Schools pass on Garceau extension

July 1, 2012

WOONSOCKET — The School Committee has opted to turn down an extension of its former Director of Instruction and Administration's job-sharing assignment to the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE), at least for now.
Mark Garceau has been working for the state agency for the past year under a loan arrangement with Woonsocket, which allows his salary to be paid for through city accounts. He technically no longer works for the local school department under that arrangement, which was up for renewal Wednesday.
Garceau works exclusively in a Race to the Top grant-funded assignment at RIDE. His $115,000 salary is paid from the Woonsocket School Depart-ment's line item for a deputy superintendent, even though that job description has not been used in several years.
During Wednesday night’s meeting, School Committee Chairwoman Anita McGuire-Forcier said the local department should approve the extension of Garceau's arrangement with RIDE in order to avoid paying him 45 past sick days and vacation time when the agreement concludes.
