Earlier this afternoon, the Liberty County school system announced employees are being asked to take three furlough days during the upcoming the fall semester.
“As of yesterday, the board officially voted and we’re going to take three furlough days on Sept. 8, the day after Labor Day, making it a four-day weekend,” said Superintendent Dr. Judy Scherer. “And then the other two on Oct. 5, 6. That’s a Monday and Tuesday making another four day weekend.”
Scherer said the board chose the October dates to coincide with the current deployment schedule, offering families more time together before they go overseas.
So as not to take away from student time, the board decided to lengthen school days for the first semester.
