COMMUNITY PARTNER PRESENTATION, MRS. MCCUNE. THANK YOU.

I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE ALLISON MILLER, DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY RELATIONS.

OK, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

PRESIDENT ARCHAMBAULT, SCHOOL BOARD, DR.

WALDRIP AND ISD, THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN FOR ALLOWING US TO RECOGNIZE PARTNERS IN EDUCATION HERE IN FRISCO ISD.

TONIGHT, WE'RE GOING TO RECOGNIZE TWO OWNER OPERATORS OF CHICK-FIL-A'S HERE IN OUR AREA.

THE CHICK-FIL-A LEADER ACADEMY IS A NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL LEADERSHIP PROGRAM ORGANIZED BY AN EDUCATOR AT THE SCHOOL AND SPONSORED BY A LOCAL CHICK-FIL-A RESTAURANT OPERATOR.

THE SEVEN MONTH PROGRAM FOCUSES ON MAKING AN IMPACT THROUGH ACTION AND TRAINING LEADERS WITH LOCAL COMMUNITIES WITHIN LOCAL COMMUNITIES.

CURRENTLY, HERITAGE HIGH SCHOOL AND REEDY HIGH SCHOOL ARE PARTNERED UP WITH TWO LOCAL CHICK-FIL-A OWNER OPERATORS TO MAKE THIS PROGRAM POSSIBLE FOR STUDENTS ON THEIR CAMPUS.

ADDITIONALLY, LATER THIS MONTH, LEBANON TRAIL HIGH SCHOOL IS ALSO BRINGING THIS PROGRAM TO THEIR CAMPUS THROUGH THE GENEROSITY OF A THIRD LOCAL CHICK-FIL-A OWNER OPERATOR JAY SCHUMACHER. AT THIS TIME, IF DR.

WALDRIP AND PRESIDENT ARCHAMBAULT COULD PLEASE COME TO THE STAGE, I'D LIKE TO CALL UP SHARON WHITE, FRISCO ISD COMMUNITY OUTREACH LIAISON.

AND IF DEIDRE RUSSELL OR AMANDA MILLER IS HERE, IF THEY WOULD COME UP AS WELL.

DEIDRE WRESTLE AT HERITAGE HIGH SCHOOL IS OVER THE COYOTE AMBASSADORS AND PALS PROGRAM.

THEIR PARTNER, MATT BRIDGES, OWNER OPERATOR OF THE EL DORADO AND RIDGE LOCATION, IS HERE WITH US. AND IF YOU'LL COME UP, MATT.

AND AMANDA MILLER AT REEDY HIGH SCHOOL IS OVER THERE PALS PROGRAM AS THEIR LEAD AND THEIR PARTNER IS DARYL MAYOR OR MEYER.

EXCUSE ME.

OH, YOU'RE HERE, YEAH AND DARYL? DARYL IS THE OWNER OPERATOR OF THE FRISCO LAKES 423 IN STONEBROOK LOCATION, AS WELL AS THE WIND SONG RANCH.

BUT BUT WE CARE RIGHT NOW ABOUT 423 AND STONEBROOK.

I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO MATT AND DARYL FOR ENRICHING THE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE OF STUDENTS AT THESE TWO CAMPUSES THROUGH THE CHICK-FIL-A LEADER ACADEMY.

YOU'RE MAKING A DIFFERENCE, AND WE WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT.

I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE A QUICK SECOND, WHICH I'M ABOUT TO PUT YOU ON THE SPOT DEIDRE FOR YOU TO EXPLAIN WHAT THE PALS PROGRAM IS AND THE IMPACT THAT CHICK-FIL-A LEADER ACADEMY HAS ON YOUR STUDENTS.

AND THEN YOU CAN GO INTO A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE ADDITIONAL PARTNERSHIPS THERE.

OK, SO CAL PROGRAM IS A NATIONWIDE MENTORING PROGRAM THAT I REALLY FELT AND SO THAT WAS A IT'S A COURSE THAT IS I DON'T THINK I NEED THIS, BUT I'M A HOLD IT JUST IN CASE.

IT'S A COURSE THAT IS OFFERED AT EVERY HIGH SCHOOL TO WHERE I ARE JUNIORS AND SENIORS TO THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS AND PARTNER WITH THEM AND AND WE ALSO GO TO THE MIDDLE SCHOOLS AND WE'LL MENTOR K THROUGH EIGHTH GRADE.

SO EVERY DAY MY STUDENTS RIGHT NOW WE GO OFF CAMPUS AND WE ARE MENTORING AT AND SO WE PARTNER WITH THEM.

AND THEN THAT'S WHERE MATT BRIDGES COMES ALONG, AND I CALL HIM AND SAY, HEY, I WANT TO DO THIS. AND HE WAS LIKE, SURE.

SO ONE OF THE PROJECTS WITH OUR AMBASSADORS IS THAT OUR COURTYARD, WHICH IS A GREAT COURTYARD, KIND OF LOOK LIKE A GRAVEYARD.

AND SO I CONTACTED HIM AND HE REACHED OUT TO THE PROSPER.

AND I MEAN, THE LOWES IN PROSPER, WHICH IS TIM LAWLESS, AND THEY WERE ABLE TO COME OVER

[00:10:01]

AND THEY GAVE US OVER FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS WORTH OF FLOWER, MULCH, ANYTHING I NEEDED TO REDO OUR COURTYARD TO MAKE SURE IT WAS READY FOR HOMECOMING.

PRIOR TO THAT LAST YEAR, WHAT I KNEW EVERYTHING WAS COVID WAS HAPPENING.

I KNEW OUR SENIOR CITIZENS NEEDED A LITTLE LOVE, WHICH YOU WERE ABLE TO SEE A PICTURE UP THERE. I CALLED MATT BRIDGES AND I SAID, HEY, I WOULD LOVE TO FEED OUR SENIOR HOMES AROUND. AND HE SAID, SURE, I GOT YOU.

SO HE GAVE ME OVER 70 BOXES WORTH OF FOOD AND WE WENT TO THE SENIOR HOMES AND WE FEED ALL OF OUR SENIOR CITIZENS RIGHT ON THE CORNER OF PRIOR TO THAT, I SAID, HEY, I WANT TO HAVE A CHRISTMAS PARTY FOR ALL THE KIDS THAT I MENTOR. HE SAID, SURE, I GOT YOU.

HE BRINGS OUT THE COW.

HE COMES AND TALKS WE ARE GIVING BACK AND EVERY KID OVER 40 KIDS THAT WE MENTORED WHEN I FIRST GOT TO HERITAGE WERE ABLE TO HAVE A CHRISTMAS PARTY, HAVE PICTURES WITH THE COW, HAVE FACE PAINTING, AND HE ACTUALLY SAT DOWN AND PLAYED WITH THE KIDS.

SO FOR ME, WHEN I REACHED OUT, MY BIGGEST THING IS ABOUT CREATING SERVANT LEADERS, AND THAT IS WHAT HE ALLOWS ME TO DO AND GIVE BACK TO OUR COMMUNITY.

AND SO I'M REALLY HAPPY THAT ANY TIME I CALL OR TEXT HIM EVEN NOW, I SAID, I NEED 60 SANDWICHES TO FEED OUR FOOTEALL BOYS FOR HELPING ME DIG UP THE COURTYARD.

NO PROBLEM. COME ON OVER.

I GOT YOU. AND SO I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU.

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO FRISCO FOR ALLOWING ME TO VENTURE OUT.

I DO WANT TO SAY FIRST, THANK YOU OVER TO MR. SOMETHING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY THAT I THINK IS REALLY IMPORTANT.

THAT'S CREATING SERVANT LEADERS WITH OUR HIGH SCHOOL KIDS AND GIVING BACK TO OUR YOUNG ONES. AND THAT'S WHAT HE REALLY POURS INTO ME AND ALLOWS ME TO DO.

ALL RIGHT.

OK, WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A QUICK PICTURE IF YOU GUYS WILL ALL HUDDLE UP.

GET IN THERE, DEIDRE.

AND DARYL AT HER 423 IN STONEBROOK LOCATION, THEY ARE DOING A COOKIES FOR COMMUNITY.

SO IF YOU GO BY THERE ON FRIDAY AND PURCHASE COOKIES STONEBROOK AND 423 CHICK-FIL-A, THE PROCEEDS WILL GO TO THE FRISCO EDUCATION FOUNDATION.

SO. LOVE IT.

NICE.

[5. Rezoning 2022-2023 Presentation]

WE NOW MOVE ON TO ITEM FIVE REZONING, 2022, 2023 PRESENTATION, DR.

FOUCHE. THANK YOU.

I'D LIKE TO INVITE KRIS POOL UP TO THE PODIUM.

KRIS IS WITH PASA.

THEY ARE OUR EXTERNAL DEMOGRAPHER.

SHE'S GOING TO GIVE US A BRIEF DEMOGRAPHIC PRESENTATION AND SHOW ZONES AS WELL.

WE'VE BEEN KRIS HAS BEEN WORKING ON THIS FOR ABOUT TWENTY TWO YEARS.

I THINK WHEN SHE WENT TO WORK FOR US, WE WERE TWENTY TWO YEARS AGO, ABOUT 5000 STUDENTS AND NOW WE'RE SIXTY FIVE THOUSAND STUDENTS, NOT EVEN CLOSE TO FASTEST GROWING DISTRICT IN THE STATE DURING THAT TIME.

SO THANK YOU, KRIS, AND I WILL TURN IT OVER TO YOU.

GOOD EVENING, DR. WALDRIP, PRESIDENT ARCHAMBAULT AND BOARD MEMBERS.

MY NAME IS KRIS POOL AND I'M WITH POPULATION SURVEY ANALYST.

AND LIKE YOU SAID, I'VE BEEN WORKING WITH FRISCO ISD SINCE 1999 DOING DEMOGRAPHICS, BUT IT'S MAINLY BEHIND THE SCENES, SO IT'S GOOD TO BE ABLE TO COME TALK TO YOU GUYS A LITTLE BIT TONIGHT. AND I'VE BEEN ASKED TO GIVE JUST A VERY BRIEF OVERVIEW OF DEMOGRAPHICS WHILE I'M HERE BEFORE WE MOVE ON TO THE ZONING.

SO FIRST, JUST A LITTLE BIT ABOUT OUR FIRM, IT BEGAN IN 1980, AND SINCE THAT TIME WE HAVE WORKED ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY WITH SCHOOL DISTRICTS PROJECTING STUDENT ENROLLMENT.

WE WORK ALL OVER THE STATE.

WE WORK BASICALLY IN A RING AROUND HOUSTON AND ALL OF THOSE HIGH GROWTH SORTS OF DISTRICTS. AND WE ALSO NOW WORK FOR HOUSTON ISD.

WE WORK IN AUSTIN OUTSIDE OF AUSTIN.

WE WORK AT LIBERTY HILL, LEANDER, DRIPPING SPRINGS, ET CETERA.

WE WORK SOME IN SAN ANTONIO.

I'M HEADED TO FRIENDSHIP, WHICH IS LUBBOCK NEXT WEEK.

AND THEN HERE IN DALLAS, WE'VE GOT A PROJECT WITH DALLAS ISD.

WE'VE WORKED WITH YOU GUYS FOR SO LONG.

LOVEJOY, SOME OF THESE OTHER SMALLER AREAS NORTHEAST, NORTHEASTERN TEXAS.

SO REALLY, WE SORT OF SPAN THE ENTIRE STATE.

MOST OF THE THE PEOPLE THAT CONTACT US ARE THE SORTS OF DISTRICTS THAT ARE GROWING.

THEY NEED HELP UNDERSTANDING WHERE TO PUT NEW SCHOOLS, WHEN TO OPEN THOSE NEW SCHOOLS, HOW TO DRAW THOSE ATTENDANCE ZONES AND TRY TO MAINTAIN AS MUCH STABILITY AS POSSIBLE.

WHEN WE STARTED IN 1999, WE WERE DRAWING THE ATTENDANCE ZONE FOR SHAWNEE TRAIL ELEMENTARY. AND SO IT'S BEEN EVERYTHING SINCE THEN.

WE BUILT OUR PROJECTIONS LARGELY ON NEW HOUSING.

WE GO IN, WE SPEND TIME ON THE GROUND ASSESSING UNDEVELOPED PARCELS OF LAND.

OTHER PEOPLE MAY LOOK AT PLOTS OR THEY MAY LOOK AT CONCEPT PLANS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, BUT THAT ONLY GETS YOU SO FAR.

[00:15:02]

THAT ONLY GETS YOU A FEW YEARS IN THE FUTURE.

AND WE KNOW THAT A DISTRICT LIKE YOU GUYS, IF YOU'RE GOING TO BUILD A NEW HIGH SCHOOL, YOU'RE LOOKING AT TWO YEARS OF CONSTRUCTION TIME.

YOU'VE GOT TO BACK UP AND DESIGN AND YOU'VE GOT TO BACK UP AND YOU DO THE SITE SELECTION, ET CETERA, ET CETERA, ET CETERA, PASS THE BOND AND A COUPLE OF YEARS OF CONCEPT PLANS AND SO FORTH ISN'T GOING TO GET YOU VERY FAR.

AND SO WE ACTUALLY GET IN THE DISTRICT AND CONTACT PEOPLE AND MAKE PROJECTIONS AND ASSESS, TRY TO ASSESS EVERY LARGE PARCEL THAT IS UNDEVELOPED FOR WHEN AND WHERE AND HOW THAT PARCEL MIGHT BUILD OUT.

WE ALSO LOOK AT THE CURRENT STUDENT POPULATION.

WE AGE THOSE KIDS FORWARD.

WE LOOK AT HOW THEY'RE MOVING THROUGH THE DISTRICT AND WHICH PORTIONS OF THE DISTRICT WHERE THEY MAY BE STAYING STABLE AND MOVING FORWARD, OR WHICH PORTIONS OF THE DISTRICT MAY BE GAINING A LOT OF KINDERGARTNERS BECAUSE WE'RE LOOKING AT NEW HOUSING, BUT IT'S ALSO VERY IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE EXISTING HOUSING BECAUSE AT THIS POINT, FRISCO ISD HAS A LOT MORE EXISTING HOUSING THAN YOU HAVE NEW HOUSING.

AND SO WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND ALL OF THOSE ASPECTS.

WE HAVE TO LOOK AT ECONOMIC DATA, OF COURSE.

AND THEN ONE OTHER IMPORTANT THING THAT WE DO IS WE MEASURE THE RATIOS OF STUDENTS PER HOUSEHOLD. EVERYBODY THINKS THERE'S TWO KIDS PER HOUSE, AND THAT'S NOT EXACTLY THE CASE.

DON'T GET INTO THAT A LITTLE BIT LATER.

SO WE ALWAYS START ANY ASSESSMENT OF A DISTRICT BY LOOKING AT HOW IT COMPARES WITH OTHERS IN THE REGION BECAUSE WE ULTIMATELY NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHY PARENTS WOULD CHOOSE THIS DISTRICT INSTEAD OF A DIFFERENT DISTRICT.

AND SO WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT FACTORS MAY BE PULL FACTORS INTO THE DISTRICT.

AND SO WE CAN LOOK AT A LOT OF DIFFERENT TEA DATA.

THIS IS SHOWING 2020 DATA.

THIS IS, OF COURSE, COVID AFFECTED DATA, BUT IT'S THE MOST RECENT PEIMS DATA THAT WE HAVE THAT'S AVAILABLE FOR THE ENTIRE STATE.

AND SO YOU CAN SEE FRISCO THERE WITH THE CIRCLE AROUND IT.

IT'S SITTING THERE IN DENTON AND COLLIN COUNTY, AND THE ENROLLMENT IN 2020 WAS JUST OVER SIXTY THREE THOUSAND STUDENTS.

WE MEASURE GROWTH IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT WAYS.

WE LOOK AT NET CHANGE AND WE LOOK AT PERCENT CHANGE AND WE LOOK AT OVER VARIOUS TIME PERIODS. I THINK BECAUSE COVID DID AFFECT ALL OF THE ENROLLMENTS IN THE STATE, PERHAPS RIGHT NOW, THE BEST WAY TO LOOK AT GROWTH IS TO LOOK IN THIS CASE AT A FIVE YEAR GROWTH PERIOD. AND SO THAT'S WHAT YOU'VE GOT HERE AND YOU'VE GOT ALL OF THE DISTRICTS IN THE REGION RANKED. THE THING THAT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND HERE IS HOW MASSIVE THE GROWTH HAS BEEN IN FRISCO.

SOME OF US REALLY, YOU KNOW, WE CAN LOOK BACK AT AND WE'RE HERE FOR THE YEARS THAT IT WAS GROWING AT 30 PERCENT PER YEAR.

AND SO WE CAN. AND IT'S EASY TO KIND OF THINK, WELL, THAT IS TAPERED OFF, BUT REALLY AND TRULY, WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT, IT HASN'T.

FRISCO GAINED THE SECOND MOST STUDENTS IN THE ENTIRE REGION, SECOND, BARELY ONLY TO PROSPER. AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHO WAS THIRD, YOU'RE MORE THAN DOUBLE THE THIRD.

AND I THINK THAT'S WHAT HELPS PUT THAT IN PERSPECTIVE.

JUST EXACTLY HOW MUCH GROWTH YOU'VE GOT GOING ON.

I MENTIONED THAT THE DATA FOR 2020 WAS AFFECTED BY COVID, AND SO THIS GROWTH THAT THE DISTRICT HAD IN FRISCO, YOU HAD SEVEN HUNDRED AND EIGHTY EIGHT STUDENTS GAINED AT THAT TIME, AND THAT WAS LOWER THAN WE HAD PROJECTED.

OF COURSE, WHEN WE DID OUR DATA IN THE FALL OF 2019 AND WE'RE PROJECTING FOR 2020, WE DID NOT FORESEE A PANDEMIC OCCURRING IN THE SPRING 2020.

AND SO EVERYONE HAD ENROLLMENT DATA THAT WAS MUCH LOWER THAN THEY HAD EXPECTED AND FRISCO WAS NO EXCEPTION.

WHEN WE LOOK AT THE 20 LARGEST DISTRICTS IN THE STATE, THOUGH, THAT GROWTH STILL TOPPED ALL OF THOSE DISTRICTS.

AND SO REALLY AND TRULY ONLY YOU ALL IN KATIE.

WE'VE ALSO ACTUALLY KATIE MAY BE THE ONLY DISTRICT I'VE WORKED FOR LONGER THAN FRISCO IS KATIE ISD. YOU ALL WERE THE ONLY OF ONLY DISTRICTS TO ACTUALLY GAIN STUDENTS OF THOSE 20 LARGEST DISTRICTS IN THE STATE.

EVERYBODY ELSE SAW A DECLINE.

SO THIS GRAPH JUST SHOWS THE UPWARD TREND IN STUDENT ENROLLMENT SINCE 2008, THE ENROLLMENT HAS CONTINUED TO INCREASE VERY STEADILY.

YOU WILL SEE THAT IT'S ALSO SHOWING THE PERCENTAGE OF CHANGE.

AND SO NATURALLY, AS THE DISTRICT HAS INCREASED IN OVERALL ENROLLMENT, THAT PERCENTAGE CHANGE HAS DECLINED ALONG THE WAY.

AND THEN YOU CAN ALSO SEE THAT IN 2020, YOU SEE A LITTLE FLATTENING OUT THERE AND AT ONE POINT THREE PERCENT CHANGE.

AND THEN FOR THIS FALL, IF WE'RE PROJECTING FORWARD TO WHAT WE WOULD EXPECT BY THE END OF OCTOBER, FOR PEIMS, IT'S CLOSER TO ABOUT FOUR PERCENT.

I WOULD BE REMISS IF I DIDN'T TOUCH JUST A LITTLE BIT ON COVID.

IT HAS MADE OUR JOB VERY, VERY DIFFICULT.

IT HAS MADE A LOT OF PEOPLE'S JOBS VERY, VERY DIFFICULT IN THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS.

OF COURSE, NONE OF US HAVE LIVED THROUGH A PANDEMIC LIKE THIS, AND SO WE HAVE TRIED TO SIT DOWN AND STUDY EVERYTHING THAT WE COULD GET OUR HANDS ON.

WE TRY TO COMPARE IT TO SOME OF THE THE HURRICANE DISASTERS THAT WE'VE SEEN COME THROUGH IN THE HOUSTON AREA. WHAT WAS THE RECOVERY LIKE AFTER THAT? HOW LONG DID IT TAKE PEOPLE TO GET BACK TO NORMAL IN THAT SITUATION? AND SO WE LOOKED AT THAT AND WE REALLY FELT LIKE WITH THE VACCINES HAD COME ON IN THINGS THE WAY WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THAT WE WOULD SEE MOST OF THE STUDENTS WHO DID NOT ENROLL IN THE DISTRICT LAST YEAR THAT WE WOULD SEE MOST OF THOSE COME BACK.

AND I THINK BY JULY THE FIRST, WE ALL FELT PRETTY GOOD ABOUT THAT.

AND THEN WE HAD SOME CHANGES HIT WITH THE PANDEMIC IN JULY AND AUGUST.

AND SO WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING IS LOOKING AT THE NUMBER OF HOMES THAT WERE OCCUPIED AND

[00:20:05]

THEN THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS WE WOULD HAVE EXPECTED FROM THOSE HOMES AND TRYING TO COMPARE THAT TO THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS WE ACTUALLY DID GET FROM THOSE HOMES.

AND SO IN SO DOING, WE FEEL LIKE THERE ARE STILL SOME STUDENTS THAT HAVE NOT RETURNED TO THE DISTRICT. AND SO WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING AT PROJECTIONS MOVING FORWARD, WE ARE SEEING SOME OF THAT. WE ARE PROJECTING SOME OF THOSE STUDENTS TO COME BACK IN 22 AND A FEW AND 23. AT THIS POINT, SOME OF THEM MAY STAY GONE.

THEY MAY STAY DOING OTHER THINGS, AT LEAST UNTIL SECONDARY SCHOOL.

I KNOW WHEN THE DATA CAME OUT THE PANDEMIC, IT LARGELY AFFECTED KINDERGARTEN AND FIRST GRADE, AND WE SAW ALMOST NO IMPACT WHATSOEVER AT THE HIGH SCHOOL GRADES.

AND SO, YOU KNOW, SOME OF THESE STUDENTS THAT ARE GONE, THEY MAY SHOW UP LATER ON IN THE FUTURE. I MENTIONED PULL FACTORS A MINUTE AGO, A LOT OF THE REASON THAT PEOPLE THAT PARENTS MAY CHOOSE FRISCO ISD IS SOME OF THESE PULL FACTORS.

LARGELY, IT'S QUALITY OF LIFE FACTORS.

AND SO IT'S A LITTLE HARD TO MEASURE QUALITY OF LIFE FACTORS.

BUT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE LOOK AT IS THE PERCENT OF ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS IN THE STATE.

AND WHEN WE COMPARE THAT TO THE LARGEST 20 DISTRICTS IN THE STATE BY FAR, FRISCO HAS THE LOWEST PERCENT OF ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS.

AND THE THING THAT'S VERY CURIOUS TO ME ABOUT THIS IS THAT THIS NUMBER HAS MAINTAINED ALMOST EXACTLY THE SAME PERCENTAGE SINCE WE BEGAN WORKING FOR THE DISTRICT.

IT'S BEEN VERY STABLE.

AND NORMALLY WHEN WE HAVE GROWTH COME IN, WE HAVE A GROWTH IN ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS ALSO, AND THAT THAT HAS NOT HAPPENED HERE IN FRISCO ISD.

AND THAT'S PROBABLY ONE OF THE REASONS THAT YOU'VE CONTINUED TO SEE THIS VERY LARGE GROWTH FIGURES. SO THIS IS A SLIDE THAT'S VERY INTERESTING TO ME THAT I WANTED JUST TO TALK ABOUT BRIEFLY.

IT'S EASY TO GET HUNG UP ON THE HOUSES THAT YOU SEE COME IN.

YOU CAN DRIVE DOWN THE STREET AND YOU SEE THE NEW HOUSES COMING UP OUT OF THE GROUND.

BUT LIKE I MENTIONED, WE ALSO HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE EXISTING HOMES BECAUSE YOU HAVE MORE EXISTING HOMES NOW THAN YOU HAVE NEW HOMES.

AND SO WHAT THIS IS IS IT'S A LOOK BACK SINCE WE'VE LOOKED SINCE WE WORKED FOR THE DISTRICT FOR ABOUT TWENTY TWO YEARS, WE'VE GOT OLD DATA FOR THE DISTRICT.

AND SO THIS IS 2021 AND THEN BACK FIVE YEARS BACK, FIVE YEARS, EXCUSE ME, BACK FIVE YEARS TO FIFTEEN YEARS.

AND IT'S LOOKING AT THE SIZE OF THE POPULATION IN EACH ONE OF THE GRADES AT THAT TIME.

SO IN 2006, THIS IS COLOR CODED FOR THE LARGEST IN RED AND THE SMALLEST COHORT IN BLUE.

SO AT THAT TIME, THE LARGEST GRADE LEVEL THAT YOU ALL HAD WAS IN KINDERGARTEN AND THE SMALLEST THAT YOU HAD WAS IN 12TH GRADE.

SO FIVE YEARS FORWARD, THE LARGEST WAS IN FIRST, SECOND GRADE AND FIVE YEARS FORWARD.

FROM THAT, IT WAS IN ABOUT SEVENTH GRADE.

AND SO THIS YEAR, THE LARGEST, THE LARGEST STUDENT POPULATION, THE LARGEST GRADE LEVEL THAT YOU ALL HAVE IS IN NINTH GRADE AND YOUR SMALLEST IS IN KINDERGARTEN.

AND SO I DON'T WANT YOU TO THINK THAT YOU'RE LOSING KIDS AT KINDERGARTEN, THAT'S NOT WHERE WE ARE. IF YOU LOOK AT THE KINDERGARTEN NUMBERS EACH CONSECUTIVE EACH CONSECUTIVE YEAR IS LARGER THAN THE ONE PREVIOUS TO IT, SO YOU'RE STILL GAINING.

BUT WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT HERE IS WE'RE COMPARING ACROSS THE DISTRICT TRYING TO GET A SNAPSHOT OF THE DISTRICT AND THE DISTRICT IS AGING TO SOME EXTENT, SUCH THAT AT THIS POINT, FOR THE MOST PART, YOUR KIDS, YOU HAVE A HEAVIER CONCENTRATION OF KIDS IN THE SECONDARY GRADES.

AND SO I THINK THAT'S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND.

JUST AS YOU'RE THINKING OF FRISCO, WE SEE THESE NEW HOMES COMING OUT.

WE THINK LITTLE KIDS, BUT THERE ARE SO MANY KIDS AT THIS POINT THAT ARE IN THE SECONDARY GRADES. SO WE'LL MOVE ON JUST BRIEFLY AND TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT HOUSING.

WE HAVE, YOU KNOW, A LARGE BINDER UPDATED STUDY THAT WE DO.

IT'S THREE HUNDRED AND SOMETHING PAGES EVERY YEAR.

AND SO WE HAVE THIS DATA REALLY IN TEDIOUS DETAIL IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN TAKING A LOOK AT IT. BUT THIS MAP IN THE NEXT MAP JUST SHOW WHERE WE'RE PROJECTING NEW HOMES TO COME OUT OF THE GROUND. AND YOU KNOW, IF YOU LOOK AT THIS, I JUST WANT TO CONCENTRATE ON THE COLORS AND WHERE YOU SEE THE REDS AND THE ORANGES AND ALL THIS IS LOOKING OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS. AND SO LARGELY, WE'RE LOOKING AT BRINKMANN, WE'RE LOOKING AT FIELDS AND WE'RE LOOKING AT THE GROVE AND THOSE ARE THE LARGE PARCELS OF LAND THAT ARE UNDEVELOPED.

AND SO WE'RE LOOKING AT IT FOR SINGLE FAMILY HOMES.

DURING THAT 10 YEAR TIME FRAME, ABOUT TWO THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED HOMES IN FIELDS, ABOUT THIRTEEN HUNDRED OR SO AND THE BRINKMANN PORTION THAT IS NOT LEXINGTON PARK, LEXINGTON PARK, WE MAY BE LOOKING AT NINETEEN HUNDRED ALL ON ITS OWN AND THE GROVE AT 1500 THERE, AND WE'VE GOT SOME INFILL, YOU KNOW, I DON'T WANT TO TO IGNORE THE REST OF THE DISTRICT.

BUT IN THIS SITUATION, I JUST WANTED TO HIT THE HOT SPOTS HERE AND LET YOU SEE WHAT'S LEFT AND WHERE IT'S COMING. BECAUSE I THINK WHEN YOU STOP AND THINK ABOUT FUTURE SCHOOLS AND WHERE THE DISTRICT IS HEADED, THAT WILL REALLY MAKE SENSE FOR YOU ALL.

SO THE SECOND MAP SHOWS THE EXPECTED MULTIFAMILY IN THE DISTRICT, AND AT THIS POINT, AS A DISTRICT BUILDS OUT, WE'RE PROJECTING THIRTEEN THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED AND FORTY THREE SINGLE FAMILY HOMES OVER THE 10 YEARS, BUT WE'RE PROJECTING TWENTY THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY ONE MULTIFAMILY UNITS IN THE NEXT 10 YEARS.

[00:25:01]

AND SO THAT'S NOT UNCOMMON AS DISTRICTS BEGIN TO TO GO AHEAD AND DEVELOP ON OUT BECAUSE MULTIFAMILY WILL COME IN AND IT WILL FILL IN IN A LOT OF SITUATIONS.

THEY'RE IN SIMILAR LOCATIONS IN FIELDS IN BRINKMANN AND THEN ALSO THERE IN THE SOUTH CENTRAL PORTION OF THE DISTRICT WHERE FRISCO STATION AT THE GATE AND WADE PARK.

KRIS, I THINK IT'S WORTH NOTING ON THAT PART THAT WE REALLY HAVE NO CONTROL THE SCHOOL DISTRICT OVER HOW LAND IS DEVELOPED, WE JUST CLEARLY REACT TO WHAT TYPE OF PRODUCTS GO ON THE LAND. THAT'S RIGHT.

AND THE THE CITIES HAVE REALLY CONTROLLED A LOT OF THAT, AND THEY'VE SET ASIDE LAND FOR VARIOUS TYPES OF DEVELOPMENT.

AND SO IT'S OCCASIONALLY IT CHANGES.

BUT FOR THE MOST PART, THAT'S IT'S SET TO BE MULTIFAMILY IN ALL OF THOSE AREAS.

SO I MENTIONED STUDENTS PER HOME AND SO WE CAN PROJECT HOMES, BUT THEN WE HAVE TO KNOW HOW MANY STUDENTS ARE GOING TO COME FROM THOSE HOMES.

AND IF I'D ASK YOU BEFORE, YOU PROBABLY WOULD HAVE SAID TWO PER HOME, AND THAT'S NOT REALLY WHAT IT IS. THAT'S THE ANSWER I GET ALL OVER THE STATE.

THAT'S THE ANSWER I GET FROM EVERYBODY FOR THE LAST TWO DECADES.

THAT'S WHAT EVERYBODY THINKS, BUT THAT DOESN'T ACCOUNT FOR EMPTY NESTERS.

IT DOESN'T ACCOUNT FOR KIDS IN PRIVATE SCHOOL.

IT DOESN'T ACCOUNT FOR KIDS WHERE THEY LIVED WITH ONE PARENT, BUT THERE'S A HOME OCCUPIED BY ANOTHER PARENT.

AND SO IN REALITY, THE RATIO OF STUDENTS PER HOME FOR SINGLE FAMILY UNITS IS A 0.78 DISTRICT WIDE, AND FOR MULTIFAMILY UNITS, IT'S A 0.26.

NOW THAT VARIES WIDELY.

RIGHT NOW, FOR SINGLE FAMILY, WE HAVE IT MEASURED FROM 0.02 ON ONE END OF THE SCALE TO 1 .64 STUDENTS PER HOME.

IN SINGLE FAMILY AND IN MULTIFAMILY, IT VARIES FROM ZERO TO 0.98.

IN OTHER WORDS, THERE'S ALMOST ONE CHILD PER HOME IN THOSE MULTIFAMILY UNITS.

THAT'S NOT VERY MANY OF THEM.

CLEARLY, IF THE AVERAGE IS 0.26, BUT WE HAVE TO MEASURE THOSE AND TRY TO UNDERSTAND AS WE'RE PROJECTING NEW HOMES, WE HAVE TO BE RIGHT ABOUT WHERE THEY'RE GOING TO BE, WHEN THEY'RE GOING TO BE, HOW QUICKLY EACH YEAR THEY'RE GOING TO BUILD AND THEN ALSO HOW MANY KIDS ARE GOING TO BE IN EACH ONE OF THOSE.

AND THEN BRIEFLY, BEFORE WE MOVE ON TO THE ATTENDANT ZONE PLANNING, I JUST WANTED TO HIT A LITTLE BIT ON THE MODERATE SCENARIO OF GROWTH.

WE PREPARE A LOW, A MODERATE AND HIGH.

AND SO ANY OF THE DATA THAT WE USE IN THE BINDER FOR ANY OF THE ENROLLMENT, THE ATTENDANCE ZONE PLANNING THAT IS ALL BASED ON THE MODERATE SCENARIO OF GROWTH.

AND SO WE CAN SEE THAT WE'D BE LOOKING AT OVER 71000 STUDENTS BY 2026, WE'D BE SEVENTY FOUR SIX, BASICALLY BY 2031.

WE ALWAYS SAY THAT THE FIRST FIVE YEARS IS MORE LIKELY THAN THE LAST FIVE YEARS, BUT WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHERE WE THINK WE'RE HEADED.

AND SO THAT'S WHY WE DO GO AHEAD AND PROJECT FOR THAT TEN YEAR TIME FRAME.

WE DON'T EXPECT THE DISTRICT TO BE BUILT OUT IN 10 YEARS.

WE EXPECT IT TO BE RAPIDLY BUILDING OUT.

BUT WE DO EXPECT SOME OF THE GROWTH TO CONTINUE TO COME ON AFTER 2031.

OK. AND SO THEN WE'LL MOVE ON TO ZONING, AND I WANT TO GO AHEAD AND START WITH A HIGH SCHOOL ZONING MAP BECAUSE I THINK THAT'S OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE TO A LOT OF PEOPLE.

THIS FIRST MAP SHOWS THE CURRENT HIGH SCHOOL ATTENDANCE ZONES WITHOUT ANY GRANDFATHERING, SO WE DO NEED TO REMEMBER THAT WE'VE GOT EMERSON OPENING, SO THERE'S GOING TO BE SOME GRANDFATHERING OVER THERE.

SO WE'RE NOT CONCENTRATING ON THE EASTERN SIDE HERE.

THIS IS GEOCODING NINTH THROUGH 12TH GRADE AND THEN WE'RE LOOKING IN THIS SITUATION CAREFULLY AT MEMORIAL, AT LONE STAR AND AT REEDY.

AND SO THE SCHOOLS PRETTY BASICALLY ALL OF THEM AT THIS POINT ARE BUILT FOR ABOUT 2100 STUDENTS, AND SO YOU CAN SEE CLEARLY THAT LONE STAR NEEDS HELP.

THAT REEDY WILL NEED HELP AND THEN MEMORIAL WILL NEED IT SHORTLY.

AND SO THE DISTRICT IS PLANNING TO OPEN PANTHER CREEK.

AND SO THAT'S GREAT.

THAT TAKES THE HEAT OFF OF SOME OF THE SCHOOLS.

BUT THEN WE ALSO NEED TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO GO AHEAD AND RELIEVE REEDY JUST A BIT.

SO THIS NEXT MAP SHOWS OUR RECOMMENDED MAP FOR THE SCHOOL STARTING IN THE FALL OF 2022.

THIS WOULD BE THE OPENING OF PANTHER CREEK WITH 9TH THROUGH 11TH GRADE AND ALL OF THE OTHER CHANGES NINE THROUGH 10TH GRADE.

THE BLACK LINES THAT WE'RE SHOWING ON HERE ARE THE CURRENT HIGH SCHOOL ZONES, SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT MOVES.

WE'RE HOPING THAT THIS WILL REALLY HELP OUT.

SO WE'RE STARTING WITH PANTHER CREEK BEING PULLED FROM LONE STAR MEMORIAL, I THINK THAT MAKES SENSE.

AND THEN WE'RE ALSO LOOKING AT MAKING CHANGES TO REEDY MOVING ONE PLANNING UNIT FROM REEDY TO LONE STAR.

AND THEN THE AREA SOUTH OF LEGACY, MOVING TO FRISCO AND SOME OF FRISCO, THEN MOVING TO WAKELAND. SO TO START WITH PANTHER CREEK, I THINK IT'S EASIER TO UNDERSTAND THAT AT A GLANCE, THE PROPOSED ZONE HERE STARTS REALLY WITH THE AREA AROUND THE SCHOOL.

I THINK THAT'S REALLY NORMALLY A PRETTY GOOD PLACE TO START.

[00:30:03]

AND SO SINCE IT SITS IN THE MEMORIAL HIGH SCHOOL ZONE, IT NATURALLY PULLS A LOT OF STUDENTS FROM MEMORIAL.

BUT WE DO NEED TO MAKE SOME CHANGES TO LONE STAR ALSO.

AND SO THIS SHOWS THAT SIXTY SIX A, B, F AND L WOULD MOVE TO LONE STAR FROM PANTHER CREEK. I THINK I'M SORRY FROM LONE TO YES, FROM LONE STAR TO PANTHER CREEK.

AND SO THAT DIVIDER THERE GOES ALONG 423 AND ALONG WOODLAKE PARKWAY.

SO WE'RE HOPING THAT'S A NICE, CLEAN, EASY DIVIDER.

AND THOSE PLANNING UNITS INCLUDE SUNSET POINT, FRISCO RANCH AND THE PRESERVE AT FRISCO RANCH. THOSE WILL BE MOVING ON TO PANTHER CREEK.

ONE THING THAT THIS DOES IS IT PUTS A LOT OF THE FIELD TRACKS INTO THE PANTHER CREEK ATTENDANCE ZONE, AND THAT ALSO DOES RELIEVE MEMORIAL BECAUSE MEMORIAL HAS YOU CAN'T SEE IT VERY WELL. IT'S KIND OF OFF THE PAGE, BUT HAS THE BRINKMANN PARCELS AND THOSE WILL BE COMING ON HERE BEFORE TOO LONG.

WE ALSO HAD TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO RELIEVE REEDY, AND THAT WAS A MORE DIFFICULT PROPOSITION. WE'VE GOT THE BORDER OF THE DISTRICT IN TWO SIDES OF REEDY AND THEN WE HAVE THE SCHOOL ITSELF SITTING ON THE EASTERN SIDE OF THE DISTRICT.

AND SO WE'RE LOOKING AT MOVING, PLANNING IT AT 42C TO LONE STAR.

THAT INCLUDES LAKE TRAILS, ENCLAVE OF CREEK WOOD AND KINGS COURT.

THAT AREA IS ON A HARD CORNER, AND SO IT'S NOT WALKABLE VERY EASILY TO OTHER SORTS OF NEIGHBORHOODS. THE KIDS AREN'T GOING TO WALK DOWN THE STREET BECAUSE THEY'RE ON THAT HARD CORNER. AND SO IT'S ALSO JUST NORTH OF FRISCO LAKES, WHICH IS A RETIREMENT COMMUNITY.

AND SO WE'RE LOOKING AT MOVING THAT UP TO LONE STAR.

AND THEN WE LOOKED AROUND AT WHAT HOW ELSE TO RELIEVE REEDY BECAUSE THAT WAS NOT ENOUGH.

AND SO WE LOOKED AT OTHER AREAS.

BUT IN SOME SITUATIONS, WHAT WE WERE HAVING TO DO TO GET THE RIGHT NUMBERS IS WE WERE LOOKING AT DIVIDING DOWN ALLEYWAYS AND THINGS LIKE THAT, AND A LOT OF THOSE NEIGHBORHOODS ARE VERY INTERCONNECTED.

SO WHAT WE HAVE OPTED TO DO IS TO MOVE THE STUDENTS THAT ARE SOUTH OF LEBANON, AND THIS INCLUDES THE VISTAS, MAIN VIEW, AUSTIN RIDGE, AND THAT THAT SORT OF THING OVER TO FRISCO AND THEN TO RELIEVE THE AREA JUST SOUTH OF MAIN OUT OF FRISCO.

THEY CAN JUST GO STRAIGHT UP TO WAKELAND THERE.

AND SO THIS IS MAIN PLACE, THE CANALS, VILLAGES OF MAJESTIC GARDENS, PARK PLACE ESTATES, VILLAGE LAKES, ET CETERA.

AND THAT AREA IS BOUNDED BY AND THEN WE'VE GOT CITATION, LEGACY AND COTTON GIN.

AND SO WE'RE HOPING THAT THAT'S NICE CLEAN BOUNDARIES AND THAT THEY JUST GO STRAIGHT UP THE ROAD THERE TO WAKELAND.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THIS DOES NOT ALTER THE LINE BETWEEN FRISCO AND MEMORIAL, AND THERE'S A NOTE THERE THAT FRISCO WITH ITS IB PROGRAM.

IT PULLS IN ABOUT A HUNDRED AND FIFTY STUDENTS FROM OUTSIDE OF ITS ZONE INTO THE INTO THE ZONE THERE, INTO THE ENROLLMENT.

SO WE DO NEED TO LEAVE SOME SPACE THERE FOR THOSE.

SO MOVING ON IN THE MIDDLE SCHOOLS, WE WANT TO JUST TOUCH ON THEM FOR A SECOND.

WE CAN SEE THIS STARTING POINT HERE IS THE PROJECTIONS BY CURRENT ATTENDANCE ZONE AND WE'LL GET RELIEF FOR TRENT WITH THE OPENING OF A NEW SCHOOL IN THAT AREA AND WE'LL GET RELIEF ON THE EASTERN SIDE WITH OPENING OF A NEW SCHOOL.

AND SO WHAT WE REALLY WANTED TO LOOK AT HERE JUST BRIEFLY, IS PIONEER HERITAGE.

ALL OF THESE SCHOOLS ARE BUILT FOR ABOUT THE NINE HUNDRED RANGE, AND SO WE THOUGHT WE COULD MAKE ONE LITTLE.

WE'RE REALLY TWO LITTLE TWEAKS THERE.

WHAT YOU'RE SEEING HERE IS OUR SUGGESTION, AND THIS IS THE NEW PROPOSED HIGH SCHOOL ZONES SHOWN IN BLACK SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THAT WE'RE WE ARE SUGGESTING THAT WE MOVE 42C OUT OF PIONEER HERITAGE. THAT'S ONE I TALKED ABOUT THAT WASN'T VERY WALKABLE.

IT'S ON THAT HARD CORNER THERE.

MOVE THAT INTO COBB.

IT RELIEVES PIONEER HERITAGE A LITTLE BIT AND IT PUTS THEM IN A BETTER FEEDER.

AND THEN THERE'S ALSO 40C IT'S OVER ON THE EASTERN SIDE.

WE WOULD MOVE THAT INTO PIONEER HERITAGE.

THERE ARE NO KIDS IN IT RIGHT NOW, AND THERE'S NO PROJECTIONS IN THAT AREA FOR SEVERAL YEARS. WE'RE EXPECTING SOME MULTIFAMILY BUILD OUT LATER ON, BUT IT DOESN'T IMPACT THE NUMBERS, AND IT DOES CLEAN UP THE FEEDERS A LITTLE BIT THERE.

EVERYBODY SEEMS TO ALWAYS WANT FEEDERS, AND I DON'T I DON'T THINK THAT I WAS TRYING TO THINK EARLIER THAT WE WORK WITH A DISTRICT THAT HAS MORE THAN ABOUT TEN OR ELEVEN THOUSAND STUDENTS THAT HAS MANAGED TO DO THAT.

IT'S A VERY DIFFICULT PROPOSITION, BUT WE DO TRY TO CLEAN THEM UP WHEN WE CAN.

AND THEN, OF COURSE, WE NEED TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS BECAUSE WE NEED TO DRAW A ZONE FROM MINETT.

AND SO WE ARE ALSO BESIDES MINETT.

WE'RE LOOKING AT ONE LITTLE TWEAK TO PURIFOY AND CORBELL.

SO MINETT HERE YOU CAN SEE THIS VERY LARGE ENROLLMENT THAT WE'RE PROJECTING AT NEWMAN.

AND SO THAT'S REALLY WHAT'S DRIVING THE OPENING OF MINETT.

BUT ADJACENT TO THAT, WE'VE GOT MILLER AT NINE TWENTY THREE AND THESE SCHOOLS ARE BUILT FOR ABOUT SEVEN FIFTY.

AND SO WE CAN SEE THAT MILLER'S GOT A HIGH ENROLLMENT PROJECTED AND WE CAN SEE BOALS HAS A LOWER ENROLLMENT.

IT HAS AGED OUT AT SOME POINT IN TIME.

BOALS GOT VERY LARGE AND WE HAD TO START TAKING PIECES OFF OF IT.

AND SO AT THIS POINT, IT'S AGED OUT A BIT.

[00:35:02]

AND SO WE'VE GOT SOME SPACE THERE.

AND SO WE THOUGHT, WELL, WE WERE IN THIS ZONING PROCESS THAT WE MIGHT OPEN MINETT AND ALSO MAKE SOME CHANGES CHANGES TO THAT AREA.

SO I'M GOING TO GET OUT OF THIS JUST A BIT AND ZOOM IN SO WE CAN SEE MAYBE A LITTLE BIT BETTER. SO THE FIRST CHANGE THAT IS MAYBE EASIEST TO SEE IS MOVING FORWARD 44I TO PURIFOY, FROM CORBELL TO PURIFOY.

AND SO THAT GETS STUDENTS OUT OF CORBELL BECAUSE IT WAS ON THE HIGH END PURIFOY WAS ON THE LOW END. WE'VE MADE THAT CHANGE AND THAT MAKES A CLEANER FEEDER FOR THEM FROM PURIFOY INTO THE MIDDLE SCHOOL.

AND THEN FROM MINETT, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT CARVING IT, LET ME SCROLL UP A LITTLE BIT HERE.

GOODNESS. OK, SO FROM MINETT, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT CARVING IT ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY OUT OF THE NEWMAN ZONE, I THINK WE WERE OVER 1100 KIDS PROJECTED FOR THE FALL IF WE DID NOT DO THAT. AND SO MINETT'S IS IS COMING OUT OF NEWMAN, SAY, 51F WHICH ACTUALLY, I THINK IS CITY OF FRISCO LAND.

AND SO THERE ARE NO STUDENTS PROJECTED IN THAT.

SO IT'S RECTANGULAR ZONE.

THERE'S COMING OUT OF NEWMAN REALLY HELPING NEWMAN OUT.

MINETT IS PROJECTED TO OPEN AROUND 60 PERCENT OF ITS CAPACITY.

AND SO BUT THEN IT'S PROJECTED TO GROW ON UP BY THE END OF THE PROJECTION PERIOD.

WE'RE LOOKING AT ABOUT SEVEN HUNDRED AND SIXTY NINE STUDENTS IN THIS ZONE, AND SO THEREFORE IT WOULD BE FULL.

AND SO IT HAS MOST OF THE FIELD TRACKS IN THERE.

AND SO THAT'S ALLOWING FOR GROWTH AS ALL OF THAT SORT OF STUFF COMES ON.

BUT BESIDES THAT LARGE NEED FOR RELIEF AT NEWMAN, I ALSO MENTIONED MILLER BEING HIGH AND BOALS BEING LOW. AND SO WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT IS MAKING SOME CHANGES THERE.

WE'RE LOOKING AT 66L AND 66B FROM MILLER TAKING THOSE AND SENDING THEM TO PHILLIPS.

THAT'S THE FRISCO RANCH ONE AND TWO.

AND THAT WOULD DRAW MILLERS ENROLLMENT DOWN.

AND THEN WE PUT THOSE INTO PHILLIPS.

BUT THEN WE'RE GOING TO CHANGE A LITTLE BIT FROM PHILLIPS, PHILLIPS.

PHILLIPS CURRENTLY HAS SORT OF AN ARM THAT STICKS OFF OF IT TO THE SOUTH AND THE WEST.

AND SO WE CAN TAKE THAT APART AND MAYBE PUT IT BACK INTO CLOSER SCHOOLS THERE.

WE WOULD BE MOVING, SAY 49B, WHICH IS GRAY HAWK BACK TO BOALS WITH THE REST OF GRAY HAWK AND WE'D HAVE 66H AND C WHICH ARE PORTIONS OF SUNSET POINT AND LAKE VIEW THERE, AND WE WOULD BE MOVING 66E, WHICH IS ALSO ONE OF THOSE SECTIONS THERE OF I THINK IT'S LAKE VIEW I'D HAVE TO LOOK AT IT TO ROBERTSON TO SORT OF LEVEL THOSE OUT.

SO AT THIS POINT, I THINK WE'RE GOING TO OPEN IT TO ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU GUYS HAVE, I KNOW THAT WAS AN AWFUL LOT.

I HAVE A QUESTION. CAN WE GO BACK TO THE THE MAP THAT HAS THE NUMBERS OF STUDENTS ON THERE? I HAD A QUESTION ABOUT THIS EARLIER AND I JUST WANT CLARIFICATION FOR THE COMMUNITY.

ON WHICH GRADE LEVEL? THE ONE WITH THE NUMBERS THAT HAS, I THINK IT'S THE NEXT ONE.

HIGH SCHOOL, MIDDLE SCHOOL OR MIDDLE.

I'M SORRY, ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

ELEMENTARY. MY APOLOGIES THIS ONE.

AND THOSE NUMBERS LOOK LOW FOR CHRISTIE, BRIGHT CARROLL, BUT TO MY UNDERSTANDING, THEY HAVE EXTRA PROGRAMS THERE THAT.

THAT'S RIGHT. SO THOSE NUMBERS AREN'T NECESSARILY REPRESENTING THEIR ACTUAL.

THAT'S RIGHT. AND THAT'S ONE THING I SHOULD HAVE TOUCHED ON HERE.

YOU CAN SEE DOWN HERE AT THE BOTTOM, SINCE I HAD ZOOMED IN, WE DIDN'T SEE THEM.

THESE NUMBERS, WHAT WE HAVE TO DO IS WE HAVE TO START WITH A PROJECTED THE PROJECTED GEOCODED STUDENTS.

THAT IS, WE TAKE YOUR STUDENTS ACTUALLY, THE DISTRICT TAKES YOUR STUDENTS AND GEOCODES THEM AND THEY POP UP LIKE LITTLE DOTS.

WE HAVE TO COUNT THEM FIRST ABOUT WHERE THEY SHOULD BE GOING TO SCHOOL BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE THOSE HOMES ARE COMING OUT OF GROUND, OUT OF THE GROUND, AND THAT'S HOW WE'RE HANDLING THOSE. THERE IS A SECOND LAYER OF TRANSFERS BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN DISTRICTS THAT HAPPEN AN AWFUL LOT OF TIME THAT'S FOR PROGRAMS. AND SO THESE FIGURES ACTUALLY NONE OF THESE FIGURES ON THE SCREEN ON THE MAPS ARE INCLUDING ANY OF THE BILINGUAL STUDENTS BECAUSE THOSE STUDENTS WERE ALL BEING MAGNETIZED TO ONE SPOT. AND SO YES, THESE AREN'T SHOWING PRE-K BEING TRANSFERRED IN.

THEY'RE NOT SHOWING THE IB PROGRAM AT BRIGHT AND THEY'RE NOT SHOWING BILINGUAL PROGRAMS AT CARROLL OR IF YOU WERE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DISTRICT, THE ONES AT CHRISTIE.

SURE. AND ADDITIONALLY, ON THE HIGH SCHOOL MAPS, FRISCO HIGH ALSO IS NOT INCLUSIVE OF OUR IB STUDENTS.

RIGHT. THAT'S WHAT I MENTIONED THAT 100 OR 150 STUDENTS.

RIGHT? YEAH.

SO THAT'S WHY IT IS AT ABOUT 2000 STUDENTS HERE FOR ITS ENROLLMENT.

AND THEN WE WOULD BE LOOKING AT 150 OR SO FROM OUTSIDE THE ZONE THAT ARE COMING IN.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU. DR.

FOUCHE, CAN YOU GO OVER THE DATES THAT THE COMMUNITY HAS UPCOMING THAT WE CAN WE'LL HEAR COMMENTS AND WE HAVE A WE HAVE A LONG PROCESS AHEAD.

THIS IS JUST KIND OF THE KICKOFF FOR THIS, FOR THIS PROCESS.

YES, MA'AM. THIS ALWAYS KIND OF STARTS IT'S A THREE MEETING PROCESS.

SO TONIGHT'S A LOT OF YOU GUYS, EVEN IT'S YOUR FIRST TIME TO GET TO SEE THE ZONES.

[00:40:01]

AND THEN TWO WEEKS FROM LAST NIGHT, WHICH IS THE 25TH OCTOBER 25TH, WE'LL HAVE A NIGHT.

THAT'S A SPECIAL BOARD MEETING.

THAT'S JUST FOR CITIZEN FEEDBACK FOR THESE PROPOSED ZONES.

AND THEN THE NOVEMBER 8TH REGULARLY SCHEDULED BOARD MEETING WILL BE THE THE MEETING WHERE WE TAKE OFFICIAL ACTION ON THESE ZONES FOR THE 22 23 SCHOOL YEAR.

CONTACT US AND PROVIDE ANY INPUT NOT ONLY FOR THE OCTOBER TWENTY FIFTH BUT PRIOR TO THEN.

YEAH, THERE'S THERE'S THE INFO FOR THE ZONING WEBSITE AND THE NUMBER FOR LAURIE AND SCOTT, TOO. AND ONE MORE THING ON THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS WHEN WE'RE ON THAT ONE.

SO AT NINE IN THE MIDDLE SCHOOL IS AT 90 PERCENT CAPACITY.

TRANSFERS ARE STILL AVAILABLE TO THE STUDENTS.

THERE DOES LOOK LIKE THERE'S SOME OPPORTUNITY FOR TRANSFERS AND SOME MORE FLEXIBILITY FOR . DEFINITELY.

WITH REGARD TO THE ZONES.

YES, SIR. OK.

SO DURING THAT, THERE WAS A LOT OF NUMBERS AND NEIGHBORHOODS AND THINGS MIXED AROUND.

SO ANY FAMILY THAT IS POSSIBLY GOING TO BE AFFECTED BY THIS WILL GET SOME SORT OF NOTIFICATION TOMORROW.

IS WHY I WAS UP HERE. SO THANK YOU FOR THAT.

YES, WE WILL BE SENDING OUT COMMUNICATION TOMORROW MORNING TO ALL AFFECTED FAMILIES.

SO ANY OF THE ZONES THAT WE MENTIONED CHANGING IN NEIGHBORHOODS THAT ARE CURRENTLY IN THE PROPOSAL, THOSE FAMILIES WILL RECEIVE COMMUNICATION FROM THE DISTRICT TOMORROW, KIND OF EXPLAINING NOT ONLY THE TIMELINE THAT DR.

FOUCHE WENT OVER, BUT ALSO EXACTLY THE THE STREETS AND WHAT ZONES ARE MOVING INTO WHERE AND GRADE LEVELS. THE LETTER WILL ALSO MENTION A LITTLE BIT ABOUT TRANSPORTATION AND IS TRANSPORTATION AVAILABLE IN THOSE POTENTIAL ZONING MOVES OR NOT.

I HAVE A QUESTION FOR THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL KIDS, THE FIFTH GRADE STUDENTS, THE ABILITY TO TRANSFER BACK TO THE CAMPUSES THAT ARE RELIEVED.

WILL THAT HELP THEM? THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WE CAN DEFINITELY LOOK AT AND WE'LL BE ABLE TO SIT DOWN WITH Y'ALL AND GIVE YOU GUYS INPUT AND SOME DATA ON THOSE NUMBERS AND WHAT THOSE WOULD DO IF WE ALLOWED A FIFTH GRADE TRANSFER BACK FROM HIS OWN SCHOOL.

WHAT WE'D WANT TO BE CAREFUL OF IS IN ALLOWING THAT IF EVERY STUDENT TOOK ADVANTAGE, WOULD IT PUT A SCHOOL AT AN 800 850 CAPACITY? THAT COULD CAUSE SOME SOME ISSUES FOR THE NEXT YEAR, BUT WE'LL WE'LL SIT DOWN WITH YOU AND GO THROUGH THAT INFORMATION.

I'M SORRY, TO THE NEW CAMPUS LIKE TO MINETT FOR THE STUDENTS THAT ARE GOING TO TO MINETT, WHAT GRADE LEVELS ARE GOING THERE? K FIVE. K FIVE OKAY, THANK YOU.

AND FOR THE HIGH SCHOOLS, IT'S? FOR PANTHER CREEK. IT'S 9-11.

ALL THE OTHER HIGH SCHOOL ZONING CHANGES THAT KRIS PRESENTED TONIGHT, IT WOULD BE NINTH AND 10TH GRADERS NEXT YEAR.

JUNIORS, INCOMING JUNIORS AND SENIORS WOULD STAY AT THEIR HOME CAMPUS.

OKAY. WHERE THEY CURRENTLY ARE, I SHOULD SAY.

OK, THANK YOU. ONE MORE WE HAVE DONE NINTH AND 10TH OR NINE THROUGH 11TH FOR A REASON BEFORE USUALLY RELATED TO TO UIL, DO YOU WANT TO EXPLAIN WHY THAT'S GOOD OR BAD? THANK YOU. THIS ONE'S A LITTLE TOUGHER, BUT TYPICALLY WHEN WE OPEN A SCHOOL IN AN EVEN NUMBERED YEAR BECAUSE THAT'S A UIL REALIGNMENT YEAR, WE LOOK AT OPENING EITHER FRESHMEN OR FRESHMEN THROUGH JUNIORS.

A LOT OF THAT HAS TO DO WITH VARSITY ATHLETICS.

AND IF YOU WERE TO OPEN IN AN EVEN YEAR WITH A NINTH AND 10TH GRADE ONLY CAMPUS FOOTBALL FOR SURE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PLAY VARSITY FOR TWO YEARS, WHICH WOULD MEAN THOSE STUDENTS WOULD ONLY HAVE THE ABILITY TO PLAY VARSITY SPORTS THEIR SENIOR YEAR.

IT'S A LITTLE DIFFERENT WITH NON-FOOTBALL SPORTS, BUT THAT'S KIND OF THE DRIVER IN WHY WE IN AN EVEN YEAR DO A FRESHMAN OR FRESHMAN JUNIOR.

AND THEN ON AN ODD YEAR, WE'LL DO A FRESHMAN AND SOPHOMORE OPENING.

THANK YOU ALL. THANK Y'ALL VERY MUCH.

WE KNOW THIS IS AN EXHAUSTIVE TASK AND IT'S AN EMOTIONAL ONE AND YOU KNOW, WE ARE GROWING DISTRICT AND REZONING IS OUR LEAST FAVORITE THING TO DO AS A GROWING DISTRICT, BUT WE KNOW THAT YOU ALL PUT A LOT OF CARE AND CONCERN AND THOUGHT A LOT OF THOUGHTFULNESS INTO THIS PROCESS. AND AS A BOARD, WE'RE VERY APPRECIATIVE OF THAT AND OF YOUR WILLINGNESS TO, NOT ONLY, YOU KNOW, WORK WITH THE BOARD, BUT ALSO WORK WITH THE COMMUNITY SO THAT WE CAN FIND THE BEST SOLUTIONS FOR ALL OF OUR KIDS.

SO THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH.

WE'LL MOVE ON TO ITEM SIX INVOCATION MR.

[6. Invocation]

PLEASE BOW YOUR HEADS WITH ME. HEAVENLY FATHER, TODAY WE OFFER THANKS FOR OUR FAMILIES, FRIENDS AND THE BLESSINGS OF FELLOWSHIP.

WE ASK THAT YOU ALLOW US TO BE A SOURCE OF HOPE FOR THOSE IN NEED AND THE SOURCE OF CONTENTMENT FOR THOSE WHO ARE LONELY.

[00:45:01]

COMMUNITY OF NEIGHBORS, FAMILIES AND FRIENDS, AND THAT THERE'S MUCH MORE THAT CONNECTS US THAN DIVIDES US. WE PRAY THE FEELINGS OF LOVE AND KINDNESS WILL ALWAYS BE REFLECTED IN OUR ACTIONS, AND WE LEAD AS WE LEAD OUR COMMUNITY FORWARD.

AMEN. ITEM SEVEN BOARD REPORT MS.

[7. Board Report]

GILLESPIE, OR SHOULD I SAY, PRESIDENT ELECT OF TASB GILLESPIE? FIRST, I WANTED TO JUST MENTION THANK YOU TO EMERSON HIGH SCHOOL FOR HOSTING THE FIRST INSIDE SCOOP OF THE YEAR ON OCTOBER 7TH.

GRACE MCDOWELL GAVE US A GREAT, WONDERFUL UPDATE ABOUT OUR ATHLETIC PROGRAMS, AND THE NEXT INSIDE SCOOP, WHICH IS OPEN TO ALL PARENTS AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS, IS AT LEBANON TRAIL HIGH SCHOOL AT 6:30 PM, SO THIS ONE IS IN THE EVENING AND.

ON DECEMBER 7TH. IS THAT RIGHT? DECEMBER 7TH. OK, THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.

OK, SO I HAD TO I.

TRUTH BE TOLD, ERIN MADE ME DO.

BUT AS ALWAYS, YOU CAN GO ON OUR WEBSITE TOO AT THE BOTTOM OF THE MAIN PAGE.

THERE'S A SCROLLING CALENDAR THAT WILL SAY, WHAT'S WHAT'S GOING ON EVERY DAY.

THERE'S ALWAYS SOMETHING GOING ON.

NEXT JUST A QUICK UPDATE.

ALL THE TRUSTEES AND A COUPLE OF STAFF MEMBERS ATTENDED THE IN END OF SEPTEMBER, I GUESS JUST A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO.

AND BESIDES ALL THE GREAT TRAINING AVAILABLE, WE WERE ALSO HEAR SOME GREAT SPEAKERS AND STUDENT PERFORMANCES FROM SUNNYVALE ISD AND FORT BEND ISD.

MANY OF YOU WILL REMEMBER THAT LAST YEAR IT WAS ALL VIRTUAL, SO IT WAS A LITTLE LITTLE DIFFERENT. SO THIS YEAR WAS NICE TO HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE THERE AND GET TO CONNECT WITH OTHER TRUSTEES ACROSS TEXAS.

JUST SOME NUMBERS THAT Y'ALL MAY NOT KNOW YET.

FOUR THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED AND FIFTY THREE ATTENDEES WERE THERE.

TWENTY FIVE CORPORATE SPONSORS AND THERE WERE TWO HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FOUR VENDORS.

SO THEY ALL CONTRIBUTE TO MAKING THAT CONVENTION POSSIBLE FOR US TO ATTEND.

AND THEN NEXT, JUST A QUICK THANK YOU TO NATALIE WITH ME AT THE TASB DELEGATE ASSEMBLY, WHICH IS WE HAD SOME LIVELY DEBATE ABOUT A COUPLE OF THINGS, BUT WE GOT IT DONE.

WE WERE A LITTLE LATE, BUT ALL GOOD AND ALL WELL, AND IT WAS GREAT TIME CONNECTING WITH OTHER TRUSTEES.

AND THEN I DON'T KNOW IF ANYBODY WANTS TO TALK ABOUT THE BAND SHOWCASE.

I'M SURE I KNOW A FEW OF US WERE THERE IF YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT THAT.

THE BAND SHOWCASE WAS INCREDIBLE AND I WOULD BE SHOCKED IF WE DIDN'T HAVE SOME STATE QUALIFIERS OR SOME PEOPLE PLACE AT STATE.

THEY WERE INCREDIBLE.

SO WAY TO GO TO ALL OF THE BAND PARENTS BECAUSE I KNOW Y'ALL PUT A LOT OF WORK INTO THAT IT WAS INCREDIBLE. SO THANK YOU.

DON'T YOU ALL CALL OCTOBER BAND-TOBER? YES. BECAUSE THAT'S ALL YOU'RE DOING THIS MONTH.

WE'RE HERE FOR IT. WE LOVE IT.

WE LOVE IT. AND I WOULD BE REMISS IF I DID NOT MENTION AGAIN OUR VERY OWN DEBBIE GILLESPIE, WHO WAS NOMINATED AND ELECTED TO SERVE AS PRESIDENT ELECT OF TASB, THE TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL BOARDS.

IT IS A HUGE DEAL.

IT IS HUGE FOR FRISCO THAT SHE SERVES ON OUR BOARD.

BUT TO TAKE ON THAT TYPE OF LEADERSHIP ROLE FOR THE ENTIRE STATE OF TEXAS IS INCREDIBLE.

WE'RE SO PROUD OF YOU AND WE'RE SO THANKFUL FOR YOUR SERVICE.

SO CAN WE ALL GIVE IT UP FOR MS. BAND PARENT HERE.

THE BAND SHOWCASE WAS BEYOND AMAZING, IT WAS PHENOMENAL.

AS A BAND PARENT, I WAS VERY EXCITED TO BE BACK IN THE BUILDING, WATCHING ALL OF THE BANDS PERFORM UNDER ONE ROOF, AND IF YOU MISSED IT, YOU CAN PLEASE JOIN US AT PROSPER ISD THIS SATURDAY. WE'LL BE THERE CHEERING ON EVERY FRISCO ISD SCHOOL AS THEY ARE PLANNING TO MAKE EVERY ATTEMPT TO HEAD TO STATE.

BOARD ANYTHING ELSE? OK, AWESOME. WE WILL MOVE ON TO ITEM EIGHT DISCUSSION AND PUBLIC HEARING REGARDING 2021

[8. Discussion and Public Hearing Regarding 2021 FIRST Rating]

FIRST RATING. MRS. SMITH.

GOOD EVENING. SO THIS IS OUR ANNUAL REQUIRED PUBLIC HEARING ON OUR FIRST RATING, I THINK I GIVE YOU THIS LITTLE SPIEL EVERY YEAR, BUT THIS DATA IS VERY OLD.

IT IS A REQUIREMENT THAT WE PRESENT IT TO YOU AT A BOARD MEETING A YEAR AND A HALF AFTER THE DATA IS ACTUALLY RELEVANT AND HOLD A PUBLIC HEARING ON IT.

[00:50:01]

SO I'M GOING TO KIND OF SPEED THROUGH THIS PRESENTATION BECAUSE NOTHING IN HERE IS UP TO DATE ANYMORE. BUT IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO STOP ME AND ASK THEM.

THE FINANCIAL INTEGRITY RATING SYSTEM OF TEXAS OR FIRST WAS ESTABLISHED TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL TRANSPARENCY TO PUBLIC EDUCATION, FINANCE AND MEANINGFUL FINANCIAL OVERSIGHT AND IMPROVEMENT FOR SCHOOL DISTRICTS.

SO THERE ARE 15 TOTAL INDICATORS, FIVE OF WHICH ARE CRITICAL.

CRITICAL INDICATORS MEAN YOU PASS OR FAIL.

SO IF YOU FAIL, THEN YOU FAIL THE WHOLE THING.

IF YOU FAIL ONE OF THOSE, THEN YOU FAIL THE WHOLE THING.

OTHER INDICATORS ARE GENERALLY MEASURED ON A TEN POINT SCALE.

SO OUR 2021 RATING, LIKE I SAID, IS BASED ON 2019 2020 DATA.

SO THIS DATA IS ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF OLD AT THIS POINT.

YOU HAVE SEEN ALL OF THE NUMBERS PREVIOUSLY IN OUR AUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND ALL OF THAT GOOD STUFF, BUT I AM GOING, OH, LOOK, THERE WE GO.

A QUICK SUMMARY OF STATEWIDE RESULTS.

EIGHT HUNDRED AND FORTY FIVE DISTRICTS IN THE STATE EARNED A RATING OF A WHICH IS EARNED IF YOU GET AT LEAST 90 POINTS OUT OF 100.

YOU CAN SEE KIND OF THE PERCENTAGE BREAKDOWN THERE AND THEN IT KIND OF GOES ALL THE WAY DOWN TO HOW MANY DISTRICTS GOT B, C OR F.

SO SOME WOULD ARGUE THAT WITH SO MANY DISTRICTS RECEIVING AN A RATING THAT THE BAR IS SET PRETTY LOW, I WILL SAY THAT THE CRITERIA CHANGES EVERY FEW YEARS AND EVERY FEW YEARS.

IT GETS A LITTLE BIT MORE STRINGENT.

AND SO I AM PROUD THAT FRISCO ISD CONTINUES TO PERFORM VERY HIGHLY ON THESE INDICATORS.

THE FIRST FIVE INDICATORS ARE THE ONES THAT I SAID ARE CRITICAL, MEANING IF WE FAIL THESE, WE FAIL THE WHOLE DEAL.

THE FIRST ONE ASKS IF WE FILED OUR ANNUAL FINANCIAL REPORT ON TIME, AND WE DID.

SO WE PASSED. THE NEXT ONE ASKS IF WE HAD AN UNMODIFIED OPINION ON OUR FINANCIAL STATEMENTS THAT ESSENTIALLY MEANS THAT THERE WERE NO MATERIAL ERRORS OR POOR INTERNAL CONTROLS, AND WE DID RECEIVE THAT, SO WE PASSED.

THE THIRD INDICATOR ASKED IF WE MADE ALL OF OUR REQUIRED DEBT SERVICE PAYMENTS ON TIME, AND WE DID, SO WE PASSED.

THE FOURTH INDICATOR ASKED IF ALL PAYMENTS TO OTHER GOVERNMENTS ARE MADE WITHIN 30 DAYS.

AND WE DID SO.

WE PASSED. AND THE FIFTH INDICATOR IS NO LONGER SCORED.

THIS ONE ASKS IF OUR TOTAL ASSETS EXCEED TOTAL LIABILITIES FOR THE DISTRICT AS A WHOLE.

FEW YEARS AGO, THE GOVERNMENTAL ACCOUNTING STANDARDS CHANGED AND ABOUT.

I THINK EVERY DISTRICT IN THE STATE NOW HAS NOW WOULD FAIL THIS INDICATOR BECAUSE OF THAT CHANGE IN STANDARDS. SO THEY STILL HAVE IT AS A QUESTION, BUT THEY HAVEN'T BEEN SCORING IT SINCE 2017.

THE NEXT SET OF INDICATORS ARE CONSIDERED SOLVENCY INDICATORS.

THE FIRST ONE OF THOSE ASKS WHETHER FUND BALANCE IS DECLINING TOO QUICKLY AND IF IT IS DECLINING, WHETHER THERE'S SUFFICIENT FUND BALANCE TO OPERATE THE DISTRICT FOR AT LEAST SEVENTY FIVE DAYS, THIS ONE IS KIND OF A YES OR NO.

AND OUR FUND BALANCE WAS NOT DECLINING, SO WE RECEIVED A YES FOR THIS ONE.

THE NEXT ONE ASKS HOW LONG IN DAYS AFTER THE END OF OUR FISCAL YEAR COULD WE HAVE CONTINUED TO PAY OUR BILLS WITHOUT RECEIVING REVENUE? SO WE ALWAYS TALK ABOUT HOW IMPORTANT FUND BALANCES IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN CASH FLOW.

WHEN YOU DO OUR CALCULATION, WE HAD ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY THREE POINT NINE DAYS CASH ON HAND, WHICH EARNED US A SCORE OF TEN ON THIS ONE.

THE NEXT INDICATOR ASKS WHETHER WE HAVE SUFFICIENT SHORT TERM ASSETS AT THE END OF OUR FISCAL YEAR TO PAY OFF OUR SHORT TERM LIABILITIES.

WHEN YOU CALCULATE THAT RATIO, WE ARE AT THREE POINT ONE NINE FIVE SIX, WHICH EARNED US A SCORE OF TEN. THE NEXT ONE ASKED, ESSENTIALLY, DID WE SPEND MORE THAN WE EARN, WHERE REVENUES DID REVENUES EQUAL OR EXCEED EXPENSES? THE ANSWER THERE IS YES, SO WE GOT 10 POINTS FOR THAT ONE.

INDICATOR 10 MEASURES HOW ACCURATELY WE FORECASTED REVENUE BY COMPARING BUDGETED AND ACTUAL REVENUE REPORTED THROUGH PEIMS. SO WE REPORT OUR BUDGETED REVENUE THROUGH PEIMS IN JANUARY OF EVERY YEAR, WHICH IS ONE OF THE REASONS THAT WE COME BACK TO YOU IN DECEMBER AFTER WE'VE RECEIVED PEIMS SNAPSHOT ENROLLMENT DATA AND KIND OF RECALCULATE WHAT OUR STATE REVENUE WILL LOOK LIKE BASED ON HOW WELL WE PROJECTED OUR ENROLLMENT.

SO OUR VARIANCE WAS SEVEN PERCENT, WHICH WE NEEDED TO BE LESS THAN 10 PERCENT IN ORDER TO EARN A 10 ON THIS ONE. SO WE EARNED A 10.

THE NEXT INDICATOR ASKS IF OUR RATIO OF LONG TERM LIABILITIES TO TOTAL ASSETS IS SUFFICIENT TO SUPPORT LONG TERM SOLVENCY.

SO THIS ESSENTIALLY IS LIKE ASKING SOMEBODY IF THEIR MORTGAGE EXCEEDS THE MARKET VALUE OF THEIR HOME, ON THIS ONE.

[00:55:03]

THE STATE RECOGNIZES THAT HIGH GROWTH DISTRICTS INCUR ADDITIONAL OPERATING COSTS WHEN WE OPEN NEW CAMPUSES.

AND SO IF OUR ENROLLMENT INCREASED BY SEVEN PERCENT OR MORE OVER A FIVE YEAR PERIOD WHICH, AS YOU JUST HEARD IN THE LAST PRESENTATION, IT DEFINITELY DID, THEN WE AUTOMATICALLY PASS, GET A 10 ON THIS INDICATOR.

SO JUST I KIND OF PUT THE CALCULATION DOWN THERE FOR YOU TO SEE WHERE WE WOULD HAVE BEEN.

WE WOULD NOT HAVE RECEIVED A 10 BECAUSE WE ARE FAST GROWTH.

BUT BUT AGAIN, BECAUSE WE'RE FAST GROWTH, WE GOT A BREAK ON THAT ONE.

THE NEXT ONE LOOKS AT OUR ABILITY TO MAKE PRINCIPAL AND INTEREST PAYMENTS WITH PROPERTY TAXES. THIS IS THE ONLY INDICATOR THAT WE DID NOT GET A 10 ON.

WE GOT AN EIGHT ON THIS ONE.

BUT FOR GOOD REASON.

SO WE DO NOT CURRENTLY BRING IN ENOUGH PROPERTY TAXES WITH OUR DEBT TAX RATE TO PAY ALL OF OUR DEBT PAYMENTS, AND THAT IS INTENTIONAL.

YOU GUYS KNOW THAT WE HAVE BEEN USING DEBT SERVICE FUND BALANCE TO TO HELP MAKE THOSE DEBT PAYMENTS FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN A TWENTY SEVEN CENT DEBT TAX RATE. SO THIS WE TOOK A TWO POINT HIT ON OUR FIRST RATING IN ORDER TO HELP KEEP THE TAX RATE A LITTLE BIT LOWER.

INDICATOR 13 MEASURES THE PERCENTAGE OF OUR BUDGET SPENT ON ADMINISTRATION.

THERE ARE DIFFERENT PERCENTAGE CRITERIA DEPENDING ON HOW LARGE OF A DISTRICT YOU ARE.

WE ARE MUCH LARGER THAN TEN THOUSAND, BUT THAT IS THE LARGEST CATEGORY THAT THEY HAVE.

AND SO IN ORDER TO GET A 10 ON THIS ONE, OUR ADMINISTRATIVE COST RATIO NEEDS TO BE LESS THAN EIGHT POINT FIFTY FIVE PERCENT.

OURS WAS SIX POINT ONE NINE PERCENT, SO WE GOT A 10.

THE NEXT ONE ASKS IF OUR IF OUR DISTRICT'S ENROLLMENT DECLINE DID THE NUMBER OF STAFF WE EMPLOYED DECLINE PROPORTIONALLY.

OUR JUST OUR ENROLLMENT DID NOT DECLINE, SO WE GOT TO 10 ON THIS ONE.

THE NEXT SET OF INDICATORS IS FINANCIAL COMPETENCE INDICATORS.

THE THE FIRST ONE ASKS, HOW WELL DID WE PROJECT AVERAGE DAILY ATTENDANCE AT THE START OF THE BIENNIUM? SO EVERY TWO YEARS RIGHT BEFORE THE LEGISLATIVE SESSION, WE HAVE TO SUBMIT ENROLLMENT AND AVERAGE DAILY ATTENDANCE PROJECTIONS TO TEA.

AND SO THEY COME BACK AND THEY LOOK AT HOW WELL WE PROJECTED THAT.

SO THANKS TO PASA, WE WERE BELOW SEVEN PERCENT, WELL BELOW SEVEN PERCENT VARIANCE.

AND SO WE RECEIVED A SCORE OF FIVE ON THAT ONE.

THE NEXT INDICATOR MEASURES THE QUALITY OF THE DATA THAT WE REPORT TO PEIMS, SO WE REPORT OUR FINANCIAL INFORMATION TO PEIMS EVERY YEAR AND WE NEED LESS THAN A THREE PERCENT VARIANCE IN ORDER TO GET A YES ON THIS ONE, WE HAD ACTUALLY A ZERO PERCENT VARIANCE, SO WE GOT A YES ON THAT ONE.

THE NEXT QUESTION ASKS IF THERE WERE ANY MATERIAL WEAKNESSES REPORTED BY OUR AUDITORS.

A MATERIAL WEAKNESS IS A SIGNIFICANT DEFICIENCY IN INTERNAL CONTROLS THAT COULD RESULT IN A MATERIAL MISSTATEMENT OF OUR FINANCIAL STATEMENTS.

OUR AUDITORS DID NOT FIND ANY SIGNIFICANT DEFICIENCIES IN INTERNAL CONTROLS, AND NONE OF THOSE THEREFORE ROSE TO THE LEVEL OF MATERIAL WEAKNESS.

SO WE GOT A YES ON THAT ONE.

INDICATOR 18 ASKED IF OUR AUDITORS FOUND THAT WE COMPLIED WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS, CONTRACTS AND REQUIREMENTS FROM OUR GRANTING AGENCIES, AND WE DID.

INDICATOR 19 ASKED IF WE COMPLIED WITH ALL LEGAL REQUIREMENTS TO POST FINANCIAL TRANSPARENCY INFORMATION, AND WE DID.

AND INDICATOR 20 ASKED IF WE COMPLIED WITH ALL LEGAL.

OH NO, THAT'S THE SAME ONE OVER AGAIN.

SORRY ABOUT THAT. SO ADD THAT ALL UP.

WE GOT A SCORE OF NINETY EIGHT, WHICH GAVE US AN A RATING.

YAY! THERE ARE SOME ADDITIONAL DISCLOSURES THAT ARE REQUIRED TO BE REPORTED AS A PART OF THIS PUBLIC HEARING EVERY YEAR.

THE SUPERINTENDENTS EMPLOYMENT CURRENT EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT IS ONE OF THOSE, AS WELL AS A SUMMARY OF REIMBURSEMENTS RECEIVED BY THE SUPERINTENDENT AND BOARD FOR FISCAL YEAR 2020.

THERE ARE ALSO SOME OTHER REPORTS THAT ARE REQUIRED, BUT THEY DIDN'T APPLY TO FRISCO ISD.

ANYBODY WHO'S INTERESTED IN GETTING THOSE REPORTS IF YOU CLICK ON THE LINK FROM THE BOARD BOOK TO THIS PRESENTATION, EACH ONE OF THESE IS A HOT LINK AND IT WILL TAKE YOU DIRECTLY TO THAT REPORT. AND I APOLOGIZE.

AT THE BEGINNING, I SAID THERE WERE 15 INDICATORS, THERE WERE 15 LAST YEAR, AND THEY KIND OF BROKE SOME OF THEM OUT TO MAKE 20.

SO I'LL FIX THAT IN THE PRESENTATION.

BUT WE GOT AN A.

YEAH US. SEE YOU NEXT YEAR.

NICE JOB. ANY QUESTIONS? NO WE APPRECIATE IT, AND WE DID NOT HAVE ANYONE SIGN UP FOR THE PUBLIC HEARING COMPONENT OF THIS ADVENTURE, SO WE WILL MOVE ON TO ITEM NINE UPDATE ON INTERNAL AUDIT DEPARTMENT

[9. Update on Internal Audit Department activity]

ACTIVITY. MR. GROOVER.

[01:00:11]

ALL RIGHT. WE'LL GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON THE PREVIOUS QUARTER OF INTERNAL AUDIT DEPARTMENT ACTIVITY STARTING OFF AS WE USUALLY DO.

FISCAL YEAR 2021 AUDIT PLAN.

WE COMPLETED THAT PLAN.

THE TWO AUDITS WE FINALIZED DURING THAT QUARTER WERE FEDERAL PROGRAMS WHICH DEALT SPECIFICALLY WITH TITLE ONE PART A PORTION OF THE FEDERAL PROGRAMS. THERE'S A LOT OF OTHER PARTS TO THAT, BUT WE SCULPTED FOR JUST THAT ONE.

WE'LL COME BACK AT ANOTHER TIME AND LOOK AT THE THE OTHER PARTS.

AND WE ALSO COMPLETE THE FLEET.

YOU RECEIVED THOSE DURING THE QUARTER AND YOU ALSO HAVE THOSE IN YOUR MATERIALS THIS EVENING. FISCAL YEAR 2022 AUDIT PLAN.

WE HAVE A DRAFT REPORT WE'RE WORKING ON FOR ID CARDS ACCESS, SO THAT'S NEARING COMPLETION . GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING.

WE JUST KICKED THAT ONE OFF.

WE'RE IN THE PLANNING STAGE ON THAT AUDIT AND WE'RE ABOUT 40 PERCENT DONE WITH OUR CAMPUS ACTIVITY FUNDS REVIEWS FOR THIS YEAR.

WE USUALLY SELECT PROBABLY 25 TO GO OUT AND RANDOMLY SELECTED TWO.

WE DON'T PICK ON ANYBODY, SO WE GO OUT AND TAKE A LOOK AT THEIR CAMPUS ACTIVITY PLANS.

RECOMMENDATION TRACKING FISCAL YEAR 19, WE HAVE 95 PERCENT COMPLETE, THE TWO THAT REMAINING ARE A LITTLE BIT LONGER PROJECT, SO THAT'S THE REASON WHY THOSE ARE KIND OF HANGING THERE.

FISCAL YEAR 20, WE HAVE 71 PERCENT.

WE'RE HOPING TO GET A FEW MORE OF THOSE CLOSED OUT WHEN WE MEET AGAIN IN DECEMBER AND FISCAL YEAR 21.

THERE'S FIVE OF 20 TO 25 PERCENT, BUT THAT NUMBER IS GOING TO CHANGE BECAUSE THE 20 REPRESENTS THE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT WE'VE ACTUALLY PERFORMED WORK ON AND THAT ARE DUE.

THIS NEXT SLIDE JUST SHOWS WHICH AUDITS HAVE OUTSTANDING RECOMMENDATIONS ATTACHED TO THEM. JUST TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE MORE BREAKDOWN ON THAT, BUT WE ARE MOVING THE NEEDLE ON THOSE PRETTY GOOD. LIGHTHOUSE ACTIVITY SO FAR FOR THIS YEAR, WE HAD FIVE INCIDENT REPORTS THAT CAME IN TWO SUBSTANTIATED AND THREE WERE UNSUBSTANTIATED.

AND THAT KIND OF TAKES CARE OF JUST THE NORMAL INTERNAL AUDITING OPERATIONS STUFF.

BUT I DO HAVE ANOTHER ITEM HERE THAT I NEED TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT, AND THAT'S OUR QUALITY ASSURANCE AND IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM.

INTERNAL AUDITING STANDARD 13 HUNDRED REQUIRES THAT I DEVELOP AND MAINTAIN A QUALITY ASSURANCE AND IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM.

AND I DO THAT.

INTERNAL AUDITING STANDING 1320 REQUIRES THAT I COMMUNICATE THE RESULTS OF THE QUALITY ASSURANCE AND IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM TO SENIOR MANAGEMENT AND THE BOARD, AND I DO THAT AS WELL. THIS SLIDE JUST GIVES YOU A SNAPSHOT OF THE COMPONENTS OF A QUALITY ASSURANCE AND IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM. SO KIND OF GOING CLOCKWISE, YOU HAVE EXTERNAL ASSESSMENTS WHERE WE HAVE SOMEONE FROM THE OUTSIDE. TAKE A LOOK AT OUR OPERATION, THE INTERNAL ASSESSMENTS AND THOSE ARE THERE'S TWO ASPECTS OF THOSE WHICH ARE PERIODIC SELF-ASSESSMENT, WHICH WE CONDUCTED ONE OF THOSE ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF AGO.

AND IF YOU RECALL RECEIVING THAT REPORT AND THEN ONGOING MONITORING AS WELL.

DIGGING A LITTLE DEEPER INTO INTERNAL ASSESSMENTS, THE ONGOING MONITORING IS REALLY JUST OUR DAY TO DAY ACTIVITIES THAT WE DO THE SUPERVISION REVIEW.

THESE ARE JUST THINGS THAT WE, AND JUST THE DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN AUDITOR, REALLY, OR POLICIES PRACTICES TO COMPLETE AUDITS AND INTERACT WITH ADMINISTRATION.

AND IN THE PERIODIC SELF-ASSESSMENTS, WE CONDUCT THOSE EVERY TWO AND A HALF YEARS AND LOOKING FOR COMPLIANCE WITH STANDARDS, CODE OF ETHICS, DEFINITION OF INTERNAL AUDITING AND ALSO CORE PRINCIPLES.

THIS SLIDE HERE IS REALLY THE REQUIREMENT, THIS IS MY DETAILED REPORTING OF WHAT WE DO FOR THE ONGOING MONITORING.

SO WE HAVE ENGAGEMENT, PLANNING AND SUPERVISION FOR EVERY AUDIT.

WE HAVE AUDIT WORKPAPER AND REPORT REVIEW.

WE ARE A SMALLER SHOP.

WE'RE ONLY TWO PEOPLE.

SO MY SENIOR, YOU KNOW, I HAVE HER COUNTER OR CROSS REVIEW MY WORK JUST TO BE SURE THAT THINGS ARE AGAIN ABOUT THE QUALITY ASSURANCE IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM.

WE MONITOR AUDIT PROGRESS.

WE FOLLOW UP ON RECOMMENDATIONS.

WE ALSO SEND A SURVEY TO THE AUDIT AT THE END OF EACH AUDIT TO SOLICIT FEEDBACK ON THE AUDIT PROCESS. AND WE DO HAVE AN INTERNAL AUDIT MANUAL THAT WE KEEP UP TO DATE TO KIND OF GUIDE OUR PRACTICE DAY TO DAY AND SO ON AND SO FORTH.

THIS SLIDE HERE IS JUST THE TIMELINE OF KIND OF HOW WE ARE THE TIMELINE FOR REPORTING ON THE QUALITY ASSURANCE AND IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM.

THE GREEN DOTS INDICATE WHERE WE'VE BEEN.

THE YELLOW DOT INDICATES WHERE WE ARE.

WELL, I KNOW WE'RE IN OCTOBER, BUT I WAS OUT IN SEPTEMBER, SO WE'LL CATCH UP.

SO I JUST REPORTED THE ONGOING MONITORING TO YOU.

AND THEN THE BLUE DOT IS THE EXTERNAL ASSESSMENT THAT IS COMING UP IN AND AROUND

[01:05:03]

SEPTEMBER 2022.

THAT WILL BE, YOU KNOW, PREPARING FOR AND I FEEL CONFIDENT WE WON'T HAVE ANY ISSUES THERE SO THAT THE BLUE DOT REALLY ANSWERS THE QUESTION OF WHO AUDITS THE AUDITORS.

AND THAT'S I HAVE IN MY PRESENTATION.

AND NO QUESTIONS JUST WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK AND WORK WITH THE COMMITTEE.

APPRECIATE IT. THANKS. I WANTED TO SAY THE SAME THING.

THANK YOU. WE'LL MOVE ON TO ITEM 10 UPDATE ON MEXICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES CLASS.

[10. Update on Mexican-American Studies Class]

DR. CUNNINGHAM? I'D LIKE TO ASK PODIUM LAST YEAR.

AT ABOUT THIS TIME, WE SHARE WITH YOU OUR PLAN TO IMPLEMENT A FEW NEW COURSES ON OUR CAMPUSES OVER TIME.

WE SPOKE LAST YEAR ABOUT AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES, AND THIS YEAR WILL BE SHARING A LITTLE ABOUT OUR PLAN, A LITTLE BIT ABOUT OUR PLAN TO IMPLEMENT A NEW COURSE MEXICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES FOR THE 22-23 SCHOOL YEAR.

THESE ARE BOTH TEXT BASED COURSES, AND WE'RE EXCITED TO SHARE SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION WITH YOU. MS. MANUS? ALL RIGHT.

WELL, THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME TODAY.

I WANTED TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF UPDATE ON WHAT DR.

CUNNINGHAM WAS TELLING YOU.

THE FIRST THING I WANT TO TALK ABOUT IS THE WHY WE'RE STUDYING ETHNIC STUDIES COURSES IN FRISCO ISD, AND WE REALLY ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR STUDENTS TO FIND COURSES THAT ARE INTEREST TO THEM IN THE ELECTIVES.

SO WE'VE BEEN LOOKING AT ETHNIC STUDIES COURSES SINCE THEY CAME ABOUT IN 2018, AND OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS HAVE GOTTEN REALLY INTERESTED IN MAKING SURE OUR STUDENTS HAD THOSE OPPORTUNITIES AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL.

SO WE KNOW THAT THESE COURSES OFFER RELEVANT CURRICULUM TO OUR STUDENTS WHO CHOOSE TO TAKE THEM. IT ALSO HELPS US IN BUILDING COMMUNITY ACROSS OUR COMMUNITY, ACROSS OUR DISTRICT AND WITH OUR STUDENTS.

THEY GET A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF HISTORY THAT THEY DON'T ALWAYS GET A CHANCE TO DIG DEEP INTO IN OUR OTHER TEK SPACE COURSES.

AND THEN OBVIOUSLY IT'S GOING TO INCREASE STUDENT ENGAGEMENT.

WE ARE AN INQUIRY BASED COURSE, AND I'LL TALK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THAT IN A MINUTE, BUT IT'S NOT TEXTBOOK BASED AT ALL, SO THE KIDS GET REALLY EXCITED.

THEY'RE GOING TO COME TO A SOCIAL STUDIES CLASS AND NOT HAVE TO WHIP OUT A TEXTBOOK, SO THAT'S VERY FUN FOR THEM.

SO JUST A QUICK UPDATE.

LIKE DR. CUNNINGHAM SAID, LAST YEAR WE STARTED WORKING ON THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES COURSE, AND WE SPENT A LOT OF TIME LAST YEAR DEVELOPING A GOOD FOUNDATION FOR THAT.

SO LAST MAY, ONCE WE HAD OUR TEACHER SELECTED, WE GOT EVERYBODY TOGETHER, WE DID A VISIONING KICK OFF OF WHAT WE WANTED THIS COURSE TO LOOK LIKE AND HOW WE WANTED IT TO BE A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT THAN SOME OF THE OTHER SOCIAL STUDIES CLASSES THAT THEY COULD TAKE. SO WE HAD STUDENTS COME AND TALK WITH OUR TEACHERS AND TALK WITH OUR LEADERSHIP ABOUT WHAT THEY WANTED TO SEE IN THE COURSE.

AND THEN WE BUILT UPON THAT AND DID A LOT OF PROFESSIONAL LEARNING AROUND THAT WITH OUR TEACHERS. WE MOVED INTO THE SUMMER INTO CURRICULUM WRITING PROJECTS.

WE SPENT PRETTY MUCH THE ENTIRE MONTH OF JUNE WRITING CURRICULUM AND LEARNING TOGETHER.

AND BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE A TEXTBOOK, WE REALLY LEAN ON PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SOURCES TO TELL THE STORY. SO WE'RE LOOKING FOR THOSE UNIQUE STORIES TO EXPAND THE HISTORY THAT'S NOT INCLUDED IN TEXTBOOKS.

WE ALSO WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO HOST AN ETHNIC STUDIES CONFERENCE IN JULY.

WE DID THAT IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE DALLAS HOLOCAUST AND HUMAN RIGHTS MUSEUM AND ALSO DALLAS ISD AND OUR REGION 10 AND REGION 11 SERVICE CENTERS.

SO WE ALL THROUGH THIS CONFERENCE TOGETHER HAVE LOTS OF PARTICIPATION FROM AROUND THE STATE, AND WE'RE EXCITED TO CONTINUE THAT WORK THROUGHOUT THE STATE AND WE WON'T BE HOSTING THIS YEAR. WE'LL BE ROTATING THAT AMONG OUR PARTNERS, BUT WE WILL BE OFFERING AGAIN THIS SUMMER AND PARTNERING WITH THEM.

AND THEN WE ALSO HAD SEVERAL STUDENT VOLUNTEERS THAT CAME UP THIS SUMMER AND WORKED ALONGSIDE OUR TEACHERS TO HELP THEM THROUGHOUT THE CONFERENCE AND MAKE SURE THAT THEY KNEW WHERE THEY WERE GOING AND COULD FIND THEIR WAY AROUND.

SO OUR CURRENT ENROLLMENT, WE ARE OFFERING THIS ON 10 HIGH SCHOOLS RIGHT NOW, AND THE ONLY EXCEPTION IS EMERSON, BECAUSE THEY OPENED UP IT'S 9-10.

THIS COURSE IS FOR 10TH THROUGH 12TH GRADERS, AND SO EMERSON JUST WASN'T GOING TO HAVE THE STUDENT POPULATION TO MAKE THAT COURSE WORK FOR THIS FIRST YEAR.

SO NEXT YEAR, WE'RE OFFERING IT ON ALL 12 CAMPUSES RIGHT NOW, WE HAVE 273 STUDENTS ENROLLED IN AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES, AND THIS QUOTE IS JUST FROM ONE OF OUR STUDENTS.

WE OFTEN WE START OUT OUR COURSE WITH WHY? WHY ARE WE TEACHING THIS COURSE AND WHY OUR STUDENTS TAKING IT? AND SO THIS WAS A QUOTE FROM ONE OF OUR STUDENTS WHO HAD TURNED THIS INTO HIS TEACHER.

SO WE ARE DOING AN INQUIRY BASED MODEL, WHICH MEANS WE START WITH BIG GUIDING QUESTIONS.

WE PROVIDE RESOURCES FOR THE STUDENTS AND THEY DO THEIR OWN DISCOVERY OF WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE. IT IS TEAK SPACE, SO ALL OF OUR RESOURCES GO ALONGSIDE WITH THE STANDARDS.

[01:10:04]

BUT THE KIDS DO A LOT OF EXPLORING ALONGSIDE A TEACHER, TEACHING THEM THE SKILLS, THE PROPER RESEARCH SKILLS FOR FINDING THE ANSWER.

SO WE DO A GRADUAL RELEASE MODEL.

WE START OUT AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR.

IT'S VERY TEACHER GUIDE IT TO HELP THEM WITH THEIR SKILLS.

AND THEN AS WE GO THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, THE STUDENTS WILL BE COMING UP WITH THEIR OWN QUESTIONS AND THEIR OWN RESEARCH AROUND THE UMBRELLA OF THE THEMES.

SO THAT LEADS US TO OUR MEXICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES COURSE, WE WANTED TO DO ONE COURSE AT A TIME BECAUSE WE WANT IT TO GET IT RIGHT.

SO WE'RE VERY EXCITED TO TO LEARN FROM WHAT WE DID WITH AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES AND IMPLEMENT MEXICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES.

SO WE'LL START THAT WORK THIS YEAR.

JUST A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND ABOUT THE COURSE.

IT WAS ADOPTED IN 2018 BY THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION.

IT IS A ONE YEAR ELECTIVE COURSE UNDER THE SOCIAL STUDIES UMBRELLA.

SO THE STUDENTS, IT DOES FIT INTO THEIR MULTIDISCIPLINARY STUDIES OF ARTS AND HUMANITIES ENDORSEMENT, AND THIS COURSE WAS DEVELOPED BY HOUSTON ISD.

SO THEY WORKED REALLY HARD TO DEVELOP THOSE STANDARDS AND GET THEM APPROVED BY THE STATE, JUST LIKE THE DALLAS ISD DID THAT FOR AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES.

SO OUR NEXT STEPS WITH THIS COURSE.

AFTER THIS, WE PLAN TO DO ALL HANDS ON DECK COMMUNICATING TO CAMPUSES, TO OUR CAMPUS LEADERSHIP, TO OUR COUNSELORS AND TO OUR STUDENTS TO MAKE SURE THEY'RE AWARE OF THESE NEW COURSES. WE WILL PARTNER WITH CAMPUSES TO SELECT THE PROPER TEACHERS.

THEY HAVE TO BE HISTORY CERTIFIED OR SOCIAL STUDIES CERTIFIED, SO WE PARTNER WITH THEM TO MAKE SURE THAT WE GET THE RIGHT TEACHERS FOR THESE COURSES.

WE THEN START TO GATHER RESOURCES.

WE PARTNER WITH ALL OF OUR REGION CENTERS, WHO AND OTHER DISTRICTS WHO HAVE IMPLEMENTED THIS COURSE BEFORE US.

AND THEN WE WILL CONTINUE WITH THAT PROFESSIONAL LEARNING AND CURRICULUM WRITING, MUCH LIKE WE DID WITH THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES COURSE.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND YOU GUYS HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.

NO QUESTIONS, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

[11. Communication to and from the Board including public comments]

WE WILL NOW MOVE ON TO ITEM 11 COMMUNICATIONS TO AND FROM THE BOARD, INCLUDING PUBLIC COMMENTS. MR. SECRETARY, ANY COMMUNICATIONS? NO CORRESPONDENCE? OK. MR. CLASSE? WE NOW MOVE TO PUBLIC COMMENT SESSION OF OUR AGENDA, THE BOARD WELCOMES COMMENTS FROM CITIZENS WHO'VE COMPLETED PUBLIC COMMENT CARDS THIS EVENING, WHICH ARE ACCEPTED UNTIL 15 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE BEGINNING OF THE OPEN MEETING AND ARE NOT TRANSFERABLE TO OTHER SPEAKERS. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE INFORMATION SHARED IN PUBLIC COMMENT IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OF THE INFORMATION BY THE DISTRICT.

SHARED BY THE PRESENTER, AND SO EXCUSE ME, PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE INFORMATION SHARED IN PUBLIC COMMENT IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OF THE INFORMATION SHARED BY THE PRESENTER AND SOLELY PROVIDES THE OPINION OF THE INDIVIDUAL SPEAKER, NOT THE DISTRICT.

DURING THE PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD, COMMENTS SHOULD BE DIRECTED TO THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES, ONLY NOT OTHER ATTENDEES AND ONLY MADE ONCE YOU HAVE BEEN CALLED UPON TO SPEAK TO ENSURE THAT ALL SPEAKERS ARE TREATED EQUALLY AND HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME, THE PODIUM MICROPHONE WILL BE TURNED OFF AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE TIME FOR EVERY SPEAKER.

THE TOTAL TIME ALLOTTED FOR THE PUBLIC COMMENT SESSION IS 30 MINUTES.

EACH SPEAKER SHALL HAVE TWO MINUTES TO ADDRESS.

THE BOARD SPEAKERS WILL BE CALLED IN THE ORDER IN WHICH EACH INDIVIDUAL SIGNED UP TO SPEAK. MADAM PRESIDENT, WE HAVE 13 SPEAKERS SIGN UP THIS EVENING, SO EACH SPEAKER WILL HAVE TWO MINUTES.

OUR FIRST SPEAKER IS KELLY GREER, FOLLOWED BY JEFF JOHNSON.

GOOD EVENING, MRS. ARCHAMBAULT, DR.

WALDRIP AND ALL TRUSTEES.

MY NAME IS KELLY GREER, AND I'M THE FIELD PROGRAM MANAGER FOR THE ASSOCIATION OF TEXAS PROFESSIONAL EDUCATORS.

ON BEHALF OF THE OVER 460 ATPE MEMBERS IN FRISCO ISD, I OFFER THE FOLLOWING INPUT ON AGENDA ITEM 12D, THE DISTRICT'S PLAN FOR REMOTE LEARNING.

WE ASK THAT THE PLAN CLEARLY STATE TEACHERS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO BE ON DEMAND FOR REMOTE STUDENTS WHILE THEY TEACH IN PERSON STUDENTS ON CAMPUS, AS THIS WOULD VIOLATE TEXAS EDUCATION CODE 29.90911, WHICH BARS CONCURRENT SYNCHRONOUS AND ASYNCHRONOUS INSTRUCTION.

WE ALSO ASKED THAT THE PLAN CLEARLY DELINEATE HOW THE DISTRICT WILL ENSURE TEACHERS RECEIVE THE OPTION TO BE REASSIGNED TO AN ON CAMPUS POSITION BEFORE THE END OF FALL 2021, PER TEA GUIDANCE AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH TEC 29.9091K.

THE PROPOSED PLAN OUTLINES TRAINING FOR THE VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT.

WE ASKED AT THIS TRAINING SPECIFICALLY PREPARE TEACHERS TO MEET THE LEGAL REQUIREMENTS ASSOCIATED WITH SERVING STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES AND EMERGENT BILINGUAL LEARNERS.

WE ALSO ASK THAT THE MANY ADDITIONAL HOURS ASSOCIATED WITH PREPARATION FOR THE VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT BE COMPENSATED, AND TEACHERS HAVE BEEN CALLED UPON TO DO MORE AND MORE OFTEN WORKING 12 HOUR DAYS AND WEEKENDS TO FULFILL THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES.

[01:15:02]

THEY DESERVE TO BE COMPENSATED FOR THEIR TIME AND EFFORT.

THE PROPOSED PLAN DETAILS HOW STUDENT PROGRESS WILL BE MONITORED AND LOOSELY DEFINED STUDENT ENGAGEMENT.

WE ASK THAT TEACHERS ARE EXPLICITLY AND CONTINUOUSLY INVOLVED IN DETERMINING WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE. LASTLY, WE ASKED THAT THE DISTRICT ENSURE CLASS SIZES IN BOTH ENVIRONMENTS ARE APPROPRIATE FOR BOTH STUDENT AND TEACHER SUCCESS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION OF OUR INPUT.

ATPE IS AVAILABLE TO YOU AS A RESOURCE ON THIS AND ALL TOPICS OF CONCERN TO THE FRISCO ISD STAFF. THANK YOU.

JEFF JOHNSON, FOLLOWED BY SILPA LAST INITIAL M.

HELLO, GOOD EVENING, MY NAME IS JEFF JOHNSON.

RENEE, GOOD TO SEE YOU.

I'M A FRISCO PARENT, I HAVE A DAUGHTER WHO GRADUATED FROM WAKELAND A FEW YEARS AGO.

I'VE GOT A DAUGHTER WHO'S AT.

PUREFOY TODAY. SHE'S A FOURTH GRADER, AND SO I'M ACTUALLY PLEASED WITH THE REZONING OUTCOME. SO THIS IS LOOKING LIKE GOOD NEWS.

BUT THE REASON I'M HERE TONIGHT IS BECAUSE I THINK I REPRESENT A LOT OF CONSERVATIVE PARENTS WHO FEEL LIKE THEY MAYBE AREN'T BEING HEARD, AND I REALLY RESPECT YOUR POSITIONS, BUT I JUST WANTED TO TALK ABOUT THIS FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES.

I THINK YOUR PARENTS, TOO.

AND SO REZONING IS A HOT TOPIC, AND THERE'S A LOT OF OTHER HOT TOPICS.

AND SO WHAT I'M HOPING IS THAT IN THE END, THERE'S AN OPPORTUNITY TO TALK ABOUT THESE THINGS IN AN OPEN FORUM.

AND I'VE ONLY BEEN TO TWO OF THESE NOW, SO I'M A ROOKIE.

I'M PLEASED TO GET TWO MINUTES.

I WAS EXPECTING 60 SECONDS, BUT IT'S A REALLY COMPLEX WORLD RIGHT NOW.

I THINK THERE'S A LOT OF EMOTION.

AND SO I THINK A LOT OF PARENTS JUST WANT TO BE ABLE TO SHARE WHAT THEY'RE SEEING AND HEARING AND THINKING.

AND SO THAT MEETING THAT WE HAD LAST WEEK, I THOUGHT IT WAS A WORTHY EXCHANGE.

I THOUGHT THAT, YOU KNOW, THE INSIDE SCOOP MEETING WAS A GOOD IDEA.

AND THEN WHEN WE GOT THERE, YOU KNOW, THE AGENDA WAS KIND OF TAKEN OVER BY YOUR CONTENT.

AND SO MY HOPE IS THAT IN THE FUTURE THAT YOU'RE JUST WILLING AND ABLE TO SAY WE MIGHT HAVE OUR OWN AGENDA, BUT WE WANT TO HEAR WHAT THE PARENTS THINK AND JUST GIVE US A CHANCE TO JUST SHARE QUESTIONS WITH YOU.

I THINK YOU MIGHT FIND THAT THE DECORUM WILL BE THERE.

PEOPLE WANT TO BE POLITE.

THEY WANT TO BE PROFESSIONAL.

BUT THEY ALSO JUST WANT TO KNOW THAT THERE'S AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE WHAT THEY SEE IN OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY THAT SEEM TO BE KIND OF TRICKLING INTO TEXAS.

AND THAT'S DIFFERENT FOR US.

YOU KNOW, TEXAS IS A DIFFERENT STATE.

YOU KNOW, PEOPLE ARE HERE BECAUSE WE LOVE INDEPENDENCE AND FREEDOM AND LIBERTY, AND THERE SEEMS TO BE AN AGENDA.

I SEE MY LIGHT. THANK YOU.

SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

SILPA, FOLLOWED BY JULIE HARVILLE.

I WASN'T EXPECTING TWO MINUTES, SO I CAME PREPARED WITH THE ONE MINUTE SPEECH, BUT OK, WE'LL KEEP IT SHORT. MEMBERS OF SCHOOL BOARD, I'M HERE TO TALK ABOUT SCHOOL TRANSFER.

THIS YEAR, ONLY SIX OF THE 17 MIDDLE SCHOOLS WERE AVAILABLE FOR SCHOOL TRANSFER APPLICANTS. THE CUTOFF IS 90 PERCENT OF CAPACITY, OR NINE HUNDRED STUDENTS.

THIS IS RESTRICTIVE WHEN MOST NEIGHBORHOODS ARE FULLY BUILT OUT WITH LITTLE CHANCE OF NEW STUDENT IN FLUX.

MIDDLE SCHOOLS LIMIT ENROLLMENT TO 1100 BEFORE STUDENTS ARE TURNED TO A DIFFERENT SCHOOL.

THAT MEANS WE ARE LEAVING 100 TO 200 SPOTS FOR NEW STUDENTS AT THE COST OF EXISTING STUDENTS WHO WISH FOR THE SCHOOL TRANSFER DUE TO VARIOUS REASONS.

SCHOOLS OUTSIDE OF THE SIX OFFERED FOR TRANSFER HAVE AN ENROLLMENT BETWEEN 920 AND 1010 STUDENTS. SB 15 FUNDS WILL BE USED TO OPEN A VIRTUAL LEARNING OPTION.

THAT'S GREAT, BUT MIDDLE SCHOOLS SHOULD OPEN UP SPOTS LEFT BY VIRTUAL LEARNERS TO IN-PERSON LEARNERS.

ADDITIONALLY, THE CUTOFF SHOULD BE INCREASED TO 97 OR 98 PERCENT TO ALLOW PARENTS AND IN-PERSON STUDENTS TO CHOOSE AN ENVIRONMENT THAT WOULD HELP THEM GROW AND THRIVE WITHIN FISD. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU. JULIA HARVILLE, FOLLOWED BY MATTHEW VARSALI.

GOOD EVENING, I'M JULIE HARVILLE.

I'M A WAKELAND BAND PARENT, VERY PROUD WAKELAND BAND PARENT AND A RETIRED FISD TEACHER.

I'VE ACTUALLY WORKED WITH MANY OF YOU HERE IN THE ROOM OR I'VE TAUGHT YOUR CHILDREN AT SOME POINT. I'D LIKE TO SPEAK ON THE REZONING COMMUNICATION THAT WE'VE EXPERIENCED WITHIN FRISCO ISD.

MANY PARENTS HAVE BEEN REALLY WORRIED FOR WEEKS ABOUT THE REZONING PROCESS AND HOW IT

[01:20:05]

WILL AFFECT THEIR CHILDREN, THEIR FAMILIES AND THEIR COMMUNITIES.

WHEN PARENTS RECENTLY REACTED WITH CONCERN REGARDING DISTRICT PUBLICIZED REZONING COMMUNICATION ON THE DISTRICT WEBSITE, A DISTRICT REPRESENTATIVE RESPONDED WITH THE USE OF THE TERM RUMOR MILL.

AND THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THE TERM RUMOR MILL HAS BEEN USED BY THIS ADMINISTRATION AND THIS BOARD AND AS AN ENGLISH TEACHER, I'VE SEEN SEVERAL SYNONYMS SIMILAR TO RUMOR MILL. TRANSPARENCY IS DESPERATELY SOUGHT BY PARENTS FOR THIS AND MANY DISTRICT DECISIONS THAT AFFECT OUR CHILDREN WHEN THE DISTRICT DISMISSES CONCERNS RAISED BY PARENTS ON ISSUES THAT AFFECT THEIR CHILDREN.

THOSE PARENTS ARE CONTACTING FAMILIES FOR FRISCO PAC.

WE'RE HEARING FROM THEM, WE'RE HEARING FROM TEACHERS AND WE'RE HEARING FROM STUDENTS WHO FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE LOST THEIR VOICE.

WITH FRISCO ISD, OUR CHILDREN, OUR FAMILIES AND OUR TAXPAYERS DESERVE BETTER AND WE'RE WATCHING.

MATTHEW VARSALI, FOLLOWED BY HEIDI STONE.

MATTHEW? WELL, HEIDI STONE ? GOOD EVENING, BOARD, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.

MY MOM SERVED ON A SCHOOL BOARD WHILE I WAS GROWING UP, SO I KNOW THE HOURS THIS TAKES.

THANK YOU. THIS SUMMER, MY DAUGHTER EXPLAINED TO ME WHY SHE CAN'T CELEBRATE INDEPENDENCE DAY, AND IT'S BECAUSE SHE LEARNED THE HISTORY OF JAMESTOWN AND 1619 IN HER CLASSROOM.

THE TEACHER MADE CLAIMS THAT WE, THE ADULTS IN THE ROOM, ARE MISINFORMED WITH THE HISTORY WE LEARNED, AND THAT'S WHY WE CAN CELEBRATE INDEPENDENCE DAY.

BUT THEY WERE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO GET THEIR REAL EDUCATION, AND SO SHE LEARNED THAT IN FRISCO ISD, THAT HAS REAL LIFE IMPLICATIONS FOR HER AND HER CLASSMATES.

MY CALL TO YOU IS TO TO DO THE HARD RIGHT THING WHILE YOU'RE SERVING THEM AND SERVE THESE STUDENTS WITH TRUTH IN A SPIRIT OF LOVE.

THE TRUTH HAS THE POWER TO END CONFUSION, OPPRESSION AND MILITANT IDEOLOGY.

YOU HAVE FAMILIES THAT HAVE YOUR BACK IF YOU HONOR THE TRUTH, WHICH IS A SOLID FOUNDATION . WOKE WILL COST US ALL.

AND PEOPLE ARE MOVING HERE TO FRISCO FOR FRISCO, NOT FOR WOKE.

WHOEVER IS ASKING YOU TO BRING THAT TO FRISCO, WE DON'T WANT OR NEED THEIR ATTABOYS OR THEIR MONEY. THANK YOU.

BY THE WAY, TO ANYBODY ON THE BOARD WHO IS A PARENT OR A TAXPAYER IN FRISCO, IF YOU SEE THIS, CALL YOUR ADMINISTRATORS BECAUSE THEY'RE VERY PROFESSIONAL AND THEY'LL HELP YOU TAKE CARE OF IT. THANK YOU.

AND THEN FOLLOWED BY STEPHANIE ELAM.

GOOD EVENING, ZACH BOJAKIAN IN FRISCO, TEXAS.

LET'S MAKE EDUCATION GREAT AGAIN.

LET'S TEACH OUR CHILDREN THE GREATNESS OF AMERICAN HISTORY AND THE MISTAKES IT'S MADE AND HOW WE LEARN FROM THEM.

REGARDING THE PILOT PROGRAM COMBINING ADVANCED WITH LEVEL CLASSES, I SAY LET THE STUDENTS THAT ARE ABLE TO EXCEL ACADEMICALLY, FLOURISH AND FOCUS ON THE OTHER STUDENTS AND THEIR SPECIFIC NEEDS.

PLEASE KEEP RACIAL SEGREGATION CURRICULUM TEACHING OUT OF OUR SCHOOLS.

WE ARE PEOPLE OF ONE AMERICA, ONE TEXAS.

CHILDREN, GENERALLY AND ESPECIALLY MY KIDS DO NOT SEE HUMAN COLOR.

THEY SEE PEOPLE THAT ARE EITHER NICE OR THEY'RE NOT NICE.

I WANT TO I WANT TO END OFF BY THANKING YOU ALL FOR NOT SLOW MASK SUFFOCATE OUR CHILDREN.

OK. SIGNED, CARING, LOVING PARENT AND CONCERNED COMMUNITY

[01:25:05]

MEMBER, NOT A DOMESTIC TERRORIST.

STEPHANIE ALLAD, FOLLOWED BY KELLY KARTHICK.

GOOD EVENING, MY NAME IS STEPHANIE ALLAD, I'M HERE TONIGHT TO REQUEST THAT THE BOARD RECONSIDER THE RECENT RULE CHANGE, LIMITING SPEAKERS TO ONE MINUTE DURING PUBLIC COMMENTS. IT IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO COMMUNICATE ANYTHING OF SUBSTANCE IN 60 SECONDS TIME. I'VE BEEN ATTENDING BOARD MEETINGS REGULARLY SINCE APRIL OF THIS YEAR.

IT SEEMS TO ME THAT AS A NUMBER OF PARENTS AND CONCERNED CITIZENS SPEAKING OUT HAS INCREASED BOTH IN FREQUENCY AND EFFECTIVENESS.

THE BOARD'S WILLINGNESS TO LISTEN TO PUBLIC COMMENTS HAS DECREASED, AS EVIDENCED BY THE FACT THAT THE SPEAKING TIME WAS LIMITED IN JUNE.

THE BOARD CLEARLY HAS THE AUTHORITY TO MAKE THIS DECISION, BUT JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO SO DOESN'T MAKE IT THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

YOU CAN RESTRICT OUR SPEAKING TIME TO THE BARE MINIMUM ALLOWED BY LAW.

YOU CAN CUT THE MICROPHONE WHEN YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT SOMEONE IS SAYING AND YOU CAN'T HAVE THE POLICE REMOVE PEOPLE FROM THE BUILDING AT YOUR DISCRETION.

YOU MAY NOT LIKE WHAT SOME OF THE COMMUNITY VOICES ARE SAYING, BUT EACH OF THOSE VOICES DESERVE TO BE HEARD BY OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES.

AGAIN, I'M FORMALLY REQUESTING THAT THE BOARD REINSTATE THE OLD RULE WHERE IT'S TWO MINUTES MINIMUM, REGARDLESS OF HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE SPEAKING.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, KELLY KARTHICK, FOLLOWED BY LISA NORMAN.

GOOD EVENING, TRUSTEES AND SUPERINTENDENT, GUESS WHAT? COVID IS STILL HERE, AND YES, WE'RE ALL TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT IT.

WE'RE COVID EXHAUSTED.

COVID IS SO LAST YEAR, THE NEW FASHION IS DELTA, AND DELTA IS TWO TIMES MORE CONTAGIOUS THAN COVID. UNFORTUNATELY, IF YOU GET DELTA, THE ILLNESS AND RECOVERY TIME IS MORE SERIOUS AND IT'S LONGER.

LAST YEAR, DECENT ARRANGEMENTS WERE MADE TO SAFEGUARD OUR CHILDREN.

THIS YEAR, WITH DANGEROUS DELTA, THERE'S NOTHING HAPPENING.

I KNOW YOU GUYS TALKED ABOUT 12.9 PERCENT OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT BEING AT THE POVERTY LEVEL, BUT IN COLLIN COUNTY, 20 PERCENT OF THE CHILDREN ARE LIVING WITH FOOD INSECURITY.

AND SO IF THESE CHILDREN CAN'T AFFORD FOOD, HOW COULD THEY AFFORD A MASK IF THEY WANTED TO WEAR ONE? I NOTICED THAT MASKS ARE NOT OFFERED, LIKE WHEN THE STUDENTS WALK IN THE FRONT DOORS OF THE SCHOOL.

THEY'RE LOCATED IN ODD PLACES LIKE THE COUNSELING OFFICE.

AND I'M LIKE, HOW IS THAT HELPFUL? MUTATIONS ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO MUTATE, AND UNTIL WE COME TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY AND MASK UP, THIS EPIDEMIC IS NEVER GOING TO GO AWAY.

WE'VE GOT 70000 DEATHS IN TEXAS ALONE.

SO WITH A SLOWDOWN LIKE THAT, NEW CASES MATTER.

IN THIS SMALL VICTORY, I SURE HOPE THAT WE HAVEN'T BECOME THAT RECKLESS.

WE STILL HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO.

I JUST PULLED A COUPLE OF THINGS TODAY FROM THE CDC, AND IT WAS LIKE SAYING ABOUT MASKS.

IT'S SAYING, GIVEN WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE DELTA VARIANT, VACCINE EFFECTIVENESS AND CURRENT VACCINE COVERAGE, LAYERED PREVENTION STRATEGIES, INCLUDING WEARING MASKS, ARE NEEDED TO REDUCE THE TRANSMISSION OF THIS VARIANT.

AND THE SECOND THING I PULLED THAT I JUST WANTED TO SHARE QUICKLY WAS THAT, ACCORDING TO HOLD ON ONE SECOND, I'M SORRY SINCE I HAVE EXTRA TIME, ACCORDING TO IT'S NOT THE CDC.

IT WAS I'M SO SORRY AND I JUST LOST MY NOTE.

BUT ANYWAY, IT WAS TALKING ABOUT HOW THE DELTA VARIANT IS 235 FIVE PERCENT A HIGHER RISK OF ICU ADMISSION.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

LISA NORMAN, FOLLOWED BY JUSTIN HARVILLE.

GOOD EVENING, MY NAME IS LISA NORMAN, I'M AN FISD PARENT AND DISTRICT FOUR COUNCIL MEMBER FOR THE TOWN OF LITTLE ELM.

FIRST OF ALL, I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.

AS AN ELECTED OFFICIAL MYSELF, I KNOW FIRSTHAND THE CHALLENGES AND DIFFICULT DECISIONS THAT WE HAVE FACED OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF YEARS AS WE VOLUNTEERED TO SERVE OUR COMMUNITY. THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT ONE OF THE DIFFICULT DECISIONS THAT YOU ARE CURRENTLY FACING IS THAT OF THE NEW ATTENDANCE BOUNDARIES.

LIKE OTHER CHALLENGING SUBJECTS, THE ISSUE WILL LIKELY BE MET WITH CONCERN AND VARIOUS OPINIONS FROM THOSE WHO WILL BE AFFECTED.

A LARGE PART OF MY DISTRICT IS LOCATED WITHIN FISD, AND MANY DISTRICT FOUR RESIDENTS WILL POTENTIALLY BE AFFECTED BY ATTENDANCE BOUNDARIES.

SEVERAL CONSTITUENTS HAVE REACHED OUT TO ME TO EXPRESS CONCERN ABOUT POTENTIAL CHANGES WHILE I LET THEM KNOW THAT THE ISD ATTENDANCE BOUNDARY MODIFICATIONS ARE INDEPENDENT OF ANY TOWN COUNCIL ACTION.

I ALSO TOLD THEM THAT I WOULD SPEAK ON THEIR BEHALF, HELP PASSING ALONG INFORMATION AND

[01:30:02]

ENSURE THAT THEY KNOW HOW TO MAKE THEIR VOICES HEARD.

I APPRECIATE THE TIME THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN ME THIS EVENING.

I WANT TO ESPECIALLY THANK THE BOARD PRESIDENT RENE ARCHAMBAULT, WHO HAS BEEN DISCUSSING THE ISSUE WITH ME AND ANSWERING MY QUESTIONS.

COLLABORATION WITH THE FISD IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME AND I LOOK FORWARD TO THE OPPORTUNITIES TO WORK WITH YOU.

PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO REACH OUT IF I CAN BE A RESOURCE TO PROVIDE ANY ASSISTANCE.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO THE TOWN OF LITTLE ELM.

JUSTIN HARVILLE, FOLLOWED BY DEBORAH THORNE.

HI, MY NAME IS JUSTIN HARVILLE.

AS I SAID AT THE LAST BOARD MEETING, ALLOWING A MAXIMUM OF ONLY TWO MINUTES FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS PUTS FRISCO ISD DEAD LAST AMONG DFW AREA DISTRICTS.

I ASK THIS BOARD TO AGAIN START BEING A LEADER AMONG LOCAL DISTRICTS AND PUT THEM ITEM ON THE AGENDA FOR NOVEMBER MEETING TO TRANSPARENTLY DISCUSS AND VOTE ON RAISING THE LIMIT FOR PUBLIC COMMENT TO FIVE MINUTES.

GRANT 30 MINUTES FOR PUBLIC COMMENT ON AGENDA ITEMS AND THEN HAVE A SECOND OPEN ENDED PUBLIC COMMENT SESSION AT THE END OF EACH MEETING.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. THANK YOU, DEBORAH THORNE, FOLLOWED BY VICTORIA MANASSAS, WHO WILL BE OUR FINAL SPEAKER.

GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS DEBORAH THORNE.

THE THE FISD HIGH SCHOOL LIBRARIES ARE INCLUDING SEVERAL LBGTQ THEMED BOOKS SUCH AS KINGS, QUEENS AND IN BETWEENS.

THE MAIN CHARACTER IS NEEMA IS BORED WITH HER SECULAR COMMUNITY, IN LOVE WITH HER STRAIGHT GIRLFRIEND AND DEALING WITH HER MOTHER'S ABANDONMENT.

SHE JOINS THE DRAG QUEEN BAR SCENE.

WE ARE WITNESSING THE METHODICAL AND WELL-PLANNED INDOCTRINATION OF OUR YOUTH.

LGBTQ IS NO LONGER JUST AN AFTER SCHOOL CLUB.

IT'S IN LIBRARIES, CLASSROOMS AND THROUGHOUT THE HIGH SCHOOL CULTURE.

TRADITIONAL VALUES ARE NOW CONSIDERED BORING AND MUNDANE.

WHILE OUR KIDS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE GETTING COMPETITIVE EDUCATION, THEY ARE DISTRACTED BY GENDER IDEOLOGY.

IT BEGINS WITH GENDER PREFERENCES, AND THEN IT BECOMES THE CULTURE NORM TO BE SEXUAL AT A VERY YOUNG AGE, EXPERIMENTING WITH DRAG CULTURE AND GAY BARS.

FRISCO ISD MUST DO BETTER FOR OUR CHILDREN.

INSTEAD OF THIS KIND OF GENDER IDEOLOGY BOOK, THERE SHOULD BE FOCUS ON ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE. OTHER COUNTRIES ARE RISING WAY ABOVE US, LIKE SINGAPORE, HONG KONG AND JAPAN.

THEY DO NOT DISTRACT THEIR CHILDREN.

THEIR EDUCATION IS APPROPRIATE BOOKS.

OUR CHILDREN'S MATH LEVELS NOW RANK 39TH IN THE WORLD.

WE ARE BEING PLAYED AND OUR CHILDREN ARE BEING DISTRACTED AND DUMBED DOWN.

TIME TO WAKE UP. THIS IS NONSENSE.

THANK YOU.

VICTORIA MANASSAS? YES. THANK YOU, AND THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING THAT YOU ALL DO, AND KEEPING THE BEST FOR LAST HERE IN MY HAND IS A LETTER.

IT'S A JOC RECOMMENDATION SENT TO DR.

FOUCHE AND IT'S FROM THE STAND TECH ARCHITECTURE COMPANY, AND THIS LETTER DISCUSSES THE MEMORIAL STADIUM FIELD HOUSE REMODEL PROJECT.

IT STATES THIS PROJECT CONSISTS OF AN INTERIOR REMODEL OF EXISTING OFFICE SPACE INTO NEW OFFICE SPACES FOR USE BY CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL.

THERE'S TWO QUESTIONS HERE ONE.

WHAT IS THE EXACT USE FOR THE FIELD HOUSE? AND THEN TWO, WHY IS CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL MOVING INTO THE FIELD HOUSE? I LEAVE YOU WITH THAT.

THANK YOU. BOARD WILL NOW MOVE ON TO ACTION

[12.A. Consider and act on approval of minutes from September 13 regular meeting and September 23 special meeting]

ITEMS 12 A CONSIDER AN ACT ON APPROVAL OF MINUTES FROM SEPTEMBER 13TH REGULAR MEETING AND SEPTEMBER 23RD SPECIAL MEETING.

IF THERE ARE NO QUESTIONS, I'LL LOOK FOR A MOTION? MOVE TO APPROVE THE MINUTES HAS PRESENTED.

IT IS FOR 105 THOUSAND DOLLARS.

THIS IS TO ADD A POSITION WITHIN OUR LEGAL AFFAIRS DEPARTMENT TO HELP WITH INVESTIGATIONS AND COMPLAINT RESOLUTIONS.

THE POSITION WILL KIND OF STREAMLINE AND CONSOLIDATE SOME OF THE FUNCTIONS THAT ARE BEING

[01:35:01]

HANDLED BY OUR CAMPUSES RIGHT NOW.

ANY QUESTIONS? THANK YOU.

BOARD, ANY QUESTIONS? IF NOT, I'LL CALL FOR A MOTION.

I MOVE TO APPROVE THE BUDGET TRANSFERS OF AMENDMENTS FOR THE 2021-2022 BUDGET, AS PRESENTED. SECOND.

MOTION BY MR. RUDY, SECOND BY MS. DAVIS. ALL IN FAVOR? AYE. MOTION PASSES 7-0.

[12.C. Consider and act on recommended members of the District Advisory Council and the Legislative Leadership Committee]

ITEM 12C, CONSIDER AN ACT ON RECOMMENDED MEMBERS OF THE DISTRICT ADVISORY COUNCIL AND THE LEGISLATIVE LEADERSHIP COMMITTEE.

MR. STOCKTON? THANK YOU. I WANT TO JUST BRIEFLY TOUCH ON A COUPLE OF THINGS.

ONE IS IS A CHANGE THAT WE'VE MADE WITH DISTRICT COMMITTEES THIS YEAR, AND THEN I'M GOING TO BRIEFLY TALK ABOUT KIND OF THE SELECTION PROCESS FOR THIS.

SO AN ACRONYM THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE PROBABLY HEARD IS LRPC OR LONG RANGE PLANNING COMMITTEE. THIS IS A COMMITTEE THAT WAS SET UP SEVERAL YEARS AGO TO KIND OF GO THROUGH SOME DISCRETE PROJECTS FOR US.

THEY WORKED ON PRIORITIES BASED BUDGETING.

THEY'VE WORKED ON PREVIOUS FUND, OVERSIGHT PROJECTS LIKE THAT.

THEY WORK ON OUR COMMUNITY BASED ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEM.

AND SO THAT WAS A COMMITTEE THAT WAS WORKING TO PROVIDE FEEDBACK TO THE DISTRICT ON KIND OF SOME DISCRETE PROJECTS.

BUT AS EACH OF THOSE PROJECTS ENDED, WE WERE LOOKING AT, OK, WHAT DO WE DO WITH THIS COMMITTEE NEXT? SO AS WE WORKED TO DETERMINE HOW DO WE CONTINUE TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE CONTINUAL ENGAGEMENT FROM THE COMMUNITY TO PROVIDE FEEDBACK TO US TO GET INFORMATION FROM US, HOW CAN WE KIND OF BETTER UTILIZE THAT LRPC STRUCTURE FOR THAT PURPOSE, AND SO AS WE WERE BEGINNING THE SCHOOL YEAR PREPARING TO MAKE SELECTIONS FOR SOME OF OUR OTHER DISTRICT COMMITTEES, WE DECIDED TO RELAUNCH THE LONG-RANGE PLANNING COMMITTEE AS THE DISTRICT ADVISORY COUNCIL.

SO THIS IS REPLACING THE LONG RANGE PLANNING COMMITTEE.

THIS COUNCIL WILL BE MADE UP OF FIVE STANDING COMMITTEES THAT WILL DEAL WITH VARIOUS TOPICS, AND THOSE WILL JUST BE ONGOING COMMITTEES THAT WILL BE THERE ALL YEAR.

THAT'LL BE CHAIRED BY DIFFERENT DISTRICT ADMINISTRATORS WHO WILL BE ABLE TO BRING INFORMATION TO THIS COMMITTEE SO THAT THEY HAVE CAN GET FEEDBACK ON THOSE DIFFERENT TOPICS AND PROVIDE THAT INFORMATION TO THOSE COMMITTEE MEMBERS AS WELL.

THIS WILL ALSO SERVE AS A STRUCTURE FOR US WHEN WE DO HAVE ONE OFF PROJECTS THAT WE NEED TO ADDRESS. WE CAN BRING IN KIND OF SELECT COMMITTEES OR ONE TIME COMMITTEES ON THOSE SPECIFIC PROJECTS FROM THIS LARGE GROUP THAT WE ARE PUTTING TOGETHER.

SO WE KEPT THE STRUCTURE OF THE LRPC IN TERMS OF THE OVERALL MEMBERSHIP THE SAME FOR THE DISTRICT ADVISORY COUNCIL.

SO THERE ARE 146 MEMBERS THAT INCORPORATES 73 STAFF MEMBERS, ONE FROM EVERY CAMPUS AND THEN 73 NON STAFF MEMBERS.

AND I SAY NON STAFF MEMBERS BECAUSE WE ACTUALLY DO HAVE SOME, WE HAVE MOSTLY PARENTS IN THAT GROUP, BUT WE DO HAVE SOME NON PARENT COMMUNITY MEMBERS AS WELL, WHICH WAS A VOICE WE FELT LIKE WAS AN IMPORTANT VOICE TO HAVE ON THAT GROUP.

THE WAY THAT WE DO OUR COMMITTEE SELECTIONS NOW, WE CHANGE THIS.

I THINK LAST YEAR WAS OUR FIRST YEAR AND IT KIND OF IT DIDN'T REALLY KIND OF FULLY ROLL OUT BECAUSE OF COVID AND THINGS WERE A LITTLE BIT LESS.

WE DIDN'T DO AS MUCH LAST YEAR WITH SOME OF THESE COMMITTEES.

SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE CHANGED IS WE CREATED A UNIVERSAL APPLICATION FOR FOUR COMMUNITY MEMBERS TO FILL OUT TO GET ON ONE OF OUR ALL DISTRICT COMMITTEES, AND WE FELT LIKE THAT WOULD BE AN EASIER WAY FOR PEOPLE TO APPLY.

LET US KNOW THEY WERE INTERESTED, GIVE THEM THE OPPORTUNITY TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ONCE AND THEN INDICATE THEIR PREFERENCES, THOSE KINDS OF THINGS.

AND SO THAT CREATED A POOL FOR US THAT WE WERE THEN ABLE TO PULL FROM.

AND SO THE DISTRICT ADVISORY COUNCIL, THE LEGISLATIVE LEADERSHIP COMMITTEE, THE SAFETY AND SECURITY COMMITTEE, THE SCHOOL HEALTH ADVISORY COUNCIL AND THE DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT TEAM ALL PULL PEOPLE FROM THIS COMMITTEE, AND THEN GOING FORWARD, THE DISTRICT OF INNOVATION COMMITTEE WILL ALSO PULL OUT OF THIS APPLICANT POOL.

DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT TEAM, THEY HAVE REALLY SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS AND SELECTION THAT'S IT'S CREATED BY IT'S ACTUALLY A REQUIREMENT IN TEXAS LAW, SO THERE'S A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT, BUT THEY DO USE THIS POOL FOR SOME OF THAT.

SO AS WE WERE PREPARING THIS YEAR, BASICALLY WHAT HAPPENS IS WE HAVE A DEADLINE FOR THE APPLICATION. WE ACTUALLY EXTEND IT A LITTLE BIT THIS YEAR.

IT WAS SEPTEMBER 7TH.

AND SO WE SAY IF YOU WANT TO BE CONSIDERED FOR ONE OF THESE COMMITTEES THAT WE'RE GETTING READY TO APPOINT, YOU NEED TO GO AHEAD AND FILL OUT THE APPLICATION SO THAT WE'VE GOT YOU IN THE POOL. AND THEN ESSENTIALLY, WE GO THROUGH A STRUCTURE WHERE DIFFERENT COMMITTEES, DEPENDING ON HOW MANY PEOPLE THEY HAVE ON THEIR COMMITTEES, KIND OF MAKE THEIR SELECTIONS BASED ON THE APPLICATIONS THAT PEOPLE HAVE SUBMITTED, WHETHER IT'S THEIR QUESTIONS THAT THEY'VE ANSWERED, WHAT THEY'VE INDICATED AS THEIR PREFERENCES.

WE GET SOME PEOPLE WHO WILL PUT IN THERE AND THEY'LL SAY, I'M ONE OUT OF FIVE, I'M A FIVE ON THIS ONE COMMITTEE AND I'M ON ONE ON EVERYTHING ELSE.

SO THEY'RE NOT PROBABLY GOING TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THOSE OTHER COMMITTEES, RIGHT? SO WE GO THROUGH THAT PROCESS FIRST.

WE HAVE OUR SAFETY AND SECURITY COMMITTEE, WHICH HAS TWO PARENTS ON IT SO THAT THEY PICK FROM THERE. WE HAVE OUR SCHOOL HEALTH ADVISORY COUNCIL, WHICH PULLS FROM THERE.

AND THEN WE MOVED INTO THE DISTRICT ADVISORY COMMITTEE AND LLC, WHICH ARE OUR TWO LARGEST COMMITTEES. THE LEGISLATIVE LEADERSHIP COMMITTEE IS NOW 110 PEOPLE.

[01:40:01]

WE EXPANDED THIS AFTER LAST YEAR, AND THAT'S MADE UP OF A COMBINATION OF DIFFERENT COMMUNITY MEMBERS AND ALSO STAFF.

WE PULL ALL OF OUR STAFF OUT OF THIS APPLICATION AS WELL.

SO STAFF THAT WANT TO BE ON THESE ISSUE COMMITTEES, THEY GO IN AND THEY ALSO FILL OUT THIS APPLICATION AND THAT'S HOW THEY GET ON THERE.

AND THEN ONCE WE HAVE THAT APPLICANT POOL, BASICALLY THE DIFFERENT CHAIRS OF THE COMMITTEES SIT ON A SIT TOGETHER.

I WAS GOING TO SAY THEY SIT ON A COMMITTEE.

IT'S NOT QUITE THAT FORMAL, BUT SIT TOGETHER TO ESSENTIALLY GO THROUGH ALL OF THE APPLICATIONS. WE READ ALL OF THE DIFFERENT APPLICATIONS TO MAKE SELECTIONS BASED ON WHAT PEOPLE'S PREFERENCES ARE, WHAT THEIR ANSWERS ARE.

AND THEN ANOTHER REALLY IMPORTANT THING IS IS WHAT IS THEIR? WHERE DO THEY LIVE? WHAT IS THEIR FEEDER PATTERN? THAT'S ACTUALLY WE ACTUALLY ASK IN THE IN THE APPLICATION, WHAT HIGH SCHOOL IS YOUR HOME ZONED FOR? BECAUSE WE FEEL LIKE IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE REPRESENTATION FROM ACROSS THE DISTRICT, NOT ALL IN ONE SPECIFIC AREA.

AND SO YOU'LL ACTUALLY SEE IN THE ATTACHMENT FOR THIS AGENDA ITEM EVERY IT'S ACTUALLY GOT THEM LISTED BY FEEDER PATTERN.

AND THAT'S TO MAKE SURE THAT WE WE SPLIT THEM OUT.

SO ONCE WE MAKE THAT SELECTION, STAFF MEMBERS ARE SELECTED BY THE STAFF AND BY ADMINISTRATION. SO THEY'RE PUT ON THERE BASED ON THE ADMINISTRATION SELECTIONS.

BUT FOR NON STAFF MEMBERS, WE BRING THOSE SELECTIONS TO ALL AS RECOMMENDATIONS FOR YOUR APPROVAL. AND SO WE HAVE SEVENTY THREE NON STAFF MEMBERS FOR THE DISTRICT ADVISORY COUNCIL FOR YOUR APPROVAL ON THAT LIST.

AND THEN WE ALSO HAVE 11 FOR THE LEGISLATIVE LEADERSHIP COMMITTEE.

ONE THING ABOUT THE LEGISLATIVE LEADERSHIP COMMITTEE THAT I THINK IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE IS THAT WE HAVE WE HAVE 10 DIFFERENT STAKEHOLDER GROUPS IN THAT AND EACH STAKEHOLDER GROUP HAS 11 PEOPLE.

SO WE HAVE THE ELEVEN THAT YOU ALL APPROVE THAT ARE THROUGH THIS APPLICATION PROCESS, BUT WE HAVE OTHER COMMUNITY MEMBERS ON THERE AS WELL.

THE FRISCO CHAMBER OF COMMERCE ACTUALLY GETS TO A POINT ELEVEN PEOPLE.

OUR PTA MEMBERS GET TO A POINT SIX AND OUR FEF BOARD GETS TO A POINT FIVE.

WE ALSO HAVE 11 STUDENTS ON THAT COMMITTEE, WHICH ARE SELECTED BASED ON THEIR APPLICATION, OR THEY MAY COME FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT STUDENT ADVISORY COUNCIL OR JUST BY RECOMMENDATION OF THEIR PRINCIPAL.

AND THEN WE HAVE ALL OF OUR STAFF MEMBERS AS WELL.

SO THAT'S I WANT TO MAKE SURE IT'S CLEAR THAT THERE'S NOT JUST 11 NON STAFF MEMBERS ON THAT LEGISLATIVE LEADERSHIP COMMITTEE.

THAT'S JUST ONE OF THE OF THE COMMUNITY MEMBERS, STAKEHOLDER GROUPS, AND THAT'S THE ONE THAT WE BRING TO YOU ALL.

THE OTHER ONLY OTHER THING I'LL NOTE IS THAT WE WORKED REALLY HARD TO NOT PUT SOMEBODY ON MORE THAN ONE COMMITTEE.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE GETTING AS BROAD A RANGE OF INPUT AS WE CAN.

AND SO WE WE DID NOT PUT SOMEBODY ON MORE THAN ONE COMMITTEE.

AND BUT THAT SAID, WE ALSO HAD A GREAT AMOUNT OF INTEREST AND HAD TOO MANY PEOPLE.

WE DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH SPOTS FOR EVERY PERSON THAT APPLIED.

SO THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO WERE NOT SELECTED TO BE RECOMMENDED TO YOU ALL TONIGHT, AND THOSE PEOPLE ACTUALLY WILL REMAIN IN OUR POOL THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

WE DO HAVE VACANCIES THAT COME UP ON THESE COMMITTEES.

PEOPLE SAY THEY WANT TO BE ON IT, THEY DECIDE TO BE ON IT AND THEN THINGS JUST COME UP AND GET IN THE WAY AND THEY'RE NOT ABLE TO ATTEND.

WE ACTUALLY HAVE SOME ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS FOR BOTH LLC AND THE DAC.

AND SO AS WE WERE HAVING VACANCIES AND NEEDING TO FILL PEOPLE IN, WE WILL GO BACK TO THAT APPLICANT POOL AGAIN THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

SO I THINK THAT'S IT.

THE ONLY OTHER THING I MENTIONED ON DAC, THAT'S A ONE YEAR TERM, AND YOU CAN SERVE THREE CONSECUTIVE TERMS BEFORE YOU HAVE TO ROLL OFF FOR AT LEAST A YEAR.

THAT'S NOT NECESSARILY A GUARANTEE, BUT YOU HAVE TO.

YOU CAN SERVE UP TO THREE CONSECUTIVE TERMS. THE LLC IS A TWO YEAR TERM BECAUSE IT'S BASED ON THE LEGISLATIVE CYCLE, AND THERE AREN'T TERM LIMITS ON THAT ONE.

SO THEY COULD SERVE AGAIN IF THEY REAPPLY.

I WILL SAY WE REPLACED MOST OF OUR LIVES.

WE HAD A GREAT LLC THIS LAST YEAR AND IT WAS REALLY POSITIVE, AND WE GOT A LOT OF PEOPLE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THE LEGISLATIVE PROCESS AND WE WANTED TO CONTINUE TO GROW THAT.

SO WE ONLY HAVE A FEW RETURNING MEMBERS ON THAT ONE BECAUSE WE WANT TO CONTINUE TO EXPAND THAT REACH. SO WITH THAT, I'LL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS.

BOARD, ANY QUESTIONS.

MOVE TO APPROVE THE RECOMMENDED MEMBERS OF THE DISTRICT ADVISORY COUNCIL AND THE LEGISLATIVE LEADERSHIP COMMITTEE.

SECOND.

A MOTION BY MR. CLASSE, SECOND BY MS. GILLESPIE. ALL IN FAVOR. AYE.

MOTION PASSES 7-0.

THANK YOU, DANNY. WE APPRECIATE ALL THE HARD WORK.

I KNOW THAT'S A LOT. WE WILL MOVE ON TO ITEM 12D.

[12.D. Consider and act on the Resolution Concerning our Local Remote Learning Program]

CONSIDER AN ACT ON A RESOLUTION CONCERNING OUR LOCAL REMOTE LEARNING PROGRAM.

DR. CUNNINGHAM? THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. AS YOU'RE AWARE, THE TEXAS STATE LEGISLATURE PASSED SENATE BILL 15 DURING THE SECOND SPECIAL SESSION THIS YEAR, WHICH WAS SUBSEQUENTLY SIGNED INTO LAW.

THE BILL PROVIDES SCHOOL DISTRICTS THE OPTION TO PASS A RESOLUTION THAT WILL ALLOW TEA TO PROVIDE REMOTE LEARNING FUNDING FOR STUDENTS WHO MEET THE CRITERIA STATED IN THE LEGISLATION, UP TO A STATUTORY LIMIT, WHICH I'LL MENTION IN A MOMENT.

THIS IS A BENEFIT TO FRISCO ISD, AS YOU'LL REMEMBER THAT OUR ORIGINAL PLAN WAS TO USE ESSER FUNDS FOR A TEMPORARY ONLINE SCHOOL OR TOLLS, AS WE CALL IT.

[01:45:01]

WE WILL NEED TO PASS A RESOLUTION FOR EACH SCHOOL YEAR THAT WE'RE SEEKING FUNDING FOR REMOTE LEARNING. TONIGHT, THE RESOLUTION WILL ALLOW US TO SEEK FUNDING FOR THE CURRENT SCHOOL YEAR ONLY.

PLEASE KNOW THAT WE HAVE CURRENTLY HAVE NO PLANS TO INCREASE OUR TOOLS PROGRAMING.

THERE ARE A MYRIAD OF CONDITIONS THAT ARE JUST MUST FOLLOW IN ORDER TO RECEIVE FUNDING, AND WE WANT TO ASSURE YOU THAT WE ARE IN COMPLIANCE WITH THOSE CONDITIONS.

THERE ARE THREE ACTIONS THAT WE WILL ULTIMATELY HAVE TO COMPLETE.

THE FIRST IS GAINING YOUR APPROVAL OF THE RESOLUTION IS PRESENTED IN THE BOARD BOOK ON PAGE 107. THE SECOND ACTION IS THAT WE MUST POST OUR REMOTE LEARNING PLAN, WHICH WE WILL DO AFTER APPROVAL OF THE RESOLUTION.

THIS PLAN CONTAINS OUR INSTRUCTIONAL APPROACH AND CERTAIN REQUIRED ATTESTATIONS REGARDING THE CONDITIONS I MENTIONED EARLIER.

A COPY OF THE PROPOSED PLAN IS IN THE BOARD BOOK, BEGINNING ON PAGE 108.

THE FINAL ACTION WILL BE APPROVAL AT A SUBSEQUENT BOARD MEETING, NOT TONIGHT, TO SEEK A WAIVER THAT WILL ALLOW FUNDING BEYOND THE STATUTORY CAP IN THE LEGISLATION THAT CURRENTLY LIMITS FUNDING FOR REMOTE LEARNING STUDENTS TO 10 PERCENT OF THIS TOTAL DISTRICT STUDENT ENROLLMENT. WE ARE OVER THAT CAP AND WILL SEEK THE WAIVER AT A LATER BOARD MEETING.

HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

BOARD, ANY QUESTIONS? I DO HAVE ONE, I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SEE WHERE OUR FINAL NUMBERS LANDED FOR OUR INCOMING STUDENTS THAT ARE LEAVING VIRTUAL ACADEMY AND COMING BACK TO FACE TO FACE STARTING NEXT MONDAY BECAUSE THE END OF THE MARKET PERIOD IS FRIDAY.

SO HOW MANY KIDDOS ARE WE GETTING BACK? SO WE HAD JUST OVER 1500 STUDENTS CURRENTLY ENROLLED IN TOLLS THAT REQUESTED A CHANGE TO A FACE TO FACE ENVIRONMENT TO TAKE EFFECT TO THE BEGINNING OF THE SECOND NINE WEEKS, WHICH IS NEXT MONDAY. I NEED TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT BEGINNING LAST FRIDAY ON A THREE DAY WEEKEND, NO LESS, MEMBERS FROM OUR HR DEPARTMENT, LEADERSHIP DEPARTMENT, INFORMATION SERVICE DEPARTMENT AND DR.

TINA NIXON, WHO'S OUR TOTAL ADMINISTRATOR, WORKED THROUGH THE WEEKEND TO MAKE THESE REQUESTED CHANGES POSSIBLE AND THEIR CONTINUING WORK THIS WEEK.

BUT THEY BEGIN WORK FRIDAY AFTERNOON.

WHILE WE'RE EXCITED TO HAVE THEM BACK ON OUR CAMPUSES AND THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE STAFF THAT I KNOW, THEY'VE WORKED SO HARD.

NOT JUST THIS NINE WEEKS, BUT THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRETY OF THIS PANDEMIC, AS STUDENTS HAVE SHIFTED BETWEEN VIRTUAL AND FACE TO FACE, THEY WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO THROUGHOUT THE SEMESTER. SO WE'RE APPRECIATIVE OF THE FLEXIBILITY AND THE HARD WORK THAT IT TAKES TO HAVE THOSE KIDDOS COME BACK TO OUR CLASSROOMS. SO THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR STAFF AND THANK YOU ALL FOR LEADING THAT CHARGE.

BOARD, ANY QUESTIONS? AND IF NOT, I'D LIKE TO JUST MAKE A COMMENT FOR THE TEACHERS AND THE STUDENTS, FOR THE STUDENTS THAT ARE RETURNING. GOOD LUCK.

I HOPE EVERYTHING GOES WELL AND THAT TRANSITION IS SMOOTH.

AND FOR THE TEACHERS, WE'RE THINKING ABOUT YOU.

WE KNOW THAT WHENEVER THERE'S FIFTEEN HUNDRED KIDS COMING BACK IN, THAT THAT'S A BIG CHANGE TO THE YEAR AS IT HAS ALREADY STARTED.

SO WE'RE WISHING YOU ALL OR I'M WISHING WELL WISHES FOR EVERYBODY, AND I HOPE IT'S A SMOOTH TRANSITION. THANK YOU, BOARD, IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, I'LL LOOK FOR A MOTION. I MOVE TO APPROVE THE RESOLUTION CONCERNING OUR LOCAL REMOTE LEARNING PROGRAM AND HAVE THE PLAN POSTED ON THE WEBSITE.
