Fifty-three percent of Nampa teachers volunteered to take up to four unpaid days next semester to help the school district dig out of a $4.3 million deficit, a district spokeswoman said.
Those furloughs, representing 1,407 unpaid days, were among the deficit-related developments presented to the Nampa School Board Wednesday night. All of the districts administrators volunteered to take four to six furlough days, and the board voted last week to require all classified staff to take furlough days. Estimates of how much the furloughs will save the district were not available.
Also Tuesday, the board approved a resolution to seek a judges approval to borrow up to the full $4.3 million, and they requested the administration to prepare materials concerning a possible supplemental levy in March. The board must decide in January whether to pursue the levy, and for how much.
