River Valley Charter teachers ratify 1st contract



Negotiators Michael Elmann, Giavanna Neff, and Diane Huff share their first contract

River Valley Charter Teachers Association (RVCTA), one of Californa Teachers Association’s (CTA’s) newest affiliates, signed their first-ever contract with Lakeside Unified School District that includes due process procedures for members before termination and binding arbitration to encourage fair resolution of charter educators’ issues. To ensure quality teachers remain rather than seeking better pay elsewhere, their negotiating team also bargained an 8% raise that brings their salary much closer to nearby districts.


Along with CTA and the National Education Association, River Valley Charter is also affiliated the local Lakeside Teachers Association and received official Public Employment Relations Board recognition in 2016.
