Here’s something you don’t see often in these cash-strapped times: Lincoln Unified has added two days to the current school year’s calendar. Thanks to the voters who approved Gov. Jerry Brown’s Proposition 30 education tax increase last week, Lincoln students now have a 177-day instructional calendar.
