RE: ENGLISH LANGUAGE ACQUISITION PROGRAM (ELAP)

RECOMMENDATION NO. A.4

It is recommended that the Board of Education approve the application of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District to the State Board of Education for the English Language Acquisition Program (ELAP).

The application to this program would provide $100.00 for each English Language Learner in grades four through eight to assist the District in our ongoing program in English Language Development for these students. The schools in the District that would receive this funding are:

*John Adams Middle School 286 students

*Edison Elementary 82 students

BACKGROUND AND RATIONALE

The California Department of Education (CDE) has announced the availiability of funds to local agencies (LEAs) to participate in the English Language Acquisition Program (ELAP), Education Code 400-410. The ELAP becomes effective Spring, 2002. These funds, which will be allocated annually, will greatly help in our continued efforts to improve our assessment tools for English learners and provide supplemental instructional support opportunities during intersessions, before and after school and summer school.

PLAN FOR USE OF FUNDS AND TIME LINE

The funds will be used to:
Conduct academic assessments of English learners to ensure appropriate placement of those pupils. Assessments shall include:


A)Initial assessment of English language learners to determine their English proficiency level.

(b) Ongoing assessment coducted at least annually to ensure accurate placement of English learners and to provide formative assessment information to refine the program. Assessments include, but are not limited to, the State standardized testing and reporting program (STAR), required by section 60604, unless the pupil is exempted by law, and the California English Language Development Test (CELDT), pursuant to Section 60811, when it is available.

The time line for implementation is dependent upon receiving the funding in the Spring 2002.

RE: ABOLISHMENT OF ONE OF TWO FOOD SERVICE OPERATION SUPERVISOR POSITIONS (ONE CURRENTLY VACANT)

RECOMMENDATION NO. A.15

It is recommended that the Board of Education approve the abolishment of one of two Food Services Operation Supervisor Positions.

Comments: Since the resignation of Les Angel, Food Service Operation Supervisor, on May 1, 2001, the supervisory duties of the Department have been split between the Director and the remaining Food Service Operation Supervisor. This system is working very well, allowing the Director to take advantage of some unique skills. The move has also streamlined communications, and has fostered a more efficient operation of the Department.

The abolishment of one of the two Food Service Operation Supervisor positions will provide salary and benefit savings of $61,000, of which a portion will be used to further assist the Department with its restructuring plans.

RE: ESTABLISHMENT OF ONE NUTRITION SPECIALIST POSITION

RECOMMENDATION NO. A.16

It is recommended that the Board of Education approve the establishment of one Nutrition Specialist position for the Food and Nutrition Services Department.

Comments: The growth, and demands of such growth, as well as future requirements of recently passed legislation (Senate Bill 19), call for the Food and Nutrition Services Department to add a Nutrition Specialist to the staff. Previously, we have contracted with consultants to provide nutritional analysis of menus, and to conduct nutrition education activities in and out of the classrooms.

The individual filling this position would be responsible for nutrition analysis of menus, preparation of production records, coordination of all nutrition education activities, coordination of Farmers' Market Salad Bar Program, and insuring compliance with all current and future nutrition requirements. This individual will also assume some of the Food Service Operation Supervisor's duties due to the abolishment of one position.

RE: APPROVAL OF BOARD POLICY 5132 - Dress and Grooming

DISCUSSION NO. D.1

It is recommended that the Board of Education adopt Board Policy 5132, Dress and Grooming. This policy is an updated version of the policy originally adopted by the Board of Education on September 10, 1991.

COMMENTS: It is recommended that the Board adopt the attached policy, BP 5132 - Dress and Grooming.

The attached and revised policy is an updated version of the policy originally adopted by the Board of Education in 1991. This revision will bring our policy language in-line with the model policy developed by the California School Boards Association (CSBA) and reflects updated legal references.

California Education Code 35183 authorizes the Board to approve a site-initiated plan that prohibits the school's students from wearing gang-related apparel. The definition of "gang-related apparel" must be limited to apparel that reasonably could be determined to threaten the health and safety of the school environment, and the Board approving the school plan must determine that the policy is necessary for the health and safety of students. Education Code 35294.1 specifies that for the purpose of establishing a schoolwide dress code, gang-related apparel shall not be considered a protected form of speech pursuant to Education Code 48950.

Education Code 35183 authorizes the Board to approve a site-initiated plan that requires a school's students to wear uniforms. The Board approving such a plan must determine that the policy is necessary for the health and safety of students.

Pursuant to Education Code 35183, if the Board approves a plan requiring uniforms, it must provide a method whereby parents/guardians may choose to have their children exempted from an adopted school uniform policy, and the Board's policy must state that suchstudents shall not be penalized academically, otherwise discriminated against or denied attendance to school.

Pursuant to Education Code 35183, a policy requiring uniforms may not be implemented without the availability of resources to assist economically disadvantaged students.

SB 310 (Ch. 575, Statutes of 2001) added Education Code 35183.5 to provide that students be allowed to wear hats and other sun-protective clothing outdoors. Each school site may adopt rules that specify the types of sun-protective clothing that students will be allowed to wear outdoors and specify the types of clothing and hats that may be "inappropriate." The attached administrative regulation specifically addresses the issue of students wearing hats on campus.

In terms of placement within the policy manual, if adopted this revision will simply replace the existing policy of the same number.

Students

Dress And Grooming

The Board of Education believes that appropriate dress and grooming contribute to a productive learning environment. The Board expects students to give proper attention to personal cleanliness and to wear clothes that are suitable for the school activities in which they participate. Students' clothing must not present a health or safety hazard or a distraction which would interfere with the educational process.

Students and parents/guardians shall be informed about dress and grooming standards at the beginning of the school year and whenever these standards are revised. A student who violates these standards shall be subject to appropriate disciplinary action.

A. Gang-Related Apparel

The principal, staff and parents/guardians at a school may establish a reasonable dress code that prohibits students from wearing gang-related apparel when there is evidence of a gang presence that disrupts or threatens to disrupt the school's activities. Such a dress code may be included as part of the school safety plan and must be presented to the Board for approval. The Board shall approve the plan upon determining that it is necessary to protect the health and safety of the school's students.

B. Uniforms

In order to promote student safety and discourage theft, peer rivalry and/or gang activity, the principal, staff and parents/guardians at a school may establish a reasonable dress code requiring students to wear uniforms. Such a dress code may be included as part of the school safety plan and must be presented to the Board for approval. The Board shall approve the plan upon determining that it is necessary to protect the health and safety of the school's students.

If a school's plan to require uniforms is adopted, the Superintendent or designee shall establish procedures whereby parents/guardians may choose to have their children exempted from the school uniform policy. Students shall not be penalized academically, otherwise discriminated against or denied attendance to school if their parents/guardians so decide. (Education Code 35183)

The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that resources are identified to assist economically disadvantaged students in obtaining uniforms.

Students

Dress and Grooming

In cooperation with teachers, students and parents/guardians, the principal or designee shall establish school rules governing student dress and grooming which are consistent with law, Governing Board policy and administrative regulations. These school dress codes shall be regularly reviewed.

Each school shall allow students to wear sun-protective clothing, including but not limited to hats, for outdoor use during the school day. (Education Code 35183.5)

If students elect to wear hats as a means of sun-protection, only school hats or those deemed appropriate through each school's policies may be worn. Such hats shall be made available to students at a nominal cost. In cases where circumstances beyond a students' control may prohibit him/her from purchasing a school hat, each school shall develop procedures to make a hat available.

In addition, the following guidelines shall apply to all regular school activities:

1. Shoes or sandals must be worn at all times.

2. Clothing, jewelry and personal items (backpacks, fanny packs, gym bags, water bottles etc.) shall be free of writing, pictures or any other insignia which are crude, vulgar, profane or sexually suggestive, which bear drug, alcohol or tobacco company advertising, promotions and likenesses, or which advocate racial, ethnic or religious prejudice.

3. Hats, caps and other head coverings shall not be worn indoors.

4. Clothes shall be sufficient to conceal undergarments at all times.

5. Hair shall be clean and neatly groomed. Hair may not be sprayed by any coloring that would drip when wet.

Coaches and teachers may impose more stringent dress requirements to accommodate the special needs of certain sports and/or classes.

No grade of a student participating in a physical education class shall be adversely affected if the student does not wear standardized physical education apparel because of circumstances beyond the student's control. (Education Code 49066)

The principal, staff, students and parent/guardians at each school may establish reasonable dress and grooming regulations for times when students are engaged in extracurricular or other special school activities.

SMMUSD Administrative Regulation 5132 (Continued)

Page 2 of 2

A. Gang-Related Apparel

At individual schools that have a dress code prohibiting gang-related apparel at school or school activities, the principal, staff and parents/guardians participating in the development of the school safety plan shall define "gang-related apparel" and shall limit this definition to apparel that reasonably could be determined to threaten the health and safety of the school environment if it were worn or displayed on a school campus. (Education Code 35294.1)

Because gang-related symbols are constantly changing, definitions of gang-related apparel may be reviewed at least once each semester and updated whenever related information is received.

B. Uniforms

In schools where a schoolwide uniform is required, the principal, staff and parents/guardians of the individual school shall jointly select the specific uniform to be worn. (Education Code 35183)

At least six months before a school uniform policy is implemented, the principal or designee shall notify parents/guardians of this policy. (Education Code 35183)

Parents/guardians shall also be informed of their right to have their child exempted.

The principal or designee shall also repeat this notification at the end of the school year so that parents/guardians are reminded before school clothes are likely to be purchased.

The Superintendent or designee shall establish criteria for determining student eligibility for financial assistance when purchasing uniforms.

Students who participate in a nationally recognized youth organization shall be allowed to wear organization uniforms on days when the organization has a scheduled meeting. (Education Code 35183)

RE: APPROVAL OF BOARD POLICY 6145 - Extracurricular and Co-curricular Activities

DISCUSSION NO. D.2

It is recommended that the Board of Education adopt Board Policy 6145, Extracurricular and Co-curricular Activities. This is an update of an existing policy (BP 6146), which was originally adopted on October 5, 1992.

COMMENTS: It is recommended that the Board adopt the attached policy, BP 5145 - Extracurricular and Co-curricular Activities.

The attached and updated policy follows the model provided by the California School Boards Association (CSBA) and reflects current law, including updated legal and management references.

In terms of placement within the policy manual, if adopted this revision will require some manual renumbering of existing policies to be in alignment with CSBA policy numbering. Specifically, current BPs 6145 and 6145.1 dealing with continuation high school, will be manually renumbered as "BP 6184 and 6184.1" and inserted into the policy manual accordingly. Current BP 6146 will be replaced by this updated and revised version, which is numbered BP 6145.

Extracurricular and Cocurricular Activities

The Board of Education recognizes that extracurricular and cocurricular activities enrich the educational and social development and experiences of students. The district shall encourage and support student participation in extracurricular and cocurricular activities without compromising the integrity and purpose of the educational program.

No extracurricular or cocurricular program or activity shall be provided or conducted separately and no district student's participation in extracurricular and cocurricular activities shall be required or refused based on the student's gender, sexual orientation, ethnic group identification, race, ancestry, national origin, religion, color, or mental or physical disability. Requirements for participation in extracurricular and cocurricular activities shall be limited to those that are essential to the success of the activity. (5 CCR 4925)

Any complaint regarding the district's extracurricular and cocurricular programs or activities shall be filed in accordance with BP/AR 1312.3 - Uniform Complaint Procedures.

No student shall be prohibited from participating in extracurricular and cocurricular activities related to the educational program because of inability to pay fees associated with the activity.

A. Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible to participate in extracurricular and cocurricular activities, students in grades 7 through 12 must demonstrate satisfactory educational progress in the previous grading period including but not limited to: (Education Code 35160.5)

1. Maintenance of a minimum of 2.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale

2. Maintenance of minimum progress toward meeting high school graduation requirements

The Superintendent or designee may grant ineligible students a probationary period of not more than one semester. Students granted probationary eligibility must meet the required standards by the end of the probationary period in order to remain eligible for participation.

The Superintendent or designee shall provide the necessary assistance to help ineligible students achieve the academic standards required by law.

The Superintendent or designee may revoke a student's eligibility for participation in extracurricular and cocurricular activities when the student's poor citizenship is serious enough to warrant loss of this privilege.
