CUSDWatch Comment

Relying on Fundraising and Donations to pay for core educational programs in CUSD creates wealth based inequities that violate the civil rights of those students who attend schools that cannot afford to fundraise.

Illegal Donations include fundraising for:

  • Class Size Reduction
  • Instructional Aids
  • Professional Development for Teachers
  • Release time for teachers
  • Leadership Conference for Staff
  • Science programs
  • Math Programs
  • PE Programs
  • Art Programs
  • Reading/Writing Programs
  • Computers

87% of CUSD's Budget goes to employee Salaries Pensions and Benefits. Employees have received 5 consecutive years of across the board compensation increases totaling over $150 million. They have been allowed to do that thanks to the generous donations of parents and taxpayers.

IS THIS EQUITY?

The Leonard Family Foundation donates $225,000 per year to Las Palmas to reduce Class Sizes.  The notation is "School Use as Needed" see page 5 of the agenda

CUSD NATURAL GAS FACILITY

 

AGENDA ITEM #14 

RESOLUTION NO. 1819-33, ADDENDUM TO APPROVED 2011 INITIAL STUDY/MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION FOR THE COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS DISPENSER AT THE ALISO VIEJO TRANSPORTATION CENTER:

Board Agenda page 416

Approval of Resolution No. 1819-33, Addendum to Approved 2011 Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Compressed Natural Gas Dispenser at the Aliso Viejo Transportation Center. The District is proposing the installation of 20 additional fueling hoses, increasing the total number of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling stations from 20 to 40. The additional 20 fueling hoses allows the District to replace existing diesel-powered buses with CNG-powered buses. The number of buses using the depot remains unchanged, as existing diesel buses are replaced with CNG powered vehicles. As refueling each bus with CNG takes several hours, additional fueling hoses are needed. The District prepared an Addendum to the approved 2011 Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration, as required by CEQA § 15164 and identified the new fueling hoses as a minor addition to the previously approved Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration. With the adoption of Resolution No. 1819-33, the District will be able to move forward with the application to the City of Aliso Viejo to install the 20 additional fueling hoses.

CURRICULUM & INSTRUCTION

NEW SCHOOL CODE 

AGENDA ITEM #15 

ESENCIA SCHOOL - COUNTY DISTRICT SCHOOL CODES

Board Agenda page 469

Approval of Esencia School – County District School Codes. The California Department of Education (CDE) is required to report directory information annually to the United States Department of Education (ED) through the EDFacts Submission System (ESS). To meet this federal requirement, the CDE used the County-District-School (CDS) code system. To request a CDS code for a new school, an application for a County-DistrictSchool (CDS) Code form is submitted along with board minutes showing approval of the formation and establishment of the school. A previous Board item regarding Esencia that was provided to CDE described Esencia as a K-8 school. To grant separate CDS codes for Esencia Elementary School and Esencia Middle School, CDE requires board documentation requesting separate codes for the elementary and middle schools versus one code for a K-8 school. Previous K-8 schools, Carl Hankey and Arroyo Vista, also have two CDS codes. Separate codes are necessary for scheduling and staffing purposes. Staff seeks approval to apply for a County-District-School (CDS) Code for Esencia Middle School and update the name from Esencia to Esencia Elementary for CDS code 30-66464- 0136762. This change applies only to the CDS State system for operational purposes and does not change the name of the school for District purposes. There is no financial impact.

Board Agenda page 534

Approval of the Low-Performing Students Block Grant Plan. The California Department of Education (CDE) notified districts in December 2018 about a new formula grant funding. The Low-Performing Students Block Grant is a state education funding initiative with the goal of providing grant funds to districts serving pupils identified as lowperforming on state English language arts or mathematics assessments who are not otherwise identified for supplemental grant funding under the Local Control Funding Formula or eligible for special education services. This is a new three-year grant for 2018- 2021 with an estimated allocation of $2,778,256. As a condition of apportionment, districts must develop a plan describing how the funds will increase or improve evidence-based services for identified pupils to accelerate increases in academic achievement, and how the effectiveness of the services will be measured. The adopted plan for the use of funds is due to the Superintendent of Public Instruction by March 1, 2019. Students in grades K12 are eligible for services. Funds shall be used for evidence-based services that directly support pupil academic achievement, including, but not limited to professional development activities for certificated staff, instructional materials, or additional supports for pupils. Stakeholders including principals and Capistrano Unified Education Association Executive Board were engaged to assist with the development of the plan, which outlines evidence-based services, budget allocations, evaluation measures and alignment to Local Control Accountability Plan.

AGENDA ITEM #24

RESOLUTION NO. 1819-35, NON-REELECTION OF TEMPORARY CERTIFICATED EMPLOYEES

Board Agenda page 553

Approval of Resolution No. 1819-35. Non-Reelection of Temporary Certificated Employees. Education Code §§ 44909, 44918 and 44920 permit school districts to hire certificated employees on temporary contracts. The District has appropriately classified 159 certificated employees as temporary for the 2018-2019 school year. These employees are replacing other employees on leave, are serving in programs with expiring categorical funding sources, or are placeholders for regular employees who are released from their normal assignments to work in a categorical program. Education Code § 44954 requires the Board to notify temporary employees in a position requiring certification qualification of the District’s decision to release the employees from such positions prior to the next school year. The temporary release of employees, as presented in this item, is an annual process the District must utilize to ensure permanent teachers funded through categorical resources and permanent teachers on leaves of absence have a position for the succeeding school year. As the District begins staffing for the 2019-2020 school year, decisions will be made regarding how many permanent teachers will be funded through categorical resources as well how many permanent teachers will request leaves of absence, part-time contracts, and partnership assignments. As permanent teachers “temporarily” vacate their positions, temporary teachers may be rehired.
