Fellow Members,

Welcome back to a new school year.  I trust everyone had a restful and enjoyable vacation (for those who did have the opportunity to take one).

Your negotiations team worked very hard this past school year to negotiate a salary increase but we’re not finish yet.  We have much work ahead of us.  We will begin working on our new contract and we need your help.  We are going to send out surveys on health insurance, salary and other areas you are interested in seeing a change.  We want and need your opinion so we need everyone to complete the survey and return it.  We will let you know when and how the survey will be distributed.  We will discuss this at our site rep and chapter meetings.

I’m sure by now you heard of the LCFF and LCAP.  The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is the new school funding calculation in California.  The implementation of the LCFF is to give Local Education Agencies (LEAs), such as school districts, county offices of education, and their stakeholders more control over how to spend state funds to effectively deliver education programs. As part of the LCFF, LEAs must develop a Local Control Accountability Plan to set goals in eight priority areas specified by the state. Districts are required to consult with stakeholders, including classified school employees and their unions, to develop their LCAP goals. 

Our Association President Michael Bilbrey stated, “Schools will have more money, so it’s very important that classified employees get involved in that process.”  If you have children attending our schools we urge you to participate as a parent as well as a CSEA member.  We in Pomona have begun working on our goals.  The District has hired custodians and health clerks.  We will continue to work collaboratively to achieve our goal… to educate our students, the leaders of tomorrow!

We suffered cuts that resulted in lost jobs, furlough days and salary/hour reductions which definitely had an impact on our students. We need to work together to bring our students back to Pomona.  We are classified employees who are the educational support professionals and we do care! It’s time fellow members to get involve. Let our voice be heard!

Yours in Solidarity and Unity,
Mariana

Not Just Teachers: Supporting Students’ Success
Association President Michael Bilbrey for the U.S. Dept of Education Blog:
As summer ends and the school year begins, we often think about teachers and students heading back to school. While teachers prepare lessons and students learn new concepts we can’t forget the service employees who provide support that enable the schools to run efficiently.
