PODCAST. Yesterday, 9/29/2020, I sat down with Cabrillo Unified School District Trustee, Sophia Layne, in her Half Moon Bay backyard and we had an informative chat about funding on the Coastside, which was already complicated…and now Covid, makes funding even more complicated.
Apologies for some of the background noises. It is much more difficult to control background sound in a suburban backyard. Yes, that is a wood chipper towards the end! Welcome to Covid podcasts.
- Financial stability to maintain local control and progress towards thriving
- What is California’s Local Control Funding Formula for public schools?

Description and Mission
The Cabrillo Unified School District is located just south of San Francisco on the beautiful Pacific Coast. The District was established on July 1, 1965 and encompasses an area of approximately 135 square miles. The District currently operates four elementary schools, one intermediate school, one high school, a continuation school, and an adult education program.
The mission of the Cabrillo Unified School District – an exemplary learning community committed to valuing our distinct cultural identities – is to develop critical thinkers and socially responsible citizens who actively participate in their individual learning and development and are fully prepared to embrace their next challenge. We accomplish this by utilizing our unique natural resources and engaging the entire Coastside community and its partners in providing a rich and academically rigorous curriculum in a safe and nurturing environment.
