Teacher and Management Contributions
Original post made by Tony E. on Apr 29, 2009
Assuming Measure G passes, certificated staff voted overwhelming to reduce their work year by two days next year. The two-day reduction will be achieved by reducing the previous three mandatory Staff Development Days to one day of mandatory Staff Development. The total of this contribution is about $760,000 in savings.
The total dollar amount of these contributions is $1 million dollars.

The car allowances are just another blob of fat in the budget that PUSD did nothing about until Pleasanton community members questioned why it was costing the taxpayers $120K PER YEAR, to cover vehicle operating costs for dozens of administrators and staff who live within 10 miles of their school sites or the district office.
They didn't need the allowances to cover the costs of using their vehicles for school related business. They didn't even need it to cover their costs to get to and from work.
The car allowances gave PUSD a way to give PUSD administrators a raise without the trouble of a contract negotiation which would have been made public.
The only reason PUSD is able to cut $85K from the $120K a year cost is because they should not have been spending it in the first place.
Thank the community members who brought this expense into the open so it could be stopped.

Meanwhile the district will be paying out Step and Column increases. No money for our kids, but there is money for raises! This is wrong. I want to help our schools, but not by letting myself be taken advantage of.
Save Pleasanton Schools, vote No on G.

"The total dollar amount of these contributions is $1 million dollars."
The total dollar amount of the Step & Column raises for the same period of time is $15 MILLION dollars!
Would someone please add up all of the perks that still remain and the administrators raises that they tricked the board into approving two weeks before the state froze raises?
