MR. KIRCHNER, DO WE HAVE ANYONE SIGNED UP FOR OPEN FORUM?

>> THANK YOU. WE WILL MOVE NOW TO OUR REPORT ITEMS,

[3.0 Report Item(s) / Presentation(s)]

AT POINT ONE, "NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING TO DISCUSS BUDGET AND PROPOSED TAX RATE". DR. MCFARLAND?

>> MADAM PRESIDENT AND BOARD MEMBERS, AS YOU KNOW, WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF THE BUDGET DEVELOPMENT PROCESS, AND SO WE'D LIKE TO JUST BRING TO YOU A QUICK UPDATE OF WHERE WE ARE WITH THE BUDGET PROCESS.

WE KNOW THINGS ARE CHANGING, TIMES ARE UNCERTAIN, BUT WE ARE MAKING DECISIONS BASED ON INFORMATION WE HAVE.

WE HAVE MS. ADRIAN HERE PREPARED TO ADDRESS THIS ITEM. MS. ADRIAN?

>> YOU'RE ON MUTE.

>> I AM SORRY.

THANK YOU, DR. MCFARLAND, MS. DAVIS, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD.

THIS IS JUST A QUICK REPORT.

REALLY IT'S ADDRESSING THE NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING TO DISCUSS THE BUDGET AND PROPOSED TAX RATE, AND WE'LL BRING THAT UP IN JUST A SECOND.

BUT THE POWERPOINT, YOU'VE SEEN THIS A COUPLE OF TIMES, AGAIN JUST EXPLAINING ON SLIDE NUMBER TWO IS HOW WE WILL BE CALCULATING OUR TAX RATE.

BUT THIS IS THE MAXIMUM TAX RATE ALLOWED, WOULD BE A $1.547 FOR THE GENERAL OPERATING TAX RATE AND THEN 50 CENTS FOR DEBT SERVICE, GIVING US $1.5547 AS OUR MAXIMUM TAX RATE.

HOWEVER, AGAIN, THIS IS JUST FOR TONIGHT.

THIS IS HOW WE'RE CALCULATING THIS TO PUT IN THE NOTICE THAT WE WILL HAVE TO PUBLISH IN THE STAR-TELEGRAM.

WE WILL BE ADVERTISING THE NOTICE TO HAVE OUR MEETING ON JUNE 25TH AT 6:00 O'CLOCK, AND I JUST WANTED TO SHOW YOU THAT THIS IS HOW WE'RE CALCULATING THE TAX RATE.

IT WILL BE LOWER THAN THAT THOUGH BECAUSE OF HOUSE BILL 3.

UNFORTUNATELY, WE WILL NOT KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THAT WILL BE UNTIL JULY AND WE HAVE TO APPROVE THE BUDGET IN JUNE.

THAT'S JUST A RECAP OF HOUSE BILL 3.

THE NEXT SLIDE SHOWS US A LITTLE MORE INFORMATION.

WE FOUND OUT THIS WEEK THAT IT'S CALLED THE CARES ACT.

THERE'S THE CARES ACT, ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL EMERGENCY RELIEF, WHICH IS ESSER.

CURRENTLY WE'RE PROJECTED TO RECEIVE $2-AND-A-HALF MILLION.

IT'S BASED ON OUR TITLE I NUMBERS, AND THERE'S AN APPLICATION PROCESS SIMILAR TO WHAT WE DO FOR TITLE I.

THE CARES ACT CORONAVIRUS RELIEF FUND, THE CRF, IS STRUCTURED TO COVER UP TO 75 PERCENT OF THE COSTS INCURRED, BUT ONLY THROUGH MAY 20TH.

SO WE'RE GATHERING THOSE COSTS TO TRY TO SUBMIT THAT FOR REIMBURSEMENT.

TITLE VIII OF DIVISION B DOES NOT REALLY PERTAIN TO CISD, AND THEN OF COURSE, FEMA'S OUT THERE AS WELL.

[00:05:02]

IF WE CAN APPLY FOR SOME OF THE REIMBURSEMENTS THROUGH THE CRF GRANT, WE CANNOT APPLY OBVIOUSLY FOR THE SAME THINGS THROUGH THE FEMA GRANT, BUT WE'LL BE GATHERING ALL THIS INFORMATION AND TRYING TO GET REIMBURSEMENT ON TOP OF THAT $2-AND-A-HALF MILLION TO TRY TO CUT SOME OF OUR COSTS FOR THE '19/'20 YEAR, AS WELL AS GOING INTO THE '20/'21 YEAR.

THE PRELIMINARY BUDGET FOR THE '20/'21 YEAR IS STILL SHOWING ALMOST A $7 MILLION DEFICIT, BUT WE'RE WORKING REALLY HARD DOTTING OUR IS AND CROSSING OUR TS, TO PUT SOME REALLY GOOD NUMBERS TOGETHER FOR US TO USE FOR OUR BUDGET WORKSHOP NEXT WEEK ON JUNE 4TH.

FOR THE '19/'20, THE BUDGET PROJECTIONS, CURRENTLY I'M SHOWING ALMOST $152 MILLION OF PROJECTED REVENUE BUT 152.9 MILLION FOR EXPENDITURES.

AGAIN, SOME OF THOSE EXPENDITURES ARE SOME OF THE EXPENDITURES THAT WE COULD GET REIMBURSED FOR, BUT RIGHT NOW THEN THAT'S SHOWING A CHANGE TO THE FUND BALANCE OF A SHORTFALL OF $1 MILLION.

BUT I'M HOPING TO RECODE A LOT OF THOSE EXPENDITURES AND GET FEDERAL REIMBURSEMENT INSTEAD.

THEN THE NEXT SLIDE IS JUST SHOWING THAT JUNE 4TH WE'LL BE BACK TO BRING A BUDGET WORKSHOP TO YOU, AND THEN OF COURSE, APPROVE THE BUDGET ON JUNE 25TH.

THAT IS MY POWERPOINT FOR THE PRESENTATION.

ANTHONY, CAN YOU PULL UP THE NOTICE OF THE FORM 5280? I HOPE I ATTACHED IT.

>> YES. WE HAD THAT IN ESB.

TRUSTEES YOU CAN ALSO SEE THAT IN YOUR EXHIBIT, BUT I'LL PULL THAT UP FOR EVERYONE TO SEE RIGHT NOW.

>> I'M SORRY, ANTHONY.

>>YOU'RE FINE. WE'VE GOT IT RIGHT HERE.

>> BASICALLY ALL THIS IS THE ADVERTISEMENT THAT WILL BE IN THE FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM JUST STATING THAT OUR MEETING WILL TAKE PLACE JUNE 25TH AT 6:00 O'CLOCK AND THE TAX RATE IS LISTED AT $1.547 AND THEN THE 50 CENTS.

SO ALL THAT IS JUST BRINGING THIS TO YOU SO YOU'RE AWARE THAT THIS WILL BE PUBLISHED IN THE PAPER IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS ADVERTISING OUR BUDGET WORKSHOP FOR THE BUDGET APPROVAL ON JUNE 25TH.

IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS, I'LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER THEM.

>> ARE THERE ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? THANK YOU, MS. ADRIAN.

>> THANK YOU.

>> WE'LL MOVE NOW TO ITEM 3.2 REPORT, "HEALTH SERVICES UPDATE." DR. MCFARLAND?

>> MADAM PRESIDENT AND BOARD MEMBERS, AS WE KNOW HEALTH SERVICES IS ALWAYS CRITICAL FOR US, BUT IT'S DEFINITELY CRITICAL IN THE MIDST OF THE PANDEMIC.

WHAT WE THOUGHT WE WOULD DO IS TAKE THIS TIME TO JUST GIVE YOU AN OVERVIEW OF OUR HEALTH SERVICES, THE HEALTH SERVICES THAT WE'RE PROVIDING TO OUR KIDS, AS WELL AS HEALTH SERVICES THAT ARE BEING PROVIDED ON A DAILY BASIS TO STUDENTS AS WELL.

WE KNOW THAT AS WE GO THROUGH OUR BUDGET PROCESS, NOW IS THE TIME FOR US TO CONSIDER ANY POTENTIAL INCREASES AS IT RELATES TO HEALTH SERVICES.

SO WE'D LIKED TO, TONIGHT, JUST REALLY GIVE YOU A OVERVIEW OF WHERE WE CURRENTLY ARE, TO GIVE US A LEVEL SET OF WHERE WE WILL BE ABLE TO NAVIGATE FROM IF WE DECIDE TO INCREASE.

TONIGHT WE HAVE OUR HEALTH SERVICES UPDATE.

I BELIEVE THAT MR. SWANN AND MS. VANCAMPEN WILL BE LEADING US IN THIS SECTION.

MR. SWANN.

>> YES, SIR. THANK YOU, DR MCFARLAND.

GOOD EVENING, MADAM PRESIDENT, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, DR MCFARLAND.

TONIGHT, WE'RE HERE TO TALK ABOUT JPS SCHOOL-BASED HEALTH CENTERS LOCATED AROUND TARRANT COUNTY.

AT THIS TIME, ALL SCHOOL-BASED HEALTH CENTERS ARE CLOSED BY JPS AND UNDER CONSOLIDATION.

NUMBER TWO, WORKING ON PHASE ONE PLAN TO ESTABLISH 25 PERCENT CAPACITY FOR SERVICES. THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE DOING.

NUMBER THREE, THE GOAL'S TO OPEN ALL CLINICS BEFORE SCHOOLS START.

NUMBER FOUR, THE TWO CLOSEST JPS PRIMARY CLINICS REMAIN OPEN FOR CISD COMMUNITIES.

ONE OF THE THINGS HERE I'D LIKE TO ALSO SHARE WITH YOU GUYS IS THAT AT THE CISD WEB PAGE, WE ACTUALLY HAVE AN ONLINE SUPPORT CENTER WHICH IS ACTUALLY SPONSORED BY HEALTH RESOURCES.

IF YOU WERE TO GO TO THAT PARTICULAR SITE, YOU'LL ACTUALLY NOTICE IF YOU CLICK ON JPS HEALTH CLINICS, YOU'LL SEE WITH OUR SERVICES BEING PROVIDED TO OUR STUDENTS AND STAKEHOLDERS HERE IN CROWLEY ISD, THERE ARE ACTUALLY TWO LOCATIONS THAT ARE SERVING OUR STUDENTS AND HAVE BEEN SINCE THE CLOSURE OF SCHOOLS BEGINNING AROUND MARCH THE 16TH.

[00:10:05]

WE HAVE TWO LOCATIONS THAT ARE CLOSEST TO US.

THAT'S GOING TO BE ONE THAT'S IN A STOP SIX AREA, AND THE MAIN LOCATION ON MAIN STREET IN FORT WORTH.

THAT'S THE JPS CLINIC THERE.

WHAT YOU'LL ALSO NOTICE, AGAIN, IS THAT THERE ARE GOING TO BE ADDITIONAL CENTERS THAT YOU CAN SEE WHERE OUR STAKEHOLDERS CAN COMMUNICATE WITH BY TELEPHONE, AND ALSO THERE'S A TRANSPORTATION MOTIVE FOR THOSE TO SO WE HAVE BEEN PROVIDING SERVICES AND SUPPORT TO THOSE STUDENTS SINCE THE INCEPTION OF THE COVID-19.

FINALLY, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT YOU WOULD WANT TO KNOW AS WELL IS THAT SINCE MARCH, WE HAD 96 CLINIC VISITS FROM OUR COMMUNITY HERE IN CROWLEY ISD.

IN APRIL, WE'VE HAD 61 TELEHEALTH-

>> -PARTICIPATIONS WITH OUR COMMUNITY-

>> -AND THAT-

>> -PARTICULAR CENTER. IN MAY, WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED THAT DATA YET BECAUSE WE'RE STILL IN THE MONTH OF MAY.

AS YOU KNOW TODAY IS MAY THE 28TH, WHICH IS ALSO THE LAST DAY OF INSTRUCTION FOR OUR STUDENTS HERE IN CROWLEY ISD, AND WITH THAT BEING SAID, THAT'S WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH OUR JPS SCHOOL-BASED HEALTH SERVICE BEHIND PARKWAY ELEMENTARY.

AS YOU KNOW, AGAIN, IT'S CLOSED, BUT WE'RE STILL SERVING STUDENTS ALL OVER-

>> -TARRANT COUNTY, ALL ALONG WITH CROWLEY ISD.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> THANK YOU, MR SWANN.

ARE THERE ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS?

>> DOES THAT CONCLUDE THE REPORT, MR SWANN?

>> NO, MA'AM. YES, MA'AM. FOR ME, I'LL NOW SEGUE TO MS. VANCAMPEN SO SHE CAN TALK ABOUT WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH OUR CAMPUS CLINIC STAFF AND WHAT THEY'RE DOING RIGHT NOW TO PROVIDE SUPPORT TO OUR STUDENTS HERE.

>> GOOD EVENING, MADAM PRESIDENT, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD AND DR MCFARLAND.

IT IS MY PRIVILEGE TO SHARE WITH YOU ALL OUR CISD HEALTH SERVICE UPDATE, WHICH INCLUDES OUR CURRENT STAFFING STRUCTURE AND TWO ADDITIONAL FUTURE STAFFING OPTIONS.

>> CURRENTLY, OUR MODEL-

>> -IS 10 REGISTERED NURSES, SIX MEDICAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS, 18 CLINIC AIDES FOR A TOTAL OF 34 FTES SERVING 24 CAMPUSES.

CURRENTLY OUR POD STRUCTURE IS COMPRISED OF ONE RN, THE 2-3 MEDICAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS, AND CLINIC AIDES, ONE PER CAMPUS.

>> MS VANCAMPEN?

>> YES.

>> MS VANCAMPEN, COULD YOU HOLD ON FOR A SECOND? WOULD EVERYONE PLEASE MUTE YOUR PHONES SO THAT WE CAN CLEARLY HEAR THE PRESENTATION? MS. VANCAMPEN, IF YOU WOULD JUST GO BACK TO WHATEVER SLIDE YOU WERE ON AND JUST START FROM THERE.

IT'S IMPORTANT INFORMATION.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYBODY HEARS IT, SO IF EVERYBODY JUST TAKE A SECOND TO MUTE YOUR PHONE AND THAT WAY WE CAN ACTUALLY HEAR THE PRESENTATION.

>> I'LL JUST START, SIR, WITH OUR CURRENT STAFFING MODEL.

>> YES, THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

>> WE HAVE 10 REGISTERED NURSES, SIX MEDICAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS, AND 18 CLINIC AIDES FOR A TOTAL OF 34 FTES SERVING 24 CAMPUSES.

THIS CURRENT POD STRUCTURE IS COMPRISED OF ONE RN AND 2-3 MEDICAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS AND/OR CLINIC AIDES, ONE PER CAMPUS.

CURRENTLY, THE CLC IS NOT STAFFED.

FOR FUTURE STAFFING, WE PRESENT OPTION ONE, A REGISTERED NURSE AT EVERY CAMPUS.

THIS WOULD GIVE OUR DISTRICT 24 RNS, SEVEN MEDICAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS AND 18 CLINIC AIDES FOR A TOTAL 49 FTES SERVING 25 CAMPUSES.

THIS MODEL ALLOWS FOR THE CLC TO HAVE A DEDICATED CLINIC PERSON.

POD STRUCTURE WOULD BE TWO PERSONS, AN RN AND A MEDICAL HEALTH PROFESSIONAL OR CLINIC AIDE AT EACH CAMPUS.

THIS WOULD MEET THE CDC GUIDELINES FOR CONTACT TRACING, STAFFING CONSIDERATIONS FOR SICK AND WELL ROOMS, AS WELL AS STUDENT ASSESSMENTS.

WE WOULD ALSO, WITH OPTION ONE, BE ABLE TO SHARE THE CLINIC AIDES AND MEDICAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS TO SERVE IN DUAL ROLES TO ASSIST WITH FUTURE TRANSPORTATION NEEDS.

A MEDICAL HEALTH PROFESSIONAL AT EVERY CAMPUS WITH THE ADDITION OF THREE RNS TO ASSIST WITH THE EXTRA DEMANDS FOR COVID-19.

THIS WOULD GIVE US 13 RNS IN THE DISTRICT, 19 MEDICAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS AND 18 AIDES FOR A TOTAL OF 50 FTES TO SERVICE 25 CAMPUSES.

THIS MODEL WOULD ALSO MEET THE GUIDELINES FOR CDC WITH REGARDS TO CONTACT TRACING,

[00:15:04]

STAFFING CONSIDERATIONS FOR SICK AND WELL ROOMS, AS WELL AS STUDENT ASSESSMENTS.

THIS POD STRUCTURE WOULD BE AN RN, TWO LVNS, AND AN AIDE TO FLOAT BETWEEN DIFFERENT CAMPUSES.

THIS MODEL WOULD ALSO ALLOW FOR STAFF TO SERVE DUAL ROLE TO ASSIST WITH FUTURE TRANSPORTATION NEEDS.

BOTH OF THESE OPTIONS ARE ON THE TABLE, BUT WE WOULD LIKE TO BRING A HYBRID OF THE TWO BACK TO THE BOARD AT SOME POINT IN THE FUTURE THAT WOULD WORK FOR EVERY CAMPUS.

THANK YOU. DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? I HAVE A QUESTION, MS VANCAMPEN.

>> YES, MA'AM.

>> CURRENTLY, DO-

>> -WE HAVE A "DEALTH" PERSON AT EACH CAMPUS?

>> DO WE HAVE A?

>> A DEDICATED HEALTH PERSON, EITHER AN AIDE OR A LVN OR A RN AT EACH CAMPUS?

>> YES, WE DO, JUST-

>> -EXCEPT FOR CLC.

WE DO NOT HAVE ONE AT THE CLC.

>> OF THE HOW MANY CAMPUSES IS EACH RN RESPONSIBLE FOR?

>> THE RNS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR 2-3 CAMPUSES.

OUR HIGH SCHOOLS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR 16-2,400 STUDENTS, EACH NURSE.

>> THEN OTHER REGISTERED NURSES ARE SHARED WITH OTHER CAMPUSES?

>> YEAH. SO WE'LL HAVE ONE NURSE TO 2-3 CAMPUSES.

FOR EXAMPLE, WE HAVE ONE NURSE SHARED BETWEEN DEER CREEK, BESS RACE, AND POYNTER ELEMENTARIES.

>> THANK YOU. ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR

>> YES.

>>

>> YES. MS. DAVIS, YOU'RE BREAKING UP A LOT, AND I THINK IF YOU TURN OFF YOUR VIDEO, IT MIGHT HELP A LITTLE BIT.

BUT IN ANY CASE, THANK YOU MISTY FOR SHARING THIS INFORMATION.

I GUESS MY COMMENT IS, MORE TO MS. ADRIAN.

WHEN WE START DOING OUR BUDGET WORKSHOP, I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SEE NUMBERS ON WHAT THE COST WOULD BE FOR OPTION 1, OPTION 2, AND ANY OTHER OPTION THAT MISTY COMES UP WITH HERE TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE EITHER A REGISTERED NURSE OR AN LVN AT EACH CAMPUS.

I THINK MOVING FORWARD IN THE FALL, HEALTH CONCERNS ARE GOING TO BE, I MEAN, THEY ARE ALWAYS A CONCERN.

BUT IN THIS PARTICULAR YEAR, IT'S GOING TO BE PARAMOUNT THAT WE ARE PREPARED FOR ANY POSSIBLE EVENTUALITY.

SO I REALLY LIKE THE IDEA OF HAVING AN ACTUAL NURSE ON EVERY CAMPUS, AND POTENTIALLY ALSO SOMEONE WHO COULD BE AVAILABLE TO HANDLE A SICK ROOM OR LARGE NUMBERS AND NOW THE HIGH SCHOOLS.

THAT RATIO IS, THAT'S OFF THE CHARTS.

SO ANYWAY, I'D LOVE TO SEE THOSE NUMBERS FOR ALL THOSE OPTIONS.

>> OKAY. I'LL BE HAPPY TO BRING THOSE NUMBERS TO YOU.

>> MAY I ASK A QUESTION JUST FOR CLARIFICATION.

I WAS WONDERING, IS THE CLC NOT STAFFED WITH A NURSE BECAUSE OF PROXIMITY?

>> MAINLY THE HISTORY HAS BEEN THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS AT THAT CAMPUS, AND ALSO THE AVAILABILITY OF SPACE.

BECAUSE WE WILL NEED A CLINIC AREA THAT WOULD ALSO HAVE A BATHROOM CONNECTED TO IT FOR EMERGENCIES AND HEALTH AND CLEANLINESS, AND ALL OF THOSE HYGIENE ISSUES.

>> OKAY.

>> JUST GOING BACK TO THE POINT OF LOOKING AT THE COST IMPLICATIONS.

WE HAVE SOME PRELIMINARY NUMBERS.

BUT AGAIN, IN OUR BOARD WORKSHOP, WE'LL REALLY GO IN DETAIL.

BUT WE DO RECOGNIZE THAT WE HAVE DEFINITELY MORE MEDICAL DEMANDS AS IT RELATES TO COVID-19 NOW THAN WHAT WE COULD LIKELY HAVE HAD IN THE PAST, IN ADDITION TO ALL OF THE REGULAR REQUIREMENTS OF HAVING A NURSE ON CAMPUS.

SO JUST WANTED YOU TO SEE JUST BRIEFLY THE DIFFERENCE AND THE IMPACT.

OUR CURRENT PLAN, WE CURRENTLY EXPEND ABOUT 1.1 MILLION FOR MEDICAL SERVICES, WITH 34 FTES.

[00:20:01]

WE THINK THAT OPTION 1 OR OPTION 2 BOTH WOULD HELP US TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF FTES.

THE DIFFERENCE IN OPTION 1 AND OPTION 2 REALLY IS THE DIFFERENCE IN THE NUMBER OF RNS VERSUS RNS AND MEDICAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS.

SO WHAT WE CAN DO IS, WE CAN REALLY HAVE SOME DEEP CONVERSATIONS ABOUT, OKAY, WHAT IS IT THAT AN RN CAN DO THAT A MEDICAL HEALTH PROFESSIONAL MAY NOT BE ABLE TO DO? SO WE'LL REALLY HAVE SOME DEEP CONVERSATIONS ON THIS.

BUT WE'VE LOOKED INITIALLY, AND QUITE FRANKLY, I BELIEVE THAT IT IS DEFINITELY REASONABLE FOR US TO CONSIDER OPTION 1 OR 2.

THEN WE ALSO THINK THAT AS WE GET MORE INFORMATION ABOUT REIMBURSEMENTS THROUGH COVID-19, WE FEEL THAT THE INCREASES COULD FALL UP UNDER THE REIMBURSEMENT CATEGORY, AND SO WE'RE GETTING SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THAT.

BUT WE DO THINK THIS IS THE RIGHT CONVERSATION FOR US TO BE HAVING AT THE RIGHT TIME.

SO WE'LL BRING THAT INFORMATION BACK AT THE NEXT WORKSHOP.

>> DR. MCFARLAND, ALONG WITH THE COSTS, WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO ALSO GIVE US JUST A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF A NURSE VERSUS A MEDICAL HEALTH PROFESSIONAL, MEANING, WHAT THE MAIN DIFFERENCES WOULD BE IF ONE CAN ADMINISTER DRUGS AND THE I JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT THOSE SPECIFICS-

>> -ARE. IF YOU COULD JUST PROVIDE THAT WHEN WE GO THROUGH THE COSTS.

>> MS. VANCAMPEN, WE'LL DEFINITELY BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THAT IN DETAIL FOR YOU.

>> OKAY. THANK YOU.

>> ABSOLUTELY. YOU'RE WELCOME.

>> ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS REGARDING

>> OKAY. I SEEM TO BE REALLY HAVING REAL INTERNET CONNECTION ISSUES TONIGHT, I DON'T

>> GO AHEAD, MS. HALL.

>> ARE THERE ANY OTHER COMMENTS?

>> MS. DAVIS, I'M GOING TO JUMP IN THERE FOR YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE BREAKING UP QUITE A BIT.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS REGARDING AGENDA ITEM 3.2? OKAY.

>>

>> MS. HALL, THERE'S ONE MORE LITTLE REPORT HERE IN THIS AGENDA ITEM FROM DR. KOHLER.

>> OKAY. THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU.

>> ALL RIGHT. SO AS A PART OF OUR HEALTH SERVICES, WE KNOW THAT WE PROVIDE HEALTH SERVICES TO OUR STUDENTS AND ALSO WITH JPS TO OUR STUDENTS AND FAMILIES.

BASED ON YOUR DECISIONS IN THE PAST BOARD, WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO PROVIDE HEALTH SERVICES TO OUR EMPLOYEES.

AGAIN, LAST YEAR WHEN WE ACTUALLY SIGNED THE CONTRACT FOR THE EMPLOYEE HEALTH CARE CENTER, IT ACTUALLY WAS A THREE-YEAR CONTRACT.

WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE PRUDENT FOR US AT THIS TIME SINCE WE'RE DISCUSSING HEALTH TO BRING BACK JUST THE REPORT OF THE HEALTH CLINIC AND REALLY HOW IT'S BENEFITED OR EVEN THE WAYS WE CAN IMPROVE IT GOING FORWARD.

SO WE HAVE DR. KOHLER HERE TO DISCUSS OUR EMPLOYEE HEALTH CLINIC.

>> THANK YOU, DR. MCFARLAND, TRUSTEES.

THIS PAST AUGUST, THE DISTRICT BEGAN TO PROVIDE HEALTH CLINIC SERVICES FOR EMPLOYEES THROUGH A PARTNERSHIP WITH TEXAS HEALTH PHYSICIANS GROUP.

TO DATE, THE CLINIC HAS SERVED 913 EMPLOYEES AND/OR THEIR ELIGIBLE DEPENDENTS, CLINIC USAGE FOR THE PAST 10 MONTHS IS PROVIDED HERE.

THE QUESTION FOR SOME MAYBE, WHY DID USAGE FALL SO SIGNIFICANTLY IN APRIL AND MAY, ESPECIALLY IN LIGHT OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC? THERE ARE SEVERAL CONTRIBUTING FACTORS, INCLUDING STAY AT HOME ORDERS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING THAT PREVENTED THE SPREAD OF OTHER ILLNESSES, RESCHEDULING AND CANCELLATIONS OF ROUTINE OFFICE VISITS TO PREVENT PATIENT EXPOSURE TO COVID-19, AND EMPLOYEES WHO MAY NOT LIVE IN CROWLEY ISD SEEKING OTHER CARE OPTIONS CLOSER TO HOME.

THIS MONTH, THE DISTRICT PROVIDED A SURVEY FOR STAFF TO SOLICIT FEEDBACK REGARDING THEIR CLINIC EXPERIENCE.

WE ASKED ABOUT EASE OF SCHEDULING AN APPOINTMENT, CUSTOMER SERVICE, QUALITY OF CARE, AND OVERALL CONVENIENCE.

IN ADDITION, A COMMENT SECTION WAS PROVIDED IN THE SURVEY.

MOST SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT IN CLINIC SERVICES CENTERED AROUND PROVIDING BEFORE AND AFTER HOURS APPOINTMENTS, AND CLARIFICATION ABOUT SERVICES INCLUDED IN THE $10 SERVICE FEE.

THPG IMPLEMENTED A VIRTUAL APPOINTMENT OPTION IN APRIL, AND IS CURRENTLY WORKING TO PROVIDE SOME EARLY MORNING AND LATE AFTERNOON APPOINTMENTS.

WE BELIEVE THESE ENHANCEMENTS WILL HELP ADDRESS THESE CONCERNS.

BUT OVERWHELMINGLY OUR EMPLOYEES WHO RESPONDED ARE GRATEFUL AND APPRECIATIVE TO HAVE THIS ADDITIONAL SERVICE AND SUPPORT PROVIDED,

[00:25:01]

AND TO YOU, TRUSTEES, FOR MAKING THIS OPPORTUNITY AVAILABLE.

I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE AT THIS TIME.

>> DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FOR DR. KOHLER? OKAY. I DON'T THINK WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU.

>> ALL RIGHT. OUR NEXT AGENDA ITEM IS 3.3, DISTRICT PARTNERSHIP WITH ESS FOR SUBSTITUTE STAFFING. DR. MCFARLAND.

>> SO MADAM VICE PRESIDENT AND BOARD MEMBERS, AS YOU ALL KNOW ABOUT THIS TIME LAST YEAR, WE STARTED CONVERSATIONS AROUND ACTUALLY WORKING WITH ESS TO HELP US WITH OUR SUBSTITUTE ISSUE.

SO WHAT WE FEEL LIKE IS THAT WITH ESS, WE FELT LIKE AT THAT TIME, ESS WILL HELP US TO BE MORE EFFICIENT, MORE EFFECTIVE AT FINDING SUBSTITUTES, COMPENSATING SUBSTITUTES, AND REALLY MAKING SURE THAT ON EVERY DAY WE HAD ALL OUR CLASSES COVERED.

WHAT WE DO KNOW IS THAT THEY'D BEEN SOMEWHAT SUCCESSFUL THE FIRST SEMESTER, WE ACTUALLY GOT STARTED ABOUT MID-SEMESTER, SO WE HAVE SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THAT.

BUT WHAT WE ALSO KNOW IS THAT, AS IT RELATES TO COVID-19 AND PREPARING FOR THE OPENING OF SCHOOL AND THE RESTART OF SCHOOL, WE KNOW THAT WE MAY HAVE SOME CHALLENGES, AND SO WE BELIEVE THAT ESS IS ADEQUATELY PREPARED TO HELP US ADDRESS THOSE CHALLENGES IN SECURING SUBS.

BUT AGAIN, WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE PRUDENT FOR US RIGHT NOW TO GET AN UPDATE FROM ESS ABOUT WHERE WE ARE, WHAT WE'VE BEEN, WHERE WE ARE, AND WHERE WE'RE GOING AS RELATES TO SUBSTITUTES IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

I BELIEVE MR. WILLIAMS WILL ADDRESS THIS ITEMS. MR. WILLIAMS.

>> YES. GREETINGS MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, PRESIDENT DAVIS, DR. MCFARLAND.

WE ENTERED INTO THE PARTNERSHIP LAST JULY BASED OFF OF THE INFORMATION AND THE DATA THAT WAS SUPPORTED FROM ESS OF THE SUCCESS THEY HAD BEEN HAVING WITH OTHER DISTRICTS.

WE FELT PRETTY CONFIDENT THAT ESS COULD HELP US IN ADDRESSING THE CHALLENGES THAT ARE NOT ONLY CITY, STATE, BUT NATIONWIDE WE'RE PROVIDING THE APPROPRIATE COVERAGE.

I'VE INVITED THE REGIONAL ACCOUNT MANAGER, MS. JENNA CRUZ TO GIVE US AN UPDATE AS TO ESS AND OUR PARTNERSHIP TO LET US KNOW HOW THINGS ARE GOING, BUT WE FEEL PRETTY CONFIDENT, EVEN THOUGH WE WERE CUT SHORT IN GATHERING A FULL SCHOOL YEAR OF DATA RELATED TO THE SUCCESSES THAT WE'VE MADE THIS FAR WITH ESS.

I WILL ALLOW MS. JENNA CRUZ TO ELABORATE MORE ON WHAT IS GOING ON WITH OUR PARTNERSHIP.

>> ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU,

>> MS. CRUZ.

>> THANK YOU, MR. WILLIAMS. GOOD EVENING, BOARD MEMBERS AND MADAM PRESIDENT, THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO JOIN YOU TODAY VIA ZOOM, SO I CAN GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON HOW ESS HAS PARTNERED WITH CROWLEY ISD.

IF I COULD HAVE THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. THANK YOU.

FIRST OF ALL, I WANTED TO TOUCH A LITTLE BIT ON RESULTS IN ENGAGEMENT.

WE DID WANT TO MAKE MENTION THAT WE DO HAVE LIMITED DATA AS IT RELATES TO COVID-19.

TRADITIONALLY, WE WOULD BE BRINGING YOU ABOUT 6-7 MONTHS WORTH OF DATA WITH THE START DATE THAT WE HAD WITH YOU GUYS, BUT UNFORTUNATELY, WE ONLY HAVE ABOUT FOUR MONTHS OF WORKING DATA TO PROVIDE YOU.

FROM AN UPTAKE PERSPECTIVE THOUGH, WE ARE VERY CONFIDENT IN THE PROGRAM AND ITS SUCCESS.

WE STARTED WITH A FLOW RATE THAT WAS JUST SHY OF ABOUT 60 PERCENT, AND OUR AVERAGE FLOW RATE THROUGH FEBRUARY WAS AT 73 PERCENT, SO WE DEFINITELY SEE THE TRAJECTORY GOING IN THE DIRECTION WE WOULD LIKE IT TO GO TO.

WE KNOW THAT IF WE HAD HAD THOSE ADDITIONAL MONTHS OF WHAT WE TYPICALLY WOULD ENGAGE WITH OUR SPECIFIC FEATURES, THAT NUMBER WOULD BE MUCH HIGHER.

A LITTLE BIT OF WHAT I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU GUYS.

WHEN WE STARTED THE TRANSITION WITH YOU GUYS, WE HAD A LIST OF ABOUT 400 FOLKS THAT WERE QUALIFIED AS SUBSTITUTES FOR THE SUB-POOL.

WE WERE ABLE TO TRANSITION ABOUT 140 OF THOSE FOLKS.

THAT NUMBER IS A LITTLE BIT LOW, BUT THAT'S NOT SURPRISING.

WE DO SEE THAT OFTEN TIMES WHEN WE LOOK AT THE SUBSTITUTE POOL, THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT REASONS FOR FOLKS NOT COMING INTO THE NEW YEAR.

THROUGH THAT, WE WERE ABLE TO IDENTIFY HOW MANY SUBSTITUTES WE'RE ACTUALLY GOING TO NEED.

PER DAY, RIGHT NOW WE HAVE 372 ACTIVE SUBSTITUTES IN THE POOL.

THIS NUMBER HAS BEEN IMPACTED BY COVID-19.

UNFORTUNATELY, WITH THE PANDEMIC, WHEN THERE IS UNCERTAINTY, FOLKS TEND TO GET SCARED, SO WE DO REALIZE THAT FOLKS ARE LOOKING FOR OTHER EMPLOYMENT, BUT WE ARE WORKING VERY HARD TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE GOING TO COME BACK INTO THE FALL AND WE WILL BE ABLE TO SUPPORT THEM AS A SUBSTITUTE TEACHER.

RIGHT NOW AS WE STAND, WE DID HAVE TO PUT A HOLD ON OUR ORIENTATIONS AND TRAINING, BUT WE HAVE ABOUT 80 APPLICANTS IN THE PIPELINE WAITING FOR THOSE CAPACITY RESTRICTIONS

[00:30:01]

TO BE LIFTED SO THAT WE CAN ONBOARD THEM FULLY AND BRING THEM INTO THE ACTIVE SUB-POOL.

WE DO WANT TO PROVIDE SOME UPDATES ON WHAT PRIOR TO COVID-19, WHAT OUR RESULTING ENGAGEMENTS WERE LOOKING LIKE.

WE WERE HOSTING WEEKLY ORIENTATIONS AND TRAININGS WITH A DEDICATED TRAINER.

PICTURED ON THE SCREEN HERE IS THAT TRAINER FOR YOU.

MS. BAGNER HAS DONE A FANTASTIC JOB FOR US AND WE WERE VERY FORTUNATE SHE HAS OVER 10 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN SPECIAL ED, AND SO THAT HELPS WITH THE PROGRAMS THAT WE TRULY FEEL NEED THE MOST ATTENTION.

WE WERE CONDUCTING WEEKLY UPDATES WITH OUR HR LEADERS, MAKING SURE THAT THAT OPEN COLLABORATION WAS WHERE WE WANTED IT TO BE, EXCHANGING FEEDBACK ON BOTH ENDS, AND THAT HAS GONE VERY WELL WITH OUR ON-SITE PERSONNEL.

WE WERE ALSO HOLDING MONTHLY CONTESTS FOR OUR SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS, WHICH REALLY INCREASED THE ENGAGEMENT AS WE SAW, THE NUMBER OF SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS WHO WERE WORKING ON A DAILY AVERAGE HAD INCREASED WITH THOSE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MONTHLY CONTEST AND ENGAGEMENTS THANK YOU. I JUST WANT TO SHOW YOU GUYS A LITTLE BIT OF WHAT WE WERE DOING FROM A COMMUNITY PERSPECTIVE.

ONE THING THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT TO US IS MAKING SURE THAT OUR COMMUNITY REALIZES WE ARE HERE AND ACTIVE.

ON THE SCREEN HERE, I WON'T READ THROUGH ALL OF THESE, BUT THIS IS JUST A SNAPSHOT OF SOME OF THE EVENTS THAT WE ATTENDED JUST IN JANUARY AND FEBRUARY ALONE.

AS YOU CAN SEE, WE HAD MANY CAMPUS VISIT BUREAU ANY CROP FAIR THAT WE COULD GET INTO, AND JUST WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE IN THE COMMUNITY SEEING THE PRESENCE OF NOT ONLY ESS BUT CROWLEY ISD AS AN AMAZING DISTRICT THAT IT IS.

THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. THEN JUST A LITTLE BIT OF INNOVATION FOR THE FUTURE, AS WE ALL KNOW, WE HAVE TO LEARN THAT WE WILL BE ADAPTING THROUGH THE PANDEMIC, AND WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE FOR US? WHAT WE ACTUALLY INSTILL JUST PRIOR TO THE CLOSURES OF COVID-19 IS WE WERE ENGAGING IN A PROGRAM CALLED TEXT MAGIC.

WHAT WE WERE ABLE TO IDENTIFY IS THAT, SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS TEND TO RESPOND A LITTLE BIT MORE EFFECTIVELY THROUGH A TEXT MESSAGE OR THROUGH THE PHONE CALL, SO WE WERE STARTING TO ROLL OUT PROGRAMS TO SEE HOW THAT WOULD IMPACT CROWLEY ISD SPECIFICALLY

>> - WE DO INTEND TO

>> -AND WE ARE VERY EXCITED ABOUT THAT.

WE RECOGNIZE ORIENTATIONS AND TRAPPINGS MAY BE DIFFERENT IN THE FUTURE, SO WE HAVE ALREADY ESTABLISHED THEM ONLINE TRAINING PROGRAMS AND VIDEOS TO MAKE SURE THAT IF WE DO HAVE SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES THAT RESTRICT US FROM HAVING IMPORTANT TRAININGS THAT WE ARE PREPARED, TO CONTINUE TO HAVE THOSE TRAININGS AND PREPARE TO DELIVER THE IMPORTANT INFORMATION AS IT RELATES TO CROWLEY ISD, AND BEING A SUBSTITUTE TEACHER.

FROM THE WE REGULARLY UPDATE OUR SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS. WE'RE CONSTANTLY IN COMMUNICATION WITH OUR SUBS, LETTING THEM KNOW THAT WE'RE STILL HERE FOR THEM.

THEY'RE NOT LOSING THEIR POSITIONS WITH ESS OR WITHIN CROWLEY ISD.

WE WERE EVEN ABLE TO HIGHLIGHT CROWLEY ISD ON ONE OF OUR LOCAL INSTAGRAM POSTS, AS YOU CAN SEE THERE.

WE DO AND WE JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CONTINUE TO ENGAGE OUR SUBSTITUTE PARTNERS, AS WELL AS OUR DISTRICT PARTNERS AS WELL.

THOSE ARE THE HIGH-LEVEL OVERVIEWS THAT I HAVE FOR YOU GUYS.

IF THERE ARE NO QUESTIONS, THEN I WILL DEFINITELY HAND THE FLOOR BACK OVER TO MS. WILLIAMS.

>> ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> I DID HAVE ONE QUESTION, MR. WILLIAMS, WITH REGARDS TO OUR TARGET FOR FILL RATE.

DID WE HAVE A TARGET AND IF SO, HOW CLOSE WERE WE TO MEETING THAT TARGET? I DO UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE JUST WORKING WITH FOUR MONTHS WITH THE DATA, I WAS JUST WONDERING WHAT OUR TARGET WAS.

I REMEMBER I THINK-

>> I THINK WE WERE LOOKING AT ABOUT 80 TO 85 PERCENT TARGET FILL RATE.

OF COURSE, THE TRANSITION DIDN'T TAKE PLACE UNTIL OCTOBER, SO WE DIDN'T GET STARTED UNTIL NOVEMBER, AND SO WE DIDN'T HAVE THAT MUCH TIME, BUT WE WERE GAINING AT A PRETTY NICE RATE, EVEN THOUGH WE DIDN'T GET THE EXPECTED SUBSTITUTES WHO WERE CURRENTLY CROWLEY'S SUBSTITUTES THAT TRANSITIONED OVER TO ESS.

BUT WE WERE MAKING SUBSTANTIAL GAINS AND THE GOAL WAS TO REACH BETWEEN 80 AND 85 PERCENT.

>> OKAY. THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU.

>> MS. HALL.

>> YES.

>> GARY GRASSIA. I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT, I REALLY DO APPRECIATE ESS COMING TO ALL OF THOSE EVENTS.

I THINK IT MEANS THE WORLD TO CROWLEY ISD.

EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATES WITH CROWLEY ISD, I THINK THAT ESS IS SETTING AN EXAMPLE AND I APPRECIATE THAT.

[00:35:03]

>> I ECHO YOUR SENTIMENTS.

>> THANK YOU.

>> MS. DAVIS, ARE YOU BACK?

>> I AM ON MY PHONE, BUT I DON'T HAVE A SCREEN, SO GO AHEAD.

I'M WORKING ON IT, CAN YOU HEAR ME?

>> YES MA'AM, WE CAN.

>> OKAY, I'M WORKING ON IT.

>> OKAY. ARE THERE ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR MR. WILLIAMS OR MS. CRUZ? NO? IF NOT, THEN THAT CONCLUDES AGENDA ITEM 3.3, AND THIS TIME WE WILL MOVE ONTO OUR CONSENT AGENDA ITEMS.

[4.0 Consent Agenda]

THERE ARE ITEMS 4.1 THROUGH 4.8.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS REGARDING ANY OF THE CONSENT AGENDA ITEMS AT THIS TIME? IF THERE ARE NO QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS, THEN I WOULD LOOK FOR A MOTION.

>> I RECOMMEND APPROVAL OF THE CONSENT AGENDA AS PRESENTED.

>> WE HAVE A MOTION FROM MS. BENTON.

>> A SECOND-

>> THINK A SECOND BY MS. ROBINSON, AND A SECOND AND A HALF BY DR. WOODS AND MAYFIELD, I THINK.

MOTION'S BEEN SECONDED.

MR. KIRCHNER, COULD YOU HELP US WITH THE VOTE?

>> ABSOLUTELY. MS. ROBINSON?

>> YES.

>> THANK YOU. DR. WOODS AND MAYFIELD?

>> YES.

>> THANK YOU. MS. HALL?

>> YES.

>> THANK YOU. MS. DAVIS?

>> YES.

>> THANK YOU. MR. GRASSIA?

>> YES.

>> THANK YOU. MS. BENTON?

>> YES.

>> THANK YOU. MS. DAVIS, DID YOU MAKE IT BACK ON?

>> WE HAVE SIX OUT OF US VOTING AFFIRMATIVE, SO THE MOTION PASSES.

>> MADAM VICE PRESIDENT, I DO HAVE JUST ONE THING I WANTED TO POINT OUT IS A PART OF THE CONSENT.

BUT I DO WANT TO POINT OUT IN 4.8, DEALING WITH RENEWAL OF DISTRICT INSURANCE.

I DO WANT TO APPOINT OUT THAT AS A PART OF THIS RENEWAL, WE HAVE A SECURED CYBERCRIME INSTRUMENTS AS A PART OF OUR PORTFOLIO AS WELL, AND I JUST WANTED TO EMPHASIZE THAT WE KNOW THAT WE'RE IN THAT TIME, ESPECIALLY WITH WHAT'S HAPPENED TO US IN THE PAST, AS WELL AS WITH VIRTUAL LEARNING OCCURRING, WE DEFINITELY HAVE INCREASED EXPOSURE, AND SO I JUST WANTED TO JUST MAKE THAT POINT ABOUT THE INSURANCE PORTFOLIO.

EVERYTHING ELSE IS PRETTY STANDARD, BUT WE HAVE INCLUDED A CYBER INSURANCE, AND MR. FISHER CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MAY HAVE ABOUT THAT.

I JUST WANTED TO IDENTIFY THAT PIECE AS A PART OF CONSENT.

>> ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THAT COMMENTARY FROM DR. MCFARLAND?

>> YEAH. WELL, YEAH, WHAT'S THE COVERAGE? WHAT ALL DOES THAT COVER?

>> GOT YOU. MR. FISHER WOULD YOU ADDRESS THE CYBER INSURANCE COMPONENT?

>> ABSOLUTELY. GOOD EVENING, MADAM BOARD PRESIDENT, MADAM VICE PRESIDENT, DISTINGUISHED MEMBERS OF THE BOARD.

I WILL ADDRESS THAT QUESTION, DR. MCFARLAND.

THE COVERAGE AMOUNT IS $1 MILLION, AND THAT COVERS CYBERSECURITY, AND ALSO ANY PERSONAL AND PRIVATE INFORMATION OF OUR EMPLOYEES IF THAT IS TO BE COMPROMISED.

DOES THAT ANSWER YOUR QUESTION TRUSTEE RAY?

>> YES.

>> OKAY.

>> MS. HALL, IS THAT ON AN END OF, OR MR. FISHER, IS THAT ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS OR IS THAT IT'S PER OCCURRENCE OR HOW DOES THAT WORK?

>> THAT WOULD BE PER OCCURRENCE.

>> OKAY.

>> THAT 658, THAT IS PER YEAR, IS THAT CORRECT?

>> THAT IS PER YEAR.

>> OKAY.

>> ANTHONY, CAN YOU PULL THE DOCUMENT? BECAUSE I CAN'T SEE IT.

>> BUT THE 658,000 ISN'T JUST FOR THE CYBER THAT'S THE ENTIRE, WHICH IS ADDED ON LIKE A RIDER FOR CYBER-

>> THE CYBER IS ACTUALLY OFFERED BY TAZ B.

IF YOU'LL SEE IN HIS $42 000 IS THE ANNUAL PREMIUM.

I CAN'T SEE IT HERE NOW.

OKAY. ALL RIGHT.

>> SO YOU SEE THE SIGN RIGHT THERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PAGE?

>> SCROLL BACK UP, ANTHONY, OR WHOEVER IT IS, PLEASE.

>> FORTY-TWO THOUSAND WITH A MILLION-DOLLAR LIMIT AS WE TALKED ABOUT.

[00:40:05]

THE CYBER IS RIGHT THERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PAGE 42,000.

THE 658 THAT I BELIEVE THAT SOMEBODY WAS REFERRING TO.

>> YES, SIR. IT WAS THE BUDGET IMPACT.

>> ACTUALLY IT'S THE TOTAL.

IT ACTUALLY IS THE AGGREGATE AMOUNT WHICH INCLUDES OUR PROPERTY IN CRIME, WHICH IS THE SECOND OFFERING THAT YOU SEE, TEXAS POLITICAL SUBDIVISIONS, TPS?

>> YES, SIR.

>> THEN THE 148 FOR THE TASBY LINE OF INSURANCE.

>> OKAY.

>> AGAIN, THEY ACTUALLY EXPIRE EVERY JUNE 30.

SO WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE RENEW BY JULY 1ST, ON OR BEFORE JULY 1ST.

>> THAT IS A LOT FOR A MILLION-DOLLARS IN COVERAGE, BUT IT MAY BE WORTH IT.

HOPEFULLY, WE DON'T NEED IT. I GUESS IT'S ALWAYS THAT WAY WITH INSURANCE, BUT IT SEEMS VERY PRICEY.

FOUR PERCENT FOR AN ANNUAL PREMIUM, FOUR PERCENT OF THE TOTAL POSSIBLE PAYOUT SEEMS MUCH HIGHER THAN ANY OTHER INSURANCE POLICY I'VE EVER SEEN.

MAYBE JUST IN THE FUTURE, WE'D HAVE SOME INSURANCE PERSON.

>> MR. FISHER, IF YOU DON'T MIND.

>> YES, MA'AM.

>> MR. RAY, ARE YOU FINISHED? I DIDN'T WANT TO INTERRUPT YOU, I'M SORRY.

I HAD A QUESTION ABOUT YOUR COMMENT. MR. RAY?

>> YEAH, I'M DONE.

>> OKAY. MR. FISHER, THE COST THAT MR. RAY IS REFERRING TO, IS THAT COST THE SAME OR IS THAT BASED ON DISTRICT SIZE, IS IT BASED ON RISK? I'M NOT AS FAMILIAR WITH THE INSURANCE IN THIS AREA.

HOW DO THEY DETERMINE THAT COST, I GUESS, FOR THE COVERAGE?

>> YES, MA'AM. ALL COSTS ASSOCIATED.

>> I'M JUST SPEAKING TO THE CYBER PORTION OF IT.

>> YES, MA'AM. DEFINITELY, IT'S BASED UPON RISK, AND ALSO WE'VE HAD AN OCCURRENCE, SO THAT WEIGHED HEAVILY INTO THE COST.

MAYBE THAT WILL ANSWER TRUSTEE RAY'S CONCERN OR COMMENT.

>> ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

>> WELL, I DON'T HAVE A QUESTION.

I JUST WANTED TO MAKE A COMMENT THAT UNFORTUNATELY, I FEEL THAT WHAT MR. ALLAN AND THE WHOLE IT DEPARTMENT HAS DONE TO MAKE CISD AWARE OF THE SITUATION, WE ARE PROBABLY MORE AWARE OF MORE SITUATIONS THAN ANY OTHER ISD AROUND, BUT YET BECAUSE WE'VE HAD AN INCIDENT, WE'RE GOING TO BE CHARGED MORE.

ALL I'M SAYING IS I DON'T FEEL THAT IT'S RIGHT.

IT'S LIKE SAYING THAT BECAUSE YOU'VE HAD AN ACCIDENT, YOU'RE MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO HAVE ANOTHER ACCIDENT.

I DON'T AGREE WITH IT, BUT IT IS THE WAY THAT IT IS.

SO THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THAT.

>> I AGREE TOO AND TO PIGGYBACK OFF OF BOTH OF THEIR COMMENTS, IS THERE WAY, MR. FISHER, TO FIND OUT IF WE'RE ENTITLED TO ANY DISCOUNTS BECAUSE OF THE EFFORTS WE'VE MADE? I KNOW IN OTHER INSURANCE PROGRAMS, IF YOU HAVE CERTAIN ITEMS THAT YOU'VE ADDED THAT WILL PROTECT YOU IN THE FUTURE, AND I KNOW WE'VE DONE THE TRAINING, WE'VE MADE OTHER PROVISIONS.

DO YOU KNOW IF WE HAVE ANY DISCOUNTS OR IF THAT'S SOMETHING WE CAN ASK FOR?

>> I THINK WE CAN CONTINUE TO ASK FOR THAT, DR. WOODSON, TO MAKE SURE OF IT, BUT WE ACTUALLY WENT THROUGH A PRETTY RIGOROUS PROCESS IN GIVING INFORMATION RELATIVE TO THOSE PROCESSES AND PROCEDURES THAT HAD BEEN IN PLACE, AND THOSE PROCEDURES THAT ARE NOW IN PLACE, AND THIS IS THE DOLLAR FIGURE UNFORTUNATELY THAT WE WERE PRESENTED.

NOW WHAT WE CAN DO, THERE'S ALWAYS THE POWER OF COMPETITION.

AS WE GO OUT IN THE ENSUING YEARS, HOPEFULLY, BECAUSE WE WON'T HAVE ANY MORE INCIDENTS, HOPEFULLY, THOSE PRICES, SPECIFICALLY AS IT RELATES TO THE CYBER INSURANCE, WILL DECREASE.

BUT WE WENT THROUGH A RIGOROUS PROCESS,

[00:45:02]

WE SPOKE TO THE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES, WE SPOKE TO THE SAFEGUARDS THAT HAD BEEN IN PLACE, BUT I THINK THE OVERARCHING ISSUE WAS THE OCCURRENCE THAT WE DID EXPERIENCE.

>> OKAY, THANK YOU.

>> ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FOR MR. FISHER?

>> WELL, JUST ONE CLOSING COMMENT ON THIS ITEM.

IN AN EFFORT TO BE TRANSPARENT, WE BROUGHT THAT UP, BECAUSE I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU-ALL KNEW THAT WE WERE DOING EVERYTHING WE COULD TO TAKE PROACTIVE STEPS TO PREVENT FUTURE LOSSES.

WE KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENED IN THE PAST AND I JUST WANT THE BOARD TO KNOW THAT WE ARE CONSTANTLY LEARNING.

BUT I ALSO WANTED TO MAKE SURE YOU KNEW THAT WE HAVE TAKEN STEPS TO NOT ONLY PREPARE OURSELVES FROM A PRACTICAL, PROACTIVE STANDPOINT IN BEHAVIOR, WE'RE ALSO PREPARING OURSELVES TO BE PROTECTED FINANCIALLY AS WELL.

>> THANK YOU, DR. MCFARLAND.

I THINK WE ALL SHARE THE SENTIMENT, AND I'LL SPEAK FOR MYSELF, BUT I THINK I CAN SPEAK FOR THE BOARD, THAT WE APPRECIATE YOUR PROACTIVITY AND THE RESPONSIVENESS AFTER THE INCIDENT THAT WE HAD.

SO WE ARE GRATEFUL AND WE THANK YOU FOR THAT.

ALL RIGHT, I THINK THAT MOVES US TO OUR CONSIDERATION OF POSSIBLE ACTION ITEMS.

[5.0 Consideration and Possible Action Item (s)]

AGENDA ITEM 5.1, "INNOVATIVE SUMMER PROGRAMMING, FLYING CLASSROOM, STEM PLUS VIRTUAL LEARNING." DR. MCFARLAND?

>> MADAM VICE PRESIDENT, MADAM PRESIDENT, AND BOARD MEMBERS, THIS NEXT ITEM WE'RE DEFINITELY EXCITED TO BRING TO YOU.

WE SAID AT THE VERY BEGINNING OF THIS COVID-19 PANDEMIC, THAT WE HAD A CHOICE.

WE KNOW WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE CRISIS, BUT OUR DECISION AND OUR COMMITMENT IN THE DISTRICT WAS REALLY TO GROW THROUGH IT.

ONE OF THE WAYS THAT WE FELT LIKE WE COULD GROW WAS BY NOT ONLY TAKING THIS VIRTUAL LEARNING OPPORTUNITY AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN A NEW WAY OF DELIVERING INSTRUCTION, BUT ALSO LEARN A WAY OF MAKING INSTRUCTION MORE ENGAGING, MORE EXCITING, EXPOSING KIDS TO THINGS THAT THEY PROBABLY WOULD NOT HAVE SEEN IN JUST A NORMAL, TRADITIONAL CLASSROOM.

IN SO DOING, WE HAVE SEARCHED FOR INNOVATIVE PROGRAMMING EXPERIENCES FOR SUMMER.

WE'RE EXCITED TO BRING AN ITEM TO YOU TONIGHT AND WE'RE ACTUALLY BRINGING AN ITEM TO YOU TONIGHT THAT'S KIND OF OUT OF OUR NORMAL SEQUENCE OR OUR NORMAL CADENCE.

NORMALLY WE BRING AN ITEM TO YOU FOR FUTURE ACTION AND THEN WE BRING IT AT THE NEXT BOARD MEETING FOR ACTION.

WELL, THIS ITEM WE'RE BRINGING TONIGHT, WE ARE ACTUALLY BRINGING IT TO YOU FOR CONSIDERATION AND POSSIBLE ACTION TONIGHT.

THE REASON IS THAT WE KNOW THAT OUR VIRTUAL SUMMER PROGRAM IS ACTUALLY STARTING WITHIN A WEEK AND SO WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE WHAT WE NEED IN PLACE IN ORDER TO OFFER THIS INNOVATIVE SUMMER PROGRAMMING.

SO TONIGHT WE'RE GOING TO INTRODUCE IT TO YOU, WE'RE GOING TO TELL YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IT, WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO ASK US QUESTIONS, AND THEN IF YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE AT THE END, WE'D LIKE YOU TO TAKE ACTION DUE TO THE TIME CONSTRAINTS RELATIVE TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THIS INNOVATIVE SUMMER PROGRAM.

WE HAVE DR. WILLIAMS HERE WHO IS PREPARED TO INTRODUCE THE INNOVATIVE SUMMER PROGRAM TO YOU, TO SHARE DETAILS ABOUT IT, AND THEN WE'LL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO ENGAGE IN DISCUSSION. DR. WILLIAMS?

>> GOOD EVENING MADAM PRESIDENT, DISTINGUISHED BOARD MEMBERS, DR. MCFARLAND.

THIS EVENING I BRING TO YOU INFORMATION IN REGARDS TO OUR INNOVATIVE SUMMER PROGRAMMING THAT ALIGNS WITH OUR VISION 2025 GOAL NUMBER 1, THRIVING STUDENTS.

IF THIS IS APPROVED, OUR STUDENTS UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF FLYING CLASSROOM AND THE STEM PLUS COACHES, ALONG WITH A DISTRICT ADMINISTRATOR, WILL ENGAGE IN A FLYING CLASSROOM EXPEDITION, WHICH IS HELD THROUGH A VIRTUAL LEARNING PLATFORM.

THE FLYING CLASSROOM IS SET TO BEGIN JUNE 8TH, AS DR. MCFARLAND SHARED WITH YOU, REALLY SOON.

>> IT WILL GO TO THE END OF JULY.

THIS VIRTUAL LEARNING EXPERIENCE WILL TARGET ABOUT 400 OF OUR CURRENT SIXTH-GRADERS ACROSS THE DISTRICT.

THE FLYING CLASSROOM PROMOTES ENGAGEMENT, EXPLORATION, INQUIRY, THROUGH STEM PLUS ACTIVITIES AND AGAIN THROUGH OUR VIRTUAL LEARNING PLATFORM.

EACH STUDENT WILL NAVIGATE THROUGH FLYING CLASSROOM STEM PLUS CURRICULUM, WILL ENGAGE IN DIFFERENT ACTIVITIES AND EXPEDITIONS THAT WILL BE COVERED OVER A WIDE VARIETY OF STEM PLUS ACTIVITIES SUCH AS YOU-ALL MAY HAVE SEEN SOME OF THE THINGS THAT BARRINGTON HAS DONE, THE HALO JUMP, FOOD WASTE FRUIT BAT SOUP, AND AS WELL AS THE BLUE ANGELS IN AEROSPACE FLIGHTS.

THIS CUSTOMIZED CURRICULUM THROUGH FLYING CLASSROOM ALIGNS THERE EXPEDITIONS WITH OUR TICKS.

OUR PRIMARY FOCUS THAT WE ASKED FOR WAS THROUGH LITERACY IN MATHEMATICS.

SO IN ADDITION TO THEIR ACTIVITIES, STUDENTS WILL HAVE AN INTERACTION WEEKLY WITH CAPTAIN IRVING.

[00:50:03]

NOW WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO IS SHARE A VIDEO AND WELCOME CISD TO THE FLYING CLASSROOM.

>> FLYING CLASSROOM LEAD EXPLORERS AND EXPLORERS.

I JUST WANT TO WELCOME YOU GUYS TO A BRAND NEW SCHOOL YEAR.

FLYING CLASSROOM IS ABOUT TO LAUNCH VERSION 3.0 OF OUR ONLINE PORTAL.

YOU'RE GOING TO FIND A NUMBER OF NEW EXPEDITIONS OUR TEAM ACCOMPLISHED ALL OVER THE WORLD.

QUICK QUESTION, ARE YOU READY TO ENGAGE AND SEE US BRING THE WORLD TO YOUR CLASSROOM? ARE YOU READY TO EXPLORE AND ARE YOU READY TO INNOVATE? I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOUR ENGINEERING DESIGN CHALLENGES AND FOR YOU ALL TO REALIZE YOUR VERY OWN GREATNESS.

ONTO OUR NEXT ADVENTURE, BLUE SKIES.

>> ALL RIGHT. SO BOARD MEMBERS, WHAT WE'D LIKE TO DO IS WE'D LIKE TO INTRODUCE CAPTAIN BARRINGTON IRVING.

WE HAVE CAPTAIN IRVING, WHO'S ONLINE WITH US TONIGHT AND ABLE TO TALK TO YOU TONIGHT.

CAPTAIN IRVING IS DEFINITELY A GREAT GUY, OUTSTANDING EXPLORER.

I'VE HAD OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH HIM QUITE A BIT AND JUST REALLY EXCITED TO BE ABLE TO BRING HIM TO A CROWLEY ISD AND TO THE STUDENTS IN CROWLEY ISD.

SO CAPTAIN IRVING, I WANT TO GIVE YOU A CHANCE TO JUST TALK TO OUR BOARD AND JUST GIVE THEM AN OVERVIEW OF WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR PROGRAM.

>> SURE, NO PROBLEM. THANK YOU, MADAM PRESIDENT, BOARD OF TRUSTEES, DR. MCFARLAND, AND I JUST REALLY THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE A LITTLE BIT ABOUT FLYING CLASSROOM.

I'VE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET TO KNOW CROWLEY ISD.

LAST YEAR, WE WERE INVOLVED AS RELATES TO THE BUILDING OF YOUR STEM BUS, TRANSFORMING YOUR SCHOOL BUS WITH SOME OF YOUR MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS.

OVER THE PAST EIGHT WEEKS, WE'VE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONDUCT A LIVE SESSION WITH THE STUDENTS, IMMERSING THEM IN EXPEDITION FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.

TO BE QUITE HONEST, MY WHOLE MISSION AND GOAL IS TO JUST SIMPLY SHOW STUDENTS WHAT YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH THROUGH STEM PLUS AND REALLY ACCOMPLISHING YOUR HIGHEST SELF THROUGH STEM PLUS.

MY BIGGEST DREAM WAS JUST TO BECOME AN AIRLINE PILOT UNTIL THE GENTLEMAN WHO INTRODUCED ME TO AVIATION SHOWED ME, "HEY, IT'S MORE THAN A CAREER.

IT'S UNDERSTANDING INDUSTRIES AND KNOWING HOW TO USE MATH, SCIENCE, LITERACY TO ACCOMPLISH WHATEVER YOU WANT IN LIFE." WE'VE HAD TREMENDOUS SUCCESS DOING THAT WITH STUDENTS BUILDING AIRPLANES, RACE CARS, AND EVEN MORE SO AS IT RELATES TO THE VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT WHERE WE'RE IMMERSING STUDENTS VIRTUALLY IN OVER 55 EXPEDITIONS, PROVIDING THEM THE TOOLS AND THE MATERIALS THEY NEED TO BUILD THINGS AT HOME AND BE CAPABLE OF REALIZING STEM LITERALLY WITHIN A VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT FOR THE PAST EIGHT OR NINE WEEKS.

WE'VE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE THIS QUITE A BIT WITH SOME OF YOUR STUDENTS.

OF COURSE, DURING THE SUMMER WE'LL BE SOLELY FOCUSED ON SIX GRADERS, AS CLARENCE MENTIONED EARLIER.

WE'LL BE WORKING WITH 400 STUDENTS, 200 STUDENTS IN JUNE, 200 STUDENTS IN JULY.

WE'RE VERY EXCITED ABOUT IT.

SOME OF THE TOPICS WE COVER IS AROUND POLLINATION AND HONEYBEES, GEOLOGY AND WATER HYDRODYNAMICS AS RELATES TO ICELAND, FOOD WASTE AND OF COURSE, A HALO JUMP, JUMPING OUT OF A PLANE AT 30,000 FEET.

THE WHOLE POINT OF THIS, TO BE QUITE HONEST, IS ALTHOUGH THE JOURNEY IS IMPORTANT, WHAT KIDS REALLY CARE ABOUT IS THE FINISH LINE.

I'LL NEVER FORGET THE QUESTION I ASKED MY MENTOR WHO INTRODUCED ME TO AVIATION, HE SAID, "HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU MAKE?" EVEN THESE SESSIONS WE'VE HAD OVER THE PAST EIGHT WEEKS WITH YOUR STUDENTS, THE QUESTIONS ARE AROUND, "OKAY.

HOW DO I PRACTICALLY USE STEM IN REAL LIFE?" "HOW ARE YOU ABLE TO EITHER PROVE THAT, TALK TO US ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON WITH COVID-19, " AND EXPLAINING THAT, "HEY, THIS IS A TREE, RIGHT? CORONAVIRUS IS A TREE AND ONE OF THE LEAVES HAS EVOLVED TO THE DEADLIEST STRAIN OF CORONAVIRUS."

[00:55:04]

SO BEING ABLE TO REALLY NOT ONLY TALK WITH STUDENTS, BUT SHOWING THEM PRACTICALLY HOW YOU APPLY MATH AND SCIENCE AS WELL AS LITERACY IN THE REAL-WORLD, THAT'S REALLY IT REALLY BOILS DOWN TO ENGAGING STUDENTS IN THE FIRST 15 SECONDS APPROX, AND THAT'S WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT AND TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE SOME OF OUR EXPEDITIONS AND CONNECT THAT TO YOUR REALLY CHALLENGE KIDS NOT ONLY TO DO THINGS WITH THEIR HANDS, BUT ALSO TRY TO MASTER SOME OF THE CORE STANDARDS THAT NEED TO BE DEALT WITH.

WE HAVE A PHENOMENAL TEAM THAT WE WORK WITH IN ORDER TO GET THIS DONE.

>> THANK YOU. THANK YOU, CAPTAIN IRVING, AGAIN FOR THE WORK THAT YOU'VE BEEN DOING WITH US, AND PROVIDED WE GET THIS APPROVED, WE'LL BE EXCITED ABOUT WHAT IS TO COME.

SO NOW, I'LL GO BACK TO YOU, DR. WILLIAMS. IF YOU'LL JUST TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE FINANCIAL COMMITMENT THAT'S REQUIRED AND THEN WE'LL OPEN UP FOR ANY QUESTIONS.

>> AS YOU SEE THAT THE BUDGET AS PRESENTED, I DO WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU THAT THIS WILL BE A GRANT FUNDED SUMMER PROGRAM.

SO FOR THE AMOUNT THAT'S COVERED, FOR THE 85,000 WE HAVE SECURED THE FUNDS FOR GRANTS TO COVER THIS.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTION AT THIS TIME, I'M WILLING TO ANSWER.

>> ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FOR DR. WILLIAMS OR CAPTAIN IRVING AT THIS TIME?

>> MISS HALL, I HAVE A QUESTION. CAN YOU HEAR ME?

>> YES, MA'AM.

>> OH GREAT. OKAY. I MAY HAVE MISSED IT, BUT FOR THESE STUDENTS OR THESE STUDENTS THAT WE'VE ALREADY BEEN WORKING WITH THAT WILL PARTICIPATE THIS SUMMER.

>> WE WILL BE TARGETING OUR CURRENT SIXTH GRADERS, ABOUT 400 SIXTH GRADERS FROM THROUGHOUT THE DISTRICT.

>> OKAY. THANK YOU.

>> WOULD YOU SHARE, DR. WILLIAMS, ON HOW YOU'RE TARGETING THEM, IF THEY'RE INTERESTED OR DO THEY HAVE TO MEET SOME TYPE OF THRESHOLD OR CRITERIA?

>> DEFINITELY INTEREST-BASED.

WE WILL BE WORKING WITH THE PRINCIPALS TO IDENTIFY SOME NEW STUDENTS THAT DEFINITELY NEED TO BE TARGETED TO INVITE AS WELL.

SO THAT WILL BE A PART OF THE PROCESS.

AGAIN, WE HAVE A DISTRICT ADMINISTRATOR I'LL BE WORKING ALONGSIDE OF THE FLYING CLASSROOM.

>> IF I UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY, IS THIS FULLY VIRTUAL, THERE'S NO IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION, THIS IS COMPLETELY ONLINE THIS SUMMER?

>> IT WILL ALL BE ONLINE. YES, MA'AM.

>> I WANTED TO CLARIFY THAT I HEARD CORRECTLY.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FOR DR. WILLIAMS OR CAPTAIN IRVING?

>> SINCE IT'S ONLINE THE MATERIAL, KITS, ARE THOSE JUST MAILED TO THE STUDENTS? YOU MAY HAVE SAID THAT.

>> NO, I DIDN'T GET A CHANCE TO.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE DO HAVE, THE STEM BUS.

WE WILL BE TAKING THE STEM BUS AROUND THE DISTRICT AND DELIVERING MATERIALS TO STUDENTS THAT CANNOT PICK THEM UP.

WE WILL HAVE A DISTRIBUTION POINT BUT THOSE LOGISTICS WILL BE WORKED OUT WITH THE ADMINISTRATOR THAT WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS.

>> OKAY. THANK YOU.

>> MADAM VICE PRESIDENT, I JUST ALSO WANT TO ASK SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.

SO WHAT WE KNOW IS THAT ACCORDING TO OUR STATE ASSESSMENT, SCIENCE IS TESTED AT THE FIFTH GRADE AND THEN ALSO AT THE EIGHTH GRADE.

WHAT WE DO KNOW IS THAT OUR CURRENT SIXTH GRADERS, BECAUSE OF HOW THE PANDEMIC HAPPENED, THE CURRENT SIX GRADERS WILL NATURALLY HAVE A SIGNIFICANT GAP AS IT RELATES TO SCIENCE.

SO WE FELT LIKE WE WOULD IDENTIFY THOSE SIXTH GRADERS BECAUSE THEY WERE FIFTH GRADERS BEFORE.

SO WE TARGETED THE SIXTH GRADE FOR THE EXPRESS PURPOSE TO TRY TO BUILD THAT GAP, TRY TO BRIDGE THAT GAP.

THEN WHAT OUR NEXT PLAN IS AS WE TRANSITION INTO THE BACK TO SCHOOL, WE KNOW WITH OUR STEM PLUS PLAN AND WILL'S SESSION COMING UP PRETTY SOON TO TALK ABOUT STEM PLUS.

BUT WHAT WE HOPE IS TO BE ABLE TO LEVERAGE AND USE SOME OF THE EXPEDITIONS WITHIN THE FLYING CLASSROOM TO INTEGRATE WITHIN OUR STEM PLUS PROGRAM AND OUR STEM CLASSES SO THAT ALL KIDS WILL GET EXPOSURE.

BUT WE THOUGHT WE WOULD START WITH SIXTH GRADE AT A VERY SMALL CONTROLLED NUMBER OF 400.

LEARN FROM THE 400 IN IMPLEMENTING THE FLYING CLASSROOM AND THEN POSSIBLY PARLAY IT INTO OFFERING

[01:00:02]

IT TO OTHER KIDS IN THE DISTRICT STARTING THE SCHOOL YEAR.

>> THANK YOU, DR. MCFARLAND.

>> DR. WILLIAMS, IS THERE ANY OTHER INFORMATION YOU WANT TO ADD?

>> NO, MA'AM.

>> I DIDN'T KNOW IF-

>> I DIDN'T KNOW IF THERE WAS MORE.

>> NO, MA'AM.

>> CAPTAIN IRVING?

>> YES. I JUST ALSO WANTED TO ADD AFTER THE SUMMER WHERE WE WANT TO CONTINUE WITH THE FAMILIES OF THESE STUDENTS JUST SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THE AMOUNT OF REQUESTS WE'VE HAD OVER THE PAST EIGHT WEEKS, WHERE WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE SPECIFICALLY WITH THE FAMILY FROM THE SIXTH GRADE STUDENTS, WHERE WE CONTINUE TO HAVE BASICALLY LIKE A VIRTUAL FAMILY ACADEMY.

ONCE A MONTH, ALONGSIDE WITH THEIR FAMILY, WE DELVE IN DEEPER INTO OTHER EXPEDITIONS.

I'M ACTUALLY QUITE AMAZED THAT YOU NOT ONLY SEE THE CHILDREN WATCHING WHAT WE'RE DOING, BUT YOU ALSO SEE OLDER SIBLINGS OR PARENTS OR GUARDIANS AS WELL.

>> THANK YOU, CAPTAIN IRVING.

I KNOW THAT CROWLEY ISD ALWAYS DOES A MAGNIFICENT JOB OF GETTING THE WORD OUT ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT'S GOING ON IN OUR DISTRICT AND ALL THE GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENTS THAT WE HAD.

THOUGH I HOPE THAT WE'LL BE ABLE TO FILL OFF 400 SEATS IN TIME FOR OUR JUNE 8 START.

>> MS. HALL.

>> YES, SIR.

>> I'M SORRY. THE QUESTION I HAVE, AND YOU JUST SAID ON THAT, THE 400 STUDENTS, HYPOTHETICALLY, WE DON'T HIT 400 STUDENTS.

IS THAT GOING TO REMAIN THE 85,000, OR IS IT BASED ON SOMETHING ELSE, OR HOW DOES THAT WORK?

>> SO WE BELIEVE THAT, OF COURSE, WE HAVE IT ADMINISTRATED AND OUR GOAL WILL BE TO GET TO THE 400.

BUT IF WE DON'T GET TO THE 400 STUDENTS OR WE DON'T GET TO THE 400 SIXTH GRADERS, THEN WE'LL EXPAND IT AND START LOOKING AT OTHER GRADE LEVELS.

SO THE GOAL WOULD BE TO GET TO 400 STUDENTS.

NOW, WHETHER THEY'RE ALL SIXTH GRADERS OR WE HAVE SOME SEVENTH GRADERS OR FIFTH GRADERS, THEN AS WE MOVE FORWARD, WE WILL BE ABLE TO KNOW EXACTLY WHERE WE ARE.

>> I DON'T WANT TO SAY HINDER, BUT DOES THAT CHANGE

>> I DIDN'T HEAR THE ENTIRE QUESTION BUT IF YOU HEARD THE QUESTION, CAPTAIN IRVING, IF YOU COULD RESPOND, BUT IF NOT, IF YOU COULD RESTATE THE QUESTION, MR. GRASSIA?

>>YEAH, I HEARD-

>> -

>> COULD YOU RESTATE THE

>> I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT A FIFTH GRADER IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO LEARN WHATEVER THE LESSON PLAN IS FOR THAT DAY OR THAT WEEK, THAT THE FIFTH GRADER IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO LEARN JUST AS A SEVENTH GRADER OR A SIX GRADER OR WHAT HAVE YOU.

>> GOT YOU.

>> YEAH. THE STUDENTS WILL BE SEPARATED INTO DIFFERENT GROUPS.

SO YOU'RE NOT HAVING 400 KIDS ON MASSIVELY AT ONE TIME, BECAUSE WE REALIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF THAT.

SO VIRTUALLY, WE'RE GOING TO KEEP THE GROUP SMALL, I THINK 20 OR 30 SOMEWHAT STUDENTS AT A TIME, FOUR SESSIONS A DAY, FOUR DAYS A WEEK, BUT THEY ALL HAVE DIFFERENT TIME SLOTS.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, 200 STUDENTS BEGIN IN JUNE, AND THEN THE SECOND WAVE BEGINS IN JULY.

>> OKAY.

>> ALSO, I KNOW WE SHARED THIS, BUT AS FAR AS THE TEACHERS THAT ARE GOING TO BE DELIVERING THE INSTRUCTION AND TEACHERS THAT WILL BE DELIVERING THE EXPEDITIONS, THOSE WILL THEN BE ALL TRAINED BY THE FINE CLASSROOM AND PROVIDED BY CAPTAIN IRVING AND HIS TEAM.

TALK TO US ABOUT THE TYPE OF EDUCATORS YOU'LL HAVE WORKING WITH OUR STUDENTS, CAPTAIN IRVING.

>> YEAH. SO WE HAVE, FOR EXAMPLE, IT'S A MIXTURE.

SOME OF THEM ARE ACTUAL FORMER STEM EXPERTS THEMSELVES.

FOR EXAMPLE, A FORMER CHEMIST.

WE ALSO DO HAVE SOME COLLEGE THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS THAT YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO INTRODUCE TO KIDS.

SO-

>> -WE HAVE DIFFERENT EXPERTS AS RELATES TO SUBJECT MATTERS, SPECIFICALLY TO THAT EXPEDITION AND EDUCATORS AS WELL WHO HAVE NOT BEEN TOO FAR REMOVED FROM THE CLASSROOM, MEANING THEY WERE TEACHING WITHIN THE LAST THREE TO FIVE YEARS.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, AS RELATES TO THE MATERIALS, FOR EXAMPLE,

[01:05:02]

WE KNOW THE FIRST WAVE OF STUDENTS, THEY'LL BEGIN THE WEEK OF JUNE 8TH.

WE'VE ALREADY COORDINATED TO USE ONE OF OUR AIRPLANES TO ACTUALLY DELIVER THE MATERIALS DIRECTLY TO THE

>> WELL, DR. MCFARLAND, IF YOU CAN JUST MAKE SURE THAT THERE ARE ONLY 399 SPOTS AND I CAN HAVE ONE OF THEM, I'D APPRECIATED IT.

>> NO DOUBT. WELL, YOU KNOW MR. GRASSIA, ONE OF HIS EXPEDITIONS IS DEALING WITH FOOD WASTE, AND SO MAYBE WE CAN WORK OUT SOMETHING WHERE WE CAN GET WASTES FROM THE RESTAURANT AND ENGAGE KIDS.

I THINK THE OPPORTUNITIES THAT WE HAVE-

>> -JUST TO MAKE IT REAL LIFE IS AWESOME.

SO WE'RE GOING TO WORK THAT OUT.

WE'LL GET YOU IN THE CLASS AT SOME POINT IN TIME, FOR SURE.

>> ABSOLUTELY.

>> WE'RE MORE THAN HAPPY TO HAVE YOU.

>> I CAN TAKE IT.

>> THANK YOU, CAPTAIN IRVING AND DR. WILLIAMS. ARE THERE ANY ADDITIONAL COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS AT THIS TIME? IF NOT, THIS IS A POSSIBLE ACTION ITEM.

IF THERE IS A MOTION.

>> I'D LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION THAT WE RECOMMEND THE APPROVAL OF THE INNOVATIVE SUMMER PROGRAMMING PROPOSAL FOR THE STEM, PLUS VIRTUAL LEARNING FROM FLYING CLASSROOM AS PRESENTED.

>> WE HAVE A MOTION FROM MR. GRASSIA. IS THERE A SECOND?

>> I'LL SECOND THE MOTION.

>> WE HAVE A SECOND FROM MR. RAY.

MR. KIRCHNER, FOR A VOTE?

>> YES, MA'AM. MS. ROBINSON?

>> YES.

>> THANK YOU. DR. WOODSON-MAYFIELD?

>> YES.

>> THANK YOU. MS. HALL?

>> YES.

>> THANK YOU. MS. DAVIS?

>> YES.

>> THANK YOU. MR. RAY?

>> YES.

>> THANK YOU. MR. GRASSIA?

>> YES.

>> MS. BENTON?

>> YES.

>> THANK YOU.

>> THE MOTION PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

THIS MINUTES IS TO THE AGENDA ITEM 5.2, LEASE AGREEMENT FOR ADDITIONAL GOOGLE CHROMEBOOK LAPTOP COMPUTERS FOR STUDENTS. DR. MCFARLAND,

>> MADAM PRESIDENT AND BOARD MEMBERS, AS YOU KNOW, AGAIN, AS A RESULT OF THE COVID-19, WE'VE HAD TO PIVOT QUITE OFTEN.

SO AGAIN, WE DISTRIBUTED SEVERAL GOOGLE DEVICES, SEVERAL DEVICES DURING THE BEGINNING OF THE PANDEMIC, AND WE HAVE MADE A DECISION TO ALLOW STUDENTS TO CONTINUE TO USE THOSE DEVICES AT HOME WHEN THE SCHOOL YEAR STARTS.

SO WHAT THAT MEANS IS THAT WE KNOW WE HAVE ADDITIONAL DEVICES THAT WE HAVE TO PURCHASE AND WE HAVE TO REPLACE DEVICES THAT WE HAVE CURRENTLY, HAD CREDITED INITIALLY, PURCHASED TO BE USED ON CAMPUS, BUT WE ALSO HAVE ADDITIONAL STUDENTS WHO DID RECEIVE DEVICES BEFORE THAT WE KNOW WILL NEED THEM.

SO THIS ACTION ITEM IS TO ADDRESS THAT OCCURRENT635214444 AND IMPENDING ISSUE THAT WE KNOW WE'LL FACE WITH VIRTUAL LEARNING.

MR. FISHER IS HERE TO PRESENT AN ACTION TO ADDRESS THE ITEM OF CHROMEBOOKS. MR. FISHER.

>> GOOD EVENING, SIR, AGAIN.

I BELIEVE MR. CAMPBELL IS PREPARED TO SPEAK TO THIS ITEM.

>> ALL RIGHT, MR. CAMPBELL.

>> THANK YOU, DR. MCFARLAND.

MADAM PRESIDENT, MADAM VICE-PRESIDENT, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD.

IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19, CURRENTLY, ISD PASSED OUT CHROMEBOOKS TO EVERY CISD HOUSEHOLD THAT REQUESTED THE DEVICE.

WE PASSED OUT ALMOST 5,000 DEVICES.

IN ORDER TO DO THIS, WE BROUGHT CHROMEBOOKS FROM THE CARTS AT THE SCHOOLS.

DR. MCFARLAND AND THE LEADERSHIP TEAM HAVE DISCUSSED THE ADVANTAGES OF STUDENTS HAVING DEVICES AT HOME.

FIRST AND FOREMOST, THIS LEVELS THE PLAYING FIELD, GIVING ALL STUDENTS THE ABILITY TO STAY CONNECTED AND LEARN FROM HOME AS WELL AS SCHOOL.

IT ALSO PREPARES US FOR NEXT YEAR IN THE EVENT OR THE NEED THAT WE MIGHT CONTINUE DISTANCE LEARNING IN SOME FORM OR FASHION.

MS. ADRIAN, MR. FISHER, AND I LOOKED AT SEVERAL DIFFERENT POSSIBILITIES TO REPLACE THE CHROMEBOOKS BORROWED FROM THE SCHOOLS.

WE FEEL THE BEST OPTION IS A FOUR-YEAR LEASE WITH A ONE-DOLLAR BUYOUT AT THE END OF THE LEASE.

THIS LEASE WILL ALLOW US TO SPREAD OUT THE FINANCIAL IMPACT OVER FOUR YEARS AT THE COST OF $255,465 A YEAR, THE ONE-DOLLAR BUYOUT WILL ALLOW US TO PURCHASE THE DEVICES FOR $5,000.

AT THE END OF THE LEASE, CROWLEY ISD WILL OWN THE DEVICES AND UNDER NORMAL USAGE, WE WILL BE ABLE TO USE THESE DEVICES FOR ANOTHER TWO YEARS AT LEAST.

WE REALIZE THE FINANCIAL BURDEN FOR THIS REQUEST WOULD FEEL THE IMPACT THAT THIS WILL HAVE ON STUDENTS LEARNING IS WORTH THE INVESTMENT.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION OF THIS REQUEST TO LEASE 5,000 CHROMEBOOKS.

>> ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS FOR MR. CAMPBELL OR MR. FISHER AT THIS TIME? I DID HAVE A QUESTION, AND I THINK YOU SAID IT BUT I WANTED TO CLARIFY.

SO THE ANTICIPATED LIFE OF A CHROMEBOOK IS AT LEAST SIX YEARS,

[01:10:04]

IS WHAT YOU'RE SAYING?

>> CORRECT.

>> OKAY. ON ANOTHER SUBJECT THAT IS KIND OF RELATED WITH REGARDS TO THE HOTSPOTS, I KNOW THAT WE DID A LOT WITH HOTSPOTS AS WELL.

ARE WE GETTING THOSE BACK? ARE WE LEAVING THEM IN THE HOMES? I WAS CURIOUS WHAT WE'RE DOING WITH THE CONNECTIVITY PORTION.

>> WE HAVE LEASED THOSE FOR A YEAR AND SO WE'RE GOING TO LEAVE THOSE AT THE HOMES AND PROCEED TO HAVE INTERNET CONNECTIVITY AT HOME AND FEEL LIKE THAT'S AN IMPORTANT THING FOR CROWLEY ISD TO DO AS WELL.

>> THANK YOU, MR. CAMPBELL.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS?

>> I HAVE A QUESTION.

>> I'M SORRY. OKAY, GO AHEAD, DR. MCFARLAND. GO AHEAD.

>> JUST TO COMMENT. WHAT WE KNOW IS THAT THE EXPENSES THAT WE ARE INCURRING AS A RESULT OF EITHER THE ISSUING OF THE DEVICES OR ISSUING OF THE HOTSPOTS, WE BELIEVE THAT ALL OF THOSE ARE REIMBURSABLE EXPENSES AND SO OUR PLAN RIGHT NOW IS TO ALLOW STUDENTS TO KEEP ALL THE DEVICES, KEEP THE HOTSPOTS AND THEN GET REIMBURSED SO THAT WE CAN REPLACE THOSE DEVICES OR THE HOTSPOTS.

THAT'S THE PLAN TO REPLENISH OUTSIDE OF THIS LEASE AGREEMENT.

>> THANK YOU FOR THAT CLARIFICATION BECAUSE THAT WAS GOING TO BE A FOLLOW-UP QUESTION.

DR. MAYFIELD HAS A QUESTION AND THEN WE'LL GO TO YOU, MS. ROBINSON.

>> OKAY.

>> THANK YOU, MS. HALL. I WAS GOING TO ASK THAT SAME QUESTION, BUT ALSO FOR SENIORS THAT DID TURN THEIR CHROMEBOOKS IN, BUT THERE ARE OTHER SIBLINGS AT THE HOME, I KNOW WE HAD ONE DEVICE PER HOME.

IN A LOT OF CASES, THOSE STUDENTS THEN WOULD JUST BE ABLE TO CHECK OUT IN THE NEXT SEMESTER, CORRECT? BECAUSE NOW THERE'S A CHROMEBOOK IN THAT HOME.

>> YES, MA'AM. EVERY CROWLEY ISD HOME THAT REQUESTS OR NEEDS A DEVICE WILL HAVE ONE PER HOME.

>> THANK YOU.

>> MS. ROBINSON.

>> I WANT TO KNOW, SINCE WE'RE ALLOWING STUDENTS TO KEEP THEIR CHROMEBOOKS, DO WE HAVE ANY PLANS IN THE FUTURE TO GO ONE TO ONE K THROUGH 12?

>> SO I BELIEVE THAT IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING THAT WE ARE CONSIDERING.

WE WANTED TO FIRST GO ONE DEVICE PER HOME AND THEN BEGIN TO LOOK AT WHAT IT WOULD TAKE US TO GO ONE-TO-ONE.

BUT THE LEASE GIVES US THE FLEXIBILITY AND THE OPTION TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT, FOR SURE.

>> OKAY.

>> HOW MANY, AND MAYBE IT WAS ALREADY SAID, BUT HOW MANY DO WE HAVE OUT THERE NOW?

>> WE PASSED OUT 4,970 DEVICES FOR THE COVID-19.

>> BUT THEN A LOT OF THE KIDS ALREADY HAD THEM, ALL THE HIGH-SCHOOLERS ALREADY HAD THEM, RIGHT?

>> CORRECT. THERE'S ACTUALLY 8,857 UNIQUE HOUSEHOLDS IN CROWLEY ISD.

IF YOU DON'T COUNT THE 9TH TO 12TH GRADERS BECAUSE THEY HAVE A ONE-TO-ONE, 9TH TO 12TH GRADE.

THAT LEAVES 537 HOUSEHOLDS THAT DON'T HAVE A DEVICE OR WOULD NOT HAVE A DEVICE IN THE HOME.

>> OH, OKAY.

>> DOES THAT ANSWER YOUR QUESTION?

>> WITH 8,000 PLUS THE 5,000 WE'RE GIVING, WE'RE GOING TO BE CLOSE TO HAVING ONE FOR EVERY KID.

OBVIOUSLY, THEY WILL BE LOSING SOME OF THOSE 8,000 OR WHATEVER.

>> I THINK THE PROBLEM THAT WE HAVE WITH THE ONE-TO-ONE IS, WE'VE DONE ONE-TO-ONE IN THE MIDDLE SCHOOLS WHEN WE FIRST STARTED BUT THE MIDDLE-SCHOOLERS TENDED NOT TO BRING THOSE TO CLASS, WHICH IS WHY THE PRINCIPAL HAS ASKED US TO SHIFT TO THE CHROME CARTS, THAT WAY THE KIDS HAD THEM IN THE CLASSROOMS. THERE'S NO EXCUSE THEY DIDN'T BRING THEM.

THAT'S WHY WE SHIFTED TO THAT MODEL AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL LEVEL.

>> OKAY.

>> MS. HALL?

>> YES, GO AHEAD, MR. GRASSIA.

>> SORRY. SO ALL OF THOSE DEVICES, HOTSPOTS, IS THERE A WAY THAT WE ARE ABLE TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY'RE BEING USED? IF NOT, OBVIOUSLY THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO I WOULD ASSUME THAT ARE STILL REQUESTING.

I'M SORRY IF I DIDN'T HEAR THAT CORRECTLY.

BUT PEOPLE STILL REQUESTING HOTSPOTS AND STUFF LIKE THAT, THAT WE ARE ABLE TO UTILIZE THOSE THAT ARE NOT BEING USED.

>> THERE ARE STILL PEOPLE REQUESTING.

IT IS DOWN TO 10 A WEEK, SO IT'S NOT VERY MANY.

BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE STILL REQUESTING THOSE.

AS AS FAR AS UTILIZATION, YES, GOOGLE CHROME HAS A DASHBOARD THAT WE CAN GO INTO WHERE WE CAN LOOK AT ALL THE DEVICES THAT ARE USED,

[01:15:02]

WHEN THEY WERE LAST USED, HOW LONG THEY WERE USED.

IF YOU'D LIKE SOME OF THOSE ANALYTICS, I CAN TRY AND PULL THOSE UP AND GIVE THOSE TO YOU GUYS.

>> UNLESS SOMEBODY ELSE, I JUST THINK THAT IF WE ARE LOOKING TO PURCHASE MORE, I THINK WE NEED TO LOOK AT THE UTILIZATION OF THOSE HOTSPOTS BEFORE WE LOOK TO PURCHASE ANYMORE.

>> WERE YOU REFERRING TO THE HOTSPOTS OR TO THE CHROMEBOOKS, MR. GRASSIA?

>> THE HOTSPOTS.

IF THEY'RE USING THEIR CHROMEBOOKS, THEN OBVIOUSLY, I DON'T THINK THERE'S A WAY THAT WE CAN TRACK OTHER THAN THROUGH THE HOTSPOT ON WHETHER OR NOT THEY'RE USING THE CHROMEBOOKS.

I ASSUMED THAT THEY ARE.

BUT I KNOW THAT THERE IS A WAY THAT WE CAN TRACK THE HOTSPOTS AND IF THEY'RE NOT BEING UTILIZED, I DON'T KNOW IF THERE'S SOMETHING THAT WE CAN DO, BUT I DON'T WANT A HOTSPOT TO WAIT IN A HOUSEHOLD FOR SIX MONTHS BEFORE WE LOOK AT PICKING IT UP OR HOWEVER THAT WORKS.

I DON'T KNOW, DR. MCFARLAND, ON THE ANALYTICS OF THAT, BUT WHATEVER IT IS, WHEN DO WE START PICKING THEM UP OR ASKING? OR WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP IN THIS?

>> I THINK FOR US, IT WILL PROBABLY BE GOOD FOR US SOMETIME PROBABLY THE LAST WEEK OF JUNE TO BRING BACK JUST A HIGH-LEVEL OVERVIEW OF, HERE IS WHAT OUR VIRTUAL LEARNING HAS BEEN UP TO THIS POINT AND HERE'S THE USAGE WITH ALL OF OUR DEVICES, WITH OUR ONLINE LEARNING PLATFORM, ALL OF THAT, AND JUST GIVE YOU AN OVERVIEW OF THAT BEFORE WE MAKE ANY LONG-TERM PURCHASES.

AGAIN, THIS IS JUST FOR A LEASE RIGHT HERE.

BUT FOR LONG-TERM PURCHASES, I DO BELIEVE THAT WE NEED THAT KIND OF ANALYTICS, SO I THINK IT'D BE BENEFICIAL FOR US TO BRING THAT BACK TO YOU AT A BOARD MEETING, PROBABLY THE LAST PART OF-

>> THANK YOU, DR. MCFARLAND.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? IF NOT, THIS ITEM IS ALSO A POSSIBLE ACTION ITEM.

IS THERE A MOTION?

PLEASE THANK THEM FOR THE PRESENTATION AND LET THEM KNOW THAT WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING ALL THE COOL STUFF AND WE EXPECT MR. GRASSIA TO REPORT BACK AS WELL AT THE END OF THIS SUMMER.

NOW WE MOVE TO OUR AGENDA ITEM 5.3, PURCHASE OF LETTERMAN JACKETS FOR STUDENTS, DR. MCFARLAND?

>> MADAM PRESIDENT AND BOARD MEMBERS, WHAT WE KNOW IS THAT THE SPRING SEMESTER REALLY CAME TO AN ABRUPT END AND ACTUALLY DURING THE MIDDLE AND AT THE BEGINNING OF MANY SEASONS OF STUDENTS WHO WERE SOPHOMORES OR JUNIORS, AND SOME CASES SENIORS WHO WOULD HAVE POSSIBLY LETTERED DURING THEIR SENIOR YEAR.

THESE STUDENTS, OF COURSE, WITHOUT US TAKING BOARD ACTION AND WITHOUT US MAKING ADMINISTRATIVE DECISION TO MOVE FORWARD AND AWARD THEM LETTERMAN JACKETS, MAY GRADUATE WITHOUT ACTUALLY HAVING THAT AS A BENEFIT.

WE THOUGHT IT PRUDENT THAT WE BRING THIS ITEM TO THE BOARD FOR DISCUSSION AND JUST TO GET BOARD'S PERSPECTIVE ON HOW WE HANDLE THE LETTERMAN JACKET ISSUE, OUR RECOMMENDATION IS FOR US TO GRANT LETTERMAN JACKETS TO STUDENTS WHO HAVE EITHER PARTICIPATED IN

[01:20:06]

PARTICIPATED IN THOSE SPORTS AT THE WE WANTED TO JUST BRING THAT TO THE BOARD JUST FOR YOUR CONVERSATION TO GET FROM YOU, WHAT YOUR WILL IS RELATIVE TO LETTERMAN JACKETS FOR THOSE SPORTS AND NOT ONLY SPORTS BUT ALL THE OTHER ACTIVITIES THAT STUDENTS WOULD HAVE PARTICIPATED IN NORMALLY HAD THE PANDEMIC NOT OCCURRED.

>> THANK YOU, DR. MCFARLAND.

ARE THERE ANY COMMENT OR QUESTIONS FROM THE BOARD? WELL, I WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU.

THIS HAS BEEN MY SOAPBOX ABOUT SUPPORTING THE STUDENTS DURING THE CLOSURE AND TRYING TO MAKE SURE THEY HAVE ALL THEIR MEMORABILIA AND THE MEMORIES AND DIFFERENT SENTIMENTS THAT THEY HAVE MISSED ON SO I APPRECIATE THE THOUGHTFULNESS OF BRINGING THIS TO THE AGENDA.

IF THERE ARE NO OTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS, IT IS A POSSIBLE ACTION ITEM.

IS THERE A MOTION?

>> I MOVE THAT WE ACCEPT THE ACTIONS BY THE DISTRICT TO PURCHASE THE LETTER JACKETS FOR STUDENTS IN THE 11TH AND 12TH GRADE WHO HAVE LETTERED IN SPORTS OR EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES AS PRESENTED.

>> THANK YOU. WE HAVE A MOTION FROM DR. MAYFIELD.

IS THERE A SECOND?

I'M SO EXCITED FOR OUR STUDENTS.

THIS MOVES US TO AGENDA 5.4, GUARANTEED MAXIMUM PRICE FOR MULTIPURPOSE INDOOR PRACTICE FACILITIES AT CHS AND NCHS. DR. MCFARLAND.

>> MADAM PRESIDENT AND BOARD MEMBERS, WE'RE DEFINITELY ENTERING SOME EXCITING TIMES AS IT RELATES TO BUILDING IN CROWLEY ISD.

WE'RE DEFINITELY EXCITED TO SEE THAT WE HAVE OUR CTE BUILDING ALL ON TRACK AND ON PACE AND WE HAVE SEVERAL OTHER BUILDINGS THAT ARE DEFINITELY IN THE PIPE TO BE BUILT.

TWO OF THOSE BUILDINGS WILL BE THE BUILDING FOR OUR MULTIPURPOSE INDOOR PRACTICE FACILITY BOTH AT CROWLEY HIGH AND AT NORTH CROWLEY HIGH.

I BELIEVE THAT MR. FISHER AND MR. REAVES ARE PREPARED TO ADDRESS THIS ITEM.

I BELIEVE MR. FISHER WILL BE LEADING THE DISCUSSION AROUND THE GUARANTEED MAXIMUM PRICE FOR OUR MULTIPURPOSE CENTER. MR. FISHER.

>> YES, SIR. GOOD EVENING AGAIN MADAM BOARD PRESIDENT, MADAM BOARD VICE PRESIDENT, DISTINGUISHED MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, DR. MCFARLAND.

TONIGHT AGAIN, DR. MCFARLAND AS YOU ALLUDED TO, WE ARE EXTREMELY PLEASED TO BRING TO THE BOARD AN ACTION ITEM TO APPROVE THE GMP OR THE GUARANTEED MAXIMUM PRICE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF TWO CROWLEY ISD INDOOR MULTIPURPOSE FACILITIES.

THE GMP COST, AS YOU'LL SEE ON YOUR BOARD EXHIBIT IS $10.8 MILLION, $10,797,042 MILLION TO BE EXACT.

JUST TO ADD A LITTLE CONTEXT TO THAT NUMBER, OUR ORIGINAL ORDER OF MAGNITUDE PRICING THAT WAS PRESENTED BY OUR CONSTRUCTION MANAGER FOR PROJECTS REALLY OF SIMILAR SCOPE AND SIZE WAS APPROXIMATELY $14 MILLION.

WE'RE REALLY EXCITED TO COME IN FAVORABLE TO THAT ANTICIPATED AMOUNT.

WHAT WE KNOW IS, WE HAD ABOUT 160 SUBS THAT ACTUALLY BID ON THESE PROJECTS AND WE BELIEVE THAT THE BENEFIT OF SUCH A COMPETITIVE PRICING ENVIRONMENT REALLY IS REFLECTED IN THE PRICING THAT WE RECEIVED.

THIS IS A 12-MONTH PROJECT AND IF APPROVED, OUR INTENT IS TO PRESENT THE NOTICE TO PROCEED INSTRUMENT TO THE CONTRACTOR ON TOMORROW, MAY 29TH, 2020.

THAT CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION.

IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS, I WILL ANSWER THEM.

>> ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FOR MR. FISHER? IF THERE NOT ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS, THIS IS A POSSIBLE ACTION ITEM.

IS THERE A MOTION?

>> I'D LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION FOR THE APPROVAL OF THE GMP FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE MULTIPURPOSE INDOOR PRACTICE FACILITIES

>> IN THE ABSENCE OF MISLEADING NOTE, THE MOTION PASSES.

>> MS. HALL?

>> YES. MR. GRASSIA?

>> I JUST WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT I REALLY APPRECIATE.

I KNOW THAT NOT ONLY THE FOOTBALL ATHLETICS WILL APPRECIATE THIS BAND, THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS THAT WILL APPRECIATE THIS FACILITY.

HAVING SEEN FIRSTHAND WHEN MY DAUGHTER MARCHED INSIDE ONE OF THESE PRACTICE FACILITIES AT UT IT MAKES A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE THAT A CHILD IS NOT GOING OUT TO 102 DEGREE WEATHER FOUR HOURS AT A TIME AND TRYING TO LEARN EITHER A SET IN BAND, OR PRACTICE MOVES IN FOOTBALL, OR WHATEVER IT IS, AND I REALLY WANT TO THANK EVERYONE FOR APPROVING THIS AND I THINK THIS IS A GREAT ASSET FOR CISD.

>> THANK YOU, MR. GRASSIA.

I ECHO YOUR SENTIMENTS.

I THINK CROWLEY ISD, YOU ALREADY KNOW, IS A FAST START DISTRICT AND I'M HAPPY THAT WE'RE HAVING ALL OF THE ACCESSORIES THAT GO ALONG WITH THAT.

SO CONGRATULATIONS.

I'M EXCITED, CAN'T WAIT TO SEE.

ALL RIGHT, THAT INCLUDES OUR CONSIDERATION AND POSSIBLE ACTION ITEMS. WE'RE NOW MOVING TO FUTURE ACTION ITEMS.

[6.0 Future Action Item(s)]

AGENDA ITEM 6.1, COVID-19 EMERGENCY RESPONSE ADDENDUM TO TRANSPORTATION VENDOR CONTRACT. DR. MCFARLAND.

>> SO MADAM PRESIDENT AND BOARD MEMBERS, WE KNOW THAT AS COVID-19 HAS IMPACTED OUR SCHOOL, A LITTLE SCHOOL YEAR, SCHOOL DAYS AS RELATED TO PHYSICAL PRESENCE ON CAMPUS, WE KNOW THAT IT CREATED AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO HAVE SOME MODIFICATIONS IN CONTRACTS THAT WE HAVE THROUGH OUT THE DISTRICT.

SO WE HAVE MR. FISHER HERE TO TALK TO YOU TONIGHT ABOUT SOME MODIFICATIONS THAT WE'VE MADE TO ONE CONTRACT IN PARTICULAR. SO MR. FISHER.

>> THANK YOU AGAIN, DR. MCFARLAND.

GOOD EVENING AGAIN, MADAM BOARD PRESIDENT, MADAM BOARD VICE PRESIDENT, DISTINGUISHED MEMBERS OF THE BOARD.

WITH REGARD TO OUR TRANSPORTATION SERVICES AGREEMENT WITH OUR CURRENT PROVIDER, DURHAM SCHOOL SERVICES, THE AGREEMENT WAS EXECUTED ORIGINALLY ON AUGUST 15TH, 2017.

IN THAT AGREEMENT, THERE IS A RISK MITIGATION, PROVISION IF YOU WILL, WHAT THE AGREEMENT CONTEMPLATES WHAT IS REFERRED TO AS A CHANGE OF SCOPE AND SERVICES IN THE EVENT THAT THE DISTRICT'S MINIMUM NUMBER OF OPERATING DAYS FALLS BELOW 171 DAYS.

EXECUTED AGREEMENT IS ACTUALLY ONE OF YOUR BOARD EXHIBIT.

I ATTEMPTED TO HIGHLIGHT THAT VERBIAGE TO DRAW YOUR ATTENTION TO IT.

AGAIN, THE AGREEMENT CALLS FOR THE GOOD FAITH RENEGOTIATION OF ANY AND ALL APPLICABLE RATES AND FEES IF THE REQUEST BY THE CONTRACTOR IS MADE.

I'VE ALSO ATTEMPTED TO ATTACH THE FORMAL REQUEST BY THE CONTRACTOR FOR THE RENEGOTIATION IN YOUR EXHIBIT.

ON MARCH 18, AS EVERYBODY IS WELL AWARE AND WARRANTED BY THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC CLOSURE OF SCHOOLS, WE RECEIVED THAT REQUEST FROM THE CONTRACTOR.

AFTER OBTAINING LEGAL ADVICE AND LEGAL GUIDANCE, WE AGREED TO AN ADDENDUM TO OUR TRANSPORTATION SERVICES CONTRACT.

IN THIS ADDENDUM, THE CONTRACTOR FOR THE DURATION OF THE COVID-19 EXTENDED EMERGENCY SCHOOL CLOSURE AGREES TO IN LIEU OF PROVIDING JUST PUPIL TRANSPORTATION SERVICES, THE CONTRACTOR AGREES TO MAKE ALL OF ITS EMPLOYEES AVAILABLE FOR ALTERNATIVE SERVICES.

[01:30:04]

THEY'VE BEEN AN ESSENTIAL PART OF OUR FOOD SERVICE DELIVERY BOTH IN DELIVERING THE MEALS TO VARIOUS LOCATIONS AND ACTUALLY PASSING UP THE MEALS TO CROWLEY ISD STUDENTS.

THEY'VE ALSO AGREED TO HELP US IN OUR SUMMER PROJECTS, MOVING FURNITURE AND EQUIPMENT, AND OTHER DUTIES AS REQUIRED.

WE SO APPRECIATE THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF THOSE WORKERS.

WE HAVE AGREED TO COMPENSATE THE CONTRACTOR AT A RATE OF 85 PERCENT OF THE AVERAGE DAILY CHARGES AS MEASURED BY EACH PAYING VOICE THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY RECEIVED BY OUR DISTRICT BETWEEN THE MONTHS OF JULY 2019 AND REALLY FEBRUARY, THE END OF FEBRUARY 2020.

IT IS OUR INTENT THAT THIS GOOD FAITH ACTUALLY, FIRST AND FOREMOST, ENSURE THAT OUR DISTRICT HAS THE APPROPRIATE NUMBER OF QUALIFIED BUS DRIVERS TO SERVE OUR STUDENTS WHENEVER THE PANDEMIC PASSES, WHICH IS HOPEFULLY SOON, AND TO COMMUNICATE OUR LOYALTY TO THE PEOPLE THAT SERVE OUR STUDENTS BY ENSURING THAT ALL DURHAM TRANSPORTATION TEAM MEMBERS OF RECORD AS OF MARCH 16 CONTINUE TO RECEIVE THEIR REGULAR RATES OF PAY FOR ALL REGULAR ROUTES THAT THEY WOULD HAVE ACTUALLY OPERATED AND ROUTINELY WORK.

THAT CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION.

I'LL ENTERTAIN ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MAY HAVE.

>> ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FROM THE BOARD? WELL, I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO DURHAM SERVICES FOR THE EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE AND FOR STEPPING UP AND HELPING US WITH ALL THE MEALS AND STAYING ON DUTY AND ALSO THE STAFF THAT DEDICATED THEIR TIME TO MAKE SURE THAT BUSINESS IS GOING FOR OUR STUDENTS AND THAT THEIR NEEDS WERE MET.

I WAS ACTUALLY RUNNING WITH A FRIEND AND THEY'RE LIKE, "WHERE ALL THESE SCHOOL BUSES GOING?" I'M LIKE, "I THINK THEY'RE GOING TO SERVE MEALS." WHEN I LOOKED AT THE TIME OF DAY THAT IT WAS, WE DEFINITELY STILL FELT AND SAW THEIR PRESENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS FOR MR. FISHER? THANK YOU, MR. FISHER.

>> THANK YOU, MA'AM.

>> LET'S DO OUR AGENDA ITEM 6.2, CUSTODIAL VENDOR CONTRACT. DR. MCFARLAND?

>> SO MADAM PRESIDENT AND BOARD MEMBERS, AGAIN, AS IT RELATES TO THE CUSTODIAL VENDOR CONTRACT, I BELIEVE THAT MR. REAVES IS GOING TO BE ADDRESSING THIS ITEM. MR. REAVES.

>> DR. MCFARLAND, THIS IS MS. POWERS. I'LL ACTUALLY BE TAKING OVER FOR HIM. IT'S OKAY.

>> ALL RIGHT.

>> GOOD AFTERNOON, VICE PRESIDENT, MS. HALL, PRESIDENT DAVIS, DR. MCFARLAND, AND MEMBERS OF THE BOARD.

THE CURRENT PROVIDER THAT CROWLEY ISD HAS IN PLACE FOR CUSTODIAL SERVICES IS ABM INDUSTRIES.

WE HAVE BEEN PLEASED WITH THEIR PERFORMANCE AND THEIR LEVEL OF SERVICE, AND WE WOULD ACTUALLY LIKE TO CONTINUE THIS ENGAGEMENT.

AS SUCH, ABM PROVIDED CROWLEY ISD WITH THE FOURTH ADDENDUM TO THE EXISTING AGREEMENT TO INCORPORATE THE ADDITIONAL CISD LOCATIONS THAT WILL BE COMING ONLINE FOR THE 2020-2021 FISCAL YEAR WHICH INCLUDES THE NEW EGG BORN, THE NEW MAINTENANCE BUILDING, AND THE NEW CTE LOCATION.

WITHIN YOUR EXHIBITS, YOU WILL FIND THE ORIGINAL TWO-YEAR AGREEMENT THAT COVERS THE 2016-18 YEARS WITH THE OPTION TO RENEW FOR THREE YEARS IN ONE-YEAR INCREMENTS.

ALSO ATTACHED IS THE FOURTH ADDENDUM WITH THE PRICING RIGHT THERE FOR YOUR REVIEW.

THIS WILL BE THE THIRD AND FINAL OPTIONAL YEAR AVAILABLE FOR THIS CONTRACT.

THE FISCAL YEAR BUDGETARY IMPACT FOR 2020-2021 WILL BE $3,520,584.

IF YOU BREAK THAT DOWN MONTHLY, THAT'S $293,381.96.

>> AS I WAS PREPARING ALL OF MY DOCUMENTATION FOR THIS BOARD AGENDA, I VERIFIED WITH THE VENDOR AND I WAS ADVISED THAT THE DISTRICT ACTUALLY RECEIVES A ONE PERCENT REBATE LESS THE EXPENSES, IF THE AMOUNT IS PAY BEFORE THE DUE DATE EACH MONTH.

AFTER DOING SOME RESEARCH,

[01:35:02]

I NOTICED THAT THE DISTRICT WAS ACTUALLY RECEIVING ONLY HALF OF A PERCENT OF THAT REBATE.

WHERE THEY LESS THE OPERATIONAL EXPENSES BEFORE WE MAKE THE PAYMENT.

SO AFTER SPEAKING WITH THE VENDOR, THEY HELD THEIR BARGAIN, AND SO THEY CREDITED THE SCHOOL DISTRICT WITH APPROXIMATELY $529,000 WORTH OF CREDIT FOR CUSTODIAL SERVICES.

SO THIS CREDIT WILL BE USED FOR A NEW OPEN INVOICES UNTIL THE AMOUNT IS DEPLETED.

THERE IS NO ACTION AT THIS TIME, AS I WILL ACTUALLY HAVE THIS AS A CONSENT AGENDA ITEM IN JUNE OF 2020 AT THE BOARD MEETING.

I WILL ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU HAVE.

>> THAT'S A GOOD CATCH, MS. POWERS.

>> YES, RIGHT.

>> THANK YOU, MS. POWERS. ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS, MS. BENTON?

>> JUST SAYING THAT WAS A GOOD CATCH.

>> THANK YOU.

>> I AGREE. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING OUR COINS, AS THEY SAY, HERE IN THE DISTRICT.

THAT'S A LOT OF MANY THAT WE WERE NOT GETTING.

ARE THERE COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS FROM THE BOARD? THIS IS A FUTURE ACTION ITEM, SO WE WILL SEE IT AGAIN.

THANK YOU MS. POWERS.

>> THANK YOU.

>> WE ARE NOW AT OUR AGENDA ITEM 6.3, TRASH AND RECYCLE SERVICES, REQUEST FOR PROPRIETY.

>> I WAS GOING TO LISTEN IN TO THE BOARD MEETING BECAUSE THEY'RE ANNOUNCING THE NEW NORTH CROWLEY NINTH

>> COULD YOU PLEASE MUTE YOUR PHONES IF YOU'RE NOT SPEAKING AND NOT A PART OF BOARD MEETING? PLEASE MUTE YOUR PHONE.

>> THANK YOU.

>> ALL RIGHT. GO AHEAD, MS. HALL.

>> ALL RIGHT. FUTURE ACTION ITEM, TRASH AND RECYCLING SERVICES, REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS, DR. MCFARLAND?

>> THANK YOU AGAIN, AND GOOD AFTERNOON, VICE-PRESIDENT MS. HALL, PRESIDENT DAVIS, DR. MCFARLAND, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD.

SO THE CURRENT TRASH AND RECYCLE SERVICES FOR CROWLEY ISD, THE COMPANY THAT WE UTILIZE IS REPUBLIC SERVICES.

OUR CURRENT CONTRACT WITH THIS VENDOR WILL END ON JUNE 30TH, 2020 WITH NO OPTIONAL YEARS AVAILABLE.

AS SUCH, NEW RIFT WAS ADVERTISED.

THE PERIOD OF PERFORMANCE FOR THIS NEW RFP WILL BE FROM JULY 1ST, 2020 THROUGH JUNE 30TH, 2021, WITH THE OPTION TO RENEW FOR THREE ADDITIONAL YEARS AND ONE-YEAR INCREMENTS.

THERE WERE TWO RESPONSIVE PROPOSALS AND ONE NO BE IT RECEIVED, TWO RESPONSIVE PROPOSALS WERE EVALUATED ACCORDING TO THE RFP AWARDING CRITERIA.

AFTER CAREFUL EVALUATION OF THE RFP SUBMISSIONS, REPUBLIC SERVICES WAS SELECTED AS THE TRASH AND RECYCLE VENDOR FOR ENSUING THE FISCAL YEAR.

PLEASE FIND THE ATTACHED MASTER TABULATION SHEET FOR YOUR REVIEW.

THE FISCAL YEAR 2020/2021 BUDGETARY IMPACT WILL BE $247,525.20 THIS PRICE DOES INCLUDE THE NEW LOCATIONS THAT WILL GO ONLINE JULY 1ST, 2020.

THIS AMOUNT, HOWEVER, DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY ADDITIONAL PICKUP REQUESTS FOR TRASH AND/OR RECYCLED SERVICES THAT MAY BE REQUESTED THROUGHOUT THE FISCAL YEAR AS THAT IS AN ADDITIONAL COST FOR THOSE SERVICES.

AT THIS TIME, THERE IS NO ACTION NEEDED AS THIS IS A FUTURE ACTION ITEM AND IT WILL GO TO THE BOARD IN JUNE OF 2020 AS CONSENT.

I WILL ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MAY HAVE.

>> THANK YOU, MS. POWERS. ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS FROM THE BOARD? THERE ARE NO QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS.

THIS IS A FUTURE ACTION ITEM AND WE WILL SEE IT AGAIN NEXT MONTH.

THIS MOVES US TO AGENDA ITEM 6.4, THE 2020/2021 EDUCATION SERVICE IN REGION 11, CROWLEY ISD RENEWAL CONTRACT SUMMARY AND MASTER INTO LOCAL AGREEMENT. DR. MCFARLAND.
