Update on high school furlough tug-of-war at Wednesday’s meeting

Furlough talks between Nevada Joint Union High School District and two employee unions are taking on a new sense of urgency, with less than a month to go before the district is required to send out pink slips.

Leaders from teachers and classified staff unions will report on the progress at Wednesday’s board of trustees meeting, set for 6 p.m. at the Park Avenue Alternative Education site, 140 Park Ave. in Grass Valley.

Members of the teachers union will meet tonight to discuss the proposals amongst themselves, while the staff union met last week.

Groups and district staff are trying to decide whether to implement five furlough days into next year’s schedule, which could save the district $500,000 and partially alleviate a $2 million budget shortfall.
