Tentative Agreement

As Yosh’s email stated last week, our tentative contract agreement is scheduled to go to the School Board for approval on March 12, 2019.  The reason it was not acted on by the Board at the February meeting is due to a delay with the approval process from the Santa Barbara County Education Office. Assembly Bill 1200 requires the SBCEO to approve the tentative agreement before it goes to our School Board. AB1200 is a statewide plan for county offices of education and school districts to work together on the local level to improve fiscal procedures, standards and accountability. It is anticipated, with the School Board’s approval, the retroactive and increase payments for the 2018-19 school year will be reflected on the March pay warrant.

Moving classrooms

In the past, being required to move from one classroom to another, on the same campus, has not been covered by our contract. In some cases teachers were given moving days for involuntary moves and in other cases they were not. The Faculty Association and the District have agreed to create a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that will ensure that teachers can receive up to two (2) moving days for being required to move classrooms on the same campus.

In order to receive these moving days the teacher will need to fill out a timesheet showing that the time spent packing and unpacking was outside of the workday. Additionally, the time spent packing and unpacking must be within eleven (11) working days of the scheduled move. I have attached the signed MOU for your information. Timesheets will be sent from Site Administration and you should receive them a few weeks before your scheduled move.
