[00:10:02]

AROUND. EXCUSE ME, LET ME START BY THANKING DOCTOR MCGLOCKLIN PRESIDENT GOLDBERG, DISTRICT ADMINISTRATION FOR INVITING ME TO SPEAK TONIGHT ON BEHALF OF SEDAC, THE SPECIAL EDUCATION DISTRICT ADVISORY COUNCIL. I ALSO WANT TO THINK DOCTOR AARON RODERICK, MISS AMANDA GLOVER, DOCTOR SHEENA EGAN'S FOR YOUR COLLABORATION AND SUPPORT. THANK YOU TO DOCTOR MCGLOCKLIN , BOARD OF TRUSTEES AND DISTRICT ADMINISTRATORS FOR COMING TO OUR MEETINGS AND LISTENING TO OUR SUCCESSES AND CONCERNS AND ALSO TO THOSE WHO PRESENTED AND COLLABORATED WITH THE SPECIAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT. AND FINALLY TO CALLIE CRAWFORD FOR SUPPORTING THE SPECIAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT AND ENSURING EVERYTHING IS DONE AND READY FOR US TO HAVE SUCCESSFUL SEDAC MEETINGS. WE STARTED THE SCHOOL YEAR WITH PRESENTATIONS BY ME AND VICE CHAIR AARON BELL. A REVIEW OF THE CALIFORNIA DASHBOARD, THE SEDAC PRIORITIES AND THE ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF A SEDAC REP. OUR PRIORITIES AND VISION HAVE REMAINED THE SAME THIS YEAR AND ALIGNED WITH PRIORITIES AND L CAP GOALS.

OUR NEXT PRESENTATION FOCUSED ON TRANSITIONS FROM PRESCHOOL THROUGH PRO SECONDARY GIVEN BY MS. THOMAS AND DOCTOR RODERICK.

THE FIRST MISSION FROM THE PRESENTATION AND FEEDBACK FROM REPS VIA A SURVEY HELPED GUIDE THE FOCUS OF OUR TRANSITIONS COMMITTEE THAT WILL BE CREATING A DOCUMENT WITH TRANSITION RESOURCES FOR ALL GRADES BENT INTO ADULTHOOD AND THEY WILL PRESENTED AT THE MAY MEETING. ANOTHER PRESENTATION THIS YEAR ALSO GIVEN BY MS. THOMAS AND DOCTOR RODERICK WAS AN UPDATE ON THE NEW STRATEGIC FOR INCLUSION WITH FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES. WE LEARNED ABOUT ALL THE FANTASTIC INCLUSIVE PROGRAMS AND INITIATIVES THAT ARE HAPPENING IN OUR DISTRICT. AND WE WERE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE WHAT HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL AT OUR SCHOOLS AND GIVE FEEDBACK. IT WAS GREAT TO SEE THE WORK THAT IS BEING DONE INCLUDING PLANS FOR THE FUTURE TO IMPROVE OUR RESTRICTIVE ENVIRONMENT RATES AND THE OPPORTUNITIES OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES TO ENGAGE AND BECOME FRIENDS WITH YOUR TYPICAL STUDENTS. NEXT, VENTURA COUNTY SPECIAL EDUCATION LOCAL PLAN AREA OR THIS CAME TO SPEAK ON IUP PROCESS PARTICIPATION PROCESS AND HOW THEY ARE A RESOURCE FOR FAMILIES OR THOSE THAT DO NOT AGREE WITH AN IEP. I GOT FEEDBACK FROM REPS ON HOW HELPFUL IT WAS FOR THEM AND TO HELP THEM FULLY UNDERSTAND IEP PROCESS EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE BEEN THROUGH THAT PROCESS IN THEIR SCHOOLS. ALREADY. I'M SURE THIS WILL BE HELPFUL FOR PARENTS TO MORE FULLY ENGAGE DURING BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER AN IEP. YESTERDAY WAS OUR LATEST SEDAC MEETING WHICH CONSISTED OF TABLE TALKS WE HAD SEVEN TABLES, THAT REPRESENTATIVES REP ROTATED AROUND TO AND THEY WERE ABLE TO ENGAGE WITH DISTRICT PERSONNEL WITH TOPICS LIKE COMMUNICATION AND ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY.

BUDGET AND PSYCHOLOGIST AS WELL AS INTRODUCING COMMUNITY AGENCIES LIKE TRI-COUNTIES REGIONAL CENTER AND VENTURA COUNTIES FAMILY EMPOWERMENT CENTER RAINBOW CONNECTION. I AGAIN GOT FEEDBACK FROM PEOPLE PEOPLE LEARNED A LOT. AND WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE THIS DONE ON A BIGGER SCALE IN THE EVENING WHERE MORE PARENTS CAN PARTICIPATE. I MENTIONED THE TRANSITION COMMITTEE AND WE HAVE THREE ADDITIONAL COMMITTEES. SAFETY, ALSO HELPED BRING ATTENTION TO SAFETY CONCERNS AFTER THEIR FEEDBACK MISS THOMAS AND MISS GLOVER DID AN AMAZING JOB FACILITATING RESTORATIVE JUSTICE PRACTICE CIRCLE WITH PARENTS AND STAFF TO PROVIDE EQUITY OF VOICE AND LISTEN TO THOSE WITH VARIOUS CONCERNS. I ATTENDED A SEDAC CHAIR AND FELT THE FORMAT WAS VERY PRODUCTIVE AND WAS HAPPY TO HEAR THAT THIS IS BEING USED IN OTHER AREAS AROUND THE DISTRICT. OUR INCLUSION COMMITTEE HAS BEEN FOCUSING ON TWO MAIN PRIORITIES. DISCOVERING HOW CURRICULUM AND PROGRAMS USED IN SPECIAL EDUCATION ARE CHOSEN AND REVIEWED FOR EFFICACY. AND SHARING FEEDBACK ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE STRATEGIC PLAN FOR INCLUSION. AS WE FINISH THE SCHOOL YEAR THE COMMITTEE PLANS TO GATHER ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THE EDUCATIONAL ONLINE PLATFORMS USED BY STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES AND ACCESS BY THEIR FAMILIES, AND PLANS TO VERBALIZE REQUEST TO THE DISTRICT, AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THEIR YEAR END REPORT IN MAY.

THE DISABILITY CELEBRATIONS COMMITTEE HAS BEEN CONTINUING TO UPDATE THE DISABILITY CELEBRATIONS TOOLKIT. ADDING ADDITIONAL INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE TO LEARN ABOUT AND SHARE THEIR STORY AND BE ABLE TO SHARE THEIR STORIES ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

AND ADDING ADDITIONAL RESOURCES FOR ALL AGES ON DISABILITIES.

THE COMMITTEE ALSO REQUESTED TO THE BOARD AND THANK YOU FOR APPROVING, THE PROCLAMATION FOR DISABILITY HISTORY MONTH FOR MARCH. WE LEARNED YESTERDAY FROM DOCTOR EGAN AT

[00:15:04]

OUR SEDAC MEETING THAT LGBT ADVISORY COUNCIL LOVE THE DISABILITY CELEBRATION TOOLKIT. AND BOTH ADVISORY COUNCILS ARE PLANNING TO CREATE SOMETHING SIMILAR. I HAVE LEARNED SO MUCH FROM THE TOOLKIT INCLUDING ABOUT ALL THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE. IN FACT YESTERDAY I STOPPED BY THE CITY LIBRARY AND AS I DO EVERY TIME I GO I WENT TO THE USED BOOK SECTION. AS I WAS BROWSING THROUGH, I FOUND THE BIOGRAPHY EVERY DAY IS A GIFT BY TAMMY DUCKWORTH. ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO WERE FEATURED IN THE TOOLKIT. THE TOOLKIT GAVE ME A SNEAK PEEK INTO HER LIFE AS A DISABLED SENATOR AND I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO READING MORE ABOUT HER LIFE IN DETAILS AND ABOUT HOW HER DISABILITY SHAPED HER TO BECOME THE INFLUENTIAL PERSON SHE IS TODAY. ONE OF MY PRIORITIES IS FOCUSED ON COMMUNICATION AS AN EXECUTIVE BOARD WE MEET AFTER EACH GENERAL MEETING AND CHOOSE THE TOP WAYS TO SHARE WITH THE REPS, THIS YEAR THE SPECIAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT HAS ALSO EMAILED THIS INFORMATION TO ALL PRINCIPALS. INCLUDE LINKS TO THE RESOURCES DISCUSSED IN THE PRESENTATIONS. HOPEFULLY THIS IS AIDING AND GIVING THE INFORMATION OUT TO ALL WHO BENEFIT FROM IT. ESPECIALLY SINCE OUR PROCESS CONTINUES TO

BE AN ONGOING CHALLENGE. >> SPEAKING OF CHALLENGES OUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE REMAINS THAT WE ONLY MEET SIX TIMES A YEAR.

A COMMITTEE CERTAINLY HELPS TO ADDRESS SOME OF OUR GREATEST AREAS OF NEED BUT AS WE LOOK TO OUR NEWLY UPDATED DASHBOARD NUMBERS FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES WE CAN SEE THERE IS STILL A LOT OF WORK TO BE DONE TO IMPROVE THE SUCCESS OF THE STUDENT GROUP. ANOTHER CHALLENGE WE HAVE IS JUST BALANCING HER PRESENTATIONS OF THE INFORMATION IS MEANINGFUL.

AND ACCESSIBLE TO THE NEW AND SEASONED REPS. ALMOST HALF ARE NEW. AND WE NEED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION IN A WAY THAT EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS WILL DISC GUS HIGH-LEVEL TOPICS LIKE THE L CAP. SPEAKING OF THE L CAP. WE HAVE BEEN PROVIDING INPUT AND LEARNING FROM THE UPDATES THAT ARE HAPPENING THIS WILL HELP ALL REPRESENTATIVES BE BETTER PREPARED TO GIVE MEANINGFUL COLLABORATION DURING THE PROCESS LATER THIS YEAR. I ALSO WANT TO GIVE A HUGE SHOUT OUT TO ALICE TO FOR STEPPING UP AS THE BUDGET DISTRICT COMMITTEE. AND THEN AGREEING TO CHAIR THE COMMITTEE. NOT A SMALL FEAT AND THE TIME AND EFFORT AS A VOLUNTEER TO DO THAT IS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.

WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR LAST MEETING IN MAY AND AGAIN WOULD LOVE TO SEE ALL OF YOU THERE. WE WILL BE HEARING ABOUT A LOT OF THE GREAT SUCCESSES THAT ARE HAPPENING AROUND THE DISTRICT AS THEY PERTAIN TO INCLUSION IN STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES. IT HAS BEEN AN HONOR TO LEAD THE MEETING SO FAR THIS YEAR AND MEET SO MANY GREAT PEOPLE IN BOTH SHARE AND LEARN ABOUT THE RESOURCES IN OUR COUNTY, THANK

YOU. >> THANK YOU. SEDAC CONTINUES TO LEAD THE WAY IN RESOURCES AND EXAMPLES FOR OTHER DISTRICT ADVISORY COUNCILS AND I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR

FIRST OFF THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE K KIDS AND I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO PLEASE ATTEND THE CROP WALK ON MARCH 17 IT WILL PROBABLY BE A FANTASTIC EVENT AND BE A HUGE STEP IN HELPING TO END HUNGER FOR CHILDREN. ADDITIONALLY IF YOU HAVE ANY GENTLY USED INSTRUMENTS PLEASE DONATE THEM TO THE PLAY IT FORWARD PROGRAM. HAVING BEEN A PART OF INSTRUMENTS OF MUSIC PROGRAMS ONE OF THE BIGGEST BARRIERS TO ENTRY IS THE COST OF AN INSTRUMENT. AND BEING ABLE TO USE ONE IS A HUGE STEP IN ALLOWING STUDENTS TO BE ABLE TO JOIN THESE PROGRAMS THAT WILL BENEFIT THEM IN THEIR ACADEMIC JOURNEYS. ADDITIONALLY WITH IT BEING WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH AND THE DISABILITY HISTORY MONTH THERE IS ALL THE MORE JOY AND INTENTION FOR US TO FIND AND LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE HISTORY OF PEOPLE IN OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES AS WELL AS THE ONES DISTANT TO US. I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO TAKE TIME THIS MONTH TO DO A BIT OF RESEARCH, READ A BOOK AND HAVE INTERESTING CONVERSATIONS. I WAS HAPPY TO HELP FACILITATE THE FEBRUARY MIDDLE SCHOOL ADVISORY GROUP MEETING . WE HAD SOME INTERESTING CONVERSATIONS ABOUT DRESS CODE AND CAMPUS SAFETY AS WELL AS REPORTING. IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN FANTASTIC TO HEAR ABOUT THE DIVERSE MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS ALL OVER THE DISTRICT AND I LOOK FORWARD TO OUR MARCH MEETING. THE YEAR IS FLYING BY AND AS WE HAD OUR GENERAL FEBRUARY MEETING ON FEBRUARY 26 SO THANK YOU SO MUCH TO MR. MERCER FOR THAT. WE STARTED IT OFF WITH A PRESENTATION FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE THOUSAND OAKS HIGH SCHOOL AND NEWBERRY PARK HIGH SCHOOL BLACK STUDENT UNIONS.

THEY SHARED STATISTICS ABOUT THEIR CLUB AS WELL AS HIGHLIGHTS AND AREAS OF NEED THAT CAN DO OUR BEST TO SUPPORT AND HELP ADDRESS IN THE FUTURE. WITH THAT FACILITATED COLLABORATION WE HOPE IT WILL CULTIVATE NEW GROWTH AND FOR BOTH STUDENTS AND THE COMMUNITY. HE THEN RECEIVED A PRESENTATION WITH AN UPDATE ON GENDER NEUTRAL BATHROOMS FOR MS. HARRISON, THERE ARE EXTENSIVE PLANS AT EACH COMPREHENSIVE HIGH SCHOOL TO INSTALL ALL ACCESS RESTROOMS WITH THE HOPES THEY WILL BE COMPLETED BY THE 2024 2025 SCHOOL YEAR SO I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING THAT LAYOUT ON HIGH SCHOOL SIDES.

I ALSO ATTENDED ASPEN'S FEBRUARY RECOGNITION AND BLACK HISTORY MONTH PRESENTATION THE THING THAT WAS SPECIAL ABOUT THAT WAS THAT THEY PRESENTED, BESIDES THE STUDENTS WHO WERE RECOGNIZED THEY PRESENTED A STORY OF WHAT HAPPENED TO BE A BLACK WOMAN , A STAGECOACH WRITER, THE FIRST ONE AND IT WAS ALL ABOUT THE DIFFICULTIES SHE HAD TO OVERCOME AS YOU COULD IMAGINE BUT IT WAS SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING. BECAUSE IT TALKED, THE KIDS SANG A SONG ABOUT NOT LETTING ANYBODY TAKE AWAY FROM YOU WHAT YOU ARE. AND I THOUGHT THAT WAS VERY INSPIRING AND IT WAS MIXING IN SEL WITH THE ACTIVITIES. I ATTENDED THE CONCERT FROM ONE SHINE AT THE END OF LAST MONTH . WAS ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL. I WILL NOT GO INTO HOW IMPRESSED I WAS WITH THAT BECAUSE I IT WAS ALREADY COVERED BUT I WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE COMMENTS OF THE STUDENTS AND THE ACTIVITIES OF SEDAC. WELLNESS COMMITTEE THE WELLNESS COMMITTEE REPORT, WE WORKED ON NUTRITION. OUR NUTRITION COMMITTEE IS SO SPECIAL IN THAT THEY ARE TRYING TO FIND THE RIGHT FOODS TO APPEAL TO EVERYBODY. AND TO ALL THE NEEDS OF OUR VARIED STUDENTS. SO I THOUGHT THAT WAS VERY IMPRESSIVE AND I WAS VERY IMPRESSED BY THAT REPORT. I WENT TO A BLACK HISTORY POTLUCK. AT TO HS. MY GOODNESS THAT WAS , IT WAS SO MUCH FUN TO SEE THE SPIRIT, THE PRIDE, THE INCLUSIVENESS. THE OWNERSHIP THAT THEY FELT AND I WANT TO CONGRATULATE MR. HUNTON , MR. HUTTON. FOR HIS REPORT OR FOR HIS WORK ON THAT COMMITTEE, IT WAS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. AND THAT'S ALL I

UP, TRUSTEE GIL. >> A GOOD EVENING EVERYBODY, READ ACROSS AMERICA'S ACTIVITIES DUFF ON FRIDAY AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE WEEK, I WAS VERY PLEASED PLEASED TO PARTICIPATE, AT ASPEN, AND TOMORROW AT EARTHS. ALWAYS APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE IN A CLASSROOM AND GET TO READ SOME GREAT BOOKS AND SHARE STORIES WITH OUR STUDENTS.

LET'S SEE, AS WE FINISHED OUT BLACK HISTORY MONTH LAST MONTH, I ATTENDED THE ONE SHINE YOUTH PERFORMANCE AT NEWBURGH PARK HIGH SCHOOL ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON. AND IT WAS ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR, THIS WAS OUR SECOND ANNUAL I THINK THEY OUTED THEMSELVES FROM THE PREVIOUS YEAR AND I AM ALREADY ANTICIPATING THEIR RETURN NEXT YEAR. LAST WEEK I WAS AGAIN AT NEWBERRY PARK HIGH SCHOOL AND IN THE GYMNASIUM THIS TIME FOR UNIFIED SPORTS BASKETBALL SOME OF YOU MAY HAVE SEEN THAT WE WERE ON TV, NBC DID ONE OF THEIR BRIGHT SPOT REPORTS, SHOWCASING OUR STUDENT ATHLETES AND JUST THE JOY AND ENERGY IN THAT PACT GYMNASIUM I WAS REALLY SO PRIVILEGED TO BE THERE AND IT WAS A LOT OF FUN. LAST WEEK, THERE WAS A MEETING LED BY DOCTOR ARIZA OF THE DUAL LANGUAGE STAKEHOLDER COMMITTEE.

AND WE GOT AN UPDATE ON ENROLLMENT FOR THIS COMING YEAR WHICH IS ROBUST. NUMBERS ARE NOT FINAL AS ENROLLMENT CONTINUES BUT, REALLY GOOD NEWS TO SEE THAT PROGRAM DRIVING DUE TO THE VERY HARD WORK OF DOCTOR VERIZON AND THE WHOLE TEAM AND A LOT OF HARD-WORKING FOLKS. DOCTOR ARIZA LED THE ROBUST DISCUSSION ABOUT HOW TO CONTINUE EFFORTS INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND CONTINUE TO KEEP THE ENROLLMENT OF THAT PROGRAM REALLY STRONG. SO DEFINITELY A POINT OF PRIDE.

AND THAT'S ALL I HAVE FOR TONIGHT. THANK YOU.

[00:35:01]

>> THANK YOU. TRUSTEE POWELL?

>> OKAY. HELLO EVERYBODY. GOOD EVENING AND I AM HAPPY TO BE HERE, AND HAPPY WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH, HAPPY DISABILITY HISTORY MONTH, HAPPY READ ACROSS AMERICA WEEK. I LOVED READING IT AT THE FAMILY READING NIGHT EVENT. AND I LOOK FORWARD TO VISITING ACACIA ON FRIDAY TO DO THE SAME.

CONGRATS TO OUR ACADEMIC DECATHLON CHAMPIONS FROM WESTLAKE HIGH SCHOOL AND THANK YOU TO DENISE FOR OUR ANNUAL REPORT. FROM SEDAC. I LEARNED SO MUCH FROM DENISE AS WELL AS SO MANY OTHERS ON SEDAC ALL THE TIME SO THANK YOU FOR THAT. I ALSO WANTED TO THANK THE K KIDS AND ENCOURAGE SUPPORT OF THE CROP WALK, MY FIRST FULL-TIME NONPROFIT JOB IN MY 20S WAS FOR THE LOS ANGELES REGIONAL FOOD BANK, I WAS THERE GRANT WRITER AND SO I WAS, WE WERE ALL ABOUT FIGHTING HUNGER EVERY DAY. 30 HOURS A WEEK AND SO I USED TO KNOW EVERY SINGLE STAT, AND FACT ON HUNGER IN AMERICA AND I AM GLAD THAT THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE CONTINUING TO FIGHT. AND WORK FOR THIS BASIC NEED. I'M NOT GOING TO SHARE ALL ABOUT THE RELATED EVENTS IN MEETINGS THE PAST COUPLE OF WEEKS. ALTHOUGH I DO WANT TO SHARE A SHOUT OUT TO FIFTH-GRADERS BECAUSE YOU'RE BLACK HISTORY MONTH BIOGRAPHIES WERE AMAZING AND I'M SO GLAD I GOT THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THOSE. WHAT I AM GOING TO DO IS I WANTED TO FOCUS MY COMMENTS AROUND SORT OF A THEME HERE I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WILL SEE IT HOPEFULLY YOU WILL LATER TONIGHT WE WILL HEAR ABOUT AN EVENT THAT REPRESENTS A COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP AND WE ARE ALSO TALKING ABOUT THE EL CAP FOR NEXT YEAR SO I WANTED TO FOCUS MY COMMENTS SORT OF AROUND EVENTS THAT I HAVE BEEN TO THAT SHOWCASED THESE TYPES OF COLLABORATIVES OR COLLECTIVE EFFORTS. SO FIRST UP WAS THE RISE UP AT THE RAMS EVENT AT SYCAMORE CANYON A COUPLE WEEKS AGO IT WAS A HALF-DAY EVENT, ALL SYCAMORE CANYON EIGHTH-GRADERS ARE DISSIPATED AND THEY MOVED THROUGH THREE ROTATIONS ONE ROTATION WAS LED BY DI EXPERT WHO WORKS WITH PROFESSIONAL ATHLETIC ORGANIZATIONS AND WITH HIM STUDENTS PARTICIPATED IN DISCUSSION ACTIVITIES AROUND THE CONCEPT OF IDENTITY. NOT JUST OUR OWN IDENTITY IN THE CONCEPT THAT WE ALL CARRY MULTIPLE IDENTITIES WITH US BUT ALSO UNDERSTANDING AND RESPECTING OTHERS IDENTITIES.

IN ANOTHER ROTATION STUDENTS WATCHED A VIDEO ABOUT THE FIRST BLACK AMERICAN FOOTBALL PLAYER WHO PLAYED FOR THE RAMS. AND A PANEL OF RAMS STAFF SHARED THEIR EXPERIENCES AROUND IDENTITY AND DIVERSITY AND OTHER DI RELATED CONCEPTS AND THEN IN THE THIRD ROTATION STUDENTS PARTICIPATED IN HANDS-ON ACTIVITIES AROUND TRUST AND COMMUNITY BUILDING.

WHICH WERE FOOTBALL RELATED AS YOU MIGHT GUESS. SO IN FULL TRANSPARENCY I HAD DROPPED BY THAT EVENT THAT DAY JUST THINKING I WOULD CHECK IT OUT AND LEAVE THAT I STAY LONGER BECAUSE I REALLY WANTED TO SEE THE DIFFERENT ROTATIONS. SO THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO MADE IT HAPPEN, THE PARENTS WHO GOT THE BALL ROLLING AS WELL AS THE ADMINISTRATION AND THE RAMS, IT IS INSPIRING TO SEE ALL THE THINGS THAT CAN HAPPEN WHEN WE ARE WORKING WITH COMMUNITY PARTNERS LIKE THE RAMS ORGANIZATION AND I'M REALLY CURIOUS TO HEAR ABOUT WHAT THE STUDENTS LEARNED AND GAINED THROUGH PARTICIPATION. WE KNOW THERE IS ALWAYS MORE WORK TO DO ON THESE TOPICS, AREAS OF UNDERSTANDING ABOUT OURSELVES. HOW TO INTERACT AND INTERFACE WITH OTHERS. PARTICULARLY THOSE THAT MAY LOOK DIFFERENT THAN WE DO. AND I THINK THIS EVENT WAS POWERFUL AS A MECHANISM FOR THAT ESPECIALLY FOR STUDENTS HEADED OFF FOR HIGH SCHOOL SOON. I ALSO WANTED TO MENTION THE CT ADVISORY DAY LAST WEEK WHICH I AM GUESSING THERE MIGHT BE A COUPLE OTHER PEOPLE SPEAKING ON IT SO I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE WHO ORGANIZED THAT AND PARTICIPATED IT WAS MY FIRST TIME BEING THERE. AND SO I REALLY ENJOYED THE LEARNING AND THE COLLABORATIVE DISCUSSIONS IN THE PLANNING THAT TOOK LACE THAT DAY. I GOT TO SIT WITH THE HEALTH SCIENCE RELATED GROUP.

AND THERE WERE TEACHERS AND STUDENTS THAT REPRESENTED NEWBERRY PARK AND WESTLAKE. AND I GOT TO HEAR ABOUT EVERYTHING GOING ON AT ALL THREE OF THOSE HIGH SCHOOLS AS WELL AS THE STUDENTS PERSONAL EXPERIENCES IN THOSE PROGRAMS. AND ONE OF MY TAKEAWAYS THAT DAY WAS REALLY JUST HOW IMPORTANT IT IS FOR EVERYBODY OUT THERE TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE NEED YOU.

WE KNOW THAT LOCAL BUSINESSES AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS WANT TO SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS AND OUR SCHOOLS AND THEY DON'T ALWAYS KNOW HOW TO DO IT. SO, THERE ARE SO MANY OPPORTUNITIES AND I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING THESE TYPES OF CONNECTIONS AND PARTNERSHIPS CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AND GROW AS WE LOOK FORWARD BECAUSE IT BENEFITS NOT JUST OUR STUDENTS AND OUR SCHOOLS BUT OUR BUSINESSES AND OUR ORGANIZATIONS OUT THERE AS WELL AND ULTIMATELY OUR ENTIRE COMMUNITY SO THAT IS IT FOR ME.

[00:40:02]

THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU. TRUSTEE

SYLVESTER? >> A GOOD EVENING EVERYONE, FIRST I TOO WOULD LIKE TO THANK DENISE BENIC FOR COMING TONIGHT FOR GIVING US SUCH A NICE THOROUGH REPORT ON SEDAC BUT ALSO FOR LEADING THAT GROUP OVER THE PAST YEAR, AS MS. GOLDBERG MENTIONED, IT SEEMS TO BE ON THE FOREFRONT OF OUR PARENT ADVISORY GROUPS SO THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK. I ALSO WANT TO CONGRATULATE THE WESTLAKE HIGH SCHOOL TEAM, WE TALK MORE ABOUT THAT, WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS PROGRAM IS THAT IT IS COMPOSED OF STUDENTS WITH DIFFERENT GPAS, THIS IS NOT JUST THE WESTLAKE HIGH SCHOOL VALEDICTORIAN TO COMPETE, THE COMPETITION MANDATES THAT YOU HAVE A CERTAIN NUMBER OF STUDENTS WHO ARE A, B, C AND NOT JUST GREAT ACADEMICS. THERE IS AN OVERALL THEME, AS WAS MENTIONED, BUT THE COMPETITION ACTUALLY ENCOMPASSES VERY DIFFERENT SUBJECT AREAS WITHIN THAT THEME INCLUDING PUBLIC SPEAKING, INTERVIEWS, ESSAY WRITING, PERFORMING ARTS AS WELL AS SCHOLASTIC EXAMS SO IT'S REALLY MULTISKILLED AND MULTIDISCIPLINED. I WANT TO THANK HIM FOR LEADING THIS GROUP BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN AT LEAST 10 YEARS MY OLDEST SON PARTICIPATED IN THIS AND HE GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL IN 2014. AND HE TO THIS DAY REMEMBERS THAT THE FIRST TOPIC WAS RUSSIA. AND THEN WORLD WAR I WAS THE SECOND THEME SO THANK YOU TO HIM FOR LEADING THIS FOR SO MANY YEARS. IT HAS BEEN A REALLY BUSY TWO WEEKS SINCE OUR LAST MEETING I COUNTED FIVE DIFFERENT ADVISORY COUNCILS THAT HAPPENED AND MET BUT I WILL FOCUS ON SOME OF THE COMMITTEES I SIT ON JUST FOR SOME FEEDBACK. THE BUDGET COMMITTEE MEETING WE HAVE AN ENTIRE ITEM ON OUR AGENDA LATER SO I'M NOT GOING TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME TALKING ABOUT THAT, WE WILL DISCUSS THAT MUCH LATER. LIKE MR. GORBACK I ATTENDED THE WELLNESS COMMITTEE AND I WANT TO OFFER MY APPRECIATION TO VIRGINIA BECK. SHE ATTENDED THIS MEETING AND MOST OF IT WAS MEANT DISCUSSING NUTRITION, WE LEARNED QUITE A BIT ABOUT THE FOOD SELECTION PROCESS, HOW MENUS ARE DEVELOPED, HOW GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS ARE CHOSEN.

HOW THE CENTRAL KITCHEN OPERATES AND THEN WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THEIR SUPPLY CHAIN DISRUPTIONS AND THEN OF COURSE WE TALKED ABOUT FOOD WASTE AND DISPOSAL. AND I HEAR THERE MIGHT BE A FUTURE FIELD TRIP TO THE CENTRAL KITCHEN TO SEE IT IN ACTION. SO I LOOK FORWARD TO THAT. YES, FIELD TRIP. WE CAN ALL COME. WE CAN ALL GO. I ALSO DID ATTEND THE CT ADVISORY DAY LAST WEEK. AND IT WAS ABOUT A HALF-DAY EVENT AT CAL LUTHERAN, FIRST OFF I NEED TO GIVE JUST TREMENDOUS APPRECIATION AND THANKS TO OUR THREE HIGH SCHOOL CTE COORDINATORS. ASHLEY COOPER, NICK GARIN AT NEWBERRY PARK HIGH SCHOOL AND DOCTOR LORI LOOKER, FOR CREATING SUCH A DYNAMIC EVENT. I ATTENDED TWO OR THREE YEARS AGO ON ZOOM AND THIS YEAR IT BLEW IT AWAY. MANY COMMUNITY PARTNERS, SEVERAL TRUSTEES, DISTRICT STAFF, PARENTS, EVEN A PRIOR STUDENT BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, THE CTE CURRENT CTE STUDENTS WHO ATTENDED SEVERAL OF THEM CAME UP AND PRESENTED ON THEIR SPECIFIC EXPERIENCES AND THIS WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE DAY FOR ME, THIS IS THE WHY BEHIND THIS PROGRAM AND WHY THESE PROGRAMS ARE SO ABSOLUTELY IMPORTANT. LISTENING TO THE STUDENTS WHO WERE JUST SO PASSIONATE ABOUT THEIR CHOSEN FIELD AND THEIR SPECIFIC CTE CLASSES AND JUST INCREDIBLY ARTICULATE ABOUT HOW THIS HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE WILL IMPACT THEIR FUTURE CAREER PLANS. IT WAS ALSO REALLY INSPIRING ALL OF THEM GAVE SHOUT OUTS AND APPRECIATION TO THEIR CTE TEACHERS WHO WERE IN THE ROOM. AFTER ONE STUDENT PRESENTED HIS EXPERIENCE WITH GAME DESIGN, THIS WAS AN UNBELIEVABLE EVENT, ONE OF THE COMMUNITY PARTNERS RAISED HIS HAND AND ON THE SPOT OFFERED HIM A SUMMER INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY. AND THIS IS WHAT THIS DAY WAS ABOUT, AND QUITE FRANKLY WHAT THE PROGRAM IS AND SHOULD BE ABOUT, CONNECTING MORE STUDENTS WITH A BROADER BUSINESS COMMUNITY HERE IN THE CONEJO. AND FINALLY, READING, READING AND MORE READING. LAST WEEK AND THIS WEEK I HAVE HAD SEVERAL OPPORTUNITIES TO READ TO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN. I SAID YES I THINK TO EVERY INVITE I RECEIVED TO BE PART OF READING ACROSS AMERICA. AT LING RANCH, THE PLEASURE OF READING BOTH TO A TK CLASS FOLLOWED BY A FIFTH GRADE CLASS, TALK ABOUT DIFFERENCES.

THE TK STUDENTS WERE SO ABSOLUTELY EXCITED AND WHEN I WALKED IN THEY WERE MILLING AROUND THE ROOM AND THE TEACHER SAID CARPET AND WITHIN LIKE 10 SECONDS THEY ALL SAT THERE, IT WAS AMAZING. AND THEN AFTER I READ THE BOOK AND THE TOPIC WAS

[00:45:02]

GREEN EGGS AND HAM , THE CULINARY CLASSIC EVERY SINGLE KID RAISED THEIR HAND AND HAD A STORY TO SHARE HER QUESTION TO ASK ME. THE FIFTH GRADERS A LITTLE BIT MORE RESERVED. BUT SEEMINGLY EQUALLY INTERESTED IN HEARING OH THE PLACES YOU'LL GO SO I WANT TO THANK MS. ZITO AND MISS ACKMAN FOR SHARING YOUR CLASSES WITH ME AND THINK MISS BRAD SHORR WHO ORGANIZED THIS EVENT AT LING RANCH. THEN IT WAS MENTIONED IT WAS ON TO ASPEN ELEMENTARY, WHERE I GOT TO OBSERVE AND WATCH PROFESSIONAL READERS ACTUALLY READ. THIS INCLUDED THE RAMS MASCOT, A YOUNG AUTHOR AND A PROFESSIONAL VOICE ACTOR WHO SHOWED ME REALLY HOW THIS READING SHOULD BE DONE. AND HE COMPLETELY STOLE THE SHOW. SO THANK YOU TO ALLISON FRIEDMAN FOR EMCEEING THE EVENT AND REACHING OUT AND INVITING ALL THE TRUSTEES. TO THIS EVENING. FINALLY LAST NIGHT I PARTICIPATED IN FAMILY READING NIGHT AT CONEJO ACADEMY, ALSO A GREAT EVENT, I'VE GOT TO READ A BOOK IN ENGLISH TO A SMALL GROUP THAN MY READING PARTNER ESTHER MARCO GARCIA WHO IS A SECOND GRADE TEACHER AT CONEJO ACADEMY READ A DIFFERENT BOOK IN SPANISH. I WOULD SAY ALL THE KIDS AND PARENTS WERE ENGAGED IN BOTH BOOKS. IT WAS REALLY NICE TO SEE MISS BOWMAN AND HER DAUGHTER IN THE AUDIENCE, SO THANKS AGAIN TO NATALIE SMITH FOR ORGANIZING THIS EVENT, AND FOR INVITING ME INTO ALL OF THE STAFF AT CONEJO ACADEMY. ONWARD TO ACACIA ELEMENTARY ON FRIDAY. THANK YOU.

>> I LOOK FORWARD TO JOINING ALL OF YOU AT ACACIA ELEMENTARY ON FRIDAY. BECAUSE IT IS READ ACROSS AMERICA AND THERE IS NOTHING BETTER AND MORE IMPORTANT THAN READING.

IT IS YOUR WINDOW TO EVERYTHING. I AM GLAD TRUSTEE SYLVESTER THAT YOU MENTIONED THE MAGIC MOMENT THAT HAPPENED AT THE CTE ADVISORY COMMITTEE. I HAVE SAT ON THE COMMITTEE FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS. MORE THAN I CARE TO COUNT. AND EVERY YEAR IT GETS BETTER. AND BETTER AND BIGGER AND BIGGER. AND I HAVE WAITED FOR A MOMENT LIKE THAT FOR THE ENTIRE TIME, SO THANK YOU. TO MRS. COOPER, MR. GARIN AND OTHERS FOR PUTTING ALL THE PEOPLE IN THE ROOM SO THAT THE MAGIC CAN HAPPEN BECAUSE TO UNDERSCORE WHAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT, ONE OF US WAS TALKING ABOUT A LITTLE EARLIER, THAT PARTNERSHIP PIECE IS WHAT IS BEST FOR OUR STUDENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES LIKE THAT DO NOT COME ALONG EVERY DAY, SO THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. I REALLY JUST WANT TO TALK ABOUT ONE THING THAT I DID THAT WAS DIFFERENT THAN ALL THE OTHER THINGS THAT WE'VE HEARD. THIS EVENING AND THAT WAS I HAD THE HONOR OF ATTENDING AND INTRAMURAL DODGEBALL GAME. AT THOUSAND OAKS HIGH SCHOOL.

WHEN I WENT ON A FIELD TRIP AT THE LATINO CONNECTION CLUB WITH THOUSAND OAKS HIGH SCHOOL, ONE OF THE STUDENTS JOSÉ HERNANDEZ CAME UP TO ME AND TOLD ME ABOUT THIS CLUB, VERY EXCITEDLY AND INVITED ME TO COME SO I PUT IT ON MY CALENDAR, AND I JUST WANT TO HIGHLIGHT WHAT THIS STUDENT INITIATED STUDENT LED STUDENT DRIVEN EXCITEMENT OF COMMUNITY, CAMPUS CULTURE IS.

I CAN'T UNDERSCORE THE VALUE OF HAVING STUDENT GROUPS WHO DON'T USUALLY MAKES OR TALK ALL IN ONE PLACE COMPETING AND LAUGHING AND HAVING A GOOD TIME. ONE OF YOU SAID JOY AND ENERGY IN A PACKED GYMNASIUM WELL WE HAD JOY AND ENERGY IN A PACKED GYMNASIUM FOR A DIFFERENT EVENT THAT WAS AMAZING. AND I WANT TO GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO JOSÉ LUIS FLOREZ, JOSÉ HERNANDEZ, DIEGO ESTRADA AND ALAN COFER LEADING THIS GROUP BECAUSE, THESE KIDS HAVE GOT SPONSORS, THEY'VE GOT IT ALL ORGANIZED, I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THE REST OF THESE INTRAMURALS AND I WANT TO REALLY THANK THE ADMINISTRATION AT THOUSAND OAKS HIGH SCHOOL FOR SUPPORTING THIS THING THAT COULD HAVE BEEN SOMETHING THAT THEY NIXED BECAUSE IT STARTED OFF BY KIDS PLAYING SOCCER WHERE THEY WERE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE PLAYING. AND IT HAS MORPHED AND THANK YOU TO THOSE OF YOU WHO SUPPORTED THAT. BECAUSE IT REALLY MAKES A DIFFERENCE AND THE EMPOWERMENT OF THESE STUDENTS, I AM LOOKING SO FORWARD TO SEEING WHAT THEY DO NEXT. SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND I WILL TURN IT OVER TO DOCTOR MCLAUGHLIN.

[A. Business Services - 2023-2024 Second Interim Financial Statements]

>> NO COMMENTS THIS EVENING. >> WE ARE NOW AT SECTION 2

[00:50:01]

ACTION ITEMS, GENERAL WE ARE AT ITEM 2A BUSINESS SERVICES.

SECOND INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, DO I HAVE A MOTION?

>> TRUSTEE GOLDBERG. >> TRUSTEE SYLVESTER?

>> I MOVE THAT WE ACCEPT THE 2023-2024 SECOND INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AS SUBMITTED.

>> SECOND. >> MOVED AND SECONDED. I SEE THE SCREEN DOWN AND YOU ARE ON.

>> TONIGHT WILL PRESENT OUR SECOND INTERIM FINANCIAL REPORTS. AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE BUBBLES HERE, WE ARE AT THE BLUE ARROW. WE ARE JUST COMING OFF OF JANUARY'S THE GOVERNORS PROPOSED BUDGET THAT HE RELEASED IN MID-JANUARY FOR THE 24 OR 25 SCHOOL YEAR IF YOU COULD BELIEVE THAT. AND THEN WE ARE RIGHT IN BETWEEN WHAT IS FOLLOWING IS OUR WORKING ON OUR NEXT YEARS BUDGET AND THEN EVENTUALLY THAT MAIN REVISE, EACH INTERIM REPORTING PERIOD THE FIRST AND SECOND WE HAVE TO CERTIFY TO THE COUNTY THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION THAT WE WILL HAVE A POSITIVE QUALIFIED OR NEGATIVE CERTIFICATION, WE HAVE ALWAYS CERTIFIED IN A POSITIVE MANNER, WHICH MEANS THAT WE WILL MEET OUR FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS FOR THE CURRENT AND THE TWO SUBSEQUENT YEARS. THERE'S A LOT OF NEWS REGARDING THE STATE BUDGET AND FUNDING FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS FOR NEXT YEAR. I JUST PUT THIS INFORMATION DOWN AND PUT THE SOURCES DOWN TO WHERE IT COMES FROM ON THE BOTTOM LEFT ON EACH SLIDE AND THE HIGHLIGHTED PIECES ARE REALLY THE PAINTED PICTURE OF WHAT THE SCENARIO LOOKS LIKE THERE HAS BEEN A DOWNTURN IN 22 AND 23. THE STATE GENERAL FUND HAS HAD REVENUE LOSS AND LOOKING AT A $14 BILLION DIFFERENCE IN REVENUE PROJECTIONS OVER BUDGETED. AND MULTIYEAR OPERATING DEFICITS ARE STILL PROJECTED OVER THE NEXT COMING YEARS AND THIS IS FOR THE STATE BUDGET. PROPOSED FOR SCHOOL FUNDING FOR 24 AND 25 IS A COST-OF-LIVING ADJUSTMENT OF .76%. AT A LIKELY LEADING TO A LOT OF ELIEZER AS LOCAL EDUCATION AGENCIES RECOGNIZING A DECREASE IN LC FF REVENUES. THE GOVERNOR CONTINUES THE TREND OF SPENDING ONE-TIME STATE RESOURCES TO SUPPORT ONGOING EXPENDITURES. AND CASH DEFERRALS SOMETHING THAT WAS TALKED ABOUT PRIOR JUST BEFORE CORONAVIRUS AND WE WENT THROUGH A PERIOD OF DEFERRALS AND A SOLUTION IF IT COMES DOWN TO IT AND SOMETHING THAT COULD POTENTIALLY BE ANNOUNCED AT THE MAY REVISE OR THE FINAL JUNE BUDGET. AGAIN, SOME INFORMATION UPDATED THE DEFICIT AND THIS IS MORE RECENT, REMAINS THE DEFICIT REMAINS A SIGNIFICANT, THERE ARE ATTEMPTS AT MAINTAINING FUNDING FOR ALL EXISTING K-12 PROGRAMS, HOWEVER THE .76 IS THE INSUFFICIENT TO COVER OUR ACTUAL COST INCREASES. SCHOOL DISTRICTS NEED TO CONTROL ONGOING ESCALATIONS, SOME MAY NEED TO CONSIDER MARCH NOTICES THAT MEANS LAYOFFS. AND THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT RISK THAT THE MAY REVISION DATA WILL BE WORSE THAN IT WAS DURING THE JANUARY PROJECTION THAT THE GOVERNOR GAVE ORR BASED HIS PROPOSED BUDGET ON. SO WHERE WE SIT ON NOW AT SECOND INTERIM, ARE LC FF BASE FUNDING WE BROKE OUT SUPPLEMENTAL IN THE BUDGET AND WE HAVE BEEN TALKING A LOT ABOUT SUPPLEMENTAL DOLLARS AND SUPPLEMENTAL ACTIVITIES SO WE BROKE THAT DOWN JUST SO YOU CAN SEE HOW MUCH WE GET BASED ON THE STUDENT POPULATIONS THAT GENERATE THOSE DOLLARS, WE DON'T GET ANY CONCENTRATION DOLLARS IF YOU RECALL. BUT OUT OF THE HUNDRED AND JUST UNDER $200 MILLION TOTAL STATE FUNDING, JUST UNDER 10 MILLION GOES TO SUPPLEMENTAL. COSTS. SERVICES. ON THE EXPENSE SIDE, IT IS SALARIES AND CLASSIFIED AND BENEFITS CONTINUE TO BE UPWARDS OF AROUND 80% OF OUR TOTAL EXPENDITURES TOTAL EXPENSES ARE PROJECTED TO BE ABOUT 287 MILLION WE BROKE OUT RESTRICTED AND UNRESTRICTED DOLLARS UNDER THE RESTRICTED IS WHERE YOU SEE OUR FEDERAL SPECIAL EDUCATION DOLLARS. AND ALSO GRANT DOLLARS AS WELL AS A ONE-TIME STIMULUS FUNDS THAT WE HAVE THAT ARE EXPIRING IN SEPTEMBER 2024. AND WILL BE EXPENDED PROBABLY BY JUNE 30 OF THIS YEAR. WHEN YOU ROLL THAT TOGETHER, WE COME UP WITH OUR PROJECTED ENDING FUND BALANCE AND THIS IS BASED ON THE DATA THAT WE KNOW TODAY, WHERE WE THINK WE WILL END UP ON JUNE 30. WE STARTED THE YEAR WITH JUST ABOUT $55 MILLION. REVENUE IS ABOUT 260 MILLION, OR EXPENSE OR 287 MILLION. WHEN YOU DO THE MATH ON THAT, YOU END UP WITH ABOUT $28 MILLION AND THAT $28 MILLION IS BROKEN

[00:55:04]

DOWN BELOW BETWEEN STORIES REVOLVING CASH, WHICH IS OUR INVENTORY AND FUNDS WE HAVE ON HAND. LOCAL STABILIZATION RESERVE IS GOING BACK TO 2015 AND 16 WHEN WE GOT A LARGE SUM OF ONE-TIME DOLLARS, THE DISTRICT HAD SET ASIDE $3 MILLION FOR FISCAL EMERGENCY. WHERE WE ARE REQUIRED TO KEEP 3% RESERVE IT'S ABOUT A .6 MILLION. SO THAT LEAVES US WITH A NET JUST UNDER 17 MILLION OF UNDESIGNATED FUND BALANCE. AND THAT IS WHAT ADDS UP TO THE $28.7 MILLION THAT WE SAW UP TOP. NOW FROM THE MAY 2021 BOARD OF EDUCATION WORK SESSION OUR GOAL IS TO HAVE APPROXIMATELY 6% OF EXPENSES AND RESERVES AND WE STILL PROJECT TO FINISH THIS YEAR WITH JUST UNDER 7% AS A TOTAL RESERVE AT THE END OF THE YEAR. SO IN ORDER TO CERTIFY A POSITIVE CERTIFICATION TO THIS STATE OR BUDGET WHERE WE ARE REQUIRED TO DO THAT MULTIYEAR PROJECTION THE MULTI-YEAR MEANS THE REMAINDER OF THIS YEAR PLUS THE NEXT TWO YEARS. SO WE HAVE TO USE SOME FACTORS AND ASSUMPTIONS IN ORDER TO COME UP WITH OUR THIRD YEAR OUT PROJECTION THESE ARE THE ASSUMPTIONS THAT WE USE, OUR CURRENT : THIS YEAR'S 8.22%, NEXT YEAR IS .776% AND 25 26 PROJECTED TO BE 2.73%. OUR ENROLLMENT PROJECTION WE ARE CURRENTLY AROUND JUST UNDER 16,000. AND YOU WILL SEE THE CHANGES IN 24 AND 25 AND 25 AND 26 TWO BE UP 15 JUST UNDER 15 FIVE. ARE FUNDED AVA IS WHAT WE GET PAID ONLINE THROUGH OUR LC FF WE PUT A LINE THERE AND THIS TIME JUST TO SEE SEE YOU CAN SEE THE FUNDED DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ACTUAL ADA IN THE FUNDED ADA AND THAT IS BECAUSE JUST BEFORE THE STATE SWITCHED TO AN ADA REPORTING AND FUNDING CYCLE OF USING A THREE-YEAR ROLLING AVERAGE. SO THAT BENEFITS SCHOOL DISTRICTS THAT HAVE A DECLINE IN ENROLLMENT BECAUSE YOU ARE ALWAYS CAPITALIZING ON THOSE LARGEST YEARS ON AN AVERAGE BASIS. BUT YOU SEE THE WINDOW CLOSES AS THE YEARS GO ON AND AS ENROLLMENT AND FUNDED AND ACTUAL ADA CLOSE. OUR UNDUPLICATED PUPIL PRESENT REMAINS THE SAME AROUND 27%.

JUST OVER 4400 STUDENTS. THE PENSION RATES YOU CAN SEE 20% AND 26.6% OF EVERY DOLLAR WE SPEND GOES INTO THE PENSION SYSTEM. SALARY NEGOTIATIONS EARLY IN THE YEAR WERE SETTLED THIS YEAR AND ANOTHER APPROVAL ON IT FOR THIS MEETING FOR THE LAST BARGAINING UNIT. WE ALWAYS ANTICIPATE ABOUT 30 RETIREES AND OUR STAFFING RATIOS REMAIN THE SAME. NOW IN ORDER TO GIVE A POSITIVE CERTIFICATION IN YEAR THREE WE ARE LOOKING AT A POTENTIAL USE OF RESERVES, FUND TRANSFERS, OR POTENTIAL BUDGET REDUCTIONS IN YEAR TWO AND YEAR THREE OF 3 MILLION AND $6 MILLION RESPECTIVELY. AND THAT IS HOW WE CAN END UP WITH A POSITIVE CERTIFICATION. SO WHEN YOU PUT ALL THE NUMBERS TOGETHER ESSENTIALLY THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE. AS NOTED EARLIER, THE PROJECT A YEAR AROUND JUST UNDER $29 MILLION. NEXT YEAR WILL BE JUST UNDER 19 AND YEAR THREE WILL BE JUST UNDER OR JUST OVER 8 1/2 MILLION DOLLARS. AND YOU SEE THE BREAKDOWN OF EACH OF THOSE BELOW, IN YEAR 25 AND 26 WE WILL NEED THAT FISCAL STABILIZATION RESERVE OF $3 MILLION IN ORDER TO REMAIN POSITIVE AS WELL AS WHETHER IT BE CUTS OF THREE AND $6 MILLION, RESPECTIVELY IN THE NEXT TWO YEARS OR UTILIZING OUR RESERVE FUNDS FROM OUR HEALTH AND WELFARE BENEFIT FUND THAT WE HAVE ACCUMULATED SOME RESERVES IN THERE THAT WE CAN USE AND TRANSFER TO HELP OUR BUDGET GAP. BUT KEEP IN MIND THAT THOSE ARE ONE-TIME EXPENSES. OTHER FUNDS WE MAINTAIN , THESE ARE JUST NORMAL COURSE OF BUSINESS UPDATED FINANCIALS, WHAT I JUST WANT TO POINT OUT HERE IS A BUILDING FUND MEASURE I, WE DID JUST FINISH OUR LAST BOND SALE AND WE DID GET A LARGE DEPOSIT IN OF $30 MILLION. AND THAT IS REFLECTED THERE IN THE INCOME. AND THAT IS OUR FINAL BOND ISSUE WITH MEASURE I SLATED TO BE COMPLETED BY THE FALL OR WINTER 2025. SO WHAT IS NEXT? WE ARE WORKING ON NEXT YEAR'S BUDGET. WE ARE

[01:00:04]

WORKING ON OUR FINANCIALS AND OUR ESTIMATES FOR NEXT YEAR, BUT WE ARE STILL KIND OF WAITING TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS THAT THE GOVERNORS MAY REVISE TO SEE IF ANYTHING CHANGES REGARDING THE STATE'S FISCAL CONDITION AND WHAT THAT MEANS FOR K-12 FUNDING AND WE WILL HAVE TO MAKE THE APPROPRIATE ADJUSTMENTS AND COME BACK IN JUNE WITH AN ADOPTED BUDGET TO THE BOARD. THE MOST RECENT NEWS THAT WE'VE GOT IN PROBABLY A WEEK OR SO AGO, THE ALLEGED SLATE ISSUED TWO SEPARATE REPORTS BACK IN FEBRUARY ON PROP 98 THAT THE STATE BUDGET AND PROP 98 DEFICITS ARE LIKELY TO GROW IN MAY SO THE SCENARIO THAT WAS PAINTED IN JANUARY'S IS LIKELY TO BE WORSE IN MAY, AND THE PROP 98 MINIMUM GUARANTEE COULD DROP BY ANOTHER 7.7 MILLION FROM THE GOVERNOR'S BUDGET ESTIMATES.

THEY DID IDENTIFY SOME ALTERNATIVES FOR THE LEGISLATURE TO CONSIDER. INCLUDING PROVIDING NO COLA FOR 24/25. REJECTING ALL THE NEW SPENDING PROPOSALS THE GOVERNOR PUT FORTH REDUCING SPENDING ON EXISTING PROGRAMS THROUGH MAKING SOME POLICY ADJUSTMENTS. AND/OR SWEEPING SOME UNALLOCATED EDUCATION FUNDS. NONE OF THEM ARE GOOD. SO, I DON'T HAVE A WOO HOO HERE SO I JUST END ON A BLACK SCREEN. BUT IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS I AM HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS OR GIVE ANY CLARIFICATION TO THE INFORMATION THAT WAS

PRESENTED. >> THE BLACK SCREEN DID NOT GO UNNOTICED. ANY QUESTIONS FOR DOCTOR HAYEK, TRUSTEE GIL?

>> THE 3% MANDATED RESERVE OF IT HAS TO BE TAPPED IN OUT YEARS, WHAT DOES IT, WHAT HAPPENS? IT'S A MANDATE TO HAVE IT, IF WE HAVE TO TAP IT THEN WHAT?

>> SO I WILL GO BACK TO THIS SLIDE. SO THAT MEANS IF WE DON'T HAVE A 3%, WE WILL BE QUALIFIED. SO FOR USING THAT 3%, AND WE ARE STILL POSITIVE, USING THAT 3% WE WILL BE QUALIFIED IF WE ARE USING THE 3% RESERVE AND WE ARE STILL NEGATIVE THEN WE WILL HAVE A NEGATIVE CERTIFICATION.

>> THANK YOU. >> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

>> JUST SO I UNDERSTAND THERE IS A $3 MILLION FISCAL, THIS

IS THE STABILIZATION RESERVE? >> YES.

>> THAT YOU DISCUSSED EARLIER AND YOU ARE SHOWING THE PLAN FOR THAT WOULD BE TO USE IT IN 25-26 BUT YOU'RE ALSO SHOWING $3 MILLION SOMEHOW COMING FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE AND 24 AND 25 CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THAT?

>> SURE, IF YOU LOOK AT THESE, THESE ARE THE OTHER FUNDS AND THEY ARE A LITTLE SMALL, I APOLOGIZE. THE SELF-INSURANCE FUND SO WE ARE SELF-INSURED FOR HEALTH BENEFITS AND WE ARE SELF-INSURED FOR WORKER COMP INSURANCE. BENEFITS, THE WORK COMP SIDE, OUR FUND WE DON'T PLAN ON TAKING ANY FUNDS FROM THERE. WE'VE HAD SOME POSITIVE PERFORMANCE AND WORK COMPOSITION BUT IT HAS NOT BUILD UP A RESERVE WHERE WE COULD TAP. HEALTH AND WELFARE FUNDS WHICH ARE MEDICAL BENEFITS BECAUSE WE ARE SELF-INSURED IT GIVES US THE OPPORTUNITY TO CAPITALIZE ON YEARS WHERE WE HAVE FEWER CLAIMS THEN ESSENTIALLY PREMIUMS PAID WHEN COLLECTED INTO THE FUND. SO WHEN WE HAVE BAD YEARS WE END UP HAVING TO TRANSFER FROM GENERAL FUNDS SO BECAUSE WE HAD A NUMBER OF GOOD YEARS, WE HAVE A PROJECTED YOU CAN SEE ABOUT WE PROJECTED IT TO BE ABOUT $18 MILLION OF TOTAL RESERVE. SO. 17.98, SO OUR PLAN IS TO TRANSFER $3 MILLION NEXT YEAR IF WE HAD TO. AND THEN $6 MILLION THE YEAR AFTER THAT. SO THAT WOULD, IF WE CONTINUE TO SEE POSITIVE PERFORMANCE AND HEALTH AND WELFARE FUND ESSENTIALLY THAT WOULD BRING THE FUND BALANCE

DOWN TO AROUND $7 MILLION. >> SO THE 6 MILLION WOULD BE THAT IN ADDITION TO THE FISCAL STABILIZATION SO YOU SAID THAT IS YOUR ONLY OUT? AND I KNOW IN A LITTLE WAY, IT IS SEMANTICS BUT TAKING THE MONEY FROM THERE VERSUS THE UNDESIGNATED RESERVES BECAUSE WE ARE TRYING TO KEEP THAT AT THE WELL, TRYING TO KEEP IT AT ABOVE 6%, CORRECT?

>> IT WOULD STILL, WE WOULD STILL EAT ALL OF THE RESERVES WITH THOSE TRANSFERS. UNLESS WE MAKE SOME BUDGET ADJUSTMENTS NEXT YEAR AND THE YEAR AFTER. AND THE REASON WE DID IT THIS WAY IS IF WE WANT TO LOOK AT IT IN TERMS OF ANY POTENTIAL LET'S JUST SAY CUTS FOR LACK OF A BETTER TERM, OR BUDGET ADJUSTMENTS, IT'S BETTER TO DO IT OVER A PERIOD OF MULTIPLE

[01:05:03]

YEARS THEN HAVE ONE BIG DEVASTATING NUMBER TO TRY TO WORK TOWARD. THE THING TO KEEP IN MIND I THINK WE HAD THIS DISCUSSION IN THE PAST IS WE TRY TO TELL YOU TODAY WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN IN TWO YEARS IS VERY DIFFICULT AND THOSE NUMBERS CHANGE CONSTANTLY AND SOMETIMES THEY GET BETTER AND SOMETIMES THEY GET WORSE. SO WE USE THESE PROJECTIONS TO SAY ALL RIGHT WE COULD MAKE IT IN YEAR THREE WE WOULD HAVE TO USE OUR RESERVES THAT WE ARE NOT IN THE POSITION WHERE OUR BACKS ARE AGAINST THE WALL AND WE HAVE TO CUT SOMETHING TODAY OR ADJUST OUR BUDGET TODAY BECAUSE THINGS COULD TURN IN A POSITIVE DIRECTION AND THEN HERE WE ARE WE HAVE MADE $6 MILLION IN CUTS AND WE DIDN'T HAVE TO. SO YOU KNOW WE WILL LOOK AT THIS ON THE YEAR-TO-YEAR BASIS WE WILL USE THE INFORMATION THAT WE HAVE WE ARE FORTUNATE TO HAVE THOSE RESERVES IN OUR HEALTH AND WELFARE FUND TO BE ABLE TO USE AND PLUG OUR BUDGET BUT WE DO ALSO RECOGNIZE IT IS A USE OF ONE TIME MONIES AND ONCE THOSE ARE GONE THEY ARE GONE. BUT, THAT'S JUST THE POSITION WE ARE IN TODAY AND THAT IS THE ONLY PICTURE I COULD KIND OF PAINT MOVING FORWARD.

>> I DO UNDERSTAND THE TWO YEARS OUT IS A LOT OF SPECULATION IS PROBABLY NOT ACCURATE BUT THINGS DO CHANGE, IT IS A LITTLE CONCERNING LOOKING AT NEXT YEAR'S NUMBERS. THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR WHERE THAT SINCE I'VE BEEN ON THE BOARD WHERE NEXT YEAR IS LOOKING A LITTLE DODGY BUT AGAIN, WE DO HAVE MONEY FROM SOME OF THESE OTHER FUNDS TO COVER IT, JUST SOMETHING YOU MENTIONED COULD YOU JUST EXPLAIN A BIT HOW CASH DEFERRALS WORK? AND IF WHAT THAT IS AND THEN WHAT THE IMPACT COULD BE FOR US?

>> SURE. JUST BEFORE THAT I JUST WANTED TO TOUCH ON EVEN NEXT YEAR, BUT WE ARE LOOKING AT THERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF A TRANSITION HAPPENING TO BECAUSE WE ARE COMING OUT OF YOU KNOW 40+ MILLION DOLLARS OF ONE-TIME STIMULUS MONIES AND WE CREATED A LOT OF THINGS AND ADDITIONAL STAFF AND EVERYTHING SO THERE'S AN ADJUSTMENT PERIOD SO THE NUMBERS WILL LOOK A LOT LOWER NEXT YEAR BECAUSE THOSE ONE-TIME DOLLARS ARE GONE AS WELL. SO I JUST DON'T WANT THERE TO BE ANY MISUNDERSTANDIN G FROM THE PUBLIC AS IT WILL GO LIKE THAT BECAUSE OF THE ONE-TIME FUNDS. AND THE WAY THAT WE ARE FUNDED. AND WITH THOSE ONE-TIME DOLLARS THAT GO AWAY. AND I ALSO WILL SAY THAT WE HAVE BEEN OUR BUDGET AND OUR ACTUALS ARE VERY DIFFERENT BECAUSE WE PUT OUT A BUDGET AND WE DO ESTIMATES BUT WE BECOME PRETTY ADEPT AT MANAGING OUR MONEY OVER THE COURSE OF THE YEAR. IN THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS THINK FIVE YEARS WE ENDED THE YEAR POSITIVE IN THE BLACK OR, CLOSE TO IT. SO, YOU KNOW WE DO GO OUT AND OUR BUDGET IS PRESENTED AS A DEFICIT BUT THROUGH SOME COST SAVINGS AND VACANCIES, BREAKAGE FROM PEOPLE RETIRING AND LEAVING LOWER AND HIGHER SALARIES AND A NUMBER OF OTHER THINGS THAT CHANGE THROUGHOUT THE COURSE OF A BUDGET YEAR WE DO END YEAR IN A POSITIVE WAY. SO, THAT'S WHY I WOULD JUST STOP SHORT OF THROWING ANY PANIC SIGNS RIGHT NOW. NOT THAT YOU DID. BUT I JUST DON'T WANT ANY.

>> I DO APPRECIATE THE CONSERVATIVE APPROACH, I DO AND I HAVE SEEN THAT PLAY OUT. SO I KEPT THAT.

>> BEFORE YOU MOVE ON TO THE TRUSTEE SYLVESTER'S QUESTION CAN YOU EXPLAIN A LITTLE BIT TO THE PUBLIC AND TO THE BOARD ON WE'VE RECEIVED ALL THESE ONE-TIME DOLLARS OVER THE COURSE OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS. WHY DID WE NOT JUST TAKE THAT MONEY AND PUT IT INTO OUR RESERVES TO HAVE A HIGHER FUND BALANCE AT THE END OF EACH YEAR SO IF WE GET TO THIS YEAR, TWO YEAR OR THREE, WE WOULD SEE LESS OF A DEFICIT BECAUSE, COULD YOU TALK ABOUT THE EXPECTATIONS OF THE DOLLARS AND WHAT THE STATES THOUGHTS ARE ON SPENDING ANNUALLY FROM A

SCHOOL DISTRICT SIDE? >> FROM THOSE ONE-TIME DOLLARS? LARGER RESERVE THAN WHAT WE WOULD, THEN WE SHOULD.

>> SO, WITH THE ONE-TIME DOLLARS, EVERY DOLLAR WE HAVE TO ACCOUNT FOR AND IT WAS RESTRICTED TO, IT HAD TO BE SPENT IN A PARTICULAR WAY SO THERE IS A WHOLE LIST OF CATEGORIES OF THINGS THAT WE COULD DO MAINLY FOR COMING OUT OF THE PANDEMIC AND SAVE CONSTRUCTION AND ADDITIONAL EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT FOR KIDS SO EVERY DOLLAR WE HAVE BEEN

[01:10:01]

REPORTING QUARTERLY NOW FOR GOING ON THREE OR FOUR YEARS.

AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO THAT UNTIL THE FUNDS ARE EXHAUSTED SO WE JUST COULD NOT TAKE THAT MONEY THAT WE GOT AND SAY HEY WE ARE JUST GOING TO SET IT ASIDE FOR NOW. SO WE HAD TO SPEND IT AND ALL WITHIN CERTAIN TIMELINES AS WELL, WE COULDN'T SIT ON IT AS WELL. SO, THAT IS WHY WE COULDN'T DO THAT, THERE WERE SOME COUPLE SMALLER GRANTS, THERE IS A LEARNING RECOVERY BLOCK GRANT. THAT WE GOT. THAT WE HAD SOME FLEXIBILITY WITH, BUT NOT AS MUCH. WE COULD NOT USE THAT IN OUR RESERVES AND WE ALSO GOT THE ART, MUSIC, INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIAL, BLOCK GRANT WHICH WAS DISCRETIONARY AND WE COULD'VE TAKEN THOSE FUNDS BUT WE DIDN'T, WE USED A PORTION FOR SOME OF THE ARTS PROGRAMS THAT WE HAD BUT NOW WE ARE SEEING A FEW MINUTES, HOW PROUD 28 HAS HELPED US WITH THAT. SO WE ARE GOING TO SHIP SOME OF THOSE DOLLARS BACK INTO OUR RESERVES THAT WILL HELP US IN THE FUTURE YEARS. AND WE SET ASIDE A PORTION OF THOSE MONIES FOR SOME PENSION COST INCREASES AS WELL. SO WHAT, IS THAT ANSWER GOOD?

>> I THINK THERE IS EDUCATION CODES THAT SCHOOL DISTRICTS CANNOT CARRY OVER OR HAVE A LARGE RESERVE, IS THAT MY

UNDERSTANDING AS WELL? >> YES DEPENDING ON THE STATE, TACTICAL OF COLLECTIONS AND WHAT THAT GUARANTEES, THERE IS A GAP OF 10% SO SCHOOL DISTRICTS CAN'T KEEP MORE THAN 10% OF RESERVES IN TOTAL ON OUR BOOKS.

>> AND JUST TO NOTE THE BOARD I ONLY BRING THOSE QUESTIONS UP AND HAVE DOCTOR HIATT SHARE FOR THE SIMPLE FACT THAT IF YOU LOOK AT A GOVERNMENTAL AGENCY FROM THE EDUCATION SIDE, VERSE MAY BE THE CITYSIDE OR PARKS AND RECREATION SIDE, YOU KNOW THEY HAVE MORE FLEXIBILITY AND CARRYING OVER AND GETTING A LARGER RESERVE WHERE AS US AS A DISTRICT ARE MUCH MORE RESTRICT DID AND TRYING TO BUILD THAT RESERVE AND THE EXPECTATION IS THAT DOLLARS COME IN FOR THE YEAR AND THEY ARE SPENT THAT YEAR ON OF THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS AND STAFFING AND THINGS LIKE THAT WITHIN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT.

>> SO THEN ON TO THE QUESTION ABOUT DEFERRALS, SO THE WAY THAT THEY WORK IS BASICALLY THE STATES AS WE ARE GOING TO GIVE YOU THE MONEY WE ARE JUST NOT GIVING YOU THE CASH. SO, THEY TELL US THAT WE ARE GOING TO GET $50 MILLION, BUT WE ARE NOT GOING TO ACTUALLY GIVE YOU THE MONEY BUT YOU COULD PUT IT ON YOUR BOOKS THAT YOU ARE GETTING THAT CASH. SO, IT IS JUST, WE WILL TELL YOU NOW BUT PAY YOU LATER TYPE OF THING. THAT CREATES AN ISSUE FOR NOT ONLY US, ALL DUE TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS ARE THE CASH FLOW. EVEN IF A $10 MILLION DEFERRAL IS YOU KNOW OUR MONTHLY PAYROLL IS $12 MILLION. SO IT DOES NOT EVEN COVER ONE MONTH'S PAYROLL SO WE WOULD HAVE ISSUE AND WE WOULD HAVE TO BORROW MONEY AND THEN PAY INTEREST ON BORROWING THAT MONEY IN ORDER TO BRIDGE THAT GAP. AND WE WORKED A LONG TIME I MEAN I HAVE BEEN HERE IT WILL BE I THINK EIGHT YEARS IN AUGUST AND WE HAVE HAD A TRANS LOAN EVERY YEAR EXCEPT THE LAST TWO YEARS SO WE HAVEN'T HAD TO BORROW MONEY FOR CASH FLOW PURPOSES AND HAVING TO GO THROUGH THAT AGAIN I MEAN COULD POTENTIALLY BE AN INTEREST RATE , THEY ARE CRAZY NOW DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF THE DEFERRAL, IT COULD BE A COUPLE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS IN INTEREST FEES THAT WE ARE PAYING ON THOSE LOANS AND THEN IT ALSO DEPENDS HOW LONG IT IS BY TIME YOU KNOW WE ACTUALLY GET THE CASH. TO FILL IN OUR BUDGET SO IT CREATES SOME CASH FLOW

ISSUES. >> I APPRECIATE THAT. THANK

YOU. >> HENCE THE BLACK SCREEN.

>> THE BLACK SCREEN WAS TO HOLD SO THE SCREEN IS NOT OPEN.

>> SURE, WE WILL GO WITH THAT, ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

>> TRUSTEE POWELL? >> SO, THERE IS SO I UNDERSTAND FOR NEXT YEAR, IN TERMS OF WHAT THE GOVERNOR IS PROPOSING, LIKE ONE OF THE PROPOSALS IS TO FUND THE COLA LIKE IF IT'S AN 8.22% IS THAT WHAT HE IS DOING WITH JUST THE ONE-TIME STATE

FUNDS? >> THEY .22 IS THIS YEAR.

>> RIGHT, OKAY. >> NEXT YEAR IS .76. WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY A NEGATIVE COLA FOR US BECAUSE OF THE

ENROLLMENT. >> CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHAT THE GOVERNOR'S PROPOSAL HAS BEEN TO DO WITH ONE-TIME STATE FUNDS TO TRY TO BRING US UP TO IF WE WERE GETTING TO EIGHT .22 COLA, HE IS HELPING. HE IS TRYING AND ATTEMPTING TO HELP US NOT FEEL THE PAIN AS MUCH NEXT YEAR, RIGHT?

>> BECAUSE THE COLLECTIONS WERE HIGH IN THE LAST FEW YEARS, THEY HAD TO AMASS THE RESERVE FOR PROP 98 SO ESSENTIALLY THEY'RE USING ONE-TIME MONEY TO CONTINUE TO FUND K-12 SCHOOLS. TAKING THE RESERVES DOWN.

>> THAT HELPS US FOR ANOTHER YEAR.

>> IT DOES. IT'S NO DIFFERENT THAN WHAT WE ARE DOING.

[01:15:03]

>> RIGHT. >> SO, I KNOW THERE IS SO MUCH THAT IS UP IN THE AIR AND OBVIOUSLY WE DON'T WANT TO EVER REALLY BE AT THE POINT WHERE WE HAVE WHATEVER WE WERE AT THE 2026 WITH THE BALANCE. SO WE KNOW AT SOME POINT SOME COST-SAVING ACTIONS COME INTO PLAY. LIKE AT WHAT POINT DO WE

START TALKING ABOUT THOSE? >> THERE IS NEVER A TIME THAT IS GOOD TO TALK ABOUT IT. BUT I WILL SAY THAT WE SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT IT NOW. IT SHOULD, THE CONVERSATION SHOULD START. AND IT'S GOT TO BE ON THE TABLE TO MATTER WHAT. NOT ONLY US BUT A LOT OF SCHOOLS IN CALIFORNIA WITH DEFICITS TO SPEND EACH YEAR AND THE REASON IS THE WAY WE ARE FUNDED. AND WE DON'T GET ANY CLARITY, THE STATE WANTS US TO DO A THREE YEAR PROJECTION. BUT THEY JUST, IT'S , IT WILL NEVER BE ACCURATE, THEY DON'T GIVE US ENOUGH INFORMATION AM I AM OF THE OPINION AND IT'S MY OPINION THAT IF YOU WANT TO DO A THREE YEAR PROJECTION THEN YOU SHOULD TELL US WHAT WE ARE GOING TO GET IN REVENUE FOR THREE YEARS. THEN WE CAN PLAN ACCORDINGLY AND THEN WE CAN MAKE BUDGET ADJUSTMENTS BUT TO GO INTO A SCENARIO OF ON ROAD REVENUE. AND THE ONLY THING WE CAN CONTROL IS EXPENSE AND TO HAVE TO MAKE DRASTIC CUTS AND PROGRAMS AND STAFFING. AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN REVENUE CHANGES OR, RESERVES ARE BEING USED TO FILL BUDGET HOLES AND ALL OF A SUDDEN WE TOOK AROUND PROGRAMS FROM OUR KIDS, WE CREATED UNEMPLOYMENT WE LET PEOPLE GO. AND THEN, IT WAS PROJECTED THAT HE COME WRITTEN ON PAPER AND IT NEVER COMES.

SO, IT IS A TOUGH CONVERSATION TO HAVE BECAUSE WE ARE ALWAYS TALKING UNCERTAINTIES. AND THE INFORMATION AND THINGS THAT WE GET WILL BE BUILT ON SENTIMENT AND YOU CAN HAVE WHATEVER SENTIMENT YOU WANT IF YOU THINK THINGS ARE GOING TO BE POSITIVE THEN YOU CAN MAKE A POSITIVE PROJECTION. IF YOU THINK THINGS WILL BE NEGATIVE THEN YOU MAKE A NEGATIVE PROJECTION SO THAT THE KIND OF YO-YO THAT WE PLAY WITH AND WHAT COMPLICATES THIS EVEN MORE IS WE ARE IN 23-24 AND YOU SEE AN EIGHT TO 2% COLA. THAT LCF MONEY THAT WE HAVE THIS YEAR ACCORDING TO THE PROP 98 HOW IT'S WRITTEN, THERE IS A BACKWARD ADJUSTMENT.

SO, IF THE 23 COLLECTIONS DO NOT PAN OUT TO WHAT THEY THOUGHT IT WAS, THEY CAN GO DO A BACKWARD ADJUSTMENT TO PROP 98. NOW THEY HAVEN'T DONE THAT YET BUT WHAT THAT DOES IS IF YOU DON'T TAKE IT AWAY FROM LAST YEAR THEN YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT AWAY FROM NEXT YEAR OR THE YEAR AFTER OR THE YEAR AFTER, THAT'S WITH COMPLICATING AND COMPOUNDING THE DEFICIT ISSUE IS THE BACK YEARS ARE NOT MEETING WHAT WAS PROJECTED AND THEN THE FORWARD-LOOKING YEARS EVEN IF YOU DO A CONSERVATIVE ADJUSTMENT YOU ARE STILL TRYING TO MAKE UP GROUND FROM PRIOR YEARS AND IT'S GOT TO COME FROM SOMEWHERE.

>> THERE IS A TRICK AND SOME OF THE INFORMATION THEY PUT OUT LIKE WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE FUNDING IT ACTUALLY GOES UP.

SO, IT GOES UP BECAUSE ENROLLMENT IS GOING DOWN. AND THE OVERALL DOLLARS EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE GOING DOWN, BUT BECAUSE IT IS STATEWIDE NOT CONEJO VALLEY, STATEWIDE ENROLLMENT GOING DOWN SO WHEN YOU DO THAT DIVISION IT LOOKS LIKE WE INCREASED FUNDING. AND YOU CAN THEORETICALLY SAY WE INCREASED PER ADA FUNDING BUT THE REALITY IS YOU DIDN'T.

>> AND I WILL NOTE THAT WE COULD LOOK AT REDUCTIONS AND BRING REDUCTIONS FORWARD NOW, WE COULD HAVE HELD ANY OPEN POSITIONS THAT WE HAVE, WHAT I THINK OUR EXPERIENCE TOGETHER IS BEEN IS NOT TAKE THE CHICKEN LITTLE APPROACH ON THIS FIRST YEAR WHICH HAS BEEN FROM JANUARY TO MARCH BASED ON EDUCATION CODE AND HAVING TO PROVIDE REDUCTIONS ENFORCED BY MARCH 15 AND WATCHING NUMEROUS DISTRICTS GO THROUGH THAT PHASE AND IT IS UGLY. AND I DON'T KNOW IF WE NEED TO BE THERE.

YET. OR IF WE NEED TO WAIT ONE MORE YEAR AND THAT IS WHY FOR US, OUR PAUSES DO NOT DO THE CHICKEN LITTLE GOING IN THE LITTLE BIT OF TIME THAT WE KNOW FROM JANUARY TO MARCH. BUT WE REALLY NEED TO GET A GRASP OF THINGS BETWEEN MOVING FORWARD FROM YOU KNOW NOW, BASED ON REVISE AND PLANNING OUT BUDGETS THE NEXT 2-3 YEARS. SO SOME DISTRICTS TOOK THE APPROACH TO GO THROUGH REDUCTION IN FORCE NOW I AM WATCHING IT ON

[01:20:02]

TWITTER. AND THROUGH THE LIST SERVES THAT I SEE. AND WE HAVE SCHOOL BOARDS REJECTING THEM, WE HAVE OBVIOUSLY PEOPLE UPSET THAT MAJOR PROGRAMS THAT HAVE BEEN IMPLEMENTED OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST THREE OR FOUR YEARS ARE BEING CUT AND FOR US, I THINK OUR EXPERIENCE HAS BEEN DO NOT MAKE THOSE DRASTIC RECOMMENDATIONS. IN THE THREE MONTHS THAT WE GET THE RELEASED BUDGET TO MARCH. BUT KNOWING THAT HOPEFULLY THINGS WILL GET BETTER. IN THE TWO YEARS OUT AND IF NOT THEN WE WILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH THAT REDUCTION WHICH WILL PARTAKE IN HAVING CONVERSATIONS WITH THE BUDGET COMMITTEE OBVIOUSLY OUR SCHOOL SITE ADMINISTRATION AND RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE BOARD TO MAKE SURE THAT WE GET TO A POSITIVE CERTIFICATION.

>> ONE RANDOM QUESTION WITH THE COLA SO WHERE DOES THAT NUMBER COME FROM? THE 2.75 IN 25-26, IS THAT YOUR BEST GUEST , YOUR

BEST GUESS? >> WE ARE TOLD.

>> SOMEONE IS PICKING IT BUT NOT YOU?

>> THAT'S WHY I GIVE YOU THE FACTORS, THAT'S WHAT IS GIVEN TO US, WE PROJECT OUR ENROLLMENT TO REALLY AND THEIR ADA THAT IS PRETTY MUCH ALL THAT WE DO. AND ALL THE OTHER STUFF COMES FROM WHATEVER THEY TELL US.

>> I JUST WANT TO SAY I APPRECIATE THE CREATIVE THINKING AND CONSERVATIVE APPROACH. I LIKE WATCHING YOUR WHEELS SPIN ABOUT BUDGETS AND PLANNING , YOU HAVEN'T STEERED US WRONG YET. SO, LET'S JUST HOPE THINGS ARE POSITIVE AND THAT YOU KNOW AS A STUDENT OF HISTORY ONE OF MY MAJORS WITH HISTORY AND ANALYZING TRENDS, THE TREND HAS ALWAYS BEEN SO FAR. THAT WE DO NOT GET TO THAT. BUT, I HAVE ALSO BEEN HERE WHEN WE ONLY HAD TO DO THE TRICK ON THE MEASURES. SO, I APPRECIATE IT. DR. MCLAUGHLIN.

>> WE ARE IN YEAR 11. IF YOU GO BACK TO THE GREATER RECESSION THROUGH 2011, 12 SCHOOL YEAR. THOSE YEARS ARE TOUGH. AND TO SAY THAT THE STATE TO HAVE YOU KNOW 11 OR 12 GRADE RUN, HOW THEY FUND SCHOOLS, CERTAINLY WE WILL RUN INTO A TOUGH SPOT.

RIGHT NOW I THINK THEY ARE PROJECTING FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS, BUT THAT COULD CHANGE AS THINGS CHANGE WITH THE COLLECTIONS COMING IN AND ALL THE OTHER FACTORS THAT COME IN

BETWEEN NOW AND JUNE. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> MAY I ASK A QUESTION? I HOPE THIS DOES NOT SOUND TOO RANDOM BUT AS WE ARE THINKING ABOUT COSTS, WHAT THINGS COST, ONE OF THE QUESTIONS THAT HAS COME UP FOR ME AS TIMES CHANGE IS BOOKS. AND CURRICULUM. AND I KNOW WE SPENT A LOT OF MONEY ON CURRICULUM , IS THAT, ARE WE EVER GOING TO BE MOVING OR HAVE WE MOVED AT ALL YET TO WHERE MOST OF THE OR SOME OF THE CURRICULUM IS ONLINE ONLY? OR, ON THE CHROME BOOKS ONLY RATHER THAN ACTUALLY HAVING ACTUAL TEXT BOOKS?

>> IS ONE OF THEM CHEAPER? >> WE HAVE, WE STARTED MOVING TOWARDS ESPECIALLY IN OUR MORE RECENT AND LARGE INSTRUCTION MATERIALS FOR ADOPTIONS WHERE FOR INSTANCE WE ARE GETTING SOME OF THE PAPER MATERIALS, AND THEN MAYBE THE MAJORITY OF THAT IS THE AVAILABLE ELECTRONICALLY.

>> BUT THAT DOESN'T SAY IT IS ANYBODY?

>> IT DOESN'T FEEL LIKE IT. >> YOU KNOW ACTUALLY IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, A BOOK THAT WILL LAST YOU IS USING YOU CAN USE IT AS LONG AS IT IS IN ONE PIECE OR TENTACLE PIECE. WHEN IT GOES ELECTRONIC WHAT HAPPENS IS THE LICENSE BECOMES ON A PER STUDENT BASIS SO LICENSE IS GOOD FOR ONE YEAR SO IT MIGHT SOUND GOOD THAT YOU PAID $25 PER STUDENT FOR THAT YEAR FOR ACCESS TO THE CURRICULUM BUT THEN YOU HAVE TO PAY IT NEXT YEAR AND THE NEXT YEAR AND NEXT YEAR SO, YOU KNOW IT'S ACTUALLY THE ARGUMENT IS THE OTHER WAY ACTUALLY YOU ARE GETTING THEM ON A LONG-TERM BASIS MORE THAN YOU ARE ALL IN CURRICULUM. BUT THEY LOSE THE BENEFITS OF REGULATOR UPDATES, PROS AND CONS TO IT. BUT FROM THE FINANCIAL END, I THINK FROM WHAT WE HAVE SEEN IS THE TEXT THAT MANUFACTURERS WERE LOOKING FOR A WAY TO STILL MAKE MONEY OR MORE MONEY YEAR-OVER-YEAR AND THE WAY TO DO THAT IS I WANT SO YOU $3 MILLION I WILL

[01:25:03]

SELL YOU $600,000 IN LICENSES BUT YOU WILL NEED $70 MILLION FOR THOSE KIDS BY THE TIME THEY GO THROUGH TO GRADUATION.

INFORMATION AND DISCUSSION ITEMS. FIRST UP ITEM 4A INSTRUCTIONAL SERVICES PRESENTATION CV USD HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN BITE OF REALITY FINANCIAL LITERACY PROGRAM MR. LOU? NO, MRS. ASHMORE?

>> GO-AHEAD MS. COOPER. >> THAT'S THE WAY WE LIKE IT HERE AT CVUSD, EVERYBODY IS PARTICIPATING FOR THE GOOD OF OUR STUDENTS. TRUSTEES, SUPERINTENDENT DOCTOR MCLAUGHLIN, EVERYBODY HERE, WE HAVE A GREAT PROGRAM TO TALK TO YOU GUYS ABOUT TONIGHT, APOLOGIZED TO HER STUDENTS THAT ARE GOING TO BE UP HERE IN A SECOND I KNOW IT'S A SCHOOL NIGHT WE WILL GET YOU GUYS OUT OF HERE SO YOU CAN GET BACK TO YOUR STUDIES BUT THIS WAS SUPER IMPORTANT I KNOW WE JUST TALKED ABOUT BUDGETS AND WHAT WE HAVE IS BITE OF REALITY, WE HOPE THAT YOUR BUDGETS DO NOT END WITH THE BLACK SCREEN, OKAY? YOUR PERSONAL BUDGETS, BUT WE AS A UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT ALL FOUR OF OUR HIGH SCHOOLS CAME TOGETHER TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS EVENT, AND IT'S PUT ON WITH OUR BUSINESS PARTNERS, LOGIX CREDIT UNION SO FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT GOT TO HEAR ABOUT OUR ADVISORY DAY FOR CAREER EDUCATION, WE TALKED ABOUT HOW IMPORTANT OUR BUSINESS PARTNERS ARE, AND ONE OF OUR MOST IMPORTANT AND VALUED BUSINESS PARTNERS IS LOGIX CREDIT UNION AND THIS IS A PROGRAM THAT THEY HAVE DONE WITH US THAT STARTED WITH OUR DISTRICT DURING COVID AND WE PIVOTED , BUT WE DID THAT ALL VIRTUAL AND IT WAS SO GREAT LAST YEAR THAT WE CAME BACK AND NEWBERRY PARK WE HAVE NICK ERIN HERE AND CAREER EDUCATION COORDINATOR, WE MET OVER AT THE NEWBERRY PARK BRANCH AND THOUSAND OAKS ARE ACADEMIES CAME AND IT WAS

[01:30:02]

FANTASTIC AND THEN WORD SPREAD, YOU DO THAT? YOU DID THAT? WELL CAN WE BUILD IT BIGGER AND WE DID AND WE OUTGREW THAT BRANCH AND SO YOU WANT TO TALK TO ABOUT THAT EVENT THAT WE HAD SO I COULD GO ON AND ON ABOUT IT BUT OUR MEDIA TEAM, PUT TOGETHER A FANTASTIC VIDEO THAT SHOWS THE STARS OF ALL THAT WE DO AND THOSE ARE OUR CVUSD STUDENTS.

>> I AM ANDREA WITH LOGIX CREDIT UNION AND WE ARE HOSTING BITE OF REALITY, AND APPROVED THE SIMULATION ALL THESE HIGH SCHOOLERS ARE GETTING A REAL TESTAMENT TO WHAT IT IS TO BE AN ADULT. TO HAVE TO GO BY TRANSPORTATION, HOUSEHOLD THINGS, KID CARE, SO IT IS KIND OF SOMETHING THAT WILL GO INTO EACH ONE OF THEIR HEADS AND IT'S A GREAT WAY TO GIVE BACK TO HELP THESE STUDENTS LEARN SOME FINANCIAL LITERACY.

SIMULATION GAME LIKE REAL LIFE AND WHERE YOU HAVE A JOB AND YOU KIND OF HAVE LIKE THIS, YOU HAVE TO BUY THINGS AND WE HAVE

TO MANAGE MONEY. >> WE GOT A CODE AND WE GOT OUR SPOUSES. AND A KID. MY KID IS FOUR YEARS OLD.

>> I THINK IT WILL HELP ME BUILD REALLY MAJOR SKILLS FOR WHEN I GET OLDER. SO YOU KNOW LIKE MONEY MANAGEMENT, INSURANCE LIKE ALL OF THAT, ALL THE STUFF I SHOULD BE WORRYING ABOUT LATER ON IN LIFE I AM LEARNING ABOUT RIGHT NOW. AND I THINK IT WILL HELP ME ESSENTIALLY BUILD AND GROW. AND MAKE LIKE THE LIFE THAT I REALLY WANT.

>> I LIKE TO LEARN ABOUT THIS STUFF BECAUSE I THINK IT WAS REALLY HELPFUL TO LEARN ABOUT WHAT TO DO AND WHAT NOT TO DO AND HOW TO SAVE YOUR MONEY WISELY.

>> IT TEACHES YOU A LOT. >> YOU GUYS ARE DOING A GREAT JOB, EVERYBODY IS HELPING ME AND THE CREDIT UNION IS HELPING

A LOT. >> THANK YOU SO MUCH IT IS AWESOME TO BE HERE, I THINK THAT YOU GUYS ARE DOING AN AMAZING JOB WITH GUIDING US IN THESE DIRECTIONS AND I DEFINITELY HOPE THAT I CAN COME BACK AGAIN. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

IT WAS A REALLY GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO COME.

>> AND THAT IS ACTUALLY MY FAVORITE SCREEN OF THE ENTIRE PRESENTATION, NO OFFENSE TO OUR KIDDOS OF COURSE BUT THE FACT THAT ALL OF OUR SCHOOLS CAME TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD OF OUR STUDENTS PARTNERING WITH LOGIX CREDIT UNION WE'VE GOT SOME STARS IN THE AUDIENCE TODAY THAT YOU SAW ON THAT VIDEO AND SO IF YOU GO TO THE NEXT ONE. SO HERE THEY ARE IN ACTION, WE WILL HEAR FROM LOGIX IN JUST A SECOND. YES, OKAY BUT REALLY THEY GET TOGETHER THIS IS FULLY VOLUNTARY AS AN EVENT WHERE THEY RELEASE THEIR STAFF FOR MOST OF THE DAY TO WORK WITH OUR STUDENTS AND AS YOU CAN HERE, THEY HAVE TO GET A JOB, I MEAN THESE LIFE SKILLS, THEY HAVE TO GET A FAMILY YOU WILL HEAR ABOUT SOME OF THEIR FICTITIOUS FAMILIES MANAGING MONEY WHERE THEY START AND THINK THEY WANT THIS KIND OF LIFE AND THEN THEY REALIZE A LITTLE BIT MORE HERE AND THEN DOCTOR HIKE IF YOU WOULD LIKE ANY OF OUR STUDENTS THERE WELL-VERSED AFTER THE TWO HOUR SIMULATION SO THEY CAN DEFINITELY PARTAKE IN THAT CONVERSATION OF BALANCE DID YOU SEE HOW MANY ZEROS WERE IN THAT OTHER BUDGET? RIGHT, RIGHT, SO YOU HAVE TO START WHERE YOU'RE AT AND GROW SO HERE ARE THE STUDENTS IN ACTION AND ALL SMILES ON THEIR FACES REALLY CONTEMPLATING TALKING ABOUT THAT MAGIC MOMENT SOME OF OUR BOARD MEMBERS WERE THERE AND YOU SAW THE KIDS GO YES, I THOUGHT I KNEW THIS AND NOW I CAN GO TELL MY FRIEND OR I WILL GO TELL MY PARENTS AND JUST THAT THEY WERE BUYING INTO IT AND IT WAS ON THEIR PHONE AND THEY STAYED ON TASK. SO THAT IS A MONUMENTAL IF YOU HAVE BEEN IN THE CLASSROOM LATELY, IF THE PHONE IS IN FRONT THERE ARE SO MANY DISTRACTIONS AND THESE KIDS WERE JUST TRYING TO AND THEY KEPT GOING BACK AND RETURNING STUFF. I SAID YES I HAVE TO DO THAT A LOT TOO.

AFTER I GO SHOPPING AND THEN THEY HAD TO GET TO THEIR BUDGET AND THEN THEY MOVED ONTO THE NEXT CATEGORY OF SPENDING IT AS YOU CAN SEE THEY ARE IN IT TALKING TO THEIR FRIENDS AND GIVING EACH OTHER ADVICE AND SO THIS WAS LEARNING IN ACTION AND IT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN ANY MORE REAL. AGAIN THE SMILES, THE MOMENTS THEY CAPTURED A COUPLE AND I WANT TO SHOW YOU, I WENT AROUND AND WE CAUGHT SOME OF OUR VOLUNTEERS HERE REALLY LEANING OVER, THE EXPRESSIONS OF THE STUDENTS SAY EVERYTHING RIGHT HERE OF HOW EXCITED THEY WERE TO BE WORKING WITH THE VOLUNTEERS AND HAVING OUR BUSINESS PARTNERS FROM LOGIX COME IN AND REALLY HEAR THEM AND ADVISE THEM AND KNOW THAT THEY WERE IN AND HAD THEIR BEST INTEREST AT HEART. THE NEXT ONE. AND AGAIN THEY ARE STARING AT EACH OTHER'S PHONE AND THEY ARE NOT LOOKING AT VIDEOS, THEY WERE DOING THE EVENT AND SO THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC AND THE SMILES WERE I BALANCED MY BUDGET. AND MANY , THEY LEARNED

[01:35:06]

ABOUT HOW EXPENSIVE KIDS WERE SO THAT IS CROSS CURRICULAR.

AND THAT WAS IMPORTANT AS WELL AND SO THEY WANTED DIVORCE AS I SAID YOU CAN'T DO THAT IF YOU HAD A SPOUSE THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR. YOU KNOW THEY REALIZE THE HOUSEHOLDS WERE VERY EXPENSIVE AND WE HAD A GREAT TIME WITH IT AND IT JUST SUPPORTS THEIR INSTRUCTION. IF YOU GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE WE ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT HERE IT IS, WE HAD ALL OF OUR PROGRAMS REPRESENTED AND WE HAVE THE ACADEMIES REPRESENTED, WE HAD CONEJO VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL REPRESENTED. WEST LAKE FROM THE CAREERS CLASS AND THE PERSONAL FINANCE CLASSES SO AGAIN CROSS-SECTION EVERY STUDENT IN OUR DISTRICT BENEFITED FROM BEING HERE AND IF I CAN CALL UP OUR STUDENT PRESENTERS IF YOU WANT TO COME ON UP. COME ON, DON'T BE SHY. YOU HAVE WAITED,

LET'S GO. >> FIRST UP WE HAVE JJ JIMENEZ AND SHE WILL TELL YOU HER STORY AT BITE OF REALITY.

>> GOOD AFTERNOON MY NAME IS JJ AND I ATTEND CONEJO VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL, OUR EXPERIENCE AT THE BITE OF REALITY WAS BENEFICIAL FOR THE FUTURE AND THEY MADE US TAKE CONTROL OF OUR MONEY AND HOW WE SPEND IT. IT TAUGHT US THE LESSON TO CHOOSE WISELY ON WHAT IS BENEFICIAL FOR OUR BANK ACCOUNT AND FOR OURSELVES AND SHOW THE VALUE OF MONEY. HE LIKED HOW THERE WERE DIFFERENT PRICE CHOICES FOR EACH ITEM DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH MONEY YOU HAD TO SPEND. FOR EXAMPLE I HAD TO RETURN MY CAR AT FIRST I PICKED A REALLY EXPENSIVE CAR AND THEN TRADED IT IN FOR A USED CAR BECAUSE I NEEDED GROCERIES. THEN AFTER THAT, I REALLY STARTED TO SEE THE VALUE OF MONEY AND HOW TO SPEND IT WITHOUT GOING INTO DEBT OR MAXED OUT. AS I WAS SHOPPING AROUND A NOTIFICATION POPPED UP SAYING THAT I GOT SICK AND MISSED WORK WITHOUT PAY. WHICH REALLY AFFECTED ME SHOPPING FOR ENTERTAINMENT UTILITIES AND PERSONAL CARE. IT WAS A WAKE-UP CALL FOR ME PERSONALLY BECAUSE I COULD CUT DOWN ON DRINKING STARBUCKS EVERY DAY TO SAVE MY

PARENTS MONEY. >> THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE AND BRINGING YOUR STUDENTS ON AND JOINING US IN THAT EVENT. NEXT UP FROM THOUSAND OAKS HIGH SCHOOL PERSONAL FINANCE CLASS

WE HAVE KIMBERLY REYES. >> MY NAME IS KIMBERLY REYES I AM A JUNIOR AT THOUSAND OAKS HIGH SCHOOL AND I WAS ONE OF THE STUDENTS WHO WENT TO THE BITE OF REALITY FIELD TRIP, I HAD A REALLY FUN TIME WHEN I FIRST HEARD ABOUT THE FIELD TRIP I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE A BUNCH OF BORING SLIDESHOWS. WHEN I GOT THERE I WAS SHOCKED THIS EVENT HELPED ME BY LETTING ME LEARN HOW TO BE AN ADULT FOR A DAY. I HAD TO RETURN TWO BRAND-NEW CARS AND A NEW APARTMENT. I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE JUST A GOOD IDEA TO GET MY HUSBAND A BRAND-NEW TRUCK. AND I REALIZED I WAS WRONG FOR DOING THAT. I WANTED TO LIVE THE LIFE THAT THE BEVERLY HILLS PEOPLE IN THE MOVIES LIVE. THIS DEFINITELY MADE ME REALIZE THAT I SHOULD BE SPENDING MY MONEY ON STUFF I NEED AND NOT WANT. LIKE STARBUCKS. MY MIND TELLS ME I NEEDED, I DON'T. THIS EVENT HELPED ME A LOT WITH MY FUTURE BUSINESS I WANT TO OWN IN THE FUTURE, I AM THANKFUL I HAD THE ADULTS AROUND ME TO HELP ME LEARN AND HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE I NEED RIGHT NOW. BECAUSE I KNOW LATER ON WHEN I AM AN ADULT I WILL NOT HAVE THE SUPPORT I HAVE NOW BECAUSE THEY WILL SEE ME AS A RANDOM ADULT AND A STUDENT. I AM A PERSON THAT LOVES TO SPEND MONEY AND THIS HAS BEEN SOMETHING THAT HAS REALIZED A LOT. PEOPLE STAY HOME AND IT COMES AND GOES BUT THAT IS NOT TRUE, THE MONEY IS COMING GOING BUT WHEN YOU SPEND YOUR MONEY ON THINGS YOU DON'T NEED RIGHT NOW YOU WILL NOT KNOW HOW TO SPEND YOUR MONEY WISELY. I WANT TO THANK ALL THE VOLUNTEERS AND THE LOGIX CREDIT UNION FOR SUCH A FUN DAY AND AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE I WANT TO GIVE THANKS TO MRS. COOPER FOR GIVING ME SO MANY OPPORTUNITIES BEING BY MY SIDE SINCE MY FRESHMAN YEAR AND FOR ALWAYS

BELIEVING IN ME. THANK YOU. >> YOU DID IT.

>> AND KIMBERLY WILL BE OWNING A COSMETOLOGY STUDIO SOMEWHERE IN THE CONEJO VALLEY SO WE HAVE CUSTOMERS THERE FOR YOU. UP NEXT WE HAVE AIDEN CARBAJAL.

>> HELLO. AS YOU HAVE SEEN WE WENT ON THIS INTERESTING FIELD TRIP RECENTLY. AND WE LEARNED ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE AND THE EVERYDAY USES OF BUDGETING AND OUR CREDIT SCORE. AND ME AND MY PEERS REALLY ENJOYED IT. AS AN ASPIRING ENTREPRENEUR, BUDGETING IS VERY ESSENTIAL FOR YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE WHEN YOU ORDER THINGS, HOW MUCH OF WHAT TO ORDER. AND CREDIT SCORE IS A MUST. AFTER RETURNING TWO CARS I CAN TELL YOU SO. AND TOOLS LIKE THESE ARE VERY IMPORTANT TO OUR YOUTH NOWADAYS. BEING ABLE TO UNDERSTAND MONEY BEFORE WE GO OUT INTO THE REAL WORLD IS A VERY IMPORTANT SECTOR WE NEED TO COVER. AND I HOPE TO SEE MORE EVENTS LIKE THIS AND I APPRECIATE EVERYONE WHO PUT

[01:40:01]

THIS TOGETHER. AND I APPRECIATE YOU GUYS. THANK YOU.

>> WE ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE AIDEN TWO MORE YEARS IN THE ETHOS ACADEMY AND WE CANNOT WAIT TO SEE WHAT BUSINESS YOU CREATE. LAST BUT NOT LEAST, DESIREE WAS NOT WITH US BUT YOU SAW HER IN THE VIDEO AND HAD A WONDERFUL TIME, SO WE HAVE FROM

THE DATA ACADEMY, JADEN BEALE. >> I WANT TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO QUICKLY SHARE HOW RECENT DATA OFF-SITE AND ENHANCED LEARNINGS FOR MY 10 YEAR PLAN PROGRAM A CAREER EDUCATION AND LIFE SKILLS PROGRAM DATA STUDENTS HAVE BEEN A PART OF IN CLASS. THE PROGRAM PROVIDED THE FOUNDATIONAL UNDERSTANDING OF FINANCIAL LITERACY AND LOGIX OFFSITE GAVE US THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLORE BUDGET, CATEGORIES AND COSTS AND REAL LIFE SCENARIOS. IN CLOSING CAREER EDUCATION AND FINANCIAL LITERACY ARE CRUCIAL PART OF SETTING STUDENTS UP FOR SUCCESS FOLLOWING THEIR HIGH SCHOOL CAREERS AND I APPRECIATE THE BOARD SUPPORT OF DATA AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE THIS EXPERIENCE WITH YOU TODAY,

THANK YOU. >> AS YOU CAN SEE I KNOW WE JUST TALKED ABOUT THE SCHOOL BUDGET, THE STATE BUDGET, THEY HAVE LEARNED A LOT AND MY QUESTION IS TWO CARS? OKAY.

SO, BUT YOU LEARNED NOW. AND THAT IS GREAT AND THAT'S ALL WE WANT IS TO HAVE YOU LEARN BEFORE YOU CROSS THAT STAGE AT GRADUATION SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR EFFORTS AND TO YOUR PEERS EFFORTS AS WELL, CAREER EDUCATION IS VITAL TO WHAT WE DO, IT BRINGS LEARNING TO LIFE FOR THE FUTURE AND SO WE COULD NOT HAVE HAD THOSE LEARNING EXPERIENCES OUT OF A BOOK AND WE COULD NOT HAVE DONE THAT WITHOUT LOGIX CREDIT UNION AND I WOULD LIKE TO BRING UP ANDREA DELUNA. AND SO YOU HEARD MANY TIMES THAT THE REASON THE EVENT WAS SO SUCCESSFUL FOR A STUDENT IS THEY FELT THE CONNECTION WITH LOGIX CREDIT UNION WE FEEL THE CONNECTION WITH LOGIX CREDIT UNION WE GET TO PLAN THESE EVENTS BUT YOUR CARING TEAM WAS ABLE TO BRING LEARNING TO LIFE AND ABLE TO BRING THE FUTURE RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW SO THESE ARE MOST LESSONS THAT PEOPLE LEARN IN 25 YEARS OLD AND THEY ARE IN DEBT AND DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO AND OUR KIDDOS ARE AHEAD OF THE CURVE BECAUSE OF PARTNERS LIKE YOU AND YOU MAKE WHAT WE DO IN THE CLASSROOM ALL THE MORE SPECIAL AND I HOPE HEARING OUR STUDENTS YOU CAN TAKE THAT MESSAGE BACK TO YOUR TEAM AND LET THEM KNOW HOW MUCH WE VALUE YOU AS A PARTNER AND AS A FRIEND HERE IN THE CONEJO VALLEY UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT. WE HAVE A CERTIFICATE , WE THINK THE ENTIRE LOGIX STAFF SO THANK YOU SO MUCH.

>> THANK YOU. >> THIS EVENT WAS AMAZING. WE HAD 74 KIDS LAST MARCH AND WE HAD 174 KIDS IN FEBRUARY. SO THE WORD IS SPREADING, WE WOULD LOVE TO DO THIS MULTIPLE TIMES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. SIMI VALLEY WILL ACTUALLY BE MEETING WITH US TOMORROW SO HOPEFULLY WE CAN INCORPORATE INTO THOSE SCHOOLS ALSO BECAUSE THE SMARTER KIDS AND SMARTER SPENDING LEADS TO A BETTER COMMUNITY SO FINANCIAL LITERACY, TOP-OF-THE-LINE FOR ME. THE REASON WHY I AM IN THE POSITION I AM I THINK IS BECAUSE MY MOM HAD ME BALANCING HER CHECKBOOK WHEN I COULD START ADDING AND SUBTRACTING SO SHE SAID HERE, DO THIS, DO WE STILL HAVE MONEY, YES WE DO.

AND I THINK BRINGING IT DOWN TO THAT LEVEL, WHEN YOU HAVE HIGH SCHOOL KIDS WHO HAVE NO IDEA IT IS IMPORTANT, COLLEGE KIDS COULD USE THIS TYPE OF INFORMATION SO MORE PARK COLLEGES NEXT SO I APPRECIATE YOUR TIME, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HAVING ME AND WE ARE GOING TO BE DOING THIS AGAIN, SO WE WILL SEE YOU SOON. APPRECIATE IT.

>> THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH, ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FROM

THE BOARD? >> MRS. COOPER AND STUDENTS, YOU KNOW BETTER TWO VIRTUAL CARS THAN REAL ONES. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PRESENTATION AND FOR THE ENTHUSIASM WITH WHICH YOU SHARED IT. AND THANK YOU AS ALWAYS MRS. COOPER, JUST MARVELOUS WHAT YOU DO WITH YOUR STUDENTS AND I CAN SEE WHY THEY ARE SO WARMLY APPRECIATIVE OF YOUR EFFORTS.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH WE HAVE OUR QUALITY INDIVIDUAL AS WELL AS DOCTOR LOOKER FROM WESTLAKE HIGH SCHOOL ALL THREE OF US WORK CLOSELY AS A TEAM SO THANK YOU FOR THE KIND WORDS.

>> THANK YOU. >> I GOT TO OBSERVE THE EVENT BUT IT WASN'T QUITE AS IMMERSED SO HEARING THE STORIES FROM THE STUDENTS IS FABULOUS. FROM WHAT LITTLE I HEARD, THEY WERE MAKING SOME HARD DECISIONS AND LEARN SOME GOOD LESSONS ON, I KNOW PROBABLY EVEN ADULTS COULD BENEFIT FROM THIS TYPE OF SIMULATION SO THANK YOU FOR COORDINATING THIS, STUDENTS THANK YOU FOR COMING TONIGHT AND PROVIDING YOUR OBSERVATIONS. SO AGAIN, IT WAS A GREAT EVENT AND I THINK, EVERY STUDENT IN THE CONEJO VALLEY WOULD ABSOLUTELY BENEFIT FROM THIS KIND OF SIMULATION.

[01:45:03]

BECAUSE IT ENCOMPASSES SO MANY THINGS, RIGHT? WE ARE TALKING ABOUT COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS AND IMPORTANCE OF OUR BUSINESSES AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS AND CONNECTING WITH OUR SCHOOLS. IT'S ABOUT THE FINANCIAL LITERACY PIECE WHICH IS SO IMPORTANT AND IT'S ABOUT THAT OVERALL KIND OF HAVING THESE REAL HANDS-ON RELEVANT KIND OF LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS. SO I JUST, IT WAS FABULOUS. AND STUDENTS YOUR PRESENTATIONS WERE GREAT, THANK YOU I DID GET A CHANCE TO SPEAK TO A COUPLE OF YOU AT THE EVENT, KIMBERLY I THINK I SPOKE TO YOU I DON'T KNOW IF YOU REMEMBER AND I ASKED YOU ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE AND I REALLY TOOK THAT WITH ME. LIKE THAT WAS ONE OF THE THINGS I TOOK AWAY FROM THAT WAS KIMBERLY IN PARTICULAR. LIKE WHAT YOU SHARED WITH ME AND I REMEMBER YOU TELLING ME THAT YOU HAD NOT ONLY BOUGHT I THINK THE TWO CARS. BUT IT ALSO, CREATED CHALLENGES IN CARING FOR YOUR CHILD. YOU HAD A CHILD AND YOU HAD TO FIND CHILD CARE FOR YOUR CHILD AND YOU FIGURED OUT THAT YOU WERE NOT ABLE TO HAVE HIGH QUALITY CHILDCARE OR PAY FOR THE HIGH QUALITY CHILDCARE I THINK YOU HAD TO HAVE A RELATIVE CARE FOR THE CHILD OR SOMETHING SO I LOVED HEARING ABOUT THAT AND SEEING THOSE LIGHTBULBS GO ON WITH ALL OF YOU SO THANK YOU.

AND CONGRATULATIONS. FIRST OFF, I KNOW THAT THIS IDEA HAS BEEN PERCOLATING FOR A LONG TIME , LOGIC SINCE YOU SORT OF KING ONTO THE SCENE HERE HAS BEEN KIND OF PUSHING THIS KIND OF IDEA AND I LIKE TO THANK ALL THE EDUCATORS WHO RAN WITH IT. AND HAVE JUST LIKE CTE DAY, JUST BUILT IT AND BUILT IT AND BUILT IT SO WE HAVE 174 STUDENTS THAT IS AMAZING. THE LESSONS ARE INVALUABLE AND THE WAY CLEARLY THE WAY IT WAS TAUGHT RESONATED AND WILL BE REMEMBERED. AND THAT IS THE POWER OF EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING. I DID WHEN I FIRST SAW THE VIDEO WHEN WE GOT THE AGENDA, KIMBERLY AND I HAD THE PLEASURE OF SPENDING A DAY TOGETHER. AND WE TALKED A LOT ABOUT TRAVIS SCOTT'S HOUSE, RIGHT? HE HAS A LOT OF CARS AND WHEN USE START THINKING ABOUT THE CARS FIRST I THOUGHT WE SPENT THE WHOLE DAY TOGETHER AND SHE DIDN'T TELL ME SHE HAD A KID AND THEN I REMEMBER YES. SO, CROSS CURRICULAR. NOW THAT YOU HAD TO GIVE BACK TWO CARS I WANT YOU TO GO BACK AND THINK ABOUT WHAT THAT WHOLE EXPERIENCE MEANT BECAUSE THAT WAS PRETTY SPECTACULAR. BUT, THANK YOU ALL FOR DOING THIS, FOR BRINGING THE OPPORTUNITY TO YOUR STUDENTS. ENQUEUE STUDENTS FOR SHARING IT WITH US BECAUSE, THIS IS WHY WE ALL GOT INVOLVED. SO, THANK YOU. TRUSTEE GILL?

>> THANK YOU FOR ME AS WELL, WONDERFUL PROGRAM AND WONDERFUL PRESENTATION. THANK YOU TO OUR SUPERHERO EDUCATORS, MRS.

COOPER, DOCTOR LOOKER. >> MRS. TORONTO, THANK YOU TO YOU. THANK YOU STUDENTS FOR EMBRACING THIS OPPORTUNITY. AND THANK YOU LOGIX FOR INVESTING IN OUR STUDENTS. IT IS REALLY HEARTENING TO SEE ORGANIZATIONS LIKE YOURS COME SHOULDER TO SHOULDER WITH US AND INVEST IN OUR KIDS, REALLY DEEPLY

APPRECIATE IT, THANK YOU ALL. >> I FORGOT TO MENTION ONE THING THE SPACE THAT WE WERE AT WE OUTGREW OUR BRANCH LOCATION SO THE SPACE WAS ACTUALLY DONATED BY THE SPORTS ACADEMY FOUNDATION SO I WANTED TO GIVE THEM A BIG THANKS AS WELL BECAUSE WE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO HAVE SUCH A LARGE GROUP IF THEY DID NOT PROVIDE THE SPACE.

>> THANK YOU. >> AND I THINK THAT IS IT,

[B. Instructional Services - Presentation: "Proposition 28": Arts and Music in Schools]

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ENTRUSTING US WITH THE CAREER EDUCATION AND OUR BUSINESS PARTNERS AND WE WILL COME BACK WITH OUR NEXT GREAT IDEA SO THANK YOU EVERYONE.

>> ALWAYS WELCOME. THANK YOU.

>> MR. LOU? >> GOOD EVENING, WE THOUGHT THAT NOW WOULD BE JUST A GREAT TIME TO PROVIDE THE BOARD OF EDUCATION AND THE PUBLIC WITH SOME UPDATED INFORMATION ON PROPOSITION 28 WHICH IS ALSO REFERENCED AS THE ARTS AND MUSIC IN SCHOOLS OR AMS FUNDING GUARANTEE AND ACCOUNTABILITY ACT. BEFORE WE KIND OF DIED MORE INTO THE DETAILS, YOU KNOW INFORMATION HAS BEEN SLOW, LIKE COMING OUT FROM THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION, ON LIKE THE SPECIFIC

[01:50:01]

DETAILS IN TERMS OF REQUIREMENTS, REPORTING TO, HOW DO WE CALCULATE THINGS LIKE OUR BASELINE AND BUT, I THINK THAT AS TIME HAS GONE ON, WE CERTAINLY HAVE SEEN AN ACCELERATION OF INFORMATION FROM THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION. AND SO AGAIN THINKING NOW WOULD BE A GOOD TIME TO PROVIDE AN IMPORTANT UPDATE SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THE BACKGROUND PROPOSITION 28 WAS PASSED BY CALIFORNIA VOTERS BELIEVE IT OR NOT NOVEMBER 2022. AND WHAT THAT DOES FOR ALL OF US HERE, CALIFORNIANS ESTABLISHED A NEW AND ONGOING PROGRAM SUPPORTING ARTS INSTRUCTION IN OUR SCHOOLS BEGINNING ACTUALLY THIS SCHOOL YEAR. I SHOULD NOTE THAT SCHOOLS IN CALIFORNIA OR SCHOOL DISTRICT IN CALIFORNIA AND SCHOOLS HAVE RECEIVED THAT FUNDING STARTING FEBRUARY. OF 2024. AND SO AS IT NOTES THERE, PART OF THE PASSING OF THE PROPOSITION WOULD BE THAT A , ONGOING EVERY YEAR, A 1% OF THE STATES PROPOSITION FUNDING GUARANTEE WOULD BE PROVIDED FOR THE PURPOSE SPECIFICALLY FOR THE ARTS. ALSO STATED WOULD BE THAT 80% OF THE FUNDS PROVIDED TO SCHOOLS WOULD BE REQUIRED TO GO TO EITHER CERTIFICATE OR CLASSIFIED STAFFING WITH THE REMAINING 19% OF FUNDS GOING TO TRAINING MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES AND PARTNERSHIPS. NO MORE THAN 1% GOING TO THE ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES TO EXECUTE THE FUNDS. SO IN TERMS OF FUNDING ITSELF, THE CALCULATION THAT WILL BE ONGOING YEAR-TO-YEAR IS BASED OFF OF A SHARE OF THE STATEWIDE ENROLLMENT. AS WELL AS AN ADDITIONAL AMOUNT OF FUNDING FOR STUDENTS WHO ARE SOCIOECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED OR WHO QUALIFY FOR FREE OR REDUCED MEALS. BASED OFF OF THE PRIOR YEAR. THE PURPOSE OF THESE FUNDS REALLY IMPORTANTLY IS TO SUBSEQUENT, SUPPLEMENT ART EDUCATION AND TO ENHANCE ORDER TO IN ADDITION TO THE EXISTING ARTS PROGRAMS THAT WE ARE SO PROUD TO HAVE HERE IN OUR DISTRICT. THE PRELIMINARY ALLOCATIONS FOR OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT FOR THIS YEAR WHICH AGAIN WE RECEIVED IN FEBRUARY OF 2024 IS 2.1 ABOUT $2.1 MILLION. WE WANTED TO SHARE SOME OF THE MANY FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS THAT ACTUALLY ARE AVAILABLE ON THE CDE WEBSITE IF YOU JUST SEARCHED CDE PROP 28. THERE IS AN EXPANDING AND SORT OF A ROLLING UPDATE FOR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS. IF WE WANTED TO SHARE SOME OF THOSE WITH YOU TO THE FIRST QUESTION OF WILL THE FUNDING CHANGE FOR EACH FISCAL YEAR? YES, THERE WILL BE SLIGHT CHANGES BASED OFF OF AGAIN THE SHERIFF STATEWIDE ENROLLMENT AS WELL AS THE PROVISION OF STATE FUNDING. BUT, WE ANTICIPATE YOU KNOW THAT THAT FUNDING WILL MORE OR LESS BE SOMEWHAT CLOSE LIKE FROM EACH OF THE PRIOR YEARS. WHAT TYPES OF ART PROGRAMS CAN THESE FUNDS BE USED FOR? THE PROPOSITION DEFINES ARTS EDUCATION PRETTY BROADLY. PROVIDING SOME EXAMPLES SPECIFICALLY THERE, DANCE, MEDIA ARTS, CRAFT ARTS, GRAPHIC ARTS, COMPUTER CODING ANIMATION, SCRIPT WRITING, ETC.

CAN SCHOOLS PULL THEIR FUNDS TOGETHER AND THE ANSWER IS YES. THIS IS PARTICULARLY APPLICABLE TO ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS WHO AND ALSO IS DEFINITELY IN OUR CASE WHO MAY BE SHARING TEACHERS OR STAFF IN WHICH CASE TWO SCHOOLS OR THREE SCHOOLS CAN PULL THEIR FUNDS TOGETHER TO SAY HAVE AN ARTS TEACHER COME FOR INSTANCE ON MONDAY OR TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY AND THE OTHER SCHOOLS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. THE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ARE VERY SPECIFIC. THAT THE CERTIFICATED STAFF WOULD BE THOSE WHO WOULD BE PROVIDING INSTRUCTION AND IF IT WERE TO BE CLASSIFIED STAFF THAT CERTIFICATED STAFF WOULD HAVE TO BE PRESENT WITH THOSE CLASSIFIED EMPLOYEES PROVIDING THE ARTS EDUCATION. THERE IS ADDITIONAL CLARITY ON THE SUPPLEMENT VERSUS SUPPLANT AND JUST CLEARLY TO NOTE HERE THAT SUPPLEMENT MEANS THAT THE FUNDS APPROPRIATED INCREASE FUNDING OF ARTS EDUCATION PROGRAMS AND DO NOT REPLACE OR SUPPLANT EXISTING FUNDING.

PROGRAMS, EACH YEAR AS IT NOTES, WE WILL HAVE TO CERTIFY AND IN FACT WE HAVE TAKEN OUR PROPOSITION 28 ALLOCATION AND USE THAT TO SUPPLEMENT OUR PROGRAMS. ANOTHER FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION AND INFORMATION TO SHARE SOME OF THE REPORTING

[01:55:07]

REQUIREMENTS SOME OF THEM NOTED THERE. ON EACH SCHOOL IS REQUIRED TO DEVELOP AN EXPENDITURE PLAN, OR THAT PLAN IS NOT REQUIRED TO BE BOARD APPROVED OR SUBMITTED TO THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND ANNUAL REPORTS, WE WILL PROVIDE AN ANNUAL REPORT NOTED WHICH IS THE NUMBER OF FULL-TIME TEACHERS CLASSIFIED STAFF, TEACHING AIDS, NUMBER OF STUDENTS SERVED IN THE NUMBER OF SCHOOL SITES PROVIDING ARTS EDUCATION WE WILL DO THAT AT THE CONCLUSION OF EACH YEAR SO WE CAN REPORT OUT FOR THE YEARS EXPENSES. WE WILL ALSO DO AN ANNUAL CERTIFICATION THAT WE PROVIDE TO THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION NOTING SPECIFICALLY THAT WE ARE MEETING ALL THE STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS OF PROPOSITION 28 AND AMS. THEN FINALLY WE WILL BE REPORTING OUT ANNUAL UNEXPENDED FUNDS TO THE EDUCATION. AND ANOTHER SORT OF RELATED QUESTION QUESTIONS NOT ON THE CDU WEBSITE BUT ONE THAT WE WANTED TO TALK ABOUT HERE IN WHICH DOCTOR HAYEK MENTIONED IN HIS PRIOR PRESENTATION THE QUESTION ABOUT THE ARTS MUSIC INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS DISCRETIONARY BLOCK GRANT WHICH IS A GREAT ACRONYM. BUT IT NOTES THAT IN OCTOBER OF TWO THOUSAND 22, WE ACTUALLY BROUGHT FORWARD TO THE BOARD OF EDUCATION AND OUR TENTATIVE PLAN FOR THESE ONE-TIME FUNDS AND KEEPING IN MIND THAT AT THAT TIME WE DID NOT HAVE ANY SOURCE OF ONGOING ARTS FUNDING.

NOW OF COURSE GIVEN THAT PROPOSITION 28 NOT ONLY WAS PASSED BUT WE ACTUALLY THINK IS REALLY HAPPENING WE CAN TAKE A LOOK AT THOSE ONE-TIME FUNDS AND REALLY RECOGNIZE THE NEED TO USE THOSE FUNDS IN OTHER WAYS AND OBVIOUSLY CONNECTED INTO THE PRESENTATION FROM DOCTOR HAYEK WHICH DID NOT INCLUDE A WOO HOO. AND SO SOME OF THOSE FUNDS WE WOULD THAT WE OUTLINED FOR ARTS FOR ONE TIME WILL GO BACK INTO HELP OFFSET OPERATIONAL COSTS DUE TO THE ANTICIPATED WORK ADJUSTMENT BUT WE WILL HOLD ONTO $500,000 FOR ONE-TIME PURCHASES OF MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS. MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS SPECIFICALLY TO BUILD OUT OUR ELEMENTARY MUSIC PROGRAM TO REALLY HAVE THAT FOCUS ON LIKE ARTS AND EQUITY AND ACCESS TO MUSIC. AND SO OUR NEXT STEPS RIGHT NOW IS TO THINK ABOUT OUR STRATEGIC ARE PLANNED THAT WE BROUGHT FORWARD AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE 2022 SCHOOL YEAR AND THINK ABOUT HOW WE CAN TAKE THAT ARTS STRATEGIC ARTS PLAN AND NOT IN A RUSH THINK ABOUT HOW WE CAN THINK REALLY THOUGHTFULLY ABOUT HOW CAN WE MAKE SURE WE ARE WORKING TO ACCOMPLISH THE GOALS OF THE PLAN IN A MORE COORDINATED SYSTEMATIC WAY TO ENSURE THAT ALL STUDENTS ARE GETTING ACCESS TO THE ARTS IN OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT AND THAT IS AN IMPORTANT PRIORITY FOR ALL OF US. MOREOVER, OUR BIG NEXT STEPS TO PROVIDE SOME CLEAR PROCEDURES AND GUIDELINES TO SCHOOLS AND STAFF ON THE LEGAL REQUIREMENTS SET FORTH THROUGH HERE. NOTED AS WE WILL HAVE TO PROVIDE ANNUAL CERTIFICATIONS AND THERE DEFINITELY WILL BE AUDITING OF THE USE OF FUNDS.

AS WELL AS THEIR OWN INTERNAL PHYSICAL PROCEDURES JUST SO OUR TEACHERS BUT ALSO OUR OFFICE STAFF ARE ABLE TO NAVIGATE AND USE THE MONEY EFFECTIVELY AND PROPERLY AND FINALLY, WE HAVE ACTUALLY PROVIDED OUR PRINCIPALS WITH SOME TRAINING WITH THE HELP OF OUR COORDINATOR EXTRAORDINAIRE BRIAN PETER AND HER ALTS CONSULTANT AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO PROVIDE TRAINING AND INFORMATION TO OUR VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS TEACHERS MOVING FORWARD. WITH THAT, I WILL COME I DON'T HAVE ANY QUESTIONS SLIDE, ANY QUESTIONS?

>> TRUSTEE SYLVESTER? >> I HAVE A BASIC QUESTIONS I'M NOT QUITE UNDERSTANDING SO THE TOTAL AMOUNT GOING TO THE DISTRICT IS APPROXIMATELY THE 2.1 MILLION IT GOES TO THE DISTRICT AND THEN WE ALLOCATE IT TO THE SCHOOL SITES. HAVE WE CONTEMPLATED HOW WE ARE GOING TO DO THAT ALLOCATION? WILL EVERY SCHOOL GET THAT, WILL EVERY SCHOOL THAN HAVE TO AND ANY SCHOOLS THAT DO GET THIS MONEY DO THEY ALSO HAVE TO BITE RIGHT ONE OF THESE PLANS UP I AM A LITTLE CONFUSED.

[02:00:02]

>> RECEIVE ANY OF THE FUNDS. IDENTIFIES THE NUMBER OF UNDERPAID STUDENTS -- STUDENTS WHO QUALIFY AS BEING SOCIOECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED AND PROVIDE A SPECIFIC FUNDING AMOUNT TO EACH SCHOOL.

>> THANK YOU. THAT WAS THE PIECE I WAS MISSING. AREA OF PERFORMING ARTS THAT WE CAN AND SHOULD LEVERAGE COMMUNITY OWNERSHIP. JUST A LITTLE PLUG FOR THAT.

>> COMPLETELY AGREE. ANYBODY ELSE ? TRUSTEES ?

>> THANK YOU FOR THIS PRESENTATION. I JUST WANT TO UNDERSCORE WHAT WAS SAID EARLIER IN THE MEETING THAT THIS COMMUNITY IS INCREDIBLY SUPPORTIVE OF THE ARTS AND ARTS EDUCATION AND THIS BOARD IS COMMITTED TO ARTS EDUCATION FOR ALL OF OUR STUDENTS AND HOW FORTUITOUS BUT NOT REALLY.

WE DID THIS ON PURPOSE . PUT TOGETHER THE STRATEGIC ARTS PLAN WHEN WE DID WITH THE INTENTION WE WOULD MAKE IT GO REGARDLESS AND NOW WE HAVE SOME CONTRIBUTING FUNDING . AND THAT IS REALLY WONDERFUL. IT REALLY IS TERRIFIC.

>> JUST TO QUICKLY NOTE AS WE HAVE DISCUSSIONS AND PARTICIPATE STATEWIDE AS WELL AS DECISIONS AT THE COUNTY LEVEL , A LOT OF FOLKS SAY, HEY, YOU SHOULD REALLY THINK ABOUT HAVING A VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS COORDINATOR.

YOU SHOULD REALLY THINK ABOUT HAVING A STRATEGIC ARTS PLAN.

AND SO IT IS REALLY PROMISING THAT WE HAVE TAKEN THOSE STEPS WELL IN ADVANCE AND CAN REALLY THINK OF THIS MUCH MORE THOUGHTFULLY AND IN A COORDINATED WAY.

>> TRUSTEE GORBACK. >> I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THE REPORT. VERY GOOD. I ALSO WANT TO CONGRATULATE OUR VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS , MR. PETERS, FOR THE WORK HE DOES. EVERY TIME I GO TO A CONCERT OR SOMETHING, HE IS THERE. I DON'T KNOW WHETHER HE HAS A HOME OR JUST USES OUR PACKS, BUT HE IS ALWAYS SO SUPPORTIVE. AND I WANT TO ECHO THAT , YES, THIS BOARD IS SUPPORTIVE AS A WHOLE .

>> YEAH. I JUST WANT TO MENTION THAT PROP 28 IS BASED ON A PERCENTAGE OF PROP 98. SO IT IS SUBJECT TO ANY FLUCTUATIONS BASED ON PROP 98 AS WELL. SO THIS COMPLICATES THINGS LIKE WHEN WE HIRE STAFF AND ALL OF A SUDDEN GET 10 OR 20% LESS THE NEXT YEAR OR WHATEVER. IT JUST CREATES SOME CHALLENGES MOVING

FORWARD. >> TO THAT, I'M HAPPY TO SEE THAT WE TOOK 500,000 -- THE ONE TIME MONEY TO BUY STUFF BECAUSE IF WE HAVE TEACHERS AND NO STUFF, IT MAKES IT HARDER TO TEACH. I REALLY APPRECIATE THAT . AND EVEN IN A CONSERVATIVE BUDGETING PROCESS , IT SHOWS AGAIN OUR COMMITMENT TO THE ARTS BECAUSE THEY ARE TRANSFORMATIVE

. >> AND ASK A QUESTION ?

>> OF COURSE. >> I DIDN'T KNOW IF YOU SAW MY LIGHT ON. SO, I KNOW THAT THEY SORT OF TAKE A WIDE DEFINITION OF THE ARTS WITH THIS . SO WE COULD POTENTIALLY -- WE STILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL -- SCHOOLS GETTING THE MONEY HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO SPEND IT ON THINGS OTHER THAN VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS SPECIFICALLY. LIKE , IT COULD BE -- I KNOW COMPUTER CODING CLASSES WAS LISTED ON THERE. SO CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT HOW THAT MIGHT LOOK LIKE ?

>> THAT IS CORRECT. I BROUGHT BACK UP A SLIDE THAT DEFINES WHAT AN ARTS EDUCATION PROGRAM IS. SO OUR PLAN RELATES AFTER THIS BOARD OF EDUCATION WOULD BE TO PROVIDE A PRETTY CLEAR AND CLEAN COMMUNICATION TO NOT JUST OUR PRINCIPALS BUT VISUAL PERFORMING ARTS TEACHERS TO LET THEM KNOW THIS IS REALLY A BROAD IDEA DEFINITION OF THE ART. SO WE TALK A LOT ABOUT

[02:05:01]

MUSIC IN A LOT OF WAYS, BUT WE DO WANT TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO DO OTHER THINGS. SOME OF THESE OTHER ITEMS TOO ARE VERY CLOSELY RELATED TO CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION. AND I ALSO CAN SPEAK TO -- WE'RE LOOKING AT SOME COLLEGE PATHWAYS AND GRANTS RIGHT NOW. WE ARE ALSO HITTING SOME OF THESE ITEMS. CERTAINLY A SYNERGY OF EFFORT IN ALL OF THESE AREAS.

>> THE COMPUTER CODING JUMPED OUT AT ME BECAUSE THAT IS EXACTLY WHERE WE SAW THE CONNECTION AT THE CTE DAY WITH THE STUDENT AND THE GRAPHICS AND THE ARTISTIC GRAPHICS THAT HE CODED. I THINK IT JUST SHOWS THAT CODING IS NOT JUST FOR

COMPUTERS. IT CREATES ART . >> JUST TO NOTE , TOO $.1 MILLION SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF MONEY, BUT THAT GETS EATEN UP REALLY QUICK IN STAFF. AND THAT IS THE DIRECTION WE HAVE GONE WITH A LOT OF OUR STRATEGIC PLAN. TO HAVE CERTIFICATED TEACHERS WORKING ON OUR SCHOOL CAMPUSES. SO IT WILL GO QUICK . SO TO SAY THAT THERE IS GOING TO BE A LOT OF LEFTOVER DOLLARS AT EACH SCHOOL SITE, I WOULD NOT THINK

THAT WOULD BE THE CASE. >> THAT'S CORRECT.

>> AND THAT WOULD BE WHERE SOME COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS MIGHT

COME IN. >> THANK YOU FOR A GREAT

[C. Instructional Services - Updates and Discussion on the 2024-2025 Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)]

PRESENTATION ON AN IMPORTANT TOPIC. AND WE WILL MOVE ON TO ITEM 4C , INSTRUCTIONAL SERVICES UPDATES AND DISCUSSION ON THE 2024-2025 LOCAL CONTROL ACCOUNTABILITY PLAN. MR. LOO.

OPPORTUNITY TO TALK ABOUT THE UPCOMING '24-'25 LOCAL CONTROL ACCOUNTABILITY PLAN. AT OUR LAST EDUCATION MEETING WE TALKED ABOUT THE C.A.P. UPDATE, WHICH WAS AN UPDATE FOR THIS CURRENT YEAR'S LCAP . WE'RE GOING TO HAVE DISCUSSION ON THE NEXT YEAR'S LOCAL CONTROL ACCOUNTABILITY.

HOPEFULLY THIS PROVIDES SOME CLARITY TO BOARD OF EDUCATION AS WELL AS ALLOW BOARD OF EDUCATION TO PROVIDE SOME CLARITY TO STAFF AS WELL. SO THE PURPOSE FOR TODAY'S INFORMATION AND DISCUSSION IS TO PROVIDE THAT UPDATE TO THE BOARD OF EDUCATION AS WELL AS RECOMMENDATIONS BASED OFF OF , REALLY, THE NEW STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS FOR LCAP. AS I THINK WE HAVE DISCUSSED BEFORE, THIS IS THE START OF A NEW THREE-YEAR TEMPLATE. IN LATE NOVEMBER OF 2023, THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION ADOPTED THIS . AND SO WE HAVE GONE THROUGH A LOT OF TRAINING. WE HAVE ASKED A LOT OF QUESTIONS OF BOTH THE COUNTY OFFICE AND THE CALIFORNIA BOARD OF EDUCATION.

WE ARE GETTING MORE AND MORE CLARITY AS WE GET CLOSER AND CLOSER TO OF COURSE HAVING TO SUBMIT , CREATE, AND SUBMIT THIS NEW LCAP. WE ALSO WANTED TO PROVIDE A FOUR-MINUTE SPACE FOR THE BOARD OF EDUCATION TO DISCUSS AND PROVIDE ANY FURTHER DIRECTION IF A NECESSARY APPROPRIATE EXISTING LCAP GOALS AS WELL AS DIRECTION ON THE LCAP BUDGET COMMITTEE. SO JUST AS A VERY BRIEF OVERVIEW , THE LOCAL CONTROL ACCOUNTABILITY PLAN IS THE STATE'S THREE-YEAR PLAN. OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT'S THREE-YEAR PLAN THAT DESCRIBES OUR GOALS, ACTION SERVICES, AND EXPENDITURES. OUR LCAP FOR US REALLY SHOULD PROVIDE THAT. WHO OUR STUDENTS ARE AND HOW WE ARE SERVING THEM . THE COMPONENTS OF THE 24-25 LCAP ARE NOTED THERE. I WANTED TO SHARE THEM HERE BECAUSE I WILL REFERENCE THEM IN THE REST OF THE PRESENTATION. THERE IS THE BUDGET OVERVIEW FOR PARENTS. THE PLAN SUMMARY. A SECTION SPECIFICALLY ON HOW WE HAVE ENGAGED EDUCATIONAL PARTNERS.

THE GOALS AND ACTIONS SECTIONS . SPECIFIC SECTION IN WHICH WE CALLOUT AND IDENTIFY HOW WE ARE INCREASING AND IMPROVING SERVICES FOR OUR UNDUPLICATED STUDENTS WHO ARE OUR FOSTER YOUTH, ENGLISH LEARNERS, AND LOW-INCOME STUDENTS. REALLY FUN ACTION TABLES THAT HAVE ALL THE BUDGET NUMBERS. AND THEN THE INSTRUCTIONS. THE INSTRUCTIONS IF YOU HAVE EVER PRINTED OUT AN LCAP. IT IS PROBABLY IF IT IS A BLANK LCAP, 80% OF THE WHOLE DOCUMENT. THERE IS A LENGTHY SET OF INSTRUCTIONS . AND WHEN WE GO TO TRAINING AND TALK TO FOLKS ABOUT THE LCAP, THE LCAP INSTRUCTIONS HIMSELF CARRY THE

[02:10:01]

WEIGHT OF THE LAW EVEN THOUGH THERE IS A TEMPLATE TO FILL OUT, THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS ON THE SPECIFIC INSTRUCTION OF WHAT NEEDS TO GO IN THERE. SEVERAL OF THE NEW REQUIREMENTS I'M GOING TO BE SHARING ARE REALLY FINDINGS AND THINGS WE WANT TO SHARE WITH THE BOARD OF EDUCATION THAT WERE PART OF THE INSTRUCTIONS THEMSELVES. SO THE FIRST BIG NEW REQUIREMENT -- KEEP IN MIND THERE ARE MANY NEW REQUIREMENTS THAT ARE NEW FOR THE '24-'25 LCAP. BUT WE'RE SHARING WITH YOU PROBABLY THE MOST IMPACTFUL AND THE ONES THAT WE AS STAFF REALLY TRIED TO THOROUGHLY UNDERSTAND. SO IN THIS SECTION FOR REFLECTIONS, WHICH IS MORE TOWARD THE BEGINNING OF THE LOCAL CONTROL ACCOUNTABILITY PLAN , THE INSTRUCTIONS I JUST COPY AND PASTED THERE. AS A SCHOOL DISTRICT , WE HAVE TO IDENTIFY OVER THE NEXT THREE YEARS OF OUR LCAP . IT NOTES ANY SCHOOL WITHIN THE DISTRICT RECEIVING THE LOWEST PERFORMANCE LEVEL ON ONE OR MORE STATE INDICATORS IN THE '23 DASHBOARD, THAT IS THE DASHBOARD AVAILABLE NOW, IN ADDITION TO A STUDENT GROUP WITHIN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT THAT RECEIVED THE LOWEST PERFORMANCE LEVEL ON THE DASHBOARD . AND THIS IS NEW. ANY STUDENT GROUP WITHIN A SCHOOL WITHIN OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT RECEIVING THE LOWEST PERFORMANCE LEVEL. AN EXAMPLE OF THAT MIGHT BE ABC ELEMENTARY . THE STUDENTS WHO MAY BE OUR ENGLISH LEARNERS ARE THE LOWEST PERFORMANCE LEVEL FOR CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM. ANOTHER EXAMPLE WOULD BE ABC MIDDLE SCHOOL . THE STUDENTS THAT ARE TWO OR MORE RACES.

SCORE THE LOWEST PERFORMANCE INDICATOR IN, SAY, ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS. SO THAT DEFINITELY -- THOSE ARE NEW.

THAT BRINGS US INTO A MUCH MORE GRANULAR LEVEL. SO THAT IS ONE OF THE NEW REQUIREMENTS. JUST REPORTING OUT ON THOSE.

>> AND I ASKED JUST TO CLARIFY ALSO? SOME OF THOSE GO BEYOND THE UNDUPLICATED STUDENT GROUPS THAT THE LCAP HAS FOCUSED ON BEFORE. TWO OR MORE RACES AND OTHER THINGS.

>> THAT IS CORRECT. THAT IS FOR ALL OF THE AREAS IN WHICH STUDENT GROUPS ARE REPORTED ON THE DASHBOARD. UNDUPLICATED STUDENTS ARE INCLUDED. THREE OF THE GROUPS. OFF OF THE TOP OF MY HEAD, PROBABLY FIVE OR SIX OTHER ADDITIONAL STUDENT GROUPS, WHICH WERE REQUIRED TO AS I SHARED HERE REPORT OUT ON.

THE NEXT REQUIREMENT IS TO TAKE THOSE GROUPS THAT I HAVE SHARED. THAT WE HAVE TO REPORT OUT ON. BUT THEN TO IDENTIFY IN ACTION OR ACTIONS TO ADDRESS ALL OF THOSE STUDENT GROUPS IN WHICH THEY PERFORMED IN THE LOWEST PERFORMANCE CAN CATEGORY IN THE 2023 CALIFORNIA DASHBOARD. AGAIN, THOSE MAY BE GROUPS AT THE SCHOOL DISTRICT LEVEL, PERHAPS. THEY MAY BE THOSE -- ALL STUDENTS AT A.B. HIGH SCHOOL . BUT AGAIN, JUST AS AN EXAMPLE, THE ABC HIGH SCHOOL . AGAIN, ENGLISH LEARNERS WHO WERE THE LOWEST PERFORMANCE CATEGORY FOR CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM. SO THAT IS DEFINITELY A NEW REQUIREMENT . IF YOU ARE CURIOUS ABOUT IF THERE ARE ANY OTHER IN THE CURRENT LCAP . DID WE HAVE ANY REQUIRED ACTIONS? THE ANSWER TO THAT IS NO. AND SO I WILL SAY THAT WE ANTICIPATE THIS WOULD BE A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF OUR TOTAL OVERALL RESULTS IN THE CALIFORNIA DASHBOARD. BUT FOR A SCHOOL DISTRICT THAT IS OUR SIZE -- 16,000 STUDENTS. 27 SCHOOLS. IT WOULD BE A CONSIDERABLE NUMBER OF REQUIRED ACTIONS AT THIS POINT. I SHOULD ALSO NOTE TOO THAT THESE REQUIRED ACTIONS ARE REQUIRED UNLESS THE INSTRUCTIONS CHANGE NEXT YEAR TO BE IN OUR LCAP FOR THE NEXT THREE YEARS. I DON'T KNOW, BUT MAYBE I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT IT. I DON'T KNOW WHEN IF THE INSTRUCTIONS POTENTIALLY CHANGE NEXT YEAR AND WE ARE POSSIBLY HAVING TO ADD OTHER GROUPS -- I'M JUST POSTULATING. BUT PERHAPS IN THE FOLLOWING YEAR WE WOULD HAVE TO ADD OTHER NEW GROUPS. SO JUST A POSSIBILITY. NOT A FEAR. DEFINITELY A POSSIBILITY. THE NEXT -- I THINK WE SHARED A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS IN SOME OF OUR PRIOR DISCUSSIONS WITH THE BOARD OF EDUCATION.

ANOTHER ONE OF THE NEW REQUIREMENTS FOR THIS '24-'25 LCAP IS IN THE INCREASED OR IMPROVED SERVICES FOR FOSTER

[02:15:05]

YOUTH ENGLISH LEARNERS AND LOW-INCOME STUDENTS. IN OUR CURRENT LCAP , WE ALWAYS HAD TO CALLOUT WHAT WE CALL A CONTRIBUTING ACTION. THOSE ARE ACTIONS THAT SPECIFICALLY ARE MEANT -- EITHER PRINCIPALLY OR DIRECTLY SUPPORT DUPLICATED STUDENTS. AND WE HAD TO CALL THEM OUT IN A SEPARATE SECTION.

JUST SO THE COMMUNITY IN THE PUBLIC CAN CLEARLY SEE, WHAT ARE WE DOING TO SUPPORT THE STUDENTS? THE NEW REQUIREMENT , HOWEVER, IS THAT BOTH AT THE L.E.A. LEVEL AND SCHOOLWIDE ACTIONS AS WELL AS -- I APOLOGIZE FOR TALKING BACK AND FORTH -- AS WELL AS THOSE THAT ARE LIMITED ACTIONS, WE WOULD HAVE TO PROVIDE A SPECIFIC EXPLANATION ABOUT THE ACTION THAT WE ARE TAKING TO SUPPORT THESE GROUPS OF STUDENTS . WHY IT IS A RELEVANT ACTION TO SUPPORT THE STUDENTS, AND IDENTIFY ONE OR MORE METRICS FOR EACH OF THOSE ACTIONS. TO GO BACK AND FORTH HERE, THE L.E.A. AND SCHOOLWIDE ACTIONS MAY BE ACTIONS THAT ARE ARE PRINCIPALLY SUPPORTING OUR DUPLICATED STUDENTS. FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN WE REDUCE CLASS SIZE OR WE PROVIDE ADDITIONAL ACADEMIC SPECIALISTS AT THE ELEMENTARY OR ACADEMIC INTERVENTION AT THE SECONDARY.

THOUGH CERTAINLY CAN SUPPORT OUR UNDUPLICATED STUDENTS BUT THEY ALSO SUPPORT OTHER STUDENTS AS WELL. THAT WOULD BE A CASE OF L.E.A.-WIDE ACTIONS. THESE ARE ACTIONS THAT SOLELY PROVIDE SUPPORT TO ONE OF THE THREE UNDUPLICATED GROUPS. SOME OF THOSE EXAMPLES MIGHT BE FUNDING FOR BILINGUAL EDUCATORS. THAT IS SPECIFICALLY A SERVICE FOR ENGLISH LEARNERS.

OR PERHAPS ENGLISH LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT TRAINING. THAT IS SOMETHING SPECIFIC TO OUR ENGLISH LEARNERS. EITHER WAY, ALL OF THE SCHEDULING ACTIONS NOW REQUIRE AN ADDITIONAL EXPLANATION. AND AN ADDITIONAL METRIC OR MORE TO MEASURE EACH OF THOSE. JUST FOR SOME CONTEXT , IN OUR CURRENT AND EXISTING , WE HAVE 66 CONTRIBUTING ACTIONS. SO IF WE WERE GOING TO SLIDE THOSE OVER AND DUPLICATE THAT BASED OFF OF THE NEW YEAR'S, THE NEW TEMPLATE FOR THE '24-'25 SCHOOL YEAR WE WOULD HAVE TO IDENTIFY. WE WOULD HAVE TO DO THIS 66 TIMES.

SO TO KIND OF -- BASED OFF OF THESE NEW REQUIREMENTS, WANTING TO SHARE SOME IMPLICATIONS FOR WHAT THIS MEANS. MOVING FORWARD. AS WE REALLY ARE IN A PLACE RIGHT NOW WHERE WE ARE GETTING ENGAGING OUR EDUCATIONAL PARTNERS NOW. WE ARE REALLY STARTING TO THINK ABOUT WHAT THIS NEW LCAP NEEDS TO LOOK AT. BASED ON WHERE WE ARE AT IN TIMING, IN ORDER TO MEET THE STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS I HAVE SHARED WITH YOU IN ADDITION TO OTHERS , WE ARE REALLY SEEING THAT LCAP DOCUMENT AS HAVING TO INCLUDE ADDITIONAL ACTIONS AND METRICS THAT ADDRESS OUR UNDUPLICATED STUDENTS BUT ALSO AND IMPORTANTLY OTHER STUDENT GROUPS WHO HAVE PERFORMED IN THE LOWEST AREAS BASED OFF OF THE CALIFORNIA DASHBOARD. SO AGAIN, IT IS BOTH GROUPS . IN ORDER FOR US TO MEET THOSE REQUIREMENTS. HERE I KIND OF DID A LITTLE BIT OF A MOCKUP.

SO THIS MAKES OUR LCAP HAVE A MUCH GREATER FOCUS JUST TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS ON STUDENTS JUST DEMONSTRATING MORE KNEE BASED OFF OF THIS CURRENT LCAP. SO AN EXAMPLE OF HOW THIS MIGHT LOOK WOULD BE AS JUST A SAMPLE CONCEPT. WE WOULD PROVIDE ACTION SERVICES FOR EXAMPLE TO INCREASE ENGLISH-LANGUAGE ARTS FOR OUR STUDENTS. AND WE COULD IDENTIFY ACTIONS TO SUPPORT ALL OF OUR STUDENTS IN THE AREA OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS. BUT BASED OFF OF THE STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS, WE WOULD ALSO HAVE TO CALLOUT ACTIONS FOR OUR ENGLISH LEARNERS AND HISPANIC STUDENTS AND STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES. ANY STUDENT GROUP THAT PERFORMED LOIS IN THE CALIFORNIA DASHBOARD THIS YEAR. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THAT TOO, TO NOTE WE DO HAVE AND I'LL TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IT NEXT. WE DO HAVE OTHER ALLIED PLANTS IN OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT. MULTILINGUAL LEARNER PLAN. STRATEGIC PLAN FOR INCLUSION. AND WE CAN CERTAINLY TAKE SOME OF THE ACTIONS FROM THEIR AND USE THAT TO ADDRESS IN THIS CASE THE NEED FOR STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT FOR ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS. BUT WE WOULD ANTICIPATE TOO HAVING TO LIKELY ADD ADDITIONAL ACTIONS AS WELL BASED OFF OF THE NEW REQUIREMENTS. THE OTHER

[02:20:06]

APPLICATIONS TOO -- THIS IS SOMETHING WE HAVE TALKED A LOT ABOUT AT THE BUDGET LCAP COMMITTEE -- IS IN LOOKING AT, I WOULD SAY , THE NEW SCOPE OF OUR LOCAL ACCOUNTABILITY PLAN , THERE ARE OTHER WAYS FOR US TO SHOW STRONG ALIGNMENT AND COORDINATION BETWEEN OUR LCAP AND OTHER PLANS AND ACTIONS NOTED HERE. THE STRATEGIC PLAN FOR INCLUSION. DIVERSITY , EQUITY, AND INCLUSION PLAN. PLAN FOR THE ARTS AS WELL AS AND IMPORTANTLY SCHOOL PLANS FOR STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT. SO WE COULD DO THIS IN THE NEW TEMPLATE IN THE PLAN SUMMARY AS WELL AS THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE EXPLANATION. SO NOT NECESSARILY IN THE ACTIONS PIECES BUT IN THE NARRATIVE PIECES THROUGHOUT THE DOCUMENT. AS WELL AS SPECIFICALLY CALLOUT IN THESE PLANS , FOR INSTANCE, WHERE THERE IS AN ALIGNED ACTION. SO THE COMMUNITY CAN KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS NOT JUST WHAT WE ARE DOING IN THE LCAP TO MEET THE STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS. THERE ARE ALL THESE OTHER COORDINATED EFFORTS HAPPENING. SO, THAT KIND OF CONCLUDES THE UPDATES AND INFORMATION ON WHAT THE NEW LCAP REQUIREMENTS ARE AND WHAT SOME OF THOSE IMPLICATIONS ARE.

I WANTED TO JUST SHARE WITH THE BOARD OF EDUCATION IF THERE IS ANY DISCUSSION WHAT OUR EXISTING LCAP GOALS ARE. AND THESE ARE GOALS WE HAVE HAD SINCE THE 2017 -2018 SCHOOL YEAR. I WILL NOT READ THEM, BUT YOU CAN NOTE THEM THERE. THE NEXT THING I WANTED TO SHARE TOO IN CASE THERE IS ANY DIRECTION TO OUR BUDGET LCAP COMMITTEE, WE HAVE SCHEDULED THESE REMAINING MEANINGS -- MEETINGS. SO WITH THAT AND BEFORE WE GET TO ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS, SOME RECOMMENDED NEXT STEPS WOULD BE THAT STAFF WOULD WORK TO REALLY REDESIGN THIS '24-'25 LCAP HOW WE AS A SCHOOL DISTRICT WOULD REALLY TACKLE THESE TYPES OF REQUIREMENTS. IT WOULD LOOK DIFFERENT IN TERMS OF THE ACTIONS THEN HOW WE HAVE DONE THINGS IN THE PAST. BUT I ALSO WOULD NOTE THAT IT IS BECAUSE OF THE NEW REQUIREMENTS LIKE THE COMPREHENSIVE IN NATURE.

IT IS NOT JUST OUR UNDUPLICATED STUDENTS. IT IS ALL OF OUR STUDENT GROUPS WHO HAVE AN IDENTIFIED NEED. WE WOULD ALSO RECOMMEND JUST COMMUNICATING OUT THESE NEW REQUIREMENTS TO ALL OF OUR EDUCATIONAL PARTNERS , WHETHER THOSE BE STUDENTS, STAFF , AS WELL AS THEIR PARENTS AND GUARDIANS. I HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO THE SPECIAL EDUCATION -- CD AC TO PROVIDE INFORMATION TO SOME OF OUR FAMILIES. MY INTENT IS TO PROVIDE SOME OF THIS INFORMATION TO AN UPCOMING MEETING FOR OUR PARENTS THAT ARE THERE AS WELL AS TO WHEN WE START WORKING WITH OUR -- WHEN WE START OUR FORMAL ENGAGEMENT WITH EDUCATIONAL PARTNERS LIKE NEIGHBOR ASSOCIATIONS, ADMINISTRATORS, AND OUR STUDENTS , THAT WE WOULD FRAME THIS AND EXPLAIN WHAT THE CHANGE AND SHIFT IS.

AND, YEAH. THAT JUST LEADS TO AS WE SEEK THE INPUT, PROVIDING EXPLANATION AND RATIONALE AND HELPING GET THE INPUT TO REALLY HELP US RE-CREATE THIS NEW LCAP FOR THE '24-'25 SCHOOL YEAR.

AND THEN OF COURSE TO BRING FORWARD OUR PROPOSED LOCAL CONTROL ACCOUNTABILITY PLAN TO THE BOARD OF EDUCATION IN LATE MAY, EARLY JUNE , AND THEN BRING IT FORWARD AGAIN FOR APPROVAL. I REMEMBER TO PUT A QUESTION AND DISCUSSIONS

SLIDE. >> OTHERWISE WE MIGHT HAVE GOTTEN. -- FORGOTTEN. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. LOO. THAT WAS VERY THOROUGH. I'M SURE THERE ARE QUESTIONS AND

COMMENTS. >> CAN WE GO BACK TO -- FIRST OF ALL, THANK YOU FOR THE REPORT. THANK YOU FOR THE REPORT. VERY EXTENSIVE . CAN WE GO BACK TO SLIDES FOUR AND FIVE? AND BEFORE WE DO THAT , I HAVE A QUESTION. I DON'T KNOW FOR YOU OR FOR YOU. DOES THE STATE STILL PROVIDE OUR FUNDING AND GENERAL FUND SUPPLEMENTAL FUND AND

CONCENTRATION GRANTS ? >> YES. IT IS THE SAME FUND .

IT COMES THROUGH THE SAME FUND. SO WHEN YOU SAY IT IS A ONE DOLLAR AMOUNT. A PIECE OF THAT IS WHAT I SHOWED EARLIER

[02:25:02]

THROUGH SUPPLEMENTAL DOLLARS.

>> AND WE DON'T GET CONCENTRATION GRANTS BECAUSE OUR WHOLE DISTRICT AS A DISTRICT DOES NOT QUALIFY .

>> UNDUPLICATED PUPIL PERCENTAGE HAS TO BE ABOVE 55%.

WHOLE DISTRICT IS NOT ABOVE 55%, WE LOSE A BIG PART OF THAT FUND. THE CONCENTRATION GRANTS . YET ON SLIDE FOUR --

>> LET ME JUST CLARIFY. WE DON'T LOSE. WE DON'T QUALIFY. SO WE DON'T LOSE IT. WHERE OTHER DISTRICTS SAY THEY GET THAT THIRD FUNDING STREAM OF DOLLARS SECOND FROM OUTSIDE

. >> THE STATE WANTS US TO REPORT ANY SCHOOL WITHIN . BUT WE LOSE FUNDS EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE SCHOOLS -- INDIVIDUAL SCHOOLS THAT QUALIFY. BUT WE DON'T HAVE OVERALL AS A DISTRICT WE DON'T QUALIFY. THEY WANT US TO REPORT THE SCHOOLS THAT DON'T MEASURE UP ON THE DASHBOARD. AM

I MIXING TWO THINGS UP? >> INDIVIDUAL SCHOOLS CAN EARN CONCENTRATION DOLLARS. CONCENTRATION OUT OF OUR VOCABULARY ALTOGETHER AS A DISTRICT. SUPPLEMENTAL WOULD

BE OUR -- >> I GUESS MY RESENTMENT IS WE WANT TO REPORT PARTICULAR SCHOOLS. THEY HAVE A HIGH PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS THAT QUALIFY. THEY WANT US TO REPORT THAT BUT WE DON'T GET FUNDED FOR IT.

>> I DON'T NECESSARILY KNOW IF WE WOULD HAVE INDIVIDUALS THAT WOULD LOOK LIKE THAT ANYHOW. IT WOULD STILL BE UNDER THAT PERCENTAGE. IF YOU ARE JUST LOOKING AT TITLE I SCHOOLS, WE HAVE SCHOOLS THAT QUALIFY FOR TITLE I DOLLARS THAT ARE CONSIDERED SCHOOLWIDE TITLE I. BUT IT IS A DIFFERENT -- ONE, IT IS FEDERAL FUNDING. TWO, IT IS NOT BASED SOLELY ON THE MAKEUP OF EVERY SINGLE STUDENT ON CAMPUS. A PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS WHO QUALIFY

>> OKAY. >> OTHER THOUGHTS? QUESTIONS? BACK AND HAVE SOME CONVERSATION ABOUT THE GOALS IF THERE IS GOING TO BE ANY CHANGES. IF THE BOARD DOES NOT WANT TO HAVE THAT CONVERSATION OR WE ARE NOT GOING TO CHANGE ANYTHING, WE CAN STAY THE SAME. BUT THIS IS THE OPPORTUNITY RIGHT NOW THAT WE NEED TO HAVE CONVERSATION ON GOALS IN THIS PRESENTATION AND IF THERE IS ANY FURTHER DIRECTION TO THE BUDGET LCAP COMMITTEE. I JUST WANTED TO CLARIFY BECAUSE WE REALLY SKIPPED OVER THESE TWO SLIDES REALLY QUICK. I WANTED TO LET THE BOARD KNOW WE HAVE TO HAVE THIS CONVERSATION TONIGHT OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE. BEFORE WE MOVE FORWARD WITH THIS.

PRESENTATION. IT WAS VERY EASY TO UNDERSTAND. I JUST HAD ONE QUESTION. FOR THE NEW REQUIREMENTS , PARTICULARLY FOR EXAMPLE SLIDE SIX , THE INCREASE OR IMPROVE SERVICES FOR LOW INCOME STUDENTS, IS THERE ANY GUIDANCE AS TO WHICH DOLLARS SHOULD GO TO WHICH STUDENT GROUP? LOW INCOME STUDENTS REQUIRE THE MOST NEED. IF ALL THE MONEY GOES TO THEM, IS THERE ANY GUIDANCE

>> THE WAY THAT THE STATE PROVIDES US THE FUNDING IS BASED OFF OF THE DISCRETION OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. THOSE SUPPLEMENTAL FUNDS SHOULD GO EITHER PRINCIPALLY OR DIRECTLY SUPPORT THOSE STUDENTS. BUT THERE IS NOT NECESSARILY A PERCENT CALCULATION. 15% TO FOSTER YOUTH, X PERCENT TO ENGLISH LEARNERS. IT IS REALLY A DETERMINATION OF EACH LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT TO IDENTIFY THOSE ACTIONS.

>> REALLY . ALSO BACK UP TO THE SCHOOL SITES AND THEIR SCHOOL PLANS ON HOW THEY -- BECAUSE THE WAY OUR BUDGET GOES OUT TO THE SCHOOL SITES IS BASED ON THE NUMBER OF DUPLICATED STUDENTS THEY GET. SO THERE'S A PARTICULAR DOLLAR AMOUNT THAT GOES TO THE SCHOOLS. THAT IS WHERE THE SINGLE SCHOOL PLAN FOR STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT COMES IN SO THAT THEY CAN ALLOCATE DOLLARS ARE TWO SPECIFIC ACTIONS TO SUPPORT THEIR

STUDENT GROUPS. >> TRUSTEE GILL.

>> I JUST WANT TO TAKE THE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE GOALS SEPARATELY FROM SOME OTHER THINGS I WANT TO SAY ABOUT THIS. SO THE BUDGET LCAP COMMITTEE. ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS THAT WAS DONE IN AN EARLY MEETING IN THE YEAR WAS

[02:30:04]

TO TAKE THAT QUESTION, GO OUT TO EDUCATIONAL PARTNERS.

MEMBERS NETWORK TO GATHER INFORMATION. THE CONSENSUS WAS THAT THESE GOALS CONTINUE SERVICE AS WELL, BUT WE NEED TO UPDATE THEM AND THERE WERE SOME LANGUAGE SUGGESTIONS. DO I HAVE

THAT RIGHT? >> THAT'S CORRECT.

>> THERE IS A GOOGLE SHEET WITH ALL OF THAT WONDERFUL INFORMATION SOMEWHERE. AND I WOULD AGREE , MS. GILL. THAT WAS THE CONSENSUS OF THE GROUP THAT THE GOALS MADE SENSE AS BROAD GOALS AND THAT THERE MAYBE WAS SOME WORDING UPDATES

THAT COULD HELP . >> SO WE ARE NOT -- WE ARE NOT SAYING WE ARE ADOPTING THESE LITERALLY. WE'RE TAKING ALL

THAT WORK THAT WAS DONE. >> ASKED SOMEBODY NOT ON THE COMMITTEE, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THAT. BUT I'M SURE, KNOWING ALL THE INPUT, IT WOULD PROBABLY BE VERY REFLECTIVE AND SUPPORTED. ANYTHING ON GOALS SPECIFICALLY?

>> I KNOW THERE'S A COUPLE DIFFERENT STRANDS HERE THAT WE

MAY WANT TO DISCUSS. >> STICK WITH GOALS RIGHT NOW AND THEN WE WILL GO TO THE REST.

>> SO, I KNOW THESE WERE CREATED IN '17-'18. AND, YOU KNOW, I KNOW THAT THERE ARE SOME LANGUAGE SUGGESTIONS IN THAT GOOGLE SHEET THAT CAME BACK FROM THE COMMITTEE. I KNOW I HAD SOME THOUGHTS AND SUGGESTIONS ON A COUPLE TWEAKS RATHER THAN UNNECESSARILY REVAMPING ALL OF THEM. KIND OF KEEPING THEM IN THE SAME. IF YOU WANT ME TO SHARE MY THOUGHTS, I SHARED THEM WITH THE LCAP BUDGET COMMITTEE.

I'M HAPPY TO SHARE. >> I DON'T KNOW HOW GRANULAR

WE WANT TO GET HERE. >> WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO DO SOMETHING BECAUSE THE BUDGET LCAP COMMITTEE IS GOING TO MEET BEFORE WE DO. IS THAT CORRECT?

>> YES. IT IS THE DAY BEFORE. >> SO IT WOULD BE INTERESTING.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE WORK THAT HAS BEEN DONE. IF YOU ARE -- I WOULD ASSUME THAT IF YOU HAVE HAD SUGGESTIONS, THEY WERE

ALSO NOTED IN THE DOCUMENT . >> NO. I JUST BROUGHT THEM UP AT THE LAST MEETING. I AM NEW TO THE COMMITTEE. SO IT WAS REALLY MY FIRST OPPORTUNITY. AND WE WERE GOING TO TALK ABOUT

IT AT THE NEXT MEETING. >> AT SOME POINT WE HAVE TO HAVE SOME LCAP GOALS BECAUSE WERE NOT GOING TO GET VERY FAR WITHOUT THEM. I WOULD PREFER TO HAVE A CONVERSATION THIS EVENING BECAUSE THE LCAP COMMITTEE WILL STOP UNTIL WE GET THE GOALS. WE ARE GOING TO STOP. AND HE WILL KILL HIMSELF THROUGH THE MONTHS OF JUNE TRIED TO PUT TOGETHER THE LCAP.

I MEAN, MR. LOO. SO LET'S HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT GOALS.

>> FROM MY PERSPECTIVE, I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR SOME OF THE SUGGESTIONS. IF THERE ARE TWEAKS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN IMPLEMENTED. ROUGHLY CRAFTED OUT THROUGH THE COMMITTEE.

MAYBE THIS DID NOT HAPPEN. BUT IT WOULD BE INFORMATIVE FOR ME TO KNOW SOME OF THOSE SUGGESTIONS AS WELL .

>> SO THE LCAP BUDGET COMMITTEE . AGAIN, WE HAD EVERY MEMBER OF THE COMMITTEE GO WORK WITH THEIR GROUP TO COME BACK WITH FEEDBACK. WE COLLECTED SUGGESTIONS. IT WASN'T LIKE EVERYONE DID THEIR OWN WORDSMITHING OF IT. THINGS THAT I WILL REPORT ON THAT SEEMED LIKE REPEATED SUGGESTIONS WERE , FOR INSTANCE, IN GOAL FOUR, ADDING MENTAL HEALTH .

RECOGNITION OF SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL, AS WELL AS MENTAL HEALTH. THE OTHER ONE I THINK WOULD BE COOL THREE. THE IDEA THAT WE TALKED ABOUT INFORMING THE COMMUNITY. AND I THINK THERE WERE A NUMBER OF FOLKS WHO HAD SAID MAYBE WE NEED TO SPECIFICALLY CALL OUT PARENTS AND GUARDIANS. AS WELL AS TO TALK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT WHAT THAT COMMUNITY PEACE MEANS. BUT THERE WAS ONE GROUP THAT KIND OF DID MORE OF A REWRITE IN TERMS OF JUST THE OVERALL CADENCE, I WOULD SAY, OF THE GOALS . THAT WAS NOT NECESSARILY CONSISTENT

[02:35:01]

THROUGHOUT. >> JUST TO CONCUR WITH MR. LOO , BECAUSE I DID GO THROUGH THE EXERCISE AND I CAME UP WITH THE EXACT CONSENSUS DRIVEN THINGS YOU JUST DID. GOAL FOUR.

ADDING IN MENTAL HEALTH OR MENTAL WELL-BEING . SEEMED TO BE PRETTY PREVALENT. GOAL THREE WAS ALSO KIND OF INCORPORATING THE NOTION OF TWO WAY COMMUNICATION AND ENGAGEMENT. NOWHERE DID I REALLY SEE THAT ANYONE WANTED A WHOLESALE REDOING OF ANY OF THESE GOALS. I THINK THE CONSENSUS WAS EACH OF THESE GOALS AND THE INTENT AS THEY STAND WERE ALL APPROVED. I THINK WITH EVERY SINGLE OF THE EDUCATIONAL PARTNERS THAT CAME BACK THERE WAS SOME -- A LITTLE BIT OF REWRITING. I DID NOT SEE ANY CONSENSUS AROUND THERE. SO I CONCUR ON THE PERCEPTION OF WHAT WAS DONE , MR. LOO. AND WE DO NOT WANT YOU KILLING YOURSELF IN JUNE.

>> WE DEFINITELY DO NOT WANT THAT.

>> I AGREE. A LOT OF THE SUGGESTIONS, I THINK , SIMPLY REFLECTED THAT OUR EMPHASIS HAS SHIFTED SINCE 2017-2018.

ADDING MENTAL WELL-BEING TO GO FOUR REFLECTS WHAT WE ARE CURRENTLY DOING AND WHAT WE INTEND TO CONTINUE DOING. IT DOES NOT CHANGE THE INTENT OF THE GOALS SUBSTANTIALLY . OR IT WOULDN'T PREVENT US FROM MOVING FORWARD, I DON'T THINK.

>> YEAH. NO. I THINK AS I SAID IN THE COMMITTEE MEETING TWO WEEKS AGO OR WHENEVER IT WAS ANY SUGGESTIONS THAT I HAVE AT THIS POINT WERE COMING WITH ANY INTENTION TO OVERTURN THESE GOALS. ANY OF THESE GOALS. I HAD A COUPLE THOUGHTS ABOUT JUST TWEAKING A COUPLE OF THEM A LITTLE BIT. I REALLY WONDERED ABOUT, WHAT DO WE REALLY MEAN BY THESE? TAKE PICTURE, WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY RIGHT NOW. THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A NEW THREE-YEAR CYCLE. I REALLY WANT TO MAKE SURE WE ARE REALLY BEING INTENTIONAL ABOUT WHAT WE WANT FOR THE NEXT THREE YEARS. SO ONE OF MY QUESTIONS WAS, OKAY, GOAL THREE. PROVIDE COMMUNICATION . TARGETED OUTREACH THAT INFORMS THE COMMUNITY. THAT IS REALLY JUST GETTING INFORMATION OUT THERE. WE TALKED ABOUT THE COMMITTEE.

I THINK THERE ARE SOME ACTIONS IN THERE THAT NEEDED TO BE MOVED AND THINGS LIKE THAT. BUT WHAT I THOUGHT WAS RATHER THAN -- TO ME, THIS JUST SEEMS VERY VAGUE AND FRANKLY WEEK. MY THOUGHT WAS JUST STRENGTHENING IT BY A FEW WORDS . PROVIDE COMMUNICATION AND TARGETED OUTREACH THAT INFORMS THE COMMUNITY PROGRAMS AND OPPORTUNITIES THAT SUPPORT POSITIVE STUDENT OUTCOMES AND BUILD STRONG CONNECTIONS BETWEEN PARENT COMMUNITY MEMBERS AND CVUSD SCHOOLS AND STUDENTS. LIKE WHAT TRUSTEE SYLVESTER JUST SAID. TALKING ABOUT THE TWO WAY COMMUNICATION AND ENGAGEMENT FOR THAT WAS MY SUGGESTION. GOAL THREE. A TWEAK THAT I THINK IT'S TO THE INTENT OF WHAT WE WANT. THAT IS JUST THROUGH VIOLENCE. JUST PUTTING THAT ONE OUT THERE. MY OTHER ONE WAS AROUND GOAL TWO.

YOU KNOW, THIS ONE ALSO ENSURE THAT OUR STAFF IS PROVIDED A TARGETED PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT. WELL, OF COURSE. OF COURSE WE ARE PROVIDING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TO OUR STAFF. FOR ME, I WAS WONDERING IF IT IS REALLY AN HR -- GIVING STAFF THE TOOLS THAT THEY NEED TO DO WHAT THEY NEED TO DO . SO I JUST WONDER IF THERE WAS SOME WORDING THAT MAYBE GOT MORE TO THE INTENT. THIS IS WHAT I CAME UP WITH. I WILL JUST READ IT TO YOU HERE. SOMETHING LIKE PROMOTING THE DEVELOPMENT, RECRUITMENT, AND RETENTION OF HIGHLY QUALIFIED AND EFFECTIVE STAFF THROUGH TARGETED AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT. HIGHLIGHTING ALL JOB RESPONSIBILITIES TO SUPPORT POSITIVE STUDENT OUTCOMES. AND I ACTUALLY WOULD LOVE TO SEE , LIKE, SOMETHING IN THERE THAT IT'S ALSO ABOUT SUPPORTING STAFF. ANYWAY, THOSE ARE MY THOUGHTS. ON THOSE TWO GOALS. SINCE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT IT

NOW. >> OF COURSE WE ARE.

>> TRUSTEE NAIMA KAHL. >> ABOUT GOAL TWO, WOULD IT BE HELPFUL OR I GUESS WITHIN THIS REALM OF THE LCAP TO

[02:40:04]

INCLUDE SOMETHING ABOUT THE DIVERSITY OF STAFF? HAVING THAT INTENTION TO HAVE HIGHLY QUALIFIED, DIVERSE , AND EFFECTIVE STAFF? I KNOW THAT IS SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN TALKED A LOT ABOUT WITH THE STUDENTS AS WELL AS THE DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION PLAN. IF WE INCLUDED SOMETHING ABOUT

THAT, THAT MIGHT SHOW. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>>

>> FOR ME, IT IS HARD TO -- PART OF WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THESE GOALS IS THAT IT ALWAYS ENDS WITH POSITIVE STUDENT OUTCOMES.

SO JUST IN LISTENING -- IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO LEAD POSITIVE STUDENT OUTCOMES, THEN ROUNDING IT OUT AGAIN, THIS IS WHY. HEADING AT HOME AT THE END. I THOUGHT THAT WAS FOR ME VISUALLY A GOOD SIGNAL. SO THAT PIECE -- I KNOW ONE OF THE ONES -- CAME AFTER THAT POSITIVE STUDENT OUTCOMES. FOR ME, I WOULD LIKE TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO ADD THE THOUGHTS EARLIER IN THE GOAL. AT THE SAME TIME, I GUESS THE QUESTION IS FOR YOU, DR. MCLAUGHLIN. IF WE ARE SAYING THESE ARE THE GOALS , WE WANT TO WORDSMITH SLIGHTLY. DOES THAT HELP WITH THE CREATION OF THE LCAP ? ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A SPECIFIC THING RIGHT NOW FOR THESE GOALS ?

>> NO. I THINK IF THE BOARD FEELS COMFORTABLE , THE WORDSMITHING OF THE GOALS CAN GO TO THE BUDGET LCAP COMMITTEE NEXT MEETING BECAUSE IT IS BEFORE OUR NEXT ONE. BUT I DO THINK THE NEXT BOARD MEETING THEY NEED TO BE BROUGHT BACK. SO EITHER WE CAN HAVE AGREEMENT AND/OR AS A BOARD WORDSMITH. WE SAT HERE AND WERE SMITH THESE BACK IN 2017. GOT DOWN TO FOUR. HAS SERVED US WELL. NOW IT IS A MATTER OF IF THE BOARD FEELS COMFORTABLE WITH IT. BUDGET LCAP COMMITTEE. TRUSTEE POWELL GAVE SOME GOOD LANGUAGE PUTTING THAT IN. OTHER THEMES THAT CAME OUT OF WHATEVER THE ANALYSIS IS THAT CAME OUT OF THOSE THAT ARE ON THE LCAP BUDGET COMMITTEE. MAKE THOSE TWEAKS. HAVE THE COMMITTEE LOOK AT IT. KNOW THAT THE AGENDA IS AT THE NEXT BOARD MEETING.

WHEN WE POST THE AGENDA, WE WILL HAVE THE AGENDA ITEM BUT WE MAY NOT HAVE THE GOALS POSTED ON THAT FRIDAY BECAUSE IT HAS TO GO THROUGH THE BUDGET LCAP. AND THEN IT WILL GET POSTED THAT EVENING ONCE THE BUDGET LCAP MEETING IS COMPLETE. SO AS LONG AS I THINK WE ARE GOOD WITH THAT STRUCTURE , THEN I THINK WE HAVE GIVEN ENOUGH DIRECTION TO MR. LOO ON AT LEAST THE GOALS PORTION OF THIS DISCUSSION.

>> I THINK IT IS CLEAR WE ALL AGREE WE ARE FOCUSING ON THE RIGHT THINGS . WITH LANGUAGE ADJUSTMENTS. AM I GETTING

CONSENSUS ON THAT? >> YEAH. I'M PERFECT THE COMFORTABLE WITH THE SUGGESTION AND KNOW THAT IT IS NOT ATTACHED . WE WILL ATTACH IT LATER LIKE WE ALWAYS DO.

>> MAY I ASK OR SUGGEST SOMETHING? I REALLY LIKE TRUSTEE KAHL'S ADDITION OF THE WORD, DIVERSE. I WAS WONDERING IF WE AS A BOARD TONIGHT CAN GET A CONSENSUS TO SEND IT BACK TO THE COMMITTEE THE INPUT OF THAT WORD.

>> I SORT OF FELT WE JUST DID BUT I WILL GET NODS. YES. OKAY.

>> IT WAS ALL IN THAT. OKAY, GREAT. OTHER QUESTIONS.

COMMENTS. WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED FROM US?

>> I WILL JUMP IN. >> AGAIN, BACK TO THE BUDGET HELLCAT. I KNOW WE HAD HAD A CHARGE GIVEN AT SOME POINT EARLIER THIS YEAR. I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE WE OPEN IT UP BECAUSE THIS IS A GOOD TIME IF THERE'S ANY ADJUSTMENTS TO THAT CHARGE OR ANYTHING ELSE. WE NEED THE BUDGET LCAP COMMITTEE TO LOOK AT. THIS IS A PRIME TIME TO GIVE DIRECTION TO DR. AND MR. LOO. IF NOT, WE WILL STICK WITH THAT ORIGINAL CHARGE. BUT I JUST THINK SINCE WE WERE HAVING THIS AS A

[02:45:02]

DISCUSSION TONIGHT, THIS IS A GOOD TIME TO KNOW WE HAVE THREE MEETINGS LEFT . AND IF THEY'RE GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, OBVIOUSLY WE HAVE TWO WARD MEMBERS THAT ARE ON THEIR THAT WERE GOOD. AND IF NOT, THEN IT WOULD BE NICE TO HEAR YOUR

SUGGESTIONS. >> TRUSTEE SYLVESTER.

>> OKAY. I WILL ASK YOU THIS DIRECTLY, MR. LOO. THE BUDGET LCAP COMMITTEE HAS GONE THROUGH GOAL ONE. WE HAVE LOOKED AT THE WORDING OF GOAL ONE. WE HAVE LOOKED AT THE ACTIONS OF GOAL ONE. THERE HAVE BEEN SOME SUGGESTIONS MADE. WE HAVE LOOKED AT THE METRICS UNDER GOAL ONE. GIVEN THOSE CONVERSATIONS AND OUTPUT FROM THE GROUP AND GIVEN THE NEW REQUIREMENTS OF THE LCAP, HAS THAT BEEN HELPFUL? HAVE THOSE DISCUSSIONS BEFORE WE MOVE ON TO GOALS TWO, THREE, AND FOUR -- WILL THAT HELP IN THE CREATION OF THIS NEWLY REVISED

LCAP DOCUMENT? >> SOME PARTS OF THE COMMITTEE HAVE BEEN REALLY HELPFUL. ESPECIALLY INITIALLY. I ONLY SAY SOME PARTS OF IT ONLY BECAUSE AS WE SHARED WITH THE COMMITTEE IN OUR LAST MEETING , AS WE BETTER UNDERSTAND WHAT THE NEW REQUIREMENTS ARE, IT REALLY HAS TURNED A LOT OF THINGS UPSIDE DOWN IN TERMS -- BECAUSE THE CONVERSATION AND FEEDBACK WAS ON OUR CURRENT LCAP. THE SUGGESTIONS WERE, HEY, HOW DO WE TAKE OUR CURRENT LCAP AND SHIFTED BASED ON FEEDBACK? AS I SHARED HERE , I THINK THOSE REQUIREMENTS REALLY -- WE HAVE NOT HAVE THOSE CONVERSATIONS BECAUSE WE DID NOT REALLY FULLY KNOW. THE COMMITTEE HAS BEEN HELPFUL IN PROVIDING GREAT SUGGESTIONS , WHICH I HAVE SHARED WITH THE GROUP THAT DEFINITELY WILL BE IMPLEMENT IT IN TERMS OF HOW WE CAN BETTER COMMUNICATE AND HOW CAN WE ALIGN THE DIFFERENT PLANS OUTSIDE OF THE LCAP. THOSE THINGS HAVE BEEN HELPFUL.

OUR PLAN IS TO GO THROUGH GOAL TWO IN MARCH . I THINK COOL 32 AND FOUR IN APRIL . BUT I THINK -- AS I PUT ON THERE A RECOMMENDATION OF THE NEXT STEP. I THINK THAT COMMITTEE REALLY CAN HELP PROVIDE SOME FEEDBACK BASED OFF OF THE NEW STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS. HOW SHOULD THINGS LOOK AND BE ORGANIZED? I THINK THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL. YOU KNOW. HOW DO WE MAKE SENSE OF THE NEW REQUIREMENTS AND PUT THAT INTO OUR LCAP ? THEY CAN STILL PROVIDE THE FEEDBACK. I THINK IT HAS BEEN HELPFUL ON THE ACTIONS THEMSELVES. BUT SOME ADDITIONAL FEEDBACK ON HOW WE ORGANIZE IT MOVING FORWARD I

THINK WOULD BE -- >> OKAY. I THINK THAT ANSWERS MY QUESTION. RELATED QUESTION. WHO ACTUALLY SITS DOWN AND WRITES THE LCAP? IS IT JUST YOU ? HOW DOES THE PROCESS

WORK? >> THERE IS ONLY ONE NAME ON THE LCAP. BUT WE AS A TEAM WORK TO PROVIDE AND WRITE THOSE ACTIONS TOGETHER AND WORK ON THE NARRATIVE PIECES TOGETHER AS A GROUP. AS DISTRICT STAFF.

>> I WOULD NOTE IT IS A LOT OF SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS WITH COMPUTER AND PROBABLY NO KIDS AROUND.

>> IT IS THE TWO SCREENS. YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE TWO SCREENS.

>> AND WORKING ON IT. SO JUST KNOW THAT. I THINK THE OTHER PIECE IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW. THE NEW TEMPLATE CAME OUT IN NOVEMBER. WE HAVE HAD THREE TRAININGS AT THE COUNTY LEVEL .

THE MOST RECENT ONE WAS KIND OF THE ONE THAT BLEW SOME THINGS UP ON WHAT THE STATE -- AND THEY CAN'T EVEN ANSWER QUESTIONS. SO IT IS FRUSTRATING BECAUSE THEY ARE PRESENTING INFORMATION . STAFF AND MR. LOO ARE ASKING QUESTIONS AND HAVE TO GET BACK TO US. WE ARE IN A BACK-AND-FORTH WITH THE COUNTY AND THE STATE. YOU KNOW, WHILE I AM JUST FORWARDING THAT OUT TO EACH BOARD MEMBER, I CAN ONLY TALK TO EACH ONE OF YOU INDIVIDUALLY. AND WE NEEDED TO HAVE SOME CONVERSATIONS AS A GROUP. THIS IS WHY WE ARE HERE.

SO IT IS NOT LATE ON ANYTHING -- IT IS LATE TIMING ON THE STATE BECAUSE I CANNOT ANSWER ANY ACTUAL HARD QUESTIONS ON HOW WE ARE GOING TO GET THIS PROCESS THROUGH AND THE TEMPLATE ITSELF. JUST SO THE COMMUNITY KNOWS WHERE WE ARE

[02:50:06]

AT. OBVIOUSLY I SHARED IT AT THE LAST BOARD MEETING A LEVEL OF FRUSTRATION WHEN THEY MAKE THESE MAJOR CHANGES. THEY GIVE VERY LITTLE TIME TO TURN IT AROUND AND GET IT READY FOR THE MONTHS OF JUNE'S PROCESS.

>> TRUSTEE GILL. >> I'M GLAD WE HAVE A SLIDE THAT TALKS ABOUT HOW THE LCAP WILL REFER OUT TO THE OTHER PLANS. I THINK IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO SAY THAT OUR LCAP IS NOT A COMPILATION OF EVERY OTHER PLAN THAT WE HAVE .

LOOKING AT THE GUIDANCE FROM THE CDE IS -- YOU SPEND A LOT OF TIME . BUT THERE IS THIS SENTENCE ABOUT OVERARCHING FRAME , WHICH IS GIVEN PRESENT PERFORMANCE AND INDICATORS ON THE CALIFORNIA SCHOOL DASHBOARD, HOW IS THE L.E.A. USING ITS BUDGETARY RESOURCES TO RESPOND TO THE K-12 STUDENT NEEDS AND ADDRESS ANY PERFORMANCE GAPS, INCLUDING BY OBLIGATION TO IMPROVE SERVICES TO FOSTER YOUTH, ENGLISH LEARNERS, AND LOW-INCOME STUDENTS. SO TO PUT THAT INTO THE CVUSD TALK AND TALK ABOUT WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT IN THE LAST MEETING , HOW DO WE AN EXTRAORDINARILY HIGH-PERFORMING DISTRICT NATIONWIDE FOCUS OUR ATTENTION ON THE PLACES INDICATED IN THE DASHBOARD AND INDICATED IN OUR OWN REPORTING WHERE WE KNOW WE HAVE CONFIRMED IMPROVEMENT AND HOW DO WE DO THAT IN ADHERING TO THE GOALS THAT THE BOARD SET OUT IN ITS MOST RECENT AND PREVIOUS GOALSETTING SESSIONS THAT WE ARE IN PURSUIT OF EXPANDED EXCELLENCE AND WE GET THERE THROUGH EXPANDING EQUITY . THAT. I THINK IF THAT IS OUR FRAME, RATHER THAN WHAT WE DO IN THIS DISTRICT STARTING WITH -- I THINK THE WHOLE DIRECTION HAS BEEN TO MAKE THIS DOCUMENT MORE FOCUSED, MORE STRATEGIC , AND MORE FUTURE FACING. AND IF WE USE THAT FRAME OF, WE ARE ALREADY EXCELLENT BUT WE KNOW WHERE WE HAVE AREAS THAT WE ARE ALREADY COGNIZANT OF. HOW DO WE PUT THAT DOWN SO EVERYBODY SEES IT AND UNDERSTANDS IT? I FEEL LIKE THAT MIGHT BE A DIRECTION THAT IS PRODUCTIVE FOR US . I WILL JUST GIVE ONE EXAMPLE BECAUSE IT IS A FAMILIAR EXAMPLE. WE HAVE TALKED RECENTLY ABOUT ADDING REPRESENTATION TO OUR PROGRAM.

THAT HAS BEEN A CONTINUING PRIORITY. WE KNOW WE ARE NOT DONE WITH THAT WORK. WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE IT. IT IS EASY TO IMAGINE HOW THAT AS A GOAL AND ACTIONS WOULD BENEFIT THE STUDENTS THAT WE ARE PLACING THE MOST FOCUS ON, BUT OBVIOUSLY BENEFIT ALL OF OUR STUDENTS. SO IS THAT A SORT OF FRAMEWORK THAT WE CAN USE TO APPROACH THE WORK? THAT CAP BETWEEN WHERE WE ARE , WHICH IS PRETTY AWESOME, AND WHERE WE

KNOW WE HAVE TO GO. >> I THINK THEY REFRAMED IT FOR US. BY TALKING ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE GAPS, WHICH --

YES. >> HONING IN . THAT IS WHAT

THEY --. >> I MEAN, I KNOW IT FEELS LIKE -- LIKE TRUSTEE GILL JUST SAID, WE ARE TRYING TO MOVE TOWARD THIS IDEA OF MAKING IT MORE STREAMLINED AND FOCUSED AND ALL THAT. NOW WE GET ALL THESE ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS.

BUT IT STILL SEEMS -- I KNOW IN THE DISCUSSIONS WITH THE COMMITTEE IT SEEMS LIKE THERE IS A LOT OF PIECES THAT WE CAN STILL KIND OF STRIP OUT THAT MAYBE DON'T NEED TO BE IN THAT DOCUMENT WHILE AT THE SAME TIME WE ARE REFORMATTING TO MAKE THIS COMPLIANT , IF YOU WILL, TO THE STATE . STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS. I HAD A COUPLE QUESTIONS. CAN I ASK YOU MY

[02:55:02]

QUESTIONS? FOR EXAMPLE , I'M SORT OF REPEATING WHAT TRUSTEE GILL WAS SAYING. A LOT OF THESE SITE LEVELS, SUBGROUP LEVEL ACTIONS WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO BE INCLUDING NOW -- A LOT OF THOSE ARE GOING TO BE ACTIONS THAT WE ARE DOING ON A DISTRICT WIDE BASIS THAT WE CAN JUST TAILORED TO THAT SPECIFIC

SCHOOL. CORRECT? >> YEAH. IN MY MIND IT IS A COMBINATION OF THE DISTRICTWIDE ACTIONS AND SCHOOL SITE ACTIONS. FOR EXAMPLE -- JUST EXAMPLES. ENGLISH LEARNERS. HOW DO WE SUPPORT THEIR ACHIEVEMENT IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS ? AS A SCHOOL DISTRICT, LET'S REALLY FOCUS IN ON PROVIDING HIGH-QUALITY TRAINING OVER THE COURSE OF MULTIPLE YEARS. THAT IS A DISTRICTWIDE ACTION. BUT THEN THE ABC ELEMENTARY SCHOOL . THEY MAY BE FOR INSTANCE TAKING OTHER SUPPLEMENTAL FUNDS AND PROVIDING ADDITIONAL, SAY, HOURS AND SUPPORT FOR BILINGUAL PARENT EDUCATORS. SO IT REALLY IS KIND OF A MULTIPRONGED APPROACH OF THE SCHOOL SITES. AND REALLY A MORE TAILORED NEED FOR TAILORED FOCUS BASED OFF OF THEIR SPECIFIC GROUPS THAT ARE THERE AND THEN US PROVIDING ANOTHER

LAYER. >> PART OF THIS TIMELINE OF PUTTING THIS TOGETHER REALLY IS THAT WORK DIRECTLY WITH THESE SITES THAT HAVE FALLEN IN THE RED AND COMING UP WITH THOSE ACTIONS IN COLLABORATION WITH THEM.

>> ANYONE ELSE? TRUSTEE SYLVESTER.

>> I GUESS THE PART I'M CONFUSED ABOUT -- I UNDERSTAND THE CURRENT LCAP COUNTRY MEETING ACTIONS AND NONCONTRIBUTING ACTIONS. BUT WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT -- IT ALMOST SEEMS LIKE IN THE NEW CHART WITH THE DISTRICTWIDE ACTIONS AND HOW THEY MAY IMPACT -- THAT WOULD BE ALMOST A REACTION. WHEN WE HAVE DIVERSE LITERATURE CHOICES , THAT IMPACTS ALL STUDENTS, BUT IT ALSO HELPS OUR DUPLICATED POPULATION. SO IT SEEMS LIKE ALMOST EVERY ACTION WOULD BE IN THAT CHART. AM I MISINTERPRETING THAT ?

>> NO, YOU'RE NOT. THERE IS A LOT OF CROSS WORK . ESPECIALLY THINKING ABOUT IT FROM A GOAL STANDPOINT. WE THINK ABOUT, FOR INSTANCE, THE PERFORMANCE OF PERHAPS OUR HISPANIC STUDENTS.

WE THINK ABOUT MAY BE GOAL ONE . THE WORK THAT WE'RE DOING TO EXPAND MORE LITERATURE. BUT THEN YOU COULD ALSO THINK TOO IN GOAL THREE PERHAPS THERE IS SOME ADDITIONAL TARGETED COMMUNICATION AND OUTREACH TO FAMILIES. IN GOAL FOUR, IT IS PROVIDING SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL, AND MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORTS.

ALL OF THAT WORKING IN CONJUNCTION. I DON'T HAVE THE BIG MAP FIGURED OUT, BUT I DO THINK THAT SHOWING THE LCAP TO GO BACK TO THAT -- SHOWING THAT AND HAVING SOME OF THEIR FEEDBACK ON HOW THAT LOOKS WOULD BE HELPFUL BECAUSE THEY

ARE DEFINITELY INTERTWINED. >> AND THEN , I WAS JUST GOING TO ADMIT THAT MAYBE MY EXAMPLE WAS A POOR ONE BECAUSE IT IS NOT AN AREA WHERE WE ARE IN THE RED. AND THAT REALLY MAYBE IS A CHANGE IN APPROACH WE ARE TALKING ABOUT FROM AND WHY I THINK YOU ASK THIS QUESTION. WAS IT HELPFUL WHAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING BEST ARE GOING GOAL BY GOAL? I DON'T THINK WE'RE GOING TO GET WHERE WE NEED TO GO IF WE TAKE THE EXISTING LCAP AND SAY, HOW CAN REPAIR THAT ? THAT'S NOT GOING TO WORK. WE HAVE TO START FROM THE GAP ANALYSIS WHERE WE ARE NOT MEETING OUR HIGH EXPECTATIONS FOR OURSELVES. START THERE AND BUILD UP. AND KNOW THAT WE ARE NOT GOING TO COME UP WITH A DOCUMENT THAT DISCUSSES EVERY SINGLE THING WE DO IN DISTRICT EVERY DAY BECAUSE THAT INFORMATION -- WE ARE NOT

LOOKING TO DUPLICATE THAT. >> I GUESS THE OVERARCHING QUESTION -- AND THIS HAS BEEN DISCUSSED HERE. IT HAS BEEN DISCUSSED. IS THE STRATEGIC DOCUMENT THAT LOOKS AT NOT JUST HOW WE ARE GOING TO ADDRESS UNDUPLICATED STUDENTS AND HOW WE ADDRESS AREAS IN THE RED, BUT HOW OTHER THINGS THAT DON'T FALL INTO THOSE CATEGORIES -- I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT LIST IS, BUT THAT IS REALLY THE QUESTION. AND OBVIOUSLY WE HAVE SOME REALLY GOOD PLANS. TRANSITIONING ] TRUSTEE GILL HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD

[03:00:22]

FOR ME IT HAS BEEN REFRAMED IT IS NOT, IT IS LIKE THIS IS A NEW LCAP PROCESS AND IT IS FOCUSING ON PERFORMANCE STOPS, I FEEL LIKE THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE NEED MY MOMENTS THINKING, A STRATEGIC VISION DOCUMENT IT IS A STRATEGIC DOCUMENT IN THAT IT IS THE STRATEGY WE USE TO FIX THESE PERFORMANCE GAPS. IN DISTRICT AND AS SCHOOL SITES. THESE ARE THE ACTIONS AND THE PLANS ENDS WHAT , AND WHAT OUR SCHOOLS ARE DOING. AND I LOVE WHEN YOU SAID EARLIER MR. LOO WHEN YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE NARRATIVE LEAD INS THESE ARE WHAT WE DO FOR ALL STUDENTS, WE ACKNOWLEDGE. AND HERE ARE SOME SPECIFICS. AS WELL AS HAVING YOU KNOW MAYBE HIGH-LEVEL EXECUTIVE DOCUMENT THAT POINTS TO EVERY SINGLE PLAN WITH THE LCAP IS ONE OF THOSE PLANS. THAT'S JUST THIS MOMENT

THINKING. >> I'M JUST TRYING TO THINK OF SPECIFIC ACTIONS THAT WE INCLUDE NOW AND I DO AGREE WE CANNOT NECESSARILY MAP THE CURRENT LCAP AND TAKE IT AND MESH IT AROUND AND CREATE A NEW ONE, THAT'S NOT THE PLAN THINGS LIKE ONE OF THE BOARD PRIORITIES IS LOOKING AT GREAT DISTRIBUTION AND GRADING FOR MASTERY AND IS THAT SOMETHING WE WOULD INCLUDE I MEAN CLEARLY IT HAS AN IMPACT ON CERTAIN GROUPS AND PROBABLY IMPACTS EVERY STUDENT SO I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WOULD NOT BE IN THERE?

>> THERE IS A RED INDICATOR POINTING US TOWARDS THAT WORK, RIGHT? THERE IS ONE. IT IS THE DNS.

>> OKAY. LET ME THINK MORE ABOUT EXAMPLES. SO WE WILL GO BACK TO THE DIVERSE LITERATURE BECAUSE THERE IS NO INDICATOR THERE. IS THAT INCLUDED ARE WE LOOKING AT THE LENS OF THIS WILL HELP OUR ENGLISH LEARNERS MAYBE THERE IS MORE LITERATURE AROUND THAT I MEAN DO WE THEN INCLUDE THAT OR IS THAT NOW

SEPARATE? >> I THINK IT WAS A BAD EXAMPLE. BUT THE MASTERY FOR GRADING IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF HOW THIS PLAN IS FOCUSED ON STRATEGIC AND FUTURE FACING.

BECAUSE IT TAKES THAT INDICATOR AND GIVES US SOMETHING TO POINT OUR WORK TOWARD.

>> AND MAY BE THINGS LIKE DIVERSE LITERATURE AND EVEN THOUGH IT WAS A BAD EXAMPLE FOR THIS MAY BE IT BELONGS IN THE HANDBOOK VISION AND GOALS. TYPE DOCUMENT. THAT GETS POINTED TO WHICH IS A SEPARATE CONVERSATION. LIKE IF YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT I THINK WE HAVE TO HAVE SOME TRUST THAT WORK THAT WE HAVE COMMITTED TO DO YOU'RE NOT GOING TO STOP

DOING. >> THAT'S 100% , I CAN SAY FULL THROATED HEARTEDLY, THAT OUR PROFESSIONAL EDUCATORS KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. WE WOULD NOT BE IN THE TOP 3% IN THE NATION IF OUR EDUCATORS DID NOT KNOW WHAT THEY WERE DOING. SO,

TRUSTEE SYLVESTER? >> I'M STILL WORKING ON THIS, WE TALK ABOUT SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING. DOES THAT INCLUDE, I MEAN WHAT DO WE DO WITH THAT? ARE WE IN THE RED SOMEWHERE THERE? IS IT JUST I MEAN, WHAT?

>> I WAS PLAYING THE GOALS THROUGH MY HEAD AND WHICH ONES YOU KNOW ARE GOING TO DIG TATE THAT WE NEED TO ADDRESS? SO I JUST, THAT JUST WORKED THROUGH MY BRAIN AS LIKE THREE MINUTES

AGO. >> CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM I AM SURE MENTAL HEALTH PLAYS INTO THAT SOMEWHERE. DENTAL HEALTH

AND WELL-BEING. >> SO WE WOULD CONTINUE TO

[03:05:03]

INCLUDE THAT? BECAUSE ? >> I MEAN IT'S NO SURPRISE, IF OUR STUDENTS ARE NOT MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY ABLE TO ACCESS THEIR EDUCATION? THEY CANNOT LEARN. AND THEN AND THEN THEY WILL NOT HAVE POSITIVE STUDENT OUTCOMES SO

THEY WOULD BE NO. >> I WOULD NEVER DISAGREE WITH THAT I GUESS WHAT I'M SAYING IS I THINK MORE ABOUT THE GOALS AND MOST OF WHAT, A LOT OF THE HIGHER-LEVEL ACTIONS ARE GOING TO REMAIN LIKE I DO BELIEVE THAT.

>> YES, BECAUSE JUST BECAUSE THEY WANT US TO BE FOCUSING IN ON DOING THESE WHATEVER THEY ARE CALLING IT ADDITIONAL ACTIONS OR FOR THESE KIDS THAT ARE DUPLICATED STUDENTS AS WELL AS THE RED DASHBOARD INDICATORS WHETHER IT IS A SCHOOL SITE OR SUBGROUP, THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT'S NOT STILL INTENDED TO BE A PLAN FOR ALL STUDENTS. IN A DISTRICT.

>> IT IS A COMPREHENSIVE PLANNING TOOL TO SUPPORT ANNUAL GOALS FOR ALL PEOPLES. THAT'S WHAT THE DOCUMENT IS INTENDED

TO BE. >> I DON'T NECESSARILY THINK THAT'S THE CASE. I THINK THAT AS A DISTRICT THAT'S BEEN OUR FOCUS SINCE 2017 AND 18 AND IT HAS BEEN CLEARED TO MAKE THIS A STRATEGIC DOCUMENT FOR ALL STUDENTS BUT WE KNOW AND THE BOARD REPORT INFORMATION I HAVE SHARED THERE ARE A NUMBER OF DISTRICTS AROUND US THAT ARE NOT USING THAT AS A COMPREHENSIVE STRATEGIC PLAN FOR THE DISTRICT SO IF THAT WAS WHAT THE LCAP WAS MEANT FOR THAN WE WOULD HAVE 100% ALL 19 DISTRICTS IN THE COUNTY WOULD INCLUDE EVERYTHING BUT WE KNOW THAT'S NOT THE CASE SO NOT THAT I AM DISAGREEING I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE WE ARE CLEAR. WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT IT AS A STRATEGIC DOCUMENT AND A LOT OF DISTRICTS ARE FOCUSED AND THE FEEDBACK WE GOT FROM THE COUNTY IS TO FOCUS ON SUPPLEMENTAL. WITH THESE NEW INDICATORS THAT FOLLOW SUBGROUPS THAT DO NOT FALL UNDER THAT SUPPLEMENTAL I THINK THAT'S WHERE FUZZINESS IS AND WHERE WE ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT AND ASK QUESTIONS. HOW DOES THIS ALL PLAY OUT?

>> TRUSTEE POWELL? >> I AM BACKTRACKING TO THE COMMENT EARLIER ABOUT HOW EVEN THE COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION HAS NOT REALLY BEEN ABLE TO GIVE A LOT OF CLARITY AND I JUST WANT TO LET YOU KNOW I AM FRUSTRATED WITH THAT BECAUSE I THINK THAT AS A COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION THEY SHOULD BE REALLY ABLE TO DO MORE TO GIVE CLARITY TO DISTRICTS IN THE COUNTY AND I JUST I AM SORRY THAT OUR DISTRICT IS NOT GETTING THAT. THAT KIND OF SERVICE BECAUSE THAT IS

FRUSTRATING. >> IT SO WE CAN HAVE TURNAROUND

ON EVERY QUESTION WE ASK. >> TRUSTEE GILL?

>> I THINK THOSE RED INDICATORS FOCUS THE LINE AND IF WE USE THAT AS OUR STARTING POINT, I THINK WE COULD ACCOMPLISH SOMETHING IMPORTANT FOR OURSELVES. AND WE HAVE ALL THE OTHER PLANS THAT ARE LINKED UP WITH THIS DOCUMENT WHERE WE REALLY FOCUS ON THOSE GAPS. AND I AM CONFIDENT THAT THE COMMITTEE YOU KNOW, LOOKING AT THE RED INDICATORS, IF THERE IS A FINDING THAT MY GOSH WE ARE OVERLOOKING SOMETHING REALLY IMPORTANT, THE COMMITTEE WILL IDENTIFY THAT

AND ADD THAT BACK IN. >> I WOULD AGREE WITH THAT, JUST BECAUSE WE ARE FOCUSING ON IN THIS DOCUMENT, ON THE GAPS DOESN'T MEAN THAT EVERYWHERE ELSE WE ARE NOT FOCUSING ON

EVERYONE. IN DIFFERENT WAYS. >> I THINK IF WE LOOK AT PLUG IT IN THE SPOTS WHERE THE RED INDICATORS ARE, I THINK THAT'S THE STARTING POINT, I THINK FOLLOWING THAT, COULD BE ONCE WE GET THAT DONE, ARE THERE GAPS THAT WE NEED TO PLUG IN, SOME OTHER OVERARCHING GOALS OR OVERARCHING ACTIONS THAT WE ARE DOING AS A DISTRICT BUT I THINK THAT DIRECTION OF STARTING OFF WITH FOCUSED ON THE AREAS OF RED AND THE

[03:10:03]

INDICATORS I THINK AT LEAST GETS US, AT LEAST GETS STAFF MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION ON STARTING TO BUILD A PLAN OUT. WITH FEEDBACK FROM THE BUDGET COMMITTEE.

>> AND YOU ARE RIGHT, WE REEVALUATE EVERY TIME. RIGHT? SO IF IT'S NOT WORKING FOR US OR FOR OUR COMMUNITY, THEN WE

CAN READJUST. >> I UNDERSTAND AND CLEARLY THOSE PIECES HAVE TO BE DONE, THAT IS INDISPUTABLE THAT WE NEED TO DO THAT AND THEN I DO LIKE THE IDEA OF THEN SEEING WHERE THE GAPS ARE, WHAT I DON'T WANT IS UNUSABLE DOCUMENT AND I DON'T THINK AT THE END OF THE DAY IF WE HAVE SOMETHING THAT IS SO BROAD BUT REALLY DOES NOT SERVE ANY PURPOSE SO I WOULD WANT TO SHY AWAY FROM THAT, I HAVE TAKEN A LOOK AT THE TEMPLATE OF THESE INSTRUCTIONS AND THEY GO ON FOR PAGES, IT IS DAUNTING. I FELT BAD FOR YOU MR. LOO, I DO, AND I DO LIKE THE IDEA THAT WE TALKED ABOUT A FRIEND LINKING ALL THE VARIOUS PLANS THAT WE'VE LOOKED AT AND KEEPING IN MIND THERE IS GROUPS LIKE GAIT LIKE OUR GAIT STUDENTS LIKE THERE IS NOT A PLAN SO WE NEED TO BE INTENTIONAL ABOUT SOME OF THOSE OTHER STUDENT GROUPS WHO PROBABLY MIGHT NOT SHOW UP WE DON'T MEASURE THAT POPULATION SO THEY ARE NOT GOING TO SHOW UP, THAT'S SOMETHING OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD. BUT AGAIN, THE REQUIREMENTS ARE PRETTY ONEROUS, THEY ARE. AND I DON'T WANT TO DISTRICT RESOURCES TO BE SPENT HOURS AND HOURS AND HOURS DEVELOPING SOMETHING. THAT'S NOT A GOOD USE OF TIME I DON'T THINK. OR DAYS AND DAYS AND DAYS MIGHT BE

OR WEEKS. >> I KNOW WE ARE AT THE BEGINNING OF A CYCLE BUT PART OF IT IS WE ARE BEING ASKED TO REFLECT ON WHAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING AND WHAT'S BEEN WORKING AND DECIDING ON WHAT NEW THINGS WE ARE ADOPTING, THINGS WE WANT TO ABANDON. THINGS WE WANT TO ADAPT OR SORT OF TWEAK, RIGHT? SO THAT'S ALL GOING TO BE PART OF IT TOO.

>> TRUSTEE SYLVESTER SAID SOMETHING THAT MADE ME THINK, LIKE WE DON'T TEST , WHEN WE TEST OUR GATE KIDS WE DON'T MEASURE THAT AS A SEPARATE GROUP BUT I WOULD ASSUME THAT WE WOULD CONTINUE TO INCLUDE THEM SO WE DON'T LOSE FOCUS BECAUSE NOT EVERYTHING IN IT WILL BE MAPPED ONTO THE LCAP

IS THAT CORRECT? >> I DON'T EXPECT OUR SCHOOL SITES TO STOP PAYING ATTENTION TO OUR STUDENTS. JUST BECAUSE .

OR DO YOU NEED MORE DISCUSSION?

>> I THINK JUST TO SUMMARIZE, WE WILL WORK TO MEET THE STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS WHICH WILL INCLUDE ACTIONS FOR UNDUPLICATED STUDENTS AS WELL AS THOSE IDENTIFIED IN THE LOWEST PERFORMANCE AREA AND WORK WITH THE BUDGET COMMITTEE KIND OF ON THAT WE WILL ALSO WORK TO LINK IN THE PLANS THE OTHER LIKE ALIGNED PLANS INTO THE LCAP WITH THE ACKNOWLEDGMENT HERE THAT WE ARE NOT INCLUDING EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN AND THAT IF IT IS JUST NOT EVERYTHING THAT'S IMPORTANT IN OUR DISTRICT. NOT ALL OF THE IMPORTANT THINGS HAVE TO BE INTO THE LCAP. RIGHT? AND THAT MANY OF THE ACTIONS THAT YOU KNOW WILL CONTINUE AND PERSIST FOR SURE.

BUT THAT NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE ALL IN THIS ONE DOCUMENT.

BECAUSE THE FRAMING OF THE LCAP IS DIFFERENT THAN IT WAS, IT'S NOW FRAMED AS A PERFORMANCE DOCUMENT AS OPPOSED TO A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR THE DISTRICT.

>> I UNDERSTAND WHY WE DID IT BACK WHEN WE DID IT. BUT, YOU KNOW WE ALWAYS SAY THESE ARE LIVING AND BREATHING DOCUMENTS AND IT GOT REFRAMED FOR US IN WAYS. AND I PERSONALLY AM COMMITTED TO MAKING SURE WE DON'T TAKE OUR EYES OFF THE STUDENTS THAT AREN'T IN THE LCAP. AND I KNOW YOU ALL JOIN ME IN THAT. INCLUDING YOU PEOPLE.

>> OKAY. WELL, NOW YES. >> I JUST HAD A QUESTION ABOUT PROCESS A LITTLE BIT I KNOW THAT TRUSTEE SYLVESTER TALKED ABOUT WHO IS WRITING THE DOCUMENT AND I MEAN I WILL

[03:15:07]

ALSO PUT OUT THERE THAT I THINK IT IS A LOT FOR ONE PERSON TO BE TAKING ON THE BRUNT OF EVERYTHING I HOPE YOU HAVE A TEAM THAT IS TAKING LIKE CHUNKS OF IT OKAY.

>> DEFINITELY. BUT I ALSO THINK TO MAY BE IN A CRAZY WAY THAT SOMETIMES WHEN YOU HAVE LIKE 10 DIFFERENT AUTHORS LIKE THE DOCUMENT CAN KIND OF GET A LITTLE MORE CUMBERSOME. SO I THINK AS WE START OUT THE NEXT THREE-YEAR CYCLE I MEAN AS WE WORK ON IT HE ALSO WILL WORK ON LIKE I THINK LIKE CLARITY OF LANGUAGE AND MAKING SURE THAT WE ARE BEING CONCISE AND CONSISTENT. IN OUR WRITING BECAUSE AT THE START OF THE THREE-YEAR AND THEN IT KIND OF JUST AT LEAST IN OUR EXPERIENCE IN THE PAST JUST BUILDS AND BUILDS AND BUILDS SO I WOULD RATHER START REALLY CLEARING. THIS FIRST YEAR BUT IT WILL BE A TEAM BUT WE WILL REALLY WORK TO WRITE THAT AS ONE VOICE.

>> SO IN TERMS OF TIMELINE , I KNOW WE WILL HAVE OUR GOAL PLANNING SESSION IN LIKE APRIL OR MAY. THAT WILL PROVIDE SOME INPUT INTO THE DOCUMENT AS WELL AS WHAT IS COMING OUT OF THE LCAP BUDGET COMMITTEE. AS WELL AS SURVEYS AND OTHER CONVERSATIONS WITH OTHER EDUCATIONAL PARTNERS AND THINGS LIKE THAT LIKE ALL OF THAT IS BEING WRAPPED IN. SO THE TIMELINE IS WE HAVE TO HAVE TWO BOARD MEETINGS TO APPROVE IT.

>> SO THAT PUTS US THE FIRST AND THIRD BOARD MEETINGS IN OR THE FIRST AND SECOND OR THE FIRST WEEK IN THE THIRD WEEK OF JUNE. WE HAVE TO HAVE IT APPROVED BEFORE JUNE 30. SO, THAT PUTS US IN THAT TIMEFRAME OF HAVING SOMETHING THAT NEEDS TO BE BROUGHT TO THE BOARD INTO THE COMMUNITY. FIRST BOARD MEETING IN JUNE. SOME YEARS WE HAVE GOT TO THE LAST OR SECOND BOARD MEETING IN MAY BUT I DON'T THINK WE ARE GOING TO

GET THERE THIS YEAR. >> THE BUDGET ALSO HAS TO BE DONE WITH IT. IT CAN'T JUST BE THE LCAP, THEY HAVE TO COME

TOGETHER. >> WE WILL HAVE SOME OF THE INFORMATION COMING TO US LIKE SAY BY OUR GOAL PLANNING MEETING LIKE LOOKING AT SURVEY RESULTS AND GETTING LIKE WHATEVER RECOMMENDATIONS OR INPUT FROM THE LCAP BUDGET COMMITTEE AND THINGS LIKE THAT THAT COULD KIND OF HELP. AND I DON'T KNOW THAT WE NEED ANYTHING FORMALLY FROM THE LCAP BUDGET COMMITTEE I KNOW IN THE PAST THERE'S BEEN A REPORT AT THE END OF THE YEAR WHICH DOESN'T NECESSARILY MAKE SENSE BECAUSE WE NEED THAT INFORMATION BEFORE , RIGHT? SO I DON'T KNOW, THERE IS TWO TRUSTEES ON THE COMMITTEE SO MAYBE WE DON'T NEED ANYTHING FORMAL, I DON'T KNOW.

>> ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT THE ANNUAL REPORT TO THE BOARD FROM THE BUDGET LCAP COMMITTEE? I THINK IT'S A NICE RECAP OF WHAT THE COMMITTEE HAS DONE. I PERSONALLY THINK THAT'S HELPFUL. BUT YOU'RE ALSO TALKING ABOUT OUR OWN GOAL SETTING SESSION. IS THAT CORRECT WHICH IS APRIL . OKAY.

>> SO I THINK THAT MIGHT, THERE MIGHT BE INFORMATION FROM THAT BUT I THINK WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE CURRENT GOALS THAT WERE DECIDED LAST SPRING. THEY ARE NOT GOING AWAY. GIVEN THE CALENDAR CONSTRAINTS. I DON'T THINK WE CAN WAIT. IS WHAT I AM

SAYING. >> I MEAN IT IS LOOKING AT OUR CURRENT GOALS AND IT'S AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ANY OF US TO ADD ANYTHING AND DISCUSS ANY OTHER PRIORITIES WE THINK ARE IMPORTANT. AND IT WILL HAPPEN BEFORE, IF THERE IS SOMETHING THAT JUMPS OUT THAT HAS TO BE ADDED. I DON'T THINK WE ARE GOING TO DO A MASSIVE OVERHAUL. APPARENTLY. MAYBE, I DON'T KNOW. BUT, IF WE ARE ADDING THINGS OR TAKING THINGS AWAY, THEN THAT'S AN ADJUSTMENT THAT CAN HAPPEN. WITHOUT TOO MUCH HEADACHE PROBABLY. I SAID HOPEFULLY. KNOWING THAT MR.

LOO HAS TO DO THE WORK. >> I WOULD JUST CAUTION THAT SO, ALONG WITH THE LCAP AS DR. MCLAUGHLIN SAID, EVERY

[03:20:04]

ACTION HAS TO BE REFLECTED IN THE BUDGET. AND IT'S NO EASY FEAT IF WE ARE GOING TO MAKE SUBSTANTIAL CHANGES. WE ARE, WHAT WE ARE WORKING ON ADOPTED NOW WE ARE STARTING NOW AND TO MAKE, WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH ANYTHING RELATED TO MAY REVISED AND THAT REALLY GIVES US ONLY FOUR DAYS BETWEEN MAY REVISE AND WHEN WE HAVE TO POST FOR OUR JUNE MEETING. SO, THE TIMELINES ARE VERY TIGHT AND THERE ARE A LOT OF TRICKLE-DOWN ACTIONS THAT HAVE TO HAPPEN BESIDES THE WRITTEN DOCUMENT ON THE BUDGETING SIDE. BECAUSE WE HAVE TO TRACK ALL THESE ACTIONS AND THEN REPORT ON THEM LATER ON.

>> SO THEN, IF WE WOULD SET JUST LOOKING AT WHEN SPRING BREAK FALLS, THE BEGINNING OF APRIL, SO THEN IF WE DID A GOALSETTING EARLIER IN APRIL, RIGHT AFTER SPRING BREAK, DOES

THAT HELP OR NOT REALLY? >> I AM HEARING THAT THERE MAY BE SOME REQUESTS FOR YOU KNOW, ADJUSTMENTS THAT ARE THERE.

>> I'M NOT NECESSARILY I DON'T KNOW THAT THERE'S GOING TO BE ADJUSTMENTS BUT I THINK IT'S JUST MY UNDERSTANDING OF THE PURPOSE OF THAT MEETING IS TO BE PROVIDING INPUT ON OUR GOALS FOR NEXT YEAR. WHICH IDEALLY WOULD BE POTENTIALLY BE

SEEN IN OUR LCAP DOCUMENT. >> IF THE LCAP DOCUMENT IS FOCUSING ON THE RED WE ALREADY KNOW WHAT IS IN THE RED. SO

OKAY. >> BUT, BUT, YOU ARE NOT WRONG ABOUT WHAT THE PURPOSE OF THE GOALSETTING OF THE MEETING IS. IN TERMS OF WHERE IT RELATES TO THE LCAP.

>> OKAY. BUT, MY UNDERSTANDING OF THE DISCUSSION WE HAVE HAD SO FAR IS I KNOW THERE IS OBVIOUSLY AN INCREASED FOCUS ON THESE RED INDICATOR GROUPS, BUT THAT'S NOT GOING TO BE THE ONLY PURPOSE OF THIS DOCUMENT.

>> ARE YOU SAYING THAT BECAUSE IT SEEMS TO ME GIVEN MAY BE THE NEW DIRECTION THAT OUR GOAL SETTING SESSION NOT EVERYTHING WE DISCUSSED WILL GO OR MAKE IT INTO THE LCAP WHERE IN THE PAST IT DID, BUT DEPENDING ON THE NEW PARAMETERS IT MAY OR

MAY NOT. CORRECT? >> THAT'S WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE

TO ME AS WELL. >> YES, YES. OKAY. SO LOOK FOR AN EMAIL FROM MRS. FELLMAN ABOUT SETTING DATES FOR GOALSETTING. OKAY. ANYBODY ELSE FINAL COMMENTS? THANK YOU, THANK YOU, FOR ALL THE WORK.

>> ABSOLUTELY? >> THIS MIGHT BE A MORE PERSONAL QUESTION BECAUSE I AM LESS FAMILIAR WITH THE NATURE OF THIS DOCUMENT AND THE WAY THAT IT WORKS IN THE DISTRICT AS A WHOLE BUT, GIVEN THAT WE ARE MORE OR LESS REFRAMING THE JURISDICTION OF THE LCAP AND IT'S NOT AS COMPREHENSIVE OR POTENTIALLY WON'T BE AS COMPREHENSIVE AS IT USED TO BE, WOULD IT BE IMPORTANT TO MAYBE REFRAME THE LCAP GOALS SLIGHTLY TO MENTION THAT WE ARE REFRAMING THE LCAP OR DO YOU THINK THAT THE GOALS BEING MAJOR JUST DISTRICT GOALS GIVEN THE FACT THAT THE LCAP IS NOT AS COMPREHENSIVE BUT THEY STILL FIT FINE? AND AGAIN WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THE EVENTUAL MAKEUP OF THE LCAP WILL BE, BUT YES.

>> IT MAY BECOME MORE COMPREHENSIVE. BECAUSE NOW WE ARE FOCUSED ON TWO SCHOOL LEVEL. REFERENCE WITHIN THE DOCUMENT SO, THE OTHER PIECE OF THIS IS LIKE YOU HAVE TO HAVE A DOCUMENT THAT IT'S NOT 1000 PAGES LONG THAT SOMEONE FROM THE COMMUNITY WHO WANTS TO PICK UP AND READ AND SAY IS THIS LIKE WHAT IS ALL THIS SO I DO THINK BEING FOCUSED ON OUR RED INDICATORS WITH AT LEAST GET US TO A DOCUMENT THAT SOMEONE CAN PICK UP AND SAY THIS IS THE REASON WHY THIS DOCUMENT EXISTS AND THEN THERE MAY BE SOME OTHER GAPS THAT ARE FILLED IN THERE BUT IT WILL BE I THINK A LARGER DOCUMENT BECAUSE THERE IS A NUMBER OF THINGS WE WILL HAVE TO ADDRESS THAT WE JUST DID NOT ADDRESS IN THE PREVIOUS 10 YEARS OF THE LCAP.

[03:25:01]

>> I THINK THAT'S A GREAT POINT THAT YOU MADE BECAUSE THAT WAS MY FIRST CONCERN TO BECAUSE I ACTUALLY THINK OUR GOAL OR OUR BROAD GOALS ARE BROADER THAN I WOULD'VE LIKED THEM TO BE LIKE IF I HAD BEEN HERE AT THE OUTSET I WOULD'VE PUSHED FOR A LITTLE BIT MORE SPECIFIC AND THAT'S WHAT I WAS TRYING TO GET WITH MY SUGGESTIONS ON THOSE TWO GOALS.

BUT IN OUR DISCUSSION TONIGHT AROUND WANTING TO START WITH THE RED INDICATORS AND GOING FROM THERE, WE ALSO TALKED ABOUT UNDERSTANDING THAT IN OUR CONTINUED DISCUSSIONS WITH THE BUDGET LCAP COMMITTEE OR WHATEVER, THERE MAY BE CERTAIN THINGS WHERE A LOT OF THINGS ARE SOME THINGS WE MAY STRIP OUT BUT CERTAIN THINGS THAT WOULD STAY IN. SO I AM STILL VIEWING THIS AS A COMPREHENSIVE STRATEGIC DOCUMENT.

>> I DON'T THINK THAT LIKE BY MAY BE STARTING FROM WITH THE FIRST STEP OF WANTING TO START WITH THOSE GAPS AND THOSE RED INDICATORS I DON'T THINK THAT MEANS THAT THAT IS ONLY WHAT WE ARE FOCUSED ON. UNLESS I MISHEARD OR DID NOT UNDERSTAND THE DISCUSSION THAT WE HAVE HAD TONIGHT.

>> I THINK WHAT WE ARE SAYING IS IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THAT IS ALL WE ARE FOCUSED ON, BUT THAT'S, WE ARE FOCUSING THE LCAP ON THAT GAP . AND WE ARE , WE HAVE DOCUMENTED IN ALL THE OTHER ALIGNED PLANS A LOT OF THESE THINGS THAT WE HAD TRADITIONALLY HELD IN THE LCAP, WE ARE NOT GOING TO DO IT THAT WAY THIS YEAR AND IT CAN'T BE BOTH FOCUSED AND COMPREHENSIVE AND I THINK THE STATE IS TELLING US IT HAS TO BE FOCUSED AND I THINK WE ARE ALL SORT OF YOU KNOW WE HAVE KIND OF COME AROUND TO THE IDEA THAT THAT COULD BE REALLY PRODUCTIVE FOR US GIVEN WHERE WE ARE AS A DISTRICT AND AS A REALLY HIGH-PERFORMING DISTRICT LESS FOCUSED ON WHERE WE KNOW WE NEED TO DO THE WORK. AND SEE HOW THIS GOES. YOU KNOW, PRESIDENT GOLDBERG SAYS WE ARE REEVALUATE EVERY YEAR. SO YOU

KNOW LET'S GIVE THIS A GO. >> AND MAINTAIN THE EFFORTS TO ENSURE WE CONTINUE TO BE HIGH-PERFORMING. EXCUSE ME A

HIGH-PERFORMING DISTRICT, 100%. >> WE CAN'T LOSE SIGHT OF THAT EITHER. NOR WOULD WE WANT TO.

[D. Board of Education - Approval of Amendments to Board Policy 1160 - Political Processes]

>> ALL RIGHT. MOVING ON TO ITEM 4D, BOARD OF EDUCATION APPROVAL OF AMENDMENTS TO BOARD POLICY 1160 POLITICAL

PROCESSES. DR. MCLAUGHLIN? >> THESE ARE GAMUT UPDATES FOR THE BOARD OF EDUCATION, AND ANY CHANGES TO THIS POLICY IS RECOMMENDED FROM CS PA. CSBA.

>> AND IT REFLECTS THAT. SO I DID HAVE A QUESTION ON THIS. I KNOW THAT THE POLICY ASKS US TO DEVELOP AN ADVOCACY ACTION PLAN. AND SO I WAS NOT SURE IF THE WAY THAT IT WAS WORDED WAS DO WE WANT IT WORDED THAT WAY? OR DID WE WANT TO MAKE IT MORE LIKE WE COULD YOU MAY CHOOSE TO DEVELOP. RIGHT? BECAUSE THE WAY I READ IT IT WAS LIKE YOU NEED TO DEVELOP THIS. AND YOU KNOW AND I DO THINK I MEAN THERE IS A LOT THERE, I BELIEVE I SHARED WHEN WE WERE SHARING ABOUT CSBA THAT ABOUT THE CONFERENCE IN DECEMBER THAT I DID ATTEND A WORKSHOP THAT TALKED ABOUT JUST THIS. AND SO THAT LEGISLATIVE ADVOCACY AND HAVING MORE OF A REGULAR KIND OF WAY OF APPROACHING LEGISLATIVE ACTIONS, WHETHER CERTAIN THINGS WE WANTED TO DO TOGETHER AS A BOARD AND SO THIS POLICY CONTAINS SOME LANGUAGE

AROUND THAT. >> THAT'S A REALLY GOOD CATCH BECAUSE I WOULD RATHER THAT BE A MAY THEN THE OTHER,

PERSONALLY. >> ANYBODY ELSE HAVE THOUGHTS

ON THAT? >> UNLESS IT'S A REQUIREMENT.

THINK A LAW OR AN EDUCATION CODE THERE, I WILL DOUBLE CHECK ON THAT. BUT THERE WOULD BE A NOTE UNDERNEATH THAT IF IT WAS

A LOT. >> IF IT'S NOT A LAW CAN WE CHANGE THAT TO ME? AND IF IT IS A LAW WE CAN LEAVE IT.

>> JUST TO BUILD OFF THAT BECAUSE THIS IS EXACTLY BRAND-NEW LANGUAGE, THERE WOULD DEFINITELY BE A CF TO A LAW OR

[03:30:07]

AN EDUCATION CODE I WOULD IMAGINE. BUT WE CAN STILL LOOK

[A. Future Board Topics / Activities]

INTO THAT. >> WE ARE NOW IN SECTION 5, ADJOURNMENT. FUTURE BOARD TOPICS? ANYBODY HAVE ANYTHING?

TRUSTEE GILL? >> SO LAST TIME WE MET WE HAD A REQUEST TO OPEN THE DISCUSSION AGAIN ABOUT THE DRESS CODE. AND I WAS REMISS IN NOT ASKING SOME CLARIFYING QUESTIONS AT THAT TIME. I REALLY APPRECIATED THAT MR. COURTNEY STOCKTON CAME AND SPOKE TO US AND HIS REQUEST WAS THAT WE DISCUSSED THE DRESS CODE POLICY AGAIN. AND THAT IN AND OF ITSELF IS A LITTLE BIT OF AN UNUSUAL REQUEST, WE DON'T TYPICALLY MAKE ROOM WITH ALL OF THE URGENT BUSINESS OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT THAT IS TIME SENSITIVE AND MOST CASES WE DON'T HAVE THE LUXURY OF JUST BRINGING UP POLICIES FOR DISCUSSION UNLESS THERE IS NEW LEGISLATION OR IT'S BEEN BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION THAT THERE SOMETHING WRONG AND SOMETHING'S NOT WORKING PROPERLY. AND IN THE CASE OF THE DRESS CODE BECAUSE THREE YEARS AGO WE DID DO A PRETTY COMPREHENSIVE REVISION TO THE POLICY WE DID IN FACT HAVE A DISCUSSION THAT SORT OF FULFILLED MR. STOCKTON'S REQUEST TO SEE HOW THINGS WERE GOING AND IT WAS MORE THAN JUST A DISCUSSION AT THE BOARD LEVEL. WE WENT OUT AND COLLECTED A LOT OF DATA. SO I AM , I DON'T THINK WE ARE JUSTIFIED GIVING THE CONVERSATIONS THAT WE JUST HAD THIS EVENING IN TWO WEEKS AGO ABOUT THE AMOUNT OF ACCOUNTABILITY WORK AND THE IMPORTANCE THAT WE AS A BOARD AND LEADERSHIP TEAMS ARE SPENDING OUR ATTENTION FOCUSED ON STUDENT LEARNING. I DON'T THINK IT'S JUSTIFIED THAT WE SPEND STAFF TIME TO GO OUT AND LOOK FOR OPINIONS ABOUT A POLICY WHEN WE HAVE NOT HAD INFORMATION COME FORWARD TO THE BOARD THAT SAYS THERE IS HARM BEING DONE LEARNING IS BEING INTERRUPTED. THERE IS SOME KIND OF PROBLEM. WITH THIS POLICY.

AND I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE COULD DISCUSS THE DRESS CODE FOREVER. BUT I DON'T THINK THAT WE SHOULD. DO THAT. I AM VERY VERY HAPPY TO CONSIDER ANYONE BRINGING FORWARD CONCERNS THAT LEARNING IS BEING INTERRUPTED AND HARM IS BEING DONE, THERE IS A SAFETY ISSUE THAT WE SOMEHOW OVERLOOKED AND THE POLICY AND IN THE SUBSEQUENT REVIEW OF THE POLICY AND THE DATA COLLECTED AND ALL OF THAT BUT ABSENT THAT I DON'T THINK WE HAVE TIME OR IT'S JUSTIFIED TO SPEND TIME IN SEARCH OF A PROBLEM THAT I'M NOT CONVINCED

EXISTS. >> TRUSTEE GORBACK?

>> I THINK THE ASPECT THAT MR. STOCKTON WAS BRINGING UP WAS NOT THE USUAL TARGETS OF DRESS CODE BUT THE SAFETY TARGETS.

YOU KNOW THERE'S A LOT OF TEACHERS THAT FELT WE HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING ABOUT SHOES SPECIFIC SHOES , THAT'S JUST ONE EXAMPLE THAT WE ARE ALLOWING. NOT THE HOW DO I SAY THIS? NOT THE ASPECT THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT, THE REVIEWING ASPECTS OR WHATEVER. BUT, THE SAFETY ASPECTS. AND I THINK THAT SOMETHING THAT WE COULD ADD INTO THE DRESS CODE THAT CURRENTLY EXISTS.

>> I WOULD ASK ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO BRING FORWARD OF THOSE SUGGESTIONS TO READ THE POLICY AND THE ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATION. WHICH DIRECTLY ADDRESSES SAFETY.

>> AGAIN, I AM OPEN TO HEARING BUT IF IT'S ALREADY BEEN ADDRESSED, I DON'T SEE THE NEED TO SPEND OUR TIME OR STAFF TIME AND MANY OF THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE , THAT HAVE BEEN BROUGHT FORWARD ARE IN THE LANGUAGE AND I JUST THINK IT HASN'T BEEN READ. THOROUGHLY.

>> IN ORDER TO NOT GET INTO AN ACTUAL DISCUSSION CURRENTLY.

[03:35:05]

SINCE IT'S NOT ON THE AGENDA, THE QUESTION IS SO YOU ARE ASKING IF I'M UNDERSTANDING TO RESEND THE IDEA THAT TO COME FORWARD AT AND AFTER SOME INVESTIGATION AND ADJUSTMENTS

POTENTIALLY. >> OR ARE YOU ASKING, ARE YOU ASKING US TO ALL AGREE TO RESEND IT? OR WOULD YOU LIKE US TO LIKE, SHORT OF THAT THAN WE WOULD HAVE TWO AGENDA IS IT ANYWAY AS A TOPIC TO TO TAKE IT OFF. SO, LIKE EITHER WAY.

WE HAVE TO PUT IT ON THE AGENDA TO TAKE IT OFF THE

AGENDA. >> TO HAVE THE DISCUSSION THAT

I DON'T WANT TO START NOW. >> RIGHT. YES.

>> THINK ABOUT THAT FOR A SECOND.

>> IDEALLY I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE IT OFF THE AGENDA, PENDING SPECIFIC REQUESTS THAT IDENTIFY ACTUAL PROBLEMS THAT NEED TO

BE FIXED. >> AND I'M ASKING NOT TO SPEND STAFF TIME SEARCHING FOR THOSE.

>> I MEAN IT IS SOMETHING THAT THEY ARE PLANNING ON DISCUSSING SO I PERSONALLY HAVE NOT HEARD OF A LOT OF SPECIFIC INSTANCES LIKE YOU MENTIONED BUT, WE WILL BE DISCUSSING IT AT THE NEXT MEETING SO I'M HOPING TO SEE WHETHER THERE ARE AT LEAST FROM THE STUDENT PERSPECTIVE PARTICULAR INSTANCES WE COULD DISCUSS. SO I DON'T KNOW HOW THAT HELPS YOU OR HURT YOU. BUT, IT IS SOMETHING WE ARE

TALKING ABOUT. >> THAT HELPS TREMENDOUSLY.

>> DO YOU HAVE A MIDDLE SCHOOL MEETING BEFORE YOUR NEXT

MEETING? >> WE DISCUSS IT , WE DISCUSSED IT AT THE LAST MEETING ACTUALLY AND I DON'T KNOW IF I'M

SUPPOSED TO. >> WE CAN'T TALK ABOUT THAT.

BUT I WANT TO KNOW. BECAUSE THAT INFORMATION WOULD BE BECAUSE, BECAUSE I HAVE HEARD A LOT FROM THOSE FOLKS. ABOUT THE DRESS CODE SO IF YOU COLLECTED SOME INFORMATION

ALREADY. THAT'S GREAT. >> I GUESS THE QUESTION IS DO WE WANT TO REMOVE IT OR DO WE WANT TO KEEP MOVING?

>> WHERE IT STAYS ON AND YOU AND I FIGURE OUT WHAT THE BEST APPROACH IS AS A SUPERINTENDENT AND PRESIDENT. FOR RIGHT NOW.

SECOND? I LIKE THE SECOND ONE I GUESS. JUST KEEPS US , IT'S NOT POWER, IT'S I DON'T WANT TO HAVE A BROWN ACT VIOLATION.

SO, AWESOME. ANYBODY ELSE HAVE A FUTURE TOPIC?

>> I THOUGHT OF ONE AS THEY WERE PRESENTING, WE HAVE NOT HEARD A LOT ABOUT THE DATA ACADEMY. AND I THINK THAT ANYTIME WE GET TO BUILD COHORTS OF KIDS THAT REALLY SUPPORT BUILDING COMMUNITY AND LEARNING WOULD BE GOOD FOR US AND THE COMMUNITY TO HEAR ABOUT. OKAY, CONSENSUS, YES.

OKAY. AWESOME. ANYBODY ELSE?
