[4. Reconvene]

[00:00:10]

GOOD EVENING. WE WILL NOW RECONVENE FROM CLOSED SESSION AT 7:36 P.M..

[5. Meeting Opening]

PLEASE RISE FOR THE PRAYERS AND THE PLEDGES.

RANDALL CANEDY WILL LEAD US IN THE PRAYER AND KEZIAH FERRAR LEAD US IN THE PLEDGES.

OUR PRESENTATION OF COLORS WILL BE LED BY THE LEGACY HIGH SCHOOL JROTC.

[6. District Recognition]

THIS LEADS US TO AGENDA ITEM SIX DISTRICT RECOGNITION, DR.

CANTU. YES, MR. WILLIAMS. OH, I'M SORRY.

I'M SORRY, MRS. HOPE BOYD, WOULD YOU PLEASE COME FORWARD? THANK YOU AND GOOD EVENING, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

THE SCHOOL YEAR HAS JUST BEGUN, BUT WE ALREADY HAVE TO SHARE THE EXCITING NEWS OF AN EMPLOYEE WHO HAS WON AT THE REGIONAL LEVEL.

TO EXPLAIN THAT SOME MORE, I'D LIKE THE COMMENTS OF JENNIFER YOUNG, SHE'S THE ASSOCIATE SUPERINTENDENT OF CURRICULUM INSTRUCTION AND ACCOUNTABILITY.

GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE, AT THIS TIME, I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE HADLEY BROWN UP TO THE PODIUM TO JOIN ME.

YOU MAY REMEMBER JUST A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO, WE HAD HADLEY UP HERE TO HONOR HER FOR BEING NAMED THE MISD ELEMENTARY TEACHER OF THE YEAR.

AS A REMINDER, HADLEY WORKS AT ROBERTA TIPPS STEAM ACADEMY, WHERE SHE WAS A FIRST GRADE TEACHER AND NOW A READING SPECIALIST, AND ON AUGUST THE 5TH, HADLEY REPRESENTED MISD AT THE REGION 11 TEACHER OF THE YEAR BANQUET.

AND NOT ONLY DID SHE REPRESENT US, BUT SHE WON AND WAS NAMED THE REGION 11 ELEMENTARY TEACHER OF THE YEAR.

[00:05:07]

[APPLAUSE] AND HADLEY, THE GREAT THING IS YOU GET TO CONTINUE ON THIS JOURNEY.

SHE NOW ADVANCES TO THE STATE COMPETITION WHERE SHE WILL REPRESENT MISD AT THE STATE LEVEL, AND HADLEY, WE WANTED TO RECOGNIZE YOU TONIGHT, AND THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO FOR OUR KIDS AND FOR OUR DISTRICT.

YOU WANT TO TAKE A PICTURE? [APPLAUSE] AND WE'VE ASKED HADLEY TO SAY A FEW REMARKS.

WE DON'T WANT HER TO GET OFF TOO EASY, SO WE ASKED HER TO HAVE A FEW THINGS TO SAY.

SO HADLEY. I FEEL SO HONORED TO REPRESENT MY SCHOOL, MY DISTRICT AND REGION 11 AS ELEMENTARY TEACHER OF THE YEAR.

THANK YOU TO THE MEMBERS OF THE BOARD FOR RECOGNIZING ME THIS EVENING.

I FEEL TRULY FORTUNATE THAT I GET TO REPRESENT MY HOMETOWN.

I WANT TO TAKE A MINUTE TO THANK ALL OF MY WONDERFUL MANSFIELD ISD TEACHERS THAT I HAD GROWING UP. YOU'VE TRULY INSPIRED ME IN SO MANY WAYS AND MADE ME THE PERSON I AM TODAY.

I HOPE THAT I HAVE AS MUCH OF AN IMPACT ON MY STUDENTS AS YOU HAVE HAD ON ME.

THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE] AND THAT CONCLUDES THE DISTRICT RECOGNITIONS CONGRATULATIONS ONCE AGAIN TO HADLEY.

WE'RE SO EXCITED. WHAT A GREAT HONOR.

[7. Instructional Focus]

THIS LEADS US TO ITEM NUMBER SEVEN, INSTRUCTIONAL FOCUS.

DR. CANTU. YES, I WOULD LIKE TO ASK DR.

SCOTT, DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT, TO COME FORWARD AT THIS TIME AND SHARE OUR FINAL DISTRICT SCORECARD AS WE WRAP UP VISION 2020.

AS DR. CANTU, SAID THIS IS THE LAST OF YOUR YEARLY PRESENTATIONS ON VISION 2020 FOR THE SCORECARD. NEXT YEAR, THIS TIME I WILL BE OR SOMEONE WILL BE, I GUESS, UP HERE GIVING YOU THE FIRST YEAR UNDER VISION 2030 AT THE END OF THE YEAR.

TO THE COMMUNITY, THE BOARD RECEIVES MULTIPLE UPDATES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR THROUGH OUR CASES OF ACCOUNTABILITY.

OUR CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT PLANS.

SO NONE OF THIS IS A SURPRISE TO YOU.

I FORGOT TO BRING ONE UP HERE MYSELF, BUT AT YOUR DESK, YOU'LL SEE THAT YOU HAVE A COPY OF THE SCORECARD, AND FOR ANYONE WATCHING AT HOME, IT IS ATTACHED AS AN EXHIBIT TO THIS AGENDA ITEM. SO THE FIRST THING AND THE REASON WE TRACK OUR DATA IS TO ASK OURSELVES, ARE YOU DOING A GOOD JOB? ARE WE DOING A GOOD JOB AS A DISTRICT? AND THEN THE NEXT QUESTION IS BECAUSE REFLEXIVELY EVERYONE WANTS TO SAY YES.

YOU SAY, WELL, HOW DO YOU KNOW? AND OF COURSE, WE GO AND WE LOOK AT OUR SCOREBOARD, WE LOOK AT OUR SCORECARD, AND WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF A COLOR SYSTEM THAT WE'RE GOING TO GO OVER AGAIN IN MORE DETAIL.

THIS YEAR, WE'RE GOING TO BE REAL TRANSPARENT WITH OUR DATA.

IT IS NOT AS GREEN AND BLUE AS WE WOULD TYPICALLY WANT IT TO BE.

WE BELIEVE WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF A SPECIAL CAUSE, AND SO WE'RE GOING TO PROVIDE YOU WITH SOME CONTEXT. BUT IN NO WAY WERE WE GOING TO MAKE ANY EXCUSES FOR THE DATA THAT YOU'LL SEE THE EVENING. SO WHAT DO THE COLORS MEAN? IN A TYPICAL YEAR, THE WORST THAT YOU CAN HAVE IS RED, IN THAT YEAR YOU DID NOT ME GOAL AND IMPROVEMENT IS REQUIRED IN THAT AREA.

YELLOW. YOU DID NOT ACHIEVE YOUR YEARLY GOAL, BUT YOU HAD A POSITIVE TREND, AND THERE'S AN IMPROVEMENT PLAN SUGGESTED.

GREEN, IN A NORMAL YEAR, YOU'RE ON TRACK.

HOPEFULLY YOU SET AN AMBITIOUS GOAL.

SO IF IN YEAR TWO EVERYTHING IS BLUE, YOU DIDN'T SET VERY GOOD GOALS.

OK, AND THEN FINALLY, THE BLUE IS YOU'VE MET OR EXCEEDED THAT FIVE YOUR GOAL.

SO WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO SEE TONIGHT, WHAT WE'RE GOING TO FOCUS ON TONIGHT WAS THE FIVE GUIDING STATEMENTS FROM VISION 2020, AND THEY ARE IN THE TOP PORTION OF YOUR SCORECARD, AND YOU SEE, I'VE BLOWN UP THAT TOP THAT TOP PORTION THERE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE, AND WE'LL GO OVER EACH ONE OF THESE INDIVIDUALLY.

AGAIN, WE'LL SHOW YOU THE STAGNANT DATA AND THEN A LITTLE BIT OF TREND LINE DATA.

SO GUIDING STATEMENT NUMBER ONE, STUDENTS WILL READ ON-LEVEL OR HIGHER BY THE BEGINNING OF THIRD GRADE AND REMAIN ON-LEVEL OR HIGHER AS AN MISD STUDENT.

[00:10:04]

OUR TARGET THERE WAS 92 PERCENT, AND AS WE'VE EXPLAINED MANY, MANY TIMES, WE BELIEVE THAT ALL STUDENTS CAN GET TO WHERE THEY CAN READ ON-LEVEL OR HIGHER.

DEVELOPMENTALLY, IT TAKES SOME STUDENTS A LITTLE BIT LONGER THAN THAT, AND SO WE SET OUR NUMBER AT 92 PERCENT BY LOOKING AT THE PERCENTAGE AND DISTANCE TO GO FOR SOME OF OUR DYSLEXIC AND OUR SPECIAL ED STUDENTS.

AGAIN, NOT THAT THEY CAN'T GET THERE, BUT DEVELOPMENTALLY, WHAT PERCENTAGE OF OUR KIDS WAS IT APPROPRIATE FOR? SO IN 18-19, WE WERE AT 88 PERCENT, AND THEN LAST YEAR, WE DID NOT HAVE THE END OF THE YEAR DATA. IN THIS LAST YEAR, WE WERE AT 85 PERCENT.

SO JUST A LITTLE BIT OF CONTEXT.

IN 2015-16, WE WERE AT 82 PERCENT.

THAT WAS OUR BASELINE YEAR, AND THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WE THEN SAID OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS, WE WANTED TO BE AT 92 PERCENT.

16-17, WE MADE A JUMP AFTER SOME CHANGES IN OUR CURRICULUM TO GO UP TO AN 87.

KIND OF REMAINED STEADY AT 86 AND THEN UP TO 88, AND THIS LAST YEAR, AGAIN, WE WERE AT 85. SO STILL ABOVE OUR BASELINE YEAR.

SO YOU SEE TWO TREND LINES THERE.

THE RED IS THE STATISTICAL TREND LINE ENCOMPASSING ALL FIVE YEARS OF DATA.

SO EITHER WAY, EVEN WITH THIS YEAR'S DROP, WE'RE STILL IN A POSITIVE TREND LINE.

THE BLUE IS IF YOU TAKE THIS YEAR'S DATA OUT.

OK, AND SO WHAT YOU SEE THERE IS WE'RE RIGHT.

WE WOULD BE RIGHT THERE AT THAT 91 OR SO PERCENT, ASSUMING WE MADE THE SAME PROGRESS, AND YOU CAN NEVER ASSUME THAT.

BUT WE WERE VERY MUCH ON THE RIGHT TRACK.

GUIDING STATEMENT NUMBER TWO, AND THIS IS THE ONE THAT'S GOING TO APPEAR THE UGLIEST WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS RAW.

THIS IS THE ONE THAT YOU SEE THAT IS RED.

IT IS BELOW GOAL. WE ARE NOT PLEASED WITH WHERE IT ENDED UP.

STUDENTS WILL DEMONSTRATE MASTERY OF ALGEBRA ONE BY THE END OF NINTH GRADE, AND THIS IS WHERE OUR STUDENTS ARE PERFORMING AT MEETS LEVEL ON THE STATE EOC, AND OF COURSE, EXAM AND MEETS MEANS THAT THEY ARE READY FOR THE NEXT GRADE LEVEL AND THEY ARE PROJECTED OUT IF THEY STAY ON PACE TO BE COLLEGE CAREER READY.

SO, WE'VE NEVER MEASURED AT THE PASSING STANDARD.

WE'VE ALWAYS MEASURED AT THE MEET STANDARD.

IN THE OLD DAYS, IT WAS THE COMMITTED STANDARD.

WE NEVER MEASURED AT JUST THE PASSING.

SO YOU SEE OUR TARGET WAS AT 85.

THE LAST TIME WE HAD DATA PREVIOUS TO THIS YEAR WAS IN 18-19.

WE HAD GONE TO 75, AND THEN THIS YEAR, WE DROPPED TO 57 PERCENT.

A LITTLE BIT CLOSER LOOK AT THAT DATA.

OUR BASELINE HERE WAS 15-16.

WE'RE AT 51 PERCENT.

SO THIS YEAR, WHICH WE CONSIDER A RED YEAR, WE WERE SIX PERCENTAGE POINTS ABOVE OUR BASELINE YEAR.

IN 16-17.

WE'RE AT 16, 17, 18: 66 IN 18-19: 75.

NOW, YOU ASK WHAT WONDERFUL THINGS THAT YOU DO IN 18-19? THAT WAS A CULMINATION OF THINGS THAT WE'D BEEN WORKING ON.

SO IF YOU REMEMBER THE WHOLE CONCRETE TO ABSTRACT MOVEMENT THAT WE HAD IN OUR GRADES FOUR THROUGH SEVEN. THE REORDERING OF OUR CURRICULUM IN OUR EIGHTH GRADE, AND THE RE-PACING, THOSE KIDS FOLLOWING MATURED AND MADE THEIR WAY THROUGH THE SYSTEM SO THAT WHEN THEY TOOK THAT EXAM IN NINTH GRADE, THE 60 PERCENT OF OUR KIDS WHO TAKE ALGEBRA IN THE NINTH GRADE THAT THEY WERE HAD THE RIGHT PIECES IN PLACE TO PERFORM SUCCESSFULLY.

SO A GREAT JOB BY OUR ELISE BUCHHORN OUR MATH COORDINATOR AND OUR COACHES AND DONNA O'BRIAN AND HER TEAM, AND THEN THIS YEAR, YOU SEE THE DROP.

AGAIN, YOU HAVE THE RED LINE THERE THAT IS THE TREND LINE, AND THAT'S THE STEEPEST TREND LINE EVEN WITH THE BIG DROP THIS YEAR, AND THEN YOU SEE THE TREND LINE.

IF WE TOOK OUT THIS YEAR'S DATA AND AGAIN, YOU'RE RIGHT UP AROUND THAT 84 PERCENT, 84, 85 PERCENT. LOOKING AT GUIDING STATEMENT NUMBER THREE, STUDENTS WILL GRADUATE COLLEGE CAREER AND OR MILITARY READY.

OH, I FORGOT TO MENTION ELISE BUCCHORN WILL GIVE YOU A BIT MORE CONTEXT LATER ON.

SHE'S GOING TO BE DOING A LONE STAR GOVERNANCE PRESENTATION ON THAT MEASURE LATER ON TONIGHT. BRANDON JOHNSON WILL BE DOING A LONE STAR GOVERNANCE PRESENTATION ON COLLEGE CAREER MILITARY READINESS.

THIS IS ONE THAT WE KIND OF CHANGED IN THE MIDDLE OF VISION 2020, AS WE HAD REMEMBER, IF YOU REMEMBER PREVIOUSLY, WE HAD TWENTY FOUR PLUS COLLEGE HOURS OR AN INDUSTRY CERTIFICATION, WE CHANGED TO THE STATE MEASURE WHEN THEY BROUGHT IN THE A-F SYSTEM, AND SO OUR RUNWAY'S A LITTLE BIT SHORTER HERE.

BUT WE WE SET OUR TARGET AT 70.

THE LAST TIME WE HAD DATA WAS JUST LAST YEAR WAS 69, AND THIS YEAR WAS A 64.

[00:15:07]

NOW, WHEN I SAY LAST YEAR, THIS IS REALLY 20-21 DATA IS REALLY FOR THE GRADUATING CLASS OF 2020 BECAUSE THAT DATA LAGS AN ENTIRE YEAR.

WE SPEND AN ENTIRE YEAR CLEANING DATA BETWEEN US IN THE STATE AS IT HAS TO GO THROUGH ALL THE DIFFERENT SYSTEMS, WHETHER IT BE COLLEGE BOARD, DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE BACK AND FORTH AS THEY DETERMINE EXACTLY WHAT OUR COHORT WE KNOW THE DATE WE KNOW ENOUGH TO BE USEFUL FOR TO DO WHAT WE NEED TO DO.

BUT AS FAR AS WHAT THE ACTUAL OFFICIAL NUMBERS, SO WE'RE KIND OF AT GOAL THERE.

AND 60 IS WHAT GETS YOU AT AN A.

THAT'S EQUIVALENT TO THE 90 ON THAT PORTION OF THE A-F.

OUR GOALS ARE MUCH HIGHER.

SO YOU SEE THERE, AGAIN, THE TWO TREND LINES.

THE RED IS INCORPORATING THIS YEAR'S DATA AND THE BLUE TAKES IT OUT.

AGAIN, MR. JOHNSON WILL BE BRINGING YOU MORE INFORMATION ON THAT, AND IT'S GOOD NEWS.

GUIDING STATEMENT NUMBER FOUR, STUDENTS WILL PARTICIPATE IN AN IN AN EXTRA OR COCURRICULAR ACTIVITY.

WE SET A VERY LOFTY TARGET, IF YOU REMEMBER, OF ONE HUNDRED PERCENT; ALWAYS MAKES YOU CRY A LITTLE BIT, REALIZING THAT BLUE IS GOING TO BE HARD FOR THOSE OF US WHO LIKE TO SEE THE BLUE. THE LAST YEAR WE HAD DATA.

WE WERE AT 85 PERCENT AND THIS YEAR SEVENTY SEVEN PERCENT.

WE ARE YELLOW.

BUT AGAIN, YOU SEE THE TREND LINES FROM 65 TO 85 OVER THE COURSE OF A COUPLE OF YEARS THERE, AND THEN THE DROP TO THIS YEAR.

FINALLY GUIDING STATEMNET NUMBER FIVE.

THESE NUMBERS ARE A LITTLE BIT MORE SOLID.

WE'RE NOT LOOKING AT PERCENTAGES [INAUDIBLE], AND THIS IS OUR PARENTS AND STUDENTS WILL HAVE CHOICES WITH EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES.

OUR TARGET WAS 15.

LAST YEAR, WE HAD DATA WAS 19-20.

THIS IS WHEN WE COULD GET DATA FROM LAST YEAR, AND WE FINISHED AT 15 WITH THE ADDITION OF THE ROBERTA TIPPS STEAM ACADEMY LAST YEAR.

REMINDER, THIS YEAR WE'VE ADDED SCHOOLS OF CHOICE AT OUR THREE NEW SCHOOLS THAT WE'RE OPENING AS WELL, AND THE REASON THAT THE FRONTIER STEM DIDN'T OPEN IS BECAUSE THAT KIND OF CROSSED OUT WITH THE OLD FRONTIER.

SO WE ADD ADD ONE, SUBTRACT ONE THERE.

SO AGAIN, THERE'S THE TREND LINES FOR ALL FOUR OF THOSE FIRST FOUR MEASURES, THE STEEPEST TREND LINES ARE QUITE OBVIOUSLY IN THE AREAS WHERE WE HAD THE MOST ROOM TO IMPROVE, AS YOU WOULD SUSPECT.

KIND OF THE FLATTISH TREND LINES WERE WITH GUIDING STATEMENT NUMBER ONE, WHERE WE ARE ALREADY DOING A REALLY, REALLY GOOD JOB AT TEACHING OUR STUDENTS TO READ, AND IN EACH ONE OF THESE CASES, WE WERE ABOVE OUR BASELINE YEAR, EVEN IN THE SITUATION THAT WE FACED LAST YEAR WITH COVID 19.

SO EVEN THOUGH WE SPENT THE ENTIRE YEAR TELLING YOU WE'RE NOT DOING AS GOOD A JOB EDUCATING YOUR CHILDREN THIS YEAR, WE'RE DOING THE VERY BEST WE CAN.

BUT INSTRUCTIONALLY, IT IS NOT AS GOOD.

WE STILL OUTPERFORMED WHAT WE DID IN 15-16.

SO THE REST OF OUR SCORECARD IS DIVIDED UP INTO OUR OUR MAJOR SYSTEMS, AND WE'RE JUST GOING TO QUICKLY GO THROUGH THOSE, BUT YOU CAN SEE THEM LISTED OUT THERE.

THOSE ARE KIND OF OUR MAJOR DIVISIONS LISTED OUT THERE ON THE RIGHT.

EACH ONE OF THESE DIVISIONS HAS THEIR OWN SETS OF SCORECARDS, AND EACH ONE OF THE DEPARTMENTS WITHIN THE SCORECARDS, WITHIN THE DIVISIONS HAVE THEIR OWN SCORECARD.

SOMETIMES THEY GO DOWN TO THE INDIVIDUAL PERSON AND THEY HAVE MONTHLY, QUARTERLY, DEPENDING UPON THE MEASURE THAT THEY'RE GOING TOWARDS REPORTING CYCLES.

AGAIN, WE CALL OUR CADENCE OF ACCOUNTABILITY.

SO THERE YOU SEE A CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION, STUDENT SERVICES, TECHNOLOGY AND HUMAN RESOURCES.

IN THE AREAS WHERE YOU SEE RED AND YELLOW, THOSE ARE THINGS THAT WHERE THE OUTSIDE WORLD TOUCHES US A LITTLE BIT MORE.

ATTENDANCE RATE IS A YELLOW THERE EXCUSE ME, IT'S A RED.

95.88 IS STILL REALLY HIGH.

96 IS KIND OF THE STANDARD THERE.

I BELIEVE THAT'S WHAT WE BUDGETED AT.

IS THAT CORRECT? WE'RE TYPICALLY UP CLOSER, AS YOU CAN SEE, CLOSER TO THE MID NINETY SIX, NINETY SIX FIVE, NINETY SIX FOUR EIGHT, NINETY SIX THREE SEVEN.

SO WE DID DROP THERE.

BUT YOU KNOW, THERE IS A LOT HAPPENING IN THE WORLD THAT AFFECTED STUDENT ATTENDANCE.

YOU SEE THE GREEN AREAS WHERE WE HAD SCHEDULED TIME FOR CRITICAL SYSTEMS AND TECHNOLOGY.

THEY HAVE DONE AND CONTINUE TO DO A GREAT JOB LAST YEAR IN MAKING SURE THAT OUR

[00:20:05]

INFRASTRUCTURE REMAINS SOLID.

SO THAT WAS THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT COVID DIDN'T AFFECT SO MUCH.

INTERNALLY, THE STAFF SURVEY PERCENT SATISFIED, OUR PDC OR PRINCIPALS, DIRECTORS, COORDINATORS, WAS AT 94 PERCENT? AND OVERALL, TEACHERS WAS ALL OTHER STAFF, WAS AT 80 PERCENT? SO A BLUE AND A GREEN THERE.

CONVERSELY, WHEN YOU LOOK AND YOU GO OUTSIDE TO DO STUDENT SURVEY, OUR STUDENTS WERE NOT SERVED IN THE SAME MANNER THAT THEY USED TO BE SERVED AT IN ALL TIMES LAST YEAR.

SO THAT DROPPED A LITTLE BIT JUST BELOW THE BASELINE AT 16.

SO THAT'S A YELLOW.

SO YOU ASK, WHY IS IT A YELLOW IF IT'S A BELOW THE BASELINE? WELL, WE ALSO LOOK AT INDUSTRY STANDARDS THERE AS WELL.

MOVING ON TO SIX THROUGH NINE THERE, SO YOU HAVE COMMUNICATIONS AND MARKETING FACILITIES AND OPERATIONS.

BUSINESS SERVICES AND THEN SAFETY AND SECURITY.

SO, ONE OF THE ONES I WANT TO POINT OUT HERE, THIS BLUE ON SAFETY SECURITY IS YOU SEE RESPONSE TIME. YOU SEE THAT'S DROPPED OVER THE YEARS.

WELL, THAT WON'T BE ON THE NEW SCORECARD BECAUSE WE NOW HAVE AN OFFICER OR TWO OFFICERS AT EVERY SINGLE CAMPUS.

SO THERE IS NO TRANSIT TIME FOR RESPONSE.

THE OFFICER'S THERE AND READY TO GO AT ALL TIMES.

THE BUSINESS SERVICES MEASURES, A LOT OF THOSE MEASURES DON'T COME UNTIL THEIR YEAR IS OFFICIALLY CLOSED. YOU KNOW, BUSINESS SERVICE IS ALWAYS WORKING IN MULTIPLE YEARS.

SOME PARTS OF THE YEAR, THEY'RE WORKING IN THREE DIFFERENT YEARS, BUT THEY'LL CLOSE OUT THEIR LAST PIECES, AND AS WE ALWAYS DO EVERY YEAR, WE'LL UPDATE THEIR SCORECARD.

AGAIN, WE HAVE ONE IN RED HERE ON PARENT SURVEY.

AGAIN, WE WEREN'T ABLE TO DELIGHT OUR PARENTS IN THE SAME WAY THAT WE WOULD IN A TYPICAL YEAR LAST YEAR, AND THEY CAME IN JUST UNDER BASELINE OF WHAT THEY WERE IN 15-16.

YOU SAW A VERY POSITIVE TREND GOING FROM EIGHTY ONE, EIGHTY SIX, EIGHTY EIGHT, AND THEN WE DROPPED OFF TO SEVENTY NINE PERCENT THERE.

SO OVERALL, YOU SEE OUR ORIGINAL SCORECARD BACK UP THERE THE FIRST TIME WE PRESENTED IT IN OCTOBER OF TWENTY SEVENTEEN, A COMPLETED SCORECARD, AND THEN YOU SEE THE ONE SIDE BY SIDE FOR THE ONE THAT I'M PRESENTING TONIGHT.

SO IN ANSWER TO THE QUESTION, ARE WE DOING A GOOD JOB? YES, WE THINK WE DID DO A GOOD JOB, BUT THERE IS A GREAT DEAL OF WORK TO DO, AND WE DON'T SHY AWAY FROM THAT AT ALL.

NOT ONLY DO WE HAVE THE RECOVERY FROM FROM COVID, BUT WE ALSO HAVE THE ADJUSTMENT FROM VISION TWENTY TO VISION 2030, WHICH WE FEEL GOOD ABOUT BECAUSE WE'RE ALIGNED TO ACCOMPLISH THE GOALS WITHIN VISION 2030.

ANY QUESTIONS? BOARD MEMBERS TO MY RIGHT? LEFT? MS. MARCUCCI.

THANK YOU FOR GOING THROUGH THIS, AND IT'S GOOD FOR US TO REMEMBER WHERE WE CAME FROM, AND SO THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS I DO ENJOY SEEING IS THE TRENDS.

I KNOW THAT WE STILL HAVE A LOT OF PROGRESS TO MAKE, BUT IT WAS INTERESTING BECAUSE WHEN I WAS LOOKING BACK ON THE TECHNOLOGY SECTION IN PARTICULAR, WHEN WE WERE TALKING ABOUT, YOU KNOW, TEACHERS USING 4 C'S AND ALL OF THIS KIND OF STUFF, THAT'S BACK, DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN WE WERE STRUGGLING GETTING PEOPLE TO USE IPADS? [CHUCKLING] I WAS OVER TECHNOLOGY AT THAT TIME, JUST TRYING TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO PUSH THAT 4 C'S MEASURE UP, AND IT'S JUST CRAZY TO THINK HOW MUCH HAS CHANGED IN OUR WORLD, YOU KNOW, IN THE TIME THAT HAS ELAPSED HERE WITH THE SCORECARD, AND WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THIS IS THAT IT'S REALLY JUST KEEPING OUR FOCUS ON OUR KIDS AND WHAT OUR KIDS NEED FROM US, AND SO I REALLY APPRECIATE THIS APPROACH AND IT FEELS REALLY GOOD TO MAKE IT THROUGH ONE COMPLETE CYCLE AND SEE HOW THIS HAS REALLY RIGHTED OUR PATH AND KEPT US FOCUSED ON THE MAIN THING, WHICH IS EDUCATING KIDS AND PREPARING THEM FOR THE NEW WORLD.

SO I JUST REALLY APPRECIATE THE WORK THAT HAS GONE INTO THIS, AND TO YOUR POINT, THE ALIGNMENT THAT HAS GONE INTO THIS.

I MEAN, YOU JUST BRIEFLY TALKED ABOUT IT, BUT I RECOGNIZE THAT THIS IMPACTS EVERY EMPLOYEE. I MEAN, JUST ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE VERY BASE, YOU KNOW, THOSE THAT INTERACT DIRECTLY WITH OUR STUDENTS JUST TO GET US ALL ALIGNED, TO MAKE SURE WE'RE KEEPING THE MAIN THING, THE MAIN THING.

SO I APPRECIATE THAT, AND OUR STAFF, EVERY ONE OF OUR STAFF MEMBERS, OUR FAMILIES, OUR STUDENTS SHOULD BE I MEAN, WE PRESENTED THE GREEN IS GOOD DATA A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO.

WE'RE GETTING SOME YOU KNOW, THEY DIDN'T DO A THROUGH F THIS YEAR, BUT WE KNOW WHAT THE FORMULAS ARE, AND SO WE'RE KIND OF DOING OUR OWN PROJECTIONS, AND EVEN IN THIS YEAR, WE

[00:25:06]

WOULD HAVE DROPPED FROM LIKE A NINETY ONE TO AN EIGHTY EIGHT.

SO WE MADE SOME DECISIONS THIS LAST YEAR THAT WERE HARD ON THE ADULTS, AND WE KNEW THAT WHEN WE MADE THEM FOR THE BENEFIT OF KIDS, AND WE WEREN'T ALWAYS ABLE TO COMMUNICATE THAT CLEARLY TO 35000 FAMILIES, AND SO THERE WAS SOME HURT THERE.

BUT THE WAY THAT IT'S ULTIMATELY ENDED UP IN STUDENT PERFORMANCE AGAIN, PARENTS, STUDENTS, TEACHERS, CURRICULUM, INSTRUCTION, STAFF, TRANSPORTATION, EVERYONE IN THE SYSTEM SHOULD BE VERY PROUD OF THOSE THOSE RESULTS.

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED TO SAY IS JUST I TRULY APPRECIATE THAT, AND IT'S EASY TO GET LOST IN THE WEEDS IN LOST IN THE DETAILS.

BUT STAYING FOCUSED IS SO IMPORTANT, AND I THINK THAT THE STAFF HAS DONE A GREAT JOB OF THAT IN VERY DIFFICULT TIMES, AND I'M JUST VERY PROUD OF ALL OF OUR EMPLOYEES, THE IMPACT THAT THEY'VE HAD ON OUR STUDENTS.

SO, THANK YOU. DR.

SCOTT, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE PRESENTATION.

JUST TO REITERATE MS. MARCUCCI'S COMMENTS.

I THINK IT'S A BEAUTIFUL PICTURE.

THIS RIGHT HERE OF ALL OUR STUDENTS AND HOW EVERYONE CAME TOGETHER, INCLUDING STUDENTS AND PARENTS AND EVERYONE IN THE COMMUNITY, TO REALLY HELP PULL TOGETHER DURING THESE CHALLENGING TIMES. SO THANK YOU FOR HELPING US TO UNDERSTAND OUR PRETTY PICTURE.

YES, MA'AM. DR.

CANTU. THANK YOU.

READY TO MOVE ON TO SEVEN POINT TWO? I'D LIKE TO BRING ELISE BUCHHORN FORWARD TO GIVE A PRESENTATION ON LOAN STAR GOVERNANCE.

SO G2 AND GPM'S, TWO POINT ONE, TWO AND THREE.

GOOD EVENING. PRESIDENT NEWSOM, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD.

DR. CANTU, I AM HERE TO GIVE YOU YOUR UPDATE ON LONE STAR GOVERNANCE AS IT RELATES TO MATHEMATICS, WHICH IS ALSO ALIGNED TO VISION 2020'S GUIDING STATEMENT NUMBER TWO.

SO JUST TO REMIND YOU, OUR STUDENT OUTCOME GOAL IS THAT THE PERCENT OF STUDENTS IN EIGHTH AND NINTH GRADE WILL SCORE MEETS EXPECTATION ON THE ALGEBRA ONE END, OF COURSE, EXAM WILL INCREASE FROM 66 PERCENT TO 85 PERCENT BY JUNE OF 2021.

TO HELP US IN THIS ENDEAVOR, WE SET GOAL PROGRESS MEASURES TO BE FOCUSED ON THE CONCEPT OF SOLVING EQUATIONS IN GRADES SEVEN EIGHT AND THEN THE ALGEBRA ONE COURSE, AND WE HAD THE GOALS SET AT 72 PERCENT, 70 AND 78, RESPECTIVELY, FOR THOSE GRADE LEVELS BY THE END OF 2021.

SOMETHING TO NOTE IS THAT THOSE GOALS WERE SET.

WE DID NOT TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE COVID EPIDEMIC WHEN WE SET THOSE GOALS.

SO JUST KEEP THAT IN MIND.

SO LOOKING AT OUR DATA, AS DR.

SCOTT ALREADY SHARED, OUR END OF YEAR DATA FOR ALGEBRA ONE EOC FOR MEETS WAS AT 57 PERCENT. SO WE DID NOT MEET OUR GOAL.

WE CAN SEE THAT DIP, AND SO WE CAN SAY THAT THE PANDEMIC DID IMPACT OUR STUDENT PERFORMANCE AND MASTERY AT THAT GRADE LEVEL.

BUT WHEN WE STARTED TO DIVE A LITTLE DEEPER, WHY WHAT ABOUT THAT IS WHAT IMPACTED OUR STUDENTS WAS THE QUESTION THAT WE ASKED OURSELVES AND WE STARTED CONSIDERING WE HAD STUDENTS IN VIRTUAL LEARNING MODES FACE-TO-FACE, STUDENTS THAT WERE FACE-TO-FACE, STUDENTS THAT WERE AT HOME TRYING TO WATCH THROUGH TEAMS OR VARIOUS LEARNING MODALITIES TAKING PLACE, WHICH PROHIBITED IN SOME OF, IN MANY CASES, OUR NORMAL BEST PRACTICE FOR MATH INSTRUCTION. THOSE OPPORTUNITIES TO REALLY PROVIDE OUR STUDENTS WHAT WE KNOW, HELP STUDENTS LEARN MATHEMATICS.

WE JUST WERE HINDERED BY SAFETY PROTOCOLS.

THE OPPORTUNITIES FOR THAT CONCRETE TO REPRESENTATION, TO ABSTRACT TYPE OF MODEL WAS PREVENTED BY INITIALLY.

WE WEREN'T PUTTING MANIPULATIVENESS IN STUDENTS' HANDS FOR SAFETY REASONS.

EVEN THE HANDHELD CALCULATOR FOR THE FIRST PART OF THE YEAR WASN'T SOMETHING THAT WE WERE PUTTING IN HANDS DUE TO HAVING TO SANITIZE AND KEEPING THE SAFETY OF THE CALCULATOR AT THE SAME TIME. THERE'S A LOT OF THINGS THAT HINDERED NORMAL INSTRUCTION, AND WE'VE LEARNED A LOT FROM THAT ABOUT WHAT THE POWER IS OF STRONG INSTRUCTIONAL PRACTICES AND HOW THAT CAN POSITIVELY IMPACT OUR STUDENTS.

AND THE PANDEMIC HAS SHOWED US WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DON'T HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY TO DO THAT. SO WHEN WE LOOK AT THAT, WE WANT TO REMIND YOU, TOO, THAT JENNIFER YOUNG SHARED WITH YOU THAT COMPARISON DATA FROM OUR NEIGHBORING DISTRICTS AND OUR REGION AND THE STATE THAT SHOWED HOW THOSE OTHER DISTRICTS PERFORMED WITH US IN COMPARISON, AND THERE WAS ONLY ONE OTHER SCHOOL DISTRICT ON THAT LIST THAT OUTPERFORMED MANSFIELD ISD, AND THAT PERCENT WAS BY ONE.

SO THAT ONE NEIGHBORING DISTRICT WAS AT 58 PERCENT.

SO WHEN WE LOOK AT THAT RED BAR, WE DO HAVE A LOT OF CELEBRATIONS THAT WE SHOULD CONSIDER

[00:30:04]

IS THAT WE STILL DID POSITIVELY IMPACT OUR LEARNERS TO THE BEST OF OUR CAPABILITY.

WHEN WE LOOK AT THOSE, THERE ARE GROWTH PROGRESS MEASURES, THOSE SOLVING EQUATIONS, OUR DATA FOR SEVENTH AND EIGHTH GRADE ARE BOTH IN THE RED.

WE WERE AT 39 PERCENT FOR THE PERFORMANCE OF 7TH GRADE, 43 PERCENT, WHICH WERE SIGNIFICANT DROPS WHEN WE LOOKED AT THAT COMPARED TO OUR 2019 DATA.

WHAT WAS ENCOURAGING IS THAT OUR ALGEBRA ONE DATA WAS AT 67 PERCENT, WHICH WAS NEAR THE GOAL, AND SO AS A DISTRICT, SINCE THE STUDENT OUTCOME GOAL IS FOCUSED ON ALGEBRA ONE, THAT IS WHY WE LOOKED AT OURSELVES AS IN YELLOW FOR THE DISTRICT OVERALL, AND BUT WHEN WE EVALUATE THAT, WE'RE GOING BACK TO THAT SAME IDEA OF FLUENCY WITH THOSE RATIONAL NUMBER OPERATIONS WHICH ARE INTRODUCED TO STUDENTS IN SIXTH GRADE.

SO OUR SEVENTH GRADERS AND OUR EIGHTH GRADERS IN THAT SIXTH AND SEVENTH GRADE YEAR, THAT'S WHEN SO MUCH HAPPENED AND THAT'S WHEN THE SHUTDOWN HAPPENED, AND SO WE SEE HOW THAT'S IMPACTING OUR STUDENTS, AND SO THAT IDEA OF NEGATIVE KIND OF SHOWED UP IN OUR QUARTER THREE LONE STAR GOVERNANCE REPORT THAT WE SAW.

NEGATIVE SOLUTIONS AND EQUATIONS IS SOMETHING OUR STUDENTS WERE STRUGGLING WITH, AND MAYBE THAT'S A GOOD NOBODY WANTS TO HAVE THAT NEGATIVE BALANCE.

RIGHT. SO WE DO NOW, THAT'S AN OPPORTUNITY FOR GROWTH IN OUR DEPARTMENT TO HELP OUR TEACHERS BE ABLE TO HELP ENCOURAGE OUR STUDENTS IN THAT SKILL.

BUT IT ALSO SHOWS THE POWER OF VERTICAL ALIGNMENT AND THAT WHEN WE LOOK AT OUR ALGEBRA ONE STUDENTS WHO HAD MORE TIME IN SIXTH AND SEVENTH GRADE NORMAL SCHOOL YEAR, AND THEY'RE SHUT DOWN AND THE PANDEMIC HAPPENED DURING EIGHTH GRADE AND THEN THEIR ALGEBRA ONE TIME, AND THE DIP WAS NOT AS SIGNIFICANT IN THAT SKILL SET.

SO WE DO SEE WHEN VERTICAL ALIGNMENT IS STRONG AND IN PLACE, WE SEE POSITIVE IMPACT ON OUR STUDENTS. SO WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT WHAT'S OUR NEXT STEPS ARE, WHEN WE GOT OUR DATA IN MAY, WE DID INVITE OUR ALGEBRA ONE STUDENTS THAT WERE NOT SUCCESSFUL ON THE EOC AND NOT SUCCESSFUL IN THE COURSE TO TAKE A TEACHER TIGHT SUMMER SCHOOL COURSE.

SO WE DID INVITE THOSE STUDENTS TO PARTICIPATE IN THAT, AND THEN CAMPUSES AND FOCUSED ON JUST-IN-TIME INTERVENTIONS AND DID OFFER SUMMER SCHOOL FOR THE MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS AS WELL TO HELP SUPPORT JUST THEIR LEARNING, AND FOR THE FIRST TIME, WITHOUT HAVING THAT SSI WEIGHT ON THE SUMMER SCHOOL TEACHER SHOULDERS, WE REALLY HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO FOCUS ON BUILDING STUDENTS POSITIVE MATH IDENTITY DURING THAT TIME TO SAY, HEY, YOU'RE HERE.

THERE'S NOT A TEST IN THREE WEEKS.

LET'S JUST WORK ON WHAT YOU NEED TO WORK ON.

LET'S BUILD THAT, HEY, YOU CAN DO MATH.

WE CAN HELP YOU THROUGH IT.

WE KNOW THAT THERE WERE SOME CHALLENGES, SO WE HAD SOME REALLY GREAT OPPORTUNITIES THIS SUMMER THAT WERE UNIQUE TO THE SITUATION.

AS WE MOVE FORWARD IN OUR UPCOMING SCHOOL YEAR, WE'RE GOING TO REALLY FOCUS ON THREE MAIN THINGS. THE PROFESSIONAL LEARNING COMMUNITIES THAT ARE HAPPENING ON CAMPUS ARE ALLOWING THE MATH DEPARTMENT TO COME IN AND HELP IMPROVE TEACHERS' UNDERSTANDING OF HOW CAN WE MOVE STUDENTS, HOW DO WE ANALYZE WHAT'S HAPPENING DAILY IN THE CLASSROOM, WHAT ARE THOSE FORMATIVE ASSESSMENTS LOOK LIKE AND HOW CAN WE THEN TAKE WHAT'S HAPPENING, MAKE A PLAN OF ACTION RIGHT NOW, NOT HAVING TO WAIT LATER AFTER A TEST OR EVEN LATER AT THE END OF THE YEAR AFTER STAAR, SO WE CAN PROVIDE JUST-IN-TIME INTERVENTIONS TO HELP SUPPORT STUDENT GROWTH ONGOING.

WE WANT TO MAXIMIZE OUR TIER ONE INSTRUCTION TIME.

SO THE HIGH SCHOOL CAMPUSES, WE SPENT A LOT OF TIME TALKING ABOUT COULD WE RE-SEQUENCE SOME OF THE HIGH SCHOOL COURSE SEQUENCES FROM THE TRADITIONAL PATHWAY, AND WE HAVE A COURSE THAT'S RELATIVELY NEW CALLED ALGEBRAIC REASONING.

IT'S SOMEWHAT YOU COULD CONSIDER AN ALGEBRA ONE AND A HALF COURSE, AND THAT'S TRADITIONALLY A COURSE THAT WE PROVIDE STUDENTS THAT MAYBE AREN'T READY TO GO INTO ALGEBRA TWO AFTER THEY'VE COMPLETED GEOMETRY, THAT CAN BE A BRIDGE.

WELL, WE RE-SEQUENCED IT AND SUGGESTED FOR MANY OF OUR STUDENTS THAT ALGEBRA ONE, THEY WEREN'T QUITE WHERE WE NEEDED THEM TO BE.

LET'S HAVE THEM TAKE THAT COURSE COMING RIGHT OFF OF ALGEBRA ONE SO WE CAN SIMULTANEOUSLY HELP STUDENTS GAIN THE CREDIT THEY NEED TO CONTINUE IN THEIR HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION PLAN, BUT HAVE INTENTIONAL OPPORTUNITIES TO PREPARE THEM FOR THEIR RETEST ON THE EOC WITH RETEACHING SOME OF THOSE ALGEBRA SKILLS THEY MISSED, BUT THEN ALSO HELPING TO PREPARE THEM FOR ALGEBRA TWO WITH THAT WHOLE MINDSET OF THINKING ABOUT OUR GUIDING STATEMENT, NUMBER TWO FOR VISION 2030.

SO THAT'S ONE CREATIVE WAY THAT WE'VE BEEN SUPPORTING OUR STUDENTS AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL AND FOCUSING ON THAT MASTER SCHEDULE AS OUR CAMPUS LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT IS GOING TO FOCUS ON A BOOK STUDY AND HELPING THEM KNOW WHAT PRODUCTIVE MASK STRUGGLE LOOKS LIKE IN THE CLASSROOM, AND THEN HOW CAN, AS PRINCIPALS, CAN THEY LEAD THEIR TEACHERS EVEN

[00:35:03]

THROUGH THAT PLC PROCESS TO HELP LEAD OUR STUDENTS TO HAVE SOME STRUGGLE, BUT NOT TOO MUCH STRUGGLE? LIKE HOW CAN WE FACILITATE THEIR LEARNING SO THAT THEY CAN BE STRONGER MATHEMATIC AND MATHEMATICAL LEARNERS? AND SO THAT'S ONE OF OUR AREAS OF FOCUS.

DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? TO MY LEFT? MS. MARCUCCI. FIRST OF ALL, I WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU FOR CELEBRATING YOUR BIRTHDAY WITH US TODAY. HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

THANK YOU. I DO APPRECIATE YOU TAKING TIME TO SHARE THIS WITH US, AND THE ONE THING THAT I REALLY WANTED TO FOCUS ON IS THE NEGATIVE TALK THAT KIDS GET IN THEIR HEADS.

IT IS SO HARD TO OVERCOME, AND I REALLY THINK THAT WITH THE ONLINE LEARNING AND THE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN GOING ON, THAT NEGATIVE SELF TALK HAS PROBABLY BECOME WORSE, AND SO THE PHRASE THAT YOU TALKED ABOUT, THE BUILDING STUDENTS' POSITIVE MATH IDENTITY, THAT REALLY RESONATES WITH ME, AND I'M REALLY WORRIED ABOUT OUR YOUNGER KIDS, AND SO WHEN I WAS LOOKING THROUGH THIS, YOU KNOW, WE TALKED A LITTLE BIT, OF COURSE, ABOUT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL BECAUSE THAT WE'RE FOCUSED ON ALGEBRA AND ALL OF THAT.

BUT I REALLY WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD ADDRESS MAYBE [INAUDIBLE] HELPING SOME OF THOSE YOUNGER KIDS THAT HAVE ALREADY GOTTEN IN THEIR HEAD.

THAT MATH IS HARD.

IT'S NOT FUN, YOU KNOW, AND HOW WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO BUILD ON THAT TO HELP THEM DO WELL WHEN THEY DO GET TO ALGEBRA.

SO ONE OF THE THINGS WE'RE REALLY HELPING IS DEVELOP OUR TEACHERS TO RECOGNIZE AND REALLY ANY ADULT IN MANSFIELD ISD, WE REALLY WANT TO EMPOWER EVERYBODY HERE TO--IT'S NOT OK TO SAY YOU'RE NOT A MATH PERSON BECAUSE THAT JUST GIVES A CHILD THE AUTOMATIC OUT, THAT "WELL, HEY, THAT ADULT SAYS MATH IS HARD, THEN IT'S OK FOR IT TO BE HARD FOR ME", AS OPPOSED TO SAYING, "YOU KNOW WHAT, I DIDN'T HAVE THE POSITIVE EXPERIENCE, BUT WE CAN LEARN THIS TOGETHER." SO WE'VE BEEN REALLY TALKING WITH OUR TEACHERS ABOUT HOW CAN WE HELP STUDENTS BE AWARE OF WHAT'S THEIR MATH STORY? AND SOME REALLY GREAT FIRST WEEKS OF SCHOOL ACTIVITIES WE HAVE IN PLACE IN THE CURRICULUM FOR ALL THE GRADE LEVELS IS A MATHEMATICAL MINDSET, AND THAT'S UNIT ZERO IN ALL OUR CURRICULUM. SO THE TEACHERS ARE ABLE TO HELP ASSOCIATE.

WE HAVE A LOT OF TEACHERS WHO ARE GREAT MATH TEACHERS AND THEY TALK ABOUT IN IN SCHOOL, MATH WAS NOT MY THING.

I STRUGGLED WITH IT UNTIL I HAD THAT GREAT TEACHER.

SO WE'RE WORKING WITH TEACHERS TO BE THAT BE THAT PERSON THAT CHANGES THAT TRAJECTORY FOR STUDENTS. ONE OF MY FAVORITE QUOTES BY JOE BOWLER SAYS THAT YOUR BELIEFS ABOUT MATHEMATICS ARE BASED ON THE EXPERIENCES THAT YOU'VE HAD, WHICH IS TRUE.

SO WE HAVE TO PROVIDE THOSE POSITIVE EXPERIENCES TO CHANGE THAT MINDSET.

THANK YOU FOR DOING THAT, BECAUSE I DO THINK THAT'S THE STARTING POINT.

WE ARE MATHEMATICIANS.

WE JUST HAVE TO OWN IT.

YEAH, I WAS JUST GOING TO SAY THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION, AND I DO APPRECIATE, YOU FINDING THE WEAKNESSES, PINPOINTING THOSE AND YOU HAVE A PLAN TO GET US WHERE WE NEED TO BE, AND SO I APPRECIATE THAT.

I LIKE THE POSITIVE ATTITUDE AND THAT WHOLE DYNAMIC.

SO THANK YOU FOR DOING THAT. THANK YOU.

TO MY RIGHT? MR. DAVIS. HAPPY BIRTHDAY AGAIN.

THANK YOU. SO JUST A QUICK QUESTION.

JUST DIVE A LITTLE DEEPER.

I KNOW WE HAD A ROBUST PARTICIPATION IN OUR SUMMER OPPORTUNITIES THIS PAST SUMMER, AND YOU REFERENCED IN YOUR IN YOUR PRESENTATION THAT A NUMBER OF FOLKS TOOK ADVANTAGE OF IT.

YOU KNOW, ROUGHLY WHAT WAS THAT PERCENTAGE OF FOLKS WHO WHO MAYBE WEREN'T SUCCESSFUL AND TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE SUMMER OPPORTUNITY ONE, AND AS PART OF TO THE DEGREE AT WHICH THEY WERE CONSIDERED SUCCESSFUL.

HOW MUCH WOULD THAT CHANGE THAT MARK FOR US FROM OUR OVERALL PERCENTAGE AS A DISTRICT? RIGHT. SO I THINK, YOU KNOW, WE [INAUDIBLE] LIKE 57 PERCENT.

SO, WOULD THAT HAVE BEEN [INAUDIBLE] SIXTY TWO PERCENT? THAT I'M NOT SURE OF.

I DON'T HAVE THAT DATA TO BE ABLE TO ANSWER THAT CORRECTLY.

I KNOW THAT WE DID HAVE A GOOD ENROLLMENT.

I'M NOT SURE, MS. YOUNG, IF YOU HAVE THAT INFORMATION.

SO I DON'T HAVE THOSE NUMBERS WITH ME TONIGHT, BUT I CAN GET THOSE TO YOU.

YEAH, I JUST KNOW WE TALKED ABOUT HOW MANY FOLKS TOOK ADVANTAGE AND IT WAS THE BIGGEST CLASS WE'VE HAD IN TERMS OF OVERALL LEVEL PARTICIPATION, AND I KNOW A SIGNIFICANT PART OF THAT IT WAS MENTIONED PREVIOUSLY AT A PREVIOUS MEETING WAS THAT AUDIENCE.

RIGHT, AND I WOULD JUST LOVE MAYBE AT A FUTURE MEETING, IF WE COULD HAVE SOME FOLLOW UP TO GET A FEEL FOR WHAT THAT LOOK WAS? ABSOLUTELY. I THINK THAT FOR ME, IT WOULD BE HELPFUL.

I DON'T WANT TO WALK AWAY THINKING THAT WE HAVE EVERYBODY AT THE SAME POSITION IF IN FACT, WE HAVE MOVED SOME FOLKS ALONG THAT CONTINUUM.

RIGHT. THAT'S A REASON TO CELEBRATE, ACTUALLY, AND I DO THINK ONCE WE START, ESPECIALLY FOR THE GRADES K THROUGH EIGHT, BECAUSE WE DID HAVE THE SUMMER OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR LEARNERS THERE THAT WE CAN LOOK AT OUR FALL BEGINNING OF YEAR MAP DATA TO SEE WHERE OUR

[00:40:05]

STUDENTS ARE. SO WE MAY BE ABLE TO SEE FOR THOSE PARTICULAR STUDENTS THAT IN THE WE CAN SEE WHERE THEIR SCORES WERE IN THE SPRING, AND THEN WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE? WHAT DOES THERE BEGINNING A YEAR DATA LOOK LIKE WHEN THEY TEST IN SEPTEMBER FOR THAT? THAT MAY BE ABLE TO GIVE US SOME JUST-IN-TIME INFORMATION BEFORE WAITING FURTHER, BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE OTHER THAN THE RETEST FOR ALGEBRA ONE, WE DON'T HAVE RETESTS FOR ANYBODY ELSE YET TO HAVE THAT DATA YET.

RIGHT. DR. SCOTT.

JUST MR. DAVIS TO YOUR POINT, THERE'S MULTIPLE REASONS WE WON'T DROP THAT BALL AS FAR AS THOSE KIDS. NUMBER ONE, THEY NEED IT TO GRADUATE.

THEY HAVE TO PASS THAT EXAM TO GRADUATE.

SO WE'RE GOING TO GIVE THEM WHATEVER THEY NEED TOTO RETEST AND GET WHERE THEY NEED TO BE.

NUMBER TWO, IF YOU REMEMBER VISION 2030, THE MEASURE THERE THEN MOVED TO ALGEBRA TWO, AND IF WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO TAKE THOSE STUDENTS THROUGH THE THROUGH THE PROPER STEPS TO GET TO ALGEBRA TWO, WE'RE GOING TO NEED THEM TO HAVE A SOLID BASE IN ALGEBRA ONE.

SO THAT IS A STRONG FOCUS AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE FOR US.

MR. SNEED. YES.

THANK YOU FOR A GREAT PRESENTATION.

I DO HAVE SOME CONCERNS ABOUT THE 43 PERCENT THAT DIDN'T PASS, AND I'M SURE THAT YOU GUYS WILL HANDLE THAT. BUT MY QUESTION IS, ASSUMING THAT WE HAVE AS NORMAL A YEAR AS WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE. DO YOU ANTICIPATE THAT WE WILL BE BACK ON ON TARGET WITH OUR ULTIMATE GOAL BECAUSE WE DROPPED FROM SEVENTY FIVE TO FIFTY SEVEN PERCENT, AND THESE ARE DIFFERENT KIDS WE'LL BE TESTING THIS COMING YEAR.

BUT DO YOU ASSUME THAT WE'LL BE BACK AT AT AT THE LEVEL OF THE PREVIOUS YEAR OR EVEN BEYOND? YES, I DO BELIEVE THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO IMPROVE.

I'M NOT SURE THAT WE'LL BE ABLE TO IMMEDIATELY GET BACK TO WHERE WE LEFT OFF.

THAT MAY BE A ONE OR TWO YEAR PROCESS.

BUT I DO THINK WHAT'S EXCITING TO SEE WITH THE STRUCTURES IN PLACE FOR OUR CURRENT ALGEBRA ONE, WE HAVE MANY COURSES THAT ARE MINI CAMPUSES WHERE IT'S DOUBLE BLOCKED AND THE PLC PROCESS.

SO THEY'RE GOING TO BE INTENTIONAL ABOUT HOW WAS THE STUDENT'S PERFORMANCE IN EIGHTH GRADE, HOW CAN WE SIMULTANEOUSLY TEACH CURRENT GRADE LEVEL CONTENT WHILE SCAFFOLDING AND GIVING JUST-IN-TIME INTERVENTIONS FOR UNIT BY UNIT, AND THAT PLC PROCESS IS GOING TO BE A GAME CHANGER, I THINK, FOR MANY OF OUR TEACHERS TO BE ABLE TO KNOW RIGHT AWAY WHAT'S THE INTERVENTION THAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN.

LET'S GET IT DONE AND THEN LET'S MOVE THEM ALONG, ONGOING, AS OPPOSED TO WAITING FOR BENCHMARKS TO BE ABLE TO START THAT INTERVENTION PROCESS.

SO, YES, THAT IS OUR GOAL, AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO REST UNTIL WE REACH IT.

MR. SNEED, JUST KEEP IN MIND THAT IN THE SPRING OF 20, WE DIDN'T TEST AT ALL, AND SO WE'RE REALLY THIS IS TWO YEARS BACK, AND SO WE KNOW THAT ALGEBRA ONE STILL NEEDS TO BE A FOCUS GOING INTO VISION 2030, EVEN THOUGH ALGEBRA TWO IS ON OUR SCORECARD.

BUT AS A CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION DEPARTMENT, WE'RE STILL GOING TO MONITOR ALGEBRA ONE , AND PART OF THAT IS ADDRESSING THOSE GAPS THAT CAME FROM THE LAST TWO YEARS.

MR. CANEDY. ACTUALLY, THEY TOOK MY COMMENTS, BUT I DID WANT TO WISH YOU HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

[CHUCKLING] NOW, I WILL GO AHEAD AND SAY AND IT'S TO MR. SNEED POINT, AND I THINK THIS IS HAPPENING NOT ONLY IN EDUCATION, BUT IT'S HAPPENING IN THE WORLD AS WE RECOVER FROM COVID.

I THINK TOO OFTEN ENTITIES, BUSINESSES, SCHOOL DISTRICTS, WHATEVER, HAVE AN EXPECTATION THAT THEY'RE GOING TO RECOVER COMPLETELY WITHIN A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, AND THERE WILL BE EMOTIONAL RAMIFICATIONS TO THE RECOVERY.

THE ONE THING I DO COMPLIMENT YOU AND YOUR TEAM ON IS, YOU KNOW, YOU CAN SIT BACK AND SAY, WELL, THIS IS ALL BECAUSE OF COVID, AND THEN WE JUST GO BACK TO TRADITIONAL METHODS.

BUT IT'S OBVIOUS THAT YOU'VE GONE TO CAUSE ANALYSIS AND YOU'VE COME UP WITH SOME PROGRAMS WHICH WILL AID US GETTING BACK TO WHERE WE NEED TO BE AND EVEN BEYOND THAT IN A PROJECTED PERIOD OF TIME. SO THANK YOU FOR THAT ANALYSIS.

YOU'RE WELCOME. MS. FARRAR. I JUST WANTED TO PIGGYBACK ON WHAT RANDALL WAS SAYING.

I THINK IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT THE GREEN SLIDES THAT WE SAW, THE LAST THING THAT EVEN THOUGH THAT FIFTY SEVEN, SEVEN PERCENT IS SO SHOCKING TO ALL OF US, REALLY, AND WE KNOW THAT WE CAN DO BETTER, AND THE CURRICULUM THAT WE HAD IN PLACE, CLEARLY WE ARE DOING SOMETHING BETTER THAN ALMOST EVERY DISTRICT IN THE AREA.

SO I'M CONFIDENT THAT WE CAN BUILD ON THAT AND CONTINUE TO IMPROVE.

SO THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

[00:45:01]

YEAH, THIS IS GREAT, NEWS.

THIS IS GREAT INFORMATION FOR US.

BUT I THINK REALLY WHAT IT DOES IS IT, YOU KNOW, SHINES A SPOTLIGHT ON YOU AND YOUR TEAM FOR KIND OF THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX AND GETTING US THERE.

MY PRIME EXAMPLE IS, MAN, I SURE WISH THERE WAS ALGEBRA ONE POINT FIVE WHEN I WAS IN SCHOOL, [CHUCKLING] BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU ALL, BUT I NEEDED THAT.

BUT, YOU KNOW, IT WASN'T UNTIL A TEACHER TOLD ME THAT I COULD DO IT, THAT I COULD DO MATH , AND SO I THINK AS KIND OF GETTING DOWN INTO RELATIONSHIPS AND THAT PEOPLE MATTER AND KIDS MATTER AND STUDENTS MATTER, RELATIONSHIPS MATTER IS WHAT ULTIMATELY HELPS US TO TEACH AND MAKE THE HEADWAY THAT WE DO.

SO THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU.

DR. CANTU. WE'LL MOVE ON TO SEVEN POINT THREE.

YES, MA'AM. THANK YOU, LISA.

I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE BRANDON JOHNSON TO COME FORWARD AND GIVE US OUR LONE STAR GOVERNANCE REPORT ON SOG 3 AND COLLEGE CAREER MILITARY READINESS.

GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE.

HOW ARE YOU ALL? SO I HAD TO TAKE OFF MY MASK BECAUSE I'M SO EXCITED ABOUT WHAT I'M GOING TO PRESENT TO YOU TONIGHT, AND IT REALLY SPEAKS TO THE WORK THAT OUR HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPALS AND OUR COUNSELORS AND OUR TEACHERS ARE DOING AND OUR KIDS TO GET ACROSS THE LINE. AND SO WE'RE GOING TO GO ON A LITTLE BIT OF A JOURNEY AND TO GET STARTED, THIS PRESENTATION FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE AT HOME IS A CLOSE FOR OUR VISION 2020 GPM 3.1, 3.2 AND 3.3 FOR CCMR. SO TO GET STARTED, WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT A LITTLE OVER A COUPLE OF ACRONYMS, AND SO I'M GOING TO THROW OUT A LOT OF ACRONYMS BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT I LIVE EVERY SINGLE DAY, AND I REALIZE THAT NOT EVERYBODY ALWAYS KNOWS WHAT THESE THINGS MEAN.

SO CCMR, COLLEGE CAREER, MILITARY, READY, SOG, STUDENT OUTCOME GOAL, GPM GOAL, PROGRESS MEASURE, AND THEN THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT THE DATA THAT I'M TALKING ABOUT TONIGHT IS THAT THERE IS A ONE YEAR LAG IN THE DATA.

SO I'M GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE CLASS OF 2020.

I'M GOING TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE CLASS OF 2021, AND THEN I'M GOING TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE CLASS OF 2022.

NOW, JUST AS HARD AS IT IS FOR YOU TO KEEP UP.

IT'S HARD FOR ME TO SAY ALL THOSE DIFFERENT CLASSES.

SO, I APOLOGIZE IN ADVANCE IF I GET TRIPPED UP.

SO JUST A REVIEW OF OUR SOG 3, WE MONITOR THREE DIFFERENT THINGS.

3.1 IS SAT/ACT/TSI READING AND MATH PERFORMANCE.

GPM 3.2 IS ADVANCED PLACEMENT PERFORMANCE, THREE OR MORE, AND THEN GPM 3.3 IS DUAL CREDIT HOURS, THREE OR MORE HOURS IN ELA AND MATH, OR NINE TOTAL CREDIT HOURS.

OK. SO HOW DO WE KNOW HOW WE'RE DOING? AND I JUST WANT TO KIND OF CHANNEL THE OLYMPICS, BECAUSE I WATCH A LOT OF OLYMPICS AND I WANTED TO GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO ALL OF OUR OUR FALL SPORTS AND UIL ACTIVITIES, BECAUSE THEY WORK REALLY, REALLY HARD, AND A LOT OF TIMES YOU DON'T KNOW HOW THAT FIRST NOTE IS GOING TO SOUND WHEN YOU PLAY OUT ON THE FIELD FOR THE FIRST TIME OR THE FIRST SERVE OR, YOU KNOW, YOU DON'T KNOW WHETHER YOU'RE GOING TO THE FIRST TIME AROUND THE TRACK, HOW ARE YOU'RE GOING TO DO COMPARED TO EVERYBODY ELSE? AND YOU HAVE TO YOU HAVE TO TRUST THE PROCESS, AND WE HAVE A REALLY GOOD PROCESS, AND IT STARTS WITH UNDERSTANDING OUR DATA AND CLEANING OUR DATA, AND SO TO GIVE YOU AN OVERVIEW, CLEANING THE DATA IS A COMPLICATED PROCESS.

WE TAKE STATE ENROLLMENT VERIFICATION DATA.

WE TAKE FEDERAL ENROLLMENT VERIFICATION DATA, TSI, DUAL CREDIT COLLEGE BOARD.

WE'VE GOT INDUSTRY BASED CERTIFICATIONS, AND THEN WE'VE GOT THIS CUMULATIVE DISAGGREGATION OF OUR DATA THAT COMES FROM THE PREVIOUS YEAR AND GRADUATION, AND SO WHEN WE GET THIS DATA, IT TAKES US A FULL YEAR TO CLEAN.

SO WHAT I'M GOING TO PRESENT TO YOU, THE NIGHT IS THE END OF CLASS IN 2020, WHICH I STARTED TO PRESENT TO YOU IN FEBRUARY OF THIS YEAR.

AND THEN I WILL START US ON THE CLASS OF 2021 WITH THE CLEANING PROCESS LOOKS LIKE, AND THEN GIVE YOU A PREVIEW OF WHAT THE CURRENT CLASS OF 2022 LOOKS LIKE.

SO LET'S GET STARTED.

SO SOG, OUR FINAL PERFORMANCE IS A SIXTY FOUR.

IF YOU RECALL IN FEBRUARY I TOLD YOU THAT WE WERE NOT QUITE WHERE WE WANTED TO BE, AND WE WERE BELOW GOAL, BUT WE WERE NEAR WHERE WE WANTED TO BE, AND WE KNEW THAT THE CLEANING OF THE DATA WOULD ONLY CAUSE US TO GO UP.

SO WE WENT FROM A FIFTY NINE TO A SIXTY FOUR, AND SO YOU MIGHT BE WONDERING, WELL, WE WERE AT SIXTY NINE LAST YEAR AND WE'RE AT SIXTY FOUR THIS YEAR, AND YOU'RE TELLING ME

[00:50:05]

THAT WE'RE DOING REALLY WELL.

LET ME SHOW YOU WHY.

A LOT OF INFORMATION ON THIS SLIDE, AND I'M GOING TO BREAK IT DOWN STEP BY STEP.

SO THE REASON WHY WE'RE AT OUR GOAL IS BECAUSE WE DID A LOT OF THINGS SYSTEMICALLY TO IMPACT THE DATA OF OUR STUDENTS PERFORMANCE, BUT TEA KIND OF CHANGED THE GAME ON US IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GAME, AND SO WE WERE HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION AND WE WERE GETTING POINTS FOR THINGS IN PREVIOUS YEARS THAT ALL OF A SUDDEN TEA CAME OUT AND THEY SAID, YOU'RE NO LONGER GOING TO GET POINTS FOR THOSE THINGS.

SO, FOR INSTANCE, TEA CHANGED THE FORMULA, THEY TOOK OUT MILITARY ENLISTMENT.

THEY TOOK OUT A COHERENT SEQUENCE FOR A HALF POINT.

OUR TSIA SCORES ARE NOW FINAL, AND THOSE WERE IN PROGRESS EARLIER IN FEBRUARY WHEN I PRESENTED THAT TO YOU. THIS PARTICULAR CLASS, CLASS OF 2020 DID NOT GET THE OPPORTUNITY DUE TO COVID TO ACTUALLY EXPERIENCE OUR SAT INSIDE THE SCHOOL DAY, WHICH WE HAD PLANNED FOR THE SPRING OF 2020.

WE BECAME A TSI TESTING SITE, AND NOW WE CAN TEST OUR STUDENTS AT THEIR LEISURE WHEN THEY'RE READY TO TEST INSTEAD OF HAVING TO WAIT FOR TCC IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT.

WE EXPANDED AND TRACKED OUR DUAL CREDIT OFFERINGS, AND THEN WE EXPANDED OUR CAPITALIZE ON OUR TEA EXPANDED CERTIFICATIONS.

SO AS YOU LOOK, I'M GOING TO TAKE YOU THROUGH 3.1 TO 3.3.

3.1 IS MET TSI, A IN READING AND MATH, AND SO WE WERE CLOSE TO OUR GOAL.

WE WERE TRENDING UP AT ONE POINT, AND THEN WE ENDED UP AT 46 PERCENT, AND SO THAT IS AN AREA THAT IS REALLY IMPACTED ON THE STUDENTS ABILITY TO TEST, AND SO AS WE EXPERIENCE COVID, WE HAVE A LOT OF STUDENTS THAT WEREN'T COMFORTABLE TO COME TEST.

THEY TESTED AT DIFFERENT LOCATIONS, AND WE DIDN'T ALWAYS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PREPARE THEM FOR THE NEXT TEST.

AND SO WE MISSED SOME OPPORTUNITIES THERE, AND THAT'S WHY THAT PERCENTAGES IS NOT QUITE WHERE WE WANTED IT TO BE. SO FOR 3.2 IS AP CRITERIA, AND OUR STUDENTS PERFORM THREE OR HIGHER. TWENTY FOUR PERCENT OF THE STUDENTS PERFORM THREE OR HIGHER ON AP CRITERIA, AND SO WE CONTINUE TO SEE THAT TREND INCREASE, AND WE'RE GREEN THERE, AND THEN ON 3.3, FOUR DUAL CREDIT HOURS, WE HAVE SLOWLY INCREASED AND HAS BEEN REALLY DIFFICULT.

IT'S KIND OF LIKE A WEIGHT LIFTER WHO LIFTS A LOT OF WEIGHT, AND THE STRONGER YOU GET, THE HARDER IT IS TO IMPROVE, AND SO THAT ONE PERCENTAGE POINT TAKES A LOT OF WORK, AND WE DID A FANTASTIC JOB TO GET THAT ONE PERCENTAGE POINT INCREASE AND OUR DUAL CREDIT STUDENTS CONTINUE TO BE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL AS THEY ENROLL AND COMPLETE THOSE COURSES.

SO TRENDING.

OVER TIME, THIS IS WHAT THE CLASS OF 2020 LOOK LIKE, IF I WERE TO REPORT THIS INFORMATION TO YOU IN AUGUST, WE WOULD HAVE BEEN A FORTY NINE IN AUGUST.

WE WOULD HAVE BEEN A FIFTY NINE AS WE CLEAN THE DATA IN FEBRUARY, AND THEN WE'D FINISH WITH A SIXTY FOUR, AND THE REASON WHY I'M SO EXCITED IS BECAUSE WHEN WE LOOK AT THE WORK THAT WAS DONE LAST YEAR, WE ARE STARTING IN A MUCH BETTER PLACE BECAUSE OF ALL THE SYSTEMS THAT WE PUT IN PLACE TO PREPARE OUR KIDS TO BE MORE SUCCESSFUL AS WE MOVE TOWARDS THE COMPLETION OF VISION 2020 AND TOWARDS VISION 2030.

SO WE'RE CURRENTLY SITTING AT FIFTY SIX COMPARED TO FORTY NINE AT THIS TIME LAST YEAR FOR THE CLASS OF 2021, AND THAT SHOULD DEFINITELY BE CELEBRATED, AND ONE NOTE I'D LIKE TO ADD IS THERE WAS RECENTLY A HOUSE BILL, HOUSE BILL 773, WHICH ADDED BACK IN A FULL CREDIT POINT FOR COHERENT SEQUENCE FOR A STUDENT TO COMPLETE COHERENT SEQUENCE.

WE'RE NOT SURE AT THIS POINT WHETHER THAT WILL COUNT WITH THE CLASS OF 2021 OR WHETHER THAT WILL MOVE FORWARD WITH 2022.

BUT IT'S AN ADDED BONUS BECAUSE WE'RE ALREADY SEVEN POINTS HIGHER THAN WE WERE AT THIS TIME LAST YEAR. SO, THIS IS WHAT THE CURRENT TRACKER LOOKS LIKE, AND I'M GOING TO BREAK IT DOWN AS WELL. WHEN WE LOOK AT THE CLASS OF 2021, LAST YEAR'S CLASS VERSUS THE CLASS OF 2020. SO WITH STILL MUCH, MUCH, MUCH MORE DATA TO BE CLEANED, WE ARE AT 38 PERCENT FOR 3.1 ON MET TSI IN MATH AND READING.

WE ARE ALREADY TRENDING ABOVE WHERE WE WERE WITH THE CLASS OF TWENTY, TWENTY, TWENTY FIVE

[00:55:02]

PERCENT FOR AP CRITERIA OF THREE OR HIGHER, AND THEN WE'RE ALREADY AT 30 PERCENT FOR OUR DUAL CREDIT HOURS.

AND SO I CANNOT EXPRESS MORE THAT I'M SO EXCITED FOR THE WORK OF OUR PRINCIPLES AND OUR COUNSELORS AND OUR TEACHERS AND OUR KIDS, BECAUSE THIS IS REALLY GREAT NEWS.

BUT I BET YOU'RE WONDERING, WHAT ABOUT THE CURRENT CLASS? AND SO I KIND OF WANT TO SHOW YOU, HERE'S WHERE WE ARE WITH THE CURRENT CLASS OF 2022 OF CCMR. I WANT TO NOTE THAT THE BOTTOM AGAIN, HOUSE BILL 773 WILL ADD IN A COHERENT SEQUENCE, AND THAT SHOULD BE FOR THIS CLASS FOR SURE, AND WE'RE SITTING AT A FORTY TWO AND WE STILL HAVE WORK TO DO AND WE STILL HAVE AN ENTIRE YEAR TO IMPACT THIS NUMBER, AND SO WE ARE AT A GREAT STARTING PLACE.

WE HAVE PUT SYSTEMS IN PLACE TO IMPROVE OPPORTUNITIES AND ACCESS FOR OUR STUDENTS, AND WE TRACK THAT ACCESS AND WE PUT INTERVENTION PLANS IN PLACE TO GIVE OUR KIDS A CHANCE TO BE SUCCESSFUL, AND SO AS A LAST NOTE, I WANTED TO JUST CALL OUT SOME OF THE ASSESSMENTS THAT THE CLASS OF 2022 AND BEYOND HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO MEET COLLEGE CAREER AND MILITARY READINESS, AND THESE ARE THE ASSESSMENTS.

SO WHEN YOU LOOK AT IF YOU FOLLOW IT OCTOBER 13TH, WE WILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO TEST OUR SENIORS IN SAT INSIDE THE SCHOOL DAY.

OUR JUNIORS WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE THE PSAT NMSQT FOR THE NATIONAL MERIT, OUR CLASS OF 2024 WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE THAT AS WELL, AND THEN OUR FRESHMEN WILL TAKE THE PSAT 8/9, WHICH IS WHERE WE GET THE AP POTENTIAL TO SEE WHO OUR NEXT NATIONAL MERIT SCHOLARS MIGHT BE, AND THEN OUR JUNIORS AND SOPHOMORES HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE TSI AS THEY PREPARE TO ENROLL IN DUAL CREDIT COURSES, AND SO TO WRAP THINGS UP WITH THIS YEAR, WE WILL FINISH ON MARCH 2ND AND GIVE OUR JUNIORS, THIS YEAR'S CURRENT JUNIORS, AN OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE THE SAT INSIDE THE SCHOOL DAY, AND WE WILL ALSO PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR SENIORS THAT HAVE NOT MET CCMR AT THAT POINT OF THE YEAR.

ANOTHER ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE THE TSI TEST TO MEET CCMR, AND SO IT'S A LOT.

BUT HOW DO WE KNOW THAT WE'RE DOING WELL? BECAUSE OUR DATA IS TRENDING UP AND WE CONTINUE TO FOLLOW OUR SYSTEMS AND PROCESSES AND WE TRUST OUR PROCESS. QUESTIONS? QUESTIONS TO MY LEFT? MS. MARCUCCI. THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I NOTICED WHEN I WAS LOOKING THROUGH THERE THAT YOU DIDN'T REALLY TALK ABOUT, BUT THERE WAS AN INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS WITH AP TESTING, AND SO NOT ONLY DID THE PERCENTAGE INCREASE, BUT THE NUMBER OF KIDS THAT ARE TAKING IT INCREASED, TOO.

SO THAT'S SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE.

THAT'S REALLY GREAT. I'M GLAD TO SEE MORE KIDS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THOSE OPPORTUNITIES, AND DUAL CREDIT WENT UP AND THEN IT KIND OF WENT DOWN AGAIN, TOO.

BUT I REALLY WANT TO LOOK AT THOSE NUMBERS, TOO, BECAUSE IT'S GOOD TO SEE MORE KIDS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MORE OPPORTUNITIES THAT ARE PRESENTED TO THEM, AND SO THE NUMBER OF KIDS THAT ARE PARTICIPATING IS IMPORTANT TO ME, TOO.

BUT IT'S GREAT TO SEE THE PERCENTAGES GO UP, BUT IT'S ALSO GREAT TO SEE THE NUMBER OF KIDS THAT ARE PARTICIPATING, TOO.

SO GOOD JOB ON BOTH OF THOSE FRONTS, AND I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE HIGHLIGHTED THAT.

SO THANK YOU, AND IF THERE'S ONE MORE THING THAT I MIGHT HIGHLIGHT IS OUR INDUSTRY BASED CERTIFICATIONS, BECAUSE ALREADY TRENDING FOUR PERCENTAGE POINTS HIGHER THAN WE HAVE IN PREVIOUS YEARS, AND SO, SO FANTASTIC. I REALLY APPRECIATE THAT, BECAUSE I THINK, YOU KNOW, THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE THINGS THAT TRULY WILL HELP DETERMINE IF THESE KIDS ARE GOING TO BE SUCCESSFUL ONCE THEY LEAVE HERE. I MEAN, WE'VE GOT DATA THAT SHOWS THAT, AND SO IT'S GOOD TO HAVE GOOD PERCENTAGES AND THE INCREASE IN NUMBERS.

SO THANK YOU. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS TO MY LEFT? TO MY RIGHT, MR. DAVIS? MR. JOHNSON, THANK YOU. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY GREAT NEWS, AND SO THE CCMR PIECE OF OUR EQUATION, I THINK WE'VE TALKED PRIVATELY, IS PROBABLY THE THING THAT I GET MOST EXCITED ABOUT FOR OUR YOUNG PEOPLE IN TERMS OF THEIR PREPARATION FOR LIFE ONCE THEY LEAVE MISD.

JUST A QUICK FOLLOW UP.

WELL, THANK YOU FOR THIS AND THANK YOU FOR THIS.

THIS IS REASON TO CELEBRATE.

JUST A QUICK FINAL QUESTION REGARDING OUR FOLKS WHO ARE ENLISTING IN THE ARMED SERVICES, AND I KNOW IT'S BEEN AN AREA OF FOCUS AND WE HAD A CHANCE TO RECOGNIZE AND CELEBRATE THAT GRADUATION LAST YEAR BY THE OVERWHELMING NUMBERS OF YOUNG PEOPLE WHO STOOD UP TO BE RECOGNIZED. I KNOW THAT NUMBER IS TRAILING A COUPLE OF YEARS BEHIND.

[01:00:05]

IS THERE ANY REASON WHY THAT'S MORE THAN ONE YEAR AS OPPOSED TO EVERYTHING ELSE IS LIKE ONE YEAR, BUT THIS SEEMS TO BE LIKE TWO YEARS BEHIND TRAILING.

SO HONESTLY, THE STATE IS STILL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW THEY CAN GET THE DATA TO US, AND SO THAT'S THE STRUGGLE WITH MILITARY ENLISTMENT, AND THAT'S WHY ULTIMATELY I BELIEVE IT WAS PULLED FROM THE FORMULA, BECAUSE WE NEED A BETTER SYSTEM STATEWIDE IN ORDER TO GET THAT INFORMATION IN ORDER TO THE SCORE DISTRICTS.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, MR. JOHNSON. YOU'RE SO ENTERTAINING TO LISTEN TO WHEN YOU'RE ARE SITTING HERE TALKING ABOUT A LOT OF DATA. BUT I JUST WANT ANYONE WHO CAN'T SEE MR. JOHNSON TO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS WHY WE'RE SUCCESSFUL.

THESE ARE THE PEOPLE THAT WE HAVE ENCOURAGING OUR ADMINISTRATORS AND OUR TEACHERS AND STAFF, SOMEONE THAT AT EIGHT THIRTY NINE O'CLOCK AT NIGHT IS THIS EXCITED ABOUT DATA.

[CHUCKLING] AND SO THAT.

BUT I MEAN THAT WITH SUCH A SINCERE HEART, BECAUSE HE REALLY WANTS EVERYBODY TO DO WELL, AND THIS IS SO MEANINGFUL TO HIM, AND I'M NOT SURE THAT SOMETIMES WE DON'T SHOULDN'T TAKE A PAUSE JUST TO SAY THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU DO TO ENERGIZE US AND THE FOLKS IN THE DISTRICT AS WELL. SO THANK YOU, MR. JOHNSON. YOU MAY BOW.

[LAUGHTER] I DON'T KNOW ABOUT BOW, BUT.

THIS MOVES US ON TO NUMBER EIGHT DISCUSSION FOR LONE STAR GOVERNANCE QUARTERLY BOARD

[8. Discussion]

SELF-EVALUATION. SO FOLKS UP HERE, YOU ALL HAVE YOUR QUARTERLY PROGRESS REPORTS.

WE'VE ALL MET IN OUR TEAMS, TWO MAN TEAMS HERE.

SO WHAT WE'LL DO IS WE'LL JUST GO DOWN THE LIST REAL QUICK, AND IF YOU CAN GIVE A REALLY BRIEF SYNOPSIS FROM YOUR TEAM ABOUT WHERE WE WERE AND WHERE WE ARE PRESENTLY, WE CAN GO THROUGH THIS RATHER QUICKLY.

I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE DOCUMENTING THIS AND PEOPLE KNOW WHERE WE ARE ON IT.

SO VISION ONE AND TWO.

THIS IS MS. MARCUCCI AND WARREN DAVIS.

ONE OF YOU GUYS WANT TO TAKE TO TAKE THIS? I'M HAPPY TO TALK ABOUT THAT A LITTLE BIT.

THIS IS ONE WHERE WE'VE BEEN VERY STEADY.

WE WERE AT MASTERS FOCUS.

WE CONTINUE TO STAY THERE.

YOU KNOW, AS EVIDENCED THROUGH THE STUDENT OUTCOME GOALS AND THE GOAL PROGRESS MEASURES THAT HAVE BEEN REPORTED ON REGULARLY.

AND THEN THAT SAME IS TRUE FOR VISION 2, AS WELL.

YOU KNOW THAT WE CONTINUE TO STAY ON TRACK WITH THOSE, SO 15 AND 15.

GREAT. THANK YOU. VISION THREE AND FOUR.

MS. THOMAS AND MR. SNEED. I CAN DO IT.

I CAN REPORT. SO WE HIT MASTERS FOCUS BACK IN NOVEMBER, AND WE HAVE STAYED STEADY ON THAT. SO WE JUST NEED TO MAINTAIN OUR CONSTRAINTS AND THEORY OF ACTION, MAKE SURE WE'RE CURRENT, AND THEN ON VISION FOUR WE'VE BEEN AT MASTERS FOCUS FOR QUITE A WHILE, SO WE JUST NEED TO MAINTAIN WHAT WE'RE DOING.

NEXT ONE ACCOUNTABILITY ONE MS. MARCUCCI AND MR. SNEED.

I'LL BE HAPPY TO TALK ABOUT THAT.

SO WE WERE AT MEETS FOCUS PRIOR AND WE'RE AT MEETS FOCUS NOW, AND THE BIG REASON WHY IS THE PERCENTAGE OF TIME THAT'S SPENT ON FOCUSING ON STUDENT OUTCOME GOALS.

THE LAST THREE QUARTERS HAVE BEEN AT THIRTY EIGHT PERCENT, THIRTY FIVE PERCENT AND THIRTY TWO PERCENT, AND THE LAST QUARTER WE WERE AT THIRTY PERCENT, AND I KNOW THAT WE'VE HAD A LOT OF THINGS THAT HAVE KIND OF TAKEN US OFF THAT.

BUT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE REALLY NEED TO DO IS TO CONTINUE TO FOCUS ON THE STUDENT OUTCOME GOALS AND TRYING TO GET OUR PERCENTAGE UP TO AT LEAST 50 PERCENT OF OUR TIME BEING SPENT ON THOSE.

THANK YOU, MA'AM. GOING BACK.

WE'VE GOT LOTS OF [INAUDIBLE].

ALL RIGHT, WE'VE GOT STRUCTURE TEAM MS. MARCUCCI AND MS. THOMAS.

I CAN DO THAT.

WE'RE ALMOST, WE'RE AT MEETS FOCUS, WE'RE ALMOST AT MASTERS FOCUS.

WE JUST GOT ONE LITTLE ITEM TO WORK ON, AND THAT'S JUST GETTING OUR BOARD AGENDA MATERIALS TO SEVEN CALENDAR DAYS AHEAD OF TIME THAT WE'RE NOT.

[INAUDIBLE] OH, I'M SORRY.

I THOUGHT IT WAS, NO, YOU DID, RIGHT.

WE JUST SKIPPED ACCOUNTABILITY.

OH, NO, I GOT IT.

I JUST FLIPPED MY PAGES TOO FAST.

SO BASICALLY, JUST MAKE SURE WE GET THE FINAL VERSION WHERE IT'S NOT BEING CHANGED SEVEN DAYS PRIOR. SO WE'RE DOING REALLY WELL.

IT'S JUST THAT ONE LITTLE THING THAT WE NEED TO TWEAK, AND THAT'S IT.

SOUNDS GOOD. ACCOUNTABILITY 2, IS MR. SNEED AND MYSELF.

SO LAST QUARTER WE WERE AT MEETS FOCUS, OUR CURRENT QUARTER.

WE ARE AT MASTERS FOCUS.

THIS WAS THE BOARD USING OUR SELF EVALUATION TOOL QUARTERLY, MAKING SURE WE'RE KEEPING UP WITH THAT, MODIFYING OUR STUDENT OUTCOME GOALS AND GOAL PROGRESS MEASURES.

SO WE'RE WHERE WE NEED TO BE CURRENTLY AND MONITORING AS WELL.

[01:05:01]

SO NEXT ONE IS ADVOCACY TEAM MR. CANEDY AND MR. DAVIS.

I'LL TAKE THAT. CURRENT QUARTER, WE CONTINUE TO DISPLAY ALL STUDENT DATA THAT THE BOARD HOLDS, REGULARLY SCHEDULED BOARD MEETINGS, AND WE ALSO ORIENTED THE NEWLY APPOINTED BOARD MEMBERS, WHICH WAS ONE OF OUR TASKS FOR NEXT QUARTER.

ONE OF THE GOALS WE'VE ALWAYS HAD IS TO ESTABLISH STRONGER TWO WAY COMMUNICATION WITH THE COMMUNITY VIA THINGS SUCH AS TOWN HALL MEETINGS, WHICH LAST YEAR WE WERE PRECLUDED FROM DOING THAT. BUT WE ANTICIPATE BEING ABLE TO DO THOSE IN THE 21-22 SCHOOL YEAR.

WE'RE CURRENTLY AT MASTER FOCUS AND ANTICIPATE MAINTAINING MASTERS FOCUS INTO THE END OF THE YEAR. THE LAST ONE IS FOR OUR UNITY TEAM.

THIS IS MR. CANEDY AND MYSELF, MR. CANEDY, DO YOU WANT TO SPEAK TO THIS? YES, WE'RE AT MASTERS' FOCUSED HAND CURRENTLY, AND THAT INVOLVES THE BOARD CONSTRAINTS AND THE CONSTRAINTS THAT WE PLACE UPON THE SUPERINTENDENT, AND IN ALL MEASURES, WE HAVE MET THAT FOCUS. SO WE ANTICIPATE MAINTAINING MASTERS FOCUS IN UNIT BOARD UNITY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. I THINK WE ALL CAN SPEAK TO THE FACT THAT LONE STAR GOVERNANCE IS REALLY KIND OF HELP US NARROW AND MAKE OUR PLAN REALLY PRECISE AND MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE NEARING OUR FOCUS ON WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT AND OUR GOALS THAT WE'RE SETTING.

SO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE WORK THAT GETS PUT INTO ALL THIS STUFF, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE A LOT OF THIS WORK IS DONE OFF TIME AS WELL AS DURING MEETINGS.

SO THIS MOVES US TO NUMBER NINE PUBLIC COMMENTS, THE CORRECT PROCEDURE FOR ADDRESSING THE

[9. Public Comments]

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 PRESENTATIONS 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, ARE THERE ANY MORE CARDS? OUR FIRST SPEAKER TONIGHT IS DENNIS L.

GOOD EVENING, MEMBERS OF THE MANSFIELD SCHOOL BOARD AND DR.

CANTU. MY NAME IS DENISE L.

I WANT TO COMMENT ON THE CONSIDERATION OF THE APPROVAL OF THE 2021 2022 STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT, WHICH IS TO BE VOTED ON BY THE SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS AT TONIGHT'S MEETING.

ON PAGE 11 OF THE STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT, UNDER THE HEADING PROHIBITED AVERSIVE TECHNIQUES, THERE ARE THREE BULLETED ITEMS THAT I WOULD LIKE TO KEEP MY COMMENTS FOCUSED ON. THOSE THREE ITEMS ARE DENYING ADEQUATE AIR, IMPAIRING THE STUDENT'S BREATH OR PLACING SOMETHING OVER THE STUDENTS MOUTH OR NOSE OR COVERING THE STUDENT'S FACE AND INHIBITING, REDUCING OR HINDERING THE STUDENT'S ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE.

THE MAIN REASON I'M KEEPING MY COMMENTS FOCUS ON THOSE THREE ITEMS IS BECAUSE REQUIRING A STUDENT TO WORRY FACIAL COVERING OR MASK WOULD BE IN DIRECT VIOLATION OF THE 2021-22 STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT.

I KNOW THAT THE DISTRICT REQUIRES ALL STUDENTS, STAFF AND TEACHERS TO WEAR A MASK DURING THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR.

BUT AT THE END OF THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR, THE MISD SCHOOL BOARD UNIONIZE UNANIMOUSLY VOTED TO DROP THE MASK WEARING POLICY.

THERE IS NO SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE THAT MASKS CONTROL THE SPREAD OF THE COVID-19 VIRUS AT SCHOOLS. HOWEVER, THE MASK DOES HINDER THE ABILITY OF STUDENTS, TEACHERS AND STAFF TO COMMUNICATE. THE MASK ALSO REDUCES A PERSON'S ABILITY TO GET FRESH AIR INTO THEIR LUNGS AND CAUSES THAT MASK WHERE TO BREATHE IN THEIR OWN CARBON DIOXIDE OVER AND OVER AGAIN, WHICH MAY CAUSE A PERSON TO HAVE A LOWER OXYGEN LEVEL.

STUDENTS ALSO WATCH THEIR TEACHERS FOR FACIAL EXPRESSIONS TO KNOW THAT THEY ARE DOING THINGS CORRECTLY, ALSO TO OBTAIN A BETTER EDUCATION, IT IS KEY TO HAVE GOOD COMMUNICATION BETWEEN STUDENTS AND TEACHERS.

WEARING A MASK CAN HINDER GOOD COMMUNICATION.

I HOPE THE SCHOOL BOARD WILL TAKE MY COMMENTS INTO CONSIDERATION AND NOT HAVE ANOTHER MASK MANDATE FOR THIS SCHOOL YEAR.

THANK YOU, SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS FOR LISTENING TO MY COMMENTS.

[01:10:01]

THANK YOU, MISS L. OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS MINDY S.

DID I SAY THAT, RIGHT? YEAH. THANK YOU. I'M SO SORRY.

GOOD EVENING, DR. CANTU AND DISTINGUISHED MEMBERS OF THE BOARD.

WELCOME TO OUR TWO NEWEST MEMBERS, MS. FERRAR AND MR. SNEED. I'M HERE TO SPEAK TO YOU TONIGHT ON BEHALF OF THE PARENTS AND THE COMMUNITY, THE STUDENTS HERE IN MANSFIELD.

AS YOU ALL KNOW, I AM THE CHAIRWOMAN OF WHAT IS NOW KNOWN AS VOICES FOR MANSFIELD, AND I ALSO SERVE ON THE BOARD FOR THE TARRANT COUNTY CHAPTER OF MOMS FOR LIBERTY.

THE CONCERNS THAT I'M BRINGING FORTH TONIGHT, IT REALLY RELATES TO THE INSTRUCTION HERE IN THE DISTRICT. WE ARE AWARE THAT THERE WAS A SURVEY THAT WAS SENT OUT TO STUDENTS IN NOVEMBER OF 2020.

I KNOW THAT IT WAS SENT TO FIFTH THROUGH 12TH GRADE STUDENTS, AND MY STUDENT, IN FACT, RECEIVED ONE, BUT DIDN'T CARE TO ANSWER IT.

HE DIDN'T EVEN OPEN IT.

I DID NOTICE, THOUGH, WHEN I WENT BACK AND LOOKED AT IT, THAT HE WAS UNABLE TO FORWARD THAT EMAIL TO MY ACCOUNT AND TO MY HUSBAND'S ACCOUNT.

I THOUGHT THAT WAS REALLY STRANGE BECAUSE HE'S BEEN ABLE TO FORWARD OTHER EMAILS.

SO THAT SEEMS SUSPICIOUS, AND I AM AWARE THAT ON THAT SURVEY, IT WAS ONE THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED AND FORTY SIX STUDENT RESPONSES THAT YOU RECEIVED THAT'S LISTED IN YOUR MISD EQUITY AUDIT, WHICH IS AVAILABLE ON THE MISD WEBSITE.

YES, I'VE READ ALL 21 PAGES.

I HAVE SEVERAL TALKING POINTS, BUT IT WOULD TAKE ME A LOT LONGER THAN THREE MINUTES.

I'M HERE TO SPEAK TO YOU ON BEHALF OF THE PARENTS IN THE COMMUNITY.

YOU WANTED TO KNOW, IT SEEMS LIKE ON THIS SURVEY, WHAT I'VE HEARD BACK FROM THE PARENTS WHOSE STUDENTS DID READ THE QUESTIONS, HOW MUCH MONEY THE STUDENTS PARENTS MADE, AS WELL AS THE SEXUAL ORIENTATION OF THE STUDENTS.

WE DO NOT FEEL LIKE THAT IS YOUR BUSINESS.

THE KIDS WERE ALSO ASKED TO IDENTIFY THEMSELVES BY THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN.

WE DON'T REALLY FEEL THAT'S NECESSARY TODAY, AND WE DON'T FEEL THAT SUPPORTS THE IDEA OF EMBRACING DIVERSITY IN OUR COMMUNITY.

THE EMAIL WAS SENT FROM THE DEI DIRECTOR'S EMAIL ACCOUNT TO THE STUDENTS EMAIL ACCOUNTS, UNBEKNOWNST TO MOST OF THE PARENTS HERE IN THE DISTRICT.

BUT AS WE'VE ALL GOTTEN TOGETHER AND TALKED, THANK GOODNESS FOR THE COVID SHUTDOWNS, BECAUSE FOR THOSE WHO THEIR STUDENTS WERE GOING TO SCHOOL AT HOME, THAT'S HOW A LOT OF PARENTS BECAME AWARE, AND THAT'S HOW THE CONVERSATION STARTED AMONG US IN THE COMMUNITY.

IN THE AUDIT, LET'S SEE, IN THE INTRO ON PAGE TWO, IT STATES THAT THE AUDIT CONSIDERS THE DISTRICT AS A WHOLE RATHER THAN AS A COLLECTION OF SEPARATE DISCRETE PARTS.

IF IT WAS REALLY CONSIDERING THE DISTRICT AS A WHOLE, WOULDN'T YOU HAVE SURVEYED MORE THAN ONE THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED AND FORTY SIX STUDENTS CONSIDERING IN THE AUDIT.

IT IS ALSO LISTED THAT THERE ARE, AT THE TIME OF THE AUDIT, THIRTY FIVE THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED STUDENTS THAT WASN'T DONE, AND AGAIN, WE ONLY HAVE A FOUR PERCENT SAMPLING OF STUDENTS IN OUR DISTRICT THAT ARE THAT'S THREE MINUTES.

OK. SO YOU HAVE A FOUR PERCENT SAMPLING.

THAT DOES NOT THAT'S NOT PROPER DATA COLLECTION AND THAT DOES NOT REPRESENT THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS IN THE DISTRICT.

WE ALSO HAVE HERE DEMOGRAPHICS, AND YOU'VE LISTED THEM ON YOUR WEBSITE.

SO AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDENTS ARE THE MAJORITY HERE.

MA'AM, WE LIMIT OUR SPEAKERS TO THREE MINUTES.

SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

OK, PLEASE FOLLOW OUR FACEBOOK PAGE VOICES FOR MANSFIELD.

YOU CAN LIKE, FOLLOW AND SHARE IT, AND OUR WEBSITE IS VOICESFORMANSFIELD.COM.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS BRANDON MANNING.

I WAS GOING TO GO WITH W, BUT WE'LL TAKE AN M.

I THOUGHT IT WAS I THOUGHT IT WAS NICE.

SO GOOD AFTERNOON, EVERYONE.

GOOD EVENING, I GUESS, NOW.

I APPRECIATE YOU ALL'S TIME AND ENERGY.

MY MOTHER WAS ON THE SCHOOL BOARD IN DE KALB COUNTY, AND METRO AREA COUNTY FOR ATLANTA, AND SO I KNOW THESE NIGHTS CAN BE LONG.

I APPRECIATE THE TEACHERS IN THE ROOM.

I'M A FORMER SECONDARY ED TEACHER.

NINTH GRADE ENGLISH. I'M CURRENTLY A PROFESSOR AT TCU WHERE WE WEAR MASKS INSIDE, AND I WANT TO SPEAK BRIEFLY ABOUT JUST THE IMPORTANCE OF WEARING MASKS AND MOVING FORWARD WITH THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, WITH THE SCHOOL YEAR.

I UNFORTUNATELY, I GUESS I'M ONE OF THE LUCKY FEW WHO WAS A BREAKTHROUGH CASE.

I WAS FULLY VACCINATED EARLY APRIL, AND IN JULY, GOT COVID AND MY DAUGHTER, MY EIGHT

[01:15:09]

YEAR OLD DAUGHTER, WHO WAS UNABLE TO GET THE VACCINE, ALSO GOT COVID, AND I WAS VERY CONCERNED FOR HER. FORTUNATELY, SHE PULLED THROUGH.

NO MAJOR ISSUES.

BUT AT THE TIME, I RECOGNIZED HOW HARD IT WOULD HAVE BEEN FOR ME AS AN EDUCATOR TO BE IN THE CLASSROOM WITH THE BRAIN FOG AND AILMENTS AS I HAD THEN.

I WAS REMINDED OF HOW DIFFICULT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN AS A STUDENT TO TRY AND CARRY ON ANY SEMBLANCE OF LEARNING DURING THAT PROCESS.

AND BECAUSE I'VE GOT THREE STUDENTS THAT ARE IN MISD, TWO OF WHICH ARE AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL, AND ONE OF WHICH IS A JUNIOR AND BEING HEAVILY RECRUITED RIGHT NOW, I'M ALSO THINKING ABOUT WHAT STUDENT ATHLETES, LIKE I REMEMBER LAST YEAR, STUDENTS ON PINS AND NEEDLES, TRYING TO FINISH A SCHOOL YEAR FOR US, COLLECTIVELY, WANTING OUR STUDENTS TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY HAD PROMS AND COULD GO TO GRADUATION AND THAT IT WASN'T THE SPRING BEFORE THAT, AND I AM DEEPLY APPRECIATIVE OF THE WAY THAT WE BEGAN LAST YEAR WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF CARE AND PRECAUTION, AND THAT'S JUST NOT WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW, GIVEN THAT WE'RE YOU KNOW, WE'VE STARTED AT A LITTLE BIT OF A LATER DATE.

WE CAN SEE TRENDS THAT HAVE HAPPENED IN OTHER CITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY, ESPECIALLY IN THE SOUTH, WHERE VACCINATION RATES ARE LOWER.

I WANT OUR STUDENTS IN CLASS.

I WAS AT HOME LAST YEAR TEACHING WHEN MY KIDS WERE AT HOME, AND IT WAS NOT FUN.

IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT.

I PERSONALLY FEEL LIKE IF THEY CAN BE, THAT THEY SHOULD BE IN THE CLASS.

BUT I WANT THEM TO BE ABLE TO BE THERE.

I WANT THEM TO BE ABLE TO LEARN.

I DON'T WANT ANYBODY TO MISS A PROM, A HOMECOMING, A GRADUATION, AND WE KNOW THAT STUDENTS ROUTINELY GO TO SCHOOL SICK.

PARENTS HAVE LIMITED OPTIONS, AND SO WE KNOW THAT IT WILL BE IN THE CLASSROOM.

I WOULD JUST ASK FOR YOU ALL AT THIS MOMENT TO CONSIDER HAVING STUDENTS WEAR MASKS THROUGHOUT THE DISTRICT. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS ALMA MARTINEZ.

GOOD EVENING, DR.

CANTU AND BOARD MEMBERS, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALLOWING ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK THIS EVENING. FIRST AND FOREMOST, ON BEHALF OF THE COMMUNITY, I WOULD LIKE TO THANK CATHY MARSH, DIRECTOR OF HEALTH SERVICES, FOR HER SERVICE TO MISD, AND ON THE TOPIC RELATED TO HEALTH, I WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS THE CURRENT STATE OF MASK REQUIREMENTS IN SCHOOLS, SPECIFICALLY WITH CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 12.

I'M SURE YOU ARE AWARE ON AUGUST 11, ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY FIVE COOK CHILDREN'S DOCTORS SIGNED A LETTER URGING NORTH TEXAS SCHOOLS TO IMPLEMENT MASK MANDATES AHEAD OF THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. AT THAT TIME, GOVERNOR ABBOTT HAD A BAN ON MASK MANDATES ON SCHOOLS. AS OF LAST THURSDAY, THE TEXAS SUPREME COURT DENIED THE GOVERNOR'S BAN, AND IN THAT TIME, SEVERAL SCHOOLS WOULD HAVE TO SHUT DOWN DUE TO COUNTLESS CASES OF COVID, NO TEACHERS TO TEACH, TO MANY STUDENTS IN THE CLASS WITH COVID.

IN ADDITION, OUR NEIGHBORS AT FORT WORTH ISD HAD OVER A THOUSAND CASES OF COVID AS OF FRIDAY, SINCE THEY THEMSELVES COULD NOT UPHOLD THE MASK MANDATE FOR LEGAL REASONS UNTIL NEXT MONTH'S COURT HEARING.

THERE HAVE BEEN COUNTLESS REPORTS OF NO PEDIATRIC ICU BEDS AVAILABLE IN OUR REGION AS COVID CASES INCREASE WITH SCHOOLS [INAUDIBLE] ORDER WITH SCHOOLS AND NO MASK MANDATES TO SLOW DOWN THE SPREAD. IN SHORT, NOW THAT THE MASK MANDATE HAS BEEN PLACED IN THE HANDS OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, I AM PLEADING ON BEHALF OF PARENTS THAT ARE CONCERNED FOR THEIR CHILDREN'S SAFETY, FOR YOU TO PLEASE REVISE AND REQUIRE MUST SPECIFICALLY FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 12. THERE ARE RECENT STUDIES THAT SHOW THAT MASKS ARE ACTUALLY EFFECTIVE . A TEXAS TECH STUDY INDICATES THAT ONE PERSON CARRYING COVID COULD, IN FACT, TWO POINT FIVE PEOPLE, ONE PERSON CARRYING THE DELTA VARIANT CAN INFECT SIX PEOPLE.

HOWEVER, ONE MASKED COVID CASE CAN ONLY INFECT ZERO POINT FIVE.

MASKS DO WORK.

THEY SLOW THE SPREAD.

I UNDERSTAND, YOU KNOW, IT'S NOT THE MOST COMFORTABLE THING FOR SOME.

BUT AS A MOTHER OF A SEVEN YEAR OLD AND A THREE YEAR OLD AT HOME, I WEAR MY MASK IN PUBLIC ALL THE TIME.

I AM VACCINATED AND I CONTINUE TO WEAR MY MASK.

MY SEVEN YEAR OLD AND MY THREE YEAR OLD DO THE SAME REGARDLESS OF WHERE WE GO.

IF WE'RE GOING ON A TARGET RUN, IF YOU KNOW, MY SEVEN YEAR OLD IS IN SCHOOL, THEY WEAR AND THEY DON'T COMPLAIN.

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MESSAGE WE'RE GIVING TO OUR CHILDREN, AND AT THIS TIME, I'M ASKING THAT YOU PLEASE AGAIN, CONSIDER UPHOLDING A MASK MANDATE.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS [INAUDIBLE].

[01:20:04]

[INAUDIBLE], YOU EVEN PUT IT OUT THERE FOR ME TO LIKE READ IT THE RIGHT WAY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. MY NAME IS [INAUDIBLE].

I'M A MOTHER OF SIX CHILDREN WHICH ATTEND MISD SCHOOLS WITH AT LEAST ONE AT EVERY LEVEL.

I'M REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT SOME OF THE APPROVED CURRICULUM, AND I WANTED TO SHARE SOME INFORMATION WITH YOU. WE'RE NOT AGAINST TEACHING ABOUT SLAVERY.

WE ARE AGAINST CLAIMING SLAVERY IS CENTRAL TO THE AMERICAN FOUNDING BECAUSE IT'S FACTUALLY INACCURATE BY ANY ECONOMIC ACCOUNTING, PHILOSOPHICAL OR HISTORICAL STANDARD.

IT IS ALSO CONTRADICTORY TO THE MANY LAWS AND WRITINGS AS SOON FOLLOWED THE FOUNDING, PURSUANT TO ENDING THE INSTITUTION OF SLAVERY AT THE FEDERAL AND ESPECIALLY THE STATE LEVEL. WE ARE NOT AGAINST DIVERSITY.

WE ARE AGAINST OTHERS BEING CALLED NOT DIVERSE OR DESIRABLE ENOUGH BY METRICS OUT OF THEIR CONTROL ON ONE HAND, AND THEN ON THE OTHER, BEING TOLD DIVERSITY IS STRENGTH.

WE WANT PEOPLE TO BE ABLE TO BRING FACTS TO THE TABLE AND SHARE IDEAS.

BUT WHEN YOU FRAME ONE PERSON BASED UPON THEIR GROUP IDENTITY AS UNQUESTIONABLE, YOU'RE ENTERING A DARK PATH THAT WILL NOT ONLY OPEN ONE GROUP TO BE ALLOWED TO WITHOUT MERCY ABUSE. AFTER ALL, POWER CORRUPTS AND ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY.

BUT RESENTMENT AND ANGER FROM THE OTHER, WHICH WILL FULLY DIVIDE THEM.

ANGER WILL FESTER AS AN INFECTION CONSTANTLY BEING RIPPED OPEN AND SOILED UPON AS IT CONSUMES THE HOST AND SPREADS.

OUR CHILDREN'S COUNSELORS ALWAYS TAUGHT US TO END A CHAIN OF ABUSE OF ANOTHER BECAUSE ABUSE INFLICTED UPON OURSELVES, THE IDEAS UNDERGIRDING DEI WILL NOT END, AND IN FACT, ONLY FURTHER SUCH A CHAIN OF ABUSE.

TO DISMISS EVERYTHING AS AN INTERNAL BIAS OR FRAGILITY, BECAUSE IT DOESN'T SUIT A PARTICULAR IDEOLOGY WILL LEAVE THE OTHER LEFT WITH NO OPTION BUT THE INTOXICATING, PRIMITIVE DRUG OF RETURNING PAIN AND KIND AND LEAD TO TRIBALISM AND DESTRUCTION.

WE ARE NOT AGAINST EQUITY.

ALL INDIVIDUALS SHOULD BE TREATED FAIRLY, AND FAIRNESS DOES NOT MEAN TREATING A GROUP AS INFERIOR, NOR IS IT ANOTHER GROUP NEEDING TO BE KNOCKED DOWN A PEG OR TWO DUE TO IMMUTABLE CHARACTERISTICS.

THE FRAMEWORKS TO UNDERGIRD THE IDEOLOGY IN QUESTION INSIST ON ANY INEQUALITY TO BE TREATED AS UNFAIR. INEQUITIES WITHOUT QUESTION OR CRITICISM, AS ANY CRITICISM OF, ACCORDING TO THE DOCTRINE, ONLY PROVES THE POINT OF THE DOCTRINE BEING TRUE, WHICH IS DIRECTLY AT WAR WITH THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD, EMPIRICISM, LOGIC AND REASON, ALL OF WHICH ARE THE TOOLS TO HELP US COMPREHEND REALITY.

WE ARE NOT AGAINST INCLUSION.

PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE EXCLUDED UNDER THE IDEA THAT ANYONE HAS THE ABILITY OR RIGHT TO AGGRESS AGAINST ANOTHER.

WE ARE, IN FACT, AGAINST EXCLUDING OTHERS BY IMMUTABLE CHARACTERISTICS, AND AS WE HAVE SEEN TIME AND TIME AGAIN, INCLUSION MERELY MEANS THE SAME IDEAS TRUMPETED BY THOSE WHO HAVE IMMUTABLE GNOSTICISM, INHERENT SECRET AND IMPROVABLE, NOR IRREFUTABLE KNOWLEDGE THAT IS UNQUESTIONABLE AND FUNCTION UNDER A FRAMEWORK OF THE SAME.

WE WISH TO INCLUDE A WHOLE BUFFET OF IDEAS TO CHILDREN OVER THE COURSE OF THEIR SCHOOL OF OUT OF THE COURSE OF THEIR TIME IN SCHOOL, AS IS HEALTHY TO THEM, AND WHEN THE FRAMING OF ANY IDEA IS IMPROPERLY IS INSTEAD TREATED AS UNQUESTIONABLE AND IMMUTABLE GNOSTICISM AS DEEMED ALLOWABLE BY ITS PURVEYORS, PLANNING THE MOST IRRATIONAL AND PRIMITIVE OF HUMAN DESIRES, YOU'RE ENGAGING IN BRAINWASHING AND PROPAGANDA RATHER THAN EDUCATION AND LEARNING.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, MS. [INAUDIBLE].

[APPLAUSE] OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS SUSAN SMITH.

GOOD EVENING, THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME, AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION.

I WANTED TO SPEAK ON THE TEACHER RESIGNATIONS.

I'VE KIND OF BEEN PAYING ATTENTION, AT LEAST SINCE MAY, TO THE TURNOVER AT MISD AND I CAN'T HELP BUT NOTICE THAT A LOT OF THE TEACHER RESIGNATIONS LATELY SEEM TO BE CITING PERSONAL OR FAMILY HEALTH REASONS AS A REASON FOR RESIGNING SPECIFICALLY, MISD'S DIRECTOR OF HEALTH SERVICES, WHOSE RESIGNATION WILL BE EFFECTIVE IN ABOUT THREE DAYS.

WE STARTED THE PANDEMIC WITH A TEACHER SHORTAGE.

THAT'S NO NEWS TO ANYBODY IN TEXAS WHO PAYS ATTENTION TO OUR SCHOOLS.

THE SHORTAGE IS GETTING WORSE, AND WE NEED TO DO WHAT WE CAN TO PROTECT OUR TEACHERS AND PROTECT OUR KIDS. THERE ARE A LOT OF TEACHERS THAT DON'T FEEL PROTECTED BY THE STATE, BY THEIR LOCAL BOARDS. AND A MASK MANDATE WOULD GO A LONG WAYS TO TELLING TEACHERS THAT WE VALUE THEIR LIVES, WE VALUE THEIR SERVICE, AND, YOU KNOW, IT WILL HAVE THE GOOD IDEA OF PROTECTING OUR KIDS.

[01:25:02]

MY BROTHER IS A PHYSICIAN.

MY SISTER IN LAW IS A PHYSICIAN.

THEY'RE IN THE OR FOR UP TO 12 HOURS IN ONE DAY.

DOUBLE MASKING, WEARING FULL PPE.

THEY STILL HAVE ALL THEIR BRAIN CELLS.

THEY'RE STILL ALIVE.

THEY'RE FINE. MASKS WORK.

MY NEIGHBOR, AN EMT, HE USED TO AVERAGE ONE TRACHEOTOMY, WHICH IS THE PROCEDURE THAT PRECEDES GOING ON A VENTILATOR.

HE USED TO AVERAGE ONE TRACHEOTOMY ABOUT A WEEK.

LAST WEEK HE DID FIVE.

TODAY HE DID FOUR TRACHEOTOMIES.

ALL FOUR PEOPLE IN MANSFIELD GOING ON A VENTILATOR.

SO THE PANDEMIC IS GETTING WORSE.

OUR PROTECTIONS THAT WE HAD IN PLACE LAST YEAR ARE BEING ROLLED BACK.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE US TAKE OUR PROTECTIONS FORWARD.

LET'S CARRY WHAT WE WERE DOING LAST YEAR.

WE'RE BETTER AT IT NOW.

WE HAVE ONE YEAR UNDER OUR BELT.

LET'S CARRY THOSE FORWARD.

ONE MORE YEAR AND KICK COVID IN THE [EXPLETIVE].

OK, LET'S GET IT DONE.

LET'S PROTECT OUR TEACHERS.

PROTECT OUR KIDS. PLEASE MANDATE MASKS.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS MIKE MCGOWAN . GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS MIKE MCGOWAN.

I LIVE IN THE GRAND PRAIRIE MANSFIELD AREA, AND MY DAUGHTER IS A STUDENT AT MISD SCHOOLS AND HAS BEEN SINCE SHE WAS IN KINDERGARTEN.

I ACTUALLY SPOKE TO YOU GUYS LAST YEAR ON THE MASKS.

I'M NOT GOING TO TALK ABOUT THAT TONIGHT.

YOU'VE ALREADY MADE YOUR DECISION.

YOU'VE MADE THE RIGHT DECISION.

BY THE WAY, REGARDLESS OF WHAT SOME PEOPLE SAY, THEY DON'T WORK.

NEVER HAVE. NEVER WILL.

BUT I'M HERE TO TALK ABOUT DEI AND CRT, WHICH CRT HAS BEEN OUTLAWED BY OUR GOVERNOR.

BUT YOU GUYS HAVE KIND OF SLIPPED IT IN UNDER THE DEI.

WE JUST HAD 21 PAGES OF SOME SORT OF A REPORT THAT WAS DONE THAT THE TAXPAYERS GOT TO PAY FOR. OK, I WANT TO BRING A COUPLE OF THINGS OF THIS TO LIGHT, AND THEN I WANT TO REFERENCE SOME OF THE TEACHERS AND SOME OF THE PEOPLE THAT TALKED TONIGHT AND SOME OF THE THINGS THAT THEY BROUGHT UP AS FAR AS THE WAY OUR STUDENTS ARE LEARNING AND THE PERCENTAGES.

ON PAGE NINE AT THE VERY BOTTOM AND THE RIGHT HAND CORNER, AND I'M SURE MOST OF YOU HAVE SEEN THIS. IT SAYS THE RICHNESS AND DIVERSITY OF MANSFIELD ISD COMMUNITY IS ITS GREATEST STRENGTH. THAT'S REPORT FINDINGS.

SO I'D LIKE SOMEONE TO ANSWER ME A QUESTION.

WHY ARE WE SPENDING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS OF TAXPAYERS AND SCHOOL MONEY FOR A PROGRAM THAT APPARENTLY IS NOT NEEDED? IT'S NOT NEEDED. OK, WE'RE PAYING OUR DIRECTOR OVER THIS DEI ADVISORY COUNCIL OVER 100 GRAND A YEAR FOR WHAT? WHAT IS SHE DOING BESIDES DIVIDING CHILDREN? OK, ON PAGE I THINK IT'S 16, I LOST IT.

WHERE THEY TALK ABOUT THE GIFTED AND TALENTED PROGRAM, I LOST IT WHEN I PULLED MY PAPER OUT. I'LL FIND IT.

OH, YEAH. HERE'S PROGRAMS FOR SPED, AND GT IS TO INCREASE THE IDENTIFICATION OF STUDENTS OF COLOR AND POVERTY FOR GIFTED AND TALENTED SERVICES AND TO DECREASE THE PERCENTAGE OF MALES IN THE PROGRAM.

CAN SOMEONE ANSWER TO ME WHY? WHAT DOES IT HAVE TO DO, WHAT COLOR YOU ARE OR WHAT SEX YOU ARE? WE'RE NEVER GOING TO BE EQUAL AS PEOPLE, AND IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU'RE GREEN, YELLOW, RED, BLUE OR WHITE.

THERE'S NEVER GOING TO BE ABSOLUTE EQUALITY IN PEOPLE BECAUSE THERE ARE GOING TO BE PEOPLE THAT WILL RISE ABOVE AND PEOPLE THAT ARE DON'T.

ONE THING THAT WE'RE NOT DOING, MISD IS NOT DOING, YOU'RE NOT LEANING ON YOUR COMMUNITY.

DALLAS, JUST TWO DAYS AGO, THEY HAD A BREAKFAST WITH DADS AND THERE WAS A LOT OF STUDENTS THAT DIDN'T HAVE DADS. SO THEY ASKED FOR HELP.

THEY NEEDED 50 VOLUNTEERS, 600 SHOWED UP.

SO INSTEAD OF PAYING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS, WASTING MONEY, DIVIDING OUR STUDENTS, TEACHING OUR KIDS TO DISLIKE EACH OTHER--WE'VE GIVEN YOU SOME EXTRA TIME, BUT THANK YOU FOR ABIDING BY THE RULES.

YOU'RE CONCERNED, RIGHT? THANK YOU.

MM HMM, I SEE THAT.

YOU'RE ALSO NOT BEING TRANSPARENT; YOU KEEP HIDING STUFF ON YOUR WEB PAGE.

OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS JOANNA CARDOZA.

[01:30:17]

GOOD EVENING. I JUST FIND IT A LITTLE INTERESTING THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE ALLOWED TO GO OVER THE THREE MINUTES WHEN I WAS NOT ALLOWED TO LAST TIME.

I AM HERE TONIGHT TO SPEAK IN REGARDS TO THE RESIGNATION OF THE DIRECTOR OF HEALTH SERVICES. I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED TO LOSE VITAL LEADERSHIP AND EXPERIENCE IN THE MIDDLE OF A WORSENING PANDEMIC IN OUR COMMUNITY.

I AM CONCERNED THAT WE HAVE NOT IMPLEMENTED A MASK MANDATE WHILE OUR HOSPITALS ARE FULL OF COVID 19 PATIENTS.

YOUNGER PATIENTS MAKE UP THE MAJORITY OF THOSE IN HOSPITALS.

LOCAL MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS ARE SOUNDING THE ALARM.

OUR COMMUNITY POSITIVITY RATE IS IN THE 20S.

MASKS ARE, AND I REPEAT, NOT ABOUT MAKING A POLITICAL STATEMENT OR TAKING AWAY PEOPLE'S RIGHTS. MASKS ARE ABOUT THE HEALTH OF OUR COMMUNITY, PROTECTING THE MOST VULNERABLE IN OUR COMMUNITY, OUR CHILDREN.

IT'S ABOUT SLOWING THE SPREAD SO WE CAN KEEP OUR SCHOOLS OPEN, IMPROPERLY STAFFED.

WE HAVE BARELY BEEN BACK TO SCHOOL FOR ONE WEEK, AND I HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED TWO COVID-19 LETTERS NOTIFYING ME OF CASES IN MY CHILD'S SCHOOL.

I HAVE HAD TO CALL MY CHILD'S SCHOOL ABOUT PACKED CAFETERIA WITHOUT THE OVERFLOW AREA BEING OPEN TO THE CHILDREN, AND THE REASON WHY THIS CAME UP IS BECAUSE MY CHILD WAS NOT EATING DURING HIS LUNCH PERIOD, BECAUSE HE DID NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE, BECAUSE THEY WERE SO PACKED IN THAT CAFETERIA.

I HAVE TAKEN ALL THE PRECAUTIONS I CAN AS A PARENT TO TAKE PROTECT MY CHILD.

NOW, I NEED YOU AS BOARD MEMBERS TO DO YOUR JOBS AND PROTECT MY CHILD.

WE NEED THE PROPER PROTOCOLS THAT WILL PROTECT ALL CHILDREN AND STAFF AT THIS TIME.

PLEASE DO NOT GAMBLE WITH THE LIFE OF MY CHILD AND OTHERS.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I HAVE THREE KIDS IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT I LIVE IN IN SCHOOL DISTRICT.

SO I'M VERY EXCITED TO SERVE IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT NOW.

WITH ME, I HAVE MY BEAUTIFUL NEWLYWED FOR TWO WEEKS, LOU THORNTON.

SHE IS HANGING IN THERE TONIGHT WITH ME, AND I'M DEFINITELY LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING WITH EVERY ONE OF YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

[APPLAUSE] AND I BELIEVE I'M THE LAST ONE.

SO THEY SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST.

[LAUGHTER] I HATE FOLLOWING THAT KIND OF FUN STUFF.

THE REST OF IT DOESN'T SEEM QUITE AS EXCITING.

THIS MOVES US TO NUMBER 11 BUSINESS ITEMS REQUIRING BOARD ACTION.

[11. Business Items Requiring Board Action]

THIS IS CONSIDERATION AND APPROVAL FOR THE FIRST READING OF MISD POLICY UPDATE FFAC LOCAL. MAY I PLEASE RECEIVE A MOTION? SO MOVED. THAT'S THOMAS. MR. CANEDY MR. WRIGHT OR SOMEONE FROM THE POLICY COMMITTEE, DID YOU GUYS WANT TO DISCUSS THEM? SURE, I'D BE HAPPY TO.

THIS IS SIMPLY AN OVERSIGHT.

WE PASSED FFAC OVER THE LAST TWO MONTHS, AND SO IT ACTUALLY WENT THROUGH. BUT THERE WAS ONE SPOT THAT DIDN'T GET ON; IT WAS LEFT OFF, AND SO IT'S STILL A PIECE THAT IS DR.

CHARLES GIVES US ORDER FOR BRINGING TREATMENTS FOR EPINEPHRINE AND ALSO FOR

[01:50:04]

CERTAIN TOPICAL OVER-THE-COUNTER DRUGS, AND WE MISSED THAT WHEN WE WERE PUTTING THIS POLICY TOGETHER. SO WE'RE JUST RIGHTING A WRONG.

ANYONE FROM THE POLICY COMMITTEE WANT TO SPEAK ON THIS.

QUESTIONS? HEARING NONE, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION PLEASE USE SOUND VOTE OF AYE.

AYE. ALL THOSE OPPOSED, PLEASE SAY NO.

THE MOTION PASSES SEVEN ZERO.

THIS MOVES US TO ITEM 12 CONSENT AGENDA.

[12. Consent Agenda]

LET ME REMIND YOU THAT WE VOTE THE CONSENT AGENDA UP OR DOWN UNLESS SOMEONE WANTS TO PULL AN ITEM. IS THERE ANYONE THAT WOULD LIKE TO PULL AN ITEM THIS EVENING? HEARING NONE, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE CONSENT AGENDA PLEASE USE SOUND VOTE OF AYE.

AYE.

ALL THOSE OPPOSED, PLEASE SAY NO.

MOTION PASSES SEVEN ZERO.

THIS LEADS US TO NUMBER 13, THE SUPERINTENDENCE REPORT.

THIS IS FOR DISCUSSION ONLY.

ARE THERE ANY ITEMS ON ITEM 13 THAT ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS WITH THE SUPERINTENDENT

[13. Superintendent's Report]

THIS EVENING? MS. FERRAR ON THE MISD COMMITTEE REPORT, THERE'S A COUPLE OF COMMITTEES LISTED.

DO YOU KNOW WHEN WE CAN EXPECT AN UPDATE FROM EITHER ONE OF THOSE THIRTEEN POINT EIGHT? WHICH TWO COMMITTEES ARE YOU REFERRING TO? I THINK THERE'S A TECHNOLOGY AND DEI.

MR. BROGDEN, DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHEN WE MIGHT BE LOOKING AT A TECHNOLOGY UPDATE? IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE ASKING MS. FERRAR? MS. FERRAR, I CAN TELL YOU THAT TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE MEETS I BELIEVE IT'S TWICE A YEAR WHILE THEY'RE LOOKING THAT UP. I CAN TELL YOU WITH REFERENCE TO DEI, THE COMMITTEE IS STILL WORKING AND DOING THE WORK.

SO WE PROBABLY WON'T SEE ANY SORT OF REPORT COMING OUT OF THAT UNTIL SOMEWHERE MAYBE AROUND THE HOLIDAYS OR FIRST OF THE NEW YEAR.

AS WE'RE CONTINUING TO STRUGGLE OVER HERE, WHAT THEIR A SPECIFIC QUESTION ON THE TECHNOLOGY REPORT? NO, YOU CAN GET BACK TO ME.

I'M SORRY. YOU CAN GET BACK TO ME WHAT YOU HAVE--I THINK SHE'S JUST LOOKING TO KNOW HOW MANY MEETINGS THERE ARE A YEAR WHEN THE NEXT ONE IS EXPECTED.

HI THERE. SO WE CAN DO A SIX MONTH REPORT IF WE NEED TO DO THAT.

I KNOW RECENTLY, I THINK IT WAS IN MAY THAT WE DID A REPORT, AND SO WE CAN DO JUST KIND OF A TOUCH BASIS WHERE WE ARE THEN AND THEN AGAIN A YEAR FROM THERE, IF THAT WORKS FOR YOU. THANK YOU.

YOU'RE WELCOME. IF YOU CAN JUST SEND US AN UPDATE MAYBE ABOUT HOW OFTEN WE'RE DOING IT, WHEN THE NEXT MEETING MIGHT BE.

I THINK THAT'S [INAUDIBLE]. OK, AND WITH THAT LEADS US TO NUMBER 14.

WITH NO OTHER BUSINESS TO DISCUSS, WE WILL ADJOURN AT 9:29 THIS EVENING.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME.

OH, I'M GOING TO TAKE THAT BACK.

[LAUGHTER] WE ARE GOING TO ADJOURN INTO CLOSED SESSION.

DO I NEED TO REPEAT ALL OF THIS STUFF OR ARE WE GOOD.

OK, WE'RE GOING TO ADJOURN BACK INTO CLOSED SESSION AT 9:29

[3. Closed Session (Part 2 of 2)]

, AND WE WILL RECONVENE IN FIVE MINUTES.

ALL RIGHT, WE'LL RECONVENE FROM CLOSED SESSION AT 11:23.

IS THERE ANY ACTION COMING OUT OF CLOSED SESSION? YES. AFTER EXAMINING THE DISTRICT'S ACHIEVEMENTS OF STUDENT OUTCOME GOALS, I MOVE THAT PURSUANT TO SECTION 4.4.1 OF THE SUPERINTENDENT'S CONTRACT THE BOARD APPROVE A SALARY INCREASE OF TWO PERCENT EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY.

CAN I RECEIVE A SECOND? SO MOVED? MR. CANEDY. MS. THOMAS. ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? SEEING NONE, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION PLEASE USE SOUND VOTE OF AYE.

AYE. ALL THOSE OPPOSED, PLEASE SAY NO.

MOTION PASSES SEVEN ZERO.

[01:55:03]

I DID WANT TO MAKE A QUICK COMMENT REGARDING THIS ACTION OUT OF CLOSED SESSION.

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN A PIECE THAT THE BOARD HAS BEEN WORKING ON SINCE FEBRUARY WHEN WE DID DR.

CANTU'S INITIAL EVALUATION, AND SO PART OF THE RAISE THAT WE WERE WANTING TO GIVE WAS TO MATCH TEACHERS. BUT WE DIDN'T WANT TO DO THAT UNTIL WE HAD THE DATA AND THE REPORTS THAT WOULD COME THIS SUMMER, AND SO NOW THAT WE HAVE ALL THOSE DATA, WE CAN TAKE ACTION ON THAT. SO THAT'S WHERE WE'RE AT WITH WHY THIS IS HAPPENING AT THIS TIME.

SO AND WITH THAT, WE WILL ADJOURN AT 11:25 THIS EVENING.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING.
