Superintendent's Message


Dear TUSD Staff & Community,

In light of our teacher association’s recent rejection of the Tentative Agreement agreed to by the District and Association’s respective negotiating teams on May 7, 2018, for contract negotiations for 2017-20, I thought it important to take this opportunity to reiterate TUSD’s primary goals and interests:

  • Safe and secure learning environments for students and staff;
  • Access and opportunity for all students, staff, and parents;
  • Equity in compensation for all staff that includes salary and health benefits;
  • Fiscal responsibility to meet current and future needs; and
  • Fidelity to TUSD’s commitment to our community’s expectations for Measures N & O.

Although we respect the work of both parties during their 11 negotiation sessions, it is disappointing that a tentative agreement was not supported in the same manner as our other bargaining groups. This agreement included an ongoing 2% salary increase—which exceeds the statutory cost of living adjustment (COLA) of 1.56%—and a health benefit cap increase of $1,205, bringing the total annual cap to $9,329. Nonetheless, we remain committed to working through the process for resolution in an effort to continue attracting and retaining the very best for our students.


Dana Salles Trevethan,
