Our district union has voted to accept a deal to accept five furlough days this year and seven furlough days the next academic year in exchange for fewer job cuts. So that means the school year will end one week earlier this year. The school board still has to approve the deal.
I’m not surprised that most teachers in our district voted to accept the deal. I’m tired and want the year to be over. A friend told me that I’m starting to think like a teacher now.
