3:45 am
and if could see the effects an everybody you'll be happy we were stressed out about a lot of homework and not the juniors but we are stressed out about you know family, friends and a lot of things happening in our lives but the vicinity study forces us to go out and spend the mind we could be hanging out with friends and serving the community and trying to take that time i think that time is due outside of school with pe could really be done inside of school where we could integrate tv into the rotc courts course
3:46 am
course thank you for your time. >> i'm gordon i'm a high school eerie might be tell you with no hair all i want to say what is my experience with j rotc eight grade went to willie l. brown middle school and lowell is a big change it is like lowell is, you know, one of the most expensive schools in the mission and having j o rtc the first time walking in as a 1941 hundred and 50 pounds student but walk into j rotc looked like
3:47 am
military like the train everyday and like walking in was a different experience walking in there was different like you could feel like the sorry feel that there was a bond this family that there was a support system and everyone was not there to challenge you to multiple 11 times 32 the faster but a support system and i joined the riders challenge team a special unit which pushed you to our potential helping you not to settle but push for the extra push-up and before i hit eight grade i couldn't do push-ups now i can do about 50.
3:48 am
>> (clapping.) >> thank you. >> we're not going to make a demonstrate we can have a competition well, thank you everyone for your patience i want to excuse the student delegates if you want to leave are say something first before you leave but if you need to leave student delegates. >> we would like to pass the resolution first, i highly support the j rotc especially from mire school they're looking at it and personally i had a friend or shows still my friend laura i have a friend who enters y o rtc she was intimidate byfield at the j o rtc stretched out had
3:49 am
your arms to her and she was intimateed through her warm experience helped me to hear that she is striving through high school i highly support this resolution. >> sociolemon open to commissioners for questions or comments pr i know their a this year maybe amendments but have folks to speak before the amendments happen first. >> commissioner wynns i want the classifying about the fiscal year analysis. >> so ask the deputy superintendent the main thing is
3:50 am
the phone page 2 of the physical analysis section 4 independent sued so at the budget committee i found if confusing i think i clarified most of the things if confused me if you can possibly talk about that i'll let you say what you want to and maybe ask another question. >> thank you, commissioner i'd also like to thank two deputy superintendent for presenting the memo and doing one way or another a lot work to analyze always scomploern described the physical impact as commissioner wynns mentioned at the budget committee last wednesday there was a discussion about the summaries that are described in the section 4 of the memo and in particular this has to do
3:51 am
with with whether or not some of the instructors the j o rtc don't have the credentials that will permit the students taking the j o rtc sections to be award to the accessible credit with a few other conditions 4 conditions described in the board policy one that talks about an appropriate credential and two instructors that have crewmen and the impact memo talked about the other 5 sites in the instructors didn't acquire the credentials than the assumptions the credentials will be through the vicinity study
3:52 am
option the committee discussed whether it should be assumed those credentials had been acquired by the 5 instructors or some portion therefore or not i believe that commissioner wynns was stating correct me if i am wrong commissioner that the authors thought that was appropriated to assume that the credentials would be acquired and if that were to happen then the 100 percent and $89,000 of the section of memo was mute no need for other teachers to supervisor the awarding the instructors them would possess the credentials for the pe credit to be awarded that's a
3:53 am
hypothetical by commissioner wynns talked about her prospective that it had been assumed overseeing cost will not be necessary so in this case, the total fiscal year impact that is summarized on the last pam the memo will be reduced by up to $189,000 almost $189,000 brings it down $187,000. >> does that make the summaries that people don't retire or live forever. >> vice president walton i'm sorry necessity to the. >> so the teachers need credentials and once they received the credentials no important cost to provide the
3:54 am
credentials for any other teachers or individuals because the teachers will not retire or live forever. >> because the policy if we pass it requires that the peace day in the district we'll have to have the new defined j ot c that's the teacher credentials. >> commissioner wynns for classification you know the j over and over rtc will not be able to teach unless they have the credential. >> yes. >> immediately. >> and the decision was of the commission on teacher credentialing in order to teach pe or a subject class that fulfills the pe requirements the currency j o rtc i understand
3:55 am
been to ballot and the instructors are in the process of taking the subject matter and then the commission has to issue the credentials but, yes they'll have to have that credential. >> so that mean that only two instructors have it. >> no currently the two instructors are the ones that have full pe credentials. >> you're saying then they must have it or they can't team a domino effect. >> they can't have it until it is available. >> it eliminates 7 teachers i mean that can eliminates 7 j o rtc teachers that are with us. >> so allow me to manage this
3:56 am
a little bit if you want to generally council. >> i wanted to clarify i think as and read the resolution to receive pe credits a student will have to be taken if an instructor that has a new credential which is like a ct e pe clash credential or taking the j o rtc in are credentialed teacher oar there will be the option of an independent study an elective through the extinct study 3 possible ways to receive the credit from the j o rtc. >> it's not quite if you'll have to have the credential or else not teach in the district; is that correct or not correct.
3:57 am
>> i think and i you could not teach the j o rtc unless the board eliminates it as a an elective. >> so i think commissioner wynns then what you told me is actually not correct what is correct that they can teach j o rtc but not give credits not the credential you can't teach thank you. >> commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell. >> so further classifying so the new credential has been issued but not been provided yet i'm sorry approved but not issued yet; is that correct that's my understanding. >> in order for a teacher to receive or the j o rtc to get the credential we have to wait until it is issued we don't know
3:58 am
what this is yet but in our resolution your excusing to allow them to provide pe with the new credentials in the in the meantime will they'll be doing independent study i guess my question why are reapproving something we don't know what the what's going to be allocated what's the credential going to be i think one of the questions many of us have whether or not? able to satisfy the pe credit or the pe requirement through done this way. >> just to clarify two issues the p t c as approved. >> new credential similar to the credential for technical education for pe rotc we know that is come and teachers need to do to satisfactory that and
3:59 am
your instructors will be doing that in order to receive the pe considerate the additional component that the course substance needs to meet the pe requirements for as well as the substantive requirements under the education code that's the second issue. >> which we don't know yet. >> respect that's part after the staffs responsibly to make sure we before we issue the pe credits but - >> so in the meantime the current instructors will not be able to provide did pe credits and students came back can't take that. >> not until their properly credentialed in the department. >> one other clarify we've heard a lot of the students
4:00 am
asking to participate this is not eliminating j o rtc it is classifying whether or not our instructors what teach as a pe course and keep it through independent studies we're talking about how we can allocate it and whether or not you can take the pe course or not and not eliminated. >> vice president walton. >> oh, other clarifying questions or - >> okay vice president walton. >> thank you, commissioner president haney so just there's a few things that i wanted to discuss in regards to this resolution the first one thank you to anyone in the audience that served in the i's military we definitely appreciate our service and applaud you so thank you for
4:01 am
that >> (clapping.) >> i'm a little bit confused by this meeting in terms of of the what resolution is presented i swear this resolution is a physical education but all the testimony was about j o rtc i'll confused with the resolution we have a lot of people that came and testified about j o rtc a program i support i've spent a lot of time giving drill and talking with the students and been to the classmates and visit the j o rtc program i support that but an issue hero one j o rtc in the destruct district is not under attack but pitting this against pe to try to export
4:02 am
the district saying we'll not fit the guidelines unless we lift the prohibition of funds for the j o rtc is selfish what is taking place with j o rtc an attempt to hijack this provide large false information about the j o rtc it is working in the dissented eir district we haveer heard the students talk about 93. 4 gpa this is not suffering but i'll tell you who is suffering in the district our black and latino and asian pacific islander and pardon or bhrn or which shall with special needs if you want to take the resources away from those i say shame on anyone in that proposal we have children now graed reading and homeless children
4:03 am
and children living in sros and disfranchised place any funding gaps that exist it is due to the federal government and their lack of funding and support for t the department of the defense what they've budgeted with $3.3 trillion so we don't take the money out of the mouths of the children and lift the prohibitions create the vision and stirs up the extensions the decot of those versus with means shame on that i don't know who is spreading the rumor of j o rtc but who of needs to look at the families and the sulfurs in the face and lemon them you know
4:04 am
you've created a false base your 40s the people to highlight false issues i can't accept this resolution one i have an issue why we're trying to dummy down and two they could get the had minutes of and not the expertise or the capability with two credentialed teachers j o rtc is a federal program we're not responsible we've paid for half of the salary for the instructors we just heard our teachers make a plea for more resources for hire wages we're talking about the possibility of using go discretionary resources to address our gaps to provide funds opportunity o the website
4:05 am
says the union street department of defense we have students are test below average for the state and district our money needs to go towards supporting the students not supporting programs we carry all the benefits and half the salary. >> our students are doing well, if we want to commend improve the outcomes by the chauvinism gap we can't support policies that adversely effect our utilizing and african-american and obesity and others diseases are in our children we have the outcomes for the black children worse disguised and set up for more support of this program that again shame on us i want more teachers in every classrooms and
4:06 am
list state penitentiaries in the market and science and pay higher salary so settles will be conceive in the program it is shameful to pit this against the reform in the form of j o rtc support that already exists with the hundreds of thousands of dollars in the district thank you. >> commissioner murase and i see commissioner fewer and . >> the resolution was to bring rational outlet to our schools their unclear what is 23450e7b9 meet the requirements and a component of the pe requirements is the program so i do feel that
4:07 am
it fits under the umbrella we want to commend reminded any colleagues this is a program that serves the black and latino and african-american 8 percent african-american and 2 percent asian pacific islander i wish my colleagues could have seen the dedicated students on saturday we are heard system how the program does contribute to a successful mainstreams. >> commissioner fewer and commissioner bobbie wilson. >> so i'd like to also i'm looking at the two teachers to the program i'm looking at the numbers i'm looking galileo high school as 57 students and
4:08 am
abraham lincoln permanent has with an and abraham lincoln has 383 ask the students and lowell one hundred and 2 students but let's see how many instructors lowell has two instructors that is ongoing i wanted to say that the math teacher one and 50 students that are correcting homework and pga management and having 57 is students in gold in a program that would be a significant period of one hundred and 57 students 10 students per class and putting in an infrastructure instructor i would say an extra instructor in math class especially the students that mr. walton spoke
4:09 am
about it you had seen the error we got on achievement of economic achievement you would put your money there i know this issue has been coming political and but i think that has a school board we should be a firewall between the politics and programs that we have for your students we note this is not about the eliminations of j o rtc but personally that myself i think to have j o rtc walk through the political issue for a political gain is just not right but that's- i know that probable is not the same for everyone but not right that it is what you offer to politicians
4:10 am
so they'll support the program it is wrong i mean, i know i'll different than politicians i have to i want to put that out there i have been hearing from folks that is happening and credit just don't think that is right the j o rtc program p will stand on its own merits obviously many, many students who benefit from this i also want to say that if we're allocate funds the schools and those are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 schools we're allocating fund for a program to serve in schools we should allocate to every school in san francisco they can create programs of their choice and that means last
4:11 am
week john o'connor, walberg i think we should be looking at then if we are talking about eligibility that is what equities equity when we said ethnic studies we give them want 2 to teach we said all of them this is really what equity is so we heard some great testimony and appreciate the students coming out but want to say that when i'm looking at those numbers of actual enforcement to ask for oath teacher for two teachers with 47 students gold we've heard from teachers at the podium tells you how over worked and reiterate a math teaches one hundred and 50 students and day and held to a poor curriculum
4:12 am
that is an course that is needed for congratulation that will be effective for college when we look at the math scores that's part of the reason we changed on that speaker point a lower percentage of students are actually at advanced algebra not passing or able to you know assess the complete curriculum and so i just think it is gotten political if it were my wish i would firewall but physical education the other half the resolution and a lot of things unanswered about this part of education and have a sense that mr. walton when we mentioned will particularly drilling down on the education this board amazing passed a with a positive
4:13 am
recommendation policy are nutrition people were great opponents and no more sodas and no more cookie bake sales i've read about that we will have no vending machines okay. not sell bag he lives who does that effect the most and the study shows it adversely effects blacks and latino and asian pacific islanders students and into their adulthood a long lasting effect students don't have areas to exercise or gyms and not taking swimming loneliness they're not on sports teams there's a gpa requirement
4:14 am
for sports teams so i will ask everyone to think about that i'm looking at the second the first part of resolution which is about pe exemptions and again, if we're talking about entity we have to look at the overall health our black and latinos and asian pacific islanders to be healthy too do i want them to have strokes and type 2 diabetes but pe is physical instruction that tells us how to experience and exercise is important for your body so i have questions about this actually and i don't really have much data in front of the me about the first half of the resolution only this fiscal year impact around the j o rtc i
4:15 am
really want to hear the impacts of the fell effects when we before eliminating the pe requirement or raising it for certain students and what we're proposing can have lifelong negative effects so, anyway we should have a discussion and i have no data and what to vote what is this - what are the psychos and showing if we eliminate pe for p students what happened i mean, we're asking for research from outside groups we have nothing generated from your education folks he that we need to be conscious of that we're preparing children for the 21st century that need to be
4:16 am
healthy we want everyone to live long and healthy and thriving lives in the 21st century that's part of vision 2025 thank you. >> commissioner wynns and i want to thank everyone for coming out and take a second to say that i - while we've had this debate close to years it has been an enormous privilege to listen to students that paraded in the program and meet with them and some of them with long gone now and gone into wonderful careers but i have had the his own and privilege of being able to interact with the students the thousands that have testified as those students did
4:17 am
this evening about the importance of this to their lives and their success in school so i whatever and i know we could talk about that some other time whatever our feeling about the military, about we've been through the debates we are everything was having real downtowns and questions about the united states going to war but for me this was always been so i thank you. i want to say a couple of tings about the resolution itself you know, i will say that i think that is, you know, it is sort of one of the self-evident but that issue is politicalized forever not getting political now this was
4:18 am
all about politics and not about students but i have to take worry about that program it is fine this program thrives because of the dedication of supporter of the particularly of the instructors of the performance of the students and actions of this board over the years have been designed to and ruled in making it much, much harder for them to succeed that's been the purpose if we cannot kill the program have our own political futures not me but other people we'll try to identify said it seems like torturing students make it difficult for them to screed that's one of the things we are righting the wrongs to make it logical and work as a
4:19 am
reference before we've done work for years and years and years to get to to clarify the position without credentialing that's larger why it is come up now so doing this is something that is setting right in my view the wrongs done to the students in the last few decades. >> (clapping.) >> i'm so i want to say one thing i appreciate the deputy superintendent classifying that issue that was confusing and have a part that have fiscal analysis we're approaching to change to that's a little bit unusual in the fiscal thinking i want to particularly not to the board members and the members of the public but the kind of you know we have said we have two
4:20 am
schools out of inclines because they don't center two instructors but yet other schools have used the funds to hire an instructor we have that researched the private money not as much, etc. but looking for american people equitable way to look at a way to fund what we might think about other programs to fund that is to say we'll put an amount of central funding needed but divide it so every school that has j o rtc will have to have some of the money for the second instructor and therefore has skin in the game and has to
4:21 am
make that priority if they want the point out of podium for more quickest and afford that and discussed it seems to us before the proposal was made that the if western going to be getting into compliance needed funding for certain schools like that that commissioner fewer has referred to as that wouldn't be fair to the other schools without the money i think that is a benefit we have hit upon here thank you for that to come up with a way to equitablely fund and i'll end by saying that i we have, in fact, continue to make funding the students to whom mr. walton referred our highest priority all the enthusiastically authorized the
4:22 am
spending of a significant money of central money on the african-american initiative we have had accepted multi tier support system that target more funding at the schools we think are in the most need for the formula are basically funding distribution formula works i for one will continue to support that not only generally but specific to some of the issues that were raised this evening. >> and also, we have fought and had success finally and thank you for the staff raising private dollars weep focus on the students and should continue i think that to comply that our motivation is to take something away from the highest needs students and is not true and in fact, 40 percent of the students
4:23 am
in this program are those are the students - and the last thing about the pe part this in fact, is something that i mean, i have no intentions i don't think anyone will dump down the pe curriculum and supervisor the independent studies for students in small schools have little assess to the pe gives them a focus to the instructional program not exactly the same by that challenge we also have how within limited resources especially with the small schools and students can you do all the things you feed to do that is one of the ways that in a way will meet the requirements the states and the regulations but meet our goals and candidates to make sure that all
4:24 am
students have what we can provide i urge you to vote for this we need to resolve the issues some pe policy issuance we have to fix and have to update this is overall the fact that the staff came forward and said we should integrate this sfotd general part is part of long term to integrate those and make them compliant and be more useful i hope we will pass this we can it includes the principles we want with the equitable resources and addresses the commitment through the program and it's students and very last thing i want to say none mentions this i wanted to thank and praise to the j o ot c instructors they've been
4:25 am
understaffed and work so hard to get advance the education and also get degrees and get overseeing credentials and working on the new crewmen it is in fact, in existence it takes for the process to move forward they're in the process of taking the subject matter and it takes to issue it so the process is there we should trust that will happen and fall back the independent study i'm hoping we can minimize the replying steps and vote the way we should. >> (clapping.) >> oh, you next? >> yeah. just making comments.
4:26 am
>> so i first want to thank all the students and everybody that came out and staying for so lastly late you have finals coming up we appreciate you and proud of everything you're doing i want to speak a bit to the sort of the broader questions raised by this resolution i think that is important to remember and i'm sure that for many of the folks in the audience sort of thinking why are are we talking about those things how does that have to do with j o rtc but that effects the approaching not has to do with with the j rotc how we'll approach it will building amendments that come up a number of other things we have to do that as well
4:27 am
one of the things that actually, this is an aspect of this resolution he found a bit circuitry at the same time we were saying he didn't want to rely on the extent study with the j o rtc but in the school day insuring the physical activity two greatly expanding an independent study doesn't make sense we wanted the physical education a problem of independent study or we didn't i was confused from the defining my prospective on this this i hope i take it not the only one is to be consistent around this that this district as commissioner fewer said and mr.
4:28 am
walton and others have said truly has the commitment to physical go education during the school day an integral part ever how school we need to comment and need to make every effort to make sure that is happening in our school for that reason the aspects of that that most of us toward independent study a brother do stroke without the data about the students that are impacted and who they are and not only that have we exhausted all the options we're basically saying this category of studentsfield is not a required course during the school day so what if we did that with math and science and english as a second language you do it independent study outside of
4:29 am
school none would accept i'd like to see from the district a plan for overseeing schools that we have those categories to pure mary you are that physical education is happening on an independent study a necessary we're thinking about outline our options and using how creativity as a district how we can actually looking at physical ed is happening during the school day for that reason i could not support it independent study and with that said, when it comes to j o rtc expanding the principles i agree we should explore authorization credit for j o rtc that allows us to bring this go
4:30 am
a conversation what is happening around the school day if they need 4 hundred minutes in addition to that cover 8 areas of study with the physical ed and our district will work to do that and authorize that with that confidence then i actually think that is moving us towards this philosophy you're getting an elective credit and the dependent study and having thefield outside of school for that reason for the same principle we're leon not to support the report i'll support the pieces of this resolution that authors us to explore whether or not j r the program
4:31 am
can - and, of course, with that credential that associated with it i think is an update the piece that j o rtc parts i don't support and not moving in the right direction i think that commissioner wynns pointed out that is schools are skin in the game she used is that a different context but i think that we have a model right now where schools are stepped up and sailing we want that has part of our core curriculum we'll commit our funds nobody is trying to take away their ability and that in some ways it funding versus the school funding is acting like the school board is not funds but lawful of the funds they have the large majority of sfundz we allocate so not we're not allocating funding, in fact,
4:32 am
upwards of $800,000 benefits we are providing essential some funding here's some of the reasons i'm concerned about upsetting this balance we have now, one i hear the point about this program constantly being called and brought in as a political football. >> tossed and stds students have to feel they're under attack i don't time that to happen at the end of the year if you bring this to smoking your relying on central funding we'll center this conversation an, an annual basis and not helpful to anybody it really will not the reason it won't be helpful nothing that says the funds come from the sites sunshine has to
4:33 am
be consistent you can the get the money go fight them and get funding if elsewhere that leads to a lot more political fight over this program and lastly the fang that is a federal program as mr. walton said this leverage to go to the federal government and say this is a program that is working this is the program you have regulations around a number of teachers help us fund it and help us get the additional fund and maintaining negotiation involved and parrot that had been loud loud /* allowed i think through is an- i'm happy not 2, 3, 4 a position to be eliminated and i think
4:34 am
that is potential of offering a pe credit is the right thing to do and my e-mails and people that come up everyone that spoken from the students prospective that is what will make our lives easier and impact our lives that's why the thing it jumped out to me this central things from my prospective not only will it not for all the reasons you've heard up here not forward to the district but help you and not help the program that's my honest prospective i'll support something that took away the pe to move forward on some of the pe credits i'm not prepared to support this. >> can i respond
4:35 am
actually there isn't i am not remember the funding part only says list the band not authorize the funding it will center to go through the budgeting process it wouldn't be up to me but the proposals to do that match does would require the schools to keep that up or not get the funding and have to write it in that way but the proposal will have to be split so - >> i think this is a proposal to allocate fund for the programs essential it should be done at the same time and clear about the purchase if because people are talking about certain programs all the analyze you might find good this is part of lack of clarity and what that means it is unclear and no
