The new tentative agreement will put us on par with other school districts in our service area. For the first time in many years, the salary schedule is fixed to benefit members in the long run. This is not a stopgap temporary fix and points us to the future helping us retain teachers and preventing them from possibly moving to another school district! We want to keep our teachers here! Comparatively and reputably, PUSD teachers are some of the most well trained teachers in the area! The Bargaining Team is scheduled to return to negotiations in reopeners starting perhaps in January. Look for continuous updates on their progress. We also want to hear from you! Be on the lookout for ways in which you can contribute, as we value and need your input!
