Under the new agreement, teachers will have 11 inservice days instead of the scheduled 14.

With the new calendar, teachers will begin their school year on Aug. 22, not Aug. 21. (Students begin Aug. 27.)

Teachers will not have to report to school on Presidents' Day, Feb. 18, as they would have before their new agreement.

O'Toole said many families make plans as soon as the school calendar is released, so he didn't make any changes to the calendar that would affect students.
