SO WE WILL MOVE ON NOW TO WHY WE ARE HERE TODAY, AND THAT IS FOR PUBLIC COMMENT

[Items 3 & 5]

ABOUT THE STRATEGIC PLAN, AND I AM GOING TO SEE IF MR. PAGE WOULD LIKE TO SAY A FEW WORDS ABOUT THAT BEFORE WE START.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH, CHAIRPERSON ANDERSON.

SO IN TERMS OF THE DRAFT STRATEGIC PLAN, WE ARE SO THRILLED TO BE RECEIVING THE FEEDBACK THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED TO DATE, AND HOLD THE MOST VALUE AND RESPECT IN RECEIVING THAT FEEDBACK AND USING IT TO INFORM -- FORMED A PLAN THAT WILL BE BROUGHT FORWARD TO THE BOARD ON THE 26TH.

OBVIOUSLY, EQUITY IS THE BACKBONE OF THIS PLAN, AS WELL AS THE OTHER PLAYERS THAT WE DISCUSSED IN THE BOARD PRESENTATION.

ONE THING WOULD LIKE TO DO TO REINFORCE IN THIS STRATEGIC PLAN IS FOR IT TO CONTINUE TO BE A LIVING AND BREATHING DOCUMENT, AND TO NOT BE A DOCUMENT THAT LAND ON THE SHELF, THAT IS SOMETHING WE MUST CONTINUALLY REFLECT ON THROUGHOUT THE LIMITATION PROGRESS SO WHILE WE WILL BE MOVING FORWARD THE PLAN FOR VOTE AND HOPEFUL ADOPTION ON JUNE 26, THAT IS BY NO MEANS THE END OF CONSTANT REFLECTION, ENVIRONMENT, AND ADJUSTMENT TO THE PLAN TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS PLAN IS TRULY SERVING OUR ORGANIZATION AND STAKEHOLDERS TO THE FULLEST EXTENT.

THIS IS GOING TO VERY MUCH BE AN ONGOING PROCESS THROUGHOUT THE LIFE OF THIS PLAN, BOTH THROUGH MONITORING OF THE PLAN AS WELL AS CONTINUED STAKEHOLDER INPUT AND FEEDBACK AS WE AS A ORGANIZATION REFLECT ON WHERE WE ARE AND ULTIMATELY WHERE WE NEED TO GO OVER THE COURSE OF THE NEXT FIVE YEARS.

THANK YOU.

>>> THANK YOU, MR. PAGE.

WE HAVE ONE SPEAKER SIGNED UP AND, AS USUAL, SPEAKERS HAVE THREE MINUTES TO MAKE THEIR COMMENTS, BUT THEY CAN ALSO SEND US ADDITIONAL COMMENTS THROUGH E-MAIL.

WE WILL ALSO, IF THERE ARE PEOPLE IN ATTENDANCE TODAY WOULD LIKE TO MAKE STATEMENTS, EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE NOT SIGNED UP AHEAD OF TIME, IF YOU CAN RAISE YOUR HAND AND DO THAT, YOU NEED TO GO AND CLICK ON PARTICIPANTS, AND AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN THERE IT CAN SAY RAISED HAND.

SO IF WE SEE SOME OF THOSE AFTER WE HAD OUR FIRST SPEAKER CAN THEN WE WILL ALSO CALL ON THOSE PEOPLE.

SO WE HAVE SET UP AHEAD OF TIME MS. MCLAUGHLIN.

SO IF WE CAN...

>> HELLO.

MS. MCLAUGHLIN, GO RIGHT AHEAD.

>> THANK YOU, THANK YOU, BOARD AND TECHNOLOGY.

I SPEAK TO THE CONCERNING THEORY OF ACTION ITEM NUMBER FOUR FOR BOUNDS LITERACY PROGRAM THAT FOLLOWED THIS LABEL IN MANY CASES IMPACT WILL PERPETUATE INEQUITIES THAT THIS PLAN IS HOPING TO ADDRESS.

BALANCED LITERACY AND THE CURRENT CURRICULA HIGHLIGHTED ON PAGE 13 IS THAT ADEQUATELY ADDRESSED DESK DID NOT ADDRESS WAS LEVEL SKILLS IN A SYSTEMATIC FASHION SPONSORED PROGRAMS ALSO LACKED BOTH KNOWLEDGE BUILDING AND A FOCUS ON VOCABULARY EXPANSION.

AND, IF YOU TAKE THE WORD OF THE AUTHOR AND JOURNALIST NATALIE.

[00:05:05]

>> EYEWITNESS: THEY PERPETUATE AND EXACERBATE OPPRESSION ABOUT LITERARY WITH THIS FOCUS ON MEETING CREATION BEFORE ALL ELSE MISSES A CRUCIAL PIECE THE TWO STUDENTS HOW TO ACTUALLY READ TO DECODE A WORD.

IT RELIES ON A VARIETY OF STRATEGIES THAT CLAIM TO BE EVIDENCE-BASED BUT ARE REFUTED BY DECADES OF SCIENCE.

PROFICIENT READERS DO NOT MEMORIZE WHOLE WORDS, LOOK AT JUST THE FIRST AND LAST LETTERS, OR LOOK AT PICTURES TO READ WORDS.

PROFICIENT READERS HAVE CRACKED THE ALPHABETIC CODE OF LANGUAGE AND PUSHED THE LIVE WORDS INTO THEIR BRAIN FOR INSTANT AND EFFORTLESS RECALL, NO PICTURE OR GUESSING REQUIRED.

ENGLISH IS A COMPLEX LANGUAGE REQUIRING SYSTEMATIC AND EXPLICIT INSTRUCTION.

FOR MOST REACH THIS LEVEL OF AUTHENTICITY, TEACHERS NEED THE KNOWLEDGE OF HOW THESE COMPLEX SYSTEMS WORK ALONG WITH -- TO CREATE EFFICIENT LEADERS WHO CAN TRULY ACHIEVE.

RATHER THAN WAITING TEACHERS ABSOLUTELY TIME A PROVINCIAL DEVELOPMENT AND ADHERING TO THE FAILED CURRICULUM, PROVIDE THEM THE KNOWLEDGE TO BE TRULY LIFE-CHANGING TO STUDENTS IN THEIR CLASSROOM, BUT THIS STARTED TO REFLECT ACPS APP TO COMMIT TO QUALITY AND HIGH-IMPACT TEACHING BY BALANCING LITERACY TO US MEANS EXPLICIT AND SYSTEMATIC INSTRUCTION ON WORD READING SKILLS COMBINED WITH RIGOROUS KNOWLEDGE BUILDING CURRICULUM THAT EXCITES, ENGAGE AND IGNITE THE PASSION TO READ.

THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU COMMERCE MCLAUGHLIN.

I WANTED TO MAKE SURE, DO WE HAVE YOUR STATEMENT IN WRITING? THAT WOULD REALLY BE GREAT TO HAVE TO SEND TO US AND THE BOARD OR JUST EXTENDED TO THE CLERK, EITHER ONE, AND SHE CAN GET IT OUT TO US.

>> MCLAUGHLIN, YOU CAN REPLY TO THE E-MAIL I SENT YOU.

>> SUPERCON THANKS.

NOW, SUSAN, I AM NOT SEEING ANY HANDS RAISED WHAT I THINK YOU CAN SEE MORE HAND THAN I CAN KEEP OH, SUMMER, THERE IS ONE RACE.

SHE IS TALKING.

THAT'S ONLY THE ONE.

THERE IS NOBODY ELSE BONG I WANT TO MAKE SURE WITH YOU THAT YOU DON'T SEE ANYONE ELSE, BECAUSE I DON'T SEE ANYONE ELSE.

>> SUSAN, SORRY, I DON'T SEE ANYONE ELSE.

>> OKAY, THEN WE ARE HAVING ONE OF THE BRIEFEST MEETINGS IN HISTORY BECAUSE WHILE WE WILL RECONVENE AT SEVEN.

SO IF THERE ARE PEOPLE LISTENING AND THEY WOULD LIKE TO MAKE SOME COMMENTS LATER WHERE WE CAN BEGIN AT SEVEN JUST TO DO THIS VERY SIMILAR FORMAT, WHERE PEOPLE CAN EITHER SET UP AHEAD OF TIME OR IF THEY DON'T GET TO THAT, THEN THEY CAN RAISE THEIR HAND DURING THE MEETING.

WHILE WE ARE STILL CONVENED.

ALL RIGHT SO THE NEXT THING I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE IS A MOTION TO ADJOURN.

>> I MOVE WE ADJOURNED THE MEETING.

>> MR. THREE SECONDS MS. LORBER'S MOTION AND I WILL CALL FOR A VOTE ON THEM.

CINDY ANDERSON, YES, VERONICA NOLAN.

>> YES.

RAMEE GENTRY.

>> YES.

>> MARGARET LORBER.

>> YES.

>> CHRISTOPHER SUAREZ.

>> YEAH.

>> HEATHER THORNTON IS ABSENT.

>> MICHELLE RIEF.

>> YES.
