"Or South. Which one do you think about it? Well, not this. Well. I have no idea what that is coming from, But it's well, You know, It's one of those kind of days you've got, like 11 teen different programs running. It's like Slightly. One of them's gonna gonna get weird. It was that one. All right. Dr. Veronica Garcia joins us Now She's a superintendent sent a public schools. How have you been? How were your holidays? Very quiet. It missed just my husband of himself, and that was the two of us. No guests, no family, So it was very different. But we had a merry little Christmas and Wonderful new year and got a lot of face time. And I'm soon Decompress a little bit. I was able to decompress, you know, apart from most you media, Cool Wilson, a few covert cases and, um other than that, it was it was calm. I was able to be compressed and And think, you know, and get ready for this new year, which I'm very excited about. That I call you. Did I bug you? Don't think I did. No, no, you all right? I thought you were talking about me. Alright. So today's kind of the end of the the approved plan, right? Yes, And I had made a commitment to let people know what we were going to do. Um, by today and I am the board meeting and it was in the new Mexican today. That We are not coming back in two weeks, you know, which might have been a possibility because the public it department allowed for district that opened in hybrid regardless of their county status. To open back up from K three anyway, and special education students. And, uh, We could, um, could have open. However. Um, I'm not sure that we have enough information about this variant. There is preliminary information out that it seems to be Hot more readily, but you know, not more so but by younger people, people but by Children and That was not is prevalent right that information before with First Colbert unknown 19 virus that we knew about so this variant has added a new dimension. S are waiting for more information. That if a county is still pretty high Yeah, I'm of infection rate. I also don't know We did not pull. We did have a town hall with volunteer cohort. And I think there's some hesitancy. We, um, submitted a letter signed by great Mayor Um, the N E, a president and myself to the secretaries of Department of Health and Public Education Department. And, uh, it was a C C to the governor's office that our board of education, asking them to prioritize the most who work with kids directly. So that would be teachers and counselors and nurses and principles and bus drivers that nutrition workers vaccination and Vaccinations and I did hear back from the secretary of at that they are working to try to get them prioritized. I know that there are many who believe that they are essential workers. And arm a key component to helping get the economy, you know, moving again and moving in a positive direction. So I hope you know, I mean, school is the best place, which is, I think we've done an amazing job of standing of a remote learning program, and we've put a lot of effort into professional development and social, emotional learning and whatnot. But then if you were a kid oh, that that moves in a district or an area of the city or county That doesn't have good access to broadband. I mean, you might have access to do this, but It made a big quality blood band. It's going to be difficult for you. You know we were gonna have if you have your Cameron on, you may have trouble speaking or you may have trouble hearing. And simple, Um, for many Children. It's frustrating to be online on Ben. We have people that live in parts. Of our community them even when, um much fun. It's not working because they don't have good cell service. Yeah, So you know, I still think that then the best point is the tennis team at school. Interacting with their peers, learning from each other and Iraq in with our teachers, you know, in the way that they used to all the support that they get at school, I'm clubs and counselors and being involved in sports and Um, just a daily routines. They're so disrupted and it's getting harder and harder on them. And we see that across escape, you know, great going down the enemy A took away the requirement. You know for G p a now during the pandemic. And it's because, you know, students. They're having a very difficult time connecting, and so I hope that sooner than later we can bring our students back to school. I promise to give people the two weeks notice. Um, I think if we could get people vaccinated, I e think we could accelerate returning. We're still probably return in a hybrid because we're still at a place we were being told that Even if you're vaccinated, you could still carry the virus. And so we want to make sure that we have are the safety protocols would still be in place and we return in hybrid format. But, um and you know, I'm cautiously optimistic. Maybe the second nine weeks. You know that that might be possible, possibly sooner. I don't know. I was going to follow the science and it's also possible you'll finish the you'll finish the year with the at home instruction. Having dad is possible to I don't want to do that. I really go on. But the numbers dictate the numbers of people vaccinated in the number of people with with infection. And and also more data from the CDC on how the variance of Children What? But we're ready. And then some good news. I mean, we have all of them expect systems are compliant. What we're going to be able to add an additional layer of protection. We received $300,000 that are going to go to air purifiers. And so that is going to Adam. They're there for protection. You know, to our classrooms. We've done so much to ensure that we're ready at any moment to bring our students back to school. And I'm very proud of that. Mr. Okay, so What Well, let me ask you How much pushback How much gnashing of teeth have you heard from parents? I mean, it's been a short time school board meeting last night. Which, of course, would virtual have you heard from parents today? Are they just live it or they.

"Jump right in here. Doctor Garcia has limited time today, so we're not gonna waste any. Oh, it is 44 degrees right now. A little bit windy up feels like about 37 degrees. It's gonna be cold tonight about 24, then gradually warm up. Until we're back up to about 60 degrees next Monday 44 degrees right now, here in Santa Fe Breaking news from Senator Stilled with Dr Veronica Garcia, superintendent. Good afternoon. Good afternoon. How are you, Richard? I am good. All right, Lay it on us. What's new? What's going on? Well of the pandemic is raging and surging. The numbers continue to grow in Santa Fe County and the surveillance testing, you know, within the district. You know, has Shown us that we've had a couple of positive cases that were asymptomatic. Staff was concerned. I heard from my principals and teachers that after Halloween they heard of sleepovers and parties and people took a treating, and we're concerned about Thanksgiving. And people having plans to travel or have family over gatherings had requested that we closed two weeks after Thanksgiving just to be on the safe side and then do the same in December. You know, after the holiday? Well, we only have one week of school. In between. It wouldn't make any sense to bring the kids back and with the numbers for their at and more staff expressing concern While we decided that it was prudent as we prioritize the safety and well being of our students and faculty and staff, as we always do to put a hiatus. Give parents a week to plan for next week. We are to them to keep him home. But if they do have child care issues to go ahead and send them next week, we didn't think it was wise to come Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving. And so next week will be the last week of the voluntary hybrid program. It is on hiatus. When we return in January, we will see what guidance there is from the P E. D. Otherwise, we will wait two weeks after we come back, and then if we're allowed to AA and they're still interest, we will resume the voluntary hybrid program. Unless there is guidance from the P D that we go into full hybrid or that we stand remote, and right now we're not clear our plan. Was on Ly approved. You may remember Richard through December. 31st. Alright. So once again you're announcing today that starting Ah, week from this Friday Friday the 20th. Unfortunately, this Friday the 13th You can't start anything on Friday. The 13th No, you cannot. So on Friday, the 20th you will switch from Ah hybrid. 2 100% remote learning correct. That is correct. And I give parents who were participating in the voluntary program an opportunity and all this not lost. You know, I got a long email from one parent who was very upset with me. I felt like, you know, we had closed the door to a past forward, and that's not really act totally accurate. We've learned Ah, lot from this in terms of our protocols seems to be working. You know how we get kids on and off the bus is how we feed them in the cafeteria. How we get him off to recess. Teachers giving us feedback of how working in a hybrid format, you know, teaching kids in person and online at the same time how that was working so well, we've got we get learned a lot, and we're going to survey the faculty and staff and families who were on the hybrid model. So that when eventually we're going to get to go into hybrid. You know, I am hopeful And when we do, we will have learned a lot. This was a great beta test. All right, from page of the paper today. I also care. Ah covered the story last week. Superintendent Story today by jail Baron Senate. They published little failure rate spiking. Basically that all kids who can earn a bad grade Ah, third in school that does give grades have at least one f Yes, And that's a statewide problem and a national problem is well. What we are doing is Looking at the data more closely with our principles and then with the teachers to really identify what the issues are with certain students so we can mitigate them. Is it that You know, While they may have Internet access if you don't have good broadband, it doesn't work. Well, so it wasn't a kid activity issue. Is it that the student doesn't have a good place to work at home? Right? Are there a lot of distractions? Can we work with the family? To help improve that. So you know that there are a variety of reasons. We also need to look on our side. You know how the instruction is being delivered. Are we seen a trend is happening Maurin elective classes or classes that should be more hands on So, for example, a welding class, right? You might be very excited and engaged in working well in welding when you could come in in person, But learning about it. Theoretically, online might not be your cup of tea. So it's not a one size fits all problem. Nor is it a one size fits all solution. So we really have to see what is prompting, Um you know, but why? Why is why is this failure rate increasing? Now, the nine weeks grade, oftentimes is a wake up call for some students that Oh, I may not earn credit right? And the nine weeks grade is the one that really Makes it or breaks it for you in high school, whether or not you were in credit, and typically we see improvement, but we're not going to sit on our laurels. We're really going to focus on this and and in a particular focus on seniors. A swell but to ensure that you know our kids our kids do finish into graduate there. Maybe classes that just don't translate. Don't do well online, maybe science classes or terrible or maybe English classes. They're terrible. Or maybe math is not something you can teach on a whiteboard. It depends on the subject and the teacher and the students. There are so many variables and you know, I'm curious, you know, for example. Classes that are more hands on. And students who tend to choose those classes that are more hands on are probably not going to enjoy it as much online or you know if they don't have The proper materials or support that they need at home. So you know, in Richard, it is a complex issue and one that You know, we've got to do our best to address but we weren't set up to be an online district. And I think we're doing great as Faras. You know what with the cards we've been dealt with, and with the tools that we have, but it is by far from ideal, And I think you know I have the team right now looking at this. Hybrid schedule. Should we go into that or even how we're doing remote? Is this optimal? Do we need to look at how we break up time a little bit.

"Number one is the current air quality. Even though we have a fire up in your towers, which is 0% contained last I heard it's not blowing this direction. Okay, Doctors crazy and the governor and her panel virtually doing the press conference right now, just going through all the numbers and all the rolling averages and all the positivity rates. On all of that stuff when she gets to what you're going to do or not do we'll try and go live. If not, I will take no. Join us now. Dr. Veronica Garcia, Superintendent, Public education, Santa Fe Public School. Dr Garcia, thank you for your time today. Oh, hi. Looks like I'm competing with the governor. So no, you're not competing. Maybe somebody listening? Yeah, he's gonna be announcing today. Everybody's wondering that. So what's the latest instead of a public schools? You know, we hear Ah, well, some new regulations, some new ideas with all these horrible numbers, maybe new figures we have to look at or delay into having students in person learning. Well, it's a complicated answer. Unfortunately on again, I don't know what the governor is announcing today that will impact public schools. Ah, we received a letter from the secretary of education after the governor's recent health order. That on daybreak schools into different categories. Santa Fe public schools was in a category where We had plans to go into hybrid and had already made the announcement that we were going into hybrid. We were going into a modified hybrid and that we were bringing back only Ah, staff who volunteered and families, the teachers who might want to come back and this is just for elementary. We were not allowed yet to bring back middle and high school. And ah We had A good Kadre of volunteers. We lost. About 14. Over the last couple of weeks because of the numbers going up. But we intend to open on the 26th of October. Now here's the kicker. Even if we're in a red, write a Red County, we would still be allowed to open, bringing back cake. Three k through third grade. And AH Special Education Special education program. Um So we're moving ahead. We're ready to adapt either way, but we feel this is a great opportunity to come back in a very small scale. To make sure that our protocols all look, we feel that schools are very say we are public schools are so regulated and now during Covic, you Mexico public schools. Are probably at the top of the list and turns the precaution. From H back systems to you know how far apart death needs to be two plexiglass to mark spaces. For example, our kids will be sitting 9 ft apart. Um Mass will be required at all times. And, you know, there's just so many different things that we have in place that I feel comfortable that schools are probably safer than going to the grocery store or church or any other place that is not regulated As with full sun And we'll see how it works. If at any point were concerned about spread in the school right then of obviously we have to close and And disinfect and put not now what we have positive cases were having positive cases now, Um, but there has not been spread. And the contents. Tracing has been telling us that people were not acquiring it on side. Even when people have been exposed. They have not caught it because of the good protocols that we have in place. So I am cautiously optimistic that we will be able to begin with a very small scale. We're going to start 1 to 5. Hybrid mom coming this Monday. Small scale 1 to 5 students are first through fifth grade. Or was that was a creak a pre k through third grade. Pre k well, depending as of today at this at 1:35 P.m. pre k through sixth, say six. Great if you're part of an elementary if you're part of a middle school that no It has to be a self contained classroom, and it's a hybrid, so only half of the roster would be there at any given time. Two days a week. But we're starting with only 52 and applied to one ratio. If everything home as it is of today, now at 1 36 PM Alright you talked about about positivity. Have you had positivity outside of contractors? Ah, Have you had positivity in terms of instructors or staff? And I think there was one student Senate for high school but who had not been on campus. Correct Now, we I'm sure there are people that have gotten its staff or students that we only report are only made aware of this. They are actually on campus. And I think it's only been one student, possibly to. Um and He has had a faculty and staff and contractors. I think a total combined maybe 14 or 15 marks. And in all instances, it appears that it was contracted outside of work. You know where they were able to trace it. And when they have exposed other people, people, the people that have had to quarantine also did not get it. And I could be that, too, are thankyou protocols that ensuring that people are Murray masks desisting. Washing their hands. I mean, those protocols work If people follow it are our guest. Dr. Veronica Garcia Super intendant of public education, said five over school, eyes it up to Pedes it up to the Environment Department and the rapid response update. Who's it up to? Ah, day to day when you Staff testing our students testing positive. Is it up to them to rapidly respond or is it up to P e D or is it up to Santa Fe public schools?.

In my opinion, you know, kind of Praying a little bit hoping a little bit and Just please. The numbers go down. As the numbers continue to climb slightly lower over the weekend. Nothing to get excited about. We're still one of the worst three states in the country. So the story I found on the weekend I forgot to do on Friday was that Northern Island? Also seeing a an increase in covert cases. Now, you might think Northern Ireland you might think I'm a Guinness Irish whiskey. And you'd be right. Northern Ireland. They saw a spike. So what do they do? I mean, you think you're feeling a little bit of pain and pocketbook. You're feeling a little inconvenience. It can't stand at the bar and swill down your favorite adult beverage. More than Ireland. They closed 1200 pubs They closed. Not that not at 10 o'clock at night. Because we all know the covert After 10 o'clock is, you know it's not contagious anymore. Not nearly Nearly as infectious after 10 P.m.. But in Northern Ireland, they said, no, no, no, no. They closed 1200 pubs in a country that must drink. To survive. Both economically and Psychologically. So you think you've got a man? Put your wine and quit your quit your bitchin.

Wish I could say it in Mandarin and In Russian, but those air really hard Ah, Uncle Tio Loco President T Loca. And foul chief found cheese and a disaster. Anyway, So I found this story of the weekend. Michael Post her home. Renowned infectious disease expert. Said on meet the press yesterday. That the Knicks next give me the next 6 to 12 weeks. Are going to be the darkest of the entire pandemic and expressed concern that the U. S. Lacks a leading voice to guide the public. Now. Also on meet the press yesterday was Secretary of Health Alex Cesar and talk about a lack of leadership of the top good Lord. Next year, and even then, according to half of the US population at this point About half of the US population at this point, is skeptical. About a vaccine. If we had a vaccine, would you take it, But half the country is like Aah! Ah, you know, so that's where we are. That's kind of how we're acting. Ah, I don't know what to do What you want to do Close the bar. They'll try. They'll close the bars at 10 o'clock, see if it helps at all. Well, Mr Poster home. Who is an infectious disease expert. Says that ain't gonna help vaccines will not become available in any meaningful way until early To the third quarter of next year. Vaccines will not become available in any meaningful way until early in the third quarter next year at the earliest. And even then, about half the U. S population at this point Skeptical of even taking the vaccine, he said director of its Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy and University of Minnesota Roaster home pointed to the daily toll. Of 70,000. Nuke over 19 case in the U. S Friday. The highest level since July. Queen. Now the holidays, the number of covert 19 cases in the U. S will likely Quote, blow right through them. Unquote. That's T 70,000 today, he's stressed. One reason for concern is that there are a number of voices. Guiding the public instead of just one. Which he said is quote part of the problem, Unquote. There is more than just science. He says. This is bringing people together to understand why we're doing this. This is FDR Fireside chat approach. And we're just not doing that. Referring to the You know, FDR. Evening radio addresses during the Great Depression. Motorhome said the goal is to achieve hurt if the goal is to achieve herd immunity.

The expectations are different for the teachers and for the students as well because we have very different directives from the P E D the 1st 9 weeks. Be the 1st 19 weeks the first time we went into this, and we had very little time to stand up to the system. And so you know, we were told, you know, just get the kids used to learning online, You know? Don't make it too restrictive. Really Limit limit limit screen time. Don't have grading, etcetera, etcetera. And so there were some. You know, we did do great. That was something that we decided as a district we wanted to do. And I'm happy that we did to be honest with you. But, for example, teachers were allowed to use whatever platform they were comfortable with. You know for their learning mansion assist system, but that meant for many students and families is that they might have one child having to navigate several learning platform. Or if you have three kids at home, you know they would all be on different platforms and it was confusing and difficult for them. This year we have provided are providing a Zeiss speak. Intensive professional development for our teachers. So the Children pre K through second grade will all be on a seesaw learning platform on campus. And third grade to 12th grade will be on campus open access. And so one platform. What place for attendance. One place to put your assignments. You know, everything will be in one easy place. Ah, lot more training for everyone about utilizing You know that the technology the curriculum, the curriculum and instruction team has developed for weeks of lessons for the teachers, too. Especially in the core content areas that helped ensure that the kids will get, um you know their standards met, you know, in this school year. We will have a regular schedules last year. It would might be that a teacher might you know video lessons, and then the kids would come back and then turn in their homework. Now that they have to have what we call synchronous, which is face to face video time. Um, you know, at prescribed times of the day elementary, middle and high school kids will have a regular schedule so that they know every morning. You know, we have, um, you know, check in time with you, Bubba Block, So you're taking it out and so forth. Oh, attendance will be taken daily. Yes, okay. Have fun. We're also planning fun in there. And a lot of, you know connections because the teachers the kids don't other teachers is here right? Those relationships were established last year. But and I would say 85% of the cases, kids will have a new teacher. Oh, well and so right and so developing, you know, those relationships online requires a different set of skills, so we've given the teacher's lots of tools. To address this or tools for our counselors to and working with our kids because they need to support Dr Veronica Garcia's is our guest superintendent education SNPs. School starts a week from Thursday. All right, couple More serious Saturn out. Ah, we lost another public school student to gun violence. Ah, you are asking students take a gun pledge. So talk about that. And we had Richard wide on earlier from Gerard's house, and you guys reached out to drawers housed for help with the grieving process as well. Ah, how is that going with with the students and teachers? Well, it's just a couple of questions in there. Yes, we are asking, you know, we've done this. In the past. We've partnered with Mexico Mexicans against gun violence, and but we're upping those efforts Right now you can get the pledge online again at our Web site. But just, you know, bringing consciousness to the fact that we want, you know young people to make that commitment that they're not going to solve problems using guns that they think there might be a problem. I know that they report it. We have a nap. See something? Say something that we've had in place where students can anonymously report anything we can do to prevent the kind of tragedy that happened recently. And so it's aged, appropriate the pledge. So for middle and high school, it looks a little bit different than it does for the our younger students. But we ask everyone to be careful, you know, around the adults. Terms of access to guns also in their homes. So, yes, and then in terms of Gerard's house, we are very grateful to them for ours for their support, especially when we're not in school and we don't have our counseling staff. On board, but we have great relationships with them with Sky center with PMS. I know I'm going to leave somebody out. But, yes, Students and staff have taken advantage of this's still friends support. This is still fresh in a lot of stuff. Those services those services those counseling services still available, Correct. Oh, absolutely. And for some kids that may not be till we get back to school or even, you know, six months later, some people have no respond to grief in different ways. And so you know, Yes. There is help there. For people to help processes and provide them the emotional support that they need. It's been very hard on staff too. You know, people get very attached to these kids. They've known them, some of them, you know, since they were little and have, you know, it's like they were like our family and it's been very tough. It's been a very difficult summer. For us in terms of the losses. Alright. You had one more staff contract his staff test positive for cocaine. 19. Tell us about that. Yes, we've had now. I think it's our fifth or sixth case, uh, in the facilities in maintenance department contact Tracing has told us that the exposure's air happening outside of work and in certain social circles, right? And then when they come to work, and if people are exposed to them, they have to then quarantine for 14 days. So right now we have three people quarantine because of the exposure. Not that they've tested positive. And one positive case. And so I again urge everyone just We heard the bear during that spot. You know where your math lament What? You're no limit your socializing, you know? Keep social distance, You know, wash your hands. We all have to do our part. Teo stopped the fire. You know, Yesterday the numbers came down after we off the air usually come down around for maybe a couple of minutes before maybe a couple of minutes after I didn't get a chance to toe yesterday to talk about the numbers, but the numbers were way down. The number of new cases were 130 which is half or, you know. 2/3 of what had been the last few days. And in Santa Fe, the number of new cases was down back into the single digits back down to five. So the trend the direction is good. We got to keep it that way, though. Dr Garcia, thank you to keep it that way. Come back to school. That's thank you. Thank you. Thank you for your time. Appreciate it. Absolutely. Take care. Bye bye. You as well Right. 51 minutes. Have two o'clock. We'll have a minute or two. When we come back. You wouldn't jump on the phone right now.

"Thirty four minutes after two o'clock our guest next guest is Dr Veronica Garcia superintendent public education center a public school Dr Garcia good afternoon yeah all right story in yesterday's New makes he can and front page story in today's Albuquerque journal entries sought LFC committee Kobe nineteen resulting in up to a year of learning loss we had on senator sold yesterday to talk about the task force to to bring that schools and all of that and so this is good timing first of all address the story is in the journal yesterday and the the new Mexican yesterday in the journal today about the LOC and losing a year of learning well you know I I I looked out there the report that was put out and I think these are based on statistical modeling by and WBA that does some of the short cycle assessments in New Mexico I'm having trouble getting my head around the full year of loss because we didn't goal for Santa Fe anyway we only route a week beyond spring break because we were ready to get started again now you could question how much progress tickets make between the middle of March and the end of may but so I don't know for a whole year that is somewhat puzzling with that said we did some things a little bit different in Santa Fe than the rest of the state thanks to the voters is that if a county all of our students had iPads and Chromebooks that our teachers have been trained in using technology we get a week of training with our teachers and how to change in this new system with that said the state had recommended a pass fail we chose to go with grading because I felt like it would hold everybody a little more accountable and for the teachers to justify if parents had a question well how did you come up with a pass or fail it seems a little arbitrary and so we went with grading I think at the secondary level I think it kept kids more engaged they were actually getting a grade I know that in some places people said okay you're great can be lowered well in that case if you had an a or B. when you take your grade in run so so we went with grades we also I know that there was some mention and the the story that direction had been to rehash a material I never got that number they said to focus on key standards and that's what we did as for the the core content areas we pulled out the power standards and asked them to focus on those standards with that said I think that I was not intended to be a long distance learning program but to keep kids engaged in their learning if we go back to school in the if we have to use the remote learning format words this is something that parents launch in World Cup to provide it it will be redesigned and in the press release yesterday I could talk to the minute if you want what we're planning and looking towards it as if we do have remote learning or have it as an option it will be redesigned it will not look like what we had this spring we will be testing our kids when they come back to school using a short cycle assessment like the N. W. E. N. to see what skill gaps there are and as an entire district we're going to spend the first couple of weeks really focused on skill gaps and getting kids up to speed to try it or not Kelly make up all of that time no but there are a few key power standards that are necessary to do well the following great and so we definitely will focus on that let me ask a quick question here I'm sure this comes up when you're you know you go to go to college and you're good studying to be a teacher and then years and years and years of experience is there is there an accepted percentage an accepted way to say well you know over a summer a typical summer after a typical school year I know the average sixth grader is going to lose basically this is going to be you know drain out of their brain because it just I don't normal growth and maturation you're gonna lose this much skill it is there is there a way to figure that out is that yes there's been a lot of research on that it's called recruitment and retention okay and every mile of loses some over the summer the kids who lose more so our children in poverty because of parents who have means not only are they providing you know possibly you know summer tutoring or other kinds of activities but more in Richmond right and that in rich met whether it's going on trips or museums or libraries or whatnot help mitigate some of that loss in terms of building vocabulary and more experiences that you have contacts and that's where summer programming is stolen right right and we applied for extended learning program and K. five plus although the funding for K. five five plus with a cut we would like to offer extended learning this this summer but right now we're making an appeal to the secretary to be allowed to start later in July they want a closer in August which is too close to the beginning of our school year and would be difficult for me to implement I'm hoping they'll let us do it because I think those additional ten days can make a big difference for many of our students so you're making the appeal to the to it Kerry to secretary Stuart correct okay to us non stacked the letter should be going out at three o'clock today please allow us to started early with the extended learning program yes please find us for that all right and that was a lot of what the helices report was about right the discrepancy but in the diversification of income and and neighborhoods and cultures and all of that that some students would lose a year and other students might lose.

"Thirty three minutes after two o'clock three o'clock today we'll talk with Matthew McQueen who is running for reelection in the state house district fifty the centralized out all right okay to be on the show she mean email Richard at A. dot com Dr Veronica Garcia joins us now superintendent of education said of a public school doctor good afternoon how you doing good afternoon how are you I am well I am well knock on wood very happy healthy have a job all right all right so a little bit of an echo are you hearing an echo now I'm not here you sound good he's on our okay very good all right there's many things to talk about wasn't able to schools gives not in school of distance learning and all that but it all boils down to cover nineteen in the budget which is hitting everybody everybody in the pocketbook so how is ten people the schools going to deal with what he can do well first of all you know we every district is going to look a little bit different right based on whether they have declining enrollment or not did how their units check out and for the Santa Fe public schools we generated two point five million in new revenue and that's terrific except that the state mandated salary and create creases were about three point nine million the employer mandatory benefits one point four and on and on we had a decrease in the rate and so without the instructional materials that we have been cited for yet we saw we think that all I'm sorry but the phone just rang a miniature that all cut the deficit and so I presented to the budget the board of in the study session a balanced budget but that meant that I had to cut to make up that deficit right we have two point six million in new revenue and then I had to continue to cut the budget in order to be able to balance and sell some of that you know happen naturally because of less students in special education and general ad but we cut you know over almost close to two million in contracts and professional development and district supplies district FTP we did everything we could to keep cuts away from the schools you know where all the action is I mean our the backbone of the school district as in the classroom and in those in those buildings and so we did everything possible to not cut the school and to identify recurring expenditures that we could pay from from non recurring but non recurring revenue right right so we came up with the idea for a balanced budget it is a plan right right and now what's complicated is that we've received about two point six million from the cares act but with that said we're going to have additional expenses next year because of covert nineteen whether we're talking you know disinfection supplies he P. protective personal protective equipment are we going to have to run multiple schedules and whatnot you know I we don't know yet and and that's part of the of cers problem here doctors see is that a lot of this is just a guess we don't know what's going to happen we don't know if there's going to be you know a recurrence in the following all that so let me let me let's ask about about some of the cut for quickly here you said eight are you you've got some F. T. E.'s the paper reported that you're cutting eight staff members that you would basically lay off eight in ministry staff members have you identified those people we've identified generally speaking but the average salary is about though is that we would need to cut about eight FTP we have looked around to see if there's any place we can shift expenses can the cares that covers some of that but no we have not notified anyone yet the budget has not yet been approved so I can't really tell you who those eight individuals are but one is a vacancy that I did not feel on the admin side so that will help and actually routed the nine one we were able to move to a federal program and do it legally so we can Kashif from a grant and then now what I'm doing is going through and looking at contracts and look at what we can back filled with the carers act and also put aside money to deal with the shortfalls that we potentially will see next year so is it again you know you know when they say the old adage the budget is a plan right and then you work that plan however the legislative session is going to be critical the special session because we will come back in June and then make adjustments to this plan so for the F. T. easier left then ministration building are there any planned salary cuts including yourself dot org is there any salary cuts including myself right now we have not looked at salary cuts yet and I have not talked to the board about my contract okay so hard to plan arm the fall are you planning on students in classrooms in the fall I really don't know because of the cabinet secretary has put together a task force the re opening passwords and that committee our task force I hope will take input I'm sure it will involve the department of health and we will be given guidelines and so a lot will depend on the governor's health order and those requirements in the feasibility of being able to implement that there's so many factors to consider correct yeah if it depending on if they're going to have this keep them six feet apart are we going to and little things that people don't think about do you have choir do you do you sing in schools right because the paralegal that spreads more when people are thinking right so I mean this is not a lot of little things that people may be ordinarily don't think about that we have already begun our planning a contingency planning but the real directives will compete in the state also if you if you speak really loudly or if you yell so maybe principles can be instructed not to yell at students and hopefully they're not yelling anyway but you know kids playing on the playground right now I run clean in a holler for each other and IBM we've seen some recommendations that have come across the country and bring Melanie says they're eating in the classroom and they have does have negative impacts kiddos too right so it's just really tough and I think some parents are concerned about the inflammatory syndrome that some students are sick a young people are saying after having been exposed to cold it nineteen and so I know folks are the anxiety is elevated right now we are planning to do but you know we have a contingency see if we have to have a hybrid program if we're going to be remote learning again are we going to have to run multiple sessions to be able to meet certain guidelines so I'm hoping that this task force will complete its work as soon as possible but they're also working in the blind because we don't know what this virus is going to do over the summer or in early fall right right people have ideas that nobody knows for sure what about what about sports programs same thing I think asphalt in the same category all right so some people but I have no idea about anything I mean I can speculate but I have no idea but I do know is that graduation students have until June nineteenth to meet their graduation requirements for the seniors and we know that on shortly after if the health order has not changed we will have a virtual commencement for each school and we will have a drive through sort of parades where they can pick up their diploma and and then and whenever the students come back wouldn't everybody could come back and when we think is a good time for you know college students will be back so maybe during the fall break or winter break or next spring we will or maybe it'll be this summer I have no idea depends on the health order we will give them an in person graduation although president Obama said over the weekend and nobody looks good in those in those in those caps especially up people with like him with big ears so maybe avoid that now now you're encouraging students to get out and crews private all right so yesterday we reported Dr Garcia that the is that the public schools a year ago I had a graduation rate of seventy eight point one percent which is above the state average the the really amazing number to me is in the five year twenty fourteen twenty fifteen to twenty eighteen twenty nineteen that you've gained ten percentage points in graduation rates that's a big number it really is and it is testament to the hard work you know all the way down you know for every level to what we've got at the district level and you know I I've sent a message out to the teachers and the staff today thanking them for their hard work and I said you know it all started in kindergarten right fourteen years ago with those kiddos and the people that have supported them and everybody has affected their fingerprints on this did not took all of us to make this happen whether it's the board and the policies that they supported I did tell the board that we get tickets here a jet a dip the year after I was here because we tightened up on how kids could get their credit and not use a program that they could finish a whole semester in a couple of weeks right now I don't think we were doing them justice and so we we can open up a little bit and I said you're going to see a drop in the grad rate but it's going to pick up and it did we increase the rigour we have added programming a lot more project based learning a lot more options and I I I think that we will see another big job for next year this year we have really team very closely with the district and the staff in terms of tracking every single senior and I think we're going to continue to see it grow but whether it's that guy smiling face in the cafeteria or the friendly bus driver or a mentor or a coach or a counselor or that special adult in that kid's life all of us working together our community we have a tremendous community that supports our school and by the way we I asked to order signs and every senior will have a sign in their yard with your picture on it we're going to have banners on all of our sensors up in high school fences with the pictures of the seniors on it we'd like the the stadium lights every Friday at eight twenty which is twenty twenty and military ties doing all we can to honor our seniors but yes very proud of last year's cohort and the hot the special shout out to our high school principals and everyone at this high schools that have worked so hard I'm I couldn't be prouder because isn't that what it's all about is getting these kids graduated and and through but we want it to mean something we want them to be ready for college or careers Dr dot I think we're doing that Dr Veronica Garcia is our guest you pretend to believe that public education Santa Fe public schools or can you just take a minute and and talk to the people Santa Fe the parents the business people may not have kids but everybody has a stake in education and can you offer some reassurance or saw a positive message about moving forward on this really really scary uncertain time well I think they need to take comfort that we got to do a very rocky time in a very short period of time in terms of standing up an online learning a remote learning program and we were ahead of most districts across the state our students got a couple of extra weeks of instruction and I would say that we they need to take confidence that we will continue to plan and be pro active and we also want to get we've already done one survey we're going to do another one probably in July asking some questions that are important to the board and I want to know also how parents are feeling about coming back to school of what options they would like and to know that we put the students safety and well being whether it's during cold weather or other times has to be number one and also for our employees and that we would not will you know do anything to put them at risk that we will take every precaution we can and that we will stay in communication with them over the break I also want to give a plug to the superintendent's challenge and we will continue that over the summer break where students can enter in various categories and win prizes and anyone who would like to contribute to the superintendent's challenge please do so because it's been really hard for our students they don't have athletics they don't have activities they can't go out to the park they can't go to the rec center and superintendents challenge engages their minds in creative ways or they can enter by writing a poem or a story or an essay or create an art project to do a standup comedy routine or creative video or me or make sculpture out of legos or sound art I mean you know recycled items into categories are eligible even have a freestyle category and the participation has been tremendous but it's a way of keeping our kids engaged during this very difficult time my hat's off to go ahead go head to head now I have talked to our employees who had kids at home that they were managing and also you know do their work and I know it's been tough you know and and for all those you know it's central employees that have been out on the ground floor you know taking care of things and still try to deal with their kids who are at home I know it's been a struggle and I have to tell you the creativity the positive attitude of students parents families and staff really warms my heart Santa Fe is just an amazing community.

"Which is nice all right we're target occasion this area Dr Veronica Garcia superintendent of public education Santa Fe public schools if we didn't get to see you good to see you again Richard and Kate noble who is the president of the Santa Fe public school board amongst other things Kate always good to see you great to be here okay so Dr Garcia let's start with the obvious question public schools corona virus yes so the Santa Fe public schools is prepared but not panicked and we have sent information out to our families and the first thing that we want families to be working on right now is making preparations in the event that we are needing to close school based on guidance from the department of health based on incident figures in Santa Fe county that they have plans for who will watch their children we know that on a snow day it is always tough so I can just imagine that if school is closed for a week or two or I don't know for how long and when you probably won't be able to take them to the recreational centers or to private childcare because if we're close because of cobit nineteen or corona viruses people are just generically calling it they will have difficulties so make plans now folks you know if you have grandparents or aunts or uncles or neighbors or maybe you take turns you know one a friend you know you switch off and go to work right so make plans for that secondly we sent out guidelines on just good basic common sense hygiene as provided to us by the department of health and you know hand washing you just can't overstretched overstressed that and you know the elbow balm you know all the things that we can do to just keep ourselves safe just like we do during flu season however we at the district have been and do not come to work if you're sick that goes for employees that goes for children and that again is just common sense but we have been working on a what we what we do continuation of government that this would be a continuation of operations plan in the event that we have to close school how the district will continue to operate and how we will ensure that our employees are paid you know all all the debt there's so many moving parts to this but one piece that I really do want to stress and that is the feeding of children we have many children who are food insecure and I have assigned deputy superintendent Christy Wagner to work with a team within the district as well as reaching out to the city and other providers to ensure that we have a way of ensuring that our children do get meals but also do it in a way where they're not congregating grad school right but that looks like Dr well and you might be dropoff sites it may be the bus going to the neighborhoods and you know handing out the mails that they're bringing a plan back to me on Monday and then we'll discuss it I will get the information out the other is how you know during school we we looked at every possible way to provide distance learning while the students were at home but we ran into a variety of technical difficulties and equity issues and access and whatnot so we have been working to develop you know reading packets and books for kids to take home and for those who can access information online so that kids can keep up and and not be totally away from school but that time will need to be made up and as information becomes of available to us we will share those with our parents and for police as soon as possible could be a huge disruption education and therefore the family structure as well all the family plan all of it and for us to also ensure a mechanism that our employees you know the school people can make up the time but for district employees that they can still work and be safe and still be paid because the worst thing that we can do is have a disruption and pay for our employees is just adds insult to injury right and so we are looking at every possible scenario of how we keep things going in the event that we are told we have to close the district offices then we have also already identified key functions and how we will keep those operational so I mean the bottom line for your listeners is we are on it we are prepared we are not panicked but police planned families and parents in the event that school is closed who will take care of your children and if I may yes Dr Garcia is inching entertainment been talking to absolutely everybody about this and this is one of the reasons were lucky to have this superintendent she's done this before as a cabinet secretary for education so this is not you know inventing things from a blank slate this is somebody who is trying out a great deal of experience or was it sars when you were kept so it was H. one N. one two thousand and nine so it you know it she's she's been through this and is constantly iterating and improving for the different factors whether it be technology and the systems that we have but you know I just feel like we're really fortunate to have Dr Garcia and her experience and you know the way she can push the team and have conversations with the department of health in the city and the county and the hospitals and and you name it and you know we are I I think it's fair to say about as prepared as you can't be and see you know the clarity of the message that the big thing is figure out who's going to take care of your kids if we're closing school is you know a lot of experience and wisdom that has gotten to that sort of clear message that that is something that families need to be thinking about right it is it is and doctor Garcia you bring up the snow days and people I sometimes I still fall into that immediately what time is going to close today going to close early today I've even emailed your communications people and course they remind me with this and you know I hate ET idiot we don't close early they just write Haiti and I remember that they you don't close early because you don't want to say you will not send kids are home to an us unsafe home unsafe situation that has not been pre planned so wrecked yeah this will be entirely different this will be something that you have to send the kids home but the kids cannot be congregating in a public place correct can go to the library to use the computers you're going to be at home and they're gonna be stuck at home and you know it's going to be need to be a safe home with some educational things continuing Ryan support and Pat and I think you know we go back to the snow day and now people forget about it it's like childbirth while you're in it is hideous and then when snow is over with everybody forgets until the next no day right all right yeah it is but you're not painful but I what I want people to remember is that we have children in pre K. that are you know four years old and kindergarteners that are picked up on the bus and some of our parents can't pick up a robo call or a text message in the middle of the day when they're at work and that is the worst in my mind of having a little child get off the bus in heavy inclement weather nobody there or nobody at the bus stop to pick them up right or the wrong person there all right we'll take a break we'll come back story that's been in several different outlets and that I know has a gotten some attention we'll talk about what is equity what is going on with Santa Fe public schools when it comes to equity something that the president school board brought up during the debate about closing schools well well let's come up with a definition let's come up with a better plan they closing schools.

"Dining. Locked today. Our guest, Dr Veronica Garcia superintendent Santa Fe, probably both. All right. We'll come back a little bit to the education technology note. Sounds good. Why? And how people though now important it is bit all the changes all the changes this year because of the election in November the six with new governor new secretaries coming in. And I in office like the first day after she was inaugurated, the governor issued an executive order doing away with park testing. Did. You celebrate were you sad. What were your feelings about that? Well, first of all, you know, my reaction is that the governor keeps her word and keeps her promises because that was very big unhurt campaign that she listened to educators and people were not happy with park. I think there's only four maybe three states left that use park. I didn't know that. Yes, it had been dropping off dropping off over time. And so because of the tests, you know, quite frankly, if if you and I were to take the eleventh grade test, we might have a hard time. Let's just put it that way. And so I. A lot of states did not find that. It actually was a real realistic measure of proficiency. In English language arts and mathematics and whatnot. Now, many states have replaced it with their own state test. My understanding is that our new test, which we won't have this will have inter to mediary or intermediate test here between the two between the development of a new assessment. And this assessment will be given in April. But you know, one of the things that I did when I came to the Santa Fe public schools is we went on search of what is our north star. Because what I told the staff we have to get back to wired we in teaching and why is it important to us better.

He's skied. I go go back. We we share some battle wounds. And so we're always able to to get together and stories, and so it's fun. You've had an ad agency in Albuquerque and other cities in fact for how long that's going on nineteen years nineteen years. So I've seen the industry change so much. It's. It's so much more dynamic now it's ever changing and Scott hunting. And I were talking about his is his company has evolved. Mike has evolved quite a bit. And there's so many companies that are in our industry in advertising entrenched that are stuck in their ways. And they've become dinosaurs. Very very clearly. And so I always admire Scott, he's he's progressive in his thinking, he's always pushing the needle, and she in the envelope and admire that, and so I share a similar trade. And I'm always looking for trends that I want to keep the spars advertising in the forefront of the industry. And so it's always nice to get together and have lunch. If you need an ad agency is as far as dot com. You're in Albuquerque in well, we have offices offices in Albuquerque Houston in Raleigh, North Carolina. And you specialize in any kind of industry or you're pretty much. Yeah. We're a full service advertising agency. So we could do anything anything from websites to to television to radio, of course for any any industry vertical? I mean, we have we have. Clients that are in the finance category in healthcare category automotive must Potala. Yes. Okay. And you can you can do digital TV. You can do video you can do radio whatever people want you guys are there to do depending on what their need is. We do. All right. All right. We've been doing this for awhile. You love to talk about Super Bowl Super Bowl as the creative. Did not so creative the redundant really cutting ads. The controversial which we have every couple of years sub Super Bowl Sunday. And it is the patriots and the Rams like the game. Well, you don't care. No, I I'm not a big fan of either one give a football team. You are a fan. I you know, I like the New Orleans Saints. I like the Philadelphia Eagles. And so needless to say a little sour about the. But I would like to see the Rams play. You know, I think the entire country if you take if you look at a heat map of the entire country entire country outside of the Boston areas. Rooting for furthering Boston Kansas City, New Orleans all pull for the patriots. Rams. I guess right. That is so funny. It is funny. Yeah. It's it's a it's an interesting world. But I I think most of most of our country is they call it patriot. Fatigue know, there's just so tired of seeing the patriots in the Super Bowl, right which attests to how good they are. Guy. It's really how good the coaches and how good the quarterback is. I mean, those those two are incredible. Because they're they're cast of support has changed significantly.
