Reading Specialist for Scott Campus, Increased Supervised/Facilitated Play Staff at Scott$70,000Not sure on how much it will cost - I believe there is already a proposal from the CL administration for a Reading Specialist at Scott (with all the details) and it will be great to add additional the supervision/ facilitated play staff at Scott. The latter will aid students with conflict resolution, supervise the entire playground and prevent aggressive play.

Please consider to fund and hire a full/part time Reading Specialist for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade on Scott campus to help students who are in needs to improve their readings level. It will benefits both students and teachers. My daughter had a reading specialist on Madison campus on 1st and 2nd grade. To get that great help, her reading level improved a lot and to have more one on one or a small group reading practice was very helpful. It would be helpful if she and other students in needs could continue to have a reading specialist on Scott campus too. Thank you!Full time Reading Specialist on Scott campus for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders.

The cost of the 8th grade graduation and reception is $10,000. The total with ceremony, reception and activities (i.e. dance, bus to six flags, class gift to school, graduate photos, plus more) is $17,000

This year and in the past the PTA has reserved $3000 for the graduation. The $10,000 is for the graduation and reception. Additional funds for addition activities will be raised by the committee.

I will bring a spread sheet of costs to the PTA meeting.

Ultimately, they would work with administration and our full time Social Worker to help implement cohesive systems from K through 8.

Reading Specialist: $20,000$20,000This position would be used to fully support the Madison Campus. Currently we're implementing a system for early intervention with our struggling readers with a 0.8 FTE Reading Specialist and we'd like to expand that to be a full time position at Madison.

Tier II Intervention Teacher: $96,000$96,000This position would be to support the Scott Campus. Currently we have very few supports for our struggling students at the Scott Campus. Similar to the Reading Specialist position at the Madison Campus. This person would help to provide extra support when needed and may have the potential to integrate into the classroom or provide enrichment opportunities as well. The type of work this person does will largely be based on the student data we have at the beginning of next year.

The third grade team is using a Science program to teach their kids. The cost is roughly $1,000. The principal's discretionary fund is down to $500. Is there a way we can split the cost or have the PTA cover this one?

KIP Translation and Language Support$5,000Small fund to assist KIP teachers with getting language materials or materials translated to teach their curriculum in Korean. SFUSD is required to provide assistance with translation services; however, because KIP is the only Korean-language program in Northern California, it is extremely difficult to get translations for core subjects like Math, Science, etc. Tyler is working on getting more assistance at the school district level so the initial ask from teachers should start there. If no traction is made in a timely manner, KIP teachers K-8 can make a request to hire a translation service or purchase language materials to support their teaching in Korean using these funds. This will hopefully alleviate time KIP teachers need to spend on translating materials or enhance teaching in Korean because there is more time/materials to share with the students. We should evaluate this at the end of the year to see if it has been used, if it has helped the teachers save time and teach in Korean more, and whether it is enough budget moving forward.

Dance & music performance for KIP's Chusok (Harvest) Festival. This annual celebration is wonderful, indeed. Adding traditional Korean dance and music would only make it more festive, meaningful and educational as it will expose the students to important aspects of Korean culture that is difficult to experience. The beauty of traditional Korean dance and music can grace our school for a short period but most certainly, will leave a lasting impression on our students.$400The requested amount will be used to provide an honorarium for traditional dance and music performer, Ilhyun Kim (trained in Korea and the U.S. and has 20 + years of experience performing and teaching). This is lower than her normal rate but she knows our school and fully agrees to the value of exposing young children to traditional arts. She would perform for both campuses on the day of the Chusok event, 10/6, if this fund request is approved.

8th Grade Graduation Fund

1. Donors to the PTA are not allowed to earmark their donations. The understanding, and trust, is that PTA and school leaders will consider the broad needs of our entire community.

2. This issue is among the biggest complaints I hear about, and I don't even have a middle school kid. There seems to be much stress, angst and, frankly, resentment around this issue.

3. Equity. My children benefit directly from some items, such as Outdoor Ed. But not from the reading specialist and other items. I don't keep score, and I don't think the majority of (reasonable) parents do either.

4. Divisiveness. I was told by one parent that the KIP families "never" give to the graduation fund. It just makes me sad that anyone is keeping score, that anyone is put into the "giving" vs. "non-giving" category....So many reasons this statement is wrong.

5. These graduating 8th graders are OUR kids. (This is where I get a bit emotional) I have been leading the school tours for a couple of years now. It is always a pleasure to hear Patty and Tyler speak about what makes our school great, and to give an honest presentation of the limitations of a public education in a big, urban district. But since the introduction of 8th graders participating in the tours, I have been completely awed at their intelligence, awareness, humility and kindness. I don't know what the secret ingredient is, but our school makes great kids. We should all congratulate them
$8,000Graduation committee, comprised of 8th grade students and their parents, plus at least one parent with no children in 8th grade.

Korean Immersion Program Support:
These funds would be used to support the Korean Immersion Program and its efforts to spread cultural learning throughout the school. Much of the funding would help put on the Chuseok and Seollal celebrations at both of our campuses. Food, singing, dancing, and some learning will take place for all 700 of our kids on these two days. By helping to fund this initiative, other funds are freed up to allow our KIP teachers to meet on a quarterly basis to plan lessons, improve program initiatives, and reflect on their teaching practice.
$5,000These funds will be used to purchase food, utensils, and cultural items used in teaching the entire student body at Claire Lilienthal. These funds will be paired with support from SFKIEA and the Korean Consulate to host cultural celebrations and fund collaboration time for our seven Korean Immersion Teachers.

Middle School Support Person:
This initiative will be a personnel position used to support the Middle School students and staff. As of now, the exact details of that position have not been worked out with our teaching team. Once the administration and staff collaborate on the specifics of the position, we will get back with a detailed plan and timeline. This could be support for struggling students receiving D's or F's, High School Counseling, in-class support for students, more developed parent education, and more.
$180,000These funds will be spent over the course of three years in service of our Middle School program. $60,000 each year for three years will be dedicated to this support position. Although these funds don't fully support the1.0 FTE needed, these funds will be combined with other sources including Salesforce's Principal Innovation Fund and our SFUSD budget to fully fund the position. Depending on how the staff designs this position, the person hired could support with parent education (for high school applications), conflict resolution, academic support, and more.

This request is for school year 2018-19 to allocate $50 per student to help cover Outdoor Education program out of pocket costs from grades 3rd - 8th. These are the trips that become more expensive due to longer overnight stays, and farther distances traveled. This request is in addition to budget already allocated for Outdoor Education scholarships. If there are an estimated 520 3rd-8th graders, the budget request would be 520 students x $50 = $26,000$26,000Grades 3rd - 8th Outdoor Education programs when trips become more expensive due to longer periods away, and farther distances traveled. The funds will help offset the out of pocket cost per student for the trip.
