The Carpinteria Association of United School Employees (CAUSE), led by CAUSE President Jay Hotchner, has accepted and signed the Carpinteria Unified School District 2019-20 contract proposal. “We are pleased to have resolved and closed the 2019-20 collective bargaining cycle,” Hotchner wrote. He urged the district “to develop its three-year budget with confirmed data (versus predicting upon uncertainties currently baked into the district’s budget projections).” 

Additionally, Hotchner expressed his hope on behalf of the union that “the district recognizes the value of our efforts and flexibility during this Covid-19 pandemic,” stating that working together, CUSD and CAUSE “can keep this district robust until we have more certainty about what Covid-19 closures and reopenings mean to the district and the community.” Hotchner also  stated that the union looks forward to a district announcement of the formation of a reopening committee that includes “the primary stakeholder groups in order to best inform these important decisions.”
