Teachers in the Mount Diablo Unified School District began voting this morning on a contract proposal that would shorten the school year by three days because it includes three furlough days.

The contract is meant to help the district balance its budget and avoid more job cuts. The voting runs through tomorrow and results are expected by the end of the week.
