others 72 percent of the children quality for reduced lunch 76 percent of children receive special education and 38 that speak other than english at home and fosters parents themselves are providers work with students in foster care we're share a few of the finding we had that comes to a larger report we provided to the our children, our council at&t's on the website and listed on the pat website once in spanish and chinese. >> (speaking foreign language.)

8:03 am
children. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> paternities emphasis the need for greater support for parents to advocate for their children especially those who are new arrivals to the country and being able to navigate the i e p process for those who have limited literacy skills or children's that are falling through the cracks.
8:04 am
>> (speaking foreign language.) >> they requested for support for their children's needs and basically a well-rounded education that include the arts and music and stem program both in and out of school. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> in nearly each conversation the behavorial issues were a concern within the classroom. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> for example, the so moan
8:05 am
don't have an education they feel their children are passed over or fall through the cracks. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> the parents of newcomer students felt disoriented in trying to interact in the transition that their children are going through and felt disconnected within that school community. >> so another thing we've heard in numerous conversations concerns about transportation and parents emphasized the fact that transportation impacts the students attendance and school
8:06 am
choice and access to after-school programs and felt their transportation impacted their children's ability to participate in after-school programs and sports and that had an impact on their students ability to connect with the community an issue of safety two or more school families with children of disability wanted more support on the school buses to and from school.
8:07 am
>> (speaking foreign language.) >> work force and development plans and paternity identified for skill development program for both youth and adults so that if this way they'll have greater opportunities. >> (speaking foreign language. >>n >> many highlighted the need for more student internships that is local technical compani companies. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> african-american apartment in the bayview voice their
8:08 am
frustration their children are not benefiting from the interims and jobs with technically companies growing in their own backyard. >> the other thing we've heard was access to technology and the internet many patients highlight the fact not a universal access to computers or the internet and how this impacts their students ability to extensively complete their assignment and projects and wonder how this might impact their assessments on the new computerized system they also talked about not all schools are computer labs or adequate computer onsite for the same reasons not being able to have adequate access to prepare for
8:09 am
their projects and assignment and parents talked about i think vertically included from school and digital communication as a result of the compute assess. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> recognized bans what we're heard quality school quality
8:10 am
engaged and connected students places the teacher in under performing schools and lower the class size for the meeting of students needs and providing the teacher see with support in classroom management. >> okay. >> okay.
8:11 am
>> (speaking foreign language.) >> increase the port for discipline and behavorial issues no schools help the newcomers students and in their families understand the u.s. culture and navigate the agricultural system and provide the support as they transition into larger schools and expand the workforce programs improve the supports for the asian pacific islanders students to prevent them from failing through the cracks are you. >> the recommendation of transportation families like the board and district to revisit impact transportation service has on student attendance and engagement to determine whether there is it warrant increasing
8:12 am
the transportation services also, they suggest it providing central drop off and pick up zones for district schools and they'd like to see the transportation to insure school stability. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> internship workforce sediment and employment the recommendation is to increase the number of summer jobs interning and workforce development programs available to youth. >> so regarding the access to
8:13 am
technology and internet families ask that the district help them seeing greater access to use of computers to help bridge the digital divide and irregular the tech companies to provide for internship and even quote adopt a school or two unquote and create for mentoringship and support the transfer for folds for foster youth to increase expedite the report system for the classes using the schools we know that the district is doing a lot of actions to address many of the concerns raised in the report and many of them are not new at the same time, we feel there is needed to be a level of responsiveness to acknowledge that families have been heard as
8:14 am
noted from one parent's from the african-american community we want to prove we've been heard many parents participated with the hope there is empower outcomes for the children and families and we pack feels a responsibility without communicating with how their input has an impact and increasing the outcomes for the students and families and to that end we really this is one of the key pieces of the community engagement to be able to circle back and let people know how their input made a difference to this end the pack wants to partner with the district make sure we create the chaunlz of communication where the families had a policy change and complete the actions that as a result of what they share in taking their time to come to
8:15 am
give input to to the decisions especially we're enter into the whole budget process to think about what they've shared and what their identifying as the areas we'll be looking at with additional support we're interested in coming up with something we can circle back to folks and let them know what is happening and this transparent to increase that accountability. >> i saw ms. fewer and simulating. >> it's your fault. >> so i really want to thank the pack this is fabulous work it is really, really good work i'm astounded the population you
8:16 am
interviewed that you got so many parents to talk honestly and openly about their experience i think also the idea that was we're in entirely in the parents primary language is not what we do often and we know that is the best practice and know that is important to get real true honest feedback so i want to say also that the majority of participant their african-american and latino their fabulous and also that you engaged the asian pacific islanders community should be commended i want to say thank you and i think this is such this information you're bringing to us today and tonight is so important and really, really valuable so i want to comment on a few things one is that i think that
8:17 am
talking about salmmoan populati it is smaller population hello, however, it is a very population that needs to be looked at and to be actually called out so i'm going to recommend when we are doing our analysis around our achievement gap or achievement we definitely i've seen we used to track the achievement of ooulder children and in the reports i've not seen it i'll request we formally look at it how they keep an eye on on the population to see how well, they're doing and also not a lot of islander staff statistics 60
8:18 am
percent of samoan kids are raised by their grandparents i be understand loud and clear about the gap in the committee i asked the specific question i asked what is the disparity continue what school hazard ipads and computers and schools that don't and give us a number because we know that actually a lot of our families to they have this not a laptop or a device like this this is what the students were take on; right? their b be at disadvantaged definitely i saw something that was wonderful at the chinese-american ymca i saw a
8:19 am
group of about was it about maybe about looks like thirty parents going for computer class and it was fabulous and it was conducted in their native language with ipads just as their children in the elementary and this was a fabulous thing i want to duplicate that you're absolutely right for the communication with their parents and we go more digital to log onto get fox about the success and lack of success our patent need the access to assess the information you're absolutely right the transportation issue is a huge one i like the ideas of shuttle and love the idea of providing a pickup truck and drop off zones i do think our choice system is a flailed we're
8:20 am
not given equal access if you have resources you have choice but no resources very little choice in particular for those parents you've interviewed is a really important aspect you bring up about the lack of transportation really for the choices you have for our own children but absolutely then i think it is really so the pack has brought to us original equality report and well done i think there absolutely right they've demonstrated in some way they've been heard and what are we're going to do about it i'll open to the colleagues about ideas how we can more than that and the superintendant and deputy superintendant how to incorporate some of the recommendations we have a document that actually has great
8:21 am
thifth so colleagues what's our idea who to incorporate those recommendations and what we've heard here tonight. >> are you asking how to incorporate into the oc f document. >> really what the pack is looking for some sort of system change; is that correct is not just an explicit report but they note that they have presented many reports so what is the impact i think of what they've presented to us today and there is such value this snapshot of the conversations i think give us a real true voice about what parents are feeling and how we can often not hear from what do
8:22 am
you sawing well, we'll have commissioner norton and commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell. >> i wanted to ask another question i'll wait for the we are to commissioner fewers question. >> thank you. i agree? an amazing document and appreciate all the effort in reaching out to the families this submitted i presume into lauery and jennifer from oc i f this is a much large document with finding that pardon or pertain to housing and outside the things not necessarily related to the district what we included was the work of the district that impacts student learn and access to opportunity but the leaguer report is on the website i sent in yesterday ahead of time a
8:23 am
larger document but, yeah dr. has it on the so for the framework 13 of our department heads on the school district sat on the board and into the framework that is crafted gone out to the community and survey information based on all this information that's being devised and going to the council on the 28 for review and for vote so this framework will actually help to set the tone for the 5 year plan in july and that will be utilized to help us determine how allocations for fund can go out so i think all the departments head have been part
8:24 am
of council and been briefed on the 69 page document or, however, 62 is laura in the audience 62 pages this is what it is going from it was great you presented it here that's an opportunity for all the folks to hear so as we're going to the framework you guys can you all can pull out the pieces of that are critical to the framework and be sure those are plugged in whether measurements or, however, you want to frame them this is helpful so this is it will all of this information commissioner fewer will get incorporated into the framework. >> can i suggest that we each
8:25 am
of us who are a committee head of whatever committee we take one of those topics and we agendize it and let the pack know we'll be discussing it i know that you know i'm the chair of the labor committee meeting i'll look at a topic of whether the themes and let you know what if so on the committee so we'll thoroughly discuss it i'll suggest the budget committee and the and billings and grounldz take up those concerns and deeper dive into a solution what do you think colleagues? commissioner norton and commissioner wynns >> so i have some thoughts about what i suggested i wanted
8:26 am
to ask actually, i was really and he completely agree doing an amazing job reaching the families hard to reach and a we struggle to communicate with the recommendation about developing our condominium conversion that is something i've been interested in for a long time i'm wondering what that looks like or you had confuses with staff about what that modesty look like if you haven't i'd like to explore that because we sit up here and the day it is hard to hear so often families saying we never heard that we don't know about that feeling are disconnected and not having the information about the work of district i feel that is a
8:27 am
game-changer for us if we engage more the families and engage the families how they can be involved and how to find out more and we're good a reaching some families but need more strategies i don't know if you have any strategies or talk about that later. >> i'll invite you to come to the pack members above heard consistent that the communications that families don't get enough communication and channels though how to get the information and the communicate with the district about various initiatives happening it is clear there's need to be a structure to facilitate that communication and it is amazing i get you know, i have the privilege and
8:28 am
access to hear about things take place their fantastic bull families don't know about them and not necessarily seeing the changes not equivalent on the ground there are responses to the concerns their raising but don't know their efforts put forward so change takes time and in the meanwhile to be aware those things are take place so offline we sit down and talk about what that might look like and . >> so respond to the suggestion it is a great suggestion to dig deeper i'll maybe kick it back to the leadership to talk about what to talk about those topics a number of them are more they don't fit like they don't fit in a particular committee or two committees depending on how you
8:29 am
talk about them maybe in the topic for some but dig deeper into the thoughts and recommendation are important but i think the way to do that i'll defer to the issue that superintendent wanted to get do you still maybe speak to some of our comments and commissioner wynns. >> great, thank you wanting hastening i want to thank the pack for the engagement. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> it is greatly articulated what you presented we appreciate that i also want to join commissioner fewer and recognition we have you have been able to engage voices of community that not always are affirmed i appreciate that as well. to the questions that have been asked how this will be used we
8:30 am
actually talked about as part of our budget development process and part of el cap we'll be communicating back out to the constituencies around the suggestions made and some of the ideas expressed we want to clearly keep this kind of input what the input from the various stakeholders groups xhugsd how students at another lens which we'll process the budget recommendations this year one of the things i think we should be proud of if san francisco is that for a number of years we've done is keep the equality at a lens for the budget allocation in the darkest times of the district we've always readily peaked we've keep kept the fund where their needed the most and we now we have an
8:31 am
opportunity to actually add robust programming we want to make sure it is going to where we feel the community needs it the most and the second thing to mention quickly we have a tradition in our school district of having to decentralized approach to funding we have absolutely hold ourselves accountable at the district level but the parents to be paternity in their school relapse many of the decisions are made around the expenditure of funds are made at the school site level as i see the recommendations here those are things that should be robustly articulated in the balanced scorecards at the schools it is also a great place to make sure that what you have articulated a absolutely big deal being seen in the balance scorecards at the
8:32 am
school site levels that's in my second recommendation and dr. carr in a taught me 3 the third thing this is really for us the board and senior leadership some of the things that are being asked for i'll i want to put that out there for example, access to technology and internet absolutely correct there is a digital divide in san francisco in san francisco mind you a digital divide homes that don't have access to internet i'll bring forward to partner with an organization that gives very, very discounted rates to have collection this their homes no one else is oh, the program this whether follow with our anti commercialization policy noefrj is offering we need to do something to connect our parents
8:33 am
right now as we talk about the policy issues and make those decisions parents and kids in homes in san francisco that don't have the basic connection activated activity if we are looking at vision 2025 it is important they have the tools to be able to do it i'll challenge us to look at the equality lens around some the provision for the potential solutions for what our parents have brought to us in a articulate way thank you very much for what you've done >> science and president walton. >> thank you for the work it is extreme helpful i had a few things to bring up and one is what the superintendent discussed because we've had a
8:34 am
lot of discussion in the past about facilitating access for parents providing devices, etc. and so i was going to ask if we could have an update on the efforts how they work and other things like the superintendents referred we might need to make that more comprehendible or effective at all and this is the first thing although the second the first one is transportation because we've mentioned it several times in our discussions about assignment we've not examined the issue of whether you know when we cut back a lot in the transportation as part of our bickering budget cuts but part of the redesign the
8:35 am
transportation one of the things we've found a lot of transportation providing was kind of the know of helping our assess equality we were providing transportation for middle-income families and we couldn't afford so we kit just get rid of of the general ed transportation which maybe didn't have such a big ferry building effect on the lives of middle-income families but highly challenged families we've asked a few minutes and not gotten to that i'm hoping this is a impetus to do this is important we follow through and many of the other things mentioned i'd like to see how they what happened in the city's plan where we need to fold those into our own policy discussions
8:36 am
like like the two things we were aligned and have for a long time thought we needed to follow up on the implementation things i hope we can kind of breakdown and get a feedback and report from the staff about how we're responding to all of these things. >> thank you again. >> president walton. >> thank you commissioner vice president haney definitely thank you to the pack for our focus work i love the fact we're hearing from families to focus on equality and internships to internet i love the feedback about careers and opportunities particularly families that are surrounding prosperity and also want to commend the families for working together and being inclusive in terms of the communication with the families i want to guarantee that you'll
8:37 am
see is continue work and more support focusing on foster youth as well as a lot of the students in the district that are suffer from the gases that in the district and one the answers to provide to commissioner fewer one is that we'll definitely have a report and curriculum program about african-american initiative what is going on and take place they've hired a great person to work with the families in the district for years i know she'll do a wonderful job in this work i'm excited but one the things the superintendent go said we're pay attention is the fact that we in terms of how we prioritize our resources in the budget circle and put the dollars to impact the work but
8:38 am
aside from the resources allocation how we spend how time aside from being this this room so are we listening to parents and one of the things that needs to happen to the educators are we working with the leadership and spending time learning what is happening in our district and improvements need to be at the grassroots level so we'll be prioritizing a lot of what you see and pushing for that to be a priority to make an impact but thank you for coming in today and doing the work and working together with a larger group thank you. >> commission. >> thank you. i want to acknowledge the tremendous amount of work going down to a 4 page document i understand many, many meetings and quite a bit of
8:39 am
cooperation i support of suggestions of any colleagues how to segregate this on an ongoing basis i want to share responses to it so in terms of celebrity connectivity i've done with work the african-american programs this offers $10 a month internet for people that quality for reduced lunch and the superintendent will offer additional information about that, and, secondly, on workforce development programs i know commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell can be a resource the city as many many programs for workforce development and we should talk about the best way to get that information out to families that might took advantage of and i love the idea of central pick up and drop off zones i like that
8:40 am
in terms of transportation that is worthy exploring additional in terms of summer jobs the city departments are asked to project a number of positions to summer jobs plus website is europe and running in a couple of months a central clearing house for summer jobs and interning and mayor ed lee has made a huge commitment over 7 thousand positions for youth and again commissioner mendosa-mcdonnell a resource on that and finally on the idea of adopting the schools i wanted to make folks aware that the san francisco education fund as rolled out circling the schools they've put care into match companies with individual schools and seen tremendous contributions hopefully in that
8:41 am
relationship, however, they haven't gotten to all the schools only about half under half of the schools that are adopted so there is additional work that needs to be done and i know that laura moran and anthony gary's have a lot of information about the schools and so i wanted to give you that immediate reaction but thank you for this tremendous work. >> any other comments from the board seen i also wanted to share my gratitude and appreciation for this i think in terms of how folks participated in this saw the impact i hope that was demonstrated tonight to effected the commissioners and how much we will continue to use this report as a guide as we go through the budget process and think about our priorities over the years i hope this is
8:42 am
something that we see again and again in the coming months we know we can bring up and let's look back at the report we received and see what we're adopting whether a budget or policy is reflected in this thing i think this is will be a part of how we see the impact of it i also agree specific things we should either hear in committee or deeper diveer he agree that transportation is important we started to talk about we need to dive in with a lens it is reflected here i also think this is some and wanting walton some specific pieces around foster youth i'd like to see us bring that conversation to our committee and have a deeper look at the recommendations that relate to the foster youth i think this as group of our
8:43 am
students we don't always talk about in terms of meeting their needs i hope that if there are any tech companies that are listening i think there's a theme that comes up a lot if this report this is profound there is a lot of innovation and process and economic opportunity that took place in our city mclaren park technologies that are not shared with the large group of the part of our city and families and students in our continentals in particular i hope we take that as a mandate as the leadership of the city in our own leadership to continue to push on that and do a lot more thank you for this i know it is going to be an ongoing conversation i hope you'll tells you what we need to do to hold
8:44 am
ourselves accountable to everyone that participated in this and be doing everything we can if we're not doing enough you'll remind us i know you will thank you for your work appreciate it. >> all right. so the next is public comment on content items i have none signed up item g the consent calendar do we have a motion and second and second air quality any items withdrawn or corrected by the superintendant. >> yes. carmen we have a few underbuilding go down and services on page 202 in the description changes the rules to gordon elementary school under the k items on page 276 credit
8:45 am
in amount excuse me. should be a credit amount in brackets thus 26 hundred plus and k-27 the original and amended dates of service the ending should reflect 2016 not 2015 one 51 on page 314 to the name of consultant delete the wrptd to the education services d.b.a. learning center. >> all right. thank you. >> any items removed for first reading by the board? any items severed by the board and superintendent for vote nun roll call vote will take place under section o item h proposals nun and i board members proposals nun and public
8:46 am
comment on general matters i still think this is the first none >> wow. >> is it something i did wrong or people afraid of me or (laughter) don't get used to it something tells me it will not happen like this ever night so no public comment on general matters how about that that is a first item k special order of business i now call for another motion and second on the review and adoption of annual and 5 year report to the election and expenditure of developer fees. >> so moved. >> second. >> and we don't have any speakers i believe that mr. gotten will read the recommendation into the record. >> good evening commissioners i'll david the chief facilitates
8:47 am
officer first, i too want to congratulate president hastening and vice president walton and congratulate emily murase for a wonderful year of services and certainly together was president obama my wife texted me gave quite a speech too this is an annual event the review and adoption of the one in 5 year developer fee report it is basically required by the government and education codes for the district to make zabl to the public ifthdz relative to
8:48 am
the collection of developer impact fees as a condition of collecting such fees i want to read the requested action and give you a brief summary of the report the requested action together is that the board of education of the san francisco unified school district review and adopt the developer impact fee annuity year report for the fiscal year ending june 30, 2015, the report dated december 8, 2015, and given to you basically under separate coffer relates to the collection and expenditure of developer fees that was prepared for the district by the consultant with expertise in preparation of such reports i have mr. laurie from the group and briefly i want to remind that you last year, we
8:49 am
commissioned it the group to do a developer fee justification study at the end of this study the board of education reviewed the report which termed determined we were allowed to increase our commercial and residential rates to the highest amount loud by allow this report didn't reflect not effect those rates they didn't go into effect in july and so the report is based on the old rates but this year, the election collection of rates for example, under residential is $3 and plus square feet and given the active and aggressive market in san francisco this is a really positive thing for us so we had a really good year as developer fee collection go last year, we collected about
8:50 am
$8.4 million of developer impact fees that will go to offset the impacts of growth within the district you may remember during the revision in 2008, 4 we collected a million dollars and a half and maybe in the highest $9 million so the trending seems to be positive we'll be collecting certainly on the residential side fairly reasonable rates for the next few years a positive indication for us so we collected $8.4 million and made 200 and $50,000 in interest and a security balance in the account of $35.9 million one of the things the report does not talk about are candidates made on the funds we have a high
8:51 am
balance $9 million sits in the one 35 van ness reserve fund a restricted fund about $8 million is going for the construction of new classroom this and 2 and a half dedicated to the building and $57 million is already allocated to other projects for growth and early learning special ed and the deaf and hard of hearing and programs that are requiring immediate expenditures so down the road the 5 year report indicates those funds are expected to be used to augment future funding for the potential of new schools both at motorbike, commented and the shipyard and potentially for the morris auditorium so there is a wide range of projects that we
8:52 am
have the potential to allocate those funds for so with that, i will that's the ends of my report my colleague is here so thank you very much. >> thank you for the summary i want to make sure i'm reading is correctly i appreciate lowell and the $9 million if i said to go through and see all the funds committed what would i look at table 5 to see which projects are noted as fund available and go back and add up the amount of table four. >> yes and no table 5 it the list of projects we potentially
8:53 am
could fund the pc we're spebt to the world and state we have a need to collect fees we have to have a reason to assess the developers we actually have growth whether all the projects are funded by developer fees or bond funds we've listed all the funds if you want to specific accounting of how projects i'll have to provide that. >> could you provide that, please thank you. >> commissioner wynns and commissioner fewer. >> could you - so i want to ask you a question about some the projects listed as school expansions do we replace the portable
8:54 am
buildings with classrooms. >> yes. we have effected the developer fees to replace over one hundred modular buildings. >> where you have this where that says 6 classroom building and later it says elementary school expansion the difference is that the difference is about to be done. >> correct. >> and the money is allocated already the things that we catalystries are the same thing but not designated that is what we want to do in the future. >> and in almost every case at sunny side and lowell if we're replacing 10 mod last year's we're building over 12 mod last year's building the building with 14 classrooms or 8 because
8:55 am
a actual expansion. >> - >> we have pragmatic needs with special needs and early learning with the programs require us to have the spaces. >> since i mentioned this this is the new funds we use to build the new buildings at sunset. >> no monroe. >> that was a great one thank you. >> commissioner fewer. >> yes. so mr. golgd if i heard you right we could use the money towards new school construction mission bay. >> we could commit all but that which is allocated for the one 35 haven the restricted fund those funds can be used for any
8:56 am
growth in the district this is solely and inclusively new schools. >> so the money for the arts at one 35 phase one e van ness this fund is before in a bond; is that correct you collected those fees or only deliverable fees. >> a convoluted history but collected money that was is designated in a restrictive fund for the reserve fund and has been for a number of years and designated in a restricted manner solely to be used at the one 35 van ness site. >> okay at the one 35 van ness at any rate site not necessarily at the school but at the one 35 van ness site. >> okay. that's a distinct clarification thank you very much so how would we go about
8:57 am
assessing the rest of the funds to the new school construction like mission bay. >> it is a question of deciding the funding sources for each school whether typically most of our new school constructions have been a composite and a funding from multiple sources how we fund betsey carmichael and dianne feinstein and willie brown, jr. was fund out go bonds so if a 2016 bond measure a lot of money to fund the new school construction at places we'll
8:58 am
assume growth this is potentially in the bayview and mission bay these funds the developer fee funds by themselves is insufficient. >> right. >> to fund multiple schools and we actually have many other projects that are small in nature this funding source is a valuable way to do things for the early learning they have growth school sites u sites this is a fund i can tap into i would be redundant to put that into one bucket i'm anticipating and telling people i'm expecting we'll be funding new construction for multiple school buckets including in the statewide facility bonds passed in november we'll go over he
8:59 am
whatever is available. >> so nothing prohibits us from using the money it is convenient to have the fund to draw if for smaller projects no funding for; is that correct. >> correct. >> it is clear it is sort of would be up to the board will use of those funds and we would look at the other funds we have so we don't have a lot of funding for the little jobs i'm hearing is that a go bond; is that correct. >> the state is more if i didn't the governor is tomato not supporting but, yes we're looking primarily to fund the construction of new schools through local go bonds if the residential market continues to be strong we continue to collect $8 million a
9:00 am
year i think there is a potential to fund an augment funding at a number of the new construction school sites up to the board for facilities to present a fund scheme and program so the board can decide that's the way to go. >> okay. thank you very much i appreciate that. >> comments or questions from the board? >> superintendant. >> i'm sorry, i have one more clarification you said the rates we adopted go into - the developers if start paying the new rates until july one ever 2015 in the report it said we made that change in 2013 i'm wondering is that - >> yes. >> we did it twice. >> yes. in fact, if the gentleman it is rather an
9:01 am
expensive and lengthy process to do the justification study i don't think we want to do it to raise the fees $0.05 but this year we're allowed to raise it significantly again, because we go through the experience and prove we have enough demand so we did it in 2013 in 2015 and we need to be careful because developers and cupboards to san francisco are paying a heavy fee across the board which our piece is very small if you look at the total amount of fees at any one project we're all part of same team and be mindful of what is going on in the industry wide basis but so for we're collecting $0.30 per square
9:02 am
feet. >> what is the down side i mean, you you said that cost a lot of money to go the report but what's the less say we raise them again this year we decide we can justify it what happens if you raise the fees taken the economy tanks or i know do they come back and say you can't do those fees do other justification study how do they push back. >> if the - when the economy tanked in 2009, 2008 did entire world grasped the big short in the movie to learn how this happened the rates didn't dial back the developers didn't move forward with the projects and not only not pay our fees they

9:19 am
discussion going earlier than it has been in the past and to have it be more transparent than in the past because board members have complained that you know budgeted priorities appeared after a commission said oh, i think we should fund it with the confusion with staff the idea was to collect some ideas early on and have the staff think about and incorporate them into sort of a larger list of priorities and do analysis about ongoing work and what resources that ongoing work with consume so superintendent got ideas around the high schooly design around you know additional investment that some of us think we should make in the common core curriculum we

9:31 am
so we all have our own projects and if you see less and less public comment here given it is less and less experts from the community i can mention a few like steve lawrence and john and another passed away and dr. espanola jackson who is not doing well very sick it is because somewhere along the line we don't have the proper kind of dialogue and so if you don't have the proper type of dialogue and the so-called experts think they know is it all what is going to happen is there's going to be a big divide and chases going to happen lack
9:32 am
of transparency and other we already see it we rarely don't know what is happening in mountain tunnel we really don't know at eir ton town and lake merced we really do not know what is happening with the $2.6 billion investers proper dialogue and through are changes happening so quickly at 18 hundred oakdale it is unbelievable the nurses will be moved away and pate money and moved away the contracting center will go to another place that is fine they have a long lease what about dialogue with the community? so we're not going to come here
9:33 am
and waste our time we can watch it on tv it enboldz us to write about the assets that is what's going to happen >> thank you, paul please. >> good afternoon i'm paula former puc employee operations manager for the system and projection for wsip until i retired a few years ago i'm here to make a request regarding part of the infrastructure and it is related to the bay town that was recently completed we conceived the bay tunnel to replace the pipelines are a
9:34 am
seismically related pipe and put in something that can be maintained they're related to in the don edwards wildlife refuge are not maintained because of the lack of access roads because of the salt company removed the access road so the tunnel is now in serve we've capped and abandoned the two lines 5 miles of surface pipelines and lady paint by steering wheels we've abandoned them, no the don edwards wildlife refuge we've talked with don edwards i've
9:35 am
taken part in the meetings we removed the pipes and the cover sheet that i've handed you explaining the way to remove the pipe there is the lowest price is the most valuable but the project component early on to save money i understand why cost savings are one of the most important goals but a bait-and-switch it is important for us to step forward and remove those pipes from the wildlife refuge the money is baselineed from the project the remain money is probable not enough nearly enough to remove the pipes i'm requesting the commission and instruct staff to start the process of removing the pipes i'll be happy to
9:36 am
answer any questions you may have. >> >> may i ask a question i might have missed it a halt to the project you mention a bait-and-switch. >> we've told a number of sfrrldz after we built the tunnel we'll remove the pipelines we decided not to remove the pipelines and bait-and-switch a dirty word it's not the intent of the staff but to save money to build the project as efficiently has possible i was one of the wanted o of the people that did that ever change but in this case our obligation to rove the pipes. >> i'd like to get more information how toxic and toxicity and the cost price range might be and the feasibility of the removal of pipes is that possible.
9:37 am
>> what we'll do additional meet we have the technical memo he's distributed and in contact with don and in contact with kathy and steve we'll come back to the commission give you an update and price of options and also, if there are savings that are realized the feasibility of it as well and if it does not look great to have those pipes going to it we want to be good environmental stuart's. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> any other public comment? hearing none next item, please. >> >> next item please is item 5 communications i'd like to note on item 5 b the

9:40 am
we'll put our heads together to come up with something. >> seems to me as part of budget deliberation during the energy we want to have something. >> that's part of that. >> the president of the united states that's coming up pretty quick i'll suggest to the calendar the conversation sooner than later we'll be looking at something it would be nice to know how go solar fits into programs we'll work on that and recommendations for that. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> any other commission business? >> yes. >> so to earlier comments if francisco i have concerns about dr. jackson i know i think for those of us who feel related to dr. jackson for me personally you know one of the most important roles in government is

9:45 am
commission we did have contractors would come here and tells you about very poor we couldn't have done it without you on the pipes and so forth we need real transparency much like we're facing at mountain tunnel we need real transparency the other thing is we can talk all we want to about the sewer system improvement project not an easy project when you promise the public that they will be participating in certain of the booshgz with the task force was created and those have not yielded been met
9:46 am
and the commissioners think that all is okay. it is not okay we are monitoring you how are we monitoring you we're collecting input data we know of people that can do risk management on any project we know of people that do qualify control they're not dump this is a $6 billion project where are the best practices? now we have this committee that plays the general manager and i've played him, too that is not part of valuation we want standards and booshgz we want valuations and transparency on the 13wek9 we're living in a digital world thank you very much >> thank you
9:47 am
it's a good transition to 9 next item. >> item e the technology progress report. >> commissioner president vietor and commissioners cfo for the puc i have the next installment in your yearlong effort to look at the recommendations we have with respect to them so today, we're talking about the technology policy it was so adopted in september of 2012 and it really establishes four areas by principles and criteria by which
9:48 am
to consider that adopt and implement the technology there are 4 basic areas the first relates to economic consideration essentially this is making sure there is a solid business case for the deployment of technology and very little impact for example, you're looking mobile field technology that allows field forces to operate for efficiently and drive less and reduce the green house gas emissions that is a very well impact and the social and workforce development how it aligns with the policy or staff development opportunities and finally leadership and transparency and that really is oriented towards conducting pilots and making sure there is democr
9:49 am
democratab demonstrable technology - the puc is responsible for the technology and the various projects and chaired by the deputy project sponsor and comprised by the puc there are a numbering number of subcommittees i've listed a few here and then we cooperate and collaborate with agencies and boards within the city and with other utilities in a range of ways directly through industry organizations when we look at the policy we thought overall assessment it seems like to be relevant for over investment and certain
9:50 am
principles and criteria are more measurable and actionable than on the economic criteria and consideration and the leadership takes into account were more tangible in terms of evaluating technology but the others environmental and social workforce impact are equally as important one of the things we've found that a lot of the work tend to be focused an information item and while it is tough to separate the technology from other intelligence we focus has been much more information on the technology we also came up with two areas we think warrants consideration we are already doing but we think this is important to address the information security and business information we want to propose a modification of a
9:51 am
leadership set of criteria to focus on really traditional information that drives improvement in the surface level of efficiency from the commission is set we would like to return this to the business technology council to look at implementing those types of changes and work with them i'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. >> commissioner vice president moran. >> thank you and ethics thank you for that report this is i think responsive to the commission request to review those policies periodically and what is the policy and how are we are doing against that one thing you've pointed out in your report i notice in reading it is where the initial intent
9:52 am
of the policy was to focus on utility oriented technologies what seems to have been implemented most effectively is the information technology area and i guess i'd like to spend some time over the next months working with whoever the appropriate people whether it is you or the general manager members of the various enterprises to look at scaling that effort up to deal with the emergency technologies that effect the way we do our business and this last year, we committed to the ohio draft process which is new and pooirlg
9:53 am
and leading edge i hope we're tracking and other technologies in terms of how you get salt out of water that need to be tracked as well i'd like to work with staff to see what it would took and look like to expand that effort into the other areas mike and i were talking earlier this is work exploring opportunities for collaboration with the cal agency i don't know what that looks like but so it might be worthwhile and a situation with the cal county report on the officers and adds value to us and demonstrate there is some areas out there i think this is a good start i'd like to work
9:54 am
with staff on expanding it into the other technology areas and one request that i have of maybe kind of a set of the bed for this thinking is that the policy called said we should explore mr. small technologies and we do that at 525 in the reports we'll get the sources of the improvement programs i would like to have developed a set of criteria for what a pilot projects looks like it is different usually, we're buying something the pilot projects we're trying to get right so the thought process has to be different and the criteria
9:55 am
you have to have criteria some sense of what success looks like a measurement program some kind of reporting process we did the pilot project and here it is we can share it with the people i helpful to have thought if it goes towards a practice this utility when we decide what are we reilly having to have a fully operational technical office or technology over that we might ask them to do in the absence and thinking how to get that done maybe some thought how we want to develop that function as well. >> other comments?
9:56 am
public comment on this item? >> commissioners you you know that i represent the first people the reason why i'm bringing this turk and asking you all to take a serious year 2016 we get our water one and 60 miles away from san francisco we have to have the ability to manage containments it is our water shed but it is dangerous whether it is congestion water is much more precious than gold so we have to ask ourselves and
9:57 am
ca ask tour mayor why is it we want so many people coming to san francisco who gives them that permission this is the land of the people they stole the land every square inch so if we give this people who build market-rate units that let us charge them more let's charge them more for the clean water and charge more for the sewage and why in 2016 we don't have real time technology i've spoken about this before i know one of the commission is interested in things that are smart but people can't use smart telephones this is stupid and in the army we say kiss keep it simple stupid and
9:58 am
encouraging smart people to do the right thing we can't encourage stupid people to do the right thing if they don't have a vision if they can't think outside the box so here in san francisco we don't tap into our water shed this much do you know it is contained contemplated over three hundred thousand tons of meth gas spews into the area 22.2 pounds-21.2 tons of carotid yet we talk about the cartoonish footprint we use concrete and aggregate all the as i understand to the hopefully of college know we contribute to
9:59 am
the carbon footprint sfpuc should take a lead in that you have a gentleman a commission that is in the california scientific that can help you thank you very much thank you. >> mr. brooks good afternoon. >> good afternoon, commissioners eric brooks clean advocates and also you can explore the technical aspects of what commissioner vice president moran raised on community choice cleanpowersf right now a situation whereas, you, you may recall what happens last year around various piece of legislation roosevelt panels don't count in the go solar and to enable a customer to count
10:00 am
roosevelt solar an official way to you get credit and make it part of system it is important that they have an adequate level technology meter because pg&e didn't provide those and pg&e pretty much designed the quote/unquote smart meters to put in energy back both the grid as a matter of fact you have to buy a meter from pg&e 200 plus dollars we a need to analyze things like that in the technology this is applying to big programs like go solar and analyze the demand response intelligence that the sfpuc may be able to introduce into homes
10:01 am
we give them light bulbs but to meter the technology in the day and hopefully, this is part of technology conversation because that actually delivers the bank for the buck like programs like go solar. >> any other public comment? hearing next item. >> >> good happy new years to the commissioners and first like to take a moment to let everyone know i harnt to visit dr. espanola jackson and when i actually went there she was in good spirits we talked about the college or 18 hundred oakdale
10:02 am
she perked up i told her we need her involvement we're going though the planning process so i was who else was with me, sam murray she give us a lecture maybe too much for you today so we'll go next week to keep up her spirits i want to say we miss you coming to the commission so the first item i'd like 0 steve richie to give an update on the drought excuse me. steve richie assistant manager for water north side providing a drought update good news pro tem news the normal chart of water storage levels hetch hetchy is
10:03 am
72 percent of capacity and the water bank is about 32 percent of capacitate is coming up the total systems storage is 47 percent that is only 60 percent of normal we're well blow necessarily but everything is on the rise and that's because the precipitation is good so as you can see this chart we've stayed above the medium level for the water years as far so. >> steve you said storage is what percentage. >> 46.8 that is 60 percent of normal. >> thank you. >> uh-huh again, the community precipitation is above the medium level as as opposed to
10:04 am
the other levels it good news and the snowpack is the medium level more storms expected later this week it continues to look good we have a ways to go but everything is on the right track right now i've shown this the water available to the city as far this year is 42 that's the amount of water after the districts obligations are met last year, we only had 50 thousand acres for the entire year we've up and the year before that with was 22 percent so it is on track and the typography shows roughly what it takes for us to fill the water bank for the entire system based
10:05 am
