14. Student Academic Performance Results
Attachment: Board Meeting - Student Achievement 2013-14 - September 23, 2014.pdf
Minutes: 

Dr. Binggeli provided the Board and viewing audience an update on Brevard's student academic results. He began by saying that there are two things that we all agree on:  There have to be ways to measure success in providing great schools and great learning opportunities and success for our students. He said further that no one measure, certainly not one test, should be the exclusive way we do that.

----------------------------------------------
Chairman Henderson said that although it was not part of the published agenda, she would like for Dr. Binggeli to provide the Board and the community some details on the process that will be utilized to identify the members of the Independent Oversight Committee in the event the referendum for the half-cent sales surtax passes.

Dr. Binggeli explained that the Independent Oversight Committee is in the ballot language. He said that a short application will be available through the District website for any Brevard citizen to fill out and send in to an auditing firm that doesn't do business with Brevard that will agree to just gather and hold those applications. 

He said that we will be asking parent leaders, north, central and south area business leaders and representatives from the capital outlay commit to form a selection committee.  These individuals will form a selection committee to select between 7 and 11 individuals from the application pool. Their task will be to get a good geographic and stakeholder cross section to serve.

Finally, a charter establishing the oversight powers, duties and responsibilities will be brought to the Board, for approval so the process can be set in motion if the community supports the sales surtax initiative.

Motion Minutes: 

Mr. Ziegler had many questions regarding Solstice Benefits, Inc. He said that he felt that he needed those questions answered before he was able to approve.  He made a motion to postpone approving this item until the October 14, 2014 meeting so he could get some more information. 

The Board asked questions of staff.  Mr. Langdorf provided clarifications and Chris Woertz from Willis and Associates also provided information and responded to questions.  The Board asked what the ramifications would be if the RFP was not approved until the October 14, 2014 Board meeting.  Mr. Landorf said that Open Enrollment for benefits will begin on October 14, 2014 so it would end the process because they could not award the RFP based on the Board's vote.

Mr. Ziegler expressed disdain about not having the RFP until the last minute thereby not giving the Board ample time to evaluate. 

The motion died for lack of a second.



Motions:
Postpone Item g - RFP #15-P-002-KR - Group Dental Insurance - Employee Benefits & Special Programs until October 6, 2014 before Board Workshop- FAIL

Motion Minutes: 

Carlos Ferrara from Solstice answered questions from the Board.

Ms. Kneessy asked Dr. Binggeli why a contract of this magnitude was put off until the last minute.  Dr. Binggeli deferred to Ms. Pace.

Ms. Pace explained that there were two issues with the process that caused this delay:  one was that they worked with the current provider to try to negotiate consistent rates and an increase that would not be prohibitive to our costs.  When they realized that was not going to be possible, they sent it out to RFP which is following the direction of the Board to make sure we are being competitive; the second piece is per the Board's direction to change the way we do open enrollment and offer individual counseling for employees during open enrollment In order to do this, open enrollment had to be moved up by two weeks to allow a full month to complete the process instead of the normal two weeks.

Ms. Pace added that all three employee groups were represented on the RFP committee.

Ms. Henderson said that it was brought to her attention that they could have a short meeting before the October 6, 2014 Board Workshop. 

Mr. Ziegler indicated that was acceptable.  

There was still discussion about whether or not it would allow sufficient time for employees to get information.

K. Board Member Reports/Discussion Points
42. Board Member Reports

Minutes: 

Ms. Henderson asked that Board members include any Board assigned tasks as part of the Board member reports section.

Ms. Kneessy began by asking to make sure that we did not allow someone other than the person wishing to address the Board sign in. In regards to comments made by one of the public speakers, Ms. Kneessy wanted to clarify that she never said that  she spoke with an individual from the legislature; she said that it was discussed at the FSBA directors meeting.  She said there are minutes available to support this.

Mr. Ziegler urged any employees who will have the new vendor to please let Compensation and Benefits know of any overbilling. Mr. Ziegler also spoke in regards to public comments indicating that Board members should have to take a test. He said that all of the  members currently serving on the Board possess the Certified Board Members distinction.  Mr. Ziegler also wanted to thank Opt-Out Brevard.

Dr. Krupp also wanted to thank Opt-Out Brevard and mentioned the resolutions adopted by Lee and Palm Beach County. He said that Dr. Binggeli and other district superintendents will be discussing some of these concerns at their upcoming meeting. He said the only way it appears that any change can take place is for parents to put pressure on the legislature to change statute. He read a section of the resolution from Palm Beach County.

Dr. Murray commented that the public must be on the front line. She related that  15 or more years ago, a superintendent did stand up forecefully to the legislature and funding was withheld. She said that it is not because the School Board of Brevard does not have the courage to speak, but it must be done strategically so as not to cause harm to our district and its students. She stressed that it is important for the public to bring this forward.

Ms. Henderson told the public that this is an opportunity for everyone to come together to make a difference for our kids and we should not squander this chance.

Ms. Henderson told the Board that it was time to revisit the school closure list. She asked, as discussed at a previous meeting, if they wanted Mr. Theodore to bring information to them at the next Board meeting to be prepared in the event that the half-cent sales tax referendum fails. After some discussion, it was determined to have Mr. Theodore bring back geographic areas that may contain schools possible for closure.  The list should contain the names of the schools within the geographic area.

Ms. Henderson also informed the Board that it was time to choose an FSBA Legislative Committee member.  As Ms. Henderson has already served in this capacity, it was the consensus of the Board to have her continue.

Ms. Henderson asked the Board if they were interested in having a Strategic Plan Workshop on October 14, 2014.  The Board wanted to wait until the new Board members began and also wait on necessary information.

Ms. Henderson attended Brevard Convening Empowering Effective Teaching and expressed her delight.
