According to an article in today’s Times-Georgian, they used $70,000 from their RESERVE account and $167,000 from cuts in “other areas” to reduce the number of furlough days from three to 2.5.  They are also converting two teacher work days to furlough days.    According to the calendar on the DC School System website, there is only one teacher work day on January 5–but there are a total of eight days in which either the high schools, middle schools, or elementary schools get released after 1/2 a day.   Why?  I think I mentioned in an earlier post that DC has $38 million in reserves and has said they will not be dipping into those reserves.  Yet Carroll County is.
