Was there a lawsuit about unequal fundraising within P.A. School District?

Original post made by Cam on Jun 3, 2008

I lived here about 4 years ago and remember reading about a lawsuit filed by E. Palo Alto schools within the P.A. school district, suing b/c there was such a disparity between monies raised. Can anyone tell me how this was resolved? We have a similar situation in my new school district.

Cam,

Although I am not aware of the lawsuit you mention, I can tell you that East Palo Alto is not in PAUSD. In fact EPA is not even in Santa Clara County.

There was no lawsuit with EPA. There was a decision about 6 years ago by the School Board to no longer allow individual schools to fundraise for staff. There was a big variation in the ability of individual elementary schools to fundraise which created some staffing irregularities.
