Schools often have shortened days for parent conferences and teacher planning. Under state law, a school day must be at least 180 minutes. An internal audit by the Chino Valley Unified School District discovered 34 days had been 175 minutes at Doris Dickson Elementary and 170 at Rolling Ridge Elementary, the Times says.
That means an abbreviated summer for the fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders at those schools so the district doesn't lose $7 million in state funds.
