Unreal. They blow smoke up everyone's a**, threatening to lay off 300 people, and then this miracle money appears. Right . . ..

I do not personally think the money should be given to anything or put to any other use. The school system needs the money and that is where the money should stay in the school system. If this keeps people from losing their jobs and our children from paying the price then I do not care were the money came from.

What a moron. Why wouldn't we (yes, sadly I work in CCPS) put it back into the schools where very necessary staff were laid off? THere are schools that needed those extra hands around because they have a high number of special ed, esl, or at risk students that need the extra help so that the school doesn't lose its federal funding..... THAT WOULD BE A SMARTER MOVE.....
this ship is sinking fast..... i hope the public votes in another school board and calls for the resignation of Newsome. PLEASE SAVE OUR SCHOOLS!!!

Yeah I'm guessing Newsome won't be taking his 7% paycut this year so the raise he got last year when nobody else in the system got a raise will stay in his wallet.

by the way, you missed the point of the comment, so let me slow it down to your speed...... If the county has a surplus, that means taxpayers paid to much..... does that make sense to you?

Let me put it slower for you because its obvious you can't read but the SCHOOL system had a surplus not the county. The school system gets their money from the state, county, and federal government.

Well what planet do you know of that has the existence of life? Must be nice to be in a house and actually have the appraisal value go up instead of going down. Never heard of a vehicle appreciating unless you go out and buy a newer car.

So your the one that rather not fork over money for schools? You think I like putting money into social security knowing that it probably won't be there when I can use it? No I don't like it but I just grin and bear it. There will always be taxes so you might as well get over it.

Instead of giving teachers pay raises..keep on staff that is going to be laid off. Keep programs that are going to be cut. Yes pay raises are nice, but so is my children's education.
