New Business

Mrs. Hubley asked to take the agenda out of order and moved to Item B, Parks Department Update.

Parks Department Update

Mr. Cassani presented his semi-annual update on school grounds and athletic fields. The extensive winter snowfall delayed the start of a number of projects, mowing began at the end of April. Cleaner Greener Quincy was tremendously helpful and it was very inspiring to see the students participate. The efforts in cleanup and spreading mulch was instrumental in getting the school grounds ready for spring. The Coddington Building landscaping was affected by the winter but has been restored.

At Snug Harbor, the courtyard and left hand side of the building have received special attention. Safety fiber has been installed at a number of playgrounds and equipment at playgrounds across the city evaluated for national safety codes.

At Broad Meadows, the History Girls project is culminating on June 24 with the dedication of the Passamagessett Knoll at Broad Meadows Marsh. Thanks to the students’ work and the guidance of teacher Ron Adams, we are able to acknowledge the earliest residents of Quincy.

The old Quincy High School green space project is one of the most ambitious ever undertaken. City workers have done 90% of the grading work and landscape designer Paul Franz has served as general contractor. Tree and shrub installation is underway, sod has been laid. Mr. Cassani thanked Greg McMillen for his efforts, the project should be completed within the next four weeks.

At Teel Field, the project is underway as of Monday, May 15. This is a very complex project, meant to address drainage and flooding in the neighborhood. Pre-load will take four to six months and turf will be installed next spring. This project is a longterm investment in the children of Quincy.

Therrien Field will receive an overhaul, irrigation, and new sod. All athletic fields will have been upgraded when this project is complete.

Mr. McCarthy asked whether Teel Field will be enclosed and locked as the stadium is and Mr. Cassani confirmed this. Mr. McCarthy said the open space next to Quincy High School will be a welcome addition, thanks also to Joseph Koch for his work. Mr. McCarthy mentioned that the back hill on Huntley Road is not consistently mowed and Mr. Cassani said that the summer help begins next week.

Mr. McCarthy said that the grass outside the principal’s office at Quincy High School has been an issue; needs irrigation or perhaps replacement with shrubbery or mulch. Mr. Cassani said this can be evaluated over the summer.

Mr. McCarthy said the playgrounds across the city all look great and there is tremendous use at all sites. Outside the schools, Adams Field and Mitchell McCoy are dusty, is there a way to adjust the irrigation schedule. Mr. Cassani said it was amazing how fast we went from too much moisture to the fields being dry.

Mr. McCarthy thanked the Parks Department for their work on snow removal. It was a tremendous effort, working with the Department of Public Works and school custodians, week after week. The efforts really made a difference in keeping school grounds, streets, and sidewalks safe.

Mr. Bregoli seconded Mr. McCarthy’s thanks. The winter was a monumental amount of snow. Looking around the city, there are so many projects to enhance playgrounds and facilities, and he hopes everyone will have patience. The end result will be worth the effort and the time invested.

Mayor Koch thanked Mr. Cassani for his leadership and patience with his interest and oversight in the department. The quality of parks and playground has been supported by the infusion of Community Preservation funds, and Mr. Cassani’s management. Mayor Koch said the plans are still developing on memorializing former Quincy High School English department chair Bruce MacDonald in the new green space next to the school.

Mr. DiBona said that the Parks Department does a great job managing the many projects and maintaining schools and parks to benefit our students.

Dr. DeCristofaro thanked Mr. Cassani for his responsiveness and relationship with all of the principals, Quincy Public Schools is in good hands with the Parks Department staff.

FY2016 Quincy Public Schools Budget

Dr. DeCristofaro and Mr. Mullaney presented a review of the proposed FY2016 Budget. Budget & Finance Subcommittee meetings were held on May 11 and May 18 to review both the expenses and subsidized services. Dr. DeCristofaro presented an overview of building, restoring, and expanding that has been possible under the budgets of the last few years. In the last few years, at least 20 Academic Classroom Teacher positions have been created, free Full-Day Kindergarten maintained and full-day Aides restored; Literacy, English Language Learner, Art, Music, and Instrumental programs have all been increased; Middle School Library and Technology and High School Health Interventionists restored; Middle and High School Advanced Placement, Middle School Foreign Language, Elementary School Library, Occupational and Special Education have all been expanded.

For Academic Support, positions have been added for Guidance, Psychologists, Attendance Officers, Special Education and ELL Aides, Extra-curricular programs at all levels, and Professional Development facilitators for Physical Education, Health, Music, Art, Speech, and Library. Non-academic support includes increased positions for Custodial Services, Office Aides, and Athletics. Academic Expenses include increased appropriations for repairs, screening and medical, testing, textbooks, and instructional equipment purchases. For non-academic expenses, increased funding has provided for the acquisition of vehicles and plant equipment.

As always, the budget process keeps students in the center. The Superintendent works with Principals and members of the Superintendent’s Leadership Team to identify areas of consideration and address possible areas of impact. The Superintendent requests School Committee input for creating priorities and options and then acts on those priorities to create a proposed draft budget and finalize it through discussion and public comment.

Mr. Mullaney introduced the FY2016 Budget of $99,259,723, a 2% increase over the FY2015 funding. The budget is made up of the Mayor’s appropriation of $95,587,723 and projected Circuit Breaker Funding of $3,672,000. This levelservice funded budget allows for QPS to meet all contractual obligations including percentage raises and step/level increases, cover the gap from the elimination of the Full-Day Kindergarten grant at the state level. The funding also allows anticipated increases in Special Education tuitions and transportation. With 16 professional staff members retiring, there is anticipated breakage of $584,000. The bottom line after meeting all current staffing and program requirements is $1,376,300 available for budget building.

Projected enrollment and trends are carefully analyzed to ensure that class sizes are well within School Committee guidelines. Recommended additions for the FY2016 budget are an academic classroom teacher at the elementary level, a middle school Technology Engineering teacher, two English Language Learner teachers, one Instrumental Music teacher, fully funding Kindergarten Aides in the QPS budget, increasing Special Education aides by 20 positions. Increased funding for Elementary School Extracurricular, Professional Development, Special Education tuitions and transportation, technology acquisition.

For Subsidized Services (Food Services, Athletics, Transportation, and Building Rentals), the recommendation is for all fees to remain as is for FY2016.

Mr. McCarthy noted that this is his last budget as a School Committee member. As always, the Superintendent’s Leadership Team has done a great job preparing School Committee, with information readily available. It has been a pleasure to work on these budgets over the years, especially those that restored and expanded services for Quincy Public Schools.
