4:18 am
chartered we turned to down in the first place there was not room a lot of impacts and imtions from the school district from the state approved facilities related i mean, i'll not be supporting but those who said don't go away this will in my view a procedural step to cbo through because they've changed the law any state held charter goes back to 9 chapter that denied them in the first place that's what we're doing. >> commissioner fewer. >> thank you, everyone that came out today so i went back to visit and spent hours thank you to the principal for spending some of her valuable time and explain about this school i just must say in general i'm not in
4:19 am
favor of the chart schools i believe if you're part of public education system we believe you're part a greater social change whether or not you, you like that every family and every board members or administrator you're a part of a large social change we're educating the future of this world so i believe that bringing everyone up on that don't believe that in small parts of society being picked to be in a certain learning environment and then they're successful and then we get comments that say that that led others to building you can't be successful in a public school in san francisco i want to say that you can get a great education in many of our san francisco public schools and it
4:20 am
is a fallacy to building that you must attend a chapter or public in order to receive an excellent education we're no a perfect system i think that everyone up here will tell you we're not a perfect system that is, i am a fourth generations and four generations of my family have been educated in san francisco public schools and so i'm very grateful for the san francisco public schools system and i think that is worth noting that i am glad that the families that came today are saying that mission prep is working well, for them this is great but it is worth noting that there were thousands of families who also believed the san francisco public schools system is serving their children well,
4:21 am
i don't know it is just the chapter school or that private school that delivers an education i'm a product of san francisco public schools as are my children i believe i received an excellent education and so did my children i believe in public education having said that, i think i went out to mission prep and i think i like what i saw i have to say all the kids were there but that is different educating 200 and 31 children compared to 57 thousand a very different thing awhile we'll say this is excellent and getting excellent results if the result were better than the san francisco unified school district results the truth is it is easier with 200 and 31 children than 57 thousand so the
4:22 am
people are here in favor of mission prep i want you to, we're a family of public education chapter schools and public schools but to hear disparkinson's remarks about our public school system the board members working hard as stds of this system $500,000 a month we do it act out a of a labor of live the life-saving as an equalizer in our society having said that, i know that we're bound by certain rules and regulations in the state around chapter schools i was part of the group that was denied if charter 5 years ago and unable to find a reason to not vote for this today and so i'll be
4:23 am
supporting that but i want to say on record that i truly believe that the feeling that heave i've heard from parents not unable to assess a fabulous education 0 through our public schools is not true you don't believe i don't want people to building it is not true thousands and thousands and thousands of families for whom the public schools in san francisco is serving very, very well but thank you for coming i'll support you're school and thank you, again, for the principal spending her precious howsoever sharing the success of mission prep thank you very much. >> commissioner norton. >> thank you i want to thank you commissioner fewer for those racks no need to
4:24 am
dispager other communities with the remarks for you're school that is wonderful not disparage other districts there are many, many more schools that are conceding for their district i know many more students i have to respond to that that is an unfortunate tone that was set tonight with that said, i intend to support this petition for the first reason that i heard a lot of testimony from families both in the budget and the other committees about how the school is working for the students and how important for them i appreciate that and it is very hard to anything working looking families in the eye and not say you can't have you're - i don't know who is doing that. >> the second reason as mentioned it is very clear that
4:25 am
show we deny this petition this evening the state board will go ahead and grant it i have seen them grant much weaker petition and impose the school we didn't want president in our district we're stuck with so given that reality is just better for us to be the authorizer and start to build that relationship rather than have no relationship and no oversight with you but i want you to understand the impact you'll have on our district particularly for the prop 39 asking for a building and should we be forced to award you something you'll displace other families at other schools that's a fact so i hope you will be mindful a
4:26 am
district authorized school that you are part of our district that you need to be acholic beverage with us and mindful of you're effect on other students and folks in this school district. >> commissioner walton. >> i want to start off any comments one i really think that charter schools if you look at what we are trying to do with education as a matter of fact we have to make hard discussions how we supports traditional schools and at the end of the day charter schools were developed we were supposed to take the innovation in some of the charter schools not playing by the same rules and bring that innovation to the school system to develop greater than schools within the district i'll say i appreciate all the parents and
4:27 am
students that came out today, i too had a chance to visit mission prep and saw students existed about learning and quality teach going on so i do have to say what i observed is something i can get excited about but just to be clear this is disheartening that some of the families have been led to building that one they can't get a quality education within the schools and two, that they feel we have to have conversation that will divide us in our focus and take us away from what we should be focusing on making sure that all the students have a quality opportunity to learn i can't find a not find a legal reason but charter schools going
4:28 am
against public schools will not be a system to funds for years to come but work together with innovation additional opportunities that exit in all our public schools. >> commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell and then commissioner wynns. >> thank you. i think what you're hearing from my colleagues, i think that was the same feeling the first time arena having said that, go a lot of students in the room i want to thank them and acknowledge the work with the mission prep is great and congratulate them for committing themselves to the education in san francisco urban if i had i'm going to support the petition as well there is a couple of things i think uniform of which my colleagues said there is a couple of things for
4:29 am
me resonated i want to just appreciate and one the idea that you could go straight as to the state and likely get our charter we've seen charters come through not wasting their time by going through the process they know they can get their charters through the states over the several years you've grown and appreciated the challenges many of our families face in certain community and i want to acknowledge that because the be our doing within the communities that you've committed to serve and stay in the community you've commit to service has been strong and you know oftentimes we have had chapterers that have committed to certain community
4:30 am
and moved around their population in the morning likes like the population they've committed to you've demonstrated in the showing but you know i've heard it through a vartdz of conversation through board members or names that are served at mission prep that the quality of education that they're receiving the relationships they have all have true matt haney for them this is important to me so you know these are exactly the same kinds of things we'll expect in all our schools we have in all our schools and the piece around you know whether you only want to ago to private school or catholic schools you're experience is bad not everybody will have a
4:31 am
positive experience in our public schools and i think what i did other piece f more /* for any prediction you've found a place to go i rather that mission prep be under our charter we can working closely together and have a different relationship and have all lets families that are here tonight be considered our families as public school parents and not think about that as the you know yours and ours so i think that the charter will depend on how you approach the issue and for me you know charter schools are our kids and families this is san francisco
4:32 am
we really want to think about how to do best for our kids i hope you'll stick to our commitment to work working closely with us and insure you're doing right by your convicts within the confines of a system that has some constraints but i'm supporting this tonight i truly believe that the kids at mission prep are our kids and you know our charter schools are our public schools and that's the way i feel always felt and probable a minority amongst my colleagues but i look forward to having you in the fold and having i part of san francisco unified school district. >> commissioner wynns and commissioner vice president haney. >> i wanted to see a couple of things point out to my colleagues in case you didn't
4:33 am
know the law must grant no legal way you're personal vote can be constrained you have the perfect legal right to vote any way you're conscious directions on this for you're information but the real thing i wanted to say superintendent carranza i mind can the fifth whereas ♪ resolution be removed the last time we had a charter you made a commitment not a charter resolution without that language in it again >> we actually did chang language. >> what we don't need that at all i thought we agreed to remove that whereas it is not necessary. >> issuing understanding to remove the line it says and that the establishment of charter schools to be encouraged.
4:34 am
>> i thought i asked for it to be completely removed no assessment of that language at all. >> well, i make a motion but it's you're resolution you can remove it. >> you want to say it is before the board i'll make a motion to move we amend by removing that. >> second. >> any discussion on the amendment 80 that has been it's been moved and seconded what was the discussion before that change the language and why we are taking it out. >> nothing in the resolution before us is required by law we can write anything we want at sometime not to distance as far as i know everywhere we've added
4:35 am
a whereas to encourage the creation of charter schools that's not generally, the sense of the board so not absolutely unnecessary and the last time you're correct it was even anymore positive then but we said do question do this and that why not take it out and everybody agreed on that motion. >> commissioner norton. >> i want to speak in favor i heard what i personally don't believe that charts should be on a integral part of educational system so i support the motion. >> any further discussion on the amendment seeing none, roll call vote on the amendment. >> thank you ms. chin mr. totiano ms. fewer mr. haney

4:37 am
believe this is a bit of a broken and awkward process in many ways one that the sate is involved with and imposes things on the dignities and some concerns about the roles of the charts in general but mission prep. >> what you video built together it is inspiring and you have a lot to be proud of those of us who visited the classrooms who talked with the staff i got to talk request dozens of students one-on-one and asking them they're wonderful so i was impressed by what was happenings i know a tremendous amount of harry reid hard work that it took for all of you to build that school the school so i'm going to be supporting the
4:38 am
charter i agree with many of the concerns around the process it puts us in and continue to feel that way but last thing i hope as we bring if this does go forward mission prep as part of sfusd family formally as one of our sponsor charters i hope that opens up an opportunity of clufks to work together and we recognize we're making that commitment i think this is something every time we go through it let's side better those are our children and commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell said and of san francisco we do better when we alcohol beverage and work working closely together and to the parents that were there you have our

4:40 am
the issue that they require additional resources including the monitoring of space and facilities we also in need of additional funding on gotten back to 2007 level of public funding so we hope we can counts be the charter school partners to join us in fighting for additional funding there is a net cost to the district, however, i am persuaded by the mission prep application the petitions for several reasons particularly the demographics serves 85 percent advantageous and english learners this is a group that we want to serve better secondly, mission prep has met the goal achievements and thirdly, financially stable this is what we're always looking for

4:44 am
the implementation of the sfusd family engagement standards and there maybe efforts toward this initiative we're not aware but at this time we're nearly half hour through the school year without a engagement plan without a timeline or adequate resources to support this implementation now we prepared to enter the budgeted circle to the timing of my conversation is key do assure the allocation of resources to support the family engagement in the future budget circle the pack buildings in order for the family engagement to truly be an effective strategy to improve the school compliment and currently, we need a clear vision support to build their capacity and indicators to guide
4:45 am
their work to valid the efforts working well in our schools and expose the areas that need improvement they'll anointment opportunities for support for excluding the families into the decision process building relationships now over the years the pack has heard the echoed concerns they're not alerted early enough when did children are struggling academically not until the report card comes home or when it is too last day to intervene for f that academic example that the highlight for the improved communications for staff it is a partner in their stemmed education now district wide family engagement standard with indicators developed to measure the process and focus
4:46 am
nonprofits and the effect of two-way communication will help to provide the direction to our schools and teachers how to address this type of concern now it is clear that family engagement is a priority last week congress realized the education emphasizing the parents and family engagement and the key roll in supporting the students success additionally sfusd affordability standards and systems from the federal core waiver with the index to the states local control affordability plan to our own balanced scorecards all are progresses that require the family engagement to insure that students are successful we recognize this guess the allocation of human resources and allocation of time and commitment it will require setting the expectations and
4:47 am
cult elevating a cult for families engagement to take root in a systematic way the resources to support the implementation of a strategic plan to upheld the family standards and in a consistent manner cross our district we know that implementing a family engagement plan will not, be quick and easy to do we also know our families will benefit when such a plan is put in place the pack welcomes the opportunity to support the development of the written plan and will work with other communities organizations to make sure that diverse perspectives and other efforts are included in the process

meeting you with this week happening immediately this is very, very important to us if i could suggest once again that respectfully i'll ask we stop talking parents engagement and start talking about parents empowerment engagement is an easy par bar bartow met a student didn't get what they need no school the parents will engage so engagement is a low bar we want our parents to be encountered we want parents to know how to assess the system when they have a grievous or how to put their students on a pathway that is true empowerment
4:51 am

4:55 am

4:58 am
thank you. >> ms. hulk no public comments comments from the board. >> thank you very much president murase i'd like to add two could clauses we can return it back to rules for a revision of that but there are two i think items i'd like to add one that that the notice of residency or investigation in the families primary language and also that students that are families that are victims of no fault evictions can remain at the schools for the school year. >> is that an amendment to the proposal. >> if i can amend that now and defer to come in i'll like to add those two amendments if you that that will require further discussion i'll be happy to to
4:59 am
request this about brought before the rules committee again. >> i see no reason to refer to for additional study on the languages that the notice be given in the primary language and spriep we're not doing that and should do that. >> it actually didn't say that in here and the only hesitation on the second part that members of families who have been victim of no fault evictions now hesitation on this on the verification and whether or not we want to sell out what types of documents to provide evidence you're family has been evicted through no fault of our own. >> anyone if the no fault
5:00 am
education center. >> yeah. someone i couldn't do our director archie presidential come forward. >> good evening president murase superintendmt carranza so the notification is sent to the primary language to the home we would review that and see what the language spoken would be and send that in everyone and spanish and chinese any language we coffer and the second point. >> so we could add the language as requested. >> sure. >> and the second requested amendment was that students who have been families have been evicted through a no fault eviction will be permitted to go remain within the district enrolled in the remainder of the school year my question whether or not you feel that staff needs to have in the board policy the
5:01 am
type of documents necessary to prove that exception. >> i don't believe it needs that in over 5 hundred investigation we've done since 2010 over 87 percent of the families investigated we homeownership's outside of san francisco and number one, the families were in that eviction on 3 families were homeless and those railroad overturned. >> am i hearing not an issue to have that actually in no fault eviction is a legal process so documentation that parents and families could present. >> i i understand that commissioner fewer i'm hearing director saying. >> deputy director lee and
5:02 am
commissioner vice president haney and commissioner norton. >> thank you chairperson wu agency a points of information and innovative under folk to help me if i get that wrong maintenance our current protocol is related to this particular policy and families that are in transitional housing situations they're already exempted from residency based enrollment or disenrollment so the materials that the family receives it stated that if a family is in a transitional housing situation the policy doesn't apply so i believe that a family that is experiencing this is scenario in the eviction proceedings that would apply so i don't see a problem and jump if you see that
5:03 am
differently i don't see it a problem explaining that in the policy i wanted to say for everyone's information that is already consistent with our practices. >> so let's see i have commissioner vice president haney, o'connor and then commissioner walton and commissioner wynns. >> i support both of the points that commissioner fewer brought up and have other others to talk about i don't know. i know we spoke about our options here in terms of sending this to rules and also to student assignment for further discussion i think that is something i'd like to do didn't mean necessarily we don't pass this version or some version potential and come back and look at it further there are actually some questions i have one of the
5:04 am
commissioner fewer's point maybe people that would be evicted not in transition they move to other housing situation in other city and were evicted not considered to be in transition unless at stable housing situation also a difference between if we think that people who are we've investigated that are in other city that own a house that is and those folks are generally not people that have been evicted that's different than proactively to a family that is evicted our allowed to stay in the school you know that there maybe families that assume that he can and leave automatic they're not being in a position to be investigated we'll be proactively in this case saying we want to tell those families they can stay and actually other families we think about them one
5:05 am
of the things to you talk about assignment committee explicit is what some other districts do around that in the advisory committee of the level of changes and challenges around the city what these when we are in a position where our policy is that a student has to leave in the middle of the year potentially what does that mean in terms of the educational impact on this student and family think a policy matter whether we want to take another approach for probably a broader set of families or students i'd like to know what other school districts do and those are things i want to put that out there i hope that my colleagues agree that deserves a further discussion not because of a legal question not vote on this version particularly with the
5:06 am
moving forward and continuing this conversation in the coming months. >> i have commissioner norton and commissioner walton and commissioner wynns and commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell. >> yes. in the advisory committee of what you said commissioner vice president haney i don't have any objection to this at all my comment was going to be keeping you know any logical issues or financial issues south park staff should look at brown-bag we vote i'd like to know the answer it overwhelms that is confident this is not going to have a huge impact is if we can revisit you know additional changes to this policy at another time and continue on tonight, i'm fine with that. >> commissioner walton. >> just want to make a couple of comments and thank you deputy
5:07 am
superintendant my colleagues states that spelling out in writing the policy is helpful for some of the families that does know their rights i know of one incident since i've been on the board i think that providing families with opportunities to advocate for policies is important you do not i don't like the language but absent of an amendment definitely will support as we move forward to come up with a strategy to address some of the concerns again those are students lives we're talking about and families lives and, of course, 100 percent for students of san francisco receiving a quality education but united states nuances that some of our parents that i've heard the parents and students that we fully address
5:08 am
those as well. >> thank you commissioner wynns and then commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell. >> one i want to remind the board that the technical changes are time sensitive have to have in that place by and certain time and want to ask for your information about where the scenario in the regulations does it say we'll provide the material you know we do anything e everything appropriate languages it is great by the do it but the point to be somewhere in writing where is it. >> the initial letter that is sent to families a translated piece of information that states the letter is available. >> that's a communication device i'm talking about our policy of regulations on what basis do you do the language
5:09 am
transmission i understand the way we operate the question do we have to written down. >> not written down an operations based on the home language. >> we wanted to add this to those other policy and want to advocate find make sure it gets in regulation somewhere so none - we've fallen by the wayside not written down the issue of the students who you know housing is unstable is a huge issue we need to address that i think we need to do that in the student assignment committee a big policy issue not before we won't know if we're putting in the right language that's adequate that's my request and refer to the committee and come back and some things and commissioner walton suggested not just technical issues we're talking about here
5:10 am
thank you. >> commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell. >> thank you so i just want to be clear on we're using consistent language how we chaplain our homeless students and i wanted to just to be clear and make sure let me do the health circumstances first, i know we have a provision in here not edited but changed but you know the it seems to me for recently we've having had more health conditions of some sort that where families have been their placement has been jeopardize the parents the children's had to go live somewhere else their conditions are for the conducive i want to
5:11 am
make sure we are vetting those clearly and cleanly we're not making that more difficult for the families we are truly understanding what the circumstances are abag because they have been really did the circumstances we're hearing and to layer that and you're kids have to leave school in two weeks is difficult i want to make sure we're really clear how we handle those cases as well and then the last thing we're thinking about families who are evicted or being supported through the city's city supports that we're working with the city to understand how families there's not a lot of housing stock right now we've placed families coming out of shelters and being evicted and given
5:12 am
assistance with rent or just trying to stabilize their housing is oftentimes in other places in the bay area and so i just want to make sure we're understanding where the city is placing our families to stabilize them we want to stabilize them and if they're working in the city so you would we have provisions we're not saying you know we now know you live in ann antioch if you're willing to do the commute we want you to have the option again because the city had to place them as part of assistance those are dollars it come from our city to support families in difficult situations our city
5:13 am
investing and putting in outside of san francisco time to understand their patterns are thank you. >> so i understand there are two populated changes there appears to be consensus and on the second piece the no fault eviction i've heard to things one that we could vote on it tonight or two have that piece referred to student assignment for more flushing out by staff what is the pleasure of the authority in terms of the no fault considered tonight or in the committee. >> hearing my colleagues may i have please comment on the notice of residency in native
5:14 am
language are you sending the letter with english and saying it available in our native language may i misunderstood. >> the first letter the initial letter it is in english and a notice of transition available on that letter the second letter in the native language the family so the family speaking chinese will be in chinese. >> would that will too much of a harding park to have the first one presented to the family in the primary language. >> it will take time but no, it wouldn't be i'd like to clarify my amendment both the notices have been written in the families primary language and quite frankly i would like to vote on the
5:15 am
eviction piece of it i understand that commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell talked about other displacement issues like the city's other displacements under 9 category it is a category we recognize legally a no fault eviction those students be allowed to remain in their current school for the remainder of the school year if this is not the pleasure of this board i'm open to the suggestion of having it i'm hearing it is not that big of an impact quite frankly the families you've have i got that is something that many, many of our families are facing every day we have it in writing as a policy families know they have protection it is one less thing to worry about of what school their children been going to there is that having had students that lived 40 in
5:16 am
shelters and being evicted and attend so many different schools that is the observation of our child education what they've moved out of san francisco with no fault of their owner or desire that is unduly impacts additionally impacts the families stress about displacement from the board would be agreeable we have it in writing and that families event ethiopian will know they have protection one last thing to worry about the main role to remain they may choose to do a transfer or may choose to enroll their child closer to them but not to give them the positive
5:17 am
affirmation about don't worry about this this is one piece you don't have to worry about welling we will educate our child at the current school of if so a highly requested school just to lend the family additionally stability if new colleagues will agree superintendent but. >> before we move to a vote on the two amendments superintendent carranza. >> president murase yes commissioner fewer i have thoughts we should do bother in the body of language a clear statement of policy i on the board is very, very puncture concessus around the amendment we would like to is it come back to be clear and specific within the body of language all the
5:18 am
additional details it is clear that outlive autos all of us the policy is very, very clear and make sure for those individuals that are watching us on tv may not understand the context why question have this kind of a policy it is very, very important to understand that in a choice system in san francisco when there are non-san francisco residents occupying their feet in highly subscribed schools philosophy stance of board and the administration those seats this should be given to residents of san francisco that's why are we have a policy and making sure we are endorsing and actually looking to make sure that san francisco residents are in those hive spubd schools with that it was not mentioned in the cases
5:19 am
we've rectified four residents fraud the vast majority have not yielded resulted from dishonest folks have been approached where do you live rather than be forthcoming those are the circumstances i don't actually live there, there becomes a process of not very truly full answers i'm ask them the language will help clarify the rights and we're not locking to revoke residency but ask the public please assume the best intentions of the go district if there are circumstances we can account for those circumstances and provided you with an opportunity to stay in our school you have to be honest and present the documents and if you work with us we're absolutely going to work with you so i
5:20 am
would encourage the board my humble opinion to adopt both the thought maximums adds to the policy and staff comes back with additional details that make that more clear. >> thank you mr. superintendent two amendments proposed the first one to send both notification in the primary language it's been moved is there a second on that amendment roll call please yes student delegate. >> i wanted to ask for the over here for the residency it says homelessness is that the same depiction as a families in transition as san francisco unified school district the no child left behind. >> superintendent carranza. >> we have a response for the

5:37 am
one and 5 chinese were allowed to come to the united states so in 1965 that's when we saw a huge influx of chinese speaking students that's why we became the largest chinese you know student body in san francisco at one time 20 percent of population in california was chinese and so there are you have it but spring valley is very unique in that there was a parent named mary tape and probable the chinese name a yip or whatever so ms. hurley what the principal at spring valley and said to the family when we came to immoral no. you dirty chinese can't

6:39 am
culture and climate of the district the same save and support of culture and support of activities in the school are pushed into the after school it is modeled after the wellness and the support component civilian by the scorecard and the schools education we take all of those a different process if you look at briefly part of the driven process is a assessment check list you'll? the colors match the windows and the wleelz on the bus everything we align to color coding has helped in our conversation in the advisory committee self-assessment to mapping the programs by the multiple tier system to see what is happening in each the programs and how it stays with those tiers with a
6:40 am
that information you have in obvious or you're packets a common planning time in august for principals and their after-school programs go together and go through a guided inquiry process that led to the principle part of that that basically creates the quality action plan clap we call it for shorthand excuse me. the goals for each of those 5 areas you saw so all it a intentional process i'll wrap up we have coaches support the sites to do labor pushing to focus on quality and also the big thing that we're all talking about the same language all our measures are tied to the school quality index for this same indicators
6:41 am
and kevin will talk about some of that. >> as we reviewed we're wvptd the x telling sell we want to focus think outside the box the quality and adrc to the student experience we're looking at the core school climbing and culture surveys and trying to looking at want gpa and other programs and reading scores results for the parents student surveys we've found that excel participation remember excel that the sfusd branded name for the office what? standard and excellence i'm sorry to put on the spot i - there's days of schools and actionism reduction in rates a

6:43 am

6:44 am

6:45 am
transitioned we're almost wrapping up so scomplibz here's our data i know you have since last time in april of 2014 when we reported back we wanted to share the numbers of after school 26 thousand 58 students enrolled in k 5 and three hundred that's the enrollments enrollment numbers are increased of those three hundred and 78 more students enrolled if after-school programs since april of 2014 okay decrease three hundred and three students not enrolled three hundred and 25 less
6:46 am
students not enrolled one and 21 more students three hundred more students in offsite programs and 20 fewer schools with waiting lists reinforcing those are reduced the total fiscal year funding this is over $7.20 century and dcyf match seeing the number not clearly 16 thousand 079 so $16,000,719,000,000 that's the overall budget marry melanie. >> great on the other tasks we talked about the comprehensive guidelines the central online
6:47 am
there are preliminary conversations with the technology plans for being put in place those conversations we folded into that the comprehensive information source currently as part of our children and families initiative that is a required to have a comprehensive services inadvertent folding that into the conversation and pilot some kind of services in the spring of 2016 the equalityable copayment the combination of school district and on the community-based organizations we met with them 6 times to talk about ways to think about an equitable copayment to see how you will do
6:48 am
sorry - how you will determine the latin-american scale where it falls on the sliding scale and in the preparation of making decisions with the team and the start time is an opening conversation about school start and high school and elementary school and middle school we're actually ending up doing a lot of work with consolidating the program i think el dorado middle school and we've gone working on a case by case basis and learning a lot about what that means to go from a school maybe two or three separate programs to trying to merger and consolidate and bring in all the schools and learn look what that means for custodial so i think
6:49 am
those two experiences will form a lot of work going forward. >> we conclude. >> thank you seeing and hearing no questions commissioner wynns. >> commissioner wynns. >> thank you so much and for all the incredible work you've been doing i'm so happy but i have a few questions the first, it one of the things it doesn't have progress here on is the xhoeflt into one provider at every school can you give me an update. >> yeah. we're looking at real on a case by case basis the
6:50 am
condolence is complex because of a number of schools you have programs that maybe excel exempt if the stated requirements and a licensed requirements a lot of complications and you may ended up with one provider at the school that has a be a slow process for families they feel developed if we pick one over the other each group of parents is connected to that that program and creates a lot of anxiety so it has been a/process at each school evolves in a different way looking at el dorado middle school and doing that at sunnyside to learn more. >> i kind of like to be for us all to get an update don't tell
6:51 am
you what was happening in each school if everyone wants to that that great. >> how many schools are reduced - >> how and i'd like tool have some if you could give us some sense what you said is important i'd like to know will it take 10 years how many schools where are we not school by school how it is going in part we've discussed that might want times that you described social economic and racial segregation that is unacceptable and part of the idea of doing that we were trying to make after school available to everyone and also as you said much anymore
6:52 am
integral part of school and the minority providers situation we have in my objection i experienced didn't do that and i'm also are we down to the providers excuse me. have two nobody has more than two anywhere. >> in many of the schools one or two still pta and other programs percentage take a way allow parents to packing pick one day and change one hour in simply drop in on a larger level that is impossible to staff the program you have people you're offering 5 hours a week and not find the people that is complex because the people are tied to the enrichment program if the
6:53 am
way it is developed so it takes a lot of conversations at the school base level otherwise they become more dwefs we are trying to merger the proms and understand this it is not a recommendation from you i don't object if people want to have the enrichment my choice they will xhutsd in the school plan we say that is not really an after-school program or it is an after-school program so i'd like to you give us some recommendations about that eventual and if i may i want to say i appreciate how much work is gone into the qualities work i was hoping for at least i think i was hoping for an
6:54 am
increase in the number of paternities i'd like four to comment about it now but sometime in the future soon tell me wag you think how long to get to the goals we have had and the goals he understand those systemic goals you're giving process today, we actually have angle ability to provide the there's capacity i think so they're not separate but like to have a sense how much that is holding up i'm i delutsdz or overly optimistic i want to talk about one other thing that is about the funds because i do - i think - i want to urge the staff i i know that is the third rail
6:55 am
changing start times of school is the reason we have all the dcyf money going to do bridge times instead of serving for kids of this is tough in my opinion we have put off for years and years the other thing not their deal a lot of pursue to have the start minds for high school i hope that is being folded into that discussion and get a report but also i have again, a discussion with mistake with the after-school programs and talked about what we can gordo about talking about the state rules that require us to have all that bridge funding foreign the half an hour we
6:56 am
shou pursue no. your not delutsdz i want to say something we will provide you with the timeline for some of the numbers what we can anticipate those increasing to i don't think that is a problem at all we can do that. >> i mean a lot of that progress has been made it is some stems people are getting the message and have their own timelines so there as we speak right now several schools in the process you'll start to see those numbers increase and the other is that with the funds again, you mentions meanwhile meeting with michael you had a request about funding. >> no, i wanted to have it
6:57 am
said here a lot of the dcyf funding we spend which the city has commented to spends is used no to increase the capacity but fund the times between the closings of our early start schools and the follows up for the states rules other after school funds that doesn't allow to 3 o'clock if we could free up the money from most of it from providing that bridge time we could serve a lot for kids some of it is it fretted up if we change the start time and freeing up like changing the regulations. >> i have commissioner walton
6:58 am
and commissioner norton before you there is a couple members of the public any public comment on this item? okay seeing none, commissioner walton then commissioner norton >> thank you president murase and tb thank you for this animated presentation a couple of things the self-assessments for excel programs or all the programs in the district utilizing this. >> right now the "x" sell programs all the other programs could use them but something we can suggest and make that available whether or not they need them we have not gotten to look at all the programs and look at the resources but something that can be available for all the programs.
6:59 am
>> you can look at any school program online. >> thank you then a ses is a what. >> an after school enrichment and safety a proposition 49 that passed in the 80s but funds k through 8 and the 21st century is k through 12. >> and then last i'd like to see higher margins of increases in some of the percentages increase is always great i appreciate the hard work and looking forward to seeing the increases thank you. >> i do want to mention one
7:00 am
thing a couple years ago we lost the high school funding not to guaranteed thing just because we apply we don't get it we have a higher percentage with after-school programs a large number of grants we're under a good place but want to remind us not to take that for greeted not guaranteed. >> commissioner norton. >> i just don't think i understand it as far as an arrangement between other different programs i mean it used to be there were we had funding we cracked with cbos like the yuma walk through or between the district neighborhoods to administer a program for us, and organizations that parents had completely set up as nonprofits
7:01 am
to provide the services is that still the case and how many sites where there is 2 programs operating. >> i don't know exactly at high schools there are none it is more me elementary level tiling i'll get it to you before the funding is it available. >> i remember not super long ago when new kids were in elementary school their elementary had 3 programs operating one was a through the richmond ymca the other one introduce the richmond's district be neighborhood self-center and i would be interested in thinks how many schools are still in that kind of situations and you know the
7:02 am
issue of capacity in building capacity that was really i understand the intent behind that; right? to have so that - i mean, i approached opinion it is true in middle a sort of a different situation particularly in families in elementary school i want every family in whatever school to have after school capacity with the sliding scale bans their income level i want to understand how far away from that vision it may take us years but where are we in terms of capacity to serve as many families at many of the elementary school in particular that point the service because i hear complaints from families that is a well, you know, i went through the enrollment process and didn't
7:03 am
get any thirds choice school except inform after-school program and i hear that i don't want after-school programs that needed a reality not a barrier to families navigating our overall school find that works for them. >> eventually we're going to have a time when we say you know make the spaces and the waiting list is gone we'll have to say this is when it is going to maple we're working this in but have to let the schools know you're working towards this we have this resolution we have totem this will happen that is coming not going to drop down if date tomorrow work with them and
7:04 am
take some time to bring two programs into one or 3 into one and not leaving it up to the principal melanie had 5 meetings we're not doing this and doing this now it will take time but set a deadline no point waiting list and making sacrifice at the schools the conversation with the teachers we need to condense the classrooms defense a process we said, yes this has to happen but haven't said you know you - work this in and so work towards marking that happen and give the teachers enough warning so at the end of the school year that will have to be soon i can't imagine here i'm stick my neck
7:05 am
on a limb but i said it. >> no, that's really i am not that would be helpful if you wanted to add is that. >> i wanted to remind you when we did our estimates at a point and price tag and implementing co-payments cancel making sure the resources are available because a lot of issues with that i think that is the first thing we need to have many place without the resources we can't extend the programs we need to make sure the sliding scale works and the information and the ability to collect the actual fees. >> i understand obviously said is to happen soon but can't see
7:06 am
us getting part of the 2016-2017 you hear our pushing but let's do that right i've heard a lot about the issues and el dorado middle school some of those things take time a lot of the programs that parents started and are impressed and it does take time and worth doing it right certainly expanding something we don't have the resources to maintain is not what we want to do i appreciate the care and it takes time so i get that but i also want to say i want to commend you on the process there's a lot of progress and i think the quality work is really important so you know, i just think you've done great work and excited to see how far we've come.
7:07 am
>> commissioner wynns. >> i have one more thing i wanted to know part of idea to make that for having seen for parents we're trying to more after school sites people are pushing back i understand that but the idea our systemic capacitate building will be offsite after-school programs to migrate into the school sites i'm concerned three hundred more kids with going to the after-school programs. >> it is a little bit complicated we're not absolutely confident the number we gave you last time so we could have been a decrease for what i know in the numbers we have but i'm not confident so. >> it is hard to know what is going to after school offsite
