I've cut and pasted most of our Tweets from last night's SFUSD Board of Education meeting to create a short recap. The text in blue is tweets so forgive brevity and grammar. Thanks to PPS-SF member Ali Collins for attending the meeting and contributing to #boardwatch! Anyone can join the fun in the future by attending a meeting or watching from home and tagging us @ppssf #boardwatch
Here's the recap:
This item was supposed to come later but was moved up and by vote the rules were suspended to allow the resolution to be voted on without going to committee first. SF Fire Chief Joanna Hayes White, student delegates (who cosponsored) and others spoke in support.
Report of the Community Advisory Committee for Special Education
Board and Staff Comment on CAC report:
Speakers came to the podium organized by groups speaking on the same topic.
A series of resolutions making minor changes to board bylaws and policies were discussed and voted on.
Pathways to SFUSD Careers and Internship Program Resolution. This resolution would direct the district to create a pilot plan in 2016-17 for SFUSD students to participate in paid internships within SFUSD, work with colleges and universities to create enrollment preferences for SFUSD alumni interested in attending programs that align with careers in SFUSD, and give preference to SFUSD alumni in recruitment and hiring for all SFUSD open positions.
Those who were still tuned in around hour five of this meeting were rewarded with two data-packed reports: on Enrollment Projections and SBAC Benchmark Year Results
Here is the powerpoint presented on Enrollment Projections
I admit I was not listening very attentively during this last part of the meeting. Very short reports were shared from the various board committees.
