July 17, 2019 CUSD BOT Meeting AGENDA ITEM #1  DONATION OF FUNDS AND EQUIPMENT 

Board Agenda page 1

Donations: $692,467.63

The 2019-20 California Budget includes total funding of $103.4 billion ($58.8 billion General Fund and $44.6 billion other funds) for all K-12 education programs. Despite record high education revenuues for schools, CUSD taxpayers are forced to fundraise for core educational programs.

see: 2019-20 California Budget: K-12

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 and Technology

90% 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.

Here is this months $700,000 new "TAX" on CUSD residents.
