Districts are allowed to shorten year to ease financial woes
From The Salt Lake Tribune: Utah school districts again have been given permission to slash up to five school days next year to cope with financial strain, the state Board of Education has decided. This year, the state board allowed districts to cut up to five instructional days to deal with budget cuts. Five charter schools and eight school districts -- Granite, Murray, Duchesne, Garfield, Grand, Juab, Millard and San Juan -- cut some or all of those days. The Utah School Superintendents Association asked the board to allow districts the option again for next school year.
