Broward Schools Announces Administrator Furloughs

FORT LAUDERDALE ( – One day after sending out pink slips to hundreds of teachers; Broward County Superintendent Jim Notter announced that school administrators are also going to be forced to take a number of furlough days.

“These actions are being taken to help mitigate the anticipated budget shortfall that the District is facing,” Notter said in a statement.

The furloughs would impact administrators and principals. Central and area office administrators and principals will have 15 furlough days in the next year. Assistant principals will have 10 furlough days for the coming year.

According to Broward County Public Schools, those furloughs will be the equivalent of a four to six percent decrease in salaries for a savings of $4,553,085.

Broward Schools face a budget deficit of $141 million heading into the 2011-2012 school year.

    Get rid of the principals they don’t do anything anyway. They get six figure salaries for sitting on their ass all day and complaining about getting too many referrals. School districts should allow teachers to run the shools by committiee. Let the principals get a real job for a change and save a lot of money.
