Quick Summary / Abstract:
In November 1988, California voters passed Proposition 98, also known as The Classroom Instructional Improvement and Accountability Act.

In return, all public schools in California are required annually to prepare SARCs and disseminate them to the public.
SARCs are intended to provide the public with the following information:  demographic data, school safety and climate for learning, academic data, school completion rates, class sizes, teacher and staff information, curriculum and instruction descriptions, postsecondary preparation, and fiscal and expenditure data.
By submitting the SARCs to the Board, the sites assure that each SARC follows state guidelines pursuant to EC sections 33126, 33126.1, 35256, and 52052, and ESEA Section 1111(h)(2).
Recommended Motion:
District staff recommends approval of the submitted SARCs for each District school site.

Staff recommends approval of the Memorandum of Understanding with the California School Employees Association, Chapter #90.

The cost for the increase in the two positions is approximately $17,000 per year.

X.C. ACTION ITEM: Approval of Agency Agreement for New Teacher & Leadership Development IMPACT Intern Program with Tulare Office of Education
Quick Summary / Abstract:
This agreement with Tulare County Office of Education is a continuance of past agreements we have with the agency.  As with past practice, this is a two-year agreement.  The agreement contains guidelines for staff support of interns, responsibilities of the parties, and the cost for services.  This agreement may be terminated by either party with 30 days written notice for no reason.  This agreement includes the same provisions as previous contracts.
The State of California continues to experience a teacher shortage.  This shortage has impacted our district significantly.  Using Interns to fill positions that we are unable to fill with credentialed teachers is an acceptable and practical option.  We have a very good relationship with the IMPACT program with 3 interns from the agency currently employed by the district.

Recommended Motion:
Staff recommends approval of the Agency Agreement with the Tulare County Office of Education.
Financial Impact:
The cost for the teacher mentor program is approximately $4,320. There is an additional expense of $1,000 for the program which can be transferred to the Intern.
