13.   REPORTS OF SUPERINTENDENT AND STAFF                                              **Information/Discussion

      13A.       Code Red

T. Peluso informed the Board of some recommendations given to the schools regarding performing Code Red
drills. He stated that some classrooms on some of the campuses were using a piece of 4’ x 8’ plywood to
barricade the inside of classroom doors to block the vision through the small window on the door. In some cases
the plywood actually propped open the door while the teacher was trying to gather the students to a corner of the
room and maintain quiet. The window could be covered otherwise, and the plywood could become a danger in
the classroom. Black out material is being considered for the doors and large windows on the opposite side of
some of the classrooms. The San Jose swat team and fire department recommend against the use of the plywood
in the classroom.

      13B.       Inclusion Update

P. Gregory provided the Board with an Inclusion Update. Inclusion is the process for mainstreaming special
education students. During the first semester of 2007-08 an Inclusion Task Force was formed and recommended
a workshop inclusion model that uses two general education teachers and one special education teacher. The plan
is to implement inclusion over four years starting with ninth graders in 2008-09. The special education director
and resource specialist met with each principal and vice principal to address questions and concerns. As a result
from the feedback from the sites, the schools could choose to implement inclusion in either language arts or math
or both. Branham, Del Mar and Prospect will implement in Language Arts, and Leigh and Westmont will
implement in both Language Arts and Math. During the second semester an implementation committee formed to
address needs and formulate a process, identify teachers and provide professional development. She shared the
number of students potentially participating and what the process may look like next year.

      13C.       District Bond Rating

R. Farber and P. Gaffney went to New York and presented the district to bond rating agencies. She reported in
2002-03 31% of the assessed value of single family homes in CUHSD were below $100,000 and 9% were over
$500,000. In 2007-08 22% of the homes were below $100,000 and 33% were over $500,000. The median
assessed value in 2007 for properties in the Campbell Union High School District is $331,046. In 2005 it was
$287,484, and in 2006 it was $313.344. The presentations went very well and the district should have the results
in early May.
