Ramona school district, teachers union expect fact-finding report Monday

School board to set date for release to public

Friday, April 5—A three-member fact-finding panel is expected to submit its findings and recommendations on Monday, April 8, Ramona Unified Superintendent Robert Graeff said today. The report will detail the issues that have thus far hindered a contract settlement between the Ramona Unified School District and Ramona Teachers Association, he said.

The report, submitted to both parties, outlines the panel’s observations and conclusions, drawn from two days of presentations by the district and RTA on Feb. 27-28. While not binding, its recommendations are intended to help move the parties closer to a settlement after 18 months of negotiations and mediation sessions.

District’ trustees will have 10 days following the release to make the report’s findings public, said Graeff, noting that the specific date will be announced shortly.

Meanwhile, Graeff said district schools will continue to operate fully under normal conditions.

“We also continue to be hopeful that we can reach a settlement with the union that is both fair to our teachers and financially responsible to the district and our taxpayers,” Graeff said.

    In regards to Dr. G.'s final quote, if the district wanted to be financially responsible to the taxpayers, the board would have never voted to build the 2 new schools without a plan put in place to pay for them. They screwed their employees and the community. That board and ALT team included Bob Stoody and Bob Graeff.

      Tim,
      While you are correct that Bob Stoody was on the board that voted to borrow the money, it should be noted that Stoody voted against borrowing the money.
