(KSL News) One day soon Utah teachers could see the end to their three-month summer break.

Yesterday Governor Jon Huntsman approved a proposal that would have teachers teach for a full year instead of nine months.

He says using a trimester system will help alleviate Utah's teacher shortage. Huntsman says it will also give teachers longer contracts, and therefore higher pay.

The proposal would also help spread out the thin supply of science and math teachers and give students more flexibility in their schedules.
