My school has 180 for students, and about 188 for teachers. My new school has 180 for students, and 193 for new teachers

180 for students - 180 for teachers - yeah, it sucks! If California does not vote for the tax in November (which won't pass), the budget passed yesterday has language in it which will allow school districts to drop up to 15 days from the school year, so who knows what next year will be. My school year ended yesterday and they haven't given us our contracts for next year yet because they are waiting for state news. There is a rumor they will only be offering us contracts until January until after the election in Novemeber.

The teachers work 187 days a year. Students attend by hours, not days. For years, our students have attended slightly longer school days, so there are three days that we can use during snow when the back roads are too bad for busses, but the other roads are clear or easily passable for cars.

180 days for students minus five furlough days. We go back one day before kids and leave when they do on the last day of school. Oh, and that one day is about 60% meetings/trainings.

186 for teachers and 173 for kids (but this number changes each year along with snow days that might happen.)

180 students and 184 teachers We also have waiver days for students, so it seems as if we work several more days than students attend.

186 for teachers, 183 for students. I'm jealous of those of you who have 10 or more teacher-only days!

Ours too. We had tons of non-student days but they were almost all inservice/pd days. We only had 2 actual teacher work days throughout the year.

Of our non-student days, only 2 have been teacher work days (each about a week before report cards are due).

In the UK we have 195 days. 190 with kids and 5 training days. However this may well change as this Government is intent on removing many of the terms and conditions of our contracts.

182 student/191 teacher. PA only requires 180 for students so the first two snow days don't have to be made up by the students but all snow days tack on an extra teacher day at the end of the year so that no matter what we work our 191 days. I'm amazed some of you have 16-20 more days than your students, I thought our 9 was on the high side.

We start work and must be present at school on the first weekday in September and must go through the last weekday in June (though once the school year begins we don't have to go in on student vacation days.) Students start later and end earlier. Our contract officially states that we have only one month of vacation, which is August, so in July we are technically "at the disposition of the Administration" (meaning State Ed authorities, not necessarily principals) so we could be required to do trainings or correct exams or anything else throughout all of July with no extra pay. So far this hasn't happened yet, but there are rumors that it may be on the horizon.
