We strongly encourage you to read the article that was posted Friday (July 19) by the Sacramento Bee. The FCMAT emails referenced in the article express strong concerns regarding the District's fiscal mismanagement and the Board's secrecy and lack of transparency.
In addition, for those who are further interested, we are including the actual emails cited in the story, which include several items not included in the Sacramento Bee story.
Later that same night--March 7--the Sacramento City School Board voted to significantly cut Child Development, and to layoff 170 certificated and 200 classified staff.
At least one board member has confirmed that she was not provided copies of the FCMAT emails, the letter from David Gordon, or Mr. Aguilar's April 1 confirmation email.
The mistake was not made public until the mid-May 2019, where it was included, but not called out, in the middle of the District's Third Interim Budget.
Since then, the District has either rescinded the layoff or made a job offer to all but two of K-12 classroom teachers who were laid off. The District has not yet addressed PE teachers, social workers, counselors or the psychologists who were laid off. The District has also not addressed Child Development.
