1. PUBLIC HEARING CONCERNING MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION FOR THE PROPOSED EDGEMONT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL FACILITIES IMPROVEMENT PROJECT     
 

Pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”), the Moreno Valley Unified School District (“District”) has completed a Mitigated Negative Declaration (“MND”) for the Edgemont Elementary School Facilities Improvements project on the 10-acre site of the existing Edgemont Elementary School at 21790 Eucalyptus Avenue in the City of Moreno Valley. The MND and supporting Initial Study analyzed the environmental impacts of the proposed project. The proposed project consists of demolition and replacement of the existing school. The proposed project is designed to accommodate a master plan capacity of 800 students. New facility improvements would include a two-story classroom and administration building with 28 classrooms, a library, resource center, and administrative office space, a multi-purpose and food service building, hard courts and a playfield, two parking lots with a bus drop off and 68 total parking spaces, and student drop off lanes. The new school facilities would be accessed from Eucalyptus Avenue via two access points.

Copies of the MND and supporting Initial Study for the Edgemont Elementary School Facilities Improvements project are on file and were circulated to State and Local agencies, and available for public review at the District’s Facilities Department, Public Library and on the Facilities website. Public notices describing the availability of the CEQA document were posted at the Edgemont School Site, Main District Office, Facilities Department, Public Library, Facilities website. Public notices were also mailed to residents within five hundred (500) feet of the school site. Additionally, public notices of the availability of the document were advertised in the local newspapers. As mandated by state law, the public review period for the MND was 30 days, beginning on October 30, 2015 and ending on November 30, 2015. Comments received during the public review period will be considered by the Board of Education prior to any decision on the project.

The Initial Study was prepared to identify the potential environment effects from the construction of the project and operation of the new school facilities, and to evaluate the significance of these effects. Based on the findings in the Initial Study, the District determined that an MND was the appropriate level of environmental documentation for the proposed Edgemont Elementary School Facilities Improvements project. Mitigation measures identified in the Initial Study would reduce or eliminate the potentially significant environmental impacts described therein.

The Board of Education is requested to consider the Mitigated Negative Declaration and supporting Initial Study, comments received during the public review period, and the Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program (MMRP). The Board may consider approval of the project only after adoption of the MND and MMRP, and may direct District staff to file a Notice of Determination with the County Clerk and State Office of Planning and Research.

The Board President will ask for a motion to open the Public Hearing and ask if there are any public comments.

3. RESOLUTION NO. 2015-16-50 OF THE MORENO VALLEY UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT ADOPTING COMPATIBILITY, UNIFORMITY AND STANDARDIZATION OF SPECIFIC MATERIALS, PRODUCTS, OR SERVICES     
 

Timely completion of the District’s Bond, Emergency Repair Program, and preventative maintenance projects are extremely critical to the District. Therefore, it is important to establish standards so that any material, product, thing, or service currently in use by the District can be matched to avoid expending considerable District resources and funds designing and engineering systems that may not be compatible.

All District building exteriors are currently painted with Dunn Edwards paint. The District has established color, tint and sheen formulas with Dunn Edwards that is specific to our schools. It is critical that all paint used on District buildings matches perfectly for the purpose of repairs and graffiti cleanup.

The District currently uses Mitel equipment for phones; Bogen Communications for paging, clock and bell systems; Daktronic electronic components for scoreboards and marquees; and DMP (Digital Monitoring Products) for intrusion control panels. 

Establishing a District standard for these products simplifies training for employees on maintenance and repairs; reduces parts inventory, provides for consistency and familiarity of system operations for staff as they move from site to site. Only products tested and proven to be of the highest quality, proven product support and good performance are selected.

Staff has confirmed that there are multiple suppliers of the proposed District Standard products.

It was moved by _________ and seconded by _________ to approve Resolution No. 2015-16-50, as presented.

4. CONSIDERATION AND POSSIBLE ADOPTION OF RESOLUTION NO. 2015-16-51 KINDERGARTEN THROUGH COMMUNITY COLLEGE PUBLIC EDUCATION FACILITIES BOND ACT OF 2016     
 

It has been nearly 10 years since California last authorized a statewide school bond. California's successful partnership between local school districts and the state to fund school facilities is in danger as state school bond funds are drawn to zero, leaving a serious backlog of local projects in need of state matching funds.

Californians for Quality Schools is a coalition of local school districts, school builders and construction officials that joined together to qualify a $9 billion state school bond that will go before voters in November 2016.

If the school facilities bond initiative is passed by voters, the measure would provide bonding authority to fund upgrades to aging facilities and invest in community colleges.

Polling shows voter support for school facility funding has intensified over the past year, with 63% of likely voters stating they would pass a measure.

It is recommended that the Board adopt Resolution No. 2015-16-51 in support of a state bond measure as presented.

It was moved by _________ and seconded by _________ to approve Resolution No. 2015-16-51, as presented.
