When they meet tonight in Fairfield, Travis Unified leaders face a busy and wide-ranging agenda.
The five-member governing board is expected to sign off on a three-year wage and benefit agreement with unions representing teachers and classified, or school support, employees.
Trustees also will hold a public hearing about the district’s 2015-16 preliminary budget; consider a proposed new bus fee schedule; and hold a public hearing about the district Local Control Accountability Plan, or LCAP.
Teachers and classified employees will receive a 3-percent raise, effective July 1, for the 2015-16 year, and 1.5 percent for the 2016-17 year. The agreements also call for employee longevity increases and increased district contributions for medical premiums.
The new medical benefit cap for members of the Travis Unified Teachers Association and members of Chapter 454 of the California School Employees Association will be $475 per month, or $5,700 annually, according to agenda information.
