Calistoga Associated Teachers represents K-12 teachers at Calistoga Joint Unified School District. Our #1 goal is to provide quality education to the children of the Calistoga community.

In view of this goal, we are currently advocating not for increased pay or higher salaries, but for better conditions and environment that will directly benefit your child’s education.

Currently, our major goals are:

  1. That health insurance costs are covered for teachers, so that teachers can continue to have the energy, health, and vigor it takes to provide your children the stimulating education they deserve.

  2. Class-size reduction and/or additional preparation/planning/assessment time to ensure quality education for students.

Meanwhile, CJUSD has indicated no desire to provide any of the above. Instead of improving educational conditions for children, the District is currently proposing a salary raise.
