YUBA CITY (CBS13) — Teachers in Yuba City will be holding a meeting after the sixth day of a strike where parents will also get the chance to meet face-to-face with school board members.
City officials have offered to pay a retired judge to serve as a mediator, but the school board says the teachers union rejected that proposal.
While the school district normally serves nearly 13,000 students, only 7,000 went to school on Wednesday. That’s up from the first day of the strike when attendance fell below 50 percent.
Student attendance is a critical factor in some sources of school district funding.
