CUSD Seeking Citizen's Oversight Committee

  • Inform the public concerning the expenditure of bond revenues.

  • Actively review and report on the proper expenditure of taxpayer’s money.

  • Report on District adherence to applicable laws, rules and regulations.

  • Ensure that bond revenues are expended only for the purposed described in applicable sections of the California Constitution and as described in the ballot language.

  • Ensure that no bond funds are expended on any teacher or administrator salary, or other school operating expenses.

  • Review the annual financial audit of bond funds.

  • Inspect school facilities to ensure the expenditures match the ballot language.

  • Review and report on the district’s efforts to reduce fees associated with hiring professional consultants; efficiency upgrades, site preparation, and reusable facility planning.

 

Below are the rules on who may serve on the committee.  The board will decide in their December meeting how to gather volunteers and select who serves (should we have more volunteers than positions).  The District is allowed to seat more than seven on the committee. 

 

The citizens' oversight committee shall consist of at least seven members who shall serve for a minimum term of two years without compensation and for no more than three consecutive terms. While consisting of a minimum of at least seven members, the citizens' oversight committee shall be comprised, as follows:

   (2) One member shall be active in a senior citizens' organization.

   (3) One member shall be active in a bona fide taxpayers' organization.

   (4) For a school district, one member shall be the parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the school district.

   (5) For a school district, one member shall be both a parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the school district and active in a parent-teacher organization, such as the Parent Teacher Association or school site council.

 

An employee or official of the school district shall not be appointed to the citizens' oversight committee.

DISTRICT INFORMATION

  • STUDENT LUNCH ACCOUNTS

Parents, are you looking for an easy way to get a reminder when your child is almost out of lunch money? 

Create an account in www.paypams.com !!!  This service will send automatic email notices when your child's account reaches an amount you determine.  If you want an email when your child's account is at $10, you can set up Paypams to do that.  You can also add funds to your childs account using your credit card (for a small fee).  If you send cash or a check directly to the school, the money is added to your child's account for no fee.  Paypams also allows you to check exactly how your child's lunch money is being used - whether it's for the standard lunch, additional items, etc.

If you need more information check out the Paypams site or call your child's school.

STUDENT LUNCH ACCOUNTS

 Dear Parents, 

Our schools participate in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs.  These federally funded programs allow us to provide free and reduced priced meals to qualified children. In order to participate, we must have a policy which prohibits students from charging meals.  We do understand there may be the odd occasion when a student forgets his/her money.  To accommodate such situations and not hold up the line, we may allow a maximum of two temporary charges to an account.  

In order to avoid the issue of charging or falling behind on payments, many parents have found that pre-paying is a convenient way to insure their child continues to enjoy the nutritious and appealing meals we serve each day. Remember: you always have the option of sending your child with a meal prepared at home.

We encourage parents to pay by the week or the month.  If you have received a charge notice recently, please attend to it immediately.  To do this, simply send a check made payable to “CUSD” with your child to take to the cafeteria, drop off a check at the office,  or put money on your child’s account and track their activity on www.paypams.com

We currently have an unusually large number of students with unpaid meal charges.  Families with unpaid balances will have until December 1, 2012 to pay for all charges on their student’s account.  After December 1st we will be offering an alternative meal* to all students owing charges until the account is brought current or payment arrangements are made with Food Service Director Leasa Hill. 

We recognize that your child may qualify for free meals.   If you feel you may qualify for free or reduced price meals, application forms are available at the school office.  Free or reduced applications may be submitted at any time during the school year and must be re-submitted every year.  Being approved for free lunches/breakfasts does not become retroactive to any outstanding balances.  Applications cannot be pre-dated. 

 If you would like a free / reduced application, need to set up a payment plan, need assistance in setting up your PayPams account, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Terry Weldon at 458-7791 ext. 14115 or Leasa Hill at 458-7791 ext.14121.

 *The alternative meal offered at each school site will be a complete meal meeting government standards consisting of all five components at lunch and three components at breakfast.  The alternative meal does not include a choice of entrée or salad bar offerings. 

 

CUSD now has an official Facebook page:  Like us at www.facebook.com/ColusaUnifiedSchoolDistrict

 PARENT ACCESS TO GRADES ONLINE

We continue to have the process that allows parents to access their child's grades and attendance online (Aeries Browser Interface).  If you have not signed up and would like to use this service, please contact your student's school office for the step-by-step process.  We strongly encourage all parents to take advantage of this opportunity.  You can see excactly which assignments have been turned in and each part of their grade (homework, tests, quizzes, projects, etc.).

Another way to access information about your student's classes is to go to our new district website here at:  http//:colusa.k12.ca.us (click on your child's school).  Many teacher web pages are up and some are under construction.  You can email all teachers through this portal.
