SRO Questionnaire and Survey

The school board is asking for classified input as to the role and effectiveness of SROs.  Please complete the following Survey: The survey is anonymous.  Your e-mail address or name will not be asked for or collected.

Charter School Application

A commercial entity has submitted an application to operate a charter school in Rancho Cordova to the FCUSD school board.  This application will be reviewed at the 10/21/21 school board meeting at the ESC.  A charter school of this type doesn't have to confirm to state and federal requirements, and takes students from our district.  This decreases ADA funding to our district.  This takes away jobs - classified and certificated, from our district.  If you would like to speak at the upcoming board meeting against this then e-mail or call Chapter President Rob Thomas or CSEA Labor Relations Rep Dominic Gualco (their contact info is in the left column of this page, Rob can also be reached via district e-mail).

Pay Increases

Ratification vote for additional pay raises at the October Chapter Meeting.  See you there.
