Current Issues



The following are just a few current issues the MUTA leadership has been working on:






On Friday, March 13th, 2020 the Madera Unified Board of Trustees announced the closing all schools in Madera Unified School District through Monday, April 13th.  This decision has generated many questions for our members. It is our hope that this document will help answer as many questions as possible. We appreciate you understanding that this is an evolving unprecedented situation and we might not have all the answers for you now. We will continue to update information as it becomes available.

  • Classroom teachers have a new 4 rating  evaluation. Please review rhe rubric.

Many other positions (such as coulselors)  have a new evaluation tool as well.




Student Discipline


  • MUTA leadership supports the right to have a safe classroom environment which is free of abusive and disruptive student behaviors. Suspension by teacher (Ed Code 48910)- A teacher may suspend a pupil from his/her class or class period, for any act specified in (Ed Code 48900) for the day of the suspension and the day following. The suspension must be immediately reported to the principal and the student sent to the principal for further action.  The teacher must also request a parent/teacher conference as soon as possible. The pupil shall not be returned to the class from which the pupil was suspended during the period of the suspension without the concurrence of the teacher and the principal.  Your administration does not have the right to tell you that you cannot suspend the pupil. 







  • Your district issued laptop and all the information stored on it can be viewed by MUSD. When you “surf the net” on your district laptop at home and then bring that laptop to work- your information is stored on MUSD servers. MUSD has the right to monitor everything you do on your work computer — and how you communicate on it. As you know, certain websites are filtered out and your other web activity can be seen as well.  Your association does not condone the misuse of district issued laptops. You are expected to use a district laptop for educational purposes that pertain to your employment with MUSD.
