The Rocklin Unified School District and its teachers association have declared an impasse on contract negotiations that began last May. The last time an impasse hit Rocklin Unified was the 2014-15 school year. Cindy Menzel, a spokeswoman for the California Teachers Association, told the Roseville Press Tribune that parties can declare impasse whenever they decide it’s impossible to move forward with negotiations on their own, but Rocklin’s jointly declared impasse is something that doesn’t come around often.

Teachers are asking for more notification when a transfer opportunity opens up within the district. As well as contract changes to special education training, curriculum, caseloads and policy changes to student and teacher mental health care access. The district and RTPA are in the process of establishing dates to meet with the state negotiator, likely sometime this spring. If negotiations still cannot be reached, the process moves to a fact-finding session, and If that doesn’t work, teachers can strike or the district can either force the contract.
