We had a workday yesterday and got hit with a bombshell. We have lost quite a few kids this year due to a new charter school that opened. Last we were told, all was okay but budgets would just be really tight. Well....yesterday we got told in staff mtg in a very "oh by the way" demeanor that effective immediately we would all have a pay cut. On top of that, there is not enough money to pay us for all of a month in the spring so we will be expected to just work anyway and not get paid for half of that month. And the kicker....we are salaried over a 12 month period so we get paid in summer too. We were told that there would be no money to pay us over summer and that we'd just have to do without. From the tiny info w could get, money that has been coming out of our checks so far that was to go to cover summer months has been used to cover monthly losses for operating costs. We are all very angry. We also got told that we are to not let on to parents that there are any financial issues going on.
