SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Unified School District Board of Education voted 5-0 Tuesday to implement a four-year plan to shift its 60 or so year-round schools to traditional academic calendars.

San Diego Unified School District officials voted unanimously Tuesday night to do away with year round schedules at schools.

According to district documents, the plan involves changing 15 schools a year. Most of the affected campuses are at the elementary level, though a couple are middle schools, according to the SDUSD.

District staff has been studying the transition since last year. District trustees directed staff to give priority to campuses that serve military families, and those that feed into middle and high schools with traditional calendars.

The first 15 schools to be shifted, during the 2015-16 school year, will be Dewey, Ericson, Farb, Hancock, Hardy, Jerabek, Johnson, Mason, Miller, Porter, Sequoia, Tierrasanta, Valencia Park and Walker elementaries, and Knox Middle School.

    Teachers love those long 3 month vacations to go along with only a 7 month school schedule (Christmas and Easter vactions along with Thanksgiving week off blah blah blah) work only 6.5 hours a day then complain they only make $82,000 a year. Teacher is actually the wrong name for them….sorry it’s actually “paper pass outer, don’t bother me because I don’t have time for all 14 of you kids”
