At a board meeting March 19, which was closed to the public to maintain social distancing, the board unanimously approved a measure that gives Superintendent Aleesia Johnson flexibility to continue paying staff while students are out of school.

For now, hourly staff not reporting to work will be paid the same as if school was still in session, though the district is working on details to continue that practice.

Employees such as bus drivers and food service workers will be paid extra for their continued work.

The board also approved innovation agreements with outside partners at Emma Donnan Elementary and Middle School (partnering with Adelante Schools), Louis B. Russell Jr. School 48 (partnering with Phalen Leadership Academy) and Stephen Foster School 67 (partnering with The PATH School).

Arlington Woods School 99 will also transition from a traditional public school into an innovation school.
