The Defense Department’s schools will not have regular classes on the days the Pentagon’s civilian employees go on furlough, the Department of Defense Education Activity’s director has told the American Forces Press Service and the Pentagon Channel.

Marilee Fitzgerald said 12-month DODEA employees will be subject to the same furloughs as the department’s other civilian workers and nine-month employees will also have to go on unpaid leave, Karen Parrish writes.

Full-year employees will be furloughed 11 days and nine-month employees will stay home from work for up to five days starting in September, Fitzgerald said in the interview.

Schools will stay open on those days but regular classes will not occur, she said.

She added DODEA has no furlough plans for beyond the coming school year.
