YCTA Sees Change to School Board Necessary to Restore
Board Integrity and Support for Yuba City Students and the Community


For a better future in their district, the Yuba City Teachers Association (YCTA) has recommended local education advocates Sean Fetters, Brett Hancock and Julie Ann Jackson for the Yuba City Unified School District (YCUSD) School Board. 

The recommendation comes after an extensive interview process, says YCTA President Dina Luetgens. “Unlike the current school board, these candidates are strong advocates for teachers, students and parents. They have pledged to work in collaboration with YCTA, our community and the school district to stand up for students and teachers…and to make sure resources intended for the classroom stay in the classroom.”

Sean Fetters thoroughly understands the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) and believes all stakeholders should be consulted when allocating funds for programs, materials and salaries. Fetters attended YCUSD schools and is a teacher at Los Plumas High School in Oroville.

Brett Hancock has vowed to rebuild communication and respect between teachers and the district. He has served on the Barry School Site Council and believes students should be the district’s top priority. Hancock is a police sergeant for the City of Woodland.

Julie Ann Jackson has a working knowledge of school budgets, having served on the school board and the LCAP committee in Woodland. A retired school librarian, she values and respects students and teachers.  Jackson has worked in education for over 30 years.


The Yuba City Teachers Association is a chapter of the 325,000-member California Teachers Association,
which is affiliated with the 3 million-member National Education Association.
