Please take a moment to learn about some important decision-making processes going in YCUSD.  I know you are busy but you should be a part of these decisions.  

MONEY AND PRIORITIES.  Who is making the decisions around here?  You should play a role in these decisions.  Are you?  

YCUSD Strategic Plan.  The School Board has been discussing their vision of goals and budget priorities for YCUSD.  The budget of YCUSD is a reflection of priorities.  Please review the attached current draft of these priorities and be prepared to provide your YCTA Site Rep with some feedback.  We hope to have a lively discussion at the Nov. (11/21) and Dec. (12/12) Rep Council meetings.  In addition, the District will hold at least one forum for staff comments.  Please be sure we have a voice in establishing priorities for our district.    

School Site Councils.  SSC make decisions about priorities and budgets at the site-level.  All the categorical funds must come through the SSC and are a reflection of the school plan (Single Plan for Student Achievement).  You should have regular communication from your SSC - the agenda should be posted the budget should be transparent.  Attached you will find an abbreviated version of the powerpoint from the joint YCTA/CTA/YCUSD SSC Workshop on last Wednesday.  Please scan for important info. Please be sure you exercise your power to make the budgetary priorities for your site.  

Please take a moment to be better informed so that our leader may be better informed about the view from the classrooms of our school sites and district.

You will be able to access both these documents as well as the complete powerpoint from the SSC workshop on ycta.net

As always I encourage to stay in touch.

Thank you, Dina
