Year Agreement Furlough Days

2010-2011                        2                                         0 (zero)

2011-2012                        3                                         0 (zero)

2012-2013                        4 5 (2 instructional, 2 non-

instructional + 1 instructional

11-12 for total 3 instructional)

Total Days                         9                                         5

As referenced herein, “furlough clays” are days that would normally be paid as part of a unit members assignment/basis but, as furlough days, will become unpaid days. Such days will reduce annual salary proportionately but shall not affect current regular salary schedules or step/column advancement. Service for assigned days, less any furlough days shall constitute a full year of service for STRS service credit; however, salaries shall be reduced to reflect the furlough days.

If the actual funded base revenue limit (BRL) for the 2012~2013 school remains the same or increases relative to the 2011-12 BRL, the parties  return to the table with the intention of rescinding the deferred furlough day from 2011-12. The parties shall open wages and work year calendar no later than November 30, 2012, to negotiate the 2012-13 school year furlough days agreed to in the August 24, 2010 agreement independent of any other on­going negotiations.

The signatures below reflect tentative agreement subject to ratification and approval by GTA members and the Board of Education, respectively.
