        •Staff Report on Employee Benefit Committee (EBC) - Mrs. Colleen Fanciullo,
        Manager, Human Resources

        Mrs. Fanciullo gave an overview of the health and welfare benefits offered to
        employees. The report included strategies used to lower plan costs, stop loss renewal,
        Blue Cross Prudent Buyer Network which replaced Foundation Network in 2004 and
        the monitoring of student dependents. During the benefit reenrollment period last June
        more than 450 dependents were dropped from the Foundation and Kaiser plans and
        more than 500 were dropped from the dental plan. This allowed a renewal rate savings
        of $1.8 million dollars. The report also projected savings for 2006-2007, further cost
        containment and other areas of concentration such as the Cafeteria 125 plan, and the
        Wellness Program.

        Mrs. Reynolds thanked Mrs. Fanciullo and the benefits department for doing such a
        great job! Mr. Garcia also thanked them.


ORAL PETITIONS

    Mr. Garcia opened oral petitions at 6:46 p.m. The following community members
    addressed the Board of Education:

    1. Ms. Janice Allen - Elementary Director for SJTA. She is speaking on behalf of Mrs.
    Marlene Mattoon, SJTA president who is away at a conference. She thanked Mrs.
    Fanciullo for attending their rep council meeting last night and presenting the benefits report
    to them. She also wanted to remind the Board that SJTA members benefits are paid for
    from their 67% fair share. She also stated that there needs to be a meeting to discuss the
    concerns and dissatisfaction of a majority of school sites regarding the usage and
    implementation of both benchmark tests and the District’s pacing calendars. If these tools
    are to be used districtwide then consistent, well thought out guidelines are needed in the best
    interests of all students in SJUSD. When Mrs. Mattoon returns she will be contacting the
    Superintendent and the Director of Curriculum to schedule a meeting as soon as possible.
    SJTA’s rep council would like to have Mrs. Jeanne Herrick attend the March rep council
    meeting to discuss these issues with the them, hear their concerns and answer questions.
    They appreciate the opportunity to address these two issues which has caused major dissent
    between classroom teachers.

    Mr. Iglesias said that he looks forward to the discussion on these two items. For our
    Program Improvement Schools it is a requirement that we move towards benchmark testing
    and pacing calendars and also best practices in terms of districts who are making significant
    change and gains in student performances. There are aspects of it that need to be talked
    through and wants to work together on it. Mrs. Allen stated that they do want teacher input
    particularly in regards to aligning benchmarks with the pacing calendars which tends to be a
    major problem.

    There needs to be a meeting regarding the usage addressed the Board of Education on
    behalf of San José Teachers Association. Mrs. Marlene Mattoon, SJTA president, is away
    at a conference
BOARD MINUTES- February 16, 2006                                                      Page 3

      2. Mr. Chris Henriques - Parent at Trace. He spoke regarding the construction at Trace
      being potentially delayed and expressed his disappointment in this. He asked that the
      District step up the timeline and stay on task because they desperately need a new facility
      and the existing facility needs to be converted from a pod style to a more adequate facility.
      He understands that the money is available and that is not the reason for the delay. Mr.
      Steve Adamo, Manager of School Construction assured Mr. Henriques that the construction
      is on schedule and there is no delay. We have begun the master planning process and we
      have an architect working on that. We just finished the programming portion of that and are
      putting a rough magnitude cost of that to establish a budget. Late summer is the earliest we
      can begin site work.

      3. Cecile Falk - Teacher at Castillero Middle School. She is hugely disappointed that there
      is no retirement incentive package this year. She has thirty-one years in the district and feels
      that her service to the district is not valued. The former superintendent after only seven
      years got lifetime benefits, other employees in previous years also received incentive
      packages. Now, all she gets is a one percent on the salary scale that is paltry. She is retiring
      in June and feels hurt and disappointed. Others feel the same way.
      4. James Marshall - Teacher speaking for Gayle Kludt who could not attend the meeting.
      He read her statement. She is upset that there is no retirement incentive package being
      offered this year. She has taught in the District for thirty-four years.

      Mr. Garcia asked Mr. Iglesias to speak to the issue of retirement incentives. Mr. Iglesias
      said that the retirement incentives were never intended to be set up on an annual basis. They
      are designed to happen infrequently. The District has incurred $12 million dollars in debt
      because of some of the incentive packages. Declining enrollment is also a factor. The
      District is simply not able to offer a package this year. He apologized and stated that the
      District is not able to afford a package at this time and also stated that the District indeed
      honors and respects its teachers for their service and commitment to educating students.

      Mr. Garcia closed Oral Petitions at 7:02 p.m.



VI.   ANNOUNCEMENTS AND REPORTS

      Announcements and Reports by Board Members, Superintendent and Student
      Board Member (ORAL)

      Board Members may report on visits to schools, Conferences and meetings attended, and
      items of interest to the public.

      Miss Ortiz - Reported for Divya in her absence. Miss Ortiz was not able to attend the ILC
      meeting but heard that several of the board members did attend. She thanked the Board for
      their attendance. The main focuses were transportation, food service and teacher turnover.
      Alot of students were concerned especially about teacher turnover and wanted to know why
      that was happening. The Alternative Schools wanted the Board to look into them having a
      sports team and dances. Gunderson was offended by questions that were asked on the
      blood test about their sexual orientation. Students were upset that there was no money
      available to help pay for their AP tests. John Muir just finished their spring elections and
      they are going to start focusing on their April testing. Willow Glen is having their second
      blood drive and are working on their campus beautification. San José High had their
      Mother/Son dance and March madness is beginning. They also just finished their
      Cinderella musical. Leland had their Sadie Hawkins dance which was an 80’s theme and
      they are working on Read Across America program. Pioneer is still reorganizing their
      leadership class. Their slogan is “The Difference Between Ordinary and Extraordinary is a

    both attended the retreat that was held and Lincoln is trying to implement the changes that
    they heard could be made at the school sites.


    Mrs. Foley - The ILC meeting was great fun yesterday. It was warming to hear the intellect
    these kids were operating from. Last week, she attended the Castillero PTA meeting for
    Leslie who was celebrating her 20th anniversary. It was a good opportunity to talk about the
    budget, parcel tax. They took a survey on what their priorities were and what cuts they
    would make and forwarded it to the Superintendent. There is a level of distrust of the
    budget. The Board has to go out and engage the community and give them the budget
    message over and over again. There was also not overwhelming support for the parcel tax
    either. She also participated in a meeting at the invitation of the Chamber of Commerce
    regarding the Governor’s proposal on funding infrastructure improvements. There were
    approximately 250 business leaders there. She was very honored to be invited to attend this
    and commented that it was kind of humbly being in that room with the biggest movers and
    shakers. She also wanted to brag about WGHS girls soccer team who won their first game
    towards CCS. They’ll play Scotts Valley soon. She is very proud of them!

    Mrs. Foley attended the “Going Gold” Gala fundraiser at Schallenberger Elementary
    where they celebrated 50 years. She met with the Superintendent and Parents for a Great
    Education (PAGE.) The purpose was to meet the superintendent and discuss establishing a
    team of educators, parents, administrators to do site visits at various middle schools of
    similar ranking as WGMS with the idea of obtaining ideas of best practices. She attended
    a Star Gazing party at Hacienda. Several large telescopes were set up to view the rings of
    Saturn, the Orion Nebulae and Earth’s moon. Parents, children and interested neighbors
    came to view the heavens. She attended a breakfast meeting with Superintendent and two
    parent leaders from WGMS and WGHS. These are monthly meetings to discuss issues at
    the school sites. One month we focus on the middle school, next month focus on the high
    school. This month was the high school’s turn. They discussed ways to boost the music
    program, advertise and develop the University Express program, construction issues and any
    hot topic that comes up. Elaine Farace was present at this meeting as well.

    She had a meeting with the music booster club, WGHS principal to discuss advertising for
    the musical “Once on This Island.” She attended a fundraiser for Supervisor Jim Beall as
    he begins his campaign for State Assembly. Mr. Beall’s mother teachers pre-school at
    Olinder. On February 13 she was invited to participate in a discussion at the home of Vice-
    mayor Cindy Chavez to discuss ways to “sunshine” the city’s budget process. This was a
    small group of approximately 12 people and included Councilwoman Linda LeZotte as well.
    Their task was to discuss ways to open the budget process to allow enough time for public
    comment and Council input before voting on a particular item. She was humbled to be
    included in this

    Mr. González- He began by stating for the kind of wealth we have in this state and in this
    country, we as a society do not really treat our retirees. He works for the county and there
    have been retirement packages for them, but it was never considered the norm. However, we
    do need to advocate better situations for all government employees’ retirement packages.

    On Feb. 6th he attended the VIP meeting. Rosa and Sharon did an excellent job running the
    meeting. He is concerned about the purpose of the money and we need to keep an eye on
    that. On Feb. 9 he attended the inauguration of the playground at Anne Darling. It was a
    great event and a joint effort with the city of San José. Ms. Cindy Chavez also attended.
    Wonderful things are happening at Anne Darling. He thanked Mr. Ty Williams and the
    construction department for the work they’ve done there. He did not make it to the ILC
    meeting, but did attend the DCP strategic planning meeting and will give a report as soon as
    the details are finalized. Tomorrow he will be the keynote speaker at the California School
    Psychologists Association in Monterey. He is really looking forward to that. He thanked

    Mrs. Flora Englund for giving him information on psychometric tests and some of the
    issues surrounding school psychologists.

    Mr. Iglesias - He attended the ILC meeting. It was heartwarming to see the kids who are so
    articulate, their ability and belief that they can change the world, and their willingness to take
    on tough issues. They are already in touch with Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren’s office over
    the issues of the blood donations and whether or not some of the questions were prejudicial.
    They posed some really tough questions around programs and what we offer. He met with
    the Budget Advisory Committee meeting earlier in the week and talked about the potential
    parcel tax. It was a good discussion regarding when we should do it and the priorities. He
    went with Steve Adamo and Ty Williams to visit Gardner and it is almost done. The
    building is beautiful.

    Mrs. Lewis- She has spent most of her time since the last board meeting talking to people
    about the budget. She was at Hacienda on Monday night and did a presentation on the
    budget and the parcel tax survey. She was also at the Superintendent’s Brown Bag and the
    Budget Advisory Committee meetings today. It is taking a considerable amount of time and
    pretty depressing considering what the district has done to try to balance the budget. She
    attended ILC meeting briefly, then left with Mrs. Reynolds to go to the County School
    Board to do a short presentation on introducing herself as a candidate for Delegate to region
    twenty of CSBA delegate assembly. She met with Mr. Garcia, Dr. Erlendson, Mr. Iglesias
    and Mr. Larry Aceves, Franklin-McKinley School District Superintendent to see about
    working together with educational foundations. She also attended the Bond Oversight
    Committee Meeting and the VIP meeting. She attended the Hacienda HIPS meeting; visited
    Carson’s media center and helped students check out books. She noted how nice it was to
    be a the school helping students. She thanked Elizabeth Bliss for the lovely parent
    liaison/volunteer appreciation event.


    Mrs. Reynolds She was honored to be chosen to be at the meeting with the Governor. The
    most interesting part was watching all the handlers vying for position and making sure the
    police were in the right spot. She attended the outstanding parent volunteer and parent
    liaison recognition this morning. She thanked Ms. Liz Bliss for always doing an
    outstanding job connecting parents to the school district. She attended the SCCSBA
    meeting. The speaker was a former Mercury News reporter. He talked about how school
    board members should talk to the media. She is the new treasurer for SCCSBA and also
    co-chair for the spring candidate workshop and will be part of the panel. The workshop will
    illustrates the mechanics of running for school board, what the role of a school board
    member is and the reasons for running for office.

    Mrs. Reynolds had her monthly meeting with the Superintendent; attended the Leland
    Foundation meeting to review the science program; attended the ILC meeting at John Muir;
    and the Brown Bag lunch.

    Mr. Garcia - Chaired his last meeting at MetroEd as president on last Wednesday. He had
    been president for four years and was given a resolution of thanks for his service. The new
    president is Ms. Cynthia Chang from Los Gatos. He passed out the Executive Report from
    MetroEd. He announced that CCOC is having an open house on March 10, 2006. This is a
    chance for students to come out to see the kinds of programs that are offered. He attended
    the CSBA board president workshop this weekend. He was asked why he was attending by
    the leader since he has been a board president before. It was interesting listening to some of
    the new board members regarding their concerns about closing schools, negotiations. He
    was helpful in giving his colleagues some ideas on these subjects. He also learned some
    new tips about chairing a meeting and tonight we may move a little more efficiently. He
    attended Lincoln’s Foundation meeting last week. They are doing a great job supporting

      the programs there (black box theater, the science wing that is going to be built, the allocated
      teacher recognition awards for next year). Last weekend he attended a basketball game
      between Lincoln and DelMar.

ACTION ITEMS AND REPORTS


 SUPERINTENDENT’S OFFICE

    Report of Don Iglesias, Superintendent of Schools

    Mr. Iglesias reported on the Preliminary Programs and Services Linked to the Proposed
    Parcel Tax . He gave the Board of Education a listing of parcel tax programs. Passing a tax
    is always going to be a task. The polling survey indicates that we could pass a parcel tax.
    He walked through what programs would be protected in the event the parcel tax passes.
    Each year we will face difficult challenges and decisions based on declining enrollment and
    what happens in Sacramento. We do need to shelter certain programs and the issues that
    mean the most to parents and students. The District will make whatever cuts necessary to
    balance the budget. Some of the concerns are class size, K-2 at 20-1; looking at class size
    20-1 in grade 3; maintaining the 6th period day and 4/5 release time and trying to continue
    that program. The other area is preparing students for the future and maintaining advance
    placement courses. Many of these classes have less than twenty students in these classes.
    Intervention programs, after school programs would be sheltered. Also, keeping libraries
    open and extended the hours and expanding the collection of books and materials would be
    a priority. We need to attract and retain high quality teachers and must be competitive
    salary wise otherwise we will lose people. We want to provide professional training to staff
    as well. Arts and sports would be maintained with a parcel tax. We are also shortchanged
    on the price of textbooks. We pay exorbitant prices for our books. We do not have
    enough money to purchase books. We also need to try to maintain support services such as
    custodial, maintenance, etc. There have been several meetings with parents and community
    members to educate them on the importance of passing a parcel tax.

    One of the issues with trying to pass a parcel tax in June is that there will likely be a sales
    tax on the ballot around BART and that will take major resources from folks that would
    support the sales tax. Those are the same folks we would have to go to to run a campaign,
    because we would need to fundraise alot of money. The other factor is the Governor’s
    budget. It is an election year. Also, we are going into negotiations and is not the best time
    to run a parcel tax campaign. November would be better because we would be clear on what
    our cuts are, what our enrollment is and there will be a large turnout because of the
    gubernatorial race and the mayoral race. He asked the Board to talk about what their
    preference would be.

    Mrs. Foley mentioned that she had raised a concern at the BAC meeting and wanted to get
    Mr. Barnes opinion on it. She received a memo from the California Association of Realtors
    that four initiatives have passed the secretary of state phase and are moving to

    petition/signature gathering that would hit the ballot in November. It would be a $50.00
    parcel tax on every parcel in the State of California. She asked Mr. Barry Barnes how that
    would affect our parcel tax. Mr. Barnes said that that is the biggest unknown at this point
    because the legislature could remove or place items on the June ballot. Items could be
    bumped to November. We are not going to hit a state ballot without some tax measure on

    there. Her other question had to do with timing and getting the information out to the public
    to build a public relations campaign. Mr. Barnes said that July would be a good time to
    start to let the public know what direction the District is going in.

    Mr. González asked about the status of efforts to eliminate the super majority requirement.
    Mr. Barnes answered that nothing is happening with that at the moment. No signatures are
    being gathered. It is not moving ahead very quickly and not feasible that it will appear on
    the November ballot.
BOARD MINUTES- February 16, 2006                                                    Page 13

     Mr. Garcia said that as he was speaking to his constituents, it is clear that we should wait
     until November. He will look forward to our next step.


    Resolution Number 2006-02-16-01 - A Declaration of Commitment to the Common
    Mission of the San José Acuerdo

         Mrs. Lewis moved that the Board of Education adopt Resolution Number 2006-02-16-

         Mrs. Reynolds moved that the Board of Education cast a vote for Region 20 Delegates
         to the 2006 California School Boards Association Delegate Assembly. Mrs. Reynolds

         Nasol (Berryessa Union SD), Randy J. Scofield (Cambrian ESD), and Kathleen
         Sullivan (Morgan Hill USD) The motion carried unanimously [Preferential vote by
         Alternate Student Board Member - aye].


 DIVISION OF INSTRUCTION
BOARD MINUTES- February 16, 2006                                                   Page 14

   Report by Rosa Molina, Assistant Superintendent, Instructional Services:

       Mrs. Molina gave a presentation on what the District has done to date regarding
       California Academic High School Exit Examination Report (CAHSEE). 2006 marks
       the first year that all graduating seniors must pass the CAHSEE to receive a high school
       diploma. School principals and district level administrators worked for several months
       to review the CAHSEE legislation. In January seniors began intervention classes and
       staff monitored attendance and progress of each candidate participating in the classes. In
       January the State Superintendent agreed to a one year agreement/reprieve for special
       education students on track to graduate to receive a diploma without passing the
       CAHSEE.. Staff will be making recommendations to the Board about consequences
       and pathways for students that do not pass the CAHSEE.

       The Board members are asked to take the survey and turn in so that a draft policy can be
       written. Board policies must be written and approved before May 2006.

       Mr. González asked if the requirement is helping us to focus in on students who are in
       academic trouble and how early can we intervene. Mrs. Molina responded that yes, it is
       helpful and we can identify students who are lacking credits and who need help in
       passing the test. Students begin taking the test in their sophomore year. The State has
       given us funding this year for intervention classes and for special education students.

       Mrs. Reynolds asked if the ESL lawsuit buy us any time at all? The response was no.
       Mrs. Reynolds noted that the test is at an 8th grade level, therefore, could we test them
       sooner. Dr. Buchanan responded that the State sets the legislation which allows testing
       at the 10th grade level.

       Mr. Garcia asked if this test is a valid test to test what we are teaching and does it meet
       our expectations. Dr. Buchanan responded that the test is targeted to the bigger network
       of State standards. In that regard it is valid by definition.

   •English Learners Report- Dr. Norma Martinez Palmer, Director, Bilingual
    Education

       Dr. Martinez gave a brief report on English Learners in San José Unified School
       District. The report listed the number of English learners at the elementary and
       secondary levels and the District's goals for these students which is to; (1) learn English,
       and (2) Academic Achievement. We measure these through the CELDT, STAR, SAE,
       and CST tests. Instruction is provided in the main language plus the second language.
       They must have ELD in place regardless of program and the District must insure that
       they are academically successful. Dr. Martinez Palmer reviewed the goals and purposes
       of the SEI (Structured English Immersion Program, the Academic Language Acquisition

       Program (ALA) and the Two-Way Bilingual Immersion Programs. She talked about the
       goal of reclassification for EL Latino Students in ALA and Non-AlA programs, primary
       language academic achievement, and CAHSEE results for secondary students. In
       summary, 24% of the District’s students are English Learners. The District met Title III
       AMAO I (Annual Measurable Achievement Objective) and II targets in the last two
       years. Reclassification rates are improving and in 2002 Grade 2 Latino ALA students
       showed more growth on CST than non-ALA Latino Students.

       Mr. González shared that when he came to the U.S. he was in middle school and there
       were no bilingual programs available then, but he learned English because of the help of
       a dedicated teacher who would translate for him. Is the District making sure that our
       students have the edge needed to succeed in our curriculum? Dr. Martinez Palmer
       responded that we definitely have a rigorous academic program for our students.
BOARD MINUTES- February 16, 2006                                                Page 15

       Mrs. Foley thanked Dr. Martinez Palmer for the presentation because she had a lot of
       questions in her mind about the successfulness of these programs. She would also like
       to see the results of AMAO I, II and III and wants to know what we are doing to help
       boost the ELA tests. This year, we purchased a new ELD program for the elementary
       programs, called Avenues. There has been districtwide training for teachers. Teachers
       have also participated in GLAD training as well. Walkthroughs have been done in all of
       the PI schools and she expects good results by next year. Mrs. Molina also responded
       about the general problem with the math sections of the tests. We are doing some
       catchup work in regular and bilingual education in the middle schools.

       Mrs. Reynolds asked about reclassification for EL and she wanted to know the total
       number of students that were included in this study. How does the District’s CELDT
       test scores compare with the County overall. Most of the students did meet the targets.

       Mr. Garcia wanted to know what role technology has played in bilingual education
       during the last five years or so. Dr. Martinez Palmer noted that some of the schools
       have purchased software to provide support to students. Dr. Erlendson said that that we
       did receive Enhancing Education Through Technology Grant and the focus is actually
       English Language Acquisition utilizing Rosetta Stone which is LA software and Lexia
       which is writing software. These will be in all 14 schools that are targeted. These are
       very good programs. Mrs. Molina invited them to Hoover where they will be piloting a
       Rosetta Stone program.


   *PUBLIC HEARING - To receive public comment on the issue of Special Education
    Non-Compliance with 5 California Code of Regulations (CCR) 4663 (b) pursuant
    to Education Code 56045.

   OPEN PUBLIC HEARING

       Mr. Garcia opened the public hearing at 8:35 p.m. The following community members
       addressed the Board of Education:

       Ms. Arlene Harden - Expressed her concern that parents of special education students
       were not notified in sufficient time to know about this public hearing.

       Ms. Leticia Gutierrez - Addressed the Board concerning her concern about the services
       her child is receiving through the Special Education program.

   CLOSE PUBLIC HEARING

       Mr. Garcia closed the public hearing at 8:40 p.m.


   Compliance Complaint Corrective Action

       Mrs. Lewis moved that the Board of Education address the issue of Special Education
       Non-Compliance with 5 California Code of Regulations (CCR) 4663 (b). Mrs. Foley
       seconded.

       Mrs. Lewis asked how the notice was posted. Miss Warren, Secretary for the Board of
       Education stated that the notice was posted per the Brown Act requirements. Mrs.
       Molina stated that this public hearing was for one particular case only, not for general
       special education concerns. There will be a parent meeting on March 8 which is the next
       step after this action. Mrs. Lewis asked to be notified when these meetings are
       scheduled. She also asked why we are addressing these issues. Mr. Max Forman,
BOARD MINUTES- February 16, 2006                                                Page 16

       Manager for Special Education answered this question. This corrective action had to do
       with a student who is attending a county program and there was a communication
       problem with our transportation department in that the student was being picked up too
       early. This has been corrected. Mr. González noted again that this public hearing was
       for this specific case. Mr. Garcia asked if the corrective actions taken were adequate.
       Mrs. Flora Englund responded affirmatively.

       The motion carried unanimously [Preferential vote by Alternate Student Board Member
       - aye].

 ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES

        Report by Ms. Ann Jones, Chief Business Officer, Administrative Services

        Ms. Jones reported that there was an update given at the Budget Advisory Committee on
        yesterday. One new assumption which will be included in the second interim, and will
        also be used to develop the 2006-2007 budget which is to shift an additional three
        million dollars in the current year from our TIG grant and the next three years. We
        looked at a $9.9 million shortfall. The $3 million dollars for the next three years will
        reduce that to 1 million shortfall. In the past this grant has been allocated on a per
        student basis. In 2005-2006 the State rolled it into a block grant which turned out to be
        good news for the District because it froze the amount at a fixed amount and then they
        gave us a state COLA. We will be receiving $35 million rather than $32.9 million.

        In 2006-2007 we will receive a state COLA which will add $1.9 million to the TIG
        grant. We’ll use that for PI and the reading initiative. This also gives us more time to
        consider a November parcel tax.

    Collective Bargaining Disclosure

        Mrs. Lewis moved that the Board of Education disclose the financial implications of a
        3% salary improvement for San Jose Administrator's Association (SJAA) and to review
        the certification of the Superintendent and Chief Business Officer. Mr. González
        seconded. The motion carried unanimously [Preferential vote by Alternate Student
        Board Member - aye].
