Education Protection Account

With the passage of Proposition 30, which temporarily increases the personal income tax rates for upper-income taxpayers and the sales tax rate for all taxpayers, the state officially established the Education Protection Account (EPA). Revenue generated from the increased taxes are deposited into the EPA and later distributed to districts and charter schools.

While funds from the EPA are part of a district’s or charter school’s general purpose funding, Proposition 30 specifies that EPA funds may not be used for salaries or benefits of administrators or any other administrative costs.

FY 2014-15 Education Protection Account Expenditures

Teacher Salaries: $9,490
TOTAL: $9,490

FY 2015-16 Education Protection Account Expenditures

FY 2016-17 Education Protection Account Spending Plan

In FY 2016-17, EPA funds are estimated to be $90,992. The spending plan for Thrive Public School, approved by the governing board, allocates these funds to support teacher salaries.

Confidential Student Information

There is ongoing litigation between the California Department of Education and the Concerned Parent Association. A notice issued by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson states, “The lawsuit accuses CDE of widespread, systemic non-compliance by local educational agencies with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Section 504. The CDE denies these allegations and is actively defending the litigation.”

The court has ordered CDE to release student and parent information to provide personally identifiable information (PII) – an act that can only be taken as an exception to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). As a result, we are providing notice of the court order and directions to anyone wishing to object.

Please be advised that CDE will notify parents or students of whom are required to disclose information and those individuals may object directly to the court regarding this disclosure using this PDF link: http://www.cde.ca.gov/re/di/ws/documents/form2016jan26.pdf 

Thrive personalizes learning for all students. This means that everyone has a personalized learning plan. In case you want to know more about how we specifically support students with exceptional needs you can read this quick overview.

Our Charter

As a charter school, we also put our plan in writing. That written plan for our school is called a charter. The charter for Thrive is over 500 pages long and includes research, best practices and strategies that we use at all levels to assure success for our students.  Our charter was approved by the state board of education to serve students in grades TK-12.
