STATE OF MINNESOTA
The School Board of Anoka-Hennepin Independent School District No. 11 held a regular meeting on Monday, October 22, 2012, at the Sandburg Education Center, Anoka, Minnesota.

RECOGNITIONS
The School Board recognized the following group of students. Each of them was given medals in honor of their achievement. Georgia Larson, the International Baccalaureate (IB) coordinator at Champlin Park High School (CPHS), read the names of the 13 students who earned IB diplomas in 2012. To reach this status, students had to score 24 or more points on IB tests on six different topics. Students with 30 points earned the equivalent of their first year in college. (Six of the 13 CPHS students earned 30 or more points.) Larson spoke highly of the benefits of IB for both students and instructors and thanked the School Board members for their continued support of the program.

COMMUNICATIONS DELEGATIONS OR PETITIONS
Sue DelCastillo of Andover, Paula Mohr of Anoka, Brad Olson of Coon Rapids, and Paige D’Heilly, a student at Coon Rapids High School, asked the School Board to rescind policy 510.10, “Seventh and Eighth Grade Student Participation in High School Athletics.” The Coon Rapids High School girls’ cross-country team attended the meeting to support the speakers.
Barb Anderson, Champlin, shared her concerns about “Mix It Up at Lunch Day” set for Oct. 30. Sponsored by Teaching Tolerance, a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center that was involved in a lawsuit against the Anoka-Hennepin School District, the event encourages students to “identify, question and cross social boundaries.” Anderson suggested that rather than taking part in the national Oct. 30 event, Anoka-Hennepin schools hold a separate event in November called “Meet a New Friend Day.”
Melissa Thompson, Coon Rapids, told the School Board she is concerned that actions taken advance the religious rights of some over the civil rights of others and she asked the School Board to remove Bryan Lindquist from the Anti-Bullying Task Force.
Stephanie Schroeder asked each Board member to please remember all families they are representing, even the silent families that do not speak up or call press conferences.
School Board Vice Chair John Hoffman spoke out against Bryan Lindquist being named to the Anti-Bullying Task Force because of public statements Lindquist had made about gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and transgender (GLBT) individuals. He also asked about the process of appointing members to this community task force. School Board Chair Tom Heidemann stated he would explain the process after the Superintendent’s Report.
Superintendent Carlson gave a report to the board and reviewed the board calendar. The Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment Committee (CIAC) is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. on Oct 24 and will start addressing the math issue at all levels, the Anoka Halloween Parades will be on Oct 26 & 27. Nov 1, Michelle Vargas will be recognized as a top woman of the year in finance and on Nov. 13 she will be attending a luncheon appointing the CFO of the year. Nov. 13 is a School Board Work Session; data compiled will be presented on the playing up policy. Superintendent Carlson attended the Northern Stars fund raiser and thanked everyone involved. He also attended a workshop on Finland Education and will report back to the Board.
Chair Tom Heidemann moved back to John Hoffman’s request to explain the selection process for the Anti-Bullying Task Force. Chair Heidemann referred to letters he sent to School Board members Oct. 1 and Oct. 10 outlining the selection process. He noted the consent decree specifically outlined representation on the task force, with a broad cross section of community members that is mindful of protected classes, gender balance and religious beliefs. Heidemann said he looks forward to the task force’s recommendations. School Board member Mike Sullivan said he had full confidence in the task force members selected by Heidemann. He stated we need to listen to all voices.
Paul Cady, General Counsel, presented revisions to the Equal Educational Opportunity Policy, the Harassment, Violence and Discrimination Policy and the Bullying Prohibition Policy as discussed at the previous board meeting. Most of the changes are more semantic rather than substantive, such as changing school to district, and victim or complainant to target, according to Paul Cady, district general counsel. The primary change in the Equal Educational Opportunity Policy clarifies that the policy applies before and after school on school property, school buses, and school functions at other locations. It also applies to off-campus conduct that causes disruption at school. All three policies address off-campus conduct. The Harassment, Violence and Discrimination Policy was revised to specify that if a complaint involves a school board member, the complaint should be filed directly with the board chair. There is also clarifying language on reporting a complaint and timelines for notification of parents. The biggest change in the Bullying Prohibition Policy is in the definition of bullying. The definition included in the policy was revised to be more in line with the federal definition and that used by a number of school districts. Over the last few months the district received input on these policies from the Great Lakes Equity Center and the Office of Civil Rights of the federal Department of Justice (DOJ) as required by a consent decree that settled a lawsuit on bullying and harassment. The input of the equity center and the DOJ, as well as that of board members, is reflected in the revised policies. Copies of the full policies are available on the district website at www.anoka.k12.mn.us. Mike Sullivan moved to approve the revisions to the Equal Educational Opportunity Policy, John Hoffman seconded. Motion carried.
John Hoffman moved to approve the Harassment, Violence and Discrimination Policy, Marci Anderson seconded. Motion carried.
Marci Anderson moved to approve the Bullying Prohibition Policy, Mike Sullivan seconded. Motion carried.
Cindy Reichert, Anoka County elections manager, spoke to the School Board about a joint powers agreement to purchase and maintain voting equipment and conduct elections. In 2010, Anoka County election staff organized the “ACE Work Group” comprised of city and school district election administrators. The group formed a systematic examination of the processes, responsibilities and obligations of each party in Anoka County’s election system. This includes administrative and technical process and how to administer elections in the most cost-effective way. Because Anoka County needs to update its voting equipment system, the work group also developed a cost-sharing proposal for an equipment purchase that goes beyond the initial capital purchase and provides on-going support to ensure the future integrity of the system. Following the work group’s proposal, the Anoka County Voting Equipment Task Force was formed. It reviewed, discussed and adjusted the work group plan; the task force is now ready to propose the plan’s adoption. The task force recommends an agreement between election jurisdictions, including the Anoka-Hennepin School District that establishes Anoka County as sole owner of the voting equipment and calls for an annual fee to be paid to the county by cities and school districts to supplement the cost. Steve Kerr, director of Community Education, said Anoka-Hennepin’s cost should be about $20,000 a year for the life of the contract. The agreement will also include provisions to address other election duties and responsibilities. Kerr said there will be a separate agreement with Anoka County for Reichert to continue to serve as Anoka-Hennepin’s clerk for election services. Superintendent Dennis Carlson said he is thankful for her role and expertise. Reichert hopes to have the joint power agreement from the county attorney by the end of the month, Anoka County Board approval by Nov. 27 and approval by all parties to the agreement by the end of the year.
The School Board approved a resolution to allow the district to receive grants and funds from the Minnesota High School League Foundation. The money will be used to promote and fund participation by high school students in extracurricular athletic and fine art programs.

The School Board approved a resolution stating it intends to move forward with implementation of the Quality Performance Plan, known as Q Comp, for the 2013-14 school year. The plan was developed cooperatively by the district and teachers and submitted to the state, which granted approval. It was also approved by a vote of the teachers’ union, Anoka-Hennepin Education Minnesota. Designed to ensure students get the best possible education, Anoka-Hennepin’s Q Comp plan provides for systematic teacher evaluation that connects teacher compensation to student performance. The plan provides financial incentives for teachers to improve their skills, establishes greater accountability through consistent evaluations, fosters teachers’ use of research-based best practices through job-embedded professional development, rewards teachers for meeting achievement goals and reinforces student achievement.
RESOLUTION
ALTERNATIVE TEACHER PAY (Q COMP)
BE IT RESOLVED by the School Board of Independent School District No. 11 that pursuant to Minn. Stat. §122A.414, that Anoka-Hennepin School District No. 11 plans to proceed forward with its approved Q Comp program and plan for implementation in the 2013-2014 school year.

The School Board heard an overview of the Oct. 1 enrollment report, which showed a decline of 412 students in regular kindergarten through grade 12 from Oct. 1, 2011. Enrollment for regular K-12, alternative day and special education students is 37,625. Enrollment for early childhood special education students is 758, bringing Anoka-Hennepin’s enrollment to 38,383. Having seen ups and downs with kindergarten enrollment since 2001, there was a slight uptick this year with 33 more kindergarten students this fall than 2011. Anoka-Hennepin’s enrollment for its elementary schools is 16,181 – 55 more students than had been projected. Anoka-Hennepin’s largest elementary school is Andover Elementary School with 1,332. The middle school enrollment is 8,634, with Jackson Middle School having the most students at 1,893. High school enrollment is at 11,943; Blaine High School is Anoka-Hennepin’s largest high school at 2,895. The total secondary enrollment is 20,577; 36 students less than projected. School Board Chairman Tom Heidemann asked about the decline in high school enrollment. Klund-Schubert said more than half of the loss came from students in ninth grade. While the Post Secondary Education Options (PSEO) program can account for losses in eleventh and twelfth grade, it does not explain younger students leaving the school district. It was noted that new charter schools have opened in the area and might help explain the decrease in enrollment. The enrollment for Anoka-Hennepin special education sites is 1,137. This includes programs at Compass at Bell Center, Crossroads High School and New Connections. The percent of students of color increased slightly to 22.22 percent; 10 years ago the number was 12.79 percent. The number of students receiving free or reduced lunch prices, a federal indicator of poverty, also increased. More than one-third, 34.06 percent, of Anoka-Hennepin students now live in poverty. This has increased significantly in the last 10 years when the number was 18.67 percent. Superintendent Dennis Carlson said he appreciates the work of Klund-Schubert and data coordinator, Mary James. The enrollment figures are critical because they drive the district’s budget. “We cannot be wrong on these kinds of numbers,” Carlson said to Klund-Schubert and James. “If the numbers are off, we’ll be off millions of dollars and we cannot afford that. I keep asking Mary how we are doing on our kindergarten number, because that’s the number that’s going to drive us for the next 12 years. “It’s remarkable the numbers you get for the district. I credit you and the program you use.” The complete enrollment report is available on the district website at www.anoka.k12.mn.us.
Chuck Holden, chief operations officer, and members of the Health, Wellness and Safety Committee presented their regular review of the Student Wellness Policy. The process included administering a survey to parents, students and staff members to better understand their knowledge and understanding of the policy. Results were fairly positive: 74% of adult respondents were aware or familiar with the district’s Student Wellness Policy and 42% of staff respondents said their students have opportunities during class for physical activity or movement. However, there were a few areas of concern; 48% of staff respondents said students occasionally or frequently miss recess/physical education due to misbehavior and over 50% of staff respondents thought class celebration practices do not promote healthy living. The Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP) will soon bring state dollars into Anoka-Hennepin schools to promote physical activity and nutrition. Lillian Abelson, Hennepin County senior health promotion specialist, reiterated the importance of physical activity showing scanned images of student brains taking the same test. The first scan showed the brain activity of students who had sat quietly and the other after a 20-minute walk. The scan depicting the brain after a walk showed far greater brain activity. Carla Pederson, education/SHIP coordinator from Anoka County Community Health and Environmental Services, also linked society’s over-consumption of sugar to poor memory formation, learning disorders and depression. Key messages from the committee’s newly developed communication plan were shared. The plan’s overall goal is to increase awareness of the district’s wellness policy and its efforts in promoting lifelong health for students. This may be done through a variety of tactics including news releases, videos and postcards. The committee shared a form that was recently created to help classrooms order healthy snacks from the district’s nutrition services. Abelson noted that Anoka-Hennepin was one of only three school districts in the state to be offering such a service. The School Board will vote on the group’s policy revisions at a future date. The information packet highlighting policy edits and the committee’s slideshow presentation can be found in the Oct. 22 agenda.
