This is part 2 of a 3 part presentation by Principals to provide Trustees with an over view of a three year blue print to "re-image" their schools. As part of "Moving Capo Forward", these schools are going through an educational makeover designed to attract students to schools with declining enrollment and prevent the District from having to close schools by providing each school with a new educational focus.

At 1:09:54 Trustee Alpay makes the comment that this is just "Marketing Gimic" - changing names to "Academy" without changing anything of substance - just a con job. Money can be better spent elsewhere.

at 112:29 Professional Development is a growing business in Education. CUSD has a vision of having it's Principals and Teachers go out to other schools and use these "re-imagined schools" as a model for the rest of the schools in the district and across the State. The District has a "vision" for being a national leader.
at 112:50 Trustee Hanacek
How would you grow this piloted concept?
CUSD would be bringing staff from other schools in to be trained at CUSD.
at 115:30 Trustee Pritchard
Have you thought about presenting this at other National Conferences so that other School Districts can benefit.
at 116:42 Gila Jones
Maybe would could see if any local colleges would want to have a doctoral student study this pilot.

At the September 28, 2016 Board meeting Trustees approved a contract with Album Agency dba Album Creative Studios Incorporated re: "Re-imagine Schools Branding Proposal". The contract amount is $24,900.00 (Stated Estimated Amount is $55,600.00 - Contract states no more than $80,000)
CUSD is hiring Album Agency dba Album Creative Studios Incorporated to "Provide various communications and marketing services, including Re-Imagined Schools, strategic sessions on campus, reviewing existing profiles, designing a bi-fold brochure improving existing School Loop websites and optional ongoing design for promotional materials".
On May 11, 2016 the Board was asked to revise district policy regarding renaming the schools and potentially adding the word “academy” came back before the board on May 11. However, trustees determined that a new policy was unnecessary due to the board’s current ability to rename schools. The board voted 6-1 to table the item indefinitely.
