Presenter:  Scott Moger
VI.B.1. Public Hearing for Comments on Bilingual and Middle School Rezoning Boundaries
VI.B.2. Consideration for Approval of Bilingual and Middle School Rezoning Boundaries
Description:  Temple ISD has received community input on Bilingual and middle school boundary rezoning through a Board Retreat on 10/14/16 and two community meetings held on 11/29/16 and 12/8/16. The purposes for the Bilingual rezoning are the growing Bilingual numbers, the Bilingual program is moving from three campuses to two campuses, and to balance the Bilingual populations at Hector P. Garcia Elementary and Thornton Elementary campuses to not split families.

The purposes for middle school rezoning are to balance the student enrollments at the three middle schools due to a disparity in numbers.  For example, Travis Science Academy, which is the large middle school in Temple ISD, has a larger student enrollment by almost two hundred students than Bonham Middle School and that trend is continuing. 

The administration, after a final review, recommends the proposed Bilingual and middle school boundaries be submitted to the TISD Board of Trustees as the attendance boundaries for the Bilingual program and middle school campuses beginning in the 2017-2018 school year in Temple ISD.
Recommendation:  Approve the Bilingual Program boundary map and Middle School boundary map.

VI.E.2.a. Consider, Discuss, and Take Appropriate Action Regarding Temple ISD Board Policy FFA (LOCAL) - Student Welfare – Wellness and Health Services
Description:  The federal Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) of 2010 amended the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004 to expand the requirements for local school wellness policies.  Under federal law, each district that participates in the National School Lunch Program and/or the School Breakfast Program must adopt a wellness policy.   Districts must meet the requirements of the federal regulations by June 30, 2017.  Texas state law distinguishes between the role of the School Board to oversee the management of the District through adoption of policies and the role of the Superintendent to manage the day-to-day operations of the District through development of administrative regulations that implement board-adopted policies. For this reason, TASB Policy Service has drawn a distinction between the required wellness policy, which is coded at FFA (LOCAL) in the policy manual, and the recommended wellness plan, which may include administrative regulations as well as forms and other exhibits to implement the wellness policy.   
At the November 17, 2016 School Health Advisory Committee (SHAC), policy FFA (LOCAL) was approved to be reviewed by the Temple ISD Policy Committee.  At the November Policy Committee meeting, the Policy Committee reviewed the policy development template TASB sent to all districts in Texas and the choices Temple ISD had made and was approved by the SHAC.  Once policy FFA (LOCAL) is approved by the Board of Trustees, the next step in the process will be to update and review FFA (REGULATION), referred to as the “Wellness Plan”.  The Wellness Plan will be reviewed and updated through the TISD SHAC in the upcoming months and is the conduit in how Temple ISD will implement policy FFA (LOCAL). 
Recommendation:   Approve 2016-2017 Temple ISD Board Policy FFA (LOCAL) - Student Welfare – Wellness and Health Services.
