PLEDGE] OUR FIRST ORDER OF BUSINESS TONIGHT WILL BE THE PUBLIC HEARING 2018-2019 TEXAS ACADEMIC

[3.0 Public Hearing]

PERFORMANCE REPORT.

DR. MCFARLAND. MADAM PRESIDENT, BOARD MEMBERS, MR. KEITH IS HERE MR. KEITH. GOOD EVENING PRESIDENT DAVIS.

BOARD MEMBERS AND DR.

MCFARLAND. TONIGHT, WE ARE HERE TO CONDUCT OUR ANNUAL PUBLIC HEARING AND REVIEW OF THE 2018 2019 TEXAS ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE REPORT OR TAPR.

THE TEXAS ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE REPORT PULLS TOGETHER DATA ON THE PERFORMANCE OF EVERY SCHOOL AND EVERY DISTRICT IN TEXAS EVERY YEAR.

THE DATA IS DIS-AGGREGATED IN A VARIETY OF WAYS TO PROVIDE A COMPREHENSIVE PICTURE OF THE PERFORMANCE OF CAMPUSES AND DISTRICTS.

PRINTED COPIES OF THE TAPR ARE AVAILABLE AT CENTRAL ADMINISTRATION AND CAMPUS FRONT OFFICES AND IT CAN BE ACCESSED ELECTRONICALLY THROUGH THE DISTRICT AND TEA WEB SITE.

THE ANNUAL REPORT HAS FIVE REQUIRED COMPONENTS TAPR DATA, THE PEMS FINANCIAL STANDARDS REPORT, DISTRICT ACCREDITATION STATUS, REPORT OF VIOLENT OR CRIMINAL INCIDENTS, AND INFORMATION FROM THE TEXAS HIGHER EDUCATION COORDINATING BOARD, OR THECB.

[00:05:04]

IN 2018 2019 CROWLEY ISD SAW SIGNIFICANT GROWTH IN OUR OVERALL ACCOUNTABILITY SCORE.

IN THE PREVIOUS YEAR THE DISTRICT WAS RATED A C WITH AN OVERALL SCORE OF 70.

THIS YEAR, THE DISTRICT RECEIVED A B RATING WITH A 13 POINT JUMP TO AN OVERALL SCORE OF AN 83.

ALTHOUGH WE'VE ALSO SEEN SIGNIFICANT GROWTH IN THE PERFORMANCE OF OUR SPECIAL EDUCATION STUDENTS, THE DISTRICT REMAINED THE SAME AS THE 18-19 SCHOOL YEAR WITH THE NEEDS INTERVENTION, DETERMINATION STATUS.

BASED ON THIS RATING THE DISTRICT WILL ENGAGE IN A CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT PLANNING PROCESS, AND THE PRIMARY FOCUS TO PROMOTE SUSTAINABLE IMPROVEMENT WILL BE ENSURING THAT SPECIAL EDUCATION STUDENTS ARE PLACED AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE IN THE GENERAL EDUCATION SETTING. DISTINCTION DESIGNATIONS COMPARE A CAMPUS TO 39 OTHER SCHOOLS IN TEXAS THAT SHARE SIMILAR COMPOSITION, INCLUDING SIZE, ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED PERCENTAGE, SPECIAL EDUCATION PERCENTAGE AND MORE.

CAMPUSES SCORING IN THE TOP 25 PERCENT OF THEIR COMPARISON GROUP ARE ELIGIBLE FOR A DISTINCTION. CROWLEY ISD HAD NINE CAMPUSES RECEIVE 16 DISTINCTIONS IN THE 2018-19 SCHOOL YEAR AND FIVE OF OUR CAMPUSES RECEIVED TWO OR MORE DISTINCTIONS.

THOSE CAMPUSES WITH TWO OR MORE DISTINCTIONS ARE SYCAMORE ELEMENTARY, JACKIE CARDEN ELEMENTARY, OAKMONT ELEMENTARY, SUE CROUCH ELEMENTARY AND MARY HARRIS.

THE NEXT FEW SLIDES LOOK AT OVERALL DISTRICT PERFORMANCE BY CONTENT AREA.

YOU CAN SEE INCREASES IN NEARLY EVERY CONTENT AREA AT THE APPROACHES GRADE LEVEL STANDARD AND ACROSS ALL SUBJECTS.

AND SOCIAL STUDIES HELD STEADY AT 71 PERCENT PASSING AT APPROACHES.

THE SECOND LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE ON THE STAAR TEST IS THE MEET'S GRADE LEVEL STANDARD, AND THAT'S SHOWN HERE.

IN FOUR OUT OF FIVE SUBJECTS TESTED THE DISTRICT AS A WHOLE.

MADE GAINS IN STUDENTS PASSING AT THIS STANDARD.

OUR END OF COURSE, OR EOC RESULTS ARE THE FIVE TESTS THAT STUDENTS MUST TAKE IN ORDER TO GRADUATE HIGH SCHOOL.

AS YOU CAN SEE, THERE ARE GAINS IN ALL CONTENT AREAS WITH SIGNIFICANT GROWTH IN BIOLOGY AND U.S. HISTORY AT THE MEET'S GRADE LEVEL PERFORMANCE STANDARD.

TEXAS EDUCATION CODE ALSO REQUIRES DISTRICTS TO REPORT ON THE PERFORMANCE OF HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES DURING THEIR FIRST YEAR OF ENROLLMENT IN A TEXAS INSTITUTION OF HIGHER EDUCATION. THE TABLE ON THIS SLIDE SHOWS THE PERFORMANCE OF TWO THOUSAND SEVENTEEN GRADUATES, WHICH IS THE MOST RECENT DATA AVAILABLE IN THEIR FIRST YEAR OF HIGHER ED CATEGORIZED BY GPA.

THIS DATA IS AVAILABLE PUBLICLY FOR ALL DISTRICTS IN TEXAS THROUGH THE TEXAS HIGHER EDUCATION COORDINATING BOARD.

A FEW ADDITIONAL HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE TAPR INCLUDE AN ATTENDANCE RATE THAT'S WITHIN FOUR TENTHS OF A PERCENT OF THE STATE AVERAGE, A GRADUATION RATE THAT OUTPERFORMS THE STATE BY ALMOST 5 PERCENT AND GRADUATES ENROLLING IN TEXAS INSTITUTES OF HIGHER EDUCATION AT A RATE EXCEEDING BOTH THE REGION AND THE STATE.

ONE THING TO KEEP IN MIND ON THIS SLIDE IS THAT OUR ADVANCED ACADEMIC AND CTE DATA DOES LAG BY ONE YEAR IN THE TAPR.

SO WE DO HAVE SOME HIGHLIGHTS FROM 2016 17 TO 2017 18.

WE SAW NEARLY A 10 PERCENT INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS COMPLETING AN ADVANCED COURSE FROM 16-17 FROM 30 PERCENT TO 40 PERCENT.

AND NOT ONLY DID MORE STUDENTS ENROLL IN ADVANCED COURSES, BUT THEY ALSO PARTICIPATED IN AP TESTING IN ENGLISH, MATH AND SCIENCE AT A RATE SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN THE PREVIOUS YEAR. AND WITH EVEN MORE STUDENTS PARTICIPATING IN AP, WE STILL SAW AN INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS EARNING A 3, 4 OR 5 ON THEIR AP EXAM.

FINALLY, THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS GRADUATING IN 2018 WHO COMPLETED A COHERENT SEQUENCE OF CTE COURSES MORE THAN DOUBLED FROM 16 17 TO 17 18.

IN TERMS OF SCHOOL SAFETY, WE'RE PLEASED TO REPORT ZERO INCIDENTS THAT INVOLVED A FIREARM OR ILLEGAL KNIFE AND ONLY ONE INCIDENT WHICH INVOLVED THE USE OR POSSESSION OF A PROHIBITED WEAPON. FINALLY, PEIMS FINANCIAL STANDARD REPORTS FOR SUMMARIZED HERE AND ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC VIEWING VIA THE TEA WEB SITE.

SO IN CLOSING, I'D LIKE TO REFER THE COMMUNITY BACK TO WHERE THEY CAN ACCESS THE TAPR REPORT AND REVIEW THE WORK OF CROWLEY ISD FOR THEMSELVES.

PRINTED COPIES OF THE TAPR REPORT CAN BE ACCESSED BOTH AT THE ADMINISTRATION BUILDING AND CAMPUS FRONT OFFICES, AS WELL AS ELECTRONICALLY THROUGH THE TEA AND DISTRICT WEB SITE.

AND I'D BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

THANK YOU. ARE THERE ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? WELL, I'D JUST LIKE TO SAY THANK YOU TO DR.

[00:10:04]

MCFARLAND FOR HIS LEADERSHIP.

AND THANK YOU TO STAFF BECAUSE THERE WAS A LOT OF HARD WORK.

AND I THINK IT BEARS SAYING AGAIN THAT LAST YEAR WE WERE A C AND THIS YEAR WE'RE A B AS WE WORK OUR WAY TOWARD BECOMING AN A DISTRICT.

AND THAT TAKES A LOT OF HARD WORK.

SO WE CERTAINLY WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO DR.

MCFARLAND AND HIS STAFF FOR ALL THE HARD WORK IT TOOK TO GET US TO THAT LEVEL.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

[4.0 Adjournment of Public Hearing]

SO THAT CONCLUDES THE PUBLIC HEARING PART OF OUR MEETING, AND WE'RE GOING TO ADJOURN AT 6:11 AND I'M CALLING TO ORDER THE REGULAR MEETING OF THE

[5.0 Call to Order of Regular Board Meeting]

BOARD AT THIS TIME.

TRUSTEES AND CERTIFY THAT WE'RE IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE REVISIONS OF SECTION 551.041 SUBCHAPTER C. GOVERNMENT CODE AS AMENDED BY THE 73RD LEGISLATURE PURSUANT TO PUBLIC NOTICE OF THIS MEETING AND A QUORUM IS PRESENT.

[6.0 Board Report Item(s)]

OUR FIRST ORDER OF BUSINESS WILL BE BOARD REPORT ITEMS. CISD BOARD OF TRUSTEES LONE STAR GOVERNANCE TRAINING.

DO WE HAVE ANYONE THAT WANTS TO MAKE A COMMENT? MS. BENTON. HELLO.

I WANTED TO GIVE A BRIEF UPDATE TO THE COMMUNITY AND TO OUR STAFF HERE TONIGHT ON THE LONE STAR GOVERNANCE TRAINING THAT THE SCHOOL BOARD WENT THROUGH THIS PAST FRIDAY AND SATURDAY WITH OUR SUPERINTENDENT, DR.

MCFARLAND. LONE STAR GOVERNANCE IS A TRAINING FOR SCHOOL BOARDS.

AND THERE'S A LOT TO IT.

ITS TWO FULL DAYS. BUT ONE OF THE MAIN TENANTS OF THIS TRAINING IS THAT STUDENT OUTCOMES DO NOT CHANGE UNTIL ADULT BEHAVIORS CHANGE.

AND SO WE SPENT SOME TIME REALLY INVESTIGATING OUR ROLE IN THAT.

AND LIKE ANY GIANT AND IMPORTANT AND IMPACTFUL CHANGE THAT NEEDS TO BE MADE, YOU HAVE TO ASK YOURSELF, WHO'S THE FIRST PERSON THAT NEEDS TO MAKE THAT CHANGE.

AND IN THE CASE OF THE STUDENT OUTCOMES, THE FIRST PERSON THAT NEEDS TO CHANGE IS US.

SO EACH ONE OF US ON THE SCHOOL BOARD AND US AS A COLLECTIVE UNIT.

SO WE SPENT SOME TIME DIGGING IN, REALLY LOOKING AT THE IDEA OF INTEGRITY AND WHAT THAT MEANS AS SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS AND OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR STUDENT OUTCOMES IN PARTICULAR.

SO WE SPENT SOME TIME REFLECTING AND FURTHER DEFINING OUR ROLES IN STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT.

WE DID A VERY DEEP DATA DIVE INTO ALL SORTS OF DATA SIMILAR TO THE DATA THAT YOU SAW TODAY DURING OUR PUBLIC HEARING.

AND WHAT YOU WILL SEE AS A RESULT OF THIS TRAINING FROM US.

AND WHAT WE'RE COMMITTING TO FOR YOU IS YOU'RE GOING TO SEE A NEW AND DIFFERENT KIND OF FOCUS FROM US ON STUDENT OUTCOMES.

SO YOU'RE GOING TO SEE SOME INTENTIONAL INQUIRY AND SOME INTENTIONAL REPORTING ON A VERY FEW KEY STUDENT OUTCOMES THAT WE IDENTIFIED.

WE DID SPEND SOME TIME IN THE TRAINING REALLY TALKING ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OUTCOMES, WHICH ARE OUR BIG GOALS THAT WE HAVE FOR STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT.

AND WE'VE IDENTIFIED A FEW VERY KEY OUTCOMES THAT WE'RE SHOOTING TOWARD.

THEN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THOSE OUTCOMES AND THE INPUTS AND OUTPUTS THAT COME FROM THOSE. SO THE INPUTS ARE THE RESOURCES, THE TIME, THE MONEY, THE EFFORT, THE STRATEGIES, THE PEOPLE THAT WE PUT IN PLACE TOWARD THOSE OUTCOMES THAT WE'RE REACHING FOR THOSE INPUTS ARE REALLY HANDLED BY OUR SUPERINTENDENT.

THAT'S HIS ROLE IN THIS.

AND THEN WE HELP TO DEFINE SOME OUTPUTS.

THOSE ARE THINGS THAT HAPPEN AS A RESULT OF THOSE INPUTS THAT PREDICT THE SUCCESS OF THE OUTCOME. SO I KNOW THAT'S A LOT.

THAT'S TWO DAYS WORTH LIKE IN JUST A FEW SENTENCES.

BUT THE POINT IS, IT WAS A VERY AMAZING EXPERIENCE FOR US AND VERY MEANINGFUL AND IMPACTFUL FOR US TO DIVE INTO WHAT OUR INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY IS, WHAT OUR INDIVIDUAL ROLE IS AS BOARD MEMBERS REPRESENTING THE COMMUNITY, BUT ALSO AS A COLLECTIVE, WHAT OUR ROLE IS IN THAT, AND THEN HELPING TO DEFINE WHAT THOSE KEY OUTCOMES ARE THAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR. SO.

I THINK THAT SUMS IT UP. THAT WAS QUITE COMPREHENSIVE, MS. BENTON. WOULD ANYBODY ELSE LIKE TO HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY? THE ONLY THING I'LL ADD TO THAT IS CERTAINLY EVERYTHING MS.

[00:15:05]

BENTON SAID BUT ANOTHER PIECE OF WHAT WE DO AND OUR HOPES AND GOALS FOR STUDENTS IS WORKING AND PARTNERING WITH OUR PARENTS.

SO WE CERTAINLY WANT TO INVITE YOU TO PARTNER WITH US AS WE CREATE OUR GOALS AND TRY TO HELP YOUR STUDENTS AND YOU REALIZE THE DREAMS THAT YOU HAVE FOR YOUR STUDENTS.

SO WE WELCOME YOUR PARTNERSHIP.

PLEASE JOIN US.

THANK YOU. OK.

[7.0 Board Celebrations]

WE'LL MOVE NOW TO OUR BOARD CELEBRATIONS.

DOES ANYONE HAVE A CELEBRATION THEY WANT TO SHARE? OK. SO ON THE FRIDAY AND SATURDAY THAT WE DID LONE STAR GOVERNANCE, WHICH I THINK WAS VERY BEFITTING BECAUSE ONE, I DON'T THINK THERE'S ANY SECRET THAT I LOVE WORKING WITH THIS TEAM. I THINK THAT LONE STAR GOVERNANCE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A CHALLENGE FOR US AND TRYING TO KIND OF DISTILL WHAT WE WANTED OUR GOALS TO BE AND IDENTIFY WHAT OUR ROLES ARE AND WHAT OUR LANES ARE AND I THINK WE WERE VERY G.T.

IN OUR SESSION BECAUSE THAT WAS NOT VERY HARD FOR US BECAUSE WE FEEL I THINK WE SHARE A COMMITMENT TO OUR STUDENTS AND TO OUR DISTRICT.

BUT I WANTED TO ADD THAT ON SATURDAY WE HAD THE PLEASURE OF BREAKING AND GOING OVER TO VISIT DAVID WALKER, WHERE THERE WERE FIVE SCHOOLS, AM I MY CORRECT, CONVENING AND DISCUSSING VARIOUS INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGIES.

IT WAS A PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR THOSE CAMPUSES TO STRATEGIZE AND ALSO MODEL FOR EACH OTHER THE GREAT THINGS THAT ARE WORKING ON THEIR CAMPUSES.

SO WHAT I GOT TO SEE OR WHAT WAS SO GREAT ABOUT THAT WAS KNOWING THAT WHILE WE WERE HERE WORKING THAT OUR DISTRICT EMPLOYEES AND OUR TEAMS, OUR FRONT LINE, OUR TEACHERS AND OUR ADMINISTRATORS ARE EQUALLY INVESTED IN IMPROVING THE OUTCOMES OF OUR STUDENTS IN OUR DISTRICT. AND THEY WERE WORKING VERY HARD THERE ON A COLD, WINDY SATURDAY.

WHEN I KNOW THAT MOST PEOPLE WOULD HAVE RATHER BEEN AT HOME.

SO I DO WANT TO SAY KUDOS TO OUR STAFF, DR.

MCFARLAND, OUR INSTRUCTIONAL LEADERS THAT ARE OUT THERE CHAMPIONING THIS WORK AND OUR TEACHERS WHO ARE COMMITTED AND DEDICATING THEIR TIME TO GO THE EXTRA MILE TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SUCCESSFUL.

WE ARE GOING TO GET THAT A.

ABSOLUTELY WE ARE.

THANK YOU. ANY OTHER CELEBRATIONS.

I HAVE ONE. MR. GRASSIA.

YES. SO A COUPLE WEEKS AGO, I GUESS, WAS THE CHEF COMPETITION AT CISD AND WE HAD THREE AWESOME TEAMS THAT COMPETED AND I WAS HAPPY TO GET INVITED ONCE AGAIN TO THIS GREAT EVENT.

AND DO WE HAVE ANY ARE Y'ALL GOING TO DO ANYTHING? OK. BUT ANYWAYS, THE FOOD WAS AMAZING.

THE KIDS ARE AMAZING AND THEY'RE GONNA COMPETE, I GUESS IN MARCH.

SO REALLY, REALLY COOL.

AND LIKE I SAID, GREAT FOOD.

SO GREAT JOB.

THANK YOU, MR. GRASSIA.

ANY OTHERS? OK.

[8.0 Recognition Item(s)]

MCFARLAND. OUR CELEBRATIONS CONTINUE TONIGHT WITH SCHOOL BOARD APPRECIATION MONTH.

AND THIS ALIGNS WITH GOALS 1, 2 AND 3 OF OUR BRAND NEW STRATEGIC PLAN, DRIVING STUDENTS, ENGAGED COMMUNITY AND EMPOWERED STAFF.

THAT'S THE STATEWIDE THEME THIS YEAR.

AND ROOM THESE SEVEN VOLUNTEERS HERE WORK TIRELESSLY TO HELP OUR STUDENTS YOUR STUDENTS AND STAFF SUCCEED BOTH NOW AND IN THE FUTURE.

I MENTIONED A LOT OF MEETINGS AND TRAININGS THAT YOU ALL ATTEND.

[00:20:04]

AND A LOT HAS HAPPENED IN A VERY SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME.

AND SO TONIGHT WE WANT TO CELEBRATE BOTH THE START OF THE NEW YEAR 2020 AND SCHOOL BOARD RECOGNITION MONTH. WE ASKED SOME OF OUR STUDENTS AND STAFF AND PARENTS TO HELP REMIND US OF SOME OF THESE ACCOMPLISHMENTS.

I'M SO EXCITED ABOUT THOSE CAMPUSES ACTUALLY HITTING THAT MARK.

THIS AWARD IS SPONSORED BY OUR PARTNERS AT ECU AND ALADDIN CAFĂ© HERE IN CROWLEY. AND THIS MONTH WE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO GO OUT TO MEADOWCREEK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TO SURPRISE OUR WINNER.

WATCH THIS VIDEO.

HEART FOR ALL KIDS.

HE GOES TO GREAT LENGTHS EACH AND EVERY DAY AND MEADOWCREEK TO MAKE IT A GROWTH PROCESS FOR EVERY STUDENT.

AND DID Y'ALL KNOW THAT HE INCORPORATES CURRICULUM FROM YOUR OTHER CLASSES INTO PE.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE HE DOES, HE BUILDS RELATIONSHIPS WITH EACH AND EVERY STUDENT TO INSPIRE YOU ALL TO BECOME YOUR BEST.

AND THAT'S NOT JUST DURING PE.

IT'S ALSO AFTER SCHOOL BECAUSE HE HAS STARTED HERE AT MEADOWCREEK AN AFTER SCHOOL SPORTS PROGRAM FOR STUDENTS.

THE BE PART OF TEAMS. THEY'RE HAVING PROBLEMS OR ISSUES.

SO HE'S NOT JUST THE COACH.

HE'S ALSO A PHENOMENAL TEACHER.

HE'S ALSO A PHENOMENAL ROLE MODEL FOR THEM.

SOME OF THE STUDENTS THAT DON'T HAVE THEIR FATHERS IN THEIR LIFE, THEY LOOK TO COACH JACKSON AS ONE OF THOSE ROLE MODELS.

WORKING TOGETHER IS A VERY IMPORTANT SKILL. WHERE DO YOU NEED THAT SKILL AS AN ADULT TO WORK TOGETHER AS A TEAM. WHERE MUST YOU HAVE TO USE THAT SKILL AS AN ADULT.

MY JOB TO ME IS REALLY EASY.

I MEAN, I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE MOST PEOPLE CAN'T SAY THAT THEY REALLY LOVE THEIR JOB.

BUT CHILDREN AND SPORTS TOGETHER FOR ME JUST SEEMS LIKE I MEAN IT IS THE BEST THING EVER.

[00:45:16]

HE LOVES EVERYBODY THE SAME WAY.

HE STEPS IN WHEREVER HE'S NEEDED.

WE PREVIOUSLY HAD A BACK TO SCHOOL ROLLER SKATING PARTY.

MY CHILDHOOD WAS JUST THE BEST.

SO I LOVE TO SEE CHILDREN SMILE.

I WOULD DO ALMOST ANYTHING TO MAKE A CHILD HAPPY BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE IF THAT CHILD IS HAPPY AND GROWS UP AS A HAPPY ADULT WE CAN KEEP THAT CYCLE GOING.

I FEEL LIKE I'M IN THE RIGHT PLACE.

I FEEL LIKE THIS IS HOME.

AND I JUST LOVE TEACHING.

I LOVE MEADOWCREEK.

I LOVE CROWLEY ISD. COACH JACKSON COME ON UP HERE.

SO THAT VIDEO SAID A LOT ABOUT YOU AND YOUR PROGRAM.

TELL US WHY YOU STARTED THE AFTER SCHOOL.

YOU ALREADY DID SO MUCH DURING THE SCHOOL DAY.

WHAT WAS IT ABOUT THAT AFTER SCHOOL TIME THAT INSPIRED YOU? WELL, THE WORLD IS SO TECH WE HAVE SO MUCH TECHNOLOGY AND KIDS NOWADAYS THEY ARE A LOT OF THEM HAVE CELL PHONES, COMPUTERS, AND THAT'S WHAT THEY DO.

YOU GO AROUND AND MOST OF THE ORGANIZATIONS THE NUMBERS ARE DOWN FROM KIDS PLAYING SPORTS. SO I FELT LIKE THAT BRINGING SPORTS TO THE SCHOOL WITH THE RELATIONSHIP THAT I HAVE WITH THE KIDS. I CAN GET MORE KIDS OUT AND GET THEM BACK INVOLVED TO PLAYING AND ACTUALLY PLAYING INSTEAD OF PLAYING WITH THEIR FINGERS ON THE VIDEO GAMES.

SO I JUST FEEL LIKE IT'S A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR MYSELF AND FOR THE KIDS OF CROWLEY ISD.

SO THE STUDENTS ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT.

THE STAFF ADORES YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOU DO FOR NOT ONLY MEADOWCREEK, BUT ALL OF CROWLEY ISD.

SO THIS IS FUNDED BY THE BILL AND MELINDA GATES FOUNDATION AND IS ORGANIZED AROUND A CENTRAL HUB THAT'S MADE UP OF EDUCATE TEXAS, THE DANA CENTER AND LEARNING FORWARD, WHICH IS A NATIONAL PROFESSIONAL LEARNING ORGANIZATION.

SO WE GAVE YOU SOME INFORMATION ABOUT TX NSI IN AUGUST AND WE'RE LOOKING AT CONTINUING OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH THEM FOR ANOTHER THREE AND A HALF YEARS.

SO TONIGHT WE HAVE SOME REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE HUB, KRISTIN KUHNE, ERIN PHILIP AND MICHELLE BOWMAN. AND MS. KUHNE WILL BE SPEAKING TO YOU TONIGHT ABOUT OUR PARTNERSHIP TOGETHER.

[00:50:05]

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. IT'S NICE TO SEE YOU ALL TONIGHT.

MADAM PRESIDENT, DR.

MCFARLAND, ESTEEMED MEMBERS OF THE BOARD.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR GIVING US A FEW MINUTES TO ACTUALLY HIGHLIGHT THE GREAT WORK THAT WE'VE BEEN DOING WITH YOUR MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHERS AND TO CELEBRATE THE FACT THAT THE GRANT GOT CONTINUED AND WE'LL BE ABLE TO CONTINUE TO DO THAT GREAT WORK TOGETHER OVER THE NEXT THREE YEARS. MY NAME'S KRISTIN KUHNE, AS NICK INTRODUCED AND I AM A SENIOR DIRECTOR AT EDUCATE TEXAS.

TONIGHT I HAVE MY COLLEAGUES, ERIN PHILIP, WHO IS ALSO WITH EDUCATE TEXAS AND MICHELLE BOWMAN, Y'ALL WANNA GIVE A LITTLE WAVE, WITH LEARNING FORWARD.

AND WE'RE HERE ON BEHALF OF THE TEXAS NETWORK FOR SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT.

GIVEN THAT THIS IS THE END OF SCHOOL BOARD APPRECIATION MONTH, WE JUST WANT TO EXTEND OUR APPRECIATION FOR YOU ALL AS WELL.

I AM ALSO A TRUSTEE FOR RICHARDSON ISD.

I SERVE IN RICHARDSON ISD, SO I PERSONALLY UNDERSTAND THE SACRIFICE AND COMMITMENT THAT IT TAKES TO BE HERE TONIGHT AND WHAT YOU GUYS WANT TO DO FOR YOUR COMMUNITY.

I WATCHED YOUR PROFILE VIDEOS BEFORE I CAME TONIGHT AND I HAVE TO SAY WOW IS CROWLEY ISD LUCKY TO HAVE TRUSTEES WITH SUCH DEEP, DEEP EXPERTISE AS YOU GUYS WHO ARE ALL ABOUT ADVOCATING FOR STUDENTS AND WANT TO BE THE ABSOLUTE BEST IN TARRANT COUNTY.

AND I JUST THINK THEY'RE VERY LUCKY TO HAVE YOU GUYS.

I WANT TO SAY THAT BEYOND APPRECIATE THAT APPRECIATION WE'RE HERE TO PARTNER WITH YOU AND TO HELP YOU REACH YOUR GOAL THAT EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOUR STUDENTS IS THRIVING.

SO THAT'S WHAT OUR WORK IS HERE TO SUPPORT.

SO I KNOW AS TRUSTEES, WE ALL UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE MANY BARRIERS THAT CAN KEEP EACH AND EVERY STUDENT FROM SUCCEEDING AND STAYING ON THE PATH TO COLLEGE AND CAREER.

ONE OF THOSE CRITICAL FACTORS IS MASTERING MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH.

BEING ON GRADE LEVEL ON MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH IS AN IMPORTANT FACTOR TO SET STUDENTS UP FOR SUCCESS IN HIGH SCHOOL.

OUR NETWORK SUPPORTS CAMPUS TEAMS WORKING TO REMOVE THESE BARRIERS, STARTING WITH MATH PROFICIENCY SO THAT ALL STUDENTS CAN SUCCEED.

THIS IS OUR WHY. OUR NETWORK AIM IS TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF BLACK, LATINO AND LOW INCOME STUDENTS WHO ARE ON TRACK IN EIGHTH GRADE.

WHEN WE LAUNCHED THE NETWORK LAST YEAR, THE AIM WAS MORE NARROWLY FOCUSED ON EFFECTIVE MATH TEACHING PRACTICES, AND IN THE SECOND PHASE OF THE WORK, WE'RE ACTUALLY ABLE TO BROADEN THE AIM TO AN ON TRACK NETWORK ON TRACK METRIC FOR EIGHTH GRADE STUDENTS THAT PROVIDES ALL FOUR OF YOUR MIDDLE SCHOOLS WHEN YOU HAVE FOUR MIDDLE SCHOOLS EVEN MORE FLEXIBILITY TO ADDRESS THEIR LOCAL CHALLENGES IN A VARIETY OF WAYS.

SO WHETHER THOSE CHANGE IDEAS ARE AROUND SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING OR ATTENDANCE OR THINGS LIKE THAT, THOSE WILL BE THINGS THAT YOUR TEACHER TEAMS WILL BE TACKLING IN ADDITION TO MATH.

SO WHAT IS THE TEXAS NETWORK FOR SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT.

IT'S A NETWORK OF MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH EDUCATORS WORKING TOGETHER TO IMPROVE THEIR PRACTICE TO ACCELERATE STUDENT SUCCESS.

AS MR. KEITH MENTIONED, THERE ARE THREE PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS.

WE CALL OURSELVES THE HUB.

IT'S EDUCATE TEXAS, U.T.

DANA CENTER AND THEN LEARNING FORWARD.

AND WE BRING HIGH QUALITY, HIGH IMPACT TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE TO THE NETWORK ACROSS OUR RESPECTIVE AREAS OF EXPERTISE IN MATH, PROFESSIONAL LEARNING AND NETWORK DEVELOPMENT.

RIGHT NOW, EIGHTH GRADE TEACHERS FROM ALL THREE OF YOUR MIDDLE SCHOOLS ARE A PART OF THIS NETWORK, AS WELL AS TEACHERS FROM THREE MIDDLE SCHOOLS IN DUNCANVILLE ISD.

NEXT YEAR, WE'LL BE EXPANDING TO INCLUDE SIXTH AND SEVENTH GRADE TEACHERS FROM YOUR MIDDLE SCHOOLS AS WELL AS YOUR FOURTH MIDDLE SCHOOL AND THEN RECRUITING A THIRD DISTRICT TO JOIN US IN THAT NETWORK.

SO WE GET SOME GREAT CROSS COLLABORATION BETWEEN YOUR CAMPUSES AS WELL AS ACROSS DISTRICTS ABOUT THE THINGS THAT ARE WORKING.

SO EXACTLY WHAT DO WE DO TO MOVE THE NEEDLE TOWARDS THAT AIM? WE PROVIDE COACHING FOR TEACHERS AND THEIR PLC'S THAT SUPPORTS THEIR DEVELOPMENT AS EXPERTS IN TEACHING MATHEMATICS AND LEADING POSITIVE CHANGE IN THE CLASSROOM.

THE COACHING IS INTENTIONALLY ALIGNED WITH CAMPUS GOALS.

SO WE'RE WORKING TOGETHER TO CREATE SUSTAINABLE IMPROVEMENTS AND ENERGIZING YOUR TEACHERS AS CHANGE AGENTS, CREATING MEASURABLE PROGRESS IN STUDENT OUTCOMES.

YOUR MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH TEACHERS ARE INTRODUCING CHANGES IN THEIR CLASSROOMS, FOCUSED ON INCREASING RIGOR AND LITERACY, AND SEEING IMPROVEMENTS IN THE USE OF ACADEMIC LANGUAGE AND STUDENT DISCOURSE AS A RESULT.

OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL YEARS, WE WILL DEPLOY A GRADUAL RELEASE MODEL SUPPORTING YOUR LOCAL IMPROVEMENT FACILITATORS TO TAKE OVER THIS COACHING.

OVER THE LAST YEAR, WE'VE SEEN THE DEDICATION AND ENTHUSIASM OF YOUR TEACHERS TO IMPROVE THEIR PRACTICE, AND THE NETWORK HAS BENEFITED FROM THE THOUGHT PARTNERSHIP OF DISTRICT LEADERS LIKE NICK KEITH AND CRYSTAL CAULDRON.

THIS WORK IS PART OF A NATIONAL EFFORT FUNDED BY THE BILL AND MELINDA GATES FOUNDATION.

[00:55:02]

AND WE'RE EXCITED THAT ON THE EARLY PROMISE OF THIS NETWORK, WE'RE ABLE TO CONTINUE THIS WORK FOR ANOTHER THREE AND A HALF YEARS.

WE APPRECIATE SO MUCH HOW THE BOARD AND DISTRICT LEADERSHIP ARE STEWARDS OF A CULTURE OF CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT THAT WE SEE IN YOUR MIDDLE SCHOOLS AND ARE ABLE TO PROVIDE TIME AND SUPPORT FOR THE PROFESSIONAL GROWTH OF YOUR EDUCATORS.

AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO CONTINUING TO WORK WITH YOU ALL.

HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE AT THIS TIME.

THANK YOU. ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? DR. MCFARLAND.

SO MADAM PRESIDENT AND BOARD MEMBERS, I JUST WANT TO JUST KIND OF TAKE YOU BACK TO OUR CONVERSATION WITH LONE STAR GOVERNANCE, AS YOU REMEMBER, WHEN WE WERE HAVING THE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT GOALS GOING FORWARD.

YOU KNOW, WE TALKED A LOT ABOUT EIGHTH GRADE AND MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH AND OTHER SUBJECTS AT THAT LEVEL. AND SO EDUCATE TEXAS HAS BEEN A GREAT PARTNER UP TO THIS POINT.

THEY APPROACHED US LAST YEAR.

AND SO WE ARE DEFINITELY EXCITED ABOUT THAT.

WE FEEL LIKE THE SERVICES AND THE OPPORTUNITIES THAT ARE PROVIDED BY THE NETWORK WILL BE DIRECTLY ALIGNED WITH THE GOALS THAT WE ARE SETTING GOING FORWARD.

SO WE APPRECIATE EDUCATE TEXAS AND MS. KUHNE FOR THE WORK WITH EDUCATE TEXAS AND REALLY FOR THINKING OF CROWLEY ISD.

WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT WHERE WE'RE ABLE TO GO TOGETHER.

WE ARE. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU. WE'LL MOVE NOW TO OUR CONSIDERATION AND POSSIBLE ACTION ITEMS.

[12.0 Consideration and Possible Action Item (s)]

2019-2020 DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN.

DR. MCFARLAND. MADAM PRESIDENT, AND BOARD MEMBERS, AS YOU KNOW, WE ARE BRINGING TONIGHT OUR DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN.

WE'VE SHARED THIS PLAN MULTIPLE TIMES.

WE HAVE KIND OF DELAYED THE ADOPTION OF THE PLAN TOO.

WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE'VE COMPLETED THE STRATEGIC PLAN AND WE'VE DONE THAT NOW.

AND SO TONIGHT YOU'LL BE REVIEWING AND HOPEFULLY TAKING ACTION TO IMPROVE OUR DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN FOR 19-20.

MS. ISABELL IS HERE PREPARED TO ADDRESS THIS ITEM.

MS. ISABELL. THANK YOU.

PRESIDENT DAVIS, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD.

DR. MCFARLAND.

EACH YEAR CROWLEY ISD ADMINISTRATORS USE OUR STRATEGIC PLAN.

OUR GOALS OUR PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVE TO DEVELOP, REVISE AND REVIEW OUR DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN. THIS WORK IS DONE IN COLLABORATION WITH OUR DISTRICT WIDE EDUCATIONAL IMPROVEMENT COMMITTEE DWEIC AND WITH INDIVIDUAL DISTRICT DEPARTMENTS.

WE ARE PLEASED TO BE ABLE TO ALIGN THE DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN TO REFLECT OUR RECENTLY DEVELOPED VISION 2025 STRATEGIC PLAN THAT YOU HAVE COPIES OF A FRAMEWORK IN YOUR HAND NOW. OUR THREE GOALS CAN BE CAPTURED IN OUR NEWLY CREATED ACRONYM TEE.

THRIVING STUDENTS, ENGAGED COMMUNITY AND EMPOWERED STAFF.

ALSO INCLUDED IN THIS ARE THE SUPERINTENDENT STUDENT OUTCOME GOALS, WHICH WE'LL USE AS A FRAMEWORK FOR THE SUPERINTENDENTS EVALUATION.

BY ADDING THESE TO THE DIP WITH FORMATIVE AND SUMMATIVE REVIEWS WE ARE SURE THAT WE WILL MEET OUR GOALS.

WE PRESENT THIS DRAFT OF THE 2019-2020 CROWLEY ISD DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN FOR YOUR REVIEW AND APPROVAL ALONG WITH THE VISION 2025 FRAMEWORK.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS.

COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? DR. MCFARLAND. SO, AGAIN, MADAM PRESIDENT, BOARD MEMBERS, AS YOU ALL KNOW, WE HAVE RECENTLY IDENTIFIED GOALS THROUGH LONE STAR GOVERNANCE ON SATURDAY.

SO WHAT OUR PLAN IS, IS TO TAKE THOSE GOALS, TO UPDATE THE GOALS THAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE IN OUR DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN, AND THEN TO CREATE A REPORTING CYCLE TO WHERE EVERY QUARTER WE ARE ABLE TO COME BACK AND REPORT TO YOU ON THE PROGRESS OF THIS DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN. THIS DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN WILL BE A LIVING DOCUMENT.

AND OUR EXPECTATION IS TO PRESENT TO YOU PROGRESS WE'RE MAKING ON EACH ONE OF THE GOALS.

YOU'LL FIND ALL THAT INFORMATION IN OUR DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN.

WE ALSO WILL USE OUR DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN AS A WAREHOUSE OF OUR MOST CURRENT INFORMATION. SO, FOR EXAMPLE, WE GOT SOME INFORMATION TODAY ABOUT ENROLLMENT IN AP COURSES AND ENROLLMENT IN ADVANCE COURSES.

AND SO WHAT WE'LL DO IS WE'LL UPDATE THE INFORMATION IN A DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN IN REAL TIME. AND SO AS YOU GO THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, WE'LL BE ABLE TO LOOK AT THE DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN AND SEE HOW WE'RE MAKING PROGRESS OR ARE NOT MAKING PROGRESS AND BE ABLE TO MODIFY. BUT AGAIN, OUR GOAL IS TO EVERY QUARTER AT A BOARD MEETING OR A WORKSHOP TO BE ABLE TO PRESENT ON THIS DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN AND TO BE ABLE TO SHARE WITH YOU THE PROGRESS WE'RE MAKING IN RELATION TO OUR GOALS.

THANK YOU. ANY OTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? IT'S AN EXCITING TIME IN CROWLEY ISD.

I JUST WANTED TO ADD THAT.

THIS IS A POSSIBLE ACTION ITEM.

IS THERE A MOTION? I'LL RECOMMEND APPROVAL OF THE 2019-2020 DISTRICT IMPROVEMENT PLAN AS PRESENTED.

WE HAVE A MOTION BY MS. BENTON. IS THERE A SECOND? I'LL SECOND. A SECOND BY MS. HALL. MOVE TO VOTE, PLEASE.

I'M READY THIS TIME.

THE MOTION CARRIES UNANIMOUSLY.

[01:00:02]

OUR NEXT ITEM, 2020-2021 SCHOOL CALENDAR.

DR. MCFARLAND. MADAM PRESIDENT AND BOARD MEMBERS, WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT BRINGING THIS NEXT ITEM FORWARD. IT IS AMAZING THAT WE ARE ALREADY TALKING ABOUT 2020-2021.

AND SO AGAIN, WE ARE MAKING PLANS TO MAKE SURE WE ARE APPROPRIATELY ALIGNED.

AND SO WE HAVE OUR SCHOOL CALENDAR FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.

MR. KIRCHNER. YES.

DR. MCFARLAND. MS. DAVIS, TO MEMBERS OF THE BOARD WHO YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING AT THIS CALENDAR FOR SEVERAL MONTHS NOW, OUR DWEIK, OUR CAMPUS AND DISTRICT ADMINISTRATORS HAVE BEEN REVIEWING IT. IN DECEMBER, WE BROUGHT TWO POSSIBLE DRAFTS THAT ARE DUE AT COMMITTEE, WAS GETTING INPUT FROM CAMPUSES.

AND WE'RE LOOKING AT SOME FACTORS ON.

WE TOOK THAT INPUT AND HAVE A FINAL DRAFT HERE.

WE'LL OPEN IT UP AND JUST TALK ABOUT THE BIG DIFFERENCE AND WHAT WE DECIDED ON THAT.

THAT'LL OPEN UP FULL FAST. BUT IF YOU RECALL, THERE WAS A QUESTION ABOUT A NOVEMBER 6TH PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT DAY VS.

AN EXTRA WORKDAY FOR TEACHERS AND STAFF WHEN THEY RETURNED FROM THE CHRISTMAS BREAK IN JANUARY. WE WERE ABLE TO, BECAUSE OF OUR NUMBER OF INSTRUCTIONAL MINUTES THAT WE OFFER OUR STUDENTS THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR.

WE'RE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH BOTH OF THOSE.

AND SO TO HAVE THAT PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT DAY ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 6TH, AND THEN ALSO PROVIDE A WORKDAY FOR TEACHERS ON WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6TH.

AND SO HAVING YOU HAD OPENED IS ALSO THERE.

AND YOUR EXHIBITS, YOU CAN SEE THAT.

BUT IT COMBINES BOTH OF THOSE DAYS.

HERE WE GO. THIS IS LOOKING PROMISING US ON NOVEMBER 6 HAS THAT FULL DAY, PD DAY.

AND THEN IF YOU GO DOWN TO JANUARY 6, JANUARY 5TH WOULD BE A PD DAY.

JAN. 6 WOULD BE A WORKDAY FOR TEACHERS TO GET READY FOR STUDENTS TO RETURN.

LAST MONTH, THE TRUSTEE.

YES. BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.

ALAS, ANOTHER TRUSTEE ASKED A QUESTION ABOUT INSTRUCTIONAL DAYS AND MINUTES.

THIS CALENDAR INCLUDES 174 INSTRUCTIONAL DAYS FOR STUDENTS.

BUT AS YOU ALL KNOW, THE STATE NOW MEASURES INSTRUCTIONAL TIME IN MINUTES VERSUS DAYS.

AND SO, JUST SO YOU KNOW, THE MINUTES, THE REQUIREMENT AT THE STATE LEVEL IS SEVENTY FIVE THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED MINUTES.

THIS CALENDAR INCLUDES EIGHTY THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED TWELVE INSTRUCTIONAL MINUTES FOR ELEMENTARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL AND SEVENTY EIGHT THOUSAND THIRTY TWO INSTRUCTIONAL MINUTES FOR HIGH SCHOOL. SO ALL OF THOSE GREATLY EXCEED THE STATE MINIMUM OF CENTER FIVE THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED MINUTES. ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CALENDAR? YOU SAID ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FOUR DAYS.

CORRECT. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? DR. MCFARLAND. SO, MADAM PRESIDENT, AND BOARD MEMBERS JUST WANTED TO TALK TO YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE CALENDAR. AGAIN, WHAT WE'RE PRESENTING TO YOU TONIGHT IS, AGAIN, AS WE SAID, A RESULT OF FEEDBACK WE RECEIVED FROM TEACHERS, BUT ALSO THE FEEDBACK WE RECEIVED AT THE CENTRAL OFFICE LEVEL.

WE KNOW THAT THAT NOVEMBER DATE PROVIDES US AN ADDITIONAL PD DAY DURING THE FIRST SEMESTER THAT WAS REALLY WELL UTILIZED THIS YEAR AND WE FELT LIKE WE WANTED TO INCLUDE THAT. AND THEN AGAIN, WE HEARD QUITE A BIT FROM TEACHERS AND FROM DWEIC THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THAT ADDITIONAL DAY COMING BACK FROM THE CHRISTMAS BREAK.

ALSO, I KNOW WITH HOUSE BILL THREE, WE KNOW THAT THERE IS GOING TO BE SOME FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR US FOR EXTENDED DAY DURING THE SUMMER.

WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE, WE'RE STILL REALLY WORKING THROUGH THAT AND REALLY TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT. WE DO KNOW THAT THAT IS AN OPPORTUNITY WITH HOUSE BILL THREE.

SO WE'LL BE INVESTIGATING THAT.

I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT OUR PLAN IS AS RELATES TO THE SUMMER SLIDE AND PROGRAMS DURING THE SUMMER OUR PLAN IS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE INCREASING THE TIME DURING THE SUMMER THAT WE HAVE STUDENTS ENGAGED IN CREATIVE ACTIVITIES.

BUT WHAT THAT WILL LOOK LIKE WILL BE DIFFERENT.

AND AGAIN, WE DEFINITELY KNOW THAT SUMMER IS A CRITICAL TIME.

WE DON'T WANT TO EXTEND SUMMER, BUT WE DO WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT IF WE HAVE KIDS ENGAGED DURING THE SUMMER, THAT THEY'RE ENGAGED IN MEANINGFUL WORK.

SO WE ARE LOOKING AT THAT.

AND SO I WANT TO MAKE SURE, YOU KNOW, THAT WE ARE AWARE OF THE ISSUE WITH SUMMER.

BUT THIS CALENDAR GIVES US THE BEST OPPORTUNITY TO BE SUCCESSFUL, WE BELIEVE.

OKAY. THANK YOU.

ANY OTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? I HAVE A COMMENT JUST THAT THIS IS A HUGE FEAT TO GET ALL OF THIS DONE.

AND I APPRECIATE THE EFFORT THAT WAS DONE TO TAKE ALL OF THOSE DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES INTO ACCOUNT AND THEN TO FIND A WAY TO ACCOMPLISH THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT GOALS AND HONOR THE WORK TIME AND STILL COME IN WAY OVER THE MINIMUM BECAUSE WE KNOW OUR KIDS DON'T DESERVE JUST THE MINIMUM ON THE REQUIRED MINUTES.

AND SO I JUST APPRECIATE THAT WORK THAT WENT INTO THAT FROM ALL THE PARTIES.

AND ONE OTHER THING THAT MAKES THAT POSSIBLE IS THIS PAST YEAR WE LENGTHENED OUR SCHOOL DAY. AND SO THAT HELPS US.

WE HAVE OUR STUDENTS IN CLASS LONGER EACH DAY THAT HELPS WITH SCHEDULING AND INSTRUCTIONAL TIME DURING THOSE EVERY SCHOOL DAY THAT THEY'RE HERE.

SO THAT'S WHAT HAS HELPED US INCREASE OUR MINUTES SIGNIFICANTLY.

OKAY. ANY OTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? THIS ISN'T SO WE HAD. HOW LONG DID WE LENGTHEN THE SCHOOL DAY?

[01:05:02]

SO LAST YEAR ELEMENTARY STARTED AT 7:35 AND ENDED AT 2:50, I BELIEVE ELEMENTARY PRINCIPALS DOES THAT SOUND RIGHT.

OK, SO THIS YEAR WE LENGTHEN THE ELEMENTARY DAY WHAT IS TWENTY FOUR MINUTES EVERY DAY.

MIDDLE SCHOOLS HELP ME WHAT WAS YOUR IN END TIME LAST YEAR.

SO FIFTEEN FIVE MINUTES ON THE FRONT AND TEN MINUTES AT THE BACK.

SO FIFTEEN THERE. ALL RIGHT.

I JUST THINK WE NEED TO HAVE A MORE BROAD DISCUSSION ABOUT HOW WE'RE DOING THIS.

I UNDERSTAND THE BENEFIT OF HAVING ADDITIONAL PLANNING TIME AND EVERYTHING, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE EVERY YEAR. WELL, I KNOW EVERY YEAR WE'VE GOT LESS AND LESS SCHOOL DAYS IN THE CALENDAR. AND I'M NOT CERTAIN THAT THAT'S THE BEST WAY TO GO ABOUT THINGS.

BUT THAT SAID, YOU KNOW, WITH HOUSE BILL THREE, THERE IS ADDITIONAL FUNDING, BUT ONLY AFTER YOU HAVE 180 DAYS.

SO BUT THAT'S ANOTHER CONVERSATION THAT CAN BE HAD LATER.

BUT AT ANY RATE, I CERTAINLY UNDERSTAND THE INSTRUCTIONAL MINUTES.

BUT I THINK WE JUST NEED TO HAVE MORE BROAD CONVERSATION ABOUT THAT.

BECAUSE I'M RAY WE CAN HAVE ADDITIONAL CONVERSATION.

BUT RIGHT NOW, THIS IS AN ACTION ITEM.

DID I SAY THAT ALREADY? POSSIBLE ACTION ITEM. YES, MA'AM.

OK. THIS IS AN ACTION ITEM.

IS THERE A MOTION? I RECOMMEND THE APPROVAL OF THE CALENDAR FOR THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR AS PRESENTED. WE HAVE A MOTION BY MR. GRASSIA. IS THERE A SECOND? I'LL SECOND. A SECOND BY MS. BENTON. MOVE TO VOTE, PLEASE.

CAN I ASK A QUESTION BEFORE I REGISTER MY VOTE? OH, SURE. SO WHEN YOU SAID THAT THERE WAS GONNA BE A DISCUSSION, ARE WE GONNA DISCUSS IT AFTER WE DECIDE ON IT.

OR ARE WE JUST GONNA JUST LIKE APOLOGISE.

WELL, NO. I THINK MR. RAY WANTS TO HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT IT.

AND I DON'T KNOW THAT IT WILL CHANGE ANYTHING THIS YEAR.

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR CHANGES THIS YEAR, MR. RAY? I MEAN, ON THIS CALENDAR OR MOVING FORWARD.

NOT NECESSARILY. YEAH, I THINK IT'S PROBABLY TOO LATE.

YOU KNOW. WELL, AND THERE ARE SOME OTHER.

TO DISCUSS AS WELL. RIGHT.

YEAH. IT'S ALL A PART OF IT.

AND I WOULD'VE EVEN HAVE BROUGHT IT UP.

BUT WE WERE AT ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY EIGHT I THINK LAST YEAR AND NOW WE'VE DROPPED FOUR MORE DAYS OFF THE CALENDAR AND I COULD BE WRONG, BUT IT WAS FROM THE 180 THAT USE TO BE REQUIRED. AND I WAS JUST TAKING ABACK A LITTLE BIT WHEN I REALIZED THAT WE WERE DOWN TO ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FOUR.

WELL, AND I'M CERTAINLY NOT THE EXPERT HERE, BUT I THINK MR. KIRCHNER DID SAY THAT WE ADDED ADDITIONAL MINUTES AND THAT THE STATE IS CALCULATING IT NOW BY MINUTES AND WE ADDED THE TWENTY MINUTES TO ELEMENTARY AND FIFTEEN TO MIDDLE.

SO WE'RE WELL OVER THE REQUIRED MINUTES BY THE STATE.

I UNDERSTAND SO THAT MAY HAVE BROUGHT THAT NUMBER DOWN.

MAYBE. IT DID I KNOW BUT I UNDERSTAND.

BUT YES.

SO I JUST HAD A QUESTION.

I WAS NOT HERE AT THE LAST MEETING SO FORGIVE ME IF I HAVE QUESTIONS, BUT I DID WANT TO KNOW WHAT HE MEANT ABOUT THE HB3 AND DR.

MCFARLAND IF YOU COULD SPEAK TO THE 80 DAY THING.

I'M AN EDUCATOR SO ALL DOWN FOR LESS DAYS ON THE CALENDAR, SO I GET IT.

BUT I JUST WANT TO UNDERSTAND THE PHYSICAL ASPECT OF IT OR THE IMPLICATIONS.

NOT THAT WE WERE AT 180 ANYWAY.

SO LET ME MAKE SURE I UNDERSTAND YOUR QUESTION.

SO OF COURSE, WE MOVED AWAY FROM SEVERAL YEARS AGO.

WE MOVED AWAY FROM DAYS TO MINUTES.

AND SO WE MADE A DECISION LAST YEAR TO INCREASE THE MINUTES SO THAT TEACHERS WOULD HAVE ADDITIONAL TIME TO PLAN DURING THE DAY.

SO THAT WAS THE PURPOSE OF US ADDING THE MINUTES SO THAT WE CAN GET PLANNING TIME, COMMON PLANNING TIME ON EVERY CAMPUS.

AND SO WE EXTENDED THE DAY WHICH IN BECAUSE OF HOW WE RUN OUR BUSES.

I MEAN, FROM A LOGISTICAL STANDPOINT, BECAUSE OF HOW WE RUN OUR BUSES, WE HAD TO STAGGER TIMES. SO WE ADDED SOME YOU KNOW, WE ADDED A LITTLE BIT IN EACH CAMPUS.

BUT THE STATE LAW BASICALLY SAYS IT'S A SEVENTY FOUR THOUSAND MINUTES.

AND SO HOUSE BILL THREE ALLOWS US TO ACTUALLY BE ABLE TO TO GET ADDITIONAL FUNDING IF WE'RE OVER 180 DAYS.

NOW THAT THE INTERPRETATION OF WHAT IT REALLY MEANS, WHETHER THAT MEANS WHETHER WE CAN LOOK AT THE DAYS AND CHANGE IT FROM THE DAYS TO THE MINUTES.

THOSE ARE CONVERSATIONS RIGHT NOW NO ONE REALLY KNOWS HOW HOUSE BILL THREE IS GONNA BE IMPLEMENTED IN THE SUMMER.

[01:10:01]

AND SO MY THOUGHT PROCESS WAS THAT WE MOVE FORWARD WITH WHAT WE KNOW RIGHT NOW.

AND THEN WE HAVE CONVERSATIONS, YOU KNOW, AS MR. RAY, WE HAVE CONVERSATIONS AND WE SEE HOW OTHER DISTRICTS ARE ADDRESSING IT, BECAUSE VERY FEW DISTRICTS THAT I'M AWARE OF HAVE A HUNDRED AND EIGHTY DAYS AT THIS POINT BECAUSE MOST DISTRICTS TRANSLATE IT TO THE MINUTES.

AND SO WE KNOW THAT HOUSE BILL 3 IS OUT THERE AND WE KNOW THAT THERE'S GONNA BE SOME KIND OF CHANGES TO THE FUNDING FORMULA.

BUT WHAT THAT'S GOING TO BE, WE DON'T KNOW THAT YET BECAUSE, YOU KNOW RULES ARE BE ING MADE OR IMPLEMENTATION IS OCCURRING.

BUT THE OTHER PIECES, I THINK THE PURPOSE FOR THE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY DAYS THAT WE ALL KNOW THAT WHEN STUDENTS ARE NOT IN SCHOOL, THEY LOSE GROUND.

AND SO WHAT WE'RE SAYING IS THAT ALTHOUGH WE MAY ONLY HAVE A HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FOUR, ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FOUR DAYS.

WHAT WE'RE SAYING IS THAT FOR THOSE STUDENTS WHO NEED IT AND FOR INNOVATIVE PROGRAMS AND OTHER THINGS LIKE THAT, WE'LL STILL CREATE LEARNING ACTIVITIES DURING THE SUMMER MORE THAN WHAT WE'VE HAD IN THE PAST.

WE'LL LOOK AT OUTSIDE FUNDING IN ORDER TO DO THAT.

SO IT MAY NOT BE STATE FUNDING THAT WE'RE RELYING ON, BUT WE DO KNOW THAT WE CAN CREATE A SUMMER PROGRAM ALGEBRA ACADEMY IS ONE OF THOSE THAT WE HOPE WITH THIS TX NDI GRANT AND OTHERS, THAT WE COULD BE ABLE TO SUPPORT.

SO WHAT I'M SAYING IS THERE IS AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT THAT WE NEED TO HAVE KIDS IN SCHOOL MORE DAYS. HOWEVER, WE KNOW THAT THERE IS A GROUP OF STUDENTS THAT IT'S EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FOR AND OTHERS MAYBE NOT.

AND SO WE'LL BE WORKING THROUGH THAT.

BUT WE THINK THAT THIS WILL GIVE US WHAT WE NEED AND MEET STATE LAW AND ALL THAT.

THANK YOU.

OK. OTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? AND I JUST WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE HOUSE BILL THREE ALSO HAS QUITE A FEW PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT REQUIREMENTS THAT WERE ADDED ON AND PROVIDING THOSE DAYS WITHIN OUR CALENDAR WHERE WE COULD ACCOMPLISH THOSE GOALS IS ALSO A REALLY RESPONSIBLE ACT AS WELL. THANK YOU.

ANY OTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? WE WILL MOVE NOW TO OUR FUTURE ACTION ITEMS. WELL, MINE SKIPPED.

YEAH, MINE.

WE COULD VOTE BY A SHOW OF HANDS IF WE NEEDED TO FOR THIS ITEM.

I STILL RECOMMEND. I HAVE GRASSIA AND BENTON.

GRASSIA A MOTION BENTON A SECOND.

DO WE HAVE. WE HAD A MOTION.

DID WE HAVE A SECOND.

YES. AND A SECOND? OK. CAN WE VOTE BY A SHOW OF HANDS.

ALL IN FAVOR. MO TION CARRIES UNANIMOUSLY.

THANK YOU. NOW TO A FUTURE ACTION ITEMS.

[13.0 Future Action Item(s)]

THE FIRST ITEM WAIVER FOR STAFF DEVELOPMENT.

DR. MCFARLAND.

MADAM PRESIDENT AND BOARD MEMBERS MR. KIRCHNER IS PREPARED TO ADDRESS THIS ITEM.

MR. KIRCHNER. THANK YOU, DR. MCFARLAND.

MS. DAVIS AND MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, THIS IS A FUTURE ACTION ITEM.

AND EVERY YEAR THE TEA OPENS THESE APPLICATIONS FOR WAIVERS FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT.

THEY ALLOW UP TO 2100 TOTAL WAIVER MINUTES.

PREVIOUSLY WAS DAYS, BUT NOW IT'S A MINUTE WAIVER AND IT WOULD BE APPLICABLE FOR THE 2021 SCHOOL YEAR BECAUSE THE CALENDAR THAT WAS JUST APPROVED BY THE BOARD EXCEEDS THE MINIMUM REQUIREMENT OF SEVENTY FIVE THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED MINUTES.

WE DO NOT ANTICIPATE NEEDING THIS WAIVER, BUT WE LIKE TO HAVE IT ON HAND JUST IN CASE SOMETHING COMES UP OR WE NEED ADDITIONAL PD TIME.

AND SO THIS WOULD BE A FUTURE ACTION ITEM NEXT MONTH THAT WE BRING BACK TO YOU FOR CONSIDERATION IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT IT.

OKAY. ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? OK. THE NEXT FUTURE ITEM 2020-2021 BUDGET TIMELINE.

DR. MCFARLAND. MADAM PRESIDENT, AND BOARD MEMBERS, AS YOU ALL KNOW, WE ARE AT THE TIME OF THE YEAR WHERE WE WILL BEGIN TO PREPARE FINANCIALLY FOR THE 20-21 SCHOOL YEAR.

WE WILL DEFINITELY START THAT PROCESS TONIGHT, WE WANTED TO JUST GIVE YOU AN OVERVIEW OF OUR TIMELINE AND LET YOU KNOW THAT WE ARE MAKING THOSE PLANS.

THANK YOU DR.

MCFARLAND. MS. DAVIS, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD.

THIS IS OUR REALLY QUICK REVIEW OF THE TIMELINE GOING FORWARD IN THE SPRING.

I'VE ALREADY STARTED MEETING WITH H.R.

AND DR. KOHLER AND SO IN FEBRUARY WE WILL CONTINUE THOSE MEETINGS, AS WELL AS STARTING TO MEET WITH THE FINANCE COMMITTEE, PRINCIPALS, DEPARTMENT HEADS, BUDGET MANAGERS.

WE'LL CONTINUE THAT PROCESS THROUGHOUT MARCH AND APRIL.

IN MAY OR JUNE WE WILL HAVE A BUDGET WORKSHOP EITHER WAY IN MAY WE PRESENT THE PRELIMINARY BUDGETS TO YOU AT A REGULAR BOARD MEETING.

AND THEN IN JUNE, WE WILL PRESENT THE BUDGET AGAIN FOR YOUR APPROVAL AT THE JUNE BOARD

[01:15:01]

MEETING. THAT'S ALL I HAVE LEFT UNLESS THERE ARE QUESTIONS.

ALSO, IN ADDITION, BOARD, AS YOU KNOW, WE WILL BE SUBMITTING SURVEYS TO YOU TO HELP US TO PRIORITIZE AGAIN.

NORMALLY THAT BUDGET SURVEY THAT WILL GO TO THE BOARD WILL OCCUR IN MARCH.

AND THEN ALSO IN APRIL, WE'LL ALSO SENDING THE SAME BUDGET SURVEY TO SET PRIORITIES WELL WE WILL BE SUBMITTING THAT SURVEY TO DISTRICT PERSONNEL WE'LL HAVE IT AVAILABLE ONLINE FOR PARENTS AND OTHERS.

AND SO IF YOU REMEMBER BEFORE WE SET THOSE PRIORITIES AND WE'LL GET THAT DONE IN MARCH OR EARLY APRIL, AND THEN AGAIN, WE'LL BE MEETING WITH THE FINANCE TEAM FROM THE BOARD OF THE FINANCE COMMITTEE, FROM THE BOARD ALSO TO GET A REAL CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF PRIORITIES GOING FORWARD. OKAY.

COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? THANK YOU, MS. ADRIAN. OK.

OUR FINAL FUTURE ITEM 2020 2021 STAFFING TIME LINE.

DR. MCFARLAND. MADAM PRESIDENT, AND BOARD MEMBERS, AS YOU ALL KNOW, OUR STAFFING.

WHEN WE TALK ABOUT OUR BUDGET.

REALLY ALMOST 85 TO 90 PERCENT OF OUR BUDGET IS MADE UP IN STAFFING.

AND SO WE BELIEVE THAT ONE OF THE MAIN TOOLS THAT WE HAVE TO CONTROL OUR BUDGET TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE OPERATING IN ALIGNMENT WITH OUR BUDGET IS OUR STAFFING GUIDELINES.

SO WE HAVE DR. KOHLER HERE PREPARED TO ADDRESS THE ITEM RELATIVE TO STAFFING TIME.

DR. KOHLER. THANK YOU, DR. MCFARLAND.

MS. DAVIS, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, AS YOU ALL HAVE TALKED ABOUT, WE'RE ALREADY REALLY IN PREPARATION FOR THE 20-21 SCHOOL YEAR.

AND STAFFING IS A HUGE COMPONENT OF THAT.

SO I JUST WANTED TO SHARE A QUICK UPDATE OF SOME OF THE MAJOR ACTIVITIES THAT WE'RE WORKING ON IN HR AND EMPLOYEE SERVICES AS WE PREPARE FOR THAT STAFFING.

SO FEBRUARY, WHICH IS LIKE NOW.

RIGHT. WE 'VE BEEN WORKING ON THE STAFFING FOR RICHARD ALLIE MIDDLE SCHOOL.

I'VE SHARED IN SOME OF OUR BOARD UPDATES THAT WE HAVE THE SIXTH GRADE, THE TEACHER ASSIGNMENTS THAT ARE MOVING TO THE MIDDLE SCHOOL MADE.

AND WE'VE JUST COMPLETED THE CORE CONTENT TEACHING ASSIGNMENTS FOR SEVENTH AND EIGHTH GRADE TEACHERS. SO WE'VE GOT THOSE DONE.

AND OUR NEXT THING OUR NEXT ASSIGNMENTS THAT WE'LL BE WORKING ON ARE ELECTIVES.

AND TO DO THAT, WE WILL BE PULLING THE COURSE REQUESTS.

SO OUR STUDENTS ARE IN THE PROCESS OF SELECTING THEIR COURSES FOR NEXT YEAR SO THAT WE CAN ACCURATELY KNOW HOW MANY KIDS ARE GOING TO TAKE CHOIR AND HOW MANY ARE GOING TO TAKE BAND AND ART. AS SOON AS WE HAVE THOSE, WE WILL WORK TO STAFF THE ELECTIVES OFF OF THOSE SIMPLE TALLIES. AND IN ADDITION TO STAFFING, RICHARD ALLIE WILL BE WORKING ON COMPLETING PROJECTION TEMPLATES FOR EVERY CAMPUS.

AND THAT LOOKS AT THE ELEMENTARY.

THAT'S A ROLL UP WE'RE LOOKING AT HOW MANY STUDENTS WE HAVE IN SECOND GRADE AT A CAMPUS AND THOSE WILL BE OUR THIRD GRADERS AND SO ON.

AND THEN AS I MENTIONED EARLIER WHEN WE GET TO THE SECONDARY.

IT'S ALL BASED ON COURSE REQUESTS.

HOW MANY STUDENTS ARE TAKING ALGEBRA 1.

HOW MANY STUDENTS ARE TAKING BIOLOGY AND SO FORTH.

ONCE WE HAVE COMPLETED THE TEMPLATES FOR EACH OF THE CAMPUSES, WE BRING THE PRINCIPALS IN AND WE SIT WITH THEM AND SCHOOL LEADERSHIP AND GO OVER THOSE AND MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE ALL IN AGREEMENT ABOUT WHAT THOSE NEEDS LOOK LIKE AT THE CAMPUS.

AND WE COMPILE ALL OF THAT INTO A FORECAST FOR STAFFING FOR 20-21.

MS. ADRIAN AND HER TEAM ANXIOUSLY ARE WAITING FOR THAT BECAUSE IT DOES IMPACT, THE GREATEST PART OF THE BUDGET IS PERSONNEL AND SALARIES.

THE ITEM THAT IS A FUTURE ACTION ITEM COMES TO YOU ALL IN MARCH.

OUR ADMINISTRATIVE AND PROFESSIONAL STAFF CONTRACT RENEWALS.

THE MAJORITY OF THOSE COME TO YOU IN MARCH.

OCCASIONALLY WE HAVE A FEW THAT COME IN APRIL IF WE HAVE TEACHERS WAITING ON TEST RESULTS OR THOSE KINDS OF THINGS.

BUT YOU CAN ANTICIPATE THE MARCH BOARD MEETING BOTH ADMINISTRATIVE AND PROFESSIONAL STAFF CONTRACTS COMING FOR YOUR APPROVAL.

AND THEN IN APRIL AND MAY, WE'RE RECRUITING ALL OF THIS TIME OF THE YEAR.

BUT I DID WANT TO POINT OUT THAT OUR C ISD JOB FAIR HAS BEEN SCHEDULED FOR APRIL THE 4TH.

THANK YOU TO MS. NINTH GRADE CAMPUS. THAT LOCATION WORKS REALLY WELL FOR US.

SO WE ARE PLANNING FOR THAT EVENT.

AND THEN, LIKE I SAID, THE ONGOING RECRUITING EVENTS WE ARE REGISTERED FOR SO FAR OVER 20 RECRUITING EVENTS THIS SPRING.

I WANT TO THANK MR. MICHAEL WILLIAMS FOR BEING THE CHAMPION FOR RECRUITING.

AND HE WORKS REALLY WELL WITH OTHER CENTRAL OFFICE COLLEAGUES AND OUR CAMPUS ADMINISTRATORS TO GET THOSE TEAMS OF FOLKS OUT THERE AT THOSE RECRUITING EVENTS SO WE CAN FIND THE BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST AND BRING THEM TO CROWLEY ISD.

SO I APPRECIATE THE TIME.

AND IF YOU ALL HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, I'D BE HAPPY TO ANSWER.

COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS.

[01:20:02]

OKAY. THANK YOU, DR.

KOHLER. THANK YOU. OH.

MR. RAY. OK.

AND BEFORE WE ADJOURN, MR. RAY HAS SOMETHING HE WANTS TO SAY.

I JUST WANTED TO SAY, I MEAN, ALL THE WORK THAT WAS PUT INTO ALL THESE POSTERS AND EVERYTHING IN HERE AND ALL OF WE GOT SCARFS AND BUNDT CAKES AND ALL THESE THINGS IN THE BACK THAT WE HAVEN'T EVEN GOTTEN INTO.

AND WE REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

I KNOW WE ALL DO.

I THINK I CAN SPEAK FOR THE ENTIRE BOARD ON THAT.

AND ALL, YOU KNOW, AND DRIVING DOWN THE STREET AND SEEING, YOU KNOW, WE LOVE OUR SCHOOL BOARD ON THE NINTH GRADE MARQUEE AND THE OTHERS.

IT'S REALLY THINK. AND I VERY MUCH APPRECIATE IT.
