[2.4 Spotlight Presentation: Stop the Sewage Club]

STOP THE SEWAGE CLUB.

I'D LIKE TO INVITE UP DANNY VEINGRAD AND SEAN WILBUR.

GOOD AFTERNOON, SUPERINTENDENT MUELLER, SCHOOL BOARD AND GUESTS.

I'M PROUD TO BE SPEAKING BEFORE YOU TODAY AS THE PROUD VICE PRESIDENT AND CO-FOUNDER OF THE CORONADO HIGH SCHOOL STOP THE SEWAGE CLUB.

WE'RE HERE TO ADVOCATE FOR THE SCHOOL BOARD AND THE COMMUNITY TO STAND UP AGAINST THE SEWAGE AS IT CONTINUES TO UPROOT THE LIVES OF OVER 2800 CUSD STUDENTS.

THE STOP THE SEWAGE CLUB WAS FOUNDED LAST SUMMER WITH THE GOAL TO EMPOWER OUR STUDENTS WITH OTHER OVER 30 MEMBERS, THE CLUB MEETS MONTHLY TO DISCUSS THE NEXT STEPS IN TACKLING THIS EVER PRESENT CRISIS IN OUR COMMUNITY.

THE CLUB GIVES STUDENTS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ACTIVISM WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY AND TOWN, WHICH ALLOWS THEM TO GAIN USEFUL EXPERIENCE AS THEY BECOME GLOBAL CITIZENS INTO THEIR COLLEGE CAREER AND BEYOND.

TO DATE, OUR CLUB HAS WORKED TO RAISE AWARENESS TO COMMUNITY EVENTS BY ORGANIZING MULTIPLE EVENTS AND MEETINGS, ALONG WITH WORKING CLOSELY WITH THE COMMUNITY WIDE STOP THE SEWAGE CLUB, WHICH HAS RECENTLY SENT ADVOCATES TO THE CAPITOL TO ADVOCATE FOR THIS CRISIS THAT HAS BEEN IMPACTING US.

RETURNING TO THE ORIGINAL PURPOSE OF US SPEAKING BEFORE YOU TODAY, WE URGE YOU TO STAND BEHIND YOUR STUDENTS.

THE CUSD CLASSROOM CLOSEST TO THE OCEAN IS ONLY 600FT AWAY FROM THIS TOXIC SEA MIST, AND IT FLOWS INTO EACH AND EVERY CLASSROOM WITHIN YOUR DISTRICT.

WE NEED TO SEE YOUR LEADERSHIP BY TAKING A STANCE AGAINST THIS RAMPANT ENVIRONMENTAL CRISIS AFFECTING EVERYONE IN OUR TOWN, INCLUDING THE STUDENTS YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO SERVE.

WE, THE CORONADO HIGH SCHOOL STOP THE SEWAGE CLUB STRONGLY URGE YOU TO WRITE LETTERS ALONG WITH OUR COMMUNITY TO OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

WE HAVE FAILED TO SEE ACTION ON THIS CRISIS, AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO SEE ENDLESS INACTION WITHOUT COMMUNITY MEMBERS AND BOARD MEMBERS LIKE YOU SPEAKING UP.

THANK YOU. CAN WE PLAY THE VIDEO, PLEASE? THANK YOU. [VIDEO] MY NAME IS DYLAN, AND I WANT THE SEWAGE TO STOP BECAUSE THE OCEAN IS A PART OF MY CORONADO COMMUNITY.

MY NAME IS MYLA UENO, AND I WANT THE SEWAGE TO STOP BECAUSE I LOVE THE OCEAN LIFE AND I WANT TO PROTECT IT.

MY NAME IS ERICA HASLEM, AND I NEED SEWAGE TO STOP BECAUSE IT IS NEGATIVELY AFFECTING OUR SEA LIFE EVERY DAY FROM SEWAGE.

MY NAME IS QUINN RUBY, AND I WANT TO STOP THE SEWAGE BECAUSE IT IS HARMFUL TO WILDLIFE AND STOPS PEOPLE FROM ENJOYING THE OCEAN.

HI, MY NAME IS OSCAR AND I DON'T LIKE THE SEWAGE BECAUSE IT IS BAD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.

HI, MY NAME IS TATUM AND I WANT TO STOP THE SEWAGE BECAUSE IT KEEPS PEOPLE OUT OF THE OCEAN.

MY NAME IS DOMINIC PETERS AND I WANT THE BEACHES TO BE CLEAN BECAUSE I LIKE TO SWIM IN THE WATER.

MY NAME IS KEHLANI LEONARD, AND I WANT THE SEWAGE TO STOP BECAUSE MY FAMILY AND I ENJOY WATER SPORTS LIKE SNORKELING AND HAVING SEWAGE IN THE WATER PREVENTS US FROM DOING THAT.

HI, MY NAME IS WYATT RIGBY.

I WANT TO STOP THE SEWAGE BECAUSE IT INHIBITS MY LIFEGUARDING AND SURF INSTRUCTING.

GOOD AFTERNOON, SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS, SUPERINTENDENT MUELLER AND GUESTS.

MY NAME IS DANNY VEINGRAD, AND I'M THE FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT OF THE CORONADO HIGH SCHOOL STOP THE SEWAGE CLUB.

AND AS OUR CLUB'S VICE PRESIDENT PREVIOUSLY STATED, WE ARE HERE TODAY TO ASK FOR THE SCHOOL BOARD'S ASSISTANCE AND ADVOCACY FOR THE SEWAGE CRISIS.

EVER SINCE I WAS A LITTLE KID, I'VE ALWAYS ENJOYED THE BEACH.

NOW, NO ONE FROM TIJUANA TO HERE IN CORONADO CAN ENTER WITHOUT THE RISK OR FEAR OF GETTING SICK.

AND SO OVER THE LAST FIVE YEARS, OVER 100 BILLION GALLONS NOW HAVE SPILLED INTO THE TIJUANA RIVER.

AND THE MOST SOUTHERN BEACH IN SAN DIEGO HAS BEEN CLOSED FOR OVER 800 DAYS.

NOW, AS SUMMER APPROACHES AGAIN, IT IS ONLY SEEMING MORE CERTAIN, LIKE LAST SUMMER, THAT THE BEACHES WILL BE CLOSED FOR MONTHS ON END.

SO WITH SOME SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCES, LAST SPRING I BEGAN THE PROCESS OF CREATING THIS CLUB TO ENABLE MYSELF AND OTHER STUDENTS TO HAVE AN OUTLET FOR WORKING TOWARDS A CLEANER ENVIRONMENT. AND I'D ESPECIALLY LIKE TO THANK LAURA SINTON AND ABBY HARCHEY FOR HELPING GUIDE ME THROUGH THIS PROCESS.

AND SO SEAN'S SUMMED IT UP, BUT HERE'S A LITTLE BIT MORE.

SINCE OUR CLUB'S CREATION, WE'VE SUPPORTED SOLUTIONS FOR CHANGE AND PARTICIPATED IN MANY EVENTS TO ELEVATE OUR VOICES.

WE'VE BEEN TO MEETINGS, SPOKEN AT THE CALIFORNIA COASTAL COMMISSION, PARTICIPATED IN PROTESTS, ORGANIZED A CANDLELIGHT GATHERING CEREMONY, DONE BEACH CLEANUPS IN CONJUNCTION WITH OTHER GROUPS.

HEARD FROM LOCAL REPRESENTATIVES, AND MUCH MORE.

SO THIS CRISIS PROFOUNDLY AFFECTS ALL THE STUDENTS AT CUSD SCHOOLS.

THE SEWAGE JEOPARDIZES THE JOBS THE STUDENTS MIGHT HAVE OVER THE SUMMER.

AND AS SEAN SAID EARLIER, STUDIES NOW SHOW THAT AIRBORNE POLLUTANTS CAN BE IN THE AIR, WHICH WE BREATHE.

AND SO ALL THE STUDENTS AND FACULTY MEMBER AT ALL POINTS OF THE DAY BREATHE IN THIS AIR THAT IS POLLUTED.

SO NOW AGAIN, WITH SPRING BREAK JUST AROUND THE CORNER, IT IS SADDENING TO SEE BEACH CLOSURE AFTER BEACH CLOSURE AND THE STUDENTS AT CUSD DESERVE BETTER THAN A POLLUTED

[00:10:07]

ENVIRONMENT. SO WITH ALL THIS SAID, I URGE THE BOARD TODAY TO WRITE A FORMAL STATEMENT AND LETTERS TO ELECTED OFFICIALS REGARDING THE CRISIS.

THE SEWAGE ISSUE IS A LARGE BIPARTISAN ISSUE, AND THE ONLY WAY IT WILL EVER BE SOLVED WITH ALL OF ITS MOVING PARTS IS IF WE ALL WORK TOGETHER TO WORK TOWARDS A SOLUTION.

I SINCERELY HOPE THAT YOU ALL TAKE THIS REQUEST INTO CONSIDERATION.

AND BEFORE I PART, I'D LIKE TO INFORM EVERYONE THAT OUR CLUB IS PLANNING A BEACH PROTEST ON THURSDAY, MARCH 28TH AT 4 P.M.

AFTER SCHOOL.

SO I HOPE YOU ALL CAN JOIN US AND IT WOULD BE A GREAT ADDITION TO THE RALLY, SO THANK YOU.

YOU WANNA SAY SOMETHING? I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR FOR YOUR PRESENTATION AND YOUR ADVOCACY ON BEHALF OF THE COMMUNITY.

I DO THINK IT'S APPROPRIATE FOR US TO ADVOCATE FOR THAT.

I SPOKE AT LENGTH THE LAST MEETING ABOUT ABOUT THIS, BUT MY THERE'S A I BELIEVE THERE'S AN EXCEPTION TO EVERY RULE, BUT THAT ARGUMENT DIDN'T NECESSARILY CARRY THE THERE CARRY THE DAY. SO I LOOK FORWARD TO LETTING MY PERSONAL ADVOCACY KNOWN AS AS WE GO FORWARD.

SO THANK YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE PRESENTATION, FOR BRINGING AWARENESS TO THIS MATTER AND FOR YOUR CIVIC ENGAGEMENT ON THIS VERY IMPORTANT SUBJECT.

FIRST, I HOPE YOU BOTH ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE SEAL OF CIVIC ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM AND WORKING TOWARDS THAT PROCESS, BECAUSE THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE DOING HERE, AND YOU'RE MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR COMMUNITY AND OUR COMMUNITY.

I DID GO BACK AND LOOK, AND THE PREVIOUS BOARD THAT WAS HERE IN 2020 DID WRITE AN INCREDIBLY COMPELLING LETTER TO GOVERNOR NEWSOM.

IT WAS SIGNED BY ALL FIVE BOARD MEMBERS ABOUT THE COVID SCHOOL CLOSURES, ADVOCATING TO REOPEN SCHOOLS.

AND SO WE CAN ABSOLUTELY COPY THAT MODEL.

THERE'S THERE'S NOTHING PREVENTING US FROM DOING THAT.

AND I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THE LEAD ON DRAFTING SOMETHING TO CIRCULATE AMONGST MY FELLOW TRUSTEES TO SEND TO STATE AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENTS.

ALSO, I'VE BEEN PARTICIPATING IN LEGISLATIVE ACTION WEEK.

I'VE BEEN I'LL GIVE YOU UPDATES ON OTHER THINGS AT THE END OF MY COMMENTS, BUT THIS IS AN ITEM THAT I BROUGHT UP WITH OUR STATE SENATORS YESTERDAY SPEAKING WITH ASSEMBLY MEMBERS AND STATE SENATORS.

AND WHEN TRUSTEE PALACIOS-PETERS AND I GO TO WASHINGTON, D.C., IN APRIL, WE WILL BE BRINGING THAT UP THERE AS WELL ON YOUR BEHALF, AND WE'LL BE USING YOUR MAYBE WE COULD EVEN USE YOUR VIDEO.

BUT WE'LL ABSOLUTELY BE USING YOUR EXAMPLE TO EXPLAIN WHY THIS IS SO IMPORTANT.

SO THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU'RE DOING.

AND WE WILL KEEP WORKING TOGETHER ON THIS.

THANK YOU, DANNY AND SEAN, FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP IN THIS EFFORT AND IN AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE ALL STUDENT VOICES HEARD.

WAS WONDERING IF THERE IS A WAY THAT EITHER A BOARD MEMBER CAN WORK WITH THE CLUB, TO WORK WITH STUDENTS AT THE ELEMENTARY LEVEL AND THE MIDDLE SCHOOL LEVEL TO CRAFT LETTERS AS WELL THAT WE CAN SEND.

GREAT PRESENTATION.

THE THE CONCERN I HAVE, I THINK WE ALL KNOW THE PROBLEM, RIGHT? WE HAVE SEWAGE RUNNING NORTH IN THE FROM THE TIJUANA RIVER.

AND WE ALSO HAVE PUNTA BANDERA SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT IN MEXICO THAT WAS CLOSED.

WHAT'S THE WHAT'S THE PLAN SOLUTION TO FIX THAT? ARE WE, WE'RE GOING TO RAISE TAXES OR WE'RE GOING TO LEVERAGE THE FREE TRADE AGREEMENT.

WHAT? WHERE'S THE PROPOSAL? SO THAT THAT'S MY CONCERN.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS.

JUST IN THE INTEREST OF BREVITY, I AGREE WITH TRUSTEE ANTRIM AND WE WILL BE GOING TO DC.

WE WILL BE BRINGING THIS ISSUE TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, AND I DO SUPPORT US DOING A LETTER AS WELL.

SO HOPEFULLY WE CAN TALK ABOUT THAT LATER ON AS WELL.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. EXCELLENT PRESENTATION.

I'M GOING TO ADD IN THE CORONADO SCHOOLS FOUNDATION TRUSTEES, MICHELLE GILMORE, TO COME UP IN OPEN SESSION AND PRESENT ABOUT THE TELETHON.

THANK YOU. PRESIDENT ALEXIA PETERS, KARL MUELLER, SUPERINTENDENT AND TRUSTEES, THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.

IT'S NICE TO SEE YOU ALL.

IT WAS SO NICE OF YOU TO HAVE A BOARD MEETING ON TODAY, THE DAY OF GIVING.

SO TODAY IS THE CSF DAY OF GIVING, ALSO KNOWN AS THE CSF TELETHON FOR THE LAST 37 YEARS.

AND WE'VE ENJOYED REBRANDING AND REPURPOSING A LOT OF THE FUN MATERIALS THAT WE'VE HAD OVER THE YEARS.

IN ORDER TO PROVIDE A 24 HOUR DAY OF GIVING.

SO I WILL NOT TAKE VERY MUCH OF YOUR TIME.

[00:15:01]

BUT I DO WANT TO SAY THIS FOR THE LAST FEW WEEKS, WE HAVE BEEN IN THE CLASSROOM DOING BEHIND THE SCENES VIDEO FOOTAGE AND SEEING WHAT THE CLASSES THAT ARE FUNDED THROUGH CSF DONATIONS TO CSF ARE DOING IN THE CLASSROOMS AT EACH CAMPUS.

AND IT IS REMARKABLE.

AND I'VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR SEVEN YEARS TOTAL AS EITHER A VOLUNTEER OR IN THIS ROLE, AND I'M BLOWN AWAY EVERY YEAR.

THE CLASSROOMS, THE TEACHERS AND THE TECHNOLOGY AND THE TOOLS ARE EXCEPTIONAL.

AND SO I'M SO PROUD TO BE ABLE TO STAND UP HERE, AND ONE THING THAT WE ALL NOTICED IN OUR OFFICE, AND AS WE'VE BEEN SHARING VIDEO CONTENT AND HOPEFULLY YOU'VE ALL GOTTEN TEXTS FROM ME TODAY, I'M SURE YOU HAVE.

ONE THING WE'VE NOTICED IS THAT WHAT OUR CLASSES DO IS BRING KIDS TOGETHER, AND THAT IS AMAZING AND ESSENTIAL.

AND WHAT BETTER MESSAGE FOR US TO BE SENDING THROUGH THE ARTS? I MEAN, LOOK AT THESE TALENTED KIDS, CSF FUNDS, THAT CLASS THAT YOU JUST SAW THOSE KIDS PERFORMING AND HOW WHAT JOY THEY HAD TOGETHER PERFORMING AS THEY WALKED IN AND THEY WERE TALKING TO EACH OTHER.

AND THAT IS A COMMON THEME AROUND EVERY VIDEO AND EVERY CLASSROOM THAT WE SAW.

THE ROBOTICS TABLE, EVERYONE'S RIGHT OVER IT, AND THEY'RE WORKING ON THE TOOLS, AND THEY'RE ENGAGED WITH EACH OTHER AND THEY'RE BRINGING THESE KIDS TOGETHER, AND SOME OF THEM ARE BRAND NEW TO CORONADO SOME OF THEM HAVE BEEN IN THREE DIFFERENT SCHOOLS IN THE LAST TWO YEARS, AND THEY'RE BRAND NEW, AND THEY WALK IN AND THEY IMMEDIATELY HAVE A GROUP OF FRIENDS BECAUSE THEY'RE ENGAGED IN ART AND SCIENCE AND MUSIC AND TECHNOLOGY.

AND SO I SAY WE ALL COME TOGETHER AND KEEP CELEBRATING AND KEEP DONATING ON THE TODAY CSF DAY OF GIVING.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MISS GILMORE.

[3. CONSOLIDATED MOTION FOR CONSENT CALENDAR]

MOVING ON TO ITEM THREE, CONSOLIDATE MOTION FOR CONSENT CALENDAR.

DO I HAVE A MOTION? MOTION TO APPROVE. SECOND.

YOU KNOW, OR DO WE ASK FOR PUBLIC? AT THIS TIME, DO WE HAVE ANY PUBLIC COMMENT ON ITEM THREE? OKAY, CALL FOR THE VOTE, PLEASE.

THANK YOU. MOTION PASSES.

MOVING ON TO ITEM 4.1, AUTHORIZE A POSITIVE DISTRICT CERTIFICATION OF THE SECOND INTERIM BUDGET FOR THE PERIOD ENDING JANUARY 31ST, 2024.

[4.1 Authorize a Positive District Certification of the Second Interim Budget for the Period Ending January 31, 2024]

SUPERINTENDENT MUELLER. THANK YOU, PRESIDENT PALACIOS-PETERS.

I'D LIKE TO ASK DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT DONNIE SALAMANCA.

UP TO PRESENT ACTION ITEM 4.1, MR. SALAMANCA.

GOOD EVENING TRUSTEE SUPERINTENDENT MUELLER AND MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY.

THANKS FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE THE DISTRICT'S SECOND INTERIM BUDGET REPORT WITH YOU THIS EVENING.

THANK YOU, MR. MCELLIGOTT. AGAIN, THE SECOND INTERIM BUDGET UPDATE IS SUPPORTED IN LARGE PART BY DIRECTOR OF FISCAL SERVICES, ANG√ČLICA PAREDES. SO IT WOULD BE RIGHT FOR ME TO START MY PRESENTATION BY THANKING HER FOR HER EFFORTS AND SUPPORT THROUGH THIS VERY DIFFICULT PROCESS.

AS ALWAYS, I WILL MAKE A PLUG TO ASK YOU TO VISIT THE DISTRICT'S BUSINESS SERVICES WEBSITE.

ANYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW, AND A LOT OF THINGS YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT ARE ON THE DISTRICT'S WEBSITE.

EVERY FINANCIAL STATEMENT, BUDGET, INTERIM EXTERNAL AUDIT REPORT IS LISTED THERE ON THE WEBSITE.

IT GOES AS FAR BACK AS I BELIEVE 2010, IF NOT OLDER.

OKAY, YOU'VE SEEN THIS SLIDE BEFORE.

THIS IS THE BUDGET CYCLE.

MUCH OF WHAT WE DO AS A DISTRICT IS IN DIRECT CORRELATION TO WHAT HAPPENS AT THE STATE LEVEL.

THE GOVERNOR RECENTLY PRESENTED HIS PROPOSED BUDGET FOR THE UPCOMING SCHOOL YEAR, 24-25.

AND IT GIVES US AN OPPORTUNITY TO UPDATE OUR BUDGET PROJECTIONS FOR THE CURRENT YEAR, AS WELL AS THE TWO OUT YEARS.

AS YOU KNOW, THE STATE REQUIRES US TO BUDGET IN THE CURRENT YEAR AS WELL AS ONE YEAR OR TWO YEARS OUT.

SO WE HAVE UPDATED OUR BUDGET PROJECTIONS, MULTI-YEAR PROJECTIONS TO INCORPORATE THE GOVERNOR'S PROPOSED BUDGET.

I'M GOING TO SOUND LIKE A BROKEN RECORD TONIGHT, BUT WE'VE BEEN HAVING A LOT OF CONVERSATIONS AMONGST MY PEER GROUP HERE IN THE DISTRICT AND THROUGHOUT THE STATE.

MUCH OF WHAT HAPPENS IN BUDGET DEVELOPMENT IS A SERIES OF THINGS HAPPENING TO US AS A SCHOOL DISTRICT.

[00:20:03]

THE STATE DOES SOMETHING AND THEN WE HAVE TO REACT.

THEY CHANGE OUR BUDGET, AND THEN WE HAVE TO REACT AND ADJUST ACCORDINGLY.

AND WE DON'T HAVE A WHOLE LOT OF CONTROL IN TERMS OF WHAT WE'RE ALLOWED TO DO, AND MUCH OF THAT IS DIRECTED BY THE STATE.

CONSISTENT WITH PAST PRESENTATIONS, WE SPENT A LITTLE BIT OF TIME JUST PROVIDING AN UPDATE ON SOME OF THE CHANGES SINCE WE LAST SHARED THE CURRENT YEAR BUDGET WITH YOU.

FIRST INTERIM WAS SHARED WITH YOU IN DECEMBER OF 23, AND WE HAVE VERY MINOR UPDATES SINCE THEN TO SHARE WITH YOU, AS OF MARCH OF 2024, VERY MINOR DOWNWARD ADJUSTMENTS TO REVENUE WITH REGARD TO LCFF REVENUES AND FEDERAL REVENUES.

WE HAVE ONE OF OUR FUNDING SOURCES, IMPACT AID, FUNDED TO SUPPORT SPECIAL STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS.

THAT'S HANDLED ON A CASH BASIS.

SO WE REALLY DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH WE ANTICIPATE.

EACH YEAR WE KIND OF JUST LOOK AT PAST YEARS AS AN AVERAGE AND THE STATE APPROPRIATES HOWEVER MUCH THEY WANT TO THOSE SERVICES, AND IT'S TREATED ON A CASH BASIS.

SO WE'LL ADJUST FOR THAT ANNUALLY THROUGHOUT THE YEAR AS THOSE PAYMENTS COME IN.

THAT REPRESENTS A DOWNWARD ADJUSTMENT OF ABOUT $250,000 IN OUR FEDERAL REVENUES.

ADDITIONALLY, WE HAVE ACCESS TO STATE REVENUES.

AND YOU'LL SEE THAT WE ADJUSTED ONE OF THOSE UP OR A NUMBER OF THEM UPWARD.

SO WE'RE EXPECTING TO SEE AN INCREASE OF REVENUES OF ABOUT $80,000.

AGAIN, THOSE ARE AWARDS THAT ARE ADJUSTED AS THE STATE UPDATES THEIR FINANCIALS.

LOCAL, OTHER LOCAL REVENUE IS ALSO UPDATED BASED OFF OF CURRENT PROJECTIONS.

AS WE SEE IT THROUGH THE END OF THIS FISCAL YEAR.

NOW, LOOKING AT EXPENDITURES WE SEE SOME DOWNWARD ADJUSTMENT IN CERTIFICATED SALARIES.

I'VE GOT TICK MARKS AT THE BOTTOM, BUT JUST AS AN OVERVIEW WE RECEIVED, WE WERE FORTUNATE TO RECEIVE A DODEA GRANT DURING THE LAST DURING THIS FISCAL YEAR AND THROUGH THE RESULT OF HIRING, WE WERE ABLE TO ACTUALLY HIRE INTERNAL CANDIDATES AND DO SOME SHIFTING.

SO WE ACTUALLY REALIZED SOME PROJECTED BUDGET SAVINGS CLASSIFIED SALARIES ARE INCREASING.

THAT'S IN DIRECT NEED TO HIRE ADDITIONAL STAFF TO SUPPORT SPECIFIC STUDENT NEEDS.

HEALTH AND WELFARE CENSUS HAS SHIFTED, SO AS EMPLOYEES COME AND GO SOME OF THEM COME WITH FAMILY, SOME OF THEM ARE SINGLE.

AND SO WE TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ADJUST THIS, AS THE SCHOOL YEAR GOES ON, YOU'LL SEE DOWNWARD ADJUSTMENTS TO EXPENDITURES IN BOOKS AND SUPPLIES, AS WELL AS SERVICES AND OTHER OPERATING.

THOSE ARE DUE IN LARGE PART TO OUR ABILITY TO DEFER SPENDING IN LIGHT OF THE GOVERNOR'S BUDGET, WE LOOKED AT OUR BUDGET AND SAID, OKAY, WHAT CAN, WHAT MUST WE SPEND THIS YEAR IN TERMS OF SOME OF THOSE FEDERAL SOURCES? AND HOW CAN WE KIND OF TRIM THAT DOWN AND SPEND A LITTLE BIT EACH YEAR INSTEAD OF SPENDING IT ALL THIS YEAR? THOSE THAT IS THE RESULT OF THOSE EFFORTS.

AND WE SEE A DOWNWARD ADJUSTMENT OF $150,000 FOR CAPITAL OUTLAY.

THAT'S IN DIRECT RELATION TO THE KITCHEN INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT.

AS YOU KNOW, YOU APPROVED WE RECEIVED MONIES AS A DISTRICT THAT FULLY PAY FOR THE PROJECT.

YOU APPROVED AN AWARD TO A CONTRACTOR IN JANUARY.

THE WORK IS NOT GOING TO BE COMPLETED UNTIL JULY.

AND SO WE WON'T RECOGNIZE THOSE EXPENDITURES UNTIL AFTER THIS FISCAL YEAR.

SO IT'S REALLY JUST A TIMING DIFFERENCE.

A LOT OF ACCOUNTING MUMBO JUMBO.

I HOPE I DIDN'T LOSE YOU THERE.

SO, WE SAW DOWNWARD ADJUSTMENT OF $150,000 IN THAT EXPENDITURE CATEGORY.

OKAY, NOW TO THE REAL MEAT OF THE PRESENTATION.

IN JANUARY, WE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THE GOVERNOR'S INITIAL PROPOSALS FOR THE 2425 FISCAL YEAR.

AGAIN, MORE THINGS HAPPENING AT THE STATE LEVEL AND TRICKLING DOWN TO US AS A DISTRICT.

THIS IS A GENERAL TIMELINE OF SOME OF THE MAJOR MILESTONES THAT WE HAVE TO ADHERE TO WITHIN THE NEXT SIX MONTHS.

JANUARY WAS WHEN WE RECEIVED THE GOVERNOR'S BUDGET.

AT THE BOTTOM ARE ALL OF THE BUDGETARY THINGS.

MAY 14TH IS WHEN WE EXPECT TO HEAR THE MAY REVISION, AND THE STATE IS REQUIRED TO ENACT THEIR BUDGET PRIOR TO JULY 1ST.

IF YOU LOOK ABOVE THE LINE, THOSE ARE THINGS THAT ARE REQUIRED BY STATUTE.

WE, IN ORDER TO DEVELOP OUR BUDGET, HAVE TO DO SOME THINGS A LITTLE BIT OUT OF ORDER.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE BOTTOM, THE STATE ISN'T GOING TO TELL US HOW MUCH WE'RE GOING TO RECEIVE UNTIL JULY 1ST.

AND YET WE HAVE TO MAKE DECISIONS ON STAFFING IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TIMELINES UP THERE.

MARCH 15TH NOTICE.

AS YOU KNOW, THE BOARD TOOK ACTION TWO WEEKS AGO TO FOR A PRELIMINARY ISSUE, PRELIMINARY PRELIMINARY LAYOFF NOTICES.

THOSE ITEMS WILL HAVE TO BE ACTED IN FINALITY BY MAY, AGAIN BEFORE THE STATE ADOPTS THEIR FINAL STATE.

SO EVEN BEFORE WE KNOW WHAT OUR REVENUES ARE GOING TO BE.

OKAY. SO FROM A VERY HIGH LEVEL, THE WHAT DID WE HEAR AT THE GOVERNOR'S PROPOSED BUDGET?

[00:25:05]

IT DEPENDS WHO YOU ASK.

THE GOVERNOR'S UNDER THE GOVERNOR'S PROPOSAL.

THEY'RE PROJECTING A $38 BILLION BUDGET GAP, NO CUTS TO K-12 EDUCATION.

AND WHAT WHAT IS IT THEY'RE NOTING IS AN UNPRECEDENTED STOP GAP APPROACH? ESSENTIALLY, THEY'RE THE GOVERNOR'S PROPOSING TO TAKE LOANS AGAINST FUTURE REVENUES.

SO WHAT WE'RE SEEING IS WE DON'T HAVE THE REVENUES.

IT'S A LITTLE BIT OF CREATIVE FINANCING, AND IT'S GETTING A LOT OF FOLKS CONCERNED.

IN ADDITION, HE'S PROPOSING TO PULL $18.8 BILLION OUT OF THE RAINY DAY FUND.

IN LOCAL TERMS, THAT WOULD BE REFERRED TO AS OUR RESERVE.

IF YOU ASK THE LEGISLATIVE ANALYST'S OFFICE, THEY'RE PROJECTING BUDGET GAPS MUCH CLOSER TO 58 TO 73 BILLION.

AND THEY'RE ANTICIPATING THIS CONTINUED I GUESS, STRUGGLE IN STATE REVENUES INTO THE 25, 26 FISCAL YEAR.

THEY'RE RECOMMENDING A LITTLE BIT MORE OF A CONSERVATIVE APPROACH TO REDUCE ONE TIME AND TEMPORARY SPENDING, AS OPPOSED TO KIND OF HEDGING AGAINST FUTURE FUNDING.

BASED OFF OF, YOU KNOW, WE GOT THE GOVERNOR'S BUDGET IN JANUARY.

WE'VE SEEN A COUPLE MONTHS MORE REVENUE PROJECTIONS.

IT'S TRENDING MUCH CLOSER TO THE LEGISLATIVE ANALYST'S OFFICE.

A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THE GOVERNOR'S PROP 98 BUDGET MANEUVER.

AGAIN, WHILE WE APPRECIATE THE GOVERNOR'S WANTING TO CUT KEEP CUTS AWAY FROM K-12 EDUCATION.

I'M A LITTLE TORN, HONESTLY, AS A, AS A PROFESSIONAL AS FROM AN ACCOUNTING STANDPOINT AND FROM A FISCAL CONSERVATIVE, IT SEEMS LIKE WE SHOULD JUST DEAL WITH THE ISSUE AT THE MOMENT RATHER THAN HEDGING OUR BETS, TAKING LOANS AGAINST THE FUTURE, AND DRAINING OUR SAVINGS.

BUT ON BEHALF OF K-12 EDUCATION, WE APPLAUD HIS EFFORTS TO KEEP US WHOLE.

IT'S BEEN A ROUGH COUPLE OF YEARS, AND CUTS TO EDUCATION ARE NEVER GOOD.

WITH THAT SAID, THE LAO ISSUED A VERY SPECIFIC RESPONSE, CALLING IT PROBLEMATIC.

AND WORSENING OUT YOUR DEFICITS, WHICH REQUIRE MORE DIFFICULT DECISIONS IN THE FUTURE.

I SHARE THIS INFORMATION BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT OF INFORMATION THAT WE HAVE TO DIGEST AS A SCHOOL DISTRICT, AND THERE'S A LOT OF PLAYERS INVOLVED.

SO I JUST WANTED TO WE PUT TOGETHER THIS HOPEFULLY EASY GRAPHIC TO TO LET YOU KNOW WHO THE PLAYERS ARE AND WHO SOME OF THE RESOURCES THAT WE ACCESS TO HELP US UNDERSTAND AND DEVELOP OUR BUDGETS.

AND THERE'S LINKS WITHIN ALL OF THESE.

SO IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT EACH OF THEM, YOU'LL HAVE ACCESS TO LOOK MORE IN DEPTH AT THESE.

YOU'LL SEE GOVERNOR NEWSOM'S OFFICE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR INITIAL BUDGET PROPOSAL.

DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE IS THEIR FINANCE PERSON.

THAT KIND OF GUIDES THAT QUANTIFIES THE PROPOSALS THAT HE INCLUDES AND KIND OF GUIDES A LITTLE BIT MORE OF THEIR THEIR APPROACH TO THEIR FINANCIAL PRIORITIES.

THE STATE AND LEGISLATURE, AS YOU KNOW, HAVE THE ABILITY TO INTRODUCE LAWS.

AND THEY ALSO HAVE A SAY IN HOW THE BUDGET IS APPROPRIATED.

THE LEGISLATIVE ANALYST'S OFFICE IS AN INDEPENDENT ADVISORY TO THE STATE LEGISLATURE.

THEY ARE NOT BEHOLDEN TO ANYONE.

THEY'RE NONPROFIT.

THEY'RE MEANT TO BE UNBIASED.

BASED OFF THIS IS MY 17TH YEAR IN SCHOOL BUSINESS.

IT'S ALWAYS FUNNY TO SEE THE VERY DIFFERENT NUMBERS THAT YOU SEE FROM DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE AND DEPARTMENT AND THE LEGISLATIVE ANALYST'S OFFICE, LAO.

DOF TENDS TO BE A LOT MORE OPTIMISTIC, AND LAO SEEMS TO BE A LITTLE BIT MORE PESSIMISTIC AND MORE JUST CONSERVATIVE.

IF YOU ASK ME AND PUT ME ON THE SPOT RIGHT NOW, WHO'S USUALLY MORE RIGHT? IT REALLY DEPENDS ON THE YEAR AND WHO THE PLAYERS ARE.

AND MY, MY BET, BASED OFF OF THE REVENUES THIS YEAR IS ON THE LAO WE AS SCHOOL DISTRICTS AGAIN, RESPOND TO WHAT HAPPENS IN THOSE BOXES ABOVE US, AND WE RELY ON THOSE INDIVIDUALS IN THE BOXES BELOW US FOR SUPPORT AND FOR INFORMATION AND FOR ADVOCACY.

CALIFORNIA SCHOOL BOARDS ASSOCIATION.

THANK YOU, WHITNEY, FOR YOUR SERVICE ON THE DELEGATE ASSEMBLY.

KARL. I KNOW YOU'RE INVOLVED IN THE ACSA AND LEGISLATIVE EFFORTS, AND I'M ALSO INVOLVED ON BEHALF OF CHIEF BUSINESS OFFICIALS.

SO WE'RE PRETTY PLUGGED IN AS A DISTRICT ON ALL LEVELS.

SO THIS IS A LOT OF INFORMATION THAT COMES AT US AND A LOT OF INFORMATION THAT WE HAVE TO DIGEST.

LAST MONTH. ONE OF THE SPEAKERS SHARED THAT THE GOVERNOR'S PROPOSAL WAS ONE OF THE MOST POSITIVE GOVERNOR'S BUDGET PRESENTATIONS THAT THEY HAD HEARD.

IT LEFT ME THINKING, WOW, HOW IMPORTANT IT IS THAT WE SHARE INFORMATION AND HOW EASY IT IS TO MAYBE MISINTERPRET BASED OFF OF WHO'S SAYING SHARING THE INFORMATION OR WHAT THEIR TAKEAWAYS ARE.

THEY SHARED THAT THE GOVERNOR'S BUDGET DOESN'T INCLUDE PROP 98 CUTS, NO DEFERRALS AND NO SWEEPS.

[00:30:08]

ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE TRUE.

IT'S NOT GOOD NEWS.

IT'S JUST NOT BAD NEWS.

THEY'RE THE STATE SAYING THEY'RE KEEPING US WHOLE MEANS THAT THEY'RE NOT CUTTING US FURTHER.

HERE'S AN EXAMPLE OF THAT.

THE STATE REQUIRES US TO DEVELOP MULTIYEAR PROJECTIONS ON OUR BUDGET.

THEY TELL US WHAT THE COST OF LIVING ADJUSTMENT WILL BE IN THE CURRENT YEAR.

AND THAT'S USUALLY PRETTY ACCURATE, BECAUSE THERE ARE ONLY MONTHS AWAY FROM APPROVING THEIR BUDGET NEXT YEAR AND THE YEAR AFTER A LOT MORE SKETCHY.

WHEN WE DEVELOPED OUR MULTIYEAR PROJECTIONS, THEY TOLD US TO BUILD IN A COST OF LIVING ADJUSTMENT OF 3.94%.

NOW, MUCH CLOSER TO THE BUDGET DEVELOPMENT FOR 2425, THEY'RE PROJECTING AT 76%.

IT'S BEEN SAID THAT THE COLA WILL GO UP.

THE COLA IS DETERMINED BY A PRESET NUMBER OF EIGHT DATA POINTS, NOT DETERMINED OR NOT IN ANY DIRECT CORRELATION TO THE ABILITY TO PAY IT OR HAVING ADEQUATE FUNDING TO FUND THE COLA.

SO THERE'S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STATUTORY AND FUNDED COLA.

I'LL GET A LITTLE BIT MORE INTO THAT IN THE NEXT SLIDE.

SO YES, WE ANTICIPATE THAT THE STATUTORY COLA WILL GO UP.

THE LAST DATA POINT DOESN'T GET PUBLISHED UNTIL NEXT MONTH.

THE LATEST PROJECTION IS THAT IT WILL GO UP FROM 0.76 TO 0.86, STILL A FAR CRY FROM THE 3.94 THAT WE WERE TOLD LAST YEAR WHEN WE WERE DEVELOPING OUR BUDGETS AND MAKING MULTI YEAR PLANS.

AS A MATTER OF REFERENCE, FOR DOLLARS, THE 0.76 AND 0.86, THAT'S A MATTER OF $30,000 INCREASE.

AGAIN, A LOT OF INFORMATION.

I DON'T EXPECT YOU TO TAKE MY WORD FOR IT.

WE WANT TO SHARE AS MUCH INFORMATION WITH YOU AND THE COMMUNITY AS POSSIBLE.

AND SO I PROVIDED DIRECT LINKS TO ALL OF THE VARIOUS ARTICLES AND ANALYZES THAT, IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT OUR BUDGET AND OUR IMPACTS, YOU'RE WELCOME TO READ THAT.

AGAIN, MY USUAL QUALIFIER AT THE BOTTOM RIGHT.

THESE ARE INITIAL GOVERNOR'S BUDGET PROPOSALS.

A LOT CAN CHANGE BETWEEN NOW AND JULY.

OKAY. SO LET'S DRILL A LITTLE BIT DEEPER OR A LITTLE BIT CLOSER TO CORONADO.

AGAIN I MENTIONED THAT THE STATUTORY COLA IS NOT ALWAYS FUNDED.

I SHARED HOW THOSE METRICS DERIVE AT A STATUTORY COLA.

WE ARE ADVOCATING AT THE CBO LEVEL, CHIEF BUSINESS OFFICER LEVEL TO ADVOCATE FOR, AT THE VERY LEAST, FULLY FUNDING COLA, WHATEVER THAT NUMBER IS.

SO LOOKING AT THE BLUE BOX REPRESENTS THE OUTYEAR REVENUE PROJECTIONS PRIOR TO THE GOVERNOR'S UPDATED NUMBERS.

FOR 24-25, AS I MENTIONED, 3.94, OUR ANTICIPATED REVENUE WAS JUST UNDER 33 MILLION.

WITH THE GOVERNOR'S UPDATED PROJECTIONS NOW AT 0.76, WHICH LEADS US TO A PROJECTION OF $32 MILLION IN REVENUES, THE DELTA IS $1 MILLION LESS IN REVENUE FOR 24-25.

AND BECAUSE IT'S ONGOING AND COMPOUNDED, YOU'LL SEE THE IMPACT ON THE SUBSEQUENT YEARS ON OUR PROJECTIONS.

OKAY, SO WHAT DOES A 0.76 COLA REALLY MEAN FOR CORONADO UNIFIED? LOOKING AT OUR 23-24 PROJECTED REVENUES? THERE'S A LOT OF FACTORS THAT COME INTO IT.

IT'S THE COST OF LIVING ADJUSTMENTS, STUDENT DEMOGRAPHICS AS WELL AS STUDENT ENROLLMENT AND ATTENDANCE.

YOU'LL SEE THAT BASED OFF OF OUR DECLINING ENROLLMENT, THE DECLINING COST OF LIVING ADJUSTMENT, WE'RE ACTUALLY GOING TO SEE LESS MONEY COMING INTO OUR DISTRICT NEXT YEAR.

IF THIS GOVERNOR'S BUDGET PROPOSAL HOLDS TO THE TUNE OF ABOUT 300,000, IT'S IMPORTANT TO SHARE THE COST OF LIVING.

ADJUSTMENT IS MEANT TO COVER ALL OF THE DISTRICT'S COSTS, NOT JUST ANY SPECIFIC BUCKETS.

SO AS HEALTH AND WELFARE INCREASES, CONTRIBUTIONS TO PERSIAN STIRS AND UTILITIES, WE'RE ALL SEEING INCREASE IN UTILITIES THAT COST OF LIVING ADJUSTMENT IS MEANT TO ADDRESS ALL OF THE ADDITIONAL EXPENDITURES THAT WE HAVE AS A DISTRICT.

OKAY. SO BIG PICTURE WE GOT THE GOVERNOR'S BUDGET.

WE ARE REQUIRED TO DEVELOP MULTIYEAR BUDGETS.

THE DISTRICT HAS IDENTIFIED AN ADDITIONAL $2.3 MILLION IN DEFICIT SPENDING FOR THE 24-25 SCHOOL YEAR.

THE BOARD TOOK ACTION TWO WEEKS AGO TO HAVE REDUCTIONS IN STAFFING.

AND WE, AS A STAFF, HAVE ALSO REALIZED OR IDENTIFIED ADDITIONAL SAVINGS.

SO OUT OF THE 2.3 MILLION, IN ORDER TO, TO BALANCE OR GET US BACK TO THIS PRE GOVERNOR'S BUDGET PROJECTIONS WE NEEDED TO CUT 2.3 MILLION. WE'VE IDENTIFIED 1.8 ADDITIONAL REDUCTIONS WILL BE NECESSARY, IN ORDER FOR US TO KEEP OUR BRIDGE TO BASIC AID WHOLE. AND THESE ARE THE CONTRIBUTING FACTORS, $1.1 MILLION OF COVID MONIES WILL BE EXHAUSTED AT THE END OF THIS FISCAL

[00:35:09]

YEAR. SO THE ADDITIONAL SUPPORTS THAT WE HIRED OR BROUGHT ON NO LONGER HAVE THE FUNDING SOURCE TO SUPPORT THOSE EXPENDITURES.

WE ALSO ARE EXPERIENCING DECLINING ENROLLMENTS.

FOR 2020, WE HAD ENROLLMENT OF ABOUT 3100 STUDENTS.

OUR ENROLLMENT IS CURRENTLY ABOUT 2737.

AND LASTLY, THE MOST RECENT UPDATE TO OUR FINANCIAL PICTURE IS THE DECREASED COLA FROM 3.94 TO ABOUT 1%.

IT'S ABOUT $1 MILLION OF AN ADJUSTMENT TO OUR REVENUES.

YOU'VE SEEN THIS GRAPHIC BEFORE.

IT HAS BEEN OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU TO SHARE OUR PROGRESS TOWARDS A FULL BRIDGE TO BASIC AID.

WE ANTICIPATE NOT HAVING ACTUALLY HAVING A NEGATIVE ENDING FUND BALANCE IN 26, 27 BASED OFF OF ALL OF THE FACTORS THAT I JUST SHARED WITH YOU.

FOR THE PUBLIC'S BENEFIT, WHAT IS BASIC AID? I KNOW YOU'VE HEARD THIS A MILLION TIMES, BUT BASIC AID IS A DIFFERENT FUNDING MODEL, DIFFERENT FROM WHAT WE AS USD ARE CURRENTLY FUNDED ON.

ESSENTIALLY THE THERE'S A CALCULATION THAT DETERMINES WHAT THE MINIMUM STATE FUNDING IS FOR SCHOOL DISTRICTS TO OPERATE.

THAT'S THE BUCKETS, THAT'S THE SIZE OF THE BUCKET.

UNDER AN LCFF OR A STATE AID FUNDED DISTRICT THE LOCAL PROPERTY TAXES WILL FILL THE BUCKET AS MUCH AS IT CAN.

AND IF IT DOESN'T FILL THE BUCKET, THE STATE FILLS IT UP, REPRESENTING THE GREEN PORTION UNDER A BASIC AID OR LOCALLY FUNDED SCHOOL DISTRICT, THE LOCAL PROPERTY TAXES ARE SUFFICIENT TO FILL THE BUCKET AND THEN SOME AND FILL UP ANOTHER BUCKET.

ALL OF THAT MONEY TYPICALLY GETS TO STAY IN A LOCALLY FUNDED SCHOOL DISTRICT.

WE ANTICIPATE BECOMING A BASIC AID SCHOOL DISTRICT BEGINNING IN THE 27-28 FISCAL YEAR.

AND I'VE SHARED PROJECTIONS BEFORE THAT'S ANYWHERE BETWEEN 10 OR 8 TO $12 MILLION IN ADDITIONAL ONGOING FUNDING.

SO OUR GOAL AND OUR CHARGES AS A ADMINISTRATIVE TEAM WAS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAD STRUCTURES AND SYSTEMS AND SUPPORT TO MAINTAIN HIGH LEVEL OF PROGRAMS SUFFICIENT TO WHEN WE GET TO BASIC AID.

ONE MORE PIECE OF INFORMATION, JUST IN TERMS OF TRACKING OUR ABILITY TO MEET THAT TARGET OF 27-28 BECOMING A BASIC AID, LOCALLY FUNDED SCHOOL DISTRICT.

THIS IS THE TURBO REDEMPTION DEBT SERVICE SCHEDULE.

THE MOST IMPORTANT NUMBERS THAT YOU WOULD BE INTERESTED IN LOOKING AT IS THE NUMBER TO THE BOTTOM RIGHT, CURRENTLY 4.8 MILLION.

AS LONG AS THAT NUMBER IS POSITIVE, WE'RE GOING TO MEET OUR GOAL OF BECOMING A BASIC AID SCHOOL DISTRICT.

THERE'S A VERY SLIGHT POSSIBILITY THAT WE MAY BE ABLE TO PREPAY MAYBE SIX MONTHS, MAYBE A YEAR EARLY.

AND THOSE NUMBERS ARE REALLY THAT YOU NEED TO LOOK AT, ARE IN THE SECOND COLUMN, 14.3 MILLION AND 8.8 MILLION.

SO ROUGHLY 23 MILLION.

IF WE'RE ABLE TO PREPAY AND HAVE THE BOTTOM RIGHT NUMBER BE 23 MILLION, WE WILL HIT BASIC EIGHT A YEAR EARLY.

IT'S A HEAVY LIFT.

IT'S NOT IMPOSSIBLE.

SOME VERY OPTIMISTIC FINANCIAL ANALYSTS HAVE SAID THAT IT COULD BE POSSIBLE.

BUT IT'S VERY UNLIKELY.

OKAY. SO WITH THAT, WE WANT TO SHARE THAT WE'RE COMMITTED TO COMMUNICATING WITH TRANSPARENCY AND INTEGRITY.

I HAVE THE NEXT OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL SLIDES, A LOT OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOU AND PUBLIC TO ENGAGE US IN QUESTIONS, THINGS THAT YOU MIGHT BE HEARING AROUND TOWN THAT YOU WANT TO JUST ASK THE SOURCE DIRECTLY.

WE INVITE YOU TO DO SO.

WE'VE PROVIDED A LINK THERE TO A GOOGLE FORM AS WELL AS A QR CODE.

AND PLEASE ASK US ANYTHING AND WE'LL BE COMPILING THESE QUESTIONS ONTO A FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS PAGE, WHICH I'LL SHARE HERE.

I ALSO WANT TO INVITE SOME MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY THAT ARE INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE BUDGET AND HAVING MORE OF AN INTERACTIVE DIALOG TO OUR NEXT BUDGET STUDY COMMITTEE MEETING, WHICH IS SCHEDULED FOR APRIL 17TH HERE IN THE BOARD ROOM AT 3:45.

AND LASTLY, IF YOU WANT TO JUST GET INFORMATION AT YOUR FINGERTIPS, WE'LL BE UPDATING THE DISTRICT'S WEBSITE TO INTRODUCE THESE TWO NEW FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS PAGES. THE FIRST ABOUT INFORMATION UPDATES REGARDING OUR BUDGET, AND THE SECOND AS IT RELATES TO NEGOTIATIONS WITH OUR TWO LABOR GROUPS.

NEXT STEPS.

THE BOARD IS ASKED TO APPROVE A POSITIVE CERTIFICATION FOR A SECOND INTERIM BUDGET.

THIS INDICATES THAT WE, AS A DISTRICT, WILL BE ABLE TO MEET OUR FISCAL OBLIGATIONS FOR THE CURRENT AND TWO SUBSEQUENT FISCAL YEARS.

THERE'S LOTS OF LAYERS OF OVERSIGHT.

AFTER THE BOARD TAKES ACTION TONIGHT, THE COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION WILL REVIEW AND VALIDATE THE DATA THAT WE SUBMIT AND EITHER SUPPORT OUR CERTIFICATION AS POSITIVE

[00:40:04]

OR MAKE EDITS OR OTHER COMMENTS.

AND WITH THAT, WE LOOK FORWARD TO THE MAIN REVISION IN HOPES OF MORE POSITIVE NEWS.

ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? IS THERE ANY PUBLIC COMMENT ON THIS ITEM? HELLO, I'M REGINA SEBRING, A RESIDENT OF CORONADO.

I'M HERE TO GIVE YOU SOME STATISTICS ABOUT YOUR PROPOSED CUTS, PARTICULARLY TO YOUR COUNSELING DEPARTMENT.

A LOT OF WHAT I'M GOING TO TELL YOU COMES FROM THE CDC.

THE CDC IS PAINTS A PICTURE OF US HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN DISTRESS.

AN INCREASING NUMBER OF STUDENTS REPORTED PERSISTENT FEELINGS OF SADNESS OR HOPELESSNESS IN 2021.

THE PERSISTENT DEPRESSION NUMBERS ARE 57% OF GIRLS, 29% OF BOYS, AND 69% OF LGBTQ STUDENTS.

THE SUICIDE RATE IS 13% OF HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS HAVE ATTEMPTED SUICIDE AND 30% HAD SERIOUSLY CONSIDERED IT.

LGBTQ TEENS ARE AT 20% OF ATTEMPTED SUICIDE AND 45% HAD SERIOUSLY CONSIDERED IT.

CORONADO IS NOT IMMUNE FROM THESE STATISTICS.

TEENS ARE YOUNG ADULTS WHO GROW UP IN HIGH INCOME ENCLAVES, ARE PURSUING HIGHER EDUCATION IN THEORY, SHOULD HAVE MORE RESOURCES AND LESS STRESS THAN THEIR LOWER INCOME PEERS.

HOWEVER, MICHELLE BURKE OF THE PSYCHIATRY AND BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES AT STANFORD UNIVERSITY SAYS, I CAN IMAGINE PEOPLE WOULD THINK ABOUT KIDS WHO ARE AFFLUENT AND THINK THEY HAVE EVERY ADVANTAGE IN LIFE.

UNFORTUNATELY, DEPRESSIONS AND FEELINGS OF HOPELESSNESS AND SUICIDE CAN START INTERNALLY AND ARE NOT DEPENDENT ON WHAT'S GOING ON IN ONE'S LIFE.

AS AN EXAMPLE, IN PALO ALTO, THE AVERAGE HOUSEHOLD INCOME IS $200,000 AND THE YOUTH SUICIDE RATE IS FOUR TIMES THE NATIONAL AVERAGE.

MILITARY FAMILIES ALSO FACE THEIR OWN TROUBLES IN CORONADO.

OF MILITARY FAMILIES IN GENERAL, 29% RATE BEHAVIORAL HEALTH IN THEIR COMMUNITY AS INADEQUATE.

44% OF TRICARE MEMBERS REPORT HAVING DIFFICULTY GETTING MENTAL HEALTH CARE TREATMENT FOR THEIR CHILDREN, 38% HAVE DIFFICULTY GETTING REFERRALS, AND 39% HAVE DIFFICULTY GETTING SPECIALIST CARE.

UNLIKE ANYTHING THAT WE OR EVEN OUR PARENTS EXPERIENCED, OUR KIDS ARE GOING THROUGH TRAUMA FROM COVID AND AN INCREASED SCHOOL SHOOTINGS EPIDEMIC, WHICH LEADS TO STRESS. THEY'RE HAVING A LOT OF DRILLS FOR THOSE THINGS, LOCKDOWNS.

THE FIVE LEADING CAUSES OF DEATH AMONG TEENAGERS ARE, FIRSTLY, ACCIDENTS, UNINTENTIONAL INJURIES, BUT THEY'RE FOLLOWED BY HOMICIDE AND SUICIDE.

THE AMERICAN SCHOOL COUNSELOR ASSOCIATIONS RECOMMENDS A RATIO OF 250 TO 1 IN CORONADO.

BY MY MATH, OF 2700 STUDENTS DIVIDED BY SIX COUNSELORS, THAT'S STILL A 450 TO 1 RATIO.

AND IF YOU KNOCK THAT DOWN TO THREE COUNSELORS, YOU WILL HAVE AN ASTONISHING 900 TO 1 RATIO OF COUNSELORS.

WHAT CAN YOU DO? STUDIES HAVE NOTED THAT SMALLER RATIOS INCREASE STANDARDIZED TEST PERFORMANCE, ATTENDANCE, GPA, GRADUATION RATES, AND THE AMOUNT OF CHILDREN GOING TO COLLEGE AND POST-SECONDARY SCHOOLS.

YOU CAN PAY IT NOW, OR YOU CAN PAY IT LATER.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO INVEST IN COUNSELING, YOU WILL HAVE DECREASED DISCIPLINARY INFRACTIONS, TAKES UP LESS TIME FROM OTHER SCHOOL OFFICIALS, VICE PRINCIPALS NEGATIVE OUTCOMES. THE STANDARD DEVIATION CHANGE IN RATIO ONE STANDARD DEVIATION CHANGE IN RATIO IS LIKELY TO RESULT IN 6% DEVIATION IN STUDENT OUTCOMES.

THAT'S TIME. LAST SENTENCE.

CORONADO IS AN EXCELLENT PLACE AND WE CAN DO BETTER.

SCHOOL COUNSELORS CHANGE KIDS LIVES AND THEY SAVE KIDS LIVES.

THANK YOU. YOU KNOW I'M SPEAKING ON THE SAME PLANE. EVERYONE GETS A CHANCE TODAY, SO.

HEY, ALL, I'M BRIAN GARCIA, COUNSELOR AT CORONADO MIDDLE SCHOOL, AND I'D LIKE TO SPEAK ON THE SAME POINT, SPECIFICALLY THAT DEALING WITH MENTAL HEALTH HERE IN THE DISTRICT.

I'M ALSO COMING WITH SOME FACTS, FIGURES AND FINDINGS.

SO ACCORDING TO THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS.

MENTALLY HEALTHY CHILDREN ARE MORE SUCCESSFUL IN SCHOOL AND LIFE.

THAT'S A FACT. MENTAL HEALTH IS NOT SIMPLY BASED IN THE ABSENCE OF MENTAL ILLNESS, BUT ALSO ENCOMPASSES SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL, AND BEHAVIORAL WELLNESS.

SECONDLY SCHOOL IS AN IDEAL PLACE TO PROVIDE MENTAL AND BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SERVICES TO CHILDREN AND YOUTH AND IS AN IDEAL CONTEXT FOR PREVENTION, INTERVENTION, AND POSITIVE DEVELOPMENT. RESEARCH SHOWS THAT SCHOOL EMPLOYED MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS OFFER CARING RELATIONSHIPS AND REGULAR, CONSISTENT CONNECTIONS BETWEEN STUDENTS AND PARENTS, AND THAT STUDENTS ARE MORE ARE MORE LIKELY TO SEEK OUT COUNSELING WHEN SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE IN SCHOOLS.

COMPREHENSIVE SCHOOL MENTAL HEALTH AND BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SERVICES SUPPORT THE MISSION AND PURPOSE OF SCHOOLS LEARNING, AND IT IS ESSENTIAL TO CREATING AND SUSTAINING A SAFE.

[00:45:05]

SCHOOLS. PROVIDING A CONTINUUM OF SCHOOL MENTAL HEALTH AND BEHAVIORAL HEALTH IS CRITICAL TO EFFECTIVELY ADDRESSING THE BREADTH OF STUDENTS NEEDS.

COMPREHENSIVE MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES ARE MOST EFFECTIVE WHEN PROVIDED THROUGH THE MULTI-TIERED SYSTEM OF SUPPORT MODEL.

AND LET ME CLARIFY THAT A LITTLE BIT.

WE HAVE THERAPY DOGS THAT PROVIDE SEL LESSONS THROUGH OUR T THREE OR ADVISORY PERIOD, AND THEY ARE A TIER ONE SUPPORT.

WE'VE ACTUALLY GOT ONE HERE TONIGHT, MISO.

COUNSELING IS A TIER ONE AND TIER TWO SUPPORT.

CLINICAL COUNSELING IS A TIER TWO AND TIER THREE SUPPORT.

AND OUR ERMHS COUNSELING IS ALSO A TIER THREE SUPPORT.

LAST POINT FROM THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS IS IMPROVING STAFFING RATIOS FOR SCHOOL BASED MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS, IS CRITICAL TO ADEQUATELY SUPPORTING STUDENTS MENTAL HEALTH AND BEHAVIORAL, MENTAL, AND BEHAVIORAL HEALTH.

MORE FACTS AND FIGURES ACCORDING TO THE CDC, 9.9 ADOLESCENTS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 12 AND 17 WHO MISSES MORE THAN 11 DAYS OF SCHOOL IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS WERE A RESULT OF ILLNESS, INJURY OR DISABILITY, WHICH ALSO INCLUDES MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES, ACCORDING TO CYBERBULLYING.

ORG IN 2023 I'M SORRY, FROM 2016, 10.3% OF STUDENTS REPORTED STAYING HOME FROM SCHOOL BECAUSE OF CYBERBULLYING, AND IN 2023, THAT NUMBER ROSE TO 19.2%. IN 2016, 43% OF STUDENTS SAID THAT BULLYING AND CYBERBULLYING WAS A BIG DEAL, AND IN 2023, THAT NUMBER ROSE TO 54%, ACCORDING TO THE NATIONAL ALLIANCE OF MENTAL HEALTH, MENTAL ILLNESS AND CDC, SUICIDE IS THE THIRD LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH FOR US CHILDREN AGES 10 TO 14, AND IS THE SECOND LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH AMONG ADOLESCENTS 15 TO 19.

HERE'S WHERE IT HITS CLOSER TO MY HOME HERE AT CMS. BASED ON THE 20 2223 HEALTHY KIDS SURVEY OF CMS, 24% OF SIXTH GRADERS, 22% OF SEVENTH GRADERS, AND 30% OF EIGHTH GRADERS REPORTED SOCIAL EMOTIONAL DISTRESS.

20% 27% OF SIXTH GRADERS, 20% OF SEVENTH GRADERS, AND 32% OF EIGHTH GRADERS REPORTED EXPERIENCING CHRONIC SADNESS AND HOPELESSNESS.

AND FINALLY, 7% OF SIXTH GRADERS AND 8% OF SEVENTH GRADERS AND 14% OF EIGHTH GRADERS CONSIDERED SUICIDE.

WE'RE LOSING ONE OF OUR MAIN COUNSELORS, MISS ROBBIE, AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL.

WE NEED HELP.

I'M HOPING YOU ALL CAN FIND THAT MONEY IN THE BUDGET TO SAVE OUR COUNSELORS.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

AFTERNOON BOARD MEMBERS. SUPERINTENDENT.

MR. SALAMANCA, I REALLY ENJOYED YOUR PRESENTATION BECAUSE IT SPEAKS TO WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT RIGHT NOW.

IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A VERY CHALLENGING OBSTACLE IN FRONT OF YOU FIGURING OUT HOW TO MAKE ALL THIS WORK, AND I GET THAT, THAT WHEN NEGATIVE DECISIONS ARE MADE, EVERYBODY HAS A LOT TO SAY ABOUT IT. I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU'RE GOING TO SOLVE IT, BUT I CAN TRY AND SPEAK TO ONE THING I THINK YOU SHOULDN'T DO, AND THAT'S CUT THIS COUNSELING PROGRAM.

I'M A RETIRED CHIEF. I'VE GOT THREE KIDS IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT HERE, AND I'D LIKE TO JUST TELL YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ONE OF THEM.

SO MY OLDEST SON IS AN AUTISTIC SPECTRUM DISORDER, LEVEL TWO ADHD.

AND HIS TRANSITION FROM FIFTH GRADE [INAUDIBLE] ELEMENTARY TO THE SCHOOL WAS CHALLENGING.

HE HAD A LOT THAT HE HAD TO ADAPT TO.

THAT TRANSFORMATION RESULTED IN HAVING FIVE BLACK SHIRTS, FIVE PAIRS OF BLACK PANTS, FIVE HATS, MASKS, AND HE WORE THE EXACT SAME OUTFIT EVERY SINGLE DAY BECAUSE HE DIDN'T FEEL COMFORTABLE. AND WHEN HE MET MISS ROBBIE AND THE THERAPY DOG PROGRAM, EVERYTHING CHANGED.

HE'S ALIVE NOW.

HE'S HAS SO MUCH LIFE.

HE WEARS ALL KINDS OF COLORS.

I CAN'T EVEN BEGIN TO REALLY CAPTURE IT RIGHT NOW FOR YOU.

I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THE RIGHT WORDS TO TO REALLY GET IT, BUT I KNOW THAT CUTTING THESE, THE COUNSELING BY HALF IS GOING TO BE A TERRIBLE CHOICE.

BUT I ALSO KNOW THAT, LIKE, WHAT ELSE DO YOU DO? WHERE DO YOU FIND IT? I REALLY IMPLORE YOU TO TRY AND FIND A WAY.

HIS SUCCESS IN THE SCHOOL IS OWED TO MANY GREAT TEACHERS.

ALL THE PROGRAMS YOU DO AND THE OVERALL GREAT DISTRICT.

BUT IT IS VERY PARTICULARLY OWED TO MISS ROBBIE THE DOG PROGRAM.

PLEASE DON'T CUT IT.

YOU KNOW, I'LL KEEP IT SHORT AND SIMPLE.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

TRUSTEES. COMMENTS.

QUESTIONS FOR MR. SALAMANCA. LET'S GO FIRST.

ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS.

YOU GO. ALL RIGHT, I'LL GO.

MR.. SALAMANCA, ARE YOU AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS? IS THAT ALL RIGHT? YES.

OKAY, GREAT. YOU MADE A STATEMENT ON PAGE WITH REGARD TO YOUR SLIDE ON PAGE 20 THAT I WANT TO DRILL DOWN ON.

YOU SAID IF WE ARE ABLE TO PREPAY CAN YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN?

[00:50:03]

IT'S NOT WRITTEN ON YOUR SIDE. BUT YOU SAID IT IN CONJUNCTION WITH THAT SLIDE.

YES. SO LET ME CLARIFY THIS STATEMENT.

WE, WHO IS THE WE? THE WE IS THE SUCCESSOR AGENCY TO THE REDEVELOPMENT.

IT'S A SEPARATE BODY HOUSED AT THE COUNTY LEVEL.

THERE'S REALLY NOT A LOT OF ONE PERSON OR A GROUP OF PEOPLE CAN'T MAKE A DECISION TO PAY MORE.

IT'S FULLY A FUNCTION OF PROPERTY TAXES AND THE EXCESS THEREOF.

AND IF THERE IT'S A VERY BASIC CALCULATION.

AND IT'S DRIVEN BY PROPERTY TAXES.

SO THAT'S REALLY OUT OF ANYONE'S CONTROL.

SO DOES THE CITY HAVE ANY DISCRETION IN CONTRIBUTING TO THAT TURBO REDEMPTION OR TO PAYING THAT DOWN MORE RAPIDLY AS THE SUCCESSOR AGENCY TO THE RDA? NO. SO WE COULDN'T TRADE A CASE PARK FOR THIS? NO. AND IF I COULD, I KNOW I'LL LOOK AT SUPERINTENDENT MUELLER IF I CAN SHARE.

THERE'S A LOT OF CONTEXT WITH THIS, A PREVIOUS BOARD WENT THROUGH THE PROCESS OF ACTUALLY SUING DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE TWICE.

A LOT OF HUGE LAWSUIT, APPEALS, ALL OF THAT.

ESSENTIALLY, THEY WERE UNSUCCESSFUL IN THE ABILITY TO PREPAY IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CITY, WHO WAS THE SUCCESSOR AGENCY TO THE RDA AT THE TIME? HUGE OR OTHER SERIES OF EVENTS, LOW INTEREST RATES.

NEW PLAYERS.

WE WORKED VERY CLOSELY WITH THE CITY.

BEFORE THEY TURNED OVER CONTROL AND OVERSIGHT OF THE RDA TO THE COUNTY, WHICH WAS REQUIRED BY THE STATE.

AND BEFORE, I THINK MONTHS BEFORE THAT TRANSITION HAPPENED THEY WERE SUCCESSFUL IN REFINANCING THE DEBT, WHICH WAS A LITTLE BIT OF A THE GRAY AREA IN THE LAW THAT ALLOWED US TO ACCELERATE OUR TRANSITION TO BASIC AID FROM ORIGINALLY WAS SUPPOSED TO BE 2036.

BECAUSE OF THIS NEW STRUCTURE THAT THEY PUT IN PLACE, WE ANTICIPATE ACCELERATING THAT BY ALMOST TEN YEARS.

BUT EVERYTHING THAT WE CAN DO HAS BEEN DONE.

THERE'S REALLY WE'RE LEAVING IT ALL UP TO PROPERTY TAXES AT THIS POINT.

ECHOING THE THANK YOU.

THAT THAT PROVIDES A LOT OF CONTEXT, AND I APPRECIATE IT.

I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT THAT THE THE PUBLIC HEAR THAT AND UNDERSTAND HOW THAT WORKS AND THAT BIG IF, IF WE ARE ABLE TO PREPAY LIKE, WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT? THE NEXT QUESTION I'M STANDING IN SUPPORT OF COUNSELING, MENTAL HEALTH, SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING, EVERYTHING WE OFFER TO OUR STUDENTS.

THANK YOU TO THE SPEAKERS THAT CAME.

WHAT ELSE CAN WE DO? WHERE ELSE CAN WE CUT? I MEAN, WHAT CAN WE DO? YOU KNOW, THERE'S A LOT OF CONVERSATIONS HAPPENING STILL.

WE INCLUDED IN OUR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS IS, WHAT HAVE WE DONE? OR WHAT ARE WE CURRENTLY DOING? OUR APPROACH IS YOU KNOW, THREE FOLD.

WE'RE RIGHTSIZING STAFFING.

WE'RE CURRENTLY 300 STUDENTS BELOW WHERE WE WERE IN THE PREVIOUS FOR FOR WHAT WE'RE STAFFED FOR CURRENTLY.

SO WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF THROUGH ATTRITION, RIGHTSIZING OUR STAFFING TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE CONSISTENT WITH RATIOS IN THE LAW AS WELL AS THE COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENTS.

WE ARE ALSO LOOKING AT WAYS THAT WE CAN BOLSTER OUR ENROLLMENT.

WE'VE OPENED OUR INTERDISTRICT TRANSFER WINDOW.

CLOSE TO A MONTH AND A HALF IN ADVANCE OF WHAT WE HAVE HISTORICALLY DONE.

AND WE, IN THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS, ARE GOING TO BE LAUNCHING OUR ONLINE REGISTRATION.

IT'S GOING TO BE VERY IMPORTANT FOR PARENTS OF THE COMMUNITY TO REGISTER THEIR STUDENTS EARLY SO THAT WE CAN HAVE A VERY, OR AT LEAST A MORE REALISTIC NUMBER OF HOW MANY STUDENTS WE SHOULD BE STAFFING FOR.

AND THAT IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE INTERDISTRICT TRANSFER PROCESS, WE'LL BE ABLE TO ROUND OUT OUR CLASSES TO ONE, AT LEAST MEET THE MINIMUM FUNDING TARGETS THAT WE'VE ESTABLISHED FOR THE BUDGET.

AND HOPEFULLY MOVE CLOSER TOWARDS THAT 3100 LEVEL TO, TO KIND OF SUPPORT OUR, OUR STAFFING AND REVENUE PICTURE. JUST FOR CLARIFICATION, WHEN YOU SAY 3100, YOU MEAN TOTAL ENROLLMENT? TOTAL ENROLLMENT. CORRECT? YES. CAN I DO A QUICK FOLLOW UP ON THAT BEFORE MAYBE CHANGE TOPICS? I KNOW IDT'S, WE TALK ABOUT THAT A LOT AND BRINGING IN NEW STUDENTS BECAUSE THAT WILL BRING IN NEW FUNDING.

BUT THE DISTRICT THEY COME FROM ALSO HAS TO LET THEM GO.

RIGHT. SO GIVEN THAT EVERY DISTRICT IS IN THE SAME SITUATION, WHAT ARE THE ODDS? I MEAN, I KNOW WE CAN'T, BUT WHAT WOULD, WHY WOULD ANOTHER DISTRICT LET A STUDENT GO AND LET THAT FUNDING POSSIBLY GO SO THEY COULD COME HERE SO WE COULD GET THAT FUNDING? YES. THAT THERE IS A DISINCENTIVE FOR OTHER DISTRICTS TO RELEASE THEIR STUDENTS.

WE, IN HAVING SPECIALIZED PROGRAMS LIKE COSA AND OUR NJROTC PROGRAM HAVE THE ABILITY TO THOSE DISTRICTS

[00:55:07]

CAN'T PREVENT THEIR STUDENTS FROM LEAVING IF THEY'RE GOING TO ATTEND OUR SPECIALIZED PROGRAMS. SO WHAT WE'RE DOING IS THE DISTRICT IS MAKING SURE THAT WE'RE PROMOTING THOSE SPECIALIZED PROGRAMS. AND WILL SUPPORT THOSE FAMILIES IN THE EVENT THAT THEIR DISTRICT WON'T RELEASE THEM.

THERE'S SOME WAYS THAT WE CAN FORCE THEM TO.

THERE ARE OTHER SORRY FOR INTERRUPTING.

THERE ARE SOME OTHER CONDITIONS THAT WE CAN TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION.

EMPLOYEES. CHILDREN ARE GUARANTEED ADMISSION INTO OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT.

AND THEN THERE ARE SOME PROVISIONS WITHIN OUR BOARD POLICY WHERE EMPLOYEES, IN PARTICULAR ON OUR NAVAL BASES THAT WORK ON THE ISLAND, THAT THEY HAVE PREFERENTIAL RIGHTS AND PLACEMENTS WITHIN OUR DISTRICT.

SO WE'RE WORKING CLOSELY WITH OUR MILITARY PARTNERS, AND WITH THE GREATER SAN DIEGO ARTS COMMUNITY TO BEEF UP RECRUITING EFFORTS, IF YOU WILL TO TRY TO ACHIEVE OUR OBJECTIVE OF GETTING BACK TO THAT 3100 DISTRICT TOTAL.

THANK YOU. SO TO MAKE SURE I'M UNDERSTANDING AS A COMMUNITY, WE CAN TRY TO HELP BY MAKING SURE WE REGISTER OUR KIDS EARLY ONLINE WHEN THAT GOES OUT.

WE SAID A COUPLE OF WEEKS? A WEEK AFTER SPRING BREAK, THE WEEK AFTER SPRING BREAK, WE CAN TRY TO RECRUIT FRIENDS AND FAMILY FROM OTHER DISTRICTS THAT MIGHT BE ESPECIALLY INTERESTED IN COSA AND NJROTC, OR HAVE FAMILIES THAT WORK ON THE ISLAND AND ENCOURAGE AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO CONSIDER APPLYING FOR INTERDISTRICT TRANSFERS.

IS THAT SOMETHING WE COULD ACTUALLY DO? THAT'S ALL GREAT POINTS.

YES. OKAY. THAT HELPS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I THINK THAT'S ALL MY QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU.

MR. SALAMANCA ON PAGE FOUR, WE YOU TALKED ABOUT OTHER LOCAL REVENUES.

WHAT DOES THAT CONSIST OF? AND HAVE THOSE AMOUNTS BEEN FAIRLY CONSISTENT OVER THE PAST THREE, FOUR YEARS? THEY HAVE. SO THERE'S I'D SAY 3 TO 4 OF THE LARGEST CONTRIBUTORS.

WE RECEIVE MONIES TO SUPPORT STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS.

THAT IS A PASS THROUGH THROUGH THE COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION.

THE NEXT BIG COMPONENT OF THAT IS THE RETURN OR THE CONTRIBUTION THAT WE RECEIVE FROM CORONADO SCHOOLS FOUNDATION, WHO HAS THEIR FUNDRAISER TODAY.

AND THE COSA FOUNDATION AS WELL.

IS A LARGE CONTRIBUTOR OF OTHER LOCAL REVENUE.

BEYOND THAT, IT'S ALSO THE LEASE AND FACILITY RENTALS THAT WE HAVE AND A FEW OTHER MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. THE PTO FUNDING AND CONTRIBUTIONS ARE ALSO INCLUDED IN THERE.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU.

MR. SALAMANCA, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR PRESENTATION.

I JUST WANT TO CLARIFY OR JUST HAVE YOU STATE AGAIN THAT IT LOOKS LIKE THAT THE DISTRICT ESSENTIALLY IS DEFICIT SPENDING SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 4 AND $6 MILLION A YEAR OVER THE NEXT 3 OR 4 YEARS IN ORDER TO REACH BASIC AID, I THINK IT'S SLIDE 18.

SO 4 TO $6 MILLION A YEAR WHERE DEFICIT SPENDING.

YES. SO IN A WAY, THE DISTRICT, THE COMMUNITY IS GETTING THAT MUCH MORE, MORE OF A, OF PROGRAMS THAN WE ACTUALLY ARE TAKING IN, IN TERMS OF REVENUE.

RIGHT. I'M NOT MISSING ANYTHING ON THAT RIGHT? YOU'RE NOT. WE'RE SPENDING DOWN OUR RESERVES, AND WE HAVE ABOUT $500,000 STILL IN CUTS TO IDENTIFY IN ORDER TO MAKE THIS WORK.

IF WE'RE LOOKING AT ONE TIME DOLLARS AND MAKING THIS BRIDGE WHOLE WE NEED AT LEAST POINT 8 OR 800,000.

THAT'S NOT 800,000.

NOTWITHSTANDING ANY ADDITIONAL COST PRESSURES THAT AREN'T INCLUDED IN THE BUDGET.

OKAY. THANK YOU.

MAY I FOR A POINT OF CLARIFICATION ON TRUSTEE YOUNGBLOOD'S COMMENT.

CAMI, DO YOU MIND GOING TO SLIDE SEVEN OR DONNIE? SLIDE SEVEN? AS DONNIE MENTIONED, ADDITIONAL CUTS MAY BE NECESSARY FOR US TO ACHIEVE OUR OBJECTIVE OF REACHING BASIC AID.

I WANT TO POINT OUT ON THIS SLIDE THE MARCH-APRIL.

NO LATER THAN MARCH 15TH.

PRELIMINARY LAID OFF LAYOFF NOTICES MUST BE SERVED.

THIS IS A MANDATE. WE'RE REQUIRED TO NOTICE EMPLOYEES PRIOR TO MARCH 15TH.

I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THERE ARE OTHER WAYS THE DISTRICT CAN IDENTIFY EFFICIENCIES.

AND STAFF IS EXPLORING THOSE.

ALL NON UNION MEMBERS OF OUR STAFF ARE NOT BEHOLDEN TO THE MARCH 15TH DEADLINE.

[01:00:08]

WE HAVE A LIST OF OTHER SCENARIOS THAT WE'RE EXPLORING AS A DISTRICT THAT WOULD RECOGNIZE SOME SAVINGS WHILE WE'RE AGGRESSIVELY PURSUING ADDITIONAL REVENUES COMING INTO THE DISTRICT.

AND THEN ANNUALLY WE HAVE ATTRITION, RESIGNATIONS AND RETIREMENTS, AND WE MAY BE ABLE TO NOT FILL SOME OF THOSE POSITIONS TO HELP US BRIDGE SOME OF THIS DEFICIT.

I DO WANT TO REMIND THE COMMUNITY AND THE GOVERNING BOARD THAT THE ORIGINAL RESERVE, PLANNED RESERVE SPEND DOWN WAS STRATEGIC.

THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT WE WERE AUTHORIZED BY THE GOVERNING BOARD TO DO IN ORDER TO BUILD THE DISTRICT, WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE WHEN WE REACH BASIC AID BEFORE WE REACH BASIC AID. I DO WANT TO MAKE A COMMENT ABOUT OUR PUBLIC SPEAKERS AND OUR STAFF.

WE VERY INTENTIONALLY BUILT SYSTEMS OF SUPPORT IN THIS DISTRICT.

AS A RESULT OF THE PANDEMIC.

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING ANYONE WANTS TO DO.

IT IS OUR OBJECTIVE TO FIND CREATIVE WAYS TO RESTORE THE SERVICES THAT WE INTENTIONALLY DESIGNED AND BUILT FOR OUR STAFF.

UNFORTUNATELY, THE SITUATION IN SACRAMENTO NECESSITATED US TO PLAN STRATEGICALLY AND ADHERING TO THE GOVERNING BOARDS FIDUCIARY RESPONSIBILITY TO THE COMMUNITY OF CORONADO.

I ALSO HAD A QUESTION ON SLIDE 20 WITH THE REPAYMENT.

IS THERE ANY REASON WHY THIS PAYDOWN WOULD CHANGE? I SEE THE PARENTHESES BASED ON A 4.5% ANNUAL GROWTH ASSUMPTION.

WITH THAT, IS THERE A POSSIBILITY THAT COULD CHANGE? AND WOULD THAT THEN CHANGE WHAT IS BEING PAID ON THIS AND CHANGE OUR TIMELINE? YES, YES.

SO THE THE TURBO REDEMPTIONS ARE BASED OFF OF A 4.4.

5% ANNUAL GROWTH ASSUMPTION.

IT'S BEEN TRENDING ANYWHERE BETWEEN 6 TO 9%.

AND THAT'S WHY WE'RE SEEING ON THE FAR RIGHT COLUMN NUMBERS ABOVE AND BEYOND WHAT THEY HAD PROJECTED AT THE 4.5%.

AND SO WHAT WE WHAT WHAT THIS NEEDS TO DO IS HAVE PREPAYMENTS ALL THE WAY TO THE RIGHT OF AT LEAST 23 MILLION IN ORDER FOR US TO ACCELERATE IT BY ONE YEAR.

WE'RE CURRENTLY SITTING AT 4.8 MILLION.

CAN I JUST FOLLOW UP ON THAT? SO SO REALLY THAT SLIDE, THIS IS REALLY MORE MACROECONOMICS AND PERHAPS ALSO SPECIFIC TO THE CORONADO REAL ESTATE MARKET.

YES. RIGHT. SO IF THERE IS A RECESSION OR A DOWNTURN IN OUR HOUSING MARKET, THEN WE MAY NOT MAKE THAT 4.5% ANNUAL GROWTH ASSUMPTION.

THAT'S CORRECT. OKAY.

ONE MORE QUESTION.

WHEN THE WHEN WE BECOME A BASIC AID DISTRICT, THE DISTRICT RECEIVES MONIES TWICE A YEAR FROM THE STATE.

IS THAT RIGHT? TWO TIMES A YEAR.

IS IT THE SAME TIME? IS IT? YES. SO WITH LCFF, WE RECEIVE ESSENTIALLY A MONTHLY PAYMENT FROM THE STATE UNDER BASIC AID FUNDING.

IT'S CONSISTENT WITH PROPERTY TAX COLLECTIONS.

SO TYPICALLY DECEMBER AND APRIL.

MAY. AND SO WILL WE HAVE ENOUGH? BECAUSE IF WE HAVE TO PRE HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY UNTIL WE GET OUR NEXT YES LUMP SUM THERE.

RIGHT. APPRECIATE YOU FOR ASKING THAT QUESTION.

AND I WANTED TO QUALIFY MY RESPONSE TO DOCTOR YOUNGBLOOD'S INITIAL QUESTION ON THIS SLIDE.

800,000 IS WHAT WE NEED IN ORDER TO NOT BE INSOLVENT IN 26-27.

THE STATE REQUIRES THAT WE HAVE A MINIMUM RESERVE OF 3%, WHICH IS ABOUT 1.7 MILLION.

SO AT A AT THE VERY LEAST WE NEED TO HAVE $2.5 MILLION IN RESERVES IN 2627.

IN RESPONSE TO TRUSTEE CAVANAUGH'S QUESTION, IT'S A MATTER OF CASH FLOWS INSTEAD OF THE MONTHLY PAYMENTS.

IN ORDER TO MEET MONTHLY PAYROLL, WE WILL HAVE PAYMENTS FROM THE STATE OR FROM PROPERTY TAXES TWICE A YEAR.

TYPICALLY, BASIC AID DISTRICTS NEED TO HOLD ABOUT 17 TO 18% IN RESERVES IN ORDER TO MEET BASIC MONTHLY CASH FLOW NEEDS.

SO WE WOULD NEED MORE MONEY IN 2627 JUST TO MEET THAT RESERVE REQUIREMENT.

DO THESE MEET THAT REQUIREMENT BEFORE WE BECOME BASIC AID? DO WE HAVE WOULD WE HAVE TO MEET THAT REQUIREMENT? WE WOULD HAVE TO MEET THAT REQUIREMENT IN ORDER TO MEET MONTHLY PAYROLL WITHOUT BORROWING.

[01:05:04]

OKAY. IF IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE WE'RE GOING TO MEET THAT REQUIREMENT, THEY'RE NOT GOING TO APPROVE OUR BUDGETS.

CORRECT. WHICH IS BAD.

WHICH WOULD BE BAD. AND AS A MATTER OF CONTEXT, WE ARE REQUIRED TO LOOK.

IT'S UNUSUAL THAT WE'RE PRESENTING A SLIDE WITH THIS MANY YEARS.

THE NEXT TIME THAT THE STATE WILL REALLY PAY ATTENTION TO 26, 28 IS THIS UPCOMING BUDGET CYCLE, WHERE WE'LL BE BUILDING A BUDGET FOR 24-25, 25-26, AND 27-28? THAT'S WHEN THE STATE AND THE COUNTY ACTUALLY HAVE THE ABILITY TO DISAPPROVE OUR BUDGET, ESSENTIALLY.

AND DO THESE ASSUMPTIONS INCLUDE PENDING NEGOTIATIONS? YES. ONLY INCLUDES SETTLEMENTS, TO DATE, WE HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO NEGOTIATE RAISES BEGINNING IN THE 24-25 FISCAL YEAR.

OKAY. THANK YOU.

AND I KNOW ENROLLMENT IS A CONSIDERATION.

IS ATTENDANCE A CONSIDERATION? DOES IT IMPACT THIS? ATTENDANCE IS A MAJOR DRIVER OF OUR FUNDING, NOT JUST ENROLLMENT.

SO WE'RE ACTUALLY FUNDED ON THE PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS THAT ACTUALLY ATTEND OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT UNDER BASIC AID, ATTENDANCE DOESN'T MATTER.

IT MATTERS FOR ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT AND PERFORMANCE, BUT NOT FOR FUNDING.

ANYTHING ELSE? THANK YOU, MR. SALAMANCA. THIS IS AN ACTION ITEM.

DO I HAVE A MOTION? I MOVE TO AUTHORIZE THE POSITIVE CERTIFICATION.

SECOND. CALL FOR THE VOTE, PLEASE.

MOTION PASSES.

ITEM 4.2.

[4.2 Approve Resolution No. 24-03-03, Establishment of Criteria for Order of Layoff and Reemployment Following Layoff of Employees with Same First Date of Paid Service in a Probationary Position]

APPROVE RESOLUTION NUMBER 24-03-03 THANK YOU, PRESIDENT PALACIOS-PETERS, I WOULD LIKE TO CALL UP OUR DIRECTOR OF HUMAN RESOURCES, MISS DONNA TRIPPI. BUT PRIOR TO THAT, I'D LIKE TO PROVIDE A LITTLE CLARIFICATION.

I WISH DANNY AND SEAN WERE STILL HERE.

THERE MAY BE SOME QUESTIONS AROUND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RESOLUTIONS.

AS WE LEARNED AT OUR LAST MEETING, THERE WAS A REQUEST FOR A COMMUNITY INTEREST RESOLUTION.

THE RESOLUTION REPRESENTED ON AGENDA ITEM 4.2, OUR BUSINESS OR OPERATIONAL RESOLUTIONS.

THOSE ARE REQUIRED BY STATUTE OR IDENTIFIED AND RECOMMENDED BY LEGAL COUNSEL AS A BEST PRACTICE TO MEMORIALIZE ACTION.

WHERE A COMMUNITY INTEREST RESOLUTION, WHICH WE REGULARLY RECEIVE TO ENDORSE RESOLUTIONS ON A VARIETY OF SPECIAL CAUSES THAT ARE OUTSIDE OF THE JURISDICTION OF THE GOVERNING BOARD, AS STATED IN OUR LAST MEETING.

HISTORICALLY, THE CUSD GOVERNING BOARD OPTS OUT TO ENCOURAGE BROADER COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT AND SPECIAL INTEREST ISSUES BY PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR INDIVIDUAL TRUSTEES. AS STATED EARLIER, A GROUP LETTER FROM OUR TRUSTEES.

AND ENGAGE OUR COMMUNITY DIFFERENTLY THAN THROUGH A COMMUNITY INTEREST RESOLUTION.

AS I INTRODUCED MISS TRIPPI, I JUST WANTED TO POINT OUT THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN A COMMUNITY INTEREST RESOLUTION AND A BUSINESS OR AN OPERATIONAL RESOLUTION.

MISS TRIPPI. OKAY.

ALL RIGHT. AT THE SPECIAL BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING ON MARCH 4TH, THE BOARD PASSED THREE RESOLUTIONS FOR REDUCTIONS IN FORCE OR LAYOFFS DUE TO THE BUDGET, PROJECTED BUDGET CONSTRAINTS, WHICH HAVE JUST BEEN GONE OVER.

SO THE RESOLUTION BEFORE YOU IS COMMONLY KNOWN AS THE TIE BREAKER RULE.

SO IF EMPLOYEES CERTIFICATED EMPLOYEES HAVE THE SAME FIRST DATE OF PAID SERVICE AND A PROBATIONARY POSITION, IT IS IMPORTANT FOR THE DISTRICT TO ESTABLISH CRITERIA FOR THE ORDER THAT THEY WILL BE CALLED BACK.

SO THE CRITERIA IN THIS RESOLUTION ENSURES THAT WE ARE ABLE TO RETAIN THE MOST QUALIFIED STAFF FOR OUR STUDENTS.

SO YOU'LL SEE THAT POINTS ARE AWARDED.

FOR WHAT? FOR WHAT? WE VALUE AS A DISTRICT A HIGHLY EDUCATED AND HIGHLY TRAINED STAFF.

SO POINTS ARE AWARDED FOR CREDENTIALS OR AUTHORIZATIONS THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE, WHICH GIVES US FLEXIBILITY OF ASSIGNMENTS AND THEN HIGHER EDUCATION AND YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, WHICH WILL GIVE US A HIGHLY TRAINED STAFF.

SO IT DOES ALSO PROVIDE FOR A LOTTERY PIECE OF IT.

SO IF AFTER WE AWARD POINTS TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE SAME DATE OF SERVICE, THEY ARE STILL EVEN THEN WE WOULD DO A LOTTERY TO DECIDE WHO COMES BACK FIRST. SO WE DO HAVE A COUPLE OF STAFF MEMBERS IN THIS POSITION FOR THIS YEAR.

SO IF WE GIVE THEM PERMANENT NOTICES IN MAY.

SO WE NEED THIS APPROVED.

ANYBODY HAVE QUESTIONS? IF I MAY. THANK YOU.

[01:10:01]

DID YOU CONSULT OR DRAFT THIS IN CONSULTATION WITH LEGAL? WITH LEGAL? YES.

ANY CONCERNS OR ANYTHING ABOUT IT BEING.

NO. WE ACTUALLY USE THEIR TEMPLATE THAT A LOT OF DISTRICTS USE.

SO WE GOT THE TEMPLATE FROM F3 AND WE UTILIZED IT.

WE MADE IT FIT FOR WHAT WE THINK IS IMPORTANT.

SO WE BELIEVE AND I BELIEVE AS WELL.

THIS IS LEGALLY SOUND AND NOT DISCRIMINATORY IN ANY WAY.

NO. OKAY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I USED IT VERY EFFECTIVELY IN RANCHO SANTA FE WHEN WE HAD LAYOFFS.

IT WAS VERY HELPFUL.

SO. OH.

DO WE HAVE ANY PUBLIC COMMENT ON THIS ITEM? HEY. GOOD EVENING, I'M LINDA COLEMAN, ACT GRIEVANCE CHAIR.

ON MONDAY, MARCH 3RD, I SAT IN THIS ROOM DURING A NON-TELEVISED SPECIAL BOARD MEETING AND LISTENED TO ACT PRESIDENT JENNIFER LANDRY EXPLAIN TO YOU WHY AGENDA ITEM RESOLUTION NUMBER 24-0303 IS DISCRIMINATORY.

AT THAT MEETING, YOU VOTED TO TABLE THE ITEM.

DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT SALAMANCA STATED THAT THE POLICY WAS NOT NEEDED AT THE TIME.

WE WERE NOT IN A POSITION WHERE TWO PROBATIONARY MEMBERS HIRED ON THE SAME DATE WERE BEING LAID OFF, AND DURING THE COMMENTS PERIOD, SUPERINTENDENT MUELLER NOTED THAT OTHER DISTRICTS ROLLED DICE OR PULLED NAMES OUT OF A HAT.

HE ALSO STATED, AND I'M PARAPHRASING, THAT HE HOPED THAT THE ITEM COULD BE DISCUSSED WITH ASSOCIATION LEADERSHIP TO COME TO AN AGREEMENT ON A POLICY.

NO CONVERSATION HAS TAKEN PLACE SINCE THE MARCH 3RD MEETING, YET THE ITEM IS BACK UP FOR APPROVAL TONIGHT.

WHY? THIS IS STILL A DISCRIMINATORY POLICY THAT HAS NOT CHANGED IN THE LAST 11 DAYS.

BASING WHO YOU ARE GOING TO LAY OFF AND WHO YOU ARE GOING TO KEEP ON, WHO CAN PAY THE MOST IN TIME AND MONEY FOR EXTRA CERTIFICATIONS, DEGREES, CREDENTIALS, ETC.

IS DISCRIMINATORY.

IT SHOWS THAT WE VALUE SOMEONE WITH MORE TIME AND MONEY OVER SOMEONE WITHOUT.

I ASK THAT YOU ONCE AGAIN TABLE THIS ITEM AND TAKE THE TIME TO HAVE A MEANINGFUL CONVERSATION ABOUT THE BEST WAY TO CREATE THIS PRACTICE.

GIVING A JOB TO THE RICHEST PERSON IS NOT HOW WE USUALLY DO BUSINESS.

WHY ARE WE STARTING THIS PRACTICE NOW? IS THAT WHO WE'VE BECOME? WE NEED TO DO BETTER.

THANK YOU.

DISCUSSION. I ASSUME THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME WE'VE DONE THIS TYPE OF DOCUMENT IN THIS SCENARIO.

I KNOW IT'S THE FIRST TIME FOR ME.

BUT WHAT TYPE? HOW HAVE WE DONE THESE RESOLUTIONS PREVIOUSLY WITH DETERMINING A TIEBREAKER? SO I'D ASK MISS TRIPPI TO COME BACK UP.

BUT AS PART OF THIS CONVERSATION I REGRET THAT THE SPECIAL BOARD MEETING WAS NOT TELEVISED.

THE EXAMPLES PROVIDED OF ROLLING A DICE OR FLIPPING A COIN WERE ONES THAT WERE PRESENTED TO ME BY ACT LEADERSHIP AS WHAT NEIGHBORING DISTRICTS HAVE ENGAGED IN.

AT THE TIME, WE FELT THAT THIS WASN'T NECESSARY STEP FOR US TO TAKE FOR THE EXISTING RESOLUTIONS.

HOWEVER, APPROVAL OF IT THIS EVENING PROVIDES US WITH THE MOST FLEXIBILITY TO TAKE ACTION.

AND THAT'S WHY WE'RE BRINGING IT BACK FORWARD.

I, I HAVE SOME, SOME QUESTIONS AND SOME CONCERNS ABOUT SOME OF THE COMMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE REGARDING THIS RESOLUTION THAT I WILL RESERVE FOR MY NEXT MEETING WITH THE ACT PRESIDENT.

BUT I WOULD LIKE TO NOTE THAT MANY OF OUR EMPLOYEES WORK HARD TO OBTAIN MASTER'S DEGREES, PHDS THAT THIS IS NOT A DISCRIMINATORY POLICY.

IT'S ACTUALLY A REFLECTION OF THE TIME AND EDUCATION THAT MANY OF OUR TEACHERS HAVE PUT INTO THEIR PROFESSION, IN THEIR CRAFT.

AND IT'S A MODEL THAT IS FOLLOWED IN OUR SALARY SCHEDULE, IN STEP AND COLUMN.

IF I COULD ASK MISS MCELLIGOTT, IF YOU COULD PUT UP THE THE RESOLUTION ITSELF, PERHAPS THE THE CRITERIA I DON'T KNOW IF YOU COULD ZOOM IN ON THAT OR.

YES. SO I MEAN, WHEN I LOOK AT THIS MISS TRIPPI I MEAN, IT LOOKS TO ME EMINENTLY OBJECTIVE IN THAT IN TERMS

[01:15:01]

OF CREDENTIALING PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS IN THE TOP LINE AND THEN SUPPLEMENTAL AUTHORIZATION AND THEN WHETHER OR NOT SOMEONE HAS A DOCTORATE OR MASTER'S AND THEN YEARS OF EXPERIENCE.

I MEAN, TO ME, THESE ARE ALL THINGS THAT WE SHOULD VALUE AS A SCHOOL SYSTEM IN BETTERMENT OF OUR MISSION WHICH, OF COURSE, IS TO PURSUE A HIGH QUALITY EDUCATION.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU IF YOU HAVE THOUGHTS ON THAT.

I HAVE THE SAME THOUGHTS. I MEAN, THESE ARE THE THINGS WE VALUE AS A DISTRICT.

THIS IS WHAT WE LOOK FOR WHEN WE HIRE.

WE LOOK FOR PEOPLE WITH ADVANCED DEGREES AND YEARS OF EXPERIENCE.

IT'S WHAT WE USE FOR ADVANCEMENT ON THE SALARY SCHEDULE.

THE MAJORITY OF OUR TEACHERS HAVE MASTER'S DEGREES, SO THEY FIND IT VALUABLE AND IMPORTANT.

I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY, WE'RE AN INSTITUTION OF EDUCATION.

WE FIND ADVANCED DEGREES VALUABLE AND IMPORTANT, AS WELL AS YEARS OF EXPERIENCE OUTSIDE OF OUTSIDE OF THE DISTRICT, BECAUSE THEY ARE OBVIOUSLY THESE PEOPLE WOULD HAVE YEARS OF EXPERIENCE INSIDE OF THE DISTRICT THAT ARE EXACTLY THE SAME.

SO LOOKING AT YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, THEY BRING TO US FROM FROM PRIOR TEACHING AND COUNSELING IS WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT FOUR YEARS OF EXPERIENCE.

SO YEARS IN THE PARTICULAR KIND OF SERVICE NARROWS IT DOWN, NOT JUST BUSINESS EXPERIENCE BEFORE TEACHING.

IT'S ACTUAL TEACHING EXPERIENCE OR COUNSELING EXPERIENCE IN THEIR AREA.

SO. I AGREE WITH TRUSTEE YOUNGBLOOD THAT IT LOOKS PRETTY OBJECTIVE TO ME.

I KNOW THAT HIGHER DEGREES WERE ASSOCIATED WITH HAVING MONEY TO GET THOSE DEGREES, BUT THEY'RE NOT THAT HEAVILY WEIGHTED HERE.

WHEREAS THE CREDENTIAL IS HEAVY, CREDENTIALS ARE HEAVILY WEIGHTED, AND YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, WHICH SEEM LIKE THE TWO PRETTY IMPORTANT THINGS TO ME, ARE THE MOST HEAVILY WEIGHTED ITEMS ON HERE. SO I'M NOT SURE I AGREE WITH THE ARGUMENT THAT MONEY EQUATES TO QUALITY OF OUR CREDENTIALS AND DEGREES FOR A TEACHER.

IT'S, I THINK THIS IS PRETTY OBJECTIVE.

THERE'S SO MANY OPPORTUNITIES NOW TO GET A MASTER'S DEGREE ONLINE AND WITH ALL OF OUR INSTITUTIONS, YOU KNOW, IN THE AREA.

SO, I MEAN, WE FIND THAT MOST OF OUR TEACHERS PURSUE MASTER'S DEGREES.

SO WE KNOW THAT THAT'S THE MAJORITY OF OUR TEACHERS.

SO THAT WILL PROBABLY PUT THEM ON THE SAME.

THEY'LL GET THE SAME POINTS FOR FOR THAT PIECE.

AND, IF I MAY, WITH REGARDS TO THE MASTER'S AND DOCTORATE DEGREE, I MEAN, OUR CURRENT SALARY SCHEDULE AS A TEACHER, YOU GET MORE MONEY, AND THAT'S THAT IS THAT'S IN OUR SALARY SCHEDULE, RIGHT? IT'S IN THE COLUMNS.

YEAH. SO YOU'RE YOU'RE GETTING ADVANCEMENT.

SO IN MANY WAYS, THIS SORT OF MIRRORS.

EXACTLY. RIGHT.

SALARY SCHEDULE. RIGHT.

I SHARE TRUSTEES, SANDIE AND YOUNGBLOOD' THOUGHTS ON THIS.

THIS, TO ME, IS APPEARS ON ITS FACE TO BE NOT DISCRIMINATORY, RATHER BASED ON MERIT AND AND EFFORT PUT FORTH TO EARN THESE DEGREES.

OF COURSE, WE'RE ALL SENSITIVE TO AN ACCUSATION THAT SOMETHING WE MIGHT VOTE TO DO COULD BE DISCRIMINATORY.

I REGRET THAT THERE WAS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR LEADERSHIP OF ACT AND DISTRICT LEADERSHIP TO MEET AND CONFER ON THIS.

IT'S BEEN A BUSY COUPLE OF WEEKS, I KNOW, ESPECIALLY FOR OUR HR DEPARTMENT.

I INTEND TO VOTE FOR THIS AND EVEN MOVE TO APPROVE IT, BUT I DON'T KNOW IF THERE'S APPETITE FOR THE REST OF THE BOARD TO TABLE IT UNTIL AFTER A BREAK TO SEE IF THERE'S ANY PRECEDENT THAT COULD BE BROUGHT FORTH TO SAY THAT SOMETHING LIKE THIS WOULD BE DISCRIMINATORY IF ACT HAS SUCH CASE PRECEDENT OR SOMETHING TO GIVE THEM A CHANCE TO SHOW US SOMETHING THAT MAYBE WE'RE MISSING.

BUT TO ME IT SEEMS VERY LOGICAL AND, AND IT'S ALSO CONSISTENT WITH CIVIL SERVICE PRACTICES IN TERMS OF PAY INCREASES FOR DEGREES AND OUR SALARY SCHEDULE AND EVERYTHING ELSE.

SO THAT WOULD BE MY ONLY THOUGHT IS IF WE WANTED TO GIVE IT UNTIL AFTER THE BREAK TO SEE IF THERE WAS SOMETHING THAT WE'RE MISSING.

BUT OTHER THAN THAT, OH, IT WAS.

AND AS YOUR QUESTION BEFORE, IT WAS PROVIDED BY LEGAL AS A TEMPLATE THAT IS USED IN MANY DISTRICTS THAT THEY WORK WITH.

RIGHT. OKAY. SO THAT THANK YOU.

THAT ANSWERS ALL MY QUESTIONS.

AND MY UNDERSTANDING IS THIS IS A DISTRICT AND SCHOOL BOARD DOCUMENT.

THIS ISN'T SOMETHING THAT IS NEGOTIATED OR NECESSARILY DONE IN TANDEM.

THIS IS OUR HIRING PRACTICES.

RIGHT. EXACTLY RIGHT.

SO I'D BE DISINCLINED TO TABLE THIS OR WAIT FOR ANYTHING THAT CAN BE, YOU KNOW, OBVIOUSLY AN ACTION TAKEN LATER.

I WOULDN'T DO IT MORE THAN TONIGHT.

[01:20:03]

RIGHT? I DON'T KNOW THAT WE NEED TO I'M PREPARED TO MOVE FORWARD AND HAVE A MOTION.

DID YOU HAVE A COMMENT? TRUSTEE CAVANAUGH? NO. OH, OKAY.

I THOUGHT HE POINTED. THANK YOU, MISS TRIPPI.

DO WE HAVE A MOTION ON 4.2? I MOVE THAT WE APPROVE THIS RESOLUTION AS PRESENTED.

I'LL SECOND. CALL FOR THE VOTE, PLEASE.

MOTION PASSES.

ITEM 4.3 ADOPT REVISIONS TO BOARD POLICIES, BOARD BYLAWS, ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATIONS, AND OR EXHIBITS.

[4.3 Adopt Revisions to Board Policies, Board Bylaws, Administrative Regulations, and/or Exhibits]

THANK YOU, PRESIDENT PALACIOS-PETERS I KNOW THE GOVERNING BOARD HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW BOTH OF THESE BOARD POLICIES.

AT OUR PREVIOUS BOARD MEETING.

AS FIRST READS, THESE TWO WERE REQUESTED TO ADD NEW LANGUAGE PRIOR TO APPROVAL.

I HAVE OUR DIRECTOR OF STUDENT SERVICES, MISS FOLEY, AVAILABLE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO NOTE THAT THE RECOMMENDED ADDITIONS TO BOTH OF THESE BOARD POLICIES WERE INCLUDED WITHIN THE DOCUMENTS.

MISS FOLEY IS AVAILABLE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MAY HAVE.

DO WE HAVE ANY PUBLIC COMMENT ON ITEM 4.3? TRUSTEES, ANY COMMENTS? I WILL SAY I DO APPRECIATE THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION TO ADOPT THE POLICY WITH MORE CONCISE LANGUAGE TO ENFORCE ASPECTS OF OUR DISCIPLINARY ACTION GUIDE.

AND I DID SEE, I'M NOT SURE IF IN THE PACKET THAT WAS POSTED, IF IT WAS BOLDED AS IT WAS FOR US LATER, BUT I BELIEVE THE LAST THREE PARAGRAPHS OF THE SECOND ONE, THE INTER DISTRICT ATTENDANCE AR 5117. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN JUST SPEAK TO THAT AND WHY THE STAFF RECOMMENDED ADDING THAT INTO THE IDT.

CERTAINLY. GOOD EVENING.

NICE TO SEE EVERYONE.

SO THE THE EXISTING LANGUAGE PRIOR TO THIS RECOMMENDATION LEFT OUT THE FACT THAT STUDENTS WHO HAVE GONE BEYOND THEIR 10TH GRADE YEAR AS AN INTERDISTRICT TRANSFER STUDENT MAY CONTINUE AND STAY IN OUR DISTRICT.

WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE STUDENTS, WHILE THEY STAY, ARE STILL SUBJECT TO THE TERMS OF OUR DISCIPLINE ACTION GUIDE, AND SO WE MADE SURE THAT WE CIRCLED BACK TO CLOSE THAT LOOP SO THAT WHILE WE WOULD HOPE THAT WE WOULDN'T HAVE INFRACTIONS IN OUR 11TH AND 12TH GRADE STUDENTS CERTAINLY IF WE NEEDED TO, THERE IS LANGUAGE THERE THAT PROTECTS THE DISTRICT, THAT WE MAY REVOKE AN INTERDISTRICT TRANSFER OR SHALL, IN THE CASE OF AN EXPULSION.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK ON THIS.

OF COURSE. THANK YOU.

I HAVE ONE JUST COMMENT.

COULD I ASK CAMI IF YOU COULD BRING UP PAGE 76 OR THE IT'S BOARD POLICY 0430 ABOUT THE SELPA.

I JUST WANT TO BRING THIS TO THE ATTENTION OF THE PUBLIC AND MAYBE SOME AUDIENCE MEMBERS THAT ARE HERE THIS EVENING.

THIS IS A CLARIFICATION OF AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT IN OUR SPECIAL EDUCATION LOCAL PLAN.

SO SELPA IS THE ACRONYM FOR THE ENTIRE SOUTH COUNTY'S COALITION OF SCHOOL DISTRICTS THAT WORKS TOGETHER TO FUND SPECIAL EDUCATION.

AND WHILE A COMMUNITY ADVISORY COMMITTEE CALLED THE CAC HAS BEEN REQUIRED BY STATE LAW, IT HAS BEEN A LITTLE CONFUSING HOW THE PROCESS WORKED.

AND SO THIS BOARD POLICY AND REVISIONS HELPED TO CLARIFY IT.

AND IT DOES ELUCIDATE THAT A PARENT GUARDIAN MEMBER OF THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE WILL BE SELECTED BY AN INTERNAL REVIEW COMMITTEE BY SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION BY APRIL 30TH, THAT APPLICATION WILL BE AVAILABLE ONLINE AND HAVE SOME REQUIREMENTS OF HAVING A CURRENT SPECIAL EDUCATION STUDENT IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, AND THEN CAN BE APPOINTED TO SERVE ON THIS VERY IMPORTANT COMMITTEE THAT ADVISES THE WHOLE SOUTH BAY SPECIAL EDUCATION, LOCAL PLAN PLANNERS ON WHAT REAL FAMILIES WITH STUDENTS AND SPECIAL ED NEED.

AND SO IT'S A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE YOUR VOICE HEARD TO GET INVOLVED.

AND YOU KNOW, I REALLY WANTED TO MAKE SURE YOU'RE AWARE OF THAT.

IT'S GOING TO BE ON OUR WEBSITE, I THINK, IN A COUPLE WEEKS, AND YOU CAN DO THE APPLICATION, AND WE'D LOVE TO SEE SOME PARENTS GET INVOLVED WITH THAT BECAUSE IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT. THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

DO WE HAVE A MOTION ON ACTION ITEM 4.3? I'LL MAKE A MOTION THAT WE ADOPT THE RESOLUTION.

IS THERE A SECOND? SECOND.

THANK YOU. CALL FOR THE VOTE PLEASE.

[01:25:15]

MOTION PASSES.

AND WITH THAT, I'M GOING TO CALL FOR A QUICK 5 TO 10 MINUTE BREAK BEFORE WE GET INTO REPORTS.

THANK YOU. OKAY.

WELCOME BACK. MOVING ON TO ITEM 5.1, ACT REPORT VICE PRESIDENT SANDIE DAVIS.

[5.1 ACT Report: Vice President Sandy Davis]

[5.2 Student Board Member Report: Wyatt Riebe]

RENEE. GOOD AFTERNOON.

I WILL START MY PRESENTATION OFF WITH THE HIGH SCHOOLERS.

WE JUST FINISHED UP OUR DINE BY THE SHORE WITH 2020 FOR A FUNDRAISER FOR OUR SENIOR CLASS THIS PAST SUNDAY.

THANK YOU, MADAM PRESIDENT, FOR PARTICIPATING.

IT WAS GREAT SEEING YOU THERE.

IT WAS A VERY SUCCESSFUL FUNDRAISER.

SO THANK YOU TO ALL COMMUNITY MEMBERS AND PARENTS WHO PARTICIPATED.

COMING UP, WE HAVE A FACULTY BASKETBALL GAME.

WE JUST HELD OUR DRAFT FOR THE TEACHERS THIS PAST WEEK.

THIS IS ONE OF OUR LARGER EVENTS OF THE SCHOOL YEAR.

IT'S WHERE THE TEACHERS PLAY.

THE TEACHERS ON THE BASKETBALL COURT.

IT'S A LOT OF FUN.

AND IT'S OPEN TO IT'S DURING THE SCHOOL DAY SO PEOPLE CAN COME AND WATCH THE EVENT.

IT'S IT'S A LOT OF FUN.

THE ISLANDER ADVISORY IS WORKING WITH THE MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS RIGHT NOW TO HELP THEM WITH THEIR CROSSOVER INTO GOING TO THE HIGH SCHOOL.

[01:30:03]

I THINK THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.

IT IT'S BIG FOR OUR EIGHTH GRADERS TO FEEL WELCOME AND SECURE WHEN THEY COME OVER TO THE HIGH SCHOOL.

SO THAT'S A VERY GOOD.

THE COSA DEPARTMENT HAS A LOT GOING ON.

FOR STARTERS, I'D LIKE TO SHOUT OUT CURRENT ALDRICH AND IZZY PRUDER FOR THEIR EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE AT THE SHAKESPEARE SPEAKING COMPETITION.

THEY CURRENTLY ARE IN NEW YORK CITY PRESENTING A SHAKESPEARE SPEAKING COMPETITION.

THEY WERE BOTH SELECTED HERE AT THE DISTRICT LEVEL, SO CONGRATULATIONS TO THEM.

COSA IS ALSO HOLDING THEIR SPRING RECITAL MARCH 27TH AT 6 P.M.

IN THE BLACK BOX THEATER.

SO MAKE SURE YOU'RE THERE AND I'D ALSO LIKE TO SAY CONGRATULATIONS TO ELEANOR MCCLELLAN FOR BEING SELECTED AS THE NATIONAL YOUTH DELEGATE FOR THE 2024 WASHINGTON YOUTH SUMMIT ON THE ENVIRONMENT.

SHE'S IN MY AP PHYSICS CLASS, AND SHE IS A TOTAL STUD.

SO CONGRATULATIONS TO ELEANOR.

I KNOW SHE'S GOING TO KILL IT.

I'D ALSO LIKE TO HIGHLIGHT OUR GIRLS LACROSSE TEAM.

THEY ARE KILLING THE OPEN DIVISION RIGHT NOW WITH A30 RECORD.

IF YOU GUYS HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO EITHER THE BOYS OR THE GIRLS GAMES IT IS PRETTY FUN TO WATCH THEM PLAY SOME LACROSSE.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL.

MOVING ON TO THE MIDDLE SCHOOL.

THEY JUST FINISHED THEIR MARCH MADNESS THIS PAST WEEK.

WHICH SEEMS LIKE IT WAS A LOT OF FUN.

I REMEMBER DOING THAT BACK IN EIGHTH GRADE.

SO THAT'S AWESOME.

WE ALSO GOT TO SEE THE NEWSIES PERFORMANCE BY THE APA WHICH IS COMING UP MARCH 22ND, AND THEY HAVE DRUG PREVENTION CONVENTION COMING UP THE 19TH.

THEY'RE ALSO BEGIN HAVE BEGUN PLANNING THEIR NEXT FUTURE DANCE.

AS FOR SILVER STRAND, THEY JUST HAD AN OPEN HOUSE ON LEAP DAY TO SHOW SOME OF THE PARENTS THE WORK THAT THE STUDENTS THERE ARE CREATING AND DISPLAYING THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT THEY HAVE ON CAMPUS.

AND THEY ALSO HAVE A PROGRAM GOING ON RIGHT NOW WHERE DIFFERENT TEACHERS ON THE CAMPUS CAN WATCH ONE ANOTHER, TEACH AND LEARN DIFFERENT STRATEGIES AND TECHNIQUES TO IMPLEMENT IN THEIR OWN CLASSROOM WHICH I THINK IS SUPER AWESOME.

AND THEY ALSO HAVE A PERFORMANCE FROM THEIR PERFORMING GROUP AT SILVER STRAND FROM THE LA JOLLA PLAYHOUSE POP TOUR WHICH IS GOING TO BE ABOUT A FIFTH GRADER CONNECTION TO THE GARDEN.

SO THAT IS COMING UP ON THEIR CAMPUS.

AS FOR VILLAGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL I AM GOING TO LEAVE THE THE LARGE PART OF MY REPORT TO PRINCIPAL KUHNS IN THE BACK.

WHO WILL WHO WILL FOLLOW ME? BUT I WOULD LIKE TO HIGHLIGHT I JUST MET WITH PRINCIPAL KUHNS EARLIER ON THIS WEEK, AND WE ARE BOTH WORKING TO DO MORE CROSSOVER BETWEEN THE MIDDLE SCHOOL, HIGH SCHOOL AND VILLAGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

IN LEARNING DIFFERENT LEADERSHIP STYLES THAT WE TAKE FROM OUR ASB AT THE HIGH SCHOOL TO THE MIDDLE SCHOOL AND TO OUR STUDENT COUNCIL THAT'S HELD AT THE VILLAGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

I'M VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS PROGRAM AND THE WORK THAT ME AND PRINCIPAL KUHNS ARE WORKING ON RIGHT NOW.

SO THAT CONCLUDES MY REPORT.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS? THANK YOU. HOW MUCH DID YOU ALL END UP EARNING AT THE DIME BY THE SHORE? SO WE EARNED JUST SO RIGHT NOW, WE ARE STILL WAITING TO HEAR BACK OF WHAT THE VENUE AND THE FOOD TOTAL COST CAME OUT TO BUT THE TOTAL PROFIT THAT WE MADE WAS UPWARDS OF $8,000, RIGHT? YEAH. GREAT.

AND YOU GUYS ARE GOING TO UNIVERSAL, RIGHT? CORRECT. WE WE ARE SELLING OUR GRAD GRAD NIGHT TICKETS UP UNTIL THE 28TH RIGHT NOW.

SO YES, UNIVERSAL IS HAPPENING.

WE'RE GOING HAVE FUN.

HAVE A BUTTER BEER FOR ME.

OKAY. WILL DO.

ALL RIGHT, MOVING ON TO ITEM 5.3 VILLAGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ANNUAL REPORT.

[5.3 Village Elementary School Annual Report: Principal, Peter Kuhns]

ARE YOU INTRODUCING SUPERINTENDENT MUELLER? THANK YOU, PRESIDENT PALACIOS-PETERS.

IT'S A PRIVILEGE TO INTRODUCE OUR FIRST YEAR PRINCIPAL AT VILLAGE ELEMENTARY, MR. PETER KUHNS.

THANK YOU, PRINCIPAL KUHNS.

ALL RIGHT.

THIS THING'S POWERFUL.

NICE. IT RAISES TWO IF YOU NEED IT, THOUGH.

THE WHOLE THING. OH, REALLY? OH, WOW. I'M NOT GOING TO GET THAT FANCY, BUT I THINK EVERYBODY CAN HEAR ME.

ALL RIGHT. SO, SUPERINTENDENT MUELLER, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, I'M PETER KUHNS.

[01:35:01]

I'M THE FIRST YEAR PRINCIPAL HERE AT VILLAGE ELEMENTARY.

AND I JUST WANTED TO YOU KNOW, TAKE THE TIME TO EXPRESS, LIKE, MY EXCITEMENT AND GRATITUDE ABOUT BEING AT THIS SCHOOL.

IT IS AN AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL SCHOOL FILLED WITH AMAZING CHILDREN, OUTSTANDING TEACHERS.

AND, YEAH, JUST WANTED TO REPORT ON HOW THINGS ARE GOING.

ALL RIGHT. SO FIRST THING.

SO CONNECTIONS TO THE MILITARY.

SO VILLAGE ELEMENTARY, AS YOU ALL KNOW SERVES MANY MILITARY FAMILIES STATIONED IN AND AROUND CORONADO.

AND THIS INCLUDES YOU KNOW, A LOT OF SUPPORTS THAT WE HAVE FOR THESE STUDENTS.

SO, FOR EXAMPLE, WE HAVE MILITARY FAMILY LIFE COUNSELORS, ANCHORED4LIFE FOR LIFE CLUB AND EXTENSIVE VETERANS DAY CELEBRATION.

SO THEY ARE A BIG PART OF OUR COMMUNITY.

WE LOOK TO SUPPORT THEM HOW WE CAN AND CELEBRATE THEM AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY THAT WE CAN AS WELL.

CONNECTIONS TO THE COMMUNITY.

SO WHEN YOU LOOK AT LIKE, WHAT IS A COMMUNITY SCHOOL? I THINK VILLAGE ELEMENTARY REALLY IS THE PORTRAIT OF THAT.

SO OUR FACILITY PROVIDES A TON OF SERVICES FOR STUDENTS IN THE COMMUNITY IN ADDITION TO THEIR EDUCATION.

SO FOR EXAMPLE, WE HAVE A PRESCHOOL CLASSROOM.

WE HAVE BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL CHILD CARE SERVICES THROUGH CHAMPIONS.

WE HAVE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH PROVIDED TO ALL STUDENTS, A VARIETY OF AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS HAPPENING THROUGHOUT OUR CAMPUS, COUNSELING SERVICES AND SUMMER SCHOOL.

IN OTHER WORDS, LIKE THERE'S A LOT GOING ON AT VILLAGE EVERY SINGLE DAY, AND WE REALLY ARE ONE OF THE MAIN HUBS TO SERVICE CHILDREN IN OUR COMMUNITY.

AND THAT'S SOMETHING THAT NOT ONLY WE TAKE SERIOUSLY, BUT WE ALSO TAKE PRIDE IN DOING IT AT A VERY HIGH LEVEL.

AND THEN ALSO JUST IN TERMS OF COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS, WE WORK CLOSELY WITH OUR PARTNERS WITH THE CSF, OUR PARENT TEACHER ORGANIZATIONS, THE FIRE DEPARTMENT, THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, CORONADO LIBRARY TO INCORPORATE CURRICULUM, SERVICES AND EXPERIENCES THAT OUR FAMILIES VALUE.

SO REALLY, JUST THIS COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS IS WHAT MAKES VILLAGE SUCH A STRONG PLACE TO TO HAVE YOUR CHILD GO TO.

SO WHAT WE'RE ABOUT, YOU KNOW, IN TERMS OF, YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU WALK ONTO OUR CAMPUS, WE'RE CURRENTLY AT OUR FOUR EXPECTATIONS, RIGHT? THINGS THAT WE EXPECT FROM STUDENTS ON A DAILY BASIS BEING SAFE, BEING RESPECTFUL, BEING RESPONSIBLE AND BEING KIND.

YOU KNOW, WE HAVE EXPLICIT LESSONS WHERE WE TEACH THESE THINGS.

THEY'RE REINFORCED IN CLASSROOMS AND THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL, AND WE HOLD STUDENTS ACCOUNTABLE FOR MAINTAINING THESE EXPECTATIONS.

WE ARE GOING TO TRANSITION THIS TO THE SEVEN HABITS THROUGH LEADER IN ME.

THIS IS A SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING CURRICULUM, ALSO A PROGRAM FOR WHOLE SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT, WHICH I'LL GET TO LATER, BUT IT'S CENTERED AROUND MOVING TO THE SEVEN HABITS.

SO I KNOW MANY OF YOU PROBABLY READ STEPHEN COVEY'S SEVEN HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE.

THIS IS SORT OF A TRANSLATION TO STUDENTS IN A WAY THAT IS APPROPRIATE FOR OUR YOUNG MINDS.

SO WE HAVE SEVEN HABITS.

BEING PROACTIVE, BEGINNING WITH THE END IN MIND.

PUTTING FIRST THINGS FIRST, THINKING WIN WIN, SEEKING FIRST TO UNDERSTAND, THEN BE UNDERSTOOD, SYNERGIZE, AND SHARPENING THE SAW.

I'VE INTRODUCED SOME OF THESE PROGRAMS AT MY PREVIOUS SCHOOLS AND SEEN REALLY, REALLY GOOD INVESTMENT NOT ONLY FROM THE STUDENTS BUT ALSO FROM THE STAFF AS WELL.

REALLY SORT OF GROUNDING OURSELVES IN THESE VALUES NOT ONLY OF PERSONAL IMPROVEMENT BUT ALSO INTERPERSONAL COMPETENCE.

SO THINGS THAT WE LOOK TO SEE AND DEVELOP IN ALL OF OUR STUDENTS.

ALL RIGHT. SO SOME NUMBERS THAT I THINK YOU'RE ALL FAMILIAR WITH.

BUT ENROLLMENT AND DEMOGRAPHICS IN TERMS OF 2022 TO 2023, WE ACTUALLY SAW ONE AROUND A 100% GROWTH IN ENROLLMENT.

AND THAT WILL BE REFLECTED IN SOME OF THE STAFFING ON THE NEXT SLIDE.

SO THIS IS A BIG SCHOOL.

AND THIS ALSO DOESN'T INCLUDE PRESCHOOL AS WELL.

AND SO REALLY WE ARE ABOVE 800 STUDENTS AT THIS POINT SORT OF GOING IN AND OUT ON A DAILY BASIS.

SO AS I SAID, THERE'S A LOT GOING ON IN TERMS OF STUDENT AND STAFF STATISTICS.

I'LL GIVE YOU JUST A MINUTE TO REVIEW THIS SLIDE.

THEY'VE REMAINED RELATIVELY CONSISTENT OVERALL.

AND SO NOTHING REALLY TO NOTE THERE.

EXCEPT FOR OUR CERTIFICATED TEACHERS, AS WITH AN INCREASE IN STUDENT ENROLLMENT THAT OBVIOUSLY TRANSLATE TO AN INCREASE IN NOT ONLY CERTIFICATED BUT ALSO TO CLASSIFIED TO SUPPORT THESE STUDENTS.

ALL RIGHT. SO NOW WE'RE GOING TO SHIFT BACK INTO THE PREVIOUS SCHOOL YEAR BECAUSE I WANTED TO PRESENT DATA THAT I THINK YOU AND THE COMMUNITY CARE ABOUT.

AND SO THESE WERE OUR GOALS FOR 2023- 024 OR EXCUSE ME, THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN 2022 TO 2023.

BUT WE HAD SO FOR THE GOALS THAT I CAME IN WITH AND SORT OF INHERITED, THESE WERE THE THINGS AND I WANT TO PRESENT HOW WE DID IN RELATION TO THOSE.

SO VILLAGE ELEMENTARY SEEKS TO ENSURE THAT STUDENTS RECEIVE INDIVIDUAL, SMALL AND WHOLE GROUP INSTRUCTION BASED ON THEIR ACADEMIC STRENGTHS, NEEDS AND PERSONAL INTERESTS AND ASPIRATIONS. THE GOAL THAT WAS GOING TO BE GOING INTO THIS YEAR WOULD BE A 1% INCREASE FROM THE 21 AND 2022 CAPS DATA, ALSO SEEKING TO ENSURE COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS BETWEEN AND AMONG ALL CORONADO UNIFIED SHAREHOLDERS.

AND THEN THIS IS MAKING SURE THERE WERE TWO REAL SORT OF ACTIONS THAT WE COULD USE TO EVIDENCE.

THIS ONE IS MAINTAINING 98% OF PARENTS PARTICIPATING IN PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES AND MAINTAINING A 400 PLUS WEEKLY READS ON THE VILLAGE NEWSLETTER.

[01:40:08]

WE HAVE AROUND 390 ISH FAMILIES.

AND SO, YOU KNOW, WE TRACK TO SEE, LIKE, ARE PEOPLE READING THE THINGS THAT WE'RE, WE'RE GOING OUT TO MAKE SURE THAT COMMUNICATION IS CONSISTENT.

WE DON'T WANT TO UNDER COMMUNICATE, BUT WE ALSO DON'T WANT TO OVER COMMUNICATE.

BECAUSE WHEN YOU OVER COMMUNICATE, PEOPLE JUST REALLY STOP LISTENING.

AND SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE'VE DONE IS A WEEKLY NEWSLETTER.

YOU KNOW, THAT SENT OUT VIA EMAIL AND TEXT SO THAT PARENTS CAN GET IT.

I'M SORRY, ALEXIA, IF YOU KEEP GETTING TEXTS YOU KNOW, IT'S SORT OF RANDOM TIMES DURING THE WEEKEND.

BUT WE YEAH, WE REALLY WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE LINES OF COMMUNICATION STAY OPEN.

AND THEN ALSO FINALLY OUR THIRD AND AGAIN, OUR SPSA GOALS ARE ALIGNS TO OUR LCAP GOALS.

BUT MAKING SURE THAT THE DISASTER PREPAREDNESS PLAN ALIGNS WITH YOU KNOW, CORONADO UNIFIED DISTRICT MASTER PLAN AND MAKING SURE ALL OF THOSE THINGS ARE IN ALIGNMENT.

HARD EVIDENCE THAT BESIDES THE DOCUMENT.

BUT I THINK THAT YOU CAN FIND THAT ON OUR WEBSITE, BUT WE'RE PRETTY, PRETTY SOLID THERE.

ALL RIGHT. SO IN TERMS OF, EXCUSE ME, ACADEMIC DATA FOR CAASPP ELA IF YOU NOTICE ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THE COLORS ARE IMPORTANT AND INTENTIONAL BECAUSE ONE OF THE THINGS I WANT YOU TO DO IS WE CALL IT COHORT TRACKING.

SO HOW DOES THAT SAME GROUP OF STUDENTS DO FROM 2021 TO 2022 INTO 2023? YOU KNOW, I WON'T GO INTO THE MINUTIA AND THE CURRICULUM HERE.

THAT WAS ALSO BROUGHT UP BY JENNY MOORE AT SILVER STRAND.

WE DO ALMOST IDENTICAL PROGRAMS. BUT I WILL GO INTO JUST SORT OF OVERVIEW ONE YOU KNOW, WE DID SEE SOME GROWTH IN THE FIFTH GRADE COHORT FROM 2021 TO 2022 AND THEN TO 2023. SO SOME GROWTH THERE.

BUT OVERALL YOU KNOW, UNDERPERFORMING IN MOST SUBGROUPS.

AND WE DID SEE A DIP. SO IF YOU SORT OF FOLLOW IT DIAGONALLY, BUT ALSO FROM YEAR TO YEAR NOT TRENDING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

AND THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT THAT WE'RE GOING TO IMPROVE.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I'M ADAMANT ABOUT AS PRINCIPAL IS THAT WE DON'T EXPLAIN AWAY DATA.

WE OWN IT, WE LOOK AT IT AND WE WORK TO GET BETTER.

AND THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS I WANT TO EXPLAIN TO YOU AS A BOARD.

IS THAT SOMETHING I'M COMMITTED TO IS INSTRUCTIONAL IMPROVEMENT FOR ALL OF OUR STUDENTS.

SO HOW ARE WE GOING TO DO THAT? TWO THINGS THAT ARE HIGHLIGHTED IN YELLOW HERE.

ONE IS INCORPORATION OF MONTHLY PLCS TO IMPROVE TEACHING AND LEARNING FOR NEXT SCHOOL YEAR.

THESE ARE REALLY STRUCTURES WHERE TEACHERS COLLABORATE TOGETHER.

THEY HAVE A HALF DAY RELEASE, AND THEY'LL BE ABLE TO SET INSTRUCTIONAL GOALS, LOOK AT HOW THEIR STUDENTS ARE DOING, AND WORK TOGETHER TO IMPROVE INSTRUCTION THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR, AND THEN A CONTINUATION OF HIGH LEVERAGE INSTRUCTIONAL LEADERSHIP FOR ALL TEACHING STAFF.

IF YOU HAVE REVIEWED SORT OF HOW EVALUATIONS GO, RIGHT, OUR PROBATIONARY EMPLOYEES ARE EVALUATED EVERY YEAR.

BUT THEN ONCE THEY MOVE ON TO PERMANENT STATUS, YOU KNOW, IT'S SORT OF ONCE EVERY FEW YEARS.

AND I'M A FIRM BELIEVER IN YOU KNOW, NOT EVALUATIVE, BUT ALSO SUBSTANTIAL CONVERSATIONS ABOUT INSTRUCTIONAL PRACTICE.

AND SO SOME OF THE TEACHERS ARE PROBABLY LIKE, WHY IS HE IN MY CLASSROOM ALL THE TIME? AND LIKE, WHY ARE WE HAVING CONVERSATIONS ABOUT INSTRUCTION? AND SO REALLY IT IS INTENTIONAL.

IT'S ONE OF THESE THINGS WHERE IT'S NOT MEANT TO BE EVALUATIVE OR TO BE STRESSFUL, BUT REALLY JUST TO ENGAGE THE TEACHERS IN CONVERSATIONS ABOUT TEACHING AND LEARNING.

HOW ARE THINGS GOING? HOW CAN I WORK WITH EVERYBODY TO HELP REACH OUR GOALS AND HELP IMPROVE INSTRUCTION? SO THOSE ARE TWO THINGS THAT WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO DO.

IN TERMS OF ACADEMIC DATA IN TERMS OF SO FOR MATH IF YOU FOLLOW IT DIAGONALLY AS WELL, SIMILAR TREND THAT, YOU KNOW, WE WANT TO SEE THAT REVERSED, RIGHT? WE WANT TO SEE IMPROVEMENTS IN INSTRUCTION ON A YEAR OVER YEAR BASIS.

WE DO HAVE MATH INTERVENTION AND WE DO HAVE SIGNIFICANT TIER TWO SUPPORTS.

BUT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I'VE NOTICED IS YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES TIER TWO SUPPORTS CAN GET IN THE WAY OF REALLY HIGH QUALITY TIER ONE INSTRUCTION.

THE TEACHERS HAVE BEEN COMING UP TO ME AND SAID, LIKE, LISTEN, PETE YOU KNOW, THESE STUDENTS THAT ARE PULLED FOR TIER TWO DURING THESE SPECIFIC TIMES THAT WE HAVE DURING OUR.

IT WOULD BE REALLY, REALLY GREAT IF I COULD WORK ON THEM ON SOME OF THAT GRADE LEVEL CONTENT.

AND SO I'M REALLY LOOKING AT OUR MASTER SCHEDULE TO FIGURE OUT, YOU KNOW, WHERE COULD WE HAVE SOME OF THAT TIME FOR CONSISTENT TIER TWO SUPPORT WHEN NECESSARY, BUT NOT NECESSARILY HAVE IT COME AT THE EXPENSE OF HIGH QUALITY TIER ONE INSTRUCTION.

AND REALLY SOME OF THAT FEEDBACK THE TEACHERS COULD BE GIVING TO THE STUDENTS ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS.

SO FOR EXAMPLE YOU KNOW, JOHNNY IS STRUGGLING IN MATH CLASS DOESN'T HAVE A GREAT LESSON.

THAT DATA IS THEN ANALYZED BY THE TEACHER.

THEN DURING THE NEXT WIN TIME.

WHAT I NEED THAT BLOCK OF TIME, THE TEACHER IS THEN ABLE TO LOOK AT HOW JOHNNY IS DOING AND ADDRESS IT IMMEDIATELY AND CLOSE THAT FEEDBACK LOOP INSTEAD OF WAITING, YOU KNOW, 4 OR 5 WEEKS FOR THE DATA TO BECOME EVIDENT AND THEN FOR THE STUDENT TO BE PULLED FOR INTERVENTION.

SO REALLY, THE NAME OF THE GAME IS TO CLOSE THAT INSTRUCTIONAL FEEDBACK LOOP QUICKLY.

AND THAT'S GOING TO BE ONE OF OUR INTENTIONS MOVING INTO NEXT YEAR.

SO MORE FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT.

[01:45:01]

HOW ARE WE CLOSING THAT FEEDBACK LOOP QUICKLY.

AND THEN ALSO IN ADDITION TO ELA.

SO MONTHLY PLCS IS A TOOL THAT WE CAN USE TO IMPROVE INSTRUCTION.

AND ALSO HIGH LEVERAGE INSTRUCTIONAL LEADERSHIP CONVERSATIONS WITH ALL TEACHING STAFF.

ALL RIGHT. CAST SCIENCE DATA.

THIS ONE YOU CAN READ SORT OF ACROSS THE BOARD.

AGAIN, THE DATA SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.

IT NEEDS TO GET BETTER.

AND WE ARE GOING TO WORK ON THAT.

SO YOU KNOW, NOT ONLY HAS THE DISTRICT INVESTED IN A STEM TOSA TO REALLY SORT OF LOOK AT INSTRUCTION, HELP ALIGN IT TO SOME OF THE NEW NGSS TEACHING STANDARDS, AND ALSO OUR ILAB TEACHER, TONY TRINIDAD.

SO WHAT WE'RE REALLY A LITTLE BIT MORE ALIGNED ACROSS THE BOARD IN TERMS OF TEACHERS TEACHING SCIENCE.

BUT THEN ONE OF THE THINGS I NOTICED IS JUST IN TERMS OF SCIENCE AND SOCIAL STUDIES INSTRUCTION, SOMETIMES WHERE IT FALLS ALONG THE SCHOOL DAY.

RIGHT? IT'S ALWAYS AT THE END RIGHT NOW.

AND TEACHERS WILL TELL YOU, LIKE, STUDENTS ARE QUITE LITERALLY AT THE END OF THEIR ROPE AT THE END OF THE DAY.

AND SO WE'RE GOING TO TRY AND SHIFT SOME THINGS TO MAYBE HAVE IT EARLIER IN THE DAY AND SHIFT SOME THINGS AROUND.

SO THAT WAY, YOU KNOW, NOT ONLY ARE STUDENTS A LITTLE BIT MORE FRESH AND ALERT TO BE RECEIVING SOME OF THIS IMPORTANT INSTRUCTION, BUT THEN ALSO HAVING IT WHEELED AS WELL.

I WASN'T A FULL TIME ELEMENTARY TEACHER, I WAS I TAUGHT IN ELEMENTARY AND I DID BASICALLY LIKE A STEM TEACHER.

SO I SAW ALL GRADE LEVELS.

BUT I CAN ONLY IMAGINE, AS AN ELEMENTARY TEACHER, HAVING TO TEACH ALL 4 OR 5 SUBJECTS A DAY CAN BE QUITE STRENUOUS.

AND SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I WANT TO INCORPORATE, WE CALL IT A WHEEL OR SORT OF A ROTATION WHERE STUDENTS WILL BE, WHERE TEACHERS WILL BE ABLE TO SPECIALIZE IN TEACHING EITHER SCIENCE OR SOCIAL STUDIES OR WRITING.

AND THEN THE STUDENTS WILL SORT OF LIKE IN A MIDDLE SCHOOL, RIGHT? THEY'LL GO TO DIFFERENT CLASSROOMS TO RECEIVE THAT INSTRUCTION.

SO THE INTENTION IS TO MAKE IT EASIER ON THE TEACHERS TO MAKE SURE THAT CONSISTENT INSTRUCTION INSTRUCTION IS HAPPENING AT A HIGH LEVEL FOR STUDENTS AND THAT ALSO, FRANKLY, STUDENTS ARE ABLE TO RECEIVE THAT INSTRUCTION AT A TIME IN THE DAY THAT IS A LITTLE BIT MORE BENEFICIAL.

SO THAT'S A PLAN THERE.

ALL RIGHT, ENGLISH LEARNER DATA.

IN TERMS OF GOOD DATA, WE'RE LOOKING AT YOU KNOW, FOR ENGLISH LEARNERS WHO ARE YOU KNOW, TO BE HONEST, A VULNERABLE GROUP OF STUDENTS THAT, YOU KNOW, REALLY NEEDS TO BE SUPPORTED THROUGH OVER TIME.

THIS IS ACTUALLY A REALLY POSITIVE TREND TO SEE FROM 2022 TO 2023.

SO THE GOAL FOR ENGLISH LEARNERS IS YOU WANT THEM TO DEVELOP ONE ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEVEL PROFICIENCY PER YEAR.

SO LOWEST TO HIGHEST ONE, TWO, THREE AND FOUR, ONE BEING THE LOWEST, FOUR BEING THE HIGHEST.

YOU SHOULD SEE YOU KNOW YEAR OVER YEAR MOVING IN 1 TO 2, 2 TO 3, 3 TO 4 AND THEN FOUR.

THEY RECLASSIFY AS FLUENT IN ENGLISH.

AND SO YOU'LL NOTICE IN THE PURPLE HERE WE HAD A BIG INCREASE IN STUDENTS WHO ARE PROGRESSING AT LEAST ONE ELD LEVEL.

AND THE GOAL HERE IS TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS IS ALL PURPLE RIGHT.

AND SO THAT'S SOMETHING WE'RE CONTINUING TO WORK ON.

BUT GOOD TO SEE THAT THERE'S PROGRESS THERE.

ATTENDANCE DATA.

YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE KEY THINGS THAT WE LOOK AT AS A SCHOOL IS CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM RATE.

AND THIS WAS FOR THE 2022-23 SCHOOL YEAR, SO LAST ONE.

CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM WAS AT 11.8%, AND IT'S ACTUALLY, YOU KNOW, SORT OF HOVERED AROUND THAT LEVEL FOR THIS SCHOOL YEAR AS WELL.

THAT'S MUCH HIGHER THAN WE WANT IT TO BE.

AND PRESENTS AN ISSUE NOT ONLY BECAUSE WE'RE FUNDED BY AVERAGE DAILY ATTENDANCE.

RIGHT. SO STUDENTS MISSING SCHOOL AFFECTS OUR REVENUES.

BUT THEN ALSO JUST IMPACT ON LEARNING, RIGHT? WE KNOW AND THE DATA IS VERY, VERY CLEAR THAT STUDENTS WHO ARE CHRONICALLY ABSENT NOT ONLY HAVE REDUCED EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES, BUT A LOT OF TIMES REDUCED OVERALL LIFE OUTCOMES AS WELL. RIGHT? AND THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE REALLY WANT TO ADDRESS.

AND SO WE DO SEND REGULAR ATTENDANCE LETTER HOMES TO FAMILIES.

WE HAVE START MEETINGS AT WHEN NECESSARY TO TRY AND, YOU KNOW, REALLY GET THE FAMILY TO UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING THEIR KID ATTEND SCHOOL CONSISTENTLY.

IT'S ALWAYS DONE IN A SOLUTION ORIENTED WAY, LIKE, WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP YOU? OR WHAT RESOURCES CAN WE PROVIDE YOU TO HELP MAKE SURE THAT JOHNNY'S COMING IN AND GETTING HIS EDUCATION? AND THEN ONE OF THE THINGS I'M BRINGING UP TO OUR SCHOOL LEADERSHIP TEAM IS POSSIBLY ATTENDANCE, INCENTIVES AND RECOGNITION AND RECOGNIZING STUDENTS WHO ARE SHOWING UP CONSISTENTLY FOR THE 2024 AND 25 SCHOOL YEAR.

BUT ONE OF THE THINGS I'M ALWAYS SORT OF CONFLICTED ON THIS IS BECAUSE SOMETIMES IT CAN RESULT IN UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES, RIGHT? YOU DON'T IF JOHNNY IS SICK.

RIGHT? BUT THERE'S AN ATTENDANCE INCENTIVE, RIGHT? YOU DON'T WANT HIM COMING TO SCHOOL AND GETTING MORE KIDS SICK.

SO YOU KNOW, IT'S IT'S A LITTLE BIT NUANCED THERE, BUT WE DO WANT TO RECOGNIZE AND CELEBRATE AND TRY AND INCENTIVIZE STUDENTS COMING TO SCHOOL.

ALL RIGHT. SO PROGRESS TOWARDS OUR GOALS FROM OUR PREVIOUS SCHOOL YEAR.

SO AGAIN THE GOAL WAS A 1% INCREASE IN CASPASE DATA.

THIRD GRADE NOT MET, FOURTH GRADE PARTIALLY MET, BUT OVERALL NOT MET.

[01:50:02]

I'VE BEEN TRYING TRYING TO BE CLEAR THAT WE NEED TO BE BETTER.

AND WE WILL BE. IN TERMS OF OUR COMMUNICATION GOAL IN TERMS OF 98% PARTICIPATING IN PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCE, THAT GOAL WAS MET AND 400 WEEKLY READS ON THE NEWSLETTER ALSO MET.

SO IT'S GOOD TO SEE THAT PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE ARE READING WHAT WE'RE SENDING OUT.

AND THEN IN TERMS OF OUR EMERGENCY DISASTER PREPAREDNESS PLAN, WE ACTUALLY GOT TO YOU KNOW, USE IN REAL TIME IN JANUARY.

THAT WAS ALSO THAT WAS ALSO MET.

SO NOT ONLY DO WE HAVE A SOLID PLAN, BUT THEN WE ALSO WERE ABLE TO EXECUTE SOME OF THESE THINGS REALLY IN A FLOOD THAT WE HAVEN'T PRACTICED.

SO I WANTED TO SHARE JUST HOW PROUD I AM OF ALL OF MY STAFF AND STUDENTS THAT DAY.

YOU KNOW, HOW WE RESPONDED TO THAT EMERGENCY WAS REALLY, REALLY IMPRESSIVE.

ALL RIGHT, SO SOME HIGHLIGHTS HERE.

YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MAKES ME REALLY PROUD TO BE AT VILLAGE IS I GET TO BE IN CLASSROOMS EVERY DAY AND SEE THE AMAZING WORK THAT OUR TEACHERS ARE DOING WITH OUR STUDENTS. SO THERE ARE, YOU KNOW, SOME THINGS I WANT TO POINT OUT.

I KNOW FIFTH GRADE DOES A GENIUS HOUR OR A PASSION PROJECT WHERE STUDENTS GET TO TAKE THE TIME TO EXPLORE SOMETHING THAT THEY'RE PASSIONATE IN AND THEN CREATE A PROJECT AND A PRESENTATION AROUND IT? THERE ARE SO MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR HANDS ON LEARNING.

ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT THERE.

WE HAVE OUR MISSION PROJECT WHERE STUDENTS GET TO CREATE A MISSION YOU KNOW, THAT'S TIED TO THE CALIFORNIA HISTORY STANDARDS.

WE HAVE A LOT OF RIGOROUS AND DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION ALSO HAPPENING TO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I'VE BEEN BLOWN AWAY BY WITH THE TEACHERS IS THEIR ABILITY TO TARGET WHAT EXACTLY WHAT THE KIDS NEED AND PROVIDE THAT INSTRUCTION TO THEM.

AND THAT'S HAPPENING THROUGH OUR WIN TIME, BUT ALSO THROUGHOUT THE DAY.

SO KIDS ARE STAYING ENGAGED AND GETTING THEY'RE GETTING EXACTLY WHAT THEY NEED.

AND THEN LASTLY, ONE OF THE THINGS I THINK THAT THIS IS WORTH STATING WHAT I'VE BEEN MOST IMPRESSED WITH IS JUST HOW MUCH OUR TEACHERS CARE ABOUT OUR STUDENTS.

YOU KNOW, THEY REALLY GO ABOVE AND BEYOND IN EVERY CLASSROOM THAT I OBSERVE ON A DAILY BASIS SHOWING NOT ONLY THEIR PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCE, BUT THEN ALSO THEIR ABILITY TO, YOU KNOW, THAT THEY CARE ABOUT THEIR STUDENTS.

THEY KNOW SO MUCH ABOUT THEM, THEY KNOW THEIR NEEDS, AND THEY WORK REALLY HARD TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE RELATIONSHIPS ARE STRONG.

AND THAT IS WHAT I THINK IS IS THE BIGGEST ASSET OUR TEACHERS AND ALSO THE CONNECTION THAT THEY MAKE TO THEIR STUDENTS.

SO SPSA GOALS FOR 2023-2024.

SO I KNOW IT'S WE'RE SORT OF IN A WEIRD TIME, RIGHT? BECAUSE IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE FOR LIKE THIS CURRENT SCHOOL YEAR.

BUT THESE ARE DUE IN APRIL AND I THINK WE'RE REVISING IT.

SO THAT WAY IT'S A LITTLE IT FLOWS A LITTLE BIT MORE LOGICALLY, BUT WE ARE STILL GOING TO HAVE REVISED GOALS AROUND CAASPP ELA, MATH CAASPP AND ELPAC PROGRESS.

THOSE ARE REALLY FOUR METRICS THAT I'M CUED IN ON AND MAKING SURE THAT WE HAVE IMPROVEMENTS THERE.

LCAP COMMUNICATION.

SO IF YOU NOTICE, THEY'RE TIED TO OUR LCAP GOALS IN TERMS OF OUR COMMUNICATION GOALS, I REALLY WANT TO MAKE THIS AROUND COMMUNITY BUILDING AND MAKING SURE THAT VILLAGE CONTINUES TO BE A COMMUNITY SCHOOL AND THAT THESE COMMUNITY BONDS ARE STRENGTHENED WITH OUR PARENTS.

OUR PARENTS ARE SUCH AN ASSET AND PARTNERS IN THEIR EDUCATION, AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT, YOU KNOW, WE'RE BRINGING THEM IN, MAKING THAT CONNECTION AND USING THEM AS REALLY AS A PARTNER IN THEIR CHILD'S EDUCATION.

AND THEN IN TERMS OF SAFE AND SUPPORTIVE SCHOOLS WHERE STUDENTS AND STAFF THRIVE, LEADER IN ME REALLY DOES HAVE A FRAMEWORK FOR WHOLE SCHOOL IMPROVEMENTS.

AND ALSO, YOU KNOW, TO MAKE SURE THAT STUDENTS ARE DEVELOPING THE CHARACTER THAT WE'RE LOOKING TO SEE WITH THEM AS WELL AS THEIR INTERPERSONAL COMPETENCIES.

SO INITIATIVES FOR NEXT YEAR, LEADER IN ME IMPLEMENTATION, FOCUSING ON SOME TIER TWO BEHAVIOR INTERVENTIONS THROUGH AN AUGMENTED SST PROCESS, WE NOTICED THAT SOME THINGS ARE SORT OF FALLING THROUGH THE GAPS IN TERMS OF, YOU KNOW, SUPPORTS THAT WE PROVIDE STUDENTS.

WE'VE TARGETED IT, AND WE'RE CREATING A PLAN TO HELP SUPPORT SOME KIDS THAT THAT NEED A LITTLE BIT MORE HELP.

MONTHLY PROFESSIONAL LEARNING COMMUNITIES TO SET INSTRUCTIONAL GOALS AND IMPROVE TEACHING AND LEARNING.

INSTRUCTIONAL ROTATIONS LIKE A WHEEL TO IMPROVE SCIENCE INSTRUCTION.

AND, YOU KNOW, MONTHLY COMMUNITY BUILDING COMMUNITY BUILDING EVENTS AT VILLAGE.

RIGHT. SO YOU REALLY DON'T HAVE TO GO OUT.

I KNOW, LIKE WE'RE KNOWN FOR OUR, YOU KNOW, HUGE VETERANS DAY CELEBRATION.

AND WE HAVE JOGATHON THINGS LIKE THAT, BUT REALLY JUST MONTHLY THINGS TO BRING PARENTS IN, TO BRING THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER AND MAKE SURE THAT VILLAGE CONTINUES TO BE THE STRONG COMMUNITY SCHOOL THAT IT IS.

AND SO, YOU KNOW, I JUST WANT TO END OFF WITH A DIRECTION LIKE WHERE WE'RE GOING WITH ME HERE.

THIS IS THIS IS WHAT GUIDES ME ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS.

SO IT'S WHERE STUDENTS FEEL LOVED, ACCEPTED AND EXCITED TO LEARN.

WHERE 100% OF STUDENTS PERFORM ON GRADE LEVEL ON ALL SUBJECTS AND INDIVIDUAL LEARNING GOALS, WHERE ALL STAFF FEEL VALUED, EMPOWERED, AND SUPPORTED.

AT WORK, WE'RE GOING TO COMPARE OURSELVES TO OURSELVES, BUT WE WILL BE THE BEST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY THAT EMBODIES EXCELLENCE AND EVERYTHING THAT I DO.

THAT'S MY COMMITMENT TO YOU AS A BOARD TO OUR STUDENTS AND TO OUR COMMUNITY AS A WHOLE.

SO THANK YOU. BEFORE TRUSTEE COMMENTS, DO WE HAVE ANY PUBLIC COMMENT ON

[01:55:07]

THIS ITEM? TRUSTEES.

ANY COMMENTS? QUESTIONS? OH, DO YOU HAVE A PUBLIC COMMENT? PUBLIC COMMENT. OKAY, COME ON UP TO THE MICROPHONE.

YOU CONTINUE TO USE THE WORD ADVOCATE.

THANK YOU PETER. YEAH I KNOW IT'S WHAT WE'RE ABOUT.

YEAH. THAT WAS DEFINITELY LESS THAN THREE MINUTES.

THANK YOU. OKAY.

WELL I'LL START. I LOVE THE COMMUNITY BUILDING EVENTS IDEA.

I HAVE SPENT SOME TIME GOING AROUND TO THE DIFFERENT SCHOOLS, AND I THINK PTOS ARE IMPORTANT TO THE SCHOOLS, BUT WE DEFINITELY HAVE LOW ATTENDANCE ACROSS THE BOARD, I THINK.

AND SO I THINK SOMETHING LIKE WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT MAY BUILD THAT RELATIONSHIP AND THE INVESTMENT OF PARENTS IN THE SCHOOL AND COMING INTO THE SCHOOL, I THINK ESPECIALLY IN ELEMENTARY, WHERE PARENTS WANT TO BE INVOLVED.

SO HAVING THOSE OPPORTUNITIES, I THINK IS GOING TO BE REALLY HELPFUL AND WE KNOW PARENT INVOLVEMENT WILL ALSO HELP WITH ACADEMICS AND ATTENDANCE AND EVERYTHING FROM THERE.

SO YEAH. THANKS, ALEXI.

AND ONE OF THE THINGS I JUST SORT OF NOTICED IS LIKE WE ASK A LOT OF OUR PARENTS, I KNOW THEY DONATE TO CSF, THEY DONATE TO OUR [INAUDIBLE].

AND ONE OF THE THINGS I WAS LIKE, OKAY, SO YES, WE'RE ASKING A LOT OF THEM.

WE'RE VERY GRATEFUL FOR THEIR SUPPORT, BUT WHAT CAN WE ALSO DO TO SHOW OUR GRATITUDE TO THAT, BUT THEN ALSO CREATE LIKE WHAT CAN VILLAGE DO TO HELP, YOU KNOW, HAVE COMMUNITY EVENTS TO BE AN ASSET TO THE COMMUNITY? SO THAT'S THAT'S SOMETHING I'M LOOKING TO DO.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE PRESENTATION, PRINCIPAL KUHNS.

THE WHAT I'M AWARE OF AND I KNOW YOU ARE UNDERLYING EVERYTHING YOU'RE TELLING US IS EVIDENCE BASED PRACTICES AND AND INSTRUCTIONAL PEDAGOGY.

AND, YOU KNOW, I SEE I READ IEPS FOR A LIVING, YOU KNOW, I MEAN, I, I KNOW WHERE THIS IS COMING FROM.

AND I'M SO ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT YOUR DEPTH OF KNOWLEDGE AND YOUR IMPLEMENTATION PROCESSES AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT YOU'RE COMMITTING TO AND REALLY BRINGING OUT THE BEST IN OUR, OUR TEAM AND OUR KIDDOS.

SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HOW IT GROWS FROM HERE.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR PRESENTATION.

THE LEADER IN ME PROGRAM.

IS THAT SOMETHING THAT YOU'RE KIND OF DIPPING YOUR TOES INTO A LITTLE BIT THIS YEAR TO REALLY ROLL OUT NEXT YEAR? AND WHAT HAS STAFF RESPONSE BEEN TO TO THAT PROGRAM? YEAH. RENEE. THAT'S AN EXCELLENT QUESTION.

SO THIS IS WE'VE SORT OF PILOTED IT THIS YEAR.

IT WAS ONE OF THE THINGS WHERE I KNOW DOCTOR BURGENER SORT OF BROUGHT TEACHERS TO LOOK AT YOU KNOW, THE PREVIOUS YEAR.

AND THERE WERE THERE WAS SOME POSITIVE MOMENTUM GOING THERE.

IT WAS SORT OF SERENDIPITOUS.

BUT, YOU KNOW, I WAS WORKING ON IT AT MY PREVIOUS SCHOOL.

AND SO WHEN I TALKED TO TEACHERS, I SAID, LIKE, YOU KNOW, NOT GOING TO FORCE YOU TO DO ANYTHING, BUT IF THIS IS SOMETHING, YOU KNOW, IF WE'RE LOOKING FOR A ROBUST SEL CURRICULUM, YOU KNOW, THAT ALSO SORT OF EXTENDS TO WHOLE SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT.

LIKE THIS IS SOMETHING TO TRY OUT.

I THINK THAT STAFF REACTION HAS FOR THE TEACHERS THAT HAVE BEEN DOING IT HAS BEEN, YOU KNOW, FAIRLY POSITIVE.

I THINK, YOU KNOW, THE FIRST YEAR, A LOT OF WORKING OUT THE KINKS, TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT.

BUT THEN ALSO KNOWING THAT, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF IT IS JUST LIKE WE NEED, YOU KNOW, WE MAY NEED TO DO SOME OF THESE THINGS OVER AGAIN OR, YOU KNOW, NOW, NOW THAT WE'VE DONE IT YOU KNOW, WE KNOW HOW TO DO IT BETTER NEXT TIME.

SO BUT OVERALL, WHEN I TALK TO MY STAFF, PRETTY POSITIVE.

AND THEN KNOWING THAT IT WILL CONTINUE TO GET BETTER AS, AS WE DEVELOP LESSONS NEXT TIME, IT'S LIKE BEING A TEACHER, RIGHT? IT'S LIKE FIRST, FIRST GO AROUND LIKE, OH, I WISH I SHOULD HAVE DONE X, Y, AND Z, BUT NEXT GO AROUND, I GOT IT.

THANK YOU. AND THEN THE WIND TIME THAT YOU HAVE, HOW OFTEN IS THAT? AND IS ARE THE ACTIVITIES SELF-SELECTED BY THE STUDENT LIKE, YOU KNOW, THE TEACHER MIGHT SAY, YEAH, WHAT YOU NEED IS MATH.

BUT WHAT I WANT TO DO IS SOMETHING ELSE.

SO THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION.

SO ONE OF THE THINGS I'VE ACTUALLY BEEN REALLY PROUD OF, A LOT OF THE GOALS THAT THE GRADE LEVEL TEAMS DEVELOPED AROUND WIND TIME.

SO TO ANSWER YOUR FIRST PART OF YOUR QUESTION, YES, IT HAPPENS EVERY DAY FOR ABOUT 45 MINUTES.

AND THIS IS THIS IS ALSO A TIME WHERE TIER TWO INTERVENTIONS AND SOME TIER THREE INTERVENTIONS ARE HAPPENING AS WELL.

SO IF THEY'RE PULLED OUT FOR SPECIAL EDUCATION SERVICES OR READING OR MATH INTERVENTION THAT HAPPENS DURING THIS TIME.

BUT THEN ONE OF THE THINGS I'VE BEEN PROUD OF TEACHERS WORKING WITH IS THEY HAVE SORT OF THEY CALL THEM LIKE THEIR MUST DO'S AND THEIR MAY DO'S.

SO IT'S SORT OF PRIORITIZED FOR STUDENTS ALREADY, BUT REALLY IN TERMS OF GETTING STUDENT OWNERSHIP OVER THEIR OWN LEARNING, HAVING STUDENTS LOOK AT THEIR OWN DATA AND THEN PRIORITIZING EXACTLY WHAT THEY NEED TO DO.

SO NOT ONLY LIKE THESE ARE ASSIGNMENTS THAT ARE DUE AT THE END OF THE WEEK OR LIKE, HEY, YOU KNOW, THIS IS HOW I DID ON MY PREVIOUS MATH TEST.

THIS IS WHERE EXCEL IS SHOWING I NEED TO GROW.

SO I'M GOING TO TAKE THE INITIATIVE AND I'M GOING TO SPEND X, Y, AND Z AMOUNT OF TIME WORKING ON THIS GOAL THAT I'VE SET FOR MYSELF.

SO TEACHERS ARE DOING A GREAT JOB OF BEING TRANSPARENT ABOUT STUDENT DATA.

STUDENTS REALLY STARTING TO TAKE OWNERSHIP OF THESE THINGS.

[02:00:02]

AND THEY'RE REFLECTING IN JOURNALS AS WELL.

SO THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS I'VE BEEN PROUD OF.

VERY NICE. GREAT. THANK YOU.

I HEARD ABOUT THE YOUR WHEEL CLASSES.

SO IS THAT SOMETHING THAT YOU'RE LOOKING TO IMPLEMENT IN THE FUTURE, IN THE FALL? AND THEN MY MY NEXT QUESTION WAS GOING TO BE ABOUT WHAT TEACHERS WOULD BE SPECIFICALLY TEACHING LIKE, IS IT JUST MATH AND SCIENCE, OR IS THERE ENGLISH IN THERE TOO? AND IF YOU COULD ELABORATE ON? YEAH, WHY. THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION.

SO WE'RE WORKING THROUGH THIS RIGHT NOW.

THE COMMITTEE THAT IS DOING A MASTER SCHEDULE REVISE.

AND SO I THINK IT'S MOST APPROPRIATE FOR GRADES THREE THROUGH FIVE.

SO I THINK THAT'S WHERE WE'RE GOING TO START.

I DID OFFER THE INVITATION FOR ALL GRADE LEVELS TO CONSIDER IT BUT FOR THIRD THROUGH FIFTH GRADE, REALLY YOU KNOW, THEY WOULD HAVE AND SORT OF HOW IT WORKS OUT IN THE SCHEDULE IS KIND OF COMPLICATED, BUT WE'D HAVE ONE TEACHER THAT TEACHES SCIENCE, ONE TEACHER THAT TEACHES SOCIAL STUDIES.

AND THEN POTENTIALLY BECAUSE IT'S A REALLY IF THERE ARE FOUR TEACHERS, RIGHT, AND YOU HAVE A TWO AND TWO SWAP, IT'S EASY, BUT WITH AN ODD NUMBER IT GETS A LITTLE, LITTLE TRICKY. SO ONE TEACHER POTENTIALLY TEACHING WRITING.

SO WE'D HAVE IF THERE ARE FIVE CLASSES WHICH THERE ARE NOW CURRENTLY IN ALMOST ALL GRADE LEVELS, YOU WOULD HAVE SO YOU'D HAVE A PAIR, RIGHT.

ONE TEACHER TEAM TEACHING SCIENCE, ONE TEACHER TEACHING SOCIAL STUDIES.

AND THEN THOSE CLASSES FLIP FLOP.

BUT THEN FOR THE REST OF THEM, FOR THE THREE TEACHERS THAT ARE LEFT, YOU'D HAVE A THREE WAY WHEEL.

SO SCIENCE, SOCIAL STUDIES AND WRITING AND THEN YOU'D HAVE THAT.

WE'LL TAKE ABOUT 90 MINUTES FOR THEM TO GO THROUGH BOTH OF THEM IN ORDER TO, TO BE ABLE TO EFFECTIVELY WIELD THAT.

AND SO I THINK FOR SCIENCE AND SOCIAL STUDIES INSTRUCTION SINCE WEDNESDAY IS A SHORT DAY, HARD TO FIT IT IN, BUT IT WOULD BE TWO DAYS SCIENCE, TWO DAYS SOCIAL STUDIES LIKE A MONDAY, TUESDAY, A THURSDAY, FRIDAY.

BUT THEN IF THAT THREE WAY WHEEL WRITING WOULD ALSO BE INCORPORATED SO THEY, THEY'D SHIFT THAT WAY.

AND IS THIS SOMETHING THAT YOU'RE LOOKING TO ROLL OUT IN THE, IN THE FALL.

YES. OKAY.

WONDERFUL. THANK YOU..

VERY.. FINISHED.

YEAH. SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH, PRINCIPAL KUHNS, FOR YOUR PRESENTATION.

I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD SPEAK TO, IT'S IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU'VE YOU'VE CERTAINLY BEEN BRINGING THIS UP AND MENTIONING THIS, BUT IN TERMS OF INVOLVING THE FACULTY IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE GOALS FOR THE SCHOOL AND, AND, AND GETTING AS MUCH BUY IN AS POSSIBLE IN SETTING AND THEN ACHIEVING THE GOALS. AND SO I THINK, YOU KNOW, ABSOLUTELY, STAFF BUY IN IS SOMETHING THAT I TRY AND, AND DO AS BEST AS I CAN.

SO I THINK, YOU KNOW, AS A LEADER, IT'S MY JOB TO SORT OF SET LIKE VISION AND DIRECTION FOR THE SCHOOL.

BUT I TELL MY STAFF EVERY TIME I MEET WITH THEM, YOU KNOW, I DO THINGS WITH YOU, NOT TO YOU OR FOR YOU.

RIGHT? AND SO REALLY GETTING THEIR PERSPECTIVE OF LIKE, THESE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS WE'RE CONSIDERING, WHAT CAN IT LOOK LIKE.

AND SO EVERY TIME DECISIONS ARE MADE EITHER THROUGH OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM OR FOR EXAMPLE, THIS MOST RECENT LIKE MASTER SCHEDULE REVISE, IT'S DONE IN CONJUNCTION WITH TEACHERS.

AND THEN THAT COMMUNICATION OF LIKE, YOU KNOW, HERE'S SOME OF THE THINGS THAT LIKE COULD BE IMPROVED IN OUR SCHOOL.

HERE'S SOME OF THE IDEAS THAT WE BROUGHT TO THE TABLE, LIKE HOW CAN WE WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE SURE THAT THESE SHIFTS ARE HAPPENING? SO YOU KNOW, I THINK YOU REALLY LEVERAGING THAT TEACHER VOICE THERE HELPS BUILD BUY IN.

ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT SOMETIMES BUYING ALWAYS ISN'T AT 100% BUT AT THE SAME TIME, YOU KNOW, CLEARLY COMMUNICATING THE WHY BEHIND THESE THINGS INVOLVING TEACHERS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THEM.

AND THEN, YOU KNOW, LIKE ALSO SOLICITING FEEDBACK AND APPROVING.

SO. WELL, THANK YOU.

I CERTAINLY APPRECIATE THAT SENTIMENT.

AND I KNOW, I KNOW PREVIOUSLY, AND I ALSO APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT YOU RECOGNIZE THAT THERE'S OPPORTUNITY FOR IMPROVEMENT AND SETTING AND SETTING GOALS TO TRY TO ADDRESS THAT.

SO I APPRECIATE THAT, AND I KNOW PREVIOUSLY I'VE SPOKEN ABOUT INNOVATIVE WAYS TO TRY TO INCENTIVIZE YOU KNOW, IMPROVEMENT IN RESULTS, ETC..

AND BUT IT COMES, IT COMES FROM THAT SORT OF MOTIVATION.

SO I APPRECIATE EVERYTHING THAT YOU'VE BEEN DOING FOR THAT.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

ABSOLUTELY. ALL RIGHT. THANKS, GUYS.

[5.4 Learning Department Report: Senior Director of Learning, Dr. Megan Battle]

ITEM 5.4, LEARNING DEPARTMENT REPORT.

DOCTOR MEGAN BATTLE, DID YOU WANT TO INTRODUCE? YES. AS DOCTOR BATTLE MAKES HER WAY UP TO THE PODIUM, I'M JUST WANT TO REMIND THE GOVERNING BOARD THIS IS A REPORT.

THERE'S NO ACTION ATTACHED TO THIS REPORT.

THIS WAS A REQUEST BY THE GOVERNING BOARD TO TAKE A LOOK AT, AS WE'RE READING THROUGH CSBCA AND OTHER STATEWIDE INITIATIVES, SOME DISTRICTS ARE TAKING A CRITICAL LOOK AT THE ROLE OF THE STUDENT TRUSTEE.

AND WE WANTED TO PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR GOVERNING BOARD TO KIND OF DISCUSS EXISTING PRACTICES.

ANY INFORMATION OR COMMENTARY THAT COMES OUT OF THIS DISCUSSION WILL BE TAKEN BY STAFF TO PRINCIPAL MOLINA, TO THE ASB DIRECTOR MISS BELONG, AND TO THE

[02:05:07]

STUDENTS, SO I ANTICIPATE A FOLLOW UP DISCUSSION WITH THE GOVERNING BOARD AT A FUTURE MEETING.

THIS EVENING IS REALLY JUST PRELIMINARY THREE THEMES THAT I WAS REQUESTED TO BRING FORWARD.

AND DOCTOR BATTLE WILL BE AVAILABLE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

SORRY IF I JUST GAVE YOU A REPORT.

JUST READ MY PREAMBLE HERE.

YEAH, TO MY REPORT.

DOCTOR BATTLE. THANK YOU.

GOOD EVENING, GOVERNING BOARD.

AS REQUESTED BY THE BOARD, THIS REPORT REVIEWS THE CURRENT PROCESS RELATED TO APPOINTMENT OF OUR STUDENT BOARD MEMBER.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT CUSD IS IN COMPLIANCE WITH ED CODE AND ALSO CURRENT BOARD POLICY REGARDING STUDENT BOARD MEMBERS AND HOW THEY'RE APPOINTED. I KNOW YOU'VE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW THE REPORT, AND WE WILL PAUSE FOR ANY DISCUSSION AND QUESTIONS. DO WE HAVE ANY PUBLIC COMMENT ON ITEM 5.4? TRUSTEES. SO THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I'VE BEEN REALLY EXCITED ABOUT. MY MY MAIN INTENTION FOR THIS THIS YEAR WAS INCREASING STUDENT VOICE.

AND SO WANTED TO TAKE A LOOK AT THIS, ESPECIALLY AFTER THE CSBA CONFERENCE WHERE WE SAW SOME REALLY AMAZING AND INSPIRING STUDENT TRUSTEES LIKE OUR AMAZING ASB PRESIDENT. SO AFTER REVIEWING ALL THIS, I GUESS I WOULD LIKE TO ASK PUT YOU ON THE SPOT, MR. REVIE, AND ASK YOU WHAT YOUR THOUGHTS ARE ON POSSIBLY ADDING, I GUESS MY QUESTION WOULD BE POSSIBLY ADDING A SECOND STUDENT TRUSTEE. I HAVE BEEN THINKING A LOT, AND AFTER READING THE REPORT, I HAVE TO SAY I WOULD BE MOVED TO PUT ANOTHER PERSON UP HERE WITH ME AS STUDENT REPRESENTATION OF THE HIGH SCHOOL.

I THINK IT'S A WONDERFUL IDEA.

I THINK THAT WHILE I REPRESENT A LOT OF THE STUDENT BODY THROUGH ASB AND MY LEADERSHIP CLASS AND ALL THE SPORTS THAT I PARTICIPATE IN AND THE DIFFERENT THINGS I'M INVOLVED IN, I THINK ANOTHER STUDENT THAT HIGHLIGHTS THE THINGS THAT I MIGHT NOT BE PRIVY TO THE INFORMATION OF OR YOU KNOW, A SMALLER SUBSET OF STUDENTS THAT I MIGHT NOT REPRESENT FULLY.

THAT VOICE WOULD BE A GREAT THING TO HAVE ON THIS BOARD.

JUST CURIOUS.

BUT YOU'RE DOING YOU'RE DOING A GREAT JOB.

BUT HOW WOULD YOU ACTUALLY, SO IN IN ORDER TO TRY TO SELECT SOMEONE WHO MIGHT BRING OUT A DIFFERENT VOICE OR EXPERIENCE, HOW WOULD YOU ACTUALLY SELECT THAT PERSON OR HOW WOULD THAT PERSON BE SELECTED BY THE STUDENT BODY, ETC.? FANTASTIC QUESTION.

THAT THAT HONESTLY HAS BEEN SORT OF THE THING THAT HAS BEEN TOUGH TO COME UP WITH IN MY MIND.

SO CURRENTLY WE HAVE COSA.

COSA IS SOMETHING THAT IS NOT SUPER REPRESENTED IN OUR ASB CLASS.

WE HAVE A COUPLE ASB MEMBERS THAT ARE IN OUR COSA DEPARTMENT.

HOWEVER, THEIR LEADERSHIP IS NOT WELL REPRESENTED IN OUR LEADERSHIP CLASS.

HOWEVER, COSA DOES ALSO HAVE THEIR OWN PRESIDENT AND THEIR OWN OFFICER YOU KNOW, THEIR OWN OFFICERS.

AND I BELIEVE THAT IF THE PRESIDENT OF THE COSA DEPARTMENT WERE TO SIT UP ON THE BOARD, WE WOULD HAVE TWO VERY DIFFERENT BUT VERY HELPFUL YOU KNOW, OPINIONS AND POINTS OF VIEW ON DIFFERENT THINGS THAT ARE BEING PROPOSED AT THE BOARD.

SO WITH ALL THAT BEING SAID, I BELIEVE THAT IT COULD BE EASY AS JUST SAYING THAT THE PRESIDENT OF THE COSA DEPARTMENT COULD ALSO BE THE, YOU KNOW, THE PERSON ON THIS BOARD.

AS THIS AS A SENIOR, YOU'RE REALLY BUSY WITH FINISHING UP YOUR YEAR.

HOW BENEFICIAL DO YOU THINK IT WOULD BE IF THE SECOND STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE WERE FROM THE JUNIOR CLASS? I THINK THAT IS A GREAT IDEA.

THE ONE THE ONE THING THAT THAT I MIGHT STRAY AWAY FROM, THAT IS I WAS A JUNIOR LAST YEAR.

AND A LOT OF THE THINGS THAT, YOU KNOW, WE WENT THROUGH AS JUNIORS.

I ARE FRESH ON MY MIND, AND NOW I'M A SENIOR, AND I'M OPEN TO A WHOLE NOTHER APPLYING TO COLLEGES SCHOLARSHIPS.

AND SO THERE'S A LOT THAT A JUNIOR MIGHT NOT FULLY REPRESENT.

SO IF THERE WERE TWO SENIORS THAT WERE BOTH JUNIORS ONCE, I COULD SEE THAT HAVING A LOT OF MERIT.

HOWEVER, THAT BEING SAID A JUNIORS DO ALSO HAVE A LOT GOING ON.

IT'S THE IN MY OPINION, IT'S THE MOST ACADEMICALLY CHALLENGING YEAR AT HIGH SCHOOL FOR ME PERSONALLY.

[02:10:04]

AND I THINK A LOT OF OTHER STUDENTS WOULD FEEL THE SAME WAY.

SO ADDING ON A POSITION ON THIS BOARD MIGHT NOT BE THE BEST AND WISEST DECISION FOR SOMEONE, BUT I DO THINK THAT THERE WOULD BE SOME GREAT REPRESENTATION THERE.

YEAH. I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION.

SO WITH RESPECT TO YOUR, YOUR JOB OR MAYBE THE TURNOVER YOU GOT COMING INTO THIS POSITION I UNDERSTAND THE ASB CLASS IS,IS 90 MINUTES A DAY, RIGHT.

SO AND YOU WOULD TAKE THAT AS THE PRESIDENT, YOU WOULD TAKE THAT FOR THE YEAR, IS THAT CORRECT? CORRECT. SO WE EVERY EVERY DAY WE HAVE EXCEPT WEDNESDAY, 70 MINUTES WE HAVE 90 MINUTES OF INSTRUCTION IN THAT TIME IS FOR ASB LEADERSHIP.

YEAH. RIGHT.

SO AS YOU COME IN AND YOU'RE THE PRESIDENT ELECT OF THE STUDENT BODY AND YOU GET YOU'RE GETTING THE TURNOVER.

WHAT HOW IS IT SORT OF VIEWED COMING HERE TO THE BOARD MEETING AND SITTING ON THE BOARD AND, AND ALL THAT.

HOW IS THAT VIEWED IN TERMS OF LIKE HOW THAT FITS IN, IN THE IMPORTANCE LEVEL OF WHAT EVERYTHING YOU'RE DOING AS BOARD PRESIDENT, ARE YOU IS IT JUST LIKE, HEY, YOU GOT TO GO TO THIS MEETING ONCE, ONCE A MONTH AND JUST SIT THERE AND OR YOU KNOW WHAT? WHAT HOW IS IT VIEWED? SURE. I THINK THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION.

SO I THINK IT ALSO IT DEPENDS ON FROM ASB PRESIDENT TO ASB PRESIDENT.

SOME COMING INTO THIS ROLE.

BY THE WAY, I'M SPEAKING FROM READING PREVIOUS PASS DOWN BINDERS.

IT'S MY DOCUMENT THAT'S GIVEN TO ME BY THE PREVIOUS ASB PRESIDENT.

AND IT INCLUDES ALL THE PREVIOUS DOCUMENTS FROM PRIOR PRESIDENTS.

SO THAT'S, THAT'S WHAT I'M SPEAKING ON.

AS FOR THE INFORMATION BUT EACH INCOMING ASB PRESIDENT VIEWS DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF THEIR JOB DIFFERENTLY.

I PERSONALLY, I REALLY I LOVE GOING TO THESE MEETINGS.

IT GIVES ME A SORT OF A BEHIND THE SCENES VIEW.

AND I FEEL LIKE THE COMMENTS THAT I'M MAKING AND THE, AND THE RETURNS OF STATEMENTS THAT I'M GETTING ARE LEGITIMATE AND REAL.

AND A LOT OF THE OTHER STUFF IS IT'S THE FUN PART OF THE JOB, I WOULD SAY.

SO, LIKE, YOU KNOW, GOING TO PEP RALLIES AND YOU KNOW, LEADING MY, MY SCHOOL SPIRIT SECTION AT VARIOUS EVENTS AND HOLDING THE OTHER SIDE OF MY ROLE IS THE MORE FUN ASPECT OF MY OF MY ROLE AS ASB PRESIDENT.

SO THAT BEING SAID, THIS IS SORT OF TO SOME ASB PRESIDENTS, A DRAG, RIGHT? IT'S A LONG MEETING MULTIPLE HOURS OUT OF MY THURSDAY TALKING ABOUT THE BUDGET.

THAT TO ME, YOU KNOW, IS HARD TO UNDERSTAND.

AND BUT I, I PERSONALLY FIND IT INTERESTING, BUT OTHERS MAY SEE IT DIFFERENTLY.

SO IN THE FUTURE, I THINK HAVING TWO MEMBERS YOU KNOW, SAY THE ASB PRESIDENT NEXT YEAR ISN'T AS APT TO THESE MEETINGS, BUT THAT OTHER REPRESENTATIVE THAT'S ELECTED IS REALLY ABOUT IT.

AND GETS REALLY INVESTED.

I COULD SEE THAT BEING A HUGE POSITIVE.

OKAY. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HONESTY.

YEAH. ONE MORE THING I MIGHT ADD IS ON TOP OF PERCHANCE THE THE COSA DIRECTOR BEING OR THE COSA PRESIDENT BEING THE OTHER MEMBER, I THINK ANOTHER THING COMING UP IS OUR ASB ELECTIONS FOR BOTH EXCOM MY POSITION, THE VICE PRESIDENT.

ALL THAT IS COMING UP SOON.

AND I THINK ADDING A POSITION ON THIS BOARD WOULD NOT BE OUT OF THE QUESTION.

YEAH. I THINK THE TOUGH, TOUGH QUESTION IS, YOU KNOW, WHERE THAT STUDENT WOULD COME FROM.

WE TALK A LOT ABOUT COSA, BUT THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT DEMOGRAPHICS THAT COULD BE UNDERREPRESENTED.

AND THE ONE THAT COMES TO MY MIND IS MILITARY.

AND WE'RE WE'RE FORTUNATE THAT WYATT HAS THAT EXPERIENCE, BUT NOT NECESSARILY EVERY ASB PRESIDENT DOES.

AND I THINK WE HAVE STUDENTS THAT COME IN AND THEIR SOPHOMORE, JUNIOR OR SENIOR YEAR THAT ARE LOOKING FOR LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES, AND IT'S DIFFICULT FOR THEM TO MAYBE GET INTO ASB OR GET INTO A LEADERSHIP ROLE WHEN THEY HAVEN'T SPENT THE LAST 4 OR 5, 12 YEARS IN OUR DISTRICT.

SO THAT'S ANOTHER OPTION THAT I SEE IN MY VIEW, IS TO HAVE THAT SPECIFIC VOICE, ESPECIALLY GIVEN OUR HIGH MILITARY POPULATION.

I COULDN'T AGREE MORE.

I THINK THE WHAT REALLY WOULD BE, YOU KNOW, THE IDEALLY THE BEST CIRCUMSTANCE IS HAVING IF IT'S JUST TWO MEMBERS ON, YOU KNOW, IN MY POSITION PEOPLE THAT LIKE, HIGHLIGHT DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF THE SCHOOL TO THE BEST OF THE ABILITY THAT THAT IT CAN BE.

[02:15:02]

SO LIKE YOU SAID, MY FATHER HAS BEEN SERVING IN THE MILITARY FOR 33 YEARS NOW.

SO I, I HAVE A BIG MILITARY CONNECTION, AND I AM THE, YOU KNOW, THE LEADER OF MY LEADERSHIP CLASS.

SO I HAVE LIKE THAT SORT OF AREA COVERED.

AND THE COSA IS IS SOMETHING THAT I MIGHT NOT BE VERY WELL REPRESENTED REPRESENTATIVE OF.

BUT IN THE FUTURE THAT OBVIOUSLY CHANGES.

SO. YES.

WELL, AND I THINK IT'S INTERESTING BECAUSE IF YOU LOOK AT EDCO, THE STUDENT BOARD MEMBERS CHOSEN BY THE STUDENTS.

SO WE COULD OPEN THIS UP.

BUT ULTIMATELY THE CHOICE IS THE VOICE OF THE STUDENTS AND WHO THEY WANT REPRESENTING THEM.

WELL, I GUESS MY MY THINKING IS IT SEEMS LIKE AN IDEA WORTH CONSIDERING FURTHER.

AND I THINK, AS KIND OF SUGGESTED BY SUPERINTENDENT MUELLER WOULD PERHAPS ASK HIM AND HIS STAFF AND PRINCIPAL MOLINA AND AND MR. REVIE, MS. BELONG TO SUGGEST A PROCEDURE TO BE PRESCRIBED BY THE BOARD AND YOU KNOW, PER CODE 35 012 TO BRING IT BACK TO US IN THE HOPES OF MAYBE, LIKE WYATT SAYS, GETTING IT ON THE BALLOT FOR THEIR UPCOMING ELECTIONS AND HAVING THAT INCREASED VISIBILITY AND VOICE YOU KNOW, CAN ONLY BENEFIT US BECAUSE WE KNOW, I, WE KNOW WE'RE HERE TO SERVE THEM.

SO THAT WOULD BE MY SUGGESTION IF POSSIBLE.

ALSO THERE WERE THREE CONSIDERATIONS AND DISCUSSIONS ON THIS.

SO THE OTHER TWO WERE THE COMPENSATION.

AND THEN THE OTHER ONE WAS THE COURSE CREDIT.

SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT PEOPLE'S WHAT PEOPLE ARE THINKING WITH REGARDS TO PROVIDING A STIPEND FOR THE STUDENT BOARD, REP AND OR REPRESENTATIVES AND ALSO TRYING TO DO SOME KIND OF COURSE CREDIT, WHICH I THINK WOULD DEFINITELY GO THROUGH YOUR TEAM AND MISS MOLINA TO FIGURE OUT WHETHER THAT'S SOMETHING WE WANT TO OFFER.

I THINK I WOULD BE LEANING MORE TOWARD COURSE CREDIT THAN MONETARY COMPENSATION.

AGREED. YEAH, I AGREE, ESPECIALLY IF OF COURSE CREDIT GOES ON A TRANSCRIPT AND COULD BE BENEFICIAL FOR APPLICATIONS AND OTHER THINGS.

THAT WOULD BE MY INCLINATION, BUT I WOULD BE OPEN TO RECEIVING SUGGESTIONS OF STAFF.

AGREED. OKAY.

THANK YOU.

OKAY. DOCTOR BATTLE.

THANK YOU. YEAH.

THANK YOU. VERY GOOD.

DO WE WANT TO BREAK MORE? OKAY.

ALL RIGHT. ITEM 5.5.

DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT UPDATES.

MY APOLOGIES, DOCTOR BATTLE.

SHOULD I JUST INTRODUCE HIM SO HE CAN.

DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT SALAMANCA.

[5.5 Deputy Superintendent Updates]

THANK YOU SIR. I TRUST THE BOARD HAS HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW MY REPORT.

I'M AVAILABLE FOR ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

IS THERE ANY PUBLIC COMMENT ON ITEM 5.5? TRUSTEES. REALLY QUICKLY, DID YOU THE WHAT PERCENTAGE OF ATTENDANCE DID YOU SAY THAT THE BUDGET IS BASED ON THE.

WE HAVE A HISTORICAL ADA PERCENTAGE OF 96%.

AND SO THAT'S WHAT WE'VE BUILT INTO OUR PROJECTIONS.

OKAY. THANK YOU.

I KNOW THAT PRINCIPAL KUHNS JUST SPOKE ABOUT ATTENDANCE AND DOING SOME KIND OF INCENTIVES, AND THERE COULD BE.

BUT IS THERE ANY THOUGHTS ABOUT DOING A DISTRICT WIDE ATTENDANCE INCENTIVE PROGRAM SIMILAR TO WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT? I THINK WE'D HAVE TO LOOK INTO SOME MORE OF THE SPECIFICS ABOUT THE ATTENDANCE AND ATTENDANCE INCENTIVES THAT HE'S PROPOSING.

I KNOW FROM PAST EXPERIENCE AS A AS AN AUDITOR THERE'S VERY LIMITED TYPES OF ATTENDANCE INCENTIVES YOU'RE ALLOWED TO PROVIDE.

AND SO WE'LL HAVE TO SEE WHAT MAY WORK.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

ITEM 5.6 SUPERINTENDENT UPDATES, SUPERINTENDENT MUELLER.

[5.6 Superintendent Updates]

BOARD MEMBER COMMENTS.

TRUSTEE. CAVANAUGH WOULD YOU LIKE TO START THIS MONTH? SURE. I'LL GO. I'LL GO REALLY QUICKLY.

THIS MONTH I HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO ATTEND THE BUDGET STUDY COMMITTEE MEETING.

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR PUTTING THIS ON.

I'D LIKE TO THANK WE HAD A ROBUST GROUP OF COMMUNITY MEMBERS THERE THIS TIME.

SO I'D LIKE TO THANK ALL OF THE NEWBIES THAT SHOWED UP AND ALL OF THE GREAT QUESTIONS AND AND INSIGHTS THAT THEY HAD.

SO IT WAS GREAT TO SEE MORE PEOPLE THERE.

I ATTENDED THE SOUTH COUNTY LEGISLATIVE ACTION DISCUSSION THE OTHER NIGHT WITH SUPERINTENDENT MUELLER TALKING ABOUT WAYS TO ADVOCATE FOR THINGS IN OUR DISTRICT.

I THINK SPECIFICALLY THE ONES THAT GOT THE MOST HEAD NODS AND VOTES WERE TO SEEK FULLY FULL FUNDING FOR SPECIAL EDUCATION, FULL FUNDING OF THE COLA AND THE IMPORTANCE OF MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES AND MONIES FOR THAT AT OUR SCHOOLS. I SAW THE COST OF DIGITAL ART PRESENTATION AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER THIS WEEK, AND IT WAS THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL.

AND THEN I HAVE OFFICE HOURS ON MARCH 27TH.

IF ANYONE WANTS TO POP BY AND CHAT, VISIT, WHATEVER.

THAT'S IT. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THIS MONTH I ATTENDED OUR KEEPING KIDS SAFE ONLINE COMMITTEE.

THERE WAS A GREAT DISCUSSION AROUND ONGOING ISSUES, NEPTUNE NAVIGATE, CYBER SECURITY, AI.

WE JUST IT WAS A REALLY ROBUST, THOUGHTFUL DISCUSSION.

HOW TO KEEP OUR KIDS INFORMED AND SAFE ABOUT ONLINE SAFETY.

SO I'M ALWAYS EAGER TO ATTEND THOSE AND AND LEARN MORE.

I ATTENDED THE OPENING OF THE PHOTOGRAPHIC ARTS EXHIBIT.

IT WAS AWESOME AND GRAPHIC ARTS EXHIBIT.

AND I'VE BEEN DIVING DEEP INTO LEGISLATIVE POLICY ROLLING UP MY SLEEVES, WORKING ON WITH, AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, LEGISLATIVE ACTION WEEK, OUR ASSEMBLY MEMBERS AND OUR STATE SENATORS.

REALLY EXCITED TO BE WORKING WITH ASSEMBLY MEMBER CHRIS WARD ON A BILL REGARDING ACTIVE SHOOTER DRILLS AND THE THE IMPORTANCE OF STANDARDIZING THOSE AND REDUCING TRAUMA ON CHILDREN.

I ATTENDED THE SILVER STRAND OPEN HOUSE AND FIESTA NIGHT FOR BAND AND CHOIR BOOSTERS, ALL OF WHICH WERE WONDERFUL.

BUT AS YOU KNOW, THE POLICY NERD IN ME IS JUST REALLY I'M WORRIED ABOUT THE THE UNPRECEDENTED BORROWING FROM PROP 98 FUNDS THAT'S BEING PROPOSED BY THE GOVERNOR'S OFFICE.

I THINK THAT THIS IS A DANGEROUS, DANGEROUS TERRITORY AND ADVOCATING A LOT AGAINST THAT.

AND ALSO ADVOCATING FOR A NEW OFFICE WITHIN CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION FOR SMALL SCHOOL DISTRICTS LIKE OURS, BECAUSE THERE ISN'T ONE AND WE MAKE UP OVER 60% OF CALIFORNIA SCHOOL DISTRICTS.

SO THOSE ARE THE THINGS I'VE BEEN WORKING ON AND ALWAYS APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE OUR COMMUNITY.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

SO THIS MONTH, I WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO HAVE OUR PRINCIPAL, BROOKE FARLAR, HOST ME AT THE CMS FOR MY SITE VISIT.

WE TALKED A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ENROLLMENT AND SOME OF THE CHALLENGES THERE.

[02:25:01]

AND THEN ALSO SHE SHOWED ME SOME OF THE AREAS THAT HAD SOME FLOOD DAMAGE.

AND AMAZINGLY, LIKE I WALKED PAST AND DIDN'T EVEN SEE IT.

IT WAS SEAMLESS. AND THE REPAIRS HAVE ESSENTIALLY ALREADY BEEN DONE.

SO FORTUNATELY, THAT SCHOOL DID NOT HAVE MUCH IN THE WAY OF DAMAGE.

PROBABLY THE MOST INTERESTING OR AT LEAST EDUCATIONAL THING FOR ME WAS TALKING TO HER AND SOME OF THE STAFF ABOUT THE USE OF THE CHROMEBOOKS, OF COURSE.

WE AS A DISTRICT, PURCHASE CHROMEBOOKS FOR ALL THE STUDENTS.

AND WE SPEND A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF FUNDS ON THAT.

IT THE THE ADVANTAGE OF THE CHROMEBOOKS IS THAT FOR THE TESTING, THEY DO HAVE WHAT'S CALLED A LOCKOUT BROWSER FUNCTION.

SO WHEN YOU ARE AS A STUDENT, YOU'RE TAKING THE TEST.

YOU CAN'T YOU CAN'T ACCESS THE INTERNET IN ANY OTHER WAY.

AND SO AND OF COURSE, THAT FUNCTIONALITY IS NOT PRESENT ON OTHER DEVICES TO INCLUDE PERSONAL DEVICES.

AND THEN ALSO AS THE NEW POLICY, OF COURSE, IS THAT THE CHROMEBOOKS HAVE TO BE ARE THE ONLY YOU CAN'T BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE TO SCHOOL YOUR OWN COMPUTER OR YOUR OWN LAPTOP, AND YOU HAVE TO USE THE CHROMEBOOKS.

AND THE ADVANTAGE OF THIS IS THAT THERE'S A PROGRAM THAT THE TEACHERS CAN USE CALLED HAPERA, AND THEY ARE ABLE TO ESSENTIALLY KEEP TRACK OF WHAT ALL THE WHAT ALL THE STUDENTS ARE DOING ON THEIR LAPTOPS IN THE IN THE CLASSROOM.

AND YOU CAN THEY THEY HAVE SOME CONTROL OVER THAT.

SO WHILE THEY'RE TEACHING, THEY THEY CAN MAKE SURE THAT ALL THE STUDENTS ARE ON THE SAME PAGE WITH THEM.

AND THEN IF YOU WERE TO STOP AS A, AS AN INSTRUCTOR AND THEN YOU WANTED TO SPEAK TO THE CLASS AND GET EVERYONE'S ATTENTION, YOU CAN ACTUALLY YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO FREEZE EVERYONE'S FUNCTION WITHIN THE, IN THE CLASS AND GET THEIR ATTENTION.

AND SO YOU CAN JUST IMAGINE NOT HAVING THAT AND HOPING THAT A CLASS OF 25 OR 30 STUDENTS WOULD ACTUALLY PAY ATTENTION TO YOU.

SO I THOUGHT IT WAS THAT THAT WAS THAT WAS VERY EDUCATIONAL FOR ME.

I KNOW THAT THAT IT'S SOMEWHAT CONTROVERSIAL AMONG THE STUDENTS.

AND I THINK THAT THIS POLICY IS GOING TO BE BROUGHT OR IS POTENTIALLY BROUGHT TO THE HIGH SCHOOL NEXT YEAR.

BUT AT LEAST AMONG THE CMS TEACHERS, IT'S IT SEEMS LIKE IT WAS DESCRIBED AS A, AS A GAME CHANGER.

SO IN TERMS OF INCORPORATING ELECTRONICS IN THE CLASSROOM.

SO THAT WAS MY SITE VISIT.

SO THANK YOU. OKAY, SO THIS MONTH MY SITE VISIT WAS WITH PRINCIPAL PETE AND I WISH HE WAS STILL HERE BECAUSE WE HAVE THE SAME TIE ON.

WE'RE COORDINATING OUR OUTFITS NOW.

AND HE DID COMMENT THAT HE WANTED TO BE THE BEST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY.

SO I WAS LOOKING AT JENNY MOORE OVER THERE, WHO IS CURRENTLY THE BEST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN SAN DIEGO.

SO ANYWAY LET'S SEE, IT WAS A GREAT VISIT.

ALL THE CLASSROOMS ARE REPAIRED.

KINDERGARTEN WAS DOUBLED UP FOR TWO AND A HALF WEEKS, HE SAID, BUT BUT NOW THEY'RE BACK IN THEIR OWN CLASSROOMS. YOU CAN SEE THE DAMAGE ON PRINCIPAL PETE'S WALLS WHERE THEY WERE REPAIRED.

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE PAINTED THIS SUMMER.

BUT ALL THE DAMAGE WAS QUICKLY REPAIRED.

SO FANTASTIC JOB TO DEPUTY SALAMANCA AND HIS CREW.

THE LIBRARY AND INNOVATION CENTER WERE RECENTLY BROUGHT BACK ONLINE DUE TO DUE TO ALL THE FLOODING.

SO THEY'RE THEY'RE GOOD TO GO.

SO IT'S THE SECOND TIME I'VE MET WITH PRINCIPAL PETE, AND YOU DON'T GET TO KNOW SOMEBODY VERY WELL THAT WAY, BUT HE WAS IN PORTRAIT OF A GRADUATE, SO I WORKED WITH HIM A LOT THERE. WE GOT PAIRED UP TO DO TO DO LITTLE PROJECTS TOGETHER.

SO THAT WAS FANTASTIC. HE'S HE'S AN AMAZING PERSON.

EVEN THOUGH HE'S 12 YEARS OLD.

BUT SO THE PORTRAIT OF A GRADUATE, IT WAS A, IT WAS THE THIRD ONE, THE THIRD WEEKEND VERSION, IF YOU DON'T COUNT THE LIBRARY ONE, WHICH.

SO THERE WERE TECHNICALLY FOUR.

AND ALL THE STAFF WERE THERE PRINCIPALS? EVERY PRINCIPAL WAS THERE.

MANY TEACHERS, MANY STUDENTS AND MANY COMMUNITY MEMBERS VOLUNTEERED THEIR TIME TO PLAN FOR THE FUTURE FOR OUR CHILDREN.

SO I THOUGHT THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC.

AND IT WAS A WONDERFUL EVENT.

I FINISHED THE MASTERS AND GOVERNANCE CLASS, THE FINAL ONE TODAY.

SO I HAVE MY. YEAH, I HAVE MY LITTLE I'M OFFICIAL.

I HAVE MY LITTLE PIN.

YOU GET A PIN.

SO IF YOU WANT TO COME ADMIRE THAT IT'S FUN TO GET TO TALK TO OTHER DISTRICTS AND PEOPLE FROM OTHER DISTRICTS.

AND THERE WAS ONE, WE'RE A SMALL DISTRICT, WE'RE 3000.

WELL, THE HAPPY VALLEY DISTRICT, THE K THROUGH EIGHT DISTRICT UP IN SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS HAS 125 KIDS.

SO I THOUGHT THAT WAS THAT WAS PRETTY AMAZING.

SO IF YOU THINK WE'RE SMALL, WE'RE NOT THE SMALLEST.

THE LAST THING I HAD WAS KEEPING STUDENTS SAFE ONLINE.

[02:30:01]

I ATTENDED WITH TRUSTEE ANTRIM.

AND WE ARE NOW TEACHING THE NEPTUNE NAVIGATE SYLLABUS FOR K THROUGH 12 THAT MISS FOLEY AND MR. SCHMEICHEL HAVE IMPLEMENTED AND THEY'VE GONE THROUGH ALL THOSE LECTURES.

IT GETS UPDATED EVERY YEAR.

THAT'S PART OF THE NEPTUNE NAVIGATE.

I'M PRETTY LOW TECH PERSON, SO I DON'T FEEL LIKE I'VE CONTRIBUTED ENOUGH.

SO I STARTED TAKING THIS LISTENING TO IT'S CALLED THE GREAT COURSES, AND IT'S HOW DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY SHAPES OUR LIVES AS A 20 PART LECTURE SERIES ABOUT HALFWAY THROUGH IT. SO I HOPE TO BE UP TO SPEED MORE BECAUSE I KNOW MY NINTH GRADER IS JUST YEARS, LIGHT YEARS AHEAD OF ME ON THIS STUFF.

SO I HOPE TO BE ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE MORE WHEN I WHEN I DO THOSE MEETINGS.

SO THANK YOU.

FOR EASE.

I DID A POWERPOINT SLIDE FOR MY PRESENTATION.

THIS IS EVERYTHING I DID THIS LAST MONTH.

THIS IS ME AT FUTURE ISLANDER NIGHT.

I ALMOST WENT WITH THE PHOTO OF ME DRESSED AS BELLE.

I HAD TWO ELEMENTARY TEACHERS TAKE ME UP ON COMING INTO THEIR CLASSROOMS. SO I GOT TO READ FOR MISS ROBERTS FIRST GRADE CLASS, AND SHE KIND OF CHALLENGED/DARED ME TO SHOW UP IN COSTUME.

SO FULL ON BELLE COSTUME HAPPENED.

FOLLOW ME ON FACEBOOK FOR THAT PHOTO.

AND THEN I WENT TO MISS CUMMINS SECOND GRADE CLASS FOR READING GROUPS, AND SO HELPED KIND OF KEEP THE KIDS ON TASK AND QUIET WHILE SHE DID SMALL READING GROUPS. SO THAT WAS A LOT OF MOVEMENT MOVING AROUND.

SO A LOT OF GREAT THINGS GOING ON.

AND GIVEN OUR DISCUSSION AND REPORT TONIGHT ON IDTS AND SPECIAL PROGRAMS HIGHLIGHTING COSA, AND I KNOW THAT MR. REEBY MENTIONED WE HAD A COUPLE OF COSA STUDENTS DO REALLY WELL THERE IN NEW YORK RIGHT NOW.

THEY'RE THEY'RE RECEIVING PRESTIGIOUS AWARDS.

AND WE HAVE THE THE CURRENT PHOTOGRAPHIC ART SHOW THAT OPENED ON THURSDAY SAW TRUSTEE ANTRIM THERE.

IT'S GOING ON RIGHT NOW STILL.

AND THAT'S IN COORDINATION WITH THE CITY OF CORONADO CULTURAL ARTS COMMITTEE.

SO OUR STUDENTS ARE WORKING WITH THE CITY OF CORONADO AND REALLY GETTING MORE EXPOSURE AND GETTING OUT THERE WITH WHAT THEY'RE DOING.

AND I APPRECIATE THE CITY AND THE CULTURAL ARTS COMMITTEE FOR WORKING WITH US ON THAT.

AND OF COURSE, MISS WARMAN FOR DOING THAT.

AND SO I THINK THAT PROGRAM IS REALLY GROWING AND WE HAVE A LOT TO PROMOTE AND BE BE PROUD ABOUT WITH THAT.

I'M EXCITED FOR OUR SPECIAL MEETING COMING UP IN.

I THINK WE HAVE TWO WEEKS. WE'LL BE BACK HERE TO LOOK AT ALL THE DIFFERENT ORGANIZATIONS THAT WE COLLABORATE WITH WHO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL FUNDING AND SUPPORT FOR OUR STUDENTS.

SO THAT'S COMING UP.

IF YOU WANT TO COME AND OBSERVE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT OUR BUDGET RIGHT NOW, AND THAT'S A HUGE PIECE GOING ON RIGHT NOW.

AND SO LOOKING AT ALL THE DIFFERENT FUNDING STREAMS THAT ARE COMING IN FROM OUTSIDE PRIVATE OR NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS AND WHAT OUR PARENTS ARE DOING TO SUPPORT OUR DISTRICT. I WENT TO THREE PTO MEETINGS.

SORRY, SILVER STRAND, I GOT TO GET ON YOUR TEXT LIST OR SOMETHING.

SO I CAN GET OVER THERE.

BUT MY MEETING THIS MORNING.

GOD, I CAN TALK ABOUT THIS.

I MEAN, HIGH SCHOOL HAD DINKY DONUTS, AND I ROLLED IN FOR A DONUT AND ROLLED RIGHT OUT TO MISS CUMMINS SECOND GRADE.

AND I NEEDED THAT SUGAR HIGH FOR THAT.

BUT WE HAVE A LOT OF PARENTS WORKING.

THE JOGATHON HAS ALREADY BROUGHT IN, I THINK 20 OR $30,000 SO FAR.

AND IT'S STILL GOING.

AND I KNOW OTHER CTOS ARE DOING A LOT.

SO FOCUSED ON THAT AND THEN JUST LOOKING FORWARD TO GOING TO DC WITH TRUSTEE.

ANTRIM. I'M EXCITED FOR THIS.

IT'S GOING TO BE MY FIRST OPPORTUNITY TO REALLY ADVOCATE AND LOOK AT WHAT WE CAN DO AS TRUSTEES TO ADVOCATE FOR OUR DISTRICT, FOR OUR COMMUNITY.

AND SO THAT'S WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR ON THE HORIZON.

AND SO, YEAH.

AND IF YOU SEE ME OUT AND ABOUT, PLEASE REACH OUT, TALK TO ME.

I'M STILL AVAILABLE TO READ WITH OR WITHOUT A COSTUME.

IF ANY TEACHER WANTS ME TO COME IN OR HELP OUT IN ANY OTHER CLASS DOING ROBOTICS OR WHATNOT.

SO THANK YOU.

SUPERINTENDENT'S COMMENTS.

[7.3 Superintendent's Comments]

THANK YOU, THANK YOU TAMMY.

THANK YOU TRUSTEES.

THANK YOU, PRESIDENT PALACIOS-PETERS.

DITTO. I ATTENDED MANY OF THE EVENTS AT WITHIN ATTEMPT TO NOT REPEAT A FEW THAT WEREN'T MENTIONED THAT I WAS ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN SOME BY MYSELF, SOME WITH TRUSTEES.

WE HAD OUR TWO BY TWO MEETING WITH THE CITY MANAGER AND TWO CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS.

ALWAYS APPRECIATE THE SUPPORT OF OUR OF OUR PARTNERS AT THE CITY OF CORONADO AND CORONADO POLICE DEPARTMENT.

SOME OF THE OTHER EVENTS I KNOW.

[02:35:01]

TRUSTEE SANDIE MENTIONED THE PORTRAIT OF A GRADUATE, BUT HATS OFF TO THE TEAM AND THE DEPARTMENT THAT'S REALLY RUNNING LEAD ON THAT WITH THE COUNTY OFFICE OF ED.

SO THANK YOU, DOCTOR BATTLE.

I WANTED TO FOCUS ON TWO THINGS TO CLOSE.

NUMBER ONE, YOU KNOW, THERE WERE SOME DIFFICULT DISCUSSIONS THIS EVENING AS IT RELATED TO THE BUDGET AND JUST THE COMPLEXITIES AROUND PUBLIC SCHOOL EDUCATION AND BUDGETING AND HOW DIFFICULT IT CAN BE WHEN WE ARE ASKED TO MAKE BUDGET DECISIONS EARLY IN THE SPRING WITHOUT HAVING THE INFORMATION READILY AVAILABLE.

WE CANNOT OVERSTATE THE IMPORTANCE OF ALL PROGRAMS AND ALL ADULTS AND THEIR IMPACT AND THEIR ROLE THAT THEY HAVE WITH.

THE CHILDREN IN OUR DISTRICT.

IF WE WEREN'T IN THIS POSITION, WE'D BE CELEBRATING THAT WE'RE BUILDING AND THAT WE'RE GROWING AND THAT WE'RE EXPANDING.

I THINK SOME SOME NEWS RECENTLY AND WAS REMINDED OF, YOU KNOW, THROUGHOUT THIS PROCESS OF IDENTIFYING AREAS TO TIGHTEN OUR BELT.

YOU KNOW, IN THE NATIONAL NEWS, WE READ A LOT ABOUT NEXT BENEDICT AND THE NEED FOR US TO BE VIGILANT IN OUR SUPPORT OF THE WHOLE CHILD WHILE THEY ARE IN OUR CARE.

SOME OF THE CONFERENCES THAT I LISTED IN THE SAFETY REPORT REFLECT THAT COMMITMENT.

AND WE ARE COMMITTED TO CONTINUING TO PROVIDE RESOURCES AND SUPPORTS.

ABOVE AND BEYOND THE THRESHOLD SET BY SET BY THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA AS IT RELATES TO COUNSELOR AND STUDENT RATIOS.

THE LAST ONE IS APPRECIATION AND AN ACKNOWLEDGMENT.

ONE OF THE ITEMS OF INTEREST THAT I DISCUSSED IN THE STATE OF THE DISTRICT WAS REALLY REACHING OUT TO MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY WHO MAY HAVE FELT THAT THEY WEREN'T PROVIDED WITH OPPORTUNITIES FOR DIALOG.

AND I'VE HAD SOME REALLY IMPORTANT CONVERSATIONS WITH MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY, BOTH STAFF AND STUDENTS.

AND FEEL THAT THOSE DISCUSSIONS ARE CONSTRUCTIVE AND AM ENCOURAGED BY THE DEVELOPMENT OF OF SOME OF THOSE INITIATIVES, WHETHER IT'S INDIVIDUAL PARENTS IN OUR COMMUNITY SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS IN OUR COMMUNITY, OR THE SUPERINTENDENT STUDENT ADVISORY COUNCILS WITH BOTH THE MIDDLE SCHOOL AND THE HIGH SCHOOL.

IT'S IT'S REALLY BEEN.

SOMETHING THAT HAS PROVIDED ME WITH A NEW APPRECIATION FOR THE THE DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES THAT WE HAVE HERE WITHIN OUR SCHOOL COMMUNITY, AND THAT IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT WE'RE NOT LEAVING ANYONE FEELING ALIENATED.

SO I WANT TO THANK ALL OF THOSE WHO HAVE ALLOWED ME TO CRASH THEIR MEETINGS OR MET WITH ME FOR AN EARLY COFFEE, AND MY COMMITMENT IS TO CONTINUE THOSE DISCUSSIONS WITH WITH THE GOAL OF STRENGTHENING THIS AMAZING DISTRICT THAT I'M SO FORTUNATE TO BE A PART OF.

THOSE CONCLUDE MY COMMENTS.

THANK YOU.

MOVING ON TO ITEM 8.1 PROPOSED LIST OF AGENDA ITEMS FOR FUTURE BOARD MEETINGS.

[8.1 Proposed List of Agenda Items for Future Board Meetings]

DO WE HAVE DO WE HAVE ANY PUBLIC COMMENT ON THIS ITEM? TRUSTEES. SO I JUST WANT TO THROW THIS OUT HERE FOR CONSIDERATION.

I HAVEN'T TALKED TO ANYONE ABOUT THIS YET.

BUT HAVING SEEN ALL OF THE SCHOOL REPORTS THIS YEAR AND I LOVE THE VARIETY OF THEM.

I LOVE THE PERSONAL TOUCH TO EACH ONE OF THEM.

BUT WAS WONDERING IF THERE COULD BE SOME KIND OF STANDARDIZATION OR SOMETHING AMONG THE REPORTS, MAYBE INFORMATION THAT'S ALIGNED WITH OUR DISTRICT GOALS OR, YOU KNOW, PART OF IT THAT IS, THAT IS STANDARDIZED AND THEN, YOU KNOW, A FEW FLAIR PAGES AT THE END, SOMETHING THAT THAT'S A LITTLE MORE CONSISTENT.

JUST THROWING THAT OUT THERE FOR FROM THE SCHOOLS, FROM THE FOUR SCHOOLS MAKING THOSE REPORTS.

I DON'T KNOW. DO YOU HAVE THOUGHTS ON.

BECAUSE I KNOW EACH SCHOOL IS SO DIFFERENT.

I DON'T KNOW IF I, SO WE HAVE IN THE PAST HAD A FORMAT OR A TEMPLATE THAT OUR PRINCIPALS HAVE USED, AND SLOWLY IT'S KIND OF EVOLVED INTO THEIR OWN PERSONALITIES.

WE DO ASK FOR VERY SPECIFIC THINGS.

HOW YOUR SITE PLAN ALIGNS WITH OUR LCAP CURRENT DEMOGRAPHICS.

I LOOK AT ASSESSMENT DATA, A LOOK AT CURRENT INITIATIVES AND WHAT'S ON THE HORIZON.

ALL FOUR OF OUR PRINCIPALS BRING THEIR PASSION TO EACH INDIVIDUAL SITE, AND THOSE ARE REFLECTED IN THOSE REPORTS.

SO I CAN SHARE WITH THE GOVERNING BOARD WHAT KIND OF THAT OUTLINE IS THAT WE ASK FOR?

[02:40:07]

SO A LIMIT, A LIMITED STANDARDIZATION WITH THE ABILITY FOR US TO STILL TAP INTO THE INDIVIDUAL PASSIONS OF EACH SITE BECAUSE WE HAVE FOUR UNIQUE CULTURES AND COMMUNITIES WITHIN CUSD, AND I DON'T WANT TO I DON'T WANT TO LIKE RAIN ON ANYONE'S PARADE OR ANYTHING.

I WAS JUST I WAS JUST THINKING FOR MY OWN EASE OF TRYING TO LOOK AT THE INFORMATION AND SOME KIND OF CONSISTENCY.

BUT IF SO, A RECOMMENDATION, I CAN WORK WITH MY PRINCIPALS AND, I DON'T KNOW, FEEDBACK AS WE LOOK TOWARDS, YOU KNOW, IN THE FALL, STARTING TO BUILD THESE TO MAYBE HAVE AT LEAST SOME ALIGNMENT WITH THE ORDER OF THOSE FOUR KIND OF NON-NEGOTIABLES.

OH, I THINK SO.

OKAY. IS THAT.

DOES THAT WORK FOR YOU? YEAH.

YEAH. AND THEN FLARE AT THE END.

AND FLAIR.

HEARD IT, THANK YOU.

MR. REVIE. I WOULD LIKE TO PROPOSE THAT AT A FUTURE MEETING, WE DISCUSS THE THE UPCOMING BAN ON THE PERSONAL COMPUTERS USE AT THE HIGH SCHOOL.

I KNOW THAT THE STUDENT BODY THAT I REPRESENT AT THE HIGH SCHOOL IS NOT NOT TOO THRILLED WITH THE PROPOSAL.

AND SO I'D LIKE TO DISCUSS MORE OF, MAYBE ALTERNATIVE METHODS TO THE PROBLEMS THAT ARE TRYING TO BE ACCOMPLISHED BY THAT INITIATIVE. AND I HAVE SOME, SOME THOUGHTS WITH ME RIGHT NOW, BUT I KNOW BECAUSE IT'S NOT AGENDIZED RIGHT NOW.

WE CAN DISCUSS THAT AT A LATER MEETING.

FOR THAT REQUEST.

SO IT'D BE LIKE A LEARNING REPORT OR HOW WOULD THAT LOOK? SORRY WILL BE A REPORT AND WE WILL KIND OF HIGHLIGHT THE WHY AND SOME OF THE CONCERNS THAT HAVE BEEN BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION, BUT ALSO PROVIDE MR. REVIE AN OUTLET TO REPRESENT HIS PEERS.

THANK YOU. STAFF WILL TARGET THAT EITHER AT THE APRIL OR THE MAY BOARD MEETING.

GREAT. THANK YOU.

OKAY. 8.2 OUR LIST OF UPCOMING MEETINGS.

[8.2 Upcoming Meetings]

SPECIAL BOARD MEETING MARCH 26TH TO HIGHLIGHT.

AND WITH THAT, WE GO TO CLOSED SESSION.

[9. CLOSED SESSION]

THANK YOU. THANK YOU.
