Gladewater I.S.D cuts local leave days
Gladewater, TX — During Tuesday nights board meeting Gladewater I.S.D cut 3 employee local leave days.
Employees will now only have two local leave days along with their five state mandated leave days.
The cuts come in anticipation of cuts in state funding.
Gladewater Superintendent Dr. J.P. Richardson released this statement:
"By reducing the number of teacher local days GISD provides from 5 to 2, the district would save approximately $168,000. This will help offset the budget reductions the district is prepared to receive from the current Legislative session. GISD is prepared to lose funding between $1.1 to
$1.9 million a year over the next two years due to the recent Legislative session."
