TLDR: The chief financial officer of Durham Public Schools, Paul LeSieur, has resigned following a payroll error that resulted in overpayments to staff members. The error, which occurred between July and December 2023, was due to a classified salary schedule approval. As a result, employees staged walkouts and protests, leading to a budget amendment of $4.5 million to cover their paychecks through January. The board approved second checks for classified staff to ensure they receive their full pay for this month.
