District Announcements

  • A MESSAGE FROM DR. ANDREWS & THE CDTA

     

    June 2, 2019

    Dear Cambrian School District Families, Staff, and Friends:

    In a continued effort to keep our community apprised of how we are working together through contract negotiations, we want to take the time to share the results of the collaborative work that transpired between the Cambrian District Teachers Association (CDTA) and the District on Friday, May 31st.

    We had a full day of successful negotiations. The teams continued to review and discuss the district’s finances and California’s May budget revise. Due to our ongoing efforts, many options were presented and we communicated positively, professionally and effectively. The teams discussed the following articles: Benefits and Added Compensation, Hours and Length of Work Year Instructional Duties, Staffing Ratio and Class Size, and Evaluation. As a result, we are pleased to announce that CDTA and the District were able to come to a tentative agreement honoring the excellent work of all our teachers.

    Over the next week, the CDTA bargaining team will share specific details with CDTA members and they will vote on the tentative agreement. If the vote passes, then on June 20th Governing Board Meeting the agreement will be brought to the Governing School Board for ratification. Once the Board votes and ratifies, we will follow up with the details of the new contract language. We are proud of what we have been able to accomplish together for our district, our teachers, and most importantly, our students.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Carrie Andrews

    Dear Cambrian School District Community, Faculty, Family, and Friends;

     

    In an effort to keep you informed of important district matters, I wanted to take this moment to update you on our current negotiations with the Cambrian District Teachers Association (CDTA).

     

    Like every single school district in California, and as a former teacher, I firmly believe in the idea of paying our teachers more than what they are currently being paid.

     

    There is no denying that their passion, commitment, and dedication are a key reason why our district has been able to establish itself as one of the top districts in the region.

     

    However, as much as we would like to provide our teachers every dollar that they deserve, our fiscal reality is one that does not allow us the opportunity to do so.

     

    Like you, we are bound by a budget, and with that budget, we work diligently to provide our students with a strong classroom experience that is further supported by quality programs.

     

    As our negotiations proceed with CDTA, you have my commitment that we will do everything we can to reach an agreement that financially rewards our teachers without jeopardizing the future of our district, and the amazing student experience we have built to date.

     

    As the negotiations continue, I will keep you updated, as I believe it is critical that you are aware of how we invest your tax dollars.

     

    Sincerely,

     Supt. Signature

    Dr. Carrie Andrews
    Superintendent

    Dear Cambrian School District Community, Faculty, Families, and Friends:

     

    Let me begin by thanking you for taking the time to contact me with words of encouragement and offers to help. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Your kindness and generosity energize me as we navigate through the District’s current budget reality.

    As I stated in yesterday’s letter, the District’s current budget issues stem from the legislature and the Governor’s inability to fund public schools appropriately. The unfortunate result of this is the current statewide environment of teachers versus administrators. At Cambrian, we will not buy into that narrative, as we are a unified community and intend to maintain an environment where our teachers will always know that we value and respect them.

    In response to your question about how you can help, the best way to do so is to lend your voice to our struggle by calling the Governor and our legislators and letting them know that California schools need more funding. To assist you with your outreach, I have included the contact information of our legislators and the Governor:

    Governor Gavin Newsom
    (916) 445-2841

    State Senator Jim Beall
    (408) 558-1295

    Assembly Member Evan Low
    (408) 446-2810

    Thank you for your partnership.

     

    Sincerely,
