YES, I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE ELIZABETH CARMODY TO COME TO THE PODIUM TO START US OFF IN OUR RECOGNITIONS. GOOD EVENING, PRESIDENT NEWSOM, DR.

CANTU, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD CABINET AND EXECUTIVE COUNCIL.

I'M VERY EXCITED TO SHARE THAT TONIGHT SCHOOL BOARD RECOGNITION IS GOING TO BE BRINGING BACK THE MANSFIELD ISD HEARTBEAT AWARD AND I KNOW YOU ALL GOT THE MEMO BECAUSE YOU'RE ALL WEARING RED AND IT'S FOR THE HEARTBEAT AWARD MIGHT HAVE TO DO WITH THE HOLIDAYS, BUT I KNOW THAT'S CELEBRATING HEARTBEAT AS WELL.

FOR 18 YEARS, MANSFIELD ISD HEARTBEAT AWARD HAS RECOGNIZED EMPLOYEES WHO DISPLAY HEART IN THEIR LIVES AND INSPIRE OTHERS DISTRICT EMPLOYEES THROUGH THEIR ACTIONS.

THE HEARTBEAT AWARD IS A COVETED AWARD IN MANSFIELD ISD BECAUSE THOSE AWARD WINNERS ARE NOMINATED BY THEIR PEERS.

NOW, SOME OF YOU MAY REMEMBER THAT FOR MANY YEARS WE WOULD GO AROUND AND DO SURPRISE VISITS ON CAMPUSES AND IN DEPARTMENTS, AND IN 2019 WE BEGAN INCLUDING THESE AWARDS IN OUR EMPLOYEE AWARDS BANQUET, THANKS TO OUR NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH THE EDUCATION EMPLOYEES CREDIT UNION OR EECU.

WE ARE RETURNING THE HEARTBEAT RECOGNITION TO BE AWARDED THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR AND

[00:05:02]

WILL BE RECOGNIZING TWO STAFF MEMBERS THIS FALL AND TWO STAFF MEMBERS IN THE SPRING.

TONIGHT WE ALSO HAVE STEPHANIE CURTIS FROM EECU WITH US.

STEPHANIE, IF YOU'LL GIVE A LITTLE WAVE THANKS TO THAT PARTNERSHIP AND STEPHANIE'S SUPPORT, NOT ONLY OUR HEARTBEAT AWARD WINNERS BEING RECOGNIZED AND CELEBRATED BY THEIR PEERS AND IN OUR DISTRICT, BUT THEY RECEIVED A TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS CASH PRIZE FROM EECU, AND THEY BOTH HAVE ASSURED ME THAT THEY HAVE NOT YET SPENT IT, SO THEY MIGHT TAKE YOU OUT TO DINNER LATER.

SO LET'S GET ON TO THE RECOGNITION PORTION.

LAST WEEK, DR. CANTU AND MEMBERS OF EXECUTIVE COUNCIL HEADED OUT TO BOTH SUMMIT HIGH SCHOOL AND HEAR THE DR.

JIM VISHAKHA CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS TO SURPRISE OUR FALL 2021 HEARTBEAT AWARD WINNERS JASON MUTTER, ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL AT SUMMIT HIGH SCHOOL, AND NICK FRAZIER, OPERATIONS MANAGER HERE AT THE CENTER.

I'D LIKE TO INVITE JASON AND NICK UP AT THIS TIME TO JOIN OUR BOARD MEMBERS AND STEPHANIE AND DR. CANTU.

I'D LIKE TO INVITE YOU UP AS WELL FOR SOME PHOTOS AND TO RECOGNIZE YOU.

AND WHILE WE'VE GOT THEM ALL COZY AND CELEBRATING TOGETHER, I'D LIKE TO DIRECT YOUR ATTENTION TO THE SCREENS AND LET'S LEARN A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE HEART THAT BOTH OF THESE INDIVIDUALS CONTRIBUTE TO OUR DISTRICT.

I TELL PEOPLE THIS ALL THE TIME, I'VE BEEN IN EDUCATION FOR TWENTY ONE YEARS AND LITERALLY I'VE NEVER MET ANYBODY WHO WITH A MORE SERVANT HEART THAN JASON.

EVERY DAY HE COMES TO WORK.

IT'S ABOUT THE STAFF AND THE KIDS HERE.

HE SERVES WITH HIS WHOLE HEART.

YOU KNOW, JUST REALLY BLESSED TO WORK FROM HIM.

AND I CONTINUE TO LEARN FROM HIM AS AN EDUCATOR AND HIS PASSION FOR WHAT HE DOES.

SO JUST A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT PEOPLE AROUND HERE HAVE SAID OR WROTE ABOUT COACH MUTT.

COACH MUTT IS A MAN OF INTEGRITY, LOYALTY AND UNWAVERING DEDICATION.

COACH MUTT IS AN INSPIRING LEADER AND DOES LEAD, SO HE LEADS BY EXAMPLE AND SERVANT LEADERSHIP. SO CONGRATULATIONS.

ISN'T ABOUT ME, IT'S ABOUT SUMMIT HIGH SCHOOL AND SUMMIT LOVE AND WHAT WE DO EVERY SINGLE DAY, AND IT JUST TAKES SOMEONE.

SOMETIMES IT TAKES ALL OF US TO HAVE THAT HEART FOR OUR STUDENTS AND HAVE THAT HEART FOR ONE ANOTHER'S. MICK IS EVERYTHING HERE AT THE CENTER, THIS PLACE WILL NOT BE THE PLACE IT IS, AND WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DO AS MANY EVENTS AS WE DO.

IF IT WASN'T FOR NICK AND THE CREW, HE LOVES EVERYBODY, ESPECIALLY OUR KIDS, YOU KNOW, HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE THAT WHEN THEY COME IN, THEY HAVE THE BEST EXPERIENCE.

THIS PLACE IS NOBODY WITHOUT NICK.

PEOPLE JUST REALLY RECOGNIZE HOW MUCH YOU ARE NOT ONLY JUST THE HEART OF THE CENTER, BUT THE HEART OF MANSFIELD ISD, SOMEONE ELSE SAID, EVEN IN THE MIDST OF A CRISIS DURING THE REUNIFICATION PROCESS ON OCTOBER SIX, NICK HELPED GET THE CENTER SET UP FOR THE WORKERS, THE STUDENTS WHO WOULD BE ARRIVING AND THE PARENTS AND EVEN DURING THE STRESSFUL TIME NICK WAS STILL [INAUDIBLE].

I KNOW WHAT I DO AND I KNOW WHAT I DO AT BEST, BUT I DID NOT KNOW I AFFECTED PEOPLE THAT WAY. AND IT'S REALLY HEARTWARMING TO KNOW THAT THEY DO SEE THAT.

SO OUR ROLE IS WE LIKE TO COME AND CELEBRATE THE WINNERS, AND WE LIKE TO GIVE TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS CASH JUST TO SHOW AND RECOGNIZE HOW MUCH WE APPRECIATE.

I THINK THIS WILL BRING US CLOSER TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY AND JUST SHOWING THAT WE SUPPORT, YOU KNOW, THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS AND EVERYTHING THAT THEY DO WITH THE CHILDREN AND THE DISTRICTS EVERY DAY.

LET'S GIVE THEM ONE MORE ROUND OF APPLAUSE.

[APPLAUSE] AND THAT CONCLUDES THIS EVENING'S RECOGNITION.

ALL RIGHTY. THIS LEADS US TO SEVEN, NUMBER SEVEN, THIS INSTRUCTIONAL FOCUS, DR.

[7. Instructional Focus]

CANTU. YES, I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE BRANDON JOHNSON UP TO THE FRONT.

HE'S ALMOST THERE TO SHARE SOME INFORMATION WITH US ABOUT OUR DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN FOR 21-22.

GOOD EVENING, DR. CANTU, PRESENT NEWSOM AND MEMBERS OF THE BOARD.

[00:10:02]

I AM HERE TO PROVIDE THE BACKGROUND FOR CONSENT AGENDA ITEM 12.4.

THE DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT IMPROVEMENT PLAN.

AND SO TO GET US STARTED FOR THE DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN FOR TWENTY TWENTY TWENTY ONE TWENTY TWENTY TWO SCHOOL YEAR POLICY DIRECTS THAT THE BOARD SHALL REVIEW AND REVISE AND APPROVE THE DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT OBJECTIVES EACH YEAR.

AND SO FROM THE THE OVERALL DEPARTMENTS TO THE DISTRICT LEVEL, AS WELL AS TO THE CAMPUS LEVEL. ALL OF THOSE YOU WILL SEE IN YOUR BOARD PACKET.

TO GET STARTED. I WANT TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF AN OVERVIEW OF OUR DEIC GROUP.

THIS IS A GROUP OF CAMPUS PROFESSIONALS, PARENTS, BUSINESS REPRESENTATIVES AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS. AND WHAT THEY DO IS THEY COME TOGETHER AND THEY REVIEW THE THE DEPARTMENT'S PLAN ON THE PAGES AND THEY PROVIDE FEEDBACK AND THE DEPARTMENTS GO THROUGH THE PROCESS OF REVISION. AND SO IT'S WHAT'S BEEN REALLY COOL THIS YEAR IS WE WERE ABLE TO PROVIDE THIS GROUP AN OPPORTUNITY TO MEET BACK IN PERSON FOR A CHANGE.

LAST YEAR, WHEN WE SHOWED YOU THIS SLIDE, IT WAS A PICTURE FROM THE THE PREVIOUS SCHOOL YEAR. AND SO IT LOOKED A LITTLE DIFFERENT IN THE PAST.

WHAT WE'VE DONE IS WE'VE BROUGHT THE GROUP TOGETHER FOR AN ENTIRE DAY TO GO THROUGH THE REVIEW AND REVISION PROCESS, AND THAT HAPPENED OVER THE COURSE OF THE COURSE OF A COUPLE OF MEETINGS. AND SO THEY PROVIDE VALUABLE FEEDBACK.

AND IF ANYBODY IS HERE TODAY OR IF YOU'RE WATCHING AT HOME, WE REALLY APPRECIATE ALL OF THE TIME AND ENERGY THAT YOU PUT INTO HELPING US WITH THIS PROCESS.

SO TO KIND OF GIVE YOU AN OVERVIEW OF HOW WE OPERATE FROM A DISTRICT LEVEL FOR THOSE WHO ARE AT HOME AND FOR NEW MEMBERS, WE HAVE OUR PROCESS WHERE FROM A DISTRICT STANDPOINT IN THE BLUE, WE HAVE OUR MISSION VISION VALUES, THE GUIDANCE, STATEMENTS AND KEY STRATEGIC MEASURES. THIS IS WHAT GUIDES AND GOVERNS US AS A DISTRICT, AND WE HAVE THE SAME PROCESS IN GREEN THAT IS LAID OUT FOR OUR CAMPUSES.

AND THEN WE HAVE A SAME PROCESS THAT IS LAID OUT FOR OUR DISTRICT DEPARTMENTS.

SO EVERYBODY WORKS IN CONJUNCTION ALIGN TO THE BLUE DISTRICT VISION OF 2020 30, AND THEN WE MONITOR THAT PROCESS THROUGH CADENCE OF ACCOUNTABILITY, AND WE PROVIDE FEEDBACK TO DEPARTMENTS AND CAMPUSES THERE BY REPORTING ANNUALLY REGULARLY.

SO WITH ALIGNMENT OF THE SYSTEM, WE START WITH VISION 2030, AND FROM THERE WE EVERYTHING HAS TO BE GUIDED THROUGH THE GUIDING STATEMENTS AND OUR MISSION, VISION AND VALUES.

AND WHAT WE HAVE EACH DEPARTMENT DO IS WE GO THROUGH A ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS TO DETERMINE WHAT IS THE ONE THING THAT OUR DEPARTMENTS CAN FOCUS ON IN ORDER TO IMPROVE STUDENT OUTCOMES AND MOVE THE NEEDLE TO SUPPORT OUR DISTRICT.

AND SO FROM THE ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS DEPARTMENTS THEN GO THROUGH THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPING A PLAN ON THE PAGE AT WHICH THEY ARE ABLE TO DEVELOP THEIR ONE THING ALONG WITH THEIR SUPPORTING OBJECTIVES.

AND FROM THERE, THE PLAN ON THE PAGE, WHICH IS WHAT THE DEIC GROUP PROVIDED FEEDBACK TO.

FROM THAT POINT, WE USED A PDSA WHICH IS PLANNED TO STUDY ACT PROCESS THIS CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT CYCLE THAT WE GO THROUGH IN ORDER TO TAKE ACTION STEPS AND HAVE A LIVING BREATHING DOCUMENT THAT GUIDES THE WORK THAT OUR DEPARTMENTS DO ON A DAILY BASIS.

AND WE REPORT OUT QUARTERLY THROUGH CADENCE OF ACCOUNTABILITY.

EVEN THOUGH WE REPORT OUT QUARTERLY ON THE CADENCE OF ACCOUNTABILITY.

EACH DEPARTMENT HAS A DASHBOARD.

AND SO IF YOU WERE TO ASK THEM, YOU KNOW, WHAT IS YOUR FOCUS? HOW DO YOU KNOW? HOW DO YOU KNOW HOW IT'S GOING? THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO TELL YOU BASED UPON THE DASHBOARD, WHICH THEY ARE MONITORING MONTHLY. AND SO WE HAVE LAGS WHICH ARE DEVELOPED WITH OUR SCORECARD.

THOSE ARE OUR LAGGING GOALS, AND THEN WE HAVE OUR LEADING MEASURES, WHICH ARE LAID OUT IN OUR DASHBOARD.

AND SO THEN WE HAVE OUR OVERALL SCORECARD.

AND AT THE END OF THE YEAR, DID WE DO WHAT WE SAY WE WERE GOING TO DO? HOW DID WE PERFORM AND WHAT MIGHT WE ADD? IN ADDITION, THE FOLLOWING YEAR, BUT THE VISION 2030, AS WE'VE TRANSITIONED, THINGS ARE WE'VE ADDED THE PIECE AND THAT'S THE STUDENT SCORECARD AS WELL.

AND SO AS WE GO THROUGH THE PROCESS OF THE DEVELOPING THE DIP.

WE ALSO LOOK AT HOW STUDENTS SCORECARD IMPLEMENTATION IS IS BEING ADDED AS WELL, AND SO WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT THAT.

SO TO KIND OF TAKE YOU THROUGH A LITTLE BIT OF A OF A HISTORY OF WHERE WE'VE BEEN IN THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS WITH REGARD TO THE DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN AND 16 17, WE ALIGNED THAT WE ALIGNED THE DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN WITH THE VISION.

[00:15:05]

THEN WE DEVELOPED FIDELITY LEED MEASURES IN 17 AND 18, AND IN 18-19 WE GOT A NEW ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEM AND THE FOCUS WAS TO ALIGN OUR DISTRICT AND OUR PROCESSES WITH THAT ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEM.

AND THEN IN NINETEEN TWENTY, WE KNOW THAT WE WERE IMPACTED BY COVID, SO WE HAD NEW CHALLENGES AND CHANGES.

AND LAST YEAR, WE TRIED TO DEVELOP WHAT WE CALL NEW NORMAL.

DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S NECESSARILY TRUE, BUT WE WANTED TO CONTINUE THE JOURNEY OF VISION 2020, AND WE WE CLOSED THAT OUT AND BEGAN THE PROCESS OF GOING DOWN THE VISION 2030 JOURNEY. AND SO HERE WE ARE TODAY, AND WE'RE BASICALLY SETTING UP OUR SYSTEM TO DO THE WORK THAT WE WERE DOING IN VISION 2020 AND MOVE IT FORWARD WITH VISION 2030.

AND WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE IS WE HAVE TO RESET OUR SYSTEMS BECAUSE THINGS CHANGE, PEOPLE CHANGE AND WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYONE IS AWARE OF THE PROCESS AND EVERYONE IS ALIGNED IN THE SAME DIRECTION AND BEHAVING IN WAYS OF HIGH CONFIDENCE.

AND SO THAT'S WHERE WE ARE NOW, AND WE ARE DOING A FANTASTIC JOB OF GETTING THERE.

AND SO WITH THAT, DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, BOARD MEMBERS TO MY LEFT, ANY QUESTIONS? TO MY RIGHT, I CAN'T SEE.

ALL RIGHT. I THINK I THINK YOU MIGHT HAVE COVERED IT QUITE ELOQUENTLY, SIR.

WE DON'T HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.

DON'T WANT TO GIVE YOU ANY PUSHBACK TODAY, BUT THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE PRESENTATION.

THIS IS GREAT. WE'RE SUPER EXCITED AND WE'RE ALL VERY INFORMED ABOUT OUR DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN. AND THAT'S BECAUSE OF YOU GUYS SHARING WITH US AND MAKING SURE THAT WE'RE ALL VERY AWARE OF HOW IT WORKS AND THAT WE FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH THE PROCESS.

SO THANK YOU SO MUCH.

ALL RIGHTY. NUMBER EIGHT, THIS LEADS US TO PRESENTATIONS, DR.

[8. Presentation]

CANTU.

YES, I WOULD LIKE TO ASK DAVID WRIGHT AND DR.

CHUCK ROWE TO COME FORWARD TO GIVE US A LITTLE BACKGROUND ON ORCHESTRA AND AN UPDATE ON WHERE WE ARE GOING.

THANK YOU. PRESIDENT NEWSOM, DR.

CANTU, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, VERY PLEASED TO COME AND DELIVER THIS PRESENTATION ALONG WITH CHUCK RO. I KNOW THAT [INAUDIBLE] JOHNSON WANTED TO BE HERE AND WOULD HAVE BEEN HERE, BUT HE IS IN CHICAGO AT A CONFERENCE AND SO HE WAS WITH US TO KIND OF MAKE THIS PRESENTATION, BUT HE JUST CANNOT BE HERE.

I'M GOING TO PAUSE FOR A LITTLE BIT JUST TO FOR A PORT OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE.

I'M GOING TO BE PRESENTING THE NEXT TWO PRESENTATIONS, AND IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO ME TO GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO SHAUN SCOTT.

HE'S MY WORK PLACE HERO.

AND SO HE USED TO GIVE A LOT OF PRESENTATIONS BACK TO BACK.

AND SO I FEEL REALLY GOOD ABOUT THIS IN MY CAREER.

SO MOVING INTO THE PRESENTATION.

SO WE HAVE IF YOU GO TO NEXT.

LET ME, I CAN DO THAT.

SO WE HAVE A WE'RE HERE FOR A COUPLE OF PURPOSES.

ONE WOULD BE TO ADDRESS HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA EXPANSION.

TWO TO ADDRESS THE AM PM MIDDLE SCHOOL ORCHESTRA SESSIONS.

TALK ABOUT A LITTLE BIT OF A LONGEVITY.

AND THEN OBVIOUSLY TO FULFILL THE VISION OF 2020 AND NOW 2030 OF PUTTING STUDENTS FIRST.

AND ALSO GIVING STUDENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR COE AND EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES.

SO THE GOAL OF ANY OF OUR PROGRAMS IS TO PROVIDE FAMILIES AND STUDENTS CHOICE, AND THIS ONE IS TO ENROLL IN ORCHESTRA.

AND IN THE FEEDER PATTERN OF WHERE THEY ATTEND.

SO I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF THE PAST AND THEN DR.

CHUCK ROWE WILL KIND OF GIVE YOU WHAT IS CURRENTLY GOING ON AND WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT YEAR.

SO IF YOU LOOK BACK IN 2000, 17, 18, WE STARTED THE ORCHESTRA AT THE INTERMEDIATES.

NOW THAT IS REALLY NOT TRUE.

WE STARTED IT IN 2016.

HOWEVER, THAT WAS AT THE FIFTH GRADE AND IT WAS JUST PART OF THE ROTATIONS TO GIVE KIDS A

[00:20:04]

FEEL FOR WHAT THEY WANT TO DO, WHETHER IT WAS BAND, WHETHER IT WAS COMPUTERS, WHETHER THEY'RE, YOU KNOW, WHETHER IT WAS ORCHESTRA.

ALL THOSE THINGS THAT WE GET THEM THROUGH TO GIVE THEM A SAMPLING.

SO BUT IN 2017 18 IS WHERE WE STARTED THE SIXTH GRADE PROGRAM FOR THE MIDDLE SCHOOLS. SO THEN WE MOVED ON TO MIDDLE SCHOOL IN 18-19.

NOW THIS PROGRAM IN 18-19.

IT WAS UNLIKE THE INTERMEDIATES IN THAT WE HAD A AM AND PM PROGRAM AT BEN BARBER.

AND SO STUDENTS WOULD EITHER COME TO THE AM PROGRAM, WHICH MEANT THAT THEIR PARENTS WOULD PICK THEM. THEIR PARENTS WOULD DELIVER, DELIVER THEM TO BEN BARBER, AND THEY WOULD BASICALLY TAKE THEIR CLASS AND BLEED IT.

IT WOULD BLEED INTO A LITTLE BIT OF FIRST PERIOD AND THEN WE WOULD PROVIDE TRANSPORTATION BACK TO THEIR HOME SCHOOL.

OR THE STUDENTS COULD TAKE IT IN THE PM PROGRAM, WHICH MEANT THAT AT THE BEGINNING OF EIGHTH PERIOD 8TH BLOCK, AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE WOULD WE WOULD PROVIDE TRANSPORTATION TO BEN BARBER.

THEY WOULD HAVE THEIR ORCHESTRA CLASS AND THEN PARENTS WOULD PICK THEM UP AROUND 4:45 TO FIVE O'CLOCK. AND THAT WAS THE PLAN SINCE 2018-19.

AND THEN IN 20-21, WE STARTED THE HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM, THE HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM WAS AT BEN BARBER AS WELL, BUT WE COULD HANDLE BOTH THE MIDDLE SCHOOL AND THE HIGH SCHOOL ONE BECAUSE THE MIDDLE, THE HIGH SCHOOL WAS SMALL.

IT WAS IT STARTED OFF ONLY AS NINTH GRADERS AND THEN THE NEXT YEAR WAS NINTH AND 10TH GRADERS. BUT ALSO THERE WEREN'T AS MANY KIDS.

AND PART OF THE ISSUE RIGHT NOW IS NEXT YEAR WE'LL ADD JUNIORS AND THEY'RE GOING TO NEED MORE SPACE.

AND RIGHT NOW, THE AM PM PROGRAM, THAT AM PROGRAM RUNS INTO THE FIRST SESSION OF BEN BARBER. SO THE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS CAN ONLY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT SECOND SESSION OF BEN BARBER, AND WE NEED THAT FIRST SESSION.

SO NOW SO WE'VE OUTGROWN IT, AND I'M GOING TO BRING UP DR. RO TO TALK ABOUT WHAT WE'RE DOING RIGHT NOW AND WHAT WE'RE LOOKING TO DO STARTING NEXT YEAR. SO CURRENTLY, OUR SIXTH GRADE STUDENTS, THE MAJORITY OF OUR SIXTH GRADE STUDENTS ARE STILL SERVICED AT THEIR CAMPUS WITH A TEACHER THAT GOES BETWEEN TWO CAMPUSES.

THIS YEAR WE HAD THE BENEFIT OF ADDING A PROGRAM SINCE WE'VE ADDED TWO NEW CAMPUSES AT MARTINEZ AND MCKINSEY.

WE HAVE A TEACHER THAT SERVICES THE INTERMEDIATE STUDENTS AT MARTINEZ AND THEN LATER IN THE DAY GOES UP TO MCKINSEY AND STILL SEES THOSE KIDS.

SO THE MCKINSEY STUDENTS AND THE MARTINEZ STUDENTS ARE SERVICED AT THEIR CAMPUS, SO THE MCKINSEY STUDENTS DON'T HAVE TO GET ON THE BUS AND COME TO BEN BARBER OR CHOOSE AM OR PM, THEY ARE SERVICED ON THEIR HOME CAMPUS.

AND, LIKE MR. WRIGHT SAID, THE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS, THE MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS ARE STILL DOING THAT AM PROGRAM OR THE PM PROGRAM, AND OUR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ARE STILL IN THAT SECOND SESSION OF BEN BARBER.

SO IN THE FUTURE, WHAT OUR PLAN IS TO DO.

WE WERE ADDING WITH OUR THANKS TO THE BOARD'S DECISION ON ADDING ADDITIONAL FINE ARTS PROGRAMS AT CROSS TIMBERS.

WE WERE GOING TO ADD A AN ORCHESTRA, A PROGRAM THAT WILL DO OUR ORCHESTRA PROGRAM ACROSS CHAMBERS AND AT TA HOWARD.

SO WE REALLY LIKE THAT MODEL.

IT GIVES OUR STUDENTS CONSISTENCY WITH THEIR DIRECTOR AND WE WOULD LIKE TO.

OUR PLAN TWO IS ADD THAT MODEL TO ALL OF OUR INTERMEDIATE AND MIDDLE SCHOOLS.

SO WE WOULD HAVE ONE TEACHER THAT GOES BETWEEN THE INTERMEDIATE AND MIDDLE SCHOOL IN THAT

[00:25:03]

FEEDER PATTERN, RATHER THAN SPLIT BETWEEN TWO INTERMEDIATE SCHOOLS.

WITH THIS PLAN, WE CAN SERVICE ALL OF OUR MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS AT THEIR HOME CAMPUS AND THEN OUR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS, WE CAN OPEN UP THAT MORNING SESSION SO WE CAN DOUBLE THE CAPACITY OF OUR ORCHESTRA PROGRAM AT BEN BARBER FOR OUR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS.

WITH THIS PLAN.

WE KIND OF ELIMINATE THE NEED TO TRANSPORT OUR MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS AND OUR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS, WE DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT TRANSPORTATION BECAUSE IT'S THERE ON THE REGULAR BEN BARBER SCHEDULE ANYWAY.

SO WE'VE ALREADY GOT THAT AT ALL OF THEIR HIGH SCHOOLS.

AND THAT'S KIND OF OUR PLAN FOR THE FUTURE.

ANY QUESTIONS? BOARD MEMBERS TO MY RIGHT ANY QUESTIONS, COMMENTS? MR. DAVIS. GENTLEMEN, THANK YOU.

I APPRECIATE IT.

THE PRESENTATION, I'M EXCITED ABOUT THE GROWTH IN THIS PARTICULAR AREA.

I DO HAVE SOME PAUSE OF CONCERN WITH THE FEEDER PATTERNS BETWEEN THE INTERMEDIATE SCHOOLS AND THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS AND OUR I REALIZE THE PROXIMITY IN SOME CASES AS CAN BE AS SIMPLE AS A PARKING LOT.

I'M JUST WORRIED ABOUT PERIODS OF INCLEMENT WEATHER AND ANY BECAUSE THOSE PARKING LIGHTS ARE OPEN FOR COMMUNITY MEMBERS TO COME THROUGH AT ANY POINT IN TIME.

THAT'S THE SAFETY OF THE TRANSPORT OF THE STUDENTS GOING BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN THE TWO CAMPUSES. CAN YOU SPEAK TO THAT A LITTLE BIT, PLEASE? THE STUDENTS WON'T TRANSPORT THE TEACHER OVER THE TEACHERS.

I'M SORRY. OK, GREAT. SO THE TEACHER WILL GO.

WE'LL HAVE AN INTERMEDIATE.

WE'LL HAVE A DIRECTOR THAT GOES AT THE INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL AND THEN LATER IN THE DAY, WE'LL GO TO THAT MIDDLE SCHOOL AND TEACH THOSE ORCHESTRA'S STUDENTS IN THE PROGRAM AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL. I FELT MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE ABOUT THE ADULT MOVING, RIGHT? ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU, MR. CANEDY. YES.

AGAIN, THANKS FOR THE PRESENTATION.

THE ONE QUESTION I HAVE IS REALLY WHERE WE ARE CURRENTLY, NOT NECESSARILY WHERE WE'RE GOING. WHEN YOU, WHEN YOU BRING IN THE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN THE AFTERNOON SESSION AND YOU'VE GOT THE INTERMEDIATE IN THE MIDDLE THERE.

ARE THEY IN THE SAME CLASS? THEY'RE NOT THERE AT THE SAME TIMES, LIKE OUR MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAM RUNS AT EIGHT O'CLOCK AND THE THE BEN BARBER FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL SESSION STARTS AT 11 AND THEN THE MIDDLE SCHOOL AFTERNOON SESSION STARTS AT FOUR.

OK? I WAS THINKING IT WAS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE DAY, AND AT THE END OF THE DAY IS, AS DAVID WAS DESCRIBING EARLIER, WELL, AND IT IS FOR THE MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS THE BEGINNING OF THE DAY.

RIGHT. THEIR DAY DOESN'T REALLY START UNTIL 8:30.

SO OUR MIDDLE SCHOOL CURRENT MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS ACTUALLY START EARLIER IN ORCHESTRA AT EIGHT O'CLOCK. OK, AND IF I CAN, IF I CAN JUST ADD ON TO THAT.

CHUCK'S EXACTLY RIGHT.

BUT THE ADDITION OF JUNIORS NEXT YEAR, IT REALLY WILL NEED.

IT'S GOING TO CAUSE US THE NEED FOR MORE OF THAT ORCHESTRA SPACE.

BOTH, BOTH THE AM AND PM SESSIONS, I MEAN, NOT NOT THE AMPM SESSIONS, BUT THE FIRST SESSION AND THE SECOND SESSION AT BEN BARBER FOR HIGH SCHOOL.

YEAH, THAT WAS MY CONCERN IS THE SPACE SITUATION.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE THEM, THEY'RE OVERLAPPING.

YEAH, THANK YOU.

BOARD MEMBERS TO MY LEFT MS. MARCUCCI, I'M EXCITED ABOUT THIS, ORCHESTRA IS SOMETHING THAT'S CLOSE TO MY HEART AND I ALWAYS LIKE TO TELL EVERYBODY THAT I PLAYED THE VIOLA.

SO IT IS AN INSTRUMENT AND IT'S A GREAT ONE.

AND YEAH, SO MY QUESTIONS ARE A LITTLE BIT ABOUT NUMBERS AS WELL.

I WAS CURIOUS.

I LIKE THE WAY THIS IS LAID OUT AS FAR AS I THINK IT WILL GIVE MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR MORE KIDS TO STAY INVOLVED, WHICH I THINK IS REALLY IMPORTANT.

BUT I'M CONCERNED ABOUT THE SPACE AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOLS.

YOU KNOW HOW THAT'S GOING TO WORK AS FAR AS, YOU KNOW, PHYSICAL SPACE AND INSTRUMENTATION, IF THERE'S ANY EXTRA EXPENSES THAT MAY BE INCURRED WITH THAT.

AND THEN THE OTHER PART OF THAT IS WHAT IS OUR CAPACITY? I MEAN, DO WE THINK AT SOME POINT, HOPEFULLY WHEN WE HAVE OUR ORCHESTRA PROGRAM FULLY VETTED WITH ALL FOUR YEARS, YOU KNOW, IN HIGH SCHOOL THERE, WHAT IS OUR CAPACITY ABOUT LIMITING KIDS, YOU KNOW, THE NUMBER OF KIDS THAT CAN PARTICIPATE? WELL, WE'RE NOT AT THE POINT WHERE WE EVER WANT TO LIMIT STUDENTS OTHER THAN JUST LIKE WE LIMIT A BASEBALL PLAYER WHO IT'S BASED ON SKILL SET.

WELL, THAT'S MY GOAL, TOO. SO THAT'S WHY I WAS ASKING THIS QUESTION.

AND, YOU KNOW, LONG TERM, WE MAY HAVE TO LOOK AT WHAT WE CAN DO, BUT RIGHT NOW WE FEEL LIKE WE'VE GOT SPACE AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOLS IN AREAS LIKE IN THE BAND HALL ON WHEN, WHEN THE BAND STUDENTS ARE, NOT WHEN THOSE THOSE PERIODS WHERE THE BAND IS NOT PRACTICING, YOU KNOW, THERE'S A CONFERENCE PERIOD, A COUPLE OF CONFERENCE

[00:30:03]

PERIODS, THERE'S THAT AND THEN WE'VE GOT OTHER SPACES AVAILABLE.

SO [INAUDIBLE] HAS ALREADY WORKED THAT OUT AND TALKED THROUGH THAT.

AND SO HE WOULD BE BETTER TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION.

BUT WE'VE ALREADY GOT THAT GOING.

AND LIKE THE PURCHASE OF ANY NEW EQUIPMENT AND THINGS LIKE THAT, THE INSTRUMENTS, WE FEEL LIKE WE'VE GOT A GOOD HANDLE.

WE ARE HAVING TO WALK, WORK WITH MS. TRONGUARD ABOUT STORAGE AND THOSE TYPE OF THINGS.

RIGHT NOW, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IT.

I APPRECIATE THE EFFORTS THAT ARE GOING INTO THIS.

SO HEAR ME, I SUPPORT THIS.

I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE ABLE TO SUSTAIN, SUSTAIN IT TO ENCOURAGE KIDS TO CONTINUE TO PARTICIPATE.

SO WE DO RUN INTO THE WALL OF SO MANY KIDS WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN WHAT'S NEXT.

THANK YOU, MS. THOMAS. AND I KIND OF MIRROR MS. MARCUCCI'S CONCERN BECAUSE THAT'S THE ONE REASON THAT WE MOVED ALL THE ORCHESTRA KIDS TO BEN BARBER IS BECAUSE THE SPACE ISSUE AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL.

SO THAT IS MY CONCERN IS ARE WE GOING TO HAVE ROOM FOR THEM AND SPACE FOR THE INSTRUMENTS GOING FORWARD ON THAT? SO IT SOUNDS LIKE MR. DR. JOHNSON, HAS THAT FIGURED OUT.

SO GOD LOVE HIM.

SO THAT'S GOOD. SO THANK YOU, MS. FARRAR. THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION.

I'M REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS, TOO.

THEY KIND OF TOUCHED ON A COUPLE OF THE THINGS THAT I HAD.

I WAS CURIOUS, LOGISTICALLY, I LIKE HOW THIS IS LAID OUT BETTER WHEN WE'RE NOT TRANSPORTING KIDS BACK AND FORTH.

ALSO LIKE THE IDEA OF HAVING THE SAME INSTRUCTOR FROM INTERMEDIATE TO MIDDLE KIND OF STAYING WITH THE KIDDOS.

DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY WE CURRENTLY HAVE ENROLLED IN THE PROGRAM AND AND YEAR OVER YEAR, ARE WE CONTINUING TO ADD MORE STUDENTS TO IT OR ARE THEY STAYING WITH THE PROGRAM OR KIND OF HOW IS HOW IS THAT LOOKING RIGHT NOW? SO I'M GOING TO LET CHUCK ANSWER MOST OF THAT.

BUT WHAT WE DO KNOW IS ONE, WE ARE DOWN BECAUSE OF COVID.

SO PRE-COVID WE HAD BETTER NUMBERS AND WE FEEL LIKE THAT THAT IS GOING TO IT'S GOING TO COME BACK. THE OTHER PART OF THIS IS WHAT WE DO KNOW IS A NOT A UNSUBSTANTIAL NUMBER OF STUDENTS COULDN'T TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ORCHESTRA BECAUSE OF THE AMPM PROGRAM.

SO WE KNOW THAT SOME OF THOSE STUDENTS WILL COME BACK, NOT NOT THE PREVIOUS STUDENTS, BUT IF IT'S AT IF THEY HAVE IT AT THEIR OWN SCHOOL, THEN THEY'LL BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE.

SO CURRENTLY, WE HAVE AN INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL, WE HAVE 140 STUDENTS, AND THAT'S JUST SIXTH GRADERS. PRE-COVID WE HAD 260, SO WE TOOK A BIG HIT.

BUT AND THAT'S NOT JUST THAT'S NOT JUST ORCHESTRA.

ALL OF OUR PROGRAMS KIND OF TOOK A HIT.

AND THEN AT MIDDLE SCHOOL, WE HAVE 152 STUDENTS IN ORCHESTRA AND IN HIGH SCHOOL WE HAVE 87. WE PRE-COVID, WE HAD 164 HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AND THEN AGAIN, WE TOOK A BIG HIT.

SO WE HAVE 87 NOW, BUT IT HAS BEEN A HUGE BARRIER FOR OUR SIXTH GRADERS THAT WANTED TO STAY IN ORCHESTRA BUT DIDN'T HAVE THE ABILITY TO BE TRANSPORTED LIKE A PARENT, COULDN'T DROP THEM OFF OR PICK THEM UP AND THEN BEING ON CAMPUS, IT'LL OPEN UP THAT OPPORTUNITY.

AND ALSO HAVING THE HISTORY OF THAT, LIKE WE HAVE SOME KIDS, IT WOULD BE LIKE, OH, I DON'T WANT TO START THAT IF I CAN'T CONTINUE IT RIGHT? AND NOW IF THEY CAN CONTINUE AT THEIR HOME CAMPUS AND THEY KNOW THAT THEY CAN, WE FULLY EXPECT THAT THESE NUMBERS ARE GOING TO JUST RISE AND GO.

I APPRECIATE YOU TAKING A LOOK AT THAT AND CONSIDERING ALL OF THAT, THANK YOU.

YEAH, THIS WAS GREAT.

THE VISION, I THINK HERE IS WHAT MOST OF US HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THIS ORCHESTRA PROGRAM WITH THE DISTRICT FOR A WHILE.

WE WANTED TO SEE IT KIND OF EVOLVE AND WHAT IT COULD BECOME.

AND WE'VE KIND OF GONE THROUGH ALL THE BUMPS AND WEATHERED A BUNCH OF THINGS ALONG THE WAY. SO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE INGENUITY AND STUFF.

AND I WILL SAY THE FIRST THING I THOUGHT ABOUT WHEN I LOOKED AT IT WAS, MAN, WE'RE NOT GOING TO BUS THESE KIDS. WE'RE GOING TO SAVE A LITTLE BIT OF MONEY.

SO THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WE'RE EXCITED. I WILL ADD ONE MORE THING LIKE HAVING ADDITIONAL PERIODS AT BEN BARBER ALSO OPENS UP THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A FULL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA AND NOT JUST A STRING ORCHESTRA. SO SOME OF OUR WIND INSTRUMENTAL KIDS CAN ALSO GET INVOLVED BECAUSE THAT'S ANOTHER CATEGORY THAT THEY CAN COMPETE IN.

THAT'S AWESOME. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

DR.

CANTU, ONE MORE TIME.

YES, MR. WRIGHT IS STILL UP THERE AND HE IS READY TO TALK TO US ABOUT THE 2022-23 DISTRICT CALENDAR RECOMMENDATION.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

SO CALENDAR IS A PROCESS AND A CREATION THAT WE GO THROUGH, AND

[00:35:03]

USUALLY I START ABOUT SEPTEMBER ON THIS AND IT RUNS THROUGH THIS TIME OF YEAR.

SO OBVIOUSLY A LOT OF GOALS, A LOT OF THINGS GO INTO IT.

THERE'S A CREATION OF A COMMITTEE THERE'S WE HAVE TO ESTABLISH PRIORITIES, MEETINGS, SURVEYS AND THEN FINALIZE A CALENDAR, WHICH IS WHAT WE'RE DOING HERE TODAY AT THE BOARD MEETING. SO THE THE COMMITTEE IS MADE UP OF A VARIED, VERY WIDE SWATH OF PEOPLE. WE WE TRY TO GAUGE.

PEOPLE THAT ARE AT EVERY LEVEL, FROM EVERY GROUP, FROM PARENTS, STUDENTS, TEACHERS, WE MAKE SURE WE GET OUR ORGANIZATIONS, ADMINISTRATIONS, COUNSELORS.

SO AND THAT AND THAT COMMITTEE IS MADE UP OF ABOUT 40 PEOPLE WHEN WE GET TOGETHER.

WE ALSO LOOK AT PRIORITIES AND OUTSIDE OF THE PRIORITY OF PEOPLE WANTING TO START LATER AND END EARLIER.

WE HAVE TO LOOK AT OTHER THINGS AND THAT IS, YOU KNOW, WHEN ARE WE GOING TO START, WHAT YOU KNOW, ARE WE LOOKING TO END? TEACHER PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT VERSUS TEACHER WORK DAYS? THIS COMES UP EVERY YEAR.

DO WE WANT A FULL WEEK OF THANKSGIVING? AND THE ANSWER IS ALWAYS YES, YOU KNOW, PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCE DAY, FOUR DAY WEEKENDS.

I MEAN, YOU WOULDN'T THINK THAT THAT WOULD BE BIG CONVERSATIONS, BUT EVERY TIME YOU HAVE A FOUR DAY WEEKEND, THAT'S GREAT.

BUT THEN YOU EXTEND YOUR CALENDAR BY A DAY.

SO THEN YOU LOOK AT YOUR BOTH SEMESTERS.

YOU NEED KIND OF A BALANCE CALENDAR AS FAR AS SEMESTERS, BUT YOU DON'T WANT IT EXACTLY BALANCED BECAUSE YOU HAVE SO MANY TESTING DAYS IN THE SECOND SEMESTER.

SO WE HAVE THIS PROCESS WE MEET AS A COMMITTEE THIS YEAR.

WE STARTED OFF WITH FIVE DIFFERENT CALENDARS A THROUGH E.

WHEN THE COMMITTEE FINISHED, THEY REALLY LIKED OR THEY NARROWED IT DOWN TO CALENDARS A, B AND D. BUT WE HAD FOUR VERSIONS OF A AND TWO VERSIONS OF D, AND SO THEY TWEAKED THEM SOME. AND THEN WE TOOK IT TO THE DEIC AND THEY TOOK A LOOK AT IT KIND OF VOTED, TOOK IT TO THIS SUPER SAC COMMITTEE, WHICH IS THE SUPERINTENDENT ADVISORY COUNCIL.

THEY LOOKED AT IT, VOTED ON THEIR TOP ONES THEY LIKED, AND THEN WE TOOK IT BACK TO A VOTE TO THE CALENDAR COMMITTEE.

SO IT'S A PRETTY GOOD LITTLE PROCESS THAT ALL GETS US DOWN TO THE TOP TWO CALENDARS THAT WE PUT OUT TO THE COMMUNITY.

JUST A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE TOP TWO CALENDARS AND THE THINGS THAT ARE THE MAIN DIFFERENCES OVER PRESIDENTS DAY AND CALENDAR OPTION ONE.

THERE'S A PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT DAY AND CALENDAR OPTION TWO.

THERE WAS A STUDENT TEACHER HOLIDAY.

AND THEN THE BIG THING ABOUT THIS CALENDAR THAT'S DIFFERENT IS THE WINTER BREAK.

OPTION ONE HAD IT STARTING THE BREAK, STARTING ON MONDAY, THE 19TH, AND THEN TEACHERS COME BACK ON THE TUESDAY THE SECOND AND STUDENTS COME BACK ON THE THIRD, WHICH IS A WEDNESDAY.

OPTION TWO, WHICH IS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT, STARTS ON THAT WE GO OFF ON WEDNESDAY THE 21ST, TEACHERS COME BACK ON THE WEDNESDAY, THE THIRD STUDENTS DON'T COME BACK UNTIL MONDAY, THE FOLLOWING WEEK ON THE SIXTH.

SO AFTER ALL THAT, AFTER SIX THOUSAND AND FOURTEEN RESPONDENTS, OPTION TWO WAS THE CALENDAR THAT GARNERED 53 PERCENT OF THE VOTE AND OR WAS THE MOST PEOPLE WERE HAPPY WITH THAT WITH THAT ONE VERSUS 47 PERCENT OF OPTION ONE.

[00:40:04]

NOW YOU CAN LOOK AT THAT AS TWO WAYS IT COULD BE THAT THAT'S TOO CLOSE OR YOU CAN LOOK AT IT AS THE CALENDAR COMMITTEE DID A GOOD JOB OF GIVING TWO VIABLE CALENDARS.

AND THIS IS A LITTLE BIT CLOSER.

NORMALLY, THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS, THE PERCENTAGE THAT WERE ABOUT 60/40 IN THE LAST COUPLE OF SEVERAL YEARS THIS YEAR, IT'S ABOUT 53/47.

SO WE ARE RECOMMENDING THE OPTION TWO, WHICH IS THE 52 PERCENT, UP 53 PERCENT OF THE VOTE.

AND THEN I SHOULD HAVE PUT A QUESTION SLIDE, BUT I'M NOT QUITE AS GOOD AS SEAN SCOTT IS, SO WE'LL FORGIVE YOU THIS ONE TIME.

OK? BOARD MEMBERS, DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS TO MY LEFT, MS. MARCUCCI? I DO APPRECIATE ALL THE WORK THAT GOES INTO THE CALENDARS, AND I KNOW THAT WHEN PEOPLE LOOK AT THE CALENDAR CHOICES, SOMETIMES THEY'RE A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED AND JUST LOOK AT THE BEGINNING DATE AND THE END DATE, LIKE YOU HAD MENTIONED EARLIER.

BUT I DO RECOGNIZE THE AMOUNT OF WORK THAT GOES INTO IT, LIKE THE BALANCED SEMESTERS AND WHAT A DIFFERENCE THAT MAKES, ESPECIALLY IN THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL AND AND ALL OF THAT.

SO I JUST WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU FOR THE WORK THAT THE COMMITTEE IS DOING, THAT YOU'RE DOING AS WELL.

MY QUESTION IS HOW FAR IN ADVANCE COULD WE PLAN CALENDARS? BECAUSE THAT'S ONE OF THE REQUESTS I GET A LOT IS IF THERE WAS ANY WAY WE COULD LOOK AT TWO YEARS AT A TIME OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

YOU KNOW, THERE WAS TWO YEARS.

THERE WERE SEVERAL YEARS AGO WHEN DONNA I BELIEVE WAS THE ONE DOING CALENDARS.

I'VE BEEN DOING ABOUT FIVE YEARS.

THEY TRIED TO DO A TWO YEAR CALENDAR AND THEN WHAT HAPPENED WAS THEY HAD TO COME BACK AND MAKE SEVERAL CHANGES OVER THE JUST BECAUSE IT, YOU KNOW, THINGS HAPPEN.

AND I WILL TELL YOU THIS YEAR, WE DIDN'T.

WE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW TILL THE DAY BEFORE THE CALENDAR COMMITTEE MET IN OCTOBER WHICH SPRING BREAK WE WERE GOING TO BE TAKING BECAUSE WE COULDN'T FIND, WE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT DAY, WHAT WEEK TCC'S NEXT YEAR'S SPRING BREAK WAS GOING TO BE.

AND SO WE HAVE TO BE IN LINE WITH TCC SPRING BREAK OTHERWISE, WE GOT A BUNCH OF KIDS THAT ARE HAVING TO GO TO SCHOOL FOR TCC WHEN EVERYBODY ELSE IS OFF.

AND SO, YOU KNOW, WE COULD TRY IT, BUT YOU KNOW, THINGS ARE I THINK IT GETS REALLY TENTATIVE WHEN YOU'RE TRYING TO PLAN THAT FAR OUT.

YOU KNOW, WE'VE HAD TO COME BACK A COUPLE OF TIMES THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS TO MODIFY THE CALENDAR FOR VERY GOOD REASONS.

AND SO, YOU KNOW, WE COULD PUT ONE OUT.

BUT HOW YOU KNOW, I GUESS ONE OF THE PART OF THE THING WOULD BE THAT MIGHT BE GOOD AS PARENTS WOULD KNOW WHAT THE START DATE WAS.

BUT AS FAR AS EVERYTHING ELSE, I MEAN, IT'S THE BEST WE COULD THINK TO DO.

BUT I THINK THE COMPLEXITY OF IT, I MEAN, I LIKE WHAT YOU'RE SPEAKING ABOUT THERE, I THINK IS A BIG PART OF THAT AND THE TYPES OF PROGRAMS. AND I'LL SO I APPRECIATE THAT RESPONSE.

AND YOU KNOW, AGAIN, IT LOOKS SO EASY UNTIL YOU JUMP IN AND DO IT.

YEAH. SO THANK YOU FOR THAT.

ANYONE ELSE TO MY LEFT? TO MY RIGHT. WELL, THANK YOU, SIR.

YOU DO GET BONUS POINTS FOR STAMINA, WHICH MIGHT BE MORE THAN DR.

SCOTT, SO THANK YOU.

THIS MOVES US TO PUBLIC COMMENTS.

[9. Public Comments]

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

EACH SPEAKER MUST 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 MUST BE MADE AVAILABLE TO ALL TRUSTEES IN THE SUPERINTENDENT, AND BOARD POLICY PROHIBITS THE DISCUSSION OF COMPLAINTS AGAINST DISTRICT EMPLOYEES DURING AN OPEN FORUM.

I'VE GOT THREE CARDS, MS. MOYET IS THERE ANY OTHERS? OUR FIRST SPEAKER TONIGHT IS J.R.

MARTINEZ. IF YOU WANT TO MAKE YOUR WAY TO THE MICROPHONE.

[00:45:01]

GOOD EVENING, BOARD, I'M J.R.

MARTINEZ, AND I AM CURRENTLY A TAD BOARD MEMBER HERE TO ASK FOR YOUR VOTE TONIGHT, BUT BEFORE I GET INTO THAT, I REALLY WANT TO COMPLIMENT YOU GUYS ON THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS AS I ENTERED INTO THE PARKING LOT.

WONDERFUL IDEA.

GREAT SURPRISE. SO DEFINITELY SHOW ME THE WAY HERE.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, I ALSO WANT TO RECOGNIZE MY FELLOW TAD BOARD MEMBERS THAT ARE HERE TONIGHT, SO WE'LL DEFINITELY HEAR FROM THEM ALSO BEFORE I REALLY GET INTO MY COMMENTS JUST TO GIVE YOU A BRIEF BACKGROUND ABOUT MYSELF.

I'M A PAST PRESIDENT OF THE GREATER FORT WORTH ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS AND ALSO A PAST FORT WORTH ISD BOARD MEMBER.

SO I TRULY APPRECIATE ALL THAT YOU GUYS DO.

I KNOW WHAT YOU GO THROUGH, I KNOW WHAT THE PAY IS.

SO BUT IT'S ALWAYS THE SUCCESS OF OUR CHILDREN.

BEFORE I REALLY GET INTO ASKING FOR YOUR VOTE TONIGHT JUST TO GIVE YOU A COUPLE OF GREAT THINGS THAT THE TAD BOARD DID THIS PAST YEAR AND THAT THE APPRAISAL DISTRICT DID SO TO CERTIFY THE 2021 APPRAISAL ROLE EARLY ON JULY 22ND, AND TAD HAS CERTIFIED THE ROLL ON TIME FOR OVER THE PAST 13 YEARS.

IN 2021, TAD PROCESSED OVER 150000 TAXPAYER AGENT PROTEST.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, TAD CONTINUES TO IMPROVE THE ONLINE PROTEST PROCESS AND VALUE NEGOTIATION TOOLS, WHICH HELP FACILITATE RESOLUTIONS AND VALUE DISPUTES.

RECOGNIZED AS ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO WORK IN FORT WORTH BY THE FORT WORTH INK MAGAZINE.

TED WAS RANKED 27 OUT OF 40, AND IN ADDITION TO THAT, IN MAY OF 2021, TED RECEIVED THE GOVERNMENT FINANCE OFFICERS ASSOCIATION OF THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA CERTIFICATE OF ACHIEVEMENT FOR EXCELLENCE OF FINANCIAL REPORTING.

THIS AWARD WAS TAD'S 30 SECOND CONSECUTIVE YEAR RECEIVING THIS HONOR.

I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT THAT YOU AT LEAST GET AN UPDATE OF WHAT TAD IS DOING BECAUSE A LOT OF TIMES YOU MAKE THE VOTE, YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENS.

SO THAT'S YOUR UPDATE.

SO TONIGHT I'M HERE, AS I SAID, FOR REELECTION, FOR THE TAD BOARD.

I'M FINISHING OUT A ONE YEAR ELECTION THAT I FEEL FOR JOHN MOLINEAUX, WHO WASN'T UNABLE TO FULFILL HIS TERM SEEKING A TWO YEAR THE ELECTION.

IF ANYTHING, WE KNOW YOU HAVE THE VOTES.

WE ASK THAT YOU PLEASE SPLIT YOUR VOTES TONIGHT BETWEEN MYSELF AND TONY POMPA AND HOPEFULLY RECEIVE THAT.

LOOKING FORWARD TO REPRESENTING YOU GUYS.

HAVE A GREAT EVENING. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU. OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS GARY LASODA.

GOOD EVENING, PRESIDENT NEWSOM BOARD MEMBERS, SUPERINTENDENT CANTU, MY NAME IS GARY LOZADA, AND I RESIDE AT 802 DOVE CREEK TRAIL, SOUTH LAKE, TEXAS.

I CURRENTLY ALSO SERVE ON THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF TARRANT APPRAISAL DISTRICT.

I HAVE BEEN SERVING FOR TWO YEARS.

MY RESUME, WHICH I THINK YOU HAVE A COPY OF, WE'LL EXPLAIN PROBABLY THE BEST AS TO WHY I WAS QUALIFIED TWO YEARS AGO TO BE ELECTED ON THE BOARD.

I'D LIKE TO GIVE YOU A FEW BRIEF HIGHLIGHTS OF MY BACKGROUND.

FIRST OF ALL, I HAVE A MASTER'S DEGREE IN EDUCATION FROM STANFORD UNIVERSITY.

I ALSO SERVED AS ASSISTANT TO THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS, ASSISTANT TO THE CITY MANAGER AND DIRECTOR OF ADMINISTRATION FOR DALLAS AREA RAPID TRANSIT.

I ALSO HAD THE UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE SIX YEARS ON THE TARRANT APPRAISAL REVIEW BOARD. IN THAT TIME FRAME, I CHAIRED THOUSANDS OF HEARINGS AND HAD SEVERAL, I DON'T KNOW, THOUSAND PROBABLY INDIVIDUALS WHO HAD COME FORWARD ON THEIR INDIVIDUAL APPRAISALS WHERE THEY FELT THAT THEY NEEDED A PROTEST. SO KEENLY, I GUESS YOU MIGHT SAY INTERTWINED AND UNDERSTAND WHAT THE SYSTEM IS. THESE PAST TWO YEARS, THE BOARD HAS MADE SOME SIGNIFICANT CHANGES.

WHEN I FIRST CAME ON THE BOARD AND WAS SWORN IN JANUARY OF 2019, I WAS SOMEWHAT SHOCKED.

I WALKED IN. THERE WAS NO AMERICAN FLAG.

THERE WAS NO TEXAS FLAG.

THERE WAS NO PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE, AND THERE WAS NO INVOCATION BY THE SECOND BOARD MEETING THAT ALL TOOK PLACE.

TED HAS BECOME A MORE TRANSPARENT BOARD THAN IN THE PAST.

BOARD AGENDAS, ALONG WITH AGENDA PACKETS AND PACKING INFORMATION, ARE AVAILABLE PRIOR TO THE MEETING. TAD BOARD MEETINGS ARE NOW BROADCAST LIVE IN REAL TIME.

UNSPENT T&D MONIES, WHICH BASICALLY WERE BUDGETED IN EXCESS OF $2 MILLION, HAVE BEEN RETURNED TO THE TAXING ENTITIES IN THE LAST TWO YEARS BECAUSE WE WANT TO BE GOOD STEWARDS OF THE TAXPAYERS MONEY.

ALL, EXCUSE ME, ALL BILLING AGREEMENTS IN EXCESS OF $50000 IN THE AGGREGATE MUST NOW COME BEFORE THE BOARD FOR APPROVAL PRIOR TO ISSUANCE.

I COULD GO ON, BUT I KNOW I'M LIMITED IN TIME.

[00:50:02]

SO IN SUMMARY, I'M ASKING FOR A MINIMUM OF 150 VOTES FROM THIS BOARD THIS EVENING.

OVER 20 ENTITIES HAVE CAST THEIR VOTES FOR ME THIS YEAR BECAUSE OF MY EXPERIENCE AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS, WHICH YOU SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED SOME RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THOSE ENTITIES IN YOUR BOARD PACKETS.

I HOPE YOU HAVE. OTHER CANDIDATES MAY RECEIVE LARGE NUMBERS OF VOTES, BUT THEY USUALLY COME FROM LARGER ENTITIES OF ONE OR TWO.

I WOULD HOPE THAT YOU WOULD NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN AGAIN BECAUSE THOSE LARGER ENTITIES TRY TO FORCE THEIR WILL UPON THE SMALLER ENTITIES.

I URGE YOU NOT TO LET THAT HAPPEN AND I CAN ASSURE YOU THIS I WILL REPRESENT MANSFIELD.

IT'S THE SAME WAY THAT I WOULD REPRESENT ANY OTHER DISTRICT, REGARDLESS OF ITS SIZE.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, SIR.

OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS TONY POMPA.

GOOD EVENING, TONY POMPA LIVE AT 501 FOREST LAKE COURT, ARLINGTON, TEXAS, IN THE WIMBLEDON NEIGHBORHOOD, SO JUST ABOUT ABOUT THREE BLOCKS NORTH OF THE BOUNDARIES FOR THE DISTRICT, I THINK RAUOL IS ON THE FARTHEST NORTH STREET FROM THE DISTRICT AND I LIVE AROUND THE CORNER FROM HIM.

IT'S GOOD TO SEE SOME FAMILIAR FACES HERE.

I CAME ONTO THE BOARD ABOUT 10 MONTHS AGO.

WE HAD ONE BOARD MEMBER THAT WAS NOT ABLE TO COMPLETE HIS TERM, AND THEY ASKED ME IF I WOULD SERVE AND I GLADLY DID.

I THINK YOU'VE HEARD A GOOD SUMMARY OF WHAT WE'VE DONE OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS, MORE SPECIFIC THIS YEAR.

SO I WANTED TO JUST TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT OUR PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD, CATHERINE WOLLMAN AND MYSELF AND SOME OF THE OTHER BOARD MEMBERS ARE THINKING ABOUT DOING NEXT YEAR. AS LONG AS WE HAVE YOUR SUPPORT.

ONE OF THE BIG THINGS THAT WE BELIEVE WE HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF IS SECURITY, THAT A SECURITY HAS BECOME A HUGE ISSUE FOR ALL OF OUR ENTITIES.

WE'VE HEARD ABOUT SCHOOL DISTRICTS WHOSE DATA WAS COMPROMISED AND WHAT A BIG ISSUE THAT BECOMES VERY QUICKLY.

SO I CAN JUST IMAGINE IF THAT HAPPENED TO TAD AND WE WEREN'T ABLE TO DO WHAT WE DO FOR THE TAXING ENTITIES.

IT WOULD AFFECT EVERY TAXING ENTITY'S ABILITY TO COLLECT TAXES.

SO I THINK THAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT WE DO THAT.

WHEN I JOINED THE SCHOOL BOARD IN IN ARLINGTON IN 2011, ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS THAT WE DID WAS A STRATEGIC PLAN.

AND LISTENING TO YOUR STRATEGIC PLANNING JUST REMINDED ME OF ALL THAT AND WHAT A GREAT JOB YOUR STAFF DOES.

AND IN LETTING YOU KNOW AND KEEPING YOU UPDATED ON HOW YOU GUYS ARE COMING ALONG WITH THAT, BECAUSE I THINK ONCE WE DID THAT FOR THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, I REALLY FELT LIKE WE ALL KIND OF GOT ON THE SAME PAGE.

THE BOARD MEMBERS, THE SUPERINTENDENT, THE STAFF FROM TOP TO BOTTOM, IT WAS IT WAS A HUGE CHANGE, AS I'M SURE THAT YOU CAN TELL WHEN YOU HAVE A GOOD STRATEGIC PLAN, HOW WELL IT JUST FEELS GOOD. IT FEELS LIKE EVERYTHING WORKS RIGHT OR EVERYBODY'S ON THE SAME PAGE.

EVERYBODY'S GOING IN THE SAME DIRECTION.

AND I THINK THAT'D BE BENEFICIAL FOR OUR OUR OUR BOARD AT TOD.

I'M PRETTY KEENLY AWARE OF THE ROLE, WHICH IS A LOT LIKE YOUR HERE ON THE BOARD THAT MINE IS WE HAVE YOU HAVE A SUPERINTENDENT, WE HAVE THE CHIEF APPRAISER AND REALLY HE MANAGES THE DISTRICT. SO OUR ROLE IS OVERSIGHT AND GOVERNANCE, BUT STILL MAKING SURE THAT THE BOARD AND ALL THE STAFF ARE ON THE SAME PAGE.

I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT.

SO THOSE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE HOPE TO CONTINUE TO WORK ON FOR THIS YEAR COMING UP. WE'D LIKE TO ASK FOR YOUR VOTE AGAIN, AS J.R.

DID EARLIER, TO SPLIT THOSE BETWEEN THE TWO OF US.

AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

APPRECIATE IT. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THIS MOVES US ON TO THE HUMAN RESOURCES REPORT.

[10. Human Resources Report]

WE HAVE THE OVER 20 YEARS REPORT, MS. MARCUCCI DID YOU WANT TO SHARE THAT REPORT? NOT REALLY, BECAUSE THERE'S SOME REALLY GREAT NAMES ON HERE, BUT I WILL.

I'M GOING TO REWORD THAT NEXT TIME.

SO TONIGHT I WOULD LIKE TO RECOGNIZE TRACY JOHNSON, THE PRINCIPAL AT DALE BOREN.

TWENTY NINE YEARS IN EDUCATION, AND ALL OF THOSE HAVE BEEN WITH MANSFIELD ISD, SO WE WILL GREATLY MISS HER.

AND THEN DONNA O'BRIAN.

THERE WAS A CELEBRATION FOR HER YESTERDAY.

STILL KIND OF HARD TO BELIEVE THAT SHE'S AREA SUPERINTENDENT.

SHE'S HAD 32 YEARS IN EDUCATION AND 31 OF THOSE WITH MANSFIELD ISD, AND SHE CHOSE TO SPEND HER TIME WITH US HERE TONIGHT, EVEN THOUGH SHE'S RETIRING.

SO I REALLY DO APPRECIATE THAT AND WANT TO RECOGNIZE HER.

AND THEN WE HAVE CHERYL VELLA TITLE ONE INTERVENTIONIST AT CROSS TIMBERS INTERMEDIATE

[00:55:03]

SCHOOL. TWENTY SEVEN YEARS IN EDUCATION AND TWENTY OF THOSE WITH MANSFIELD ISD AND TRACY WARREN, SPEECH LANGUAGE PATHOLOGIST.

TWENTY FIVE YEARS IN EDUCATION, IN TWENTY FIVE OF THOSE WITH MANSFIELD ISD.

SO WE'RE MISSING SOME TRULY GREAT PEOPLE AND I REALLY APPRECIATE ALL THAT THEY'VE DONE TO INVEST IN OUR STUDENTS AND IN OUR COMMUNITY, AND I HOPE THAT THEY'LL COME BACK AND SUB AND HELP US ONCE THEY'RE RETIRED.

SO THERE'S STILL OPTIONS TO STAY INVOLVED.

I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE PUTTING THAT OUT IN THE UNIVERSE.

JUST, I MEAN, WHATEVER.

BUT I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO JOIN ME IN A ROUND OF APPLAUSE BECAUSE WE TRULY APPRECIATE ALL THEY'VE DONE. [APPLAUSE] DR.

CANTU. YES, I'D ALSO JUST LIKE TO TAKE A PAUSE JUST FOR A MOMENT.

A SPECIAL MOMENT OF RECOGNITION FOR DONNA O'BRIAN.

DONNA, YOU'VE AS AS MS. MARCUCCI STATED, YOU HAVE BEEN AN EDUCATION FOR 32 YEARS, BUT 31 OF THOSE HAVE BEEN RIGHT HERE WITH US IN MANSFIELD ISD AND MOST RECENTLY AS AN AREA SUPERINTENDENT.

TONIGHT IS IS HER LAST BOARD MEETING AND WE JUST LIKE TO GIVE HER ANOTHER ROUND OF APPLAUSE AND APPRECIATE HER FOR ALL OF THE OUTSTANDING SERVICE, THE DEDICATION AND YOUR COMMITMENT TO THE MANSFIELD ISD COMMUNITY.

SO WE'RE GOING TO MISS YOU DON'T.

I CAN'T EVEN REMEMBER A TIME WHEN SHE WASN'T HERE, SO THIS MOVES US ON TO BOARD APPROVED NEW HIRES.

MAY I PLEASE RECEIVE A MOTION TO MOVE? I'VE GOT MR. CANEDY AND MR. WARREN, DR.

CANTU, DO YOU HAVE INFORMATION YOU WANT TO SHARE? I WOULD JUST ASK FOR YOU TO APPROVE THE HUMAN RESOURCES REPORT AS PRESENTED, WHICH INCLUDES APPROVING DR.

GEORGE E. SWEASY AS OUR NEW AREA SUPERINTENDENT.

ANY QUESTIONS? HEARING NONE, 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.

[APPLAUSE] DR. CANTU.

STAND BY. BUSINESS ITEM NUMBER 11, BUSINESS ITEMS REQUIRING BOARD ACTION, WE WILL NOW

[11. Business Items Requiring Board Action]

CONSIDER THE APPROVAL OF RESOLUTION 22-11, ELECTING THE CENTRAL APPRAISAL DISTRICT BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

MAY I PLEASE RECEIVE A MOTION? I WOULD LIKE IT TO MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE RESOLUTION NUMBER 2211 FOR THE CENTRAL APPRAISAL DISTRICT BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

I NEED, MAY I PLEASE RECEIVE A SECOND.

MS. MARCUCCI.

CAN YOU LET US KNOW WHAT THAT IS.

TO DO 238 VOTES FOR DON BEASON? SORRY I AM WRITING.

ANY QUESTIONS OR DISCUSSION.

I JUST WANTED TO COME BACK BEHIND THAT AND STATE THAT I AGREE WITH THIS RECOMMENDATION THAT MS. THOMAS HAS A LITTLE BIT OF RESEARCH THAT I'VE DONE INTO THE APPRAISAL DISTRICT AND ALL OF THAT. I THINK THAT THIS IS WHERE OUR SUPPORT COULD BE BEST USED GOING FORWARD.

AND THERE'S FOUR OTHERS THAT ARE WAY PAST EIGHT HUNDRED VOTES ANYWAY, AND THIS WILL HELP HIM. HE IS ONE THAT WE VOTED FOR LAST YEAR, AND SO THIS WILL HELP HIM GET UP, GET THE VOTES THAT HE NEEDS TO HOPEFULLY RETURN.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS TO MY RIGHT? HEARING NONE, ALL THOSE IN THE FAVOR OF THE MOTION PLEASE USE SOUND VOTE OF AYE.

AYE. ALL RIGHT, ALL THOSE OPPOSED, PLEASE SAY NO.

MOTION PASSES SIX-ZERO.

ELEVEN POINT TWO CONSIDERATION AND APPROVAL RESOLUTION 22-12.

ELECTING THE TARRANT APPRAISAL DISTRICT BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

MAY I PLEASE RECEIVE A MOTION? I'D LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION TO CONSIDER THE APPROVAL OF RESOLUTION NUMBER 2212 TO DO LET'S SEE 90 VOTES FOR MR. DIAT. 10 VOTES FOR MR. JORDAN. FIFTY SIX VOTES FOR MARTINEZ.

TWENTY EIGHT VOTES FOR MR. POMPA AND THEN 41 VOTES FOR MS.

[01:00:02]

WILEMON. THAT KIND OF PUTS EVERYBODY AT 835 AND THEN 809 FOR A TOTAL.

SO MR. DIAT FROM THE FIGURES THAT I HAVE AS OF RIGHT NOW, IT WOULD MAKE MR. DIAT WITH 809 AND MR. POMPA WITH 809 AND MR. JORDAN, MR. MARTINEZ AND MRS. WILLMAN AT 834.

SO THAT'S MY MOTION.

CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THE LAST ONE FOR WILEMON WAS? WILEMON IS 41 VOTES, WHICH WOULD MAKE HER TOTAL LIKE AT EIGHT THIRTY FOUR AND THOSE THOSE TOTALS ARE FROM THE PAPERWORK OR THE THAT WE RECEIVED.

YEAH, THE SPREADSHEET THAT WE RECEIVED THE LATEST ONE TWENTY EIGHT VOTES.

I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE I HAVE THIS CORRECT, 90 FOR DIET, 10 FOR JORDAN, 56 FOR MARTINEZ, 28 FOR POMPA AND 41 FOR WILEMON.

CORRECT? MAY I PLEASE RECEIVE A SECOND? ANY QUESTIONS OR DISCUSSIONS, FARRAR. SORRY, SO JUST A QUICK UPDATE.

WE DID GET THE EMAIL THAT HAD THE MOST RECENT AND THERE WERE A FEW ENTITIES THAT WERE NOT REPORTED ON THERE. SO IF Y'ALL WANT TO WRITE THEM DOWN, I WENT BACK AND WATCHED A COUPLE OF MEETINGS FROM LAST NIGHT.

IT LOOKS LIKE EVERMAN ISD.

I CALLED AND TALKED TO THEM.

TWENTY FIVE OF THEIR VOTES WENT TO JORDAN.

SO THAT WOULD UPDATE THAT NUMBER.

I COULD NOT FIND OUT.

LET'S SEE A CITY OF BURLESON.

FIVE VOTES WENT TO LOSODA.

CITY OF NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, 35 VOTES WENT TO WILEMON.

AND I COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING FOR THE CITY OF WESTLAKE OR ALEDO ISD, SO EACH OF THOSE HAD FIVE VOTES.

SO WE'RE MISSING A TOTAL OF 10 OF THEM.

OK. AND THAT JUST KIND OF FILLS IN SOME GAPS FOR EVERYONE JUST TO KIND OF TAKE A LOOK AT SO ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR DISCUSSION TO MY LEFT MS. MARCUCCI.

I'M GOING TO SAY, YOU KNOW, WHEN I LOOK AT THIS, I'M NOT NECESSARILY OPPOSED TO THE MOTION THAT'S PRESENTED, BUT I WILL SAY I DO HAVE SOME CONCERNS WITH MR. POMPA'S ATTENDANCE AT MEETINGS.

AND YOU KNOW, I'M GLAD THAT HE CAME HERE TONIGHT AND I HOPE THAT HE WILL TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY. YOU KNOW, IF HE DOES GET ELECTED TO THE BOARD AND SHOW UP FOR THE MEETINGS BECAUSE I CONSIDER THIS TO BE VERY IMPORTANT.

I WILL SAY THAT THE TAD BOARD, I'VE GOTTEN A CHANCE TO KNOW SOME OF THEM AND TALK TO THEM ON THE PHONE. THEY'VE BEEN ABLE TO ANSWER MY QUESTIONS AND BEEN VERY RESPONSIVE.

AND SO THAT'S THE ONLY ONE THAT I'M A LITTLE BIT CONCERNED ABOUT.

BUT AGAIN, BEING HERE TONIGHT, I'M HOPING THAT THAT WILL SHOW SOME COMMITMENT TO BEING THERE. SO I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT PUBLICLY BECAUSE I WANT EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THESE TO REPRESENT US WELL, BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT THAT THE BOARD HAS DONE.

I'M VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE CHANGES THAT HAVE BEEN MADE.

I'M VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE WORK THAT THEY'VE BEEN DOING, BUT THERE'S STILL A LOT OF WORK THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE AND I WANT THEM TO TAKE IT VERY, VERY SERIOUSLY.

THANK YOU. ANYONE ELSE ON MY LEFT, TO MY RIGHT? ANY COMMENTS DISCUSSION? HEARING NONE, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION, PLEASE USE THE SOUND VOTE OF AYE.

AYE.

ALL THOSE OPPOSED, PLEASE SAY NO.

NO.

MOTION PASSES FIVE-ONE.

MOVING ON TO ELEVEN POINT THREE CONSIDERATION AND APPROVAL OF ADDENDUMS NINE THROUGH 12.

MAY I PLEASE RECEIVE A MOTION SECOND.

MS. THOMAS, MS. MARCUCCI.

ANY QUESTIONS, DR.

CANTU OR MR. BROGDON, ANYONE WANT TO SHARE? COME ON UP. PRESIDENT NEWSOM, SUPERINTENDENT CANTU, THIS GIVES US THE ABILITY TO ENGAGE HUCKABEE, OUR ARCHITECT, THESE ARE FOUR AMENDMENTS TO THEIR EXISTING CONTRACT FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE IMPROVEMENTS TO LAKE RIDGE DRIVEWAY IN RESPONSE TO THE WIDENING OF DAY MIAR. THIS IS ALSO A DESIGN CONSULTANT SERVICES FOR CROSS TIMBERS AND DAVIS FINE ARTS ACADEMY, AS WELL AS THE DESIGN SERVICES TO REPAIR THE DAMAGES CAUSED DUE TO THE SOIL SHIFTING AT THE TIMBER VIEW FIELDHOUSE.

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

AYE.

ALL THOSE OPPOSED, PLEASE SAY NO.

A MOTION PASSES SIX-ZERO.

[01:05:04]

MOVING ON TO 11.4, CONSIDERATION AND APPROVAL OF RESOLUTION 22-13, CONVEYING THE LOCAL SCHOOL HEALTH AND CONVENING THE LOCAL SCHOOL HEALTH ADVISORY COUNCIL.

MAY I PLEASE RECEIVE A A MOTION MS. MARCUCCI, MR. CANEDY. ANY QUESTIONS OR DISCUSSION DR.

CANTU? OR YES, JUST AS A REMINDER, THERE ARE TWO NEW LAWS HOUSE BILL FIFTEEN TWENTY FIVE AND SENATE BILL NINE, AND THIS RESOLUTION IS JUST A PART OF THAT COMPLIANCE THAT REQUIRES OPEN MEETINGS FOR A COUPLE OF TOPICS OF DISCUSSION FOR THE SHAC COMMITTEE.

AND THIS IS THIS RESOLUTION DEALS ACTUALLY WITH THE HB 15 25, AND THERE'LL BE ANOTHER RESOLUTION DEALING WITH THE SENATE BILL NINE COMING IN THE SPRING.

MR. WRIGHT, IS THERE ANYTHING YOU'D LIKE TO ADD? NO YOU COVERED IT VERY WELL.

IT'S IT IS A, THIS RESOLUTION ALLOWS FOR THE SHAC COMMITTEE TO START THE WORK IN OPEN SESSIONS.

THEY WILL. THEY WILL BE COMING BACK TO YOU TO PRESENT WHAT THE SHAC COMMITTEE HAS, JUST WHAT THEIR DETERMINATION IS ON HUMAN SEXUALITY INSTRUCTION.

BUT THIS RESOLUTION HAS TO BE PASSED BEFORE THEY CAN ACTUALLY DO THE WORK.

AND AS A REMINDER, THOSE RECOMMENDATIONS THEN WILL COME OUT OF THAT AND TO THE BOARD FOR APPROVAL. CORRECT? ANY OTHER DISCUSSION FROM THE BOARD QUESTIONS? HEARING NO FURTHER QUESTIONS.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION, PLEASE USE THE SOUND VOTE OF AYE.

AYE. ALL OF THOSE OPPOSED, PLEASE SAY NO.

MOTION PASSES SIX-ZERO.

MOVING ON TO ELEVEN POINT FIVE CONSIDERATION AND APPROVAL OF THE FIRST READING OF ONE 18 LOCAL POLICY UPDATE.

MAY I PLEASE RECEIVE A MOTION, MS., THOMAS AND MS. FARRAR.

DR. CANTU OR MR. WRIGHT, SOMEONE FROM A POLICY COMMITTEE.

MR. WRIGHT. ABSOLUTELY.

SO I WOULD TRADITIONALLY I WOULD TALK ABOUT JUST THE MAJOR CHANGES IN CQB LOCAL POLICY.

IT'S ABOUT CYBERSECURITY.

IT JUST GIVES THE SUPERINTENDENT TO THE AUTHORITY TO MAKE DECISIONS ON CYBERSECURITY, AND IT STRIKES THROUGH THE ANNUAL TRAINING THAT HAS TO OCCUR FOR ALL EMPLOYEES.

DFE IS ABOUT RESIGNATIONS.

ALL IT IS DOING IS CLEARING UP WHO THE RESIGNATION HAS TO GO TO SO THAT IT IS OFFICIAL.

DP LOCAL POLICY IS THE ONE THAT TALKS ABOUT OR DETERMINES THAT THE COUNSELOR MUST BE WORKING AT LEAST 80 PERCENT OF THEIR TIME IN WHAT WE CONSIDER COUNSELING TYPE ACTIVITIES.

EHAA, WHICH IS WHAT YOU JUST TALKED ABOUT IN THE SHACK FOR THE SHACK RESOLUTION, THAT POLICY AND A RESOLUTION GO HAND IN HAND ABOUT THE HUMAN SEXUALITY INSTRUCTION AND THE STEPS THAT HAVE TO TAKE PLACE.

EXCUSE ME EIE IS TWO THINGS.

ONE WOULD BE IT'S A CHANGE FROM JUST KINDERGARTEN TO FIRST GRADE, IT ADDS SECOND GRADE FOR PROMOTION IS GOING TO BE SATISFACTORY FOR PERFORMANCE INSTEAD OF GRADE REPORT CARD BASED.

AND THEN WHAT IT DOES IS IT MOVES ALL OF THE STRICKEN READ NOTES TO E.H.

I'M SORRY, EBHC OR IT IS STRICKEN BECAUSE IT IS NOW OUTDATED BECAUSE OF HOUSE BILL 4545 AND THEN FEA IS ABOUT EXCUSED ABSENCES.

THEY'VE GIVEN ANOTHER EXCUSE FOR PARENTS THAT NEED TO TAKE ONE DAY OUT TO GIVE

[01:10:02]

TO GO GET A DRIVER'S LICENSE.

YEAH. SO THAT IS THE THE GIST OF THE MAIN POLICY CHANGES.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, DR.

CANTU ANYTHING ELSE? ANY BOARD MEMBERS, ANY QUESTIONS? MS. MARCUCCI. YES, ONE THING I WANTED TO SAY IS, YOU KNOW, THE STATE NEEDS TO GET IT TOGETHER A LITTLE BIT MORE. I HATE THAT WE HAVE TO GIVE AN EXCUSED ABSENCE SO KIDS CAN GET THEIR LICENSE. BUT AS A PARENT, I SO APPRECIATE THAT JUST TO THAT LAST ONE.

BUT ANYWAY, MY QUESTION WAS WITH SOME LOCAL POLICY THAT WE HAVE IN THERE THAT TALKS A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE HIRING OF PRINCIPALS.

IT'S DP LOCAL AND IT ELIMINATES THE THREE YEAR REQUIREMENT AS A TEACHER FOR A PRINCIPAL IN THAT POLICY.

I JUST WANTED TO KNOW A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THAT AND BECAUSE I LIKE OUR PRINCIPALS HAVING TEACHING EXPERIENCE.

SO IN THAT, I'M SORRY IN THAT IN THAT CHANGE, IT IS JUST A CLEAN UP OF WHAT TASB WANTS TO DO. THE TEXAS NOT EDUCATION CODE.

ADMINISTRATIVE CODE STILL REQUIRES THAT ADMINISTRATORS HAVE TO HAVE SO MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE. THEY TASB WOULD RATHER HAVE US PUT THAT IN THE JOB DESCRIPTION OR INTO OUR REGULATIONS ONLINE INSTEAD OF BEING IN LOCAL POLICY, BUT IT HAS NOT CHANGED.

OKAY, THANK YOU FOR THAT. IF I COULD INTERJECT, THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT TO US AS WELL AND SO WE DON'T INTEND TO CHANGE THAT EITHER.

THANK YOU. I APPRECIATE THAT.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FROM THE BOARD? I HAD ONE QUESTION FOR YOU, DR.

MR. WRIGHT? EIE THE KINDERGARTEN, THE SECOND GRADE PROMOTION.

I GUESS I'D LIKE A LITTLE MORE INFORMATION ON THAT.

I DO KNOW THAT THERE'S A LOT OF STUFF THAT WE KIND OF WEIGH HEAVILY ON THIRD GRADE.

SO CAN YOU TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHY THIS IS GOOD? MICHELLE? SURE, I CAN ADDRESS THAT.

WE CURRENTLY HAVE STANDARDS BASED GRADING IN K ONE AND TWO, AND SO THIS WOULD ALLOW US TO CONTINUE STANDARDS BASED GRADING UP THROUGH SECOND GRADE AND STANDARDS BASED GRADING IS JUST NOT A WAY TO SAY ALL THE KIDS ARE PASSING AND EVERYTHING'S GREAT.

IT IS REALLY HEAVILY RUBRIC DRIVEN AND IT ACTUALLY GIVES PARENTS VERY SPECIFIC FEEDBACK.

AND AS OPPOSED TO IN MATH, YOUR KID BEING AT AN 82, THEY MAY BE SATISFACTORY OR THEY MAY BE PROGRESSING OR BEGINNING.

THERE ARE DIFFERENT LEVELS BASED ON THE RUBRIC.

AND SO IN TERMS OF INFORMING PARENTS ABOUT PROGRESS, IT'S MUCH MORE INFORMATIVE THAN A GRADE, A NUMERIC GRADE.

THE GOOD THING IS THAT OUR KINDER AND FIRST GRADE STUDENTS AND PARENTS ARE ALREADY USED TO THIS. AND SO ROLLING IT UP TO SECOND GRADE WILL KEEP IT MORE CLEAN.

AND THEN AS WE MOVE INTO THIRD GRADE WHERE WE HAVE STAR, THEN THAT'S WHERE WE'LL START SEEING THE TRANSITION TO NUMERICAL GRADES.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

MS. FARRAR. SO I SHARED THE SAME CONCERN ALSO WITH MRS. NEWSOM. I HAD A GREAT TALK WITH MRS. COBB EARLIER TODAY AND SHE KIND OF BROKE IT DOWN FOR ME.

SHE ALSO SENT ME A CHART BECAUSE I HAD THE SAME CONCERNS AS THERE WAS A LOT PUT ON THIRD GRADE AS FAR AS THE TESTING AND, YOU KNOW, JUST SEEMED LIKE A LOT.

SO SHE SENT ME, IT REALLY ACTUALLY BREAKS IT DOWN EVEN MORE.

SO INSTEAD OF GETTING, YOU KNOW, YOUR CHILD HAS A 80 IN MATH OR, LET'S SAY, LANGUAGE ARTS, BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT OF COMPONENTS TO THAT.

WELL, THIS TYPE OF GRADING SYSTEM ACTUALLY BREAKS DOWN THE DIFFERENT COMPONENTS.

AND SO YOU CAN SEE REALLY WHERE YOUR CHILD IS STRUGGLING IN ONE SECTION OF LANGUAGE ARTS.

THEY MIGHT BE PROFICIENT IN ONE, BUT STRUGGLING IN ANOTHER.

SO IT KIND OF BREAKS IT DOWN EVEN MORE, WHICH I DID LIKE THAT.

ONE THING THAT WE DID TALK ABOUT WAS MAKING SURE THAT PARENTS WERE AWARE WHAT THE DIFFERENT LETTERS MEANT BECAUSE I WASN'T EXACTLY SURE SHE SHE DIDN'T SEND ME A CHART.

AND SO WE HAD TALKED ABOUT POSSIBLY PUTTING THAT ON THE WEBSITE OR SOMETHING SO PARENTS CAN REFER BACK TO THAT. THEY ARE THEY ARE TOLD WHAT IT IS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR, WHICH IS SO THEY CAN REFER BACK TO IT.

BUT IT DOES BREAK DOWN THOSE CORE SUBJECTS IN DETAIL A LOT MORE THAN JUST THEIR MAKING AN 80 IN LANGUAGE ARTS AND WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? ARE THEY READING OR ARE THEY JUST COMPREHENDING OR? SO I DID SHARE THE SAME CONCERNED WITH YOU.

I DO, DO YOU FEEL MUCH BETTER AFTER DOING SOME MORE RESEARCH ON IT AND THEN JUST KIND OF HAVING SOME MORE IN-DEPTH CONVERSATIONS.

AND ONE THING THAT I WOULD LIKE TO ADD ABOUT THE WEBSITE IS THAT WE ARE ALREADY WORKING ON CREATING A WEBSITE THAT HAS A DEEP DESCRIPTION AND SO PARENTS CAN HAVE A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF THAT THAT WILL BE LINKED TO THE WEBSITE.

AND WE'RE ACTUALLY WORKING ON THAT PROCESS NOW.

YEAH, ANOTHER THING I LIKED ON THE CHART ALSO, IT WOULD SAY WHAT WHAT IT HAS TO BE CHECKED

[01:15:04]

OFF OR WHAT THEY HAVE TO MASTER TO EVEN BE ABLE TO MOVE TO THE NEXT SECTION TO PROGRESS IN THAT GRADING PROCESS.

SO. GREAT.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INFORMATION.

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

AYE. ALL OF THOSE OPPOSED, PLEASE SAY NO MOTION PASSES SIX-ZERO.

MOVING ON TO 11.6, CONSIDERATION AND APPROVAL OF THE 2022-2023 DISTRICT CALENDAR.

THAT'S THE CONSIDERATION.

IT'S OPTION TWO FOR THOSE LISTENING.

ALL OF THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION PLEASE USE THE SOUND OF AYE.

AYE.. ALL THOSE OPPOSED, PLEASE SAY NO, MOTION PASSES SIX-ZERO.

MOVING ON TO NUMBER ELEVEN POINT SEVEN, CONSIDERATION AND APPROVAL OF THE CLASS SIZE WAIVER. MAY I PLEASE RECEIVE A MOTION.

SO MOVE, WE'RE GOING TO GO WITH MS. THOMAS.

SECOND, MS. FARRAR.

DR. CANTU, DO YOU GUYS WANT TO SHARE A LITTLE INFORMATION? I'D ACTUALLY LIKE DR. STOKER TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF INFORMATION ABOUT THE WAIVERS.

YES, THANK YOU. SO AS A REMINDER, BOARD MEMBERS, THE EDUCATION CODE REQUIRES THAT MANY OF OUR ELEMENTARY CLASSES K THROUGH FOUR EXCEED TWENTY TWO TO ONE.

WE REQUEST A WAIVER FROM THE STATE.

SO WE'RE ASKING YOU TO CONSIDER THAT THIS EVENING.

AT THIS POINT, WE'RE ASKING FOR A TOTAL OF EIGHT WAIVERS, WHICH MEANS EIGHT TOTAL STUDENTS. THOSE EIGHT STUDENTS ARE AT FIVE CAMPUSES AND WE ARE GETTING CLOSE TO THE POINT WHERE IN THOSE CLASSROOMS THEY WILL HAVE REACHED DAY 30 AND BEING OVER TWENTY TWO TO ONE.

SO WE ASK YOUR REQUEST OR REQUEST DAVIE THIS EVENING YOUR CONSIDERATION IN APPROVING THIS REQUEST FROM US.

THANK YOU. ANY QUESTIONS OR DISCUSSION FROM THE BOARD TO MY RIGHT? TO MY LEFT? I'M JUST REITERATING THAT WHAT MS. STOKER SAID, IT'S FOR EIGHT STUDENTS, IT'S NOT DIFFERENT.

YEAH, EIGHT DIFFERENT CLASSROOMS. ALL RIGHT. 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.

IS THERE ANYTHING ON ITEM 13 THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS WITH THE SUPERINTENDENT AT THIS TIME? I WOULD.

MS. MARCUCCI. THANK YOU.

I'D LIKE TO DISCUSS 13-9 IN MY SD COMMITTEES REPORT.

WHEN I WAS REVIEWING THAT, I NOTICED THAT THE DISTRICT SAFETY AND SECURITY MEETING THAT THERE NEXT MEETING ISN'T SCHEDULED UNTIL FEBRUARY 17TH, 2022.

[01:20:05]

SO I WANTED TO GET A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THAT MEANS FOR THE OTHER SAFETY, YOU KNOW, MEETING THAT WE HAD IN REGARDS TO THE INCIDENT AT TIMBER VIEW.

YOU KNOW HOW THAT MIGHT AFFECT THE TIMELINE FOR RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE BOARD AND YOU KNOW THE ACTION THAT'S HAPPENING THERE? SURE. SO JUST KIND OF AGAIN, AS A POINT OF CLARITY, WE HAVE OUR SAFETY PROCEDURE PLAN COMMITTEE THAT'S RELATED TO WAS REINSTITUTED BACK AFTER OCTOBER 6TH.

WE ACTUALLY HAVE ONE MORE MEETING THAT WAS AN OPTIONAL MEETING, BUT IT IS GOING TO TAKE PLACE AND IT'S GOING TO BE THIS THURSDAY AND THAT HOPEFULLY WILL BE OUR FINAL MEETING.

AND JEFF BROGDON AND DONALD WILLIAMS HAD THAT COMMITTEE UP.

THAT'LL BE THIS THURSDAY.

AT THAT POINT, THOSE RECOMMENDATIONS WILL GO TO OUR DISTRICT SAFETY COMMITTEE, HEADED UP BY BRUNO DIAZ.

THAT MEETING HE IS GOING TO BE CALLING A SPECIAL MEETING IN JANUARY.

DAVID WRIGHT I'M LOOKING AT YOU, THAT IS STILL THE PLAN.

WE WILL BE HAVING A SPECIAL MEETING CALLED IN JANUARY TO REVIEW THE RECOMMENDATIONS COMING OUT OF THE THE SAFETY PROCEDURE COMMITTEE AND THEN WE HOPE TO COME FORWARD ON IN FEBRUARY WITH RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE BOARD.

I APPRECIATE THAT. I KNOW THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF WORK THAT'S GOING INTO IT AND I DON'T WANT TO RUSH THE PROCESS, BUT I DID WANT TO MAKE SURE I HAD AN UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT OUR PROPOSED TIMELINE IS.

BUT IF THAT NEEDS TO CHANGE, YOU KNOW, IF YOU COULD JUST LET US KNOW BECAUSE LIKE I SAID, I DO APPRECIATE THE THOUGHT AND THE WORK THAT'S GOING INTO IT, BUT I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE, YOU KNOW, IMPLEMENT IT TIMELY, BUT NOT HASTILY.

RIGHT. THANK YOU. ANY OTHER ITEMS THAT YOU'D LIKE TO DISCUSS WITH THE SUPERINTENDENT AT THIS TIME THAT MOVES US TO ITEM NUMBER 14, ADJOURN WITH NO OTHER BUSINESS TO DISCUSS.

WE WILL ADJOURN AT 8:31 P.M.

THANK YOU FOR ATTENDING THIS EVENING.

HAVE A GOOD NIGHT!
