One Time Discretionary Funding Survey
Dear Chico Unified School District (CUSD) Community,
Below is a link to a survey seeking input on how CUSD should spend the
recent one-time discretionary funding provided in the 2015-2016 state budget.
The funds are based on Average Daily Attendance (ADA) in the amount of $530 per
ADA, totaling an estimated $5,868,086 for CUSD.
Please note, items
included in this survey are largely one-time expenditures in recognition the
funding we are receiving is one-time. The intent is not to limit responses but
to recognize the one-time nature of the funding. Results will be collected for
discussion with the School Board in late summer or early fall.
To access the survey, please visit: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QFXGNTT
Thank you for your time and assistance in developing a plan to spend
these one-time discretionary funds.
