because everyone is middle-class and working together 17 thousand one hundred of units have been completed >> (clapping.) >> 36 affordable inform middle-income and low income we have to keep it going working very hard and build and when we work together we can get stuff done today we are announcing something i really am excited about supervisor katie tang is reinching home sf home sf is a working with our developer community with the neighborhood with our labor leaders we can do more than that zoning if we provide more incentives this is what working with the board will be helpful in doing so with the home sf program over 6 to 8 hundred more restrictive units can be built in the city for middle-income and families
1:45 pm
throughout the city i'm excited with the supervisors come up with creative ideas i'm sorry 6 thousand did i say - 6 thousand units i'm getting excited when we are initiative at the same time our residents say we have to be practical whether we work together both can be accomplished with quality housing that all of our units represent and our nonprofits help to manage and the you city we are refugesized your public housing portfolio not see combe e delipidated housing you'll see housing that mixed use and the residents are the same people but with a lot more restrictive hope excited about working with the board let's get more housing for everyone let's have a great
1:46 pm
valentine's day. >> thank you, mayor ed lee and we're announcing a renewed effort around a program designs for middle-income and working-class families guaranteeing new projects thirty percent for working-class families and a requirement that over 40 percent of units are at least two bedrooms or grooemz e three bedrooms to serve our families that want to have children. >> (clapping.) >> so we will be bringing forgot legislation in the board of supervisors in the coming months and hope you'll join you there's a lot of things happening this in the federal government there might be people that don't want to include us in the country in san francisco we embarrass diversities we really need to walk the talk and build the housing that is inclusive
1:47 pm

1:48 pm
unfortunately in the city we've gone to the extreme and becoming a city of the/88 we have to make drastic steps in the housing policy the only way to house people to make a bold step so we're here to say that is time to step forward for working people and step up for working families and need to begin to make them a priority in my district prior to the great recession you could find an affordable housing but now homes are north of one million dollars in the sunset homes well noting of one million dollars in the bloifts approaching one million dollars not for working-class and the market took care of of itself but our chances and
1:49 pm
opportunity to make a bold move and steps towards working families over the decades produced 23 thousands of low income housing when a redevelopment agency we produced housing for working-class but no consistent funding stream for working families i'll repeat no consistent funding stream for working families so if you're a janitors if you're a laborer if you're a pledgeer or carpenter and a hotel working or noose no housing designed for you, we don't have the funding we need to make bold steps in the coming weeks we'll talk about inclusionary but i stand here today in full support of everyone that supervisor katie

the middle and moderate housing meets the city's goals to solve the housing crisis will have housing for working-class and thirty percent of all new housing will be permanently affordable and 40 percent are required to include two bedrooms or more restrictive and challenging in san francisco are here we've got a lot more work to do this is an sdwralg part and the most significant program we can put together we've working on in a very long time but part of a multi faceted program for an important role in keeping families in the city i really look forward and want to acknowledge the mayors leadership and supervisor tang's leadership we're looking forward to working with that to move forward and get housing built thank you very much. >> (clapping.)

circumstances that the teacher did and extra curriculum activities he maintained and sfusd is not a unified school district without the families to send their families to a second home and a daily basis with the understanding they'll come home smarter and requester the question knowing that the answer will come from recess in the after-school programs then from their classrooms and sfusd is, of course, the teachers that come to school to make a difference we do our best to make it interesting and inspire the love of learning in the students and know that phillip was the first to receive those goals and sfusd is also an administrator that intention

president can't call this a state of union but i will, in 2016 k l w celebrated the 75 year on the air in 1941 teachers put this station on the air as the first fm station on the west and we're going strong we are an enterprise units the district we raise our own budget 3/4ths comes down from listeners and the balance from federal support for public publishing and in kind supported from the district incredibly value for the high school and the studios also legal h.r. accounting support special mr. cook i want san francisco thank you for the
4:07 pm
relationship we are also grateful talk about that every year for the for a second this is a district and this is a board that represent that is important to have an editorial firewall between the listening and the station like k l w i can only imagine it is important for the news outlet and have a listener relationship to the listeners is incredibly important didn't mean we can't collaborate with the district to provide district inform on the air with resources or work with students all of which we do but the journalists need to do their work without - that's how things work with our station and heard storehouses from other manages working in the stukts r unified school districts and that's not always the reason but
4:08 pm
this is the station broadcast of the district and wanted to - you to feel that represents the district well and connected to the sfusd mission to educate the students and the broader public so oh, one the things i want to talk about the importance of k l a what direction what we're doing in the history do let you know the station has become known as one of the most preview initiate stationed in public radio when i first started the job when i showed up with public radio the main answer to i'm from k l w what is it where is that now people associate with with integrate programming i want to talk about a couple of
4:09 pm
examples one of them it is showing up here is this is a program that in you 2011 november i thought daniel in the bay area and one of the producers came do me and said we want to take the story telling and journalism and want to bring it to the stories of people throughout the americans who speak spanish and make that a spanish language pod cast that side that now at the time there was nothing like that in public radio i thought that was an important idea though we do not an english station but put our resources for the first two years it was produced at k a l w studios and grew and become an
4:10 pm
independent production in 0 november apr says we'll have the first spanish pod cast their building openly on what established at k a l w and having the stories on the news and considered in the morning edition that was something that started and what you started at the station and also in 2013 we started a program called a partnership between the new department of and k l a w and jouftsz inside of san convention let's tell stories about life inside the prison and families affected by the fact they have people on the inside of that community that who incarcerated people in them and tell
4:11 pm
overseeing stories from the perspective the prisoners recorded by a journalist that san convention has grown and a link that shows you some of the stories but in addition to those stories we continue it carry it really inspired some of the journalist to say we can do incredible things in audio they heard an international composition for new pod casts called pod quest with the producer that works with them said they decided to come up with a new pod cast expanding on what the san conventiquentin re
4:12 pm
theirs was chosen to have resources behind it to distribute is to market and deputy it once again something that started here unabated with the new voices on air this is about women changing the status quo started here and chosen as one of the pod casts that you take part in that is a pod cast by the public radio they too are saying here's a great idea we want to support and bring to the broader public and finally lightwell you know about a show we're producing with the community and it - so
4:13 pm
on the air for a year do a monthly show in theatres at march 23 and putting in a plug and i'll give my e-mail later so and i'm sorry, i lost any thought here it is a fun show what we do is take on social and political issues the days with funny conversations are challenging go conversations about things that matter that is what we're trying to do in this work i realize i skipped over a pod cast on the lower right hand corner this is our host of the news cross current and a reporter in the news department they have a new pod cast coming out called the
4:14 pm
student and comes from the african-american background and found their conversations go hearing about black identity maybe we can tell the stories and bring them forward and relied to be part of the pod cast they didn't win they were semifinal lifts but picked up we're not seeing those kinds of conversations and want to support this kind of work i tell you about that not only because i'm proud of the work it is important and exciting but to give you a sense the roll like we can play in taking risks and bringing forward voices and really been we do this in the context of the district but has an impact far beyond the community in parts of public radio and part of the media next, i want to tong given that
4:15 pm
tonight we have the first address of president trump congress we in public radio continental k l a w feel our responsibility for informing the community engaging in the civic dialogue with the humanity it is incredibly important and he can tell you in the months since the election the confuses we are having the increased responsible and wanted to get this right it is powerful when i came to the station in 2001982 as a producer i was the only public affairs producer was in a station on a daily basis no news department no local newspaper like now the growth of the station has met in a moment like there is so
4:16 pm
many stories to cover from national down to the local so many important conversations we need to be engaged in the fact that the station has grown the capacity it is what i understood the importance of that on the local call many of in you remember the host we had a number of shows about trumps combrnt appointees and a full week of immigration with an immigration policy to bring people that be directed effected by the executive order that came from the trumpet administration earlier this year i'm proud we are in a position to do and to bring to the community our local news magazine talking the impact
4:17 pm
of the metrics and rhetoric on people in the bay area whether immigrant and transgender people and women those that kind of reporting and talking about high speed rail and they did an entire half an hour talking about the high speed rail in san francisco and how it is affected by about the policies and room on the station for voices to come to the administration like the sfusd students that travel to washington, d.c. for the women's march a number of whom had their voices during the commentary and reports they took tape recorders and reflections what they were hearing we brought them to the air in the bay area so public radio is important all the time it is incredibly for the district can feel good about being part of supporting this resource we also are really reconnecting
4:18 pm
with the educational mission station the first 35 years of the existence we're a training station much more concerned with educating students for connecting with listeners that changed as mp r came on the air and bbc and grow the listeners but in recent years we have been working to reintegrate teaching and education into the work we do not only because of relevant and exciting radio to listen to we oh, yeah, that's where we began the students on the tower putting up the transmitter in 1941 in the past years development the audio comedy a
4:19 pm
intuition free program for adults from the community to learn audio journalism and audio techniques we're in the fourths or fourth-class and people in the previous classes. >> number have gone on to work in audio for shows hike snapshot judgment or users like reuters we've shown we can bring skills to those folks that serve them in the workplace and it is also been important it is not just about what we can do for people in the audio complained by the way, what they bring their own information we might not to have assess and for the last 5 years have hosted summary or summer
4:20 pm
interns primarily from burlington high not solely but we have dedicated resources to pay for stipends and hired staff to specifically work with the students in audio journalism in public radio they may not have been in a position to again, the to the place they can have a commentary or a story on the air it is up to our standards we are looking at and applied for the grant of the california arts council to expand that so have 5 std students at the station. >> minimum keep it at the level we're committed and love having the students there everything is about growing through the listener support we like i said 2/3rd's of the budget comes if listeners and in in this year we set ambitious
4:21 pm
goals to improve the growth pattern we're on and making one time expenditures i'll talk about unfortunately year to date june 31st we have the numbers are looking positive so the blue bars with the actual dollars year to date jan 31st comparing the last 4 fiscal years we're up by about 8 percent over the last two years and steady support versus overseeing years and also the red line is very, very important to me which is about growing the actual number of donors the members that are supporting this station is up by about 9 percent year from last year our 75 anniversary that was circling people to give you think that also in the election year and this election year in particular people recognition
4:22 pm
the value of the service and step forwarding when is great we can stay in line with the combroelz goals and looking forward to my priorities as the leader of the station to complete the work we're doing on the space at burton hi as you may know we spent the last 13 months outside of basically in the parking lot of burlington high a couple of visited and finally governor brown guess it was last week we make it into the spice burton high is a yearlong renovation process the work is not done a lot of updates to the studios a number one we have new equipment that is to be replaced but really expand what we can do in the
4:23 pm
space aconfigure from analog ho we do our productions this is a be short time important role and another bigger one for me as the leader is policy building with the structure of the districts policy that as a radio station as a media entity there is a lot of specific policies internally about how we work from what kickoff how we conduct our journalism to make sure there is or are not conflict of interests who is doing the broadcasting i'm using this opportunity to move into the space at a time to really think about how to clarify those policies for people inside the station which goings-on for a rake of people to people in the audio academy
4:24 pm
who have been around and looking at the policies that communications across from the staff people to the volunteers and trainings the other area that is really, really important is investing in the development capacity we've grown a lot in terms of the program and our development capacity and if you have any questions, we'll be happy to answer themably and getting the philanthropic support we do has not grown co-sponsoringly we have an incredible development team and a gentleman a handling a small amount of people doing incredible stuff and with the programming management would we'll be in balance and need to work on steering more the resources to make sure we have more resources to get more resources. >> i know that is incredibly
4:25 pm
important and finally i talked about this before and talking to i really know the sustainability of the stations financially but in terms of take full vantage the opportunities in serving this community and collaboratively with the communities are will require us to tap sweet spots community for the work we do i have not mad the progress in the last year, i certainly want to move other things heard but consider this really the key to the fire chief the thought station. >> thank you loans o lessons how to do community around a 50 is adjunct to the station thank them for that and want to thank
4:26 pm
two other people like i said we've been in the process of rebuilding the studios we have a chief a person that works nights and weekend james he's strapped for time but a big project i can't believe what eave be able to move forward really doing it around the contours and i want to thank phillip pubically and to really is everyone at the station for lisa and others done great work a colleague is something o someone who is a legendary by the way, listener for a long term and donated his time and we are very, very grateful with that, i'm open up to you all and thank you very
4:27 pm
much thank you so much for your presentation any public comment? seeing none, colleagues commissioner norton >> thank you thanks for the report always nice to see you oh, that's the time of year georgia again, i'm proud for a member and renew my membership this year i want to ask a little bit about some of our financial position because it seems like in the last few years you've
4:28 pm
operating deficits not huge ones but i can you talk a little bit about that and i hear you're wanting to invest in development that's a that's a great question but where those come from and our opportunity to address that. >> i really think the opportunity to address it - i mean, i'll be honest i spent a lot of time this is probably the case for my development director working in partnership we're spending a lot of time inside and not enough time outside the real opportunity obviously we have an incredible basis of orders some of whom we have been conflicting around the major gifts to do the work and this is my director managed and said we need to open up more of my time not working on day to day
4:29 pm
financial accounting so we can look at the higher level for the staff with the large donors i mean when it comes to the defic deficits you know is really been around we've grown we've taken opportunities around programming i think that would have been a mistake not to tampa them up but at the same time, i on the fix is on the revenue side but i'm also in a place we can't take on new projects we can expand and are stephanie not just the development but our management capacity so i'm trying to hold the line it is hard there are a lot of opportunities. >> focused on how to take on the revenue side i think that
4:30 pm
you know in the scheme of the burr we're a small organization but it is figuring out how to take the time and other leadership of the station. >> you don't want to be the downer i think that is great the investment i think there is great things doing so all good but it comes at a price so we'll be not doing our job if we didn't look at that it is wise to invest and shore up the refers the trend - i'm not alarmed but is another year you start to see that. >> thank you comprehends commissioner vice president mendosa-mcdonnell thank you i enjoy hearing the
4:31 pm
work and i'm grad you had a chance to come out and dr. murase do the if you have any questions, we'll be happy to answer theming effort is great and excited to see your new face we are a the bungalow. >> when we get things zipped up you're welcome i think in april we'll have it all. >> i definitely want to come out and hang out with camille you know that. >> (laughter). and then i know one of the things we've talked about over the years is more programming about our schools and i did connect you with someplace that was interested in doing some going to the school and doing stories i'm wondering how you're thinking about that or how we, incorporate more stories about
4:32 pm
students - one the students we were talking about over the weekend was the the affirmative for the school of the art and big deal been cool to have a moment with him, i want to just think about that >> for the first time we've hired some part time b loaders education so not solely in san francisco so we're putting effort targeted saying okay how can we decade that we definitely have had ivy think we need a line of communication you, you know about stories in the district in a way we may not
4:33 pm
know necessarily i know there are definitely minded when jeff has pitched things our direction we cannot take up all of them but definitely the set of students that went to washington for the women's march that was a good example kate here's an opportunity and actually first brought to us oh, you want to publicize this we're interested in empowering the kids so maybe that's i think that will be part of approach in terms of the what are the examples - making it clear so people in the district know here's where the ideas come and so on our radar. >> yeah. i i get it your bay area but we own the station so i guess to me it is almost like it
4:34 pm
becomes you know an even tuesday story because this is our station and i feel like we don't - like you'll not know that is ours we're can't give to anyone else and i really would love to see more stories we have e-mails that go out on the new feed regularly that, you know, that highlights all the stories throughout the schools and i don't know if you receive that but that is you know a good way to do that we believing and highlights a bunch of things i'm not looking for i know you have to do news worthy news i think we want to be able to highlight sfusd you know the radio station
4:35 pm
commissioner murase. >> first of all, i want to congratulate you, mr. martin because i often say? my first school board you need a line of credit to keep the station going it has controversial i was getting e-mails why are you funding a radio station when the schools have a gap but it was a wise decision you managed to bring the radio station from the brink and recognition you for your personal leadership leadership in you know really e reenabling this station but i want to build only commissioner norton's concern about revenues and the unified school district recently started the on 50 is
4:36 pm
sparks school if you need technical assistance we have that here at the unified school district we have a new leader that works on the private giving so we have that resource here so i think there is a lot of opportunity more than a partnership one of my questions he asked several years ago was whether you had an advisory committee because clearly you were shouldering everything and sounds like you condition to shoulder a lot when you might benefit from having a team that perhaps has network that can help with the if you have any questions, we'll be happy to answer theming end ever things i encourage you to pursue the having the governing board, and,
4:37 pm
secondly, building on commissioner vice president mendosa-mcdonnell commit i'd like to see more content but like to know you have gifts in and out of our station but making the guests available to burton between the community and the operating nationally recognized are station recently and a committee meeting we were discussing the internal designation that is not what i like to see would love to see more of a community around the station the high schools i appreciate that the students have summer internships at the
4:38 pm
station it is labor intensify to see the interns at the station but 0 another resource another way in which the station can be for the school to perhaps have some of our speakers in the classrooms or an assembly you know come out that would be a big event for a school and to bring some benefit to the benefit to the school beyond the internship will be great. >> ms. eng. >> thank you for the presentation and having so much original content and casing with the school board meeting and mp r with the content as well i wanted to community-based in the back of commissioner murase her
4:39 pm
students have a connection to the community whether the neighborhood businesses i think outside the box pretty important, and, secondly, you talked about hiring students during the summary i have a friend that actually did that last summer really enjoyed it so a comment to hire more students from various backwards to expand the program if you can i know a lot of students at the - would benefit from the program thank you very much. >> supervisor coke. >> thank you for your presentation and also want to commend around the organizations so i can only imagine to come
4:40 pm
out and ask for support and then have to rebuild to so congratulations and a variety of programming that you offer and i wanted to just hear our initial thoughts based on the recommendations of commissioner vice president mendosa-mcdonnell and commissioner murase can you respond. >> so the i mean the idea of trying to leverage some of the people coming into the station with burton this is great i like working on a campus like when we managed the leverage connections with the students in the station requires coordination you make the things happen we're having a guest how will we set up the opportunities i think a great conduct and working closely with
4:41 pm
the arts commission academy teachers this is a a good place to do that every student does this job i think that to me is a doable idea i like that bringing it into a clamor. >> i agree that will be a good thing. >> putting it with a little bit of work and think about doing something like that i think the question how we covered the unified school district and bringing forward unified school district stories i think that is more and more challenging i have a hard time asking my news department teacher you're in charge cover the unified school district they wanted to covered that is not way i want to ask my new employees to do but not meaning there a can't be other forms of the supporting the stories and maybe look at that out of journalism
4:42 pm
perspective there is journalism different responsibilities there obviously in a basic way talk about the lunches and talk about the events coming up in the district so there may be a way to do that i think it needs to be outside of the news and public affairs because their you'll have a report what is news worthy and also to be able to report the things news worthy and not necessarily what the district want us to support i have to been what form that might take to think about what you're suggesting i know there is undone work about representing great stuff happening in the district so - >> in terms of i mean speaking to your ability to turn the stations financial situation around i'm sure you can create a way to address the concerns and
4:43 pm
what we think is a reasonable timeline that present some of those suggestions to follow up lion 60 or 90 days to talk about that. >> you're saying we'll be doing our budgeting process this is a good time to do that 60 days - 90 days tell me the format. >> commissioner vice president mendosa-mcdonnell. >> i'd like to see something in the next 60 days thinking around it and other ideas that be be awesome. >> to clarify around the budget questions. >> no no about how you can incorporate
4:44 pm
the school districts in news and other things even what commissioner murase recommended to be connected to the school there is great teacher stories and things that are national and hooifltd you know, i know that is good. >> item m consent calendar resolutions there is none tonight. item n vote a consent calendar that was there is a motion that has been seconded under section f voted ms. casco. >> thank you ms. eng ms. zaragoza mr. cook mr. haney
4:45 pm
ms. mendoza-mcdonnell except for item k-11 that was retracted. >> thank you dr. murase ms. norton mr. sanchez president walton thank you o consent calendar severed for boards immediate action 13 item p now introduce and assigned for that the committee for the superintendent proposal for first reading for the record no board members introduction tonight item 172 adoption of board policies adult student boundary that is going to be referred to rules and policy and legislation may i have a motion and second to the resolution.
4:46 pm
>> so moved. >> second. >> thank you we have public comment on this item president from u e sf. >> okay. i'm here to speak to the proposed policy on adult student boundary overall the proposals are reasonable and i think they makes sense wear committed to students safety and insuring conduct of all the employees but - we are very concerned with a couple of issues the first to the extent that any of the impacts impact the safety issues beyond the scope of bargaining and like you to go through them one by one
4:47 pm
and see if any should be subject to - and stepping back broadly we really ask you consider as the policy written not gone too far in the context of the extreme teacher shortage so have a written policy that includes 0 prohibiting a behavior that is touching students without a educational purpose not funny but shocking to me as a human being parent a teacher a person in the district to think our district will have a written policy you can't touch a kid without an cycle purpose i challenge anyone to be in a clamor for more than a day without a need not a human need
4:48 pm
but part of teaching is being human and a good part of being teachers we know the boundaries but the most effective teaches have an element of being a human i can't hug my kindergartener when this kid needs a hug for a version for mission high school and high school and i worry about this will have an chilling affect on in the district and coming to the district i mean, i do permanent know teachers in the district for many years who have modified the way they behave because not wanting to be subject to you know undue discipline so we really urge you to step back and consider that particular sections of the guidelines and as you go moving towards adapting a policy that meets the
4:49 pm
