I am outraged. The teachers, classified and management of the Travis Unified School District have taken a 4 percent cut in pay by taking eight additional furlough days this school year. This is an average cut of $235 per month for the teachers.
Yet, at the last school board meeting, the TUSD Board was presented with a proposed $24 per month cut to their stipend to show solidarity with their employees. This was voted down by all but one school board member (Gary Craig) with the claim that our school board members couldn’t afford this cut.
