7.H. Suggested Future Agenda Items- Non Action Item
8.A. Governing Board
8.B. Superintendent
8.B.1) Legislative update
Description:  HB2066 (public school tax credit: testing) passed the Senate Finance Committee on a 5-0 vote. This bill allows extracurricular income tax credit monies to be used for standardized testing fees for college credit or readiness offered by a widely recognized and accepted educational testing organization or for the career and technical education industry certification assessment (defined as “an assessment for career and technical preparation programs for pupils”), preparation courses and materials for standardized testing. ASBA supports because as districts continue to set a higher standard of achievement, even during a time of huge budget cuts, giving districts flexibility in the use of tax credit monies for AP exams, CTE certification, etc. is welcome.

HB2262 (school district transportation; JTED students) passed, as amended, the House Appropriations Committee on a 13-0-1 vote. This bill would require a district to provide transportation to and from a JTED for children who reside within the district’s boundaries, do not attend a district-operated school and are enrolled in a program or course at the JTED campus. The amendment states that districts do not have to change bus routes and stops, students must comply with district conduct policies, and allows for fuel and transportation costs to be recouped.

SB1158 (s/e: elections; early voting dates) passed Senate COW. This bill decreases from 1 to 0.5% the amount of signatures for a JTED governing board nomination petition and adjusts early ballot mailing dates.

Description:  From Nate Sutherland-Cost of the options for the Board to

1)      Stay the course ($159/credit): $18,880 above standard tuition -> *I am not in favor of this option, since it will not adjust with tuition changes and will lead to a repeat of the current discussion
in a few years when the cast of players has changed*

2)      Regular CCC tuition plus $40 per credit (which averages
$158/credit this year but would follow tuition increases over time instead of staying the same): $18,440 above standard tuition based on 2017-18 enrollments as shown in attached spreadsheet

staff to provide specialized services:  $19,562 per year plus 2% annual escalation
