According to a study by Edunomics Lab, San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten and Board of Education Trustees led by Trustee Tricky Dick Barrera have been taking Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) money away from the neediest schools and spreading it throughout the district to other less needy schools (all south of Interstate 8) since at least the 2017/18 school year.

In an article by LASchool Report titled “Analysis: California gives districts extra money for highest-needs students. But it doesn’t always get to the highest-needs schools” the authors say:

Under California’s Local Control Funding Formula, the San Diego Unified School District’s highest-needs schools generated $1,468 more per student in 2016-17 than the average amount generated across all district schools. Yet, according to our new study, once that money passed through the district, those same neediest schools wound up receiving $127 less per student than the district’s average school.

Here is the study:

The “Portion” chart above shows that Deciles 8, 9 and 10 ALL receive less than the SDUSD 75% average and virtually ALL the schools listed are south of Interstate 8.

This apparent financial mismanagement is just another reason that virtually ALL the neediest schools south of Interstate 8 are struggling.

ALL SDUSD Stakeholders must demand an explanation for this misguided and corrupt budgeting “strategy” from SDUSD Supt. Cindy Marten, Trustee Tricky Dick Barrera and the rest of their cronies!
