8.3. Option Enrollment Student Application for 2016-17
Rationale: 

On February 23, 2016, the Board adopted a resolution to accept option students for the 2016-17 school year.  An application has been received from a student requesting that they be accepted as an option student for the 2016-17 school year.  Staff recommends that the student referred to in this agenda item be accepted for enrollment as they are in compliance with the Board resolution of February 23, 2016.      

Explanation
Staff examined the application of the student included in this proposal.  The student meets one of the criteria set forth by the Board in its resolution of February 23, 2016.  Staff recommends approval of this application.      

Proposal  
That the Board adopt the following resolution:  

WHEREAS, the student who has been assigned student number 273290 (for purposes of confidentiality, assigned numbers are being used) meets one or more of the criteria of the Board resolution of February 23, 2016, with regard to such option students;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the aforementioned student be accepted as an option student on the condition and with the express understanding that all programs, all classes and all buildings of assignment, except as otherwise required by law, shall at all times and from time to time during attendance at Lincoln Public Schools be determined solely by Lincoln Public Schools.

8.4. Enrollment of Expelled Student
Rationale: 

Lincoln Public Schools regulation 5460.1 and Nebraska state law provides that if a student has been expelled from any public or private school, and the student has not completed the terms or time period of the expulsion, the student shall not be permitted to enroll in this school district until the expulsion period from such other school has expired, unless the Lincoln Board of Education approves by a majority vote the enrollment of such student prior to expiration of the expulsion period.  Student number 232547 (for purposes of confidentiality, assigned numbers are being used) has filed the proper application and has requested enrollment.       

Explanation  
The Department of Student Services has reviewed the application and the background information on the student and is recommending that the application be approved and that the student be enrolled in the Lincoln Public Schools Expelled Student Program for the remainder of this school year, subject to such terms and conditions as imposed by the Director of Student Services and all program rules and regulations until the term or time period of the original underlying expulsion is completed.      

Proposal 
That the Board approves the application and all recommendations of the Department of Student Services.

9.1. From Board Committees
9.2. From the Superintendent
9.2.1. Nebraska Department of Education Innovation Grant
Rationale: 

The Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) Innovation Grant Program was created with the passage of Legislative Bill (LB) 519, effective August 30, 2015. This bill allowed for the program’s creation through a transfer from the State Lottery Operation Trust Fund and Nebraska Education Improvement Fund. The competitive grant program provides funding to Local Education Agencies to support the development, expansion, and investment in innovative best practices that improve: (1) education outcomes for early childhood, elementary, middle school or high school students; (2) transitions between any successive stages of education; or (3) transitions between education and the work force. Funded projects must have the potential to be both scalable and replicable in other Nebraska school districts. Rigorous independent evaluation is required. Projects that, based on summative progress reports in 2019, are recommended as a best practice or model for statewide replication and State support may be funded for validation and scale-up efforts at the end of the 30-month grant period.

Explanation
Lincoln Public Schools would like to propose a project called Planting the Seeds of Innovation in Middle School, which seeks to increase engagement and achievement among middle school students through a three-pronged strategy: (1) a schoolwide shift to design-based learning and an innovation mindset, (2) a transformation in design and function of learning environments, and (3) schoolwide professional development with innovative industry leaders in STEM and education fields. If awarded, the project will initially target Goodrich and Moore Middle Schools—among the oldest and newest of LPS middle schools—to pilot these strategies. This will be followed by a phasing in of the remaining 10 middle schools over the three-year period, being mindful of the need for equitable distribution of resources throughout the district.

Proposal
The Board approves the submission of an LPS application to the Nebraska Department of Education to support implementation of key innovative strategies meant to redesign middle schools. The grant application request will include approximately $2.0 million over a three-year period. Match is not required.

Application due date: December 14, 2016.

9.2.2. Woods Charitable Fund Breakthrough Initiative Grant
Rationale: 

Woods Charitable Fund is offering a new grant opportunity that will support promising and groundbreaking new programs, collaborations and/or organizational best practices in Lincoln.  The Breakthrough Initiative Grant (BIG) will be highly competitive, ranging from $150,000 to $500,000 per year for possible multi-year funding. Funded projects could address challenges or needs of broad relevance to Lincoln or could address a very significant challenge affecting a small but unique and vulnerable population in Lincoln. A proposed project could test a specific, innovative new response to an identified problem with a commitment to make the findings widely and openly accessible. Proposed projects must fit within Woods Charitable Fund’s traditional funding interest areas of Arts & Culture, Civic & Community, Education, and Human Services.

Explanation
Lincoln Public Schools would like to expand its partnership with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Department of Educational Psychology to increase utilization of a successful bullying intervention across the district. Implemented on a very small scale since 2005, due to lack of funding and trained personnel to carry out the intervention, UNL’s Targeted Bullying Intervention Program (T-BIP) has changed behaviors and decreased office referrals among approximately 200 students. This proposal would allow LPS to increase the use of T-BIP across the district over five years, by training additional UNL graduate students to work with identified students, concentrating first on middle schools and then expanding to elementary and high schools. National data suggests that middle school students are at greatest risk for involvement in bullying, and that perpetrators and victims actually share many risk factors, including depression, anxiety, and poor self-concept.

Proposal
That the Board considers the submission of an LPS application to Woods Charitable Fund to support districtwide implementation of a UNL-developed bullying intervention program. The grant application request will include an average of $380,000 per year for five years, totaling approximately $1.9 million, with no match requirement. The application due date is January 15, 2017.

9.2.3. State 21st Century Community Learning Center New Grant Application
Rationale: 

The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CLCs) federally-funded grant program provides grants to eligible schools for the purpose of creating or expanding Community Learning Centers.  The primary purpose of 21st Century funds is to provide students with academic enrichment opportunities designed to complement their regular academic program.  All CLC services are provided during non-school hours or periods when school is not in session.  The CLC programs and activities are designed to build on the capacity of community partners and neighborhood schools.  Each site is to have an academic focus to assist participating students in meeting state and local academic achievement standards.  Families of students served may also receive services in areas which support family literacy, health, other family support services, and childcare.

Explanation

This 21st Century CLC grant application is a new funding grant for Campbell Elementary School.  The identified school has specific needs which are in line with the goals of the 21st Century grant process.  Community partners that will serve as the CLC lead agency and before and after school provider to assist in planning and service provision are yet to be determined.  A request for lead agency partner (RFP) and before and after school provider will be conducted November 2016 through January 2017.  As a result of the RFP the selected community partner(s), along with others, will be essential to the successful delivery of quality after school opportunities for students.  The development of CLC activities at this school will build on the success of Lincoln’s existing 25 CLC schools.  This grant in partnership with United Way of Lincoln, will bring necessary resources and support to establish Campbell as a CLC school.  CLC program activities will be developed and enhanced to include homework / academic support, STEM, enrichment activities, recreation and leisure, character education, and service learning.  It is projected that approximately 100 students will be impacted by programs at this CLC school.

The following program goals will guide the program design and delivery:

          Goal 1: Improve student learning performance in one or more core academic areas.

          Goal 2: Increase social benefits and improve behavior.

          Goal 3: Increase family and community involvement in schools.

Proposal

The Board of Education approves the submission of this federally-funded grant application to the Nebraska Department of Education.  The total grant amount over a five year period is projected to be $352,176.

In years four and five, grant funds will step down (year four to 80%, year five to 60% of initial grant funding).  Community partnerships will contribute resources to meet the step down difference.

Rationale: 

On February 11, 2014, the legal voters of Lincoln Public Schools approved a proposition to issue bonds in a principal amount not to exceed one hundred fifty three million two hundred ninety five thousand dollars ($153,295,000) for the purpose of paying the costs of:

(1) constructing, furnishing, and equipping technology and security improvements to facilities of the district; (2) constructing, furnishing, and equipping a new elementary school and a new middle school in the southeast area of the district;
(3) constructing, furnishing, and equipping a career academy high school facility;

(5) acquiring sites for school facilities of the district.

Explanation
On April 16, 2014, $120,000,000 of bonds were issued.  The spend-down schedule indicates the majority of these funds will be expended in December, 2016.  The Finance Committee recommends the remaining $33,295,000 of the original authorization be issued.  Staff worked with the district’s financial advisor for this financing (Ameritas Investment Corp.), with its bond counsel (Gilmore & Bell), and with its general counsel (Perry, Guthery, Haase & Gessford) to prepare the attached draft resolution and to meet all other requirements necessary for the second issuance of bonds (“Series 2016”) authorized in the February 11, 2014, bond election.

Proposal
That the Board of Education approve the attached resolution, including the following parameters:

(A) The date of original issue of the Bonds shall not be later than February 15, 2017.
