FINALLY, YOU COULD MAKE PUBLIC COMMENT BY ORALLY BY LEAVING A VOICE MAIL MESSAGE AT THE PHONE NUMBER 425-936-1257.

AND THAT MESSAGE MAYBE PLAYED DURING THE COMMENT SECTION OF OUR MEETING. PLEASE LIMIT YOUR COMMENTS TO THREE MINUTES. OKAY, AT THIS TIME WE RECEIVED PUBLIC WRITTEN PUBLIC COMMENTS FROM SEVEN INDIVIDUALS THAT THE BOARD WILL READ ALLOWED INTO THE RECORD.

I ASKED THAT EACH BOARD MEMBER WILL TAKE TURNS READING THEM AND I WILL READ THE FIRST, WHICH IS FROM ALEXANDER GIBSON.

MR. GIBSON WROTE, SINCE ATTENDING LWSD FROM 2009-2012, A LOT OF THINGS HAVE CHANGED. THERE'S NEW BUILDINGS, THOUSANDS OF LAPTOPS AND BACKPACKS. AND THAT'S ONE THING THAT'S REMARKABLY STATIC, THE STAFF. WHEN I WAS A STUDENT I DON'T RECALL HAVING ANY TEACHERS OF COLOR.

AS A STAFF MEMBER NOW IT LOOKS EQUALLY LONELY FOR STUDENTS AND STAFF OF COLOR. IT'S MORE LIKELY THAN NOT THAT THE HUMANITIES TEACHER OF COLOR. NO ONE CLOSE TO THEM TO SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCES OF RACE, CULTURE AND POLITICS, EXCEPT FOR WHITE PEOPLE. AND THAT'S NOT TO DECRIMINALIZE WHITE TEACHERS. SOME OF US ARE DOING OUR BEST TO CENTER BISP VOICES AND KEEP AT THE HEART OF WHAT WE'RE DOING.

THIS IS NOT AN EAST LAKE PROBLEM.

I SAW THE SAME THING IN LWSD HIRING COMMITTEES AND PROFESSIONALS. AND TEACHING IS DISPROPORTIONATELY WHITE PROFESSION AS DOES WASHINGTON STATE. IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT QUALIFIED PEOPLE OF COLOR ARE NOT AVAILABLE.

IT'S JUST THAT THEY DON'T WANT THE TEACHER.

LWSD SHOULD DEVOTE MORE RESOURCES OBTAINING BIP TEACHERS. IF WE TRULY WANT OUR TEACHERS TO BE GLOBALLY READY CITIZENS, WE NEED A DISTRICT MORE REFLECTIVE OF OUR SOCIETY. THANK YOU MR. GIBSON FOR WRITING IN. DIRECTOR CARLSON, I'M LOOKING AT

[00:05:01]

YOU. WOULD YOU MIND READING THE NEXT

SUBMISSION AND DIRECTOR SAGE. >> SURE.

>> ORDINANCE, COMES FROM CRYSTAL, EAST LAKE HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER. FEW WEEKS AGO I WAS GRACIOUSLY INVITED TO A LINK SESSION, SPONSORED BY THE SCHOOL SESSION.

ELDERLY COLOR, HAS A SHELF LIFE OF TWO YEARS IN THE DISTRICT.

I WAS SHOCKED, ANGERED AND NOT SURPRISED BY THE COMMENT.

AS AN EDUCATOR OF COLOR FOR 14 YEARS, I ALWAYS WORKED WITH MAJORITY OF TEACHERS AND STUDENTS OF COLOR.

I CAME INTO THE STUDENTS, I WOULD HAVE TO WORK HARDER THAN MOST OF MY COLLEAGUES WHO ARE WHITE.

I'VE BEEN CALLED THE LIBERAL TEACHER.

I'VE BEEN THREATENED TO BE SUED TO MY BELIEFS.

MY VALUES AND SOCIAL JUSTICE. I'VE LISTENED TO THE SILENCE OF MY DEPARTMENT WHEN IT COMES TO SOCIAL JUSTICE, YET I'M STILL HERE BUT FOR HOW LONG. THE DISTRICT SENT OUT COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE DEPARTMENT, THAT ADVISED TEACHERS TO MAINTAIN NEUTRALITY AND ESSENTIAL TO MAINTAIN NEUTRALITY. AND OUR TO DEPARTMENT CHAIRS DO NOT AGREE TO THE STATEMENT. I DO NOT AGREE TO THE STATEMENT, AND OUR TEAM IN EAST LAKE DOESN'T BELIEVE IN THE STATEMENT. WHEN THE DISTRICT MAKES COMMENTS TO THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY IT ALLOWS TEACHERS, MAINLY WHITE TEACHERS TO NOT LEAN INTO THE CONVERSATIONS IN CLASS.

IT DOESN'T NORMALIZE THE TOPICS, SO STUDENTS COULD EXAMINE THEIR OWN BELIEFS AND VALUES. IT ALLOWS WHITE TEACHERS TO NOT HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY TO DEFEND AND UPLIFTS THE LIVES OF BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE. THAT'S NOT OKAY. WE ALLOW THE TEACHERS TO HAVE AN OUT. SO WHEN THE STUDENTS COME TO ME IN 11TH GRADE AND FACED WITH PERSONAL COLOR, I'M RIDICULED AND SPOTLIGHT FOR THE FACT. DOES THIS DISTRICT STAND FOR, NEUTRALITY AND COMPLAISANTY? AND WHEN WE'RE NEUTRAL AND COMPLAISANT AND SILENT, IT TELLS, WE DON'T BELIEVE THE MISSION AND VALUES OF LWSD. AND IT TELLS TEACHERS OF COLOR THE SHELF LIFE IS INDEED TWO YEARS HERE AT LWSD.

I ARE NOT STAY NEUTRAL WHEN THE RACE OF LIVES AND STUDENTS ARE THE TOPIC OF THE DISCUSSION. I EXPECT THE DISTRICT TO DO THE SAME. I ASKED THE DISTRICT TO SEND OUT, APOLOGIZE FOR THE EXTREME HARM IT HAS DONE FOR THE SCHOOL BOARD TO PROUDLY SAY, WE WILL NOT REMAIN NEUTRAL.

WE ADVOCATE FOR THE TEACHERS AND STUDENTS OF COLOR.

WE'RE ACTIVE CO-CONSPIRATORS AND FIGHT FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE AND EQUITY. MOST OF ALL SHOW ME.

>>ND A THE NEXT COMMENT WAS SUBMITTED BY JENNIFER MARIN.

I HAVE BEEN TEACHING AT EAST LAKE HIGH SCHOOL IN THE HUMANITIES DEPARTMENT SINCE 2018.

I HAVE ENJOYED TEACHING HERE DUE TO THE ADMINISTRATION'S SUPPORT, COLLEGE PROFESSIONALISM AND STUDENTS'S ENGAGEMENT BUT I ALSO HAVE CONCERNS. I BELIEVE AS A DISTRICT, WE NEED TO COMMIT TO THE GOALS. ONE, PROUDLY STATE BLACK LIVES MATTER AND DENOUNCE WHITE SUPREMACY.

AND SOME STUDENTS ARE CONFUSED ON WHAT BLM.

AND MANY THINK, THEY ARE AGAINST LAW ENFORCEMENT AND IN FACT.

WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO HELP STUDENTS TRULY SEE PRIVILEGE FOR WHAT IT IS AND WHO IT EFFECTS. I HOPE AS A DISTRICT, WE INCREASE THE CIVIC ACTIVISM, IN THE RECENT DEATH OF BLACK MEN AND WOMEN. TWO, REEXAMINE, THAT WE HAVE CONTENT THAT SPEAKS TO THE REALITY OF DIVERSE.

AS A HUMANITIES EDUCATOR, I WANT THE NOVEL CHARACTER AND HISTORIC CONTENT TO PUSH STUDENTS TO UNDERSTAND DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE AND CONFRONT LEARNED BIASES BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT HELPS ALL KIDS SUCCEED IN THE MULTI-RACIAL SOCIETY OF THE 21ST CENTURY.

I RECENTLY LEARNED THE FOCUS FOR ONE CURRICULUM FOR SENIOR ENGLISH IS BRITISH LITERATURE, NOT TO IMPONG OR CHASER AND LORD BYRON, BUT THAT'S NOT THE VOICE OUR KIDS NEED TO HEAR.

HAVE A PLAN TO RECRUIT, HIRE AND RETAIN ADMINISTRATORS OF COLOR, COUNSELORS OF COLOR AND TEACHERS OF COLOR.

HAVING A MAINLY WHITE STAFF, TEACHING A WHITE BUDDY DOESN'T PROVIDE STUDENTS THE IMPORTANT MODEL THEY NEED.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. >> DIRECTOR BLIESNER, WOULD YOU

BE ABLE TO READ THE NEXT. >> KATHERINE WOOD, ON OCTOBER 15TH, I RECEIVED A LETTER, HOW TO TEACH ELECTION BY THE DISTRICT. KNOWING WHAT THE DISTRICT SAID IN THE COLOR, THEY SUPPORT BLACK LIVES MATTER, I WAS SHOCKED TO

[00:10:04]

SEE THE DOCUMENT TOLD TEACHERS TO STAY NEUTRAL WHEN TEACHING ABOUT THE ELECTION. I FIND THIS WORDING PROBLEMATIC.

IT HAS ONE THING TO BE NEUTRAL ABOUT TAXES.

IT'S ANOTHER TO BE NEUTRAL ABOUT WHITE SUPREMACY.

I WILL NOT BE THAT TEACHER WHO REMAINS NEUTRAL WHEN HUMAN RIGHTS ARE VIOLATED. I WILL TEACH MY STUDENTS IT IS WRONG AND WHITE SUPREMACY IS THE CAUSE OF SYSTEMIC RACISM.

HOW COULD WE SAY BLACK LIVES MATTER? HOW COULD WE SAY WE SUPPORT BY POX STUDENTS.

I FIND IT PROBLEMATIC THAT THE DOCUMENT THANKS TEACHERS IN MY SCHOOL, THEY DON'T APPROVE THE FINAL DRAFT AND WANTED THEIR NAME TAKEN OFF. WE HAVE HEARD NO UPDATE OR THE ISSUE OF BEING NEUTRAL WHEN HUMAN RIGHTS ARE VIOLATED.

>> THANK YOU. ARE YOU ABLE TO READ THE NEXT

SUBMISSION. >> AND ONCE --

>> HERE IT IS. MOLLY WILSON, ESF TEACHER.

MY NAME IS MOLLY WILSON. I'M A HUMANITY TEACH NER EAST LAKE HIGH SCHOOL. I'M WRITING TO THE SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS TODAY, TO FURTHER ENCOURAGE THE DISTRICT TO ADVOCATE THE BIPOK IN OUR COMMUNITIES.

RECENTLY, A NUMBER OF MY STUDENTS OF COLOR HAVE COME FORWARD TO SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCE WITH RACISM IN OUR DISTRICT AT THE HANDS OF STUDENTS AND TEACHERS.

STUDENTS OF COLOR HAVE SHARED THEIR FEAR AND DISTRUST OF WHITE TEACHERS AND CLASSMATES BECAUSE OF THIS.

AND UNFORTUNATELY, ANY SIGNS OF PUSHBACK ON RACE CONVERSATIONS IN MY CLASSROOM HAVE COME FROM WHITE STUDENTS.

THIS DISCREP PANCY HAS REVEALED A DISSERVING REALITY IN MY CLASSROOM. STUDENTS OF COLOR FEEL UNSAFE.

I'M STRONGLY URGING THE DISTRICTS TAKES ACTION BY SUPPORTING STUDENTS OF COLOR BY HIRING TEACHERS THAT COME FROM SIMILAR BACKGROUNDS AND REFLECT THEIR IDENTITIES.

TEACHERS OF COLOR THEN NEEDS SUPPORT AND ASSISTANCE IN ORDER TO SAFELY, TO WORK SAFELY IN THE MOSTLY WHITE DISTRICT.

I'M ALSO ASKING FOR MANDATED EQUITY IN OUR CLASSROOMS AND SCHOOLS. I APPRECIATE THE EQUITY TRAINING AND WORK THAT'S BEEN DONE SO FAR, BUT EFFORTS TOWARDS CREATING EQUITABLE ENVIRONMENT FOR OUR COMMUNITY IS AN ONGOING

PROCESS ALWAYS. >> THANK YOU, DOCTOR STUART.

>> THE NEXT SUBMISSION WE HAVE IS FROM SARAH NORRIS, EAST LAKE HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER. MS. NORRIS WROTE, I WANTED TO PROVIDE COMMENT ON A DOCUMENT SENT OUT BY DR. JEDD ROSE ON OCTOBER 15TH, 2020. I AGREE WITH THE STATEMENT FROM THE DOCUMENT AS TEACHERS, IT IS ESSENTIAL TO REMAIN NEUTRAL IN POLITICAL ISSUES. HOWEVER, THE FOLLOW-UP ON THE STATEMENT IN PAIR DOCK 5, IT'S ESSENTIAL TO MAINTAIN NEUTRALITY, WHEN TEACHING AS ELECTION IN CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES. I ABSOLUTELY DON'T AGREE IN ADDING TO THE LANGUAGE, CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES.

FIRST OF ALL, WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN? SECOND, FOR SOME, LIKE OUR PRESIDENT, SLAVERY IS SYSTEMIC RACISM, AND WHITE SUPREMACY, IS DEEMED QUITE CONTROVERSIAL.

LOOKING AT THE HISTORY AND NOT A WHITEWASHED VERSION.

IS SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE AWARE, SO WE CAN UNDERSTAND HOW OUR COUNTRY GOT TO WHERE IT IS AND HOW TO DO BETTER.

SYSTEMIC RACISM WILL NEVER BE DISMANTLED UNLESS WE STUDY AND ANALYZE IT AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

ADDING TO OUR YOUTH, FURTHER PERPETUATES THE PROBLEM.

I WILL NOT REMAIN NEUTRAL ON BASIC CIVIL RIGHTS, THAT ALL PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY SHOULD HAVE, EVEN SOME SHOULD CONSIDER THEM CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES. MY BOPOC AND LBGQ STUDENTS, NEED ME TO AFFIRM THEY HAVE BASIC CIVIL RIGHTS AND ARE ACKNOWLEDGE AND TREATED EQUITABLE FROM OTHER STUDENTS.

THAT'S FROM SARAH ROSE. MS. ROSE FOLLOWED AN ATTACHMENT.

WE HAVE ONE LAST PUBLIC COMMENT ON REMOTE LEARNING.

DR. CARLSON, DOCTOR CARLSON, YOU COULD REPEAT THAT AS WELL?

>> BRIAN PRATHER. THE LATEST E-MAIL FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT STATES LAKE WASHINGTON IS IN A HIGH RISK DISTRICT. LAKE WASHINGTON IS NOT A HIGH RISK DISTRICT. AND ATTACHED TABLE ON THE CASES PER 100,000, THE LAST 14 DAYS, BY CITY.

[00:15:01]

>> OKAY, THOSE ARE THE PUBLIC COMMENTS WE RECEIVED.

THANK YOU ALL WHO TOOK THE TIME TO WRITE TO THE BOARD.

AND, AGAIN -- EXCUSE ME, THOSE THAT WISH MAKE A COMMENT, WRITING DN JENKINS, LWSD.ORG. AND THE NEXT ITEM IN THE AGENDA

[D. Consent Agenda]

IS THE CONSENT AGENDA, OCTOBER 26TH CONSENT AGENDA.

LEY NOW ENTERTAIN A MOTION TO APPROVE THE CONSENT AGENDA.

>> SO MOVED. >> SECOND.

>> MOVED BY DIRECTOR, APPROVED BY DIRECTOR CARLSON

>> DR. SAGE? >> YES.

>> DOCTOR BLIESNER? >> YES.

>> DIRECTOR CARLSON? >> YES.

>> VICE PRESIDENT STUART? MARK, YOU'RE MUTED?

>> YES. >> AND PRESIDENT LALIBERTE.

>> AND WOULD YOU SUMMARIZE THE DONATIONS YOU RECEIVED.

>> TONIGHT, WE HAVE DONATION 5,952 FROM THE PTSA FROM ACROSS THE DISTRICT. WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO THEM FOR CONTINUING TO SUPPORT OUR SCHOOLS, THEIR ACTIVITIES DURING THIS BY AND LARGE REMOTE LEARNING TIME, BUT WE KNOW THEIR IMPACT IN OUR SCHOOLS CONTINUE EVEN IN THE ENVIRONMENT.

WE WANT TO THANK THEM FOR THAT. >> THANK YOU.

>> DIRECTOR CARLSON, I SEE YOU HAVE YOUR HAND RAISED.

COULD IT WAIT FOR BOARD COMMENT OR IS IT SOMETHING YOU WANT TO

ADDRESS NOW? >> I WANTED TO, BECAUSE IT'S CLOSE TO THE PUBLIC COMMENT TIME AND THERE WAS A THEME TO THE COMMENT WE RECEIVED. I HAVE WANT TO SAY, CIVIL RIGHTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS ARE NOT CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES IN THIS

DISTRICT. >> THANK YOU, DIRECTOR CARLSON.

>> OKAY. THE FIRST ITEM ON THE NORTHERN CONSENSUS AGENDA IS THE

[E. Non-Consent Agenda]

ENROLLMENT UPDATE. DOCTOR HOLMEN, WOULD YOU PLEASE

COMMENT ON THAT. >> AND WE COME TO THE BOARD WITH AN UPDATE ON ENROLLMENT. WE REVIEW THE INFORMATION, AS AN EXECUTIVE COMMENT. VERY DIFFERENT DATA THAN WE PRE PRESENTED TO THE BOARD.

AND IS HERE TO PROVIDE AN UPDATE AND GIVE CONTEXT IN THE ENROLLMENT WITH THE GENERAL EDUCATION BUT ALSO SOME OF OUR PROGRAMS. WITH THAT, BARBARA, DO YOU HAVE

YOUR PRESENTATION TO SHARE? >> I AM SHARING IT RIGHT NOW.

>> OKAY. >> AND I WILL -- SHOULD BE

COMING UP >> ALL RIGHT, YOU COULD SEE THE PRESENTATION? INTERESTING, OKAY. IT'S SPINNING ON MY END. OKAY, ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT TONIGHT I'M GOING TO SHARE SOME STATISTICS ON OUR ENROLLMENT. OCTOBER 1ST IS THE OFFICIAL ENROLLMENT COUNT FOR DISTRICTS AROUND THE STATE IN WASHINGTON.

WE WANTED TO SHARE INFORMATION ON OUR ENROLLMENT COUNTS AND SOME DEMOGRAPHIC INFORMATION. OUR ENROLLMENT IS 30,648 STUDENTS. AND THAT IS, AS YOU WILL SEE FROM THE ATTACHED COUNT, THAT IS A DECLINE FROM THE PRIOR YEAR.

WE WERE 31,100 STUDENTS LAST YEAR.

THE CHART SHOWS THE LAST FIVE YEARS OF THE ENROLLMENT.

YOU COULD SEE, IT'S BY ELEMENTARY, MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL. IF YOU LOOK AT THE VERY LAST COLUMN, YOU WILL SEE OUR ACTION ENROLLMENT THIS YEAR IN ELEMENTARY. IT'S ABOUT 14,700 STUDENTS IN MIDDLE SCHOOL. 7200 STUDENTS.

IN HIGH SCHOOL, OVER 8,000 STUDENTS FOR A TOTAL OF 30,000 STUDENTS IN OUR ELEMENTARY LEVEL.

WE HAVE ALSO A SKILL CENTER IN OUR DISTRICT AND THAT'S ENROLLING 533 STUDENTS AND OUR EMMERSON K-12 PROGRAM, THAT'S OUR PARENT PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM THAT HAS 39 STUDENTS.

[00:20:03]

WE DID DECLINE IN ENROLLMENT FROM LAST YEAR 458 STUDENTS, MAINLY DUE TO COVID AND -- BUT OUR DECLINE, AS YOU'LL SEE ON FUTURE CHARTS, IS A LOT SMALLER THAN SOME OF OUR NEIGHBORING DISTRICTS. WE DECREASED JUST A PERCENTAGE AND A HALF. AND, OF COURSE, THIS IS AFTER MANY, MANY YEARS, OF SIGNIFICANT ENROLLMENT INCREASES IN THE DISTRICT. MOST THREE OUT OF THE FIVE YEARS, YOU COULD SEE OVER 1,000 STUDENTS A YEAR.

SO THIS CHART SHOWS THE ACTUAL ENROLLMENT COMPARED TO WHAT WE BUDGETED. WE SHARED INFORMATION ABOUT BUDGET IMPACTS AT THE STEADY SECTION, ON OCTOBER 5TH.

WE SHARED THAT OUR ENROLLMENT, IS UNDER WHAT WE PLANNED, WHAT WE BUDGETED. AGAIN, MOSTLY, WE'RE SEEING DECREASES IN OUR ELEMENTARY POPULATION.

ABOUT 200 STUDENTS IN THE POPULATION AND WE WERE -- WE ACTUALLY HAVE SLIGHTLY HIGHER ENROLLMENT IN OUR HIGH SCHOOL POPULATION. SO OVERALL, A HEAD COUNT IS DECREASING 732 STUDENTS. OUR -- WE ARE FUNDED BY THE STATE ON OUR AVERAGE ANNUAL ENROLLMENT.

WE'RE PROJECTING OUR AVERAGE FTE, FULL-TIME EQUIVALENT, WE'LL BE DOWN ABOUT 800 STUDENTS. SO THIS IS JUST SHOWING OUR RUNNING START. RUNNING START IS A PROGRAM THAT OUR JUNIORS AND SENIORS COULD ENROLL THROUGH THE COMMUNITY COLLEGES. THAT PROGRAM HAS STEADILY INCREASED IN ENROLLMENT, 125 PERCENT IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS.

JUST THIS FALL, IT'S ANOTHER 23 PERCENT INCREASE.

SO YOU'RE FAMILIAR WITH THE CHART.

WE SHOW THE CHART OFTEN ABOUT OUR SIGNIFICANT ENROLLMENT GROWTH, 31 PERCENT, OVER THE LAST 11 YEARS.

LAST YEAR, WE GREW FROM -- WE BECAME THE SECOND LARGEST SCHOOL DISTRICT IN THE STATE AT THE PEAK OF OVER 31,000.

WE DID, AS I'VE SAID. WE HAVE A SMALL DECLINE THIS YEAR. SO IT'S OUR FIRST DECLINE IN ENROLLMENT IN 13 YEARS. SO THERE'S A LOT OF DATA ON THE TABLE, WHAT WE WANTED TO SHOW, IS THAT ALL OF THE DISTRICTS AROUND US, HAVE SEEN ENROLLMENT DECLINES DUE TO COVID.

AND SO THE MAJORITY OF THE DISTRICTS HAVE SEEN 1-6 PERCENT DECLINE. SO THE HIGHEST DECLINE IS SPOKANE'S SCHOOL DISTRICT. YOU COULD SEE THE OTHERS, SUCH AS ISSAQUAH, WHO IS ALSO EXPERIENCING RAPID ENROLLMENT GROWTH, LOST 5 PERCENT OF THEIR ENROLLMENT AND WE ARE DOWN NEAR THE BOTTOM AT 1 1/2 PERCENT. AND THE AVERAGING IN KING COUNTY, THE OVERALL LOSS IN KING COUNTY WAS ABOUT 3.3 PERCENT.

SO THIS IS JUST A VISUAL REPRESENTATION OF OUR SIGNIFICANT GROWTH OVER THE LAST TEN YEAR PERIOD.

WE ARE THE HEAVY BLUE LINE AND SO YOU COULD SEE THAT WE'VE BEEN GROWING MUCH FASTER THAN OUR NEIGHBORING DISTRICTS.

AND THEN IT WILL VISUALLY SHOW THE DECLINES, THE DISTRICTS HAVE RECEIVED AND AGAIN, SOME DISTRICTS, THE DECLINE HAS BEEN STEEPER THAN OURS. SO JUST TO SUMMARIZE, 12 STRAIGHT YEARS OF ENROLLMENT INCREASES BEGINNING IN 2007.

THIS IS THE FIRST ENROLLMENT DECLINE IN 13 YEARS.

SINCE 2007, WE GROWN AN AVERAGE OF 735 STUDENTS PER YEAR, WHICH IS THE SIZE OF AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL EACH YEAR.

THE NEXT SECTION, IS SOME DEMOGRAPHIC INFORMATION THAT I'D LIKE TO SHARE. AND SO THIS IS OUR ETHNICITY AND RACE AND OUR CHANGE, SHOWING THE CHANGE IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS SO OUR ASIAN POPULATION HAS INCREASED FROM 23 TO 34, ALMOST 35 PERCENT. OUR BLACK AND AFRICAN-AMERICAN POPULATION HAS INCREASED JUST SLIGHTLY, ABOUT A HALF OF A PERCENT. OUR HISPANIC LATINOS STAYED THE SAME. TWO OR MORE RACES UP A PERCENT.

AND NATIVE HAWAIIAN HAS INCREASE AND WHITE HAS DECREASED 5

[00:25:07]

PERCENT. OUR ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROGRAM, WE HAVE SEEN CONTINUED INCREASE IN OUR ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROGRAM SO 30, ALMOST 3500 STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THE PROGRAM THIS YEAR. THAT REPRESENTS ABOUT 11 PERCENT OF OUR OVERALL ENROLLMENT. YOU COULD SEE THIS SHOWS HOW AS A PERCENTAGE OF OUR TOTAL ENROLLMENT, HOW IT KEEPS GROWING. THE STATE GAVE US RELIEF THIS YEAR ON NOT HAVING TO TEST, OUR NEW UPCOMING STUDENTS AND THAT ALLOWED US TO COUNT THE STUDENTS IN THE ENROLLMENT.

USUALLY WE HAVE TO TEST THEM FIRST.

WE CAN'T COUNT THEM IN SEPTEMBER.

BY THE TIME WE TEST THEM, THEY ARE COUNTED IN OCTOBER.

IT ALLOWED US TO COUNT THEM IN SEPTEMBER, WHICH HELPS OUR AVERAGE ANNUAL ENROLLMENT AND INCREASES OUR REVENUES FOR THAT.

OVERALL, THIS IS CONTINUED, OUR EXPECTED GROWTH IN EL.

THE NEXT SLIDE IS OUR SPECIAL EDUCATION PROGRAM.

IF YOU RECALL, WE ARE NO LONGER SERVING BIRTH TO 2.

EVEN THOUGH HISTORICALLY, THAT PROGRAM WAS MOVED OUT OF SCHOOL DISTRICT BUDGETS AND SERVICE INTO DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES, SO EVEN THOUGH HISTORICALLY WE SERVED THAT, WE TOOK BIRTH TO 2 OUT OF THE TABLE FOR COMPARESON PURPOSES.

AND THIS SHOWS PRESCHOOL TO K-12 POPULATION SO WE HAVE, AGAIN, SPECIAL EDUCATION IS STAYING ABOUT THE SAME, ABOUT 9 1/2 PERCENT OF OUR TOTAL POPULATION. WE DID HAVE A SLIGHT INCREASE IN ENROLLMENT OVERALL, DECREASE IN PRESCHOOL.

SORRY, I THINK THERE'S A TYPO HERE.

I APOLOGIZE. THIS IS THE K.

THIS SHOULD BE 3260. THERE'S A TYPO THERE.

I APOLOGIZE. WE DID HAVE A SLIGHT DECREASE OF 4.3 PERCENT, IN OUR SPECIAL ED PROGRAM.

AND THEN OUR LAST SLIDE IS A FREE REDUCED ELGIBILITY.

RIGHT NOW WE HAVE ABOUT 3,000 OR 9.8 PERCENT OF OUR TOTAL POPULATION ELIGIBLE FOR FREE OR REDUCED LUNCH.

THERE'S A DECLINE. WE HAVE BEEN DECLINING FOR THE PAST FIVE YEARS. IT WAS AS HIGH AS 13 PERCENT IN 2015. WE DO BELIEVE BECAUSE RIGHT NOW OUR GRAB AND GO MEALS ARE FREE, AND THAT WILL CONTINUE, YOU KNOW. ORIGINALLY, IT WAS THROUGH DECEMBER. THAT WILL CONTINUE THROUGH JUNE.

IT DOESN'T ENCOURAGE FAMILIES TO ENROLL IN FREE AND REDUCE.

WE'RE CONTINUING TO COMMUNICATE AND PUSHING OUT INFORMATION TO FAMILIES, TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO APPLY FOR FREE AND REDUCED LUNCH, EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE GETTING FREE MEALS RIGHT NOW.

IT'S IMPORTANT, BECAUSE WE WANT TO KNOW.

WE WANT TO KNOW, IF THEY ARE ON FREE AND REDUCED.

IT PROVIDES OTHERS, YOU KNOW, THEY MAY BE ELIGIBLE FOR OTHER SERVICES. WE'RE CONTINUING TO WORK ON COMMUNICATION AND HOPING THIS NUMBER THAT WE'VE REACHED ALL OF OUR FAMILIES. SO THAT CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION AND I BELIEVE THERE'S TWO HANDS, CASSANDRA AND

MARK NEXT. >> I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE I HEARD YOU CORRECTLY. DID YOU SAY A 4.3 PERCENT

DECREASE IN SPECIAL ED? >> CORRECT.

>> OKAY. SO DISTRICT WIDE WE'RE DOWN 4.3 PERCENT?

>> IN BOTH PRESCHOOL -- YEAH, WHEN YOU COMBINE PRESCHOOL AND

K-21. >> OKAY.

>> QUICK QUESTION, ON THE TOTAL ENROLLMENT DROP, YOU SAID DUE TO CORONA, DO WE HAVE ANY BREAKOUT AS TO WHETHER OR NOT HOW MANY ARE HOME SCHOOLING VERSUS WENT TO PRIVATE SCHOOLS OR LEFT THE

DISTRICT? >> YEAH, WE'RE WORKING TOGETHER, THAT INFORMATION. IT'S A LITTLE CHALLENGING.

LET ME GO BACK TO THE SLIDE. IT'S A LITTLE CHALLENGING.

>> I COULD SEE HOW IT COULD BE CHALLENGING.

>> BECAUSE OF, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE ARE LEAVING, YOU KNOW -- PEOPLE LEAVE AND THEN FAMILIES ARE MOVING IN, BUT WE WILL FOLLOW-UP BECAUSE I BELIEVE I ASKED THAT SAME QUESTION AT OUR STUDY SESSION. SO I WILL FOLLOW-UP TO GET, TO SEE WHAT ADDITIONAL DATA WE CAN GET ON, YOU KNOW, IDENTIFYING THE FAMILIES THAT ARE, THAT HAVE LEFT OUR DISTRICT.

[00:30:01]

BECAUSE THE REALITY, MORE FAMILIES EVERY YEAR, WE HAVE MORE FAMILIES -- WE HAVE LOTS OF FAMILIES LEAVE BUT WE HAVE LOTS OF FAMILIES MOVE IN. OUR NET IS AN INCREASE TYPICALLY. THIS IS A NET DECREASE THIS

YEAR. >> THE REASON WHY I ASK, I THINK AND THIS IS JUST A HYPOTHESIS OF MY PART.

KIDS ARE GOING INTO HOMES, THAT WILL PROBABLY BE RETURNING ONCE WE GET BACK TO A QUASI NORMAL, IF THERE'S A NORMAL.

IF THEY MOVE OUT OF THE DISTRICT, THAT'S ONE THING.

I DON'T SEE FOCUSING AT HOME, WANT TO STAY AT HOME, IN ORDER THEY HAVE TO. BEYOND THE ONES, FOR SOME REASON, TO BE EFFECTIVE FOR OUR KIDS.

I WOULD THINK THE PRIVATE SCHOOLKIDS WILL PROBABLY STAY AT

PRIVATE SCHOOLS, BY MY GUESS. >> YEAH, WE'LL GATHER THAT INFORMATION AND PROVIDE THAT. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

>> I THINK DR. CARLSON HAD HIS HAND UP.

>> I PUT IT DOWN. I WAS TRYING TO REMEMBER, ON THE K-5 STUFF, DO WE HAVE A BREAK OUT TO OLDER.

>> IT'S SPREAD PRETTY EVENLY, FROM AN ACTUAL STANDPOINT, IT IS A LITTLE MORE WEIGHTED TOWARDS KINDERGARTEN.

>> THAT'S USUALLY GOT THE MOST EXPERIENCE.

>> BUT THE OTHER GRADES ARE PRETTY EVENLY DISTRIBUTED.

>> THANK YOU. >> OKAY. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS

FOR BARBARA? >> THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU. >> THE NEXT ITEM IN THE AGENDA IS FACILITY AND CAPITOL TECHNOLOGY UPDATE.

>> YES. >> AND SO WELL, SUPERINTENDENT BARBARA, IS UNSHARING HER SCREEN.

WE HAVE ANOTHER GROUP HERE TONIGHT TO SHARE WITH US REGARDING AN UPDATE FOR OUR FACILITIES AND TECHNOLOGY UPDATE. THIS IS AN ANNUAL REPORT WE DO FOR THE BOARD. SO WITH THAT, I WILL LET BARBARA INTRODUCE HER TEAM AND THEN FOLLOWED BY THE FACILITIES UPDATE ASSOCIATED SUPERINTENDENT SALLY ASKMAN WILL JOIN THE PRESENTATION, TO PROVIDE A TECHNOLOGY UPDATE AS WELL.

BARBARA, I WILL HAND IT BACK TO YOU.

>> RIGHT. THANK YOU.

BRIAN BUCK OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF SUPPORT SERVICES IS HERE TONIGHT TO PRESENT OUR QUARTERLY FACILITY UPDATE, UPDATE ON ALL OF OUR BOND CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS AND OUR 2019 CAPITOL LEVEE AND BRIAN AND SALLY WILL ALSO BE PROVIDING AN UPDATE ON OUR FOUR YEAR CAPITOL FACILITIES AND TECHNOLOGY LEVY.

BRIAN, I WILL LET YOU TAKE IT AWAY.

>> OKAY. JUST ONE MORE INTRODUCTION.

CAPITOL MANAGEMENT PROJECTS DEGORERA IS ALSO HERE TONIGHT.

THANK YOU, LAURA FOR BEING HERE. >> THANK YOU.

FOR 2016 BOND PROJECTS, AS A REMINDER, THIS IS THE 2016 BOND FUNDED THREE NEW SCHOOLS, TIMER LINE MIDDLE SCHOOL, BAKER MIDDLE SCHOOL AND BARTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. THERE'S THREE REBUILD AND EXPAND PROJECTS, JUANITA HIGH SCHOOL, KIRK ELEMENTARY AND MEAD ELEMENTARY AS WELL AS THE EXPLORER COMMUNITY SCHOOL, THAT OPENED IN THE FALL OF TO 17 AND OLD REDMAN SCHOOLHOUSE.

AND THIS IS OUR JUANITA HIGH SCHOOL THIS IS MY FAVORITE PICTURE, WHICH IS THE AERIAL ON THE LEFT, WHICH SHOWS THE COMPLETED ACADEMIC BUILDING AND PERFORMING ARTS CENTER ON THE LEFT THERE. THIS IS THE FINAL SITE PLANNED FOR JUANITA. AS YOU'VE SEEN IN THE PAST UPDATES, IT'S FOLLOWED BY PHASING AND NOW WE'RE COMPLETE.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS, PHASE 2 OPENED ON TIME IN SEPTEMBER AND OUR FIELD HOUSE EXTERIOR PAINTING WAS COMPLETED IN OCTOBER.

WE HAVE COLLECTED 434 MILLION TO DATE.

FUNDS, CONSTRUCTION ASSISTANT FUNDS FROM THE STATE, ARE BEGINNING TO COME IN WITH $4 MILLION TO COME IN THE NEXT TWO YEARS. ON THE RIGHT, 94 PERCENT OF THE PROJECT EXPENDITURES HAVE BEEN SPENT AND PROJECTS HAVE BEEN COMPLETE, COMPLETED ON TIME AND UNDER BUDGET.

AND, OF COURSE, ONE YEAR DELAY WITH SOME EXTERIOR, NEW SCOPE OF WORK THAT WAS COMPLETED OVER THE SUMMER AND OPEN THIS FALL.

FOR THE 2019, SIX YEAR CAPITOL PROJECTS LEVEE, THESE WERE PROJECTS, CRITICAL PROJECTS FOR GROWTH.

IT INCLUDED CLASSROOM ADDITIONS AT FIVE SCHOOLS, WITH CORE EXPANSION FOR FACILITIES IN COMMON SPACE AS WELL AS SAFETY AND SECURITY UPGRADES. THESE ARE 20 CLASSROOM ADDITION AT LAKE WASHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL AND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ADDITIONS AT TWAIN ROSE HILL AND FRANKLIN AS WELL AS CARSON ELEMENTARY.

FOR LAKE WASHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL, CORE EXPANSION AND INCLUDES THE COMMONS EXPANSION AS WELL AS A NEW AUXILIARY GYM. BOTH PLAN TO OPEN IN SEPTEMBER 2021. AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS, WE'RE ABLE TO OPEN THE COMMONS EXPANSION ONE YEAR EARLIER THAN PLANNED.

UPCOMING IS STRUCTURAL STEEL AND DECEMBER 2020, FOR THE GYM

[00:40:07]

EXPANSION. AND WE'RE ALSO SCHEDULED TO COMPLETE THE LOCKER ROOM EXPANSION IN DECEMBER, THIS DECEMBER. AND WE WERE ABLE TO AFFORD THAT WITH PROJECT SAVINGS ABOUT HALF MILLION DOLLAR.

WE DESIGNED IT, BID IT AS AN ALTERNATE AND WERE ABLE TO SAVE MONEY IN THE PROJECT TO ADD IT TO THE SCOPE OF WORK.

ON THE LEFT, IS A PICTURE OF THE COMMONS EXPANSION.

IT'S REALLY THE SECOND STORY MEZANINE WE EXPANDED.

ON THE TOP RIGHT, IS THE LOCKER ROOM EXPANSION.

AND FOR CARSON, WE HAVE A FOUR CLASSROOM ADDITION.

THIS WILL OPEN CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN NEXT SUMMER, OPENING SEPTEMBER 2022. AND OUR PREAPP SCHEDULED FOR OCTOBER, IN OCTOBER. I DON'T THINK WE'VE HAD IT YET, BUT I THINK IT'S SCHEDULED AND UPCOMING WILL BE THE PERMIT IN DECEMBER. FOR CORE EXPANSION, OUR CONCEPT DESIGN IS COMPLETED, WAS COMPLETED IN AUGUST.

WE'RE MOVING FORWARD WITH DESIGN DEVELOPMENT, SHOULD BE COMPLETE IN NOVEMBER. AND OUR PREAPP MEETING IS SCHEDULED WITH THE CITY OF KIRKLAND IN NOVEMBER.

AND OUR SAFETY AND SECURITY UPGRADES, THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CAMERA PROJECT WAS COMPLETED BY OUR TECHNOLOGY OPERATIONS GROUP IN OCTOBER. AND THE LAKE WASHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL ENTRY MODIFICATION WAS COMPLETED IN OCTOBER.

REDMAN HIGH SCHOOL SHOULD BE COMPLETED IN NOVEMBER OF THIS YEAR. AND THEN EAST LAKE IS PLANNING TO BE COMPLETED BY SEPTEMBER OF 2021, DEPENDING ON COVID AND WHETHER WE'RE IN REMOTE LEARNING, WE MAY BE ABLE TO PULL THAT ONE FORWARD. SO FOR PROGRAM UPDATES HERE, WITH THE 2019 LEVY, WE HAVE 144 PLAN, 144 MILLION PLAN AND REVENUE. OUR BALANCE OF OUR -- LEVY PROCEEDS ARE COMING IN. WE HAVE ALSO SOLD BONDS OF $75 MILLION LAST MAY, AND WILL PAY BACK WITH THE LEVY FUNDS IN THE NEXT SIX YEARS. OUR PROGRAM SPENDING HAS PICKED UP OVER THE SUMMER AS THE LAKE WASHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL ADDITION IS COMPLETED. OUR LAKE WASHINGTON GYM AND ELEMENTARY CONSTRUCTION BEGINS. SO FOR PROGRAM COSTS UPDATE, THESE ARE ADDED FUNDS, THAT WERE NOT PART OF THE FUNDING PLAN.

ONCE ALL OF OUR -- ONCE OUR COST OF THE PROJECTS ARE FINALIZED, WE CAN DETERMINE THE USE OF THE FUNDS.

IT MAY ALLOW US TO DO SOME ADDITIONAL PROJECTS, 5 MILLION AT LAKE WASHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL, 3.3 OF THAT, IS CONSTRUCTION ASSISTANCE FOR THE CLASSROOM AND 1.7 FOR THE GYMNASIUM.

OKAY. PORTABLE CLASSROOMS. OUTSIDE OF THE 2019 LEVEE, WE HAVE WE REPURPOSED FUNDS FOR PORTABLE CLASSROOMS.

[00:45:02]

AND WE -- AT ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, WE OPEN THREE PORTABLES, AT BELL, THREE AT FROST, ONE AT SANDBURG AND THREE AT THROW.

AND THEN FOR OUR MIDDLE SCHOOL, WE WILL RELOCATE TEN PORTABLES, TWO TO KIRKLAND MIDDLE SCHOOL AND TWO TO INGLEWOOD AND SIX TO ROSE HILLS MIDDLE SCHOOL WHICH SHOULD BE COMPLETED IN MID DECEMBER. PICTURE ON THE LEFT IS AG BELL AND PAINTED TO MATCH THE EXISTING EXTERIOR OF THE SCHOOL, TOP RIGHT IS THROW ELEMENTARY. THE NEW PORTABLES AND NEW SIDEWALKS ADDED FOR ADA COMPLIANCE AND BOTTOM RIGHT IS FROST ELEMENTARY. IT'S THE WEST FACE OF THE THREE NEWPORTABLES THERE. NOT SHOWING HERE IS THE SANDBURG PORTABLE. AND THEN FOR THE MIDDLE SCHOOL, THE LEFT IS AT INGLEWOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL.

TOP RIGHT IS ROSE HILLS MIDDLE SCHOOL.

THERE'S THREE PORTABLES SET THERE WITH THREE REMAINING.

ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT, PORTABLES SET IN THE MIDDLE AT KIRKLAND MIDDLE. AND OKAY, FOR 2018 CAPITOL LEVEE PROJECTS, I'M GOING TO TALK TO YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT SOME OF THE FACILITIES PROJECTS. SALLY WILL TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE TECHNOLOGY PROJECTS. THIS 2018 CAPITOL LEVY IS RENEWED BY VOTERS EVERY FOUR YEARS.

ON THE LEFT IS A GYM AND COMMONS FLOORING REPLACEMENT AT KELLER ELEMENTARY. TOP RIGHT, IS BLACKWELL ELEMENTARY CARPET REPLACEMENT AND BOTTOM RIGHT IS BLACKWELL HALLWAY FLOORING REPLACEMENT. HERE'S SOME ROOFING RESTORATIONS AND REPLACEMENTS. THE TOP TWO ARE AT LAKE VIEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. ON THE BOTTOM LEFT IS A FLAT ROOF SECTION AND EINSTEIN ELEMENTARY.

AND THE BOTTOM RIGHT IS ROOF RESTORATION AT ROSA PARKS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. HERE WE GO FOR SOME ATHLETIC FIELDS AND COURT IMPROVEMENTS AT REDMAN HIGH SCHOOL.

WE REPLACED SOME SYNTHETIC SURFACE AND SYNTHETIC TRACK AROUND REDMAN HIGH SCHOOL. ALSO INCLUDED HERE, ARE LACROSSE LINES, WHICH IS NEW FOR REDMAN HIGH SCHOOL.

EVEN THOUGH WE DON'T HAVE LACROSSE AS A WIAA SECTION SPORT. OUR COMMUNITY OFTEN RENTS OUR FACILITIES FOR LACROSSE. AND OUR TOP RIGHT IS EAST LAKE HIGH SCHOOL GYM REFINISHING OF THE AUXILLARY GYM AND BOTTOM LIGHT IS TENNIS COURT REFINISHING IN CAM MAYA MIDDLE SCHOOL. AND FOR SAFETY, SECURITY ENHANCEMENTS, THIS IS AT THE RESOURCE CENTER, THE LEFT TOP IS A RECEPTION AREA IN THE LAKE WASHINGTON SCHOOL, NEW FOUNDATION AREA AND THE BOTTOM LEFT AGAIN IS THE FOUNDATION AREA, WHICH PROVIDES ADDITIONAL SPACE FOR STAFF.

ON THE RIGHT, IS THE NEW SECURITY DOOR AND CHECK IN AND WALL THERE. OKAY. WELL, I'M GOING TO TURN

IT OVER TO SALLY. >> THANK YOU, BRIAN.

NOW I THINK THAT YOU'RE GOING TO CLICK FOR ME, RATHER THAN TAKING TIME ON THE HAND OFF. SO THE TECHNOLOGY LEVY IS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT THAN THE CAPITOL PROJECTS LEVY THAT BRIAN DESCRIBED BECAUSE OUR WORK IS ONGOING AND NOT JUST IN THE SUMMER. I WILL HIGHLIGHT PROJECTS FOR SCHOOL YEAR 2019-2020. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

WE HAVE FIVE CATEGORIES, INFRASTRUCTURE IS THE FIRST ONE I'LL TALK ABOUT. RIGHT NOW, I THINK IT'S POSSIBLY THE DIGITAL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM, ROUTING SYSTEM, TO GET OUR STUDENTS AND STAFF TO SCHOOLS, AND TO OFFICES.

WHAT WE DID IN THE PAST YEAR, WE INCREASED CAPACITY OF SERVERS, STORAGE AND CONFIGURATIONS TO SUPPORT REMOTE LEARNING.

WE UPGRADED AND INCREASED CAPACITY IN OUR DISTRICT VOICE CALLING SYSTEMS TO KEEP PACE WITH THE TELEPATHY CHANGES AND

[00:50:03]

MARKET AT LARGE AND ALSO PROVIDED HEAD SETS FOR SHARED OFFICE SETTINGS, WHERE OFFICE MANAGERS AND STAFF ARE WORKING CLOSELY TOGETHER, SO THEY CAN MANAGE THEIR VOICE NOW.

THIS UPGRADE HELPED US BRING OUR DISTRICT CALLING RIGHT TO THE HOME. SO WHEN PEOPLE NEED TO USE OUR VOICE SYSTEM, IT DISPLAYS ON CALLER ID A DISTRICT PHONE NUMBER. WE UPGRADED, WE MANAGED THE LICENSING AND MANAGEMENT OF OUR FIRE WALLS, FILTERS AND CLOUD SERVICES, SPECIFICALLY MICROSOFT EJUR AND WE HAVE AN ACCOUNT OPERATION THAT MANAGES MILLIONS AND MILLIONS ACCOUNTS PROVISIONS EVERY YEAR.

WE JUST BROUGHT ON-LINE A NEW MANAGED SERVICES PARTNER IBM CORPORATION. WE ARE REPLACING THEM WITH A PREVIOUS MANAGEMENT SERVICES PARTNER THAT WAS NOT QUITE ABLE TO MEET OUR NEEDS. WHAT IBM DOES AS A MANAGED SERVICE PARTNER BRINGS THE EXPERTISE, CAPABILITIES, MANAGEMENT OF OUR NETWORKS, LOOK FOR BOTTLE NECKS, LOOK FOR PROBLEMS AND LOOK FOR POTENTIAL ATTACKS.

THEY WORK HAND IN HAND TO MAKE SURE OUR NETWORK IS RUNNING OPTIMALLY. WE ALSO HAVE MANAGEMENT CONSOLES, TRAFFIC MONITORING SYSTEMS, SO THE GRAPHIC ON THE BOTTOM IS GRAPH OF TEAMS ACTIVITY.

THOSE CON SILLS, WILL LOOK, SO WE CAN MITIGATE WITH THE GOAL OF MINIMIZING THE DISTRICT FOR LEARNING.

SO THE EQUIPMENT CATEGORY IS UNDER IFFING THAT PROVIDES ALL THE HARDWARE TO THE STAFF AND STUDENTS AND OUR CONFERENCE ROOMS AND CLASSROOMS. SO SMART BOARDS, FOR EXAMPLE, WE HAVE BEEN RUNNING A THREE YEAR PROJECT, SPANNING TWO LEVY CYCLES TO REPLACE ALL OF OUR AGING ACTIVE ORIGINS IN OUR CLASSROOMS. WE COMPLETED ELEMENTARY.

THIS YEAR WE REPLACED 60 PERCENT OF THE SECONDARY CLASSROOMS AND WE WILL FINISH THE SECONDARY CLASSROOMS BY THE END OF 2021 SCHOOL YEAR. WE'RE ALSO PUTTING THE SAME TECHNOLOGY IN CLASSROOMS BRIAN SPOKE ABOUT EARLIER.

EVERY YEAR, WE PURCHASE NEW LAPTOPS FOR 6TH AND NINTH GRADERS. THIS YEAR, WE ALSO PURCHASED 350 LAPTOPS FOR OUR NEW INCOMING TEACHERS THAT THEY WERE TRAINED ON IN THE SUMMER. WE MADE A LARGE EMERGENCY PURCHASE. THIS WAS 2000 LAPTOPS FOR STUDENTS AND 900 TO REPLACE OLDER DESK TOPS, FOR OUR SUBS AND LOANERS, AND WORKERS THAT WERE PREVIOUSLY ON DESK TOPS AND WERE DISPLACED AND WORKING FROM HOME.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. ON INSTRUCTIONAL SOFTWARE CATEGORY, THE AREA THAT SUPPLEMENTS OUR CURRICULUM WITH DIGITAL APPLICATIONS TO SUPPORT INSTRUCTION.

APPLICATIONS LIKE ZILLO, WHICH SUPPORTS OUR HIGH SCHOOL AND BEYOND HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM GOALS, WHERE STUDENTS ARE ABLE TO ASSESS CAREERS, DO INVENTORIES AND LOOK AT COLLEGE OPPORTUNITIES, AND FAST BRIDGES AND ASSESSMENT PLATFORM THAT WE RECENTLY ADOPTED AND PILOTED LAST SPRING AND ARE USING THIS YEAR. DURING BOXES, AND MATH PROJECT, THAT'S POPULAR WITH OUR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS.

A SOFTWARE THAT IS USED INTERACTIVELY.

THAT'S A SMART SOFTWARE ON THE SMART BOARD.

IT COULD ALSO BE USED ON THE LAPTOP.

WE HAVE THE SAME EXPERIENCE, WITHIN OR WITHOUT THE CLASSROOM TECHNOLOGY. THERE WILL BE CREATIVE CROWD.

WIDELY USED IN THE DISTRICT IN MANY, MANY PROGRAMS AND APPLICATIONS, AT THE STAFF AND STUDENT LEVEL.

NEXT, PLEASE. THIS SYSTEM IS THE CATEGORY OF THE TECH LEVY THAT FUNDS THE ANNUAL RENEWAL OF MICROSOFT LICENSES. IT HAS FUNDED FOR A WHILE, THE SUPPORT SERVICES FOR PARENTS, PARENT QUESTIONS, E-MAIL, 24-7 LINE. WE HAVE ADDED TO THIS YEAR, BY SOME OF THE CARE FUNDING. THE WEBSITE AND HOSTING.

THEY HOST, THEY PRIVATELY HOST THE WEBSITE.

AND THAT HELPS US KEEP TRACK OF THE LAPTOPS OUT THERE AND STUDENTS AND STAFFING. IT'S ALSO USED FOR BUSINESS SERVICES FOR ASSET MANAGEMENT AND ALSO FOR THE CURRICULUM DEPARTMENT. THEN WE HAVE PROFESSIONAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS, SUCH AS OUR PROFESSIONAL LEARNING, AND OUR

[00:55:07]

PROFESSIONAL. AND LASTLY, WE HAVE PROJECT MANAGER RESOURCES THAT HELPED WITH BROAD SCALE SYSTEMS. AND EDISCOVERY, TO MANAGE OUR IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS AND E-MAILS.

BUS-HIDE, WHICH IS A TICKET SYSTEM WE PARTNERED WITH THE TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT LAST JUNE.

LASTLY, WE HAD PROJECT MANAGEMENT RESOURCES THAT WORK HAND IN HAND WITH CONSTRUCTION PROJECT TEAMS, TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE THE STANDARD TECHNOLOGY ORDERED AND IMPLEMENTS, AND INSTALLED, AND SPECIFICATION. LAST SLIDE.

TECHNOLOGY AND TRAINING -- TECHNOLOGY TRAINING AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT. THIS IS THE FUNDING THAT PROVIDES STIPPEN FOR OUR TEACHERS FOR LEARNING TECHNOLOGY. IT FUNDS INSTRUCTIONAL SPECIALIST WHO IS DEVELOPING AND DELIVERING FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS IN TECHNOLOGY. AND IT PROVIDES TECHNOLOGY THAT WE HAVE IN THE SYSTEM. IT FUNDS THE TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION, FACILITIES PROGRAM, THAT CONVENES AND WORK TOGETHER IN THEIR BUILDING ON TECHNOLOGY. THERE'S AN EXPERT ON THE AGILITY. AND WE NEUTRALIZED THE SYSTEM, TO TRAIN OUR TEACHERS REMOTELY, WHEN WE HAD TO MAKE THE ADJUSTMENT. WHEN WE -- SO THE TEACHERS ON THE LOWER RIDE ARE ACTUALLY DOING REMOTE LEARNING THROUGH OUR SYSTEMS. AND I THINK THAT'S IT.

>> YEP. >> I THINK DIRECTOR STUART HAS A

QUESTION. >> QUICK QUESTION.

WHAT ARE THE INVENTORY WE HAVE FOR LAPTOPS FOR STUDENTS, HOW MANY ARE A YEAR OLD, THREE YEARS, FOUR YEARS, FIVE YEARS? I'VE SEEN A LOT -- I KNOW THERE WERE COMPLAINTS ON FACEBOOK AND I DON'T KNOW HOW ACCURATE THEY CAN BE.

I COULDN'T TELL ONE LAPTOP TO THE NEXT.

SOME OF THEM ARE SAYING, SOME ARE LAPTOPS.

I KNOW WE HAD TO SCRAMBLE THIS YEAR, ARE 4-57-YEAR-OLD.

DO WE HAVE ANY THAT OLD? IF SO, WHAT'S THE SCHEDULE FOR

REPLACING >> THE GOOD NEWS, WE'RE REPLACING OUR OLDEST UNDER PERFORMING LAPTOPS IN THE DECEMBER, JANUARY TIME FRAME. JOHN WILL TALK ABOUT THAT IN A

BIT. >> GREAT.

>> THE EQUIPMENT THAT IS OLDER, THE 5-YEAR-OLD AND 6-YEAR-OLD, IS EQUIPMENT THAT WE SCRUBBED ALL THE UNNECESSARY APPLICATIONS FROM. AND ONLY PUT THE MINIMUM REQUIRED FOR THE YOUNGER GRADES. THEY USE LESS SOFTWARE.

WE HAVE BEEN MONITORING THAT AND ARE DETERMINING, WE'VE ONLY HAD.

AND PERCEPTION IS EVERYTHING IF WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THE KIDS HAVE A GREAT EXPERIENCE. WE WERE ACTUALLY ABLE TO GET

MORE EQUIPMENT. >> AND THE REALITY, WHEN YOUR KIDS HAVE A LAPTOP, THAT HAS TO BE EXCHANGED, IT MAKES IT WORST.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I WANTED TO BE KNOWLEDGEABLE ON THAT WHEN SOMEONE ELSE COMPLAINS.

THANK YOU. >> YOUR WELCOME.

>> QUICK QUESTION ON RESPONSE RATES FOR PARENTS SUPPORT AND I THINK WE DISCUSSED SEVERAL WEEKS AGO, WHETHER OR NOT SPANISH FAMILIES WERE ABLE TO ACCESS SORT OF TECH HELP AND WHETHER OR NOT IF WE CAN HAVE AN UPDATE ON HOW THOSE THINGS ARE GOING.

>> QUICKLY WE ADDED LANGUAGE INTERPRETATION AND THERE IS ALSO A CALL BACK FEATURE AND VOICE MAIL FEATURE FOR PARENTS SO THEY DON'T TO HAVE WAIT. AND OUR TICKETS ARE COMING WAY DOWN. IT'S HARD TO GIVE A DETAIL BY DETAIL BECAUSE I'M NOT REACHED FOR THAT.

>> PERHAPS AT AN UPCOMING MEETING.

THANK YOU. >> BRIAN, DID -- YOU HAVE SHOWED US PHOTOS OF THE NEW PORTALS AND I CAN'T REMEMBER THE SCHOOLS.

DO ALL OF OUR NEWPORTABLES LOOK LIKE THAT?

ARE THEY ALL THAT NEWER STYLE? >> CORRECT.

[01:00:01]

THEY ARE ALL THE SAGE GREEN PORTABLES FROM PACIFIC MOBILE IS

OUR DEALER FOR THOSE. >> OKAY.

GREAT. THANKS.

>> THANK YOU. I JUST WANT TO SAY THANKS FOR THE PRESENTATION AND THE BUILDING GOING ON EVEN THOUGH WE'RE NOT NECESSARILY ABLE TO GET INTO THOSE AS MUCH AS WE WOULD LIKE AND HAVE OUR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS THERE AT THE SAME TIME. IT'S GREAT TO SEE THE PROGRESS OF JAUNITA BEING BUILT. IT'S GREAT TO SEE THE PORTABLES GONE. CLEAR AMOUNT OF EFFORTS AS WELL AS THE APPROACH TO ADDRESS DIFFERENT THINGS.

GREAT TO HAVE THE FUND TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT AND THE CORE EXPANSIONS. I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WAS CALLED OUT. A LOT OF WORK.

AND RACHAEL CARLSON. WE HAD PREVIOUSLY TALKED ABOUT IT BEING AN ADDITION ON TOP. MY IMPRESSIONS THAT IT'S AN ADDITION ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE BUILDING?

>> THAT IS CORRECT. AS WE WENT THROUGH THE DESIGN PROCESS IT WAS ACTUALLY CHEAPER FOR US TO ADD ON TO A WING AND ACTUALLY LESS DISRUPTIVE TO THE EXISTING KINDERGARTEN CLASS THAT YOU WOULD BUILD ON TOP OF. IT'S A GREEN ROOF AND WHAT WE LEARNED IS ALTHOUGH WE PLANNED FOR AN ADDITION SEISMIC CODE AND STRUCTURAL CODE HAS CHANGED ENOUGH THAT IT WAS MORE COST PROHIBITIVE TO GO ON TOP. AS OPPOSED TO EXTEND ON THE WING

THERE. >> THE WILLINGNESS TO THINK DIFFERENTLY IS GREATLY APPRECIATED AND LOOKING AT ALL OF THE OPTIONS ON HOW TO KEEP THE COST DOWN.

THANK YOU. >> THANKS.

>> THERE ARE A FEW HANDS UP STILL.

I DON'T KNOW IF THERE ARE ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS.

>> GO AHEAD. >> QUICK QUESTION.

I'M NOT SURE IF IT'S FOR BRIAN OR BARBARA.

WITH THE ADDITION THAT'S WE'VE GOT HOW FAR ARE WE STILL UNDER

CAPACITY FOR WHAT WE NEED? >> YEAH.

BARBARA, DO YOU WANT TO TAKE THAT?

>> I CAN TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT.

SO IN THE LAKE WASHINGTON LEARNING AREA WHICH IS WHERE WE'RE PUTTING THREE OUT OF THOSE FOUR ADDITIONS OUR ORIGINAL INTENT WAS NEED WAS AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND WHICH IS ABOUT 30 CLASSROOMS AND WE'RE ACTUALLY BUILDING 20 CLASSROOMS IN THAT AREA SO THERE IS STILL A NEED FOR ADDITIONAL SPACE IN THAT LEARNING COMMUNITY AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT OUR ENROLLMENT PROJECTIONS THROUGH 2930 THE GROWTH CONTINUES.

SO THE RECOMMENDATION IS STILL FOR MORE CLASSROOMS IN THAT AREA AND THE CHALLENGE IS F -- FINDIG A SITE TO BUILD ANOTHER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. BUT THE NEED IS STILL THERE.

SO THIS WILL ADDRESS IT SHORT-TERM AND THERE IS STILL A

LONG-TERM NEED. >> SO THERE IS OPPORTUNITY PERHAPS TO BUILD ON TO ONE OF THE EXISTINGS AND ALSO NEED AN ADDITIONAL ELEMENTARY IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE SAYING?

OR AM I MISS INTERPRETING? >> WE'RE PUTTING THE ADDITIONS ON THE SCHOOLS WHERE WE'VE DETERMINED WE CAN PUT ADDITIONS ON. I DON'T KNOW THAT THERE IS CAPACITY AT OUR OTHER SCHOOLS IN THE LAKE WASHINGTON LEARNING AREA FOR ADDITIONS. OUR NEWEST SCHOOL IS MASTER PLANNED FOR AN ADDITION SO THAT WOULD BE AN AREA WHERE WE COULD

PUT AN ADDITION ON. >> OKAY.

>> IF WE GO UP CAN WE HAVE MORE CAPACITY?

>> IF THEY ARE DESIGNED LIKE CARSON WAS DESIGNED FOR A SECOND STORY THE ADDITION AT KIRK GOES OUT AND IT'S A MULTI-STORY ADDITION. BUT IT'S CHALLENGING TO TAKE A TWO STORY BUILDING -- CAN WE ADD A THIRD STORY TO SOME OF OUR TWO STORY BUILDINGS? PROBABLY NOT WITHOUT COMPLETELY TEARING THEM DOWN AND STARTING OVER.

>> THANK YOU. >> ANOTHER WAY TO PUT CONTEXT AROUND THE LAKE WASHINGTON LEARNING AREA, THE NUMBER OF

[01:05:08]

PORTABLES WE'RE SERVING OR WILL SERVE A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF STUDENTS IN PORTABLE CLASSROOMS AND SO THAT IS THE OTHER KIND OF INDICATOR OF OUR SCHOOLS BEING ABOVE CAPACITY IS THE NUMBER OF PORTABLES WE'RE HAVE TO SITE IN THE AREA.

THE CITY OF KIRKLAND WORKED WITH US TO SITE ADDITIONAL PORTABLES AND THEN WE WERE ABLE TO DO THESE ADDITIONS AT THREE OF THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS THAT ARE CENTRAL TO THAT LEARNING COMMUNITY AND SO YES AND THE PROJECTIONS DEFINITELY ARE THAT WE'LL NEED ADDITIONAL CAPACITY. WHILE WE'RE ON THAT TOPIC MARK IT'S ALMOST LIKE YOU PREDICTED WHAT I WAS GOING TO SAY.

OUR FACILITY ADVISORY COMMITTEE CURRENTLY HAS AN ON-LINE OPEN HOUSE. I SENT THAT INFORMATION TO THE BOARD LAST WEEK TO LET THE BOARD KNOW.

IT'S ON THE WEBSITE. IT DOES TAKE SOME TIME TO GO THROUGH THAT ON-LINE OPEN HOUSE TO UNDERSTAND THE PROCESS THE RECOMMENDATION AND THE DATA THAT THE FACILITY ADVISORY COMMITTEE WAS LOOKING AT. WHAT THEIR WORK WAS TO TAKE THE PREVIOUS RECOMMENDATIONS AROUND OUR FACILITY PLANNING LOOK AT THAT AND LOOK AT THE DATA AND THEM MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR MOVING FORWARD. THEY HAVE DONE THAT.

THEY ARE SEEKING COMMUNITY FEEDBACK RIGHT NOW ON THAT AS WE WORK TO FINALIZE THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS.

>> TO GET US UP TO CAPACITY HOW MUCH MONEY ARE WE TALKING?

>> MARK I THINK I TALKED ALREADY.

DO YOU WANT TO REPEAT? >> JUST TO GET US UP TO CAPACITY OR JUST ENOUGH TO HAVE A LITTLE BREATHING ROOM HOW MUCH MONEY ARE WE TALKING IN THE FUTURE? HAVE WE COSTED THAT OUT YET?

>> I'LL JUST QUICKLY, THE PROJECTS THAT WERE RECOMMENDED ARE IN THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE AND ARE LISTED AND THE COST ARE LISTED IN THE FACILITY THE ON-LINE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT.

THERE IS A TABLE IN THAT FORMAT THAT HAS EACH OF THE PROJECTS THAT ARE RECOMMENDED AND THE COST OF EACH OF THOSE PROJECTS.

>> THANK YOU. DIRECTOR --

>> I'M ON MUTE. THERE WE GO.

I FORGOT THE MUTE PIECE. >> COULD YOU BUILD ON THE COMMUNITY INPUT AND THE ADVISORY PLAN.

HAS MUCH AS THE DISTRICT HAS LOOKED AT PAST PLANS AND MADE CHANGES MY WHOLE THOUGHT WITH THIS IMPACT OF COVID AND THE SHIFTING AND HOW OUR METHODOLOGY AND PEDESTRIAN GEE ARE GOING IN HOW THAT -- PEDAGOGY ARE GOING IN -- THAT IS NEW INFORMATION.

BECAUSE I DO THINK IT DOES CHANGE THE GAME AND IT'S -- WE WOULD BE REMISS NOT TO BE ABLE TO TAKE THIS INFORMATION AND BUILD UPON IT BECAUSE JUST CONTINUING WHAT WE'VE BURN I THINK WOULD BE A MISTAKE SO I LOOK FORWARD TO ANY COMMUNITY COMMENTS THAT LOOKS AT THAT AND THINKS ABOUT THAT EVEN AS YOU'RE LOOKING THROUGH IT. THAT WOULD BE GREAT TO HEAR ABOUT POTENTIAL AND DIFFERENT THINGS ABOUT HOW THINGS CAN BE ATTACKED. WE'VE HAD A HUGE GAME CHANGER WITH A PANDEMIC HITTING AND HOW DO WE LEARN AND BUILD FROM THAT IN GOING FORWARD FOR.5-10 YEARS AS WE LOOK OUT.

>> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? OKAY.

THANK YOU BARBARA, BRIAN. AND SALLY.

THE NEXT ITEM IS THE SUPERINTENDENT REPORT.

[F. Superintendent Report]

DR. HOLMAN, AN UPDATE ON THE RETURN TO SCHOOL TASK FORCE.

>> JUST TWO QUICK ITEMS TONIGHT. THE FIRST ITEM I DO WANT TO APPRISE THE BOARD OF IS THE REPLACEMENT OF OLDER LAPTOPS AND SALLY AND OUR NEW TECHNOLOGY DIRECTOR OF TECHNOLOGY OPERATIONS FOREST BAKER THEY REALLY HAVE BEEN ANALYZING THE FUNCTIONING, THE OUTPUTS OF OUR OLDER DEVICES.

AS THE BOARD KNOWS THAT WAS A QUICK RESPONSE TO A NEED TO BE ABLE TO PACKAGE THOSE LAPTOPS. GET THOSE INTO THE HANDS OF

[01:10:05]

STUDENTS WHEN THERE WAS NOT ANY LAPTOPS AVAILABLE.

ACROSS THE COUNTRY AS YOU KNOW THERE WERE MILLIONS AND MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF STUDENTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY THAT DIDN'T HAVE LAPTOPS TO BEGIN REMOTE LEARNING.

SALLY AND THE TEAM TRULY WERE ABLE TO TAKE OLDER INVENTORY AND DO THE ABSOLUTE BEST THEY COULD BUT THROUGH THEIR EVALUATION THEY'VE SAID FOR OUR STUDENTS TO HAVE THE TYPE OF EXPERIENCE WE WANT THEM TO IN REMOTE LEARNING WE DO NEED TO REPLACE THOSE OLDER LAPTOPS SO THEY WERE ABLE TO PROCURE THE 5800 DELL 391S AND FOR US THAT AS IMPORTANT DETAIL IN PROCURING THESE LAPTOPS THIS. IS A LAPTOP THAT HAS GONE THROUGH OUR FULL VETTING PROCESS.

WE DID A STUDENT AND PARENT ENGAGEMENT.

PROCESS AROUND IDENTIFYING A NEW STUDENT LAPTOP.

THAT WAS THREE YEARS AGO. AS WE WERE GOING FOR A REQUEST FOR INFORMATION PROCESS FROM VENDORS TO THEN SELECT A NEW STUDENT DEVICE. THIS IS A DEVICE THAT HAS BEEN IN THE SYSTEM FOR NOW TWO YEARS. IT'S BEEN GIVEN TO OUR 6TH AND 9TH GRADE STUDENTS THE LAST TWO YEARS.

IT IS DURABLE. IT HAS THE OPERATING AND PROCESSING SPEED TO ACTUALLY DELIVER THE TYPE OF EXPERIENCE WE WANT OUR STUDENTS TO HAVE. IT HAS DIGITAL INKING.

IT CAN FOLD AND BE A TABLET. IT'S A DEVICE THAT IS VERY NICE.

WE'VE GOTTEN GOOD FEEDBACK FROM OUR STUDENTS AND IT'S BEEN VERY DURABLE FOR US. PRICING WE GOT REALLY GOOD PRICING ON THIS LAPTOP IN THIS PURCHASE WHEN INVENTORY IS SCARS AS YOU KNOW WE'RE PLEASED TO RECEIVE GOOD PRICING ON THIS.

WE PUT THE ORDER IN LAST WEEK AND TURN AROUND TIME ANY TIME YOU ORDER A QUANTITY SUCH AS THIS IS ABOUT A MONTH TO A MONTH AND A HALF AND SO DEVICES WILL START SHOWING UP ON-SITE AROUND MID-DECEMBER SO WE CAN GET THOSE INTO THE HANDS OF STUDENTS COME JANUARY AND SO I SEE SALLY HAS TURNED HER CAMERA ON.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT IF THERE IS ANY DETAIL THAT I DIDN'T TALK ABOUT THAT SHE PROVIDES THAT FOR THE BOARD.

>> SURE. THE ONLY THING I WANTED TO SAY IS THE NUMBER IS 3190. SO, ITS A DELL 3190 AND THEY MEET OUR MINIMAL WEIGHT REQUIREMENTS.

WE WORKED HARD TO GET THE WEIGHT DOWN ON THE EQUIPMENT.

>> GREAT AND THE OTHER THING SALLY AND I TALKED ABOUT IS THERE ARE TWO THINGS. ONE WAS THE EXPERIENCE FACTOR FOR STUDENTS. STUDENTS USING THESE OLDER DEVICES WERE HAVING A DEGRADED EXPERIENCE ONE THAT DID NOT MEET OUR STANDARDS BUT ALSO TEACHERS TRYING TO MANAGE THE TECHNOLOGY ISSUES THAT WERE COMING UP FROM THESE OLDER DEVICES WAS JUST TAKING TIME AWAY FROM INSTRUCTION SO IT MEETS A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT INTERESTS SO WE'RE EXCITED TO GET THESE IN THE HANDS OF OUR STUDENTS. AND I SEE MARK'S HAND.

DO YOU WANT TO ASK A REQUEST ABOUT THE SPECIFIC TOPIC?

>> WELL, TWO QUESTIONS. I WANT TO COMMENT AND ONE QUESTION. I DON'T WANT IT TO BE CONCEIVED AS A CRITICISM. I WANTED TO SEE WHAT WE HAVE IN THE PIPELINE BECAUSE I KNOW HOW HARD YOU HAD TO SCRAMBLE FOR THE LAPTOPS AND I SAW ARTICLES OF FULL DISTRICTS NOT HAVING THE COMPUTERS THAT THEY NEEDED. SO APPLAUSE.

APPLAUSE. HOW MANY MORE ARE YOU LOOKING TO REPLACE THIS COMING SPRING? DID YOU SAY A QUARTER OF THEM OR

WHAT WAS THE NUMBER? >> 5800 DEVICES WILL BE REPLACED INVENTORY STARTING TO BE RECEIVED MID-DECEMBER.

>> RIGHT. THANK YOU.

>> YEAH. SALLY, DO YOU HAVE THE NAMES OF THE DEVICES SPECIFICALLY THAT YOUR TEAM HAS IDENTIFIED THAT

NEED TO BE REPLACED. >> SURE.

THE HEWLETT PACKER G1 AND HEWLETT PACKARD G2 WITH CELL RON PROCESSORS. THEY DON'T SERVICE OUR NEEDS

NOW. >> ANY ADDITIONAL BOARD MEMBER QUESTIONS ABOUT THE LAPTOP PROCUREMENT.

>> OKAY. THANK YOU, SALLY AND I HAVE ONE

[01:15:01]

OTHER ITEM I WANT TO UPDATE THE BOARD ON AND I'M GOING TO INVITE ASSOCIATE SUPERINTENDENT MATT GILL INGRAHAM TO JOIN US.

IN LAST WEEK'S MESSAGE TO THE COMMUNITY WE LET THEM KNOW THAT WE WERE DEVELOPING AND WOULD BE LAUNCHING A SURVEY TO STUDENT, STAFF AND FAMILIES REGARDING REMOTE LEARNING.

IMPLEMENTING REMOTE LEARNING FOR ALL OF US WAS BRAND-NEW.

WE DID THE ABSOLUTE BEST WE COULD LEARNING FROM WHAT WE DID IN THE SPRING KNOWING THAT THAT IMPLEMENTATION DIDN'T MEET THE NEED OF OUR TEACHERS OR STUDENTS.

SIGNIFICANT TRAINING AND WORK TO MAKE REMOTE LEARNING AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER.

WHAT WE KNOW IS WE WANT TO CONTINUE TO IMPROVE OUR IMPLEMENTATION OF REMOTE LEARNING FOR OUR STUDENT, STAFF AND FAMILIES SO WE'RE CRAFTING A SURVEY TO ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS TO BE ABLE TO GET FEEDBACK SO WE CAN CONTINUOUSLY IMPROVE THE PRODUCT THAT OUR STUDENTS ARE RECEIVING KNOWING THAT IT IS CRITICAL THAT THEY RECEIVE THE HIGHEST OF QUALITY IN THEIR REMOTE LEARNING THAT THEY CAN SO WITH THAT I'LL INVITE MATT TO JOIN US. HE HAS A FEW SLIDES HE WANTS TO PRESENT AS WELL TO PUT CONTEXT AROUND THE SURVEY THAT WE WILL

BE DOING. >> THANKS, DR. HOLMAN.

>> THERE WE GO. CAN YOU SEE MY SLIDE DECK OKAY? AS DR. HOLMAN MENTIONED WE ARE NOW FAR ENOUGH INTO REMOTE LEARNING EXPERIENCE THIS YEAR THAT WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO ASSESS WHAT IS AND WHAT IS NOT WORKING ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE FOR OUR STUDENTS. SO I'M GOING TO SHARE A COUPLE OF SLIDES THAT I'LL TALK ABOUT THE PROCESS OF THE DATA COLLECTION THAT WE'RE ASKING FROM OUR FAMILIES AND FROM OUR STAFF IN THE COMING WEEKS. WE ACTUALLY HAVE JUST FINISHED OR WRAPPING UP GATHERING STUDENT SURVEY DATA SO, I'LL TALK ABOUT HOW THE STUDENT DATA THAT WE HAVE IS ALSO INFORMING AND THE INFORMATION THAT WE'RE NEEDING FOR OUR PARENTS AND STAFF TO HELP US GET A FULL PICTURE AND UNDERSTANDING OF BOTH WHAT THAT EXPERIENCE IS AND ALSO WHAT ARE SOME OF THE DRIVERS OR LEVERS THAT WE WANT TO BE TENDING TO CHANGE PRACTICES THAT ARE GOING TO BETTER SUPPORT STUDENTS AS WE'RE DOING OUR REMOTE LEARNING.

AND I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE FOUR OF OUR DIRECTORS THAT HAVE BEEN LEADING THIS WORK EMILY, JOHNNY AND TIM -- HAVE BEEN REALLY COLLABORATING TO THINK ABOUT THE STUDENT EXPERIENCE THE DATE THAT THAT WE HAVE AVAILABLE AS WELL AS HOW WE WOULD APPLY THIS INFORMATION SO THAT'S NOT A SITUATION WHERE WE'RE JUST GATHERING INFORMATION BUT THAT WE'RE ABLE TO TAKE ACTION AS A RESULT OF THAT. NEXT WEEK WE'RE GOING TO BE LAUNCHING A SURVEY FOR PARENTS AND STAFF AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR FAMILIES AND OUR STAFF MEMBERS UNDERSTAND WHAT IS IT THAT WE'RE GOING TO BE DOING WITH THIS INFORMATION.

SO OUR HOPE IS THAT WE'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO IMPROVE THE REMOTE LEARNING EXPERIENCE. GATHER INFORMATION IN ORDER TO MAKE CHANGES SOME COURSE CORRECTION THAT'S CAN IMPROVE THE EXPERIENCE FOR OUR STUDENTS. WE WANT TO THINK ABOUT THE STUDENT'S NEEDS. WHAT IS IT THAT INDIVIDUALLY AND COLLECTIVELY GROUPS OF OUR STUDENTS MIGHT NEED THAT AND IF THEY HAVE NEEDS THAT ARE NOT BEING MET.

THIS IS WORK THAT IS REALLY ALSO NEEDS TO BE CROSS DIVISIONAL OR CROSS DEPARTMENTAL SO WE'RE THINKING ABOUT HOW DO WE ENSURE THAT THE INFORMATION THAT IS GATHERED IS NOT JUST USED IN ONE SMALL PART OF OUR ORGANIZATION BUT IS MORE BROADLY SHARED ACROSS MULTIPLE DEPARTMENTS AND SCHOOLS TO INFORM SCHOOLS AND PRACTICES ACROSS THE ORGANIZATION.

WE WANT TO BE RESPECTFUL OF THE TIME AND THE ENERGY THAT IT TAKES FOR OUR FAMILIES AND STAFF TO COMPLETE SURVEYS.

SO THAT TEAM OF DIRECTORS THAT WE JUST MENTIONED HAVE ALSO BEEN LOOKING AT WHAT DATA DO WE HAVE AVAILABLE TO US RIGHT NOW SO IF WE HAVE INFORMATION AVAILABLE US TO WE'RE NOT NECESSARILY ASKING TO GET THE SAME DATA BUT PERHAPS TO HAVE OUR FAMILIES AND PARENTS UNDERSTAND SOME OF THE DATA. WE HAVE IDENTIFIED FOUR KEY AREAS THAT WE'RE -- AS WE'RE BREAKING DOWN THE EXPERIENCE.

[01:20:05]

ACADEMIC NEEDS, STUDENT RELATIONSHIPS, STUDENT ENGAGEMENT AND LEARNING MODEL AND SO CURRENTLY FOR ACADEMIC NEEDS WE HAVE SOME OF DATA. OUR CURRENT GRADES.

MISSING ASSIGNMENTS. WE'VE ALREADY SURVEYED STUDENTS.

WE'VE BEEN DOING A PANORAMA SURVEY WORKING WITH THIS ORGANIZATION FOR SEVERAL YEARS AGO AND THEY ARE RESEARCHERS, THIS IS THEIR AREA OF EXPERTISE IN TERMS OF DEVELOPING SURVEYS AND TOOLS THAT CAN HELP INFORM CHANGES IN PRACTICES FOR AN EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT. AND THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME WE'VE SURVEYED HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS.

WE'VE BEEN SERVING OUR UPPER ELEMENTARY A AND UPPER MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS. AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL WE HAVE INCOMPLETE DATA. WE ARE GOING TO BE GETTING A PRETTY GOOD PICTURE. THE STAFF AND THE PARENT SURVEY, WE'RE GOING TO ASK QUESTIONS THAT WILL HELP US UNDERSTAND FROM THE ADULTS THAT ARE WORKING TO SUPPORT STUDENTS GETTING US TOWARDS WHAT IS IT THAT WE MIGHT DO TO HELP SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS.

ON THE RELATIONSHIP SIDE WE HAVE STUDENT PANORAMA DATA THAT SURVEYS JUST THE CLOSED SO WE'RE STARTING TO GET THE RESULTS AND LOOKING AT THE CONNECTIONS. WE'VE TALKED ABOUT -- IT'S INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT AND ALL THE MORE SO NOW THAT WE'RE REMOTE.

LOOKING AT DAILY ATTENDANCE. WE'RE ABLE TO TRACK ON-LINE MINUTES. HOW MUCH TIME ARE STUDENTS MEETING IN TEAM MEETINGS. ALSO ASKING STUDENTS THEIR EXPERIENCE IN TERMS OF HOW MUCH EFFORT? HOW EASY OR DIFFICULT? THEIR CLASSES MAY BE AND FINALLY AT THE LEARNING MODEL WE'RE ASKING OUR STUDENTS QUESTIONS AROUND SATISFACTION OF THE TIME WITH TEACHER AND WORKING WITH FRIENDS AND EASE OF ACCESS. SO WE HAVE QUITE A BIT OF DATA ALREADY. AND WHAT WE WILL BE DOING IN THE COMING WEEKS IS PARTICULARLY WITH OUR CENTRAL LEADERSHIP TEAM AND DISTRICT LEADERSHIP TEAM STARTING TO DIG INTO THE STUDENT SURVEY BUT WE NEED OUR PARENTS AND STAFF HELP US TO BE ABLE TO REFLECT WHAT THEY SEE WHAT THEIR PERCEPTIONS WHAT THEIR REALITY IS FOR THAT STUDENT EXPERIENCE. AND SO WE'RE GOING TO BE DEPLOYING THAT SURVEY NEXT WEEK. WE'RE FINALIZING IT AND WORKING WITH OUR CENTRAL LEADERSHIP TEAM AND PANORAMA THIS WEEK AND WE WILL BE SENDING THAT INFORMATION OUT AND THEN AS WE GET THOSE RESULTS BACK EARLY TO MID--- MID-NOVEMBER WE WILL START DIGESTING AND IDENTIFYING ACTIONS WE CAN TAKE IN RESPONSE

TO THOSE SURVEY RESULTS. >> THANK YOU, MATT FOR SHARING THAT INFORMATION. APPRECIATE ALL OF THE WORK THAT IS GOING INTO THIS TO BE THOUGHTFUL ABOUT COLLECTING THIS DATA SO WE CAN WORK TOWARDS IMPROVING OUR IMPLEMENTATION OF REMOTE LEARNING FOR OUR STUDENTS AND THEIR EXPERIENCE.

ANY QUESTIONS FROM OUR BOARD MEMBERS ABOUT THAT?

SIRI. >> THANK YOU.

SO AS YOU GET THESE RESULTS IN AND THEY ARE ABLE TO HAVE THE TIME TO PROCESS AND ANALYZE WILL THERE IS BE A PLACE ON THE WEBSITE TO BE ABLE TO SEE THE DATA ON THEIR OWN AS WELL?

>> YEAH. THAT IS A GREAT QUESTION AND ONE THAT WE'VE ASKED OUR PANORAMA TO ASK WHAT ARE SOME OF THE BEST PRACTICES ACROSS THE NATION IN DISTRICT THAT HAVE DONE THIS WELL IN TERMS OF SHARING THE DATA.

AND IT'S WITH ANY DATA THERE IS MOUNTAINS OF DATA SO WE ARE GETTING SOME MODELS OF HOW WE CAN PRESENT THIS AND SHARE THIS WITH OUR COMMUNITY STAKEHOLDERS SO THAT WE'RE COLLECTIVELY HAVING A COMMON UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THAT EXPERIENCE IS.

>> SO WILL YOU ALSO ABLE TO BREAK IT DOWN BY SCHOOL? SO THAT THERE IS A MORE TARGETED IDEA OR ARE THE NUMBERS TOO

SMALL? >> THAT IS A GREAT QUESTION.

RIGHT NOW OUR STUDENT RESPONSE RATE IS REALLY GOOD.

[01:25:01]

AND WE'RE CONTINUING TO DO FOLLOW-UP PARTICULARLY TO ENSURE IS THAT WE'RE HEARING FROM STUDENT'S EXPERIENCES WHO MAY BE LESSEN GAUGED AT THE MOMENT AND WE WANT TO UNDERSTAND WHY THAT IS. OUR CURRENT RESPONSE RATE WAS AROUND 73% WHICH IS REALLY HIGH PARTICULARLY FOR THIS TYPE OF SURVEY. AND NATIONALLY -- SO WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUES TO WORK TOGETHER FOR ADDITIONAL RESPONSES FROM OUR STUDENTS. WE IN TERMS OF REPORTING OUT WE'RE ABLE TO LOOK OUT AT A DISTRICT LEVEL AND THEN WE SHARE THE DATA AT A BUILDING LEVEL AND ALSO LOOK AT IT AND SEGREGATE IT FROM THE A SIMILAR PROGRAM GROUPS AND STUB GROUPS OF STUDENTS TO SEE HOW THAT EXPERIENCE MIGHT BE FOR STUDENTS WHO ARE IN A PARTICULAR SUB GROUP OR AND EVEN AND THIS IS ONE OF -- TIM IS JUST A GENIUS AT.

FOR WHOM THIS DATASET MIGHT BE TRUE SUCH AS MISSING GRADES -- HOW IS THEIR EXPERIENCE? WHAT ARE THEY TELLING US THAT MIGHT BE DIFFERENT OR THAT SOMEHOW MIGHT BE MISSED IN THE UNIVERSAL CONTEXT WHEN WE LOOK AT OVER-ALL RESULTS MAY SEEM ONE WAY. SO WE'VE GOT A LOT OF WORK TO DO TO DIG INTO THE DATA AND FIGURE OUT THE BEST WAYS TO REPRESENT THIS FOR OUR COMMUNITY AND ALSO FOR OUR ORGANIZATION SO THAT WE'RE ABLE TO USE IT INTELLIGENTLY TO INFORM CHANGE IS AS I LOOK AT THE ENGAGEMENT DATA IT IS PRETTY CLEAR THAT THERE IS STILL DISPROPORTIONALITY OF RACE IN TERMS OF WHO'S ENGAGING. ARE YOU TRYING TO OVER SAMPLE TO ENSURE THAT WE GET STRONGER FEEDBACK IN REGARDS SO THAT

VOICE IS NOT LOST. >> WE DISCUSSED THAT TODAY AND THAT TEAM HAS DEVELOPED A PLAN WITH HOW TO GO BACK BECAUSE THEY ARE ABLE TO SEE WHO HAS RESPONDED THUS FAR.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF TIME WHERE WE'RE STILL COLLECTING THE DATA AND THAT GIVES US TIME TO OPEN UP AND SOLICIT STUDENT VOICE PARTICULARLY FROM GROUPS THAT WOULD BE UNDER REPRESENTED IN THE SURVEY.

>> THAT IS GREAT. I'M SO GLAD THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY THOUGHT ABOUT IT AND MOVING ON IT.

THE ONLY OTHER PIECE WE'VE BEEN AT IT FOR SIX WEEKS.

MY CONCERN IS TIMING IN THE SENSE OF URGENCY AND HOW QUICKLY THAT CAN FEEDBACK INTO AN ORGANIZATION BECAUSE HALF OF THE YEAR WILL BE GONE BY THE ENDS OF DECEMBER.

SO I GUESS I WOULD PLANT THAT OF THE URGENCY COMPONENT.

>> YEP. AGREED.

>> MARK, DID YOU HAVE A QUESTION?

>> -- ARE WE LOOKING AT MOST OF THE SURVEYS AND I'M SORRY I WASN'T -- I'M NOT INFORMED BUT ARE THESE MORE OPEN ENDED SURVEYS? ARE THEY MULTIPLE CHOICE? MORE QUANTITATIVE OR QUALITATIVE INFORMATION THAT WE'RE

GATHERING? >> THAT IS A GREAT QUESTION.

SO THIS SURVEY THIS IS A NEW SURVEY TO US.

THIS WAS A SURVEY DEVELOPED FOR ITS SCHOOL RETURNING TO SCHOOL IN A REMOTE ENVIRONMENT. SO HISTORICALLY OUR WORK WITH PANORAMA THEY'VE BEEN SELECTED CHOICE.

IT'S A MULTIPLE CHOICE USUALLY ON A SCALE OF HORRIBLE TO GREAT AND THIS SURVEY ACTUALLY HAS A COMBINATION OF SELECTED RESPONSE SO USUALLY AGAIN ON A SCALE AS WELL AS SOME OPEN ENDED PLACES WHERE STUDENTS ARE ASKED FOR COMMENTARY AND SPECIFICALLY IF THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT THEY SPECIFICALLY NEED SUPPORT OR HELP WITH. SITES A DIFFERENT SURVEY THAN ONE WE'VE USED BEFORE AND THAT IS GOING TO TAKE US -- SOME OF

[01:30:01]

THOSE THINGS ARE GOING TO TAKE US AT A DISTRICT LEVEL A LITTLE LONGER TO WORK THROUGH ALTHOUGH THE BUILDING LEVEL PARTICULARLY FOR STUDENTS THAT ARE INDICATING ANY KIND OF SPECIFIC NEEDS THE SCHOOLS WILL HAVE ACCESS TO THAT AND THEY WILL BE ABLE TO REACH OUT TO CONNECT WITH THOSE STUDENTS.

>> THE REASON I'M ASKING IS THIS WEEK THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF CONVERSATION OFF FACE BOOK OUT OF REDMOND HIGH SCHOOL THAT THE MEETINGS FORMAT IS JUST NOT WORKING FOR PARENTS TO BE ABLE TO CHECK TO SEE IF ASSIGNMENTS ARE IN.

SO PARENTS ARE BEING TOLD TO ABANDON THAT AND GO TO SKY --

>> THAT IS NOT SOMETHING I FEEL I WOULD ABLE TO SPEAK TO.

>> I'M SORRY. >> I THINK I CAN SAY THIS AND IF SALLY WANTS TO CHIME IN ABOUT TEAMS IN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ASSIGNMENT FEATURE. SKYWARD IS THE RECORD THAT REALLY THEN LEADS INTO OUR REPORT CARDS AND THAT IS WHERE WE TRACK STUDENT CREDIT AND SO SKYWARD IS THE AUTHORITY AND SO BUT SALLY DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE TEAMS ASSIGNMENT FEATURE AND HOW TEACHERS WOULD BE USING THAT AND HOW WHAT THE DIFFERENCE IS MAYBE BETWEEN THE TWO AND IF WE DON'T HAVE ALL OF THE ANSWERS TONIGHT THEN WE CAN FOLLOW-UP WITH THE BOARD.

>> I CAN SPEAK GENERALLY AND WE CAN FOLLOW-UP WITH MORE DETAILS BECAUSE I'M NOT THE EXPERT ON EVERYTHING.

BUT WE HAVE A TEAM OF EXPERTS. SO GENERALLY WE NOTICED SOME HICCUPS. ONE OF OUR TEAM MEMBERS HAS CHIN IN THE SCHOOL WHO DID NOT RECEIVE AN ASSIGNMENT DIGEST.

SOME PEOPLE DIDN'T GET THEIR ASSIGNMENT DIGEST.

OTHERS DID. WE KNOW SOME TEACHERS EVEN THOUGH HAVE THE UP INSTRUCTION --S.

AND WE'VE GOT SOME MISSES THERE SO THERE IS SOME TRAINING AND WE'VE REPORTED SOME GLITCHES TO MICROSOFT AS OF TODAY.

SO WE ARE LOOKING AT ALL ASPECTS OF TRAINING, COMMUNICATION AND BOTH WITH OUR PARENTS AND OUR TEACHERS AND OUR STUDENTS TO MAKE SURE THE ASSIGNMENTS THAT WOULD HIT THE DIGEST THAT THE PARENTS ARE REFERRING TO ON FACE BOOK ARE APPROPRIATELY LOGGED BUT THOSE MIGHT NOT BE ALL OF THE ASSIGNMENTS THAT ARE ACTUALLY IN OUR FORMAL SYSTEM WHICH IS SKYWARD.

WE'LL FOLLOW-UP WITH A BRIEF OR SOMETHING.

>> THANK YOU, SALLY. GREAT.

AND ERIC THAT COMPLETES MY SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT.

I'LL HAND IT BACK TO YOU. >> GREAT.

THANK YOU. THE NEXT ITEM ON THE AGENDA

[G. Closing Items]

TONIGHT AND THE LAST ITEM ARE BOARD MEMBER COMMENTS.

WOULD ANY BOARD MEMBERS LIKE TO MAKE ANY COMMENTS TONIGHT?

DR. -- >> I JUST HAVE ONE QUESTION THAT HAS COME UP AND IT'S THE FILTERING THAT WE SOMETIMES HAVE ON OUR SYSTEM. I WAS TALKING WITH A GROUP OF STUDENTS AND THERE WAS AN ISSUE OF ACCESSING -- CON ACADEMY.

I'M JUST PUTTING THAT OUT. >> I DON'T KNOW THE DETAILS OF WHAT IS IN IT. THEY HAD YOUTUBE VIDEOS WHICH YOUTUBE IS BLOCKED. I HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY REPORTS SO, I'LL HAVE TO CHECK WITH THE TEAM AND WE'LL FOLLOW-UP.

>> THAT WOULD BE GREAT. THANKS.

>> I JUST WANTED TO REMIND EVERYBODY THAT WE DID GET AN VIN TAKES AS BOARD DIRECTORS TO ATTEND THE HOUSE EDUCATION COMMITTEE LISTENING TOURS. AND I DID GET CONFIRMATION FROM WASDA THAT ONLY TWO DIRECTORS CAN BE ON A PARTICULAR MEETING AT A TIME SO, I HAVE'S SIGNED UP FOR THE 29 THE IN THE WEEK.

THERE IS NOT A LINEAGE SESSION ON THE 29TH AND THEN THERE ARE TWO NOVEMBER DATES. IF YOU CAN LET ME KNOW IF YOU PLAN TO PARTICIPATE THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL.

THANK YOU. >> OKAY.

[01:35:01]

ANY OTHER COMMENTS BEFORE WE MOVE ON? OKAY. FOLLOWING TONIGHT'S BOARD MEETING THE BOARD WILL BE MEETING IN STUDY SESSION.

AND THE TOPICS ARE BOARD DOC TRAINING AND AN EXECUTIVE SESSION FOLLOWING REGARDING PROPERTY FOR THE PURPOSE TO CONSIDER THE SELECTION OF A SITE OR THE ACQUISITION OF REAL ESTATE BY LEASE OR PURCHASE AND THE MINIMUM PRICE OF WHICH REAL ESTATE WILL BE OFFERED. THE NEXT MEETING WILL BE ON NOVEMBER 9. PARTLY IT IS SCHEDULED FOR THE STUDY SESSION AT 5:00 P.M. IN PERSON FOLLOWED BY A BOARD MEETING AT 7:00 P.M. BUT I EXPECT THAT GOVERNOR INSLEY'S ORDER WILL BE EXTENDED SO THE MEETINGS WILL BE STARTING AT 5:00 P.M. AND THE STUDY SESSION FOLLOWING AND HELD REMOTELY.

THAT IS THE END OF OUR AGENDA. I'LL ENTERTAIN A MOTION TO ADJOURN THE OCTOBER 26TH MEETING.
