No Furloughs Next Year
Wednesday, 19 March 2014

March 18--  For the first time in at least seven years, public school employees in Montgomery County will not lose pay due to furloughs, according to county School Superintendent Randy Rodgers.

The county school board approved next year's school calendar at its March meeting Monday night.  The first day of school will be Friday, August 8th.  The school term will include 180 days for students and 190 days for faculty and staff.

After an executive session, the board renewed the contracts for school principals and system-level staff members including Brittany Deen at Montgomery County Elementary, Juanita Boatwright at the middle school, Pamela Richards at the high school, Carol Morris at Montgomery Academy, and staff members Karon Poole, Audrey Walters and Luverne Mobley.

It also okayed spending up to $5,000 for an environmental study of potential sites for future school system facilities.
