LA administrators approve shortened school year

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Administrators have overwhelming approved an agreement with the Los Angeles Unified School District that would shorten the school year this year and next.

Associated Administrators of Los Angeles released the results Tuesday.

The AALA says administrators voted to shave five days off the 2009-2010 school year, resulting in five unpaid furlough days for their members, and another seven furlough days for the 2010-2011 school year. Administrators say the total 12-day savings to LAUSD
totals $8.6 million.

AALA president Judith Perez told the Los Angeles Times
negotiations with the district also resulted in the preservation of eight small elementary schools that would have closed.

The AALA says more than 90 percent of the 2,300-member union voted to approve the furlough day agreement.
