Economics

This year’s economic discussion has centered heavily on the TSA. The funds provided by the state are limited and must be expended in accordance with statute to improve minimum pay for full-time classroom teachers. Additional dollars kicked in by the Board can be bargained much more flexibly. In early September, CCEA and District team leaders met to discuss financials informally and to review statutory requirements, as well as to identify concerns associated with the mandates: salary compression, achieving competitive starting salary level, and ensuring raises are distributed as equitably as possible.

Proposal History

9/21/20

  • CCEA opens TSA discussion suggesting a ‘banded’ approach to distribution of the funds to minimize compression created in raising minimum salaries; the District’s position is that ‘banding’ is not allowable by statute
  • District’s opening proposal brought ONLY TSA funds to the table; would create a $43,455 minimum salary and a 1.1% increase for all others
  • CCEA requested additional district dollars ($1.5million) to ensure a minimum $1650 adjustment for all instructional

9/22/20

  • District’s first counter placed additional district dollars ($2.4million) to further increase the minimum salary to $46,000 and providing a $1375 guarantee for all instructional

9/24/20

  • CCEA countered with a redistribution of the district’s dollars ($2.4million) to achieve a minimum salary of $44,850 while providing a guaranteed improvement ranging from $1395 to $1895, based on years of service
  • District’s second counter further increased additional district dollars ($2.47million) to provide a $46,000 minimum salary with a guarantee of $1500 for all instructional
  • CCEA’s follow up request met the Board’s request for a $46,000 minimum while pushing for an $1800 guarantee

10/6/20

  • District did not return to the table with a response

10/14/20

  • District responded to CCEA’s proposal with $46,000 minimum and $1500 guarantee, plus $10 increase in Board insurance match to cover premium increases

10/22/20

  • District responded with no further improvements; revised proposal establishes $46,000 minimum for instructional, provides $875 for all other instructional, and places $850,000 into a single pot to divided between the instructional and support units

10/26/20

  • CCEA countered with a request for an added $82,000 to ensure Support would reach 50cents/hr; seeks to add language that would clarify improvments to be retroactive and further commitment to collaboratively revise the instructional placement schedule to ensure new hires with experience would not surpass current employees with equal years of  experience
  • District agreed to take the propsal to the Board for review

10/29/20

  • Board counter held firm at $850,000 to be divided between units, but added language on retroactive increases and placement schedule adjustment
