in terms of -- i know people have been looking at this website in a lot of different ways. when we look at the current, like, most highly used pages, and if we have some sort of, like, gauge of, do we have sort of gauge of what those pages are before experiencing those pages, and they're on a trail to find something, and they stop, can you speak to that at all? >> so we do ongoing analytics through google, and also, we've had a few different type of analytics tools that give us heat maps, as well, so we can see which pages people go to, what pages they stay on the most, so we will continue to monitor that. and can he definitely provide more support and attention to the things that are more frequently looked and requested, and we're hoping if we have the new design, we'll see some positive changes in
some areas. >> president cook: so can you share some of those? >> yeah. so we know that enrolment is, not surprisingly, one of the most highly requested pages. but generally, in enrollment, the school calendar is another really popular one, so a lot of people are looking at our academic calendar. and there are others -- [inaudible] >> lunch menus, thank you, yes. we actually kind of random little piece of trivia is we get several hundred views originating from china every month, as well. >> i'll just share, too, that through that phase one, we did a lot of research and review of the analytics to help inform our design and so build that in. how do we bring the pages that we know families or community members are more often on the current site, so we focus on having clear language and
concise language. so that's where in our beta site, you'll see hopefully that will come to fruition because we use that to help guide sort of where we focus first. >> okay. and so then, you mentioned lunch, and if that's going to be something that we can do after people engage with some sort of aspect of the website, like, leave a comment or review, what was your -- honestly, i think that lunch review should be on the website. as soon as that contract comes back -- [inaudible] >> president cook: -- and i see other commissioners -- so i had commissioner lam, i know, and commissioner norton, but i'm going to come back because i'm not finished. go ahead. >> yes. thank you, president cook.
i was just wanting to follow up on that theme, the threat around the client and customer service response. and i think that's what's interesting around the potential chat feature because not only am i interested in the analytics of which pages were requested, but i think really about which ones that, again, need -- you can see my priorities around how are we responding to questions, right? so for example, if there are issues around or questions around enrollment, if there's something around something that's happening at a school site, like, we heard from in public comment tonight, that it feels really important for parents, communities, students to hear back from someone. i think that will just give us an edge to understand what are the aspects or the different supports that are being requested of staff, not only just for informational and
reference. >> president cook: commissioner norton? >> commissioner norton: just -- and i apologize if i missed this earlier. i'm curious what content system you're using and also how -- if there's going to be improved work -- there's efforts in updating and preserving the site? one thing i hear is the information is out of date. there's a lot that you do, when you search, you find really old stuff. it's sometimes five, six years old, sometimes more than that. and i know that we have had really staff limited availability to update, so i'm just wondering if we're making that easier, if we're going to give departments the opportunity to maintain their own sections. >> so departments are currently responsible for maintaining their own sections, and one of
the challenges that we faced is a lot of departments have created their own independent sites which means they tend to divest from putting up content on that sfusd.edu site. so when they go to that site, we're either sending them to another site which may or may not be accessiblet or translated. we're going to be requiring that all of the departments migrate back to the website that we're supporting. >> as a parent, i've always been looking for information, but then, i've gone to schools where students speak other languages. what's been really helpful about the website is when folks have updated things, i go on-line and get translated versions of what is a dlac, and that's something that i've been
able to share on school sites. but on pages that don't have translation, i'm just wondering what the expectation is around every page being translated by at a department level, and then, is that same information is going to be shared with schools? i know that's a burden. my daughters went to jean parker, and making sure we're adding content, there was a bag making sure that it was translated. >> so the -- the translation tool multilanguage tool is built into the c.m.s., the platform that we have here. and so by bringing in, migrating in all of those department websites, they will be translatable, so that you can get that basic -- what they're posting on-line, you can then translate into a multitude of languages. and the same would be true for the school websites, when they all come over onto that platform, as well. that enables, as we were sharing, you know, having a common platform, we're able to
provide that service once they're on our platform. so we have shared that. it will take us some time. there are a lot of sites out there, and we also want to make sure that we're targeting -- that we're sort of thinking about what phased approach is, but the expectation is we're all coming onto the same platform to make it easier for our users and to make it more intuitive and user friendly. >> just another question. i understand our district staff can access their paychecks on-line, but i'm wondering if students and staff can access their grades and assignments on-line, as well. i know we can access that through v.u.e., and what i was just looking at right now, it is showing me a graph of my attendance, which i think is really helpful, but just would that be integrated into that platform or -- >> so that will stay on the
student view on the student portal, so when you log on with your sfusd user i.d. and password, you can see the charts for it, submit your assignments. so will all stay within the student portal. >> thank you. >> but you can access that portal also through this new platform. >> president cook: my last question was just going to be about the open source approach and having a user community that was going to support the update to the websites. >> so droople is a common platform, and there's a robust number of users out there. it really opens up our opportunities to connect in
with additional developers, to connect in with training resources that we're not necessarily creating or starting from scratch on our own, so it helps expand our capacity to be able to support the site in the long-term. >> president cook: and that's our site and the school website -- >> yep, it's all on the same platform. >> president cook: and you touched on one person coming onto help schools either market or update their websites. >> we have one person to coordinate thousands of pages. >> president cook: okay. so the content specialist is focused on all schools?
>> yeah. >> president cook: and so if that school doesn't have a person updating their own content, that person will be able to update the content for them? >> so given the number of school sites, it would be difficult to say we with do that to all sites, so i think what we would be doing is providing an equitiable approach for it, and more intensive support for schools that have the highest need. and generally, what we want to be able to do is help that school give us the content, and then, if they don't have somebody there that can load it, we can load it, but i don't know that we'd have the capacity to write original copy for each school every time they wanted to change something. >> president cook: yeah, i wasn't sure that was going to happen. i wanted to make sure that was clear. >> yes. we need to manage ekt expectations. i appreciate you giving me the chance to say that. >> president cook: what about managing sites that are not part of sfusd?
can you address that? >> that's a great question. so first, we are going to ask that all the schools in the district come over on the drupal platform, and all the schools that are currently using the other district supported c.m.s. that we'll be phasing out the end of june. i think one of the challenges will be, you know, questions that come up, such as there's a school that has a really robust great, high functioning website that they've developed, and is that something that we are going to say, you know, you need to move into this platform, and if so, how -- you know, what's the timeline and are we -- i think we're still looking at those types of questions. >> president cook: okay. okay. thank you.
section i, consent calendar, items removed at previous meeting. there are none tonight. section j, introduction of proposals and assignment to committee. number one, we have public and board comments or proposals. number two, for first reading -- [inaudible] >> president cook: for this item? okay. i have two cards for miss fisher. so i'm at number one for seven and nine.
[inaudibl >> hi again. so i'm here to talk about the two board policies that are items seven and nine in section j. we're talking specifically about graduation participation for students with i.e.p.s as well as nonpublic agencies and nonpublic school assignment. and the c.a.c. is grateful that we're starting conversations and developing these policies. we look forward to being part of a robust discussion surrounding these. >> president cook: miss casco, if you can start the -- >> clerk: yeah. >> when we're talking about nonpublic schools and nonpublic agencies, one of the things that caught my eye is the statement that the superintendent or designee shall notify the board prior to approving an out of state
placement for any district student. and i'm sure you're all aware of our federal regulations -- 34 c.f.r. 31 00 that defines what an i.e.p. is. each school has a school representative on it that understand's the district's services. provision of designated instruction, and knowledge about the availability of resources. and particularly when we're talking about nonpublic schools and specifically when we're talking about our out-of-state placement, we're talking generally about students in crisis. we're talking about students who the public schools have not worked for any number of reasons, but these are not decisions that the i.e.p. team has made lightly, and the fact that these services and placements could be delayed based on this provision of a
policy could be in -- it could be a problem legally -- it's the way that the c.a.c. -- we want to have a more robust discussion about this to make sure that this policy isn't counter to our current laws around i.e.p.s. many of our students who are going to nonpublic schools and nonpublic agencies, their current placements haven't works, and so they're currently without a placement, out of school. and so the longer we deny them access to safe or their education, the more justice we're delaying these children. and the month of january is the month of dr. martin luther king's birthday, and we all know one of his more recognizable sayings is justice delayed is justice denied. let's make sure we support our marginalized students and give them placements immediately. thank you. >> president cook: thank you. for first reading, there are
on the two proposals and the policies? >> motion. >> second. >> president cook: thank you. i'm forwarding the proposals and policies to the rules committee. section l, let's see -- a report from board members. i have an announcement on the committee of the whole. vice president sanchez. >> vice president sanchez: can i come back to that later? >> president cook: yes. let's see. any board delegates to membership reports? all other reports, so if the board members want to share when your committees will be meeting. budget and business services. >> we're continuing that to be -- [inaudible] >> -- first wednesday at
6:00 a.m. [inaudible] >> -- and february 6 is our first meeting. >> president cook: i have the dates here. commissioner norton? >> commissioner norton: so the student assignment committee will remain the third monday of the month. that would fall on february 18, which is president's day, so we will actually have to reschedule it for february , but in other months, it will be the third monday. >> president cook: okay. buildings and grounds, this meeting on the fourth monday at 6:00 p.m., february 26 -- 25 at 6:00 p.m. is our first meeting. curriculum is meeting the second monday at 6:00 p.m., monday, february 11. is that a holiday? >> no, it's the 18th. >> president cook: okay. all right. rules committee.
>> vice president sanchez: rules committee is meeting the first monday of every month starting on the 4th of february , and we are deciding whether to have it at 4:30 or 5:00, so it'll be one of those times, yeah. >> president cook: okay. ad hoc committee on personnel matters and labor relations. >> we decided to move that to the second wednesday at 6:00 p.m. >> president cook: okay. thank you, commissioner collins. the ad hoc school district city college committee. >> we're in the process of locating dates with president trustee randolph and the school districts. >> president cook: great. section m, other informational items, there is none tonight. section n, we don't have any
>> president cook: we are back from closed session. i'm going to read the items. vote on items in closed session. there are none. i'll move and second the contract of the deputy superintendent of instruction with salaries set at grade 28 step 9 for a two year term. may i have a second? >> second. >> president cook: miss casco, please. >> clerk: thank you. [roll call] >> clerk: seven ayes.
>> president cook: number three, report from closed session, the board, by a vote of five ayes, approved the contract of one director on two matters of anticipated litigation. the board gave direction to general counsel. the board, by a prove of seven approved a settlement agreement in an employee termination matter. section q, adjournment. this concludes tonight's meeting. good night.
>> in november of 2016, california voters passed proposition 64. the adult use of marijuana act. san franciscans overwhelmingly approved it by nearly 75%. and the law went into effect in january of 2018. [♪] >> under california's new law, adults age 21 and over can legally possess up to 1 ounce of cannabis and grow up to six plants at home. adults in california can legally give up to 1 ounce to other
adults. >> in the state of california, we passed a law that said adult consumption is legal. if you are an adult and in possession of certain amounts, you will no longer be tried. you will not be arrested or prosecuted for that. that is changing the landscape dramatically. [♪] >> to legalization of cannabis could bring tremendous economic and social benefits to cities like san francisco. >> this industry is projected to reach $22 billion by the year 2020. and that is just a few years away. >> it can be a huge legal industry in california. i think very shortly, the actual growing of marijuana may become the biggest cash crop in the state and so you want that to be a legal tax paying cash crop, all the way down the line to a sales tax on the retail level. >> the california medical
industry is a 3 billion-dollar industry last year. anticipating that multiplier as 20, 30, 50 times in the consumer marketplace once adult use is really in place, you could go ahead and apply that multiplier to revenue. it will be huge. >> when that underground economy becomes part of the regular tax paying employment economy of the bay area, it not only has a direct impact, that money has a ripple impact through the economy as well. >> it is not just about retail. it is not just about the sensor. is about manufacturing pick a lot of innovative manufacturing is happening here in san francisco in addition to other parts of the state as well as the cultivation. we should be encouraging that. >> there is a vast array of jobs that are going to be available in the newly regulated cannabis industry. you can start at the top tier which a scientist working in
testing labs. scientists working at extraction companies. and you work towards agricultural jobs. you have ones that will require less education and you look towards cannabis retail and see traditional retail jobs and you see general management jobs. those things that are similar to working at a bar restaurant or working at a retail store. >> we are offering, essentially, high paid manufacturing jobs. typical starting wage of 18-$20 an hour, almost no barrier to entry, you do not need an education. >> that means that people who do not have college educations, working-class people, will have an opportunity to have a job at cultivating cannabis plants. there's a whole wide array of job opportunities from the seedling to the sale of the cannabis. [♪] >> last year, they said 26 million people came to san francisco. >> the tourism industry continues to be very robust here
and the city and county of san francisco is about a billion-dollar industry. >> if we use a conservative cannabis user adoption rate to 15% that means 4 million tourists want that means 4 million tourists want to purchase cannabis. and we need to be ready for th them. >> in 2015, as adult use legalization efforts gained momentum in california, the supervisors created the san francisco cannabis state legalization task force. this task force offered to research and advice to the supervisors, the mayor and other city departments. >> we knew that adult use legalization was coming to the ballot and stat that would bring with it a number of decisions that the city would have to make about zoning and regulation and so forth. and i decided at that time, at a know it was a great, that rather than have a fire drill after the ballot measure passes, as suspected it would, we should
plan an event. so i authored a task force to spend a year studying it and we made it a broad-based task force. >> we prepared ourselves by developing a health impact assessment and partnered that with key stakeholder discussions with washington, oregon, colorado, to really learn lessons from their experience rolling out both adult and medicinal cannabis. >> within days of the passing of the proposition, ed lee called on agencies to act decisively. >> he issued an executive order asking the department of public health, along with planning and other city departments to think through an internal working group around what we needed to do to consider writing this law. >> we collectively, i would say that was representatives from g.s.a., as well as the mayor's office, met with a lot of departments to talk through what
prop 64 and the implementation of prop 64 it meant to them. >> the mayor proposed an office of cannabis, a one-stop shop for permits allowing operators to grow and sell cannabis. >> he wanted a smart structure. he wanted a regulatory structure that ensured that kids didn't have access and community's were safe and that consumers were safe. and he wanted to ensure, more importantly, it was a regulatory structure that encouraged diversity and inclusivity. >> this is an office that will be solely charged with a duty of wanting not only the policies that we create, implementing and enforcing them, but also executing the licenses that are needed. we're talking about 20 different licenses that will put us into compliance with what is happening on the state level. >> this is a highly, highly regulated industry now, at this point. we have anywhere from 7-10 departments that will be working
with these industry participants as they go through the permitting process. that is a lot of work at a loss of coordination. we are creating a permitting process that is smart and is digital. it is much easier for the user and for community input, and is less mired in bureaucracy. >> for the first time ever in san francisco history, standalone licenses are available for all aspects of the nonretail side of the cannabis industry. now, a cultivator can go in to the department of building inspection and to the department of health and say, with this first registered and temporary license, and then what will eventually be a permanent license, this is the project, this is what i am going to do. >> very rarely in city government do we interact with industries that are asking to be regulated. these guys want to be regulated. they want to be compliant.
they want to work with the city. that is rare. >> san francisco has created a temporary licensing process so that the pre-existing operators here in san francisco can apply for a temporary state licensed. >> we have taken teams of up to 12 inspectors to inspect the facility twice a day. we have been doing that with the department of building inspection and the department of public health. and the fire department. >> it is really important for the industry to know that we are treating them like industry. like manufacturing. like coworkers pick so that is the way we are approaching this from a health and safety and a consumer protection network. this is just the way practice happens with restaurants or manufacturing facilities. >> because there are so many pieces of industry that people haven't even thought about. there are different permits for each piece. you have to set up a permitting
system for growing, for manufacturing, for testing. for delivery. for retail. you have to make sure that there is an appropriate health code. certainly the regulation of alcohol in terms of restaurants and retail it's probably a model for how this industry will be regulated as well, both on sale and consumption. >> it is completely uncharted territory. there is a blessing and a curse with that. it is exciting because we are on a new frontier, but it is very nerve-racking because there's a lot at stake. and quite frankly, being san francisco, being the state of california, people are looking to us. >> we hope that cannabis does become more of an accepted part of society in the same way that alcohol is, the same way coffee is. >> it is a very innovative fear, particularly around manufacturing. san francisco could be an

[♪] >> i moved to the richmond district in 1950 mine. i was two years old. i moved from chinatown and we
were one of the first asian families to move out here. [♪] >> when my mother decided to buy that house, nobody knew where it was. it seems so far away. for a long time, we were the only chinese family there but we started to see the areas of growth to serve a larger chinese population. the stress was storage of the birthplace of that. my father would have to go to chinatown for dim sum and i remember one day he came home and said, there is one here now. it just started to grow very organically. it is the same thing with the russian population, which is another very large ethnic group in the richmond district. as russia started to move in, we saw more russian stores. so parts of the richmond is very concentrated with the russian community and immigrant russian community, and also a chinese
immigrant community. [♪] >> i think as living here in the richmond, we really appreciate the fact that we are surrounded three natural barriers. they are beautiful barriers. the presidio which gives us so many trails to walk through, ocean beach, for families to just go to the beach and be in the pacific ocean. we also also have a national park service. we boarded the golden gate national recreation area so there is a lot of activity to do in the summer time you see people with bonfires. but really families enjoying the beach and the pacific ocean during the rest of the time of year. [♪] >> and golden gate park where we have so many of our treasures here. we have the tea garden, the museum and the academy of sciences. not to mention the wonderful playgrounds that we have here in
richmond. this is why i say the richmond is a great place for families. the theatre is a treasure in our neighborhood. it has been around for a very long time. is one of our two neighborhood theatres that we have here. i moved here when i was 1959 when i was two years old. we would always go here. i love these neighborhood theatres. it is one of the places that has not only a landmark in the richmond district, but also in san francisco. small theatres showing one or two films. a unique -- they are unique also to the neighborhood and san francisco. >> where we are today is the heart of the richmond district. with what is unique is that it is also small businesses. there is a different retail here it is mom and pop opening up businesses.
and providing for the neighborhood. this is what we love about the streets. the cora door starts on clement street and goes all the way down to the end of clement where you will see small businesses even towards 32nd. at the core of it is right here between here and 20 -- tenth avenue. when we see this variety of stores offered here, it is very unique then of the -- any other part of san francisco. there is traditional irish music which you don't get hardly anywhere in san francisco. some places have this long legacy of serving ice cream and being a hangout for families to have a sunday afternoon ice cream. and then also, we see grocery stores. and also these restaurants that are just new here, but also thriving. [♪]
>> we are seeing restaurants being switched over by hand, new owners, but what we are seeing is a vibrancy of clement street still being recaptured within new businesses that are coming in. that is a really great thing to see. i don't know when i started to shop here, but it was probably a very, very long time ago. i like to cook a lot but i like to cook chinese food. the market is the place i like to come to once a year. once i like about the market as it is very affordable. it has fresh produce and fresh meat. also, seafood. but they also offer a large selection of condiments and sauces and noodles. a variety of rice that they have is tremendous. i don't thank you can find a variety like that anywhere else. >> hi. i am kevin wong. i am the manager. in 1989 we move from chinatown to richmond district. we have opened for a bit, over
29 years. we carry products from thailand, japan, indonesia, vietnam, singapore and india. we try to keep everything fresh daily. so a customer can get the best out a bit. >> normally during crab season in november, this is the first place i hit. because they have really just really fresh crab. this is something my family really likes for me to make. also, from my traditional chinese food, i love to make a kale soup. they cut it to the size they really want. i am probably here once a week. i'm very familiar with the aisles and they know everyone who is a cashier -- cashier here i know when people come into a market such as this, it looks like an asian supermarkets, which it is and sometimes it can be intimidating. we don't speak the language and many of the labels are in
chinese, you may not know what to buy or if it is the proper ingredients for the recipe are trying to make. i do see a lot of people here with a recipe card or sometimes with a magazine and they are looking for specific items. the staff here is very helpful. i speak very little chinese here myself. thinks that i'm not sure about, i asked the clerk his and i say is this what i need? is this what i should be making? and they actually really helped me. they will bring me to the aisle and say this is battery. they are very knowledgeable. very friendly. i think they are here to serve not only the asian community but to serve all communities in the richmond district and in san francisco. [♪] >> what is wonderful about living here is that even though our july is a very foggy and overcast, best neighborhood, the sleepy part outside on the west side is so rich with history, but also with all the amenities that are offered.
>> this neighborhood was lived for approximately 22 years. >> yeah, like 21 years. >> 21 years in this neighborhood. >> in the same house. >> we moved into this neighborhood six months after we got married, actually. just about our whole entire married life has been here in excel. >> the owner came to the house and we wanted to sell the house
and we were like, what? we were scared at first. what are we going to do? where are we going to move into? the kids' school? our jobs? >> my name is maria. i'm a preschool teacher for the san francisco unified school district. >> my name is ronnie and i work in san francisco and i'm a driver from a local electrical company. >> we went through meta first and meta helped us to apply and be ready to get the down payment assistant loan program. that's the program that we used to secure the purchase of our home. it took us a year to get our credit ready to get ready to apply for the loan.
>> the whole year we had to wait and wait through the process and then when we got the notice, it's like, we were like thinking that. >> when we found out that we were settling down and we were going to get approved and we were going to go forward, it was just a really -- we felt like we could breathe. we have four kids and so to find a place even just to rent for a family of six. and two dogs. >> we were going to actually pay more for rent and to own a house. >> it feels good now to have to move. it feels for our children to stay in the neighborhood that they have grown in. they grew up here and they were born here. they know this neighborhood. they don't know anything outside san francisco. >> we really have it. >> we'd love to say thank you to the mayor's office. they opened a door that we thought was not possible to be opened for us.
