Glendale Unified announced Friday that there could be no furlough days taken by employees during the current school year after district officials came to a tentative agreement with the Glendale Teachers Assn. on Aug. 22.
There were originally five furlough days on the books to save the district $3 million.
But with an increase in state funding to Glendale Unified this year, one of those furlough days slated for 2013-14 has been rescinded.
The remaining four furlough days still remain on the books, but officials are planning to rescind one per year beginning 2015-16. Across the district, one furlough day taken by Glendale Unified employees would save the district $650,000.
“We’re very excited,” said Maria Gandera, assistant supt. of human resources for Glendale Unified. “Both GTA and the district are very excited about this news.”
The item will also move to the Glendale school board for their approval during an upcoming meeting.
