Tracking the Color of Money...
CUSD failed to get Measure M ($889 million dollar School Facilities Bond) passed because they Lack Transparency.
This Item was passed on the Consent Calendar without Discussion
A Blue Card should have been pulled.
1. Board Policy 33000 requires Staff to bring contracts before the Board for approval within 60 days.
The following Contracts violate Board Policy 33000:
MCA 1718120 Seneca Family of Agencies Effective date 7-1-17 $75,000.00
FSA 1718132 SASCO Date: 8-28-17 $27,584.00
2. CUSD was unable to get Measure M Passed ($889 million dollar school facilities Bond) in part because CUSD is unable to "Track the Color of Money". The funding sources for the following contracts are questionable. When CUSD uses General Fund monies for things like Facilities Maintenance and Professional Development, those are monies that could have funded District Art- Music- Science and PE programs which are now funded through donations and fundraising. CUSD has an obligation to first fund a basic education for every student and only after that, to fund other things out of the General Fund.
ICA 1718129 Leverage Learning Group Inc. $66,000.00. CUSD used General Fund when the Item should have been paid for using the Teacher Effectiveness Grant.
ICA 1718130 Mind Research Institute. $2,500.00. CUSD used General Fund when the Item should have been paid for using Teacher Effectiveness Grant.
FSA 1718132 SASCO Newheart Middle School $27,584.00 for the installation of security cameras. CUSD used General Fund when the Item should have been paid for using Deferred Maintenance Funds.
FSA 1718133 A.C.Landscape Dana Hills HS $26,915.53 for the installation of irrigation booster pump CUSD used General Fund when the Item should have been paid for using Deferred Maintenance Funds.

FSA 1718140 KYA Services to fix and repair Shor Cliffs Middle School Room 203 and Storage $34,280.94. CUSD paid for this using General Fund and College and Career Advantage Funds. This Item should have been paid for using Deferred Maintenance Funds.
ICA 1718136 MIND Music Keyboard Services Oak Grove ES and Marblehead ES Grades 2 & 3 $16,000.00. Staff used Gift Funds and Title I funds. Should Title I funds be used for this?
ICA 1718127 CampCo Recreation Las Palmas Elementary School provide After School and PE programs $140,000.00. CUSD used General Fund. How does CUSD provide this type of service for one school and not every school? Other schools are having to use Gift Funds for PE.
General Fund money being used for the above totals: $437,880.47
3. PSA 1718126 Public Economics Inc $15,000.00 to Provide special services and advice in financial, economic, facilities or administrative matters. This is not listed as an AMENDMENT to a contract; however, the contract makes reference to a "REVISED SCOPE OF WORK" that is suppose to be referenced in an AMENDED SCOPE OF WORK to extend to all relevant tasks to FY 2017-18. There is no amendment attached to the agreement?
4. MCA 1718022 Spectrum Center - Rosier Park School (Elementary) The Resolution on page 309 has an error- It says that the date is June 28, 2018 - it should be 2017.
