CARTER HIGH SCHOOL CHOIR FOR THIS REMARKABLE PERFORMANCE.

THE BOARD IS HONORED TO RECOGNIZE TRISTAN WHITFIELD, A FIFTH GRADE STUDENT AT PAUL L.

DUNBAR LEARNING CENTER AND THIS YEAR'S FOLEY IN LAUTNER'S MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

ORATORY COMPETITION WINNER.

TRISTAN, PLEASE COME FORWARD.

THIS EVENT IS DESIGNED TO RECOGNIZE AND ENCOURAGE THE WRITING AND ORATORY SKILLS OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS.

IT IS A CELEBRATION OF CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND AN OPPORTUNITY TO SPOTLIGHT TALENTED STUDENTS AS THEY LEARN ABOUT DR.

KING. STUDENTS WROTE THEIR OWN SPEECHES AND DELIVERED THEM BASED ON THEIR ANSWER TO THE QUESTION HOW WOULD DR.

KING ASSESS OUR PROGRESS IN ACHIEVING HIS VISION FOR AMERICA? TRYSTAN WILL NOW SHARE HIS WINNING SPEECH WITH US.

HELLO, MY NAME.

HELLO, MY NAME IS TRISTAN WHITFIELD, A STUDENT THAT IS INTERESTED IN EXPLORING THE QUESTION, HOW WOULD DR.

KING ASSESS OUR PROGRESS IN ACHIEVING HIS VISION FOR AMERICA? I WILL SHARE MY IDEAS OF WHAT DR.

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

SHARED WITH THE WORLD AS HE IMPARTED THE DREAM OF HOPE.

[00:10:04]

AS A BLACK MAN BORN JANUARY 15TH, 1929, NINETY TWO YEARS AGO, HIS PARENTS AND FAMILY DREAMED OF A WORLD THAT WOULD AFFORD HIM AN EDUCATION.

THEIR PUSH FOR EXCELLENCE ALLOWED HIM TO ENTER COLLEGE AT THE AGE OF 15.

THAT'S REAL ADVANCEMENT.

HE HELD UP THE MANTLE OF PEACE.

THE VISION OF EXCELLENCE AND EDUCATION THAT WAS AFFORDED DR.

KING ALSO ALLOWED HIM TO DREAM BIG FOR PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD.

HE ONCE STATED, THE FUNCTION OF EDUCATION IS TO TEACH ONE, TO THINK INTENSIVELY AND TO THINK CRITICALLY.

INTELLIGENCE PLUS CHARACTER, THAT IS THE TRUE GOAL OF EDUCATION.

THERE WAS SOME PROGRESS THAT WE KNOW HE WOULD BE PROUD OF.

SEGREGATION WAS ENDED.

HIS MARCHING AND SPEAKING LET THE WORLD KNOW THAT HE SAW THE INJUSTICES, THE LACK OF LOVE FOR ALL PEOPLE, RACIAL INJUSTICE, ECONOMIC INJUSTICE AND CIVIL INJUSTICE.

I CALL IT NO JUSTICE.

DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

WROTE MANY SPEECHES ON LOVE AND HATE.

BUT WHAT IMPRESSED ME MOST WAS HIS SAYING.

HE, WHO PASSIVELY ACCEPTS EVILS IS AS MUCH INVOLVED IN IT AS HE WHO HELPS PERPETRATE IT.

HE WHO ACCEPTS EVIL WITHOUT PROTESTING AGAINST IT, IS REALLY COOPERATING WITH IT.

DR. KING'S VISION FOR AMERICA WAS SO ALIGNED WITH THE BELIEF THAT PEOPLE SHOULD WANT TO SEE THE BETTERMENT OF MANKIND.

THE PROGRESS NOTED IN AMERICA'S ABOLISHMENT OF SLAVERY IS THAT IT IS ILLEGAL.

NOW, CHILDREN OF ALL RACES CAN ATTEND SCHOOL TOGETHER, AS WELL AS LEARN TO READ AND WRITE WITHOUT PENALTY.

JOBS ARE AVAILABLE FOR ALL WHO ARE INTERESTED IN WORKING.

ALSO, THE PURCHASE OF HOMES AND LAND IS NOW PERMISSIBLE.

OUR CIVIC DUTY AS CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES EVEN GRANTED US OUR FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN PRESIDENT, MR. BARACK OBAMA.

THAT, I'M SURE, EXCEEDED THE HOPE DR.

KING ENVISIONED IN HIS I HAVE A DREAM SPEECH ON AUGUST 28TH, 1963.

I KNOW THERE CAN BE A SAFE SPACE KNOWN AS AMERICA, WHO WANTS TO BE JUDGED BY ANYTHING BUT THEIR ACTIONS AND NOT THINGS OUT OF THEIR CONTROL.

DR. KING ENVISIONED ALL OF LOVE, NOT HATE DR.

KING'S ASSESSMENT OF OUR PROGRESS IN AMERICA.

HE WOULD ASK WHAT WILL BE OUR CONTINUED PROGRESS? WE MUST CONTINUE TO SEARCH OUR OWN HEARTS, DRIVE OUT HATE AND REMEMBER WHY HIS DREAM WAS EVEN NECESSARY.

WE MUST LIVE BY DR.

KING'S QUOTE. I HAVE DECIDED TO STICK WITH LOVE.

HATE IS TOO GREAT A BURDEN TO BEAR.

THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE] SUPERINTENDENT HINOJOSA AND TRUSTEE HENRY, PLEASE COME FORWARD TO JOIN TRISTAN FOR A PHOTO.

PRINCIPAL JONES, WOULD YOU PLEASE JOIN THEM AS WELL? THANK YOU SO MUCH.

CONGRATULATIONS, TRISTAN.

THIS CONCLUDES OUR RECOGNITIONS.

THANK YOU. WE'LL, NOW MOVE ON TO ITEM THREE, FOR REPORTS.

[3. REPORTS]

TRUSTEES WILL BEGIN WITH THE SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT.

DR. HINOJOSA YES MR. PRESIDENT, THANKS AGAIN, TRISTAN, OUTSTANDING JOB.

WE'VE HAD SOME GREAT ORATORS COME THROUGH HERE, INCLUDING THE FAMOUS DALTON SHERMAN THAT I KEEP QUOTING, AND WE GOT ANOTHER ONE IN THE PIPELINE.

SO CONGRATULATIONS, THAT'S MY FIRST ITEM.

MY CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU, TRISTAN.

MY REPORT WILL BE BRIEF.

THE ONLY OTHER ITEM I DO WANT TO ANNOUNCE TODAY IS THAT WE ARE WE HAD A STAFF DISCUSSION AND WE ARE GOING TO WITH THE NUMBER OF CASES GOING DOWN SIGNIFICANTLY IN THE COUNTY.

IN FACT, WE HAD SINGLE DIGITS OF STUDENTS AND STAFF MEMBERS WHO WERE INFECTED YESTERDAY, AND WE INITIALLY WERE GOING TO WAIT TILL MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY.

BUT WE COULDN'T DO IT BECAUSE THE DATA DID NOT ALLOW US TO DO WHAT I'M ANNOUNCING TODAY THAT WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO LOOK AT THE DATA AND WE'LL SEND OUT A FORMAL ANNOUNCEMENT NEXT WEEK. BUT OUR PLAN IS AS OF MARCH, FEBRUARY 28TH, WHICH IS A WEEK FROM MONDAY.

WE WILL MAKE A MASS RECOMMENDED AND SO WE WANT TO THANK EVERYBODY FOR THE OUTSTANDING COOPERATION DURING THIS TIME.

IF THE DATA TURNS AROUND AND TELLS US THAT WE NEED TO GO BACK TO A PROTOCOL THAT REQUIRES US TO WEAR MASKS, WE WILL NOT HESITATE TO DO THAT.

BUT I DO WANT TO THANK ALL THE STAFF AND STUDENTS FOR THEIR COMPLIANCE.

[00:15:03]

WE'LL SEND A FORMAL NOTICE AND ANNOUNCEMENT NEXT WEEK, BUT UNLESS SOMETHING CHANGES DRASTICALLY, WE PLAN TO IMPLEMENT THE NEW PROTOCOL AS A RECOMMENDED MASK WHERE ON FEBRUARY MONDAY, FEBRUARY 28TH, AND THAT CONCLUDES MY REPORT.

THANK YOU, DR. HINOJOSA.

TRUSTEES ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS? YEAH, TRUSTEE HENRY.

DR. HINOJOSA, DID YOU HAVE DISCUSSIONS ABOUT ENGAGEMENT AROUND PARENTS OR LIKE PTA OR [INAUDIBLE] EXTRACURRICULARS ON CAMPUS OR NOT? UM, THANK YOU FOR THAT.

NOW THAT THINGS HAVE GOTTEN MUCH BETTER, WE HAD THAT WILL BE IN THE FORMAL ANNOUNCEMENT.

WE DID HAVE SOME CONVERSATIONS ABOUT THAT, ABOUT VISITORS ON CAMPUS.

WE DID HAVE SOME CONVERSATIONS.

WE DIDN'T MAKE ANY FINAL DECISIONS THAT WILL BE IN THE FINAL ANNOUNCEMENT.

FIELD TRIPS ARE ALSO VERY IMPORTANT TO OUR STUDENTS.

WE HAVE ALL THE SPRING OPPORTUNITIES, SO WE ARE GOING TO CONSIDER THAT AND WE'LL MAKE THAT AS PART OF THE FORMAL ANNOUNCEMENT IN WRITING NEXT WEEK.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE HENRY, TRUSTEES ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? TRUSTEE MARSHALL, I DON'T HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, I JUST WANT TO THANK YOU, DR.

HINOJOSA, FOR MAKING THAT DECISION.

I THINK IT'S TIME FOR US TO GET BACK TO AS MUCH NORMALITY AS WE CAN, AND I THINK WE'VE BEEN PRUDENT AND THOUGHTFUL ABOUT PROTECTING OUR STUDENTS AND OUR STAFF MEMBERS HEALTH.

BUT I THINK IT'S TIME.

SO THANK YOU. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE MARSHALL.

TRUSTEES, IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE HERE? TRUSTEE GARCIA, DR.

HINOJOSA, DO YOU FORESEE ANYTHING ELSE OTHER THAN THE MASK? ANY OF OUR COVID PROTOCOLS, ANY ONGOING PROTOCOLS CHANGING? WE WILL CONSIDER EVERYTHING.

THE STAFF WILL BRING TO ME AND WE'LL DISCUSS NEXT WEEK SOME OF THE THINGS WE HAD ALREADY CHANGED, LIKE WIPING DOWN AS REGULARLY BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT THE VIRUS WAS SPREAD AIRBORNE. AND SO WE'LL CONTINUE TO LOOK AT EVERY PROTOCOL AND SEE IF WE NEED TO MAKE OTHER ADJUSTMENTS.

IF THERE ARE SOME BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS, WE'LL PUT IT IN THE WRITTEN ANNOUNCEMENT NEXT WEEK.

IF YOU HAVE SOME THINGS THAT YOU WANT US TO LOOK AT.

PLEASE CONTACT DR.

LEAR AND WE'RE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT THIS ONE MORE TIME EARLY NEXT WEEK.

OK, I'LL BE LOOKING AT.

I'LL BE LOOKING FOR THOSE SPECIFIC CHANGES IN THE FORMAL ANNOUNCEMENT.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE GARCIA.

TRUSTEES, IF THERE ARE NO OBJECTIONS, WE'RE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND TAKE THE AGENDA OUT OF ORDER AND MOVE UP OUR PUBLIC FORUM SO OUR GUESTS CAN SPEAK IF THERE ARE NO OBJECTIONS.

[4. PUBLIC FORUM]

ALL RIGHT, SO WE'LL NOW MOVE TO ITEM FOR OUR PUBLIC AGENDA, OUR AGENDA NOW CALLS FOR THE PUBLIC FORUM SEGMENT OF OUR MEETING.

WE'LL BEGIN WITH SPEAKERS TO AGENDA ITEMS, FOLLOWED BY SPEAKER TO NON-AGENDA ITEMS. I'M ASKING SPEAKERS, BE MINDFUL OF YOUR FELLOW SPEAKERS AND REFRAIN FROM USING INDIVIDUAL NAMES TO INCLUDE STUDENT NAMES AND TO ADDRESS THE BOARD AND NOT THE INDIVIDUAL TRUSTEES.

COMMENTS INVOLVING THE PERFORMANCE OF INDIVIDUAL DISTRICT EMPLOYEES OR OFFICERS SHOULD BE MADE THROUGH THE GRIEVANCE POLICY.

AUDIENCE, I'M ASKING YOU NOT TO ENGAGE IN CONDUCT THAT WILL DISRUPT THE MEETING.

MS. SCULLY, WILL YOU PLEASE CALL THE NAMES OF THE SPEAKERS? YES, AND I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND SPEAKERS THAT YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES TO SPEAK OUR FIRST. WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT THE MICROPHONE, PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME.

OUR FIRST SPEAKER IS AMY ANDERSON, FOLLOWED BY SHANTI GREER.

GOOD AFTERNOON, MY NAME IS AMY HENDERSON.

FIRST OF ALL, THANK YOU, DR.

HINOJOSA AND ALL THE TRUSTEES FOR SUPPORTING OUR STUDENTS IN THE DIFFERENT WAYS THAT YOU HAVE SHOWN. SO THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I ALSO WANT TO THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR LISTENING TO ME AS I SHARE SOME CONCERNS I SEE AS A HIGH SCHOOL COUNSELOR.

SENATE BILL 159, WAS PASSED AND SIGNED LAST YEAR BY GOVERNOR ABBOTT TO SUPPORT US COUNSELORS TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE TIME TO COUNSEL WITH STUDENTS ACADEMICALLY AND SUPPORT THEM EMOTIONALLY WITHOUT HAVING NON COUNSELING DUTIES SUCH AS HALL MONITOR, SUBSTITUTING LUNCH, DUTY TESTING AND ET CETERA AS A HINDRANCE.

IN PARTICULAR, HIGH SCHOOL COUNSELORS ARE THE ONLY ONES ON CAMPUS WHO REVIEW, ANALYZE AND MAINTAIN, AS WELL AS UPDATE TRANSCRIPTS.

FOR ME, THAT'S INDIVIDUALLY AND METICULOUSLY LOOKING AT 400 PLUS TRANSCRIPTS TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY'RE MEETING STATE STANDARDS FOR GRADUATION.

UP TO 50 PERCENT OF MY CASELOAD OF STUDENTS ARE NOT ON TRACK FOR GRADUATION.

WE NEED TIME DURING THE SCHOOL DAY TO SIT DOWN WITH STUDENTS AND FAMILIES.

[00:20:01]

WE NEED TO FOLLOW UP WITH STUDENTS AND HOW THEY'RE DOING IN THEIR CREDIT RECOVERY PROGRAMS SUCH AS EVENING ACADEMY AND RECONNECT.

A LOT OF TIMES WE DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THAT.

THE DATA SHOWS THAT A LOT OF STUDENTS ARE STRUGGLING MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY.

I DO HAVE STUDENTS WHO HAVE COME TO ME PLEADING FOR THERAPISTS, FOR COUNSELING AND, THERE IS ONE STUDENT WHO WAS TRYING TO CALL 9-1-1.

AND COULDN'T SO, YOU KNOW, LUCKILY, I DIDN'T GO TO LUNCH DUTY BECAUSE THE KID CAME TO ME AND, YOU KNOW, APPARENTLY HE WAS BEING ASSAULTED AT HOME.

I HAD TO CALL CPS.

LUCKILY, THEY'RE ON SPEED DIAL ON MY PHONE.

THE COPS CAME AND THEY WERE SO HELPFUL IN GETTING THE STUDENT REMOVED FROM THE HOME.

UM, THAT'S JUST ONE OF MANY.

UM, OUR SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS ARE STRETCHED THIN.

WE JUST NEED SOME SUPPORT.

EACH CAMPUS HAS DIFFERENT NEEDS.

AND I KNOW US COUNSELORS ARE OVERWHELMED, ESPECIALLY IN HIGH SCHOOL, THERE ARE MANY SPREADSHEETS THAT WE HAVE TO COMPLETE AND WE JUST WANT TO BE THERE FOR OUR KIDS AND WE WANT TO SEE OUR KIDS GRADUATE.

SO PLEASE SUPPORT US IN TURN, SO THAT WE CAN SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS IN DALLAS.

THANK YOU, MS. HENDERSON.

OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS SHANTAY GREER, FOLLOWED BY PETE GOMEZ.

PETE GOMEZ, FOLLOWED BY JENNIFER BALDWIN.

LOKOJA LONDON, FOLLOWED BY BONNIE VILLA.

MM HMM. ASHLEY PERETTI, FOLLOWED BY TAMMY BROWN RODRIGUEZ.

MIKE COOK.

OH. MY NAME IS TAMMY BROWN RODRIGUEZ, AND I'M HERE TO SPEAK AGAINST THE EIGHT HUNDRED AND FIFTY BOOKS THAT WE HAVE ALERTED THIS BOARD, AS WELL AS THE TASB, THE TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL BOARDS, THE TEXAS EDUCATION AGENCY, THE STATE LIBRARY AND ARCHIVES AND COMMISSIONS. YOU HAVE ALL BEEN HANDED THOSE EIGHT HUNDRED AND FIFTY TITLES ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS AND EMAILED, BUT I'D LIKE TO BRING YOUR ATTENTION TO THE HANDOUT THAT I GAVE YOU, AND THAT HANDOUT INCLUDES PORNOGRAPHY IN A BOOK CALLED GENDER QUEER.

IF YOU LOOK AT THIS IMAGE, YOU CAN SEE IT'S A SEX ACT BETWEEN TWO INDIVIDUALS.

THIS IS IN OUR SCHOOLS.

AS A PARENT, THIS IMAGING IS UNACCEPTABLE TO HAVE MY KIDS EXPOSED TO.

WE HAVE SENT EMAILS.

THE GOVERNOR HAS WRITTEN A LETTER, TO YOU, TO TASB, TO THE LIBRARY, TO THE ASSOCIATION OF EDUCATION, AND NOBODY HAS STEPPED UP TO REMOVE THIS BOOK.

NOW, I CAN'T TELL YOU ANY MORE THAT THE FACT THAT YOU TOOK AN OATH AND YOU MIGHT RECALL THAT SAYS I SOLEMNLY SWEAR OR AFFIRM THAT I WILL FAITHFULLY EXECUTE THE DUTIES OF THE OFFICE OF AN ELECTED OFFICIAL OF THE STATE OF TEXAS AND WILL DO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY TO PRESERVE, PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION AND THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES AND THIS STATE. SO HELP ME, GOD.

EACH OF YOU TOOK THAT OATH.

EACH OF YOU HAVE VIOLATED THAT OATH.

EACH OF YOU HAVE HAD ZERO ACTION AGAINST THIS.

AND THE RESPONSE I HEAR IS THAT'S NOT OUR JOB.

WELL, TELL ME THEN, WHOSE JOB IS IT TO SAVE OUR KIDS FROM PORNOGRAPHY? WHAT I FIND EVEN MORE INTERESTING IS THAT THIS THE DISTRIBUTION OF PORNOGRAPHY IS A VIOLATION OF PENAL CODE 43.26 WHERE YOU HAVE OFFENSE YOU HAVE COMMITTED WHEN YOU KNOWINGLY OR INTENTIONALLY POSSESS THE VISUALLY DEPICTS A CHILD YOUNGER THAN 18 ENGAGING IN A SEXUAL ACTIVITY.

YOU ARE CULPABLE AND RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS PORNOGRAPHY BEING IN OUR SCHOOLS.

[00:25:06]

THIS IS NOT A PARTY LINE ISSUE.

THIS IS A CHARACTER ISSUE.

THIS IS A MORALITY ISSUE AND THIS IS A LEGAL ISSUE FOR YOU NOT TO BE MOVING ON IT OR EVEN RESPONDING TO EMAILS ABOUT IT IS UNACCEPTABLE FOR ALL OF THE STATE AGENCIES TO SIT BY AND ALLOW EIGHT HUNDRED AND FIFTY OF THESE BOOKS IN OUR LIBRARIES, FOR CHILDREN TO HAVE ACCESS TO IS REPREHENSIBLE.

YOU WILL ONCE AGAIN GET AN EMAIL FROM ME WITH THIS IMAGE.

YOU WILL ONCE AGAIN GET A REQUEST OF A CALL TO ACTION, AND IF YOU CANNOT ABIDE SPEAKERS] RODRIGUEZ, THEN YOUR TIME HAS EXPIRED.

SOMEBODY ELSE WHO CAN...

MIKE COOK? MIKE COOK, FOLLOWED BY JANET MARIANI.

I SECOND ALL OF THAT.

GET RID OF THE PORNOGRAPHY NOW.

ALL OF THESE PEOPLE HERE ARE ALL OF THESE PEOPLE HERE.

ALL OF THESE PEOPLE HERE, WE STAND AGAINST YOU.

FOR WHAT YOU ARE DOING TO OUR CHILDREN.

THIS YOUNG LADY HERE WHO JUST BROKE DOWN INTO TEARS OVER WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY TO YOU, YOU'RE PART OF IT.

YOU, YOU ARE PART OF IT.

GET RID OF IT.

SOUTH DALLAS, EAST DALLAS, WEST DALLAS, NORTH DALLAS, GET IT OUT NOW. DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT? I'VE TALKED TO SOME PARENTS.

ALL OVER DALLAS.

THIS WEEK, LAST WEEK.

AND I'VE DISCUSSED WITH THEM YOUR REPREHENSIBLE BEHAVIOR, AS SHE CALLED IT.

YOUR THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR IS BUYING US TRASH.

IT'S BUYING US FAILURE.

IT'S BUYING US EMOTIONAL TRAUMA JUST LIKE THIS, JUST LIKE THIS YOUNG LADY SAID JUST A MOMENT AGO. YOU, YOU ARE PART OF IT.

YOU ARE NOTHING LIKE MLK.

YOU ARE THE OPPOSITE OF MLK.

YOU ARE A SCOURGE ON DALLAS.

YOU ARE A SCOURGE ON AMERICA.

AMERICA REJECTS YOU.

THESE PEOPLE HERE, THESE PEOPLE HERE, AND THE FEW COPS IN DISD.

WHO ACTUALLY ARE AMERICAN IN THEIR HEART AND IN THEIR MIND AND ON LEGALLY ON PAPER, WE STAND AGAINST YOU, EVERY ONE OF US, YOU WILL BE PUT TO AN END WITH YOUR CRIMES.

I STAND WITH THIS YOUNG LADY BACK HERE WHO IS A COUNCILOR.

I STAND WITH THIS WOMAN HERE WHO IS NODDING HER HEAD, YES, I STAND HERE WITH THIS WOMAN, THIS MAN, THIS WOMAN AGAINST YOU AND YOUR GARBAGE THAT HAS GONE ON FOR YEARS.

YOU YOU WILL BE FINISHED BY ALL OF THESE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT OUR CHILDREN, ABOUT OUR CITY.

YOU WILL BE PUT TO AN END.

JANET MARIANA MARIANI, FOLLOWED BY DANIEL RODRIGUEZ.

HI, I'M JANET MARIANI.

WANT TO HAVE A QUOTE HERE FROM MARTIN LUTHER KING.

HE, WHO PASSIVELY ACCEPTS EVIL, IS AS MUCH INVOLVED IN IT AS HE WHO HELPS TO PERPETRATE IT. HE WHO ACCEPTS EVIL WITHOUT PROTESTING AGAINST IT, IS REALLY COOPERATING WITH IT.

SEXUALLY EXPLICIT BOOKS HAVE NO PLACE IN OUR DALLAS SCHOOLS OR ANY SCHOOL K THROUGH 12.

IT IS AGAINST THE LAW AND WE WANT ALL THOSE BOOKS REMOVED.

WHY ARE THEY THERE? WHAT PURPOSE DO THEY SERVE? I CAN'T IMAGINE ANYONE USING THEIR INTELLIGENCE, THEIR SOUL, THEIR GOD GIVEN SENSE OF FREEDOM AND LIBERTY THAT WOULD PUT THAT IN THE IN THE HANDS OF A SMALL CHILD.

[00:30:05]

ONLY A SICK FREAK MIND WOULD DO THAT.

HOW DO WE FIX IT? IT STARTS WITH THE RECOGNITION THIS IS NOT A ONE BOOK OR TWO BOOK THING.

IT STARTS WITH THE REALIZATION THAT SUPPORTING INQUIRY, INQUIRY AND LITERACY AND PROTECTING CHILDREN ARE NOT MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE IDEAS.

IT STARTS WITH ACKNOWLEDGING THAT PORNOGRAPHY CASTS THROUGH THE LENS OF REPRESENTATION IS STILL PORNOGRAPHY.

IT STARTS WITH TRANSPARENCY.

EVIDENCE BASED POLICIES.

A SHARED PURPOSE AND PARTICIPATION OF ALL STAKEHOLDERS.

ONLY WHEN WE RECOGNIZE AND DO THESE THINGS CAN WE CREATE AFFIRMING, HIGH QUALITY LEARNING SPACES THAT ALSO KEEP CHILDREN SAFE.

THIS WAS WRITTEN IN THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS BY CHARLES RADCLIFFE.

HE'S A KELLER ISD TRUSTEE AND THE SCIENTIST AT TEXAS A&M.

AND IT JUST SPEAKS TO THE CRAZINESS.

AND LET ME QUOTE SOME MORE.

THERE REMAINS A MISGUIDED BELIEF BY SOME THAT YOUNG MINDS ARE FIRST AMENDMENT FREE FOR ALLS, AND SEXUALLY EXPLICIT BOOKS HAVE GREATER INTRINSIC VALUE IF THEY DEAL WITH DIVERSE PERSPECTIVES. THAT'S BULL.

THESE POSITIONS ARE VALUE JUDGMENTS SHAPED BY PERSONAL BIAS AND BELIEFS, NOT ROOTED IMPARTIALITY, CHILD SAFETY OR EDUCATION.

I WISH Y'ALL WOULD LISTEN TO ME AND STOP DOING WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

YOU'RE JUST SITTING THERE DOING YOUR OWN READING OR ON YOUR COMPUTER.

WHY DON'T YOU LISTEN TO PEOPLE? WE'RE BEGGING YOU TO STOP THIS INSANITY.

IT'S NOT DOING ANY GOOD FOR ANY OF US.

WE WANT HEALTHY, EDUCATED, HIGH STANDARD.

EDUCATION IN OUR SCHOOLS.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT? WE WANT DALLAS NOT TO BE A JOKE.

NOT A JOKE.

THANK YOU. OUR LAST SPEAKER IS DANIEL RODRIGUEZ.

HELLO. I'M DANIEL RODRIGUEZ.

TODAY, I'M COMING TO YOU AS A CONCERNED CITIZEN.

UM. I WANT YOU GUYS TO LOOK AROUND AT OUR SOCIETY TODAY.

CAN WE ALL AGREE THAT WE HAVE MORE CRIME? WE HAVE MORE DISRUPTION.

WE HAVE NO ACCOUNTABILITY, THERE'S NO RESPECT, THERE'S NO HONOR AND THERE'S NO CHARACTER IN OUR SOCIETY.

IT'S FADING AWAY.

I'M NOT REFERRING TO YOU GUYS UP THERE.

I'M REFERRING TO JUST A SOCIETY AS A WHOLE.

MY CONCERN IS, IS THAT THIS ALL BEGINS IN EDUCATION, SADLY.

YOU KNOW, WE HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT ARE PROCREATING THAT AREN'T TAKING RESPONSIBILITY AND THEY'RE PUTTING IT UP, YOU KNOW, TO THE SCHOOLS TO PREPARE THEIR CHILDREN FOR ADULTHOOD.

AND TODAY, WHAT I WANT TO DO IS JUST TALK ABOUT THE THREE FOUNDATIONS THAT ARE VERY IMPORTANT WE'RE ACTUALLY THERE'S FOUR.

THERE'S CHARACTER, ACCOUNTABILITY, RESPECT AND DISCIPLINE.

I JUST ENCOURAGE YOU GUYS TO COME UP WITH SYSTEMS THAT WE CAN BRING THAT BACK.

I HAPPEN TO BE LUCKY THAT I WORK IN AN INDUSTRY WHERE I HAVE A LOT OF CONVERSATIONS WITH TEACHERS, AND I'VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR 40 YEARS NOW AND BACK IN MY EARLY DAYS, I STARTED HEARING TEACHERS TALK ABOUT, YOU KNOW, THERE'S NO DISCIPLINE IN THE CLASSROOM, HOW LITTLE JOHNNY, YOU KNOW, WILL STAB YOU WITH A PENCIL AND NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN TO LITTLE JOHNNY.

YOU KNOW, I LIKE TO HAVE Y'ALL'S ATTENTION WHEN I'M SPEAKING ABOUT THIS BECAUSE THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT IF YOU WANT TO SAVE OUR SOCIETY, ARE WE GOING TO CONTINUE THE PATH WE'RE ON? BUT ANYWAY, IT TAKES A LOT OF COURAGE TO BE ABLE TO STEP OUT AND HAVE A STANCE AND DECIDE THAT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

WE'VE GOT TO PUT THE POWER BACK INTO OUR TEACHERS WHERE THEY HAVE ACCOUNTABILITY.

I'M VERY LUCKY THAT I GREW UP IN A TIME WHEN THERE WAS ACCOUNTABILITY AND I WAS, YOU KNOW, I HAD I HAD A LEARNING DIFFICULTIES WITH DYSLEXIA, ADD AND MY REMEDY IN SCHOOL WAS GETTING PADDLED AT THE OFFICE.

AND THEN I GOT PADDLED AT HOME AGAIN.

BECAUSE LET ME TELL YOU, I LIVED IN A TIME WHEN IF YOU WERE DISCIPLINED AT SCHOOL, YOUR PARENTS DID NOT APPRECIATE THAT.

AND I KNOW DR. HINOJOSA KNOWS YOU GREW UP IN THAT ERA TOO, AND WE NEED TO START THINKING ABOUT BRINGING THAT BACK BECAUSE IF WE DON'T, WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO HAVE HIGH CRIME, NO ACCOUNTABILITY AND THINGS ARE JUST GOING TO GO CRAZIER.

BUT I WANT YOU GUYS TO THINK ABOUT THIS.

IT TAKES COURAGE.

I KNOW YOU GUYS KNOW OF LAUREN DAVIS.

I WANT YOU TO REMEMBER AND THINK ABOUT HER, HER COURAGE.

THIS IS A WOMAN WHO CAME BEFORE ALL OF YOU NEEDING HELP FOR HER SITUATION, AND SHE GOT

[00:35:02]

NONE AND SHE WAS RIDICULED BY THE SOCIETY.

YOU KNOW, HER KIDS WERE OSTRACIZED BY THEIR TEACHERS, THEIR FELLOW STUDENTS.

AND, YOU KNOW, THEY LOST.

THEY COULD HAVE LOST THEIR BUSINESS.

THEY LOST THEIR FRIENDS FOR SURE.

AND THEIR KIDS LOST THEIR FRIENDS.

BUT THAT TOOK COURAGE.

I WANT YOU GUYS TO DIG DEEP AND TRY TO FIND SOME OF LAUREN DAVIS'S COURAGE BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT THAT'S WHAT'S LACKING IN OUR COUNTRY TODAY.

AND IT BEGINS WITH YOU GUYS.

THANK YOU. THIS CONCLUDES OUR SPEAKERS.

THANK YOU. WE'LL NOW MOVE BACK TO ITEM 3.01, STUDENT OUTCOME GOALS.

GPM'S 1.1 THROUGH 1.3 AND 5.1 AND 5.2.

EXCUSE ME, PRESIDENT MACKEY. ARE WE GOING TO START WITH THE GOALS AND NOT THE REPORT, I'M SORRY. OH, I THOUGHT WE ALREADY DID THE SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT.

WE HAVE A DIFFERENT ONE.

WE HAVE THE STUDENT OUTCOME GOALS, SO IF WE CAN PULL UP THE FIRST POWERPOINT WITH STUDENT OUTCOME GOALS. DID WE ALREADY DO? I THOUGHT WE ALREADY DID THE SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT.

WAS THAT WHAT WE DID BEFOREHAND? WE CAN START AT SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT IF WE DID NOT DO THAT.

WE HAVE TWO ITEMS UNDER THE SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT.

OK, LET'S DO THOSE.

OK, THANK YOU.

SO THANK YOU, PRESIDENT MACKEY TRUSTEES, DR.

HINOJOSA, WE HAVE TWO ITEMS ON THE REPORT FROM THE BRIEFING THAT WE WILL GO THROUGH.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE CONSERVATIVE WITH OUR TIME, BUT WE DO HAVE TWO TOPICS OF BIG IMPORTANCE THAT WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE SPEND SOME TIME ON.

THE FIRST TOPIC WILL BE A FOCUS ON INSTRUCTIONAL EQUITY THROUGH OUR SCHOOL DAY REDESIGN AND INTERCESSION CALENDAR, AND THEN WE'LL HAVE AN UPDATE ON OUR DISTRICT OF INNOVATION PLAN. AND THEN AFTER THAT, WE WILL GO THROUGH OUR GPM UPDATES.

I'LL GO AHEAD AND TURN IT OVER TO OUR TEAM FIRST REPRESENTING INSTRUCTIONAL EQUITY.

I'LL LET YOU INTRODUCE YOURSELVES AND GET STARTED.

TO SUPERINTENDENT AND THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES, AS YOU KNOW, ACHIEVING RACIAL EQUITY TAKES EVERY PERSON AND EVERY DEPARTMENT WORKING IN CONCERT WITH AN EQUITY MINDSET.

AND TODAY WE'RE HERE TO HIGHLIGHT THE AERIOS COLLABORATION WITH TEACHING AND LEARNING AND SCHOOL LEADERSHIP AS THEY PILOT SOLUTIONS FOR LEARNING, RECOVERY AND LEARNING ACCELERATION. THIS WORK IS ALIGNED WITH THE INSTRUCTIONAL EQUITY PILLAR AND EXPLORES TWO CALENDARS THE INTERCESSION CALENDAR AT 41 CAMPUSES AND THE SCHOOL DAY REDESIGN CAMPUS CALENDAR AT NINE CAMPUSES.

PARTICIPATION IN THIS PILOT PRIORITIZED FIRST THE SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITIES INTEREST, AND THEN ALSO THE DISTRICT'S COMMITMENT TO AFRICAN-AMERICAN AND EMERGING BILINGUAL STUDENTS.

BOTH CALENDAR MODELS ARE DESIGNED FOR LEARNING ACCELERATION FOR OUR STUDENTS AS WELL AS OUR TEACHERS, AND WE'VE HAD MORE THAN 1000 TEACHERS ENGAGED IN EXTENDED COLLABORATION, PLANNING AND PROFESSIONAL GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES, AND AROUND 14000 STUDENTS RECEIVE ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONAL TIME.

WHAT WE LEARN FROM THESE MODELS WILL HELP US MAKE DECISIONS ON HOW TO PROCEED WITH EXTENDED LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES AT THE END OF THE TWO YEAR PILOT.

AND SO NOW DEREK AND DON ARE GOING TO SHARE SOME EARLY UPDATES FROM THE MODELS.

THANK YOU AND GOOD EVENING, TRUSTEES.

WE ARE VERY HAPPY TO GIVE YOU A FIRST LOOK AT HOW THIS EXTENDED YEAR EFFORT IS GOING.

AS A QUICK REMINDER, WE SET OUT FOR A TWO YEAR IMPLEMENTATION PLAN.

THIS IS OUR FIRST REAL UPDATE ON HOW THAT IS GOING.

WE'RE NOT AT A PLACE TO ASK YOU TO MAKE A DECISION ABOUT THE LONG TERM.

WE'RE SIMPLY PROVIDING YOU AN IMPLEMENTATION UPDATE ALONG THE WAY.

WE WANT TO START THAT BY LOOKING AT OUR FIRST READ OF POTENTIAL ACADEMIC IMPACT ON STUDENTS AT THESE FORTY SIX SCHOOLS.

THIS SLIDE SHOWS YOU A COMPARISON OF THE GROWTH THAT WE ARE SEEING AT CAMPUSES FROM BEGINNING TO MIDDLE OF YOUR MAP.

WE SHOW THAT IN READING AND IN MATH, AND THIS IS MATCHING CAMPUSES BASED ON LIKE PEERS.

SO WE HAVE SCHOOL DAY REDESIGN CAMPUSES COMPARED TO SIMILAR SCHOOLS LIKE THEM DEMOGRAPHICALLY AND ACADEMICALLY IN THE DISTRICT AND THE SAME THING FOR INTERCESSION.

THE HEADLINE HERE IS FOR READING.

WE'RE ACTUALLY SEEING OUR EXTENDED YEAR SCHOOLS GET SLIGHTLY BETTER GROWTH THIS YEAR IN READING COMPARED TO THEIR MATCHED CAMPUS PEERS.

[00:40:01]

IN MATH, IT'S A LITTLE BIT LESS, BUT OVERALL WE'RE ACTUALLY SEEING HIGHER GROWTH IN THE DISTRICT ON MATH THAN WE ARE IN READING.

SO BY THE TWO CONTENT AREAS, THIS IS A LITTLE MIX, BUT WE FEEL LIKE WE ARE ON A GOOD PATH IN TERMS OF POTENTIAL IMPACT HERE ACADEMICALLY FOR OUR STUDENTS BASED ON THESE ADDITIONAL SERVICES AND SUPPORTS.

THE CAVEAT HERE IS THIS IS A CAMPUS LEVEL COMPARISON, NOT A STUDENT LEVEL COMPARISON.

WE WILL BE ABLE TO SHOW YOU THAT LATER WITH END OF YEAR DATA.

SO FOR INTERCESSION CAMPUSES, FOR EXAMPLE, THIS INCLUDES EVERY STUDENT THERE, WHETHER OR NOT THEY ACTUALLY ATTENDED AN INTERCESSION WEEK.

SO WE'LL BE ABLE TO GET MORE SOPHISTICATED IN THE DATA ANALYSIS AS WE GO ALONG.

BUT WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO NEXT IS WE'RE GOING TO START WITH DON GIVING US A SENSE OF HOW IMPLEMENTATION IS WORKING FOR INTERCESSION.

I'LL THEN COME BACK AND QUICKLY LOOK AT THAT FOR SCHOOL DAY REDESIGN.

SO GOOD EVENING. SO WE FIRST WANTED TO LOOK AT THE INTERCESSION CALENDAR AND WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE WERE IMPLEMENTING THE PROGRAM DESIGNED THE THREE MAIN COMPONENTS OF THAT DESIGN. IT'S TARGETING ABOUT A THIRD OF THE STUDENT POPULATION FOR THE INTERCESSION WEEK ITSELF. YOU CAN SEE ATTENDANCE IS JUST ABOVE THE 33 PERCENT MARK AND HAS INCREASED EVERY TIME, ENSURING THAT THE TARGETED POPULATION IS REPRESENTATIVE OF OUR PRIORITY STUDENT GROUPS, WHICH YOU CAN SEE IN THE MIDDLE HERE.

YOU HAVE OVER. WE HAVE OVERREPRESENTED, OVERREPRESENTED AFRICAN-AMERICAN AND EMERGENT BILINGUAL STUDENTS AS PLANNED, AND WE'RE EXCITED TO SHARE THAT OUR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES ARE ALSO BENEFITING FROM THESE ADDITIONAL WEEKS.

AND FINALLY, WITH THE INSTRUCTION ITSELF, DURING THESE ADDITIONAL WEEKS, WE WERE IN SMALL GROUPS. OUR TARGET WAS AROUND 15 AND THE AND THE CHART ON THE RIGHT SHOWS THAT WE ARE ACTUALLY CREATING THOSE OPPORTUNITIES FOR INDIVIDUALIZED ATTENTION WITH GROUP SIZES AROUND 13 TO 14 DURING OUR INNER SESSION WEEKS.

ON THE NEXT SLIDE, YOU'LL SEE OUR SURVEYS AND FOCUS GROUPS ARE INDICATING RELATIVELY HIGH SATISFACTION RATES WITH THIS DESIGN AS IT STANDS.

WE'RE THRILLED WITH THE POSITIVE REPORTS COMING FROM STUDENTS AROUND FEELING MORE PREPARED WITH THEIR SCHOOL WORK AND BUILDING STRONGER RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE ADULTS ON THEIR CAMPUS. SIMILARLY, THE FEEDBACK FROM TEACHERS IS THAT THEY'RE REPORTING ACADEMIC GROWTH IN THE STUDENTS WHO ARE ATTENDING REGULARLY.

AND FINALLY, ON THE RIGHT PART OF THE THEORY OF ACTION HERE IS AROUND SUPPORTING TEACHER GROWTH IN THESE SCHOOLS, AS WELL AS TO SUPPORT THE DAY TO DAY INSTRUCTION AT OUR HIGHEST NEED SCHOOLS. AND THERE ARE STRONG RESULTS FROM THAT OBSERVATION DATA.

WE ARE CAPTURING ALL OF THESE LESSONS AND INSIGHTS FROM THIS WORK TO CONTINUE TO IMPROVE.

SO ACROSS OUR INTERCESSION SCHOOLS, WE FEEL LIKE IMPLEMENTATION IS WORKING OUT AS PLANNED, AND FOLKS ARE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THAT AND ENJOYING THE WORK FOR THE MOST PART.

NOW LET'S TURN TO WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE FOR OUR FIVE SCHOOL DAY REDESIGN CAMPUSES.

THEY SET OUT TO REALLY FOCUS ON THREE BIG THINGS INCREASING COLLABORATION TIME, IMPROVING SEL OPPORTUNITIES AND EXPANDING SMALL GROUP LEARNING.

WE'RE SEEING IN TERMS OF FEEDBACK FROM TEACHERS AND STAFF THAT SEL AND SMALL GROUPS ARE WORKING FAIRLY WELL. THERE'S A FAIRLY HIGH NUMBER OF THOSE PEOPLE SAYING THAT THAT'S WORKING AS PLANNED AND IT'S YIELDING THE IMPACT.

WE HAVE MORE WORK TO DO ON THE COLLABORATION TIME AND WE WERE ABLE TO MEET WITH PRINCIPALS, IN FACT, LAST WEEK TO DIG INTO THIS SOME MORE AND THINK ABOUT SOLUTIONS TO IMPROVE BOTH THAT TIME AND HOW IT'S USED AND THAT EXPERIENCE FOR TEACHERS.

SO IT IS YIELDING THE IMPACT IN THEIR LESSONS.

SO THE SUMMARY HERE IS DESIGN IS MOSTLY WORKING AS PLANNED, BUT WE DO HAVE SOME TWEAKS AND IMPROVEMENTS TO MAKE WITH THESE FIVE SCHOOLS TO GET EVEN MORE IMPACT OUT OF THE ADDITIONAL DAYS.

THE OTHER THING THAT WE'RE SEEING AT SCHOOL DAY REDESIGN, WHICH IS PART OF OUR OVERALL PURPOSE HERE, IS WE WANT IT TO BE ABLE TO LEARN OVER THESE TWO YEARS WHAT MIGHT BE THE BEST WAY TO USE ADDITIONAL TIME FOR OUR STUDENTS.

SO WE ARE ABLE TO COMPARE HOW THAT PLAYS OUT DIFFERENTLY AT SCHOOL DAY REDESIGNED CAMPUSES VERSUS INTERCESSION CAMPUSES.

THE OVERALL EXPERIENCE IS A BIT MORE MIXED AT OUR SCHOOL.

THEY REDESIGNED PLACES, BUT IT'S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT THEY ESSENTIALLY JUST HAVE A LONGER SCHOOL YEAR.

THEY ARE NOT THESE DEFINED BREAKS THAT SORT OF CHANGED THE MODEL LIKE AT INNER SESSION CAMPUSES, SO THEY'RE WORKING THROUGH MORE DAYS THAT FEEL MORE NORMAL.

BUT THOSE TEACHERS AND STAFF ARE RECOGNIZING THAT IT'S STILL TOO EARLY TO TELL WHAT THE ULTIMATE IMPACT WILL BE ON OUR STUDENTS, WHICH AGAIN, IS WHY WE SET THIS UP AS A TWO YEAR EFFORT AND NOT SOMETHING WE WOULD DECIDE MID-COURSE THIS SCHOOL YEAR ON IF WE WERE TO MAKE CHANGES. SO WE ARE CONTINUING WITH ALL FORTY SIX SCHOOLS CONTINUING THIS MODEL INTO NEXT SCHOOL YEAR AS WELL.

SO THIS LAST SLIDE SIMPLY SUMMARIZES THE UPDATES THAT YOU JUST HEARD FROM DEREK AND FROM DON REGARDING THE INITIAL DATA, WHICH INCLUDED THE TEACHER PERCEPTIONS OF OUR SCHOOL DAY REDESIGN AND INTERCESSION CALENDARS.

THE REO IS EXCITED TO CONTINUE THE COLLABORATION WITH TEACHING AND LEARNING AND SCHOOL

[00:45:04]

LEADERSHIP AS WE FOLLOW THE PROGRESS AND THE OUTCOMES THAT TEACHERS AND STUDENTS WILL DEMONSTRATE AS A RESULT OF BEING GIVEN THE EXTENDED TEACHING AND LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES.

SO THANK YOU. AND NOW WE'LL MOVE INTO THE ADDITIONAL INNOVATION UPDATE, AND FIRST OF ALL, I'D SAY GOOD EVENING, PRESIDENT MACKEY, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD AND DR.

HINOJOSA. AS WE BEGIN WITH THE DISTRICT OF INNOVATION UPDATE KIND OF LEVEL SET WHERE WE ARE, WE A FEW MONTHS AGO IN OCTOBER, WE BROUGHT THIS FORWARD TO YOU FOR CONSIDERATION.

THE PROCESS THAT WE WOULD USE AS THE DISTRICT OF INNOVATION AND DALLAS ISD WILL EXPIRE IN JULY OF THIS YEAR. AND SO WE ARE IN NEED OF AN UPDATE TO EXTEND THAT, IF YOU WILL, FIVE MORE YEARS. IN ADDITION, WE WANTED TO DO IT EARLY TOO, BECAUSE IT HAS IMPLICATIONS, EXCUSE ME, FOR STAFFING.

AND SO WE DID BRING IT FORWARD FOR CONSIDERATION AND WE'VE GONE THROUGH THE PROCESS.

AND NOW THIS IS AN UPDATE.

WE'VE BEEN VERY FORTUNATE TO HAVE A CHAIR.

MRS. YULISE WATERS LEAD THE PROCESS FOR US.

AND SO MRS. WATER IS ONLINE, AND SHE'S GOING TO TALK ABOUT HER ROLE IN LEADING AS CHAIR OF DISTRICT OF INNOVATION.

MRS. WATERS. GREAT, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I APPRECIATE THAT, AND HELLO, TRUSTEES, THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR THIS TIME AND OPPORTUNITY. AGAIN, AS WAS MENTIONED, MY NAME IS YULISE REEVES WATERS AND I'M THE CHIEF INNOVATION OFFICER FOR LONE STAR JUSTICE ALLIANCE.

BUT I AM ALSO A NATIVE DALLASITE AND THE PROUD PARENT OF FOUR CHILDREN, THREE OF WHOM ARE SCHOOL AGE AND OUR DALLAS ISD SCHOOLS, TOWN VIEW, EDUARDO MATA AND IRMA LERMA RANGEL.

AND IT'S BEEN MY HONOR AND PRIVILEGE TO SERVE AS THE CHAIR OF THE DISTRICT INNOVATION COMMITTEE CONCERNING THE THE DALLAS ISD RENEWAL PLAN.

I TELL YOU IT WAS A WONDERFUL LEARNING PROCESS AND ABSOLUTELY THRILLED TO BE A PART OF IT. WE, THE COMMITTEE, WHICH WAS COMPRISED OF INDIVIDUALS FROM EACH OF THE THE DISTRICTS, AS WELL AS SOME PERSONS WHO WERE APPOINTED BY SUPERINTENDENT MR. HINOJOSA AND THE COMMITTEE MET ON THE 17TH OF NOVEMBER.

WE ALSO MET ON THE 8TH OF DECEMBER AND THE 15TH OF DECEMBER.

AT EACH OF THE MEETINGS, WE REVIEWED THE RECOMMENDED PLAN, PARTICULARLY ON THE 17TH.

WE HAD AN EXTENSIVE TIME OF VETTING THE PLAN OF ASKING QUESTIONS OF A STAFF PERSONS FROM THE DISTRICT OF DIGGING INTO THE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT WERE PROVIDED, ELICITING FEEDBACK AND REALLY KIND OF DIGGING INTO WHAT WAS TO THE RECOMMENDATIONS BEING PROVIDED AND THROUGH THE TIME PERIOD FROM NOVEMBER THE 17TH TO OUR DECEMBER 8TH MEETING.

WE ALSO HAD ADDITIONAL TIME TO READ MORE MATERIALS TO PROVIDE REAL TIME FEEDBACK IN PREPARATION FOR OUR DECEMBER 8TH MEETING, WHERE WE AGAIN REVIEWED THE PLAN TO ENSURE THAT EVERYONE WAS OF ONE ACCORD AND ALL COMMENTS HAD BEEN ELICITED.

AND WE APPROVED THE PLAN UNANIMOUSLY, WITH ALL COMMITTEE MEMBERS BEING SUPPORTIVE OF EACH OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT WERE PROVIDED WITH ANY SUGGESTIONS THAT WERE ALSO PROVIDED AS WELL. AND THEN ON DECEMBER THE 15TH, WE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO LITERALLY READ LINE BY LINE EACH OF EACH OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS AND TO MAKE EDITS TO PROVIDE CLARIFYING CONTENT TO ULTIMATELY GIVE OUR SIGNATURE AND SIGN OFF ON THE PLAN THAT IS BEING PRESENTED.

AND SO WE THANK YOU ALL STAFF AND TEAM MEMBERS FROM DALLAS ISD WHO REALLY WORKED HARD TO HELP SUPPORT US IN THIS PROCESS, AND WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT THE PLAN THAT'S BEING PRESENTED. THANK YOU, MRS. WALTERS. WE APPRECIATE, FIRST OF ALL, YOUR LEADERSHIP IN LEADING THIS ENDEAVOR, BUT ALSO WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO THE COMMITTEE MEMBERS, THE 15 WHO SERVED AND HELPED US LAND ON RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THIS.

SO NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. IN THIS LAST AND FINAL SLIDE REALLY WALKS US THROUGH WHAT THE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT WERE MADE FROM THIS COMMITTEE.

AND SO IF YOU RECALL, CURRENTLY WE HAVE REALLY TWO MAIN EXEMPTIONS, ONE OF WHICH IS THE START OF SCHOOL, AND THE COMMITTEE IS ALSO RECOMMENDING WE KEEP THIS MOVING FORWARD BECAUSE THIS IS AN IMPORTANT PIECE FOR US FOR MULTIPLE REASONS.

IN ADDITION, THE OTHER EXEMPTION THAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE AND WE'RE RECOMMENDING TO MOVE FORWARD WITH IS TEACHER CERTIFICATION IN THE AREA OF CTE AND DUAL CREDIT SO THAT WE CAN OFFER COURSEWORK TO OUR STUDENTS WHERE THERE MAY NOT BE A CERTIFIED TEACHER.

AND THEN AS WE LOOK TO THE FUTURE, OBVIOUSLY THERE ARE OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS YOU CAN SEE IN GREEN. THERE ARE MULTIPLE ONE OR TEACHER CERTIFICATION, FIRST LANGUAGES OTHER THAN ENGLISH. THERE'S AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US IN DALLAS ISD TO FIND WAYS TO SECURE TEACHERS TEACHING SPANISH, FRENCH, GERMAN, MANDARIN, ET CETERA.

AND WITH THAT, WE WANT TO TELL YOU THAT THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE BILINGUAL TEACHERS AT THE

[00:50:01]

ELEMENTARY GRADE LEVELS. THIS SHOULD INCLUDE SECOND LANGUAGE TEACHERS.

AND SO THIS WILL GIVE US AN OPPORTUNITY TO SECURE TEACHERS WHERE WE CAN'T.

WE'RE NOT ABLE TO FIND SOME IN SOME CASES, ALSO IN THE VISUAL, VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS SPACES WHERE THERE MAY NOT BE A TEACHER WHO IS CERTIFIED IN A PARTICULAR AREA, BUT THEY'RE VERY, VERY WELL STEEPED IN THEIR CONTENT, LIKE FOR, FOR EXAMPLE, SOMEBODY WHO WAS IN THE OPERA THEY MIGHT WANT TO COME AND TEACH AS PART OF A SECOND CAREER.

THAT'S AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US.

AND THEN FINALLY, OUT OF STATE EXEMPTION, WHICH WOULD BE RECIPROCITY.

MEANING IF A TEACHER IS CERTIFIED OUT OF STATE WITHIN A GIVEN STATE, LET'S SAY OKLAHOMA, THEY WOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO COME AND COME TO DALLAS ISD AND NOT HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE TEACHER ASSESSMENT PROCESS BECAUSE THEY ALREADY THEY WOULD BE CERTIFIED IN THAT GIVEN STATE. AND THEN THE LAST RECOMMENDATION THAT'S BEING MADE IS COMPETENCY BASED EDUCATION, WHICH ESSENTIALLY ALLOWS OUR STUDENTS IN OUR COMPREHENSIVE HIGH SCHOOLS TO ACCELERATE IF THEY ARE OFF TRACK.

AND THEN IN ADDITION, WE WE WOULD USE THIS IN THE VIRTUAL SCHOOL TO ALLOW OUR STUDENTS TO ADVANCE AT THEIR PARTICULAR RATE THAT WOULD THAT WOULD BE BEST SUITED TO THEM.

SO THOSE ARE THE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR EXEMPTIONS.

THAT'S ALL. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR THAT PRESENTATION, TRUSTEES, ARE THERE QUESTIONS WE'LL BEGIN WITH TRUSTEE MICCICHE FOLLOWED BY TRUSTEE MARSHALL, FOLLOWED BY TRUSTEE CARREON. YES, DEREK, I'D LIKE TO GO BACK TO THAT FIRST CHART.

I GUESS IT'S THE THIRD PAGE, FOURTH PAGE, LOT OF PICTURES HERE BEFORE WE GET TO THAT.

SO I WANTED TO ASK YOU ABOUT THE MATH PORTION OF THIS CHART.

AND AM I READING THIS CORRECTLY THAT THE INTERCESSION CAMPUSES HAVE DONE HAVE SHOWN LOWER GROWTH THAN THE BASE CALENDAR CUT SCHOOLS.

THIS IS SHOWING THE PERCENT OF STUDENTS IN THE TWO HIGHEST GROWTH CATEGORIES, SO THERE'S FIVE TOTAL SO THEY'RE QUINTILES.

SO YES, AND THE TWO HIGHEST, THEY HAVE ABOUT A POINT LESS IN TERMS OF STUDENTS ACHIEVING THOSE TWO LEVELS.

DO WE HAVE ANY THEORY AS TO WHY THAT'S THE CASE? YES, PART OF THIS IS OUR FOCUS.

THE MATH INTERCESSION WEEK OCCURRED AFTER THESE ASSESSMENT ADMINISTRATIONS, SO WE THINK THIS WILL START TO CHANGE THROUGHOUT THE SPRING.

OK. AND IS IT ALSO POSSIBLE THAT THE THE STUDENTS WHO ARE IN THE DIFFERENT CAMPUSES ARE AT DIFFERENT LEVELS.

IT COULD BE. OUR TEAMS HAVE TRIED TO MATCH THE CAMPUSES AS CLOSELY AS POSSIBLE FROM A DEMOGRAPHIC STANDPOINT AND AN ACADEMIC STATUS STANDPOINT AS WELL.

BUT THE OTHER THING TO CALL OUT HERE IS THIS IS SHOWING THE ENTIRE INTERCESSION CAMPUS, NOT JUST THOSE STUDENTS WHO ARE COMING TO THE EXTRA DAYS.

AND SO IN FURTHER UPDATES, WE'LL BE ABLE TO DISAGGREGATE THAT MORE DIRECTLY.

OKAY, SO THE BOTTOM LINE IS IT'S STILL TOO EARLY TO TELL.

ABSOLUTELY. BUT YOU'RE STILL OPTIMISTIC THAT WE'LL SEE SOME YES, SOME PROGRESS.

OK. AND THEN ON DISTRICT OF INNOVATION, THAT'S GREAT.

I'M GLAD IT'S GOING SO SMOOTHLY THIS TIME AROUND.

AND I DO THINK THE THE COMPANY BASE EXCEPTION IS A REALLY, REALLY BIG ADDITION.

SO OBVIOUSLY, I'M GOING TO SUPPORT THAT.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE MICCICHE.

TRUSTEE MARSHALL. THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT. I WANT TO PICK UP ON BOTH THOSE THEMES.

[INAUDIBLE] I'LL BE BRIEF, THRILLED THAT IT'S GOING SMOOTHLY.

THANKS FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP AND VOLUNTEERING TO LEAD THE COMMITTEE AND I AGREE WITH ALL YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS. SO, DEREK, I WANT TO TALK ABOUT SLIDE FOUR TO WHERE DAN LEFT OFF.

I GET THAT IT'S EARLY, BUT THIS IS UNDERWHELMING.

FIRST, I WANT TO MAKE SURE I'M READING THE CHART, RIGHT? SO THE COMPARISON? WHAT YOU'RE CALLING THE COMPARISON BASED CALENDAR CAMPUSES.

FROM ONE FROM THE CHART ON THE LEFT TO THE CHART ON THE RIGHT IS THAT THE SAME GROUP OF SCHOOLS BY CALENDAR TYPES? SO THERE'S ONE SET OF COMPARISON FOR SCHOOL THEY REDESIGN.

THERE'S ANOTHER COMPARISON SET FOR INTERCESSION.

WHAT WHAT IS IT ABOUT LIKE LET'S LET'S IGNORE SCHOOL DAY REDESIGN AND INTERCESSION AND JUST TALK ABOUT THE COMPARISON SETS.

WHY IS WHY IS THERE SUCH A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE COMPARISON BASED CALENDAR CAMPUSES IN READING AND MATH JUST WITH THE COMPARISON SINCE? YOU'RE LOOKING AT THIRTY ONE POINT TWO COMPARED TO THIRTY SIX POINT FIVE.

NO, I'M LOOKING AT TWENTY NINE POINT FIVE IN COMPARISON TO THIRTY ONE POINT TWO AND THEN

[00:55:01]

THIRTY SIX POINT FIVE.

THOSE ARE ALL DIFFERENT CAMPUSES, SO IT'S A DIFFERENT BUCKET OF CAMPUSES IN THE SCHOOL DAY COMPARISON AND THE INTERCESSION CAMPUS, SO THEY'RE NOT THE SAME CAMPUSES IN EACH OF THOSE THINGS.

ARE WE CLEAR? WE'RE CLEAR, LET ME ASK IT A DIFFERENT WAY.

HOW DID YOU CHOOSE WHICH WHICH CAMPUSES TO PUT IN EACH COMPARISON BUCKET? THIS IS A BIT NUANCED, BUT JUST LIKE WE COMPARE CAMPUSES FOR CAMPUS EXCELLENCE INITIATIVES LIKE OUR CEI COMPARISONS FOR GROWTH, OUR EVALUATION AND ASSESSMENT TEAM LOOKED AT DEMOGRAPHIC DATA AND THEY LOOK AT STUDENT PROFILES AND THEY MATCH THOSE TO BE AS SIMILAR AS POSSIBLE.

SO DOES THAT MEAN IF I WENT BACK AND LOOKED AT THE FIVE QUINTILE SPLIT BECAUSE YOU'RE ONLY SHOWING TWO QUINTILES HERE, IF I WENT AND LOOKED AT THE FIVE QUINTILES SPLIT BETWEEN THE COMPARISON BASED CALENDAR CAMPUSES IN THE INTERCESSION CAMPUSES BEFORE THIS STARTED THAT THEY WOULD HAVE THE SAME SPLITS BY QUINTILE.

THEY WOULDN'T BE IDENTICAL, BUT THEY SHOULD BE FAIRLY SIMILAR.

OK, SO YOU WANT ME TO IGNORE THE DELTA BETWEEN THE COMPARISON CAMPUSES? I DON'T KNOW WHAT DELTA YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, TRUSTEE MARSHALL.

I'M CONFUSED AS I'M NOT CONFUSED.

I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE SAYING MATHEMATICALLY, BUT ON THE CHART, ON THE RIGHT, IN MATH, YOU HAVE THIRTY EIGHT POINT TWO FOR THE COMPARISON BASED CALENDAR CAMPUSES AND THEN YOU HAVE THE INTERCESSION CAMPUSES OBVIOUSLY GOING DOWN BY 1.2 IN COMPARISON TO THEIR OWN BASE CALENDAR CAMPUS.

BUT REALLY, THEY'RE THREE POINTS DOWN FROM THE COMPARISON BASED CALENDAR CAMPUSES, WHICH I GET ARE DIFFERENT CAMPUSES.

BUT I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT, DID YOU PUT THE UNDERPERFORMING CAMPUSES AND ONE OF THOSE COMPARISON SETS OR DID YOU LIKE, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? LIKE, DID YOU WEIGHT ONE OF THE LIKE, THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE TWO DIFFERENT CONTROL GROUPS MAKES ME WONDER WHETHER YOU PUT THE THE MOST UNDERPERFORMING CAMPUSES INTO ONE CONTROL GROUP AND THEN ARTIFICIALLY INCREASED THE OTHER CONTROL GROUP BECAUSE THAT'S A PRETTY BIG DELTA BETWEEN THE CONTROL GROUPS.

YEAH, IT'S ALSO IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THE SCALE HERE.

SO THERE'S FIVE SCHOOL DAY REDESIGN CAMPUSES, SO THAT COMPARISON GROUP IS MUCH SMALLER THAN THE FORTY ONE COMPARISON GROUP FOR INTERCESSION.

SO YOU GET INDIVIDUAL CAMPUS VARIABILITY A BIT MORE.

OK, MAYBE IT'D BE EASIER IF YOU SHOWED ME THE CAMPUSES THAT DID ONE OF THOSE GROUPS BECAUSE THIS.

WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ONE POINT SPREADS BETWEEN THE MATH COMPARISON GROUPS WITH WITH THEIR RESPECTIVE PEER.

THAT YOU'VE GOT A BIGGER DELTA IN THE CONTROL GROUPS THAN YOU DO IN THE IN THE DELTA BETWEEN EACH CONTROL GROUPS AND ITS AND ITS PEER.

WHICH, YOU KNOW, STATISTICALLY THAT'S CONCERNING.

I MEAN, IT MAKES ME WONDER IF THE CONTROL GROUPS THEMSELVES HAVE BEEN HAVE BEEN TILTED, SO I WON'T BELABOR THAT, BUT I'D LIKE TO I'D LIKE TO SEE THE DATA ON THAT.

AND I GUESS I'M CONCERNED ABOUT THE LACK OF MOVEMENT HERE.

YOU KNOW, I HEARD YOU.

I THINK THAT'S A REALLY GOOD EXPLANATION ON THE THE INTERCESSION MATH PERFORMANCE THAT YOU GAVE TRUSTEE MICCICHE.

IF WE HAVEN'T ACTUALLY DONE THE THE INTERVENTION ON MATH, THEN IT MAKES SENSE THAT.

YOU KNOW, IT'S STILL TOO EARLY TO ASSESS IT, BUT THEN IT BEGS THE QUESTION OF WHY IT'S DOWN AT ALL INSTEAD OF FLAT.

SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT WHAT'S GOING ON IN READING.

AND THAT'S ONLY A 0.6 PERCENT INCREASE THAT'S ROUNDING ERROR.

HAVE YOU DONE THE READING INTERCESSION? YEAH, THAT THAT INTERCESSION HAPPENED IN NOVEMBER.

THIS COMPARES ASSESSMENTS THAT WERE TAKEN IN SEPTEMBER IN JANUARY, SO THAT IS ACCOUNTED FOR TO SOME EXTENT.

THIS SHOWS ALL STUDENTS AT THE INTERCESSION CALENDAR, AND THAT IS AN IMPORTANT POINT THAT I MAY NOT HAVE CLARIFIED ENOUGH.

SO ALL TEN THOUSAND KIDS WHO GO TO AN INTERCESSION SCHOOL ARE IN THIS DATA POINT.

ONLY A PORTION OF THEM ARE ACTUALLY COMING TO THE EXTRA INTERCESSION WEEK, SO NOT ALL HAVE BENEFITED FROM THAT.

AND RIGHT NOW, IF YOU HAVEN'T ATTENDED INTERCESSION, YOU'VE ACTUALLY GONE TO SCHOOL FIVE DAYS LESS THAN YOUR BASE CALENDAR PEERS.

SO THE TIME BUILDS OVER TIME, AND WE'VE ALWAYS EXPECTED TO SEE MORE IMPACT IN YEAR TWO THAN WE WILL IN YEAR ONE.

WELL, AND PRESUMABLY THAT WOULD SHOW ITSELF IF YOU INCLUDED THE BOTTOM QUINTILES LIKE THE OTHER. I REALLY DON'T LIKE THIS CHART FORMAT FOR A LOT OF REASONS.

I MEAN, YOU CUT OFF THE THREE BOTTOM QUARTILES, WHICH YOU KNOW, TO YOUR POINT, YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN A GREATER DECLINE ON THE INTERCESSION CAMPUSES FOR THE LOWER QUARTILES BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T GONE TO SCHOOL AS MANY DAYS.

AND IDEALLY, YOU'D CUT ALL THIS BY ATTENDANCE, RIGHT?

[01:00:01]

LIKE, YOU NEED TO ONLY BE LOOKING AT THE KIDS THAT SHOWED UP.

SO I JUST WANT TO SEE THE DATA SET FOR THIS, BECAUSE THIS IS NOT HOW I WOULD LIKE THIS DATA DEPICTED GOING FORWARD, IT'S OVERWHELMINGLY CONFUSING AND IT ALSO DOESN'T SHOW ANY POSITIVE MOMENTUM.

SO. I HOPE IT'S TOO EARLY, BUT I WILL TELL YOU, I WAS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST OUTSPOKEN SUPPORTERS OF THIS IDEA, AND THIS IS CONCERNING TO ME THAT WE HAVEN'T SEEN MORE MOVEMENT QUICKLY. REMIND ME WHAT WE'RE SPENDING ON THIS FROM A BUDGET PERSPECTIVE, THE ALLOCATED BUDGET PER YEAR IS TWENTY FIVE MILLION AND WE WILL LIKELY COME IN IN THE 16 RANGE.

MAYBE 16 MILLION BUCKS FOR A 0.6 PERCENT LIFT.

YOU CAN'T GET THAT IN SIX MONTHS, TRUSTEE MARSHALL I'VE, IT'S A TWO YEAR IMPLEMENTATION.

I MEAN, YOU KNOW, WE GOT TO SEE MORE MOVEMENT THAN THIS, SO I'D LIKE TO HAVE A CONVERSATION OFFLINE ABOUT THIS.

HAPPY TOO.

THANK YOU, TRUSTEE MARSHALL.

TRUSTEE CARREON, FOLLOWED BY TRUSTEE GARCIA.

YEAH, YEAH, JUST THANK YOU TRUSTEE MARSHALL REALLY ASKED A LOT OF THE QUESTIONS THAT I HAD. I SHARE SOME OF THE CONCERNS IS PRETTY SOBERING.

THE DATA WE'RE LOOKING AT, BUT I RECOGNIZE IT'S EARLY AND AND WE HAVE WE HAVE TIME TO GO. BUT I DO WANT A SECOND THAT I THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THIS TO US HERE EARLY AND GIVING US AN UPDATE AT THIS POINT.

BUT IT IS AGAIN A LITTLE LITTLE CONCERNING.

AND THEN I ALSO JUST WANT TO ADD ANY DATA SETS.

I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO SEE THOSE I HAD AT THE EXACT SAME QUESTIONS THAT TRUSTEE MARSHALL HAD AS TO WHY, WHY CERTAIN COLUMNS THERE I WOULD EXPECT THEM TO BE.

EITHER THE SAME OR VERY SIMILAR IN TERMS OF PERCENTAGES.

I HAD A QUESTION REGARDING.

REDESIGN THE BIWEEKLY HALF DAYS.

AND AM I UNDERSTAND THAT DURING THE I'VE, I'M A LITTLE BIT CONFUSED BECAUSE I'VE HEARD, AT LEAST IN MY CONFUSE MYSELF, I'VE HEARD DIFFERENT THINGS THAT WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH THE BYE WEEK, THE HALF DAYS IS IT.

IS IT MORE A KIND OF A PLANNING TIME? IS IT KIND OF A SMALL GROUP INSTRUCTION TIME? OR THEN I ALSO THOUGHT AT ONE POINT I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT WE WERE SOME OF OUR OUT-OF-SCHOOL TIME PARTNERS WERE IN OUR REDESIGN SCHOOLS AND USING THAT TIME AS KIND OF KIND OF A ENRICHMENT OF SORTS.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE I GOT ALL THESE DIFFERENT IDEAS OF WHAT'S HAPPENING AND IS NOT TO SAY THAT ALL THREE AREN'T HAPPENING.

SO I GUESS. SO CAN YOU CLARIFY THAT FOR ME? YEAH. ALL THREE OF THOSE THINGS ARE TRUE.

OK? THE TWO MIDDLE SCHOOLS ARE DOING THE HALF DAY MODEL.

SO IN THE MORNING, STUDENTS ARE ON CAMPUS AND THEY'RE GETTING A MIX OF SMALL GROUP INSTRUCTION AND SOME EXPLORATION AND ENRICHMENT OPPORTUNITIES, AND THEN THEY GO HOME AFTER LUNCH. THE TEACHERS USE THAT TIME ONE WEEK FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT, AND THE NEXT TIME THEY HAVE IT WOULD BE INDIVIDUAL TEACHER PLANNING.

OKAY. OKAY. AND THEN IN THE AFTERNOON, IN THE AFTERNOON, IT'S SMALL GROUP INSTRUCTION.

NO, THE AFTERNOON STUDENTS ARE AT HOME.

THAT IS, THEY HAVE THE AFTERNOON OFF ON THOSE HALF DAYS.

SO I GUESS. OH, SO ARE THERE ANY STUDENTS ON CAMPUS IN THE AFTERNOON DURING HALF OF THE DAY? NO. OK.

OK. ALL RIGHT. AND SO I GUESS SO IN THE MORNING.

ALL STUDENTS ARE PRESENT AND REDESIGN ON THOSE BIWEEKLY HALF DAYS.

IT'S YES, IT'S NOT LIKE AN INTERCESSION SITUATION WHERE ONLY CERTAIN STUDENTS ARE INVITED ON THOSE HALF DAYS TO PARTICIPATE.

THAT'S RIGHT, IT'S A IT'S A REGULAR DAY OF SCHOOL FOR EVERY STUDENT.

OK, GOOD. THANK YOU.

THAT WAS MY MAIN QUESTION ON DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION, I JUST WANT TO THANK THE TEAM FOR BRINGING THAT FORWARD, SUPER SUPPORTIVE OF ALL THE THINGS AND THE THE ADDITIONAL ITEMS THAT WE'VE ADDED AND I WANT TO THANK THE COMMUNITY FOR PARTICIPATING AND HELPING US GET TO THIS POINT. SO YEAH, THANK YOU, EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU, TRUSTEE CARREON.

TRUSTEE GARCIA. THANK YOU, PRESIDENT MACKEY.

GOOD AFTERNOON, THANK YOU FOR THIS PRESENTATION.

I SHARE THOUGHTS AND CONCERNS WITH BOTH TRUSTEE CARREON, TRUSTEE MARSHALL.

JUST A QUICK FEW THINGS THAT I WANTED TO GO THROUGH REALLY QUICKLY IS I REMEMBER THE PREVIOUS PRESENTATION THAT WE HAD ABOUT ATTENDANCE.

I THINK VERY SPECIFIC POINT WAS MADE ABOUT STRUGGLING WITH FRIDAY ATTENDANCE.

YOU JUST MADE A POINT ABOUT STUDENTS POTENTIALLY LOSING UP TO FIVE DAYS IF YOU WERE ATTENDING THE INNER SESSION DAYS.

WHAT IS OUR CURRENT ATTENDANCE RATE FOR THOSE ON AVERAGE FOR THOSE INNER SESSION CALENDARS? YEAH, WE DON'T HAVE IT IN THIS DECK, BUT WE HAVE LOOKED AT ATTENDANCE ACROSS ALL THREE CALENDAR MODELS AND THEY'RE BASICALLY THE SAME.

[01:05:01]

SO IT'S IN THE LIKE NINETY THREE TO NINETY FIVE PERCENT RANGE.

ON AVERAGE, WE DO NOT SEE ANY EVIDENCE THAT THE CALENDAR ITSELF IS IMPACTING STUDENT ATTENDANCE. OK.

AND UM, ANOTHER POINT THAT I WANTED TO ASK IS I SEE THE SURVEY TAKING A LOOK AT SLIDE WHAT SLIDE NUMBERS THIS SLIDE EIGHT.

WE'VE GOT THE SURVEY FROM FACULTY AND STAFF ON SCHOOL REDESIGN.

JUST TO CLARIFY, YOU MENTIONED THERE WERE FIVE ONLY FIVE.

YES, FIVE SCHOOLS. OKAY, I'M HAPPY TO SEE THESE.

WELL, I'M GLAD TO SEE THAT WE'VE SURVEYED TEACHERS, FACULTY AND STAFF.

ANOTHER POINT I'D LIKE TO MAKE IS I'D WANT TO SEE THE INCLUSION OF PARENTS.

POTENTIALLY IN THESE SURVEYS, I KNOW THIS IS A MIDDLE OF THE YEAR, BUT I'D BE INTERESTED TO SEE THIS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE YEAR AND END OF YEAR WITH PARENTS AS WELL.

I'M CONCERNED, THOUGH, TO SEE THAT THIRTY ONE PERCENT OF TEACHERS DON'T NECESSARILY FEEL THAT THE NEW SCHEDULE HAS BEEN BENEFICIAL FOR STUDENTS.

I KNOW THAT, AND IT'S ALSO TO SAY THAT IT'S TOO SOON TO TELL FOR A LARGER GROUP.

AND THEN, OF COURSE, WE SEE THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN TEACHERS AND THEIR FACULTY AND STAFF.

AND SO I'D LIKE TO KNOW WHAT WE ARE LOOKING TO DO DIFFERENTLY MOVING FORWARD, EVEN AS WE COMPLETE THE SCHOOL YEAR.

DO YOU HAVE ANY PRELIMINARY THOUGHTS OR ANYTHING THAT'S CURRENTLY ONGOING? ABSOLUTELY. SO FIRST, ON THE FAMILY SIDE, WE ARE GOING TO BE SURVEYING FAMILIES ACROSS BOTH CALENDAR MODELS IN ABOUT A MONTH, ACTUALLY, BECAUSE THAT VOICE HAS ALWAYS BEEN IMPORTANT THROUGHOUT THIS PROCESS.

FOR THE FIVE SCHOOL DAY REDESIGN SCHOOLS, THE CAMPUSES ARE HAVING FACILITATED CONVERSATIONS WITH THEIR TEAMS OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS TO DIGEST THIS DATA AND COME UP WITH ALTERNATIVES AS NEEDED.

PART OF WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT ARE HOW THAT BACK TO TRUSTEE CARREON QUESTIONS FOR THE HALF DAYS AND THEN FOR THE ONES WHO DON'T HAVE THE HALF DAYS, HOW THEY USE THOSE FRIDAY TIMES WHERE STUDENTS ARE AT HOME TO MAKE SURE THAT'S BEING MAXIMIZED IN THE WAY THAT TEACHERS THINK IS MOST BENEFICIAL.

SO THOSE ADJUSTMENTS CAN HAPPEN THIS YEAR.

AND THEN WE'RE ACTUALLY LOOKING AT SOME TWEAKS AND WHERE THOSE DAYS FALL IN THE CALENDAR NEXT YEAR BASED ON FEEDBACK WE'RE HEARING FROM THE SCHOOLS, SO IT WON'T CHANGE THE CALENDAR STRUCTURE.

IT MAY JUST CHANGE WHEN THOSE TEACHER PLANNING DAYS OCCUR.

OKAY. OK, THANK YOU.

I SEE, THOUGH, TO HEAR THE NEXT SLIDE CONTINUES WITH SCHOOL DAY REDESIGN IN REPORTS OF BURNOUT AND POTENTIAL TURNOVER.

HOW ARE WE ADDRESSING THAT WASTE TO STAFF JUNE INTERCESSION AS NEXT STEPS? CAN YOU SAY THE LAST PART AGAIN? YES, SO I'M JUST COMMENTING ON, I ACKNOWLEDGE SCHOOL DAY REDESIGN REPORTS CHALLENGES ARE REPORTS OF BURNOUT AND POTENTIAL TURNOVER AT THE END OF THE YEAR.

TAKING A LOOK AT THE NEXT COLUMN FOR INTERCESSION, EXPLORING ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO STAFF JUNE INTERCESSION CAN YOU TELL ME MORE ABOUT THIS? YEAH. SO THE JUNE INTERCESSION, WE'VE HEARD FROM TEACHERS ALREADY THAT FEWER OF THEM ARE INTERESTED IN WORKING THAT WEEK AND FEWER STUDENTS ARE INTERESTED IN COMING THAT WEEK.

CAMPUSES ARE ESSENTIALLY WORKING ON VERY DIFFERENT PLANS THAN WE HAD ORIGINALLY MADE FOR JUNE, WHEN WE FIRST ADOPTED THIS CALENDAR LAST YEAR.

WE THOUGHT WE WOULD HAVE A THIRD ADMINISTRATION OF STAR.

THAT'S NOT GOING TO BE THE CASE ANYMORE.

AND LIKE GREAT PROMOTION POLICIES ARE GOING TO BE A BIT DIFFERENT DUE TO LEGISLATIVE CHANGES. SO THE FUNCTION OF THAT JUNE INTERCESSION CAN CHANGE.

AND SO CAMPUSES ARE GOING TO BE ABLE TO BE MUCH MORE TARGETED IN WHO THEY'RE RECRUITING AND SERVING IN THAT WEEK.

AND THOSE PLANS ARE BEING MADE RIGHT NOW SO THAT WE CAN ADJUST FOR ANTICIPATED STAFFING CHALLENGES AND ENSURE THAT THE RIGHT SET OF STUDENTS ARE ACTUALLY THE ONES COMING.

OK. OK.

THOSE ARE MY QUESTIONS ON THE FIRST SUBJECT, LET ME GET TO THE SECOND ONE, THE SUGAR MOTIVATION TIMELINE. I RECALL REALLY QUICKLY THAT ONE OF MY TOURS OF THE CAREER INSTITUTES, WE HAD A CONVERSATION ABOUT FORMER CAREER PROFESSIONALS WHO THEN BECAME CERTIFIED TO TEACH AT OUR CAREER INSTITUTE'S CT COURSES AND OTHERS, WITH EXCEPTIONS THROUGH THE DISTRICT. IS THAT PART OF THE DISTRICT OF INNOVATION EXEMPTIONS THAT WERE MADE? YES, WE HAVE ABOUT 60 PERCENT OF OUR TEACHERS IN WHO ARE THROUGH DOI ARE AT OUR CAREER INSTITUTES. OK.

AND THEN FOLLOWING THAT QUESTION IS APPROXIMATELY HOW MANY YOU MENTIONED GAVE YOU THE NUMBER ONE MORE TIME. I'M SORRY.

SAY AGAIN, YOU SAID 60 PERCENT OF THOSE AT CAREER INSTITUTES FELL UNDER THE EXEMPTIONS FROM THE [INAUDIBLE] YES, MA'AM.

TAKING IT DISTRICT WIDE, APPROXIMATELY WHAT NUMBER DOES THAT REPRESENT? WE HAVE A TOTAL OF 52 TEACHERS DISTRICT WIDE WHO FOR CTE, WHO HAVE GONE THROUGH THE DOI PROCESS FOR EXEMPTION.

AND HOW MANY DO YOU FORESEE MOVING FORWARD? YOU KNOW, OBVIOUSLY IT'S AN AS NEEDED BASIS.

I'LL TELL YOU. THE GOOD NEWS IS WE'VE HAD VERY LITTLE ATTRITION IN THIS SPACE OVER THE FOUR YEARS WE'VE SEEN BOARD ABOUT NINETY FIVE PERCENT STAY RATE.

OK, AND FOR HOW WHAT'S THE TIMELINE ON THIS [INAUDIBLE] INNOVATION, HOW LONG WILL IT RENEW FOR? IT IS A FIVE YEAR EXEMPTION, SO ESSENTIALLY WE DID IT FOUR AND A HALF YEARS LITTLE OVER FOUR AND A HALF YEARS AGO.

[01:10:01]

AND SO THIS WOULD TAKE US THROUGH FEBRUARY OF TWENTY SEVEN.

OK. OK, THAT CONCLUDES MY QUESTION.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU TRUSTEE GARCIA.

TRUSTEE HENRY. OH, SORRY, THANK YOU, PRESIDENT MACKEY.

FIRST, I WANT TO START WITH OUR COMMUNITY MEMBERS, ESPECIALLY IN THE DOI.

I THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME SERVING AND EVEN TAKING THE TIME THIS EVENING.

TO SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS WITH US.

I'M DEEPLY APPRECIATED.

WE'VE HAD CONVERSATION ABOUT DOI SEPARATELY, SO I HAVE NO QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FROM.

DEFINITELY SUPPORTIVE OF WHAT YOU'RE DOING THERE.

I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS ON THE FIRST PART OF THIS SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT REGARDING INSTRUCTIONAL EQUITY, I WANT TO ECHO THE COMMENTS STARTED BY TRUSTEE MARSHALL, KIND OF COSIGNED BY TRUSTEE CARREON AND TRUSTEE GARCIA, I WANT TO ADD MY SIGNATURE TO THAT COSIGN. I'VE BEEN LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING THE INTERCESSION NUMBERS.

I THINK MAYBE IT'S NOT AS CLEAR, AND I THINK YOU'LL WORK WITH TRUSTEE MARSHALL TO PRESENT THAT. ALSO HAVE A CONCERN ON LIKE THE RACIAL EQUITY ASPECT OF THIS, SO WHEN WE PULL IT UP AND I WAS IN THE BACK, BUT I DID HEAR THE REPORTS.

SO IT'S STARTED ON THE SLIDE.

THREE, I GUESS, WE'VE INSTRUCTIONAL EQUITY AND TIE IT TO RACIAL EQUITY WITH THE INTERCESSION, IT'S NOT SOMETHING I'VE SEEN BEFORE AND THE OTHER INSTRUCTIONAL EQUITY DISCUSSION WE'VE HAD, I KNOW WE'VE TALKED ABOUT TEACHERS WHERE TEACHERS ARE PLACED, THE QUALITY OF TEACHERS, YOU KNOW, DO WE HAVE HIGH PERFORMING TEACHERS AT OUR HBC SCHOOLS? I'VE HEARD A LOT OF DISCUSSIONS AROUND INSTRUCTIONAL EQUITY.

THIS IS MY FIRST TIME SEEING A CONNECTION BETWEEN INTERCESSION AND RACIAL EQUITY.

SO I DON'T KNOW IF WE'RE JUST TRYING TO DISCUSS INTERCESSION ON THE RACIAL EQUITY, BUT I'M SURPRISED TO SEE IT DISCUSSED IN THIS WAY, AND I STRUGGLE ALSO TO SEE THE CONNECTION, ESPECIALLY GIVEN THE NUMBERS THAT TRUSTEE MARSHALL WAS GOING THROUGH.

SO I'LL LEAVE THAT AS OPEN QUESTION FOR A RESPONSE, BUT BEFORE I DO THAT, I WENT BACK AND LOOKED AT SOME OF THE OTHER RACIAL EQUITY PRESENTATIONS AND LIKE GOING BACK TO FEBRUARY 2021, WE RECEIVED AN UPDATE ON PROGRAMMATIC EQUITY.

IF YOU COULD LEAVE IT ON THAT SLIDE, PLEASE, AND I THINK TRUSTEE MACKEY WAS THE FIRST ONE THAT LIKED THIS OUTCOME GOAL INPUT OUTPUT STRUCTURE, WHICH I LOVE A LOT, BUT THAT OUTCOME GOAL WHEN WE TALK ABOUT EXPLORE WAYS TO ADD TIME FROM INSTRUCTION TO ACCELERATE STUDENT LEARNING. THAT'S THE GOAL FOR THIS INTERSESSION, I GUESS NOW COUNTS INTO RACIAL EQUITY COMPARED TO WHAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT WITH DISCIPLINE, THE ANNUAL OUTCOME GOAL FOR WHAT WE HEARD AND WHAT EVER MONTH I SAID EARLIER SAYS ELIMINATE THE GAP BETWEEN AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDENTS EXPERIENCE LEVEL ONE OUT-OF-SCHOOL SUSPENSION COMPARED TO THEIR PEERS GROUPS BY JUNE 2022 MUCH MORE OF A CLEAR GOAL.

I MEAN, EXPLORE, TO ME, IS JUST NOT A GOAL.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT GOAL SPECIFICALLY IS.

SO, I STRUGGLE WITH THIS BEING COUCHED UNDER RACIAL EQUITY, AND THEN IF WE DO COUCH UNDER RACIAL EQUITY, I'M REALLY STRUGGLING WITH THE GOALS, INPUTS AND OUTPUTS.

THE INPUTS ON THIS SLIDE FROM A PREVIOUS BOARD MEMBER IS VERY CLEAR.

CREATE A DISCIPLINED TRACKING PROCESS, REVISE THE STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT A LOT OF THE STUFF WE'VE DONE, WHICH IS GREAT, INCREASED MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES AND THEN THE OUTPUTS IS A SLIDE THAT HAS THE OUT-OF-SCHOOL SUSPENSION DISAGGREGATED BY DIFFERENT DEMOGRAPHICS , AND YOU KNOW, IT'S NOT A ONE OFF, EVERY RACIAL EQUITY REPORT THAT I WENT BACK RIGHT NOW LOOKING AT, IT'S VERY CLEAR.

IT'S ALSO ALIGNED WITH WHAT WE FIRST TALKED ABOUT, AND THAT'S ALMOST BACK TO DECEMBER 2020, SO I'M GOING TO TAKE MY TIME.

LET ME FIND THAT. MAYBE IT'S GOING TO TAKE ME A WHILE, BUT, YOU KNOW, WHEN WE FIRST, YOU KNOW, CAME UP WITH THE PILLARS AND WE REVISED AE LOCAL INSTRUCTIONAL EQUITY, WAS FOCUSED ON RECRUITING AND RETAINING HIGH PERFORMING TEACHERS AND TARGETED LITERACY SUPPORT, PROGRAMMATIC EQUITY WITH MENTAL HEALTH, ACCESS TO MAGNET AND CHOICE SCHOOLS WERE DOING ACCESS TO AP.

IT'S ALL VERY CLEAR AND DEFINED.

IT SEEMS LIKE FOR SOME REASON WE'VE PIVOTED, AND SO I'M REALLY STRUGGLING WITH THAT.

FRANKLY, WANT TO KNOW WHY WE'RE DOING THAT.

SO WHY ARE THE GOALS SO ABSTRACT? AND ALSO, WHY HAVE WE INSERTED INTERCESSION AS A RACIAL EQUITY PILLAR WHEN THAT WASN'T ANYWHERE IN THE LAST TWO YEARS OF DISCUSSION AROUND THIS, IN MY OPINION? MAYBE I MISSED SOMETHING. SO THANK YOU FOR THE QUESTION, TRUSTEE HENRY, AND I'M GOING TO TAKE US BACK ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO.

WE DID AN IN-DEPTH STUDY ON DATA AND JUST ASSESSING DISTRICTWIDE DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF

[01:15:04]

PROGRAMMING IN DALLAS ISD, AND WHEN AT THE END OF THAT PROCESS, WE DETERMINED THAT THERE WERE ACTIONS THAT NEEDED TO BE TAKEN, AND JUST LIKE YOU ARTICULATED, WE WERE LOOKING AT ACCESS TO MAGNET SCHOOLS, ADVANCED ACADEMICS, STUDENTS WHO HAVE TEACHERS WHO ARE PROFICIENT ONE OR GREATER, BUT ALSO IN THAT PROCESS, AND WE SHARED WITH THE BOARD THE FINAL DOCUMENT.

WE TALKED ABOUT SUSTAINING PROGRAMS, AND SO ONE IN PARTICULAR WAS ACE, BECAUSE THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT WAS WORKING.

WE WERE GOING TO CONTINUE TO DO THAT.

WE'RE GOING TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS WHEN NEEDED.

THE SECOND THAT WE TALKED ABOUT WAS EXPANDING, AND SO THOSE ARE PROGRAMS THAT WE WANT TO ACTUALLY EXPAND MAKE LARGER PUT MORE RESOURCES IN, AND THEN THE THIRD BUCKET WAS EXPLORE , AND SO IF YOU RECALL, WE HAD STAKEHOLDERS OF DISTRICT EMPLOYEES AS WELL AS COMMUNITY MEMBERS, AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE WANTED TO WE TALKED ABOUT, WE LOOKED AT BEST PRACTICES AND WE TALKED ABOUT GIVING STUDENTS MORE TIME, AND IF THAT WAS AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMING, IF THAT WAS TUTORING, IF THAT WAS CHANGING THE CALENDAR AND IT JUST SO HAPPENED AT THE SAME TIME, COVID CAME TO BE THE PANDEMIC AND WE WORKED TOGETHER AND WE WERE WE WORKED TO TALK ABOUT EXPANDING TIME ON THE CALENDARS, AND THAT IS HOW THIS PIECE CAME TO BE AS PART OF RACIAL EQUITY BECAUSE IT WAS PART OF OUR INITIAL DEEP DOVE, BUT WE WERE GOING INTO EXPLORING AT A LATER TIME AND SHARON, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WANT TO ADD.

I DON'T WANT TO WASTE TIME ON THAT BECAUSE YOU'RE RIGHT.

SO I APOLOGIZE FOR THAT.

NOW I'M GOING BACK TO THIS AND I NEED TO SEE THE ORIGINAL DOCUMENT.

I'M JUST LOOKING AT A BOARD PRESENTATION, BUT THE ONE THAT I'M LOOKING AT NOW, WHICH I DON'T KNOW WHAT MONTH THIS IS FROM.

WE GET A LOT OF THESE, WHICH IS A GOOD THING.

UM, IT'S UNDER THE EXPLORE BUCKET, AND IT SAYS, LIKE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS HAVE FORTY FIVE MINUTES OF DAILY PLANNING.

MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOLS HAVE TWO FORTY FIVE MINUTE PERIODS, ADDITIONAL PLANNING PERIOD AT ALL ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS.

I GUESS I'M JUST LOOKING FOR SOMETHING MORE CONCRETE THAN THIS ADDED WITH THE NUMBERS THAT TRUSTEE MARSHALL WAS DISSECTING.

SO YEAH, I APOLOGIZE FOR NOT SEEING THAT ASPECT, BUT I'M STILL STRUGGLING WITH HOW THIS HELPS US AS A BOARD MAKE AN INFORMED DECISION ON WHETHER THIS IS CREATING EQUITY OR NOT.

I FEEL LIKE ONE, THAT GOLD PROBABLY SHOULD BE CLEARER, BUT TWO, THE DATA THAT WE GOT THAT, I GUESS, WOULD GO UNDER PROGRESS TODAY, I STRUGGLED WITH THIS AS WELL.

AND TRUSTEE HENRY, I COMPLETELY HEAR WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, AND I'M JUST GOING TO REITERATE WHAT DERRICK SAID AT THE ONSET THAT WE'RE NOT AT A PLACE WHERE WE CAN DRAW CONCLUSIONS BECAUSE WE'RE SO EARLY IN, BUT I DO TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION WHAT YOU SAID AND APPRECIATE IT, AND WE'LL MAKE SURE THAT WE BRING THAT NEXT TIME.

WHEN CAN WE DRAW CONCLUSIONS? WE SET THIS UP, SO BASICALLY A YEAR FROM NOW, WE WILL ASK THE BOARD TO CONSIDER EITHER EXPANDING THIS WORK, STOPPING THIS WORK OR SCALING UP OR DOWN THIS WORK.

SO YOU COULD EXPECT NEXT FEBRUARY, WE'LL BE ASKING YOU TO SPECIFICALLY VOTE ON CALENDARS , BUT THROUGH THAT VOTE, YOU ARE MAKING A DECISION ON WHETHER THIS HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL.

OK. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, TRUSTEE HENRY. TRUSTEE JOHNSON.

YES, THANK YOU. I'D LIKE TO ASK A QUESTION HERE.

UH. MY COMMUNITY IS ASKING QUESTIONS, SO I'D LIKE TO ACKNOWLEDGE SOME OF THEIR QUESTIONS.

PLEASE EXPLAIN THE APPLICATION PROCESS FOR INNOVATION, OPENING AND ENDING.

FOR THE DISTRICT OF INNOVATION PROCESS? YEAH. SO ESSENTIALLY AS A DISTRICT WE BASICALLY BROUGHT FORTH TO THE BOARD TO TALK ABOUT THE TIMELINE PROCESS, BUT ESSENTIALLY WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS THEN CONVENE A COMMITTEE WITH REPRESENTATION FROM EACH TRUSTEE AND THE SUPERINTENDENT AS WELL.

AND THEN OVER A PERIOD OF SEVERAL WEEKS, THE COMMITTEE MET MULTIPLE TIMES AND TALKED ABOUT THE CONSIDERATIONS FOR THE EXEMPTIONS THAT DALLAS ISD COULD BENEFIT FROM, AND SO ONCE THE GROUP COMMITTEE LANDED ON THOSE EXEMPTIONS, THEN THE EXEMPTIONS WERE TAKEN TO THE DISTRICT ADVISORY COMMITTEE, THEN THE DISTRICT ADVISORY COMMITTEE THEN HAD TO BASICALLY SIGN OFF AND AGREE THAT THESE EXEMPTIONS WERE THE APPROPRIATE EXEMPTIONS FOR DALLAS ISD,

[01:20:04]

THEN OF COURSE, COMING TO THIS BOARD FOR FINAL APPROVAL.

DO YOU TARGET ALL CAMPUSES THAT HAVE CTE PROGRAMS WITH SUPPORT? YES, SIR. OKAY, I WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK WITH YOU BECAUSE OVER AT ROOSEVELT, WE HAVEN'T GOTTEN SUPPORT WITH OUR CTE PROGRAM.

THAT'S BEEN A BIG ISSUE FOR MY COMMUNITY, AND SO I WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK WITH YOU OFFLINE AND SEE WHAT WE CAN DO TO TURN THAT AROUND BECAUSE WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE PUTTING PROGRAMS AT SCHOOLS, ESPECIALLY IN THE SOUTHERN SECTION OF DISTRICT 5.

I EXPECT THOSE PROGRAMS TO BE FULLY FUNDED AND FULLY OPERATING WITH STRONG SUPPORT, AND THAT'S NOT HAPPENING OVER AT ROOSEVELT, AND I NEED THAT TO HAPPEN.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE JOHNSON.

WE'LL BEGIN SECOND ROUND WITH TRUSTEE MARSHALL.

YEAH, I JUST WANTED TO CLARIFY, BUILDING OFF OF TRUSTEE HENRY'S QUESTION TO YOU, DEREK, ABOUT THE TIMELINE.

WHEN WE APPROVED THE BUDGET FOR THIS, WE DID TWO YEARS, RIGHT? THAT'S RIGHT. OK, SO FROM A SEQUENCE OF EVENTS PERSPECTIVE, YOU'RE PLANNING ON DELIVERING A READOUT ON THE SUCCESS OF THIS PROGRAM PRIOR TO THE NUMBER ONE, THE VOTE ON A CALENDAR AND NUMBER TWO, ANY THE APPROVAL OF ANY BUDGET DOLLARS FOR THE THIRD YEAR.

WE'RE NOT CONTEMPLATING A THIRD YEAR AT ALL AT THIS POINT UNTIL WE CAN SHOW YOU MORE EVIDENCE AND YOU TAKE A DECISION ON THE CALENDARS.

GOOD ANSWER, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, TRUSTEE MARSHALL.

GLAD I GOT SOMETHING RIGHT FOR YOU.

ABOUT TIME. [CHUCKLING] BAD DAY FOR ME, DOC.

SEEING, NO OTHER QUESTIONS HERE, WE WILL NOW MOVE ON TO ITEM 3.02, THE STUDENT OUTCOME GOALS AND GPMS 1.1-1.3 AND 5.1, 5.2.

THANK YOU, PRESIDENT MACKEY, TRUSTEES, DR.

HINOJOSA, I AM GOING TO--IS THERE A CLICKER HERE? OK, THANK YOU. I'M GOING TO BE SHARING THE STUDENT OUTCOME GOALS FOR GPM.

THANK YOU. 1.1-1.3 AND 5.1 AND 5.2.

SO, I'LL START FIRST WITH JUST A QUICK SUMMARY OF WHERE WE ARE.

SO FIRST, SPEAKING ABOUT STAAR DOMAIN 1 PROJECTIONS FROM OUR FALL ACPS.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT TO HAVE SOME CONTEXT.

WE DID NOT HAVE ACP RESULTS TO REPORT LAST YEAR.

SO AS WE LOOK AT THIS YEAR'S RESULTS, WE SURPASSED THE TARGET FROM 2020-2021, WHICH WAS REVISED, AS YOU WILL RECALL FOR DOMAIN 1 ACP AND STUDENTS AT THE MEETS PLUS LEVEL.

BUT WE DID FALL SHORT OF THE UNREVISED TARGET THAT WAS SET FOR '21-22.

WE DEFINITELY SEE THAT THESE RESULTS DEMONSTRATE THE ONGOING DECLINE IN PERFORMANCE DUE TO THE PANDEMIC RELATED DISRUPTIONS THAT OUR STUDENTS HAVE EXPERIENCED.

WHEN WE DIG IN ON THE SECOND SET OF GOALS THAT WE'RE GOING TO BE LOOKING AT, GRADES SIX THROUGH EIGHT STAAR DOMAIN 1 PROJECTIONS FROM FALL ACP.

WE SAW THE SIMILAR TREND THAT ALL STUDENTS IN SIXTH THROUGH EIGHT AND AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDENTS, AS WE SAW FOR ALL FALL ACP.

AGAIN, DOMAIN 1 PERFORMANCE FOR ALL STUDENTS AND FOR AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDENTS SURPASSED LAST YEAR'S TARGET BUT FELL SHORT OF THE TARGET THAT WE HAD SET FOR THIS YEAR.

SO I'LL GO INTO MORE DETAIL HERE JUST SO THAT WE CAN SEE THE PERFORMANCE AGAINST THE PREVIOUS TARGET AND THEN THE CURRENT YEAR TARGET.

AS YOU CAN SEE HERE FOR GPM 1.1, WHICH IS LOOKING AT THE STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT ON OUR ACP DOMAIN 1 CALCULATION FOR ALL KIDS THE TARGET FOR TWO YEARS AGO WAS FORTY TWO.

WE DID HIT FORTY FOUR, BUT WE FELL SHORT OF THE UNREVISED TARGET FOR THIS CURRENT YEAR, WHICH WAS 50.

WHEN WE LOOK AT GPM, 1.1, WHICH IS FOR AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT ACROSS ALL GRADES. LOOKING AT THE ACP DOMAIN 1, THE REVISED TARGET FOR 2021 WAS FOR 34.

WE DID HIT 35 BUT FELL SHORT OF THE 44, THE UNREVISED TARGET FOR THIS YEAR, AND THEN FINALLY, ON 1.3, WHICH IS LOOKING AT STUDENTS AT THE MEETS PERFORMANCE LEVEL OR ABOVE THE TARGET FOR TWO YEARS AGO THAT HAD BEEN REVISED WAS 30.

WE SURPASSED THAT AT 32.4, BUT FELL SHORT AT OF THE CURRENT YEAR TARGET AT 37.

AS WE LOOK AT THE NEXT SET OF GOALS, 5.1 AND 5.2, YOU'LL SEE THE SIMILAR TREND.

OUR MIDDLE GRADES STUDENTS ACP DOMAIN 1 SURPASSED TWO YEARS AGO'S TARGET OF 40.

WE LANDED AT 42, FALLING SHORT OF THIS YEAR'S TARGET BY TWO POINTS, AND THEN FOR AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDENTS, WE SURPASSED THE GOAL FROM TWO YEARS AGO, WHICH WAS 33.

WE HIT 34 BUT FELL SHORT OF THE 39.

SO I'D LIKE TO TALK NOW ABOUT HOW WE ARE TARGETING OUR SUPPORTS TO HELP ACCELERATE LEARNING FOR OUR STUDENTS, GIVEN THE DECLINE IN PERFORMANCE THAT WE'VE SEEN IN THE TIME THAT WE'VE EXPERIENCED DISRUPTIONS OVER THE LAST 24 MONTHS.

[01:25:01]

OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS AND SCHOOL LEADERSHIP ARE TARGETING THE SUPPORT THAT WE HAVE FOR OUR TIER THREE CAMPUSES.

THEY HAVE AT THIS POINT DEVELOPED ACTION PLANS FOR ALL CAMPUSES AND ARE IN THE PROCESS OF CONDUCTING SUPPORT WALKS TO GIVE COACHING AND ADDITIONAL SUPPORTS TO OUR PRINCIPALS AND THUS TO OUR TEACHERS.

WE HAVE TARGETED PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT THAT IS GOING ON THROUGHOUT THE SPRING ON CONTENT, ON INSTRUCTIONAL TOOLS AND ON ACCELERATION STRATEGIES.

WE HAVE NOW RELEASED COUNTDOWN TO STAAR LESSONS THAT ARE ENABLED TEACHERS TO FOCUS ON THE HIGHEST NEED AND HIGHEST YIELD INSTRUCTIONAL AREAS.

THESE ARE DROP IN LESSONS THAT CAN BE INCLUDED.

I'VE SEEN MANY CLASSROOMS ALREADY USING THESE LESSONS.

WE ARE PROGRESS MONITORING VERY INTENSIVELY.

PRINCIPALS AND CAMPUS TEAMS HAVE BEEN RECEIVING TARGETED COACHING ON DATA ANALYSIS, ON CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT, ON SMALL GROUP WORK, AND THEN FINALLY, FOR STAFFING.

WE HAVE BEEN VERY FOCUSED ON MAKING SURE THAT WE HAVE APPROPRIATE LEVELS OF STAFFING, PARTICULARLY GIVEN THE EXTREME DISRUPTIONS OF JANUARY DUE TO THE OMICRON COVID VIRUS AND THE IMPACT THAT IT HAD ON OUR SCHOOLS.

WE'VE INCREASED OUR SUBSTITUTE INCENTIVE TO HELP BRING MORE SUBSTITUTES INTO OUR CLASSROOMS, AND WE'VE ALSO RECEIVED AND SECURED PERMISSION FROM THE FEDERAL DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION TO ASSIGN FEDERALLY FUNDED CENTRAL STAFF TO SUPPORT OUR SCHOOLS, AND WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO DO THAT WITHOUT ANY RESTRICTIONS ON THE USE OF THEIR TIME AS LONG AS THEY ARE WORKING IN TITLE I SCHOOLS.

AT THIS POINT, WE HAVE 77 OUT OF 81 REQUESTS FULLY FILLED FOR PUSH IN SUPPORT AND.

WE ARE WORKING DILIGENTLY TO GET TO THE FULL 81 REQUESTS OF ADDITIONAL STAFF SUPPORT FOR OUR SCHOOLS. IN TERMS OF NEXT STEPS, WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE THE FULL COURT PRESS ON GETTING FOLKS INTO OUR SCHOOLS TO HELP OUT SCALING UP THOSE INTENSIVE INSTRUCTIONAL SUPPORTS THAT WILL INCLUDE THINGS LIKE SATURDAY SCHOOL, OUR TUTORING EFFORTS, INTERVENTION SUPPORT WITH CENTRAL STAFF.

WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO HOST DATA ROUNDTABLES WITH OUR TIER THREE CAMPUSES REALLY LOOKING AT HOW WE CAN MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE TARGETED ACTION PLANS AND THE SUPPORT TO IMPLEMENT THEM, AND WE JUST RECEIVED OUR MIDDLE OF THE YEAR MAP DATA TO HELP GUIDE FURTHER INSTRUCTIONAL ACTION STEPS FOR ACCELERATED IMPROVEMENT.

SO I'D BE HAPPY TO TAKE ANY QUESTIONS OR HAVE MY TEAM ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU. TRUSTEES WE'LL BEGIN WITH QUESTIONS.

WE'LL START WITH TRUSTEE MARSHALL.

SO THANKS FOR THE PRESENTATION.

OBVIOUSLY, THIS ISN'T WHERE WE WANT TO BE.

I DON'T THINK WE NEED TO BELABOR THAT, AND YOU KNOW, WE'RE STILL IN THE MIDST OF THIS PANDEMIC AND HOPEFULLY ON THE TAIL END OF IT, BUT WE HAVE MADE SOME PROGRESS DURING IT, WHICH IS COMMENDABLE.

I THINK, I'M STATING THE CLEAR MATH, OBVIOUS THING HERE, BUT MISSING THE 21-22 TARGETS MAKES THE 22-23 TARGETS EVEN HARDER TO HIT, AND I THINK YOU TALKED ELOQUENTLY ABOUT SEVERAL TARGETED SUPPORTS AND THINGS THAT WE'RE DOING TO TRY TO BRIDGE THAT GAP, BUT PHILOSOPHICALLY, THERE'S KIND OF TWO APPROACHES THAT COULD BE TAKEN FOR THOSE 22-23 TARGETS AND BEYOND.

WE CAN EITHER RECOGNIZE THAT NOW WE'RE FURTHER AWAY FROM THAT TARGET AND, YOU KNOW, ALLOCATE ADDITIONAL RESOURCES AND INTERVENTION STRATEGIES TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HIT IT OR WE CAN TRY TO RESET THAT GOAL.

HAVE YOU GUYS, AS A LEADERSHIP TEAM, DECIDED TO DO THE FIRST ONE RATHER THAN THE SECOND ONE OR SAID ANOTHER WAY, SHOULD I EXPECT THAT YOU GUYS AT SOME POINT ARE GOING TO COME BACK TO US AND ASK FOR A REVISION TO THE GOALS? OR ARE YOU CONTENT TO LEAVING THOSE GOALS WHERE THEY ARE AND STRIVING TO REACH THEM DESPITE THAT THEY'RE FURTHER AWAY THAN THEY WERE? SO I THINK THERE ARE TWO THINGS THAT WE SHOULD CONSIDER COLLECTIVELY.

CERTAINLY, OUR INTENTION CURRENTLY IS TO ALLOCATE AS MANY RESOURCES AS POSSIBLE TO ACCELERATE LEARNING FOR STUDENTS.

WE KNOW THAT EVERY STEP AWAY FROM THESE GOALS MEANS THAT FEWER KIDS ARE REACHING TARGETS THAT ARE ESSENTIAL FOR THEIR LONG TERM SUCCESS.

I DO WANT TO NAME, IN ADDITION TO THE SUPPORTS THAT WE'VE DISCUSSED IN THIS REPORT, WE STILL ARE ALLOCATING SIGNIFICANT ESSER DOLLARS ABOVE FORMULA TO SCHOOLS.

I BELIEVE IF I'M CORRECT, IT'S UPWARDS OF THREE HUNDRED ADDITIONAL ALLOCATIONS TO SCHOOLS ABOVE FORMULA. IS THAT CORRECT? THE NUMBER OF ADDITIONAL ALLOCATIONS ABOVE FORMULA TO SCHOOLS.

IT'LL BE SIX HUNDRED AND FIFTY TOTAL ADDITIONAL ALLOCATIONS TO SCHOOLS THAT ARE ABOVE FORMULA TO HELP ENSURE THAT IF THEY HAVE REDUCTIONS IN STUDENT NUMBERS, THEY ARE NOT NEEDING TO REDUCE THE EXACT NUMBER OF TEACHERS.

THERE MAY BE SOME SLIGHT REDUCTIONS, BUT WE REALLY ARE TRYING TO USE ALL OF THOSE EXTRA DOLLARS TO KEEP AS WHOLE AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE WE KNOW THE LEARNING NEEDS ARE SO HIGH.

[01:30:02]

AND THEN IN ADDITION TO THAT, WE ARE CONTINUING TO USE OUR ESSENTIAL RESOURCES.

I DO JUST WANT TO NAME THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS SIGNIFICANT IN THAT WE CAN USE SOME OF THE MOST HIGHLY SKILLED TITLE I CENTRAL STAFF WITH NO LIMITATIONS AS LONG AS THEY ARE WORKING IN TITLE I SCHOOLS TO HELP ACCELERATE LEARNING, AND SO THIS WILL BE AN ONGOING REGULAR ASSIGNMENT. THEY DON'T SHOW UP AT OUR OFFICE, THEY SHOW UP AT A SCHOOL FOR A REGULAR ASSIGNMENT TO DO INTENSIVE SUPPORT.

SO RIGHT NOW, OUR GOAL IS ALL HANDS ON DECK.

THERE WILL BE SOME CHANGES TO STAAR TESTING THAT I THINK ONCE WE HAVE THOSE CHANGES AND WE ARE MORE AWARE OF IT, A LARGER CONVERSATION ABOUT WHERE WE ARE WITH THAT WILL BE IMPORTANT. SO I, TOO, AM BULLISH ON A LOT OF THE STRATEGIES THAT YOU GUYS HAVE TALKED ABOUT, BUT I'M NOT ENTIRELY SURE THAT YOU ANSWERED MY QUESTION.

[CHUCKLING] YEAH, I MEAN, I THINK RIGHT NOW WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO PUSH.

I THINK REALISTICALLY, WE SHOULD BE PREPARED TO SEE SLIPPAGE AGAINST THE METRIC.

I DON'T KNOW IF THAT MEANS YOU CHANGE IT, BUT I DO THINK WE HAVE TO JUST PUT IT INTO THE CURRENT CONTEXT. YEAH, THAT'S FAIR.

I GUESS I THINK WE'VE BEEN DOWN THIS ROAD BEFORE AND WE REVISED GOALS, AND, YOU KNOW, IT LOOKS LIKE THE TARGETS THAT WE REVISED TO, ALTHOUGH WE HAVEN'T MET THEM IN THE SUBSEQUENT YEAR, WE DID FOR MOST OF THESE, MEET WHAT WE RESET THE GOAL AT, YOU KNOW, FOR '20-21.

SO I JUST WANT TO, YOU KNOW, KIND OF BE TRANSPARENT WITH YOU GUYS THAT I FOR ONE AND I'M JUST ONE TRUSTEE, BUT I DON'T HAVE AN APPETITE TO HAVE A GOAL CONVERSATION AGAIN.

I THINK THE CONVERSATION NEEDS TO CENTER AROUND THESE INTERVENTION STRATEGIES THAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT SEEING HOW SUCCESSFUL THOSE CAN BE LIFTING OUR KIDS UP.

SO I WANT TO MAKE SURE WE'RE FOCUSING ON THAT RATHER THAN ANOTHER REVISION.

THANKS. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE MARSHALL.

TRUSTEES, ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS HERE? THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR YOUR PRESENTATION, WE'VE GOT A LOT OF WORK TO DO.

OH, GO AHEAD, TRUSTEE MICCICHE.

WE PROBABLY DON'T HAVE, BUT WHAT I'D LIKE TO SEE AS SOON AS WE DO HAVE IT IS SOME KIND OF COMPARISON DATA TO JUST KIND OF SEE HOW WE'RE DOING, HOW MUCH GROUND WE'VE LOST RELATIVE TO OTHER SIMILAR DISTRICTS, I GUESS, IS STAAR THE ONLY THING WE CAN USE? SO, FORTUNATELY, BECAUSE WE PARTICIPATE IN MAP, MAP HAS A NATIONAL DATASET AS WELL AS MANY, MANY, MANY DISTRICTS IN TEXAS THAT ARE USING MAP.

WE JUST GOT OUR MIDYEAR DATA YESTERDAY, AND SO THE TEAM IS IN THE PROCESS OF DOING SOME ANALYSIS. WE WILL BE ABLE TO BOTH LOOK AT INTERNAL GROWTH AND COMPARATIVE PERFORMANCE USING MAP DATA.

SO WE DEFINITELY CAN COME BACK WITH THAT.

YEAH, DEFINITELY WOULD LIKE TO SEE THAT.

I THINK, YOU KNOW, NATIONALLY, EVERYBODY HAS PROBABLY LOST GROUND.

THAT'S CERTAINLY BEEN THE ASSUMPTION, BUT YOU KNOW HOW'VE WE DONE RELATIVE TO EVERYONE ELSE AND THEN RELATIVE TO, YOU KNOW, DISTRICTS, OUR SIZE RELATIVE TO THE DEMOGRAPHICS IN OUR DISTRICT AND OTHER DISTRICTS.

SO, I THINK THAT WOULD BE REALLY KEY, AND MR. PRESIDENT, IF YOU COULD CONSIDER PLACING THAT ON THE AGENDA AS SOON AS THAT DATA IS AVAILABLE. APPRECIATE IT.

THANKS. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE MICCICHE.

ALL RIGHT, SO THANK YOU FOR THAT, WE'LL NOW MOVE ON TO ITEM 3.03 BOARD OF TRUSTEE COMMITTEE REPORTS. DO WE HAVE ANY TRUSTEE COMMITTEE REPORTS? ALL RIGHT, SO WE'LL MOVE ON TO TRUSTEE REPORTS FOR DISTRICTS ONE THROUGH NINE.

WE'LL START WITH ONE AND GO THROUGH NINE, AND I'LL ASK, IF A TRUSTEE IS NOT HERE AT THE MOMENT, COULD SOMEONE NEXT TO THEM READ THEIR ACCOLADES.

SO, I'LL BEGIN WITH DISTRICT 1 FOR TRUSTEE FLORES.

I DO WANT TO SAY THAT I, WHEN I FIRST MET HIM, HE WAS NINETY ONE YEARS OLD, AND AFTER TALKING TO HIM FOR A WHILE, HE JUST LOOKED AT ME AND SAID, "YOU KNOW, I HAVE AN EIGHTH GRADE EDUCATION, I'M POOR.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT THEY NAMED A SCHOOL AFTER ME?" I JUST LOOKED AT HIM AND SAID, YES, SIR, I CAN. THAT CONCLUDES MY REPORT.

I'M GOING TO SEND A CONGRATULATIONS TO SKYLINE HIGH SCHOOL'S TIFFANY CURRY, WHO RECENTLY TOOK THIRD PLACE AT THE REGIONAL WRESTLING CHAMPIONSHIPS.

SHE IS NOW STATE BOUND.

CONGRATULATIONS AND AWESOME JOB, TIFFANY.

I ALSO WANT TO SALUTE TO ALL THE DISD SCHOOLS WHO ARE CELEBRATING NATIONAL KINDNESS WEEK . THAT IS THIS WEEK, SEVERAL SCHOOLS HAVE HAD SPECIAL ACTIVITIES ALL WEEK LONG, THANKS TO ALL OF OUR STUDENTS AND STAFF WHO ARE COMMITTED TO DEMONSTRATING KINDNESS.

I ALSO WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE YOUNG CHRISTIAN WHITMAN, WHO GAVE HIS SPEECH TODAY AND CONGRATULATE HIM ON WINNING THE MLK ORATORY COMPETITION.

I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE BILLY EARL DADE MIDDLE SCHOOL, WHO WON THE CITY CHAMPIONSHIP LAST NIGHT OVER JL LONG.

SORRY, TRUSTEE MARSHALL.

Y'ALL WON LAST YEAR, RIGHT? OR NO? YEAH, SO YOU GOT IT LAST YEAR.

DADE GOT IT THIS YEAR. CONGRATS TO THE YOUNG BOYS ON THE DADE MIDDLE SCHOOL BASKETBALL TEAM. I WANT TO CONGRATULATE THE SCHOOLS IN DISTRICT 9 THAT MADE THE PLAYOFFS ON OUR GIRLS SIDE THAT WOULD INCLUDE LINCOLN AND SKYLINE, AND ON THE BOYS SIDE, LINCOLN AND THE GREAT JAMES MADISON.

ALREADY TALKED ABOUT NATIONAL COUNCILMAN WEEK.

I WANT TO THANK ALL OF OUR COLLEAGUES ON THE BOARD ACKNOWLEDGING THAT IT WAS BLACK HISTORY MONTH AND I WANT TO READ SOMETHING THAT'S FAIRLY LONG, BUT I'LL READ IT QUICKLY.

BEAR WITH ME.

ACTUALLY, I'M NOT GOING TO READ AT ALL.

SO, I HAVE THE HONOR TO SERVE ON A DISTRICT 9 SEAT, WHICH I THINK HAS A LOT OF HISTORY IN

[01:50:02]

REGARDS THE BLACK LEADERSHIP, BUT I'D BE REMISS IF I DIDN'T ACKNOWLEDGE THE LEADERSHIP OF KATHLEEN JOY GILLIAM, WHO I THINK TRUSTEE FOREMAN IS ALSO FAMILIAR WITH AND IN THE FAMILY. SHE WAS THE FIRST BLACK WOMAN ELECTED TO THE ISD BOARD OF TRUSTEES AND THE FIRST TO SERVE AS BOARD PRESIDENT.

IF I CONTINUE READING, WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THIS IS I'M READING IT OFF A TWITTER PRESENTATION FROM OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT.

SO I REALLY APPRECIATE THE DISTRICT TAKING THE TIME TO INTENTIONALLY ACKNOWLEDGE BLACK LEADERSHIP NOT ONLY IN THE DISTRICT BUT ACROSS THE NATION.

SO I CONTINUE TO READ FROM THE DALLAS ISD WEBSITE.

SHE WAS THE FIRST TO SERVE AS BOARD PRESIDENT.

I HAD THE HONOR TO SERVE AS BOARD PRESIDENT FOR TWO YEARS, SO SHE'S DEFINITELY ONE OF THOSE GIANTS WHOSE SHOULDERS ON WHICH I STAND.

FRIENDS AND FAMILY OF THE LATE MS. GILLIAM HAVE CREATED A MUSEUM IN HER HONOR, AND THE RIBBON CUTTING WILL OCCUR, THE NEW MUSEUM IS PLANNED ON SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 27TH.

THERE'S A LINK ON THE WEBSITE IF YOU WANT MORE DETAILS.

SHE ADVOCATED FOR EDUCATIONAL EQUITY AND EQUALITY IN DALLAS FOR MORE THAN TWO DECADES.

SHE'S A TRAILBLAZER WHO REPEATEDLY OVERCAME RACIAL BARRIERS.

SHE GRADUATED FROM LINCOLN HIGH SCHOOL IN 1948 AND CONTINUED HER EDUCATION AT SOUTHWEST SCHOOL OF BUSINESS, DALLAS COUNTY COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT AND SMU SOUTHERN METHODIST UNIVERSITY, A MEMBER AND PRESIDENT OF THE DALLAS COUNCIL OF COLORED PARENTS AND TEACHERS.

SHE WORKED TIRELESSLY TO OVERCOME OBSTACLES TO RACIAL EQUALITY IN PUBLIC EDUCATION.

AS A MEMBER OF THE DISD BOARD OF TRUSTEES, SHE PLAYED A PIVOTAL ROLE IN THE SCHOOL DESEGREGATION AND EFFORTS TO INCREASE THE HIRING OF MINORITY TEACHERS.

SHE ADVOCATED FOR PARENT EDUCATION AND SOUGHT TO IMPROVE COOPERATION BETWEEN THE SCHOOLS, ADMINISTRATION AND PARENTS.

SHE ASSISTED IN HIRING FOUR SUPERINTENDENTS, INCLUDING THE FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN SUPERINTENDENT.

IN RECOGNITION OF HER MANY ACHIEVEMENTS SHE RECEIVED THE EDUCATION AWARD FROM THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF NEGRO WOMEN AND THEIR FREEDOM JOURNAL HUMANITARIAN AWARD FROM HER ALMA MATER, LINCOLN HIGH SCHOOL. SHE WAS ALSO INDUCTED INTO THE TEXAS BLACK WOMEN'S HALL OF FAME AND THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN EDUCATORS HALL OF FAME.

IN 2008, DISD ESTABLISHED THE KATHLEEN JOY GILLIAM COLLEGIATE ACADEMY IN TRUSTEE FOREMAN DISTRICT, WHICH WAS LOCATED IN A TEMPORARY FACILITY UNTIL A BRAND NEW FACILITY WAS OPENED IN 2011. SO I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE HER LEADERSHIP AND HER TRAILBLAZING AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHEN SHE ADVOCATED FOR THESE THINGS, IT WASN'T IN TIMES LIKE WE HAVE NOW.

SO WHEN WE TALK ABOUT RACIAL EQUITY, IT'S STILL UNCOMFORTABLE NOW.

WHEN SHE TALKED ABOUT IT, THERE WEREN'T A LOT OF ALLIES ON THE BOARD OR IN THE CITY.

SO I JUST WANT TO HONOR HER COURAGE AND HER TRAILBLAZING, AND THAT INCLUDES THE DISTRICT 9 REPORT. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE HENRY.

SO WE WILL NOW MOVE ON TO ITEM FIVE APPROVAL OF THE MINUTES.

ALWAYS REALLY APPRECIATE THE CONSIDERATION OF THE ADMINISTRATION TO HAVE MET WITH US BECAUSE WE DID NOT HAVE A REGULAR BOARD BRIEFING.

SO ALWAYS THANK YOU FOR DEEP DIVING INTO SUBJECTS OF THIS MATTER.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

TRUSTEE FOREMAN. I ALSO HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO DISCUSS AND WHAT I'D LIKE TO SHARE AND JUST TALK ABOUT JUST A LITTLE BIT BECAUSE WE'VE HAD THIS DISCUSSION BEFORE WAS THE FACT THAT THIS WILL BE AN OPT IN INSTEAD OF AN OPT OUT SITUATION.

THAT'S CORRECT. OK, AND MAYBE SOME PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE PAST.

SO CAN YOU JUST EXPAND ON THAT JUST A LITTLE BIT FOR ME? THESE PARTICULAR RESOLUTIONS [INAUDIBLE] WITH THE BOARD, ALLOWING THE SHAC TO CONVENE AND PROVIDE RECOMMENDATIONS ON CURRICULAR MATERIALS CONFORMING LANGUAGE WITH THE EDUCATION CODE. PART OF THE NEW CODE DOES REQUIRE PARENTS TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO OPT IN THROUGH WRITTEN CONSENT RATHER THAN DEFAULTING TO AN OPT OUT.

AND THAT WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO ME THROUGHOUT THIS WHOLE PROCESS.

[02:00:01]

AGENDA 7.04 PULLED BY TRUSTEE FOREMAN.

DO I HAVE A MOTION? MOVE TO APPROVE.

SECOND. IT HAS BEEN MOVED BY TRUSTEE MARSHALL, SECONDED BY TRUSTEE JOHNSON.

IS THERE DISCUSSION? YES.

TRUSTEE FOREMAN. THE AGENDA SAYS THAT TRUSTEE FOREMAN PULLED THIS ALONE.

IS THAT POSSIBLE? IT IS BECAUSE WE DID NOT HAVE A BRIEFING THIS MONTH, AND SO IT WAS ABLE TO HAVE A CONSENT AGENDA RATHER THAN GO THROUGH EVERY ITEM.

THANKS FOR CLARIFYING. THANK YOU, BRIAN, FOR RESPONDING, BUT I GUESS THE QUESTION THAT I STILL HAVE IS YOU TALKED A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IF THE CTE COURSES WERE IN THE SCHOOLS THAT THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO DO THAT IF THEY HAD A TEACHER.

WELL, I THOUGHT THE TEACHER DIDN'T HAVE TO BE CERTIFIED IF WE ARE A DISTRICT OF INNOVATION. WE DO OBVIOUSLY SEEK TO HAVE CERTIFIED TEACHERS, BUT IN INSTANCES WHERE A TEACHER IS NOT CERTIFIED FOR A PARTICULAR AREA, THEN THAT ALLOWS THE OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO THEN SECURE TEACHERS WHO MAY NOT BE CERTIFIED, BUT THEY ALSO HAVE TO MEET SOME CRITERIA WITHIN THAT SELECTION PROCESS.

OK, THE REASON I ASKED THAT QUESTION IS THAT SOME SCHOOLS AND I THINK ENTREPRENEURSHIP IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT I THINK IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT AND YOU WOULD NOT HAVE CERTIFIED TEACHERS FOR THAT, AND YOU BASICALLY SAID JUST TO BE ABLE TO FINISH THEIR PROGRAM OF STUDY THAT THESE COURSES WOULD BE AVAILABLE.

AND I THINK WE SHOULD BE THINKING A LITTLE BIT OUT OF THE BOX IN TERMS OF THINGS LIKE ENTREPRENEURSHIP WITHIN SOME OF THESE COMPREHENSIVE HIGH SCHOOLS.

THEY ARE IN SOME, BUT THEY'RE NOT IN A LOT, AND SO IF WE'RE A DISTRICT OF INNOVATION, I DON'T THINK THE TEACHER NOT HAVING A CERTIFICATION WOULD BE THE--AGREED TRUSTEE FOREMAN.

I WOULD SAY THIS, THE PROGRAMS OF STUDY THAT THE SCHOOLS HAVE ARE BASED UPON THE DECISIONS OF THE PRINCIPAL AND THE RESPECTIVE TEAMS. SO IN INSTANCES WHERE A PRINCIPAL DOES WANT TO OFFER ENTREPRENEURSHIP THAT WOULD FALL ON THE GIVEN PATHWAY OF BUSINESS, FINANCE AND MARKETING, THE PRINCIPAL HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO SELECT THAT PATHWAY AND OFFER THOSE COURSES.

SO, TO YOUR POINT, I DON'T THINK IT'S DUE TO NOT HAVING A CERTIFIED TEACHER OR NOT UTILIZING DISTRICT OF INNOVATION.

I THINK REALLY, IT'S A MATTER OF SELECTION BY THE CAMPUS AND THE RESPECTIVE COMMUNITY.

ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE FOREMAN.

TRUSTEES, ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS HERE? GO AHEAD, TRUSTEE JOHNSON.

DR. LUSK, COME ON BACK.

I THOUGHT I WAS GOING GET AWAY QUICK, SORRY.

[CHUCKLING] I KNOW.

FIRST OF ALL, LET ME SAY THANK YOU FOR THE WORK THAT YOU'RE DOING WITH DISTRICT INNOVATION. CAN YOU KIND OF EXPLAIN IT A LITTLE BIT MORE IN DETAIL? I KNOW WE HAD A CONVERSATION ON THE PHONE, SO IF SOMEONE IS TRYING TO BE A PLUMBER AND WE'RE TALKING ABOUT CERTIFICATIONS, CORRECT? YES, SIR, WE ARE. SO IF A KID IS TRYING TO BE A PLUMBER, I MEAN, WE HAD THIS CONVERSATION WHERE SOMETIMES KIDS WANT TO GO TO COLLEGE, BUT THEY HAVE FAMILY ISSUES THAT PREVENTS THEM FROM GOING IN THAT DIRECTION RIGHT AWAY.

SO HOW DOES THIS HELP THAT PARTICULAR CHILD THAT'S TRYING TO WANT TO GO TO COLLEGE BUT CAN'T GO TO COLLEGE? BUT THIS PARTICULAR PROGRAM ALLOWS THEM TO GET A JOB AND BE CERTIFIED. SO CAN YOU EXPLAIN THAT BECAUSE I WANT OUR COMMUNITY TO HEAR THAT? ABSOLUTELY, SO I THINK IF YOU TAKE THE EXAMPLE.

LIKE AVIATION, FOR EXAMPLE, RIGHT, WE HAVE AVIATION AT OUR CAREER INSTITUTES, RIGHT? AND SO AVIATION IS A SPACE WHERE YOU WOULDN'T NECESSARILY HAVE CLASSROOM TEACHERS GOING TO BECOME INSTRUCTORS TO TEACH AVIATION, RIGHT? AND SO THAT BEING THE CASE, WE'RE VERY FORTUNATE TO HAVE INSTRUCTORS WHO HAVE A LOT OF EXPERIENCE IN THE ACTUAL IN THE FIELD OF AVIATION.

THEY'VE BEEN PILOTS, ET CETERA, AND SO WE'RE ABLE TO SECURE THEM AS TEACHERS THROUGH DISTRICT INNOVATION, IT ALLOWS OUR KIDS TO GET EXPERIENCES THAT THEY OTHERWISE WOULD NOT IF WE DID NOT HAVE DISTRICT INNOVATION.

NOW TALKING ABOUT STUDENTS FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF STUDENT CERTIFICATIONS, OUR STUDENTS BENEFIT FROM THE VERY REASON I JUST EXPLAINED, RIGHT? SO THERE ARE INSTANCES, INSTANCES WHERE A CLASSROOM TEACHER MAYBE WOULDN'T BE AVAILABLE IN A CERTAIN AREA SUCH AS PLUMBING, HVAC, ELECTRICAL, AVIATION, AND WE'RE ABLE TO PROVIDE THAT AS A RESULT OF DISTRICT INNOVATION.

THANK YOU. AGAIN, I'M A FAN OF YOURS.

I THINK YOU'RE DOING AN EXCELLENT JOB.

YOU KNOW, WE'VE GOT SOME THINGS WORKING ON IN DISTRICT 5 CONCERNING AVIATION AND OTHER AREAS. SO I WILL BE SUPPORTING THIS AND THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU'RE DOING FOR KIDS.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE JOHNSON.

SECOND. IT HAS BEEN MOVED BY TRUSTEE MARSHALL SECONDED BY TRUSTEE JOHNSON.

IS THERE DISCUSSION? YES.

TRUSTEE FOREMAN.

GOOD EVENING, TRUSTEE FOREMAN.

GOOD EVENING, [INAUDIBLE], JUST A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS, AND I KNOW I KEEP ASKING THESE QUESTIONS ABOUT TECHNOLOGY AND THE DOLLAR AMOUNT, AND I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND WHY, BECAUSE THERE'S SUCH A LARGE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT WE'RE SPENDING.

AND AGAIN, A CONCERN IS IS THAT OVER THE PAST FIVE YEARS, WE SPENT $11 MILLION.

NOW WE'RE ASKING FOR 84 MILLION DOLLARS OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS.

SO WHAT IS IT THAT WE'RE DOING DIFFERENT THAN WE'VE DONE OVER THE LAST?

[02:10:01]

BECAUSE I CAN REMEMBER ALL OF THIS NETWORK STUFF GOING IN EARLY ON.

SO WHAT ARE WE DOING DIFFERENT? THAT WOULD HAVE US TO JUMP FROM A DELTA OF 11 MILLION OVER FIVE YEARS TO 84 MILLION OVER FIVE? YES, MA'AM, THANK YOU FOR THE QUESTION.

SO WE ARE GEARING UP FOR BASICALLY A COMPLETE REFRESH OF OUR DATA NETWORKS ACROSS THE DISTRICT. THAT WOULD INCLUDE OUR WI-FI, THAT WOULD INCLUDE THE HARDWIRED LAN/WAN LOCAL AND WIDE AREA NETWORKS ACROSS THE CAMPUSES, AND THERE'S REALLY TWO REASONS THAT YOU WOULD SEE THIS INCREASE IN SPEND.

NUMBER ONE, WE'RE DUE BECAUSE THE EQUIPMENT THAT WE HAVE IS PRETTY MUCH END OF LIFE.

SO WE GO ON TYPICALLY FIVE SIX YEAR CYCLES ON THIS TYPE OF EQUIPMENT, AND SO BECAUSE OF THE PASSAGE OF THE 2020 BOND, WE NOW HAVE FUNDS TO INVEST, AND BECAUSE WE'RE DUE ON OUR E-RATE CYCLE, WE CAN REINVEST AND AFFORD A MAJOR REFRESH LIKE THIS GOING FORWARD.

YOU KNOW, I'M STILL CONCERNED.

I HEAR YOU, BUT I DON'T HEAR YOU BECAUSE IF OVER FIVE YEARS WE DIDN'T REFRESH, WE DIDN'T KNOW REFRESH ON EQUIPMENT.

WE DID SOME REFRESH MOST OF OUR WORK OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS WAS IN OUR DATA CENTERS.

AND SO WE WERE UPGRADING SOME OF THAT CORE EQUIPMENT IN OUR DATA CENTERS, BUT NOW WE'RE GEARING UP FOR A CAMPUS REFRESH AND THERE'S JUST MORE LOCATIONS AND MORE EQUIPMENT, WHICH IS WHAT DRIVES THOSE NUMBERS UP.

MORE EQUIPMENT FOR THE CAMPUSES.

YES, MA'AM, JUST NOW, WE CAN'T EVEN GET CAMERAS FOR THE CAMPUSES.

WELL, WE'RE WORKING ON THAT AS A IS A SEPARATE INITIATIVE, BUT YES, WITH TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY CAMPUSES WE HAVE WE HAVE A LOT OF A LOT OF NETWORK EQUIPMENT OUT THERE TO REPLACE.

I'M STILL CONCERNED, BUT THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONSE, YES, MA'AM.

THANK YOU, TRUSTEE FOREMAN TRUSTEES IS THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS HERE? ALL RIGHT, SEEING NONE. TRUSTEE AS YOU MAY CAST YOUR VOTE.

DO I HAVE A MOTION. MOTION TO APPROVE.

SECOND. IT HAS BEEN MOVED BY TRUSTEE MARSHALL, SECONDED BY TRUSTEE JOHNSON.

IS THERE DISCUSSION? YES, TRUSTEE FOREMAN.

MY FAVORITE PERSON IS HEADED UP HERE.

YOU'RE STILL MY FAVORITE TO.

THERE'S NOTHING SHY ABOUT ME, DWAYNE.

YES, MA'AM. SO I WAS TRYING TO UNDERSTAND YOUR RESPONSE.

OKAY. CAN YOU KIND OF WALK ME THROUGH? RIGHT. SO THROUGHOUT THE YEAR AS THEY SETTLE, MEANING THE COUNTY SETTLES PROTESTS FROM PREVIOUS YEARS, THERE'S THEIR REFUNDS THAT HAPPEN, AND THIS WHAT YOU WERE LOOKING AT ON THE REPORT HAPPENED TO BE ONE OF THE REFUNDS FOR THIS FISCAL YEAR AS OPPOSED IN THIS FISCAL YEAR, NOT IN COMPARISON TO LAST YEAR.

RIGHT? OK, AND EVEN THOUGH WE HADN'T UPLOADED AT THE TIME I DID THE TRACKER, YOU'LL SEE THE EXACT OPPOSITE IN JANUARY, SO YOU'LL SEE WE'LL COLLECT 1.2 MILLION IN BACK TAX IN THIS YEAR AND HAVE A REFUND OF 857 MILLION, AND SO, YOU KNOW, DEPENDING ON WHEN THE PROTEST IS SETTLE, IS WHEN THE COUNTY DOES THE REFUND, BUT IN COMPARISON TO ACTUAL DOLLARS COLLECTED, WE ARE AHEAD OF WHERE WE WERE LAST YEAR AT THE EXACT SAME TIME THROUGH DECEMBER AND BECAUSE OF THAT WE'RE AHEAD OF WHERE WE ARE IN THE BUDGET.

SO WHEN I LOOK AT THAT BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU KNOW, BECAUSE OF THE CURRENT CLIMATE , AND HOW PEOPLE ARE STRUGGLING, I WOULD ASSUME THAT TAXES A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE NOT ABLE TO PAY THEIR TAXES, AND SO THAT DOESN'T SEEM THAT FROM WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, THAT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE THE SITUATION. WE'RE TRACKING ALONG IN COMPARISON TO THE PREVIOUS YEAR VERY WELL. YES, MA'AM.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE FOREMAN.

[02:15:01]

TRUSTEE MICCICHE. DWAYNE YOU MENTIONED THAT CASES GET SETTLED AND THE DISTRICT HAS NO PART IN THAT PROCESS THAT IS DONE BY THE DALLAS COUNTY.

OCTOBER 1ST, 2021 TO DECEMBER 31ST 2021, PULLED BY TRUSTEES FOREMAN AND MICCICHE..

DO I HAVE A MOTION TO APPROVE? IT HAS BEEN MOVED BY TRUSTEE MARSHALL, SECONDED BY TRUSTEE JOHNSON IS THERE DISCUSSION.

YES/ TRUSTEE FOREMAN.

DO YOU WANT TO GO FIRST TRUSTEE MICCICHE SINCE I'M ALWAYS RUNNING MY MOUTH.

NO, I THINK THIS.

I THINK HIS RESPONSE WAS GOOD.

IT WAS GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU.

OKAY, SO I DO HAVE A QUESTION.

I WAS TRYING TO BE FAIR, SO DON'T EVER SAY I'M NOT FAIR, BUT DWAYNE, YOUR ANSWER WAS BASICALLY WE LOSE ON ONE END, BUT WE PICK UP ON ANOTHER.

WELL, I TRIED TO EXPLAIN IN THE GENERAL FUND.

YES, IT DOES COST US BECAUSE WE ARE NOT EARNING INTEREST, BUT WHEN WE SELL BONDS, OBVIOUSLY WE SELL THEM AT A CHEAPER RATE BECAUSE THE RATES ARE DOWN.

SO. HOW OFTEN ARE WE SELLING BONDS? I'M SORRY. HOW OFTEN ARE WE SELLING BONDS? WE'RE ACTUALLY ONLY RIGHT NOW.

WE'RE ONLY SELLING ONCE A YEAR.

SO WE JUST HAD A SALE THAT WE CLOSED ON THIS WEEK.

BUT WE TRACK THE INTEREST RATES ON A MONTHLY BASIS.

THESE ARE THESE ARE A QUARTER.

QUARTERLY? YES. OK, AND SO THE DOLLARS ACTUALLY HLEP OFFSET, IS WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, RIGHT? THEY OFFSET.

WHAT YOU SEE HERE, THIS IS THE INVESTMENT REPORT ON WHAT WE'RE EARNING.

SO WHEN WE SELL BONDS, THAT'S WHAT THE TAXPAYERS WOULD PAY IN THEIR TAXES FOR THE INTEREST PORTION OF OUR INCOME MIGHT BE CONFUSING YOU.

OKAY. LET ME TRY TO EXPLAIN MYSELF.

INTEREST RATES ARE DOWN.

YES, MA'AM, AND SO OUR INVESTMENTS, WE'RE LOSING MONEY.

WE'RE NOT LOSING MONEY, WE'RE JUST NOT EARNING AS MUCH.

WE'RE NOT EARNING MONEY.

YES, MA'AM. LOSING THAT'S LOSING TO ME WHEN I LOOK AT MY 401K, WHEN THAT MONEY GO DOWN, I JUST LOST SOMETHING, BUT WHAT YOU'RE SAYING IS BECAUSE WHEN WE SELL BONDS, WE GET TO SELL THEM AT A HIGHER INTEREST RATE.

WE STILL WE SELL THEM AT A LOWER INTEREST RATE, SO IT SAVES THE TAXPAYERS.

YOU KNOW, IF WE'RE ONLY PAYING TWO, IF WE'RE ONLY PAYING TWO PERCENT OR TWO AND A HALF ON THE DEBT, OBVIOUSLY WE'RE PAYING LESS INTEREST THAN IF IT WAS FOUR PERCENT.

YEAH, I GET IT.

OK. I DON'T MIX THE TWO AND THE WAY YOU'RE DOING IT, IT'S YOU'RE IN THIS BUCKET OVER HERE. I'M MAKING MORE MONEY IN THIS BUCKET OVER HERE.

I'M LOSING. SO IT'S A WASH.

THAT'S WHAT I SEE. OK, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, TRUSTEE FOREMAN. TRUSTEES, ANY OTHER QUESTIONS ON THIS ITEM? TRUSTEE MICCICHE. NO, I JUST LIKE TO REGISTER A COMPLAINT THAT THE VOTING, THE VOTING IS NOT COMING UP FAST ENOUGH.

I HAVE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THAT.

OK, THANK YOU, TRUSTEES.

SEEING NO OTHER QUESTIONS HERE YOU MAY NOW CAST YOUR VOTE.

TRUSTEE MICCICHE, WOULD YOU PLEASE VOTE? HE'S NOT FAST ENOUGH.

THE MOTION PASSES 8-0.

THANK YOU, TRUSTEES. YOU'VE JUST ADOPTED THE MOTION APPROVING TO RATIFY THE FIRST QUARTER INVESTMENT REPORT FOR THE PERIOD OCTOBER 1ST, 2021 TO DECEMBER 31, 2021.

[8.07 Consider and Take Possible Action to Ratify the Amount of Bills, Claims and Accounts for December 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021 (Consent Item 7.24, Pulled by Trustees Joyce Foreman and Dan Micciche)]

DECEMBER 1ST, 2021 TO DECEMBER 31, 2021.

CONSENT ITEM 7.24 PULLED BY TRUSTEES FOREMAN AND MICCICHE.

DO I HAVE A MOTION? MOVE TO APPROVE.

IT HAS BEEN MOVED BY TRUSTEE MARSHALL.

SECONDED BY TRUSTEE JOHNSON IS THERE DISCUSSION.

YES, TRUSTEE FOREMAN.

SO DWAYNE, EXCUSE ME, WHEN I LOOKED AT THIS ITEM ON THE BILLS AND CLAIMS AND THE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND WAS IN THERE, WHICH WE ORIGINALLY ALLOCATED FOR REDISTRICTING.

[02:20:04]

AND THEN I WENT BACK AND FOUND THAT THE TOTAL BILLS FOR REDISTRICTING WAS FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS.

SO WHY ARE WE JUST SHOWING THE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS? YES, MA'AM. SO WHEN WE DEVELOPED THE BUDGET I HAD, WE HAD ESTIMATED IN THE ASSIGNED FUND BALANCE $150000 FOR THE REDISTRICTING COST WHEN THE BOARD TOOK ACTION TO NAME TWO.

THEN WE REPURPOSED ANOTHER ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY, SO THE TOTAL BUDGET WAS THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND. NOW THAT WE HAVE WHAT THE ACTUAL IS GOING TO BE, THAT'S WHY I HAD THE BUDGET AMENDMENT FOR ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY TO COVER WHAT WAS ACTUAL, WHICH WAS THE FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN THOUSAND, AND I HAD A CUSHION IN THERE IN CASE THERE WERE ANY OTHER STRAGGLING INVOICES THAT WOULD COME IN FROM ANY OF THE VENDORS THAT WERE UTILIZED.

SO I GUESS MY OTHER QUESTION IS WHO AUTHORIZED THE ADDITIONAL HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND? WELL, IT WAS TWO PHASES WOULD BE ONE IS WE MOVE THE MONEY FROM AN EXISTING BUDGET THAT WASN'T GOING TO BE UTILIZED AND THROUGH BUDGET AMENDMENT AND THE NON IN THE EXPENSE NEUTRAL THAT THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN INCORPORATED IN THOSE ITEMS. SO CAN ADMINISTRATION MOVE MONEY FOR A PROJECT WITHOUT BOARD AUTHORIZATION? I'M NOT SURE EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE ASKING, BUT WE EVERY MONTH, EVERY MONTH, EVERY MONTH IN THE EVERY MONTH IN THE BUDGET AMENDMENT, THERE ARE EXPENSE NEUTRAL AND THAT IS MOVING FROM ONE PROJECT TO ANOTHER OR ONE EXPENSE CATEGORY TO ANOTHER.

AND SO WE DO THAT EACH AND EVERY MONTH TO COVER THE ITEMS THAT ARE BEING DONE, BUT WHEN THE BOARD TOOK ACTION IN MAY, THERE WAS NO THERE WAS NO REFERENCE TO DOLLAR AMOUNTS.

IT WAS JUST TO APPROVE THE TWO VENDORS, AND SO I UTILIZED THAT BASED ON WHAT WE HAD ESTIMATED FOR ONE TO BE THE COST OF TWO.

SO I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT BECAUSE THE BOARD TOOK NO ACTION IN MOVING THE MONEY, AND THE ADMINISTRATION, I BELIEVE, CAN AUTHORIZE UP TO $150000.

I BELIEVE THAT'S WHAT PROCUREMENT SAYS.

I BELIEVE THAT.

THAT WOULD BE FOR A PURCHASE.

RIGHT, IF IT'S A PURCHASE UP TO ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS, AND IT CANNOT BE OVER THAT IN THE AGGREGATE.

THAT'S WHAT I BELIEVE IS CORRECT.

AS A PURCHASE THAT WE WERE GOING TO DO, THAT WOULD BE CORRECT.

I THINK THAT IS CORRECT.

SO SO I HAVE SOME CONCERNS ABOUT THE WAY THAT WAS DONE.

I DON'T HAVE ANY CONCERNS ABOUT YOUR INTEGRITY, BUT I HAVE SOME CONCERNS.

I JUST HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT THE WAY THIS DISTRICT DOES THAT KIND OF BUSINESS BECAUSE A LOT OF TIMES THIS IS PUBLIC MONEY AND THE PUBLIC REALLY DOESN'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THE EXPENDITURE OF THEIR MONEY.

THAT'S WHY I HAVE CONCERNS.

I ACTUALLY THINK THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN BROUGHT BACK TO THE BOARD.

NOW, I'M NOT TRYING TO SAY WE'RE NOT GOING TO PAY THESE PEOPLE SO PEOPLE DON'T GO OUT THERE AND TELL THESE PEOPLE THAT BECAUSE THAT'S NOT WHAT I'M SAYING.

BUT I DO BELIEVE THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN BROUGHT BACK TO THE BOARD, AND THE DISCUSSION SHOULD HAVE BEEN MADE ON HOW MUCH OVER THE ORIGINAL $150000.

SO THERE COULD HAVE BEEN AN ACADEMIC CONVERSATION RATHER THAN THE ADMINISTRATION JUST MOVING THE MONEY. THAT'S MY THAT'S MY OPINION, AND THAT'S ALL.

THANK YOU TRUSTEE FOREMAN.

TRUSTEES ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS HERE? TRUSTEES SEEING NONE, YOU MAY CAST YOUR VOTES.

TRUSTEE MARSHALL.

TRUSTEE MICCICHE. DON'T LET HIM UP.

DO NOT LET HIM UP. NEXT TIME, HE WON'T OPEN HIS MOUTH.

DID YOU GET THE MOTION PASSES 8-0.

TRUSTEES, YOU'VE JUST ADOPTED THE MOTION APPROVING TO RATIFY THE AMOUNT OF BILLS, CLAIMS AND ACCOUNTS FOR DECEMBER 1ST, 2021 TO DECEMBER 31ST TO DECEMBER 31ST, 2021.

BEFORE WE ADJOURN, WE DO.

I JUST WANT TO NOTE TO TRUSTEE AS WE DO HAVE A QUICK [INAUDIBLE] REQUIRED HEARING AFTER THIS, BUT FINALLY, IT WOULD BE REMISS IF WE DIDN'T TAKE A SECOND TO RECOGNIZE ONE OF OUR OWN WHO HAS BEEN HERE FOR OVER TWO DECADES, MS. KAY GULLEY, WHO IS GOING ON TO A PROMOTION FOR AN OPERATION SERVICES MANAGER, I BELIEVE.

[APPLAUSE] THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR

[02:25:06]

SERVICE, YOUR DEDICATION, IT HAS BEEN AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE WORKING WITH YOU, BUT I ALSO ASSUME THAT LIKE DINO, YOU'LL BE AROUND ALL THE TIME.

YES, I WILL.

THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT.

WITH THAT, THE TIME IS 6:50 P.M, AND THIS MEETING IS ADJOURNED.
