are now going on to college so it was great to see out of the 80 students who graduated, about 50 of them were at the ceremony and it was really wonderful. we also -- president fewer and i represented at the summer learning day launch, which was the first day of summer, last friday, and it was wonderful to see some 500 kids come out to play in civic center and to also think about the amount of learning that they could lose during the summer if they don't talk advantage of all of the learning opportunities. thank you fewer for joining us and this was sponsored by supervisor breed. >> now may we please have a report from the augmented rules and policy committee of june 18, 2014. >> yes, this is very sad
because this is my last report as chair of the rules committee. it was fun. so we had three items, one was legislative overview where we heard about the budget and our legislative priorities. the second thing we heard was the charter school memorandum, understanding the facilities use agreement so right over the agreement and the next step is that the agreements will be presented to the board of education for ratification in august of this year. the last item is we discussed the appointment process for the community advisory committee for essential education.
the -- our committee reviewed the current appointment for office which was discussed a bit at our last board meeting. the appointment process is governed by the education code so it's outlined in the district's plan, and so that plan, which was revised in june 2007 is currently being updated. and what the next steps are around that is to coordinate with the administration and the community and the advisory committee itself to ensure the updated plan is consistent where practical with the district board policy 2020 governing our citizen advisory committee. it's an ongoing process for us with the advisory committee itself. we want to headache sure all our advisory committees are to the extent possible governed by 2012, but obviously this [inaudible] gofrned in a different way so that's a process of working with our general council, as well as
staff and committee itself to make sure to the extent possible we're able to align those policies. >> thank you commissioner haney. and may we please have a report from the billings and ground services committee of yesterday? >> we had quite a lively discussion last night. we had a report at 1979 mission street, which is on the corner of mission and 16th street and the proposed 351 apartment units, as well as retail space in the bottom at that location and the impact it will have on marshal elementary school. we also talked about the willy brown academy and the progress being made in the building of that school. the steel has arrived and so if you go by the building you'll start seeing an actual
structure coming into play. so that was very exciting to hear and we're still on schedule to open in 2015 and there are a lot of pieces in place around the marketing of the school, how it's going to be advertised particularly at the -- our annual fair and then we're also going to be hiring a sounding principal so that's going to be another exciting piece to that. and then we had two very interesting reports, one on the custodial services during the summer and we have quite a bit of custodial social securities that need to be implemented throughout the summer because of deep cleaning, because of summer programming, we are going to continue those discussions and better understand how we balance some of the pieces to that. there are -- it was, i think very clear to all of us that we
need more custodians in our district and that how we utilize our custodians, we just need to be thinking about that differently. and then the other piece to that was our permitting on the summer programming so elizabeth lee was available to answer any questions on that. willy green reported on the custodians and then we had larry who came in to talk to us about the work orders and the process in which work orders come through and priorities in which they take and the few number of staff members that he has as well that are helping to maintain all of our district facilities. so we had some really great conversations on how to help him streamline his process. we were actually hoping that there would be an opportunity, superintendent, for some of david's key staff to talk to the principals at some point.
that's something we used to do. maybe in particular some of the new principals, walking them through the process to get work orders completed, to think about how they allocate space and consolidate space for non profits. and permitting, because we think it would be really helpful to have that. thank you. >> thank you. i will now recess -- did you have something to say? i will now recess the regular meeting since the board will be going into closed session. okay, >> we'll presume the regular meeting. i now resume the regular
meeting of the board. and this is the read out of closed session of june 24, 2014. public employment, the board by vote of six is, one accept, approved the krablth of one assistant principal and one program administrator. other informational items posted on the agenda is staff report [inaudible]. this meeting is adjourned. thank day.
