          May 17, 2011

                                   Ms. Grundmeyer said all agricultural departments in the state must meet nine California
                                   Department of Education program quality standards; standards 10, 11 and 12 are
                                   optional. Ms. Grundmeyer was pleased to report that Norco High School is one of two
                                   chapters in Southern California to meet all 12 standards. Ms. Grundmeyer introduced
                                   2010-11 and 2011-12 Norco High FFA Chapter President Kristen Smith and said Kristen

                                   County FFA.

                                   Kristen introduced Norco High FFA Chapter members Lauren Pulver, Tori Powell and
                                   Madison Santana. Kristen reported on the many chapter accomplishments. She was
                                   pleased to report that eighteen chapter members received their State FFA Degree, a
                                   record setter for the group. Kristen reviewed Norco FFA community services, among
                                   those were cleaning Norco horse trails and running a canned food drive. Kristen
                                   introduced a video presentation of Norco FFA activities.

                                   Mrs. Sciortino congratulated Ms. Grundmeyer and students on their accomplishments.
                                   She said Norco FFA students do a great job and always make us proud.

V-B Anti-Bullying/Franklin Elementary Mrs. Sciortino introduced Franklin Elementary School Principal Charla Capps for an
                                      anti-bullying presentation entitled, “Step Up 2 Bullying.”

                                   Ms. Capps said the school’s Step Up 2 Bullying Program emerged after three sixth grade
                                   students approached her about their desire to stand up to bullying. She introduced
                                   students Gabby Hanson, Ashlyn LeRose and Kairiq Triche for a presentation.

                                   Students shared their experiences with bullying and introduced a video presentation of
                                   Step Up 2 Bullying Week activities. Students were grateful to the Board for the
                                   opportunity to present and provided each a Franklin Elementary School Step Up 2
                                   Bullying t-shirt.

                                   Mr. Zickefoose commended students for a job well done, and Mrs. Sciortino applauded
                                   their initiative to combat bullying.

VI-SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT         Dr. Bechler said the District’s Technology Task Force presented their findings and
                                   recommendations at the last Board meeting and that tonight members of the English
                                   Learner (EL) Task Force would do the same. He introduced EL Task Force Chair and
                                   High School Principal Sam Buenrostro.

                                   Mr. Buenrostro reported one reason CNUSD has been identified for Program
                                   Improvement is the lack of progress in the English Learner (EL) subgroup. He said
                                   raising the achievement for ELs is a challenge for school districts throughout the state
                                   and the role of the District’s EL Task Force is to make recommendations for
                                   improvement. He said the EL Task Force is comprised of District administrators,
                                   teachers and parents.

                                   Mr. Buenrostro said the last four months the group met and identified recommendations
                                   in seven major categories: Leadership; curriculum and instruction; professional
                                   development; collaboration; monitoring and intervention; assessment and reporting; and
                                   parent involvement. He said the group would like to see the following implemented the
                                   2011-12 school year.

                                   1.   Publicize and promote an English Learner Master Plan. Involve all District
                                        stakeholders in updating the Master Plan created thirteen years ago and create a
                                        program to serve as a model across the state.

          CNUSD Board Minutes
          May 17, 2011

                                     2.   Districts and sites will utilize EIA/ELAP funds to hire TSAs, instructional
                                          specialists, and site coaches to train all teachers, administrators, and support
                                          staff in the implementation and monitoring of the Sheltered Instruction
                                          Observation Protocol (SIOP). Support is needed throughout the District to better
                                          aid all EL teachers and, ultimately, EL students.
                                     3.   District and sites will provide time to collaborate, in addition to PTT/PLC time,
                                          on EL issues. Staff needs additional collaboration time to discuss issues specific to
                                          ELs. This collaboration provides an opportunity to monitor student achievement and
                                          proficiency levels, analyze data, develop needed interventions, and create common
                                          formative assessments.
                                     4.   All ELs (CELDT levels 1-5) in elementary sites will receive their daily state-
                                          mandated ELD instructional 30 minutes per appropriate groupings. This area
                                          needs to be looked at as it is not consistent across the District.
                                     5.   District will develop systemic summative benchmark assessments for ELD to
                                          guide and inform student placement, instruction, and intervention options.
                                          Having a District benchmark each trimester allows staff to frequently monitor ELD
                                          students and adjust and differentiate instruction accordingly at a more rapid pace to
                                          better meet student needs.
                                     6.   District will dedicate at least one percent of EIA funds to develop parent
                                          partnerships by offering trainings, workshops, and meetings; increasing
                                          communication; and informing parents regarding career and college readiness.

                                     In closing, Mr. Buenrostro said the EL Task Force is eager and excited to make a
                                     difference. In response to an inquiry by Mrs. Sciortino, Mr. Buenrostro said that
                                     approximately twenty percent of District students are ELLs. Mrs. Sciortino expressed
                                     appreciation to the group for their presentation and hard work.

                                     Dr. Bechler commended Centennial and Corona High Schools Puente Program students
                                     for their success with the CAHSEE. He said 65 of 66 Centennial High students, and 27
                                     of 28 Corona High students, passed the English Language Arts portion of the CAHSEE
                                     their first attempt. Dr. Bechler said that 2011 preliminary CAHSEE results have been
                                     released and information will be sent in the next Friday Mailout.

                                     Dr. Bechler reported that over one-hundred business, college/university, and school
                                     district representatives attended the District’s College and Career Readiness Initiative
                                     kick-off held May 5. He said feedback, both internally and externally, has been positive.

                                     Dr. Bechler called on Mrs. Mata for a budget update. Mrs. Mata said that in his May
                                     Revise released yesterday, Governor Brown proposed to keep education flat funded in
                                     2011-12 assuming the Legislature approves his proposal to extend the current taxes
                                     temporarily until these go out to the public for a vote. If the Legislature fails to place the
                                     taxes on the ballot, Mrs. Mata said discussions will begin on a “Plan B.” Mrs. Mata
                                     mentioned that Assembly Bill 3632 shifted mental health services from the county back
                                     to school districts. She said the Governor’s May Revise includes reimbursement funding
                                     to school districts for these services.

                                 District more flexibility in selecting the most appropriate contractor team, which may not
                                 necessarily be the lowest bidder. Mr. Rozzi said that Resolution No. 94 applies to the
                                 temporary campus for the Chavez Elementary School Expansion Project and that
