CLINTON — A tight budget has helped give students in the Clinton Public School District a longer summer break.
The school board amended the school calendar for the 2010-2011 year, shifting dates for registration and the start of classes. The board also eliminated two off days during the school year.
Instead of returning Aug. 3, teachers go back to campus Aug. 9, and students return Aug. 12.
Assistant Superintendent Tim Martin said the calendar changes were necessary after the district decided to reduce teacher contract days and furlough all employees for three days. Clinton is among several districts furloughing employees because of state budget cuts.
