PUSD is Poorly Managed. Management Shake Up is a Must

If The Cupertino Union School District can provide their students with high-quality education and programs with only $4373 per student in base revenue limit funding from the state, why can't PUSD offers our students comparable standards with the $2000 extra per student in funding from the state? PUSD receives $6367 per student in base revenue limit funding from the state. Yet, PUSD is still threatening to cut programs and teachers due to the recent budget cuts. Clearly, the district is poorly managed and a shake up is essential. Casey and his crew allowed inefficiencies to thrive and grow throughout the years, indulging into the seemingly unlimited flow of cash from the community and the state. The latest round of budget cuts just brought all those issues to the surface and Casey's immediately reactions is to cut programs and seek bailout in the form of parcel tax. That is just unacceptable! If other districts can do wonders with much much less budget, things just don't add up in PUSD. It's time for new management and elimination of the excess in unnecessary administrative spending (like Casey's mortgage that PUSD pays).
