wonder, if you charged the out of district students any tuition, you lose all credit for them in state funding and Robin Hood credit, so that's not a good plan. That's how state funding has worked for Texas school for 20 years. AC
So they do not pay an Athletic fee or would this be consider tution?

That's because the kool-aid they have already guzzled makes them weak and spineless.

Yes, they, those who attack you on topix, are spineless and ball-less. Yellow belly asshooles.

I say its time to remove Pasadena from DPISD! Lets get city limits to be the schools boundaries. Keep Pasadena in Pasadena, LaPorte in LaPorte, and Deer Park in Deer Park city limits only!
Deer Park does not need Pasadena citizens passing taxes onto citizens of Deer Park. What can be done?
You could not be a bigger dumb ass. DPISD boundaries do not coincide with the city limits. Deer Park has five schools in Pasadena. Hell, La Porte ISD has schools in Deer Park.
Voter turnout is high in District 8 in Pasadena, in fact more people vote here than any other district in city elections.
You also understand that DPISD collects taxes from those that live in their boundaries regardless of what city they live in.
A large number of the new home construction along East Blvd is zoned for La Porte ISD, and thanks to open enrollment those kids with a Deer Park address have a choice. Their parents still pay LPISD taxes.
Baywood Oaks, Baywood Shadows, Village Grove and Santorini all contribute a large sum of cash to the district based on property values higher than the district average. Pasadena ISD would love that $ and the schools Deer Park has built within the city.
The optical-rectal astigmatism you have is hurting your common sense.

That is what should have been done first! You take care of your own house before making me do it! If I can't afford to pay my bills, the first thing I do is cut my budget. Why is this so hard for governments and school districts to do. I will tell you why, because people will sell their souls for a little convenience and for little johnny to be able to play with laptops that outdate every two years and for johnny not to have to learn how to read books or write in cursive. Oh, and the teachers get a raised based on forced taxation to boot. Well excuse me but I can't go force a raise out of my customers, how come you do? Deer Parkians, you got hosed.
You do not know of which you speak. Cutting programs means:

No dyslexia program.
No reading recovery
No junior high or high school band, choir or orchestra.
No sports that do not charge admission and pay for themselves.

There was a 14 million dollar hole created by the state, not mismanagement. The district did cut personnel, froze salaries, as well as other things in order to shrink that hole to 9 million or so.

The only way to fix the problem without a tax increase is to cut EVERYTHING that the state doesn't require and then increase class sizes and cut teachers until its back in line.

Teachers haven't had a raise in 3 yrs. during this time their healthcare prices have vastly increased. On average teachers are making 10-15% less because of it.

So your solution is that when the choice is between gutting a school of nearly all of its programs and offering only the base level requirement or paying an extra 15 bucks a month: we should definitely screw over the kids.

interesting.
oh no

Now the hole is fixed. Giving raises all across the board will be a bunch of money. A new hole will be created. I thought everyone was just happy to be able to keep their job.

High schoolers have to have a year of fine art in order to graduate. So art & drama would have been the only choices? And to think years and years ago, kids went to school to learn reading writing and math. Times have changed haven't they?

They need a single fine arts credit. The choices as with everything would very limited.

Times have changed. They would change more if people like you got their wish. The schools would be gutted and folks would move away.

stop your freaking crying, you got what you wanted so shut the helll up. The school had a problem due to the borrowing and having to pay it back, nothing is free, if you can't pay for it with yesterdays income then don't buy it.

Cut the school day in half.
Fire all but the most essential staff.
Do away with all extracurricular programs that cost money.
Completely gut the administration.

Any courses that students still need to graduate should be completed online at home at their own expense.

Then cut school taxes.

I've always advocated abolishing public education. It's pure socialism.
