The Board of Ed needs to remember why they were elected, they are responsible for this mess! They are supposed to be representing the interests of the taxpayers, overseeing the Educational needs of the community and not an advocate for the superintendant. Why, because the real reason that voters are rejecting the budget is because they won't support loosing Teachers for a 9% Superintendant raise. However, what they don't know is the Superintendant will get her raise that anyway because the Board gave her a 3 year contract ensuring the raise regardless! So, here we are with no budget, a Superintendant gettig a 9% raise in this tough fiscal climate, teacher's being let go and an iraite unimformed region 10. The real loosers are ultimately the students because more teachers and classes will be cut!! If you want the budget to pass, get us a Superintendant who will work with the community ( and probibly for a better price ), have a special forum to hear concerns ( get the word out) and restore those positions that are needed if possible.
There needs to be a sense of ergency here folks, this is very serious and everyone including the Selectmen, needs to get involved!!!!!!!
