Summer flex schedule in Hillsborough

Like everyone else, Hillsborough school employees are facing sticker shock at the gas pump. Only their boss wants to help.

Superintendent MaryEllen Elia announced Tuesday night that employees working over the summer would have the flexibility to work four, 10-hour days each week. They could take off either Monday or Friday.

There are some exceptions. Employees at schools with five-day summer school programs couldn't participate until the session ends. The district plans to remain open Monday through Friday, so scheduling will have to be coordinated with supervisors to keep offices running smoothly.

"This is a way to help our employees save those few dollars each week which can help them," Elia said.
