The $11 million in givebacks by Brentwood teachers comes as school districts across Long Island are to release budget proposals today.

The concessions by the 1,400-member Brentwood Teachers Association will save more than 200 jobs and preserve students services like music classes and sports, Newsday reported.

Brentwood is the fifth teacher union on Long Island to agree to contract concessions. The five unions represent about 3,300 teachers. Long Island has more than 40,000 teachers.
