SAN MARCOS, Calif. (KGTV) -- San Marcos Unified School District teachers and parents flooded the school board meeting Tuesday night asking for the board to come to a contract agreement with their union.

The meeting was standing room only. Union officials say they've been without a contract since last June and that they've tried to negotiate with the district.

They're fighting for higher pay and smaller class sizes and getting all of these things in writing.

There was no item on the agenda at Tuesday's meeting but the superintendent did address the teachers and parents directly during a presentation. Dr. Garcia told the crowd she hears them and appreciates them being present at the meeting but told them the issue with the union's request is a lack of adequate funding at the state level.

The union and the district will be back at the bargaining table Tuesday, April 23rd.
