Facts: I agree with you on most of your comments. I know we have many dedicated teachers in our district who deserve a fair wage. However, the district must tighten it belt to survive. We have overspent on so many non-educational items that it really makes me ill. Like I have said before there seems to be a huge disconnect between Herring and the BOE. It all starts at the top, with Herring. Also, spanks to the Review for once again not providing a comment section.

Pefect timing for the "poverty" report considering negotiations are coming up. What? No mention of 1.5 million dollar locker rooms, or a 50 thousand dollar scoreboard that doesnt work? How about that our legal fees are 4-5 times higher than any other district? The board cant do anything without consulting a law firm. How do other districts do it? Just think of what could be accomplished with that money that has been wasted. Oh and nice of the review to protect the school board again with no comments section. Steelergirl, if you read the report, we have no local taxpayers. As for the 18% special education, probably related to failed parental responsibility during the most important years of a childs life when they are forming the brain pathways used for the rest of their life. Looking at the graduation rate, the schools may not follow the states timeline on what year the kids pass the tests, but they are doing a great job by the end. Look at the big picture.

No surprise from this study, we are overstaffed, we overspend and we need to make cuts. We should have one of the best State Report cards but we have the very worse in the conty. Also, why did we need a consulting firm tells us these things when we have a treasurer who should be doing it ? How much did this study cost us the taxpayers ?
