Despite several days of rumors and speculation that John Green would step down as superintendent of the Jackson County School System at Monday night's board of education meeting, no action was taken on the matter.
Exactly what has spurred the rumors isn't clear and neither Green nor any BOE member commented on the speculation at the board meeting. Green has been at the center of controversy in the system after proposing a number of budget cuts.
There was no discussion of the budget Monday night, but it was a topic at a work session on Thursday night. The proposed budget is expected to be presented at the June BOE meeting.
Among the discussion Thursday night was cutting expenses by adding back seven furlough days for staff and 15 furlough days for the “leadership team,” which includes administrators.
Green pointed out that a $3 million reduction in the tax digest will require even more budget cuts, including possible staff cuts. If the seven furlough days are not implemented, it could mean cutting 23 teachers to address the budget shortfall, he said.
