          improvement in the effectiveness of advanced academic
          programs. For example, the number of students taking AP tests
          or getting three or above on AP tests, or an increase in the
          percentage of AP test taking students who score three or above
          on the test; an increase in the number of students receiving
          ‘commended’ rating on the TAKS in the 2009-10 testing, etc.)

                                12
          communication vehicles about CTE and a brief discussion of
          special enhancements to communication in the 2009-10 evaluation
          period. Enhancements will include additional communication
          efforts at the 6th grade and middle school levels, including
          parents of the students at those grade levels.

     motivation for students in grades 5 - 12 who are not participating in
     any special programs at the two extremes.

          priority needs in the educational program as determined by
          administration, with likely associated costs. The board and
          administration will use the summary for discussing and
          establishing academic performance goals for the next evaluation
          cycle and preliminary budget priorities for the following year.
     C.   The board shall see by September, 2009, a report that provides
          a baseline for determining success of the 10th grade TAKS
          initiative program and of the district’s teacher TAKS incentive
          program and make recommendations to refine both.

Recruit and retain high quality personnel reflective of and responsive to

           compared from the 2008-2009 recruiting season and the 2009-

           Also included will be a section on promotions offered to existing
           minority staff.

Maintain a safe, disciplined environment conducive to learning.
6.   Monitor district discipline to reflect the following desirable qualities:
     a sense of safety, a learning-conducive environment, relatively few
     tardies, appropriate consequences, equal and equitable enforcement.
     Continue evaluating training on school safety/crisis response plan and
     on the Student Code of Conduct.

           performance of each functional area relative to the criteria for
           good performance established in February, 2009. The report will

          2008-09 efforts to promote community confidence in the
          district.

     C.   By January 2010 a proposal for soliciting parent and community
          feedback on satisfaction with the campus/district. For example,

          the end of each feedback mechanism an opportunity for
          respondents to give suggestions on how to improve parent
          involvement at their campus or in the district.

                     The board entered into a discussion. Ms. Smith stated after talking to the
                     attorney in closed session she would make a motion to lease the facility
                     to the two organizations [City of Pearland and Crosspoint Fellowship
                     Church] who have expressed interest in leasing the building.




                                               December 8, 2009 Regular Board Meeting


                                       18
Facilities Leasing   Mr. Gant amended the motion to split the two leases: 1) to lease to the
                     city per purposed lease agreement; 2) not comfortable in leasing to other
                     entities.

                     Ms. Smith declined to accept the amendment.

                     Ms. Smith again moved that the board move forward to lease to both
                     interested parties [the city and church]. The motion was seconded by
                     Mr. Hamil.

                     Ms. Roberts seconded Mr. Gant’s amended motion.

                     After discussion the general consent of the board was to take this item
                     in separate issues.
                     Dr. Garrison called for the vote on the amended motion: FOR: Mr. Gant,
                     Mr. Hamil, Dr. Garrison, Ms. Roberts, and Mr. Solomon Against: Ms.
                     Smith. Motion carried 6-1.

                     The board entered into a discussion in regard to leasing to governmental
                     entities.

                     Mr. Gant moved that the administration be authorized to enter into lease
                     negations with the City of Pearland for their use under the draft lease that
                     our attorney provided and other parameters provided by Mr. Marshall in
                     the limitations as how the district has done business with other
                     governmental entities in the past for an amount of that space as they
                     desire for a period not to exceed this school year and to be re-negotiated
                     or extended per mutual agreement three [3] months prior to that point
                     within parameters discussed by Mr. Marshall and what the district must
                     collect from the state.

                     The motion carried 7-0.

                     Ms. Morris, attorney with Feldman & Rogers, addressed questions
                     presented by the board. She stated the district has already opened the
                     door to lease to other members of the public including religious
                     organizations. The district can set restrictions in the lease, i.e. use
                     restrictions/time/manner. The district will have to give everyone equal
                     opportunity including religious organizations in order to not violate the
                     first amendment. The district cannot discriminate between religious
                     organizations and other entities and has to be equally open to all
                     organizations for consideration to lease. This could also be a year to
                     year decision and each negotiation is per individual renter. The district
                     must have uniform lease rates.

                                       19
Facilities Leasing -   The discussion began with a question from Ms. Brennan in regard to
VERBATIM PER           leasing to private sector then have to open to any group.
AUDIO
RECORDING              Ms. Mickey Morris, attorney with Feldman & Rogers, stated the board
                       can make a decision - a large decision and a smaller decision. The
                       larger decision is are you going to open up this facility to lease to the
                       public beyond another inter-local governmental entity such as the city or
                       the county. If you decide that you are going to open this property up and
                       lease it out to any member of the public then beyond that you can set
                       restrictions on the lease. For example if the SPCA wanted to rent it out
                       you could say okay, we are not going to...you can put use restricts - time,
                       manner, those types of detailed restricts in your lease term. Anybody
                       who is willing to adhere to those rules will lease it out to someone who
                       is not going to engage in obnoxious activities or high traffic
                       activities..someone who is willing to lease the property under those
                       terms. You have to give everybody an equal opportunity to do that. The
                       twist comes when you make a decision to lease facilities to religious
                       organizations. You really have to walk a median on that decision
                       because if you favor religious organizations who are offering you a deal
                       at the expense of a non-religious organization and it can be said that you
                       are promoting or sponsoring or favoring that religious organization you
                       can run into a violation of the first amendment establishment clause. The
                       converse is true if you have a willing tenant who is a religious
                       organization and they are willing to adhere to all your restrictions and
                       rules and pay you rent, you tell them you are willing to lease to the public
                       but are not willing to lease to a church that we just don’t feel right about
                       that, Well, then you are going through the back door violating the first
                       amendment because you are interfering with their right to free exercise,
                       free assembly, free organization. You allow any other organization to
                       lease a facility under these terms but you are not going to allow a
                       religious organization that is as equally unconstitutional. So if you are
                       going to open it up to the public you set your parameters as to what you
                       want your tenant to look like, what rules you want them to follow, what
                       spaces you are willing to allow them to use, what times, at what rent,
                       under what terms of condition, what amount of insurance, etc. Beyond
                       that, if you are going to open up to religious organizations you want to be
                       careful and understanding that if you are going to open it up to...I think
                       this point needs to be made, you have already opened up district
                       properties to religious organizations, so that horse has left the barn, it is
                       too late for you to come back and say we are not going to allow religious
                       organizations to lease or use our facilities you have already allowed other
                       ones to do it. So at this point you cannot discriminate as between
                       religious organizations. I think the portion of the letter you are referring
                       to is once you lease to one religious organization you can not then pick
                       and choose among religious organizations and say we think your church
                       is a little strange, we are not going to lease to you. Once you opened it
                       up to religious organizations and you have as a district, it has to be

Facilities Leasing   equal excess by all religious organizations if they are willing to agree to
                     your terms.

                     The questions was asked if this decision is made by this board can that
                     decision be recalled by future boards?

                     Ms. Morris stated that yes, from year to year this board may decide that
                     they are willing to lease this property to the public and next year that may
                     decide we are not willing to lease to the public we may have a need for
                     it. But the public now means anybody who is willing to agree to your
                     terms, you are not going to be able to, beyond governmental entities, you
                     are not going to be able to pick and choose between religious and non-
                     religious because you already allow religious organizations to use the
                     facilities else where in the district.

                     Ms. Morris was asked to differentiate between rental versus lease [use].

                     Ms. Roberts called for point of order and asked for permission to read a
                     paragraph from Mr. Gilbert’s letter. She read the paragraph and stated
                     we have already opened ourselves up in the area of renting auditoriums
                     to anybody, and now we are looking at, because we have opened up to
                     the government, does that automatically open us up to everybody else.

                     Ms. Morris responded that no, because you have decided to lease to the
                     city, you can limit your use of that facility to other governmental entities
                     and you don’t have to allow any other tenant to use that property.

                     Ms. Roberts asked if because we began this discussion with the other
                     group because the city began the discussion and had planned to do this
                     are we considered to have opened it up?

                     Ms. Morris stated no, informal discussions are not binding, the board has
                     not acted on any decisions with respect to any other tenant you are not
                     bound.

                     Additional clarification was requested to the paragraph Ms. Roberts read
                     from Mr. Gilbert’s letter in regard “I also feel the need to point out, etc.”

                     Ms. Morris stated that in fairness to Mr. Gilbert he was assuming at the
                     time that the city was going to be subleasing to the church. If you are
                     going to enter into your own stand alone agreement with the church that
                     paragraph would apply to the lease with the church but not with the city.




                                                December 8, 2009 Regular Board Meeting


                                        21
Facilities Leasing   Ms. Brennan stated from prior discussions she believes to understand we
                     can do a sliding scale lease rate much like we do the rental rates. We
                     could as long as all governmental entities pay the same rate, all non-
                     profits pay the same rate and all for-profit are offered the same rates.
                     We could use a sliding scale correct?

                     Ms. Morris responded that you could come up with different rates for
                     governmental entities and non-governmental entities, what you negotiate
                     with each particular tenant is really a business decision. You are not
                     going to face any legal implications for a number that is higher or lower
                     than the city’s rent if that is what they are willing to pay. The only issue
                     in setting rent for any non-governmental entity is that by taking on the
                     tenant you are not going to be incurring any expense that would be
                     covered or paid for by the school’s taxpayers. As long as your are not
                     going to be out of pocket, if they pay you enough to cover your expenses,
                     that they would cause you to incur on that lease portion you are going to
                     fine.

                     Ms. Brennan stated we have within our privy to decide what we want, we
                     could calculate - do not want to say profit rate, but a percentage for soft
                     costs.

                     Ms. Morris said you can, if they are willing to pay it. Even in the private
                     sector if you set out what your published rates are, people offer specials,
                     they are willing to negotiate, it is really what the market will bear. If you
                     have people lined out the door all willing to pay your set rates, would be
                     prudent to apply uniformly. But if you don’t have tenants lined up to use
                     the space and it would otherwise stay vacant at a cost to the district and
                     you have a tenant that is willing to pay a reasonable amount of rent to
                     defray those costs, what that amount is, is subject to negotiations you
                     can include anything you want in that rate if you want to raise it up if they
                     are willing to pay it you have a deal, if they are not willing to pay it, then
                     you see if you can find someone else who is. That goes into the realm
                     of being a business decision. A market driven decision but not a legal
                     issue.

                     Ms. Brennan again questioned the rate scale - if church A is charged x
                     amount would church B be charged the same amount or would that a
                     separate business?

                     Ms. Morris stated as between non-governmental renters you do not want
                     to be seen as discriminating between a tenant because they are or are
                     not a religious organization. It is a good idea to have a uniform rate. If
                     there is a fluctuation that can be justified because of the terms of that
                     particular lease perhaps that tenant wants additional custodial services,
                     require more security or police surveillance, more parking, perhaps they
                     are a tax paying renter, you are going to have to add on taxes to that

Facilities Leasing   rental. As long as you can justify the difference as being a business
                     driven difference not a discriminatory. Can set rates there is room to
                     move within those rates.

                     Mr. Hamil asked that administration come back with a proposed lease for
                     non-government leasing using a sliding scale.

                     Dr. Garrison asked if the board would like to make a motion or by nod of
                     head for administration to tell non-governmental agencies the district will
                     not lease to them.

                     Dr. Garrison asked if anyone was willing to bring forth a motion on this
                     otherwise it would be prudent at this time by nodding of heads to have
                     administration to tell people other than non-governmental agencies that
                     at this moment the district is not interested in leasing and allow us to look
                     into a little bit further on our own.

                     Ms. Smith made a motion for Dr. Cain to come back with a contract for
                     non-governmental entities to lease the building. No second was made.

                     The board agreed if this is brought up again the board is willing to adhere
                     to paragraph [below] stated in Mr. Chris Gilbert’s letter to the board.

                     “I also feel the need to point out that by leasing to the City and the
                     Church, the District has opened a forum for the Bailey Road Campus (the
                     non-school part) and that you will not be able to discriminate against
                     other potential renters in the future because the District does not like their
                     viewpoints or beliefs. This means that after Crosspoint (or the City)
                     moves out, if the district goes looking for a new tenant and the only
                     applicants are a Muslim church, or a Satanist church, or the KKK,
                     assuming that they are non-profit the District could not reject their
                     applications simply because it does not like their beliefs.”

                     Continuing with the discussion Dr. Garrison stated he for one would like
                     to find a way around that portion because he would like to lease that
                     building or any other space we have either non-governmental non-profit
                     or for-profit. He asked if there is any way around the second paragraph?

                     Ms. Morris asked by opening it to non-governmental entities but not
                     churches...

                     Dr. Garrison referred to the second sentence of the letter from Mr.
                     Gilbert, is there anything the district could do but not open to obnoxious
                     leasers.




                                                December 8, 2009 Regular Board Meeting


                                        23
Facilities Leasing   Ms. Morris stated yes, you can set certain requirements of certain things
                     that you do not want the tenants to do, but if you are going to
                     discriminate on the tenant because they are a religious organization, that
                     is illegal as favoring a tenant because they are a religious organization.
                     If you have a willing tenant and one is a church and one is not a church
                     you have to walk a very fine line to not break the law on their right to rent
                     the facility. The difference between a school district and a strip center is
                     a strip center can say we are not to allow you to compete with me - they
                     are private- they are not subject to the constitution, the Bill of Rights.
                     The district is government, you can not infringe on somebody’s free
                     exercised rights, but a private landlord can - that is the difference. When
                     a governmental entity gets into the business of leasing if you are going
                     to lease it and collect money from a tenant then discriminating on the
                     basis of somebody’s religious affiliation is something you want to avoid.
                     In this case, as a district, if the justification is we just don’t want to be in
                     the business of having religious organizations use district property, that
                     ship has sailed because you have allowed religious organizations to use
                     gymnasiums in active campuses where there are children every day.
                     This is an empty facility where there will not be children...

                     Dr. Garrison interrupted to clarify not during school day but generally on
                     weekends when the building is not being used or occupied by children

                     Ms. Morris stated you would have to come up with a reason to say as a
                     district we have a policy of allowing religious organizations to rent our
                     facilities but we are not going to allow a religious organization to lease
                     this facility there would have to be a justification for the distinction- really
                     from a legal standpoint not a difference. If you are willing to collect
                     money from a church to use this facility here...you have already.

                     Dr. Garrison said he understood but was talking more about
                     organizations that are generally identified by the public as hate promoters
                     .

                     Ms. Morris said keep in mind that paragraph I realize that it is a very
                     staringly paragraph that Mr. Gilbert wrote rings true for any other
                     gymnasium. As a district you would need to amend policy that you do
                     not allow religious organizations to use your facilities period. Since that
                     is not your policy you could not discriminate against a potential tenant
                     who is a religious organization.

                     Ms. Brennan stated as a district we limit the liability with a rental
                     agreement because it is short term- not the same as a lease.

                                If we are clustering students in 7/8, how is this
                                being tracked? How can we tell how many GT

                                  Beginning at the August 11, 2009 School Board
                                 Meeting, Advanced Academics has been

                                 June 23, 2009 School Board Meetings. It is the goal
                                 of Advanced Academics to continually strive to
                                 improve the identification, staff development, and

                          returned the survey, the results are very much in support
                          of the Magnet school concept.

                   5.     AP Merit Plan Proposal:
                          Information is provided so that the board may provide merit
                          pay to teachers for the number of students who take/pass
                          the AP exam. The ratio of students taking the AP exam to
                          the number of graduating seniors is the primary measure
                          for Newsweek’s “Best High Schools” report. Dr. Cain is
                          requesting the board’s approval on the proposed plan four
                          incentive plan.
            Mr. Gant made a motion that the board accept the superintendent’s
            recommendation for the proposed plan four “Increased AP Exam
            Participation and Higher Exam Scores” for the incentive plan.

            Mr. Gant made a friendly amendment that this plan be for three years.
            A discussion followed with Ms. Gigee, Ms. Amy Beverly, and Ms. Melanie
            Grote addressing concerns expressed by the board.

Academics           tiered, reinforcing plan.

                    Dr. Garrison called for the vote with the motion approved 7-0.

                    Mr. Gant restated his motion that the board approve the implementation
                    of the merit pay for advanced placement teachers based on the rationale
                    shown forth to be implemented over the next three years on a graduating
                    scale and that the superintendent will bring to the board the actual
                    implementation data or provide it to the board before the end of the
                    December term not to exceed $98,000 dollars. No second was made.

                    three or four school districts in the United States has a foundation, most
                    generating $100,000 to $500,000 a year.

Public Comment      Mr. Mike Hogg, minister New Life Ministries, addressed the board in
                    regard to leasing of PISD facilities to non-profit entities such as
                    Crosspoint Fellowship and asked the board to consider their offer as
                    good business for the district.

                    Tom Allen, minister Crosspoint Fellowship, and Bryan Shippey, youth
                    minister Crosspoint Fellowship, addressed the board in regard to the
                    leasing of PISD facilities to Crosspoint Fellowship and asked the board
                    to do the right thing - what is best for the students, their parents, the
                    taxpayers, the citizens the board represents and the city.

Public Comment     them as the location for their new church and stated he hopes this type
                   of relationship continues.

                   Howard Bush, member of Providential Baptist Church, thanked the board
                   for the opportunity to lease the Massey Ranch facility to the church.

                   David Villejoin, campus pastor at New Hope Church, spoke in regard to
                   the lack of land for churches to build resulting in no place for the church
                   for worship. He stated as a taxpayer he is in full support for churches to
                   worship in vacant facilities which will be in the best interest to people in
                   our city.
District Goals     11.G.1 Goals 6A and 6B - Dr. Craycraft, TASB consultant, presented a
                   summary of the employee opinion survey.
                   Goal 6A/6B:
                   6.    Monitor district discipline to reflect the following desirable
                         qualities: a sense of safety, a learning-conducive environment,
                         relatively few tardies, appropriate consequences, equal and
                         equitable enforcement. Continue evaluating training on school
                         safety/crisis response plan and on the Student Code of Conduct.
                         A.      The board saw in December, 2009 the latest survey of
                                 teacher satisfaction with discipline plan implementation.
                                 The superintendent included a summary of significant
                                 concerns that exist on the campus level, corrective action
                                 recommended by staff, and cost implications.
                         B.      The board saw no decrease in teacher satisfaction from
                                 the initial administration of the survey (i.e., improvement
                                 over baseline data). At the October 13th board meeting the
                                 board agreed to fold this goal into a TASB survey.

                   Dr. Craycraft answered questions presented by the board.
Outdoor Lighting   11.F - In the fall concerns were expressed by the board about the
Report             balance between adequate lighting, security lighting, appropriate times
                   for lighting, and monies for bringing all systems under one umbrella. The
                   district hired a consulting firm to look into this matter. The study was
                   conducted to see how the district is currently controlling outside lighting.

                   The board entered into a discussion. Mr. Holland and Mark Madorski,
                   PBK, addressed questions presented by members of the board

                   Dr. Cain asked the board for Mr. Partin, Mr. Holland and Mr. Ordeneaux
                   to proceed with the next stage for easing lighting problems.
Testing            11.C - The following information was presented by PISD Testing Director,
Department         Susan Cornell.

                     Dr. Garrison asked if board members would like to remove items from

                     Ms. Roberts requested to remove items 10.A.4 and 10.A.6. A motion

Minutes of           Dr. Garrison requested to amend the December 1st minutes by changing
Previous Meetings    the wording in “Action on Closed Session”. In regard to the December
                     15th minutes, Ms. Roberts requested that it be stated on the record that
                     the minutes are being amended to reflect that in the closed session
                     portion of the meeting when discussing leasing of facilities to outside
                     entities she did not “excuse” herself; she formally and legally recused
                     herself from that discussion. She physically left the meeting and did not
                     return until that discussion was finished. The board had concerns with
                     a paragraph in the December 8th minutes with the characterization of the
                     attorney’s opinion regarding lease versus rental. The amended minutes
                     will be presented for approval at the February 9th board meeting.

                     10.A.1 - That the minutes of the Regular Board Meeting held on

Waiver for          Ms. Barbara Derrick and Dr. Nyla Watson answered Ms. Roberts
Innovative Course   questions in regard to the Innovative Courses and stated this is part of
                    the curriculum but by law must be presented every three years for
                    approval by the board.

                    10.A.4 - A motion was made by Ms. Roberts that the board of trustees
                    approve the renewal of the TEA waiver to permit Compensatory
                    Education Home Instruction for pregnant students attending the Pearland
                    Independent School District. The motion carried 6-0.
Final Payment       10.A.6 -That the board authorize final payment to City of Pearland for the
Aquatic Facility    district’s commitment to share in the cost of the Aquatic Facility.

                    Ms. Roberts pulled this item to state she would like to request a
                    tour/walk-through of the facility and cannot support this payment until
                    completion of the facility.

                    The board entered into a discussion. The consensus of the board is that
                    they have no problem with withholding final payment until completion of
                    the facility.

                    Ms. Roberts moved that the board withhold payment on this item until
                    completion of the facility.

                    The meeting recessed at 9:37 p.m. and reconvened at 9:46 p.m.

                    The board again entered into discussion with reference being made to
                    Local Policy CV: “Final payments for construction work and/or the
                    supervision of such work in the District shall not be made until the work
                    has been completed and accepted by the Board”. The board accepts
                    that the city will complete the facility but it is not completed at this time
                    and will not consent to payment until completed or completion date is
                    given. Concerns were that the facility would not be completed per
                    district’s requirements.

                    Ms. Roberts amended motion to state that the board will withhold/delay
                    payment until that time when the facility is more substantially complete,
                    accepted by the district’s individuals and in compliance with Local Policy
                    CV.

                    Dr. Garrison asked that the board send a letter to the city to explain the
                    rationale and is hopeful there will be no hard feelings and that if
                    something is produced showing that the board or a previous board made
                    a commitment to that (even if it is contrary to policy) then it would need
                    to be reviewed.

A discussion followed.

Ms. Roberts asked if in covering duties and responsibilities of
board members in considering sanction; if there is any discussion
pertaining to her, she expects that it would take place in open
session.

Ms. Roberts asked for definition of the word sanction and asked
for the policy where it exists or the meaning of the board’s vote to
sanction a board member.

Ms. Smith stated that she contacted TEA and explained that the
board member that is being sanctioned is not in compliance with
the rest of the board and that the sanctioned board member is
acting separately and destructively to the board and the remaining
board members want to distance themselves from the sanctioned
board member.

No action is needed for this motion.

Ms. Schneider-Vogel answered questions of board members
regarding clarification of sanctioning of a board member.
The meeting recessed at 5:29 p.m. and reconvened at 5:32 p.m.




                          February 1, 2010 Special Board Meeting


                51
Safety         Mr. Cary Partin, Mr. Bob Crager, and Ms. Renea Ivy-Sims gave
Presentation   a presentation on the Implementation of Additional Policies,
               Procedures, and Training for Employee Safety. Board members
               viewed the Employee Safety video.

               Dr. Glenn Garrison arrived to the meeting at 5:57 p.m.

               Ms. Brennan relinquished control of the meeting to Dr. Garrison.

               Ms. Ivy-Sims continued with her presentation.

               A discussion followed with emphasis on employee reassurance.

               Mr. Partin, Mr. Crager and Mrs. Ivy-Sims answered questions
               from board members.

               Mr. Partin presented signage that is posted on district facilities
               and explained policy GKA (Legal) and GKA (LOCAL). A
               discussion followed.

               Dr. Cain shared information she received from District Attorney
               Jerri Yenne. Dr. Cain responded that Ms. Yenne said she was
               going to take the gun incident to the grand jury.

               Ms. Roberts read GK (LEGAL) policy and stated the date on this
               approved policy is January 2008. When the board asked back in
               August that policies related to weapons be reviewed this was
               overlooked. Why was this not implemented by ordering and
               posting signs as outlined in policy.

               In response to the question regarding federal law preempting
               state law Ms. Schneider-Vogel stated it would depend on what the
               individual was going to be charged with. Normally federal law
               does preempt so in terms of does Pearland ISD have to have a
               sign that prohibits someone from bringing a gun on school
               property; concealed or otherwise, she would say PISD has that
               sign and the one to which Ms. Roberts referred would be
               unnecessary. In terms of that person being prosecuted under the
               concealed weapon statute, maybe it would.




                                        February 1, 2010 Special Board Meeting


                              52
                   Ms. Roberts stated given there are written requirements for signs
                   regarding possession of a gun by a licensed owner and PISD had
                   an incident with a gun in August of 2009; why are we now not in
                   possession of and displaying signs on every building that have the
                   wording laid out in paragraph one on page 257 of GKA (LEGAL)
                   dated January of 2008.

                   Ms. Smith stated the police did not inform the district there was a
                   problem in August of 2009 when the first situation was
                   investigated.

                   Dr. Cain stated that Mr. Partin will continue to pursue this issue
                   and a report on the necessity of the sign will be forthcoming.

                         BOARD OF TRUSTEES

Date:       February 9, 2010                         Presented By:     Dr. Bonny Cain
            Consider Approval of Adopting Order
            Calling School Trustee Election and
            Canvassing Results and Setting Date
Subject:    for Tie Breaker Election, If Necessary   Related Page(s)



                                    Action
 BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

 Section 11.057 and 11.058 of the Texas Election Code [as revised by Senate Bill
 No. 1 and as interpreted by the Attorney General in LO95-087] no longer permits
 majority/runoff elections for districts that elect trustees at large by numbered
 position. Instead such districts must elect trustees by plurality. That is, the
 candidate receiving the highest number of votes for a position is elected without
 the necessity of a runoff election. Only in the event of a tie vote is a second
 election required as provided for in Section 2.002 of the Texas Election Code.

 Section 67.003(a) of the Election Code provides that the canvass generally must
 take place no earlier than the eighth day after the election and no later than the
 eleventh day after the election date. The canvassing of the election results may
 take place at a regular board meeting, a board workshop, or a called board
 meeting. For purposes of conducting the canvass, two members of the
 governing body constitute a quorum, per Section 67.004(a) of the Code.

 Positions Five [5], Six [6] and Seven [7] will be on the ballot for the May 8, 2010
 election.




 RECOMMENDATION:             That the board of trustees adopt the Order calling the
                             May 8, 2010 Trustee Election and in the event of a tie
                             vote the date of June 19, 2010 be set for a runoff
                             election. Further, that canvassing dates for these
                             elections be set for May 18, 2010 and June 29, 2010,
                             respectively.

                                              RECITALS

     Political Subdivision is holding a Municipal Election (at the expense of Political Subdivision)
on May 8, 2010. .

       The County owns an electronic voting system, the Hart InterCivic eSlate Voting System

voting system and to compensate the County for such use and to share in certain other expenses
connected with joint elections in accordance with the applicable provisions of Chapters 31 and 271
of the Texas Election Code, as amended.

       NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants, agreements, and benefits to
the parties, IT IS AGREED as follows:

                                        I. ADMINISTRATION

Election Code and this agreement. The County Clerk of Brazoria County shall coordinate,
supervise, and handle all aspects of administering the Joint Election as provided in this agreement.

administrative costs as provided in this agreement. The County Clerk shall serve as the
administrator for the Joint Election; however, the Political Subdivision shall remain responsible for
the decisions and actions of its officers necessary for the lawful conduct of its election. The County
Clerk shall provide advisory services in connection with decisions to be made and actions to be
taken by the officers of the Political Subdivision.

        It is understood that other political subdivisions may wish to participate in the us e of the
County’s electronic voting system and polling places, and it is agreed that Brazoria County and the
County Clerk may enter into other joint election agreements and contracts for election services for
those purposes on terms and conditions generally similar to those set forth in this contract. Political
Subdivision agrees that Brazoria County may enter into joint election agreements with other
political subdivisions that may have territory located partially or wholly within the boundaries of
Political Subdivision, and in such case all parties sharing common territory shall share a joint ballot


                                                   1

                                            63

be divided among the participants.

        At each polling location, joint participants shall share voting equipment and supplies to the
extent possible. The participating parties shall share a mutual ballot in those precincts where

overlap.

required election orders, resolutions, notices, and any other pertinent documents required by the
Texas Election Code and/or Political Subdivision’s governing body, charter, or ordinances. With
reference to publications, the “County Clerk” will publish the “Notice of Tabulation Testing”, but the

                                 XI. RECORDS OF THE ELECTION

       The County Clerk is hereby appointed general custodian of the voted ballots and all records
of the Joint Election as authorized by Section 271.010 of the Texas Election Code.

       Access to the election records shall be available to each participating authority as well as to
the public in accordance with applicable provisions of the Texas Election Code and the Texas
Public Information Act. The election records shall be stored at the offices of the County Clerk or at
an alternate facility used for storage of county records. The Elections Department shall ensure that
the records are maintained in an orderly manner so that the records are clearly identifiable and
retrievable.

       Records of the election shall be retained and disposed of in accordance with the provisions
of Section 66.058 of the Texas Election Code. If records of the election are involved in any pending
election contest, investigation, litigation, or open records request, the County Clerk shall maintain
the records until final resolution or until final judgment, whichever is applicable. It is the
responsibility of each participating authority to bring to the attention of the County Clerk any notice
of pending election contest, investigation, litigation or open records request which may be filed
with the participating authority.

                                           XII. RECOUNTS

      A recount may be obtained as provided by Title 13 of the Texas Election Code. Political
Subdivision agrees that any recount shall take place at the offices of the County Clerk, and that the
County Clerk shall serve as Recount Supervisor and the Political Subdivision’s official or employee
who performs the duties of a secretary under the Texas Election Code shall serve as Recount
Coordinator.

       The Elections Department agrees to provide advisory services to the District as necessary
to conduct a proper recount and cost of the recount depends on the size of the election and
number of precincts to be recounted.

                               XIII. MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS

       1. It is understood that to the extent space is available, that other districts and political
subdivisions may wish to participate in the use of the County’s election equipment and voting
places, and it is agreed that the County Clerk may contract with such other districts or political
subdivisions for such purposes and that in such event there may be an adjustment of the pro-rata
share to be paid to the County by the participating authorities.

      2. The County clerk shall file copies of this document with the Brazoria County Treasurer
and the Brazoria County Auditor in accordance with Section 31.099 of the Texas Election Code.




                                                   6

                                            68
       3. In the event that legal action is filed contesting Political Subdivision’s election under Title
14 of the Texas Election Code, Political Subdivision shall choose and provide, at its own expense,
legal counsel for the County, the County Clerk, and additional election personnel as necessary.

       4. Nothing in this contract prevents any party from taking appropriate legal action against
any other party and/or other election personnel for a breach of this contract or a violation of the
Texas Election Code.

       5. The parties agree that under the Constitution and laws of the State of Texas, neither
Brazoria County nor Political Subdivision can enter into an agreement whereby either party agrees
to indemnify or hold harmless another party; therefore, all references of any kind, if any, to
indemnifying or holding or saving harmless for any reason are hereby deleted.

       6. This agreement shall be construed under and in accord with the laws of the State of
Texas, and all obligations of the parties created hereunder are performable in Brazoria County,
Texas.

        7. In the event of one of more of the provisions contained in this Agreement shall for any
reason be held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity, illegality, or
unenforceability shall not affect any other provision hereof and this agreement shall be construed
as if such invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provision had never been contained herein.

      8. All parties shall comply with all applicable laws, ordinances, and codes of the State of
Texas, all local governments, and any other entities with local jurisdiction.

       9. The waiver by any party of a breach of any provision of this agreement shall not operate
as or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach.

        10. Any amendments of this agreement shall be of no effect unless in writing and signed by
all parties hereto.

                        XIV. COST ESTIMATES AND DEPOSIT OF FUNDS

        It is estimated that Political Subdivision’s obligation under the terms of this agreement shall
be $11,874.22. Political Subdivision agrees to pay to Brazoria County a deposit of $5,937.11,
which is approximately fifty (50) percent of the total estimated obligation of Political Subdivision to
the County under this agreement. This deposit shall be paid to Brazoria County within 10 days after
the final candidate filing deadline. The final candidate filing deadline is March 8, 2010. Therefore,
deposit is due by March 19, 2010. The exact amount of the Political Subdivision’s obligation under
the terms of this agreement shall be calculated after the May 8, 2010 election and if the amount of
the Political Subdivision’s obligation exceeds the amount deposited, the Political Subdivision shall
pay to Brazoria County the balance due within thirty (30) days after receipt of the final invoice from
the County Clerk’s Election Department. However, if the amount of the Political Subdivision’s
obligation is less than the amount deposited, Brazoria County shall refund to the Political
Subdivision the excess amount paid within thirty (30) days after final costs
are calculated.

               RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE
                 PEARLAND INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT

      The Board of Trustees of the Pearland Independent School District (“District”)
hereby makes the following findings in connection with District property and facilities:

          1.   The District is not presently using significant portions of the Bailey Road
               Facility. With the exception of certain spaces that the District will continue
               to use for educational purposes, the remainder of the building is currently
               vacant.

          2.   The Board of Trustees previously determined that it would cooperate with
               the City of Pearland to lease certain portions of the Bailey Road Facility to
               the City for governmental purposes.

          3.   The Board now desires to enter into a short term lease with a non-profit
               entity for certain remaining portions of the Bailey Road Facility, provided
               that such an arrangement will be in the best financial interest of the District
               and will not interfere with the co-existing educational purposes of the
               building. The term of any negotiated lease must not extend beyond the end
               of the 2010-2011 school year, at which time the District will evaluate its
               needs for and desired uses of the Bailey Road Facility.

          4.   The terms of any negotiated lease of the Bailey Road facility must be
               approved by the Board of Trustees.

          THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED.

Passed the 9th day of February, 2010.



                                           President, Board of Trustees

Subject:    Discussion and Possible Action on HB3   Related Page(s)



                                   Action
 BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
 On Jan. 15, 2010, the State Board of Education adopted amendments to the
 graduation requirements. The new requirements are effective beginning in the
 2010-2011 school year. School districts retain the authority to add requirements
 beyond what is required in state law and rule for graduation.

 The key changes are:
       Students are no longer required to complete the one-half credit in health.
       Students are no longer required to complete the one credit in technology
       applications.
       Students are now required to complete only one credit in physical
       education.
       Students may earn up to one credit in PE for participation in athletics,
       JROTC, or approved commercially-sponsored physical activity programs
       conducted on or off campus for up to four credits toward graduation.
       Students may earn up to one credit for any PE courses through
       participation in drill team, marching band, or cheerleading if the activity
       includes at least 100 minutes per five-day school week of moderate to
       vigorous physical activity.
       Students may no longer substitute Dance or two or three-credit career and
       technology work-based training courses for PE credit.
       Students who earned their PE credit through a Dance or CTE substitution
       prior to the start of the 2010-2011 school year will still get credit for that
       substitution.
       Credit may not be earned for any PE course more than once and no more
       than four substitutions may be earned through any combination of
       allowable substitutions.

 TASB Policy Consultant Kathy London stated in a phone call on Jan. 20, 2010
 that PISD would not need to change policy if the district followed HB 3. She said
 that only the Course Selection Handbook would need to be changed. She added
 that TASB would be sending out updates later in the spring after an in-depth
 study of all the components of HB 3; therefore, the district may need to make
 other adjustments after TASB sends updated information. Ms. London described
 the SBOE as covering the holes from HB 3.

                                    100
RECOMMENDATION:    That the board adopt and that PISD follow the
                   amended graduation requirements from HB 3 for
                   incoming 9thgraders in the fall of 2010-2011. By
                   adopting this plan now, the information can be
                   communicated to parents and students before school
                   starts.

 BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

 With the implementation and management of Munis, the new finance and human
 resource software, an additional Programmer Analyst will be needed to insure
 the accuracy and stability of the finance and human resource departments. This
 position will support in house capabilities of Munis with respect to new functions
 currently being served by outside vendors and systems. Additional support will
 also facilitate the future consolidation of functions and increased demands for
 data information services within the district.




 RECOMMENDATION:            That the board of trustees approve the position of one
                            [1] additional Programmer Analyst for the 2009-2010
                            and subsequent school years.

FROM:          Don Marshall

SUBJECT:       Additional Personnel to Maintain Software for the Business Office
               and Department of Human Resource Services

DATE:          January 2, 2010



During our search for a more cost effective software system for the Business Office and
Department of Human Resource Services, it became apparent that the technology
departments of other districts support not only the instructional software but also the
financial/personnel systems as well. Mr. Crager and I met with Vickie McCarthy to
discuss her willingness for the Technology Department to accept responsibility for
implementing and maintaining the new MUNIS software system and she was very
receptive given the proper support and resources.

In order to accept responsibility for the financial/HRS software, the one personnel
position that supports the existing software will be reassigned from the Business Office to
the Technology Department. Considering the Technology Department has never
supported financial/personnel software, this will be a major shift of responsibility within
the school district. Due to vacation, sick leave, continuing education, etc., staff in the
Business Office and Department of Human Resource Services had to acquire a minimum
understanding of crucial applications in the operating system should the programmer
analyst be unavailable. With the reassignment of the programmer analyst, staff in the
Technology Department will be required to assume responsibility for duties of the
programmer analyst if he or she is unavailable.

Mr. Crager, Ms. McCarthy and I believe that an additional programmer analyst is
essential if the Technology Department is to support the district’s financial/personnel
software systems. The expectations over the next twelve months to (1) schedule, train and
implement the new MUNIS software system, (2) maintain the current iTCCS software
system, and (3) keep current interface programs running (TimeClock Plus, AESOP and
Winocular) will be too demanding for one person.

Thank you for your consideration and please call me if you have any questions or
concerns regarding this request.

Memo
 To:     Dr. Cain
 From:   Vickie McCarthy
 CC:     Cary Partin
 Date:   2/3/2010
 Re:     Additional Programmer



 I am recommending that an additional Programmer Analyst be hired to assist with the implementation
 and management of Munis, which is the new finance and human resource software. The accuracy and
 stability of the finance and human resource departments are vital to all district employees. Currently
 there is one Programmer Analyst who is responsible for supporting and maintaining these two
 departments. Munis has identified the lack of programming support as a single point failure and have
 deemed it as a large risk for a successful implementation and continued support. Throughout the
 implementation of the new software, the current Programmer Analyst is responsible for being the
 Project Manager over the new conversion, maintaining the current system, managing Aesop,
 Winocular, Time Clock Plus, and legacy software while fulfilling current job duties. This job is too large
 for one person to do well.

 We are moving from an off-site system that has off-site support to an in-house approach that will allow
 for greater flexibility in meeting the changing needs of the district. Munis has and affords an expanded
 reporting capability. All of these features will take additional programming skills to fully utilize and
 support the capabilities of the new system. This position will support in house capabilities of Munis with
 respect to new functions currently being served by outside vendors and systems. Additional support
 will also facilitate the future consolidation of functions and increased demands for data information
 services within the district.

 Thank you for your consideration. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

RE:           Outdoor Lighting



For sometime control of the district’s exterior lighting has been a problem. At the January
12, 2010 board meeting PBK presented a study which provided information on the process
and cost of providing remote control of outdoor parking lot lighting and also providing a
safety zone of lighting for early and late employees. The maintenance and energy
departments are currently doing an in-depth diagnosis of the study presented. The study is
providing invaluable information on all campuses especially the older campuses and
facilities controlled by time clocks and photocells. As the information is digested some
items jump to the forefront. One valuable insight is that the majority of the cost of providing
the services suggested in the study is the rewiring necessary to provide safety zones within
the confines of the parking lot lighting. One possible solution to this would be to provide
flood lighting to specific areas to create a safety zone for our early and late employees.
Maintenance and energy personnel will continue to mine the study data for information
which will point to other possible solutions to providing control and safety from our outdoor
lighting. Regular meetings will be held to evaluate the information gathered.

On January 21 a committee of David Holland, Keith Ordeneaux, Matt Cline, Jay Murphy,
Bob Crager, and Cary Partin met to discuss possible actions that might be taken to control
parking lot lighting and to provide a safety lighting zone for early and late employees.

Several different strategies emerged. Mr. Ordeneaux was tasked with developing a lighting
schedule and a process for principals, coaches, band directors, and others to order lighting
for special events. Mr. Murphy and Mr. Cline were assigned the task of evaluating locations
and costs for providing flood lights for safety zones. Mr. Holland and Mr. Murphy were
tasked with investigating the use and cost of updated time clocks at the following locations:
 East, transportation, Challenger, Sabalatura, West, Searcy, PHS, Jamison, Lawhon,
Shadycrest, and maintenance. Mr. Murphy and Mr. Cline will also begin the process of
evaluating photoelectric cell use. The work will be completed in stages as availability of
personnel and funds permit.

Stage 1 – develop a lighting schedule – 1 month




                                         122
Stage 2 – develop process for ordering lighting for special purposes – 1-2 months
Stage 3 – update time clocks at various locations – 4-6 months
Stage 4 – develop safety zones with flood lights – 6-12 months
Stage 5 – develop process for controlling photoelectric lighting – 6-12 months

                                 Exterior Lighting Plan

Below is a survey that was completed of area districts and their exterior lighting schedules along with
the proposed exterior lighting schedule. This is followed by a summary of the current controls and plan
of action for updates to these controls. Also due to the short run times of the exterior lighting schedules
there is also a summary of how campuses will turn in request for special events that need lighting
passed the proposed schedules. The last step in this lighting plan is to add lighting in ‘safety zones’ for
staff that enters or leaves the building when exterior lighting is scheduled to be off.

Exterior lighting will be controlled in one of two ways; either by digital controls (computer automation
systems) or digital time clocks. At this point at least 80% of all exterior lighting is controlled by digital
controls which allow for centralized scheduling of the lighting. The rest of the controls are a
combination of time clocks and photocells.

The time clocks and photocells will be updated due to lack of reliability and long term cost savings
afforded by newer technologies. The two new technologies being looked at will both improve reliability
while one has the added bonus of a long term money saving possibility. Both of these time clocks have
built-in non-volatile memory in case power outage while the other has the added benefit of the ability
to calculate sunrise and sunset throughout the year. This allows for the lighting on and off times to be
automatically adjusted day by day. At this time some of the newer campuses with digital controls have
this ability and we are looking to expand this district wide.

Campuses will be able to request extended exterior lighting run times through the current Maintenance
work order system. These requests will be sent to both the Energy and Risk Manager and members of
the Maintenance staff. Once the requests are received the lighting schedules will be adjusted by these
offices to meet the needs of the campus and organizations. Lighting with computer automation systems
will be under the control of the Energy and Risk Manager, while lighting controlled by time clocks will be
controlled by the Maintenance department.

The final part of this lighting plan is to add flood lights, with extended night run times, to small areas of
the facilities. This will allow for operations staff members and other that must leave the building after
the lights have turned off to safely exit the building. These lights will be scheduled as follows:

Focused Areas

The following are areas the district is currently evaluating or has scheduled for
evaluation:

       1.         Computers and Monitor displays

       2.         Non-Networked systems and appliances.

       3.         Power conditioners for HVAC pumps and motors at the unit level.

       4.         Cost effective upgrades to facility lighting.


Process for Evaluation

Computers and Monitors displays:
Currently the District Energy is conducting an audit of systems being left on at each
facility within the district. Based on current numbers this is an area which needs a
comprehensive solution to allow for the centralized shutting down of computer systems
across the district network. The solutions must be flexible enough to accommodate
operational requirements while providing a significant cost savings. Several vendors and
their software are currently being evaluated by the District’s Technology Department and
a recommendation will be forthcoming in the next month.

Non-Networked systems and appliances:
The District’s Energy Manager has acquired a number of “Smart” power strips for testing
purposes. These units will be used to shut down items such as copiers, vending
machines, coffee makers, non-networked computer systems and other items that can be
identified as being cost effective. The units will be tested starting in February with
testing being completed by the end of March. The Energy manger is currently
developing a review schedule to identify the specific placement of the “Smart” power
strips to achieve maximum savings and cost effectiveness.




                                             126
Power conditioners for HVAC pumps and motors at the unit level:
Evaluation has started with the plant located at Pearland Junior High West. The district is
waiting for the study to be submitted to the Energy Manager. Once we have received the
study the cost effectiveness can be evaluated.

Cost effective upgrades to facility lighting:
Using a recent external study performed by PBK the district is developing an action plan
to implement the recommendations where possible. These types of outside independent
studies are used in several areas where expertise is needed in order to develop a cost
effective plan based on an analysis of the recommendations in the report. The utilization
of similar reviews in the Transportation Department, Athletic Department, and PEIMS
reporting have been helpful in the allocation of the limited resources available within the
district. The single greatest factor under consideration by the district when evaluating a
specific recommendation is cost verses the return in the form of improved efficiencies.
Except where safety is the concern, any changes must be able to demonstrate a bottom
line cost savings. By utilizing district maintenance personnel to perform the targeted
upgrades and phasing in the implementation, the financial impact to the district should be
minimized. The Maintenance Department and Energy Manager are evaluating the
recommendations in order to identify and then determine the order in which the upgrades
will be done.

 Re:     Minority Teacher Turnover
         District Goal: 5 A & B



 In 2009, the district had 712 more certified (professional) minority applicants than 2008, reflecting a 3%
 increase [See Charts]. Both African American and Native American populations showed an increase
 in applications made to the district. The percent of Asian applicants remained constant. Anglo and
 Hispanic populations making application to the district was less than in 2008.

 Increasing the number of minority applicants allows the district to hire and retain high quality personnel
 reflective of and responsive to the diverse student community. Even with a decrease in the number of
 positions available for the 2009-2010 school year, minority applicants showed an increased interest in
 Pearland ISD. We attribute this increase to the enhanced efforts to recruit at colleges and universities
 with a high population of minority students.

 Re:     Minority Teacher Turnover
         District Goal: 5C



 Compared to the 2007 baseline data, there is a 4.8% decrease in discretionary teacher turnover.
 Discretionary reasons include all those listed with the exception of death and termination. [See Teacher
 Turnover Data- Chart 1] The district had 129 classroom teacher resignations resulting in an 11.8
 percent teacher turnover rate for 2009. There was a turnover rate of 14.4% for 2008. Areas of interest
 include a decrease in teachers leaving for employment in other Houston area districts, to relocate out
 of the area or for a serious health condition/ family commitment. Teachers entering retirement was
 almost double that of last year.

 Minority teacher turnover data is reported for the 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 school years. The minority
 teacher turnover rate for 2007-2008 was 21%. For 2008-2009, there was a 1% decrease in minority
 teacher resignations. In 2007-2008, with the exception of the resignation of black teachers, resignation
 rates in all ethnic groups reflected current employee percentages. The district lost 2% more black
 teachers than were employed for that year. For 2008-2009, the resignation rates for all groups were
 mirrored by current teacher ethnic breakdown. This reflection in percentages employed versus
 percentages resigning shows a stability in minority teacher resignations. [See Minority Teacher
 Resignations- Chart 2]

 Teacher turnover data by gender was also gathered for the 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 school years.
 The ratio of male to female resignations for 2007-2008 was reflective of the actual gender breakdown
 of employed teachers showing proportionate resignations for that year. For 2008-2009, male teacher
 resignations were 3.5% less than the percentage of male teachers employed. The district retained
 male teachers at a higher rate than the previous year. [See Teacher Resignations by Gender- Chart 3]

 Since January of 2009, the district has promoted 28 employees from their current position to that of
 Teacher or Administrative/Professional. Of those listed six (21%) were minorities. In addition, one out-
 of-district minority candidate was offered a position as Assistant Principal and rejected the offer based
 on family obligations. [See In-District Minority Promotions- Chart 4]

                                              Pearland ISD
                                           Superintendent Goals
                                                 Item 7A

I.     Goal Criteria

       The Board shall see by February, 2010, brief reports on the performance of each
       functional area relative to the criteria for good performance established in February,
       2009. The report will include a review of administrative procedures in place to reduce
       the risk of fraud within the district.

II.    Overview

       There are a total of 21 identified functional areas. Of the indentified areas, 16 have been
       reviewed or are currently under review. The focus of each review is to identify areas
       where improvements can yield the greatest efficiencies for the district within given
       limitations. These may result in direct cost savings, loss prevention, improved
       accountability, greater compliance and assurance of compliance or some form of cost
       avoidance. The primary limitations are the size of the areas, district, and the limited
       available resources to review, monitor and evaluate the various functional areas.

III.   Functional Areas

       A.    Business Office: New Business Software, Tyler MUNIS, is currently being
             implemented. The new software has an enhanced audit trail which will facilitate
             reviews of financial data for the departments, campuses, and activity funds.

             1. Payroll – Automated approval system for tracking leave time has been
             implemented and integrated with the District time-keeping system, TimeClock
             Plus, and has a comprehensive electronic audit trail. The District’s time-keeping
             system is being implemented district wide and is scheduled for completion during
             the Spring 2010 semester. TimeClock Plus at the Middle School and Elementary
             School campuses is currently in the implementation phase. All other campuses
             and departments are currently using the time keeping system. A complete district
             wide review of job function codes was completed in 2009. This verified each
             district employee and their proper function within the district. Function codes
             were adjusted and reported to the State in the PEIMS report.

             2. Accounts Payable – The district’s cash handling procedures have been reviewed
             and updated with the cooperation of the Business Office. A visit was made to each
             campus and the new procedures were explained to the Bookkeeper/ Secretary. The
             updated information was also incorporated into the Pearland ISD Student Activity




                                                  176
     Funds Manual and Administrative Guidelines. Accounts Payable procedures have
     been reviewed as part of the following reviews:
                    a) Superintendent’s Expense Review
                    b) FPS Program Review
                    c) Dawson High School Activity Account Review
                    d) Pearland High School Activity Account Review
                    e) Athletic Department Review
                    f) Deputy Superintendent” Expense Review
                    g) Pearland High School Summer School Activity Fund Review

     3. Tax Office – Has not been reviewed internally

     4. Bookkeeping – High School Campus Bookkeepers have been extended to 240
     days as a result of the PHS Summer School Review. A standardized reconciliation
     process for receipts of Student Activity Funds has been implemented district wide.
     This allows for a timely accounting of handwritten receipts as well as the funds
     associated with those receipts. A copy of the comprehensive cash handling
     guidelines has been added to teacher/sponsor handbooks. Fundraising guidelines
     have been addressed in faculty meetings and with campus Administration district
     wide. A prepayment registration system was successfully tested at PHS and is
     being considered for DHS. The collection of outstanding fines and fees as well as
     assessed fees for the current year is done before the students move on within the
     registration process.

B.   Support Services:

     1. Maintenance & Operations – Provides monthly reports on work orders received
     and completed. Included is a listing of the days a work order has been pending if it
     is not completed within the month it was received. An inventory system has been
     implemented in the warehouse for tracking of items used within the district. The
     department is scheduled for an external review this June. Two supervisor positions
     have been converted to salaried positions. This has eliminated overtime costs
     associated with these positions.

     2. Food Services – The department received two external reviews this past year.
     Based on those reviews the department is now using their remote monitoring
     capabilities to increase their efficiencies with respect to site inspections. A
     schedule has been developed for each campus’s cafeteria to be remotely monitored
     twice a month. Records are kept on the observations noted during the monitoring.
     In addition physical site visits are made and inspections are preformed twice a
     year. This practice exceeds the legal requirement, however; it does comply with a
     recommendation from the Texas Department of Agriculture made during their
     audit. Monthly reports are provided by the department for review purposes.

     3. Transfers and Residencies – Is part of a larger PEIMS and Attendance Review
     currently being conducted.




                                 177
4. Transportation – Monthly reports are provided for review purposes. Accidents
and/or incidents having occurred in the prior month have been added to the report.
Additionally, as part of the Miles Per Gallon (MPG) Performance Review that has
been instituted the ten lowest performing buses for the prior month are identified,
reported, and checked as part the ongoing monitoring process. A standardized
maintenance review protocol has been instituted to check any mechanical issues
causing the low MPG performance. The Transportation Maintenance Supervisor’s
position has been converted to a salaried position. This has eliminated overtime
expenses associated with after hour responses to emergency calls. Several reviews
of department payroll functions and processes were performed resulting in a
streamlined payroll process. This also allowed for the elimination of the
department’s payroll clerk position. Investigation of a conflict of interest
allegation led to the separation from employment of the former Transportation
Maintenance Supervisor.

5. Fine Arts – Standardized Booster Club procedures have been reviewed with
sponsors in the Fine Arts Programs. This has helped the Fine Arts Booster Clubs to
become more compliant with District standards. A review of the PHS Yearbook
Activity Account and processes for oversight found the need for a greater level and
depth of oversight. The yearbook programs for both High Schools, part of the
Journalism Program, have been moved under the Fine Arts Director so that a
higher level of oversight and training can be provided to this area. Evaluation of
the this move will help to determine if the Yearbook programs at the Junior High
Schools should or should not be moved within the Fine Arts Family of programs.
This is currently being assessed.

6. Special Programs – Implemented a software interface to allow for direct upload
of data from the departments software, Special Ed Manager, into the district’s new
student database software Skyward. This eliminated the old process of entering
the same data twice, once into Special Ed Manager and then again into Skyward
(WinSchool) effectively reducing the risk of error in the District’s PEIMS
reporting to the State. Reviewed the use of Special Programs Stimulus funding
with respect to tutoring leading to a change in how the funds were to be used. The
AESOP approval path procedures were instrumental in preventing a potential
liability for the district. The system does not allow for the inputting of the tutors
into the system for approval without first creating a “vacancy’. Vacancies can
only be authorized by the HR Department. This created a flag and allowed for the
entire process to be evaluated for compliance in a number of different areas. The
first was ensuring that we were in compliance with the spending of stimulus funds.
The second was the potential of creating a number of temporary employees. HR
was able to evaluate the need and concerns then render a decision that provided the
best solution for the district. The control in effect worked and caught the error
before it became a serious problem. This also allowed for a review of all stimulus
funds spent by campuses.




                            178
7. Facilities and Energy Management – The Energy Manager has developed a
schedule for performing on-site energy audits. Additionally, in conjunction with
Technology, an audit is currently underway to determine the number of computers
and displays left on overnight at the campuses and other district facilities. The
audit is part of a study to determine the cost effectiveness of employing a Central
Office based system which will shut down all computers and displays district-wide
in order to save energy costs. The primary goal is to have a cost effective system to
control excess energy consumption in this area through a centralized process.
Energy usage is monitored utilizing a centralized system. Current data is compared
to a baseline usage established at the time the District implemented the software.
Adjustments have not been made to account for additional items added to the
campuses and facilities. An example of this would be the number of computer
systems added to a specific campus. This will increase the demand load for the
campus. However, the baseline has not been adjusted to account for the increased
number of systems on the campuses. Currently the added load is absorbed with the
district still showing a significant savings.

8. Technology – A phone inventory system is being implemented across the
district. This includes bar coding each phone so it can be scanned and its location
be physically tracked. The annually scanned campus inventory is matched up to a
report from Technology and then reconciled to the prior scanned inventory.

9. Human Resources – Currently an assessment of the capabilities of our
WinOcular program are being evaluated to determine if the district can use this
software to create a centralized tracking system. The tracking would be by job
functions listing the specific requirements for district assets and accesses. An
example of this is when someone is hired the district would have a detailed record
of what codes, keys, cell phones, email, State TEASE accounts etc. are needed
before the first start date. The district would be fully prepared for an employee on
the start date with the needed resources. This would also allow for the retrieval of
the same items and cancelation of all codes, email and like items upon separation
from the district.

10. District Campuses – Student Activity Accounts have been reviewed at both
High Schools. Standardized fundraising procedures have been reviewed on
campuses and each campus has a standard format for cash receipting and cash
handling. Faculty/Sponsor meetings now include a comprehensive review of
Student Activity Account procedures. An accountability process is in place at the
high schools with respect to Student Activity Funds.

11. Attendance Accounting – This is currently under review. We are evaluating the
attendance coding within our district for errors, misinterpretations of TEA
guidelines and coding errors missed. We have the ability to re-file with State for
prior years if we find significant errors in our coding. This will allow us to
recapture lost ADA for those years. New attendance letters have been developed
and translated into Spanish. We have adjusted procedures to be in compliance




                            179
with State requirements. Written guidance was obtained from the TEA and the
district’s attorney. This is beneficial when filing on students that have excessive
absences and has simplified the letters by separating out the 90% rule letters.

12. Cash Operations – Standardized cash handling and receipting procedures have
been established across the district. Individual training with campus secretaries
and bookkeepers has taken place. The procedures have been implemented into the
High School Employee Handbook and were covered in the faculty and sponsor
meetings.

13. Construction Operations – Has not been reviewed internally.

14. Drop-out Leaver Codes – Currently under review. New timelines and training
is being developed to improve our coding. The Attendance and Outreach Office
have been integrated into this review. The focus is not just on coding but recovery
of the drop-outs through indentifying and making contact. Training is currently
being evaluated and will include scenarios on how to find and properly code
students. Development of a step by step process as a resource for the district’s
registrars is under development.

15. Disaster Management & Recovery – Has not been reviewed internally.

16. Criminal History Background Checks – Currently Human Resource Services of
the district performs background checks on all potential new hires. Additionally,
the HRS department performs checks on volunteers. All employees needing to
operate any district vehicle has a criminal history background check performed by
the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS). This process is initiated by a
request from the District’s Transportation Department. There are no costs to the
district for the DPS reports.

17. Fixed Assets – Has not been reviewed internally.

18. Long term Debt – Has not been reviewed internally.

19. PEIMS – Currently under review. PEIMS coding, Attendance coding, Leaver
coding, and Transfers are all part of a comprehensive review designed to evaluate
our processes and accuracy in these areas. The primary goals are to service the
students and community by working to indentify students that have dropped-out
and recover as many of those students as possible to maximize ADA funding for
our district. This will Increase the assurance that we are receiving the right amount
of funding from the State. A new student database system has been implemented
this year and has added safeguards to prohibit errors that have occurred in the past.
An example being the recent discipline coding error reported back to the District
by TEA. The new system does not allow for mismatching of codes; when we
select the infraction code we cannot assign an inappropriate discipline code.




                             180
      20. Risk Management – The function of Risk Management is within the Human
      Resource Department. Until the end of 2009 the function has been a part of the
      benefits coordinator’s duties. With the expansion of the district over recent years
      the need to have a higher level of field work is a concern. A memo to the
      Superintendent addressed this concern and offered a solution which was adopted.
      The Facilities Manager was moved to the HR Department and is assuming those
      duties. Once trained in Risk Management and prevention, regular safety audits can
      be conducted throughout the District’s facilities during regular site visits for
      energy audits. The Executive Director of Human Resources has been tasked with
      obtaining and scheduling the necessary training for the expanded role of the
      Facilities Manager.

      21. Athletics – The Athletics Department has recently been reviewed by an outside
      review team and by the District’s Coordinator of Internal Controls.
      Recommendations have been made and reviewed with the Interim Athletic
      Director and the Deputy Superintendent of the District. Currently the department
      is working to address and correct the deficiencies noted in the review. The
      department is being restructured to allow shifting of duties which allows for a
      change in focus. This change will facilitate a move in the direction of primarily
      one of oversight. The operational functions will move to the respective campuses.


IV.   Conclusion

      The focus of this report is to identify the areas were the district is working to make
      positive changes. Currently a Risk Assessment is being performed on the all of the
      functional areas. The results will be reported to the newly formed District Review
      Committee. A more formal review schedule will developed using the results from
      the Risk Assessment. The assessment is due back from the department heads on
      February 22, 2010 and the results will be complied and a report will be provided to
      the review committee on February 26, 2010. Typically a review schedule of this
      nature is based on a three year plan.

                                           Superintendent Goals
                                                 Item 7B

I.     Goal Criteria

       The Board shall see by February 2010, an administrative briefing on functional areas
       targeted for improvement by February 2011, including any likely budgetary savings or
       needed expenditures for accomplishing improvements.

II.    Overview
       The following areas have been “targeted” for close evaluation or continued monitoring
       for the purpose of improvement:

       A.     Attendance coding
       B.     PEIMS coding
       C.     Electronic Ticket Sales – Athletics and Fine Arts
       D.     Energy Consumption/savings
       E.     HR – Centralized Employment Process
       F.     Transportation Fuel Costs
       G.     On-line Registration for returning Students.

       The goal of these evaluations is not to simply cut costs to the district. In the case of the
       attendance and PEIMS coding the aim is to generate a higher level of revenue from the
       State. This will help to ensure the District is obtaining its fair share of revenue. In other
       areas the focus is on control of assets and resources, as well as a possibility for
       repurposing personnel to meet the changing requirements of the District. This can be
       accomplished by increased utilization of technology where practical. Finally, the ability
       to cut operational expenses without impacting services, safety, or utilization of needed
       resources, in other words improved efficiency.

III.   Functional Areas

       A.    Attendance Coding:

                       Perform an evaluation of past attendance coding for errors and a
                       resubmission of prior years reports if feasible. It is the goal to find a
                       similar percentage of funding as a sister District to the North. Spring ISD
                       was able to recapture 2.1 million dollars in the first year they did their
                       review. In the second year they were able to recapture 1.3 million dollars
                       of a total of 3.4 million dollars in two years. Spring ISD is approximately
                       twice the size of Pearland ISD in number of campuses and student




                                                  182
     enrollment. In addition to evaluating the coding issues, a training program
     is being developed. This program will include attendance coding, Leaver
     coding, residency verification, and transfers. It will employ strategies for
     tracking down students and proper coding. When we can use a “Present”
     code rather than “excused” the district receives the ADA from the State.
     Additionally, an evaluation designed to address needs associated with the
     expansion of our intermittent home bound program is will be performed.
     The primary costs associated with this specific review will be the time
     invested by the attendance team and training costs for the attendance
     clerks and registrars. There may be some programming costs if a need
     arises to make modifications to our Student Database Software. It is
     difficult if not impossible to know or forecast those types of changes until
     the challenges are evaluated. However, the coding issues can still be
     corrected and the training implemented with the system remaining as it is.
     It would be anticipated that software changes would be designed to be
     safeguards against keying or data entry errors.

B.   PEIMS Coding

     An evaluation of the Districts PEIMS coding is designed to determine
     were the district can make adjustments in order to improve our reporting
     to the State. We can evaluate our weights (adjustments) to determine if
     there are areas that need to be reconsidered.

C.   Electronic Ticket Sales

     This is being evaluated for several purposes.
             1. It increases access to District events.
             2. Reduces the cash on hand at district facilities.
             3. Provides for an electronic accounting of season and reserved
                ticket sales.
             4. Reduce the potential for fraud from ticket sales.
             5. Repurpose man hours into other duties and functions.

     The cost to provide the infrastructure to support the system is
     approximately $9000. Currently the district has requested a hard quote to
     have this work performed by our vendor. Acquisition costs are currently
     being explored by the Fine Arts and Athletic offices. The primary
     expense after providing the infrastructure costs appears to be the scanners
     needed to process the tickets. The cost per scanner is $1399 each with 6 to
     8 scanners needed for startup. This system can be expanded to allow for
     Fine Arts theater productions, requiring the purchase of 2 or 3 additional
     scanners. Annual software maintenance fee of $699 and the in-house
     setup is $499. Total initial start-up costs would be approximately $19,910
     with an annual fee of $699. Additional costs to expand to Fines Arts
     productions would be $2798 to $4197..




                         183
D.   Energy Consumption/Savings

     There are a number of areas being evaluated for cost savings in relation to
     energy usage.
            1. Deployment of software allowing the Technology Department
               to shutdown computers across the district after hours. The
               energy manager has been performing audits/counts by campus
               to verify the number of systems being left on after hours. The
               counts have been broken down into CPU’s, Display/Monitors
               on, and Displays/Monitors asleep. The draw for each is 120
               watts for the CPU, 150 for the monitor on, and 15 for the
               Monitor in sleep mode. Currently the district has approximately
               6000 computers on the network. The nightly per unit cost for
               each is .286 cents and .036 cents respectively. Currently the
               average number of computers found on per campus is 131 and
               the number of monitors left on or in sleep mode are 175.
               Weekly costs are $2.407 per CPU and $.301 per display. Over
               the course of the school year, 36 weeks, the cost per unit is
               $86.659 per CPU and $10.832 per Monitor. Using the average
               for each type of equipment left on and taking into account there
               are 23 campuses there are on average 3006 CPU’s and 4016
               displays that are left on.

               Campuses are based on 36 weeks
                         3006 x 86.659 = 260496.954
                         4016 x 10.832 = 43501.312
                         Campuses total 303998.266

               Support Facilities is based on 52 weeks.
                          151 x 125.164 = 18899.76
                          202 x 15.652 = 3161.704
                   Support Facilities Total 22061.46

               Total Estimated Savings is $326059.73

               Starting in February 2010 the district will be testing “Smart
               Power Strips”. This will allow the district to shutdown vending
               machines, coffee makers, copiers, and other on networked
               equipment during non use hours.
               The district is also currently evaluating the cost effectiveness of
               installing a system to stabilize the power flow to the HVAC
               pumps and air carrier motors. The estimated reduction in power
               consumption is claimed to be in the 25 to 30 percent range. An
               evaluation of this claim is currently under review.




                        184
E.   HR – Centralized Employment Center

     The goals of the program are to improve district efficiency with respect to
     new hires and the district being prepared for the employee to start work
     on the first day of employment. Additionally, to provide a tracking
     system of access codes, email accounts, TEASE accounts, facility keys,
     phones, laptop computers and other resources provided to the employee
     during employment. The system will allow for the district to identify
     assets and resources needed by job classification. Additionally, the
     district will be able to retrieve the assets should there be a separation
     from employment occur. The initial estimated cost for a “turn-key”
     solution is between $50,000 and $60,000.

F.   Transportation Fuel Costs

     This is a continuation of a program started at the beginning of the
     2009/2010 school. The miles per gallon (MPG) for the district’s bus fleet
     at the beginning of the evaluation period were 6.2 MPG. Currently the
     fleet is over 8.5 MPG. The expected annual savings from the monitoring
     program is in the range of $100,000 to $130,000. The cost of fuel per
     gallon will have an impact on the actual dollars saved. The program
     includes mechanical checks and monitoring as well as driver education
     and policy enforcement. The district is now using on-board data from the
     school buses engine control module (ECM) to monitor, top speed, average
     speed, and idle times. Information downloaded is shared with our drivers
     and personally reviewed where a specific concern is noted in the data.
     The Transportation Department is also testing what is called an ECO 4
     device. This is a device that is placed in the fuel line and is claimed to
     improve fuel economy. The district was provided 4 units at zero cost for
     testing purposes.

G.   On-line Registration for returning Students

     Evaluation of the current registration process shows a very labor intensive
     process. It currently involves the creation of a paper “registration packet”
     for each enrolled student. The district is evaluating the viability of
     moving to an on-line registration for returning students. The new
     Skyward software has the capability to allow for this type of process. The
     Technology Department has sent a review team to Wiley ISD to observe
     their process. That district uses the same Skyward system as Pearland
     does and has been doing on-line registration for a number of years. The
     benefits to the district would be the elimination of a large labor intensive




                         185
paper process and the inherent cost associated with that type of system.
Parents would be able to verify registration information on-line either
from home or from the campus. The district registrar would then review
the data before submission into the Skyward system. The end result
would be less data entry on the part of the employee and more of a data
check process. This system seems to work well in the Wiley ISD system
but would need to be tested in our district, probably at the Middle School
or Jr. High School level. Direct savings would be in paper costs and
greater efficiency of the district employee’s time.

In order to increase enrollment in Advanced Placement, the following is recommended:
       PSAT testing for all 10th and 11th grade students
           o To recognize readiness for Advanced Placement
           o To prepare students for timed, college level testing
           o To increase the number of National Merit Scholars
       Training teachers, students, and counselors in the benefits of AP classes and exams
       Advanced teacher training such as: APSI, Laying the Foundation, AP workshops so
       that coursework continues to be intellectually stimulating
       AP Merit Pay for teachers
       Periodic internal AP course syllabus audit
       Use multiple forms of communication to clearly articulate the advantages of Advanced
       Placement

Enrollment in Pre-Advanced Placement classes has continued to increase without a
significant impact from the no pass-no play board decision. The chart shows enrollment
trends for the past few years. Currently, approximately 37% of GDHS ninth graders are taking
a Pre-AP class and approximately 26% of SSNGC ninth graders are enrolled in Pre-AP.

In order to increase the enrollment in Pre-Advanced Placement classes:
       More clearly articulate the benefits of Pre-Advanced Placement to middle school and
       junior high students and parents
       Revise the requirements for placement/retention in 5th-8th grade Advanced classes so
       that more students have the opportunity to prepare for Advanced classes in high
       school.
       Provide specific teacher training to effectively maintain the rigor of coursework so that
       high achieving students want to participate in Pre-AP.
       Communicate clearly between all partners in education: students, parents, teachers,
       counselors, administrators, and Advanced Academics.

 Objective 3
Increase the number of students graduating under the Distinguished Achievement Plan.

Over time, the number of DAP (Distinguished Achievement Graduates) has increased. School
year 2006 showed a dramatic increase in DAP graduates, and increases proportionate to
enrollment growth has continued.

In order to increase the number of DAP graduates:
       More clearly articulate the benefits of DAP to junior high students and parents
       Use the Texas Performance Standards Project as a means of obtaining the product
       component of DAP
       Consider the development of a class that directs, guides, and supervises the DAP
       product, as it is the measure that is currently an inhibitor to completion of DAP
       requirements

Interest and enrollment in Dual Credit has increased over the past few years. Glenda Dawson
High School will offer Dual Credit classes this year. The program is still too new to establish
enrollment trends.

Dual Credit has become increasingly popular with students and parents as a means to attain
college credits at low cost and to provide opportunities for advanced high school course work
and career preparation. This year Advanced Academics and Alvin Community College have
begun to address DC issues by both large and small group joint meetings in order to provide
a clearer understanding of dual credit, to provide a higher quality of program, and to provide
greater student/parent/staff satisfaction.

In order to increase the enrollment in Dual Credit classes, the following is recommended:
       Revision of PISD student course selection handbook to include better description of
       student expectations and grading
       Revision of ACC Dual Credit handbook to include better description of student
       expectations and grading
       Electronic posting of course syllabi
       Revision of registration procedures and joint participation in DC registration meetings
       Advertisement of the benefits of Dual Credit
       Consideration of additional course offerings
       Consideration of summer learning opportunities
