PRESS RELEASE: Fewer Instructional Days due to Budget Cuts
June 4, 2010 (San Francisco) – The San Francisco Board of Education has approved an instructional calendar for its 2010-11 school year, which includes four furlough days agreed upon between SFUSD and the United Educators of San Francisco (UESF).
The furlough days are part of the District’s cost-cutting measures as it faces a $113 million shortage of funds from the state of California over the next two years. The district estimates the furloughs, in which schools, child development centers and district offices will be closed, will save approximately $9.2 million.
The school year begins Monday, August 16, 2010. In addition to other regularly-scheduled holidays, schools will be closed for furlough days on:
· Monday, November 1, 2010
· Friday, February 4, 2011
· Friday, March 25, 2011
· Monday, April 25, 2011
