Saltonstall may lose longer year

Salem: Superintendent wants to offer summer school programs in city instead


Russell said his goal is to start a discussion with the school board and community about “ways to provide better summer programming in a wider range of areas for more kids.”

If the change is adopted, it likely would mean less pay for Saltonstall teachers, who currently are compensated for the extra days. That issue, Russell said, would have to be negotiated with the Salem Teachers Union.

The superintendent’s recommendation is part of his budget proposal for next school year and will be discussed at future school board meetings.
