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 students who have been assigned student numbers 278713, 412171, 412172 (for purposes of confidentiality, assigned numbers are being used) meet 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 students be accepted as option students 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.

9.2.1. Early Childhood Program Expansion Grant Application
Rationale: 

The Nebraska Department of Education is again offering funds to Early Childhood Programs in local communities. The Early Childhood Education Grant Program is intended to support the development of children in the birth to kindergarten age range through the provision of comprehensive center-based programs. In most cases the projects expand and/or combine existing pre-kindergarten programs funded through district, federal, or parent fees. Each project receives funding for up to one-half of the total operating budget of the project per year on a continuing basis, subject to availability of the funds. A public school or an educational service unit is the fiscal agent. Funded projects are required to operate in compliance with NDE Rule 11 Regulations for Early Childhood Education Grant Program. Rule 11 reflects research-based elements of quality early childhood education programs intended to produce strong outcomes for children.

Explanation
Lincoln Public Schools proposes to pilot two full-day, center-based early childhood classrooms in LPS elementary school buildings through this grant. Each classroom will serve 20 children, for a total of 40 children served. The program will ensure that each child enters a formal school setting with the same learning advantages as other children. Early childhood staff and partners will seek opportunities to promote the physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and language development of very young children and their families during these crucial early years.

These funds will serve three- and four-year-olds who qualify for participation in an inclusive environment. Services will be provided through a full-day (6 hours), five-day-a-week, center-based program, which greatly exceeds the minimum hour per week required by the Nebraska Department of Education. The staff will serve families using the program delivery model as is currently provided in existing school-based early childhood centers.

The program is based on research and best practices in the field of early childhood and family systems. By embracing the child and family in a secure, nurturing culturally appropriate environment, the child’s growth and development will flourish. Research demonstrates that the best approach to serve the families of these young children is through quality preschool services to assist with transitions to kindergarten. The program emphasizes the core elements of family involvement through home visitation with an emphasis on family literacy that supports education as a core family value.

Proposal
That the Board considers the submission of this Early Childhood Expansion grant application for two full-day classes in the amount of $200,000, with a required 100% match which will be provided through space and equipment that are already in place.  An additional amount ($25,000) of grant funds will be requested and used for start-up costs (no match required for start-up costs), dependent upon final award.

The grant application is due to the Nebraska Department of Education by March 3, 2017.

9.2.2. Resolution for Option Enrollment Students 2017-18
Rationale:  Nebraska students may attend a school other than the one in the district in which they reside under the option enrollment statutes.      

Explanation
The attached resolution would admit any K-12 option students who meet the statutory and legal conditions and whose application is received by August 4, 2017.  

The resolution specifies the circumstances under which late-filed applications would be accepted.       

Proposal
That the Board discuss the option resolution for the 2017-18 school year.

10.1. From Board Committees
10.1.1. Newly Annexed Property to the City of Lincoln
Rationale: 
The Board of Education assigns school attendance areas to property newly annexed to the City of Lincoln or newly platted.  This action establishes school attendance areas prior to the sale of residential lots, allowing purchasers to know which schools their children will attend.

Explanation
The City of Lincoln has annexed a parcel of land, which automatically brings this property into the district of Lincoln Public Schools.  This property needs to be assigned attendance centers so that potential purchasers of homes in this area will know which schools they will be attending:

Grandview Estates 1st Addition, Annexation Ordinance #20389, for 2016-17 school year:  Wysong Elementary School, Pound Middle School, and Southeast High School.

Proposal
That the Board approve the proposed attendance area assignments of the newly annexed property.

10.1.2. Chromebooks for 2017 Distribution
Rationale: 

The CLASS technology plan provides budget resources in the 2016-17 fiscal year for the purchase of enough Chromebooks to provide one for each student in the 2017-18 sixth grade class (3,058 devices) and one for each student at the four high schools (8,363 devices) where devices have not been deployed (East, Lincoln High, North Star, and Southwest).

In addition, it is proposed to purchase a Chromebook for each second-grade student (3,000 devices) by reallocating 2016-17 CLASS plan budget resources originally targeted to purchase approximately 1,800 tablets for K-2 classrooms.  The plan remains to deploy tablets in K-1 in the 2017-18 school year and the additional fiscal resources required to provide a Chromebook for each 2nd grade student will be offset by moving K-5 from a 3-year to a 4-year replacement schedule.

Twenty-six bids were received from twelve vendors in response to RFQ 8064 and the Dell 11” Chromebook was the lowest cost model that featured a standard 3-year warranty.  Moreover, the Dell model scored highest in the evaluation of features and performance achieving a value quotient 20 percent higher than the nearest alternative.  A complete tabulation of the cost and evaluation scoring is available from the Purchasing Department.

Explanation
A January 2017 purchase of Chromebooks for distribution to secondary students in fall of 2017 allows the district to save $8 per device ($66,904) and ensures all students are using the same device model.  An advantage of all students using the same model Chromebook is that as devices are retired from service, their parts can be used for repairs on those devices remaining in service saving additional funds that would otherwise be expended on parts.

The use of Chromebooks with 2nd grade students was piloted at Sheridan and Riley elementary schools.  The results from those pilots and feedback from elementary principals serving on a technology advisory committee suggest that providing a Chromebook device for each 2nd grade student has instructional and operational advantages over the four-tablet center-based model initially included in the CLASS plan.  

Implementation of Chromebooks in grade 2 during this school year will be designed to meet existing demands and the implementation plan will be based on the model successfully used in the mid-year implementation of Chromebooks in grades 3-5 last year.

It is recommended that the Board award a total of $2,711,148.00 to Sterling Computers (Dakota Dunes, South Dakota) to purchase 14,421 Dell 11” Chromebooks and $395,549.00 to Dell EMC Inc. (Round Rock, Texas) for device management licensing (Chrome Management) and  KACE asset management licenses including 3-year maintenance.

10.2.1. State 21st Century Community Learning Center Continuation 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 second continuation funding grant for the Belmont Elementary, Brownell Elementary, Prescott Elementary and Culler Middle CLC schools.  The identified schools have specific needs which are in line with the goals of the 21st Century grant process and have successfully achieved stated outcomes in the first continuation grant award.  Community partners that have been identified to serve as the CLC lead agency and to assist in the planning and service provision include:  Lincoln Parks & Recreation, Northeast Family Center, Family Service Lincoln and Malone Community Center.  These community partners and others are essential to the successful delivery of quality expanded learning opportunities for students.  The continuation grant will build on the success these sites have experienced over the past five years.  Successes have included consistently meeting the grant attendance objectives and performance data on NeSA indicates students in expanded learning (ELO) programs meet or exceed in reading and math at a higher percentage than non-attending ELO students.  Expanded learning opportunities will include homework/academic support, STEM, enrichment activities, recreation and leisure, character education and leadership development, and service learning as well as activities to support nutrition and healthy lifestyles.

Other CLC success includes the continued partnership between school and community-based organizations to improve alignment of activities to the school day curriculum, strengthening professional development, and sharing responsibility and accountability for program quality.  It is projected that approximately 921 students will be impacted by the CLC opportunities at these four sites.

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

That the Board of Education approve 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 $687,300.

The 100% match requirement is met through existing community based partners and site based support.
