Challenge: CUSD has above average schools and below average funding.
CUSD schools rank among the highest in the world. CUSD students attend prestigious universities, work at Silicon Valley’s elite technology companies, and change the world every day. And yet, CUSD receives below average funding per student -- approximately $5,000 less per student than the national average. Superintendent Dr. Craig Baker presented at Cupertino Middle School on March 6th to explain this funding phenomenon. The data can be found here.
Solution: CUSD25: We’re In It Together!
The solution is a unified, district-wide funding initiative, lead by Cupertino Educational Endowment Foundation (CEEF), to continue to provide extraordinary teachers and staff, as well as teaching supplies, to benefit ALL 25 SCHOOLS and create an equitable educational experience for all CUSD students.
We invite you to invest $25 per month per student to support CUSD25. Please sign up at cusd25.org, or complete and return the CUSD25 donation form your child brought home. Our goal is to have all families contribute to support our excellent schools. Let’s show everyone what we can do when We’re In It Together! Our children deserve it!
All of us at CUSD and CEEF want to thank you in advance for your contribution!
CMS offers a Homework Center Monday through Thursday from 3:00 - 4:00 in the school library starting August 27. The Homework Center is supervised by a teacher, and students will have access to technology and the necessary resources to complete assignments. The Homework Center is offered on a drop-in basis; no registration is necessary. Arrangements should be made so that students are picked up or walk directly home no later than 4:00 as there is no campus supervision after that time.
