CUSDWatch Comment by Dawn Urbanek - THIS WAS NOT PART OF THE BOARD MEETING
CUSD always states that it is in declining enrollment which means CUSD will be receiving less money. However, if you look at Ed Data it shows enrollment is actually growing.
CUSD is actually having to educate a larger number of students (enrollment is increasing). However; for purposes of ADA enrollment is declining because a greater number of students are enrolling in Charter Schools who can accept enrollment from outside CUSD boundaries.
The following is e-mail correspondence between Clark Hampton and myself regarding the issue of Declining Enrollment.
Clark Hampton's Response:
All cash strapped school Districts will fight Charter School enrollment because it means less money for the District.

CUSDWatch Comment by Dawn Urbanek THIS WAS NOT PART OF THE BOARD MEETING
The LCFF limits K-12 public funding to 2007-08 levels + Inflation. That means that even with Prop 55 being passed, it is the intention of the State to limit funding to 2007-08 levels + inflation and that level of funding will not be reached until 2021. By 2021, CUSD will have had flat funding of under $8,300 per student for 14 years straight. That is why the State is expecting Local Governments to find new revenue sources if they want to improve facilities, restore programs, reduce class sizes. In 2007-08 General Fund Revenues were $103 billion today they are over $123 billion. The State has the money to adequately fund K-12 public education but is Choosing not to so that "Surplus" revenues can be used to create new programs and entitlements that are not constitutionally mandated. If local municipalities do not correct this- there will be massive municipal tax overburden. In the November election 187 of the 206 school measures passed representing $50 billion in future property taxes. Thanks to the oversight of local City Mayors and locally elected leaders taxpayers were able to defeat CUSD's $889 billion dollar school facilities bond. Without continued oversight, students and taxpayers will be abused by CUSD, and the State.
