Motion

APPROVAL OF RESOLUTION 19-20-06 - ACKNOWLEDGING FIVE CERTIFICATIONS REQUIRED TO SUBMIT MODERNIZATION AND NEW CONSTRUCTION FUNDING APPLICATIONS TO THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION.

Passed with a motion by Mr. David Ross and a second by Ms. Jill Tucker.
Vote:
Yes Mr. John Denault.
Yes Mr. Victor Lopez.
Yes Mr. Abdul Mohamed.
Yes Mr. David Ross.
Yes Ms. Jill Tucker.
Rationale:
The Office of Administrative Law approved emergency regulations on November 1, 2012 that impact how the Office of Public School Construction (OPSC) processes applications received after existing bond authority is no longer available for New Construction and Modernization applications. These regulations establish a State Allocation Board (SAB) acknowledged list for projects that are received by OPSC after bond authority is exhausted. The list is called the “Applications Received Beyond Bond Authority List." Applications placed on this list only undergo an intake review to ensure all of the required documents have been submitted, but are not to be fully processed by OPSC nor presented to SAB for approval.

All New Construction applications received on or after September 12, 2018 are subject to the new regulations and processing procedures as outlined below.  All Modernization applications received on or after February 28, 2019 are subject to the new regulations and processing procedures as outlined below.

A new construction application package received on or after September 12, 2018 and a modernization application package received on or after February 28, 2019 must include a school board resolution that includes several acknowledgements, as specified in regulation section 1859.95.1. The required school board resolution which includes the following certifications:

1.    The Board acknowledges that the remaining School Facility Program bond authority is currently exhausted for the funds being requested on this (these) application(s).

2.    The Board acknowledges that the State of California is not expected nor obligated to provide funding for the project(s) and the acceptance of the application(s) does not provide a guarantee of future State funding.

3.    The Board acknowledges that any potential future State bond measures for the School Facility Program may not provide funds for the application being submitted.

4.    The Board acknowledges that criteria (including, but not limited to, funding, qualifications, and eligibility) under a future State school facilities program may be substantially different than the current School Facility Program. The district’s Approved Application(s) may be returned.

5.    The Board acknowledges that they are electing to commence any pre- construction or construction activities at the district’s discretion and that the State is not responsible for any pre-construction or construction activities.

This year, the SAB increased the Level 1 Statutory School Fee 7.64% for a new residential development fee of $4.08 and a new commercial/industrial development fee of $0.66.  In 2018, the SAB approved a residential development fee of $3.79 and a commercial/industrial development fee of $0.61.
