                                The Board of Trustees of the Spring Branch Independent

                      4.        Discussion
                           A.   Presentation of the Schematic Design/Design
                                Development for the Memorial High School Science 4x4
                                Program

                                Ruben Reyes, Associate Superintendent for Operations,
                                introduced this presentation. He noted the Memorial
                                High School Strategic Master Plan is not funded out of
                                the 2007 bond, whereas the Science 4x4 program is
                                funded by the bond. The long-range study was
                                undertaken to determine (1) where the Science 4x4
                                program could be placed on the campus, and (2) where
                                the campus could accommodate future facilities growth
                                that could be funded out of future bond projects.
                                Mr. Reyes then introduced Pat Zadow and Kenneth
                                Schneider of Bay Architects. Mr. Zadow began the
                                presentation by explaining the strategic planning process
                                that resulted in the proposed plan to relocate and
                                rearrange existing spaces to accommodate the 4x4 on the
                                Memorial campus. Goals of the plan were to cause the
                                least impact possible on trees and green space and to
                                attain overall coordination of facilities into the future.
                                Mr. Zadow reviewed the Master Plan Coordination Site
                                Plan. He also presented space plans for the relocated
                                Dance and Engineering Technology programs, as well as
                                plans for renovation of these spaces for the Science 4x4.
                                The project should begin early this summer, with an
                                anticipated completion before the start of school year
                                2011-2012. The budget for the project is $1,809,500,
                                exceeding the bond budget by about $200,000.
                                Following questions and comments from members of the
                                Board, President Converse thanked Mr. Zadow and Mr.
                                Schneider for their presentation.
                           B.   Update on Tully/DCC Project
                                Superintendent Klussmann commented to the Board that
                                this project is going well, but there are some issues that
                                have arisen in the excavation and construction process
                                205
     that will require additional cost. There will be a change
     order for approval at the February Regular Meeting.
     Jennifer Henrikson and Laura Sachtleben of SHW
     Architects presented the update on the project. Ms.
     Sachtleben, Project Manager, gave a background of the
     site conditions prior to construction and existing
     upgrades of the renovation. She reviewed photographs
     of improvements that are currently in progress and those
     that have been completed. Ms. Henrikson discussed
     project expenditures and the status of the current project
     contingencies. There are three areas of the project
     proposed for a change order:
         1. Items we know about that need to be addressed
             and have been estimated ($187,854)
         2. Items we would like to accomplish and have been
             estimated ($323,000)
         3. Establishing a future project contingency/change
             order to draw upon ($400,000)
     Ms. Henrikson outlined the specific items within these
     categories that would require funding outside of the
     project budget, including issues with sanitation and
     sound equipment, restrooms, concessions, seating and
     concourse areas, water tightness, ramp and elevator
     issues, as well as addition of an upgraded diamond
     polished floor finish and stained concrete.
     Questions from Board members followed. A request for
     approval of the change order will be made at the Board’s
     regular meeting this month. Following the discussion,
     President Converse thanked Ms. Henrikson and Ms.
     Sachtleben for their presentation and called for a short
     break. The time was 8:00 PM.
C.   Discussion of FY 2011 Budget
     Superintendent Klussmann began the discussion by
     reviewing the Budget Summary General Fund, noting the
     best case revenue estimate has been provided on the
     documents. He presented the updated Enrollment
     Projection Summary for Fall 2010, noting projections are
     slightly higher than the current year’s numbers. There
     was discussion of the campus Staffing Definitions and
     Guidelines, along with the Preliminary Campus Staff
     FTE Summary, comparing current year full time
     employee staffing figures to preliminary staffing for FY
     2011, along with the potential funding impact. An
     extensive discussion followed concerning how to
     approach staffing for teaching positions for next year
     while addressing the $8.5 million dollar budget deficit,
     based on the estimated state revenue. Discussion of
     staffing ratios centered on two potential ways to provide
     a framework for Principals to plan campus staffing for
     the 2010-2011 school year while addressing the deficit:
     (1) Apply for waivers for elementary class size on a case-
     by-case basis, so as to maintain a stable elementary
     staffing level, and
     (2) Freeze high school teacher positions at their current
     levels, allowing Principals to manage class sizes and
     teacher-to-student ratios for next year.
     At the February Regular meeting the Board will be asked
     to approve next year’s enrollment projections and teacher
     ratios.
D.   Discussion of the Board’s Approach to Applications for
     Affordable Housing Projects
     Trustee Falick began this discussion, noting the approach
     to applications should be consistent with the Board’s
     legislative approach. Discussion followed, including
     various concerns regarding quality of life issues for
     residents of the properties and surrounding
     206
                                  neighborhoods. The current procedure to oppose such
                                  tax credits includes a letter of protest submitted by the
                                  district in cases where the concentration of students in a
                                  project poses a burden for the system. The protest letter
                                  is submitted by the Superintendent through the office of
                                  Operations. After discussion the Board determined to
                                  prepare and submit a resolution to the developer of each
                                  project, opposing these tax credits. The resolution will
                                  be prepared by Trustee Falick to be submitted along with
                                  a letter of protest from Superintendent Klussmann. The
                                  resolution will be presented to the Board for their
                                  approval at the February Regular meeting.

                                understanding of the needs of our community -- not only material, but
                                social and emotional as well. She is an untiring advocate for parent
                                training like no one else. She has organized parenting classes, book
                                studies, computer courses, ESL classes, guest speakers, special trips,
                                and conference attendance, just to name a few." She also notes that
                                Ms. Ramirez's cooperative spirit makes her the favorite "go to" girl at

                                For never seeing barriers, but rather opportunties, and for never giving
                                up in her pursuit of excellence for the benefit of Edgewood Elementary
                                and its students, SBISD is proud to recognize Ms. Sonia Ramirez as

5.        Citizens Participation
          Debra Schindler, 11929 Queensbury, introduced herself as an
          SBISD patron, parent and vendor. She announced SBISD as her
          company’s Voice Over IP Technology Customer of the Year for
          the district-wide implementation of the ShoreTel voice over IP
          system. She presented a plaque of recognition to the Board and
          expressed special appreciation to Venu Rao, Chief Information
          Officer and SBISD staff for their collaborative efforts,
          professionalism, and overall excellence.

          Catherine Barchfield, 2108 Peppermill, spoke regarding Agenda
          Item 9G. She referred to current applications for housing tax
          credits by developers for three projects in SBISD: Waterford
          Place, Gentry House, and Clay Ranch. She expressed
          opposition to the projects, noting they are located within less
          than a one-mile radius near Northbrook High School. She asked
          the Board to pass the resolution opposing the applications and
          the re-habitation of these old structures.

          Chuck Davidson, 2219 Eaglerock, asked the Board to include
          and discuss two items on a future Workshop Agenda which he
          believes would impact student achievement and save money if
          implemented:
              (1) He requested appointment of a task force to look at
                  implementing a common schedule for all district high
                  schools, and
              (2) He requested another task force to study the potential
                  cost effectiveness and academic benefit of creating a
                  north side 9th grade only campus and a 10th through 12th
                  grade campus.
          Mr. Davidson also spoke regarding Agenda Item 9G, stating he
          does not support a blanket approach and that each application
          should be considered individually.

          Chris Hajovsky, 8910 Railton, spoke regarding Agenda Item
          9G. He expressed concern for the density of older apartment
          buildings in the northern portion of the district. He noted the
          percentage of apartments in this area aged 40 years or older will
          have increased to 78 percent by 2013, and if tax credits are
          awarded to developers of these properties, the apartments
          already at the end of their life expectancy will be bound to 30
          more years of poverty with continued negative impact on the
          quality of schools and the surrounding neighborhoods. He asked
          the Board to take a comprehensive look at this issue, and he
          presented a letter from Cindy Dunn, Binglewood Civic Club
          President requesting Board action to oppose applications for
          housing tax credits in their area.

           211

                                     regular basis. Trustee Kosmoski offered to draft the procedure

                                      and after discussion, Superintendent Klussmann thanked
                                      Trustees for their support of the Five Year Plan.
