The Need for an Accurate Record

"Children are one third of our population and all of our future"

First Posted Jan. 2013

In an effort to better protect and serve the students, teachers, and support staff of CUSD, I am asking for assistance (information) from the Calaveras educational community. For many years it has been to the benefit of Calaveras Unified not to keep records or track information on critical health, maintenance, and management issues as they have occurred on school sites and campuses. By not keeping a record there is no history to refer to, no visible pattern or exposure of poor behavior or neglectful decisions. When there is no history to refer to, classrooms closed for mold (and repaired for mold) didn't actually happen; the classrooms were just randomly repaired and reopened for no apparent reason. Furthermore, there is no record (or evidence) of staff or students ever becoming ill while in the “randomly repaired” classrooms. Records matter. Records keep us from repeating poor decisions. When there is no history to refer to, complaints of neglectful administrative behavior go undocumented and unresolved; leaving no visible pattern (or history) of unprofessional behavior to correct or refer to. 

A record (as accurate as possible) needs to be generated in order to better serve and protect the current CUSD students and staff.


If you have questions, concerns, information, or documentation that you would like to share, discuss, or add to the written record, I can be contacted by email at:
