Teachers Offer Concepts to Put Students, 

Teachers Back in School-

The Yuba City Teachers held a news conference today at Riverbend School to share the latest concept that could end the four-day teacher strike. YCTA teachers, speech and language pathologists, nurses, counselors, school psychologists and coaches have been on strike since September 8 after reaching impasse over the 2015-16 school year. 


Statement by YCTA President Dina Luetgens

We are again submitting innovative and responsible concepts to reach a deal that will help attract and retain great teachers for our students now and in the future. Our concepts are focused on what our students and teachers need.


We know and understand that no real education has gone in classrooms while we’ve been out, and that breaks our hearts. We are working hard to meet the YCUSD in the middle.  We believe this compromise resolves the impasse for 2015-16, works within the district’s offer of 11.1% and gets our teachers and students back in the classroom.


This is a reasonable and responsible compromise that can put our students back in the classroom tomorrow.

Specifically, this is a two-year deal using the district’s offer of 11.1% without the strings attached.


We hope the YCUSD team will accept this concept and help us end this strike.
