5:16 pm
remember a week ago, we were deep in it. we had extreme heat warnings. what we have offshore now is a system that's really going track to the north of us, essentially, and just keep us in a dry pattern. but it is going to -- the high pressure is gradually building in. as it does, temperatures will begin to get back to -- today upper 80s, low 90s. tomorrow we could see some low 90s. you will see in the five-day forecast a little warmer than that. there is the fog right along the coast. and that fog is pretty thick down there. it's been hanging in tight in pacifica and in san francisco. so these areas -- in daly city, you know the deal. tough out there all day long. if you are in the edgemart district or the sharpe park district, you're wearing jackets. if you are in livermore, you are probably in t-shirts and

original paintings are among the most sought after pieces of '60 art. his art has graced everything from classic albums to eric clapton's rolls royce to fine art galleries. >> i think the reason why i got here is i've been a compulsive drawer. i drew my way through grade school and high school, through art school, and never stopped drawing. >> reporter: his san francisco headquarters was a former firehouse that he got for $100 a month. there, parties and dances abounded and his art exploded onto the international scene. it was dedicated to peace and most definitely anti-vietnam war. then came 1967, the summer of love. ♪ if you're going to san francisco ♪ >> what they call the summer of love, but it was just an influx

breaking news on the east coast where a six-alarm fire is burning in boston in an apartment building that is under construction. you are looking at live pictures from the scene. you can see the smoke from that building. for those who know the boston area it is burning on dorchester avenue. firefighters have been climbing ladders to try to douse the flames. officials say the wood-framed six-floor structure has 83 units. there is concern now that the structure could collapse. the building was scheduled to be completed within the next month and tenants were supposed to start moving in on july 15th. that is according to the boston fire department. again, live pictures out of boston tonight of an apartment building fire. it was under construction. so far there is no word on what started this fire but officials say workers were testing out equipment right before the fire started. crews are expected to be on the scene throughout the night.
5:30 pm
we are working to get more information again on this breaking news coming out of boston of this apartment fire that was under construction. when we do get more information we will let you know. now to a story that 2 investigates first broke on may 10th regarding sexual assault cases at palo alto high school and the school district's investigation and policy changes. since that first report there have now been 19 new complaints filed with the district. and just about 30 minutes ago the superintendent updated school board members with the latest on the investigation as they continue making revisions to critical policies. ktvu's jesse gary is the one who first broke this story. a lot of developments since that first report, jesse. >> reporter: frank, that's right. that special meeting where the superintendent was updating the board, that meeting was extended. it was intoafd toned at 5:00. it is just starting to wrap up now because these are such weighty and complex issues. this is a continuation of
5:31 pm
efforts by the board to better respond to complaints of alleged sexual assault. if we can let's take a look at video. they're particularly looking to clarify languages in policies covering sexual discrimination and the uniform complaint procedures. the district is taking these steps as part of its resolution agreement with the department of education office of civil rights. just three months ago the ocr closed a four-month investigation and found that the pau serks failed to -- that the agency failed to take steps in incidents dating back to 2013. a an athlete was convicted of having oral sex with a 14-year- old girl in a school bathroom.
5:32 pm
since then there have been revelations of a sexual assault of a 16-year-old girl. many parents say they distrust officials to take the necessary steps to produce change and keep their kids safe. >> once a child has come forward and let a staff member know, anybody know that they've been assaulted, so many things should have fallen into place that didn't. and it will make the trust of these children so difficult. it will make it very difficult for the children to trust. >> reporter: board members have entrusted an attorney with rewriting policy so they're in compliance with the ocr but she says the district is working with a complex set of rules and regulations, laws that she is trying to take and make more clear adding, more often than not families or students who file a complaint are not looking for a formal process,
5:33 pm
they just want the offensive behavior to stop. coming up in the next hour we will talk about filing a complaint. the district has a new tool in that. we will discuss it coming up at 6:30. for now, live in palo alto, jesse gary, ktvu fox 2 news. >> you kind of touched object this but it is such a complex issue for the parents of a child that has been sexually assaulted, what specifically is it that those parents want to see happen? >> reporter: well, they want to see change, frankly, frank. they want to make sure that if a complaint comes forward there is appropriate action taken. there is so many laws and rules and nuances. there were actually inside talking about the definition of inappropriate. that's one of the things they have to specifically spell out in the new policies to make sure they're in compliance with the ocr. that's how fine a needle they are threading when it comes to all of the policies involved in the district. that is why it is taking so long and why there's so much
5:34 pm
confusion. a lot of these policies conflicted, so they have to go through and look at with it a fine-tooth comb and rewait them, make sure they're in compliance. that's the first step for the attorney, and then the second step is to make it clear and easy and teachable. remember, july 1st, i'm sorry, august 1st, they're going to have to start having training sessions with district staff, teachers, et cetera. if this is all so confusing, how do you teach it to somebody some so the first order of business is to make sure they're in compliance. after that they want to come up with something that is clear enough that they can teach it to the staffers, teachers, principles within the district. >> they're hoping to have this done by august 1st? >> reporter: well, you know, they have to get it done by august 1st, because that is when the training begins. so the superintendent is pushing full steam ahead. there was talk about hopefully
5:35 pm
the last board meeting. it will not be. they could not get to everything associated with this today because there is so much. so they just wanted to put it out on the table and a have board members have a chance to talk about it and express their views, then they are going to come back again. they have not said when the next meeting is but they're going to come back, probably in another week, and try to delve more into this. to your point, frank, there is a new form that you will be able to fill out as a parent or student when it comes to reporting cases of sexual assault in the district that just went live today, about a half-hour ago. we will talk about that at 6:30, frank. >> a lot of work ahead. jesse gary in palo alto, thank you. a judge set bail at $6.5 million for a santa cruz neurosurgeon accused of sexual abuse of children. he was arrested at his home as part of an investigation into a child sex abuse ring. the 57-year-old doctor is facing 11 felony charms of
5:36 pm
sexually assaulting two boys and a girl all under the age of 14. he has pleaded not guilty. the cases led to the arrest of two nurses what face child sex charges. prosecutors called him a public danger who recruits women to help find child victims. san francisco police are looking for two men who robbed a man at gunpoint while he was lying in his own bed. it happened yesterday afternoon on ellsworth street. investigators say the two suspects broke into a house and spotted the 42-year-old man in bed. they pointed a gun at him and demanded that he hand over his belongings. they then ransacked his home and took off with a rifle, a cell phone, a computer and a necklace. fortunately the victim was not hurt. an alameda county initiative to hire people who have been released from jail or prison has fallen far short of its goals. that's frustrating for the former inmates who are now looking for jobs. rob roth joins us now after he
5:37 pm
spoke with a former prisoner who is looking for work. >> reporter: alameda county calls it the re-entry hiring initiative. the goal is to provide 1400 county jobs to people who were formerly incarcerated. it was passed last year but now a year later only five have gotten full-time jobs and the other has been hired part-time. marcus served seven months in jail for armed robbery. he was released last year. >> i got kids to feed. i can feed them. crime just happens. >> reporter: since his release he says he's been unable to find a job. he says he's sure he knows the reason why. >> they see my robbery. they're like, nah, he's going to steal something, he's not going to work. but i honestly work. it's just hard to find a job. >> reporter: he is among dozens protesting out of frustration in front of the alameda county
5:38 pm
administration building. they say the small handful of hires is not enough. >> five jobs plus a sixth temporary one is not enough. it's unacceptable. we know they could hire more people. >> we're all disappoint that we don't have more jobs. >> reporter: supervisor keith carson is the author of the initiative. >> working with the government is a slow and challenging process. we have to go through civil service issues. we had to go through working with each of our departments. >> they could have been trying to get people hired. they could have been helping people pass the civil service test. they could have been doing all they can do to get people hired. those are not substantial reasons why they have not hired more people. >> reporter: why the number 1400? that's the number of inmates relossed into alameda county last year. officials say the problem is not that many entry-level jobs opened one the county but they're working to bring in employers from the private sector to help in the effort. >> now that we are coalescing with the private sector, other governmental agencies which
5:39 pm
broadens the number, i think that we will be able to move much quicker. >> i just hope they take their word and do what they said they're going to do and hire us so i can get a job so i won't end up back in jail. >> the county says there were a lot of growing pains but they're confident the number of hires will be bettary year from now. julie. >> are there any services or anything they can do in the meantime? >> reporter: there are resources that work with people coming out of jails and prisons, job training, and there's education programs. but they move slow, and a lot of them haven't been all that effective in placing the jobs. so the county was hoping since they're a big employer, that they could be the ones that actually create the jobs and work within the county, but it is proving to be a lot harder than they originally thought it was going to be. >> slow process. rob roth in the newsroom, thank
5:40 pm

were upset over the pricing model for the splashy forward go bikes. >> reporter: we took a test ride of the ford go bike with ceo jay walder. he has paired up with the transportation agency rolling out 8,000 bikes on city streets. >> the reality is that i think the things we can do that increase biking in general help our cities, help our region, and help all of us. >> reporter: the program rollout hit a snag last week when companies worried that motivate was trying to steal their business with the competitive pricing model. >> there was a question about a product called the go pass that would have allowed for longer trips. we have taken that o. it is not being offered. it's not on the kiosk, it's not on oural. we don't want this to be a conflict. >> the last couple of weeks were not marked by a lot of warm if you saidiness.
5:44 pm
