This document showing the EUSD board approval of $800,000 for health and wellness (aka yoga) was obtained by a special records request. It was discussed and approved at the special board meeting on April 26. There is not a link on the EUSD website. There is not one mention of the word yoga. This was a special board meeting to discuss a budget related item (not an emergency which is the true purpose of special meetings which allow only 24 hours notice to the public).I'm guessing some of that $800,000 is also going to "Healthy Day Partners" for running the vegetable garden. In any case, the district could certainly be more transparent.
This money came out of the general fund. Last year Baird asked for special permission of the state board to allow the $10 million Pacific View money (which by law should have went to a one time use) to be put in the general fund. This allows for no accountability of the money to the taxpayers. It was approved by the state.
Baird sits on the yoga board for the Jois Foundation.
