Employees Accept Furloughs in O.C.

Teachers and support staff in nearby school districts are agreeing to unpaid furlough days as California’s public schools struggle to make ends meet.

In the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District, teachers agreed to take off four unpaid furlough days to save about $6 million.  About 96 percent of teachers in the Orange County district voted to approve the furloughs as part of their contract, which the school board OK’d last month, according to The Orange County Register.

The Orange Unified School District meanwhile approved five unpaid days off for classified school employees, or support staff, The Register also reported.
