7. Legislation Referred from the Board of Supervisors (All Items to Follow Discussion and Possible Action)
A. [File No. 130038] Appropriating $1,500,000 for the San Francisco Unified School District – FY 2012-2013. (Mayor)
Presenter: Hydra Mendoza, Mayor’s Education and Family Services Advisor
(Document D)

Chair Shackelford called item 7 out of order and welcomed Hydra Mendoza, the Mayor’s Education and Family Services Advisor, to the Youth Commission meeting. Ms. Mendoza then provided commissioners with an overview of the Rainy Day Fund and how this legislation would be appropriating $1,500,000 to the SFUSD. The Rainy Day Fund was created in 2003, when voters passed Proposition G, which required the City to save revenue above 5 percent growth year over year, during good economic times. The school district is then eligible for up to 25% of the total fund if two conditions are met: the district must be getting less money per pupil from the state when adjusted for inflation and must be facing significant teacher layoffs, based on the Governor’s budget. When requirements are met, these funds are then released to the district in the new fiscal year or prior by approval of the Board of Supervisors. This ordinance is specifically asking for the release of $1,500,000 from the Rainy Day Fund to the SFUSD earlier, as it would be helpful for the school district in their planning. Once released to the school district, monies from the Rainy Day Fund can be utilized by the school district, however they see fit for their schools; historically, the funds have been used to offset teacher layoffs. Ms. Mendoza encouraged the commission to support the allocation of the $1,500,000 to the SFUSD.

Commissioner Monge-Rodriguez asked if there had been any indication as to how the Superintendent plans to use the money and what were the existing competing needs for the additional monies. Ms. Mendoza replied that this conversation would happen at the budget committee meeting on Tuesday evening. Some of the competing needs for the funds may include credit recovery, special education implementation, student nutrition, the early childhood and education division, and teacher professional development. Commissioners Shackelford, Monge-Rodriguez, and Wu asked additional clarifying questions. Ms. Mendoza stated that the Mayor’s office would not be encouraging the district to fund specific things as the office feels strongly that the school district would know how to best allocate their dollars. She also shared that the City is committed to working to support the school district. Commissioner Wu thanked Ms. Mendoza for her presentation, and expressed to his peers that the allocation seemed appropriate, considering all of the cuts to education in recent years.

There was no public comment.

Commissioner Persky stated that in general he was supportive of the legislation; however, his main issue is that the funds would be coming from the Rainy Day Fund, and stated that the City should be looking at how to give additional dollars to support the school district. Commissioner Persky stated that he would like to work on some amendments to include in the Youth Commission’s referral response. He shared that he would be more comfortable if the commission could provide in their response, a statement urging the City to find additional dollars, outside of the Rainy Day Fund, to support the school district.

Ms. Mendoza clarified that the City has traditionally released $1,500,000 to the school district, and this ordinance is not in response to the recent budget supplemental coming from Supervisor Jane Kim’s office. The Mayor feels that the earlier release of these funds, as indicated in the legislation, would be very helpful for the school district. Ms. Mendoza acknowledged commissioners’ work around supporting Supervisor Kim’s budget supplemental and also shared that the Mayor has shared during his State of the City address, his commitment to the school district, and proposal that the City should not pull 25% of Prop H monies to backfill the City’s deficit. Ms. Mendoza thanked the commission for their time, and encouraged them to continue to reach out to her office with any additional questions or concerns.

Commissioners Huynh, Armstrong, and Chu asked clarifying questions of Commissioner Persky’s proposed amendments. Commissioners Armstrong, Shackelford, Chu, and Brodwin engaged in a discussion around the language used in Commissioner Persky’s amendments. Commissioner Monge-Rodriguez suggested that instead of giving specific directives in the referral response, commissioners can also participate in the school district’s budget committee meetings. Commissioner requested that this item be tabled so he would have more time to work on the language for his amendments.

Commissioner Chu, seconded by Commissioner Persky moved table this item. This motion was approved by acclamation.

9. Youth Commission Business (All Items to Follow Discussion and Possible Action)
B. [First Reading] Resolution 1213—09— Urging Support of Senate Bill 8 and its Mission of Prioritizing Students
Sponsor and presenter: Commissioner Shackelford
(Document F)

Chair Shackelford then called item 9B out of order.

Chair Shackelford gave a brief introduction to her resolution to urge the Board of Supervisors and the Mayor to formally support Senate Bill 8. Chair Shackelford also shared that she would be requesting to suspend the bylaws and vote on the resolution after the first reading. As this resolution was supporting a senate bill from Senator Leland Yee’s office, Chair Shackelford then invited Ms. Emily Salgado, a San Francisco district representative from Senator Yee’s office, to the podium to speak about the bill.

Ms. Salgado introduced herself to the commission and provided some background on Senator Yee’s work around education, in particular, wanting to help college students in the wake of the rising costs of college tuition, the increase of classroom sizes, and the many challenges that working and middle class families face in accessible higher education. Senator Yee has tried repeatedly to pass a law to not allow California State Universities (CSUs) to give pay hikes to executives. Ms. Salgado expressed hope that the bill has enough support to pass this year. Ms. Salgado also clarified that the legislature has jurisdiction over the CSUs and not the UCs, as UCs are autonomous, so SB8 would only be strongly urging that UCs not give pay hikes to their executives. She urged the Youth Commission to support Chair Shackelford’s resolution, and welcomed questions. Commissioners Monge-Rodriguez and Chu asked clarifying questions.

Chair Shackelford then read the resolution into the public record.

There was no public comment.

Chair Shackelford urged her commissioners to consider suspending the bylaws and adopting the resolution upon first reading. Commissioner Brodwin, seconded by Commissioner Armstrong, moved to suspend the bylaws. This motion was approved by the following roll call vote: Ayes (14) – Armstrong, Brodwin, Chu, Covington, Gomez, Huynh, Marshall-Fricker, Monge-Rodriguez, Tu Mutch, Persky, Shackelford, Taumoepeau, Wu, Yu.

Commissioner Shackelford, seconded by Commissioner Brodwin, moved to adopt the resolution. The resolution was adopted by the following roll call vote: Ayes (14) - Armstrong, Brodwin, Chu, Covington, Gomez, Huynh, Marshall-Fricker, Monge-Rodriguez, Tu Mutch, Persky, Shackelford, Taumoepeau, Wu, Yu.

A. [Second Reading] Resolution 1213-07 – Fully fund the plan for affordable housing for Transitional Age Youth
Sponsors and presenters: Commissioners Wu, Guzman-Ramos, Marshall-Fricker, Tu Mutch, Taumoepeau
(Document E)

Chair Shackelford went back to item 9A at 6:10 p.m.

As the main author of the resolution, Commissioner Wu provided some substantive and detailed remarks on the changes to this resolution since it’s last reading. Commissioner Wu explained that the resolution is to keep policy makers mindful of the barriers transitional age youth (TAY) face, housing being a large barrier, and to urge policy makers to consider TAY.

Commissioners Wu, Tu Mutch, and Taumoepeau then took turns reading the resolution into the public record.

Public Comment

Rene Ontiveros, a member of the Transitional Age Youth-San Francisco Initiative (TAY-SF), expressed his gratitude to the Housing, LGBTQ, and TAY issues committee members for their work on this resolution. He shared that the TAY-SF advisory body has conducted multiple focus groups and found that the need for TAY housing is great, as well as the need for comprehensive, supportive services to aid in the successful transition of TAY. He urged the commission to support the resolution.

Rory Talley, staff at SF Success Center, expressed to commissioner, his gratitude for their important work and efforts. Mr. Talley shared that commissioners should be demanding, not urging, their requests of adult policy makers. He also strongly suggested that commissioners strike out “perpetrators” on line 19, of page 1 of the resolution, as youth are more often, than not, the “victims” of multiple crimes.

Jeremy Miller, Program Director, Idriss Stelley Foundation, expressed his gratitude to the commissioners who worked on this resolution. Mr. Miller also suggested that commissioners strike out the word “perpetrators” on line 19, of page 1.

Commissioner Wu then explained to his peers that while 400 units for TAY housing seem like a small amount, it is a lot in terms of funding, as 1 unit of TAY housing costs roughly $3-500,000. Commissioner Wu explained that there are 187 units left to complete the 400 unit goal that was previously recommended by the TAY task force. He acknowledged that in advocating for housing, funding is always an issue. He urged his peers to support him in adopting the resolution, and expressed that he would make sure to follow up with the Board of Supervisors and the Mayor. Commissioners Shackelford and Chu commended Commissioner Wu for his work on the resolution.

Commissioner Tu Mutch, seconded by Commissioner Armstrong, moved to amend the resolution by striking out the words “perpetrator of” on line 18, page 1, so that the line reads “…youth are disproportionately the victims of crime in San Francisco and disproportionately involved in the SF juvenile justice system”. This motion was adopted by the following roll call vote: Ayes (14) – Armstrong, Brodwin, Chu, Covington, Gomez, Huynh, Marshall-Fricker, Monge-Rodriguez, Tu Mutch, Persky, Shackelford, Taumoepeau, Wu, Yu.

Commissioner Brodwin moved to adopt the resolution, seconded by Commissioner Yu. The resolution was adopted by the following roll call vote: Ayes (14) – Armstrong, Brodwin, Chu, Covington, Gomez, Huynh, Marshall-Fricker, Monge-Rodriguez, Tu Mutch, Persky, Shackelford, Taumoepeau, Wu, Yu.

Sponsors and presenters: Commissioners Covington, Monge-Rodriguez, Persky, Wu
(Document G)

Commissioner Persky provided brief remarks on the importance of assisting undocumented students file for deferred action.

Commissioners Persky, Covington, Wu, and Monge-Rodriguez then took turns reading the resolution into the public record.

Public Comment

Nikki Dinh, attorney from Asian Pacific Islander (API) Legal Outreach, commended the commissioners for working on issues affecting undocumented youth. Ms. Dinh spoke about the API Legal Outreach’s work in being one of the Office of Civic Engagement and Immigrant Affairs (OCEIA) grantee to aid residents in the filing of DACA. Ms. Dinh shared that grantees has recently seen a decrease in the number of DACA eligible persons stopping by the clinics for help, and expressed that grantees could use help with outreach. Ms. Dinh also strongly urged against the resolution’s language of having a centralized database of DACA eligible students.

Commissioner Monge-Rodriguez clarified that the centralized database would hold information and resources to assist youth in applying for deferred action, and would not be a centralized database of information about undocumented youth. He also shared that he and the co-authors of the resolution have been actively meeting with and speaking with various entities including the Office of Civic Engagement and Immigrant Affairs, and more recently, Christina Wong, the Special Assistant to the Superintendent. Commissioner Persky also shared that they were also in contact with student delegates on the Student Advisory Council.

There was no official action taken on this item.

D. [First Reading] Resolution 1213—11—Urging the Mayor and the Board of Supervisors to Urge the San Francisco Juvenile Probation Department Not to Equip SOP Unit Probation Officers with Firearms
Sponsors and presenters: Commissioners Carrion, Gomez, Monge-Rodriguez
(Document H)

Commissioner Monge-Rodriguez gave brief introductory remarks. Members of the Youth Justice Committee and Chair Shackelford had attended the January 9, 2013 meeting of the San Francisco Juvenile Probation Commission, where Assistant Chief of Juvenile Probation, Allan Nance, gave a presentation entitled, “Juvenile Probation Officer Field Safety and Monitoring Compliance: the Changing Landscape of Community Corrections and Supervisor of High Risk Offenders”. At this meeting, Assistant Chief Nance spoke about developing a revised protocol for JPD’s probation officers to be announced sometime in April 2013. Community members and youth spoke about the importance for the Juvenile Probation Department’s (JPD) probation officers to provide a more specialized focus on youth’s rehabilitative service needs. Commissioner Monge-Rodriguez clarified to his peers that there isn’t currently a proposal to arm the probation officers at JPD. Members of the Youth Justice Committee felt a need to make a formal statement to not equip JPD probation officers with firearms.

Commissioners Monge-Rodriguez and Gomez then gave a first reading of the resolution into the public record.

Commissioners Covington asked committee members to look into what alternative practices existed for probation officers.

Public Comment

Jeremy Miler, Idriss Stelley Foundation, thanked commissioners for being proactive on this issue.

Public Comment

Jeremy Miller, Idriss Stelley Foundation, expressed to commissioners that the SFPD has had years to implement a Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) model which outlines de-escalation based strategies in its policing, and still has not done so. Mr. Miller urged the commission to adopt the resolution.

Commissioners Huynh, Covington, and Marshall-Fricker asked additional questions. Commissioner Marshall-Fricker suggested that the commission should wait to hear from the SFPD before taking action on an item that affects their department, as has been the practice of the Youth Commission. Mr. Yedidia also noted that the committee had emailed the department the version of the resolution and had indicated to respective departments that the resolution was just going through a first reading at tonight’s meeting. Commissioners Armstrong, Persky, Tu Mutch, and Huynh expressed interest in working with the youth justice committee on this issue.

Commissioner Brodwin thanked Mr. Miller for his presence at the meeting.

Commissioner Persky made a motion, seconded by Commissioner Persky, to approve the following clauses: the Youth Commission supports the $1.5 million rainy day fund appropriation as proposed by the Mayor with the following comments: the Youth Commission urges the Board of Supervisors and the Mayor to commit to adequately funding services of the SFUSD; the Youth Commission commends the Mayor for mentioning in his recent State of the City address his intent to not pull the trigger on the Public Education Enrichment Fund for the next fiscal year.
This motion was approved unanimously by acclamation.

Commissioner Persky, seconded by Commissioner Brodwin, moved to approve the following clause: the Youth Commission in the future does not recommend the usage of the rainy day fund or funding sources that provide no mathematically supplemental monies when the intent of the appropriation is to provide additional monies to the SFUSD; the Youth Commission urges the Mayor and the Board of Supervisors to find long term supplemental funding beyond legal requirements for the SFUSD to help fund services such as “A through G” and to help prevent teacher layoffs in order to meet the unmet needs of San Francisco’s youth.

This motion was approved by the following roll call vote: Ayes (13) – Armstrong, Brodwin, Chu, Covington, Gomez, Huynh, Monge-Rodriguez, Tu Mutch, Persky, Shackelford, Taumoepeau, Wu, Yu. No’s (1) – Marshall-Fricker.
