PERB Rules for OEA!

On March 15th, the PERB legal hearing officer, Eric Cu, ruled that Orcutt Academy teachers should be part of OEA.  In a 30 page ruling, Cu repeatedly cited case law to back up his opinion.  Superintendent Robert Bush has stated that the Board will appeal the ruling within the 20 day legal limit.  The cost of the district's legal fees hasn't been disclosed but it is safe to assume it will be in excess of $10,000.  When that exact figure is known it will be posted here for all to see.
