Dear Hillcrest Families
Negotiations between OUSD and the teacher's union (OEA) is at an impasse. "Fact Finding" documents have been submitted to a panel for review. In the next few weeks, the "Fact Finding" panel will make non-binding recommendations to OUSD and OEA. If, at that time, an agreement on a fair contract that addresses class size, increased support staff, and appropriate compensation to improve teacher retention, can not be reached, there is a possibility of a teacher strike.
Thornhill Elementary teachers are providing an information meeting for parents about the impasse and how families can support teachers in their fight to improve public education for all of OUSD's children. They have graciously invited the Hillcrest staff and community to the meeting. The Hillcrest teachers encourage families to attend. Thank you!
WHEN: Tuesday, Jan. 29th, at 3:15 and again at 5:30
