LEBANON, Ore. -- Lebanon Community Schools will begin three-day school weeks for the remainder of the school year as part of a partial furlough announced by Superintendent Bo Yates on Monday. 

In a letter to families, Yates said the school board reached agreements with labor partners to institute the furlough. 

"This will allow us to save funds from this year's budget and apply them to the 2020-2021 budget, essentially trading current distance learning days for traditional school days in the fall," Yates said. 

The district said it expects most employees to participate in the Work Share Oregon program, which allows employers to use unemployment benefits to subsidize a portion of lost wages for employees whose work time is reduced. Most employees will be eligible for unemployment benefits enabled through the CARES Act at about $600 per week in addition to any state unemployment dollars, the district said.

Teachers will continue to instruct and keep contact with students Monday through Wednesday.

The furlough days are as follows:

  • May 21
  • May 22
  • May 28
  • May 29
  • June 4
  • June 5
  • June 10
  • June 11
