giving up governance what we've seen and heard doesn't say we give up combrns its nor aligned and better effective and efficient of fund. clearly we can't do that alone i'm going to be honest. i think i'm my fourth-generation san franciscan i'm afraid of the future for san francisco for our children. i do this somewhat out of fear for our families that find it harder and harder to live in san francisco and survive here but i also do it for the future of the children and the families and in particular our students that will graduate from our city hall's and hope they'll be able to live here and raise children. i believe in order to do that we
must work with the city to make it happen. and i think that we can hold everyone accountable. they're not the ones to evaluate us around the student achievement we evaluate ourself but the commitment so the 55 public children and those who will come to us. i'm okay with this. i have to say it's a leap of faith but i'm okay i feel like the way we've been doing it is not effective we're losing more and more of our african-americans families it's a hard gap to close we only have them for 6 hours a day and there's a larger community that needs to support our children this is a way to work together so it's more efficiently and
finishing. i'm going to close the comment and moving on to our next temazepam n consent calendar resolutions. and there are none together and a vote on consent calendar this was moved and seconded 90 in section f commissioner haney commissioner president mccarthy's. dr. murase. commissioner wynns arrest commissioner norton and president fewer arrest 7 i's. consent calendar resolution severed and any actions. none. yes superintendents proposals. no one board members first reading none let's make that brief. can we have a report from
april 7, 2014. >> thank you and i will be brief i just wanted to talk about the tops we had at yesterday's curriculum program meeting we have an action item for the san francisco unified school district student and parental handicap book resolution on dress and apparent standards we kept this resolution in committee because we really feel there are a lot more areas to deceive into to have more staff that need to address the issues but to make sure our next meeting is may fifth and the next regular board meeting is may 14.
you have a timeline you're interested in meeting i want you to be aware of those dates commissioner haney and is that fine with you >> the only timeline is the issue the handbook we'll have to follow up with the superintendant about that. >> thank you, very much very much. the other tactics were informational there they are the school district improvement system and the follow-up to the city skuthd that happened on february 27th. and it was there was a presentation from the office of extended learning and support and the follow-up information i'll go with that tactic u topic
first, the cripple member president fewer and vice chair and i agree that truly the information rewarding the credit recovery implementation we've been able to put in place with summer school online education our connects with city college and - okay. those opportunities we heard some of the results thankful yields which have been positive but not as positive as positive outcomes we had hoped or where under the impression off we need to be aware of the responsibility that we have for the students b that are off track at what level that off
track is. so the president and vice president will discuss if there's a possibly to bring this discussion to have a truly you deep understanding of having ongoing dialog with the staff but also the public is aware of the number we're understanding and working with. later a presentation at the regular board meeting where it's televised and on the radio. the most important thing to know about the improvement quality spelling the last name system we'll be a reluctant waiver may first. with the other court district that's 3 and a half weeks from now i know our staff is working with the reluctant application.
and lastly we had a followup presentation with the dr c with the san francisco unified school district and that comes from the march third curriculum meeting we asked specifically our power point talked about the type of academies and asked the curriculum department to do an analysis for the acknowledge how students are understanding what their learning from the program and could they on the content in another course or elsewhere. the committee is whether their
imperial the alignment with the states standards and the analysis of the understanding, of course, for comment that there will take a while but understanding all our courses will be kindly into the process so by the time we come with the guidelines we'll be setting an example for the nation to follow. as i understand it although dr t c is in line everyone will get in line they're not singled out they only happen to be first. that concludes my report. and all the materials commissioners are in your mailbox and the next committee
meeting is may fifth at the so you mean to e 6 o'clock in the board room >> seeing no other comments from commissioners. i want to report that the next meeting is a student assignment ad hoc will be on wednesday april 30th and we'll hear a report about the enrollment assignment process. thank you. yes. i want to report back on two opportunity i had to spread the ucsf gospel i participated in a meeting with the fed ration have teachers with susan solomon and matt and our district was being highlighted not only for the work around safe schools but so far the collaboration and the
way in which our district and union and also with the community. so we are one of the few district to talk about what we're doing as an example for the unit representatives and district representatives who were there. it was an honor to be there and represent our district. the second thing i was at the national school board convention in new orleans and browns also got to talk about the work i presented our school food redesign perhaps from the revolution foods it was wonderful to be in new orleans and we got to talk about the work we're doing here so - >> i would like to mention i attended the g s a workshops

car, these hills became accessible. he watched horses be dragged to death. cable cars were invent in san francisco to solve the problem with it's unique, vertically challenged terrain. we are still using cars a century old >> the old cable car is the most unique thing, it's still going. it was a good design by then and is still now. if we don't do something now. it's going to be worse later. >> the cable cars are built the same as they were in the late 1800's. we use a modern machinery.
we haven't changed a thing. it's just how we get there. >> it's a time consuming job. we go for the quality rather than the production. we take pride in our work and it shows in the end product. >> the california line is mostly locals. the commuters in the morning, i see a lot of the same people. we don't have as tourists. we are coming up to street to
chinatown. since 1957, we are the only city in the world that runs cable cars. these cars right here are part of national parks system. in the early 1960's, they became the first roles monument. the way city spread changed with the invention of the cable car. >> people know in san francisco, first thing they think about is, let's go
♪ ? an incredible program because we take regular kids teach them the love of the game. we have no emphasis on winning we only have an emphasis on learning and trying as hard as they can that's it and the chips fall where they may. when students leave our program whether or not adults or kids they'll have a mechanical understanding of what they have. you don't have to be 7 feet tall or be super faster but you do need skwil. once you teach kids
