Non-Agenda Public Comment: Several community members commented to the Board primarily about the lack of air conditioning at Lu Sutton, Rancho and Novato High, and the condition of the fields at San Marin.
HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:
2022 CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION PLAN FROM EDUCATION SERVICES: After months of extensive research, consulting with experts, and input from staff, Amie Carter presented this strategic plan design that clearly defines the best route for our organization to take in the years ahead. While not set in stone, this strategic plan will help guide the district to meet the challenges of the next three years. More information can be found at Item 12.a.
MEASURE G BOND SERIES B ISSUANCE: On February 14, 2017, the Board approved Resolution 24-2016/2017 authorizing the issuance of $51 million in Series A bonds. The Series A bonds closed on March 30, 2017. Series A was the first of four scheduled issuances for Measure G. The three subsequent issuances (Series B, C, and D) are currently projected for: fall of 2019 (Series B), 2021 or 2022 (Series C), and 2024 or 2025 (Series D). The Series B Issuance is currently scheduled to close on October 16, with bids received on October 2. The issuance is currently projected at $53 to $55 million. More information can be found at Item 12.b. and Item 13.e.
GRAND JURY REPORTS AND RESPONSES: The Board approved the District’s response to two Grand Jury Reports: “Vaping: An Under-the-Radar Epidemic” and “School Resource Officers Revisited.” In both responses, NUSD is meeting the Grand Jury’s recommendations. The responses can be found at Items 13.a and 13.b.
REPEAL OF BOARD POLICY FOR SAN MARIN LIGHTS AND PUBLIC ADDRESS SYSTEM: In January of 2019, the Superior Court in Marin ordered the District to recirculate limited portions of the EIR and include some additional information and clarification. On July 24, 2019, the Partially Revised Draft EIR was released for public comment. For there to be no conflict between Board Policy and the Partially Revised Draft EIR, the District must repeal BP, AR and E 7325. Once the CEQA process is complete, and if the project is approved, the Board may consider approving a BP, AR and E for the use of the San Marin Stadium Lights. This is Items 13.c.
