May 23, 2018 CUSD BOT Meeting - CONSENT CALENDAR

CONSENT CALENDAR

All matters listed under the Consent Calendar are considered by the Board to be "routine" and will be enacted by the Board in one motion in the form listed below. There will be no discussion of these items prior to the time the Board votes on the motion unless members of the Board, staff, or the public request specific items to be discussed and/or removed from the Consent Calendar. The Superintendent and the staff recommend approval of all Consent Calendar items.

Note: CUSD put the purchase of the Esencia School Site on the Consent Calendar without a price. The amount paid turned out to be $13 million more than previously disclosed because CUSD valued the land as if it had 100 homes on it. This resulted in the gifting of $13 million in taxpayer dollars to the Ranch and is the subject of a DA Investigation.

It is very important for tax payers to watch all Consent Calendar Items.

PUBLIC COMMENT is now limited to 5 minutes per speaker total no matter how many Items an individual speaker wishes to comment on. This is a NEW rule was put in place to limit Public scrutiny of the Consent Calendar.

THIS ITEM WAS PASSED ON THE CONSENT CALENDAR WITHOUT DISCUSSION

See: Fundraising for Core Educational Programs

CUSD has a statutory and constitutional obligation to fund all Core Educational programs as identified in Education Code Section 51210 and 51220. 

Grade K-6

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Social Sciences
  • Science
  • Visual and Performing Arts
  • Health
  • Physical Education

  • English
  • Social Sciences
  • Foreign Language
  • Physical Education
  • Science
  • Mathematics

  • Applied ARts
  • CTE
  • Driver Education 

CUSD relies on fundraising and donations to pay for art - music and science- class size reduction- teachers salaries and release time- instructional aids - technology. 

THE ONLY THING CUSD PAYS FOR IS EMPLOYEE COMPENSATION

Using one-time money to pay for on-going core educational programs creates wealth based inequities within the district that violate the Civil rights of students. Students whose parents cannot fundraise for these programs go without. 

When parents are forced to fundraise for core educational programs that the district is constitutionally and statutorily obligated to provide (year after year... after year), it becomes a tax upon the public. A new tax for a service that the State/District is already constitutionally obligated to provide. Such taxation is a "Double Tax" and is "taxation without representation". 

Agenda Item #5 PURCHASE ORDERS, COMMERCIAL WARRANTS AND PREVIOUSLY BOARD-APPROVED BIDS AND CONTRACTS

Purchase Orders: $28,415,559.50

Warrants: $26,710,895.01
