The Ripon Unified School District will have a 183-day work schedule for teachers during the 2013-14 school year.

Of that, 177 days will go towards classroom instruction for students.

That’s according to the agreement involving the Ripon Unified School District and the Ripon Unified District Teachers Association.

Teachers, under the pact approved by school board at the June 24 special session, will get one furlough day (May 30, 2014) along with the six staff development days.

As for the upcoming year’s stipend schedule, the district can now add one cross county assistant, one junior varsity golf coach, and five seventh- and eighth- grade soccer coaches.

Each school site will be capped at no more than two Academic Decathlon advisors – or 10 district-wise – while both sides agreed on adding to the disciplinary procedures for employees in Article XXI of the Government Code. Part of this area includes grounds for disciplinary consideration, ranging from immoral or unprofessional conduct, to dishonesty, incompetency and evident of unfitness for service, to name a few.

RUSD and RUDTA, in addition, agreed to return to the table in August to discuss the health benefit caps as well as any impact caused by the Local Control Funding Formula – tied to education funding in Gov. Jerry Brown’s recently approved state budget – Revenue Limit changes, and / or any unforeseen fiscal circumstances.
