C.8. Public Comment on Non Agenda Items

SRTA members are invited to complete ‘blue cards’ in person or raise their hands and provide voice only comments if attending online. Please put SRTA at the start of your online name. Please be prepared to observe the recent practice of a two minute limit. Only items not on the agenda are addressed at this time, so safety items would be addressed here.

Comments are requested at the board meeting to bring a member’s perspective and share real experiences of the impact of district policies and practices. There is an invitation for comments on specific items during each item, so they need to be held until then.

Please commit to watching or attending at least one board meeting this year, and speaking to an agenda item that impacts you or your students. Speakers are most impactful when they are well spoken, composed and reasonable.

Recent teacher comments:

We need to implement meaningful, immediate consequences to students who are holding our classrooms and campuses hostage. Restorative practices should be a component of this, but removing site privileges and school suspensions are paramount.  

I am looking for other districts that take all years of experience. I have to take care of myself as I near the end of my career. I still like teaching. I just don’t like who I work for now.

SRTA is currently working to survey our members on their level of concern regarding SAFETY on our campuses. Early results show a strong sentiment toward taking collective action. 

C.9. Audry Rauh, Student Board Member Loyalty Oath of Office

D.3. The Superintendent’s report will include an update on the Safety Advisory Round Table (SART)


E.1. (Discussion) A-G Completion Improvement Grant Plan Update


SRCS A-G Improvement Grant Plan was allocated $1,409,215 in funding for expenditure for the 2021-26 fiscal years to expand opportunities for students to graduate from high school with A-G eligibility requirements completed for admission to the CSU and UC system, which requires a C or better in courses. SRCS is focusing on helping students  complete A-G course requirements by providing comprehensive math supports and interventions through staffing allocations across our comprehensive high schools.  

In 2022, 22% of SRCS graduates met a-g criteria. CDE Data for SRCS a-g Completion shows students in the combined four- and five-year graduation rate by student group who met the University of California (UC) or California State University (CSU) a-g criteria with a grade of C or better (or Pass).ersity (CSU) a-g criteria with a grade of C or better (or Pass). 

Grant recipients must report to the State Superintendent of Public Instruction by December 31, 2023, detailing how they are measuring the impact on the A-G completion rate. 

A-G Completion and Improvement Grant plans for 2023-24:

1. MHS, MCHS, EAHS will utilize funding to enact site-based direct support and intervention to students.  

2. Additional support will be provided to SRHS and PHS in the form of a Math Intervention TOSA, Teacher on Special Assignment, to provide direct support to students.

3. Additional funding will be used to identify systemic improvements to further increase A-G completion.  


A-G Grant

The Math Steering Committee expressed concern about hiring enough full time math teachers for our campuses. It does not make sense to have a full time Math Intervention TOSA if there is an unfilled position at one of our sites.

E.2. (Discussion) Educator Effectiveness Funds (EEF) Block Grant Plan Update


The SRCS Educator Effectiveness Funds (EEF) Block Grant allocated $3,443,208 for the 2021-2026 school years. $260,833 of this is for SRCS Charter Schools.

The areas of focus for the remaining 3 years of the grant (2023-24 through 2025-26) are: 

  • Teacher, counselor, and administrator support, including intern credential program and administrator induction
  • Professional learning through workshops, conferences, seminars, and district professional development days
  • Mathematics, TK-12
  • MTSS, Restorative Practices, PBIS, Social Emotional Learning & Well-Being
  • Literacy across content areas
  • English Language Acquisition and Development for Emergent Bilinguals

New items for 2023-24 include

  • explore Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics for enhanced learning, 4-12
  • Specially Designed Academic Instruction in English (SDAIE) training 
  • provide training to staff in Restorative Practices and Positive Behavioral Interventions (PBIS)

Eliminated support from these funds for:

  • NSCOE Induction
  • Ethnic Studies Cohorts 


SRCS District Plan


SRCArts Plan



SRTA is disappointed that SRCS is not utilizing part of these funds to re-establish the Peer Assistance and Review (PAR) program. With the difficulty attracting and retaining highly qualified staff, these funds could provide support to assist educator improvement instead of releasing them.

Note: The following several items are Public Hearings. They will each be agendized for action at the next board meeting.

Elementary School District = $7,538,293

SRCS 2023-24 LCAP

LCAP Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Addendum

SRTA acknowledges that the turnover in district office staff has continued to add complexity to the LCAP process. 

The call for additional adults on campuses has been heard for secondary schools. There are concerns about being able to hire for these additional positions.  Elementary sites would appreciate additional adult support as well. 

SRTA members are disappointed with the continuation of MAP testing as it has not met expectations. 

Members are encouraged to review areas of focus in the written report that are of special interest to them. Topics in both the Successes and Needs write ups include: CCD, ELA, ELD, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Ethnic Studies, CTE, CCC, Learning Platforms, ALPS, AVID, VAPA, MTSS, SEL, Restorative, UPK/UTK, Libraries and Expanded Learning.

A special section includes plans for CSI Sites (CCLA, HCMS and SRMS) that members at these sites may wish to review. 

The Engaging Partners section includes a listing of every site staff, ELAC, SSC and parent organization meeting, as if the LCAP or SPSA was part of each of those meetings. 

In general, many metrics depend on data that is not available at this time of the year or  “The analysis of baseline data will inform the outcome goal.”  As a result, the plan is lacking these metrics. For consistency, one wonders if the plan can include the most recent data available, even if it is a year old. 

It seems pertinent to have clear metrics and data on student numbers for reclassification, growth on the ELPAC, college and career ready, attendance and middle school drop out rate, to allow for adequate monitoring.

The Facilities Inspection Tool rated 100% of schools exemplary. It seems our colleagues at MHS might wonder what that assessment was based upon.

These plans do not appear to utilize COVID Relief One Time Funding which shows an unencumbered $8,857,117 that needs to be spent by September 2024. 

Quotes of interest from text:

  • “This year a team of these MTSS counselors did a deep dive to uncover over 1,000 current juniors (the class of 2024), who in January 2023, were not on track to graduate.”
  • “SRCS will continue to reduce discretionary expulsion referrals and will no longer implement involuntary transfers for disciplinary reasons.”
  • “We will ensure all staff members understand the basics of MTSS.” 
  • “Our district plans to offer in-person, high school evening school sessions in 23-24.”

Site level supplemental, concentration and Title 1 funding and the SPSA plans for using those funds are not included in this agenda.

E.4.- E.7. Public Hearings for SRCS Charter LCAPS

CCLA 2023-24 LCAP Supplemental and Concentration Grant funding in the LCAP -$1,947,804.00

Title 1 funding-$168,150.86

Total = $2,115,954.80

SRACS 2023-24 LCAP Supplemental and Concentration Grant Funding in the LCAP year – $28,455.00

SRCArts 2023-24 LCAP Supplemental and Concentration Grant Funding in the LCAP Year – $264,518

FACS 2022-23 LCAP Supplemental and Concentration Grant Funding in the LCAP year $256,322

SRTA members at these sites are encouraged to familiarize themselves with these plans. 

E.8. Public Hearing: 2023-24 Budget


For next year P-2 ADA is estimated to increase by 102 students while funding shrinks by 557 students. Enrollment is projected to decrease by 65 students per year after next year.


SRCS 2023-24 Budget

SRTA stands up for the need for significant changes to the pay of our CSEA brothers. The upcoming negotiations must make meaningful movement towards liveable wages. This must be prioritized in our budget.

As always, the three year forecast is disastrous, requiring $20 million in ongoing cuts to have an ending balance of $18 million. Next fall the Budget Advisory Committee is scheduled to look at structural ways to provide a stronger ongoing financial situation.

Since SRCS has not yet created a plan for spending the Arts, Music, and Instructional Materials Discretionary Block Grant, how have these funds been incorporated into the budget? What happens to the money allocated for 2022-2023 that was not spent?

The addition of multiple positions at the district office (agenda item E.12.) is concerning.

How do unfilled positions impact the budget? How much is paid in overtime to perform these jobs? How much is spent on contracts to perform these duties? What is the net effect of not being able to attract and retain the needed workforce?

There is a need for transparency around Charter School funding. Are all charters treated the same way? How are the transfers of indirect costs calculated? The Charter Schools Reserve Fund summary appears to have under calculated the total of these contributions by $1,750,440. What are charters expected to self fund? How are the costs of Special Education funded for our charters?

E.12. (Action) Updated Santa Rosa City Schools (SRCS) Organizational Chart


Comparing the September org chart to the current proposal shows the elimination of an Assistant Superintendent position, and a Director of Facilities, saving $340,478.  Three Directors are becoming Executive Directors, and one Director position is becoming a Coordinator saving a combined $31,492. There is one new director and three  new coordinators costing an additional $543,550. There are also two new Administrators on Special Assignment projected to cost $304,161. This represents an annual total additional cost of $475,741.

It is impossible to support this expansion of positions at the district office at the added expense of half a million dollars. It is the sincere hope that focus can now be on genuine action as opposed to managerial reorganization that produces little outcome.

I1. Future Board Discussion Items

SRTA Members are encouraged to prepare for the upcoming agenda items.

  • LCAP approvals (6/28/23)
  • 2023-24 Budget Adoption (6/28/23)
  • Educator Effectiveness Funds Grant Revisions Approval (6/28/23)
  • Revision of EL Master Plan (6/28/23)
  • Parcel Tax Survey Results (6/28/23)
  • COVID Updates (6/14/23 8/9/23)
  • VAPA Program Highlights (8/9/23)

SRTA looks to the future scheduling of the following items:

  • Site Safety Plans
  • Site Single Plans for Student Achievement (6/14/23)
  • Resolution Recognizing Administrative Professionals   (5/10/23)
  • Safety (board statement on 3/8/23 that this will be a future item)

The California Constitution states, “All students and staff of public … schools have the inalienable right to attend campuses which are safe, secure, and peaceful.” (Article 1, Section 28(f). 

What are the steps for intervening when a student creates a disruptive and/or unsafe situation for other students and staff?

Current practices seem to protect bullies and tolerate intimidation without intervention, leaving the remaining students feeling unsafe and vulnerable. This also sends a clear message to students that this type of alarming behavior is acceptable and will not have consequences. 

What is the current discipline policy and process? When are police contacted? How is SRCS keeping track of contacts with the police in order to be able to address the underlying issues?

What are the consequences for cutting a class? Students not experiencing any repercussions are wandering our campuses instead of attending classes. This can lead to unsafe conditions for other students as well as serious learning loss.

An audit of the programs for students with special needs is called for.  Have we been able to attract and retain the necessary employees to run these programs effectively? 

What anti-bullying efforts are we implementing?

How many students are not coming to campus because they don’t feel safe? It is a hardship on teachers to provide independent study.

  • A-G Program Review (board request 8/10/22)

What does the data look like about A-G Completion since this policy was adopted? Where is data on students that are not on track to graduate? How helpful were prior IGPs in allowing students to earn diplomas? How many current students are not on track to graduate? How many of these students are meeting the state requirements for a diploma but not the extra requirements of our district? 

What systemic measures are in place to offer academic support K-12 to increase A-G success? What metrics are being used to evaluate these efforts?

  • Results of Developer Fee exploration
  • SRACS Accelerated Charter Material Revision Request (delayed)
  • Deferred Maintenance Update and Future Planning (7/27/22 8/24/22)
  • Review of Math grades and progress including demographic data (board request)
  • SCOE Unification/Redistricting Report (on option #1)
  • Staff Housing support program from the proceeds of Fir Ridge
  • Open Enrollment Policy Update 
  • Student Voice Policy
  • Dress Code Policy
  • BEST Plus Update
