After 10 months of labor negotiations, San Diego Unified School District and its teachers union declared an impasse.
In a statement, Superintendent Cindy Martin said they have “reached tentative agreements on nearly all issues including adding more counselors, nurses and special education support; increasing time for teacher preparation; maintaining benefits; and supporting consistent Visiting Teacher coverage. There are still a few areas where we have been unable to reach agreement.”
Lower class size and pay are the two sticking points — two of the most expensive issues.
The district can’t afford to pay teachers what they are asking for, Martin said.
“It does come down to money when you’re at the very end of the negotiations,” Martin said. ”We have mutually declared an impasse, which is simply another step in the bargaining process.“
