They attended their first contest in February the houston regional in finished second out of 24 competing units in the [scholastic] a class By only nine one hundredths of a point their only defeat of the season at the [end] of February they traveled to San antonio Regional where they were first out of 28 units?

Champion, and I received this awesome graphic That was actually created by one of our [mahaffey] teachers Kathy Nowak that beautifully tells the story from a teacher's perspective Of what has occurred in our client isd community over the last several months what brings us joy [as] we look at this graphic for a couple of things first of all the Clear connection [between] our shared vision our guiding documents and our strategic plan But also the collaborative design process [that] has been absolutely instrumental and at the heart of every part of this promise to purpose story Every step has been intentionally and thoughtfully driven by the Collective voice of our client [isd] community and we are proud [to] say [that] our strategic plan that will hopefully be adopted this evening is Definitely no exception to that.
That's right in fact this team of 70 outstanding folks reviewed over  Pieces of Written Feedback from our community and sat at the design table [there] remembering that meeting and they're like oh [God] [for] that [matter] that is a design table with current client [eyes] these students to ensure they listen to the unique and diverse perspectives Of our community throughout the strategic planning process we learned together in a variety of ways reading Innovators Mindset Wandering through current client asti campuses and classrooms reviewing drafts of our guiding documents as they were under construction Capitalizing on and honoring the various experiences each member brought to the team to capture the strategic planning process our outstanding Communications team put together this quick video.
Let's take a look by my [own] [skill] is trying to be on the forefront of doing things a Lot of hard work have it possibly be a lot of fun And most importantly it's going to be critical for the success of our students this becomes a reality It means shifting the way we do business Life is going to probably get everyone to be kind of talking the same talk about. Why are we here? We're here to educate to have an urgency Educate our students. They're like no puzzle is complete in every stakeholder we have to learn with a Continue to learn that the wooden station really does matter is we do have to continue to learn all that we do [beautifully], [they're] learning having very individualized and personalized [paths] where students are able to really explore their passions and engage in learning and just reach their full potential and artists teachers just Facilitating that learning.
I think they are going to be excited to see new kinds of teaching Innovative ways [that] get them excited and motivated thinking outside the box love that idea of all the teachers [knowing] each child by name [ministers] knowing the children knowing what their needs and strikes are just does someone care about you like They don't even know no. They didn't know me or any of the other students before we walked into this district But they're dedicated to making the district better in that's just I'm purely honored I have such a great group of people to support me. They really cared about Everyone individually about how they how they would create intel with me. How are they succeed along? With how they what they want to do in their future And how much they care about all of [us] [individually] to clearly believe the [elections] not just a [feeling] I'm very care for all the type of my heart My name is showing that every student enters with the promise or an [excellence] was promises That literally makes me want to jump up and down when I hear kids talking about how excited They are that our community cares about them a couple weeks ago on our last strategic planning session each of the teams shared their Recommendations for the Targets and [strategies] connected to our five areas of focus Pathways challenge equity leadership and continuous improvement [it] was exciting to see how the community feedback those 1,300 pieces of feedback Had really been used to improve [the] plan and there were definitely some common themes that emerged you can see some of those depicted here Are things like personalized learning the importance of relationships and the use of quality feedback to drive future? Success as I said from the beginning our goal is to [have] a [strategic] plan that fits on one page something our entire community can easily identify Explain and share with others we wanted an image that captures not only the key areas of focus for our plan But also the connections between our shared vision and our guiding documents profile of a learner profile the leader and [high-quality] teaching So we put together our collective work into three big strategic plan priorities, and you see them there Reimagine Learning Cultivate Talent and build community Connecting specific targets and strategies that the team identified for each area focus for example under Reimagine learning you'll find Personalizing learning building a flexible and challenging curriculum and standards based evaluation under build community you'll find relationships mentoring and partnerships engaging educating and equipping families and cultural responsiveness under Cultivate Talent which means cultivating talent in everyone Students staff and [families] you'll find building a best-in-class leadership pipeline We celebrate again that we were one of seven districts in the state select about the [Holdsworth] Center [we] look forward to our continued partnership network out You'll also see feedback loops and self reflection as well as targeted professional Learning and very exciting you will see that the threat of innovation is what will continue to drive all of our work inclined isd As we called out also [relationship] specifically because that came out again and again from the work of the team As well as we wanted to clearly acknowledge that resources are needed and in order to fuel this plan and so we'll need all sorts of promise to purpose investors to partner with us on this journey [and] bring our shared vision to life and Finally as you can see at the center our shared vision will always be at the heart of everything that we do Pointing to promised a purpose and our guiding documents will surround the work as I literally guide our work together over the next several years So with all being said we believe the folks involved in this work are truly doing the most outstanding Leaders in our client is [Dee] community in countless ways we've witnessed them living our profile of a leader And we're so grateful for them at this time With the promise [to] purpose strategic planning team please stand and be recognized and celebrated for your service to the students apply Now come on up for a picture guys yell out his work come on Come on out here that leg throw did the board come on up too as well.

Thank y'all Congratulations to everyone in the district. We had a lot of winners here tonight My name's Melissa stewart my husband and I moved into Klein district about 16 years ago It has only been in the last two years that we've actually had a student in the district We're very proud and we wow when I grew up in Houston my eagles up at Eisenhower were fighting the climb Forrest Eagles But it's all good now with all one My personal background is I am currently serving as an executive [director] for the Eastern [restaurant] association previous to [that] I've worked for about Ten years in public education with the County department of education doing surveys and and Just reports and analysis of different districts at request. I worked at the Americorps group and with various after-school programming so I'm here today for a real specific and it's such It's really important to my family and I think it's important to a lot [of] [families] [I] [also] recognize that when I see the news truck outside.
I know when they show up on my doorstep It's not been a good day Typically unless it's not week or James beard awards of another great it's often things like hey, just you know somebody got shot or something, so But that's what I want to talk to you about is back in March You're a radical change and in approving some next Year's school calendar and school schedules [y'all] were absolutely been there's no question. I'm not questioning your ability to do that. [I] understand the district of innovation. I made longer [days] earlier Stars We have a later winter break we have the same end time so overall the school calendar itself has expanded at how much time on the Calendar that it takes up. We've lost three instructional days. You know did [a] survey two of them went out I? [track] I participate in the first one when I saw the second one.
It looked like the same thing I didn't think would be fair [for] my family to vote twice so I didn't but I did receive both of them I Spoke to run webster about this particular complaint as well as the administrator at my daughter's [school] Means I'm here is when y'all made those changes in March Nothing came out Per usual what I see with the district bad because I followed school calendars for years They [just] get posted on the website you go check it out when you're ready Well that works most years because you're following the fourth Monday law By the district of innovation though, you didn't do [that]. You don't have to You also have certain expectations. We're going to get out a couple weeks before it you know week before Christmas We'll have that week until after That up until New Year's day, and that everyone's right back to school right back to work And then hopefully we're all getting out as close to the world as possible. How about this time last year I had the privilege and I continued have the privilege of planning a vacation with five households three generations and [it] is a truly privileged vacation. So don't get me wrong.
I'm talking from a great place of privilege We're going to Disney world if you ever planned over at Disney [World] vacation They're very expensive and if you can you want to plan on a year out because a year out you can get the best rooms You get better rates you get to make your choices way back in so that's what my family did We wanted to wait to the end of the summer [to] let some of the other crowds go So the kids could have their camp we had some custody issues. We wanted to make sure we were being respectful So I looked at our counter [a] fourth Monday here. We go Let's make sure we're back in time to meet the teacher that Thursday before no problem. Did everything made all the arrangements [we're] all good to go Well, Lo and behold just on a whim And I truly mean a whim because I used the calendars of the different districts in the Houston area for some of our Association planning, I went in looking saying how many [cars] is out yet? Which is when I found out about three weeks ago that [in] fact my vacation was during the first week of school [a] bit of a problem [so] as a surprise I was kind of where and I'm very very frustrated and I will tell you why as A family I had to rearrange [of] vacation not the end of the world cost me a little bit of money Didn't quite get everything I wanted not the end of the world [we're] still far enough out that most of our work arrangements were still able to change however as a business person in Houston who works with the [company] to employ our Students in our students families this impacts internships jobs camp travel because it cuts to the arrangement These changes while hopefully they will have the result you want They are big impact on our community daycares churches all across the board when y'all opted to make those changes you needed to optimize them very public, and that's what didn't happen as I started working through this in my frustration what I've heard time and time again was Much a few days beginning of the school year, [not] a big deal I Was appalled that is not.
How we do it in my house You know we have 50,000 kids here [in] climb Every nine days Ms. Just 5% of [that] students Allocation from the state that adds up to the bottom line. Which is critical but everything we talked about today Innovation the plan the purpose if they don't show up, we got nothing That's my goal. I moved that we have a sense of the board to allow the speaker to continue to finish [her] point Thank you so much. I [got] it's on so long um so Nothing happens if the kids don't show up. That's pretty cool. So another thing when I was weren't perfect attendance household We're really proud of that Sally is finishing up her first grade year. She's not missed a day of school We've been very blessed that she's not had an illness that causes that but we do a lot of planning on our part, too We go to bed on time. We eat right what who's doing? What who's got? What if there's something going on? We make sure that her getting to school on time for the entire day every day [happens] And just quickly quick antidote just to let you know she has the great privilege of running into one of the tolls at playgrounds She was so full of merriment awesome, so I [get] the call from the nurse and we're having a bad moment And you know bleeding those slowing up eyes and so definite [ursus] of all Let [me] come get her she wouldn't come home because even though we both assured her it would not mess with her perfect attendance She didn't want to leave that's the citizen amazing.
That's the values at my household We can't Have our values and support the district as I want our families to do if we don't have that information [I] get a ton of stuff from y'all. I follow your Twitter feed. I haven't pushed to my phone I know you're 90 seconds I know when cline Whatever school was in the basketball finals And there were a lot [of] team did great in the spelling bee this should be on everything It needs to be in the newsletter going out if there's no reason that we can't make this super duper public It's a really easy fit, but because we're changing both. How we're doing the calendar next year in so many radical ways and The time our parents in our community need to know this. I'm just asking that y'all talk to the communications department [this] isn't the same old same old We need it everywhere needs to be in a Tuesday folder up on the website just [you] know a tweet once a week Hey, did you know we're changing the calendar these are really easy things to do, but they will have a big impact I think all learners overall Okay, thank you freezing, right Mr.
. President. I'm not going to speak to the to the particular matter because I know we have constraints on that, but I do want [to] recognize and for myself Give my appreciation for your willingness to come and speak to us [I] really wish I think we all do more citizens would take time to do that because Your voice in our communities. I appreciate you stepping forward as an individual board member I appreciate you stepping forward and bringing your matter to our attention. Thank you. Thank you Okay, the first item for consideration and approval is the strategic plan may have a motion any discussion Dr.. [King] any other information [just] very quickly just to make sure that we're all in the same page as to what you're adopting so I know there are several Pieces sent to you, [so] in terms of what the strategic plan is are the three bit? Thank you, or are the three big blocks that are joined by the Golden thread of innovation? so Cultivate Talent to Reimagine learning and build community and then the three bullets under each of those that's our strategic plan there was a there was a whole lot of pages of Detail work that we'll have teams working on in terms of how do we support that and make that happen? But in literally once that's adopted assuming you adopt that you will you will have? Adopted everything that's on our systems diagrams that we have listed here such want to be clear What exactly was being we're recommending adoptions not? Thank you Any other discussion well I just like to extend a compliment to the district and to the committee Those that showed up tonight, and those that couldn't show up tonight [for] [taking] this seriously because This this is this is important stuff in the last couple of weeks, I've entered into a program It's going to kick off here pretty soon where? We will have visitation to Harris County Juvenile Hall students 7 10 to 17 kids that are incarcerated in Juvenile hall because something went wrong [Robert] Heinlein a science fiction writer 40 years ago said it's impossible to have a juvenile delinquent by definition because juvenile is a definition of someone who's too young to understand the reason and delinquency is a state that took a certain amount of [reason] and commission in order to to create that that crime at whatever the offense is and so I see this as a Step in that direction to help us capture those who are bound to fall through the cracks [and] if we can through the strategy and [the] implementation and the tactical implementation and and the the Dedication and attitude that we saw displayed on that video with our employees and our citizenry [if] we can Keep that at the forefront as we keep everything else at the Forefront I think it's going to have great impact on the district and on our family Thank you all those in favor opposed motion carries 6:04 the Trustees will now conduct the first reading of those modifications to let the board policy pursuance it has the update 107 as follows CDC other revenues grants from Private sources Cj contracted Services DC plus employment practices the Faa probationary contracts suspension terminations during contract DFb a term contract suspension termination during contract DFC a continuing contract suspension termination Faa attendants culinary attendants FSa a Wellness and health services physical examinations ge relations with parent organizations with any comments or questions from the board?

Next we'll have the approval of fund to support Community partners at events and have a motion I Second any discussion all right and again. I think this is addressed to Ellen [we're] fine with The whole argument or thinking of taking tax payer funds and supporting? another entity Because these entities that we're supporting are directly related to promoting the interest of the district that is correct what you're doing by this resolution is Considering the benefits that these entities provide directly to the district [into] district students and declaring that a district public purpose is served by these entities and by doing so you are fine using tax dollars to support the causes and quick [follow-up], and I don't think it's really part of this but What what is our? gatekeeping system to keep us from getting into A lobbying effort Even if it we were unaware we thought it was this and it turned out to be That we do we review these do petitions come across your desk or through the to Dr.

Yes Thank you Will now move on to board comments, then we will adjourn this meeting before going on to the emergency second meeting I'll start with you [Miss] right mark Okay, quickly [as] I look at this chart And I think about all the work and all the thought and all the people that poured into that it is truly an amazing Feat thank you for everyone who is involved in it? it was very exciting to go to relay for life and See the community effort against cancer and the groups that were [there] and everyone that participated [as] the [community] A quick Community comment [bill] and I were [at] [a] scalp center 20 feet or so and Mitch was part of that with their involvement with scouts, and there was a surprise honoree for his bone his time of volunteering Is a big Niche volunteer? Amber still here, but it was just a great Celebratory night not only for the scout but for mitch and just a lot of things surrounding All the people that just helped make that school Success a lot of people sacrificing time and effort just tons of volunteers just you know Long's are so close around us, and [that] was a pretty special night [now] This is exactly so I'm not going to be brief.
Oh dear [surprised] So I spent the weekend with a couple that They've retired and left the district, but the wife used to teach in the district she taught it several districts there oil fields, so they moved around and she can be pretty direct in her criticisms and so we were talking about education and school and so on and so forth and She started going down this road, and I said well, you know I said well have it. How was [it] [at] [Cline]? She goes climb was the best Which is hard for her to say about anything? And I had that thought in my mind today this evening while we were going through the student and teacher recognitions from from nish and from Rock and then the student activity recognitions the Tommy Tunes and the flag team Mr.. Pilkington, and I attended the Cline oak Junior Air Force Rotc Banquet About a week and a half ago Saw the same thing even though Lamar [ward] if you if you read that little Summary there and the history behind it [a] recognition of the alumni the strategic planning recognition the recognition of the McDonald's and Glen Rock farm the shared Vision [and] then you put all that what we saw today in context of Mr.
. Wonderlic Stories of  [us] six months ago. He went through that and You see this and that and then you go to the slide that we have up promised the purpose and the innovation And you think of the innovation of our of our German forefathers? cultural forefathers and a farmer breaking apart in the field and having to come [up] with a solution to get the job done in that whole Sense of American Innovation, which to me from what I've seen in traveling around the world is distinct It's something that has become kind of almost culturally genetic within within the American culture to fix things [and] [we're] always fixing things doesn't mean that what we have isn't, right? But it also means it couldn't [be] better and so I credit Dr. Champion and the entire team and community underneath his direction for her being aware of that it kind of leads to improvement with the purpose and If you look at so if you look at just tonight [is] a one snapshot Microcosm of the Client community and these great parents are raising great kids and [yeah] We have problems as I alluded to earlier these kids at Juvenile. Hall ten year old kids Incarcerated in a seven story jail down on Commerce or prairie or wherever the heck it is down there 10 years old you [know] something broke Something broke and and we can't select the parable of the [lost] sheep.
We can't let that one go unattended while at the [same] [time] keeping the focus, so so I just All that was just kind of coming through my mind This evening, and I want to just pay special credit To the district and through your leadership Dr.. Champion. I know you're too humble to accept it For yourself, but to pass on to all those that are present here and that we're present today It's very proud. I think we have something special and we need to continue continue that thank you So I'll be a little brief. I thought was a wonderful meeting wonderful content. I've no further comment no, it was had a really good time both at the Air Force the military Ball and at the boy scout event is just amazing some of the things are [going] on [won't] forget your comments that boys don't know anything until they're 25 it's a but everything is great from the past and I am like wicked excited about the next five [years] We're sending the administrators back to school were you this whole tour foundation is So cool the things that they're going to be doing pulling the best the best Where our administrators are going to be going where all y'all are going to be going? Just the things I see just I was so excited after talking with the people and I couldn't even control It's like I'm calling up friends telling everything about it and just [good] luck for that.
It's like I'm geeking out on it, but I Just really think the most thing that is the most impressive to me is that we actually have the team to do it We have the vision to do it. This is not something. That's without reach and so I look at it as So you take hydrogen you know something in oxygen to things that are very flammable totally different, but you bring them together And you can make water the thing of life, and so that's where I see It's going with this you know caduceo Jenny could as [the] free gum and to [Dr.] champion Look forward to where it's going. I like where it's going It's kind of one of the things I even said it's like. I don't necessarily know where it's going, but I like it and So thank you You're coming, so real real briefly it is first I want to give a shout out to my team who was incredible with the frank stuff that that took place really outstanding We had like it's amazing that these people are looking at here or awake right now It's well done, but not only are they awake, but the work that they did Was outstanding and so so thank you – Judy Jenny Robert Thomas just for being here yourself Just always always keeping But thank you for for your work with the frank elementary piece but but really what I wanted to to call out tonight [is] we have some really cool things [going] on in the district? [and] if you think about the the image of our system that y'all adopted tonight with a strategic plan and the vision the middle and all those cool guiding documents It's really powerful and cool And I'm wicked excited about it [-] and the whole birthing and all that stuff is really great And so I think it is the [perfect] day for our our Incredible communications and planning team to have adorned the walls of the boardroom with the pictures that are behind our our folks who are in the audience right now and The reason that I think it's the perfect time is because with all of those adult things we have on that on that chart If we don't keep these things at the center of all of our work, then it's all for naught That every single thing every action we take in this school district has to be fueled by the students we have in our system and it's really easy to get caught [up] in the adult world that we we live in and forget what we're about and so I want to thank the the Communications and planning team for for surprising me this morning by this occurring because it's miraculous [and] it's it's miraculous because these are our students.
This is why we exist as a system. They're looking at us [right] now And this is what every action we take has to be centered around and so I'm just I'm so proud of Where we are where we're heading? [and] can't wait to see what happens with these guys is they move through our system from promise to purpose, so thanks Now actually as provided by the Texas government code the [board] of [Trustees] Will go into closed session for [a] brief closed session in accordance of section five five 1.07 one private consultation of the board's attorney regarding all matters is authorized by law Including [word] governance and five five one zero seven for discussing employment Evaluation or discipline of personnel including board Governance and including superintendent valuation contract now it could Maybe [retention], please right now 850 one the mini Clarity [board] of [Trustees] is reconvened and If there are no objections at 8:52 this meeting is adjourned Good evening now 850 2 p.
