PUSD Board of Trustees Meeting Oct 13 7:00 pm

Original post made by Dark Corners of Town, Country Fair, on Oct 11, 2009

Agenda items include:
- Changing the Superintendent's contract to add an option to receive an annual $10,000 fringe benefit in cash, retroactive to 2007. (why does it need to be retroactive?)
- Borrowing over $400,000 from an internal fund to pay for mold damage repair, portables and other costs - to be repaid later with interest. (more debt)
- Public hearing to consider support for an online charter school. (good to have alternatives for Pleasanton)

Probably for pension spiking.

Will be interesting to hear the rational behind the "option" and see who will vote to approve, if Stacey's theory is correct...

Just to clarify, what I read from the board packet is that the $10,000 fringe benefit is already in the contract. Currently the contract says the $10,000 goes into a tax sheltered annuity. The change is to add "or in cash" to the contract.

Adding the words 'or in cash', is my read as well. What is motivating the change and why is it retroactive? Does it mean the benefit was not put into an annuity in 2007 and 2008? Or was it and it will be converted to cash? What are the implications to calculating the pension?
