You're blaming the BOS? Try the following...Three members of the Fluvanna Board of Supervisors have failed to meet their most fundamental responsibility - to do no harm. They voted against the community by a last minute cut in the budget that resulted in gross underfunding of the schools. For the cost of a monthly ice cream cone for each family in the county, the Board of Supervisors have turned their backs on the people of this community. Our children do not deserve this treatment and our county deserves better. What a shame.
1. The school board and their incompetents. "Suddenly" trailers need to be removed and they did not allocate for that? A miscalculation in the cost of heating? This article is rife with shoddy management.
2. The previous BOS. Allowing the new HS to be built and refusing to get a votes' referendum on the funding...misrepresenting property assessments. Major "errors" due to either stupidity or corruption.
3. Did Supt. Keller not look at the budget before she was hired? She knew what was coming down the pike. I guarantee you that five retired private-sector executives could be found living in this county who could find 5 administration positions at the district level and 5 at the school level to cut.
At this point, who could even believe the figures cited in the press release? All we have heard about are errors in calculations, mistakes in insurance plan costs, etc.
Cronies need to go in this administration. Bring in new blood and clean up the fiscal mess. I assure you, in contrast to Breslauer's lament, "the little ones" will learn just fine.
