|Communication provided to terminated Newpoint staff today, 6-2-2015|
I have been contacted by several now former employees of Newpoint schools in Pensacola.
According to these sources, all Newpoint staff have been terminated as of today.
Staff has been told they may receive the rest of their pay if adequate funding remains in their schools' accounts after today. Otherwise, these staff members are being directed to apply for unemployment and to contact the Escambia County School Board if they have additional concerns.
Several staff were on 12 month salary schedules and want to be paid the monies owed to them for June, July and August.
Superintendent of schools Malcolm Thomas has told me he is withholding Newpoint's June payment of approximately $140,000 and will not release this money until he has assurance that all financial obligations owed by Newpoint, including salaries to their employees, have been met.
Much more to come on this entire mess,
