PUBLIC HEARING ON 2012-13 FLEXIBILITY TRANSFERS (ED CODE §42605) (Mrs. Betts)

Ed Code §42605 grants districts flexibility in Tier III categorical programs and authorizes districts to use these funds for any educational purpose. For the 2008-09 fiscal year through the 2014-15 fiscal year, inclusive, local educational agencies that use the flexibility provision of this section shall be deemed to be in compliance with the program and funding requirements contained in statutory, regulatory and provisional language. As a condition of receipt of the funds, the governing board is required, at a regularly scheduled open hearing held prior to and independent of a meeting where the governing board of the district adopts the annual budget, to take testimony from the public, identify any program that is proposed to be closed, discuss, approve or disapprove the proposed use of funding, and make explicit the purposes for which the funding will be used.

ACTION ITEM

 
 

23.

ACT TO ADOPT RESOLUTION 12-03, APPROVING A FACILITY FEE JUSTIFICATION REPORT AND ADOPTING STATUTORY SCHOOL FACILITY FEES (Mr. Etter)

In order to impose statutory school fees, also known as Level 1 fees, the school district must prepare and adopt a Developer Fee Justification and Impact Analysis report as required by Government Code Section 17620.

The recommended action is to approve and adopt Resolution 12-03 as presented.

24.

ACT TO APPROVE THE CREATION OF A NEW FUND 13 AS THE CAFETERIA SPECIAL REVENUE FUND (Mrs. Betts)

This request is to open Fund 13 for the Cafeteria. Currently, all cafeteria financial activity is in Fund 93 which is an account not a fund. The difference between an account and a fund is where the actual cash is being held. With an account, the cash is held in a bank outside of the County Treasury. With a fund, all cash is held at the County Treasury.

There are many advantages to moving from an account to a fund:

• All activity including payroll, purchase orders and vendor payments would be tied to the county financial system increasing efficiency and accuracy of transactions.
• It improves the District’s General Fund cash flow by allowing payrolls to come directly out of the cafeteria funds instead of from the General Fund and then being reimbursed.
• The Cafeteria’s ending fund balance would also be included in our aggregate fund balance which allows us to temporarily borrow from it if necessary to cover potential cash shortages in the General Fund.
• Cafeteria funds will also earn a higher rate of interest in the County Treasury than currently earning in a bank.

The recommended action is to create Fund 13 Cafeteria Special Revenue Fund.
