United Teachers of Wichita Vote to Shorten School Year
United Teachers of Wichita has voted in favor of shortening the overall school year and lengthening each school day in response to state budget cuts. The alternative option that the union is trying to avoid is the elimination of some librarian, data leader, and custodial positions. The changes to the school year are pending approval from the district school board.
