4:08 pm
phone number and that sort of thing. really encourage them to go to all the meetings. what we find at a regular meetings for example, are healthier and october many of the members who attend do not have computers or e-mails. they come to our meetings so that our newsletter is really critical. that is how they're getting it's good at about 140 that i personally mailed the newsletter to because they don't have electronic service. so, we are aware of that and working with you 8c with all service, with everyone to make sure that everybody gets as much of the correct information as possible. so i want to thank everybody on all sides for the assistance and also to understand the whatever else we can do to help with this information and will retirees feel comfortable about the information and their options we are here and ready to assist you to, thank you

4:10 pm
comment >> i'm sorry for that one could get there are some blue shield people were being referred to specialists that we been told are not accepting not medicare that has some exceptions to that. so i think it's more than just of four people within the city planted think we have to aware of who else might be in blue shield might have special considerations to be addressed and also our big message to all the kaiser people is that nothing changes for them and that kaiser is an option. >> if you have any specifics would you please refer those folks into the staff or follow-up. any other public comment on this item? hearing none, and seeing none, we will move to the next item >> item 14, discussion item report on it work in health plan issues. if any >> commissioner breslin >> i the question for many represented from united healthcare. i talked to jane
4:11 pm
perrone the other day about the medicare new plan for pain doctors call the macro and she said she don't say she was going on vacation but i was curiosity is how this going to affect members? was a lot of concern may be a lot of doctors would not take medicare people anymore with this new medicare reimbursement plan. it's complicated. there's a lot of questions and answers. i got 3-4 inquiries >> dr. dodd, can you shed any light on this? >> the macro regulations have not been finalized. i reviewed the comments pacific business group forwarded regarding the regulations. macro is designed to reimburse for quality so that there is a mip fund which
4:12 pm
is an incentive fund that if you meet certain quality standard the physicians actually get more money. there have been-i did a literature search after i saw you are e-mail, commissioner breslin, and there've been no articles that have projected that physicians will leave medicare because of macro but it is a new way of financing care that incentivizes quality, not quantity. it probably will likely not be implemented until the middle of next year at the earliest possible and given there were changing presidents, it may not get implemented at all depending on the outcome of the election. this is an initiative that cms has put forward because cms really drives health policy and again,
4:13 pm
it's about quality. but there's no projections about members of physicians who are going to drop out of manager. >> this came from an advisory board >> right. i read the article >> but you are saying- >> its complexes doesn't say who is currently >> regulations have not been finalized on this topic. is that what i'm hearing you same? >> there not been finalized >> any other comments on this item? >> but can i just ask >> please >> i'm willing to suggest if the board wants an update on macro although with the november form it will be a topic and i'll actually talk to him about it but doing an update on what it means >> okay that thank you that would be useful. anything else on discussion item 14? item 15
4:14 pm
>> yes, public comment >> i'm heard it wondered. i hold shares in united health. it had a good performance is weight of their in the fortune 500. i don't see them going bankrupt in any time. so, my concern is because i am in the ppo in united health and presently satisfied with it, other rates going up? other premiums going up? of hope is going up in the future? i think it's very important to monitor their performance. they are not a poor corporation at all. i don't think we should be paying for their high revenues were anything. i would like you to have the levels of copayments
4:15 pm
and premiums remain at the present standards and i would like to see this board do everything possible to do this. thank you. >> thank you for your comment. any other public comment? seeing none, we will go to the next item >> item 15 discussion item opportunity to place items on future agendas. >> i would just note as i did at a prior meeting, in june, we are planning to have an educational forum in november. the november board meeting. our there's a few items that have come forward but if there's other items that are particularly of interest would ask the commissioners, please forward those to dr. dodd. so that we can in preparation if we will get to get outside resources or what have you to present the items fully. anything else on this item? if not, next item >> item 16 discussion item opportunity for the public to comment on any matters within

4:36 pm
not only serves as both an intervention for students that need the intervention the most, but also as a professional developer and opportunity for our teachers as well. in addition, community-based organizations funded and supported by her excel program in the office of student of family and community support division, provided summer opportunities for over 6600 students in a mix of academic recreational physical and enrichment components open to all students at school sites for low or no cost. the program ran for at least six hours a day for six weeks during the summer so we really strove to interrupt that certain something summer learning loss but also our early education department served almost 2400 students in preschool programs. this exemplifies the astounding partnership and coordination with various offices within not only the district but such as our lead department our innovation in such an social justice department special education department, multilingual pathway department,
4:37 pm
access equity student family commitment support division and xl. it also required us to work in very close relationship with our external partners including but not limited to the mayor's office, our department of children youth and family, young community developers, ccsf beacon ymca and a host of areas businesses and community-based partners. this is truly an example of how a community comes together to serve all of the children in san francisco. i am also proud to announce programming was offered over 25 campuses throughout san francisco unified school district over all school levels this summer. as you can tell, there was a lot of learning happening this summer and her students were well served. this would truly a collaborative effort in order to serve over 13,000 of our students in summer engagement and interrupting the summer learning loss. i would also like to announce that the first administration of the math delegation exam was given 291 rising ninth grade students on july 28 2016. this is important for parents to note of rising
4:38 pm
ninth graders second administration of the exam on august 20, 2016. in keeping with the math placement policy adopted by this board of education on june 14 all students who take this exam will have already completed a course that covers the content in the san francisco unified school district, and core algebra one course. i want to remind the public algebra one no longer exist. we have moved to a much more rigorous course called, and core algebra one. the exam is comprised of seven math tasks that assessed students conceptual knowledge procedural skills and the ability to apply the mathematics. these items were chosen by a phd mathematician and a recognized expert in mathematics pedagogy for their alignment to the common core state standards from grade 8 math and out of the one. each
4:39 pm
item was scored twice. if there was a discrepancy between the scores was settled by a third scorer. additionally, 5% of the exams were randomly sampled and scored by experts from the silicon valley math initiative and the lawrence hall of science. on the july 28 exam there were total 56 points possible. 30 points were necessary to pass the exam and i constituted what is known as a cut score. the families of all students who took the exam been notified of their students score whether the we enrolled in algebra one word geometry in the fall. august 20 administration of this exam will be available to anyone who qualifies to take the exam including those who took the exam in july in which to retake the user. that's just need to log onto the website www.sf ust.edu regarding at august 20 examination. as i'm sure you all recall, last spring i personally set three bold goals for common core math implementation. just abiding
4:40 pm
way of remembering, the first goal was by june of 2018 we will have reduced the number of students needing to retake algebra one geometry or algebra 2 x 50% from the numbers recorded in june of 2013. this goal will be true for the entire student population of the san francisco unified school district as well as each subgroup of students. i also made the commitment that by june of 2018 we will increase the number of students who take and pass fourth year of math courses post algebra two with a c or better by 10% and thirdly by june of 2010 we increase the number of latino and african-american students take and pass advanced placement math courses by 20%. though it is still early in our implementation of the mike and report progress made on goal one. as you may recall, in the
4:41 pm
past years approximately 50% of our students will be glad to retake algebra one. i want you to think about that for just a moment. 50% of students taken algebra one were required to retake out of the one because they're not mastered the content. yet, the 2015-16 the first ninth-grade class in which essentially every student went through our common core state standards grade eight math and then the eligible one course sequence, 77% of all night grade students received a c or better in the common core state standards algebra one course. and will be moving on to the ccsf geometry in their sophomore year. hence, we have already on goal one reduce the number of repeaters about javaone by over 50%. we are well ahead of the gold of the headset. in addition, there's positive indicators further upstream. such as eighth-grade math the number of their d and f this past rain fell from 80% which result in 2015, 212.6% in
4:42 pm
2016. what this means for us it will much work to do but there can be no doubt were on the right track. more students are learning much more rigorous mathematics content earlier on without having to repeat. this is very good news for our community and i will also add, san francisco unified continues to lead the state of california and the number of students not only proficient but advanced and mathematics in this past administration. so it's good news something to celebrate how about a round of applause for our students? >>[applause] i would also finally like to say that as we start the 2016-2017 school year we meet this choice towns with enthusiasm and total dedication to her students our teachers and our communities. it's a new beginning and a time of great expectations for all of us. this year however, we are faced with new and very serious challenges in particular challenge that is been talked about a great deal in recent years and now is here.
4:43 pm
an unprecedented teacher shortage across the nation and in particular california has been hit hard by this stark reality is we been preparing for even though we didn't are preparing for for over two years. we work tirelessly to fill our classroom teaching vacancies and this year lease periods 615 classroom vacancies and i filled 567 vacancies so far. close to 800 if we count all vacancies in the teacher ranks including non-classroom positions as well. the majority of the hiring season we been filling vacancies as a much higher rate than last year until 53 classroom positions just in the last week and a half alone. i want to give a special thank you to our human capital team our human resources department for their incredible work. if you come on

>> vice president walton >> thank you president haney. i do disagree with commissioner wynns. there are times when we do waived our current rules to vote on something and move something forward. first reading without going to certain committees i think this is one of those cases where we should do that carried >> commissioner fewer >> not on this one i've another one i am polling. thank you. >> do we vote on that or >> [inaudible] >> i will second it. i want to understand the impact of delaying this and moving it to committee, but given that it is a long-standing policy of the district, i'm not necessarily i don't even think i oppose the proposal necessarily but i think you might want further discussion. i would like to
4:54 pm
understand the impact of delaying and moving it to a committee. >> this is your item. how would you like to handle this? >> i think this can be the pleasure of the board. staff is ready to discuss in more detail the impact and the limited nature of this exception. so it's really the pleasure of the board. >> president, may i make a suggestion that we pull this item for discussion and we have a discussion for staff and then we bring the boat back if board numbers via linkage go to so that we've had enough time to deliberate and then bring back this boat that we have a discussion. of course, just so commissioner wynns without the okay with you? >> well, it's not okay with me but if that is what the board once, the procedural way to proceed would be that we would,
4:55 pm
as i understand it, more discussion would be in order on whether or not we should send it to the committee. then, we could take if a member of the board apparently has objects to it being removed from the agenda made into a first reading, eventually we have a vote whether not to do that here this evening. i would like to avoid that. plus i can make a big difference proposal that we -i don't know how to do this parliamentary actually but that will separate have a
4:56 pm
discussion when we discuss items centered on whether or not why i think it should go to committee and white some of what the issues are with the staff. at that time, we could make a decision based on taking an action, motions that come before us, about whether or not to send it to committee >> commissioner wynns exactly what i said. if you're in agreement i feel like we could do that. president haney- >> we will discuss this as a time when we discuss items seven and we consider at the time motions to either pass it now or send it to committee. make sense to everyone? vice president walton >> just one pointed this a motion and second she did not move to separate it. i'll be going to? >> what is the appropriate to the rules actually is to just make a request to make it at first reading it that's all we've always operated. commissioner norton acted like or presumed that was a motion to remove and make a first reading. it could be i think we can just proceed as though there's a motion on the floor >> to tidy things up i can withdraw my second of the motion. >> right >> clean it up over there. come on. i think everybody is
4:57 pm
clear on what is going to happen. so what we are going to discuss this as an item severed. any items-well, yes. >> thank you president tenants. as an item about ratification of personnel and i think it was going to be for c that counsel i think at summer house in the agenda. i'm sorry. >> i do i have a similar request that it be put to the personnel committee unwilling to pull this but this ratification been on the board eight years this the first time we've ever done it. i like more extensive sort of the session around because i don't even know what it is. i'm happy to hear it as a pulled item. i
4:58 pm
also think, that i was going to request we here in personnel because it is a personnel matter and so but i am happy to hear it did the same way that commissioner wynns and then sharing about the warrior thing. you know, then if we need to have more discussion to take it to committee and have it further understanding about it >> i want to support that and i want to to do the same thing. or sever it but because i think this is really the whole point of speaking at this time. it's not the content it's the process we never that needs to be discussed i think. >> if it pleases the vote to have a board out i'm open to having a vote on this right now.
4:59 pm
>> we don't need a vote. we would just i can just refer it. >> okay if were in agreement >> unless there's a staff objection >> otherwise i'm happy to bring it to eight vote >> just note at this point your personal committee needs to be a jedi's. the closed session item which recently can do. >> okay, so commissioner >> is this time sensitive whether not taking action tonight i want to be clear? >> my understanding it is not time sensitive to the board has already approved contracts for all of these individuals. we could actually very quickly describe why it's necessary is procedural and state law. but it's not time sensitive of people not being employed. >> i'm going to grant that
5:00 pm
request and have a go to a personnel committee. we won't need to discuss this further this evening. will call vote will take under section letter o. i don't think there were any other items board members want to sever or the superintendent? that's enough, okay. item h, superintendent's proposal. this was moved and seconded by june 28, 2016. if there is no objection will be dealing with the moment by substitute motion which the board has received copies are available for the public on the table at the entrance of this room. report from the ad hoc student assignment committee. we received and that's the as the chair of the committee, we received two proposals related to one related to assignments
5:01 pm
for willie brown middle school and one related to language pathways. there was a discussion among the committee and a consensus among that we want to alter take an alternative approach substitute motion you have in front of you taken a different approach with willie brown and wayne which pathway assignment. that's why you have amended by substitute and i think we will probably be discussing in further detail now. mr. superintendent >> thank you very much. i would like to ask for the quick report. i'd like to ask our executive director mr. keefe to come forward if she is here. if not, we can have darlene executive director of atc get darlene then to come forward.
5:02 pm
>> good evening commission should this item was reviewed at committee and the concerns raised by members in the committee and based on that discussion there is a substitute motion presented here that would be replacing the original policy proposal. this recommendation would be the original proposal will be replacing and the recommendations that we suspend the provision in the policy that requires that any changes must be approved three months before launching the new enrollment cycle. any changes tonight will not make the three-month deadline. also, we want to continue with the middle school feeder choice process as has been for the
5:03 pm
past five years and remove any line which about automatic assignments into the middle school feeder schools. the process will remain the same as we have been practicing for the last five years. and, we will also continue to allow the students at clever, but part of malcolm x and dr. charles drew to middle school feeders as has been the practice for the past year. the original school as stated in the policy along with a preference to willie brown middle school. the nine 4102 preference will also stay in place. so, based on the recommendations in legal the policy will only address the current practice and will not include any further future action or timeline for change. any plans to change the policy and future commitments will be captured in a separate resolution. so, further changes to the board policy will require us to amend the policy again. >> would you like me to read
5:04 pm
the requested action? >> please >> so the requested reaction that the board of education of the san francisco unified school district adopt the revisions outlined in the attached student assignment policy board policy p5101 as amended here in. that the board suspends its student assignment board policy provision requiring revisions to be made three months before sf ust begins accepting applications so that the proposed revisions to the pop-up 5101 may be effective immediately. >> thank you. i have no public speakers signed up for this item. ic commissioner murase >> president haney, just a
5:05 pm
quick question and i apologize but this is for my information what was the intent for moving the moving willie brown from the automatic feeder pattern after one year? >> doll policy states that we would have automatic assignments into all middle school feeders at this-in the 17-18 school year. the policy states that the policy also states that we will have identified willie brown- elementary to middle school feeders for willie brown. so the original proposal did state that those schools would feed into willie brown did it also allows the opportunity through the choice process to have a preference into their original middle school feeder that was identified originally in the policy. so the intent was to
5:06 pm
actually have the students have the same opportunity as all other students would into an automatic assignment and be promoted into a middle school. >> commissioner murase >> thank you very much and thanks to staff for working on this very complex issue. my understanding of the proposal tonight is it is the utilization of a plan set out two years ago in terms of the middle school feeder pattern to pilot the feeders in the first couple of years and now to actually make it official policy. i want to say this is
5:07 pm
an important step in terms of predictability which is something families have been asking for that they not have to participate in a lottery going into middle school and that there are strong arguments for continuing for example language pathways from the elementary to the middle school. so, i will be supporting this action tonight. i just want to make one clarification the japanese language program pathway i'm most familiar with. there had been instances where people, students, went from the japanese language pathway elementary school to the middle school which is now the designated middle school for japanese but for one reason or another, the student, to continue. there wasn't a good fit in middle school. so, as they [inaudible] that student can automatically transfer to ge at the presidio because they were admitted under the program pathway. they would have to be applied in the transfer process. i just want make sure that families understand that they are applying to a particular program pathway at a school. they have an option to apply to the general education
5:08 pm
pathway but i just want to bring that to light because there were a number of instances of people think and an automatic transfer from a language program to general education and that is not the case. thank you. >> commissioner norton. >> so, i was president in the student assignment committee last week when we talked about this. i support the substitute motion. it was after a long discussion where we all expressed grave concerns about the status original proposal and i want to just be sure that-i mean, i support the substitute motion because it basically does not take anything away from anybody. it kicks the can down the road for a year at least, but nobody loses something that they have right now good families still have the preference to their feeder middle school. the
5:09 pm
willie bound family still has a choice of the dual feeders that are currently in place. it basically keeps status quo for what people have right now and i think we actually have been pleasantly surprised at how the middle school feeders have gone over and all people are using them and seem to have accepted them after some initial pushback did so, for all those reasons i think is the right thing to do but i also am-we will have to contend with this larger question of are we going to go to automatic assignments and if we do, there is a real equity question to make sure that everybody has the same ability to actually access and automatic assignment and there's just some real issues with the language pathways and then also families willie brown clearly articulated to us they felt like they would be losing something if we took away their second feeder. that they needed more choices for various reasons. so, i don't-it's not
5:10 pm
the topic for tonight but i urge the committee and i want to say again, we just need to engage with this issue early not have it come up again in the summer like g, we have to look at this now again. let's actually take that this on in student assignment and think about is the automatic assignment the right policy? we thought was the right policy for years ago when we past however many years ago it was in 2010 but maybe it's not the right policy anymore and we should grapple with that. >> commissioner fewer >> yet. i want to apologize. i was unable to attend the student is on an ad hoc committee meeting. i requested a meeting to have a discussion and i heard the revisions were coming. i just want to say that although what i'm hearing is that we had not discussed the preference, and that i know that last year we did it last year commissioner gordon and i offered a resolution to but ultimately to school from home as a preference about the siege
5:11 pm
at and i see this policy actually doesn't address that. but i just want to note, i think that is a very important discussion to have and to bring up again. so, i respectfully request that at our next student meeting we actually take that topic up and look again at the evaluate also. what i am hearing, summarizing this, is that there are not big changes in this. it's basically maintaining sorted by status quo until the next file were taking it down to the next board and superintendent. okay. i think, though, there's some real issues with our feeder program and also even the way we assigned students in our open choice and almost full choice program. that we have
5:12 pm
student assignments and i strongly recommend this board even though i will not be on this board after january 1, i respectfully request that whoever the members are on this board that we we consider that and look at that again. thank you. >> commissioner wynns >> thank you. i want to thank the staff for bringing this forward in this way. it does, after the committee meeting it does do was a lot of feedback. i know. a lot of concern. i did- there are a couple things i kind of i guess want to report a little bit in more detail from the meeting. not all of it , but things that i think should be heard by the public actually a little bit. that is that because what i think there were some concerns about whether
5:13 pm
walking in place the feeder programs for all the bayview schools into willie brown was what we should do and it brought up the issue about the impact which for my mind, is certainly one of the main reasons i end up supporting the feeder pattern did in fact that was one of the few tools we had to address segregation issues in the school district and even at the time, we believed we were being the modest in our willingness to sort of feed schools into someplace not its close proximity in order to try to a positive impact on desegregation. so, i just really want to-without going into the details of what people thought what the proposals were there which are available of course, just to say that for the public and for the board, i think that that's what were going to want to do this coming year is to be more-is to think more boldly about whether what we would be willing to do some more transportation or really look at assigning, as the
5:14 pm
automatic feeder elementary schools to sub middle schools the will not be in close proximity. and that it could mean we need to consider changing some of the features that exist now because we've always known that was going to be our challenge around willie brown. was, inserting another middle school into a feeder pattern. we're every elementary school already has a feeder school in the middle schools are basically filled with those that feed from existing elementary schools. so, we have to be willing to talk about that, i think, in this coming year and prepare ourselves and to prepare the public for those kinds of discussions. last, i want to say i was interested what commissioner murase said
5:15 pm
because that actually was something we did not bring up at the meeting but was is really perfect example of one of the overarching concerns we had, which was, with the recommendations about the language pathways what is the fundamental difference of access and therefore equity, for those language pathways did not in language pathways and this is kind of sub-subject about which we did not discuss which in a way, even though we don't want people to-we don't want to fail to explain something that causes people to think they have access to something that they don't. that's really terrible, but also their resumption that they have access to that is actually presuming for themselves even more access because there are feeder is into the language pathways and if they didn't have regarded that as being an automatic feeder into the general education in that same school that's the kind of thing we have to clarify particularly as we develop new
5:16 pm
recommendations about the language pack ways. so, again i want to thank the staff for the work that was done on the recommendations and particularly for the work that was done between last week and this week on the substitute motion. i will definitely be supporting its. i will say i forgot one other thing i want to say, to support what commissioner norton said i think all of a sudden please with how successful two now the feeder pattern process has been and how many people are actually going to their feeder schools even though they have to make a request now. doesn't happen automatically. so, that was our discussion that we did not think asking for the way he would really significantly change qualitatively the process for anybody. people are used to get it working well. they are almost all going to their feeder schools anyway. but we do not think this would be a big again, substantive change for people using the
5:17 pm
system rather that it would be a better process for getting to the next step if we do not try to muck around and make a lot of amendments to the recommendations but rather propose that we look more deeply at this next year. thank you. >> commissioner fewer >> thank you i just want to say the last thing that i think what i've said consistently throughout the years on my term on the board of education which we started with student assignment actually the first big topic is i would like the board to keep in mind that choice by its nature is [inaudible] if you need afterschool care or before school care where you have resources to get your children
5:18 pm
school across town then you have choice. if you're able to go visit schools during the opening moments of time and i talk to people that visited 20 schools. if you're not able to do that, because you're working a job and you lose money every time you're not at work in every tort is it [inaudible] mentors are only in english and a lot of them don't allow you to bring younger children with good choice by its very nature is an inequitable. i just want the board to remember that. though we've had a choice system, i think what we have seen is that people self segregates. i would like to keep that in mind when you are reevaluating our student assignment system. that choice, by its very nature and very design, is inequitable. i could show you examples of that if anyone wants to push back but it is. so i would like i did then around the world language staff, i would say that i would encourage the board, as i think that most of you know, i have been pushing several language accessible to all elementary schools. maybe not in immersion but that's another subject
5:19 pm
matter and i think we should look at that having two children, one who's fluent in mandarin another child was wonderfully in spanish and i think it is only appropriate for the 20% rate in this world that so shrinking that everyone according to vision 2025 must be a global citizen and being able to express yourself in another language and communicate in another language is imperative to been successful in the 21st century for our children. so regardless whether in an immersion program the world language should be accessible to every elementary school child and so actually are able to feed in to a larger program in middle school and reach a high level of proficiency in another language by the time they graduate from our schools. thank you. >> thank you for those comments. and for all the comments from the board. i was a part of this conversation on this on the proposal and the
5:20 pm
substitute motion, and i think that what we've seen with our middle school feeders really demonstrates that were moving in the right direction and that her families are responding to the middle school feeders as a model can but it's important we get this right. i think were doing the right thing by moving in a little bit slower of a timeline to the automatic assignment. i think we are going to get there. partly for the reason that we are hearing that this is the direction that families want to go in was enough by the choices they are making. so i think we are going to get to an automatic assignment good it's going to happen soon. but i think this one year of sorting this out, planning this right, particularly around the language pathway, is going to get it to a better place in a lot less heartache when it does happen. the one thing i do want to say, though, two things, on willie brown we have more
5:21 pm
training and more conversation that needs to take place as a board around this. i think we were surprised by the proposal that came to us around willie brown if we didn't believe that it reflected the board's goals around diversity and equity in the fall success of that school and so i want to also as commissioner fewer said relief flag that the board needs to have further really challenging conversations about that. and how we think about the feeder schools for willie brown, the automatic assignment for willie brown, to ensure the success that middle school. which i know this board and district is committed to. so i think does something that came out of the long conversation that we had the student assignment meeting. as well as commissioner fewer said the need to have more regular conversations about student assignment and the many issues we have to figure out what i would commit a not going to be the chairman willing for but i'm sure commissioner
5:22 pm
murase the incoming chairwoman sure we discuss it and as well as the many other issues brought up in the comments this evening. with that, if there are no other further comments were questions, we can take a roll call vote on the substitute motion >> thanks. fewer aye, mendoza-mcdonnell aye murase aye norton aye walton aye wynns aye mcelhaney haney aye six aye >> item i board members proposal. there are 1900 item j public comment on general matters. i have a number of the good cards here. i'm going to call up speakers and live 2 min. each. >>[calling public comment cards]'s
5:23 pm
>>i must've been on vacation. anyway, good evening commissioners present united education san francisco. first of all i want to say to superintendent carranza. i know i will see you but i have not
5:24 pm
seen you since we got the news. it's been productive sometimes challenging and learning experience for working with you my first year as president as usf get back to school is a special time. students eagerly wait find out who their teachers will be good parents started on making sure children have what they need for the first day of school. educators lovingly and carefully prepare their classrooms to be the welcoming learning environment for their students. so, you as board members i hope you, too, have spent the same amount of time as educators and parents think about what we you be doing this year to ensure that our schools are the welcoming learning environment for students and our educators feel supported in all that they do on the first day of the school year to the last. it's an opportunity. every school year is an opportunity to do things better. we have a big challenge ahead of us. the themes you are going to your other themes are
5:25 pm
not new things but we want to continue to make safe and supportive schools and actual-we want to get the resources to our school so that our schools are safe and supportive for our children. and we want to make sure there supports for our children and special ed classes and children in regular classes let iep's their teachers and paraprofessionals of adequate training and as you all know, the big-it's on elephant in the room because were talking about is the affordability crisis. this is the year where the pedal it's the middle. we can't be in the same place next year we are we are now were the opportunities is lost to send out a different message to the educators that are here in that they respected and supportive and we pay them what they are worth. thank you very much. >> good evening commission.
5:26 pm
superintendent carranza. happy new you. welcome to the new student commissioners. good to see you. so, i want to give a little background. last semester teachers were asked to sign a letter of intent as to whether they were going to return that you turn that in by june 30. this is a provision in the education code. they were warned that if they didn't-if they sign the letter they were going to return and then they did not they would be reported to the commission on teacher credentialing. this is something new the district had never done before. we in felt it was in enterprise decision considering there's a teacher george foley also recognizes something that district is allowed to do. so, the one recommendation we did make was to be sure to start the letter with thinking teachers for their services. as the opening paragraph and not the final paragraph. so that was implemented. so, why am i
5:27 pm
bringing this up now? it is because we have now heard from about 15 teachers who been told that in fact they will be reported to the commission on teacher credentialing because they have accepted jobs elsewhere or their chosen to move elsewhere. from the teachers we have spoken with many of them have been affected by the affordability crisis and they can stay. one of them was evicted from her home and she proved outside of the circuit she's going to be reported to the commission on teacher credentialing. now, again that's not against the law. however, we know that a least a couple of administrators would envy leaving the district as well get we didn't know before june 30. as far as i know they're breaking the contracts. i am not advocating that we report them to the commission
5:28 pm
on teacher credentialing and i don't think that's a good idea. i am asking for some mercy for our teachers who been forced to leave and i want this book to show some consistency in to avoid being considered hypocritical. why can administrators leave without report happening and teachers cannot? please consider not only the shortage of teachers here in san francisco but throughout california and please reconsider these reports to the commission on teacher credentialing. teachers can end up losing their credentials for up to a year. that is a harsh penalty because they can afford to live here. thank you. >> good evening everybody. my name is jean robertson. i am the president of united administrators of san francisco. i'm thrilled to be here tonight. i want to address our board of education members who are running for reelection. our union is having a little party meeting general membership meeting, we are inviting you to attend with us on tuesday september 24-7 pm.
5:29 pm
we know it's a board meeting night so we will put you on. if you want to come and mingle with us. have a few moments to share a little bit of your platform of the we don't have a political action committee, we do have street credit in the field. people do ask us how it's going and how we are feeling about our candidates so we be happy to hear from you and share in a knot in an official capacity did so put that on your calendars. e-mail will be going out in the next day or two. i also want to acknowledge the principles and follow superintendent folkman thank you, richard, again for bringing that altogether to our administration is that he was advised that it was very meaningful and the feedback from the principles and the administrators in our district have been overwhelmingly positive this year. even with
5:30 pm
the transition that's taking place among us right now we feel good and we are ready to go which brings me to wearing my principal had today was the day we kicked off. so, i had 50 of my staff for all the days that an afterschool staff coming together today and we moved mountains. we have some very meaningful work that took place. one of the biggest pieces i just have to share, given susan's comments, we share what was in our hearts and with our teachers shared that her landlord reduced her rent $300 this year. believe me when i tell you that was the highlight of our day. last, i want to give a warm and heartfelt thank you to richard for your work with all of us throughout the years you been here. we are good. i think we are fine. we are looking for to work with you in the interim. so, thank you and definitely

5:42 pm
really appreciate help maybe an official position from the board to help prevent any more dispensaries going in closer to schools that are currently allowed. anyone that knows jim muro elementary these kids have got enough challenges as it is. i have a business around the corner. i would do anything for any of the students in this is the least i can do. were hoping we can work with you to help close this loophole and prevent anything more from happening to those kids. thank you. >> thank you. that's the end of general public comment. item k special order visited is not tonight. item l discussion of other educational issue. none tonight. item m consent calendar. none tonight. item n, vote on consent calendar. moved and seconded under item g. >> fewer aye mendoza-mcdonnell
5:43 pm
murase aye norton aye walton aye wynns aye haney aye 60 i >> item o vote on consent calendar resolution seven for separatist iteration under item g. i believe we have one. that was severed by commissioner wynns. >> okay so this item is on page 106. it's item related to authorization of the logo of the golden state warriors to be used on the exterior basco court backwards. centocor paving and adjacent retaining wall by waiving the requirements the board of
5:44 pm
education resolution number 95 25 six commercial free school acted in the case of willie brown junior middle school. so, here are my concerns about this. we have in place for first of all, there's also a question here about paving of the courts. in fact, in some cases it's referred to as we paving. this a brand-new school why are we repeating? i mean this a substantive content question about this much is the policy issue. >> good evening commissioners. hughes made on david golden tee facility officer. sounding somewhat froglike tonight. just off an airplane from the east coast. for those of you who obviously know, we've constructed a brand-new $56 million middle school during the course of doing that work we worked very very hard to develop some partnerships with
5:45 pm
different groups who have offered to do things and form alliances with our teachers, staff, students. and the golden state warriors happens to be one of them. this is the beginning of a relationship that started about two years ago. the scope of the project was for us to finish our normal exterior basketball courts and when it was an appropriate time the golden state warriors were going to come in and resurface the court, put the fancier colored coating probably the best example is valley middle school where you'll see a similar court, put in newark fancier groups and that's and
5:46 pm
paint the logo about the golden state warriors and the willie brown junior middle school on various parts of the courts were the backboards were in adjacent wall. what needs to happen in order to be able to do that is commissioner wynns pointed out, in 1999 there was a resolution passed by the board of education about commercial free situations in the district that had a lot to do with commercial products. it had a lot to do with the sewing of cigarettes. it had some brief conversations with commissioner wynns why obviously co-authored the resolution. in it was a pretty broad and encompassing in scope and it's been in place since 1999. edgerton high school,
5:47 pm
when nike wanted to put their swoosh at the 50 yard line when they did the field the board said, no. i think it is staff's humble opinion there is a difference between a billion-dollar corporation that sells tennis shoes and a major sports enterprise which is part of the community but that's an interpretation that i think board of education needs to make. so, we respectfully put forth this resolution and we would look for you i think the golden state warriors are compared to move forward with the court renovation. irrespective of the decision of the board for the logo or not. >> to clarify the answer to the question, i appreciate all that background. in our $50 million we could not afford to put the fancier nicer surface on the basco court without
5:48 pm
private donor? >> we could have done it but that's not-it's not typically what we do on schools throughout the district >> but we didn't hear? because we did-valley. another donor, i forget who came forward and did that >> okay. so i appreciate that. that answers that question, but now let me say something about the policy. it is true this policy has been in place a long time. i think many people in our community are justifiably proud of it. this was by the way for informational purposes, one of the policies that were advocated for by advocates for children and youth. that's being part of the package of progressive policies at the time including the beginning work on the proposal to create
5:49 pm
a parents advisory council a number of other things in that list of policies that felt were needed after kind of change in administration in a more community-based approach to governance. there were a lot of people at that time-i'll try to make this short. try give a tiny bit of backbone. at the time was a rising tide of privatization and commercialization of public school. it was the time of the-this was actually in response to proposal in our school district to have were then known as exclusive pouring conjugate our district would get a little money in either become a pepsi or coca-cola school district none of the products of the other major soft drink companies would be allowed to be sold. these were sweeping the country. in addition, it was a time when the product placement in curriculum materials strategy started to emerge where instead of saying johnny needs wants to
5:50 pm
buy a new bicycle tire and how long will it take to earn the money to do that, there were proposals and there were in fact textbooks with inside would be a giant two page color photo of a pair of extremely expensive athletic shoes with all the logos and the names, brand names, and that would be the math problem. how long would taken to earn enough money to buy a $250 pair of athletic shoes. things like that. there were a lot of, there were a lot of moves towards advertising in public schools. this was at the time a group called the center for public free for commercial free public education in oakland a national organization, so a lot of these-and this policy was the nations most sweeping anti-commercialization policy
5:51 pm
and was-i don't know still is-many years most requested policy of the school district by others around the country. so, the center actually went out of business because these kinds of efforts kind of stopped that weave of privatization and commercialization and advertising product advertising in schools. recently, at sba, i saw there is a new group called the center for commercial free childhood which has emerged and they knew about our policy. i told him where i was from director commercial free-so, this was important work and by the way, it has remained in place all of this time really has kind of changed the culture of our school district. mr. golden's example of the pertinent field i think is a good one because were in that
5:52 pm
case donors wanted to do, and they donated the surface for the track at burton and it was made out of product that's made out of recycled athletic shoes. we felt like was part of our sustainability program. it was part of our educational program. all of the money for that field was privately donated including a major gift from rosenberg and gifts from the national football league and others. their request, nike, was to put a big logo their swoosh in the middle of the football field to which we said, no. we said but instead we negotiated and this is the point which i think we should discuss at the rules committee that we came up with put a board in the athletic in the field at the side of the field that recognized all the
5:53 pm
donations, all the private donations. including recognizing that this was part of our education for sustainability that we appreciated this and negotiated the placement of a small logo from nike company there. so we sort of modified and waived in that case this policy in a modest way to recognize the contribution of a commercial company for educational and useful to our students purposes. i think that we had other examples we've had major donations and requests for the placement of commercial logos and we've said, no, to them. so this is what i think. i totally love and appreciate the fact that the warriors made this commitment to the school. i think it's a really great partnership for them given the proximity of the school to that neighborhood to what is hoped to be the new warriors arena. and their commitment to the community is something we should all applaud and want to work for. further, i think there is a fundamental
5:54 pm
difference here which i think we should talk about. that is, they are not just proposing to make a financial donation to were to pay for something. they are proposing though it's not yet finalized, ongoing partnership and programming in that school. which i think makes a fundamental difference. but i think we need in a much recognize to our staff here, and to the whole public, remember, it was the board and i was very vocal and still am, who insisted it was time for us to really build our capacity to raise philanthropic and private dollars. that while we work as hard as we can for public money, we need private support to fund our schools. we can talk about whether we think it should be that way or not but it is. the work that we have done the board the staff in particular, the superintendent this administration the staff we have hired to develop the capacity to do this kind of development work is
5:55 pm
fundamentally important. my position is that we [inaudible] we have not talked about what kind of guidelines we need for today for things exactly like this. we have not talked about what would be our criteria for recognition of donations were ongoing partner programming from private donors even corporate donors and what would be appropriate and not too much of an imposition on the educational programs. so that's what i think we should do. that's where i think we should send to the rules committee. i think in this case be interested in because were not going to wait until we should do that or not want to wait until that's fully resolved to make this deal. i understand that and i don't want to do that but what's described to me in here is kind of over-the-top. saying we are going to have-and i appreciate and want to thank the staff are sending us the kind of mockup
5:56 pm
of the court with a warriors logo on the floor and i actually think i'm willing to be convinced that's kind of okay. that's a really good kind of recognition, but i do have a problem with backboards because that has been one of the main targets of advertising for commercial companies in schools. backboards. and scoreboards. i have a problem with-i would like to see what they plan to put on the wall because of that and put on the wall of the schools logo, good. if they are going to put sort of turn it into a mini warriors arena, i have problem with that. i think and i also have to say that i do not expect that the staff would have resulted this because we have
5:57 pm
no policy and guidelines specifically for this. that is my issue with this and why i don't think we should just move it forward. the last thing i'll say is that. the other thing that disturbs me is this policy as i read it, this resolution as i read it reads this policy for willie brown middle school. not just for this purpose. but it would put you would say you know what, we think part of our responsibility is to protect from aggressive commercial advertising. all the schools in san francisco except for willie brown. except for the one which is in the bayview. i think that is unacceptable to me. it needs to be-we need the policy guidelines. we need the discussion and we need to be-to find a way to come up with which i would hope would be helpful to the staff, to be honest, what are appropriate and relatively modest as we have in the past recognition of commercial donors and i'll just
5:58 pm
say that i know nike makes more money than the worst that they make plenty of money. it's-that is a really organization which is both clearly community partner and also a major financial corporation is just exactly why this is something i think should be discussed. if the board's pleasure is that we go ahead with this just like this, my choice would be that we send this to committee and we particularly try to put that out and try to work out some language that says if we agree which i think we would, go ahead with some negotiation and run it past the board so it would be within the guidelines area of something which does not have too much of a commercial imposition on the school in the spirit of our interest in insight commercialization cause. i think they'll be the way to go. that's my whole rap. sorry took so long. >> superintendent.
5:59 pm
>> thank you president haney good couple of brief responses to the questions put forth by commissioner wynns. we staff nis superintendent are fully supportive of the policy insight commercialization cause. i remember it as a teacher in the late 80s early 90s where we had news programs that were being shown in classrooms just chock-full of advertisement >> long past against in california >> right. i remember this is problematic. i'm very appreciative of this pulse. however, in this particular case, the reason that staff is so adamant and so supportive of this policy is that before we broke ground and willie brown middle school the warriors were at the table in a very very conscious way working with us not on a logo good they were
6:00 pm
working with us on how are we going to empower students the community and staff in the bayview in particular and willie brown middle school around connection to being in school, being proud of your school being proud of your community and being part of a stem account for one of the things i think a simple powerful today see the paulo powerful role models in our community i can literally not the one month without seeing a player from the warriors were a member of the warriors organization that is not visiting the school is not helping with the professional development activity, is not stepping up and getting of the organization to the community. i think in this particular case, it's not so much a branding issue because i'd be
6:01 pm
very very personally opposed to that. this is much more opportunity to give students a daily reminder that there is, there are heroes in their lives who actually care who they are. they care so much that they want to have them remember the warriors have your back. and by the way when he said the warriors logo you can see the willie brown logo right with it. i think that's the message we are trying to convey. so, i would ask us to think about it in those terms of understanding there's concern about opening the door. when it comes to in terms of opening the door, i think the way you read this the background and the requested action were requesting the exemption for this one particular logo. i will go on record as a superintendent and i'll ask deputy superintendent lee if he wishes as interim superintendent, that this will not be an ad hominem completely open waiver for willie brown
6:02 pm
for infinity. this is very specific request for a very very committed partner to the community of willie brown middle school in the community in the bayview and quite frankly in san francisco. it's a very specific request and we are happy to make that very public that this is just run the specific request. >> commissioner norton >> thank you. couple things. i actually really support the suggestion that we start working on the donor recognition false. we should have that. i think that would resolve a lot of the issues that are coming up. we're actually is commissioner wynns said would be much more successful at attracting philanthropic dollar could it smart for us to have a donor recognition policy. i don't know if i can ask the
6:03 pm
superintendent to have or the legal counsel to start working on such a policy to bring to us and have us look at as a board. because i think that is the right thing to. i am actually, find with this particular postal. i think i appreciate what you said superintendent about the meaning of the local to the students and i think right now at least the warriors are heroes in our community and i think that is a very positive reminder to students about what is possible. so, it has a very positive association right now. i worry a little bit about the slippery slope. what if there's a time where the warriors logo for whatever reason doesn't have such a positive association and we can't look into the future and think about when that would happen but that does worry me. i wonder if there is a like some kind of amendment or small modification to the requested action to make very very clear the commitment
6:04 pm
you articulated, which is this is just what the basketball court and it just about this proposal but were not proposing any kind of a blanket exemption for willie brown because i think while unwilling to accept this, i would like to talk what the backboard. i think that the retaining wall and the court logo i've no problem with. i'm a little concerned about the backboard just based on what you said. it's a place where advertising is generally sought after. again, not huge concerns with this particular request it truly more about the slippery slope and better recognition policy and if we can really clarify very, in writing, this just about this request for willie brown and not a blanket exemption for willie brown told feel comfortable. >> thank you commissioner norton. just a few things. one, this is a basketball court but were talking about in the warriors do basketball. we are
6:05 pm
not talking about renaming the school. when i talk about plastering the warriors logo all over the school. we are talking about the warriors being able to have a small piece of what they represent at a school that is excited about having this actually happen. two things i want to know. one, we are definitely not trying to commercialize schools. i'm 100% against that. in fact just to give a couple of examples so we are clear on where i stand on commercialization of schools and public ties to schools one my fraternity brothers and i about a year ago we help paint part of the playground at, north slope. the week prior to us going and volunteering and painting part of the playground pg&e had been out there. somebody from pg&e got the right bright idea to put their big pg&e logo in the foursquare
6:06 pm
on the bottom half of the commodore slope elementary school playground. i personally i think you can go talk to mr. greg johns i painted over the logo i personally did that. in terms of commercialization of schools and being in favor of that corporate ties in schools [inaudible] another example, comcast. their internet essentials program, they want to participate and make sure they could be part of putting their marketing materials in a regular school menus and i told him, point blank, i would never support anything like that. because, to me, you will be predatory lending practice and i don't care what they try to promise at some point they would try and upsell the community at some point someday someway. it's the nature of business. this is not about jeopardizing were commercializing. good examples
6:07 pm
of what nike wanted to do. nike may have wanted to do certain things but nike is not in our city right now. supposing to provide hundreds of jobs. nike is not in our city right now making sure that when the developing arena. 50% local higher commitment without being mandated to do so but prior coming to our city and nike definitely is not providing dozens of jobs right now to people in our community which i note the golden state warriors are doing personal get to my point, we have an organization that wants to support our school part of the sports program part of the sports teams. we are people excited about the sports team and sports in san francisco and particularly indiscriminate. there's nothing wrong with a small token of what they're going to be doing. they're going to repave the outdoor courts and i am not sure in a totally most people focused on providing advertisements on the score
6:08 pm
board. not the backboard. but i could be wrong on that. anecdotally, probably being bigger sports fan than some, appear on the dais, i think probably just a little bit more accurate in terms of where things get advertise. with that said, if there is a time period work commitments are broken in the warriors don't do it but they're supposed to we can paint over the logo. i'll be the first one there leading that charge if they don't do what they're supposed to do but in this case it something i support and we should support it. thank you. >> i do not know you had those picking skills. commissioner fewer >> thank you president haney. i think commissioner wynns is like. it's time that we revisited our 1999 policy and i think we heard from the board
6:09 pm
that we stand committed against anti-commercialism in our school and i think it's time actually because we should do this before we open up our new arts center because of her discussions about some of the private donations from our arts center and that is a very hefty actually amount of money were going to have to raise and whether not we are willing to use any privatization of-take money from people and have certain things named after them. so, if that is the intent of the art center then, yes, i agree it is-we should be having this error rules committee and having a good discussion setting parameters for this. i do another when we brought the warriors to the table double in the first conversation was not about possible courts but about the education at willie brown middle school. and how can the warriors be of help to help transform that educational experience for those students the bayview. so, personally, i
6:10 pm
feel like an exemption for this. i agree that probably commissioner wynns, we should say something about the wording of it but this is a one-time exemption for this school and district under these guidelines. i would like to come to consensus with you and with the entire board around what might be a sensible two okay tonight. so, i hear from you that you might be okay with the logos on the ground. i guess that is called the basketball court right? >>[laughing] yes, i know that was good. i actually had to ask the superintendent what is the backboard? i just not know
6:11 pm
the name of it. i understand you have a problem often with the-what i'm hearing from you and when i'm hearing from the majority of this board, i think, the logo on the ground is fine. i think what i've heard from two commissioners now is that may be a little hesitancy about the backboard. and i'm also hearing about this concrete wall that you might be having an issue that is that correct commissioner wynns? yes. what i'm wondering tonight so we can come to consensus on this and tell our generous donors the warriors about what we can do, i am wondering if we would be amenable to having the ground, the courts, with the logos. we hold our rules meeting and then would we be able then to paint the wall, do the law, and also the backboard after we have this discussion. because i do think that the points have been brought up here this evening were very important around with the warrior meetings but the warrior team actually means to
6:12 pm
their youth in the bayview. i personally happen to schools where warrior players have come out and the students are so engaged. i am astounded how they know all the statistics every player, they know what happened at the last game. they know everything did i think that actually having a warriors insignia on the on our school is not a form of commercialization unless they were saying, we want all your uniforms to have the warriors insignia and i told different things. so, because i think it is also a subject of san francisco pride. and what the warriors have meant to san francisco and what a shock in the arm it has been that we have these players that also donate their time but also money to our community. so, i personally i'm fine with all of
6:13 pm
its. but i understand commissioner wynns concerns. so, i just want to put that out to the board if people were open to that to my that we go with the logo on the ground and we have discussion and then i think we can come to some assurance, perhaps, this commercialization, which we are somewhat questioning commercialization, is agreeable to have on our wall and also on the backboard. >> commissioner murase >> thank you very much. i share commissioner wynns consumptive i don't want to give carte blanche for anything to happen at willie brown school. to the language i would propose to make sure this is one-time limited waiver, that
6:14 pm
the waiver is limited to this proposal only for this project only, so that it is very clear that what the waiver is for. though we are not granting carte blanche on the waiver. i support commissioner fewer's proposal-i don't have a problem with the basketball court having the logo. i do think we should have a discussion about the rendition of the what's being proposed for the wall. it's pretty significant and i think we be to have a policy about that before we go down this track and i would also propose that the rules committee look at not only the commercial free schools policy as well as the donor recognition policy, but also our naming policy generally. on buildings and auditoriums and rooms because as we move forward with greater and greater private support that's going to be increasingly an important issue. thank you. >> i'm going to go to our
6:15 pm
student advocate who i think i missed one to make a comment. student delegate >> yes, i would like to know find out more how this goes with the committee but i like to point out where students in the bayview seven knows that being evicted adversely that about that live in the bayview in that area. a lot of them still commute and still regardless of where they live because they really just go to richmond to sleep and that. they do come here in the weekends and i having friends that play sports, they rarely come in on weekends, and practice to the suit. i feel like all of the students mostly in the bayview be targeted by addiction is a way of telling them even though they're addicted there still wanted and i know that of course education is first and we have this as most of you know, you
6:16 pm
must have good grades to play sports and i feel this way for students to have higher achievement on education and looking forward to going to school. people are caring about me so i also see the concerns about it and the advertisement. that's what i have to say for now. >> thank you. i want to ask a question and the go to commissioner wynns. there has been some proposals around doing part of it and then having them come back and do another part of it. i wonder if you could speak to why there's the time urgency around it and
6:17 pm
whether there is any potential to do that? i know there was some question around this needs to get done before school starts the level of disruption. could you also speak item that there's any renditions got on what's going to be on the wall, but i'm not sure what the backboard looks like because it sounds like there's a possibility that some folks want to do for that as well? >> yes. so, the answer to that question is clearly we were looking to do to partner with the warriors to do this work before school started. if some other work that had to happen at the school during summer. we sort of targeted the last couple of weeks before school started to do this work. so there's some incentive to come in and we finished the court, put the logo on the center court . do the wall. same painter, same graphic, same sensible artist. pencil artist. whether or not it happens on the backwards, i don't think this project is and dies over the
6:18 pm
backboard. but in general the goal be to come in once and do the job. suck on a project you'd like to stagger over time. so, my hope tonight is if there's a specific compromise of where the logo goes or we are it doesn't go, i would like to if possible, to come to resolution and have a happy crew out there and go for opening day of school. >> you have a question? commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell >> question about what he said because i want to ask you about the painting the use of the guys would come out and paint this and you kind of want to get all done at one time. is this if we did not do it now would this be a huge disruption for the school? >> we would have to come back
6:19 pm
and repaint >> semi-distractions also have relevant, relative in time. when school is in session and once kids are there, if we have to close down basketball courts and block things off, obviously students can't use the stuff. so, from our point of view, having this be done now and be new and fresh for the start of school is a good thing. i think there is the potential of some togetherness between the warriors and the school in the opening weeks that we like to have happen. all of that sort of would be nice if the work was done. >> we do not hear is the principle in favor of this? >> i believe, so. >> commissioner mar >> i want to say couple of things. i think one of the kinds of issues we need to discuss when we have developed
6:20 pm
owner policy and integrate that into our insight commercialization policies about sort of a about marketing techniques. one of the key marketing techniques is put on there a bunch of times. have it everywhere. right. that is the kind of thing i think we would want to negotiate is how much. do we want to break this and whatever it is, no matter how much we love the warriors which we do. i want to so appreciate what commissioner walton said. it is really true with the warriors mean to the city of san francisco, to students in particularly the students and kids people live in this neighborhood is really important. in fact to be truthful that's what makes me want to do it. i want to say, this is an appropriate place to
6:21 pm
make an exception. but i also think that we need that expertise in that discussion about what we mean by that. what is appropriate donor recognition, even for an extraordinary donor whose meaningfulness to the community is something we absolutely want to recognize. so, that's why it's kind of tough to say. i like the idea of saying but just authorize doing this court and then the others i also appreciate what mr. golden said about how that might be difficult. i guess, i would although i personally would say this is big. this makes here's all the other donor. this makes the warriors this is the basketball court. remember that. different a fundamentally 20 times more important than all the other donors here because the proposal is that that is the donor wall which is a small place with the names of other donors are there. and the warriors foundation. so that's
6:22 pm
the kind of stuff i think we have to talk about. i did have a question. where is this courts on the school? because i was sort of thinking it's not really separated. it's kind of like that. kids can walk through it every day. is that correct or am i wrong? >> two things. my colleague has pointed out to me that the backwards are actually decals. so those can be put on anytime we choose to put on the decals. i suspect if there will be down kids play basketball by commissioner walton plays basketball putting them on several times. because they're going to wear off. so that issue is less critical i think on the backwards. the basketball courts are in the bureau of the school. on the upper level as though wearing
6:23 pm
road drives around adjacent to the gymnasium. >> thank you that is important. so, even though i actually think this wall is a little over-the-top, because but only to compromise the idea that the-in a basketball court it's okay to single out that donor compared to everybody else although if i was the rest of them am i not think i was okay but probably i would because they are the warriors. so, i'd be willing to do that. i am interested in some kind of language such as was suggested by commissioner murase. i suggest we amend this to say in the case of the single action and willie brown junior middle school. so, that we are clear that this is-not appreciate. that was the question i asked in appreciate that this is not meant [inaudible] the thing on
6:24 pm
the floor of the court and also on the wall if we want to go with that as long as we are not going to authorize. that would mean since this is the requested action, we would it would mean crossing out the exterior basketball court backboard words in this resolution. i would offer that as a membership that does not mean we can to a letter just means one of the authors eight tonight if that's acceptable to my colleagues. that would be acceptable to me. >> vp walton >> i definitely appreciate the conversation particularly about coming up with a protocol and process for how we address donors at moving forward. i
6:25 pm
think one of the things that we also need to understand is the work that the warriors attended you on the courts det in terms of the repaving, is something that may wear down over time. putting the logos on the board on the wall same thing. they wear down over time. i guess my point is that this is not permanent. if there's ever a concern if there's ever a change or switch that needs to be taken care of and something we can deal with. we can reverse whatever happens here with the decision we made tonight. it's important to note the logo on the backboard is going to be less than a foot. would talk about 3 feet on the wall. so were not talking about extremely huge logo as well. i
6:26 pm
think that we need to understand that these are things that can be temporary if we feel to make changes in the future. so, moving forward, with this tonight does that mean we cannot fix or make alterations if we need to at a time in the future. >> is that a question? was that a question or did you want clarification on that point? >> would you like me to put that in the form as a motion >> yes >> i move we amend this resolution to do two things. to end the subject and the requested action, strike the words, the exterior possible court backboard, or maybe we should just put-just cross out
6:27 pm
backwards world court backwards because then it would say to be used on the exterior basketball court center corp. eating and adjacent retaining wall. those same, just striking court backwards in the requested action, and then we add on the last line of the subject, the last line would read, quote, commercial freeze act in the case of the single action at willie l brown junior middle school. that's a motion that would require a second >> i second. >> discussion on the motion? >> commissioner fewer >> so started for clarification, what we're saying is that it is just for
6:28 pm
the center court paving? >> and the wall. for now until we have a discussion at this the rules committee taking up the backboard part. >> so you're okay with a retaining wall? >> economizing on the general >> really? after all that discussions. i just want to clarify >>[cross-talking] >> i hear i'm down to the apparent interests of the majority here. >> okay. so what i'm hearing thank you commissioner hwang. for the wall things okay with that design and the court thing is okay with the same on the ground but it's the backboard that is the issue. those i think can be switched out. >> in part because of your question about the difficulty of staging it did is to golden has told us that when it be
6:29 pm
hard since they are decals. the specifics concerned about backboards or scoreboards is one of the things we should talk about with a blood donor recognition >> so thank you commissioner wynns for coming to this compromise. i think it's a good economizing i just want to say i think having the warriors logo on the ground which is now i know the paschal court is going to thrill those students playing basketball on willie brown's middle school. i even think they would jump even higher. so thank you for coming to that compromise. that compromise is in motion. it's been second by commissioner murase. thank you very much. >> okay. >>[applause]

7:20 pm
and making progress but instead we are deciding whether we'll pass a motion to oppose something again for no reason i'm really disappointed you guys are not taking more bold action happy with the granting cottage legislation so, so much more potential and hope you'll take bold action soon. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> hi, my name is sonya if the renters federation and here to talk about 4 ask you to vote against this motion yes similar point we already went through this is a waste of time and san francisco as built housing but we haven't contributed housing to the bay area and as we've sort of gone over the governors buy right
7:21 pm
bill was monthly applied in the areas that all san franciscans definitely need to build for housing on the peninsula the best way for the suburbs housing and silicon valley to pass buy right no san franciscans strongly want the peninsula to build housing san franciscans want this and, yes we vote against this motion that's correct. >> next speaker, please. >> good afternoon, supervisors tim colen, san francisco housing action coalition. and wanted to express our frustration with that motion back again because it is to us proevendz empty housing in the seasons perhaps we can finally stop producing market-rate and get our arms around this displacement it doesn't make sense but number one governor

said two things number one local jurisdictions you don't get it for two or three dedications e decades using ours authority to delay and abduct housing no where more true if housing coalition didn't exist i won't have a job local jurisdictions have to stop obstructing jobs and the second one is equally remarkable under no realistic economic scenario possible for the state of california to subsidies its way out of problem think if i remember what we said i read in the newspaper the affordable housing is delivers to the and costs two of no evidence he will change and open the floodgates to fund the production of subsidize housing we're left to our devices

7:24 pm
making sure there is no unwarranted an urban answered during the course of uncontrolled housing and the current measure that the governor is pushing didn't do missing any of those things it needs to be called into account we need to remind. >> legislators to call the governor into account and appreciate the positive stance towards little legislation i'm convinced that works with the state building trade we're asking you to oppose the legislation and fill it is amend to the point it does what the is spotted to do thank you. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> hello my name is milo with grow sf i would like you to deny this

7:34 pm
the opportunity to explain why my concern is not necessarily the substance of the motion but it is a motion there in my view no legal basis for the board of supervisors to impact a position under the section 2.1 of the charter that the board of supervisors shall act only by ordinance resolution except it may act on motion by when the board of supervisors has inclusive jurisdictions by acts of ordinances not inclusive hours positions in sacramento or over the position that we take inclusive position is the paramount will i matters w50e8 sit as a committee as a whole that's why the board narrowly
7:35 pm
defines action by the motion which i won't go over the details of that but again my concern not about the substance of the motion but as board president an objection to protect the rules under the chair functions i don't want to establish the precedent that the board can take did positions by motioned and motioned not subject to single spiritualy privilege to send an item to the committee and have motioned an important policy topics show up on the agenda and noting if a simple majority supports never subject to the public comment pedestrian and not from the executive branch we want to set the policy absent we don't want to set the populated absent the public engagement process or not
7:36 pm
notwithstanding our city charter we don't have the legal authority and not suggest we do and for that reason colleagues i'm asking for a simple amendment at the top of the motion which g will make that clear and that amendment has been passed out to some of you already it says whereas the san francisco board of supervisors can't under the city charter or the boards recusal of order establish the substantive policies by motion, however, this motion simply riltsz reiterates a motion adopted by the board in resolution one six zero 66 zero and the city attorney sports this and supervisor peskin supports this amendment with that, i'll move to approve that particular amendment into the record.
7:37 pm
>> supervisor president london breed has made a motion to amend seconded by supervisor peskin if no discussion on this amendment itself as opposed to the motion can we take with without objection without objection the amendment is adopted unanimously. >> thank you supervisor peskin. >> madam president and colleagues this item is resubmit of the extensive discusses in committee and at the full board time is of the essence as this matter is being deliberated in sacramento in the days ahead i want to acknowledge the state senator from san francisco senator mark leno for his work and delegations from across the state that will be visiting with
7:38 pm
lunch breaks in sacramento tomorrow madam clerk i'm hopeful this that motion passes today you and your hard working are get that out to the legislature as quickly as possible and then for me i want to acknowledge the obvious this passed by a majority of this body it is rare but the mayor choose to veto that resolution i think what the gentleman said is actually quite right which is to - in some form a fight over tone the mayor's may 13 substance is not that different than the substance of this resolution are of this motion previously resolution and what i think the gentleman said we should take heed of is
7:39 pm
that the supportive request of the mayors as well as mayor garcetti fell on deaf areas relative to making amendments that will alm that san francisco has been a leader in affordable housing development and would like this bill to be amended we can continue to use the tools in our tool in the toolbox we've paranoia i think that is time for this - we oppose this tailor bill by the way, those amendments now are widespread port in organizations all over the state of california and maybe some not from the sf grow or bar so be it with that, madam
7:40 pm
president i'm prepared to vote on this again. >> thank you supervisor peskin supervisor wiener. >> thank you madam president so i have to say this whole process i find to be irregular and really problematic as an initial matter i listened to supervisor president london breed's comments and frankly think i supervisor president london breed's comments were on point why we shouldn't set the precedent as we're doing with the amendment that you can introduce a resolution at the board of supervisors you can have that resolution fail whether at the board level or if it is because the mayor vetoes it but through the normal process and fail and then you can turn around and
7:41 pm
say i don't like this i'll introduce as a motion the difference the mayor can't veto a motion it is a effectively a procedural vote within the board of supervisors and the rebate we have motioned and the mayor didn't play a rule in signing or adverting the motion a motion is about those of us within the board of supervisors setting our own procedural rules and motioned can be about 19th century hearings and other procedural matters that's the purpose of motion and the reason the mayor plays 90 no rule in meddling so a motion our motion never been intended to set substantive policies for the city that's never been what they're about
7:42 pm
and but that is exactly what this motion is purporting to do it sour grapes this motion we didn't get what we tloptd the normal process because the mayor vetoed it as a result a regular motion that the mayor can't touch and appreciate supervisor peskin transparency in what we intended to do use this to falsely imply to the legislator u legislature this is somehow the position of the city of san francisco and it's not we sit down policy in terms of the lobbying the legislator by way of resolution and the mayor signs it or lets it become the official policy without signing it or if the board didn't act the mayor can lobby that creates significant confusion and if you
7:43 pm
were a member of the lunch break from some other part of state and all of a sudden someone says well the board passed this the mayor vetoed and the mayor is not allowed to veto it what is the position of the city it creates confusion that's why we have a distinction between resolutions and motioned putting that aside the board will act the way it does and we'll precede from this year i'll be voting against this not because of procedural mechanism but on the merits he's voted against supervisor peskin previous iteration this needs to be a resolution he offered an alternative resolution that basically said there are issues with what the governor is proposing around demolitions and 09 areas and we should work
7:44 pm
collaboratively with the governor to fix the buy right legislation so it works and then we should not just simply oppose and so my position continues to be the same we should be working with the governor to improve his legislation to fix the defects rather than oppose it and i also need to repeat what i said san francisco is not doing well when it comes to housing as reflective in the average rent of $3,500 a month and the displacement as reflected in the number of people living with their x they've been broken up for two years can't afford to move out we have a crisis and not pating ourselves on the back
7:45 pm
there's more work to do yes subsidized below-market-rate housing we want more below-market-rate housing but that will not solve the housing crisis we need more housing overall this is what the governors plan is designed to do not a purpose plan it needs amendments we should work with the governor collaboratively to get those amendments done this is not the right approach in my opinion so you'll be voting no. >> thank you, supervisor wiener. >> supervisor peskin. >> thank you madam president i don't want to budget committee labor this i want to as a matter of collegiality take exemption to the sour gripes graipz this is the policy god above grade of san francisco the mayor has the ability to express himself on behalf of the executive branch i - the mayor has as per
7:46 pm
recognizing recognize not used in modern times to veto a policy of the policy body the policy body any in its soul and saluted corrosion to express itself as the policy body is legal by the admit not often done but really rather remarkable the exclusive executive vetoed this this is the way to timely express the majority opinion to the stated legislature and the 0 policy we've discussed at nasal and why not call the roll. >> supervisor peskin i mean supervisor wiener. >> we're like easilyly confuseable
7:47 pm
i have madam president if i may through the city attorney if this motion passes today what will the position of city of san francisco be it the bill in sacramento. >> john gibner, deputy city attorney. as you mentioned supervisor wiener and as the president mentioned the city adapts formal positions on states legislation through resolution or through ordinance dlooul impacted by the board and signed or returned unsigned by the mayor or over ridden part of veto over ridden the board has not adopted a resolution that goes into effective on this bill the city has no formal position on this bill and the motion to not have the position on the bill the mayor under the chapter has the authority to coordinate
7:48 pm
intergovernmental fisherman's wharf the mayor can contradict the body to take the motion. >> so what would be an appropriate use of this motion if it passes again in sacramento in terms of the advocacy around this bill. >> i can't speaks to what will be appropriated the mayor can view it as he wishes in terms of lobbying on behalf of the city in his discretion. >> if it passes today, we could have the mayor lobbying in favor of the bill with amendments and could have others saying look i have a motion from the board of supervisors opposing the bill and others meaning members of the public that take this monoxide o motioned with a public document and say here's the position the majority of board of supervisors. >> or members of the board of
7:49 pm
supervisors supervisor peskin ask the the president to consider sending a letter quickly with the motion if it passes saying the board of supervisors passed this motion. >> that's what the - >> supervisor cohen's. >> that's correct that's the motion asked that the motion be transmitted to all 20 and 20 members of the legislation if we have the mayor of the san francisco lobbying on behalf of the city in favor of the bill with amendments and have the board of supervisors transmitting the motion opposing the bill to the legislators can have that complex. >> that's right beyond the clerk forwarding the motion adapt by the board individual supervisors in their capacity as the residents of the state can lobby the legislators
7:50 pm
but the board including the clerks letter can't take a position on behalf of the city and county of san francisco. >> in terms of the direction in the motion up here it says further resolved this the board of supervisors directs the clerk to transmit this to all one and 80 members when you - the motion itself says opposed and so then the clerk will be directed to transmit that to all one and 20 members on behalf of the board of supervisors not as residents of the state how does that - that seems odd given the mayor that has the charter policy to have the resolution goes into effect any of the board of supervisors saying wait we oppose this. >> yes. the mayor has the power to coordinate the
7:51 pm
intergovernmental affairs for the boards resolution taking a position on behalf of the city has directed the clerk to forward the copies of the resolutions to the legislators or to certain members of the legislators even though the mayor has the power to coordinate the intergovernmental affairs we can advise not the clerk is not prohibited from forwarding a document adapted by the board to the legislators by this is the extent of the boards direct involvement in the legislative affairs. >> to the best of your knowledge are you aware of a situation a motion with the board of directors not subject to any review by the mayor under our 0 - would that be transmitted to the state legislators that's into the challenges that 1k3450e7d
7:52 pm
identified in terms of setting a precedent short circuit the process and having the mayor sign or veto and do a motion and appearing to be taking a position even though we're not allowed to take a position. >> not that i'm aware of of that happening. >> thank you very much. >> thank you with that, madam clerk seeing no other names on the roster, on the item as amended can you please call the roll. >> supervisor peskin supervisor tang no supervisor wiener no. >> supervisor yee supervisor breed supervisor kim supervisor mar there are 5 i's and two notices with supervisor tang and supervisor wiener isn't descent the motion as amended is approved madam president.
7:53 pm
>> point of order. >> madam clerk i mean clerk. >> yes. the item at at least needs 6 votes it only received 5 votes. >> not the motion if the majority of those voting as mr. gibner give us the clarity. >> sure under the charter the board must act by majority the board rules on at that particular timey matter the board may act formulation two weeks ago the board continued on item and amendment it by fewer than 6 it is actually at the on ordinance resolution or motion and approve that requires 6 votes. >> so basically this fails if it didn't receive 6. >> correct. >> okay well unfortunately, the motion fails madam clerk can you please read
