Did he mention the sacrifice he was willing to make? Maybe he will cut his salary by 7+%. Maybe the county could force retirement on personnel which has already put in their 30+ years. In this study, he will most likely find that some staff has been in the same position for a while and is truly overpaid for the position they're in.
What would happen if he shortened the school year? How much overhead could possibly be saved?(Some, none?)
Would anyone be willing to take a couple furlough days instead of losing a job? What would happen if all school employees including Superintendent and staff was required to take 3-5 furlough days? Any savings there?
Maybe these approaches could save some jobs.

I feel very sorry for Chesterfield and everyone who may lose thier jobs, as a teacher myself in a neighboring system the thought of being cut becuase of tight budgets is scary to say least. But has anyone thought of what this economy might to do poor systems such as Petersburg who barely stay afloat as it is without all the technology and special programs that Chesterfield, Henrico and Hanover have? They are lucky to have computers with internet much less athletic funding.

Also as a teacher with over 15 years of experience, how can possibly justify keeping central office staff, who make a whole more in salary than a teacher does, over the teachers needed in school where it counts to educate the students. I bet over half over central office staff in all systems could be cut without it effecting the schools or the teaching in the schools.

Those questions need some answers, the board of supervisors still hold the purse strings. Raise the taxes and the trouble is over.
The republicans are cowards, how can they let the children down.
Probably none of the supervisors have any school age children, why would they care about yours.

Ask Kaine. It has come out on channel 6 that Kaine took $20 million in federal money from the Chesterfield County school budget 2 months ago.

Don't blame the Supervisors, this is Kaine's fault!

And the idiot nothead wants Kaine to be president?

Shows yet again what a moron nothead truly is!

The board of republican supervisors turned down the federal stimulus money just like the republicans in the general assembly turned down 125 million unemployment stimulus money.
Don't blame Kaine, blame the republicans.

You might want to do a little research nothead. As usual, you are wrong. Like you said on another thread, you never tire of being wrong.

Gov. Kaine took the money to help balance the state budget.

Here's your sign: MORON!

If he did, the "teaheads" were thankful. Because they didn't want to be caught eating crow.

"If he did"???

Once again nothead, you prove to the world what an idiot you are.

Research it yourself. I refuse to spoon feed you because you are too stupid and lazy to do it for yourself!

How's that "top senior adviser" job with Gov. McDonnell you claimed earlier this week?

Just keep spewing your crap. Idiot Democrats like you are the best recruiting tool available.
