TO HONOR HIS BATTLE AGAINST ILLEGAL DRUGS, FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS BEGAN TO WEAR RED BADGES OF SATIN AND SOME PARENTS BEGAN TO FORM COALITIONS. NATIONAL RED RIBBON WEEK GREW FROM THE GRASSROOT EFFORTS TO FORM A NATIONAL MOVEMENT AGAINST THE USE OF ILLEGAL DRUGS. ITS ANNUAL CAMPAIGN ENCOURAGES STUDENTS TO TAKE A VISIBLE STAND AGAINST SUBSTANCE ABUSE AND MAKE A PERSONAL COMMITMENT TO FOLLOW A DRUG FREE LIFESTYLE. THE 2019 RED RIBBON THEME IS SEND A MESSAGE, STAY DRUG FEE, A CALL TO ACTION TO SPEAK OUT IN SUPPORT OF HEALTHY CHOICES. THE THEME IS ALSO A REMINDER THAT BY STAYING DRUG FREE, YOU ARE SENDING A MESSAGE TO YOURSELF AND OTHERS ABOUT HOW MUCH YOU VALUE YOURSELF, YOUR COMMUNITY, AND YOUR FUTURE. NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH STARTED IN 1915 AS AMERICAN INDIAN DAY BIT BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA. OVER THE YEARS, INDIVIDUAL STATES RECOGNIZED NATIONAL AMERICAN DAYS BUT NOT UNTIL 990 DID PRESIDENT GEORGE H.W. BUSH DESIGNATED NOVEMBER AS NATIONAL INDIAN HERITAGE MONTH.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION AND THANKS TO THOSE WHO HAVE COME TO SPEAK TO US TONIGHT. SO THE FIRST PERSON IS ELENA MARIE WEISSENBOECK FOLLOWED BY DAVE HATCHER.>>GOOD EVENING. MY NAME’S ELENA. I’M A SEAR I DON’T KNOW. DURING MY SOPHOMORE YEAR IN HIGH SCHOOL, I WAS IN MY HEALTH CLASSROOM LIKE ANY OTHER DAY WHEN THE GIRLS WERED TO WAIT IN THE HALLWAY WHILE THE BOYS LEARNED HOW TO CHECK THEIR BODIES FOR TESTICULAR CANCER. WHEN WE RE-ENTERED, WE CONTINUED ON OUR NUTRITION UNIT LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED. I ASKED MY TEACHER WHEN WE’D LEARN HOW TO CHECK OURSELVES FOR BREAST CANCER. SHE TOLD ME IT GOT TAKEN OUT OF OUR CURRICULUM. I HAD BEEN VOLUNTEERING WITH THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY MAKING STRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER EVENTS AND I WAS FULLY AWARE OF GIRLS AS YOUNG AS 15 AND 16 WALKING AROUND WITH WIGS UNDERGOING CHEMO. EVERY YEAR 500 TEENS FROM THE AGES OF 14 TO 19 ARE DIAGNOSED WITH BREAST CANCER ANNUALLY IN AMERICA ALONE. THAT’S TWO HIGH SCHOOLS FULL OF STUDENTS DIAGNOSED IN 365 DAYS. ALSO BREAST CANCER DOESN’T PICK AND CHOOSE. BOYS AND GIRLS ALIKE ARE BEING TARGETED BY THIS. MANY THINK THAT DOCTORS CAN HANDLE IT. THE TRUTH IS WOMEN WON’T START RECEIVING MAMMOGRAMS UNTIL THEY NEAR AGE OF MENOPAUSE. BOYS SOMETIMES DON’T KNOW THEY CAN GET BREAST CANCER. I CONDUCTED A POLL OUT OF MY CLASSMATES. WE WERE THE FIRST GENERATION AT MY HIGH SCHOOL TO NOT LEARN ABOUT IT. 25% THOUGHT PALES COULDN’T GET BREAST CANCER. A STUDY FOUND WITHOUT SELF-EXAMINATIONS, 40% OF MASS GOES UNDETECTED. A LOT OF FACES IN FRONT OF ME ARE FAMILIAR. WHEN YOU VISITED OAKTON HIGH SCHOOL FOR CANDIDATES DAY I BROUGHT UP MY CAN PROJECT IDEA, AND EVERYONE TOLD ME TO COME AND SPEAK ABOUT THIS ISSUE. I FOUND THAT AFTER FAIRFAX COUNTY GOT RID OF THIS TEACHING, SEVERAL COUNTIES IN VIRGINIA FOLLOWED SUIT, AND I’M HERE TONIGHT TO ASK YOU TO PLEASE REINSTATE THIS TEACHING. IT’S FREE. IT’S PROBABLY FIVE MINUTES, IT IT’S A LIFE LESSON THAT CAN HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO SAVE LIVES. THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE]>>THANK YOU. DAVE HATCHER, FOLLOWED BY NORM HALL.>>GOOD EVENING. DAVE HATCHER, A PROVIDENCE RESIDENT FOR THE LAST 35 YEARS. MY KIDS, TWO KIDS GRADUATED. I HAVE SPOKEN HERE BEFORE BEFORE DR. BRABRAND ARRIVED HERE. I WANT TO BEGIN TONIGHT BY STEWART AND HIS HIGH SCHOOL GOT JUSTICE. KIND OF A BAD JOKE. INSTEAD OF SPENDING RELATIVELY SMALL AMOUNTS OF TAXPAYERS’ MONEY ON CHANGING SCHOOLS NAMES, WHY DON’T YOU REALLY THINK ABOUT GOING FOR THE WHOLE ENCHILADA AND PUSH THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS TO CHANGE THE NAME OF FAIRFAX COUNTY? DON’T WE ALL WANT TO DISTANCE OURSELVES FROM ONE OF VIRGINIA’S WORST SLAVE KEEPERS? THE SIXTH FAIRFAX OF CAMERON WHO LIVED IN THE EARLY 1700S? HISTORY LESSON. LAND FOR HIM WAS ROBERT KING CARTER, 300,000 ACRES IN THIS IN TRUE OAK PARISH AND OWNED 1,000 SLAVES. THE EARLIEST RECORDED HISTORY OF SLAVE KEEPING IN VIRGINIA IN WEST SAW WAS ON THE ESTATE OF THE SAME LORD FAIRFAX WHO OWNED 150 SLAVES. SO TO BE TOTALLY POLITICALLY CORRECT, IF LORD FAIRFAX OWNED SLAVES, SHOULDN’T WE THEN RENAME THIS COUNTY? THINK ABOUT IT. RUMOR HAS IT NOW YOU’RE THINKING ABOUT CHANGING THE NAME OF ROBERT E. LEE HIGH SCHOOL. MAYBE FAIRFAX HIGH SCHOOL WOULD BE A BETTER ALTERNATIVE. THE NEXT CRAZIEST EXPENSE. WHEN OVER 800 TRAILERS ON SCHOOL TRAILERS ALL OVER THE COUNTY, COUPLE BEHIND THIS BUILDING, AND 22,000 STUDENTS ARE PUTTING UP WITH LEARNING NEEDS AND CLASSROOM COMFORTS THAT ARE SUBSTANDARD. BECAUSE WE’VE GOT TO CHANGE NAMES! HERE’S AN IDEA FOR A NEW NAME. MAYBE THE NEXT HIGH SCHOOL SHOULD BE SOCIAL JUSTICE HIGH SCHOOL OR BETTER YET, INJUSTICE. HOORAY FOR INJUSTICE! WHERE DOES IT STOP, MADAM CHAIRPERSON? WHERE DOES IT STOP, ALL YOU BOARD MEMBERS? WHEN WILL YOU, ALL OF YOU, BE SATISFIED REVISING HISTORY? HERE’S THE WORDS FROM GEORGE R. WELL IN 1984. EVERY RECORD HAS BEEN DESTROYED OR FALSIFIED. EVERY BOOK REWRITTEN. EVERY PICTURE REPAINTED ABOUT P EVERY STATUE AND STREET BUILDING RENAMED. EVERY DATE ALTERED. AND THE PROCESS IS CONTINUING DAY BY DAY. HISTORY IS STOPPED. NOTHING EXISTS. EXCEPT AN ENDLESS PRESENT IN WHICH THE PARTY IS ALWAYS RIGHT. SO WITH YOUR PREMISE IS THAT MONEY SHOULD BE NO OBJECT, AND I’VE HEARD THAT BEFORE, EXPRESSED BY YOU PEOPLE. MONEY IS NO OBJECT. NO EXPENSE SHOULD BE SPARED TO DO THE RIGHT THING, THE NOBLE THING, ELIMINATING VESTAGES OF SLAVERY.>>THANK YOU, MR. HATCHER. THANK YOU, MR. HATCHER. WE APPRECIATE YOU.>>SHAME ON YOU, ALL OF YOU.>>NORM HALL, FOLLOWED BY KIMBERLY ADAMS.>>GOOD EVENING. I’M NORM HALL, ANNIVERSARY ADVOCACY COACH. TONIGHT I RISE IN FUNDAMENTAL SUPPORT OF THE 2020 STATE LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM. BY THIS, I MEAN TO SUPPORT SIX OF THE SEVEN ITEMS IN PART S OF THE STATE PROGRAM CONCERNING SPECIAL EDUCATION. I CANNOT SAY WE SUPPORT ITEM FIVE, WHICH PLACES THE BURDEN OF PROOF DURING DUE PROCESS HEARINGS TO THE PARTY BRINGING THE ACTION. IT’S IMPORTANT THAT THE LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM PROVIDES STRONG EMPHASIS IN STUDENT HEALTH AND WELLNESS. ALL TOO MANY STUDENTS HAVE UNMET NEEDS THAT UNDERMINE THEIR ABILITY TO FULLY BENEFIT FROM AN EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM. FURTHER, I WANT TO ADD SUPPORT TO THE 12 PROVISIONS IN PART AB ON TEACHERS AND INSTRUCTIONAL PERSONNEL. GIVEN THE PERP EXISTENCE OF THE ACHIEVEMENT GAP FOR STUDENT WITH DISABILITIES AS REVEALED IN THE 2019 TEST RESULTS, IT IS CLEAR THAT ALL STAKEHOLDERS INVOLVED IN WORKING WITH STUDENTS WITH DISABILITY MAKE SURE STAFF RECRUITING RETENTION TRAINING, WORKLOADS QUARTERBACK DETERMINATION OF ACCOMMODATIONS RECEIVE THE THOROUGH RETENTION NEEDED TO MAKE PROGRESS. LAST TIME ADDRESSED THE SCHOOL BOARD, I OFFERED SUPPORT FOR ADOPTING TECHNIQUES TO ADDRESS PARTICULAR NEEDS WITH STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES. TO HAVE THE IMPACT ON THE SCALE NEEDS TO IMPROVE PERFORMANCE UP TO 14% STUDENTS, IT SEEMS CLEAR SOME HUMAN RESOURCES PRACTICES MAY NEED TO BE REVIEWED AS WELL, INCLUDING THOSE WITH CONDITIONS SET BY VIRGINIA STATUTES AND REGULATIONS. SO I APPROVE OF THE WORK GOING FORWARD. I CLOSE BY OFFERING SEPTA AS A SOURCE EVER STAKEHOLDERS IN SUPPORT. WE ARE DETERMINED TO BE PARTNERS IN MAKING THE BEST IMPROVEMENTS POSSIBLE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE SCHOOL BOARD, THE SUPERINTENDENT, ADMINISTRATORS, AND OF COURSE, OUR ALLIES WHO ARE MEMBERS OF AND REPRESENTED BY THE TEACHERS’ UNIONS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. [APPLAUSE]>>THANK YOU, MR. HALL. MS. ADAMS, FOLLOWED BY AMANDA CAMPBELL.>>I’LL NEED MY OWN TIMER. GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS KIMBERLY ADAMS, SPEAKING AAS THE PRESIDENT OF THE FAIRFAX ASSOCIATION. A UNION REPRESENTING EMPLOYEES FROM NEARLY ALL JOB CATEGORIES IN FCPS. YOUR PROGRAM CAPTURES SO MANY FACETS OF OUR SYSTEM AND ENCOURAGES SUPPORT FOR THE MANY PRIORITIES OF THE BOARD. AS WE LOOK AT THE AGENDA, IT IS IMPORTANT NOTE MANY ITEMS WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT YOUR PREMIERE WORKFORCE. WE CAN ALL AGREE HAVING A POSITIVE WORK ENVIRONMENT, POSITIVELY BENEFITS EVERYONE. THE FEA AND THE SCHOOL BOARD HAVE BEEN IN AGREEMENT FOR YEARS THAT OUR STUDENTS’ LEARNING CONDITIONS ARE OUR TEACHERS P WORKING CONDITIONS. ALL EMPLOYEES, REGARDLESS OF THE JOB, ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE SUCCESS OF YOUR SYSTEM. ALL EMPLOYEES DESERVE TO BE TREATED WITH RESPECT AND A LEVEL OF AUTO NO, MA’AMY TO DO THE JOB THEY WERE HIRED WHILE FOLLOWING REGULAR YULING AS AND POLICIES. THE NUMBER OF NEW PROGRAMS, INITIATIVES, AND REQUIREMENTS HAS GROWN AND THERE’S NOT ENOUGH TIME NOR ADEQUATE STAFF TO FULFILL ALL THE REQUIREMENTS. WE HEAR FROM MEMBERS DAILY THAT THEY’RE FEAR TO HAVE SPEAK UP TO ADMINISTRATION, TO LET THEM TRULY KNOW THEY CAN’T MEET THE EXPECTATIONS. NOT DUE TO LACK OF MOTIVATION BUT LIMITED HOURS IN THE DAY. THEY’RE AFRAID OF BEING CALLED NOT A TEAM PLAYER OR NOT A GOOD FIT IN THEIR SCHOOL. WE HEAR SUPERVISORS ARE NOT EXHIBITING POSITIVE MANAGEMENT SKILLS WE EXPECT OF MANAGEMENT. WE HEAR THAT SUPPLIES NEEDED TO COMPLETE TASKS ARE NOT ADEQUATE. MAINTENANCE CONCERNS ARE GROWING. SAFETY OF EMPLOYEES IS QUESTIONED. EMPLOYEE HOURS MAY BE BEING CUT AND SUPPORT STAFF REDUCED. EVALUATIONS BEING USED TO PUNISH STAFF RATHER THAN PROMOTE POSITIVE CLIMATE AND GROWTH. THE THESE ARE STRONG EMPLOYEES WHO HAVE DONE SO MUCH FOR SO LONG BUT ARE REACHING OUT TO THE UNION FOR HELP. PEOPLE WHO LOVE THEIR JOBS, THEIR STUDENTS, THEIR DEPARTMENT, BUT I CAN’T TAKE THE WORKLOAD AND THE DISRESPECT. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. THIS IS NOT THE CARING CULTURE WE ARE STRIVING FOR. THIS LACK OF POSITIVE WORKPLACE CULTURE MUST BE ADDRESSED IMMEDIATELY. WE BELIEVE THE CONVERGENCE OF TOO MANY BEST PRACTICES AND NOT ENOUGH TIME IS WHAT’S CAUSING OUR TEACHERS TO NOT NECESSARILY BE ABLE TO SERVE ALL STUDENTS BY NAME AND BY NEED. WE CANNOT SAY OUR BUILDINGS ARE BEING ADEQUATELY MAINTAINED OR SAY OUR BUS IS EVENING TOP NOTCH OR THAT OUR SYSTEM IS STILL WORLD CLASS. A TEACHER ADVISORY COUNCIL SAYS THE WORK LAD IS THE MAIN CONCERN, OUTWEIGHING FAR OTHER ISSUES. IT’S TIME MAYBE WE DON’T JUST FOCUS ON CLASS SIDE BUT WHAT WE AS A SYSTEM CAN DO TO FIND WAYS TO UNBURDEN OUR WORKFORCE, TO ALLOW TIME TO ACCOMPLISH THE CORE RESPONSIBILITIES. SEA SPENT MANY YEARS HELPING SEE THE VALUE OF THE POSITIVE WORKPLACE CULLURE. WE HOPE YOU WILL WORK TO TAKE REAL STEPS TO ADDRESS THE CARING CULTURAL, PROMOTE POSITIVE WORKPLACE CULTURE AND TOGETHER WE WILL HELP MAINTAIN –>>THANK YOU.>>OF A WORLD CLASS SYSTEM.>>AMANDA CAMPBELL. FOLLOWED BY GOLZAR ALLEN.>>GOOD EVENING. I AM SPEAK TONIGHT AS AN INDIVIDUAL. FIRST THANK YOU TO DR. BRAY AND, FCPS CENTRAL OFFICE STAFF FOR THE HELPFUL AND INFORMATIVE MEET AND GREET TUESDAY. WAYS THRILLED TO SEE THE EVENT RETURN IN FALL AND HOPE IT WILL CONTINUE MOVING FORWARD. AS HAS BEEN A THEME IN MY PREVIOUS TESTIMONIES REGARDING STRATEGIC PLAN, EACH REPORT REINFORCES THE NEED FOR THE DATA. THE CORNERSTONE OF THE ENTIRE PORTION OF THE STRATEGIC PLAN IS IN THE FIRST TWO METRICS. NEITHER METRIC — I UNDERSTAND THE STUDENT DATA COMES FROM THE VIRGINIA STATE CLIMATE SURVEY, TO SO IT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR SURVEYS THAT HAVE ALREADY HAPPENED. I ENCOURAGE FCPS TO WORK WITH THE STATE FOR REASONS I WILL EXPLAIN IN A MOMENT. FCPS DOES HOWEVER HAVE MORE DIRECT CONTROL OVER THE EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT SURVEY. FCPS NEEDS TO WORK WITH THOSE ADMINISTERING THE YEAR’S SURVEY TO INCLUDE QUESTIONS THAT WILL ALLOW FOR DISAGGREGATION AT LEAST BY JOB TITLE. IT WOULD BE HELPFUL IF IT COULD INCLUDE DISAGGREGATION BY ELEMENTARY, MIDDLE, HIGH SCHOOL, AS LONG AS IT DOESN’T BECOME TOO IDENTIFYING. I SPOKE WITH DR. BRABRAND TUESDAY. I WANTED TO MENTION IT TO THE BOARD. FUTURE FAMILY ENGAGEMENT SURVEYS SHOULD BE DISAGGREGATED BY SPECIAL EDUCATION. THE NEED FOR THE DISAGGREGATION IS MADE CLEAR BY THE THIRD OBJECTIVE, THE NUMBER OF DISRUPTED BEHAVIOR INCIDENTS. THE METRIC IS BY SUBGROUP AND MAKES CLEAR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES ARE THE SUBGROUP THAT FACES THE MOST REFERRALS IN THE COUNTY. THE LIST OF ACTIONS TAKEN DOESN’T ADDRESS WHAT I THINK IS MOST IMPORTANT CONNECTION. THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE CHILD FEELING RESPECTED AND THE CHILD ACTING OUT. AS A PARENT I HAVE NO HESITATION IN SAYING THIS CONNECTION IS A CRITICAL KEY TO EFFECT EFFLUENTLY LESSENING DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR. I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW MANY TIMES I BROUGHT MY DAUGHTER WHO HAS COMPLEX COMMUNICATION NEEDS TO THE DOCTORS OFFICE AND HAD HER SCREAMING TO THE APPOINTMENT AND PHYSICALLY REACTING TO BEING EXAMINED. SHE’S BEEN ABLE TO TELL ME SHE WANTS DOCTORS TO TALK TO HER, NOT AT HER OR ABOUT HER. SHE WANTS THEM TO ASK HER PERMISSION, NOT JUST MINE, TO TOUCH OR EXAMINE HER. SHE WANTS TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON. THESE ARE ALL ENTIRELY AGE APPROPRIATE DESIRES THAT CAN BE EASILY OVERLOOKED AS JUST HER MISBEHAVING. NOW THAT SHE’S MADE THOSE REQUESTS AND WE RESPECT THEM, SHE DOESN’T EXTREME IN THE MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS ANYMORE. I COULD GO ON AND ON WITH EXAMPLES BUT THE IDEA IS WELL SUPPORTED IN PARENTING THEORY AND RESEARCH AS WELL. THESE CONNECTIONS CANNOT BE EXPLORED WITHOUT ACCESS TO THE NECESSARY DATA. GIVEN THE RECENT DISCIPLINE STUDY DIDN’T EXPLORE STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES AS INITIALLY INTENDED, IT’S MORE CRITICAL NOW TO DO WHATEVER POSSIBLE TO ENSURE IT IN THE FUTURE. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE]>>GOLZAR ALLEN FOLLOWED BY NAT SUBRAM ANIAN. AND I APOLOGIZE. I MISPRONOUNCED YOUR NAME.>>GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS GOLZAR ALLEN. FCPS TEACHER, RETIRED, AND MEMBER OF MY UNION FCFT. WE BECOME TEACHERS WE LOVE THE PROFESSION AND ARE VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT IT. BUT TOO MANY OF US FACE BULLYING FROM ADMINISTRATION THAT LEADS US TO FIND THE NEAREST EXIT TO QUIT OR RETIRE. THIS IS MY EXPERIENCE AND THE EXPERIENCE OF MY COLLEAGUES. MY ADMINISTRATION DID NOT RESPECT ME OR MY PROFESSIONALISM, AND MANY PEOPLE FEEL THIS WAY IN FCPS. THE SCHOOL BOARDS MUST HAVE GREATER OVERSIGHT OVER ADMINISTRATORS TO REALLY IMPLEMENT CARING CULTURE. HERE ARE JUST A FEW EXAMPLES OF BULLYING THAT PUSHED ME TO RETIRE EARLY FROM FCPS. DISRUPT EFFLUENT STUDENTS WERE CONSTANTLY PULLED OUT OF OTHER CLASSROOMS AND PUT INTO MY OR COLLEAGUES’ CLASSROOMS WITHOUT PRIOR KNOWLEDGE. WHEN WE ATTEMPT TO ENFORCE STANDARD CLASSROOM RULES, IF THOSE STUDENTS COMPLAIN TO THE OFFICE ABOUT OUR ENFORCEMENT, THE ADMINISTRATION CONSTANTLY TOOK THEIR SIDE AND DISCIPLINED US. WHEN I TOLD STUDENTS, FOR EXAMPLE, NOT TO APPLY THEIR ACRYLIC NAIL IN A LAB SETTING, THAT STUDENT COMPLAINED TO THE OFFICE AND THE ADMINISTRATION. PUT A MEMO IN MY FILE. ANOTHER TIME A STUDENT WAS CHATTING ACROSS THE ROOM, DISRUPTING THE CLASS FOR EVERYONE. WHEN I ATTEMPT TO ENFORCE CLASSROOM DISCIPLINE, THE STUDENT WENT TO TELL THE OFFICE CAN AND ADMINISTRATION TOLD ME TO COME TO THE OFFICE AND APOLOGIZE DIRECTLY TO THE STUDENT. FOR THIS, I RECEIVED A MEMO IN MY FILE. ANOTHER EXAMPLE, TEACHERS TRY TO PREVENT STUDENTS FROM PLACING BACKPACKS IN THE AISLES IN THE LAB SETTING BECAUSE IT WAS A SAFETY HAZARD. ADMINISTRATION DID NOT SUPPORT US TAKING THIS STEP AND STUDENTS DID NOT AS A RESULT. WHEN A TEACHER WAS SERIOUSLY INJURED, TRIPPING OVER A BACKPACK, I SAW SOMEONE PUSHED ALL THE BACKPACKS UNDER THE TABLE BEFORE TAKING A PHOTO TO DOCUMENT THE INCIDENT. I WANTED TO LEAVE MY SCHOOL BECAUSE OF THIS ABUSE OF ENVIRONMENT. HOWEVER, AN ADMINISTRATOR PUT MEMOS IN MY PERSONAL FILE TO BLOCK ME FROM GOING TO OTHER SCHOOLS. WHEN I RENEWED MY TEACHER LICENSE A FEW YEARS AGO, I WAS CALLED INTO A MEETING WHERE AN ADMINISTRATOR SAY TO MY FACE THAT I WAS NOT A GOOD TEACHER FOR THE 21ST CENTURY.>>THANK YOU, MS. ALLEN.>>YOU’RE VERY WELCOME.>>HAVE YOU GIVEN YOUR COMMENTS TO THE CLERK? BECAUSE SHE WILL SHARE THEM WITH THE WHOLE BOARD.>>I CAN. HE WILL TAKE CARE OF IT.>>EXCELLENT.>>THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LISTENING.>>THANK YOU. NAT SUBRAMANIAN.>>ALL RIGHT. HELLO, SCHOOL BOARD. I’M SPEAK TODAY ON BEHALF OF TINO WILLIAMS, PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERATION OF TEACHERS. SHE SENDS HER APOLOGIES SHE COULDN’T ATTEND TONIGHT. THIS IS HER STATEMENT. I’M SPEAK TODAY BECAUSE WE MUST DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO END BULLYING IN ANY FORM IN OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS. I WANT TO COMMEND THE SCHOOL BOARD AND THE SCHOOL DISTRICT FOR DECLARING OCTOBER ANTI-BULLYING MONTH IN OUR SCHOOLS. SOLVING PROBLEMS STARTS WITH RECOGNIZING THEY EXIST. THIS MONTH’S FOCUS IS A GREAT STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. TEACHERS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ON THE FRONT LINES AND CONFRONT THE PROBLEM EVERY DAY. IN CLASSROOMS, HALLWAYS, AND LUNCHROOMS. OUR UNION IS PART OF THE NATIONAL AMERICAN FEDERATION OF TEACHERS. THE AFT HAS BEEN A LEADER IN COMBATING BULLYING. EVEN AS PROFESSIONAL AIDE IKEATEORS AND STAFF ARE CORRECTLY CALLING ATTENTION TO THE PROBLEM OF STUDENT BULLYING, WE SHOULD ALSO REMIND OURSELF THAT’S BULLYING TAKES MANY FORMS. SOMETIMES THOSE EDUCATORS WHO ARE HELPING PROTECTS STUDENTS BECOME THE TARGETS BOYFRIEND WORKPLACE BULLYING. OUR MEMBERS BELIEVE ALL EMPLOYEES HAVE RIGHT TO BE TREATED WITH DIGNITY AND RESPECT TO WORK IN A SAFE ENVIRONMENT, FREE OF BEHAVIOR THAT HARMS, INTIMIDATED, DEFENDS, OR HUMILIATES THEM. EDUCATORS ARE REGULARLY IS THED TO POLICIES AND PRACTICES THAT SET THEM UP TO BE BULLIED. SOME EXAMPLES. SELECTIVELY PACKING CLASSES OF DISFAVORED TEACHERS WITH 30 OR MORE STUDENTS. LABELING TEACHERS INCOMPETENT WHEN CLASSROOM BECOMES AN ISSUE IN THEIR PURPOSELY OVERCROWDED CLASSES. IMPOSING EXCESSIVE DEMANDS ON TEACHERS WHO REQUEST TIME AWAY. REQUIRING UNNECESSARY ADVANCE LESSON PLANS AND NEVER LOOKING AT THEM. MAKING A DISFAVORED SITUATION — TEACHER’S SITUATION UNBEARABLE RATHER THAN ADDRESSING WHATEVER THE PERCEIVED ISSUES MAY BE AND CREATING A WORKING ATMOSPHERE IN WHICH TEACHERS ARE OFTEN AFRAID FOR THEIR JOBS AND FEARFUL AN ADMINISTRATOR WILL PENALIZE THEM FOR JUST TALK BEING ISSUES. THESE ARE EXAMPLES EDUCATORS HAVE FACED. THEY COME IN THE FORM OF POLICY, FEEDBACK, PROFESSIONAL GUIDANCE, OR LABOR MANAGEMENT DIALOGUE OR SEEMINGLY NEUTRAL TERMS. IT BOILS DOWN TO BULLYING. WORKPLACE BULLYING CAN LOOK LIKE INVALID CRITICISM, UNJUSTIFIED BLAME, BEING TREATED DIFFERENTLY FROM OTHERS, BEING SWORN AT, SHOUTED AT, OR HUMILIATED, EXCESSIVE MONITORING, AND SITUATION OR SOCIAL ISOLATION. IT CHIPS AWAY AT PROFESSIONALISM, DEPRESSES PRODUCTIVITY, AND DESTROYS MORALE. I URGE YOU TO DECLARE THAT ALL BULLYING MUST CAMPAIGN EXERCISE YOUR OVERSIGHT AUTHORITY OVER ADMINISTRATION BY IMPLEMENTING POLICIES FOR ACCOUNTABILITY. LET’S WORK TOGETHER TO ATTACK BULLYING IN ALL THE FORMS, NO MATTER WHO THE TARGET MAY BE. A CARING CULTURE IS AN ACCOUNTABLE CULTURE. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. CAROLYN RASH FOLLOWED BY JULIE LAWTHER.>>AS YOU ARE ALREADY AWARE, OCTOBER IS ANTI-BULLYING MONTH. NOT ONLY DOES IT BULLYING AFFECT OUR CHILDREN –>>MS. RASH. I’M SORRY. WE CAN’T HEAR YOU. DO YOU MINE — THANK YOU. BUST A BIT CLOSE TOTER MICROPHONE.>>NOT ONLY DOES THE BULLYING AFFECT OUR CHILDREN AND TEENS, BUT BULLYING AFFECTS THE ADULTERS AS WELL. FOR EXAMPLE, WITHIN OUR OWN SCHOOL SYSTEM, I’VE SEEN ADMINISTRATORS BULLY TEACHERS ON A FAR TOO FREQUENT BASIS. WHAT STARTED AS A COMMENDABLE SYSTEM GIVING POSITIVE AND VALUABLE FEEDBACK TO TO TEACHERS SOME YEARS BACK HAS BASICALLY EVOLVED INTO A ONGOING THREAT OF GOTCHA. INDIVIDUAL ADMINISTRATORS HAVE FAR TOO MUCH POWER OVER THE SUCCESS AND FAILURE OF THE TEACHERS ASSIGNED TO THEM DURING BOTH FORMATIVE YEARS. THIS IS AN AREA THE SCHOOL BOARD NEED TO EXERCISE MORE OVERSIGHT. I HAVE WATCHED AS SEASONED VETERAN TEACHERS HAVE BEEN FORCED INTO RETIREMENT BECAUSE THEIR ADMINISTRATOR DECIDED IT WAS TIME FOR THEM TO GO. THE UNRELENTING CRITICISM DEMORALIZES THE INDIVIDUAL AND FURTHER IMPACTS ON HIS OR HER ABILITY TO TEACH. AS AN FCFT BUILDING REPRESENTATIVE, I HAVE LISTENED TO NUMEROUS TEACHERS TELL STORIES OF BEING THREATENED WITH REDUCTIONS IN THEIR SALARY, OF BEING CALLED INCOMPETENT, OF BEING SELL THILLY WATCHED THROUGH THEIR CLASSROOM DOOR WINDOWS. IN ONE CASE, THE TEACHER HAD SUCH A DIFFICULT ADMINISTRATOR THAT HIS BEHAVIORS TOOK ITS TOLL. THIS PARTICULAR TEACHER WAS EVENTUALLY DIAGNOSED WITH PTSD, DIRECTLY RESULTING FROM HER ADMINISTRATOR’S UNRELENTING PRACTICES. WHEN FCPS ROLLED OUT ITS CARING CULTURE LAST YEAR, I GRIMACED. IT WAS A COMMENDABLE GOAL FOR US TO INCORPORATE INTO THE SCHOOL DAY AND WE DID. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE ADMINISTRATION? I, AS A VICTIM OF FORCED RETIREMENT, CONSIDERED MY ADMINISTRATOR WONDERING WHY THE CARING CULTURE DIDN’T APPLY TO HIM. AS FCPS CONTINUES THE CARING CULTURE THEME AND WE FOCUS ON THE ANTI-BULLYING THROUGHOUT THIS YEAR, IT IS TIME FOR THE SCHOOL BOARD TO SUPPORT OUR TEACHERS BY EXERCISING MORE OVERSIGHT OVER THE ADMINISTRATION AND BY REDUCE THE POWER THAT THE INDIVIDUAL ADMINISTRATORS HAVE OVER THEIR STAFF.>>THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU.>>JULIE LAWTHER.>>GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS JULIE LAWTHER, AN FCFT MEN. ONE OF OUR FCFT RETIRED MEMBERS PREPARED THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT. SHE COULD NOT BE HERE TONIGHT. SO I’M READING IT ON HER BEHALF. THESE ISSUES ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE MASSIVE POWER ADMINISTRATORS HAVE OVER THEIR STAFF AND FAILURES TO MEET THOSE OF A CARING CULTURE. CURRENT PRACTICES HAVE RESULTED IN TEACHERS LEAVING IN DROVES. IN SOME INSTANCES, AS MANY AS 40 TEACHERS HAVE LEFT CERTAIN SCHOOLS DUE TO HOSTILE WORK ENVIRONMENTS, BEREFT OF SAFETY RULES AND REGULATIONS. ALTHOUGH ADMINISTRATORS IN THE PAST HAVE BEEN VERY SUPPORTIVE OF THEIR STAFF, THEREBY RETAINING HIGHLY QUALIFIED TEACHERS, THIS IS NO LONGER THE CASE. ADMINISTRATORS ARE NO LONGER HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR CREATING UNSAFE TEACHER ENVIRONMENTS WHILE THREATENING TEACHERS. ADMINISTRATORS HAVE BEEN GIVEN ABSOLUTE POWER AND AUTHORITY OVER THEIR STAFF, ESPECIALLY SINCE SUPERINTENDENTS NO LONGER ALLOW ADMINISTRATORS TO BE EVALUATED, LEADING TO A CULTURE OF BULLYING. THIS IS A LIST OF ISSUES TEACHERS FACE ACROSS THE COUNTY IN A SINGLE DAY CONSISTENTLY. THE ADMINISTRATOR WHO IS LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR A STUDENT DISCIPLINE TELLS TEACHERS TO NEVER SEND ANY STUDENT TO THE OFFICE NO MATTER WHAT THE STUDENT DOES, INCLUDING VERBAL ASSAULT, PHYSICAL ASSAULT, THROWING OBJECTS, INCLUDING CHAIRS AND DESKS, AT TEACHERS AND/OR STUDENTS. IF A TEACHER SENDS A STUDENT TO THE OFFICE, THE TEACHER COULD RECEIVE CONSEQUENCES FOR FAILURE TO MAINTAIN A PROPER CLASSROOM DISCIPLINE, PER AN ADMINISTRATIVE DIRECT DURING A STAFF MEETING. ALTHOUGH A STUDENT MAY REFUSE TO DO WORK OR HAVE UNEXCUSED ABSENCES, NO ZEROS ARE ALLOWED TO BE BEGIN INFORM GRADE BOOK. THE LOWEST GRADE ALLOWED IS 50%. IF THERE ARE NO CONSEQUENCES GIVEN FOR NO WORK, THERE IS NO NEED FOR STUDENTS TO ATTEND SCHOOL, THUS ADDING TO THE ISSUES OF CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM ACROSS THE COUNTY. THE ADMINISTRATOR GAVE THIS DRECKIVE TO THE FACULTY DURING A STAFF MEETING AND TO NOT COMPLY WITH ADMINISTRATIVE DIRECTIVES MAY RESULT IN INSUB ORDINATION AND POSSIBLE ISSUES OF TEACHER EVALUATIONS. ADMINISTRATORS PLACE STUDENTS WITH INTELLECTUAL DISABILITIES IN CLASSES WITH STUDENTS WITH LD, ED, OHI, AND AUTISM. OUR TEACHERS DO NOT HAVE THE PROPER BACKGROUND TO TEACH SCIENCE OR MATH TO SUCH MIXED CLASSES WITH THESE VARIOUS DISABILITIES. HOWEVER THE ADMINISTRATION DECIDES THAT THESE STUDENTS WILL TAKE WHATEVER SUBJECT TOGETHER AND TEACHERS ARE DIRECTED THAT STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO EARN CS OR BETTER. OTHERWISE TEACHERS COULD BE PUNISHED FOR INSUB ORDINATION ON THEIR EVALUATIONS OR RECEIVE LETTERS OF REPRIMAND.>>THANK YOU. WE NOW GO TO STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE MATTERS. I CALL ON MS. ATANG.>>GOOD AFTERNOON, EVERYONE. EVENING, I GUESS NOW. GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE. SORRY. IT’S BEEN A LONG QUARTER FOR EVERYONE, I KNOW. I JUST WANTED TO THANK EVERYONE LIKE I DO EVERY WEEK FOR COMING OUT AND SPEAKING ON EVERYTHING THAT’S IMPORTANT TO YOU, ESPECIALLY THE STUDENT THAT CAME OUT TO SPEAK, ELENA, GOOD JOB TODAY. DID YOU WONDERFUL. AND SO I’LL GO ON AND TALK ABOUT EVERYTHING I WANT TO TALK ABOUT TODAY. SO YESTERDAY I HAD MY — I WENT TO MY SECOND SAC MEETING AND I LOVE GOING TO THOSE, BECAUSE I GET TO SEE SO MUCH LEADERSHIP THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY. AND IT’S ALWAYS WONDERFUL SEEING DIFFERENT TYPES OF STUDENT LEADERSHIP THROUGHOUT, LIKE, ALL THE UPPER EDUCATION FROM THE HIGH SCHOOLS ZERO THE SECONDARY SCHOOLS. ALWAYS WONDERFUL GOING THERE. AND ALSO, A BUNK OF WONDERFUL STUDENTS. YOU HEAR ABOUT A BUNCH OF THINGS I NEVER KNEW ABOUT. I LOVE GOING TO THOSE. THIS PAST FRIDAY I WENT TO VISIT JUSTICES. AND I HEARD A BUNCH OF WONDERFUL THINGS FROM THEM. IT WAS A WONDERFUL — THIS WAS MY FIRST ONE. AND I HEARD A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT THINGS. I THINK PROBABLY THE — I WANT TO SAY THE FUNNIEST, THE ONE THAT STUCK OUT TO ME THE MOST. I TOLD THEM ANYTHING GOES. THEY CAN TELL ME WHATEVER. THE ONE FIRST, THE FIRST THING HE TOLD ME, THERE WAS A GROUP OF BOYS. THEY LOOKED AT ME. THEY GO, HEY, THIS IS KIND OF WEIRD AND I’M NOT SURE IF THIS IS — IF YOU COULD EVEN TALK ABOUT THIS. DO YOU KNOW THAT IN THE BIT BATHROOM, THE URINALS DON’T HAVE BOUNDARIES? AND I WAS, LIKE, NO, I DIDN’T KNOW THAT. AND I WAS LOOKING AROUND THE WHOLE ROOM LIKE IS THIS TRUE? THEY’RE LIKE, YEAH. SO HOW CLOSE ARE YOU? PRETTY CLOSE. I WAS, LIKE, THAT’S KIND OF — YOU SEE, I’M A GIRL. OF COURSE, I WOULDN’T KNOW THAT. SO I GO BACK TO MY SCHOOL. I ASKED THE BOYS THAT QUESTION, TOO. AND THEY’RE LIKE MM-MM. PERSONALLY I THOUGHT IT WAS KIND OF CRAZY. I KNOW JUSTICE AND LEE WERE ONE OF THE OLDER SCHOOLS. SO THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS I’M SURE HAVEN’T BEEN CAUGHT UP TO US. I THOUGHT IT WAS KIND OF LIKE — YOU COULD TELL IT WAS SOMETHING THEY’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT BECAUSE IT WAS THE FIRST THING I HEARD ABOUT. EVEN THOUGH I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’D BE ABLE TO DO ABOUT IT, IT WAS A REAL BIG ISSUE FOR THE BOYS THERE. THOUGHT IT WOULD BE GOOD TO MAKE SURE I DO GOOD ON MY PROMISE TO MAKE SURE IT’S KNOWN. BECAUSE I HAD NO IDEA. SO THINGS LIKE THIS, I DON’T KNOW ABOUT. IT’S ALWAYS WONDERFUL FOR ME TO GO VISIT AND HEAR THESE TYPE OF THINGS. I DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT MY OWN SCHOOL. LEE. I DIDN’T KNOW IT WAS A THING AT LEE UNTIL I WENT BACK AND ASKED THEM. WE DON’T GOT THOSE NEITHER. WOW, IT WAS CRAZY FOR ME. SO, LIKE, THINGS LIKE THAT. I WANT TO HEAR FROM MORE STUDENTS, BECAUSE WITHOUT THAT LITTLE JOURNEY, WITHOUT ME GOING — YEAH, THEY WERE SHY TO SPEAK TO ME. I WAS, LIKE, NO, IT’S JUST ME. JUST TALK TO ME. THEY TOLD ME. I WAS, LIKE, YEAH, THESE TYPE OF THINGS, I WANT TO HEAR FROM THEM. BECAUSE I WOULDN’T HAVE KNOWN THEM. I WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO TALK ABOUT THEM RIGHT NOW. IT WAS A WEIRD THING TO SIT UP HERE AND TALK ABOUT URINALS ON INDICT AS BUT I WANT TO HEAR ABOUT THEM. I WENT TO MY WORK SESSION LAST WEEK. I HAD TWO STUDENTS THERE. I THOUGHT IT WAS A PRODUCTIVE MEETING. ANOTHER THING THAT GETS ME IS EVERY SINGLE TIME I SPEAK ABOUT SOMETHING, I ALWAYS LOOK AROUND, LIKE, I’M ALWAYS SUPER HAPPY TO SEE OTHER STUDENT. I WAS SUPER HAPPY TO SEE A SPEAKER TODAY. I LOVE NOT BEING THE ONLY STUDENT. BECAUSE A LOT OF THINGS — OF COURSE, I’M THE STUDENT REP. THAT’S MY ROLE. BUT I DON’T WANT TO BE THE ONLY REP IN A SENSE. LIKE OF COURSE, I’M THE PERSON SITTING UP HERE. I’M SPEAKING. I WANT OTHER STUDENTS TO DO THAT. EVEN THOUGH I TRY MY BEST, I CANNOT SIT HERE AND POSSIBLY REPRESENT EVERY SINGLE BACKGROUND BECAUSE I JUST DON’T KNOW. IT’S NOT WITHIN MY POWER. I’M NOT, LIKE, OMNIPRESENT, ALWAYS THERE, I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON. SO I WANT TO HEAR FROM MORE STUDENTS AND SEE MORE STUDENTS UP ON THE PODIUM SPEAKING. SO I’M TRYING TO GET MORE STUDENTS FROM — ANYTHING. IF THIS IS AN ISSUE, I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU. I WANT TO HEAR IT AND I WANT TO SEE IT. I ALSO WANT TO GO TO OTHER THINGS. LIKE THE PAST TWO WEEKS I WAS WITH WITH MS. DERENAK KAUFAX AND MR. MCELVEEN AND WE WENT TO THE HOMECOMING PARADE. IT WAS SO COOL. I WAS INVITED TO SPEAK AT AN INDUCTION SOCIETY. I WANT TO SEE THOSE. WHEN I’M THERE, STUDENTS ARE MORE OPEN TO, LIKE, OH, SINCE YOU’RE HERE, THERE’S THIS GOING ON. LIKE, YOU CAN DO THANE WAY. PHONE I’M NOT STANDING RIGHT THERE, I STILL WANT TO HEAR. SHOOT ME AN E-MAIL. A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE ME SOCIAL MEDIA. REACH OUT TO ME THERE. THERE’S NEVER GOING TO BE A TIME, LIKE, I DON’T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT THIS. I DO. EVERY TIME I WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT. AND FROM, LIKE, WHAT I’VE BEEN DOING BEFORE, I SUBMITTED MY FIRST FORM TOPIC WITH MS. EVANS, AND I WAS, LIKE, REALLY HAPPY ABOUT IT. WE SUBMITTED IT YESTERDAY. AND IT’S ABOUT HAVING TOWN HALLS AT EVERY SINGLE HIGH SCHOOL AND SECONDARY SCHOOL. SO THIS IS MODELED AFTER SOUTH COUNTY STUDENT COUNCIL, SEPARATE FROM THEIR CLASS OFFICE. WHAT HE WHAT THEY DID — I WAS THERE MY FRESHMAN YEAR. THEY HAD CALL — I’M NOT SURE IF THEY STILL HAVE IT. THEY HAD TWO — ADVISORIES. THEY WOULD HAVE TWO SWITCHING SCHEDULES. BUT EVERY MONTH AT LEAST ONCE THEY HAD A HOME ROOM AND WHAT THEY DID WAS REPRESENTED ONE HOME ROOM REP. AND EVERY TIME IT WAS THAT HOME ROOM WHICH WAS PROBABLY, LIKE, ONCE A MONTH, THEY’D SEND THE HOME ROOM REPRESENTATIVE TO THE CAFETERIA AND WOULD HOLD, LIKE, THE STUDENT COUNCIL. WHAT WOULD HAPPEN WAS THERE’S ABOUT FIVE STUDENTS WHO WERE, LIKE, ON THE BOARD WHO WOULD JUST RUN THE MEETINGS LIKE AND HAVE STUDENTS THERE TO — THIS IS A GENERAL ISSUE IN THE SCHOOL. HOW CAN WE FIX IT. I THOUGHT IT WAS REALLY VALUABLE. THERE’S USUALLY — THERE’S OFTEN AT LEAST ONE ADMIN IN THE ROOM. IT WASN’T LIKE — BECAUSE WITHOUT THE ADMIN, IT’S A GOSSIP CIRCLE. WITH THE ADMIN THERE, IT’S LIKE THEY’RE PUTTING ACTION TO WHAT THEY’RE DOING. I THOUGHT IT WAS WONDERFUL. EVERY TIME THEY’D START A MEETING AND THEY’D TALK ABOUT WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO ADDRESS THE ISSUES OR WHAT IS BEING DONE TO TERMINATES ISSUES. THIS IS ACHIEVEMENTIVE AND WHAT THEY’LL BE DOING. I WANT TO HAVE THAT AT EVERY SINGLE SCHOOL. WE’RE ACTIVELY TRYING TO HAVE IT AT LEE AND STILL IN THE WORKS. I WANT TO SEE WHAT WE CAN DO TO HAVE — LIKE EVERY SCHOOL HAS A LEARNING SEMINAR OF SOME FORM. THERE ARE DIFFERENT FORMATS. BUT I FEEL WITH THE HELP OF STAFF, WE CAN HELP IMPLEMENT IT. IN THE NEAR FUTURE, WHAT WE HAVE — WHEN WE HAVE A FORUM ON THIS, AND I’LL BE ABLE TO TALK WITH THE REST OF THE SCHOOL BOARD ON IT. I’M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT.>>THANK YOU.>>AND SO MOVING TO A DIFFERENT TOPIC I’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS WHOLE TIME ABOUT IMPLICIT BIAS. SO I JUST WANT TO PUT A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND TO WHY I’M PERSONALLY FOCUSED ON THIS AND WHY IT’S SO IMPORTANT. A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS. SO I LIKE TO START OFF LIKE AN EXAMPLE. I AT LOVE — A LOT OF MY FRIENDS. HAVE YOU EVER HAD SOMEBODY GIVE YOU SOME SORT OF COMPLIMENT LIKE I DIDN’T REALIZE YOU’D BE SO ARTICULATE. I DIDN’T REALIZE YOU’D BE SO SMART. AND AT FIRST YOU’D THINK IT — OH, IT’S A COMPLIMENT. THEY’RE CALLING ME SMART. YOU THINK ABOUT THE FIRST HALF, AND IT WAS I DIDN’T REALIZE. SO I — BEFORE YOU EVEN HAD SPOKEN TO THAT PERSON, THEY ALREADY HAVE AN IDEA HOW YOU’RE GOING TO BE. THEY’RE USING BASICALLY ALT EXTERNAL FACTORS TO FIGURE OUT HOW YOU ARE INTERNALLY. GROWING UP, I GOT A LOT OF THOSE. I GOT — I DIDN’T REALIZE YOU’D BE SO SMART. I DIDN’T REALIZE YOU’D BE SO SOCIABLE. AS A KID, I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT IT MEANT. I TOOK IT AS A COMPLIMENT BECAUSE I DIDN’T KNOW NO BETTER. GROWING UP, THAT WASN’T OKAY. GETTING THAT — I THINK A LOT OF IT WAS FROM TEACHERS, EDUCATORS. WHY IS THAT ALREADY IN YOUR HEAD WHEN YOU HAD MET ME. AND A LOT OF WHERE MY PASSION COMES FROM IS I COME FROM A FAMILY AND I HAVE THREE SIBLINGS, AND ALL OF THEM ARE JUST LIKE ME AND WE’VE ALL HAD UNIQUE STRUGGLES WITH EDUCATORS. SO ME AND MY SISTER IN MIDDLE SCHOOL, WE MOVED HALFWAY THROUGH THE YEAR TO A DIFFERENT SCHOOL. WE HAD A VERY ROUGH TIME. ONLY BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, EVERY NEW STUDENT HAS A NEW STUDENT STRUGGLE BUT I FELT — I’VE BEEN A NEW STUDENT MULTIPLE TIMES. THERE WAS A FOUR-YEAR PERIOD I WAS NEW EVERY YEAR. THIS ONE PART WAS, LIKE, THE HARDEST. BECAUSE WE FELT AS IF WE WERE NOT — WE DIDN’T FEEL VERY WELCOME. WE FELT ANALYZED, FELT MISSED — LIKE MISJUDGED AND LIKE WE WEREN’T WELCOME IN THE COMMUNITY. AND I FELT LIKE WE NEEDED TO KIND OF FIGHT TO BE SEEN AS SIMPLE STUDENTS AND NOT AS THREATS. AND I SPENT A LOT OF TIME — I WAS ABOUT, LIKE, 13 OPINION I SPENT A LOT OF TIME ANGRY. AND I FELT AS IF THE APINGER WAS A STRONG WASTE OF MY TIME AND I FEEL AS IF I WAS ABLE TO MOVE AWAY FROM THE SITUATION BUT A LOT OF STUDENTS AREN’T ABLE TO. I WAS ABLE TO MOVE SOMEWHERE I’M MORE COMFORTABLE IN A PLACE I’M USED TO AND A LOT OF STUDENTS AREN’T ABLE TO MOVE AWAY FROM WHATEVER IS CAUSING THIS KEENED OF STRESS, THIS ANGER. AND I FEEL AS IF IT’S IT WAS DISAPPOINTING, BECAUSE I HAVE VERY STRONG OPINIONS. I’M VERY PRIDEFUL OF OUR COUNTY BECAUSE I FEEL IT’S A WONDERFUL COUNTY. I’M UPSET THERE WAS A SORE SPOT IN MY EDUCATION BECAUSE OF THIS ONE INSTANCE. AND I FELT — I TALKED ABOUT MS. DERENAK KAUFAX THIS WEEK AND TOLD MER A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT MY STRUGGLE AT THIS POINT. IT WAS TOUGH BECAUSE I COULDN’T — IT HAS HARD WITH EDUCATORS, BECAUSE IT’S HARD FOR ME, BEING A STUDENT, YOU HAVE TO TEETER TO THER ON A LINE. LIKE AS I FEEL AS IF THIS EDUCATOR IS BEING DIFFICULT AND IT WASN’T EVEN JUST EDUCATORS. IT WAS ADMIN BACK AND FORTH. WHERE DO GOING TO? HOW DO I CONDUCT MYSELF? IT WAS STRESSFUL AS A STUDENT. STUDENTS SHOULDN’T HAVE TO GO THROUGH THAT. AND I KNOW THAT FAIRFAX COUNTY IS VERY DEDICATED TO HAVING THE BEST TEACHER AND ADMIN WE CAN HAVE. WITH ALL THE DEDICATION, SOMETIMES THINGS SLIP THROUGH THE CRACKS. I’M NOT SAYING SOME OF THESE TEACHERS ARE BAD TEACHERS, BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE A REACH. I DON’T THINK I CAN SAY — I FEEL AS IF ALMOST ALL MY TEACHERS WERE PRETTY — WERE GOOD TEACHERS. FEEL AS IF IN CERTAIN CASES SOME DIDN’T KNOW BETTER. IN THAT CASE, I STILL FEEL AS IF THEY SHOULD HAVE AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN — SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN MY RESPONSIBILITY. STUDENTS HAVE TO RETEACH A TEACHER. THERE SHOULD BE SOME SORT OF THING IN BETWEEN WHERE WE CAN HELP GET THEM TO UNDERSTAND. SO THAT’S ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT THAT’S WHERE MY PASSION COMES FROM. BECAUSE A LOT OF THINGS HAVE TO DO WITH HOW DO WE GIVE RESOURCES TO TEACHERS ON HOW TO DEAL WITH STUDENTS THEY MAY NOT UNDERSTAND. I THINK IT’S A LOT OF THINGS WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND AND WE NEED TO WORK WITH. THAT’S A LOT OF WHERE I’M COMING FROM. THAT’S MY BACKGROUND, WHERE MY PASSION IS FROM, TO GIVE BACKGROUND ON WHAT I’M TRYING TO ACHIEVE ON MY TIME HERE. EVERY TIME — MY FIRST TIME UP HERE, I SAID THAT EVERY THING I TALK ABOUT IS UNCOMFORTABLE AND EVEN I, LIKE I’M A PERSON OF COLOR AND I GET UNACCOUNTABLE TALKING ABOUT THIS. SO I CAN IMAGINE HOW IT FEELS TO PEOPLE UNFAMILIAR WITH THE SITUATION, HOW UNCOMFORT IT IS. WE STILL NEED TO TALK ABOUT THIS, BECAUSE THERE ARE STUDENTS IN OUR COUNTY AND THESE ARE STUDENTS THAT I’M REPRESENTING. I WAS SITTING AT A MEETING AND THIS — SOMETIME I GET A LITTLE SHOCK. LIKE SHE SAID THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS. AND I SAID, OKAY. IT IS A BIG DEAL. WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE WE’RE DOING IT PROPERLY. SO YEAH. BUT NOW WE CAN UNCLENCH A LITTLE BIT. BECAUSE I FEEL THAT’S THE TOUGHEST THING I’M PROBABLY GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT THROUGHOUT THIS ENTIRE YEAR.>>THANK YOU.>>SO TO MOVE ON FROM THAT, A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING MY WHOLE MATH THING. THE HOME MATH THING. I’LL ZOOM PAST THAT ONE. WE HAVE A CLASS ENCODED FOR US FOR BC CALC.>>OH, GOOD. [APPLAUSE]>>THE ONE THING I’M BRINGING UP ABOUT THAT IS THAT IT’S A BITTERSWEET THING BECAUSE I FEEL I’M GLAD THIS HAPPENED BUT ALSO STUDENTS IF I HADN’T BEEN UP HERE, I’M NOT SURE IF I WOULD HAVE GOTTEN THAT OPPORTUNITY. I WANT TO BE ABLE TO PUSH FOR THAT. AND TO CONTINUE TO, LIKE, MAKE SURE OTHER STUDENTS MAY HAVE THE SIMILAR OPPORTUNITIES I HAD. AND TO — LASTLY, I WANTED TO SAY, FOR ANYBODY WHO MAY WANT TO SPEAK ON ANYTHING, MAKE SURE NOT TO LET ANYBODY DAMPEN ANY PASSION YOU MAY HAVE ABOUT ANYTHING. THERE WILL BE PEOPLE WHO TRY TO CONVINCE YOU THAT WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY IS NOT IMPORTANT. THAT WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY IS NOT WORTH MENTIONING. AND YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO CHALLENGE THEM. BE PREPARED TO CHALLENGE THEM BACK. YOUR VOICE DOES MATTER. AND IF I HAD LET ANYBODY SAY WHATEVER I HAVE TO SAY DIDN’T MATTER, I WOULDN’T BE UP HERE RIGHT NOW. I WANT TO MAKE SURE THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY THAT EVERYONE KNOWS, MAKE SURE YOU GO OUT AND SAY WHAT YOU FEEL EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. NOW THIS IS THE PORTION OF THE MEETING — I CALL ON DR. BRABRAND FOR AN INTRODUCTION TO THE GOAL TWO CARING CULTURE REPORT.>>THANK YOU, CHAIRMAN CORBETT SANDERS. WE’RE EXCITED TO BRING THE BOARD THIS EVENING THE GOAL TO REPORT AS A REMINDER WE HAVE A STRATEGIC PLAN, AS YOU KNOW, THAT HAS FOUR GOALS. STUDENT SUCCESS, CARING CULTURE, PREMIERE WORKFORCE AND RESOURCE STEWARDSHIP. TONIGHT YOU’LL HEAR FROM THE ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF SPECIAL SERVICES ON GOAL 2, CARING CULTURE. I KNOW SHE AND HER TEAM ARE HERE. WE APPRECIATE ALL OF THEM COMING OUT. HER AND HER TEAM HAVE BEEN DOING AN OUTSTANDING JOB WORKING AND CHAMPIONING THIS GOAL FOR FAIRFAX COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS. SO MS. JOHNSON.>>GOOD EVENING. THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE GOAL TWO CARING CULTURE. THIS IS WORK OF MULTIPLE OFFICES AS THEY LEADERSHIP UP DOWN HERE FOR SUPPORT AND TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AT THE END OF THE PRESENTATION. THEY WORKED HARD OVER THE LAST TWO MONTHS TO PUT THIS TOGETHER. I THANK THE FOLLOWING DEPARTMENTS AND OFFICES FOR THEIR WORK ON THIS PRESENTATION AND REPORT. THIS IS PROBABLY THE GOAL REPORT WITH THE MOST COLLABORATION, INCLUDING THE DEPARTMENT OF SPECIAL SERVICES, OFFICE OF PROFESSIONAL LEARNING AND FAMILY ENGAGEMENT, HUMAN RESOURCES, FINANCE, OFFICE OF RESEARCH AND STRATEGIC IMPROVEMENT, AND INSTRUCTIONAL SERVICES. I NO I WASN’T TOO LONG AGO YOU SAW ME UP HERE PRESENTING THE LAST. IT WAS SEVERAL MONTHS AGO. WHILE I’LL BE DOING THE ENTIRE PRESENTATION TONIGHT, AGAIN, WE HAVE REPRESENTATION FROM EACH OF THE DEPARTMENTS AND OFFICES HERE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE AT THE END OF THE PRESENTATION. OUR WORK SESSION ON GOAL 2 IS NOVEMBER 14TH AND WE WILL HAVE FURTHER OPPORTUNITY FOR ANY OTHER DISCUSSION.>>YOU SAY MOVE 14TH?>>NOVEMBER 14TH. I CAN CHECK THAT DATE, MR. MOON, I BELIEVE. GOAL 2 HAS TWO OUTCOMES THAT FOCUS ON ENVIRONMENTS AND HEALTHY LIFE CHOICES. THE FIRST STATES ALL FCPS EMPLOYEES WILL DEM DEMONSTRATE CULLURAL RESPONSIVENESS WHEN SUPPORTING PEOPLE. THE SECOND OUTCOME IS HEALTHY LIFE CHOICES. FCPS WILL USE BEST PRACTICES TO ENABLE STUDENTS AND STAFF TO MAKE HEALTHY LIFE CHOICES. YOU’VE SEEN THIS SLIDE RECENTLY FROM THE RESOURCE STEWARDSHIP PRESENTATION SO I WON’T GO INTO DETAIL. AS A REMINDER, THROUGHOUT THE PRESENTATION YOU’LL SEE BAR GRAPHS THAT REPRESENT DATA, CLOGGER REPRESENTING PROGRESS. DARK TEAL IS THE TARGET. GREEN INDICATED LIMITED PROGRESS AND YELLOW, NO PROGRESS. WE’LL BEGIN THIS EVENING WITH WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT. YOU’LL SEE ON THIS SLIDE THE AREA WHERE PROGRESS IS MADE FOR THREE METRICS, STUDENTS FEELING RESPECTED AND INCLUDED IN SCHOOL AND STAFF FEELING PROGRESS AT WORK. WILE GO INTO MORE DETAIL IN A FEW SLIDE. PLEASE KEEP FIND THE EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT SURVEY WAS NOT ADMINISTERED DURING SCHOOL YEAR 18-19, SO NO DATA IS AVAILABLE FOR THIS REPORTING PERIOD. THE DATA FOR THIS — THE METRIC ALL STUDENTS FEEL RESPECTED AND INCLUDED AT SCHOOL CAME FROM THE TATE CLIMATE SURVEY AND INDICATES THERE WAS SOME IMPROVEMENT IN STUDENTS TO REPORT FEELING RESPECTED AT SCHOOL, WHICH HAS BEEN LINKED TO BETTER ACADEMIC OUTCOMES. IN SCHOOL 2018-19, PERFORMANCE IMPROVED SIX POINTS FROM THE PREVIOUS YEAR’S PERFORMANCE. PARTICIPATION IN THE STATE CLIMATE SURVEY. WHEN ADMINISTERED, THE STATE SELECTS WHICH SCHOOLS ARE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE. FOR SCHOOL YEAR 18-19, PERFORMANCE AS POACHING THE PERFORMANCE TAGGERRITY. THE OFFICE OF PROFESSIONAL LEARNING AND FAMILY ENGAMEMENT ADMINISTERED THE FAMILY ENGAGE SURVEY LAST STRING. 83% OF FAMILIES REPORTED FEELING RESPECTED AT SCHOOL. THE S RAY WAS ADMIN HE CERTIFIED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 18-19 AND THEREFORE BASELINE DATA NOT AVAILABLE PRIOR TO THIS YEAR. WHAT YOU SEE HERE IS STUDENT REFERRALS, DISAGGREGATED BY SUBGROUPS. THE METRIC ROUTE ILLIZED THE RATE OF REFERRAL PER HUNDRED STUDENTS FOR EACH SUBGROUP. THE TEAL BAR INDICATES A DECREASE IN REFERRALS FOR STUDENTS IDENTIFIED AS BLACK, WHICH IS THE PROGRESS WE ARE LOOKING FOR. THE GREEN BARS INDICATE LIMITED PROGRESS FOR HISPANIC ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED AND DISABILITIES BASED ON BASELINE PERFORM AN. YELLOW BARS INDICATE NO PROGRESS FOR ASIAN, WHITE, AND ENGLISH-LANGUAGE LEARNER STUDENTS. WHILE IMPROVEMENTS IN ONE SUBGROUP HAVE BEEN SEEN, THE RATE OF PROGRESS IS NOT SUFFICIENT TO REACH THE TARGET PERFORMANCE. THERE WERE SEVERAL ACTIONS UNDERTAKEN IN 18-19 TO TREYS AND RESPECT INCLUSION. FIRST, ALL STAFF CONTINUE TO ENGAGE IN CULTURAL PROFICIENCY TRAINING. THE FAMILY ENGAGEMENT S RAY WAS IMPLEMENTED AND DATA SHARED WITH PRINCIPALS INCLUDING COMMUNITY. THE SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT AND INNOVATION PLAN TEMPLATE WAS CHANGES TO ALIGN WITH STAT E-MAIL HE CAN PLAN. DEPARTMENTS AND OFFICE PS COLLABORATED WITH SCHOOLS TO DEVELOP GOALS TO SUPPORT A WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT. THE RETURN ON INVESTMENT SHOULD BE LINKED TO RESPECT IMPROVED ONE PERCENTAGE POINT FOR EVERY $95,000 INVESTED. THE TREND OF IMPROVEMENT INDICATES FCPS IS MAKING GOOD PROGRESS IN CREATING GOOD ENVIRONMENTS AND LIKELY TO MEET ITS TARGET IN 2020 WITH THE ACTIONS IT’S CURRENTLY PURSUING. SEVERAL ACTIONS TAKEN TO ADDRESS RESPONSIVENESS INCLUDE PILOTING OF THE PERSPECTIVE EXPERIENCE PROGRAM IN MIDDLE SCHOOLS. ALL MIDDLE SCHOOLS. THIS IS AN ONLINE MODULE FOR TEACHERS TO SUPPORT THE REDUCTION OF SUSPENSIONS WITH THE FOCUS ON REASONS BEHIND STUDENT MISCONDUCT. FCPS ALSO CONDUCTED A PRE HTTPS DISCIPLINE STUDY AND DEVELOPED THE DISCIPLINE POLICY AND PRACTICED BASED ON RECOMMENDATIONS. LASTLY, VARIOUS DEPARTMENTS, AGAIN, COLLABORATED WITH SCHOOLS TO INTEGRATE WORK INTO THEIR SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT AND INNOVATION PLANS. RETURN ON INVESTMENT ANALYSES WERE NOT UNDERTAKEN FOR THE ACTIONS BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT HE CAN ANDED TO HAVE HAD SUFFICIENT TIME TO IMPACK THE DATA CHECKED EARL WHERE I IN THE SCHOOL YEAR. THE RETURN ON INVESTMENT WILL BE COMPLETED IN FUTURE REPORTING AFTER COMPLETING A FULL YEAR OF REVISED DISCIPLINE RECOMMENDATIONS COUPLED WITH EQUITY AND CULTURAL PROFICIENCY PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT. FOR STRATEGIC CONCERNS, AND FUTURE CONSIDERATIONS FOR THE WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT, THE RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDE IMPLEMENTING ADDITIONAL EQUITY AND CULTURAL RESPONSIVENESS TRAIN HAD GONE ADDRESSES CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE DECISION MAKING WITH BEHAVIOR. THIS WILL BE IMPLEMENTED IN THE SPRING 2020. THIS TRAINING SPECIFICALLY TARGETS BEHAVIOR IN CLIMATE PRACTICES. FOR POLICY, IT’S RECOMMENDED FCPS IMPLEMENT THE RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE EQUITY PLAN FOR DISCIPLINE AND POLICY MANY PRACTICES PRESENT TO THE BOARD IN JUNE. BUDGET RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDE CONTINUE FUNDING DIVISION-WIDE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AROUND CULTURAL AWARENESS AND RESPONSIVENESS, CONSIDER FUND FOGGER COHORTS ALLOWING TEAMS OF STAFF MEMBERS TO WORK TO IMPROVE WELCOMING ENVIRONMENTS AND SUPPORT RECURRING FUNDING OF THE FAMILY ENGAGEMENT SURVEY BECAUSE IT IS A CRITICAL TO CONTINUE TO MEASURE OUR IMPACT WITH FAMILIES. OUR NEXT SECTION FOCUSES ON HEALTHY LIFE CHOICES. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THE DATA FROM THE METRICS ARE FROM NOVEMBER 2018 YOUTH SURVEY ADMINISTRATION. THEREFORE THE ACTIONS WERE ONLY IMPLEMENTED FOR A LIMITED AMOUNT OF TIME AND IN PLACE FOR ABOUT THREE MONTHS PRIOR TO STUDENTS TAKING THESE SURVEYS. AS WE REVIEW THE INFORMATION IN THE NEXT SET OF SLIDES, YOU WILL SEE THERE IS LIMITED OR NO PROGRESS ON A NUMBER OF METRIC RIBS IN THE SECTION OF THE REPORT. THE GOOD NEWS IS THERE WAS A, AGAIN, AN INCREASE IN THE NUMBER STUDENTS REPORTED BEING DRUG AND ALCOHOL FREE. HOWEVER WE CONTINUE TO BE AWARE OF THE CURRENT CONCERNS REGARDING VAPING. AND THOSE NUMBERS ARE CONCERNING GIVEN THE ILL EFFECTS NOTED ACROSS THE NATION. YOU MAY REFER TO THE NARRATIVE REPORT THAT SHOWS MORE SPECIFIC INFORMATION FOR SOME OF THESE AREAS. AS WE CONTINUE WITH HEALTHY LIFE CHOICES, YOU SEE THAT PROGRESS WAS MADE TOWARDS CHANGING THE NUMBER OF SCHOOLS WITH LOW RATES OF STUDENTS WITH FREQUENT ABSENCES, LIMITED TO NO PROGRESS WITH DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR REFERRALS BY LEVEL WE MET THE TARGET FOR EMPLOYEES WHO UTILIZED THE EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM. FOR 18-19, PERFORMANCE IMPROVED BY TWO PERCENTAGE POINTS FOR STUDENTS REPORTING BEING DRUG AND ALCOHOL FREE. 79% OF STUDENT REPORT BEING DRUG AND ALCOHOL FREE OPT NOVEMBER 2018 YOUTH SURVEY. THIS IS GOOD PROGRESS. DATA FROM THE VAPING QUESTION ON THE YOUTH SURVEY WAS ADDED TO THIS METRIC FOR THIS YEAR’S REPORTING. VAPEING PERCENTAGES ARE OF HIGH CONCERN GIVEN A RESPONSE RATE OF A LITTLE OVER 27% OF STUDENT WHO ARE REPORTING VAPING ON THE YOUTH SURVEY. THIS IS UNDER THE U.S. AVERAGE OF 33% BUT IS MAIMER CONCERN TO US. THE DATA IS THES THE STUDENTS VAPING COULD LIKELY ALSO BE ENGAGING IN USING OTHER SUBSTANCES AS WE DID NOT SEE AN INCREASE IN PERCENTAGES AFTER ADDING THE VAPING DATA TO THIS METRIC. THE METRIC STUDENTS WILL REPORT POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS WITH PEERS AND ADULTS SHOWED NO CHANGE. 85% REPORT. NATIONAL RESEARCH INDICATES STUDENTS REPORT THEY HAVE THREE OR MORE ASSETS OR PROTECTIVE FACT ARE.>>S ALSO REPORT THEY’RE BETTER ABLE TO MANAGE STRESS, MAKE BETTER CHOICES AND DEVELOP HEALTHY HABITS. EXAMPLES OF ASSETS INCLUDED ON THE SLIDE UP THERE. FCPS WILL BE CONTINUING TO ENGAGE PARENTS IN THE COMMUNITY AND INCREASING STUDENT ASSETS. THE NEXT INDICATOR MEASURES THE PERCENT OF STUDENT WHO’S REPORT THEY EXPERIENCED LOW TO MODERATE LEVELS OF STRESS, WHICH IS ASSOCIATED WITH HIGHER MOTIVATION, FOCUS, AND SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT. HIGHER LEVELS OF STRESS IN CONTRAST CAN INTERFERE WITH FUNCTIONING. THIS METRIC WAS DERIVED FROM THE YOUTH SURVEY QUESTION ASKING ON A SCALE OF ONE TO TEN WHERE ONE MEAN S LITTLE OR NO STRESS, AND TEN MEANS A GREAT DEAL OF STRESS, HO WOULD YOU RATE YOUR LEVEL OF STRESS IN THE PAST MONTH? YOU CAN SEE ON THE CHART 63% OF STUDENTS REPORTED A SEVEN OR LOWER ON THIS QUESTION. THIS IS A DECREASE FROM THE BASELINE BY ONE PERCENTAGE POINT. AS YOU’LL SEE FROM THE DATA ON THIS SLIDE, THERE IS NO IMPROVEMENTS IN HEALTHY HABITS, NUTRITION AND NUTRITION, SLEEP, AND EXERCISE. LESS STUDENTS ARE REPORTING THEY EAT FRUITS AND VEGETABLES WEEKLY. THEY EXERCISE AT LEAST 60 MINUTES FOUR TIMES A WEEK AND SLEEP LESS HOURS THAN THE BASELINE AND LAST YEAR. THESE PARTICULAR METRICS ARE EXCEPTIONALLY CHALLENGING AS THE SCHOOLS HAVE LITTLE INFLUENCE OVER SLEEP, NUTRITION, AND EXERCISE HABITS OF CHILDREN. THESE THREE BEHAVIORS ARE HIGHLY IMPACTED BY FAMILY, LIFESTYLE, AND HABITS. SOME OF THE 19 ACHIEVEMENTS FROM DRUG-FREE YOUTH INCLUDE COORDINATED EFFORTS DURING LAST YEAR TO CHANGE OUR DISCIPLINE APPROACH. TO ADDRESS VAPING, DR. BRABRAND AND THE DIRECTOR OF FAIRFAX COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT RECENTLY RELEASED A JOINT LETTER TO THE COMMUNITY ABOUT THE EFFECTS OF VAPING LONG AND SHORT TERM. IN ADDITION, THE BOARD SUPPORTED AN INCREASE OF SUBSTANCE ABUSE PREVENTION SPECIALISTS TO ADDRESS NEEDS AT ALL SCHOOLS WITH REGARDS TO SUBSTANCE USE TO INCLUDE VAPING. EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES HAVE BEEN INFUSED INTO HEALTH AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASSES. THE RETURN ON INVESTMENT ANALYSIS ARE NOT UNDERTAKEN BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT EXPECTED, AGAIN, TO HAVE SUFFICIENT TIME TO IMPACT THE DATA COLLECTED EARLY IN THE SCHOOL YEAR IN NOVEMBER. ROI IS PLANNED TO BE EXAMINED DURING THE NEXT REPORTING CYCLE. HERE WE REVIEW THE ACTIONS AND RETURN ON INVESTMENT FOR POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS WITH PEERS AND ADULTS. THE PROGRAM IS BROADENED AND INCLUDED MORE FCPS EVENTS SUCH AS THE SPECIAL EDUCATION CONFERENCE AND MENTAL HEALTH WELLNESS CONFERENCE AND OTHER COMMUNITY EVENTS. THE THREE TO SUCCEED CAMPAIGN WAS AN AWARENESS CAMPAIGN ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF INCREASING ASSETS IN YOUTH. THE FRIEND TO FRIEND ONLINE MODULE INCOGNITO WAS PILOTED IN THE TENTH GRADE CURRICULUM, PREPARING TO RECOGNIZE SIGNS OF DISTRESS, REACH OUT TO FRIENDS IF THERAPY CONCERNED, AND HELP IDENTIFY TRUSTED ADULT FOR SUPPORT. RETURN ON INVESTMENT ANALYSES WERE EXPLORED FOR THE THREE TO SUCCEED CAMPAIGN BUT WAS ASSOCIATED WITH MINIMAL COST AND AVAILABLE DATA COULD NOT PICK UP POTENTIAL IMPACTS OF THE FRIEND TO FRIEND PILOT. THE ACTIONS TAKEN FOR HEALTHY SOCIAL EMOTIONAL SKILLS INCLUDE THE ADDITIONAL OF SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS CAN AND SOCIAL WORKER CONDITIONS APPROVED THAT RESULTED IN FULL-TIME SCHOOL EXPLOSION OR SCHOOL SOCIAL WORKER IN ALL MIDDLE SCHOOLS AND EXPAND SUPPORT TO STUDENTS THROUGH YOUNG MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID TRAINING EXPANSION, ADDITIONAL MANNER CLUBS ADDED TO SCHOOLS, AND SIGNS OF SUICIDE PROGRAM WAS EXPANDED TO ALL MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOLS THROUGH A GRANT. WE ALSO TRAINED ADDITIONAL SCHOOL EXPLOSIONS AND SOCIAL WORKERS IN THE NEWLY DEVELOPED AND NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED TEEN MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID PROGRAM INCREASING AWARENESS OF MENTAL MELT DISTRESS AND HELPS TEACH HELP-SPEAKING BEHAVIORS. FOR ROI, NO IMMEDIATE IMPACT WAS EXPRESSED IN THE STUDENT SURVEY ASSOCIATED WITH THE $2.6 MILLION INVESTORRED IN MENTAL HEALTH DURING 18-19. AGAIN, THE ROI WILL BE ANALYZED NEXT YEAR TO DETERMINE WHETHER INCREASED MENTAL HEALTH STAFFING IMPACTED SOCIAL EMOTIONAL SKILLS ONCE IT’S IN PLACE FOR A YEAR. SEVERAL ACTIONS WERE UNDERTAKEN TO ADDRESS NUTRITION. BY JUNE 201882 SALAD BARS HAD BEEN ADDED TO THE LUNCH PROGRAM MEAL SERVICE. BREAKFAST IN THE CLASSROOM WAS EXPANDED TO 30 SCHOOLS AND THERE WERE CONTINUED EFFORTS TO PROVIDE FREE MEALS TO STUDENTS IN THE SUMMER MONTHS. IMPROVEMENTS IN NUTRITION HABITS COULD NOT BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE INVESTMENT OF $285,000 IN SALAD BARS. IT’S IMPORTANT TO KEEP IN MIND ONLY SIXTH GRADERS WOULD HAVE TAKEN A YOUTH SURVEY AND SALAD BARS ARE IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PROGRAMS. NOTED HERE IS AN INCREASE IN THE NUMBER SCHOOLS ARE LOW RATES OF FREQUENT ABSENCE TENTYISM FROM BASELINE. HOWEVER THERE IS A DECREASE FROM SCHOOL YEAR 17-18. AS A REMINDER, FREAK LINT ABSENT IS NOT AT SCHOOL MORE THAN 10% OF THE TIME. THE EXPANSION OF THE CHECK AND CONNECT PROGRAM, AN EVIDENCE-BASED PROGRAM SHOWN TO INCREASE THE ATTENDANCE RATES, REDUCE DROPOUTS AND INCREASE ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT. AN AWARENESS CAMPAIGN WAS IMPLEMENTED ON THE IMPORTANCE OF REGULAR SCHOOL ATTENDANCE AND RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM. FOR IMPACT OF RETURN ON INVESTMENT, IMPROVEMENT WAS OBSERVED IN THE SCHOOLS WHO UTILIZED CHECK IN CONNECT FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME. THERE WERE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH HUNDRED $38,000 TRAINING INVESTMENT OF OPERATING FUNDS IN THE PROGRAM WITH SOME PARTICIPATING SCHOOLS SHOWING MORE IMPROVEMENTS IN CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM. OUR NEXT SLIDE INDICATES LIMITED PROGRESS ON PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS WITH DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR BY LEVEL. SOME PROGRESS IS NOTED IN 18-19 PERFORMANCE WITH A SLIGHT DROP IN HIGH SCHOOL REFERRALS FROM BASELINE. HOWEVER, NO PROGRESS IS SEEN IN OVERALL PERFORMANCE FOR THE ELEMENTARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOLS. SIGNIFICANT ACTIONS IMPLEMENTED IN 18-19 INCLUDED THE EXPANSION OF THE IMPLEMENTATION OF A MULTITIERED SYSTEM OF SUPPORT, MTSS FRAMEWORK INCOME W B IN SCHOOLS WITH INCREASED TRAINING AND COACHING. THE SECOND BULLET ON THE SLIDE REALLY ADDRESSED PREVIOUS INFORMATION WE ADDRESS IN THE DISCIPLINE REFERRALS THAT HAVE IMPACT ON THIS METRIC AS WELL AND CONSIDERABLE WORK WAS DONE, AGAIN, AT REVISING THE SR&R BASED ON THE INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL RECOMMENDATIONS. FINALLY THE INTRODUCTION OF THE RULER IN 11 ADDITIONAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. LIMITED CHANGES IN DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR REFERRALS WAS RELATED TO THE INVESTMENT OF MTSS OF APPROXIMATELY $.3 MILLION FROM OPERATING FUNDS. HERE YOU CAN SEE WE EXCEEDED THE TARGET EMPLOYEES WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF WELLNESS RESOURCES. FAIRFAX COUNTY EMPLOYEESTON TO UTILIZE THE EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM WHICH IS PROMOTED AS A RESOURCE TO MANAGE WORK-LIFE BALANCE AT RATES THAT EXCEED THE PROVIDER’S TYPICAL UTILIZATION. THERE WERE 49% UTILIZATION BY STAFF INDICATING EMPLOYEES WERE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE BENEFITS THAT FCPS HAS TO OFFER. THIS WAS AN INCREASE OF 9% UTILIZATION COMPARED TO SCHOOL YEAR 17-18. ACTIONS TAKEN TO SUPPORT WELLNESS RESOURCES FOR STAFF INCLUDE THE EXPANDED AND ENHANCED EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM AWARENESS CAMPAIGN, INCLUDING OVERVIEW PRESENTATIONS FROM SCHOOLS, COMMUNICATIONS TO STAFF THROUGH E-MAIL AND MAILINGS, NEWS ARTICLES, AND THAT’S JUST TO NAME A FEW. STAFF UTILIZATION INCREASED 1% FOR EVERY $10,500 INVESTED IN THE EAP AWARENESS CAMPAIGN. OUR NEXT TO LAST SLIDE FOR FUTURE CONSIDERATIONS FOR HEALTHY LIFE CHOICES, RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THE HIGH FIDELITY IMPLEMENTATION OF MULTITIERED SYSTEMS OF FRAMEWORK FOR EACH SCHOOL. CONTINUE TOO SUPPORT IMPROVEMENTS TO THE STORYINGS AND RESPONSIBILITIES REGULATION AND CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THE POLICY THAT ADDRESSES THE EAP PROGRAM WHICH IS POLICY 4960. AND FINALLY, BUDGET RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDE REPLACEMENT OF THE CONTRACT FOR THE EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM WHICH IS FORECAST TO RESULT IN A COST SAVINGS. SUPPORT BUDGETING FOR RESOURCES NEEDED TO IMPLEMENT THE EQUITY PLAN FOR DISCIPLINE POLICY AND PRACTICES TO INCLUDE FUNDING REMAINING SUBSTANCE ABUSE PREVENTION SPECIALIST POSITIONS FOR SUPPORT IN ALL FCPS PYRAMIDS. FEW! ALL RIGHT. THAT CONCLUDES OUR PRESENTATION. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT. OUR WORK SESSION IS SCHEDULE FORD NOVEMBER 14TH WHERE WE LOOK FORWARD TO HAVING AN IN-DEPTH DISCUSSION EXPENSING QUESTIONS. WE DO WELCOME QUESTIONS IN ADVANCE.>>THANK YOU SO MUCH, MS. JOHNSON. I HAVE A NUMBER OF BOARD MEMBERS WHO WANT TO COMMENT ON YOUR EXCELLENT WORK. STARTING WITH — OH, NEVER MIND. MS. SCHULTZ TURNED IT OFF. OKAY. WE’LL CONTINUE ON TO MR. MCELVEEN.>>TO WITH MEET THE NEEDS OF STUDENTS?>>YES. CHANGES MADE DURING THAT SCHOOL YEAR. >>OKAY. SO WE HAVE WHAT? ABOUT 55-58 BARS LEFT TO INSTALL? I EXPECT NOT TO SEE THESE EXPENSES GOING FORWARD? OKAY. GREAT. THANK YOU.>>MISS KEYS-GAMARRA. >>THANK YOU. I WANT TO HIGHLIGHT A FEW THINGS THAT TO GIVE YOU A HEAD’S UP FOR THE WORK SESSION. I WANTED TO THANK OUR STUDENT FORGIVING US INSIGHT INTO WHAT SHE IS EXPERIENCED AND ONE OF THE POINTS IN YOUR REPORT WAS ALL STUDENTS WILL FEEL INCLUDED AND RESPECTED IN SCHOOLS. AND I APPRECIATE HER INSIGHT INTO HOW THAT TRANSLATES FOR HER EXPERIENCE AND SO HOPEFULLY WE’LL TAKE STEPS TO ADDRESS THACHL I KNOW WHAT SHE’S TALKING ABOUT. SO YOU MENTION A COUPLE THINGS, I THINK ON PAGE 29, MULTI TIERED SUPPORTS. AND IF YOU CAN GO TO — OKAY. 29. YES. IF IN THE WORK SESSION YOU CAN TALK ABOUT WHERE YOU THINK WE’RE STRONG AND WHERE YOU THINK WE CAN BOLSTER THAT. AND THEN, THE OTHER ONE, I BELIEVE YOU SAID CONTINUED SUPPORT FOR IMPROVEMENTS OF THE SR AND R, I LOOK FORWARD TO GETTING DATA OF ONE, THE IMPLEMENTATION OF WHAT WAS JUST PUT INTO PLACE AND SO WOULD BE LOOKING FOR WHERE WEAKNESSES ARE, WHERE WE CONTINUE TO BOLSTER. WE DID BEHAVIOR INTERVENTION TEACHERS NOT ENOUGH. IT DID SHOW PRINCIPLE WE’RE NOT JUST PUTTING IN RULES BUT TRYING TO PUT IN SUPPORTS SO I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS ON WHERE WE NEED TO DO THAT AND HOW TO BETTER, IN REVIEWING OUR CASES, MAKING SURE THAT WE’RE LISTING OUT FOR PARENTS AS WELL AS BOARD, WHAT STEPS WE’VE TAKEN PREVENTATIVE MEASURES WE HAVE TAKEN. >>YES. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. MISS MCLAUGHLIN? . >>I KNOW WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A WORK IS HES ON IT. I DID WANT TO SAY MISS JOHNSON, I APPRECIATED THE WAY YOU’VE BUILT THE REPORT AND LOOK FORWARD TO REVIEWING I THIS IS ALWAYS AN AREA IN PARTICULAR INTEREST OF MINE LOOKING AT THE MENTAL HEALTH AND WELL BEING THE STUDENTS AND EDUCATING THE WHOLE CHILD. I WANTED TO PUT ON EVERYBODY’S RADAR THINGS THAT ARE GOING TO BE OF CONCERN FOR ME. WE TALK ABOUTED A CARING CULTURE. WITHIN THE LAST YEAR, SO SCHOOL DIVISION WITH GOOD INTENTIONS OF WANTING TO ADDRESS ABSENTEEISM AND ALSO TO MAKE SURE THAT STUDENTS ARE ENROLLED IN PROPER SCHOOLS, BUT WE TALK ABOUT A CARING CULTURE WE’VE GOT TO THINK ABOUT HOW LETTERS TO HOME SPEAK TO OUR FAMILIES. AND SO FAMILIES THAT SHARED WITH ME, ESPECIALLY LAST YEAR ROLLING OUT THE CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM LETTERS THE TONE WAS VERY SEVERE AND FAMILIES WHOSE CHILDREN WERE OUT SICK IN THE FIRST MONTH OF SCHOOL WITH FEVER AND COLDS, THE LANGUAGE WAS NOT HELPFUL. SO I WANTED TO JUST MAYBE SIKH SEE IF YOU CAN GIVE US AN UPDATE ON MAYBE THE LETTER LOOKED DIFFERENTLY THIS YEAR THAN LAST YEAR? BECAUSE WHAT HAVE WE DONE TO MAKE SURE THING THAT’S WHEN WE’RE PRINTING TO FAMILIES HOW ARE WE COMMUNICATING ENROLLMENT? WE HAVE SENT LETTERS TO FAMILIES WHO ARE SAY TO THEM YOU’RE NOT ENROLLED IN THE RIGHT SCHOOL AND THAT WAS ALSO IN CASES QUESTIONABLE BUT TONE OF THE LETTER IS THAT YOU’LL BE GETTING YOUR CHILD OUT OF THE SCHOOL IN THREE DAYS. AND THAT IS NOT CARING CULTURE. I APPRECIATED YOU HAVE HAD A STRONG LEADERSHIP TEAM AND WORRY ABOUT IT IS THE FIRST WAY WE CAN COMMUNICATE TO FAMILIES AND CHILDREN ARE CHILDREN AND OUR ACTIONS, SOMEONE AT RISK FOR HARM WE NEED TO APPROACH IT WITH GREATEST OF CARE FOR KIDS AND WHAT HAS TO DO WITH THE SLIDE ON HEALTHY LIFE CHOICES AND DEALING WITH SLEEP. KIDS ARE REPORTING LESS SLEEP FROM 31% TO 28% GETTING EIGHT HOURS OR MORE. AND YOU NOTED CORRECTLY THAT THERE ARE CERTAIN THING THAT’S ARE WITHIN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM CONTROL AND IN FAMILY CONTROL. AND AS PARENT OF THREE RECENT GRADUATES THERE ARE THINGS WITHIN OUR CONTROL AND TEACHERS WERE TALKING ABOUT IT THIS EVENING DURING PARTICIPATION. VOLUME OF GRATED ASSESSMENTS, VOLUME OF HOME WORK, WILL ABSOLUTELY AFFECT SLEEP. SO, I KNOW WE CAN’T CONTROL WHAT PARENTS DO ABOUT BED TIME AND THAT, BUT WOULD LIKE TO SEE WHAT IS PREVENTING THEM FROM GOING TO SLEEP? I’M HEARING FROM FAMILIES THAT ARE STUDENTS WHICH HIGH ACHIEVING SCHOOL SYSTEM, WE HAVE KIDS WHO ARE TAKING THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRESENTATION TONIGHT. THANKS. >>MISS EVANS.>>THANK YOU. THAT IS A PERFECT SEGUE TO THE COMMENT I WANTED TO MAKE. I DO THINK THAT IT’S A LITTLE MISLEADING TO TALK ABOUT THE REDUCTION IN SLEEP BECAUSE I’VE GOT THE SURVEY IN FRONT OF ME. IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED WHEN WE WENT TO LATER HIGH SCHOOL START TIMES THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT HAPPENED AT THE SKY SCHOOL LEVEL AND MIDDLE SCHOOL LEVEL. IN 2014 WE HAD EARLY START TIMES. NUMBER OF 12TH GRADERS THAT GOT EIGHT HOURS OR MORE OF SLEEP 18.4%. BY 2016 UP TO 16.9% SO ABOUT TWO AND A HALF POINTS BETTER. FOR 10TH GRADERS 22.6%. BY 2018 UP TO 27.3%. SO THAT IS NEARLY 5%AGE POINTS HIGHER. AND SO AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL LEVEL THAT WENT ENTER TO 7:30. AND 8TH PRADERS ARE THE CHANGE NUMBER OF KIDS THAT GOT EIGHT HOURS OF SLEEP WAS 53.4% AND OUR MIDDLE SCHOOLERS ARE NOT GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP. A LOT OF IT, THERE ARE HOME WORK LOADS THAT ARE SIGNIFICANT, TOO. BUT THE START TIMES WHERE KIDS HAVE TO BE ON A BUS AT 6-SOMETHING IN THE MORNING. THAT IS NOT GOOD FOR THEM. WE’D LIKE IT TO BE CLOSER TO 100% THAN ANY NUMBERS BUT STILL, FROM 22.6% SO I DO THINK THAT THAT WILL BE SIGNIFICANT. AND IF WE ATTACK THAT START TIME. WHICH IS THEN PROBLEMATIC. I HAD A QUESTION FOR YOU WHCHLT I AM LOOKING AT THE MUMS I’M SEEING 30.8%. LOOKING AT PAGE 119 SO I’M, AND IT SAYS IT, WELL, IT IS SHOWING IT DOING FROM PERFECT WORK SESSION I WOULD LIKE TO FIND OUT WHY IT’S WHAT I’M SEEING ON PAGE 19. I ASK THAT WHEN WE HAVE THIS CONVERSATION, WE CAN A FOLLOW ON MOTION AND SAID WE’D LIKE TO BRING BACK OPTIONS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. AND SO, WE TALKED ABOUT THE STRESS OF COURSES AND WE’RE SEEING STUDENTS WHO SEEM TO BE OVERLOADED AND OVERWHELMED AND THAT IS SOMETHING ELSE I’D LIKE TO DISCUSS. I DON’T KNOW IF HAVE YOU ANSWERS HOW. WE CAN DISCUSS IT.>>NO. >>AND. >>MR. MOON?>>HAPPY TO MEET WITH YOU SEPARATELY IF YOU LIKE. >>SLIDE NUMBER TEN? THIS IS PAGE TEN. AND WHAT IS IN THE BOX, PROGRESS FOR BLACK STUDENTS AND LIMITED PROGRESS FOR ECONOMIC STUDENTS AND LOW PROGRESS FOR ER STUDENTS. >>CORRECT. YES. >>LOOKING AT GRAPHS PROGRESS TO 18?>>YES. >>THEN, YOU SEE HISPANIC, 12 BASE LINE. THEN, TEN. YOU CALL THAT LIMITED PROGRESS. SO I’M TRYING TO UNDERSTAND WHY THAT IS SO, AND ANOTHER QUESTION I HAVE IS THIS. THIS IS A INTRIGUING. HALF STUDENTS ARE HISPANIC. HALF HISPANIC ARE ER STUDENTS. WHEN YOU SEE LESS PROGRESS BUT STILL PROGRESS. AND SOMEHOW, HERE, THERE IS NO PROGRESS AND I WAS TRYING TO FIND THAT IN IN THE REPORT. AND IF YOU CAN SEND ME THOSE NUMBERS SO I CAN HAVE A LOOK BEFORE NOVEMBER 14TH AND SEND YOU QUESTIONS.>>SO THANK YOU. MY DATA AND A LOT OF QUESTIONS AND THIS BRINGS ME TO TEARS. SOME HAS TO BE DONE ABOUT THIS. A STUDENT WITH DISABILITIES IS 6.9% TIMES TO BE DISCIPLINED THAN AN ASIAN STUDENT, FOUR TIME AS LIKELY AS A WHITE STUDENT. 1.7 TIMES FOR ELL STUDENT AND SO ON. AND THIS IS IS NOT, AND I WOULD ASK ABOUT BOYS VERSES GIRLS. AND I CAN BET YOUR BIPY WHAT NUMBERS ARE. SO IF YOU’RE A BOY WITH YOUR DISABILITIES, IF YOU’RE REFERRED INTO DISCIPLINE, TWO THINGS NEED MOOEDLY HAPPEN. YOUR ATTENDANCE IS AFFECTED FROM OUR DATA AND GRADES GO DOWN. AND KIDS THAT CAN LEAST LIKELY AFFORD TO BE IN A SITUATION WHERE THERE IS A REFERRAL INTO DISCIPLINE ARE THE KIDS ALREADY STRUGGLING WITH DISABILITIES. HE HEARD OF TEACHERS STRUGGLING TO MEET THOSE SITUATIONS AND I PERSONALLY HORRIFIED TO LISTEN TO TEACHERS I KNOW STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES ARE PERFORMING AT ROCK BOTTOM OF ACHIEVEMENT AND MOST HIGHLY AFFECTED BY DISCIPLINE AND SOMETHING HAS GOT — WE’VE GOT TO HAVE SOME SLIDE 17 PLEASE? ON SKILLS, AND WHEN I DO TOWN HAULS I’LL TALK TO THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS IN THE FALL. AND THEY ARE STRESSED, BEYOND BELIEF. AND WE MADE PROGRESS AND SOME THING THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDED INTO THIS AS PEE TEN SHALL TARGET TO TALK ABOUT WAS ONLY CHANGING GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS WE HAD OVERLAID BEYOND THE STATE AND TO WATCH WHETHER OR NOT THERE ARE PREFERENCES THERE. AND YOU KNOW THAT DOESN’T SOLVE THE PROBLEM. AND WE ARE NOT ADDRESSING STUDENT STRESS AND EVERYBODY IS COMPETING AND MAKING ASSUMPTIONS OF WHAT THEY NEED AND IT IS A WELL THAT KEEPS CHURNING THE SAME THING AND WE’RE NOT DOING ANYTHING DIFFERENTLY. THIS I’M DEALING WITH A FAMILY SITUATION OF A FORMER STUDENT WHO WE LOST WHO WAS A FRIEND OF MY SON’S. THAT IS FROM A FAMILY SITUATION THAT WAS NOT HEALTHY. IF THIS IS OVERFLOWING INTO SCHOOLS, STUDENTS CAN’T ACHIEVE. THEY CANNOT ACHIEVE UNDER STRESS. THEY CANNOT NAVIGATE TO A SUCCESSFUL AND HEALTHY CITIZEN WHO ARE, YOU KNOW CONTRIBUTING WHETHER GO TO COLLEGE AND ENTER THE WORK FORCE. AND SO AND THIS THIS IS WHAT OUR JOB IS, TO PRODUCE HEALTHY, PRODUCTIVE ETHICAL AND ENGAGED CITIZENS, AS GRADUATES. WE’VE GOT TO DECIDE THIS IS AN URGENT SITUATION AND. >>I’LL TAKE A MOMENT AND LOOK FORWARD TO A ROBUST DISCUSSION ON NOVEMBER 14TH. AND WHEN LOOKING AT DATA, I’M WONDERING GOING FORWARD TO WHAT IS MENTIONED TONIGHT, DIFFERENT TYPES OF CHALLENGES AND SECOND PIECE OF THAT IS TO GET A QUARTERLY REPORT OVER THE SUMMER AND MADE GREAT HEAD WAY IN AT LEAST LAYING OUT A PROGRAM IF IT ENDS WE KNOW IT’S ENDING SOON. WE NEED TO NOT HAVE ANOTHER TWEAK. SECONDLY YOU TALK ABOUT OUR SUBSTANCE ABUSE COUNSELLORS, WE HAVE SIX. WE KNOW THERE IS A DECREASE IN DRUG USE AND THERE IS A 27% INCREASE IN VAPING AND THIS IS SERIOUS, FOLKS. I WELCOME THE LANGUAGE INTRODUCED INTO LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES BUT WE NEED TO BE VERY INTENTIONAL IN HOW WE ADDRESS THE VAPING EPIDEMIC HERE IN FAIRFAX COUNTY. AND THAT BEGS A QUESTION ARE SIX ENOUGH? AND THIS IS AN AREA GOING BACK TO DISPROPORTIONALITY AND DISPLAIN, WHETHER OR NOT WE HAVE TO DO MORE AND WHAT DO BY WE NEED TO DO AND SEE HIGHEST LEVELS. MY LAST PIECE IS I LOOK FORWARD TO A VERY PROI BUST DISCUSSION ABOUT HOW TO PROVIDE GREATER SUPPORTS. WE NEED TO BE INTENTIONAL WITH THAT AS WELL. I HAVE ONE TABLE THIS AND THEN WE’RE GOING TO GO THROUGH THE NEXT ORDER OF BUSINESS. I WANT TO SPEAK OUT ABOUT MY SENSE OF WHAT THE CITIZEN PRESENTATIONS WERE FROM SPEAKING THERE VERSES A CONCEPT OF A CARING CULTURE. A FORMER TEACHER FELT LIKE SHE WAS FORCED TO RETIRE EARLY. SHE DESCRIBED ANOTHER AND FEELING LIKE THERE IS FEAR THEY CAN’T ASK FOR HELP AND SO WHAT I WOULD LIKE DR. BRABRAND, ON MONDAY, MAYBE YOU CAN ADDRESS AND WHAT THESE FOLKS TALKED ABOUT TONIGHT AND THAT IS SOMETHING I BROUGHT THAUP WE HAVE TO KEEP LOOKING FOR OTHER WAYS TO IMPROVE THE MORALE OF OUR TEACHERS AND CULTURE WITHIN SCHOOLS AND WE CAN’T FORGO THE COMPENSATION PIECE. THAT IS IMPORTANT AND WE NEED THAT AND GIVE OURSELVES A LOOK ON THAT GIVEN PRESENTATION WE HEARD TONIGHT FROM UNIONS AND INDIVIDUAL TEACHERS SO THIS IS MORE OF A COMMENT. I DON’T KNOW WHAT REACTS AND ON MONDAY I’D LIKE TO HEAR SOMETHING.>>PART OF HAVING PUBLIC HEARING IS TO HEAR VOICES FROM THE SYSTEM AND WE NEED TO LISTEN TO VOICES. AND IT’S IMPORTANT TO HEAR THOSE VOICES AND THEN, USE DATA. THIS IS WHAT WE’VE BEEN TRYING TO DO IN THIS WE NEED TO BETTER UNDERSTAND WHAT WE CAN DO TO ADDRESS THEM. AND ONE THING I’VE ENCOURAGED THE TEACHER ASSOCIATIONS TO DO IS TO BRING CONCERNS TO US. AND IT’S GREAT TO HEAR IT HERE. WE HAVE SOMETHING CALLED 45-10 WE ARE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO BREAK THE CIRCLE OF BEING COMFORTABLE SHARING IT HERE BUT HOW TO BRING TO ADMINISTRATION TO HELP RESNOFL A RESTORE TIFF WAY, CONCERNS BROUGHT? SOME PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO STEP FORWARD BECAUSE THEN THERE IS A WORRY OF THE IMPACT SOMEONE’S JOB OR WORK PLACE ENVIRONMENT. AND IF WE NEED TO WORK TO BREAK THE CYCLE AND I’M COMMITTED TO DOING THAT AND I KNOW WHERE STAFF IS, TOO. THERE IS A TEACHER SHORTAGE. MONEY GETS TEACHER INTEREST BUT RESEARCH SAYS WORKING CONDITIONS ARE WHAT KEEP TEACHERS IN SCHOOLS. AND SO, ONE OF THE THINGS WE’RE DOING MORE NOW IS PAYING ATTENTION TO NOT JUST PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR TEACHERS BUT DEVELOPMENT FOR PRINCIPLES AND A LOT OVER TEN YEARS AS THIS BOARD KNOWS A LOT OF CUTS WERE AROUND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR OUR SCHOOL LEADERS AND WE’RE BEGINNING TO REENGAGE WITH MORE LEADERSHIP TRAINING TO HELP NAVIGATE WE WANT TO HAVE HIGH EXPECTATIONS. IT’S THE FIRST THING IN OUR PLAN AND NEED TO DO IT IN AN ENVIRONMENT THAT IS RESPECTFUL AND TRUSTFUL. I BELIEVE THAT WE’VE BEEN TRANSPARENT AS ANY SYSTEM HAS OPINION AROUND PUTTING THE DATA IN. WE NEED TO ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT IT WHICH YOU’RE DOING AND I WANT TO CONTINUE TO PARTNER IN WILL WITH THESE ASSOCIATIONS TO BREAK THE CYCLE. BECAUSE IT’S NOT HELPFUL FOR SYSTEM. AND IT’S NOT HELPFUL FOR INDIVIDUAL TEACHERS WHO FEEL THIS WAY. AND I DON’T BELIEVE THAT OUR PRINCIPLES AND SYSTEM LEADERS WANT THAT KIND OF CULTURE SO THAT IS GREAT AND TIER ONE SORT OF THAT UNDERSTANDING THIS AND THIS IS WHAT WE’RE SEEING WITH STAFF AND REPRESENTATIVES. WHAT IS IT? WHAT ARE WE TRYING TO SAY HERE? WHAT TO PAY FOR EVERYONE. >>ONE OTHER ITEM I THINK THE BOARD AND COMMUNITY WOULD BE INTERESTING TO KNOW, IT’S EXISTED AND WE’RE RESHAPING THAT THIS YEAR AROUND PROBLEMS AND AND PRACTICE. THAT IS WHAT WHAT ARE THOSE PROBLEMS AND I THINK STARTING TO DO ONE OF OUR THEORYS OF ACTION IS . >>I THINK THERE CONTINUES TO BE SOMETHING THAT IS IMPLEMENTED RECENTLY SO WE NEEDED A REPORT AND WE’RE DOING THAT TO ALIGN WITH BUDGET SO WE CAN SEE PROBLEMS AND CAN MOVE FORWARD AND KNOW WHEN IT’S OUR TURN, WE’RE WORKING WITH HIM TO DEVELOP THIS BUDGET AND HE’LL PUT IT OUT AND WE’LL LOOK AT IT. WE’LL KNOW BECAUSE WE’LL HAVE HEARD REPORTS TO ENSURE THAT WHERE THERE IS NEED FOR IMPROVEMENT SO I THANK YOU FOR THIS AND THIS WORK IS WORKING AND WILL CONTINUE. THANK YOU. AND I THINK THAT SOME OF THOSE STEPS I DO WANT TO PREPARE. I’M NOT BEING THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE METRIC AND WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO MEASURE DEMONSTRATE. AND WHAT I MEAN BY THAT IS AND WE’RE MEASURING IT BASED ON REPORTING LOW LEVELS OF STRESS. AND THERE IS A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THIS ROOM WHO ARE TRAINED EXPERTS ON HAVING SKILLS. IF YOU’RE OVERWORKED AND OVERTAXED YOU’RE GOING TO BE STRESSED SO I’M NOT SURE, AGAIN, HOW TO DO THE METRIC TO THE MEASURE BUT THAT IS ONE I’M STRUGGLING WITH. >>WE AGREE. AND ARE HAVE IDEAS ABOUT COPING SKILLS AND WHAT COPING SKILLS ARE YOU USING? SO WE AGREE. >>I WANT TO SAY ONE THING, TOO, WE AGREE AND MAYBE START CAN BLEED AS WE TALK ABOUT SOME OF WHERE WE THINKED THI WE’D WANT TO GO AS BY TWEET BECAUSE BRINGING YOU THESE REPORTS THIS IS PART OF THE REALITY. SOME YOU HEARD BACK IN THE SPRING. IT’S TO ALIGN THE REPORTING PRIOR TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A BUDGET THAT YOU HAVE TO APPROVE. SO YOU’RE NOT SEEING RESULTS AFTER BUT A BUDGET IN LINE WITH THE PLAN. THE GOALS SHOULD BE REPORTED OUT ON THE PLAN. THE PLAN SHOULD ALIGN TO BUDGET REQUEST SO IN THIS YEAR OF TRANSITION, YOU LEARN ABOUT IMPLEMENTATION DURING IMMREGS TAGS AND THERE MAY BE TWEAKS SO THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THAT UP. WE’LL WORK ON HAVING IDEAS TO SHARE TO SOME DATE INDICATORS HERE.>>THANK YOU. AND TO ECHO HERE TONIGHT THAT WE APPRECIATE YOUR BRINGING A COLLECTIVE VOICE TO TALK ABOUT WHAT WE KNOW IS IMPORTANT WHICH IS WORKING CONDITIONS AND PEOPLE HEALING. THEY WANT TO STAY AND BUILD THEIR CAREERS.>>THE GOAL WILL BE DISCUSSED AT NOVEMBER 14TH WORK SESSION AND SCHEDULED FOR DECEMBER 5TH. THIS IS THE PORTION OF THE MEETING WHERE THE BOARD WILL CONFIRM AUCTIONS REGARDING ISSUES DISCUSSED IN CLOSED MEETING. MAY INCLUDE STUDENT DISCIPLINARY MATTERS AND WILL MAKE SEVERAL MOTIONS TO CONFIRM THE RECOMMENDED ACTIONS. I WILL LET EVERYBODY KNOW WE’LL RETURN TO CLOSED SESSION AFTER THIS MEETING TO HANDLE ONE LAST ITEM. WITH THAT, I CALL ON MISS HYNES FOR A MOTION. >>I MOVE THE TEACHER IDENTIFIED IN CLOSED MEETING BE DISMISSED AND RECOMMENDATION TO REVOKE THE TEACHING LICENSE BE FORWARDED TO SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION AT VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION.>>AS DISCUSSED IN CLOSED.>>THANK YOU.>>SECONDED BY — MISS PALCHIK.

AND WHEN WE DO THAT, I’M HOPEFUL WE’LL HAVE SUPPORT TO MOVE FORWARD. >>THANK YOU. >>I WANT TO BRING AND MAKE COLLEAGUE AS WARE FOR NUMBER 11 THAT L McELVEEM WROTE ABOUT E CIGARETTES THAT IS NOT GOING TO BE IN THE PROGRAM BUT DETAILS WE GOT FROM THE HUMAN SERVICES ISSUES PAPER AND NUMBER 11 IS RANG WAJ MATCHING SUPERVISORS IN THE LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM AND THAT PROPOSAL. I WANTED YOU TO KNOW HE GOT MORE BACKGROUND EDUCATION AS A RESULT OF READINGS. OTHERWISE, A AGREE WITH MR. McELVEEN THAT THESE 11 PROPOSALS FOR US TO BE ABLE TO HAVE CONVERSATIONS I FIND LANGUAGE BEING PROPOSED STRAIGHT FORWARD. >>THANK YOU RESEARCH.>>YOU FOR WORK ON THIS. I KNOW THAT YOU HELPED US YOU WANTED TO TO TELL COLLEAGUES WHY I THINK THIS IS NECESSARY AS AN ADDITION. THE FIRST AMENDMENT HERE IS ASKING THE STATE TO ROW VIED ALONG THE LINES OF WHAT THEY’D DO NOW AND THEY DON’T ALWAYS IT STANDS TO REASON THAT WE NEED TO TAKE A LOOK AT NUMBERS WE’RE GETTING AND THIS IS A HIGHER BAR PARTICULARLY WHEN ONLY HERE FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. WE’RE ASKING IF THIS THIS IS A CASE INCREASING NUMBERS OF STUDENTS IN THINGS, GENERALLY I TEND TO AGREE WITH. OTHER THINGS, DO NOT. AND WHEN I TALK TO PEOPLE IN RICHMOND THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT WE WANT. WE COME WITH A MASSIVE LEGISLATIVE PACKAGE AND I LONG FOR A DAY WHERE WE DECIDE ON A HANDFUL OF PRIORITIES. OKAY? THIS IS A WORD SALAD FROM SOLAR PANEL TO MENSTRUAL EQUITY. WE’RE ALL OVER THE PLACE AGAIN. WE KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. VIRGINIA IS THE 40TH STATE IN FUNDING. MOVE US THROUGH. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THE CHANGES. YOU KNOW? INCREMENTAL. AND WE NEED TO HAVE A GIANT GRAPH SAYING FIX LCI AND FUND AND TO THROW MORE, SORRY, HOW MANY SPONSORS OF BILLS DO WE HAVE AT THIS POINT?>>YOU DON’T HAVE ANY BECAUSE YOU DON’T — >>DO WE HAVE THOSE INTERESTED IN SPONSORING THOSE?>>THERE ARE A NUMBER OF PEOPLE WE HAVE TALKED TO. >>OKAY. I’M GOING TO ABSTAIN FROM THIS PACKAGE.>>VERY A TO BACK BUT I BELIEVE OTHER PEOPLE AT THE TABLE WANT THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK. AND THAT INCLUDES MYSELF. FIRST OFF MR. MOLLOY THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK ON THIS. IF I REMEMBER WE HAVE DISCUSSION THAT EVENING AND CAME TO THE TABLE AT A WORK SESSION ON WHAT IS THAT? OCTOBER 4TH SNJ. >>YES. >>AND THE WAY WE LOOK AT THIS IS THIS IS OUR LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM AND SIMILAR TO SHARING THE PRIORITY WHICH ARE NUMBER ONE PRIORITY. >>THIS IS A ONE PAGER. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>AND SO WHEN LOOKING AT OUR PROGRAM HOW MANY DIFFERENT COMMITTEES MEET SIMULTANEOUSLY IN RICHMOND AT A TIME?>>THERE IS ONE COMMITTEE THAT DIDN’T HAVE A BILL TO HAVE A DEGREE OF IMPACT ON FCPS IN SOME WAYS. AND. >>SO THIS PROGRAM MAY BE APPROACHED FROM MULTIPLE COMMITTEES AND STATES MAY AB APPROACHING IN DIFFERENT OR MULTIPLE COMMITTEES? >>THAT IS CORRECT.>>SO THAT MEANS YOU’RE ONE PERSON. HOW MANY LOBBYISTS DO WE HAVE?>>I HAVE AN HOURLY EMPLOYEE BUT WE’RE IT. >>IT WOULD BE HELPFUL AND I HAVE HEARD FROM MY COLLEAGUES THAT GO TO RICHMOND AS PART OF OUR STATE DELEGATION THEY FIND OUR LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM HELPFUL. HAVE YOU HEARD COMMENTS?>>WELL, THEY’RE KIND TO ME. I’M NOT SURE THEY’D SAY NEGATIVE THINGS TO ME. BUT YES. WE DO HEAR THAT IT’S A USEFUL RESOURCE. AND NOT ONLY FOR DELEGATION BUT FOR OTHER DIVISIONS. >>I CAN PROMISE YOU CRITICAL MEMBERS ARE FAVORABLE ABOUT THIS DOCUMENT. SO, I APPRECIATE IT VERY MUCH. I DID WANT TO ENCOURAGE MY COLLEAGUES TO ADOPT THE OMNIBUS MOTION BECAUSE THIS IS A THOUGHTFUL PRODUCT. I’M PROUD OF THE WORK THAT YOU WORKING WITH MR. McELVEEN AND MISS MCLAUGHLIN PUT EFFORT INTO PULING TOGETHER A COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM AT AN EARLIER STAGE THAN IN THE PAST IT’S INFORMATION ONLY. AND IF SO THIS IS A GOOD THERE ARE LOUISIANA TO PILOT READING COMPREHENSION TESTS ONLY HAVE CONTENT THAT HAS BEEN TAUGHT IN SCHOOL. THAT IS A PLAYING FIELD. SO IF HAVE YOU A STORY ON A READING TEST IT IS HISTORICAL FICTION. WHEN I HAVE SPOKEN TO OFFICIALS IN VIRGINIA AND TO SECRETARY OF EDUCATION OVER THE SUMMER IT SEEM TZ ME WE’RE NOT PRO BUST IN HOW WE REVIEW BIAS IN OUR STATE TEST. AND I’M LOOKING UP NOW AND I DON’T SEE PERFECT BRABRADN AND WHAT WOULD HAVE GIVEN ME MORE COMFORT AS A BOARD MEMBER IS BECAUSE HE SAID IT BEST. WE’RE THE LARGEST SCHOOL SYSTEM IN THE COMMON WEALTH OF VIRGINIA. AND WHEN THIS IS A FLURRY OF BILLS. WE’D HAVE BENEFITTED FROM JUST HAVING STAFF SAYING THAT IS THE BEST PRACTICE AND THAT MAKES YOU ALL LOOKING LIKE A KNOWLEDGEABLE BOARD TO HAVE THAT IN YOUR LEGISLATIVE PACKAGE. SO I DON’T LIKE THE IDEA WE’VE GOT 11 GOOD THINGS HERE. SOME ARE CLEAR AND OTHERS MORE FAMILIAR TO US. THE BALANCE WOULD HAVE OPINION FOR SUPERINTENDENT AND LEADERSHIP TEAM TO SAY TO US WOULD BE A MATTER IF YOU FILED IT, WE GOT IN.>>DO YOU WANT TO POSE A QUESTION SOME SINCE HE’S NEW RETURNED TO THE TABLE? SO. >>AMENDMENTS. >>I UNDERSTAND MR. MOLLOY IS A LOBBYIST SO MY POINT IS MAYBE MR. MOLLOY MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP NOT JUST FOR ME OR ANYONE WATCHING THIS OR MY COLLEAGUES WHEN YOU DRAFT THESE DO YOU RUN THEM BY THE SUPERINTENDENT IN TEAM TO SAY DO YOU HAVE ANY INSTRUCTIONAL CONCERNS WITH THIS LANGUAGE? OR ARE YOU JUST TRYING TO HELP US ON THEN I WOULD SAY DR. BRABRAND WOULD NOT LIKE THIS THIS, IF WE PROPOSE AMENDMENTS HE SAYS I DON’T THINK WHAT IS TAKING IT DOWN THE BEST PATH TO HAVE THAT LANGUAGE IN LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM, SOMEONE HAS TO BE PROVIDING IN MY MIND, THE EXPERTISE TO WELL INTENTIONED BOARD MEMBERS. IN PART OF MY ROLE TAKING REQUESTS FOR BOARD MEMBERS AND OTHER TO AGGREGATE THEM INTO LEGISLATIVE LANGUAGE. PART OF THE PROCESS OF CREATING THIS LANGUAGE FOR YOUR PROGRAM IS I DO CONFER WITH STAFF AS PART OF THE PROGRAM. THE LANGUAGE WENT THROUGH MULTIPLE ITERATIONS AND WENT BACK AND FORTH IN TERMS OF MAKING THAT LANGUAGE FIT WHAT THE NATIONAL DISCUSSION ON SLIGHT STUDENTS LOOKS LIKE. WITH ITERATIONS WE HAVE LANGUAGE CORRECT IN TERMS HAF WE’RE ASKING THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO CONSIDER SO THAT EVERYONE OF THESE WITH EXCEPTION OF THE LAST ONE THAT YOU BROUGHT, THAT IS GOING THROUGH YOU OUR CONVERSATION WITH STAFF.>>I THINK MR. MOLLOY YOU ANSWERED MY QUESTION WHICH IS I DO PREACH THE BOARD IS REPRESENTING THIS BOARD IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE. WE WANT OUR PROGRAM TO BE THOUGHTFUL AND AND RESEARCH, EVIDENCE BASED AND REFLECTIVE OF THIS GREAT COUNTY. SO IF YOU LOOKED DO YOU HAVE ANY ADJUSTMENTS THAT SHOULD GIVE US PAUSE?>>IN CONCERNS. DIGET TO CONFIRM TO SEE THE DRAFT BEFORE BEING PRESENTED TO YOU. I’D SAY ANOTHER THING AND IT’S NOT A HOT SEAT TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. ONE OF THE THINGS THE BOARD ASKED ME TO DO IS GET TO TO YOU SOONER. AND WE’RE WORKING BACK FROM SUMMER TO AK CELEBRATE GETTING THIS IN FRONT OF YOU SO YOU CAN MAKE DECISIONS BEFORE IT AGAINS WHAT FAIRFAX COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD BELIEVES AND WANTS TO SEE. THIS YEAR. >>THANK YOU FOR YOUR INDULGENCES. I FEEL BETTER ABOUT WHERE WE ARE THIS EVENING KNOWING THAT DEGREE OF VETTING THAT HAPPENED AND I WANTED TO JUST SAY THAT SO APPRECIATE THE HARD WORK MY COLLEAGUE HAS DONE IN BRINGING STEPS TO OUR ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS AND GENERAL ASSEMBLY DOES NOT REALIZE DEGREE IN WHICH FAIRFAX COUNTY IS NEEDING TO ADDRESS NEEDS OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS AND FINALLY MISS HYNES IS A NATIVE CALIFORNIAN GREW UP WITH SOLAR ENERGY SINCE SEVEN YEARS OLD, THANK YOU FOR BEING A REALLY POWERFUL VOICE ON THIS BOARD TO BE MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND IN PRACTICES JUST APPRECIATE THAT VERY MUCH. I SUPPORT THIS TONIGHT AND FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH ANSWERS RECEIVED. >>THANK YOU.>>MISS SHULTZ.>>GO TO WHAT IS POSTED ON BOARD DOCS. >>EXCUSE ME, MISS MCLAUGHLIN I HAVE THE MICROPHONE. >>MISS SHULTZ PLEASE CONTINUE. >>THOUGH E CIGARETTES BECAME POPULAR BECAUSE THEY’VE BEEN CONSIDERED LESS HARMFUL THAN REGULAR CIGARETTES THE RECENT DISCOVERY OF SEVERE RESPIRATORY ILLNESS IS A DEADLY COMPLICATION OF VAPING RAISE ADD LARGES THROUGHOUT THE U.S. THIS IS POSTED ON BOARD DOCS. >>STAFF DOESN’T PULL IT OFF, MISS SHULTZ. YOU’RE CHOOSING TO IGNORE. >>THIS IS NOT HOW ROBERTS RULES WORK. AND I’M A LITTLE EXHAUSTED IT SEEMS LIKE EVERY TIME VERY THE MICROPHONE I HAVE COLLEAGUES WANTING TO TALK OVER ME WITHOUT ROBERTS RULES OF ORDER MY OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK IS NOW. I AM SAYING THIS IS WHAT IS POSTED PUBLICLY AND IS STILL POSTED PUBLICLY FOR THE, I’M LOOKING AT IT ON MY BOARD DOCS. IF IT’S REFRESH THAT HAD IS FINE THIS, IS THE PROBLEM OF LATE ADDITIONS AND EVERY TIME WE DO THIS, WE’RE TOLD, OH, NO. YOU DIDN’T DO YOUR HOME WORK OR HAVE THE CONVERSATION EARLIER, DIDN’T WORK AHEAD. ALL OF A SUDDEN, WHEN IT WORKS TO SOMEONE’S ADVANTAGE, TO PUT THIS IN, THIS WENT OUT. PEOPLE SAW THIS. AND THIS IS THE TYPE OF THING OF LATE ADDITIONS AND THIS IS NOT THE ONLY ONE. THERE ARE OTHER CONCERNS THAT I HAVE THROUGHOUT THIS. BUT THIS TYPE OF APPROACH EVERYBODY DECIDES THEY WANT TO HAVE THEIR WORD SALAD PUT INTO THIS IS WHERE WE’RE NOT STRATEGIC AS A BOARD. WE GO OFF ROADING IN A PRIUS AND GET STUCK F WE STAYED WITHIN OUR LANES AND FOCUSED ON STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AND THIS IS 53% OF COUNTY BUDGET. MAJORITY OF OUR SCHOOL BUDGET COMES HERE LOCALLY. AND THE NEXT BIGGEST PART, 88% IS MADE UP OF LOCAL TAXES AND THE MONEY BRINGING BACK TO US. $0.17 MAKES IT’S WAY BACK TO US. WE FUND THE STATE. SO WE HAVE TO BE EXPRESSLY CAREFUL AROUND MONEY, 40TH FUNDING IN THE STATE AND WE’RE NOT GETTING YOU KNOW THIS GOING AROUND TO THE STATE. AND ABOUT WHAT OUR PRIORITIES ARE. AND WE MADE IT WORSE TONIGHT NOT BETTER. THIS ISN’T MORE THOUGHTFUL. THIS ISN’T BETTER IT’S WORSE. AND THE CONDUCT HERE AT THE TABLE WHEN I MERELY POINT OUT WHAT IS POSTED PUBLICLY TODAY AS LAST MINUTE ADD AMONGST MANY OTHER THINGS IS EXACTLY WHY THIS IS NOT A STRATEGIC WAY TO GOVERN AND LEAD A $3 BILLION ENTITY AND HAVE PRODUCTIVE CONVERSATION WAS PEOPLE IN RICHMOND ABOUT HOW TO BETTER FUND SCHOOLS AND TAKE CARE OF TEACHERS AND GUESS CLASS SIZES DOWN AND 22,000 KIDS OUT OF TRAILERS. AND, THIS NOT IT. SO I’M STILL ABSTAINING.>>CALL QUESTION.>>THANK YOU.>>SECONDED. BY MR. MOON. THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE.>>THAT IS MISS EVANS AND MISS KES-GAMARRA AND MISS PALCHIK. THAT MOTION PASSES.>>THOSE OPPOSED? MR. WILSON? AND MISS SHULTZ. MOTION STILL PASSES. AND I AM GOING TO ASK THE FAVOR OF THE BOARD THAT WE DO NOT READ THE FULL MOTION AGAIN. AND INSTEAD JUST CALL FOR THE VOTE. THE MOTION BEFORE US ON THE SCREEN AND THOSE IN FAVOR? THOSE OPPOSED, OPPOSED? ABSTAINING? MR. WILSON AND MISS SHULTZ.

MY FAVORITE WAS VIENNA HALLOWEEN PARADE YESTERDAY AND SO, ENJOY YOUR WEEK AND I’M GOING TO HAVE TO SAY GO, NATS! THEY SPENT ABOUT TWO HOURS TALKING TO THE FAMILIES ABOUT NOT JUST THE DANGERS OF VAPING BUT UNDERSTANDING WHAT SUBSTANCE AND DRUG USE LOOKS LIKE AND TRYING TO HELP PARENTS BECOME MORE AWARE. IT SEEMED THAT EVERYBODY HAD A LOT TO TAKE AWAY FROM THAT, AND I DO BELIEVE WE WILL NEED TO DREW MORE OF THOSE. I APPRECIATE THAT THE PTA HAS AN ANNUAL PUSH FOR THESE TO BE HAPPENING IN ALL OF THE SCHOOLS. AS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR YEARS WE SHARE A LOT OF SCHOOLS. I WILL LOOK FORWARD TO JOINING HER AT THE ROBINSON AND LAKE BRADDOCK LEADERSHIP CLASSES. IT HAS BEEN AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE TWO OF US TO LEARN SO MUCH ABOUT WHAT IS WEIGHING ON THE MINDS OF OUR STUDENTS, AND SOME OF THE BEST INFORMATION THAT I THINK WE BOTH HAVE GAINED IN OUR TIME SERVING BOTH BRADDICK AND SPRINGFIELD. WITH THAT, I WILL SAY GO NATS.>>MR. WILSON.>>THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR. THANKFULLY THE NATS DON’T ALWAYS GO EXTRA INNINGS BUT WE DO. TONIGHT IS NO EXCEPTION. WE WILL GO BACK TO CLOSED WHEN WE ARE FINISHED. WE HAVE TO BE MORE LIKE THE NATS, CLEARLY. I HAVE A COUPLE OF THINGS THIS TIME I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT. FIRST, I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYBODY WHO CAME OUT TO MY OFFICE HOURS. IT IS AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE AND I APPRECIATE PEOPLE SHARING SO MUCH WHEN THEY COME TO OFFICE HOURS ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCES AT SCHOOLS, AND I, HOPEFULLY, WILL BE OF SOME LITTLE HELP TO THEM IN HELPING TO SOLVE THOSE ISSUES THEY BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO THANK THE MANY SENIORS WHO HAVE VOLUNTEERED AND GOT THEIR SERVICE HOURS HELPING ME OVER THE LAST SEVERAL WEEKS, VOLUNTEERS FROM WEST FIELD-SCHOOL AND CENTERVILLE HIGH SCHOOL. THAT IS A GREAT BLESSING TO MEET ALL OF THOSE SENIORS AND THANK YOU TO THE TEACHERS WHO ARE ADVOCATING FOR VOLUNTEERING WITH THE SCHOOL BOARD REPRESENTATIVES THAT ARE RUNNING. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO NOTE THAT NEXT WEEK IS THE END OF THE QUARTER SO ONCE AGAIN THE SENIORS HAVE TO GET THEIR APPLICATIONS IN AT THE END OF THE MONTH, GET COLLEGE APPS IN. GOOD LUCK AND TRY TO GET A FEW HOURS OF WEEK. IT IS GOING TO BE A BUSY WEEK FOR YOU. THANK YOU TO THE FOLKS THAT I MET AT CENTERVILLE. IT WAS A WONDERFUL TURNOUT. MY DOG WON MOST DIVERSE DOG. I AM NOT SURE WHAT THAT MEANS. MY DOG WON THE DIVERSITY AWARD WHICH I THOUGHT WAS WONDERFUL. MY SON WAS EXCITED ABOUT THAT, TOO. LAST BUT NOT LEAST THIS WEEK WE HAVE A SPECIAL CLASSIC BATTLE BETWEEN CATS AND DOGS ON FRIDAY NIGHT. THE WEST FIELD BULLDOGS TRAVEL TO CENTERVILLE AND TAKE ON THE WILDCATS THERE.
