Seattle City Council Gender Equity, Safe Communities, New Americans & Education Committee 4/18/19


GOOD AFTERNOON. TODAY IS THURSDAY, APRIL 18th. 2019. IT IS 2:03 P.M. THIS IS A SPECIAL MEETING OF THE GENDER EQUITY SAFE COMMUNITIES. EDUCATION COMMITTEE. I’M COUNCIL MORALES AND OUR OTHER COUNCIL MEMBER. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. THERE ARE TEN ITEMS. WE WILL CONSIDER A VOTE ON SIX APPOINTMENTS AND ONE REAPPOINTMENT TO THE COMMISSION. FOLLOWING CONSIDERATION, WE WILL DISCUSS AND LIKELY VOTE ON TWO RESOLUTIONS, ONE IS A PARTNERSHIP WITH SEATTLE SEATTLE SCHOOLS AND ANOTHER ONE WITH THE SEATTLE COLLEGES. LASTLY, WE WILL DISCUSS THE 2018 FAMILIES, EDUCATION, PRESCHOOL AND PROMISE LEVY IMPLEMENTATION AND EVALUATION PLAN FOR THE THIRD AND FINAL TIME CONCLUDING WITH WHAT I HOPE WILL BE A VOTE ON THAT PACKAGE OF AMENDMENTS AND THE FULL IMPLEMENTATION PLAN FOR FINAL CONSIDERATION FOR THE FULL COUNCIL ON MONDAY APRIL 22nd ON MONDAY AT 2:00 P.M. BEFORE WE CONTINUE, WE WILL HOLD OUR REGULAR PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD. I WILL CALL OUT EACH INDIVIDUAL’S NAME IN THE ORDER THEY SIGNED UP. EACH INDIVIDUAL IS ASKED TO BEGIN PUBLIC COMMENT BY REMINDING US OF THEIR NAME AND BY SPEAKING TO AN ITEM ON THE AGENDA FOR TODAY. EACH SPEAKER HAS UP TO TWO MINUTES TO PROVIDE US PUBLIC COMMENT. AFTER THE TWO MINUTES I WILL ASK YOU TO WRAP UP AND YOUR MICROPHONE WILL BE TURNED OFF. WE WILL GO AHEAD AND PROCEED. THE FIRST PERSON SIGNED UP IS MELISSA WESTBROOK AND SANDRA TAYLOR. >>MY NAME IS MELISSA WESBROOK AND I WRITE THE BLOG IN WASHINGTON STATE. I HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE MAYOR’S IMPLEMENTATION PLAN FOR THE FAMILY’S LEVY. ACCORDING TO CHART SCHOOL LAW IF A CHARTER IS NOT PART OF A GROUP IT IS ITS OWN DISTRICT. WHY IS SEATTLE SCHOOLS REQUIRING A SIGNED PARTNERSHIP FOR THE GRADUATES TO HAVE ACCESS TO THE PROMISE FUND BUT CHARTER SCHOOLS DO NOT ON PAGE 10. WHY WAY ABOUT THE HOMELESS STUDENTS AROUND SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS, THAT IS PART OF CHARTER SCHOOL RESPONSIBILITY AS WELL. ALSO I ASSUME THIS PLAN IS RECENT BUT I NOTE ON PAGE 72 IT SAYS SEATTLE SCHOOL SERVES 2000 HOMELESS STUDENTS. IT IS MORE LIKE 3000. NUMBER THREE ON THE PREVIOUS POINT I WANT TO NOTE WHEN YOU ARE MEASURING OUTCOMES IT IS POPE TO REMEMBER THAT CHARTER SCHOOLS CAN LIMIT THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS IN THEIR SCHOOL AND CONTROL WHO COME IN AND EXIT STUDENTS THAT DO NOT WANT TO SERVE THEM. EASIER WITH BETTER OUTCOMES. WHEN YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR STUDENT BODIES. CHARTER SCHOOLS IS NOT DEFINED IN THE GLOSS SARY. WHEN THE CHARTER LAW PASSED IT WAS VOTED DOWN IN SEATTLE BY A WIDE MARGIN. CHARTER LAW DOES NOT REQUIRE YOU TO INCLUDE CHARTER SCHOOLS YOU ARE DOING THIS AS A — THE MAYOR IS DOING THIS AS PURELY POLITICAL MOVE. DURING THE LEVY CAMPAIGN I ASKED IF CHARTERS WOULD HAVE ACCESS TO THE K12 FUNDS AND I WAS TOLD WE ARE WAITING FOR AN OPINION FROM THE CITY ATTORNEY. AFTER IT PASSED I ASKED THE ATTORNEY’S OFFICE AND THEY SAY THERE’S NO LEGAL OPINION. CLEARLY THERE WAS NO LEGAL OPINION TO BE WEIGHED ON. I CALLED EVERYONE’S OFFICE DURING THE CAMPAIGN AND GOT WAFFLING ANSWERS ABOUT YOUR SUPPORT OF CHARTER SCHOOLS. FACE TO FACE BOTH OF YOU TOLD ME YOU DID NOT SUPPORT THEM. IF YOU WAFFLE ON YOUR SUPPORT FOR CHARTER SCHOOLS IN THIS PLAN IT WILL NOT SERVE YOU WELL. CORY BOOKER AND BETTO O’ROURKE WILL FIND THAT OUT IN THEIR PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGNS HOW MUCH CHARTER SCHOOLS ARE NOT PART OF A CONGRESSIONAL JEAN AND IF YOU ASPIRE TO HIGHER OFFICE I SUGGEST YOU CONSIDER THAT. THANK. >>NEXT PERSON IS SANDRA TAYLER FOLLOWED BY DAVID HAYNES. >>MY NAME IS SANDRA TAYLER AND I AM THE SEATTLE PRESCHOOL COORDINATOR OF RESOURCES AND I JUST WANT TO SPEAK QUICKLY TO A FEW POINTS. FIRST IT IS IMPORTANT TO POINT OUT THE UNIQUENESS OF THE FAMILY CHILD CARE MODEL. FC C PROVIDERS CULTIVATE AND MAINTAIN DEEPER RELATIONSHIPS WITH BOTH THE CHILDREN IN THEIR CARE AND THEIR FAMILIES LARGELY DUE TO THE INTIMACY. THIS UNDERSTANDING OF NEED COMBINED WITH THE NIMBLENESS OF A SMALLER PROGRAM IMPACT HOW A PROVIDER CUSTOMIZES HER TEACHING, CARE GIVING AND PARENT INVOLVEMENT. THESE TWO UNIQUE STRENGTHS DEFINITELY CONTRIBUTE TO THE POSITIVE OUTCOMES THAT THE PILOT PARTICIPANTS EXPERIENCED. IT WAS EASY FOR ALL SICK OF THE PROVIDERS IN OUR HUB THESE PAST TWO YEARS TO IDENTIFY DIFFERENCES OF THE PROGRAMS PRIOR TO FPT PILOT COMPARED TO THE PROGRAMS TODAY. FOR SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS TO ALL OF THE PROGRAMS INCLUDE ONE EVIDENCE BASED CURRICULUM TO GUIDE DAILY LEARNING ACTIVITIES. TWO ASSESSMENT TOOLS TO BETTER TRACK CHILDREN’S DEVELOPMENT AND PROGRESS TOWARDS MILESTONES ACCESS TO THIRD PARTY HEALTH SCREENINGS THAT IDENTIFY LEARNING, BARRIERS SUCH AS VISION IMPAIRMENTS OR DEVELOPMENTAL DELAYS THAT NEED MEDICAL INTERVENTION. FOUR, BIANNUAL OBSERVATION VISITS FROM THE U DUB ASSESSMENT TEAM TO TRACK THE OUTCOMES OF THE TOOLS. AND JUST FROM A PERSONAL TESTIMONY OF ONE OF OUR HOMELESS FAMILIES, I THINK THAT’S WHERE ONE OF THE BIGGEST IMPACTS HAVE BEEN. WE HAD A CASE WHERE A YOUNG MOTHER WAS HOMELESS. SHE DID COUCH SURFING. WITH PARENTS FOR A WHILE AND NOW AT A SHELTER. UNFORTUNATELY SHE WAS OUT OF THE CITY OF SEATTLE, BUT WE FOUND OUT WE COULD STILL GET HER IN. SHE WAS ECSTATIC FOR THAT REASON. I JUST WANT TO APPLAUD THIS PROGRAM. A GREAT PROGRAM AND I LOOK FORWARD TO WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN THE COMING YEARS. >>THANK YOU, SANDRA. >>FINAL SPEAKER IS DAVID HAYNES. >>THANK YOU. LET’S REMEMBER THAT SEATTLE LEGALIZED PROPERLY GLOBE MARIJUANA AND STOPPING THE COCAINE AND CRACK LEVY DESTROYING INNOCENCE SO WHAT THIS COMMUNITY COMMISSIONED LET’S KEEP A SOBER MIND IN FACT, THAT EVEN THOUGH THERE IS RAGE AND HATE THAT WE SHOULD NOT PUSH DRUG PUSHERS TO DESTROY PEOPLE LIVES. AND THERE WAS A COURT CASE THROWN OUT LAST FRIDAY AFTER 20 MINUTES OF BASICALLY DENYING AN INNOCENT PERSON’S RIGHTS. THE POLICE HAVE BEEN TAKING PAY OFFS FROM THE BARTENDERS IN OVERTIME PAYMENTS IN BELL TOWN AND THEY ARE LITERALLY LYING ON POLICE REPORTS AND CAUSING INNOCENT PEOPLE TO BE JAILED AND SCREWED WITH FOR 20 MINUTES. HOPEFULLY THERE WILL BE A GREAT SURGE OF ACCOUNTABILITY ON ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT. FOR THE POLICE TO BE KEPT HONEST SO THAT JUSTICE PREVAILS. GOOD LUCK. THANK YOU. >>THAT IS THE LAST PERSON WE HAVE SIGNED UP ON THE SIGN-UP SHEET. IF THERE IS ANYTHING WITH US TODAY THAT DIDN’T GET A CHANCE TO SIGN UP THAT WOULD LIKE TO OFFER PUBLIC TESTIMONY? SEEING NO ONE I WILL CLOSE OUT THE PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD AND WE ARE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND BEGIN THE ITEMS OF BUSINESS ON TODAY’S AGENDA. IF YOU ARE HERE FOR POINT OR REPOINT TO THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION I WILL ASK THAT YOU MAKE YOUR WAY TO THE TABLE AND WHILE THAT IS HAPPENING. I WILL HAVE ROXANNE READ THE JEAN ITEMS ONE THROUGH SEVEN INTO THE RECORD. >>APPOINTMENTS ONE THROUGH SEVEN APPOINTS 1294 THROUGH 1300. POINTS OF NATASHA MOORE MARK MALIGNS AND TAIWAN.

WHY DON’T WE GO AHEAD AND DO A QUICK ROUND OF INTRODUCTIONS, YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME AND I WILL HAND IT TO CODY THAT WILL KICK US OFF AND CODY, AFTER YOU WILL BE GOVERNOR RAFON. >>CODY. >>CHA FANNA WITH MAYOR KURKAN OFFICER MARK MULLINS FROM THE SEATTLE POLICE DEPARTMENT. >>NATASHA MOORE. >>BRANDY GRANT. >>CARISSA. >>GREAT. WHEN YOU SPEAK INTO THE MICROPHONE, YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE IT CLOSE AND THE GREEN LIGHT ON THE STEM HAS TO BE ON IF YOU WANT TO SAY SOMETHING. THEY ARE SENSITIVE WHEN WHEN YOU GET THEM CLOSE. IT IS A HOT MIKE IF THAT GREEN LIGHT IS ON. MY STAFF LIKES TO REMIND ME OF THAT. SO WE WILL GO AHEAD AND GET STARTED. CODY, WHY DON’T YOU GET US GOING? >>AMONG THE 7 APPOINTMENTS, WE HAVE THE TABLE OF FOUR.

JOSEPH, WHY DON’T YOU SHARE WITH US ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE THUS FAR ON THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION. WHERE YOU THINK THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION IS HEADED OR NEEDS TO HELP AND HOW YOU HOPE TO BE ABLE TO FACILITATE THAT THROUGH YOUR REAPPOINTMENT. >>IT IS SUCH AN HONOR TO BE A PART OF THE CPC IN THE PAST YEAR AS PART OF THE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT TEAM. I HAVE SEEN IT WORK BEING LED BY ROXANNEA AT CPC GROW IN SO MANY WAYS AND GROW IN ACCOUNTABILITY WITH OUR PARTNERS IN WAYS THAT IS NOT ALWAYS REACTIVE BUT HOW DO WE CONTINUE TO STRENGTH AN THOSE TIES WITH COMMUNITY NONPROFITS AND WITH THE OTHER SYSTEMS úPARTNERS. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO SERVING AGAIN FOR ANOTHER YEAR. >>EXCELLENT. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR JOSEPH? >>THANK YOU SO MUCH. WE HAVE HAD A CHANCE TO VISIT THE SERVICES DURING A COMMUNITY TOUR. EXCITED ABOUT THE WORK YOU DO. CAN YOU TALK ABOUT I’M PROBABLY GOING TO ASK EVERYBODY. WHAT DO YOU SEE IN TERMS OF ACCOUNTABILITY? WHO DO YOU SEE YOURSELF BEING ACCOUNTABLE TO AND WHAT DOES THAT MEAN AND LOOK LIKE NOW. >>GREAT QUESTION. I USED TO WORK THERE AT THE SERVICES BUT I AM NOW AT NEW HORIZONS. I CURRENTLY CHAIR AND COLLABORATIVE WITH 16 YOUTH HOMELESS ORGANIZATIONS. ONE OF THE BIGGEST CONCERNS IS INTERACTIONS THAT WE HAVE WITH POLICE AND SHELTER SERVICES AND EMERGENCY SERVICES WITH THEIR YOUNG PEOPLE. OUR YOUNG PEOPLE ARE OFTEN THE MOST INSTITUTIONIZED AND PICKED UP AND VERY MUCH INVOLVED. WITH OUR WORK WE WANT TO BRING THE CHALLENGES THAT HAPPENS RIGHT THERE AT THE FRONT LINES OF WHERE THE YOUTH HOMELESSNESS MEET THE POLICING WORLD. WHAT IS IT THAT WE CAN OFFER THAT CAN IMPROVE AND HOW CAN WE INSTITUTIONALIZE SOME OF THOSE IMPROVEMENTS. PART IS HOW TO INCREASE TRAUMA INFORMED CARE AND THE POINTS THAT YOUNG PEOPLE ARE INTERSECTING WITH. A LOT OF CITY DOLLARS GOING TO POLICE AND CITY DOLLARS GOING TO THE AGENCIES AND THERE ARE PING POINTS IN WHERE THE CITY DOLLARS MEET, RIGHT? SO HOW DO WE ON THE GROUND GIVE THAT INSIGHT BACK TO THE SYSTEMS SO THEY ARE ABLE TO SERVE OUR YOUNG PEOPLE, MOSTLY YOUNG PEOPLE OF COLOR AND MOSTLY YOUNG LGTBQ AND INDIGENOUS YOUNG PEOPLE THAT ARE SUFFERING RIGHT NOW. >>THANK YOU. >>ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? OKAY. I’M GOING TO KIND OF TAKE THESE IN REVERSE ORDER SINCE REAPPOINTMENT AND MOVE FOR YOUR REAPPOINTMENT FIRST. I WILL MOVE FOR THE APPROVAL OF THE REAPPOINTMENT OF JOSEPH SAY AS POLICE COMMISSION FOR A TERM OF DECEMBER 31st, 2021. 0130 APPOINTMENT. >>SECOND. >>ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS? ALL THOSE SAY AYE. NOBODY ELSE TO OPPOSE. THE AYES HAVE IT AND YOUR REAPPOINTMENT CONSIDERED ON MONDAY, APRIL 22nd AT OUR FULL COUNCIL MEETING AT 2:00 P.M. YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME TO JOIN US BUT NOT REQUIRED TO. DO I HAVE TO MOVE TO SUSPEND THE RULES? 29TH. APRIL 29TH. I GOT THE DATE WRONG. FOLKS OVER HERE KEEP ME HONEST. APRIL 29th. ALL RIGHT. SO LET’S MOVE ON TO OFFICER MULLINS. WE ALREADY HEARD A LITTLE BIT OF INTRODUCTION. FOR OFFICER MULLINS. I JUST WANTED TO GIVE YOU A CHANCE TO SHARE WITH US WHY YOU ARE INTERESTED IN SERVING IN THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION AND WHAT YOU HOPE TO BE ABLE TO BRING TO THE CONVERSATION. >>WELL, IT’S VERY SIMPLE. I HAVE ALWAYS BELIEVED THAT THE POLICE AND THE COMMUNITY SHOULD BE ONE. SEAMLESS. WHEN I WORKED IN COMMUNITY POLICING I LEARNED THAT EVEN MORE. I CAME OUT OF PATROL AND WORKED WITH THE COMMUNITY POLICE TEAM AND I WORKED BEACON HILL. I WAS THE BEACON HILL OFFICER. WHAT I ATTEMPTED TO DO WAS EMPOWER PEOPLE TO BASICALLY POLICE THEMSELVES IN THAT THEY WERE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH A LOT OF THINGS IN THE AREA. MAINLY SOME PROBLEMS WITH HOMELESSNESS, SOME PROBLEMS WITH PEOPLE IN THE GREEN BELT THAT WERE CAUSING THE PROBLEMS AND A FEW APARTMENT COMPLEXES THAT HAPPENED TO BE A LITTLE BIT OUT OF CONTROL. SO BASICALLY I SAID THIS IS YOUR HOUSE. THIS IS YOUR COMMUNITY. THIS IS YOUR AREA. WHERE WE ARE GOING TO TAKE CONTROL OF. NOT I. I’M NOT GOING TO — I CAN’T BE THERE ALL THE TIME. I CAN’T SEE ALL OF THE THINGS THAT YOU SEE SO YOU HAVE GOT TO HELP ME. BASICALLY IN THAT I WAS ABLE TO FORM A UNION IN WHICH WE COULD WORK WITH THE LANDLORDS IN THE AREA. WORK ON PROGRAMS TO HELP THE PEOPLE IN THE GREEN BELT SO THAT WE COULD CALM DOWN SOME OF THE EFFECTS OF SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WERE GOING ON IN THE AREA. AND IT WORKED PRETTY WELL. I HAVE LEARNED EARLY IN MY CAREER THAT THE POLICE CAN’T DO THEIR JOB WITHOUT THE COMMUNITY. AND I HAVE ALSO LEARNED THAT THE COMMUNITY NEEDS TO BE INFORMED ABOUT THE THINGS THAT POLICE DO. SOME TACTICS THAT WE USE, THE COMMUNITY DOESN’T UNDERSTAND SOMETIMES WHAT HAPPENS. SOMETIMES POLICE WILL COME AND TAKE SOMEONE AWAY AND PEOPLE WILL BE STANDING THERE GOING WHAT JUST HAPPENED? WHY DID THEY JUST YANK THAT GUY OFF OF THE STREET. THERE HAS TO BE SOMEONE THAT LINGERS BEHIND TO SAY IS THERE ANY QUESTIONS YOU GUYS MIGHT HAVE ABOUT WHAT JUST HAPPENED? BECAUSE SOMETIMES WE DON’T HAVE TIME TO EXPLAIN. THAT’S ONLY ONE ASPECT OF THE REASON I WANT TO BE IN THIS COMMISSION. I WANT TO HELP TO BRIDGE THAT GAP OF UNDERSTANDING. IF YOU JUST TALK TO PEOPLE ABOUT WHAT WE DO. SOMETIMES THAT CLEARS UP A LOT OF THINGS. THAT CLEARS UP A LOT OF SITUATIONS THAT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE A PROBLEM BETWEEN POLICE AND THE COMMUNITY. WE GOT SOME WORK TO DO. WE UNDERSTAND THAT. AND I’M GOING TO HELP WITH THAT. BUT UNDERSTANDING AND BEING ABLE TO EXPLAIN SOME OF THE THINGS WE DO AND THE TACTICS THAT WE USE MIGHT HELP BRIDGE THAT GAP BETWEEN POLICE AND THE COMMUNITY. SO I AM EXCITED. >>GREAT. IN THE INVERSE. HOW DO YOU THINK YOU WILL BE BRINGING INFORMATION FROM THE NONSWORN MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION BACK TO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT TO SHARE WHAT YOU ARE HEARING FROM, DIRECTLY FROM THE COMMUNITY? HOW DO YOU THINK THE BRIDGE GETS BUILT IN THE OTHER DIRECTION? >>I AM IN S P AG. I’M A SHOP STEWARD IN SPAG AND I ATTEND A LOT OF MEETINGS SO I WOULD BE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH A LOT OF MY FELLOW OFFICERS. IN SOUTH PRECINCT I HAVE VARIOUS WAYS AND MEETINGS WHERE I MEET WITH A LOT OF MY OFFICERS TO BE ABLE TO GET INFORMATION OUT TO THEM. I BELIEVE I CAN START THAT WAY. >>GREAT, THANK YOU COUNCIL, ANY QUESTIONS. >>THANK YOU FOR THE WORK THAT YOU HAVE DONE. I NOTE THAT NOMINATION CAME FROM REVEREND HARRIET WALDEN AND I WANTED TO TALK ABOUT POLICE ACCOUNTABILITY AND THE ONGOING EFFORTS AROUND THESE COLLABORATIONS AND HOW YOU SEE THAT IN YOUR WORK. >>I KNOW REVEREND HARRIS FROM VARIOUS COMMUNITY MEETINGS THAT I HAVE BEEN TO OVER THE MANY YEARS. BUT I HAVEN’T REALLY WORKED WITH HER ORGANIZATION. I HAVE BEEN VERY AWARE OF THEM. VERY AWARE OF HER ORGANIZATION AND HER PRESENCE. MAYBE SOMETIMES WE DON’T SEE EYE TO EYE BUT I LOVE HER DEARLY AND I ALWAYS THOUGHT SHE WAS A GREAT PART OF THE COMMUNITY. >>ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? >>OKAY. THERE BEING NO FURTHER QUESTIONS, I WILL GO AHEAD AND MOVE FOR THIS APPOINTMENT AS WELL WHICH IS APPOINTMENT THAT IS BEING ADVANCED BY THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION 01298. I WILL MOVE APPOINTMENT 01298 THE APPOINTMENT OF MARK MULLINS FOR THE POLICE COMMISSION FOR A TERM OF DECEMBER 31st, 2019. >>NONE OPPOSED. THE AYES HAVE IT AND THIS WILL BE CONSIDERED AT FULL COUNCIL MONDAY APRIL 29th. 2019 AT 2:00 P.M. YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO ATTEND. BUT YOU ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND IF YOU WISH TO DO SO. OKAY. >>THANK YOU. >>ALL RIGHTY SO MOVING RIGHT ALONG. LET’S MOVE OVER TO THE MAYOR OFFICE NOMINATION FOR COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION SO WE HAVE HER A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ESTER BUT MAYBE ESTER YOU CAN TALK ABOUT YOUR INTEREST IN SERVING ON THE POLICE COMMISSION AND WHAT YOU HOPE TO BE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH. >>SURE. FIRST LET ME SAY IT IS INCREDIBLE PRIVILEGE TO HAVE MAYOR DURKAN’S CONFIDENCE AND TO SIT WITH TWO WOMEN THAT I RESPECT SO MUCH. THANKS FOR HAVING ME. AS WE BEGIN TO THINK ABOUT POLICE REFORM AND MAYBE THINKING ABOUT MORE COMMUNITY POLICE MODELS THAT HEALTHCARE IS GOING TO BE A TREMENDOUS VALUE WHEN WE HAVE THESE DISCUSSIONS AND REALLY THINKING ABOUT HOW WE CAN ADDRESS THE NEEDS OF OUR COMMUNITY HOLISTICALLY WITH THE POLICE DEPARTMENT BEING ONE COMPONENT. WE OPERATE A 65 BED RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT PROGRAM AND WE RUN AN EPIDEMIOLOGY CENTER. WE CAN REALLY SUPPORT THE NEEDS AROUND ADDICTION AND ADDRESSING THOSE CHALLENGES AND THINKING ABOUT MORE COMMUNITY GUIDED DATA COLLECTION AND EVALUATION EFFORTS THAT CAN BE BENEFICIAL. I THINK THAT INTEGRATED MODEL THAT WE HAVE DEVELOPED AT THE SEATTLE BOARD IS CALLED IN DIG JANOS CARE. WE NEED TO BUILD UPON THAT TO CREATE CHANGE. >>ANY QUESTIONS? >>I WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU THE FIRST QUESTION THAT I STARTED WITH. WHAT DOES ACCOUNTABILITY LOOK LIKE TO YOU AND HOW DO YOU DEFINE THAT? WHAT DOES THE MEAN FOR YOU? WHO ARE YOU ACCOUNTABLE TO. >>THE ANCESTORS OF THIS LAND AND AS A WOMAN OUR LINEAGE IS CARRIED THROUGH OUR MOMS AND GRANDMOTHERS AND AS CEO FOR A QUALIFIED HEALTH CENTER WE SERVE ALL PEOPLE AND THAT MEANS WE SERVE ALL PEOPLE IN A NATIVE WAY. OUR PATIENT POPULATION STAYS BETWEEN 65 AND 70% AMERICAN NATIVES AND ALASKANS AN INCREASES IN THE AFRICAN- AMERICAN FOLKS SERVING AND VERY PROUD OF THAT. I THINK ALL OF THAT IS CHANGING AND TRANSFORMING BECAUSE OF THE TRUSS THAT WE HAVE INVESTED IN BUILDING IN THE LAST, I HAVE BEEN HERE FOUR YEARS NOW. I HAVE A UNIQUE POSITION WHERE I HAVE COMMUNITY DISCUSSIONS AND EVERYONE IS WELCOME AND THE INTENT IS TO BRING THE INFORMATION OUT TO THE COMMUNITY AND LISTEN TO THEM AND BRING THEIR VOICES BACK. SO THAT IS WHAT ACCOUNTABILITY MEANS TO ME. >>THANK YOU. THAT’S WONDERFUL. I APPRECIATE ALL OF THE WORK THAT YOU HAVE BEEN DOING IN OUR BROADER COLLECTIVE COMMUNITY. I DON’T MEAN TO RESTRICT THAT JUST TO CITY LIMITS BUT I THINK THIS PERSPECTIVE AROUND THE INTERSECTION OF PEOPLE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS AND FOLKS WHO STRUGGLE EVERY DAY WITH SUBSTANCE USE DISORDERS IS A REALLY CRITICAL ISSUE FOR THE CITY RIGHT NOW. I THINK THAT COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN MAKING SURE THAT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND THAT OUR ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEMS ARE ACKNOWLEDGING THAT INTERSECTION SQUARE ON. I THINK THERE IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE SURE WE ARE INFLUENCING THOSE FOR SAFETY SERVICES AND THE NEED FOR PUBLIC SAFETY SERVICES THAT AREN’T GOING TO FURTHER TRAUMAIZE COMMUNITIES THAT ARE EXPERIENCING TRAUMA. REALLY VALUE YOUR PERSPECTIVE AND EXPERTISE IN GUIDES THOSE CONVERSATIONS IN THE CITY AS A WHOLE SO THANKS FOR YOUR WILLINGNESS TO SERVE. >>THANK YOU. >>I THINK THAT’S IT. NO MORE QUESTIONS. WE WILL MOVE THIS APPOINTMENT AS WELL. SO I WILL MOVE APPOINTMENT 01295 THE APPOINTMENT OF ESTER LOOSER AS POLICE COMMISSION TO A TERM OF DECEMBER 31st, 2021. >>SECOND. >>ALL THOSE IN FAVOR AYE. >>AYE. >>ANY OPPOSED. THE AYES HAVE IT AND THIS APPOINTMENT WILL BE CONSIDERED BY FULL COUNCIL ON MONDAYAL 29th AT 2:00 P.M. SAME SPIEL. YOU ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND BUT NOT REQUIRED TO ATTEND THE FULL COUNCIL MEETING. ALL RIGHT. LET’S MOVE TO CONSIDERATION OF THE NOMINATIONS FROM MY OFFICE AND FROM THE CITY COUNCIL AS A WHOLE. REALLY EXCITED ABOUT EACH OF THESE CANDIDATES. AS IT RELATES TO NATASHA AND CARISSA. I PROMISED WE CHECKED WITH SHAWN GOOD, THEIR BOSS ABOUT TAKING TWO PEOPLE FROM CHOOSE 180 TO SERVE IN THIS CAPACITY AND REALLY EXCITED THAT SEAN IS VERY SUPPORTIVE OF BOTH OF YOU PARTICIPATING BECAUSE THAT IS IMPORTANT PERSPECTIVE. WHY DON’T WE GO AHEAD AND START WITH NATASHA. YOU CAN JUST TALK TO US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR WORK AND HOW AND WHY YOU ARE INTERESTED IN SERVING ON THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION AND WHAT YOU HOPE TO BE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH AND I’M SURE COUNCIL MEMBERS MAY HAVE QUESTIONS. I WILL SAY FOR THE AUDIENCE AND COUNCIL MACATTA. I SPENT TIME WITH EACH ONE OF THE FOUR NOMINEES THAT WE HAVE PUT FORWARD AND WANT TO THANK THEM ALL FOR COMING INTO MY OFFICE ON A SATURDAY. THAT WAS THE ONLY TIME THAT I COULD FIND TO DO THIS AND APPRECIATE YOUR THOUGHTFULNESS ABOUT WHAT YOU HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH AND YOUR OWN EXPERIENCES AND HOW THEY WILL SHOW UP IN THIS ROLE. APPRECIATE THAT. NATASHA. >>THANK YOU. >>HI. >>I GREW UP IN SEATS, THE RAYNAR VALLEY COMMUNITY AND I HAVE SEEN WHAT GOOD POLICING LOOKS LIKE AND WHAT BAD POLICING LOOKS LIKE AND WHEN I WAS DOING GANG INTERVENTION WORK WITH THE YOUTH IT WASN’T UNTIL THEN THAT I REALIZED THAT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE POLICE AND THE COMMUNITY WAS BROKEN. AND I DID THAT FOR FIVE YEARS AND NOW I’M AT AN ORGANIZATION CALLED CHOOSE 180 AND WE OFFER PROGRAMS TO KEEP YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULTS OUT OF THE JUSTICE SYSTEM AND KEEP THEM IN SCHOOL. SO THROUGH THE EXPERIENCE WITH THAT AND WORKING WITH PEOPLE OF POWER WITHIN THE SYSTEM AND ALSO WORKING WITH FAMILIES AND YOUTH IN THE COMMUNITY. I FEEL THAT THE EXPERIENCE I HAVE WILL BE AN ASSET TO THE COMMISSION. >>AND IS THERE ANYTHING IN PARTICULAR YOU HOPE TO BE ABLE TO WORK ON AS PART OF THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION? >>WELL, I THINK THE FIRST THING IS YOU KNOW KIND OF MENDING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE COMMUNITY AND THE POLICE BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE THERE ARE SOME VERY POWERFUL PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY THAT YOU KNOW WANT TO ACT ON CERTAIN THINGS BUT THEY DON’T KNOW HOW TO REALLY GO ABOUT IT. AND YOU KNOW THEY ARE KIND OF SCARED BECAUSE OF THE THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED IN THE PAST. AND THEN JUST HOLDING THE POLICE ACCOUNTABLE FOR HOW THEY DEAL WITH OUR PEOPLE. >>GREAT. COUNCIL MASKITTA. ANY QUESTIONS? >>NO. >>YOUR MIKE IS OFF. >>SORRY. I HAD TO SNEEZE. YOU KNOW, WITH ALL OF YOUR WORK WITH THE YOUTH IN THE PAST, YOU HAVE ANY OTHER COMMENTS ABOUT ACCOUNTABILITY AND WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE OUR COMMUNITY AT LARGE THAT WE WANT TO BE ACCOUNTABLE TO AND BEING ACCOUNTABLE TO THE YOUTH IS SOMETHING THAT I THINK WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO LIFT UP. IS THAT PART OF WHO YOU DETERMINE YOU ARE ACCOUNTABLE TO? >>YEAH. DEFINITELY. AND I THINK THAT IT IS NOT JUST THE POLICE BUT THE PEOPLE IN COMMUNITY NEED TO KNOW THAT THEY HAVE A VOICE AS WELL AND SOME PEOPLE NEED TO STEP UP BECAUSE THE COMMISSION IS GREAT BUT IT WILL TAKE A LARGER GROUP OF PEOPLE TO COMING UP WITH SOLUTIONS THAT WILL POSITIVELY AFFECT THE SYSTEMS. >>GREAT. >>ANY FOLLOW-UP? >>EXCELLENT. OKAY. THANK YOU SO MUCH NATASHA. I APPRECIATE YOUR PERSPECTIVE WORKING WITH YOUTH POPULATIONS AND I THINK IT IS AN IMPORTANT VOICE THAT THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION HAS EXPRESSED TO US THEY ARE REALLY INTERESTED IN HEARING MORE FROM THAT VOICE AND HAVE HUGE RESPECT FOR THE WORK THAT YOU HAVE DONE AND THE HUGE RESPECT FOR THE WORK THAT CHOOSE 180 DOES. I AM EXCITED TO HAVE YOU JOIN THE C P C AS WELL. THANK YOU FOR ACCEPTING THE NOMINATION AND BEING WILLING TO SERVE. >>THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME. >>OKAY. SO NEXT UP, WE WILL HEAR FROM BRANDY. YOU WANT TO INTRODUCE YOURSELF IN YOUR OWN WORDS AND LET US KNOW WHY YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION AND WHAT YOU MIGHT WANT TO FOCUS ON? >>ABSOLUTELY. SO MY NAME IS BRANDY GRANT. I WORK FOR THE RELIANCE RESPONSIBILITY FOUNDATION. I AM ORIGINALLY FROM THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA. A SOUTHWEST GIRL. THE REASON I WANTED TO APPLY FOR THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION IS TWO REASONS. PARTIALLY IT IS PERSONAL BUT MAINLY PROFESSIONAL AS WELL. I’M RAISING A WONDERFUL SON, 13 YEARS OLD AND THE WAY THAT HE PRESENTS TO THE WORLD I HAVE TO USE THE PLATFORM THAT I HAVE AND THE RESOURCES TO MAKE SURE THAT HE IS ABLE TO NAVIGATE THROUGH THIS WORLD SAFELY AND KNOW THAT HE IS THE KING THAT HE IS AND BE ABLE TO USE HIS VOICE SO I HAVE TO BE ABLE TO MODEL THAT FOR HIM. >>HOW TALL IS YOUR SON? >>6’4″, 13 YEARS OLD. >>13. >>YES. BUT MOTHERS, PARENTS WHEN YOU LOOK AT HIM, YOU CAN TELL HE IS A BABY. THE PROFESSIONAL SIDE I HAVE WORKED IN MENTAL HEALTH AND COMMUNITY FOR OVER 13 YEARS AND WHERE I COME FROM, COMMUNITY IS FAMILY, RIGHT? THEY ARE AUNTIES AND UNCLES AND COUSINS IN THE METAPHOR SENSE AND I HOPE TO BRING THAT TO THE POLICE COMMISSION TO BRIDGE THAT GAP BETWEEN THE COMMUNITY COMMUNITY STAKE HOLDERS AND THE REAL UNSONG HEROES LIKE REVEREND WALDEN, PEOPLE THAT HAVE MODELED THEMSELVES AFTER HER. JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE HAVING A SEAT AT THE TABLE. I HAVE BEEN IN GREAT COMPANY SINCE I HAVE BEEN HERE FIVE YEARS AGO. I HAVE BEEN IN THE LIKES OF ORGANIZATIONS LIKE CHOOSE 180. COMMUNITY PASSAGEWAYS AND OBVIOUSLY MY ORGANIZATION WHO HAS MADE A CONCENTRATED EFFORT TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE SHOWING UP FOR IMPACTED COMMUNITIES IN A WAY THAT THEY MAY NOT HAVE IN THE PAST. SO COLLECTIVELY WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DO THAT AND SO WHEN WE ARE PUTTING TOGETHER INITIATIVES AND POLICIES AND BILLS AND AGENDA. WE WANT THE PEOPLE REPRESENTED IN THE LANGUAGE WHEN WE ARE PASSING THE BILLS AND LAWS. THAT’S WHY I AM HERE. I WANT TO BE A PART OF WHAT MAKES THE MOST SENSE TO KEEP OUR FAMILY SAFE. RIGHT? BECAUSE COMMUNITY IS FAMILY. >>THANK YOU, BRANDY AND ONE IS IMPRESSIVE ABOUT THE WORK THAT YOU HAVE BEEN DOING IS AROUND GUN SAFETY AND ADDRESSING GUN BASED VIOLENCE IN OUR COMMUNITIES AND WE UNFORTUNATELY KNOW THE STATISTICS IT IS COMMUNITIES OF COLOR AND LOW INCOME THAT ARE MOST NEGATIVELY IMPACTED BY GUN VIOLENCE AND HAVING THAT STRONG SET OF EXPERIENCE AROUND WHAT IT MEANS TO COLLABORATE WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT, WITH COMMUNITY, WITH PUBLIC HEALTH ADVOCATES AND EXPERTS TO REALLY TAKE CARE OF OUR COMMUNITY IN THAT WAY IS I THINK A REALLY IMPORTANT PERSPECTIVE TO BRING TO THE COMMUNITY. POLICE COMMISSION AND HOPE TO BE ABLE TO HEAR MORE FROM YOU THROUGH THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION ON HOW WE CAN REALLY CENTER THAT IMPORTANCE OF PUBLIC SAFETY THAT IS SAFE AND FEELS COMFORTABLE FOR ALL COMMUNITIES AS PART OF HOW WE DO POLICING HERE IN THE CITY. >>ABSOLUTELY. THANK YOU FOR THE HONOR. >>THANK YOU. COUNCIL ANY QUESTIONS? >>VERY IMPRESSIVE SLATE OVER HERE. NOT THAT THE OTHER ONES AREN’T IMPRESSIVE. SO WE WILL MOVE ALONG TO THE NEXT NOMINEE. WE WILL GO AHEAD AND HEAR FROM CARISSA. >>HI. HARD ACTS TO FOLLOW. >>SERIOUSLY. >>SO THE SAME QUESTION I’M ASSUMING. >>YES. TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOU KNOW WHY YOU WANT TO SERVE ON THE CPC AND IF THERE’S ANYTHING IN PARTICULAR THAT YOU WOULD REALLY BE EXCITED TO FOCUS ON. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR THAT AS WELL. >>GREAT. THANK YOU. I’M CARISSA. I AM FOR THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN HIGHLY IMPACTED BY POLICING AND THE CRIMINAL LEGAL SYSTEM AT LARGE. STARTING WITH FOSTER YOUTH AND WORKING WITH YOUNG ADULTS EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS AND WORKING WITH YOUTH WHO HAD GANG AFFILIATIONS AND WORKING WITH YOUTH THAT ARE FACING THEIR FIRST FELONY CHARGE. AND I THINK THAT LARGELY WHY INITIALLY WANTED TO JOIN THIS COMMISSION WAS TO BRING AND AMPLIFY THEIR VOICES. I AM CONSTANTLY ASKING THE YOUNG PEOPLE THAT I WORK WITH, WHAT JUSTICE LOOKS LIKE AND WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO HOLD THEM ADJUSTABLE AND STILL FELT JUST AND WHAT KIND OF SYSTEM WOULD THEY IMAGINE WITHOUT ONE THAT WE HAVE. I HEAR SO MANY REMARKABLE ANSWERS AND WISDOM THAT I WOULD LOVE TO BRING THAT FORWARD. IN TERMS OF SPECIFICALLY TO WORK ON WOULD BE TO TAKE THE NONFORMAL WAY OF ME ASKING THEM WHEN THEY ARE SITTING IN MY CAR AND MAKING THAT MORE FORMAL AND SITTING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE THAT ARE IMPACTED BY THE JUSTICE SYSTEM AND POWER THEM AND AMPLIFY THEIR VOICES BECAUSE ONE I THINK THE VOICES NEED TO BE HEARD AND THEY HAVE THAT WISDOM AND ALSO BECAUSE I THINK THAT WOULD INCREASE CITY OFIC ENGAGEMENT FOR COMMUNITIES OFTEN UNDER REPRESENTED AND TO BE HAVING THEM FEEL EMPOWERED IN THAT PROCESS. >>GREAT. THANK YOU. COUNCIL MAKITTA, ANY QUESTIONS OR FOLLOW UP? >>YOU KNOW, YOU GUYS ARE ALL SO IMPRESSIVE. I’M EXCITED. ONE OF THE QUESTIONS I HAD TO ASK WAS AROUND INTER SECTIONITY SO I DON’T HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. >>THIS IS A GOOD SIGN FOR YOU ALL. >>LAST BUT NOT LEAST IS HELENA. YOU WANT TO SHARE US FROM YOUR PERSPECTIVE AND WHY YOU WANT TO BE ON THE CPC AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING YOU ARE PARTICULARLY EXCITED ABOUT WORKING ON? >>THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME. MY NAME IS HELENA SANTIEN. I AM A PROUD PERSON OF COLOR THAT IS A MAJOR REASON OF WHY I DECIDED TO JOIN THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION. I AM FOCUSED ON HOW WE ARE CENTERING AND ELEVATING THE VOICES OF COMMUNITY THAT HAVE HISTORICALLY HAVE BEEN LEFT OUT OF PLACES LIKE THIS AND MAKING SURE THAT COMMUNITIES THAT HAVE GENERATIONAL AND HISTORIC TRAUMA PERPETUATED BY VIOLENCE THAT THOSE VOICES ARE ELEVATED. ANOTHER PIECE OF THAT I’M THE DIRECTOR OF RACIAL EQUITY FOR COALITIONS ON SEATTLE CAMPUSES ROOTED IN ARTS. THEATER AND MUSIC. DANCE. HOW ARE WE USING THOSE AS FORMS OF SOCIAL JUSTICE. AND ONE OF THE THINGS IN THAT WORK IS HOW ARE WE HOLDING — HOW ARE WE MAKING SURE THAT BOTH SIDES ARE HEARD? I BELIEVE THAT WE NEED TO PROVIDE PEOPLE OPPORTUNITIES TO BE BETTER AT THEIR JOBS AND THANK YOU OFFICER MULLINS FOR BEING HERE. I THINK IT IS A BRAVE SPACE TO BE IN ESPECIALLY WITH THE CURRENT POLITICAL CLIMATE. I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT ACKNOWLEDGING THE POWER DYNAMIC THAT EXISTS IN COMMUNITY MOST IMPACTED BY STATE VIOLENCE ARE HEARD AND ELEVATED AND ACKNOWLEDGING THAT AND MAKING SURE THAT POLICE OFFICERS THAT HAVE FAMILIES AND CARRYING GENERATIONAL TRAUMA IN THEIR BODIES THAT THEY ALSO FEEL HEARD. I THINK PEOPLE WANT TO BE LISTENED TO AND CREATED SPACE FOR AND I THINK THAT’S AN IMPORTANT PART IN HEALING AND BRIDGING COMMUNITY. >>THANK YOU. >>ANY FOLLOW-UP FOR HELENA? >>SO. ONE OF THE THINGS I WAS EXCITED ABOUT IN YOUR SUMMARY WAS THE WORK THAT YOU HAVE DONE WITH THE BLACK PRISONERS CAUCUS. CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ANY TAKE AWAYS FROM THAT EXPERIENCE AND HOW THAT MIGHT INFORM THE WORK THAT YOU ARE LIFTING UP ON THE CPC? >>YES, WHAT IS INTERESTING IS THAT I HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH FOLKS WHO HAVE ALREADY HAD INTERACTIONS WITH THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. AND ACKNOWLEDGING HOW SLAVERY IN THIS COUNTRY HAS TURNED INTO MASS INCARCERATION AND IMPACTED THE BLACK COMMUNITY AND COMMUNITY OF COLOR LOOKING AT THE POPULATION OF BLACK AND LATINO WOMEN THAT ARE MOTHERS IN PRISON. I DIDN’T HAVE A PERSONAL CONNECTION TO THAT AND KNOWING SOMEONE THAT WAS INCARCERATED UNTIL SOMEONE PROVIDED ME THAT OPPORTUNITY AND HONESTLY THE HONOR TO GO AND MEET WITH FOLKS THAT ARE EXPERIENCING INCARCERATION AND I LEARNED SO MUCH FROM THAT EXPERIENCE. PART OF THE WORK AND HOW THAT INTERSECTS WITH THE WORK THAT I AM DOING IN BLACK PRISONERS CAUCUS, HOW ARE WE USING ART AS FORM OF SOCIAL JUSTICE TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUNG PEOPLE DON’T END UP IN PLACES LIKE THAT. ADDRESSING SYSTEMIC ISSUES AS WELL. AND NOT A BAND-AID ISSUE OR A BAND-AID FIX THAT WE ARE PUTTING ON ISSUES BUT REALLY CENTERING AND UPLIFTING A POPULATION THAT PEOPLE FORGET ABOUT. UNLESS YOU HAVE A DIRECT EXPERIENCE WITH SOMEONE THAT IS INCARCERATED OR YOU HAVE BEEN INCARCERATED WITH YOURSELF. WE ARE NOT HAVING THAT CONVERSATION WITH THE COMMUNITIES. IT IS A PRIVILEGE TO BE ON THE OUTSIDE AND I CARRY THAT RESPONSIBILITY AND THAT WEIGHT AND I AM ALSO LOOKING FORWARD TO BRINGING THOSE VOICES TO THE TABLE TOO. >>THANK YOU. >>GREAT. AND HELENA, I THINK YOU REALLY BRING A STRONG PERSPECTIVE AND SET OF EXPERIENCES AROUND RESTORATIVE JUSTICE IN GENERAL AND THAT’S AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE WORK THAT THE CITY DOES AS A WHOLE BUT THAT I KNOW IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO COMMUNITIES WHO ARE DEALING WITH TRAUMA AND NEGATIVE EXPERIENCES AND RESTORATIVE JUSTICE IS GOOD FOR THE ENTIRE ECO SYSTEM. FOLKS LIKE OFFICER MULLINS WHO WE REALLY RESPECT AND APPRECIATE PROVIDING CRITICAL PUBLIC SAFETY SERVICES TO MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY AND PEOPLE THAT FEEL LIKE SOMETIMES IT DOESN’T ALWAYS HAPPEN THE WAY THEY LIKE TO HAPPEN. SO I THINK THE CONCEPTS ARE SUPER IMPORTANT AND APPRECIATE YOUR WILLINGNESS TO BRING THAT EXPERTISE TO THE POLICE COMMISSION AND LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING HOW YOU ADVANCE THAT CONVERSATION. THANK YOU FOR YOUR WILLINGNESS TO SERVE AS WELL. >>THANK YOU. >>ALL RIGHT. SO WE WILL MOVE THIS APPOINTMENT, ALL OF THE FOUR APPOINTMENTS SO WE WILL DO — I WILL MOVE 01294, 01296, 01297 AND 01299 AND THE APPOINTMENTS OF BRANDY GRANT, NATASHA MOORE, CARISSA MORACOWA AND HELENA SANITY AG AS MEMBERS OF THE POLICE COMMISSION TO A TERM OF DECEMBER 31st, 2019 AND IN SOME INSTANCES, DECEMBER 31st, 2021. ú>>SECOND. >>ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? >>ENTHUSIASTIC SECOND. >>ALL SAY AYE. >>AYE. >>ALL THOSE OPPOSED. THE AYES HAVE IT. THESE CONFIRMATIONS CONSIDERED AT FULL COUNCIL MONDAY APRIL 29TH. HERE IN COUNCIL CHAMBERS. NOT REQUIRED TO ATTEND BUT WELCOME TO COME. I WILL JUST END BY SAYING ONE LAST THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR WILLINGNESS TO SERVE ON THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION. AS IT RELATES TO THE NOMINATIONS COMING OUT OF MY OFFICE. WE ARE CLEAR WITH EACH OF YOU WHAT THE LEVEL OF COMMITMENT WILL BE AND WE SQUARELY FOCUSED ON INDIVIDUALS THAT WOULD RECEIVE ORGANIZATIONAL PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT TO BE ABLE TO SHOW UP AND FULLY PARTICIPATE IN THE ACTIVITIES IN THE WORK OF THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION AND THEN IN LARGE PART THIS IS A BECAUSE THIS IN MY MIND IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT AND POWERFUL COMMISSIONS IN THE CITY OF SEATTLE AS AN ORGANIZATION AND SO I THINK IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE COMMISSIONER THAT WILL BE ONE HUNDRED PERCENT, 110% DEDICATED TO THIS BODY OF WORK BECAUSE IT IS A LOT OF WORK. AND REALLY APPRECIATE THE COLLABORATION WITH THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION AND THE MAYOR’S OFFICE ON IDENTIFYING ADDITIONAL FOLKS AND BEING ABLE TO PRESENT THIS WONDERFUL SLATE. I UNDERSTAND YOUR FIRST MEETING ON MAY 1st SO I AM EXCITED ABOUT THAT. PROBABLY NOT AS EXCITED AS THE CURRENT COMMISSIONERS AND STAFF OVER AT CP C BUT REALLY WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR ALL WILLINGNESS TO SERVE AND REALLY WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE AND PAY RESPECT TO THE WORK THAT YOU DO OUTSIDE OF — OUTSIDE OF CITY HALL AND OUTSIDE OF THE COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION. EACH OF YOU DO A TREMENDOUS SERVICE FOR THE PEOPLE OF OUR CITY SO THANK YOU SO MUCH. LASTLY I WILL THANK CODY RYDER FROM MY OFFICE FOR HELPING ME DO ALL OF THE SCOUTING AND COORDINATING AND FINDING EACH ONE OF YOU AND THEN I’D LIKE TO THANK KYRA BLARE FROM THE MAYOR’S OFFICE FROM HELPING US OUT WITH THE MAYOR’S POINTS AS WELL. SO THANK YOU SO MUCH. YOU ARE FREE TO GO. >>THANK YOU. >>ALL RIGHT. SEE YOU GUYS LATER. BYE. SO WE ARE GOING TO DO A QUICK LITTLE SWITCHEROO HERE. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PATIENCE. APPRECIATE IT. WE WILL GO AHEAD AND MOVE TO OUR NEXT AGENDA ITEM WHICH IS AGENDA ITEM 8. AND I WILL GO AHEAD AND INVITE OUR PRESENTERS TO JOIN US AT THE TABLE IF YOU ARE HERE TO PRESENT ON THIS PARTICULAR BILL. AND THEN MEANWHILE I WILL HAVE ROXANNEA READ AGENDA 8 INTO THE RECORD AND ROXANNEA FEEL FREE TO READ THE SHORT TITLE. >>COUNCIL BILL 119480 AN ORDINANCE RELATING TO THE 2018 FAMILIES EDUCATION PRESCHOOL AND PROMISE LEVY IMPROVING IMPLEMENTATION PLAN ORDINANCE 125604 AND BRIEFING AND DISCUSSION. >>THANK YOU SO MUCH. WHY DOB WE GO AHEAD AND DO SOME INTRODUCTIONS AND I WILL HAN IT OVER. >>CENTRAL STAFF. >>GREAT. BRIAN AND ALLEY. YOU WANT TO KICK US OFF. >>YES. ON MARCH 27th. THE COMMUNITY DISCUSSED POTENTIAL ISSUES RELATED TO THE FAMILIES EDUCATION PRESCHOOL AND PROMISE LEVY. WHAT WE TO THE IMPLEMENTATION PLAN. FOLLOWING THAT MEETING ALLI AND I WORKED WITH COUNCIL MEMBERS TO PREPARE REQUESTED AMENDMENTS. AT THE DIRECTION OF CHAIR GONZALEZ THE NINE AMENDMENTS PREPARED HAVE BEEN CONSOLIDATED TO A SINGLE PROPOSED PLAN. THAT SUBSTITUTE PLAN CAN BE FOUND. ATTACHED TO THE MEMORANDUM IN THE MATERIALS AS ATTACHMENT ONE AND SHOWN WITH MARKUPS AND THOSE ARE PROVIDED IN RED AND GREEN TEXT AND UNDERLINES AND STRIKE OUTS. IF THERE IS NO QUESTION WE WILL MOVE ON. >>NO QUESTIONS. AS A REMINDER COUNCIL MACATTA. WHAT I HAVE ASKED STAFF TO DO IS PRESENT IT IN A CONSENSUS PACKAGE. AS WE ARE MOVING ALONG IF THERE IS A PARTICULAR AMENDMENT OF CONCERN TO YOU, YOU ARE WELCOME TO REQUEST THAT BE PULLED OUT FOR INDIVIDUAL CONSIDERATION, OTHERWISE. WE WILL VOTE ON THE AMENDMENTS AS ONE FULL CONSENSUS PACKAGE AFTER BRIAN AND ALLI HAVE REVIEWED THEM. >>SOUNDS GOOD. >>THANKS. >>OKAY. SO AMENDMENT NUMBER ONE, WOULD EXPAND THE OVERALL OUTCOME FOR THE LEVY TO IN CORP RACE DIFFERENT GROUPS OF PRIORITIZED STUDENTS. IT WOULD MAKE THE LIST OF PRIORITIZED GROUPS WITH THE LEVY ORDINANCE THAT COUNCIL PASSED IN 2018 AND AS SHOWN ON THE SCREEN, BUT THE AMENDMENT WOULD HAVE FOUR ADDITIONAL GROUPS. LANGUAGE LEARNERS AND LGBTQ STUDENTS. IT WOULD HAVE MODIFICATIONSY IT SHOWS UP AND SPECIFICALLY THAT OCCURS IN SECTIONS THAT ARE RELATED TO THE INTENDED RECIPIENTS OF K THROUGH 12 AND THE PRIOR TOATION PROCESS. IN THE BLUE ROBIN AT THE BOTTOM YOU CAN SEE THE PAGE NUMBERS. THESE PAGE NUMBERS REPRESENT THE PAGES IN THE PLAN IN THE PROPOSED SUBSTITUTE PLAN DOCUMENT THAT HAVE BEEN AMENDED. THAT HAVE CHANGES FOR THIS AMENDMENT. THERE ARE SOME PAGE NUMBERS SHOWN IN BOL AND HAVE UNDERLINE. THOSE ARE THE ONES THAT HAVE THE MOST DETAILED OR THE MOST REPRESENTATIVE CHANGES SO IF THERE IS ONE PAGE YOU WANT TO LOOK AT YOU WOULD WANT TO LOOK AT THE ONE BOLD AND UNDERLINE. >>GREAT. THANK YOU. >>ANY QUESTIONS OR ABOUT THIS? LET’S PROCEED. >>AMENDMENT 2 WOULD EXPAND DECEMBER THROUGH 12 SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY BASED INVESTMENT AREA GOAL TO INCORPORATE LEVY STRATEGIES AND ACTIVITIES BEYOND THE SCOPE OF COLLEGE AND JOB READINESS EXPERIENCES. SO IT ADDS THREE MORE ELEMENTS TO THE GOAL. AS SHOWN ON THE JEAN WITH THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS IT WOULD READ SEATTLE STUDENTS HAVE ACCESS TO AND UTILIZE INCREASED ACADEMIC PREPARATION AND EXPANDED LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES AND SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL SKILL BUILDING AND COLLEGE AND JOB READINESS EXPERIENCES THAT PROMOTE HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE GRADATION. >>THIS IS ANOTHER EDIT IN LINE WITH THE ORIGINAL ORDINANCE THAT THE CITY COUNCIL ADVANCED TO THE BALLOT FOR VOTER CONSIDERATION NOVEMBER OF 2018. CORRECT? >>THAT’S CORRECT. >>AND THIS CHANGES IN MY MIND REALLY IMPORTANT BECAUSE ALTHOUGH WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT EACH GRADUATE FROM THE K THROUGH 12 SYSTEM IS READY FOR COLLEGE OR JOB READINESS WE WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THERE IS MUCH MORE TO LEARNING THAN JUST COLLEGE AND JOB READINESS AND THAT INCLUDES THE OTHER ASPECTS OF THE AMENDMENT THAT ARE INCLUDED HERE. SO I REALLY WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ALLOWED THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING AND OUR PARTNERS THE OPPORTUNITY TO ALSO CENTER THEIR WORK IN THESE SPACES AS WELL. THANK YOU. >>THANKS. >>ANY CONCERNS OR QUESTIONS? >>I THINK IT IS EXCELLENT ADDITION AND APPRECIATE YOU BROADENING OUT THE SCOPE FOCUSING HERE AND RECOGNIZING HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO HAVE THE SKILL BUILDING SO THANK YOU. >>GREAT. >>>THE PLAN AS PROPOSED BY THE EXECUTIVE CONTAINS LANGUAGE ALLOWING MODIFIED PROGRAM ELEMENTS WITHOUT COUNCIL APPROVAL DURING THE TERM OF THE LEVY, THIS CLARIFIES WHERE COUNCIL WOULD RETAIN CONTROL AND WHERE THEY WOULD NOT SO IN CERTAIN CASES THERE IS A REQUEST THAT CERTAIN CHANGES WOULD REQUIRE APPROVAL FROM THE CITY COUNCIL BY ORDINANCE INCLUDING CHANGING THE FUNDING LEVEL, TUITION REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PROGRAM, TUITION REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PRESCHOOL PROGRAM AND OTHER MODIFICATIONS OF THE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENT FOR THE PROGRAM AND THEN IT IDENTIFIES SOME COMPONENTS REQUIRING 60 DAY NOTIFICATION TO COUNCIL, THINGS LIKE MODIFYING THE CHILD SELECTION PRIORITIZATION. THE 60 DAY PERIOD IS INTENDED TO GIVE COUNCIL ADVANCED WARNING THAT WE INTEND TO CHANGE THE IMPLEMENTATION PLAN AND IN MOST CASES SHOULD PROVIDE ADEQUATE TIME FOR THE COUNCIL TO CONSIDER IF THEY’RE COMFORTABLE AND IF THEY WANT TO TAKE ACTION TO MODIFY IN A DIFFERENT WAY. IN ADDITION THE AMENDMENT ADDS SPECIFICITY INCLUDED IN REGULAR REPORTING SO WE WILL PREPARE THE ANNUAL REPORT, COMPANION RESOLUTION TO THE ORDINANCE FOR THE LEVY REQUESTED THE REPORT BE DELIVERED TO THE COUNCIL ANNUALLY AND IN ADDITION TO GENERAL REPORTING THIS ADDS A LIST OF SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS ON THINGS LIKE DETAILED INFORMATION ON PARTICIPANTS AND THE BENEFITS OF THE SEATTLE PROMISE PROGRAM.>>QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS? THIS SECTION, THIS AMENDMENT BRINGS THE IMPLEMENTATION AND EVALUATION PLAN LANGUAGE IN ALIGNMENT WITH WHAT THE COUNCIL ROLE HAS BEEN RELATED TO THE LEVY INVESTMENTS AND I FELT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO CITY COUNCIL ONGOING FUNCTION AS AN OVERSIGHT ENTITY IS A LEGISLATIVE BRANCH TO MAKE SURE WE COMMUNICATED CLEARLY EXPECTATIONS AROUND WHAT WE BELIEVE THE DEPARTMENT HAS FULL FLEXIBILITY AROUND MODIFYING AND WHAT ARE SOME THINGS WE ARE NOT QUITE COMFORTABLE LOSING OVERSIGHT OF AND SO WE APPRECIATE THE WILLINGNESS TO INCORPORATE THESE THREE DIFFERENT CATEGORIES. REQUIRING APPROVAL, NOTIFICATION FOR POTENTIAL APPROVAL AND LASTLY THE CATEGORY AROUND MAKING SURE WE LEASE RECEIVE ANNUAL REPORTING FOR PURPOSES OF TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY SO REALLY AM HAPPY TO INCORPORATE THIS AMENDMENT BACK INTO THE IMPLEMENTATION AND EVALUATION PLAN. LET’S MOVE ON. >>REVISING THE TUITION SLIDING FEE SCALE FOR SEATTLE PRESCHOOL PROGRAM AS A QUICK REMINDER THE SCALE WILL BE USED FOR FAMILIES TO PARTICIPATE IN SPP WITH INCOMES ABOVE 350% THE FEDERAL POVERTY LEVEL AND THE SKILL DETERMINES THE AMOUNT EACH FAMILY IS RESPONSIBLE TO PAY SO THIS WOULD MAKE A FEW CHANGES TO THE SCALE PLAN, FIRST BASE AMOUNTS ON A PERCENTAGE CONTRIBUTION TO THE COST OF A PRESCHOOL SLOT AND THE PERCENTAGE CONTRIBUTION INCREASES ALONG WITH INCREASE IN FAMILY INCOME SO YOU CAN SAY THIS IS VERY ABBREVIATED SIMILAR TO THE ONE INCLUDED IN THE APPENDIX OF THE PLAN SO THESE ARE THE FIRST AND THE LAST TWO STEPS SO THAT’S THE TOP AND THE BOTTOM. STEP ONE YOU CAN SEE A FAMILY MAKING 351% WOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR CONTRIBUTING 8% OF THE LOT COST AND FOR CONTEXT IN THE 2019 SCHOOL YEAR THE ESTIMATED SLOT COST IS $11,000 SO 8% OF $11,000 AND YOU GET TO THE TUITION OF $880.>>WHICH IS $88 PER MONTH.>>RIGHT FOR A 10 MONTH SCHOOL YEAR. THE SECOND CHANGE THE AMENDMENT WOULD MAKE, SET THE MINIMUM TUITION SUBSIDY AT 5% SO EVERY FAMILY WOULD RECEIVE AT LEAST 5% SUBSIDY OF THE COST OF THE SLOT. THIS CAN BE SEEN IN THE FINAL ROW OF THE TABLE AT STEP LEVEL XXX AND A FAMILY AT THAT LEVEL OR ANY ABOVE THAT AND JUST FOR CONTEXT THAT IS ABOUT $187,000 PER YEAR, THEY WOULD HAVE TO CONTRIBUTE 95% OF THE COST SO THE ESTIMATE FOR THE 2019 SCHOOL YEAR WOULD BE $10,450 FOR THE ANNUAL COST. THIS IS CONSISTENT WITH THE CURRENT TUITION SCALE AND MAINTAIN THE POLICY OF PROVIDING SOME SUBSIDY TO ALL PARTICIPATING FAMILIES AND LASTLY INCREASING THE NUMBER OF STEPS TO 30 SO AS PROPOSED 25 STEPS, WE GO UP TO 30 ON THIS ONE WHICH REDUCES THE TUITION GROWTH BETWEEN THE STEPS WORKING UP THE SCALE.>>ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? OKAY GREAT THANK YOU.>>AMENDMENT NUMBER FIVE WOULD ADD A SENTENCE TO THE PROMISE SECTION OF THE PLAN DESCRIBING THE OPTION FOR STUDENTS TO ATTEND SCHOOL TEMPORARILY ON A PART-TIME BASIS SO THE PROGRAM SET UP IT REQUIRES FULL-TIME ATTENDANCE BUT STUDENTS CAN REQUEST EXCEPTION ON A QUARTER BY QUARTER BASIS UNDER LIMITED CIRCUMSTANCES AND SOME ARE DEMONSTRATING A SUBSTANTIAL NEED, SORRY SUBSTANTIAL HARDSHIP TO ATTENDING FULL-TIME OR BEING ABLE TO OR UNABLE TO ENROLL FULL-TIME DUE TO LIMITED COURSE OFFERINGS.>> COUNCILMEMBER? >>THANK YOU FOR THIS AMENDMENT, PRIOR TO THE INCLUSION OF THE AMENDMENT IF THERE WAS A SITUATION WHERE A STUDENT NEEDED TO BE AVAILABLE TO WORK PART-TIME AND COULD NOT GO TO SCHOOL FULL-TIME IF THEY NEEDED TO ATTEND A FAMILY OBLIGATION OR TAKE CARE OF A LOVED ONE ON FAMILY LEAVE OR SOMETHING THEY WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROMISE PROGRAM SO YOU ARE CREATING OPPORTUNITIES TO MAKE SURE THERE’S FLEXIBILITY.>>IT IS A CURRENT PRACTICE THEY ARE ALLOWED BUT THE PLAN DID NOT MAKE THAT CLEAR. SO IF YOU READ THROUGH THE PLAN IT APPEARED THE ONLY OPTION WAS TO ATTEND FULL-TIME SO THIS IS SIMPLY RECOGNIZING THE APPEALS PROCESS WHICH EXISTS. >>I WANT TO CALL OUT HOW IMPORTANT IT IS THAT YOU HAVE INCLUDED THIS IN THE FINAL PROPOSAL. A LOT OF TIMES ESPECIALLY FOR WOMEN AND COMMUNITIES OF COLOR AND FOLKS IN VULNERABLE SITUATIONS IF IT DOES NOT ALLOW FOR CERTAIN ACTIVITIES THAN MANY OF US MAKE THE ASSUMPTION WE SHOULD NOT APPLY OR WE WOULD NOT BE ELIGIBLE AND WILL NOT FIT THE DAILY NEED SO THIS IS A GREAT ADDITION ESPECIALLY TO MAKE SURE THE TARGET POPULATION OF WOMEN, PEOPLE OF COLOR, MEMBERS OF THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY. FOLKS FEEL LIKE IF THERE IS SOMETHING THAT COMES UP WHERE THEY MAY HAVE TAKEN HIMSELF OUT IN THE PAST THEY SEE THERE IS FLEXIBILITY CLEARLY SO THANK YOU. >>ABSOLUTELY AND PRIOR WE HAD HEARD SOME INTERESTING DATA AROUND THE PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS GRADUATING FROM PUBLIC SCHOOLS WHO ENTER INTO SEATTLE COLLEGES BUT DO SO ONLY PART- TIME STATUS AND THE NUMBER, REMIND ME. ABOUT 43% FROM SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS OF THOSE GRADUATES ATTEND SEATTLE COLLEGES ON A PART-TIME BASIS AND I REALLY APPRECIATED THE INFORMATION WE RECEIVED FROM SEATTLE COLLEGES THAT IN PRACTICE THEY ARE DESIRING TO BE FLEXIBLE AND MAKING SURE PART-TIME STUDENTS CAN BE ACCOMMODATED AND WANTED TO MAKE IT YOU KNOW, REALLY FIRM AND CLEAR BY PUTTING IT IN THE ACTUAL IMPLEMENTATION AND EVALUATION PLAN TO ENSURE CONTINUATION OF THE PRACTICE.>> GREAT NEXT AMENDMENT. >>AMENDMENT NUMBER SIX INSERTING A NEW PARAGRAPH INTO THE PROMISE INVESTMENT AREA SECTION SPECIFYING TOPICS TO INCLUDE IN THE RACIAL EQUITY TOOLKIT ANALYSIS. THE AMENDMENT WOULD REQUIRE ANALYSIS TO INCLUDE EVALUATION OF FIRST PROGRAM EXPANSION TO STUDENTS WISHING TO ENROLL IN THE PROMISE PROGRAM EXCLUSIVELY PART-TIME SO THE ONE WE DISCUSSED WAS TEMPORARY PART- TIME SO THIS WOULD HAVE THEM LOOK AT IT FOR STUDENTS WHO WANT TO EXTEND EXCLUSIVELY PART- TIME AND THE SECOND PART IS THE IMPACT OF THE SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS REQUIREMENTS APPLICABLE TO STUDENTS THAT RECEIVE FINANCIAL AID SO THAT WOULD INCLUDE IT AS WELL. CONSISTENT WITH THE OTHER REQUIREMENTS FOR AMENDMENT NUMBER THREE REQUIRING DEEL TO SEEK OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE PRIOR TO PROPOSING POLICY CHANGES STEMMING FROM THE RACIAL EQUITY TOOLKIT ANALYSIS.>>ANY QUESTIONS? THIS IS ANOTHER AREA WHERE BECAUSE THIS SEATTLE PROMISE PROGRAM IS A NEW FORMAL TOO MUCH BIGGER SCALE PROGRAM THAN THE 13 OR 14 YEAR SCHOLARSHIP WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE WERE APPROACHING THE FUNDING AND STRUCTURE AND THE MODEL OF SEATTLE PROMISE IN A WAY THAT WOULD NOT RESULT IN UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES PARTICULARLY BECAUSE IT IS LAST DOLLAR IN PROGRAM WHICH MEANS THOSE WHO HAVE THE GREATEST NEED WILL RECEIVE THE LEAST AMOUNT IN TERMS OF DIRECT TUITION ASSISTANCE EVEN THOUGH THEY WILL BE SUPPORTED THROUGH EQUITY SCHOLARSHIPS WHICH PROVIDE THE MUCH-NEEDED ASSISTANCE AROUND BEING ABLE TO PAY LAB FEES AND BOOKS AND ALL OF THOSE THINGS SO THIS IS OUR INTENT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE RACIAL EQUITY TOOLKIT ANALYSIS WILL HELP US IDENTIFY ANY UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES SHOULD THEY BEGIN TO HAPPEN. GREAT.>>AMENDMENT SEVEN WOULD PROVIDE ADDITIONAL SPECIFICITY REGARDING REFERRAL AND CONNECTION SERVICES PROVIDED TO STUDENTS BY SEATTLE COLLEGE ADVISORS TO SUPPORT STUDENTS LIVES OUTSIDE OF COLLEGE, THE PLAN PROPOSED NOTES STUDENTS WILL HAVE ACCESS TO NON-LEVY FUNDED SUPPORTS FOR LIFE BEYOND COLLEGE BUT DOES NOT DESCRIBE THE RANGE OF PROGRAMS AND SERVICES APPLICABLE SO THIS AMENDMENT ADDS SPECIFICITY AT A SOMEWHAT HIGH-LEVEL RECOGNIZING PROGRAM NAMES AND TYPES OF SERVICES TO GET CHANGED AND EXPANDED BUT ALSO ASK THAT DEEL WORK WITH SEATTLE COLLEGES TO DEVELOP AND MAINTAIN RESOURCES SO ADVISORS HAVE THAT AT THEIR DISPOSAL AND THIS CONNECTS WITH AMENDMENT 3 IN TERMS OF ANNUAL REPORTING ASKING THAT THEY TRACK THE REFERRALS AND HOW SUCCESSFUL STUDENTS ARE IN OBTAINING SERVICES. IT ALSO RELATES TO AMENDMENT THREE IN TERMS OF REPORTING BACK ON ANY SUCCESS DEEL HAS WITH STREAMLINING APPLICATION FOR LEAST CITY SERVICES PROVIDED SO PEOPLE ARE NOT HAVING TO APPLY IN 15 DIFFERENT PLACES FOR DIFFERENT SERVICES LIKE CHILDCARE OR FOOD SUPPORT AND HOUSING AND THAT SORT OF THING.>>ANY QUESTIONS?>>I WANT TO REPLICATE THIS IN ALMOST EVERYTHING WE LOOK AT.>>GREAT, NEXT AMENDMENT. >>AMENDMENT NUMBER EIGHT ADDING A LABOR HARMONY COMPONENT TO THE LIST OF METHODS USED TO EVALUATE RESPONSES. THE PLAN CURRENTLY STATES DEEL CONSIDERS PAST SUCCESS IN ACHIEVING RESULTS, COMMITMENT LEADERSHIP FOR OUTCOMES, THE MEANS AND METHODS PROPOSED AND THE COST AND THIS AMENDMENT WOULD ADD THE PHRASE ADHERENCE TO LABOR LAWS AND A COMMITMENT TO LABOR HARMONY TO THE LIST OF EVALUATION METHODS. >>I KNOW THIS IS WHEN THE OFFICES WORKED ON TOGETHER AND I AM HAPPY TO PROVIDE YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK TO IT.>> T GIVE A MUCH. FIRST, THANK YOU FOR YOUR ENGAGEMENT WITH US AS WE CRAFTED LEGISLATION OR AMENDMENT TO THE LEGISLATION. THIS IS REALLY EXCITING TO MAKE SURE CITY DOLLARS ARE BEING REALLY INVESTED IN THE PROVIDERS AND ORGANIZATIONS WHO ARE PROVIDING BEST PRACTICES IN TERMS OF LABOR POLICIES AND CITY DOLLARS FUND THOSE ORGANIZATIONS SUPPORTING VERSUS OPPOSING COLLECTIVE VOICES OF WORKERS. PART OF WHAT WE CONTINUE TO BRING TO THE CONVERSATION IS THAT WHEN WORKERS DO WELL EVERYONE IS BETTER. THE KIDS DO BETTER, COMMUNITIES DO BETTER WHEN WE INVEST INTO THINGS LIKE SECURE SCHEDULING AND MINIMUM WAGE. THESE ARE BASELINE INVESTMENTS AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WHEN WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO HOLD THE PURSE AND INVEST IN STRONG PRIORITIES WE ARE PUTTING FORWARD WHAT IS BEST FOR THE PUBLIC. IN THIS CASE LABOR UNIONS, COLLECTIVE WORKER ACTION IS VERY MUCH THE OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO SHOW THAT WE HAVE A HIGH- VALUE THAT WE ASSOCIATE WITH LABOR PROTECTIONS AND HIGHER STANDARDS. WE KNOW LABOR UNIONS AND COLLECTIVE WORKER ACTION HAS LED TO THINGS LIKE SAFER WORKPLACES, BANNING CHILD LABOR, HAVING A WEEKEND, HAVING LABOR LAWS THAT GIVE US MINIMUM WAGE AND ALSO NOT LOSING YOUR HAND ARM OR FINGER AND RELATED TO EDUCATION MANY PROVIDERS ARE ON THE LINE PUTTING THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE TO FIGHT FOR SMALLER CLASS SIZES FOR EXAMPLE. SO WE ARE PROUD OF THE WORK THEY HAVE DONE WITH US IN PARTNERSHIP AND I THINK ESPECIALLY IN A POST-JANICE WORLD THE NATIONAL ATTACKS AND DIALOGUE AGAINST UNIONS, THIS IS AN IMPORTANT OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW WE STAND WITH WORKERS AND THE COMMITMENT TO BASIC LABOR PROTECTION SO I APPLAUD YOU AND ALSO WE SHOULD NOTE THE MAYOR’S NEGOTIATIONS THAT SHE DID ON THE MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING WITH THE COALITION FOR CITY UNIONS TO SHOW WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE TO BE A GOOD EMPLOYER AND WORK TO CREATE MORE OPPORTUNITIES SO WORKERS CAN CONTINUE TO HAVE A VOICE. THAT IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF LEADING BY EXAMPLE AS AN EMPLOYER. SO WITH THAT I AM EXCITED TO PUT THIS FORWARD TO MAKE SURE WE CONTINUE TO SEE WORKERS STANDARDS LIFTED UP AND LET’S NOT FORGET THIS IS A GOOD INVESTMENT WITH A HIGHER RETURN ON INVESTMENT WHEN WE HAVE HIGHER UNIONIZATION AND STRONGER WORKER PROTECTIONS. PEOPLE ARE HEALTHIER LONGER WITH A LONGER ATTENTION, LESS TURNOVER AND EXCITED TO SEE THIS INCLUDED SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR ONGOING WORK. >>ABSOLUTELY, THANK YOU. I REALLY WANT TO MAKE CLEAR THAT THIS IS REALLY INTENDED AND DESIGNED TO SIGNAL TO PARTNERS WHO WE DO WORK WITH THAT WE DO VALUE THEIR RELATIONSHIPS WITH LABOR UNIONS TO PROVIDE THESE CRITICAL SERVICES TO OUR CHILDREN AND WANT TO CONTINUE IN THE TRADITION. NOT JUST OF SIGNALING THE VALUE BUT ALSO ADDRESSING THE PRACTICALITY AROUND WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE ARE PROVIDING CITY TAXPAYER DOLLARS TO THE FUNDING OF THESE PROGRAMS AND IT IS THE EXPECTATION THOSE SERVICES WILL BE PROVIDED AND LASTLY I WILL SAY THIS LANGUAGE IS NOT INTENDED TO INJECT OURSELVES AS A CITY INTO THE LABOR RELATIONSHIP THAT EXISTS BETWEEN EMPLOYERS AND THEIR EMPLOYEES AND THAT COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT RELATIONSHIP SO I WANTED TO MAKE CLEAR TO OUR PARTNERS IN THIS WORK THAT IS NOT THE CITY’S INTENT TO INJECT OURSELVES AS A THIRD-PARTY IN THAT GOOD FAITH LABOR RELATIONSHIP AND IN THOSE GOOD FAITH LABOR NEGOTIATIONS. THIS IS REALLY MORE ABOUT MAKING SURE THAT THOSE PARTNERS THAT DO HAVE LABOR UNIONS ARE UNDERSTANDING WE TAKE AND VALUE THAT RELATIONSHIP WITH LABOR UNIONS.>>ABSOLUTELY GREAT.>>NUMBER NINE IS THE FINAL AMENDMENT WHICH WOULD MAKE SOME TECHNICAL CORRECTIONS TO THE PLAN AND SOME FALL INTO FOUR GROUPS. FIRST INSERTING THE WORD FEES INTO THE LIST OF ELIGIBLE USE FOR THE SEATTLE PROMISE EQUITY SCHOLARSHIP. FEES OR SOMETHING WE HAVE BEEN CONSIDERING ELIGIBLE EXPENSES AND HAS BEEN SHOWING UP IN OTHER MATERIALS BUT THIS MAKES IT EXPLICIT IN THE PLAN. SECOND CORRECTING PAGE NUMBERS IN THE TABLE OF CONTEXT AND THE APPENDIX. THIRD CORRECTING PROCUREMENT TERMINOLOGY FOR PUBLIC HEALTH, RIGHT NOW IT SAYS PUBLIC HEALTH USES RFI BUT USES RFA REQUEST FOR APPLICATION. FOR THICKER A COUPLE TYPOGRAPHICAL ERRORS AND THAT IS IT.>>GREAT, EXCELLENT. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? >>HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WORKING ON THIS? TODAY IS THE CULMINATION OF HOW MUCH TIME?>>I THINK WE STARTED THIS IN 2017. EARLY 2017. SO IT HAS BEEN A WILD. >>CONGRATULATIONS ON THE CUSP OF A VOTE. >>THAT SEEMS LIKE A GOOD SEGUE. SO, DO I MOVE THIS AS ONE AMENDMENT OR 129?>>YOU CAN MOVE AS A SUBSTITUTE PLAN VERSION 3.>>THAT IS NOT THE LANGUAGE I WAS GIVEN. I WILL MAKE IT UP ON THE FLY. I MOVE, DON’T HAVE TO APPROVE THE AMENDMENTS FIRST?>>BASICALLY ONE AMENDMENT YOU ARE PROVING THE SUBSTITUTE AND THEN YOU WILL APPROVE THE BILL OR THE PLAN AS AMENDED. >>I MOVE FOR THE ADOPTION AND APPROVAL OF VERSION 3 OF COUNSEL BILL 119480 WHICH IS A SUBSTITUTE FOR VERSION 2. DID I SAY THAT WRONG? >>WE ARE NOT AMENDING THE BILL WE ARE AMENDING ATTACHMENT 1 TO THE BILL. ATTACHMENT 1 THE PROPOSED SUBSTITUTE IS VERSION 3. >>WHY DON’T YOU MAKE THE MOTION? SAY THE SENTENCE AND I WILL SAY SO MOVED.>>SO YOU WOULD MOVE TO AMEND ATTACHMENT 1 TO THE BILL AS SHOWN IN THE SUBSTITUTE VERSION 3.>>OF COUNSEL BILL 1149 114980. THAT IS MY MOTION. ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION?>>I REALLY LIKE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TO ATTACHMENT 1. ALL RIGHT ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE. ANY OPPOSED? NONE OPPOSED. MOTION PASSES. NOW I MOVED TO RECOMMEND THAT THE FULL COUNCIL ADOPT COUNSEL BILL 119480 AS AMENDED.>>I SECOND. >>ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? ALL THOSE IN FAVOR? ANY OPPOSED? NONE OPPOSED. COUNSEL BILL 119480 AS AMENDED WILL BE CONSIDERED ON MONDAY, APRIL 22 ON MONDAY, APRIL 22, 2019.>>CHAIR, ONE POINT OF ORDER. YOU WILL NEED TO MOVE TO SUSPEND THE RULES TO REFER. >>WE WILL DO THAT LATER AFTER THE RESOLUTIONS. WIELDED THEM TOGETHER. JUST SO YOU WILL KNOW IT WILL BE APRIL 22. WE WILL MOVE THEM ALL AS A PACKAGE AT THE END. THAT IS VERY EXCITING. I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT IT. I WILL MAKE FINAL REMARKS ABOUT THE WHOLE THING WHEN WE HAVE MORE FOLKS AT THE TABLE. LET’S MOVE ONTO THE NEXT AGENDA ITEM.>>IF YOU ARE HERE TO PRESENT ON AGENDA ITEM 9 AND 10 I WOULD INVITE YOU TO JOIN US AT THE TABLE.>>AGENDA ITEM 9 RESOLUTION 318 RESOLUTION 31881 RESOLUTION RELATED TO THE 2018 FAMILIES EDUCATION PRESCHOOL AND PROMISE LEVY APPROVING A PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY OF SEATTLE AND THE SEATTLE COLLEGE DISTRICT FOR BRIEFING DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE VOTE AND AGENDA ITEM 10 RESOLUTION 31882 A RESOLUTION RELATED TO THE 2018 FAMILIES EDUCATION PRESCHOOL AND PROMISE LEVY APPROVING A PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY OF SEATTLE AND THE SEATTLE SCHOOL DISTRICT FOR BRIEFING DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE VOTE.>> EXCELLENT. I THINK EVERYBODY HAS THEIR NAME TAGS. OKAY. WE KNOW WHO YOU ALL ARE WE JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THE VIEWING PUBLIC CAN SEE YOUR NAMES. LET’S GO AHEAD AND DO A QUICK ROUND OF INTRODUCTIONS AND THEN AM I GOING TO HAND IT BACK OVER TO YOU OR TO THE DIRECTOR? OKAY.>>BRIAN GOODNIGHT. >> DWANE CHAPPELLE. >> DENISE JUNEAU SUPERINTENDENT OF SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. >>SHEILA EDWARDS LANG PRESIDENT OF SEATTLE COLLEGE. >>SHOUAN PAN. >> DIANE DEBACKER. >> CHRIS ALEJANO .>>THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR BEING WITH US THIS AFTERNOON. REALLY APPRECIATE THE ONGOING PARTNERSHIP AND WORK. IT HAS TAKEN US COLLECTIVELY A LONG TIME TO GET TO THIS POINT WHERE WE ARE CONSIDERING RESOLUTIONS THAT APPROVE THE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENTS BETWEEN THE CITY OF SEATTLE AND SEATTLE COLLEGE DISTRICT AND THE SEATTLE SCHOOL DISTRICT AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THE VIEWING PUBLIC KNOWS BOTH AS A RELATES TO THE PREVIOUS COUNSEL BILL WHICH APPROVED THE IMPLEMENTATION AND EVALUATION PLAN AND THESE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT, THAT THE LEVY OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE HAS REVIEWED ALL MATERIALS AND ISSUED THEIR CONSENSUS WITH REGARD TO A RECOMMENDATION FOR CITY COUNCIL TO APPROVE ALL OF THE ABOVE. REALLY EXCITED TO HAVE YOU HERE. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR WILLINGNESS TO JOIN US AND FOR YOUR WILLINGNESS TO CONTINUE ON IN THIS PARTNERSHIP. WITH THAT BEING SAID PLEASE TAKE IT AWAY. >>THANK YOU FOR THE INTRODUCTION. WE ARE HERE TODAY, WITH OUR AMAZING PARTNERS. THE SUPERINTENDENT, DR. LANG, PRESIDENT OF THE COLLEGE AND DR. DIANE DEBACKER. TODAY WE WILL BE SHARING SOME HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT AND WHAT YOU WILL SEE UP HERE, THIS IS THE PRESENTATION OUTLINE OF WHAT WE WILL BE GOING THROUGH. SO ULTIMATELY I JUST WANT TO KICK IT OFF AND TELL YOU THE PURPOSE OF THE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT. IDEALLY IT IS FOR US TO HAVE OUTLINED AND DEFINED ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES FOR EACH OF OUR PARTNERS AND PARTNERS BEING SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND THE COLLEGES SO THOSE ARE THE TWO WE WILL BE SPEAKING TO WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT. AS YOU MENTIONED EARLIER. HERE IS A BRIEF TIMELINE OF THE HISTORY OF THE PARTNERSHIP. SO IT STARTED IN 1990 BEFORE ANY OF US WERE BORN. BUT IT IS BRINGING US HERE TO TODAY WHERE WE HAVE A NEW PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT, HISTORICALLY IT HAS BEEN DEEL THE CITY OF SEATTLE WITH SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS BUT WITH THE NEW ADDITION TO SEATTLE PROMISE WE HAVE ANOTHER AMAZING PARTNER THE TABLE WHICH IS THE COLLEGES. SO AS YOU TAKE A GLANCE AT THE TIMELINE, WE WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU ALL, I WILL NOT GO THROUGH ALL OF THE BULLETS BUT I WILL START OR SHOULD I SAY END AT THE LAST BULLET OF WHERE WE ARE NOW WHICH IS APRIL 2019. I WANT TO DO THANK SUPERINTENDENT DENISE JUNEAU AND SUPER SEATTLE SCHOOLS AS THE BOARD VOTED TO APPROVE THE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT WHICH IS NOW BRINGING US HERE TODAY IN FRONT OF YOU. SO I WANTED TO THANK YOU WITH THAT. DIVING A LITTLE INTO THE ORDINANCE TEXT. EARLIER YOU MENTIONED BASED ON THE ORDINANCE WE ARE REQUIRED TO DEVELOP A PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT THAT AS I MENTIONED WILL ESTABLISH ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF EACH ENTITY AND WE ARE REALLY TALKING ABOUT HOW WE WILL ACHIEVE OUR DESIRED OUTCOME. AND WHAT THE ORDINANCE MENTIONS IS THE PROCEEDS THAT MAY BE LEVERAGED TO SUPPORT SEATTLE SCHOOL DISTRICTS AND THE SEATTLE COLLEGES PROGRAMS OR FUNCTIONS WITH THE EXISTENCE OF THE CURRENT PARTNERHIP AGREEMENT. WHAT I ALSO WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU IS IN THE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT WE HAVE SECTIONS AND A FEW SECTIONS WE WANTED TO REALLY SHARE WITH YOU NOW. REALLY STARTING OFF WITH SECTION 2 OF THE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT AND IN SECTION 2 OF THE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT IT HIGHLIGHTS THE COMMONALITIES BETWEEN BOTH COLLEGES AND SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOL’S PARTNERSHIP. SO I WILL GO THROUGH A FEW OF THEM. SOME OF THE COMMONALITIES. ONE IS THAT WE ARE ALL INTENDING TO INVEST IN SEATTLE CHILDREN AND STUDENTS AND FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES WHO HAVE BEEN HISTORICALLY UNDERSERVED. WE ALL PLAN TO USE DATA-DRIVEN AND OUTCOMES-BASED DECISION- MAKING AND WE ALL PLAN ON IMPLEMENTING EVIDENCE-BASED STRATEGIES AND PROMISING PRACTICES TO ACHIEVE THESE GOALS AND WE ALL WANT TO MAKE SURE WE ARE PROVIDING ACCESS TO BUILDING CAPACITY OR OPPORTUNITIES WITH PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS BASICALLY TO IMPROVE QUALITY INFRASTRUCTURE AND INSTRUCTION AND SO FORTH. AS YOU KNOW, AS MENTIONED EARLIER THE LOC WHICH YOU ARE A MEMBER OF ACTUALLY SHAPED THE INITIAL INVESTMENT IN PRIORITIES AND PRINCIPLES THAT ARE ESTABLISHED IN THE ORDINANCE SO I WANTED TO YOU TO KNOW WE ARE COMMITTED TO INVESTING AND IMPLEMENT FUNDS AS RECOMMENDED. SO WHAT I WILL DO NOW IS ASK SUPERINTENDENT DENISE JUNEAU TO SPEAK TO SECTION 9 TO THE PARTNERSHIP. >>THANK YOU AND THANK YOU FOR ALL THE HARD WORK THAT HAS GONE INTO THIS. I HAVE TO COMMEND DEEL FOR THEIR PARTNERSHIP AND THE WORK THAT THEIR STAFF AND OUR STAFF HAVE DONE TOGETHER. SUPER APPRECIATIVE OF THE CONTINUED PARTNERSHIP ON THESE EFFORTS. HAS SAID LAST NIGHT THE SCHOOL BOARD UNANIMOUSLY VOTED TO APPROVE THE AGREEMENT SO I KNOW THEY ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO GROWING THIS AND MAKING SURE WE ARE MAKING INVESTMENTS IN THE CORRECT PLACE AND I THINK THAT SPEAKS HIGHLY OF THE WORK DONE IN THE PAST THAT THERE IS TRUST BEING BUILT. THE GOVERNMENTS ARE LOOKING TO WORK WITH EACH OTHER AND WE ARE ALL IN ON MAKING SURE WE ARE DOING THE WORK THAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN ON BEHALF OF SEATTLE’S YOUTH AND OF COURSE MOVING INTO PROMISE WILL BE A GREAT BENEFIT. AS YOU ALL KNOW THE PAST, WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO CONTINUING TO BUILDING ON HIGH- QUALITY PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS THAT ARE LOCATED IN SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. THEY HAVE BEEN, THE IDEA THAT WE CAN CREATE THOSE TYPES OF PROGRAMS WITHIN THE SCHOOL FOR THE KINDERGARTENS AND THEY ARE READY TO LEARN IT HAS BEEN REALLY STRONG. THE K-12 INVESTMENTS IN THE PAST HAVE BEEN HELPFUL PARTICULARLY THOSE MADE AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOLS. THOSE SCHOOLS AS A RESULT OF THE PARTNERSHIP HAVE BECOME AWARD-WINNING GAP CLOSING SCHOOLS SO THAT HAS BEEN IMPORTED TO THE DISTRICT AS WELL. FAMILY SUPPORT WORKERS AND THE WRAPAROUND SUPPORTS HAVE BEEN HELPFUL TO FAMILIES AND STUDENTS. AS YOU MAY BE AWARE, OUR DISTRICT RECENTLY ADOPTED A NEW STRATEGIC PLAN FOR THE DISTRICT AND THAT IS LOOKING FORWARD PUTTING EFFORTS IN WRITING ON THE CORRECT PRIORITIES. A LOT OF THAT IS AROUND MAKING SURE WE ARE INCLUDING STUDENTS AND FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES OF COLOR. BRINGING THEM TO THE TABLE MAKING SURE THEY HAVE A VOICE, FOCUSING INTENTIONALLY ON STUDENTS OF COLOR FOR EDUCATIONAL JUSTICE WITH A FOCUS ON AFRICAN-AMERICAN MALES. PARTNERSHIPS LIKE THE ONE THAT WE HAVE HERE WITH THE CITY WILL HELP US MOVE THE DIAL SO I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO CONTINUING THOSE EFFORTS AND MAKING SURE WE DO EVERYTHING WE CAN SO EVERY STUDENT IN THE SYSTEM IS SUCCESSFUL. AND OF COURSE THAT GOES RIGHT INTO THE SEATTLE PROMISE AND THE POTENTIAL OF THAT TO CREATE A WORKFORCE. WE HAVE THE POTENTIAL NOW FOR EVERY STUDENT TO STEP OUT AS A PREPARED GRADUATE, STEPPING INTO EITHER, TO GET A COLLEGE DEGREE OR WORK CREDENTIAL AND THAT IS SUPERPOWERFUL FOR THE CITY. I THINK THE GREAT THINGS THAT CAN COME OUT OF THAT, DOING IT WITH THE CITY MOVING FORWARD TOGETHER IS GOING TO BE A REALLY STRONG PARTNERSHIP. UNLIKE ANYTHING I HAVE SEEN IN THE COUNTRY ACTUALLY. GOING FORWARD THE IDEA TO CREATE PRE-K TO COLLEGE SEAMLESS SYSTEM THAT IS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH EVERYBODY SITTING AT THIS TABLE, THAT IS SUPERPOWERFUL SO I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP AND PARTNERSHIP GOING FORWARD.>>THANK YOU SUPERINTENDENT. APPRECIATE THOSE REMARKS AND YOUR PERSPECTIVE OF. I HAVE BEEN REALLY PLEASED AND INSPIRED BY THIS WORK. AS A PERSON WHO GRADUATED FROM PUBLIC SCHOOLS MYSELF, NOT SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS BUT I HAVE REALLY APPRECIATED THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONTINUE TO BUILD ON A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT AND THAT IS IN LARGE PART BECAUSE OF YOU AND YOUR STAFF AND WILLINGNESS TO ENGAGE WITH US AND I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR WILLINGNESS TO CONTINUE TO BUILD THIS RELATIONSHIP FOR THE BENEFIT OF OUR YOUTH. >>NEXT UP WE WILL ASK CHANCELLOR SHOUAN PAN AND DR. SHEILA LANG TO SHARE A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT WHAT SECTION 9 IS IN THE PARTNERSHIP FOR THEM AS WELL.>>THANK YOU GOOD AFTERNOON. THIS PARTNERSHIP IN MY MIND IS VERY HISTORIC. CITY SEATTLE COLLEGES HAVE HAD GREAT RELATIONSHIPS BUT THIS TAKES IT TO ANOTHER LEVEL. A DIFFERENT NOTCH. THIS PARTNERSHIP IS REALLY ABOUT , IN FACT THE THRUST OF THIS AND OUR MISSION JIBES VERY WELL, ABOUT GETTING LOCAL YOUTH COMING TO SEATTLE COLLEGES TO PREPARE ACADEMICALLY FOR JOBS, CAREER, TRANSPORT AND COMPLETION SO WE PREPARE LOCAL YOUTH FOR SEATTLE JOBS AND THAT IS THE VISION OF THE CITY AND THE MAYOR AND OUR STAFF. WE HAVE BEEN WORKING HARD MANY MEETINGS, GREAT CONVERSATIONS, SOMETIMES DIFFICULT BUT IT IS GREAT TO BE HERE. I WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT TO THANK THE CITY COUNCIL, THE MAYOR, PARTICULARLY TO YOU AND COUNCILWOMAN GONZALES AND JOHNSON YOUR LEADERSHIP IS INSTRUMENTAL TO GET US HERE. WE ARE VERY EXCITED, FULLY COMMITTED TO DO WHAT WE CAN TO MAKE SURE YOKEL LUTHER LOCAL YOUTH HAVE A GOOD CHANCE. ALL OF THEM TO COME TO SEATTLE COLLEGES THROUGH THIS PROGRAM. OR PEOPLE NOT IN THE PROGRAM FRANKLY, TO HAVE A VERY GOOD CHANCE TO GET A COLLEGE CREDENTIAL SO THEY CAN TRANSFER, THEY CAN GET A JOB OR CERTIFICATION. THE CONTENT OF THE PARTNERSHIP IS WITH THE WORK OF MANY PEOPLE I WANT TO AGAIN THANK AS THE DEEL STAFF HAS BEEN WONDERFUL INCLUDING THE CITY COUNCIL STAFF AND THE MAYOR’S OFFICE HIMSELF HAS BEEN INSTRUMENTAL IN GETTING US HERE. WE ARE VERY EXCITED, COMMITTED TO DOING EVERYTHING WE CAN TO TAKE THE LESSONS LEARNED FROM BEST PRACTICES TO DO WHAT WE CAN.

I ALSO WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP. IT HAS BEEN A LONG HAUL GETTING TO THIS DAY AND HOPEFULLY MONDAY WILL HAVE A FULL COUNCIL PASS THIS BUT YOU HAVE BEEN A TREMENDOUS PARTNER IN THIS. ONE OF THE THINGS, WE ARE SIGNING THE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENTS WITH THE CITY AND THE COLLEGES AND WITH THE CITY AND SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS WHAT THIS HAS DONE AND THE WAY WE HAVE LAID OUT THE LEVY AND THE IMPLEMENTATION PLAN HAS REALLY BROUGHT PARTNERS TOGETHER TO CREATE A SYSTEM FOR OUR KIDS AND WE KNOW AS WE SEE THE PROSPERITY HAPPENING IN OUR CITY THERE IS HUGE DISPARITY IN WHO IS GETTING ACCESS TO THAT PROSPERITY. SO FOR ALL OF US TO BE ON THE SAME PAGE AND PUTTING EQUITY FIRST AND I LOVE THE WAY THAT OUR NEW SUPERINTENDENT HAS OUTLINED IT, THOUGH STUDENTS FURTHEST AWAY FROM EDUCATIONAL JUSTICE AND WE HAVE EQUITY, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION IN OUR STRATEGIC PLAN IT IS AT THE HEART AND CENTER OF SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN AT THE HEART OF THE CITY. SO NOW WE HAVE COME TOGETHER TO SAY THIS IS WHAT WE WANT FOR THE CHILDREN AND IT IS A HISTORICAL MOMENT IN OUR CITY SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP.>>THANK YOU SO MUCH. REALLY HAVE ENJOYED THE OPPORTUNITY WORKING WITH BOTH OF YOU OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS SINCE I HAVE BEEN ON CITY COUNCIL, FIRST IN THE CONTEXT OF GETTING THE FUNDING AND THEN THE TRANSITION INTO THINKING ABOUT MORE SUSTAINABLE PROJECTS AND I WANT TO THANK SEATTLE COLLEGES AND THE FOUNDATION FOR THEIR WILLINGNESS TO STEP UP AND ESTABLISH ENDOWMENT AND GROW THE PROGRAM. THAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT AND AS A GRADUATE MYSELF OF A COMMUNITY COLLEGE I UNDERSTAND THE POWER OF BEING ABLE TO ACCESS EDUCATION IN A WAY THAT IS AFFORDABLE AND AT HOME AND CLOSE TO HOME. I HOPE THAT MANY STUDENTS WHO HAVE SIMILAR EXPERIENCES TO MINE AND TO THOSE OF US SITTING AROUND THIS TABLE CONTINUE TO SEE THIS AS A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY TO BE ABLE TO BE LITERALLY ANYTHING THEY WANT TO BE. VERY EXCITED ABOUT CONTINUING THE PARTNERSHIP AND HAVING IT BE MORE FORMALIZED IN THIS WAY AND LOOKING FORWARD TO THE ONGOING LESSONS AND LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES WE WILL HAVE TOGETHER AS WE LAUNCH THE SEATTLE PROMISE IN A MUCH MORE FORMAL AND LARGER WAY SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED PARTNERSHIP AND WORK.>>SO YOU TALK ABOUT FOUNDATION.

ANYTHING THAT ANYONE ELSE WOULD LIKE TO ADD?>>I HAVE ONE MORE SLIDE.>> TAKE US HOME UNLESS COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA HAS ANY QUESTIONS. >>THIS IS ACTUALLY THE LAST SLIDE I WANTED TO SHARE WITH EVERYONE. PRETTY EXCITING, IN SECTION 10 IT SPEAKS TO WHAT WE ALL HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT BUT SECTION 10 HIGHLIGHTS OUR APPROACH TO WORKING TOGETHER IN THE MUTUAL COMMITMENT TO COLLABORATION, COMMUNICATION OR BETTER COMMUNICATION AND SUPPORTING EACH OTHER IN SHARED GOALS AND ULTIMATELY LOOKING AT STRENGTHENING OUR VOICE AND MESSAGING REGARDING THE PROGRAM ENROLLMENT. FROM SPP THROUGH PROMISE SO WE REALLY WANTED TO SHARE THIS PEACE WITH YOU AS WELL.

SINCE SHE STARTED AND HAS BEEN DOING A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF WORK IN ADVOCATING FOR SOME OF HER OWN PERSONAL PRIORITIES THROUGH THE LEVY INCLUDING MAKING SURE THERE ARE STRONG INVESTMENTS IN INCREASING THE DIVERSITY OF EDUCATORS WITHIN THE SYSTEM WHICH IS OF COURSE AS WE ALL KNOW A REALLY CLEAR STRATEGY TOWARD CLOSING THAT OPPORTUNITY GAP AND KIND OF HEAVILY RELIED ON HER EXPERTISE TO MAKE THE CASE FOR WHY THAT IS AN IMPORTANT INVESTMENT THROUGH THIS LEVY AND EXCITED TO SEE IT PLAY OUT. SOME OF THE OTHER THINGS WE ADVOCATED FOR ARE INCLUDED IN THE IMPLANTATION AND EVALUATION PLAN INCLUDE NEW AND EXCITING INVESTMENTS AROUND MAKING SURE WE ARE ADDRESSING STUDENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS IN BOTH THE PRE-K SYSTEM AND THE K-12 SYSTEM AND REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH MANY FOLKS AROUND HOW WE GET THAT MODEL JUST RIGHT SO THAT WE CAN BEST SERVE THOSE STUDENTS, THEIR NEEDS OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL SO THEY CAN SHOW UP AND BE READY TO LEARN. ALSO THAT WAS ANOTHER PRIORITY OF VY NGUYEN THAT MADE ITS WAY INTO THE LEVY AND THEN LASTLY OF COURSE MAKING SURE WE ARE BEING VERY CONSCIOUS AND DELIBERATE ABOUT ANY POTENTIAL UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES AS A RESULT OF ACCESS TO THE SEATTLE PROMISE PROGRAM AND HOW WE STRUCTURE THE PROGRAM. I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE A WONDERFUL AMAZING PROGRAM AND WE ARE GOING TO YIELD TREMENDOUS RESULTS AND BECAUSE OF THAT I WANT TO MAKE SURE THOSE STUDENTS WHO NEED IT THE MOST ARE THOSE BEING PRIORITIZED IN TERMS OF ACCESS TO THAT PROGRAM BECAUSE I KNOW HOW POWERFUL IT IS TO GO FROM HIGH SCHOOL TO COLLEGE SO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT.
