Notice of Public Hearing - Consideration Approvals of Facilities Needs Analysis & The Board of Trustees
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE MILPITAS UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT RELATING TO CONSIDERATION OF APPROVAL OF A SCHOOL FACILITIES NEEDS ANALYSIS AND CONSIDERATION OF ADOPTION OF ALTERNATIVE SCHOOL FACILITY FEES IN COMPLIANCE WITH GOVERNMENT CODE SECTIONS 65995.5, 65995.6, 65995.7 AND MAKING RELATED FINDINGS AND DETERMINATIONS
Please be advised that the Board of Trustees (“Board”) of the Milpitas Unified School District (“District”) at a Public Hearing to be held on Tuesday, November 13, 2018, will review and consider approval of the “FACILITIES NEEDS ANALYSIS FOR THE MILPITAS UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT” and consider adoption of a resolution entitled “RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE MILPITAS UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT RELATING TO CONSIDERATION OF APPROVAL OF A SCHOOL FACILITIES NEEDS ANALYSIS, CONSIDERATION OF ADOPTION OF ALTERNATIVE SCHOOL FACILITY FEES IN COMPLIANCE WITH GOVERNMENT CODE SECTION 65995.5, 65995.6, 65995.7 AND MAKING RELATED FINDINGS AND DETERMINATIONS.
Pursuant to Section 65995.5(b) of the Government Code, the District must conduct and adopt a School Facilities needs Analysis (“SFNA”) as one of the prerequisites to levying alternative school facility fees on new construction of residences within the District in excess of those established in amounts specified in Section 65995 of Government Code (“Alternative School Facility Fees”). The existing statutory school facility fees established by Section 65995 of the Government Code are presently in the amount of $3.79 per square foot of assessable space for residential construction and $0.61 per square foot of chargeable covered and enclosed space for commercial construction.
In compliance with Section 65995.6(a) of the Government Code, the SFNA of the District includes information regarding the projection of the number of unhoused elementary, middle, and high school pupils generated by various types of new residential units, in each category of pupils enrolled in the District. The projection of unhoused pupils is based on the historical generation rates on new residential units constructed during the previous five years that are of a similar type of unit to those anticipated to be constructed either in the District or the city or county in which the District is located, and relevant planning agency information, such as multi-phased development projects that may modify the historical figures. In accordance with Section 65995.6 of the Government Code, the SFNA also contains a calculation of existing school building capacity, calculated pursuant to Article 2 (commencing with Section 17071.10 of Chapter 12.5 of Part 10 of the Education Code).
The SFNA is on file and available for public review at the District’s offices located at 1331 East Calaveras Blvd., Milpitas, CA 95035 and is herein incorporated by reference. Any person may obtain a copy of the SFNA at the district office. To receive a copy of the SFNA by mail, please contact Naomi Agraz, at (408) 635-2600 ext. 6003 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Public Hearing of the District, to be held Tuesday, November 13, 2018, will begin following the Board meeting at 7:00PM, shortly thereafter, in the District’s Board Room, located at 1331 East Calaveras Blvd., Milpitas, CA 95035. These matters will be considered at such time as this agenda item is considered by the Board of the District.
Questions and/or comments should be directed to Naomi Agraz, at (408) 635-2600 ext. 6003 or email@example.com.
Adapted from milpitasbeat.com
Nearly 60 Milpitas High School (MHS) students completed a college-level geometry course recently as part of a summer accelerator math program offered through the San José – Evergreen Community College Extension at Milpitas.
The students in the summer accelerator program were among almost 200 MHS students to successfully complete at least one college course this summer at the extension, which is a unique collaboration between San José – Evergreen Community College District (SJECCD) and Milpitas Unified School District (MUSD).
MHS students had extraordinary success, with 98 percent of students passing their courses, all of which were transfer-level college courses taught by San José City College (SJCC) faculty. These included classes in communications, English, psychology, mathematics, history, and computer science, which are transferable to the University of California and California State University systems.
By completing college-level courses that transfer to colleges and universities, MHS students who participate in programs offered at the extension will graduate from high school having already earned college credits. Because the classes are offered free to high school students, they are potentially saving thousands of dollars toward the cost of a college degree while also positioning themselves to complete their educational goals at a faster pace.
This 98 percent success rate—nearly unheard of in higher education—is possible due to the cohort of highly motivated students taking the classes, outstanding faculty teaching the classes, and the unique nature of the partnership between SJECCD and MUSD, which includes a focused early alert system that allows academic counselors to identify students who may be in need of intervention early on and ensure they receive the support and tutoring necessary to be successful in the class.
High school students can take classes at the Milpitas extension two ways: dual or concurrent enrollment. The former are SJCC courses offered specifically to MHS students during the high school day while the latter are regular SJCC courses open to anyone and in which high school students can also enroll for free. Another unique aspect of the partnership is that textbooks, which can sometimes cost more than the price of tuition for community college courses, are free to all students for all classes taken at the extension, with books for dual enrollment courses provided to high school students by MUSD.
Built upon the visionary leadership of the SJECCD Board of Trustees and MUSD Board of Education, and the leaders of both institutions, the extension has served hundreds of students since opening its doors in spring 2017, and we have only begun to scratch the surface.
This fall’s offerings feature nearly two dozen courses from a wide range of disciplines, including computer programming, Spanish, economics, American Sign Language, and much more. An Administration of Justice course being offered as dual credit to MHS students is being taught by Milpitas Police Chief Armando Corpuz.
The extension is also home to TechNest, SJCC’s Coding Academy. TechNest offers instruction in the Python programming language through a robust curriculum that is presented in partnership with the Office of Digital Learning at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as well as a partnership with UC Berkeley for data science instruction.
The three-acre educational lab, which includes four general classrooms, two lecture halls, a science lab, collaborative work space, and a technology lab, as well as office space for enrollment and academic advising services, is located directly across the street from Milpitas High School on Escuela Parkway in Milpitas.
The community college extension at Milpitas is proving that this model of a symbiotic, co-located partnership is sustainable and beneficial not only to the students and institutions, but the entire community.

California public school students in kindergarten through 12th grade have new digital resources available to them courtesy of the California State Library. Why is this significant? California is one of the last states to offer these types of resources to every student. Until now, individual schools and districts paid for students to access quality digital resources appropriate for academic use.
What are these resources? They are commonly referred to as Databases.
"A library database is an indexed collection of magazine, journal, newspaper articles, abstracts, and other information, which has been checked for accuracy and reliability by publishers and then licensed for distribution in online/electronic format. Many of the sources included in the database come from known print sources that publishers sell to the databases.” (CSL - California’s K-12 Online Content Project http://bit.ly/2C5UOa1)
There are three major providers for students/staff to use:
Brittanica/Escolar is an online encyclopedia for students at all levels in English and Spanish.
ProQuest offers seven different databases targeted to different groups.
All of these resources are available on MUSD campuses without a password needed. Students/families accessing at home can login with a MUSD student email to an overview document at bit.ly/2nSBNhr to see passwords for Brittanica and Proquest access off campus. These passwords are unique to MUSD and cannot be posted publicly per the contracts with the providers. Teachers may post in Google classroom or other sites provided they are not accessible via a public website.
