Teachers and parents to protest in San Bruno: Elementary school district teachers took five unpaid furlough days last year to help with finances
March 12, 2014, 05:00 AM By Angela Swartz Daily Journal

Teachers and parents in the San Bruno Park Elementary School District plan to pack the school board meeting Wednesday night to demand that the district restore five school days.

District teachers agreed last year to take five unpaid furlough days to help the district when finances were tight, but now San Bruno Education Association members and parents are demanding the school board restore student education days to the district calendar.

The district now has $5 million in reserves and restoring the five days would only cost $250,000, according to a press release from the association. It would also relieve a needless financial burden for educators, said Julia Maynard, president of the association and teacher in the district.

“With millions in reserves now, it’s time for the district and the school board to restore the five student education days so that our children’s school year is as long as the year in all neighboring districts, a full 180 days,” she said in a statement.

The item is currently under private session negotiations, so board members can’t discuss the specifics of these, said Trustee Henry Sanchez.

“I look forward to listening to their opinion,” he said.

Meanwhile, board President Patrick Flynn said it’s a little too late in his opinion for them to protest the item.

“It was on the agenda a couple months ago,” he said. “It’s not like as a board we can really do anything at least at this meeting; it’s not on the agenda at all. It may be in future agendas.”

The meeting takes place 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 12 at the former Crestmoor Elementary school site, 2322 Crestmoor Drive in San Bruno.
