Re: New Calendar
Look at the calendar. Same number of days except for the kids that need remedial work. Seniors get out in May. Senior teachers would be done in May. the school year is longer but teachers aren't teaching during the breaks except for maybe department heads or teachers that will be paid for tutorials. They lengthened the year but not actual time in instruction for most students. I bet they are well within contract requirements. Just like teachers are paid for summer school those that teach during the intersessions will get paid. The good news is now some teachers will be able to take vacations off season instead of having to go during the busiest and hottest time of the year. Except for coaches and band directors who will get to work during that time and it will be covered by their "stipend".
They just backed into year round school without having to fight using the words all in the name of "safety".
