[APPLAUSE] AND SO, MRS. NEWSOM, THAT CONCLUDES OUR DISTRICT RECOGNITIONS AND CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN TO EVERYONE WHO WAS RECOGNIZED.

GREAT JOB, GUYS. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

[7. Instructional Focus ]

THAT LEADS US TO NUMBER SEVEN, INSTRUCTIONAL FOCUS, DR.

CANTU. YES, I WOULD LIKE TO ASK GARY GATES TO COME FORWARD AND SHARE A PRESENTATION WITH YOU ALL REGARDING LSG GPM 4.1.

GOOD EVENING, BOARD, MICHELLE NEWSOM, WELCOME, EXCUSE SORRY.

GOOD EVENING AND DR.

CANTU, I'M SORRY I LOST MY PLACE.

I'M HERE TONIGHT TO PRESENT ON GPM 4.1 AND I'M REALLY EXCITED TO SHARE SOME INFORMATION FROM THIS PAST SCHOOL YEAR.

IF YOU'LL NOTICE, WE SET A GOAL.

THIS WAS THE YEAR 2021.

THIS WAS WHEN WE WERE DID ALL OF THE WORK AND LAID THE FOUNDATION FOR 100 PERCENT OF OUR STUDENTS TO BE INVOLVED IN OUR EXTRACURRICULAR AND CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES.

AND THEN COVID HIT AND WE WEREN'T THERE.

HOWEVER, I DO HAVE SOME VERY IMPORTANT AND POSITIVE THINGS TO SHARE WITH YOU GUYS REGARDING THIS GOAL.

FIRST, WE MET OUR GOAL OF INCREASING THE TOTAL NUMBER OF ACTIVITIES THAT WE OFFER.

AND SO THE GOAL WAS TO GET TO 85 BY THE JUNE OF 2021 AND AS A SECONDARY GOAL AND WE WERE AT 96. AND SO WE DO NOTICE IT ACTUALLY DECLINED A LITTLE BIT FROM THE YEAR BEFORE, BUT OUR CAMPUSES DID A GREAT JOB OF BEING ABLE TO MAINTAIN AND OFFER MANY OF THE SAME OPPORTUNITIES THAT THEY HAD PRIOR TO COVID JUST IN A DIFFERENT WAY.

AND IF YOU'LL REMEMBER, AS I GO ON TO THE NEXT SLIDE, PRIOR TO THIS SPRING, WE WERE AT 66 PERCENT OF OUR STUDENTS PARTICIPATING.

THAT'S WHAT I HAD REPORTED IN JANUARY.

PRIOR TO COVID, WE WERE AT 90 PERCENT PARTICIPATING.

WE WERE ON TRACK.

WE WERE THERE. WE WERE WE WERE ON OUR WAY OF MAKING IT TO 100 PERCENT.

AND SO WE WORKED WITH THE CAMPUSES AND WE WORKED SPECIFICALLY WITH OUR ELEMENTARY CAMPUSES THIS PAST SCHOOL YEAR.

AND BY THE END OF THE SPRING WE WERE UP TO 77 PERCENT OF OUR STUDENTS STILL PARTICIPATING IN EXTRA AND CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES.

AND SO WE'RE REALLY PROUD OF THAT.

OUR CAMPUSES SHOULD BE VERY PROUD OF THAT.

IN A YEAR THAT WE FACED WHERE MORE THAN 33 PERCENT OF OUR STUDENTS WHO ARE AT HOME, WE STILL FOUND A WAY TO KEEP THEM INVOLVED.

AND I THINK THAT SHOWS, AS YOU'LL SEE TONIGHT IN JENNIFER YOUNG'S PRESENTATION ACADEMICALLY, HOW WELL WE PERFORMED EVEN IN THE SYSTEM OF COVID BECAUSE OF A LOT OF OUR EXTRACURRICULAR PARTICIPATION.

AND SO YOU'LL NOTICE ON THE EVALUATION WE DID NOT MEET, BUT I'LL SHARE WHAT OUR NEXT STEPS ARE. AND WE DID INCREASE, AS I MENTIONED, 11 PERCENT FROM THE FALL TO THE SPRING.

AND AS I MOVE FORWARD, WE'VE REDEFINED WHAT PARTICIPATION AND EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES ARE FOR MANSFIELD ISD.

THIS IS THE NEW DEFINITION WHICH YOU SEE BEFORE YOU.

I JUST WANT TO POINT OUT WHAT THE MAIN DIFFERENCE IS, AND THAT IS IN THE FUTURE, WE WILL NOW ALSO COUNT STUDENTS THAT PARTICIPATE AND OFFICIALLY ORGANIZE CO AND EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES, WHETHER THEY ARE CAMPUS OR NOT CAMPUS RELATED.

WE HAVE MANY STUDENTS THAT PARTICIPATE IN GREAT EXAMPLE IS BOY SCOUTS.

THE BOY SCOUTS IS A GREAT ORGANIZATION.

THE PAST FIVE YEARS AS WE WENT WITH THIS GOAL, IF THAT STUDENT MAY GO ON TO BE AN EAGLE

[00:10:02]

SCOUT, GO ON TO A&M DO GREAT THINGS.

THEY HAVEN'T COUNTED IN THIS GOAL.

AND THE RESEARCH SHOWS THAT WHETHER IT IS A SCHOOL RELATED FUNCTION OR A COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION, IT STILL HAS A POSITIVE IMPACT ON YOUR EDUCATION AND HOW WELL YOU PERFORM AFTER SCHOOL. AND BECAUSE ONE OF OUR NEW GOALS IS COLLEGE AND LIFE READY.

WE KNOW THAT MANY OF THESE ACTIVITIES ARE PREPARING OUR STUDENTS TO BE LIFE READY.

AND SO WE'RE GOING TO INCLUDE THAT IN OUR NEW DEFINITION.

AND SO THE NEXT AND LAST PIECE THAT I'M REALLY EXCITED ABOUT IS ON OUR STUDENT SCORECARDS, WHICH WE'VE HEARD A LOT ABOUT OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS.

THIS WILL BE INCLUDED ON THEIR SCORECARD.

SO STUDENTS WILL TRACK THEIR PARTICIPATION IN EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES, WHICH IS GREAT FOR US, BECAUSE NOW IT GIVES US A MUCH MORE STANDARD WAY OF TRACKING THAT PARTICIPATION.

SO BETTER DATA AND DATA THAT WE CAN NOW SEE AND DIVIDE UP WHAT THE ACTIVITIES ARE, WHETHER THEIR SCHOOL COMMUNITY.

AND SO IN THE FUTURE, WHEN WE REPORT ON THIS, THERE WILL BE A LOT MORE IN-DEPTH DATA IN REGARDS TO PARTICIPATION.

AND WE'RE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THAT.

AND SO I KNOW WE NEVER LIKE TO FALL SHORT OF THE GOAL IN MANSFIELD, BUT THIS IS ONE THAT I THINK AS A DISTRICT WE SHOULD STILL BE PROUD OF OUR CAMPUSES SPECIFICALLY, NOT ONLY OUR CAMPUS LEADERS, BUT THOSE COACHES IN THOSE CAMPUS, YOU KNOW, THE SPONSORS OF THOSE ACTIVITIES BECAUSE THEY WORKED REALLY HARD TO MAINTAIN STUDENT PARTICIPATION AND WE'RE REALLY PROUD OF THAT. SO THANK YOU.

AND I THINK THAT'S IT.

ANY QUESTIONS? ANY QUESTIONS TO MY RIGHT? THANK YOU, GARY.

AND WE'VE ALL RECOGNIZED WHAT AN IMPORTANT ROLE THIS HAS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR STUDENTS. AS YOU ALLOW FOR COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS TO COUNT AS MUCH AS CREDIT TOWARDS THE CO CURRICULAR PARTICIPATION, HOW ARE WE GOING TO ENGAGE THOSE ORGANIZATIONS LIKE BIG BROTHERS, BIG SISTERS AND BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB? HOW ARE WE GOING TO ENGAGE THEM SO THEY'LL KNOW THAT THERE'S SOME LEVEL OF ACCOUNTABILITY THAT THEY'LL HAVE TO MONITOR ON BEHALF OF THE STUDENT.

SO WE'VE HAD A LOT OF DISCUSSION, ESPECIALLY AROUND INCLUDING THIS DATA ON THE STUDENT SCORECARD AND WE'VE DISCUSSED EVERYTHING FROM THIS WILL BE THERE WILL BE SOME SORT OF VERIFICATION PROCESS.

RIGHT. THEY'LL SIGN OFF. SO IF I AM ACTIVE IN BOY SCOUTS, MY SCOUT LEADER WILL SIGN OFF.

YES, HE'S PARTICIPATED AND REMAINS ACTIVE.

AND AND WE WILL HAVE THAT INFORMATION READILY IF WE NEED IT.

OTHER YOU KNOW, FOR THE MOST PART, WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT BASEBALL, IN EIGHTH GRADE, WE HAVE STUDENTS THAT PLAY BASEBALL WELL, WE DON'T HAVE BASEBALL IN THE SCHOOL, BUT WE KNOW THOSE COACHES IN MYBA PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN HELPING THOSE YOUNG MEN DEVELOP AND THE MANSFIELD ISD SOFTBALL ASSOCIATION AS WELL WITH THE YOUNG LADIES I COACHED IN IT.

AND MANY OF OUR DISTRICT EMPLOYEES PARTICIPATE IN THAT.

WE KNOW THAT THEY WOULD HAVE NO PROBLEM HELPING US OUT IN THE ACCOUNTABILITY PIECE.

AND SO I THINK, ONE, IT'S THROUGH OUR MARKETING RIGHT? WE LET THEM KNOW, HEY, WE WANT OUR STUDENTS IN MANSFIELD TO PREPARE AND TO PARTICIPATE IN YOUR ACTIVITIES.

AND I THINK THIS WILL ALSO GIVE CAMPUSES MORE MOTIVATION TO ADVERTISE FOR THOSE GROUPS AND TO SAY, HEY, YOU CAN JOIN THIS AND IT HELPS WITH OUR PARTICIPATION AND EXTRA COCURRICULAR ACTIVITIES. AND SO I THINK THERE'S IT WAS A PIECE WE WERE MISSING AND NOW IT WILL JUST STRENGTHEN THOSE PARTNERSHIPS WITH THOSE GROUPS.

SO YEAH MINE IS MORE JUST A COMMENT AS OPPOSED TO A QUESTION AND RANDALL I THANK YOU.

THAT WAS MY QUESTION, KIND OF HOW ARE WE GOING TO KEEP SCORE.

MY COMMENT IS SIMPLY THIS.

I APPRECIATE YOU AND THE TEAM AND YOUR EFFORTS TO REFOCUS AND ADAPT TO THE ENVIRONMENT THAT WE WERE IN AND ACKNOWLEDGING THE FACT THAT THINGS CAN BE DIFFERENT.

RIGHT. THAT'S A BIG WIN.

AND AND THIS, AS AN ASIDE, AS A PARENT OF KIDS WHO HAVE PARTICIPATED IN ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE OF THIS, I LOVE THE IDEA THAT IT'S NOT A EITHER OR SCENARIO.

I THINK IT SPEAKS TO THE REALITY OF WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE GOING THROUGH AND THAT THEY'RE REALLY HAVING EARNEST OPPORTUNITIES OUTSIDE OF OUR SCHOOLS THAT COUNT IN TERMS OF DEVELOPMENT. AND I'LL BE HONEST YOU BRING UP A REALLY GOOD POINT BECAUSE THAT 77 PERCENT OF THOSE ARE KIDS THAT ARE PARTICIPATING WITH US.

RIGHT. IF WE WERE TRACKING PRIOR TO THE OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES, TOO, WE WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH

[00:15:02]

HIGHER BECAUSE WE DO KNOW A LOT OF STUDENTS BECAUSE OF HOW COVID AND DIFFERENT PROTOCOLS HAD TO FOLLOW. THERE WERE SOME ACTIVITIES THAT WERE JUST REALLY DIFFICULT TO HAVE, AND STUDENTS DIDN'T SEEM TO HAVE THE SAME MOTIVATION TO PARTICIPATE.

BUT THEY'RE STILL DOING THOSE THINGS OUTSIDE.

AND SO I THINK THIS WILL HELP SHORE UP THAT THAT LIKE OF THAT PARTNERSHIP AND THE EXPECTATION FOR OUR STUDENTS AS WELL SO.

KAREN. THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION.

I JUST WANTED TO GIVE AN EXTRA SHOUT OUT FOR ALL OF THE STAFF AND ADMINISTRATION THAT WENT WAY OUT OF THEIR WAY TO TRY TO FIGURE OUT CREATIVE WAYS TO INVOLVE KIDS.

AND THE WHOLE PURPOSE BEHIND THIS GOAL IS THAT WE KNOW INVOLVED KIDS DO BETTER IN SCHOOL.

THEIR ATTENDANCE IS BETTER.

WE KNOW THAT THEY CARE MORE ABOUT WHAT THEY'RE INVOLVED IN AND ALL OF THAT.

AND MY GOODNESS, JUST PUTTING TOGETHER A LESSON PLAN WAS SUCH A CHALLENGE THIS YEAR, WHICH IS THE CORE COMPETENCY OF WHAT THE TEACHERS WERE SUPPOSED TO DO.

AND ON TOP OF THAT, TO TRY TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO ENGAGE THE KIDS OUTSIDE OF THE CLASSROOM.

I MEAN, THAT IS VERY COMMENDABLE.

SO I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR STAFF HEARD HOW MUCH WE TRULY APPRECIATE THEM TRYING TO ENGAGE STUDENTS IN A YEAR THAT WAS NOT VERY ENGAGING.

AND SO I THINK THESE NUMBERS ARE REMARKABLE AND I'M VERY, VERY THANKFUL FOR THE STUFF THAT WE HAVE. I AGREE 100 PERCENT.

[INAUDIBLE] JUST A QUICK COMMENT AND A QUESTION, AND I TOO THINK THAT GIVEN THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF LAST YEAR, THAT THE NUMBERS ARE REMARKABLE, I JUST HAVE A QUESTION FOR THE PERCENTAGE. SO THE YEAR BEFORE, IT WAS AT 90 PERCENT.

WHAT IS THE PLAN FOR THOSE SCHOOLS TO CAPTURE THOSE STUDENTS? I KNOW SOME OF THEM WILL COME FROM OUTSIDE SOURCES NOW, BUT THAT SMALL PERCENTAGE THAT WE'RE STILL MISSING, WHAT'S THE PLAN TO CAPTURE THOSE STUDENTS SO THAT WE HAVE 100 PERCENT? SO I WANT TO BE CLEAR WHAT WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.

WE WERE AT 90 PERCENT, AND THAT MEANT THE NEXT YEAR WERE AT 77 PERCENT THERE WERE STUDENTS THAT DIDN'T PARTICIPATE.

AND SO I THINK THAT FOR THE MOST PART, WHAT OUR CAMPUSES, WHAT THEY DO NOW IS AND IT WON'T BE MUCH DIFFERENT IS THEY WILL FIRST IDENTIFY THESE ARE WHAT WE OFFER.

THESE ARE THE STUDENTS PARTICIPATING.

AND BECAUSE WE'RE ADDING THIS TO THE STUDENT SCORECARD, THEY WILL NOW BE ABLE TO KIND OF SEE EARLIER.

HEY, BECAUSE ONE OF THE THINGS AS THE KIDS LEARN HOW TO HOW TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR SCORECARD, THEY'LL KNOW I'M IN BAND.

SO I GET TO GO MARK THIS OFF AND WE'LL HAVE THAT DATA.

AND SO NOW CAMPUSES CAN USE THAT ONE TO LOOK AND SEE WHO'S NOT INVOLVED.

AND NOW FROM THERE, IT'S EVERY CAMPUS KIND OF TAKES A DIFFERENT APPROACH.

RIGHT? IT'S OK.

WHO ARE THE KIDS NOT INVOLVED.

IS THERE A SIMILAR TREND AMONG THOSE STUDENTS? SO IS THERE AN AREA THAT WE'RE MISSING AS A CAMPUS WHERE WE COULD ADDRESS THAT? AND IT'S ALWAYS DIFFERENT, BUT THAT'S WHERE, YOU KNOW, WE LOVE BEING A DISTRICT OF CONTINUAL GROWTH.

AND SO OUR DISTRICT, OUR CAMPUSES, THEY ALWAYS DO USE ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS.

LOOK FOR ANSWERS AND THEN ADD AND LOOK FOR A WAY TO SUPPORT THOSE KIDS.

AND SO I DON'T THINK THAT PART WILL CHANGE.

I THINK IT WILL BE JUST MAKING SURE THEY THIS IS STILL A FOCUS BECAUSE THEY AS KAREN SAID, THE RESEARCH TYING STUDENT SUCCESS TO PARTICIPATION IN EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES IS SO STRONG, WHICH IS WHY WE FOCUS ON IT.

SO. MS. THOMAS, YOU KIND OF SAID WHEN I WAS GOING TO SAY THIS IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT PART OF STUDENT SUCCESS, SO I REALLY APPRECIATE YOU ALL THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX TO SEE AND MAKE SURE IT CONTINUED ON.

AND JUST LIKE THE 4H PROGRAM IS NOW PART PART OF THAT IF YOU PARTICIPATE IN FOR YOUR EXTRACURRICULAR. SO I APPRECIATE YOU ALL GOING THE EXTRA MILE TO MAKE SURE THOSE KIDS ARE STILL GETTING THEIR EXTRACURRICULARS.

SO THANK YOU. THANK YOU, MR. GATES WAS A GREAT PRESENTATION.

I THINK WE'RE ALL PRETTY PROUD OF WHAT HAPPENED LAST YEAR.

I THINK I'VE NEVER SEEN MORE CREATIVE CLUBS AND ACTIVITIES AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

I MEAN, SOME OF THOSE JUST KIND OF BLEW ME AWAY TO SEE SOME OF THOSE.

SO BETWEEN THE KIDS AND THE AND THE STAFF, I'M NOT SURE WHERE ALL THAT CAME FROM.

HOPEFULLY FROM THE SYNERGY BETWEEN THE TWO.

RIGHT. AND MY ONLY OTHER QUESTION WOULD BE ACCOUNTABILITY WITH HOW WE DO THAT.

I MEAN, NOT GOING TO SAY IT'S JUST MY KIDS, BUT THEY WOULD START OUT WITH FIVE CLUBS TO MAKE THE FIRST MEETING AND A HALF, AND THEN WE'D GET DOWN TO ONE OR TWO BY THE END, YOU KNOW. SO HOW ARE WE KIND OF TRACKING THAT, THAT THEY DON'T JUST SHOW UP TO ONE AND GET TO SIGN OFF? YOU KNOW, IS THERE SOME KIND OF LIKE MUST GO TO, YOU KNOW, MAJORITY OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT? WELL, THIS FIRST YEAR, WE'VE HAD A LOT OF DISCUSSION AROUND IT.

AND WE HAD A GREAT MEETING WHERE SEVERAL OF US FROM CIA AS WELL AS STUDENT SERVICES, WE MET AND WE'RE LIKE, OK, BECAUSE THIS WILL BE A QUESTION.

AND THIS WILL ALSO BE SOMETHING WE FACE BECAUSE CAMPUS LEADERS, THEY DON'T WANT TO JUST CHECK A BOX. RIGHT.

THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE THEIR STUDENTS ARE REALLY PARTICIPATING IN THESE ACTIVITIES.

AND SO WE BECAUSE OF THE ROLL OUT OF STUDENT SCORECARD IN THE WAY WE CAN COLLECT DATA, WE

[00:20:03]

HAVE DIFFERENT OPTIONS.

AND SO WHAT WE REALLY PLAN ON DOING THIS YEAR IS REALLY OBSERVING, SEEING HOW IT'S WORKING. SEEING WHERE IDENTIFIED AREAS AND MAKE IMPROVEMENTS AND TRY TO COME UP WITH A WAY TO MEASURE IT WHERE IT'S MANAGEABLE IS MORE ACCURATE.

AS YOU GUYS KNOW, IN LAST YEAR, AND THE PREVIOUS YEARS, WE'VE DONE IT THROUGH A STUDENT SURVEY. AND WHILE THIS UPCOMING YEAR WE STILL PLAN ON DOING THIS SURVEY BECAUSE THIS IS OUR FIRST YEAR OF THE SCORECARD, WE DON'T WANT TO JUST RELY ON A NEW WAY OF COLLECTING DATA. BUT THAT AS WELL.

LIKE YOU SAID, SOME STUDENTS WOULD JUST SAY, OH, YES.

AND SO WE WANT A MORE ACCURATE WAY TO MEASURE IT AND BE A LITTLE MORE ROBUST WITH REPORTING THE DATA. AND SO I THINK WE DO HAVE YOU KNOW, YOU CAN DO IT DOCUMENTS.

THEY CAN SIGN OFF AT THE END.

WE BECAUSE MANY OF OUR CLUBS ARE IN SCHOOL.

YOU HAVE LISTS THAT YOU CAN CREATE WITHIN SKYWARD AND THE SPONSOR CAN MARK OFF EVERYONE THAT COMPLETED ACTIVELY ENGAGED ALL OF THAT INFORMATION AND STUFF.

AND SO I THINK THAT WE WILL COME UP WITH A WAY THAT'S MANAGEABLE, THAT DOESN'T PUT TOO MUCH ON OUR CAMPUSES IN REGARDS TO THE TRACKING.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, YOU KNOW, INFORMATION OVERLOAD CAN ALSO HURT YOU.

AND SO, YOU KNOW, PART OF THIS IS TRAINING OUR KIDS TO BE GOOD CITIZENS.

SO THERE'S ALSO TRUST INVOLVED.

AND SO I THINK THAT THERE WILL BE A BALANCE BETWEEN TRUST IN OUR STUDENTS THAT WE'VE RAISED UP TO BE PREPARED TO DO THE RIGHT THING AS WELL AS WHAT'S THE BALANCE WITH ACCOUNTABILITY SO.

GREAT. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THAT BRINGS US TO SEVEN POINT TWO 2021 STAAR AND END OF COURSE PRESENTATION DR.

CANTU. [INAUDIBLE] MS. JENNIFER YOUNG, WHO IS ALREADY ALMOST THERE UP TO THE PODIUM TO GIVE US THIS PRESENTATION ON OUR STAAR AND EOC RESULTS.

OK, GOOD EVENING, MS. NEWSOM AND MEMBERS OF THE BOARD.

DR. CANTU, I AM REALLY EXCITED TONIGHT TO TALK ABOUT EOC AND STAAR SCORES AND EOC AND STAAR DATA IS REALLY EXCITING.

AND I DIDN'T MAKE THAT THE TITLE BECAUSE NOBODY REALLY GETS JAZZED UP ABOUT NUMBERS.

SO INSTEAD, OUR TITLE TONIGHT IS THE MISD MISSION BECAUSE I THINK WHILE WE'RE LOOKING AT SCORES, IT'S IMPORTANT FOR US TO FOCUS ON WHY WE'RE HERE AND WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO.

AND OUR MISSION IS TO INSPIRE AND EDUCATE STUDENTS TO BE PRODUCTIVE CITIZENS.

AND THIS YEAR HAS BEEN LIKE NO YEAR WE'VE EVER FACED.

AND I THINK WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO SEE IN THIS PRESENTATION IS IN SPITE OF SOME TREMENDOUS ODDS AND IN SPITE OF SOME TREMENDOUS STRUGGLES, OUR KIDS, OUR TEACHERS, OUR ADMINISTRATORS, THEY KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK.

AND SO, AGAIN, I THINK A LOT OF TIMES WE GET LOST IN NUMBERS.

BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE'RE HERE FOR KIDS AND KIDS ARE OUR BUSINESS.

AND SO THAT'S WHY I WANTED TO START WITH OUR MISSION TONIGHT.

AND SO BEFORE WE GET INTO THE SCORES, I JUST WANTED TO DO CURRICULUM 101 REVIEW WITH EVERYONE. DR.

SCOTT USUALLY DOES THIS PRESENTATION.

AND SINCE WE DIDN'T TAKE STAAR LAST YEAR, WE DIDN'T HAVE THIS PRESENTATION.

AND SO IT'S BEEN TWO YEARS SINCE WE'VE SEEN THIS.

AND SO I JUST WANT TO REVIEW FOR OUR CURRENT BOARD MEMBERS AND OUR NEW BOARD MEMBERS, WE REALLY BELIEVE IN MANSFIELD THAT THE HEART OF WHAT WE DO IS CURRICULUM AND WE ARE REALLY GOOD AT BUILDING A VIABLE CURRICULUM AND IT'S ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL OF OUR KIDS.

AND WE KNOW THAT IF WE CAN TRULY FOCUS ON THAT TIER ONE INSTRUCTION IN THE SCHOOL DAY AND WE CAN REALLY FOCUS ON CREATING A HIGH QUALITY CURRICULUM IN THAT TIER ONE INSTRUCTION, IF WE FOCUS ON THOSE TWO THINGS, STUDENT LEARNING AND STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT, TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES. AND WE HAVE BUILT OUR NAME ON OUR CURRICULUM.

WE BUILT OUR A RATING ON OUR CURRICULUM.

AND SO WE KNOW THAT THE SYSTEMS WE HAVE IN PLACE WORK.

AND SO IN OUR C.I DEPARTMENT, WE HAVE THREE CORE PROCESSES THAT WE FOCUS ON.

AND JUST A REMINDER, THE THREE C'S, ITS CURRICULUM, ITS CALIBRATION AND ITS A CADENCE OF ACCOUNTABILITY. THERE ARE A LOT OF DISTRICTS AROUND US THAT BY THEIR CURRICULUM THEY'RE LIKE, OK, THE STATE SAYS, WE'VE GOT TO TEACH THIS.

WE'RE GOING TO GO BY CURRICULUM, TEACHERS IMPLEMENT IT.

AND WHEN THEY GET THEIR SCORES AND THE SCORES AREN'T GOOD, THEY GO BY A DIFFERENT CURRICULUM. THEY TELL TEACHERS TRASH THAT USE THIS NEW CURRICULUM.

AND THERE'S NO CONTINUITY, THERE'S NO OWNERSHIP.

BUT OUR DISTRICT HAS REALLY GROWN OUR CURRICULUM FROM THE GROUND UP.

AND WE'VE DONE THAT WITH THE HELP OF SOME TREMENDOUS TEACHERS, AND AMAZING CURRICULUM COORDINATORS, DONNA O'BRIAN AND HER TEAM DO A FANTASTIC JOB.

[00:25:03]

AND I CAN'T STRESS ENOUGH THE WORK THEY DID THIS LAST YEAR TO SET UP TWO DIFFERENT LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS FOR OUR STUDENTS.

AND SO WE KNOW CURRICULUM IS KEY AND WE KNOW THAT OUR CALIBRATION PROCESS OF MAKING SURE THAT WHAT THE STATE SAYS WE TEACH IS WHAT WE TEACH AND WE TEACH IT AT THE LEVEL IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE TAUGHT.

IF WE FOCUS ON THOSE THINGS, WE KNOW THAT THE SCORES ARE GOING TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES.

AND SO TONIGHT YOU'RE GOING TO SEE SOME OF THE RESULTS OF THAT WORK.

I WANTED TO SHARE THIS SLIDE WITH YOU BECAUSE I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT THAT THE NUMBERS THAT YOU SEE TONIGHT AREN'T JUST NUMBERS THAT WE SHOW AND THEN WE PUT AWAY.

WE USE THE NUMBERS, WE USE THE DATA TO DRIVE EVERYTHING WE DO BECAUSE THE DATA TELLS THE STORY AND IT DOESN'T TELL THE WHOLE STORY, BUT IT TELLS AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE STORY.

AND WE USE THOSE NUMBERS TO PLAN INSTRUCTION, TO TWEAK CURRICULUM.

AND SO IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT, YOU KNOW, THAT WE'RE NOT JUST THROWING THESE NUMBERS UP AND THEN WE DON'T LOOK AT THEM AGAIN.

OUR COORDINATORS HAVE ALREADY BEEN GOING THROUGH THE DATA.

THEY ALREADY KNOW AREAS WE NEED TO ADDRESS.

THEY ALREADY KNOW WHERE WE HAVE SOME GAPS.

AND SO THAT WORK HAS BEEN ONGOING ALL SUMMER.

AND SO I JUST WANTED TO REMIND YOU THAT THE NUMBERS AREN'T JUST NUMBERS, BUT WE USE THOSE NUMBERS TO DRIVE EVERYTHING THAT WE DO.

AND SO TONIGHT, I WANT TO START BY LOOKING AT OUR RESULTS.

AND BEFORE I SHOW YOU THE RESULTS, I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT THAT YOU KNOW HOW WE GET THE RESULTS ON A STAAR TEST OR AN END OF COURSE, EXAM.

THERE ARE FOUR DIFFERENT PERFORMANCE LEVELS THAT A KID CAN ACHIEVE.

THE FIRST ONE IS DID NOT MEET GRADE LEVEL.

AND JUST IN PLAIN ENGLISH, THAT MEANS THE KID DIDN'T PASS.

THEY DIDN'T PASS THE STAAR OR EOC EXAM.

APPROACHES IS REALLY A CONFUSING TERM, BECAUSE A KID CAN SCORE APPROACHES GRADE LEVEL, THAT ACTUALLY IS A PASSING SCORE, BUT IF YOU ALL SEE UNDER APPROACHES, IT SAYS THAT THEY HAVE SOME KNOWLEDGE OF THE COURSE CONTENT, BUT THEY MAY BE MISSING CRITICAL ELEMENTS.

SO WE WANT OUR STUDENTS TO PASS AND SO APPROACHES MEETS THAT PASSING MARK.

BUT WE REALLY LIKE TO FOCUS AS A DISTRICT AS IT MEETS.

AND YOU CAN SEE THE DEFINITION FOR MEET IS THEY HAVE STRONG KNOWLEDGE IN COURSE CONTENT AND THEY'RE PREPARED TO MOVE TO THE NEXT GRADE.

AND SO WHEN YOU LOOK AT VISION 2030 AND HOW WE WANT STUDENTS ON GRADE LEVEL OR ABOVE, THAT'S WHY WE LOOK AT THE MEETS NUMBER, IT WOULD BE A LOT PRETTIER IF WE JUST SHOWED YOU APPROACHES NUMBERS BECAUSE THE APPROACHES NUMBERS ARE HIGHER.

BUT AGAIN, WE WANT OUR STUDENTS AT MEETS OR ABOVE LEVEL.

AND THEN THE THIRD LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE THERE IS MASTER'S GRADE LEVEL.

AND THAT REALLY MEANS IF A KID SCORES AT MASTER'S LEVEL THERE ON THAT COLLEGE CAREER READINESS PATHWAY.

AND SO THE STATE CAME UP WHEN THEY CAME UP WITH THE A THROUGH F RATING SYSTEM, THEY CREATED A FORMULA THAT SAYS IF YOU'RE GOING TO BE AN A DISTRICT, YOU REALLY NEED ABOUT 90 PERCENT OF YOUR KIDS AT APPROACHES, 60 PERCENT AT MEETS, AND 30 PERCENT AT MASTERS.

AND IF YOU CAN HIT THAT FORMULA, THAT CAN PRETTY MUCH LEAD YOU TO BEING AN A DISTRICT.

SO AS WE'RE LOOKING AT THE MEET'S CATEGORY TONIGHT, KEEP IN MIND THAT THE STATE SAYS AT THE MEET'S LEVEL WE SHOULD HAVE ABOUT 60 PERCENT PASSING.

OK, SO NOW LET'S LOOK AT THE NUMBERS.

WHAT I HAVE FOR YOU HERE IS WE'RE GOING TO START AT HIGH SCHOOL.

A LOT OF TIMES WE START AT THIRD GRADE.

BUT I'M A HIGH SCHOOL PERSON, SO WE'RE GOING TO START AT HIGH SCHOOL TONIGHT.

AND SO HERE YOU CAN SEE THAT AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL, WE HAVE FIVE DIFFERENT TEST ALGEBRA, BIOLOGY, ENGLISH ONE, ENGLISH TWO, AND U.S.

HISTORY. SO I WANT TO SHOW YOU HOW THIS SLIDE IS FORMATTED AND WE'LL FOLLOW THE SAME FORMAT FOR EACH SLIDE.

IF YOU'LL NOTICE THE BLUE THAT REPRESENTS OUR SCORES FROM 2018, THE ORANGE IS 2019, AND THEN THE GRAY BOX IS THIS CURRENT YEAR.

NOW, NOTICE THERE'S NOT A 2020 BECAUSE WE DID NOT TEST IN 2020.

SO THIS IS OUR LAST THREE YEARS OF DATA THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT.

AND THEN ACROSS THE BAR THERE, YOU SEE KIND OF A YELLOW LINE, THAT'S THE 60 PERCENT MEETS LEVEL FOUR THAT THE STATE PUTS IN TERMS OF OUR STATE TARGET.

SO YOU CAN SEE IN ALGEBRA, WE HAD A LITTLE BIT OF A DIP FROM 2019 TO 2021 AND WE DROPPED A LITTLE BIT BELOW THAT STATE TARGET OF 60 PERCENT.

BUT AGAIN, STILL HANGING PRETTY CLOSE.

IF YOU LOOK AT BIOLOGY, VERY SMALL DIP, BUT WE'RE STILL ABOVE THE TARGET.

IF YOU LOOK AT ENGLISH ONE, HOLY COW, THEY DIDN'T DROP AT ALL.

SO IN SPITE OF EVERYTHING THAT OUR KIDS AND OUR TEACHERS FACED, THERE WAS NO DROP OFF IN ENGLISH ONE. AND THEN YOU LOOK AT ENGLISH TWO, AND THEN YOU'RE LIKE, REALLY DOUBLE HOLY COW. THEY WENT UP AND THEY DIDN'T JUST GO UP ONE OR TWO, BUT SIX PERCENTAGE POINTS.

[00:30:06]

AND WE JUST DIDN'T SEE THAT ANYWHERE ACROSS THE STATE.

THIS IS REALLY UNUSUAL.

AND SO THIS IS SOMETHING WE'RE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT AND REALLY PROUD OF OUR OUR KIDS AND OUR TEACHERS AND OUR COORDINATORS.

AND THEN YOU LOOK AT U.S.

HISTORY WELL ABOVE THE 60 TARGET FOR THE STATE.

SO LOOKING AT HIGH SCHOOL SCORES, VERY PROUD OF THAT.

AND THOSE NUMBERS LOOK REALLY GOOD.

SO THIS NEXT SLIDE IS STILL END OF COURSE.

BUT NOW, INSTEAD OF COMPARING OURSELVES OVER THE LAST THREE YEARS, THIS COMPARES US TO THE REGION AND TO THE STATE FOR THIS YEAR.

AND SO NOW THIS SLIDE, THE BLUE IS HOW WE PERFORMED THIS YEAR.

THE ORANGE IS THE REGION AND THE GRAY IS THE STATE.

AND YOU CAN SEE WE OUTPERFORMED THE STATE AND THE REGION ACROSS THE BAR.

AND IN SOME OF THOSE TESTS, IT WASN'T EVEN CLOSE.

ENGLISH ONE 12 PERCENTAGE POINTS HIGHER IN ENGLISH TWO 11 PERCENTAGE POINTS HIGHER THAN THE REGION. SO VERY EXCITED ABOUT THAT.

VERY EXCITED ABOUT THE PROGRESS THAT WE MADE.

OK, SO THAT'S HIGH SCHOOL.

SO NOW LET'S LOOK AT READING AND LET'S LOOK AT GRADES THREE THROUGH EIGHT.

OK, SO THIS FIRST SLIDE IS THE SAME AS WE SAW THE FIRST HIGH SCHOOL SLIDE.

THIS IS THREE YEARS OF MISD INFORMATION COMPARED WITH THE STATE TARGET.

YOU CAN SEE THIRD GRADE, FOURTH GRADE, A LITTLE BIT OF DIPS, FIFTH, SIXTH, SEVENTH AND EIGHTH. AGAIN, WE SEE SOME DIPS, BUT THAT'S TO BE EXPECTED.

AND YOU KNOW AS WELL AS I DO IS THAT LAST YEAR ALL WE HEARD WAS THE GAPS THAT OUR KIDS WERE GETTING. THE LEARNING LOSS THE COVID SLIDE AND HONESTLY, WE WEREN'T REALLY SURE WHAT OUR NUMBERS WERE GOING TO LOOK LIKE, AND IF WE'RE BEING HONEST, WHEN WE GOT THE NUMBERS, WE WERE LIKE, OK, HERE'S OUR NUMBERS.

BUT WHAT IS THIS? IS THIS EVEN GOOD? BUT THEN WHEN WE STARTED GETTING COMPARISON DATA AND YOU LOOK NOW AT OUR READING SCORES COMPARED TO THE STATE AND THE REGION, AGAIN, WE OUTPERFORMED OUR REGION, SCHOOLS AND OUR STATE BY QUITE A LOT IN READING AGAIN.

SO THAT'S THIRD THROUGH EIGHT.

NEXT SLIDE IS MATH.

AND I WILL TELL YOU THAT THE RESEARCH SAYS THAT MATH WAS GOING TO BE MORE IMPACTED THAN READING KIDS THAT WERE VIRTUAL OR KIDS THAT JUST WEREN'T IN SCHOOL FOR A WHILE.

THEY COULD READ AT HOME.

YOU CAN READ STUFF IN YOUR HOUSE, THEIR BOOKS OR MAGAZINES.

THERE'S A CEREAL BOX, BUT YOU DON'T HAVE A LOT OF OPPORTUNITIES TO DO ALGEBRA ONE JUST SITTING AT HOME. SO WE KNEW THAT MATH WAS GOING TO TAKE A BIGGER HIT THAN READING.

AND SO YOU CAN SEE THAT WE HAVE SOME BIGGER DIPS IN MATH AS YOU LOOK AT OUR THREE YEAR TRENDS. AND SO THAT REALLY DIDN'T SURPRISE US.

WE EXPECTED THAT.

BUT I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT THAT YOU SEE THAT WE DID TAKE BIGGER DIPS IN MATH THAN WE DID IN READING. HOWEVER, IF YOU LOOK AT US AND COMPARE US TO THE REGION AND THE STATE, AGAIN, WE OUTPERFORMED THE ONLY AREA WHERE WE DIDN'T OUTPERFORM THE REGION OR THE STATE IN ALL OF THE TEST WAS EIGHTH GRADE MATH.

IN MANSFIELD, WE HAVE OVER 40 PERCENT OF OUR EIGHTH GRADERS TAKING ALGEBRA ONE, SO THEY DON'T EVEN TAKE THE EIGHTH GRADE TEST.

AND SO WHAT WE KNOW IS THE MAJORITY OF STUDENTS THAT ARE TAKING THAT EIGHTH GRADE TEST ARE TYPICALLY THE ONES THAT STRUGGLE A LITTLE MORE WITH MATH.

WE ALSO KNOW AND SOMETHING THAT WE'RE PROUD OF IS WE HAD A 95 PERCENT PARTICIPATION RATE ON STAAR AND EOC.

SO 95 PERCENT OF OUR KIDS SHOWED UP TO TEST.

IN A LOT OF DISTRICTS, THEY WERE IN SOME CASES, PUSHING THE OPT OUT, TELLING KIDS YOU DON'T HAVE TO COME TEST.

AND SO I THINK THE FACT THAT WE HAD 95 PERCENT OF OUR KIDS TEST IS PART OF THAT STORY.

BUT NOW WE KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THEY ARE AND HOW WE CAN HELP THEM MOVING FORWARD.

AND SO, AGAIN, WE OUTPERFORMED REGION AND STATE IN EVERY CATEGORY EXCEPT FOR THAT ONE EIGHTH GRADE MATH. SO NOW LET'S LOOK AT WRITING.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THE WRITING TEST IS GOING AWAY.

IT'S GOING TO ACTUALLY BE COMBINED INTO THE READING TEST.

BUT YOU CAN SEE OUR THREE YEARS INFORMATION AND SO YOU CAN SEE A LITTLE SLIGHT DIP IN FOURTH GRADE AND SEVENTH GRADE.

BUT HERE, WHEN WE COMPARE US TO THE REGION AND THE STATE, AGAIN, WE OUTPERFORMED IN BOTH OF THOSE TEST. AND FINALLY, SCIENCE AND SOCIAL STUDIES IN FIFTH AND EIGHTH GRADE SCIENCE, YOU CAN SEE WE HAD A LITTLE BIT OF DIP, A LITTLE BIGGER DIP IN FIFTH GRADE, BUT OUR EIGHTH GRADE HELD REALLY STRONG.

AND THEN SOCIAL STUDIES HAD A LITTLE BIT OF A DIP THERE WITH OUR EIGHTH GRADE SOCIAL STUDIES TEST COMPARING AGAIN TO THE REGION AND THE STATE WE OUTPERFORMED IN ALL THREE

[00:35:03]

TEST. SO NOW LET'S GET TO THE FUN STUFF, YOU'VE SEEN THESE SLIDES BEFORE, THE GREEN IS GOOD WHERE WE COMPARE OURSELVES TO THE REGION.

AND SO WHAT I WANT TO SHOW, WHAT I WANT TO DO ON THIS FIRST SLIDE IS EXPLAIN THE SETUP OF THE SLIDE AND THEN GO QUICKLY THROUGH THE TEST IN THE BLUE.

IN THAT FIRST COLUMN, YOU'LL SEE SURROUNDING DISTRICTS.

SO NEIGHBORING DISTRICTS, THERE'S ARLINGTON, THERE'S GRAND PRAIRIE, DUNCANVILLE, H URST-EULESS-BEDFORD, KELLER, MIDLOTHIAN.

SO ALL THESE DISTRICTS THAT ARE AROUND US, THEN YOU SEE OUR SCORES HIGHLIGHTED IN YELLOW.

AND THEN THIRD FROM THE BOTTOM, YOU'LL SEE REGION 11 SCORES.

AND IN THE VERY LAST ROW, YOU SEE THE STATE SCORES.

OUR SCORES ARE HIGHLIGHTED.

SO FOR A READING THIRD GRADE, 81 PERCENT OF OUR KIDS APPROACHED, 51 PERCENT MEETS 26 PERCENT MASTERS. AGAIN, WE FOCUS ON THAT 51.

IF WE'D HAVE JUST SHOWN YOU THE APPROACHES SCORES 81 LOOKS A LOT BETTER.

OK, BUT AGAIN, WE'RE FOCUSED ON KIDS BEING ON LEVEL OR HIGHER.

BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THIS SLIDE, ANY SLIDE, ANY BOX THAT IS GREEN MEANS THAT WE OUTPERFORM THAT SCHOOL IN THAT AREA.

SO ALL OF THOSE AREAS THAT ARE GREEN MEAN WE BEAT THE SCORES OF THOSE DISTRICTS.

SO IF YOU LOOK AT KELLER RIGHT ABOVE US IN THIRD GRADE READING, THEY WERE ONE POINT BETTER THAN US IN MASTERS.

YOU KNOW, THIRD GRADE READING HAS BEEN A FOCUS OF OURS WITH VISION 2020.

AND I THINK YOU CAN SEE THAT WHAT WE'RE DOING IS WORKING BECAUSE OUR KIDS ARE READING ON LEVEL OR ABOVE AND THEN STAYING ON LEVEL.

SO IF YOU LOOK AT THIRD GRADE MATH, WE OUTPERFORMED EVERYONE IN THE REGION IN APPROACHES, MEETS, AND MASTERS EXCEPT FOR RIGHT BELOW MIDLOTHIAN, BEAT US BY A COUPLE OF POINTS.

SO THE MORE GREEN ON A SLIDE, THE BETTER.

AND SO TO ME, THIS IS A GREAT PICTURE AGAIN AND A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO CELEBRATE THE AMAZING WORK THAT TOOK PLACE LAST YEAR.

SO I'M GOING TO GO QUICKLY THROUGH THESE NEXT BY GRADE LEVEL SO YOU CAN SEE FOURTH GRADE READING, MATH AND WRITING.

AGAIN, PHENOMENAL RESULTS.

YOU SEE KELLER, MIDLOTHIAN, HEB.

SOMETIMES THOSE DISTRICTS ARE SHOWING UP WHITE.

THESE ARE DISTRICTS THAT WE REGULARLY COLLABORATE WITH.

THEY HAVE THE SAME MINDSET WE HAVE REGARDING CURRICULUM.

AND SO YOU'RE GOING TO SEE THAT A COUPLE OF TIMES.

WE'LL FLIP FLOP WITH THEM.

BUT PRETTY MUCH STEADY OUTPERFORMING THE OTHER PEOPLE ON THE CHART.

SO THEN YOU LOOK AT FIFTH GRADE, A LITTLE MORE WHITE THERE, BUT AGAIN, VERY CLOSE WITHIN ONE OR TWO POINTS. AND MOST OF THOSE AREAS SO MORE GREEN, WHICH IS GREAT.

SIXTH GRADE READING AND MATH.

AGAIN, LOTS OF GREEN, SEVENTH GRADE, SAME THING.

YOU LOOK AT 8TH GRADE, WE MENTIONED THAT 8TH GRADE MATH WAS OUR ONE AREA THAT WE WERE BEHIND THE REGION AND THE STATE ON, AND SO YOU CAN SEE THAT THERE BECAUSE THAT SLIDE HAS MORE WHITE ON IT THAN ANY OF THE OTHER SLIDES.

AND THEN NOW IF WE MOVE TO HIGH SCHOOL, YOU KNOW, WE'VE HAD A HUGE FOCUS ON ALGEBRA ONE.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE ALGEBRA ONE SCREEN THERE, ALL THAT GREEN EXCEPT FOR TWO BOXES.

AND AGAIN, IT'S JUST ONE TO TWO PERCENTAGE POINTS OFF.

BIOLOGY AGAIN, GREEN ENGLISH ONE AND ENGLISH TWO.

I TOLD YOU THAT ENGLISH TWO JUST ROCKED IT.

AND THEY DID INCREDIBLY WELL.

AND YOU CAN SEE THAT WITH THE GREEN THERE.

AND THEN OUR LAST TEST TO LOOK AT IS U.S.

HISTORY AND U.S.

HISTORY. YOU KNOW, 93 PERCENT OF OUR KIDS APPROACHES.

THAT'S INCREDIBLE. AND THEN YOU SEE 78 AND THEN 49 PERCENT.

SO AGAIN, THAT LAST SLIDE THERE, LOTS OF GREEN, LOTS OF CELEBRATION.

SO JUST A REMINDER, GREEN IS GOOD.

AND IF WE'RE REALLY BEING HONEST, GREEN IS CRAZY GOOD IN A COVID PANDEMIC YEAR THAT WE JUST WENT THROUGH. AND AGAIN, I JUST I CAN'T EMPHASIZE ENOUGH THE WORK OUR TEACHERS DID THIS LAST YEAR. I CAN'T EMPHASIZE ENOUGH THE CURRICULUM COORDINATORS, THE PRINCIPALS.

WE HAD TEACHERS GOING FROM VIRTUAL TO FACE TO FACE.

WE HAD KIDS WITH DISRUPTIONS IN LEARNING.

AND SO IN SPITE OF ALL OF THAT, OUR KIDS PERFORMED.

AND THAT'S SOMETHING I THINK AS A SCHOOL DISTRICT WE HAVE TO BE REALLY PROUD OF AND WE HAVE TO CELEBRATE. SO WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE US AND WHERE ARE WE GOING FROM HERE? WE KNOW THAT WE HAVE GAPS THAT WE USUALLY DON'T HAVE.

WE KNOW THAT WE HAVE KIDS THAT LOST A LOT OF FACE TO FACE TIME WITH TEACHERS.

WE KNOW IN THE PANDEMIC THEY DIDN'T ALL GET TO SIT IN THE FLOOR AND PLAY WITH MANIPULATIVES AND WE DIDN'T GET TO HAVE STATION WORK.

[00:40:01]

AND SO A LOT OF THE THINGS THAT WE DO DAY IN AND DAY OUT IN OUR CLASSROOMS WERE INTERRUPTED LAST YEAR.

AND SO WE KNOW THAT THIS YEAR GOING INTO IT, KIDS ARE GOING TO COME TO US WITH GAPS.

AND AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, WE'RE ALREADY ADDRESSING THOSE IN OUR CURRICULUM.

WE'RE ALREADY MAKING PLANS TO FOCUS ON THAT.

BUT I WANT YOU TO NOTICE THAT THIS ISN'T SOMETHING THAT WILL BE FIXED IN ONE YEAR.

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO CONTINUE TO WORK ON.

BUT IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT FOR US THAT WE DON'T FALL INTO A REMEDIATION MINDSET WHERE WE'RE JUST FOCUSING ON LET'S FIX THE PROBLEM.

WE STILL HAVE TO FOCUS ON THAT TIER ONE INSTRUCTION IN THE CLASSROOM BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT KIDS TO FALL BEHIND BECAUSE, WELL, WE'RE PULLING THEM OUT OF CLASS TO TRY TO TEACH THEM SOMETHING THEY DIDN'T GET LAST YEAR.

WE'VE GOT TO STILL STAY FOCUSED ON OUR TIER ONE INSTRUCTION.

AND THAT'S OUR PLAN MOVING FORWARD.

AGAIN, WE WILL ADDRESS THE GAPS.

AND AGAIN, JUST KNOW THAT IT'S GOING TO TAKE A COUPLE OF YEARS TO RECOVER FROM THAT.

I WILL TELL YOU THAT DR.

CANTU HAS STATED TO US REPEATEDLY THIS SUMMER THAT OUR FOCUS THIS YEAR ON PEOPLE AND PEOPLE MATTER AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE KIDS THAT COME INTO OUR CLASSROOM THAT MAY NOT HAVE BEEN IN AN ACTUAL PHYSICAL CLASS FOR 15 MONTHS.

AND THEY'RE GOING TO COME TO US WITH INSTRUCTIONAL NEEDS, BUT THEY'RE ALSO GOING TO COME TO US WITH SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL NEEDS.

AND SO WE'VE GOT TO BE PREPARED TO MEET THEM WHERE THEY ARE AND TAKE THEM WHERE WE NEED THEM TO BE. AND WE'VE GOT THE PEOPLE IN PLACE TO DO THAT.

WE'VE GOT GREAT LEADERS ON THE CAMPUSES AND OUR PRINCIPALS.

I THINK YOU CAN SEE ARE UP FOR THE CHALLENGE.

AND I KNOW THAT THEY'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO HELP THOSE KIDS AND GET THEM WHERE THEY NEED TO BE. THE LAST THING I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU, BECAUSE I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND AND HEAR THIS BEFORE YOU START HEARING FROM COMMUNITY MEMBERS THAT MIGHT HAVE QUESTIONS.

IN THIS LAST LEGISLATIVE SESSION, A HOUSE BILL WAS PASSED.

HOUSE BILL 45 45 AND THIS HOUSE BILL REALLY ADDRESSES THREE THINGS.

FIRST OF ALL, IT REMOVES GRADE LEVEL PROMOTION.

IN THE PAST, IF I WAS A FIFTH GRADER OR AN EIGHTH GRADER, IF I FAILED STAAR, I COULD NOT GO TO THE NEXT LEVEL UNLESS A GRADE PLACEMENT COMMITTEE APPROVED ME TO MOVE TO THE NEXT LEVEL. SO PASSING 5TH AND 8TH GRADE STAAR WAS A REQUIREMENT TO MOVE ON.

HOUSE BILL 45 45 REMOVES THAT GUIDELINE.

AND SO WE NOW NO LONGER WILL RETAIN A STUDENT JUST BECAUSE THEY FAILED THE STAAR TEST IN 5TH OR 8TH GRADE. HOWEVER, THERE ARE TWO OTHER IMPORTANT PIECES OF LEGISLATION.

PART OF THIS LEGISLATION MANDATES THAT ANY STUDENT WHO FAILED A STAAR OR EOC TEST HAS TO HAVE AN ACCELERATED LEARNING PLAN.

SO IF KAREN MARCUCCI WAS AN 8TH GRADER THIS YEAR AND SHE FAILED READING AND MATH, SHE CAN STILL MOVE ON TO NINTH GRADE.

BUT WHAT THIS HOUSE BILL STATES IS THAT SHE NOW HAS TO HAVE 30 HOURS OF ACCELERATED LEARNING FOR MATH AND SHE HAS TO HAVE 30 HOURS OF ACCELERATED LEARNING FOR READING.

AND SO. ANOTHER CAVEAT IS WE CAN'T PULL HER OUT OF HER CLASSES TO GIVE HER THIS ACCELERATED LEARNING AND WE CAN'T TAKE HER OUT OF ELECTIVES TO GIVE HER HER ACCELERATED LEARNING. SO WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON RIGHT NOW WITH PRINCIPALS IS HOW CAN WE MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR STUDENTS WITHIN THE SCHOOL DAY? AND THEN IF WE CAN'T GET ALL 30 OR 60 HOURS IN THE SCHOOL DAY, HOW CAN WE ADDRESS THAT WITH AFTER SCHOOL TUTORING? AND SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE'RE GETTING READY TO SUBMIT TO SUBMIT TO MS. TRONGAARD IS SOME REQUESTS FOR ESSER FUNDS TO HELP US WITH THAT TUTORING AND THOSE EXTRA INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS THAT WE MIGHT NEED.

PART OF 45 45 ALSO STATES THAT IF KAREN MARCUCCI OPTED OUT OF THE STAAR TEST.

AND AS AN 8TH GRADER, SHE SAID, DAD, I DON'T WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL AND TAKE THE TEST.

AND HE SAID, OK, SO IF SHE DIDN'T TAKE THE TEST, WE HAVE TO GIVE HER 30 HOURS OF ACCELERATED INSTRUCTION UNLESS SHE CAN TAKE A TEST AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR AND PROVE TO US THAT SHE'S ON GRADE LEVEL OR ABOVE.

AND SO WE'RE GETTING READY TO COMMUNICATE WITH PARENTS WHOSE KIDS FALL INTO THIS CRITERIA.

AND SO I JUST WANT YOU TO BE AWARE THAT WE'RE FOLLOWING THE LETTER OF THE LAW AND WE'RE GOING TO MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR KIDS.

AND WE'RE BEING VERY CREATIVE ABOUT HOW WE CAN DO THAT IN THE SCHOOL DAY, BECAUSE THE LAST THING WE WANT TO DO IS PULL THEM OUT OF BAND OR CHOIR OR ATHLETICS, BECAUSE WE JUST HEARD HOW IMPORTANT THOSE THINGS ARE FOR THEIR EDUCATION.

BUT I DO WANT YOU TO BE AWARE THAT THIS IS SOMETHING WE'RE WORKING ON.

OUR PRINCIPALS AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS HAVE ALREADY COME UP WITH PLANS AND THEY'RE WORKING ON HOW BEST TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE KIDS AND WE'LL BE ASKING FOR SOME ESSER FUNDS TO HELP PAY FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF HOUSE BILL 45 45.

OK, SO THAT WAS A LOT OF INFORMATION.

AND SO AT THIS TIME, I'LL OPEN IT UP FOR QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE.

[00:45:01]

THANK YOU, MRS. YOUNG. TO MY LEFT, KAREN.

I GET TO ASK QUESTIONS FIRST BECAUSE YOU PICKED ON ME.

ABSOLUTELY.

AND I LOOK FORWARD TO THE MATH INSTRUCTION, MAYBE NOT THE OTHER.

BUT FIRST OF ALL, I JUST WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU TO PARENTS THAT SENT THEIR STUDENTS TO TAKE THE TEST BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, THE TEST IS QUITE CONTROVERSIAL.

AND I UNDERSTAND THE VALUE THAT IT MAY OR MAY NOT ADD.

BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, LOOKING AT THE DATA COLLECTIVELY, IT HELPS US, AS YOU TALKED ABOUT, WITH THE CURRICULUM AND FIGURE OUT HOW WE'RE GOING TO DO THAT.

SO I REALLY DO APPRECIATE ESPECIALLY THOSE VIRTUAL LEARNERS WHERE THAT WAS A LITTLE NERVE RACKING TO COME IN.

SO I REALLY, REALLY JUST WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU TO PARENTS BECAUSE THIS DATA HELPS US, ABSOLUTELY, SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS.

BUT I WAS WONDERING ALONG THOSE LINES, HAVE WE LEARNED ANYTHING TO VIRTUAL VERSUS IN-PERSON LIKE WE TALKED ABOUT THE MANIPULATIVENESS AND THINGS LIKE THAT? A LOT OF THAT WASN'T HAPPENING IN PERSON.

SO WE FEEL LIKE THEY WEREN'T GETTING QUITE THE SAME LEVEL OF EDUCATION THAT THEY WERE ABLE TO GET PREVIOUSLY.

AND WHEN I LOOK AT THIS INFORMATION, I SEE THE HIGH SCHOOL WAS IMPACTED THE LEAST.

AND I THINK PART OF IT IS BECAUSE OF THE WAY HIGH SCHOOLERS LEARN VERSUS YOUNGER KIDS.

SO WHAT ARE THE KEY TAKEAWAYS? WELL, A COUPLE OF THINGS.

FIRST OF ALL, I THINK WE KNEW KIND OF GOING IN THAT OUR OLDER LEARNERS MIGHT BE LESS IMPACTED JUST BECAUSE THEY ALREADY HAD THAT BASE KNOWLEDGE.

AND WHAT WE FELT LIKE WERE OUR PRE-K, KINDER, FIRST, SECOND GRADE, THOSE WERE THE KIDS WHERE SO MANY OF THOSE FOUNDATIONAL SKILLS ARE DONE WITH THEIR PEERS.

THEY'RE DONE THROUGH COLLABORATIVE LEARNING.

WE FELT LIKE THAT WAS GOING TO BE THE BIGGEST IMPACT, BECAUSE EVEN AS YOU KNOW, IF YOU TALK ABOUT KINDER OR FIRST GRADERS EVEN TEACHING THEM HOW TO WRITE, HOW DO YOU DO THAT VIRTUALLY? HOW DO YOU HOLD YOUR PEN? HOW DO YOU HOLD YOUR PENCIL? AND SO WE REALLY BELIEVE THAT THAT IS SOMETHING WE HAVE TO FOCUS ON MOVING FORWARD, GETTING BACK TO GETTING YOUR HANDS DIRTY AND WORKING WITH STATIONS AND WORKING WITH MANIPULATIVES. AND GETTING BACK TO THAT COLLABORATIVE PIECE WHERE I'M TALKING ABOUT MY LEARNING WITH MY NOT JUST MY TEACHER, BUT WITH A PEER.

AND THAT'S THE PIECE.

THAT ENGAGEMENT PIECE IS WHAT WAS LACKING NOT JUST IN OUR VIRTUAL KIDS, BUT EVEN IN FACE TO FACE BECAUSE WE WERE TRYING TO MAINTAIN SIX FEET OF DISTANCE.

AND SO THAT'S HARD TO BE INTERACTIVE WHEN YOU'RE SPREAD OUT.

AND SO I THINK THE IMPACT IS GOING TO BE OBVIOUSLY BIGGER ON OUR KIDS THAT WERE VIRTUAL THE MAJORITY OF TIME. BUT I THINK THE IMPACT REALLY WAS DISTRICT WIDE.

AND GOING WITH YOUR QUESTION ABOUT THE OR YOUR STATEMENT ABOUT THE TIER ONE INSTRUCTION.

YOU KNOW, THAT'S WHERE THE FOCUS IS.

MY GOODNESS. HOW MUCH WORK HAVE YOU ALL HAD TO DO? BECAUSE IF YOU'VE GOT A, YOU KNOW, FIRST GRADERS THAT DIDN'T GET THE INSTRUCTION IN KINDERGARTEN, REALLY ABOUT HOW TO HOLD A PENCIL OR LEARN BAD HABITS, THAT THAT'S A LOT OF REVISION, YOU KNOW. ABSOLUTELY.

AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT OUR COORDINATORS ARE SO GREAT AT IS OUR CURRICULUM DOCUMENTS SAY THIS IS WHAT WE NEED TO BE TEACHING FOR ON LEVEL.

BUT WHEN KIDS ARE BEHIND ON SOMETHING, HERE'S WHERE WE CAN SPIRAL THOSE SKILLS AND THAT CONTENT IN WHERE WE'RE NOT STOPPING AND SAYING, OK, THESE KIDS DIDN'T GET IT NOW.

THE WHOLE CLASS IS GOING TO STOP.

BUT WE'VE IN OUR CURRICULUM DOCUMENT HAVE ACTIVITIES AND PROCESSES FOR TEACHERS TO BUILD THAT IN WHERE YOU'RE STILL MOVING FORWARD WITH THE CURRICULUM BUT TRYING TO REMEDIATE THOSE SKILLS THAT WERE LOST OR ARE MISSING.

WELL, I REALLY APPRECIATE THAT WORK, BECAUSE I THINK THAT THAT WILL PAY OFF DIVIDENDS LATER, TOO, BECAUSE SOMETIMES YOU DON'T SEE THE GAPS UNTIL LATER.

AND I THINK WE HAD TALKED A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS BEFORE, DR.

CANTU, LIKE AS WE MOVE FORWARD THROUGH ALL OF THIS, I REALLY DIDN'T WANT US TO THROW OUT THE BABY WITH THE BATHWATER, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? LIKE, OH, MY GOSH, EVERYTHING'S DIFFERENT.

AND WE HAVE TO FOCUS ON THIS, THAT OR THE OTHER.

BUT I MY HOPE IS, IS THAT THE THING THAT'S DIFFERENT NOW IS THE QUANTITY OF STUDENTS THAT ARE AFFECTED. BUT IF WE CAN FIND SOME EFFECTIVE METHODS THAT WORK FOR THAT LARGE GROUP OF STUDENTS, THAT WE'LL BE ABLE TO RETAIN THAT.

SO AS THE YEARS GO FORWARD, INSTEAD OF HAVING, YOU KNOW, 10 KIDS IN A CLASSROOM THAT HAVE THIS ISSUE, WE'VE GOT ONE KID. BUT LOOK AT ALL THE SKILLS WE LEARN, LIKE WE KNOW HOW WE CAN REALLY IMPACT THESE KIDS.

SO I REALLY APPRECIATE THAT AND JUST REALLY APPRECIATE THE LEVEL OF WORK THAT'S GOING TO GO INTO THAT. AND I DON'T THINK WE FIGURED IT ALL OUT.

OH, ABSOLUTELY. AND I THINK, YOU KNOW, WE WON'T REALLY KNOW UNTIL THE KIDS ARE THERE.

AND I THINK THE BEAUTY OF THE TEACHERS IN MANSFIELD IS THEY KNOW THEY HAVE THE CURRICULUM THERE THAT THEY CAN USE.

BUT REALLY THE ART OF TEACHING IS GETTING IN THERE WITH YOUR KIDS AND FINDING OUT WHAT THEY NEED. AND SOMETIMES WHAT THEY NEED CAN'T BE REFLECTED IN A TEST SCORE.

BUT IT'S JUST MEETING KIDS WHERE THEY ARE TO GET THEM WHERE THEY NEED TO BE.

AND I THINK OUR TEACHERS DO A GREAT JOB WITH THAT.

GOODNESS. SO WHATEVER WE CAN DO TO SUPPORT THEM, YOU KNOW, AS YOU START TO FIND THOSE THINGS, PLEASE, YOU KNOW, LET US KNOW, BECAUSE, AGAIN, I DON'T THINK WE FIGURED IT ALL OUT. SO WHATEVER WE CAN DO TO HELP WOULD BE FANTASTIC.

[00:50:02]

SO ANYWAY, I JUST WANTED TO ASK THOSE FEW QUESTIONS AND GET A LITTLE BIT MORE INSIGHT TO THAT, SO THANK YOU. ANY OTHER COMMENTS TO MY LEFT? TO MY RIGHT? MR. DAVIS. THANK YOU FOR THIS IS REALLY GOOD INFORMATION.

I DID HAVE A QUESTION REGARDING AND I'M NOT SURE IF IT WAS JUST AN ANOMALY OR WHAT HAVE YOU, BUT IF MEMORY SERVES ME RIGHT AS GOING LOOKING BACK IN GRADE SIX, WHICH WE ARE RISING SEVENTH GRADERS ACROSS THE DISCIPLINES, THEY WERE LOWER SCORES THAN EVERY OTHER GRADE. SO IS IT JUST AN ANOMALY? THAT'S THE CASE. AND I THINK EIGHTH GRADE WAS NOT TO THE SAME DEGREE, BUT ALSO WAS DOWN THAT STRETCH. WE OFTEN SEE DIPS IN SIXTH GRADE.

SO IT REALLY WASN'T AN ANOMALY THIS YEAR.

BUT AND IT'S NOT JUST MISD IT'S STATEWIDE.

YOU SEE A LOT OF DIP AT SIX GRADE LEVEL.

AND BUT THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WE'RE AWARE OF.

AND WE HAVE NOT JUST THIS YEAR, BUT IN PREVIOUSLY IN PREVIOUS YEARS, BEEN WORKING ON THAT. AND AGAIN, IF YOU LOOK AT HOW WE HOW OUR SCHOOLS ARE STRUCTURED, WE HAVE THAT FIFTH, SIXTH GRADE CENTER.

AND, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF CAMPUSES DO THE MIDDLE, THE SIXTH, SEVENTH AND EIGHTH.

AND SO, YOU KNOW, WHEN WE HAVE THEM AT FIFTH GRADE, THEY DON'T ALL OF A SUDDEN FORGET EVERYTHING WHEN THEY GET TO SIXTH GRADE.

AND SO WE REALLY THINK THAT THE WAY THE CURRICULUM GOES FROM FIFTH TO SIXTH GRADE, WE'RE JUST GOING TO HAVE TO CONTINUE TO BUILD UP THOSE THAT SPIRALED IN REVIEW TO JUST SUPPORT THAT AS THEY MOVE UP IN RIGOR.

BUT AGAIN, THAT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT WAS JUST THIS YEAR.

WE'VE SEEN THAT IN PREVIOUS YEARS AS WELL.

THAT'S GOOD INFORMATION TO HAVE. THANK YOU, MR. CANEDY. THANK YOU.

MS. YOUNG FOR A REALLY A GREAT PRESENTATION AND I AGREE WITH ONE OF THE STATEMENTS YOU MADE THAT, YOU KNOW, IT'S GOING TO BE PROBABLY TWO YEARS OUT BEFORE WE REALLY SEE THE IMPACT THAT COVID HAD ON EDUCATION.

THE ONE THING THAT I THINK AS YOU LOOK AT THE COMPARISONS BETWEEN 18 AND 19, AND THEN, OF COURSE, WE DIDN'T HAVE DATA FOR 20.

BUT YOU SEE LIFT AND EACH ONE OF THOSE YEARS.

SO THAT TELLS US THAT WE WERE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT.

AND I'M CONFIDENT THAT 20 WOULD HAVE SHOWED US THAT THERE WOULD EVEN BE MORE LIFT BETWEEN 19 AND 20.

SO MUCH TO WHAT MS. MARCUCCI SAID, YOU KNOW, WE WERE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT.

SO WE REALLY NEED TO REVISIT THAT.

AND, OF COURSE, OBVIOUSLY EXPAND UPON THAT BECAUSE WE'LL HAVE UNIQUE NEEDS GOING INTO THIS YEAR AND NEXT YEAR.

BUT JUST MAKE SURE THAT WE SAW PROGRESS AND THAT WE CONTINUE WITH THAT SAME LEVEL OF PROGRESS. AND I THINK WITHIN A COUPLE OF YEARS, WE'RE GOING TO REALLY BE ASTOUNDED BY THE NUMBERS THAT WE'VE GOT. SO THANK YOU AND REALLY THANK YOU TO ALL THE EDUCATORS THAT HAVE WORKED SO TIRELESSLY TO GET THIS DONE THIS YEAR.

THESE ARE FANTASTIC RESULTS GIVEN THE CIRCUMSTANCES.

AND JUST TO BUILD ON WHAT YOU SAID, I THINK ANYTIME YOU SEE NUMBERS THAT YOU'RE NOT USED TO SEEING, THERE'S A TENDENCY TO KNEE JERK AND THINK THE SKY IS FALLING AND, OH, WE'VE GOT TO CHANGE WHAT WE'RE DOING.

BUT TO YOUR POINT, WHAT WE'RE DOING WORKS AND WE KNOW THAT.

AND SO WE'VE GOT TO CONTINUE THAT TIER ONE INSTRUCTION AND MAKING SURE THAT WHAT WE'RE DOING EVERY DAY IN THE CLASSROOM IS GOOD, SOLID QUALITY.

AND THEN THE KIDS THAT AREN'T GETTING IT, WE BUILD THAT REVIEW IN FOR THEM.

BUT WE DON'T JUST STOP WHAT WE'RE DOING BECAUSE WE'VE HAD A DIP.

SO I THINK THAT'S IMPORTANT.

MS. CANTU AND MS. CANEDY, ONE THING THAT WE'VE TALKED ABOUT AS A LEADERSHIP TEAM AND HAD BEEN SPENT SOME TIME WITH PRINCIPALS AND JUST HAVE HAD A LOT OF CONVERSATION ABOUT IS, TO YOUR POINT, WHAT WE KNOW, WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING WORKS AND WE ARE REALLY FOCUSING ON GETTING BACK TO THE BASICS OF WHAT WE DO, MAKING SURE THAT PRINCIPALS AND CAMPUSES HAVE TRAINING AND SUPPORTS ON THOSE BASIC FOUNDATIONAL PIECES THAT WE ALL STARTED AT THE ONSET OF VISION 20 20. SO AS WE ARE AT THE BEGINNING OF VISION 2030 IS GOING BACK AND REVISITING THOSE FOUNDATIONAL PIECES AS WELL, BECAUSE WE KNOW WE'RE GOOD AT WHAT WE'RE GOOD AT.

AND JUST ALSO A QUICK SHOUT OUT TO OUR STAFF, OUR TEACHERS, PEOPLE AT THE CAMPUS LEVEL AND TO ALL THE PEOPLE IN THE CONSTRUCTION DEPARTMENT FOR THE WORK THAT THEY'VE DONE OVER THIS PAST YEAR JUST TO HAVE THAT MUCH GREEN AFTER WHAT WE'VE ALL EXPERIENCED AND WHAT OUR KIDS HAVE EXPERIENCED IS JUST IS A TESTAMENT TO THEIR INCREDIBLE ABILITY TO PUT STUDENTS FIRST. THANK YOU, MS. YOUNG. THIS WAS AN INCREDIBLE PRESENTATION.

WE KNOW THAT DATA HELPS US TO MAKE DECISIONS.

AND I THINK THAT WE HAVE A HISTORY, A LONG STANDING HISTORY OF USING DATA TO MAKE DECISIONS. SO THIS WAS A REALLY IMPORTANT PRESENTATION.

AND MOST OF US WENT INTO THIS.

WE WANTED TO OPEN THAT POWERPOINT WITH ONE EYEBALL BECAUSE WE WERE NOT SURE SPEAKERS] THAT'S HOW WE WERE WHEN WE GOT THE SCORES, I KNOW THEY WERE LIKE, HEY WE GOT THE SCORES I WAS LIKE DON'T TELL ME. BUT, YOU KNOW, I COULDN'T BE ANY MORE PROUD AND EXCITED. AND TO START OFF THIS SCHOOL YEAR THIS WAY WITH GREEN IS GOOD.

AND THEN I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYBODY UNDERSTANDS AND REMEMBERS THAT IT WAS

[00:55:05]

MS. YOUNG WHO COINED THE TERM DOUBLE HOLY COW FOR HOW WE DID FOR STAAR TESTING FOR THE 2020 SCHOOL YEAR.

SO THANK YOU SO MUCH.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU. AND WITH THAT, WE'RE GOING TO MOVE ON TO EIGHT POINT ONE DISCUSSION

[8. Discussion]

OF BOARD COMMITTEE POSITIONS AND LIAISON'S.

SO YOU GUYS ON THE BOARD, I'VE SENT OUT AN EMAIL REGARDING THE PREVIOUS [INAUDIBLE] FROM PREVIOUS COMMITTEES WERE WERE ASSIGNED AND THAT WE WERE TASKED TO DO SO.

I HAVE RECEIVED SOME EMAILS WITH YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS AND SUGGESTIONS FOR WHAT YOU'D LIKE TO DO IF YOU HAVEN'T SENT ONE TO ME.

PLEASE SEND YOUR REQUEST TO ME AND WE CAN MOVE FORWARD WITH THAT.

IS THERE ANYTHING THAT ANYBODY WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS THIS TIME ABOUT BOARD COMMITTEES? ALL RIGHT, WITH THAT, THAT MOVES US TO PUBLIC COMMENTS, NINE POINT ONE, THE CORRECT

[9. Public Comments]

PROCEDURE FOR ADDRESSING THE BOARD DURING PUBLIC COMMENTS IS AS FOLLOWS.

EACH SPEAKER SHOULD ADDRESS THE BOARD FROM THE PODIUM, MICROPHONE AND STATE HIS OR HER NAME BEFORE SPEAKING.

ALL SPEAKERS WILL BE LIMITED TO THREE MINUTES TO MAKE COMMENTS REGARDING ITEMS ON THE AGENDA. COPIES OF PRESENTATION SHOULD BE MADE AVAILABLE TO ALL TRUSTEES AND THE SUPERINTENDENT. BOARD POLICY PROHIBITS THE DISCUSSION OF COMPLAINTS AGAINST DISTRICT EMPLOYEES DURING AN OPEN FORUM.

MS. MOYE, IS THERE ANY OTHER CARDS? ALL RIGHT, I HAVE THREE CARDS THIS EVENING, SO OUR FIRST SPEAKER IS MS. SUSAN HOLLINGSHEAD, IF YOU CAN COME UP TO THE PODIUM.

GOOD EVENING, HOW ARE YOU ALL? MY NAME IS SUSAN SMITH HOLLINGSHEAD.

I'M A MOM AND I WANTED TO COMMEND YOU ALL FOR VOTING TO APPOINT MR. SNEED TO PLACE SEVEN.

I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT I MOVED TO MANSFIELD IN 2013 FROM FORT WORTH.

I HAD A LOT OF CHOICES WHERE WE COULD MOVE.

WE MOVED TO START A FAMILY.

AND I'M FROM CLEBURNE.

I KNOW THE AREA.

I KNOW THE SCHOOLS.

I KNOW THE DISTRICTS I KNOW ALL THE STUFF.

AND WE COULD HAVE MOVED TO CLEBURNE, BUT WE DECIDED NOT TO AND WE COULD HAVE MOVED TO GODLEY. BUT WE DECIDED NOT TO.

WE COULD HAVE MOVED TO JOSHUA, BUT WE DECIDED NOT TO AND WE DECIDED NOT TO MOVE TO ANY OF THOSE PLACES BECAUSE ONE AND I'M GLAD TO FOLLOW MS. YOUNG'S PRESENTATION, BECAUSE THAT'S WHY WE MOVED TO MANSFIELD WAS THE ACADEMIC RIGOR, THE STANDARDS THAT MANSFIELD HOLDS.

BUT ALSO MANSFIELD HAD SOMETHING THAT I THINK THE OTHER COMMUNITIES DIDN'T HAVE, AND THAT WAS DIVERSITY. I COULD HAVE GONE TO GODLEY, CLEBURNE, OR JOSHUA, AND I WOULD HAVE LOOKED LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE THERE.

BUT WE CAME TO MANSFIELD BECAUSE THE RACIAL DIVERSITY, THE DIVERSITY OF THOUGHT, THE DIVERSITY OF OPINION THAT MATTERS TO US, THAT MATTERS TO ME AND MY FAMILY.

AND SO THAT'S WHY WE CHOSE MANSFIELD.

AND MANSFIELD IS ABOUT 55 PERCENT WHITE.

IT'S ABOUT, I BELIEVE, 35 PERCENT AFRICAN-AMERICAN.

AND OUR STUDENTS IN MANSFIELD ISD, IT'S 31 PERCENT AFRICAN-AMERICAN AND 29 PERCENT WHITE.

AND I THINK IT'S VERY IMPORTANT THAT OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS REPRESENT THE FACE OF OUR STUDENTS AND THE FACE OF OUR COMMUNITY.

SO THANK YOU FOR VOTING FOR MR. SNEED TO FILL PLACE SEVEN.

I BELIEVE THAT'S THE VOTE THAT Y'ALL TOOK RIGHT.

BECAUSE THIS IS MY FIRST BOARD MEETING, SO I DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT I'M DOING, BUT I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU. A DIVERSITY OF OPINION, THOUGHT, DISCOURSE AND ESPECIALLY RACE WILL ONLY BENEFIT THE STUDENTS REPRESENTATION MATTERS.

YOU CANNOT BE WHAT YOU CANNOT SEE AND THANK YOU.

AND I HOPE THAT WE CAN CONTINUE TO MAKE PROGRESS TO MAKE A MORE REPRESENTATIVE AND ELECTORATE COMMUNITY THOUGHT LEADERSHIP.

THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE] THANK YOU.

OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS MR. ROBERT FISHER.

THANK YOU. MY NAME IS ROBERT FISHER MY WIFE AND I NOTICED THE RECOMMENDED BOOKS ON THE

[01:00:01]

[INAUDIBLE] FOR DEI AND FOUND IT IRONIC THAT THE BOOKS AND VIDEOS WERE NOT INCLUSIVE OF ALL PEOPLE THAT STRUGGLE WITH INCLUSION DUE TO RACE, DISABILITY AND SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS.

IF MISD WANTS TO BE INCLUSIVE, THERE WOULD BE A DIVERSE GROUP OF PEOPLE COLLABORATING TO DEVELOP MATERIAL THAT CAN TRULY BE REFERRED TO AS DEI.

WHAT I SAW WAS CRT DISGUISED AS DEI.

THE BOOKS AND ESPECIALLY THE VIDEOS THAT WERE ON THE MISD WEBSITE.

DO NOT TELL THE WHOLE TRUTH.

OUR NATION'S RACIST AND PREJUDICED HISTORY IS AN ONLY WHITE PEOPLE THAT ARE OPPRESSIVE AND ACCUSATORY OF BLACK PEOPLE.

THE EXAMPLES GIVEN WITH THE WRITINGS AND VIDEOS WERE EXTREMELY LAUGHABLE.

TO BETRAY ONLY WHITE AND BLACK RACISM MESSAGE TO OUR KIDS AND OUR COMMUNITIES IS A MISREPRESENTATION THAT WHITE PEOPLE ARE VILLAINS AND BLACK PEOPLE ARE THE VICTIMS. IT IS DIVISIVE AND NOT INCLUSIVE.

I HAVE TAUGHT MY CHILDREN TO RESPECT EVERYONE WITH DIGNITY AND RESPECT OF COLOR STATUS, BECAUSE ALL PEOPLE ARE IMAGE BEARERS OF GOD IT'S IMPORTANT FOR US TO EXPOSE OUR KIDS TO ALL DIFFERENT KINDS OF PEOPLE.

OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AND OUR CHURCH IS A VERY DIVERSE AND IS A WONDERFUL PICTURE OF WHAT AMERICAN LIFE SHOULD BE LIKE.

NOW I FIND MYSELF HAVING TO EXPLAIN TO THEM ABOUT THE OPPRESSIVE TENDENCIES OF CRT AND TO IGNORE WORDS LIKE WHITE PRIVILEGE OR WHITE SUPREMACY AS THEIR IDENTITY.

I WANT MY CHILDREN TO KNOW ABOUT ALL THE HORRIFIC ACTS OF SLAVERY AND THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA. I WANT MY CHILDREN TO KNOW ABOUT ALL THE IMMIGRANTS THAT MAKE THE U.S.

WHAT IT IS. I WANT THEM TO KNOW ABOUT THE OPPRESSION THAT TOOK PLACE ALONG WITH JIM CROW AND WHAT IT TOOK BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN OF OUR NATION TO OVERCOME THAT.

I WANT THEM TO KNOW HISTORY TO KNOW THAT THE ACTIONS OF MEN GOOD AND BAD SO THAT THEY CAN LEARN FROM THEM FOR THIS REASON.

I ALSO WANT THEM TO KNOW ABOUT MCCARTHYISM AND THE RED SCARE, WHERE PEOPLE WERE PUT IN PRISON OR WORSE, UNDER FALSE CONSPIRACIES OF TREASON DUE TO WHAT BECAME KNOWN AS THE RED SCARE. I'M CONCERNED THAT THIS IDEOLOGY OF CRT WILL CAUSE UNFOUNDED ACCUSATIONS OF RACISM AND LEAD TO DISENFRANCHISEMENT AND PERSECUTION AGAINST MY CHILDREN BECAUSE THEY WON'T TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ACTIONS OF THEIR GREAT GRANDPARENTS GENERATION.

AMERICA HAS A HORRIBLE PAST IN SLAVERY.

JIM CROW, NATIVE AMERICAN RELATIONS AND THE RED SCARE LET US NOT MAKE POOR DECISIONS TO REFLECT IDEOLOGIES THAT COULD CAUSE A WHITE SCARE RIGHT FROM OUR OWN CLASSROOMS. IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY AS A WONDERFULLY DIVERSE COMMUNITY TO INVITE HEALTHY CONVERSATIONS THROUGH WRITINGS AND VIDEOS THAT ARE TRULY INCLUSIVE OF ALL PEOPLE.

WE SHOULD ALL LOOK TO STRIVE TO TREAT EACH OTHER WITH DIGNITY AND RESPECT AND TO CELEBRATE OUR DIFFERENCES.

PLEASE ABSTAIN FROM ANY USE OF CRT IDEOLOGIES TO ENSURE THIS HAPPENS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU, SIR.

OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS JOANNA CARDOZA.

CAN YOU PLEASE RESET MY TIME? I DON'T KNOW WHO'S, I'M NOT THE RESET-ER.

GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS JOANNA CARDOZA, I AM A MISD MOM AND A COMMUNITY ADVOCATE THAT SERVES ON MANY CITY SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY BOARDS AND ADVISORY COMMITTEES.

AND I AM ALSO VERY PROUD TO SERVE ON THE DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION ADVISORY COMMITTEE THAT'S DOING REALLY GREAT WORK RIGHT NOW IN THE COMMUNITY.

I CAME HERE TODAY TO SPEAK IN REGARDS TO THE APPOINTMENT OF TRUSTEE NUMBER SEVEN.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR APPOINTING MR. SNEED. I REALLY APPRECIATE THAT.

MISD IS A MINORITY MAJORITY SCHOOL DISTRICT AND MAKING SURE THAT ALL STUDENTS IN OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT ARE REPRESENTED AS CRITICAL TO THEIR EDUCATION, PATH AND SUCCESS IN LIFE.

AFRICAN-AMERICANS MAKE UP 31.2 PERCENT OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT AND HISPANICS 26.4 PERCENT.

REPRESENTATION NOT ONLY BY RACE, BUT IN REGARDS TO SOCIOECONOMICS BY FEEDER PATTERN AS WELL THE SUMMIT FEEDER PATTERN HAS ONLY HAD ONE SCHOOL OF CHOICE FOR MANY YEARS.

YET WE ARE ABOUT TO OPEN THREE NEW SCHOOLS WITH STEM AND FINE ARTS ACADEMIES.

THIS IS NOT EQUITY. WE NEED SCHOOLS OF CHOICE THAT WILL BENEFIT OUR STUDENTS AND THAT ARE NOT BEING FORCED UPON US.

YOU JUST FINISHED HEARING A PRESENTATION ABOUT ATHLETICS IN OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT AND MOST OF YOU AGREE THAT EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES ARE IMPORTANT TO THE SUCCESS OF A STUDENT'S CAREER. UNFORTUNATELY, ACCORDING TO ONE OF THE COACHES AT SUMMIT, THEY PREFER STUDENTS THAT HAVE BEEN PLAYING FOR SPORTS TEAM OUTSIDE OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT.

THIS IS NOT EQUITABLE ALREADY CREATING BARRIERS FOR STUDENTS THAT ARE ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED. AS MANY OF YOU KNOW, OUTSIDE SPORTS CAN BE QUITE PRICEY.

CLOSING THE GAP. I, TOO, PULLED THE 2020 TEA REPORT CARD BEFORE COMING TO THIS MEETING.

[01:05:05]

WE HAVE MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR LATINO AND AFRICAN-AMERICAN CHILDREN IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT THAT ARE FALLING BEHIND IN SUBJECTS ACROSS THE DISTRICT.

I HATE TO SEE THE MORE CURRENT NUMBERS THAT WILL BE COMING IN THE FUTURE THAT WILL SHOW THE IMPACT BY THE PANDEMIC.

THE STAAR TEST SCORE NUMBERS AT SUMMIT AND REVIEW ARE VERY UNACCEPTABLE.

THE MANSFIELD SUMMIT HIGH SCHOOL SCORES FOR READING ARE 87 68 AT SUMMIT.

THAT'S A 19 PERCENT DIFFERENCE.

THAT'S TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE FOR MATH 89 77 AT SUMMIT FOR SCIENCE 95 AND FOR AT SUMMIT 86.

SOCIAL STUDIES 98 90 AT SUMMIT.

I AM VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE READING SCORES.

AS WE ALL KNOW. READING IF YOU ARE BEHIND IN READING, THAT'S GOING TO IMPACT EVERYTHING ELSE IN REGARDS TO YOUR EDUCATION CAREER.

MY CHILD NEEDS 100 PERCENT OF HIS TEACHERS TO CARE ABOUT HIS EDUCATION AND SUCCESS IN LIFE, NOT JUST 60 PERCENT.

BASED ON A COMMENT FROM A TEACHER AT SUMMIT.

I NEED YOU TO HOLD OUR SCHOOL.

OUR PRINCIPAL AND OUR TEACHERS ACCOUNTABLE.

IF THEY DON'T WANT TO BE AT THE SUMMIT, THEN WE NEED YOU TO TAKE ACTION AND WE NEED YOU TO PULL THOSE TEACHERS OUT OF THAT SCHOOL.

THANK YOU. OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS NATALIE KATO, AM I SAYING THAT RIGHT? ALL RIGHTY. LOOKS LIKE SHE'S LEFT FOR THE EVENING, SO THAT MOVES US ON TO TEN POINT ONE,

[10. Human Resources Report]

DR. CANTU. YES, MA'AM, AT THIS TIME, WE WILL RECOGNIZE OUR PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN WITH US FOR 20 YEARS AND ARE LEAVING US MS. MARCUCCI. I'D BE HONORED TO READ THEIR NAMES.

I LOVE KIDS AND I JUST CAN'T WAIT FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR TO GET STARTED.

I'D ALSO LIKE TO THANK MY HUSBAND AND MY DAUGHTER WHO AREN'T HERE THIS EVENING, BUT THEY ARE THE BIGGEST SUPPORT TO ME TOO.

AND SO I JUST FEEL LIKE I'M JUST BLESSED.

THANK YOU. AND THAT DOES CONCLUDE OUR INTRODUCTIONS FOR THIS EVENING.

THANK YOU SO EXCITING THAT MOVES US ALONG TO ELEVEN POINT ONE BUSINESS ITEMS REQUIRING

[11. Business Items Requiring Board Action ]

BOARD ACTION, ELEVEN POINT ONE, CONSIDER APPROVAL OF THE APPOINTMENT OF A TRUSTEE TO FILL IN THE VACANCY IN PLACE SEVEN.

I THINK THAT WE'VE ALREADY TAKEN CARE OF THAT TODAY.

UNLESS SOMEBODY CAN TELL ME THAT WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING ELSE.

I THINK WE'RE GOOD, WE'RE GOING TO GO WITH NO ACTION.

ELEVEN POINT TWO CONSIDER APPROVAL OF ENDORSEMENT OF A CANDIDATE FOR THE TASB BOARD OF DIRECTORS. CAN I PLEASE RECEIVE A MOTION? GO AHEAD, GO AHEAD. GO FOR IT.

OK, I JUST WANTED TO MAKE THE MOTION THAT WE PUT OUR SUPPORT BEHIND THE CURRENT TASB BOARD OF DIRECTOR CORINNE FRENCH.

SHE'S FROM BELLEVIEW, ISD.

AND SO I JUST WANTED TO MAKE THAT MOTION.

CAN I GET A SECOND? I'LL SECOND.

SECOND BY MS. THOMAS. ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? NO, I WAS JUST GOING TO ADD, SHE'S BEEN A FANTASTIC ADVOCATE FOR THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM AND SHE DOES A FANTASTIC JOB WITH TASB.

SO THAT IS ONE REASON I'M SECONDING THE MOTION, BECAUSE I WOULD LIKE HER TO STAY RIGHT THERE BECAUSE SHE DOES SUCH A FANTASTIC JOB.

[01:25:03]

MS. MARCUCCI. I WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK TO THAT A LITTLE BIT, TOO.

SHE'S ALSO VERY INVOLVED WITH THE NORTH TEXAS AREA ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL BOARDS.

IF YOU HAVEN'T HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET HER, I'D BE HAPPY TO INTRODUCE YOU TO HER.

SHE DEEPLY CARES THAT OUR VOICE BE HEARD.

AND I WILL TELL YOU THAT THE TASB DIRECTORS HAVEN'T ALWAYS REACHED OUT TO US AS A DISTRICT TO FIND OUT WHAT OUR NEEDS ARE.

AND AT A LOT OF THE EVENTS THAT SHE'S AT, SHE ALWAYS MAKES A POINT TO TRY TO FIND THE DISTRICTS THAT ARE WITHIN HER AREA TO FIND OUT HOW THINGS ARE GOING AND HOW THEY MIGHT BE ABLE TO SERVE US BETTER.

AND SHE'S ALWAYS ANSWERED MY PHONE WHENEVER I'VE CALLED.

AND SO I THINK THAT COUNTS FOR A LOT, TOO.

AND SO AND ANOTHER THING, JUST EVEN THOUGH WE ARE A LARGER DISTRICT FOR TASB, SHE'S FROM A VERY SMALL SCHOOL DISTRICT AND I APPRECIATE THE PERSPECTIVE THAT SHE OFFERS.

AND ALONG THOSE LINES, WHEN THERE ARE THINGS THAT AFFECT LARGER SCHOOL DISTRICTS, SHE OFTEN REACHES OUT TO THE LARGER SCHOOL DISTRICTS BECAUSE SHE UNDERSTANDS THAT'S NOT HER EXPERTISE. AND SO I JUST HAVE A LOT OF POSITIVE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT HER AND HAVE FOUND HER TO BE VERY EASY TO TALK TO.

AND I HOPE THE REST OF YOU HAVE TO.

IF NOT LIKE I SAID, I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE YOU.

I ALSO HAD THE CHANCE TO MEET HER AT A RECENT TRAINING AND THE ENERGY THAT SHE BROUGHT TO THE ROOM AND THE WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE THAT SHE WAS ABLE TO CONVEY DURING THAT SHORT TRAINING PERIOD JUST LEFT AN IMPRESSION ON ME.

[INAUDIBLE] MADAM CHAIR, I THINK WERE OUT OF ORDER, I THINK THERE WAS A MOTION MADE, BUT I DON'T KNOW IF THERE WAS A CALL FOR A DISCUSSION.

THIS IS THE CALL FOR DISCUSSION.

THE MOTION WAS MADE BY MS. MARCUCCI AND THE SECOND WAS BY MS. THOMAS. AND WE'RE HAVING QUESTIONS RIGHT NOW BEFORE WE VOTE? DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, COMMENTS? I, TOO, HAVE MET MS. CORINNE AS WELL, AND I MET HER, IN FACT, AT MY VERY FIRST MONTH BEING ON THE BOARD SOME SIX, SEVEN YEARS AGO.

SO SHE WAS GREAT.

AND SHE'S ALWAYS BEEN A REAL POSITIVE, ENTHUSIASTIC AND SEEKING INPUT AND A GREAT PERSON TO KIND OF DISCUSS THINGS WITH.

SO WITH THAT, WE'LL MOVE THIS TO NO MORE QUESTIONS.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION.

PLEASE USE THE SOUND VOTE OF AYE, AYE.

ALL THOSE OPPOSED PLEASE SAY NO.

MOTION PASSES SIX ZERO.

[12. Consent Agenda]

THAT MOVES US ALONG TO TWELVE CONSENT AGENDA.

LET US REMIND YOU THAT THE CONSENT AGENDA, UP OR DOWN, UNLESS SOMEONE WANTS TO PULL AN ITEM, IS THERE ANYONE THAT WOULD LIKE TO PULL AN ITEM? I WOULD. I'D LIKE TO PULL ITEM TWELVE POINT FIVE, PLEASE.

MR. CANEDY WOULD LIKE TO PULL TWELVE POINT FIVE.

ALL RIGHTY. SHOULD WE VOTE ON THE REST FIRST? YES, YES. OK, SO ALL OF THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE CONSENT AGENDA WITH THE EXCLUSION OF ITEM TWELVE POINT FIVE PLEASE USE SOUND VOTE OF AYE.

AYE, ALL THOSE OPPOSED, PLEASE SAY NO.

CONSENT AGENDA PASSES SIX ZERO.

AND WITH THAT, WE'LL MOVE ON TO TWELVE POINT FIVE, CONSIDERATION AND APPROVAL OF A LIST

[12.5. Consideration and Approval of List of Investment Brokers and Dealers ]

OF INVESTMENT BROKERS AND DEALERS.

DR. CANTU. I MOVE THAT WE ACCEPT THE MOTION OF OK.

AND I WOULD JUST LIKE TO STATE FOR THE RECORD THAT I'M GOING TO ABSTAIN FROM THIS VOTE, PLEASE. MR. CANEDY WILL ABSTAIN.

WE'VE ALREADY HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND AND THEN MR. CANEDY WOULD LIKE TO ABSTAIN.

SO WITH THAT, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF TWELVE POINT FIVE PLEASE USE SOUND VOTE OF AYE.

AYE.

ALL THOSE OPPOSED SAY NO.

SO WE WILL HAVE A VOTE OF FOUR TO NONE WITH ONE ABSTAINING.

THAT MOVES US ALONG TO THE SUPERINTENDENCE REPORT.

THIS IS FOR DISCUSSION ONLY.

IS THERE ANY ITEM ON 13 THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS WITH THE SUPERINTENDENT? SEEING NONE OF THIS WILL MOVE US TO FOURTEEN POINT ONE ADJOURNMENT.

WE ADJOURN THIS MEETING AT 8:56 THIS EVENING WITH NO OTHER BUSINESS TO DISCUSS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
