the better so just the last thing i want to say is that as we're looking at to put the that his together in terms of who is going to serve and how we're going to move this forward in terms of the board and what it is going to look like intentional making sure that we've had those conversations not ethnicity wise but cross disciplines in the work with the board members had participate in the skills to increase the resources in the district. >> commissioner vice president haney. >> thank you commissioner president murase. >> thank you, laura for the way you've engaged with the board we've had a number of conversations as the structure was put together as we thought about the vision and we
10:31 am
recommended board members this entire process has been a partnerships are the district staff and the board it is incredible important i wish we had adequate resources at the district we didn't have to spend a lot of times but the state and city funded us at a level we didn't have to pursue a lot of time with fundraising that's not the reality that we face and for the for assembly future with that said we've blessed to live in a communicated in san francisco thereer tremendous resources available not only in terms of financial resources but innovation and expertise they can share with use it is an essential and really for us a deferring liberation of doubt
10:32 am
and the question how do we do it what is the structure and i think the way we put together visions 2024 and thought about where and want to go and say? what our needs are as opposed to those dictated by people that have the money so do it this way we're at a point we can say this is our vision and led by superintendant and putting forward this strategy this is our vision this is our needs and how can i fit into that and help us meet those needs i know i hear folks in the community is there is so much wealthy how can i meet the needs of the students but don't let them take public education not only public so what you put together is a structure that allows the board to maintain our control and vision and the
10:33 am
superintendant his vision to really draw fully on the opportunity if are available in terms of partnerships so we've struck the right balance i fully endorse that the one thing i'll ask maybe this will help to kind of put this in real terms for people that maybe listening or watching if you get kind of paint a picture or give an example of how the board of education my interact with or work with the board as a foundation in terms of decisions or but the truth or resources how might that look in practice so we can get a sense of for us the unique relationship but a new relationship and one that i think will be evolving if you could put the meat on the bones to understand what it looks
10:34 am
like. >> that's a great question one of the things we've talked about we have our campaign priorities and fundraising priorities but one the things i see learning this board of directors is asking their voices and support how we set goals around those and actually communicate that to the border public what kinds of activities and networks we'll be taping into we've had people to step forward and offer their support and introducing us to groups that manage the private donor funds and some of them are public school parents that want to see as you said more of the wealth in the city go to public educations i see us leveraging the board and want to see the
10:35 am
superintendant or folks in the school meet with us and the board members are invited i see using this as partners to emancipation proclamation tell our story positively and how to communicate the great results with the investment and how to more fully engage frankly more funders than today we want to raise the money to go deeper and more quickly with the things especially where we have clear strategies where we're trying to innovative and need to lead today's arnold article was a good example we made the first page of the chronicle that was a partnership between a founder that says tells you what's important to you we've partnered with the cb o in the community with higher ed groups and the teachers and our english arts
10:36 am
department and truly created something together that resulted in something i think has been a big challenge to close the digital divide with the in school connection and leveraging the technology to help the families be there are in the students first teacher and be empowered to be advocates and supports for the teachers for the children so those are the kinds of things we want to figure out how do we take that to scale; right? if this is something this is combrfr how to get more funders like the great literacy and so i think this is really existed weigh egg to handpick people that are partners and innovative thinkers so i see that as a layer of support for us. >> ms. fewer.
10:37 am
>> yes. thank you laura for this report and i'm glad to see we're finally kind of doing it quite frankly so to laurie know you've been reaching out for a caregivers i'd like to speak you, you about the board of directors board of directors do so the level of expertise the vastness of the areas of expertise and also how long do they serve i feel we also as board members should be looking for potential board of directors for this important position so fully understand the responsibilities are sort of and the charge of it i think that would be helpful for me and another thing what is going to be i am prefer you've said to make that true we keep to the integrate we have a strategic plan to the goals of of our strategic plan and that is
10:38 am
never, ever forgotten and you stay true to course and this is the funding had will help us thank you, laura i really appreciate that. >> commissioner mendosa-mcdonnell. >> i wanted to acknowledge you and our team we have important a long-term as many of the colleagues know have been wanting a development team to bring this altogether and what you've been able to do with our office and staff has been phenomenal we're on in incredible role and people are investing in our young people and our teachers and principals and what is happening in the clamor we're giving p them n that pathway and the launch last week was really great and it really balances out the possibility for many of the schools that don't have the infrastructure to put someplace together and in addition to that
10:39 am
as an equalizer for many of the schools and what a difference it makes over and over unify ordinary this is what we need and instead of chasing money i guess my one question with many you know we've used fiscal agencies in the past and charged fees that is in house and we'll be able to you imagine charge an admin fee to make sure those dollars are collected and distributed accordingly one other piece that makes you powerful we've had agencies that worked closely with the district to be the fundraising arm but having it in house you'll have the pulse of what is happening on a daily basis this is
10:40 am
powerful so congratulations and i know this is a couple of years in the making i hope to see that to witness the first board meeting with the approval by way of. >> i want to call out a cough of people ms. howling is responsible for the populating the website for each the schools so each school will have a platform for which to fund-raise and schools can identify projects to be contributed towards so want to compliment our team and to elaborate on the partnering is about it is about

10:45 am
learning environment and the students i'm asked with where's the training when will we get to full implementation i want to share a slide don't go crazy that is the bother action team support i'm showing you this not as a hundred accurate those numbers are not make up but they might not be today's numbers we're keeping the point is we're keeping track of those personal outreach to individual schools for different support programs so if you look for instance restorative practices we've got 2 hundred and 98 not staff but 2 hundred 98 people if thomass office are supporting the district arrest the 3 hundred
