    The Del Norte County Unified School District and Del Norte County Office of Education have reached a tentative agreement with the local California School Employees Association (CSEA). Upon completion of the CSEA 610 process, which is the process for approval by both local members and the state CSEA office, classified staff will receive a 3% increase retroactive to July 1, 2019, as well as a $100.00 increase on the health and welfare bringing the annual District contribution for classified employees to $9,600.00.

    The Board also recognizes that we are in unprecedented times and that the classified staff is on the frontlines of keeping our schools safe and clean, our students fed, our technology viable, and our daily operations functioning. While there will be a need to address ongoing costs in future budgets in light of our current economic situation, this year, in consideration of the extraordinary services rendered, the Board has also authorized a one time 0.5% pay supplement for all CSEA members.
