Fayette Local Schools superintendent Russell Griggs is adding a few hours to his work week, but it won’t be at his Fayette office.
Griggs consented to a request by the Swanton Board of Education to work a few hours each week for that district while their superintendent is on a leave of absence for up to two months.
The Fayette board approved a reduced schedule for Griggs for the 2009-10 school year, cutting his previous part-time status to about half-time.
“Therefore,” he said, “the commitment to Fayette will not be reduced further, but instead the commitment to Swanton will be added.”
The contract with Swanton is on a daily as-needed basis and is expected to being sometime in September and wrap up around Thanksgiving.
Griggs said his primary obligation will remain with Fayette and a tentative schedule will continue to be posted on the school website for access by staff and board members.
As in the past, Griggs will remain in contact via cell phone and e-mail when he is not in the Fayette office.
