history of the largest state exported institutionalization of sexual slavery a holocaust of women an example of jerntd violence during the war by studying the comforted women we open up the entire public of jerntd violence of domestic violence of sexual violence and the relationship to military but openly up this top and study the history ocher do the studies of history leads to the presents and the future by studying the issue of the confront o comfortable women and talking about the gender violence during the war and how that gender violence relates to other areas we allow our students an understanding and analysis that we wouldn't get in
11:33 am
other areas it allows them to look at the topic in a dispassionate way that is all not been able to only talking about what happens to them by doing that they can then extrapolate and understand the implementations for themselves for and pa for their society thanks. >> thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> hello, i'm michael wong a member of veterans for peace the director for children outreach and part of the comfortable women justice coalition the reason that this is important is because the comfortable women established an international law the precedence that rape and sex call trafficking during war is a crime because the could comfort

11:35 am
into the curriculum a much more comprehensive study of the world war ii many years ago when i was in high school the history class what was taught by a coach and the histories class went like this ever person with read a paragraph when i went to college world history was western civilization this kind of i think complete and biased curriculum i think exists in proving places like san francisco i think you should devote considerable time and consider part of our curriculum is educating the people on world war ii but also, we should american public education so do a better job of covering the designation of native people the institutionalization of slafrt and our shiem full history in
11:36 am
month part of worlds i ask you to pass and enact this but to make history in this city what it should be throughout of world. >> thank you very much no future speaker cards by way of introduction this is primary about, about educate our adult staff in the deduct u school district about the signs and resources for addressing human trafficking i want to note that the mayors task force in had you had occasion a report that document the six months from july one to december 2014200 and 91 survivors of human trafficking in san francisco for a 6 month period and many of the cases involve children many of them involve foster youth and they've tried to
11:37 am
capture the vulnerable port of population. >> i said ms. fewer as additional language for considered. >> thank you dr. murase that is angle opportune times to include young men and women should know there are women we want to as speaker said a woman spoke out that's why we're recognizing and the international tribal has recognized this as a form of fads infanticide and has a great context to so the amendment i'd like to put forwards i'd like to add a couple of inserts further
11:38 am
be it resolved that the superintendent and district staff in their i'd like to say create a task force with community experts to incorporate and education component and so this is the only thing i'd like to add into that and then i respectfully ask that we would hear the results of the progress of this in the curriculum meeting probably sometime maybe in february a february meeting just so to see how we're progressing. >> did any colleagues get that i can read it. >> the supreme court and district staff create a task force of experts to incorporate an educational components of the history of conference of women under the japanese military and the curriculum to kathy the
11:39 am
community about the harmful effects of the human trafficking and protecting the youth community if sexual exploitation in travks. >> commissioner fewer would the task force make recommendations to the district. >> no, i think that works in collaboration so everyone has ownership but the task force worked together with the community experts the reason i think the community experts have a sensitivity to the subject matter they know i think their expertise how to present this curriculum to the age group and make it age appropriate and also to present the curriculum in a way non-boys but states the facts and amble appropriate frankly to our middle and high
11:40 am
school students. >> superintendent carranza. >> great, thank you commissioners if i could just you know we'll have on our agenda a discussion about curriculum if i could suggest that the wording be all of the evidence in consultation with district staff so we fully collaborate with the experts in the community but it is owners by the district i want the district staff to write the curriculum with the experts it is an important change in the advisory committee of the communication of the community experts. >> sure i think that is great i wanted to know that whatever any budgetary implementations to add that one line in. >> under mr. superintendent repeat language our suggesting.
11:41 am
>> i think that the language that commissioner fewer proposed was fine instead we'll just insert in consultation with community experts. >> okay. >> truth is trying to say that the supreme court and district staff creates a task force to work in consultation to incorporate an educational component you're absolutely right we own our own curriculum that's fine if my colleague agree. >> i'm happy to accept the amended language thank you, commissioner fewer and now there are concerned about the budget analysis commissioner wynns. >> thank you i wanted to i have two questions about the amendment that was just accepted to so i this puts
11:42 am
me in mind of the work for guidelines for the curriculum work with the community organizations so long as the supreme court is happy www a task force is not particularly independence my preference to say if he wanted to say that to say might include a task force are whatever structure is agreed on i think it is age specific. >> so i'll just say that, however, the authors this is a accepted this but my question when is maybe opposite of others about the fiscal year analysis i read that was sent to me this afternoon most the money is for train so i'm not specific as far
11:43 am
as i remember as far as what the costs is just says staff training so and it is so it is mostly more hiring someone just to do this training so i'm kind of a little bit surprised by that i don't know if this is necessarily to have a person presuming doing most of training what kind we're not undergo the institutionalized trainer on this curriculum year by year are we my question aren't we're going i have to develop the train i understand that assess things but we have professional development times set aside every year we focus on different things to which is one reason why there is not i'm presuming
11:44 am
not money set aside for substitutes so people what leaf their classes but presume we're could this sometime in our regular professional time could someone tell me and this is a place holder we'll not necessarily have a full-time person that will permanently do this. >> mr. superintendent. >> thank you thank you, president murray is a so commissioners this as noted in the resolution are staff view on this collectively is that there are a couple of layers one
11:45 am
is that because this particular training is very broad based including references to every school site and classroom teachers in addition to certificate of employees that are focused on wellness staff because that training participate within the scope is so board we do feel there's needs to be additional resources to implement that train so right now there is a gap in our staffer capacity to provide to develop and provide and chiropractor broad basis mandatory training in order to meet the needs of that resolution at this time given what is and not in place that
11:46 am
the best solution would be hiring a staff member actually within the human resources department as 421 a personnel analyst a classification we're thinking of having said that, that individual could also do work on providing other broad based mandatory training for example, training ton mandatory reporting or sexual harassments for staff or others forms of broad based train that in fairness is a bits of a gap we have to every time there is a particular content module that comes up as something that needs to be delivered to multiply staff including thousands of staff we have to look at the departments that could be involved and make a in some ways
11:47 am
i am advice a solution not ideal in general when this resolution was drafted in the current form we thought the best solution to this situation which will help us in terms of other contents would be to create a dedicated staff possession that will cooperate and implement that. >> so to a finer points we're not talking about that cost all being about what is in this resolution; right? so contrary to our thing oh, it will cost sixth less than tha than identified for this resolution to be implemented and somewhere a mandatory training director or whatever this person cost is
11:48 am
identified here so be some kind of it will be built into next year's budget i presume we're into the budget of the current year; right? >> that's correct but you have to look at in two ways the train of adults the other curriculum development in the integration we feel strongly we can do with that an existing staff but a notion of interrelated opportunities and needs train for adults what is germane there are indicators that our staff should be trained open to identify when children maybe in danger or maybe you know recruited to be trafficked we think is critically important for our staff to be trained on. >> i have a question commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell and commissioner fewer.
11:49 am
>> on this one 20 we're looking at a personnel analyst that will be doing the training are cooperating the training smells this is a high-level enough to do the training. >> we think this person will cooperate the train whether this involves online training or cascading the comments throw in person structures all that that to be frankly determined commissioners but the principle will take the contact that is appropriate some of which may exist now and some needs to be developed including the consultation with the sunset
11:50 am
experts and organized the delivery of the in services or the professional development in a lot of ways i think the challenge is as much about the roll out of training the logistics the organize and is recordkeeping to make sure that all of the again thousands of paternities have discussed - successfully passed and completed the train as about delivering the content per say so really the fulfills emphasis is about the coordination and okay. and on the so the health curriculum is r curriculum is 45 thousand on one time and the annual 17 thousand what is that? piece of it because the 37 plus the 25 is the curriculum total so what part is the unanimous
11:51 am
and what part of one time >> commissioners, if you look at the moab memo i want to thank kim the executive director of the school programs did it thorough job of detailing the cost of related to the school health curriculum to help the curriculum so this is a little bit complicated if you see on the second and third pages of memo by way of for members of the public who, who are here there is copies of document referred to in they're available in the foyer so the memo in ms. coats analysis indicates that specific items related to the elementary school and middle middle and high school curriculum in the parse of the memo on page two and three
11:52 am
detailing the specific costs there are a total cost items this has to do with with training and/or curriculum and development those personnel costs and the first two are one time costs so extend days for health education for health educators for curriculum and professional development that's the first one the second one is to partner with cbo's to collaborate with health assessor those are one time costs and the items 3, 4 and 5 within the personnel section are annual costs so those are annual workshops for health educators and then the last section are non-neglect costs so the startup
11:53 am
costs is $20,000 for a curriculum materials and in year 2 and i don't understand that we estimate that would require 5 thousand dollars every year to replenish those materials those are the specific items that has to do with with the health curriculum and summary table on the last part of the memo as a health curriculum totaled 682 it thousand dollars in the firefighter and 42 and one time is he 17 in reoccurring years. >> got it we're only do a one year so the expectation that every year this will grow are that this would capitalized to more teachers i'm assumeing it is actually, i shouldn't assume
11:54 am
that but for training for the teachers they get once a year and set to do this piece every year or you know what is this looking like going forward and before you answer that can i ask why this didn't go to budget we wouldn't have the resolution that has the fiscal impact brought to a board meeting would you tell us undergo budget why are we having that budget discussion for the first not a huge ticket item but once we pass this presuming will be one we'll have to continue to concur every year and it didn't seem like we are totally clear on what it is we're going to be needing to side going forward. >> happy to answer that question i've been working with
11:55 am
staff on this resolution in my communications with staff i was told it will not a one significant budgetary impact that was not correct and once we adopt a regular process for over resolution i anticipate this kind of thing will not happen because it is supposed to happen the resolution goes to mr. steel who gets to the right staff to review because this was introduced in august and we just received this analysis tonight i agree i apologize but i think it speaks to the needs for a stricter process for how resolutions are examined let's see commissioner mendosa-mcdonnell anything further. >> i agree there maybe differences in how resolutions
11:56 am
come forward but i think historically we've not brought forward a resolution about the discussion of the impacts this makes me uncomfortable we're having such a big discussion we're just now talking about this not how especially on the budgets piece we've done things in the past so if staff is now telling us that has a budget interact this should have come to biggest first, i want to be clear about that you know this is again, a one year proposal and we want to see this be extended and continue but $200,000 a year presumably and not anglo what the growth is going to be and who else meetings needs to be trained and how it will be implement in the
11:57 am
first year? not the right way i'm uncomfortable voting on this tonight. >> and want to clarify one point recently the legislation did require some of this so whether this resolution was passed or not we'd concur those experiences; is that correct. >> yeah. that's correct president murase we noted in the first page the memo so i'm sorry, i should have mentioned before we calling your attention before the health curriculum development section so we did add a note that most of costs related to the health curriculum the $62,000 we think lease related to curriculum for middle school and high school students
11:58 am
that those are the subject in large part of recent enacted legislation ab i'm going to forget the actual bill title but there was an assembly bill and senate bill that was passed eased signed that go into effect in january that address some new requirement for sex education material and information about sex trafficking and sexual assault so some of the costs are new requirements i'm sure that i'm not sure that is a president murase said those costs we're in a position to need additional staff resources for those activities >> do we know what those costs
11:59 am
are. >> if you look at through the memo so the last page the health curriculum component of the total costs the total costs for the first year of the implementation of the resolution we estimate at one hundred $82,000 one for the staff training that is in the resolution it is calls for in the resolution and that's what we were talking about the additional new staff position to cooperate that training and others module train for staff and the second part the health curriculum that is, we estimate to costs $662,000 in this memo broke down the components for
12:00 pm
elementary school in every case a secondary student curriculum within that $62,000 let's say roughly 2/3rd's this is a little bit of on estimate if we thought about the $62,000 reach all grade level elementary school middle and high school the state laws that were placing the requirements on district to provide curriculum to secondary grades 5 through telephone some portions of the $62,000 inform provide for anyway, the rest is not explicitly required by the new state law. >> i have commissioner tour-sarkissian and commissioner walton. >> i also want to yeah, he actually at the meeting
12:01 pm
requiring requesting go to budget a budgetary consideration at the time of the meeting there was a conversation about we could have it at the same time as we're deliberating but i see this is basically a all around the health curriculum i'm wondering have we done in analysis how those resources cover the comfort women in incorporating it did we think we ask absorb that into the cutters budget if that's the case it's understandable, however, we'll pay the presidio to participate with us in the budget i've wondering who are the cabo san lucas we're contracting that the 5 thousand dollars each and is cabo san lucas - the combobz
12:02 pm
cabo san lucas cbo i have a question the main question about how the money that it might take the resources to incorporate a components of comfortable women did it include that if we're in agreement for there is an opportune time to relate the two it gives us a historical context. >> so commissioners related to turf question about the curriculum for comfort women the curriculum instruction brent
12:03 pm
stevens believes that can be developed within the existing resources and staff capacity of the c n i history curriculum offices so thankful explicitly said. >> they could absorb that okay this is a great i feel like when we ask for an update we'll ask for an update own the earth curriculum and ask about the did you want of comfortable women incorporating it into the components so that's fine hates great what into the cvs. >> i'm scanning ms. coats is here that particular answer to that question i don't have commissioners so i believe i know that kevin truit is out of town as well. >> he's out of town that's
12:04 pm
fine we'll follow-up with that, i feel in the boards decides to pass that resolution with this current budget he can give me that answer. >> commissioner walton. >> i want to add context for commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell this is awe typical at the curriculum meeting the budget committee a was moved because labor day this resolution in terms of what is for the curriculum the budget chair was at the meager and we alexander agreed to put that with a positive recommendation depending on the budget analysis we got to the board meeting for today like commissioner fewer statistics we have conversation tonight about the budget implementations we want to give
12:05 pm
you a little bit of context of the process but you're right a typical the conversation was had and had the budget chair in attendance that posted it forward under the guidelines. >> commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell. >> so it was my understanding the budget chair was told interest there would be no implications so she may have respond to get this moving he wanted to go back to the resolution thank you for the context i do want to get back to the resolution quickly i appreciate that this is being put forward a conversation that niece to be had our young people need to have that more and more and our adults need to find ways to talk about this very clearly we want to appreciate that the history of comfortable women is
12:06 pm
included in it that there is a historical piece to this for me personally it is something that my 89-year-old mother has not talked about until recently and during the times she was 5 until until a teenager her father hit here with a rice budgeted whatever the trips and mothering my mother and all her sisters my mother didn't have the ability to talk about it until recently this is a conversation that sorry that my mother had with my son and my son is a senior in high school i find it unfortunate that we haven't been able to have this conversation particularly with our boys and
12:07 pm
for him to understand the challenges that many of our women through before and during and now it is a lot to be said so i wanted to thank you dr. murase it is an important conversation to have and i think florida there is a lot of history that needs to be brought forward and a lot of recollection for the handful of women that remain not counting the hundreds of thousands that are part of this history that we have put aside for a very long time you never know which women have experienced what and until they finally have enough nerve and settled with themselves to have this conversation what with my mom did with many i son was this
12:08 pm
summer i hope that many of our young people have an opportunity to understand better because that is an important part of our history and comfortable women are so many are my own personal heros so i'm pleased that is going to be put into in resolution he support the task force components of it i do want to see we're providing the kind of curriculum that we are committing ourselves do the budget challenge i'd like to see as parts of task force put back for a better understanding of what this will actually take to implement i will be supporting the
12:09 pm
resolution in its current state. >> all right. before we move to vote we want to reread the amendment to make sure we're on the on the same page the second to tbe it therefore resolved. >> in terms of the task force how exactly will be completion of this amendment how will it look like we mentioned the importance the task force so would it mean that we would have to extend the budget to include for training for the task force are mean wear individually picking people from the pool of training to form the task force. >> if i may thank you for the question student delegate report the task force will be made up of people doing the work that
12:10 pm
have knowledge of the comfortable women i think with we passed our ethics study resolution i heard strongly from the students i am hearing the truth about the history of my family of my ann stares if we don't talk about in an educational environment we talk about the task force that will be made up the people that studied this and perhaps scholars and i think that we can draw from real life experiences of people if we were to incorporate it into curriculum for example, the task force will say our personal serious appropriate and which personal story and voices of those women are appropriate to put into this curriculum those are the people
12:11 pm
that we would work with on this task force people that have deep knowledge of subject area i don't think that we have maybe that in house deep knowledge of what happens and the true historic facts anybody we present to our students should be the truth 0 i think we'll need to call upon experts in the fields that studied this and also our curriculum folks to see what is age appropriate and what is appropriate for that this age i mean to in the language in which we express it into able to i guess also relate the experiences of those women that were comfortable women that will be what the task force is made up of does that answer your question. >> student delegate.
12:12 pm
>> if i may it will be in the ethic studies curriculum. >> i'm going i don't think so everyone has to actually take a worlds history class that is parts of world history a ethic studies we couldn't capture all the students history class is required so i'm imagine it will be incorporated into that somewhere thank you. >> all right. no further discussion i'd like to rereaders the amendment be it therefore resolved. >> further be it resolved, that the superintendent and district staff create a task force with community experts to work in consultation to incorporate and educational components of the hefty of comfortable women ever world war ii under the japanese military in it's curriculum to dedicate the effects for the modern day context for the purpose of
12:13 pm

thank you. >> so superintendmt carranza and commissioners i'm jeremy a math teacher for 12 years at lowell high school i have also been a member the blue shield health plan for the same amount of time now i looked at you sent out the open enrollment you're familiar with the brochure
12:17 pm
2006 and the i'm quite concerned because the blue shield's premiums have gone up 11.5 percent that's on part of the problem 93 to 97 percent of the increase has been passed there to the teacher that puts an unfair burden on us at the momentum we are on a financial precipice in san francisco i've given you specifics category one for a similar employee that is increased from 944 to 17 hundred so that's increased by 678.82 percent for a single person that about $750
12:18 pm
per year category 2 teacher premiums that is me employing would be person roughly 6 thousand to 76 hundred. >> that's 16g hundred dollars approximately a 23 percent yearly increase. >> that is pretty well wiped a major part of the race negotiated as i said but all the categories the sf usd premium are one hundred 38 for the category one single teacher 78 percent for me 2 percent for you
12:19 pm
employee plus one person 23 percent there for your one .4 increase for you and the category 3 which is a family employed plus two or more 11 thousand 8 hundred to $14,000 200 that's a 20 percent yearly increase your premium the part you contribute has gone up 1 hundred and 37 that's 1.36. as i said we work for you i feel that is unfair okay. it is completely disproportionate please i'm now open enrollment
12:20 pm
can i ask you to adjust your race for blue shield if you can't do that okay. then reopen the contracts so that blue shield members are not getting this treatment which i think is very unfair thank you very much >> thank you, sir perhaps we can refer this to the upcoming personnel meeting superintendent carranza. >> i'm sorry is there a congregation. >> it is a city negotiated agreement because the school district is under civil service you can have a discussion but we're part of a larger negotiated priced on blue shield
12:21 pm
thank you sdmenz. >> richard. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> good evening my name is a richard i'm san francisco residents the proud parents of a soda congratulate and district employee since 1980 i'm a strong advocate for vision zero and the california's core standards however, i'm concerned about the future of public education and it's crucial roll in our democracy i think this is fair to say we support the goals assessing access and exited and student achievement and accountability those goals are a constant in my 35 years as we move forward not forgot area history no child
12:22 pm
left behind is a minimum impact how we taught in the elementary schools starting a george washington and taylor we encouraged the students to sole their own problems to find and manage information to organize themselves themselves into teams and tackle new challenges we give your students a chance an equal funds opportunities. an education did we make mistakes yes did we learn if our mistakes he hope so i feel we're at the crossroads as a classmate teacher i'm share those 3 questions. >> in the future how will the district recruits, prepare and remain and regard it's teachers?
12:23 pm
secondly, to evaluate and recognize students success what theoretic tools and methods to compliment and possible to plants high stakes 12 yes our students will continue to do better i'm with the superintendent carranza on that and finally therefore, be it resolved for the corporations and others that donate what we we do to put pressure on the representatives for the adequate funding we're continuing to do what we can to insure we have talented visionary teachers and rigorous schools for all our children thank you >> thank you, mr. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> (clapping). >> didn't go school board. >> thank you for the opportunity to speaker to you briefly i wanted to addresses
12:24 pm
some of you know i've been representing the voices of several hundred residents in current opposition to the so-called final plan for the france square feet key project i want to cover a few points and we've seebd what we believe is relevant information the boards should consider before this vote or otherwise number one there is no convince and that is because key stakeholders were clued from the process in the very beginning oversee stakeholders included homeownership's and residents and attendance the elderly sick and people for whom english was a second language secondly, immediately adjacent
12:25 pm
residents clearly expressed their voice but disregard and third more recently a std group two members who shared the views we have those two members members were ousted from the group if so not a fair process we presented an alternatives proposal to the groibz committee we don't this they have the full opportunity to look at this proposal we urge them to do so i think that and i do said this in overwhelms to various commissioners i'll say it to all ever you i believe this issue is well beyond what you puts at this site it going to trains and accountable ability i ask you not issue a permit or allow one without the vote from the school

12:28 pm
on october 1st, the district san francisco unified school district announced they'll suspend general contractors subcontractor prequalification for 2016 and this has caused my organization as well as the san francisco building constructions trades council of great concern i have a couple of statements in my work as a prevailing what this and -- excuse-me. i have a cold and experience officer to have an opportunity to speak with the workers and do job interviews i want to share exerts from the workers he interviewed think school projects matt felt his job i'll not name
12:29 pm
schools matt felt his job was a correct faulty installation he was constructed by the owner to open up a injunction box in the ceiling he was shocked and appalled to see high vogue and fire wire and cable in the same injunction box and combining those function is extremely hazardous and creates seriously compromises the communication and life safety with the association of wire and cable when matt pointed out they needed to be separated sam said the owner said no time for that no inspections here. >> matt experienced other training and the understanding the electrical system installed
12:30 pm
by others he discovered other things and sections broken with the weight of the 60 feet because of wire that had been pulled together in the same cafe many of the floors and pictures installed have seismic safety clip and not building code they were held up the the ceiling frame human resources here's a second statement i have several more this job was a mess literally it was worse than usual but the electrical violations in the ceiling had been installed and the injunction box when he brought the j boxed to my aspire i said it would be supported
12:31 pm
later when later they installed the tiles indicating the work with i think complete the injunction boxed were not installed correctly and in a building where kids are integrated so example like this i follow-up trying to get the inspectors reports and unfortunately, i of the not pleased with the response from the contracts folks at the district they tell me inspection don't exist at the schools i did the due diligence and got to the bottom two things won their needs to be more accountability there needs to be inspection reports and new qualification that contract has contracts currently working in san francisco unified school
12:32 pm
district and electrical contractors it is not a pre-qualified electrical subcontractor so my organization feels strongly that this policy was required for the qualification a new run statistics not lease expand to say projects that incorporated things like know. >> i appreciate that. >> this is for the record. >> we will now proceed with the agendas we were at the consent calendar voted on the consent calendar that was there is a motion and a second ms. casco roll call vote. >> ms. chin mr. totiano ms. fewer mr. haney ms. mendoza-mcdonnell except for item 1, 2, 3, 4 and

12:34 pm
significance amount for work that is already done from 2014. >> mr. superintendent. >> thank you, commissioners i'd like to ask dr. blanco if she could clarify. >> the department of the mental health submitted their bids late so it grant we extend them and only so much has accrues for the outstanding bills we set up this year to pay last year's bills. >> those funds were available and you had to have them set up to get paid for last year arrest where did those funds come from. >> other funds we have to transfer in because it as grants but it is not a sufficient amount of money to pay all the bills when we think that the
12:35 pm
bills have come in to the amount we'll use the money to pay others mental health costs for the schools so those bills came a after the fact and not until october and i guess what i'm trying to upstairs we have stated funds we had fund but not sufficient we had to have funds come from other places that safer the looins we paid for services that were rendered previously with funds that we maternity have so my concerns we didn't have the funds the services were provided and now we're looking for the money so if you're telling me we have the money we had to set is aside we
12:36 pm
knew the services would be provided and paid for it mates e that's one thing if you're telling me the services were provided we have to look for the funds and take the money from other places because we didn't pay the bills if 2014 or september when they came in then he just want to understand that because this is my worry we have services that are provided to us without the funds in place in order to pay for them. >> those are educational mental health services we pay them with non-public schools and for children that wouldn't be inevitable in medi-cal so this is generally the way it works to send us the bills in the best
12:37 pm
case scenario we would have use the money from other places but our bills for services we search warrant would have had to be more responsible. >> what happens to this year's bills and where are the funds to make sure we take care of those bills i i don't imagine this will be different. >> we're going to make surely they have the bills in a knows manner. >> let's see commissioner fewer has in the item sound proof. >> this is a want to let you know this is fabulous my concern i didn't see anything attached the support plan calls for a
12:38 pm
couple of things a third party consultant i'm wondering are we observing that in the it funding or an additional costs at the this year's budget cycle. >> hi good evening thank you any additional costs for support whether if so the third party support for data congratulation it's been factored into the current it budgets. >> the support plan the it project manager and teacher traimg e training and white-glove service do we have a fiscal analysis how much did it costs if you don't have it figure now i assume you've got to money for it and nothing will be retroactive i think that then

1:06 pm
within substance abuse methadone services so we don't want to have a break in services while we are completing the process of determining the best service mix to meet the requirements of the affordable care act and then a recent federal waiver that was given to california with respect to how the substance abuse services are organized. >> okay. thank you very much. >> i see no questions, mr. rose, sorry supervisor, taning? >> thank you. i don't see any problems with this particular resolution. but i just wanted to see if you might also talk a little bit more high level in terms of you know the changes coming under with the aca. i know that we are granting your extension to figure out how some of the local programs can operate, given some of the changes with the aca. and so i don't know if you want to speak about the efforts in that. >> so the department of public
1:07 pm
health spent a couple of years, more than than and it is ongoing. and we are configuring our civil services in order to create, the san francisco health network, which is an integrated service, delivery system. so that you could choose the health network as your provider, and your delivery system. and so although the work was very much internal. and but we have over 250 million dollars worth of contract services, and so now we are doing, that process, to see how those services can best support the civil service clinics and specifically the primary care clinics. so we are doing focus groups. and we know what some of the, and we know that there are specific requirements, for example, under aca. eventually, you will be, reimbursed, based on out comes that will not just be on the number of units delivered. and we have to do, utilization
1:08 pm
review and there is a lot of case management and care coordination, that we don't have the capacity within just the civil service to insure that that is spread throughout the system, but we want everyone to have care management. so how do we best utilize the contract agencies, and to do that, and what does it mean in terms of changing definitions? changing requirements? and changing maybe, where services are provided. and maybe right now, it is in their own site, but maybe they will be providing groups on sight and in the primary care so that the people don't get lost, as at the get a referral out. and then the state wave, it is a federal waiver that the state of california provided to change how the substance abuse services are delivered. they are trying to achieve parody and insure that the services are stream lined and coordinated. so we are becoming a substance
1:09 pm
abuse plan. like we have a mental health plan as well. so i don't know, if that. >> and i appreciate just, again, very high level of review. kind whaf is to come. and understand that we have to approve thesing extensions so that we can continue to figure it out. >> and also, i will just say you will be getting in the next month, a whole bunch of them. the extension is the outside. we believe that we will have rfps going through the process but we don't know which order, which the outside date. >> great, thank you so much for that. >> okay, mr. rose, could we go to your report please? >> yes. mr. chairman, members of the committee on page, 3 of our report, we note that based on the actual and projected expenditures from july, first to 2010, to 2017, requested not-to-exceed amount of 46.4 million should be reduced by 4
1:10 pm
million, to a total amount of the amount of $41,647,000 and that is on table two of the sxrpt so the recommendations on the bottom of page 4 is to amend the proposed recommendation to reduce the not-to-exceed amount by 4 million. and we recommend that you approve this proposed resolution as amended. >> thank you very much, nr rose. seeing no questions, we will move on to public comment. >> anybody wish to comment on item two? >> (inaudible)
1:11 pm
>> okay, and anybody else wish to comment on item number two? >> seeing none, public comment is closed. okay we have a recommendation by the budget analyst to reduce the not-to-exceed amount. >> yeah, through the chair we make a motion to accept the budget, and to send forward to the full board with the positive recommendation. >> we have a motion by supervisor tang and take that without objection. >> that motion is passed with supervisor mar being absent today. >> and okay, mr. clerk, could you please call item number three? >> item three, resolution approving the amended and restated memo of understanding
1:12 pm
with the metropolitan transportation commission, and other bay area transit agents for the future governor ans and operation of the cliper program through june of 2025. >> thank you very much, and have anybody to speak on this item. >> good morning, and diana sfmta the item before you revises the current memo of understanding between the transportation and the 21 par participating transit agencies in the cliper fair payment system. includes, revisions to the cost allocations and 2.1 million in credit card and banking fees for the cliper purchases, at the ticket vending machines that are absorbed by the agencies, the most significant chance, is the establishment of the eight member, executive board, including representatives from eight agency and mtc. and it will be responsible for evaluating performance goals
1:13 pm
and a work plan and a budget and the approval of all matters suspected to have a fiscal operating impact. under the current mlu and retains, sole authority for all of these. >> it comes for the region to develop the requirements for the next generation, cliper system and will enhance the agencis in this planning process and i am happy to answer any questions. >> supervisor, tang. >> thank you very much. >> over all, i do agree with this change. i wanted to see if you can speak a little bit to the additional cost that mta will be absorbing because of this change? so roughly 730,000 and if you could explain a little bit about, why there is this increase? >> yes. so as a mentioned the majority of that cost, is approximately, $700,000 a year, comes from the inclusion of bart and bta, credit card and banking fees.
1:14 pm
that are associated with their ticket vending machine, purchases for cliper. currently, the mta, our costs for these, at our ticket vending machines in the metro vending machines were already allocated because they were purchased as part of the contract and bta and bart because they added those to the existing tbm and those are operating on the separate gateway and for the gateway, they agree that the costs because they are regional costs because they will be allocated accordingly. and approximately, the $30,000 of the other part of that increase, comes from the agencies agreement to pay a portion of the cliper executive director's position. this is an mtc, position. currently, but, the mlu, allows for that to change at any time that the executive board is interested in making that change. and that reflects about 50
1:15 pm
percent of the salary. and then, mtcs, i am sorry, sfmta 33 percent allocation that have cost. >> thank you. >> and you know, over all, i really agree with the establishing the executive board, that takes more into consideration, all of the various agencies. and i mean, that i know that there are many more that participate and use cliper. but in terms of having it broader than just the mtc, i think that it is actually a really good idea. and this particular mlu, would be extended until, 2025, if approved today. and so i am wondering if you could speak a little bit about, you know, with the up coming potential changes in technology and how it is that we can continue to create a better service and experience for customers that what is this new mlu agreement allow for and how does it effect to achieve that. >> sure. so the mlu itself is extending to 2025, the current contract
1:16 pm
with cubic transportation systems the contract holder for cliper, expires in 2019. so, really those two piece to this mlu, one is the government's portion, which i mentioned establishes an executive board and provides a process for the decision making. and it was the interest of the transit agencies and the mtc to insure that continues passed who ever is the vendor, for the new contract, that is going to be awarded. the appendix b, which is the cost allocation, form law is tied to the current contract with cubit and so it is understood by all of the parties that even though the mlu terms to 2025, we will have to come back to the board of supervisors when the contract is awarded because the changes to the appendix b will require additional approval. >> not so much a question, but i do like that it includes the performance standards, with the
1:17 pm
goals of ex-expanding the electronic payment to all modes of transportation and enhance, access to the customers for the value which i know that we discussed yesterday, about how customers would like to, if they are loading funding on to the card, on-line. if they can do so. and see it, immediately? and establishing consistent fare category and discounts and improving the operation, integration for the system. and i am glad that all of that is in this current mlu. actually kind of surprised that was not in the current one, i am sure that we are learning from the past experiences and making it better for the future. and so, again, over all, and i am very supportive of this, and i want to see how we can continue to improve the customer experience, using clip , or whatever else is to come. >> colleagues, okay, any more questions? >> seeing none, could we go to your report on item three. >> yes, mr. chairman and
1:18 pm
members of the committee, on the bottom of the report, we note that the cliper administrative cost paid by the mta from the fiscal 2011, to 14, was 14 million and and under the proposed third amendment, the mta estimates that they are sure of the cliper program, and the administrative costs will increase by 2.4 million or from 28.1 million to 30.5 million. and that is over the period for july, first 2015, through june, 30, 2019 and, that is shown in table two on page nine of our report and we recommend that you approve this resolution. >> thank you very much, mr. rose. colleagues, no other questions, and we will move on to public comment and anybody wish to comment on three. >> seeing none, public comment is closed. >> supervisor tang? >> all right, take a motion then to approve this resolution, and send it forward with a positive recommendation to the full board. >> okay, a motion by supervisor tang and we can take that
1:19 pm
without objection. >> mr. clerk, could you call item four? >> item four, resolution approving the issuance of the bonds, in the amount not-to-exceed, $7 million to finance and refinance, various capitol facilities owned by the mission resources center llc. >> okay. good morning, thank you for considering the item today, my name is vetty from the controller's office and also, here, in case you have any questions on the project, i have caroline from the mission, economic development agency. representing the applicant. just to give you a background on the proposed issuance that the tax equity and fiscal responsibility act allows the tax exemption of interest on the certain types of debt issued through the california, enterprise, development authority, which is the joint, powers authority to which the city and county of san francisco is a participating member, the authorities are authorized to issue the bonds and debt. and the federal tax law,
1:20 pm
requires that the governing body of the jurisdiction in which the project is located approve the financing, and the project. and after providing the opportunity for dually noticed public hearing before the bonds can be issued on a tax exempt basis. in this case, in the city of san francisco is not obligated for the payments on the bonds and so therefore the approval will no fiscal impact on the city of san francisco. the hearing notices in the san francisco examiner, and the public hearing was held at the office of public finance here at city hall on september third, and no comments from the members of the public were heard. and the purpose of these bonds, in the amount not-to-exceed, $7 million, is to finance and refinance, the cost of acquisition and rehabilitation and improvement, and installation of equipping of the real property and improvements at 2301, mission street, in san francisco, and 21,000, multistory commercial building and which is known as the facilities in the

1:23 pm
say that we agree with the budget analyst recommendation, if you have any questions, i would be happy to answer. >> i guess, i just have one question. we got this about nine months later. so look, in opposition, here, we are stuck with this and it has been done and we are very much backed into the corner and it is not that these things don't occur. but 9 months later. could you --. >> yeah, we realize that this has happened more than once in the past year. and to be honest, there is a new code requirement in chapter 6 that we are required to report to the board within 60 days. and when these and other emergencies happen in the past year, to be fully honest, for the department is more concerned with geting the work engaging the contractors and negotiating the prices performing the work, and it was not a consideration for us to turn around and report to the board, we realize that was an error and, we fully agree with the new policy and the new law. and we have committed to
1:24 pm
meeting that 60 day, and exceeding and bettering that requirement. it is just when these contract and this is the last of athlete that we have had in the past year, when these krts were issued that was not a requirement of law. >> okay. >> i am hearing from you that this is the last one that we will see. >> okay. >> i will take that. >> okay. >> supervisor taning. >> i am not sure if this is a question for you or someone from the sheriff's department, but it appears that the incident had occurred, in august of 2014. the work was completed one year later in 2015. and so i am just wondering what happened during that time frame then? were there no security cameras in the jails one and two. >> no, the sheriff's maintenance staff, as soon as the failure occurred back in august of 2014, they did do some minor repairs just to get it, a radio shack solution to get the basic functionality, but it was not fully compliant
1:25 pm
with the state and federal codes, which is why the public works is engaged to do a more comprehensive repair and so we declared that the emergency in november of 2014 and issued a notice to proceed right away. since november, the work has been ongoing. and we did wrap it all up in august of this past 2015. >> okay. thank you. >> okay, thanks very much, mr. rose, your report on item five? >> yes on page 13 of the report and table one, and that shows a break down of the total contract costs of $1 million, 116,047 and that is for the full design, and repair and upgrade as well as providing the related support services for the electronic security systems, at the jails, one and two. and on the bottom of page, 13. we know that subsequent to this subject and emergency as you know and it has been discussed the board of supervisors
1:26 pm
approved at mendments requiring the emergency, contracts effective on august, first, 2015. that is when the board approved that, and legislation and, if the estimated cost of the emergency exceeds, $250,000, now the proposed resolutions approving the determinations must be submitted to the board within 60 days. on page 14 of our report, we note that the electronic and security systems in jails, 1 and 2, failed on august, 11, 2014, and the emergencies were declared on the 21st, and as was stated here this morning, the legislation, is not submitted for the board for over, 9 months. this is, we note that this is the third emergency resolution, in the past year, that was delayed, due to the misunderstandings on the part of other city department and agencies regarding who has jurisdiction for declaring the
1:27 pm
emergency and for procuring the emergency, necessary contracts and so we made a recommendation on the bottom of page 14, where we recommend that you amend, the proposed resolution to urge the department of public works to work with the city attorney's office to immediately issue a memo to all of the city departments under the jurisdiction, regarding the specific procedures to follow, and if an emergency arrives in the future and we recommend that you approve the resolution as amended. >> thank you very much. >> and any further questions? >> okay, we will move on to public comment, on item 5, anybody wish to comment? >> seeing none, public comment is closed. >> chair, all right, so i think that chair farrell made his points clear as well as the budget analyst. and so i would like to accept that recommendation, that the city attorney office issues the memo, so that all city departments are clear on the procedures. for the future. and then adopt the amended resolution, to with the
1:28 pm
positive recommendation to the full board. >> okay. >> thank you, we have a motion by supervisor tang and we can take that without objection. >> okay. >> sorry, the budget analyst, the deputy, and the budget analyst recommendation is that the dpw work with the office to craft a memo that will go out from dpw to the all of the departments about the process. and so, just wanted to make sure that that is your intent. >> yes tha, is. thank you. >> thank you for the clarification. >> all right. >> it will be providing the revised legislation to me? >> the public works. >> i will need that by 9:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. >> understood. >> thank you. >> mr. clerk, could you call item 6? >> item 6, ordinance aappropriate ating $5 million from the waste water, enterprise, designated for the general reserves in the public utilities commission waste water enterprise to pay the claims and settlements and legal expenses and related costs due to the extraordinary expenses occurred as the result
