GOOD EVENING TRUSTEES, SUPERINTENDENT HOUSE.

[CALL TO ORDER]

[00:00:02]

TRUSTEE HERNANDEZ TO THAT QUESTION ON TOP OF THE ENROLLMENT UNIT, WHAT WE'VE DONE IS AUTOMATE OUR ENROLLMENT PROCESS.

SO WHAT WE DID WANT TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR FAMILIES TO ENROLL IN CAMPUSES.

AND WITHIN THAT, TRADITIONALLY IN THE PAST, WHAT [INAUDIBLE] WAS THAT WAS WHAT FAMILIES WOULD HAVE TO DO WAS GO DIRECTLY TO THAT CAMPUS, THAT ZONE SCHOOL TO ENROLL THEMSELVES.

[ADJOURN TO CLOSED OR EXECUTIVE SESSION UNDER SECTIONS 551.004, 551.071, 551.072, 551.073, 551.074, 551.076, 551.082, 551.0821, 551.083, 551.084, AND 551.089 OF THE TEXAS GOVERNMENT CODE FOR THE PURPOSES LISTED UNDER SECTION C]

SOMETIMES THAT WAS CUMBERSOME, SOMETIMES I WOULD FACE SITUATIONS.

SO WHAT WE DO IS MAKE THAT EASIER AND MAKE AN AUTOMATED PROCESS WHERE THEY CAN GO TO THE CAMPUS OR COME DIRECTLY HERE TO HATTIE MAE WHITE AND ENROLL DIRECTLY IN THAT SCHOOL.

AND THEN WE INFORM THE SCHOOL AND TALK TO THE CAMPUS TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR THAT FAMILY TO ENROLL AND ALSO JUST PROCESS THEIR PAPERWORK AND OTHER THINGS.

WE'VE ALSO STREAMLINED THE DOCUMENTATION NEEDED.

BEGINNING SCHOOL YEAR. WE MADE IT EASIER FOR, ONE, OUR COMMUNITIES TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY NEED TO ENROLL THEIR FAMILIES.

WE HAVE A LOT OF RECENT IMMIGRANTS WHO MAY NOT HAVE ALL THE DOCUMENTATION, SO WE STREAMLINE THAT, WORKED WITH LEGAL DEPARTMENT, WORK WITH OUR DISTRICT TO ENSURE THAT INFORMATION WAS OUT THERE AND MAKE SURE OUR CAMPUSES UNDERSTOOD ALL PARAMETERS AS FAR AS ENROLLING A FAMILY THAT WAS NEEDED, WHICH ALSO EASED SOME OF THE I THINK,

[REGULAR BOARD MEETING RECONVENES FOR OPEN SESSION]

SOME OF THE HURDLES THAT FAMILIES HAD TO ENROLL THEIR CHILDREN INTO OUR SCHOOLS.

IN ADDITION, WE'RE LOOKING AT SCHOOL CHOICE OPTIONS BEYOND THIS AND ALSO PROGRAM OPTIONS AS FAR AS POTENTIAL EXPANSION.

BASED ON INTEREST, TOMORROW, WE'RE GOING TO BE WE'RE GOING TO BE PROVIDING A SURVEY IN BOTH ENGLISH AND SPANISH TO THE PUBLIC TO GAIN FEEDBACK ON THEIR THOUGHTS AROUND SCHOOL CHOICE, NOT JUST THE PROCESS, BUT ALSO PROGRAM OPTIONS.

AND THAT WILL HELP US AND GUIDE US AND PROVIDE US INFORMATION AS WE GO THROUGH THIS TRANSFORMATION WORK TO SEE WHAT WOULD BE NEEDED IN CERTAIN COMMUNITIES TO ENGAGE STUDENTS AND KEEP THEM ENGAGED IN OUR SCHOOLS AND ATTRACT THEM TO HISD.

WE DO SEE AN EXPANSION OF CHARTER SCHOOLS IN OUR AREA.

I WILL SAY ACROSS THE STATE IN HARRIS COUNTY, OUR CHARTER SCHOOLS ARE ALSO FACING A DECLINE IN ENROLLMENT BECAUSE THERE'S SO MANY OPENING UP.

WE HAVE TO BE ATTENTIVE TO THAT AND ALSO LOOK AT BEST PRACTICES TO ATTRACT THESE FAMILIES BACK TO OUR SCHOOLS AND PROVIDE THEM OPPORTUNITIES TO GROW AND THRIVE IN HISD.

THANK YOU DR. LOVE. ONE OF THE OTHER THINGS THAT I'LL MENTION ON TOP OF THAT, WHICH I THINK YOU ALL HAVE HEARD ON A FEW DIFFERENT OCCASIONS, OF COURSE, THE STRATEGIC APPROACH IN TERMS OF EXPANDING OUR PRE-K THROUGHOUT THE DISTRICT AS WELL.

WE FEEL LIKE IF WE CAN EXPAND AND GET THEM EARLY, WE CAN KEEP SOME OF THEM EARLY AS WELL.

SO OF COURSE, WE HAD A TARGET OF ABOUT, I THINK 18 OR 18, 19, 20.

WE ENDED UP OPENING UP 24 NEW PROGRAMS THIS YEAR AND WANT TO CONTINUE TO DO THAT ON AN ANNUAL BASIS. OKAY.

SO I THINK THERE'S A RIGHT WAY AND A WRONG WAY TO CLOSE SCHOOLS.

AND I THINK PART OF THE RIGHT WAY IS TO LET THE PUBLIC KNOW WHEN THE TIME LINE AND I SEE THIS TRANSFORMATION TIMELINE, BUT THERE ARE REALLY ANY SPECIFICS.

SO IS THERE SOME MORE SPECIFICS ABOUT WHEN PROPOSED SCHOOL CLOSURES WOULD ACTUALLY COME OUT? AGAIN, OUR TEAM IS IS WORKING THROUGH.

AND. DR.

CRUZ, WILL YOU SHARE IN REFERENCE TO WHERE WE WANT TO BE IN? SURE. SO, OF COURSE, AGAIN, NO DECISIONS HAVE BEEN MADE AROUND WHETHER WHAT SCHOOL CLOSURES WILL TAKE PLACE.

BUT JUST REFERRING TO THE BOARD'S OWN POLICY, I BELIEVE ANY ANNOUNCEMENTS AROUND SCHOOL CLOSURES NEED TO BE MADE, IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN, BY NOVEMBER OF ANY GIVEN YEAR, TO GIVE FAMILIES ENOUGH TIME TO FOR THE PRECEDING YEAR, TO GIVE FAMILIES ENOUGH TIME TO MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS AROUND THE SCHOOL CHOICE PROGRAM PROCESS, ETC..

RIGHT NOW THE PHASE THAT WE'RE ACTIVELY WORKING ON IS ON THAT DECISION MAKING FRAMEWORK.

SO LOOKING AT AND WORKING WITH ALVAREZ AND MIRASOL AND LOOKING AT A LOT OF DIFFERENT DATA POINTS, SUPERINTENDENT INDICATED THINGS SUCH AS CURRENT ENROLLMENT, PROJECTED ENROLLMENT, FINANCES, ACADEMICS REALLY WORKING THROUGH THE SYSTEM AT GREAT CITY SCHOOLS TO PUT A WHOLE BUNCH OF INPUTS INTO THIS FRAMEWORK SO THAT THEN WE CAN COST OUT DIFFERENT SCENARIOS SO THAT AS A STARTING POINT, WE UNDERSTAND WHAT ARE THE MENU OF OPTIONS AVAILABLE TO US AS A DISTRICT.

AGAIN, NO DECISIONS HAVE BEEN BEING MADE, BUT WE NEED TO GET CLARITY AROUND IF WE DO THIS, WE SAVE THIS AMOUNT OF MONEY.

IF WE DO THIS PLUS THIS, WE SAVE THIS AMOUNT OF MONEY.

UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE TRADEOFFS.

AND THEN, AS THE SUPERINTENDENT INDICATED, HAVING THAT ENGAGEMENT WITH THE BOARD, WITH THE PUBLIC SO THAT A PLAN CAN BE MADE THAT IS GOING TO BE BEST FOR KIDS, THAT'S GOING TO

[RECOGNITIONS]

GET US TO A FINANCIAL SITUATION.

SO LONG WAY TO RESPOND IS IF HYPOTHETICALLY THERE WERE TERMINATION AROUND CLOSURES, IT WOULD HAVE TO.

CONSISTENT WITH BOARD POLICY, IT WOULD BECOME PUBLIC BY NOVEMBER OF THE PRECEDING YEAR SO THAT FAMILIES HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO MAKE DECISIONS AROUND THEIR CHILDREN'S EDUCATION.

OKAY. THANK YOU. AND WHAT OTHER BIG TICKET TRADEOFFS ARE BEING CONSIDERED? WHEN YOU SAY BIG TICKET TRADE OFFS, GIVE ME AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT YOU MEAN.

CLOSING A SCHOOL, RIGHT, IS HOW ONE WAY TO SAVE MONEY.

WHAT'S ANOTHER BIG TICKET BUDGET SAVINGS? I THINK THAT'S A PART OF WHAT WE'RE DEVELOPING RIGHT NOW IS KIND OF THE WHY.

[00:05:01]

THAT'S A PART OF THE PROCESS.

AND NO, I'M NOT ASKING FOR THE LINE.

I'M ASKING FOR WHAT OTHER BIG TICKET ITEMS ARE BEING.

BUT I THINK THE WHAT IS A PART OF THE PROCESS THAT WE'RE DEVELOPING BETWEEN NOW AND AND IN JANUARY, THAT IS A BIG PART OF WHAT WE'RE WE'RE FOCUSED ON IN JANUARY.

WE SHOULD KNOW SOME OTHER BIG TICKET ITEMS THAT ARE BEING CONSIDERED.

WE SHOULD HAVE MORE INSIGHT IN REFERENCE TO THE WHAT AS YOU'VE ARTICULATED.

OKAY. THANK YOU.

GUTHRIE YOU WROTE TO.

ANYONE ELSE FOR ROUND ONE.

TRUSTEE WADE. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE CRUZ.

REAL QUICK ON THE PRE-K PROGRAMS, SINCE WE KNOW THAT'S WHERE WE CAN GROW AN OPPORTUNITY TO GAIN STUDENTS AND GAIN INTEREST IN HISD, WHAT PROGRAMS ARE BEING CONSIDERED IN PRE-K THAT ARE ACTUALLY GOING TO BE DIFFERENTIATED ENOUGH TO GET GRAB THOSE FAMILIES? SO. ARE WE THINKING OF NEW, INTERESTING AND INNOVATIVE WAYS TO ATTRACT FAMILIES TO COMPETE WITH THE CHARTERS OR TO COMPETE WITH ANYTHING HOME SCHOOLING OR WHATEVER WE'RE LOOKING AT? BUT I DON'T SEE YET ANYTHING THAT MAKES ME SEE THAT OUR PRE-K IS OR ANY DIFFERENT THAN ANYTHING ELSE.

AND I DON'T KNOW.

BUT I'D LOVE TO SEE OR I'D LOVE TO HEAR EVENTUALLY.

WHAT THE PLANS ARE FOR OR WHAT WITH THE CURRENT STATE OF OUR PRE K PROGRAMING LOOKS LIKE.

I'M VERY CONFIDENT.

I'VE HAD A CHANCE TO VISIT SEVERAL PRE-K CLASSROOMS THIS YEAR.

OF COURSE, IN THE LAST YEAR AROUND WHAT WE'RE DOING.

I THINK THEY'LL STAND UP TO ANY.

BUT I THINK ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PIECES IN TERMS OF THIS EXPANSION OF PRE-K IS REALLY UNDERSTANDING THE WHERE IN OUR COMMUNITY.

WE HAVE UTILIZED SOME SOME RESEARCH FROM RICE UNIVERSITY TO HELP US BETTER UNDERSTAND, YOU KNOW, PARENTS LIVE X NUMBER OF MILES AWAY FROM A SCHOOL.

THEY'RE LESS LIKELY OR MORE LIKELY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A PROGRAM.

SO WE'VE USED THAT APPROACH AND THAT RESEARCH TO HELP US TARGET.

AND I THINK THAT'S ONE OF THE REASONS WHY WE HAD THE KIND OF GROWTH IN PRE-K THAT WE HAD THIS YEAR.

WE WERE ABLE TO TARGET IT AND AND FOCUS ON THE WHERE.

AND MY ASSUMPTION IS YOU'RE LOOKING AT EDUCATIONAL.

QUALITY. WELL, NOT ONLY QUALITY, BUT JUST SOME INVENTIVE THINGS THAT ARE OUT THERE BESIDES JUST THE STANDARD.

HOW FAR DO THEY LIVE? I MEAN, THOSE THINGS ARE IMPORTANT, AND I AGREE.

BUT THERE'S ALSO GOT TO BE OTHER, I THINK, THINGS OUT THERE THAT ONE OF THE IMPORTANT MOST IMPORTANT PIECES IS SOME OF THE WORK THAT DR.

BIRD IS WORKING ON, AS WELL AS IN HAVING STRONG SUPPORT AND CURRICULUM AND AND IMPLEMENTATION SPECIALISTS THAT ARE BEING ABLE TO SUPPORT PRE-K, TEACHER QUALITY INSTRUCTION AND RESULTS WILL ALWAYS MAKE A MAJOR DIFFERENCE.

SO NOT JUST HAVING THESE STUDENTS IN, YOU KNOW, TEACHING THEM TO READ AND WRITE, BUT MAKING SURE THAT WE ARE PUTTING THE BEST, YOU KNOW, CURRICULUM IN FRONT OF THEM, MAKING SURE THE BEST TRAINING IS HAPPENING ON A ON AN ANNUAL BASIS WITH OUR TEACHERS AS WELL IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.

TRUSTEE GUIDRY.

YOU KNOW, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ENROLLMENT.

AND I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS AN APPROPRIATE TIME TO MENTION IT, BUT I SAW OUT EARLIER AS I WAS PULLING IN THE ENROLLMENT BUS.

IS THAT SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN DISCUSS AND WHAT'S THE PR AROUND THAT AND MAKING IT KNOWN TO THE COMMUNITY AND TO OUR PARENTS ABOUT THIS ENROLLMENT BUS? AND THAT'S ACTUALLY WHAT I WHAT I MENTIONED EARLIER.

THAT'S OUR NEW UNIT AND THAT ENROLLMENT UNIT WE'LL BE ABLE TO DEPLOY IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT WAYS THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY.

WE CAN ACTUALLY HAVE, YOU KNOW, TEN PEOPLE AT A TIME TO SIT ON THAT ON THAT UNIT.

SO TODAY WAS THE ACTUAL RIBBON CUTTING FOR THAT.

AND WE YOU KNOW, WE'LL HAVE SOME PRESS AND ADVERTISE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE THE, YOU KNOW, THE OPPORTUNITIES OF WHEN WE'LL GET OUT TO DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES AND HOW WE'LL DEPLOY IT. SO WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING IT OUT.

OF COURSE, TODAY WAS THE FIRST DAY, SO I LOOK FORWARD TO THE COMMUNITY UNDERSTANDING HOW MUCH OF A VALUE ADD IT CAN BE IN CRITICAL AREAS THROUGHOUT THROUGHOUT HISTORY.

THANK. TRUSTEE BLUEFORD-DANIELS.

[00:10:01]

Y'ALL HAD A RIBBON CUTTING PARTY AND DIDN'T TELL US? WE MISSED IT. WE MISSED THE RIBBON CUTTING PARTY.

WE KNOW WE DON'T WANT TO MISS ONE PARTY.

DON'T BE COUNTING MY TIME THAT [INAUDIBLE] TALKING AND I'M GLAD.

I'M GLAD YOU BROUGHT UP ABOUT THAT.

AND YOU BOTH MAKE REALLY, REALLY GOOD POINTS.

ESPECIALLY ABOUT THE FACT THAT WE'VE GOT TO HAVE SOMETHING THAT IS DISTINGUISHES US FROM CHARTER SCHOOLS AND OTHER SCHOOLS, ETC., TO ATTRACT OUR CHILDREN.

BUT I WOULD GO FURTHER AND SAY, LIKE YOU TALK ABOUT THE RICE UNIVERSITY STUDY AND THAT'S DONE.

THEY AIN'T COMING TO MY NEIGHBORHOOD.

THEY AIN'T COME INTO MY NEIGHBORHOOD.

FOR INSTANCE, INDEPENDENCE HEIGHTS.

THEY HAVE OVER 500 APARTMENTS THAT WILL BE FINISHED BY MARCH OF NEXT YEAR.

THERE IS NO WAY TO REACH OUT TO THEM BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE ANY CONTACT INFORMATION.

BUT THAT'S GOING TO BE A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF GROWTH IN JUST THAT PARTICULAR AREA.

AND THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER AREAS THAT'S GROWING BECAUSE OF GENTRIFICATION THAT THEY NEED TO COME ON DOWN TO OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AND SEE HOW IT'S GROWING RATHER THAN BASED ON OUR DATA AND OUR FACTS THAT WE HAVE NOW.

I'VE SAID IT REPEATEDLY.

NOBODY KNOWS OUR LANDSCAPE LIKE WE DO NOBODY.

AND IT WOULD BE GOOD TO WORK WITH US AS WELL.

AND I ALWAYS SAY I DON'T WANT TO BE A PART OF THE PROBLEM.

I WANT TO BE PART OF THE SOLUTION.

SO IF IT'S ANYTHING THAT I CAN DO SPECIFICALLY OR WHOMEVER ELSE IS VOLUNTEERING TO HELP EXCUSE ME, IDENTIFY THOSE AREAS OF OPPORTUNITY FOR PRE-K AND KINDER.

I HOPE IT'S REALLY FUN.

SINCE WE DIDN'T COME TO THE PARTY, I HOPE IT'S SOMETHING THAT'S REALLY ATTRACTIVE AND SO THAT PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITIES WILL COME OUT AND BE ENCOURAGED TO COME AND WANT TO KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON, ON THAT REGISTRATION, THAT ROLLING REGISTRATION BUS, SO THAT THEY CAN GET THEIR CHILDREN SIGNED UP.

TRUSTEE DEIGAARD.

SORRY. OKAY, SO WE SPENT 21 MINUTES HEARING A PRESENTATION, 22 MINUTES ON OUR FIRST ROUND OF Q&A.

AND WE ARE 7 MINUTES INTO ROUND TWO AND WE'RE PLANNING TO DO THIS EVERY SINGLE MONTH.

[SPEAKERS TO AGENDA ITEMS]

MADAM CHAIR, MR. SUPERINTENDENT, I WOULD LIKE TO RESPECTFULLY SUGGEST THAT THE TWO OF YOU VISIT ABOUT HOW TO MAKE THIS MORE TIME EFFICIENT, MAYBE MORE ONE USING THE ONE ON ONE CONVERSATIONS, MR. SUPERINTENDENT, EVERY MONTH TO HEAR WHAT THE QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS ARE FROM THE BOARD, TO THEN INCORPORATE THAT INTO THESE PRESENTATIONS, FOR US TO BE ABLE TO SHARE OUR THOUGHTS IN ADVANCE TO TRY AND STREAMLINE THIS A BIT.

IT'S INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT.

THERE ARE A LOT OF BIG DECISIONS COMING UP.

THIS IS CRITICAL FOR US TO UNDERSTAND, BUT I'M LOOKING AHEAD TO LIKE WE HAVEN'T EVEN STARTED ON OUR VOTING ITEMS TONIGHT AND IT'S AFTER 8:00.

SO I'M JUST RESPECTFULLY ASKING THAT YOU COORDINATE TOGETHER AND ALSO GET THE INPUT.

HOW CAN WE STREAMLINE THIS SO WE'RE NOT SPENDING AN HOUR EVERY SINGLE MONTH REHASHING BECAUSE I KNOW AS A MONTHS GO ON, ALL OF US, MYSELF INCLUDED, PROBABLY ARE GOING TO SAY THE SAME THINGS OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND AGAIN.

AND IT'S JUST GOING TO BECOME BATTLES OVER THIS, THAT AND THE OTHER THING.

AND I THINK THERE IS A BETTER WAY TO APPROACH THIS AND MY TWO CENTS.

TRUSTEE HERNANDEZ. THANK YOU.

I JUST WANT TO REITERATE TRUSTEE WADE'S COMMENTS ABOUT PRE-K PROGRAMS AND MAKING SURE THAT WE'RE NOT JUST OPENING PROGRAMS, BUT THAT WE ARE RECRUITING PARENTS THAT MAY NOT HAVE CHOSEN HISD BEFORE TO CHOOSE HISD.

WE KNOW THAT THE CITY OF HOUSTON IS OPENING FOR MONTESSORI PROGRAMS IN HOUSTON THIS NEXT YEAR.

TWO OF THEM ARE ON THE EAST SIDE, ONE IN DENVER HARBOR AND ONE IN MAGNOLIA PARK.

THERE'S GOING TO BE A WANT FOR MONTESSORI PROGRAMS IN THE ELEMENTARY LEVEL BECAUSE THERE WILL BE STUDENTS WHO ARE MONTESSORI TRAINED.

I HAVEN'T SEEN ANY OF THAT.

I DON'T HAVEN'T SEEN. WE'RE GOING TO DO SOMETHING EXTRA FOR OUR ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS.

AND WE KNOW THAT WE NEED TO DO EXTRA THINGS FOR OUR ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR STUDENTS ARE ABLE TO READ BY THIRD GRADE.

THAT'S WHAT I WANT TO HEAR IN THIS TRANSFORMATION PLAN, BECAUSE IF WE DO NOT GET OUR ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS RIGHT, WE CANNOT HAVE FUNCTIONING HIGH SCHOOLS AND MIDDLE SCHOOLS.

SO I WOULD LOVE TO SEE WHAT IS ACTUALLY GOING TO HAPPEN IN OUR ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS AND OUR PRE-K PROGRAMS SO THAT WE MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE

[00:15:01]

ENROLLMENT, INCREASING ENROLLMENT, AND DON'T JUST KEEP DECREASING.

OKAY, SO THAT'S ALL.

WE DON'T NEED TO VOTE ON THIS.

SO OUR LAST DISCUSSION REPORT ITEM IS J1, RECEIVE AND DISCUSS AUDIT OF THE ANNUAL COMPREHENSIVE FINANCIAL REPORT FOR FISCAL YEAR 2021-2022. AND WHILE OUR AUDITORS ARE COMING TO THE FRONT WHO HAVE BEEN PATIENTLY WAITING.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

TRUSTEES, IF THERE'S ANYTHING THAT YOU WANT TO PUT BACK ON CONSENT, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AFTER THIS PRESENTATION.

SO JUST BE READY TO TELL ME BECAUSE OTHERWISE WE'RE GOING TO BE HERE VERY, VERY LONG TONIGHT.

GOOD EVENING TRUSTEES AND SUPERINTENDENT HOUSE.

THIS WEEK IS GOING THROUGH THEIR ANNUAL AUDIT FOR FINANCIAL ACCOUNTS AND FINANCIAL STATEMENTS.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT WE DO THAT SO THAT WE CAN KNOW THAT OUR FINANCIAL STATEMENTS ARE PRESENTED FAIRLY.

AND OF COURSE, WITH GENERALLY ACCEPTED ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES AND OTHER STANDARDS THAT APPLY.

TONIGHT, I'D LIKE TO INTRODUCE LAURA.

SHE'S WITH THE FIRM OF WEAVER, WHO HAS THE AUDIT FUNCTION FOR OUR ACCOUNTS THIS YEAR, AND SHE'S GOING TO DO A PRESENTATION ON THE RESULTS OF THE AUDIT. I'VE ALREADY BEEN BRIEFED ON THOSE.

AND SO IT'S TIME FOR YOU ALL TO BE SHARED WITH THE SAME INFORMATION.

WITH THAT, I'LL TURN IT OVER TO LAURA.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU.

UM. TENET HOUSE AND THE ENTIRE BOARD.

THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO PERFORM THE AUDIT FOR HISD.

I ALSO WANT TO EXTEND A THANK YOU TO GLEN AND CHERIE AND THE FINANCE GROUP.

THEY'RE EXTREMELY INSTRUMENTAL INTO MAKING SURE THAT WE CAN MEET THE DEADLINE.

AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, AN AUDIT IS A LOT OF WORK, SO WE APPRECIATE ALL THE SUPPORT THAT THEY GIVE US AND MAKING SURE THAT THEY GIVE US INFORMATION TIMELY.

SO WE'RE GOING TO INCLUDE AN OVERVIEW OF THE AUDIT PROCESS, OUR AUDIT RESULTS AND COMMUNICATIONS, THE FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS, SOME UPCOMING CHANGES THE DISTRICT CAN EXPECT, AND THEN ALLOW SOME TIME FOR QUESTIONS.

SO OUR AUDIT PROCESS STARTS WITH INITIAL PLANNING.

WE PERFORM SOME INTERIM WORK DURING JUNE, JULY, REALLY FOCUSED ON INTERNAL CONTROL TESTING, UNDERSTANDING WHAT'S CHANGED AT THE DISTRICT AND LOOKING AT STARTING ON THE SINGLE AUDIT. THEN WE DO OUR YEAR END FIELDWORK IN SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER.

PRESENT TO THE BOARD TODAY, AND THEN WE GET PREPARED FOR THE NEXT GO ROUND.

OUR AUDIT PROCESS. WE PERFORM OUR AUDIT IN ACCORDANCE WITH GENERALLY ACCEPTED AUDITING STANDARDS AND GENERALLY ACCEPTED GOVERNMENT AUDITING STANDARDS AS REQUIRED.

WE ALSO PERFORM A SINGLE AUDIT OVER THE UNIFORM ADMINISTRATIVE REQUIREMENTS AND COST PRINCIPLES AND AUDIT REQUIREMENTS FOR FEDERAL AWARDS.

AND WE ALSO DO THAT FOR THE STATE AWARDS AS WELL UNDER TEXAS UNIFORM GRANT STANDARDS.

AND THEN WE ALSO PERFORM TESTS OF THE DISTRICT'S COMPLIANCE WITH CERTAIN PROVISIONS OF LAWS, REGULATIONS AND CONTRACTS, SPECIFICALLY INCLUDING PUBLIC FUNDS INVESTMENT ACT, AND ANY STATE COMPLIANCE REQUIREMENTS.

WE DO PERFORM UNDER A RISK BASED APPROACH.

WE FOCUS ON VERY SPECIFIC RISKS WHERE WE IDENTIFY IN THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, INCLUDING SOME FEDERAL AND STATE GRANT REVENUES AND EXPENDITURES, STATE FOUNDATION, SCHOOL PROGRAM, REVENUE AND RELATED ESTIMATES, CONSTRUCTION AND PROGRESS, PAYROLL ACCOUNTS PAYABLE AND DISBURSEMENTS.

WE TEST INTERNAL CONTROLS OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING AND COMPLIANCE, SPECIFICALLY OVER CASH DISBURSEMENTS AND PAYROLL.

AND THEN ON THE COMPLIANCE SIDE, DEPENDING ON THE MAJOR PROGRAMS THAT ARE SELECTED.

SO THESE ARE OUR OVERALL FINANCIAL STATEMENT RESULTS.

THE TYPE OF ISSUE REPORT ISSUED IS UNMODIFIED.

SO THAT'S OUR HIGHEST LEVEL OF ASSURANCE GIVEN THAT THIS WAS CONSIDERED A CLEAN OPINION.

SO THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT? WE HAVE NO MATERIAL WEAKNESSES NOTED.

WE DID HAVE SIGNIFICANT DEFICIENCIES WHICH WE'LL DISCUSS IN A FEW SLIDES AND NO NONCOMPLIANCE MATERIAL TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS NOTED.

FOR OUR AUDIT OVER THE COMPLIANCE FOR FEDERAL AND STATE AWARDS.

WE DID HAVE AN UNMODIFIED OPINION THERE AS WELL.

HISD IS IDENTIFIED AS A HIGH RISK ODDITY, WHICH MEANS WE TEST MORE FEDERAL PROGRAMS THAN ARE REQUIRED, THE MINIMUM REQUIRED.

WE THERE IS NO MATERIAL WEAKNESSES NOTED, NO REPORTED SIGNIFICANT DEFICIENCIES AND NO AUDIT FINDINGS UNDER EITHER THE UNIFORM GUIDANCE OR THE TEXAS UNIFORM GRANT MANAGEMENT STANDARDS. THESE ARE THE FEDERAL AND STATE MAJOR PROGRAMS THAT WE TESTED THIS YEAR.

THIS YEAR WE DID TEST A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF PROGRAMS. THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DOES GIVE US GUIDANCE ON THESE, AND ANYTHING COVID RELATED IS CONSIDERED AUTOMATICALLY HIGH RISK.

AND WE TEST THAT. SO YOU'LL SEE THAT WE TESTED THE EMERGENCY CONNECTIVITY GRANT AND THE ESSER PROGRAMS. WE ALSO TESTED CHILD NUTRITION CLUSTER, THE ENGLISH ACQUISITION, ENGLISH LANGUAGE ACQUISITION GRANTS, SUPPORTING EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTION GRANTS AND STUDENT POOR AND ACADEMIC

[00:20:03]

ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS. WE TESTED TWO MAJOR STATE PROGRAMS TEXAS, TEXAS HOME VISIT PROGRAM, AND ALSO THE SCHOOL LUNCH MATCHING.

THE SIGNIFICANT EFFICIENCY.

FIRST ONE WE NOTED WAS INTERNAL CONTROL OVER THE DISPOSAL OF CAPITAL ASSETS.

MANAGEMENT SELF IDENTIFIED THIS ERROR AND NOTED THAT 144 MILLION OF CAPITAL ASSETS WERE NOT RECORDED AS DISPOSALS RELATED TO CONSTRUCTION COMPLETED WITH THE 2012 BOND PROGRAM. THESE ASSETS WERE DEMOLISHED SOMETIME BETWEEN 2014-2021.

IT WAS RELATED TO ABOUT 20 DIFFERENT SCHOOLS, AND SO THIS ERROR HAS BEEN CORRECTED IN THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, BUT WE DID IDENTIFY THAT AS A SIGNIFICANT DEFICIENCY SINCE IT WAS NOT IDENTIFIED PRIOR TO WHEN THE ACTUAL DEMOLITION OCCURRED.

THE SECOND SIGNIFICANT DEFICIENCY WE NOTED WAS RELATED TO OVER AN INCORRECT ENTRY IN THE HEALTH INSURANCE FUND, WHICH IS ONE OF THE INTERNAL SERVICE FUNDS.

12 MILLION OF REVENUES AND EXPENSES WERE IMPROPERLY RECORDED.

THE PROPER RECORDING OF THIS FENCE DID HAPPEN IN THE ESSER FUND.

PRIOR YOUR FINDING? WE HAD A PRIOR YEAR FINDING OVER IN-KIND REVENUES AND EXPENDITURES.

WE DID NOT KNOW THAT THERE WAS ANY ISSUES WITH THAT THIS YEAR.

SO THE FINDING WAS COMPLETED AND THERE'S NO FURTHER NO FURTHER ISSUES.

SIGNIFICANT RISKS AS PART OF THE AUDITING STANDARDS THERE.

THE AUDIT STANDARDS REQUIRE US PRESUMPTIVELY TO ASSUME THAT THERE ARE CERTAIN RISKS.

THE MAIN RISK THAT THEY REQUIRE US TO ASSESS REGARDING AN ENTITY IS MANAGEMENT OVERRIDE OF CONTROLS AND IMPROPER REVENUE RECOGNITION.

WE THEN EVALUATE THAT AND DETERMINE IF THERE'S ANY OTHER RISK.

SO THESE ARE HOW WE ADDRESS OUR AUDIT PROCEDURES.

HOWEVER, THERE IS NO ISSUES NOTED WITH ANY OF THESE ITEMS THROUGH OUR ACTUAL AUDIT TESTING.

NEW ACCOUNTING STANDARDS.

THE DISTRICT DID IT UP. GASB STATEMENT NUMBER 87 LEASES THIS YEAR, AND THIS WAS A SINGLE MODEL FOR LEASE ACCOUNTING, WHICH WE'RE PUTTING ALL OF THE RIGHT TO USE ASSETS AND THE LEASE LIABILITY IN THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS INSTEAD OF JUST INCLUDING IT IN A NOTE DISCLOSURE.

IT RESULTED IN $4 MILLION OF RIGHT TO USE ASSETS AND LEASE LIABILITIES RECORDED AS OF JULY 1ST, 2021.

MANAGEMENT'S ESTIMATES.

WE LOOK AT KEY MANAGEMENT'S ESTIMATES WHERE THERE MIGHT BE THE ABILITY TO INFLUENCE THOSE ESTIMATES.

SO WE LOOK AT THE ALLOWANCE FOR UNCOLLECTIBLE RECEIVABLES, THE FOUNDATION SCHOOL PROGRAM REVENUE, AND THEN ESTIMATES OBTAINED FROM SOME OF OUR THIRD PARTY ACTUARIES THE INCURRED BUT NOT REPORTED CLAIMS FOR OUR HEALTH CARE AND WORKERS COMP AND THEN YOUR NET PENSION AND NET OPEB LIABILITIES.

CERTAIN FINANCIAL STATEMENT DISCLOSURES INVOLVE JUDGMENT OR CONSIDERED SIGNIFICANT.

WE LOOKED SPECIFICALLY AT THE CAPITAL ASSET RESTATEMENT AND NOTE SIX THE EMPLOYEE RETIREMENT PLAN AND NOTE 11 AND THEN ANY COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES NOTED IN NOTE 12.

OUR OTHER ITEMS WERE REQUIRED TO COMMUNICATE.

THERE WAS NO UNCORRECTED MISSTATEMENTS, NO MATERIAL ERRORS, IRREGULARITIES OR LEGAL ACTS.

NO TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO FOR THE DISTRICT WHICH THE YEAR WHICH THERE IS A LACK OF AUTHORITATIVE GUIDANCE.

NO DIFFICULTIES OR DISAGREEMENTS AROSE WITH MANAGEMENT.

NO INDEPENDENCE ISSUES AND NO CONSULTATIONS OR REQUEST FOR A SECOND OPINION FROM ANOTHER ACCOUNTANT.

NOW WE'LL COVER SOME OF THE FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS.

THIS IS JUST A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF THE REVENUES ON THE GOVERNMENTAL FUNDS OVER THE LAST FIVE YEARS.

AS YOU CAN SEE, LOCAL AND INTERMEDIATE SOURCES, PRIMARILY DRIVEN BY BY PROPERTY TAXES, CONTINUE TO INCREASE.

STATE PROGRAM REVENUES HAVE BEEN A LITTLE ON THE DECREASING SIDE OVER THE LAST FIVE YEARS, AND FEDERAL PROGRAM REVENUES REALLY DRIVEN BY THE COVID FUNDING HAVE INCREASED SIGNIFICANTLY. IN THIS CURRENT YEAR, 2022.

AND THAT'S JUST A PIE CHART THAT KIND OF SHOWS YOU HOW THE EXPENDITURES ARE BEING COVERED BASED ON THE REVENUES.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 2022 AND 2021.

AND HERE'S THE PIE CHARTS FOR THE EXPENDITURES AS WELL.

AND SO OBVIOUSLY, THE TWO LARGEST, THE LARGEST AREA EACH YEAR IS INSTRUCTION CURRICULUM AND MEDIA SERVICES, WHICH WE WOULD EXPECT FOR A SCHOOL DISTRICT FOLLOWED BY STUDENT SUPPORT. AND THEN WE ALSO HAVE A LARGE COMPONENT RELATED TO THE DEBT PAYMENTS.

AND AGAIN, HERE'S YOUR FIVE YEAR TRENDS GENERALLY STAYING PRETTY CONSISTENT, YOU DO TEND TO SEE LITTLE FLUCTUATIONS IN FACILITIES, ACQUISITION AND CONSTRUCTION DEPENDING ON WHAT PROJECTS THE DISTRICT CURRENTLY HAS GOING ON.

THIS IS JUST THE VERSION OF THE REVENUES AND EXPENDITURES TO THE ADOPTED, AMENDED AND ACTUAL BUDGET.

SO YOU'LL NOTE THAT THE REVENUES CAME IN HIGHER THAN THE FINAL BUDGET AND THEN THE EXPENDITURES CAME IN LOWER THAN THE FINAL BUDGET.

AND THIS IS WHAT THE GENERAL FUND BALANCE HAS BEEN DOING FOR THE PAST FIVE YEARS.

YOU NOTICE THERE WAS AN INCREASE THIS YEAR IN UNASSIGNED FINE BALANCE AND THEN ALSO IN THE TOTAL FUND BALANCE.

SO THAT HAS BEEN CONTINUING TO INCREASE.

UPCOMING CHANGES.

THERE IS A NEW GASB STANDARD SUBSCRIPTION BASED INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ARRANGEMENTS.

THIS STANDARD DESCRIBES WHAT WE CONSIDER THIS.

THIS IS GENERALLY WHAT WE CONSIDER SOFTWARE AGREEMENTS, AND THIS WILL BE EFFECTIVE FOR NEXT YEAR FOR THE FOR THE DISTRICT'S FINANCIAL STATEMENTS.

[00:25:05]

AND WE DO ANTICIPATE THIS WILL HAVE A PRETTY LARGE IMPACT.

IT'LL BE VERY SIMILAR TO THE LEASE STANDARD WHERE THERE'LL BE AN ASSET AND A LIABILITY RECORDED.

SO NO IMPACT ON NET POSITION, BUT A BUT A GROSS UP OF ESSENTIALLY THE STATEMENT OF NET POSITION.

GADSBY STATEMENT 101 COMPENSATED ABSENCES.

THIS IS REALLY JUST MAKING A UNIFIED MODEL FOR HOW GOVERNMENTS ARE REPORTING THIS.

AND THIS IS EFFECTIVE FOR PERIODS BEGINNING AFTER 12/15/2023.

AND AGAIN, WE THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE THE DISTRICT.

AND I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AT THIS TIME.

TRUSTEES. ANY QUESTIONS? I'LL START SINCE I SEE NO ONE IN THE QUEUE.

IF YOU CAN GO BACK TO SLIDE 12.

PLEASE. SO THESE ARE THE SIGNIFICANT DEFICIENCIES? YES. SUPERINTENDENT HOUSE, HOW WILL WE KNOW WHEN AND HOW THESE HAVE BEEN CORRECTED? I'M ASSUMING YOU WERE JUST GETTING THIS INFORMATION AS WE ARE.

SO JUST CURIOUS WHAT THE PLAN IS OR WHAT YOU ANTICIPATE THE PLAN TO BE.

SO THE PLAN IS REALLY CONSISTENT COMMUNICATION, OF COURSE, WITH THE THE AUDIT OFFICE.

AND THEN, OF COURSE, WHEREVER THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT FINDINGS THAT NEED TO BE ADDRESSED, WE WORK WITH THOSE PARTICULAR DEPARTMENT HEADS TO ENSURE THAT WE ADDRESS THEM.

SO, GLEN, ANY ANY ADDITIONAL INSIGHTS YOU WANT TO SHARE THERE? NO, ESPECIALLY THIS ONE.

IT WAS AN ENTRY THAT JUST SHOULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED.

THERE ARE SOME ADDITIONAL TRAINING WE'RE GOING TO BE DOING FOR SOME THE FIRST HALF COMING INTO THE DISTRICT TO ENSURE THAT THE POLICIES ARE FOLLOWED.

THIS WASN'T A ISSUE OF NOT ISSUE OF NOT HAVING A POLICY.

IT WAS JUST THEY WERE NOT FOLLOWED.

THANK YOU FOR THAT INSIGHT.

AND CHIEF BLACKWELL, IS THIS AUDIT ALSO PART OF THE DASHBOARD IN TERMS OF LIKE THE FINDINGS AND ALL THAT? OKAY. CAN WE ADD IT? IS THAT POSSIBLE? OK. THANK YOU.

I APPRECIATE IT. I HAVE A COUPLE MORE QUESTIONS, BUT I CAN'T FIND THEM, SO. TRUSTEE GUIDRY.

LET ME JUST SAY THAT I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS.

BUT FOR THE SAKE OF TIME, I'M GOING TO SUBMIT MY QUESTIONS AS A BOARD REFERRAL.

BUT I AM GOING TO ALSO ASK THAT LIKE EVERY OTHER REPORT, THE CHAIR OF THE AUDIT COMMITTEE WOULD MAKE SURE THAT WE GET THIS REPORT, THESE REPORTS TIMELY, LIKE WE'RE JUST GETTING THIS.

WELL, BUT YOU'RE THE CHAIR OF THE AUDIT COMMITTEE AND IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN SEEN TO IT THAT WE IF THERE WAS GOING TO BE A REPORT TONIGHT, THAT THE REPORT SHOULD HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED TO US MORE TIMELY.

SO WE WOULD HAVE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW IT.

NO DISRESPECT TO YOU, REALLY NONE.

BUT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT.

WE SHOULD HAVE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO OVERVIEW IT BEFORE IT CAME TO US.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. TRUSTEE DEIGAARD.

SO THIS WAS NOT THIS DID NOT COME FROM THE AUDIT COMMITTEE.

THIS WAS ADDED TO THE AGENDA BY THE ADMINISTRATION.

NONE OF THIS WAS DISCUSSED WITH ME OR PROVIDED TO ME OR THE COMMITTEE PRIOR TO TONIGHT.

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE DO.

THIS IS PART OF AN ANNUAL PROCESS.

IT GOES TO THE FULL BOARD FIRST.

IT DOESN'T GO TO THE AUDIT COMMITTEE FIRST.

IT GOES TO THE FULL BOARD FIRST.

THE QUESTION THAT I HAVE, ARE YOU DISAGREEING WITH THAT? CAN CAN LEGAL IS IT POSSIBLE IN FUTURE YEARS FOR THIS TO GO TO THE AUDIT COMMITTEE FIRST? IF THE TIMING IS CORRECT.

I BELIEVE YOU'RE THE ISSUE IS YOU'RE RUNNING UP AGAINST A DEADLINE.

WE DO THIS IN NOVEMBER OF EVERY YEAR, SO YOU JUST NEED TO TIME YOUR AUDIT COMMITTEE MEETINGS SO THAT SO YOU HAVE ONE OR THIS REPORT READY WHERE THIS REPORT IS ACTUALLY READY FOR THAT AUDIT COMMITTEE MEETING? I DON'T THINK THIS REPORT WAS READY IN SEPTEMBER WHEN YOU HAD YOUR SEPTEMBER AUDIT COMMITTEE MEETING.

SO CAN THE AUDIT CHAIR, WHOEVER IT IS NEXT YEAR, BE INFORMED WHEN THIS IS READY SO THEY CAN CALL AN AUDIT COMMITTEE MEETING? I THINK THAT WOULD BE A QUESTION TO YOUR CHIEF AUDIT EXECUTIVE.

OKAY. CAN WE BE? WELL, ANYWAY, SO MY QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS AUDIT ARE.

TO THE ADMINISTRATION.

WERE ANY OF THESE DEFICIENCIES THAT WERE FOUND BY WEAVER, WERE THEY PART OF PREVIOUS AUDITS THAT WERE DONE EXECUTED BY OUR DISTRICT AUDIT DEPARTMENT, WHERE THEY FOUND DEFICIENCIES THAT

[00:30:01]

HADN'T BEEN ADDRESSED BEFORE THIS AUDIT? CHIEF REED. NO THESE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING.

INTERNAL AUDIT. THE FIRST ONE WAS ONE THAT WE ACTUALLY SELF IDENTIFIED.

SO WE TOLD WEAVER THAT WE FOUND THIS THAT DEFICIENCY.

THIS ONE WAS FOUND BY WEAVER AND IT WAS A ENTRY THAT SOMEONE MADE THAT THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE MADE.

I MEAN, JUST BE HONEST.

SO THAT THAT I DON'T EXPECT THAT TO CONTINUE IN THE FUTURE.

OKAY. AND COULD SOMEONE EXPLAIN FOR THE SAKE OF THE FULL BOARD AND FOR THE PUBLIC HOW THIS DIFFERS FROM THE REST OF THE AUDIT PLAN? SO THIS IS THE REQUIRED ANNUAL EXTERNAL AUDIT.

SO STATE LAW REQUIRES THAT SCHOOL DISTRICTS HAVE AN ANNUAL EXTERNAL AUDIT.

AND WHEN YOU ALL APPROVE THIS, THIS AUDIT, THEN WE SUBMIT THAT TO TEA WE HAVE TO DO SO 150 DAYS AFTER THE END OF OUR OF OUR FISCAL YEAR. SO THIS IS A REQUIREMENT AND A SUBMISSION THAT WE PROVIDE TO TEA EVERY YEAR.

THANK YOU. TRUSTEE BLUEFORD-DANIELS.

I'M ACTUALLY AS I LISTEN TO THIS, I GO BACK TO PAGE 12 THAT PRESIDENT CRUZ IDED THAT $12 MILLION.

AND, YOU KNOW, I KNOW WE HAD ONE INSTANCE BEFORE WE FOUND SOME SOME MONEY FROM A&M, FOUND SOME MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

SO THIS 2022, WHAT WAS THE PERIOD FOR THIS $12 MILLION? WAS IT FOR WAS IT JUST FOUND THIS YEAR OR WAS IT OVER A TWO, THREE, FOUR YEAR PERIOD THAT WE DIDN'T WE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE FOUND THIS. THIS IS NOT MONEY.

THIS WAS AN ERROR, AN ENTRY THAT SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN DONE.

IT DID NOT IMPACT ANY CASH, DIDN'T IMPACT ANY.

IF WE HADN'T FOUND IT, WE WOULD HAVE HAD A STATEMENT THAT WAS INCORRECT ON REVENUE AND EXPENDITURES.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WANT TO ADD ANYTHING TO THAT, LAURA, BUT YEAH, IT WAS PURELY IT WAS A ONE TIME ENTRY.

IT WAS ONLY IN 2022 AND LIKE YOU SAID, THE ORIGINAL REVENUE AND EXPENDITURES ARE PROPERLY RECORDED IN THE ESSER FUND.

IT JUST SIMPLY OVERSTATED IT.

IT'S ONE OF THOSE ENTRIES WHERE YOU ACTUALLY RECORD A REVENUE AND EXPENDITURE AT THE SAME TIME, AND UNFORTUNATELY IT WAS BOOKED INCORRECTLY BY OK.

AND I THINK I APPRECIATE THAT TRANSPARENCY BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, WE ALL MAKE ERRORS BECAUSE IT WAS AN ENTRY, APPARENTLY A MANUAL ENTRY, BUT IT'S A GOOD THING THAT WE FOUND IT.

AND SO NOW WE KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH IT.

SHOW ME THE MONEY, PROGRAMS. THANK YOU. TRUSTEE WADE.

THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION.

AND YOU WERE SO EFFICIENT IN THAT WONDERFUL IN THAT PRESENTATION.

SO I APPRECIATE THAT VERY MUCH.

A QUICK QUESTION ON PAGE 11.

SO THE MANAGEMENT IDENTIFIED 1.1 144 MILLION IN CAPITAL ASSETS NOT PROPERLY RECORDED AS DISPOSALS RELATED TO CONSTRUCTION FROM THE 2012 BOND PROGRAM.

SO I GUESS MY CONCERN ABOUT THIS IS THAT WE AS WE LOOK INTO THIS POTENTIAL BOND.

PLAN GOING FORWARD.

AND. ADDRESSING THIS ISSUE.

WITH THAT COMING.

YES. AND I THINK THAT'S ACTUALLY HOW IT CAME TO LIGHT.

YES. SO AS THEY WERE WORKING ON THIS NEW BOND PROGRAM, IT CAME TO LIGHT AND THAT'S HOW THE DISTRICT DISCOVERED IT.

AND THEN THEY'VE NOW IMPLEMENTED SOME CONTROLS TO MAKE SURE IT'S NOT GOING TO MAKE IT A HARDER SELL.

IF WE ONE DIDN'T GET BUILDINGS FINISHED, TWO, WE RAN OUT OF MONEY BECAUSE IT TOOK SO LONG.

AND THEN THREE, WE HAVE THESE FINDINGS.

SO I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE WE'RE THANK YOU FOR FINDING IT SO WE KNOW.

THANK YOU. MM HMM.

MS.. LAMBERT, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU FOR PATIENTLY WAITING FOR SO MANY HOURS.

APPRECIATE IT. WE ARE NOW READY TO CONSIDER THE SUPERINTENDENT'S AGENDA ITEMS FOR THE RECORD.

LET IT BE REFLECTED THAT ITEM B TWO WAS WITHDRAWN.

A NEW A1 HAS BEEN ADDED ALONG WITH J TWO AND ITS ATTACHMENT AND ITEMS TO AN ATTACHMENT TWO ITEMS I1, I2 AND I3 HAVE BEEN REVISED. BOARD POLICY REQUIRES TRUSTEES TO EXCUSE THEMSELVES AND ABSTAIN FROM ALL DISCUSSION AND VOTES PERTAINING TO CONTRACTS THAT MIGHT INVOLVED A CONFLICT OF INTEREST AS DEFINED IN BOARD POLICY BBFA LOCAL.

A CONFLICT OF INTEREST IS ANY CIRCUMSTANCE THAT COULD CAST DOUBT ON A TRUSTEE'S ABILITY TO ACT WITH TOTAL OBJECTIVITY WITH REGARD TO THE DISTRICT'S INTERESTS.

WE WILL NOW CONSIDER ITEMS HELD FOR ABSTENTION AND OR DISCUSSION.

EACH MONTH, ALL ACTION ITEMS BEGIN ON THE CONSENT AGENDA.

IF A TRUSTEE WOULD LIKE AN ITEM HELD FROM CONSENT, THEY NEED TO NOTIFY SYLVIA TREND BY 8 A.M.

[00:35:04]

ON THE MONDAY PRIOR TO THE VOTING MEETING.

TRUSTEES, AS A REMINDER, EVERYONE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY PRIOR TO THIS MEETING TO SUBMIT ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS AFTER AGENDA REVIEW TO THE ADMINISTRATION.

THE UPDATED Q&A DOCUMENT WAS SENT TO ALL TRUSTEES VIA EMAIL IS IN YOUR SHAREPOINT UNDER NOVEMBER BOARD MEETING DOCUMENTS AND HAS BEEN POSTED ON THE DISTRICT WEBSITE.

FOR EACH ITEM OF DISCUSSION, WE WILL DO ONE ROUND OF ONE MINUTE PER TRUSTEE.

IF AN ADDITIONAL ROUND IS DESIRED, THAT CAN BE DONE WITH A MOTION SECOND AND BOARD VOTE.

SO I GOT SOME NOTES ON THINGS TO PUT BACK ON CONSENT, BUT SOME OF THEM WERE NOT OFF OF CONSENT AND SOME OF THEM MORE THAN ONE OF YOU PULLED.

SO LET ME JUST READ THEM OUT LOUD.

SO A1 WAS NOT A VOTING ITEM.

B1A OH, THAT'S THE QUARTERLY TRACKER.

WAIT, NO, THAT ONE WAS FINE. SO F1, I'M GOING TO PUT BACK ON CONSENT.

ALL RIGHT. AND THEN K4.

SO LEAVE THAT ONE OFF.

OKAY. K4, ANY OBJECTIONS TO PUTTING IT BACK ON CONSENT? AND THEN I ITEM 18 0409.

ANY OBJECTIONS, THAT'S THE WATER SOFTENER THINGY I THINK.

DOES ANYONE OBJECT TO 18 0409 GOING BACK ON? OH, I CAN'T. IT'S.

DOES ANYBODY SEE WHAT PAGE OF THE SCRIPT IT'S ON? I THINK MY EYES ARE JUST GETTING CROSSED AT THIS POINT.

WHAT PAGE OF THE SCRIPT? PAGE 12. THANK YOU, TRUSTEE ALLEN.

OKAY, SO WE'LL LEAVE THAT ONE.

WE'LL PUT THAT ONE BACK ON CONSENT.

SO WE'LL BE RETURNING F1 F6 PROJECT 180409. YES, SHE SAID, THAT'S FINE.

SO DO WE NEED TO TAKE A VOTE FOR THAT, TO PUT THOSE BACK ON CONSENT? THAT.

YOU KNOW, LIKE IT'S NOT IN THE SCRIPT.

OH, SORRY. IT'S BECAUSE IT'S WITH THE FULL PARAGRAPH.

I WAS LOOKING DIFFERENTLY. THANK YOU.

[A-2 Acceptance Of Board Monitoring Update: Presentation Of Goal 3 Progress Measure 3.1 (Part 1 of 2)]

ALL RIGHT. PLEASE VOTE.

[00:40:28]

TRUSTEE WADE.

WE HAVE 8 FOR, 0 ABSTENTIONS.

ZERO AGAINST, ZERO ABSTENTIONS.

MOTION PASSES.

OKAY, SO LET ME.

OUR FIRST ITEM HELD FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA IS A THREE CONSIDERATION AND APPROVAL OF THE FEDERAL LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES FOR THE 118TH CONGRESS AND STATE LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES FOR THE 88TH TEXAS LEGISLATIVE SESSION.

THIS ITEM IS BEING HELD AT THE REQUEST OF TRUSTEE BLUEFORD-DANIELS AND GUIDRY, AND I FORGOT TO READ FOR EACH ITEM OF DISCUSSION.

WE'LL DO ONE ROUND OF ONE MINUTE PER TRUSTEE.

TRUSTEE, WHO HAS A QUESTION? MADAM PRESIDENT, I THINK THAT'S ONE OF THOSE ONES WE WANTED TO RETURN TO CONSENT.

SO IF WE COULD MAKE A NOTE OF THAT AND WE CAN PUT THAT BACK ON AS WELL, BECAUSE WE HAD A LOT OF DISCUSSION ABOUT IT LAST WEEK.

WE SHOULD VOTE ON IT. RIGHT. THE REVIEW OF THE.

SO DO WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND FOR A3? SO MOVE, HERNANDEZ.

SECOND.

HAVE A MOTION BY TRUSTEE HERNANDEZ AND A SECOND BY TRUSTEE BLUEFORD-DANIELS PLEASE VOTE.

THIS IS ITEM A THREE LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES.

EIGHT FOR, ZERO AGAINST, ZERO ABSTENTIONS.

OUR NEXT ITEM IS E1, APPROVAL OF NEW MAGNET PROGRAMS AT CRISPUS ATTUCKS MIDDLE SCHOOL.

RICHARD FONVILLE MIDDLE SCHOOL, PATRICK HENRY MIDDLE SCHOOL, JOHN MCREYNOLDS MIDDLE SCHOOL, HOUSTON MATH SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY CENTER, JAMES MADISON HIGH SCHOOL AND EVAN WORTHING HIGH SCHOOL AND CHANGE A MAGNET THEME AT GEORGE SCARBOROUGH HIGH SCHOOL.

THIS ITEM IS BEING HELD AT THE REQUEST OF TRUSTEE SANTOS, HERNANDEZ DEIGAARD, BAKER AND GUIDRY.

MAY I HAVE A MOTION? SO MOVE.

THE MOTION BY TRUSTEE BLUEFORD-DANIELS AND A SECOND BY TRUSTEE HERNANDEZ.

COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? TRUSTEE GUIDRY. SO LET ME JUST SAY FIRST OF ALL, THAT I AM TOTALLY IN FAVOR OF THESE MAGNETS.

BUT THE ISSUE I HAVE I SUBMITTED MY QUESTION IN FOR A QUESTION, AND I'M ASKING ABOUT THE FUNDING.

I AM STILL CONCERNED BECAUSE I INITIALLY ASK, ARE YOU SURE THAT THE CTE FUNDING WOULD SUBSTANTIATE AND HOLD UP, ESPECIALLY IN OUR HIGH SCHOOLS, WHO ARE NOT GETTING ADDITIONAL MONEY PER STUDENT AND TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY WOULD IN FACT BE ABLE TO SUBSTANTIATE THIS MAGNET? AND YOU CAME BACK AND YOU SAID THEY'RE SEPARATE.

BUT THEN I FOLLOWED UP WITH ANOTHER QUESTION, AND YOU CAME BACK AND SAID THAT WHERE IS IT? AND I DON'T WANT TO RUN OUT OF TIME.

THAT THE CTE PROGRAMS THERE BUILT UP, IF YOU WILL, THIS PROGRAM GROWS FROM AND IS UPHELD BY THE CTE PROGRAM.

THEY DON'T HAVE THE MONEY FOR IT.

WORTHING DOESN'T HAVE THE MONEY.

THEY'RE BARELY MAINTAINING THEIR CTE.

AND NOW YOU'RE SAYING THE CTE FUNDS ARE ALSO GOING TO BE USED TO TO TO SUBSTANTIATE OR TO MANAGE THIS MAGNET, AND THEY DON'T HAVE THE FUNDING, IT WILL FAIL.

SO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT PLACING AND FOR THE MIDDLE SCHOOLS AND THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, THE FEW THAT THERE WERE LISTED, THEY'RE FINE THEY'RE GETTING PER STUDENT MONEY, THEY'RE GETTING A COORDINATOR, THEY'RE GETTING A TEACHER.

BUT IN THE HIGH SCHOOLS, YOU'RE SAYING THAT THEY HAVE TO UTILIZE WHAT THEY HAVE FOR CTE.

IT'S NOT GOING TO WORK.

TRUSTEE. DR. LOVE.

SORRY. WAS IT? AGAIN.

GOOD EVENING, BOARD TRUSTEE. I DO HEAR WHAT YOU'RE WHAT YOU'RE ASKING AND SAYING.

NOW, WE DIDN'T MY DIVISION DIDN'T SPECIFICALLY RESPOND TO THAT QUESTION, BUT I DO HAVE SOME KIND OF BACKGROUND IN CTE WITH THAT.

[00:45:04]

PRIOR TO COVID, THANK, BELIEVE BACK IN 2018, THE DISTRICT SHIFTED THE FUNDING MODEL OF SCHOOL CHOICE PROGRAMS. THE DECISION WAS MADE THAT ANY CAREER THEMED PROGRAM AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL THERE WOULD NOT BE DIRECT FUNDING BASED ON A PER PUPIL ALLOCATION.

IT WAS JUST REALLY BASED ON A REALLY THE MAINTENANCE COORDINATOR AND SOME ADDITIONAL FUNDS FROM MARKETING.

AND THAT WAS THAT WAS DERIVED FROM THE FUNDING BEING GENERATED FROM CTE.

SO ONE ASPECT OF THIS MOTION HERE IS TO LOOK AT ONE, PROVIDING A CAMPUS, A COORDINATOR TO MARKET THESE PROGRAMS ACROSS THE CITY FOR STUDENTS WHO ARE INTERESTED IN POTENTIALLY LOOKING AT A PROGRAM SPECIFIC OPTION FOR THEMSELVES.

BUT ALSO ON TOP OF THAT AS THEY MARKET IT, THE HOPE IS TO INCREASE ENROLLMENT, WHICH THEN WILL DERIVE AN ADDITIONAL FUNDING BASED ON THE SEAT ALLOCATION WOULD GET FROM THE STATE.

SO JUST GIVING YOU THE BACKGROUND AND KIND OF HOW THE FUNDING STRUCTURE NOW THAT IS SOMETHING WE'LL BE LOOKING AT THROUGH THE STRATEGIC PLAN IS ALL COMPONENTS OF FUNDING IN OUR DISTRICT AND ONE IS GOING TO BE SCHOOL CHOICE.

AND IF THAT MODEL SHOULD BE SUSTAINED OR IF WE SHOULD CHANGE THAT MODEL OF FUNDING OUR SCHOOLS WITH SCHOOL CHOICE PROGRAMS. SO I'M GOING TO KEEP MY MOUTH CLOSED.

I'M GOING TO COME AROUND ON ON ROUND TWO.

TRUSTEE HERNANDEZ.

OH, YEAH, THANK YOU.

I WANT TO SAY THAT I ALSO SUPPORT MAGNETS IN MIDDLE SCHOOLS AND HIGH SCHOOLS.

HOWEVER, I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THE MAGNETS IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS.

I'VE SAID THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

LAST WEEK I ASKED FOR THE 2019 PLAN FOR MAGNETS AND I RECEIVED IT TODAY WHILE I WAS ALREADY IN A BOARD MEETING.

I ALSO ASKED FOR THE PLAN FOR THE REST OF THE THREE OR FOUR YEARS OF MAGNETS, AND I HAVE NOT RECEIVED THAT.

I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THIS ITEM AND I THINK THAT WE NEED TO POSTPONE IT ONE MONTH UNTIL WE GET SOME MORE INFORMATION, BECAUSE I DON'T FEEL LIKE I HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION IN ORDER TO VOTE FOR THIS FOR THIS ITEM.

SO I WILL MAKE A MOTION TO POSTPONE THIS ITEM TO THE NEXT BOARD MEETING.

ARE YOU MAKING THE MOTION OR YOUR.

ARE YOU MAKING THE MOTION? YES. OKAY.

IS THERE A SECOND? SECOND. WE HAVE A MOTION BY TRUSTEE HERNANDEZ.

AND ON THIS IN A SECOND, BY TRUSTEE BAKER.

YOU CAN HAVE A DISCUSSION ON, BUT IT HAS TO BE ABOUT THE POSTPONEMENT ITSELF.

IT CAN'T BE ABOUT THE UNDERLYING ITEM.

SO THE LENGTH OF THE POSTPONEMENT.

ANY DISCUSSION ON JUST THE POSTPONEMENT? OR WE CAN JUST VOTE ON IT.

YOU'RE JUST NOT ALLOWED.

AND OK.

QUICK, QUICK QUESTION, IF THIS IS POSTPONED FOR ONE MONTH.

WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS TO THE PROGRAM? DR. LOVE. TRUSTEE WADE.

WELL, KEEP IN MIND, OUR SCHOOL CHOICE MAINTENANCE FAIR START THIS SATURDAY.

SO WITH THAT, WE WANTED TO ENSURE THAT THIS GOT TO THE BOARD.

SO IF APPROVED, THEY COULD START MARKETING THESE PROGRAMS BEGINNING THIS SATURDAY THROUGH THE MONTH.

OUR PHASE ONE OF OUR APPLICATION FOR SCHOOL CHOICE PROGRAM'S ENROLLMENT BEGINS IN DECEMBER FOR FAMILIES TO APPLY FOR THESE PROGRAMS. OKAY. THANK YOU.

GOOD. AND SO IF WE DON'T POSTPONE, WE COULD STILL LOOK INTO THE ELEMENTARY.

WE CAN LOOK INTO THE THINGS THAT TRUSTEE HERNANDEZ HAS QUESTIONS ABOUT.

CORRECT? AND THE THING I HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT.

SO WE CAN MOVE FORWARD.

I'M SORRY, SUPERINTENDENT HOUSE.

SO WE CAN MOVE FORWARD.

CORRECT. AND STILL LOOK INTO THE QUESTION, THE ISSUES THAT SOME OF THE TRUSTEES HAVE AT THIS TIME? ABSOLUTELY. OF COURSE, THIS IS A MULTI YEAR PROCESS.

WE'RE OF COURSE, LOOKING AT THIS THIS GROUP OF SEVEN AND EXPANDING AND THEN, OF COURSE, ANOTHER SEVEN NEXT YEAR.

THE IDEA WAS TO ENSURE THAT OUR SECONDARY SCHOOLS FOR THE MOST PART HAD.

SO YES, IT'S AN ONGOING OPPORTUNITY TO CONTINUE THE CONVERSATION.

THANK YOU, SIR. YEAH.

TRUSTEE. THE BUTTONS AREN'T WORKING.

OKAY. TRUSTEE DEIGAARD.

GO AHEAD. SO I ASKED A QUESTION LAST WEEK THAT DIDN'T GET ANSWERED.

I WAS TOLD IT WAS ABOUT THE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT, ESPECIALLY STUDENT FEEDBACK ABOUT THE PROGRAMS. AND I'M VERY MUCH STRUGGLING WITH THE FACT THAT WE HAVE BINDERS FULL OF INFORMATION ABOUT OUR CLOSED SESSION LEGAL ITEMS, AND WE GET A COUPLE PAGES ABOUT SOMETHING THAT IS A MAJOR.

YOU KNOW, THIS IS PART OF A BIGGER PICTURE.

TRUSTEE DEIGAARD, WE'RE ON THE MOTION TO POSTPONE.

SO IF YOU HAVE SOME DISCUSSION ABOUT THE LENGTH OF THE.

I'M SHARING WHY I'M SUPPORTIVE OF POSTPONING FOR ONE MONTH BECAUSE THE ADMINISTRATION NEEDS TO BE HAVING BETTER

[00:50:08]

CONVERSATIONS TO GIVE US THE BIGGER PICTURE OF WHAT THIS IS PART OF BEFORE I VOTE ON IT.

AND IT'S MY QUESTION FROM LAST WEEK.

TRUSTEES. IN AN INTEREST OF TIME, JUST BE MINDFUL LIKE WE NEED TO MOVE ON THIS.

SO. HOW MANY OF YOU? OH, I KNOW. I'M CALLING EVERYBODY.

I'M JUST REMINDING.

TRUSTEE HERNANDEZ.

WE'RE GOING TO PICK OUT WHAT I WANT TO CALL FOR THE QUESTION.

I MEAN, THE FACT THAT THE QUESTION WAS POSED.

THE MOTION WAS MADE.

CALL FOR THE QUESTION.

PLEASE.

PLEASE VOTE. THIS IS ON THE POSTPONEMENT, NOT THE ACTUAL ITEM.

[INAUDIBLE] FOR THE POSTPONED.

FOUR FOR, FOUR AGAINST, ZERO ABSTENTIONS.

OKAY. SO NOW WE NEED TO VOTE ON THE ACTUAL.

OKAY, SO WE'RE BACK TO E1.

TRUSTEES, IF YOU'VE ALREADY SPOKEN, REMEMBER, IT'S ONE ROUND OF ONE MINUTE FOR ACTUAL AGENDA ITEMS. SO OK.

GO AHEAD. TRUSTEE BLUEFORD-DANIELS.

I KNOW IT'S ONE ROUND, ONE MINUTE.

DO WE HAVE A MARKETING PROGRAM AS A CTE PROGRAM AT ANY OF OUR CAMPUSES? THAT'S PART OF MY QUESTION. STOP TIME.

DR. LOVE, I'M SORRY.

FOR THAT QUESTION. TRUSTEE BLUEFORD-DANIELS I CAN GET YOUR INFORMATION.

I DON'T KNOW. I KNOW WE HAVE MARKETING ACROSS SOME HIGH SCHOOLS.

I'LL GET YOU SPECIFIC CAMPUSES AND OUR CT DEPARTMENT CAN PROVIDE THAT INFORMATION.

THIS WOULD BE A GOOD OPPORTUNITY.

AND I LIKE TO, WHAT DO YOU CALL IT? THIS YOUNG MAN HAS BEEN WAITING SINCE EARLY PART OF THE EARLY PART OF THE EVENING, AND I'D LIKE TO GIVE UP THE REST OF MY 30 SECONDS TO THIS YOUNG MAN WHO WAS HERE TO SPEAK ON BEHALF OF THE STUDENTS THAT WERE ALL OUT HERE.

OH, HOW ARE YOU DOING? MY NAME IS SAVON MOORE.

I'M A NATIVE HOUSTONIAN.

I GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL AT 16 YEARS OLD.

I SERVED MY COUNTRY AS AN ARMY RANGER, GRADUATE AT HOWARD UNIVERSITY, HAVE AN MBA FROM TEXAS A&M.

TWO OF MY CHILDREN ARE IN THIS MAGNET PROGRAM, THE GIFTED CHILDREN.

I HAVE THE MONEY TO PUT THEM IN BOARDING SCHOOLS, BUT I CHOSE HISD.

I MOVED TO FIFTH WARD WHEN I CAN AFFORD TO LIVE IN THE HEIGHTS, LIVING WITH THIS YOUNG LADY OVER HERE.

BUT I CHOSE TO BE IN MY COMMUNITY THAT IS BLACK AND BROWN.

I'M ALSO A MINISTER AT A CHURCH IN SUNNYSIDE THAT'S RIGHT THERE WITH CRISPUS ATTUCKS.

AND ALL THESE CHILDREN ARE RIGHT HERE, HERE TONIGHT ON BOTH SIDES.

THEY NEED THIS PROGRAM.

IF YOU WANT PARENTS LIKE ME TO COME BACK AND GENTRIFY AND HELP MAKE THIS DISTRICT BETTER, PLEASE CHOOSE THE VOTE ON THIS PROGRAM, BECAUSE I'M NOT GOING TO GIVE MY CHILDREN A SUBPAR EDUCATION BECAUSE YOU WANT TO BICKER.

IT'S ABOUT THE KIDS.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT.

IT'S ALL ABOUT OUR CHILDREN.

I WAS AFFORDED THAT OPPORTUNITY.

I WAS A FOSTER KID AND I WAS ADOPTED AND I WAS ABLE TO GO BEING GIFTED AND TALENTED.

AND NOW I'M ABLE TO EMPLOY HAVE A GOOD LIFE.

LET THAT HAPPEN FOR MY CHILDREN.

ONE OF MY CHILDREN IS I ADOPTED.

LIKE, IF YOU DON'T VOTE ON THIS, I'M LIKE, WHY WOULD I STAY IN HISD? BECAUSE I'M NOT AFFORDING MY CHILDREN THE SAME.

AND THESE PARENTS, WE WORK, WE COULDN'T STAY HERE.

THEY HAD TO GO TO BED AT NIGHT BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, THEY GOT SCHOOL TOMORROW.

SO I'M JUST ADVOCATING FOR FOR THEM.

I'M NEW TO THE COMMUNITY, BACK IN THE COMMUNITY.

BUT PLEASE, LIKE IT'S IMPORTANT.

IT'S NOT ABOUT YOU DISAGREEING WITH EACH OTHER AS ADULTS.

IT'S ABOUT THE CHILDREN.

BECAUSE ONE DAY WE WERE ALL CHILDREN, YOU KNOW? SO WHEN SCHOOL, MY TWO CHILDREN GO TO MATT REYNOLDS, TWO OF MY KIDS.

SO YOU'RE NOT ABOUT TO END.

THEY ONE OF MY DAUGHTERS JUST WON CROSS COUNTRY.

THEY PLAY BASKETBALL. YOU'RE NOT INTO THE ATHLETIC PROGRAM, BUT THE ACADEMICS, THE WHAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT, COLLEGE READINESS.

YOU SHOULD VOTE ON THAT BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT'S IMPORTANT, BECAUSE I WANT MY CHILDREN TO COME BACK TO OUR COMMUNITY ONE DAY THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE KIDS.

AND BEING HISD IS A GREAT.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

BUT THANK YOU FOR THAT INFORMATION.

IT WAS VERY, VERY GOOD.

I DON'T GET FIVE MORE CHANCES NOW.

THEY TAKE AWAY MY FIVE TURNS.

BUT THANK YOU. I WANTED TO ACKNOWLEDGE YOU FOR BEING HERE AND THAT EVERYBODY HERE AT A TIME.

[00:55:02]

I MUST SEE THEY TOOK MY TIME AWAY ALREADY.

BUT THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.

TRUSTEES, PLEASE VOTE.

YEAH, WE ALREADY DID. WE DO ONE ROUND OF ONE MINUTE.

YOU HAVE TO MAKE A MOTION ITEM.

YES, WE DID.

YEAH, WE DID SPEAK ON THE ON THE ON THE MOTION.

OKAY, GO AHEAD. SO I HAVE ZERO HESITATION ABOUT MCREYNOLDS AND BONNEVILLE BECAUSE I KNOW THAT THEY'RE T CLASS SCHOOLS AND THEY WENT THROUGH ROBUST COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT TO HAVE THE PROGRAMS THAT THEY HAVE.

WHAT I HAVE A HESITATION OVER IS ANY CAMPUS WHERE WE'RE JUST WE'RE WE'RE THIS BUILDING WHERE THE NINE OF US IN THIS BUILDING SO FAR AWAY FROM COMMUNITIES ARE ADDING PROGRAMS WITHOUT COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AT THE CAMPUS LEVEL THAT IS ROBUST WITH STUDENTS AND WITH FAMILIES TO KNOW WHAT THEY ACTUALLY WANT ON THAT CAMPUS THAT IS GOING TO BE OF INTEREST TO THEM AND ENGAGING.

THAT'S MY STRUGGLE WITH THIS ITEM.

PLEASE VOTE NOW.

NOW WE'RE ACTUALLY VOTING ON THE ACTUAL ITEM E1.

YEP.

TRUSTEE BAKER E1.

8 FOR, ZERO AGAINST, ZERO ABSTENTIONS.

MOTION PASSES.

PLEASE HOLD YOUR APPLAUSE BECAUSE.

LET'S SEE. THE NEXT ONE IS F5, APPROVAL TO UTILIZE STATE AND INDUSTRY CERTIFYING AGENCIES FOR STUDENTS ENROLLED IN CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION.

PROGRAMING FOR THE 2022, 2023 AND 2023-2024 SCHOOL YEARS.

THIS ITEM IS BEING HELD AT THE REQUEST OF TRUSTEE BLUEFORD-DANIELS.

OH, WHAT WAS THIS ABOUT? THAT I'M SO CONFUSED.

I KNOW I SEE IT, BUT I'M.

REQUEST THAT IT BE RETURNED.

WE GO AHEAD AND VOTE ON IT.

YOU VOTE. YEAH, JUST.

LET'S JUST VOTE ON A MOTION.

SECOND, I HAVE A MOTION BY TRUSTEE DEIGAARD AND A SECOND BY TRUSTEE HERNANDEZ, PLEASE VOTE.

NINE FOR, I'M SORRY, 8 FOR, 0 AGAINST, ZERO ABSTENTIONS.

OUR NEXT ITEM HELD FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA IS F6.

I'M SORRY. NO, WE TOOK THAT OFF.

OKAY. NEXT, I WON APPROVAL OF VENDOR AWARDS FOR PURCHASES OVER 100,000 AND RATIFICATION OF VENDOR WORDS, WHICH IS UNDER 100,000.

PROJECT 230812.

TELEHEALTH SERVICES FOR STUDENTS.

THIS ITEM IS BEING HELD AT THE REQUEST OF TRUSTEE GUIDRY.

MAY I HAVE A MOTION? SECOND. BLUEFORD-DANIELS MOTION BY TRUSTEE DEIGAARD.

SECOND BY TRUSTEE BLUEFORD-DANIELS.

AND TRUSTEE GUIDRY.

SO I HAD A Q&A.

I ASKED ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR ITEM AND ASKED HOW MANY CAMPUSES THAT WE HAVE.

THIS ISN'T MINE.

IT'S THAT ONE. YEAH, WE'RE AT VIRTUAL LOCATIONS.

AND THE ANSWER IS NONE.

SO IF WE DON'T HAVE ANY VIRTUAL LOCATIONS, THEN WHY ARE WE BEING ASKED TO APPROVE A VENDOR WITH A $5 MILLION PROJECT TERM WITH NO VIRTUAL SCHOOLS? CHIEF REED. WHO'S ITEM IS THIS ONE.

THIS IS SEAN.

30812.

OUR PACKAGE PAGE 66.

ITS TOTAL SERVICES TO HEALTH SERVICES.

NAMED TRUSTEES.

SO THE INTENT IS TO BRING THE SERVICE, TELEHEALTH SERVICES TO CAMPUSES, NOT NECESSARILY JUST A VIRTUAL SCHOOL.

SO WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN, IF THIS ITEM GETS APPROVED, OUR CAMPUSES WILL HAVE ACCESS TO IMPLEMENT TELE SERVICE HEALTH SERVICES FOR PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH AND CAMPUSES TO COMPLEMENT THE WORK THAT OUR NURSES AND OUR COUNSELORS ARE DOING, BECAUSE WE HAVE SEEN HIGH DEMAND ON BEHAVIORAL SUPPORT AND WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH PARTNERS TO REFER OUR STUDENTS TO BE TREATED ON TIME. SO THIS IS SEEN AS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO BE ABLE TO OFFER THAT SERVICE TO OUR STUDENTS.

[01:00:06]

IF THE ITEM WERE TO BE APPROVED, IT'S GOING TO BE A PHASED IN APPROACH.

SO IT STARTS WITH 65 CAMPUSES AND THEN WE GO FROM THERE UNTIL IT'S ABOUT 90.

ALMOST 90% OF OUR CAMPUSES WILL BE ABLE TO HAVE ACCESS TO THIS SERVICE.

SO THEN THE SERVICE IS WHAT'S VIRTUAL, NOT CORRECT.

OKAY, SO NOT THE SCHOOL, BUT OKAY, SO THE SERVICE IS VIRTUAL.

AND AND SO YOU'RE STARTING OUT WITH 65 LOCATIONS.

CORRECT. DO YOU HAVE THOSE LOCATIONS IDENTIFIED YET? YES, MA'AM. IS THAT SOMETHING THAT CAN BE PRESENTED TO THE BOARD? YES. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

IF THAT WAS LOST IN SPACE OR SOMETHING.

YEAH. TRUSTEE WADE.

HOW WILL WE MONITOR THIS PROGRAM TO SEE THAT THE OUTCOMES ARE EFFECTIVE.

WILL THESE COMPANIES HAVE? PRESENT DATA FOR YOU TO TO BE ABLE TO SAY THEY WERE A WORTHWHILE INVESTMENT.

CORRECT. AND SO THE DUE DILIGENCE THAT WE HAVE DONE AROUND THESE SERVICES.

SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN USED. AND FOR THOSE RESEARCH THAT SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN USED FOR QUITE A FEW YEARS, BUT WITH COVID, IT HAS INTENSIFIED.

YOU KNOW, HAVING TO USE THAT.

SO WE LOOK AT REPORTING AND HOW IT IMPACTS DISCIPLINE, WHICH IS ONE OF THE KEY INDICATORS AND ALSO HOW IT IMPACTS DECREASING ATTENDANCE OR, YOU KNOW, ABSENTEEISM, RATHER.

SO WHAT WE LIKE TO OR WHAT WE ASPIRE IS TO MONITOR HOW THOSE PARTICIPATING SCHOOLS AND THE STUDENTS THAT ARE PART OF UTILIZING THE SERVICE, THAT THEY DON'T HAVE TO MISS INSTRUCTIONAL TIME BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT FEELING WELL OR THEY DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO THOSE MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT SERVICES AND THAT WE ARE ABLE TO KEEP THEM AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE IN CLASSROOM.

IF THEY DO HAVE SOMETHING BAD THAT IS VERY TREATABLE.

SO CREATE A WIN WIN SCENARIO FOR THE STUDENT SO THAT THEY STAY IN SCHOOLS AND THEN THEY HAVE ACCESS TO THE CARE THAT THEY NEED.

THE SERVICE DOES PROVIDE NOT ONLY USAGE REPORTING, BUT ALSO KIND OF LIKE HOW IT IMPACTS THE STUDENT ON THAT ACADEMIC AND DISCIPLINE ASPECT.

THAT WAS PERFECT. THANK YOU. THAT'S.

TRUSTEE, ALLEN.

THIS QUESTION IS FOR ATTORNEY MCBRIDE.

DO WE LEAVE THIS AS IT IS? BECAUSE THIS IS THIS IS A TELEHEALTH SERVICES FOR STUDENTS AT VIRTUAL LOCATIONS.

I KNOW THAT WE SAID THAT THAT'S NOT WHAT WE MEANT, BUT DO WE NEED TO CHANGE THE WORDING? WITH FROM VIRTUAL LOCATIONS INSTEAD OF AT VIRTUAL LOCATIONS.

GET MORE OF THE SPIRIT OF WHAT THIS ITEM.

SO SOMEONE COULD DO A MOTION TO AMEND.

SO IF SOMEBODY WANT TO MAKE A MOTION TO CHANGE THE WORD.

AND MAKE A MOTION TO ADDRESS MODIFY.

CAN YOU? WHAT IS IT TO SAY FOR STUDENTS? FROM THE WORD YES.

FROM AT TO FROM OK..

DO I HAVE A SECOND? HAVE A MOTION BY TRUSTEE WADE AND A SECOND BY TRUSTEE BLUEFORD-DANIELS.

PLEASE VOTE.

WELL, EVERY SINGLE TIME WE DO THIS, I ALWAYS WANT TO KNOW FROM ALEXIS IF THIS IS GOING TO CREATE A PROBLEM.

MR. SUPERINTENDENT, BEFORE WE MAKE ANY CHANGES.

SIMPLE. YES OR NO? I'M TOTALLY I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT.

OKAY. OKAY. OKAY.

THANK YOU. SO.

WE'RE VOTING. KENDALL.

TRUSTEE BAKER. I ALREADY VOTED.

OH, SORRY. DID SOMEBODY OK SO 8 FOR, ZERO AGAINST, ZERO ABSTENTIONS.

THAT WAS FOR THE CHANGE OF LANGUAGE.

NOW WE NEED TO VOTE ON THE ACTUAL ITEM.

282308 230812, PLEASE VOTE.

MYRNA. EIGHT FOR, ZERO AGAINST, ZERO ABSTENTIONS.

OUR NEXT ITEM IS I1, PROJECT 231000140, COLLEGE READINESS DATA SHARING HUB DESIGN SERVICES.

[01:05:03]

THIS ITEM IS BEING HELD AT THE REQUEST OF TRUSTEE WADE TO ALLOW FOR HER ABSTENTION.

MAY I HAVE A MOTION? SECOND HERNANDEZ.

PLEASE VOTE TRUSTEES.

SEVEN FOR, ZERO AGAINST, ONE ABSTENTION.

OUR NEXT ITEM IS I1, PROJECT 190205 SPECIAL EDUCATION TECHNOLOGY.

THIS ITEM IS BEING HELD AT THE REQUEST OF TRUSTEE GUIDRY.

MAY I HAVE A MOTION? SO MOVE, HERNANDEZ.

WE DIDN'T. YOU STILL HAVE TO VOTE.

PLEASE VOTE.

EIGHT FOR, ZERO AGAINST, ZERO ABSTENTIONS.

OUR NEXT ITEM HELD IS PROJECT 19901 HORIZONTAL VERTICAL LOUVRE BLINDS AND INSTALLATION.

THIS ITEM IS BEING HELD AT THE REQUEST OF TRUSTEE GUIDRY.

SO MOVE, HERNANDEZ.

BUT I DO HAVE A MOTION BY TRUSTEE.

AND ON THIS IN A SECOND BY TRUSTEE DEIGAARD.

PLEASE VOTE. I DO HAVE A QUESTION.

SORRY. GO AHEAD, TRUSTEE.

I SAW THE Q&A ON THIS AND I SAW A HATTIE MAE WHITE WAS GETTING BLINDS.

AND I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERY CAMPUS HAS THE BLINDS NECESSARY BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT THERE'S JUST A NEW SAFETY REQUIREMENT TO HAVE BLINDS THAT ARE ABLE TO CLOSE.

AND I WANT TO MAKE SURE, BECAUSE NOT EVERY CAMPUS WAS ON THIS LIST, BUT HATTIE MAE WHITE WAS SO FROM MY POINT OF VIEW.

FIRST, WE DO CAMPUSES AND THEN WE DO HATTIE MAE WHITE.

WE CAN, WE'RE GOING TO ABSOLUTELY HAVE OUR CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER LOOK INTO IT.

I DON'T HAVE AN ASSESSMENT IN TERMS OF EXACTLY WHERE OUR BLINDS ARE AT EACH ONE OF OUR SCHOOLS AT THIS GIVEN MOMENT TONIGHT.

SO I CAN'T CAN'T GUARANTEE YOU THAT.

I JUST DON'T WANT TO HEAR LATER THAT WE DON'T HAVE MONEY FOR BLINDS AT SCHOOLS BECAUSE WE'RE GIVING BLINDS TO HATTIE MAE WHITE.

I UNDERSTAND WHERE YOU'RE COMING FROM, BUT WHAT I'M WHAT I'M SHARING WITH YOU IS I DON'T HAVE THAT INFORMATION IN FRONT OF ME IN TERMS OF WHERE BLINDS ARE THAT AT EVERY EVERY FACILITY. ARE WE BUDGETED FOR THAT? WE. YES, THERE ARE SOME CAMPUSES AND HATTIE MAE WHITE THERE GETTING BLINDS.

BUT NOT ALL CAMPUSES.

TRUSTEE BLUEFORD-DANIELS.

I JUST DON'T WANT US TO GET CAUGHT UP IN THAT AGAIN.

YOU KNOW, THE GRANULAR PART OF IT.

I HAVE THIS THING WITH PEOPLE WHO OPEN BLINDS AND THEY BREAK.

SO EVERY TIME EVERYONE HAS BROKEN, WE GO AND REPLACE IT.

LET'S JUST GO AHEAD AND JUST DO THIS LEVEL OF BLINDS OR GET SOME ONES FROM WALMART AND LET'S MOVE ON.

TRUSTEE, ALLEN. I JUST WANTED TO REMIND THAT AND AGREE WITH TRUSTEE HERNANDEZ SAID, BECAUSE I DID TALK.

ALMOST I THINK LAST YEAR ABOUT ALBERT THOMAS NOT HAVING ANY BLINDS AND THE SUN WAS COMING IN AND THEY COULDN'T KEEP THE ROOMS COOL.

SO I KNOW THAT THEY WEREN'T ON THE LIST.

I LOOKED. BUT I DO KNOW THAT THAT'S ONE OF THE SCHOOLS THAT NEEDED BLINDS.

I JUST WANTED TO MAKE THAT COMMENT.

THANK YOU. TAKE UP A GO FUND ME.

TRUST. THAT WAS EVERYBODY.

ALL RIGHT. PLEASE VOTE.

THIS IS ITEM 19 0901.

8 FOR, ZERO AGAINST, ZERO ABSTENTIONS.

OK TRUSTEES.

IT'S 9:12.

IF THIS IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE YOUR VOTE, HOLD YOUR QUESTION AS A BOARD FOR ALL YOUR ONE ON ONE, PLEASE.

OUR NEXT ITEM HELD FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA IS I4, APPROVAL OF THE NOVEMBER GENERAL FUND BUDGET AMENDMENT.

NOVEMBER BUDGET AMENDMENT.

MADAM PRESIDENT, THIS SITE SO MOVED ON THIS REQUEST OF TRUSTEE GUIDRY.

HAVE A MOTION BY TRUSTEE HERNANDEZ AND I'LL DO A SECOND BY TRUSTEE DEIGAARD.

[01:10:06]

TRUSTEE GUIDRY. LET ME LET ME JUST SAY THAT ALL OF MY QUESTIONS FOR THE REST OF THE ITEMS I PULLED WERE RESPONDED TO SUFFICIENTLY IN Q&A.

SO IF ANOTHER ONE COMES UNDER MY NAME, YOU CAN GO AHEAD AND REMOVE IT AND PLACE IT BACK ON CONSENT AGENDA.

BECAUSE I HAD MY QUESTIONS ANSWERED IN Q&A, AND I'D LIKE TO THANK THE STAFF FOR THAT.

THANK YOU, SUPERINTENDENT HOUSE.

I THOUGHT I HAD PLACED THEM ALL BACK.

SORRY. THANK YOU.

I KNOW IT'S A LITTLE CONFUSING BECAUSE WE GET OUR ANSWERS AFTER THE FACT, SO MAYBE WE JUST NEED TO THINK OF A BETTER SYSTEM TO PUT STUFF BACK ON CONSENT.

PLEASE VOTE.

THIS IS I4.

EIGHT FOR, ZERO AGAINST, ZERO ABSTENTIONS.

MADAM PRESIDENT, REAL QUICKLY, I DON'T THINK F3 GOT PLACED ON CONSENT.

I THINK YOU GUYS WERE DISCUSSING IT.

AND THEN TRUSTEE BLUEFORD-DANIELS SAID NO, SHE DID NOT WANT IT ON CONSENT.

SO I THINK WE MIGHT HAVE TO DISCUSS THAT EVEN IF WE JUST GO DIRECTLY TO A VOTE.

OK F3.

YES. F THREE.

APPROVAL OF FALL 2022, CLASS SIZE WAIVER REQUESTS.

SO. SORRY ABOUT THAT.

YES. THE MOTION BY TRUSTEE.

THIS IS JUST THE MOTION.

WE HAVE A MOTION BY TRUSTEE HERNANDEZ AND A SECOND BY TRUSTEE DEIGAARD.

TRUSTEE BLUEFORD-DANIELS.

I JUST I ASKED IT ON THE Q&A, BUT I DIDN'T REALLY GET WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR BECAUSE WHEN WE TALKED ABOUT THE CLASS SIZES, I DIDN'T SEE WHAT THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF STUDENTS COULD BE.

I KNOW WE'RE TRYING TO GET THE WAIVERS.

SO WHEN I HEAR AVERAGES, I ALWAYS THINK ABOUT ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, AND THEN THREE BEING THE AVERAGE, YOU'VE GOT FIVE NUMBERS.

IF YOU GOT ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE.

SO MY QUESTION IS, WHAT'S THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF STUDENTS THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT AS FAR AS WAIVERS AND CLASS SIZES, 1 TO 22. SO WE HAVE TO APPLY FOR A WAIVER IF THE CLASS SIZE IS OVER 22 STUDENTS FOR EVERY ONE ADULT.

OKAY, BECAUSE I READ AVERAGE IN THERE, WE WILL PULL IT UP RIGHT QUICK.

WAS 24, THE AVERAGE WAS 24.

I THOUGHT IT WAS MORE THAN THAT.

I THOUGHT IT WAS. PULL THAT UP.

CAN YOU PULL IT UP, PLEASE? POINT SOMETHING.

IT'S ON THE NEXT PAGE. WHAT WAS IT F WHAT? DID I SAY K FOUR? AND I JUST WANTED TO BE SURE ABOUT THAT.

YEAH. MINE WAS A LEGITIMATE PULL THIS TIME.

LIKE, WAIT, I MEAN, ONE MORE GO DOWN.

THERE IS NO ABSOLUTE CAP.

OKAY. YEAH, RIGHT HERE.

THE PACE TO GO DOWN AND WHERE IT SHOWS THE AVERAGE IS WHERE THE VERBIAGE IS.

ONE MORE. WELL, ANOTHER ONE.

ANOTHER ONE. KEEP GOING.

IT LOOKS DIFFERENT. IT DOES.

IT LOOKS DIFFERENT.

YES. WHAT IS IT? IT DIDN'T SHOW THE AVERAGES COME DOWN ONE MORE.

THAT ONE RIGHT HERE. THAT'S IT RIGHT THERE.

SO IT SHOWS THE AVERAGE CLASSROOM SIZE IN THE PRE CASE ALL THE WAY TO THE MULTI LEVELS.

AND WITH THE WAIVERS THERE, IT'S SAYING I KNOW WE TALKED ABOUT 1.22 AND IT SAYS WITH THE WAIVER, OKAY, 24.3 AND WITHOUT THE WAIVER, IT'S IT'S BASICALLY 14 14.5.

OKAY. I JUST WANTED THAT CLARITY BECAUSE I WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE WERE WITHIN A MANAGEABLE AMOUNT OF CHILDREN IN PER CLASS.

SO THANK YOU FOR THAT. PLEASE VOTE.

SEVEN FOR, ZERO AGAINST, ZERO ABSTENTIONS.

OUR NEXT ITEM IS J2 ADOPTION OF RESOLUTION TO PAY EMPLOYEES FOR WORK THEY MISSED AS A RESULT OF DISTRICT CLOSURE DUE TO HOUSTON ASTROS WORLD SERIES CELEBRATION.
