The construction of an Early Childhood Center was approved by voters on May 7, 2019, as part of the 2019 Building, Infrastructure, and Equity Bond.  Administration recommends the Board of Education approve the Early Childhood Center Design.
11. BOND RESOLUTION-2020 SCHOOL BUILDING AND SITE BONDS
The Bond Resolution authorizes the School District’s Administration to proceed with the issuance of the second series of the $316 million of Bonds approved by the voters at the May 7, 2019, election. As planned the amount of the second series of Bonds to be issued will be an amount not-to-exceed $186,650,000. The Resolution sets forth the terms of the Bonds and authorizes all of the actions required by law in order to issue the Bonds. The Resolution delegates to the Superintendent the authority to negotiate and accept an offer to purchase the Bonds from the Underwriter. The President and Secretary are authorized to sign the Bonds, and the Superintendent is authorized to sign all of the other closing documents. It is anticipated that the Closing on the Bonds will occur in June 2020 and work on the Bond Projects will begin in July 2020.
12. RESOLUTION:  LINE OF CREDIT
Administration recommends the District pursue a line of credit to cover cash flow shortages in the School District’s general fund, not to exceed $5 million for the 2020-21 fiscal year. The District would pledge State Aid to repay the principal and interest of the Line of Credit.
13. SOCIAL STUDIES GRADES FOURTH AND FIFTH GRADE TEXTBOOK RECOMMENDATION
The Learning Services Department has been monitoring the fourth and fifth grade pilot of new social studies curricular materials during the 2019-2020 school year. New materials were considered because our current resources are not aligned with C3 Framework or the new Michigan Social Studies Standards (2019). Resources continue to be limited or outdated including instructional strategies, supplemental materials, and teaching practices, which are not representative of a culturally responsive curriculum. Current materials are not inclusive of any online access for students and teachers. A broad committee of fourth and fifth-grade teachers from across the District piloted several curricular resources and recommends the adoption of myWorld Interactive Social Studies K-5 ©2019 - Grade 4 and Grade 5 from Pearson, which met a number of criteria including alignment with the C3 Framework and new Michigan Social Studies standards, student engagement, opportunities for assessment, technology access and variety of supplemental resources. This process has been endorsed by Administration, and provided that this aligns with the 2020/2021 budget, a motion for approval of the textbook purchase will be presented at the June 4, 2020, board meeting.
14. HEAD START COST-OF-LIVING ADJUSTMENT (COLA) FUNDS
On December 20, 2019, Public Law 116-94, the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020, was passed by President Trump. All Head Start, Early Head Start, and EHS-CC Partnership grantees are eligible to receive COLA and quality improvement funds. The COLA Budget Narrative and Program Narrative for 2020 will increase Walled Lake Schools' Head Start Program funding for the period of January 1, 2020, through December 31, 2020, in the amount of $6,065, with Quality Improvement Funds in the amount of $12,000. The additional required 25 percent non-federal share amount is not awarded. This increase provides a 2 percent COLA for the Head Start Program. The funds will be used to support items needed in the classroom, for family service, and for recruitment.
15. RESOLUTION:  OAKLAND SCHOOLS BOARD OF EDUCATION ELECTION
Oakland School board members are elected by an electoral body composed of one person designated by the board of each constituent school district.  The Revised School Code prescribes that each constituent school district board must designate a representative to this electoral body by adopting a resolution.
16. RESOLUTION: OAKLAND INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL DISTRICT (OISD) BUDGET 
The Michigan School Code requires the ISD budget to be presented to the board of each of the constituent districts for review.  In addition, each constituent Board of Education, not later than June 1 of each year, shall review the proposed ISD budget and adopt a board resolution to support or disapprove the proposed budget. The Assistant Superintendent of Business Services has reviewed the proposed 2020-21 Oakland Intermediate School District’s proposed budget and based on the information presented and review of the materials provided, supports the budget.
