LANCASTER — Antelope Valley Union High School District classified employees and unrepresented confidential and classified management employees will get a 3.5% ongoing salary increase and a 5% one-time bonus of employees’ 2020-21 annual salary under a tentative agreement unanimously approved by the Board at the Sept. 8 meeting.

The cost of the agreements is an estimated $5.4 million.

The pay increases are similar to the increases teachers and unrepresented certificated management received last month as approved by the Board.

Karen White, president of California School Employees Association Chapter 612, which represents the District’s classified employees, said chapter members ratified the tentative agreement on Aug. 17.

“In approving it tonight, you provide the ability for closure for our negotiations for 2020-21,” White said.

The schools should get "wage freeze" until test scores improve. Schools want more...? then provide more.
