The Los Angeles Unified School District and teachers' union have reached an agreement to have teachers take 10 unpaid days off in 2012-13, district officials announced late Friday.
The agreement still needs to be approved by the school board and United Teachers Los Angeles. A district spokesperson and union spokeswoman could not be reached for comment.
According to a district release, the agreement calls for a reduction of "five instructional days, in addition to teacher's [sic] taking one unpaid pupil free day and four other non-paid days."
The district is struggling to close a $390 million budget shortfall.
