Communication Session

 
 

5.

Public Verbal Comments

This communication item is included on the agenda of each regular board meeting to provide an opportunity for citizens to make suggestions or identify concerns about matters affecting the district, or to suggest an item be scheduled for a future agenda. The board may not have complete information available to answer questions and may refer specific concerns to the staff for appropriate attention. The Board discusses personnel matters only in closed session. Should members of the public have a concern or complaint about District personnel, the Board requests that this be addressed through its complaint procedure; the form is available to the public with the agendas by the entrance to the board meeting room, rather than by comments during the opportunity for public comment. Should members of the public nevertheless discuss personnel matters during the opportunity for public comment, the Board will not respond to questions or comment on such matters. Speakers are cautioned that under California law, no person is immune from liability for making intentionally false or defamatory comments regarding any person simply because those comments are made at a public meeting.

Please limit comments to three minutes per individual. Total time for public input is limited to 45 minutes.

RECEIVE INFORMATION REGARDING RESOLUTION #18-11 TO DECLARE ADOPTION OF “UNIVERSAL MEAL SERVICE” A FISCAL HARDSHIP (Mrs. Betts)

On October 12, 2017, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law SB 138, School Meal Programs: Free and Reduced-price Meals (F/RP): Universal Meal Service (Chapter 724, Statutes of 2017).

SB 138 added EC Section 49564 which requires that on or before September 1, 2018, districts with very high poverty schools must operate a federal universal meal service in which all students would receive free meals. CDE has identified 11 VESD schools as very high poverty. As part of the implementation, districts will be unable to collect lunch applications, which account for approximately 25% of our free and reduced totals, resulting in the loss of nearly $5 million in Supplemental & Concentration (S&C) funds.

The governing board may adopt a resolution of fiscal hardship with demonstrated reasons it is unable to comply. The recommendation is to delay the implementation of the program to allow us time to put an effective process in place so that we don’t lose funding. Resolution #18-11 explains that due to the impact on S&C funds, it would a financial hardship to comply at this time and would give us up to 4 years in which to comply. The board must reconsider the resolution at least once every 4 years.

Resolution #18-11 will be included on two separate board agendas; first as information on June 6th and second as an action item on June 19th.
