Distrust and Unrest Created by 2 CUSD Admin Wage Increases

On June 24, 2014, two CUSD administrators (Director of Personnel Liz Stanko and Director of Fiscal Services Titia Ashby) were each approved wage increases of $16K a year.           

  • Director of Personnel moved from $74K to $90K--a $16K annual increase
  • Director of Fiscal Services moved from $74K to $90K--a $16K annual increase
  • Together the 2 administrative wage increases total $32K.

1. These wage increases show favoritism to administration. On July 22, 2014 due to financial uncertainty and distress, the Union for the Calaveras Unified support staff--CSEA--was denied a negotiated wage increase by the CUSD Board of Trustees.
2. These wage increases create a wedge of distrust and unrest between the CUSD administration and the district's support staff (CSEA).
3. These wage increases were not fully and completely explained during the June 24th meeting and gives the appearance of manipulation and deceit.
4. These wage increases appear to cause (or add to) the district's current and ongoing financial distress.
5. These wage increases make it harder for the public to fully believe in the district's ongoing claim of transparency.
