additional resources we're anticipating that basis if the board approvals this policy to have some conversations between site administrators and teachers as they are planning their instruction there will be principle exemptions around the policy which is referenced around the appropriate use and above all thank you commissioner norton for your writing this policy below all no zealousness one way or other banning clips in the classrooms but not have the attitude you're showing something from the lion king and pressure port to be part of the biological to tie the instructional clips to the curriculum so what will come from this a series of guidelines
and principles will be included in what the guidelines will look like and then dialog between the teachers and the site administrator so we don't expect this to be a controversial norman and as commissioner norton mentioned we have a vast majority have teachers that are using extremely good judgment that will help us put perimeters around instances we wish there was more structure. >> can i had a follow-up question how this applies to after school programming. >> we can get back to you specifically i think part of what mr. truit and his department has done i think you'll agree having a student watch a full length movie is not
the way to exercise the mind and body so we'll have did the around this. >> i have commissioner vice president haney and delegate. >> can i respond to superintendent carranza i think it's a good question and the instructor to create a policy i love about thinking about after school but as far as enforcement so depending on how this happens sometimes is a conversation or a written warning i think depended on the administrators discretion and enforcement. >> commissioner vice president haney. >> i'm a little bit invented it the circle of life is not part
of the curriculum (laughter) but i wanted to thank commissioner norton that was an issue we've talked about a number of months ago i really appreciate the way you went about this and how careful the language is and the balance working with the curriculum staff and that all of us knew that was a tricky issue of how it was defined. >> what was the right time to use it is it a provided guidelines at the same time give the flexibility that's needed that the instructor brought up i hope we community that to our teachers and make sure that we are providing the need begins and clarity around this so we're not sending the message they can't use the lion king or
reiterating i want to give the wrong message there's a lot of things in the media is a power he teaching tool so thank you for balancing this carefully i'll have to look at the lion king in a different way now (laughter). >> delegate chair. >> thank you commissioner president murase i'd like to thank rachel norton i feel like when i am in my classroom i feel like the teachers are over using the random videos i'm not going to name teachers i really like this proposal i never knew you shouldn't exceed two hours when you're on your phone or computers that proposal will definitely help thank you. >> commissioner wynns and
commissioner fewer i'm interested particularly in the participation of teachers and principles in the development so i'd like to you know have an update i'm interested in that and when we implement that how - i'd like an update to how it gets incorporated into the planning and the curriculum development of the school sites with the instructionsal development at the school sites because in my commerce not having a teacher or principle but that's the kind of thing that is rarely discussed at school sites how effective the use of whatever you're using to supplement your curriculum
materials and how fast to maximize the effectiveness i'll be interested to hear with the principles and teachers have to say how it plays ate u out it is something not easy for a lot of people so whatever we can i mean my interests maybe just to inform myself but i think this is a real something where the colleagues and peers can help each other a lot i'd like to know how that develops thank you commissioner norton so for bringing this forward. >> commissioner fewer. >> thank you. i think this is appropriate to bring now as we do our curriculum mapping as we require teachers to do the curriculum mapping with the common core there will be a lot of film clips and things of that nature although i think that bullying letters day off is great i can see how it's
inappropriate for our students and i do think throughout i mean having children in the school district 3 of them i've witnessed myself an inappropriate use of film so thank you for breaking and entering this forward. >> given this the resolution i'd like to ask the author if your name's can be added to the resolution any further comment seeing none roll call vote. >> on this as amended public utilities ms. so on at that commissioner fewer mr. haney. >> ms. mendoza-mcdonnell arrest ms. norton. >> minnesota. >> mr. walton and dr. murase. >> 7 i's. >> thank you very much or thank you commissioner norton the next item is item j request for

final fall allocations that were given to them in the fall for the last few months to look at the data patterns and revise my necessary tragedies we consider the resources the general look at the plan heretofore have the parent and community meetings involve as many stakeholders as possible and take a look at whether or not they need to make changes to what's been approved in the spring they worked closely with like i said the parented and community with the lead that's why superintendent is here and with multiple passageway departments and other offices to get answers to their questions and anything having to do with parity for
their council they've been working diligently and to close out the process we're required to formally request approval from that being said the question on the table is that the board of education of san francisco unified school district approve the self-sufficient and san francisco county office 2014, 2015 final balance scorecards and plans to the student achievement and discussion questions or comments so thank you so do we review those? do we see them so i see that we're asked to approve them does the board actually see them for approval i think nothing is attached here. >> commissioners you were sent the links about a month ago
least a month ago i think roderick sent me a comprehensive overview and commissioner walton. >> a clarification i think a question to clarify this is this so i understand the schools did their scorecards so this is the final part they submitted it before and so what we see in this e-mail we got a month ago if we were to compare the two from if the proposal to the final should we see a amateur; is that correct. >> were going to see a strong alignment in some cases the whole idea we're going to take a
close work on the revisions just to keep the plan updated and make revisions over the summer and anything if the adjustments from the spring yes, this is a closing out of the process that was gone a year ago. >> so for example if we saw that some schools got an increase in students maybe newcomers we might see on adjustment in the balanced scorecard for this final review. >> exactly that would have been a really good example of the sort of conversation the principles with the staff and the community members and the counsels based on that new information that's exactly the sort of example that would be make this final revision an important part of the process. >> so in the document is this a
month ago would did you also sunday the balanced scorecards for the spring so you can compare. >> yes. it's a same document a revision to the document that. >> did you send us the original proposal for us to compare to the revision. >> yes. the length we've shown all the revisions. >> and how in the spring a certain projection when i reviewed this in the past sometimes an enforcement drop of one hundred and 75 students is this something in the scorecards. >> it would be something you'll see in the scorecards absolutely. >> thank you very much. >> on the questions or comments from colleagues?
