Pittsburgh schools could furlough 20 teachers
Pittsburgh Public Schools has sent out preliminary furlough notices to 20 teachers and 19 teacher aides, district officials announced Tuesday.
The board is expected to take action on the furloughs at its legislative meeting Aug. 27.
“It is definitely anticipated the number for both groups could go down, based on attrition and school needs,” said district spokeswoman Ebony Pugh.
The district will send final notices to affected employees on Aug. 1.
In 2012, the district furloughed 190 teachers and 81 other employees to reduce the district's budget deficits.
