LBUSD, TALB Still Negotiating

Bargaining teams for the Long Beach Unified School District and the Teachers Association of Long Beach have held several negotiation sessions in the past month regarding the Opening of Schools Memorandum of Understanding.

The school district has developed instructional models that meet state requirements for instructional minutes and Senate Bill 98, which requires daily, live instruction. In an era of declining enrollment and budget uncertainty, these instructional models also meet the needs of students and parents and keep them in our district, while considering the needs of our teachers and staff. The school district’s instructional models also reflect a commitment to excellence, equity, and serving the most vulnerable students. 

Prior to the July 2 start of negotiations, the school district reviewed survey data and convened advisory committees that included representation from TALB, CSEA, other employees, students and parents. The most recent negotiation session was today.

The bargaining teams have spent considerable time discussing instructional models and safety precautions for teachers. To view the instructional models please see the links for elementarymiddle and high schools. These instructional models provide a framework for teachers to use in delivering a high quality learning experience that sets high expectations and is consistent across schools. This consistency is one of the hallmarks of the school district.

Bargaining teams are scheduling additional sessions to work toward an agreement. In the meantime, five days of paid professional development are being planned to include instruction on the new learning management system, synchronous and asynchronous pedagogy, and addressing students’ social emotional needs upon return to school. The school district will continue to provide updates on future negotiation sessions.
