3 The Council of Great City Schools recognized the AISD as a 2011 Top Performing District in the management of its business services. This recognition was based on key performance measures and indicators that demonstrate efficient and effective use of resources in the critical areas of child nutrition, maintenance and operations, safety and security and student transportation. I provide leadership and oversight to the following operations functions: Facilities Construction Management Maintenance Services Planning Services Transportation Food Services Police Services 3

5 Facilities and Operations Office of Facilities, Department of Construction Management and Department of Maintenance Services: Scheduled construction of the district-wide performing arts center begins in January 2013. Design of North Central Elementary School No. 2 has begun with the approval of the schematic design by the Board of Trustees on September 24, 2012. The feasibility period for the evaluation of the site is currently underway. Presentation of the proposed attendance areas for North Central Elementary School No. 1 is scheduled for the December 3, 2012 work session with Board action scheduled for December 17, 2012. Planning for the 2013 Summer Shutdown to reduce energy use is currently underway. The Summer Shutdown program, which has been implemented for the previous two summers, helped avoid approximately $450,000 for the cost of electricity. 5

10 Facilities and Operations Police Department 68 Sworn Police Officers. Provides 24/7 coverage for all 120 facilities in the 220 square mile jurisdiction of AISD. 43 of the 68 officers are assigned to campuses as School Resource Officers (SRO). Officers provide services outside of traditional law enforcement- presentations, teach elective class (Junior Police Academy) at middle school campuses. Officers provide Gang Resistance and Education Training (GREAT) to 5 th and 6 th grade students in the district. The department handles an average of 28,000 calls for service each year. 10

11 Facilities and Operations Transportation Transportation Department serves 22,000 students daily on 512 school buses through 245 regular routes, 153 special education routes, 125 mid- day routes, 8,000 field trips and summer service routes. “Transportation management within the district is exemplary”, according to the most recent management efficiency study completed in May 2009. The department has current technology applications to manage efficient routing, a stop location finder, school personnel access to bus route information, field trips and field trip requests, after school buses, planning fleet maintenance, mapping rider addresses, discipline referrals, digital cameras, an accident database and GPS system. Replacement buses meet the latest low-emission EPA standards. The district owns a plug-in hybrid bus, is piloting six propane buses made possible through Railroad Commission funding, and has retrofitted 93 buses that are seven to 10 years old to improve indoor and outdoor air quality and reduce emissions. 11

12 Long-Range Facilities Planning In November 2009, the Board directed the Administration to address long-range facilities planning. The primary purpose of the facilities master planning effort is defined by the assumptions that the Board adopted on January 25, 2010: To thoroughly identify and consider all factors that contribute to facilities decisions, and develop a comprehensive plan that will ensure adequate and equitable facilities to support and enhance the learning environment for academic programs in all schools. To inform the planning for every district facility, will be developed over a 10-year planning horizon, and align to the district’s adopted Strategic Plan 2010-15 and resulting educational plans. To be an open and transparent process that engages stakeholders from all school communities in the district, district and public entity representatives, students, employee professional organizations and the faith and business communities. To address recommendations to achieve greater facility efficiency to reduce the cost of district operations to realize savings while being responsive to changes in student enrollment, including recommendations on the use of portable buildings. To address the issue of resource levels needed to effectively maintain and preserve the taxpayers’ investment in new facilities. The AISD Strategic Plan, Key Action Step 4.1, directs the district to “develop and implement long-range plans for facilities, transportation, libraries and technology that align infrastructure with the district’s educational plan.” 12

13 Long-Range Facilities Planning (Cont’d.) With this guidance, the District undertook a year-long facilities planning effort that included an educational adequacy assessment of all facilities, a two-day visioning workshop, eleven community meetings, and 24 meetings of the 72-member Facility Master Plan Task Force. On March 28, 2011, the AISD Trustees “received” the final 10-Year Report of the Facility Master Plan Task Force. On May 23, 2011, the Board approved a revised Facility Master Plan Next Steps Timeline, which was developed based on a combination of factors, including community feedback, institutional history, and key benchmarks that will be needed to set the stage for a potential future bond election. On November 21, 2011, the Board of Trustees approved the Facility Master Plan Framework to guide future long-range district planning efforts. On December 12 and December 19, 2011, the Board of Trustees approved the initial group of Annual Academic and Facilities Recommendations (AAFRs). The AAFRs serve as a blueprint for how the district establishes both its short- and long- range facilities plan. They have both a capital and operational impact and must be included in the district’s overall budget planning. Since the adoption of the Framework and the approval of the first AAFRs, a Draft Ten-Year Academic and Facility Master Planning Timeline has been developed in order to begin to capture the long-range plans of the district. A proposed modification to the Facility Master Plan Framework will be scheduled for Board action at the January 28, 2013, Regular Board Meeting to ensure that consideration of AAFRs is not scheduled in such a way that new Board members are seated the month before AAFRs are scheduled for Board action in December. 13
