Parties will bargain at 3:30 p.m. based on settlement framework crafted last night
LA HABRA â€“ Operating in good faith that both sides will keep their bargaining commitments, the La Habra Education Association has notified La Habra City School District Superintendent Susan Belenardo that the cityâ€™s teachers will return to their classrooms today, Tuesday, December 14, 2010.
After a lengthy series of back and forth discussions Monday evening lasting until almost midnight, LHEA received a framework for a settlement from the California School Services Administration and California Teachers Association financial analysts that the union believes could lead to a settlement today. Bargaining between the district and the union will resume Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. in an effort to reach an agreement.
â€œWe promised teachers and the community that we would not keep teachers out of their classrooms any longer than was necessary,â€ said LHEA President Danette Brown. â€œWe are honoring our word in the good faith that the district will reciprocate and reach a contract settlement with us today, based on the framework crafted last night.â€
