Commercial Warrants: $11,870,006.35

PURCHASE ORDERS: $20,568,348.03

Dues and Memberships

CUSD spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on Dues and Memberships that have political pacs that advocate AGAINST taxpayer and student interests by competing for education dollars that have nothing to do with the actual education of students.

Thousands of dollars each month to ACSA (The Association of California School Administrators) an Organization that promotes Professional Development for Educators and is working to form a single Union of all Unions so that every individual engaged in Public Education will all be on the same side of the collective bargaining table. A $10,000 payment to ACSA Foundation is the basis of the Conflict of Interest Investigation into Trustee-Hatton Hodson and the reason she resigned. ACSA's Pac Advocacy Positions.

$20,100.00 to CSBA (California School Boards Association) also has advocacy positions that continue to promote political agendas such as redistribution of wealth and social justice and anti-charter school legislation.

Millions of dollars of education money that should go into the classroom are going to foundations and for-profit companies. The result is a continued decline in the academic performance of California students across all demographics.

CASH (Coalition for Adequate School Housing) is another organization that promotes spending education dollars on school facilities bonds and other things that benefit the building industry, again taking public education dollars out of the classroom. This is the organization that spearheaded Prop 51 School Facilities Bonds. 186 out of 206 school measures passed in the last election totaling over $50 billion in new property taxes for Californian's. Fortunately CUSD taxpayers did not approve Measure M, CUSD's $889 million dollar school facility bonds. Jerry Brown is not releasing these Bond funds because he knows the money will be wasted, and the size of the debt will bankrupt the State.

$4,663.00 of taxpayer money to go to a conference that will teach CUSD how to get more money out of taxpayers for the building trade.

Look at all the firms that gave money to promote Prop 51 Bonds

CUSD just spent thousands of dollars for a CUMA Retreat at the Hills Hotel for 250 CUMA employees...

CUSD and it's Teachers Union are at impasse due to a lack of funding within the District. Class Sizes are the highest in the State (maybe the nation). Facilities have not been fixed or maintained for 15 years. Staff to student ratios are not safe. Programs that have been cut- Art- Music- Science- Busing - GATE etc have not been restored. CUSD relies on fundraising and donations to pay for these. 

It is a slap in the face to every taxpayers and student to see this kind of expenditure during these tough economic times for CUSD.

Page 17

College & Career Advantage 

Page 6

CUSD spent $1.6 million on this? CCA

When they do not have district funded Art- Music and Science for every student that aligns with minimum State Content Standards and Curriculum Frameworks and is taught by a properly credentialed teacher? The State is giving Districts all kinds of GRANT Money to fund this, but the State no longer funds a basic education for every student first. The lack of focus on basic math and english is resulting in a continued decline of academic performance across all demographics.

Students graduating from CUSD have no choice but Community College or a job after high school See: LCAP Annual Review

CUSD's A-G completion rate ALL SCHOOLS

2014-2015 54.4% 

2015-2016 54.4% 

No Change 

This means that :

54.4% of CUSD's graduating students will have the option to attend a 4-year college after graduation.

45.6% have NO OPTION but Community College or a job after graduation.  

California Public Schools are no longer offering high achieving students what they need to compete with their peers around the nation for a place in selective 4- year colleges or Universities.

General Fund Payments to Watch:

ACSA  and Fagen Freidman Fullforst

68 250930 ACSA Foundation for Education 8/18/17 1,875.40 page 51 of 998


ACSA Foundation then spends that money on Political issues through its three political PACS:

ACSA - Issues Political Action Committee - "ACSA ISSUES PAC" = ID #972015

ACSA - Political Action Committee - "ACSA-PAC" = ID #842151

ACSA - ACSA Political Action Committee - "ACSAPAC" = ID #840154


Through ACSA's Political Pacs - you have taxpayer money being used to advocate for Union positions and Pay- To-Play For-Profit Companies.

Association of California School Administrators - Issues Political Action Committee - "ACSA ISSUES PAC" = ID #972015

This Pac spent $400,000 on Yes on Prop 51 - 55 - 58 

CUSD is not supposed to be writing anymore checks to ACSA Foundation for Education.  see: Scandal... The Untold Story Behind The Resignation of CUSD Trustee Lynn Hatton-Hodson


California’s Systems Leadership Collaborative led by ACSA, Fullan, InnovateEd, The Flippen Group, and Fagen, Friedman and Fulfrost is designed to help 15 districts from around the state successfully implement their LCAP. The main goal is to positively affect the classroom around student achievement.

Our vision and guiding principles: School district leaders can attain extraordinary results when they effectively apply the principles of systems leadership. This organizational development process will be facilitated and provide the research-based frameworks to define high-leverage actions together, as they can be difficult to accomplish without support. Collaboration – where leaders support and learn from each other – makes a difference.

Our purpose: The Systems Leadership Collaborative is premised upon the significant impact school district systems can have by successfully implementing their LCAP, with an emphasis on influencing next generation accountability to develop a culture of continuous improvement. Our work together will focus on research-based frameworks and proven leadership practices for building district capacity, including:

  • Communicating a strategic focus
  • Cultivating leadership capacity
  • Establishing organizational support structures
  • Engaging in data-driven decision-making
  • Leading implementation planning and execution
  • Developing a high-performing culture

Outcomes: This 10-month process will provide a systemic structure for school district teams achieve their goals with the help of experts who deeply understand systems implementation. District teams will also benefit from ongoing feedback and collaboration with other districts in their region. As a collaborative, we will shed light on the most important indicators of progress for districts as related to the eight state priorities, and share what actions have the most significant impact on district systems leading to successful implementation of the LCAP.
