High school teachers tentatively agree to five furlough days

Furlough days are one step closer to reality after the Nevada Joint Union High School district and teachers union signed a tentative agreement today.

The agreement calls for five furlough days for the next two school years and ends weeks of negotiations between district officials and teachers. If all district employees take the furloughs, it will save the district $500,000 and help close a $2.1 million budget shortfall.

Teachers will vote Tuesday whether to approve the plan, and the district will vote at its board meeting March 17.
