A STANDS FOR ACHIEVEMENT AND WE ARE GOING TO DO THAT TO HONOR OUR NIGHT HAWKS HONOR ROLL STUDENTS FOR THEIR FALL SEMESTER ACHIEVEMENTS. LASTLY NATOMAS MIDDLE -- NATOMAS MIDDLE STAFF ARE HAPPY TO CONNECT WITH THEIR STUDENTS AFTER TWO WEEKS AND ENGAGED IN DEVELOPING THEIR 18-MONTH RECOVERY PLAN. 18-MONTH TIME AS PART OF THEIR PLAN.

>> SUSAN HEREDIA: THANK YOU, TRUSTEE GARCIA.

[X.d. Board Members]

TRUSTEE BAINS? >> JAG BAINS: NO REPORT,

THANK YOU. >> MICAH GRANT: NO REPORT.

>> ERICKA HARDEN: I JUST WANTED TO THANK ALL THE STAFF, TEACHERS AND SCHOOLS THAT PARTICIPATED CELEBRATED MARTIN

LUTHER KING, JR.'S BIRTHDAY. >> SUSAN HEREDIA: ALL RIGHT.

TRUSTEE KAPLAN. >> LISA KAPLAN: I JUST WANT TO -- I HAVE BEEN VOLUNTEERING AT JOEY'S FOOD LOCKER AND YOU MAY NOT SEE THAT ALL OF OUR OWN STAFF ON THEIR OWN TIME IS VOLUNTEERING TO HELP BAG UP FOOD FOR THE COMMUNITY AND WANT TO COMMUNITY MEMBERS AND STAFF TO PUT TOGETHER FOR THE HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE TO RAISE THE $33,000 AND A BIG ASK AND THE COMMUNITY STEPPED UP TO HELP OUR HOMELESS FAMILY.

THANK YOU. AND POSITIVE NEWS YEARLY A FUND A SCHOLARSHIP THAT IS FUNDED AND THE APPLICATION IS COMING OUT. AND I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO READING THE APPLICATION FOR STUDENTS WHO ARE MOST AT RISK TO APPLY FOR A CHROME BOOK SCHOLARSHIP.

I WANT TO THANK ALL THE PARENTS WHO SUBMITTED PUBLIC COMMENTS. WE DO SEE THEM.

WE READ THEM. AND KNOW THAT I WANT OUR SCHOOLS TO REOPEN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AND THE LAW ALLOWS US TO -- THE EYES OF OUR STUDENTS AND FUTURE ARE ON US AND I KNOW THAT NATOMAS WILL CONTINUE TO BE A LEADER THAT OUR STUDENTS DESERVE. WORDS WERE SPOKEN SO ELOQUENTLY TODAY BY A VERY YOUNG POET LAUREATE WHO HAS THE MASTERY OF WORDS. AND I THINK IT BEARS REPEATING THAT I JUST READ A LITTLE PART OF THAT TODAY FOR OUR RECORD, BECAUSE SHE IS THE FUTURE, AND OUR STUDENTS ARE LOOKING AT US AND WHAT SHE SAID. AND PART OF THE POEM SHE READ IS THE "THE HILL WE CLIMB." WE SEE A FORCE THAT WILL SHATTER OUR NATION RATHER THAN SHARE IT, DESTROY OUR COUNTRY IF MEANT DELAYING DEMOCRACY AND THIS EVIDENT NEARLY SUCCEED AND DEMOCRACY CAN BE PERIODICALLY DELAYED.

IT CAN NEVER BE PERMANENTLY DEFEATED.

IN THIS TRUTH AND FAITH WE TRUST WHILE WE HAVE EYES ON THE FUTURE, HISTORY HAS EYES ON US.

AND I THINK AS WE ARE DEALING WITH THIS PANDEMIC, OUR PARENTS AND STUDENTS HAVE THEIR EYES ON US.

AND I KNOW WE WILL CONTINUE TO BE THE LIGHT AND PROGRESSIVELY LEAD TO PUT OUR STUDENTS FI FIRST.

>> SUSAN HEREDIA: THANK YOU. THANK YOU TRUSTEE KAPLAN.

I JUST WANT TO SAY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYBODY.

WELCOME BACK. FOR OUR FIRST BOARD MEETING OF 2021. AND THIS IS GOING TO BE AN AMAZING YEAR. IT IS GOING TO BE A GREAT YEAR. IT IS GOING TO BE A YEAR WHERE I EXPECT THAT NATOMAS AS REFERENCED WITH TRUSTEE

[00:10:06]

KAVANAUGH'S COMMENTS WILL ONCE AGAIN -- TRUSTEE KAPLAN COMMENTS WILL ONCE AGAIN DO GREAT THINGS FOR KIDS.

I LOOK FORWARD TO SERVING IN THIS ROLE AS PRESIDENT THIS YEAR AND WORKING WITH NOT ONLY MY FELLOW TRUSSES BUT ALSO STAFF AS WE MOVE FORWARD AND ADDRESS THE NEEDS OF THE STUDENTS IN THIS DISTRICT. THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT, MOVING ON. PUBLIC COMMENTS.

DO WE HAVE ANY PUBLIC COM COMMENTS?

[X.e. Superintendent's Report]

>> IS THE SUPERINTENDENT GOING TO SAY ANYTHING?

>> SUSAN HEREDIA: OH, THE SUPERINTENDENT, WHERE IS HE? CHRIS EVANS I AM STILL HERE. JUST QUICK THINGS.

DITTO TO TRUSTEE KAPLAN. WE DO READ THE PUBLIC COMMENTS. WE HAVE LOOKED AT THEM.

THERE IS A SURVEY THAT WENT OUT AND ABOUT TODAY.

WE TRIED TO BACK OFF SURVEYS FOR A WHILE BUT WE NEED ENGAGEMENT FROM FAMILIES TO UNDERSTAND THE PERSPECTIVE BETTER. WE GOT ABOUT 365.

PLEASE COMPLETE THE SURVEY. IT WILL HELP US FIGURE OUR 18-MONTH PLAN. IT IS ALREADY VERY INTERESTING SEEING AND BEING ABLE TO BUILD WHAT WE CAN DO FOR OUR KIDS.

WE ARE NOT LEGALLY ALLOWED TO OPEN OUR SCHOOLS RIGHT NOW BECAUSE OF THE CURRENT ENVIRONMENT IN SACRAMENTO COUNTY, EVEN THOUGH WE ARE IN THIS FORM OF QUASI PURPLE WHERE WE ARE NO LONGER BEING ASKED TO STAY HOME, OUR SCHOOLS CAN'T LEGALLY OPEN. TOMORROW -- AND THIS WILL BE NEWS TO THE TRUSTEES AND THIS CAME BACK QUICKLY I HAVE BEEN ASKED TO TESTIFY ON SENATE COMMITTEE ON THE PLAN PROPOSAL GOING FORWARD TO OPEN SCHOOLS AND I WILL SHARE BOTH -- ALL THE EXCELLENT WORK WE HAVE DNE TO GET US FROM MARCH 2020 TO HERE AND WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE TO GET OUR SCHOOLS OPENED AS FAST AS POSSIBLE. NOT ONLY AM I THE SUPERINTENDENT OF THE 16,000 STUDENTS, I AM THE DAD OF A SENIOR WHO HAS ABSOLUTELY MISSED OUT ON A VARIETY OF ACTIVITIES AND I HAVE A WORRY AND CONCERN FOR HIM AS I DO THE OTHER 16,000. WE ARE WORKING VERY HARD WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THINGS THAT ARE OUT OF OUR CONTROL.

WELL, WE COULD OPEN VERY QUICKLY.

VERY QUICKLY BECAUSE OF GOOD PLANNING BY THE STAFF.

WE HAVE THE PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT.

WE CHANGED THE FILTRATION, HEPA FILTER AND CLASSROOM AND WORK SPACES. WE HAVE TAKEN THE ACTION NECESSARY AND THE NEW GUIDANCE THAT IS CALLED THE CONSOLIDATED GUIDANCE THAT TAKES US K-6 AND DOESN'T INCLUDE 7-12. SO WE ARE DOING ALL WE CAN TO GET US BACK SAFELY IN THE SCHOOLS.

AND EVEN SO FAR AS LOBBIES AND SPEAKING AT THE CAPITOL TO SHARE WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE IN BEING ALLOWED TO RETURN TO SCHOOL AS SAFELY AS POSSIBLE.

WANT THE PUBLIC TO KNOW THAT. IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE E-MAIL OR COMMUNICATION THAT I SENT OUT YESTERDAY.

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME. IT EXPLAINS IN GREATER DETAIL WHAT WE ARE DOING, WHERE WE ARE, WHAT THE STATUS IS, AND I WILL ASK THAT EVERY PARENT READ IT.

IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, E-MAIL CONSTITUENT AND CUSTOMER SERVICE. IF YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND SOMETHING IN THE LETTER, WE WILL GET BACK TO YOU AND TRY TO EXPLAIN BETTER BUT RIGHT NOW WE CANNOT OPEN OUR SCH

SCHOOLS. >> SUSAN HEREDIA: THANK YOU.

[XI. PUBLIC COMMENTS]

ALL RIGHT. NOW I AM GOING TO ASK FOR, AGAIN, PUBLIC COMMENT. DID WE RECEIVE ANY PUBLIC COMMENTS THAT ARE NOT ON THE AGENDA?

>> WE DID. SOME MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC WERE ENCOURAGED TO SUBMIT PUBLIC COMMENTS VIA E COMMENT AT ECOMMENT@NATOMAS.ORG. WE RECEIVED PUBLIC COMMENTS FOR THE FOLLOWING INDIVIDUALS. NATOMAS BLACK PARENTS UNITED DAWN AND PATTY, KING PHOENIX, SIN THEE THAT HEXTEL, BECK CA CLEMENT, ANA CRAN Z Y, GREG FISHER, ELIZABETH CACAW, RACHEL DAVIS. THESE PUBLIC COMMENTS WERE FORWARDED TO THE ENTIRE BOARD OF TRUSTEES AND APPROPRIATE STAFF FOR THEIR CONSIDERATIONS AND THE SPECIFICS OF THE COMMENTS WILL BE RECORDED IN THE OFFICIAL BOARD MEETING

MINUTES. >> SUSAN HEREDIA: AGAIN, THANK YOU. WE DO APPRECIATE THE COMMUNITIES FROM THE PUBLIC AND I THINK THIS IS PROBABLY THE -- I THINK THIS IS PROBABLY THE FIRST TIME THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED THIS MANY COMMENTS.

SO AGAIN, THANK YOU. MOVING CONTINUE TO

[XII.a. Constituent and Customer Services (CCS) Update]

PRESENTATIONS THIS EVENING. THIS IS THE EXCITING PART H

[00:15:03]

HERE. SO OUR FIRST PRESENTATION IS DIRECTOR HEIDI LATTUADA WILL BE JOINING US.

THERE SHE IS. SHE IS ALREADY ON ZOOM.

AND SO SHE IS FROM CONSTITUENT AND CUSTOMER SERVICES AND THIS IS THE UPDATE. SO, WELCOME.

I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU TONIGHT.

>> HEIDI LATTUADA: GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? >> SUSAN HEREDIA: YES.

>> HEIDI LATTUADA: GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE.

GOOD EVENING PRESIDENT HER HEREDIA, TRUSTEES.

FIRST, HAPPY NEW YEAR, AND I WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME TRUSTEE HARDEN TO THE DAIS. WELCOME, TRUSTEE HARDEN.

THIS IS THE CONSTITUENT AND CUSTOMER SERVICES UPDATE FOR THE FIRST HALF OF THE 2021 ACADEMIC SCHOOL YEAR.

WE PRESENT SINCE 2013, WE HAVE BEEN REPORTING TO THE BOARD TWICE A YEAR, ONCE IN A M MIDYEAR UPDATE AND ONCE AT THE END. YEAR.

WE PRESENT TWICE A YEAR TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA WHAT CONSTITUENT CUSTOMER SERVICE IS UP TO.

WE WILL GO WITH THE SLIDES. OUR VISION AND CORE BELIEFS AND OUR GOALS AND CUSTOMER SERVICE IS ON GOAL 3 ENGAGING PARENTS AND FAMILIES OF STUDENTS SUCCESS IN SCHOOL.

THE OBJECTIONS OF TONIGHT'S PRESENTATION ARE SIMILAR TO THE PAST WITH THE FIRST TWO BEING OUR HISTORICAL COMPARISONS OF DATA FOR THE FIRST HALF OF THE YEAR AND FOR THE LOOKS OF HISTORICAL DATA IN THE PAST, AND OUR NEW ONES WHICH ARE LOOKING AT THE CALENDAR COMPARISON OF THE 2019-2020 CALENDAR YEARS AND WHAT IMPACT COVID HAS HAD ON US AND THE DIFFERENT KIND OF ROLES WE ARE PLACED IN.

WE ARE ALSO CELEBRATING TWO GREAT THINGS TONIGHT, CELEBRATING A SIGNIFICANT DECREASE IN GENERAL COMPLAINTS AND THE HIGHEST SAME-DAY CLOSURE RATE WE HAVE EVER REPORTED TO THE BOARD. EVEN IN THESE TIMES WE ARE PROUD OF THOSE TWO ACCOMPLISHMENTS.

THE CURRENT ROLE OF CCS CONTINUES TO MORE OF A LITTLE BIT. MODIFIED SUPPORT TO M&A AND COVID CLINIC THAT CONTINUES AND EXPANDS IN DIFFERENT WAYS.

WE HAVE BEEN HIGHLY INVOLVED WITH THE I. T. PHONE BANK IN THE FIRST THREE WEEKS OF SCHOOL.

WE HELP WITH VARIOUS DEPARTMENTS, WITH TRANSITIONAL OPENING, STARTER SCHOOLS, F FAQS, SAFETY PROCEDURES, GUIDELINES AND SITE PLANS AND WE HAD TO EXPAND OUR SUPPORT FOR VOICE NATION TO INCREASE THE CONTACTS COMING OUR WAY.

>> I'LL SAY THIS, HEIDI, I DON'T KNOW IF, YES, YOU HAVE TO, BUT ACTUALLY AN IDEA THAT YOU CAME UP WITH AFTER YOU BROUGHT TO MY OFFICE THAT THE CALLS WERE INCREASING QUITE A BIT. YOU FOUND A SOLUTION TO A COVID PROBLEM. AND YOU AND MIRIAM.

AND I THINK THE BOARD SHOULD KNOW THAT.

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT THEY SAW THE INCREASE.

THEY CAME UP WITH A SOLUTION. AND YOU ARE GOING TO SEE WHAT IT HAS DONE. IT HAS BEEN PRETTY DANG

EFFECTIVE. >> HEIDI LATTUADA: THANK YOU FOR THAT. GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, CHRISTINA. SO THIS IS OUR YEAR-TO-YEAR COMPARISON FOR THE PERIOD OF TIME JULY TO SEPTEMBER AND THE FIRST SEMESTER MORE THAN A 300% INCREASE IN THIS COVID PERIOD OF TIME. WE SAW SIMILAR INCREASE WHEN WE PRESENTED TO YOU IN AUGUST, BUT WE ARE JUST CONTINUING TO SEE THE INCREASE. SO WE ARE GOING TO LOOK KIND OF WHERE THAT INCREASE COMES FROM, BUT BEFORE WE DO THAT, I REALLY WANT TO LOOK AT THIS SLIDE.

THIS IS A CALENDAR YEAR COMPARISON, JANUARY TO DECEMBER. THE BLUE LINE SHOWING THE 2019 CALENDAR YEAR AND THE GREEN LINE SHOWING THE 2020 CALENDAR YEAR WITH COVID BEING EFFECTIVE TEN MONTHS OF THE CALENDAR YEAR. WE THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO SEE A SIDE BY SIDE AP APPLES-TO-APPLES COMPARISON WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE. YOU CAN SEE JANUARY AND FEBRUARY WE WERE JUGGING ALONG PRETTY MUCH THE SAME.

AND THEN MARCH HIT. WE REVIEWED THAT PORTION OF THE TIMELINE IN AUGUST WHEN I PRESENTED.

THE NEW STUFF IS FROM JULY 1 FORWARD AND WE SAW THAT SPIKE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SUMMER. PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE FALL. SCHOOLS ARE OPEN.

NOT GOING TO OPEN AND ALL OF THAT.

ONCE SCHOOLS GOT IN SESSION, THERE IN SEPTEMBER, THINGS STARTED TO FLATTEN OUT AGAIN, BUT AGAIN AT THAT VERY HIGHER RATE AND HIGHER VOLUME OF CALLS.

SO WE HAVE ALWAYS LOOKED AT OUR CONTACTS IN SEVEN CATEGORIES. THE FIRST ONE BEING OUR REQUEST FOR INFORMATION AND OUR PUBLIC RECORDS ACT REQ

[00:20:01]

REQUEST. THIS IS THE COMPARISON OVER THE SIX YEARS. THIS USED TO ALL BE SHOWN IN ONE SLIDE. IT IS TOO MUCH INFORMATION NOW SO YOU WILL SEE IT IN SEVEN DIFFERENT SLIDES.

WE SEE A HUGE INCREASE OF INFORMATION AND WE WILL DIVE INTO THAT IN JUST THE NEXT COUPLE OF MINUTES.

THE NEXT CATEGORY IS OUR GENERAL COMPLAINTS, AND YOU CAN SEE THAT DECREASE THAT ARE JUST -- THIS IS GREAT WORK FROM THE BOARD. GREAT WORK -- WE GET TO BE THE LUCKY ONES TO REPORT IT TO YOU AND A GREAT NUMBER.

ABOUT 45. CONTACTS FOR GENERAL COMPLAINTS REPRESENT LESS THAN 1% OF OUR TOTAL CONTACTS OF THE YEAR. THE 345 IN THE SAME TIME PERIOD LAST YEAR WAS 35% OF OUR TOTAL CALL VOLUME.

NEXT AREA WE REPORT IS IN OUR PERSONNEL COMPLAINTS, WAY D DOWN. OUR UNIFORM AND FORMAL COMPLAINTS. WE HAVE HAD NONE.

SO IN THE COMPLAINT DEPARTMENT, WE ARE WAY DOWN.

WE HAVE A LOT OF CONTACTS, BUT PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON. THEIR REQUEST FOR INFORMATION, HOW THEY GET A COVID TEST, THINGS LIKE THAT.

NUSD GENERATED. AN AREA WHERE WE HAVE AN EFFORT TO COLLECT DATA WHEN WE ARE DRIVING THE PUBLIC TO CCS.

THE ONE YOU SEE HERE IS WHEN WE ARE ASKING FOR PARENT AND COMMUNITY INPUT. WE WILL SEE A SPIKE IN THAT IN AUGUST AT LEAST A LITTLE BIT BECAUSE DRIVING THE SAME INPUT TO CCS REGARDING THE PARENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE.

YOU WILL SEE SOME NUMBERS SHOWING THERE IN THE NEXT PRESENTATION. THE NEXT AREA IS THE OTHER AREA, AND THE NEXT ONE IS -- WE LIKE TO GIVE PRAISES.

WE DON'T GET VERY MANY, BUT WE HAVE SEVEN.

THOSE WERE ACROSS THE DISTRICT AND NOT FOR OUR DEPARTMENT.

GO AHEAD, CHRISTNA. THIS DIVES INTO THE REQUEST FOR INFORMATION. 4900 REQUESTS FOR INFORMATION THIS TIME PERIOD. 1500 OF THEM PUBLIC RECORDS REQUEST. THE MAJORITY A MUCH HIGHER PERCENTAGE. THIS COMMUNITY WHICH IS ALL COVID TESTING QUESTIONS. HOW I DO GET A TEST? WHERE DO I GET A TEST? WHAT KIND OF TEST ARE YOU DOING? HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR A TEST? 42% OF TEST FOR INFORMATION IS REGARDING COVID TESTING AND NEXT BIG -- THE CHIEF ACADEMIC OFFICER.

THEIR OFFICE REGARDING PRIMARILY WE WILL SEE ON THE NEXT SLIDE, INFORMATION ABOUT STAR SCHOOLS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. INFORMATION AND I. T. DATA -- NOT THE MAJORITY BUT A THIRD OF THOSE CALLS HOW TO GET A CHROME BOOK AND HOT SPOTS AND INTERNET ESSENTIALS.

OUR SPECIFIC CATEGORY OVER 500.

THEY GO BACK TO THE SCHOOL SITE.

I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT MY K KID'S SCHEDULE.

I HAVE A CALLING MY KIDS SICK TO SCHOOL.

DISTRICT ACADEMICS. THIS IS DISTRICT LEVEL ACADEMICS WITH 123 OF THOSE BEING ABOUT THE ACT TEM I CAN SURVEY. THE NEXT CHUNK BACK TO SCHOOL.

DIGITAL BACKPACK. HYBRID LEARNING AND INDEPENDENT STUDY AND THE REMAINDER IS A MIXED BAG.

AND THE OTHER CALLS KIND OF FALL IN THOSE OTHER CATE CATEGORIES. SO LIKE I WAS SAYING, WE REALLY HAD TO TAKE A LOOK AT HOW WE USE -- HOW ARE WE GOING TO GET HELP. WE KNEW IN MARCH WE COULDN'T MANAGE THE VOLUME OF CALLS. WE REALLY KNEW OVER THE SUMMER WE WOULD GET BURIED. 1500 CALLS IN ONE MONTH.

WE COULDN'T DO IT. VOICE NATION BEFORE COVID HAD AFTERHOUR SUPPORT TO CCS ANSWERING OUR PHONES WHEN WE DID NOT. SINCE MARCH WE ARRANGED FOR THEM TO TAKE THE CALL. WE WANT A CALL TAKEN BY A LIFE PERSON. WE DON'T WANT PEOPLE TO LEAVE A VOICE MAIL AND GET A CALL 24.

24 HOURS A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK.

A LIVE PERSON ANSWERS THOSE CALLS.

AND VOICE NATION AT THE BEGINNING WAS SENDING US E-MAILS ABOUT ALL OF THOSE THINGS.

WE REALIZED WE COULD PROVIDE VOICE NATION WITH INFORMATION SO NOT ALL OF THE CALLS COME TO US.

THEY ANSWERED OVER 8300 CARS, 4099 CAME IN THE FORM OF AN E-MAIL TO DO FOLLOW-UP. THE OTHERS THEY WERE ABLE TO PROVIDE BASIC INFORMATION BASED ON THE SCRIPTS WE HAVE GIVEN THEM OR DEAD AIR CALLS AND HANGING UP.

THIS IS A LIFE EXAMPLE HOW WE UTILIZED THIS THIRD PARTY VENDER TO MAKE IT SURE THE COMMUNITY HAS A HIGH, HIGH LEVEL OF CUSTOMER SERVICE THAT WE ARE WANTING TO DO AND ALSO MAKE OUR TURN-AROUND TIME MANAGEABLE.

[00:25:04]

WE DON'T WANT PEOPLE TO WAIT TWO OR THREE DAYS TO GET TO THEIR CALL. AND STARTING JANUARY 4, WHICH WAS REALLY EXCITING, THEY ARE ABLE TO PROVIDE ASSISTANCE IN SPANISH WITH NO ADDITIONAL COST TO THE DISTRICT.

WE NEVER TALK ABOUT COST OF VOICE NATION BEFORE.

FOR THE RECORD WE WERE PAYING $329 A MONTH PRECOVID FOR 350 MINUTES. THAT IS WHAT WE WERE PAYING.

WE HAD TO ADJUST OUR BUNDLES AND WATCH OUR BUNDLES OF MINUTES WEEKLY TO MAKE SURE WE ARE IN THE RIGHT BUNDLE AND SO FAR SINCE JULY 1, THAT IS THE COST OF THE DISTRICT FOR THIS SERVICE $26407. WE EXPECTED IT TO BE MUCH LIKE THAT THE SECOND HALF OF THE SCHOOL YEAR.

WE ADJUST IT AS WE CAN BASED ON BUNDLED, BUT IT IS GOING TO BE ABOUT THAT AGAIN FOR SECOND SEMESTER.

AND WE ARE VERY EXCITED THEY ARE HELPING US WITH OUR SPANISH COMMUNITY. THE OTHER THIRD PARTY VENDOR WE HAVE EXPANDED THE USE OF IS LANGUAGE LINK.

AS A REMINDER LANGUAGE LINK PROVIDES A NATIVE INTERPRETATION IN MORE THAN 2 240 LOS ANGELES AND 24 HOURS A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK. AND IN THIS TIME PERIOD WE UTILIZE THEM 398 TIMES WITH 32 LANGUAGES.

THE BULLETS SHOW YOU WHAT WE HAVE BEEN USING THEM FOR AND AMAZING AND HELPFUL IN A LOT OF AREAS AND WITH OUR COMMUNITY AS IT IS. I DON'T KNOW HOW WE WILL SERVE OUR FAMILIES WITH OUR LANGUAGE LINKS.

THE NEXT SLIDE IS THE FIRST TIME WE WILL SHOW YOU EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE USING FOR AND WHAT LANGUAGES.

HIGHEST IN SPANISH AND THEN THOSE 22 LANGUAGES ARE THE LANGUAGES WE ARE SERVING. CHRISTINA.

LIKE I SAID, WE HAD A SIGNIFICANT DROP IN GENERAL COMPLAINTS. WE ARE EXCITED THAT THEY HAVE DONE AND THE BOARD HAS DONE TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

AND THE NEXT SLIDE, THERE IS A REMINDER OF SOME OF THE ACTION THAT'S THE BOARD AND STAFF TOOK TO KEEP.

I REALLY BELIEVE THESE ARE THE ACTIONS IN THE FIRST PART OF -- OF 2020 THAT REALLY BROUGHT THAT NUMBER DOWN.

AND WE JUST CONTINUED WITH THE LIST, AND THE NEW LIST HAS ANOTHER -- I DON'T KNOW, 12 OR 15 ITEMS ON IT THAT STOP AND ACTIONS THAT HAVE TAKEN. CHRISTINA, GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE. TO ANSWER COMMUNITY QUESTIONS SO IT DOESN'T RAISE THAT. THAT FRUSTRATION IN MULTIPLE AREAS. SURE STILL FRUSTRATION, BUT I THINK THAT THE WORK THAT THE BOARD AND STAFF HAS DONE HAS REALLY HELPED TO KEEP THOSE GENERAL COMPLAINTS WAY DOWN TO LESS THAN 1%. NEXT CHRISTINA.

AD THESE ARE OUR CLOSURE RATES.

WE HAVE BEEN TRACKING CLOSURE RATES SINCE THE '17-'18 SCHOOL YEAR AND I AM REALLY HAPPY TO REPORT THE HIGHEST SAME-DAY CLOSURE RATES. IN AUGUST, 83% SAME-DAY CLOSURE RATE AND INCREASE IN CALLS, BUT 87% SAME-DAY CLOSURE RATE. THIS IS CALENDAR DAYS WITH AN OUTRAGEOUS 300 INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF CALLS.

WITH THE PARTNERSHIP OF VOICE NATION, WE ARE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE REAL HIGH LEVEL OF CUSTOMER SERVICE.

WE ARE STILL AVAILABLE ON EVERY WEB PAGE.

STILL AVAILABLE AT THE BOTTOM OF COMMUNICATION.

WE ARE HERE 24-7 NOW. WE NEVER SAID THAT BEFORE AND AN HONOR TO SERVE NATOMAS UNITED IN CAPACITY.

THIS IS FUN. ANY QUESTIONS?

>> SUSAN HEREDIA: QUESTIONS OF THE BOARD?

>> I WANT TO SAY, CONGRATS, HEIDI AND YOUR TEAM AND CONSTANTLY AS WE LOOK AT -- SOMETIMES IT IS CULTURE, BUT YOU FEELING EMPOWERED AND YOUR STAFF BEING EMPOWERED OUTSIDE OF THE BOX SO CCS CAN CONTINUE TO BE RESPONSIVE AND ANSWER IN THIS TIME OF PANDEMIC KNOWING THINGS IS SO IMPORTANT.

SO TRULY PASS ALONG MY KUDOS AND CONGRATS FOR ALL THE HARD WORK AND THINKING OUTSIDE OF THE BOX TO CONTINUE TO SERVE

OUR FAMILIES. >> THANK YOU, MIRIAM IS WATCHING. GREAT WORK.

>> LIKE TRUSTEE KAPLAN SAID, I AM LOVING VOICE NATION.

HUGE TO GET A LIVE PERSON IN TODAY'S SOCIETY WITH EVERYTHING GOING ON. OUR FAMILIES DESERVE TO GET A PERSON. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK. .> MICAH

>> SOMETHING THAT DID NOT GO UNNOTICED TO ME THAT EVO WAS INCLUDED ON THE LIST AND ONE CONTACT, BUT THAT SHOWS HOW

[00:30:02]

FAR OUR DISTRICT IS WILLING TO GO TO REACH OUT TO NEW PEOPLE.

KUDOS. REALLY COOL.

>> HEIDI LATTUADA: THANK YOU, ALL.

>> SUSAN HEREDIA: THANK YOU, APPRECIATE IT.

>> HEIDI LATTUADA: THANK YOU. >> SUSAN HEREDIA: NOW MOVING

[XII.b. Taking Stock - Where We Are and Where We Want To Go]

ON TO OUR NEXT PRESENTATION TAKING STOCK, WHERE WE ARE AND WHERE WE WANT TO GO. AND I AM NOW TURNING IT OVER

TO -- >> I WILL START US OFF DR.

HEREDIA. TONIGHT WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO -- AS A COLLECTIVE GROUP REALLY TALK ABOUT WHO WE ARE AS NATOMAS UNIFIED. IF YOU WANT TO MOVE FORWARD, CHRISTINA PLEASE. REALLY FOCUSED ON OUR VISION.

I THINK AS WE TELL YOU SOME STORIES TONIGHT WE WILL SEE THE PATH OF HOW THIS VISION IS COMING TO LIFE THROUGH THE INTENSIONAL EFFORTS AND INVESTMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN MOVE OUR STORIES. WE WANT TO TAKE THE TIME TO SHOW MAJOR AREAS OF WORK. THIS IS CROSS DEPARTMENTAL AND TO WARN YOU GUYS IN ADVANCE WILL BE HEARING FROM SEVERAL DIFFERENT VOICES IN THIS PRESENTATION TONIGHT.

WE WILL BE TRADING OFF AS WE MOVE THROUGH DIFFERENT SEC SECTIONS TO TALK ABOUT THE INVESTMENTS OF STUDENTS, FAMILY AND STAFF AND THE FUTURE INVESTMENTS THAT ARE SUSTAINED TO FURTHER DEVELOP SUPPORTS THAT ARE CURRENTLY IN PLACE. SO OBVIOUSLY, THERE IS SOME THINGS THAT WE TALK ABOUT TONIGHT THAT ARE IN DIRECT RESPONSE TO THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC AND RESOURCES AND SUPPORT THAT'S WE PROVIDED FOR OUR FAMILY -- FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES. WE ALSO RECOGNIZE THAT MOVING FORWARD, THERE WILL BE LIMITED RESOURCES, AND WE CAN DO ANYTHING, BUT WE CAN'T DO EVERYTHING THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO. THESE MAJOR AREAS OF WORK THAT WE ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT REALLY REPRESENT WHO WE ARE AS NATOMAS UNIFIED TODAY AND HOW WE SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS AND LOOKING FORWARD TO SHARE THAT INFORMATION WITH YOU TONIGHT.

AGAIN AS A REMINDER YOU WILL HEAR US TALK ABOUT IT AGAIN, WE CAN DO ANYTHING BUT CAN'T DO EVERYTHING.

TO ROUND US IN THE TYPE OF CONVERSATION WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TONIGHT, WE ARE G GOING TO KIND OF REFLECT ON THE PAST AND USE AS A MARKER KIND OF TEN YEARS AGO IN MOST INSTANCES AND REALLY TALK ABOUT AS WE TRAVELED THIS PATH, WE HAVE BECOME A DIFFERENT DISTRICT AND WE ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THESE AREAS OF WORK THAT YOU SEE IN THE BARS ON THE RIGHT-HAND SIDE.

WHY WE FOCUS ON THOSE AREAS OF WORK, REFLECT ON THE BACK, WHERE WE ARE NOW AND THE PATH FORWARD.

AND YOU CAN SEE SOME THINGS ARE COLOR-CODED TO HELP SEPARATE WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT.

BEFORE WE MOVE ON TO THE FIRST SECTION, WHAT I AM GOING TO EXPLAIN TO YOU A COVER SHEET THAT HIGHLIGHTS WHICH OF THE AREAS WE ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT.

IF YOU WANT TO MOVE TO THAT, CHRISTINA.

SUPPORTING STUDENT LEARNING. WE ARE GOING TO TALK A LITTLE BIT FIRST. WE DON'T WANT TO PUT A LOT OF WORDS ON SLIDES WHILE WE ARE TALKING BECAUSE WE WANT TO SHARE THE STORY AND PUBLIC WHO WILL BE VIEWING THE MEETING AFTER, WE WILL BE PRESENTING THE NARRATIVE IN THE SLIDES SO THEY CAN REVIEW. I BELIEVE THAT EVERYBODY HAS A COPY. AS WE GET IN SUPPORTS STUDENT LEARNING, OUR FIRST AREA. WE WILL CALL OUT WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO. WE HAVE OPTIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR STUDENTS TO PARTICIPATE IN MANY AREAS AND NOT JUST ABOUT ACADEMICS AND NOT JUST K-12.

WE GO FROM PRESCHOOL TO ADULT ED AND BELIEVE ON OUR STU STUDENTS' ABILITY TO SUCCEED AND CALL READINESS.

AND SO THE FIRST THING THAT I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU IS WHERE WE WERE TEN YEARS AGO AS A DISTRICT WITH REGARDS TO SUPPORTING STUDENT LEARNING. SO TEN YEARS AGO, SCHOOLS WERE LARGELY MANAGING WHAT AND HOW CURRICULUM WAS DELIVERED TO STUDENTS IN CLASSROOM. WHEN I SAY CURRICULUM, THE TEXT BOOKS, THE INSTRUCTION THAT WAS HAPPENING AND BECAUSE OF THAT AUTONOMY AMONG SITES, INCONSISTENT ACROSS THE DISTRICT. WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO SEE A THIRD-GRADER LEARNING IN ONE SCHOOL VERSUS ANOTHER AND EVEN BETWEEN CLASSROOMS IN ONE SCHOOL.

THE FOCUS WAS PREPARING STUDENTS ON THINGS LIKE STATE TESTING AND MAKING SURE STUDENTS WALKED ACROSS THE GRADUATION STAGE. AT THAT TIME WE DIDN'T HAVE A SYSTEM OF ASSESSMENTS. WE DIDN'T HAVE AN INTEREST DISTRICT DATA SYSTEM THAT WOULD ALLOW US TO MONITOR

[00:35:02]

STUDENT PROGRESS AND INFORMATION WE WOULD BE GET AND REPORTED AFTER THE FACT IN MOST CASES.

STUDENTS WERE PLACED IN CO COURSES MANY TIMES BASED ON THE AVAILABILITY OF STAFF AND MAYBE CERTAIN LABELS THAT STUDENTS HAD. AND THERE WASN'T THAT INTENSE FOCUS ON ACHIEVING STATUS FOR STUDENTS AND OTHER MEASURES OF COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS. A FEW CTE PROGRAMS AND DIDN'T HAVE FULL-DAY KINDERGARTEN AND SPECIAL ED STUDENTS SPENT THE DAY IN SPECIAL EDUCATION CLASSROOMS. AT THAT POINT FAMILIES WERE LEAVING NATOMAS WITH THE LACK OF CHOICES AND CAREER PREPARATION FOR THEIR STU STUDENTS. LET'S TAKE A LOOK NOW AS WE TALK ABOUT THE PRESENT. SO WE NOW HAVE A CLEAR FOCUS ON OUR COLLEGE AND CAREER ACCESS AND READINESS WHICH BEGAN WITH THE THEORY OF ACTION THAT YOU AS A BOARD APPROVED IN 2014. WE STARTED IMPLEMENTING THINGS LIKE AN IN DISTRICT DATA WAREHOUSE ALLOW STAFF IN ANY GIVEN DAY TO MONITOR IN PROGRESS DATA AND HISTORICAL DATA. A SYSTEM OF ASSESSMENTS AND SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENT IN EXAMS SUCH AS ADVANCE PLACEMENT, INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE, THE PSA T.

AND LITERACY AND ALL OF THESE DIFFERENT STUDENTS.

FAMILIES HAVE ACCESS TO COOL. AND NINE CTE PROGRAMS THAT SERVE STUDENTS AT SECONDARY SCHOOLS.

IN FACT ONE OF THOSE SERVE MULTIPLE SCHOOLS.

ADVANCEMENT VIA INDIVIDUAL DETERMINATION HAS REACHED DOWN TO TWO OF OUR ELEMENTARY ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS AS WELL AS THE HIGH SCHOOL. WE HAVE IB AT FIVE ELEMENTARY AND K-8. MIDDLE SCHOOLS, HIGH SCHOOLS.

CAPSTONE AND PRE-K PROGRAM. WE HAVE GATE.

WE HAVE A CLEAR TEXTBOOK ADOPTION PROCESS WHAT WE DO AS A DISTRICT AND THE EXPECTATION OF ALIGNMENT OF WHAT STUDENTS ARE LEARNING. MOST OF OUR SPECIAL EDUCATION STUDENTS SPEND THEIR DAY IN THE GENERAL EDUCATION CLASSROOM. PLCS.

UPDATED ENGLISH LEARNER PLAN THAT YOU APPROVED.

A PLAN FOR DUAL EMERGENT SCHOOL AND GARAGE RATION RATES AND PLANNING WITH OUR STUDENTS GO EARLIER AND EARLIER IN THEIR ACADEMIC CAREERS. WE FOCUS ON INVESTING IN THE RIGHT STAFFING POSITIONS TO SUPPORT THE WORK WE NEED TO DO TO GIVE STUDENTS COLLEGE AND CAREER READY AND SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENT FROM THE WARD FOR THE PROGRAM AND STRUCTURE THAT'S HELP WITH THIS. OUR ENROLLMENT HAS BEEN INCREASING THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS AND CONTINUE TO FOCUS PROVIDING OPTIONS FOR OUR STUDENTS.

IN LIGHT OF THE PANDEMIC, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED FORCED US SOME OF THE IDEAS LIKE A PRE-K ACADEMY AND TO MEET OUR STUDENTS' NEEDS WHERE THEY ARE AT.

OUR SUPERINTENDENT MENTIONED EARLIER 18-MONTH PLAN FOR STUDENTS WITH LEARNING DISRUPTED DURING THIS PAN PANDEMIC. WE WILL FOCUS ON TWO THINGS AS WE TALK ABOUT THE PATH FORWARD AND CERTAINLY A LOT OF THINGS THAT ARE BEING INVESTED IN TO SUPPORT FAMILY AND STUDENTS, BUT MOVING FORWARD, FOCUSING ON THE K-9 VIRTUAL ACADEMY IS GOING TO INVOLVE A SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENT.

A WAY TO PROVIDE PARENTS AND STUDENTS WITH ANOTHER EDUCATIONAL OPTION AND OPPORTUNITY IN NUSD.

AND TO LAUNCH THAT ACADEMY. AND WE ARE ANTICIPATING AND STUDENTS WILL HAVE THE FULL CONTINUUM OF REPORTS AND EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES. WHILE IT IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM, THERE WILL BE AN OPPORTUNITY HAVE IN PERSON SUPPORTS AS WELL. IN ADDITION, WE HAVE THIS 18-MONTH PLAN TO ADDRESS A LEARNING DISRUPTION, AND THAT IS GOING TO BE A SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENT.

WE ARE USING MULTIPLE MEASURES FOR STUDENTS.

WE ARE LOOKING AT ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT, SOCIAL EMOTIONAL, ATTENDANCE CRITERIA TO IDENTIFY THOSE STUDENTS STRUGGLING THROUGH DISTANCE LEARNING.

OUR SITES WILL FOCUS ON THESE STUDENTS AND POTENTIALLY MORE TO LOCATE STUDENTS WITH RESOURCES WHO NEED THAT SIGNIFICANT SUPPORT. WE WILL OFFER A VARIETY OF RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS. SOME OF THEM WILL BE DISTRICT WIDE AS WE LOOK TO IMPROVE OUR VIRTUAL AND TUTORING WELLNESS CENTER. DISTRICT-WIDE OFFERING AND FROM A SITE PERSPECTIVE. BECAUSE EACH OF THE SITES, THEY KNOW THEIR STUDENTS. THEY KNOW THEIR CULTURE.

[00:40:01]

THEY KNOW THE RESOURCES THEY HAVE AVAILABLE TO SUPPORT STUDENTS WITH LEARNING DISRUPTION.

THIS PLAN AS I MENTIONED IS 18 MONTHS.

AND WE ARE LOOKING AT THREE DIFFERENT PHASES.

YOU MAY ASK WHY 18 MONTHS. I THINK THE REALITY IS IT IS REALLY UNREALISTIC TO THINK THAT IN THE NEXT THREE, SIX OR EVEN 12 MONTHS, WE WILL BE ABLE TO ADDRESS THE NEEDS THAT HAVE COME IN THE LAST 11 MONTHS.

ONE OF THE THINGS, TOO, IS WE RECOGNIZE THAT BETWEEN OUR FAMILIES AND STAFF, THE ABILITY THAT THEY MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE TO COMMIT THE ADDITIONAL TIME FOR PROVIDING AND RECEIVING THE SUPPORTS, THAT IS A REAL -- THAT IS A REALITY THAT WE HAVE TO CONTEND WITH, AND WE RECOGNIZE THIS IS NOT A SPRINT. THAT IS ANOTHER REASON FOR A LONGER TERM OVER THE NEXT 18 OR SO MONTHS.

SO WE WILL BE COMING BACK. AND WE WILL SHARE WITH EACH OF THESE AREAS. WE WILL BE COMING BACK WITH MORE SPECIFIC DETAILS REGARDING THE BUDGETS REQUIRED FOR THINGS LIKE THE VIRTUAL ACADEMY IN THE 18-MONTH PLAN.

THIS IS REALLY THE STARTING OFF POINT TO HELP YOU SEE WHO WE ARE WITH SUPPORTING STUDENTS AND WHO WE THINK WE REALLY NEED TO START TALKING ABOUT INVESTMENTS IN THE FUTURE. SO I AM GOING TO HAND IT OFF

TO CAROL SWANSON. >> HELLO, EVERYBODY.

CHRISTINA, YOU CAN MOVE IT FORWARD IN THE POWERPOINT.

KEEP GOING. KEEP GOING.

I WILL TELL YOU WHEN TO STOP. RIGHT THERE.

SO I AM GOING TO TALK ABOUT SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL SUPPORT FOR OUR STUDENTS. GOAL FOUR HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE DRIVING FORCE BEHIND OUR WORK IN SOCIAL EMOTIONAL SERVICES.

OUR FOCUS HAS BEEN AND FINANCE TO PROVIDE A SAFE AND WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT WHERE STUDENTS ATTEND AND ARE CONNECTED TO THEIR SCHOOLS. CHRISTINA, YOU CAN MOVE FORWARD. TO TALK ABOUT THE PAST, TEN YEARS AGO NATOMAS HAD NINE SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS.

A PART-TIME SOCIAL WORKER WHO FOCUSED ON SCHOOL READINESS.

MISSION POSSIBLE WAS HERE AND PROVIDED INTERNS AT SCHOOL SITES AND TWO BEHAVIOR STAFF. ALL STUDENTS WHO REQUIRED MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT, ASSUMING THEY WERE ON SPECIAL EDUCATION AND HAD THE SUPPORT ON THEIR IEP AND SPECIAL EDUCATION PLAN. THEY RECEIVED THEIR REPORT FROM COUNTY MENTAL HEALTH. 2011, THE MODEL FOR SC SCHOOL-BASED MENTAL HEALTH CHANGED AND WE USE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO START STUDENT SERVICES AND SUPPORT -- THAT IS MY DEPARTMENT -- AND THE BOARD CREATED BOARD DELIVERABLES THAT FOCUSED ON REFERRALS, SERVICES TO STUDENTS AND KINDERGARTEN THROUGH 12TH GRADE SO SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL CONTINUUM. OVER TIME WE LAUNCHED RESTORATIVE JUSTICE, POSITIVE INTERVENTION SUPPORT OR PPIS.

WE PLACED A FULL-TIME PSYCHOLOGIST AT EVERY SCHOOL SITE ADDED TO OUR BEHAVIOR TEAM.

BEEFED UP OUR REFERRAL AND FORMED OUR CRISIS RESPONSE TEAM. WE CREATED WHAT IS SIX EMOTIONAL SOCIAL SUPPORT CLASSROOMS. MOST RECENTLY TO EXPAND OUR REFERRAL SYSTEM AND OUTREACH PARTNERED WITH GO GUARDIAN AND NEW DAWN.

WORKING WITH THEM WE HAVE VETTED 484 REFERRALS INCLUDING 50 POTENTIALLY LIFE-SAVING INTERVENTIONS.

MOST IMPORTANTLY IN NATOMAS, A STUDENT NO LONGER NEEDS TO BE IN SPECIAL EDUCATION TO GET MENTAL HEALTH REPORT.

WE SERVE EVERYONE. WE WENT FROM NOT SERVING STUDENTS DIRECTLY TO SERVING 1200 STUDENTS A YEAR A MAJORITY OF WHICH IS UNDER GENERAL EDUCATION.

NATOMAS WON THE GOLDEN BELL WITH WORK IN MENTAL HEALTH.

AND SEVERAL SITES HAVE WON STATE AWARDS FOR THE PBIS PROGRAMS. CHRISTINA, MOVE FORWARD.

ONE MORE SLIDE. LOOK AT THE PRESENT, BECAUSE OF THE STRONG FOUNDATION THAT NATOMAS HAS IN SO SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL SUPPORT, WE WERE ABLE TO MOVE QUICKLY WHEN THE PANDEMIC BECAME A REALITY FOR US.

SINCE AUGUST, WE HAVE PROVIDED 3467 STUDENTS WITH SO SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL SUPPORT AND THIS INCLUDES 947 STUDENTS WHO RECEIVE REGULARLY SCHEDULED HIGH INTENSITY SERVICES.

THE SOCIAL EMOTIONAL SUPPORT TEAM HAS EXPERIENCED A 852% INCREASE IN REFERRALS GOING FROM 16.5 PER MONTH TO 157 REFERRALS PER MONTH ON AVE AVERAGE.

OUR CRISIS RESPONSE TEAM HAS RESPONDED TO SIX AFTER-HOUR EMERGENCIES, AND I AM TALKING ABOUT MIDNIGHT 1 A.M., 2 A A.M., 4 A.M. AND THEY HAVE COMPLETED 61 SUICIDE RISK ASSESSMENTS SINCE AUGUST. THIS INCREASE IN NEED HAS RESULTED IN THE ADDITION OF TEN SOCIAL WORKERS.

OUR ABILITY TO MOVE QUICKLY COUPLED WITH THE BOARD'S

[00:45:02]

ACTION TO ADD SOCIAL WORKERS TO OUR TEAM HAVE ALLOWED US TO MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR MOSTS A-RISK POPULATION DURING THIS CHALLENGING TIME. TO MAINTAIN THIS LEVEL OF SUPPORT AND TRANSITION STUDENTS BACK TO SCHOOL, TO ADDRESS THE CONTINUED SO SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL NEEDS RESULTING FROM THE PANDEMIC AND TO ENSURE THAT OUR REGULAR WORK WITH SPECIAL EDUCATION IEPS AND ASSESSMENT GET DONE ON TIME WE WILL CONTINUE WITH COMMITMENT AND STAFFING.

TWO SLIDES FORWARD, CHRISTINA AND WE WILL TALK ABOUT THE PATH FORWARD. AS STUDENTS RETURN -- FOR US TO MAINTAIN THIS LEVEL OF SUPPORT AND SUCCESSFUL FLEE TRANSITION STUDENTS BACK INTO A STRUCTURED CLASSROOM REQUIREMENT, WE BELIEVE WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO STAFF OUR SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS AT THE 2019-2020 LEVEL.

WHEN WE WERE TALKING OF BUDGET CUTS, WE MADE THE REDUCTION.

POTENTIALLY WE MAY LOOK AT -- LOOK AT ADDING THREE NEW SOCIAL WORKERS FOR THE SECONDARY SCHOOL SITES AND HIRE TWO ADDITIONAL IA 3S. THE TECHNICIANS TO SUPPORT THE INCREASE OF BEHAVIOR AS STUDENTS START TO RETURN BACK TO SCHOOL. YOU CAN MOVE FORWARD, CHRISTINA. ONE MORE.

SO PHYSICAL HEALTH IS ALSO MY AREA.

A DISTRICT COMMITMENT. ONE OF OUR DISTRICT COMMITMENTS IS TO DEDICATE RESOURCES BASED ON THE DIVERSE AND UNIQUE NEEDS OF STUDENTS AND FAMILIES.

THAT IS ONE OUR COMMITMENTS. TODAY DURING THIS PANDEMIC, THIS SPEAKS TO THE WORK WE DO EVERY DAY WHEN WE ARE ADDRESSING STUDENT HEALTH DURING THIS PANDEMIC.

NEXT SLIDE. SO TALKING ABOUT THE PAST, TEN YEARS AGO, NATOMAS HAD ONE NURSE AND ONE LVN ASSIGNED TO THE STUDENT. ALL HEALTH ASSISTANTS HAVE BEEN LAID OFF DUE TO BUDGET REQUESTS.

AS THAT PROGRESS, HIRED HEALTH NURSE AND HAVE PHYSICIANS TO SHARE THEIR TIME BETWEEN TWO SITES.

TEN YEARS AGO SERVICES WERE LIMITED TO REQUIRED CARE BASED ON STUDENT HEALTH CARE PLANS, MANDATED SCREENING SUCH AS VISION AND HEARING AND MONITORING AND STATE REPORTING FOR IMMUNIZATIONS. 20 YEARS AGO, A LITTLE BIT FURTHER INTO THE PAST, THE IDEA FOR THE BURNS HEALTH CLINIC WAS BORN. NOT UNTIL THE 2014-'15 SCHOOL YEAR THIS BECAME A REALITY. THE CLINIC LOCATED ON THE NATOMAS HIGH SCHOOL CAMPUS OFFERS FREE CLASSES IN W WELLNESS AS WELL AS BASIC MEDICAL CARE, IMMUNIZATION, GLUCOSE, DENTAL AND VISION SCREENINGS AND FREE DENTAL WORK AND GLASSES JUST TO NAME A FEW THINGS.

HALO, A NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION TOOK OVER THE CLINIC TO OFFER A HIGHER LEVEL OF SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY.

WE TOOK THE CLINIC ALIVE AND OUR STAFF CONTINUED TO DO WORK AS THE BURNS IMMUNIZATION CLINIC.

IMMUNIZATIONS, MEDICAL SCREENINGS, DENTAL AND EYE EXAMS, HEALTH FAIRS AND VACCINES JUST TO NAME A FEW OF THE THINGS THAT WE CAN DO. NOW MOVE FORWARD CHRISTINE TO

THE PRESENT. >> I AM GOING TO INTERRUPT YOU FOR A MOMENT. I THINK WE NEED TO CLARIFY FOR OUR TRUSTEES AND PEOPLE WATCHING THAT WE HAVE THESE

DOTTED SLIDES HERE. >> YES, THE DOTTED SLIDES -- THEIR PLACE HOLDER

>> WHEN THIS IS POSTED HE RECEIVED THE POWERPOINT THE STORY SLIDE IS ãIN THE ACTUAL STORY IS ãWE DON'T WANT YOU TO READ WHILE WE ARE TALKING SO THAT'S WHY WE DO THAT.

>> LOOKING AT THE PRESENT FOR PHYSICAL HEALTH, PHYSICAL HEALTH ENCOMPASSES HEALTHCARE SERVICES ON PHYSICAL MOTOR HEALTH OF OUR SERVICES ESPECIALLY TODAY DURING OUR CURRENT SITUATION. OUR HEALTHCARE STAFF IS COMPRISED OF THREE REGISTERED NURSES ONE BOARD CERTIFIED NURSE PRACTITIONER TO LICENSED VOCATIONAL NURSES AND ADOLESCENTS VOCATIONAL INSTRUCTIONAL ASSISTANT ALL SITES NOW ãIN ADDITION TO THE SERVICES PROVIDED PRE-COVERED WE OFFER COVERT TESTING RAPID COVET TESTING, SPORTS ãCONTACT TRACING AND WHEN WE ARE ABLE WE EXPAND OUR COVID VACCINATIONS. IRECT HEALTHCARE IS WHAT WE NEED TO KEEP OUR STUDENTS HEALTHY PHYSICAL MOVEMENT IS CRITICAL AND REDUCING STRESS

[00:50:03]

AND ANXIETY. AND SPORTS CONDITIONING AND EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES.

SO LOOKING AT OUR PATH FORWARD BASED ON THE RAPIDLY CHANGING VISIBLE AND MENTAL HEALTH ENVIRONMENTS THIS IS RESEARCHING LAUNCHING A COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER AND RAPID TESTING AND WHEN WE CAN COVERT VACCINATIONS PHASE 2 IS THE MERGING OF THE ãTHAT WE ALREADY DO AND THE TESTING WORK THAT WE ARE DOING VACCINATIONS, PHYSICALS, SPORTS PHYSICALS AND FIRST-RATE PHYSICALS AND HEALTH SCREENINGS DENTAL AND EYE CARE AND MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES THE SUPPORT OF THIS WILL CONTINUE AS WE GO THROUGH THE PANDEMIC AND WE EVALUATE NEXT STEPS AND THE COST OF OPERATING A COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER WILL BE OFFSET BY SCHOOL-BASED GRANTS AND COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS STAFF IN THE FACILITY AND DASH PROGRAM. YOU CAN MOVE FORWARD.

>> GOOD EVENING. ALONG WITH MY COLLEAGUES WE ARE TALKINGABOUT ãFAMILY ENGAGEMENT AND . [INDISCERNIBLE] STUDENT SUCCESS I WILL TOUCH ON THE PAST AND 10 YEARS AGO AS A DISTRICT AND ENGAGEMENT OPPORTUNITIES AND COLLABORATION OPPORTUNITIES RELATIONSHIPS STUDENT SUCCESS CREATED AND A JEFFERSON SCHOOL OF THE PROGRAM EXPANDED TO SUPPORT FAMILIES IN ORDER TO SUPPORT THE DISTRICT INITIAL PROGRAM FOCUS WAS SKILLS AND EXPANDING A COLLEGE AND CAREER HEALTH AND WELLNESS AND PARENT-TEACHER ASSOCIATIONS ENGLISH ADVISORY COMMITTEE AND SCHOOL COUNSELING ON A DISTRICT LEVEL AND ENGLISH ADVISORY COMMITTEE AND IN REGARDS TO STUDENT ENGAGEMENT IN 2014 GRADES 368 11 AND ãDID NOT EXIST UNTIL 2015 NOW MY COLLEAGUE. [INDISCERNIBLE] > LOOKING AT THE PRESENT WE BELIEVE IN GIVING OUR STUDENTS FEEDBACK IT'S CRUCIAL ASIDE FROM GETTING FEEDBACK WE ALSO DO AN ANNUAL SURVEY AND RECEIVE FEEDBACK FROM THE PANDEMIC WE HAVE DONE A GREAT DEAL OF SOLICITING FEEDBACK FROM OUR FAMILIES TO SEE HOW THEY FEEL WE NEED TO DO ALSO HAVE A CENTRAL HOW TO PRESENT RESOURCES WITH ARTICLES AND RESOURCES FOR THE COMMUNITY AND THEY HELP SUPPORT THEIR STUDENTS AND WE HAVE NUMEROUS PARTNERSHIPS WITH ORGANIZATIONS SUCH AS FIRST ãTHE COMMUNITY CENTER AND SO THEY ARE IN THERE WITH US AND IN RESPONSE TO COVID WE HAVE HAD TO COME TOGETHER SO THE WORK WITH PARENT UNIVERSITY STUDENT SERVICES. [INDISCERNIBLE] NUMEROUS WORKSHOPS AND SPECIFICALLY TARGETING SUPPORTING FAMILIES WITH SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL AND THEN ONE OF THE BIG THINGS THAT HAPPEN IN THE PANDEMIC IS THAT THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES COMMITTED UP TO $1 MILLION TO HELP SUPPORT BRINGING THAT CONVICTION SPORTS CTE ACTIVITIES IN DIFFERENT SIDES AND. [INDISCERNIBLE] AND AS WE GO DOWN TO THE PATH FORWARD SO AS

[00:55:01]

WE MOVE FORWARD WE WILL CONTINUE LOOKING AT HOW TO SUPPORT OUR KIDS AND DISTANCE LEARNING AND HOW TO CONTINUE AND TO SUPPORT EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES AND THOSE PROGRAMS AND OTHER ACTIVITIES THAT BRING OUR KIDS AND MAKE THEM PART OF THE COMMUNITY AND ALSO HELPS THE PARENTS WITH PUTTING THEIR STUDENTS IN THE COMMUNITY AND WE ARE LOOKING AT COLLEGE FIELD TRIPS BRINGING A CAREER ãAND HOW WE PROVIDE ONGOING SOCIAL EMOTIONAL SUPPORT AND WORKSHOPS AND CONTINUING TO GROW THOSE PARTNERSHIPS THAT WE HAVE AND BRINGING IN NEW PARTNERSHIPS AND TALKING ABOUT COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER AND. [INDISCERNIBLE]

>> THANK YOU. SO THE NEXT PIECE WE'VE TALKED QUITE A BIT ABOUT THIS YEAR AND THAT'S ILLUMINATING THE DIGITAL ã10 YEARS AGO, TO TELL A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY WE HAD NO WI-FI ACCESS EVERYTHING WAS HARDWIRED THERE WAS CLASSROOMS WHERE THERE WERE FOUR COMPUTER DEVICES THAT WERE PLUGGED INTO THE UNIT AND TO TRY TO ALLOW ADDITIONAL ACCESS TO STUDENTS IN THE CLASSROOM IN THE TECH DEPARTMENT AND HAVE A LEADER AND BUDGET CUTS AND THE TECH DEPARTMENT DID NOT ALLOW LAPTOPS AND NO WI-FI IN FACT THE LAPTOP OVERHEATED THE SOLUTION WAS, VERY SIMPLE AND PUT AN ICE PACK ON AND THAT WAS A LEVEL OF TECH SAVVY AND

>> THAT'S A TRUE STORY. >> NOW IN 2013 THE FIRST SYSTEMATIC WI-FI NETWORK WAS INSTALLED A TECH MASTER PLAN FOLLOW SHORTLY AFTER THAT AND THEY LAID THE FRAMEWORK FOR EACH HAVING A LAPTOP, AND IPAD, AND APPLE TV IN THEIR CLASSROOM AND CHROME BOOKS WERE ADDED BY CENTRAL BUDGETS AND SINGLE PLAN FOR STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AND THEY STARTED BUYING CHROME BOOK CARD SO THERE WERE SOME ESSENTIAL GROUNDWORK IMPLEMENTED FOR DEVICES AND TRAINING AND EXPANDING SUPPORT AND INFRASTRUCTURE A CHROME BOOK CARD AS YOU WILL RECALL IS PROVIDED FOR EVERY TWO CLASSES THAT'S WHERE WE WERE AND ASKED BEFORE THE PANDEMIC HIT AND AS YOU KNOW ALL OF THE WORK BEFORE THE PANDEMIC ALLOWED US TO RAPIDLY SCALE UP AND ELIMINATE THE DIGITAL DIVIDE BY THE SUMMER OF 2020 THE EXPERIENCES OF PLANNING AND THEY WILL PROVIDE TO ALL FAMILIES AND INTERNET CONNECTION AND A CHROME BOOK DEVICE ACCOMPLISHING THIS 1.8 MILLION FOR INTERNET ACCESS IN AN ADDITIONAL ãFOR DEVICES FEDERAL AND STATE STIMULUS MONEY HAS ALLOWED US TO TEMPORARILY BRIDGE THIS GAP AND THESE INVESTMENTS HAVE CHANGED HOW YOU CAN ACCESS AND PROCESS CONTENT AND INSTRUCTION AND THEIR OWN SUSTAINABLE WITHOUT REJECTIONS ELSEWHERE ONGOING MONEY IS NOT CURRENTLY IN THE BUDGET TO SUSTAIN THE SO AS WE LOOK AT THE PATH FORWARD AS WE CONSIDER OUR STUDENTS RETURNING TO THE PHYSICAL SCHOOL SITES AND IF WE WERE TO MAINTAIN A ONE TO ONE STUDENT TO TEACHER RATIO WE WOULD HAVE TO CONTINUE TO PURCHASE AND INCLUDED OUR REFRESH PLANNING CYCLES MORE DEVICES FOR STUDENTS WE WOULD NEED TO INVEST ENOUGH THAT WE WERE ONE-TO-ONE BUT HAVE THE CONTINGENCY AS THERE ARE DAMAGES AND THINGS OUT GETTING TAKEN CARE OF AND TO HAVE STUDENTS USE THEM WE WOULD NEED TO PURSUE A LOWER COST OPTION AND OBVIOUSLY YOU SAW THE NUMBER OF CALLS FOR SUPPORT AROUND TECHNOLOGY WE WOULD HAVE TO INCREASE STAFFING AND THE LEVEL OF SUPPORT LONG-TERM TO SUSTAIN THE STUDENTS AND THEY WOULD HAVE TO TAKE ACTION WHILE ENSURING THAT WE HAVE A BALANCED BUDGET IN THIS AREA.

I HANDED OVER TO DOUG ã >> GOOD EVENING. TONIGHT WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT OUR STUDENTS PROVIDING NUTRITION TO OUR STUDENTS AND A FOUNDATIONAL THING THAT

[01:00:04]

[01:05:02]

SERVICE OPTIONS AND SO WE HAVE PROVIDED FOOD BOXES WHEN AVAILABLE AND HELP THEM FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO THE BAGS AND OUR STRATEGIC PLANNING HAS ALLOWED US TO SAVE MONEY WHILE CONTINUING TO GROW THE PROGRAM AND WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR FOR THE FUTURE IS KEEPING THOSE FINANCIAL RESERVES TO BUILD UP AND HELP IF AND WHEN WE SEE A DROP IN REVENUE AS WE COME OUT OF THE PANDEMIC AND WE WANT TO BE SMART AND WE WANT TO LOOK AT ANY BONDING AND TO KEEP US GOING TO KEEP US GOING PROGRAMS FOR KIDS KIDS PICKED UP THEIR MEAL ON A FRIDAY AND WE HAD A VIDEO A COOK ALONG VIDEO AND EXPANSION AND THINGS LIKE THAT AND ALSO GETTING INTO THE SCHOOLS AND SHARING THINGS LIKE NEW FRUITS, ORANGE, THINGS LIKE THAT, TEACHING KIDS ABOUT THAT KIND OF STUFF A LOT OF PEOPLE HAD NEVER SEEN A PERSIMMONS AND THEY LOVE THEM AND KEEPING OUR REVENUE STREAMS GOING AND MOBILE SERVICE AND BACK SINCE MARCH AND WHEN WE RETURNED TO SCHOOLS WE'RE GOING TO NEED TO BE ABLE TO SERVE IN A VARIETY OF ãAND THAT WE NEED FOR THE PANDEMIC AND BEYOND WITH LOOKING AT INFRASTRUCTURE AND MOBILE DISTRIBUTION THROUGH THE COMMUNITY AND TO HELP SERVE THE COMMUNITY.

TURN IT OVER TO CAROL. >> WE TALK ABOUT SUPPORTING FAMILIES WITH HOMELESSNESS AND EDUCATING RESOURCES AND HOW WE DID THE RESOURCES TO OUR FAMILIES BASED ON THEIR NEEDS IS THE CRITICAL WORK OF STUDENT SERVICES SO HOW WE SUPPORT OUR HOMELESS FAMILIES AND SO LOOKING AT THE PAST 10 YEARS AGO THE HOMELESS PROGRAM CONSISTED OF .25 ADMINISTRATOR THAT'S 12 HOURS OF SUPPORT AND THERE WAS LIMITED OUTREACH AND THE FOCUS ON DETERMINING AND ADDRESSING THE CAUSE OR BARRIERS TO LEARNING AND THIS

[01:10:06]

DEPARTMENT WAS CREATED TO SUPPORT ãWERE TARGETED AND DEDICATED ADMINISTRATOR AND SOCIAL WORK INTERNS RESPONSIBLE FOR SUPPORTING STUDENTS OVER TIME COORDINATING CARE PARTNERS, MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES BACKPACK, TOY DRIVE, EXPANSION OF MEALS, SNACKS, NUTRITION SERVICES, AND ESTABLISHING TO SUPPORT FAMILIES WITH FOOD AND SO AS WE LOOK TO THE PRESENT AS A DIRECT RESULT OF THE PANDEMIC HIRING SOCIAL WORKERS AND THE KEY FOCUS OF OUR CURRENT PROGRAM IS THE BARRIERS THAT PREVENT STUDENTS FROM ACCESSING ã SERVICES NOW INCLUDING PARTIAL CREDIT ã MONITORING HOME VISITS SOCIAL EMOTIONAL SERVICES AND DURING DISTANCE-LEARNING WE PRIORITIZE STUDENTS WHO ARE HOMELESS WE PRIORITIZE SERVICES TO ã SERVICES SOCIAL EMOTIONAL SUPPORT AND BACKPACK AND DRIVES AND. [INDISCERNIBLE] 32,000 BAGS OF GROCERIES TO OUR FAMILIES AND THE 2020 YEAR WE ENTERED IT BY NEEDING A DONATION DRIVE TO PROVIDE FOOD AND HOUSING FOR 25 HOMELESS FAMILIES AND STUDENTS DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON.

AND THIS WAS A STATEMENT THAT SOUNDS ãTHAT RESONATED WITH ME AND SHE SAID HOMELESSNESS IS USUALLY NOT AN EVENT IT'S A PROCESS THAT TAKES YEARS AND SO THROUGH THE PROPOSED COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER PHASE 3 OF THIS PROPOSAL IS THE STAFF FROM DEPARTMENTS AGENCY LINKAGES TO PROVIDE COORDINATED SERVICES FOR OUR FAMILY SUCH AS JOB SKILLS TRAINING MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORTS SUBSTANCE ABUSE COUNSELING AND ALL SKILLS ARE NECESSARY TO REMOVE BARRIERS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO HOMELESSNESS AND HELP THEM ACCESS THEIR EDUCATION COST AGAIN AS WE SPOKE ABOUT COMMUNITY RESOURCE AND AGENCY PARTNERSHIPS NECESSARY STAFFING THAT WE DISCUSSED AND THIS IS SOMETHING WE CHOOSE TO MOVE FORWARD WITH AND NOW

>> IN THIS AREA WE ARE FOCUSING ON SUPPORTING SCHOOLS AND EACH OF THE SCHOOLS DEVELOPED INCLUSIVE ENGAGING SAFE SUPPORTIVE CULTURES OF CLIMATES FOR STUDENTS AND AS WE LOOK IN THE PAST IN THE PAST 10 YEARS THERE'S DEFINITELY A VARIETY OF APPROACHES TO IMPROVE OUTCOMES THERE HAS BEEN A MAJOR FOCUS AND AND TO BETTER MEET THE NEEDS OF MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS AND THAT INCLUDED MAKING INVESTMENTS IN ADDITIONAL STAFFING AND FACILITIES THAT ALL THREE SITES SO AS YOU KNOW OVER THE LAST SEVERAL MONTHS WE HAVE UPDATES AND WE NEED MULTIPLE INVESTMENTS IN DIFFERENT INITIATIVES AND PILOTS OVER THE YEARS TO GET IT HOW WE CAN SUPPORT STUDENTS IN THESE SCHOOLS AND TO BE HONEST IN SOME CASES THEY HAVE NOT ACHIEVED THE RESULT AND REALLY WAS TRYING TO SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS GAINING ACCESS TO RIGOROUS OPPORTUNITIES THAT ARE SOMEWHAT INCONSISTENT AT THAT TIME JEFFERSON SCHOOL MADE SOME PROMISING IMPROVEMENTS BUT ã CONTINUES TO UNDERPERFORM THEY ARE QUALIFIED IN THE COMPREHENSIVE SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PLAN A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN AT THAT POINT AS YOU RECALL WE FORMED A TEAM TO ADDRESS THEIR NEEDS THERE WERE SOME WORK TEAMS REVIEWING BEST PRACTICES ENGAGE WITH STAKEHOLDERS AND MADE NOTE OF PROMISING PRACTICES WITHIN OUR DISTRICT AND YOU HEARD FROM ã IN PARTICULAR IN REGARDS TO

[01:15:03]

IMPLEMENTATION AND INSTRUCTIONAL FRAMEWORK AND USING DATA AND INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGIES THAT WERE SHOWING PROMISE AND IMPROVEMENT AND WE IDENTIFIED FOUR PILLARS TO GUIDE OUR WORK IMPROVING TEACHING AND LEARNING CLIMATE CULTURE STUDENT AND FAMILY ENGAGEMENT AND TRANSFORMATION AND DEVELOPED A REGIONAL THEORY OF ACTUALLY PROVIDED FOR CENTRAL SUPPORTS FOR SCHOOL SHOWING IMPROVEMENT.

ADDITIONALLY THE HEALTH CLINIC THAT YOU HEARD MUCH ABOUT TONIGHT AND WE ALSO ADDED A CAPSTONE PROGRAM AND ACCESS AND TO PROVIDE A BETTER ABILITY TO BECOME COLLEGE AND CAREER READY ANNA 2020 IN EARLY 2020 THE TRUSTEES APPROVED FUNDING TO SUPPORT AMERICAN ãTO SUSPEND ã SUSTAIN WORK AT JEFFERSON WAS A CANDIDATES AND STILL ALLOWING THOSE AND THEN HAVING THE INDIVIDUAL SITE FOCUS FOR AMERICAN LEAGUES AND AS WE LOOK AT HOW WE HAVE BEEN IMPACTED THE THING THAT IS ENCOURAGING, WE CONTINUE TO MOVE FORWARD WITH DIFFERENT BODIES OF WORK AND SO AS I MENTIONED THEY HAVE JOINED JEFFERSON AND THAT STATUS AND VIRTUALLY THEY HAD COMPLETED THE TRAINING THAT WAS REQUIRED FOR THE FIRST YEAR PROGRESS TO ALIGN THE INSTRUCTION AND AGAIN JEFFERSON CONTINUES THEIR PROGRESS AND IS PREPARING FOR AUTHORIZATION AND THEY ARE PROVIDING MORE CONSISTENT ACCESS RIGOROUS OPPORTUNITIES A TEACHER ON SPECIAL ASSIGNMENT ãTHERE IS ANOTHER ONE IN JEFFERSON AND THESE WORK TOGETHER TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER AND LEARN FROM PRACTICES AND TO ADDRESS SOCIAL EMOTIONAL NEEDS THEY EACH WERE ASSIGNED SOCIAL WORKERS AND MANAGERS ACTUALLY THAT WERE PLACED AT THOSE SITES TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL SUPPORT AND THE TRUSTEES THAT YOU HAVE APPROVED AND WE WERE ABLE TO ADD AND LAUNCH A CTE PATHWAY TO MUSIC PRODUCTION THIS SCHOOL YEAR AND NATOMAS HIGH SCHOOL HAS MADE THE CHOICE TO CONTINUE TO WORK WITH A TRAINING IF MASTER SCHEDULING AND A MINDSET FOR THEIR STAFF AS THEY FOCUS ON HOW THEY CAN BEST SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS TO HAVE MORE INDIVIDUALIZED NEEDS AS WE LOOK AT THE PATH FORWARD THE WORK WE ARE DOING TODAY HAS TO CONTINUE FOR PROVIDING MORE CONSISTENT ACCESS AND RIGOROUS INSTRUCTIONAL OPPORTUNITIES ACROSS THE EDGCT IMPLEMENTING T AREA OF ACTION AND PILLARS TOWARDS TEACHING AND LEARNIN AND ENGAGEMENT FACILITIES IT REQUIRES A CONTINUED FINANCIAL INVESTMENT SO IT ENTAILS IMPLEMENTATION OF INSTRUCTIONAL FRAMEWORK AND INVESTMENTS IN PROGRAMS INCLUDE THINGS SUCH AS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT THE APPROPRIATE STAFFING AND RELATED PROGRAM FEES STAFFING THE SUPPORTS SOCIAL EMOTIONAL NEEDS OF OUR STUDENTS AND FAMILIES SUCH AS THE INVESTMENT AND OUR COMPLETION OF THE CONVERSION PROJECTS THOSE ARE ALL CONSIDERATIONS WE ARE MAKING AND WE WILL BURY BRINGING FORWARD TO YOU AS WE TALK ABOUT THE BUDGET AND THE LAST AREA OF TRUSTEES THAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT IS DIVERSITY INVESTMENT AND SUPPORT AND DISPARITY NEEDING TO BE ELIMINATED WE BELIEVE IN THE DIVERSITY OF OUR DISTRICT AND 10 YEARS AGO I WOULD SAY THERE IS MINIMAL ATTENTIONAL ACTION ON THE DIVERSITY OF OUR STAFF AND STUDENTS AND ANALYZING THE DATA AROUND HOW STUDENTS WERE ACCESSING CURRICULUM VARIED ATTEMPTS WERE MADE IN BRINGING CULTURAL AWARENESS OR PROFICIENCY IN EDUCATION AND THE DISTRICT WE DIDN'T HAVE A STRATEGIC DIVERSITY PROGRAM 10 YEARS AGO AND ãWAS EMERGING

[01:20:04]

WITH DISPARITY AND DISPROPORTIONALITY MOVING FROM THE THEORY OF ACTION FOR ACTUAL LIMITATION OF THE LAST SEVERAL PYEARS IN 2013 THE COURT ADOPTE THE VISION AND CORE BELIEF THAT WE HAVE TODAY AND THERE WERE SUBSEQUENT INVESTMENTS PROVIDING A VARIETY OF PROGRAMS ACADEMIC AND OTHERWISE TO SUPPORT STUDENTS REGARDLESS OF THE BACKGROUND AND A 2017 AS WE TALKED ABOUT DIVERSITY YOU WILL RECALL YOU APPROVED ARE TEACHER RECRUITMENT PROGRAM THAT WAS A MULTIUSER EFFORT TO ADDRESS THE NEED TO ãTEACHERS WHO WERE QUALIFIED AND WE HAVE SHARED DATA IN THE LAST YEAR AS WE TALK ABOUT THE PRESENT REGARDING THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS ADDRESSING RIGOROUS PROGRAMS THAT SUPPORT COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS AND YOUR CONTINUED TRUSTEES PROVIDING EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES FOR STUDENTS NOT DEPENDENT ON A SCHOOLS FUNDRAISING ABILITY OVER THE LAST THREE YEARS WE HAVE HAD 29 DIVERSE FUTURE TEACHER CANDIDATES IN OUR PROGRAM.

OF THOSE, 17 HAVE COMPLETED AND ARE TEACHING IN THE CLASSROOMS WE ACTUALLY GOT TO SEE ONE TODAY AND NOW IN 2021 WE HAVE SEEN AN INCREASE OF STAFF FROM DIVERSE BACKGROUNDS AND THIS NUMBER IS CONTINUING TO INCREASE ANNUALLY 2016.

WE ARE ABLE TO PARTNER WITH ORGANIZATIONS SUCH AS THE ã NETWORK AND RECRUITMENT EVENTS AND WE HAVE VISITED BLACK COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES AND ESTABLISH RELATIONSHIPS WITH THEM IN SOME AGREEMENTS AROUND RECRUITING SOME OF THOSE HARD TO FILL POSITIONS BRINGING THEM BACK TO OUR DISTRICT OVER THE LAST YEAR ANOTHER INITIATIVE THE TRUSTEES HAVE INVESTED IN IS THAT THEY ARE VOLUNTARILY PARTICIPATING IN A RESEARCH PROJECT THROUGH UC BERKELEY FACULTY YOU HAVE HEARD US TALK ABOUT DOCTOR JASON WHO HAS BEEN WORKING WITH US TO INCREASE THE QUALITY OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN STUDENTS AND STAFF, TO INCREASE DISPARITY IN PROPORTIONALITY AND STUDYING BIAS, POLICIES AND PROCEDURES AND THAT AGREEMENT THAT WE HAVE WITH HIM CONTINUES AS WE ARE BEGINNING TO REALLY ANALYZE THE DATA FROM SERVING ãTHE RESEARCH THAT HAS BEEN CONDUCTED AS WE LOOK AT THE PATH FORWARD BASED ON MORE DIRECTION WE WILL CONTINUE TO INVEST IN PROGRAMS FOR STUDENTS THAT INVEST IN EQUITY AND ANALYZE DATA TO HELP US IMPROVE IN THAT AREA AND IN ADDITION WE WILL SEEK CANDIDATES TO FILL VACANCIES UTILIZING THE PARTNERSHIPS THAT WE HAVE BUILT OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS AND ARE TEACHER GRADUATES WILL ã PLACEMENT AND VACANCIES AND I WILL TELL YOU THAT THAT MULTIYEAR INVESTMENT HAS CONCLUDED.

PWE HAVE MADE OUR LAST INVESTMENT IN THOSE RECRUITS OUR WORK WITH THE DOCTOR WILL TRANSITION FROM DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS TO STARTING TO SHAPE ONE OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS TO UNIFY FOR HOW WE CAN SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS AND INCREASING DISPARITY IN PROPORTIONALITY AND SO AS WE FINISH TELLING SOME STORIES I HAVE TO SAY YOU ARE VERY QUIET AND LISTENING OBVIOUSLY WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY AND ONE OF THE THINGS WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE ARE TRYING TO PAINT A PICTURE OF TONIGHT IS WHO WE ARE.

THE WORK THAT HAS GONE INTO THE ORGANIZATION IN THIS COMMUNITY AND UNDERSTANDING WHAT IT WILL TAKE TO CONTINUE TO MOVE FORWARD AGAIN AS I SAID IN THE BEGINNING WE CAN DO ANYTHING BUT WE CAN'T DO EVERYTHING ON LIMITED RESOURCES SO WHEN WE WERE PRESENTING TONIGHT WE WANTED TO KIND OF SHAPE SOMETHING IN THE INVESTMENTS WE HAVE BEEN MAKING AND IT'S IMPORTANT TO HEAR FROM YOU AND TO HEAR FROM THE STAKEHOLDERS TO UNDERSTAND THE MOST VALUABLE DECISION THAT WE NEED TO MAKE UNDERSTANDING IT AND THINGS THAT WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SUSTAIN IN THE FUTURE SO THIS WAS JUST A FIRST ATTEMPT AT HAVING THAT CONVERSATION AND OBVIOUSLY WE WILL BE BRINGING

[01:25:08]

THIS BACK AS WE GO THROUGH OUR BUDGET CYCLE AND CONTINUE TO REVISIT SOME OF THESE IDEAS AND CONCEPTS THAT WE BROUGHT FORWARD TONIGHT SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION AND IF THERE ARE QUESTIONS.

>> >> I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR THE ãAND I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS.

I THINK ALSO YOU AMPLIFIED ONE OF OUR ãDIVERSITY AND STRENGTH AND THAT WE ARE INVESTING THE SUPPORT FOR OUR DIVERSE DISTRICT AND MY QUESTION WAS ABOUT LITERACY HAVING HEARD MUCH INFORMATION ABOUT IT I AM SURE MAYBE YOU FORGOT ABOUT.

[INDISCERNIBLE] LITERACY SO ARE THERE ANY UPDATES ABOUT THAT?

>> I WILL MAKE SURE THERE IS INFORMATION COMING AT AS WE PLAN AND PREPARE FOR STUDENTS TAKING THE EXAM SO WE WILL MAKE SURE THAT INFORMATION IS OUT THERE

>> THANKS FOR THAT FEEDBACK.

>> QUESTIONS?

>> YOU DID SUCH A GREAT JOB IT'S ALMOST LIKE WHATEVER YOU ARE SELLING AND AS YOU SAID I THINK I LOOK FORWARD TO STAFF HAS ALWAYS DONE A GOOD JOB PREPARING THE BUDGET HOW THIS RELATES WHAT IS THE COST PROPOSAL WE ARE WE WITH ONE-TIME FUNDS ALSO WITH RECOMMENDATIONS WHERE WE ARE HAVING THE GREATEST STUDENT IMPACT ALSO AS THAT ALIGNS TO OUR L CAP BECAUSE THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS THAT WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE PRIORITIZE BUDGET WISE HOW DOES THAT FIT IN AND MAYBE THINGS NEED TO BE ON THE THREE YEAR PLAN I AM OPEN TO THAT BECAUSE I SEE US AND THE WELLNESS AND STUDENT RESOURCE CENTER IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING THAT WE ARE SUPPORTIVE OF BUT I UNDERSTAND IT MAY TAKE WHAT YOU STATED IN PHASES AND WAS THE COST AND HOW ARE WE DOING THAT BUT MY FOCUS FIRST AND FOREMOST IS OUR MOST AT RISK ãSTUDENTS ONLY LOOK AT THE SURFACES THAT WE SHOULD PRIORITIZE.

>> THANKS. ANYONE ELSE? IT WAS A GREAT PRESENTATION AND I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING WHAT IT COMES TO AND AS WE BUILD ON IT I WORRY ABOUT AT RISK AND

>> ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS?

>> A LOT OF INFORMATION BUT GREAT JOB PLACES WHERE WE HAVE WE HAVE DONE A LOT AND. [INDISCERNIBLE] REQUIRED THANK

YOU. >>.

[INDISCERNIBLE] >> THE IDEA THAT WE CAN DO EVERYTHING BUT NOT EVERYTHING IS A VERY DIFFICULT STATEMENT TO ADHERE TO BECAUSE THE PRESENTATION.

IT WAS REPEATED AND RESOURCES AND PERSONNEL AND BUDGET COSTS FOR THESE ITEMS AND ONE OF THE THINGS I AM APPRECIATIVE OF IS WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHERE WE WERE 10 YEARS AGO AND THEY CAN PROBABLY ATTEST TO THIS AND WHERE WE ARE TODAY I THINK WHAT HAPPENS IS PEOPLE LOSE SIGHT OF THE PROGRESS THAT WE HAVE MADE AND THAT PROGRESS THAT WE HAVE MADE WAS DEPENDENT UPON WHATEVER FUNDING WE GOT FOR THE STATE AND MANY TIMES NOT ONLY DEPENDENT UPON FUNDING FOR SCHOOLS BUT DEPENDENT UPON THE PERSON AND IF WE HAVE THE RIGHT PERSONNEL IN PLACE AND WE HAVE

[01:30:07]

COME A LONG WAY AND WE WERE GOING TO MANAGE THE BUDGET AND IDENTIFY PRIORITIES AND WITH THE APPROPRIATE ãAND A CHANGE IN THE DISTRICT AND GOOD JOB IN DOING THAT ALSO AND ONE OF THE THINGS ABOUT EDUCATION IS THAT WE ARE ALWAYS IN NEED AND IN A CRISIS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HELPED ME SUSTAIN MY PATIENT PERSONALITY AND DIDN'T WANT YESTERDAY AND.

[INDISCERNIBLE] WHEN WE AS TRUSTEES PRESENT THOSE OPTIONS STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS I THINK IT HELPS TO GIVE THE PUBLIC ã CHANGE IS COMING AND IT HAS CHANGED OVER TIME BECAUSE THAT CHANGE OVER TIME IS CRITICAL BECAUSE CHANGE OVER TIME FORCES US TO LOOK AT WHAT ARE WE DOING RIGHT AND WHAT ARE WE DOING WRONG AND YOU WANT TO BRING ABOUT THIS SUSTAINED CHANGE IN THE DISTRICT AND WE DID DEFAULT TO PROGRAMS AND WE HAVE PROGRAMS AND PROGRAMS AND PROGRAMS AND THERE WAS NO REAL ACCOUNTABILITY FOR EVALUATION IN TERMS OF PROGRAMS THAT WERE IN PLACE AND I THINK THAT HAS CHANGED BECAUSE OF THE DATA THAT IS CONSTANTLY SHARED WITH THE TRUSTEES AND THE STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AND OTHER PROGRAMS IN TERMS OF ãSO I WISH THAT WE COULD HAVE. [INDISCERNIBLE] I WANT SOMEONE TO FACT CHECK SO WE COULD DO ALL OF THIS BECAUSE WE DESERVE IT ALL BUT AGAIN AT THE SAME TIME IT'S WHAT IS IT THAT WE CAN DO THAT WE WILL HAVE A LASTING EFFECT WHEN IS IT THAT WE CAN SUSTAIN EVEN IN TIMES WE HAVE THE LEAST AMOUNT OF RESOURCES SO ANYWAY I APPRECIATE THE TIME AND THE EFFORT AND YOUR NARRATIVES THIS WAS NICE IT WAS A LITTLE DISCONCERTING BECAUSE WE ARE USED TO SEEING PRINT BUT I APPRECIATE THE STORYTELLING AND JUST REALLY THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK SO NOW I'M GOING TO TURN OVER TO SUPERINTENDENT EVIDENCE WHO PROBABLY WANTS TO SHARE SOME COMMENTS ALSO.

>> I THINK THEY DID A FINE JOB.

>> APPROVAL OF CONSENT.

>> I COULDN'T HEAR YOU. YOU WERE ON MUTE.

>> THAT WAS CHRISTINA MAKING SURE I DIDN'T SAY SOMETHING

[XIV.b. Present and Consider Continuing Day Camps During Distance Learning]

ACTION ITEM THIS IS CONTINUING DAY CAMPS DURING DISTANCE LEARNING. IS THERE A PRESENTATION ON THIS?

>> YES.

>> ALL RIGHT.

>> TRUSTEES STAFF AND OUR FAMILIES AND STUDENTS.

>> THEY KNOW MOST OF THIS. FLY LIKE THE WIND.

>> >> HE IS GIVING YOU PERMISSION TO MOVE QUICKLY.

>> THEY KNOW MOST OF THIS GO-AHEAD.

>> GOT IT.

>> THE BOTTOM LINE.

>> SO I CAME BACK AND REQUESTED THE TRUSTEES.

>> A LOT OF WHAT I'M GOING TO PRESENT IS ãAND THE SAME TIMELINE THE EXTENSION OF THE BOARD APPROVED AND TO APPROVE

DAY CAMPS AND >> I WOULD GIVE YOU AN ENROLLMENT UPDATE YOU CAN SEE THE ENROLLMENT THROUGH LAST FRIDAY THE 15TH AND IT IS NOW 235 THE EXTENDED CONTRACT AND IT GIVES US ABOUT A DAILY AVERAGE 186 DAILY ATTENDANCE AVERAGE FOR THE MONTH OF JANUARY SO FAR AND DECEMBER'S PRESENTATION OF 194 AND AS I SAID ENROLLMENT HAS DROPPED TO P235 WHICH IS FINE WE HAD 278 W DID HAVE FAMILIES THAT DROPPED OUT AFTER DECEMBER AND LOOKING FOR ALTERNATIVE CHILDCARE AND SO FAR STUDENTS HAVE DECLINED ENROLLMENT DROPPED OUT NEVER ATTENDED LOOKING AT THE TIME FRAME THE CONTRACT IS FROM ã AND YOU CAN SEE THAT 68 PERCENT STUDENTS ATTEND FROM ãAND THE REMAINING ATTEND FROM 4 PM TO 6 PM AND THAT VARIES.

AND THIS IS JUST AN UPDATE FROM WHAT YOU SAW AND DECEMBER ADDING ADDITIONAL COST THROUGH THE END OF FEBRUARY AND ãWHICH IS OUR SERVICE ãAND INDIVIDUALIZED SUPPORT LATER ON

[01:40:04]

$20,000 AND RIGHT NOW SINCE AUGUST 1 $0.3 MILLION.

AND AS YOU HEARD THEM TALK ABOUT AT OUR LAST SUPPORT PRESENTATION THIS BUDGET CONSIDERATION WE HAVE SOME UNKNOWNS AND A COST TO BE CONSIDERATE OF AND SOME COSTS AT THIS POINT IN THE ONGOING PPE SO I JUST WANT TO REMIND EVERYONE THAT WE ARE STILL PROVIDING CHILDCARE THE TOTAL IS THE SAME BUT THE NUMBERS HAVE CHANGED SO PROBABLY ABOUT

160 STUDENTS CURRENTLY. >> SO IF YOU CAN GO BACK I WILL TALK TOMORROW ABOUT HOW WE DROP ALL THE SLIDES AND STUFF BUT GO BACK PLEASE THIS IS THE ONE THE BOARD ASKS WE TALK ABOUT WE CAN DO ANYTHING AND WE ARE INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE BUDGET THIS IS THE SLIDE EVEN THOUGH IT'S A REMINDER THEY'RE TRYING TO PUT TOGETHER FOR YOU IF WE'RE GOING TO KEEP WI-FI CONNECTED FOR STUDENTS THAT CURRENTLY HAVE THAT NUMBER COULD GO UP OR DOWN IT'S $150,000 A MONTH AND IS NOT SOMETHING THAT'S EASY TO TURN ON AND OFF IN JULY AND PARTIALLY AUGUST SO YOU'RE NOT JUST LOOKING AT 1.5 MILLION YOUR LOOKING AT 1.8 AND WE ARE LOOKING TO SEE AND I WANT YOU TO THINK ABOUT AND IT'S NOT CHANGING ANY DECISION AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHY THE TEAM SAID WE CAN'T DO ANYTHING.

THOSE ARE BIG DOLLAR AMOUNTS THAT ARE STARTING TO RUN UP AND IT'S ALL DOABLE AND I DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THIS BUT THAT THE END OF THE LAST CONVERSATION ãTURN ON HER SCREEN AND SAT FORWARD AND PAID ATTENTION BECAUSE A LOT OF THE THINGS THAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT RIGHT NOW THAT YOU WANT TO GET INFORMATION ON THE PROPOSED JANUARY BUDGET IT'S VERY DIFFERENT. AND I CAN TELL YOU I DO NOT THINK IT WILL BE ANYTHING CLOSE TO WHERE IT IS NOW IT WILL EVENTUALLY END UP IN JUNE WHEN IT IS SIGN SO THIS WILL BE ONE OF THOSE BUDGET YEARS WERE WE ARE GIVING YOU BUDGET GUIDELINES AS OPPOSED TO VERY SPECIFIC HERE IS EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE GOING TO GET AND GOVERNOR BROWN AND HE WILL LISTEN ON THIS ISSUE AND HERE WE GO SO THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR US TO PAUSE AND MAKE SURE IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU ARE AWARE THAT YOU ARE SPENDING MONEY THAT WE MIGHT HAVE TO CUT OFF A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF WI-FI AS EARLY AS JUNE OR JULY SO I WANT TO MAKE SURE WE SLOW DOWN THESE MOMENTS.

ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FOR THE BOARD?

>> I THINK WE HAVE TO LOOK AT ALTOGETHER AND UNDERSTANDING WHERE THE BUDGET IS.

>> AND WE WILL GO THROUGH AND SOME OF THE QUESTIONS THAT WERE BROUGHT UP DURING THE LAST PRESENTATION THAT WE TALKED ABOUT COULD WE CONSOLIDATE SOME OF THOSE AND THE STAFF WENT BACK AND LOOKED AT ãTHANK YOU. AND SO THE STAFF LOOKED AT IF WE WERE TO CONSOLIDATE TAKING STUDENTS OFF HOMESCHOOL SITES RIGHT NOW THEY HAVE BEEN ATTENDING AND GOING TO SCHOOL WITH THE STAFF THEY HAVE CREATED RELATIONSHIPS WITH FAMILIES AND OUR SCHOOL STAFF AND PROVIDING SUPPORT SO REMOVING THEM FROM THAT ENVIRONMENT WOULD BE A DISADVANTAGE BECAUSE YOU ARE PUTTING THEM INTO A NEW ARENA AND THE OTHER THING IS WE LOOKED AT THE BREAKDOWN OF GROUPS SOME SCHOOL SITES HAVE A LARGER GROUP AND THEY DON'T UTILIZE IT AS MUCH AND SO STAFF HAS PUT THE NEED TO HIT THAT 220 AND THE OTHER THING IS WE TALKED ABOUT TRANSPORTATION

[01:45:03]

PIECE WHICH WE CAN ACCOMMODATE AND EVEN MORE IS THE ASPECT OF THESE DAY CAMPS ARE ATTEND TO ONE RATIOS AND ITS SMALL FOR KEEPING KIDS CONTAIN SO WHEN THERE IS AN OUTBREAK NORMALLY HAVING TO CLOSE NOT HAVING TO DO PROGRAM AND ONE OF THE THINGS THE BOARD TALKED ABOUT WAS POSSIBLY LOOKING INTO TAKING STUDENTS I SPOKE WITH ã AND I TALKED ABOUT THE DECEMBER MEETING THEY DON'T HAVE THE CAPACITY TO ENROLL ALL OF THOSE STUDENTS EVEN IF WE WERE TO PAY MORE AND THERE'S ALSO EQUITY FOR FAMILIES WHO ARE PAYING AND WE ARE STRUGGLING JUST TO KEEP STAFF AND PROGRAMS CURRENTLY AND THEY LOSE ONE THEY HIGHER 2 IT'S A STRUGGLE AND THEY HAVE ALWAYS SAID WE HAVE A ASSIGNMENT FOR STUDENTS AND THEY WOULDN'T HAVE THE CAPACITY TO ENROLL ALL OF THE STUDENTS AND THEN AN ABILITY TO PAY AND SOMETHING WE ARE ABLE TO DETERMINE AND THAT'S WHY AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR WE OFFER DAY CAMPS AND FAMILIES WHO ARE ABLE TO OTHER FAMILIES AND SO WE MOVE TO THE NEXT SLIDE AND WE WANTED TO BRING UP AND SHOW YOU GUYS AGAIN WHAT THE COST IS MONTHLY FOR THIS PROGRAM SO RIGHT NOW HUNDRED 86 DAILY AVERAGE THAT'S THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS IN JANUARY THIS COVERS THE COST PER MONTH 220 STUDENTS AND FOR THAT DAY CARE SERVICE AND IN ADDITION I SET A COUPLE OF SLIDES AGO IS NOT JUST THE CONTRACT COST WE ARE LOOKING AT IT'S A COST TO SUPPORT OUR KIDS IN BRINGING IN AN INDIVIDUALIZED SUPPORT THAT WE HAVE TO PROVIDE FOR OUR STUDENTS AND THAT'S ROUGHLY COSTING US $20,000 A MONTH AND IF WE WERE TO RETURN TO ãAT ANY POINT WE WOULD NEED TO CONCLUDE THE FACILITY USE WOULD HELP TEACHERS AND STUDENTS AND JUST A REMINDER I'VE SAID IT A FEW TIMES THAT RIGHT NOW WE HAVE 220 STUDENTS 235 ENROLLED SO WE COULD EVEN TAKE ANY. [INDISCERNIBLE]

>> SO IF THE BOARD DOES WISH TO EXTEND THE CONTRACT WITH THE CENTER AND TWO MONTHS FROM NOW RIGHT NOW IT'S FEBRUARY AND AS I STATED IN DECEMBER THE CENTER IS A GREAT PARTNER WITH US THEY JUST ASKED THAT THEY HAVE TIME TO PROVIDE THEIR EMPLOYEES NOTICE TO KNOW IF THEY'RE GOING TO BE WORKING OR NOT SO THEY CAN SHIFT AND GO ELSEWHERE AND THAT'S WHY THEY'RE ASKING AND TALKING ABOUT EXTENDING THIS AND IF THE BOARD DOES WANT TO TAKE ACTION TONIGHT WE WOULD ASK THAT THEY WOULD ALSO GRANT AUTHORIZATION TO CONTRACT THE AMENDMENT AND THEN QUESTIONS?

>> SO MY QUESTION IS, TO BE GET NOTICE FROM THE COUNTY THAT WE QUALIFY TO BEGIN OPENING OUR SCHOOLS MARCH 1 AND THE BOARD DETERMINES WE ARE OPENING MARCH 15 WHAT DOES THAT DO FOR THE CONTRACTS WE HAVE SIGNED WITH THEM? > WE HAVE WRITTEN INTO OUR CONTRACTS THAT WE CAN, CAN YOU GUYS STILL SEE ME? THERE YOU ARE.

I LOST YOU ALL. WE HAVE ALREADY WRITTEN INTO OUR CONTRACTS WITH THEM THAT WE CAN ãTHE CONTRACTED ANY POINT AND UNDERSTANDING BECAUSE WE WROTE IT THAT WAY KNOWING THAT AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR WE NEVER KNEW WHEN YOU WERE GOING TO BE ABLE TO COME BACK SO WE HAVE VERY OPEN COMMUNICATION WITH THEM ABOUT WHERE WE ARE AT WHAT OUR PLANS ARE AND TALKING ABOUT MAYBE COMING BACK ON THE 16TH AND WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THAT HERE IT IS AND HAVING A DIALOGUE AND

>> I AM OKAY MOVING FORWARD. WE HAVE A CONTRACT IN JUNE KNOWING THAT THAT IS ON THERE AND WE CAN COMMUNICATE WITH

[01:50:02]

THEM AND THERE COULD BE A TRANSITION BACK BUT I THINK A SENSE OF STABILITY AND THEN I JUST WOULD LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING BACK FROM THE DISTRICT IF WE START TRANSITIONING WHAT HAPPENS TO THE KIDS THAT ARE NOT IN SCHOOL LIKE IF WE DO A AB SCHEDULE, WHAT HAPPENS TO THOSE KIDS AT THE CENTER THEY MAY BE TRANSITIONING BACK BUT WHAT ARE THEY DO ON THE DAYS THEY ARE NOT IN SCHOOL WERE NORMALLY THERE AT THE CAMP

>> QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FROM OTHER BOARD MEMBERS?

>> >> I ALSO SUPPORT.

[INDISCERNIBLE] >> TRUSTEE GRANT, ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS?

>> ON ONE OF THE SLIDES. [INDISCERNIBLE] HAS ASKED US TO CONSIDER THAT WE EXTEND HIS CONTRACT.

[INDISCERNIBLE] >> YOU WOULD HAVE TO GO IF THERE WAS NEW STIMULUS FUNDS UTILIZE THAT GO INTO THE

RESERVES >> TO WE HAVE $6.7 MILLION COMING IN?

>> YOU HAVE SPENT THREE POINT SOMETHING OF IT.

YES. THAT'S YOU ASKED EARLIER TO GET BOLD BUDGET IMPLICATIONS WHEN I SHARED THE TEAM WAS FLYING BY BECAUSE I ASKED THEM TO MOVE ON THE KEY THING WAS NOT TO TALK ABOUT THE FACT YOU HAD ASKED US TO BRING IT BACK IT WAS TO SAY HERE ARE THE IMPLICATIONS FOR FAMILIES HERE'S APPLICATION FOR A BUDGET DOES THAT MEAN WE'RE GOING TO DO A HARD STOP ON THE INTERNET IN JUNE BECAUSE OF THIS ACTION? YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A VERY DIFFICULT NEXT THREE MONTHS TO MAKE DECISIONS ABOUT WHAT YOU LIKE TO PHASE IN WHICH YOU LIKE TO CONTINUE WHAT YOU LIKE TO DO EVEN PART OF OUR SURVEY TONIGHT TO THE FAMILIES SOMETHING I WAS PRETTY SURE I KNEW WHAT THE ANSWER WOULD BE BUT I WANTED TO ASK WOULD THEY BE INTERESTED IN A TAX TARGETING TECHNOLOGY ACCESS IT'S BEING PUT DOWN AS NO. SO YES WE ARE GOING TO GET MORE STIMULUS MONEY FROM THE GOVERNMENT A LOT OF ONE-TIME MONEY THAT WILL BE ABLE TO HELP.

I JUST NEED YOU ALL TO BE AWARE SO THAT WHEN ãIS SITTING DOWN WITH YOU IN MARCH AND APRIL AND WE HAVE BEEN SPENDING A LOT OF MONEY WE HAVE NEVER SPENT MONEY LIKE THIS ON NON-HUMAN RESOURCE ISSUES AND MY TIME HERE AND I UNDERSTAND THESE ARE EXTRAORDINARY TIMES I NEED TO BE ON THE RECORD TO LET YOU KNOW YOU COMBINE HOW MUCH A MONTH? JUST A QUICK VERSION A QUICK ANSWER.

63? THERE'S 300+ THOUSAND 3.6 MILLION ON THAT AND THEN AS I SAID IN MY LETTER I DON'T THINK PPE IS GOING AWAY IN THE FALL. I THINK DOCTOR DASH SAID MAYBE AT THE END OF 2021 MASKS MIGHT AND SO WE WILL NEED TO CONTINUE TO HAVE MORE MONEY AND FOR MASKS AND OTHER SAFETY EQUIPMENT AND MATERIAL WE HAVE NOT GOT A CHANCE TO OUTLINE THAT FOR YOU BECAUSE WE GOT NEW GUIDANCE FOR YOU JANUARY 14 SIX DAYS AGO, THIS IS THE NEW CALIFORNIA WHERE SOMETHING WILL CHANGE MINUTES DAYS HOURS AND WE CAN'T GIVE YOU THE FULL PICTURE BECAUSE WE ARE TRYING TO PROCESS IT OURSELVES SO I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE BOARD KNOWS IS THREE OR $4000 A POP ON JUST THOSE TWO THINGS ALONE AND THAT WE COULD ADD MORE IN WE COME BACK IN PERSON. [INDISCERNIBLE]

[XIV.d. Discuss and Approve the NUSD Governance Handbook]

>> THANK YOU.

>> MOVING ON TO ITEM 14 G DISCUSS AND IMPROVE THE ã

COMMENT ABOUT THE HANDBOOK? >> THIS WAS SOMETHING THAT ã AND I WORKED ON LAST YEAR AND BROUGHT TO THE ãTHE DISCUSSION GROUP I THINK WE MADE A LOT OF HEAVY CHANGES TO IT AND I THIN . [INDISCERNIBLE] MAKE UP MY STAMP OF APPROVAL AND ANY OTHER COMMENTS OR DISCUSSION ABOUT THIS? I JUST WANT TO ADD THE, THAT IF IT NOTES BOARD DEVELOPMENT TRAINING AND I WOULD HOPE THAT THIS BOARD WOULD CONSIDER GOING THROUGH BOARD DEVELOPMENT TRAINING WE HAVE A BRAND-NEW TRUSTEE JUST TO GO THROUGH THE TRAINING AND TO GO THROUGH THE TRAINING AGAIN AND I WANT US TO STRONGLY CONSIDER BOARD EVALUATION AND WE DID IT IN THE PAST WHEN I WAS PRESIDENT TWO YEARS AGO AND WE DID PART OF THE EVALUATION AND WE DID FOLLOW THROUGH SO I WOULD HOPE THAT THIS TIME WE WOULD SPEND THIS YEAR NOT ONLY GOING TO BOARD DEVELOPMENT TRAINING BUT BOARD EVALUATION TRAINING LOOKING FOR A SECOND?

>> SORRY.

>> THAT'S FINE.

>> WE WILL ENSURE EVERY STUDENT WILL MEET AND EXCEED AND I WANT TO THINK ABOUT ADDING TO THE HIGHEST POTENTIAL

>> SO FIRST OF ALL THAT IS CERTAINLY A GOOD IDEA AND WHEN IT COMES TO THE VISION GOALS AND COMMITMENT I THINK THOSE HAVE BEEN APPROVED AND ADOPTED AND AS I SHARED EARLIER I THINK WE HAVE OUTGROWN SOME OF THESE THINGS AND I DON'T WANT TO GIVE STAFF MORE WORK BUT IN THE NEXT CALENDAR YEAR THERE IS VALUE IN TAKING A LOOK AT THESE THINGS SO I WOULD AGREE THAT WE SHOULD LOOK AT THEM IN 2021.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
