APPROVED. NOW IT'S TIME FOR BOARD MEMBER COMMENT. WE'LL START WITH DR BAUER. YEAH.

THANK YOU. SO GOOD EVENING, EVERYBODY. UH I'D LIKE TO START BY THINKING OF THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE WRITTEN IN CONCERNING THE BALANCING ENROLLMENT EFFORT. THINK ME AND MY COLLEAGUES FOR REVERSING SOME OF THE PROPOSED CHANGES, AND I'D LIKE TO CLARIFY THAT THE THANKS SHOULD INSTEAD GO TO THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE BECAUSE THEY'RE THE GROUP. THAT ARE WORKING THE BOUNDARIES AT THIS POINT IN THE PROCESS WHILE WE WERE INVOLVED MUCH EARLIER IN SOME OF THE PROCESS SET UP RIGHT NOW, THE BOARD IS MOSTLY HANDS OFF. YEAH. SPEAKING OF THE OVERALL BOUNCING INVOLVEMENT PROCESS, I WOULD LIKE TO NOTE THAT SOME OF THE CHURN WE ARE SEEING WITH THE PROPOSED REBALANCING MAPS ARE DUE TO HOW EARLY THESE MAPS BEING RELEASED PUBLICLY. THE MAPS ARE BEING RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC FOR COMMENTS BEFORE TRANSPORTATION ANALYSIS HAS DONE BEFORE WE BOARD MEMBERS SEE THEM. I HEARD A COMMENT FOR STAFF MEMBER THERE IS ON THE ADVISORY TEAM THAT AFTER DISCUSSING AN AREA IN A COMMITTEE MEETING, THEY DRIVEN THROUGH IT AND REALIZED IT WASN'T THE WAY THEY HAD THOUGHT FROM THE DISCUSSION. SO THEY MADE A NOTE TO ADDRESS IT IN THE NEXT MEETING. BECAUSE OF THINGS LIKE THIS AND FROM PUBLIC INPUT AND TRANSPORTATION ANALYSIS. WE'VE ALREADY HAD SEVERAL REVISIONS TO THE PROPOSED BOUNDARIES. FROM LAST WEEK'S COMMUNITY EDUCATION FORUM. I'M EXPECTING MORE REVISIONS BEFORE THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE FINISHES. IT'S PART OF THE PROCESS. WHEN I LOOK AT THIS, I SEE THE PROCESS IS WORKING. THERE ARE TRADE OFFS IN RELEASING MAPS EARLIER OR LATER IN THE PROCESS. WE RELEASED MAPS EFFECTIVELY AS EARLY AS WE COULD, WHICH GAVE US BETTER TRANSPARENCY AND MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR PUBLIC INPUT AT THE COST OF THIS TURN, WE SEE. AND RILING PEOPLE UP EARLY AND THEN MAKE CASES UNNECESSARILY. CONSIDERING THE NUMBER OF COMPLAINTS THEY'VE BEEN ACCUSING US OF THE LACK OF TRANSPARENCY. COMPARED TO HAVING RECEIVED MORE OR LESS ZERO COMPLAINTS ABOUT RELEASING MAPS TOO EARLY. I THINK OUR CHOICE OF TIMING WAS CORRECT. AND I'D ALSO LIKE TO AGAIN. THANK THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE MEMBERS. FOR THIS WORK THAT THEY ARE DOING. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. DR HAROLD. THANK YOU, PRESIDENT ROBINSON. GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE. UM I WOULD ECHO DAVID'S COMMENTS. I THINK THEY WERE WELL THOUGHT OUT, AND I THINK THEY PORTRAY AFTER ACCOUNT OF. BALANCING ENROLLMENT EFFORT. UM REALLY QUICKLY. UM, I WANT TO SEND A RESOUNDING CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CLASS OF 2021.

I KNOW THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK WE'RE NOT LISTENING TO WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT THE BALANCING ENROLLMENT LIKE DAVID SAID. IT'S REALLY, REALLY EARLY IN THE PROCESS. BUT I MEAN, I'M KEEPING A LIST EVERY EMAIL.

UH TO, UM. JUST TO GET VACCINATED. THERE'S STILL A NUMBER OF PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO ARE RESISTANT TO GETTING VACCINATED. WE'RE SEEING A TREMENDOUS DOWNTURN AND, UM.

POSITIVITY RATE. UH AND OBVIOUSLY, SOME OF THAT IS DUE TO A SEASONS AND WE'RE OUTSIDE MORE THAN INSIDE. BUT AN EXTREMELY LARGE PORTION OF THIS IS DUE TO THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN VACCINATED. UM IT PROTECTS YOU AGAINST COVID AFFECTS OTHERS AROUND YOU AGAINST COVID AND. THE SIDE EFFECT PROFILE IS PRETTY MINIMAL. AND THE EFFICACY IS, UM, FAR AWAY AS GOOD AS ONE CAN SEE WITH ANY VACCINATION. DURING A GOOD FLU SEASON. WE MAY GET, UH MAYBE A 40 TO 50% CLINICAL RESPONSE, UM TO AVOID FLU, AND WE'RE LOOKING AT A VACCINE NOW. THAT PREVENTS, UM COVID IN 95% OF CASES. AND MORE IN SOME POPULATION GROUPS, SO PLEASE, LET'S KEEP OUR DIRECTION, MOVING FORWARD. AND FOR THOSE OF YOU, WHO ARE RELUCTANT GET VACCINATED. PLEASE. UM TALK TO YOUR DOCTORS. I'M SURE THEY WILL HAVE GOOD INFORMATION FOR YOU TO, UM. UH CHANGE YOUR MIND. YOU'VE BEEN BLOCKED IN ONE THING. I JUST WANT TO ADD. I'LL BE REAL QUICK WITH THIS. WE HAVE HAD A FEW EMAILS REGARDING.

WHETHER OR NOT VACCINES ARE GOING TO BE, UH, MANDATED. AND I WILL TELL YOU THAT AS LONG AS THEY ARE UNDER EMERGENCY YOUTH YOUTH USE. EXCUSE ME AUTHORIZATION THAT WILL NOT BE THE CASE. BUT ONCE THEY DO BECOME FULLY APPROVED BY THE FDA, THAT IS SOMETHING THAT, UM IS GOING TO BE ON THE TABLE, PROBABLY NOT FOR LOCAL SCHOOL BOARDS, BUT MORE SO AT THE STATE LEVEL IS WHAT MY GUEST IS GOING TO BE. UM. SO THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE MAY HAVE TO, UM, REQUIREMENT IN THE FUTURE. I'M TALKING AT LEAST 34 OR FIVE MONTHS FROM NOW, IF NOT LONGER.

UM IN ORDER TO COMPLY WITH WHAT STATE MANDATES ARE SIMILAR TO WHAT WE HAVE TO DO FOR MEASLES, MUMPS, RUBELLA, CHICKENPOX, UM. MENINGITIS HEPATITIS AND THE LIKE. SO I'LL CONCLUDE THERE.

MY NAME IS TODD HARRIS TOM, A PROUD FATHER OF A RISING THIRD GRADE CHURCH STILL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENT AND ARISING HISTORY STARTING AT STOPPED IN THE MIDDLE SCHOOL NEXT YEAR. I LOVE MY BOYS ARE TRULY REMARKABLE. I'M ALSO AN EDUCATOR MYSELF WHEN MY FAMILY MOVED TO HARTFORD COUNTY THREE YEARS AGO. HE REALLY METICULOUS EXPAND WHERE WE'RE GONNA LIVE. AND I CAN PROMISE YOU THAT WE DID OUR RESEARCH. AND ON THE SCHOOL SYSTEM, AND WE BUILT AND SETTLED IN THE ROLLING GREEN COMMUNITY AND CHURCH BILL BASED ON THE STRONG FAMILY LIKE COMMUNITY CULTURE IN CHURCH BILL AND THE HIGH PERFORMING SCHOOLS OUR CHILDREN WOULD BE ATTENDING. UNDER THE PROPOSED REDISTRICTING SCENARIO, THE CHURCH SILKEN IMMUNITY WILL LITERALLY BE SPLIT IN HALF WITH NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS ON EITHER SIDE OR 1 36 BEEN REDISTRICTED THE DIFFERENT SCHOOLS. CHANGE IS DISAPPOINTING AND INACCESSIBLE FOR SEVERAL REASONS. FIRST, THE DIVISION OF THE CHURCHILL COMMUNITY SEEMS TO GO AGAINST THE STATED GOAL OF PRESERVING NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOLS AND KEEPING THE COMMUNITIES INTACT. IT SEEMS OUR SMALL RURAL COMMUNITY IS STAYING THE CONSEQUENCES OF OVERDEVELOPMENT IN OTHER AREAS OF HARFORD COUNTY, WHICH IS IRONIC, GIVEN THAT CHURCHILL.

GEOGRAPHIC REGION HAS STRICT RESTRICTIONS ON NEW DEVELOPMENT AS PART OF THE DEER CREEK BROUGHT LEGACY AREA. TONIGHT. MY VOICE IS RESPECTFUL, YET STRONGLY OPPOSED THE REDISTRICTING OF COMMUNITIES WITHIN THE NHS MHS NINE AREA. KEEP OUR CHILDREN SENDING SOUTH CAME TO MIDDLE AND C. MILTON WRIGHT, WHERE THEY BELONG. BLOW ANALYTICS, MY NOTED DATA FROM CAMERAS FACE YOU KNOW THE KIDS AND HE WAS THE DATA ON THE GROUND WATCHING MY SON SHED TEARS OF GRIEF AND CONCERNED ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO ATTEND THE SCHOOL THAT THEY HAVE PLANNED ON ATTENDING IS UNACCEPTABLE SQUASH. IT SHOULD BE UNACCEPTABLE. BOARD, ALTHOUGH I KNOW THE HEART EDUCATED IN HARFORD COUNTY ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE, AND THEY WORK HARD AND ARE PASSIONATE, FAST, PERFECT STUDENTS. THERE IS CURRENTLY AN ACHIEVEMENT GAP BETWEEN SOUTHAMPTON AND STEAM MILTON RIGHT, AN AVERAGE IN MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL. NO, YOU SAY THAT YET OVERLAPPING CURRICULUM PROGRAMS THAT EACH OF YOUR SCHOOLS AND I BELIEVE THIS IS TRUE. HOWEVER, IT IS ALSO TRUE, ACCORDING TO MANY DATA POINTS, FOR WHATEVER REASON, THESE PROGRAMS AND CURRICULA ARE NOT CURRENTLY GIVING SIMILAR OUTCOMES.

STUDENTS. THE MISSION OF HARFORD COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS, THE QUALITY EDUCATION FOR STUDENTS, I WAS FORCING STUDENTS OUT OF A HIGHER PERFORMING SCHOOL INTO A LARIBLE. YOU HAVE REACHED THE TWO MINUTE MARK, SIR. THANK YOU. HE WORKED HARD IN THE EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES.

YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND

[00:30:03]

YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. JAMIE BATS. I AM A PARENT IN THE NHS NINE AREA. MY CHILDREN ARE STRAIGHT A STUDENTS AND ARE INVOLVED IN SPORTS, MUSIC AND OTHER ACTIVITIES WITHIN THE CHURCH BILL COMMUNITY WHO NEVER DREAMED THE BOUNDARY FROM MHS NINE AND MADE 1 36 A BOUNDARY CLEARLY DOES NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY. DURING THE COMMUNITY INPUT FORUMS. KEEPING COMMUNITIES TOGETHER WAS REPEATED BY THE PANEL MORE THAN 30 TIMES. IF THIS IS WHAT THE ADVISORY PANEL MEANS TO DO, WHY IS OUR COMMUNITY BEING RIPPED APART AT 1 36? THERE'S NEVER A GOOD TIME TO REDISTRICT BUT THROWING PROJECTED ENROLLMENT NUMBERS OUT AND RIPPING OUR COMMUNITY APART AFTER THIS TORTURE HERE IS NOT ONLY IRRESPONSIBLE IT DEMONSTRATES HOW OUT OF TOUCH OUR BOARD OF ED AND COUNTY COUNCIL IS REGARDING OUR CHILDREN, LOCAL COMMUNITIES AND FAMILIES. SEVERAL TIMES DURING THE COMMUNITY INPUT FORM. IT WAS STATED THAT CHILDREN ARE RESILIENT REGARDING THE TRAUMA AND MENTAL HEALTH RISKS OF REDISTRICTING. IS THAT WHAT THE EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH SHOWS ACCORDING TO MORE THAN 312 PEER REVIEWED STUDIES IN JOURNALS SUCH AS THE AMERICAN EDUCATION RESEARCH JOURNAL, THE JOURNAL OF EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH AND THE JOURNAL OF LEARNING SCIENCE.

THEY ALL CONTRADICT THAT STATEMENT. HCPS LOVE DATA. WHERE'S YOUR DATA TO SUPPORT THE STATEMENT THAT CHILDREN ARE RESILIENT ASIDE FROM OUR CHILDREN'S MENTAL HEALTH AND THE FACT THAT 1 36 IS A BOUNDARY DRAWN TO SLICE OUR COMMUNITY IN HALF. 2019 ENROLLMENT NUMBERS AND THEREFORE THE 2026 ENROLLMENT NUMBERS ARE NOWHERE NEAR ACCURATE. THE COUNTY DOES NOT KNOW WHAT STUDENTS WILL BE RETURNING OR STAYING AT THEIR PRIVATE OR HOME SCHOOL OPTIONS. THEY CHOSE DURING THE PANDEMIC FACING THIS REDISTRICTING ON INCORRECT ENROLLMENT NUMBERS COULD BE CONSIDERED GERRYMANDERING. THE EMMY JUST NINE DISTRICT IS COMPOSED OF 61, MIDDLE SCHOOLERS AND 59 HIGH SCHOOLERS. ACCORDING TO THE STUDENT ENROLLMENT PROJECTIONS OF THE PLANNING, MAYOR PLANNING DOT MARYLAND DOT THE WEBSITE, A CPS MIDDLE SCHOOL ENROLMENT THROUGH 2029 IS PROJECTED TO STEADILY DECLINED BY ALMOST 6% HOW IS THE COUNTY PROJECTING NUMBERS DIFFERENTLY BASED ON THEIR BALANCING ENROLLMENT WEBSITE, ACCORDING TO YOUR WEBSITE, TRANSPARENT AND INCLUSIVE BOUNDARY REVIEW PROCESS IS YOUR NUMBER ONE GOAL WHEN THE PANEL ONLY ADDRESSES THREE OF 107 QUESTIONS FROM NHS NINE THAT IS NOT INCLUSIVE. WHEN THE COUNTY CREATES NUMBERS THAT ARE DIFFERENT FROM THE STATE WEBSITE THAT IS NOT TRANSPARENT. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. HI. MY NAME'S JAMES MARSHALL. GOOD EVENING. THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK. OF THE PROPOSED BALANCING ENROLLMENT CHANGES IS FOR AREA NH THAT'S DYING, HE REMOVED FROM SOUTH INTO MIDDLE SCHOOL AND THE MILITARY HIGH SCHOOL. HAVE A VARIETY OF CONCERNS ABOUT THIS PROPOSED CHANGE, WHICH I'M SURE YOU'VE HEARD WELL HERE THIS EVENING.

PROPOSED CHANGE SPLITS A RURAL VILLAGE OF CHURCHVILLE AND HALF DEVISE THEIR SMALL COMMUNITY.

IRRESPONSIBLE PLANNING AND BUILDING HAVE CAUSED US TO BE PUSHED OUT AND REMOVED ONLY SCHOOLS WE'VE EVER DONE. TRAFFIC ON EAST 22 DURING THE MORNING COMMUTE WILL BE FURTHER BURDEN WITH APG COMMUNITY RETURNED TO WORK AND MORE BUSES ADDED TO THE ROAD. I AM HERE TO ASK YOU FOR YOUR HELP. I KNOW FLOW BLOOM AND THE ADVISOR ROUTINE ARE DOING THEIR JOBS BY LOOKING AT MAPS. NUMBERS DATA FOUNDRY LOOK. LIKE YOU ARE BOARD OF EDUCATION. NO, THESE COMMUNITIES HAVE THE FINAL DECISION. YOU KNOW THAT FAMILIES MOVE INTO THE COMMUNITIES FOR SCHOOLS. YOU KNOW, SOME OF THESE CHANGES WILL HAVE SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON THEIR FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES. BUT YOU AND CHALLENGE. HTTPS DEVELOP MORE CREATIVE SOLUTIONS. LOOK AT SCHOOLS THAT SHARE CAMPUS. CREATE EIGHTH GRADE ACADEMY WITHOUT COMMUNITIES WITHIN THESE BUILDINGS, ASK THEM HOW IT CAN WORK RATHER THAN WHY IT CAN.

HARFORD COUNTY IS MORE THAN NUMBERS AND BOUNDARY LINE. WE ARE COMMUNITIES. WE ARE FRIENDS. WE RELY ON EACH OTHER. WE'RE A VILLAGE. PLEASE HELP US. PLEASE KEEP OUR CHILDREN AT THE ONLY SCHOOLS WE HAVE EVER KNOW. THANK YOU SO MUCH. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING.

APPEARS

[00:35:03]

TO BE A METHODOLOGY. BIAS BOARD PLANNED DEVELOPMENT. METHODOLOGY BEING USED TO CALCULATE CAPACITY, RIGHTLY CONSIDERS THE PLAN GROWTH FOR HOUSING DEVELOPMENTS IN EACH AREA. HOWEVER IT APPEARS THAT HE'S PLANNED HOUSING DEVELOPMENTS ARE BEING GIVEN PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT OVER ALREADY OCCUPIED AND ESTABLISHED DEVELOPMENT. THESE ESTABLISHED DEVELOPMENTS ARE WE'RE TAXPAYING FAMILY HAVE MADE MAJOR FINANCIAL DECISIONS TO PURCHASE A HOUSE IN SPECIFIC SCHOOLS ARE. THIS IS THE CASE WITH MANY OF US RESIDING ENGLAND MOMENT WE SELECTED LIMBO MANNER BECAUSE IT IS QUIET AND INVITING COMMUNITY ATMOSPHERE AND BECAUSE IT IS IN THE HARFORD IN TO HAVE A DEGREE SCHOOL ZONE. REALIZING LIMBO AMOUNT, ER, NOW THE FOUR STAR RATED HIGH SCHOOL TO A THREE STAR RATED HIGH SCHOOL IS A BETRAYAL. FOR THOSE OF US WHO LIVE AND HAVE INVESTED IN CHURCHILL COMMUNITY AND PAY TAXES HERE FOR YEARS. IS IT ESPECIALLY UNFAIR TO THE SIX FAMILIES WHO HAVE MOVED HERE IN THE LAST 18 MONTHS. SOME OF WHICH HAVE MOVED OUT OF THE ABERDEEN. LITTLE ZONE TO CHURCH WILL EXPRESSLY FOR THIS PURPOSE. BALANCING ENROLLMENT PROCESS IS TO BE TRULY EQUITABLE AND PLANNED DEVELOPMENT COULD BE ALIGNED TO THE UNDERLYING UNDERUTILIZED TOOLS. AND POTENTIAL OWNERS CAN MAKE THE SAME DECISION WE'VE HAD TO MAKE AND CHOOSE THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, WHICH THEY WILL LIVE IN INSTEAD OF THE HARFORD. COUNTY BOARD OF EDUCATION, NOT DECIDING WHERE ARE.

YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING, PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. JENNIFER CORDONS. ITS FIRST CELLS. PARENTS I KNOW YOU'RE ALL HERE BECAUSE YOU WANT THE BEST FOR ALL THE CHILDREN OF HARPER COUNTY, BUT IN REGARDS TO THE CHILDREN OF MHS NINE, I AM IMPLORING YOU NOT SNOOP THIS RELATIVELY SMALL GROUP OF CHILDREN AS IT WILL HURT THEM IN SEVERAL WAYS. WOULD BE A SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN TIME SPENT IN THE BUS AND ON THE ROAD. THE MOVE WOULD INCREASE THE MILES. THESE CHILDREN HAVE TO TRAVEL TRAVIS LEVEL AND IT WILL BE PUTTING THEIR BUSES INTO THE ALREADY BURDEN TRAFFIC GETTING STUDENTS FROM 80 BEATS AND SOON THE NEW HOSPITAL. PLEASE DON'T MAKE MY KIDS IN THAT DANGEROUS TRAFFIC EVERY DAY. MOVING THE CHILDREN OF THE NHS NINE WOULD BE TEARING APART A COMMUNITY. OUR KIDS GO TO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TOGETHER, PLAY SPORTS TOGETHER AND HAVE IMPORTANT FRIENDSHIPS WITH KIDS JUST ACROSS THE ROAD ON THE OTHER SIDE OF 1 36. DON'T BREAK THE PARTY RESPONSE JUST AS OUR CHILDREN ENTER THE ALREADY CHALLENGING MIDDLE SCHOOL YEARS. WHY MOVE OUR KIDS OUT OF THEIR SCHOOL SYSTEM MOVE IN OTHER GROUPS. LEAD LOOK FOR A SOLUTION THAT DISRUPT YOU WERE ALIVE. LASTLY I AM DEEPLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE QUALITY OF EDUCATION, MY CHILDREN'S FEET AND, OF COURSE, THEIR SAFETY. ALBERTI MIDDLE GETS A GRADE OF 44% THAT'S 22% LOWER THAN SOUTH CAMPAIGN. AVERAGE IN MIDDLE SCHOOL IS 34% LESS PROFICIENT IN MATH? 30% LESS PROFICIENT IN ENGLISH AND 39% LESS PROFICIENT IN SCIENCE IN SOUTHAMPTON. HAVEN'T ENFORCED NEED TO BE PROTECTED AND LIFTED UP SO THEY CAN SERVE THEIR SIN BETTER AND MORE SAFELY, ADDING THE CITIZENS. MHS NINE, IS NOT ANSWERED TO HELP THE CHILDREN ALREADY ENROLLED IN TERMS. IT'S CERTAINLY NOT FAIR OR EQUITABLE FOR OUR CHILDREN MOVED TO A SPORT THAT IS PERFORMING SIGNIFICANTLY WORSE THAN THEIR CURRENT SCHOOL. MY LAST REQUEST. PLEASE PROVIDE INFORMATION ON THE DISCREPANCY BETWEEN THE CAPACITY AND FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY LISTED ON THE SCHOOL'S WEBSITE. PLEASE PROVIDE MORE CLARITY ON HOW THESE DECISIONS WERE MADE ON HOW THE ANTICIPATED NUMBER OF SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN WAS CALCULATED, ARE THE DEVELOPMENT THAT WE ARE CURRENTLY BEING TOLD ABOUT ALREADY APPROVED. UM, IF THESE YOU HAVE REACHED THE TWO MINUTE MARK. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW IN THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING, PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. HELLO THIS IS ERIC MILLER FROM HAPPY AGREE. WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND FOR REMIND ME TO SHARE COMMENTS IN REGARDS THE BALANCING ENROLLMENT INITIATIVE. AND ALTHOUGH SOME CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE THE ELEMENTARY PROPOSAL IN RESPONSE TO THE LARGEST IMPACT TO HAVE THE GREAT COMMUNITY THERE'S STILL SOME THINGS THAT DON'T MAKE SENSE TO ME THAT DON'T SEEM FAIR AND NEED ANOTHER LOOK. DID COMPLETE A COMMUNITY SURVEY AND HOW THEY DID MY CONCERNS ON CHANGE AREAS. SPECIFICALLY AS E. FOUR B IS A SMALL CHANGE AREA PROPOSED TO MOVE FROM

[00:40:03]

MEADOWVALE TO HAVE A DEGREE IN ELEMENTARY SPOKES. SC TWO IS ANOTHER SMALL CHANGE AREA PROPOSED TO MOVE FROM HALF DEGREES ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TO MEADOWVALE, WHICH IS JUST THE OPPOSITE. WHAT IS THE SIZE OF THE IMPACT HERE? IT SEEMS THAT REBALANCING THESE TWO AREAS WOULD BE A NET CHANGES ZEROS, THE DISPLACED THOSE FAMILIES FROM THEIR KNOWN AND LOVED SCHOOLS. I CAN PERSONALLY SAY THAT THE PROPOSED SC TO CHANGE AREA WOULD SEPARATE COUSINS WHO ARE CURRENTLY IN THE SAME CLASS THAT HAVING A GREAT ELEMENTARY SPORT TODAY AND SEND THEM TO DIFFERENT SCHOOLS, AND THAT WOULD BE EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING. ADDITIONALLY I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO REITERATE COMMENT THAT YOU HAVE BEEN HEARING FROM OUR COMMUNITY AROUND KEEPING HAVING GREAT CITIZENS AND HAVE A DEGREE SCHOOLS. AS SUCH, I BELIEVE THE BEST INTERESTS OF OUR KIDS TO MAINTAIN THE CURRENT STATE OF THE HALF DEGREE STUDENT COMMUNITIES AND TO PUT BETTER EFFORT INTO A LONG TERM PLANS THAT WE'VE BEEN NEEDS OF OUR THRIVING CITY. WE ARE THE GREAT. ALL OF THE PARENTS IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS HAVE PURCHASED THEIR HOMES WITH THE INTENTION THAT OUR CHILDREN WOULD HAVE AND HAVE DEGREE SCHOOLS. WE DESERVE. MAINTAIN THE ABILITY TO DO THAT. AND TO HAVE INPUT ON WHERE OUR KIDS WILL BE RAISED. EDUCATED WE CHOSE HAVING A GREAT WE WANT OUR CHILDREN TO ATTEND SCHOOL WITH THEIR FRIENDS WHO LIVE IN OTHER NEARBY HAVE EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD. PLAY ON THEIR SPORTS TEAMS AND PARTICIPATE TOGETHER AND OTHER HAVE DEGREES DIRECT PROGRAMS. THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT WE HAVE TODAY. WE SHOULD NOT CHANGE THAT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION. GOOD EVENING.

YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING, PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. HI. MY NAME IS JESSICA MOGAVERO AND I'M CALLING ABOUT THE BALANCING ENROLLMENT. AND, UM, THE SECTION OF MARY WOULD CW SIX THAT THEY WANT TO MOVE TO FORESTS LAKES. I'M CALLING BECAUSE I'M AGAINST THIS. I HAVE STEWED CHILDREN WHO ARE SPECIAL NEEDS AND I UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE STATISTICS AND NUMBERS, BUT THEY'RE THESE CHILDREN ARE MORE THAN STATISTICS AND NUMBERS AND TAKING THEM FROM THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD AND COMMUNITY IS TAKING THEM FROM THEIR FULLY INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENT. AND THEY NEED TO MOVE ASIDE THESE NUMBERS AND THESE MAPS AND LOOK AT WHAT IT'S DOING TO THESE FAMILIES AND THESE CHILDREN, AND NOBODY SEEMS TO WANT TO PAY ATTENTION TO THAT. THEY JUST WANT TO LOOK AT THE NUMBERS AND PERCENTAGES. BUT IT'S A LOT MORE THAT'S GOING ON IN THIS COMMUNITY AND THIS NEIGHBORHOOD, THEN NUMBERED.

AND IT REALLY UPSET ME BECAUSE IT'S A SNOWBALL EFFECT FOR MY TWO YOUNG BOYS WHO ARE BOTH SPECIAL NEEDS, AND THEY NEED TO BE IN A NEIGHBORHOOD IN A COMMUNITY AND THEIR SCHOOLS THAT FULLY SUPPORTS THEM, AND THEY FULLY INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENT AND THEY NEED ALL THREE OF THOSE THINGS. THANK YOU. CHILDREN GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAIN. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW.

HI, JACQUELINE MARSHALL. IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD. DID YOU KNOW THAT CHURCHVILLE IS CONSIDERED A RURAL VILLAGE OF HARFORD COUNTY, CHURCHVILLE IS A REMINDER OF HARFORD COUNTY'S BEGINNINGS AND IS THE TYPE OF COMMUNITY THAT HAVE ATTRACTED SO MANY PEOPLE TO MOVE THE HARFORD COUNTY IN THE FIRST PLACE. ONE OF THE BALANCING ENROLLMENT CHANGES FOR OUR AREA. M H S NINE TO BE MOVED FROM SOUTHAMPTON AND C. MILTON WRIGHT. THE PROPOSED CHANGE LITERALLY SPLITS ARE RURAL VILLAGE IN HALF AND DIVIDES OUR SMALL COMMUNITY.

MANY FAMILIES. I'M SURE MANY OF YOU WHO ARE LISTENING THOSE HOMES BASED ON THE SCHOOLS.

AFTER LIVING IN THE BELLER ABINGDON AREA FOR 31 YEARS, WE HAD JUST MOVED TO CHURCH. STILL IN OCTOBER. WE BOUGHT OUR HOME BECAUSE OF THE WELL ESTABLISHED CLOSE KNIT COMMUNITY TO WHICH IT BELONGS AND BECAUSE OF THE SCHOOLS. THERE ARE TWO ELEMENTARY AGED DAUGHTERS, MY NEIGHBORHOOD AND THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A PART OF THE SOUTH HAMPTON C. MILTON WRIGHT FAMILY, IT IS SUSTAINABLE TO THINK THAT OUR LITTLE COMMUNITY COULD BE SPLIT IN HALF AND PUSHED OUT OF THE ONLY SCHOOLS WE HAVE EVER KNOWN. DUE TO IRRESPONSIBLE PLANNING AND BUILDING IN BEL AIR. THE PROPOSED CHANGE MOVES OF TWO SCHOOLS THAT ARE TWO MILES FURTHER AWAY THAN OUR CURRENT SCHOOLS. TWO MILES MAY NOT SEEM LIKE MUCH, BUT IT WILL HAVE BUSES MOVING OUR CHILDREN IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION. AT OUR CURRENT SCHOOLS. HE ALREADY HEAVY TRAFFIC ON EAST 22 WILL BE FURTHER BURDEN AND AS SIGNIFICANT COMMUTE TIME DO TWO MORE BUSES TRAVELLING WITH THE BIG COMMUTERS. MANY OF WHOM ARE CURRENTLY CONTINUE WORKING FROM HOME ONCE THEY'RE IN PERSON. WORK RESUMES, THE TRAFFIC WILL BE HEAVIER AND ONLY ADD TO THIS BURDEN. THIS PROCESS LOOKS AT NUMBERS. REALIGNS DATA, BUT IT DOESN'T CONNECT AS THE CHILDREN, FAMILIES, COMMUNITIES AND LIVED EXPERIENCES BEHIND IT ALL. THAT IS WHERE YOU ARE.

[00:45:05]

BOARD OF EDUCATION COMES IN. PLEASE KEEP OUR 61 LITTLE SCORES AND 54 HIGH SCHOOLERS WITH OUR RURAL VILLAGE. PLEASE KEEP THEM AS THE SCHOOLS WE HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN. PLEASE DO NOT BEEN DISTRICT MX NINE. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW IN THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING, PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS JOSH CAUSAL. AS WE CLOSED OUT THE SCHOOL YEAR. I WANTED TO REFLECT FROM TESTIMONY AGAVE LAST AUGUST AS WE ENTERED THE SCHOOL YEAR TO SEE IF IT IS AT ITS ACCURACY. EXCERPT FROM MY AUGUST 2020 TESTAMENT. PARENTS WHO HAVE BEEN VOCAL THIS ENTIRE TIME. WE DID HAVE HOPE. I HOPE THAT THE FALL WOULD BE BETTER AT HTTPS WOULD DO THE RIGHT THING, ESPECIALLY AFTER DROPPING THE BALL THIS PAST SPRING. WE APPRECIATED BEING ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN VARIOUS DISCUSSIONS AND GROUPS.

INCLUDING THE PARENT RECOVERY TEAM. NEEDLESS TO SAY, AS WE SIT HERE IN AUGUST. ALL THOSE HOPES HAVE GONE OUT THE DOOR. WE FEEL DISCOURAGED, UNCONFIDENT BETRAYED IN LIGHT TO THIS DISCOURAGING TO SEE A SYSTEM THAT ISN'T FOCUSED ON THEIR JOB OF PROVIDING A PROPER EDUCATION. WE'RE NOT CONFIDENT THAT YOU HAVE. IT IS BEST FOR OUR CHILDREN AND COMMUNITY AT THE TOP OF YOUR GOALS. AND LASTLY, WE FEEL BETRAYED SINCE YOU AS A BACKPEDALED AND TAKING OFF CHOICES AWAY FROM PARENTS. IT IS OUR OPINION THAT DR BOLSON SHOULD RESIGN IN THE BOARD. HE UNDER REVIEW FOR LACK OF LEADERSHIP AND FOR BEING INCOMPETENT TO FILL TO FULFILL THEIR DUTIES. AS I REFLECT ON THIS, I WOULD SAY THIS IS STILL TRUE AND EVEN MORE OCCURRING TODAY AS A SYSTEM. YOU HAVE FAILED OUR CHILDREN COMMUNITY IN THE FUTURE. THIS IS DELLA FOR OUR CHILDREN'S EDUCATION, MENTAL HEALTH AND OVERALL, WELL BEING, WELL BEING. YOU HAVE WASTED TIME, MONEY AND RESOURCES AS YOU DELAY OR DRAG YOUR FEET FULLY REOPENING OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS. PLEASE NOTE. YOU STILL HAVE NOT ACHIEVED THIS GOAL, TO BE HONEST. WHAT YOU HAVE DONE THIS PAST YEAR IS ABUSE. AND THE WORST PART ABOUT IT IS YOU WERE OKAY WITH IT.

YOU FAILED TO GET OUR CHILDREN BACK IN SCHOOL FIVE DAYS A WEEK REMOVED THE COMPUTERS AND, MOST IMPORTANTLY, MET, YOU WERE FOCUSING ON CHANGING THE CURRICULUM, WASTING COUNTLESS RESOURCES TO ESTABLISH A VIRTUAL PLATFORM AND PURCHASED. PERCEPTION ITEM DIVIDING COMMUNITIES WITH YOUR ATTEMPT TO REDISTRICT. HAVE BELITTLED THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTY WITH YOUR POWER HUNGRY DICTATORSHIP. NOT ONLY SHOULD DOCTOR BOLSON RESIGNED EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THE W ON THIS BOARD SHIP TO I DO NOT SAY THIS WITH MALICE IN MY HEART. THE PEOPLE, PARENTS, STUDENTS AND COMMUNITY WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS ANY FURTHER. THE MOST VULNERABLE PEOPLE ARE STILL SUFFERING. AND THAT IS OUR STUDENT. GOOD EVENING. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW IN THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. HI. MY NAME'S KELLY BONNEVILLE. GOOD EVENING. I'M A CURRENT RESIDENT OF THEATRE DAY IN HER NEIGHBORHOOD FALLS WITHIN THE CS SEVEN AND WHICH THAT'S FOUR BOUNDARIES.

I'D LIKE TO REFERENCE THE HARTFORD COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOL 2019 2026 CAPACITY ENROLLMENT PROJECTIONS SPREADSHEET ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS. WE'VE ASKED THE PATERSON MILL MIDDLE IS OVER CAPACITY. AND THE HIGH SCHOOL IS UNDER BY CAN SPACE THE RE ALLOCATED TO ACCOMMODATE FOR THE OVERCROWDING? WE'VE BEEN TOLD DIFFERENT THINGS, BUT THE ONE CONSISTENT MESSAGE HAS BEEN THAT THE OVERCAPACITY FROM THE MIDDLE SCHOOL WILL CARRY OVER TO THE HIGH SCHOOL.

THERE'S ABSOLUTELY NO DATA TO SUPPORT THIS STATEMENT. IN FACT, THE PROJECTED NUMBERS PATTERSON MILL HIGH SCHOOL IN 2026 ACTUALLY DECREASES TO 84. IF YOU LOOK ACROSS. HIGH SCHOOLS IN HARFORD COUNTY. YOU WILL NOTICE THIS IS A COMMON SCENARIO. THIS IS BECAUSE SO MANY KIDS LEAVE PUBLIC SCHOOL IN THE NINTH GRADE WITH HIM PRIVATE SCHOOLS, LANGUAGE SCHOOLS IN TEXT GOALS. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO SUGGEST THE OVERCAPACITY IN THE MIDDLE SCHOOL TRANSFER AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL. EXACTLY TO A DRUG GUIDING PRINCIPLES BY WHICH IS TO MAINTAIN NEIGHBORHOODS. BOTH THAT OPTIMIZE PROXIMITY TO WHOM I KIDS MAY NOT BE WALKERS BUT BEING INCLUSIVE NEIGHBORHOOD ALONG THE OVER INTO POWDER AND GIVES OUR KIDS TO BENEFIT SPECIFIC E. AN EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES CAN TRANSPORTATION IS AN ISSUE WHEN A LARGE NEIGHBORHOOD LIKE SATURDAY HAVE THIS BENEFITS? WHY WOULD YOU PUSH THIS BLISSFUL WHERE THIS SIMPLY IS IMPOSSIBLE? PLEASE KEEP THEM IN OUR COMMUNITY. LAST WHEN WE LOOK AT THE OVERALL ENROLLMENT AVERAGE ACROSS ALL THE MIDDLE SCHOOLS IN HARFORD COUNTY, THE AVERAGE ACTUAL ENROLLMENT IS 88% WE CAN ADVISE THAT PROJECTED TOTAL DEVELOPMENT HAS BEEN FACTORED IN THE BALANCING ENROLLMENT MODELLING SCENARIOS. WE'RE LOOKING AT THE 0 TO 5 YEAR BUILDING PROJECTIONS FOR LOOKING AT 1474 SINGLE FAMILY HOME AND WENT DOWN FROM 657 MULTI FAMILY HOME. THAT'S A TOTAL OF 3131 HOME. WASN'T MATHEMATICALLY POSSIBLE. HE HAD AN AVERAGE OF 88% IN FACTOR IN ALL OF THE PROJECT BARRIER TO FIVE YEARS IN DEVELOPMENT AND

H S FOUR REGIONS PETER DAY SINCE 2000 AND SEVEN PATTERSON MILL AND HIGH IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOL, IT'S LESS THAN TWO MILES AWAY. YOU CAN WALK OR BIKE HOME FROM AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES. WE MOVED TO THIS NEIGHBORHOOD BECAUSE OF THE PROXIMITY TO SCHOOLS AND TO BE A PART OF THIS COMMUNITY. WE CURRENTLY ATTEND HOMESTEAD WAKEFIELD, WHERE 66% OF STUDENTS MOVED TO BEL AIR, MIDDLE AND HIGH AND 33% ME TO PATERSON, THOUGH. MIDDLE SCHOOL. THIS EQUATES TO APPROXIMATELY 55 STUDENTS PER YEAR MOVING TO PATTERSON NOW. WITH THE PROPOSED CHANGES BEING PUT FORTH SMALLER GROUP OF 55. CENTS SLOWLY SPLIT INTO TWO SMALLER GROUPS WERE ABOUT 31 STUDENTS WILL MOVE SOUTH HAMPTON AND HE NOTHING AND HOMESTEAD WAIT FOR WILL BE THE ONLY TRIPLE FEED OUR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN HARTFORD COUNTY. GROUPING STUDENTS FROM ELEMENTARY TO MIDDLE TO HIGHER KNOWN AS COHORTS AND HAS BEEN A HIGH PRIORITY FOR HEALTHCARE COUNTY PUBLIC BOAT AND THAT HAS LED TO DECISIONS TO KEEP AS MANY ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS A SINGLE THEATERS AS POSSIBLE AND FOR ALL MIDDLE SCHOOLS TO BE SINGLE THEATERS, THE HIGH SCHOOL. THIS IS A RECOGNITION AMONG HCPS OF THE ADVANTAGES KEEPING COHORTS TOGETHER FOR POSITIVE SOCIAL NATIONAL IN AN INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT UNIT. LIBYAN GROUP OF STUDENTS TO OTHER COMMUNITY SCHOOLS FOR MUSIC STUDENTS FROM THEIR CURRENT TOE BOARD AND THEIR EXISTING COMMUNITIES. SUDDENLY OUR GEARS WILL BE STARTING IN A NEW SCHOOL FOR TWO YEARS AND NO, BARELY ANYONE. AT THE ELEMENTARY LEVEL FLOAT. UM, PRIORITIZE KEEPING COHORTS TOGETHER WITH THEIR MIDDLE AND HIGH CEDARS. BUT NOW WE ARE WILLING TO SOME STUDENTS FROM A SCHOOL THAT IS TWO MILES FROM THEIR HOMES. AND IN THEIR COMMUNITY TO 47 MILES AWAY AND OUTSIDE OF THEIR COMMUNITY, THIS CHANGE NOT ONLY IMPACT WILL TRANSPORTATION BUT ALSO TRANSPORTATION TO AFTER CELL ACTIVITIES, WHICH NORMALLY OCCUR DURING PEAK TRAFFIC.

PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. MY NAME IS DAVE SIMON FROM BEL AIR MARYLAND, A LIFELONG RESIDENT OF PARKLAND COUNTY, ALMOST 50 YEARS BY NINE SIBLINGS AND I ALL GRADUATED FROM HARFORD COUNTY. I THOUGHT AND COACH FOR HARFORD COUNTY.

MY CHILDREN WENT TO HARTFORD COUNTY. I'VE PLAYED REC SPORTS AND COACH THROUGH EXPORTS IN THESE BUILDINGS. OVER TIME. I FELT THAT THE FACILITIES HAS CHOKED THE USE OF FACILITIES SUCH CHOKED OUT THE COMMUNITY. I'VE SEEN PROGRAMS PUSHED OUT. MOST RECENTLY, I PLAYED PICKUP BASKETBALL, FEMALE RIGHT HIGH SCHOOL WE PLAYED OVER TWO DECADES OVER 20 YEARS. WITHIN THE LAST FIVE YEARS. WE WERE KICKED OUT. I SPOKE TO A REPORTER WITH AT A LOCAL NEWSPAPER WHO TOLD ME THE NOT GET THEM STARTED WHEN I MENTIONED THE USE OF FACILITIES IN HARFORD COUNTY, THEY SHARED A STORY ABOUT A VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT, WHICH WAS DENIED ACCESS. AND IN EACH CASE, THERE'S PROBABLY SOME GOOD EXCUSE OF A POLICY OR POLICY CHANGE. BUT I'M HERE TODAY TO SAY THAT WE WANT A NEW POLICY AND WE WANT A NEW DIRECTION. WE WANT TO SEE OUR SCHOOLS MORE OPEN TO THE COMMUNITY. I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO STAND UP FOR THIS MATTER LONG BEFORE TODAY, BUT I HAD. UNFORTUNATELY IT TOOK A PANDEMIC AND A SLOW RESPONSE TO BRING ME TO THIS POINT. WE HAVE STORES BACK OVER BALLPARK BACK OPEN, AND MANY OF THOSE PLACES HAVE MANY CHILDREN. AND YET OUR REC PROGRAMS ARE LOCKED OUT.

COMMUNITY IS LOCKED OUT JUST TO THE WEST. OTHER COUNTIES HAVE THEIR COMMUNITIES BACK IN THEIR BUILDINGS DURING THE LAST YEAR DURING THE VERY WORST TIME OF SO THAT WE TRAVELED NORTH, THE FACILITIES AND PAPA WHERE LARGE COMPETITIONS WERE HELD, WITH THOUSANDS OF PARTICIPANTS. TO THE SOUTH. THE SAME STORY. I'VE BEEN ABLE TO PRACTICE SPORTS CENTER FACILITY. IN HARFORD COUNTY, BUT NOT IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. WE REMAIN. LOCKED OUT, NO GOOD INDICATION OF ANY SORT OF RETURNING ALL ACROSS THE NATION AND MARYLAND OUTDOOR AND INDOOR VENUES HAVE RESUMED NORMAL OPERATIONS EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK, WE'RE OPEN, EXCEPT A FEW PLACES. HARFORD COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS. THAT'S ONE OF THE LAST. HARFORD COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS REMAINS FROZEN WITH AN UNHEALTHY AND UNREASONABLE FEAR. IT IS ONE THING TO ACT WITH CAUTION. I AM BY NATURE, A CAUTIOUS PERSON AND I APPRECIATE OTHERS ACTING WITH CAUTION. HARFORD COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS. YOU HAVE REACHED THE TWO MINUTE MARK. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW IN THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES.

MY NAME'S TIM INTEREST REPRESENTING MHS FOUR IN THE SATURDAY COMMUNITY. JUST HERE TO DISPUTE THE GUIDING PRINCIPLES FIVE AND SIX, MAINTAIN THE NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOLS THAT APPROX APPROXIMATELY TO HARM AS WELL AS THE TRANSPORTATION IMPACTS.

AND I WANT TO JUST MAKE THE COMMENTS UNFORTUNATE THAT WE'RE IN THIS SITUATION. OUR COMMUNITY WAS, UH, YOU KNOW, HERE PRIOR TO THE BUILDING OF THE PATERSON MIDDLE SCHOOL, AND WE'RE ALREADY TALKING ABOUT CAPACITY AND GET PUSHED OUT INTO A DIFFERENT SIPPEL SELF. I WANT TO MAKE THAT KIND OF COMMENT AND OBSERVATIONS, SO HOPEFULLY THAT'S NOT OVERLOOKED. THANKS. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING.

PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. PHONE NUMBER ENDING IN 6451. CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES. I'M SORRY. I WAS ON YOUTH. THAT'S QUITE ALL RIGHT.

YOU HAVE A FEW MINUTES, YOU'LL HEAR THE BELL RING WITH 30. SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF WITH YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME FIRST. OUR CITY EVENING. MY NAME IS ANTHONY WEBSTER AND I LIVE IN THE THEATER DAY COMMUNITY. I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO HEAR MY AGREEMENTS IS WITH THE PROPOSAL. REDISTRICTING OUR COMMUNITY FROM PATTERSON MILL MIDDLE IN HIGH SCHOOL. M. H S FOUR C. MILTON WRIGHT AND SOUTH HAMPTON. FIRST I WOULD LIKE TO DRAW ATTENTION TO THE OBVIOUS ISSUE THAT IS SEEN WITH LOOKING AT THE HARVARD COUNTY REDISTRICTING MAP. AND AT 10, 8, BEST FOR HAS MULTIPLE LARGE FOOD COMMUNITIES BLASTER TOGETHER TO MEET THE AGENDA OF RELOCATING STUDENTS IN THE REDISTRICTING EFFORT. THE FUGITIVE COMMUNITY WITH THE BAR, THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE GROUP COMMUNITY. HAVE TROUBLE SEEING THE LOGIC THAT WE HAVE A COMMUNITY RELOCATED PAST OUR CURRENT MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL, BUT OTHER RESIDENTS DEMOGRAPHICALLY CLOSER FEMALE,

[01:00:02]

THE RIGHT AND SOUTHAMPTON REMAIN IN THE PLACES IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THE PATERSON.

NO BOUNDARIES. STATUE MOVE WAS WARRANTED WHAT DID NOT MAKE SENSE TO REDISTRICT NEIGHBORHOODS FURTHER NORTH RATHER THAN THE EXTREME SOUTH, AS PROPOSED. THE NORTHERN SECTION OF THE AREN'T PATERSON NO BOUNDARIES AS COMMUNITIES THAT WERE IN FOUR MILES STATE, MILTON BRIGHT AND 2.5 MILES OF THE SOUTH HIM. CEDAR DATE FEMALE, RIGHT. THE TOTAL DISTANCE ONE WAY IS 8.5 MILES AND 6.2. MILES ONE SOUTH ONE WAY TO SOUTH HAMPTON MIDDLE SCHOOL FROM SATURDAY. THE TOTAL DISTANCE PATERSON MILK IS 1.5 MILES ONE WAY. A REASONABLE CONCLUSION WOULD BE THAT SINCE YOU TODAY IS THE FURTHEST SOUTHERN COMMUNITY AND MHS FOUR LOOP, WE ARE HAVING OUR CHILDREN BUST A FURTHER DISTANCE. FOURTH ON NORTHERN COMMUNITIES ATTENDING PATTERSON MILL. YET ANOTHER NORTHERN COMMUNITIES ARE CLOSER TO SCHOOLS PROPOSED IN OUR DISTRICT. WOULD LIKE TO BREAK DOWN THE NUMBERS TO PROVIDING THE DEAD AND THE DETAILS. WHY THIS MOVE MAKES LITTLE SENSE. MULTIPLYING THE TOTAL MILES DISCUSSED PREVIOUSLY WITH 180 CALENDAR DAYS, PETER DATE FEMALES AND BRIGHT BUT THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF ANNUAL ROUND TRIP MILES WOULD BE 6000 AND 60 MILES. AND THE TWO MINUTE MARK.

THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING.

IF YOU WERE PREVIOUSLY MUTED IF YOU CAN PRESS STAR SIX ON YOUR PHONE. AND WE'LL TRY ONE MORE TIME BEFORE I MOVE ON TO THE NEXT SPEAKER. PHONE NUMBER ENDING IN 8453. IF YOU CAN HEAR ME, YOU MAY BE MUTED TRI STAR SIX ON YOUR PHONE. OKAY, MS. RALLO IF YOU CAN JUST NOTE THAT PHONE NUMBER, UM IT'S THE LAST. THE EXTENSION IS 8453 SO THAT HOPEFULLY WE CAN GET THEM BACK INTO THE MEETING. IF NOT, HOPEFULLY WE CAN FOLLOW UP WITH THEM AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE MEETING, IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND.

I GOT IT. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW IN THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING.

PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. NUMBER ENDING IN 1663. CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES, HI. MY NAME IS LATE, TONY. I FIND THAT MIND BOGGLING HOW SILLY DATE COMMUNITY THAT IS WITHIN TWO MILES OF STATUS TO MELT WAS PLACED ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK AND BE INCREASED ONTO A SCHOOL MUCH FURTHER AWAY WHILE KEEPING OTHER COMMUNITIES. THAT ARE MUCH CLOSER MOTIVES AND PATTERSON MILL BOUNDARY. WE STILL TODAY HIGH SCHOOLS ARE PICKED UP AROUND 6:45 A.M. WITH A ROUGHLY 10 MINUTE BUS RIDE STARTED TO MELT. HE'S OWNING NOT ONLY INCREASES THE BUS RIDE TIME. CONSIDERABLY BUT ALSO FORCED THESE KIDS TO WAKE UP MUCH EARLIER. COMING BACK LATER. LIMIT ACTIVITIES REDUCES RUST. HOME AND SPEAK TIME. PVC GUIDELINES, SPECIFICALLY CALLED OUT LACK OF PROPER SLEEP, A RISK CHILDREN AND ADULTS.

THINGS DO NOT GET ENOUGH SPEED OF A HIGHER RISK FOR MANY HEALTH PROBLEMS. POOR MENTAL HEALTH. ATTENTION AND BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS WHICH CAN CONTRIBUTE TO POOR ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE IN SCHOOL. THESE THINGS ARE FUTURE BY REZONING. TODAY YOU NOT ONLY ARE AFFECTING THEIR WELL BEING, BUT ALSO BREAKING THE OVER A DECADE. LONGEVITY ATTENDANCE. A BOTTLE OF MILK. MORE SO DISRUPTING FRIENDSHIP INTRODUCING SPORTS LIMITATIONS OUTSET AN INCONVENIENCE FOR WRITERS WITH A LONGER DRIVE THAT MAYBE OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS. PLACE OF BUSINESS AND RESIDENTS. WALKING TO SCHOOL WILL NO LONGER BE AN OPTION, EITHER. THERE ARE MANY OTHER OPTIONS CONSIDERED WITHOUT DISRUPTING THE THEATER DAY COMMUNITY. WE KEEP YOU TODAY WITH ADDISON MILL BOUNDARY AND THE ZONE. OTHER OBVIOUS COMMUNITIES NORTH AND SOUTH, THE FURTHER CONSIDER DATA, OTHER SCHOOLS OR BETTER YET. KILL REQUIRED FUNDING TO

[01:05:02]

BUILDING AND EXPANDING SCHOOLS SO THAT THE PUBLIC DOES NOT HAVE TO GO THROUGH SUCH GREAT AND CONVENIENCE. EVERY TIME I CONCLUDE WITH THE WASHINGTON EXAMINERS ARTICLE WRITTEN IN 2000 AND SEVEN WAS STATING, EVENTUALLY SEPARATE MIDDLE SCHOOL WILL BECOME CONSTRUCTED AT PATTERSON. YOU HAVE REACHED THE TWO MINUTE MARK. THANK YOU. I AM SEEING AN EXTENSION 8453.

SO I'M GOING TO TRY TO BRING THEM BACK INTO THE MEETING. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW IN THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. MANY MILLION RICHARD FILM AND I CURRENTLY RESIDE AND BE A THEATER DAY, WHICH IS MH FOUR. I'M CONCERNED ABOUT THE PROPOSED REDISTRICTING OF OUR CHILDREN FROM PATTERSON MILL TO SOUTHAMPTON AND FEMALE 10 RIGHTS, AND THAT'S BEFORE MY HEARD REPRESENTATIVES ARE PRETTY CONCERNS REGARDING LONGER BUS TIME, STATING THAT EVEN WITH THE ADDED MILEAGE BUS TENDED ONLY INCREASED BY 10 TO 15 MINUTES. THAT SOUNDS FINE, BUT I'D LIKE TO REMIND THE BOARD OF GUIDING PRINCIPLES. FIVE MAINTAINED NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOLS THAT OPTIMIZE PROXIMITY TO HOMES AND PRIORITY SAFE WALKING PASSAGES TO AND FROM.

PROPOSED SCHOOL THERE IN NO WAY WITHIN WATCHING JUST INTO OUR HOMES HERE IN MH FOUR. I KNOW THAT OUR COMMUNITY IS NOT CONSIDERED A WALKING COMMUNITY, HOWEVER, THE PROXIMITY OF PATTERSON MILL ALLOWS MANY OF OUR CHILDREN TO WALK OR BIKE. SONGS AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES.

OUR CURRENT PEOPLE THAT COULD EASILY HAVE MY OLDER CHILD BIKE HOME IF NEEDED, SO I CAN BE WITH MY YOUNGER CHILDREN. THE PROPOSED SCHOOLS ARE BETWEEN 6 TO 7 MILES, AND I'M EXTREMELY BUSY ROAD, SO THERE'S NO WAY THIS COULD BE AN OPTION FOR US. ALSO ON LAST FORUM REPRESENTATIVES ACTUALLY LIKE REALLOCATING UNDER USED HIGH SCHOOL CLASSROOMS TO MIDDLE SCHOOL CLASSROOMS WITHIN PATTERSON MILL WAS COMPLETELY UNDOABLE. SO THEY'RE SAYING THE BETTER SOLUTION AT THE UPWARD OUR CHILDREN FROM THE ONLY SCHOOL RIGHT NOW. 19% OF STUDENTS FROM HOMESTEAD WAKEFIELD WILL BE GOING TO SOUTHAMPTON THAT LEAVES THEIR CHILDREN, CLINTON AND STANCE OF BEING IN CLASSES WITH ANYONE THEY KNOW WHEN THEY START MIDDLE SCHOOL. THE CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY. WE WILL INEVITABLY BE ADDRESSING OVERCROWDING ISSUES AGAIN IN A FEW YEARS. PERHAPS INSTEAD OF STUMBLING STUDENTS, WE SHOULD BE ADDRESSING THAT IF YOU HEAD ON AND SEPARATE THE PATERSON MILL SCHOOLS INTO THE TWO SEPARATE BUILDINGS, THEY WERE ORIGINALLY MEANT TO BE. THE FORUM LAST WEEK ABOARD NUMBER STATED THIS WAS FALSE INFORMATION WAS NEVER THE ORIGINAL PLAN, HOWEVER, IF THEY'LL WHY IS THERE A NEWS ARTICLE FROM 2000 AND SIX STATING, EVENTUALLY, A SEPARATE MIDDLE SCHOOL BE CONSTRUCTED AT PATTERSON MILL AND THE EXISTING BUILDING WILL BECOME A 1600 FT HIGH SCHOOL. AND MAKING DECISIONS. I ASKED THE BOARD TO PLEASE ADHERE TO THE GUIDELINES EXAMINE ALL THE MANY POSSIBILITIES AND CONSIDER THE SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL IMPACT.

GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES.

YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. GOOD EVENING. I'M MEGAN PERKINS. I LIVE IN PEWTER DAY, WHICH FALLS IN MHS FLOOR FOR THE REDISTRICTING PLAN FOR MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL. I MOVED TO HARVARD COUNTY 11 TURNS DEAL WITH THE BRASS. YOU SPENT COUNTLESS HOURS EXTINCTION, KNEES IN SCHOOL. IT WAS THE BIGGEST PART OF OUR DECISION. WE MOVED THROUGH TO SEND OUR CHILDREN CONSTANTLY BUILDING PATTERSON MILL, THE THEATER GET COMMUNITY ACTIVELY INVESTED IN SCHOOL, AND WE MAKE UP A LARGE PERSON OF THE PEOPLE TO THE CURRENT MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL OF THOSE MOVES ARE DETRIMENTAL FOR CHILDREN. I IMPLORE THEY DRILL UP. PATRICK SMELL IS LESS THAN TWO MILES FROM HOME AND SAFE ROADS WITH LOW SPEED LIMITS. POTENTIALLY SEND OUR CHILDREN TO THE MIDDLE OR HIGH SCHOOL THAT IS FOUR TIMES THE DISTANCE AWAY OVER SEVERAL BUSY INTERSECTIONS AND DOWN MAJOR ROAD LEAST, IS NOT WHAT I CHOSE. WHEN I MOVED HERE. THESE RULES ARE DOCUMENTED MAJOR SAFETY AND CONGESTION STARTED BY THE HARFORD COUNTY GOVERNMENT.

DEFINITELY THIS INJECT IS IN DIRECT VIOLATION OF FIGHTING PRINCIPLE. FIVE. WE'VE SEEN NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOLS THAT OPTIMIZE PROXIMITY TO HOME. THIS IS ALSO IN DIRECT CONFLICT OF GUIDING PRINCIPLE. SIX CONSIDER TRANSPORTATION IMPACT AND LIMIT TIME NUMBER. IT IS NOT ONLY IMPOSSIBLE TRANSPORTATION BUT ALSO TRANSPORTATION TO OFFICE POOL ACTIVITIES, WHICH NORMALLY OCCUR DURING PEAK TRAFFIC TIMES, WHICH WILL DOUBLE AND TRIPLE THE TIME NEEDED TO GET CHILDREN'S ACTIVITIES ON TIME. ADDITIONALLY, GETTING CHILDREN TO SOCIAL ACTIVITIES IN A NEW COMMUNITY. IT'S AN EXTRA CHALLENGE WHEN THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ALSO LIVE SEVEN OR MORE MILES AWAY. I DO NOT BELIEVE CHANGING COHORTS AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL LEVEL IS FAIR AND EQUITABLE CAR CHILDREN. OUR CHILDREN LOVED ONE SIDE, WEAK FIELD AND THE CHILDREN. THEY'RE IN SCHOOL WITH THEIR ANNOUNCE SPLIT AT THEIR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, ASKED THE SEQUENCES, THREE DIFFERENT MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL. IT'S JUST NOT FAIR TO THEIR WELL BEING OR THE FRIENDSHIPS THEY BUILD OVER THERE. SIX YEARS IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. I IMPLORE THE BOARD OF EDUCATION TAKES CARES OF THE GUIDING PRINCIPLES THAT FOURTH BY THE DISTRICT WHEN THEY BEGAN THIS PROCESS. I'M REVERSES THEOLOGICAL DECISIONS BALANCING

[01:10:01]

ENROLLMENTS BUT NOT COME AT THE NEGATIVE IMPACT OF ANY COMMUNITY OR OUR CHILDREN.

THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING.

PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. HI. HOW CIRCUIT THE PETER DICK COMMUNITY. AND ME. YES, FOR THE OTHER PARENTS HAVE SAID IT BEAUTIFULLY. WELL, WITH ALL THE FACTS SENDING OUR NEIGHBORHOOD. EIGHT MILES AWAY WHEN WE HAVE A SCHOOL LOCALLY HERE TWO MILES AWAY, DOESN'T MAKE SENSE TO EMPLOY THE BEFORE THE BOARD LOOK HARD DECISION TO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL COMPLETE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. HELLO. MY NAME IS DODGE. I AM FROM KELLY ENGLAND NEIGHBORHOOD IN BEL AIR, WHICH IS A M H S SIX. UM I HAD THREE KIDS ONE IN ELEMENTARY, ONE MIDDLE AND THIRD ONE IN HIGH SCHOOL GOING TO BE IN HIGH SCHOOL. NEXT YEAR. WE MOVED IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD EIGHT YEARS AGO.

EXACTLY. AND SPECIFICALLY, WE HAVE BEATEN THE OTHER COMMENTS FROM A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE. FOR SCHOOLS. AND MY KIDS. ARE SO MUCH INTERESTED IN THIS. BIOMED PROGRAMME THAT'S OFFERED IN BEL AIR, HIGH SCHOOL, AND MY GIRLS HAVE WORKED SO HARD. AND NOW DID THIS NEWS. WE REALLY UPSET BECAUSE IT MAKES NO SENSE. THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM IN TWO MIDDLE SCHOOLS AND BECAUSE OF.

THOSE TWO MIDDLE SCHOOLS WERE JUST REDISTRICTING, 10 OTHER SCHOOLS I'M SURE UM. THERE IS A PROBLEM. THERE IS A SOLUTION. THERE MUST BE ANOTHER WAY OF SOLVING THIS PARTICULAR PROBLEM BECAUSE IT JUST IMPACTS SO MANY PEOPLE. WE ARE JUST COMING FROM THE HOOKER COUNTY. LOT OF SCHOOL EDUCATION. YOU KNOW THE BUILDING IN BEL AIR? UH DOWNTOWN. WE WERE PROTESTING THERE AND TONS OF OTHER FAMILIES. IT'S JUST IT DOESN'T SEEM RIGHT. IT HASN'T BEEN WELL THOUGHT OF DID PLAN. MAKES NO SENSE. WE HAVE BEEN, UM. IMPACTED NEGATIVE MY KIDS A LOT OF KIDS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, SO I'M REQUESTING EVERYBODY. PEOPLE WHO ARE DECISION MAKERS.

IN THIS CASE, PLEASE RECONSIDER. AND DON'T COUNT THESE CHILDREN AS NUMBERS.

PLEASE LOOK AT ALTERNATE SOLUTIONS. AND TRY TO FIX THE PROBLEM. THE MIDDLE SCHOOL PROBLEMS EITHER SHORT TERM AND LONG TERM RATHER THAN SHUFFLING 15 OTHER POOLS. A LOT MORE TO SAY, BUT BECAUSE OF TIME I'M JUST GOING TO KEEP IT SHORT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES.

YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. GOOD EVENING. I'M SHARON DOUGHERTY, A RESIDENT OF THEATRE DAY WITHIN THIS CS SEVEN AND MHS FOUR BOUNDARIES. ACCORDING TO FLOW, THERE HAS BEEN AN EMPHASIS FROM CREATING SINGLE THEATER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. HOWEVER AN EXCEPTION HAS BEEN MADE FOR HIM, SAID WAKEFIELD. OUR SCHOOL HAS A LARGE 85 POPULATION BUT ARE NO MORE THAN TWO TIMES THE SIZE OF THE SAME SCHOOLS THAT ARE BEING INSISTED UPON A SINGLE THEATERS.

ONCE YOU REMOVE OUR COUNTYWIDE PRE K PROGRAM. WHY ARE WE TARGETING A VERY SMALL PERCENTAGE OF KIDS FROM HOMESTEAD WAKEFIELD AWAY FROM THEIR COMPUTER POSITION AND STRETCHING THEM EVEN FURTHER INTO A THREE FEEDER SCHOOLS TO INCLUDE SOUTHAMPTON? SATURDAY WILL BE HOME TO 51 MIDDLE SCHOOLERS IN 2022, BUT DUE TO CAPACITY ISSUES THAT PATERSON MIDDLE ARE LONGSTANDING NEIGHBORHOOD IS BEING UPROOTED TO SOUTHAMPTON. BETTER THAN MILK CURRENTLY ENROLLED THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGE OF BOUNDARY EXCEPTIONS AT 7% OR ROUGHLY 50 STUDENTS, WHILE I UNDERSTAND THE NEED FOR BOUNDARY EXCEPTIONS FOR STAFF AND ELEMENTARY YEARS. SAY TROOPS COULD NOT BE GIVEN PRIORITY OVER STEPHEN AND SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS SINCE THEY DO NOT REQUIRE THE SAME NEED FOR AFTER SCHOOL CARE, OUR TRANSPORTATION IMPACTED. THE MILTON RATE IS ALSO SIGNIFICANT. THE FACT THAT THIS ROUTE ALREADY EXISTS. VERY SMALL PORTION DOESN'T MAKE IT RIGHT. ONLY A MINUTE EVER SHOULD HAVE EXISTED, GIVEN ITS EXTENDED DURATION AND WELL KNOWN STATUS AS A CONGESTED AND DANGEROUS THROAT. WE CAN AND SHOULD DO BETTER FOR ALL OF OUR STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY WHEN PATTERSON MILL IS NOT PROJECTED

[01:15:02]

TO BE OVER CAPACITY. ALSO WE CANNOT ONLY LOOK AT THIS FROM A BUSING STANDPOINT, AS WE WILL NOW BE PLACING NEARLY 100 NEW TEENAGE DRIVERS ON THIS ROAD. THOSE STATED ON THURSDAY THAT GUIDING PRINCIPLES ARE NOW BEING USED BY THE EXTENT TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE. THESE PRINCIPLES WERE VOTED ON AND PROVIDED TO BLOW BY HARFORD COUNTY TO COMPLETE THEIR JOBS.

WE EITHER HAVE PRINCIPLES OR BE DONE. WE CANNOT PICK AND CHOOSE WHICH COMMUNITIES RECEIVE THEIR BENEFITS, BUT DISMISSED THE SAME PRINCIPLES FOR OTHERS. I URGED THE BOARD TO REVIEW THE IMPACT BEING MADE TO SATURDAY IN ACCORDANCE WITH OUR HARFORD COUNTY VALUES AND PRINCIPLES.

THANK YOU. YES. IMAGE FOR READ EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING.

PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS LUIS AND I AM OCCURRING RESIDENT OF THE CS SEVEN. A.M. H S FOUR REGION AS DEFINED BY THE HCPS BALANCING ENROLLMENT PROCESS. MY SON GRADUATING CLASS OF 2013 FROM PATTERSON MILL HIGH SCHOOL, AND EVEN THOUGH I DON'T HAVE ANY MORE SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN, IT IS IMPORTANT FOR ME TO SPEAK OUT ON BEHALF OF PARENTS IN OUR COMMUNITY. AS WITH MANY OF ITS RESIDENTS, I CHOSE YOU TODAY SPECIFICALLY FOR ITS PROXIMITY TO PATERSON MIDDLE HIGH SCHOOL.

MY HUSBAND AND I BOTH WORK FULL TIME JOBS WHERE WE DON'T GET HOME UNTIL AFTER SIX. WE CHOSE THE NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE OUR CHILD HAD THE ABILITY TO BE PART OF AFTER SCHOOL EVENTS WITHIN A CLOSE ENOUGH DISTANCE TO WALK HOME. WE WERE FORTUNATE THAT LIVING IN CITA DATE DID JUST THAT. IT ALLOWED MY SON TO PARTICIPATE AFTER SCHOOL, EXTRA CURRICULAR PROXIMITY OF SCHOOL TO NEIGHBORHOOD WAS CRITICAL FOR WORKING PARENTS LIKE US MOVING CS SEVEN IMAGE AS FOUR REGION OUT OF PATERSON MIDDLE SCHOOL, NOT ONLY WILL GO AGAINST GUIDING PRINCIPLE FIVE AND THAT IS TO MAINTAIN NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOLS. OPHTHALMIC PROXIMITY TO HOME.

IT WILL ELIMINATE THE ABILITY FOR KIDS WITH WORKING PARENTS LIKE US TO ENGAGE IN AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES. THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME AND GIVING ME THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. I DO SINCERELY HOPE THAT YOU WILL PUT PROXIMITY INTO CONSIDERATION FOR CS SEVEN MH FOUR REGION DURING THE H. GPS BALANCING ENROLLMENT PROCESS.

THANK YOU. AGAIN GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING.

PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SON. MY NAME IS DOWN AND FALLING AND I LIVE IN THEATRE DAY COMMUNITY AND OPPOSED TO THE POST CHANGED THE M S. H FOR SPEAKING MY COMMUNITY SATURDAY OUT OF PATERSON. NO. AND HERE'S WHY. I PURPOSELY AM LIMITING THE GUIDING PRINCIPLES SINCE IT WAS MADE CLEAR BY SLOW IN THE LAST MEETING, BUT THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THEY PLAN TO ADHERE TO. TODAY HAS BEEN ATTENDING PATERSON MILK THE 14 YEARS SINCE ITS OPENING IN 2007. ANDERSON MELROSE ENDS AT THE ENTRANCE OF OUR COMMUNITY. IT'S A SHORT TWO MINUTE RIDE FROM PATTERSON MILL A BIT BETTER DAY. PATERSON WAS SPECIFICALLY BUILT TO OFFLOAD THE SCHOOLS FELL THERE. SOUTH CASTON FEMALE TONIGHT, BOSTON, ABERDEEN AND EDGEWOOD IN PREPARATION FOR BRACK. SEPARATE MIDDLE SCHOOL WAS TO BE BUILT TO MAKE THE HIGH SCHOOL 1600 FT HIGH SCHOOL WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS PLAN? AND THOSE MIDDLE SCHOOL FUNDS. THE DATA DOES NOT SUPPORT GROWTH IN THE PATERSON MILL HIGH SCHOOL.

THE PROJECTED NUMBERS NO DECLINE IN HIGH SCHOOL ATTENDANCE AT PATTERSON MILL'S BUT GROWTH 15 MIL TONIGHT. THE DATA DOESN'T SUPPORT OVERCROWDING AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL OF PATERSON. NO, THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER ACTIONS TO EXHAUST BEFORE MOVING CEDAR DAY OUT OF PATERSON ONLY TO OVERCROWD SEEN THEM. IT IS NOT A LONG TERM SOLUTION AND WILL RESULT IN ANOTHER REZONING IN THE NEAR FUTURE, ESPECIALLY WITH THE MASSIVE DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA FOR ITSELF. THERE ARE BETTER OPTIONS TO COMMUNITIES LOCATED CLOSER IN PROXIMITY TO C. MILTON WRIGHT BEFORE REMOVING THE KIDS FROM SATURDAY, WHICH IS OVER SEVEN MILES IN 20 MINUTES AWAY ON A GOOD DEBT. THE FOCUS TO BE ON KEEPING KIDS FOR THEIR LOCAL COMMUNITIES, NOT PLUCKING THE PERFECT NUMBER OF KIDS FROM A COMMUNITY OVER SEVERAL MILES AWAY. THE KIDS AND PETER DAY OF MORE THAN NUMBERS TO SATISFY RATIOS. MOVING OUR GROUP OF STUDENTS.

OTHER COMMUNITY SCHOOLS REMOVE THE STUDENTS FROM THEIR CURRENT COHORT AND THEIR EXISTING COMMUNITIES. I CAN ONLY ESTIMATE THE BUS TIME FROM 5 TO 10 MINUTES, LENGTHENING TO OVER 45 MINUTES. WHEN YOU ACCOUNT FOR ALL THE STOPS AND TRAFFIC ALONG THE ROUTE, THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT EXTENDED DURATION AND BEST TIME AND COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY. YOU HAVE REACHED THAT MARK. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW IN THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING

[01:20:02]

BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMM STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING.

PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS TANYA GALLEON. I'D LIKE TO TAKE A MINUTE TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO THE STUDENTS OF HARFORD COUNTY AND FOR ALLOWING ME TO SPEAK TONIGHT. I'M HERE TO SPEAK IN REFERENCE TO THE BALANCING ENROLLMENTS HAPPENING IN OUR COUNTY. I CURRENTLY HAVE A FIRST GRADER AND KINDERGARTNER MEADOWVALE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND A FOUR YEAR OLD AND A LEARNING TOGETHER PROGRAM AT HAVE THE GRACE ELEMENTARY WE LIVE ON AL DINO ROAD ARE LOCATED IN THE C E SEVEN. ELEMENTARY MAP, BALCO ENROLLMENTS AND THEY HAVE THIS CHANGING TO CHURCHILL ELEMENTARY AND ACCOUNTING FOR LESS THAN 10. TOTAL STUDENTS WERE ALSO A PART OF MHS SINCE. OF THE MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL MAP, WHICH HAS US CHANGING TO ABERDEEN AND ACCOUNTING FOR ONLY 35 TOTAL STUDENTS. WE ARE IN AN AREA THAT HAS HISTORICALLY BEEN ZONE HAVE A DEGREE OF SCHOOL AND WE ARE SAD TO THINK WE COULD BE POTENTIALLY UPROOTED FROM THEY HAVE THE GRACE COMMUNITY OF WHICH WE'VE ALWAYS BEEN A PART.

WE BUILD OUR HOUSE ON THE SAME FAMILY FARM WHERE MY HUSBAND AND HIS FATHER WERE BOTH RAISED KNOWING THAT OUR CHILDREN WOULD ATTEND, HAVING A GREAT SCHOOLS LIKE BOTH OF THEM DID DATING BACK 90 PLUS YEARS. GROWING UP IN A COMMUNITY WHERE EVERYONE KNOWS EVERYONE IS SO IMPORTANT TO US, AND THAT'S ANOTHER REASON WHY WE CHOSE THIS LOCATION OVER OTHERS. MY HUSBAND IS A FARMER AND AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF THE LEVEL OF VOLUNTEER FIRE COMPANY. HAS BEEN FOR OVER 25 YEARS SERVING PARTS OF THE HABIT OF GREAT AREA I COULD GO ON AND ON ABOUT HOW THE BAR ROOTS ARE HERE AND HAVE A GREAT. THESE DO NOT TAKE THESE CHILDREN AWAY FROM THE HABIT, A GREAT COMMUNITY THAT THEY'VE BEEN A PART OF THEIR WHOLE LIFE. THEY SAY IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE CHILDREN WELL, MEADOWVALE ELEMENTARY HAVING A GRACE ELEMENTARY AND THE ENTIRE HOW DEGREES COMMUNITY AS PART OF OUR VILLAGE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME, AND AS IT'S BEEN SAID MANY, MANY TIMES BEFORE WE ARE THE GRACE. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS RACHAEL COOMBS AND I WANT TO THANK THE BOARD MEMBERS FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY. UM I AM A RESIDENT OF THE STUDENT COMMUNITY CURRENTLY IN THE NHS FOR AREA. THEY HAVE TWO CHILDREN CURRENTLY ATTENDING PATERSON MALE MIDDLE HIGH SCHOOL. IT HAS BEEN OUR COMMUNITY SCHOOL SINCE ITS CONSTRUCTION IN 2000 AND SEVEN BY CAR TO PATTERSON MILL FROM OUR COMMUNITY. IT'S JUST UNDER THREE MILES AND A MERE 1.5 MILES FROM PATTERSON MILL. FIRST DURING THE JUNE 3RD MEETING. KATHY BENDIS, HPC S DIRECTOR OF TRANSPORTATION, STATED THAT BUS ROUTES IN MHS SPORTS TRAVEL IN A NORTHERLY DIRECTION. MAKING THEM EQUIDISTANT 50 MILTON, RIGHT, AND PATTERNS AND MILK. THAT MAY BE TRUE FOR SOME NEIGHBORHOOD, BUT IT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE FOR OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AS OUR BUS ROUTES DO NOT TRAVEL IN THE NORTHERN LEAGUE DIRECTION. SECONDLY THERE ARE SEVERAL COMMUNITIES NORTH OF PATTERSON MILL THAT ARE SIGNIFICANTLY CLOSER TO SEE NELSON, RIGHT AND SOUTH CAMPAIGNS AND FURTHER FROM THE PATERSON, MELVIN, OUR COMMUNITY. IT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED FOR REBALANCING RATHER THAN OUR COMMUNITY. THERE ARE ALSO SEVERAL COMMUNITIES SOUTH OF PATTERNS SMELL THAT ARE MUCH FURTHER AWAY FROM PATTERSON MILL THAN OUR COMMUNITY. THAT SHOULD ALSO BE CONSIDERED FOR ADJUSTMENT BEFORE OUR NEIGHBORHOOD IS CONSIDERED, AND FINALLY AS A TWO PARENT WORKING HOUSEHOLD WITH KIDS INVOLVED IN SPORTS AND AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES. WE HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO RELY ON OTHER PATERSON. NO PARENTS. WHO LIVED LESS THAN A MILE AWAY TO PICK UP AND DROP OFF OUR KIDS AT HOME FOR ACTIVITIES WHEN OUR WORK SCHEDULE WOULD NOT ALLOW. THIS WOULD NO LONGER BE AN OPTION IF OUR KIDS ARE MOVED TO A SCHOOL MUCH FARTHER AWAY. THIS PROPOSAL DEMONSTRATES THE LACK OF KNOWLEDGE. THE BELLER SOUTH COMMUNITY OF THE COLOR OF THE SATURDAY NEIGHBORHOOD IN PARTICULAR, AND IT'S JUST A POORLY RESEARCH PROPOSALS. I STRONGLY URGED THE MEMBERS OF THE BOARD AS MEMBERS OF HARPER COUNTY END OF OUR COMMUNITY. TO EXAMINE THIS PROPOSAL AND HELP DEVELOP DEVELOP SOLUTIONS THAT ARE GROUNDED IN REALITY, ADHERE TO THE GUIDING PRINCIPLES. YOU HAVE REACHED THE TWO MINUTE MARK INDIVIDUAL, THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. HELLO. HEATHER RE DENIED THE PRESIDENT OF THE SATURDAY COMMUNITY. I CURRENTLY HAVE THREE CHILDREN IN HARVARD COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS. I'M HERE TO EXPRESS MY CONCERN ABOUT

[01:25:04]

THOSE MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL REDISTRICTING OF HER SATURDAY CHILDREN. THE CURRENT PROPOSAL, CHEF STUDENTS OUT OF OUR CURRENT COMMUNITY A PATTERSON MILL AND MOVES US TO SOUTHAMPTON AND C. MILTON WRIGHT. THESE PROPOSED CHANGES ARE IN DIRECT VIOLATION OF SEVERAL THE GUIDING PRINCIPLES PUT FORTH BY HARVARD 20 SCHOOLS, INCLUDING GUIDING PRINCIPLE 5 18 NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOLS AND KEEP COMMUNITIES INTACT. IN 2007. PATTERSON MILL, MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOLS BUILT AND HAS BEEN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD SKILL SET. WE ARE LESS THAN TWO MILES BETTER SMELL MIDDLE AND HIGH AND WITH THE PROPOSED CHANGE THE FEMALE WE WOULD BE OVER SEVEN MILES FROM OUR SCHOOL AND, MORE IMPORTANTLY, COMPLETELY TRANSFERRED TO A DIFFERENT COMMUNITY. SO DEVELOPED THOSE TWO MILES ARE CRITICAL. WITHIN THOSE TWO MILES IS THE HEART OF OUR COMMUNITY TO OUR CHILDREN PLAY WHERE WE STOPPED IS WHERE WE GO TO CHURCH. IT'S WHERE WE GO TO DINNER. WE ALREADY GO SHOPPING. IT IS OUR CHILDREN'S VILLAGE.

IT'S WHERE THEY LIVE AND WHERE THEY GROW. HELPING STUDENTS FROM ELEMENTARY TO MIDDLE TO HIGH NOON AS COHORT HAS BEEN A HIGH PRIORITY FOR HARFORD COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS. THE FOCUS HAS LED TO DECISIONS TO KEEP AS MANY ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS AS SINGLE FEEDERS AS POSSIBLE.

BUT OUR CURRENT COZUMEL MUCH BULL HOMES AWAY CELLS WILL NOW BECOME A THREE FEEDER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND FURTHER DIVIDE OUR CHILDREN'S COHORT. MOST RECENT BALANCING ENROLLMENT THAT WAS DONE IN 2011 LEFT EMERSON ELEMENTARY UNDER CAPACITY FOR ONLY TWO YEARS. SHUFFLING ALL OF THESE STUDENTS BROWN MOVING THEM OUTSIDE OF THEIR COMMUNITIES, CREATING NEW THREE FEEDER ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, MOVING THEM FROM SCHOOLS LESS THAN TWO MILES AWAY TO SCHOOLS OVER SEVEN MILES AWAY. SOLVING ANY OF OUR PROBLEMS WITH OVERCROWDING. WE NEED TO LOOK AT REAL LONG TERM SOLUTIONS AND NOT KEEP SHUFFLING OUR KIDS AROUND EVERY FEW YEARS. AS AN EXAMPLE OF THE REAL OUT OF THE BOX IDEA. PATERSON MIDDLE MIDDLE SCHOOL FORECAST OF 2026. IS THAT THE SCHOOL WILL BE OVER CAPACITY BY 113 STUDENTS. THE HIGH SCHOOL YOU HAVE REACHED THE TWO MINUTE MARK, BUT THANK YOU. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING.

YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RAIN WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. HI. MY NAME IS COURTNEY SHANNON AND I'M CALLING FROM THE MONARCH. ONE NEIGHBORHOOD, PART OF MHS FOR MY COMMENTS OUT OF CONCERN. THE ADVISORY BOARD IS NOT ALIGNED WITH THEIR CUTTING PRINCIPLES THAT'S WORTH AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS PROCESS. WAS EXTREMELY CONTRADICTORY DURING THE FARM ON JUNE 3RD WHEN THE DIRECTOR OF TRANSPORTATION MENTIONED PROXIMITY TO SCHOOL DOES NOT THE STATE. WHICH FOR YOU, MAYBE DISTRICT THIS BILL. THIS GOES DIRECTLY AGAINST ONE OF THE COUNTY'S GUIDING PRINCIPLES REGARDING COMMUNITY SPORTS. HOW CAN PROXIMITY NOT DICTATE BUT BEFORE YOU GO TO, BUT THAT'S WILLING TO MILES FROM PATTERSON PUTS US IN THE PATERSON COMMUNITIES. IT'S SURROUNDED WITH FAMILY. YOU'RE LIKELY BUILT RELATIONSHIPS WITH OF ELEMENTARY YEARS. IT'S OUR COMMUNITY WORK BY SPORTS WALKED ABOUT A SNOWBALL WITH FRIENDS. RIDE BIKES FROM ONE FRIEND'S HOUSE TO ANOTHER. THIS IS WHY MANY PARENTS SUCH SAYS IN THIS AREA OF FELLOW HIMSELF. AS I SUPPORT IN THIS TOWN, HE'S GUIDING PRINCIPLES, COMMUNITY SCHOOLS AND COHORTS OR THE UTMOST IMPORTANT IT SEEMS LIKE THIS PRINCIPLE, ALONG WITH A FEW OTHERS MAY HAVE BEEN IGNORED. AND I MEAN, JUST FOR WAS PUT TOGETHER. WHY ARE WE SPENDING CHILDREN WHO LIVE IN THE COMMUNITY OF BEL AIR CELLS? THE OTHER SIDE OF CHANNELS OF BEL AIR, NORTH SECONDARY EDUCATION, THUS MAKING HOMESTEAD WAKEFIELD AGE TRIPLES THEATER ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS.

DURING THE LAST FOUR UM EMERTON VICTORY BRING FACTORIES AND WILLIAM IS THINK CHANGE EVENTS WERE ALL QUESTIONS. I CAN AND ALL OF THOSE TENTS FOR COOL GUY ANALYSTS. THOSE DUNES WERE CREATED OR CHANGE TO MAKE THOSE FOOLS OR TO MAINTAIN THEM A SINGLE FEEDERS AGAIN. WHY IS THIS NOT DIGNITY CONSIDERATION? MHM FOUR. WE AS A NEIGHBORHOOD ARE ASKING THE BOARD TO PLEASE RAISE THESE ISSUES TO THE ADVISORY BOARD THAT WHY ARE WE NOT LOOKING AT LONG TERM SOLUTIONS LOOKING AT HOW WE CAN UTILIZE OUR RESOURCES AND BUILDING WITHOUT STARING APART COMMUNITIES. WHAT MEANS THIS? CAN WE MAKE BLOOD BUILDINGS AND FACILITIES TO BETTER SERVE THE COMMUNITY INSTEAD OF WASTING MONEY TO POOL? COMMUNITIES UPLOAD HAVE REACHED TWO MINUTE, MARK. THANK YOU. EVENING YOU ARE NOW IN THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING.

PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. HI. MY NAME IS AMANDA CHAROLAIS NO AS A RESIDENT OF THE FAIRWAY COMMUNITY, I'M AGAINST THREE DISTRICT PLANS FOR MHS. FOUR MOVED TO C. MILTON WRIGHT AND SOUTHAMPTON MIDDLE SCHOOL.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES TO HAVE A DISTRICT WIDE AND FULL SCOPE PERSPECTIVE OF INDIVIDUAL

[01:30:05]

SCHOOL CAPACITIES AND STUDENT POPULATION PROJECTIONS. THE BALANCE ENROLLMENTS WILL LIKELY NOT EVER BE MET. CONSIDERING THE LATEST ENROLLMENT BALANCING IN 2011 FOR EMERTON ELEMENTARY, NOT WORKING. THEY WERE ONLY UNDER CAPACITY FOR TWO YEARS AND. AFTER THAT, SHUFFLING THEM TURNED INTO AN ON PAPER SOLUTION BECAUSE THEY'RE OVER CAPACITY NOW, 2026 PATTERSON MILL MIDDLE MODELS SHOW THAT THE SCHOOL WILL BE OVER CAPACITY BY 113 CHILDREN. AND THE HIGH SCHOOL BE UNDER CAPACITY BY 127 STUDENTS. LOW COST SOLUTION WOULD BE TO SHARE PHYSICAL ROOMS AND HUMAN RESOURCES IN THE HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING, WHICH IS THUNDER CAPACITY OR. PLAN TO BE IN ORDER TO KEEP CURRENT BOUND THE BOUNDARIES FOR MINIMAL IMPACT TO THE MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS. MY CHILDREN HAVE CLOSE FRIENDSHIPS WITH KIDS, ENGLAND, ANGUS AND OTHER NEIGHBORHOODS NOT SLATED TO GO WITH THIS MOVE. PLANNING THIS CHANGE FOR 2022 WILL MEAN MY ELDEST SON, WHO HAS BEEN A HAVE TO GET PATTERSON MILL MIDDLE FOR THREE YEARS ENTERING HIGH SCHOOL THIS FALL WILL HAVE ONLY ONE YEAR ON THE, UM FOOTBALL TEAM AND THEN BE FORCED TO LEAVE HIS HUSKIES NATIONS TO GO PLAY AGAINST THEM AS THE RIVALS THE MOST THINGS.

THAT'S NOT EXACTLY GREAT FOR A CHILD'S MORALE. MY YOUNGEST SON WILL LOSE CONNECTIONS WITH 50% OF HIS CLASSMATES BECAUSE RIGHT NOW FROM SAID WEAK FIELD IS ALREADY A TWO FEEDER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. AFTER ONLY HAVING ONE YEAR WITH HIS NEWLY ESTABLISHED FRIEND. GROUPS IN MIDDLE SCHOOL SLASH IS COHORT FRIENDS EVEN FURTHER, EVEN THOUGH HCPS RECOGNIZES ESTABLISHING AND KEEPING COHORT AS IDEAL FOR DEVELOPMENT. HAVE NO QUALMS ABOUT RIPPING THESE PARTICULAR CHILDREN AWAY FROM FRIENDS TO A NEW SCHOOL, WHERE MOST STUDENTS WILL ALREADY HAVE ESTABLISHED FRIENDSHIPS AND TEAMMATES. I ECHO THE YOU HAVE REACHED THE TWO MINUTE, MARK. THANK YOU.

GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES.

YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BE GETTING YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. MY NAME IS MATT WINNER. I'M THE PARENT FOR TWO STUDENTS ATTENDING RED PUMP ELEMENTARY. APPRECIATE THE COMMENTS MADE BY DR BAUER AND OTHER BOARD MEMBERS AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS MEETING REGARDING THE BALANCE ACROSS THAT. WHILE I UNDERSTAND IS A PROCESS HERE. EARLY PROCESS. I BELIEVE THAT EARLY, YOU KNOW, I'M GOING AT IT'S IMPORTANT. DR BAUER ACKNOWLEDGED SUMMER VISIONS HAVE BEEN MADE AS A RESULT OF THE PUBLIC COMMENT PROCESS. HAVE BEEN ENGAGED THROUGHOUT THE BALANCING ENROLLMENT PROCESS, ESPECIALLY AREA C W SICK, WHICH WOULD DIVIDE THE MARYWOOD COMMUNITY BETWEEN OUR CURRENT ZONES FULL OF RED PUMP ELEMENTARY AND FAR ASLEEP. THE RESPONSES TO SOME OF THE QUESTIONS I'VE HEARD FROM THE PUBLIC UPDATE BEATING HAVE CAUSED ME SOME CONCERN.

ONE OF THE QUESTIONS I SUBMITTED FOCUSED ON THE DATA OBTAINED FROM THE COMMUNITY SERVICE. THIS DATA INDICATED THAT ONE OF THE TOP CONCERNS OF FAMILIES SPLIT THE NEED FOR THEIR STUDENTS TO CHANGE SCHOOLS. THIS CONCERN IS EVEN GREATER IN CENTRAL WEST AREA.

DURING THE LAST MEETING, THIS DATA POINT SEEMED TO BE DISMISSED AS IT WAS SHARED THAT THIS CONCERN WAS ELEVATED BECAUSE FAMILIES IN THIS AREA THOUGHT IT MORE LIKELY THAT THEIR STUDENT WE NEED TO CHANGE SCHOOLS. WELL, THIS MAY BE A CONTRIBUTING FACTOR. IT'S UNLIKELY THE ONLY FACTOR THIS CONCERN SHOULD BE FURTHER EXPLORED. BETTER UNDERSTAND WHY FAMILIES ARE EXPRESSING CONCERN. IT IS CERTAIN THAT SCHOOL LEADERS AND ALL STAFFING HAVE WORKED DILIGENTLY TO FORM BONDS WITH FAMILY. FAMILIES DO NOT WISH TO BREAK THE BOMB IN HOPES OF FORMING NEW ONE OF THE GUIDING PRINCIPLES OF THE ADVISORY TEAM. MAINTAINING COMMUNITY SCHOOL. DURING THE LAST MEETING, IT WAS SURE THAT THE ADVISORY TEAM STRIVES TO MAINTAIN ITS GUIDING PRINCIPLES. IT IS NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE. THESE ARE TRULY GUIDING PRINCIPLES. WE MUST TREAT THEM THE GUARDRAIL. KEEP US FROM GOING OFF TRACK, NOT A SET OF STANDARDS THAT WE SEEK TO FOLLOW, AS LONG AS IT DOESN'T INTERFERE WITH OUR OBJECTIVE. ONE OF THE CORE VALUES HCPS IN OUR STRATEGIC PLAN IS CREATING RECIPROCAL RELATIONSHIPS WITHIN. ONE OF OUR LONG TERM GOALS, ENGAGE FAMILIES AND THE COMMUNITY TO BE PARTNERS IN EDUCATION. SIMPLY PROVIDING OPPORTUNITY HERE THE CONCERNS AND VALUES IN THE COMMUNITY THAT THAT CONSTITUTE A PARTNERSHIP. THE SCHOOL SYSTEMS. THERE'S A RESPONSIBILITY, DISTURB THE COMMUNITY AND ENSURE THAT THE VALUES OF THE COMMUNITY ARE REFLECTED IN DECISIONS. IN THIS CASE, THE COMMUNITY VALUES THINK YOU HAVE REACHED THE TWO MINUTE MARK. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING, YOU RIGHT NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING.

PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. THE NAME OF BREACH WALKERS. HAVE CONTINUING CONCERNS WITH THE HERP ACCOUNTING, PUBLIC EXPLOSIVES.

UM. WHY IS IT THAT OUR CHILDREN, OUR FUTURE ARE ALWAYS IN LAST PLACE. WHY ARE CHILDREN SUFFERING THROUGH WEARING MASK ALL DAY IN SCHOOLS? MY HUSBAND RECENTLY TOOK OUR FIRST GRADE DAUGHTER TO THE LIBRARY. SHE WAS SKIPPING THROUGH THE HOURS A BOOK TURNED BRENDA, MY HUSBAND AND SAID, DADDY, I'M NOT WEARING A NEXT. AND SHE THOUGHT FOR A MOMENT AND ASKED

[01:35:05]

WHY SHE HAD TO WEAR A MASK AT SCHOOL. SHE SAID. HER SCHOOL HAS A LIBRARY, JEW. OUR CHILDREN ARE NOT POOLS. THEY SEE THE HYPOCRISY IN THIS. AND YOU TOLD HER TONIGHT WE WERE SPEAKING TO HER PRINCIPLES. BOSTON. AND ASKED WHAT SHE WOULD SAY HER RESPONSE WAS I DON'T LIKE TO BUY MASSIVE SPORT. GOVERNOR HOGAN LIFTED THE MASK MANDATE, AND YET OUR CHILDREN ARE STILL BEING FORCED TO WEAR THEM. WHEN WILL THE MASK MANDATE BE LIFTED IN OUR SCHOOL? YOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY LAST SUMMER TO GUIDE HER OWN DESTINY, WITH DECISION MAKING.

YOU FORCED THE STATE TO GIVE YOU GUIDELINES. YOU COULD SIT IDLE AND NOT LEAD OUR CHILDREN INTO THE FUTURE. WE NEED LEADERSHIP FROM THIS GROUP. THE SECOND ISSUE IS THE VIRTUAL PLATFORMS. DO NOT WANT THOSE YOU CHOOSE. TO RETURN TO PROFESSIONAL SCHOOL TO BE UNDERFUNDED BECAUSE THE VIEW IS PUSHING. FURTHER VIRTUAL LEARNING AS AN ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION. THE NEXT TOPIC IS THE REDISTRICTING PLANS. 650,000 SPENT ON THAT. ONE OF MANY FINANCIALLY IRRESPONSIBLE DECISION. WHEN THE FIGHTING UPON WHERE TO MOVE YOU WOULD BE REMISS IF YOU DON'T THINK PARENTS ARE BASING DECISIONS ON SPECIFIC BOOK. NOT HCPS, BUT SPECIFIC SPORTS. MY FINAL CONCERN IS CRITICAL RACE THEORY. I'M ADAMANTLY OPPOSED TO THIS CURRICULUM BEING TAUGHT TO OUR CHILDREN. THESE ARE VERY REAL ISSUES GOING ON IN OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM. YOU ALL OWE IT TO THE PARENTS AND CHILDREN TO BE VIGILANT AND TO PROTECT THE FUTURE VIRTUE HAVE REACHED THE TWO MINUTE, MARK. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. HELLO. GOOD EVENING.

YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RAIN WIND 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. GOOD EVENING MONEY LATINA. OLIVER AND I'M NEVER RESIDENT OF THE MILITARY'S COMMUNITY. I'M SPEAKING TODAY, TOO STRONGLY OPPOSED AND IN JUST FOUR I HAVE FOUR CHILDREN WHO HAVE GRADUATED FROM PATTERSON MILL HIGH AND AN EIGHTH GRADER AND 1/5 GRADER. THEY HAVE ALL ATTENDED HIM. SUBWAY KILLED ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. CURRENTLY THE SCHOOL IS THAT TO PETER SCHOOL, 66% A $10 MIDDLE AND HIGH 34% OF 10 PATTERSON MILL IN HIGH MAKING HOME SUBWAY STARTED TO PETER SCHOOL. WITH THE PROPOSED PLAN, HOMESTEAD WASTED WILL BE COMING THREE FEEDER SCHOOL CUTTING THE 34% TO 16% AT SOUTHAMPTON AND C.

MILTON AND 14% THE PATERSON MILL IN MIDDLE AND HIGH. THERE AREN'T ANY THREE FEEDER ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS IN HARFORD COUNTY HCPS STATES THAT THEY WANT TO KEEP TRUE THEATER PATTERNS TO KEEP KIDS TOGETHER TO PROGRESS FROM MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL WITH THEIR PEERS MAKING THAT TRANSITION I TAKE THIS GREATER TO A BRAND NEW SCHOOL, WITH MANY UNKNOWN SUCH AS TABLOID GETS TO MY CLASS SOMETIMES OR HOW WILL I HANDLE SEVEN CLASSES? SEVEN DIFFERENT TEACHERS, THE ONLY COMFORT THEY HAVE. IS KNOWING THEY WILL HAVE SOME OF THEIR FRIENDS WITH THEM. I'M SPEAKING FROM EXPERIENCE THEY EACH ONE OF MY CHILDREN HAVE EXPRESSED THEIR CONCERN, SADNESS AND ANXIETY ABOUT BEING SEPARATED FROM SOME OF THEIR CLOSEST FRIENDS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN WITH SINCE KINDERGARTEN. I ALWAYS TRY TO REASSURE THEM THAT THEY WILL HAVE A FEW FRIENDS AND, OF COURSE, MEET OTHERS. BUT NOW HTTPS WANTS TO MAKE THAT PERCENTAGE EVEN SMALLER. HOW IS THIS LOOKING OUT FOR THE BEST INTERESTS OF OUR CHILDREN? DURING THURSDAY NIGHT'S FORM? SOMEONE ASKED A QUESTION ABOUT THE AREA LONG LAURA BUSH. ROAD AND BIRD WASHED AWAY. ASK THEM, WHY WOULD THEY BE MOVED TO MAGNOLIA MIDDLE AND EDGEWOOD HIGH ALONG WITH THE CS 11 AREA? ANSWER THE ANSWER THAT HTTPS GAVE WAS THAT THEY WANTED TO KEEP WILLIAMS GAMES, A SINGLE FEEDER SCHOOL. WE ALL KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF PETER PATTERN. HCPS IS WILLING TO SACRIFICE OUR CHILDREN MHS FOUR AREA, MAKING HIM SAID WAIT TILL 23 FEEDER SCHOOL. I STRONGLY ASK YOU TO RETHINK YOUR PROPOSED PLAN. OF NHS FOR MOVING US FROM PATTERSON MILL TO SOUTHAMPTON AND SEE MILTON'S. THERE IS NO NEED TO SACRIFICE HER CHILDREN WITH MORE STRESS AND ANXIETY, MAKING THE TRANSITION FROM ELEMENTARY TO MIDDLE EVEN HARDER WHEN WE HAVE SINGLE FEEDER SCHOOLS AVAILABLE TO HELP ALLEVIATE THE CURRENT ISSUE OF OVERCROWDING AT PATTERSON MILL. PLEASE KEEP FULLER CHASE IN THE PATERSON MILL DISC REACHED THE TWO MINUTE, MARK. THANK YOU. WE DON'T REALLY IMPORTANT OF GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. WE WOULD ALSO ASK THAT YOU LISTENING TO ANY OF THE BOARD BOARD MEETING. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING, PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. MY NAME IS JOHN TALKING. I'M CALLING IN REGARDS TO MHS THEM. AND SPECIFICALLY TO THE MEETING ON JUNE 2ND, WHERE QUESTIONS WERE RAISED ABOUT IT, AND NO JUSTIFIABLE REASON WAS GIVING GIVEN FOUR THE REDISTRICTING. KNOWN AS MHS 10. AVERAGE, AGREES MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL OR NOT OVER CAPACITY. THEY ARE THE REASON GIVEN WAS THAT IT'S

[01:40:03]

CURRENTLY AT THREE FEEDER SCHOOL, AND THEY WANTED TO MAKE IT INTO A TWO THEATER SCHOOL.

HOWEVER THEY'RE CHANGING OTHER TO THEATER SCHOOLS INTO THREE THEATER SCHOOL, SO THIS IS NOT A VALID REASON. THIS PARTICULAR CHANGE CAUSES US TO TAKE ON AN UNDUE BURDEN OF EITHER HAVING TO SELL OUR HOUSE TO MOVE AGAIN OR TO ENDURE THE TUITION. OTHER PRIVATE SCHOOL DUE TO THIS CHANGE, ALL SCHOOLS ARE NOT EQUAL AND NUMBERS DON'T LIE. PROFICIENCY SCORES DON'T BUY.

IT SEEMS THAT ONLY POLITICIANS AND SCHOOL BOARDS DO. HAS CHANGED ONLY SEEMS TO BE FOR ONE OF TWO REASONS. NUMBER ONE TO PAD BOB FORD'S POCKETS TOO. TO BOOST THE NUMBERS AND A FAILING SCHOOL BY BRINGING IN KIDS FROM OTHER AREAS. FROM BETTER PERFORMING AREAS. UH YOU KNOW, WE BOUGHT OUR HOUSE BASED ON THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. IT WAS IN AND NOW THE RULES ARE BEING CHANGED TO ACCOMMODATE OTHER PEOPLE, NOT THE CONSTITUENT. ALL WHILE WE HAVE NO DISTRICT, THE REPRESENTATION. WILL LEAD THIS AS MY FINAL COMMENT. THERE'S ■A 0% CHANCE I WILL ALLOW MY KIDS TO GO TO A SAILING SPORT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. MY NAME IS AMBER FERGUSON AND I MAY HAVE BEEN. GO RIGHT AHEAD. SOUNDS LIKE YOU KNOW THE DRILL. AMBER. YES. GO RIGHT AHEAD. THANK YOU, MA'AM. NAME'S CHAMBER FOR A GOOD THING, AND I'M IN THE BOARD TO RECONSIDER THAT ANY JUST NINE YEARS SHIFTING A PORTION OF CHURCHILL STUDENTS ABERDEEN.

THE BOARD APPROVED THE SET OF SOUTHERN GUIDING PRINCIPLES. THE DIRECTOR'S PROCESS. THANK YOU NOT BELIEVE THOSE PRINCIPLES ARE BEING UPHELD. THE FIRST PRINCIPLES FOCUSING ON IMPLEMENTING A TRANSPARENT PROCESS ENGAGEMENT OF COMMUNITY MEMBERS. OVERARCHING PROCESS MAY BE TRANSPARENT. THE RAW DATA BEHIND THE DECISIONS BEING MADE IS NOT. WE DESERVE VISIBILITY. ALL DATA BEING USED AND EASY ACCESS TO IT. ENGAGE WITH THE COMMUNITY IS ALSO SEVERELY LACKING SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED AT THE ARM STARTED THIS PROCESS. AND THE CONCERNS WERE OVERWHELMINGLY ABOUT QUALITY OF THE SCHOOL. WIDE TO APPROVE GUIDING PRINCIPLES THAT DID NOT EMBODY THE FEEDBACK ENTITIES YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO REPRESENT. YOU CAN STATE THAT YOU STRIVE FOR ALL SCHOOLS, THEN THINK LOT OF EDUCATION. BUT THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THEY DON'T. RATHER THAN THE SPECIFIC MOVE OF ANY AGE OF NINE GUIDING PRINCIPLE. NUMBER FIVE IS FOCUSED ON MAINTAINING NEIGHBORHOOD. IMAGE OF NINE HAS BEEN FEEDING C'MON MARINES SINCE IT WAS BUILT IN 1980. THAT IS OUR NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOL. AND YOU'RE RIPPING HER STUDENTS AWAY FROM THEIR NEIGHBORS JUST ACROSS A SINGLE ROAD. DO THEY RIDE THE BUS? BUT THEN THE WHOLE COMMUNITY EVENTS TOGETHER WITH. FIGHTING PRINCIPLE NUMBER SIX IS NOT TRANSPORTATION. NO MATTER WHAT POINT YOU SELECT AN IMAGE OF PROPOSED BOUNDARY TEENS, THE DISTANCE IS MILES FURTHER TO TRAVEL TO THE NEW SCHOOL. THERE'S ALSO AN AMOUNT OF A PG TRAFFIC. THESE STUDENTS WILL NOW HAVE TO SIT IN EQUALS DIRECTIONS. BY THE WAY, THE ONLY REASON THESE THINGS ARE BEING MOVED TO MAKE WAY FOR OTHER STUDENTS REPLACEMENT PATERSON KNOWS HAS PH. ABERDEEN HAS FACED WHY DISPLACED SUPER THE STUDENTS WHEN A SINGLE MOVE TAB? FAMOUS FACTS? YOU STAYED ON THE WEB PAGE THAT OUR TOP PRIORITY IS TO MAKE BOUNDARY ADJUSTMENTS, EQUITABLE AND FOCUS ON STUDENTS AND STUFF. HOW IS THIS PROPOSED ADJUSTMENT? THE IMAGES NINE AREA EQUITABLE YOU HAVE REACHED STUDENTS WILL BE TRAVELING. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW IN THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RAN WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. HI. MY NAME IS MARY ELDERS. I AM PROPOSING THE CHANGES TO THE C. S SEVEN AND HS FOUR, UM, LIVING THEATRE DAY OUT OF THE PATERSON MILLS.

UM. DISTRICT I FIND THESE CHANGES TO BE UNACCEPTABLE BORDERING ON NEGLIGENCE. THE PROPOSAL IS NOT BENEFICIAL FOR CHILDREN. THESE CHANGES WILL FRACTURE COMMUNITY AND HURT KIDS BY BREAKING THE CONCENTRATE. PREGNANCY IT'S A COMMUNITY THAT PROVIDES SECURITY SUPPORT DURING OUR DEVELOPMENTAL YEARS, WHICH THEY HAVE COME TO RELY ON WITH THE EXPERIENCES. OTHER SIBLINGS AND NEIGHBORS. DISTENDED CUTTER SMELLS. PROPOSALS PUT OUR HIGH SCHOOL KIDS AT RISK OF PERSONAL FARM CERTAINLY ARE CHILDREN INVOLVED IN EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES HAS A VERY SHORT SPACE DRIVE. MOSTLY ONE WEEK SINCE THE ROAD LESS THAN TWO MILES FROM OUR NEW EXTENSION AND PUT THE YOUNG DRIVERS ON A SEVEN PLUS MILE JOURNEY ON 5 23.

I WROTE INFAMOUS FOR HIGH SPEED IS FATAL ACCIDENTS DURING THE BUSIEST TIME. THIS IS A TRUE

[01:45:02]

SAFETY ISSUE THAT IS NOT CONSIDERED IN YOUR PROPOSAL. LASTLY YOU'RE PROPOSING TODAY ARE BASED ON DATA ANALYTICS PROBABILITIES, NOT REALITIES. WHAT LOOKS BUT ON FAVOR ON YOUR MAP. TODAY DOES NOT TRANSLATE INTO WHAT IS BEST FOR OUR STUDENTS TOMORROW. EVEN YOUR OWN DATA SHOWS. HOW DO SMALL HIGH SCHOOL WITH A STATIC AND WOMAN OF 80% TO THE NEXT FIVE YEARS? 25 YEAR OLD COMMUNITY HAS SUPPORTED PATTERSON MILL SINCE ITS INCEPTION IN 2000 AND SEVEN MY OWN CHILDREN HAVE A TENDENCY TO 1009. OUR NEIGHBORHOOD FAMILIES HAVE BEEN COUNTED OUT WITH VOLUNTEERING AND RAISING MONEY. MAKE THE SCHOOL WHAT IT IS. TODAY IT IS OUR COMMUNITY BEFORE WE HAVE BEEN HERE FOR DECADES. WE ARE NOT IN NEIGHBORHOOD. WE ARE AT PATTERSON MILL NEIGHBORHOOD. I EXPLORE THE BOARD TO RECONSIDER THESE CHANGES DO NOT FRACTURE OUR COMMUNITY DISPLAY. THANK YOU. OKAY DID END UP. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW IN THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. IT'S TESTING CHILD PHONE NUMBER ENDING IN 2171. IF YOU CAN PLEASE MUTE YOUR PLAYBACK, AND YOU CAN BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. IT'S FUNNY. NOBODY. GOOD EVENING. I LIVE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF THE OTHER DAY, AS WITH MANY RESIDENTS IN HARPER COUNTY, I CHOSE THIS NEIGHBORHOOD SPECIFICALLY FOR THE SCHOOLS IN THE LOCATION OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD TO THE SCHOOLS. ENDING THE SATURDAY NEIGHBORHOODS TO SOUTHAMPTON AND C MILTON WRIGHT COMPLETELY REMOVED OUR CHILDREN OUT OF OUR COMMUNITY SCHOOLS IN PLACES US IN SCHOOLS IN COMPLETELY DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES. PATTERSON MILL IS A PRACTICE TWO MILES FROM CEDAR DAY, ALLOWING OUR CHILDREN THE OPTION TO WALK OR BIKE HOME.

PATTERSON MILL'S THAT END THAT OUR COMMUNITY MAKING A SAFE PASSAGE FOR OUR CHILDREN. IT ALSO ALLOWS PARENTS TO BE INVOLVED IN THE SCHOOL COMMUNITY WITH ITS CLOSE PROXIMITY AS WE HAVE BEEN SINCE 2000 AND SEVEN WHEN PATTERSON WAS BUILT IN OUR COMMUNITY BEGAN ATTENDING. THE NEW PROPOSALS VOTE AGAINST SETTING SINCE BOTH SIDES MAINTAIN NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOLS THAT OPTIMIZE EXPECTED LEAD A HOME PRIORITIZE SAFE LOCKABLE PASSAGES TO AND FROM SCHOOL AND TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE BOUNDARIES OF EXISTING AND PLANNED COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT. IT'S ON THE DISTANCE OF THE NEW SCHOOLS. THE BEST TIME LIVE INCREASED SIGNIFICANTLY COMPARING THE TERMS OF OUR CURRENTLY REFERRED STUDENTS, THE STUDENTS AND THE NEXT CLOSEST NEIGHBORHOOD CURRENTLY GOING TO SOUTH HAMPTON AND SEMEN, RIGHT? THE TOTAL SCHOOL DAY FOR CHILDREN INCREASES SIGNIFICANTLY. THIS IS AN UNACCEPTABLE SOLUTION FOR STUDENTS ISN'T AND THEN DIRECT CONFLICT WITH GUIDING PRINCIPLE STICKS. CONSIDER TRANSPORTATION IMPACTS AND WORK TOWARDS LIMITING THE AMOUNT OF TIME REQUIRED ON A BUS 45 MINUTES OR LESS. THIS WILL ALSO IMPACT CHILDREN'S ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE IN COMMUNITY EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITY. IT'S IMPORTANT FOR COLLEGE. CAREER WRITING THIS FAMILY TIME AFTER SCHOOL. FURTHERMORE IT WILL MAKE IT INCONVENIENT FOR WORKING FAMILIES WHO RELY ON CAR PULLING IN ORDER FOR THEIR CHILDREN TO PARTICIPATE IN AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES AT SCHOOL, NO FAMILY THAT LIVES IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO SOUTH.

INCIDENCE IN THE LAUNDRY IS GOING TO WANT TO DROP OFF A CHILD LIVING 20 MINUTES AWAY.

THE PATERSON ARE SOON CAN GET THEMSELVES. SAFELY HOME INDEPENDENTLY OR HAVE A SHORT TWO MILES CARPOOL RIDES, GIVEN THE MASSIVE DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA AROUND SEEN ON RIGHT, THEY WILL NO DOUBT BE OVERCROWDED WITHIN A COUPLE OF YEARS. CAUSING. THIS HAPPENING HAVE REACHED THE TWO MINUTE MARK. THANK YOU. LADY AND YOU ARE NOW IN THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING, PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. MY NAME IS YOU WORRY ABOUT I LIVE IN KELLI GLYNN AND M. H S SIX. I'M THE PARENT OF THREE KIDS WHO WILL BE ATTENDING 97TH AND FOURTH GRADE NEXT YEAR. LIKE MOST OF MY NEIGHBORS, MY HUSBAND AND I PURCHASED THIS HELP EIGHT YEARS BACK AND PAY DOUBLE JUST TO THE ENVIRONMENT PROGRAMME DISTRICT WELL, BELLAIRE HIGH SCHOOL. LIKE MANY CONCERNED PARENTS, I HAVE A MULTITUDE OF QUESTIONS.

WE DO NOT SUPPORT THE REDISTRICTING OF SCHOOL. IT'S FELLER, MIDDLE AND PATERSON MIDDLE ARE THE ONLY TWO OVERCROWDED MIDDLE SCHOOL. WHY ARE OTHER SCHOOLS AND STUDENTS LEAVING REDISTRICTED AND IMPACTED ON A LARGER PART OF THE COMMUNITY, ESPECIALLY HIGH SCHOOLS THAT ARE STILL UNDER CAPACITY? WHY NOT SOLVE THIS PROBLEM? SHORT TERM BY HAVING LEARNING PARTS FOR THOSE TWO SCHOOLS AND BUILDING NEW SCHOOLS IN NEW YORK FUTURE? BASED ON THE CURRENT DATA AVAILABLE ON HTTPS WEBSITE, THE PROJECTION NUMBERS ARE OFF SELLER MIDDLE AND PATERSON MIDDLE ARE AT 104% CAPACITY, WITH ALL THE PROGRAMS INCLUDED IF STUDENTS ARE OPTING FOR VIRTUAL LEARNING, WHY HAVE THOSE NUMBERS NOT BEEN DISCLOSED, AND HE USED IN UPDATING THE PRODUCTION NUMBERS? I DO NOT SEE SCOPE.

STUDIES FOR THESE TWO SCHOOLS AND AL A PATIENT IN THE CAPITAL EXPENDITURE BUDGET FOR BUILDING

[01:50:01]

THESE SCHOOLS, WE WILL BE IN THE SAME EXACT PLACE FIVE YEARS FROM NOW, IF THIS IS NOT ADDRESSED AT THE MOMENT. MY DAUGHTER AS WELL AS OTHER CHILDREN HAVE WORKED VERY HARD SINCE ELEMENTARY TO BE PART OF. PART OF UNQUALIFIED FOR ENVIRONMENT TALK PROGRAM. WE WILL HAVE TO APPLY FOR BOUNDARY EXCEPTION AND I WILL HAVE TO PICK AND DROP ALL THREE A DIFFERENT TIMES AND DIFFERENT LOCATIONS. CHILDREN AND NEAR MENTAL HEALTH IS AT STAKE. MY DAUGHTER AND HER FRIENDS HAVE BEEN GOING DOOR TO DOORS. HAVE SIGNATURES ON PETITIONS FOR BEING AGAINST REDISTRICTING. WHY IS THIS 2000 AND 19 DATA BEING USED INSTEAD OF CURRENT CENSUS, AN ENROLLMENT AT THE PROJECTION IS ALREADY FOR 2000 AND SIX 2026. BUT DATA ON THE MARYLAND DOT GOV WEBSITES SUGGEST THAT THE PROJECTION TRENDING DOWN FROM. DOWN BY 5.9% BY 2029. YOU HAVE REACHED NUMBERS. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE TAKE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. JOE FERRARA. I WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS HOW HARPER TRYING PUBLIC SCHOOLS HAS ATTEMPTED TO DECEIVE PARENTS. THAT CRITICAL RACE THEORY HAS NOT BEEN IMPLEMENTED ITS CURRICULUM, HOUSE AND PROCEDURES UNDER THE GUISE CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE SPECIES.

IT'S NOT THE ACTIONS OF THIS BLURRED AND TEACHERS AS WELL. THE FINEST I HAVE ALREADY SEEN.

THERE IS NO DENYING CRITICAL RACE THEORY AS AN IS BEING PUT INTO EFFECT. DON'T THINK SO.

LET'S TAKE A SHORT TRIP BACK BELLY. WE HAVE DIFFERENT PENDANT BOTH BEEN STATING DURING THE HARVARD COUNTY DELEGATION MEETING THAT RACISM EXCEPT IN OUR SCHOOLS BECAUSE OF THE REFLECTION OF RACISM IN OUR COMMUNITY. WE HAVE A RACISM, IMPLICIT BIAS AND OTHER FORMS OF DISCRIMINATION SURVEY BUT BIG QUESTION STUDY IN A SPECIFIC NARRATIVE. WE HAVE SUPERVISOR OF EQUITY AND CULTURAL PROFICIENCY. ALL OF THIN, QUOTING OMAR LUCIO, AUTHOR OF MEDIOCRE THE DANGEROUS LEGACY OF WHITE MALE POWER. IN HARBOR COUNTY SCHOOLS STEP TO CHECK THEIR PRIVILEGE. WE HAVE ASSIGNMENTS GIVEN IN A HARPER COUNTY HOSPITAL, SO IN WHITE EQUALS RACISM AND MALE EQUALS INTEREST IN IT YOURSELF. WE HAVE ABOVE THE MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER TELLING HER STUDENTS. THAT IS A FACT THAT IMPLICIT BIAS IS THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH AMONG YOUNG BLACK MALES WITH NO DATA TO BACK UP THIS PROCESS. WE HAVE W. IRVING AUTHOR OBLIQUE ENOUGH PLACE, PROVIDING IT WORKSHOPS TRAINING TO HARVARD COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS, DIRECTORS, SUPERVISORS AND STAFF, ALONG WITH MANY OTHER INCIDENTS. THIS TWO SHORT MINUTES WILL NOT ALLOW. HOW IGNORANT YOU THINK YOU ARE THAT YOU THOUGHT YOU COULD JUST PUSH THIS THROUGH UNDER OUR NEWS IS WITHOUT A STUDENT SEE AS A PARENT AND THE TAXPAYERS THAT HAS BEEN THE COUNTY I STAND AGAINST THE PEOPLE CURRICULUM. AND I AM DEMANDING ALL CURRICULUM BEING USED CURRENTLY. AND FOR THE 21 26 CLEAR BECAUSE IT IMMEDIATELY IN A TRANSPARENT AREA ON THE HARBOR COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS, WEBSITES THE FULL ACCESS SO THAT PARENTS ARE INFORMED ON WHAT IS AND WILL BE TAUGHT IN THE CLASSROOM. FINALLY FORCING STUDENTS TO WEAR NOT HAVE REACHED TWO MINUTES. MARK. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW IN THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS ROBERT SPENT TO MY WIFE AND I ARE CONSTITUENTS OF COUNCILMANIC DISTRICT BEING SPECIFIC COMMUNITY GLENVILLE MANNER, WHICH IS AN NHS AND. I'M CALLING THIS EVENING TO CONCERN WITH VOICE MY CONCERNS ABOUT THIS REBALANCING ACTIVITY THAT'S GOING ON THE FIRST TIME I'D LIKE TO MAKE IS. NO, THE PROBLEM STATEMENT UNDERLYING THIS FULL REBALANCING ACTIVITY. IS THAT ENROLMENT FROM 2015 AND 19 RESULTED IN OVERCROWDING. IT'S ON SCHOOLS WHILE OTHERS ARE UNDERUTILIZED. HOWEVER HAVE A DEGREE IN MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOLS ARE PROTECTION. BE AN 84 88% CAPACITIES. UH IN 2026.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO HTTPS, REMOVE FIGURES. EVEN IF THIS WERE AN IMPEDIMENT TO PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT, WHICH IT ISN'T. BECAUSE OF 110% CAPACITY, LET ME JUST AND WOULD CONTRIBUTE ONLY 20 STUDENTS HEAVY DEGREES MIDDLE SCHOOL 15 STUDENTS FOR THE HEAVY GREASE HIGH SCHOOL.

MY QUESTION FOR THE BOARD IS WHY IS AND THEY JUST AND EVEN BEING CONSIDERED AND THIS REDISTRICTING WHEN IT'S GOING TO HAVE NO BENEFICIAL IMPACT WHATSOEVER ON THE STATED PROBLEM THAT UNDERPINS THIS ENTIRE ACTIVITY. HEARD DURING THE JUNE 2ND MEETING. THE CHURCHILL ELEMENTARY COULD GO FROM A THREE WAY TO A TWO WAY CEDAR SPLIT, WHICH SEEMED TO BE

[01:55:03]

DESIRABLE TO THE INDIVIDUAL SPEAKING. AND BOLUS MIGHT HAVE SOME ADMINISTRATIVE ADVANTAGE.

IT IS OF NO VALUE AT ALL FOR THOSE OF US IN THE CHEST. AND THE FACT AS YOU HEARD BE CONSIDERED TO BE A FARM. ON THE LAST POINT, I'D LIKE TO MAKE IT GENERALLY. I THINK THAT. PEOPLE WHO HAVE THOSE AND THE DECISIONS PEOPLE HAVE MADE. BUY HOUSES IN NEIGHBORHOODS SHOULD BE RESPECTED ABOVE. YOU KNOW, BUILDING NEW NEIGHBORHOODS AND PEOPLE THAT HAVE YET TO MAKE THOSE DECISIONS. WHAT HOUSES THEY WANT TO BUY. SO I GUESS WHAT I'M SAYING IS. RESPECT THOSE DECISIONS HAVE ALREADY BEEN MADE FOR WANT TO BE MADE IN THE FUTURE AND LET PEOPLE DO YOU HAVE REACHED THE TWO MINUTE MARK. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES. YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. GOOD EVENING. MY NAME IS RAMON DE GORDON AND WE LIVE IN AREA MHS FOUR ON CEDAR HILL COURT. OUR KIDS GO TO PATTERSON MILL, MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL. NOW THIS NEW PROPOSAL SOLELY CHANGING YOUR SCHOOLS RAISES SEVERAL CONCERNS FOR US, AND I'D LIKE TO TREVOR THEM QUICKLY. MY FIRST CONCERN IS THE PATERSON MILL MIDDLE SCHOOL IS CURRENTLY IDIOT STUDENTS OVER CAPACITY. IN PATERSON MILL HIGH SCHOOL IS 127 STUDENTS UNDER CAPACITY.

THERE'S A CHART ON YOUR WEBSITE THAT SHOWS 7% TRANSFER IN RATES. THE PATERSON MILL MIDDLE SCHOOL DUE TO BOUNDARY EXCEPTION, AND THIS HAS A TOTAL OF 50 STUDENTS. NOW YOU'RE SOME POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS THAT WE ASKED FOR YOU TO EXPLORE THE FIRST SOLUTION BEING NOT ALLOWING BOUNDARY EXCEPTIONS. SINCE THE MIDDLE SCHOOL IS OVER CAPACITY, IT MAKES NO SENSE TO PUSH THE STUDENTS THAT LIVE IN THE PATERSON MALARIA OUT IN ORDER TO ACCOMMODATE, UH AND MAKE ROOM WORK. THE BOUNDARY EXCEPTION STUDENTS. SECOND SOLUTION WOULD BE TO REASSIGN THE HIGH SCHOOL CLASSROOMS THROUGH MIDDLE SCHOOL AND THE THIRD SOLUTION WOULD BE TO NOT TO REDISTRICT THE HIGH SCHOOL SINCE IT'S. NOT OVER CAPACITY OF FOUR SOLUTION WOULD BE TO ALLOW THE MIDDLE SCHOOLERS TO RETURN TO PATERSON MIDDLE HIGH SCHOOL. BECAUSE OUR THE HIGH SCHOOLS ONLY 2.8 MILES FROM THEIR HOME, WHILE C MILTON WRIGHT IS 6000 WAY, WHICH IS TWICE THE DISTANCE. AN ARTICLE IN THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER FROM 2006 AND PATERSON. NO WAS THEIR COMPLETION MENTIONED THAT EVENTUALLY, A SEPARATE MIDDLE SCHOOL WOULD BE CONSTRUCTED IN PATERSON MILL. WE STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT. THE CURRENT PROPOSALS, ONLY A BAND AID WITH ALL THE NEW CONSTRUCTION GOING ON IN HARFORD COUNTY WILL BE FACING THE SAME EXACT PROBLEM OF OVERCROWDING ONCE AGAIN IN LESS THAN TWO YEARS NOW. SECOND CONCERN. THAT THE PROPOSED CHANGE IS GOING TO MAKE HOMESTEAD WAKEFIELD ELEMENTARY, THE ONLY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN THE COUNTY THAT BECOMES A TRIPLE PETER SCHOOL, WITH ONE IN THREE STUDENTS GO INTO PATTERSON MILL AND ONE IN FIVE GOING TO SOUTHAMPTON OR SEEM RIGHT MINUTE, MARK. THANK YOU.

GOOD EVENING. YOU ARE NOW IN THE BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. YOUR TIME WILL CONCLUDE IN TWO MINUTES.

YOU WILL HEAR A BELL RING WHEN YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS REMAINING. PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND YOU MAY BEGIN YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT NOW. GOOD EVENING. I'M STILL TO OLIVER AND I RESIDE IN THE WILLOW CHASE COMMUNITY. I WANT TO MAKE TWO QUICK POINTS BUT EXTREMELY IMPORTANT POINT.

UM TO URGE YOU TO RECONSIDER AT LEAST PART OF YOUR NHS FOR REDISTRICTING AREA LEADING WILLOW CHASE IN THE PATERSON MILL DISTRICT. I'VE BEEN A REGISTERED PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER FOR MORE THAN 25 YEARS. I'VE WORKED EXTENSIVELY WITH THE MARYLAND STATE HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION. POINT NUMBER ONE USING THE LATEST EDITION. AGAINST THE YANKEES. USING THE LATEST EDITION OF THE GEOMETRIC DESIGN OF HIGHWAYS TREATMENT. IT'S PUBLISHED BY ASH TO THE LEFT TURN MOVEMENT FOR WHEEL ROAD ON 5 43 DOES NOT MEET HEADLIGHTS LIKE DISTANCE REQUIREMENTS FOR A 30 MILE AN HOUR POST SPEED. HER EXHIBIT 99 6 TIME GAP FOR LEFT TURN MOVEMENTS ON MAJOR HIGHWAYS. DISTANCE 325 FT IS REQUIRED, AND THERE'S BARELY OVER 200 FT.

AVAILABLE THERE'S A HIGH POINT ON WHEEL ROAD THAT PRESENTS. ADEQUATE SIGHT DISTANCE FROM BEING ACHIEVED. UH, SECOND POINT. THE SECOND POINT. TRY TO CREATE A WIN WIN SITUATION. UH, WITH. OTHER LOOKING AT OTHER COMMUNITIES CLOSER TO THE CLOSER TO THE. SOUTHAMPTON AND C. MILTON WRIGHT. THREE COMMUNITIES THAT STICK OUT WOULD BE THE CHAMBER CIRCLE

[02:00:01]

COMMUNITY TO SCOTT'S FANCY COMMUNITY AND THE UPPER CRUST COMMUNITY. ALL THREE OF THOSE COMMUNITIES ARE VERY CLOSE TO MACPHAIL ROAD AND BRIERHILL ROAD AND WOULD RESULT IN DECREASED TRAVEL TIMES. UM, COMPARED TO WHAT THEY ARE CURRENTLY SEEING. LEAVE WILLOW CHASE IN THE PATERSON MILL SCHOOL DISTRICT, PLEASE. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING.

BOARD OF EDUCATION. I WANTED TO EXPRESS MY DEEPEST GRATITUDE TO THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON BEHALF OF THE F FOUR FOR KEEPING OUR SMALL NEIGHBORHOOD IN THE PATERSON MALE MIDDLE SIZE FEEDER PATTERN. BY DOING SO THEY HAVE DEMONSTRATED THAT THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE AND OTHER RELATED INDIVIDUALS HAVE HEARD OUR PLEA. BUT WE ARE STILL HOPING THAT WE CAN REMAIN AT RING FACTORY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. WE ARE FULLY GRATEFUL TO REMAIN IN OUR CURRENT MIDDLE HIGH FEEDER PATTERN. IT IS MY HOPE AND THE HOPE OF MY FELLOW COMMUNITY MEMBERS THAT THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE NOT ALTER OUR MIDDLE HIGH FEEDER PATTERN NOW THAT THE SECONDARY FORUM HAS OCCURRED. IT IS EVIDENT THAT SOME COMMUNITIES ARE NOT WILLING TO COMPROMISE AND BELIEVE THEY ARE ABOVE THE DISTRICT THAT THERE EVERY REQUEST OR STOUT, SAL. I SAY DEMAND BE GRANTED. IT IS UNWISE AND UNFAIR TO MAKE LESS PRIVILEGED NEIGHBORHOODS MAKE ALL THE MOVEMENTS AT THE EXPENSE OF OTHER PRIVILEGED NEIGHBORHOOD. WHILE IT MAY BE EARLY IN THE PROCESS AFTER EXAMINING THE SECONDARY MAP FOR THE CENTRAL SOUTH REGION, THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE MADE A WONDERFUL DECISION IN THE BOUNDARY OF PATERSON. BILL MIDDLE. HOW.

I HAVE SEEN EVERYONE. I HAVE GOOD NEWS TO REPORT AS WELL. OUR COUNTY POSITIVITY RATE IS 1.15.

TODAY WE CONTRAST THAT BACK TO JUST APRIL WHEN WE WERE AT 15. OUR CASE RATE 1.9 400,000. I'M SURE MOST OF YOU REMEMBER BACK IN NOVEMBER, THOSE NUMBERS WERE UP TO ALMOST 50. SO WE ARE SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THOSE, UM, OUR DASHBOARD ALSO LOOKS MUCH IMPROVED 189 CHILDREN IN ISOLATION IN OUR STUDENT BODY 180 QUARANTINED. 22 STAFF IN ISOLATION 21 ON STEP WORRY.

ANOTHER BIG PROJECT FOR HEALTH SERVICES IS WORKING WITH OUR PARTNERS TO PROVIDE VACCINATIONS FOR OUR STUDENTS, UM, FOR CHESAPEAKE HAS BEEN WORKING WITH OUR 16 PLUS STUDENTS. THEY'RE GIVING SECOND DOSES THIS WEEK. 346 CHILDREN ARE INVOLVED IN THAT PROJECT AS SOON AS THE EASY WAY WAS AMENDED FROM VISOR. WE WORKED WITH THE HARPER COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT FOR OUR 12, PLUS STUDENTS. EARLIER WE DID 1000 92 OF THOSE STUDENTS WERE VACCINATED AND THEY'LL GET THEIR SECOND DOSE ON JUNE THE SECOND. I'M DOING THIS. THAT'S 10. I DID WANT TO MENTION TONIGHT THAT ARE COVID VACCINATION RATE IN THE COUNTY IS 53% FOR OUR CITIZENS FOR ONE VACCINATION AND JUST 45% OF OUR COUNTY RESIDENTS ARE FULLY VACCINATED. I AM ENCOURAGING AS DR PHILLIPS DID AS WELL PEOPLE TO CONSIDER VACCINATION, ALTHOUGH OUR COUNTY'S MASBACK SITE IS NO LONGER TAKING FIRST DOSE APPOINTMENTS, AND THEY'LL BE CLOSING ON JUNE 19TH VACCINE IS WIDELY AVAILABLE. COULD STILL GO TO THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT BUT ALSO LOCAL PHARMACIES AND IN MANY CASES THEIR OWN HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS, SO I DO URGE EVERYONE TO BE VACCINATED WILL DEFINITELY MAKE OUR FALL. MORRISON. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU, PAUL. UM, YOUR CONTINUED PARTICIPATION AND INTEREST IN, UM COVID AND HOW WE ARE MITIGATING THE SPREAD OF THIS VIRUS IN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. SO THIS IS KATIE RICH WAY I AM THE RISK MANAGER AND I RECEIVE A LOT OF THE QUESTIONS BOTH FROM THE PUBLIC FROM EMPLOYEES FROM PARENTS AND FROM STAFF AT CENTRAL OFFICE. ABOUT WHAT DO WE ANTICIPATE WILL HAPPEN WITH OUR COVID MITIGATION EFFORT. AS IT STANDS RIGHT NOW, ON JUNE 7TH, UM, THE C C M S, D E AND M D H HAVE SAID THAT ALL MITIGATING MEASURES ARE STAYING IN PLACE THROUGH THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. WITH THAT BEING SAID. WE DO ANTICIPATE CHANGES COMING AFTER THE SCHOOL YEAR IS CLOSED, AND WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING FROM THE CDC WITH WHAT THEIR SCHOOL GUIDANCE WILL BE. WE'RE LOOKING HOPEFULLY AROUND JULY 1 TO

[02:15:03]

PROVIDE A NEW OPERATIONAL STATUS. IF YOU'RE FAMILIAR WITH OUR IT'S KIND OF A RED YELLOW GREEN CHART THAT SAYS WHAT WE ARE DOING IN OUR SCHOOL BUILDINGS. WE WILL BE UPDATING THAT AND CONTINUING THAT PROCESS AS THIS PANDEMIC CONTINUES, AND HOPEFULLY CONTINUES TO GO, UM, NEAR NOTHING AS WE CONTINUE ON TO THE SUMMER MONTHS. SO WE DO ANTICIPATE THOSE CHANGES. THERE ARE NO CHANGES IN THIS CURRENT MOMENT. UM AND I'M GONNA JUST TAKE THIS LAST OPPORTUNITY TO THANK THE CORONAVIRUS TASK FORCE FOR ALL OF THE WORK THAT THEY HAVE DONE SINCE MARCH OF LAST YEAR. UM IT'S BEEN AN AMAZING GROUP OF PEOPLE AND I'VE REALLY APPRECIATED WORKING WITH ALL OF THEM. I'D ALSO LIKE TO THANK MARY MATSUDA, WHO IS MY PARTNER AND ALL OF THIS WORK. AND UM, THANK ALL THE ADMINISTRATORS AND TEACHERS BECAUSE ALL OF THE COVID MITIGATING MEASURES ALL OF THOSE OPERATIONAL STATUSES HAVE BEEN VERY DIFFICULT FOR EVERYONE TO MANAGE. I RECOGNIZE THAT AND I APPRECIATE EVERYONE'S HARD WORK AND GETTING US TO WHERE WE ARE TODAY. THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU. BOTH UM YEAH, I THINK I KNOW ONE OF THE QUESTIONS WE'VE BEEN RECEIVING FREQUENTLY IS YOU KNOW WHAT WILL OUR. MASK STATUS AND SOME OF THE STATUS OF SOME OF THE OTHER MITIGATING FACTORS BE IN THE FALL. AND UM, JUST AGAIN. THAT IS SOMETHING I THINK YOU JUST HEARD. KATIE SAY THAT N D H. D C. THEY HAVE NOT MADE MAJOR CHANGES TO THAT, AND THERE IS STILL AN EXPECTATION OF THE MASKS IN SCHOOL AND WE WILL BE CONTINUING THOSE THROUGH THE END OF THE YEAR. AND UM, AS SOON AS THAT CHANGES AT THE STATE LEVEL, WE WILL REVISIT IT SO THAT WE CAN GET MESSAGES OUT. PEOPLE ARE SOME POSSIBLE BOARD ANY QUESTIONS FROM YOU WITH REGARD TO THE CURRENT STATUS AND OTHER CONTINUITY OF LEARNING.

UPDATES. REMEMBER PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU HAVE ANY. QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS FOR DR BOTH UNDERSTAND. MM. SO BACK BACK TO BOTH. I DON'T SEE ANY. I JUST HAVE QUESTION AND A COMMENT. AND THE FIRST IS. TO MY FIRST BEFORE I ASK THE QUESTION. I WANT TO AND THINK MIKE AND COLIN WELL, UM. THEIR PROFESSIONALISM EXHIBITED DURING THE ENTIRE, UM, GRADUATION. A PROCESS THOSE GUYS, I TIP MY HAT TO YOU GUYS. YOU HAVE YOU, DON'T YOU AND YOUR STAFF DID AN EXCELLENT JOB. MIKE THIS QUESTION IS FOR YOU. AS RELATED TO SWAN CREEK.

HOW DO THE ENROLLMENT NUMBERS THAT YOU SAY TO HIM THAT, UH. MATCH UP WITH WHAT? YOUR EXPECTATIONS WHAT EXPECTATIONS WERE, UH, BUT THE ENROLLMENT IN THAT PROGRAM. THAT'S A REALLY GREAT QUESTION. UM, WE THOUGHT WHEN IT WAS SAID AND DONE, WE WOULD HAVE ABOUT 250 AT EACH LEVEL. UM. YOU KNOW, FOR A TOTAL OF LIKE 750 STUDENTS, BUT WE STILL FEEL LIKE THAT'S PROBABLY ABOUT THE NUMBER. WE'RE GOING TO GET. UM. YOU KNOW SO ALL ALONG? WE'VE KIND OF BEEN GUESSTIMATING FOR STAFFING. AND AS YOU HEARD, MR VILLARREAL SAY, UM, YOU KNOW, SHE'S THINKING OF TWO PER GRADE LEVEL FOR MIDDLE AND HIGH. IT'S JUST A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED BECAUSE WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO. HIS MATCH STAFF TO THE COURSES THAT THE KIDS NEED, UM, COMING IN THE DOOR. AND YOU KNOW FOR LIKE A MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH POSITION, FOR EXAMPLE. WE MAY NEED TO OFFER, YOU KNOW, 10 DIFFERENT, UM, TYPES OF MATH COURSES. TO MEET THE NEEDS. SO, UM. WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT OUR CLASS SIZES WERE EXCITED ABOUT THE ENROLLMENT. SO IT'S PRETTY RIGHT ON TO WHERE WE FEEL LIKE WE'RE GONNA END UP THANK YOU. PATRICE. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

PRESIDENT ROBINSON. I HAD TWO POINTS. I WANTED TO DIRECT TO DR BOLSON. UM THE FIRST POINT YOU JUST SAID IT AND I'M JUST GOING TO ASK YOU TO REPEAT IT AGAIN BECAUSE. IT SEEMS LIKE MANY OF THE PUBLIC COMMENTS THAT WE SEE AN EMAIL OR SOME OF THE COMMENTS WE HEARD THIS EVENING HAS TO DO WITH THE MASK MANDATE AND THAT HCPS SEEMS TO BE RANDOMLY. UM. WISHING TO HAVE MASKS ON STUDENTS SOLD YOU, UH, SHE ANSWERED THE FIRST PART OF MY QUESTION. WOULD YOU REITERATE WHERE THAT DIRECTOR WAS COMING FROM? YES OF COURSE WHEN? WHEN THE GOVERNOR LIFTED THE MASK, MANDATE AND OTHER PLACES. WE OF COURSE, TOOK A CLOSE. LOOK AT THE GUIDANCE

[02:20:01]

COMING FROM N D. H. EVEN IN THE EXECUTIVE ORDER TO SEE IF THAT APPLIED TO SCHOOLS. AND SO A, IE IS STILL AN EXPECTATION IN SCHOOLS, AND THAT WAS A LOGICAL THING BECAUSE YOU KNOW, AND.

MOST ADULTS HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE VACCINATED. BUT MANY OF OUR YOUTH HAVE NOT HAD THAT OPPORTUNITY JUST BECAUSE WE GET JUST THAT DOWN TO THE 12 AND OVER RECENT. UM MISS RIDGEWAY, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PROVIDE ANY MORE CLARITY AROUND THIS SPORT SPECIFIC TO RUN A LANGUAGE, BUT AT THIS POINT THERE IS THAT IS THE MASK MANDATE HAS NOT BEEN LIFTED FOUR SCHOOLS, BUT MAYBE YOU CAN STATE THAT MORE CLEARLY, MR JOY. YES THANK YOU, BECAUSE THAT IS A QUESTION THAT WE ANSWER PROBABLY DAILY. AND SO I'M HAPPY TO REITERATE AND HELP PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN THAT ORDER WAS OR WHEN THE GOVERNOR MADE THAT ANNOUNCEMENT, THEY MADE SPECIFIC EXCEPTIONS. AND ONE OF THOSE SPECIFIC EXCEPTIONS IS, UM, SCHOOLS AND THAT THEN MEANS THAT WE HAVE TO SAY, WELL, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR SCHOOLS AND WE LOOK TO MULTIPLE SOURCES. WE WILL LOOK TO THE C D. C. WE LOOKED AT M S TO EAT AND WE LOOKED AT MD EIGHT. AND WE ALSO LOOK TO OUR LOCAL HARPER COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT. AND ALL ARE IN AGREEMENT RIGHT NOW. THAT'S THROUGH THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR MASK OR STILL RISK REQUIRED IN SCHOOLS. NOW, IF YOU GO TO THE CBC WEBSITE, THERE IS AN ANNOUNCEMENT AT THE TOP THAT SAYS, WHEN YOU GO TO THE SCHOOL SECTION THAT SAYS ALL COVID MITIGATING MEASURES ARE STILL IN PLACE FOR SCHOOLS RIGHT NOW, INCLUDING MASS, UM, THROUGH THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. WE EXPECT THAT NEW GUIDANCE WILL COME OUT. AND AS SOON AS THE CDC RELEASES THEIR NEW GUIDANCE THAN MSC, E AND M TH AND HARPER COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT WILL ALL FOLLOW SUIT AND WE WILL BE ABLE TO ARTICULATE WHAT THE BALL LOOKS LIKE. SO WE ARE ON THE EDGE OF HER SEAT WAITING FOR THAT TO COME, JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, BUT WE ARE FERVENTLY STAYING THE COURSE TO THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR TO FOLLOW ALL THE GUIDANCE THAT WE'VE BEEN GIVEN.

THANK YOU. UM, SO I HAVE A SECOND QUESTION. I WANTED TO ASK. DR BOLSON, AND IT HAS TO DO WITH THE SWAN QUIT SCHOOL FALLING UP WITH PRESIDENT ROBINSON'S INITIAL COMMENTS.

THERE SEEMS TO BE A PERCEPTION THAT. UM THIS ONE CREEK SCHOOL IN THE VIRTUAL LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES IN CREATED AS A RESULT OF THE PANDEMIC, AND I WOULD LIKE YOU PLEASE GIVE CLARIFICATION AS TO IS ONE OF THE SPEAKERS THIS EVENING EVEN MENTIONED THAT WE ARE GOING TO BE DELUDING OUR RESOURCES BY, UH, SUPPORTING THIS ONE QUICK SCHOOL. WOULD YOU PLEASE REITERATE TO THE PUBLIC ON HOW THAT CAME ABOUT? FROM M S D E, PLEASE. ABSOLUTELY SO THERE'S KIND OF. IS A LOT THAT CONTRIBUTES TO THIS. WE BEGAN THE RESEARCH. I SAY WE BEGAN THE SAME TEAM YOU'VE HEARD ABOUT THAT INCLUDES THAT THE HEAD OF THE OP ED SCHOOL, MR DELIVER MISS PENSIERO, WHO'S AHEAD OF VIRTUAL OR DIGITAL LEARNING. THEN, OF COURSE, OUR ED SERVICES TEAM AND MR O'BRIEN, MR. CAR, MANY OTHERS. HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THE SCHOOL, IN FACT, THE RESEARCH AND TO PROVIDING ALTERNATIVE OPTIONS FOR STUDENTS TO INCLUDE VIRTUAL OPTIONS LIKE THIS BEGAN IN THE PREVIOUS YEAR. WE'VE BEEN WORKING ON THAT FOR DOING SOME RESEARCH TO THAT FOR QUITE SOME TIME. AND IN FACT, THE APPLICATION WE COMPLETED WE WERE AMONG THE FIRST IN THE STATE TO GET THROUGH THIS, BUT THAT WAS BECAUSE WE HAD STARTED.

WE ACTUALLY NEARLY COMPLETED THE APPLICATION PRIOR TO COVID. SO THE RESEARCH AND THE FOCUS ON THIS BEGAN BEFORE COVID, HOWEVER, UM THERE'S NO QUESTION OF FROM THE LESSONS LEARNED IN COVID THAT IT'S INFLUENCED OUR DECISION TO MOVE FORWARD. I THINK ITS INFLUENCE THE SCALE OF THE SCHOOL, ITS INFLUENCE THE OPTIONS THAT WE HAVE TO OFFER THEIR. BECAUSE WE'VE LEARNED SO MUCH ABOUT VIRTUAL INSTRUCTION, AND WE'VE ALSO HEARD FROM A LIMITED NUMBER OF FAMILIES AND STUDENTS THAT THEY'VE ACTUALLY EXCELLED IN THE VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT AND AGAIN. WE DON'T WANT TO OVERSTATE THAT AMOUNT. BUT WE DO BELIEVE THERE'S SOME STUDENTS FOR WHOM THIS HAS BEEN A VERY BENEFICIAL APPROACH AND. AND OUR HOPE IS THAT THE STUDENTS WERE SERVING THERE WILL BE WATCHING VERY CLOSELY AND THAT THE STUDENTS WERE SERVING THEY ARE HURRY TO REALLY BENEFIT FROM THIS MODEL AND AGAIN WITH EVERYTHING THAT'S BEEN LEARNED THROUGH THIS SO. THERE'S NO QUESTION THAT LESSONS HAVE BEEN TAKEN FROM COVID ABOUT THE GENESIS OF THIS BEGAN BEFORE THIS PANDEMIC, BUT MR O'BRIEN'S ANYTHING YOU'D LIKE TO ADD TO THAT. I THINK THAT'S RIGHT ON. WE VISITED BALTIMORE COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS WHO HAVE DONE THIS FOR A FEW YEARS, AND WE WERE REALLY IMPRESSED WITH HOW. VIRTUAL LEARNING HELPED A LOT OF KIDS FROM HOME AND HOSPITAL STUDENTS ALTERNATIVES TO SUSPENSION.

STUDENTS, UM. ON THE VERGE OF DROPPING OUT. I'M HAVING OPTIONS TO KEEP KIDS IN THE GAME, AND THAT'S WHAT REALLY ATTRACTED US WAS JUST HAVING OPTIONS FOR ALL KINDS OF

[02:25:01]

DIFFERENT FAMILIES AND FAMILY SITUATIONS. IT WAS EXCITING THAT WE WERE REALLY AHEAD OF THE GAME. UM YOU KNOW AND THANK, LIKE DR BOLSON SAID BECKY PIN ZERO AND ROBBED 11 WHO HAS BEEN. YOU KNOW, LEADING LEADING THE WAY? UM FULL TIME. IT'S REALLY BEEN AMAZING GENESIS OF THE PROGRAM. THANK YOU FOR IT'S RICHARD. DR HAROLD. YES. THANK YOU. THANK YOU FOR THE UPDATE, UM. QUESTION. ANOTHER QUESTION ABOUT BLONDE STREAK AND I'M SO GRATEFUL FOR THE WORK AND THE FRUITION OF. SWAN CREEK AND THE VIRTUAL SCHOOL OPTION. UM, HAD SOME. WE RECEIVED SOME QUESTIONS FROM THE PUBLIC RECENTLY. OBVIOUSLY. FOR FAMILIES, WHO, UM, YOU KNOW HAD ENROLLED IN THE VIRTUAL SCHOOL. UM. WONDERING IF THEY WANTED TO CHANGE YOUR MIND EARNINGS AND RE ENROLL INTO PHYSICAL SCHOOL. UH WHAT WOULD THAT WHAT? WHAT? WHAT DO THEY NEED TO CONSIDER? AND ARE THEY ARE PARENTS FAMILY STILL ABLE TO DO THAT? OVER THE SUMMER MONTHS. ANY RECOMMENDATIONS THERE? MR O'BRIEN, ONLY YOU'RE GONNA GO INTO SPECIFICS OF THAT BECAUSE I THINK YOU PROBABLY CAN PROVIDE MORE. DO YOU STILL ANSWER TO ME ON THAT ONE? YES, ABSOLUTELY. SO WE DO ASK FAMILIES, UM, FOR YOU KNOW, A HALF A YEAR COMMITMENT. AND THAT WILL BE A LOT EASIER. YOU KNOW IF THEY WANT TO CHANGE THEIR MIND PRIOR TO THE START OF SCHOOL. WE'VE WE'VE TRIED TO STAFF THE SCHOOL, YOU KNOW, BASED ON THE NEED, YOU KNOW, AT THE SAME TIME WE UNDERSTAND THAT PEOPLE YOU KNOW, CAN CHANGE THEIR MINDS. SO YOU KNOW WHAT? HONESTLY WHAT WE RECOMMEND IS JUST FAMILIES REACH OUT TO MR DI LEVA. GET REAL SPECIFICS. YOU KNOW WHAT IS THEIR SCHEDULE GONNA LOOK LIKE? WE HAVE SOME AMAZING TEACHERS. UM WHO FROM MULTIPLE STATES WHO APPLY TO THE SCHOOL BECAUSE THERE'S SO MANY LIMITED.

OPTIONS AND WE WERE ONE OF THE FIRST ONES HIRING FOR IT. WE HAVE SOME AMAZING TEACHERS. UM SO I JUST SAY. YOU KNOW WE'RE GOING TO DO OUR BEST TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE FAMILIES. WE WANT THE COMMITMENTS, BUT AT THE SAME TIME WE UNDERSTAND THERE'S ALWAYS MITIGATING CIRCUMSTANCES. SO FOR ANY FAMILY KIND OF ON THE FENCE, WE'RE THINKING ABOUT IT. NO SPEAKING DIRECTLY WITH MR DE LEVA. I THINK WE'LL PUT A LOT OF. YOU KNOW FEARS TO REST BECAUSE I THINK HE'LL BE ABLE TO REALLY SHOW. UM FAMILIES. YOU KNOW WHAT THEY'LL EXPERIENCE WHAT IT'LL FEEL LIKE WHAT IT WILL LOOK LIKE. UM. CAUSE I THINK WHAT WE WILL HAVE KNOWN A LOT MORE. WE HAVE A LOT OF LESSONS LEARNED AT THIS POINT. THANK YOU. ANYONE ELSE? DR BOASTING THEY DON'T SEE ANY KIND OF HAND RACE. THANK YOU FOR THAT ONE TO REMOVE TO THE NEXT. ARE YOU? ARE YOU DONE WITH YOUR YOU COMPLETED YOUR REPORT? YES, SIR. OKAY. SURE.

SO WE MOVED. MHM. THE NEXT. THE NEXT ITEM ON THE AGENDA IS AN UPDATE. EQUITY I WILL CALL IN

[F. Equity Update, Dr. Paula Stanton, Manager of Equity and Cultural Proficiency]

DR POLISH THAT. GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE. EXCUSE ME. PRESIDENT ROBINSON, VICE PRESIDENT GAUTIER, MEMBERS OF THE BOY DOCTOR BOTH THEN I'LL SHARE A FEW UPDATES ON OUR EQUITY WORK IN THE DISTRICT. WE'LL START WITH OUR EQUITY POLICY PROCEDURES. SO RIGHT NOW WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF HAVING SOME SMALL GROUP MEETINGS TO WORK ON THE LANGUAGE. AN ALIGNMENT OF OUR IMPLEMENTING PROCEDURES TO OUR POLICY. AND WE'RE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THE DIRECTION THAT'S GOING IN. WE ALSO PLAN TO SHARE A POLICY WITH SOME TEACHER LEADERS ON JUNE 17TH.

IN A PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT BECAUSE WE REALIZE IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE ALL KNOW OUR ROLE IN IMPLEMENTING THE POLICY. THAT WORK IS CONTINUING. JUST TO PUT A LITTLE BIT OF THIS IN CONTEXT. UM, THE COLMAR ON EDUCATIONAL EQUITY, UM, MANDATES THAT WE PROVIDE TAILORED AND DIFFERENTIATED PROFESSIONAL LEARNING TO BUILD CAPACITY.

CULTURAL RESPONSIVENESS TO ADDRESS AREAS OF INEQUITY IDENTIFIED BY THE SCHOOL SYSTEM THAT IS LANGUAGE PULLED DIRECTLY FROM THE COMA AND EDUCATIONAL EQUITY. AND THEN THE STATE ALSO DEVELOPED A GUIDEBOOK WHERE THEY FURTHER DEFINED CULTURAL RESPONSIVENESS.

AND THE REASON I WANNA SHARE THIS A LITTLE BIT IS BECAUSE WE KEEP GETTING QUESTIONS ABOUT CRITICAL RACE THEORY. AND THEN THEY ARE LUMPING IN CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE TEACHING. AND WHILE WE KNOW THAT IT'S NOT THE SAME, I THINK THERE'S SOME CONFUSION SO I WANT TO TRY TO CLARIFY

[02:30:02]

SOME OF THAT CONFUSION TONIGHT. SO THE STATE DEFINES CULTURAL RESPONSIVENESS AS PEDAGOGY THAT RECOGNIZES THE IMPORTANCE OF INCLUDING CULTURE IN ALL ASPECTS OF LEARNING. EQUITABLE AND INCLUSIVE PRACTICES THAT PROMOTE HIGH EXPECTATIONS. SO IN ESSENCE, OUR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT THIS YEAR OR THIS UPCOMING SCHOOL YEAR, AS IT HAS BEEN IN THE PAST WILL BE DESIGNED TO INCREASE CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE PRACTICES IN OUR SCHOOLS. WE'LL CONTINUE TO USE OUR DATA LIKE OUR RACISM SURVEY DATA. IN ADDITION TO OTHER DATA THAT WE COLLECT CLIMATE SURVEY DATA AND OTHER ACCOUNTABILITY MEASURES, AND THOSE REALLY INFORM OUR ACTIONS AROUND THIS WORK. WE'RE ALSO FOCUSING ON THOSE FOUR KEY AREAS, ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT AND GROWTH AND THAT IS BUILDING A MORE EQUITABLE ACADEMIC PROGRAM. SO WHAT THAT MEANS IS WE'RE GOING TO BE CONTINUING TO LOOK AT OUR CURRICULUM AND WE ARE DOING THAT WITH AN EQUITY LENS. WE WANT TO KNOW WHOSE VOICE IS HEARD IN THE CURRICULUM, WHOSE VOICE IS MISSING. HOW DO WE PORTRAY PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT CULTURES AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, HOW DO WE HELP TO BUILD OUR STUDENTS CULTURAL IDENTITY BECAUSE THAT'S REALLY KEY. THE SECOND AREA LEADERSHIP IN HUMAN CAPITAL THAT'S ABOUT RECRUITING AND RETAINING EFFECTIVE AND DIVERSE EDUCATORS AND STAFF. SO OUR H R OFFICE UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF BEN RICHARDSON, HAS BEEN WORKING DILIGENTLY TO RECRUIT A DIVERSE FACULTY AND STAFF AND THEY'VE BEEN ENGAGING A RECRUITMENT FAIRS AND OTHER INNOVATIVE HIRING STRATEGIES AS WELL. IN ADDITION, SHARON FOSTER MORE THE DIVERSITY OF RETENTION AND RECRUITMENT SPECIALIST HAS HOSTED SEVERAL VIRTUAL EVENTS. EVENING EVENTS TO PROVIDE TIPS AND SUPPORT FOR OUR TEACHERS, OUR NEW TEACHERS, UM AND THEY RECENTLY HAD A PANEL OF EDUCATORS THAT DISCUSS SOME OF THE MOST CHALLENGING ASPECTS OF BEING AN EDUCATOR.

HOW THEY'VE OVERCOME THOSE ASPECTS. THEY SHARE SOME LESSONS LEARNED LESSONS LEARNED, AND THEY REALLY STARTED TO BUILD A SUPPORT NETWORK, WHICH IS SO IMPORTANT TO TEACHERS.

THE AREA OF SCHOOL CULTURE AND CLIMATE THAT IS BUILDING A CLIMATE THAT SUPPORTS ALL STUDENTS SUCCESS. SO WE ARE FOCUSING ON A COUPLE OF PROJECTS IN THAT AREA. UM, ARE BULLYING CYBER BULLYING, HARASSMENT AND INTIMIDATE IMITATION POLICY IS ONE THAT WE THINK OUR STUDENTS NEED MORE INFORMATION ABOUT SO. WE'RE DOING TWO THINGS. WE'RE WORKING WITH THE OFFICE OF STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES WITH A SMALL COMMITTEE WE'RE WORKING ON.

SOME RECOMMENDED REVISIONS TO OUR BULLYING CYBER BULLYING, HARASSMENT AND INTIMIDATION PROCEDURES. AND THE PURPOSE OF THAT WILL BE TO ENSURE MORE TRANSPARENCY FOR THE PUBLIC AND FOR US AND TO PROVIDE SOME ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE ON HOW WE ADDRESS VIOLATIONS OF OUR POLICY WHEN THEY OCCUR. EVEN BEFORE THAT, WE REALLY WANT TO EDUCATE OUR STUDENTS. SO THIS SUMMER UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF TEACHERS, SPECIALISTS, MEREDITH HELP, WHO WORKS IN THE OFFICE OF EQUITY AND CULTURAL PROFICIENCY, SHE'LL BE WORKING WITH A GROUP OF STUDENTS TO DEVELOP SOME STUDENT CREATED MODULES. THAT WILL EXPLAIN OUR BULLYING AND HARASSMENT POLICY.

UM YES, STUDENTS SOME INFORMATION THAT WILL SUPPORT THEM AND PREVENTING BULLYING AND HARASSMENT SO THAT THEY RECOGNIZE IT WHEN THEY SEE IT. THEY KNOW HOW TO REPORT IT. AND THAT THEY REALLY HELP STUDENTS SORT OF ESTABLISHED THE SENSE OF BELONGING BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT EVERYONE HAS A PLACE HERE. EVERYONE FEELS VALUED HERE. THE LAST AREA IS EDUCATOR AND STAFF CAPACITY, AND THAT'S ABOUT IMPROVING THE LEARNING EXPERIENCES FOR EVERY CHILD IN EVERY CLASSROOM. AND SO THE GUY BOOK THAT I MENTIONED EARLIER, UM, LIST SOME ACTIONS THAT SCHOOL SYSTEMS AND SCHOOLS SHOULD TAKE. ONE OF THOSE ACTIONS IS INCORPORATING STUDENT VOICE INTO PROFESSIONAL LEARNING TO SUPPORT CULTURAL RESPONSIVENESS OF SCHOOL STAFF, SO CULTURAL RESPONSIVENESS IS ALL THROUGH THE POLICY. IT'S ALL THROUGH THE GUIDEBOOK. IT'S SOMETHING THAT WE'VE BEEN DOING FOR DECADES. SO ANOTHER OF THE ACTIONS IT SAYS, USE LOCAL SCHOOL SYSTEM OR SCHOOL CLIMATE SURVEY DATA TO EXAMINE STUDENT PERCEPTIONS, PERCEPTIONS OF CULTURAL RESPONSIVENESS. CREATE AVENUES FOR STUDENT INPUT THAT WE'RE DOING. ALL OF THOSE THINGS ARE RACISM SURVEY WAS ONE OF THE WAYS THAT WE COLLECT THAT DATA. WE'RE ALSO ON MAY 21ST. WE HAD JUST SHY OF 100 STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN A VIRTUAL STUDENTS SUMMIT. IT WAS COMPLETELY STUDENT LED BY A GROUP CALLED VOICES OF EQUITY, AND THEY ARE DEDICATED TO ENSURING THAT. WE PUT THINGS IN PLACE IN OUR SCHOOL SO THAT EVERY STUDENT FEEL SAFE, EVERY STUDENT FEELS VALUED, UM THEIR CULTURES ARE VALUED. THEIR THOUGHTS ARE VALUE. THEIR EXPERIENCES ARE VALUED. APPROXIMATELY 67 OF THE STUDENTS ON THAT CALL WHERE ELEMENTARY THEY STAYED WITH US FOR TWO HOURS. WE COULDN'T BELIEVE IT BECAUSE IT WAS ALL VIRTUAL, BUT THEY STAY WITH US FOR TWO HOURS. THEY DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE AT THE END OF THE MEETING, AND ALL OF THEM EXPRESSED AN INTEREST IN CREATING AN ENVIRONMENT. WHERE THEY FELT PRIDE IN THEIR SCHOOLS. AND AGAIN, THEY FELT SAFE. THEY FELT LIKE THEY BELONGED. IN ADDITION, WE HEARD LOTS OF SCHOOL SPIRIT. UM THEY WERE POSTING IN THE CHAT. I SAW SQUIRRELS, PENGUINS DALMATIANS. THEY WERE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT BEING ALL TOGETHER IN ONE

[02:35:01]

SPACE. AND ALSO WE NOTICED THAT THEY WERE TRYING TO CONNECT WITH STUDENTS WHO WERE GOING TO THE MIDDLE SCHOOL. SO SOMEONE POSTED IN THE CHAT IS ANYONE GOING TO ABERDEEN? IS ANYONE GOING TO SOUTHAMPTON AND THEY WERE REALLY CONNECTING IN THAT WAY? THEY'RE JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF JOINING SOMETHING POSITIVE. UM, AS IT RELATES TO CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE TEACHING. I JUST WANT TO SHARE THAT IN 1973 ALMOST 50 YEARS AGO, WE HAD A POLICY HERE IN HARFORD COUNTY EDUCATION THAT IS MULTICULTURAL. AND IT WAS THE PURPOSE OF THAT POLICY WAS TO ESTABLISH A PROGRAM OF MULTICULTURAL EDUCATION FOR ALL SCHOOLS. IN ORDER TO, UM, PROMOTE DIVERSITY TO EDUCATE STUDENTS ABOUT DIVERSITY AND COMMONALITY. 50 YEARS AGO, SO OUR WORK REALLY HASN'T CHANGED ALL THAT MUCH, BUT WE CAN GET SMARTER ABOUT HOW WE DO IT. THAT POLICY, SAID THAT THE BOARD WAS DIRECTING THAT THE INSTRUCTION AND CURRICULUM THROUGHOUT ALL GREAT ENABLE STUDENTS TO DEMONSTRATE AN UNDERSTANDING OF AND AN APPRECIATION FOR CULTURAL GROUPS IN THE UNITED STATES. SO AGAIN, OUR WORK IS GOING TO CONTINUE IN THAT EFFORT. WE'RE JUST GOING TO DO IT A LITTLE BETTER. WE'RE GOING TO USE OUR DATA THAT WE HAVE, AND WE'RE GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR STUDENTS FEEL SAFE. EQUITABLE FEEL INCLUSIVE FOR ALL OF OUR STUDENTS. AND THE LAST THING I'LL SAY IS, IF YOU REALLY ARE INTERESTED IN A DEEPER DAD INTO WHAT CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE TEACHING LOOKS LIKE BECAUSE I KNOW WE'RE GETTING I'M STILL GETTING EMAILS AND QUESTIONS ABOUT CRITICAL RACE THEORY. SHARE A COUPLE OF CHARACTERISTICS. UM JUST TO SORT OF HAVE A BETTER UNDERSTANDING, SO ONE OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE TEACHING IS THAT WE HAVE A POSITIVE PERSPECTIVE ON PARENTS AND FAMILIES. SO WE START TO ENGAGE PARENTS IN DIALOGUE AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE ABOUT WHAT THEY HOPE FOR THEIR STUDENTS. WHAT DO THEY WHAT DO THEIR STUDENTS ASPIRE TO BE? AND DO? WE GET A SENSE OF WHAT THEY THINK THEIR STUDENTS NEED AND WE COLLABORATE WITH THEM SO THAT FAMILY ENGAGEMENT PIECES NECESSARY. UM, THE SECOND IS COMMUNICATION OF HIGH EXPECTATIONS. THAT MEANS THAT WE EXPECT. EVERY SINGLE STUDENT TO ACHIEVE AT HIGH LEVELS AND WE'RE GOING TO PUT THINGS IN PLACE SO THAT THEY ALL CAN DO THAT. LEARNING WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF CULTURE.

ACKNOWLEDGING THAT SOMETIMES PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT CULTURES LEARNING DIFFERENT WAYS THEIR EXPECTATIONS FOR LEARNING MIGHT BE DIFFERENT. FOR SOME, THEY MIGHT PREFER TO WORK IN GROUPS.

FOR OTHERS, THEY MIGHT PREFER TO WORK INDEPENDENTLY, AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE PROVIDE LEARNING EXPERIENCES THAT ALLOW THEM ALL TO ACHIEVE PERSONAL AND ACADEMIC SUCCESS. AND THEN THE LAST THING I'LL SAY ABOUT CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE TEACHING IS STUDENT CENTERED INSTRUCTION.

STUDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO DIRECT THEIR OWN LEARNING. THEY'RE ENCOURAGED TO HAVE A VOICE BECOME CONFIDENT, SELF DIRECTED AND PROACTIVE. THOSE ARE SOME OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE TEACHING THAT WE HAVE BEEN TEACHING AND THAT WE WILL CONTINUE TO TEACH. SO, UM, THAT'S MY UPDATE OUT. PAUSE TO SEE IF ANY OF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. ANY QUESTIONS? COMMENTS FOR DR STANTON. PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. DR MUELLER. I JUST WANTED TO THANK PAULA NOT ONLY FOR THE WORK THAT SHE'S DOING, BUT I REALLY APPRECIATE THE WAY SHE COMMUNICATED BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF MISCONCEPTION IN THE COMMUNITY. SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR CLARIFICATIONS. THANK YOU, UM, I MISS THIS CAR BACK. THANK YOU. CAN YOU HEAR ME? YEAH. ALL RIGHT, DR. STANTON THANK YOU SO MUCH, UM, ON. UM DR MUELLER, WHAT YOU SAID. IS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS GOING TO SAY. I THINK THAT THERE IS A MIS PERCEPTION ABOUT, UM WHAT IS THIS. DIFFERENCES ARE BETWEEN. THE TWO PHRASES OR DESCRIPTORS. AND.

IT'S IMPORTANT FOR PARENTS TO REALIZE AND FOR THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY TO REALIZE THAT THIS IS NOT CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE TEACHING. HAS BEEN AROUND NOW, AS YOU SAID, FOR OVER 25 YEARS.

AND IT IS SO NOT THE, UM. IT'S VERY POSITIVE WAY. UH LOOKING AT A CURRICULUM AND LOOKING AT STUDENT RESOURCE IS TO BE SURE. THAT AT SOME POINT. IN OUR LEARNING PROCESSES. WE ORYX WE LEARN ABOUT EACH OTHER. AND WE ARE REINFORCED ABOUT OUR OWN CULTURES. SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH. DR HAROLD. THANK YOU, PRESIDENT ROBINSON. UM, THANK YOU SO MUCH. DOCTOR STAND

[02:40:09]

BEFORE AGAIN, ANOTHER PROFOUND PRESENTATION AND UPDATE ON THE WORK THAT, UM. A GROUP OF WONDERFUL FOLKS ARE DOING. UM HIGHLY QUALIFIED PEOPLE LIKE YOURSELF. UM YOU KNOW? I'M NOT QUITE SURE HOW TO SAY THIS, BUT I THINK THAT. ONE OF THE WORRIES. YOU CAN HEAR IT FROM THE COMMENTS TONIGHT. AND WHEN YOU KNOW WE HAVE EMAILS THAT COME INTO THE BOARD. UM. TAKE ONE OF THE CONCERNS IS THAT YOU KNOW WHEN YOU START TALKING ABOUT RACE. AND THE LEGACY. UM THE REMNANTS OF, UM, A PART OF OUR AMERICAN HERITAGE. UM. NAMELY SLAVERY AND THE AND THE LEGACY OF SLAVERY, YOU KNOW? UM NOPE. SOME PEOPLE FEEL LIKE THEIR WHITENESS THERE. WHITE HERITAGE IS BEING ATTACKED, RIGHT AND THEY ARE. UM, UNDER ATTACK FOR THINGS THAT HAPPENED NOW, BUT NAMELY THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED, YOU KNOW, HUNDREDS OF YEARS BEFORE AND SO, UM. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THOSE? THOSE FOLKS, BOOM, YOU KNOW, ARE CONCERNED THAT YOU KNOW CHILDREN IN THE SCHOOLS. AREN'T YOU KNOW THAT INFORMATION IS GOING TO BE PRESENTED, UM, THAT WOULD YOU KNOW, UM MAKE THEM FEEL SHAMEFUL FOR BEING WHITE. UM AND PORTRAY A PICTURE THAT AMERICA IS A BAD COUNTRY. BECAUSE OF A PART OF OUR, UM YOU KNOW, HISTORY. CAN WE SPEAK TO THAT? I MEAN, I FEEL LIKE THAT'S THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM. BECAUSE WE TALK A LOT ABOUT WE WANT. WE WANT OUR CHILDREN TO FEEL SAFE. YOU KNOW, AS A BLACK AMERICAN, I WANT MY SON TO FEEL SAFE. SO YOU KNOW MY CHILDREN WHO FEEL SAFE AND. FOR THEM TO HAVE EQUITABLE. UM OPPORTUNITIES TO THEIR COUNTERPARTS. UM BUT THAT'S SOMETHING THAT I THINK NEEDS TO BE SAID, BECAUSE THAT'S I DON'T BELIEVE AND NOTHING THAT TROOPS THAT HAS INDICATED THAT THAT WOULD BE. THE INTENTION OF THE WORK OF THIS GROUP. SO I'D LIKE YOU TO JUST SHARE SOME THOUGHTS ON THAT. THANK YOU. SURE UM, I WOULD SAY THAT IF WE WERE TEACHING A GROUP OF STUDENTS THAT. THEY ARE THE OPPRESSORS OR THAT SOMEHOW THEY SHOULD FEEL RESPONSIBLE FOR THINGS THAT HAPPENED IN OUR HISTORY, AND THAT WOULD BE, UM, CONTRADICTING OUR VISION. OUR MISSION, OUR VALUES, IT WOULD BE CONTRADICTING CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE INSTRUCTION BECAUSE EVERYONE BELONGS TO CULTURES, MANY OF THEM WE ALL, PROBABLY ALL BICULTURAL. AND SO, UM, IT'S NOT ABOUT ONE CULTURE AND THAT'S THE POINT. THE POINT IS THAT OUR KIDS NEED TO EXPERIENCE MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVES. THEY NEED TO KNOW THAT THERE'S MORE THAN ONE WAY OF THINKING ABOUT SOMETHING.

THERE'S MORE THAN ONE WAY OF DOING SOMETHING AND THAT YOU CAN STILL BE FRIENDS WITH SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T SHARE YOUR VIEWS, OR YOU CAN STILL COMMUNICATE WITH SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T SHARE ALL OF YOUR VIEWS BECAUSE. YOU KNOW, UM, EXPERIENCING DIVERSITY OR HEARING ABOUT DIVERSE YOU POINTS MAKES THIS MORE INTELLIGENT, MORE ABLE TO ENGAGE IN CRITICAL CONVERSATIONS ABOUT A VARIETY OF TOPICS. SO, UM, WE WOULD NOT, UM, PROMOTE ANY EFFORTS TO MAKE ANY GROUPS FEEL LIKE THEY ARE LESS THAN THAT'S NOT THE POINT. THE POINT IS THAT WE WANT EVERY SINGLE KID EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM TO FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE A PLACE IN HARFORD COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS, AND SOME OF OUR DATA SUGGEST THAT MANY OF OUR KIDS DO. BUT WHEN THE KIDS TELL US THAT THEY DON'T THEN WERE NEGLIGENT WHEN WE DON'T RESPOND, SO I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW THAT WE ARE REALLY JUST FOCUSING ON OUR STUDENTS. WE'RE FOCUSING ON WHAT THEY'RE TELLING US. AND IN THIS NOT JUST ABOUT THE RACISM SURVEY, WE HAVE BULLYING AND HARASSMENT REPORTS THAT COME IN. I GET REPORTS TO MY OFFICE. DAILY MORE THAN ONE A DAY ABOUT THINGS THAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING AND DOING AND OUR STUDENTS ARE WONDERFUL. WE'RE NOT SAYING THAT, BUT THEY ARE KIDS AND THEY ARE LEARNING THINGS AND HEARING THINGS AND REPEATING THINGS. AND SO, UM, OUR EFFORT IS REALLY ABOUT HELPING OUR STUDENTS BE BETTER AND HELPING OURSELVES TO BE BETTER. AND SO, UM, I KNOW THAT THERE IS A FEAR THAT WE ARE TEACHING SOMETHING THAT WE'RE NOT. AND SO WE NEED TO HAVE CONVERSATIONS WITH THE COMMUNITY ABOUT THIS. I THINK WE NEED TO. WE NEED TO SPEAK HONESTLY AND TRUTHFULLY BECAUSE I HEAR A LOT OF THINGS HAPPENING OR BEING SAID IT JUST SIMPLY AREN'T TRUE. IT STOPS AND I APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS CAN SURE. I'M GOOD, MS MCCARTY AND THEN TWO UNITS, CODY.

THANKS VERY MUCH. PRESIDENT ROBINSON. UM. THANK YOU AGAIN, UH, DR STANTON FOR YOUR HELP AND EVERYTHING YOU'VE DONE. UM TO TRY TO, UM, CONTINUE OUR JOURNEY. HARFORD COUNTY PUBLIC

[02:45:01]

SCHOOLS, BUT. TWO QUESTIONS THEY HAVE. THE FIRST ONE IS. IS THE TEACHING OF CRITICAL RACE THEORY ALLOWED IN THE STATE OF MARYLAND. THANK YOU FOR THAT QUESTION. SO I'VE BEEN TRYING TO. I'VE BEEN READING A LOT OF ARTICLES TO SEE WHAT WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO TEACH CRITICAL RACE THEORY? I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS CURRICULUM THAT PEOPLE SAY EXIST AND I CAN'T FIND IT. AND WHAT I THINK PEOPLE MIGHT MEAN BECAUSE I'VE ASKED A COUPLE OF COMMUNITY MEMBERS AS I THINK PEOPLE MIGHT MEAN ARE WE TEACHING? UM ASPECTS OF THE TENETS OF CRITICAL RACE THEORY? ARE WE TEACHING THAT UM. SOME OF THE COMMENTS HAVE BEEN. ARE WE TEACHING THAT CERTAIN GROUPS ARE OPPRESSORS? ARE WE TEACHING THAT OUR HISTORY WAS FOUNDED ON RACISM? ARE WE TEACHING THAT WHITENESS IS PROPERTY, YOU KNOW, AND SO, UM. THOSE ARE NOT PART OF OUR CURRICULUM. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE THEY WOULD FIT IN IN OUR CURRICULUM, BUT, UM, WHAT I'M SEEING AS I LOOK AT DIFFERENT ARTICLES AND TRY TO BECOME MORE INFORMED ABOUT. THE DEBATE AROUND CRITICAL RACE THEORY. WHAT I'M SEEING IS THAT PEOPLE, UM EQUATE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT RACE WITH CRITICAL RACE THEORY OR THEY QUIT CONVERSATIONS ABOUT DIVERSITY WITH CRITICAL RACE THEORY. AND THAT'S FRANKLY SOMETIMES BECAUSE OF THE MEDIA. UM CERTAIN MEDIA OUTLETS ARE LUMPING ALL OF THOSE TOPICS TOGETHER, AND I THINK PEOPLE RATHER THAN UM, YOU KNOW WE WERE WHOEVER WHATEVER MEDIA WE, UM. CONSUME WE TEND TO BELIEVE THAT AND SO I WOULD JUST ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO READ MORE OF THE PROFESSIONAL LITERATURE AROUND CRITICAL RACE THEORY THAN LISTENING TO MEDIA IS THAT'S WHAT I DO. I DON'T GO TO A NEW SITE TO LEARN ABOUT CRITICAL RACE THEORY. I'M REALLY GOING TO SCHOLARS AND EXPERTS TO SEE WHAT THEY SAY AND WHAT I'M SEEING IS IT'S MOSTLY MOSTLY WOULDN'T BE SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE TAUGHT.

IN A SCHOOL WOULD BE TAUGHT INTO COLLEGE. IF ANYWHERE UM SO. I'M JUST NOT SURE. UM YOU KNOW WHY WE KEEP GETTING THE QUESTIONS? UM EXCEPT THAT I THINK PEOPLE THINK JUST BECAUSE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT CERTAIN TOPICS LIKE RACE THAT THAT MEANS THAT IT'S CRITICAL RACE HERE, AND THAT IS NOT THE CASE. AND THE TENANTS OF CRITICAL RACE THEORY ARE NOT PART OF THE MARYLAND START TO PIT M STE CURRICULUM. THEY ARE NOT. THAT'S TO MY KNOWLEDGE. THEY ARE NOT. NO, THANK YOU. AND, UM. SHOULD UM, A PARENT OR A CHILD COME HOME TO A PARENT OR HAVE A CONCERN ABOUT AN ACTIVITY. THAT MIGHT BE, UH, CREATED AROUND THE PRIVILEGE OR ABOUT, UM UH HUH. POSSIBLY ONE OF THE TENANTS THAT, UM THAT THAT PARENT HAS A PROBLEM WITH.

APPROPRIATE COURSE OF ACTION WOULD BE. I SEE A LOT ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND I SEE A LOT OF CONCERNS AND I CAN SEE WHERE THERE MAY BE CONCERNED OF WHAT MIGHT BE HAPPENING IN A PARTICULAR ACTIVITY. IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING THAT THAT SHOULD BE REALLY ESCALATED RIGHT THROUGH THE BOARD OF EDUCATION SITE AND THAT YOU WILL ENSURE THAT SOMEONE INVESTIGATES AND WOULD RESPOND TO THAT CONCERN. THROUGH THE HARVARD COUNTY PUBLISHED THOSE WEBSITE. IS THAT CORRECT? THAT IS CORRECT, BUT I WOULD ALSO SUGGEST THAT IF I HAVE ASKED FOR I'VE HEARD SOME OF THE SAME THINGS THAT YOU'VE HEARD, AND I'VE ASKED FOR THESE ASSIGNMENTS AND I HAVEN'T GOTTEN THEM. SO, UM, YOU KNOW IF MY CHILD WERE IN SCHOOL, AND I SAW SOMETHING TROUBLE AND COME HOME, I WOULD ASK THE TEACHER ABOUT THE ASSIGNMENT JUST TO MAKE SURE I UNDERSTOOD WHAT WAS HAPPENING. BUT CERTAINLY SENDING THOSE, UM, INQUIRIES THROUGH MY OFFICE.

I WOULD CERTAINLY INVESTIGATED AND DETERMINE WHAT'S HAPPENING, BUT I HAVE YET TO RECEIVE AN ASSIGNMENT. UM. THAT I'VE HEARD REFERENCE ON SOME SOCIAL MEDIA SITES, EVEN GOTTEN EMAILS AND I SAID OKAY, GET ME THE ASSIGNMENT. LET ME TAKE A LOOK AT IT SO THAT I CAN FIGURE OUT WHAT'S HAPPENING AND I STILL HAVEN'T RECEIVED THEM SO I WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO ADDRESS THAT, BUT I JUST HAVEN'T SEEN IT. AND THAT'S I GUESS WHAT THE POINT I'M TRYING TO MAKE JUST ESCALATE THROUGH THE HARPER COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOL BOARD OF EDUCATION SITE. IT GOES TO ALL THE BOARD MEMBERS. IT'LL GET ASSIGNED DIRECTLY TO YOU IF YOU DON'T RECEIVE IT INITIALLY AND THAT THOSE CONCERNS WILL BE ADDRESSED, AND THAT'S THE APPROPRIATE COURSE OF ACTION. WOULD YOU AGREE? I AGREE. THANK YOU SO MUCH. YOU'RE WELCOME. LET'S GO TO A.

THANK YOU. I JUST WANTED TO SAY THE DOCTOR STANTON. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I THINK IT'S SO IMPORTANT. THAT WE ARE CONTINUING TO HAVE CONVERSATIONS WITH STUDENTS, ENCOURAGING THEM. TO EXPLORE THEIR OWN CULTURE AND, YOU KNOW, RECOGNIZING THE FACT THAT.

KNOWING MORE AND BEING ACCEPTING AND LOOKING AT THINGS MORE CRITICALLY. IN THAT ARENA ONLY STANDS TO MAKE OUR KIDS STRONGER THINKERS. AND BETTER CITIZENS OVERALL. UM. AND I JUST I'M VERY GRATEFUL FOR THE WORK. I'M VERY GRATEFUL FOR OUR TEACHERS WHO ARE CONTINUING THE WORK. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR CLARIFYING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN. UH CULTURALLY

[02:50:06]

RESPONSIVE TEACHING AND CRITICAL RACE THEORY. YOU'RE SO MUCH MORE ELOQUENT WITH IT THAN I AM. I'M JUST SO PLEASED ABOUT IT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALL YOUR DOING. THANK YOU. DR STANTON. I'M JUST. WOULD LIKE, FIRST OF ALL I REALLY, YOU KNOW, EVERY TIME I LISTEN TO YOU, I SPEAK TO YOU. I AGAIN A PEOPLE APPRECIATION FOR YOU AND THE WORK THAT YOU DO. UM, THE NEXT THING I LIKE, I JUST LIKE THAT IF YOU COULD GIVE US A HIGH LEVEL OVERVIEW. AND THE AND THE CURRICULUM. UH THE PROCESS FROM THE, UH, DEVELOPMENT TO APPROVAL. HOW WHATEVER THE CURRICULUM, BUT THERE'S THIS ONE OR WHATEVER IT IS. WHAT WHAT IS THAT PROCESS? I'M ACTUALLY PROBABLY NOT THE BEST PERSON TO GIVE THAT OVER YOUR DOCTOR BROWN ON THE CAR, SHE PROBABLY WOULD BE BETTER ABLE TO DO THAT. UM I WORKED IN THE CURRICULUM OFFICE AND I'M PRESENT. UM AND A LOT OF CONVERSATIONS AROUND CURRICULUM. UM, BUT I WOULDN'T SAY THAT I'M THE MOST WELL VERSED ON CURRICULUM FROM BEGINNING TO END. I THINK DR BROWN IS ON.

ARE FASTER. GOOD. GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE. THIS IS SUSAN BROWN, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR FOR THE CURRICULUM OFFICE. AND, UM. I WOULD JUST WANT TO ECHO WHAT DR STANTON SAID. SHE'S VERY ELOQUENT AND CERTAINLY AN EXPERT IN THIS AREA WHEN WE THINK ABOUT CURRICULUM, ALL OF OUR CURRICULUM IS BEDDED THROUGH A COMMITTEE THAT WE HAVE. IT'S CALLED GENERAL CURRICULUM COMMITTEE. WHEN WE BEGIN TO LOOK AT ANY NEW PROGRAM, UM WE INVOLVE MANY STAKEHOLDERS. UM, MOST RECENTLY, WE LOOKED AT A MATHEMATICS PROGRAM. THAT STARTED WITH LOOKING AT, UM. STAKEHOLDERS FROM EVERY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND INCLUDED STAKEHOLDERS AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL LEVEL. UM WHEN WE THINK ABOUT LOOKING AT A TEXTBOOK ADOPTION OR ANY TYPE OF. RESOURCE THAT WE'RE GOING TO INCLUDE THAT INFORMATION COMES THROUGH GCC. SOMETIMES IT'S INFORMATIONAL, UM REPORTS BUT SUCH AS AN UPDATE AND INCLUDING NEW MATERIAL THAT WE MIGHT HAVE. IF IT'S A BRAND NEW CURRICULUM, THEN WE BEGAN AT THE VERY BEGINNING. WE DO OUR RESEARCH OUR CONTENT SUPERVISORS. UM SURVEY AROUND THE STATE, UM AROUND THE COUNTRY TO SEE WHAT OTHER ORGANIZATIONS ARE USING IN THEIR CLASSROOMS. WE DO WORK WITH THE MARYLAND STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION. ALL OF OUR CURRICULUM IS ALIGNED TO, UM STATE, LOCAL AND NATIONAL, UM, STANDARDS DEPENDING ON THE CONTENT AREA. SO, FOR INSTANCE, MATHEMATICS AND READING. IS ALIGNED. BOTH OF THEM ARE ALIGNED TO THE COMMON CORE STANDARDS, WHICH IN MARYLAND, UM, WE ADOPTED IN 2013, AND THEY ARE NAMED THE MARYLAND COLLEGE CAREER AND READY STANDARDS. SO IT IS A. LONG PROCESS. WE INCLUDE ADMINISTRATORS AND TEACHERS. WE INCLUDE PARENTS AS PART OF THAT PROCESS AND THAT BETTING. AND FROM THERE, UM, WE LOOK AT MATERIALS THAN WE MHM. REALLY ENGAGE WITH OUR TEACHERS TO WRITE CURRICULUM. UM, AND LAST YEAR IN PARTICULAR, WE REWROTE EVERY SINGLE CURRICULUM WE HAD, UM, REALLY DUE TO THE PANDEMIC. AND LOOKED AT THE CRITICAL CONTENT IN TERMS OF WHAT WAS MOST ESSENTIAL FOR US TO MAKE SURE OUR TEACHERS HAD AND THEN WE EMPOWER THEM TO MAKE DECISIONS AS THE PROFESSIONALS THAT THEY ARE. ALIGNED TO TWO LITTLE CURRICULUM THAT WE PROVIDE. SO IT IS AN INTRICATE PROCESS. IT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT WE TAKE LIGHTLY. UM AND WE DO LOOK TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL CHILDREN CAN SEE THEIR THEMSELVES IN THE CURRICULUM AND BE PART OF THAT CONVERSATION AS DR STANTON HAS, UM MENTIONED THIS EVENING.

THANK YOU. THAN ANY OF THE QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS. UH, DR HELL. THANK YOU. I JUST I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU AGAIN. UM, YOUR ELABORATION ON THAT. PEACE IS CRITICAL BECAUSE YOU KNOW? JUST TO THINK QUICKLY BEYOND. YOU KNOW STUDENTS IN THIS AND NOT THEIR CURRENT SCHOOLS, LEARNING ABOUT OTHER CULTURES BEING ABLE TO FIND THE WORDS INTO. DEVELOP CULTURAL COMPETENCE AND TO ENGAGE WITH THEIR TEACHERS AROUND, UM, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION RIGHT AND LEARNING MORE ABOUT THEMSELVES AND OTHERS. YOU KNOW, WE ARE ALL A PART OF AN EDUCATION COMMUNITY. THAT IS CONTRIBUTING TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF GLOBAL LEADERS. WE ARE

[02:55:01]

GLOBAL SOCIETY. SO WHEN WE THINK ABOUT OUR KIDS GOING TO COLLEGE, I MEAN. THIS IS THE FRAMEWORK. THIS IS THE FOUNDATION FOR FAMILIARITY AROUND TOPICS THAT THEY'RE LEARNING COLLEGE AND THEN IN THE WORKFORCE AND THEN ON TO WHATEVER ELSE, UH, WHATEVER OTHER MAGIC THEY'LL DO AS ADULTS. AND SO YOU KNOW, I HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY IN MY WORK TO INTERVIEW A LOT OF DIFFERENT PEOPLE FOR WORK AND THINGS LIKE THAT, AND TO MEET A LOT OF PEOPLE FROM LOTS OF DIFFERENT PLACES AND. THIS IS MAKING OUR KIDS MORE COMPETITIVE. IT'S ADDING TO THEIR THEIR TOOL BELT THEY'LL USE WHEN THEY ARE FORGING INTO, UM, THEIR ADOLESCENCE AND ADULTHOOD. SO I'M REALLY PROUD OF THIS WORK. I'M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO ADDING THIS AS A STRENGTH. UM TO OUR OUR DISTRICT. SO I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU AGAIN. THANK YOU. THANK YOU, DOCTOR HAROLD ANY ANYONE ELSE? YOU KNOW OTHER HANDS ACTUALLY, STANTON AGAIN.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRESENTATION. THANK YOU. NEXT ITEM ON THE AGENDA, BUT TONIGHT

[G. Update on Assessing Facility Utilization and Balancing School Enrollment, Mr. Cornell Brown, AssistantSuperintendent for Operations and Ms. Missy Valentino, Facilities Planner]

IS AN UPDATE ON ASSESSING FACILITY UTILIZATION. AND BALANCING SCHOOL ENROLLMENT THAT A NEW NAME MR CORNELL BROWN. GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE. UM MY NAME IS QUINOA BROWN. I'M THE ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT. OPERATIONS UH, THANK YOU, PRESIDENT ROBINSON. VICE PRESIDENT GAUTIER, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD SUPERINTENDENT, BOTH HIM. I'VE BEEN ASKED TO GIVE AN UPDATE. ON OUR BALANCING ENROLLMENT INITIATIVE. THAT'S CURRENTLY UNDERWAY AND WE'VE HEARD AND WE HAVE BEEN FOR THE LAST SEVERAL ON BOARD MEETINGS, HEARD A LOT OF FEEDBACK AND INPUT FROM THE COMMUNITY. AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT WE EXPECTED. I JUST LIKE TO REMIND FOLKS THAT. IN THE FALL. OUR SCHOOL BOARD APPROVED THE CONTRACT. UM FOR CONSULTING SERVICES TO ON FLOW ANALYTICS AND SEVERAL OF THEIR, UM SUB CONSULTANTS. THE BALANCING ENROLLMENT INITIATIVE. I'M IN A IN THE DELIVERABLES THAT WE'VE, I'M ASKED, UM, FLOW AND THEIR TEAM TO DELIVER. UM, WASN'T ONLY. TO LOOK AT OUR BUILDING CAPACITY AND TO HELP US.

DEVELOPED RECOMMENDATIONS TO BETTER USE OUR FACILITIES AND BALANCED ENROLLMENT THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. THERE ARE SEVERAL OTHER INITIATIVES. UM. AND DELIVERABLES THAT WE ARE TASKED. THE TEAM OF TO DELIVER TO A CPS. SO I JUST WANTED TO REMIND THE BOARD AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC. THAT SCOPES 30 FOR HOMESTEAD WAKEFIELD ELEMENTARY WAS ALSO INCLUDED IN THAT SCOPE OF WORK. THE TEAM. UM, DID REVIEW THE HAUNTS THAT WAKEFIELD ELEMENTARY SCULPT STUDY THAT WAS DONE LIKE 2000 AND 8 2009. AND THE BOARD DID APPROVE THAT SCHOOL STUDY AND WE'VE SINCE MOVED FORWARD WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE EDUCATIONAL SPECIFICATIONS AND THAT WILL BE COMING TO THE BOARD. I'M SHORTLY. ALSO UNDER THEIR SCOPE OF WORK WAS THE REVIEW OF THE PROPOSED LOCATION FOR JOHN ARCHER. UM, TWO WEEKS AGO, WE RECEIVED THE DRAFT REPORT, AND WE'RE CONTINUING TO BET THAT, UM, YOU KNOW, ANALYSIS INTERNALLY. AND WORK WITH THE SUPERINTENDENT TO DEVELOP RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE BOARD. UM AND THAT WILL BE COMING TO OR SHORTLY, FORCE DELIBERATION AND DECISION MAKING. WE'RE ALSO WORKING WITH THE TEAM. TO LOOK AT, YOU KNOW, LONG TERM SOLUTIONS AND ANALYSIS. UM, IS BEING CONDUCTED, UH, TO LOOK AT, UM, SCENARIOS BEYOND. THE IMMEDIATE BALANCING ENROLLMENT TO, YOU KNOW, LOOK AT POSSIBLY. THE NEED FOR ADDITIONAL SEATS TO ACCOMMODATE, UH, YOU KNOW, FUTURE GROWTH. UM, AND THAT INFORMATION WILL HELP TO INFORM OUR FUTURE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM. THAT COULD BE A NEW SCHOOL. THAT'S BEING UM, YOU KNOW, RECOMMENDED AUDITIONS AND THINGS OF THAT SORT PROGRAM ENHANCEMENTS. YOU KNOW SO OVER THE NEXT YEAR WILL BE USING THIS DATA ALONG WITH DATA THAT THE STATE WILL PASS ON TO MERLIN ELIA'S AFTER THEY COMPLETE THEIR FACILITY ASSESSMENT. SO THE SHORT TERM, UM, IS TO LOOK AT BALANCING

[03:00:01]

ENROLLMENT. BUT THEN THERE ARE SOME LONG TERM ADJUSTMENTS THAT WILL NEED TO TAKE A LOOK AT, UM TO ADDRESS FUTURE GROWTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM NEEDS AND THINGS OF THAT SORT. SO ALL OF THESE THINGS, UM, ARE WRAPPED UP INTO, UM THE CONTRACT. UM, WITH FLOW, UM, ANALYTICS, AND WE'RE HOPING THAT, UM, YOU KNOW, OVER THE NEXT. YOU KNOW A FEW MONTHS THAT WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK WITH THE TEAM IN ORDER TO, UM DEVELOP, UM, YOU KNOW, DEVELOP OUR RECOMMENDATIONS. SO WITH THAT SAID. UM WE ARE NOW AND STEP TWO. NEARING THE CONCLUSION OF OUR STEP TO ASSESSMENT. UM YOU KNOW OF OUR BUILDING CAPACITY AND STUDENT ENROLLMENT. AND I WOULD BE REMISS TO NOT BRING UP. UM THE HARD EFFORTS OF MISSY VOLUNTEER NO. AND MR CHRISTOPHER MORTON. THEY HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB AND BEATING OR ADVISORY COMMITTEE. WE'VE HAD SIX ADVISORY COMMITTEE MEETINGS AND TO FOLLOW UP SUB MEETINGS. THAT'S A TOTAL OF EIGHT MEETINGS TO DATE, AND NEXT WEEK, WE WILL HAVE OUR NINTH ADVISORY COMMITTEE MEETING. AND WE HAVE THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE OF YOU KNOW, SOMEWHERE NEAR 30 INDIVIDUALS. UM, THAT'S UM, YOU KNOW, COMPRISE THE PARENTS AND. UM YOU KNOW, GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES LIKE FROM THE HARTFORD COUNTY PLANNING, ZONING OFFICE, UM AND OUR INTERNAL CONTENT EXPERTS AND.

TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES. CURRICULUM SAFETY SECURITY, UH, SPECIAL ADS ARE STUDENT SERVICES. UM AND SO WE HAVE, UM, YOU KNOW REPRESENTATIVES, UM BOTH INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL STAKEHOLDERS. ARE ENGAGED TO, YOU KNOW, CONDUCT THIS VERY DIFFICULT WORK. AND THEY, UM YOU KNOW, PRETTY MUCH SACRIFICE, UH, TO DATE EIGHT EVENINGS. YOU KNOW, PRETTY LONG DAYS TO, YOU KNOW, JUST DO THE HARD WORK. BUT THE WORK WITH REALLY, UM, PROGRESS AS IT HAS WITHOUT THE INPUT, YOU KNOW FROM THE COMMUNITY, SO AS EXPECTED, AND I LIKE TO, UM, YOU KNOW, THANK THE BOARD FOR COMMENTS AT THE. YOU KNOW, ON SET OF TONIGHT'S MEETING? UM, WHERE THERE'S UM THIS, UM, CONCERN ABOUT TRANSPARENCY VERSUS THE TIMING. OF MAKING IF INFORMATION AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC FOR PUBLIC CONSUMPTION, AND THAT WAS DONE INTENTIONALLY, UM IN ORDER TO, UH YOU KNOW, GET FEEDBACK AND INPUT. FROM THE COMMUNITY AND THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE HAS BEEN, UM YOU KNOW, WORKING DILIGENTLY TO REVIEW THAT INFORMATION, RESPOND TO THAT INFORMATION AND CONTINUE TO FINE TUNE. THE VARIOUS SCENARIOS THAT WOULD ULTIMATELY END AND RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE SUPERINTENDENT. UM. SO AT THE END OF THIS MONTH, BEGINNING OF JULY, WE EXPECT, UM TWO AFTER WE'VE TAKEN, UM SOME ADDITIONAL FEEDBACK AND ALLOW TRANSPORTATION TO KIND OF ZERO IN ON SOME OF THE MORE DIFFICULT, UM, REVIEWS. WE WOULD EXPECT TO HAVE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT COULD GO TO THE SUPERINTENDENT OF AS MENTIONED, UM, YOU KNOW, BOX SEVERAL IN TONIGHT'S ON PUBLIC COMMENT. WE DID HAVE OUR COMMUNITY EDUCATION FORUM. UM YOU KNOW, WE KIND OF SPLIT IT IN SO THAT WE COULD FOCUS ON UM, YOU KNOW? OUR SECONDARY. PLUS I'M SOME BUSINESS TO OUR ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS SCENARIOS. UM, THAT WAS DOOMED THE SECOND IN JUNE 3RD THAT WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY. UM AND THAT FOLLOWED THE APRIL 14TH COMMUNITY EDUCATION FORMS WHERE WE FOCUSED ON, UM, THE EARLY ITERATIONS OF THE SCENARIOS THAT THE TEAM WAS WORKING ON HIM. IT'S A CONTINUING PROCESS. UM AND AS I HAVE REPORTED, YOU KNOW, AT PREVIOUS BOARD MEETINGS, UM YOU KNOW, EVERY DAY WE'RE MAKING REVISIONS AND MODIFICATIONS REVIEWING INPUT AND FEEDBACK, UM, TALKING TO OUR TRANSPORTATION STAFF, HAVING CONVERSATIONS WITH OUR INSTRUCTIONAL. UM, YOU KNOW, FOLKS, AND I'M TALKING TO YOU PLANNING HIS OWN AND LOOKING AT RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT DATA IN ORDER TO FINE TUNE, FINE TUNE. I MEAN, TWEAK THOSE SCENARIOS AND HOPEFULLY. AT THE END OF THIS MONTH. WE WILL HAVE, UM, YOU KNOW, RECOMMENDATIONS THAT THE ADVISORY TEAM IS VERY COMFORTABLE AND CAN STAND ON BEHIND SO MOVING FORWARD. WHEN WE SIT DOWN TO BRIEF THE SUPERINTENDENT, BRING HIM UP TO SPEED ON THE SCENARIOS, ANSWER HIS QUESTIONS AND BACK UNDER THE RECOMMENDATIONS TO HIM. WILL BE WORKING WITH DR BOSTON

[03:05:06]

TO, UM, CREATE A THE NEXT PHASE. THE NEXT STAGE OF OUR COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT. UM YOU KNOW AN EFFORTS. UM, WHERE THE SUPERINTENDENT WILL ENGAGE. THE PUBLIC TO CONTINUE TO RECEIVE INPUT AND FEEDBACK. UM, SO THAT HE HIMSELF CAN START TO DIGEST, UM, AND BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE BLACK COMMENDATIONS AND THE CONCERNS FROM THE PUBLIC. AND UM, WE'LL CHARGE THE, UM, THE TEAM TOO, YOU KNOW. CONTINUE TO BE FINE. CONTINUE TO ADJUST. CONTINUE UM, TO RESPOND SO THAT THE SCENARIOS AND RECOMMENDATIONS UM AND EVEN BE FURTHER IMPROVED. UM, BEFORE.

SUPERINTENDENT FEELS COMFORTABLE, UM AND DEVELOPING HIS RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE BOARD. OUR HOPE IS NOT TO, UM. I BELIEVE IT WAS GOOD. I MENTIONED THAT IN DECEMBER. UM WE ARE PUSHING SO THAT, UM, IN OCTOBER THAT THE SUPERINTENDENT CAN WRAP UP HIS EFFORTS, AND THAT'S OUR, UM, YOU KNOW, THAT'S OUR GOAL AT THIS POINT. OBVIOUSLY IF WE NEED TO ADJUST, AND WE WILL SO THAT WE, YOU KNOW, WE WANT WE WANT TO DO IT RIGHT AND NOT RUSHED PROCESS, BUT WE DO WANT TO GIVE THE BOARD AND THE PUBLIC I'M TIME. UM TO, UM, YOU KNOW, WORK, UM FOR PHASES THREE BECAUSE WE GOT TO MAKE THESE DECISIONS IN FEBRUARY. SO IN OCTOBER, WE'LL HAVE NOVEMBER DECEMBER AND IN SOME OF FEBRUARY TO WORK WITH OUR SCHOOL BOARD AND WORK WITH THE PUBLIC TO AGAIN GET ADDITIONAL FEEDBACK AND INPUT. SO THAT THE BOARD CAN CHARGE THE TUBE INTENDED TO CHARGE THE TEAM, UM, TO MAKE ADDITIONAL REFINEMENT IF THEY FEEL THAT'S NECESSARY BEFORE THE BOARD MAKES HIS FINAL DECISION IN FEBRUARY. WE WILL AT THAT POINT WELL, NOT AT THAT POINT, BUT PARALLEL TO THAT PROCESS, AND WE ALSO BE COMING TO THE BOARD WITH SOME POLICY AND IMPLEMENTATION RECOMMENDATIONS. WE HAVE A BALANCING ENROLLMENT POLICY. UM THERE'S BEEN SOME DISCUSSIONS ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT THAT POLICY TO STAND, AS IS OR IF SOME ADJUSTMENTS ARE WARRANTED. SO, UM, WE HAVE ALREADY STARTED OUR DISCUSSIONS THERE. TO TAKE A LOOK AT THAT POLICY AND FORMULATE SOME RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE SUPERINTENDENT. UM AND RECOMMENDATIONS THAT WILL GO TO THE BOARD ON POLICY DO COMMITTEE. SEE WHAT ADJUSTMENTS IF ANY, UM, ARE WARRANTED. UM OUR BOUNDARY EXCEPTION. UM PROCEDURE IS SOMETHING THAT WE'VE ALREADY STARTED SOME PRELIMINARY DISCUSSIONS TO ADDRESS SOME BOUNDARY EXCEPTION, THINGS THAT MIGHT NEED TO BE KIND OF FINE TUNED AND TWEAKED. AND OBVIOUSLY THE IMPLEMENTATION PROCESS. UM THINGS LIKE GRANDFATHERING. UM YOU KNOW, MAGNET PROGRAMS, SIGNATURE PROGRAMS AND, UM YOU KNOW THE IMPACT TO STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THOSE PROGRAMS. WE NEED TO COME, UM TO THE BOARD, WITH SOME RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE BOARD TO CONSIDER AND DELIBERATE ON. UM YOU KNOW WHAT GRANDFATHERING BREWERS, WE WOULD APPLY AS WE GO FORWARD TO IMPLEMENT. YOU KNOW ANY ADJUSTMENTS? AND I'M LAST.

THEY'RE LIKE, UM, JUST SAY FOR THE BOARD AND FOR THOSE WHO ARE LISTENING IMPLEMENTATION. SO THERE'S A REASON WHY THE POLICY, UM INDICATES THAT THE BOARD'S DECISION MUST BE MADE SIX MONTHS PRIOR TO IMPLEMENTATION. SO THERE'S A STAGE THAT'S NOT ON OUR CURRENT GRAPHIC, UM, WHERE IMPLEMENTATION IS SOMETHING THAT WE WILL BE WORKING, UM, WITH OUR STAKEHOLDERS, INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL TO COMMUNICATE WHAT WE'RE DOING TO GIVE TRANSPORTATION SOME ADDITIONAL TIME TO UM, LOOK AT BROWSE, MAKE ANY ADJUSTMENTS THERE, UM, TO WORK WITH OUR STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES TO WORK WITH OUR SPECIAL ED DEPARTMENT. UM, AND THERE'S JUST WORK THAT WOULD BE ONGOING TO PREPARE. THE YOU KNOW, 22 23 SCHOOL YEAR, UM, TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE PUTTING SUPPORTS IN PLACE AND WORKING OUT IN IRAN OUT SOME OF THOSE IMPLEMENTATION ISSUES. THAT WE NEED TO WORK ON. UM SO IT'S AN ONGOING PROCESS AND YOU HAVE TO THINK THAT WE ARE NOW JUNE OF 2021. WE'RE NOT LOOKING FOR, UM, A DECISION. WANT TO BE MADE UNTIL FEBRUARY OF 2022. BUT THEN WE HAVE, YOU KNOW TIME TO IMPLEMENT, SO WE'RE MORE THAN A YEAR AWAY, UM, TO GO THROUGH THE EVALUATION PROCESS. THEM TO ADJUST ANY POLICY AND PROCEDURAL MATTERS BUT THEN ALSO TO ALLOW THE VARIOUS DEPARTMENTS TO WORK ON THE

[03:10:01]

DETAILS AND SPECIFICS WITH SCHOOLS AND THEIR FAMILIES TO DETERMINE HOW, UM YOU KNOW WE WOULD IMPLEMENT THIS IN SUPPORT OF YOU KNOW, STUDENTS AND TEACHERS. SO THAT KIND OF UM, UM YOU KNOW, COMPLETES MY BRIEFING FOR THIS EVENING. UM WE'RE HERE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU HAVE. BUT AGAIN, I JUST LIKE TO THANK THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE AND I LIKE TO THANK MISSY AND CHRIS FOR YOU KNOW, LEADING US ALONG THE WAY. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. UM.

IT'S CALLED. A MUTE. THANK YOU. UM. MR BROWN. HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS I'D LIKE TO ASK JUST FOR CLARIFICATION. AND, UM. MUCH INPUT. DO WE REALLY HAVE WITH THE COUNTY? UM, BUILDING AND ZONING PEOPLE. YOU'RE PLANNING AND ZONING OFFICES. WHAT DO YOU MEAN? INPUT INPUT ON RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT? CORRECT. WELL, THE ADEQUATE, UM, THE AP FO THE ADEQUATE PUBLIC FACILITIES ORDINANCE KIND OF SET SOME GUIDELINES THAT, UM, LIMIT. UM, THE ISSUANCE OF NEW RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT PERMITS. ONCE SCHOOLS BEACH A CERTAIN CAPACITY. UM SO THAT IS, I DON'T WANT TO SAY INPUT. BUT THAT KIND OF CONTROLS ANY GROWTH THAT WOULD OCCUR WHEN SCHOOL'S REACH A CERTAIN LEVEL OF YOU KNOW CAPACITY, THEN. IT'S UP TO THE SCHOOL BOARD TO MAKE ANY ADJUSTMENTS TO RELIEVE, UM AND I LIKE TO SAY IT'S MOSTLY, UM, THAT'S SECONDARY. I MEAN, IT'S FROM A PROGRAM STANDPOINT. BALANCING ENROLLMENT IS CRITICAL AND IMPORTANT WHEN YOU HAVE SCHOOLS THAT ARE, YOU KNOW OVERCAPACITY, AND THEN YOU HAVE OTHER SCHOOLS THAT ARE UNDER CAPACITY. UM SCHOOL SYSTEMS, YOU KNOW OF OUR SIZE. WE'RE BEST. WHEN ENROLLMENT IS BALANCED THROUGHOUT THE HISTORY, IT MAY BE SO OFTEN WHEN THOSE THINGS GET OUT OF WHACK. I'M SCHOOLS SYSTEMS, YOU KNOW, HAVE TO, YOU KNOW, TAKE A STEP TO ADDRESS THOSE NEEDS. BUT AS FAR AS, UM. INPUT WE DO NOT GET INTO, UM DETERMINING WHERE DEVELOPMENT OCCURS, UM. YOU KNOW THE COUNTY DEVELOPED THE, UM CREATED ITS DEVELOPMENT ENVELOPE AND MOST OF THE GROWTH THAT WE SEE IS OCCURRING WITHIN THAT DEVELOPMENT ENVELOPE. AND THAT'S JUST, UM THE RESULTS. OF THE PLANNING EFFORTS OF THE COUNTY, SO HE'S DOING EXACTLY, UM YOU KNOW WHAT THEY. INTENDED IT FOR INTENT IMPORTANT TO DO. UM SO NOW IT'S OBVIOUS TO US TO KIND OF BALANCE TO ADDRESS. UM, YOU KNOW THAT GROWTH, UM AND SEE HOW WE CAN DELIVER PROGRAMS BEST. THE SCHOOLS. MOVING FORWARD. UM. IT IS REALLY CRITICAL FOR THE COUNTY OFFICES. TO ADHERE. TO ADHERE VERY STRICTLY TO THOSE GUIDELINES. BECAUSE UM, THE SCHOOL SYSTEM AND THE BOARDS BOARD OF EDUCATION THE SUPERINTENDENT, YOUR OFFICES.

WE HAVE NOTHING. SAY ABOUT. WHAT IS GOING ON IN REGARD TO LANDING AND ZONING. UM WE DO AS RESIDENTS AND CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTY SO IT'S IMPORTANT THAT. UM THE COMMUNITY COMMUNICATE WITH US WITH THE SCHOOL SYSTEM AND WITH THE BOARD, BUT IT'S EQUALLY AS IMPORTANT FOR THEM.

TO COMMUNICATE THESE CONCERNS WITH THE COUNTY OFFICERS. UM. THE OTHER THING IS WE'VE WE'VE BEEN GETTING. SO MANY EMAILS. UM. AS I'M SURE EVERYONE HAS THAT. WITH US RIGHT NOW. BUT, UM. SOME OF THE EMAIL COMMUNICATES THAT ARE COMING FROM THE PUBLIC. ARE SAYING, WELL, WE JUST NEED TO BUILD ANOTHER MIDDLE SCHOOLER. WE JUST NEED TO BUILD THIS. UM.

THEY WANT MORE SCHOOLS. WHAT IS STATES PERSPECTIVE. ON PUTTING IN NEW BRICK AND MORTAR WITHOUT BALANCING ENROLLMENT. THE FIRST THING, THE STATE UM UM WOULD REQUIRE. SYSTEM TO DO PRIOR TO

[03:15:09]

FUNDING THE CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW SCHOOL IS TO LOOK AT BALANCING ENROLLMENT. UM SO IF WE HAVE, UM YOU KNOW, AVAILABLE SEATS AND, UM JASON SCHOOL ATTENDANCE AREAS. TO AN AREA OF GROWTH THEY WOULD EXPECT FOR US TO, UM, YOU KNOW, MAKE THAT ADJUSTMENT BEFORE WE WOULD COME TO THEM WITH ANY REQUEST FOR FUNDING FOR NEW SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION. UM, SO WE WOULD NOT AND YOU KNOW IN THE PAST, LET'S GET STATE WOULD NOT APPROVE ANY FUNDING. IF YOU DID HAVE A AVAILABLE SEATS. AND, UM, YOU KNOW, ADJACENT JOINING, UM. TENNIS AREA, UM, SO THEY WOULD LOOK FOR US TO DO WHAT WE'RE DOING NOW FIRST AND THEN SHOW EVIDENCE THAT AFTER, UM WE DID BALANCE TO THE BEST OF OUR ABILITY. IF THERE IS, UH YOU KNOW, GROWTH. THAT'S BEING PROJECTED OR IF THERE WAS SOME, UM, AREAS THAT WE COULD NOT ADDRESS. UM THEN WE WOULD SAY, WELL, WE NEED WE NEED ANOTHER SCHOOL. AND THEN WE WOULD START THOSE DISCUSSIONS WITH THEM. UM BUT NEW CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS KNOW BY TIME YOU GO THROUGH THAT PROCESS, SOME OF 34, DEPENDING ON FIVE YEARS OUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE AVAILABLE MONEY FROM LOCAL GOVERNMENT AND THE STATE. AND ALSO SORT OF SEEN PROJECT STARTED ARE CURRENTLY ON THE ON THE BOARDS.

I THOUGHT THAT MIGHT BE YOUR ANSWER, OKAY? FIRST I'D ALSO LIKE TO SAY THAT I APPRECIATE VERY MUCH THE WORK THAT THE COMMITTEE IS DOING. TO, UM, GO THROUGH THIS BALANCING.

ENROLLMENT PROCESS AFTER COVID. AND YOU KNOW THE SWARM CAN'T CALL THEM LOCUSTS BECAUSE THEY'RE CASSETTE CICADAS, BUT WHAT NEXT? BUT I DO APPRECIATE THE THOROUGHNESS AND THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL THAT YOU AND YOUR STAFF. AND ALL OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE WORKING ON THIS COMMITTEE. HAVE INVESTED. IN TIME AND EFFORT TO MAKE. THE BEST DECISIONS POSSIBLE FOR OUR STUDENTS. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. DR HAROLD. UH I PUT MY HAND DOWN, BUT I GUESS I'LL SAY SOMETHING, YOU KNOW. THANK YOU, BOY. UH, THE ELABORATION AND JUST THE CLARITY. I DON'T THINK I REALIZED THAT FULLY, UH, PORN? L, UM BECAUSE IT SEEMS LIKE. IT'S LIKE A BIT OF A DOESN'T SEEM LIKE, YOU KNOW, HISTORY HAS SHOWN THAT THIS IS THIS IS A THIS IS A CYCLE. BALANCING ENROLLMENT. RIGHT OF REDISH THING. AND THE PUBLIC IS. SEEMINGLY YOU KNOW, VERY VOCALLY TIRED OF IT, PARTICULARLY FAMILIES WHO HAVE BEEN THROUGH THIS MULTIPLE TIME. UM AND I GUESS THE QUESTION WOULD BE. AS ONE, UM, OF THE PUBLIC COMMENTS TONIGHT.

AT LEAST ONE MENTIONED. LET'S REALLY FIX THE PROBLEM. UH, AND. UM GO AFTER THE FUNDING AND BUILD ADDITIONAL SCHOOLS. UM. I KNOW YOU DON'T HAVE THE ANSWER TO THIS, BUT I'M WONDERING HOW.

I WANT. I WONDER HOW WE BREAK THAT'S LIKE, HOW DO WE CHANGE? UH THE CYCLE OF. BALANCING ENROLLMENT TO APPEASE, YOU KNOW TO BE THE FIRST STEP. UM. TOWARD, YOU KNOW, UM YEAH.

YEAH. HAVING HAVING SCHOOLS THAT CAN MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR KIDS. UM HOW DO WE SHIFT THAT PARADIGM? WELL, I WOULD LIKE I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND THE BOARD AND I SEE MR MORIN'S HAND IS UP AND I WILL DEFER TO HIM AFTER I MAKE THIS COMMENT. SO, UM. WHEN WE PLANNED, UM BEFORE CORNELL BROWN CAME ON BOARD. IT WAS ALREADY SOMETHING THAT WAS IN THE WORKS. UM WHEN WE PLAN TO BUILD THE RED PUMP. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. THERE WAS A SISTER SCHOOL, UM ON SHUCKS ROAD THAT WAS TO BE NAMED CAMPUS HILL ELEMENTARY, AND IT WAS TO BE A. ROUGHLY 700 SEAT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. UM THAT WAS TO ADDRESS. UM YOU KNOW, A PLANNED GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT. UM BUT THEN, UNFORTUNATELY ON THE RECESSION, UM YOU KNOW, CAME UPON US AND YOU KNOW THERE WAS A FISCAL CRISIS AND. AT THE FACILITY WAS PUT ON HOLD BECAUSE OF FISCAL REASONS. I'M NOT SAYING THAT WE

[03:20:10]

WOULD NOT BE HERE TODAY. IF WE DID NOT IF WE MOVE FORWARD WITH WOULD, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT. BECAUSE WE WOULD HAVE ALREADY ADDRESSED SOME OF OUR, YOU KNOW, PLAYING GROWTH.

I'M IN THE YOU KNOW, BEL AIR AREA. WHEN WE OPENED, YOU KNOW JOHN ARCHER, NOT JOHN ARCHER.

WHEN WE OPENED RED PUMP AND CAMPUS HILLS. WE ALSO, UM YOU KNOW, BUT, UH, DEERFIELD ELEMENTARY ONLINE WITH ADDITIONAL SEATS, SO THERE ARE A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT WE WERE DOING. UM YOU KNOW, THAT WAS FOCUSED ON ADDRESSING THE GROWTH. I'M EDGEWOOD, UM, WAS BUILT TO A LARGER CAPACITY ALL FUNDED BY THE COUNTY. THE STATE DID NOT SUPPORT THE ADDITIONAL SEATS THAT WERE PLANNED IN AND THE SAME THING. UM AT BEL AIR HIGH SCHOOL. SO WE DID BUILDING SOME ADDITIONAL SEATS AT BELLA HIGH TO DEAL WITH CAPACITY, BUT WE HAVEN'T GOTTEN TO PUT THE EXCEPTION OF THE PATERSON MILL MIDDLE HIGH. AND THE HABIT GRAZE MIDDLE HIGH. YOU KNOW, WE HAVEN'T GOTTEN TO ANY OF OUR MIDDLE SCHOOLS, SO WE DO HAVE SOME, UM, DISCUSSIONS AND THEN PLANS TO MAKE AND WITH THIS, UM, DATA THAT WE'RE GOING TO GET AND WITH THE INFORMATION THAT WE'RE GOING TO GET FROM THE STATE. WE WILL BE LOOKING AT OUR CAPITAL PLAN TO SEE YOU KNOW, WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO TO NOT ONLY ADDRESS PROGRAM ENVIRONMENT BUT ALSO TO ADDRESS MANY CAPACITY? ISSUES THAT ARE STILL UM, YOU KNOW BEING EXPECTED. SO MR MORTON, HE PROBABLY CAN JUMP IN. AND, UM, YOU KNOW, PROVIDE SOME INFORMATION I HAVEN'T PROVIDED TO THE BOARD. ALL I WANTED TO SHARE THIS IS CHRIS MORTON, SUPERVISOR. A VILLAGE MANAGEMENT UH, AND I ACTUALLY GOT POSITIVE BELLS. OF FROM A COUPLE FOLKS. THAT'S THE FIRST.

THE SECOND STAFF, BUT THE FIRST ONE LAST WEEK. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I SHARED AND, YOU KNOW. WE PRESENTED THIS TO THE BOARD IS, YOU KNOW THAT THE CAPITAL PROGRAM IS IN PRISON, INSTANTLY DOTTED WITH THE OPERATING PROGRAM AND, YOU KNOW. AS YOU ALL KNOW, WE'RE VERY FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE. AND IT WASN'T THAT LONG AGO THAT WE WERE, UH. TRYING TO MAKE ENDS MEET ON THE OPERATING SIDE. YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU INTRODUCE A NEW FACILITY, AND I'M NOT SAYING THAT YOU DON'T WANT TO WHEN IT WHEN THE NEED ARISES. WE'LL CERTAINLY. YOU WANT TO TRY AND UTILIZE ALL OF, UH, YOUR RESOURCES. YOU REACH THAT POINT, BECAUSE WHEN YOU BUILD IT THIS FALL YOU ARE ADDING ALL NEW STAFF. OH AND YOU'RE PAYING FOR THE OPERATING AND MAINTENANCE.

OF THAT NEW FACILITY, WHICH IS MOSTLY FUNDED. UM UH, YOU KNOW, BY THE COUNTY AND BY COUNTY TAXPAYERS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, COMMENTS. I DON'T CARE ANY HANDS UP GOING OUT. I THINK OPPORTUNITY AND WE'RE ALWAYS AVAILABLE. UH YOU KNOW, TO COME BACK TO THE BOARD AND WE WILL BE OBVIOUSLY, UM, TO PROVIDED THERE'S NO UPDATE, UM AND AS ALWAYS, ANY QUESTIONS CAN BE ADVANCED TO US AND, YOU KNOW, WE'LL PROVIDE, UM, THE ANSWERS. TO THOSE QUESTIONS, SO

[I. Decision on Proposed FY2022 Operating Budget, Ms. Deborah Judd, Assistant Superintendent of Business Services, Mr. Eric Clark, Director of Budget and Ms. Mary Edmunds, Budget Analyst]

THANK YOU. THANK YOU. NEXT ITEM ON THE AGENDA IS AN ACTION ITEM. IT'S THE DECISION ON THE PROPOSED FISCAL YEAR 2022 OPERATING BUDGET. THIS JET. YES GOOD EVENING, PRESIDENT ROBINSON, VICE PRESIDENT GAUTIER BOARD MEMBERS. DR BOLSON, WE'RE HERE THIS EVENING TO ASK FOR THE BOARD'S APPROVAL FOR THE FY 22. OPERATING BUDGET. UM THE UNRESTRICTED BUDGET, THE RESTRICTED BUDGET, THE CAPITAL BUDGET AND THE FOOD NUTRITION BUDGET. AS YOU ARE AWARE THE COUNTY DID FULLY FUND OUR OPERATING REQUESTS, SO WE'RE VERY APPRECIATIVE OF THAT. WE DO HAVE SOME AMENDMENTS TO REVIEW WITH YOU THIS EVENING AND ASK FOR YOUR APPROVAL ON.

PERFECT. OKAY. GOOD EVENING. PRESIDENT ROBINSON, VICE PRESIDENT GO TO BOARD MEMBERS.

[03:25:04]

THE PLEASURE TO BE WITH YOU THIS EVENING. UM, AS MISJUDGE SAID, I'M GOING TO WALK YOU THROUGH THE UNRESTRICTED BUDGET. AND THE RESTRICTED BUDGET. GO TO THE NEXT AND THERE WE GO. SO THIS IS WHAT THE BOARD OF EDUCATION APPROVED IN JANUARY, UM IN YOUR PROPOSED BUDGET TO GO TO HARFORD COUNTY, AS MISJUDGE SAID. UM HARPER COUNTY FULLY FUNDED US FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW. WE'D CERTAINLY LIKE TO THANK MR GLASSMAN AND HIS STAFF AND ALSO THE COUNTY COUNCIL FOR APPROVING HIS, UM, BUDGET ALLOCATION. ONE NOTE ON THIS SLIDE BEFORE WE MOVE ON MARYLAND STATE REVENUE WE USUALLY SEE SOME CHANGES BETWEEN JANUARY'S ALLOCATION AND THE ALLOCATION THAT GETS RELEASED IN JUNE. THIS YEAR, THE OUT THE TOTAL ALLOCATION WAS EXACTLY THE SAME. SO WE WILL NOT BE REQUESTING ANY AMENDMENT TO AMEND THE FUNDING FROM MARYLAND STATE, THE FEDERAL AND OTHER ALSO. UM, STAY THE SAME FROM YOUR PROPOSED BUDGET, AND THEN THE FUND BALANCE AGAIN REMAINS THE SAME. SO REALLY NOTHING'S CHANGED, UM, FROM A REVENUE STANDPOINT. FROM JANUARY TO, UH, THIS STATE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. THIS IS AGAIN IS WHAT YOU APPROVE. UM, THE INCREASE OF 16.2 MILLION THAT WE SENT OVER TO THE COUNTY. UM TO SMALL CHANGES ON THIS THAT I'LL GO THROUGH IN THE NEXT SLIDE FOR THE AMENDMENT, BUT FOR THE MOST PART ALL OF THESE, UM. THESE PROGRAMS AND THESE FUNDING, UH, INITIATIVES THAT YOU APPROVED, UM, TO BE SENT OVER TO THE COUNTY FOR FUNDING REMAIN IN THE BUDGET. UM. THESE ARE THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS THAT MISS JUDD TALKED ABOUT. THESE ARE IN THE OPERATING OR THE UNRESTRICTED BUDGET. SO. WHAT HAPPENS IS WHEN ONCE WE SEND THE BUDGET OVER THAT YOU PROPOSED IN JANUARY, UM THE BUDGET OFFICE WORKED WITH. LOT OF DIFFERENT HARFORD COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOL STAFF, UM TO MAKE SMALL CHANGES TO INCLUDE SOME FTSE'S THAT MAY BE NEEDED IN THE COMING SCHOOL YEAR. UM.

THOSE TYPES OF THANK THIS YEAR WE HAVE 15. AMENDMENTS UM AND I'M JUST GONNA WALK THROUGH BRIEFLY. THOSE AMENDMENTS WITH YOU, AND THEN AFTER WE GET THROUGH THE OTHER THREE BUDGETS. RESTRICTED. NUTRITION AND CAPITAL. WE CAN COME BACK TO THESE IF YOU NEED SOME MORE EXPLANATION. THE FIRST ONE IS THE ADJUSTMENT TO THE PRE K GRANT. THIS WAS ONE OF THE CHANGES FROM YOUR ORIGINAL PROPOSED BUDGET FROM JANUARY. UM WE WERE FORTUNATE THAT THE STATE OF MARYLAND ALLOWED US TO KEEP SEVEN POSITIONS ON THE PRESCHOOL EXPANSION GRANT. SO SINCE THEY GAVE US THAT FUNDING FOR FY 22 WE REMOVED THAT FROM, UH, THE OPERATING SO THAT WAS THE 366,000 ALMOST 367. I'M SORRY, $366,000. UM. THE SECOND AMENDMENT WERE REQUESTING FOR YOUR APPROVAL TONIGHT WOULD BE THE ADDITION OF THE P TECH TEACHER SPECIALIST AT, UH, AT THAT HIGH SCHOOL. THAT'S ONE POSITION. AND AS YOU CAN SEE THE COSTS, THEY ARE ALMOST 114,000. THE THIRD AMENDMENT. WE WOULD REQUEST FOR APPROVAL TONIGHT WOULD BE THE. ADDITION OF AN ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT, UH. BACK AT OLD ED. AND THAT'S GOING TO SUPPORT COUNSELING AT ALL, TED AND THAT WILL ALSO BE SWAN CREEK. UM SO WITH WITH THE ADDITIONAL ENROLLMENT THERE WITH THE SWAN CREEK, UM THAT'S ONE POSITION WE WOULD BE REQUESTING. NUMBER FOUR, IS AN ADMINISTRATIVE SPECIALIST AT PATTERSON MILL MIDDLE IN HIGH SCHOOL. THIS WOULD BE A BOOKKEEPER AT PATTERSON MILL MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL. UM AT ONE POINT OUT AT THE AND YOU CAN SEE THE COST THERE, 63,400. NUMBER FIVE IS THE ADDITION OF CONCLUSION. HELPERS UM WE'RE PROJECTING THAT THE DEMAND IS GOING TO BE MORE FOR INCLUSION HELPERS IN FY 22, THEN WE CURRENTLY HAVE BUDGETED. SO WE'RE REQUESTING 10 FPS AT A COST OF $370,000. AMENDMENT NUMBER SIX IS THE ADDITION OF THE TEACHER ACADEMY OF MARYLAND SPECIALIST AT HARFORD TECH.

THAT'S A ONE POINT OUT POSITION AT A COST OF $82,000. UM NUMBER SEVEN WAS A REQUEST FROM ED SERVICES TO ADD SECONDARY TEACHERS FOR AT BEL AIR MIDDLE AND WANT TO HAVE IT A GRACE.

HI. THAT'S FIVE, UH, TEACHING POSITIONS AT A COST OF 399,000. NUMBER EIGHT IS ADDITIONAL STRIVE PAIR EDUCATORS BASED ON PROJECTED STUDENT COUNT WHAT WE KNOW NOW THAT WE DIDN'T NECESSARILY KNOW IN JANUARY. WE'RE LOOKING AT 10 PAIR OF POSITIONS AT A COST OF $422,000. THE STRATEGIC INITIATIVES ASSISTANT. THIS WOULD BE AN ASSISTANT TO, UM,

[03:30:02]

STRATEGIC INITIATIVES DIRECTOR. THAT'S AT ONE POINT OH, POSITION AT $63,000. SPECIAL ELEMENTARY SPECIAL AREA TEACHERS. THIS IS AMENDMENT NUMBER 10. AGAIN THIS IS FROM ED SERVICES, AND THESE ARE ESTIMATES IN ART, MUSIC THE LIBRARY AND GET THE TALENTED WOULD BE A TOTAL OF SEVEN FTE S AT 559,000. AMENDMENT NUMBER 11 IS THAT. ONE THEY'RE EDUCATOR TO SUPPORT THE JUDY JUDY CENTER AT BOTH CROSS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, UM THROUGH A RESTRICTED PROGRAM WE ARE ADDING OR EXPANDING THE JUDY CENTER FROM. NOT FROM MAGNOLIA, BUT IN ADDITION TO MANUALLY TO ALSO HAULS CROSSROADS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. THAT'S A ONE F D A. OR AT A COST OF 42,000. AMENDMENT NUMBER 12, AND IT IS AN INCREASE IN NON PUBLIC TUITION.

UM, WE'RE PROJECTING A, UH, SLIGHT INCREASE TO THAT FOR NEXT YEAR AND WE REQUESTING $300,000. AND THEN 13. 14 AND 15 ARE THE SOURCES OF ALL OF THESE EDITIONS. IF YOU LOOK AT AMENDMENT NUMBER ONE, WHERE THERE'S A NEGATIVE 366,000 IF WE LOOK AT 13, 14 AND 15. WE'RE LOOKING AT REDUCING CLERICAL SALARIES. WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF A SURPLUS THERE, $63,000.

THE SECOND CHANGE THAT I SAID FROM YOUR ORIGINAL PROPOSED BUDGET IN JANUARY, WE HAD ASKED FOR $800,000 IN, UH, SUMMER SCHOOL LEARNING. WE ARE GOING TO BE RECEIVING SOME RESTRICTED GRANTS THAT ARE SPECIFICALLY SET UP FOR SUMMER SCHOOL, SO WE WANTED TO REDUCE THAT LINE BY 400,000 TO COVER SOME OF THESE POSITIONS. AND THEN AMENDMENT NUMBER, 15 WOULD BE A REDUCTION TO OUR HEALTH CARE BUDGET, AND THAT IS BECAUSE OF THE MEDICARE ADVANTAGE SAVINGS THAT WE'RE REALIZING THAT'S $1.6 MILLION. IT'S A TOTAL OF 31 F B. E S. AND AS YOU CAN SEE IT, IT DOES NOT INCREASE OR DECREASE THE BUDGET REQUEST. UM IT'S A BUDGET NEUTRAL FROM THAT PERSPECTIVE. NEXT SLIDE, MISS GOD. SO THE RESTRICTED BUDGET. UM. AS YOU ALL KNOW, WE RECEIVED RESTRICTED FUNDS FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, THE STATE OF MARYLAND AND THEN ALSO SOME MISCELLANEOUS SOURCES. UM. WE REALLY ARE VERY LITTLE CHANGES IN TERMS OF OUR TRADITIONAL ARE NORMAL FEDERAL GRANTS THAT WE GET TITLE ONE TITLE TO TITLE THREE ARE SPECIAL, ED BRANDT. AND ALSO, STATE GRANTS WERE NOT REALLY PROTECTING MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE THERE. IF YOU LOOK AT THAT FIRST ONE TO DO, UH 2ND AND 3RD LINE CORONA CORONAVIRUS RELIEF FUNDS. EXCUSE ME. UM, THAT'S WHERE WE'RE REALLY GOING TO SEE AN INFLUX OF FUNDING FOR NOT ONLY CURRENT YEAR FY 21 BUT ALSO FY 22, SO WE'RE LOOKING AT AN INCREASE OF ALMOST $50 MILLION IN F BY 22. WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED THOSE APPLICATIONS YET FROM MARYLAND STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION. WE'VE BEEN HAVING SOME INTERNAL DISCUSSIONS ON WHAT WE BELIEVE WILL BE ALLOWABLE, UM, EXPENDITURES FOR THOSE FUNDS. BUT WE WILL CERTAINLY KEEP YOU POSTED AND IN THE LOOP AS WE WORK THROUGH THAT PROCESS. AND THE LAST THING BEFORE I TURN IT OVER TO MS JOB. THIS IS JUST A BREAKDOWN OF THE POSITIONS SO. THE REAL, UH, SPEAK COLUMN.

HERE IS A LOOK AT THE CHANGE FROM BY 21 TO FY 22 SO IN THE UNRESTRICTED BUDGET, WE'RE REQUESTING AN INCREASE OF. ALMOST 100 POSITIONS, 99.6 AND THEN IN THE RESTRICTED BUDGET, WE'RE REQUESTING AN INCREASE OF 77.5 FOR A TOTAL OF 177. MANY OF THOSE IN THE RESTRICTED BUDGET ARE A RESULT OF. SOME CORONAVIRUS RELIEF FUNDS THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED IN THE CURRENT YEAR. AND THEN THE FOOD AND NUTRITION. WE DON'T PROJECT ANY ADDITIONAL OR REDUCTION OF FB EAT. AND MISS JUDD IF YOU WANT TO GO THROUGH THE FOOD, NUTRITION, SUMMARY AND CAPITAL.

SURE NORMALLY WITH OUR FOOD, NUTRITION BUDGET, WE HAVE VERY SLIGHT INCREASES THAT WE TALK ABOUT YOUR EVERY YEAR, NORMALLY HAVING TO DEAL WITH COST OF BUSINESS INCREASES, WHETHER THAT SALARIES OR CONTRACTS GOING UP, BUT YOU KNOW WE HAVE IN PLACE. WITH THE EXTENSION OF THE WAIVERS INTO NEXT YEAR. ACTUALLY THROUGH NEXT YEAR. WE ARE ANTICIPATING A SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN THE REIMBURSEMENT OF OUR MEALS BECAUSE WE ANTICIPATE MORE STUDENTS PARTICIPATING. IN THE FOOD NUTRITION PROGRAM SO YOU CAN SEE THE BUDGET FOR THE CURRENT YEAR'S ABOUT 18.6 MILLION AND THE BUDGET FOR FY 22 IS ABOUT 23.3 MILLION. SO THESE ARE ESTIMATES BASED ON. OVERALL PARTICIPATION AS WELL AS WHAT WE PROJECT WILL BE AN INCREASE

[03:35:06]

FOR NEXT YEAR AND WILL CERTAINLY BE REVISITING THIS AND MONITORING THE REVENUE COMING IN AND THE EXPENSES GOING OUT TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS UM. BUDGET DOES BREAK EVEN BECAUSE THAT IS THE GOAL AND YOU CAN SEE IN THE EXPENSE AREA AGAIN. UM. SOME CHANGE RELATED TO SALARY PACKAGE SUPPLIES AND MATERIALS GOING UP A LITTLE BIT MORE OF AN INVESTMENT IN EQUIPMENT TO KEEP OUR EQUIPMENT FUNCTIONING. OTHER CHARGES IS THE INCREASE IN HEALTH INSURANCE AND BENEFITS AS WELL. SO. 4.6 MILLION INCREASE, BUT IT'S A BALANCED BUDGET AT $23.3 MILLION. WITH OUR CAPITAL BUDGET. THIS IS OUR FOURTH AND FINAL BUDGET. WE'RE ASKING FOR APPROVAL ON TONIGHT. YOU CAN SEE THROUGH THE COLUMNS ON THIS SPREADSHEET. WE HAVE, UM STATE FUNDING THREE PROJECTS TOTALING $12.7 MILLION. THEN HARFORD COUNTY FUNDING FOR VARIOUS PROJECTS LISTED 23.4 MILLION. WE ALSO HAVE A COLUMN. UH. TRANSFERS NEXT TO ZERO. AND THIS IS WHERE WE'RE ACTUALLY REMOVING MONEY FROM EXISTING PROJECTS AND MOVING THEM INTO BROAD CATEGORIES THAT WE ESTABLISHED LAST YEAR. LAST YEAR, TOTALING $850,000. WE'RE MOVING FUNDS INTO SPECIAL AT FACILITY IMPROVEMENTS WHERE WE REGULARLY NEED ADDITIONAL FUNDING AS WE ENHANCE THOSE PROGRAMS AND MAJOR H BACK REPAIRS AGAIN. ANOTHER, UM.

CATEGORY WHERE WE DO HAVE NEEDS, UM. AND NEVER ENOUGH FUNDING. SO WE'RE MOVING 140,000 INTO THAT, THEN WE ALSO ARE PROPOSING A YEAR IN TRANSFER. WE'VE ACTUALLY WORKED WITH THE COUNTY ON THIS TO MAKE IT EFFECTIVE. JULY ONE, SO AS WE DISCUSSED, UM. LAST MONTH REGARDING THE PROJECTION. FOR FY 21 WITH OUR FUND BALANCE. WE WANTED TO MOVE SOME OF OUR PROJECTED FUND BALANCE OVER TO CAPITOL TO USE. UM. AS NEEDED. THOSE FUNDS WOULD SIT IN THESE PARTICULAR CAPITAL ACCOUNTS. UM $17 MILLION TOTAL 1.7 MILLION FOR A TECHNOLOGY REFRESH $10 MILLION FOR A NEW E R P SYSTEM THAT IS AN ESTIMATE ONLY WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF LOOKING AT THOSE SYSTEMS NOW. SO AGAIN. 10 MILLION IS AN ESTIMATE VEHICLES AND EQUIPMENT 2.85 MILLION.1.6 FOR PAVING CAREER AND TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION EQUIPMENT. REFRESH 450,000 PLAYGROUND, A CRYPT EQUIPMENT 200,000 AND FLOOR COVERING REPLACEMENT TO 50. SO A LOT OF THOSE PARTICULAR LINE ITEMS AGAIN. WE DON'T. TYPICALLY SAFES FUNDING IN THOSE AREAS, BUT WE DO HAVE NEEDS AND ALL OF THOSE AREAS SO WE'RE PROPOSING TO TRANSFER SOME OF THAT FUND BALANCE. UH.

THAT IS A RESULT THIS YEAR OF OUR EXCESS REVENUES AND REDUCED EXPENDITURES. TO OUR TOTAL LOCAL PROPOSED FUNDING AND TRANSFERS. $23.4 MILLION THE STATE. AND LOCAL PROPOSED FUNDING AND TRANSFERS. $53.1 MILLION. AT THIS POINT, WE'RE HAPPY TO TAKE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT ANY PARTICULAR. SLIDE OR IN GENERAL QUESTIONS THAT SHE MAY HAVE. WAS STARTING DR BAUER HIS HAND AND THEN WE'LL GO TO MR REGARDING. THANK YOU SO. SO MUCH IN ON SOME SPECIFIC QUESTION ON THE UH, UNRESTRICTED BUDGET. DO WE TRACK? UM. KIND OF WHICH ITEMS ARE IN THE BUDGET ARE EXPECTED TO BE RECURRING. AND WHICH ARE. MORE OF ONE TIME EXPENSES OR ONE TIME BOOSTS. WE DO AND THOSE ARE CONVERSATIONS WE HAVE ON A REGULAR BASIS, BECAUSE AS YOU. POINT OUT THE ONE TIME COSTS ARE. THE BIGGEST FOCUS OF OUR RESTRICTED MONEY BECAUSE AGAIN WHEN THOSE FUNDS ARE GONE, THEY'RE GONE. ANY RECURRING COSTS PUT INTO A RESTRICTED BUDGET. UM. WE WILL HAVE TO EITHER AND THE SPENDING ON THAT AT THE END OF THE FUNDS OR FIND A PLACE IN THE OPERATING BUDGET FOR THOSE COSTS, SO WE DO KEEP TRACK OF ALL OF THAT VERY CLOSELY AND WHEN WE'RE MAKING DECISIONS ON WHAT TO INCLUDE IN THOSE GRANTS. WE'D. ABSOLUTELY DISCUSS WHETHER IT'S GOING TO BE A ONE TIME COST OR RECURRING COST. OKAY, SO TO CLARIFY IN THE UNRESTRICTED BUDGET, I'M LOOKING AT THE AMENDMENTS ON SLIDE FIVE. AND I'M WONDERING. SOME OF THESE TO ME SEEM TO SHIFT MONEY FROM. ONE TIME

[03:40:11]

EXPENSES INTO RECURRING EXPENSES. IS THAT ACCURATE? THESE AMENDMENTS. DO YOU HAVE A PARTICULAR. EXAMPLE MOST OF THESE ARE POSITIONS SO THOSE WOULD BE RECURRING POSITIONS.

IT'S ADDING A BUNCH OF POSITIONS. THE TOP ITEM. WAS BASICALLY. GRANT MONEY THAT'S NO LONGER ENDING. IS THIS JUST ONE YEARS EXTENSION OF THAT GRANT MONEY? WE HAD INCLUDED THIS MONEY IN THE OPERATING BUDGET THAT YOU APPROVED BACK IN JANUARY AS IN THE END OF A GRANT. MOVE INTO THE OPERATING BUDGET, WHICH WOULD BE THE NORMAL PATH. BUT AS WE GOT INTO THE SPRING AND THE RECONCILIATION, IT WAS DETERMINED THAT WE WOULD HAVE THE GRANT FUNDS SO WE WERE ABLE TO MOVE IT BACK AND TAKE OFF THE OPERATING BUDGET FOR FY 22.

MHM. AND THEN THINGS LIKE, UM ADAM NUMBER 14. AGAIN. THERE'S A GRAND. UM NUMBER 15. I GUESS WE'VE TALKED ABOUT HEALTH CARE SAVINGS. SO UM, NUMBER 14. WE HAD $800,000 IN THE OPERATING BUDGET FOR FY 22 RELATED TO SUMMER LEARNING BECAUSE WE REALIZED WE NEEDED. TO CONTINUE TO INVEST IN OUR SUMMER LEARNING, UM AS AN ONGOING UH, INITIATIVE. WITH THE FUNDS THAT WERE RECEIVING THE GRANT FUNDS THAT WERE RECEIVING THERE ARE VERY SPECIFIC GUIDELINES ON HOW WE SPEND SOME OF THAT MONEY AND. GOOD CHUNK IS DEDICATED TO SOME ARE LEARNING AND REMEDIATION FOR STUDENTS SO BECAUSE WE HAVE ALL OF THIS MONEY IN THE GRANTS WE WERE ABLE TO REDUCE THE REQUEST IN THIS BUDGET. BY $400,000 IN ORDER TO FUND SOME OF THOSE POSITIONS ABOVE AND MOST LIKELY WE WOULD COME BACK TO THE BOARD IN A SUBSEQUENT BUDGET YEAR TO REQUEST THAT 400,000 OR SOME PORTION TO PUT IT IN THE BUDGET AT THAT TIME. DOES THAT HELP WITH THAT ONE? YES IT DOES. OKAY AND THEN THE HEALTHCARE AGAIN IS, UM. ERIC CLARK MENTIONED WE SWITCH TO THE MEDICARE ADVANTAGE PLAN. AS OF JANUARY 1ST FOR OUR MEDICARE ELIGIBLE RETIREES, SO THAT IS GENERATING SAVINGS ANTICIPATED SAVINGS. OR NEXT YEAR, SO WE'RE REDUCING THAT HEALTH CARE LINE TO HELP AGAIN COVER THE COSTS THAT ARE LISTED IN THESE AMENDMENTS. THANK YOU. NO FURTHER QUESTIONS AT THIS TIME. WAS RECORDING. PRESIDENT ROBINSON, UM AGAIN. TWO QUESTIONS, MISS JUDD. CAN YOU TELL ME OF ANY OF OUR TELL US IF ANY OF THOSE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS POSITIONS ARE ANY OF THOSE ARE NEWLY CREATED POSITIONS. OKAY, WE'LL GO DOWN THE LIST. THE. JOPPATOWNE AND ERIC JUMP IN AND INDEED AND IN IT, AND MAYBE I CAN. WHAT? I'M.

I MEAN, A BRAND NEW POSITION TO HCPS. OKAY? YES, I UNDERSTAND. I JUST ADDED STAFF. CORRECT.

OKAY, SO NUMBER. AT MY LINE ITEMS HERE THE BOOKKEEPER POSITION, WHICH IS AMENDMENT NUMBER FOUR. UM THAT IS A NEW POSITION FOR PATTERSON MILL. THAT IS SOMETHING THAT. WE HAVE BEEN DISCUSSING FOR SEVERAL YEARS. THE, UM BOOKKEEPING NEEDS THE MONEY COLLECTED THE AMOUNT OF MONEY. EXCUSE ME ONE SECOND. THAT. THE MONEY COLLECTED AT OUR HIGH SCHOOLS IS INCREASING. BY THE YEAR AND PATTERSON MILL IS OUR, UM, SCHOOL WITH THE MOST REVENUE COLLECTED, SO WE HAVE DETERMINED THAT WE WOULD ADD A BOOKKEEPING POSITION. AT THAT SCHOOL, AND AS YOU CAN SEE ONLINE NUMBER 13. WE HAD SOME. CLERICAL SALARIES SURPLUS SITTING IN A LINE ITEM, PROBABLY FROM TURNOVER AND DIFFERENT THINGS THAT HAVE HEARD THROUGH THE YEARS THAT WE'VE NOT REMOVED, SO WE'RE ABLE TO ADD THAT POSITION WITH THOSE FUNDS, SO THAT IS AN IMPOSITION. UM. THERE'S A NEW POSITION AT HARFORD TECH, THE SPECIALIST. AND THE ASSISTANT THE TAM SPECIALIST AS THE CURRENT POSITION THERE. THAT WE'RE RECOGNIZING FY 22. YEAH, THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT WAS GOING TO BE COVERED BY A GRANT IN FY 21 WHEN WE ORIGINALLY BUDGETED, BUT IT WAS NOT UM REALLY, UM. NUMBER NINE. THE

[03:45:10]

STRATEGIC INITIATIVES ASSISTANT RIGHT AND THE BOOKKEEPER. THE BOOKKEEPER. THE ADMIN SUPPORT.

I'M SORRY. THAT WAS PATERSON. MIDDLE, THE ADMIN SUPPORT AT ALL, ED. YES. SO THE STRATEGIC INITIATIVES A SYSTEM, THE OTHER ONES ARE PRETTY STRAIGHTFORWARD. THE STRATEGIC INITIATIVE POSITION ASSISTANT IS GOING TO BE A NEW POSITION. I KNOW YOU'VE EXPLAINED SOME OF THE OTHER POSITIONS. AND THAT WILL BE A NEW POSITION. I'M GOING. WHAT IS THAT POSITION? I'LL ANSWER THAT ONE. UM. SO THE POSITION THAT, UM. WELL I'LL GO BACK IN NAMES. THIS WILL MAKE IT CLEAR IS THE POSITION THAT ANDREW CASTLE HELD AND HE WAS DOING NORTHSTAR WORK WE USED TO CONSULTANT TO HEALTH CARE FOR SOME OF THE NORTH STAR WORK, BUT WE NEVER FILLED THAT POSITION. WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE WITH CONSULTING HELP IN THAT AREA, AND WE'LL USE GRANT FUNDS TO PAY FOR THAT, BUT THAT'S EXPECTING TO SUNSET OVER CERTAIN PERIOD OF TIME AND THEN THE STRATEGIC INITIATIVES. THE TITLE FOR IT WAS SORT OF RE RE TITLED IT. BUT THE REASON YOU DON'T SEE THE STRATEGIC INITIATIVE DIRECTOR YOU ONLY SEE THE ASSISTANT HERE. BECAUSE THE DIRECTOR F. D E IS THAT POSITION THAT, UH, THAT WAS FORMERLY HELD BY MR CASTLE. BUT WHAT WE ARE DOING WITH THAT POSITION THIS YEAR IS BECAUSE THAT LEGISLATURE PASSED THE BLUEPRINT. OR HEROIN, AND THERE'S AN EXPECTATION THAT WE HAVE AN IMPLEMENTATION LIAISON.

IN FACT, ONE OF THINGS WE HAVE TO DO IS IDENTIFIED. WE HAVE TO WORK WITH OUR KIND OF GOVERNANCE TO IDENTIFY LIAISON. AND SO WE HAVE AN FTE IN PLACE TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE SOMEONE BECAUSE WE'RE ABOUT TO. AND BAR. UH A NUMBER OF YEARS AS YOU'VE SEEN SOME OF THE BLUEPRINT LEGISLATION ALL THE IMPROVE ALL THE NEW INITIATIVES THAT NEED TO BE ROLLED OUT AS UH, TO COMPLY WITH THE BLUEPRINT. SO THAT POSITION. WILL BE SHIFT IN THE RESPONSIBILITIES IN THAT POSITION. AND WE'LL BE WORKING WITH THE COUNTY TO IDENTIFY THE PERSON FOR THAT, OR TO AT LEAST TO GET THEM TO SUPPORT. WE IDENTIFY BECAUSE THEY DON'T KNOW THAT THEY'RE PLANNING TO ADD AND YOU HAVE TO EASE IN THEIR BUDGET FOR IT. BUT WE DO REALIZE THAT THE BLUEPRINT IS AN IMMENSE JOB AND. UM SO WE BELIEVE THAT PERSON WILL NEED THEIR OWN ASSISTANT TO HELP MANAGE THIS BECAUSE IT'S GOING TO BE LOGISTICALLY VERY CHALLENGING. SO YOU SEE THE TITLE THERE, BUT THAT'S WHY YOU DON'T SEE THE OTHER POSITION THAT GOES WITH IT. IF THE ASSISTANT IS IN ADDITION TO OUR BUDGET. SO THE ASSISTANCE EDITION, BUT THERE IS NO DIRECTOR. THERE WAS THE DIRECTOR. WE'RE JUST REPURPOSING THE FTE THAT WE HAD. AND WHERE DOES THAT FALL UNDER IN THE ALIGNMENT OF HCPS.

RIGHT NOW. THAT REPORT. UM THAT REPORTS DIRECTLY TO ME. BECAUSE AND I THINK WITH THE STRATEGIC INITIATIVES AGAIN AS WE'RE LOOKING AT BLUEPRINT IS GOING TO CUT ACROSS EVERY INSTRUCTIONAL AND OPERATIONAL AREAS, SO IT WILL REMAIN A DIRECT REPORT TO ME. THE ASSISTANT WILL BE REPORTING INTO YOU. OH NO, NO. SORRY THE ASSISTANT WILL REPORT TO THE DIRECTOR. BUT THE DIRECTOR POSITION HERE TALKING ABOUT, UM, YEAH, THE ASSISTANT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THERAPIST. GOT IT NOW THAT IS, BUT I'M STILL NOT CLEAR. IS THERE A DIRECTOR WHO HAS THAT ROLE RIGHT NOW IN HCPS? NO, IT'S VACANT. WE'VE HAD TO BE VACANT. GOT IT? THAT'S I'M SORRY. I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE IT'S CLEAR SINCE MR CASSILLY ACCEPTED HIS NEW POSITION ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO NOW THAT'S THAT'S REMAINED VACANT. THANK YOU. SO THEY HELP YOU THAT THERE'S TWO BUT ONE'S BEEN IN THE BUDGET. THIS IS ADDED CORRECT. GOT IT UNDERSTOOD. UM. THE SECOND PART OF MY QUESTION IS AND I'M NOT SURE IF WE CAN ANSWER IT THIS EVENING. BUT FAR TO THIS CURRENT BOARD BEING UH, BECAUSE THEIR POSITIONS. THERE WAS SOME BUDGETING ISSUES WE HAD, I THINK, TWO YEARS BACK. AND WE HAD TO, UM, DO REALLY LOOK AT STAFFING. SO. WHERE ARE WE NOW? IN RELATION TO WHERE WE WERE THEN? JUST CURIOUS. ARE WE ALMOST BACK WHERE WE WERE AT THE POINT WHEN WE HAD TO MAKE THE SOME OF THOSE DECISIONS.

WE'RE NOT QUITE THERE YET, BUT I'D SAY WE CAN GET YOU AN ANSWER TO THAT, UM. PRETTY EASY OR WHAT BROUGHT OUR WAY. WE'RE ON OUR WAY. WE'VE MADE SOME PROGRESS. UM BUT WE'RE NOT QUITE THERE YET, DEBORAH. DO YOU HAVE MORE DETAIL IN A OR WANT TO DO THAT? WE CAN PROVIDE MORE DETAIL. I THINK WHAT I WOULD POINT OUT IS THAT WE MADE GREAT STRIDES THIS YEAR IN ADDING BACK. THE ASSISTANT PRINCIPALS. UM THAT WAS, YOU KNOW, A HUGE HIT TO OUR SCHOOLS.

AND UM, I THINK WE'VE DONE A GOOD JOB WITH THIS BUDGET, EFFECTIVE JULY ONE. MAKING SURE THAT WE HAVE AN ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL IN ALL OF OUR SCHOOLS. AND THEN WITH TEACHERS. WE. INSTITUTED THE RATIOS THAT WE WERE LOOKING AT, AND WE CONSTANTLY MONITOR THOSE

[03:50:07]

RATIOS AND MAKE SURE THAT OUR CLASSROOMS ARE FALLING WITHIN THOSE, UM AND WHETHER OR NOT THE RATIOS NEED TO BE. REVISITED AND REVISED IF THAT'S NECESSARY, SO, UM, THAT CAME OUT OF THAT BUDGET TIME, WHICH WAS A GOOD THING BECAUSE WE REALLY DIDN'T HAVE RATIOS THAT WE. CONSISTENTLY MONITORED, SO I THINK THAT'S THAT'S A BIG IMPROVEMENT AS WELL. THANKS VERY MUCH. ANYONE ELSE? YOU KNOW OTHER HANDS UP, MISS JACK. OKAY IF THERE'S NO OTHER QUESTIONS THAN WE WOULD. ASK FOR YOUR APPROVAL ON EACH OF THE BUDGETS. THE UNRESTRICTED BUDGET WOULD BE WITH THE AMENDMENTS. UM, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE A PREFERENCE TO VOTE ON EACH OF THE AMENDMENTS OR IF WE CAN VOTE WITH ALL OF THOSE AMENDMENTS, BUT WE WOULD NEED MOTIONS AND. APPROVALS FOR EACH OF THE BUDGETS AND THE AMENDMENTS WOULD BE FOR THE UNRESTRICTED FUND. THAT'S THE EACH OF THEM. THAT'S CONVENTIONAL INDIVIDUAL. I'LL GO BACK TO THAT. SORRY EACH INDIVIDUAL AMENDMENT OR EACH INDIVIDUAL BUDGET, MR ROBBINS, EACH INDIVIDUAL BUDGET. OH, BUDGET. OKAY. FOUR. THAT'S FOUR MOTIONS. RIGHT? RIGHT, RIGHT.

UM IS TYPICALLY FALLS UNDER GOAL NUMBER FOUR TO PROVIDE STATE SECURE AND HEALTHY LEARNING ENVIRONMENT. UM, AND WE HAVE DEDICATED PEOPLE AND FACILITIES AND PLANNING AND CONSTRUCTION THAT FOCUSED ON PROVIDING SAFE AND SECURE AND HEALTHY LEARNING ENVIRONMENT CENTER FACILITIES. THE EDUCATIONAL FACILITY.

MASTER PLAN HELPS US TO PLAN FOR FUTURE IMPROVEMENTS BY ASSESSING AND DESCRIBING THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS, RESOURCES AND NEEDS. AND THE COMPREHENSIVE MAINTENANCE PLAN HELPS TO GUIDE THE MAINTENANCE OF OUR FACILITIES AND OUR BROWNS, AND BOTH SET THE DIRECTION FOR A CAPITAL AND IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM. UM THE EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES. MASTER PLAN IS A STATE REQUIREMENT FOR PUBLIC SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM. AS MR BROWN STATED, IT MUST BE SUBMITTED TO THE STATE BY JULY ONE AS A PRECURSOR TO OUR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM. IT IS AN EVOLVING DOCUMENT AND SERVES AS A GUIDE FOR ASSESSING THE NEEDS OF OUR FACILITY. IMPROVEMENTS FOR ALL THE 54 SCHOOLS WITHIN OUR SYSTEM, UM, AND THE 2021 EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES MASTER PLAN DOES INCLUDE ALL THE ESSENTIALS WERE ESSENTIAL ENVIRONMENTS, UM BY THE STATE. THIS YEAR WHERE WE'RE LOOKING AT THE FACILITIES. MASTER PLAN.

WE WERE SPEAKING EARLIER OF THE FACILITIES NEEDS ASSESSMENT THAT'S BEING COMPLETED AT THE STATE. UM THIS ASSESSMENT IS BEING COMPLETED FOR ALL PUBLIC SCHOOLS WITHIN THE STATE. UM, THE RESULTS WILL HAVE A FACILITY CONDITION INDEX AND A RANKING OF THE SCHOOL FACILITIES STATEWIDE. HOWEVER WILL ALSO RECEIVE A RANKING OF OUR SCHOOL FACILITIES AND ACCESS TO THE DATA FOR HARFORD COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS. UM THE LAST EIGHT OR THE LAST LOCAL FACILITY ASSESSMENT WE HAD WAS IN 2015, SO THIS WILL PROVIDE, UM SOME UPDATED DATA ON THAT, HOWEVER, THE ASSESSMENTS NOT AS UH, FULL AND COMPLETE AS THE ONE THAT WAS COMPLETED IN 2015.

ADDITIONALLY UM, WHICH WILL IMPACT OUR CAPITAL PROGRAM. MOVING FORWARD IS THE BALANCING ENROLLMENT PROCESS THAT WE'RE CURRENTLY UNDERGOING, AND THIS WILL HELP US TO ADDRESS THIS.

CAPACITY. EVALUATING THE CONCERNS THAT WE HAVE THE PROGRAM EXPANSION NEEDS AND WHERE THEY PARTICIPATE. ANTICIPATED GROWTH AND TIMELINE IS AND WE'RE HOPING TO UTILIZE THESE MOVING FORWARD TO PRIORITIZE SOME OF THE NEEDS THAT WE. THEY ALREADY IDENTIFIED WITHIN OUR FACILITIES, UM, DEPARTMENT AND ALSO SOME OF THE NEEDS THAT, UM, WE'RE SEEING GROW IN THE CAPACITY NEED. IN THE EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES MASTER PLAN ONE OF THE MAIN THINGS THAT IS APPROVED BY THE BOARD, WITH THE APPROVAL OF THIS PLAN IS THE TIMELINE OF MAJOR CAPITAL PROJECT. UM. THE TIMELINE SPACE OF THE CURRENT COUNTY ADMINISTRATIONS. TREND OF ONLY FUNDING ONE MAJOR PROJECT AT A TIME, UM, JOB TOWN HIGH SCHOOL LEMINA RENOVATION IS CURRENTLY UNDERWAY AND IS PLAN TO COMPLETE UM IN FY 23 FOR THE 22 23 SCHOOL YEAR. WE ARE CURRENTLY IN THE PLANNING PHASE OF THE HOMESTEAD WAKEFIELD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PROJECT, AND WE WILL BE, UM, COMING TO THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. I'M NEXT AT THE NEXT BOARD MEETING FOR APPROVAL OF THE ADS BACK. AND THE NEXT PROJECT THAT IS ON THE TIMELINE IS THE NEW GIANT. YOUR REPLACEMENT SCHOOL. UM, WE ARE ALSO GOING TO BE COMING FORWARD WITH MORE INFORMATION ON THIS SITE RESEARCH THAT WE'VE BEEN UNDERGOING. AND THEN FOLLOWING THAT WE HAVE THE WAY AND PICK OLD POST ROAD ELEMENTARY REPLACEMENT SCHOOL. WE HAVE KEPT THE FOLLOWING TWO ITEMS AS TO BE DETERMINED BASED ON THE

[04:05:07]

DATA SO THAT WE CAN MAKE OUR, UM WE CAN PUT TOGETHER A TIMELINE BASED ON THE ACTUAL DATA. FROM THE STATE ASSESSMENT AND THE BALANCING ENROLLMENT PROCESS. I'LL TURN IT OVER TO MS FEARED FOR THE COMPREHENSIVE MAINTENANCE PLAN. MHM. AS WE STATED WITH THE EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES MASTER PLAN, THE COMPREHENSIVE MAINTENANCE PLAN HAS TO BE UPDATED ANNUALLY. UM FOR ALL PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEMS ACROSS THE STATE. AND THEN SUBMITTED TO THE PUBLIC SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM. THEY ACT AS A, UH PLANNING TOOLS AND ROADMAP FOR US, UH, TO TALK ABOUT HOW WE WANT TO MAINTAIN OUR BUILDINGS. WE WANT TO BE AT TOP EFFICIENCY WE WANT TO ELIMINATE AND REDUCE THE HAZARDS AND WITHIN THE BUILDINGS WITHOUT THE BUILDINGS BE ABLE TO USE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. AND IT'S RECOGNIZING THAT WE HAVE MULTIPLE COMPONENT TO OUR MAINTENANCE PROGRAM, WHETHER IT'S PLANNED, SCHEDULED FOR YOU KNOW, WE HAVE OUR EMERGENCY REPAIRS THAT COME UP. AND THEN THE PREVENTED A MAINTENANCE COMPONENT THAT WOULD ALSO HAVE. WE WANT TO REDUCE THE ENERGY AND JUST BASICALLY PROVIDE THE BEST LEARNING ENVIRONMENT HOSPITAL WITH THE DOLLARS AND RESOURCES THAT WE HAVE. THE NEXT SLIDE.

UM SHOWS SINCE STATISTICS BASED ON OUR PORTFOLIO, AND WE HAVE 180 BUILDINGS. WELL, PLUS. OVER 6.2 MILLION SQUARE FEET. 54 SCHOOLS AS OF THIS SCHOOL YEAR. OVER 2400 CLASSROOMS, 1800 ACRES AND YOU CAN SEE IT'S A VERY LARGE PORTFOLIO WHEN WE START TALKING ABOUT THE BUILDINGS AND THE GROUNDS. NEXT UM, LET'S SEE HAD TOUCHED UPON THE, UM, FACILITIES ASSESSMENT THAT HAD BEEN DONE ACROSS THE COUNTY. UH TO INCLUDE HARFORD COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS THAT WAS IN 2015. THE PUBLIC SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION EMBARKED ON. ASSESSING ALL OF THE L E A'S ACROSS THE STATE. AT THE TIME FRAME THE TARGET TIMEFRAME FOR ROLLING OUT THOSE DRAFT REPORT WOULD BE IN THE FALL. SO YOU KNOW WHEN WE HAVE THAT DATA THAT WOULD BE THE MOST UP TO DATE. AND IT COULD UPDATE SOMEONE'S DOLLAR FIGURES BECAUSE, OF COURSE YOU KNOW THESE WERE FROM 2015. SO THERE'S QUITE A FEW YEARS AND WHEN THAT AND WE WILL CONTINUE.

YOU KNOW, WE HAVE CERTAIN TIMELINES WHERE WE SUBMIT TO THE STATE THAT THE COMPONENTS.

BUT BASICALLY IT'S A YEAR LONG PROCESS. WE'RE ALWAYS UPDATING. UM AND WE'LL BE UPDATING THE SIP PROGRAM THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER WILL BE WORKING WITH. THE BUDGET MANAGERS AND, UM OTHER SPECIALISTS WITHIN HARFORD COUNTY PILOT SCHOOLS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE ALIGNING WITH THE BOARD GOALS.

WE KNOW AND THERE WAS A SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT BECAUSE IT'S ACTUALLY GOES BEYOND THE SCHOOL YEAR. AS WE INDICATED. SOME OF OUR STUDENTS HAVE ALREADY GRADUATED, BUT THIS WAS AN UNUSUAL YEAR, SO WE DID WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THOSE PLAYOFFS. WE HAVE THREE VIRTUAL SEASONS AND WE HAD 155 OF OUR SPECIAL NEEDS. STUDENTS WHO PARTICIPATED AND THE.

ACTIVITIES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR IN BODY YARD, GAMES AND BOWLING ON THE SPRING. WE HAD OVER 1800 STUDENTS PARTICIPATE. AND LACROSSE, SOFTBALL, BASEBALL, TENNIS AND TRACK.

TODAY HARFORD COMMUNITY COLLEGE BEGINS ITS SOME RECESSION AND WHAT THAT MEANS IS IT WAS THE FIRST DAY FOR R P TECH STUDENTS, THE COHORT WHO JUST FINISHED IN LAST THREE YEAR THEY DON'T DO THE COLLEGE COURSES 39TH GRADE.
