Action alert!

VTA has done an analysis of the District LCAP draft #1 and compared elements of the plan to trends in high priority areas from our member survey. We found the plan does little or nothing to address:
  • Competitive Salaries
  • More Planning Time
  • Teacher-Driven Professional Development
The LCAP plan includes many new programs to be implemented without thought to additional planning time needed for members to implement these new programs. It also includes a lot of professional development without consulting members on what professional development they believe they need.
There is no mention of competitive salaries in the document we can find. Starting pay in Vacaville for the fall will be $41,218. Starting pay in Fairfield is about $47,000 and starting pay in Napa is about $49,000.

VTA members, we need you to give feedback on these issues ASAP!
