Teachers and staff from the Rancho Santa Fe Faculty Association sent their initial collective bargaining agreement to the RSF School District at the February meeting.
Negotiations will focus largely on salaries and benefits. The RSF Review reports:
"In June 2015, the school board approved a retroactive 3 percent off-schedule raise for the 2014-15 school year and a 3 percent on-schedule salary increase for 2015-16."
"Starting in 1996-97, Rancho Santa Fe teachers consistently received a bump in salary of about 3.5 percent a year, going up to 4.5 percent in 2007-08. There had not been an increase since the 2008-09 school year, although teachers have received off-salary increases, which are like end-of-the-year bonuses."
