10:17 am
school districts that get federal funding the accommodations specified in the 504 plan are in the general education program so this enables the students with varying disabilities that may substantially limit one or more activities to get services to insure equal access that is the key point as it relates to this resolution sf c s d has championed the process it was working before but very focuses on the physicals health niece and broadened to the warns of a wider array of issues of students if get into the way of their access to education a couple of areas where we've made improvements to increasing
10:18 am
the capacity of staff and leaders that support the students for the professional and development example in this last year, we had a hundred and 10504 corresponded that is typely filled by the nurse and administrators this last october they looked at protocols there's been training for the high school staff for other personnel and a lot of work around informing the new veteran administrators through the a.d. hocks last year and this past august really making the connection of the quality lens and those accommodations to make sure our students have access to the general education program
10:19 am
additional we're looking at training for the paraprofessionals so in addition to the one-on-one training provided through insist terrific booster i was we're looking to train patterns with the deelevation strategies for the training happening in september some other pieces of support so for the 5040 process both the folks in sf this task force is convened monthly to look at reviewing and strengthening protocols for the identification so process is only as good as people that know about it and how to assess it. >> one other piece that's been important before we talk written about the data what supports are
10:20 am
available to the school sites to in addition to the 504 correspondents are correspondents a central team that appraise the supports for consultation a quick snapshot looking at the changes over the last two school years the total number of students with the 504 plan increased 50 percent and 34 percent in 2014-2015 the site might look slightly different than the one in the handout we've seen an 81 percent increase in the african-american students receiving the accumulation and services through section 504 on the final slides we also want to give you a breakdown of the type of or the two major categories of the 504 physical
10:21 am
and mental health and note the 76 percent in the increase of number of the students ref support that is addressing the mental health in the past year i want to mention and acknowledge someone else's who's a member the school health sf and here leadership is constitutional and addition not task force that's kathy i want to take a - >> (clapping.) health had asked me to mention to a couple of schools i want to call out principal and hillcrest and sf community both have bang embraced from process in terms of using a team approach and putting interventions into place
10:22 am
with the members of the staff including the teachers and nurses and partners in the community so again, thank you kathy and thank you task force members. >> and before we go on to some of the other data i want to call out a few people that support how success team i know that last year with the superintendent and the board courageously gave the tlipz to the deferring students the secondary post team lead by our team members thank you to them we've been doing early warning the bridge to success and that's a very, very key intervention we've been using for a while so i do want to thank them
10:23 am
on to some more data we'll jump into last year schools suspensions and thomas. >> so obviously this a tactic that can take a lot more time commissioner the suspensions have fatten drastically now slauj out and increasing we're findings we're helping a lot of the elementary schools that were previously not recording suspensions but helping them to record the data correctly this is part of being rigorous about the suspensions but the good news is the suspensions for the students we were the most concerned the african-american students when he started this work all going down significantly. >> we sdp did a great transition i said to show you all the supports and everything we're doing before we have to
10:24 am
resort for the professional development that is happening before i see some of the more sobering data. >> as you can see the last cause of suspension was the serious physical injury with the yellow error and as you can see in general we're stepping down in the same pattern you can also see some members of the community we've unfortunately have some suspensions actually this the system we sort of will found this out at the end of the year for the folks that are not committed so for those 50 suspensions we've been working individually with the city hall's to make sure those schools have the skills and resources they need to not do that in the future now on to the slide that shows
10:25 am
some of the remarkable process we've seen and as you can see that for african-american students there are a definitely pattern of significant decrease it is still you know we've quota got a ways to go we need to call out the middle schools that show the most significant growth and is that i have up you'll see ♪ the numbers in the intervenes they're going a lot of interventions for the is the those two things appears to be going together >> yeah. middle school and (clapping.) >> also, we said to contagious advantage of this time to give you our in alignment with the
10:26 am
stewardship mou we've present the data as you can see those are the last 5 year trends i did present in january, the fall only semester this is 2014-2015 and as you can see well, a slight decrease but pretty much the same as 2013-2014 our data, data speaks for itself our middle school and high school disproportionate arrests across the school district as you can see the gender defensive for the arrests 69 males and compared to 21 females i do want to mention this slide needs to be corrected because it is wrong someone pointed out to me the information so here are my notes
10:27 am
those are the actual arrests this is overwhelming to get you the correct slide i apologize that this one seems to have some numbers correct and some not correct i have the data leading up to the arrests 0 so on sorry it didn't come out in the fall i didn't add in the rest of the toelsz for the year okay so in closing we want to people to know that what are we doing about that we start with the people and the program what is working behind safe and supportive schools to have an impact to make our positive environment for all learners i'd like to leave you with there is really impressive of work that is the work of people behind media here professional development offered during the summer of 2015 before the start of 2015-2016 school year
10:28 am
5 hundred and 17 teachers and staff attend retiree active practices and this is only this summer this is after school ended this south america 2 hundred and 2 staff and teachers get packs for the good behavioral training and others received training in positive behavorial in intervention strategies and 70 people got training and 95 individuals received training in response to behavioral intervention and 58 individuals got train in pro social behavioral and 40 staff received training in joint tenant in the tier index for one thousand plus teachers were
10:29 am
trained bra the 2015-2016 school year starts so a lot of work this is happening and a lot of people that are taking advantage of the training and i'm very proud to say that this is the department that is working very, very hard as i sit in front of you i couldn't be prouder of the work and make sure they know that i precious appreciate all they do for all of us that concludes my presentation. >> before i invite questions or comments we have two public speakers (calling names) if you'll please come to the
10:30 am
podium two minutes. >> i'm kevin the president for the advocacy for cul-de-sack man and student members have been involved that this resolution he since the beginning we've worked closely with the prelims and roll out we're excited about the process that has been made i think for us the big difference between progress and success i think we're a long way of successive prelims of the entire revises if the areas of concerns we have all around the 3 year implementation plan we feel we have not seen a complete calculated implementation plan that outlines when all the changes will be occurring and the support are in place to execute we are haven't seen conversations about the students parents and teachers about how
10:31 am
this will change attire experiences and give them a change to add their voices and concerned about the african-american students we've seen success in the overall numbers increasing but the african-american will more likely to be arrested or suspend they're a fraction of the entire school district we woe we want to make sure that the community as access to this san francisco police commission 0 so we can be engaged someone that something that was missing what the data in numbers we used a lot of numbers in convincing the board we feel this is important the information is shared so we can document the process and see what it looks like for the students in the classroom only african-american students been suspended you how many white and asian students suspended we need
10:32 am
that and wanted to see the board get actively involved in supporting the execution of this and being our allies and making sure our students are getting a high quality education thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> good evening laura with the public council thank you to all the team he of course, how hard you're working and appreciate the vision and the thought behind that and all the efforts we're very much looking forward to a couple of things i want to echo what kevin said we're concerned about the fact there were over a hundred suspensions for last year for the local defines and hopefully more attention paid to that for brown the end of the school year those suspensions should not be occurring and more than 50 percent went to the african-american and the matrix
10:33 am
there should be a phone call to the lead superintendent before a student is suspended that kind of dialogue really for those school sites are getting the information and the interventions what happen right away so see the kind of declines we're also happy to see the balanced scorecards with the indicators and look forward to seeing robust training for administrators around the matrix how to implement and what resources to put in place to assure all the alternatives with available to all schools when we feinstein see that happen with all the internals that's when we will see a huge shift not only if 9 suspensions but the types of surveys the after-school programs hopefully for staff and all students the climate is
10:34 am
getting better and the students are living safer and so the graduation rates will go up i'm looking forward to seeing a strong year and hoping to provide support to the team. >> thank you very much. >> convicting questions or comments from sideboard. >> commissioner walton and commissioner wynns and commissioner fewer. >> mr. truit thank you and our team for the work i know the roll out has, of course, told a lot about the team i appreciate all the work you've been doing i have a few questions one is in terms of perform development so for teachers in the trainer model do we think the resources was sufficient in not what would that look like to make sure that the training is for o more encompassing for the
10:35 am
teachers are we rolling this out at each of citing site to address the school culture and how does that work and we talk about the after-school program are reproviding professional development for the partners that work at the school everything in terms of out of school and off-street parking a lot of cb those are and what does that look like for their professional development and in terms of practicing resort active practices and in terms of track and referrals definitely want to receive information on that and see when that looks like and we did a great job of providing opportunities for the
10:36 am
professional development over the simmer what are we doing for brand new teachers and giving them the support they need as we continue to do the work under the resolution. >> so i know that was 5 questions but - >> are you willing to side one contaminate. >> thank you commissioner walton. >> when you talked about the trainer model were you referring to the 58 trainers the trainer of trainers. >> i know there was a grants for $75,000 was that sufficient and if not. >> - >> so i do also want you to know that the superintendent contributed $50,000 to that to the extended hours for the
10:37 am
teachers we want to saying see how that 48 is going to be trained i think that is a great first step but it certainly a foot in the door i think that another effective way when the bat team go out to the school we can grow our obituary within the school site some people get the expertise and go back and lead the way if you want a specific area you mentioned like i talked about the restore active practices the schools asked us to do to provide the training on who thought questions about the after school you know, we did a couch years ago trained all the leads agencies in the
10:38 am
restorative practices we're implementing the behavioral and tiers of intervention of support for after school and let's see your other question. >> so this year we collaborated with h.r. two to spend 90 minutes if with the brand new teachers and hooking them 80 up to resources whatever we are and at the sites we're paying attention to the brand new teachers we have increasing the experience set of culture that are getting good at this you asked us about the biggest problem around training is access to the staff it's not you know because of the time is to limited on the school date but it gives us more activities will
10:39 am
will how us more assess to the staff for training were in a couple of weeks doing the substitute teachers thanks to the collaboration with human resources in mrmentd and in terms of classroom referrals we'll get more specifics about what questions we'll get the data for you. >> commissioner wynns and commissioner fewer. >> thank you and thanks to everybody that was really exist i'm glad to hear most of those things one question about the i remember last spring when matt and i did a presentation at sb a and were shocked to see when you
10:40 am
gave us the data i don't remember but anyway, it had the local categories we saw that happened so, of course, we want to know that i'm more concerned this is this is a bookkeeping issue we didn't get it out of the dictated system when we thought we did uniform concerned about the followup with the schools where that data is coming from so follow-up on the data we didly have collected but serious because we were concerned we've always been concerned we can pass all kinds of policies but having the mechanisms to really be able to understand their followed with filled outlet is another question here's an opportunity we should be following up on and not letting
10:41 am
that get away from us. >> it has a little bit to do with the fact we get this data we pull it out specific cause and we see this so we have had to do is pull it regularly so we can get to the schools that are still doing this we'll follow-up with the schools individual as a matter of high urgency to meet with the administration that i understand - >> so i'm mostly concerned about that we pass this the question was what can you do i understand we can do all those things but what are we doing to sfout schools with call is it something else bus we know they were doing it last year and now that they can't call it that
10:42 am
what other things are they calling it i'm wondering what kind of follow-up to the prelims of all the training we're doing to see that the behavior is changing the staff behavior and in particular in that area because you know we're also there's been a lot of very good serious discussion about we need to understand what everyone meant by local defines or you're not linking to me or get out of here or all the things people didn't want to be doing and this is a an power issue about the actual implementation and actually following the policies we've put in place i'm hoping now or particularly we can now we have a lot of baseline data we've done since we passed the
10:43 am
policy and since this implementation and build the systems what do we actually see that is different. >> i want to mention a couple of things one i think the counseling on that forum and the probation intervention that gives us realtime data we can look up a particular school or look up how many out of classrooms referrals or deintelligence are happening we want to mention we last cohort you to the train was with the high schools we've had all the high schools in some in any way, shape, or form but even the schools that are through training they have new staff this is a restart bottom but bum but one of the things if you
10:44 am
look at the behavorial a ti and the components if, if you look at the three years ago compared to now the feedback from the city hall's has been the absolute most critical i know for myself when i provide the welcome thank you for being here and seeing the agenda bans what the schools says this is working this is not working we need more of that it transforms the understanding more presenters so thomas team a listening to that at the same time having discussions that are what the bat team is having corey with the conversation with pablo and bills team to talk about what was happening and bans the day i know there is not onlylys in the data no suspensions or too many
10:45 am
among category they individually do outreach to them and thomas will be there talking about the data and the data is spawning conversation with the professional development which is constantly changing to meet their needs and hopefully that has some impact. >> prospecting has a response. >> i have another. >> just briefly so the excellent work the family student family division is doing is outstanding we're seeking commissioner a itch more coherent approach across the district so while mr. truit and his team are excellent at the capacity and the hostile spots, if you will, he's working closely with the superintendent and our new chief of schools as
10:46 am
those schools are identified as into the weeds additional port that is written into the schools b f c and written into they're site plan we're monitoring for the accountability so even when i walk into the schools i'm pretty sure their b c and looking for certain evidence of practices in school sites so we're - being much more coherent not just the student father and mother support that is really in charge of that an exciting times i think that part of which you're hearing is the capacitate and building and you don't think i don't want to over emphasis the other but the training we're implementing with a degree of
10:47 am
fidelity. >> i'm seeing things differently but only the data is what we want for the data to show what we see and that it is systemic and applicable across the board and working so i think this is as i said sort of baseline data you know and by way of - and yes. i did i want to go to the training you've talked about i want to go to the one the teachers and the practitioners are saying what about this this is what is happening and tests hard and actually, the train i was able to go for for half the day maybe two or three hours that was a two or three day training so i want to go to one of the two hour training so i can not
10:48 am
because - i mean, i could stay there for two days the way that the board members participate is an issue i want to go to the follow-up training not just the length so i can have an opportunity to hear from people that work evidence how this is working this is hard to hear in a presentation like this this is one of my main points one other thing i this you'll be happy if you sent us the list of the hundred trairnz but i want to if you're listening if i can talk with someone put me in touch with someone where it is effective so that's it and the other thing about the climate surveys so those numbers look incredibly
10:49 am
impressive although the actual the dumbers were not experiencing billing all those numbers real when up hear that. >> so one of the things that comes to mind is people who fill this out their self-selective and people that are engaged in the first place but i'd like to really like to - somebody that is analyzing that point me to someone that help methinks what we think we should learn from this not oh, my god look at those high numbers that self-help me. >> interrupting you should bring that up melanie says there's 3 bars we took out the
10:50 am
bullying ones the 90 percent we don't know about that we didn't wanted to take that away and not show you we had the same question we're looking at. >> i feel so much better i got the right question. >> we'll read that bar so we were - that slide changed but we're looking at that we think that is an important thing to look at i want to say with the programs i say that every time i can't say enough about the quality of the leads agencies and the c b o we're very, very fortunate our children are not just childcare and the organizations are professional and looking at quality and i think they and coming to being
10:51 am
the restorative practices they're made tremendous gains it is 90 percent of not building in the after-school programs and if you only ask them is this true in our after-school program rather than true in the school experience that is a different thing pause after-school programs are small now we want to make them a lot bigger we should be concerned florida if there's a huge disconnect between what necessary experience in school it can't be true to all of us i don't know. >> commissioner fewer and student delegates. >> okay. thank you, chief and i appreciate the whole presentation i think that was
10:52 am
informative and i want to delve a little bit deeper you don't have to answer those now but you can follow-up so the packages are not numbered but under total sphinxes i'm wondering do we have any day on the key suspensions how many of them by the same offender that triggers another intervention smi something you've looked and this is- this did the total suspensions k through 12; is that correct and all the schools for the continuation schools thank you very much that data will be interesting and also when you have the basis intervention would we get the percentages by race that tells
10:53 am
us the certain populations how many; right? i think every time we're doing it by race it good considering we're losing some african-american population so i'm trying and go to measure the impacts when we are looking at the impacts the same question i think for african-american interventions for the top 3 violations and we do it by race tell me sort of what percentage of the ethic group has the suspension and then i think another thing i'm looking and thank you very much to mary a friend of mine to explain to me been the 504 i saw the first number was in a panic is that a good thing i asked mary it in a good or bad thing i'm asking that base think that is a difference level of services or type of serves as
10:54 am
often as the board explains to me and thank you the 504 is not something before a district has really eyed the numbers have shown that in fact the only time i heard of that when you use the elevator this is a physical and mental 504 i'm believeing this increased in the 504 is potentially a very good thing that the students so show for academic successes a separated classroom with 3 levels of education and going to a different classroom i think true to our belief in the district that every student is first a
10:55 am
general ed student i want to know the education achievement of the ask the with the 50 had plans now we have this increase our measure for success should be the impacts an individual students and i'll assume under educational academic xhuchlts achievement and if we're not meeting our goals or we're not seeing an increase in the back we need to look at why the only reason i ask there the department on site i'm saying that the spell education not because of cotter indicator but the impacts on history and everyone can agree with our past history i'm looking at the 504
10:56 am
it is a big increase i want to over and see what is if we could have this i mean sort updated data after you've done what are you finding is this more success and they said naigs is this actually getting more academic second and that, of course, is our hope and i wanted to say that when you look at the percentage increases if the 504 from 2014-2015 and i see two charts here what i want to look at african-american students and our latino students which category did they did we find an
10:57 am
increase in when i say there is h ad and mental health and physical math can i give him a breakdown of those students a those categories are we seeing the increases mainly in physical health and for latino students and then yeah. i guess would love updated information when we emigrate did on the referrals all of that really is about out of classroom time the referrals were off the charts i'm hoping with all the interventions and additional entertaining we're seeing a decrease more in the monitoring i know that data is tricky we need data to be honest and data not to be punitive but
10:58 am
data to correct what we are doing what is not right so i think we walk a fine line; right? we want you to report everybody and honestly even though sometimes, it is not good news and the trigger for height i'm sensitive to the fact we're not listing by schools we don't want to punish schools but help schools; right? and in the implementation of the even more restorative process to mriven that kind of data is important i'd like to see that and of the specific supported schools resolution he think that i was really, really interested in were the referrals because it
10:59 am
was so undocumented and it was so broad of a categories what you, be referred to out of classroom when we look at the suspension rate that was decreasing but really the loophole railroad the classroom referrals in those numbers it is almost shocking the amount of time lost so we can have that that would be great and then i want to is my other concern about restorative practices i was one of the authors i want to make sure we are he continuing our commitment so i'll meet with you i think that you restructured a little bit of your team i'd like to discuss about the restoring and maybe look at that budget together but
11:00 am
chief we want to say to our team thank you very much and for the work i do everyday. >> like to invite comments or questions from the student delegates and commissioner norton. >> thank you president muirase. >> thank you, again to the entire team for taking the effort and time to share this resolution and planning for this resolution and what strikes me is the idea of implementing this reentry conference for the students to have a chance to prove to the staff and members their cable of changing their habits i have two questions maybe i didn't catch it but the actual surveys are they taken from the staff members themselves as in staff members that have received
11:01 am
reports or are they from the voices of students? >> what surveys are you referring to. >> just the - >> after-school program ones. >> the after school surveys and we only reports on the surveys that the students answers and the parents and the staff administrators. >> my second question is so i know that this may not be logical or but - let's say for if a student were to let's see do something wrong and then they were allowed to be receive the re-entry conference but that student after a year or a couple of months that student jorge
11:02 am
hearing were to do another wrong action how does that work do you have any data to answer that like as in like any repetitive action from students or just in general. >> so i'll thank you what because your high school i'll bring up our high school expert come here i can you knew that would be so ms. kern trains iuoe all the high school administrators so the example you gave she'll be able to provide you feedback on that okay. >> hi can you tell me our name. >> i'm teresa chang. >> teresa. >> teresa if i said your question you're asking about
11:03 am
repeat offenses to the students offends in the is that you we looking like to think after we make a mistake we get another chance so some people take longer to learn things we always want to be willing to give them the chance to learn again my advice to the teacher and class is that this time this person will learn and i think the best way for the person to learn positive behavior is to accept that person back in and expecting the best behavior and giving them the support they need you think is the best way to make sure it happens. >> thank you. >> thank you, again. and the rest of the staff for all this
11:04 am
beautiful data one thing i want to add has there by mount academic increase in the process as well as the changes in the students altitudes towards their school. >> very good question we're monitoring the cameras needs our good you're good doing great on the boards by way of. >> teresa smiles a lot if she looks like she's not going to smile make here laugh make her laugh that is good day we've been looking at increases in two things monitoring the increases in attendance as attendance goes up as we're politely interventions and also in gpa
11:05 am
because in as the suspensions go down kids are in school more we're seeing more gains in grade point averages and increases in the academic thanksgiving things and the middle schools we've summarize that data for hard numbers for you okay. >> commissioner norton. >> i wanted to note i appreciate commissioner fewer's question about the 504 i've asked the superintendent is this a reaction to decreasing our disproportion african-american students for education it sounds it is a good thing we're serving the students for what they need and not doing academic interventions for what they
11:06 am
don't need we need to see additional information commissioner fewer asked for but the decrease in the totaled number of suspension and the slight uptick and if i understood you correctly you transcribed to uptick to our staff working closely with site staff that the recording of the data did i understand that correctly. >> yes. we've had a little bit of difficulty with some elementary school that do f suspensions. >> but again, we actually think we don't like to see the suspensions we think that a good thing we terrorist the uptick in the data. >> we're able to say you need
11:07 am
to record we need to record a new system so that recording is the same with the online referrals for classmates you'll classrooms more and more schools are adapting that system and thank goodness you'll see an increase in the interventions and support we're getting an amazing respond to that system we're so thrilled that the schools are looking at that robustly arrest so thank you very much for chief master chief for you and your staff. >> commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell. >> thank you. i want to add my thanks this was complex work that you're doing and it takes a lot to address did multi tier
11:08 am
systems as well as the challenges that the students face in our district and i'm really grateful we have the leadership we do in this division and that we've been able to add staff for you and the systems are coming together so they're starting to make sense and the information we have we're sharing amongst yourselves and the staff is consistent and it is coming from you know one place and we're really trying to build partnerships and the shared training to me has been tremendous that enables us to be more consistent in our work across the board so really wanted to thank you for your continued work i know that is hard we certainly want to provide you with the support to provide. >> students and a lot of the
11:09 am
questions asked by the commissioners i'm equally interested in i think this moment to stop and thank you. is critical it is daily work that we feel last week we're trying to solve for and just making sure that the support you guys need are in place feels better for us under the situations we're not knowing that is enough but you do what i do and the results over the years despite the cuss we've had is tremendous so thank you akee up the great work. >> thank you student delegate katie tang for asking the nuts and bolts question is that the individual teachers or principal
11:10 am
how does it get activated. >> commissioner gordon. >> so each is the bat team has assigned cultures to each school has a culture that is so i understand to them that's the first line of support cultures are working with the schools to implement something called the tiered development inventory a monitoring tool we'll ask 10 kids and staff what are the rules are you been taught them and do you know them and reinforced for being on the right path we calculated help the schools to monitor that they
11:11 am
don't need to tall call but we're there we often get calls in emergencies and sometimes, we'll go to kevin that puts us on it sometimes directly to the bats team leaders yeah, we have this - we've our motto is sort of all in agreement we tend to go after the schools when we get a call and try to problem solve we're getting a high-level of availability. >> thank you very much the same question there's been a lot of under the influence on the interventions and responses to behavorial my question what degree to childhood experience and trauma informed care as part of picture. >> it's a huge part of it so
11:12 am
you know actually kim are you going to take this one or kevin a bunch of people we work closely with dpw and also the staff at the health program and is the nurses have been trained by the doctor i think that kim go ahead i'm just talking. >> (laughter). thanks for that question a huge piece of capacity building and the trauma good lens that all of the nurses and social workers and wellness teams have in thinking about the different supports section 504 was mentioned we're increasing that lens so something that initially might have a kid's bound out of class we're looking forward to changing the tiers to
11:13 am
spreading that lens and the expertise to the classroom teachers we have folks that hold expertise but have to translate that so more teachers are the work in progress >> thank you very much. >> my last question from the data request what are we partnering with the city berry billing. >> all right. i'll take that one we partner with the partner they're a great partner we can do more lab ms. hester we do the internet but this year we expand that for your middle schools our middle schools are we actually have a partnership got special
11:14 am
funding i don't know if i can disclosure that but special/14 by a partner each middle schools has a social media person that gets a stipend all the middle students the goal to receive had hours of instruction thankful plotted out the lessons two staff members and myself haven't rolled it out a meeting in the next couple of days a plan to increase sixth focus on the middle schools. >> thank you very much. >> and just finally my data request obtain dressing it is new having all the piece in place i would like to see the correlations between the
11:15 am
students with the dropout rates as well as graduation raised a true at the time of the success of this how many can i see had those interventions are able to graduate and be successful so just in the future would love to see that data point. >> absolutely. >> before the superintendent makes remarks i know the commissioner vice president haney wanted to be here and thank everyone he was a strong force between behind the resolution and if not out of the country he definitely would have been here i want to communicate his thanks to our team. >> mr. superintendent. >> thank you president muirase i'm glad you mentioned commissioner vice president haney he's in all honesty, commissioner gordon's every now and then. >> i want to a thank achieve
11:16 am
truit you can see assembled a wealth of knowing but talent in the district thank you for the work you're doing is the board knows san francisco it would be the 6 district in 70 california it caught a waiver of no child left behind and a more brisbane way and it is 40 percent of our accountability system in the paftsz folks say why pay attention to this this is part of the work we do and you know having been a teacher for a decade i always know if a student it was not safe and secure in the classroom it didn't matter what to my skills were the student wouldn't learn this is a critically important role for the indicators with that, i want to make sure that
11:17 am
an listening not as deeply involved in the work as described because of the questions we're asking and the presentation getting the wrong impression we're looking for data to hold people accountable necessity not true weer saying we absolutely building that everyone in the classroom wants the best for your children every single day but folks need professional development and capacity building to be able to meet the challenging work of educating students in an urban environment that is san francisco we really approaching that work very much from a prospective to build capacity the fact we're partnering with ucsf and a f t around the maturing agreeable types of professional development speaks
11:18 am
to the authenticity so i want to make sure we understand that is where we're going in terms of the coming attractions i want to paint the picture it is important to understand the broader picture beyond the family support division so we absolutely are using data in a much more statistic way than before as we rolled out the student synergy our chief of the structural technology are working across the division to ramp of synergy to have a subpoena try to keep track of the data in the coming months and years we'll see us middle-income family as long as
11:19 am
we have a laptop initiative last year the secondary indicators received a district issued devices this year we're getting our elementary schools teachers with a device that gives the folks the technology to enter the technology it is important if you think back about the work that chief bryant and her team about the earliest years we're identify the early warning indicators that tliflz where we need to intervention at an early age to make sure the students have the support ms. only powerful if you have the data and accurate data to make the interventions as students move up we have indicators at every transition grade and think about the day the city of san francisco the voters of san francisco have voted to
11:20 am
reauthorize our children's fund and our public education enrichment fund part of that infrastructure is our children and families we're working so closely with our city and county partners based on oracles for the district our contribution is very clean and robust day we can identify students that not only are on our list of students we're providing additional information now partner with the eye arrangements with the city participates if in their involved with the city in any way, shape, or form we have a fuller picture of the students and not duplicating or being redundant so this in a long-winded way we're getting better at identifying our student and what the interventions and their research based and their professionally
11:21 am
administered through our questions commissioners around specify kits of data the team is asking we're looking forward to sharing that with the board of education and the communities i'll says that once again it is not booster full it is the reality i squall it like i see that san francisco is leading the country in that kind of approach for the entire child and because of people that are presenting here this evening because of the bold statement and policy position this board of education has taken you've given us the cover to go out and do the capacity but interrupting the pipeline trained that so many other cities are dealing with i want to thank the team and the boards for this important work. >> thank you mrvnt appreciate all our efforts.
11:22 am
>> okay. that concludes item m and new m consent calendar resolution nun and item o votes on the consent calendar it was moved and seconded. >> ms. casco and ms. chin. >> mr. tomato tar. >> commissioner fewer ms. mendoza-mcdonnell arrest moreno arrest plummeting your minnesota. >> dr. murase. >> you thank you very much we're on consent calendar resolution sound proof for board immediate action 3 items that were sound proof package 16, hundred 20 and h 24. >> so i sound proof k-11 and k 13 on packages hundred 16 and 130. >> i'm just announcing i'm not
11:23 am
going to support those the partner we've chosen to work with i'm not happy with the acts of this partner and the school district as built the exercise to assist our function internally and if we have to go outside there are other partners better suited so i don't intend to support either of those contracts. >> president muirase. >> thank you. i would have sound proof those two if to the sound proof by commissioner norton i've talked about this with the deputy stunt and a year ago we've raised those concerns i appreciate the memo but have concerns all to bring up so the
11:24 am
one is that we so at this time i'd prefer to find a more appropriate vendors maybe the community talk about the our concerns about this vendor particular but i also and particularly interested in that the whole board needs to talk about that at the time political acts we are taken here and objections to that some of us raised those questions there are seems to be a strong coincidence we have the same concerns about the actions taken at the time, however, while i - do not want staff to instruct people in the
11:25 am
district to do something because think or a couple of members raised political concerns i think that my response to the memo that came to us was that at the very least nothing has been said no school understand there is a concern that the government level i think that is not adequate i think that is something that the staff has a responsibility to wring up those concerns further i have to honestly say, i think that the explanation about the k 13 what which is in you read the memo that appears to say a bunch of school principals kind of just simultaneously decided to do this together so in terms of
11:26 am
even though i don't think that was intentional to go against some of the concerns raised by board members this kind of thing a group put together from a number of schools requires the central office facilitation it not only the individual schools but the administration in some form 0 done the line that mass ignored the concerns by the board and so i'm not going to be supporting this and hope you'll do a betters job in the future i'm okay to lose a vote but not okay for the concerns to be not aired and not followed up on as we asked them to be. >> superintendent. >> every year so thank you commissioner wynns i want to make sure we're clear that the boards did not circle address
11:27 am
concerns of a pilot nature non-structural with our principal i take full responsibilities with that said, the particularly vendors ensz in the k resolution has an about vendors we've had a prosperous relationship with well over 7 to 8 years with the central feature in our school improvements grants has helped to develop the capacity and services quite frankly without question very valuable to us i take full responsibility for that with that said, interests a number of capacity building activities that are take place in the middle schools and which middle schools in particular have identified a need to build air leadership teams and the
11:28 am
organized is relying well sued for the development of the leadership team capability to move the structural programs for the schools those are site based decision to the leadership teams are using the principal salesforce grant and using a small open on of that money mines that is more this year and a phasing out of next year i want to make sure with the principals are not involved i take full responsibility to the board i apologize if there was a congregation of a conversation that is not a conversation i was directed to have i want to clarify that for everyone. >> just for one second i do want to say i appreciate that and i do wanted to
11:29 am
respectfully say that this an area i think cross the lines between instruction and governance we basically have a had a long term relationship with an organization that we recommend to use startling and recommended to our schools as a school implements farther and that a member of the organizations thought a way to improve that to prioritize that and that's not purely on structural issue we need to talk about that. >> i have commissioner fewer and commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell and commissioner norton. >> thank you president muirase so when i'm landmarking this my questions is this vendor were
11:30 am
they written into this grant we received so is it i mean they're not written into the grant you know so actually this grant comic to any vendors. >> got it. >> so you know i think the commissioners turned out an interesting dialogue and conversation i'm sort of wondering if we don't have our own capacity in house to do this kind of work i feel like we've been working on this type of work and hired some of the best and brightest folks and folks have been doing this type of works in previous positions we've not been doing this for awhile do we have a in house capacity it is better to do it in house there is sustainability
11:31 am
and people with the grant is up you can refer back to or they know the historic context of the school although i'm not going to oppose this but i would really like it to be deputy superintendant to really talk about maybe looking at about developing ore own expertise we done fabulous work i think the restraint says wear leading the nation in much of the work we've been actively working this kind of work in schools and getting good results bayshore around this type of work i'm encouraged us to look at more in house and this type of vendor actively my person opinion this vendor may side very, very good work but needs to understand that also,
11:32 am
if you voice something piloting that is not aligned or offends members of the board we're the ones that sign off on the budgeted i budget we're the ones that do the hire and still in favor in favor of i have no problem with the work but hope we can actually have our own in house folks i think we learn it is sort of building also a capacity in leadership with in our district we can always use and draw from i'll encourage us to do that so thank you. >> superintendent carranza. >> thank you president muirase we're happy with the capacity
11:33 am
we're building across the district i mentioned a release moderately for that reason we're building our capacity, however, i'll be remiss if i didn't mention this particular year we have ambitious plans for the teachers to build capacity we choose to make sure that teachers stayed in classrooms position because of the teacher shortage and our goals of having the classrooms staffed maybe an opportunity we're able to identify some new hires that some people will be able to be released into those positions to support this continued development it definitely on our radar to build the support to our teachers we're absolutely on the same page with you. >> commissioner
11:34 am
mendoza-mcdonnell and . >> i want to respect or my colleagues positions that was not my experience with partners in school innovation i wanted to talk about a capacity of the partners that was the whole idea of bringing up them into our schools i've been you know deeply combaemdz that the middle schools work because of the large grant we've received and principal after principal have really embraced with partners has done in their schools and in some of the most challenging schools through their support they've felt confidence they've seldom gotten the opportunity to make decisions around how to as
11:35 am
a very generous hundred thousand dollars towards what is important for their schools i think the demonstration there are multiple schools that wanted to do the training that t s i provides is important to acknowledge i wanted to caution us on making judgements an organization that have interacted our schools because something was said by a staff member or ed who should comfortable be able to support things we don't necessarily agree or disagree with that's part of our process i think i worry about shutting organizations that can't support
11:36 am
different things that are happening in the district we don't always agree on things happening in the district that sets an odd precedence o precedence because of political reasons because of the work they do for the children in our schools alongside our teachers and so this is a little bit disturbing to me that that is how we're coming at this so i want eventually have their work make in their imprint and saying as the superintendent planted but continue to keep their capacity building in the trust they've betsy carmichael with our schools intact as long as our schools ask for it. >> if this is no further comment i'd like to take the
11:37 am
roll call vote on the two sound proof items. >> ms. chin mr. at that time, other ms. fewer. >> ms. norton. >> no. >> mr. walton. >> ms. wynns. >> no. >> president muirase. >> 5 i's 4 i's excuse me. >> there is other item that was sound proof ms. wynns. >> i didn't see mr. walton's appointment we received an e-mail about this i don't read until you were here but i do want to say this i appreciate the e-mail and the explanation about the reduce amount i wanted to say my concerns about the
11:38 am
total amount of money on translations remain bus i don't i haven't received the kind of data i've asked for about about the specification the cost benefit analysis data, the data within of the not this contract but the last time we voted on one of those we were told that one of the barriers to using our own staff and adequately hiring for the multiply i e p i've asked for data could i see if that is happening in the languages because the numbers we were suggested seem very, very high about the same language going on at the same time and i understand the specific expertise how much do we need
11:39 am
trarptsdz that needs to be done by sitting down and talking to people thank you for staying since our presentation all the information i think so a great deal of work i appreciate is coming through chief truit i think i need the opportunity to explore this beyond it and have concerns just a lot of money thank you. >> commissioner fewer with the increase in the 504s does it require a translation thing on the form is there an increase in cost that that.
11:40 am
>> if parents of a child with a 504 plan requested translation absolutely that requires transcriptions as angie p requires translation and commissioner i'll look at the data that we've sent you before and i know that was kind of unfinished we started data analysis and went into the fiscal year analysis we came up with that reduction it is our best estimate but you and i can look at the numbers with melanie and lae man he's been crutching numbers constantly that's how we arrived i apologize that e-mail went to you so late melody remind me, you sent the translation message i said no
11:41 am
so i apologize for that not coming to - >> understand how much work you were doing i'm going to vote for this i think we need to explore that further and more kind of grand last year issues not only the number but what is happening in the meetings or the requirements we had the issue about certain things were translated and needs to be translated over and over again. >> we're still having this conversation with legal. >> thank you. >> ms. casco roll call vote on the separate arre last year ms. chin. >> commissioner fewer matt haney berkley and mr. walton and dr.

how this might effect students in the military and other things and so i'm interested i epic we've railway had students from middle school to hopefully i don't encourage that i understood that the united states militaries had actually mentioned high school in their requirements not just the diplomas i don't know that is true and we've decided private universities and we believe that private universities don't care but if anyone has information about the research since we get inquires about others post secondary tints besides the public of the united states in california i'd like to have that when 33 people ask me. >> commissioner fewer.
