A grassroots movement has begun to maintain CSR, proving many in the community feel this is important enough to justify the spending of huge amounts of money to support this trend. I countered that, at this time, the expense is not justifiable for the results and suggested that programs, such as Barton, which are relatively inexpensive but provide a clear, proven positive result, be supported as a priority.
So the question arises: If you could choose, what PUSD programs would you cut, maintain, or expand in this time of limited funds? What are the reasons for your choices? Thoughtfully consider which programs/ideas provide a positive benefit for their costs and those which don't.
And, remember, now that the Parcel Tax has failed, you have the freedom to donate to PUSD and specify where you wish your funds to go (CORE, PPIE, CSR, Barton, etc.), so don't be afraid to put your money where your mouth is.
