Schools Superintendent James Meza said it is the Air Force that wants the instructors reduced to a 10-month year.
"We are working closely with the U.S. Air Force
to meet the demands of the program at a time when the Air Force is experiencing dwindling funds due to sequestration," Meza
"The union's press release on the Junior ROTC program misrepresents the facts," Meza
"It is campaign rhetoric designed to mislead the public before the important millage renewal vote this Saturday."
In 2011, 20 employees were affected by the ROTC instructor pay cut.
At the time, Meza
said it was unavoidable due to the school board's tight operating budget.
