Board Meeting Highlights – March 22nd, 2017
At its March 22nd meeting, The FUSD Board of Education:
Approved administrative appointments - Superintendent Morris announced the approval of three administrative appointments: Brier Elementary School Assistant Principal, Kimberley Pedrotti, was named Principal at Chadbourne Elementary School; Dr. DiShawn Givens was named Educational Equity Coordinator; and Dr. Matthew Campbell was named Director of Student Support Services effective July 1st.
Received annual update of the Local Control Accountability Plan - The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a critical part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Each school district must engage parents, students, employees, and the community in the development of the plan. The plan is designed to describe the district's vision for students, annual goals and specific actions the district will take to achieve the vision and goals. The LCAP must focus on eight areas identified as state priorities over a three-year period. The eight (8) priorities include: Basic Services, Common Core Standards, Parental Involvement, Student Achievement, Student Engagement, School Climate, Course Access and other Student Outcomes. The review included an assessment of the effectiveness of the specific actions and describes any changes to the actions or goals the Local Education Agency (LEA) will take as a result of the review and assessment. The 2016-17 Annual Update will be included as part of the district’s 2017-18 LCAP, which is currently being developed by the LCAAC, based on parent, staff, and student feedback and input.

Authorized Staff to enter into an agreement with Rodan Builders Inc. for the Construction of Priority 4, Package 1 - Information Technology (IT) Upgrade Projects at Azevada, Brier, Glenmoor, and Mattos Elementary Schools and Fremont Adult School - Staff recommended entering into an agreement with Rodan Builders Inc. for the Priority 4, Package 1 - IT Upgrade projects (Bid No. 186-2-15-17) in the amount of $3,846,000. This bid package is currently within the total budget for all five sites, but based on Rodan Builder’s breakdown of cost per site, the Brier and Glenmoor sites have a construction budget shortfall. Conversely, staff anticipates a construction savings at the Azevada and Fremont Adult School sites, and therefore recommends budget reallocation in the amounts of $60,000 from Azevada to Brier and $175,000 from Fremont Adult School to Glenmoor. The cost of this work is within the budget for the IT Upgrade projects under Series B of the Measure E bond.
Authorized staff to enter into an agreement with Extenda Networks Inc. for the construction of Priority 4, Package 3 - Information Technology (IT) Upgrade Projects at Gomes, Leitch, Mission San Jose, Mission Valley and Warm Springs Elementary Schools - Staff recommended entering into an agreement with Extenda Networks Inc. for the Priority 4, Package 3 - IT Upgrade projects (Bid No. 187-2-22-17) in the amount of $2,990,200. The cost of this work is within the budget for the IT Upgrade projects under Series B of the Measure E bond.
