Monica Brown, Green Valley Middle School, Fairfield
Parents and other community members, are you aware that the five furlough days that the classified staff took to save jobs have not been restored as student days?
This means that our students will have five fewer school days. I have been told that parents do not want these days restored, so families can go on vacation. Community members, this means that, as a teacher, I have five fewer days to get your child ready for the state test. High school teachers have five fewer days to get students ready for AP tests and SATs, for example.
