Action items:

  • The board will vote on a resolution to support increased opportunities for high school student to dual enroll in courses at City College of San Francisco

    • The resolution “In Support of Making College More Accessible to SFUSD Students” aims to increase student access to dual enrollment courses and in particular increase enrollment of AA, Latinx, and NHPI students.

    • The resolution also would require SFUSD and CCSF to work together to increase access to dual enrollment in math and science, career apprenticeship and language courses not readily available at the high school level.

    • The resolution would also create an appeals process for students who do not obtain a principal’s sign-off

    Informational Items

    • The board will hear a report from the Parent Advisory Council

    • There will be an update on the Local Indicators Report that each school district must provide to the state for inclusion in the California Dashboard.

    • The annual report on English Learners required by the Lau consent decree will be presented tonight.

    • The annual report on Williams Act compliance will be discussed tonight.

Rules, Policy and Legislation Committee Meeting: Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at 6:00PM

Agenda for the meeting here.

Public Comment

There is always an opportunity for public comment at school board meetings.

At regular meetings, speakers may speak to any item being voted on or may give general public comment during the time reserved for "Public Comment on General Matters." Speakers must sign up in advance, either by calling the board office at (415) 241-6493 or filling out a speaker card at the meeting and handing it to Esther Casco, the executive assistant to the board, who sits next to the podium. Speaker cards must be turned in before the agenda item being spoken to is officially "called."

At committee meetings, those wishing to speak may sign up in advance or simply approach the podium when the committee chair calls for public comment.

Members of the public are typically allowed two minutes to speak, but the time given may be shorter if there are a large number of speakers.
