Superintendent's Update, May 18, 2018

No schools will close for coming school year

At Tuesday’s School Board meeting, all Board members agreed that, due to an improved budget outlook, there is no longer any need to consider closing any schools this year.  So the Board voted to “table” the matter of accepting the recommendation of the Surplus Property Committee to list the Sierra High/Adult School campus and Magnolia and Mountain View elementary schools as properties that could be considered “surplus.”  Board President Helen Jaramillo explained that even if the Board did eventually accept the committee’s report, the School Board is under no obligation to act on it.

Tentative contract agreements reached with employee groups

I am pleased to report that AUSD has reached tentative agreements with Azusa Educators Association (AEA) and Classified School Employees Association (CSEA) on new two-year contracts.  To take effect, the agreements must be ratified by AEA and CSEA members and approved by the School Board.  A new contract with Azusa Federation of Adult Educators (AFAE) has already been approved.

It’s important that all our employees feel valued, and that the pay and benefits we offer remain competitive with similar school districts.  These agreements should help in both ways while preserving a healthy budget reserve.

More retirements allow more layoffs to be cancelled

Several more employee retirements have created space for several other employees who were facing layoff to keep their jobs.  This is great news!

Elementary schools getting new playground equipment this summer

Recently, you may have noticed workers surveying at elementary schools.  They are preparing to install new, modern playground equipment at all elementary schools this summer. 

Sincerely,

Linda Kaminski, Ed.D.
