THE Public School System has already recalled over 500 furloughed teachers, Education Commissioner Dr. Alfred Ada said on KKMP radio Tuesday.

They are currently undergoing training for remote learning, which will be implemented by PSS when its new school year starts on Sept. 8.

In July, he said PSS recalled the furloughed registrars because “we need them to begin the process for opening up the schools.”

A week ago, Ada said, PSS also recalled its furloughed maintenance and janitorial staff members.

He added that PSS needs to start cleaning the campuses and to ensure that all public schools are ready in September.

Ada said the goal of PSS is to bring all its employees back to work. “Everyone is needed at schools. We do need our truant officers. We do need our teacher aides…. They will be informed of the date that they have to come back to report for work.”

In April, following a steep decline in CNMI government revenue due to the Covid-19 pandemic, PSS furloughed over 700 employees, including locally funded teachers and support staff members.

Since then PSS has received $23.1 million in Education Stabilization Funds through the federal CARES Act.
