CUSD Board Approves RESIGNATIONS/RETIREMENTS and APPROVES EMPLOYMENT OF CERTIFICATED STAFF (Teachers)

 

Starting Teachers are paid $53,444.00 + Benefits  

The highest salary schedule with Base Credential is $104,828.00 

 

Where is the CUEA/CUSD 2017-18 and 2018 -19 Contract?

This is the latest Published salary schedule on CUSDs web site; CUEA Contract July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2017 at page 80

This is also the latest Published salary schedule on CUEA's web site CUEA Contract July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2017 at page 80 CUEA's website states that the 2017-19 Contract is coming soon yet there has been no public disclosure of any contract negotiations from either party. 

 

How can regular pay for teachers exceed the salary schedule (by a lot)?

When you look at Transparent California, there are teachers that are making more than the highest salary listed in the Salary Schedule at $104,828?

There are to many pages to print See Transparent California if you click on the title "Regular Pay" it will sort from highest to lowest by regular pay.

How can so many teachers be so far above the negotiated salary schedule?

How does this effect their retirement? 

Are they adding "additional assignments" and "6/5th teaching positions" to their "Regular Pay"? 

Is this Pension Spiking?

 

6/5th Assignments 

CUSD spent $10 million ion 6/5th positions in 2017-18.

For the 2018-19 to date:

$ 84,800.00 July 25, 2018 CUSD BOT Meeting Agenda Item #43 at page 876

Professional Development

CUSD receives Grant money to fund professional development. ($5 million Teacher Effectiveness Grant) But every month CUSD spends the students "classroom money on Professional Development. CUSD does so much professional development that Teachers are effectively "Chronically Absent" from the classroom.

 

ASB Funded Teaching Positions

ASB funds are raised by students through ASB cards, fundraisers and ticket sales. The money is spent on student activities, including sports, clubs, dances and trips.

Paying for staff is the job of the district.

This items represents a $68,638.00 tax on CUSD students.

Currently these positions and pay represent $10 per unit.

Is the ASB effected by the minimum wage?

If so- when the minimum wage gets to $15 per hour students will be expected to increase ASB fees to $102,975.00 to pay for these same positions. 

That is a substantial tax increase... 150%

 

Why do Trustees approve employee compensation that reflects past employment?

This Agenda Item is asking the Board to approve employment contracts for work completed last summer?

 

Time to put resources back into the classroom.

Students deserve the education that taxpayers were promised. Fundraising and educational fees are out of control.

There never seems to be any money for books, class size reduction, restoration of programs and services. But there is always more money for employee compensation.

CUSDWatch Comment 

At the middle school and high school level, there are 6 periods in a school day. A full-time teacher teaches 5 classes of students and has 1 period as their "Prep" or "Conference" period.  Hence, a full-time teacher has a 5 period teaching load/6 period day. A teacher's annual salary is divided by 5 parts to determine the value of each period's teaching. 
 
A 5/5th assignment is full-time.
 
If a teacher agrees to teach an extra period per day, then they have a "6/5" assignment, meaning they teach 6 periods of their 5 period day.  This, by contract, gives them an additional 20% of their salary in pay. 
 
 
Appropriate Use of 6/5th teaching assignment:
 
The appropriate use of a 6/5th assignment is to benefit the student (planning, grading, meeting with parents, etc)
 
 
Inappropriate use of 6/5th teaching assignment: 
 
The district uses ETAPs and STAPs to fill in when the District does not have enough work or funding for an additional administrator.
 
 
ETAPS: Elementary School Teaching Assistant Principal
 
STAPS: Secondary Teaching Assistant Principal
 
STAP I:  Does not require an Administrative Credential. Helps with administrative duties in addition to their full-time teaching load. Gets a stipend of $1,000 per year.
 
STAP II: Requires an Administrative Credential. Helps with administrative duties in addition to their full-time teaching load. Gets a stipend of $2,000 per year. 
 
 
Paying a teacher an additional 20% to perform administrative duties out side the classroom is a mis-use of district funds. The Contract requires that the assignment must be a "continuing regular assignment of a sixth teaching period daily."
 
During the 2017-18 school year, CUSD paid employees $9,798,092.00 for 6/5th positions.  
 
Does this "EXTRA" pay show up in the salary schedule?  
 
Did these employees really work an extra period, or is this how CUSD is paying for the "one-time, off schedule collaboration payments"? 
  
Average Teacher Compensation has increased every year:
 
2013-14 $  95,673
2014-15 $105,340
2015-16 $110,633
2016-19 $113,901
 
In reviewing principal salaries- CUSD Principals are paid $30,000 to $62,000 more per year than the "Highest Average Salary" for a large school district. 
 
The PUBLIC needs an audit of CUSDs' expenditures on 6/5th teaching assignments to see if they constitute a proper use of District Funds.

at page 9 of the Contract
 
"5.11 The District shall have the option to offer to teachers assigned to teach at the 6-12 level the opportunity to volunteer to accept a continuing regular assignment of a sixth teaching period daily. Teachers who accept a continuing regular assignment of a daily sixth period shall be compensated at one-fifth 1/5th of their regular daily rate of 185 days in addition to their regular compensation.
 
5.11.1 Each spring, a letter or memo which includes, but is not limited to, the following information will be sent to each secondary teacher regarding application/selection of teachers to fill 6/5th positions.
 
(1) Among the factors in making a 6/5th assignment selection, the site administrator will give equal and fair consideration to the following criteria for selection: credentialing, facilities, master schedule (e.g., student course requests, class size, minimizing program changes, availability), history of previous assignment, expertise, teacher interest, circumstances specific to the particular school site.
 
(2) A return response form on which a secondary teacher will indicate interest/non-interest in being considered for a 6/5th position and an acknowledgement of the selection process and criteria.
 
If the employee's circumstances change after completion of the return response, it is his/her responsibility to inform the Principal of the change in interest.
 
(3) The District shall have the option to select from among the volunteers for said regular sixth period teaching assignment"

Board Agenda page 977

(TAP) Teaching Assistant Principals 

Currently CUSD has two types of TAPs'

TAP I positions do not require an administrative credential. These are "teachers" who are part of CUEA... the teachers union aka Capistrano Unified Education Association. TAP I employees receive a stipend of $1,000 per year.

Tap II positions require an administrative credential. These people are part of CUMA- Capistrano Unified Management Association. CUMA members do not pay Union dues. TAP II employees receive a stipend of $2,000 per year.

If the Board approves this Item the revision will create a single TAP classification and all TAPS will become members of CUEA.

Financial Implications: Staff has worked to create a cost-neutral recommendation through Administrative Regulation.

Increasing Dues paying members in the Teachers Union is usually NOT in the best interest of taxpayers and students. There is no explanation as to why this would benefit the education of students.

The Board should be required to re-visit this policy because it appears to be a newly negotiated Item that has not be properly disclosed to the Public. The Public was told that CUSD had negotiated a three year contract with CUEA 2016-19.

CUSDWatch Comment

ASB funds are raised by students through ASB cards, fundraisers and ticket sales. The money is spent on student activities, including sports, clubs, dances and trips.

Paying for staff is the job of the district.

This items represents a $68,638.00 tax on CUSD students.

Currently these positions and pay represent $10 per unit.

Is the ASB effected by the minimum wage?

If so- when the minimum wage gets to $15 per hour students will be expected to increase ASB fees to $102,975.00 to pay for these same positions. 

That is a substantial tax increase... 150%
