With Gov. Lee’s announcement that school systems in Tennessee remain closed through at least April 24 due to the ongoing COVID-19 issue, the central office has received numerous calls and emails from employees about pay during this time.
The Rutherford County School Board has already approved an extension of inclement weather days to cover the current pay period and we are working on a plan to continue regular pay through April 24 for all Rutherford County Schools’ employees, including our hourly classified employees, pending Board approval.
Our employees are a valuable resource that will be needed back in our schools as soon as this current issue is past so an orderly, prompt return to the classroom education of our community’s children can once again commence. Meanwhile, we encourage all our employees to follow the guidance of our federal, state and local leaders to prevent the spread of this illness as much as possible.
