DAILY DEBRIEF: Superintendent Pirozzolo says Auburn schools’ finances could be big challenge (podcast)

One day after we talked with Auburn Enlarged City School District Superintendent Jeff Pirozzolo about the return to class after the Thanksgiving break, he informed families that the junior high would be fully-remote through Tuesday, December 8th.

The cause? Contact tracing on two staff members that tested positive for COVID-19 resulted in dozens of students and a few teachers to be placed into mandatory quarantine.




While other schools in the district won’t be impacted by this particular batch of positives or mandatory quarantines, Pirozzolo says these kinds of spot-cases of COVID-19 have been one of his biggest concerns from the start.

Today on The Daily Debrief – a conversation with Superintendent Jeff Pirozzolo about what’s next for his district after Thanksgiving break, and an update on some of his biggest concerns – including the finances of a district in serious need.
