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.)

CUSD is allowing the Principal at Marco Forster to execute a contract with UCI to "STUDY" (share personally identifiable information) students without Parental Consent.
CUSD is writing these new Policies based on the work of the California School Boards Association. CUSD even tried citing this "Association" as legal authority for policy. The Public complained and CUSD has removed legal references to CSBA from policy. There is no need for CSBA to be mentioned at all in this Board agenda Item.
