SUBJECT: September 30, 1999 Quarterly Status Report on Capital
         Programs

Attached is the Quarterly Status Report on Capital Programs. Both the Bond
Funded Projects and the Capital Projects Fund reports provide a brief summary of
the projects and summary financial information. All of the financial information
provided here is as of September 30, 1999. However, School Board actions and
project activity since September 30 are reflected. Detailed financial information on
all of the projects is available in the Finance Department. The development of these
reports continues to be a cooperative effort by Facilities & Operations and the
Finance Department.

Capital Projects Fund (Pay-As-You-Go)

The Capital Projects Fund (Pay-As-You-Go) Report provides information on the
Pay-Go projects at each location. The status of each project is noted as completed
(C), ongoing (O), or pending (P). The budgeted column identifies the specific
budget amount for a particular project or notes that funds for a project came from
centrally budgeted funds. The total expenditures for each project and each location
are reported as of September 30, 1999. This report has changed since last
quarter. In previous reports, the budgeted amounts were not reported and the
financial information included both the expenditures and encumbrances. The new
format also includes summary information in the last two pages. This information
allows us to review the total expenditures by category. It is particularly helpful when
reviewing centrally budgeted accounts, such as relocatables, grounds upkeep,
concrete repairs, etc.

The FY00 Capital Projects Fund totaled $5,171,739. This included $4,160,000
approved as part of the FY00 budget, $818,408 of encumbrances brought forward
(that will be expended in FY00), and $193,331 in carry-over funds from FY99. As of
September 30, $853,124 or 16.5% of the total had been expended. A total of 110
Pay-As-You-Go projects had been identified in FY00. As of September 30, 64 (or
58.2%) of these projects have been completed.
The Bond Funded Projects Report provides information on the specific projects.
 This includes the funding source, start and completion dates, the major vendors,
summary financial information and remarks. The financial information shows the
approved project budget, the expenditures and encumbrances, and the balance.
The balance figure reported for each project reflects the total unencumbered funds
available for the project. The transfer figure reflects transfers to or from the project
contingency account.

Transfers to or from the system-wide Construction Reserve account are
summarized at the end of the report. The Construction Reserve funds will fluctuate
over time based on unforeseen savings and/or expenditures.
During the quarter, $206,995 was added to the Reserve account and $314,470 was
deducted.

The format of this report has also changed since the last report. As part of the
performance measurement process, the phase of each project is noted. Also, a
funding summary is provided for each project indicating the specific bond, transfers
to or from the construction reserve, and County funding (when applicable). The
Summary section provides more detailed information on the project and includes
the fiscal changes since the last report.

                             ARLINGTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS

                    ISSUES – 2000 VIRGINIA GENERAL ASSEMBLY

       These positions in the Arlington Public Schools Legislative Package for the 2000
Virginia General Assembly are aligned with the Arlington Public Schools 1999-2005
Strategic Plan.

STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT – All Arlington Public School students will demonstrate rising
achievement as measured by increasingly positive Standards of Learning (SOL) assessment
results and by selected performance assessments, and the gap in achievement between African
American students and white students and between Hispanic students and white students will be
eliminated.

Issue                      Desired Outcome
Programs for At-Risk Four- Legislation should be passed to provide more flexibility to
Year Olds                  school divisions in their use of funding for these programs.
                           Allowing school divisions to use a 50-50 match rather than a
                           composite index match would provide this flexibility.
Remediation Programs       Funding should be increased for programs for remediation for
                           students who did not pass the SOL tests or who are at risk of not
                           passing the SOL tests.
AP/IB Tests                Funding should be provided to pay the cost of Advanced
                           Placement and International Baccalaureate tests as the State
                           Board of Education has recommended that these tests be used to
                           meet high school diploma requirements.
Funding for Governor’s The state should resume the payment of the entire amount of the
Schools Summer Programs    summer Governor’s Schools.


CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT – The Arlington Public Schools curriculum will be
designed to ensure that every student participates successfully in a rich and rigorous curriculum
that values and addresses cultural diversity, expands upon the Virginia Standards of Learning,
and uses technology as an instructional tool.

Technology Funding             A stable, permanent mechanism should be established for state
                               funding for educational technology.


EVALUATION AND ACCOUNTABILITY – The Arlington Public Schools will
systematically evaluate personnel, schools, and programs to spur continuous improvement
throughout the system.

SOL Test Administration and Funding should be provided for local school divisions to support
Analysis                    the coordination and analysis of the required SOL testing while
                            maintaining local flexibility.
TEACHING QUALITY – The Arlington Public Schools will recruit and retain teachers and
administrators of high quality and will provide intensive and sustained professional development
for all teachers and administrators.

Cost of Competing              The funding formula that takes into consideration the cost of
                               competing for teachers in Planning District 8 should be restored
                               to the level recommended in the November 1995 JLARC study.
National Board Awards          The awards for National Board Certification for teachers that
                               were legislated during the 1999 session of the General Assembly
                               should be fully funded.
Teacher Mentor Programs        Additional funding should be provided to local school divisions
                               to comply with the provisions of legislation passed by the 1999
                               General Assembly mandating teacher mentors for all first-year
                               teachers.


COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT – The Arlington Public Schools will engage and involve
Arlington parents, staff, and community in ways that accomplish the strategic goals.

School Health Services         Additional funding should be provided to localities to meet the
                               increased need for school health services.
School Resource Officers       The amount of funding for matching grants to employ school
                               resource officers in the public schools should be increased.


      The remaining issues in the Arlington Public Schools Legislative Positions for the
2000 Virginia Assembly are Increased Support and Local Control.


INCREASED SUPPORT - The Arlington School Board believes that increased State support
should be provided to localities in the following areas:

Lottery Revenues               Lottery revenues should be returned to local school divisions
                               with the hold harmless provision continued.
School Construction            A permanent source of school construction funding should be
                               identified that would allow school divisions to use the funding
                               for construction, renovation, and debt service.
Tax Revenues for Localities    Appropriate action should be taken to return a portion of state
                               revenues to localities and/or authorize alternative taxing
                               mechanisms for localities.
LOCAL CONTROL – The Arlington School Board believes that elected school boards should
have the responsibility for decision making concerning local issues.

Educational Alternatives      Any decisions to establish alternatives to present forms of public
                              education should be the sole and exclusive prerogatives of local
                              school boards. The Arlington Schools have a 25-year history of
                              providing a wide variety of choices for parents and students with
                              a number of alternative programs in addition to neighborhood
                              schools.
Home Schooled Students        Local school board control regarding the part-time enrollment
                              and participation in extracurricular activities of home schooled
                              students should be continued. Present Arlington Schools policy
                              permits any student who is a resident of Arlington County to
                              enroll on a tuition basis in the summer school, extended day, or
                              Career Center enrichment programs.
Programs to Add Teachers      Initiatives to add teacher to the public schools should be made
                              flexible so additional teachers can be used in a variety of ways.
                              Many Arlington schools are already overcrowded, so there is no
                              space to add classes.
Public School Calendar        Control of the public school calendar should be returned to local
                              school boards. As more time is needed for remediation, school
                              divisions should have the flexibility to set school calendars.
Seat Belts on School Buses    Any decisions on the use of seat belts on school buses should be
                              made by local school boards. The recent federal study on this
                              issue did not recommend the use of seat belts on school buses.
Student Safety Initiatives    Student safety initiatives in the schools should be the
                              responsibility of local school boards. Working with school
                              resource officers and school staffs, local boards can make
                              decisions based on the unique needs in each division.
Suspensions and Expulsions    No state action should be taken that diminishes or infringes upon
                              the statutory authority of local school boards to suspend, expel,
                              and exclude students from school attendance. Arlington has a
                              number of programs for disruptive students and provides an
                              educational alternative for students who have been expelled.
Use of Internet by Students   No state action should be taken that would impose Internet
                              filtering on public schools. The development of Acceptable Use
                              Policies that meet local needs and concerns is a more appropriate
                              approach.

                noted that the League of Women Voters and the County Council of PTAs

Arlington School Board minutes             - Page 4 of 6 -                      November 4, 1999
                Dr. Smith noted that the item would be presented for information on December 2,
                and staff would provide the School Board with written information by November
                15. Dr. Smith stated that staff would also mail the report to PTA presidents.

        2.      Class Size Report

                Ms. Tuccillo presented the report on class sizes for all Arlington schools,
                remarking that historically the report has focused on outlier class sizes. Ms.
                Hynes noted that more classes for the 1999-2000 school year appeared to contain
                classes with 30 or more students. Ms. Tuccillo advised that some of these classes
                may be team-taught.

        3.      Status Report on Personnel Employed for the 1999-2000 School Year

                Dr. Hobbs presented a status report on teaching personnel employed for the 1999-
                2000 school year, compared with teaching staff employed for the 1998-1999
                school year. The study compared the number of newly hired versus returning
                teachers, and teachers’ years of experience, educational level, and ethnicity on a
                local and national basis. Dr. Hobbs noted that while the percentage of African
                American teachers increased this year, the percentage of Asian teachers
                decreased. Dr. Hobbs reported that Arlington Public Schools teacher ethnicity is
                proportionally comparable to national data obtained from the 1990 census. Board
                members thanked Dr. Hobbs for her presentation.

        4.      Gunston Phase II Schematic Design

                Architect Joe Wells presented the schematic design for Phase II of the Gunston
                construction project. Improvements include an auxiliary gym and lockers.
                Additionally, the theater, which is owned by the County, will also be renovated.
                Mechanical improvements will include HVAC, electrical, and plumbing. A
                number of administrative facilities will be moved to WETA, allowing
                consolidation of the footprint of the theater area, which will be completely
                independent and secured from the school. In response to questions from Ms.
                Hynes and Ms. Garvey, Mr. Wells responded that while parking is adequate for
                the facility, it could be problematic if a number of evening activities are scheduled
                to occur simultaneously. In response to a question from Ms. Mickey about
                add/alternate projects, Mr. Wells stated that if the budget permits, HVAC work
                for the gym may be done during Phase II. Ms. Garvey noted that this item was
                scheduled for action on December 2.

G.      NEW BUSINESS:

        Ms. Garvey moved, in the matter of Grievance FY 00-01 that the Board make its
        determination based upon the written record, seconded by Ms. Hynes. The motion was
        approved in a vote of 4 - 0.

                       School Board Work Session on Multi-Use Facilities
                                     November 30, 1999

Pursuant to a previously approved motion, the Arlington School Board convened on Tuesday,
November 30, 1999, at 5:10 p.m. at 1425 North Quincy Street, Arlington, Virginia.

       Present were:

       Libby Garvey, Chair
       Frank K. Wilson, Vice-Chair
       Elaine S. Furlow, Member
       Mary Hughes Hynes, Member
       Maria Voultsides, Clerk
       Dr. Robert G. Smith, Superintendent
       Dr. Alvin Crawley, Assistant Superintendent, Student Services
       Kathleen F. Grove, Assistant Superintendent, Instruction
       Alton Hlavin, Assistant Superintendent, Facilities and Operation
       Susan G. Robinson, Assistant Superintendent, Finance
       Lisa Farbstein, Director, School and Community Relations
       Marjorie Tuccillo, Director, Administrative Services
       Steve Larson, Facilities Administrative Officer
       Mary Beth Chambers, Financial Analyst
       Kathleen Langan, Director, Design and Construction Services
       Greg Luckmire, Architect

       Dr. Smith explained that the primary purpose of the meeting was to determine:

       •   whether it would be feasible and practical to work collaboratively with the County on
           conversion of the Reed facility to include a replacement for the Westover Library
           and for school system needs;
       •   whether Arlington Public Schools should include this project in the CIP; and
       •   if Reed is included in the CIP, how the facility will be used.

       Mr. Hlavin reviewed the intent of the conceptual study and the possible uses for the Reed
       facility, and architect Greg Luckmire presented three conceptual study options and their
       associated costs to the Board.

       In response to a question from Ms. Garvey, Dr. Smith noted that options for the Reed
       facility did not presently include use as a school subsequent to the Board’s direction to
       staff last spring to exclude this site from consideration as such. However, if a subsequent
       decision were made to convert the facility for classroom use, up to 30 classrooms could
       be constructed.

       In response to a question from Mr. Wilson, Mr. Luckmire noted that the existing
       Westover Library would require significant work and upgrades to remain in its present

        location. Additionally, tripling the existing size of the facility at that location would be
        feasible, but not desirable.

        Mr. Hlavin reviewed other APS multi-use projects, including Langston in the 2000 bond,
        and Arlington Mill in the 2004 bond. He noted that the County has indicated that its
        Board may not consider funding these two projects if the School Board did not agree to
        relocate the Westover library in the Reed facility. In response to a question from Ms.
        Furlow as to whether the Langston project could proceed as a school-only funded project,
        Mr. Hlavin noted that the project could not be scaled down to serve the purposes it
        currently serves.

        After Board discussion, Dr. Smith stated that staff would include the Reed facility in the
        upcoming CIP for Board discussion purposes.

I.      ADJOURNMENT

        The meeting adjourned at 6:40 p.m.

governance issues that would be open to the public but not televised.

Dr. Smith reviewed the process leading to the development of the policy on boundary changes,
noting that the policy is scheduled for Board action on December 2.

The following speaker addressed the Board:

Erin Devine, President, Jamestown PTA, noting that the policy has improved with subsequent
drafts; requesting that the community be involved in the development of boundary change
options; and in support of grandfathering provisions.

Board members held a general discussion regarding whether or not the inclusion of a number of
definitions and minor changes would help clarify the policy and process.

At the conclusion of the public hearing, Ms. Garvey noted that the policy was scheduled for
action on December 2, and that no speakers would be taken at that time.

At 7:28 p.m., Ms. Garvey called for a recess before beginning the work session on board
