7:49 am
was a team operation we see those nice beautiful buildings that is the people that make it happen and mr. geology golden has been a pleasure to see the hidden the scenes needed to complete the building and happier time i can report that the dollars expended have been according to the boards specifications and everything is well executed and we're all enjoying the beauty of what this district has provided for all the people thank you. >> and he will add as the auditor that i'm the one that gets to look at the expenditures and conclude and basically nancy was saying we make sure i mean of primary concern the amounts are in line with what the voter
7:50 am
approved the bond election and if you read the reports there's two separate reports one for the 2006 and one for the 2011 a significant amount of expenditures that are looked at physically the orders of i forget the number but in the range of 5 hundred separate expenditures because we look at payroll and all the expenditures that have been passed through the bond funds and we as david alluded to not in any finding and so i want to add that we had met with the oversight committee and they approved the are draft reports and met before the audit commence to make sure the scope of the audits is in line with their expectations so
7:51 am
that has gone out without any hassle so good clean reports. >> yes. thank you, mr. president i also before we go any further i want to give my congratulations to our chief officer mr. golden his credible team and the bonds oversight committee across the country is not uncommon to find bond programs in trouble and especially we have another year with zero finding hates a huge testament to the work that mr. golden does and the oversight committee on behalf of the district our thanks and congratulations for doing a good job and briefly is that san francisco's voters deserve a
7:52 am
huge congratulations that the schools you saw this evening seismicallyly fit and ada compliant and absolutely beautiful that are not cookie cutter schools they have character and the character of san francisco would not be possible were it not for the support of ballot box so on behalf of the 47 thousand students and staff that do their work thank you to the voters of san francisco for your support of bonds programs thank you parapet i wanted to echo that sentiment and say thank you to the voters of is 0 san francisco and the continued support for our schools and also the people i think who helped also pass this bond which we do have to have the stated bond but mr. golden people can't truly
7:53 am
appreciate all the work into entrants unless you see the construction sites and see schools like jose ortega being completely, completely almost rebuilt i did a walk through couldn't imagine and it is spectacular it is a school worthy of our students and it is absolutely beautiful so also, because of finding are to pristine i think this district has not always had some finding but we - i think that also and that is all the way back but i just want to say that builds and face and trusts in the voters they can trust us we're good stewarts of their money thank
7:54 am
you very much. >> commission. >> thank you really i just want to echo the comments of others have made it is so wonderful to see this beautiful building i know our students get to go and grateful to you, mr. gotten for all the work you and your team did and very, very grateful to the bent over backwards oversight committee bylaw without you you know maybe people wouldn't trust. >> much we're squeaky clean thank you for the hours your committee puts in i'm proud to be part of this and thank you, again mr. golden thank you for all you do. >> congratulate and recognize mr. golden very dedicated team this kind of work didn't happen needless you give one and 10 percent and it is wonderful to see nancy a long time principal
7:55 am
at rooftop thank you for continuing to add to the district and, of course, our auditor i want to invite the members of the jury members of the public to see our schools when was the last time folks stepped into our schools i remember going to wall even beggar and i saw it transformers transformed to be this amazing highly. >> thank you to mr. golden and the committee and well, i just want to say from the prospective of someone i've been here a long time they've been wonderful to have people dedicating their lives to the school district and make the opportunity to be involved i
7:56 am
want to congratulate everyone on the audit and it really is extraordinary record but we know that this in recent years because of recession we were getting more out of the bond measures that is a testament to the kind of professionalism and exercise of the people those promotions would have cost more and are costing us more but if it is possible i want to know how difficult to be i don't want to make a huge benchmark so we can know which projects how much we saved and what we did with that money it is important we can't expect to have that kind of on experience for the future but with the future bonds we're
7:57 am
going to do the estimates for the costs are more adequate it is kind of i mean it's been for many people very unfortunate the economic downturn it was unfortunate but the aspects of what we got out of construction money is a benefit to the students the present and future and if we can do that in a relative simple way i saw the audits at the they on tell you what is the finance reports that is wonderful but didn't give us - i know we gotten some of this anecdotal you said this project was under budget we got to do this but generally that bond program. >> so some of what want is
7:58 am
easy and some complicated the 2006 bonds period which was the period of sort of crash of the world as we know it in some ways we were getting projects bidding grols under what we estimate he remember going back and literally doing all the work that we wanted to do plus more and when it was offer we went back to the schools and did ever more and it was good the most of the 2011 bond the reverse has been true the economic is incredibly strong our projects are costing 25 and thirty percent more we've adopted a new philosophy we like the idea and the other bonds we intoxicate a school and did the project right as opposed to the 2003 bond we focused an ada fire
7:59 am
safety and the lopez lawsuit we like walking off the school site and did 90 are 95 percent of the work and not come back 5 or 10 years later so if you look at our budget in the 2011 bond you'll see that almost ever project is greatly expand over what we first started the bond mostly we have made the decision to get rid of of mod last year's in the classroom and transformer the campuses the end result some of the projects the 2011 bonds were in fact slide to the next bonds because we'll won out run out the of of money so i can give you some of that but we're sort of moving escape caesar and so many of the schools are problematic changes from the
8:00 am
time we start to get to the project i'll do any best. >> that would be great. >> we all are going to do campaign for the bonds including the committee i will be - we'll need for familiar so we have assurance and confidence tell the members of the public to support sews their extraordin y extraordinaryly generous but say disadvantaged what you said in 2006, we is a new standard to the schools interests an extraordinary examples and some of the projects will move to the in relation bonds and their costing us this much, etc. that would be perfect. >> commissioner, i have a
8:01 am
quick question i'm curious how many mod last year's we have how many campuses modulars. >> all the modulars we rent are gone only those that we own and first and foremost those we're not getting rid of because as long as tare serviceable but the long term strategy eventually will be replace the modulars but i haven't look at that. >> i myself want to thank you, supervisors for putting this together i saw i know that works and the access students i myself as a senior will not witness but i know many will enjoy the new
8:02 am
guy. i unfortunately don't like the room but i look forward to seeing coming back and seeing and hearing how they enjoy it yes, ma'am the classroom so thank you. >> commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell. >> thank you a sweat shirt same thing so every school my kid went to got renovated after we left we didn't get to see all the beauty this is exist it is just a moment for us to reflect we've seen you know in the course stories of schools that don't have proper heating and haven't been painted in years and years and years and challenges of the other district we're blessed to have the support that the voters provided i also want to appreciate the
8:03 am
sustainable projects the schools whether greeting projects or attachment and those great i think we go to some of the schools and amphitheaters that are created to do outdoor teaching that is beautiful i recognize that doing projects has an opportunity been easy and tom has been a god sent and the management of so much work that your staff and outline i all the folks are been tremendous so that self-go unnoticed and want to thank you for you will have that it is interesting between 2008 and 2012 when not a lot was going on in the city we were the only game in town and i think that speaks volumes to some of the opportunities we've provided in terms of
8:04 am
employment and you know keeping food on the table for many of the folks that were the construction business dried-up so again really grateful we had the opportunity to do that and being able to keep hymie- i mean when things are dry we're going and getting a great deal and enabled us to think about the contingency dollars and i think that you were really smart how those dollars were spent we were able to put those and latest think that this what the schools mean not only in terms of the great learning investment bow the pride our kids and teachers and names have for the schools to go to a beautiful green
8:05 am
school and a healthy learning environment with with regulated heat it means a lot for a teacher it's extremely important to be in a nice environment with closet space and new technology and ways not walls at least crazy pods we used to have and so it really i think speaks volumes to the priorities at least we put forward for the school district and you've run is critical well, thank you for continuing to keep us on point and making sure that as we get audited there are things that we need to be concerned about and let's stay clean we have more to follow. >> stay clean all right. thank you we appreciate that and

8:57 am
exceptional and been the result of a couple of committed elements one the school district you know there are people that have on this board seen us through difficult times and certainly a lot of people the district that are supportive of the san diego city council in many ways i want to recognize that commitment that's why i'm happy to come and open to our feedback and questions and ideas also been the commitment of. >> huge number of listeners supporters over the last few decades so as this is such a big anniversary and in fact, 91 my tenth report believe it or not it is true i hope you'll tell you this me as and make a higher presentation fiscal year on i see the formula it sustained the station and i even where it is a
8:58 am
potential where growth lies in 3 elements innovation, developing new talent and finally partnering with the community i'll start with innovation when k l a w went on the air in 1941 and the san francisco unified school district were students westbound license to this radio station there's a little bit of things we will be broadcast on k l a w it is cool to see that at the time fm was initiative technology people didn't dr. fm radios in our houses it was was r.c. a was at the world's fair in 1939 demonstrating they're going technology that k l a y came to be forward looking teachers
8:59 am
realizing the opportunities that the signal and the broadcast equipment that r.c. a willing to coat oh, this is an opportunity to you teach students in the 1941 they launched what was then one of the first fm stations on the west coast the first if san francisco what is now the oldest fm station west of the mississippi it is historic we should note that was at the forefront when it began and continues to innovative the 70s we moved our broadcast tower our transmitser but broadcasting to twin peaks that gridlock expanded the number of people that heard the station and k l a w went from educational to a public radio station for outdoor looking and
9:00 am
thinking about what will draw listeners and the first station in san francisco to bring in pr programming became the west coast station of record and still are and so those are old log these interest was change in k l a w was part of change now public radio everything is talking about what is happening in pod cast like cereal if you're trying to ask whether the pod cast bathroom status it start with the 9 percent i think visual we enhance and k l a w in 2011 start with a partnership with the architects of san francisco and the station where we said we want to work on programs of design and
9:01 am
fortunately, we picked a fabulous person that romanced romanced it is important to reach ought to left turns or listeners by a pod cast in 2011 it is unusual thinking but k l a w they started at k l a w we wanted to connect this a design program with someone that is talented now the program mass been downloaded many time how to find a pod cast they call roman november in the bay area that wants to create something new want to do that they come to us we recognition how to give talented people room to work and try new things that is one of the reasons why deborah you know
9:02 am
short lived a cable short lived program that is based on in the bayview but someone that has national recognize on cnn but came here he knew the work we was like i want to starts something new with w or k l a w we are implementing a show right now is live radio and social media program it is not like anything else in radio and not in public radio we think while it addresses the kind of things that public radio audience are interested in we did a seethe about the drought. >> talked about radium in hollywood and the black lives matter on the bay bridge a changing the printouts around gender identity they're in the midst of what people are talking
9:03 am
about but the voices he brings into that makes it entertaining and a great deal of fun so i'm very excited and a opportunities to reach out to listeners but who we haven't address and a abusive is not this thursday but the swedish-american hall if our interested i'll do any best to hook you up the kind of things to make the initiative programs go to new places in public arrow that then i'll have to find next innovation it was primarily a training facility 3 decades of k l a w the first one was train the when the station started that was 1941 september of 1941
9:04 am
we went on the air and world war ii began a huge need for radio operators and many of the men that were operators in the pacific were trained to k l a and a group of broadcasting women that were taking over the jobs that those civilian men were leaving and important work and to this day we're not you primarily a training station teaching people skills developing new talents is part of what we do over the last seven years i should say the journalist they give an award to an outstanding jouvent and 3 of the awards were given to reporter at k l a w it is angela
9:05 am
johnson that one, the award last year but an example we create the kind of we bring forward talented people and give them a place to start that gives back to the community and recognized by professionals the field we also as you know have recorded to you previously we say program we kind of formalized the train so we have a program that is open to applications from the communities during the end of the spring we bring in a new class every cement for an audio academy developing new voices and connections the community in audio jouchlt and audio production those are the class of 2016 i wish the quality of my photo were better but folks that are coming in and learning the
9:06 am
craft and also creating great radio their reports are now being heard on our local news magazine and a number of people that are graduates of previous years are not on to other work it is valuable i'll point you to if you go to you tunes on the pod cast called one that is the intersection that is the pod cast pursued by david bay area his idea was talk about the change in the bay area into one corner in san francisco and other city to say what is going on what's the changes when he was the audio complained that was may i have a motion getting people to talk about and hoe humorous interpreting changes he since graduated from the audio
9:07 am
technically and grant funding to get this an ongoing series and the current episode series he's do is all about not that far away from golden gate i recognize you go if you're someone that stribz and interested what happens in the bay area and the work out of k l a w is a great example why it is important we have the space for people to develop 9 tlaentsz that a community based radio station where stories will get told not employed but paying attention to people that might not be paid attention to go deeper so i've talked about innovation i've talked about developing new talents next community partnerships what k l a w why i
9:08 am
took over as general manager my predecessor left me with a few pieces of wisdom always doing things in a partnership if you possible can figure out people that bring resources to the work you do as you develop them our most fundamental partnership is the school district thank you to the people on this board and in this district who have stood by us in difficult times and thinks that we are unique in the school district and respect the way we operate and also understand the value of that kind of operation investigating dependence we need to connect with the listeners i have to say i've talked with other general manager of stations at other school districts and other college
9:09 am
places the relationship with k l a w a level of sophistication to run a media institution that is unusual so thank you, very much for that. >> and he also i just want to thank a few specific people we count on rita has been great to work with over the past year a very good relationship with joe ross are people i'm like we have a positive step and built only this thank you, rita our budget analyst and paulette the fiscal year services and someone we need to focus on paulette is there and sue thank you for your help and responsiveness and casey and angie from the legal department and h.r. when there are times i really

9:12 am
the arts commission talked to us doing work request the bayview and highlight positive stories people making changes in positive ways we partnered to produced radio stories with profiles of people doing great work the community the sites and sounds of bayview the opera house we have live performance to, or go with the stuff on-stage and come together and gather a great success did it again in 2015 and we came out of that feeling two things we have a model we want to build on and second we wanted to highlight creative arts and performers not given coverage in the arts or the bayview so we went to the california arts consul u council to take the sielths and sounds
9:13 am
of bayview to a new area like oakland we have a long-standing partnerships are a public record and second to with develop a weekly radio feature that brings under community based arts and talk about others art things going on the scenes of the bayview but point to a great art exhibit an interesting performance or a installation at the gallery he noticed this guy does amazing work every morning you'll hear that the interviews we take with an artist a local artist we're including the music and others sounds it makes it very accessible broadcast so i guessed i'm getting borrowing the council said, yes we're producing this feature and have pardoned participated with a group that is related to this
9:14 am
that does training with reporters and community based retirees and teaching the audio skills about aren't from that communities and the cross magazine so live event we'll do we think we can take this to other places did ideas start with a partnership and idea and people the admitted and see what works and how you can do that that is the kind of work i get excited and this is our host of sight and sounds with lyrics bone offers here for one sight and sounds statement so that's one the other one i want to talk about people that listen to other cross friends they having may have heard on the san quentin in 2013 we partnered
9:15 am
with some men inside of san quentin interested in hike specific thai or there's was a san quentin news they wanted to do something audio your news department made a connection and started partnership with prisoners that wanted to do stories inside the prison and bring them to a journalist lyric sound and give them we meet every month producers that go out and we're out interest to do training and development with the folks i've liked the project i always liked i think i have you know have a curiosity what is lifelike for people in what seems a foundational situation
9:16 am
but new december we got invited a group if k l w got niefld to an event by a pod cast for folks that were to k l a w and did a live story at the chapel okay stories i'm so glad we're here drawing that out but kind of realized how powerful these prisoners are how important they are echt there's one not just like we're doing them a favor no their stories are important i so and came away learn a lot and having a sense of those are members of our community and for people that have connections for people in prison they understand that in right now but those
9:17 am
stories don't necessarily understand and particularly exist tends all the men were standing up here were the men of the society for northern california san quentin chapter and about half of the folks on the san quentin that was broadcast on k l a w i was grateful to be able to participate and they're talking our pod cast and we will be in consultation with them. >> finally we want to talk about the partnership that is very defuse that is of course, with the since the early 90s, the school district has not provided cash support but it is very valuable in kind services but station raise hits on budget
9:18 am
and operating budget and about 72 percent at that time comes from listeners the balance from grant funding and i'm glad to say the individual giving revenue support from listeners is a positive trespassed here as you can see so the blue is the first half of the year and the red the second half of the year if you look at you see that blue bar for this year is this is what we raised from the first part we've not raised at the station listeners are really, really incredible and we certainly have done work to communicate with the listeners this is the value we try to communicate like program that i passed out to you to get a difference idea but the response has been positive you'll see that there and because of that positive
9:19 am
trend our unrestricted net assets i'm sure that rita and my auditor will not agree but arisen from under one hundred thousand dollars focusing 10 to a comfortable place a little bit over $600,000 the past school year so that's very positive public school i have to tell you next year when i come to report to you focusing 16 bar will certainly i leave room for anyone that wants to congressman that reality but it is most likely it number will be smaller i've mentioned we're broadcasting from the portals this is rare i have to rip up our station we're taking advantage to replace the row
9:20 am
decor of over broadcasting all the reports we report on are broadcast so when a caller calls in maybe we'll - so we've budgeted against some of that cash reserve to replace the heart of that while we're the process or i'd like to take the opportunity that over and resdoich our studios so we can actually do more production liquor the only there was a lot of studio time if you wanted to book studio time no problem now not the case we're doing a lot more production but we're going to doy design it will let us produce more in the same space and to be able to accommodate live performance for the musicians to have a place they're welcome and not kind of get into a corner and make their
9:21 am
live music it will be nice to musicians as well thank you not a 10 thousand view but thank you very much for your thank you for your time and consideration and sports over time i well questions and well ideas in a moment over and over subsequence to the meeting and yes. >> thank you for your presentation for your congratulations on our 10 years as well i know this the early but we're glad we're not bring you here super late. >> commission. >> thank you for your report i said to tell everybody hopefully tons of folks listening and everyone florida the room i made a donation to k l w a thank you in person. >> you can do it online i really think this is something i
9:22 am
need to side every year and not done i appreciate that so, now i really just want to commends you on the great work the contracts are great i'm excited actually to hear the show i'm a big fan is great, thank you. >> ms. fewer. >> yes. great this was great a turn around sort of situation it is great to see everything and it is with true that the board has great confront in you so urge this to be do bridge so glad we continues the great w k work. >> thank you. i want to thank you. you'll your great work and being here this is a huge turn around
9:23 am
and fantastic so i'm proud of the district that we stick with k l a w with past minds to get to a point like this till when we were not in very good financial six we ourselves noofltd in k l a w in legal services and guaranteeing something that was a risk didn't want us to do so and i wanted to thank you and the staff and everybody that works with the station and put so much into that i particularly time to mention i maybe have the past but worth saying the listeners of w are k l a w a are supportive of the station demonstrated all the time really
9:24 am
whatever direction you have request k l a w it is some of it is traditionally and many are here on the radio have been listeners and supporters for decades but a lot has to do with our mettle why people are excited and analysis and supporters of station we want to say that we did get through tough times but many when you saw the history of many public stations in america were the hands of public school districts and public universities but a lot of them start out in school district district do you know where are we the only ones left? very few a lot of people say that is extraordinary we have this asset and last thing i want
9:25 am
to say when you - one of the huge engages do us that makes our schools more successful to people particularly because many of the you know people don't live in san francisco and are would be they can now stream them live on the computer but people are it in habit of listening i don't know about you mrvrnt but i talk to others around the bayview and they said oh, i listen to you on the radio don't he get enough on your own it is a treasure thank you for nurturing this thank you >> ms. mendoza-mcdonnell. >> it is a great highlight of
9:26 am
the updates i really appreciate all the enough of them you know for somebody that licenses to the station all the time in the car my kids are young adults are left-hand side to the station in the car don't change it they turn it up all sorts of great programming and want to make sure you can i'm occurs if any of the change in shifting and technology have effected your programming at all or enhances it and then i've been curious how you work with or compete against k p dr what that looks like. >> when you say just help methinks when our thinking of technology change for what we do
9:27 am
i mean, i'll start talking and you tell you i think we're going introduce a different huge change how people listen i think that people are recognizing the value of audio media right now it is really you think predicted there a lot big money comping both that space realizing that's why you see people that are radio producers that is no question that that is great place to sell advertising and we're actually in people's lives they will pop-in that pod cast and do it, it is simply to side we're definitely thinking of i mean - i think there is a reason they're taking the talent from public radio that's it where we have great story
9:28 am
tellers to continue to figure out the freelance we're having conversation saying okay we have those kind of pod casts we've developed and programs the air that might do well, there and pod casts pretty much everything without music issues we put the form of pod cast but number one how we think about marketing to people to listen to them and forensic m pr has a m pr one that is collect it auto and choose k l a w as our local station respect so it will give you a stream of stuff if you don't like it you can press next story oh, this is interesting so we're looking at we have the
9:29 am
person ahead of design on m pr one and talking about how things are and how we get our stuff customized we're thinking how we stay in front of people when the fm dial is not where people are and we managed to hold our listening folks steady we know that change is coming so part of it i mean to be honest open deduction go on in the station how to work with producers that might time to create more pod casts and things out to the people yeah yes keep our broadcasting a angle excellent radio station people are still license in realtime on the fm signal or online but we know we're
9:30 am
thinking about it i can't say we have to tackle by some things there is a heck of a lot of stuff people pick through so there is a materially role what you discover here is really, really good stuff you know, i mean you go to i tunes how options and month listeners are consider 60 different pod casts offering politics so we can also play that role. >> and times if there is something you guys are playing i'm not interested in i'll listen to another station but overtime that station is playing the same thing thing. >> so our station we as an
9:31 am
individual connection we see ourselves and grassroots willing to take risks we also and one of the things that distinguished our pod casting we do more headlines and we try and you know morning addition you'll hear pr flag someplace it not - it is hard not to fill that avoid but try to have things you know a lot of things you'll find over k l a w but local stations we pay attention but basically think that is good to be into two newspapers. >> great congratulations you did a fantastic job i was on the board and really great to see
9:32 am
what you do and continue to listen to you thank you. >> dr. murase. >> thank you years ago you were mere before us with the missouri joe asking for a line of credit i really remember that because a lot of mail from folks saying what are we are doing we're facing layoffs and investing in a radio station but this board supported that line of credit you've really turpitudes so many things around at the station i tomato congratulate. >> and call out that discussions we suggested there is more opportunities for student combfrment at the station because your housed at the school site ways to bring the students into the station you took that to heart and started a program that really
9:33 am
allows tour students to benefit from the fact we own and operate a radio station thank you and think of ways to bring students into the stations. >> to let you know we're we've discussed before you know we're understand providing a good experience for high school students as far as attachments and it takes finger friends summer enterprisers we have a dedicated staff member that's what they're doing nostril tagging long and making copies we understand a curriculum around it i want you to know that i've been talk we have a long-standing editorial relationship with youth radio but talking about how we might try to bring youth radio curriculum stuff into san
9:34 am
francisco and know perhaps users burton go next door to k radio we're thinking you how to get the resources to make that possible and these people know how to do this and it is funny for something youth radio this is i think of a national presence you hear the reports on p pr and have this kind of standing but the fact they've not done a lot in san francisco their city of oakland and they'll anytime a little bit parochial crossing the bridge but that's it. >> thank you good to see you. >> appreciate. >> consent calendar resolutions we have none tonight
