Rochester superintendent and some aides to take furloughs

Rochester schools Superintendent Romain Dallemand will take 10 days of unpaid furlough this school year, effectively cutting his salary by about $7,000.
Seven other school administators will take similar action.

Rochester schools Superintendent Romain Dallemand will take 10 days of unpaid furlough this school year, effectively cutting his salary by about $7,000.

Seven other school administators will take similar action. The district will save about $25,000 with the furloughs, reports the Rochester Post-Bulletin.

Could this be a foreboding for other district employees? The paper says a district budget reduction committee “has discussed the possibility of districtwide salary freezes and furloughs next year, but such a move would require negotiations with employee bargaining units.”
