TRUSTEES VOTED 7-0 to Approve the Contract

All comments by Trustees stated that the single most important thing to ensure a quality education for students is the Classroom Teacher. Class Size- Facilities - Curriculum are not as important as how well District employees are compensated. AT CUSD all employees will get equal offers to the Teachers. This will be the 5th straight year of across the board compensation increases for employees totaling over $150 million dollars while CUSD facilities need $200 million in Emergency Repairs. 

CUSD is deficit spending to pay for these increases.

The Operating Deficit after approval of this agreement:

2017-18 ($20,643,951)

2018-19 ($10,370,859)
