BY A STATE LAW ARE YOU WILL SEE THE NEW APPLICATIONS APPLICANTS ARE REQUIRED TO SUBMIT A LETTER OF INTENT TO BOTH HIM AND PS AND THE STATE BOARD OF TENNESSEE A SIXTY CALENDAR DAYS PRIOR TO SUBMITTING A COMPLETED APPLICATION ON APRIL THIRD OF TWENTY NINETEEN.

TO SUBMIT RECOMMENDATIONS TO HIM AND PAST BOARD OF EDUCATION. AND FOR THE BOARD TO VOTE ON THOSE RECOMMENDATIONS. AND THAT VOTE ARE TOOK PLACE INITIALLY ON JUNE TWENTY FIFTH.

OUR THERE’S AN APPEAL PROCESS AS WELL AS THE BOARD SHOULD VOTE TO DENY AN APPEAL A AN AMENDED APPLICATION THEN THE APPLICANT HAS TEN DAYS TO APPEAL TO THE STATE BOARD FROM APPEALS HEARING. YOU WILL THEN SEE THAT YOU HAVE IN YOUR POSSESSION A TIME LINE FOR CHARTER APPLICATIONS. TRY TO GIVE YOU A BETTER PERSPECTIVE ON THE STEP BY STEP PROCESS THAT THE CHARTER CHARTER OFFICE GOES THROUGH. OUR WITH THE REVIEW TEAMS MEETINGS AND THINGS OF THAT NATURE UP TO THE POINT OF. OUR BUILDING THE RECOMMENDATION REPORT AND THEN OF COURSE MAKING THOSE RECOMMENDATIONS AS YOU CAN SEE ON JUNE TWENTY FIFTH. THE CHARTER OFFICE PRESENTED NATIONAL COLLEGIATE PREP AND ROCKET SHIP NUMBER THREE TO THIS BOARD. THERE ARE ALSO TAX A TIMELINE FOR THE CHARTER APPLICATIONS. IF IT IS AN AMENDED APPLICATION AND AS YOU CAN SEE SEPTEMBER TWENTY FOURTH. WE’RE BACK WITH YOU ONCE AGAIN. SAME TO PATIENTS THAT WERE AMENDED. NATIONAL COLLEGE PREP COLLEGIATE PREP IN ROCKET SHIP NUMBER THREE SO THERE’S A- PROCESS OR SOME LEGAL GUIDELINES THAT WE FOLLOW IN THE CHARTER OFFICE. THAT GOVERNS THE PROCESS AND WHEN THINGS ARE BROUGHT BEFORE THE BOARD. THE FOCUS OF THE REVIEW TEAM DURING THE AMENDED APPLICATION REVIEW PROCESS THE REVIEW TEAM FOCUSES AND THIS AGAIN THIS IS THE AMENDED PROCESS. ARE WE OUT OF THE REVIEW TEAM FOCUSES ONLY ON THE PORTIONS. OF THE APPLICATION THAT ARE DEEMED PARTIALLY MEET STANDARD OR DOES NOT BE STANDARD ANY AREAS WHERE THEY MET STANDARD WE DO NOT FOCUS ON ANOTHER REVIEW OF THAT. OUR FOR THIS APPLICATION. INCLUDED ACADEMICS OPERATIONS AND FINANCE ALL THREE OF WHICH RECEIVED PARTIALLY MEET STANDARD. AND AGAIN YOU’RE FAMILIAR I’M SURE WITH THE RATING STANDARDS THAT WE USE ARE CHARACTERISTICS OF MEET STANDARDS PARTIALLY ME STANDARD. DOES NOT MEET STANDARDS. IF YOU GO TO SLIDE NUMBER TEN. THE ACADEMIC PLAN WHEN THE REVIEW TEAM REVIEWED THE AMENDED APPLICATIONS ARE YOU HAVE IN YOUR POSSESSION SOME BULLETED AREAS WHERE THEY FELL DEFICIENT ONCE AGAIN BASED UPON OUR RECOMMENDATIONS. BOWL WE FOUND OVERALL WAS THERE WERE A NUMBER OF ACADEMIC ISSUES THAT WERE NOT ADDRESSED OR THEY WERE INSUFFICIENTLY ADDRESSED ONCE AGAIN THAT INCLUDED THE AREAS AROUND EXCEPTIONAL ED ENGLISH LANGUAGE ENGLISH LANGUAGE RT IRISH STUFF% SUPPORTS FOR STUDENTS. THERE WERE STILL SOME CONCERNS THAT WERE NOT ANSWERED CONCERNING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE SCHOOL AND TREVECCA NAZARENE OF SOME OF THOSE WERE NOT ADDRESSED FOR US ARE STILL UNCLEAR ON HOW THE IDENTIFIED INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS ARE STRATEGIES WORK COHESIVELY TOGETHER. IT APPEARS STILL TO BE A BIT FRAGMENTED TIME ONCE THEY RETURN THAT TO US. WE ONCE AGAIN THE REVIEW TEAM DEEMED THE ACADEMIC PIECE TO PARTIALLY MEET STANDARDS. WE THEN MOVED ON TO THE OPERATIONS. THE OPERATIONS PLAN PARTIALLY MEET STANDARD AS WELL BECAUSE EACH SECTION LACKS DETAIL TO PROVIDE A CLEAR PICTURE OF THE SCHOOL’S PROPOSED OPERATIONS PLAN. AND THE FUN THE FOUNDING TEAMS CAPACITY TO EXECUTED. FACILITIES PLANS ARE UNCLEAR OTHER THAN POTENTIAL AND LOCATIONS A NARRATIVE DESCRIBING POTENTIAL SPACE. AGAIN YOU HAVE A MORE DETAILED DESCRIPTION FRONT OF YOU. OUR MOVIES TO THE FINANCIAL PLAN. THE FINANCIAL PLAN ALSO WAS DEEMED TO PARTIALLY MEET STANDARDS. THE FINANCIAL SECTION EIGHT IN THE AMENDED APPLICATION WAS GREATLY IMPROVED. HOWEVER THE REVIEW TEAM STILL FELT VARIOUS AREAS OF THE BUDGET WERE UNCLEAR AND THEREFORE PARTIALLY MET STANDARD AS WELL. IN SUMMARY ALTHOUGH A THOROUGH REVIEW THE NATIONAL COLLEGIATE PREP TO WRITTEN A MAN BUT APPLICATION BY THE REVIEW TEAM AND ALONG WITH THE OFFICE OF CHARTER SCHOOLS A RECOMMENDATION OF DENIAL FOR THIS APPLICATION IS PRESENTED. TO THIS BOARD THE REASON FOR THIS DENIAL ARE BASED UPON THE SCHOOLS NOT ADEQUATELY ADDRESSING CONCERNS AND PARTIALLY MEETING OF STANDARDS AND ACADEMICS OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL. IN CONCLUSION THE REFUTING FELT THE MINUTE APPLICATION FOR RETHINK FORWARD DID NOT PRESENT A CLEAR. COMPREHENSIVE AND EFFECTIVE PLAN TO SUCCESSFUL FOR SUCCESSFUL INSTRUCTION FOR STUDENTS WITH AN M. P. S. AND FELT THERE WERE UNANSWERED QUESTIONS REMAINING IN THE OPERATION AND FINANCIAL SECTIONS. CONCERNS STILL REMAIN FOR THE REVIEW TEAM REGARDING THE RELIANCE. OF RETHINK FORWARD HAS PLACED ON ANY I. OTHER PROPOSED CMO. THE OF THE CHARTER SCHOOLS RESPECTFULLY RECOMMENDS THAT THE IN THE PASSPORT OF EDUCATION DID NOT A SUBMITTED APPLICATION. THERE ANY QUESTIONS FROM THE SQUARE. HEY CAN I GET A MOTION. BASED UPON THE RECOMMENDATION. I MOVED TO DENY THE APPLICATION AS RECOMMENDED BY THE CHARTER OFFICE CAN I GET A SECOND.

YES IF YOU GO TO PAGE THIS PAGE THIRTEEN ON YOU FOR YOU. CONCERNING PAST PERFORMANCE WHICH IS ROCKET SHIP NUMBER THREE RECEIVED PARTIALLY MEETS. IF YOU RECALL AT OUR PREVIOUS MEETING THE REASON FOR THAT WAS THERE WAS ONLY ONE YEAR. OF WHAT WE WOULD CONSIDER GOOD DATA. AND AS A RESULT WE COULD NOT DEEM IT TO BE A PATTERN. OF GOOD DATA. ARE SINCE THE LAST PRESENTATION THE STATE HAS RELEASED THE STATE ASSESSMENT DATA. AND OF THE SCHOOL BOTH OF THE SCHOOLS ACTUALLY ARE PERFORMING AT VERY HIGH STANDARDS. AND SO I WANTED TO SHARE A LITTLE BIT WITH YOU THIS EVENING IF YOU LOOK AT. IN TWENTY SEVENTEEN ROCKET SHIP NORTHEAST DID RECEIVE A NOTICE OF CONCERN FROM THIS OFFICE. FOR PERFORMING THE LOWEST 10% OF SCHOOLS IN THE STATE. IN BOTH TWENTY EIGHTEEN TWENTY NINETEEN AND UNDER NEW SCHOOL LEADERSHIP WE WANT TO STRESS THEY BROUGHT IN NEW LEADERSHIP AND MADE A NUMBER OF CHANGES INTERNALLY. A ROCKET SHIP NORTHEAST HAS PERFORMED AS WE WILL SHARE WITH YOU NOW AND TO GET TO THAT. PAGE HERE. ROCKET SHIP NORTHEAST ACHIEVED A LEVEL FIVE T. VOSS IN YOUR MERCY FOR BOTH TWENTY EIGHTEEN AND TWENTY NINETEEN. ROCKET SHIP NORTHEAST ACHIEVED A LEVEL THREE T. VOSS AND LITERACY AND BOTH TWENTY EIGHTEEN AND TWENTY NINETEEN. ROCKET SHIP NORTH THEY SHOWED HIGH LEVELS OF STUDENT GROWTH IN MATHEMATICS AS COMPARED AREA ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS ADDITIONALLY A ROCKET SHIP NORTHEAST OUTPERFORM BOTH DISTRICT IN MOST. AREA SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT AVERAGES IN MATH AND TWENTY NINETEEN. ROCKET SHIP NORTH SCORTON ROCKETSHIP NORTHEAST CORE JUST BELOW DISTRICT AVERAGE ACHIEVEMENT IN A LA IN TWENTY NINETEEN. IF WE LOOK AT ROCKET SHIP UNITED. ROCKET SHIP UNITED HAS PERFORMED WELL OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS AND RECEIVED FOR WORK SCHOOL STATUS FOR THE STATE OF TENNESSEE. IN TWENTY EIGHTEEN. ROCKET SHIP UNITED ACHIEVE LEVEL FIVE T. BOSTON UNIVERSITY IN TWENTY EIGHTEEN WITH A LEVEL THREE AND TWENTY NINETEEN. ROCKET SHIP UNITED ACHIEVE LEVEL FIVE STEVE AUSTIN LITERACY IN TWENTY EIGHTEEN WITH A LEVEL THREE AND TWENTY NINETEEN. ROCKET SHIP UNITED OUTPERFORM DISTRICT AN AREA SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT AVERAGES IN BOTH THE LA IN MATH AND TWENTY NINETEEN. THE DATA FOR TWENTY NINETEEN PROVIDED EVIDENCE OF SUSTAINED GROWTH AND ACHIEVEMENT FOR BOTH SCHOOLS. ASHLEY AND ROCKET SHIP NORTHEAST. THE REPLICATION APPLICATION MAKE STANDARD. FOR PAST PERFORMANCE AND YOU HAVEN’T I BELIEVE YOU HAVE IN YOUR PACKET OF SOME CHARGE. WHERE WE DID SOME COMPARE SOME ANALYSIS OF THE SCHOOLS INC IN COMPARISON TO SOME THE ELEMENTARY IS IN THAT GENERAL AREA. THEY’RE NOT HAVE IT. OKAY. WE GET THAT FOR YOU THOUGHT IT WAS ALREADY IN THE PACKET. SO THEY ALSO CHARTER SCHOOLS RECOMMENDS THE BOARD APPROVE THIS. CHARTER APPLICATION BASED ON THE EVIDENCE PRESENTED. THANK YOU MISTER GREEN HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FROM BOARD MEMBERS. OKAY THE MOTION WE NEED A MOTION TO APPROVE THE SECOND CHARGE GO UP ATTENTION. I MOVE THAT WAY APPROVE THE APPLICATION FOR ROCKET SHIP NUMBER THREE. WE HAVE A SECOND. WE DO NOT HAVE A SECOND. WITH NO SECOND THE MOTION FAILS CORRECT. OKAY THEN WE’LL NEED A NEW MOTION DETECTOR REPLACE THAT MOTION. I MOVE THAT WE DENY THE ROCKET SHIP CHARTER APPLICATION. I GET A SECOND I’M A SECOND OKAY A DISCUSSION. WHICH BROKE. SO BEFORE I MAKE ROB REMARKS I DO WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE ALL OF THE PARENTS HERE AND I YOU KNOW BELIEVE ALL PARENTS WERE ALL JUST TRYING TO THE BEST THING WHAT WE BELIEVE IS BEST FOR OUR CHILDREN BUT I DO HAVE A VERY LONG LIST OF CONCERNS ABOUT ROCKET SHIP WHICH I AM GOING TO DETAIL FOR THE RECORD MY APOLOGIZE FOR THE LENGTH OF THIS BUT IT IS IMPORTANT IF WE ARE GOING TO DENY RECOMMENDATION. FROM THE CHARTER OFFICE THAT WE MAKE A RECORD. ROCKET SHIP WAS THE BRAIN CHILD OF AN AMBITIOUS SILICON VALLEY ENTREPRENEUR WHO MADE A FORTUNE AND INTERNET ADVERTISING. THE SCHOOLS MODEL UTILIZES A HIGH STUDENT TO TEACHER RATIO AS A WAY TO FREE UP MONEY. TO FIND SOFTWARE COMPANIES AND FOR PROFIT PROPERTY INVESTORS. SCHOOLDIGGER AND NASH NATIONAL ONLINE SCHOOL RATING SITE SHOWS THAT ROCKET SHIP UNITED HERE IN NASHVILLE MAINTAINS THE STUDENT TO TEACHER RATIO OF FORTY NINE POINT THREE STUDENTS TO ONE TEACHER. THIS RATIO TAKES INTO ACCOUNT THE USEOF COMPARTE COMPUTER LEARNING LABS WHICH I WILL DETAIL FURTHER SHORTLY. THE GROWTH OF ROCKET SHIPS GOALS IS FUELED BY PROFIT AND INVESTMENT. TAX DOLLARS INTENDED FOR STUDENTS ARE INSTEAD USED TO PAY OFF PROPERTIES FOR INVESTORS. MANY OF THE ROCKET SHIP PROPERTIES ARE DEVELOPED BY TENNIS STAR ANDRE AGASSI’S BILLION DOLLAR FOR PROFIT COMPANY INCLUDING A ROCKET SHIP BUILDING HERE IN NASHVILLE. ACCORDING TO AGASSI’S PARTNER AND THE FIRM’S CEO BOBBY TURNER QUOTE. THE GOAL IS TO GENERATE PROFITS FOR INVESTORS WHILE SERVING A HIGHER PUBLIC PURPOSE. IF YOU WANT TO CURE REALLY CARE A PROBLEM IN SOCIETY YOU NEED TO COME UP WITH A SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION AND THAT MEANS MAKING MONEY. END QUOTE. RATHER THAN USING TAX DOLLARS TO PAY FOR A NEW SCHOOL. BUILDING THAT WOULD BE OWNED BY THE TAXPAYER TWO FOOTED THE BILL ROCKET SHIP INSTEAD USES TAX DOLLARS TO PAY OFF BUILDINGS FOR INVESTORS WHO ARE ABLE TO TURN A REALISTIC PROFIT AT THE EXPENSE OF CHILDREN AND TAXPAYERS. FURTHERMORE CRITICS OF THE ROCKET SHIP MODEL POINT TO BOARD DOCUMENTS SUGGESTING THAT PROPERTY IS FUNDED BY AGASSI COSTTAXPAYERS MILLIONS MORE THAN OTHER FUNDING METHODS AND THESE CRITICS ALSO CONTEND THAT ROCKET SHIP CHARGES HEFTY MANAGEMENT FEES ABOUT TWICE WHAT LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS REQUIRE. HI MANAGEMENT FEES WOULD PRESENT A BIG PROBLEM FOR MOST SCHOOLS WOULD SPEND A MAJORITY OF FUNDING ON TEACHER SALARIES THE ROCKET SHIP IS SOLVED THIS PROBLEM WITH HIGH STUDENT TO TEACHER RATIOS AND USING TEACHING AIDS. AIDS PAID VERY LOW SALARIES INSTEAD OF CERTIFIED TEACHERS. ALL OF THIS AS WELL AS FEDERAL TAX CREDITS PER CREATE FERTILE GROUND FOR PROFIT CORPORATIONS AND INVESTORS TO REAP MILLIONS FROM OUR PURSUIT OF FUNDING. ANOTHER COST SAVING MEASURE UTILIZED BY ROCKET SHIP THAT COMES AT THE EXPENSE OF STUDENTS IS THE USE OF COMPUTERS RATHER THAN TEACHERS FOR INSTRUCTIONAL TIME. ACCORDING TO RICHARD WITH MEYER THE AUTHOR OF THE GENERALLY POSITIVE TWO THOUSAND THIRTEEN BOOK ON ROCKET SHIP HELL TOP CHARTER SCHOOLS ARE PUSHING THE ENVELOPE. A MAJOR COST SAVING SOLUTION IS FOR STUDENTS TO SPEND SIGNIFICANT TIME WORKING ON LAPTOPS IN LARGE GROUPS SIR SUPERVISED BY NON CERTIFIED. LOWER PAID QUOTE INSTRUCTIONAL LAB SPECIALIST. THESE LAB SPECIALISTS ARE ACTUALLY UNCERTIFIED TEACHING A TO MAKE MUCH LESS THAN TEACHERS. WHITMIRE EXPLAINS QUOTE STUDENTS ROTATING INTO LEARNING LABS MEANT IMPLYING FOR FEWER TEACHERS THUS A SCHOOL SUCH AS ROCKET SHIP MOSAIC IN CALIFORNIA COULD SUCCESSFULLY SERVE SIX HUNDRED AND THIRTY STUDENTS WITH ONLY SIX TEACHERS PLUS AIDS. AN NPR STORY STATES THAT ROCKET SHIP STUDENTS SPEND A FOURTH OF THE DAY ON CONFUSE ON COMPUTERS. STUDENTS IS LIKE YOUNG AS KINDERGARTEN ARE REGULARLY PLOP DOWN IN FRONT OF COMPUTER SCREENS AND ARE EXPECTED TO STAY SILENT STILL FOR LEARNING LAB TIME. LEARNINGLABS OFTEN SIR FIFTY SIXTY OR SEVENTY STUDENTS WHO ARE SUPERVISED BY A FEW ARE ONLY A COUPLE OF PEOPLE OFTEN WITHOUT FULL TEACHER TRAINING. NG TO MP ARE CLOSE. FIVE FORMER LEARNING LAB SUPERVISOR SAID CHRONIC TURNOVER MEETINGS AND SICK DAYS OFF AND LEFT THEM DOUBLE COACHING OR TRIPLE COACHING WATCHING SIXTY OR NINETY STUDENTS ALONE. BUT PERHAPS MOST CONCERNING TO ME IS ROCKET SHIPS USE OF EXTREME MILITARISTIC NO EXCUSES DISCIPLINARY MODEL STUDENTS ARE TOLD HOW TO MOVE WHERE TO STAND AND EVEN WHERE TO KEEP THEIR EYES FIXED. THEY ARE SUBJECTED TO ENFORCE SILENCE AT VARIOUS TIMES THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL DAY INCLUDING DURING LUNCH AND OTHER TIMES WHEN SOCIAL INTERACTION SHOULD TAKE PLACE. A ROCKET SHIP PARENT INTERVIEWED BY NPR MADE THIS STATEMENT QUOTE CHILDREN ARE ALLOWED TO USE THE BATHROOM DURING LONG CLASS PERIODS MY CHILD DEVELOPED A URINARY TRACT INFECTION AND IT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED. MANY CHILDREN ARE URINATING ON THEIR PANTS BECAUSE THEY’RE TAUGHT TEND NOT TO GO DURING THE DURATION OF THAT CLASS TIME I MANY TIMES ALL CHILDREN IN THE OFFICE WAITING FOR THEIR PARENTS TO SHOW UP DUE TO THE CHILD URINATING UNABLE TO HOLD IT ANY LONGER. AND OTHER TIMES WERE NOT NOTIFIED UNTIL THEIR CHILD SPOKE UP THIS IS NOT JUST HAPPENING KINDERGARTEN IT HAPPENS AND THE OTHER GRADES TOO. AT A TIME WHEN WE CLAIM AND THEN PS IS FOCUSED ON SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING HOW CAN WE ALLOW OUR PRECIOUS STUDENTS TO BE TREATED IN THIS FASHION. THESE NO EXCUSE TO DO IT NO EXCUSES METHODS ARE TERRIBLY DISTURBING TO ME BECAUSE I FIND THEM TO BE ABUSIVE TOWARDS CHILDREN. TIME AND AGAIN I HAVE RECEIVED DESPERATE COMPLAINTS FROM PARENTS WHOSE CHARTER SCHOOLS HAVE CHOSEN TO FOLLOW THIS NO EXCUSES MODEL. IT’S SIMPLY WRONG TO TREAT CHILDREN LIKE TINY MILITARY RECRUITS AT A TIME WHEN THEY SHOULD BE GROWING EXPLORING. LEARNING TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES AND LEARNING TO INTERACT. AND TO COOPERATE WITH OTHERS. WE ARE SUCKING THE SPARK OF CREATIVITY AND THE CHANCE TO LEARN AND EXPERIENCE EMPATHY AND COMPASSION FROM THESE LITTLE SOULS. OTHER COMPLAINTS ABOUT ROCKET SHIP ON A NATIONAL LEVEL INCLUDE TOO MUCH STANDARDIZED TESTING AND LACK OF TRANSPARENCY PUBLICLY ON SPENDING. HERE IN NASHVILLE WE HAVE DEALT WITH PROBLEMS WITH FROM ROCKET SHIP FOR YEARS THE FIRST ROCKET SHIP WHICH OPENED WITH GREAT FANFARE DUE TO A VISIT FROM ANDRE AGASSI CHOSE TO OPEN RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM JANICE ADULT TOY BOX CLEARLY NOT A CHOICE MADE WITH CHILDREN IN MIND. A FEW YEARS LATER THAT SCHOOL WAS POOR PERFORMING IN THE BOTTOM 3% OF SCHOOLS IN THE STATE. MMTS ALSO LEARNED THAT ROCKET SHIP WAS FORCING HOMELESS STUDENTS TO PAY FOR THEIR UNIFORMS FAILING TO PROVIDE MANDATED SERVICES TO ENGLISH LEARNERS AND VIOLATING FEDERAL LAW BY FAILING TO PROVIDE SERVICES TO SPECIAL NEEDS STUDENTS. DESPITE ITS DISMAL PERFORMANCE ROCKET SHIP AS CONTINUE TO TRY TO OPEN MORE SCHOOLS IN NASHVILLE. WHEN OUR LOCAL SCHOOL BOARD DECLINED TO APPROVE ANOTHER ROCKET SHIP CONTRACT IT APPEAL TO THE STATE WHERE IT’S THEN DIRECTOR SHAKA MITCHELL CALLED THE BOARD QUOTE SEGREGATIONISTS. FOR FAILING TO APPROVE HIS BOTTOM 3% SCHOOL. WHICH I FIND IRONIC BECAUSE STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT CHARTER SCHOOLS ACTUALLY INCREASE SCHOOL SEGREGATION. NEXT IN TWO THOUSAND EIGHTEEN THE STATE RUN ACHIEVEMENTSCHOOL DISTRICT FORCED OPEN A NEW ROBIN ROCKET SHIP HERE WITHOUT BOARD APPROVAL A SCHOOL THAT EMAN PS TAXPAYERS FUNDED BY THAT WE DID NOT WANT OR NEED. BUT WHEN THE SCHOOL COULDN’T TO ROLL ENOUGH STUDENTS TO TURN A PROFIT ROCKET SHIP SUDDENLY PULLED THE PLUG JUST MONTHS AFTER OPENING ITS NEW SCHOOL. AT THAT TIME WHICH WAS ONLY ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF AGO ROCKET SHIPS CHIEF GROWTH AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT OFFICER VALLE TO FOCUS ONLY ON ITS TWO EXISTING SCHOOLS. ROCKET SHIP OPERATORS OBVIOUSLY THINK NOTHING OF OPENING AND CLOSING SCHOOLS ON A WHIM REGARDLESS OF THE IMPACT ON THE COMMUNITY AND FAMILIES THAT THOSE SCHOOLS ARE. IT’S JUST BUSINESS AFTER ALL. THE CHILDREN ARE NOT COMMODITIES TO BE TOSSED ASIDE IN THE QUEST FOR PROFIT AND COMMUNITY SHOULD NOT BE TO USE AN INVESTOR TERM DISRUPTED FOR THE SAVE SAKE OF A BUSINESS MODEL. AND THERE ARE OTHER FINANCIAL ISSUES AS WELL THE TENNESSEAN ARTICLE FROM TWO THOUSAND SEVENTEEN BROUGHT UP SEVERAL PROBLEMS WITH ROCKET SHIP FOCUSED ON ITS LACK OF TRANSPARENCY. FIRST TO NATIONAL TAXPAYERS WHO GIVE MONEY TO ROCKET SHIP COULD BE FUNDING THE GROWTH OF CHARTER SCHOOLS IN OTHER STATES. AND WHILE WE FIND CHARTERS AND OTHER STATES THE GROWTH OF THE CHARTER SECTION SECTOR IN NATIONAL CONTINUES TO DRAIN OUR TRADITIONAL SCHOOLS OF DESPERATELY NEEDED FUNDING. SECOND THE TWO THOUSAND SEVENTEEN TENNESSEAN ARTICLE EXPLAIN THAT ROCKET SHIP IS BOLSTERED BY A TAX EXEMPT GOVERNMENT LINES WHICH WERE BEING ISSUED BY AN OBSCURE APPOINTED METRO BOARD WITH NO REAL OVERSIGHT. LOCAL LEADERS COMPLAINED THAT THESE BONDS WERE BEING ISSUED IN SECRET. FURTHERMORE THE BOARD ISSUING THE BONDS WAS ADVISED BY ATTORNEYS WHO ALSO TRUCKS SERVED AS CHARTER SCHOOL LOBBYISTS FOR WHAT WAS FORMALLY STUDENTS FIRST A CHARTER ADVOCACY ORGANIZATION THAT IS ENGAGED IN ALL SORTS OF DIRTY TACTICS AND PRACTICES AT OUR LEGISLATURE AND LOCAL CAMPAIGNS. IN SHORT THE LAWYERS PUSHED THROUGH BONDS FOR CHARTER SCHOOLS WHILE LOBBYING FOR THEIR EXPANSION AT THE TENNESSEE LEGISLATURE AT THE SAME TIME. FINALLY I’D LIKE TO ADDRESS ARGUMENTS ABOUT TEST SCORES. CHARTER SCHOOLS TEND TO PLAY FAR TOO MANY GAMES WITH THE ROMAN FOR ME TO FULLY TRUST THEIR TEST SCORES. CHARTERS OFTEN SERVE FEWER OF THE MOST CHALLENGING AND THE MOST COSTLY TO EDUCATE STUDENTS AND THEY SOMETIMES CHERRY PICK MORE DESIRABLE STUDENTS EITHER BY ENCOURAGING THOSE WHO STRUGGLE TO MOVE ALONG OR BY AVOIDING THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE. THE BULLS HAVE COMPLAINED TO ME THAT CHILDREN WHO HAVE THE LEAST BEEN RELEASED FROM ROCKET SHIP BACK TO THEIR TRADITIONAL PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE BEHIND AND STRUGGLE TO CATCH UP WITH THEIR PEERS. BUT EVEN ASSUMING THAT ROCKET SHIP IS LEGITIMATELY PRODUCING HIGHER TEST SCORES. I MUST ASK AT WHAT COST. ROCKET SHIP IS A TURN AND BURN DRILLING KILL TES PREP FACTORY DEVOID OF TRUE ENRICHMENT STIMULATION AND DEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE. SKEWS ME A DEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE INSTRUCTION FOR CHILDREN. WE SHOULD CARE ENOUGH ABOUT OUR CHILDREN’S EMOTIONAL. DEVELOPMENT AND THEIR WELL BEING TO DEMAND BETTER FOR THEM. FOR THESE REASONS AND MORE I AM VOTING AGAINST ROCKET SHIP TONIGHT. THANK YOU MUCH FOR US WITH ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS. OKAY. I ANY ACTUALLY ROCKET SHIP NUMBER THREE WILL BE. HAS BEEN PROPOSED TO BE IN MY DISTRICT DISTRICT STICKS IN ANY ODD AND AS I LISTEN TO MY COLLEAGUES TALK ABOUT THE EXTREME HORRIBLE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT OUR STUDENTS ARE UNDER NAIL IN THE PROGRAM I HAD TO ASK MYSELF. FIVE KIDS AND ALL BOYS AND ONE OF THEM TO HAVE A HEALTHY THRIVING ACADEMIC. FUTURE WHAT I SEND MY CHILD TO THIS SCHOOL I’VE ALWAYSHAD AS MIKE WHEN ASKED THAT QUESTION BECAUSE BEING MY OPPOSITION IS ALL ABOUT THE CHILDREN IT’S NEVER ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE IS ABOUT OUR CHILDREN’S ABOUT OUR TEACHERS AND WE WANT THE VERY BEST FOR THEM SO WE WANT YOU GUYS UNDERSTAND THAT IS WHAT OUR FOCUS AND OUR GOAL IS. BUT I HAVE TO DEFER THAT THIS IS NOT HEALTHY FOR A KID. I HAVE HAD FRIENDS THAT HAVE HAD THEIR CHILDREN IN CHARTER SCHOOLS UNDER THESE EXTREME CIRCUMSTANCES. AND THEY HAVE MENTALLY PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY CRASHED. WHILE TEN IN THOSE SCHOOLS. AND SO I HAD TO ASK MYSELF WHEN I PUT MY CHILDREN IN THIS SITUATION AND WHEN I PUT YOUR CHILDREN IN THE SITUATION. AND THE ANSWER IS NO. AND FOR THAT REASON I WILL BE VOTING NO THANK YOU. SO I HAVE A FEW DIFFERING SENTIMENTS ONLY BECAUSE I WANTED TO TAKE IT BACK TO THE CHILDREN AND NOT BE SO IDEOLOGY IDEOLOGICALLY FOCUSED MY ONLY REASON FOR NOT WANTING TO JUMP ON BOARD AND VOTE FOR THE START OF SCHOOL IS BECAUSE WE JUST. AS A SYSTEM DON’T HAVE FUNDING WE HAVE LIMITED DOLLARS JUST FLOATING AROUND NASHVILLE FOR EDUCATION WHEN IT COMES TO THE CITY IN THE STATE THEY ARE JUST NOT GIVING US THE FUNDING THAT WE NEED WHAT I WOULD DO IF. I DIFFERFROM SOME OF MY COLLEAGUES IN THAT I DON’T THINK THAT I JUST I THINK WE PLAY POLITICS A LOT WE TALK ABOUT TYPE THE SCHOOL’S NAME THE SCHOOLS WHAT’S HAPPENED IN THE PAST I’VE ACTUALLY BEEN TO A ROCKET SHIP I’VE SEEN THE DIFFERENT PROGRESS I’VE HEARD FROM PARENTS THAT THEY- APPRECIATE WHAT’S HAPPENING THERE. BUT WE DON’T HAVE THE FUNDING RIGHT NOW TO OUT SOURCE WE DON’T HAVE THE FUNDING RIGHT NOW TO SAY TO A CHARTER SCHOOL WE’RE GOING TO GIVE YOU THE MONEY TO DO WHAT WE NEED TO DO THAT SURE WE NEED ANOTHER SCHOOL IN SOUTH NASHVILLE FOR SURE. BUT WE JUST DON’T HAVE THE MONEY I DO THINK YOU KNOW YEARS DOWN THE LINE IF THE CITY AND STATE CAN PULL FROM WITHIN THEMSELVES TO GIVE US THE FUNDING THAT OUR STUDENTS TO STARVE TO DEATH. LIKE THE TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS STUDENT PRESIDENT THOUSAND PURSUE THAT WE’RE GETTING THERE WE CAN HAVE A DIFFERENT CONVERSATION BUT I WANTED TO REALLY JUST TALK ABOUT HOW THIS IMPACTS CHILDREN VERSES. LOOK AT THINGS IDEOLOGICALLY. I BELIEVE. THAT WHAT YOU OUGHT TO KNOW. WE ARE TRYING TO BE MORE BEFORE. NORTHEAST WHICH IS THE ONE THAT WAS HELD UP AS THE EXEMPLAR IN THIS QUOTE UNQUOTE REPLICATION APPLICATION WAS FOUND BY THE TENNESSEE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION TO BE DENIED ADEQUATE SERVICES ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS AND STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES AND FORCING HOMELESS STUDENTS TO PAY FOR UNIFORMS. THAT’S TWO YEARS AGO THAT’S NOT TOO FAR IN IN THE PAST AND SO WE’RE GONNA USE MEASURES OF PAST PERFORMANCE IN ORDER TO REVIEW A CHARTER APPLICATION THEN LET’S LOOK A LITTLE PET PAST TWO YEARS NUMBER ONE NUMBER TWO. YOU KNOW AS MISS BROKE SUGGESTED. LAST YEAR A ROCKET SHIP SCHOOL COLLAPSED IN NORTH NATIONAL FOUR BLOCKS FROM DENOVIS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL BECAUSE OF POOR ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE. AND LACK OF ABILITY TO ENROLL STUDENTS THAT’S A YEAR AGO. ALL RIGHT SO PAST PERFORMANCE LET’S ACTUALLY LOOK AT PAST PERFORMANCE NOT JUST WHAT THE CHARTER OPERATORS SUBMITS. AS PAST PERFORMANCE YOU KNOW THE REVIEW TEAM I MEAN I HATE TO. SAY THIS I’VE BEEN GENERALLY IMPRESSED WITH READ REVIEW TEAMS WORK OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS BUT- THE REVIEW TEAM COMPLETELY MISSED ON THIS ONE DOCTOR BATTLE AND YOU KNOW AND- THIS NEVER SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN TO THIS POINT. AND FURTHERMORE THERE’S A LITTLE BIT OF A GROUNDHOG DAY ASPECT TO THIS THIS IS HOW. THE SCHOOL DISTRICT USED TO DO BUSINESS IN THE PAST FROM 200-012-2000 AND FIFTEEN. YOU KNOW IT WOULD BE A RAFFLE TO CHARTER APPLICATIONS A RAFFLE OF RECOMMENDED APPROVALS RAFFLE OF APPEALS. APPEALS APPEALS SPECIAL MEETINGS AND ALL THIS STUFF SO I REALLY ENCOURAGE YOU ALL TO DON’T GO BACKWARD. GO FORWARD A LOT OF PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE IN THIS IS. SLIDING BACKWARD IN MY OPINION AND THE LAST THING I WOULD SAY IS. ROCKET SHIP IS NOT AN APPLICATION PROVIDER IT’S A IT’S A REALIST COMPANY THE PROCEEDS. THEY GET THE PUBLIC PERCEIVES. GO TO A LL SEE THE LIABILITY BRIDGE HELLO. HE GETS. FROM OTHER STATES AND REDISTRIBUTED. TO OTHER LOCATIONS AROUND THE COUNTRY. THAT’S AN ISSUE THAT THE LEGISLATURE NEEDS TO DEAL WITH THE KIND OF STEALING OF NATIONAL IN TENNESSEE TAXPAYER DOLLARS AND SENDING THEM. TO OTHER STATES BUT UP FOR ALL THOSE REASONS INCLUDING EVERYTHING ELSE HAS BEEN DISCUSSED HERE I’M VOTING NO. CONNECTICUT RESTAURANT. THANK YOU AS VICE CHAIR AMY FOLKS SAID THERE’S A LOT TO BE SAID TO MAKE SURE THAT WE’RE ON THE RECORD FOR IT I WANNA MAKE SURE THAT I ALSO SAY THAT I GO A LOT% OF THE SENTIMENTS THAT I PERSONALLY HAVE A LOT OF MORAL CONCERNS ALONG WITH A SOUND LIKE A LOT OF MY COLLEAGUES ABOUT HAVING IN THE PAST HOMELESS STUDENTS PAY FOR THE UNIFORMS TO HAVE A ISSUE WITH. OUR FEDERALLY REGULATED NEEDS FOR OUR CHILDREN EXCEPTIONAL AT IN SPECIAL ED. AND ALONG WITH OUR ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS I FEEL PARTICULARLY WITH THIS BEING HISPANIC AWARENESS MONTH. THAT WE SHOULD BE MORE CAREFUL AND MORE VIGILANT TO THOSE THINGS. ADDITIONALLY I. I HAVE A STRONG DESIRE FOR US TO BE CAREFUL WITH OUR VERY FEW DOLLARS THAT WE HAVE. FOR OUR SCHOOLS OUR BUDGET AND THE NEEDS THAT WE HAVE FOR THE BUDGET THAT WE- LIMITED THE VERY LIMITED BUDGET THAT YOU ALL THAT WE HAVE. WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WITH IT AND SO ALSO OUT OF COUNCILMAN A KERRY COUNCIL MATIC COURTESY. I ALSO WILL BE VOTING AGAINST THIS AS WELL. ALL THOSE TOGETHER. ANYBODY ELSE WANT TO COMMENT SMITH TOOK A WALK I WANT TO JUST SAY THAT I SERVED AS THE CHAIR OF THE CHARTER REVIEW COMMITTEE FOR SEVERAL YEARS I KNOW IT’S A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF WORK THAT GOES INTO THAT PROCESS I UNDERSTAND THAT THEY’RE WORKING WITHIN THE CONFINES OF A ROOF RACK AND THE DETAILS IN THE IT’S SORT OF A- THE INFORMATION HAS. PRESENTED I ALSO WANT TO SAY IT’S NOT INSIGNIFICANT REGARDLESS OF. HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT INSTRUCTIONAL MODEL THAT THE SCHOOL HAS ACHIEVED GROWTH AT THE SCALE THAT IT HAS ACHIEVED. I DO BELIEVE THAT PARENTS THE PARENTS IN THIS ROOM WANT THE VERY BEST FOR THEIR CHILDREN AND THEY WANT TO. FIND A PLACE FOR THEIR CHILDREN CAN THRIVE I BELIEVE THAT PARENTS. ARE THE VERY BEST JUDGE OF WHAT’S BEST FOR THEIR CHILDREN. AND SO AND I ALSO RESPECT THE OPINIONS AND THE AND THE SORT OF EVIDENCE PUT FORWARD BY MY COLLEAGUES HERE ON THE FLOOR THIS IS NOT AN EASY DECISION I RESPECT THE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT. A BUDGETARY CONSTRAINTS ALL OF THAT IS REAL BUT I ALSO KNOW THAT FAMILIES PARTICULARLY AND THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE COUNTY ARE LOOKING FOR BETTER OPTIONS I UNDERSTAND THAT SCHOOLS ARE CROWDED IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE COUNTY THIS IS A COMPLICATED CONVERSATION. I THINK WE SHOULD BE DOING THE SAME DUE DILIGENCE FOR SCHOOLS THAT ARE NOT SERVING CHILDREN WELL. ACROSS THE DISTRICT AND DOING OUR HOMEWORK ON WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THOSE SCHOOLS AND HOW WE IMPROVE OUTCOMES FOR KIDS. IN ALL OF OUR SCHOOLS AND SO I JUST WANNA. THANK THE COMMITTEE FOR THEIR HARD WORK COM I KNOW IT’S A LOT OF WORK I’VE DONE I DID THAT WORK HOURS AND HOURS OF HOMEWORK. AND SO ON I THINK FAMILIES FOR COMING OUT TONIGHT. YES OF ANY COMMENTS. CAFFEIC RIPPER FROM EVERYBODY WE DO HAVE A- MOTION ON THE FLOOR THAT WAS PROPERLY SECONDED TO DENY. THE ROCKET SHIP APPLICATION. SO SHOW OF HANDS TO APPROVE THIS MOTION TO DENY ROCKET SHIP. OKAY. WEARING THANK YOU COLLEAGUES. SO WE’LL MOVE ON TO THE DIRECTOR’S REPORT WHICH IS. MIPS ENERGY PROGRAM UPDATE DOCTOR BATTLE. ADD YOUR EXITING PLEASE DO SO QUIETLY SO WE CAN HAVE THE REST FOR A SCHOOL BOARD MEETING I APPRECIATE IT THANK YOU. THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR VICE CHAIR MEMBERS OF THE BOARD. WE’RE PROUD OF THE GOOD WORK ARE IN THE PS FACILITY TEAM DOES TO KEEP OUR BUILDINGS IN GOOD SHAPE AND OUR STUDENTS AND EMPLOYEES SAFE. WE HAVE A COUPLE OF UPDATES FROM THEM THIS EVENING OUR TEAM HAS BEEN WORKING TOWARDS REDUCING THE ENERGY CONSUMPTION IN OUR DISTRICT FOR THE PAST FEW YEARS. THE GOALS OF THE IMAGERY PROGRAM ARE TO REDUCE CALLS FOR ENERGY UTILITIES SO THAT WE CAN FOCUS AS MANY RESOURCES AS POSSIBLE DIRECTLY INTO STUDENT EDUCATION AND TO BE GOOD STEWARDS OF OUR ENVIRONMENT. THE TEAM HE IS HERE TONIGHT UPDATE US ON THE PROGRESS THEY’VE BEEN MAKING ALL THE ENERGY PROGRAM THIS YEAR. BUT FIRST EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF FACILITIES MAINTENANCE CONSTRUCTION. DAVID PROPER WILL UPDATE US ON AIR QUALITY TESTING IN OUR SCHOOLS AND OTHER BUILDINGS THEY’VE A PROFIT. THANK YOU DOCTOR BATTLE. MISS SHEPHERD AND BOARD A POLITICIAN. IN LIGHT OF SOME OF THE REPORTS THAT YOU MAY HAVE HEARD ABOUT RATE ON TESTING AND THAT SORT OF THING THAT HAS COME ABOUT IN THE LAST FEW WEEKS I WANTED TO UPDATE YOU ON WHAT WE DO WHAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING AND WHAT WE WILL. CONTINUE DOING AS WE GO FORWARD. A LITTLE HISTORY VERY BRIEFLY IN TWO THOUSAND AND ELVEN. METRO COUNCIL MANDATED THAT THE- METROPOLITAN. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH. METROPOLITAN NATIONAL DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH. CONDUCT RAID ON TESTS IN OUR SCHOOLS. IN IN QUITE FRANKLY IN ALL METRO OWN PUBLIC. FACILITIES IN DOING SO THEY ESTABLISH WHAT IS CALLED. THE REGULATION NINE WHICH IS A SET OF REGULATIONS FOR. TESTING AND RIGHT ON. FIRST AND FOREMOST I WANT TO ASSURE EVERYONE SITTING AT THAT PANEL ON THE POOR PERSONS BEHIND ME. OUR COMMUNITIES AS A WHOLE AS WE RIGHT NOW IS FUN ALL OF OURG- SCHOOLS HAVE SAFE ENVIRONMENTS. ANY OF OUR ACTIONABLE LEVELS ON OUR TESTER FAR BELOW ANYTHING THAT IS WOULD BE CONSIDERED ALARMING AT ALL. SOMEONE MAKE THAT PERFECTLY CLEAR AS WE GO FORWARD WE HAVE SINCE TWO THOUSAND ELEVEN WE’VE BEEN LITTLE OF REVIEWING THOSE REPORTS AND TAKING ACTIONS TO REMEDIATE THE LEVELS OF RATE ON IN OUR SCHOOLS. AND WE’RE GOING TO TAKE SOME PREEMPTIVE MEASURES ALL TALK ABOUT JUST A MOMENT. THE THING TO KNOW WITH THAT PIECE OF INFORMATION IS THAT. WE FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES THAT ARE. PROVIDED TO US BY THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH. DEPENDING ON THOSE LEVELS WOULD INDICATE WHAT STEPS WE NEED TO TAKE AND WHEN WE NEED TO TAKE THEM. CERTAIN LEVELS WOULD REQUIRE. THE. TESTING TO BE TAKING PLACE OVER A TWENTY FOUR MONTH PERIOD FOR EXAMPLE DEPENDING ON WHAT WHAT LEVELS THAT WE SEE IN OUR TEST. SO. AND A WE ALSO NEED TO KNOW THAT RATE ON TO LET YOU KNOW RATE ON IS IN OUR EVERYDAY HERE EVERYTHING EVERY DAY THAT YOU BRING EITHER YOU’RE AT SOME LEVEL OF RATE ON ITS IN OUR GROUND IT’S A NATURALLY DECOMPOSING. MINERAL IN OUR IN OUR SOULS. IT’S INVISIBLE TASTELESS. AND SO IT’S SOMETHING THAT WE DEAL WITH AND THE MEDICATION METHODS THAT WE DEAL WITH IT WHICH MAY MEAN ADJUSTING OUR MECHANICAL SYSTEMS WITHIN OUR SCHOOLS IT MAY MEAN FILLING CRACKS OUR BOYS AND OUR FLOORS WERE THE RAID ON IS KNOWN TO EXIST. IT MAY BE. THE INCORPORATION OF A PASSIVE SYSTEM WITHIN OUR OUR BUILDINGS WHICH IS. PIPES BELOW THE FLOOR SLAB THAT ACT AS A CHIMNEY UP THROUGH THE ROOF OR TURNING THOSE PASSIVE SYSTEMS AND ACTIVE SYSTEMS BY PLACING FANS ON ON THOSE FIVE. THE POINT IS THAT WE TAKE THOSE TESTER OR OR THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT TAKES THOSE TEST. WE REVIEW THOSE TESTS FIGURES WE LOOK AT THE INDIVIDUAL CONCERNS. MARK THOUGH THAT THE TEST RESULTS ARE SHOWING. AND WE MITIGATE THOSE AND THEN THERE IS A RE TESTING PROCESS. AND THEN DEPENDING ON THE RE TESTING PROCESS THAN WE HAVE. MITIGATION. EFFORTS THAT WE MAKE TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE GO AWAY. BUT ONCE WE GET INTO AN ACTIVE SYSTEM. THE LEVELS WILL ALWAYS GO DOWN IT’S JUST THAT IF YOU CAN CONTROL THEM BY JUST MEANS OF NORMAL HVAC. EFFORTS IN IN MAKING SURE THAT THOSE SYSTEMS ARE EFFICIENTLY RUNNING PROPERLY THEN WE CAN WE CAN MITIGATE THOSE THOSE THINGS. ARE LESS FOR LAST RESULTS OF OUR TEST THEY’VE ALWAYS BEEN ONLINE BY THE WAY WE DID FIND OUT JUST RECENTLY THAT THE TEST RESULTS WEREN’T ONLINE AND WE AT THE MAINLY TOOK ACTIONS TO RE LOAD THOSE SO THEY’RE ALWAYS AVAILABLE. IT’S ON OUR WEB PAGE I BELIEVE IT’S AIR QUALITY OF RESULTS ARE AIR QUALITY TESTING ON THE WEB PAGE SO YOU’LL ALWAYS HAVE THOSE THERE YOU CAN SEE YOUR SCHOOLS YOU CAN SEE WHEN THEY WERE TESTED WHAT LEVELS THEY WERE TESTED WHAT ROOMS SPECIFICALLY WERE TESTED. AND THEN. CHOOSE ME. AND THEN WHAT SECOND INPUT POSSIBLY THIRD TEST PLOTS. WERE THERE WERE TWENTY FOUR SCHOOLS THROUGHOUT THE DISTRICT THAT THAT HAD ACTIONABLE LEVELS. AND WHEN THEY WERE RETESTED THEY STILL HAD SOME ACTIONABLE LEVELS THAT HAD TO BE TAKEN CARE OF EIGHT OF THOSE SCHOOLS. NO LONGER HAVE THE ACTUAL LEVELS. EITHER BASED UPON MY VARIOUS FACTORS MOST OF THEM OF WHAT WE HAVE TAKEN IN TERMS OF WHAT WE’VE DONE IN TERMS OF. MITIGATING THE CIRCUMSTANCES IN WHICH THE RAID ON HAS BEEN TESTED AT CERTAIN LEVELS. SO I’LL LEAVE IT AT THAT I THINK THAT’S YOU KNOW I JUST WANT TO ASSURE YOU THAT WERE ON IT WE TALKED OUR PRINCIPLES. IN FACT WE TALKED TO THE PRINT THE TWENTY FOUR. DIFFERENT GROUPS OR MOST OF THEM TODAY IN FACT ABOUT WHAT. WE’RE DOING WHAT WE’RE GOING TO BE DOING A ONE OF THE THINGS ON THE SAY THIS TOO THIS IS ALSO IMPORTANT. THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT PRESCRIBES WHEN THEY TEST AND WHEN THINGS ARE RETESTED NOT IMPIOUS. WITH THAT SAID ONCE WE FINDA LEVEL THAT IS OF AN ACTIONABLE LEVEL TO REMEDIATE WE’RE GOING TO TAKE SOME PREEMPTIVE TEST MEASURES OURSELVES TO LOOK AT THOSE. VERY SHORTLY AFTER WE RECEIVE THE RESULTS WILL CONTACT THE PRINCIPLES SO THAT THEY CAN DETERMINE WHAT THEY NEED TO DO WITH THEIR OWN COMMUNITIES AND IN TERMS OF INFORMATIONAL EXERCISE THAT THEY MAY PERFORM. BUT WE WANT TO TAKE OUR OWN LEVELS AND BEGIN THAT PROCESS. WELL IN ADVANCE OF WHEN A RETESTING BY THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT OCCURS. SO IF WE CAN GET A JUMP ON IT WE WILL AND THAT’S THAT’S OUR GOAL AND TO BE A LITTLE BIT MORE AGGRESSIVE WITH IT THEN WHAT THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT MIGHT REQUIRE. OKAY SO WITH THAT DOCTORBATTLE WILL TURN IT OVER TO INTRODUCE CASEY MAY GO OR SYSTEM DIRECTOR OF FACILITY PLANNING AND CONSTRUCTION OF BRUCE REZNIK. OUR ENERGY MANAGER TO GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON THE ENERGY PROGRAM. THAT WE’VE BEGUN IN OUR DEPARTMENT. THANK YOU FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY TO UPDATE YOU ON AN EXCITING WORK WE’VE BEEN DOING IN OUR ENERGY CONSERVATION PROGRAM AGAIN MY NAME IS CASEY MEGA THIS IS BRUCE RASPING. AND I ALSO WANTED TO INTRODUCE TO OTHER MEMBERS OF OUR TEAM THEY’RE HERE TONIGHT MATT SPENDS AND DAVID DEAN. THERE BACK IN THE BACK. SO QUICKLY. GOING THROUGH A BRIEF HISTORY IN TWO THOUSAND TEN WE BEGAN DESIGNING AND CONSTRUCTING ENERGY EFFICIENT BUILDINGS OUT THROUGH OUR LEAD PROGRAM WHICH YOU JUST HEARD PENNINGTON GOT LEAD SILVER AND THAT MAKES EIGHTEEN BUILDINGS THAT WE HAVE LEAD SILVER WE ALSO HAVE TO LEAD GOLD BUILDING SO THEY’RE JUST MEETING AN EVEN HIGHER G. ENERGY EFFICIENCY STANDARDS AND TUSCULUM ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN EAGLE VIEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL FOR THE FIRST TWO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL OR TO PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN THE STATE OF TENNESSEE TO RECEIVE. ADMISSION. NOW THE DISTRICT’S CURRENT ENERGY INITIATIVE BEGAN IN TWENTY SIXTEEN SINCE ITS INCEPTION WE HAVE DONE SOME LIMITED CAPITAL BUILDING IMPROVEMENTS INCLUDING LED LIGHTINGUPGRADES REFER PLACEMENTS. AND HVAC EQUIPMENT REPLACEMENTS NOW AS WE’VE DONE THE SYSTEM CHANGE OUT IN OUR BUILDINGS WE ARE BRINGING THEM UP TO MODERN STANDARDS CURRENT CODES INCLUDING ENERGY EFFICIENCY REQUIREMENTS. OUR BIGGEST SAVINGS THAT SECOND BULLET IS HOW WE’VE ACHIEVED SAVINGS TODAY NOT SHOW YOU A SLIDE IN JUST A MINUTE ON SOME OF OUR SUCCESSES THUS FAR. BUT THIS IS CHANGING SET POINTS SO DURING NON SCHOOL HOURS SO. OUTSIDE OF THE HOURS BEFORE AND AFTER CARED ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS AND THEN AFTER PROGRAMS ARE DONE CLUB SPORTS AT MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOLS WE TURN THE TEMPERATURE UP IN THE SUMMER OR DOWN IN THE WINTER SO WE’RE NOT TURNING THE SYSTEMS ALL. WE’RE ACTUALLY JUST SETTING THAT HIGHER OR LOWER DEPENDING ON THE WEATHER OUTSIDE AND THIS IS CREATED A SIGNIFICANT ENERGY SAVINGS THUS FAR WE’VE ALSO SINCE WE’VE HAD OUR ENERGY CONSULTANT ON BOARD WE’VE BEEN GATHERING AND ANALYZING AND MOUNTAIN OF DATA. AND BRUCE WILL TELL YOU A LITTLE BIT LATER IN THE PRESENTATION ABOUT HOW DATA HAS BEEN INFORMING. THE DECISIONS THAT WERE MAKING HONORS G. SAVINGS PROGRAM. NOW WE DO HAVE AN ENERGY CONSULTANT ON BOARD WE PUT OUT AN RFP EARLIER THIS YEAR. AND THE CONTRACT WAS. APPROVED BY THE BOARD IN APRIL. YOU ALSO MAY RECALL THAT IN MARCH OF THIS YEAR WE PRESENTED VARIOUS OPTIONS FOR CONTRACTING WITH THE ENERGY CONSULTANT TO THE BUDGET AND FINANCE COMMITTEE. AND THESE OPTIONS INCLUDED A SHARED SAVINGS MODEL A PAYMENT UP FRONT OPTION IN A CONSULTATION OF MODEL. THE CURRENT CONTRACT THAT WE HAVE A SITE LOGIC IS FOR CONSULTATION OF SERVICES WE PAY THEM DIRECTLY FOR THE SOFTWARE LICENSE AND FOR THE MAN HOURS THAT THEY INVEST DIRECTLY WITH HIM IN KESSEN THIS ENERGY PROGRAM. THIS METHOD GIVES US THE MOST CONTROL OVER ENERGY PROGRAM. AS WELL AS ALL OF THE AVOIDED COST I’M DIRECTLY BACK TO US. NOW WE HAVE HAD OTHER VENDORS INTERESTED IN CONTRACTING WITH US AND BY PASSING THIS R. P. PROPS PROCESS. THOSE VENDORS SOME OF THEM USE PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE WHICH MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR US TO VERIFY THEIR CLAIMS COST AVOIDANCE. OTHER PROGRAMS REQUIRE CAPITAL OUTLAY FOR THE UPGRADES IN THE ENERGY SAVINGS. AND EVEN SOME ARE HAVE A DISPROPORTIONAL AMOUNT OF SAVINGS THAT GO TO THE VENDOR INSTEAD OF TO US IN ORDER TO PAY BACK THOSE UP FRONT ADVANCES ON ENERGY SAVINGS. NOW MOST OF THESE VENDORS HOWEVER POACHED AS THEY HAVE PROPOSED THAT THE SHARED SAVINGS MODEL. AND THIS MODEL WOULD PUT HIM IN PS IN AN ADVERSARIAL POSITION WITH OUR ENERGY CONSULTANTS AND POTENTIALLY REQUIRE US TO MAKE CHANGES IN OUR BUILDINGS THAT WOULD PUT OUR OCCUPANCY IN. PERSONAL DISCOMFORT AND TO MAXIMIZE ENERGY SAVINGS SO THAT THE VENDOR COULD PUT THE MOST MONEY IN THEIR OWN POCKET. OUR CURRENT CONTRACTING METHOD THIS ALIGNS WITH OUR FOCUS OF THE ENERGY PROGRAM WE WANT TO MAINTAIN STAFF AND STUDENT COMFORT WHILE MAXIMIZING YOUR ENERGY SAVINGS. SO VERY SIMPLY. OUR GOAL IS TO SAVE AS MUCH MONEY AS A TO AVOID AS MUCH COST AS POSSIBLE ON UTILITIES. SO THAT WE CAN DIVERT RESOURCES DIRECTLY TO THE STUDENTS IN THE CLASSROOM. THE GOAL OF OUR ENERGY PROGRAM IS TO LOWER ENERGY CONSUMPTION BY 16% OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS. NOW KEEP IN MIND THIS IS ACHIEVED WITHOUT ANY CAPITAL SO IF WE DO MAKE CAPITAL UPGRADES TO OUR BUILDING LED LIGHTING OR NEW MODERN HVAC EQUIPMENT WE HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR EVEN MORE SAVINGS. NOW AGAIN OUR CURRENT CONTRACTING METHOD WE SAVE MORE. WE GET MORE. 16% SO THAT COMES FROM COMPARING OURSELVES TO OTHER SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN TENNESSEE AND ACROSS THE NATION A 60% REDUCTION WILL BRING US IN LINE WITH HOW OTHER DISTRICTS ARE CURRENTLY EFFICIENTLY OPERATING. AND THAT 60% TRANSLATES INTO A TEN MILLION DOLLAR COST AVOIDANCE OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS. SO THE NEXT TWO SLIDES WILL SHOW YOU HOW WE’VE CALCULATED THE SAVINGS. SO AGAIN WE’RE TRYING TO SAVE TEN MILLION DOLLARS OR AVOID TEN MILLION DOLLARS IN UTILITY COST OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS. THIS GRAPH ILLUSTRATES HOW WE CALCULATE AVOIDED COST. THE BLUE LINE IS THE LAST FOUR YEARS OF ACTUAL ENERGY COSTS NO THIS IS JUST NATURAL GAS ELECTRICITY WATER IS NOT REPRESENTED IN THESE NUMBERS. SINCE IT’S NOT A COST OF A OF AN ENERGY COMPONENT OF A BUILDING. BUT AS YOU CAN SEE THE M. P. S. ENERGY MANAGEMENT TEAM HAS ALREADY MADE SIGNIFICANT SUCCESS AND ENERGY SAVINGS FROM TWO YEARS AO TO LAST YEAR. AND THE DASH STRAIGHT LINE THAT REPRESENTS OUR ANTICIPATION OF ENERGY COST IF NO FURTHER ENERGY UPGRADES ARE MADE TO OUR BUILDINGS. WE ANTICIPATE UTILITY RATES TO INCREASE 326% A YEAR. IN THE COMING YEARS. AND THE GREEN LINE THAT’S OUR PROGRAM GOAL. NOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THAT GREEN LINE IN THE RED LINE THAT’S OUR TEN MILLION DOLLARS IN AVOIDED COST. SO OUR GOAL IS TO LOWER OUR INTERN UTILITY COSTS IN THE COMING YEAR AND THEN BEAT INFLATION FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS. SO THIS MEANS THAT ARE TWENTY ONE MILLION DOLLAR BUDGET FOR NATURAL GAS AND ELECTRICITY WILL NOT NEED TO INCREASE FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS. NOW PLEASE REALIZE I’M GONNA THROW ANY CAVIAR. THAT THIS INCLUDES NORMAL WEATHER OKAY WERE. THE HOT SPELL THAT WE JUST HAD THAT CHANGES A LITTLE BIT OVER NUMBERS BUT LIKEWISE IF WE HAVE A MILD WINTER. WE KEEP THAT SAVINGS BECAUSE OF HOW WE HAVE OUR CONTRACTS THAT UP. SO WHILE THE DOLLARS ARE IMPORTANT ALSO BEING STEWARDS GETS YOU IS OUR OF OUR ENVIRONMENT IS IMPORTANT AND THIS IS THE GRAPH THAT REALLY EXCITES ME AS I’M A BIG TREE HUGGER SORRY. THIS SHOWS OUR ENERGY CONSUMPTION TRENDS SO AGAIN THE BLUE LINE IS THE LAST FOUR YEARS OF ENERGY. USAGE AND OUR DISTRICT AND AGAIN I WANT TO POINT OUT THAT THE ENERGY MANAGEMENT TEAM HAS ALREADY BEEN ABLE TO SAVE ROUGHLY FIVE PERCENT. THROUGH THE MEASURES THAT WE’VE ALREADY PUT IN PLACE. THE RED DASH LINE THAT’S OUR BASELINE SO THAT’S WHAT WE ASSUME IF WE YOU KNOW CONTINUE ON THE TRACK WERE ON WITH NO ADDITIONAL CHANGES TO THE DISTRICT. THE GREEN LINE THAT’S WHERE WE’RE SEEING ARE FULLY IMPLEMENTED ENERGY SAVINGS PLAN IN THE DISTRICT. SO WE’RE ANTICIPATING ABOUT 8% THIS FIRST YEAR AND THEN AGAIN IN 223% KIND OF STAYING WITH INFLATION. A DECREASE IN ENERGY USE OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS. SO AGAIN THAT 16% GOAL THAT WE SET FOR CONSUMPTION SAVINGS WITH CONTINUED IMPROVEMENT AND ARE EFFICIENT USE OF BUILDINGS THAT’S HOW WE BEAT INFLATION AND THAT’S HOW WE STAY HAVE A STUDY BUDGET FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS. OKAY I’M THROWING MY COUNTY OUT AGAIN. THIS IS PREDICTING NORMAL WEATHER AND WE DO EXPECT VARIATIONS DEPENDING ON WHAT MOTHER NATURE HANDS US. SO I KNOW YOU’RE WONDERING RIGHT NOW HOW DO WE MAKE THIS HAPPEN HOW DO WE GET THERE SO THAT’S WHERE BRUCE IS GOING TO TAKE IT OVER BECAUSE HE IS THE EXPERT ON THE SUBJECT. HELLO EVERYONE THANK YOU. SO YOU KNOW CASEY’S PUT A PUT A GOOD GOAL IN PLACE FOR US AND THE BIG THING IS HOW HOW WE CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN AND THAT’S WHERE OUR PARTNERS OF COMMAND AND REALLY KIND OF SET THE BAR FORCE AND HELPED US UNDERSTAND WHAT OUR POTENTIAL IS. BUT THE BIG THING WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY UNDERSTOOD FROM US IS WE’RE GONNA DO IS REACH FOR THAT GOAL BUT WE HAVE EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT THAT WE NEED TO MAINTAIN WE WILL MAKE. SURE THAT THE STUDENTS AND STAFF COMFORT IS. A PRIORITY AS WERE MAKING THESE ADJUSTMENTS. IN AS YOU CAN SEE ON THE SLIDE.% THAT STAFF AND STUDENT COMFORT IS THE ENTER OF HOW WE’RE DOING THIS PROCESS. YOU KNOW AND IF WE JUST GO AROUND THE YOU KNOW. BUT MY POINT HERE. THE PROGRAM UPDATES THIS IS A FLUID THIS PROCESS IS FLUID AND DYNAMIC. IT’S EVER EVOLVING WE’RE GOING TO GO IN AND START IN ONE DIRECTION WE’RE GONNA FIND OPPORTUNITY THAT TAKES A LITTLE BIT IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION. WE MAY START DOWN THE PATH THAT WE REALIZE HEY THIS IS NOT GOING TO GIVE US THE POTENTIAL SAVINGS THAT WE THOUGHT AND WE NEED TO BACK UP A LITTLE BIT SO. WE’RE CONSTANTLY UPDATING OUR PROGRAM. THE STAFF AND STUDENT EDUCATION THE BIG PIECE. WE NEED THE OUR OUR STUDENTS AND OUR STAFF TO REALLY TEACHERS ESPECIALLY TO REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO DO HERE. TO HELP WELL WE’RE GONNA EDUCATE OUR KIDS TO UNDERSTAND. WHAT THE POTENTIAL WE HAVE AND WHAT THEY HAVE AS POTENTIAL ENERGY. SERVERS IN THE FUTURE. THE BIG THING IS WE WANT TO SHOW THEM AS WERE EDUCATING THEM HOW THEY CAN CONTRIBUTE TO OUR GOAL REWORKED IN TENNIS. WE HAVE OPPORTUNITIES THAT SITE LOGIC IS IDENTIFIED THROUGH THE COURSE OF THEIR WORKING WITH OTHER DESTRUCTION THAT ACROSS THE COUNTRY. THEY’RE VERY ADVANTAGEOUS. WE HAVEN’T PUT ANY OF THOSE IN PLACE YET. BUT IF THERE IS OPPORTUNITY THERE PRESSED RESEARCHING DETERMINED WHETHER THAT’S SOMETHING WE COULD DO WHERE WE WOULD ACTUALLY WARD. OUR OUR SCHOOLS OUR STUDENTS ARE SMALL TEAMS WHATEVER WE DECIDE FOR THEIR CONTRIBUTION TO OUR PROGRAM. OUR COMMUNITY AND OUTREACH SO THIS IS WHERE WE SHARE WHAT WE’RE DOING THIS IS WHAT WE SHARE HOW WE’RE DOING IT SHARE OUR SUCCESSES. AND A LOT OF THIS IS GOING TO COME THROUGH DASHBOARDS PART OF THESE DATA DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYTICAL. YOU KNOW PIECE THAT CASEY MENTIONED. WE HAVE A DASHBOARD THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO OUR TEACHERS TO OUR STAFF TO OUR PARENTS AND COMMUNITY. EVERYONE CAN SEE WHAT’S GOING ON LIVE AS SUCH. HOW WE’RE DOING. ONE SCHOOL ONLY TO THAN OTHERS SO THAT’S THAT PART THERE. AND THEN CONTINUE OPERATION IMPROVEMENT THIS IS WALKING THE WALK. WE COME UP WITH THESE PROCEDURES THAT WE DECIDE IS A GOOD OPPORTUNITY FOR WORSE THE SCHEDULING AFTER HOURS AS CASEY MENTIONED. WE HAVE SEVERAL OTHER OPPORTUNITIES THAT WE’VE IDENTIFIED ESPECIALLY DURING THOSE TIMES WHEN SCHOOLS ARE ON OCCUPIED THAT WE CAN REALLY. REDUCE HOW MUCH WE’RE SPENDING THIS IS WHAT WE PUT THOSE PROCEDURES AND PLANS IN PLACE. AND HOW WE GET THAT DONE. SO THE ACTIONS WE TAKE THIS IS A LIST IT’S- MAYBE FIFTEEN OR TWENTY ITEMS WOULD PROBABLY HAVE ANOTHER TWO HUNDRED WE COULD ADD TO THIS LIST. I’M NOT GOING TO SECURE BORE YOU WITH ALL THE DETAILS OF THE TWENTY FIGHTERS BUT I DO HAVE A COUPLE THAT LIKE TO HIGHLIGHT. FIRST ONE IS ESTABLISHED. TWO TEAMS IS THE FIRST CALL ABOUT THREE FOR ABOUT FIVE DOWN I GUESS. IN THE BIG THING HERE IS THIS IS WHERE WE IT’S A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO ENERGY MANAGEMENT. MY TEAM OF MYSELF AND TO. EMPLOYEES THERE’S NO WAY. OF THE GOALS THAT WE SET. WITH THAT SMALL THE TEAM. BUT IF WE CAN. BRING EVERYONE TOGETHER FROM THE TOP DOWN BOTTOM UP APPROACH. WE CAN REALLY HARNESS THIS POTENTIAL THAT WE’VE WE’VE IDENTIFIED. YOU KNOW THE BIGGEST THING FOR HERE IS THESE TEAMS WOULD BE ABLE TO GIVE US OVERSIGHT ON THOSE COMFORT THINGS THAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE NOT. CROSSING THAT LINE I WILL MAKE SURE THAT WE’RE FOCUSING ON THE EDUCATIONAL SIDE OF THINGS THAT WE’RE NOT PUTTING OUR- OUR STUDENTS AND OUR TEACHERS AT A PLACE WHERE COMFORT IS AN ISSUE. WE WANNA. GET AS MUCH SAVINGS AS WE CAN BUT WE WANT TO DO IT IN IN A WAY THAT THAT. KEEPS THAT COMFORT IN BALANCE. OTHER PIECE HERE THAT I REALLY WANT TO POINT OUT IS OUR EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM AND THIS IS ONE OF REALLY EXCITES ME BECAUSE- I’VE ALREADY HAD. STAFF MEMBERS COME TO ME. ASKING FOR EDUCATION THERE’S- WHAT WHAT CAN YOU DO AND MY STUDENTS ARE EAGER TO LEARN ABOUT THIS THEY WANT TO KNOW WHAT WE CAN DO. I JUST RECENTLY AT A SHIELD OF MIDDLE SCHOOL. THEY HAVE A PROGRAM. WHERE THEY’RE DOING COMPOSTING BUT NO ONE WILL COME TRAIN THEM HOW TO COMPOST. SO THAT’S PART OF THE THING THAT WE WILL BE GOING TO DO WILL HELP THEM WITH THOSE THINGS WHETHER ITS ENERGY DIRECTLY OR ENVIRONMENTAL WILL BE GLAD. TO HELP IN THOSE THOSE AREAS. THIS BIGGER SCHOOLS VOLUNTEERED ON UPCOMING BREAK. TO DO A- WE’RE AT A SCHOOL LIST CHECK. ON A GIVEN THE CHECKLIST TO TURN OFF THE LIGHTS TO ME EITHER. YOU KNOW ANYTHING THAT CAN BE PUT OFF. TURNED OFF SO THAT SAID. THAT WERE GONE. THIS IS CHRISTIAN IT CAN BE. IN ADDITION TO THAT WELL WE’VE ALREADY MAKE CONTACT WITH DOCTOR BERRY AND THE STEAM PROGRAM AND WE’RE VERY EXCITED AND SHE WAS ACTUALLY VERY EXCITED TO OKAY WANTED CORPORATE WORK WITH US IN THAT PROGRAM. SMALLER PIECES WOULD BE A COUPLE CLUBS ENERGY CLUBS JUST LIKE WE HAVE OTHER CLUBS THAT THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL EVEN ENERGY DETECTIVES FOLKS AGO AND IDENTIFY PROBLEMS IN THE SCHOOL AND POINTED OUT TO THE TEACHERS CAN PUT THEM ON NOTICE. MORE AND MORE INTO WOULD BE STATE CERTIFIED CORRECT. THAT YOU KNOW CAN BE DEVELOPED AND WORKED IN OUR STEAM PROGRAMS WHERE WE ACTUALLY HAVE STUDENTS WHO CAN PUT A CAPSTONE TOGETHER TO CULMINATE THEY’RE THEY’RE LEARNING AND PRESENT A PROJECT WITH EVEN MAYBE THEY WERE NEAR G. MANAGER AND THEY GOT TO DO A FACILITY AUDIT AND CAN WE- CAN DO THE RESEARCH YOU KNOW PRESENT THE RESULTS OF THAT. LESS BE SOMEONE TO TOUCH ON THIS PAGE. THE SUPPORT OF CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS. AS YOU HEARD CASEY SAID THIS PROJECT THIS OF SIXTEEN PERCENT. NO IMPROVEMENT AND THE TEN MILLION DOLLARS OF AVOIDED COSTS THAT SHE TALK ABOUT DID NOT INCLUDE CAP OR PROVE IT. AND I WANNA MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND THIS IS NOT. ADDING CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS WHAT THIS IS AS WE DO THIS DATA COLLECTION AS WE DO ALL THESE THINGS WERE TALKING ABOUT. WE’RE GONNA FIND OPPORTUNITIES. WHERE WE CAN BEST CAN CAPITAL DOLLARS. SO WE MAY FIND A SCHOOL. BECAUSE ITS CONSUMPTION IS SO I WOULD RATHER FOCUS ON THAT SCHOOL THAN ANOTHER SCHOOL IT PLAN. FOLKS FOLKS ON THIS PROGRAM THAT HELPS IDENTIFY. AND REALLY PINPOINT HONE IN ON THOSE. SCHOOLS THAT CAN HELP US MEET REACH OUR GOALS. SO WHAT OUR NEXT STEPS. THE BIGGEST THING HERE IS WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE ON WITH WHAT WE STARTED WE’VE ALREADY GOT SOME SET POINTS THAT WE’VE PUT IN PLACE IT’S BEEN ALMOST A YEAR NOW WHERE THAT’S BEEN IN PLACE WE HAVE SCHEDULING THAT WE’RE DOING OUR OUR BIG THING IS ARE SO MANY BUILDING AUTOMATION NATION SYSTEMS OUT THERE THAT. WE NEED TO HONE THOSE IN AND FINE TUNE WE MIGHT HAVE THE SCHOOL GLOBALLY PROGRAM BUT THERE COULD BE INDIVIDUAL AREAS THAT ARE IN LINE WITH THAT PROGRAM SO THIS IS OUR TIME TO START DOING THAT. WERE ALREADY IDENTIFYING AREA. OR. THINGS THAT WE CAN DO DURING SCHOOL BREAKS WHEN IT’S NOT IMPACTING THE STAFF OR STUDENTS. THINGS OF THAT NATURE SO THIS WHAT WE’RE DOING RIGHT NOW WITH THE PROGRAMMER TO KEEP DOING THAT AND FOCUSING ON THAT. WE’RE GOING TO REVIEW AND UPDATE PROCEDURES SO. I LOGIC WITH THEIR- THE OVERSIGHT AND THEIR GUIDANCE HELPS US DETERMINE WHERE WE CAN. REACH YOU KNOW SAVE SOME MONEY AN AREA THAT WE RECENTLY. NO THEY’VE RECENTLY POINTERS TO IS OUR VENDING MACHINES. OF ANY MACHINES ALMOST ALL ONE TWENTY FOUR HOURS A DAY. THAT’S A LOT OF MONEY WHEN YOU LOOK AT THREE HUNDRED SIXTY FIVE DAYS A YEAR. SOME PRODUCTS OUT THERE THAT IS VERY EXPENSIVE THAT’S ALLOWING US TO. REDUCE HOW LONG THE VENDING MACHINE RUNS ESPECIALLY WHAT NO ONE ELSE IS IN THE BUILDING OR NO WHEN SHOOTING. SO WE’RE HOPING TO INCORPORATE THINGS JUST LIKE HAT. SUMMER TIME KITCHEN EQUIPMENT REFRIGERATORS AND FREEZERS OF REACH THE SMALL ONES NOT THE BIG ONES OBVIOUSLY BUT THE SMALL ONES. WE HAVE OPPORTUNITY TO TURN THOSE OFF FOR IN THE PAST WE MAY HAVE BEEN MISSING THAT. THE LAST PART HERE WE’RE GONNA CONTINUE THIS KID CONSERVATION PROGRAM. UPDATED APPROVAL SO WHAT WHAT THAT MEANS IS WE’RE GONNA DO JUST WE’RE DOING RIGHT NOWWE WANT TO COME TO YOU LET YOU KNOW WHAT’S HAPPENING IT COULD BE LESS PRESENTATION STYLE IT COULD BE ON A WEEKLY OR MONTHLY UPDATE YOU GET. A WRITTEN CORRESPONDENCE EITHER WAY WE WILL BE VERY TRANSPARENT THAT’S WHAT WE’RE DOING WE WANT YOU TO KNOW HOW IT’S GOING. AND THEN WE WANT YOUR INPUT ON WHAT YOU THINK WE SHOULD DO DIFFERENTLY IF WE’RE GOING DOWN THE WRONG ROAD OR IF WE NEED TO CONTINUE DOWN THE PATH WE START. SO WITH THAT SAID WE REALLY WANT TO TAKE A MINUTE TO SAY THANK YOU FOR GIVING US THIS OPPORTUNITY AND DOCTOR BATTLE ON OR TURN IT BACK OVER TO YOU THANKS SO MUCH. DO ANY MY COLLEAGUES HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. I’D LIKE TO MAKE A CONNECTION. I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO CASEY EMBRACE AND ALSO DAVID PROFIT THIS IS AND- A SUBJECT THAT IS NEAR AN DEAR TO MY HEART AND I. MET WITH DAVID PROFIT AND- YOUR YOUR TEAM. RECENTLY TO TALK ABOUT THESE ISSUES SO I’M SO APPRECIATIVE THAT. YOU HAVE BROUGHT THIS TO THE BOARD. IN MY HOUSE WE- WE PURCHASED A THERMOSTAT WHERE WE CAN ADJUSTED. OVER TWENTY FOUR HOUR PERIOD. TO MAKE IT WARMER OR COOLER. A AND THAT HAS SAVED QUITE A BIT OF MONEY IN OUR OWN HOME. AND IN A DISTRICT S. LARGEST AS WE ARE. I SO APPRECIATE SPECIALLY WITH A BUDGET CONSTRAINTS THAT YOU ARE GOING THE EXTRA MILE. TO HELP US SAVE MONEY. THAT THE PROJECTED TO TEN MILLION DOLLARS SAVINGS OVER FIVE YEARS IS SIGNIFICANT AND I THANK YOU ALL FOR THAT. AND YOU KNOW THE IDEA OF COMPOSTING AND TRAINING OUR STUDENTS HAD A COMPOST AND THE ENERGY CLUBS. IT’S VERY EXCITING TO ME I LOVE THE FACT. THAT YOU ARE EVEN THINKING ABOUT VENDING MACHINES AND HOW TO. SAVE MONEY ON. ENERGY CONSUMPTION WITH THE VENDING MACHINE IN YOUR DOING ALL OF THE S. BLOCK KEEPING OUR TEACHERS. AND OUR STUDENTS. COMFORTABLE SO THANK YOU SO MUCH. AND I HAVE A QUESTION. I’VE GOT A QUESTION REVERSAL I ALSO I WANT TO ALSO THANK YOU ALL BECAUSE WE’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS IT’S A CUT ON THE BOARD IN TWO THOUSAND TWELVE AND I’M REALLY EXCITED TO SEE IT FINALLY COME TO FRUITION AND ALSO. I HAVE A CHILD AT AGE A LITTLE SO I. I’VE ALSO. AND YOU ALSO SHOULD REACH OUT TO WEST MAIN ELEMENTARY BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN OKAY GOOD THEY’VE EEN TRYING TO DO THIS SORT OF PROJECT FOR YEARS AND I KNOW THEY WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOUR SUPPORT BUT MY QUESTION IS HOW MANY SCHOOLS IS IMPLEMENTED IN RIGHT NOW ARE WE SCALING UP GOOD QUESTION SO RIGHT NOW WE HAVE FOUR DIFFERENT BUILDING AUTOMATION SYSTEM SIMPLY ICING YOUR TALK ABOUT BUILDING AUTOMATION AND THE SET POINTS IN SCHEDULING SO I DON’T KNOW. THAT FEELING I’VE READ THE MAJORITY OF WHAT WE’VE LOOKED AT SO FAR IN THIS IN THIS BUILDING AUTOMATION AND HOW WE CAN MAINTAIN COMFORT BUT REDUCED HOW HOW LONG OUR SYSTEMS ARE RUNNING IT’S LIKE YOU PUT YOUR CAR IN THE GARGE AT NIGHT YOU’RE RUNNING ON THAT YOU COME BACK IN THE MORNING SO IT’S NICE AND COOL WHEN YOU GET IT. WE WOULD. OUR SCHOOLS ARE ST AND WE DON’T WANT TO BE RUNNING ALL NIGHT JUST SO AT SCHOOL THE NEXT MORNING. IT UP AN HOUR OR TWO BEFORE SCHOOL STARTS. SO IT. AND YOUR QUESTION I DON’T HAVE THE NUMBERS RIGHT OFF HAND. IT’S POSSIBLY 75% OR SCHOOLS HAVE SOME SORT OF BUILDING AUTOMATION. IN PLACE. WE HAVE FOUR DIFFERENT SYSTEMS. SEVERAL OF THEM ARE ANTIQUATED AND ASK CAPITAL DOLLARS COME IN AGAIN NOT ASSOCIATED WITH OUR SAVINGS THAT YOU SAW HERE. BUT THERE ARE EFFORTS TO UPGRADE THEIR SYSTEMS AS THEY COME IN. SO WE HAVE ABOUT 50% OF THE SCHOOLS ON A WHAT WE CALL A HONEYWELL SYSTEM. I WAS A NON PROPRIETARY OF BUILDING AUTOMATION SYSTEM. WHICH ALLOWS US TO. USE SEVERAL VENDORS TO HELP US WITH THAT USING. TO HELP US WITH THAT. INSTALLING AND REPAIRS. WERE OTHER SYSTEMS THAT WE HAVE OUR PROPRIETARY. WERE LOCKED INTO ONE COMPANY. WE HAVE TO USE OUR EQUIPMENT THERE PARKS WHEN THEIR STUFF GETS OUTDATED. WE HAVE NO OTHER. RESOURCE WE HAVE TO USE THEM SO. LONG STORY SHORT ABOUT 75% TOTAL. 25% THAT WE STILL HAVE. ENOUGH YEAH AND ABOUT 50% OF THE NEW PART. SO. SO THE QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS I DO HAVE ONE QUESTION. AND THIS MIGHT BE FOR MISTER PROFIT. I BELIEVE YOU MENTIONED WHEN YOU WERE DOING YOUR RATE ON REPORT OUT. THAT KEEPING AIR MOVING HI I. E. BACK THERE ON THE HEAT ON.
