Councilmember talks about violence prevention through education

A Note From Berkeley District 5 Councilmember Laurie Capitelli

Dear Neighbors,
For some months, we have been faced with a seemingly endless barrage of violent images from within our country: a string of senseless mass shootings and most recently the bombing at the Boston Marathon. As parents, as community members, and as Americans we are faced with many questions: what motivates the perpetrators, why do these events happen so frequently and why are we unable to strengthen our laws to prevent more violence in the future (exemplified by the inability for the US Senate to pass some kind of gun control legislation).

Late in April I had the honor of addressing a group of Berkeley citizens actively discussing these questions. Organized by the Congregation Netivot Shalom, the attendees represented many different faiths but shared a common commitment to their community and to positive action in the face of all these questions.

My remarks included a personal anecdote about an old, dear friend. He had been a Richmond police officer for many years and too many times had been a witness to the destructive aftermath of community violence. In response to my frustration over the lack of adequate gun control, he said if people didn’t have guns, they would use knives. If they didn’t have knives, they would use fists. Wherever people don’t have hope there will be violence.

So our challenge as caring community members is to do what we can locally to end the cycle of hopelessness. As we all know, hopelessness can begin in many different ways and at many different times in people’s lives. I believe that ending hopelessness for our kids means, in part, access to a quality education. That includes resources and encouragement from us so they can be ready to learn when they come to school. City officials don’t control the learning environments, but we are definitely key partners in creating a supportive atmosphere with clear expectations.

2020 Vision, a citywide movement to ensure academic success and well-being for all children and youth growing up in Berkeley, has institutionalized that partnership. As an original member of its 0 to 5 years subcommittee since 2008, I have worked very hard to research tangible strategies that will insure that young children are ready to learn when they enter kindergarten.

My work with Berkeley parents also brought me to the Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs (ATOD) task force, a City/BUSD collaborative working group. For the past two years I have worked with parents, City and school district staff who are committed to creating an atmosphere where our kids are not only in the classroom but ready to learn once they are there.

As a passionate advocate for public education, I am a firm believer that the key to life-long opportunity is education. And if life-long opportunity is the antidote for hopelessness, we as a community must combat hopelessness by insuring educational support for our kids.
Regards,

Laurie Capitelli

Former BHS and B-Tech student, Olajuwon Clayborn, killed over the weekend

Tragically, another teen from our community was shot and killed on Sunday night. Olajuwon Clayborn attended Berkeley High freshman and sophomore years, B-Tech last year and was a senior at Castlemont High in Oakland this year. His friends, family and community mourn for him. There's a nice article sharing some information about Olajuwon and his interests in Berkeleyside.

This is another heartbreaking reminder that we must stop the violence in our community. One way to do that is to follow Pastor Michael McBride of the The Way Christian Center and PICO Lifelines to Healing and Rabbi Menachem Creditor of Congregation Netivot Shalom, both on University Ave in Berkeley. Both of these faith-based leaders do a lot of work to promote non-violence in Berkeley and beyond (including collaboration with Vice President Joseph Biden).

I encourage you to follow them online and find a way to get involved to help prevent more senseless tragedies like Olajuwon's death.

A reminder of where we were 50 years ago...

The 4 minute video below, set to Mavis Staples' "Eyes on the Prize," the unofficial anthem of the Civil Rights Movement, is filled with equally heart wrenching and inspiring images of the struggles to end racial segregation in this country. We've come so far since some of this - and yet we still have so far to go. Everyday, children and adults in our very own community are violated, threatened, suppressed and silenced because of entrenched racism. Let us watch these four minutes to remind us that 50 short years ago, people faced this overt racism and today, many of these challenges (perhaps manifested in different forms), continue. We owe it to our children and community to change this.

Julie Sinai appointed as new School Board Director

Last night at a special School Board Meeting, Julie Sinai, former chief of staff to Mayor Tom Bates, current director of local government and community relations at UC Berkeley and member of the 2020 Vision design team, was unanimously appointed to the vacant school board seat.

In her application, Julie wrote about her commitment to achieving equity in Berkeley Public Schools, something that I clearly feel needs to be one of our top priorities:





Listening to Julie's 3 minute speech to the board, I was most struck by how incredibly knowledgeable she is about the current strengths, challenges and opportunities facing the district. She mentioned everything from 2020 Vision to the BSEP parcel tax to the new superintendent. Several of the current Board Members commented that given that this is an 18 month appointment, it will be necessary to  have someone with experience of the district, as there isn't time for a steep learning curve.

You can read about last night's meeting on Berkeleyside: Julie Sinai appointed to School Board Post. A video of the meeting should be posted in the next week under "updates" for the May 1 school board meeting here

Congratulations to Julie and to all of the candidates for applying! I found it very humbling to sit in a full audience as 9 very qualified, dedicated individuals spoke to the board about their passions, experience and commitment to the students of Berkeley Unified.

Our Problem to Solve - Reducing Gun Violence in Our Community

Tyler Jamison's photo displayed at a recent B-Tech PTSA meeting
"In California, 355 people have died to gun violence since the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary. A significant percentage of these fatalities have occurred in the greater Bay Area."  This was the fact shared by the organizers of this past Sunday's community forum "Our Problem to Solve - Reducing Gun Violence in Our Community."   One of these tragic deaths was Tyler Jamison, a former student at B-Tech.

On Sunday, BOCA (Berkeley Organizing Communities for Action)  brought together faith-based and political leaders to talk about what we can do to end gun violence in our community. Speakers included Rabbi Menachem Creditor of Congregation Netivot Shalom, Pastor Michael McBride of The Way Christian Center and PICO Lifelines to Healing Campaign, Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, City of Berkeley Councilmembers Laurie Capitelli and Darryl Moore, and Lieutenant Ed Spiller of the Berkeley Police Department.

Following the forum, the organizers sent out the following email with helpful steps that we can take to help stop gun violence in Berkeley and our greater community.
 
*********

Greetings everyone --

Thank you so much for spending two hours indoors on a beautiful Sunday to think about how we can work together to reduce gun violence.  It really was gratifying to see everyone.

Our committed and passionate speakers presented us with an enormous amount to think about and a range of opportunities for action.  We'd like this email to serve as a brief recap of those options, and an outline of the ways in which we might work together going forward. 

Pastor McBride's framework of Proclamation, Policies, and Programs is a wonderful way to remember the three main ways in which we can act.  Here are some of the ways suggested by our speakers:

1. Help underfunded programs aimed at reducing gun violence, such as the Ceasefire program.
- e.g. show up at Alameda County Supervisor meetings when Oakland's Ceasefire Program is on the agenda

2. Support local programs that help underserved youth, such as Berkeley Youth Alternatives, Berkeley Young Adults Program, and Police Athletic League by tutoring, mentoring, donating money.

3. Hire a young person this summer through Berkeley's summer jobs program - Youthworks

4. Support state legislation to better control gun and ammunition purchases, e.g. write letters, emails, show up at the capitol and lobby members of the state legislature. Here's info on Assemblymember Skinner's AB 48 and Assemblymember Dickinson's AB 169

5. Support federal legislation by reaching out to family members, friends, congregations in states that don't have senators and representatives who strongly support and sponsor gun control legislation.

6. We'll let you know when there's an opportunity to phone-bank on various issues related to gun and ammunition control, and defeating congressmen and women in opposition to sensible gun laws. 

7. We'll keep you posted on a potential gun buyback sponsored by the Berkeley Police department and how you can help support it.

These are opportunities we can respond to as individuals and/or as a group -- as smaller groups, within our own faith communities, as a larger group, as we were Sunday, or aligned with a bigger local group, such as BOCA, Berkeley Organizing Congregations for Action.

However we as a group, or each of us individually chooses to respond, the list above can start as a basic starting point for outlining ways in which we can respond to the violence around all of us every day. 

Please let us know if you'd like to continue this conversation and plan for action with us. If you'd like to continue this conversation, and have ideas on next steps, please respond to this email.  We can certainly develop a list-serve/distribution list so that it will be easy for anyone to send an email to the entire group.  Like Roger said Sunday, these are just first steps, we're making this up as we go along, and we'd love to have you join us if you're so inclined. 

Best wishes,
Rabbi Menachem Creditor
Pastor Michael McBride
Andrea Altschuler

Discipline rates should not be predicatable by race

Sadly (but not surprisingly) there is a disproportionate number of students of color, particularly African American students, who are suspended in our schools: 259 African American students compared to 68 white students.  Berkeley Patch published the article "State Releases New Numbers on Suspensions in Berkeley Schools," including a helpful interactive graphic showing out-of-school suspensions by both race and offense. 

I feel sick to my stomach when I hear people make comments like, "Well, it's 'those kids' who are causing the problems." I refuse to accept that. Students of color continue to be victims of inequity in our schools- in Berkeley and across the country. I'm not pointing fingers and placing blame. I'm holding up a mirror and admitting that I am part of the problem. We need to provide all of our students with an opportunity to thrive- socially, emotionally, academically- in our schools. Right now, that's not the case and it's a huge problem- for our entire community.

What messages (subtle and direct) are we sending to students of color that they're the "bad kids?" Do they feel like they can reach their full potential in our schools?

There's currently a lot of work being done in our district to address the disproportionate rate of suspensions of students of color- The Broth-A-Hood program at Longfellow, the working group to accelerate the achievement of African American Students and equity teams throughout the schools who are trained by Pamela Harrison-Small, the ED of Berkeley Alliance (to name a few). We must continue to work together to keep this momentum going- not stopping until ALL students have the chance to excel in our schools.

Little Upstanders Make a Big Difference


Occasionally, I post about bullying and what individuals can do to prevent it. If students feel safe and welcome at school, they're much more likely reach their full potential. 

Thank you to guest blogger, Susan Raisch, an anti-bullying consultant and founder of Tangled Ball, for the following post.


 
 
Bullying prevention is complicated.  Sometimes it seems that it's bigger than all of us but it's not insurmountable.  We have an untapped army out there.  If we start training bystanders to start stepping up from an early age, we've got a shot at creating safe and caring school climates.

Read on.  We can learn from the pint-sized upstanders in this story.

I was talking to a mom of a six-year old yesterday.  Believe it or not, her first grader has been on the receiving end of true bullying behavior since Pre-K.  Everything from emotional manipulation to punching and kicking.

She admitted that in Pre-K her daughter was "a biter."  She didn't feel she could address this situation appropriately in Pre-K because she had to work on her own daughter first.  (Don't you love honest and realistic parents?) She was also a teacher before having children so she knew that what you do at home directly affects how a child acts in school.

Seems as if her own child matured beyond the biting stage but another little girl in her class didn't.  Now that they are in first grade, her little girl had already been this other girl's target for two years.  Once a light-hearted child ready and willing to go to school, my friend's daughter was having stomach aches.

The mom went to the teacher many times and although the teacher promised to keep an eye on it, the problem continued.  Like many bullying incidents, most of them were being done behind the teacher's back.

This seemed like a hopeless situation.  My friend was projecting a long and miserable school experience for her daughter.

The teacher was beginning to treat my friend like one of those moms.  She and the counselor started to blame the problem on her daughter being too sensitive.  (As my friend pointed out, anyone becomes sensitive after being mistreated for two years.)

What turned this bad situation around?  The little upstanders in the classroom.  Without "tattling," the other classmates set the teacher straight.  They told the teacher the truth.   Everything that my friend's child was trying to communicate to the teacher and counselor was true.

Then the principal stepped in.  She took the 6 year-olds at their word and the little girl was suspended for a few days. They're working on a strategy for the rest of the school year and next year.


Encouraging Our Little Bystanders To Be Upstanders  

Number One:  Make sure they know the difference between tattling and reporting.  The first is something you do to get someone in trouble; the second is telling the truth to make sure someone doesn't get hurt (emotionally or physically.)

Number Two:  Children know how to manipulate their parents.  Make sure they know that "telling" on a sibling or friend isn't cool if it's solely to get their brother, sister or friend in trouble.  Telling you about something that will be helpful to correct a situation is very different and should be encouraged.  (If you have siblings, I don't need to explain any further.  Most of us let a little jealousy get the best of us when we were kids.  That "green-eyed monster" is part of growing up but it needs to be called out.)

Number Three:  Catch them in the act of doing something good.  The children in that first grade class should be complimented for stepping up.  Of course, not at the cost of hurting their classmate's feelings (kids shouldn't be labeled as "bullies") but because they told the truth and it helped the situation.

Principals, teachers and counselors should be trained in nurturing little "upstanders."  It's called leadership.

Leadership is the anti-bully.

School Board Selects Finalist in Superintendent Search

Berkeley Unified School District
For Immediate Release

Board of Education Selects Finalist in Superintendent Search

(BERKELEY, CA) - After conducting an extensive national search for a new Superintendent, the Board of Directors of Berkeley Unified School District have unanimously selected a finalist for the position, Dr. Donald Evans. Dr. Evans currently serves as the Superintendent of Hayward Unified School District.

Source: http://www.haywarded.org/DrDonaldEvans
"After searching all over the country for a strong instructional leader who is the best fit for Berkeley, the Board believes we have found our next Superintendent right next door in Hayward," said Board President Karen Hemphill. "Dr. Evans came highly recommended from multiple sources, and we were even more impressed once we had an opportunity to meet with him and hear what his vision and experience could bring to our community."

In early February the Board retained the services of Ray and Associates, Inc. to assist in the search for a new Superintendent.  There were seventy applicants for the position.  The Board reviewed the top candidates, selected semi-finalists for interviews in late March, and narrowed the field to finalists in early April.  As part of the application and interview process, the consultants conducted a thorough and independent background check of each finalist.  Now that Dr. Evans has been unanimously identified as a finalist, the Board will conduct an additional in-depth review through a site visit of his current district before considering a contract.

"The Board has been quite pleased with the process, including the recruiting and careful vetting of candidates.  Our consultants listened to the Board, to staff, and to the community and created a clear picture of who would constitute a top candidate for Berkeley," said Board Member Judy Appel.  "We believe we have found the best person to be the next Superintendent of Berkeley Unified."

"It is easy for me to fully embrace Berkeley's vision because I completely believe in it," said Dr. Evans.  "Every day counts for all of our students as we prepare them for the skills they need to be competitive in a global economy.  I am very passionate about equitable outcomes for all students."

If hired, Dr. Evans would be expected to begin work on July 1, 2013.

*        *        *

Donald Evans, Ed.D.

Dr. Donald Evans is currently the Superintendent of Hayward Unified School District, where he has focused on the three Rs of "rigor, responsibility and results." He has also built strong relationships with community members and stakeholders throughout the city. These efforts helped lead to last year's passage of Hayward's Measure G parcel tax, which protects critical education programs (such as math, reading, writing, and science labs), enhances library services, funds technology and college preparation programs, and allows Hayward to better attract and retain qualified teachers. Dr. Evans has also worked with the community on the Hayward Promise Neighborhood Partnership, a collaboration with multiple local agencies to provide a continuum of cradle-through-college-to-
career solutions that includes both academic services as well as family and community supports.

Dr. Evans brings 26 years of experience as an educator.  Prior to being hired by Hayward, Dr. Evans served as the Associate Superintendent of Secondary Education in Compton Unified School District. During Dr. Evans' time in Compton, students made considerable academic gains, e.g., the middle schools saw an average increase of more than 11% in their CST scores in both Mathematics and English Language Arts after having stagnated for several years. Dr. Evans also brought in advanced high school courses and expanded the music program. In addition, his schools saw a reduction in truancy and in expulsion rates, as well as an increase in teacher retention and in proficiency rates for English learners.

Prior to his tenure in Compton, Dr. Evans served as an Elementary School Area Superintendent in Oakland Unified School District. (The position of Area Superintendent is similar to the position of Assistant Superintendent in BUSD; the primary job of both positions is the supervision of principals.) During his tenure in OUSD, he spearheaded the District's successful effort to implement all-day kindergarten. He also played an instrumental role in the professional development of elementary school administrators under his purview.

Dr. Evans has also served as a principal at Burckhalter Elementary School in Oakland before becoming an Area Superintendent, and, prior to that, as the first principal of the East Palo Alto Charter School in the Ravenswood City School District. In his one year leading Burckhalter, the school made the highest gains in English Language Arts out of all Oakland elementary schools; by the end of his two years at East Palo Alto Charter School, the school was the highest performing school in Ravenswood.

Dr. Evans began his teaching career in San Diego Unified School District in 1988 at Silver Gate Elementary School where he taught fourth, fifth, and sixth grades. During his 10-year tenure in San Diego he also served as a GATE teacher, a teacher coach, and a vice principal.

Throughout his career, Dr. Evans has focused extensively on curriculum and professional development. In San Diego, for example, he created the GATE curriculum for his classes. More recently, Dr. Evans has led numerous trainings on the conversion to the Common Core State Standards, with a particular focus on providing professional development to support administrators in the transition.

Dr. Evans earned his Doctorate in 2010 from the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley, in association with the Leadership in Educational Equity Program. His dissertation topic was on "Understanding Why Principals Leave or Stay in Challenging Schools."  He received his Masters of Education from United States International University, and his Bachelors of Arts from University of Delaware. Dr. Evans is originally from Lewes, Delaware.

School Board Vacancy

School Board President Leah Wilson recently resigned and the School Board is now working to fill the vacant seat, ideally by May 1 or May 8. In addition to their resumes, all applicants must submit answers to nine questions. While the combination of all questions will provide an extensive understanding of each applicant, I am most interested in hearing their responses to: "How does your experience and knowledge lend itself to promoting the District goals of addressing the opportunity gap and the 2020 Vision?"

It is critically important that the School Board select a new director who is fully committed to closing the race-based equity gap in our schools.

The full timeline and process is included in an update below from Director Josh Daniels.  All applications will be made available to the public via the Superintendents' office (but not online) and selected applicants will speak to the board at public meetings on April 24 and May 1. 

[Usted encontrará la versión en español de este correo electrónico a continuación.]
Good morning,
As you may know, School Board President Leah Wilson recently resigned from her position on the School Board.  She has been named the new Court Executive Officer of the Alameda County Superior Court and this created a potential conflict of interest.
Leah brought an incredible focus and passion to the Board and she worked diligently to ensure that BUSD was serving all of our students.  Her participation and insight made me a better Board member and made us a better board.  It was an honor to serve with her and I wish her the best.
At the School Board meeting on Wednesday, March 27, we approved the timeline and application process to fill the vacancy.  Applications are due by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, April 15, 2013.  All applications must be submitted to Deborah Turner, Secretary to the Board, by email (deborahturner@berkeley.net) or in person (2020 Bonar Street, Room 321).  Late applications will not be accepted. 
As always, please contact me or any other Board member with any questions.
Josh
