9:11 am
they want it it to follow their work schedule their considerations for that even though that makes a logical success to take on the holiday into a monday pay not interrupt a week parents that work it causes nor of a destruction where it is not new jersey with their schedule. >> i completely agree it didn't get off veterans day but i said i'd ask so i the. >> commissioner wynns. >> i'd like to know i appreciate that and i the thing that's changed the federal government has changed in including veterans day into one of the national holidays they

9:13 am
right things i've explained it so it's important i appreciate that and i'd like to continue to maybe in a more organized way get some you know kind of reporting open that how we're doing but not only i appreciate so much our employees are doing better on showing up on the days before and after the holidays and also like to know something about student attendance this is it is near a holiday or only one holiday and actually maybe generally about trends in at the scene would be appropriate in this context so thank you. >> commissioner mendoza-mcdonnell. >> thank you i want to say that veterans day is indeed of 11 it moved so a 3
9:14 am

9:15 am
cancelled so perhaps we can move to the idea when it becomes clear that we will win again. >> can i answer that i think it's important for people to understand it's not the city that make the decision to players have 48 after winning the game before in their contract ends so they don't have to come back the parades have to happen within to days if the plan is on wednesday, you know, tuesday we'll have it on thursday or wednesday we'll have it on friday so that was just the way that it is we can't plan for it to be 5 days later or on a weekend that's not happening. >> thank you any other comments
9:16 am
from the board seeing none okay no public comment on that. >> the next time we win the world series. >> i see none signed up but you're so enlightening every time you come to speak i'll permit it press the bottom please. mr. temple ton. >> for the last ten years your school calendar as you omitted and we made an issue of it back in 2005 it hadn't changed yet so - yes. >> (inaudible). >> those are just the holidays. >> but the structural calendar is extremely important for the teachers to look at things to do
9:17 am
it is generally throughout the state generally in the structural calendar so it was just specifically taken out when acronym was here but you know, i think it would be an important move in light of what else you've done tonight to put to into calendar. >> now i believe we're ready for a roll call vote. >> mr. haney on the structural calendar thank you. >> ms. maufass ms. mendoza-mcdonnell dr. murase and ms. norton and minnesota and president fewer. >> 6 i's. >> thank you very much now we're on the subject of
9:18 am
we're taking off (laughter) that was an experience. >> so, now on the subject of review and adaptation of annual and 5 year report relating to the collection of the fees thank you gentlemen for waiting so long may i have a motion and second please. thank you very much any may i have a reading of the recommendation by mr. david golden. >> good evening supreme court and president fewer i'm the chief facility officer one of the most fun parts of year apologize to read the requested action and give you a background it's late we're tired and the requested action is that the board of education of the
9:19 am
san francisco unified school district review and adapt the developer impact fee and annual fee reports for the fiscal year ending and the attached report dated 2014 related to the collection and expertise expenditure of developer fees perpetrate by a consistent with expertise with such reports and mr. laura principle of the linger group is sitting to my right just brief background developer impact fees are possible to be collected by succulence throughout the state of california under the government code they compete conditions each school district prepare a study to demonstrate
9:20 am
they have a need relative will to the number of students or the strains on our schools as a result of the growth that study will also demonstrate that there are a level of fee collection for residential commercial and industrial and courage other types of construction and the state sets a maximum every year or so we need to demonstrate where we qualify within that blue print for instance we're at $2.91 a square feet for residential if you look at the list the other fees drop off to less than $0.30 a square feet so clearly under the government it is the driver the impact fees we last did the study to raise
9:21 am
our rates 2013 we're at 291 the state maximum is now at 336 so we have the potential of collecting another $0.45 per square feet that obviously given the explosives housing inform san francisco if there's obviously we do the math several hundred mosquitos at $0.45 that amounts to a significant amount of money to capture i'd like to point out the revision years were incredibly bad for the collection of feeds we were in the million to million and a half dollars per year last year was good 8 points of million dollars plus interest we have reason to think points
9:22 am
collection will remain going close to that range it is obviously we do a lot of good things for the schools with that 0 money the requirement under the government code every year we perform a one and 5 year audit of that money we need to hire a third party extinct consultant and demonstrate what we spent the money on that year and the 5 year rough project probably to spend money in the 0 future if you look at the 5 year projection the funds for a potentially new school in mission bay or the southeast quadrant you'll see money for schools of the arts and modular building replacements and a lot of other existing projects so
9:23 am
that's sort of sums up where we are i previously sent out a memo a number of commissioners that had questions and both myself and the gentlemen are available for questions should you have them. >> question any questions commissioner. >> what's the process for raising the rates what needs to happen. >> the process is very clearly defined in the government code we need to retain the firm he needs to look at our demographics and the number of permits in the city not too different a process than the demographics study but similar in being able to determine we can justify a greater need there are notices that need to be noticed in publications and there's a public hearing that
9:24 am
needs to happy in front of the board of education and an a needs to be taken an appeal period and put the rates in effect we've commissions that study it the currently underway if the news is favorable it is found we can raise the rates obviously if we want to decline the raised we'll not come back to the board but to raise the rates my expectation in the next 2 and a half months we'll be able to come back and ask the board of education to make the approval. >> yes. commissioner norton. >> i want to say we definitely should do that so you have any vote i'm going to proclaim that publicly but i don't have any
9:25 am
questions i feel i feel bad which it's late at night and we'll sat and the report is good and the information and it's exciting to see where the money comes in so thank you. >> you're welcome to come over to my office and we'll talk about it. >> commissioner maufas. >> listen i haven't had an opportunity to thank you but better late than never this report is reflecting of that work and thank you for coming and speaking to us i want to come over to your office i'll be there before i leave the board of education all right. and i have an open door policy and no secretary you're welcome to come in my time and wish you luck
9:26 am
it's certainly been a pleasure to serve with you on the board and obviously you've been a wonderful supporter of facility projects we've done so best of luck and best wishes. >> thank you mr. goldie have a question on page two or three on the liz on the end under expenditure by improvements bond 24 i've sort of wondering is it is the amounts are random so we have some for $5 and some for a million dollars and like so how do you - i don't understand the $5 like why would we take $5 out of the fund. >> i can explain that fairly easier there were projects on
9:27 am
the list in some cases have life spans that go over a year for instance a brand new building or doing some accessibility work or improvements because of a new special needs program in the school as those projects begin and end there are things buyout projects that sometimes drag over from one year to another their mag maybe trailer expenditures for up a 5 directing bill and it's 0 my colleagues job to report them all it looks like we're having a 5 directing project that is the life in construction those things spread out over the years. >> it's. >> $5 if struck me and then a
9:28 am
million dollars and also the total amount in all sources was $10 it seems like so minor but i guess i should look at the accounting yes thank you very much. >> any other comments or questions from the board i see none i think we're ready for a vote. >> mr. haney ms. maufass pr ms. mendoza-mcdonnell dr. murase. >> ms. norton. >> ms. wynns and president fewer. >> 7 i's. >> thank you very much so we've already done the next two items which one is withdrawn and item n and consent calendar there's none tonight we're ready to item organization to vote on the consent calendar. >> thank you mr. haney ms. maufas percent ms. mendoza-mcdonnell. >> yes except on item 1 and 9 i
