This Board meeting agenda is 1088 pages long and has 54 Items on it.

The Important business does not even get discussed until 2 or 3 hours into the meeting because Staff always puts an hour to an hour and a half of awards and presentations at the front. By the Time Trustees vote on important items like the budget it is late, they are tired and they rush to finish. This is not fair to students and taxpayers.

It is Trustees that are elected to represent the interests of taxpayers and students. 

Staff has no fiduciary duty to represent taxpayers or students. 

When tired Trustees rely on staff recommendations, it is often not what is in the best interest of educating students. 

For example: Staff has recommended 5 consecutive years of across the board compensation increases totaling over $150 million dollars while CUSD have facilities that need $189 million in "Emergency" repairs and maintenance.

June 20, 2018 CUSD BOT Meeting: INFORMATION/DISCUSSION/ACTION

AGENDA ITEM #41  DEVELOPMENT OF SAND VOLLEYBALL AS AN INTERSCHOLASTIC SPORT

Board Agenda  INFORMATION/DISCUSSION    No Action Will be taken 

Board Audio at 2:14:09

More Information

This Item was Brought Forward by Trustee Jim Reardon

The presentation was added after the Board Agenda was posted Sand Volleyball and the Capistrano Unified School District

CUSDWatch Comment

The goal is to make sand volleyball a CIF sport in order to provide more college athletic scholarship opportunities for girls.  Right now there is no place for CUSD to practice because there are very few sand volleyball courts available and to many teams interested in playing.

Maybe CUSD could use San Clemente High Schools upper campus which CUSD just spent $500,000 to demolish the main building to make room for future practice fields. 

Maybe we could get everything donated.

TITLE I SCHOOLS

AGENDA ITEM #49 JUNE 30, 2018 DATA COLLECTIONS OF THE CONSOLIDATED APPLICATION AND REPORTING SYSTEM

Board Agenda page 1058 

Board Audio at 4:11:14

More Information

In CUSD Title I schools are any school that has 45% + students receiving Free and Reduced Lunch.

CUSD currently has 10 Title I Schools. 

  • Del Obispo Elementary
  • Hidden Hills Elementary
  • Kinoshita Elementary
  • Las Palmas Elementary
  • Marblehead Elementary
  • RH Dana Elementary
  • San Juan Elementary
  • Viejo Elementary
  • Marco Forster Middle School
  • Junipero Serra High School

If Carl Hankey and Palisades increase the percentage of students who are on free and reduced lunch then they will also automatically be designated Title I Schools bringing the Total number of schools to 12

Trustee Bullockus stated that she would not vote to approve a plan to make Carl Hanky K-8 and Palasades Elementary Title I schools. 

This is not a "choice" if these schools increase the number of students receiving free and reduced lunch then they will become Title I.

Superintendent Vital recommended that since there were only four Trustees Present and one is voting no for Trustees to approve the Consolidated Application as written for the 10 current Title I Schools with instructions to set aside dollars for two additional Title I schools (Carl Hanky and Palasides) in the event that they were designated Title I.

Trustee Reardon asks what a Protected Prayer Certification is

PROTECTED PRAYER CERTIFICATION 

CUSDWatch Comment

California Department of Education: Instructions Protected Prayer

The Protected Prayer Certification meets the annual federal requirements specified in Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), Title I, Section 9524(b) regarding constitutionally protected prayer in public elementary and secondary schools. This data entry form is designed to provide the written certification that the local educational agency (LEA) has no policy that prevents or otherwise denies participation in constitutionally protected prayer in public elementary and secondary schools.

20 US Code Section 7904 - School Prayer

(a) Guidance

The Secretary shall provide and revise guidance, not later than September 1, 2002, and of every second year thereafter, to State educational agencies, local educational agencies, and the public on constitutionally protected prayer in public elementary schools and secondary schools, including making the guidance available on the Internet. The guidance shall be reviewed, prior to distribution, by the Office of Legal Counsel of the Department of Justice for verification that the guidance represents the current state of the law concerning constitutionally protected prayer in public elementary schools and secondary schools.

(b) Certification

As a condition of receiving funds under this chapter, a local educational agency shall certify in writing to the State educational agency involved that no policy of the local educational agency prevents, or otherwise denies participation in, constitutionally protected prayer in public elementary schools and secondary schools, as detailed in the guidance required under subsection (a) of this section. The certification shall be provided by October 1 of each year. The State educational agency shall report to the Secretary by November 1 of each year a list of those local educational agencies that have not filed the certification or against which complaints have been made to the State educational agency that the local educational agencies are not in compliance with this section.

(c) Enforcement

The Secretary is authorized and directed to effectuate subsection (b) of this section by issuing, and securing compliance with, rules or orders with respect to a local educational agency that fails to certify, or is found to have certified in bad faith, that no policy of the local educational agency prevents, or otherwise denies participation in, constitutionally protected prayer in public elementary schools and secondary schools.

AGENDA ITEM #50 SECOND READING – BOARD POLICY 5143.1, TOBACCO, SMOKING, VAPING

Board Agenda page 1062 

Board Audio 4:28:02

2ND READING

Presented by Dr Susan Holiday, Associate Superintendent , Education Services 

This Board policy is being amended to cover Vaping.

Electronic cigarettes, also known as e-cigarettes, e-vaporizers, or electronic nicotine delivery systems, are battery-operated devices that people use to inhale an aerosol, which typically contains nicotine, flavoring and other chemicals. They can resemble traditional tobacco cigarettes (cig-alikes), cigars, or pipes, or even everyday items like pens or USB memory sticks. Other devices, such as those with fillable tanks, may look different. Regardless of their design and appearance, these devices generally operate in a similar manner and are made of similar components. More than 460 different e-cigarette brands are currently on the market.

E-cigarettes are popular among teens and are now the most commonly used form of tobacco among youth in the United States. They are easily available, have alluring advertisements, various e-liquid flavors, and the belief that they are safer than cigarettes have helped make them appealing to this age group. E-cigarette use exposes the lungs to a variety of chemicals, including those added to e-liquids, and other chemicals produced during the heating/vaporizing process. A study conducted on various e-cigarette products found the vapor contained known carcinogens and toxic chemicals as well as potentially toxic metal nanoparticles from the device itself

Board Audio at 4:29:15

Motion to Approve the Material Revision to the Capistrano Connections Academy Charter Trustee Jim Reardon

Second by Trustee Judy Bullokus 

Passes 4-0-3 (Trustees Pritchard, Jones and Holloway Absent)

CUSDWatch Comment

CUSD owns Capistrano Connections Academy.

Capistrano Connections Academy is CUSD's Virtual School.

CUSD Trustees should not approve this as a "revision". California Online Public Schools should have to apply for a new charter based on the following:

Change of Name

page 66:

"Capistrano Connections Academy, Incorporated" and "CapoCA" shall be replaced with "California Online Public Schools" or "CAlOPS"

page 67: 

The Board has engaged Connections Academy, LLC to manage the school under the terms of the professional services agreement (also known as a management contract). Exhibit "I" 

There is no Business filing with the California Secretary of State for "Connections Academy LLC" 

“The District shall not be responsible or liable for the operations of CalOPS.”

Board Composition:

page 69

“The Board seeks out at least one Board Member who resides within the
geographical boundaries of CUSD and the geographical area served by the charter schools it governs, in order to provide input from the local community.” 

“Any current employee of CapoCA or any current employee of any of
the other charter schools governed by the corporation are not eligible to serve on the Governing
Board. No employees of Connections are eligible to serve on the Governing Board.”

Operating Charter School:

page 70

“The day-to-day management of the principal is the responsibility of the Executive Director, subject to oversight from Connections Academy, or its successor if Connections Academy is terminated, under the terms of the professional services agreement, as well as subject to oversight by the
Board.”

page 72

The words “locally based” will be removed “This independent board has overall governance authority over the charter school.”

“non-charter public schools” shall be replaced with “an independent study
program of a California public school”

This is a completely new entity and should not be approved as a renewal.

At the same time, CUSD has $189 million in EMERGENCY Facilities and maintenance repairs.

CUSD always makes the "CHOICE" to spend money on adult jobs... not to foster the education of students.
