extend the school year to make use of the m-t & idle bldg. & teachers. This wil be very cost effective over a few years & permitt earlier graduation time.
If a seat on the bus is provided and not used then charge the one for who it is provided ; I see buses that are only half full.
Turn off A/C & open the window ; a little fresh air helps.
Do they just want to demonstrate or are they really interested in garnering an education ?
Pay the opportunity cost of education if you want it or be quiet.
Per Mr Ed , are you a bunch of WIMPS ?

Why dont these protesters realize the best thing . Give across the board cuts in pay and benefits to ALL teachers administrators and school board members. DONT cut any teachers jobs. Dont say it cant be done either. This is the smartest fairest most sensible thing to do and every school board should be thinking this way. No IFS ANDS or BUTS And also the school kids themselves bear a lot of the blame for the failing scholastic performance levels.

yet another school in trouble, when will it be about the childern and not about the money, the kids are the future. the teachers offer everything they can and yet they are the ones that get told to do even more. Many wonder why the people having the largest paychecks get the right to make the cuts. Spread the wealth from top to bottom then try the budget again. you worry about people not being able to pay a tax, but then you have to worry about the people moving out of the district becauce the school isn't good enough to stay?
