TVUSD Reinstates 4 Student Days to School Year

However, the district said the board encouraged it to retain the original graduation dates of May 30 and 31 for high schools.

The Temecula Valley Unified School District published a message Thursday to parents regarding its reinstatement of four student days to this school year.

The statement comes after the school board on Tuesday approved an agreement to reinstate the four student days and two staff development days.  The days were originally designated as Work Year Reduction (furlough) days per an agreement with the Temecula Valley Educators Association, the district said.

The following days were reinstated, according to the district.

Monday, June 3 – student day (formerly a Work Year Reduction Day)

Tuesday, June 4 – student day (formerly a Work Year Reduction Day)

Wednesday, June 5 – Modif ed Day (formerly a Work Year Reduction Day)

Thursday, June 6 – Modifed Day (formerly a Work Year Reduction Day)

Friday, June 7 - Non-Student Day - Staff Development

Monday, June 10 - Non Student Day - Staff Development

"We realize that changing the last day of school at this time is an inconvenience for families. For those of you who have vacations planned for the first week of June, and cannot change them, we encourage you to speak with your child’s teacher(s) and/or principal. Our teachers and principals will do their best to work with families who have been caught in this predicament. We realize that accommodating this calendar change will require finagling for some. However, for the district as a whole, adding school days to the school year is in the best interest of students. Our students need as much instructional time as we can provide for them."

However, the district said the board encouraged it to retain the original graduation dates of May 30 and 31 for high schools. Therefore, the reinstatement of school days is effective for students in grades kindergartern through 11th, while seniors will graduate on May 30 or 31—depending on school’s graduation date—according to the statement.

Nice to have the additional school days for students, but odd to see the word "finagling" in the announcement.
