Summary: Senate Bill 374 requires that as a condition of receiving funding for specified categorical programs, the school district will ensure that each school in the district operating those categorical programs consolidates any plans that are required by those programs into a single plan to be known as the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).

MDUSD has used Document Tracking Service(DTS) since 2009 to assist with this process by providing an application to create, edit, update, print and track, and archive sites’ Single Plans for Student Achievement. Additionally, DTS converts the plans to PDF and translates plans for all Title I sites and other sites with 15% or more of the population that speak a language other than English as required by Ed Code and NCLB. The initial contract addressed only the services related to untranslated SPSAs. We are seeking approval to increase the contract with DTS as translation costs will cause the contract with DTS to exceed $25,000, thus requiring Board approval.
Funding: Tier 3 School and Library Improvement (Program 0918)
Fiscal Impact Independent contract to use Document Tracking Services proprietary web-based application in accordance with the licensing agreement - $12,750. Additional services to translate 14 schools' SPSAs into Spanish - $14,000.
