[01:03:07]

>> GOOD EVENING, THOR ANDERSON,

[01:03:09]

6613 WHITE OAKS LANE, FRISCO, TEXAS.

[01:03:14]

I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE TWO CHILDREN GRADUATE FROM FRISCO ISD.

[01:03:19]

ONE IS SPECIAL NEEDS CHILD.

[01:03:22]

I WAS HONORED AND PRIVILEGED TO TEACH AT FRISCO ISD FOR 10 YEARS.

[01:03:28]

I TAUGHT AT THE STUDENT OPPORTUNITY CENTER

[01:03:31]

WHERE SOME OF OUR MOST CHALLENGING CHILDREN ARE,

[01:03:33]

AND WHERE THE MOST DIVERSE GROUP YOU HAVE PROBABLY EVER FIND IN THIS CITY IS.

I ALSO HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO TEACH AP PHYSICS AT FRISCO HIGH SCHOOL, WHERE I SAW SOME OF THE MOST ADVANTAGEOUS KIDS AND SOME OF THE MOST NEEDY KIDS IN FRISCO ISD.

I GUESS WHAT I WANT TO SAY IS THAT I SAW KIDS DEALING WITH DRUG ADDICTION, I SAW CHILDREN DEALING WITH IDENTITY ISSUES, I SAW CHILDREN DEALING WITH FOOD NECESSITIES, AND WHAT I SAW IS A STAFF, TEACHERS, AND A STUDENT BODY THAT TREATED EVERYBODY FAIRLY, KINDLY, AND LOOKED OUT FOR EVERYONE'S BEST INTEREST.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS MOSTLY IS THAT EVERY CHILD IS MY CHILD, EVERY CHILD IS YOUR CHILD, BUT EVERY CHILD AT FRISCO ISD IS A FRISCO ISD CHILD, AND I'M THANKFUL THEY ARE TREATED AS SUCH.

>> THANK YOU.

PLEASE COME TO THE PODIUM, STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS.

YOU'LL HAVE TWO MINUTES. YOU'RE FOLLOWED BY ANGELO LA MONTE.

>> GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS EMMA COSLIN, I RESIDE AT 2209 CROWBRIDGE DRIVE AND I'M THE PROUD PARENT OF TWO FRISCO ISD GRADS.

I JUST WANTED TO COME UP HERE THIS EVENING, IT'S BEEN SINCE JANUARY, SINCE IT WAS BOARD APPRECIATION,

[01:05:02]

IT'S BEEN A LITTLE OVER A MONTH SINCE IT WAS TEACHER APPRECIATION.

I DON'T KNOW THAT THERE'S REALLY BEEN A MONTH DESIGNATED FOR STAFF APPRECIATION, BUT I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO THE BOARD, TO OUR ADMINISTRATORS, TO THE PRINCIPALS, TO THE TEACHERS 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR.

IT'S A TOUGH YEAR.

THERE WAS A LOT OF PIVOTING THAT HAD TO BE DONE.

THERE WERE NECESSARILY SOME THINGS THAT WERE THROWN OUT BY THE COMMISSIONER THAT FRISCO ISD HAD TO DEAL WITH, SO YOU GUYS HAVE HANDLED IT WITH GRACE.

I AM GRATEFUL FOR THE LEADERSHIP THAT FRISCO ISD HAS ON OUR BOARD AND OUR STAFF, AND I JUST WANT TO JUST SAY THANK YOU.

I DON'T THINK YOU HEAR IT ENOUGH, SO THANK YOU SO MUCH.

>> THANK YOU. OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS ANGELO LA MONTE.

PLEASE COME TO THE PODIUM, STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS.

YOU'LL HAVE TWO MINUTES. YOU'RE FOLLOWED BY ANDREA STEMRICK.

>> GOOD MORNING TO THE BOARD, AND TO THE SUPERINTENDENT.

THIS EVENING I'M HERE TO DISCUSS THE GRIEVANCE I FILED WITH THE SUPERINTENDENT'S OFFICE SINCE THEY DID NOT ACKNOWLEDGE IT, EVEN THOUGH I ASKED FOR A CONFIRMATION EMAIL.

THEREFORE, I'M ASKING EACH OF THE BOARD MEMBERS AND THE SUPERINTENDENT TO PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAILS AND LET ME KNOW IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE MY EMAIL THAT I JUST FORWARDED TO ALL OF YOU.

I ALSO HAVE A PRINTED COPY HERE TO SUBMIT FOR THE RECORD JUST SO IT DOESN'T GET LOST AGAIN.

WHAT WAS THE REASON FOR THE CHANGE IN THE PROCEDURES? WERE THESE OPERATING PROCEDURE CHANGES VOTED ON BY THIS BOARD BEFORE ADOPTION? WHAT METHODOLOGY DID YOU USE TO ADOPT THESE PROCEDURES AND DEVELOP THEM? FINALLY, WITH THESE CHANGES BEING SO RESTRICTIVE ON OUR ABILITY TO ADDRESS THIS BOARD, MAY I ASK WHY THIS BOARD IS SO AFRAID FROM HEARING FROM THE CITIZENS? THEN PREMISE TO RUDER'S OPENING COMMENT, IF THIS IS NOT THE PLACE FOR AN OPEN FORUM WITH THE BOARD MEMBERS AND THE SUPERINTENDENT, WHEN DO YOU INTEND TO ESTABLISH ONE? THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU.

>> LEAVE IT THERE.

>> LEAVE IT UP THERE.

IT AT THE PODIUM PLEASE.

PLEASE HOLD A MOMENT, GOOD.

>> THERE WILL BE NO MORE WARNINGS.

YOU DO NOT APPROACH THE DAIS WITHOUT PERMISSION.

>> PLEASE HOLD ON.

>> NEXT SPEAKER IS ANDREA STEMRICK.

PLEASE COME TO THE PODIUM, STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS, YOU HAVE TWO MINUTES, YOU WILL BE FOLLOWED BY STEVEN BRONSON.

>> GOOD EVENING. I'M ANDREA STEMRICK.

I LIVE HERE IN FRISCO, I JUST WANT TO KEEP THINGS REALLY BRIEF.

>> THIS IS IT, THERE'S NO MORE WARNINGS, WE'VE BEEN WARNED.

WE NEED TO BE RESPECTFUL IN THIS BUILDING.

>> I WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR GIVING PARENTS AND STUDENTS THE OPTION OF NOT WEARING MASKS IN SUMMER SCHOOL DURING SUMMER CONDITIONING

>> PLEASE STOP. WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A QUICK RECESS RIGHT HERE.

WE'RE GOING TO TALK TO THE OFFICE AND SEE HOW TO BEST HANDLE THIS GOING FORWARD.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO CONTINUE TO DISRUPT THE MEETING.

WE'RE HERE TO CONDUCT THE BUSINESS OF THE DISTRICT.

IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE ALLOW EVERYONE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK.

WE'RE GOING TO COME BACK AND LOOK FOR SOME OPTIONS. GIVE US A FEW MINUTES.

THANK YOU FOR THE MOMENTARY RECESS.

IT IS IMPORTANT FOR US TO HEAR THE PUBLIC COMMENT.

CAN I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION, PLEASE? WE REALLY WOULD LIKE TO GET THROUGH PUBLIC COMMENT.

WE DO VALUE THIS.

IT'S IMPORTANT PART OF OUR BUSINESS.

IT DOES HAVE TO BE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION.

WE CANNOT HEAR THE SPEAKERS.

THERE'S TOO MUCH NOISE FROM THE AUDIENCE.

PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL FOR THE SPEAKERS, THEY'VE SIGNED UP, WE'RE GOING TO GIVE THEM THEIR ATTENTION, NO MORE DISRUPTING THEM.

WE WILL ASK YOU TO LEAVE THE ROOM IF YOU DO INTERRUPT WHILE THEY'RE SPEAKING.

AT THE END OF THAT, IF IT CONTINUES, WE'RE JUST GOING TO MOVE ALL PUBLIC COMMENT TO THE NEXT MEETING.

I'D LIKE TO CONTINUE WITH ANDREA STEMRICK AND SHE WILL BE FOLLOWED BY STEVEN BRONSON.

>> OKAY. GROUNDHOG DAY.

I'M ANDREA STEMRICK, I LIVE IN FRISCO.

I WANTED TO JUST SAY MY PIECE QUICKLY AND THEN WE CAN KEEP ON MOVING.

I WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR GIVING PARENTS AND STUDENTS THE OPTION OF NOT WEARING MASKS IN

[01:10:01]

SUMMER SCHOOL DURING THE SUMMER CONDITIONING AND FOR US PARENTS HERE IN THIS BUILDING TONIGHT.

MOVING UP THE CUTOFF FROM FALL TO JUNE THE 4TH WAS A REALLY WELCOME CHANGE AND WE WANT TO THANK YOU.

I WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU AGAIN TO CONSIDER ALLOWING ALL OF OUR MIDDLE SCHOOLERS TO USE LOCKERS IN THE COMING YEAR.

A BACKPACK WITH A CHROMEBOOK, LUNCH, MULTIPLE BINDERS, AND FOR INSTANCE, ART SUPPLIES ENDS UP WEIGHING MORE THAN 25 POUNDS.

I ACTUALLY WEIGHED IT.

MY DAUGHTER DOESN'T WEIGH 100 POUNDS.

THERE ARE LOCKERS AVAILABLE FOR SPORTS EQUIPMENT AND BAND, BUT ALL OUR MIDDLE SCHOOLERS NEED TO BE ABLE TO STORE SUPPLIES WHEN NOT IN USE SO THAT THEY AREN'T INJURED CARRYING EVERYTHING AROUND EVERY DAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> THANK YOU. OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS STEVEN BRONSON.

PLEASE APPROACH THE PODIUM, STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS.

YOU'LL HAVE TWO MINUTES. YOU'LL BE FOLLOWED BY JACOB

>> MY NAME IS STEVEN BRONSON, I RESIDE IN 15572 WESTERN TRAIL IN FRISCO.

I HAVE TWO GRANDCHILDREN WHO ARE STUDENTS IN YOUR SCHOOL DISTRICT.

A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO, A BUNCH OF US PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS TURNED OVER OUR CHILDREN TO THE CARE AND CUSTODY OF YOUR SCHOOL DISTRICT.

WHEN WE DID THAT, WE WERE POSSESSED OF A SINGLE OVERARCHING AND EXPECTATION.

THE EXPECTATION WAS THIS, THAT AS 12 YEARS HITS YOU WOULD HAVE RETURNED BACK TO US A COMPLETED PRODUCT CALLED A GRADUATE, WHO HAD MAXIMIZED HIS OR HER INDIVIDUAL POTENTIAL TO ACHIEVE ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE.

YOU DID ALL THAT ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE.

WHY ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE? BECAUSE ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE HAPPENS TO BE THE COIN OF THE REALM WHEN OUR CHILDREN GO INTO THE LABOR MARKET AND THE CAPITAL-DRIVEN SYSTEM THAT THEY USE TO NEGOTIATE WITH PROSPECTIVE EMPLOYERS TO ATTAIN EMPLOYMENT.

HIGH POSITIVE CORRELATION BETWEEN HIGH ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE AND GOOD PAYING JOBS.

THE INVERSE IS ALSO REGRETTABLY TRUE.

YET, WE DIDN'T BRING OUR CHILDREN HERE TO HAVE THEIR MINDS PROGRAMMED WITH ANYBODY'S PERSONAL BELIEF SYSTEM OR CORE VALUES OR POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY.

YOU GOT THE CRITICAL RACE THEORY, THE 1619 PROGRAM PROJECT, THE LINCOLN PROJECT, SOMETHING CALLED COURAGEOUS CONVERSATIONS CURRICULUM.

THEY ARE ALL NOTHING BUT POLITICAL PHILOSOPHIES.

THEY ARE NOT FACT-BASED, THEY ARE POLITICAL PHILOSOPHIES.

THEIR OBJECTIVE IS TO POISON OUR CHILDREN'S RELATIONSHIP WITH THEIR GOD AND TO DETACH THEM, SEPARATE THEM FROM THE GREAT AMERICAN EXPERIMENT.

YET WHAT WE FIND WE HAVE EXPERIENCED RIGHT NOW THAT THESE PHILOSOPHIES ARE ROOTING IN OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT, AND WE'RE HERE TONIGHT LADIES AND GENTLEMEN TO TELL YOU POINT BLANK, WE'RE NOT GOING TO TOLERATE HAVING THESE PHILOSOPHIES GO ANY FURTHER IN OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM

>> COME ON PLEASE.

>> IN 1941, THERE WAS A JAPANESE FLEET STEAMED AWAY FROM PEARL HARBOR AFTER THEY HAD CONSUMMATED THEIR DASTARDLY DEED.

FLEET COMMANDER, HADN'T REALLY A MOTTO CONVENE.

>> YOUR TIME IS EXPIRED. THANK YOU.

JACOB ERWINS PLEASE APPROACH THE PODIUM.

STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS AND YOU'LL HAVE TWO MINUTES.

YOU'LL BE FOLLOWED BY KEVIN WITT.

>> GOOD EVENING. JACOB ERWINS, COWBOYS WAY.

THANK YOU TO THE BOARD AND THE DISTRICT FOR ALLOWING ME TO ADDRESS YOU.

I COME AND STAND BEFORE YOU TONIGHT BECAUSE OF MY HISTORY IN FIGHTING CHILD SEXUAL EXPLOITATION IN 53 COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD, IN ALL 50 STATES IN THE UNITED STATES.

I CHARGE YOU TONIGHT AS A BOARD TO PAY VERY CLOSE ATTENTION TO TRANSPARENCY, PARTICULARLY IN YOUR CURRICULUM.

I'M ASKING YOU TO BE TRANSPARENT WITH YOUR CURRICULUM TO THE POINT WHERE PARENTS KNOW EXACTLY WHAT'S IN THE CURRICULUM.

THE TRENDS THAT WE SEE IN THIS NATION AND THAT WE FIGHT HAS ENTERED FRISCO.

EVIL IS IN YOUR MIDST AND THE WAY YOU PROGRAM A CHILD IS THROUGH SEXUAL IMMORALITY.

>> MA'AM, I DON'T KNOW WHO KEEP SAYING THIS OVER HERE.

YOU NEED TO LEAVE THE MEETING PLEASE.

THERE'S SOMEBODY THAT KEEPS BURSTING OUT.

>> LET US NOT SEE FRISCO, TEXAS EMBRACE THE 1970 OBSCENITY EXEMPTION STATUTE, WHERE THINGS CAN BE SLIPPED INTO A CURRICULUM WITHOUT A PARENT KNOWING WHAT IS EXACTLY TAUGHT IN THE CLASSROOM.

LANGUAGE MATTERS. YOU MOVE CULTURE THROUGH LANGUAGE AND LANGUAGE IS SHIFTING IN OUR NATION, BUT IT'S SHIFTING IN FRISCO.

I'M NOT COMING HERE FROM A PARTICULAR POLITICAL AFFILIATION, I'M COMING FROM A CHILD NEEDS INNOCENCE PERSPECTIVE.

I CHARGE THIS BOARD IN THIS ERA WHERE WE WANT EQUALITY AND WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT EQUAL RIGHTS.

WHAT ABOUT THE RIGHTS TO A CHILD TO INNOCENCE?

[01:15:02]

WHAT ABOUT THE RIGHTS TO A PARENT TO HAVE CERTAIN CONVERSATION AT HOME AND NOT IN THE CLASSROOM? THIS IS A CHARGE TO FRISCO.

I'VE SEEN THIS ACROSS THIS NATION AND 53 COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD, AND I'M TELLING YOU THE TREND IS POINTING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION IN FRISCO, TEXAS.

MAY I REMIND YOU, FRISCO WAS BUILT ON FAMILY.

THE STAR WAS BUILT SO FAMILIES CAN COME TOGETHER AND WATCH FOOTBALL.

THIS WILL RIP THE FABRIC OF FAMILY IN THIS SOCIETY APART IF YOU CONTINUE TO HAVE CERTAIN CURRICULUM WHERE PARENTS DO NOT SEE HERE.

>> YOUR TIME IS EXPIRED. THANK YOU.

KEVIN WITT, PLEASE COME TO THE PODIUM, STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS.

YOU HAVE TWO MINUTES. YOU'LL BE FOLLOWED BY CINDY HANS.

>> MY NAME IS KEVIN WITT.

I AM THE TEXAS DIRECTOR OF MASS RESISTANCE.

I LIVE AT 900 GORDON HEIGHTS LANE.

I HAVE BEEN A FRISCO RESIDENT SINCE 2005.

AT ONE TIME, THE FRISCO ISD WAS SEEN AS ONE OF THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN THE STATE OF TEXAS.

I AM SICKENED YOU ALL HAVE ALLOWED CRITICAL RACE THEORY TO BE PRESENTED, YOU ALL HAVE ALLOWED LGBT INDOCTRINATION TO BE TAUGHT IN YOUR SCHOOL SYSTEMS. DON'T SHAKE YOUR HEAD AND SAY YOU HAVEN'T BECAUSE NANCY JO LAMBERT SITS OVER THERE AT REEDY HIGH SCHOOL AND TEACHES ALL KINDS OF LGBT INDOCTRINATION AND REFERS TO HERSELF AS A QUEER.

NOW, WHY DOES ANYBODY NEED TO KNOW HER?

>> SIR, LET'S NOT TALK ABOUT A SPECIFIC TEACHER.

>> I'M NOT DONE. I KNOW THAT YOU THINK YOU ARE A DICTATOR.

>> LET'S NOT TALK ABOUT A SPECIFIC TEACHER.

>> I KNOW YOU THINK YOU'RE A DICTATOR, BUT THIS IS NOT CHINA, THIS IS UNITED STATES, AND I'M NOT DONE.

>> YOU ARE ABOUT TO BE DONE. PLEASE CONTINUE.

>> THANK YOU. ANYWAYS, IT'S NOT ANYBODY'S BUSINESS, HER SEXUALITY, OR WHO SHE HAS SEX WITH.

IT IS NOT YOUR SCHOOL BOARD'S RESPONSIBILITY TO TEACH AN LGBT INDOCTRINATION TO THE STUDENTS.

THAT SHOULD BE DONE AT HOME, NOT AT SCHOOL.

ONLY THING YOU ALL SHOULD FOCUS ON IS ACADEMICS, PERIOD.

THE SAME LIBRARIAN HAS WRITTEN BOOKS ON WHITE PRIVILEGE.

WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT, I'M WHITE AND I'M DAMN SURE, I'M NOT PRIVILEGED

>> NEXT SPEAKER IS CINDY HANS, PLEASE COME TO THE PODIUM, STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS.

YOU'LL HAVE TWO MINUTES. YOU'LL BE FOLLOWED BY

>> HI. MY NAME IS CINDY HANS.

I LIVE ON YELLOWSTONE DRIVE IN FRISCO SINCE 2002.

I RETIRED FROM TEACHING IN FRISCO ISD FIVE YEARS AGO.

I DEARLY APPRECIATE ALL THAT THE DISTRICT PAYS ATTENTION TO WE CAN TAKE GREAT PRIDE IN THE DIVERSITY IN OUR DISTRICT, AND ALL STUDENTS AND STAFF MEMBERS SHOULD BE MADE TO FEEL WELCOME IN EVERY SCHOOL AND CLASSROOM.

I'D LIKE TO ALSO ACKNOWLEDGE ALL THE HOURS OF PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT THAT OUR STAFF MEMBERS WORK ON EVERY SUMMER SINCE TEACHERS WORK MORE THAN,

>> IT'S ON YOU.

I WILL NOT LEAVE.

>> THEY'RE CELEBRATING SUPPORT.

>> YEAH. MAY I START AGAIN?

>> WE'RE DONE WITH PUBLIC COMMENT.

>> BECAUSE YOU'RE IDIOTS LIKE THAT. DON'T TALK TO ME.

I'M NOT LEAVING

>> WE'RE DONE WITH PUBLIC COMMENT.

WE'RE GOING TO END PUBLIC COMMENT.

>> THANK YOU.

>> NO

>> YES.

>> NO CRIME IS COMMITTED.

>> CALL THE POLICE.

>> TO DO WHAT?

>> SHE'S NEXT. RIGHT THERE. THAT ONE RIGHT THERE IS NEXT.

>> WHO? I DON'T SEE HER.

>> NO, THANK YOU.

[01:20:13]

>> MOTION PASSES 6-0.

ITEM K

>> NO.

>> WE'RE GOING TO COME BACK TO THAT.

ITEM I: CONSIDER AN ACT ON NOMINATION FOR TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL BOARD, TASB, BOARD OF DIRECTORS. MS GILLESPIE.

>> FOR THIS ITEM, AS YOU MAY RECALL, LAST MONTH YOU NOMINATED ME TO CONTINUE ON THE TASB POSITION 10A, FOR THREE YEARS, AND I ACCEPTED THAT NOMINATION.

GOOD NEWS, HOWEVER YOU WANT TO LOOK AT IT, FRISCO ISD NOW BECOME A LARGE DISTRICT FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW AS FAR AS TASB'S TERMS GO.

SO THAT MEANS THAT FRISCO, FROM THIS POINT ON UNTIL WE GO UNDER THAT THRESHOLD FOR TWO YEARS, WE WILL NOW HAVE OUR OWN SEAT ON THE TASB BOARD.

THAT'S A BIG MOVE FOR US.

IN TURN, WHAT I'M ASKING FOR YOU-ALL TO DO, IS IF YOU WOULD APPROVE FOR ME TO BE THE NOMINEE FOR REGION 10E AND THAT WAY I CAN GIVE 10A BACK TO REGION 10 WITH A POSSIBILITY OF HAVING ANOTHER ROLE OR ANOTHER DISTRICT WITHIN REGION 10, WHICH WE HAVE 82 DISTRICTS IN REGION 10, AND THAT GIVES THE OPPORTUNITY FOR SOMEONE TO COME ON FROM ANOTHER DISTRICT.

THAT'S WHAT THAT IS ALL ABOUT.

>> BEFORE I MAKE THE MOTION, I JUST WANTED TO THANK YOU, DEBBIE, FOR THE COUNTLESS HOURS OF TIME THAT YOU'VE PUT IN TO BEING FRISCO ISD'S FIRST AND ONLY REPRESENTATIVE TO THE TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL BOARDS.

I KNOW THAT IT TAKES AN INORDINATE AMOUNT OF TIME FROM YOUR SCHEDULE, AND YOUR PASSION CLEARLY SHOWS BECAUSE NOT ONLY YOUR COLLEAGUES UP HERE ON THE DESK SUPPORTS YOU IN THOSE EFFORTS, BUT CLEARLY, YOUR COLLEAGUES ALSO ON THE BOARD OF THE TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL BOARDS DO AS WELL, AND YOU'VE POSITIONED YOURSELF TO QUITE POSSIBLY BE THE LEADER OF THAT BOARD AT SOME POINT IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

IT IS WITH GREAT HONOR THAT I RECOMMEND A MOTION TO NOMINATE YOU, DEBBIE GILLESPIE, FOR THE TASB BOARD OF DIRECTORS REGION 10 POSITIONING

THE BUSINESS OF THE DISTRICT.

WE ARE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND MOVE TO ITEM K, DISCUSSION REGARDING THE 2021/2022 BUDGET. MRS. SMITH.

[3.H. Consider and act on the reorganization of the Board of Trustees]

>> TONIGHT IS OUR OFFICIAL PUBLIC HEARING ON THE 2021/2022 BUDGET.

MOST OF THE INFORMATION REGARDING THE BUDGET YOU WERE GIVEN AT YOUR WORKSHOP ON MAY 25TH.

I DO WANT TO BRIEFLY GO OVER A FEW CHANGES THAT HAVE BEEN MADE SINCE THAT TIME BEFORE WE OPEN IT UP TO ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU GUYS HAVE OR PUBLIC COMMENT.

BETWEEN MAY 25TH AND TODAY, THE LEGISLATURE CONCLUDED THEIR 87TH SESSION, AND ONE SURPRISE CAME OUT OF HOUSE BILL 1525 IN A CHANGE TO THE FAST GROWTH ALLOTMENT.

THIS HAPPENED ON THE VERY LAST DAY OF SESSION.

THE ALLOTMENT CHANGE WE WERE EXPECTING, THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT IT GAVE THE DISTRICT WE WERE NOT EXPECTING.

WE DID END UP WITH ABOUT $10 MILLION IN ADDITIONAL REVENUE PROJECTED FOR NEXT YEAR OUT OF THAT CHANGE TO THE FAST GROWTH ALLOTMENT.

SINCE FRISCO IS ONE OF THE TOP FIVE, I THINK, FASTEST GROWING DISTRICTS IN THE STATE STOCK.

I'VE GIVEN YOU SOME VERBIAGE RIGHT THERE, JUST SO YOU KNOW HOW IT HAS CHANGED.

BUT THAT WAS THE BULK OF THE REVISED REVENUE PROJECTION THAT I'VE GIVEN YOU.

THE BILL ALSO REINSTATED THE G/T ALLOTMENT, WHICH IF YOU REMEMBER BACK IN THE IN THE PREVIOUS SESSION, THEY DIDN'T ELIMINATE THE G/T ALLOTMENT, BUT THEY ROLLED IT INTO THE BASIC ALLOTMENT.

WELL NOW, THEY'VE REINSTATED IT IN ADDITION TO THE MONEY THAT THEY ROLLED INTO THE BASIC ALLOTMENT.

THAT'S GIVING US A LITTLE BIT OF EXTRA MONEY AS WELL.

WE'RE LOOKING AT ABOUT $10.8 MILLION OF ADDITIONAL REVENUE THAT WE WEREN'T PROJECTING WHEN WE HAD OUR MAY 25TH MEETING, WHICH IS GREAT NEWS FOR FRISCO.

WHAT WE DID NOT WANT TO DO WAS GO IN AT THE 11TH HOUR AND ALLOCATE ALL OF IT.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE REALLY THOUGHTFUL ABOUT WHAT WE DO WITH THAT ADDITIONAL REVENUE GOING FORWARD, AND MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE PLANNING FOR IT LONG-TERM IN A WAY THAT'S APPROPRIATE FOR OUR NEEDS.

WE ARE GOING TO, HOWEVER, RECOMMEND A FEW CHANGES.

I'VE INCLUDED THOSE IN THIS PRESENTATION.

THE FIRST ONE IS AN ONSITE EMPLOYEE HEALTH CLINIC.

THIS IS ONE OF THE ITEMS ON THE LIST THAT DID NOT MAKE THE CUT IN THE FIRST ROUND.

[3.K. Discussion regarding 2021-2022 budget]

AS YOU ALL KNOW, HEALTH CARE COSTS ARE GOING UP AGAIN NEXT YEAR FOR THOSE THAT PARTICIPATE IN THE TRS-ACTIVECARE PLANS.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT DOING FOR THE PAST SIX MONTHS OR SO AND WORKING, WE HAVE GOT A PARTNERSHIP NOW WITH CHILDREN'S AND UT SOUTHWESTERN THAT WE'RE WORKING ON TO PROVIDE AN ONSITE EMPLOYEE HEALTH CLINIC THAT CAN PROVIDE FREE OR LOW COST HEALTH CARE; ACUTE URGENT CARE TYPE THINGS TO OUR EMPLOYEES.

THAT COST HAS BEEN INCLUDED IN THE BUDGET FOR YOU.

WE ALSO ARE LOOKING AT INCREASING THE TEACHER RAISE BY $300.

IN THE PREVIOUS VERSION, IT WAS 1,850 FOR A TEACHER RAISE, NOW IT'S 2,150, WHICH BRINGS THE AVERAGE TEACHER RAISE PERCENT UP TO ABOUT 3.5 PERCENT.

THE REST OF THE ALL STAFF WILL STILL GET THAT THREE PERCENT RAISE.

THIS ALLOWS US TO INCREASE OUR BEGINNING TEACHER SALARY FROM 56,200 WHICH IS WHAT WE ORIGINALLY HAD IN OUR COMPENSATION PLAN DRAFT TO 56,500,

[01:30:04]

WHICH WE THINK WILL BRING UP THAT LOWER END, OUR BEGINNING OF 0, 1, 2 YEAR TEACHERS CLOSER TO THE MARKET MEDIAN.

ANY QUESTIONS ON THOSE BEFORE I MOVE ON? THE OTHER COMPENSATION PIECE THAT WE'RE RECOMMENDING CHANGING, IS WE'RE RECOMMENDING ONE ADDITIONAL ONE-TIME PAYMENT TO STAFF.

REMEMBER LAST SUMMER, WE PAID OUT WHAT WE CALL THE CARES PAYMENT.

THAT WAS THE CORONAVIRUS APPRECIATION AND RECOGNITION THAT WE PAID OUT LAST SUMMER FOR THOSE EMPLOYEES THAT WORKED WITH US THROUGH THE BEGINNING, THROUGH THE ONSET OF THE PANDEMIC AND PIVOTED ON A DIME AND SHIFTED EVERYONE TO VIRTUAL AT THE END OF THE YEAR.

WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO APPRECIATE EMPLOYEES WHO HAVE STUCK WITH US THROUGH THIS PAST YEAR AND DONE ALL THIS GREAT WORK THAT WE'VE DONE.

THIS PAYMENT WOULD BE ONE-TIME PAID OUT IN SEPTEMBER, AND IT WOULD BE FOR EMPLOYEES WHO WERE EMPLOYED ON OCTOBER 1ST, 2020 AND REMAIN EMPLOYED THROUGH THE WHOLE SCHOOL YEAR AND UNTIL AUGUST 30TH, 2021.

WE WILL MAKE AN EXCEPTION FOR EMPLOYEES WHO ARE RETIRING FROM EDUCATION FROM MAY OVER THE SUMMER.

THE PAYMENT WOULD BE EQUAL TO THE GREATER OF ONE PERCENT OF EMPLOYEES BASED WAGES OR $250.

ANY QUESTIONS ON THAT PIECE? AGAIN, THIS IS A ONE-TIME PAYMENT THAT WE'RE RECOMMENDING SO THAT REVENUE WILL BE USED THIS YEAR FOR THAT, BUT THEN IT WILL BE AVAILABLE IN OUR FINANCIAL PLAN GOING FORWARD TO ALLOCATE TO OTHER THINGS.

IN THE SUBSTITUTE BUDGET TO HELP US PAY FOR SOME SUBSTITUTES FOR SPECIALIZED POSITIONS, THINGS LIKE DIAGNOSTICIANS AND THEN SOME CLERICAL POSITIONS TOO THAT WE DON'T CURRENTLY CONTRACT WITH ESS FOR.

I HAVE GIVEN YOU THREE COLUMNS IN THIS TABLE.

YOU CAN SEE WHERE WE WERE WITH THE MAY WORKSHOP, THE CHANGES THAT I JUST DESCRIBED TO YOU, AND WHERE WE ARE IN THIS NEAR FINAL PROPOSAL.

WE DO STILL HAVE ABOUT A WEEK LEFT THAT WE CAN MAKE CHANGES TO THIS.

WE DON'T ANTICIPATE RECOMMENDING ANY ADDITIONAL CHANGES, SO ANY CHANGES WOULD COME FROM RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE BOARD.

LIKE I MENTIONED, WE DO HAVE THIS ADDITIONAL REVENUE AVAILABLE TO US.

WE WILL THOUGHTFULLY CONSIDER ANY ADDITIONAL REQUESTS THAT MAYBE DIDN'T MAKE THE LIST OF RECOMMENDATIONS THIS YEAR THAT WE FEEL LIKE AS WE GET INTO THE FALL ARE REALLY NEEDED, AND WE MAY BRING THOSE TO YOU AS AMENDMENTS IN THE FALL.

ALSO, I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT ANY SURPLUS THAT WE GENERATE NEXT YEAR, SINCE WE ARE ADOPTING A SURPLUS BUDGET, WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT, DURING OUR BUDGET WORKSHOPS NEXT YEAR, HOW TO ALLOCATE THAT TO FUTURE COMPENSATION, SO WE WOULD LIKE TO START LOOKING AT ADDING ON, EXTENDING SOME OF THOSE EMPLOYEE INCENTIVES, AND THINGS LIKE THAT THAT WE HAVE MONEY SET ASIDE FOR.

HERE IS JUST YOUR TOTAL NEAR FINAL PROPOSED BUDGET BY FUND.

REMEMBER, YOU ARE REQUIRED TO ADOPT THE BUDGET FOR ALL THREE FUNDS.

HERE'S YOUR BREAKDOWN BY FUNCTION FOR THE GENERAL FUND.

AS YOU CAN SEE, AS IS NORMAL FOR US, THE MAJORITY OF OUR MONEY GOES TOWARDS INSTRUCTION, JUST OVER 64 PERCENT WITH THE NEXT LARGEST CATEGORY BEING INSTRUCTIONAL SUPPORT.

WE TALKED IN OUR MAY WORKSHOP ABOUT BENCHMARKING AND ABOUT HOW WE STACK UP TO PEER DISTRICTS IN TERMS OF THESE FUNCTIONAL AREAS, SO THIS IS RIGHT IN LINE WITH WHERE WE WOULD EXPECT OUR BUDGET BREAK DOWN TO BE.

THEN AGAIN, JUST LOOKING AT THOSE ANOTHER WAY, THIS IS SPENDING PER STUDENT.

YOU CAN SEE THE DARK BLUE IS THE 2021 ADOPTED BUDGET.

THE PURPLE IS THE PROJECTED ACTUAL FOR THIS YEAR, AND THEN THE LIGHT BLUE IS THE PROPOSED BUDGET FOR NEXT YEAR.

INCLUDED IN THE PRESENTATION LINK THAT I SENT YOU, YOU GUYS HAVE THESE DOCUMENTS.

THESE ARE ALL HOTLINKED IF YOU WANT TO GO BACK AND PULL UP ANY OF THE DOCUMENTS.

YOU'VE GOT A COMPENSATION PLAN DRAFT, WHICH IS PART OF WHAT YOU WILL BE ASKED TO VOTE ON AT THE BUDGET ADOPTION MEETING IN ADDITION TO OUR UPDATED MULTI-YEAR FINANCIAL PLAN AND DETAILED BUDGET.

IF YOU GUYS HAVE QUESTIONS, THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING,

[01:35:01]

SO IF YOU WANT TO TAKE COMMENTS ON THE BUDGET.

>> OKAY TO GO? JUST WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR THE DETAILED DESCRIPTIONS YOU GAVE US DURING THE WORKSHOP AS WELL AS THESE UPDATES.

JUST FOR THOSE THAT ARE INTERESTED IN DIGGING A LITTLE BIT DEEPER, BUT DON'T WANT TO READ HUNDREDS OF PAGES, YOU GUYS AGAIN AFTER WE ADOPT LATER THIS MONTH?

>> YES. THE POPULAR REPORT IS ACTUALLY ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE DO WITH OUR COMPREHENSIVE FINANCIAL REPORT IN NOVEMBER.

>> OKAY.

>> BUT WE WILL BE PUBLISHING THE BUDGET BOOK WHICH WILL HAVE A BUDGET IN BRIEF SECTION, THIS YEAR.

>> OKAY.

>> FOR PEOPLE THAT DON'T WANT TO READ ALL OF IT, THERE WILL BE A SMALL SECTION AT THE BEGINNING, JUST AN EXECUTIVE SUMMARY.

>> PERFECT. JUST WANTED TO GET THAT OUT THERE. THANKS, CAMILLE.

>> FORWARD, DO YOU ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? IF NOT, WE WILL MOVE TO ITEM L, WHICH IS THE PUBLIC HEARING REGARDING THE 2021-2022 BUDGET.

WE DO HAVE FOUR WE'LL START WITH THESE FOUR PUBLIC COMMENTS AND THEN WE WILL TAKE COMMENTS FROM THE FLOOR.

IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO SPEAK ON REGARDING THE 2021-2022 BUDGET, WE'LL INVITE YOU TO THE PODIUM ONCE THESE FOUR HAVE ALREADY GONE.

THE FIRST SPEAKER IS LISA SHAFFER, FOLLOWED BY BERTHA GRAY.

WHEN YOU MAKE YOUR WAY TO THE PODIUM, IF YOU COULD PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS.

>> GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS LISA SHAFFER.

I LIVE AT 7809 VIRGINIA DRIVE HERE IN FRISCO.

I AM A SPECIAL NEEDS BUS DRIVER.

I'VE BEEN EMPLOYED WITH FRISCO ISD FOR 12 YEARS, STARTING MY 13TH YEAR HERE THIS NEXT SEASON.

SIX YEARS, I WAS A MONITOR.

I THINK MONITORS DON'T GET ENOUGH RECOGNITION.

THEY ARE SIDEKICKS.

THEY ARE RIGHT-HAND MEN.

THEY HAVE MAJOR RESPONSIBILITIES.

THE THAT HAS BEEN FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS.

YOU CAN GET A JOB AT A FAST-FOOD PLACE MAKING MORE MONEY THAN THAT WITH LESS RESPONSIBILITY.

I DON'T WANT TO GO OVER EVERYTHING.

I'M GOING TO EMAIL YOU GUYS THE LIST OF WHAT RESPONSIBILITIES THEY HAVE, BUT THEIR JOB IS REALLY OVERLOOKED.

I DON'T THINK THAT THEY GET ENOUGH INCREASES FOR WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO.

THEY PUT UP WITH A LOT.

WITHOUT THEM, WE COULDN'T DO OUR JOBS.

WE WORK WITH THE SPECIAL NEEDS KIDS; THERE ARE KIDS IN WHEELCHAIRS, THERE'S KIDS IN SAFETY VESTS, THERE'S KIDS THAT NEED SPECIAL ATTENTION DUE TO TRACHS, FEEDING TUBES, ETC.

WE'RE KIND OF NURSES.

WE COVER EVERYTHING.

BUT IN A NUTSHELL, OUR JOB IS A PART-TIME JOB WITH A FULL-TIME RESPONSIBILITY.

WE'RE ONLY GUARANTEED FIVE HOURS.

THEY'RE ONLY GUARANTEED FIVE HOURS.

WE HAVE TO BUDGET OUR MONEY BUT WE LOVE WHAT WE DO, SO WE COME BACK EVERY YEAR.

I JUST WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO TAKE IT INTO CONSIDERATION, THEY REALLY NEED A BUMP IN PAY. THEY REALLY DO.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME

[3.L. Public Hearing regarding 2021-2022 Budget]

>> THANK YOU. UP NEXT IS BERTHA GRAY, FOLLOWED BY SHERRY DANIELS.

>> HI. I'M BERTHA GRAY.

I'M A RESERVED WANDERER AT FRISCO ISD.

DO I GIVE MY ADDRESS? I'M STANDING UP ON BEHALF OF THE MONITORS AT FRISCO ISD, ASKING FOR MORE PAY.

I'VE BEEN HERE FOR 15 YEARS AND I MAKE LESS THAN $13 AN HOUR.

I HAVE TO DO A LOT OF WORK.

I WORK MY EIGHT HOURS AND I'M ALSO DRIVING, AND DOING DLT LIKE THE DRIVERS DO.

BUT IN OUR DRIVE, THE SUV AND THE REGULAR MONITORS GET PAID, PROBABLY MORE OR LIKE ME.

I'M ASKING FOR MORE MONEY AND PAY.

>> THANK YOU, MS. GRAY. UP NEXT IS SHERRY DANIELS FOLLOWED BY WANDER STRONGFIELD.

>> MY NAME IS SHERRY DANIELS.

I LIVE AT 4140 LEGENDARY DRIVE FRISCO TEXAS.

I'VE BEEN WITH FRISCO FOR 15 YEARS.

[01:40:02]

I'M A RESERVED DRIVER FOR 11 YEARS.

FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS, I'VE BEEN EITHER MONITORING OR RESERVED DRIVING BECAUSE THEY CAN'T KEEP MONITORS ON STAFF BECAUSE THE PAY IS SO SMALL.

THEY GO OTHER PLACES, SO YOU'RE PAYING ME MORE MONEY TO BE A MONITOR THAN YOU COULD PAY TWO PEOPLE TO BE A MONITOR.

I'M HERE JUST SO THEY CAN GET MORE MONEY BECAUSE THEY DO A LOT OF WORK.

THEY HAVE TO KNOW ALL THINGS FROM FEEDING TUBES TO TRACTS, HOW TO REPLACE A TRACT, HOW TO A HOW TO TRANSPORT WHEELCHAIRS, SAFETY, HOW TO PUT IN CAR SEATS FOR MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARDS.

THERE'S A LOT INTO TRANSPORTING CHILDREN TO SCHOOL ON A SPECIAL NEEDS BUS AND SAFE BACK AND FORTH.

THEY GOT TO BE LIKE THEY'RE JUST THERE AND THEY'RE ALL LOVING AND CARING PEOPLE.

THEY JUST NEED TO GET PAID MORE MONEY.

I'M HERE JUST TO SUPPORT THAT SO WE COULD GIVE THEM MORE MONEY. THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU. MS. DANIEL'S, UP NEXT IS WANDA STRONGFIELD, AND THEN WE WILL OPEN COMMENTS UP TO THE FLOOR.

>> HEY, I'M WANDA STRINGFIELD AND I'VE BEEN HERE SINCE 1970, I HAVE WORKED FOR THE FRISCO ISD GOING ON 12 YEARS AND I STILL DON'T EVEN MAKE 15 BUCKS AN HOUR.

I HAVE BEEN HIT, I'VE HAD MY ARM PULLED OUT, HAD TO HAVE SURGERY, BEEN THROWN TO THE BACK OF THE BUS, GOT MY HEAD BUSTED OPEN.

WE DO A LOT OF WORK, AND YOU STILL COME BACK FOR IT.

IT'S NOT THE PAY, IT'S THE KIDS THAT KEEP US HERE AND THAT WE LIKE OUR JOB.

BUT IT'S GETTING HARD WHEN YOU GO TO MCDONALD'S AND GET 15 BUCKS AN HOUR AND NOT HAD TO PUT UP WITH ANY KIND OF KIDS OR ANYTHING.

AM A RESERVED MONITOR.

I WORK AT ALL OF THREE PLACES: MIDWEST, STADIUM, AND ROLLATOR.

WHEN I GOT THE DEAL FOR RESERVED DRIVER, I WAS NOT GIVEN ANY MORE MONEY.

THEY GIVE DRIVERS, THEY GIVE CROSSING GUARDS MORE MONEY FOR BEING RESERVED.

THEY DO NOT FOR THE MONITORS.

IT'S LIKE THEY JUST OVERLOOK THEM THAT THEY THINK THAT THEY DON'T DO ANY WORK, AND THEY DO A LOT OF WORK.

>> A LOT?

>> YOU CLEAN UP THE STUFF ON A BUS, THE KIDS GETTING SICK, AND EVERYTHING ELSE.

YOU'RE ALMOST LIKE A TEACHER, YOU'RE THE FIRST ONES THAT THEY SEE IN THE MORNING THAT YOU GET THEM STARTED OUT ON THE RIGHT FOOT.

I HOPE YOU'VE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION THAT IT'S TIME TO GIVE THE MONITORS A RAISE AND MAYBE EVEN THOSE THAT ARE RESERVED, YOU GIVE THEM A LITTLE BIT MORE MONEY BEING RESERVED.

THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU.

NOW WE'LL OPEN UP COMMENT FROM THE FLOOR.

IF YOU HAVE COMMENTS ON THE 2021, 2022 BUDGET, PLEASE MAKE YOUR WAY TO THE PODIUM.

EACH SPEAKER WILL HAVE TWO MINUTES.

PLEASE, IF YOU WOULD STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS.

>> OF COURSE, MY NAME IS LINNEA HARTONIAN.

MY ADDRESS IS 11043 RUIDOSA LANE, AND IT'S FRISCO, TEXAS.

FIRST OF ALL, I CAME HERE FROM CALIFORNIA TWO YEARS AGO AND I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT TEXAS HAD REMAINED TEXAS, AND WHAT HAPPENED IN CALIFORNIA WITH THE SCHOOL SYSTEM HAD NOT PERMEATED INTO TEXAS.

I'M GETTING TO THE POINT OF THE BUDGET.

IT'S ABOUT THE CURRICULUM.

SO, NOW I'M HERE WITH MY FOUR KIDS AFTER TRAVELING HALFWAY ACROSS THE COUNTRY, AND TO FIND THAT I'M BACK IN CALIFORNIA.

WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF AN ISSUE WITH A NEW HIRE ACTUALLY, I THINK SHE WAS HIRED BACK IN NOVEMBER AND SHE'S THE EQUITY DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION SPECIALIST. IS THAT TRUE?

>> I'M SORRY. WE HAVE TO KEEP THIS ON THE 2021, 2022 BUDGET.

>> WELL, I'M GOING TO GO ON TO THIS DIVERSITY, THE EQUITY, AND INCLUSION SPECIALIST.

>> THAT'S NOT PART OF THIS BUDGET CYCLE.

>> SHE'S NOT IN THIS BUDGET?

>> IT'S NOT PART OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS COMING BEFORE THE BOARD FOR THIS BUDGET CYCLE.

>> OKAY. WELL, THEN I'LL TALK LATER ON CURRICULUM.

[01:45:03]

>> OKAY.

>> THANK YOU.

>> IF THERE ARE NO MORE COMMENTS FROM THE FLOOR, WE WILL MOVE ON TO ITEM L OR ITEM M, EXCUSE ME, DISCUSSION REGARDING SO3 SPENDING PLAN, MRS. SMITH.

>> WHILE WE'RE GETTING READY TO DO THAT, DR. WALDROP, WOULD IT BE ALL RIGHT JUST TO ASK TO GET SOME REPORT ON THE MONITOR BUS PAY BEFORE WE MEET TO ADOPT THE BUDGET NEXT WEEK?

>> YES.

>> WOULD YOU MS. SMITH, TO SPEAK.

>> I ACTUALLY WAS GOING TO ADDRESS THAT SUPER-QUICK IF I CAN.

>> GO AHEAD.

>> WE ACTUALLY HAVE INCLUDED IN THOSE MARKET ADJUSTMENTS THAT YOU HAVE SEEN, THERE IS SOMETHING IN THERE FOR MONITORS.

WE ARE ABOVE MARKET IN OUR PAY MINIMUM AND IN OUR MIDPOINT FOR THAT GROUP.

HOWEVER, AFTER A PAY GRADE REVIEW, WE WERE RECOMMENDING AN INCREASE.

I DON'T HAVE IT OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD.

I CAN EMAIL THAT TO YOU GUYS.

BUT I DO WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING IN THERE FOR BUS MONITORS.

>> GOOD. I DON'T KNOW IF THEY HEARD IT BEFORE THEY GOT TO LEAVE, OH THEY'RE RIGHT THERE

>> OH, THERE YOU ARE.

>> THANK YOU.

>> PLEASE SHARE THAT WITH YOUR FRIENDS THAT LEFT JUST A MINUTE AGO. THANK YOU.

>> I'LL MAKE SURE TO SHARE THAT WITH TRANSPORTATION AS WELL.

OUR SO3 SPENDING DISCUSSION, SHIFTING GEARS JUST A LITTLE BIT.

I MENTIONED TO YOU GUYS AT YOUR BUDGET WORKSHOP THAT WE ARE APPLYING FOR THE THIRD ROUND OF ESSER MONEY, WHICH IS STIMULUS MONEY.

ONE OF THE REQUIREMENTS OF THIS PARTICULAR GRANT WAS FOR US TO SEEK PUBLIC INPUT AND THEN PROVIDE YOU WITH OUR SPENDING PLAN IN A PUBLIC MEETING, SO THAT'S WHAT THIS IS ABOUT.

JUST TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND.

ESSER STANDS FOR THE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL EMERGENCY RELIEF GRANT PROGRAMS. THIS, LIKE I MENTIONED, IS THE THIRD ROUND.

THE FIRST ROUND WAS AUTHORIZED BACK IN MARCH OF 2020.

THAT WAS THE INITIAL STIMULUS PIECE.

TEA USED THAT MONEY TO SUPPLANT OUR FISCAL 2020 STATE A.

THEY USE THAT FOR THE HOLD HARMLESS FOR THAT SPRING SEMESTER.

FOR US, THAT WAS JUST UNDER $600,000 THAT THEY USED TOWARDS OUR HOLD HARMLESS FOR LAST YEAR.

ESSER II WAS AUTHORIZED IN DECEMBER OF 2020.

IT COVERS COSTS ALL THE WAY BACK TO MARCH 13TH, 2020 WHEN THE INITIAL DISASTER DECLARATION WAS MADE.

THE MONEY EXTENDS ALL THE WAY THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30TH OF 2023.

HOWEVER, TEA ALSO USE THAT MONEY TO SUPPLANT STATE AID FOR THIS FISCAL YEAR, FISCAL 2021 FOR THE HOLD HARMLESS THAT THEY GAVE US FOR ENROLLMENT.

THAT WAS ABOUT 2.7 MILLION FOR US.

NEITHER OF THOSE FIRST TWO ROUNDS OF ESSER RESULTED IN ADDITIONAL MONEY THAT WE COULD SPEND USING OUR DISCRETION.

ESSER III, HOWEVER, IS ADDITIONAL DISCRETIONARY MONEY.

[3.M. Discussion regarding ESSER III Spending Plan]

WE DO HAVE TO APPLY FOR IT AND TELL TEA WHO THEN WILL TELL THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WHAT OUR SPENDING PLAN IS.

BUT WE CAN USE THAT MONEY TO COVER ANY COSTS THAT WE'VE INCURRED FROM MARCH 13TH, 2020 TO NOW, AND GOING FORWARD THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30TH OF 2024.

FOR FRISCO, THIS IS ABOUT $6.1 MILLION.

THE STATE HAS ALLOCATED THE ESSER MONEY ACROSS THE STATE TO ALL THE DISTRICTS BASED ON OUR TITLE 1 PERCENTAGE.

SINCE WE HAVE A VERY LOW TITLE 1 PERCENTAGE IN FRISCO ISD, THAT'S WHY YOU'RE SEEING US GET $6 MILLION AND DISTRICTS LIKE FORT WORTH GETTING $260 MILLION.

LIKE I MENTIONED, FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30TH, 2024.

TWENTY PERCENT OF OUR $6 MILLION ENTITLEMENT MUST BE SPENT ON EVIDENCE-BASED INTERVENTIONS TO ADDRESS LEARNING LOSS.

THE OTHER 80 PERCENT CAN BE SPENT ON WHATEVER THE NEEDS OF OUR DISTRICT ARE IN ADDITION TO LEARNING LOSS.

LIKE I MENTIONED, THIS SPENDING PLAN THAT WE'RE PRESENTING TO YOU IS FULFILLING ONE OF THE REQUIREMENTS.

AS PART OF THE PUBLIC INPUT REQUIREMENT, THESE ARE THE GROUPS OF PEOPLE THAT WE WERE REQUIRED TO REACH OUT TO.

THERE'S AN ATTESTATION ON THE APPLICATION THAT WE INCLUDED SOMEONE FROM EACH OF THESE GROUPS.

SOME OF THEM MAY SEEM A LITTLE STRANGE, LIKE CIVIL RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS THAT'S NOT A GROUP THAT WE TYPICALLY CALL OUT WHEN WE'RE ASKING FOR INPUT, BUT IT WAS ONE OF THE REQUIRED GROUPS THAT WE SOUGHT INPUT FROM.

WE MADE SURE ON OUR SURVEY THAT WE CHECKED THAT BOX.

WE INITIALLY USED THE LEGISLATIVE LEADERSHIP COMMITTEE TO DISPERSE THIS SURVEY.

WE KNEW THAT THERE WAS GOING TO BE EQUAL REPRESENTATION FROM ALL OF THESE GROUPS ON THAT COMMITTEE.

BUT THEN WE DID ALSO ALLOW THEM TO EMAIL THE SURVEY THROUGHOUT THEIR NETWORK AND WE DID PUT IT IN A FIRST-CLASS E-NEWSLETTER AS WELL.

WE OVERALL GOT ABOUT 336 RESPONSES TO THE SURVEY.

I'M GOING TO WALK THROUGH REAL QUICK WHAT THE RESPONSES SAID AND THEN I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO

[01:50:02]

DR CUNNINGHAM TO TALK THROUGH THE FIRST PART OF OUR SPENDING PLAN.

WE ASKED WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING STAKEHOLDER GROUPS DO YOU REPRESENT.

YOU CAN SEE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE.

THEY WERE ALLOWED TO SELECT MORE THAN ONE OPTION.

IF THEY WERE A STAFF AND PARENT AND COMMUNITY MEMBER, THEY COULD SELECT ALL THREE.

FIFTY-THREE PERCENT OF DISTRICT EMPLOYEES WHO RESPONDED TO THE SURVEY ARE ALSO PARENTS WITHIN FRISCO ISD.

THEN ONE OUT OF SEVEN COMMUNITY MEMBERS WHO RESPONDED DO NOT IDENTIFY AS PARENT, STUDENT OR STAFF.

WHEN WE'RE DISAGGREGATING THE DATA, WHAT WE DID TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU GUYS COULD SEE THE RESPONSES FROM EACH GROUP INDIVIDUALLY, WE DISAGGREGATED IT FOR REPORTING BASED ON THIS FOUR CATEGORIES.

YOU HAVE STAFF ONLY, PARENTS ONLY, PARENTS WHO ARE ALSO STAFF AND THE COMMUNITY MEMBERS WHO DON'T IDENTIFY WITH ANY ONE OF THOSE GROUPS.

WE ASKED ON THE SURVEY, FOR RESPONDENTS TO CHECK THE BOX FOR POSSIBLE USES OF ESSER FUNDS.

BASICALLY, TEA PUT OUT A LIST OF RECOMMENDED THINGS THAT YOU COULD SPEND MONEY ON.

WE DIDN'T REALLY WANT TO INFLUENCE THE SURVEY BY PUTTING OUT WHAT WE THOUGHT WE SHOULD SPEND MONEY ON.

WE WANTED TO JUST LEAVE IT OPEN AND SAY, OF THIS LIST THAT'S BEEN RECOMMENDED, WHAT DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD SPEND MONEY ON? WE MADE SURE TO PUT IT IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER SO THERE WASN'T ANY BIAS AS TO WHAT WE THOUGHT WAS MORE IMPORTANT THAN OTHERS.

THEN WE INCLUDED ALL OF THE THINGS THAT WERE ON TEA'S LIST.

THEY FELL INTO THESE SIX CATEGORIES RIGHT HERE.

SEVENTY-EIGHT PERCENT OF RESPONDENTS BELIEVED THAT WE SHOULD SPEND SOME OF THE MONEY ON EXTENDED INSTRUCTIONAL TIME.

YOU CAN SEE TUTORING WAS THE FAVORITE METHOD THERE.

FIFTY-ONE PERCENT OF TOTAL RESPONDENTS CHOSE TUTORING, FOLLOWED BY BEFORE AND AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS. KEEP IN MIND THAT RESPONDENTS COULD SELECT ALL OF THE THINGS THAT THEY THOUGHT WE SHOULD SPEND MONEY ON.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO CHOOSE THEIR FAVORITE OF THESE.

SEVENTY-TWO PERCENT OF RESPONDENTS BELIEVED THAT WE SHOULD SPEND SOME OF THE MONEY ON FACILITIES UPGRADES, BUT THERE WAS NO OVERWHELMING MAJORITY ON WHAT THOSE FACILITIES UPGRADES SHOULD BE.

HERE'S THE BREAKDOWN FOR YOU.

THIS WAS THE BIG WINNER.

NINETY-TWO PERCENT OF RESPONDENTS BELIEVE THAT WE SHOULD SPEND ESSER MONEY ON MENTAL HEALTH AND BEHAVIOR SUPPORTS.

I WILL SAY TOO, THERE WERE TWO OPEN-ENDED QUESTIONS ON THE SURVEY, WHICH YOU WERE ALL GIVEN A COPY OF ALL OF THOSE OPEN-ENDED QUESTIONS JUST FOR YOUR READING.

THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF RESPONSES TO BOTH OF THOSE OPEN-ENDED QUESTIONS RELATED TO MENTAL HEALTH.

COUNSELING SERVICES RECEIVED THE HIGHEST MARK IN THIS CATEGORY.

SIXTY PERCENT OF RESPONDENTS SELECTED THAT WE SHOULD INVEST MONEY IN ADDITIONAL COUNSELING SERVICES.

ALSO, INTERESTINGLY, A MAJORITY OF STAFF SAW A NEED FOR SOCIAL WORKERS OR AT-RISK COORDINATORS.

IN TERMS OF PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT, 77 PERCENT OF RESPONDENTS BELIEVE WE SHOULD INVEST MONEY IN THIS AREA.

BUT AGAIN, LIKE THE FACILITIES PIECE, THERE WAS NO OVERWHELMING MAJORITY ABOUT WHAT TYPE OF PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT.

YOU CAN SEE THE BREAKDOWN ON THAT PIECE BY GROUP.

NINETY-SEVEN PERCENT OF RESPONDENTS BELIEVE WE SHOULD SPEND MONEY ON STAFFING.

SIXTY-TWO PERCENT BELIEVE WE SHOULD SPEND MONEY ON RETENTION AND RECRUITMENT INITIATIVES SO THINGS LIKE BONUS PAY.

I WILL TELL YOU WE ARE NOT RECOMMENDING BONUS PAY WITH THIS MONEY BECAUSE WITH $6 MILLION, THAT WOULDN'T ALLOW US TO COVER THE ENTIRE DISTRICT.

BUT LIKE I MENTIONED IN THE BUDGET PRESENTATION, WE ARE ALLOCATING SOME MONEY THAT CARES TO FIFTY-SEVEN PERCENT OF RESPONDENTS WANTED US TO INVEST MONEY TO REDUCE CLASS SIZES AND THEN ANOTHER 57 PERCENT FOR SMALL GROUP INSTRUCTION THEN TECHNOLOGY, 70 PERCENT OF RESPONDENTS BELIEVED WE SHOULD SPEND MONEY ON TECHNOLOGY.

AGAIN, NO OVERWHELMING MAJORITY AS FAR AS THE TYPE OF TECHNOLOGY WE SHOULD INVEST IN.

I HAVE INCLUDED AS LINKS TO THIS PRESENTATION OUR DETAILED SPENDING PLAN.

WES AND AARON ARE GOING TO GO OVER THIS IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF SLIDES, AT A HIGH LEVEL, THE DETAIL IS THERE FOR YOU TO CLICK ON AND FOLLOW ALONG WITH IF YOU WANT TO.

I ALSO INCLUDED THE INFORMATION FROM TEA ON THIS GRANT JUST IN CASE YOU REALLY ARE INTERESTED IN READING ABOUT IT.

I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO YOU WES.

>> THANK YOU, KIM. BOARD, AS YOU'VE HEARD, WE HAVE TO HAVE SOME SPECIFIC GOALS RELATED TO USING THESE FUNDS TO SUPPORT STUDENT LEARNING.

[01:55:03]

WE ARE COMMITTED TO MEETING THE NEEDS OF OUR STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY OUR MOST VULNERABLE LEARNERS.

WE'RE COMMITTED TO OFFERING A VARIETY OF SOLUTIONS AND SUPPORT TO ENSURE WE ASSIST OUR STUDENTS GROWTH ACADEMICALLY AND NON-ACADEMICALLY.

OUR PLAN INCLUDES A COORDINATED EFFORT TO SUPPORT THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN DISPROPORTIONATELY IMPACTED BY THE COVID-19 CRISIS.

TO ADDRESS OUR STUDENTS INSTRUCTIONAL NEEDS.

THESE RESOURCES AND PROGRAMS ARE ANCHORED IN ESSENTIAL LEARNING STANDARDS, AND THEY EXPLICITLY ADDRESS UNFINISHED LEARNING WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF GRADE-LEVEL CONTENT, RIGOR AND ACCELERATION.

OUR EFFORTS ARE GROUNDED IN TIER 1 INSTRUCTION THAT REFLECT THE DISTRICT'S VISION AND BELIEFS ABOUT TEACHING AND LEARNING.

WHAT YOU'VE SEEN ON THIS SLIDE ARE PLANS TO PROVIDE COMPENSATORY SERVICES TO IEP ENTITLED STUDENTS.

THESE PLANS CAN RANGE FROM ACADEMIC SUPPORT TO THERAPY AND OTHER ALIGN SERVICES TO MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR IEP ENTITLED STUDENTS.

YOU WILL ALSO SEE A VARIETY OF EVIDENCE-BASED INTERVENTIONS TO OCCUR DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR, DURING THE SCHOOL DAY, OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL HOURS, OUTSIDE OF THE SCHOOL YEAR, BOTH IN-PERSON AND THROUGH ONLINE ENVIRONMENTS.

ALL OF THESE ARE PLANNED TO MEET THE VARYING NEEDS OF OUR LEARNERS AND THEIR FAMILIES.

THE BULK OF OUR EFFORTS ARE FOCUSED ON PROVIDING SUPPORT IN THE CLASSROOM AND DURING THE SCHOOL DAY, SINCE WE KNOW THAT IS BY FAR THE MOST EFFECTIVE METHOD OF INSTRUCTION SUPPORT.

I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO MISS MILLER FOR THE NEXT SECTION.

>> THANK YOU. WE WERE VERY THANKFUL THAT OUR COMMUNITY PRIORITIZED MENTAL HEALTH AND STUDENT BEHAVIORAL NEEDS AS WELL, BECAUSE THAT'S CERTAINLY WHAT WE SEE.

OUR GOAL IS TO PROPOSE SUPPORT SPECIFIC TO MENTAL HEALTH AND SOCIAL EMOTIONAL NEEDS THAT HAD BEEN AFFECTED BY THE EFFECTS OF ISOLATION AND STRESS DURING THE PANDEMIC.

SPECIFICALLY, CONTRACTED SERVICES COULD SUPPORT COUNSELING SERVICES FOR STUDENTS AND STAFF.

MENTORING PROGRAMS AT ALL SECONDARY CAMPUSES AND SERVICES THEIR COMMUNITIES AND SCHOOLS AT CAMPUSES IDENTIFIED IN NEED OF SOCIAL WORK TYPE SUPPORTS.

WE'RE ALSO PROPOSING TWO TRANSITION SPECIALISTS TO ASSIST OUR CAMPUSES WITH 504 STUDENTS WHO HAVE BEEN HOSPITALIZED OR OTHERWISE AFFECTED WITH MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES.

WE'RE PRESENTING A MENTORING COORDINATOR TO ASSIST WITH COMMUNITIES AND SCHOOLS AND ASSIST OUR STUDENT AND FAMILY SERVICE COORDINATORS IN DEVELOPING AN INTERNAL MENTORING PROGRAM.

FURTHERMORE, WE'VE PROVIDED RESTORATIVE PRACTICES TRAINING THROUGH NATIONAL EDUCATORS FOR RESTORATIVE PRACTICES OVER A THREE-YEAR PERIOD TO ENSURE STAFF IS AVAILABLE TO PROVIDE POSITIVE BEHAVIOR SUPPORTS TO STUDENTS.

WE'LL ALSO CONTINUE THE TRUANCY TRIBUNALS, WHICH I'LL DISCUSS MORE IN MY IST UPDATE, AND TO ADDRESS UNEXCUSED ABSENCES.

LASTLY, WE'RE PROPOSING SUPPLEMENTAL PAY FOR COUNSELORS TO MONITOR OUR RELAY SYSTEM AFTER HOURS.

THIS SYSTEM ALERT SAYS IF ANY SELF-HARM LANGUAGE IS DETECTED THROUGH THE USE OF STUDENTS' GOOGLE ACCOUNTS.

WE EXPERIENCED A HIGH RATE OF ALERTS THIS YEAR, AND ON AVERAGE TOOK ACTION ON TWO AFTER HOURS ALERTS PER WEEK.

OUR HOPE IS WE'LL SEE A DECLINE IN THOSE ALERTS.

WE ALL KNOW THAT MENTAL HEALTH OF CHILDREN AND ADULTS HAS SUFFERED OVER THE PAST YEAR AND A HALF, AND IT'S OUR GOAL TO PUT PROGRAMS IN PLACE TO ADDRESS THESE NEEDS SO THAT STUDENTS ARE SUCCESSFUL BOTH IN AND OUT OF THE CLASSROOM. THANK YOU.

>> HOUSE BILL 1525, WHICH IS THE SAME BILL THAT I MENTIONED DURING THE BUDGET PRESENTATION THAT GAVE US THE EXTRA $10 MILLION, ALSO PROVIDES SOME ADDITIONAL FUNDING FOR NO OR LOW ESSER DISTRICTS, WHICH WE ARE ONE OF.

THE FORMULA THAT WAS INCLUDED IN THE BILL SHOWS THE POSSIBILITY OF UP TO $44 MILLION ADDITIONAL FOR FRISCO ISD OVER THE NEXT TWO YEARS.

WE DON'T HAVE ANY GUIDANCE YET ON HOW THE MONEY MUST BE SPENT, WHEN IT WILL BE PROVIDED, WHAT REQUIREMENTS WILL BE IN PLACE.

BUT I DID WANT TO MENTION TO YOU THAT IT'S SOMETHING THAT WE'RE MONITORING.

WE'VE ALREADY TALKED ABOUT HOW THESE PLANS THAT WE'VE JUST GONE OVER CAN BE EXPANDED TO USE SOME OF THAT MONEY.

THEN IF THERE'S ADDITIONAL FUNDS BEYOND THAT, AFTER WE'VE EXPANDED THESE PLANS AND PROGRAMS, WE WILL LOOK AT OTHER THINGS THAT WE CAN DO.

WE'RE JUST WAITING ON SOME MORE GUIDANCE ON THAT PIECE. THAT'S ALL.

JUST IN TERMS OF NEXT STEPS, THE APPLICATION IS DUE TO TEA, I BELIEVE, JULY 27TH.

WE WILL TAKE THE SPENDING PLAN AND INCORPORATED INTO THE APPLICATION THAT WE SUBMIT.

THERE'S NO OTHER ACTION THAT NEEDS TO BE TAKEN BY THE BOARD.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR ME OR AARON OR WES?

>> NO. JUST GLAD TO SEE THOSE PRIORITIES LINE UP FROM THE COMMITTEE THAT YOU GUYS USED OFF THE CUFF FIGURED OUT TO BE WHAT I WOULD HAVE EXPECTED.

>> THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU.

>> BOARD, WE WILL MOVE ON TO ITEM IN DISCUSSION REGARDING MAY 2021 BOND SALE.

[02:00:06]

MRS. SMITH, YOU'RE BACK AT IT.

YOU SHOULD HAVE JUST STAYED UP HERE.

>>

>> YOU DON'T HAVE TO YOU CAN SAY THERE IF YOU WANT.

>>

>> I'M NOT GOING TO GIVE YOU THIS PRESENTATION.

I'M GOING TO INVITE BRIAN GRABS, WHO IS OUR DISTRICT'S FINANCIAL ADVISOR UP TO THE PODIUM TO GIVE YOU GUYS THIS PRESENTATION.

NORMALLY, BRIAN WOULD GIVE THIS PRESENTATION WHEN WE ADOPT A BOND ORDER, BUT BECAUSE WE DID IT QUICKLY THIS YEAR SO THAT WE CAN GET INTO THE MARKET AND GET THOSE BONDS SOLD, I ASKED HIM TO COME AFTER THE BOND SALE TO GIVE YOU THE PRESENTATION, SO I WILL INVITE BRIAN UP.

>> THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU KIMBERLY MENTIONED.

TYPICALLY WE'RE TALKING IN PREVIEW AND A BOND SALE.

I GET THE LUCKY TODAY TO ACTUALLY SHOW YOU NOT ONLY RESULTS FROM OUR LAST BOND SALE, BUT JUST GIVE YOU AN UPDATE AS TO WHERE YOU'RE AT ON THE BOND PROGRAM ITSELF.

THIS IS THE LOOK AT THE DISTRICT'S BONDED INDEBTEDNESS DEBT SERVICE PROFILE.

I'LL POINT OUT A COUPLE OF THINGS HERE.

YOU CURRENTLY GOT AN OUTSTANDING PRINCIPAL BALANCE AFTER OUR MOST RECENT SALE OF $2.2 BILLION.

WHAT WE DO SHOW HERE EVERY TIME WE SHOW YOU THIS CHART IS IN RED, THE OUTSTANDING DEBT SERVICE TO THE TAX-BASED RATIO.

EVERY TIME YOU GO BEFORE A BOND SALE LEADING UP TO THAT, WE TAKE YOUR DISTRICT WITH YOUR ADMINISTRATION THROUGH THE RATING SERVICE PROCESS.

THIS IS AN IMPORTANT STATISTIC THAT THEY LOOK AT IN TERMS OF THE AMOUNT OF PRINCIPAL BALANCE YOU HAVE AS A PERCENTAGE OF THE TAXABLE VALUE.

PROBABLY 6 TO 7 YEARS AGO, THIS STATISTIC WAS MUCH HIGHER IN TERMS OF THE PRINCIPAL BALANCE FOR THE SIZE OF THE TAX BASE BUT YOU CAN SEE THAT AS YOU HAVE GROWN, THE STATISTIC ANNUALLY HAS COME DOWN EACH AND EVERY YEAR.

JUST PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT THAT 4.77 PERCENT IN REALITY IS ACTUALLY EVEN LOWER BECAUSE WE'RE USING THE 2021 CERTIFIED VALUE.

THEY'RE IN THE PROCESS, THE APPRAISAL DISTRICTS CURRENTLY OF CERTIFYING THE '21 TO '22, WHICH WOULD BRING THAT DOWN EVEN MORE.

AS PART OF THE PROCESS, AGAIN, LEADING INTO EACH OF THE BOND SALES THAT WE TAKE INTO THE MARKET, THIS IS THE RATING PROCESS WHERE EVERY BOND THAT YOU SELL IS TRIPLE RATING.

THAT'S THE HIGHEST CREDIT QUALITY RATING YOU CAN ACHIEVE BUT AS PART OF THAT PROCESS, BOTH RATING SERVICES HAVE CONVERSATIONS WITH

[3.N. Discussion regarding May 2021 bond sale]

THE ADMINISTRATION TO LOOK AT WHERE YOU'RE AT ANNUALLY LEADING UP TO EACH SALE.

FRISCO ISD BY STANDARD AND POOR'S AND MOODY'S INVESTOR SERVICES, WHICH ARE THE TWO RATING FIRMS, HAS THE HIGHEST AA, CREDIT QUALITY RATING AREAS.

THEY ONLY JUMP FROM WHERE YOU'RE IS A AAA RATED DISTRICT.

I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU IN A MOMENT HOW MANY DISTRICTS ARE AT THAT LEVEL BECAUSE THERE'S ONLY SEVEN OTHER DISTRICTS IN THE STATE OF TEXAS THAT HAVE A BOND RATING THAT'S HIGHER THAN WHAT YOU HAVE.

THE WORDS AND WHAT THE ANALYST SIDE HERE IN RED IS THEIR TERMS BASED ON THEIR REVIEW OF YOUR FINANCES, THE TAX BASE, LOOKING AT THE DEBT, HOW YOU'RE MANAGING THE ENTIRE DISTRICT AS A WHOLE.

WE STAND THE HIGHEST CREDIT QUALITY AA RATINGS.

TO PUT THIS IN PERSPECTIVE, WE'VE GOT A CHART HERE SHOWING THE OUTSTANDING TEXAS SCHOOL DISTRICT RATINGS BY MOODY'S ON THE LEFT AND STANDARD AND POOR'S ON THE RIGHT.

YOU CAN SEE MOODY'S, WHICH HAS FRISCO AT AA1, HAS ONLY SEVEN OTHER TEXAS SCHOOL DISTRICTS THAT HAVE A HIGHER RATING.

THOSE ARE FLIPPED NOTED THERE AT THE BOTTOM AND INCLUDE AUSTIN GARLAND ISD, HIGHLAND PARK ISD, HOUSTON PARK ISD REGISTERED IN ROUND ROCK.

IF YOU LOOK TO THE RIGHT AT STANDARD AND POOR'S, THEY DO NOT HAVE A TEXAS SCHOOL DISTRICT THAT'S IN THE AAA RATED CATEGORY.

WHERE YOU SIT IS YOU'RE ONE OF 27 THAT'S READY TO AA1 BY MOODY'S AND ONE OF 23 THAT'S RATED AA+ BY STANDARD AND POOR'S.

THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT BECAUSE WHEN YOU SELL BONDS, YOU'RE SELLING TO NATIONAL INVESTORS AND THEY SEE THE AAA RATING, BUT THEY ALSO SEE THE VERY STRONG UNDERLYING CREDIT RATING.

THAT DOES NOTHING BUT LEND ITSELF TO ALLOWING YOU TO BORROW AT THE LOWEST POSSIBLE COST.

MOVING ON THAT LAST PAGE, I THINK THAT YOU MENTIONED THIS BEFORE.

THE PRIMARY DIFFERENCE IN US AND THESE OTHER DISTRICTS IS THEIR GROWTH IS NOT WHERE WE ARE.

THAT'S WHAT'S LIMITING US TO JUMP TO THAT HIGHEST LEVEL.

JUST MORE ANTICIPATED GROWTH FROM THE DEBT WERE STILL SERVE.

THAT IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE.

IF YOU NOTICE A LOT OF THOSE SCHOOL DISTRICTS, LAND WISE, YOU STILL HAVE A LOT MORE GROWING, A LOT MORE BONDS TO SELL.

ALTHOUGH THEY ARE GROWING, SOME OF THESE LIKE PLANO IS AN EXAMPLE WHERE THEY'RE NOT GROWING AND ADDING AS NEARLY AS MANY SCHOOLS AS YOU ARE ANNUALLY.

WHAT THEY'RE HAVING TO DO NOW IS RENOVATE EXISTING IS BECAUSE THEY'RE JUST NOT GROWING AS FAST.

IT'S A GOOD POINT. THANK YOU.

THE NEXT SLIDE IS A LOOK AT YOUR TAXABLE VALUE HISTORY AS YOUR FINANCIAL ADVISOR.

[02:05:05]

THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT CHART THAT WE TRACK EACH AND EVERY YEAR AS WELL KNOW THAT YOU DO AS WELL.

BUT JUST KEEP IN MIND A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT I WANT TO POINT OUT HERE IS IF YOU LOOK AT COLUMN 2, THIS IS THE TAX BASE ITSELF BEFORE THE FREEZE ADJUSTMENT, AND THEN COLUMN 3 REPRESENTS THE DOLLAR AMOUNT IN GROWTH WITH COLUMN 4 BEING THE PERCENTAGE GROWTH.

WHEN WE DID THE WE WERE NEEDING THE TAX BASE WHEN WE WERE RUNNING THOSE PRE-ELECTION BOND MODELS TO GROW SOMEWHERE AROUND $1.5 TO $2 BILLION AND TAX-BASED A YEAR.

IF YOU LOOK AT COLUMN 3, WHAT WE'VE DONE SINCE 2014, YOU'VE EXCEEDED THAT IN EACH AND EVERY YEAR.

THIS IS DONE NOTHING MORE THAN ALLOW YOU TO SELL THE BONDS, AND DO SO AT THE INS TAX RATE THAT YOU PROMISED THE DISTRICT, AS WELL AS HAVE FULL FLEXIBILITY TO ADD OR SUBTRACT BONDS WITH EACH SALE DEPENDING ON THE TIMING OF EACH YEAR PROJECTS.

IN RED '21,'22 IS A LOOK AT AGAIN, THIS IS MY NUMBER.

THIS IS NOT GOING TO TRACK ANYTHING THAT YOU MAY HAVE SEEN FROM A BUDGET STANDPOINT.

THIS IS SIMPLY BASED ON WHAT COLLIN AND DENTON COUNTY PROVIDED THE DISTRICT BEFORE THE FREEZE ADJUSTMENT.

YOU'RE LOOKING AT OVER $50 BILLION AND CERTIFIED VALUE THIS YEAR.

AGAIN, THE STATISTIC THAT WE LOOKED AT, THAT 4.7 PERCENT AND DEBT TO TAX BASE, THAT 4.77 PERCENT WAS RUN ON LAST YEAR'S VALUE OF 46.

THIS IS A LOOK AT OUR INTEREST RATE ENVIRONMENT THAT YOU'VE SEEN FROM ME A NUMBER OF TIMES.

THIS IS A NATIONAL INDEX THAT UPDATES EACH AND EVERY FRIDAY THAT I SHOW YOU TO ILLUSTRATE THE TREND AND INTEREST RATES GOING ALL THE WAY BACK TO, IN THIS CASE, OCTOBER 2008, WHERE THIS INDEX HIT A HIGH OF 6.01 PERCENT.

LAST FRIDAY, THIS INDEX UPDATED TO THE FAR RIGHT.

WHAT I'VE DONE TODAY WITH THIS CHAR IS EVERY POINT ILLUSTRATED THERE IN YELLOW IS A POINT IN TIME WHERE FIRST GO HAS SOLD BONDS.

IF YOU LOOK TO THE FAR RIGHT OF THIS CHART, YOUR LAST FOUR BONDS CELLS HAD BEEN IN A MARKET THAT HAS BEEN AT RECORD LOW LEVELS.

WE'RE GOING TO TALK MORE IN DETAIL AND SHOW YOU THE EXACT BORROWING COSTS BUT THIS GIVES YOU AN IDEA BECAUSE NOT ONLY IF WE'VE BEEN SELLING BONDS FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION AND RENOVATION AND THE PROJECTS THAT YOU HAVE TO UNDERTAKE THERE BUT WE'VE ALSO REFINANCE TO CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF BONDS TO SAVE THE DISTRICT INTEREST COST OVER THE BONDS THAT WERE SOLD IN HIGHER INTEREST RATE ENVIRONMENTS BACK IN 2008,2009.

THIS SLIDE IS A LOOK AT THE BOND REFINANCING HISTORY.

AS YOU WELL KNOW, YOUR BONDS CAN BE REFINANCED SIMILAR TO HOW HOMEOWNERS CAN REFINANCE A MORTGAGE.

THEY LOCK IN AN INTEREST RATE AT A HIGH LEVEL, INTEREST RATES COME DOWN AND YOU CAN REFINANCE THOSE AND SAVE MONEY IN DOING SO.

THIS CHART ONLY GOES BACK TO 2012, IF I WERE TO TAKE THIS BACK TO THE 2007, YOU WOULD SEE EVEN MORE DEBT SERVICE SAVINGS.

THE BOTTOM LINE HERE IS THAT SINCE 2012, THIS SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS REFINANCED ALMOST $2 BILLION OF OUTSTANDING PRINCIPAL, REPLACED IT WITH LOWER INTEREST RATE DEBT SERVICE.

THAT HAS GENERATED OVER $321 MILLION OF INTEREST COST SAVINGS JUST IN THE LAST 10 YEARS.

AGAIN, IF I WERE TO GO BACK EVEN FURTHER, IT WOULD BE EVEN MORE.

NOW, WHAT'S IMPORTANT HERE IS THE ALSO THE STATISTICS TO THE FAR RIGHT.

WE'VE ACTUALLY COMPLETED THREE TAXABLE REFINANCINGS SINCE 2020, WHERE WE HAVE SET A VERY AGGRESSIVE STATISTIC THE SAVINGS AS A PERCENTAGE OF THE PRINCIPAL THAT WE'RE TAKING OUT MAKES IT WORTH OUR WHILE TO COMPLETE IT.

THREE OF OUR LAST FOUR SALES, WE'VE ACHIEVED DEBT SERVICE SAVINGS AS A PERCENTAGE OF WHAT WE'RE TAKING OUT.

IT'S BEEN ALMOST 25-30 PERCENT, THAT'S UNHEARD OF.

TYPICALLY WE PUT TOGETHER FINANCINGS AS WE CAN ACHIEVE 5% STATISTIC THAN THIS AND WE'RE LOOKING AT 20-30.

WITHOUT OUTSTANDING RESULTS AND BEEN ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF VERY LOW INTEREST RATE ENVIRONMENT.

THEN OUR LAST SLIDE IS A LOOK AT YOUR BONDS THAT HAD BEEN SOLD OUT OF YOUR LAST TWO BOND ELECTIONS ON A SERIES BY SERIES BASIS.

IF YOU LOOKED AT THAT THIRD COLUMN, THIS IS THE 2014 ELECTION WHERE YOU STARTED WITH 775 MILLION.

YOU ARE DOWN TO HAVING A BALANCE OF 26 BILLION THAT CAN BE SOLD AT AN ELECTION TO THE FAR RIGHT, YOU'VE GOT TO 2018 SERIES OR YOU STARTED WITH 691 MILLION AND YOU HAVE JUST UNDER 314 MILLION LEFT.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE AVERAGE INTEREST RATE COLUMN, WHEN WE BUILD THOSE BONDS MODELS IN 2014 AND 2018, WE WERE ASSUMING THAT OVER THE COURSE OF THAT TIME WE'D BE SELLING AT INTEREST RATES THAT RANGE BETWEEN 4.5 AN 5 PERCENT.

EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE SERIES OF BONDS HAS BEEN LESS THAN FOUR PERCENT.

IF YOU LOOK AT OUR LAST TWO BOND SALES, YOU'VE LOCKED IN INTEREST RATES OF LESS THAN TWO PERCENT ON 30 YEAR FIXED DEBT.

[02:10:01]

VERY LOW AND VERY GOOD RESULTS, THE BOTTOM LINE HERE IS THAT GOING INTO NOT ONLY COMPLETING THE AUTHORIZATIONS OUT OF THESE TWO WITH ANY FUTURE DEBT ISSUANCES, THE REFINANCING, THE LOW BORROWING COSTS HAS PUT YOU IN THE POSITION THAT YOU'RE IN TO CONTINUE TO SET THE INS TAX RATE WELL BELOW WHAT YOU PROJECTED IN EITHER ONE OF THOSE ELECTIONS TO THE VOTERS.

WITH THAT, I'LL ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU HAVE FOR ME THIS EVENING.

>> BRIAN, JUST APPRECIATE THE GOOD WORK THAT YOU GUYS CONTINUE TO DO FOR US YEAR IN AND YEAR OUT.

MY QUESTION REALLY ISN'T FOR YOU, I'M SORRY ABOUT THAT, BUT MRS. SMITH, WE TALKED ABOUT IT AT THE BUDGET WORKSHOP, BUT WORTH REPEATING AGAIN.

LAST TIME THAT WE WENT OUT TO THE VOTERS AND GOT APPROVAL TO CONTINUE TO FUND THAT GROWTH OF THE DISTRICT, WE HAD PROMISED AT THE TIME THAT WE FELT CONFIDENT THAT WE WOULD BE ABLE TO HOLD THE INS RATE FOR HOW MANY YEARS?

>> AT THE TIME WE SAID TWO TO FIVE YEARS.

>> OKAY.

>> WE FELT LIKE IT WAS PROBABLY GOING TO BE THREE, WAS THE MAXIMUM WE ARE GOING INTO YEAR 4.

>> THIS WOULD BE THE FOURTH YEAR THAT WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO HOLD STEADY ON THAT.

>> CORRECT.

>>

>> YES.

BASED ON OUR TAXABLE VALUE PRODUCTIONS TODAY, WE THINK WE'LL PROBABLY HIT FIVE AS WELL.

>> IT'S GREAT NEWS. IT ALLOWS US TO SAVE THE TAXPAYERS OF FRISCO ISD A TON OF MONEY, AND IT'S HARD WORK THAT DOES THAT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR GIVING US THE ADVICE THAT YOU HAVE, APPRECIATE IT.

>> I APPRECIATE THE TIME AND APPRECIATE DR.

>> THANK YOU, BRIAN. WERE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? IF NOT, WE WILL MOVE TO ITEM O, DISCUSSION REGARDING THE MULTI-TIERED SYSTEMS OF SUPPORT FRAMEWORK. DR. CUNNINGHAM.

>> GOING TO TURN THE PODIUM OVER TO DR. ANGELA ROMNEY, OUR MAIN DIRECTOR OF ACADEMIC SERVICES.

>> THANK YOU AND THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE A BRIEF UPDATE ON FRISCO ISD'S MULTI-TIERED SYSTEM OF SUPPORT OR MTSS.

TWO YEARS AGO WE WERE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO ADD AN MTSS COORDINATOR POSITION AND IN THAT ROLE, FORMALIZE AND DEVELOP OUR DISTRICTS MTSS FRAMEWORK THAT PROVIDES GUIDANCE AND SUPPORT FOR CAMPUSES AS THEY IDENTIFY AND SUPPORT STUDENTS WITH ACADEMIC AND NON-ACADEMIC NEEDS, SUCH AS SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL, AND BEHAVIORAL NEEDS.

WHILE WE'VE ALWAYS SUPPORTED STRUGGLING STUDENTS, THE MTSS FRAMEWORK PROVIDES US WITH ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE ON HOW TEACHERS, COUNSELORS AND ADMINISTRATORS AND STAFF CAN COLLABORATIVELY SUPPORT STUDENTS WITH APPROPRIATE INTERVENTIONS.

ADDITIONALLY, WE WILL BE UTILIZING A NEW SOFTWARE SYSTEM FRONT LINE TO DOCUMENT A MONITOR STUDENT'S GROWTH AND RESPONSE TO INTERVENTIONS.

TRAINING THROUGHOUT THE YEAR FOR DISTRICT AND CAMPUS ADMINISTRATORS AND TEACHERS.

I'M PLEASED TO HAVE NEWLY GERHARD HERE TONIGHT TO PROVIDE A FEW MORE DETAILS INTO THE MTSS WORK.

>> THANK YOU, DR. ROMNEY, BOARD, IT IS MY PLEASURE TO PRESENT TO YOU OUR MULTI-TIERED SYSTEM OF SUPPORT TO SUPPORT ALL STUDENTS ACROSS THE DISTRICT.

FRISCO ISD HAVE TRANSITIONED INTO A PARADIGM SHIFT IN SETTING HIGH EXPECTATIONS THROUGH INTENTIONAL REDESIGN OF INTERGRATED, TIERED SUPPORT AND SERVICES FOR ALL STUDENTS.

A MULTI-TIERED SYSTEM OF SUPPORT IS A FRAMEWORK THAT ENCOMPASSES SUPPORT FOR THE WHOLE CHILD THAT TAKES INTO ACCOUNT ACADEMICS, BEHAVIOR, AND SOCIAL EMOTIONAL SUPPORTS.

IN 2019, FRISCO ISD ESTABLISHED THE MTSS DISTRICT COMMITTEE TO BEGIN THE TASK OF BUILDING A MULTI-TIERED FRAMEWORK TO ASSIST AND SUPPORT SCHOOLS PROACTIVELY IDENTIFYING AND ADDRESSING THE STRENGTHS AND NEEDS OF ALL STUDENTS BY OPTIMIZING DATA-DRIVEN DECISION-MAKING, PROGRESS MONITORING AND THE USE OF EVIDENCE BASED SUPPORTS AND STRATEGIES WITH INCREASING INTENSITY TO SUSTAIN STUDENT GROWTH.

THIS YEAR, THE DISTRICT COMMITTEE HAS IDENTIFY TRENDS AND ASSESS NEEDS, COLLABORATE IT WITH VARIOUS DEPARTMENTS, TO ENSURE A COMMON LANGUAGE AND UNDERSTANDING.

[3.O. Discussion regarding the Multi-Tier Systems of Support (MTSS) Framework]

ANALYZE INTERVENTION SUPPORTS DATA, AND DETERMINE ITS EFFECTIVENESS.

FACILITATED CONTINUOUS DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT RELATED TO TIERED SYSTEM OF SUPPORT, AND COORDINATED DISTRICT-WIDE INITIATIVES.

WE'VE REVIEWED AND ANALYZED CURRENT PROCESSES TO IDENTIFY AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT, AND ADDRESS PROFESSIONAL LEARNING NEEDS, AS IT RELATES TO MTSS.

AS WE CONTINUE, THE PARADIGM SHIFT REALLY ENCOMPASSES THE STRUCTURES AND SUPPORTS,

AND PROCEDURES THAT OFFER TARGETED SUPPORT SO THAT EVERY STUDENT CAN ACHIEVE IN FRISCO ISD.

THE MTSS FRAMEWORK IS PREVENTATIVE IN NATURE AND PROACTIVE AND BY PROVIDING ALL STUDENTS WITH ENRICHMENT AND INTERVENTION SUPPORT TO ADDRESS THE WHOLE CHILD.

INCLUDING STUDENTS WHO RECEIVE ADDITIONAL SERVICES THROUGH 504, BILINGUAL, ADVANCED ACADEMICS, AND SPECIAL EDUCATION.

AS A RESULT, THE FOCUS OF MTSS IS TO ENSURE A STRONG TIERED SYSTEM TO SUPPORT ALL STUDENTS AT ANYTIME, WHENEVER THEY NEED IT, WHEN THEY NEED IT, WE ARE ABLE TO PROVIDE THOSE SUPPORTS FOR THEM.

FINALLY, THE GOAL OF MTSS IS TO ENSURE THAT ALL STUDENTS BY NAME AND NEED, WILL LEARN AT HIGH LEVELS BY MAINTAINING A SYSTEMATIC DISTRICT SUPPORT, THROUGH ONGOING COLLABORATION INVOLVING ALL STAKE HOLDERS.

THAT MEAN WE TOGETHER TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS, AND ALL STAFF, COMMUNITY PARTNERS, WILL ENSURE THAT ALL STUDENTS RECEIVE THE SUPPORT THEY NEED WITHIN A MULTI-TIERED SYSTEM OF SUPPORT.

THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK BEFORE YOU TODAY, AND I APPRECIATE IT. THANK YOU.

>> DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR US? FOR ANY QUESTION?

>> WE WILL MOVE TO ITEM P, DISCUSSION REGARDING UPDATE ON INTERNAL AUDIT DEPARTMENT ACTIVITY, MR. GRUBER.

>> THE INTERNAL AUDIT DEPARTMENT FOR THE LAST QUARTER OF THIS YEAR 2021.

AS YOU CAN SEE, AS WE USUALLY START OFF WITH HERE, HOW WE'RE PROGRESSING THROUGH THE AUDIT PLAN, WE COMPLETED AND FINALIZED TWO AUDITS DURING THE QUARTER, WHICH WERE SPECIAL EDUCATION AND HUMAN RESOURCES, YOU RECEIVE THOSE REPORTS DURING THE QUARTER AND YOU HAVE THOSE IN YOUR MATERIALS AS WELL TONIGHT.

TWO AUDITS ARE IN PROGRESS.

BOTH OF THOSE ARE IN FIELDWORK STAGE, THOSE ARE FEDERAL PROGRAMS AND ALSO LOOKING AT IN OUR FLEET OPERATIONS.

MOVING ONTO RECOMMENDATION TRACKING, FISCAL YEAR '19, WE'VE MADE SOME GOOD PROGRESS THERE, WE'RE 91 PERCENT.

THERE'S A COUPLE OF THOSE ARE GOING TO TAKE A LITTLE BIT LONGER, BUT WE'RE DEFINITELY MOVED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION ON THOSE.

FISCAL YEAR '20, WE ARE ABOUT 59 PERCENT, SO WE'VE ALSO MOVED A LITTLE ON THAT, AS WELL.

I THINK UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT WE WENT THROUGH PREVIOUSLY WE'RE REALLY MOVED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

THIS SLIDE JUST SHOWS A LITTLE FURTHER DETAIL ABOUT WHICH AUDITS HAVE OUTSTANDING RECOMMENDATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH THEM, AND YOU ALSO HAVE SOME DETAIL IN YOUR MATERIALS ABOUT THE STATUS OF THOSE.

LIGHTHOUSE ACTIVITY, WHICH IS OUR FRAUD ETHICS AND COMPLIANCE HOT-LINE.

FOR FISCAL YEAR 21, WE HAD 12 INCIDENT REPORTS THAT CAME THROUGH.

THREE WERE SUBSTANTIATED AND 9 WERE UNSUBSTANTIATED.

THAT'S TYPICAL FOR A HOT-LINE.

YOU'RE DEFINITELY NOT GOING TO GET A 100 PERCENT THAT ARE SUBSTANTIATED.

THAT'S THE LIGHTHOUSE.

THE LAST TIME I HAVE FOR THE UPDATE IS THE ORGANIZATIONAL INDEPENDENCE OF THE INTERNAL AUDIT DEPARTMENT.

G VOD EXECUTIVE, WHICH MUST CONFIRM TO THE BOARD AT LEAST ANNUALLY THE ORGANIZATIONAL INDEPENDENCE OF THE AUDIT ACTIVITY.

ORGANIZATIONAL INDEPENDENCE IS EFFECTIVELY ACHIEVED WHEN THE CHIEF AUDIT EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONALLY REPORTS TO THE BOARD, AND I DEFINITELY DO THAT.

YOU APPROVE MY PAY, YOU APPROVE MY BUDGET, YOU APPROVE THE AUDIT PLAN AND HAVE AUDIT COMMITTEE ALL OF THOSE THINGS.

THERE'S NO QUESTION ABOUT THAT.

THE INTERNAL AUDIT AUDIT ACTIVITY ALSO MUST BE FREE FROM INTERFERENCE, IN DETERMINING SCOPE OF INTERNAL AUDITING, PERFORMING WORK, AND COMMUNICATION RESULTS.

[3.P. Discussion regarding update on Internal Audit Department activity]

YOU HAVE A LETTER IN YOUR MATERIALS THAT CONFIRMS THAT I HAVE NOT HAD ANY INTERFERENCE FROM ADMINISTRATORS, ANYTHING LIKE THAT, RELATED TO SCOPES FOR WARMING WORK OR COMMUNICATING RESULTS.

THAT CONCLUDES MY UPDATE.

>> FOR ANY QUESTIONS.

>> NO, ANDREW. JUST THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK IN COMMITTEE THIS YEAR. IT WAS GOOD OUT OF YOU.

>> THANKS.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH. MOVE TO ITEM Q DISCUSSION REGARDING DISTRICT OF INNOVATION PROPOSED AMENDMENTS, DR. WITTON.

>> THANK YOU. THE DISTRICT OF INNOVATION COMMITTEE MET TWICE THIS YEAR TO CONSIDER PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO OUR CURRENT LOCAL INNOVATION PLAN.

THOSE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS WERE DEVELOPED BASED ON STAFF INPUT, AND ALSO LOOKING AT THE ALLOWANCES THAT WE HAVE WITHIN STATE GUIDELINES.

THE COMMITTEE HAS ALREADY APPROVED THE PROPOSALS,

[02:20:02]

AND TONIGHT WE HAVE REPRESENTATIVES WHO WILL PRESENT TO YOU WHAT THOSE AMENDMENTS ARE, AND PROVIDE YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU HAVE.

WE HAVE DR. TIJUANA KINDLE, AND MS. CHARS HUNT, WHO WORKED WITH OUR ADMINISTRATORS TO DISCUSS ONE OF THE PROPOSALS THAT WILL COME BEFORE YOU.

>> WHICH ONE HERE

>> WE'VE GOT SIGNED OUT.

>> THIS IS MY DAILY EXPERIENCE WITH GOOGLE DOCS.

>>

>> YEAH.

DID YOU PUT IT ON THERE? OF COURSE, WE'RE ALL LOOKING THROUGH. OH THERE IT IS.

>> THAT MAKES IT A LOT EASIER.

>> THANKS, MELISSA. HI, THANK YOU FOR LETTING US BE HERE TONIGHT.

AS YOU ALL KNOW HOUSE BILL 1842, WHICH PASSED IN 2015 ALLOW DISTRICTS TO ASK FOR CERTAIN EXEMPTIONS FROM THE TEXAS EDUCATION CODE TO MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR STUDENTS AND, OF COURSE, LOCAL COMMUNITIES.

WE'RE JUST GOING TO TOUCH ON THAT A LITTLE BIT.

THE DOI AMENDMENT PROCESS, BASICALLY WHAT HAPPENS IS PEOPLE COME TO THE DOI FACILITATORS, JOANNA AND MYSELF, AND TO DISTRICT LEADERSHIP AND OFFER SUGGESTIONS FOR PROPOSALS AND VOTES.

THE SECOND STEP, WE LOOK AT THOSE.

THEN WE PLACE THOSE PROPOSALS BEFORE OUR COMMITTEE, THE DOI COMMITTEE, AND THEN ONCE THEY REVIEW THOSE AND VOTE ON THOSE, WE PUT THEM ON THE DISTRICT WEBSITE FOR 30 DAYS.

THEY HAVE BEEN ON THERE FOR 30 DAYS.

THEN WE PROPOSE THE AMENDMENTS TO THE BOARD AND THEN, OF COURSE, YOU CONSIDER THOSE AND THEN VOTE ON THE APPROVAL.

[3.Q. Discussion regarding District of Innovation (DOI) proposed amendments.]

CURRENTLY WE HAVE NINE EXEMPTIONS ALREADY SINCE 2016, SINCE THE INDUCTION OF THE HOUSE BILL 1872 AND THOSE ARE OUR CURRENT EXEMPTIONS THAT WE HAVE PRESENT.

>> GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS JOANNA KENDALL.

AS A PART OF OUR PROCESS THIS YEAR, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE NEEDED TO DO WAS TO GO BACK AND LOOK AT SOME OF OUR WORDING.

THAT'S WHAT YOU'LL SEE IN THIS INITIAL SLIDE.

CURRENTLY, IN 2019, THIS PARTICULAR MOTION WAS APPROVED AND IT SAID FOREIGN LANGUAGE.

OUR REQUEST IS TO ALIGN IT WITH TA WORDING AND TO TRANSITION FROM FOREIGN LANGUAGE AS THE STATEMENT TO WORLD LANGUAGES, WHICH REFLECTS THE WAY THAT TA IS CURRENTLY WORDING WHEN IT REFERS TO ANY LANGUAGES OTHER THAN ENGLISH.

THAT WOULD BE THE FIRST REQUEST IN JUST LOOKING AT THAT WORDING.

THAT ACTUALLY DOESN'T REQUIRE A VOTE BUT BECAUSE IT WAS A CHANGE TO THE AMENDMENT, WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT AS A DISTRICT, WE WERE BEING CLEAR AND TRANSPARENT.

THAT INFORMATION WAS POSTED ON THE WEBSITE ALONG WITH EVERYTHING ELSE AS A REQUEST TO CHANGE.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, LOOKING AT OUR NEXT ONE, THIS AMENDMENT WAS ALSO APPROVED IN 2019.

IT'S IN REGARD TO PROBATIONARY CONTRACTS.

I KNOW YOU GUYS ARE PROBABLY LOOKING THIS AS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT THAN MAYBE THE ORDER THAT YOU HAVE BECAUSE THESE ARE NOT NECESSARILY CHANGES THAT HAVE TO BE VOTED ON, BUT THEY DO NEED TO BE CLARIFIED.

THIS IS IN REGARDS TO PROBATIONARY CONTRACTS.

IN OUR 2019 VOTE, IT STATED THAT WE WOULD PROVIDE ALL NEW TEACHERS.

ACCORDING TO THE LANGUAGE ENCODE, WHEN WE REFER TO TEACHERS, IT IS BROADER THAN JUST THOSE THAT ARE IN THE CLASSROOM.

BUT WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WAS ALSO VERY CLEAR TO EVERYONE AS THEY READ THAT.

THE RECOMMENDATION IS THAT WE CHANGE PROVIDE ALL NEW TEACHERS TO PROVIDE ALL RETURNING AND NEW EMPLOYEES WHO ARE ELIGIBLE FOR A CONTRACT.

IT IS CLEAR THAT IT IS BEYOND JUST THE CLASSROOM TEACHER THAT THIS WOULD APPLY TO ALL THOSE THAT ARE ELIGIBLE FOR A CONTRACT WITH THE DISTRICT AFTER THEIR FIRST YEAR.

WITH THAT, WE DO HAVE A PROPOSED AMENDMENT THAT IS NEW THIS YEAR, AND

>> THANK YOU, JOANNA.

I'LL BE VERY QUICK BECAUSE THIS IS A PROPOSAL FOR WHICH YOU PROBABLY BE VERY FAMILIAR.

IT'S VERY SIMILAR TO WHAT WE DID A FEW YEARS BACK FOR LESS THAN ANNUAL APPRAISALS FOR TEACHERS.

WHAT WE'RE PROPOSING NOW IS LESS THAN ANNUAL APPRAISALS FOR CERTAIN ADMINISTRATORS.

THAT WOULD INCLUDE ANY GROUP OF ADMINISTRATORS, ASSISTANT PRINCIPALS, PRINCIPALS, FORWARD.

I BELIEVE YOU HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO ALREADY REVIEW THIS PROPOSAL,

[02:25:05]

SO I WON'T READ IT TO YOU.

I CANNOT GO BACKWARDS.

THE FIRST ONE, CONSIDERATION NUMBER 1, IS FOR LESS THAN ANNUAL APPRAISALS OF CERTAIN ADMINISTRATORS.

THOSE ARE PEOPLE THAT MAYBE AN ADMINISTRATOR THAT ARE NOT A PRINCIPLE.

THE SECOND PAGE IS FOR THOSE THAT ARE PRINCIPALS AND ASSISTANT PRINCIPALS.

>> THOSE ARE THE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN PUT FORTH AS MS. SHARED TO THE COMMITTEE AND THEN BROUGHT FORTH TO YOU FOR CONSIDERATION.

WE WOULD ASK THAT AT A FUTURE MEETING, YOU WOULD CONSIDER A VOTE ON THESE ITEMS. ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> I ACTUALLY JUST HAVE ONE.

WITH ALL OF THE DOI AMENDMENTS, ONCE THEY'RE ADOPTED, WHAT IS THE PROCESS, FOR THE APPRAISALS ESPECIALLY, IF YOU DECIDE THAT THAT'S NOT WORKING FOR CERTAIN DEPARTMENTS, WHAT IS OUR RECOURSE WITH THAT?

>> WITH ANY DOI, WE HAVE THE OPTION TO COME BACK AND REVISIT THAT AND MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CHANGE AS NEEDED.

WE HAVE THE OPTION TO HAVE IT GO ON FOR FIVE YEARS OR UNTIL THE END OF THIS ONE, WHICH IS 2022 ACTUALLY, BECAUSE WE'RE ALREADY UNDER OUR FIVE-YEAR PERIOD.

BUT IF WE CHOSE TO MAKE A RECOMMENDATION FOR CHANGE, WE COULD DO THAT AT ANYTIME.

>> WE'RE NOT RESTRICTED TO A FIVE-YEAR WINDOW?

>> NO. THE AMENDMENT ACTUALLY GOES INTO EFFECT AS SOON AS THE BOARD VOTES.

AFTER YOU GUYS VOTE AND MAKE WHATEVER DECISIONS THAT YOU CHOOSE TO, THEN WE HAVE TO NOTIFY TA THAT THE BOARD VOTE HAS BEEN TAKEN.

THEN THEY JUST PUT THAT WITH THE REST OF OUR INFORMATION AS A DISTRICT.

>> AWESOME. BOARD, DO YOU ANY MORE QUESTIONS?

>> I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE ONE CLARIFICATION IF THAT'S OKAY.

WITH THE CERTAIN ADMINISTRATORS, THE STATE DOES NOT DEFINE WHO CERTAIN ADMINISTRATORS ARE SO WE ARE LOOKING AT THIS EXEMPTION FOR ALL CERTIFIED PROFESSIONALS WHO ARE UNDER CONTRACT.

THAT WOULD INCLUDE THOSE WHO ARE IN CENTRAL ADMINISTRATION, WHICH MAY INCLUDE SOME OF OUR FACILITATORS OUR DIAGNOSTICIANS.

IT WOULD ENCOMPASS THAT GROUP OF PROFESSIONALS.

I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT THAT WAS CLEAR BECAUSE WHEN WE THINK OF ADMINISTRATORS, WE HAVE A CERTAIN THING IN OUR MIND.

WHEREAS IN THIS CASE IT'S A LITTLE BIT BROADER.

>> THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU.

BOARD WILL MOVE TO ITEM R CONSIDER AN ACT ON BUDGET TRANSFERS AND AMENDMENTS FOR THE 2020/2021 BUDGET, MRS. SMITH.

THANK YOU. AT THIS TIME EVERY YEAR, YOU GUYS REMEMBER THAT WE ADD WHAT WE CALL A FINAL BUDGET AMENDMENT JUST TO ENSURE THAT OVER THE SUMMER AS WE'RE CLOSING THE BOOKS, WE DON'T ACCIDENTALLY GO OVER THE BUDGET IN ANY GIVEN FUNCTION DURING A TIME WHEN YOU GUYS DON'T HAVE A REGULAR BOARD MEETING.

IN THIS AMENDMENT, YOU WILL SEE THAT WE HAVE PUT FIVE MILLION DOLLARS IN AND THROUGHOUT VARIOUS FUNCTIONS JUST TO GIVE US SOME CAUTION TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CAN CLOSE OUR BOOKS WITHOUT NEEDING TO COME BACK TO YOU WITH A BUDGET AMENDMENT.

THERE ARE ALSO TWO OTHER SMALLER AMENDMENTS IN THIS REPORT, THERE'S A $12,634 AMENDMENT FOR THE TEACHER INCENTIVE ALLOTMENT.

IF YOU GUYS REMEMBER, IN THE LAST LEGISLATIVE SESSION, 86 SESSION, STATE PASSED THE TEACHER INCENTIVE ALLOTMENT, WHERE LOCAL DISTRICTS CAN CREATE A DESIGNATION SYSTEM TO PROVIDE TEACHERS WITH A STIPEND THAT COMES DIRECTLY FROM THE STATE FOR THOSE TEACHERS THAT ARE IN THAT DESIGNATION.

FRISCO ISD DOES NOT HAVE A DESIGNATION SYSTEM IN PLACE YET.

WE ARE IN THE PLANNING PHASES OF CREATING ONE.

HOWEVER, WE DO HAVE TEACHERS COMING TO US FROM OTHER DISTRICTS THAT ALREADY HAVE DESIGNATION SYSTEMS OR THAT HAVE A NATIONAL BOARD CERTIFICATION WHICH AUTOMATICALLY GIVES YOU THAT STIPEND.

THIS MONEY COMES DIRECTLY FROM THE STATE AND IT'S PAID TO THE TEACHERS, BUT WE'RE REQUIRED TO ADOPT IT INTO OUR BUDGET BEFORE WE PAY IT OUT.

THAT'S WHAT THAT'S FOR, AND YOU'LL SEE THAT AGAIN HAPPENING EVERY YEAR ABOUT THIS TIME FOR THE GROUP OF TEACHERS THAT TEA SENDS US THE LIST OF, AND THEN THE OTHER ONE IS AN INCREASE OF ABOUT $300,000 FOR SRO SERVICES.

THIS IS JUST TO FINISH OUT OUR ANNUAL PAYMENT TO THE CITY OF FRISCO, WHICH YOU GUYS KNOW WE SHARE THE COST OF OUR SROS WITH THE CITY, AND A COUPLE OF THINGS HAVE HAPPENED OVER THE YEAR.

ONE, WE DID NOT PLAN FOR AS MUCH OF AN INCREASE AS WE NEEDED TO IN TERMS OF JUST THE SALARY INCREASES FOR THE SROS, AND ALSO WE'VE JUST USED MORE SERVICES THIS YEAR.

THERE IS A RECURRING PIECE OF THAT ABOUT $268,000 IS CONSIDERED RECURRING THAT WAS RECOMMENDED TO YOU IN THE BUDGET RECOMMENDATIONS BEFORE.

THIS PIECE IS JUST TO GET US THROUGH THE END OF THIS YEAR.

DO YOU GUYS HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE BUDGET AMENDMENTS?

[02:30:08]

IF NOT, I'LL LOOK FOR A MOTION.

>> MOVE TO APPROVE THE BUDGET TRANSFERS FOR THE GENERAL FUND AS PRESENTED.

[3.R. Consider and act on budget transfers and amendments for the 2020-2021 budget]

>> I SECOND.

>> MOTION BY MR. CRASEY AND SECOND BY MISS.

GILLESPIE. ALL IN FAVOR?

>> I.

>> MOTION PASSES SIX, ZERO.

WE'LL MOVE ON TO ITEM S. CONSIDER AN ACT ON A RESOLUTION REGARDING SO3 AND POLICIES CB LOCAL, MRS. SMITH.

ANOTHER NEW REQUIREMENT THAT CAME OUT OF THIS STIMULUS GRANTS IS THAT WE NEED TO BRING TO THE BOARD OUR PLAN TO APPLY FOR FEDERAL GRANTS, NOT JUST THE SO3 GRANT.

THIS IS THE FIRST ONE IN LINE, BUT ALL FEDERAL GRANTS GOING FORWARD THAT WE PLAN TO APPLY FOR.

WHAT THIS RESOLUTION DOES IS IT ESSENTIALLY SAYS THAT WE ARE GOING TO GOING FORWARD ANY FEDERAL GRANT THAT WE APPLY FOR.

TITLE 1, CARL PERKINS, IDEA, ETC, OR ANOTHER ROUND OF STIMULUS IF THERE IS ONE, WE WILL BRING A COPY OF THAT APPLICATION TO YOU AS AN INFORMATION ITEM AT A PUBLIC BOARD MEETING AND THEN YOU GIVE THE SUPERINTENDENT THE AUTHORITY TO SUBMIT THAT APPLICATION TO TEA ON OUR BEHALF.

THIS WILL BE ADOPTED INTO POLICY CB LOCAL AFTER THIS RESOLUTION.

>> MY ONLY QUESTION IS DOES MRS. ARSHIMBO NEED TO READ THIS RESOLUTION JUST AS A RITE OF PASSAGE?

>> I THINK SHE SHOULD HAVE TO.

>> HALF A PAGE THAT ONE DOES NOT COUNT.

>> IT'S AN EASY ONE. I MEAN, AS FAR AS INITIATIONS GO.

>> I DID NOT WRITE THIS ONE, SO THAT'S WHY IT'S ONLY HALF A PAGE.

>> ALL RIGHT. I'LL MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE THE RESOLUTION AS PRESENTED.

>> MOTION MADE BY MR. CRASEY, SECOND BY MISS.

GILLESPIE. ALL IN FAVOR?

>> I.

>> MOTION PASSES SIX, ZERO.

I'LL READ IT IN A DRAMATIC FASHION DURING THE NEXT MEETING.

WE'RE GOING TO MOVE TO ITEM T.

>> YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHERE IT IS NOW, DON'T YOU.

>> I DO, EXACTLY. DR. PHIL.

>> THIS IS THE SAME, Y'ALL ACTUALLY APPROVE THIS SALE LAST MONTH, BUT THERE'S SOME EXTRA DETAILS IN HERE NOW AND THE ABILITY FOR ME TO GO SIGN ON THE DISTRICT'S BEHALF AT CLOSING.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE APPROVING THIS MONTH.

WE WILL MOVE TO ITEM U, CONSIDER AN ACT ON APPROVAL OF THE FISCAL YEAR 2022 INTERNAL AUDIT PLANS, IT'S WRONG IN THERE. MR. GRUBER.

>> RIGHT THERE.

CFC LOCAL REQUIRES THAT AN ANNUAL RISK ASSESSMENT BE CONDUCTED UTILIZING A RISK-BASED METHODOLOGY.

WE DO THAT TO IDENTIFY AUDITABLE AREAS OF THE DISTRICT.

IT ALSO REQUIRES THAT THE ANNUAL INTERNAL AUDIT PLAN BE DEVELOPED BASED ON THE RESULTS OF THAT RISK ASSESSMENT.

THE NEXT SLIDE HERE, JUST WANT TO SHOW AGAIN HOW WE GET FROM THE STARTING POINT TO WHERE WE ARE NOW.

ONE ITEM THERE I GUESS THE FOURTH BULLET OVER, THE AUDIT COMMITTEE MET IN MAY AND WE DISCUSSED THE DETAILS OF WHICH YOU ALSO HAVE IN YOUR MATERIALS TONIGHT OF THE PROPOSED FISCAL YEAR '22 AUDIT PLAN, AS A RESULT OF THAT MEETING THERE WERE NO ISSUES WITH THAT AND WITH THAT REQUEST, APPROVAL OF THE FISCAL YEAR '22 AUDIT PLAN.

>> MOTION MADE BY MR. CLASEY, SECOND BY MR. DAVIS. ALL IN FAVOR?

INSTRUCTIONAL SUPPORT TEAM REPORTS CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION, DR. CUNNINGHAM.

>> THANK YOU. I HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS THIS YEAR TO BRAG ON OUR AMAZING TEACHERS, OUR PEER PROFESSIONALS, LEADERS, AND THOSE WHO SUPPORT OUR EDUCATORS, ESPECIALLY IN RESPONSE TO ONE CRISIS AFTER ANOTHER OVER THE PAST 16 MONTHS, WE ARE CERTAINLY BLESSED TO HAVE A DISTRICT FULL OF EDUCATORS FOCUSED ON KNOWING THE NAME AND NEED OF OUR STUDENTS, ACADEMICALLY AND NON ACADEMICALLY.

AS WE REFLECT ON OUR DISTRICT, WE REMAIN AS PROUD AS I EVER HAVE BEEN TO WORK WITH THIS PHENOMENAL TEAM.

FROM OUR BOARD REPORT, I'D LIKE TO SPEND JUST A FEW MINUTES TO TELL YOU WHAT ARE THESE PHENOMENAL EDUCATORS ARE WORKING ON IN PREPARATION FOR THE '21, '22 SCHOOL YEAR.

IN ADDITION TO THE MULTIPLE AVENUES AVAILABLE THROUGH OUR PROFESSIONAL LEARNING DEPARTMENT FOR PERSONALIZED LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES, WE HAVE TEAMS OF TEACHERS AND COORDINATORS WORKING ON ADJUSTING OUR CURRICULUM SUPPORT DOCUMENTS TO MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR STUDENTS BASED ON A PLETHORA OF ACADEMIC DATA WE HAVE AVAILABLE.

WE HAVE TEAMS WORKING ON PROFESSIONAL LEARNING FOCUSED ON DESIGN OF INSTRUCTION BASED ON THE STANDARDS AND OUR BALANCED ASSESSMENT FOCUS.

WE HAVE TEAMS COLLABORATING ON SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL LEARNING AND

[3.W. Consider and act on possible payment of legal fees for the defense of employee in complaint filed by a student's parent with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation regarding actions taken by the employee within the scope of her employment with Frisco ISD.]

INCLUDING THOSE ASPECTS IN OUR STRUCTURAL DESIGN AND IN OUR CURRICULUM SUPPORT DOCUMENTS.

WE HAVE MULTIPLE TEAMS COLLABORATING AND PROVIDING SUPPORT TO EDUCATORS TO CONTINUE TO MEET THE NAMED NEED OF OUR STUDENTS.

WE'VE GOT A LOT OF WORK GOING ON, A LOT OF PEOPLE WORKING LOTS OF HOURS EVEN DURING THE SUMMER.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU KNOW THAT WE ARE WORKING HARD TO MAKE SURE THE '21, '22 SCHOOL YEARS IS THE BEST WE'VE HAD.

I'D LIKE TO THANK THE BOARD FOR THEIR ADVOCACY AND SUPPORT IN OUR PROCESS. THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU. DR. CUNNINGHAM.

MOVE TO BUSINESS SERVICES REPORT, DR. FELCH.

>> I THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE YOU A LITTLE UPDATE ON THE VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS CENTER THAT WE'VE DISCUSSED FOR YEARS.

THIS ALL STARTED DURING BOND PLANNING THREE YEARS AGO RIGHT NOW, WHEN PETE HAZARD AND HIS GROUP RECOMMENDED TO THE BOND PLANNING COMMITTEE THAT WE LOOK AT A STUDENT-CENTERED PERFORMANCE HALL,

[Consent Agenda]

REALLY, AND OUR CITIZENS ON THE COMMITTEE REALLY LIKED THE IDEA, BUT THEY URGED US TO EXPLORE A PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP.

FROM THEIR CITIZENS' COMMITTEE PRESENTED HERE TO THE BOARD,

[02:40:02]

TO YOU GUYS AND THEN THE BOARD APPROVED.

THEN WE TOOK THE PROJECT TO THE COMMUNITY FOR VOTE FOR SCHOOL ISDS BOND FUNDS WERE REALLY THE BEGINNING OF THIS WHOLE CONVERSATION.

THE NIGHT THAT THE BOARD ACCEPTED THE BOND PLANNING COMMITTEE'S RECOMMENDATION

[3.Y. Instructional Support Team Reports]

FOR THIS $43 MILLION TO GO TO A PERFORMING ARTS CENTER WAS WHAT GOT THE BALL ROLLING WITH THIS DEAL.

RIGHT NOW, WE MET WITH THE CITY AND MR. HALL LAST WEEK.

OUR ATTORNEYS ARE CURRENTLY WORKING AND COLLABORATING TO DOCUMENT DETAILS FROM OUR MEETING LAST WEEK.

OUR HOPE IS BY THE END OF THIS WEEK TO GET YOU GUYS A CONTRACT FOR YOU TO LOOK AT AND THEN FOR US TO DISCUSS AND POTENTIALLY APPROVED NEXT WEEK ON JUNE 22 IN A SPECIAL BOARD MEETING.

I THOUGHT I WOULD HIGHLIGHT A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT ARE IN THE CONTRACT FOR YOU TO LOOK AT TO BE ON YOUR RADAR.

FIRST IS THERE WOULD BE TWO HALLS INSIDE THE ONE FACILITY.

ONE WOULD BE A SMALLER HALL THAT THE CITY WOULD OWN.

THAT WOULD BE 250 TO 350 SIZE CAPACITY SEATS.

THE OTHER HALL WOULD BE A 1,250 TO 1,500 SEAT HALL THAT WOULD BE OWNED BY THE SCHOOL DISTRICT.

WHAT WE WOULD LOOK FOR IS ANY POTENTIAL FUNDRAISING THAT WOULD BE IN ADDITION TO THE FUNDS DEFINED BY THE CITY, THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, THE HALL GROUP TO BE IDENTIFIED BY JANUARY 1ST AND FRISCO ISD HAVE FINAL APPROVAL ON ANYTHING THAT WOULD CHANGE OUR SCOPE OF A HALL.

ANY OF THE THREE ENTITIES RIGHT NOW, I THINK WE'RE GOING TO ROUND IT UP OR ANY OF THE THREE ENTITIES COULD GET OUT OF THE DEAL BEFORE JANUARY 1ST AS THE PLANNING GOES ON.

YOU CAN LOOK FOR SOMETHING FROM ME BY THE END OF THE WEEK THIS WEEK.

BUT THOSE ARE SOME OF THE POINTS YOU CAN LOOK AT IN THERE.

I'LL SEND YOU GUYS THIS IN WRITING ALSO.

THEN NEXT WEEK POTENTIALLY TO APPROVE AND DISCUSS IT AT LENGTH.

>> THANK YOU FOR THE UPDATE.

SUCH AN EXCITING PROJECT.

WE ARE GOING TO MOVE TO FINANCE REPORT.

MISS SMITH. IF YOU CAN JUST SAY DITTO OR

>> YOU HEARD MY REPORT WHEN BRIAN

>> ALL RIGHT. LEADERSHIP REPORT, MR. MCCLENDON.

>> ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU. I JUST WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT REAL QUICK FOR YOU ALL.

WE HAD OUR LEADERSHIP SUMMIT 2021, FIRST-EVER LAST WEEK.

SOME OF YOU ALL WERE THERE TO WATCH THE FESTIVITIES AND ENJOY LUNCH WITH US AND WE THANK YOU FOR BEING THERE.

THIS WAS A TIME, YOU KNOW, DAY ONE WAS FOR THE PRINCIPALS AND DIRECTORS AND DAY TWO WAS WITH THE HILL ADMIN TEAM.

IT'S THE FIRST TIME WE'VE BEEN TOGETHER FACE TO FACE IN A LONG TIME IN A ROOM TOGETHER, CELEBRATING A VERY TRYING YEAR, THE PRINCIPLES PATTING EACH OTHER ON THE BACK FOR A JOB WELL DONE THROUGH TEACHERS AND STUDENTS.

THEN NOT ONLY THAT, THE RESETTING AND GETTING A FOCUS AS WE MOVE FORWARD.

WE'LL TALK MORE ABOUT THE FRAMEWORK AS WE GET INTO NEXT YEAR AS WELL.

IT WAS REALLY FUN, KIND OF CAPSTONE TO THE END OF THIS YEAR.

THE PRINCIPLES, EVERYBODY SEEMED TO HAVE A GREAT TIME WHILE AT THE SAME TIME REALLY ENJOYING THE TIME TO WORK WITH THEIR TEAMS AND PLANNING FOR NEXT YEAR AS WELL.

GREAT JOB WITH A GOOD WAY TO END THE YEAR.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH.

COMMUNICATIONS REPORT MS. AKYUN.

>> GOOD EVENING. EARLIER, WHAT DAY ARE WE? YEAH. EARLIER THIS MONTH, I PUT SOME INFORMATION AT HOME-BASE ABOUT A PROJECT THAT FRISCO ISD AND THE FRISCO COUNCIL OF PTAS HAS BEEN WORKING ON.

FRISCO ISD AND THE FRISCO COUNCIL OF PTAS HAS FINALIZED AN MOU ON THE CREATION OF AND COLLABORATION ON A CLOTHES CLOSET FOR STUDENTS IN NEED.

THE NAME OF THE CLOTHES CLOSET IS GOING TO BE CALLED FRISCO THREADS, BENEFITING FRISCO ISD STUDENTS, OUR KIDDOS WITH THE ASPIRE PROGRAM ARE GOING TO BE WORKING WITH THE COUNCIL OF PTAS TO SUPPORT PULLING TOGETHER THE SHOP ESSENTIALLY.

DOING EVERYTHING THAT IT'S GOING TO TAKE TO MAKE SURE THAT IT'S ORGANIZED AND THE CLOTHES ARE SORTED AND JUST ALL THAT IT ENTAILS TO PUT IT TOGETHER BEFORE OUR KIDDOS COME INTO THE SHOP TO FILL THEIR BASKETS WITH THE THINGS THAT THEY NEED.

RIGHT NOW, IT'S PLANNED FOR THE SHOP TO BE AT OUR ACKER SPECIAL PROGRAMS CENTER.

WE'LL BE ABLE TO UTILIZE THEM IN THAT SPACE AND ALSO BE IN A CENTRAL LOCATION TO THE DISTRICT.

THE SHOP IS GOING TO BE OPENING IN FALL OF 2021, RIGHT AFTER HOPEFULLY THE START OF SCHOOL SO THAT ONCE TEACHERS, COUNSELORS, EXCUSE ME, AND CAMPUS ADMINISTRATORS WILL

[02:45:01]

HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET TO KNOW THEIR STUDENTS BEFORE THEY'RE ABLE TO REFER THE STUDENTS OVER TO THE SHOP.

OUTREACH IS POURING INTO THE COUNCIL OF PTAS ABOUT HOW PEOPLE CAN GET INVOLVED RIGHT NOW.

RIGHT NOW, THERE'S SOME STUFF THAT'S SITTING OVER AT ACKER, BUT I KNOW THAT MANY OF OUR COUNCIL MEMBERS HAVE BOXES AND BOXES GENTLY USED CLOTHING ITEMS SITTING IN THEIR GARAGES AT HOME.

SINCE WE WERE NOT ABLE TO GO THROUGH ON QUITE YET, BUT OUR COMMUNITY MEMBERS ARE ACTUALLY ABLE TO HELP RIGHT NOW PURCHASE NEW ITEMS. THE COUNCIL HAS PUT TOGETHER A WISH LIST ON AMAZON CALLED THE FRISCO THREADS WISH LIST.

THAT THEY CAN PURCHASE SIZES 3T THROUGH ADULT THREE XL, WHICH IS UNDERGARMENTS, UNDER SHIRTS, JUST KIND OF EVERYDAY ITEMS THAT STUDENTS WILL NEED.

JUST WANTED TO GIVE YOU GUYS MORE INFORMATION ON WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE AND HOW THE COMMUNITY CAN HELP GET INVOLVED AND HELP GET THAT READY TO GO FROM WHEN OUR STUDENTS COME BACK.

FOR THOSE, YOU NEED TO DO A LITTLE BIT OF SHOPPING.

YES. THAT'S IT. ANY QUESTIONS?

>> I THINK THAT'S AWESOME. WHAT A GREAT PROJECT.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.

>> PROJECT.

>> WE'LL MOVE NEXT TO THE HUMAN RESOURCES REPORT, DR. LINTON.

>> THANK YOU. AS YOU KNOW, THIS IS TIME OF YEAR WHERE WE'RE DOING LOTS OF HIRING, SO WE'VE GOT ORIENTATION GOING AND ON-BOARDING.

ONE OF THE THINGS WE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO IS TRY TO MAKE THE ON-BOARDING PROCESS A PERSONAL ONE WHILE HONORING PEOPLE'S TIME.

WE HAVE TO THANK OUR COMMUNICATIONS DEPARTMENT FOR WORKING WITH US TO PUT TOGETHER A VIDEO THAT I'D LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU THAT WE'RE CALLING THE EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE.

IT TRULY WAS A SUPER COLLABORATIVE EFFORT.

WE'VE GOT EMPLOYEES REPRESENTED FROM DIFFERENT DEPARTMENTS, FROM CAMPUSES, SO I JUST LIKE TO SHARE THAT WITH YOU.

>> WHILE WE HAVE NUMEROUS SCHOOLS AND THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS, EVERYONE HAS WORKED REALLY HARD TO ENSURE THAT IT'S A COMMUNITY AND THAT WE ALL LEARN AND GROW TOGETHER.

>> WHAT SETS FRISCO ISD APART FROM OTHER DISTRICTS, I WANT TO SAY IT'S THEIR MISSION AND THEIR BELIEFS ON GETTING TO KNOW EVERY KID BY THEIR NAME AND NEEDS, AND THEN CHALLENGING THEM, AND THEN HAVING THAT OPPORTUNITY AND THEN ENCOURAGING THEM AS WELL.

>> WE'VE GOT SOME REALLY INCREDIBLE STUDENTS, AND I LIKE WATCHING THEM SUCCEED AT THE THINGS THAT THEY'RE MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT.

WHETHER IT'S ATHLETICS OR FINE ARTS OR ACADEMICS OR SERVICE IN THE COMMUNITY.

THERE'S A LOT THAT YOU CAN FIND TO BECOME FANS OF OUR KIDS ABOUT. IT'S REALLY INCREDIBLE.

>> WE ALWAYS KNOW WE'RE PREACHING ABOUT, YOU KNOW, BEING FUTURE READY, BUT WE REALLY ARE.

I'VE WORKED FOR OTHER DISTRICTS AS WELL BEFORE I CAME AND WENT TO THE RIGHT ONE IN FRISCO.

WE HAVE THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY, WE HAVE THE LATEST ADVANCES IN EDUCATION.

I'M LIKE, IT FEELS GOOD TO BE PART OF THE FORERUNNERS.

>> WHAT DO I LOVE THE MOST?

>> WHENEVER I'VE NEEDED HELP THERE'S ALWAYS SOMEBODY THERE TO SUPPORT ME, AND ENCOURAGE ME, AND COME ALONGSIDE ME, OR POINT ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

IT'S JUST TO ME A VERY ENCOURAGING ATMOSPHERE.

>> I THINK THAT THEY HAVE AMAZING PEOPLE WORKING FOR THE DISTRICT.

I ALSO FEEL LIKE THE GOALS THAT THEY HAVE FOR THE KIDS, SET THEM APART AND IT'S ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT WORKING HERE.

>> I GREW UP IN THIS AREA AND SO IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR ME TO SERVE THE COMMUNITY HERE.

THEN LOOKING AT THE DISTRICTS AROUND THE AREA, THE ONE THING THAT I NOTICED ABOUT FRISCO ISD WAS ITS COMMITMENT TO GROWING YOUNG TEACHERS.

>> EVER SINCE I STARTED WORKING HERE, I REALIZED HOW MUCH I HAVE COME TO LOVE MY JOB.

I LOVE ALL MY STUDENTS, THE SCIENCE DEPARTMENT HERE AT LIBERTY IS SOME OF THE BEST TEACHERS I HAVE EVER MET.

WE WE'RE LIKE ONE BIG, HAPPY FAMILY.

>> I NOTICED RIGHT OFF THE BAT, HOW AMAZING THE PEOPLE, THE COMMUNITY, THE EDUCATION WAS FOR THEM.

BEING CLOSE TO HOME AND KNOWING THAT I WAS A PART OF THE SAME TEAM THAT WAS EDUCATING MY OWN CHILDREN, WAS SOMETHING THAT WAS EXTREMELY APPEALING TO ME.

>> SO FOR FIRST YEAR TEACHERS, BE PATIENT, TAKE IT DAY BY DAY.

>> ALWAYS REMEMBER WHAT COMPELLED YOU IN THE FIRST PLACE TO BE AN EDUCATOR AND KEEP THAT IN THE FRONT OF YOUR MIND AS YOU ARE WORKING ALONGSIDE YOUR STUDENTS, AND THE JUST AMAZING PEOPLE IN THIS DISTRICT.

>> CONNECT WITH YOUR PEERS, CONNECT WITH YOUR SUPERVISORS, ASK QUESTIONS.

IF THERE IS ANYTHING THAT YOU HAVE, YOU CAN ALWAYS CALL OUR HR DEPARTMENT, PAYROLL DEPARTMENT, TECHNOLOGY.

>> AS LONG AS YOU'RE SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE THAT HAVE THAT SAME PASSION THAT YOU DO AND THEN HELP LIFT YOU UP,

[02:50:02]

YOU ARE GOING TO BE GREAT.

>> THE TEAM THAT EXISTS HERE IS LOOKING TO SUPPORT YOU AND TO HELP YOU SUCCEED.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THOSE OPPORTUNITIES EVERY CHANCE YOU GET.

>> THERE WE GO THE EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE. THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WE'LL MOVE TO STUDENTS SERVICES REPORT, MRS. MILLER.

>> WELL, THAT'S A TOUGH ACT TO FOLLOW.

>> I KNOW.

>> I'M GOING TO TALK ABOUT TRUANCY.

>> I KNOW RIGHT.

>> BUT WE DIDN'T GIVE OUR REPORT LAST MONTH BECAUSE OF THE STORM AND ALL OF THAT.

AS OF APRIL 30TH, 356 STUDENTS HAD ATTENDED THE TRUANCY TRIBUNAL.

WE ASKED BRADEN WHO'S UP ON THE THIRD FLOOR TO PUT SOME DATA TOGETHER BECAUSE WE REALLY WANTED TO DIG INTO, DID STUDENTS EARN UNEXCUSED ABSENCES LESS FREQUENTLY AFTER ATTENDING A TRIBUNAL AND DID THEIR GRADES IMPROVE AS WELL? WE FOUND, AND I HAVE SOME REALLY PRETTY GRAPHS THAT I'M GOING TO SEND YOU GUYS THAT YOU CAN LOOK AT LATER, I'LL PUT THEM IN HOMEBASE.

AFTER ATTENDING A TRUANCY TRIBUNAL, THE RATE OF UNEXCUSED ABSENCES DROPPED SIGNIFICANTLY.

WITH ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS DROPPED 11 PERCENT, MIDDLE-SCHOOL DROPPED TO 28 PERCENT AND HIGH-SCHOOL DROPPED TO 26 PERCENT.

THE NEXT QUESTION WAS, HOW DID IT AFFECT THEIR GRADES? STUDENTS WHO ATTENDED A TRIBUNAL EARLY IN THE FIRST QUARTER, LIKE IN OCTOBER, SHOWED SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT ON THEIR QUARTER 2 GRADES.

WHILE THOSE WHO ATTENDED LATER, LIKE IN NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER, THEY SHOWED LESS IMPROVEMENT.

STUDENTS WHO DIDN'T ATTEND THE TRIBUNAL UNTIL JANUARY OR MARCH HAD LOWER GRADES IN QUARTER 2, BUT THEN SUDDENLY SHOWED DRASTIC INCREASES IN QUARTER 3.

THE PATTERNS SUGGEST THAT THE TRIBUNALS SERVED AS A TURNING POINT FOR STUDENTS, IN BOTH ATTENDANCE AND ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE, AND THAT'S WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR.

ADDITIONALLY, WE HAD 850 PLUS HEARINGS DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR.

SOME STUDENTS REQUIRED MORE THAN ONE STATUS HEARING, WE FILED TRUANCY ONLY ON 13 FAMILIES AND THAT'S IN COMPARISON TO 80 CASES THE PREVIOUS SCHOOL YEAR, 2019-2020.

THE AVERAGE NUMBER OF CLASSES PASSED BEFORE TRIBUNALS WOULD BE TWO AND AFTER TRIBUNALS FOUR-PLUS CLASSES BEING PASSED.

WE'RE FINDING THAT IT REALLY DOES WORK.

IN ADDITION TO JUST ATTENDANCE AND GRADES, WE'RE ABLE TO IDENTIFY NON-ACADEMIC ISSUES AND PROVIDE INTERVENTIONS FOR MENTAL HEALTH, SUBSTANCE ABUSE, FAMILY COUNSELING REFERRALS AND PARENTAL SUPPORT.

WE'RE VERY PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS THAT WE FOUND WITH THE TRUANCY TRIBUNALS, THEY APPEAR TO BE VERY EFFECTIVE IN REDUCING ABSENTEEISM AND CONTRIBUTING TO HIGHER ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE. THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH.

MOVE TO SUPERINTENDENT REPORT, DR. WALDRIP.

>> WELL FIRST OF ALL, CONGRATULATION TO YOU TWO I DIDN'T SAY THAT EARLY ON.

>> THANK YOU.

>> CONGRATULATIONS ON THE PRESIDENCY.

COUPLE OF THINGS.

REFERENCING WHAT COREY, A LITTLE BIT.

WE HAD A REALLY GREAT TWO DAYS WITH OUR LEADERSHIP AND WE STARTED THE JOURNEY ABOUT FOUR YEARS AGO, TALKING ABOUT HOW WE WANTED TO APPROACH LEARNING FOR OUR STUDENTS, WHAT WAS GOING TO PREPARE THEM FOR THEIR FUTURE AND WE STARTED CALLING IT FUTURE-READY LEARNING.

WHAT WAS THAT GOING TO LOOK LIKE? WHAT WAS IT GOING TO TAKE TO PREPARE OUR STUDENTS FOR WHATEVER IS NEXT FOR THEM.

MILITARY, COLLEGE, WORKFORCE, WHATEVER THAT MAY BE, WHATEVER THEY CHOSE FOR THEMSELVES.

WHAT COULD WE DO TO PREPARE THEM FOR THAT? WE STARTED WITH DEVELOPING A PROFILE OF A FUTURE READY LEARNER, AND THAT EVOLVED INTO A PROFILE OF WHAT KIND OF TEACHER WOULD WE NEED TO EDUCATE A FUTURE-READY LEARNER? THEN WHAT KIND OF LEADERS WOULD WE NEED TO LEAD OUR DISTRICT AND HELP LEAD OUR TEACHERS AND PROVIDE AN EDUCATION FOR A FUTURE READY LEARNER.

THOSE ARE FOUND ON OUR WEBSITE THOSE PROFILES, FOR A FUTURE READY LEADER, A FUTURE READY LEARNER, AND A FUTURE READY TEACHER.

THEN WE STARTED WORKING WITH THE SELECTED CENTER, AND WITH JOHN TANNER ON STRATEGIC CHANGE INITIATIVES FOR OUR DISTRICT AND A COMMUNITY-BASED ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEM.

ALL OF THIS INTERWOVEN IN THIS FRAMEWORK IS THIS FUTURE-READY ASPECT OF THINGS.

THAT WAS BASICALLY THE THEME OF EVERYTHING, WE WERE TRYING TO WORK WITH OUR LEADERSHIP ON AND MOVING FORWARD.

WHAT YOU WILL SEE AND WE'VE GOT A SERIES OF WORKSHOPS PLANNED FOR YOU ALL IN THE FALL.

ONE OR MORE OF THOSE WILL ADDRESS ASIDE

[02:55:02]

THE FUTURE READY LEARNING OF WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A FUTURE READY LEARNER, A FUTURE READY TEACHER, A FUTURE READY LEADER, AND HOW THAT'S WOVEN INTO THIS COMMUNITY BASED ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEM.

I'M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT WORK, AND I THINK WE'RE AT A POINT WHERE WE'RE AT A TIPPING POINT WITH THAT WORK, AND WE'RE ALL REALLY EXCITED ABOUT IT.

I THINK YOU'LL BE EXCITED ABOUT IT TOO, AND THROUGH THE COMMUNITY BASED ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEM, THERE WILL BE MECHANISMS IN THERE FOR US TO REPORT OUT ON A REGULAR BASIS.

VARIOUS THINGS ARE GOING ON WITHIN OUR DISTRICT AND YOU SEE HOW WE ARE PROGRESSING IN THESE VARIOUS AREAS, IN THE STRATEGIES AND THINGS THAT WE'RE USING.

YOU'LL BE ABLE TO QUESTION AND GET CLARIFICATION, AND IT WILL BE SOMETHING WE CAN DO ON A REGULAR BASIS, A LOT DIFFERENT THAN A TRADITIONAL STRATEGIC PLAN THING.

WE'RE ALL LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. I HOPE YOU ARE TOO.

>> WALTER ANY QUESTIONS?

>> IF YOU'LL BEAR WITH ME FOR A MOMENT, I WAS GOING TO ASK A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS AFTER WE GET DONE WITH PUBLIC COMMENT, BUT THAT ENDED ABRUPTLY.

DR. WALTER, I AM JUST JOTTING DOWN SOME NOTES OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS OF THOSE COMMENTERS THAT HAVE COME IN.

QUITE FRANKLY, I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN WITH SOME OF THEM.

I JUST DON'T THINK MANY OF THEM ARE APPLICABLE TO FASD AS A TOP-PERFORMING SCHOOL DISTRICT IN THE STATE OF TEXAS.

SOME OF THEM ARE JUST FLAT OUT WRONG IN MY OPINION, BUT THERE IS ONE IN PARTICULAR THAT I'VE HEARD COME BACK TO ME NOW THROUGH OTHER CHANNELS OF FOLKS THAT JUST DON'T HAVE KIDS IN THE DISTRICT AT ALL.

THAT ILA THING THAT WE KEEP HEARING OVER AND OVER AGAIN ABOUT, I THINK IS FILLED WITH MISINFORMATION.

I DON'T THINK THAT ANY OF THE THINGS THAT ARE GOING ON THERE, WHAT WERE BEING ACCUSED OF.

BUT OBVIOUSLY, IF YOU HAVE KIDS IN MIDDLE SCHOOL AND YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT IT, WE WANT THEM TO GO AND TALK TO THEIR TEACHER.

WE WANT THEM TO TALK TO THE PRINCIPAL ABOUT IT.

BUT MAYBE IF WE HAVEN'T ALREADY, WE'VE REACHED A POINT WHERE WE NEED TO HAVE SOMETHING FOR COMMUNITY MEMBERS WHO ARE HEARING THIS, HER HAND.

>> SURE.

>> THEN THE ABSENCE OF ANY INFORMATION, MAYBE BELIEVING THEM AS INFORMATION.

>> SURE. FIRST OF ALL, ILA OR INTEGRATED LANGUAGE ARTS IS NOTHING NEW.

WE'VE BEEN DOING IT FOR 20 YEARS AT A MINIMUM.

IT WASN'T AN ORIGINAL IDEA THEN WE STARTED USING IT.

WE'VE HAD ADVANCED PROGRAMS AND ON LEVEL PROGRAMS AND PRE-AP.

WHAT I'M GOING TO DO IS I'M GOING TO HAVE DR. CUNNINGHAM GO INTO THAT AND GIVE AN OVERVIEW AND MAYBE A BROADER PERSPECTIVE OF WHAT ALL THAT IS.

WEST, IF YOU WOULD, EXPLAIN THE BACKGROUND AND HOW WE GOT TO WHERE WE ARE.

I HEARD SOMEONE DENIED SPEAK FROM THE PODIUM ABOUT DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION THEY DID NOT UNDERSTAND DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION.

PERHAPS YOU CAN SET THAT PIECE STRAIGHT AS WELL BECAUSE I HATE FOR PEOPLE TO WATCH THESE VIDEOS AND LISTEN TO THAT THING AT THE PODIUM AND GET THE WRONG IMPRESSION OF WHAT THESE PROGRAMS ARE AND WHAT WE INTEND WITH THEM. WEST, IF YOU WOULD.

>> SURE. ABSOLUTELY. I DO APPRECIATE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE YOU WITH SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT THIS PILOT PROGRAM FOR OUR INTEGRATED LANGUAGE ARTS CLASSES OR ILA CLASSES THAT ARE IN ALL SCHOOLS.

TO START WITH WHAT WALTER SAID, WE'VE OPERATED WITH ILA CLASSES, WHICH INTEGRATES READING AND WRITING TO A SINGLE CLASS FOR MIDDLE SCHOOLS FOR QUITE A FEW YEARS.

ALMOST OVER THREE YEARS AGO, DISTRICT COMMITTEE BEGAN REVIEWING OUR ADVANCED ACADEMICS PROGRAMMING AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL LEVEL, IN ANTICIPATION OF THE DISTRICT BEING REQUIRED TO RETIRE THE TERM PRE-AP IN THIS UPCOMING 21/22 SCHOOL YEAR.

THIS COMMITTEE CONSISTED OF REPRESENTATIVES FROM CURRICULUM INSTRUCTION, LEADERSHIP, CAMPUS PRINCIPALS, MIDDLE SCHOOL PRINCIPALS, TEACHERS, INSTRUCTIONAL COACHES, AND SIMILAR SUPPORT PERSONNEL ACROSS FISCAL ISD.

AS PART OF THAT REVIEW, ADDITIONAL IDEAS WERE BROUGHT FORWARD ON HOW FRISCO ISD CAN IMPROVE THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR ALL STUDENTS.

THE COMMITTEE WAS VERY INTERESTED IN PURSUING OPPORTUNITIES TO CONTINUE TO ENSURE THAT ALL STUDENTS ARE BEING AFFORDED ACCESS TO A WORLD-CLASS RIGOROUS LEARNING EXPERIENCES.

AFTER MUCH RESEARCH AND DISCUSSION, IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THIS INSTRUCTION CHANGE OF HAVING ONE LEVEL OF ILA, A SIMILAR STRUCTURE TO OUR SOCIAL STUDIES CLASSES AT OUR MIDDLE SCHOOL, WOULD TAKE PLACE VIA PHASED IN APPROACH.

PLEASE KNOW THAT A GOAL FOR THIS IS FOR ALL STUDENTS TO HAVE CHALLENGING AND DEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE LEARNING EXPERIENCES.

THIS PILOT IS FOCUSED ONLY ON ILA AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL LEVEL, AND IT'S DESIGNED TO PROVIDE MORE STUDENTS ACCESS TO INCREASED RIGOR AND ADVANCED INSTRUCTION.

OUR EDUCATORS WHO WILL INCORPORATE A HIGH LEVEL OF RIGOR TO PREPARE LEARNERS FOR ADVANCED CLASSES AND OTHER SUBJECT AREAS,

[03:00:02]

AND IN HIGH SCHOOL, SUCH AS ADVANCED COURSES, AP COURSES, IB COURSES, OR DUAL CREDIT COURSES.

WE UNDERSTAND THAT THE SUCCESS OF THIS APPROACH IS MELTED AND DIFFERENTIATION, RECOGNIZING STUDENT NEEDS AND RESPONDING WITH THE APPROPRIATE LEVEL OF SUPPORT WITH ACCELERATION OR INTERVENTION AND SOMETIMES THAT CHANGES.

TO THIS END, WE HAVE CREATED TRAINING THAT WILL FOCUS SPECIFICALLY ON HOW TO BEST DIFFERENTIATE FOR ALL STUDENTS AND ENSURE THAT STUDENTS OF ALL ABILITIES, INCLUDING THOSE WHO ARE MORE ADVANCED, ARE CHALLENGED APPROPRIATELY.

OUR TRAINED EDUCATORS WILL UTILIZE A VARIETY OF INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGIES IN ORDER TO DIFFERENTIATE FOR ALL LEARNERS WHILE ENCOURAGING CRITICAL READING, WRITTEN COMMUNICATION, AND PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS. IT'S JUST TO NAME A FEW.

FRISCO ISD BELIEVES THAT EVERY STUDENT SHOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ACHIEVE THEIR HIGHEST POTENTIAL.

WE'RE GOING TO MEET THE NEEDS OF ALL STUDENTS IN THESE CLASSES AT THEIR PERSONAL READINESS LEVEL.

PLEASE KNOW THAT WE HAVE THIS MODEL AND SOCIAL STUDIES, AND THAT HAS LED TO THE HIGHEST ENROLLMENT FOR ANY ENTRY LEVEL API SUBJECT ACROSS FRISCO ISD.

WE ACKNOWLEDGED THAT THERE ARE CONCERNS AND I HOPE THAT SOME OF THIS INFORMATION HAS HELPED.

THROUGHOUT THIS PILOT, WE WILL BE MONITORING OUR EDUCATORS AND OUR STUDENTS TO ENSURE THAT THEY HAVE ALL THE SUPPORT THEY NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL.

BEFORE I CLOSE, I'D LIKE TO RESPOND TO A FEW ADDITIONAL CONCERNS THAT HAD BEEN RAISED THAT I'VE SEEN.

STUDENTS RECEIVING GT SERVICES WILL CONTINUE TO RECEIVE GT SERVICES AND THEIR GT ILA CLASSES.

THAT'S A LOT OF ACRONYMS IN ONE SENTENCE.

THEY WILL NOT BE IMPACTED BY THIS PILOT.

WE HAVE NO PLANS TO DECREASE OUR API OFFERINGS AND FISCAL IST.

WE BELIEVE THIS PILOT ACTUALLY HELPS TO PREPARE MORE STUDENTS FOR ADVANCED COURSES AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL.

SPECIALIZED TRAINING AND SUPPORT WILL BE PROVIDED FOR OUR TEACHERS, AND THIS WILL CONTINUE ON THROUGH THIS YEAR, WHO WILL BE TEACHING THESE CLASSES.

FINALLY, THE EQUITY AND INCLUSION MENTIONED IN SEVERAL COMMENTS IS IN RELATION TO ACADEMIC EQUITY AND INCLUSION, AS WE STRIVE TO MEET THE NAME IN NEED OF EACH OF OUR STUDENTS IN THE FIRST GO, I STAY.

PLAINLY STATED, THIS EQUITY REFERS TO PROVIDING EACH OF OUR STUDENTS WITH THE SUPPORT THEY NEED TO ACHIEVE THEIR FULLEST POTENTIAL.

THAT'S THE INFORMATION I HAVE TO SHARE THIS EVENING.

>> DR. CAN YOU- WE'VE ALL SEEN THAT AND I REALLY DO APPRECIATE YOU SHARING THAT WITH THE COMMUNITY TONIGHT.

I THINK THE PART THAT I'D LIKE TO UNDERSCORE, AND THIS BOARD KNOWS IT, AND THIS ADMINISTRATIVE TEAM KNOWS IT.

OVER THE YEARS THAT I'VE SAT UP HERE, WE HAVE DONE NOTHING BUT EXPAND STUDENT OPPORTUNITY THROUGH ADDED CURRICULUM ACROSS THE BOARD, WHETHER IT'S A SPECIAL INTEREST THAT OUR STUDENTS HAVE, OR WHETHER IT IS INTERVENTIONS THAT ARE NEEDED, WHETHER IT'S ADVANCED ACADEMICS, AND THERE IS NO REASON THAT THE COMMUNITY SHOULD BELIEVE THAT WE'RE GOING TO GO AND TURN AROUND 180 DEGREES.

I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYBODY UNDERSTOOD THAT AND PUT TO BED THE MISINFORMATION OUT THERE ON THIS PARTICULAR PILOT PROGRAM. THANK YOU.

>> YES, MA'AM.

>> I JUST DIDN'T KNOW IF YOU HAD SOMETHING TO SAY.

I HAVE ONE MORE

>> I DON'T KNOW ABOUT PUTTING IT TO BED, BUT AT LEAST IT'S OUT THERE.

>> YEAH. I THINK IT'S GOOD.

>> THAT'S A GOOD THING.

>> I THINK IT'S GOOD THAT IT'S OUT THERE. ALONG THE CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION LINE, THERE'S BEEN SOME CONCERN RAISED ABOUT OUR ABSTINENCE EDUCATION PROGRAM IN THE DISTRICT.

I WOULD LOVE IF DR. WALDROP OR DR. CUNNINGHAM IF YOU ALL COULD GIVE AN OVERVIEW OF OUR ABSTINENCE EDUCATION PROGRAM, WHAT STUDENTS TAKE IT, HAVE THEY OPT-IN OR OPT-OUT.

JUST IF SOME HIGH LEVEL OVERVIEW BECAUSE I THINK THERE'S A LOT OF MISINFORMATION OUT THERE ABOUT THAT AS WELL AND I WOULD LOVE FOR US TO, I'M NOT GOING TO SAY PUT THIS TO BED, BECAUSE THAT SEEMS INAPPROPRIATE WITH THIS TOPIC.

BUT I THINK IT'S GOOD FOR US TO TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT THIS PROGRAM ACTUALLY IS FOR OUR STUDENTS.

>> WES, I KNOW YOU DEALT WITH THIS QUITE A BIT THIS YEAR AS WE RENEWED SOME OF THOSE AGREEMENTS TO DELIVER THIS PROGRAM.

I KNOW IT HAS GONE FROM AN OPT-OUT TO AN OPT-IN MODEL, BUT WHY DON'T YOU EXPLAIN A LITTLE BIT ABOUT OUR ABSTINENCE PROGRAM AND HOW WE APPROACH IT, AND HOW WE WILL APPROACH IT MOVING FORWARD.

I ALSO WANT TO STRESS THAT IT HAS ALWAYS IN THIS DISTRICT BEEN A PARENT'S DECISION WHETHER OR NOT THEIR CHILD WAS INVOLVED IN THAT KIND OF EDUCATION, THEY COULD ALWAYS OPT-OUT OF ABSTINENCE-BASED EDUCATION SO IF YOU WOULD GO IN A LITTLE BIT MORE DETAIL, I'M SURE YOU CAN FILL IN SOME BLANKS THAT I LEFT OUT, BUT GO AHEAD.

>> NO, SIR. YOU HANDLED IT GREAT.

WE DO HAVE AN OPT-IN PROGRAM NEXT YEAR. THAT'S WHERE IT STARTS.

IT'S BEEN OPT OUT FOR MANY YEARS AT OUR MIDDLE SCHOOL LEVEL AND WE FOLLOW THE RECOMMENDATION OF OUR STUDENT HEALTH ADVISORY COUNCIL WHO THIS YEAR HAS SPENT AN AWFUL LOT OF TIME LOOKING AT SEVERAL DIFFERENT PROGRAMS AND HAVE AGREED TO FOR THIS NEXT YEAR CONTINUE THE AIM FOR SUCCESS PROGRAM THAT WE PARTNER WITH.

[03:05:04]

THAT IS AN ABSTINENCE-BASED PROGRAM.

THEY ARE FOLKS FROM A THIRD PARTY TO COME OUT AND PRESENT TO OUR STUDENTS SO THAT THERE'S NOT AN EMBARRASSMENT TALKING ABOUT, ASKING QUESTIONS OR HAVING THESE CONVERSATIONS WITH THEIR TEACHERS.

IT'S BASED, AGAIN, SPECIFICALLY ON ABSTINENCE.

PARENTS HAVE ALWAYS HAD THE ABILITY TO OPT-OUT, AND WE'VE ALWAYS HAD THE ABILITY FOR PARENTS TO VIEW THE MATERIALS.

WE HAVE A VIEWING EVENING, USUALLY SEVERAL WEEKS AHEAD OF THE CLASSROOM PRESENTATIONS AND PARENTS CAN COME IN AND TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT'S BEING PRESENTED AND ASK QUESTIONS.

THEY CAN OPT-OUT AND THEY'RE GIVEN AN ASSIGNMENT TO COVER THE STANDARDS OF WHICH STUDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR OR THEY GO THROUGH THE PROGRAM.

WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT SOME DIFFERENT PUBLIC COMMENT AND STUDENT COMMENT AND TO EDUCATOR COMMENT AND HAVE PARTNERED WITH ANCIENT SUCCESS AND THEY ARE MAKING SOME ADJUSTMENTS TO THEIR PRESENTATIONS FOR THIS NEXT YEAR.

WE'LL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THAT THIS YEAR AND THEN POSSIBLY CONTINUE TO LOOK THROUGH STUDENT HEALTH ADVISORY COUNCIL AT SOME POSSIBLE OPTIONS IN THE FUTURE.

BUT IT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THE STUDENT HEALTH ADVISORY COUNCIL IS MADE UP OF EDUCATORS AS WELL AS CITIZENS THAT PROVIDE THIS INPUT AND THEY ARE GIVEN A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF AUTHORITY TO HELP US MAKE THESE TERMINATIONS.

>> I WANT TO BE CLEAR.

OPT-IN MEANS YOU GET TO DECIDE AS A PARENT

>> ABSOLUTELY.

>> IF YOU DON'T CHOOSE TO OPT-IN, THEY DON'T TAKE THE CLASS?

>> THEY HAVE ANOTHER STANDARD.

>> THANK YOU.

>> I JUST WANT TO BE CLEAR.

>> YES, SIR.

>> I JUST WANTED TO THANK WES FOR GETTING THE SHORT END OF THE STICK THIS EVENING WITH THE QUESTIONS AND ALSO EVERYBODY, THIS IS THE LAST BOARD MEETING OF THE FISCAL YEAR. WHAT A YEAR?

>> WHAT A YEAR.

>> THANK YOU, CHAD RUDY.

YOU HAD TO NAVIGATE A PRETTY TOUGH ROAD OR LAST COUPLE REALLY AND APPRECIATE YOUR LEADERSHIP IN THAT REGARD AND EVERYBODY HERE WHO'S IN THE ROOM THAT'S HELPED US GET THROUGH THIS YEAR LOOKING FORWARD TO THE FALL.

I AM AND THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A REAL GOOD ONE.

>> THANK OFFICERS TONIGHT, AGAIN, REALLY NEEDED YOU GUYS AND WE APPRECIATE YOUR BEING HERE.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THIS BOARD HAS BEEN THROUGH SOME STUFF THIS YEAR AS A TEAM AND I JUST WANT TO SAY FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, SERVING WITH YOU ALL IS A TRUE JOY AND WE COME TOGETHER AND WE DO WHAT I BELIEVE WE WOULD ALL AGREE IS BEST FOR OUR STUDENTS AND OUR STAFF AND OUR TEACHERS.

I UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE ALWAYS GOING TO HAVE COMMUNITY MEMBERS THAT DON'T AGREE WITH THE THINGS THAT WE DO AND THAT'S OKAY.

THOSE ARE IMPORTANT CONVERSATIONS FOR US TO HAVE SO THAT WE CAN GROW AND GET BETTER AND MAKE SURE THAT ALL VOICES ARE HEARD AND SO THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING HERE FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT DID NOT GET TO HAVE PUBLIC COMMENT THIS EVENING, WE INVITE YOU TO COME TO OUR NEXT MEETING OR TO E-MAIL US THESE CONVERSATIONS.

>>

>> WE PUSH THOSE PUBLIC COMMENTS TO THE NEXT MEETING.

WE WOULD LOVE TO INVITE YOU ALL.

>>

>> WE'RE NOT TAKING ANY MORE PUBLIC COMMENTS THIS EVENING, BUT AGAIN, PLEASE JOIN US FOR THE NEXT MEETING.

YOU'RE WELCOME TO DO THAT AT LEADERS@FRISCOISD.ORG AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING WITH ALL OF YOU NEXT MEETING.

I'LL LOOK FOR A MOTION FOR ADJOURNMENT.

>>

>> MOTION BY MR.

>> AYE.

>> IT PASSES AT 6-0. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
