[3. REPORTS]

DR. HINOJOSA. THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT. MEMBERS OF THE BOARD.

REPORT ON THREE ITEMS TODAY.

NUMBER ONE, I WANT TO THANK, DR.

LUSK AND HIS TEAM FOR WE HAD A GREAT EVENT TODAY WITH OUR CELEBRATING OUR P-TECH.

AND WE HAD OUR INDUSTRY PARTNERS AND OUR STUDENTS AND THE STUDENTS STOLE THE SHOW LIKE THEY ALWAYS DO. AND IT WAS A GREAT CELEBRATION OF THE JOURNEY THAT WE'VE BEEN ON.

SO I WANT TO THANK ALL THE STAFF COMMUNITY AND ESPECIALLY THE STUDENTS FOR THEIR PARTICIPATION IN THAT GREAT EVENT.

TWICE THIS WEEK, I WAS ON CALLS WITH THE SECRETARY OF EDUCATION.

HE HAS COME ON BOARD AND AS A MEMBER OF THE COUNCIL OF GREAT CITY SCHOOLS.

AND ALSO AASA HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH THE SECRETARY OF ED IN A COUPLE OF THE FORUMS THAT WERE ESTABLISHED.

ONE OF THE ASKED THAT WE ASKED IS THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS APPROVED FOR SIGNIFICANT DOLLARS TO BE USED IN 15 DIFFERENT BUCKETS, THERE IS SOME LEGISLATION IN FRONT OF THE AT THE CAPITOL THAT THOSE RESTRICTIONS BE DOWN TO FIVE BUCKETS WHERE WE COULD USE OUR FEDERAL DOLLARS.

AND THERE'S ONLY TWO STATES THAT ARE IN THAT PREDICAMENT.

IT'S US AND NEW YORK.

SO THE SECRETARY ASSURED THAT THEY WOULD TRY TO HELP US ON THE MAINTENANCE OF EFFORT REQUIREMENTS. I DO EXPECT ALL OF THOSE TO BE LOOSENED UP LATER IN THE SESSION.

BUT I JUST WANT YOU TO BE AWARE.

AND FINALLY, ON THE LOCAL LEGISLATIVE UPDATE, THINGS ARE REALLY PICKING UP IN AUSTIN.

I JUST GOT TODAY THE SENATE EDUCATION COMMITTEE HEARD A BILL ABOUT STATE TAKEOVERS, AS A

[00:05:01]

RESULT OF WHAT HAPPENED IN HOUSTON AND NOW SOME LEGISLATION THAT'S ACTUALLY MORE FAR REACHING.

THAT SAME BILL. THE HOUSE COMPANION HOUSE BILL, 3270 WILL BE HEARD NEXT WEEK.

IT PUBLIC ED, THERE ARE NOW 20 BILLS THAT ARE GOING TO BE HEARD NEXT WEEK, MANY OF THOSE, SOME OF THOSE COULD IMPACT US, SO I WILL BE IN AUSTIN NEXT TUESDAY TO TESTIFY ON ALSO THERE ARE SEVERAL VIRTUAL EDUCATION BILLS.

SO THINGS ARE REALLY PICKING UP AT THE CAPITOL.

IN FACT, THEY HAD TO MOVE OUT OF THE CAPITOL MEETING ROOM TO THE REAGAN BUILDING, WHICH IS STILL ON THE ON THE CAPITOL GROUNDS BECAUSE OF THE VOLUME OF BILLS THAT ARE NOW BEING HEARD IN COMMITTEE.

SO STAY TUNED.

THERE'LL BE A LOT OF ACTION IN THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS AS THIS UNIQUE SESSION WINDS DOWN.

THAT CONCLUDES MY REPORT.

MR. PRESIDENT, BE GLAD TO ENTERTAIN ANY QUESTIONS IF NECESSARY.

THANK YOU, SUPERINTENDENT HINOJOSA, TRUSTEE MICCICHE.

YES, DR.

HINOJOSA, THE TASB BOARD MEETING IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW, AND THERE WAS SOME CONCERN ABOUT THE COVID RELIEF FUNDS THAT HAVE BEEN ALLOCATED AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THEY WOULD BE IN ADDITION TO THE FUNDING THAT IS ALREADY PROVIDED BY THE STATE OR OR WOULD JUST SUPPLANT THAT FUNDING. AND I WAS WONDERING IF YOU HAD ANY INSIGHT AS TO WHETHER THE STATE LEGISLATURE IS IS LIKELY TO BASICALLY TAKE THOSE FUNDS AND USE IT, USE THEM TO FUND OTHER PROJECTS OUTSIDE OF EDUCATION? THERE IS GOOD REASON FOR THAT CONCERN BECAUSE ON SOME OF THE EARLY PACKAGES FROM THE FEDS, SOME OF THOSE FUNDS WERE TAKEN TO HELP THE STATE BUDGET.

AND THEY WERE THEY SUPPLANTED STATE FUNDS.

WHAT WE'RE WORRIED ABOUT, AND WE UNDERSTAND THAT BECAUSE THAT ALLOWED US TO KEEP HOUSE BILL THREE INTACT. BUT NOW.

IT'S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO KEEP THE REST OF THE DOLLARS THAT HAVE BEEN APPROVED BY THE FEDS, AND SO THERE IS REASON TO BE CONCERNED AT THIS TIME.

I DON'T THINK THERE'S REASON TO BE ALARMED.

I THINK THAT EVENTUALLY THAT MONEY WILL MAKE ALL THE WAY THROUGH.

BUT THAT'S THE VERY TOPIC OF MY CONVERSATION WITH THE SECRETARY OF EDUCATION.

SO WE ALL JUST NEED TO BE VIGILANT ON THOSE DOLLARS.

BUT WE DO ANTICIPATE THAT THERE WILL BE A BREAKTHROUGH AT SOMETIME IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.

ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU, TRUSTEE MICCICHE.

OUR AGENDA NOW CALLED FOR THE PUBLIC FORUM SEGMENT OF OUR MEETING.

[4. PUBLIC FORUM]

MS. GRANT, WOULD YOU PLEASE CALL THE SPEAKERS? OUR FIRST SPEAKER IS BRITTANY CONNER.

HELLO, MY NAME IS BRITTNEY CONNER, AND AS A BILINGUAL TEACHER AND PARENT, I HAVE SEEN FIRST HAND HOW CITIZENSHIP OFTEN GATE-KEEPS ACCESS TO EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES, DECISIONS AND RESOURCES.

TIME AND TIME AGAIN, I HAVE COUNSELED PARENTS WHO FEEL TRAPPED DUE TO THEIR IMMIGRATION STATUS, OFTEN AFRAID TO ADVOCATE FOR THEIR STUDENTS EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OR TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY DECISION MAKING PROCESSES.

OUR RESIDENTS ARE INCREDIBLE INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE WIDE A WIDE ARRAY OF TALENTS, SKILLS AND LEADERSHIP THAT WE LOSE OUT ON BY PREVENTING THEM ACCESS TO OUR DISTRICT COMMITTEES.

AS A DISTRICT THAT PRIDES THEMSELVES ON PARTNERING WITH PARENTS AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS, WE WOULD BE REMISS NOT TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO BE INCLUSIVE AND ENSURE EQUITABLE ACCESS TO DECISION MAKING AND DECISION MAKERS.

PLEASE VOTE IN FAVOR OF ALLOWING RESIDENTS TO BE ON DISTRICT COMMITTEES.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS ALEX DEAR BOARD OF TRUSTEES, MY NAME IS ALEX DRIVE, WHICH IS A PART OF DISTRICT THREE AND RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM CONRAD HIGH SCHOOL. I'M HERE TODAY TO VOICE MY SUPPORT OF AGENDA ITEM SEVEN POINT THIRTY EIGHT, THE PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO BOARD POLICY ALLOWING ALL RESIDENTS, REGARDLESS OF THEIR STATUS, NOT JUST US CITIZENS, TO BE A PART OF ADVISORY COMMITTEES.

FOR THE PAST EIGHT YEARS, I'VE HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF RESIDING IN DISTRICT THREE, WHERE I WORK WITH IMMIGRANT STUDENTS AND FAMILIES WHO ARE IN THIS COUNTRY ON A VARIETY OF STATUSES, WHATEVER THEIR STATUS MAY BE.

WE KNOW THAT THESE FAMILIES ARE CONTRIBUTING MEMBERS OF OUR SCHOOLS, WORKFORCES AND COMMUNITIES. AS SUCH, IT'S IMPERATIVE THAT THEIR INPUT AND EXPERIENCES BECOME A STANDARD PART OF DISD COMMITTEES.

ALL STUDENTS AND FAMILIES WITHIN DISD DESERVE TO BE AN INTEGRAL PART IN DECISION MAKING.

ON ANY LEVEL, THE ABILITY FOR ALL RESIDENTS TO HAVE THEIR VOICES HEARD WILL ONLY IMPROVE DISD'S ABILITY TO BE MORE INFORMED ON RELEVANT ISSUES AND THEREFORE BETTER UNDERSTAND HOW TO SERVE EVERYONE WITHIN THE DISTRICT.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, I THINK WE CAN ALL AGREE THAT WE ALL WE WANT ALL RESIDENTS TO BE REFLECTED IN DECISION MAKING.

I BELIEVE THIS AMENDMENT IS A KEY STEP IN ENSURING THAT EVERY DISD STUDENT RECEIVES A QUALITY AND EQUITABLE EXPERIENCE.

I'D LIKE TO THANK TRUSTEE DAN MICCICHE FOR PUTTING FORTH THIS AMENDMENT AND HOPE THAT ALL OTHER TRUSTEES WILL FOLLOW SUIT IN VOTING TO APPROVE THIS IMPORTANT CHANGE.

I YIELD THE REMAINDER OF MY TIME.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS CAMILLA HI, MAKING SURE THAT I CAN BE HEARD, I JUST UNMUTED MYSELF.

MY NAME IS CAMILLA THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO SPEAK TONIGHT.

I AM ADDRESSING SUPERINTENDENT HINOJOSA, THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES.

MY BABY IS ALSO WITH ME TONIGHT, DISD ADMIN AND ANY COMMUNITY MEMBERS WHO ARE LISTENING.

I RESIDE AT FOUR THREE ONE NINE I'M ALSO HERE HAPPY AND VERY EXCITED TO BE JOINED BY OTHER SPEAKERS THAT SPOKE BEFORE ME TO ADVOCATE IN SUPPORT OF AGENDA ITEM SEVEN POINT THREE EIGHT REGARDING THE MAKEUP OF ADVISORY BOARDS AND JUST ENSURING THAT CITIZENSHIP STATUS ISN'T AN ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENT FOR APPOINTMENTS TO THESE BOARDS.

I JUST WANT TO THANK THE BOARD.

DEFINITELY TRUSTEE DAN MICCICHE YOU BROUGHT THIS TO THE ATTENTION OF OTHER BOARD MEMBERS, BUT THANKING EVERYBODY WHO ALREADY INDICATED SUPPORT FROM YOUR EARLIER MEETING THIS MONTH AT THE BRIEFING, IT REALLY MEANS A LOT TO HAVE LEADERSHIP LIKE YOU AT THE TABLE THAT'S OPENING THIS DOOR FOR GREATER CIVIC PARTICIPATION IN OUR SCHOOLS.

AND IT ALSO IS INCREDIBLY INSPIRING JUST TO HEAR FROM OTHER COMMUNITY MEMBERS EARLIER THIS MONTH AT THAT BRIEFING TO LEARN WHAT THAT CHANGE COULD MEAN FOR THEM AS AN INDIVIDUAL OR FOR THE COMMUNITY THAT THEY REPRESENT.

AND THEN THE LAST THING I WANTED TO SAY IS JUST RESEARCH SHOWS THAT DIVERSITY OF PERSPECTIVE CAN ONLY ADD STRENGTH TO THE OUTCOME OF WHATEVER THAT SET GOAL IS.

AND I THINK THAT THIS CHANGE IS GOING TO MAKE DISD A STRONGER PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM FOR STUDENTS, FOR FAMILIES.

I THINK IT WILL ACCELERATE STUDENT SUCCESS BECAUSE THE FAMILIES THAT THINK THAT THAT THE DISTRICT DOESN'T CARE TO HEAR THEIR OPINION WILL NOW KNOW THAT, HEY, MAYBE, MAYBE I AM

[00:25:06]

INVITED TO THE TABLE. MAYBE MY VOICE DOES MATTER.

AND THAT'LL JUST LEAD TO MORE SUCCESS FOR THEIR STUDENTS, THE STUDENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES. SO THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERING SUPPORT FOR THIS ITEM.

I APPRECIATE YOUR TIME TONIGHT.

THANK YOU. OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS ERIC MATA.

YES, THANK YOU. SUPERINTENDENT HINOJOSA, TRUSTEES.

MY NAME IS ERIC MATA, RESIDE IN 1500 NORTH AND A MEMBER OF THE TEXAS ORGANIZING PROJECT, EDUCATION JUSTICE CAMPAIGN.

AS AN ORGANIZATION THAT FOR YEARS HAS ENGAGED WITH PARENTS ACROSS DISD ON THESE ISSUES OF EDUCATION, EQUITY AND PARTICIPATION IN THEIR CHILDREN'S SCHOOLS.

WE FULLY SUPPORT THIS AMENDMENT AND WE BELIEVE ALL RESIDENTS, ESPECIALLY PARENTS, STUDENTS AND SCHOOL STAFF, NO MATTER THEIR IMMIGRATION STATUS, SHOULD BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN AN OFFICIAL CAPACITY TO HAVE THEIR VOICES HEARD ON DECISION MAKING COMMITTEES BECAUSE THEY ARE MOSTLY DIRECTLY IMPACTED BY THESE DECISIONS MADE.

WE APPRECIATE YOUR ATTENTION TO THIS MATTER.

I LOOK FORWARD TO THE SWIFT PASSAGE OF THIS AMENDMENT.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. THANK YOU.

OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS JULIO ACOSTA.

HI, MY NAME IS JULIO ACOSTA, I'LL SPEAK SLOWER THAN USUAL FOR INTERPRETERS TO BE ABLE TO INTERPRET WELL, I LIVE IN CARROLLTON, BUT I DO A LOT OF MY WORK IN DALLAS.

I'M A VOLUNTEER WITH THE COALITION FOR A STRONG, INCLUSIVE DALLAS, OUR REVOLUTION,I AM IN SUPPORT OF ALLOWING PEOPLE TO SERVE ON BOARDS REGARDLESS OF LEGAL STATUS.

WE HAVE MANY RESIDENTS THAT HAVE INCREDIBLE LIFE EXPERIENCES, IDEAS AND SKILLS THAT WE COULD BE UTILIZING.

EVERYONE PAYS TAXES ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.

WE SHOULD NOT HAVE TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION.

JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED.

AND I HOPE THAT Y'ALL MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION TODAY.

I YIELD THE REST OF MY TIME.

THANK YOU. OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS ANGELA HELLO AND GOOD EVENING, TRUSTEE.

DR. HINOJOSA, DISD ADMIN AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS.

MY NAME IS ANGELA I AM A NATIVE OF DALLAS AND A PRODUCT OF THE DALLAS ISD.

I'M A FORMER DISD EDUCATOR WHERE I HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF WORKING IN THE WEST DALLAS COMMUNITY. I AM A PARENT TO A FUTURE DISD STUDENT AND AN ADVOCATE FOR THE STUDENTS AND FAMILIES OF OUR COMMUNITY.

I AM ALSO THE PROUD DAUGHTER OF TWO IMMIGRANT PARENTS.

I COME TO YOU TODAY IN SUPPORT OF APPROVING AGENDA ITEM SEVEN POINT THREE EIGHT AND CREATING A MORE INCLUSIVE DALLAS.

AS A FORMER EDUCATOR, I HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF WORKING WITH ALL TYPES OF FAMILIES, AND AS HAS BEEN SHARED, IT'S SO IMPORTANT TO CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR THEIR VOICES TO BE ELEVATED. AND APPROVING THIS AGENDA ITEM WOULD ACTUALLY CREATE MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR PARENTS AND FAMILIES AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS AND NEIGHBORS WHO REALLY DO WANT TO HAVE A VOICE IN OUR DECISION MAKING PROCESS TO REALLY BE A PART OF THIS THIS WORK THAT DALLAS ISD IS MAKING.

IMMIGRATION STATUS SHOULD NOT BE ANOTHER BARRIER FOR FAMILIES AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS WHO WANT TO STAY ENGAGED AND BE A PART OF THIS WORK.

AND I HOPE THAT YOU WILL VOTE TO SET AN EXAMPLE, NOT JUST FOR OUR STUDENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES, BUT FOR OUR CITY AND THE COUNTRY, VOTE TO ALLOW RESIDENTS WHO ARE NOT CITIZENS TO SERVE ON ADVISORY COMMITTEES.

AND LET'S CREATE A MORE INCLUSIVE DALLAS.

THANK YOU. AND I YIELD THE REST OF MY TIME.

THANK YOU. OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS RAMIRO LUNA.

HI. GOOD AFTERNOON. BOARD MEMBERS AND FELLOW SPEAKERS VERY HAPPY TO BE HERE TODAY TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF AGENDA ITEM SEVEN POINT THREE EIGHT, ALLOWING RESIDENTS TO PARTICIPATE IN BOARDS AND COMMITTEES.

I'M A PROUD PRODUCT OF DALLAS INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS.

I ATTENDED ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL IN DISD.

AND TODAY, AS A DREAMER, I AM ACTUALLY CURRENTLY BARRED FROM PARTICIPATING IN THE SET FORTH IN COMMITTEES THAT WE SPEAK OF TODAY, AND THERE'S NOT MUCH THAT I CAN SAY THAT HASN'T BEEN SAID SO ELOQUENTLY BY OUR PREVIOUS SPEAKERS, BUT I DO WANT TO SAY THIS, THAT AS WE OPEN THE DOORS FOR PARENTS AND PREVIOUS OR PASSED STUDENT BODY MEMBERS WHO WERE STUDENTS AT THE DISD AND ARE STILL BARRED IS ALLOWING US TO FEEL TO FEEL TRULY PART OF.

[00:30:02]

A SYSTEM THAT WE CONSIDER OUR OWN, WE HAVE A LOT OF STUDENTS RIGHT NOW WHOSE PARENTS ARE CURRENTLY BARRED, AND I KNOW AS A STUDENT WHOSE FAMILY MEMBERS WOULD HAVE LOVED TO BE PARTICIPATING BOARDS AND COMMITTEES.

I NEVER REALLY FULLY FELT PART OF THE SYSTEM, AND I THINK IT'S LONG OVERDUE THAT WE REALLY DO WELCOME SUCH A SIGNIFICANT PART OF THE STUDENT BODY WHOSE PARENTS ARE IMMIGRANTS OR WHO THEM, WHO THEY THEMSELVES ARE IMMIGRANTS.

AND AGAIN, THIS WOULD ONLY STRENGTHEN THE THE IDEAS AND THE DECISIONS THAT ARE BEING MADE BY THESE COMMITTEES.

AND WITH THAT I END MY TIME. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS MARIA HERNANDEZ.

MARIA HERNANDEZ.

PAULA, HELLO.

THANK YOU. OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS PATRICIA VEGA.

AND I AM FROM DISTRICT EIGHT.

I AM HERE TO SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY THAT MIGHT NOT BE HERE LITERALLY.

AND AS A MOTHER WITH A STUDENT WITH SPECIAL NEEDS WE WOULD LIKE MORE SUPPORT FOR THESE STUDENTS.

MOTHER GRAIN OF SALT FROM MY EXPERIENCE AS A MOTHER CHANGE, A POSITIVE CHANGE IN THE COMMUNITY.

ALSO HELP MAKE CHANGES, THANK YOU. OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS SUSANNA GARCIA.

THANK YOU, OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS DAVID STEINFINK.

[00:35:06]

YES, THANK YOU. MY NAME IS DAVID STEINFINK, AND MY SON ATTENDS JERRY JUNKINS ELEMENTARY IN CARROLLTON, TEXAS ON THURSDAY, MARCH THE 4TH, I BECAME AWARE.

AFTER THE FACT OF AN INCIDENT THAT OCCURRED WITH MY SON, SUBSTITUTE TEACHER, IN WHICH SHE FORCEFULLY GRABBED HIM BY THE ARM AND THEN DRAGGED HIM OUT OF THE CLASSROOM BY HIS FEET FOR SOME BEHAVIOR, THAT WAS NOT WHAT HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING.

SHE THEN IMMEDIATELY REPORTED THE INCIDENT TO THE PRINCIPAL AND THE SCHOOL COUNSELOR, WHO THEN TOLD HER TO, QUOTE, NOT WORRY ABOUT IT.

THE FOLLOWING MONDAY, ANOTHER STUDENT INFORMED HIS MOTHER OF THE INCIDENT.

AND THEN THE NEXT DAY, TUESDAY, THE MOTHER WENT TO THE SCHOOL TO SPEAK TO THE PRINCIPAL ABOUT WHAT HAD HAPPENED, BUT HE REFUSED TO SPEAK WITH HER BECAUSE SHE WAS NOT THE PARENT OF THE CHILD. AFTER THE MOTHER LEFT THE SCHOOL, THE PRINCIPAL THEN WENT TO THE WENT TO THE CLASSROOM AND QUESTIONED THE SUBSTITUTE MS. WE FOUND OUT WEDNESDAY THE 11TH.

WE FOUND OUT THE NEXT DAY, WEDNESDAY THE 10TH, ONLY BECAUSE IT CAME UP IN CONVERSATION.

EITHER MS. AND THE REST OF THE ADMINISTRATION ARE LYING IN HOW THEY HANDLED IT, WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN INFORMED THURSDAY THE 4TH WHEN IT HAPPENED, TUESDAY THE 9TH WHEN THE SCHOOL SUPPOSEDLY FOUND OUT.

MS. KENNEDY, CRYING TUESDAY EVENING AFTER SHE WAS TERMINATED WHEN SHE HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN INFORMED THAT EVERYTHING WOULD BE OK.

MR. SPURLOCK TRIED TO INFORM ME FRIDAY THE 12TH AFTER AN EMAIL HAD BEEN SENT TO THE ADMINISTRATION AND THE DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENT ABOUT THIS INCIDENT.

I ALSO FILED A COMPLAINT WITH THE ETHICS OFFICE AT THE DISD.

I AM NOT SATISFIED WITH THE RECOLLECTION OF EVENTS STRICTLY FROM PRINCIPAL SPURLOCK.

I WANT TO HEAR FROM ALL INVOLVED, AND I APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT THE TEACHER WAS LET GO FROM HER POSITION. BUT THIS WAS A CRIMINAL ACT OF ABUSE AND ASSAULT AGAINST MY CHILD.

I DO NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH PRINCIPAL SPURLOCK'S HANDLING OF THE INCIDENT.

I WANT THIS MATTER INVESTIGATED, AND IF THE DISTRICT OR THE BOARD WILL NOT HELP ME, THEN I HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO SEEK HELP ELSEWHERE, POSSIBLY FROM THE CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES.

THE CARROLLTON POLICE DEPARTMENT OR PERHAPS THE LOCAL MEDIA.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS JESUS MENDOZA.

SO NOW WE CAN SIT AND LISTEN TO EVERYBODY ELSE OR.

I DID WHAT I DID ALL I COULD DO.

AND IT BECOMES A MATTER OF PUBLIC RECORD NOW.

YEAH, BECAUSE THEY HAVE A RECORD OF IT.

JESUS MENDOZA.

ROBERT HELLO, THIS IS JESUS MENDOZA, SOMEHOW I WAS MUTED.

YOU HAVE THREE MINUTES TO SPEAK.

OK, YES, MY NAME IS JESUS MENDOZA AND MY TELEPHONE NUMBER IS 956 583 712.

I HAVE BEEN HOMEBOUND FOR MORE THAN NINE YEARS WITH A LIFE THREATENING ELECTRO SENSITIVITY WHICH IS COARSE AND AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE TO THE SAME WIRELESS MICROWAVE RADIATION REACHING IN CHILDREN AND TEACHERS AT SCHOOL.

MY PHYSICAL MEDICAL CONDITION IN THE CITY'S ABILITY.

IT IS ESTIMATED THAT WE DON'T KNOW IN MORE THAN 50 PERCENT OF THE POPULATION IS ALREADY SUFFERING SYMPTOMS OF DIRECTOR OF THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION ARE SUFFERING FROM ELECTRO SENSITIVITY.

PLEASE SEE WEARETHEEVIDENCE.ORG, DESPITE MOST DOCTORS ARE IN THE DARK OR IN DENIAL AND CONTINUE MISDIAGNOSING AND MISTREATING WITH HARMFUL DRUGS AND INVASIVE PROCEDURES, SYMPTOMS THAT DISAPPEAR WITH JUST REDUCING EXPOSURE TO MICRO RADIATION.

IT IS A FACT THAT EXPOSURE TO RADIATION ABOVE THE FEDERAL SAFETY LIMITS CAUSES HARM, EVEN TO ADULTS. A LAW FIRM FILED A LAWSUIT WITH EVIDENCE OF HOW THE CELL PHONES USED BY OUR

[8.02 Consider and Take Possible Action to Approve the Agreement Between City of Dallas, Dallas College and Dallas Independent School District for the Implementation of P-TECH (No Financial Impact) (Consent Item 7.13, Pulled by Trustees Joyce Foreman and Dan Micciche)]

NOW ON THE ITEMS PULLED FOR SEPARATE VOTE.

8.02 APPROVE THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN CITY OF DALLAS, DALLAS COLLEGE AND DISD FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF P-TECH.

NO FINANCIAL IMPACT.

CONSENT ITEM SEVEN POINT ONE THREE PULLED BY TRUSTEE FOREMAN AND MICCICHE.

DO I HAVE A MOTION.

MOVE TO APPROVE. SECOND.

MOTION BY TRUSTEE FLORES. SECOND BY MARSHALL.

TRUSTEES IS THERE DISCUSSION? YES. TRUSTEE FOREMAN . HELLO BRIAN.

GOOD EVENING TRUSTEE FOREMAN. THANK YOU FOR SUPPLYING ME WITH THE INFORMATION THAT I ASKED FOR, BUT THERE WAS A LITTLE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND I'M STILL STRUGGLING WITH THE OVERALL P-TECH CONCEPT.

IN REGARDS TO THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF DEGREES THAT OUR STUDENTS ARE RECEIVING.

IN SOME OF THE P-TECHS, IT'S THE NORMAL AA DEGREE.

AND IN SOME, IT'S THE AAS DEGREE, WHICH.

THE AAS DEGREE, ACTUALLY, SOME OF THOSE CREDITS DO NOT TRANSFER TO OTHER COLLEGES.

AND I'M WONDERING BECAUSE IT'S ABOUT 42 OF THEM.

SO I'M WONDERING WHEN DO WE EXPLAIN THAT TO PARENTS AND STUDENTS THAT THOSE HOURS DO NOT TRANSFER? THANK YOU FOR THE QUESTION. TRUSTEE FOREMAN.

FOR OUR ASSOCIATE APPLIED SCIENCE, THE AAS THAT YOU WERE REFERRING TO, WHEN WE ROLLED OUT OUR FIRST COHORT OF EIGHT SCHOOLS, WE DID HAVE AAS AS PART OF EACH OF THE SCHOOL'S PATHWAYS BECAUSE THEY'RE EMBEDDED IN TECHNICAL SKILLS AND SOME OF THAT STILL REMAINS THE SAME. WE ALSO HAVE OFFERED PATHWAYS OF EITHER ASSOCIATE OF ARTS OR ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE AT ALL OF OUR P-TECHS AND MOVING TOWARDS THAT IN ALL OF OUR P-TECH SCHOOLS AT THIS POINT,

[00:50:04]

BASED UPON SOME FEEDBACK, I WILL TELL YOU THAT ALSO FOR THE AAS, THOSE CREDITS DO TRANSFER. IN ADDITION, THEY ALSO THERE ARE TRANSFER PATHWAYS.

SO THE NORTH TEXAS COMMUNITY COLLEGE CONSORTIUM HAS A WEBSITE.

AND ON THE WEBSITE, YOU CAN SEE FOR EACH OF THE RESPECTIVE PATHWAYS THAT WE HAVE IN THE AAS SPACE, THE FOUR YEAR COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY THAT STUDENTS CAN TRANSFER TO, TO USE TO UTILIZE ARE THOSE SPECIFIC FOUR YEAR COLLEGES, BECAUSE THE ONE THAT I'M REFERRING TO IS MIDWESTERN. WHERE SOME CRITICS DID NOT TRANSFER, WHERE THE STUDENT ACTUALLY BELIEVED THEY WERE GOING TO BE A JUNIOR AND ENDED UP A FRESHMAN.

YEAH, I WOULD THINK THAT THAT'S A RARE INSTANCE.

BUT YOU'RE CORRECT. SO IT WILL BE THERE WILL BE, THERE WILL BE SPECIFIC PATHWAYS THAT TRANSFER TO SPECIFIC UNIVERSITIES.

BUT ALL IN ALL, THE CREDITS DO TRANSFER.

I THINK THE OTHER THING TO CONSIDER IS IF A STUDENT, LET'S SAY, STUDIES CRIMINAL JUSTICE IN FOR A P-TECH PATHWAY, THEN DECIDES TO GO INTO A DIFFERENT MAJOR FOUR YEAR UNIVERSITY, OBVIOUSLY NOT ALL WILL TRANSFER BECAUSE THOSE COURSES, SOME OF THOSE COURSES ARE EMBEDDED SPECIFICALLY IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE.

WHILE SOME OF THOSE MIGHT BE ABLE TO BE USED ELECTIVES, SOME OF THEM MAY NOT BE SO IT BECOMES A FACTOR OF STUDENTS, MAKE A DECISION CHANGE PAST HIGH SCHOOL, THEN IT COULD INFLUENCE THE AMOUNT OF CREDITS THAT ARE ABLE TO BE USED.

SO I GUESS THAT'S STILL MY CONCERN REMAINS THAT WE SHOULD BE EXPLAINING THIS TO PARENTS AND STUDENTS. SOME STUDENTS LIKE JUST WANT THE JUNIOR COLLEGE DEGREE.

BUT THE PROBLEM THAT I HAVE IS THAT WHEN THEY WANT TO GO ON TO A FOUR YEAR COLLEGE AND THEY DON'T HAVE THE INFORMATION, FOR INSTANCE, SOME OF OUR P-TECHS, THEY ACTUALLY RECEIVE THE AS AND AA DEGREE IN SOME OF OUR P-TECH.

SO THEY THEY HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO GO ON.

AND SOME OF THOSE STUDENTS MIGHT WANT TO GO TO ONE OF THOSE P-TECHS IF THEY THINK THEY'RE GOING ON TO A FOUR YEAR COLLEGE.

SO I'M JUST.

CONCERNED THAT WE'RE NOT GIVING OUT ENOUGH INFORMATION, BECAUSE EVEN THE WAY YOU EXPLAINED IT, BRIAN, IS A LITTLE BIT CONVOLUTED.

AND SO I THINK WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT A WAY, DR.

HINOJOSA TO BE ABLE TO EXPLAIN THIS INFORMATION TO OUR STUDENTS AND PARENTS SO THAT THEY GET A GOOD UNDERSTANDING OF EXACTLY WHAT WE'RE DOING.

WE DO THINK, OBVIOUSLY, YOU'RE RIGHT, THE ADVISING IS REALLY IMPORTANT, PARTICULARLY AT THE EIGHTH GRADE, SO THAT WE CAN MAKE SURE PARENTS AND STUDENTS ARE CLEAR.

BUT LET ME LET DR. ROGERS HERE SAY A FEW WORDS ABOUT IT AS WELL.

SHE'S HERE WITH US ON ZOOM.

DR. ROGERS, CAN YOU WEIGH IN ANY THOUGHTS TO THAT? YES, GOOD EVENING.

SO PRESIDENT HENRY, BOARD TRUSTEES AND SUPERINTENDENT HINOJOSA.

TRUSTEE FOREMAN, WE ARE WORKING WITH DALLAS COLLEGE TO REALIGN ALL OF OUR PATHWAYS.

WE ARE WORKING TO ENSURE THAT WE ARE MAKING SURE THAT OUR STUDENTS ARE WELL INFORMED ABOUT THE TRANSFERABILITY.

OF THEIR CREDIT. AND AS OUR STUDENTS ARE BECOMING MORE CONFIDENT THAT THEY WANT TO GO TO FOUR YEAR COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES, WE ARE ACTUALLY WORKING TO MOVE TOWARD ALL OF OUR PROGRAMS, OFFERING ONLY THE ASSOCIATES OF ARTS AND ASSOCIATES OF SCIENCE WITH AN EMBEDDED CERTIFICATE. SO THEY STILL HAVE THE CERTIFICATE.

BUT WE ARE WORKING TO MOVE AWAY FROM THE AASS MORE OF OUR STUDENTS ARE WANTING TO TRANSFER AND WOULD LIKE MORE FLEXIBILITY.

BUT THERE ARE TRANSFER OPTIONS FOR ALL PATHWAYS.

SO, DR.

ROGERS, YOU SAY WE'RE WORKING TOWARD IT.

WHEN ARE WE GOING TO GET THERE? WE ARE ROLLING, WE GROW MORE OUT, AND WE PLAN TO BE FULLY ROLLED OUT AT THE BEGINNING OF NOT THE NEXT SCHOOL YEAR BUT THE FOLLOWING SCHOOL YEAR, BUT EVERY CAMPUS STARTING IN THE FALL WILL HAVE THE OPTION FOR AN AA AND AS PATHWAY IN ADDITION TO THE AAS.

AND AND SO WE CURRENTLY HAVE ABOUT EIGHT THOUSAND STUDENTS IN THE PROGRAM.

SO SOME OF THOSE STUDENTS WILL BE ADVERSELY AFFECTED AS TO WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT RIGHT NOW. AND SO WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IS, BRIAN, WHAT I'D LIKE TO SEE IS, IS THAT SOME COMMUNICATION WITH THOSE STUDENTS SO THEY GET A GOOD UNDERSTANDING.

AGAIN, I'M NOT SAYING THAT IT'S BAD.

WHAT I'M SAYING IS PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW WHAT THEIR CHOICES ARE AND WE NEED TO HAVE A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING WITH THE PARENTS AND STUDENTS EXACTLY WHERE THAT'S GOING TO GO.

AND IF THERE ARE COLLEGES THAT.

EXCUSE ME ONE SECOND, DR.

ROGERS, IF THERE ARE COLLEGES THAT ACTUALLY WILL ACCEPT THEM, THEY NEED TO HAVE THAT

[00:55:03]

INFORMATION AT HAND ALSO.

SO THERE'S LIKE THE STUDENT THAT I TALKED ABOUT, DON'T GET IN THAT KIND OF A SITUATION.

WE WE CAN FIX THIS.

YES, MA'AM COLLEGES THAT ACCEPT THE AAS, IT WAS A SPECIFIC COLLEGE FAIR FOR THOSE STUDENTS AND THEIR PARENTS. WE HELD IT UP AT MOUNTAINVIEW TO MAKE THAT VERY POINT.

IT WAS AN EVENING EVENT JUST FOR THOSE STUDENTS WITH THOSE COLLEGES REGARDING THEIR DEGREE AND THE TRANSFER.

BUT WE AGREE WE'LL WORK ON GETTING GETTING BETTER AT THAT AND COMMUNICATING MORE EFFECTIVELY BECAUSE WE DO WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR STUDENTS KNOW EXACTLY WHAT LIES BEFORE THEM IS A LONG TERM OPPORTUNITY.

THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU.

TRUSTEE MICCICHE. YEAH, I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT I'M PROUD OF THE P-TECH PROGRAM AND ESPECIALLY HERE WHERE WE ARE COOPERATING WITH WITH THE CITY OF DALLAS AND I HOPE WE'LL CONTINUE TO DO THAT AND AND CONTINUE TO EXPAND THE PROGRAM.

THANK YOU. AND TRUSTEE MICCICHE.

TRUSTEES IF THERE'S NOT ANY MORE DISCUSSION, WILL YOU PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTES, TRUSTEE GARCIA WILL YOU VOTE VERBALLY.

GARCIA VOTES YES.

THE MOTION PASSES NINE ZERO.

THANK YOU, TRUSTEES. YOU APPROVED THE MOTION, YOU ADOPTED THE MOTION APPROVING THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY OF DALLAS, DALLAS COLLEGE AND DISD FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF P-TECH.

WE'RE NOW ON ITEM 8.03, AMEND BOARD FILE NUMBER 60344 FOR THE DISTRICT'S FIBEROPTIC WIDE

THREE AUGMENT THE EXISTING AGREEMENTS TO ACCOMMODATE FUTURE NETWORK ADDS, MOVES, CHANGES IN OUR CAPACITY INCREASES INCREASE NOT TO EXCEED NINE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS FORTY SEVEN MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND AGGREGATE TO JUNE 30 2023.

NOT INCLUDING ADDITIONAL OR NO OPERATIONAL OPERATING AND BOND SPECIAL REVENUE FUNDS, CONSENT ITEM SEVEN POINT ONE FIVE PULLED BY TRUSTEE FOREMAN AND MICCICHE, DO I HAVE A MOTION. MOVE TO APPROVE.

SECOND MOTION BY TRUSTEE FLORES, SECOND BY TRUSTEE MARSHALL.

TRUSTEES IS THERE DISCUSSION? YES.

TRUSTEE FOREMAN YOU HAVE THE FLOOR . GOOD EVENING PRESIDENT HENRY AND TRUSTEES, MR. SUPERINTENDENT. SO I HAVE A QUESTION, TRUSTEE FOREMAN.

THE WHAT I GOT YOUR RESPONSE AND WHAT IS A LITTLE BIT CONVOLUTED FOR ME IS, IS THAT YOU TALKED ABOUT THE REASON THE RATIFICATION IS BECAUSE THE 2011 BOARD DOCUMENT AUTHORIZING FIBEROPTIC NETWORK DID NOT SPECIFY BOND FUNDS AND PROCEEDED TO 2015 BOND.

SO IF IT DIDN'T SPECIFY BOND FUNDS, THEN WHY DID WE GO BACK AND USE BOND FUNDS? YES, MA'AM, I DON'T THINK WE REALIZED THAT THE 2011 BOARD DOCUMENT DID NOT SPECIFY BOND FUNDS, SO WE WERE SPENDING MONEY ON PROJECTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE BOND CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS, NEW CAMPUSES, RENOVATIONS, THOSE TYPES OF PROJECTS.

AND IT WAS CALLED TO OUR ATTENTION FAIRLY RECENTLY THAT THE ORIGINAL BOARD DOCUMENT DID NOT SPECIFY THE BOND FUNDS, AND THAT'S WHERE WE CAUGHT IT AND BROUGHT IT FORWARD AS A RATIFICATION ITEM. SO THIS SPECIFICALLY SPEAKS TO FIBER OPTICS, NOT DOING WORK ON SCHOOLS FOR TECHNOLOGY.

CORRECT. SO I MISSED YOUR RESPONSE.

DID WE DO FIBER OPTICS AT ALL THESE SCHOOLS? YES, MA'AM. DO YOU HAPPEN TO KNOW THE SCHOOLS? YES, MA'AM, THERE'S A.

THERE IS A LIST OF THE SCHOOLS ON THE SECOND PAGE OF THE BOARD DOCUMENT.

I THINK THERE'S ABOUT ROUGHLY 20 PROJECTS OR SO.

AND YOU CAN SEE ALL OF THE LOCATIONS IN THE SCHOOLS, BUT THEY ARE ALL FOR FIBEROPTIC RELATED PROJECTS AT THOSE SCHOOLS.

DATA CENTER FACILITIES.

AND I WOULD. NINETY FOUR HUNDRED.

I WOULD IMAGINE THE BULK OF THAT WENT TO THE ADMINISTRATIVE FACILITY.

[01:00:01]

NO, MA'AM, THE AMOUNTS ARE THE AMOUNTS ARE SPECIFIED ON THAT PAGE AS WELL.

I'LL LOOK AT THEM. I JUST DR.

HINOJOSA I HAVE A REAL PROBLEM WHEN WE GO BACK TO A 2011 DOCUMENT AND WE SPEND THE MONEY IN 2020.

I JUST HAVE A REAL PROBLEM WITH THAT.

THAT THAT JUST THAT'S NOT EVEN REASONABLE.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE FOREMAN.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? NOT HEARING ANY TRUSTEE, WILL YOU PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTES.

TRUSTEE GARCIA WILL YOU VOTE VERBALLY.

GARCIA VOTES YES.

TRUSTEE JOHNSON. THE MOTION PASSES EIGHT VOTING YES AND ONE VOTING NO. THANK YOU, TRUSTEES.

GOOD AFTERNOON, GENTLEMEN.

I'M JUST CURIOUS WHY THIS PARTICULAR PROCUREMENT IS FIVE MILLION DOLLARS MORE THAN THE LAST PROCUREMENT, IS IT THE LENGTH OF TIME? ON EIGHT POINT FOUR? WE'RE AT WE'RE REQUESTING THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND FOR FIVE MONTHS.

WE'RE ON FOUR OK.

SO THIS IS A COOPERATIVE AGREEMENT, DO WE KNOW WHICH ONE? WHICH COOPERATIVE AGREEMENT WE'RE WORKING FROM? YES, MA'AM, THAT'S THE BUY BOARD.

OK, SO ONE OF THE THINGS I'VE NOTICED ON THE NEW LANGUAGE, DURING FOR YOUR COOPERATIVE AGREEMENTS, YOU DON'T LIST WHO THE PURCHASING IS COMING FROM, NOT ON THE THESE DOCUMENTS.

OK. AM I WRONG? SOMETIMES. IT'S NOT ON THE FRONT PAGE, BUT IT IS ON THE DETAILED INFORMATION SHEET, IT SAYS BY A BOARD AWARDED VENDORS.

YES. SO THAT DETAIL, IF IT COULD BE ON THE.

THE MAIN SHEET. THE MAIN SHEET.

YES, MA'AM. SO THERE IS KNOWLEDGE OF WHO ACTUALLY PROCURING FOR.

I WOULD APPRECIATE THAT.

THANK YOU. AND THAT'S ON ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE COOPERATIVE AGREEMENTS TOO, SAME SAME SITUATION. THAT'S ALL 4 AND 05.

[8.08 Consider and Take Possible Action to Approve Amendment of Board Policy BDF (LOCAL) Board Internal Organization - Citizen Advisory Committees (Single Read, Sponsored by Trustee Dan Micciche and Dr. Pamela Lear, Chief of Staff) (Consent Item 7.38, Pulled - New Agenda Item)]

[01:05:04]

APPROVE AMENDMENT OF BOARD POLICY BDF LOCAL BOARD INTERNAL ORGANIZATIONS, CITIZEN ADVISORY COMMITTEE SINGLE READ SPONSORED BY TRUSTEE MICCICHEM DR.

PAMELA LEAR CHIEF OF STAFF.

CONSENT ITEM 7.38 PULLED.

IT'S A NEW AGENDA ITEM, DO I HAVE A MOTION.

MOVE TO APPROVE. SECOND.

MOTION BY TRUSTEE FLORES, SECOND BY TRUSTEE MARSHALL.

TRUSTEES IS THERE A DISCUSSION? TRUSTEE MICCICHE.

YES, FIRST. I'D LIKE TO THANK TRUSTEE MACKEY FOR RECOMMENDING THAT WE MOVE THIS FORWARD ON THE FIRST READ. AND I THINK THAT THAT THAT CERTAINLY REPRESENTS THE CONSENSUS OF THIS BOARD.

AS AS I SAID IN THE BOARD BRIEFING, THAT THIS PROPOSED CHANGE IS CONSISTENT WITH OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION.

OUR CURRENT POLICY CATEGORICALLY DENIES A NONCITIZEN FROM BEING APPOINTED TO AN ADVISORY COMMITTEE. AND THIS IS REALLY INCONSISTENT WITH THE FACT THAT THESE POSITIONS ARE NONPAYING VOLUNTEER POSITIONS THAT YOU HAVE TO BE APPOINTED TO BY A TRUSTEE.

COMPARE THAT TO THE FACT THAT NON-CITIZENS CAN BE TEACHERS IN OUR DISTRICT, WORK AND SUPPORT STAFF IN OUR DISTRICT.

THEY CAN EVEN SERVE IN THE ARMY.

AND I THINK I SHOULD POINT OUT THAT THESE THESE ADVISORY COMMITTEES ARE JUST THAT ADVISORY.

IT IS THE ELECTED OFFICIALS AND THE BOARD AS A WHOLE THAT MAKE THE FINAL DECISIONS WITH THE INPUT OF THE ADVISORY COMMITTEES.

AND, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE COMMITTEES THAT ADVISE US ON THE BOND ON SPECIAL ED, ON ATTENDANCE BOUNDARY, DISCIPLINE POLICY, RACIAL EQUITY.

WE MAY HAVE ONE OR MORE COMMITTEES ON TAG, ON REDISTRICTING, ON MAGNET SCHOOL ADMISSIONS.

AND I THINK THIS SENDS A GOOD, A GOOD MESSAGE OF INCLUSION THAT WITH A DISTRICT AND IN A CITY WHERE WE HAVE NO ONE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT THE PERCENTAGE OF OF THE POPULATION IS.

BUT SOMEWHERE OVER TWENTY FIVE PERCENT OF THE RESIDENTS IN DALLAS AND IN DISD ARE ESTIMATED TO BE NONCITIZENS.

AND I THINK THIS SENDS A SENDS A GOOD MESSAGE OF INCLUSION.

AND I THINK THIS IS A POLICY THAT WE NEED TO CLEAN UP.

AND I WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE MICCICHE, TRUSTEE FOREMAN.

DAN, DO YOU KNOW EXACTLY HOW MANY COMMITTEES WE WERE TALKING ABOUT? HOW MANY COMMITTEES DO WE CURRENTLY APPOINT PEOPLE TO? WELL, I JUST ENUMERATED ABOUT SEVEN OR EIGHT OF THEM, AND.

I'M SORRY I DIDN'T HEAR YOU.

I SAID I JUST ENUMERATED ABOUT SEVEN OR EIGHT OF THEM, BUT I DON'T HAVE THE COMPREHENSIVE LIST. I'M SURE WE COULD ASK BOARD SERVICES.

SEVEN OR EIGHT. DID YOU ENUMERATE? BECAUSE I DIDN'T. I'M SORRY. I DIDN'T HEAR YOU, I WAS DOING SOMETHING.

OK, WELL, I SAID WE HAVE A COMMITTEE, A BOND ADVISORY COMMITTEE, WE HAVE A SPECIAL EDUCATION COMMITTEE, WE HAVE A RACIAL EQUITY COMMITTEE, ATTENDANCE BOUNDARY COMMITTEE, WE HAVE ONE FOR DISCIPLINE POLICY.

I'M SURE I'M SURE I'M LEAVING A COUPLE OUT, I JUST SCRIBBLED IT DOWN A COUPLE AND WE, I THINK, HAVE A TALENTED AND GIFTED COMMITTEE THAT IS IN THE PROCESS OF BEING BEING FORMED.

YOU KNOW, WE DO HAVE REDISTRICTING COMING UP.

WE MIGHT NEED A COMMITTEE FOR THAT.

WE HAVE YOU KNOW, WE HAVE WE START ISSUES WITH MAGNET SCHOOL ADMISSIONS.

AND, YOU KNOW, I WOULD THINK I WOULD LIKE TO SOMEHOW HAVE US BE ABLE TO FIGURE OUT A SOLUTION TO THOSE THOSE PROBLEMS. AND IT MIGHT ENCOMPASS HAVING A COMMITTEE OF ADVISORS.

BUT.

I JUST NEEDED TO HAVE SOME KIND OF CLARITY ON HOW MANY COMMITTEES.

THANK YOU. ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, COMMENTS TRUSTEES ? HEARING NONE, TRUSTEES WILL YOU PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTES, I'M SORRY BEFORE YOU GUYS.

WELL, TRUSTEE GARCIA HAS A COMMENT.

SORRY, TRUSTEE GARCIA. PRESIDENT HENRY, IF YOU CAN, YOU JUST WANTED TO SHARE WITH MY COLLEAGUES, THIS IS ABSOLUTELY THE RIGHT THING TO DO, WORKING CLOSELY WITH STUDENTS AND FAMILIES IN MY PROFESSIONAL CIRCLE, THE SUPPORT THAT WE HAVE TO GIVE TO OUR COMMUNITY MEMBERS, REGARDLESS OF THEIR CITIZENSHIP STATUS, IS THIS.

THIS IS A GREAT FIRST STEP FOR US TO DO IN DALLAS ISD.

AND WE'VE ALREADY DONE SOME WORK AS WELL.

BUT I REALLY COMMEND ALL OF US FOR TAKING THIS STEP FORWARD.

AND I HOPE THE CITY OF DALLAS WILL FOLLOW THROUGH AS WELL.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE GARCIA, NOW, TRUSTEES, COULD YOU PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTES INCLUDING TRUSTEE GARCIA, COULD YOU CAST YOUR VOTE VERBALLY? GARCIA ENTHUSIASTICALLY VOTE YES.

THE MOTION PASSES NINE ZERO.

[01:10:05]

ALL RIGHT, TRUSTEES, THE TIME IS NOW 7:13 PM AND THIS MEETING'S NOW ADJOURNED.

THANK YOU, BE SAFE.
