Through negotiations, an agreement has been reached with VETA for 2012/2013. Provisions for an Agreement by and between VESD and VETA include changes to the following articles:

The agreement and the memorandum of understanding, between Victor Elementary School District and Victor Elementary Teachers Association were created by district and VETA negotiators using the Interest Based Bargaining approach and a neutral facilitator. VETA held a ratification vote on April 23, 2013. By a majority vote, the agreement between district and VETA was approved by the bargaining unit members.

34.

ACT TO APPROVE THE CREATION OF A NEW FUND 77 AS THE CFD DEBT SERVICE FUND, NON-OBLIGATORY (Ms. Jauregui)

This request is to open Fund 77 for the CFD Debt Service Fund. Currently, all CFD financial activity is in Fund 52, which is a debt service fund. Our independent auditor has requested we change the fund type to a Fiduciary Fund. A Fiduciary Fund is used to report assets held in a trustee or agent capacity for others and therefore cannot be used to support the district's own programs.

Fund 77 would be used to record non-obligatory debt as it relates to debt issuance by the Community Facility Districts, which are payable from special taxes levied on property within the Community Facility Districts. As a Fiduciary Fund, this non-obligatory debt would no longer be represented as district debt, and as such will not appear on the district's financial statement.

The recommended action is to create Fund 77 CFD Debt Service Fund (non-obligatory).

35.

ACT TO APPROVE RESOLUTION 13-05, EARLY PRIMARY PROGRAM FOR 2013-14 SCHOOL YEAR (Ms. Clark)

This resolution complies with Education Code 8970 and will allow the district to extend the amount of instructional time to students in kindergarten through third grade in order to assist each student in meeting state standards. The resolution will help us implement common minimum days in the district by extending the school day for all kindergarten students so their school day will be the same length as the school day for 1st–6th graders. In addition, this resolution will allow schools to implement an extended day kinder program.

The recommended action is to approve Resolution 13-05 as presented.

M_______ S_______ V_______

 
 

36.

APPROVE RESOLUTION 13-06, AUTHORIZING TEMPORARY BORROWING BETWEEN FUNDS OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT (Ms. Jauregui)

Resolution #13-06 will allow payroll warrants to be drawn against the General Fund even if its cash balance is insufficient as long as cash balances in all funds are sufficient to cover the expense.

The recommended action is to approve Resolution #13-06 authorizing temporary borrowing between funds of the school district for the fiscal year 2013-2014.

37.

ACT TO APPROVE RENEWAL OF CITIZENS OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE MEMBER - JULIET CANTRELL (Mrs. Betts)

At their April 15, 2013, quarterly meeting, the Citizens Oversight Committee (C.O.C.) recommended Juliet Cantrell for a two-year renewal term on the committee. Her initial two-year term expired April, 2013. Ms. Cantrell will serve on the committee in the role of "a parent/guardian with a VESD-enrolled child, active in PTA."

The recommended action is to approve the renewal of two-year term for Citizens Oversight Committee for Juliet Cantrell.

M______ S______ V______

ACT TO APPROVE NEW MEMBER FOR THE CITIZENS OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE - RICHARD GOLDEN (Mrs. Betts)

If approved, his two-year term would commence with the next Citizens Oversight Committee meeting in July, 2013. Mr. Golden will fill a vacancy on the committee as a "taxpayer organization member."

The recommended action is to approve Mr. Richard Golden as a new Citizens Oversight Committee member as presented.

The following sites have decided to utilize Singapore Math materials: Brentwood, Challenger, Del Rey, Discovery (1st grade), Endeavour, Galileo, Green Tree East, Liberty, Lomitas, Mojave Vista, Park View, Puesta del Sol, Sixth Street Prep, Village, and West Palms.
