D.3. Recognize Sobrato High School, Albertsons/Safeway, and Clinic Champions for their Vaccine Clinic Work
Rationale:
Morgan Hill Unified School District partnered with Safeway NorCal Pharmacy Operations in the development of a vaccine clinic commencing on March 10, 2021. Securing enough Pfizer vaccines for the first and second dose clinics enabled the entire District staff, substitute pool, and childcare workers in the district access to full vaccinations prior to the full opening of schools. Because of the first clinic's success, additional clinics at Ann Sobrato High and also the Community Cultural Center were scheduled. Requests for vaccines at the clinic escalated as word spread about the Sobrato Clinic experience. When the allowable age for the Pfizer vaccine expanded to include age 16 and up, the partnership prepared additional vaccine clinics at Sobrato targeting eligible youth. Subsequently, when the allowable Pfizer vaccine age expanded to even younger children, the District invited ages 12 to 15 years of age from all over the Bay Area to get their vaccine at Sobrato School.  

To manage all the clinics, hundreds of volunteers worked at the clinic handled intake, traffic flow, and observation of those receiving vaccines. The volunteer schedule was mostly staffed with Rotary Club of Morgan Hill members but employees and community members near and far volunteered to help. Volunteers were honored at the Board's Meeting on May 4, 2021. Tonight's recognition is to appreciate two agencies and six individuals. 

Sobrato High School Staff opened their doors for many months and long hours. Sobrato and District staff supported the many facilities needs and day-to-day supply and logistic needs along with setting up and cleaning the facility. Sobrato High School Assistant Principal Joe Guinane, as site liaison, advised on set up and logistics. He responded to countless clinic needs and helped all clinic functioning, while also managing site staff to perform necessary routine activities and handle time sensitive requests.

The MHUSD Governing Board also gives tribute and honors Albertsons/Safeway NorCal Pharmacy Operations along with key representatives and staff as Clinic Champions. The Clinic's foundation, effective logistical planning, implementation, staffing, and response to changing conditions or community needs for all clinic activities couldn't have happened without the following individuals:

Alberstons Corporate Director, State & Local Government Relations Larry Carr and Safeway NorCal Pharmacy Operations Clinical Point Pharmacist Yasminda Nguyen strategized with us and took immediate action to plan the clinic and arrange staffing and appointments, while securing the Pfizer doses used at the clinics. Clinicians Shoresh Sharafi, Nidhi Dubey, and Magdalena Temes supplied, prepared, and managed the clinics and staff, oversaw and adjusted all protocols as necessary, and handled any and all urgent matters and emergencies during the daily long hours since March 10, 2021. Their hard work, conscientious decision-making, and humanistic style made the clinics exemplary and recognized throughout the bay area and beyond. 

By this experience, all clinic workers and volunteers developed a close human connection. The partnership became more of a family destined to make vaccination an efficient and positive experience for all who took advantage of getting their Pfizer dose in Morgan Hill.

I. CONSENT ITEMS
I.1. BUSINESS SERVICES
I.1.a. Approve fiscal year 2021-22 expenditure plan for Education Protection Account (Proposition 55 funds)
Rationale:
Proposition 30, The Schools and Local Public Safety Protection Act of 2012, temporarily increased the State’s sales tax rate and the personal income tax rates for upper-income taxpayers through 2018-19. Proposition 55,Tax Extension to Fund Education and Healthcare, passed in November 2016 extends by an additional 12 years (through 2030) the temporary personal income tax increases enacted in 2012. The passage of Proposition 30 and Proposition 55 did not provide additional revenues to schools; however, it did prevent any mid-year cuts to education funding that would have otherwise occurred. 

The funds received from these tax measures are deposited into the Education Protection Account (EPA) and there are several accountability measures on these funds including:

  • Requires school governing boards to make spending determinations at an open session of a public meeting
  • Prohibits funds from being used for administrative costs
  • Requires districts to annually publish accounting of funds on its website
  • Inclusion of Proposition 30 and Proposition 55 revenues and expenditures in annual financial audits

For Fiscal Year 2021-22, it is estimated the District will receive $1,602,838 in funding as a result of the passage of Proposition 55.  Staff recommends that the Board approve the attached allocations.

I.1.b. Approve participation in purchasing consortiums
Rationale:
Pursuant to Government Code 6500 et seq. and Public Contract Code Section 20118, the District is allowed to “piggyback” on any public agency bid and participate in state and national purchasing cooperatives. The District actively participates in several cooperative purchasing programs to obtain effective and low-cost products and services. The combined volume of partners in the cooperative creates significant discounts. In addition, participating in cooperative purchasing programs increases efficiency by reducing time spent to source, award and administer contracts.

The District has determined that participation in the following cooperative purchasing programs is essential to ensure the District receives the lowest price while using Staff’s time efficiently:


California Multiple Award Schedules (CMAS)
CalSAVE (Statewide Program of the Monterey County Office of Education)
General Services Administration (GSA)
National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO)
NCPA - National Cooperative Purchasing Agency
Omnia Partners OMNIA
Pennsylvania Education Purchasing Program for Microcomputers (PEPPM)
School Employers Association of California (SEAC)
School Project for Utility Rate Reduction (SPURR)
Sourcewell Cooperative Purchasing
The Cooperative Purchasing Network (TCPN)
Western States Contracting Alliance (WCSA-NASPO – Subsidiary Entity)

I.1.c. Approve authorization to enter into an electricity supply agreement
Rationale:
The District currently procures electricity from Direct Energy Business LLC through a supply agreement that ends with the District's late June and early July 2021 meter reads.  In order to lock in the pricing for a new contract, Staff recommends that the Board provide authorization to Deputy Superintendent to enter into a new electricity supply arrangement for terms not to exceed 36 months at:

(a) variable rates, set by reference to a published "index" rate, with a specified service fee adder, or

(b) fixed rates, or

(c) some combination of the above rates

Pre-authorization is necessary since fixed rate offers for electricity supply must be accepted on the same business day as the supplier makes their rate offer. Sometimes, an even shorter acceptance window is required. Fixed rates for future energy supply are based primarily on wholesale markets. As with other markets, prices move all the time, up or down. Suppliers will not buy at wholesale until they know that the customer will buy from them as a retail customer which is why the district must accept or decline the same day. 

By approving this authorization, the District can enter into an agreement with an electricity supplier when the optimum rate is determined.  Staff will bring back the agreement with the supplier and the rates for ratification in August 2021.

 
Financial Impact:
Electric payments are paid out of the General Fund. Total cost is highly dependent on usage, but for the proceeding fiscal year the contract with Direct Energy Business LLC was approximately $236,000.

J.3. Public Hearing: Disclosure of District reserves and reasons (7:10 PM)
Rationale:
Public Hearing:

In accordance with SB 858 and Education Code 42127, school districts are required to include the following information for review and discussion with their adopted and revised budgets:

  • The minimum recommended reserve for economic uncertainties for each fiscal year identified in the budget
  • The combined assigned and unassigned ending fund balances that are in excess of the minimum recommended reserve for economic uncertainties for each fiscal year identified in the budget, pursuant to Education Code Section 33128(a). The fund balances included are Fund 01, General Fund, and Fund 17, Special Reserve Fund for Other Than Capital Outlay Projects.
  • A statement of reasons that substantiates the need for an assigned and unassigned ending fund balance in excess of the minimum recommended reserve for economic uncertainties for each fiscal year

Beginning in 2015-16, school districts must include this information each time it files an adopted or revised budget with the County Superintendent of Schools. The County Superintendent of Schools shall determine whether a school district’s adopted or revised budget complied with these requirements.

SB 858 also includes provisions for reserve caps or limits if four State revenue conditions are met. For 2021-22, it is anticipated that all of the conditions will be met and the reserve limits will be activated the following fiscal year (2022-23).

As amended by Senate Bill (SB) 751 in September 2017, the reserve limit only applies in a fiscal year immediately following a fiscal year in which the State makes a deposit of at least three percent (3%) of the Proposition 98 funding into the State’s Public School System Stabilization Account (the reserve that was created by Proposition 2).  If the reserve cap is activated, a district with an ADA of 400,000 or less would be limited to a combined assigned or unassigned ending balance of ten percent (10%) in the General Fund and Special Reserve Fund for Other Than Capital Outlay. The County Superintendent of Schools may grant an exemption of this requirement for up to two consecutive fiscal years within a three year period to any district that documents extraordinary fiscal circumstances that substantiate the need for a reserve in excess of the limit.

In March 2021, the California Department of Education released the 2019-20 Unaudited Actual reports which allow for the calculation of the average reserve levels by district type – for unified school districts the average General Fund plus Special Reserve for Other Than Capital Outlay Projects increased to 18.82%. This is remarkably close to the 16.67% minimum (2 months of payroll) recommended reserves for local governments by the Governmental Finance Officers Association and the District's Board policy.

J.6. District's broadband internet efforts to support students and potential partnership with Balance Access (7:55 PM)
Rationale:
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and exacerbated the digital divide, impacting students’ ability to access their educational program. Although great efforts have been made by the District to provide hotspots, computing devices, and funding for data plans these are only short-term solutions. Addressing long-term broadband access and infrastructure is critical to ensuring all families have access to affordable and robust internet.  

The District is committed to working together with its community partners and elected officials to:

  • Ensure that every District student has access to technology to support online learning
  • Expand internet access to include all families located within the District's geographical boundaries
  • Advocate to local and state leaders to expand internet access in order to close the digital divide

On March 30, 2021 the Board passed Resolution No. 29 in support of several key legislative bills that provide funding to support the development of broadband infrastructure. In addition, Staff has been working closely with municipalities, third party internet service providers and non-profits to find affordable or no-cost solutions for internet access.

South Valley Internet, a local internet service provider, is spearheading a new project to bring internet access to the most at-need families in Morgan Hill and San Martin areas. South Valley Internet has established a new non-profit (Balanced Access) in an effort to grant free, stable, and fast internet to MHUSD families. If the District wants to partner with Balanced Access to explore options, the District would need to commit staff time to the Project. Staff may also need to use legal resources to create agreements which would be brought to the Board at a future date to formalize the partnership and allow the District to share disaggregated student information such as addresses of families experiencing internet access challenges related to geographic or financial barriers. 

Veronica Hoyle-Kent, Director of Technology and Enrollment, and Elise Brentnall, Chief Operating Officer of South Valley Internet, will provide information about Balanced Access. Staff seeks to determine the level of Board support for formalizing a partnership with Balanced Access. If the Board would like to pursue a partnership a formal agreement would be brought to the Board at a future Board meeting for approval.
