farther ahead i'm disappointed and sad to say i'm not advocating to go to the public schools this is a huge hole we are in a beautiful city with educated people and wealthy and this broadband can't find one person to connect those o to those children's education i'm trying to explain to my son education is the most important asset at unified school district has failed again not with only consistent person to encourage those kids to pursue their education or so things through anyone that will take the time to know them and support them and hold them to a higher standard i'm just sad huff wouldn't are

process i know that the moment fair is october 29th that's a plug but a lot of people start this process earlier and in fact, people look at high schools since august and findings out wlat from the process that something was changed in what they thought was the truth how to get admit the into high school we confirmed it with pc and asked folks for comments if anyone is interested it is on this open for a couple of days and 50 comments people feel it is unfair to have a private test for public and private students many people are fine with that that's similar with the e f t but don't like the retroactively communication they felt that was sort of doesn't - have been lied to it
is a pilot or has said you don't need to worried about and now feeling that is high stakes so that's really the money concern just feels like the communication was late to the ask we're hearing if folks number one to be honest and talk with people in advance of making changes and number 2 self people want students to have at the option of using either test since they were not given advance notice thank you. >> thank you. >> okay special order of business i'll call the public hearings an city college of san francisco and san francisco unified school district dual enforcement partnership agreement superintendant lee. >> yes. i looking for doctor stevens dr. stevens is he here okay?

page 87 i gave you the wrong page there is a request for a waiver and not mention who the person for the waiver being requested two other waivers in the agenda means we've never had a request to waive a policy without knowing for whom we're waving it so i would think that should be corrected and further i have to just also say we recently had a controversial issue about waving a board policy district policy that appeared to be a little bit overarching not specific so i want to raise a small red flag we need vigilance on the issue of granting waivers we shouldn't do that i think for a specific purpose only i'm prepared to
vote but like the name of person to be provided to the board and somebody to pay attention in the future. >> ms. mendoza-mcdonnell. >> can i have - i have a question originally you said page 88 which is k thirty you actually meant k-29; is that correct. >> i voted i did not vote on k thirty a retroactive resolution i thought that was what you pulled so can you make a connection for i k thirty on that thank you. >> all right. a vote on that item >> k thirty. >> we're voting on k-29; correct? >> ms. sing ms. fewer

i'm definitely in full support of and glad to see this is coming up for a vote so - and commissioner norton. >> i'm interested in a hearing more about - we have a partnership in place students are taking dual enrollment courses i don't know how many students contagious of take advantage of that and wonder when it comes back to the board on the 25th if we can get a roster of wasn't that looks like if we're expanding it i'll be interested in the data and what city hall's is students are participating from but so if i may our curriculum committee had a little bit of an update on that but also at the last community college meeting with yeah, we also had a brief update on that there is data that staff
has available and maybe they can just send it to you electronically and didn't have to be a presentation but will have to see data. >> great. all right i will adjourn this public hearing item s members report can i have a report from the standing committee let's started with the report from the existing curriculum committee. >> thank you mr. haney so we had four informational items school quality irritation and summer school so i think - how they are supporting our teachers that is quite a monumental feat
and as we have more new teachers than ever so the induction program is going to have a remainder of teachers and your students will benefit after coaching and support from the school sites and with the state of california following our lead is going to be requiring ever high school to offer ethic studies and our curriculum to monitor it every high school as as you recall that we allocated a .2 but schools themselves are allocating out of their own budget another in some cases 4 classes of ethic studies and every ninth graders is tmc ethic studies so doubling the amount
of students in the ethic studies and have data on the raced of those students that have taken the ethic studies by commissioners, if you want to add anything mr. walton and mr. haney we're all pleasantly surprised about the state adopting or using our curriculum as a framework and summer this is where commissioner norton's we served many students in the program we hope to actually serve more i think i believe that that is present or sent electronically if in the mailbox in not we'll request to be sent to every commissioner thank you very much. >> ms. fewer and commissioner vice president walton. >> so much thank you as usual an existing personal and labor
relations committee meeting last week or a couple of weeks ago but we talked about staffing and we know there are still a few vacancies at the time i think 28 not just educator but personnel we've been working hard the district working hard to fill those spaces one of the things i'd like to tell the families that came in and spoke earlier we are working hard think a plan and strategy to address all the concerns that we've heard the past few weeks and sometimes things we can't discuss as we move forward and in terms of doing the work but we've pushing hard to make sure we rectify that scenario and other gaps in terms of staffing we also had a report on the teacher recruitment and retention for the r89z school year we're focusing on and working hard to make sure there is a strategy in
place that everyone in the district unforming knows and understand our strategies and how wool be working with the plan to provide the correct information as well as everyone working with their best foot forward to address future gaps an update on the classifications as we push towards making the team permanent and we also discussed the superintendent search twermentd in the process of receiving proposals from r f q as you may know we had a discussion for the two selections to move forward and now we are moving forward with our chosen firm for the selection of superintendant more information in terms of dates and how we'll work on the
