EVERY JANUARY ACROSS THE STATE, ACROSS THE STATE DISTRICT'S HONOR AND RECOGNIZE THE DEDICATED COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS WHO SERVE AS SCHOOL BOARD TRUSTEES.

BOARD TRUSTEES PLAY AN ESSENTIAL ROLE IN EDUCATION BY WORKING WITH PARENTS, EDUCATORS AND COMMUNITIES TO ENSURE THAT OUR STUDENTS HAVE ACCESS TO HIGH QUALITY EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES THAT PREPARE THEM TO BE COLLEGE CAREER AND LIFE READY.

THIS YEAR'S SCHOOL BOARD RECOGNITION THEME RISING ABOVE THAT YOU CAN SEE UP THERE ON THE SCREENS, CELEBRATES THE SUCCESS OF SCHOOL BOARDS IN NAVIGATING THE UNPRECEDENTED CHALLENGES PRESENTED TO THEM OVER THE LAST YEAR.

TONIGHT, WE WILL HONOR OUR SEVEN SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS FOR THEIR DEDICATION AND SERVICE TO THE MANSFIELD ISD COMMUNITY.

WE BEGAN OUR RECOGNITION ACTUALLY A LITTLE BIT EARLIER PRIOR TO THE MEETING WITH A SPECIAL DINNER PREPARED BY THE CULINARY ARTS STUDENTS OF THE BEN BARBER INNOVATION ACADEMY. AND IT WAS FANTASTIC, AND WE HOPE WE DON'T FALL ASLEEP UP HERE.

LET ME TELL YOU, AS YOU LOOK AROUND THE ROOM TONIGHT, YOU'RE ALSO GOING TO SEE ARTWORK FROM ALL OF OUR STUDENTS ACROSS OUR CAMPUSES, INCLUDING QUEST AND ACE AFTER SCHOOL CARE PROGRAMS, RECOGNIZING AND THANKING OUR INCREDIBLE SCHOOL BOARD.

SO THANK YOU TO OUR STUDENTS AND STAFF WHO PUT THOSE TOGETHER.

AND SO AT THIS TIME, THOUGH, I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE THE [INAUDIBLE] CHOIR UP FOR A SPECIAL PERFORMANCE FOR OUR BOARD.

[00:07:15]

I BELIEVE IN THE SUN, EVEN WHEN IT'S NOT SHINING AND I BELIEVE IN GOD EVEN WHEN THERE'S NO ONE THERE. AND I BELIEVE IN GOD EVEN WHEN HE IS SILENT. I BELIEVE THROUGH ANY TRIAL, THAT THERE ALWAYS A WAY.

BUT SOMETIMES IN THE SUFFERING AND ALL THE DESPAIR. MY HEART CRIES FOR SHELTER TO KNOW SOMEONE'S THERE. BUT A VOICE RISES WITHIN ME SAYING HOLD ON MY CHILD I'LL GIVE YOU STRENGTH I'LL GIVE YOU HOPE JUST STAY A LITTLE WHILE. I BELIEVE IN THE SUN EVEN WHEN IT'S NOT SHINING AND I BELIEVE IN GOD EVEN WHEN THERE IS NO ONE THERE. AND I BELIEVE IN GOD EVEN WHEN HE IS SILENT I BELIEVE IN ANY TRIAL THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY.

[00:10:41]

MAY THERE SOMEDAY BE SUNSHINE. MAY THERE SOMEDAY BE HAPPINESS. MAY THERE SOMEDAY BE LOVE. MAY THERE SOMEDAY BE PEACE. [APPLAUSE] WE JUST WANT TO THANK.

THANK YOU TO ALL THE SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS FOR ALL THE WORK YOU ALL PUT IN ALL THE HOURS YOU ALL SPENT WORKING, MAKING SURE THAT WE, AS THE STUDENTS, HAVE THE BEST EXPERIENCE WE CAN. AND I REALLY APPRECIATE HOW YOU ALL WORK HARD IN THE BACKGROUND TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE THE BEST SCHOOL EXPERIENCE THAT WE CAN.

I KNOW IT'S BEEN A DIFFICULT IN THESE LAST FEW YEARS AND YOU STILL COME EVERY DAY.

YOU SHOW UP IN OUR COMMUNITY, AT OUR SCHOOLS, AT EVENTS, AND YOU JUST MAKE SURE THAT WE KNOW THAT YOU CARE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE WAY THAT YOU REPRESENT US WELL.

FROM A PARENT PERSPECTIVE, IT'S A GREAT PLACE TO REALLY LEARN AND LIVE.

FROM A STAFF PERSPECTIVE, IT'S A GREAT WAY TO TEACH.

AND WITH THE HELP AND SUPPORT FROM OUR SEVEN BOARD MEMBERS, THEY'VE MADE THIS PLACE A GREAT PLACE TO BE AND GROW A FAMILY.

THANK YOU TO THE SCHOOL BOARD FOR REPRESENTING OUR SCHOOL SO WELL.

IN THE PAST TWO YEARS, I'VE LOVED COMING TO SCHOOL AND I'M EXCITED TO SEE WHERE IT GOES IN THE NEXT TWO YEARS.

I ALSO WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK I SEE AS A MEMBER OF STUDENT COUNCIL AND BEING ON THE GOLF TEAM, ALL THE THINGS YOU DO TO MAKE EXTRACURRICULARS POSSIBLE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO THE BOARD MEMBERS SO MUCH FOR SUPPORTING OUR LIBRARIES AND OUR TEACHERS DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME.

I ALSO WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING US TO HAVE THE RESOURCES TO MAKE THE LIBRARY A SPECIAL PLACE FOR STUDENTS AND A PLACE THAT TEACHERS WANT TO BRING THEIR CLASSES DOWN.

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR ALL THAT YOU DO.

ALTHOUGH THE ISD HAS HAD A LOT OF CHALLENGES, YOU HAVE STILL GOT A LOT OF OPPORTUNITY TO SUCCEED. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU ALL FOR EVERYTHING THAT YOU'VE DONE FOR US, AND I HOPE THAT YOU CONTINUE TO DO SO IN THE FUTURE.

I WOULD DEFINITELY LIKE TO THANK YOU GUYS, OUR SCHOOL BOARD FOR ALL THAT YOU DO, ESPECIALLY IN TERMS OF HELPING MYSELF AND THE STAFF AROUND MANSFIELD AS WELL AS OUR STUDENTS. YOU DEFINITELY HAVE KEPT OUR HEALTH AND SAFETY IN MIND DURING THESE TRYING TIMES, AND YOUR EFFORTS HAVEN'T GONE UNNOTICED.

[APPLAUSE] SO AT THIS TIME, I'D LIKE TO ASK ELIZABETH [INAUDIBLE] TO COME FORWARD AND CONTINUE ON WITH TONIGHT'S RECOGNITIONS.

AND THANK YOU AGAIN TO OUR AMAZING SCHOOL BOARD FOR YOUR DEDICATION AND LEADERSHIP, FOR OUR COMMUNITY AND OUR STUDENTS AND OUR STAFF.

I AM ALSO VERY EXCITED TO BE UP HERE TONIGHT BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO HAVE THIS SPECIAL RECOGNITION AS PART OF THE BOARD MEETING.

IT'S ACTUALLY BEEN TWO YEARS SINCE WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BRING OUR SCHOOL BOARD SUPERSTARS. I SEE THAT OUR BOARD MEMBERS AND DR.

CANTU HAVE ALREADY JOINED US UP IN THE FRONT.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE SCHOOL BOARD SUPERSTARS EACH MONTH, FOR THE REMAINDER OF THIS YEAR, WE WILL RECOGNIZE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS AS SCHOOL BOARD SUPERSTARS FOR THEIR OUTSTANDING CITIZENSHIP.

THESE YOUNG STUDENTS ARE CHOSEN FROM THEIR CAMPUS BASED ON THEIR VIRTUES OF OUTSTANDING CHARACTER, CITIZENSHIP, FAIRNESS, HONESTY, KINDNESS, RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY AND TRUSTWORTHINESS. PARENTS AND STUDENTS, I SEE YOU IN THE FRONT ROW.

OK, PARENTS, YOU WANT TO GRAB YOUR PICTURES.

[00:20:05]

AND WHILE YOU'RE DOING THAT, WE ALSO WANT TO GIVE A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO OUR PARENTS, AUNTS AND UNCLES, GRANDPARENTS WHO ARE IN THE IN THE AUDIENCE TONIGHT SUPPORTING THESE SUPERSTARS.

WE KNOW THAT YOU ARE AN IMPORTANT PART IN WHAT MAKES THEM SUCH YOUNG LEADERS AND WE WANT TO THANK YOU AND RECOGNIZE YOU AS WELL.

SO LET'S GIVE THOSE PARENTS AND GUARDIANS AND GRANDPARENTS AND AUNTS AND UNCLES A ROUND OF APPLAUSE.

AND ONE LAST ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR OUR SCHOOL BOARD SUPERSTARS.

GOT A FEW MORE PICTURES.

OK. THANK YOU, SCHOOL BOARD SUPERSTARS, YOU GUYS CAN GO BACK AND SIT WITH YOUR PARENTS.

THIS WILL BRING US TO OUR NEXT RECOGNITION.

OUR NEXT RECOGNITION IS ALMA MARTINEZ, INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL STUDENT [INAUDIBLE] JOHN, WHO STARTED THE RACE TO KINDNESS CAMPAIGN TO BRING FOOD TO THOSE IN NEED.

TOYS FOR KIDS IN HOSPITALS AND, MOST RECENTLY, BOOKS FOR CHILDREN IN THE COMMUNITY.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT [INAUDIBLE] IMPACT.

[APPLAUSE] AND A NATIONAL SPEECH CONTEST, AND HE WON PART OF THE PROJECT WAS FOR HIM TO USE THE PRIZE MONEY TO DO HIS OWN PROJECT ACT OF KINDNESS.

HE DUBBED IT THE RACE TO KINDNESS.

MY FIRST ONE WAS COLLECTING SIX HUNDRED NINETEEN TOYS FOR THE CHILDREN'S HEALTH HOSPITAL IN DALLAS, AND MY SECOND ONE WAS COLLECTING A HUNDRED THOUSAND MEALS BY THANKSGIVING AND WE WERE ABLE TO REACH BOTH OF THOSE GOALS.

WE'VE TALKED FROM TIME TO TIME ABOUT WHAT'S A WORD THAT'S BIGGER THAN PROUD.

RIGHT? IT'S IT'S AN INDESCRIBABLE FEELING.

IT'S NOT REALLY ABOUT ME.

IT NEVER HAS BEEN, AND IT NEVER WILL BE.

IT'S ABOUT BRINGING KINDNESS TO THE FOREFRONT.

AND I THINK THAT WHILE IT WAS GREAT TO SEE ME NEXT TO ALL OF THESE BIG NAMES AND BIG STARS, IT WAS ALSO IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT THE 100000 PEOPLE THAT WERE ABLE TO GET MEALS WERE KNOWN.

THEY ARE IMPORTANT.

I THINK HE FULLY HAS UNDERSTOOD THE IMPACT OF OF WHAT ONE SIMPLE ACT CAN MAKE, BUT ALSO JUST THE POWER OF COMMUNITY COMING TOGETHER BECAUSE HIM RUNNING IN THE RACE TO KINDNESS WAS CERTAINLY NOT SOMETHING THAT HE DID ALONE.

AND IT CERTAINLY INVOLVED PEOPLE FROM ALL ACROSS OUR COMMUNITY, ALL OVER THE COUNTRY AND ALL OVER THE WORLD. I'D LIKE TO INVITE RYAN UP TO BE RECOGNIZED FOR HIS LEADERSHIP, KINDNESS AND HIS HEART FOR SERVICE.

[APPLAUSE] AND I WANT TO SHARE A FEW MORE PIECES ABOUT [INAUDIBLE] JOURNEY AS WE AS WE SEE HIM TAKE THAT PICTURE AND THE PRIDE THAT HE HAS IN HIS LEADERSHIP.

NOT ONLY HAS HE HAD THE RACE TO KINDNESS, BUT HE RECENTLY WAS INVITED TO BE ON THE ELLEN SHOW, WHERE HE MET KATY PERRY BECAUSE SHE WAS GUEST HOSTING AND HE WAS AWARDED $10000 TO SUPPORT HIS RACE TO KINDNESS CAMPAIGN.

BUT IT DOESN'T STOP THERE.

DISNEY ALSO RECENTLY SURPRISED [INAUDIBLE] AND HIS FAMILY WITH A TRIP TO THE WALT DISNEY WORLD RESORT AND APPEARANCE THE CHRISTMAS DAY PARADE JUST THIS PAST DECEMBER.[APPLAUSE] BUT HIS STORY KEEPS GOING.

LAST WEEK, IT WAS ANNOUNCED THAT [INAUDIBLE] IS A TOP FIVE FINALIST FOR TIME MAGAZINE'S KID OF THE YEAR.

[APPLAUSE] AND I KNOW THAT WE WILL ALL BE WATCHING WHEN THE FINAL WINNER IS ANNOUNCED ON FEBRUARY 9TH DURING THE KID OF THE YEAR SHOW ON NICKELODEON, AND YOU'VE GOT A WHOLE COMMUNITY CHEERING FOR YOU BEHIND YOU [INAUDIBLE], WE'RE SO PROUD OF YOU.

LET'S GIVE [INAUDIBLE] ONE MORE ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR THESE AMAZING HONORS.

[APPLAUSE] ONE MORE PICTURE FROM MOM AND DAD.

OK, THANK YOU AND CONGRATULATIONS [INAUDIBLE]. [APPLAUSE] AND AT THIS TIME I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE UP OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS, PHILIP O'NEILL, FOR OUR LAST

[00:25:02]

RECOGNITION OF THIS EVENING.

I KNOW HE'S OUT THERE, HE'S COMING.

HE'S COMING. HE'S COMING.

YOU GUYS BE NICE, DON'T TACKLE ANYONE.

IS THAT EVERYBODY? AWESOME. WE TOLD THEM ALL THEY HAD, THE ONLY JOB THEY HAD WAS TO COME IN HERE AND LOOK GOOD, SO THEY'RE DOING A GOOD JOB OF IT BEING SUCCESSFUL.

FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW.

THE SUMMIT HIGH SCHOOL JAGUAR FOOTBALL TEAM ADVANCED TO THE 5A DIVISION ONE STATE SEMIFINALS.

[APPLAUSE] SO YOU'VE HEARD ME SAY IT BEFORE, IT'S A REALLY DIFFICULT THING TO DO, PARTICULARLY IN ALL SPORTS, BUT PARTICULARLY IN FOOTBALL, TO WIN A STATE CHAMPIONSHIP, AND THESE GUYS WERE ON THE CUSP OF THAT TWO YEARS IN A ROW.

THE JAGUARS ADVANCE TO THE PLAYOFFS FOLLOWING A SIX TO ONE, SIX AND ONE DISTRICT RECORD, FINISHING AS THE DISTRICT RUNNER UP.

THEY BEAT [INAUDIBLE] BY A SCORE OF 38 TO 14 IN THE FIRST ROUND.

THEY BEAT EL PASO CHAPMAN 56 TO 67 IN THE SECOND ROUND.

THEY BEAT MIDLOTHIAN HIGH SCHOOL IN THE REGIONAL SEMIFINALS, 28 TO 20.

MIDLOTHIAN WAS ONE OF THEIR DISTRICT OPPONENTS, SO THEY HAD TO BEAT THEM A SECOND TIME.

THEY BEAT COLLIERVILLE HERITAGE 21 TO 9 IN THE REGIONAL FINAL, MAKING THEM THE REGIONAL CHAMPIONS AND COLLIERVILLE HERITAGE WAS THE TEAM THAT WON THE DISTRICT, SO THEY BEAT THEM THE SECOND TIME THEY PLAYED THEM.

AND THEN ULTIMATELY THEY LOST A COLLEGE STATION IN THE STATE SEMIFINAL BY A SCORE OF 28 TO 21 CLOSE GAME.

SORRY TO BRING THAT UP, BUT IT'S A PART OF THE STORY.

WE'RE ALL AWARE OF HOW AMAZING OUR STUDENT ATHLETES ARE.

BUT THE OTHER COMPONENT OF THIS TEAM THAT IS AMAZING IS THE COACHING STAFF LED BY COACH SHANNON HALL, COACH HALL, WILL YOU RAISE YOUR HANDS SO PEOPLE KNOW WHO YOU ARE? [APPLAUSE] I WOULD PLACE THIS COACHING STAFF AGAINST ANY COACHING STAFF IN THE COUNTRY AND HOW THEY BOTH LOVE THEIR TEAM AND PUSH THEIR PLAYERS TO BE THEIR BEST. AT THIS TIME, I WANT TO READ OFF.

I CAN'T READ OFF ALL THE PLAYERS NAMES.

THERE'S TOO MANY OF THEM, BUT I DO WANT TO READ OFF THE COACHING STAFFS NAME COACH GREG CHATHAM. PARDON ME, AND IF YOU'RE HERE, IF YOU'LL RAISE YOUR HAND.

COACH CHATHAM IS THE STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING.

COACH MARIO [INAUDIBLE].

IS HE HERE? THERE YOU GO.

CARTER THOMPSON, JACOBY SANDERS, RONNIE ROBERSON, JOHN ROBERTS, CAMERON TROTTER, JORDAN [INAUDIBLE], JAYSON CALHOUN, C.J.

[INAUDIBLE], [INAUDIBLE], KENDRICK POPE, WHO IS THE OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR.

HARRY [INAUDIBLE], WHO IS THE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR.

AND AGAIN COACH SHANNON HALL, LET'S GIVE THOSE GUYS A ROUND OF APPLAUSE.

[APPLAUSE] COACH HALL CONSTANTLY PREACHES TO HIS STAFF TO MAKE DEPOSITS OF PRAISE SO THAT WHEN IT COMES TIME TO COACH HIS PLAYERS TOWARDS IMPROVEMENT, YOU HAVE EARNED THE RIGHT TO DO SO. THIS STAFF CONSTANTLY MAKES DEPOSITS POSITIVE PRAISE TOWARD TO THEIR STUDENTS ON A DAILY BASIS.

THE COACHING STAFF GENUINELY ARE COACHES OF TRANSFORMATION AND COACHES OF SIGNIFICANCE.

LET'S GIVE THE 2021 STATE SEMIFINAL 5A DIVISION ONE SUMMIT JAGUARS A BIG ROUND OF APPLAUSE. [APPLAUSE] SO IF YOU GUYS WILL FOLLOW THE LADY IN FRONT HERE, SHE'LL TACKLE YOU IF YOU

[00:30:02]

DON'T.

THANK YOU, GUYS.

[APPLAUSE] CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN TO THE SUMMIT FOOTBALL TEAM AND COACHING STAFF, AND THAT CONCLUDES THIS EVENING'S RECOGNITIONS, WHAT A JOY IT'S BEEN TO HAVE SO MANY STUDENTS BACK IN THE ROOM TO CELEBRATE IN PERSON.

WE WILL HOLD FOR JUST A MINUTE BECAUSE I KNOW THAT THERE ARE SOME CHILDREN OUT THERE THAT PROBABLY NEED TO CLEAN THEIR ROOM.

DO SOME HOMEWORK.

FEED THE DOG.

THANK YOU ALL. APPRECIATE IT.

I'M GOING TO GO BACK WITH CLEAN THEIR ROOM.

SO NOW'S A REALLY GOOD TIME FOR YOU TO GO.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO MAKE BED TIME, WE'D LOVE FOR YOU TO STAY, BUT WE UNDERSTAND IF YOU HAVE OTHER OBLIGATIONS.

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE DISTRICT TEAM AND TO THE TEAMS AT THE SCHOOLS AND EVERYBODY WHO PARTICIPATED AND GAVE A LITTLE BIT OF THEIR TIME AND ENERGY AND LOVE FOR SCHOOL BOARD APPRECIATION ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD AND MYSELF, WE REALLY WANT TO WANT TO SAY THANK YOU. IT WAS AMAZING.

AND YEAH, BETWEEN THE VIDEO AND THE STAR AWARDS, WHICH WE HAVEN'T DONE IN SO LONG, AND [INAUDIBLE] AND I CRIED AT THE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF GAME, SO I'M GOING TO TRY TO PULL MYSELF TOGETHER AND WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE ON.

SO BUT THANK YOU SO MUCH.

NONE OF THIS IS LOST ON US.

WHAT YOU ALSO PROBABLY DON'T SEE OUR LITTLE BAGS AND STACKS OF CARDS AND NOTES THAT KIDS AT THE SCHOOLS HAVE MADE FOR US AND THEY ARE THE SWEETEST THINGS YOU EVER SEE.

AND MOST OF US HAVE BOXES AND PILES AT HOME THAT WE KEEP BECAUSE IT REMINDS US WHY WE STAY UP LATE SOME NIGHTS AND GO AND DO THINGS AND SPEND TIME WITH THINGS LIKE THIS.

AND IT REALLY HAS BEEN TWO YEARS SINCE WE DID THE STAR AWARDS AND HAD KIDS HERE AT A BOARD MEETING. AND SO THAT WAS THAT WAS AMAZING.

THAT WAS AMAZING. SO THAT WAS GIFT ENOUGH.

WE SURE WOULD LOVE TO TAKE SOME MORE PICTURES FOR OUR PICTURE THAT YOU PUT ALL OVER THE PLACE. BUT ANYWAY, WE'LL DO THAT NEXT YEAR.

ALL RIGHT. MOVING ON.

THIS LEADS US TO SIX POINT ONE INSTRUCTIONAL FOCUS.

[6. Instructional Focus]

DR. CANTU.

YES, AT THIS TIME, I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE JENNIFER YOUNG, WHO IS ALREADY THERE BECAUSE SHE IS SO ON SPOT TO SHARE OUR MISD ANNUAL REPORT AND THEN WE'LL MOVE FROM THAT INTO THE PUBLIC HEARING. OK, THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH BEFORE I GET STARTED.

I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY LAST NIGHT TO ATTEND THE CITY COUNCIL MEETING, AND AT THE CITY COUNCIL MEETING THEY INTRODUCED [INAUDIBLE] AND HIS BROTHER AND HIS MOM AND DAD.

AND SO I WANTED TO SHARE SOMETHING THAT I LEARNED LAST NIGHT.

MOST OF YOU SAW [INAUDIBLE] GIVE DR.

CANTU A BOOK.

WELL, WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW IS THAT HE IS NOW AN AUTHOR AND HAS WRITTEN HIS OWN LEADERSHIP BOOK. AND SO THAT'S THE BOOK THAT HE SHARED WITH DR.

CANTU. SO I WANTED TO RECOGNIZE [INAUDIBLE] FOR NOT JUST BEING AN AMAZING KID, BUT ALSO NOW BEING AN AUTHOR.

SO I THOUGHT THAT WAS PRETTY COOL.

[APPLAUSE] THEY WERE TRYING TO LEAVE, BUT I TOLD HIM TO STAY FOR JUST A SECOND.

THANK YOU, GUYS.

WELL, TONIGHT I'M HERE TO PRESENT THE MISD THE ANNUAL REPORT AND TO HAVE THE PUBLIC HEARING. AND SO WHAT I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU IS THAT THE INFORMATION THAT YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR TONIGHT IS NOT NEW INFORMATION.

MUCH OF THIS INFORMATION HAS BEEN SHARED WITH YOU IN PREVIOUS BOARD REPORTS.

ALSO IN SUPERINTENDENT REPORTS AND OTHER ATTACHMENTS TO OUR BOARD AGENDAS.

[00:35:01]

BUT THIS MEETING TONIGHT, THIS PRESENTATION AND THE FOLLOWING PUBLIC HEARING FULFILLS A STATUTE THAT WERE REQUIRED TO MEET, AND SO I WILL SHARE THE PRESENTATION WITH YOU.

ALSO ON YOUR TABLES AND RECOGNITION OF BOARD APPRECIATION MONTH.

I'VE GIVEN YOU A 100 PAGE LITTLE BOOKLET THAT SUMMARIZES THE PRESENTATION HERE, SO THIS SHOULDN'T TAKE LONG, BUT THAT IS THE OFFICIAL ANNUAL REPORT FOR THOSE OF YOU WATCHING AT HOME. IT IS ATTACHED AS AN EXHIBIT ON THE AGENDA ITEMS AND SO YOU CAN PULL THAT UP AT HOME AS WELL. AND THEN ONCE I'M THROUGH WITH THE REPORT, PRESIDENT NEWSOM WILL OPEN UP A PUBLIC HEARING FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS.

AND SO THE ANNUAL REPORT IS ACTUALLY COMPRISED OF SIX INDIVIDUAL REPORTS.

WE HAVE THE WELL, WE HAVE THE TAPPER REPORT, THE PEIMS FINANCIAL REPORT, OUR DISTRICT ACCREDITATION STATUS REPORT, CAMPUS PERFORMANCE, OBJECTIVE REPORTS, REPORT ON VIOLENT OR CRIMINAL INCIDENTS AND THEN THE FINAL REPORT IS HOW OUR STUDENTS DO AND POST-SECONDARY INSTITUTIONS. SO THE FIRST REPORT IS THE TAPPER REPORT, AND THAT IS WHERE YOU FIND ALL OF OUR ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE DATA.

AND SO BACK IN JULY, I CAME TO YOU AND SHARED WITH YOU DETAILED REPORTS ON HOW WE DID GRADES THREE THROUGH EIGHT STAR AND EOC.

AND SO JUST AS A REMINDER, IN THE SPRING OF 2021, WE TOOK STATE TEST.

HOWEVER, WE WERE NOT RATED BECAUSE OF COVID, SO OUR LAST RATING THAT WE HAD AS A DISTRICT WAS A RATING OF A AND WE HAVE NOT BEEN RATED SINCE DUE TO COVID.

IN JULY, I SHARED WITH YOU THE GREEN IS GOOD SLIDE WHERE WE LOOKED AT EACH INDIVIDUAL GRADE, EACH INDIVIDUAL TEST AND LOOKED AT HOW WE COMPARE IT AS A DISTRICT TO THE REGION AND TO THE STATE.

AND SO THIS IS A SUMMARY SLIDE THAT SHOWS ALL OF THE TESTS COMBINED.

HOW WE DID IT APPROACHES, MEETS IN MASTERS AND YOU CAN SEE GREEN ANYWHERE WE'RE GREEN.

THAT MEANS WE'RE OUTPERFORMING THE REGION AND STATE, AND YOU CAN SEE THAT IN ALL AREAS, WE DID OUTPERFORM THE REGION AND STATE.

ALSO INCLUDED IN THE TAPPER REPORT, WE HAVE A HOST OF OTHER ADDITIONAL INFORMATION THAT YOU WILL FIND IN THE OFFICIAL ANNUAL REPORT, AND WE LOOK AT THIS INFORMATION CONSTANTLY TO INFORM DECISIONS.

YOU SEE THINGS LIKE ATTENDANCE RATE, DROPOUT RATE, CCMR, AP, SAT, AND SO THESE ARE REPORTS THAT WE USE ON A REGULAR BASIS.

NEXT IS ALL ABOUT FINANCE, AND SO [INAUDIBLE] AND HER TEAM DO A GREAT JOB OF KEEPING US UPDATED ON OUR FINANCIAL STATUS.

YOU'LL SEE THAT THIS DATA LAGS A YEAR.

THIS IS 2019 2020 INFORMATION.

AND SO THIS REPORT IS REALLY LIKE THE BALANCE SHEET FOR THE DISTRICT.

AND IF YOU'LL REMEMBER THERE IS A RATING COST CALLED THE FIRST RATING.

AND AS A DISTRICT, WE ARE A RATED AS A 1ST DISTRICT.

AND THAT'S IMPORTANT BECAUSE FOR US TO ACHIEVE AN A RATING AS A DISTRICT, IF YOU DON'T HAVE AN A READING A RATING FINANCIALLY, YOU CAN'T RECEIVE AN OVERALL RATING OF A AND SO THAT FINANCIAL REPORTING AND THE WORK THAT THEY DO IS SO VITALLY IMPORTANT.

NEXT DISTRICT ACCREDITATION STATUS I MENTIONED THIS EARLIER.

WE ARE NOT RATED DUE TO COVID.

THIS IS ACTUALLY A LETTER FROM COMMISSIONER [INAUDIBLE] THAT CAME OUT LAST WEEK AND IN THE HIGHLIGHTED YELLOW AREA, IT JUST SAYS THAT COMMISSIONERS DECIDED NOT TO ASSIGN ACCREDITATION STATUS UNTIL 22 23.

SO AGAIN, WE'RE NOT RATED DUE TO COVID.

NEXT IS OUR CAMPUS PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES.

THIS IS WHERE YOU HEAR ABOUT OUR CAMPUS ONE THINGS ALSO REFERRED TO AS CAMPUS IMPROVEMENT PLANS AND OUR CADENCE OF ACCOUNTABILITY.

THIS IS A SNAPSHOT OF THREE DIFFERENT CAMPUS WHERE THEY HAVE THEIR VISION 2030 GOAL AND ANY SUPPORTING GOAL IN YOUR HANDOUT.

YOU HAVE EVERY CAMPUS LISTED AND SO YOU CAN SEE THE GOALS FOR EACH ONE OF THOSE CAMPUSES.

THIS IS ACTUALLY APPROVED BY THE DISTRICT EDUCATION IMPROVEMENT COMMITTEE, AND THERE WAS A REPORT ON THIS BACK IN DECEMBER.

NEXT IS A REPORT ON VIOLENT OR CRIMINAL INCIDENTS AND PER TEA.

WE HAVE TO SUBMIT THIS REPORT EACH YEAR, AND IT'S VERY HARD TO SEE UP THERE ON THE SCREEN. BUT THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT LISTINGS AND THEY PULL THIS INFORMATION FROM OUR OUR TEAMS REPORTING AND IT REPORTS ON ANY INCIDENTS THAT ARE DEEMED VIOLENT OR CRIMINAL.

AND YOU CAN SEE ACROSS THE TOP EVERY CAMPUS IS LISTED AND THEN THE INCIDENTS ARE LISTED IN THAT. ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE.

[00:40:03]

THE LAST REPORT IS HOW OUR STUDENTS PERFORM IN POST-SECONDARY INSTITUTIONS, OBVIOUSLY GUIDING STATEMENTS.

WE WANT OUR KIDS TO BE LIVE COLLEGE AND OR CAREER READY.

AND SO IT'S VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE TRACK HOW OUR KIDS DO WHEN THEY LEAVE US.

AND SO TEA GIVES US SOME REPORTING INFORMATION.

WE ALSO USE A NATIONAL CLEARINGHOUSE, A DATABASE WHERE WE GET SOME MORE DETAILED INFORMATION. BUT THIS IS A SNAPSHOT FROM ONE CAMPUS.

YOU CAN SEE THAT THIS IS FOR GRADUATES FROM 2019.

SO THERE IS SOME LAG TIME BETWEEN WHEN THEY LEAVE US.

THEY COMPLETE THEIR FIRST YEAR AND WE GET THE REPORTING.

THIS WAS FROM FRONTIER HIGH SCHOOL.

AND SO YOU CAN SEE IN 2019, THEY HAD 58 TOTAL GRADUATES AND IT SHOWS YOU HOW THEY DO IN FOUR YEAR PUBLIC, TWO YEAR PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT IF THEY GO OUT OF SCHOOL OR OUT OF STATE TEA DOES NOT TRACK THEM OR IF THEY'RE ATTENDING A PRIVATE SCHOOL HERE IN TEXAS THAT'S NOT TRACKED HERE, BUT THROUGH NATIONAL CLEARINGHOUSE, WE'RE ABLE TO TRACK KIDS THAT GO OUTSIDE OF THE STATE AS WELL. SO THAT IS THE ANNUAL REPORT, AND SO BEFORE WE DO A PUBLIC HEARING, I'LL OPEN IT UP FOR ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU GUYS HAVE ON THE INFORMATION REPORTED.

BOARD MEMBERS TO MY RIGHT, MR. CANEDY.

THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION, MS. YOUNG, THAT WAS REALLY INTERESTING.

I'VE JUST GOT TWO QUICK QUESTIONS, FIRST OF ALL ON THE THE CAMPUS IMPROVEMENT PLAN, WHERE IT SAYS WHAT THEIR GOALS ARE.

I WOULD ASSUME THAT THERE ARE THEY'RE SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION ON HOW THEY'RE GOING TO ACHIEVE THOSE GOALS.

YES, SIR, WE DO THE CADENCE OF ACCOUNTABILITY WHERE THEY COME TO US FOUR TIMES A YEAR AND REPORT OUT ON THAT AND SHARE THE DATA WITH US.

THEY HAVE A PDSA, A PLAN DO STUDY DOCUMENT THAT GOES ALONG WITH THOSE FOUR PRESENTATIONS AND SO THAT INFORMATION IS TRACKED ALL YEAR.

GOOD. THANK YOU. THE SECOND THING I HAVE, AND IT'S THE LAST REPORT, WHICH IT'S ALWAYS CONFUSED ME THAT THAT REPORT REALLY HAS MUCH VALUE TO IT BECAUSE IF YOU'RE NOT GETTING THE DATA FROM PEOPLE THAT GO TO PRIVATE UNIVERSITIES OR WHATEVER, YOU'RE NOT GETTING THE FULL PICTURE.

ABSOLUTELY, SO AND THAT'S WHY WE TAKE PART AND PARTICIPATE IN NATIONAL CLEARINGHOUSE BECAUSE WE GET TO SEE KIDS THAT GO NO MATTER WHERE THEY GO, WHETHER IT'S A TRADE SCHOOL OUT OF STATE OR PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS, BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOT OF STUDENTS THAT CHOOSE THOSE ROUTES. RIGHT? THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR ANSWERS.

AND THE OTHER COMMENTS QUESTIONS TO MY RIGHT, TO MY LEFT.

I THINK WE'RE GOOD. OK, SO THAT MOVES US INTO OUR PUBLIC HEARING PORTION, AND SO PRESIDENT NEWSOM, I'VE GIVEN YOU THE TEXT FOR THAT.

IF YOU'RE READY FOR THE HEARING, I'M READY.

THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES WILL NOW APPROVE THE MISD ANNUAL REPORT.

STATE LAW REQUIRES THE OPPORTUNITY FOR COMMUNITY FEEDBACK VIA PUBLIC HEARING.

IF ANY MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC WOULD LIKE TO COMMENT ON THE MISD ANNUAL REPORT, PLEASE APPROACH THE MIC AT THIS TIME.

I WILL OPEN THE HEARING AT 7:43.

WE MUST. OK.

GOOD EVENING SCHOOL BOARD PRESIDENT.

SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS AND DR.

CANTU. I WOULD LIKE TO START OFF BY THANKING THE SCHOOL BOARD AND THE DISTRICT LEADERSHIP FOR IMPROVEMENTS ON ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT ACROSS THE BOARD.

I AM HERE TONIGHT TO SPEAK TO YOU ON CONTINUED EDUCATIONAL GAPS FOR AFRICAN-AMERICAN AND HISPANIC STUDENTS.

ACCORDING TO THE INFORMATION ON THE [INAUDIBLE] REPORT, AFRICAN-AMERICANS AND HISPANIC STUDENTS ARE COLLEGE READY AT LOWER RATES THAN THEIR PEERS IN THE DISTRICT AND STATE.

SCORE LOWER IN ENGLISH AND MATH BY DOUBLE DIGITS.

ATTEND DUAL CREDIT COURSES AT LOWER RATES AND DO NOT TAKE AP TEST LIKE THEIR PEERS.

ONCE AGAIN, THANK YOU FOR THE HARD WORK AND DEDICATION TO OUR STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY DURING THESE CHALLENGING TIMES.

AS A PARENT AND COMMUNITY ADVOCATE, I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING WHAT INITIATIVES, PARTNERSHIPS AND SYSTEMS ARE IMPLEMENTED TO REALLY MOVE THE NEEDLE TO CLOSE THESE DISPARITIES IN OUR SCHOOLS.

IF WE DO NOTHING, WE WILL FAIL A NEW GENERATION OF STUDENTS.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER SPEAKERS AT THIS TIME? SEEING, NONE. I WILL NOW CLOSE THE HEARING AT 7:45 P.M.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHTY.

[00:45:02]

MOVING RIGHT ALONG.

THIS LEADS US TO 7.1 PRESENTATIONS, DR.

CANTU. YES, I'D LIKE TO INVITE [INAUDIBLE], OUR ASSOCIATE SUPERINTENDENT FOR BUSINESS AND

[7. Presentation]

FINANCE, TO COME FORWARD AND GIVE US THE BUDGET CALENDAR AND UPDATE FOR THE UPCOMING 22 23 BUDGET, WHICH SOUNDS CRAZY.

WE'RE ALREADY TALKING ABOUT THAT.

THANK YOU. DR.

CANTU, MADAM PRESIDENT, BOARD OF TRUSTEES WHAT'S CRAZY IS I WAS HERE TWO YEARS AGO TO THIS DAY WHILE JANUARY 21ST, BUT IT WAS MY VERY FIRST PRESENTATION TO YOU AND IT WAS MY VERY FIRST DAY AT WORK.

SO I'M JUST THAT WAS A GREAT INTRODUCTION AND I'VE LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT WITH YOU GUYS AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVANT LEADERSHIP EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU.

OVER THIS TIME PERIOD.

SO TONIGHT WE START OFF WITH OUR NEW BUDGET CALENDAR FOR 22 23 2022 2023 AS WE PREPARE FOR THIS.

WE KNOW UP FRONT IT'S A NON-LEGISLATIVE YEAR, WHICH MAKES IT A LITTLE BIT EASIER AS WE PREPARE GOING FORWARD.

WE ALSO KNOW WE LOOK AT WHAT THE STATE BUDGET HAS BEEN DOING AND SO WE LISTEN TO OUR COMP TROLLER. GLENN [INAUDIBLE], WHO TELLS US THE LAST REPORT HE HAD WAS IN NOVEMBER, AND AT THAT TIME HE SAID BASICALLY THAT IN 2022 WHICH IS THIS YEAR FOR THEM, THEY PREDICT THREE POINT THREE BILLION GOING INTO THEIR RAINY DAY FUND, AND THAT'S MOSTLY ATTRIBUTED TO OIL AND GAS AND YOUR SALES TAX.

THE ECONOMY IS GOOD IN THAT AREA.

AND THEN FISCAL YEAR 2023 THEY ANTICIPATE AN ADDITIONAL FIVE POINT NINE BILLION.

SO THAT IS OUR DRIVING FACTOR TO TELL US, HEY, PUBLIC EDUCATION STILL LOOKS PRETTY GOOD AS FAR AS THE STATE BUDGET PERSPECTIVE, BECAUSE THAT'S THE BIGGEST PORTION OF THEIR BUDGET.

SO LET'S GO FORWARD AS WE GO FROM A TO B.

THIS IS WHAT I LIKE TO CALL.

THIS IS MY ROADMAP TO GET FROM A TO B AS TO ADOPT THE BUDGET AND THEN EVENTUALLY THE TAX RATE IN AUGUST.

SO IF WE START OFF IN JANUARY, WE START IN OUR BEGINNING PHASES OF PROJECTING OUR ENROLLMENTS. AND THEN JANUARY 11TH, WE HAD WHAT WE CALL BUDGET TRAINING WITH THE BUSINESS AND THE FINANCE AND THE BUDGET DEPARTMENTS.

THAT'S WITH OUR SECRETARIES AND THOSE THAT ARE INVOLVED IN THE BUDGET PROCESS AS ENTERING THOSE BUDGETS. ON THE TWENTY SIXTH, WE DELIGHTED A COUPLE OF DAYS DUE TO THE SCHOOL CLOSURES, BUT WE DELAYED OUR ENTRIES TO ALLOW FOR BUDGET REQUESTS BACK TO FOR PRINCIPALS, DIRECTORS, COORDINATORS AND ASSOCIATE SUPERINTENDENTS, ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENTS TOO.

AND THEN ON JANUARY THE 28TH, THAT IS WHEN WE SAY WE HAVE AN OPEN HOUSE FOR OUR CAMPUSES TO COME AND OUR DEPARTMENT SECRETARIES TO COME AND SAY, HEY, WE'RE HERE TO HELP YOU.

IF THERE'S ANYTHING THAT YOU NEED HELP WITH YOUR BUDGET ON FEBRUARY THE 11TH WILL BE COMING TO OR CAMPUS DEPARTMENT BUDGETS ARE DUE BACK TO THE PRINCIPALS, DIRECTORS, COORDINATORS, ASSISTANT [INAUDIBLE] AND ASSOCIATE [INAUDIBLE] AND THEN FEBRUARY 15TH.

THAT'S WHEN WE LOOK AT THE ADDITIONAL REQUESTS THAT THE CABINET LEVEL.

AND AS WE'RE GOING THROUGH THOSE REQUESTS, WE GO THROUGH OUR DECISION LENS ON THAT AND THEN FEBRUARY THE 23RD, THAT'S WHEN WE HAVE OUR WORK SESSION WITH THE CABINET AND WE REVIEW ALL THE GROWTH POSITIONS AND THE ADDITIONAL REQUESTS.

ON MARCH THE 7TH, WHICH IS RIGHT CLOSE TO SPRING BREAK RIGHT AROUND THAT TIME WORK SESSION WITH CABINET, WE'LL BE REFINING ANY KIND OF BUDGET REQUESTS ON THAT, AND THAT'S CABINET THAT WILL BE DOING THAT IN MARCH AND APRIL.

YOU MIGHT RECALL MARCH WAS THE FIRST TIME WE DID A WORK SESSION ON THE BUDGET LAST YEAR.

WE DON'T KNOW THAT THAT'S THE ANTICIPATION THIS YEAR.

WE DON'T FEEL LIKE IT IS AS A NON-LEGISLATIVE YEAR.

WE DON'T HAVE ANY OTHER KIND OF DISTRACTIONS GOING ON.

BUT WE DO WANT YOU TO BE AWARE THAT MARCH AND APRIL WE COULD DO ANY KIND OF WORK SESSIONS TO THE BOARD REQUEST APRIL 30TH.

WE HAVE PRELIMINARY TAX VALUES.

THAT'S OUR FIRST INDICATOR OF WHAT MIGHT COME AHEAD.

AS FAR AS THE TAX RATE IS CONCERNED.

TARRANT COUNTY AND JOHNSON COUNTY ARE OUR APPRAISAL DISTRICTS, SO WE GET THAT TO START OFF AND THEN THE TARGET DATE FOR FOR THE JUNE SIX THROUGH EIGHT, YOU'LL SEE IN THE NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING TO DISCUSS THE BUDGET AND THE PROPOSED TAX RATE WILL GO IN THE PAPER AND IT HAS TO BE 10 DAYS OR BETWEEN 10 AND 30 DAYS TOWARDS THE BEFORE YOU LEGALLY ADOPT OR DO YOUR PUBLIC HEARING FOR YOUR BUDGET.

ON JUNE THE 28TH, THAT'S THE ACTUAL PUBLIC MEETING WHEN WE ADOPT THE BUDGET FOR 22 23 AND IT'LL BE DONE BY OUR LOVELY BOARD OF TRUSTEES ON JULY 25TH, THAT'S REALLY THE FINAL DRIVING FACTOR OF OUR

[00:50:07]

TAX VALUES WHEN WE RECEIVE OUR CERTIFIED VALUES FROM THE APPRAISAL DISTRICT.

AND AS FROM TARRANT COUNTY AND JOHNSON COUNTY, WHICH WILL ALSO DRIVE THE TAX RATE BY AUGUST 23RD WHEN WE'LL ADOPT THAT TAX RATE.

AND THAT IS REALLY.

THE ROAD MAP ON OUR BUDGET, DO WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? THANK YOU, MA'AM. ANY QUESTIONS TO MY LEFT, MS. MARCUCCI.

THANK YOU FOR REFRESHING US ON THE DATES AND IN THE PROCESS.

IT SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN WORKING PRETTY WELL FOR US.

SO I, YOU KNOW, APPRECIATE SEEING THAT TIMELINE PUT TOGETHER.

I WAS JUST CURIOUS ABOUT, LIKE YOU ALLUDED TO, THAT THIS IS NOT A LEGISLATIVE YEAR, BUT OBVIOUSLY THE LEGISLATURE HAS MET IN THE PAST YEAR.

ARE THERE ANY NEW MAJOR UNFUNDED MANDATES THAT ARE BEING IMPLEMENTED THAT WE HAVE TO CONSIDER WITH THIS BUDGET THIS YEAR? SOMETIMES THEY CAN REALLY GET US.

THERE'S NEW RULES, NEW REGULATIONS AND NEW FEES AND THINGS LIKE THAT THAT NEED TO BE PAID. YES, MA'AM.

ACTUALLY, IT'S IN OUR THIRD YEAR, OUR FINAL YEAR OF A PRE-K FULL DAY PRE-K EXPANSION THAT IS SOMEWHAT FUNDED.

I WOULDN'T SAY IT'S FULLY FUNDED.

IT NEVER IS. OK.

I WAS JUST DIDN'T KNOW IF THERE'S ANYTHING ELSE ON THE HORIZON THAT WE NEEDED TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT AT THIS PRESENT TIME.

OBVIOUSLY, WITH THE ESSER FUNDS AND SO MANY OTHER THINGS RELATED TO COVID THAT COULD IMPACT BUDGET TO, I KNOW THAT WE'RE STILL WORKING THROUGH ALL OF THAT AS WELL.

THAT'S CORRECT. I MEAN, THE DRIVING FACTOR IS ENROLLMENT, AND WE WON'T KNOW THAT ACTUAL ENROLLMENT NUMBERS UNTIL THE OCTOBER, ACTUALLY WHEN WE FIRST START SCHOOL.

AND THE OTHER PIECE THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT IS OPENING THE NEW FINE ARTS ACADEMY.

AND SO WE KNOW THAT APPLICATION WILL BE OPEN IN MARCH WILL HAVE A BETTER IDEA OF WHAT STUDENTS WILL BE GOING THERE.

AND THEN ALONG THE ENROLLMENT PIECE, WE STILL DON'T HAVE ANY DEFINITIVE ANSWERS FROM THE TEA. AS FAR AS HOW THIS YEAR'S ENROLLMENT MAY IMPACT FUNDING.

I KNOW THAT THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF CONCERN ABOUT THE ATTENDANCE RATE BEING LOW, NOT JUST IN MANSFIELD ISD, BUT ACROSS THE STATE.

CORRECT. YES, THERE'S JUST ACROSS THE STATE OF TEXAS.

AVERAGE DAILY ATTENDANCE IS DOWN.

AND SO WE'RE STILL WAITING.

WE HAVE NO INDICATION WHATSOEVER AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THERE WILL BE ANY HOLD HARMLESS MOVING FORWARD. RELATED TO THIS SCHOOL YEAR, WE'RE HOPEFUL, BUT WE HAVE RECEIVED NO INDICATION OF THAT OCCURRING AT THIS TIME.

SO I RECOMMEND THAT WE INVEST IN A GOOD LITTLE CRYSTAL BALL TO LOOK INTO.

AND MS. MARCUCCI, YOU ASK ABOUT UNFUNDED MANDATES.

ONE OF THE BIGGEST ONES THAT CAME OUT OF THIS LEGISLATIVE SESSION WAS HOUSE BILL FORTY FIVE FORTY FIVE AND THAT'S COSTING A LOT OF MONEY AND WE'RE RELYING ON ESSER RIGHT NOW, BUT THAT'S GOING TO RUN OUT.

AND SO THAT'S GOING TO BE PROBLEMATIC MOVING FORWARD.

OK. I JUST I MEAN, I KNOW THAT THERE'S A LOT OF OBSTACLES TO WORK THROUGH AND NOT EVEN JUST THIS LEGISLATIVE YEAR, PREVIOUS LEGISLATIVE YEARS THAT WE'RE STILL WORKING THROUGH SOME OF THOSE UNFUNDED MANDATES.

SO I APPRECIATE THE HEADS UP AND TRANSPARENCY ON THAT.

HMM. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS TO MY LEFT? TO MY RIGHT, MR. SNEED.

THANK YOU, MR. [INAUDIBLE] FOR THE PRESENTATION.

CAN YOU REFRESH MY MEMORY WITH REGARDS TO THE PENNY SWAP THAT WE JUST THE CITIZENS PASSED IN NOVEMBER.

THE EXPECTED FINANCIAL IMPACT IN TERMS OF FUNDS FOR THE DISTRICT? AND ALSO, ARE WE MAKING ANY ANY CONTINGENCIES WITH WHAT APPEARS TO BE INCREASED INFLATION AND HOW THAT MIGHT ALSO IMPACT OUR BUDGET NEXT YEAR? YES, SIR. GREAT QUESTIONS.

I'LL ADDRESS THE SECOND ONE FIRST BECAUSE IT'S A LITTLE EASIER TO ADDRESS.

SO THE ANSWER TO THAT IS YES, THAT WE DO UNDERSTAND THEIR SUPPLY CHAIN AND SOME INCREASE IN INFLATION.

AND I WILL HAVE A LITTLE CONTINGENCY IN MY BUDGET THAT I HOLD BACK FOR THAT PURPOSE.

AND IF THEY NEED IT, WE'RE GOING TO GO THROUGH IT.

IF THEY HAVE THE REQUESTS AND QUOTES COME UP, WE'LL BE READY FOR THE OTHER PIECE OF IT.

SO WHAT HAPPENS TO OUR BUDGET? WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE FINANCIAL IMPACT AFTER PASSING THE [INAUDIBLE]? OK, SO AT THAT TIME, IT WAS AN ADDITIONAL FOUR HUNDRED AND TWELVE THOUSAND THAT THE STATE KICKED IN FOR EVERY PENNY THAT WE DID FOR THE PROPERTY TAXES, RIGHT? SO WE WILL KEEP THAT GOING FORWARD.

AND THEN NOW IT'S A RELIABLE FACTOR OF THE ENROLLMENT THAT'S GOING TO DRIVE IT.

SO THE ENROLLMENT IS WHAT'S GOING TO INCREASE THE FUNDING FOR THAT.

IT WILL NOT ADD ANOTHER 24 MILLION LIKE WE DID AND THAT ONE YEAR.

[00:55:02]

SO THAT ANSWERS YOUR QUESTION.

I DON'T KNOW IF THAT ANSWERED YOUR QUESTION.

WELL, I UNDERSTOOD FROM THE PRESENTATIONS THAT WAS GIVEN ACROSS THE DISTRICT THAT THE DISTRICT HAD SOME PRIORITIES IF IT WAS APPROVED BY THE CITIZENS.

AND I GUESS MY QUESTION IS, DO YOU STILL ANTICIPATE US STILL HAVING THAT PROJECTED AMOUNT? I THINK IT WAS ABOUT 20 PLUS MILLION DOLLARS.

AND MY QUESTION IS, DO WE STILL ANTICIPATE THAT AMOUNT BEING WHAT WE'LL HAVE FOR THIS UPCOMING BUDGET YEAR? AND I DO UNDERSTAND THE COMMENT ABOUT THE ATTENDANCE BECAUSE THAT DOES IMPACT THE BUDGET PROCESS. BUT. IF THE ATTENDANCE DOES NOT GO DOWN ANY MORE THAN IT CURRENTLY IS RIGHT NOW, DO WE STILL ANTICIPATE 20 PLUS MILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR, PARTICULARLY THIS FIRST YEAR? OK, SO WHAT THAT 20 PLUS MILLION THAT COVERED THAT TIME, THAT WAS FOURTEEN POINT NINE MILLION OF THE SCHOOLS AND THEN THE TWO POINT TWO MILLION WAS FOR THE BUSSES, SO WE COULD USE SOME OF THOSE BUSSES BACK.

THAT'S A ONE TIME EXPENDITURE.

BUT THOSE THINGS THAT WE HAD TO MAINTAIN THE OPERATIONAL COSTS OF THE DISTRICT OF THE 20 MILLION, 24 MILLION, THOSE WILL STAY CONSTANT.

THOSE WILL CONTINUE TO BE THERE.

SO WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF THOSE ONE TIME EXPENDITURES THAT WE HAVE GOING FORWARD, BUT NOT THE TWENTY FOUR MILLION.

EVERY SINGLE YEAR, WE DO GET TO KEEP THE TWENTY FOUR MILLION MAINTAIN IN REVENUE.

OKAY, THANK YOU.

I HOPE THAT [INAUDIBLE] SCHOOL FINANCE GETS COMPLICATED.

AND I'D LIKE TO SAY WITHOUT A TAX INCREASE.

CORRECT? THANK YOU.

THANK YOU FOR THE CLARIFICATION.

YES, THERE IS NO I DON'T. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS TO MY RIGHT? WELL, THANK YOU. MS. [INAUDIBLE].

WE APPRECIATE ALL YOUR TIME AND EFFORTS AND TRYING TO EXPLAIN IT TO US AND BREAK IT DOWN.

THANK YOU. THIS MOVES US ON TO EIGHT POINT ONE PUBLIC COMMENTS.

OH, I'M SO SORRY.

LOOK AT HIM. HE JUST WALKS AWAY.

DON'T WALK AWAY,[INAUDIBLE]. HEY, YOU ALREADY GOT A CHANCE TO TALK TONIGHT, SIR.

COME ON UP. I DIDN'T KNOW I WAS DOING PUBLIC COMMENTS.

HEY, HEY, NOW'S THE TIME.

I WAS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT, OK, WHAT'S MY NEXT MOVE? SO DR.

CANTU, PRESIDENT NEWSOM, DISTINGUISHED MEMBERS OF THE BOARD DISTRICT EXECUTIVES.

IT'S MY PLEASURE TO PRESENT TO YOU THE COVID UPDATE FOR JANUARY.

TONIGHT, WE'RE GOING TO SHARE WITH YOU SOME DATA, WE'RE GOING TO REVIEW THE TO THE STUDENT TIERED SYSTEM THAT WE HAVE IN PLACE.

WE'LL TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT TESTING SITES AND WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE IN THE DISTRICT NOW.

WE'RE GOING TO REVIEW THE COMMITTEE PROCESS THAT'S UTILIZED WHEN WE REVIEW SCHOOLS AND WHAT'S GOING ON ON THE CAMPUSES.

AND THEN WE'LL PROVIDE YOU AN OPPORTUNITY FOR A Q&A AT THE END.

SO LET'S LOOK AT THE DATA.

AS YOU CAN SEE THAT IN TARRANT COUNTY, NEWLY REPORTED CASES OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST FOUR WEEKS, THERE'S BEEN A MAJOR INCREASE AND THAT IS OBVIOUSLY DUE TO WHAT WE ALL ARE AWARE OF THE OMICRON VARIANT.

YOU CAN SEE THAT LAST WEEK THE THE NUMBER OF REPORTED CASES DID DROP.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN CONSIDER ONE WEEK TO BE A TREND, BUT LET'S HOPE IT DOES CONTINUE IN THAT DIRECTION. THIS IS THE DISTRICT PERCENT OF STUDENTS POSITIVE CASES BY WEEK.

YOU CAN SEE AGAIN OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST FOUR WEEKS, WE'VE HAD QUITE AN INCREASE.

BUT AT NO POINT IN TIME IN THE DISTRICT HAVE WE GONE ABOVE THE THREE PERCENT.

STUDENT CASES DISTRICT WIDE.

THIS IS ONE COMPONENT OF THE DASHBOARD YOU CAN SEE THAT WE HAVE 576 STUDENT ACTIVE CASES CURRENTLY, THAT'S ONE POINT SIX PERCENT OF OUR STUDENT BODY.

WE HAVE 89 ACTIVE STAFF CASES.

THAT'S ONE POINT NINE PERCENT OF OUR STAFF.

WHEN I REPORTED TO YOU IN NOVEMBER, WE HAD ONE STAFF CASE.

SO THERE HAS BEEN QUITE AN INCREASE OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST FEW WEEKS.

SO I WANT TO REVIEW WITH YOU THE COVID TIERED SYSTEM BEFORE I SHOW YOU THE OTHER COMPONENT OF THE DASHBOARD, EACH ONE OF YOU HAS ONE OF THESE THERE AT YOUR I WANT TO CALL IT YOUR DESK. THAT'S MY OLD TEACHER DAYS COMING BACK AT YOUR DESK, AT YOUR TABLE.

[01:00:04]

SO THE COVID TIERED SYSTEM, IF YOU LOOK AT THE VERY TOP LINE, THERE'S SOME COMPONENTS TO THE SYSTEM. THIS IS THIS IS WHAT GUIDES US.

IT PROVIDES US GUIDANCE AS WE IMPLEMENT MITIGATING STRATEGIES IF COMMUNICABLE DISEASE PERCENTAGES ELEVATE.

MITIGATION STRATEGIES, IF IT ELEVATES TO ONE OF THE DIFFERENT TIERS, WILL BE IN PLACE FOR A MINIMUM OF TWO WEEKS.

ALSO ON THAT COVID TIER SYSTEM SHEET THAT WE HAVE OR THAT PAGE THAT'S IN FRONT OF YOU AT THE VERY BOTTOM, YOU CAN SEE THE MITIGATING STRATEGIES THAT WE USE ON A DAILY BASIS.

SOME OF THOSE ARE HAND-SANITIZING STATIONS ARE AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE BUILDINGS.

BOTTLE FILLING STATIONS ARE AVAILABLE, RESTROOM HANDRAILS AND OTHER COMMON AREAS ARE CLEANED REGULARLY, AND THERE'S SOME OTHER COMPONENTS TO THAT.

THOSE ARE THE MITIGATING STRATEGIES THAT WE USE EVERY SINGLE DAY, AND I'LL TALK TO IT IN A MOMENT. BUT THOSE ARE THE MITIGATING STRATEGIES THAT WE UTILIZE WHEN WE'RE OPERATING IN GREEN. SO LET'S LOOK AT THE DIFFERENT LEVELS OR TIERS, ANY CAMPUS THAT IS THREE PERCENT OR BELOW IS OPERATING AT GREEN, AND THEY'RE UTILIZING THOSE MITIGATING STRATEGIES THAT I JUST MENTIONED.

IF A CAMPUS GOES ABOVE THREE PERCENT BUT BELOW FOUR POINT NINETY NINE PERCENT, YOU CAN SEE, THEN WE ADD A LAYER OF MITIGATING STRATEGIES TO WHAT WE'RE CURRENTLY DOING.

SO THE LAYER THAT WE ADD IS IN ADDITION TO WHAT WE'RE ALREADY DOING.

SO IF WE'RE AT THE YELLOW LEVEL, THEN WE'RE PERFORMING THE MITIGATING STRATEGIES AT GREEN AND WE'RE PERFORMING THOSE STRATEGIES AT YELLOW.

IF WE JUMP OVER THAT FIVE PERCENT, THEN WE ADD ANOTHER LAYER.

OF MITIGATING STRATEGIES.

SO THIS COVID TIER SYSTEM IS TIED TO THE DASHBOARD THAT I'M GETTING READY TO SHOW YOU.

SO THIS IS OUR DASHBOARD.

USUALLY WE USE THIS DASHBOARD BASICALLY BECAUSE YOU CAN'T READ IT OR SEE IT, BUT YOU HAVE ONE IN FRONT OF YOU. WE USE IT ACTUALLY AS A VISUAL.

SO BUT YOU HAVE IT IN FRONT OF YOU SO YOU CAN ACTUALLY SEE THE DATA.

THIS IS AS OF YESTERDAY.

SO IF YOU LOOK AT THE COLUMN UNDER THE ARROW, THAT'S BLUE UP THERE, THAT IS THE CURRENT PERCENT ON EACH ONE OF OUR INDIVIDUAL CAMPUSES.

SO YOU CAN SEE THAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE 42 CAMPUSES AS OF YESTERDAY THAT ARE OPERATING OR THAT THAT HAVE A GREEN LEVEL ON THEIR CAMPUS FOR THAT DAY.

WE HAVE SIX CAMPUSES THAT ARE IN YELLOW AND WE HAVE ZERO THAT ARE IN RED.

IF YOU'LL LOOK AT THAT BLACK ARROW, THAT IS A COLUMN THAT WE'VE ADDED BECAUSE IF YOU REMEMBER THAT I MENTIONED, IF WE JUMP INTO YELLOW OR RED, WE'RE GOING TO OPERATE ON THAT CAMPUS FOR TWO WEEKS IN YELLOW OR RED.

SO WE PUT A DATE THERE.

SO IF A CAMPUS IS GREEN YESTERDAY, YELLOW TODAY AND GOES BACK TO GREEN TOMORROW, THEY'RE GREEN FOR THAT DAY, BUT THEY'RE OPERATING IN THE YELLOW FOR TWO WEEKS.

YOU CAN SEE THAT AS OF YESTERDAY, THERE WERE 27 SCHOOLS THAT WERE OPERATING IN GREEN, 19 IN YELLOW AND 3 IN RED.

SO IF I EXTRACT THAT OUT AND SHOW YOU JUST IF I ZOOM IN, YOU CAN SEE WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE FOR THE DAY UNDER THE BLUE.

THERE ARE CAMPUSES THAT ARE CURRENTLY GREEN FOR THE DAY.

BUT IF YOU LOOK NEXT TO THAT, THEY MAY POTENTIALLY BE OPERATING IN YELLOW OR RED.

AND IN THIS CASE, THERE ARE TWO CAMPUSES THAT ARE GREEN FOR THE DAY, BUT THEY'RE STILL IN THAT TWO WEEK WINDOW BEFORE THEY DROP OFF A RED OR DROP OFF A YELLOW AS TO HOW THEY OPERATE THE MITIGATING STRATEGIES THAT THEY UTILIZE.

SO I ADDED THIS SLIDE JULIE DID FOR ME JUST A FEW MINUTES PRIOR TO THE BOARD MEETING.

SO THIS IS TODAY'S VISUAL.

SO YESTERDAY YOU CAN SEE THAT WE HAD SIX CAMPUSES THAT WERE YELLOW.

TODAY, ALL OF OUR CAMPUSES ARE BELOW THAT THREE PERCENT, EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE SEVERAL THAT ARE CONTINUING TO OPERATE IN THE YELLOW OR RED TODAY, NONE OF OUR CAMPUSES ARE ABOVE THREE PERCENT. SO LET'S MOVE ON TO I START TO SAY, ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS THAT WE SAY THAT FOR THE END, DON'T WE? SO LET'S MOVE ON TO THE LATEST NEWS AND UPDATES.

THERE'S A FEW THINGS THAT ARE DIFFERENT FROM WHEN WE LAST MET.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT'S DIFFERENT IS THE CDC MADE A RECOMMENDATION TO MOVE THE QUARANTINE FOR THOSE PEOPLE THAT TESTED POSITIVE FROM 10 DAYS TO FIVE DAYS.

THAT IS ACROSS THE BOARD, THE CDC'S RECOMMENDATION IS FOR STUDENTS AND STAFF AND FOR

[01:05:02]

THOSE PEOPLE IN THE WORKPLACE, BUT TEA HAS ONLY ALLOWED US TO UTILIZE THAT FOR STAFF MEMBERS. SO AS A DISTRICT, WE HAVE MOVED FROM 10 DAYS TO FIVE DAYS FOR OUR STAFF.

AGAIN, FIVE DAYS AS LONG AS THEY DON'T HAVE FEVER AND THEY'RE ASYMPTOMATIC.

IF THEY'RE NOT ASYMPTOMATIC OR IF THEY CONTINUE TO HAVE FEVER AFTER FIVE DAYS, THEN THEY CONTINUE TO HAVE TO STAY HOME.

BUT TEA. IS ALLOWING US TO DO THAT.

SO TEA, IF YOU'LL REMEMBER, ALSO REQUIRED US TO TEST SOMEBODY THAT WAS A CLOSE CONTACT PERIODICALLY FOR 10 DAYS, AND WE HAD AN AGREEMENT WITH A COMPANY CALLED GENE IQ, AND I'LL TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT MORE IN A MINUTE.

BUT BECAUSE OF THE REDUCTION FROM 10 DAYS TO FIVE DAYS, WE NOW ONLY HAVE TO TO TEST THOSE PEOPLE THAT ARE CLOSE CONTACTS PERIODICALLY FOR FIVE DAYS.

SO CURRENTLY IN THE DISTRICT, WE'RE TESTING THEM DAY ONE AND DAY FIVE.

AGAIN, GENE IQ IS A COMPANY THAT WE'RE UTILIZING TO ASSIST US IN THAT PROCESS.

THEY'RE DOING TESTS EITHER AT GENE IQ OR WITH SOMEBODY ELSE, AND THEN WE'RE GIVING THEM A TEST TO DO DAY FIVE AT HOME.

GENE IQ IS THE GROUP THAT IS PERFORMING THE TEST AT VERNON NEWSOM STADIUM, AND OUR AND OUR STAFF HAVE A FAST PASS TO THE FRONT OF THE LINE.

SO I ALSO MENTIONED LAST TIME THAT WE CLOSED DOWN THE TESTING SITE AT THE [INAUDIBLE] CENTER FOR PERFORMING ARTS, AND THAT WAS THE CASE.

BUT WE HAVE REOPENED THAT AT RL ANDERSON.

SO THERE WAS A BECAUSE THE THE GROUP THAT WAS HERE, IT'S THE SAME GROUP, BUT THEY WERE HERE AT THE [INAUDIBLE] CENTER.

THEY WEREN'T PERFORMING VERY MANY TESTS.

OBVIOUSLY, THE OMICRON VARIANT CAME AROUND AND THERE WAS A NEED FOR MORE TESTS.

SO WE MADE AN ARRANGEMENT FOR THEM TO COME BACK AND THEY'RE DOING THAT AT RL ANDERSON.

THEY CAN DRIVE THROUGH OVER THERE.

THERE'S FOUR LINES AND THEY CAN DRIVE OUT THE BACK.

IT'S A REALLY GOOD SETUP.

WE'RE ALSO OFFERING TESTS AT THE HEALTH SERVICES TO OUR STAFF.

MARGARET [INAUDIBLE] AND HER TEAM BECAUSE STAFF WERE IN SOME INSTANCES HAVING TO WAIT SEVEN DAYS TO GET TEST RESULTS.

HER TEAM PROPPED UP A TESTING SITE OVER THEIR OFFICE AND IT WAS A DRIVE THRU SITE AND THEY WERE TESTING PEOPLE AND GETTING THEM RESULTS EXPEDITIOUSLY SO THAT OUR STAFF WOULDN'T HAVE TO WAIT SEVEN DAYS TO FIND OUT IF THEY HAD COVID OR IF THEY JUST HAD ALLERGIES. SO LET'S TALK FOR JUST A MINUTE ABOUT THE DISTRICT DATA REVIEW PROCESS.

WE USE A PROCESS AND TO THIS POINT, WHAT I'VE WHAT I'VE TALKED ABOUT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE DASHBOARD, WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE COMPONENTS THAT ARE INVOLVED WITH THAT, THE TIERED SYSTEM THAT IS ALL STUDENT RELATED.

SO LET'S TALK ABOUT THE PROCESS WE UTILIZE WHEN WE ASSESS OR EVALUATE OUR SCHOOLS AND THE STRESSES THAT THEY MAY BE UNDER.

SO WHAT FACTORS DO WE UTILIZE OR WHAT FACTORS CALL STRESS ON THE SYSTEM? ON A CAMPUS, TEACHER ABSENCES, STAFF ABSENCES, ADMINISTRATIVE ABSENCES AND LOW FILL RATES. AND WHEN I TALK ABOUT FILL RATES, I'M TALKING ABOUT SUBSTITUTES FOR TEACHERS, STAFF OR ADMINISTRATION THAT MAY BE OUT.

THOSE THINGS CAUSE A STRESS ON THE SYSTEM AND ULTIMATELY THEY AFFECT INSTRUCTION.

THEY AFFECT LEARNING.

AND SOMETIMES THERE'S A SAFETY COMPONENT INVOLVED.

SO WHEN A PRINCIPAL FEELS LIKE THERE'S THEIR SYSTEM ON THEIR CAMPUS IS UNDER STRESS, THEY REACH OUT TO THEIR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR.

THEIR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR THEN PROVIDES THEM A FORM TO COMPLETE THAT FORM PROVIDES.

AND WE'LL TALK ABOUT THE COMMITTEE HERE IN A MINUTE, BUT THAT THAT FORM PROVIDES DATA INFORMATION AND A RECOMMENDATION FROM THE CAMPUS ON WHAT'S GOING ON AND THE STRESSES THAT ARE TAKING PLACE ON THEIR CAMPUS THAT MAY BE AFFECTING INSTRUCTION AND LEARNING AND SAFETY. SO THAT FORM THEN COMES TO THE COMMITTEE.

THE COMMITTEE IS COMPOSED OF PEOPLE FROM EVERY DISCIPLINE IN THE DISTRICT.

I MEAN THIS THIS WHEN YOU LOOK AT THIS TABLE RIGHT HERE, THERE'S SOMEBODY THAT REPRESENTS EVERY ONE OF THESE DEPARTMENTS.

THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS ARE INVOLVED, OTHER ADMINISTRATORS ARE THERE, INSTRUCTION, ET CETERA. SO THAT COMMITTEE THEN REVIEWS AND CONSIDERS THE FACTORS THAT ARE GOING ON ON THE CAMPUS. AND AGAIN, THERE'S A LIST OF THOSE THINGS THAT ARE THE STRESSORS THAT COULD POTENTIALLY BE AFFECTING INSTRUCTION AND LEARNING AND SAFETY.

SO WHAT DOES THE CAMPUS LOOK LIKE FROM A TEACHER ABSENCE? WHEN ARE THOSE TEACHERS GOING TO RETURN? WE KNOW THEY'RE ABSENT, BUT ARE THEY ABSENT FOR ANOTHER WEEK OR WILL THEY BE BACK IN THE

[01:10:04]

CLASSROOM TOMORROW BECAUSE THEIR FIVE DAYS IS UP AND THEY'RE FEELING BETTER? WHAT ARE THE FILL RATES? HOW MANY OF THOSE TEACHERS THAT ARE OUT HAVE A SUBSTITUTE? THAT'S BEEN A DIFFICULT THING ALL YEAR LONG.

TEACHER RETURN DATES I MENTIONED STAFF ABSENCES, ADMINISTRATIVE ABSENCES.

ARE CASES ISOLATED TO A GRADE LEVEL OR THEY ISOLATED GEOGRAPHICALLY ON THE CAMPUS? WHERE ARE THEY? WHERE ARE THE CASES TAKING PLACE? IS THERE A SECOND GRADE THAT HAS FIVE SECOND GRADE CLASSES ON THAT CAMPUS? AND FOUR OF THOSE TEACHERS ARE OUT? THAT'S A STRESS TO THAT GRADE LEVEL, BUT MIGHT NOT BE A STRESS TO THE ENTIRE CAMPUS.

SO ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE THINGS THAT WE DISCUSS WHEN WE GET TOGETHER TO REVIEW WHERE A CAMPUS IS AND SOME OF THE STRESSES THAT ARE TAKING PLACE.

WHAT ARE THE STUDENT CASES LOOK LIKE? CAN ADDITIONAL ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT BE PROVIDED TO TO KEEP THE CAMPUS RUNNING TO WHERE AGAIN, INSTRUCTION AND LEARNING ARE TAKING PLACE AND IT'S A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR THAT TO OCCUR. CAMPUS MORALE? WHAT'S THAT LOOK LIKE? AND THEN ULTIMATELY, WHAT IS THE CAMPUS RECOMMENDING? WHAT IS THE WHAT IS THE PRINCIPAL WANTS US TO DO? WHAT IS THE PRINCIPAL CONCERNED ABOUT? SO THE COMMITTEE THEN LOOKS AT ALL THAT INFORMATION, AND THERE ARE SEVERAL THINGS THAT CAN COME OUT OF THAT COMMITTEE.

SOMETIMES WE LOOK AT THE DATA, WE FEEL LIKE IT'S OK.

THE PRINCIPAL FEELS LIKE IT'S OK, BUT IT'S A CAMPUS THAT WE NEED TO KEEP AN EYE ON.

WE MAY NEED TO MEET AGAIN TOMORROW TO LOOK AT THAT CAMPUS OR THAT GRADE LEVEL OR THAT, YOU KNOW, WING OF THE CAMPUS ITSELF.

AGAIN, WE MAY PROVIDE IT.

WE MAY DECIDE THAT WE NEED TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT, DO WE NEED TO CLOSE AN AREA OF THE CAMPUS OR WING? DO WE NEED TO CLOSE THE CAMPUS AND ULTIMATELY DO WE HAVE TO CLOSE THE DISTRICT? OBVIOUSLY, WE'RE ALL AWARE THAT WE DID THAT FOR TWO DAYS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE MARTIN LUTHER KING HOLIDAY.

THAT'S THE PROCESS WE UTILIZE TO REVIEW CAMPUSES AND WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE STRESSORS THAT THEY'RE DEALING WITH. AND CAN WE KEEP THAT CAMPUS PROPPED UP FROM A INSTRUCTION LEARNING AND SAFETY COMPONENT? THAT CONCLUDES THE PRESENTATION.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, BOARD MEMBERS.

NOW QUESTIONS. QUESTIONS TO MY LEFT.

MS. FARRAR.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE PRESENTATION AND ESPECIALLY THE REVIEW COMMITTEE AND ALL OF THAT THOUGHT AND THAT GOES INTO LOOKING AT EACH CAMPUS WHEN THEY'RE KIND OF IN COULD BE IN CRISIS MODE AT THAT POINT.

SO APPRECIATE THE EXPLANATION ON THAT.

ONE THING THAT I DID HAVE A QUESTION ON AS FAR AS LET'S GO BACK TO THE TIER SYSTEM FOR A SECOND. SO WHEN WE'RE IN THE YELLOW AT THAT POINT, WE DON'T HAVE ANY VISITORS OR VOLUNTEERS ON CAMPUS AND TOTALLY UNDERSTAND THE THINKING BEHIND THAT.

JUST ONE THING THAT I.

THAT CONCERNS ME. ONE, I'M NOT A BIG FAN OF PARENTS NOT BEING ON CAMPUS.

AGAIN, UNDERSTAND WHERE WE ARE WITH THAT.

BUT I HEARD FROM SOME TEACHERS JUST NOT ALLOWING THE VOLUNTEERS ON CAMPUS THAT ARE HELPING MAKE COPIES OR HELPING WITH THE LUNCHROOM OR HELPING WITH JUST DIFFERENT THINGS THAT ARE HELP THAT KEEP THAT CAMPUS RUNNING.

IF THERE'S ANY WAY THAT WE COULD LOOK AT, MAYBE ALLOWING JUST SPECIFIC VOLUNTEERS TO BE ABLE TO STILL ACCESS THE CAMPUS TO KIND OF HELP KEEP IT RUNNING, ESPECIALLY WITH THE THERE BEING NOT A FILL RATE THAT IS NOT NOT AS MANY SUBSTITUTES ON THE CAMPUS TO BE ABLE TO HELP THE TEACHERS OUT THERE JUST KIND OF FILLING IN DURING THEIR LUNCH BREAK, FILLING IN DURING THEIR PLANNING PERIOD.

SO I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE COULD LOOK AT, BUT ANY WAY THAT WE CAN HELP THE TEACHERS MAINTAIN THE CLASSROOM AND REALLY HELP THEM FILL IN WITH.

I FEEL LIKE THE VOLUNTEERS AND THE PARENTS ARE SO CRUCIAL TO THAT.

SO JUST SOMETHING THAT WE MAY BE ABLE TO LOOK AT.

YOU KNOW, AND IT'S SOMETHING THAT WE CAN HAVE SOME CONVERSATION ABOUT, WHAT WE DON'T WANT TO DO IS GO OUTSIDE OF OUR ESTABLISHED PROTOCOLS THAT HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR US BECAUSE THAT REALLY IS WHAT WE THINK IS ABLE HAS ENABLED US TO GET OUR CAMPUSES BACK ON TRACK SO QUICKLY. WHEN WE LOOK AT WHERE WE WERE ON THE 13TH AND WE LOOK AT WHERE WE ARE TODAY, WE SEE THAT IT'S WORKING AS FAR AS KEEPING US OPERATIONAL AND RUNNING.

BUT THERE MIGHT BE OTHER WAYS OR OTHER WAYS THAT WE CAN HELP CAMPUSES, MAYBE OUTSIDE OF BREAKING OUR PROTOCOLS.

SO THANK YOU FOR THAT. THANK YOU.

ANYONE ELSE TO MY LEFT? TO MY RIGHT, MR. DAVIS. [INAUDIBLE] THANK YOU.

I DID HAVE QUESTIONS COMING INTO THIS EVENING REGARDING JUST THE PROCESS FOR TEACHERS AND STAFF, AND YOU'VE SPOKEN TO THAT ELOQUENTLY AND I APPRECIATE THAT, PARTICULARLY IN THIS PUBLIC FORUM, WHETHER IT BE MISINFORMATION OR JUST UNINFORMED FOLKS.

SO IN THIS PUBLIC FORM KIND OF SETS THE RECORD STRAIGHT.

SO I APPRECIATE THAT.

THE QUESTION I DO HAVE, THOUGH, AND I APPRECIATE THE UPDATES FROM THE ACADEMIC CAMPUSES, I WOULD LOVE TO GET SOME VISIBILITY TO WHAT'S GOING ON INTO THE ADMINISTRATIVE AND STAFF

[01:15:02]

LOCATIONS AS WELL.

SO WHAT'S HAPPENING AT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE BUS BARN, WHAT'S HAPPENING IN OTHER PARTS OF OUR, YOU KNOW, WE VALUE THAT PART OF OUR DISTRICT AS MUCH AS ANY OTHER PART, AND I DON'T THINK WE'VE GOTTEN VISIBILITY WHAT'S HAPPENING THERE.

SO I'M NOT SUGGESTING WHAT THAT CONSTRUCT NEEDS TO LOOK LIKE.

BUT I WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO GET INFORMATION ABOUT THAT GOING FORWARD AS WELL.

SO ON OUR DASHBOARD, THERE IS ON THE ON THE STAFF COMPONENT.

THERE IS A LINE THAT THAT HAS THE AUXILIARY STAFF IS ATTACHED TO IT, BUT IT IS NOT BROKEN OUT TO YOUR POINT, IT'S NOT BROKEN OUT INTO POLICE OR CUSTODIAL OR WHATEVER.

YEAH. AND I GUESS MY CONCERN IS THAT OVERALL, THAT NUMBER AS A WHOLE MAY LOOK GOOD, BUT WE MAY HAVE POCKETS, POCKETS OF EXPOSURE OR CONCERN.

GOOD FEEDBACK. THANKS.

MR. SNEED.

[INAUDIBLE] NOW YOU'VE DONE A VERY GOOD JOB OF EXPLAINING THE PROCESS AND ALSO GIVING US SOME THINGS AS A BOARD MEMBER AND AS A COMMUNITY TO CONSIDER WHEN IT COMES TO A SCHOOL CLOSE AGAIN AND THE STRESSORS.

THE QUESTION I HAVE MAY NOT NECESSARILY BE MAY NEED TO BE ANSWERED BY YOU, BUT I DO WANT TO ASK THE QUESTION BECAUSE I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT.

I KNOW EARLIER IN THE YEAR, THE BOARD APPROVED SOME THINGS TO TRY TO INCREASE SUBS IN THE DISTRICT AND TO ALSO TO INCREASE CUSTODIANS IN THE DISTRICT AND THE IMPACTS ON MY QUESTION, BECAUSE THERE MAY BE PARENTS WHO WANT TO KNOW THIS.

HOW OFTEN ARE THE CLASSROOMS CLEANED WITH COVID AND OMICRON? IS THAT IS THAT EVERY DAY, EVERY OTHER DAY? IS THAT BEING IMPACTED DUE TO NOT HAVING AS A FULL CUSTODIAL STAFF? AND ALSO MY OTHER QUESTION IS REALLY ON THE HR SIDE IS.

ALL ACROSS THE REGION, I'VE BEEN HEARING COMMENTS ABOUT OUR NEWS REPORTS ABOUT SCHOOL CLOSURES, DIFFICULTIES AND FINDING SUBS, TEACHERS BEING OUT BECAUSE OF COVID WHEN WE'RE NOT IN THE RED OR THE YELLOW.

ARE WE STILL HAVING, I GUESS, A HARD TIME FILLING CLASSES DUE TO SUBS? EVEN WITH THE ADDITIONAL PAY CHANGES THAT WE MADE? THAT'S MY THOSE ARE MY TWO QUESTIONS.

MR. [INAUDIBLE], COULD YOU START OFF WITH A CUSTODIAL? YES, AND THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION, MR. SNEED. THANK YOU FOR THE QUESTION.

AND WE DO STILL APPRECIATE THE THE APPROVAL THAT YOU GAVE US ON HELPING US HIRE.

AND SO TO KIND OF SUM THAT UP, WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO HIRE A FEW PEOPLE, BUT WE'RE STILL SIGNIFICANTLY SHORT.

BUT EVEN BE SHORT, OUR CUSTODIAL STAFF IS FINDING WAYS TO GET EVERY CLASSROOM CLEANED.

NOW WE MAY SKIP PICKING UP TRASH ONE NIGHT IN LIEU OF CLEANING DESKTOPS, WHICH ARE MUCH MORE IMPORTANT RECENTLY.

WITH THE UPTICK IN CASES, WE'VE ALSO INCREASED THE NUMBER OF TIMES THAT WE DO ELECTROSTATIC SPRAYING.

AND SO WE'VE EVEN ESTABLISHED SOME SEPARATE TEAMS THAT AREN'T ASSIGNED TO A PARTICULAR CAMPUS THAT GO THROUGHOUT THE DISTRICT AND CONTINUE OUR ELECTROSTATIC SPRAYING.

AND WHAT THAT IS IS OUR DISINFECTANT BEING SPRAYED INTO A MIST AND ACTUALLY MISTING ALL THE SURFACES THAT THE STUDENTS TOUCH AND WORK ON DAILY.

WE CONTINUE TO CLEAN ALL THE HIGH TOUCH AREAS, ALL THE DOOR HANDLES, ALL THE PUSH BARS, EVERYTHING THAT KIDS COME IN CONTACT DAILY.

THE CAFETERIA TABLES GET CLEANED MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY.

SO I THINK OUR STAFF IS DOING A REALLY GOOD JOB.

AND I THINK THE NUMBER OF KIDS THAT WE HAVE AND EVERY EVERY CASE IS IMPORTANT TO US.

BUT THE LOW NUMBER OF CASES THAT WE HAVE IN OUR STUDENT POPULATION, I THINK, IS A TESTAMENT TO THE GOOD JOB THAT OUR CUSTODIAL STAFF IS DOING.

OK, AGAIN, AS OUR CUSTODIAL DEPARTMENT IS APPRECIATIVE OF THE ADDITIONAL INCREASE IN PAY FOR THOSE FOLKS TO TRY AND LOWER SOME MORE INDIVIDUALS TO COME TO OUR DISTRICT.

SAME HOLDS TRUE WITH OUR SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS AND WE'VE BEEN VERY SUCCESSFUL IN OBTAINING MORE STEPS. WE'RE UP TO OVER FOUR HUNDRED SUBSTITUTES NOW, WHICH IS AWESOME.

THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR, WE WERE ALMOST THREE HUNDRED, THEN A LITTLE OVER THREE HUNDRED, AND WE STILL DON'T HAVE FOUR HUNDRED SUBBING EVERY DAY.

THE MOST WE'VE HAD SUBBING ON ANY GIVEN DAY IS CLOSE TO CLOSER TO TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY, MAYBE TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY NINE IF MEMORY SERVES CORRECTLY.

HOWEVER, THINGS ARE LOOKING UP, YOU ASKED ON DAYS WHEN WE DON'T HAVE LOTS AND LOTS OF ABSENCES, HOW OUR FILL RATES LOOKING TODAY WE WERE ALMOST AT 80 PERCENT FILLED RIGHT WITH TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY ABSENCES, WHICH IS HUGE.

THAT IS THE BEST IT HAS BEEN AND I DON'T KNOW HOW LONG.

COMPARATIVELY, THE DAY WE MADE THE DECISION TO CLOSE FOR THE COUPLE OF DAYS, WE HAD FOUR

[01:20:05]

HUNDRED ONE ABSENCES, WHICH ALSO WAS ALMOST KIND OF A RECORD FOR A WHILE.

SO WE'RE SEEING LOTS FEWER ABSENCES HERE THIS PAST WEEK.

SO WE'RE TRENDING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION AND OUR FILL RATE IS GOING UP, UP, UP.

SO WE'RE SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THAT.

ANY OTHER COMMENTS? WELL, COACH O'NEILL, THIS WAS GREAT, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TRANSPARENCY AS WE KIND OF VENTURE THROUGH THIS TOGETHER, WE APPRECIATE GETTING DAILY UPDATES.

ALL OF US ON THE BOARD, JUST SO COMMUNITY KNOWS WE GET DAILY UPDATES ON THE DASHBOARD.

WE LAY EYES ON IT EVERY SINGLE DAY.

IT'S SOMETHING WE'RE VERY ATTENTIVE TO AND WATCHING WHAT'S GOING ON AND WHERE OUR FILL RATES AND ARE AND HOW WE'RE DOING TO KIND OF MANAGE THAT.

AND SO WE'RE VERY APPRECIATIVE OF WHAT YOU GUYS ARE DOING, BUT I HAVE TO SAY THAT THE WORK OF THE CUSTODIAL GROUP AND REALLY WE KNOW THE CAMPUS TEAMS WHEN WE SEE THE GREEN AS OF TODAY, CONSIDERING WHERE WE JUST RECENTLY WERE, IS REALLY PHENOMENAL.

IT REALLY SPEAKS TO THE WORK THAT THEY'RE ALL DOING AND TRYING TO PROTECT KIDS EVERY DAY.

SO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME AND EFFORT AND COORDINATING TEAMS AND THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX. IF YOU GET A CHANCE TO THANK MARGARET [INAUDIBLE] AND HER TEAM APRIL IN THE HEALTH SERVICES, THEY'RE THE ONES TO DO THE DASHBOARD.

APRIL SOMETIMES IS HERE WAY AFTER HOURS MAKING SURE THAT THAT GETS DONE, SO I'M GRATEFUL FOR THEM AND THEIR WORK. YEAH, THAT EMAIL COMES A LITTLE LATE ON SOME DAYS, SO I'M ALWAYS THINKING, MAN, SHE'S STILL WORKING.

YEAH, WE'RE SUPER APPRECIATIVE.

THAT TAKES IT. TAKES A VILLAGE, FOR SURE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. THANK YOU.

NOW WE ARE ON TO EIGHT POINT ONE PUBLIC COMMENTS.

[8. Public Comments]

THE CORRECT PROCEDURE FOR ADDRESSING THE BOARD DURING PUBLIC COMMENTS IS AS FOLLOWS EACH SPEAKER SHOULD ADDRESS THE BOARD FROM THE PODIUM MICROPHONE AND STATE HIS OR HER NAME BEFORE SPEAKING.

ALL SPEAKERS WILL BE LIMITED TO THREE MINUTES TO MAKE COMMENTS REGARDING ITEMS ON THE AGENDA. COPIES OF 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.

WE DO HAVE SOME CARDS HERE.

ANY OTHER CARDS? OH OK.

OUR FIRST SPEAKER TONIGHT IS SAMANTHA LEE.

GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE.

SAMANTHA LEE FROM THE MANSFIELD ISD COUNCIL OF PTAS AND JOINED HERE TONIGHT BY A COUPLE OF OTHER COUNCIL BOARD MEMBERS, WE HAVE [INAUDIBLE] AND JOANNA CARDOZA IN THE BACK.

AND OF COURSE, DES THOMAS IS ALSO ON OUR COUNCIL BOARD.

AND WE JUST WANTED TO COME OUT TONIGHT AND ALSO ADD OUR APPRECIATION TO OUR TO YOU, OUR SCHOOL BOARD TRUSTEES.

SO ON BEHALF OF THE MANSFIELD COUNCIL OF PTAS REPRESENTING THE 46 LOCAL UNITS IN MANSFIELD, WE WOULD LIKE TO RECOGNIZE OUR SCHOOL BOARD TRUSTEES FOR THEIR DEDICATION, DEDICATED SERVICE TO OUR STUDENTS, SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITIES.

WE RECOGNIZE THAT IT TAKES COURAGE AND SACRIFICE AND A SERVANT'S HEART TO TAKE ON A TRUSTEES RESPONSIBILITIES, EVEN IN THE BEST OF TIMES.

SO WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR LEADING OUR DISTRICT THROUGH THESE CHALLENGING YEARS.

WE ARE HONORED TO HAVE YOU.

MICHELLE NEWSOM, DESIREE THOMAS, RANDALL CANEDY, KEZIAH FARRAR, KAREN MARCUCCI, AND WARREN DAVIS AND DARRELL SNEED PROVIDE DIRECTION AND LEADERSHIP IN OUR DISTRICT.

YOU ARE OUR NEIGHBORS, YOU DO BUSINESS IN OUR COMMUNITY.

YOU SERVE ON COMMITTEES WITH US, YOU VOLUNTEER IN OUR SCHOOLS, YOU SERVE ON OUR PTAS AND YOU SUPPORT OUR PTAS.

AND IT'S YOUR LEADERSHIP WITH YOUR LEADERSHIP THAT MANSFIELD ISD CONTINUES TO GROW AND CONTINUES TO BE A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE, LEARN AND TEACH.

SO WE THANK YOU.

THANK. [APPLAUSE] [INAUDIBLE] JOANNA CARDOZA IS OUR NEXT SPEAKER.

HAPPY SCHOOL BOARD APPRECIATION MONTH.

GOOD EVENING AGAIN. I WAS SPEAKING TO YOU TONIGHT AS THE MOTHER OF A CHILD WITH HEALTH COMPLICATIONS AS WE CONTINUE TO NAVIGATE OUR DAILY LIVES DURING THE COVID PANDEMIC, KEEPING MY CHILD SAFE HAS BEEN A TOP PRIORITY FOR MY HUSBAND AND I.

I AM DISAPPOINTED TO LEARN THAT WHILE COVID CONTINUES TO RAVAGE OUR COMMUNITY WITH DEATHS AND LIFELONG HEALTH COMPLICATIONS, OUR DISTRICT ROLLED BACK COVID 19 MITIGATION MEASURES.

[01:25:04]

TARRANT COUNTY REACHED A RECORD HIGH 39 PERCENT POSITIVITY RATE THIS MONTH.

INSTEAD OF KEEPING OR IMPROVING IMPROVING COVID 19 MITIGATION MEASURES, WE TOOK THEM AWAY KNOWING THAT THE NEW VARIANT WAS MORE TRANSMISSIBLE.

WE REMOVED PLASTIC BARRIERS IN OUR CAFETERIAS.

WE REMOVE SANITATION, SANITIZER STATIONS AND HALLWAYS, AND WE REMOVE SIGNAGE ENCOURAGING THE USE OF MASKS.

TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATION IN OUR SCHOOLS ARE GETTING SICK AND ARE STRESSED, COVERING MORE THAN ONE CLASS.

MANY PARENTS IN THE DISTRICT AND I KNOW THE VALUE OF ATTENDING SCHOOL IN PERSON AND APPRECIATE AND LOVE OUR TEACHERS.

WE WANT OUR CHILDREN TO ATTEND SCHOOLS THAT ARE DOING EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO KEEP THEM SAFE AND VALUE THEIR LIVES ALONG WITH THE LIVES OF THEIR TEACHERS.

JUST LISTENING TO THE PREVIOUS PRESENTATION, IT'S A LITTLE CONCERNING THAT WHAT MR. O'NEILL IS SAYING THAT IS HAPPENING IN THE SCHOOLS IN REGARDS TO SANITATION SANITIZER STATIONS AND THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL IS NOT WHAT'S REALLY HAPPENING IN THE SCHOOLS.

SO THAT'S A CONCERN OF I THINK THAT SHOULD BE A CONCERN OF YOURS.

IS IS WHAT IS BEING SAID REALLY BEING IMPLEMENTED IN THE SCHOOLS BECAUSE THAT IS CONCERNING. THERE'S A CONFLICT THERE.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS [INAUDIBLE] CRUTCHFIELD.

TRYING TO GET UP HERE FAST, I KNOW IT'S A LONG NIGHT.

SO I'M [INAUDIBLE] CRUTCHFIELD.

THANK YOU ALL FOR SERVING.

EVERYBODY SAID IT NAVIGATING UNCHARTED WATERS.

THESE LAST TWO YEARS.

THANK YOU, MR. O'NEILL, FOR A DETAILED PRESENTATION.

IT'S A LOT. AND SO I THINK MR. O'NEILL TALKED ABOUT STRESS.

A LOT OF STRESS OVER THESE LAST TWO YEARS.

I THINK IT WAS BOARD MEMBER FARRAR THAT TALKED ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE RIGHT OF KEEPING VOLUNTEERS ON CAMPUS BECAUSE IT'S IMPORTANT.

AND SO I HAVE AN IDEA THAT WE ALL KNOW ABOUT THAT COULD HELP MASKING, RIGHT? SO I'D LIKE TO RESPECTFULLY ASK THE BOARD TO SHIFT MESSAGING OR MASKING FROM OPTIONAL TO STRONGLY ENCOURAGED.

SO BOTH IN WRITTEN COMMUNICATION AND IN SIGNAGE ACROSS THE DISTRICT.

SO EVEN IN PRESENTATIONS THAT WERE GREAT, LIKE MR. O'NEILL TALKING ABOUT THAT ASPECT OF IT, RIGHT, THAT IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED.

SO WE KNOW A STUDY CAME OUT THIS WEEK FROM MICHIGAN BIG STUDY THAT TALKS ABOUT SCHOOL DISTRICTS ACROSS THE U.S.

THAT HAVE MASK IN PLACE FOR STUDENTS SEEING A REDUCED COVID OUTBREAKS WITHIN THEIR SCHOOLS. SO WE KNOW IT'S POLITICALLY SENSITIVE, WE KNOW THAT, BUT WE KNOW THAT THEY WORK.

AND SO IF WE USE CDC GUIDELINES TO TALK ABOUT QUARANTINE AND TO TALK ABOUT TESTING, WE SHOULD ALSO BE USING THOSE GUIDELINES TO TALK ABOUT MASK.

SO DESPITE ALL OF THE REALLY INTRICATE PROTOCOLS THAT HAVE BEEN PUT IN PLACE IN MISD, YOU KNOW, SCHOOLS STILL DID HAVE TO SHUT DOWN THIS MONTH.

THEY'RE STILL OPERATING, SOME OF THEM AT RED AND YELLOW.

AND SO A NEXT SIMPLE STEP COULD REALLY JUST BE TO IMPROVE THAT MESSAGING OR TO SHIFT IT BACK BECAUSE I THINK I'VE SEEN IT BEFORE.

AND SO IF MASK CAN'T BE MANDATED, THEY CAN AT LEAST BE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED.

AND I THINK THAT MIGHT TAKE JUST A LITTLE EFFORT, BUT WOULD HAVE A HIGHER REWARD AS IT WOULD HELP ENSURE THAT THIS BURDEN EVERYBODY'S BEEN TALKING ABOUT, RIGHT? THE STRESS THAT MR. O'NEILL TALKED ABOUT IS NOT ALL ON THE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES AND STAFF OF THE DISTRICT.

AND SO I THINK WE SHOULD BE IN FAVOR OF SIMPLE THINGS LIKE THAT THAT COULD HELP CHILDREN AVOID MISSING LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES, MISSING THINGS THAT ENHANCE THEIR SOCIAL WELL-BEING. TEACHERS AND STAFF WHO SERVE OUR CHILDREN ALSO HAVE FAMILIES OF THEIR OWN.

THEY CAN STAY HEALTHY AND WITHOUT BEING FORCED TO RETIRE EARLY OR JUST BE SICK.

SO HOPEFULLY THAT'S SOMETHING DOABLE, SIMPLE LEGAL FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.

AND AGAIN, I THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

MOVING ON TO NINE POINT ONE, THE HUMAN RESOURCES REPORT, THE 20-YEAR RECOGNITION MS.

[9. Human Resources Report]

SO TONIGHT WE'RE INTRODUCING HER AS AREA SUPERINTENDENT.

YES, I THINK I SHOULD FIRST BY SAYING THANK YOU FOR APPROVING OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR FOR MIDDLE GRADE, SO I'M VERY EXCITED TO HAVE HIM HAVING ME ON BOARD WITH US.

BUT PRESIDENT NEWSOM DR.

CANTU, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE IN THIS ROLE. I KNOW THAT I HAVE BIG SHOES TO FILL.

I JUST WANT TO THANK DONNA O'BRIAN TOO FOR THE YEARS OF MENTORSHIP AND LEADERSHIP THAT SHE PROVIDED FOR ME AS MY SUPERVISOR IN BOSTON.

SO I KNOW THAT SHE HAS DONE GREAT THINGS AND MY GOAL IS TO CONTINUE THE EXCELLENCE THAT OUR DISTRICT HAS SHOWN WITHIN CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION.

SO HAPPY BOARD APPRECIATION MONTH.

AND THANK YOU FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY.

I HAVE A SUPPORT SYSTEM, A LITTLE BIT OF ONE TONIGHT.

EVERYONE ELSE IS RUNNING AROUND AT PRACTICES, BUT MY SIXTEEN YEAR OLD DAUGHTER KATE IS OVER THERE SITTING BETWEEN KRISTI AND FERNANDO.

SO SHE'S HAS BEEN, I THINK, MAYBE A LITTLE ENGROSSED IN A BOOK SHE'S BEEN READING DURING THE MEETING, BUT SHE IS HERE TO SUPPORT ME, SO I'M GRATEFUL FOR THAT.

SO THANK YOU FOR THIS.

[APPLAUSE] MOVING ON TO TEN POINT ONE BUSINESS ITEMS REQUIRING BOARD ACTION.

[10. Business Items Requiring Board Action]

THIS IS TEN POINT ONE CONSIDERATION AND APPROVAL OF MINUTES FROM THE DECEMBER 14TH, 2021 REGULAR BOARD MEETING.

MAY I PLEASE RECEIVE A MOTION MOTION TO APPROVE.

MR. CANEDY.

MS. MARCUCCI.

ANY QUESTIONS OR DISCUSSION.

MR. SNEED. I'M GOING TO HAVE TO ABSTAIN FROM THAT ONE BECAUSE I WASN'T HERE.

GOT IT! ALL RIGHT, ANYTHING ELSE HEARING NONE, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION, PLEASE USE THE SOUND VOTE OF AYE.

CANTU, BOARD OF TRUSTEE.

SO THIS RESOLUTION, WHAT IT DOES IS WILL AUTHORIZE THE SUPERINTENDENT DR.

CANTU, TO PAY EMPLOYEES THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN PAID HAVE WE NOT HAD A SCHOOL CLOSURE? SO THIS COVERS ALL OF THE SCHOOL CLOSURES, GRADES, WHATEVER IT HAPPENS WITH THE STAFF.

IT'S SIMILAR TO OUR WINTER.

ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FROM THE BOARD? HEARING NONE, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION, PLEASE USE A SOUND VOTE OF AYE.

MOTION PASSES SEVEN ZERO.

MOVING ON TO ELEVEN POINT ONE CONSENT AGENDA.

[11. Consent Agenda]

IS THERE ANYONE THAT WOULD LIKE TO PULL AN ITEM THIS EVENING? MS. FARRAR . NUMBER NINE.

ANYONE ELSE? ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE CONSENT AGENDA WITH THE EXCLUSION OF ITEM NUMBER NINE. PLEASE USE THE SOUND VOTE OF AYE.

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

SO NOW WE WILL HAVE DISCUSSION ON NUMBER NINE.

[11.9. Class Size Waivers]

DR. CANTU. WE NEED TO.

MAY I HAVE. MAY I PLEASE RECEIVE A MOTION FOR CONSIDERATION FOR NUMBER NINE? I'VE GOT MS. THOMAS AND MR. CANEDY. ALL RIGHT, TAKE IT AWAY, DR.

CANTU. OK, DR.

STOECKER, COULD YOU PLEASE SHARE SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THIS? BECAUSE I KNOW WE SAW THESE LAST MONTH IN BOARD ACTION AND THIS MONTH [INAUDIBLE] IN CONSENT. YES.

SO BOARD MEMBERS, AS WE'VE DISCUSSED DUE TO OUR TRANSPORTATION CONSTRAINTS WE'VE BEEN EXPERIENCING VERSUS TRANSPORTING OVERFLOW STUDENTS AND BY OVERFLOW, I MEAN STUDENTS OVER NUMBER TWENTY TWO IN ALL SECTIONS IN A GRADE LEVEL TO OTHER CAMPUSES, WE'VE STARTED SUBMITTING [INAUDIBLE] CLASS SIZE WAIVERS.

AND SO LAST MONTH, THERE WERE A FEW CAMPUSES AND GRADE LEVELS WHERE WE ASKED FOR YOUR PERMISSION TO SUBMIT WAIVERS AND YOU GRANTED THAT WE DID SUBMIT WAIVERS.

THIS MEANT WE ARE REQUESTING AN ADDITIONAL 16 WAIVERS AND IN EACH OF THOSE CLASSROOMS, THE CLASS COUNT DOES NOT EXCEED TWENTY THREE.

SO THOSE ARE CLASSROOMS WHERE WE HAVE ONE EXTRA STUDENT PER GRADE LEVEL IN THOSE 16 SECTIONS. I HAD A QUICK QUESTION WITH THAT, SO IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING THAT IN READING THROUGH SOME OF THIS STUFF, PREPARING THAT IN THE LAST SIX WEEKS IS IT THAT WE DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A WAIVER BECAUSE WE DON'T JUST BECAUSE WE MAY JUST HAVE TO TO RUN OUT FOR THE REST OF THE SCHOOL YEAR WITH ONE EXTRA STUDENT THAT MAY HAVE COME.

IS THAT CORRECT? IT'S ACTUALLY THE LAST 12 INSTRUCTIONAL WEEKS, OK, WHICH FALLS A LITTLE FUNNY THIS YEAR WITH OUR BOARD MEETINGS SCHEDULE.

SO IT MIGHT BE THAT WE DON'T HAVE ANY MORE TO ASK YOU FOR IN FEBRUARY, BUT IN FEBRUARY MAY HAVE TO ASK YOU.

WELL, PARDON ME IN MARCH AND IN FEBRUARY.

SO THE FEBRUARY 22ND BOARD MEETING FALLS RIGHT BEFORE THE LAST 12 WEEKS, WHICH IS FEBRUARY TWENTY EIGHTH.

SO IF WE HAVE ANY WHO FALL IN LINE THOSE FEW DAYS BEFORE WE GET TO THE TWENTY-EIGHTH JUST FOR GOOD MEASURE, I'LL MOST LIKELY ASK YOU FOR A FEW IN MARCH IF WE'RE THERE WE MAY NOT HAVE ANY. AND ALSO, YOU MAY RECALL FROM LAST YEAR THAT IT'S NOT SPECIFIC TO A CERTAIN CLASSROOM. SO IF THERE ARE FIVE SECTIONS AT BOARD, WE'LL SAY JUST FOR EXAMPLE, IF TEACHER A HAS TWENTY THREE NOW AND WE GET A WAIVER THAT IS CHILD MOVES AWAY AND TEACHER B NOW HAS TWENTY THREE AS LONG AS IT'S IN THAT SAME GRADE LEVEL.

WE DON'T HAVE TO ASK AGAIN, SO I MAY NOT HAVE TO ASK ANYMORE, BUT IT COULD BE THAT THIS CONTINUES INTO OUR MARCH MEETING AND THEN WE'LL BE SET WITH THE LAST 12 INSTRUCTIONAL WEEKS. OK, GREAT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. ALL RIGHT.

ALL OF THOSE IN FAVOR, PLEASE SAY AYE.

AYE.

ALL THOSE OPPOSED, PLEASE SAY NO CONSENT AGENDA.

NO. NINE PASSES SEVEN ZERO.

THIS MOVES US ON TO AGENDA ITEM NUMBER 12, THE SUPERINTENDENTS REPORT THIS IS FOR DISCUSSION ONLY.

IS THERE ANYTHING ON ITEM 12 THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS WITH THE SUPERINTENDENT? MOVING ALONG. ITEM NUMBER 13 CLOSED SESSION, WE WILL NOW ADJOURN INTO CLOSED SESSION
