DAVIS SCHOOLS PONDER DAY TO MAKE UP FOR WALKOUT

SHARE DAVIS SCHOOLS PONDER DAY TO MAKE UP FOR WALKOUT

Davis school officials have yet to decide when schoolchildren will make up school missed during the recent teacher walkout.

Teachers at 50 Davis schools walked out on Sept. 22, and then all schools in the state joined Davis teachers in a walkout on Sept. 25.Bonnie Durrance-Doyle, district spokeswoman, said that the school district will receive state funding for schools closed on Sept. 22. That day will not have to be made up by students. One school day in place of Sept. 25, however, will have to be made up.

Superintendent Richard Kendell told the school board Tuesday night that the district will continue to speak with the Davis Education Association about when a makeup day will be scheduled. Under policy issued by State Superintendent James R. Moss, the makeup day could occur on a career-ladder day.

Some other districts have decided to wait until 1990 to make up the lost day of school.

Doyle said that while the district will receive funds for Sept. 22, the district had losses associated with school lunches, bus driver salaries and other expenses. The district is still tallying the losses.
