CUSD is in rapid decline. CUSD just experienced its steepest enrollment decline in the county, amongst 31 districts, an amzing feat for the largest K-8 district in Northern California. It’s one thing to be average but this is beyond the pale. Besides enrollment, our academic rankings have also declined for the first time in years. Instructional minutes are trending down, electives are fewer than all of our neighbors and our camps are getting replaced by Zoom. PTAs (Parent Teacher Associations) are literally begging for money to preserve Art, Music and even Librarians. This is not the CUSD we experienced when we chose Cupertino. This is systematic mismanagement and maleficence by our Recallees. They have exacerbated this decline by focusing on their own agendas instead of kids.

When they are asked, they claim it’s the same as county average but this is a lie. Whether it be school reopening, school closures or more, our Recallees are dividing this community, claiming disinformation and harassment while they protect their own special interests. They literally said they followed Education Code on school closures. Whether school closures were warranted or not, they absolutely did not follow Ed Code, another obscene lie.

CUSD is in an existential crisis. Parents are leaving in droves. While CUSD experienced the steepest decline in the county, CUSD was one of only a few districts that actually grew in terms of kids per household. Where are these kids going? They are not going to CUSD. To fix this is going to require a community effort. We need to start by installing Board Members who represent kids first and are not beholden to their donors. We need Board meetings that focus on kids and not the feelings of our Recallees. We need leaders who will bring the community together and not divide with toxic and callous statements towards parents. We need management that can re-earn the trust of parents and can actually pass a parcel tax rather than being the first and only set of Board Members to have two failed parcel tax attempts in their same term in CUSD history.

Please support the recall. We must save CUSD. Do it for the community. #MakeCUSDGreatAgain
