Q − Statewide, Two At-Large Directors − Statewide CTA Board Expenses Amounts represent a monthly average for fiscal year 2014- 15. During the reporting year, the normal and statewide activities include CTA Board meetings, State Council, Service Center Council meetings, Equity and Human Rights Conference, Good Teaching Conference, various task force meetings and other business related functions. Some differences in expenditures may be due to the widely varied geographical sizes of directorial districts, distances traveled for Regional, Service Center and other meetings, and the varied number of functions CTA Direc- tors are responsible for attending. Expenses of Board members with partial-year service are averaged based on months served and delineated with an asterisk. Copyright © 2013, SpatiaLogic.

No Rocketship in Contra Costa County On Oct. 21, the Contra Costa County Board of Education refused to allow R o cke t ship E du cation to creat e one of its charter schools in Contra Costa County. The Mt. Diablo Education Asso- ciation had fought the expansion of Redwood City-based Rocketship since the prominent private opera- tor of charter schools submitted its petition to the Mt. Diablo Unified School District (MDUSD) in July. e MDUSD board rejected the petition in August, and the county board upheld its objections. ese included concerns about adequate staffing to educate English learners, its use of noncredentialed teachers, and insuf- ficient clarity about its finances and board representation. At the public hearing prior to the vote, MDEA members and parents warned that a Rocketship school would drain support from the dis- trict's public schools. Rocketship is expected to appeal.
