I have a question in regards to Tami’s statement...What petition is she talking about? and is the board aware of whatever it is?
Tami Jones
36:02
I’m talking about two petitions for territory transfers from two developers. In 1999 we transferred territory to Clovis Unified, same in 2000, and in 2003 we transferred territory to ‘several school districts.’ The developers are trying to transfer more territory out of our school district.
Tami Jones
36:50
Great question, Wes.
cfalk@sierrausd.org
37:51
yes, we are aware. This developer came to board meetings in the past to appeal for our support, which was not given.
cfalk@sierrausd.org
38:21
I would encourage any interested parties to meet with Dr. Harris to discuss further.

Thank you Chrissy, I hope that NO will still be the board’s answer.
Tami Jones

Jeff P. Johnston for the 26 acres (I believe near Valerie Meadows) and the Assemi’s tried again, these were in May and June of this year. Fresno County denied the first try, but you can bet they’ll try again. Just be aware.

Can't hear Craig at all.

Great to hear that the security is working.
Tami Jones

Will the master plan be available to the public before a vote is made?
Tami Jones
50:03
Thank you, Connie!
Tami Jones
58:02
Since four new seats, possibly five are coming up, it would be great if we could hold off on voting for spending contracts or commitments. Unless it’s urgent COVID fund spending, nothing should be voted on.
Tami Jones
58:57
Thank you, Chrissy!
Peter McManus

How many students are serviced under Tier 2 and Tier 3?
Donna Martin
01:24:21
what percentage of students are in tier 3 in your total enrollment?
Hayley’s Iphone 11
01:24:35
I had the same thought Connie. the district only has 1200ish kids.
Tami Jones
01:24:52
Thank you, Connie!
Hayley’s Iphone 11
01:26:16
Thank you for the explanation Dr. Harris and Mrs. Page.
Peter McManus
01:27:02
Thanks Connie!
Cortney Burke

Has there been discussions to hire a full time tech guru to help guide our teachers and build some of these things in-house? including tech communications.
Tami Jones
01:35:15
Excellent.
Tami Jones
01:35:52
I’ll take you up on that!
Tami Jones
01:39:25
Yes, I spoke with a Fresno County attorney today. It is a long process, I just don’t remember hearing about the territory transfers to Clovis Unified in 1999, 2000, and 2003.

01:44:09
Dr. Harris thank you for responding to all of the questions.
Tami Jones
01:47:20
Did Sierra Unified apply for the small school waiver or did we fall under those guidelines?
Tami Jones
01:49:47
Thank you!!!
Tami Jones
01:57:27
I’d love to see that, if possible. This is in my wheelhouse.
Cortney Burke
02:01:17
I would love to be part of the community discussion committee.
Tami Jones
02:01:51
I’d also like to be on the community committee or focus group - you need to roll Revitalize Auberry into this.
Tami Jones
02:09:10
Will it be available to community members?
Tami Jones
02:09:20
Thank you.
Margaret Sanders
02:11:55
Is this a document that can be shared with the public?
India Saude
02:13:07
We will have it available on the district website as well.
Tami Jones
02:21:16
Yes, definitely should have some more training on Brown Act violations. Good point, Wes.
Tami Jones
02:23:24
Oh, and more training on Conflicts of Interest.
Tami Jones
02:26:52
I agree, Ron.
Hayley’s Iphone 11
02:28:17
I agree, Ron.
Tami Jones
02:28:38
Good job, you two.
Peter McManus
02:29:32
Along the lines of the discussion, Community Leadership seems to be an area for improvement. I assume that the communication of Board activities to the public is one of these?
Tami Jones
02:29:35
Yes, that’s politics.
Tami Jones
02:32:19
Yes, and they’re very hard to find.
Margaret Sanders
02:32:53
Is there a district communications person? I've seen other districts with someone in a director position who coordinates all communications-district and Board

Thank you for the time that you all have committed to serving the community. ❤️
Cortney Burke
02:42:46
Can you tell us more about AmeriCorps help in the reading program?
Cortney Burke
02:47:38
Is it misleading to the community to take the feedback from one specific meeting targeting specific information (how they want school to look when we opened back up), and using it to fill this in? I would assume if you reached out to the LCAP committee of 2019 you would find informed feedback.
Tami Jones
02:47:50
This document is currently available on the website?
Tami Jones
02:48:43
I was also wondering about the Americorps.
Tami Jones
02:51:02
Would you guys please consider reaching out to community members who are active in the community, and not just based on having kids in the school district? NO ONE has ever reached out to me.

Absolutely!

I like the fact that when you announce the Zoom forums, they are labeled “Community Forums.” So they’re available to everyone who wants to participate. However, not everyone outside of the school community may be aware of them. Subscribe to the Mountain Press lol

Congratulations, Alan!
