LCFF: LCAP

posted Oct 1, 2014, 9:04 PM by Yuba City Teachers Association


Consider the following areas and priorities.  What are we already doing?  What can we do better?  What should be our highest priorities within these areas?  Given a finite amount of resources, we should all consider the needs of our students and our schools and identify areas of strength, areas of need, and our highest priorities.  Dedicating our resources, talents, and energy in the most effective matter to meet the needs of our students and the goals we set for our district requires careful consideration to maximize our results.

Excerpts from the state LCAP guidelines.

YCTA: Do you have at least 60 units after BA or 15 after MA?

posted May 7, 2014, 9:20 AM by Yuba City Teachers Association

If you do not have 60 units after your BA or 15 after your MA, after step 12 you are effectively frozen on the salary schedule and will not begin to earn longevity steps until you have those units. (If you finally earn those units at year 20, you will begin to earn credit towards the steps but will have lost the in between years.)

Completing the form for advanced approval for the units will assure that the District will count those units for credit on salary schedule.

You may also convert professional development hours at workshops into units.  You must have a certificate of the hours from that workshop.  Webinars may also apply.  YCTA will launch a new section of our web page to help our members find professional development opportunities.  If you spot any good ones, send them to Lee Gundy.

Attached is the email from Bruce regarding one opportunity.  Plus I am aware that there is a good summer science workshop at Sac State.  Click here for info.  There will be multiple opportunities for all of us to engage in professional development as we implement the Common Core.  Our profession is one characterized by continual professional growth as we continue to reflect upon and modify our practice.

Even if you have all the units for our salary schedule, it is still wise to keep track of all your professional development hours.

Have a great day,
Dina

YUBA CITY TEACHERS REACH TENTATIVE AGREEMENT

WITH YUBA CITY UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

 

A STEP TOWARD BUILDING PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE FUTURE


WE THANK OUR COMMUNITY 

FOR THEIR ON-GOING SUPPORT AND LOOK FORWARD TO THE FUTURE.


 Thanks in large part to the tremendous support of the Yuba City community, Yuba City Teachers Association and Yuba City Unified School District settled their ongoing contract dispute. 

Yuba City teachers have been asking our District to value and respect us.   Yuba City teachers were asking for a fair contract that provides comparable salaries. We know that comparable salaries attract and retain the best teachers for our students. Our students and our community deserve the highest quality teachers. 

We have reached a tentative agreement that moves us much closer to the state average in salary for teachers.  Equally important was contract language that continues to protect our profession and values our training, experience and education.

Bargaining Chair Steve Jennings commented, “We are pleased that both sides worked together to reach a resolution that values the work of our members.  We hope that we can begin to build a climate of respect and trust.”

The support of our community has assured teachers that we are respected and valuable partners in our community to educate the children of Yuba City. Teachers will continue to ask our community to engage with us in partnership to educate the children of Yuba City.

This agreement will allow Yuba City to take full advantage of an historic opportunity in California education. The Local Control Funding Formula brings decision making to the local level for state money for public education. Developing a collaborative partnership between our parents, community, teachers and the District will be one of the highest priorities for the Yuba City Teachers Association.  YCTA President Dina Luetgens said, “Together, we will all play a role in constructing a local plan that addresses the needs of students in Yuba City.  YCTA looks forward to your continued support and involvement in this new era of education.”
