Board Briefs for August 15, 2017

Regular Board Meeting ~ Tuesday, August 15, 2017

 

Welcome Back to the 2017-2018 School Year!

 

2017/18 State Enacted Budget Revision

The Board of Trustees received an update on the 2017/18 budget. The Governor signed the 2017/18 budget, passed by the legislature, that included one-time funds available for use at the discretion of the District. The funds are $147 per Average Daily Attendance "ADA" which equals approximately $480,000 to Burlingame School District. These are one-time funds only.

 

Grand Jury Report: "Should Tire-Derived Products be Used on Athletic Fields in San Mateo County?"

The Board of Trustees reviewed the Grand Jury Report and discussed a response. The report summarizes that citizens have expressed concern that children may be exposed to potentially toxic materials by using artificial turf (AT) fields surfaced with TDP, particularly crumb rubber. The District's response agrees with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, "studies to date have not shown an elevated health risk form playing on field with tire crumb rubber, but these studies have limitation and do not comprehensively elevate the concerns about health risks from exposure to tire crumb rubber." Since the District is currently replacing the turf fields at BIS and Franklin, we took into account the safety to humans and animals, suitability based upon the location's intended use and frequency of use as well as the cost of installation and lifecycle requirements. After collaborating with community users and experts on turf fields the District has chosen to go with an organic material. BSD will be using cork as the material for turf fields at BIS and Franklin sites.

 

Grand Jury Report: "How Have San Mateo County Public Schools Responded to the Epinephrine "Epi-pen" Auto-Injector Law SB 1266?"

The Board of Trustees reviewed the Grand Jury Report and discussed a response. The report is interested in determining how or whether the public schools throughout the County of San Mateo were complying with the requirements of SB 1266. The District's response identifies that the District has undergone training discussing the content and intent of SB 1266 and describing techniques for recognizing symptoms of anaphylaxis and emergency use of pens. The District had previously changed its policies and procedures to comply with SB 1266. Burlingame School District keeps pens in clearly labeled boxes in the school's main administrative office, has staff complete annual training, and has developed policies and procedures for the possible emergency use of pens at off-site or evening on-site school supervised events to accommodate students with known food or other allergies.
