Mr. Smith stated that he did not include Item 10 K in his motion, nor did he include the other item he had listed for discussion. They were taken care of before the meeting so that was why he did not include them in his motion, and why didn’t want to discuss them.

Ms. Garcia clarified that Mr. Smith's motion included only Items # 6. A and B, and 9A and B and then called for a second to Mr. Smith’s motion.

Ms. Garcia stated that they would then go to Item 7. A the Superintendent’s Report, starting with item B. Mr. Smith and interjected and stated that they were on Item #6. A, Approval of Minutes.

M. Garcia stated that she believed they were now on Item # 7, which was the Superintendent’s Report, and turned it over to Dr. Romero.

7. SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT

A. Maintenance and Construction Report

Dr. Romero stated, that he just wanted to remind everyone that they were going to be moving the Maintenance and Construction Report to next month. He said he did want to say that they had seen some wonderful projects started and finished throughout the district. Right now, they were more underway when it came to upgrading the football field for Valencia High School. It looked beautiful. Things were starting to come across, and they were seeing everything happen, and also they were working on the track there.

Dr. Romero said they got to spend some time there a few weeks ago. They got to do the ribbon-cutting for the ninja course, which was a lot of fun. He added that he realized how old and out of shape he was, but it was a lot of fun, and it was good to see the kids out there doing that.

B. End of the 2021-22 School Year

Dr. Romero said that he wanted to just talk a little bit about the end of the school year. They were in the last week of the school year, and it had been an interesting year, of course – one like no other - they kept saying that as they were still in a pandemic. But throughout the pandemic, they saw so many successes, and one of those being what happened just that last weekend - to see all the high school seniors walk across the stage. He said that it was very exciting to be a part of that.

Dr. Romero stated that they got to see the graduation for Los Lunas High School, Valencia High School, and Century High School, and to able to shake each of their hands and that was why they were there. For many of the students, they saw them come in as three and four-year-olds. They saw them grow up, and got to know their families and their siblings. There were things that they’d accomplished, and the troubles that they went through.

7. SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT (Continued)

B. End of the 2021-22 School Year (Continued)

Dr. Romero said when they saw them walk across that stage, it was a big deal for all of them. He thanked everyone for making that happen. He said it was every one of their educators, their administrators, principals, everyone who worked in the schools – the custodians, nurses, everyone made that happen and he thanked them for that.

Dr. Romero said he also wanted to say that it was a great year when it came to their leadership development. He recognized them and added that they were amazing. What he loved about them was that they were a team together, and he had been able to see it grow throughout the school year, about how they leaned on each other, and relied on each other, and made sure that they had each other’s backs. They did that and had gotten to know each other more than before. Dr. Romero stated that they went through a program this year, working with the Public Education Department, to be able to work on some of their leadership development skills. They would continue that process throughout the summer, and into next year. He said he was really excited to see what next year would bring. He thought it was going to be a wonderful year, and with that, Dr. Romero said he just wanted to thank everybody again for the great year.

Dr. Romero stated that day was a hard day, because they’d learned about the shooting in Uvalde, Texas. He said he wanted to thank Mr. Smith for asking for that moment for silence. They’d heard about that, it got to them because it all hit close to home. When they thought about what has happened, even just in New Mexico this year, there had been a number of shootings also. It has been difficult for him. Dr. Romero said he was part of a school shooting when he was in Roswell, and it was something he would never forget, and they never wanted it to happen. So hearing that, it brought back some memories that he would prefer not to think about. But they all stuck together, they all had each other's backs, and he wanted to thank them for that.

7. SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT (Continued)

B. End of the 2021-22 School Year (Continued)

They were going to end the school year on a wonderful note. Thursday was the last day for students, and they would be closing up the schools on Friday. He thanked everyone again for everything that they did. He said they were looking forward to next year, and with that he would stand for any questions.

Dr. Romero said that they did have some other presentations, but they had been consented. He told Mr. Vickers that he would share all of that information that had not been discussed. Mr. Vickers thanked him.

Ms. Garcia asked if any board members wanted to comment on anything Dr. Romero had stated.

Mr. Smith stated that he had a comment. He said that he had to say that whatever happened, happened. He was back at just the right time, and he wanted to commend every staff member that had anything to do with that graduation ceremony. Because, as he had always said, that was the reason that he chose to sit up there - those fifteen seconds that it took that student to walk across the stage. He got to watch hundreds of those fifteen seconds, he got to see their faces, and it was all a product of their hard work. Mr. Smith stated that it was absolutely amazing, and it made everything worth it. He said that he wanted to applaud all of them for everything that they did - especially those of them that were involved in the graduation. He told that he thanked them very much for putting that special event on.

Mr. Bennett said that he thought Mr. Smith said it really well.

Ms. Garcia asked if Mr. Giron or Mr Vickers had any comments. They did not. Ms. Garcia said she just wanted to thank them also. It was really nice to be involved in all three of those events, shaking the hands of those kids - some of them were so excited they almost forgot to shake our hands. Mr. Smith had to remind them, wait, and come back – they wanted to shake their hands too.

7. SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT (Continued)

B. End of the 2021-22 School Year (Continued)

The majority of the kids were excited and happy to be a part of it. They and their families was why they did it - the moms and dads. It was a great photo op for them. As Mr. Smith and Mr. Bennett had said, it was an amazing experience to be part of that. She thanked the principals and everybody who put that together.

Ms. Garcia stated that these items by the superintendent were for informational purposes only and no action was needed nor warranted.

A brief discussion ensued which number they were on. It was confirmed that the next agenda Item was #9. A. and B. A. APPROVAL OF SECONDARY HANDBOOKS - CHS, LLHS, and VHS and B. LLMS and VMS

8. APPROVAL OF LLHS PED WAIVER REQUEST: Physical Education
(Approved by Consent)

9. APPROVAL OF SECONDARY HANDBOOKS

A. CHS, LLHS, and VHS
B. LLMS and VMS

Dr. Romero announced that what they had done this year was, they were attempting to align our secondary handbooks, starting off with the District Handbook. As they knew, they had two comprehensive high schools, and they had their opportunity high school that encompassed a number of programs. Of course, they also had their two comprehensive middle schools. In the efforts they had worked on with these two handbooks was that they wanted to align, them one, between the two middle schools, so that they aligned and had common language with each other. So if they were a student, and they were at Los Lunas Middle School, and they transferred, students would have the same expectations.

9. APPROVAL OF SECONDARY HANDBOOKS (Continued)

A. CHS, LLHS, and VHS
B. LLMS and VMS

Dr. Romero stated that they had the same thing happen with Los Lunas High School, Valencia High School, and our Century High School. It also made sense about how they went from becoming a middle schooler to becoming a high schooler, and had that alignment there also. With that, he turned it over to Dr. Elder to talk a little bit more about the work that was done, and how they came to the updates for the secondary handbooks.

Dr. Elder stated that as Dr. Romero had just talked about, they were looking at tighter and tighter alignment across our schools, at all levels across all three high schools, as well as, the middle schools, and looking at those transitions between high school and middle school, to make sure they were in alignment in terms of school policy.

Dr. Elder said she would give them some of the highlights at the middle school level. The middle schools had worked very closely together to align their handbooks this year. Some of the changes that they would note were things like, they added a whole section on cyber bullying that did not exist before. Obviously, that was out of necessity, because it was 2022. They did add some language around visitation procedures, starting with conflict resolution at the most direct level. So if a parent had a question of the teacher, they spoke to the teacher first, before going on to others in the school. In addition, they added the request that families make an appointment with administrators ahead of time if they requested a meeting.

Dr. Elder stated the reason for that was, as Dr. Romero talked about, their leadership development this year, more and more, they were trying to get principals and assistant principals into classes during the school day. Teachers were starting to get more and more accustomed to that. And that was the way they were going to improve instruction, and thereby improve outcomes for our students. In order to make sure that principals were able to manage their time appropriately, they were asking that families give them a heads up, or at least request a specific time to meet ahead of time.

9. APPROVAL OF SECONDARY HANDBOOKS (Continued)

A. CHS, LLHS, and VHS
B. LLMS and VMS

Dr. Elder noted that the schedules in both the middle school and the high school handbooks were up for a little bit of tweaking. They had to get them out in the handbooks, but they were still working with transportation on bus route beginning times and ending times. She asked them to please be aware that what they saw a draft, and that the draft handbook they saw may have some slight tweaks.

At the high school level, there were very few changes, the most notable being parent notification of any materials, especially around human sexuality, that parents would be notified and would have the opportunity to opt their students out if they so chose to, which was their right as parents.

Dr. Elder stated that she though that just about covered it. If there were any questions, she would be happy to answer them, or call on those who could.

Mr. Smith stated that the item was his discussion item, and part of his questions, she had already answered. That they be somewhat synonymous with each other, regardless of high school and school district, they had the same rules. Mr. Smith confirmed that Dr. Elder had mentioned that that they were in draft form. He then told President Garcia that it was going to take him just a couple of minutes on that.

Dr. Elder responded that the handbooks themselves were finalized. The actual minutes within the schedule might require a little bit of tweaking based on transportation needs.

Mr. Smith said he guessed his question was, by what date did those handbooks have to be ready? What date did they have to be approved by the Board? He said he would hope that both himself and Mr. Giron would be given ample time to review them, which they had not. He asked if they had to be approved that night, or could they be approved at a later date?

9. APPROVAL OF SECONDARY HANDBOOKS (Continued)

A. CHS, LLHS, and VHS
B. LLMS and VMS

Dr. Elder stated that because they were digitally distributed, and added she was looking toward the high school principals to help her affirm that. She thought they could give them the month, and then vote on them next month. It was not the old school days that they had to get them to the printer three months in advance. She felt that they could push it back to get an approval for next month if it served the Board’s purposes.

Dr. Romero stated that he was perfectly okay with it being put off a little while.

Mr. Smith stated that he would be happy to put that in the form of a motion.

Mr. Smith moved, and Mr. Vickers seconded, to table Item #9. A. and B. APPROVAL OF SECONDARY HANDBOOKS - CHS, LLHS, and VHS and LLMS and VMS until the next board meeting, June 21, 2022.

Mr. Giron asked for discussion. He asked Ms. Garcia about Item #9, had it been before them this last year? She responded no. Mr. Giron said none of this was presented to them? No? Ms. Garcia asked, Mr. Vickers and Mr. Bennett if she was mistaken. They responded no.

Mr. Vickers stated that he had the same concern that Mr. Smith had. He did not know if it was his fault, but he had not had the opportunity to review them. He added that, that was the kind of thing that hit students and families directly. They (the Board) were the ones that were the final approval, and he did not feel comfortable voting for it until they had reviewed it.

Mr. Smith stated, that, he wanted to make it perfectly clear. He knew that they did a terrific job. He just wanted to read it. He was sure they did an amazing job. He then thanked them.

Ms. Garcia called for a vote with the following results: Bruce Bennett – yes; Eloy Giron – yes; Bryan C. Smith – yes; P. David Vickers – yes; and Tina Garcia – yes. Motion to table the secondary handbooks until the June 21st board meeting passed: 5 -0.
