achievements of the finalists for SCOE's 2015 Classified Employee of the Year Award
and congratulated Julie Evans for receiving the honor. He noted that March 21 was the
Super Quiz for the state Academic Decathlon and congratulated Los Angeles County's
Granada Hills Charter High School for coming in first statewide with slightly over 59,000
points and El Camino Real Charter High School, which came in second with nearly
58,400 points. He also congratulated Sacramento County's Bella Vista High School,
which came in 14th among the Division 2 schools; Folsom High School, which came in
18th in Division 2 schools; and Pleasant Grove High School, which came in 5th among
the Division 3 schools. He stated that the SCOE Wellness Fair on March 25 was a
terrific event. He shared that on March 26, he joined a number of school district board
15-30
members, city council members, and other officials for a tour of the union
apprenticeship schools for mechanical trades, including electricians, sheet metal
workers, and plumbers. He underscored that these schools are terrific examples of
cooperation and collaboration between business and labor. On April 8, he attended part
of the state Advisory Commission on Charter Schools (ACCS) meeting. The ACCS
heard the appeal of the Paramount Collegiate Academy charter petition, which SCOE’s
Board denied on February 17, and which had earlier been denied by the San Juan
Unified School District. The ACCS voted 5-4 to recommend that the State Board of
Education deny the charter. He stated that Sue Stickel and Tammy Sanchez
represented SCOE at the ACCS hearing, and he felt they did an excellent job explaining
the Board’s concerns with the petition. The CDE staff recommended denial of the
petition. He noted that the student performances at the state Poetry Out Loud finals,
held on March 15 and 16, were the highlight. The winner was Levi Lowe from Sonora
Union High School in Tuolumne County, and Falyn Lazarus from Nevada Union High
School (Nevada County) was runner-up. He added that the keynote speaker, Dana
Gioia, was also quite memorable.

IX.A.
Mr. Fong reported that he attended a presentation on a home visits program
through Sacramento City Unified School District and was very impressed. He wondered
if SCOE could do something similar for SCOE students. He shared that he had an
15-35
opportunity to speak at the Legislative Health Committee supporting vaccination of
children. He asked if there would be an opportunity for SCOE to pass a resolution in
support of or in opposition to Senator Richard Pan’s bill.
Mr. Geeting expressed his appreciation to SCOE staff for the extra work entailed by
holding the April 10 Board meeting at the Palmiter/Hickey campus. He noted that Sabre
Jackson, the Palmiter student representative, and Alyssia Furtado, the Elinor Hickey
student representative, were exceptional in their poise and the compelling nature of
their comments. On April 16, he participated in a meeting of the California County
Boards of Education (CCBE) Legislative Committee. He reviewed three of the bills that
were discussed: AB 787, by Assemblymember Roger Hernández, is sponsored by the
California Teachers Association and is intended to draw authorizing entities more
closely into the operation of the charter schools they authorize by requiring that the
authorizers appoint the members of the charters' governing boards from prepared lists
of candidates. The California School Boards Association (CSBA) did not take a position
on the bill, but CCBE chose to take an "oppose" position. The bill is contrary to longstanding advice provided at CSBA workshops that authorizers should maintain an arm's
length relationship with the charters they authorize, so as to remain objective regarding
the schools' operations and to minimize the authorizers' liability for errors that may be
made by the schools' governing boards and staff. CCBE joined CSBA in supporting AB
1391, authored by Assemblymember Jimmy Gomez, which would bring complaints
about failure to provide the minimum required physical education (PE) minutes under
the Uniform Complaint Procedure, rather than continue to allow complainants to
proceed directly to court. The bill responds to a 2010 appeals court ruling that found it
unclear whether there was an administrative remedy related to PE minutes. And, lastly,
Senator Pan's SB 277, which would eliminate the exemption from immunization
requirements for students based upon personal beliefs. CSBA took a "support" position
on the bill. However, the members of the CCBE Legislative Committee were sharply
divided, so no position is being taken on the bill at this time, given that it appears likely
that Senator Pan will need to amend the legislation substantively in order to keep it
moving through the legislative process. The next meeting of the CCBE Legislative
Committee is May 1, 2015. He said it was a pleasure to join Trustees Brown and Levy
at yesterday's Seal of Biliteracy ceremony at Rosemont High School. Countywide,
more than 800 students earned the Seal of Biliteracy this year in sixteen languages
other than English, from Arabic to Vietnamese. It was a wonderful event, and special
thanks to Jan Mayer and the keynote speaker, News 10 reporter Bianca Graulau. He
also reminded everyone that the National Safety Council has proclaimed April as
Distracted Driving Awareness Month.
Ms. Brown reported that the Policy Committee met this evening. The Committee has
reviewed the Graduation Requirements policy, and feel very strongly about making
certain that SCOE students graduate with the assurance that they are qualified. She
noted that the Seal of Biliteracy program demonstrates a cultural change in education,
and she commended the schools for making opportunities available to students.
Ms. Glover – no report.
Ms. Levy – no report.

VII.A.1.
lessons to help students transition smoothly from high school to post-secondary activities.
During instruction, his students are engaged in the learning process and on task. He is
creative and brings current events to life, often connecting them to historical events." He
offers resources and community connections to enable students to undertake internship
experiences, and he organizes industry/career tours for Palmiter's seniors. In addition to
his work in the classroom, Mr. Pappas works with middle school students as one of
Palmiter's Check In/Check Out Mentoring Program mentors. In 2014, he served as a
Sacramento History Day coach for two students, and for the last two years, he has been
both Student Council Advisor and coach of Palmiter's Academic Bowl team—winner of the
countywide competition both years. Mr. Papagiannopoulous also leads the Project
Wisdom character education program and plays a major role at the campus Culinary Arts
Café where he coaches students on their customer service skills. Concludes his
supervisor, "Nick is a team player and is always willing to help out. He genuinely cares
about the well-being of our students and their success, and he always has a positive
attitude and outlook." Mr. Papagiannopoulos has been employed by SCOE since August
2013.
SUPERINTENDENT'S RECOMMENDATION:

Board Meeting Date: 05/05/15
BACKGROUND:
Julie Evans has been selected as the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE)
Classified School Employee of the Year. Ms. Evans, Payroll Analyst, serves in SCOE's
Internal Payroll Department providing support to employees with their health and welfare
benefits.
Ms. Evans is considered the “go-to” person when employees experience issues with health,
dental, or vision coverage. Ms. Evans also handles all of SCOE’s benefits processing and
billing through My CalPERS and other providers. Her supervisor says, "Julie is the driving
force behind SCOE's annual Health and Wellness Fair. She is especially effective at finding
and engaging vendors to attend this event. Julie is a big part of its success."
Ms. Evans serves on SCOE's Employee Recognition Day Committee, arranging for health
and wellness vendors to participate and provide information to employees. She recently
expanded the number of vendor participants.
Ms. Evans assists in other areas of the Payroll Department when the need arises, as
evidenced last winter, when changes in SCOE employee contracts necessitated
considerable additional paperwork. "Ms. Evans went above and beyond to accommodate
the heavy workload," comments her supervisor, "and she has done so while maintaining the
positive attitude for which she is so well known by SCOE employees."
Ms. Evans, who has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Science from California State
University, Sacramento, has been employed by the Sacramento County Office of Education
since May 2001.
Her supervisor remarks that Ms. Evans is known for her customer service skills, making
herself available to talk with employees who have inquiries or concerns about benefits, and
“going the extra mile” to make sure they are satisfied. Among the employee comments
received regarding Ms. Evans' work are: “great attitude,” “very helpful,” “hard worker,”
“wonderful personality,” and "She always has a positive attitude and a ready smile for
everyone she encounters. Working with her is a pleasure!" Concludes her supervisor, "It is
fortunate that our employees’ first and last impressions are formed by this caring, capable,
and positive individual.”
VII.B.1.
In addition to being recognized as SCOE's Classified School Employee of the Year, Ms.
Evans has been honored as SCOE's Classified Employee of the Month twice—in April 2015
and July 2005.
Ms. Evans was honored with classified employees representing other Sacramento County
Office of Education programs at SCOE's Classified Employee of the Year Nominee
Reception on Thursday, March 19, 2015. She will be formally recognized at SCOE's 30th
Annual Employee Recognition Day taking place Thursday, August 20, 2015 from 8:30
a.m. to 11:45 a.m. at the Scottish Rite Masonic Center (6151 H Street, Sacramento).
SUPERINTENDENT'S RECOMMENDATION:
The Superintendent recommends that the Sacramento County Board of Education
approve commendation of Julie Evans as the Sacramento County Office of Education
Classified School Employee of the Year 2015 and that the Board present her with a
plaque commemorating this honor.

Board Meeting Date: 05/05/15
BACKGROUND:
During the recession, SCOE programs opted to retain their aging personal computers
beyond the normal five-year replacement schedule. Many of SCOE’s student computers
were purchased in 2005 and are now over nine years old and cannot be upgraded to
support the latest operating systems. With the transition to Common Core
and a new standards-based testing program, Court and Community Schools and Special
Education are in the process of replacing these computers with virtual computer
technology. Most of the items on this list are to surplus those aging computers. CNTS
recently replaced 80 desktop computers at El Centro with new virtual computers and the
target completion date for the El Centro project is June 2015.
Education Code sections 35160, 35160.2, 17545, and 17546 allow for disposal of
property no longer needed or that is determined not suitable for school use. The
equipment listed below has been identified to be in a condition considered unsuitable for
school use and of insufficient value to defray the costs of arranging a sale. It would be in
the Sacramento County Office of Education’s best interest to deem these items obsolete
and dispose of them.

collaboration with the Folsom Police Department, the Folsom Cordova Unified School District,

BACKGROUND:
California Day of the Teacher is a special recognition of the important role that teachers
play in the lives of students across the state.
Day of the Teacher is modeled after Dia del Maestro, a cherished Latin American
tradition that formally recognizes educators. Because teachers are held in the highest

Board Meeting Date: 05/05/15
BACKGROUND:
May Update
We are providing the May Board update, designed to provide information regarding progress
toward reaching established targets for the current academic year. This update includes
progress on improvement strategies related to action steps presented during the March 17,
2015 SCOE Board Study Session, Promising Practices Supporting Academic Achievement
in California Juvenile Court and Community Schools. Due to the design of the NWEA/MAP
assessment system, academic progress in English and Math will be reported only twice per
year (after each 90-day period).
Reporting Calendar Update
Our 2015-2016 updates on our Local Accountability System will be provided in:
September, 2015 (End of Year 2014-2015 Report)

Accountability System for Court and Community Schools
Quarterly Report
Accountability System for
Sacramento County Office of Education’s Court and Community Schools (CCS)
Center for Student Assessment and Program Accountability (C-SAPA)
May 2015
The accountability system focuses on continuous improvement for all court and community schools
operated by the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) by evaluating multiple measures. The
system sets up a methodology to continuously monitor programs.
Features of the Accountability System
•
Relies primarily on existing reporting mechanisms and testing programs in order to minimize the
data collection and reporting burden for schools;
•
Measures performance through multiple indicators that are valid and reliable, yet appropriate for
high-risk student populations;
•
Compares a school’s performance over time to itself rather than to other schools because of the
unique characteristics of the court and community schools;
•
Applies the same indicators to measure the progress of each Juvenile Court and Community
School, providing consistency and continuity for students who attend both types of schools.
Overall Design and Structure
The overall design and structure of the accountability system includes five indicators of school
performance – one learning readiness indicator, three academic achievement indicators, and one
educational transition indicator:
1. The Learning Readiness indicator will measure student attendance.
2. The Academic Achievement indicators will measure the academic progress a student makes in
the core content areas of reading and mathematics and evaluate the number of credits earned by
the student while enrolled in a court or community school.
3.
The Educational Transition indicators will measure successful educational
accomplishments.
Quarter totals for these indicators are cumulative from the beginning of the school year to show progress
toward the year-end goals.

SCOE staff has established a Student Success Plan (SSP) database for El Centro that allows all teachers to
view all enrolled students SSPs. Students living in the Youth Detention Facility often have to change
housing units and this almost always changes their classroom and teacher(s). In the past, faculty did not
have immediate access to a new student’s SSP.
