Message from Dr. Brescia

Earlier this winter I was asked to consider running for the County Superintendent of Schools post. After much thought, I submitted my nomination papers to the County Clerk Recorders Office and will conclude my service as your superintendent at the end of this school year.  My time serving the Cayucos community has been very rewarding and I wish to facilitate your input in selecting my replacement.

Three recruitment firms were requested to submit proposals at the March 12, 2014 board of trustees meeting.  The trustees selected the County Office of Education to conduct the superintendent search.  The search process includes an online survey in which the community has an opportunity to provide input on the characteristics desired in a superintendent for the Cayucos Elementary School District.  The needs of the district and the criteria for selecting a new superintendent will be based upon the input received from the trustees, faculty, staff, students, school families and community members.

All interested parties are invited to attend input sessions on Wednesday, March 19th 10:30- 11:30 a.m. in the gymnasium, Monday, March 24th 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. in the band room. You are also invited to complete an on-line survey.  Please note that the surveys are confidential and designed to provide input for the selection process.

Thank you once again for your continued support of our district and the community of Cayucos.  I look forward to serving the district in the future in my new capacity.  If you have any additional questions, please contact the school office directly.

Residency Requirement

Board of Education policy requires the annual establishment of Cayucos residency to attend Cayucos Elementary School District. “The Superintendent/Principal or designee shall annually verify the student’s residency and retain a copy of the document or written statement offered as verification in the student’s mandatory permanent record. (5 CCR 432).” This verification will take place annually.  In order to comply with this policy we are requiring all families to submit one of the following as residency verification: waste disposal bill, telephone bill, water bill, gas bill, cable/TV bill, PG&E bill and one of the following for residence verification: rental contract, property tax statement or a verification of shared residence (letter).  Verification of residency will be required annually at registration time.

Families that do not maintain Cayucos residency must request an Interdistrict Transfer which will be considered at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Board of Trustees in order to be considered for enrollment at Cayucos Elementary.

Local Control Funding Formula

The 2013–14 budget package replaces the previous K–12 finance system with a new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). For school districts and charter schools, the LCFF creates base, supplemental, and concentration grants in place of most previously existing K–12 funding streams, including revenue limits and most state categorical programs. For county offices of education (COEs), the LCFF creates separate funding streams for oversight activities and instructional programs.

The 2013–14 Budget Act provides $2.1 billion for school districts and charter schools and $32 million for COEs to support the first-year implementation of the LCFF. Until full implementation, however, local educational agencies (LEAs) will receive roughly the same amount of funding they received in 2012–13 plus an additional amount each year to bridge the gap between current funding levels and the new LCFF target levels. The budget projects the time frame for full implementation of the LCFF to be eight years.


We are pleased to once again report that all grade levels indicated positive growth as measured by the Standardized Testing and Reporting System (STAR). This test is an important part of the (STAR) ...more
