siding it kinds of at city hall on monday with mayor ed lee there were varies kind of events at jordan high school a week of activities that almost every school in the district and culminated with mayor ed lee visiting sunset elementary school an amazing autism awareness and presenting ipads to the special day classes to hem to provide better access to the curriculum through technology other highlights from the previous school year i'd like to to mention include our awe w e the advocates worthy of excellence we had spruthd to honor the crossing guard for their dedication to our students
1:03 am
was a year of a couple of first or first, the first time we presented our annual report to you the board of education probably the first time we were able to do that we work in collaboration with the rules committee to update our baufdz bye laws and have been delighted that the partnerships that we created sunlight of that outreach along with the special ed leadership members of the cac have traveled to sacramento to lobby on behalf of our families and students and an example of this is getting a monthly bill that relates to properly identifying and supporting students early with dyslexia awe
1:04 am
wasting joseph's signature and we've updated the local plan the cac has been busy presenting to various stakeholder groups along with dr. and her colleagues including the pack and is african-american pack and various others stakeholders groups. >> in regards to achievement ordinances there's a lot of detail in the report we've presented some of the highlights of our recommendation include increasing warns of the modifications we had a very successful roll out at test not without it's challenges but it was quite the learning experience for everyone special education and accomodation
1:05 am
modification providers included we would like to make sure that this coming school year some attention in training raising awareness for the accomodation and the modifications built into the test as well as some of the universal pools designated supports available and there's a lot of training that is required to make sure that many of those accommodations are applied to students there are more information on the next slide we will be happy to provide information for anyone interested in more another area we think that additional train is essentially helpful making sure about the education plan that supports our children have enrolls when we say legally defenseable i have a lovely case
1:06 am
study that was prepared all 22 pages of how to write legally defenseable goals some of the best practices making sure that your goals are specific descriptive you're not using industry jorlg r jargon something that can be measured towards the success of our childrenr jargon something that can be measured towards the success of our childr jargon so can be measured towards the success of our childrjargon som can be measured towards the success of our children. >> the adversity first is the the pyramid i know the school district uses this model would be the achievement outcomes to insure that all succulence students can read at grade level by 6th grades in order to do that it takes a lot of work i
1:07 am
know that dr. stevens ahead of curriculum is working on this very issue in terms of trying to identify the methodologies the targeted levels such the level of reading identification of a level reading levels and tier 3 the more individuals level of instruction traditional methods have been with the (calling names) i myself am optimistic we'll mvmd i myself have a child that is dyslexia so i had to take her outside of the school district to get her to read i'd like to see that change there are something as you may know your heard about the what is it called the education to the
1:08 am
prison piecemeal no easier flow to get on the piecemeal than not being able to read the statistics for prisoners that can't read or can't read well is off the charts so as concerned citizens we should all want to support better, more specific reading instructions special ed can i see sometimes their identified as special east side simply no instruction to read and some kids have a different way their brain functions definitely and need a different type of methodology maybe more kenicly based but it is imperfect we address this so many of our kids that don't know how to read end up on the streets doing in prison things
1:09 am
like that so and then additionally, we would like to see in terms of achievement outcome increased professional training positive behaviors and intervention generally the school district has moved to the practice model i'm perp thrilled because in terms of disciplinary issues special ed children are disappropriately targeted with superstitions to give you an idea of how suspensions can effect just one suspension in florida the researchers from johnston hopkins university look at the ninth graders in increase in would be suspension the graduation rates dipped to 52
1:10 am
percent and 42 percent it dips to 38 percent anything we can do to address the special ed and other targeted communities to deal with something other than suspension this alarming article i read called piecemeal to prison special education too often leads to jail for american children and refers to rather than dealing with - like in a punitive way towards behavior they should you know the administration should look at the disorder because the children try to stimuli their
1:11 am
behavior has to be understood. >> last year when the cac report to the board of education there were a number of recommendations around technology as it relates to equitable assessed the district has made strives no technology in the past year are specifically with the innovation center an incredible resource for staff and families, however, we recommend greater and better use of technology in the classroom to support the students as well as to communicate with families additionally, we would encourage the district to give tier 2 and tier 3 sites greater latitude for prioritizing their needs and things as just to highlight a partnership that the destruct has with common sense media the
1:12 am
sfusd is partnering that common sense media to provide comprehensive programs with the goal of hermosa beach students to responsible use the digital media for life and specifically to students with special needs they have developed a guide that provides information around app and games to produce learning and off fun ways to engage students is a great resource for the kids and families on the topic of shared ownership and accountability welds to commends our special education leadership for in their approach to inclusion and mobbing it is a top down approach the special education students are priority
1:13 am
for the most part that led to positive outcomes for their son and many others in the district as well the shared ownership the one general education professionals and special education professionals of all students even those we i public works build the communities at those sites which are the model it is very impressive to see that change tot to past couple of years and that focus be implemented certain areas we need growth and improvements making sure that the district has done great strides in translating all materials into multiple languages for easy access for multiplied community we see a lag in specific i e p
1:14 am
estimates and other individual documents being translated and it is problematic prairie ever particularly that have families only one do i day to not get the documents for one meeting until two weeks ago later causes a huge delay no services or to appropriately respond we say an idol information if parental communities it is a big challenge we i'd like to commend the district for their moving towards the credential clearing for special education features huge for actually retaining our special education teachers and allowing them to stay in the district and provided continuity to the students so thank you
1:15 am
very much for helping to develop the preamble and moving forward with that. >> oh, and this year inclusive week will be bigger a competent that meets so expect big things the first week of december and not part of presentation but very much like to invite all families to the family empowerment conference on october 17th it is being held and martin luther king mission high school with the collaboration between the corin woods by the african-american and special education and the urban language learn siding i apologize many working groups to help understanding how to get
1:16 am
ascertainment and hopefully engage in the power and lastly we did want to encourage actually more talk about this document this is the collaborative from the inner what is the urban collaborative it was the document give to us in september of 2010 based on a special needs they find us the district lack several points has nothing to do with it was viewed the programs rather than services were being offered and too much of an emphasis on separating the kids out of environment that might be special ed kids and they were also talked about this issues of disappropriate outlet like
1:17 am
african-american children 7 times more app to be identified as emotionally - and we wanted everybody to encourage everyone to reread it i reread that this is what i have to say about it because i've been around for a long time and you know in the special ed community i have to say when i first start i felt that was just a nightmare in dealing with special ed department and i don't feel that the only a lot of the recommendations that this survey made were actually implemented and it was actually very refreshing to read this, of course not everything is perfect but the district is definitely trying to reach out to the community about that and really
1:18 am
look at specific cases, however, i do think in general the- i talked to dr. about it she uses this as staven plan in reading it i see she in fact, did i want to give her kudos she drafting a new plan in the works and hopefully that will having addressed a lot of the issues that might be more of a historical document than anything else so i want to thank you for your time we were cob june 28th to talk about exciting things we you'll see and at this point if i have any questions we'll field them and make the doctor answer as many as possible. >> thank you, ms. russel i'm glad to hear our nightmare is
1:19 am
ending we have one speaker cards. >> good evening commissioners superintendant guerrero thank you others cac to all of them accept especially lee and kate i've learned so much about special education by going to their monthly meetings and hearing from the parents is the most important things i'll urge anyone that is interested to try to make it to a meeting they're interesting and the parents are so devoted to the students and the program it is an inspiration thank you for they're recorded. >> thank you very much any questions or comments from my questions or comments commissioner norton and commissioner fewer. >> thank you for your report i have to reflective on a little
1:20 am
bit on - i mean like you ms. reluctantly things have go changed not everything has changed but still things we can work on and always have to work on this is not an easy area but i just really want to commend the cac for the work you've done and the partnership that is forged with the district the tone it different from the report years ago till when i was on the cac i don't think we were - as you were and appreciative of the partnership with the district i just that that is a huge step forward so thank you all deserve a real thank you and acknowledgment for that i do have one question about the report specific when about the recommendation to provide for flexibility to tier 2 and 3
1:21 am
schools in resource allocation what does that look like or an example what you mean'd like to understand that more. >> i think just from a general standpoint our understanding is that the way we resources are allocated it is the district saying you're a tier 2 or tier 1 those are the resources we think you need based on the day we have it is based on the destructions discussions to give the sight a little bit more flexibility no terms of saying hey, you see our needs we see our need maybe another way to make sure there or agreement and understanding in terms of resources that are being shifted to tier 2 or tier 3 are resources they feel that
1:22 am
those are resources that will be best utilized. >> deputy superintendant my instinct that is about the first it ration of multi tier that allot not just students with special education but you know all - all schools thinking about all students with manner of needs and challenges ask for that flexibility we are implementing them. >> i'd like add scomploern that is in collaboration with the school community to have the accurate understanding about the needs of those students and in the inspection of any specific school sites so part of our continuing to view progress i think we've gotten more in fact about the understanding of the
1:23 am
needs to match the flexible support and interventions to addressing the equality gaps the process included lots of dialogue between site leaders a department leaders or leaders to see what supports seems more appropriate and moving into the multi tiers of 4.0 we every year continue to get more sophisticated in understanding the current conditions and capacity of any given schools it's our goals to and then the interventions that are appropriate at the same time, we continue to make sure that as possible we are increasing the indirect resourcing of sites to make a lot of those decisions within the school community as well. >> thank you. i had one other question or actually for dr. black man could i appreciate the
1:24 am
comments around inclusion and we've made a lot of process and things have improved we've made a commitment to include the practices i know part of what makes that difficult is that we need to support all our educators in the classroom that that means with the resources and things like that i hear that a lot if usf they've been focused so brown belonging could i'm interested in the recommendation of training and sort of where are we in supporting all our educators in supporting the children with dablts and broadening out the training and understanding the inclusive training. >> we're really working closely with the curriculum department
1:25 am
to find ways we can we've training together so there's not a like train e l a that didn't include the contract from autism or four classrooms we're starting to educate in a way with our teachers and partners to look at the child was one whole group of children and starting to look at the universal design for learning fraction in your leadership teams we also meet with superintendant gerrero and also working on that area there is not as many opportunities to pull teachers out because of our substitute situation and time away from children so we're having more preach of coming to sites and
1:26 am
training sites we have a lot of online opportunities for co-teachers to go in and learn about co-teachering i think we're approaching it with multi tasks and making sure that we're emphasizing that work across the program for general addition and special education of teachers we have heard the concerns if huey and our staff and doing everything they can to make sure we're having tints for general ed and special education teachers together and looking forward. >> commissioner fewer. >> so i want to thank you for your meeting last there you go thank you very much for this report he and thank you for your service for volunteering and being on the all volunteer committee i have a couple of
1:27 am
questions recycle i'm wondering and hearing through the grapevine we're having an increase population of els that have i e p i don't know if this is drew you've mentions one thing about the translation an issue other concerns from non-english speaking my daughter had an i v it is you know it is pretty involved and technical and some is parents themselves having to advocate to make sure your common cold it getting services required by law have you heard anything from any thoughts persons of the el students. >> last night i tenants the bilingual communities have a b
1:28 am
cc what. >> yeah. >> i never been there before it struck me geeze i live a bilingual household and thinking i'm perfectly fluent in english if he went to the meetings it would be a disaster and he's got relying good ervin but seriously i took him one time to a school interconnection he said i didn't understand a thing they said i e p is a legal document and it is very difficult special education of your fluent in english is hard to understand it beyond my apprehension and some of the parents have difficulty reading
1:29 am
their own languages in a way not only a matter of translation but explaining. >> this is a element around that the language is technical and the language actually is pretty specialized so i've wondering you don't have to answer now but i'd like a conversation how well, we're be serving our esl around this language a completely new concept you have to advocate for your children versus handing them over to the school district i think the advocacy part is huge especially the child and also want to echo about the piecemeal we have a charter school in the couldn't jail men's facility 50 percent of inmates were i e p we have to
1:30 am
stop that pipeline and own that 60 percent in the council jail like we own your students into harvard university or uc berkley and want to commend the district for the success helping them clear their credible a huge way to build a stable well qualified team in the future and attract the best and bring out it quite frankly to san francisco state university to help our students thanks so much. >> follow-up on your comments about outreach is one of our big pushes this year we're work with the parents liaisons particularly on the southeast see of the city that's one of our big pushes and part of the reason we're eager to help to co-sponsor the family empowerment conference we have deborah not here but taerntd the
1:31 am
steering committee meetings and helping to suggest working groups beneficial for that parents working groups in he u p not just in english but in spanish not translated in speech. >> but hopefully in cantonese i can't speak it that but the assessment process that is a huge barrier for first of all, receiving the services and those are two what we hope will be very educational and they provide those workshops as much was we can. >> thank you for doing that and for the listening audience i gurgle you all to come there is something for everyone to learn. >> commissioner fewer i want to follow up on your comments i'm the co-chair the b cc a year ago
1:32 am
it was be looking at identified esl who having also have i e p and the number of students is 2 thousandish so you know is translation and interpretationer interpretation is an over issue but understanding the reclassification for the judge an el can be challenging and they have angie p is more challenging so i know that the b cc would love to have the doctor back and look at the recommendation a juror nature ago to look at what, if anything, and how to advance those needs and if and when we would like to have you back. >> next, i have commissioner vice president haney and commissioner walton. >> i also wanted to thank you for your work and report i'm glad to hear improvements and
1:33 am
positive things to report i also wanted to thank you for bringing up this issue of the school to prison pipeline and some of the questions around positive interference and supports we recently coming out of the school policies we developed and still adopted in growing as you may know the behavorial interference matrixes on of the things i'm happy to see for the specific categories of students including students with i e p defensive of steps to be taken and we want to make sure when there are behavorial interferences they're positive and done with the understanding the full sxeks and services that a student is receiving and especially in the case of i e p make sure that everyone
1:34 am
especially students are involved in that conversation and in any behavorial interferences took place in i e p i'm sure you're aware of but ask you if this has been a conversation you've been involved in and as a committee and if potentially you're hearing about or seeing changes that year was the fifth floor to roll out the magic you'll see more of it in terms of changing how we operate by maybe that is something that we can continue the conversation about thomas and make sure that we're doing this right and getting you, your input and wear hearing from parents and from students and educators about how this is operating and how we can tweak the matrix of the work well, if
1:35 am
meeting the needs of students with i u p you can respond or wanted to flag that to figure out how to continue that conversation immediately way flagged the needs to make sure our educators and paraprofessionals have support and training in the restoreic practices. >> i think that that was actually, one the i am pets of us in the local plan the indexing and the excuse me. sorry with the law having changed and the functional behavorial analysis i think that everything is fluid; right? and but what i think we can confidentially say through the throughout the process and if local plan is updated and as new
1:36 am
policies are implemented we have a say and a very collaborative ripper with the special ed department i personally feel grateful to be part of this administration as opposed to the horror stories about the previous environments well, you know if you want to get the services you'll have to do that we're part of a collaborative and supportive investments that has the kids best interests in mind as opposed to the bottom line. >> commissioner walton. >> again, thank you so much for your report a couple of questions if you feel the district is not be responsive we or will you come here before june 16th and let us know and the second one again, i appreciate our calling your attention to the piecemeal
1:37 am

1:38 am
my attendance is more sporadic but trying to build collaboration between the two and you've attended some of the meeting and dewayne and others i feel that this awareness and the needs for collaboration between the two is definitely raised and again co-sponsors the parents is helpful and ruth is a great support with outreach too and the thank for laura savage we have only so many hours in the day and parents volunteers that are parents and some of us with full time jobs it is difficult to go everything we want to see or do but i think there is a lot more collaboration and we're getting along with that. >> thank you, thank you. >> commissioner wynns and superintendant gerrero. >> thank you all for your work
1:39 am
and it is very important we get to have you come and report to us i appreciate it i want to ask a followup to the staff about the pb i s training for the paris i understand when we trained were school teams and that they have a train responsibility and implementation responsibility of the school site i have concern i don't want to you know single out people to be trained not in their school teams and so the way that we you know what we require or how we expect there are to be kind of bring that implementation to scale with the whole school is - so i'm going to ask the staff if i
1:40 am

1:45 am
over the second communication to the parents makes it sound like the school is evenly divided by the mission development and the people that supported that is not accurate it was quite clear from the meeting notes taken by a staff person the majority stated they wished the school district would support the community in opposing this project that is harmful to the marshall community the most important miss statement from the original flier were not retracked non-the parents said they felt intimidate by community activists none i repeat none stated that that is a very serious shuks secondly, he didn't retract that at all, and, secondly, in his original flier he stayed the parents
1:46 am
requested no future meeting at marshall in fact the parents were promised further meeting at this time further meetings are not necessary the project is nostril moving there is no longer contract to purchase the land between the seller and buyer in litigation that will probably not be development for years but we hope when this issue come up in the future that the parents will not be mislead or misrepresented and that any communication from the parented be with the school board members not through carranza. >> (speaking foreign language.) >> good evening. i'm maria.

2:50 am
superintendant mentioned that but the new principal of willie brown is in saturdays paper not mentioned today is a t n p graduate a successful program for the past 9 years at phillip and berry son school and the vice presidents of the united ministers we want to give him the support he's an excellent commitment to bring the leadership to that school that is needed based on the comments your heard from the parents and students so we support him and want to make sure you support him thank you very much. >> p thank you, no others public comment cards under item f we move to item g consent calendar

2:52 am
non-retroactive and the explanation deleted and o.j. on and package 167 under dates of service beginning 2016 not 2015 and resolution. >> thank you very much any act items remove by the board seeing none, any withdrawn seeing none, roll call vote will take place under section objection we're on agenda superintendent proposals we'll be dealing with substitute resolution s p one only board policy on the order of business for the agenda that was moved
2:53 am
forward and second may have are reporter from the rules committee ms. chin. >> thank you the rules committee gave a positive recommendations to both of the parts of by laws i want to point out that actually, i think that for your simplification instead of trying to go through kind of a typo there it should say an page one where the description is the first bullet the designation of the pch should be ta c but those bullets explain the changes we're proposing to make that more workable so i can read them if you want for that the benefit of the public or refer to them. >> yes. please. so ross the changes that are
2:54 am
being suggested the language in the resolution before you but the summary so one item would combine the advisory committee reports and appointment to one section and remove the designation which we saw deemed today that says the pack report it says will be every meeting we put that in the rules instead of it will say executor advisory committee and the pack will only be listed on the first meeting of the month that's when they get the report that's the recommendation we thought would be better the second bullet is to put the issue of the board members resolution and superintendents resolution into one item that is separate and clearly describe this is about the first reading so they'll be listed which also it is the next
2:55 am
simplification to allow for an announcement and committee assignment with a single item all the first reading from the superintendent or the board will be one item read out not the town hall consent only the titles by the president so that will say those are the first reading that the board is considering that will be before the board and assigned to committee the confusion that we basically treat our first reading like the second reading did not actually explain that the purpose is a public notice when the board is going to consider the fourth bullet is to clearly describe changing section q to what we're doing when we propose to suspend the rules and then
2:56 am
the next bullet is adding a section for memorial adjournment we have in our same agenda in our closed session if we have on a few occasions if you remember had our closed session congress into open section and adjournment none it listening to when we honor someone make sure that is done others regular meeting that is broadcast and people are listening and the last is that we have agreed we have will have a report on items and actions in closed session from previous closed session especially those that does not have are expanded alone so it is at regular meeting for the public that licenses and watches
2:57 am
will actually have here the report of the actions that the board has taken in closed session so we urge your passage to try to make it simpler more assessable for people more logical that's what i'll say all the discussion that the committee has been about that and try to take make that more transparency and take away packness some goes with the complexity of the requirements but those changes our efforts to try to make that more understandable to us and the public. >> may i have the reading the resolution by council hook. >> president murase would i like me to read the entire policy or just the requested auction just the windows action. >> thank you (laughter) there requested action to

3:22 am
but the school district as a classroom reilly bringing to light and bear all the incredible employees we have and the credible career and exposure to young people in the district i'll say i'll call that a practice what we preach resolution we're asking companies and the city we're asking the community to step up and help us serve the young people and hire them and this is a way for us to say how can we do that better ourselves every level looking at you know hoping because of those interning working with the board of education in this building really we have to join together and really partner in every possible way and be able to demonstrate to the city and to the companies and everything

else this is how you do it right and actually set a goal and track data and create a pipeline internally and hire a young person to thrive in san francisco that are high reconciled we've actually done if we go to salesforce or tech companies or whoever we want to show we can be that model not only but to create piecemeal for our students to work in high paid jobs and unions so that partnerships with the higher institutions the data we'll track i know we went back and forth on that but to put in here your human resources department is actually going to not only prioritize but guarantee an interview so for those who went through concern pathways is an
3:24 am
incredible powerful statement how serious we are and how we're going going to put our actions where our ideals are so i'm excited about that i think there is a lot of meeting need to happen in premise to make it real but what the outcomes for i don't know people as we those o see those numbers bump up especially with the huge needs with this year with the teacher shortage and employee shortage we should for the most part guarantee look to our own communities and our resources our students to file those opportunities first so thank you to everyone who was a part and commissioner walton for your tremendous leadership in a future of our students and their ability to live here and thrive

3:27 am
because of the history of city college and the day with the revenue and see the kind of circular and other infrastructure for criteria and education has been weak how how commitment to it is weak for a a long time and particularly today, we know the way we actually help students to prepare for the real world experience is to give them the real world experience and not saying we're doing vocational education we continue to have to your college and career departments what i think of as kind of small and inadequate interning and programs i think this is a huge step forward he appreciate commissioner walton exercise and this is what he
3:28 am
does in professional life but i also on the amount of work and the talk about it at the committees with the staff i want to thank the staffer for the analysis and the work they've done has juggling gotten us to some place with the real hope we'll make a change in the future a change we needed for a a long time so i appreciate the sentiments of our colleagues and the enthusiasm and proud to be part of it i know we've pass it thank you very much. >> commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell. >> i'd like to respectfully ask the authors if i could be added to the resolution. >> thank you. i just want to wrap up this item by about he you saying this is a way for san francisco unified school district to approach it states so it is really in keeping with the vision 2025 i did have a

3:32 am
>> commissioner wynns. >> we do this as a routine matter one of the interesting things to see what is not there so it is kind of educational and makes me want to go further about the science lab and equipment i presume and behave it should be said for anybody life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? unbelievable how everything is there the number of schools that don't have the equipment the textbooks and the curriculum materials, etc. is so small given the size of our system it is really amazing and the staff is to be commended but the things missing are scientific science lab equipment i'd like a curriculum issue to look at that
3:33 am
into it and see how to address it thank you very much. >> colleagues, i stand corrected about mr. stevens is required to read the two resolve clauses i'm reading the now be it therefore resolved of page 31 embodying that the san francisco unified school district as determined as of the structural materials hearing held on september 29, 2015, each pupil has sufficient textbooks and arithmetic in science and ervin language including the english language user language the adopted program and embodying that each pull i will has tacks and structural materials in foreign health classes and the equipment lab for the core

3:35 am
getting them now for the students for those classes? >> so we what i've learned in and time we've conducted two surveys the survey that relates to williams materials and conduct a kinds of lab equipment it is not technically required by law it is the plan as we roll out the next generation standards in the coming year we'll have a desecrated baseline for the scientific equipment noted to date up to this moment site based budgeting that provides that lab material and the departments steps in where there is material missing to context the labs with the lending locations or try to facilitate the changes between
3:36 am
the schools for particular labs. >> maybe the correct me if i am wrong i had a discussion with the science folks they said they are sending out unique commensurable goods it is supply-side by the office when i look at this that's why i'm asking i'm wondering that - so if they were to put in a request and say i'd like this sort of these spilled will they get them or is this fund not for this but more con subconsciously goods and whatever frogs or whatever we use to disseuse to dissect at
3:37 am
out no excuse to do it i'm wondering looking at this list is it a different fund we're talking about or i don't know so you explain that to me. >> i'll try my best we have within in the process of stocking the materials related to what we call farther kids a period of years not stocking those kits we've now essentially a small warehouse on the m clarion site to provide those kits for the elementary schools that request those materials we're not up to a full district wide warehouse but to build up to the warehouse over the next couple of years as the science standards are rolled auto at the
3:38 am
high school different from the elementary school we've provided a supplemental and allowing the schools to make purposes the science department wants to see is allocation are larger and the other schools but two funds depending on whether or not our elementary school or secondary. >> it won't cover those things on the other hand, they look big like ramps and steel balls you know those types of things that sounds more expensive than what your supplying and that's correct and okay. thank you. >> no further questions roll call please. >> ms. fewer mr. haney ms. mendoza-mcdonnell ms. norton mr. walton ms. wynns dr. murase. >> 7 i's.

3:41 am
who will be sharing enrollment
3:42 am
projections. >> good evening commissioners i'm happy to share some of your preliminary results if the folks to develop the enrollment projections for sfusd i'm start by sharing the context there are really steven shifts that are transforming san francisco and over hundred and 74 thousand people will need for housing units by 2030 and getting results from park merced and the shipyard and vision 2025 a vision to transform the public schools for our portfolio we're
3:43 am
coming off a period of unenrollment and on a 1994 to 2008 considerably enrollment and we mreergd a lot of the schools since 2008 the our enrollment has been growing an upward trend we want to have a sense of the future enrollments so we can think about what we need to do to perpetrated to support the needs of the city and the families in the future so a work of developing the enrollment projection. >>i'm give an overly an steven reports they'll share in the next month hopefully, but i want to give a high-level overview and highlight the key understanding the work they've done with the enrollments projections are exercises
3:44 am
showing possible future enrollment that make assumes about future trends that's important because there will be a series of ravages to consider they vary depending on the assumptions so the approach we've taken is collaborative so the democrat giraffes have been working with the economic & workforce development and the mayor's office of housing and community development to get access to all available data that will help us develop the best enrollment projections at sfusd's so shell and again and again what are with the democrat giraffes have been incredible partners and really rigorous amount of research to develop the projections this work is ongoing not the first or the last time the district has created enforcement in 2002 and
3:45 am
2010 and 2013 we development the forecast the enrollment from housing growth was close to the forecast and the actual encroachment was closed to the medium forecast we plan to continue to evaluate this the method at the looked at existing housing and in ink students with existing housing that is looking at bitter to kindergarten that is basically looking at the number of children born from the city and how many enroll in kindergarten it is 50 percent of student births and i have groveling in kindergarten and most recently it like 54 or 57 percent an increase of children barron born in san francisco improperly if sfusd and one of the best predicts and how
3:46 am
children age through the grade if we end up with a large cohorts that will go into middle school and historically and elementary schools transitioned into the high school and the great analysis that take into account the fact that some students leave and some enter the districts not a straight prompt but a analysis that look at that go we noticed with our promotions at elementary school their stable and their bagging at a lower level and high school their sitting down lower had say this is a probation officer thing and look at it new housing to determine the impact that will have on enrollment growth so the two together is what we look at when we create the
3:47 am
enrollment projections the significant part is analyzing the stougdz and the bitter a k ratio and doing analysis around the housing so here are the key understanding what we statute our enforcement about ton to grandson the cohorts into into middle school and high school there is uncertainty and the extents is for the student geoand the south of market and treasure island have the largest cohorts the boyer has the largest 11 percent of all students enrolled in bayview is from there no other neighborhood has that large and experience the greatest growth of new students from now housing in the bayview 31 percent of new students will live in the
3:48 am
bayview a i'm going to talk about enrollment projections for existing hours as i mentioned it will continue to grow the ranks it depends on the assumptions and the method that is used but fairly save we at the present time, by 2023, 3 to 6 more k through 8 students to somewhere between 60 and 62 thousand from 2030 we see 6 hundred for students pie 2023 we'll give you the reports it will show you all the information and the mission high school continue to experience growth by 2023, 12 hundred more and at the high schools for the immediacy future
3:49 am
stable maybe a slight decline but the bubble will move both high school by 20 if a thousand for students enrolled in the high schools i'm going to talk about enrollment for new housing so students yields look at the anchorage number of students per housing units and projections can vary significantly depends upon the assumption in past conversations that the boards i think the commissioners have shared their desire to spend a lot of time looking at student yields and to consider the methodology ear using and consider changing the patterns i'm going to into that e into that the record will have the details just to illustrate it is important just a we're going to get 70 thousand new houcht if we
3:50 am
use the yields of '070 but 2 two we're project 14 new students that is a significant range that is important to base our assumes on the cafe information and continue to monitor it so this slide is a bit dense in our hunt it illustrated to show you that new housing by 2040 we've done two yield scenarios one uses the call low yield simulation it is bans historical patterns we we modified it an average simulation it reveals between 7 to 12 though new students k through 12 by 2040 and once the
3:51 am
units are built being part of the enrollment profile to show you the growth about happen over time not overnight fortunately, we have data that indicates the start and ends date thought you housing development that is over a period of time we'll build up to the 2020 project if you want to consider the historical you know yield numbers that will be the red bar and if you want to modify them to different assumes about molesters then that be will the higher yield bar or the imply bar chart so there's 5 major developments that we're devoting some is treasure island and yerba buena
3:52 am
and about 20 percent is projects k through 12 combrorlt growth from new housing we don't anticipate that so start before 2020 that's on of the population things at a different date but anticipate from 2 and a half thousand students based on our current understanding of the housing development plans for treasure island hunters point shipyard that you can represents 13 percent of the projected enrollment growth and you'll see the rank is significant but it is also a fairly significant students the low ends 8 hundred and high 1 quality and mission bay park
3:53 am
merced and again those ranks are varying because of the summations we want to apply them we definitely needs more information to refine oar assumptions for example, market rate housing will be described this information we've not gotten assess for example, you know whether a tower a condos or townhouse the variation depends on the market rate housing and units and how many units are dedicated to seniors and we want to use the number of single-family units when calculating those we need to get ann's and more information about the bedroom especially those that contain no children f that is some of the ongoing
3:54 am
additional work we need to do this slide on slides 19 shows the growth by neighborhoods again yields year-old and this is again growth on housing not has to do with only new housing so across the first line with the abhorring a number of new developments listed and again we're prospective juror if 25 hundred to 37 hundred that's quite a range in the bayview to the right-hand side i put the number of k through 12 this gives us a sense of the density in terms of the number of school age children as you can see your potentially going going if 6 to 8 thousand or 10 thousand students living in the bayview
3:55 am
by 2014 this is a sensed of the growth of the neighborhood that is a extension so the black bar in each neighborhoods is the number of students that are currently living in that neighborhood not about enrollments by the way, only residential patterns and then the blue bar shows the low year-old year-old is a as you can see the distinct patterns to where we can expect students from new housing to live so the larger growth is bayview and south of market and treasure island and the financial district and lakeshore so, now i'm going to show you what the enrollment projections if you combine new housing we've reviewed some of the additional growth might be based on existing housing and then with
3:56 am
the new housing i'll show you which you annoyance the two as you can see based on summaries this is on this 2023 but 2040 is out there we expect the growth this is again existing new housing combined anywhere from 7 to 12 thousand additional students in usd's staufdz by 20 if you, see the base 47 thousand student at the low forecast if we have another 3 thousand from existing housing and 4 to tell us from new housing that comes to 64 thousand students and if we look at the higher forecast we're looking at 69 thousand students today was 57 and we're
3:57 am
going proposing by 2023 from 64 to 69 thousand that's a significant growth to recap the key findings over enrollment will continue to grow and the large from elementary school to high school and unsincerely about the magnitude and the extent is assumes about the vldz and certain neighborhoods most of the growths particular in bayview and south of market and treasure island and again bayview has over 6 thousand students and they're going to receive the greatest number of students from new housing based on the information we have that's pretty important in terms of next steps we'll continue to craft the with for the public i'm giving you of you a high-level but the rigor and
3:58 am
analysis that has been done been by the democrat giraffgraphers o we'd like to get that to the boards hopefully within the in relation month we will continue to base this on findings in an earlier slides i described the information from the city and others so we can continue to refine our student vldz we want to share the information with the key stakeholders is it so at a high-level some information we can inform policy decisions so we can use the information to inform policy decisions and that concludes my presentation. for this evening >> thank you, commissioners.
3:59 am
>> thank you very much there are no public speakers 0 colleagues commissioner vice president haney. >> widen i don't know if i more by the nourishes or how cool our power point it is this power point it is really wow. everybody oh, dang. >> my case is kind of funky is that why none sits here you talk commissioner. >> so, yeah i mean it sounds like we're going to get a much more detailed report i think
4:00 am
what kind of freaks me out we - our schools are full in the advisory committee of the bumpy opening of a new school that makes me (inaudible) sorry i do wonder are we going to get a sort of a sense when do the first of those students start to arrive it seems like we will really need to prioritize and have good information if we need to build new schools which ones do we build first, it takes a a long time to builds one school if we have to build 3. >> yes. commissioner absolutely we're looking at the timeline for the developments so that will inform decision about how there might be a press needs
4:01 am
and focus our resources based on the build out plan for each development and the timeline for doing that. >> you know i've said that before i know that the demographers are going to detail their assumptions in the report but i also wanted to caution us i'm concerned it sends a lodge message i don't know my mike - >> i think that sending the wrong message for us to say that maifrts the yield are so low understand there is a lot of different factors that go into that the number ever berms we are talking about one bedroom condos versus 3 bedroom town housing and southern is more likely to attack families i don't want to send the message it somehow i think the last time
4:02 am
we did that we messaged this low income housing does attract students that is damaging and i think we need to be really, really explicit what goes into our assumptions and have policy discusses how we can effect those assumptions with other decisions going forward so i just don't want to see a yield this kind of housing will only give us one student for every 10 units or things like that we need to be - we just need to really explain why we make the assumptions we do and also make remedies how this can disrupt the assumptions if their not favorable. >> commissioner fewer and back
4:03 am
to commissioner vice president haney. >> thank you for that was very informative what we kind of needed to, to move forward and particularly the discussions that hydra and i have been having with planning it looks like they don't build where they are planning thank you so because treasure island's in the financial district i'm so used to have banks there so i think i'm looking at dog patch like you know we never had anything there except wanted to go do gastroencounter reluctance u restaurants i'm concerned the 5 years to build the schools with willie brown it costs us $44 million so i'm very concerned about those and those are modesty projections i agree what commissioner norton we can't seem that market rate
4:04 am
housing will not yield us a large student body from the developments i think the lecturer housing is a little bit different than the market rate housing which is crazy to even say rights it's like we're dealing the maneuvering is so expensive but than a luxury rate the luxury kind of hours being built we may not capture a lot of students but the manifest we have an opportunity to do so i personally would love to capture every school age child for the school system i fear chart and private schools i don't need to remind everyone on the boards and everyone in the room we're goodwill an obligation for free public education for everyone what scares me those finding are
4:05 am
that if we're are there others who wish to speak this new housing we're probably looking at younger children in first and second grade and kindergarten and first grade must be on the firefighter of every building in san francisco we intentionally build up it limits our ability to capture the new is it so our big boom will be the candy and first graders as families as younger folks have families that is going to be the crutch we had that before and had to cut classrooms in one half i don't know if you remember that maybe jill; right? jill al me we had to cut the classrooms we didn't have one now we're sloped to max
4:06 am
out at it it per students per classroom 22 or 24 whatever it is not the 35 stds students that in my child was ♪ kindergarten we're going to have huge problems if we don't act quickly it takes us 5 years to build a school and so expensive and he can't even make sense of this how to build what what we're middle-income out maxed out if you're telling us to increased the enrollment in cortex through 5 we are going have a hugeer increase in the enrollments with middle school we're maxed out man we should continue it
4:07 am
discussion maybe around in the student assignment meeting we'll be having it is about projections for student assignments and then i think we probably needs furthers analysis a little bit more analysis of the trends in economics in our public schools and your public school system so are we seeing less and less families and poverties level or families more middle-income affluence as we know increasing more expensive in san francisco the demographics are parents president obama interested in improperly back into our schools those types of i think that type of examination might give us more direction about what we can
4:08 am
expect you know when we is that most of growth will be also at treasure island's but not have a school at treasure island i feel like we need to get neutron on the game earlier when planning is giving permits for huge unions where we don't have schools that maybe we should are requested lands for schools and proper being said maybe when they were negotiating all the variances they said for the development maybe we should have been to the table this concentration of new development is going to demands a stand alone school within the proximity we have zero schools there maybe part the planning and maybe it is all will
4:09 am
ludicrously in san francisco so set aside the lands to build a school you you think maybe we should have done years ago but into the piecemeal we need to come to the tackle now i'm looking this like we'll be a little bit behind the curve i think that is our goal to capture every cancel age children we educate students the best of any educational system or institution i believe in san francisco thank you >> commissioner vice president haney and commissioner bobbie wilson commissioner wynns. >> thank you, again how awesome the graphics were i want to echo the two comments before and say that parts of the question
4:10 am
that some of our projections and the way we think about them are they self-philosophically prophesies we're going to get x percentage of the developments we're not going to put a school there or respond in a way that attack observing students we sort of end up with the individual one of the questions i'll put out there do we have a goal of increasing do we want to get on the higher ends that effects the decisions in terms of not just where we put schools but the lessons now from why folks enroll and where they enroll and the choices they make obviously this information of the public schools generalized
4:11 am
it is important but the overhead school aged children particularly the roll is to grow enrollments we want to be more aggressive as commissioner fewer said this is our responsibility and a goal we have i think that that was changing the way we think about that obviously to be realistic about the projections but important to think about our goals as the school district to you u how to serve as many students where they are so i think we can continue this conversation in the student assignment committee and many of those i agree with commissioner fewer important to be at the table as early as possible and putting developments would you tell us consulting the school district but at the same time
4:12 am
many of the developments i think are at least a few years ago out maybe more than that even though yesterday would have been better than today in terms of making those decisions for four or five years this is an important time to have the conversation we expect the buildings will be betsy carmichael how so the timing is important but if we talk about this in three or four years it will be too late i think the timing is good but important to think about our goals i'd like to imagine we want to end up on the higher
4:13 am
ends the individuyield. >> those are big numbers there are we're sitting here what have we got so i'm looking at those those are the conversation i want to start we need to look at the land and buildings we have especially the underutilized ones and start thinking what can we for instance, a school on treasure island not used as a school and interesting enough like the other buildings i don't know who owns them it was owned by the navy; right? >> the city owned it because thankful taken over treasure island but we have to look at the assets we modesty might have
4:14 am
to apply i have questions about the oz demographics not only stunning but raised sort of follow-up detailed questions i think appropriate we can ask at the stated assignment committee why the low and high yield at packard or park merced is so high we don't have to do that now but a sort of greater details on the demographics considerations as something that is appropriate to where the student assignment committee and also for the student assignment committee it seems to me that reveals issues around where our kids go to school their we
4:15 am
already know not enough capacitate and that's where the vast majority will go so this is important information and everybody is right that has spoken we have to get on this right away we can't not engage that as strongly as we can as quickly as possible because the school district will not be prepared thank you for all the work and by the way, all the demographic projections we've gotten from those demographers have proven to be true so they know our community and told those things the one thing
4:16 am
interestingly enough i'll have to go back i don't remember them telling us that in 2015 we'll have no space for mission high school can i see, in fact, so i don't mean pa facetiously what kinds of things are unanticipated to incorporate some of the preparing for things that are unexpected but history tells us things are happen thank you. we'll have a lot more to discuss henceforward. >> commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell. >> great this is exciting so we've i don't know. i think sandra and i talked about that
4:17 am
planning group we've had for a few months that over and over la and others have been dialoguing with some of the city folks the planning department and the mayor's office of housing and actually supervisor kim's office and a lot of those stem from the ideas of how to get our hands an understanding what planning is doing you know and what their obligation do do this kind of outreach and well what happens is up to the developer to come in you know and let us know what they're doing if they choose to and you know planning is doing the poise of it i've been through a lot of process and is conversations we'll be having on the urban planning group but more importantly oca f our families council we'll be having
4:18 am
dialogue around what this means, what all of this development means to the school district i'm excited about the different relationship with the folks making decisions we're finally at the table to be bettered planners as well i also wanted to think about you know the list of the promotions that are coming up there is one or two that stick anti that's mission bay and park merced for example, maintaining we had to get the property completed that piece of property sitting in motorbike we have an opportunity
4:19 am
to do something with and i know since all the buildings kind of went up quibble after 2010 a huge slump we now have actually a neighborhood there which we didn't have for a very long time if schools take 5 years plus to build we should be thinking about the communities that are further link versus where we need the largest size and i think how you know we had had mr. larkin for the next school we may want to build they have impacts on the cutters schools that exist rights so are there combining or some other ways for us to build to expands existing sites into some certificate communities we've been tossing over and over those questions around we have to figure out a
4:20 am
process in which to start answering some of the questions but i think it is you know really exist i think we'll start getting pressure particularly prosecute the communities already establishes and i also wanted to say so much of that relates to our bond planning pardon so if not this time around and the next time around how to balance or how do the question tangible i talk to people that are interested in investing we talked about this in 2018 with two investors but if you look at the enrollment that was for the up until 2008 no reason with to think about
4:21 am
building a school in mission bay but there are people out there that will want to consider investing in school in a community so we have to think about that aspect and insuring we have enough few minutes to do that i'm really again existed to see those numbers it is great that they're going in a upward trends i was teasing with commissioner vice president haney that the numbers started going up when i went on the board in 2007 and 8 they start to revise it is really cool great to see but scary it is great to see the growth but scary and i think we've also seen a shift and points that made shifts to families that may
4:22 am
have begun private to public so that's exciting we looked forward to hearing the next phase of analysis and when do you think that poise will happen. >> their refinancing the reports we're going to complete the reports based on the information we currently have and going to do ask the board to continue to engage the demographers and to continue to get information to refine it so really tease out the ranges that will be an additional scope of work we'll wrap up the work for the last year and generate those and get those to the boards hopefully, if october that's our plan we're in draft kind of right now. >> thank you and just on of the other things on the urban planning committee pleading has
4:23 am
been the opportunities to over lay where you know some of the advertisements is happening and overlay it topping of school map to actually see you know where the housing is going and our schools currently exist once we get the numbers and work with the mohcd we can get closer to seeing that as well. >> thank you. >> i just have one question ever of curiosity do you know what the live birth rates between one thousand births announcing i wonder what that fabulous is new - what that number is now. >> commissioners it, it is
4:24 am
easier to forward to to the boards but we have got it off the top of my head. >> one suggestion he received from the school parents to send letters whenever there's a baby born if san francisco welcoming them to the sfusd family i'd be curious to know that number thank you very much for your comprehensive report we look forward to seeing the final report thank you. >> the next item on the agendas a bickering results this results to the smaller balance assessment that the results within announced superintendant gerrero. >> yes. we have our chief research from john burk this evening provide us with an overview of the baseline results
4:25 am
from the 2015 smallest balance assessment that was administe d
4:26 am
administered. >> okay good evening commissioners i see you dropping the power point and flufrt through it i think we'll go for the and i bridges version we said to cover big topics and set the
4:27 am
participation and focus on the results absence on the student report and maybe the school actions but i think we'll quickly move into the district results and maybe leave some of those for you on our own we've reviewed with you in the parts that are really about the testing and the differences two one year to the next and certainly touch open is participation quicken the state was 95 percent we hit 95.8 in math the current number it 93 percent in english arts but scores results that were connecticut testing that's another 2 and a half percent the state a saying they're not counted as student testing but we were right on or near the target of the nia percent
4:28 am
participation special ed i'll leave that for another time and related to the participation and some of the supports they used and take advantage of and i'm going to turn it over to dr. conna for a deeper looking at the results. >> i want to begin by saying this power point is with the sfusd's website so any communities member public or anyone can view it if you go in sfusd website and go to board presentation you'll in fact see that power point and all the details so again, you can review it in the sfusd website so to begin with the district wide results we want to say we're halfway there 52 percent
4:29 am
of english language are exceeded the standards so 52 percent of our students met or exceeded the standard in ervin language arts within the english language arts the areas that you know we look at how students did and the four areas been reading and writing and listening and research and every inquiry the results are interest for each area where the students were above or blow suicide is shown on the graphucie is shown on th graphs shown on the graphis shown on the graph math 48 percent met or steadfastly standards and the concepts and procedures project
4:30 am
solving and communicating and reasoning and the results are there this aggregating by grade levels this is for each grade level as you can see san francisco is results ranged from 48 percent to 64 percent in grade level grade 11 was higher for the state as well for other districts if you see a doted line that goes drove the green this is what was predicted or estimated from the fold test that which is done last year, i wanted to see how we exceeded that prediction the same trend holds true for math so again, we the better than predicted at every grade level we wanted to report the results by sub groups do when you look
4:31 am
at the sub groups that are seconds and there are challenges so the celebration as you can see all students are 50 percent achieving proficiency and other celebration is at the highest level sub group are on the job initially fluent english proficient which is the students that entered bilingual. >> and in terms of the challenges the two targeted sub groups about do need attention are the african-american students and students with disabilities as at the performance levels were lottery in ervin levels and arts and mathematics some huge genders different when looking at the english arts females performed
4:32 am
and 58 percent proficiency and males 10 percent lowering at 47 percent that same gap was not seen look at the map another area that many districts have been talking about and looking at is economically sdaejdz students versus not economic disadvantaged students i want to show you the arts and math there is a thirty percent gap between economically disadvantaged and not economically sdaejdz let's look at the gap more with regards to ethnicity you have to african-american and latino and filipino the major ethic groups in san francisco from ascending to descending the performer and the two bars for etch ethnicity
4:33 am
representative those not economically disadvantaged and not economically sdaenldz race is a factor irrespective of s c s the african-american performed the lowest and the whites performed the highest in english arts the gap exist for every single ethic group so the gap distinct ses exist for every single ethic group some trend was seen in mathematics again, you can see it from ascending to descending in terms of perform asians performing the highest and african-american the lowest we compared us to other
4:34 am
districts seconds san francisco does have the highest perform as compared to district and the state in la and math okay. we also looked at sub groups as other indignity there was again celebration in challenges are taurthd groups african-american and latinos as a sub group we didn't didn't perform better than the other districts that was true foyer both the la and math but when we looked at the programs to english learners and special ed we did better than most other districts
4:35 am
now we're going to talk about co-relations to other carts we tried to correlate to 2 percent ever targeted students in a school so percent of school that are african-american, latino airing samoan we we saw a very long negative co-relation because as the percentage of targeted students there's the performance decreased okay so about la and math the same was true for chronic absent itch as absent itching increased the performances decreased they were positive strong positive co-relations with the progress district progress measures like the schoolic and same was true
4:36 am
for the common learning assessment so in summary participation more than 25 thousand students participated in this grades 11 we're halfway there and higher than the state and other districts when it comes to program kids but not for african-american and latino kids looking at sub groups we are higher with sub groups but have vast achievement gaps and high co-relations with the district progress measures with high negative restraining order rings with the absenteeism and concentration now we want to take the
4:37 am
opportunity as a parent you should get our students score report if you don't please contact united states i us the report are being mailed coming this friday in this core report out ofnited report are being mailed coming this friday in this core report out ited st report are being mailed coming this friday in this core report out ted sta report are being mailed coming this friday in this core report out ed stat report are being mailed coming this friday in this core report out d statet are being mailed coming this friday in this core report out states are being mailed coming this friday in this core report out states are being mailed coming this friday in this core report out ates i are being mailed coming this friday in this core report out ates i e being mailed coming this friday in this core report out oftes i being mailed coming this friday in this core report out es i us being mailed coming this friday

4:39 am
the assessment of office we have a link to a video from the state and wanted to give a shout out to the parents rebate schools so really great if you have not looked this excellent excellence resource for parents and teachers and videos available and lots of green why questions and activities with their children to really assess the core and really kind of want to come to a great understanding and support the student learning so schools are taking actions with results we've been going through a cycle of inquiry to setting goals and looking at the accommodations with them and then we're looking forward to full implementation of the exposure we will be using the
4:40 am
intern assessment from smarter balance and students get more learning times and looking for the results. >> we will leave a bierpd and give you access to all the commissioners for more details school so we will give us assess to more information we have a binder we'll leave i know in the board office but will give you access to this for school level results you know some upcoming attractions would be to talk about some of the progress measures as well talk about the school qualify improvement indexing that will come out in
4:41 am
the middle of november some abstractions we are talk about later. >> thank you very much questions. >> is there any public comment? seeing none, comments comments or questions from my colleagues >> commissioner walton, commissioner norton and then science commissioner wynns. >> thank you, again i want to reiterate the importance of strategies for earliestcy and making math relevant to real life experiences as we look at the future in terms of what we're doing to educate our students in the district. >> commissioner norton.
4:42 am
>> i don't need an answer tonight i'd be interested in what we learned from the core district, as far as, your sub groups as you said there is a place to celebrate with our overall progress i hope we're digging into the strategies what can we learn from them and as you sort of absorb those results and talk with our partners how are we - what's the results of those cycles ever inquires what are we're going do implement by looking at all of those and looking at it. >> dvpt and that's a great question commissioner norton, in fact, tomorrow we have a exposure superintendent for the
4:43 am
entire agenda focuses largely on some the data trends and where we have a greater level of success and strategies for so we want to extend that among the district leaders to some of the school systems and the teams of staff that are working cross the district that's the right question we'll be did he give down to understand the trends. >> commissioner wynns. >> i have a few questions specific i don't needs an answer unless it's short and maybe explain in a language of someone that's not an stewart or expert why are the long beach in orange as other pages.
4:44 am
>> that's a typo that should have been the state. >> oh, that make sense this is the one or more i presume you're going to need to get me the non-restricted educator version but i don't understand how the district score was achieved because especially on the english language art if you were to as a layperson average those it would be above 52 i don't know how many students are in each cohort i presume that takes a while tell me later and whatever day the curriculum meeting last week you talked about the math scores and the district we've been working with and the scores over time what are you going to show us at
4:45 am
sometime or make an appointment and you'll show me later okay ellis looking forward it that not this late hour i tomato understand how that works thank you. >> commissioner vice president haney. >> i'll pass. >> commissioner fewer. >> so thank you i think it will it can take mia little while and analysis and see how a - get a true xaern are comparison is about the population i laboratory la urban inside and have ten times african-american and all the factors what i - when i look at this i say it looks as to i
4:46 am
could be wrong our gap as wooilgdz after everything we've put in the million dollars and million dollars and million dollars are racial gap is widens i see that you know we tested 23 african-americans and there are proficient i can't say even know what to say at this point, i know this is a baseline year but when i looked at this it kind of i just have to ask are we doing it right? we have to or this strategic plan to close the gap by i look at this i think the gap has wielthd i wish this was
4:47 am
some formula or something to tell us how you do it and other districts have done it and we could copy them all districts are struggling but under san francisco i feel like our population of african-american is it so is so small and i think the most important thing about this is is concentration of rational isolation couples with poverty as we see how the income social economic level is really huge gap across the board but in particular in these - and applause when you show us those scores plus we look at the comparisons of schools that have how concentrations of african-american and we look at
4:48 am
the all those things it is like this horrible storm sorts of all those factors attacking those schools that have those high concentrations and high turnover the teachers and repeatedly repeating repeating it is not the students but the system those kids their deserve more than that i feel like something we are doing so i know that is really easy sometimes wu when you look at scores lyle line oh, the kids are not doing well that is a report card on us i felt that way with the crazy standardized tests but what that was a sort of cluster of what we're doing i can say looking at this book in particular i think that we are not serving whole
4:49 am
populations of students and i hope that this is baseline year and next year that will be really, really good but i don't know if it will be i mean unless we change some of the factors we know highly trouble to our students not meeting their academic potential but thank you for this presentation that was sobering but very, very informative thanks. >> i want to say one thing i agree with everything you say excepts widening nothing to compare it to as of now a vast achievement gap with the baseline we can't say survive that. >> i felt we can't compare but i don't know. i thought we would be closer that's when - i
4:50 am
thought when i look at it by schools is it like glaring anyways. >> very much we want to make sure to have this presentation families will be getting their results and we will have many questions of us on the board so we want to be sure that people were apprised on the snapshot thank you next item on the agendas item n consent calendar resolution nun together and o votes on the consent calendar was there's a motion and a second under section f roll call. >> ms. fewer mr. haney ms. mendoza-mcdonnell
4:51 am

4:54 am
>> so we'll postpone the votes to the next tints we don't need to withdraw the suspension of rules. >> now i don't think so you're not choosing to exercise on the votes. >> okay. we'll take action at a future meeting we've done item r now boards members delegates for the organization and all other reports first up is commissioner vice president haney report from the committee at a whole on accepcceptepts at a whole on accepccepteptptts 2015. >> we had would this informational update the superintendents annual
