What's interesting is that overall enrollment in #834 has been decreasing for about five years; only the two elementary schools cited have experienced increased enrollment.

Seriously, were any of this administrators or board members paying attention on election night? Our schools are already generously funded and as someone who has supported every operational levy put to the voters, I can say that I will not support any of the big-ticket proposals the interim superintendent mentions. Education apparently remains the only segment of society that is allowed to ignore the economic challenges the rest of us are facing. I support public education, but we are already paying our teachers more than every district in the state, despite test scores that strangely do not quite rank that high, and we're going to be shelling out more money than we should be for an early childhood education facility, that undoubtedly will cost more money to operate than the present building. This district had better figure out a way to make due with what it currently has because if I am finally fed up with the district's continuing appetite for our tax dollars without any significant increases in achievement. I continue to support all-day kindergarten, but have the test scores (not my favorite way to judge, but what else do we have) or students benefitted to the level of our financial support for this program? I can only imagine the reaction from those who are less supportive of our school district. Enough is enough, Mr. Nelson.

Why do they always claim to be great and then ask for more money? Either you have a problem and money MIGHT be PART of the solution or you don't have any problems and don't need more money.
