By the time the board of Pittsburgh Public Schools voted on nine furloughs tonight, all but one part-time teacher already had been called back.
The official furlough notices went out on Aug. 1 and included two teachers, a psychologist and six paraprofessionals. The board had to officially approve them, but openings -- either regular positions or positions vacated by leaves -- have occurred since then.
Superintendent Linda Lane said she feels "great" that the employees are back at work.
"We've had such a positive start in so many ways. This just adds to it for me," she said.
