    OUSD 2016 Bond information on Next Board Agenda
    Trustees are asked to approve another $20,000 for a second 2016 Bond survey
    The Orange Unified School Board will meet on Thursday April 11, 2016 and continue discussing the all but approved next OUSD Facilities Bond targeted for the 2016 November General Election.  This weeks Agenda includes three items related to the  all-but-approved November 2016 Facilities Bond.

    In Agenda Item 13 B ( page 30),  Bonnie Moss partner in the OUSD contracted Oakland based political strategy consultant firm  of CliffordMoss, will return to the OUSD Board with a report described in the Agenda item as "a further update in the School facilities Assessment and Project Planning process" .   

    The Agenda description for Item 13B also reviews the prior presentations the OUSD Board has received on the Facilities Bond planning process, including the prior reports from Ms. Moss at the November 5, 2015 meeting and the  January 21, 2016 meeting. 

    Those previous three reports are part of the contract the OUSD Trustees approved at the July 23, 2015 OUSD Board meeting when they voted to pay CliffordMoss up to $78,000 for their consultant services.

    Also presenting at the January 21st meeting was Dr. Tim McLarney-President of the Encinitas headquartered True North Research-the polling consultant also  hired by OUSD. This week's agenda reminds the OUSD Board that at the January meeting Dr. McLarney presented "methodology, results and conclusion of the polling results survey"  for a future Facilities Bond.

    McLarney's report on the poll was part of the contract that the OUSD Board also approved at their July 23, 2015 meeting when they voted to pay True North Research up to $50,000 for polling and consulting services.

    Now, with that 2016 Bond process all but completed-except for a vote to place it on the November ballot- the OUSD Administration is asking for $20,000 more for True North Research in the April 14th Consent Item. 

    On page 40 under the Contract Services Report portion of the Consent Agenda ( voted on as a whole without debate or discussion) another $20,000 is asked for True North Research. The Agenda Item states "Additional funds are necessary to conduct and present methodology, results and conclusions of a second survey" 

    Agenda Item 13 A ( page 29) lists the  informational item's topic as: High School Classroom, Laboratory and Facilities needs to Support 21st Century Teaching and Learning in a Safe Environment.  The presentation will involve the first time all four of OUSD's comprehensive high school principals will present a facilities report at the same time.  

    According to the OUSD Agenda, the four principals "will address their specific school site academic priorities and facilities needs..." .

    Since the OUSD Board has not voted to place the Bond on the ballot yet, OUSD continues to engage the community on facilities needs. Following the facilities presentations by the four principals this week at the OUSD Board meeting, the OUSD Administration will be hosting  four town hall style meetings later this month at each of the high schools.  The first meeting will be on Thursday April 21 at Canyon High School, The following week  on Monday April 25 a town hall will take place at Villa Park High School followed the next night, Tuesday April 26th at El Modena High School.  The final town hall will be on Thursday April 28th at Orange High School

    All town halls will begin at 6:00 pm and will include tours of the current facilities.  No tours are scheduled for comparison of the few OUSD schools already remodeled for 21st Century learning with previously available redevelopment and state funds.

    Looking for Republican endorsement- 
    Trustee Deligianni-Brydges touts opposition to failed OUSD Measure K  Bond
    The OC Political blog - run by OUSD Trustee Dr. Alexia Deligianni-Brydges' friend and political ally Chris Ngyuen- live blogged the March 19th Orange County California  Republican Assembly endorsement meeting. 

    Deligianni-Brydges is running for the 68th Assembly District seat.

    In the live blog, Nguyen describes the Deligianni-Brydges touting herself as an "educator" and a two-term trustee who voted against the OUSD Bond measure and her opposition to Common Core- as well as her political views:

    Alexia Deligianni-Brydges speaks of volunteering for Republican causes. She points to her OCYR service, having been CRA State Vice President, and having started the Orange-Villa Park CRA unit. She speaks of her family fleeing from Communism, and citing that as a reason she opposes socialism and liberal ideas. She states she is a real estate businesswoman and educator.

    She has served two terms on the school board and was the sole vote on the school board against a bond.

    She opposes Common Core. She supports cutting taxes.

    A delegate asks about her CRA unit’s growth.
    She says she grew it from nothing, as she founded it. She speaks of monthly meetings. She says she since passed its leadership on to others.

    A delegate asks about how she plans to lower taxes since she stated it.

    She blasts Prop 30 as an anti-business tax.

    She expresses concern about jobs fleeing California.

    Evidence of Deligianni-Brydges' stalled campaign can easily be seen in her campaign's social media platforms. As of this posting her Twitter account has had only 8 tweets since being set up in December of last year and has no postings to her 5 followers since March 12th. (Click on  https://twitter.com/Alexia4Assembly).

    After converting her personal Facebook age into her campaign page in December of last year, Deligianni-Brydges has posted eight campaign type posts.  Her last on March 17th invited 248 people to a fundraiser- 8 people responded they would attend.

    This week Deligianni-Brydges did get some more press. The Sacramento Bee in an article on Republican Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz listed Deligianni- Brydges as one of 13 Orange County public officials who have endorsed Cruz.  
    (Click on SAC BEE ).

    Ultimately the delegates of the Orange County California  Republican Assembly endorsed former Villa Park Councilwomen Deborah Paul for the 68th Assembly.

    OUSD neighborhood of Panorama Heights home of Panorama ES petitions to leave for Tustin Unified
    Information  Item 13 C on Thursday's agenda is a report on the impact to OUSD of a petition for the neighborhood of Panorama Heights to leave OUSD and join Tustin Unified.

    On April 7, 2016 the Orange County Registrar of Voters confirmed a petition from the Panorama Heights neighborhood to leave Orange Unified to join Tustin Unified. The California Education Code requires 25% of the registered voters to sign the petition.

     Located between OUSD's El Modena High School and TUSD's Foothill High School, the Panorama Heights area is often associated with North Tustin as it sits at the intersection of Orange, Tustin and Santa Ana.  The area is home to OUSD's Panorama Elementary School which is located in Santa Ana at 10512 Crawford Canyon Road.

    The specific boundaries of the transfer which had to be included in the petition and whether that territory includes OUSD's Panorama Elementary School are expected to be revealed in the OUSD Staff report.  

    A meeting of the Orange County Committee on School District Organization (OCCSDO)  is scheduled to take up the issue on May 17, 2016.  The OCCSDO has 120 days after the hearing to approve or deny the petition. 

    According to the California Education Code, several steps must be taken including:
    (a) The county committee [OCCSDO] may add to the petition any of
    the appropriate provisions specified in Article 3 (commencing with
    Section 35730) which were not included in the petition as filed and
    may amend any such provision which was so included.
       (b) At least 10 days before the public hearing, or hearings, on
    the petition, the county committee shall make available to the public
    and to the governing boards affected by the petition a description
    of the petition, including all of the following:
       (1) The rights of the employees in the affected districts to
    continued employment.
       (2) The revenue limit per unit of average daily attendance for
    each affected district and the effect of the petition, if approved,
    on such revenue limit.
       (3) Whether the districts involved will be governed, in part, by
    provisions of a city charter and, if so, in what way.
       (4) Whether the governing boards of any proposed new district will
    have five or seven members.
       (5) A description of the territory or districts in which the
    election, if any, will be held.
       (6) Where the proposal is to create two or more districts, whether
    the proposal will be voted on as a single proposition.
       (7) Whether the governing board of any new district will have
    trustee areas and, if so, whether the trustees will be elected by
    only the voters of that trustee area or by the voters of the entire
    district.
       (8) A description of how the property, obligations, and bonded
    indebtedness of existing districts will be divided.
       (9) A description of when the first governing board of any new
    district will be elected and how the terms of office for each new
    trustee will be determined.

    OUSD Trustee Deligianni-Brydges  and
    Former Villa Park Councilwoman Deborah Pauly in crowded 68th Assembly Race
    Dr. Deligianni-Brydges
    With the Friday 3/11/16  election filing period deadline,  it's official that OUSD Trustee Deligianni-Brydges  and Villa Park Councilwomen Deborah Pauly are in the crowded race for the 68th Assembly Seat. A total of seven candidates are seeking the seat being vacated by termed-out Assemblyman Donald Wagner.

    Former VP Councilwomen Deborah Pauly

    Both  Deligianni-Brydges  and Pauly  had previously announced their candidacy and had already started campaigning and taken part in a candidate forum.



    Pauly who is no stranger to controversy having made national headlines with her firebrand Tea Party-style pronouncements against Muslims and Obama-care, made more headlines after annoucing her campign then being arrested and accused of DUI in an drving accident. 

    In September of last year, Pauly was arrested in Anaheim for hitting a parked car while driving and charged with DUI. Her trial proceedings on the DUI charge are set to start in May.  

    Media reports had her  DUI controversy morphing into another anti-Muslim rant with reports of her blaming Muslim groups in remarks to police officers the night of her arrest and then blaming Muslim groups for leaking her arrest to the media.

    Pauly has also publicly blamed her divorce proceedings for contributing to the DUI arrest.

    This is OUSD Trustee Dr. Alexia Deligianni-Brydges' second run for a state office.  In 2010, two years after being elected to her first term on the OUSD Board,  Deligianni ran for California State Superintendent of Public Instruction.  With twelve people on the June 2010 primary ballot, Deligianni came in 8th with  4.8% of the vote.   (Click on: Deligianni )

    In this year's Assembly race, real-estate agent Deligianni is casting herself as an "independent-business women". Deligianni who has had her real estate license since 2010 actually works through Ricci Real Estate in Orange. (Deligiani Job )

    Deligianni had announced intentions to run for Assembly on her  Facebook page at the end of last year.  Initial fundraising showsed that she raised $43,000 in contibutions-$40,000 from herself and the rest mostly from family members.(Click on FUNDRAISING)

    In her Facebook announcement she had promoted her website as www.AlexiaMeansBuisness. That domain was dropped for her new website domain: www.votealexia.com

    Her domain was registered by Sacramento based Dawn Dias who lists herself on her blog as "freelance writer, designer and filmaker".  Her books include: Sh!t No One Tells You About Toddlers & The Sh!t No One Tells You: A Guide to Surviving Your Baby's First Year. 

    On her website, Deligianni's campaign consultant Dias explains:
    Dawn lives in Sacramento, CA, with her partner, two kids, two dogs, two cats, and the occasional mouse brought into the home by said cats.  She is tired.

    Chris Ngyuen

    In the recent Area 1 Trustee appointment debacle, Deligianni passed over voting for now Trustee Andrea Yamasaki and Timothy Surridge's hand picked candidate Greg Salas for Deligianni's close friend, former campaign manager and Orange County Political blogger-Chris Nguyen.





    Both Deligianni and Pauly worked against the last Orange Unified School District Facilities Bond-Measure K.  


    Deligianni's website and Facebook page calls for lower gasoline prices and states that she will fight for lower gasoline prices-but does not indicate how she will accomplish this goal over the multi-national petroleum companies-or as a member of the minority party in an overwhelmingly Democratic State Legislature.  



    In a recent community forums Deligianni has spoken against Common Core and mandatory public school vaccinations.  




    Deligianni's recent Facebook page picture update has a photo of her with Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.
     






    The other candidates are: Irvine Mayor Steven Choi; Former Anaheim City Councilman Harry Sidhu; Anaheim Cultural and Heritage Commissioner Konstantinos Roditis; Attorney Jay Panahi; and Non-profit Executive Brian Chuchua.   

    The two top vote getters on June 7th will face each other in the November 2016 General Election.

    OUSD going to mediation over Peralta Golf Partnership lawsuit
    The Orange Unified School District will be going to mediation over a lawsuit Orange Unified School District v Peralta Golf Partnership et al. The lawsuit is with the former operators of the Super Sports Golf and Recreation Center complex at the former 20-acre Peralta School site-

    Peralta Golf Partnerships held the lease at the site from 1994 until March of 2015  after the OUSD Trustees voted in 4-3 against extending the lease in February 2015. Led by OUSD Trustee Timothy Surridge- the OUSD Board voted to sub-lease the site directly to three groups (Olive Crest School, Arena Soccer Club and  Tennis Specialists) that had been subletting the site From Peralta Golf Partners.  OUSD also found a new operator for the sports complex Drotter LLC.
                                                                                              
    Drotter LLC is owned by Jason Drotter, the former coach of the Villa Park High School boy's and girls' golf teams for six years who was the current the head coach of the CSUF men's golf program in addition to managing the Super Sports complex for Peralta Golf Partners.


    Surridge openly displayed contempt toward the owners of Peralta Golf Partners during meetings that the owners appeared before the Board trying to save their lease after Surridge's plan to lease the property to an apartment developer fell apart as well as his next plan to sell the property.




    Surridge stated that he wanted to maximize the dollars from the site by cutting out Peralta Golf Partners as a middle man as he lead the effort to deny Peralta Golf Partners a month-to-month lease and then to terminate the lease.

    Trustees Kathy Moffat, Dr. Alexia Deligiani-Brydges and Diane Singer voted against ending the relationship with Peralta Golf Partners.

    Yamasaki set to take OUSD seat
    The Orange Unified School Board Agenda for Thursday March 10, 2016 tentatively has Andrea Yamasaki taking her seat after a landslide win in the Special Election for the Area 1  Trustee Seat.


    Now just waiting for the Orange County Registrar of Voters to certify the election results, Community Advocate Andrea Yamasaki won with 74.9% over her establishment endorsed opponent Greg Salas.  Voter turn out was 19.6%  in the first ever OUSD all-mail-in vote. 


    Expecting the certification of the election by Thursday,  Yamasaki will have public swearing in at the Board Meeting ( she will be officially be sworn in as soon as the election results are certified).

    In a clear rebuke of the Orange County Republican Establishment, Orange Unified Republican voters joined with Democrats and Independents and elected Community Advocate Andrea Yamasaki over Republican Establishment Endorsed Greg Salas.  

    Winning 74 % of the vote, Yamasaki easily won election after her supporters ousted Salas by petition from his appointed post.

    Yamasaki won based on her community connections over Salas who's main community connection was that he played on a basketball team with OUSD Trustee Timothy Surridge who admitted he had recruited Salas for the vacancy on the OUSD Board after the resignation of Diane Singer.     

    Even after being rebuffed by the community in a petition, Salas forced the district to spend over $500,000 on a Special Election by entering the election. 

    While Yamasaki conducted a flawless campaign,  Salas struggled to have a campaign of any significant meaning and could go down as one of the worst local campaigns ever waged.

    OUSD Board President Ledesma moves OUSD Board forward

    Long-time school district watchers are reporting that Orange Unified School District  Board  of Trustees President Rick Ledesma has put forth one of the most  unifying and forward looking OUSD Agenda's in years for the February 18, 2016 OUSD Board Meeting.

    Ledesma added two items under his name. In Agenda Action Item 12 C (page 23) Ledesma asks for permission to communicate on behalf of the OUSD Trustees to parent school group leaders to invite them to OUSD Board meetings learn more about a possible facilities bond and then share that information with their stakeholder communities.  Inviting parent group leaders does hold perils for the OUSD Board if the often contentious decorum behind the dais that has been on display for years continues.

    The second Ledesma initiative is Agenda Information Item 13 ( page 27).  Ledesma is seeking a Board conversation on allocating some of the district's one-time monies directly to schools. The idea appears to be similar to the  1990's "devolution" block grants that Congress passed ( most facing a President Clinton veto) to enhance opportunities for states to have the flexibility to oversee more local needs, but in OUSD's case letting the schools decide on how best to use the monies at the school level.

    Also on the agenda is an item from Trustee Kathy Moffat.  For years Moffat's advocacy for the OUSD Board of Education to hold more than one meeting a month has gone nowhere.  During Thursday's OUSD Board Meeting ,  Moffat's request will finally get an open hearing as Action Item 12B (page 22).  

    Could all this focus on the business of education be a new beginning for the OUSD Board after the disastrous 2015 Year of Politics?  After 2015 started with a failed  attempt to sell the Peralta Site and ended with an all out voter revolt and removal of the political appointment of Greg Salas- could it really be that OUSD turned a corner under Ledesma?
    Only time will tell.

    Local Political Establishment backlash

     eLECTION 2016
    Orange Net News /O/N/N/
    OUSD Trustee Mark Wayland endorses Area 1 candidate Andrea Yamasaki

    Area 1 candidate Andrea Yamasaki

    The Andrea Yamasaki campaign for the Orange Unified School District Area 1 Trustee Seat released a press release this week announcing the endorsement of OUSD Trustee Mark Wayland.



    Wayland has been leading the charge against Yamasaki's opponent
    Greg Salas
    Greg Salas since Salas filed to run for the seat.  Wayland took Salas to court over the Salas campaign statement and has become a local anti-establishment hero from people across the political spectrum for taking on the Orange County Republican Establishment for endorsing Salas.   



    Trustee Mark Wayland
    Wayland joined a unique club of Greater Orange officials who over the years have taken candidates to court over false candidate statements and won.  Wayland, while not on the ballot, took exception to Yamasaki's opponent Greg Salas candidate statement that claimed and endorsement from Wayland and tried to fool voters into believing that Salas was an incumbent.

    Wayland- a lifelong Republican- expressed  frustration with the local Party Establishment on their Facebook page.  Wayland writing he is "disappointed in this endorsement" writes about the OUSD Area 1 contest between candidates Greg Salas and Andrea Yamasaki that:  "The differences between the two candidates could not be more stark. Just because someone puts an R next to their name, does not mean that they are the best candidate for the position." 

    Wayland is the first local leader to articulating the current political mood against ruling Establishment Ruling Class in both parties that is sweeping the country. Wayland  admonished the local Establishment: "Look to Washington if you need to be reminded. We have been completely sold out by the "Republicans" in the Senate and in Congress. How many of these turn coats got in to office because they had a R next to their name?"

    Since the instant Wayland voted to appoint Salas over Yamasaki against the will of the  Anaheim Hills community, Wayland has taken responsibility in his own press releases.  The Yamasaki press release quotes Wayland's  already public mea culpa :
    “I take responsibility for my vote that led to the recall because I did not do my job and vet the two candidates for the appointment,” he admitted.  “I regretted my vote almost immediately after I did it.  But I will not make the same mistake twice.”

    Party Chairman Whitaker
    Ironically, the local Political Establishment Chairperson is another Greater Orange Leader-who should know better  about Greater Orange schools - Orange City Councilman Fred Whitaker. 

    Other Greater Orange leaders who have endorsed Yamasaki are Villa Park Mayor Greg Mills and Orange City Councilmembers Mike Alverez and Kimberly Nichols. In addition, the Peralta Neighborhood  has endorsed Yamasaki. 

    The ballots in the All-Vote-by mail election must be mailed by Tuesday March 4th, 2016.
