What a joke. PAUSD doesn't collect data so nothing can be evaluated. Oh gee, I wonder why....

And let's take our eye off the me too PAMA management raises tied to the teacher's union collective bargaining raises ball, which include absolutely NO performance evaluation and absolutely no accountability ---- by saying that some small number of senior management will be evaluated, so hey, there's no need to focus on the other 50 million, including teachers, who have no accountability and no performance evaluation, but continue to receive step raises, other raises, bonuses, and education credit raises and so on and so forth forevermore! Woo hoo! Without providing academic proficiency to students who aren't so self sufficient....

Oh, and when the managers/administrators don't follow the law, let's just quietly shuffle them around to a different PAUSD job, with nothing in their personnel file.

Meanwhile let's not add any teachers or staff to assist kids in need, like special ed, or send them to alternative schools where they could be better served, or add staff to assist kids with deficits who can't meet a-g requirements, as that would cost more and reduce the pool of money available to give RAISES!!! (to those already on board the train) Let's keep quiet and continue our criminal enterprise of not documenting anything and not serving kids and let's keep everyone quiet through peer pressure and retaliation and bullying and keep that gravy train going, which students who don't need help do just fine, and those who do need help don't get it. Woo hoo! Great job school board!

"Criminal enterprise"? Maybe a little less coffee in the morning would be a good thing...

Yes, well, not documenting complaints that were made to administrators, as PAUSD has done, breaks the law. Not appropriately responding to complaints, as PAUSD has done, breaks the law. The district training and encouraging employees not to document anything to help it avoid liability, as PAUSD has done, according to its own administrators, breaks the law. Not providing an education to students w disabilities so that they make academic progress, and taking federal money, but rather just babysitting them,breaks the law. Shortchanging students of their minimum instructional minutes, as PAUSD has done, breaks the law. Not providing public records upon request, as PAUSD has done, breaks the law. Shuffling those who broke the law from job to job, without taking any disciplinary action against them, as PAUSD has done, is just like the Catholic Church. Using a taxpayer financed student publication to smear a student in an attempt to cover up PAUSD law breaking and save that law breaker's job, as PAUSD has done, is breaking the law. So yes, corrupt and criminal enterprise. But let's make sure to give them a raise school board!
