Fort Bragg schools Superintendent Dr. Emily Marsh announced on the school district’s website April 12 that the potential for furloughs for Department of Defense employees will not affect the remainder of the 2012-2013 school year.

“Although we have not received any additional information about how DoDEA (Department of Defense Education Activity) schools will be affected by a proposed furlough, DoD’s delay in implementing a furlough will result in no furlough days for school employees during the remainder of School Year 2012-2013. Schools will remain open and in full operation for the remainder of this school year,” Marsh posted.

“We do not know how a potential furlough will affect the beginning of School Year 2013-14. I want to assure you that our furlough planning for School Year 2013-14 will provide for a full-year of academic credit for students and maintain school accreditation standards. When additional information is available, we will share that information with the Fort Bragg Community.” Marsh said.

DoDEA and Fort Bragg leadership are working closely to minimize any disruptive impact the furloughs may have on Fort Bragg Families.

“We appreciate your patience with the budgetary uncertainty.”

Fort Bragg will continue to update the community regarding the effects of sequestration through the news media, official social media outlets and the Fort Bragg Press Center’s sequestration page.
