Educating Today's Students To Succeed In Tomorrow's World

Unit/Hour Approval for Salary Schedule Advancement

The District’s collective bargaining agreement with YCTA states that prior approval will be granted for any course/training that provides a benefit to:
  • The unit member’s current assignment; or
  • The District’s educational program.
The District will continue to approve courses previously approved for salary schedule advancement.  Listed below are previously approved courses organized by college or provider.  This is an evolving list so check back when you need additional course ideas.  In addition, courses taken for the following reasons will likely be approved: 
    • post-graduate courses with significant live classroom instruction (attended either remotely or in person); 
    • courses which clear credentials;
    • add a new credential;
    • apply towards earning a Masters or Doctorate,
    • or support AVID implementation and development.
As always, you are encouraged to seek approval prior to registration.
If you don’t see the course you would like to take, don’t worry!  Unlisted courses will be assessed on a case-by-case basis in accordance with the collective bargaining agreement.
