As the Jackson County Board of Education learned on Monday, if something is too good to be true, it probably is.
After initially approving its 2012-2013 school calendar with no employee furlough days — for the first time in at least two years — the BOE revised its calendar this week to include four furlough days next school year.
“That might have been a little bit too ambitious,” superintendent Shannon Adams said of the initial calendar.
Two of the four furlough days — also called calendar reduction days — will be tacked on to the Christmas break. Instead of starting winter break on Friday, Dec. 21 (as was initially adopted), the holiday will start on Wednesday, Dec. 19.
