4:00 am
>> i also noticed that the vietnamese language program is not mentioned in the proposal or the budget. i just wanted to remind you that my son who was in t.k. when that program was approved still will be in third next year, and as far as i know, we haven't made any plans to fund teachers in the vietnamese language program. i also was moved by the folks who spoke for delac and professional development, and noticed there was a movement to cut t.k. from the budget. i'm curious to understand that funding and what's happening there. thank you have a good night. >> hi. i'm tracey brown gallardo.
4:01 am
i'm a member of the peace adviso advise -- peef advisory committee, and i just wanted to tell you a little bit about the peef -- >> president cook: sorry, tracey, i wanted to wait until miss casco started your time. go ahead. >> so what happened is a lot of people have been coming to the peef advisory committing and pitching us proposals that they want to see happening at school does. it can be a whole new program for immigrant students, it can be community schools. we've had different pitches come to the peef oversight committee. we actually don't entertain new proposals. that's not part of the process, and i just wanted to share the process with board members because i'm not sure that you know that that's the process? so we are a group of very qualified individuals -- thank
4:02 am
you for the appointments from you guys? we have the capacity to look at other proposals if there was a process that would be opened up? and with the eraf money becoming available in addition to what's already there, we're hoping that there can be some opportunity for us to given sig -- insight -- give insight. so i put this before you guys for consideration. there are definitely things that i want to propose and looking forward to make those recommendations? we're looking at a lot of pitch school recommendations. we want to recommend more money go to serve our african american students in the bayview and some services for immigrant students? and so we've kind of put in the recommendations but again, we're not in a position to advocate for them because it's not part of our process. our process is to review what
4:03 am
is given to us by the district, and so thank you guys. if there's a new process with additional eraf funding, we would be happy to look at that. thanks. >> hello again. my comment i think follows very well on tracy's. i attended a recent peef c.a.c. meeting with the intention of proposing or going and asking for some proposals for students related to i.e.p.s. for example, peef funds would be great at funding our experimental field trips with students. often students with 1:1 aides get left out on a field trip. and we as a c.a.c., right now,
4:04 am
we don't have a paid district liaison. our district liaison is two lines in the special education ombudsman's role. is that equitiable? i don't think so. last time i was up here, my pay grade was zero. so there's a lot of things we would like to do with peef c.a.c. if we had the opportunity to present. trust me, i could find recommendations to spend all of that eraf money myself. but yeah, we look forward to working with you and making recommendations and participate. thank you. [inaudible] >>. >> president cook: -- 2267 p-1, the 2019-2020 public education
4:05 am
expenditure plan, also board policy 3460, financial reports and accountability, board policy 6152.1, math placement policy, board policy 5141.52, suicide prevention, and board policy 1312.3, uniform complaint procedures. >> president cook: section k, proposals for immediate action. there are none. section 3, board member
4:06 am
reports. commissioner sanchez? >> vice president sanchez: [inaudible] -- we don't have a secure timeline on all the funding yet, but we're very hopeful that we'll be able to makeup the private capital campaign of -- let's see -- it's about 107 to $127 million that's still in traffic funds that we need to complete the project. it's a good presentation if the public wants to see it. just go to and go to board agendas and you can access it there. >> president cook: thank you. report from ad hoc committee on personnel matters. commissioner collins? >> commissioner collins: yeah. actually, we had a really engaging meeting? we only had one topic that
4:07 am
really fits into a lot of what we're talking about, and a lot of the programs we can't really have unless we have qualified teachers, and for some of those programs, it's harder to recruit. so it was interesting hearing what the district was doing in ferms of both the personnel department, working with the multilingual department to reach out to native speakers and help them get into training programs so that they can fill some of these gaps that we have? and so that was interesting, and also just seeing the diversity of language programs in our district was amazing? we also learned about the challenges in hiring arabic and vietnamese teachers for our programs, and it seems to be holding us back from fully implementing programs and also especially in the middle schools but also for vietnamese, as well. so we were looking at ways that central office could better partner with community based
4:08 am
agencies to help expand our capacity in both recruiting teachers and also just letting families know about some of the great programs that we have in our district. and so i'm looking forward to hopefully following some of that discussion up in the curriculum committee if there's an opportunity to discuss language programs and see how we can continue to look at implementation plans and how we can further really support the language programs and being as robust as we would really like to see. >> president cook: okay. thank you. last night, for buildings and grounds, we had two action items which were proposed name changes, and apparently one of them is a surprise, even though it's a public agenda. and we also have an update on the francis scott key development project.
4:09 am
let's see...any board delegates membership organization reports? okay. and we are going to appoint commissioner collins and commissioner lam to the c.s.b. any other reports by board members? and we're also reappointing -- reappointing commissioner norton. >> commissioner norton: thank you. >> president cook: you're welcome. thank you. let's see...we have a calendar of committee meeting. budget and business services will be meeting wednesday, march 6, at 6:00 p.m. buildings and grounds will be meeting monday, march 25, at 6:00 p.m. that's by far the best
4:10 am
committee meeting. >> vice president sanchez: better than rules? >> president cook: not even close. rules policy and legislation will be meeting monday, march 4 at 5:00 p.m. the ad hoc committee on student assignment will be meeting monday, march 18 at 6:00 p.m. the ad hoc committee on personnel matters will be meeting wednesday, march 13 at 6:00 p.m., and the ad hoc school district city college joint committee will be meeting to be determined. let's see, section m, other informational items? posted in the agenda is the staff quality reports. section n, memorial adjournment, we are adjourning our meeting tonight in memory of jeff adachi, san francisco's
4:11 am
public defender. so we all have -- a lot of us have our own personal memories of mr. adachi, and from the suggestion and guidance of miss casco, i am going to read something that i wrote about mr. adachi, and if anyone wants to chime in afterwards, feel free. so this write up is called saucy like adachi. saucy, adjective. explain, definition. hip-hop artists have been using the term saucy for swagger. date, christmas eve 2013.
4:12 am
time, 6:58 a.m. i googled the weather in san francisco to give you an idea of how cold it was. the top search results came from helico. even for san francisco, i rushed from my apartment to make the meeting on time and i made it on time, which is unusual for me. i couldn't be late for this meeting. 7:00 a.m., i see jeff adachi rounding the corner, as usual, his hair was slicked back, not a wrinkle in his custom tailored suit. he walked with purpose, the type of purpose where everything slows down slightly, like the movie scenes where the hero enters to assert order in the space. my disheveled state was the bad
4:13 am
guy, and he was the order. he asked me if i needed anything to eat, then he cut to the chase. so school board, hey, so i don't get it. tell me why on earth would you want to do something like that? his eye set upon me with a serious gaze to ensure he wasn't joking as if concerned whether or not i was slightly insane. i fumbled through my answer for a while before he stopped me. yes, yes, stevon, those are all nice, but what are your plans? he began to ask deeper questions about the issues, started to share his concerns of our schools -- for our schools and their possibilities. his commentary about education started to shift into advice
4:14 am
for how he could best navigate the road ahead. you have to be prepared for every meeting. trust in your story. it's a powerful one, and you have my support, stevon. add me to your list of endorsers. i thanked him. i didn't tell him he was my only supporter. that remains the case for the next five or six months as politicos played the game entirely and delayed to endorse me. i came back to his countless times with my ideas, thoughts, and questions. he always made time. he always replied. he had my back. jeff had our backs. whether it was the thousands of backpacks he gave out through the magic zone initiative, the resource offered the under
4:15 am
privileged in court, the immigrants he wanted to protect from deportation, jeff had all of our backs without complaint and always with style. jeff was saucy. he had the old school charm of a man who knew how to pay attention to the little things. he gave gifts, wrote hah handwritten messages, but never talked about how he dressed. he let you do that. he showed up with others and never made himself the center of attention. i had the honor of public defender adachi swearing me in when i assumed public office. i took an oath before god and the constitution to defend san francisco against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
4:16 am
i could never beat jeff adachi, but if i were in public office, i wanted everyone to know jeff was my standard bearer. jeff is gone. san francisco lost an important member of our community on friday night. for selfish reasons, i want another conversation. i want to share just how much of an impact he had on me. that's not possible for me or the thousands of people that jeff inspired. we have an example to remember, his legacy to carry, but none among us will ever be as saucy as the homie jeff, not one. rest in power, jeff adachi.
4:17 am
closed session, section o. thus, i call a closed session of the regular board meeting. >> clerk: excuse me, mr. president, i think you have public comment. >> president cook: my apologies. at this time, we will take public comment for those who have submitted speaker cards for closed session items. we have cheryl lee and deborah eslaburton. >> good evening, commissioners. i'm going to give most of my time to debra.

4:21 am
in special education i.e.p.s. i've been on both sides of the table. she's sensitive, she's thoughtful, and she advocates for a balance so that there are places that students can get services and a balance of accessibility to the mainstream classrooms. i also want you to honor the recommendation of our chief of special education, jean robertson, and our superintendent, dr. matthews. we recommend people from our hearts, from our knowledge, and from data points, and we put these out there to look at carefully. so as you go into closed session, and you look at those contracts, i'm asking you to renew patricia field dietrich. i'm asking you to think about what you put in place as far as

which is sometimes hard to find in san francisco. this simple restaurant so brightly lit on the corner of broadway and stockton was known to us for a long time as the coca-cola restaurant as it had a big coca-cola icon on it at one time. i want to say this is a restaurant that represent the chinese immigrants that came from canton, china and also from hong kong to eat really authentic food and also a gathering place for many families. when i'm there i also see many families filling full tables and also it's a popular tourist attraction in chinatown. commissioners, today, i give my recommendation for new world market and yuet lee restaurant and hope you'll give them the prestigious legacy award. >> commissioner: thank you very much. next speaker, please.
4:43 am
>> thank you, commissioners. my name is lauren stu i work with the oewd. yuet lee is one of my clients. thank you supervisor fewer. sam lee the owner, has planned to come over but he had an emergency so he couldn't make it so "want to say some words for them to extend what supervisor fewer said. they are an icon in chinatown and i know when i worked with sam i know that because he has been around for over 40 years and has helped a number of his employees because of the job. they were able to support the families coming over from their hometown in hong kong or china.

4:46 am
but spiritual. and the family's been really passionate and hard working and dedicated to the s&s grocery. and they like the way we serve the community and we work really hard and one good thing about us is a lot of customers are single and they live by themselves and they always come to ask for help and one thing is they drop off the key us. that's really telling me the community trusts us and we've been here since 1959.
4:47 am
also i feel like we're part community. and like everyone said they left their heart in san francisco and i can tell you guys i left my heart in north beach in san francisco. the thing about today is the landlord has been increasing more than 100% of our rent. that will force us to go out of business. if you guys would be able to recognize us as a legacy business it may be able to help support us to be there staying in business otherwise we'll have to and up want to thank you all the legacy program staff. they've worked hard and help us and aaron peskin's office in helping us try to get through the will lease situation.

cannabis activity. we requested a list from scott in rec and park to aask for a description that may include the events and 420 and strictly and how weird and pride fest and carnival. >> well, the grateful dead aren't playing anymore. >> that's not an exhaustive list by the criteria we would use. >> outside land is too much of a public serving event. they should be carefully curated to be highly cannabis specific. i'm not a cannabis hater. i just think because cannabis consumption unlike alcohol has an ex ternality that you can smell it and it's not pleasant to all, i kind of feel like this requires more scrutiny than just giving an alcohol permit to an
4:59 am
event. >> >> the office of cannabis is required to consult other city departments. so what other city departments and how do you ensure you have consultation with all of them. do you have a checklist? >> essentially this does not create a new permitting process. so for all the events referenced that would already be essentially applying for a permit, you would additionally support a cannabis events permit alongside it. all the regulating authority with regard to parks and rec, if appropriate, or the san francisco police department would still be responsible for issuing the permit. we'd just have the opportunity to issue a cannabis-specific permit.
5:00 am
it doesn't essentially replace it just a permit. >> a tack-on? >> exactly. >> commissioner: commissioner dooley. >> i wond her what your plans will be for -- i wonder what your plans will be for mitigating smoke like commissioner dwight said, not everyone likes pot smoke. i'm wondering what you're planning on going in terms of protected others not interested. >> commissioner: neighbors, for example. >> here's a question where we'd work with the department of public health for anyone interested in applying for a consumption permit to regulate that kind of event so as the not externalities associated with this. >> commissioner: i can see it at
