MPUSD to look at how money gets distributed

In light of the very harsh report issued last week into MPUSD internal workings, it'd be very interesting to see what happens Thursday, when trustees and the public hear from a very reputable organization and its analysis on how MPUSD allocates its resources.

WestEd, a nonprofit research and development agency which works to improve education, was invited by MPUSD to analyze how it splits up its money pie. Similarly to what the auditors did, WestEd analyzed data, interviewed people, and will give recommendations at a special meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday.

"This study will help MPUSD identify opportunities to optimize how resources are aligned to improve student outcomes, and most importantly, to assist the district in determining whether and how to best implement the recommendations they provide," spokeswoman Marci McFadden wrote in an email.

The meeting will take place at the Instructional Materials Center, 540 Canyon del Rey, Del Rey Oaks. Anybody who's interested in seeing the district move forward in a positive way should be there.
