table and provide input on what the new ambulance contract should include. the county will listen but the san jose fire department has to improve its response time. a fight is brewing over how a new ambulance contract should look in the county. >> one that has been taken off the table is the possibility of a public/private partnership. >> reporter: that was from the fire chiefs association that urged the county to be inclusive and accept ideas from the cities it serves as it finalizes its request for proposal. >> it is really just a draft. >> reporter: the county executive says the board of supervisors will take up the issue tuesday. one concern the board has is the san jose fire department continues to miss its response time standards. that standard is to get to a call under eight minutes. smith says the department is missing the mark 30% of the time. >> only having 70% responsive

6:04 pm
napa and sonoma counties. san francisco and the east bay. you can see this impressive stream of subtropical moisture we've been tracking the past couple of days and that's the main reason why this rainfall held up enough to give us some rain drops. now i want to take you into the rainfall totals. we had the most here across san francisco. again, it's not much but a soaking rain at least helped to lower that fire danger. .06 of an inch in hayes valley, sunny side and westwood park coming in at .05 of an inch. more down the peninsula with .04 of an inch. across contra costa we did pick up .04 in lafayette down to the hayward hills, .02 and then checking in right now with .04 back into livermore. on the radar there's not a ton left right now, but we are not done with our chances of showers. in fact, two more chances over the next five days. i'm detailing that in about five

6:11 pm
detectors to check the air surrounding several scorched homes in middletown today. once an area is cleared, they combed through debris looking for household products that could put cleanup crews at risk. one of the things epa crews are looking for are heaters like this that may still have propane tanks inside them. they didn't have to look far. not only did they find propane tanks but also paint cans and other household products that could be dangerous. >> the thing that scares me the most are any compressed gas cylinders that didn't vent as they were supposed to when consumed in a fire. >> reporter: in the next month epa crews expect to search more than 1,200 homes destroyed by the valley fire. sharon dawson lost her historic home built in 1880. >> i got out with my animals. i got out with my family. >> reporter: somehow her bird house survived the inferno. sharon considers it a symbol of hope. she also welcomes the epa crews.

insurance offering caution to victims of the recent wildfires, warning them to be aware of the risks and dangers of using unlicensed contractors to rebuild. we reported public adjustors may be involved in scamming fire victims. that is not true. public adjustors are licensed by the department of insurance to negotiate the settlement of claims with companies on behalf of homeowners. for the service they generally charge the homeowners a percentage of the final insurance claim. the department of insurance recommend homeowners check with them to verify that a public adjuster has been licensed by the state. so what's happening to the fur seals? dozens of fur seals born 200 miles away with washing up along california shores at an alarming rate. they're hungry, they're weak, and many just aren't surviving. chuck coppola, researchers say
6:18 pm
they're worried and water temperatures could be connected to this? >> reporter: absolutely right and the numbers are stunning. 80 have watched ashore on california beaches this year alone. that's eight times the number usually seen. the survivors were brought here. never before have researchers and volunteers in marin county center seen so many guadalupe fur seals brought in barely alive. 33 of them this year alone. >> we're very concerned about the species in particular because they are threatened. to see so many numbers of seals this year makes us very concerned there's a bigger problem. >> reporter: the fur seals are listed as threatened. they washed ashore emaciated. the marine mammals cannot find enough food. >> all up and down the east coast and north into washington and oregon, they've been reported up there as well. >> reporter: warmer ocean temperatures have driven away

the fur seals' main source of food, anchovies, sardines, and squid. >> we had to hold him still for safety, get a tube into their stomach and pump in the food and any medication from the vets. they responded pretty well, most of them. unfortunately, some of them by the time they arrived were beyond help. >> reporter: only 11 were recovered and tagged with satellite trackers to see where they go. after birth off the baja coast they spend most of their lives at sea. resear researchers fear el nino's season may make it worse for them and sea lions head. they weave their heads back and forth from neurotoxins. >> as climate change occurs, we are very concerned that we may see more increasing numbers of animals like we have this year. >> reporter: additional tracking and data and alysis of the food
6:20 pm
chain that also leads to humans. reporting live i'm chuck coppola, nbc bay area news. so much to worry about with this el nemo and how they're going to impact us in the next couple of months. let's bring in jeff ranieri. i know you're keeping a close eye on what el nino could bring for us. >> what exactly causes that heavier rainfall here across california. we have the storms moving in on this westerly storm track that's pretty typical. we get the jet stream pushing up from the south and it's all about that subtropical jet stream that helps to provide copious amounts of moisture. if it goes right here towards the bay area, it's like a big hose on california we could see a ton of rainfall.
6:21 pm
it's all about where the subtropical jet stream sets up and the best potential of rain mid-december through march. we are expecting the possibility of a few showers mainly in the morning and then clearing by the afternoon leaving us with 77 in the south bay and san francisco at 86. we will have warmer temperatures coming our way with 82 in the south bay. the tri-valley 84 and san francisco 69. speaking of this weekend, watch out for hurricane joaquin. right now winds at 105 miles per how. it's on a track towards the carolinas by sunday could make a landfall near cape hatteras with winds at 100 miles an hour. >> see you soon. thanks, jeff. coming up, cutting ties with bill cosby. the honor a local university is

6:23 pm
6:24 pm
received during his long career, are now being stripped away one at a time. today, the university of san honors that comedian bill cosby received are being tripped away one at a time. today the university of san francisco rescinded his honorary degree. cosby was awarded the degree in 2012. what you're looking at is video of the median speak to go that
6:25 pm
graduating class. usf says his behavior is inconsistent with the criteria for an honorary degree. he has admitted to having extramarital relationships with women and others have accused him of raping them though he's never been criminally charged. breaking the glass ceiling may take longer than many thought. that's the message coming from facebook coo sheryl sandberg. peggy bunker is here with us now with the startling research from sandberg's lean-in organization. >> reporter: facebook executive sheryl sandberg has been an advocate for working women and is asking corporate america to catch up. according to new research from it will take well over 100 years for gender equality at the executive level. it revealed survey data from nearly 30,000 employees surveyed. it showed women were
6:26 pm
underrepresented at every level in corporate america. the numbers showed this is not because of women leaving the work place for family obligations but rather women face steeper, more difficult paths in getting those jobs. sandberg writes, quote, companies cannot improve what they don't measure. men and women have very different networks. if mostly men are running the companies by default women have less access to ways to accelerate their careers. only half of the employees agree with that. also inequality starts at home. about 41% of women reported doing more child care. 31% reported doing more housework than their partners. the challenges women and companies face with many now developing diversity at the top.

sandberg says we were able to send someone to the moon with eight years of concerted effort. she is encouraging executives to focus on this mission with the same urgency. janelle and jess, back to you. >> amen to that. thank you, peggy. coming up, no pay for play. the reason judges say colleges should not pay their players despite huge profits. plus -- >> there were a lot of loopholes where kids were falling through the cracks. >> a bay area district that called police on students more than almost any school district in the country. coming up, why one official says officers were killed nearly 1,800 times in a single school year. response to c
6:28 pm
6:29 pm
6:30 pm
here's a question for all of you parents out there. should a school's response to classroom problems involve bringing in the police? ot= ght we investigate one bay area school district that called the police more than any other scstrict in the bay area, and nearly every school district in the country, too. >> we showed you earlier how a school's discipline plan can 'eave your child with a criminal record before they even hit puberty. >> tonight investigative prisoer digs deeper into what's behind the high numbers. sc we have all probably heard the phrase school to prison tipeline, a trend where certain discipline policies in schools affect long term especially =ouority by ensuring they'll go
6:31 pm
from school to prison. tonight we investigate how it's happening and what schools should be doing to stop it. >> hi. good afternoon. >> reporter: adacrosby is trying to erase what she spent the last two years trying to forget. >> how would i go about that, sir? >> reporter: she's on the phone to request an application to have her son's criminal record sealed. adrian crosby is her son, he use add rock to scribble his initials on to a school sidewalk. he's autistic and thought if other students recognized his name on the ground they'd like him more. >> they said i was doing something inappropriate but i wanted to be a legend. >> the crime is vandalism. >> reporter: this resource officer handed him a juvenile probation that put an arrest on his criminal record. >> they made me feel fear. they made me feel like i was getting betrayed by the school.
6:32 pm
>> reporter: the u.s. department of education requires every school in the country to keep track of how often students are referred to law enforcement. we sorted through the most recent data. thousands of pages worth, and discovered that one bay area school district was among the top in the nation for how often it called police on this student. out of more than 16,000 school districts, east side union high n hool district in san jose heck o 14th. it referred students to police 1,745 times in the 2011-2012 school year. chris funk is the district superintendent. can you justify why police officers were used so often? >> i think if a student had a knife on campus, the default because of zero tolerance was to have the student cited. if they found a bag of marijuana, they automatically have the student cited. >> reporter: you're saying
6:33 pm
there's more than 1,700 incidents either involve drugs or weapons? >> well, back in 011 we have approximately 24,000 students. >> reporter: the u.s. department of education doesn't require schools to release why students were referred to police. the much larger school districts didn't even come close to east side union for the same time period oakland's unified enrolled nearly 15,000 more students in east side union but only referred 12 students to law enforcement. remember, east side union referred over 1,700. >> i think that we had a pr practice here where we are relying too much on having the officer do the facilitation and the leg work versus the administration doing the leg work. >> reporter: funk was named superintendent in 2012. the district has since doubled the number of its counselors. social workers are on every campus, and those more than 1,700 referrals to police dropped to 214 during the
6:34 pm
2013-2014 school year. but those lower rates are still among the highest in the bay area. and just like in 2011, minorities were sent to police at disproportionately high rates. children with disabilities made up 10% of the population but totalled 25% of all students referred to law enforcement. hispanic children represented 45% of the population but 73% of all students referred to police. >> that's an issue. we've got to solve that. >> reporter: the district hires local police officers to patrol nearly all of its schools. in fact, 76% of high schools across the country have officers or security right on campus while the goal is to make schools safer, some believe students can actually be harmed when schools decide to involve police in cases of minor misbehavior. >> it's tragic. >> reporter: chief laura garnett had adult and juvenile probation department in santa clara county
6:35 pm
and says when a child is put in the criminal justice system at an early age, they begin to identify as a criminal and are more likely to offend again even as an adult. >> our system is a system that it's really easy to get into and it's really hard to get out. >> reporter: students can even get juvenile citation like the one adrian received, equivalent to an arrest and go on a child's criminal record. those students then have to meet with juvenile probation officers. >> i think we certainly see a lot of cases that we say, seriously? >> reporter: garnett says close to 70% of the time her probation officers decide the offense isn't actually serious enough to get referred to the district attorney for criminal charges. much of the damage is already done. the child can still be left with a criminal record? >> it will still show an arrest on their rap sheet, yes, absolutely. they've been arrested. if the case comes to us, they've been arrested, whether they were put in handcuffs and brought to
6:36 pm
us or given a slip of paper, they've been arrested. >> reporter: is that fair? >> well, i mean, no, i don't think it's fair. >> reporter: but it's the re reality for adrian. a 15-year-old with autism and a criminal record. >> it makes you want to collapse and just stop being because there's so much pain. you don't want to exist anymore. >> reporter: ada says her son's probation officer closed the case since it wasn't a serious offense. adrian had even cleaned off his initial initials with soap and water. but ada says the probation officer never mentioned adrian would have a criminal record. ada didn't know until we told her, and that's when she called the probation department. >> i just found out right now, two years later. >> reporter: a juvenile court judge can order that a child's criminal history be wiped clean, but there are no guarantees.
6:37 pm
and by law you can't start the process until the child turns 18. ada says she often cries herself to sleep worrying about adrian's future. >> tears because you don't know what's going to happen with your baby. y-to-uorter: and to find out how often your child's school sends students to police you can check out an easy to use database that we created and posted on our website. that's, just click the investigations tab. and there viewers can watch part one of our investigation. >> that database is a great idea for people to go directly and unit out what's happening in i-pir district. sendanks. if you have a tip for the investigative unit give us a call 888-996-tips or send us an e-mail to theuni theunit signs of the el nino are boat documented at sea. unusually warm water attracting other unexpected creatures to the bay area.

federal appeals court says schools cannot pay college-athletes to make they will not be paid to play. a federal appeals court says schools cannot pay college athletes to make use of their likeness. that decision overturns part of a lower court ruling that calls for players to be paid up to $5,000 apiece tore the use of their image or name. the panel agreed the schools involved violated antitrust laws by profiting off the athletes' images. the ruling now prevents colleges from using player names and likenesses in videos, games, and

think we're already scientists are predicting a record el nino year and some think we're already experiencing some of the signs of that. >> researchers observing and documenting the signs out at sea. kn we go on their journey. good morning. >> reporter: in the orange dawn of the bay area --
6:45 pm
>> we're going to go west a little bit further. >> reporter: a research boat heads out of sosilito to the pacific ocean. for ten days this team is in the marine sanctuary taking a scientific snapshot of the ocean life. >> our sampling effort looks at birds, mammals, boat activity. >> reporter: this year researchers are witnessing signs of something unusual. >> it's been really warm because of the presence of the blob. >> reporter: a name scientists have given to the pockets of unusually warm water lingering along the west coast, some believe it's a sign of the coming el nino. researcher jaime and his team use nets to collect and study a prime food source for birds and whales. so far the crill sample point to
6:46 pm
el nino conditions. >> most of them were fairly small. >> we should have been seeing a lot but we're really not. >> reporter: the research nets turned up something quite unusual. >> this is a red crab. >> reporter: a small red crab found in warm waters of southern california. >> the last time i personally saw in this region red crabs was in the 1983-'84 el nino. >> reporter: other southern california residents making surprise bay area appearances, sun fish and dolphins. >> we've seen anywhere from 150 to 200 common dolphins. it's a good sign that the water is warmer than what we normally see, and that's a sign of el nino. >> reporter: part of the team's research involves cruising set paths of ocean, recording every bird, every mammal in sight. >> and one california sea lion. >> do you see whales there? >> reporter: comes the telltale spout of a whale.
6:47 pm
whales have begun moving closer to shore to dine on fish. >> this is basically the best restaurant on the west coast. >> this information is used to help us understand how the ocean ecosystem here and the sanctuaries is thriving. >> reporter: this annual expedition is nature's ultimate reality show. currents of life and death churning just west of the gate. nbc bay area news. wow. that is gorgeous. what a great job. well, jeff ranieri has been tracking the possibility of el nino. he joins us now with more. jeff? >> we know the sea surface temperatures are running at least two degrees celsius above average so we have the warmer waters in the pacific and el nino is going to happen. the biggest question exactly where the heaviest rainfall will occur. there is, of course, always a better chance of los angeles, southern california getting the heaviest rainfall and that's because el nino brings these
6:48 pm
impacts in from the south. the bay area still has an above average chance right now the way the forecast models have it from mid-december right through march. so there's not an exact day or time line on that but, again, that is at least the range of when we will see some of these el nemo ino impacts. doppler radar, we did have a few showers this moisture did come in from the south with subtropical flow. some would say that little el nino related, how the storm system moved in. we do have the next batch of showers offshore. it may not get to san francisco until about 9:22 tonight. up until then we will have areas of drizzle and we won't be done with the chance of showers late tonight. in fact, another chance of showers for tomorrow morning and temperatures starting off cool. everyone will have the possibility here in the north bay beginning with 54, san francisco 60, and down to the south bay we'll start off with 59. this upper level area of low pressure tomorrow begins to move
6:49 pm
onshore and the core of that energy will move just to the south, so we think the counterclockwise motion around that low area of pressure will push in showers. it will be cool and cloudy and sun by the noon. how much rainfall will we get? let's take a look at our estimated rainfall totals. it does with subtropical moisture. i anywhere from san francisco to the south, .05 to a tenth of an inch, then we're in for more changes by this weekend. so here's the deal. saturday is the best day to be outside. we have temperatures warming up five to ten degrees. we'll have sunshine with it but then as we head throughout sunday, there's an increasing chance of a storm system dropping down from the north that will have another chance of showers again on sunday. now the big storm system, maybe trace amounts, but it will also usher in cooler temperatures as well. let's take you to the micro climate forecast as we head throughout thursday and you can see the possibility of showers in the morning for san
6:50 pm
francisco. temps in the 60s heading up to pal alto near facebook, google, 75. 76 expected in san jose. the north bay, east bay and the t tri-valley, 70s all around. oakland expecting 71. so, again, hotter weather right through friday and saturday and then that slight chance of showers once we hit sunday's forecast and also much cooler. jess and janelle, we are so excited about that el knee in the weather department. i check on the rain outlooks and keep clicking on it. it's going to happen. >> it's exciting. thanks, jeff. this not so exciting. it was painful to watch. the rival dodgers celebrating their n.l. west title at at&t park but the giants can spoil the party for the boys in blue.
