North Judson-San Pierre support staff members are pulling extra duty due to the budget shortfalls the corporation is facing. In addition to extra work, Superintendent Lynn Johnson says they also had less time to get ready for the start of the school year. Students came back a week earlier this year due to the adoption of the balanced calendar.
Johnson publicly expressed her appreciation during Tuesday’s school board meeting to the custodians, members of the technology department and all of the office staffs. She notes they are all doing more with less people. Johnson also recognized administrators who are doing double duty and the staff at the central office who are picking up the slack since the transportation director’s position was eliminated and handling a number of other tasks.
Johnson made her comments during the “Bluejay Way” portion of the board meeting. It’s a monthly recognition of extraordinary efforts by someone in the school corporation community.
