The following "Management Resources" should be removed from Board Policy 5180(c) because they are not "legal authority". These resources constitute "political advocacy" not legal authority.
Updated Legal Guidance: Protecting Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Students Against Sex Discrimination, July 2016
CSBA is the nonprofit education association. A membership-driven association, CSBA provides policy resources and training to its dues paying members. It is a POLITICAL ADVOCACY ORGANIZATION. See: CSBA Public, Legislative and Legal Advocacy
CA School Boards Foundation
The California School Boards Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, tax-exempt educational organization whose mission is to provide direct support and training to school board members, conduct policy research and analysis, and recognize educational leadership and achievements in California. The Foundation is integral to achieving the long-term vision of CSBA, which is to build a “state where the public schools are widely recognized as the foundation of a free and democratic society, where local citizen governing boards are fully vested with the means to advance the best interests of students and the public, and where the futures of all children are driven by their aspirations, not bounded by their circumstances.”
CALL TO ACTION TAXPAYERS AND PARENTS
CUSD spends hundreds of thousands of dollars for memberships in Associations like CSBA. All of the organizations have political action pacs which often advocate against the interests of students and taxpayers. Ask CUSD to stop spending student money to fund political advocacy organizations like CSBA.

Promoting a Safe and Secure Learning Environment for All: Guidance and Model Policies to Assist California's K-12 Schools in Responding to Immigration Issues, April 2018
The State Attorney General spends tremendous amounts of taxpayer dollars in political efforts to delegitimize the current duly elected president of the United States. Tremendous taxpayer resources are put into the legal defense of people who have entered our country illegally. The State of California (a self-declared sanctuary state) pours tremendous taxpayer dollars into new programs and entitlements for people who are not legally entitled to be in this Country and does so at the expense of the education of the children of legal residents.
This "resource" is the political opinion of a rouge Attorney General in a State that has 1.7 million more registered voters than the number of people who are entitled to vote in this state.
This is NOT legitimate legal authority for California School Board Policy, this is "Political Advocacy".
