Profession:Real Estate Investments
University of California Berkeley BS, MBA , Business, specifically finance (1979)

I have a BS and MBA from UC Berkeley, and worked for several banks and a technology company before staying home to raise my children.  I have worked on behalf of education for 27 years serving in many capacities--budget committees, Sober Grad Night, PTC President, raised money and constructed a $100,000 shade pavilion, promoted elementary Art and Science Docent programs, interviewed key personnel and participated in the growth of a private educational foundation.  I am currently active with the California School Boards Association and sit on the board of directors, concerned with statewide education matters.

I have been married for 35 years, and raised four children, all of whom were products of public education through high school and university.

My focus in my adult life has been education.  I still see education as being the equalizer and it is more important than ever for our state to educate our children.  For the past 12 years, I have served on the Board of the Roseville Joint Union HSD, primarily to ensure opportunities for each of our 10,000 students, and keep the focus on academics.  I was instrumental in bringing the International Baccalaureate program to our district, and was responsible for the creation of an online Personal Finance course graduation requirement.

Funding to schools

A recent law made major changes in the way that the state allocates funding to schools.  What will you do to ensure that the public understands your local control formula for school spending and your plan to measure outcomes?

Answer from Rene Aguilera:

The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) was signed into law on July 13, 2013 that ended categorical funding for schools.  The LCCF shifted to local school district, the decision-making authority over how to allocate resources to meet students' needs and target additional funding to educate high-needs populations (low income, English learner and foster youth).

Our School District is in our third year of implementation and requires that parents and other community members be engaged in the decision-makling proce our District Staffss. Each year, our District engages as many stakeholders as we can in morning, afternoon and evening meetings out in the community and upon complettion of our LCFF Plan, our District than send a completed application of the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), to the Placer County Offices of Educations for approval.

As one of five School Board Trustees up for re-election, I will continue to ensure that the public through communimty meetings with stakeholders add input to the LCAP and that from year-to-year we measure outcomes with data and actual monies spent.
