(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.
