6:38 am
of other languages besides english there is a need to have more than one parent's liaison or family liaison to serve the families and that these parents liaisons speak both languages. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> and last one insure that the documents that go the interpretation and transaction office are expensiveable for all than >> page 2 the professional development as a teacher b cc went to different schools and observed el d - so we saw many
6:39 am
best practices that are done from the classroom and observed the classrooms were divided two two groups of teachers were pro-active with the curriculum and it is designed by them as well and students were engaged and fully participated as b cc recommendations we want to provide a cross the department training to build the capacity moopthd the staff and support the parents during enrollment and rental for example, our parents liaison and secretary and p pi i u and also when you provide literature please provide it in our target language and then there is a program during recess we're

6:41 am
families and then i'm not going to read all the bullet it is you on page 3 and a b cc recommendation i've read the first believability the second believability to list the schools for the students that needed orientation and lastly to promote the school towers for the el families you know we take pride in our schools especially, as we know the increase of el scores and then lastly provide a list of newcomers to the liaisons thank you. >> and then lastly we have sort of a conclusion other recommendations and concerns those came out of school site visits and the presentations at the b cc and the discussions we have after them the first thing the b cc is concerned count
6:42 am
lower clarification of spanish speaking students as compared to other ervin learners we ask you share the scores to close this achievement gap the b cc is concerned not enough families know or understood the allow plan that was very much show ton true we have two or three additional parents that came to the b cc meeting and some issues of confusion will allow plan came up and some families know that but most families the district don't know about the allow reclassification in general the b cc recommends that all school sites with the population host one workshop on effective supporting the tool in the tool kit but this presentation in your packet is the what i'll call it
6:43 am
breaks down absolutely everything particular all the questions that parents have and in using the same presentation across the schools that everyone is getting the same information and lastly we again continue to be concerned about the lack of awareness parents have around lack of reclassification and a process not something that happens the next year parents need to better understand to help their children we clarify for example, the south is taken early in the year after the summer the b cc recommend all city hall sites with b cc host workshops those workshops should i be assessable and meet the needs of el families in terms of scheduling and are interpretation additionally as the b cc we discussed the defendant lake recommendations and not only do we fully support all of them but

7:02 am
the school district i know you've spent hours at long meetings away from our families to present those recommendations so i will definitely review them alcohol and they're important as we develop the budget for the coming year thank you very much. >> commissioner wynns thank you to the members of the brother committees for dr. murase said it is important to us i want to family say that i'm really happy we finally got the rotation working i know that both delack and the council we are every year getting a report after school was out or at the end of the school year and after the planning for the following school year had took place so
7:03 am
the board working hard to make sure we have a schedule we will get those reports in a this way every year it took a while to get the system to work as you expect when our doing something new i appreciate the staff that worked with those committees and all the staff that worked with the board and the where had leadership for the superintendant for doing something that will be effective and get us the report as we should be getting thank you very much. >> commissioner vice president walton. >> i want to echo commissioner murase in manning both groups one of the hardest things for the students for language barriers not feeling supportive i have a question either group or both groups feel do you feel supported in our effort from the
7:04 am
district. >> we don't feel sponsored we're here to look for that support. >> thank you commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell. >> thank you i too wanted to step up my thank you to all of you the work is important and he has helps us to understand the work at the site i had a question with the reclassification i don't know if chris teen is around but i want to better understand the reclassification phase and why we're unable to do more and is that is an issue of progress for
7:05 am
us can you help me to understand the reclassified. >> we heard a lot of feedback from parents and actually members from the clarification it was really highly recommended we develop that workshop tool kit since then we've been introducing it we train the parents liaisons on the tool kit it goes to the reclassification and all of the critical assessments that are associated with reclassification as well so this is definitely on our radar not really happen overnight in developing the capacity for every school sites for all the parents to have the information we are open of ways for parents feedback and input just some strategies key strategies that makes a
7:06 am
difference and to make sure the parents understand there was a lot of suggestion there was a long term goals but a lot of creation around videos that are assessable and the el program guide is one of the tool in the toolbox but people are looking at multiplied strategies different ways to get that information out. >> okay. thank you and then he had a question for the delack in terms of the participation with the school councils and in insuring our councils are coming to the delacks and getting a better understanding the needs of students and how that gets incorporated to the school process get a sense from the members if this is happening or it feels like one of the steps for developing the budget for
7:07 am
each sites that delacks are brought both that conversation. >> i can only speak from my own experience i'm now a representative from d lake he say that is a hard process there's no recommendation of delack of the district this year because i've been working with the delack members last year we were involved and i think that is why it has been possible to make some process in terms of our recommendations being listening and hopefully met but i think that is - it is just the same on the information side needs to be educated parents need to be informed that is not
7:08 am
happening at schools they don't know how important to get involved in the process of the budget discussion and what the things we need and the services the learners and teachers base the teachers are needed the support and students by getting involvement that that we'll be able to know what had happened and what they need and the support the teachers and the students need that's not happening so i can tell you by my own experience. >> and do you find are there things you know that will work that we're not doing that would be helpful. >> just the same as they're recommending information needs to be available for the families and i think that from the district level and school level the administrative staff needs to insure the information is reliable available for families
7:09 am
and make them said right now for example the school where i'm recommending we don't have information for the supplemental funds so they don't know and understand it is exclusively to serve the students the el students so therefore they don't know they have that resources for the kids so they're not involved in the process. >> okay thank you i just add one more a couple of more things one of the things i've found over the years that is critically important is to keep the information that delacks need online they can understand over the years that the district has posted budget when i first
7:10 am
started in 1906 sorry i really date myself 2006 with the delack started with the budget were not posted online and now budgets are posted preliminary budget should be posted when the principals receive them information how to designate the supplemental entrants all that information should be available to delack elax have a so we need to find ways to be systematic working by the information they need and their understanding the process that is a little bit xhaktsd sometimes they can engage at the right time their recommends are appropriately wanted to influence the budget and influence new plans but we do have a rotating parents with - new parents and

7:45 am
expelled because the law requires that charter schools follow all the provision of the law that recommend to x public utilities commission's it is not allowed under the law. >> so i'll glad answer that question when it comes to underline we involve the family we have students with complex issues and work with the families to find the best solution most recently, we viewed the sfusd services to make sure our policies are aligned so we're familiar with the big 5 and we realized that we understand that we need to be aligned to those big 5 so we always involve the families and talk about different options and most of our students and
7:46 am
families decide to stay and sometimes the students and families decide to leave but we don't threaten them with expulsion so if there is a concern i'm happy to talk to you. >> when you say we explore options that's the question is the option you often for trouble leave the school or we'll discipline you. >> we have lots options including for them to be on a contract to basically give back to the community i've harmed. >> is one of the options ever leave the school or you'll be disciplined. >> no. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> i'm concerned because we've gotten people that said that's what happened you know full disclosure you'll not vote but this discipline
7:47 am
issue a big deal that has recently come up. >> i can also respond if it is okay i just add reiterate that families are brought into the process and deciding what make sense for that the students there's a lot of things we look at discipline and the history of intervention what has not work those decisions are not made within the room families are definitely part of conversation if a family was not or feel there was some sort of a threat we're happy to engage with that family and move forward. >> i appreciate you're saying that but i want to point out families if disciplinary actions is not something you do by choice i mean, i'm glad you do that that is a requirement under the law so it is you know good you're following the law that is basically, what you're telling
7:48 am
me some have said i think you're not foreperson the law people the school so - >> thank you students for couple of to the microphone i had the opportunity to visit the 11 and get a fortunately feel for the community and i really was very, very impressed with the project based learning approach and all the students were engaged i think you have talented teachers at the school i was impressed with the benchmark portfolio and it reminded me of my own dedication defense that the kids are mclaren valuable skills and finally the program does have a
7:49 am
lot of value for the young people that are learning the crazy i'll be supporting this charter school. >> first of all, thank you to the students for being encourages and speaking on behalf of the city hall tonight i had the opportunity to visit cat and i had an opportunity to speak with great students that definitely recommend themselves well i was hard for me when i visited the charles i know when you visit they'll put the best in front of you i'll do that as well but the issue i'll bring up and the fact that charter schools top spaces from typically schools and puts us in a binds we continue to grow our
7:50 am
student population continues to grow and make the decisions on do we place the traditional schools and having to expedite for resources 0 with the charter schools and again, this system will not be sustainable to be able to have more charter schools and have - continue to have the ability to support our traditional schools that will be become a bigger problem at some point we don't have the resources to sustain a charter school system and traditional school system no way for that that be possible and the issue of suspension rates and what's happening in terms of the suspension that is tarnishy within a district and how we work with the students and families understanding working with children everyday some of the most challenging 24/7 and
7:51 am
bloipd but understanding our students should feel and have the support they need to be successful even with the issues they bring in our students first frustrated and at the same time, we choose those can wes to provide the opportunities for them to drive and be successful she shouldn't feel threatened when they come to school and because of minor incidents they maybe thrown out of school or told to pick another school system personally i get excited when we get children from charter schools but she shouldn't feel forced out with that said, i do want to say i was impressed by the students that had the opportunity i spent time with i know they're learning and they're excited about their school experience
7:52 am
but this charter school system is not good for public schools and has to stop and change. >> commissioner norton. >> thank you so i want to say i as have liked cat i've spent time there and, of course, i'm impressed by the students and by the showing at all the meetings how people and the students feel about the school it is clearly working for a number of students i'm really worried about the discipline data that as surfaced i appreciate the addendum you gave us and you made candidates i appreciate how you'll reduce the suspension rate i want to ask the staff i'll watch closely i'll vote in support of chart
7:53 am
but ask the staff to report back to us next year the commitment you're going to cut our suspension rate in half in the next academic year want a report back on that monitor that closely thank you. >> excuse me for arriving late thank you president haney so i had an opportunity to go to katie liked everyone every single everything that is engaging all the students were engaged in the instruction on pathway you know i asked about the suspensions and i appreciate that you're very forthcoming saying yes there are some things we want to work on that is a positive i
7:54 am
think i think everything he saw i really liked loved puc to the students and walked into a lot of classrooms i like the classrooms and yeah, he want to say thank you for the time you took to show me around the schools and introducing me to sf some of your students. >> (clapping.) commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell. >> all right. thank you i've the parts supported katie will be supporting you tonight again but i have some issues as my colleagues do around the sprungs rate is concerning and actually a question my question what has typically - is there a theme that is happening on the suspensions last year what are the top 3 types of suspensions you've been dealing with and you
7:55 am
know i'm confused that bumgdz up so quickly and if you could we are. >> so i want to speak to that her first year at cat she was a teacher previously one of the reasons we hiring ms. wynns because she as a teacher has lead a lot of student groups around exhibit and culture xez competence how to focus on restorative justice i want to say not a reflection on ms. wynns she's making a great, great difference i think that the past we had a policy that now we're are we looking at and not using that is around the track record of
7:56 am
students and how many reversals they've gotten it leads to a suspension we're not using that that will considers a lot of the suspensions. >> but what are the kinds of suspensions what is causing - what are the students doing to create you know a spike in suspensions. >> i think that is if fluctuates a lot of gun recommended suspensions this year is different alterations we student conflicts one of the things transparent we're trying to work on we don't a lot of restorative practices it is entering personal so our support council students i've pushed in hard circles we try to really build relationships and a restore discipline the next step
7:57 am
for cat bringing the teachers and advisors likely at u.s. d for the intervention so when we met with john a few months ago we remember existed to talk about that process and systemize the work on an individual basis. >> i appreciated that comment by the way, part of the challenge we often have between charters and our more traditional schools no shared learning he appreciate over learning from what is happening in some of the more traditional schools and our staff is helping you so the comment i want to be able to say all the appreciation for all the students great to hear our stories and the challenges you've gone through and i really wanted to kind of
7:58 am
push on the suspension piece when you're in a charter situation you have to come to us every 5 years to renew the chart so really critical things we look at we not a very - we're not a large charter supported school district we're unique in that from other districts the state we have high is it so for charter schools as students you have to recognize that your reflection is how oftentimes we'll take all that into consideration when you have board members that go to cu and we hear the stories how you made connections with our teachers are going on to college or have
7:59 am
so many options to choose from those are the things as a school board member i consider your is it so i want to take the moment to remind you as students the work you do and cut down on suspensions and recognizing your job to be in school and performing well contemplating so you can go on to to the next level our responsibility and that we keep an eye on and that determines of the future of cat going forward and want to appreciate veronica who has her kid with all of the legacy pieces that gone with that the supervise volunteer kids and kids and kids have gone you continue to do that to be there those make a difference that makes a different our building the community so thank you for
8:00 am
coming out tonight and for the young people came out to speak about our school i wanted to appreciate that. >> (clapping). >> yes. i wanted to add one thing that that vision schools in a history of council students out of the school i want to make sure that we have a commitment also, if envision that practices that you're changing that model of students we're not council students out of the school your school is actually for the benefit for the many students thank you. >> i also want to echo the gratitude to all the students and parents would came out and
8:01 am
spoke that was powerful testimony it to hear our stories and as always we're incredible proud and consider you san francisco unified school district part of our school districts and to hear over successes and feeling there is angeles environment you thrive is something that makes us proud that your students the city you feel that you have a future in college and beyond so we want to thank you for that i think there is a couple of points and questions i have you know the point will stungsz suspension is an important one and people are saying forgive us it is not just the number it is what that tells us what is happening the school and to hear that some of the suspensions are could by fight and sort of different types excavations and
8:02 am
referral without the supervision this is a sense of what is happening and whether it is reflective of values we have the school district around being the student center and creating ms. wynns in a pro-active way a culture where those things are not happening and where students feel safe and supported and strong connections with each other and the cults he appreciated in one of the points i was going to bring up how you think about creating that culture in a more pro-active way so those things are not happen to begin with a level of trust and support and that you know reflected in the comment there is not a culture some students are pushed away or out some of the hearsay
8:03 am
is about compound with the suspension is there something there around picking and choosing who defeats to be supported at cat that is not what you want to see and not we want to see one piece the last sorts of data point around the suspension that is helpful to me is whether you have data from the fall or around suspension numbers and whether you've begun to see a drop over time this year already under our leadership we're looking at the numbers from last year and again, this is something we struggle with and have a lot of sprungz under district schools we're you know committed to that and seeing that year to year a huge drop i understand but i want to better understand the successes of the things your
8:04 am
implementing. >> we don't have the schizophrenic numbers but looking at it is closely a significant drop this year it started with ms. win was the principal she and her staff planned an overnight trip to berkley so this focusing on positive college culture there's been a lot of communities meetings around pride and celebrations so all of those things helped and a significant drop we're happy to bring back reports monopolizing like scomploern q's requested and share with the board. >> to add one of the things we look at as the staff data referrals when you refer a student out they're leading to other things we're critical and thoughtful around the data and why we're writing referral and better intervention so our
8:05 am
suspension numbers are going down in terms of the student population positive recognize so celebration of academic success and exhibiting score values and shifting to where the focus is around celebration and pride and not a negative culture the combination of that student work and the priorities with the adults. >> i also wanted to say we recognize as an area we are commitment to taking action to make sure that less students are suspended and wear reducing those recreates. >> i'll appreciate the regular update to the board the one question he was going to raise potentially that is hopefully, some positive success to report i share commissioner vice president walton concerns as it
8:06 am
relates to the charts and space and facilities ando so i wonder if you could speak to how the shared space with june gordon and i feel like potentially that is a positive experience for both the school communities in any conversations with june gordon they have expressed that i've not heard in general i don't want to speak for them but strong concerns sometimes we're heard the other co-locations i wonder if you can speak to that certainly a very serious question for us how we make sure when there's a co-location the district school is a support and collaboration. >> we're proud to share the principal a matt as twins and his in coming ninth grader will be attended the other son goes to balboa park and one wanted a
8:07 am
big school and the other a school based learn we have a stronger relationship with june gordon and do professional development the kids go on college trips together we use each other's resources a very, very positive relationship we learn from each other also. >> i just echo that being my first year i think with the bell schedule and the way we cooperate that spaced a wonderful relationship and very supportive. >> mr. totiano. >> yes. we do want to thank all the students that came out as well as everyone that spoke today this is a big thing presented for you guys i do believe that ever student
8:08 am
did this the city throughout the world does have the potential to be successful, however, that is up to you to put yourselves to the plate i'll be supportive of this resolution i want to say i like it (laughter) i am happy to support this i'm so sorry good job to everyone. >> all right. roll call vote please. thank you mr. totiano ms. fewer commissioner cohen's dr. murase ms. norton mr. walton ms. wynns no mr. haney this is a of i's >> thank you so much thank you, thank you

such amendments may occur so commissioners before you updated materials for a second reading two packets tonight one is the expenditure plan that has the blue fonts you'll be voting on to approve that is the full native narrative and full budget of plan for next year the second document is what i recommend you combine with the superintendents supporting materials an orange font and it contains it included a summary of information that has been updated for second reading just to you're aware the beginning the documents includes if pages 2 to 7 staff information provided in response to many of the comments or questions by commissioners at the committee as a whole megan the 15 ever mark last week so that is priority as additional information and on page 8 is a summary of
8:23 am
some good news we received confirm from the controller's office we can submit a budgeted with an increase allocation and the amount of increase is the first reading budget we received reviewed is $87,000 for the whole allocation for sfusd, of course, that is split in half dedicated to the slam program 4 willed and 35 thousands and the other spent to on the programs the following pages contain a summary of changes since last week and those changes a highlighted in yellow the 3 housing unit $17 million and last week, we rectified the n
8:24 am
reviewed the allocation for the sports libraries to music use to absorb the salaries and benefits that we discussed last year, we've been relying on the chair over funds and additionally approximately for supplies and materials and purchase equipment for the expansion of the girl's sports also a one .0 middle school arts teach has been added in order to maintain the course class sections awhile the multiplied e multi lingual packet are the middle school other general new allocations first to support the
8:25 am
pier resources program 90 thousand for 8 ftes to support martin luther king exist programs to continue at the same level of services they enjoy this year and to expand to every middle school had been a peer resources this bring the total next year to for peer resources programs 6 middle schools and 8 high schools the schools with listed on page 10 additionally the source report that s o ar supports the programs added to the budgets for the first time will allocate $345,000 and that increase will support the current cohort of elementary schools that are receiving the support to expand two additional 6 middle schools
8:26 am
to priority supports for the general population in order to maintain a climate site and this provides additional 5 ftes for the 6 middle schools and superintendant truest is here so the changes since the first reading i'm going to turn it over to president haney thank you. >> thank you mrs. fleming and commissioner mendosa-mcdonnell i have a clarifying we think page 15 there was an additional 44 thousand or $45,000 provided to athletic equipment and repairs and i wanted to just wanted to understand what the facilities
8:27 am
pieces was, you know, the past we moved the facilities monies out of athletics and put it back into the facilities department if does that make sense that the athletic department was dealing with appliances and repairs and facilities so what's the other $035,000 dollars going towards specifically. >> those are funds dedicated to ongoing basic maintenance and repairs not facilities construction projects so, yeah this is basic repairs and appliances it is not dedicated to major projects. >> can you give me an example of what a repair facility is. >> so we recently had a mat overhead hauled
8:28 am
hello mr. truett i'm sure kevin truett don't give me a hard time i was going to be professional you started me on the road so (laughter) they all enjoyed that okay. so one of the works the matt over hauled we had to replace and repair matt's i know that displacing had to dig a general wear and tear on the theoretically equipment on the other hand, and facilities for those repairs that took place on an ongoing basis generally, the schools dig into their own budget this provides the direct schools with a cushion the equipment repairs in need the weight rooms go through a lot of repairs high school kids are
8:29 am
hard on stuff. >> that's the basic maintenance and repairs to facilities if it is not what it is let's not put it in there if it is repairs to equipment i understand i want to be clear who is - >> some of the facilities are considered a scoreboard which facility it is the equipment it is a facility charge the backboard of the facilities court those things are countered facilities a type of building equipment not moveable equipment. >> can we note it somewhere i just want those dollars used for facilities that's not the appropriate place a but understand if it is the category of all under i want it to say,
8:30 am
i.e., basketball or backboards so it is clear. >> i'll prepare a list you've been clear so we actually that's why i stood up here he had a sit-down with commissioner collins we spoke about this. >> thank you. >> absolutely (laughter) oh, stop it. >> commissioner fewer thank you vice president i'm thrilled the resources is getting an additional $90,000 to expand to another millionaire moifld it is fab is academy support one and 14 thousand so mr. truett is that enough
8:31 am
because we had a cow in that and all those ideas and so maybe you can respond i - i'm sorry but one and 14 thousand is enough for one fte if even. >> the main thing for the personnel we as we implement and asking yes you'll have a timeline of when the academy will be implemented perk up there by the end of may so you'll have it for sure so you raised a good point here's the thing about the peace funds a level of specific outlet if you need this for materials or conspiracy what exactly do you need those those are the types of answers we don't need we really need we need the salesmen
8:32 am
let's ask for the full amount of staff as a materials extra hours we know facilities charges and food and events stuff when we have to those meetings we'll use to the funding and get a better sensed we be able to put together a budget the problem because we've not done it putting a budget with the specifications that people need is not possible the one thing we know we need it staff okay. >> i was wondering one question is that reviewed by the cat and the cat given approval the second reading version has not been reviewed it is finalized today and yesterday we received the confirmation of the allocation, however, we have the two co-chairs presents. >> i'd like to hear from the
8:33 am
co-chair of the additional funds this was to the included in the original execution around the budget. >> thank you landmarking it over the past couple of hours this was given to me today - oh, thank you so much and sorry about that since i received those with only a couple of hours it falls within the preserves of what peace cat has established following the trends and guidelines to capture over the work on peace cca and also i've seen especially at galileo and other high schools they've sewer planned a personnel fund for peace cca money and for the increases in the athletics increases i find that credible important because now more the pots for the schools to be able
8:34 am
to take for their repairs and maintenance for the repairs to equipment it is very important other increases such to the pier resources and middle schools i know at any schools i've visited peer resource has a direct co-restriction of acceptance at their school and see one more school site to have an opportunity at it site it captures the rec services as well. >> wow, i think that you're here a snapshot you want to actually play on our website gnaws that's great. >> (laughter). thank you. good evening commissioners superintendent as co-chair my co-chair
8:35 am
mentioned that i think slufl with the new budget locations is in aligned with keeping the resources and reaching the students first and foremost our peace cca spoke of the reours and particularly looking how to further strengthen the programs at middle schools and this fund reaching the specific sites >> thank you co-chair. >> commissioner norton. >> so my question i'm really pleased to see the additional resources in story this is a great i see that positively but i'm - i kind of want to understand how we prioritize
8:36 am
what investments we're make with new money i mean it is great we've got a lot more money than we thought 8 hundred odd thousands but it has been applied to things we didn't identify at cow and so while again, it is positive and i support the investment i want to understand the process of how we prioritize and define those are the things to invest in not a lot of input from the board of cat. >> so commissioner i'll take the first stab and if mr. fleming or deputy city attorney there is an ongoing dialogue with the board and our communities around district priority work that has been captured the el cap and captured the resolutions the board has supported the environment around
8:37 am
restoring the compliefk cultivate it is supporting the capacity and the direction to the lifetime vision zero we actually have a list of strategy work strains the board as articulated not only during the community members of the committee but an ongoing conversation of the direction of the district we regularly touchback to the list of priority work strands and the prelims of the work to create capacity and build capitalized in the district we also are cognizant of the feedback we've received from the board not only the committee as a whole but the budget committee and the exciting meetings curriculum meeting so what we try to continue to do as staff weave a narrative around the priorities that the board identified and we have heard from the board and
8:38 am
from our communities quite frankly and continue moving the pride work forward quite frankly i think that as we get a few more peeps the coffers it really is for us as staff to bring the recommends to the board bans those previously identified priority stance those input from the various committees that voices the board as well i wouldn't see a scientific prosper say but i will say an eir active process that is very much ground on the input of community, the various siding and most definitely on what the board has articulated in terms of direction of the district. >> okay. well, i appreciate that i want to drawing your attention i mean, i mean that is the last hoivent of the priorities we've talked about in
8:39 am
budget committee and i am expressing a little bit of concern here not because i don't think your investing the wrongs things but certainly is under the list ever supportive schools i want to express some concerns a number of provided we've spent a lot of the time if budget committee talking about the new monies i don't remember hearing from staff that was the priority and again, i'm not criticizing but it feels like a big church of money without any discussion about how to spend it by the board. >> so again totally finds that that's why we bring the elements to the board and we can justifies that in our current experience priorities will shift and right now that is an area that needs port so we have a responsibility to prioritize
8:40 am
that spending based on the need that is maneuvered in the schools as we speak we're happy to describe a little bit more why that happens but this really is strategize aligned with the school seats and educators it is not going to go through the vetting process but that's why you hire us to bring the feedback and recommendations to you. >> i have one other question specifically which schools elementary schools and which middle schools will be receiving the support. >> sure as mr. truett elaborates to builds on the superintendents comment under the realm of safe and supportive one of the areas from the school communities clearly to continue focusing on a strong
8:41 am
core academic and core program with the tier two support particularly in schools that are actively working towards a universal role we want to maintain some of the support that were put in place and maintain those not on and the elementary but support the middle schools as well. >> commissioner vice president walton. >> hey. >> yep. >> the elementary schools are tenderloin feinstein and flint and provider and dead man and lick and however off i'm sorry you're writing them i'm sorry so elementary tenderloin e r taylor and feinstein and
8:42 am
flipt and francisco and gunman and lick, hover, and to be determined. >> as yet undetermined okay one of the things i want to say perhaps at this time you know right now the school sites are going to the budget process okay and their determining what they can actually afford to fund themselves last year, i partnered with dr. blanco and said we need to at some of the schools the tier one supports are not strong my concerns some of the schools when our tier 3 or your high needs students are exhibiting the niece and your tier one is not in place there is fingerpointing one program and kids with unfairly targeted
8:43 am
for creating some disharmony it is the whole tier one the school needs to be strong we're not blaming one classroom so my sense of urgency with dr. blanco do so let's make sure we are committed to showering up the tier one and elementary for this year and have a chunk of money to move to memorial day we can't do all the programs and have to develop a program with the board certified and so built a program of development and shore up but with the emergency room and the shore elementary said what about us this year we're moving to the middle the plan is move to the million dollars and the elementary school is wait, wait, wait don't go yet in their turning in their
8:44 am
site budgets and asking for support that's where the volume way turned up as this time right now so when you say we didn't hear the plan to move the support to middle and the elementary school and wait a second we can't use this yet this communication to both the deputies was what rachet up and put me in a place wait a second what shall we do they said oh, let's do this bans volumes. >> to make sure i understood it is really tier two support moving into tier 12 support for the elementary and the middle school. >> it is a combination of factors some of the schools are solidify phil ginsberg their coerce we want to make those our
8:45 am
school environments as welcoming as you know, making sure the to and from and learning is meeting the diversity and helping the educators but behavorial for some of the students in the programs. >> superintendant. >> sorry president haney if i can make one comment to address scomploernz reference to the chart we appreciate our paying attention to the chart. >> yes. we love that and that's okay for the rest of the budget process but in light of the last couple of comments that were made i also want to make another connection to. >> couple of items on the chart in case it was a little bit obscured we mentioned the safe and charter schools we see a strong nexus between safer
8:46 am
schools and as superintendent truett mentioned a nucleus between the school sites budget as we've said they're going through the planning process and the budgets are due friday the first two items direct school locations and the process for for is resources are not f t 19tare part of information that the support they ask rile on as they develop their plans in your mind we saw the connection to the priorities the context of site planning that was clear we understand that the timing has been challenging because literally mr. fleming and i were checking in hourly and did we get the official word from the controller's office have we gotten it have we gotten it
8:47 am
we're uncertain it will come in time for the second reading we read we regret the timing didn't leave the ideal amount of time to clarify all this we wanted to reinforce that we do think this is the clerk will take the roll connected with the multiple of the priorities on that chart thank you. >> commissioner vice president walton. >> thank you president haney just a few things first, i think that one that is a testament as to what happens when you practice positive thinking (laughter). >> and that's why we are not enjoying accepting the words i can't when you work hard and $80,000 falls out of the sky i think that is relevant in terms of was there as big chunk
8:48 am
of people money and will not think of it as extra money but this will help us do a better job the classroom. >> just one i'm definitely excited by the peer ours and e resources and be able to maintain the level of services that martin luther king and also being someone that sat in programs over the past year and hearing from the educators and hearing from the administrators and walk through being disheartened by some of the comments and statements of individuals that want to blame the students for what is happening the schools we adult need to find strategies to support our students they can be successful this will definitely help us and understanding the inexhibits that kind of across
8:49 am
the programs so again, this is definitely something that i'm in support and excited to see the most vulnerable students happen to be from certain democrat grachz will get the support i'm excited where we've chosen the resources to provide the environment we're decided the district so thank you for taking the time to listen to the feedback and make those quick decision i know that is not ideal over the course we'll like to weigh in and talk about where the resources go but i appreciate and want to reiterate what happens if we work towards we'll come up with a solution verse that is something we can't see are figure it out and work together to make things happen
8:50 am
sometimes the work will be blessed so thanks. >> commissioner wynns. >> i wanted to go back i'm happy about the more investments of peers i think that those are we actually think the on this way i can think about that that i find out a couple of hours ago we're asked to make a decision those are probably good recommendations, however, i would like to have a better way and one the things this is not the first time this as happens and the same as respectfully to all the staff the same thing is initiated the budget reviews and it seems like we have the budget process with recommendations
8:51 am
that are good recommendations are the beginning budget recommendations and have board members that is a i like this and that and the next thinning the next thing i know those things are not in there what are the suggestions and traffics in what order to prioritize and weigh in and all of a sudden we're going wait as you can see the report one board member asked for this and all of a sudden is it shows up and i don't you know we're in an odd position of having to say well, i kind of like those things but not the way to do it so i'm hoping that both the budget process and as we do this for next year i want to say about the vaping pa discussion i find it nervous making that
8:52 am
basically, we're redoing rear reviewing the master plan until we kind of are not ready to decide forever investments we'll make which i know is true but you know i'm still as i've been saying for a couple of years state your name for the record, sir by this idea we've hired all those teachers and we don't have any more things available to students well i'm reading here that just the give-up of someone saying they don't center room we have cola's classes are not room and take the schedule for the classes to repeat what we've put in place and essential we go back if washington we're sewer planting and the schools are cut from their school budget we were able to cut their own
8:53 am
investments in art and musk teachers by the way, they were getting the peace money and kids don't have time to take the classes anyway so that all seems to has to shack out i think we need to side training with the principals and say what things have you cut you've for the restored by fund like pete to we'll need to be and aligned with the discussion we're looking how kids can possibly take all the things we want them to take or on the verge saying you have to take those things so i think that i'm hoping when i can suggest we have a talk about the design of a process based on the processes we've gone through this year and prior years to make that budget better it seems
8:54 am
to me we can have the peace cca and the board have a list of things we wanted to fund and what order we'll fund if we end up up getting more money this is our first priority and the siding we'll comment but i'm sure there are plenty of other ideas about how we could get in workable knowing this situation we're in not always one day yesterday's or today you find out u found out find out but, in fact, every year it is been speaking many or something that was so time sensitive not to have the deliberate process now a routine we'll look at it and discuss how to prepare and anticipate the way we know the
8:55 am
funds is likely to happen and i'm i instance for example, will be convinced that we need to make more investments in things that are on the board list of priorities we've pass resolutions about we're not investing enough in so not that i want us to ignore those things i want those things to be clearly integrated into the budgeting and thinking i don't think we have a process to do that it is kind of oh, yeah by the way, we did those things i'm hoping e hoping we can learn i have to say i'm kind of still - and last i will want to say i'm sort of when the master plan is updated we go through the process i'm presuming that will
8:56 am
have budget demands in that and not only more which is kind of what we, of course, hear that if everyone, everyone does noted more but more in a targeted way when we get more and maybe move don't invest but put it here instead so i do feel like the - discussion here about the vaping pa we're not ready but i want us to be reabe ready i hope that what's-her-name my questions how can we keep on hire lots more teachers and not structural time available to students
8:57 am
and again in this we're redesigning and working on the middle schools schedules and the high school projects going on so i'm kind of supportive of this but also want to just sound a little warning we have to plan the upcoming years and not plan for exactly this to happen because we just know we're not - we know we won't know how much money we'll get before we make the decision so we all plan for things like this is our contingency plan and thank you to everybody for the work we just came back back if talking to people around the country and some in our own state we are saying to us question don't have this and
8:58 am
that they're looking for basic things to make school more effective for all their students and it is very hard we were quiet about that but for ourselves we feel so privileged and grateful we can say we have all those things because the jeopardy reiterate of the people of san francisco so thank you very much. >> dr. murase. >> permanently patrol officer
8:59 am
fte where multi lingual complifrgs the three is wonderful and but i starred talking i'll say a little bit and if dr. stevens want to elaborate but several years as you may know there were in any pathways that were launched into the mr. pilpal middle schools and we're starting to see them going to high schools mr. starr particularly with the middle schools we saw happening in a number of sites is that given
9:00 am
that their sites budgets were no did changing aside as a result specifically of the pathways per say they were creating additional sections they were expected to create additional sections of the language pathways at the same time, they had same funding to cover their existed electives for music we saw in some cases the sites had to sort of trade off they had to in order to create the sections the languages pathways had to reduce some sections for visual and professionalism arts as we saw that pattern took place in a number of sites we were also seeing increases in the funding from peace for the virtual of professionalism arts in a
9:01 am
limited number of cases not across the board but a selective basis we saw some of the spending plans for peace was for the p funding to priority protected fund for the arrested sections to the sites would not have to you know in a way can only whether i see their art sections to - cover the section added 3 sites. >> may i ask when sites. >> marina and martin luther king. >> i support that i really would like to see more entry points to lack at the middle
9:02 am
schools so i'm very glad about that doesn't the assistant spending plan i want to read for the listening public what the middle schools language classes are superbly at jim's and marijuana at roosevelt and minor and cantonese at ramon hotel i said to emphasize sxinz point it is great to offer music and language but not allowing the students to take both rights this is really we're if i had league of women but at the same time not time to take advantage the amazing sources so like commissioner wynns how to get to a 7 course week to allow students to take advantage of
9:03 am
the many invests that we're making a thank you. >> commissioner murase we agree we don't consider to be sufficient to be sustaining under enrolled classes but provide assess for the students since our comments last week we are getting back to the board before the end of the year and able to lay out the challenges associated with creating the 4 sections during the period of time whether a day of the week or something else. >> all right. seeing none, no more comments from the board say anything but thank you very much i'm happy to see the additional funds and support the uses i think that assess a lot about
9:04 am
the district when we get additional funds we choose to spend our money on the expansion of future resources and i'm supportive and on the support of schools for the relationship to the schools makes a lot of sense but i understand how the inputs we know that the board wants to feel that which i think i want us to feel there is a plan a sense of a large priority we understand and we're sort of working on the same list to the extent that folks feel that is not the case but think about the future with that said, i'm happy about the overall project and a great student co-chair again impressive and, of course, a
9:05 am
great fellow co-chair i'm call a roll call vote and thank you, everyone for your hard work that is an entire district undertaking not on this mr. ms. fleming does extraordinary every year but we worked on together. >> ms. fewer ms. mendoza-mcdonnell dr. murase ms. norton mr. walton ms. wynns mr. haney 7 i's. >> thank you all right. moving on to board members, there is none tonight. moving on to public comment on general matters we want to apologize >> thank you everyone for who has so much patience to wait to speak there evening if there are i'll call up in groups of issues came up i call up the folks from

9:09 am
the board of education you have everybody give eastbound a copy it is out there hello it hurts my stomach ever since i read this i want to puke i never understand the board of education because i come from the black community the bloipt and it is mission rock come now coma now that is not cool i hope you sleep good baby don't let them read the article they'll be mad. >> first of all, i'm going to say i'm not anger my name is rodney and then two grandchildren that are going to the elementary my fourth grader
9:10 am
an honor roll student and the first grader a bright child i know the common core some system is needing focus i'm in a school with no walls and the interference from one classroom to another one is interference they don't have the change to be a focus i know there is a lot of bright kids at the school i want to be able to look forward to the ideas of doors won't be replaced they'll have their individual privacy to move on and be prosperous all i'm asking for and i don't know how much the budget we're not asking for much not asking for $2 million
9:11 am
not all of that we're asking our children to be protected children to be able to have the privacy of from one room to another one not hearing the teachers from the other rooms awhile your teach in this classroom i guess that maybe is enough for me to say not that much in the gieshthsz and skwaimz my children are good children
9:12 am
>>my ms. curtis lee and i to ban kids to go to carver and i take them to school every morning. i have sort of stain around the school to help the staff around there and mine the kids. you know the drill and, you know it's a good school. the good staff members there. good teachers. i know most of them, you know and i call all of them mrs. or mr. but we need doors. we need walls. the kids need doors and walls. they're
9:13 am
in a pod is setting. this voice all over the place. they can't -they don't have a door to close for themselves from the noise and the teachers can't teach the kids can't learn under those conditions. you've got good teachers there. now, it's also a safety security issue. because we all hear in the news about some clown that runs up in the school shooting up the place, but at least the teachers should have somewhere to shelter the kids in case something like that happens. so, i think it's a very very important issue that carver with no-you can't close the classrooms off. and the kids
9:14 am
can't focus because they don't have a classroom setting to focus in. so, i have some things written down but there's no need for me to read it because it just a reiteration of what everyone is going to talk about. carver needs doors and walls separating the classrooms so the kids, so that teachers can teach and the kids can learn. it's hard for them to focus with commotion going on outside the classroom. they can focus on the teachers can't teach because she's distracted. kids are sneaking out of the classroom running through the hallways. >> sir, your time is up >> it's not good. >> thank you. >> so this is what our concern
9:15 am
is that we like your artless consideration. thank you very much. >>[applause] >> good evening superintendent and board of education. thank you. my name is donna smith. i'm the proud family dr. george washington carver elementary school. i'm here to discuss very serious problem. we have no classroom doors or walls to dr. george washington carver. is this equity? this is a cave. separate an unequal. the school was built with an open door plan style in the 1970s. now everyone realize that it makes it really loud and hard for students to focus on one. for years families have asked for more permanent solution. some of the problems at the school district is having the school district is focused on.
9:16 am
it might be civil rights issues or might be a society problem, but this is not a civil rights issue or a society problem. this is a san francisco unified school district problem. no classroom doors and walls is not equitable. there are 2 schools in the unified school district and those 2 schools are in hunters point and bayview. that's really unfortunate good everyone knows that and bayview has the highest crime rate in san francisco. it's just not equitable. i remember reading about a school in atlanta with the teacher was able to prevent her students from being shot because she was able to close the classroom door and locked the door with the desk. that's not wait for a tragedy to happen. we definitely need classroom doors and if not now,
9:17 am
then when? no doors impact learning because of the constant noise of the students -50s headphones for reading and trying to concentrate. several of our students suffer from severe trauma. can i just go a couple more? okay. we have a high teacher to because of the additional stress that we put on our teachers due to poor physical conditions. the staff consular report the difficulty dealing with the noise pollution , the ventilation there's a problem also. it's cold in the winter and hot in the summer and some of the teachers have to leave the exterior [inaudible] to ventilate the room and that's another security risk from people on the outside. please do what is right and please do this as soon as possible and help our children out in bayview. thank you very much. appreciate it. >>[applause]

9:22 am
knowledge. there have been no altercations and even fights in the unsupervised open spaces between classrooms, which are difficult for teachers to resolve without interrupting instruction. the instructional impact. students learning is impaired due to consistent noises resulting from a lack of separation between classrooms. noises flow from one classroom into another. students must use headphones while reading in order to concentrate. teachers avoid potentially-potential loud classroom activities and evolving multimedia interactive games were classroom discussion and, instead, and, instead, and, instead, and, instead,prioritize by their tears. that lack of separation between classes makes teachers focus on compliance rather than engaging in
9:23 am
instruction. [inaudible] insulated drywall partitions, exacerbating noises, pollutants in and between classes. now, the teaching and learning environment. school community members attribute high teacher turnover's. one third of the teachers league each year to additional stress on teachers because of poor physical conditions. staff consistently reports great difficulty in dealing with the noise pollution. additionally, school ventilation systems do not function properly. customs are overly cold in winter and too hot in summer. some teachers report they leave exterior classroom doors to ventilate rooms which create additional security risk. thank you. thank you. >>[applause]

9:42 am
only assume that each of you are on this board because you believe in education, but notches cookie-cutter education. we need to teach our kids in the way that they can learn. please, make the right decision by ensuring that flex remains at independence high school, to ensure they get the education they deserve and need. thank you. >> could even get minus richland wallace. superintendent carranza, president painter haley, rather i'm sorry. other members of the board thank you for listening to me. my daughter was in-for 3 years. she described waited last year and is now in 9th grade. she was doing well enough to where we decided she was mature enough to look around at lowell, at lincoln,

9:46 am
in san francisco that fall between the cracks of these beautiful institutions. we do have beautiful institutions. my son did great awfully through middle school and started his high school education in public system. but he fell between the cracks and i was worried for his safety and his health and his sanity. so, he represents a larger group of people that of children that are disenfranchised or they have exceptional abilities or sensitivities are sometimes easily overlooked in these larger institutions that possibly have undiagnosed dysfunctions impairments or challenges. that don't necessarily show up in standardized testing. their parents are flat and search for safety and stability for these children and that's what flex provides. they enrich the rich learning environment with a lot of camaraderie in connection with the cheaters and so it's
9:47 am
an oasis for the students to offer addendum that winded learning platform so the parent of such a unique child who was boston i recognized him i really implore you to reconsider this decision and to continue giving the space at independence. thank you. >>[applause] >> 52 last carcinoma think everyone for your patience in waiting with us tonight.

10:00 am
up in the world i moved over to 24th and guerrero and paid $300 a month for a very nice studio and a garage. i think if any of the commissioners with a superintendents visited any school faculty room, lunchroom, and talked with folks you would realize the kind of anxiety, desperation people feel and the number of our educators who feel that there's no place here in san francisco and they're looking for the best exit out. you have heard stories from teachers and paraprofessionals in the last number of months with testified to that. there is a crisis in san francisco. there's a crisis statewide and national in terms of being able to recruit enough teachers and school workers to staff the work that we need to do for the children. it is
