Budget and Negotiations #7 | Employee Enhancements
Posted 3/3/20

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) and the San Ramon Valley Education Association (SRVEA), continue to work towards settlement in this year’s negotiations. As we return to the negotiating table tomorrow in hopes of a settlement, we think it is important to reflect on the enhancements that we have been able to achieve in partnership with our certificated bargaining unit. 


The SRVUSD remains a great place to teach and work. With a coveted employee total compensation package and an ongoing agreement to spend down District reserves on students and employees, the SRVUSD lands in the top tier of teacher compensation in the Bay Area.


Compensation Facts:

  • As part of the current negotiations, we have proposed a 2.56% raise for our certificated employees for 2019-20, which costs $4.1million. 

  • Including this year’s offer of 2.56%, SRVUSD has offered a cumulative increase of 20.74% in ongoing salary adjustments since 2014, well above the state average of 16.44% over the same period.

  • The District has also provided an additional 12.38% in one-time/off-schedule payments since 2014. 

  • In addition, certificated employees receive step and column raises for the first 21 years of service in SRVUSD, increasing each employee’s salary annually, regardless of negotiated raises.   

  • SRVUSD fully covers the cost of Kaiser health benefits for all full-time employees (FTE) up to family-level coverage at an average yearly approximate cost per FTE of $11,000.00 

  • With salary and benefits combined, the total compensation average in 2019-20 for teachers is $118,423

  • SRVUSD ranks #2 in total compensation for comparable districts in the region, starting with a $50,914 salary ($75,422 total compensation) up to $103,574 salary ($129,593 total compensation).

  • This year, SRVUSD will invest over $300 million of our $360 million budget in our valued educators and staff who support our students, including over $50 million in pension costs and over $40 million in health and welfare benefits.


Our teachers deserve the best compensation that we can responsibly afford to give them. We look forward to a positive outcome when we return to the table tomorrow.
