But it's good to see all of you again, and it's good to see a full house here just to so rare to have a all the seats taken been a while. I'm going to keep it really short because I noticed that if myself and Jason keep it really short. We have the chance to set a record for shortest board meeting ever perhaps, so I just wanted to say I'm excited for the new year and for all the good stuff. We're going to hopefully do together and looking forward to convocation tomorrow, and that's about it. Thanks.

I just got moving on to item number 5 5.01 45-day budget revision for fiscal year. 2018 - 2019

Okay, good evening everyone. So as you know, and you've read through the agenda item, this is a chance for the district to provide the board with an update on the impact of the adopted budget by the state under Ed code for to 1 to 7. It requires that no later than 45 days after the budget has been adopted by the governor. The district can make an update to their adopted budget for the current fiscal year. So this is a chance for us to talk through some of the significant changes to our budget based on what was adopted by the state and it was basically in three categories the first one being a change in the Gap funding percentages, which actually had an impact on prior year since I've been doing this job. One of the big questions that's asked of me during various meetings is when are the numbers actually done for prior year and so here's an example of how the state can actually impact a year after it's done.

By adopting a state budget and changing the got funding percentages. So in the actual document that's attached with the agenda. You can see that with The Gap funding percentage is being reduced for a year 1718 as a district. We lost approximately sixty nine thousand dollars worth of Revenue under lcff. There were no changes to the Gap funding percentages for the current year or two out years eighteen nineteen and then the two out here's the next change was the one time discretionary funds and I gave a little preview on this when we were going through our adopted budget, as you know may is not a final number until the state adopts their budget. So there was talk of the one-time dollars going away. So this was the impact initially. We had a number that was a hundred and sixty dollars per Ada higher at the May revise that's been reduced now to 184 Parada based on that.

We've lost 1.2 million dollars in one-time discretionary funds for year 1819. So that's shown in the handout or the attachment to this board agenda item.

Thankfully some of those one-time dollars became ongoing dollars, but not to the same magnitude each year based under the adopted budget by the state. They augmented lcff revenue for 1819. It's actually instead of being 3% which was at the adopted budget the May revised number that we use. It's actually three point seven percent and based on that increase of cola under lcff. It actually increased the revenue. We're going to receive four years eighteen nineteen nineteen twenty and twenty Twenty-One. And so those numbers are highlighted once in the memo and also in the attachment the impact was essentially a half a million dollar increase in all of the three years for our district. So based on these adjustments, we have a net impact over the three-year period of about two hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars of an increase to our

Timeline assuming all other assumptions remain the same as you know, we're going through the process of closing our books for 1718. So there's going to be some adjustments to our Seventeen eighteen numbers, but we're just focusing on the impact of the states adopted budget to our actual adoption that was done in May or based on the May revise these I should say

Remembers any question for Jason

Not thank you so much Jason. Yep.

So this contract is the present is being forth to extend superintendent on cruises contract for an additional two years based on the satisfactory performance evaluation that we had this past year.

So this is the reason why I'm bringing forth and once contracted two years totaling up to three the years that have a misty

And I just want to thank one for all the good work that he's done these past few years as well. It's well deserved there's and

I think the one thing I was looking for in the Super Nintendos to maintain the


Effects that John Porter has implemented into the school district what I believe that one actually took that and ran with it increased potential for there. So there's a lot of things that we can see has improved and still can be improved so bringing forth this

Okay moving on to I don't know .07.

Formerly known as 7.03 the 2018 - 2019 contract with kognito Solutions or online simulation.

When I miss you have any questions on this so you can see just like to know more about the program and why this one specifically I was looking through some of the I guess because it's like a simulation online. And so just wondering specific to this is also a pilot of teachers doing this or is it being rolled out? I so, this is Arya second year using Cognito Incognito is one of the sort of the approved trainings per the new legislature in regards to requiring all staff members to undergo suicide prevention training. So we looked at various programs last year. And this one was the one that came highly recommended meeting the requirements and it's easy for us to track. You know, who's done it in be able to provide.

Some of our side in regards to ensuring that we have every single employee in the district complete this it is it is an interactive. It actually allows employees to make decisions and then based on those decisions. There's further training or further discussion that takes place and so we find that it's easier or more effective in regards to addressing such a very sensitive and complicated topic our teachers. Did it all of all our staff did it last year? And so this is our second year using this one. The one thing that is different here, which is the rolling out the trauma and form and so that's a piece that we will be piloting to see if something is something that we want to continue for us this year. That's the only difference between last year and this year

Have we gotten feedback from the teachers what they think of the program? You know what I don't think we actually formally surveyed them. I know that I didn't hear any complaints other than the fact that they they wanted us to provide time. And so we've asked every single SKU to allocate three and three hours administrative time to conduct to finish this one and all the other mandated training that we have such as the the child abuse training and the pesticide training. So we've we've allocated three hours and that that was the one thing that I know staff really felt that they needed to have some time.

But we will now that will be in our second year. We will survey them and get further feedback.

Remember to we have any further questions on this.

Seeing no no emotion. I move to approve items 7.03 second time 7.03 has been moved and seconded all those in favor. Please say aye.

Okay, moving on to item number 10 Communications from superintendent. So I'll keep it short. I want to thank the board for the your continued support and confidence in my ability to lead the district on behalf of our community and in looking to the best Ayah in regards to our community and what's in the best interest of our students. I'm really looking forward to to this year. You know, let go Scott's comments that it's good to have a contingency up here and looking forward to a successful year with a full cabinet and just the the the great opportunity that we have here in the district to do what's right for our community in our students and that's you know, really what drives me every day and you know looking forward to tomorrow.

Roland and being able to address the entire district and then get get started on Monday when the students show up. So once again, thank you.

Moving on to item number 11 Communications from Board of Education 11 2001 agenda item request remembers I have I have one is it possible? I guess maybe a few weeks after after school starts to get to start getting it every board meeting in enrollment update.

I don't know how he doesn't have to be fancy. Just kind of you know, where where do we stand so we have that actually on a daily basis for the first 20 days so we can certainly afford that to you so that you can keep track of how when how we started and then the changes over those first 20 days. I don't mind me hinge the board may be reported out at about it. And then we get out to me. Yes, and then we can report out at actual board meeting. We are planning as requested a full report Trend analysis enrollment over year over year by school. So that's also something that I know you had requested and so we're going to be doing that as well. Okay, and then we do the reports by school by grade level maybe even something like is there going to be other changes in classrooms?

You know are we growing classrooms or reducing classroom? That's part of that Trend analysis will be for us to kind of look at where where those either reductions or increases that we've had and so that we can do an analysis to of why that's happening. Okay be able to report that. Okay. I want to think positive as we increase classrooms. I've just heard Patricia say that we grew by about 20 kids from the last time we run the numbers. So that's all that's been that's all I want to hear.

Awesome. Okay. Thank you. Any other denied a request board members.

Not we'll move on to 11 .02 board member reports and we'll start with George. Oh my God, unfortunately don't report that at this is gonna be a big change in my life. I checked with my sister's counselors not once but twice and I'm in a good position to retire. So I'm going to go ahead and move forward. So I said goodbye to the kids today and wish motional day for weeks. I want to go back to school. I would advise to pick up master's degree in American history. I'll go with like you can teach in that Community College if you have that so anyway, but that's a dream of mine and I can't fulfill that dream in this I move forward with retirement. So goodbye to the east side after many years here. So know that that oh my God litter year and a half almost. Yeah almost it's almost funny when you put in your sick, they count your

Sick days. Those are also counted so he had about 200 of those. They throw that in. So anyway, so it financially would not benefit me where and when when dollars whatsoever to stay at their it's cool. So I am moving forward I meant and hopefully my replacement will be there tomorrow. I want to be with my problem Starbucks. Well though I put this in a while back, you know, yeah - yeah effective as of today. Thank you sister. Anyway, let me know when this is my big news. Thank you. Appreciate that. Let me know when you teach that class or take your course. Okay? All right, I will and then Ramona.

I was able to attend the Santee event that was held at Kennedy for their summer school program. They had a lot of really great PSA announcements is a difficult concept that they covered but very insightful. I also did it to a recently at the EduCare and Family Resource Center and there's just a lot of really great things happening though. So it was really great to see was at the new teacher orientation yesterday. So it was nice to see new faces and welcoming the new teachers whether their veteran teachers or any teachers and I also was at the Santa Clara County women's caucus event and they were discussing a lot of specific policy as it pertains to women and no went as policies in general that can be implemented. So they did share some of that the board and just wishing everyone a wonderful start to the school year as it's will start before we have our next board meeting so really

England which everyone will in their classrooms

Give me another one.

I attended the FMC I steering committee meeting. I think it was the middle of July. I can't remember now that and we had a discussion about the upcoming launch of the neighborhood Resource Center at at the room. So we hope that everybody can attend that on September 18th. I believe it is and I believe it's been sent out. And then also there was a presentation done that I asked one if we could share with the board in the future. So we'll wait till we we took till a school begins and we get a good time because it's a great resource document for everybody on the board to see
