Board Agenda Items
Perkins Grant 2018-19 Application and CTE 2017-18 Program Evaluation: The Perkins Grant for 2018-19 requires that a Career and
Technical Education (CTE) program evaluation for school year 2017-18 be completed and approved by the board prior to submitting
the grant application. The Perkins grant is federally funded and provides partial funding for CTE. The district uses Perkins resources
to support career and technical student organizations, such as technology student associations, robotics, and DECA. Perkins is also
used to fund teacher professional development in high demand career areas. The CTE program evaluation for 2017-18 will be
presented for board approval at the November 20, 2018 regular board meeting. The evaluation document contains an overview of
the district CTE program, CTE program advisories, and a five-year growth plan for CTE.

Medic One Grant: The Everett Medic One Foundation has given a grant of $8,000 to Everett Public Schools to provide
cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training and education to district high school students during 2018-19. The district schedules
Everett Fire Department firefighters to provide the training to students during their off-duty hours. The grant is used to compensate
the firefighters. The board of directors will be asked to approve this grant in the consent agenda at its November 20 regular
meeting.

School Responses to Notifications of Student Criminal Offenses: This summer, the State Auditor's Office conducted a performance
audit of state schools (including Everett High School and Sequoia High School) to evaluate what happens to notifications from courts
and law enforcement agencies regarding student criminal offenses after schools receive them. State law requires that when school
principals receive criminal history information, they ensure it reaches every teacher of that student (RCW 13.04.155(2)). When
students transfer, schools are required to send this criminal history information to the student's new school (RCW 28A.225.330(2)).
Additionally, WAC 181-87-093 requires principals establish written guidelines to ensure the transfer of all records to comply with
RCW 28A.225.330. As a result of the audit, the State Auditor's Office recommended that districts adopt or revise current policies and
procedures for sharing student criminal information with teachers, subsequent schools, and to develop district-wide systems to share
this information as required. Revisions are being incorporated into Policy 3143, District Notification of Juvenile Offenders and Policy
3144 and Procedure 3144P, Release of Information Concerning Student Sexual and Kidnapping Offenders and have been reviewed by
legal counsel, and the Policy Review Council. Principals have also been asked to review the proposed revisions and provide feedback
prior to final cabinet review. First reading of the proposed revisions is tentatively scheduled at the December 4, 2018 regular board
meeting. The Seattle Times published an article regarding the audit.

Capital Bond Planning Committee: Resolution 1187, Formation, Instructions and Guiding Principles for a Capital Bond
Planning Committee, provides for the selection and appointment of members to the Capital Bond Planning Committee.
Appointment letters from the superintendent's office were issued November 8 informing applicants of their appointment
and welcoming them to the committee. The membership roster will be added to committee's web page next week. The
first committee meeting will be held on Monday November 19, 2018 to begin work to develop a recommendation to the
superintendent by June 15, 2019, describing the scope and size of a capital bond proposal to be placed before district
voters. Jim Dugan of Parametrix will facilitate the work of the committee.

English Learner Enrollment Update (Key Performance Outcome: 1.5.a)
The number of active English Learners (EL) in Everett Public Schools as of November 1, 2018 is 2,799. This is an increase of 142

gradual decline from a high of 41.33 percent in October 2013. If Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP)
preschool students are included in the October 31 count, the percentage of students qualifying for free or reduced-price meals

Elementary Boundaries
Prior to implementing new elementary attendance boundaries in September 2019, the facilities staff recommends two
minor boundary adjustments necessary to reduce travel time and simplify transportation routes. These changes are
shown on the attached maps with solid black lines within the red circles. The change on Map A will allow 19 homes along
120th Pl. SE east of 19th Ave SE (Bothell Everett Hwy) to remain in the Silver Lake ES boundary area (shown in purple)
instead of moving them to Penny Creek ES (brown), and affects 8 current students. This is a dead-end street that
connects to 19th Ave SE, and the other twenty houses on this street are already in the Silver Lake ES boundary area.
This keeps the neighborhood together with respect to elementary school attendance, and consolidates what would be two
bus stops into one. The change on Map B will move property just south of Thomas Lake east of 35th Ave SE from the
Forest View ES boundary area (brown) to the Silver Firs ES boundary area (yellow). There is currently only one house
and no students living in this area.
