation for Board (District) certification.
8.a.11  Approve Addendum, effective January 1, 2006, to the San Diego City Schools Vision Plan to convert into a Self-Funded Plan. This addendum allows the district to move from a pool environment where it did not have its own claims experience into an individual self-funded environment within VEBA.
8.b.24  Approval of revised or newly developed 2006-07 Single Plans for Student Achievement (SPSA) for 9 schools. Through SB 374, the state holds each school accountable for developing and implementing a Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The SPSA identifies and addresses the instructional needs of students and specifies how categorical funds provided through the Consolidated Application will be used to accomplish the goals outlined in the plan. The SPSA is developed or modified through an annual planning cycle. The School Site Council (SSC) in collaboration with the site instructional leadership team is responsible for developing, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating the SPSA. Site principals, SSC Chairpersons, and the District Advisory Council for Compensatory Education (DAC) received training on November 28, November 29, December 7, and December 8, 2005, regarding specific plan requirements. In addition, certificated staff with extensive knowledge and experience reviewed each plan and provided individual assistance to schools to ensure that each SPSA meets state requirements and that the plan and associated categorical budget allocations are in alignment. The local governing board must review and approve each school’s SPSA before it may be implemented. This is the second board report bringing forward the 2006-2007 SPSA and categorical budget summaries of 9 additional schools for Board approval. Copies of each SPSA, budget summary, and required signed assurances page are available in the Parent Support and Board Services Office, Eugene Brucker Education Center, 4100 Normal Street, Room 2153, San Diego, CA 92103.
8.b.46 Approval of Agreements with 37 state-approved Supplemental Educational Service (SES) providers to provide after-school services to students at schools in Program Improvement Year 2 and beyond during the 2006-2007 school year, as specified in the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001. Agreement dates are September 1, 2006 through June 30, 2007. Total funding will not exceed the District’s 2006-2007 Title I five percent (5%) set-aside of $2,250,000 for Supplemental Educational Services. District Budget No. 5539-30107-00-5107-1000-1110-01000-0903 will be used. A list of the Supplemental Educational Service providers submitting Agreements for approval is attached as Exhibit A.
Attachment A
 
8.c.1  Resolution of the San Diego Unified School District supporting the applications to purchase relocatable classrooms leased from the Office of Public School Construction (OPSC). The Office of Public School Construction (OPSC) requires a certification that the Governing Board of the district has authorized the submission of the application to purchase the relocatables offered for sale due to the phasing-out of the State Relocatable Classroom Program. The relocatables are currently being leased from the State for $4,000 per year. Since the purchase price for each relocatable is also $4,000, the budgeted lease amount would be applied to the purchase price. Deadline to submit application to purchase is August 11, 2006
8.c.2  Resolution Of The San Diego Unified School District Supporting The Applications For Eligibility Determination For The State School Facility Program (Form SAB 50-03).
