Skeleton Shifts Eliminated in Iberville Parish
Iberville Parish school system Central Office employees can no longer work "skeleton shifts" during holiday breaks. Superintendent Ed Cancienne told The Advocate Monday a recent Louisiana Attorney General's Office opinion said the longtime tradition violates state law. Cancienne said some 12-month employees in the district's Central Office received additional paid time off on designated work days during holiday breaks — like Thanksgiving and Christmas — through the use of minimally staffed shifts. School Board member Darlene Ourso asked for the attorney general's opinion after Chief Financial Officer Jolain Landry told her that Central Office staff received additional paid time off during holiday breaks although it was not included in their contracts.
