|ICEF Vista Director Buczek having parents |
perform facilities duties in violation of co-location contract
Ms. Buzcek was told that no she could not have parents volunteers perform facilities work since: 1) the co-location agreement clearly states that LAUSD is in charge of facilites on the entire campus including the charter's part of campus and 2) giving facilities work to volunteer parents would take away work from unionized LAUSD employees.
However, today Ms Buzcek appeared to ignore the terms of the co-location agreement and the recommendation of the CCC and chose to use ICEF Vista parents to perform the work she was told they could not do.

I reminded her that she had already been told at the campus co-location committee meeting that parents could not perform facilities duties. She quickly changed her tune and said that they were leaving and denied saying that they were cleaning.
Fortunately, in the video I took of the interaction you can clearly hear her say "they are cleaning" and see her point to leaves on the ground. Plus, the parents are holding a broom, rake and trash can. One parent was later seen hauling trash bags full of pine needles.
Wow, it appears that ICEF may be violating the terms of the co-location agreement.
Buckle your seatbelts and make sure your devices are full charged, this is going to be an awesome adventure in co-location!***
