SFUSD teachers approve new contract
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Teachers in the San Francisco Unified School District have approved a new contract that includes more than two weeks of furlough days if voters reject tax hikes.
The deal is expected to be ratified by the San Francisco Board Of Education on Tuesday night.
It includes one-and-a-half furlough days over each of the next two school years. And under a provision in the contract, teachers could face 16-and-a-half furlough days if voters do not approve Proposition 30 -- the governor's tax plan.
Teachers will now take part in phone banks and community meetings in an effort to get the public's support for the tax increase.
