Prior to Mr. Theodore giving an updated presentation on the potential boundary changes, Ms. Kneessy requested to give the Board Members and community an additional option to consider.

Ms. Kneessy suggested a three pronged approach instead of the proposals that Mr. Theodore will be sharing with the Board.

1. Two-year transportation promise to our Choice Schools.  Move more students voluntarily from our high population schools to our low population schools. Gave examples.

2. Spend the next two years of beefing up the confirmation of addresses at our schools.  This will ensure that only students that are eligible to attend are in the school that they should be attending.  She said that we should add a hot line where parents could call to report students that are not within the attendance boundary so that the district could follow up on the name of the student.

3. Redistrict the schools that are severely over 100 percent, like the Meadowlanes.

Ms. Kneessy suggested that we follow this three pronged approach for two years and if we don't get the results, then the Board will have to do a force-able redistricting, probably eliminate some of our choice offerings, and really weed things down.

Mr. Theodore went through the nine proposals (as attached) for the redistricting and closing of schools.

Dr. Murray thanked Mr. Theodore for his detailed presentation.

Ms. Henderson suggested that the Board get some of these off the table. She began her discussion with Proposal #3 Reduce Enrollment at Kennedy Middle School. Ms. Henderson suggested taking the closing of Clearlake Middle School - Proposal #10 off the table.

Board Members: Karen Henderson, Andy Ziegler, Amy Kneessy, and Dr. Barbara Murray agreed to have Clearlake taken off the table for closing.  Dr. Krupp would like to keep Clearlake Middle School on the proposal for closing.

Chairman Dr. Murray stated to Dr. Binggeli that his direction is to take Proposal #10 - Clearlake off the table for closing.

Ms. Kneessy requested to take Proposal #14 - Sea Park Elementary off the table for closing.  She gave several reasons as to why it did not make sense at this time to close Sea Park which included the FISH data which does not support the closing at this time.  Ms. Kneessy stated that she would also like to take moving the beach side boundaries needs to come off the table as well because some of the lines do not make sense.

Board Members: Karen Henderson, Dr. Michael Krupp,  Dr. Barbara Murray, Amy Kneessy, and Andy Ziegler, agreed to have Sea Park taken off the table for closing.

Dr. Binggeli stated that he was given specific instructions, by the Board, to redistrict our schools to get to 100 percent capacity and bring forward potential schools for school closure. He also stated what he was hearing is that the Board will be very liberal for parents wanting choice.

Chairman Dr. Barbara Murray stated that when the Board entered into redistricting she saw that philosophically being founded as three things.

1. Schools that were grossly over-capacity needed to be reduced.
2. Balancing schools that were under-capacity that were in danger of losing programs.
3. Lastly, after all that was said and done, and only if the data showed that we had the ability to close schools and absorb those populations in adjacent schools so we disrupted the fewest number of students, programs and communities.  Closing schools should have never been the driving force of this redistricting.

Dr. Murray addressed that this Board wants to allow choice but not when schools are way over capacity where we have other issues that out way the choice.

Dr. Binggeli explained to the community where the school district is as it relates to our Capital Funds vs. Debt.

Chairman Dr. Murray stated to Dr. Binggeli that his direction is to take Proposal #14 - Sea Park off the table for closing.

Ms. Henderson requested to take off Proposal #6 - Convert Roosevelt, off the table since we need to deal with the students that are out-of-area to Cocoa Beach Jr./Sr. High School first.  She mentioned that the only reason that these proposals are being considered was to have an alternative to reduce the numbers at Cocoa Beach.

Board Members: Karen Henderson, Amy Kneessy, Dr. Barbara Murray, Andy Ziegler, and Dr. Krupp agreed to have Proposal #6 - Convert Roosevelt off the table.

Dr. Murray would like to revisit Proposal #2 - Reduce Enrollment at Cocoa Beach Jr./Sr. High School until the Board can get more accurate data.

Ms. Henderson brought up the possible elimination of sibling preference at the choice schools (prefaced by not doing it for this school year).  She would like to look into the fairness of sibling preference. The Board was in total agreement.

Mr. Ziegler brought up the concern about the IB programme at Freedom 7.  He questioned whether the IB programme should be at Roosevelt instead of Freedom 7 because Freedom 7 is a choice school with a lottery to attend.

Ms. Kneessy requested discussion on corridor bussing at the December 13, 2011 School Board Meeting.

Attachment: Supervisor of Elections Letter.pdf

Ms. Kneessy pulled this item to question Dane Theodore, Assistant Superintendent of Facility Services, on the redistricting changes made by the Supervisor of Elections.

Ms. Kneessy stated that she could not find written anywhere, in Board Policy or Statute, how it is determine how a Board Members get assigned a particular school.  She stated that her concern is Sunrise Elementary because it is assigned to Mr. Ziegler but 95% of the voting families are in her district.

Harold Bistline, School Board Attorney, stated that the boundaries are drawn by the Board, they have to be proportionate, it is based on population, and it has to be within a certain range. He stated that you have to cooperate with the Supervisor of Elections and not split precincts.

Mr. Theodore explained the minor changes that were made by the Supervisor of Elections and how it effected the School Boards redistricting.

Dr. Murray commented that she and Dr. Krupp have a similar situation with Fairglen. She stated that they looking into that and there was no way to resolve it.

Mr. Bistline stated that he and Dane would look into the mentioned concerns but does not think there will be a resolution to these concerns.

Mr. Ziegler stated that he is fine with Ms. Kneessy making Sunrise within her realm.

Mr. Bistline stated that this will potentially create a domino effect but they will look into the concerns.
