August 22, 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 entitlements to build 100 homes on it. There were no entitlements granted. This resulted in the gifting of $13 million in taxpayer dollars to the Ranch.

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

All of these Items were Passed without any Board Discussion.

Motion Passed 5-0-1 (Trustee Bullockus Absent)

CUSDWatch Comment

There is a very troubling movement in Public Education. Under "Local Control" Districts are now going to allow individual school site Principals to execute contracts with no oversight by the District because they do not go through the District Purchasing Office:

I have been watching this practice grow- and it is unacceptable.

For example:

Agenda Item #16 RESEARCH PRACTICE PARTNERSHIP WITH UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT IRVINE AND MARCO FORSTER MIDDLE SCHOOL

CUSD is allowing the Principal of Marco Forster to enter into an agreement to study students at Marco Forster WITHOUT Parental Consent. They are stating that Student Consent is all that is needed.

No one at the District is signing this contract. Parents should have to consent to the sharing of any personally identifiable data.

In the Board Item, Staff states... "This agreement is in alignment with Board Policy." but fails to state which policy. 

 

AGENDA ITEMS #1 - #11 BUSINESS AND SUPPORT SERVICES

CUSDWatch Comment

In CUSD, the "Quality" of the education a student receives is dependent on the wealth of the parents at an individual school site. The District  relies on fundraising and donations (one-time money) to pay for "core educational programs" like art- music- science and now PE.  Relying on one-time money to pay for on-going expenses creates wealth based inequities within the district that are unconstitutional. 

See: Fundraising for Core Educational Programs

Bathgate Elementary School

TIAA $15,000 for a STEM Lab

Who is TIAA?

Discovery Science Center    $330.00 Discovery Science Center

Bernice Ayer Middle School

City of San Clemente  $6,985.00 Intervention Program

Is it appropriate for City's to use taxpayer money to gift a program to one school in City  without giving the same gift to all schools with inn the City.

Vista Del Mar Elementary School

Vista Del Mar PTA $1,000.00 Meet the Masters

Art is a "core" educational program that must be funded by District funds, not one time money.

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".

Illuiminate Education - $229,115.50 Amendment  - this total contract is now $464,115.50

CUSD is spending millions of dollars on data management systems. By executive order, President Obama created a loophole in the FERPA law which allows 3rd party for profit companies to have access to a students personally identifiable data. 

CUSD actually has an "Application to Conduct Research" which allows CUSD to monetize student data.

SPECIAL EDUCATION FUND

Lisa A Groves - $3,000.00 Infant Hearing Assessments? 

Jessica Minahan- $12,000.00 to hold a Conference for Private School Representatives? Is CUSD in the Conference Business?

Projected Cost $1.3 million 

Funding: General Fund

Approval of State of California Participating Addendum No. 7-14-70-06 with WSCANASPO Master Price Agreement Number AR1464 and State of California Multiple Award Schedule Contract No. 3-11-70-0876AK to purchase network infrastructure products from Vector Resources, Incorporated. The contracts provide set pricing for Hewlett Packard wireless products for the District’s network refresh. School boards have the authority to “piggyback” on another public agency’s bid, per Public Contract Code § 20118, when it is in the best interest of a district. It is often advantageous to utilize piggyback bids when contract items are identical to the District’s specifications. Using piggyback contracts save time and often provide lower prices than a single jurisdiction would be able to obtain. Anticipated expenditure utilizing these contracts is an approximated one-time $1.3 million this year funded by the general fund. Due to the size of the contracts and awards, the documentation is posted online on the District Board Agendas and Supporting Documentation page.

CUSDWatch Comment

The District is starting to allow employees "Principals" to enter into contracts at school sites and then CUSD takes no responsibility for the contracts that District employees execute. In response to a PUBLIC RECORDS REQUEST CUSD stated: "There is no agreement between the Capistrano Unified School District and Total Registration. If an individual site made an arrangement with Total Registration, this document is not maintained by the District as a contract or memorandum of understanding by the District's purchasing Depart." Total registration (a 3rd party vendor required personally identifiable information - social security numbers or students could not register for their AP Tests.)

AGENDA ITEM #11 RESOLUTION NO. 1819-13, ADOPTING THE 2017-2018 ACTUAL GANN LIMIT A THE 2018-2019 ESTIMATED GANN LIMIT

Board Agenda page 525

More Information

THIS ITEM WAS PASSED ON THE CONSENT CALENDAR WITHOUT DISCUSSION

Actual Gann Limit 2017-18 $344,875,621.00

Estimated Gann Limit for 2018-19 is $351,132,724.00

Increase of $16,387,313.00  

Change in Reporting

"After a recent review of Form GANN in the SACS Software, we have received a change request affecting both the district and county office Gann Appropriations Limit calculations.

Currently, the local proceeds of taxes calculation for most districts includes a reduction for inlieu taxes transferred to charter schools. Because charter schools are not subject to the Gann calculation, the tax amount that is transferred to charter schools not reporting with the district (reporting separately in SACS or on the Charter Alternative Form) is not captured. As verified with the Department of Finance, all local property taxes are subject to the appropriations limit and there is no legal basis for exclusion.

The proposed fix for this problem is to remove the line for Transfers to Charter Schools In-Lieu of Taxes from the district form, as well as the County form to avoid double counting. (By eliminating the in-lieu reduction, local property taxes will increase by the amount of in-lieu transfers to charter schools not reporting with the district in SACS)."

Contact: Clark Hampton, Deputy Superintendent, Business and Support Services

CUSDWatch Comment

Proposition 4 the "Ghann Limit" amended the California Constitution to:

1) Limit the growth in appropriations made by the state and individual local governments. The limit in the rate of growth is the percentage increase in the cost of living and the percentage increase in the state or local government's population.

2) Require state and local governments to return any funds to taxpayers in excess of the amount appropriated for a given fiscal year.

3) Require the state to reimburse local governments for the cost of complying with state mandates.

Because of the provisions of Proposition 4, in 1987, the state was forced to rebate $1.1 billion in excess revenue to taxpayers.

That rebate led the California Teachers Association to place Proposition 98 on the 1988 ballot. Proposition 98 puts a legal floor under school spending and requires that excess Gann Limit revenues go into education, rather than into rebates to taxpayers. Excess revenues above the 4% level continue to be rebated to taxpayers.

CUSDWatch Comment

Rachel Scott was the first student killed in the Columbine High School shooting in 1999. A month before her premature death, Rachel had written a two-page “Code of Ethics” that she had shared with her family. To honor her legacy, her father and other family members began sharing her message with others. This ultimately led to opportunities to provide presentations to schools and community organizations. The Rachel’s Challenge organization has grown to a team of 30 speakers that address young people in schools and colleges worldwide.

Oso Grande Elementary School is requesting to purchase the “Sustain” package that will include 4 “Link Up!” presentations for students, as well as a community event for families. The “Link Up!: presentations offer 5 challenges to students. The challenges include using kind words and doing 1 of 4  kind things, accepting and including others, choosing positive influences, setting goals, and keeping a journal. The site will also receive materials that teachers can use in the classroom to reinforce the message. Follow up program materials emphasize the importance of kindness and compassion, and “The Power of One.” Professional development videos for teachers are also provided to help them prepare for the event and provide follow up support.

1,137 K-5 students will participate

THIS ITEM WAS PASSED ON THE CONSENT CALENDAR WITHOUT DISCUSSION

There is No Fiscal Impact

Approval of the School Resource Officer (SRO) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) identifies the roles of the SRO, questioning and arrest procedures, search and seizure protocols, and other relevant information pertinent to the position. The current SRO MOU was last updated in 2009. The proposed SRO MOU outlined updated practices and has been vetted through legal counsel. There is no financial impact.

Contact: Susan Holliday, Associate Superintendent, Education Services

CUSDWatch Comment

The SRO program is intended to assist schools in ensuring that no student’s right to receive an education is abridged by violence or criminal disruption. The SRO program does not supplant a school’s responsibility to provide security for its students. Instead, the SRO program is intended to enhance the school’s provision of security for its students.

Currently, seven SRO’s are assigned to District schools.

The SRO’s typically focus on the high school and then assist feeder schools as needed.

Starting Teachers are paid $53,444.00 + Benefits  

The highest salary schedule with Base Credential is $104,828 

This is the latest Published salary schedule on CUSDs web site; CUEA Contract July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2017 at page 80

This is also the latest Published salary schedule on CUEA's web site CUEA Contract July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2017 at page 80 CUEA's website states that the 2017-19 Contract is coming soon yet there has been no public disclosure of any contract negotiations from either party. 

When you look at Transparent California, there are teachers that are making more than the highest salary listed in the Salary Schedule at $104,828?

6/5th Assignments 

CUSD had $9,798,092.00 in 6/5th positions for 2017-18.

see: CUSDWatch Article: CUSD spent $10 million on 6/5th teaching positions- The Public deserves an audit (This article has had over 1640 views and it was published 9-4-18)

Professional Development

CUSD receives Grant money to fund professional development. ($5 million Teacher Effectiveness Grant) CUSD does so much professional development that Teachers are effectively "Chronically Absent" from the classroom.

ASB Funded Teaching Positions

ASB funds are raised by students through ASB cards, fundraisers and ticket sales. The money is spent on student activities, including sports, clubs, dances and trips.

Paying for staff is the job of the district.

This items represents a $68,638.00 tax on CUSD students.

Currently these positions and pay represent $10 per unit.

Is the ASB effected by the minimum wage?

If so- when the minimum wage gets to $15 per hour students will be expected to increase ASB fees to $102,975.00 to pay for these same positions. 

That is a substantial tax increase... 150%
