December 6, 2017 CUSD Board of Trustees Meeting: Consent Calendar 

 

CONSENT CALENDAR

All matters listed under the Consent Calendar are considered by the Board to be "routine" and will be enacted by the Board in one motion in the form listed below. There will be no discussion of these items prior to the time the Board votes on the motion unless members of the Board, staff, or the public request specific items to be discussed and/or removed from the Consent Calendar. The Superintendent and the staff recommend approval of all Consent Calendar items.

Note: CUSD put the purchase of the Esencia School Site on the Consent Calendar without a price. The amount paid turned out to be $13 million more than previously disclosed because CUSD valued the land as if it had 100 homes on it. This resulted in the gifting of $13 million in taxpayer dollars to the Ranch and is the subject of a DA Investigation.

It is very important for tax payers to watch all Consent Calendar Items.

PUBLIC COMMENT is now limited to 5 minutes per speaker total no matter how many Items an individual speaker wishes to comment on. This is a NEW rule was put in place to limit Public scrutiny of the Consent Calendar.

BLUE CARDS should be pulled on the following Items for the reasons stated below:

Business and Support Services: Agenda Items #9, #10, #14

Curriculum and Instruction: Agenda Items #20, #21

 

AGENDA ITEMS #9 - #15 BUSINESS AND SUPPORT SERVICES

 

Agenda Item #9 DONATION OF FUNDS AND EQUIPMENT

No Blue Card Was Pulled- I would have pulled this Item if I was able to attend

On January 26, 2016 I presented the CUSD BOT with a presentation entitled to "Fundraising for Core Educational Programs" and asked that CUSD meet it's statutory and constitutional obligation to fund all Core Educational programs as identified in Education Code Section 51210 and 51220. 

While the lawsuit that is the subject of Closed session itemB-1 Cal200 v Apple Valley USD,et al only pertains to PE - this lawsuit should be expanded to include Art - Music - and Science, core educational programs that CUSD no longer funds.

CUSD relies on fundraising and donations to pay for Art - Music - Science and now PE.

Using one-time money to pay for on-going core educational programs creates wealth based inequities within the district that violate the Civil rights of students. Students whose parents cannot fundraise for these programs go without. 

When parents are forced to fundraise for core educational programs that the district is constitutionally and statutorily obligated to provide (year after year... after year), it becomes a tax upon the public. A new tax for a service that the State/District is already constitutionally obligated to provide. Such taxation is a "Double Tax" and is "taxation without representation".

Taxpayers within CUSD should expand this lawsuit to include art - music and science.

The law suit should not be limited to PE.

RETIREMENT INCENTIVES FOR CLASSIFIED NON-MANAGEMENT TEAMSTERS

AGENDA ITEM #12  RESOLUTION NO. 1718-29, RETIREMENT INCENTIVE FOR CLASSIFIED NON-MANAGEMENT TEAMSTERS 952 EMPLOYEES

This Item was passed on Consent without Discussion

Learn More

Board Agenda page 205

Board Audio: None

Approval of Resolution No. 1718-29 Retirement incentive designed to encourage senior Classified Non-Management Teamsters employees to retire early. 

"The SRP would provide participating employees with a tax-qualified annuity based on total District contributions of 60 percent of their final year salary. This annuity is paid for by the District over a five-year period. The program requires all employees to resign from District employment at the end of the school year, no later than June 30, 2018. Approximately 43 employees are eligible for the offer."

The following Statement came from a Reliable CUSD Source that wishes to remain anonymous.

Early retirement is a bad description of what this is - it is an incentive to leave early. 

The cost of that incentive is supposed to be less then keeping them on the job for another year (or years).

CUSD is trying to reduce costs.

The same incentive to leave was offered to teachers  

CUEA didn't disclose this incentive to their membership.

CUSD and CUEA are at an impasse.

If CUSD offers the incentive to  one group it is required to offer it to all employee groups because of parity provisions of each contract. 

CUSD is moving forward with Teamsters, who have settled their contract-in-main with CUSD."

1) Why there are any funds from Talega CFD being utilized any further since the district board passed its resolution in August 2016 on surplus Mello Roos and applying the surplus towards the bond debt at the end of each fiscal year (not including existing surplus special taxes in CFD accounts).

2) The $10M in surplus special taxes that had built up by CUSD’s practice of overtaxing Talega homeowners by $2.3 Million extra annually and the bond refi savings from 2006 that CUSD kept was spent on new classrooms/buildings at SCHS and SJHS. 

3) If CUSD is true to its word and accountable to the taxpayers it would have no more surplus to be spending on this demolition project or other projects outside of the scope of CFD agreements. Use of Talega 90-2 surplus taxes however is not an authorized use of Talega’s Mello Roos under not only the law but also our formation and mitigation agreements.

4) One would think CUSD’s abuse of Mello Roos taxpayers would have subsided by now after new Mello Roos transparency and accountability law was implemented, the OC Grand Jury report that criticized agencies management of Mello Roos, our Talega community’s taxpayer advocacy as well as the advocacy of other CFD communities within CUSD that have stood up to CUSD’s  abuse of power.

There have been Board discussions that the academic performance of Native Spanish speakers in the 2-way program is in decline. CUSD has paid Hanover Research to see why.

The past success of the 2-way program was based on 20:1 class sizes in K-3. Each class had 10 native english speakers and 10 English Language Learners. The basis of the program was to teach:

K: 90% Spanish/10% English

1: 80% Spanish/20% English

2: 70% Spanish/30% English

3: 60% Spanish/40% English

then 50%/50% thereafter

The goal was to make English Language Learners fluent and literate in Spanish (their native language) then go on to teach English. 

Due to inadequate funding, class sizes have grown well past the 20:1 and that (in my opinion) is the greatest contributing factor in the decline in academic performance of ELL in this program).

This Professional Development will not address that flaw.

The Eliezer Williams, et al., vs. State of California, et al. (Williams) case was filed as a class action in 2000 in San Francisco County Superior Court.

The case was settled in 2004, and as a result school districts must provide public school students with equal access to instructional materials, safe and decent school facilities, and qualified teachers. 

Board Policy 1312.4 mandates school districts establish policies and procedures to resolve deficiencies related to textbooks and instructional materials, teacher vacancies or mis-assignments, and facility conditions posing a threat to student/staff health or safety. Furthermore, Education Code § 35186 requires any deficiencies or complaints be reported to the Board of Trustees at a regularly scheduled public meeting each quarter.
