They will be discussing cut backs. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?

I would say cuts must start at the top this time and work down. Too many high paid administrators, plain and simple. The teachers union took a pay freeze but yet admins take a raise? Lets get real people....What really will happen, the lower end will get cut back, pay to play will increase across the board. All this will be blamed on state funding, which is a huge issue but how can we continue paying the high salaries of a few people? How many more principals do we need? Start at the top and keep those who need the jobs and quit stealing from the kids and making the classes huge.

I must agree. for what you are paying 1 administrator you could have 3 teachers. A good teacher can make all the difference in a kids life.

Well they got rid of the monroe nurse. They also cut the assistant principle to 1/2 time, and 1/2 time teacher. The big shocker was letting go one of the football coaches, so sad, well at least we still have 4 left on the payroll. The one that bothered me the most was the part time band assistant for band they let go. Brent Ritter does a great job with the students, he works with all 3 schools, he deserves an assistant!! I guess that will leaves a superintendant at $140,000.00, oh and another 6,000.00 paid to her for health insurance..........

Yeah! She's overpaid, and it's impossible to find her email address online to discuss issues at the schools. Basically, she's more highly paid than everyone else, she does nothing of note for our children, and she doesn't even have to communicate with the public! Worst. Super intendent. Ever. Thanks, school board, for taking away people we need and leaving us with the dregs of the administrative world.

Could not have said it any better. When Elkee retired she should of been on an entirely different pay scale. But w have to remember its the school board to blame. Bad decisions left and right. Cut one teacher who lives in district but keep someone out of district. Lets get real we are another 350,000 behind its time to grind the axe and quit the nickle and dime b.s.

If you don't like what this board is doing, get a petition and get your name on the ballot for the next election. or just sit back and complain on topix.
