CCSC board addresses employee pay

Tuesday, March 24, 2020

CLOVERDALE -- With some calling in and others reaching out online, the Cloverdale School Board addressed paying employees during the school shutdown Tuesday evening.

The board considered a resolution authorizing Superintendent Greg Linton and any designees to “take any and all action as such person deems necessary or desirable ... to ensure the safety and well-being of our school community for the remainder of the current school term ...”

The document essentially implied that the superintendent could determine how it would be best to pay Cloverdale Schools’ employees during the duration of the shutdown.

Linton stipulated that all hourly employees within the school corporation should receive their full pay. Though they cannot actually come to work, he said employees will still do their part with e-learning and food service moving forward.

The board unanimously approved the resolution.

Linton also provided two updates concerning meal service and the academic schedule as it stands. He said the school corporation decided that meals would be provided on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

He emphasized that others are permitted to get meals for their neighbors, and that such travel was being considered essential.

Additionally, Linton provided that from March 30 to May 1, e-learning would take place on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

As such, the school corporation would use waiver days recently allowed by the state on Tuesdays and Thursdays. These days will be utilized by teachers to prepare for classes.

In other business, the board also approved for the school corporation to deposit funds on Tuesdays and Thursdays, instead of daily as would be usual.

The next regular meeting of the Cloverdale School Board is scheduled for Monday, April 13 at 7 p.m. in the Arthur L. Johnson Administration Office near Cloverdale High School.
