Our current employees are overworked (this was said by the board two meetings ago).....in the direction of sustainability!
We are NOW meeting and exceeding state mandates, as well as local expectations. We ARE building a technology backbone, investing in computers, curriculum, buses and buildings --
CHILDREN'S FIRST BUDGETING PUT OUR STUDENTS FIRST
WHILE MAINTAINING FISCAL INTEGRITY!
Most important, we ARE being honest about what is needed through 2017. This is REFORM at the local level, and this is working together toward
Overworked = understaffed.
Also, with someone on the board with a business background (at least that's what he ran on) and all the decisions about "children's first" budgeting that have been made the past 2 years, why do we suddenly need an advisor that has NEVER done this type of work in a school system before (by his own admittance)?
If "children's first" budgeting works, then why does it need a "booster shot" from an outside organization?
Why the reason for the Athletic department to get a cash advance? Why ask for another 1/2 an art teacher?
Seems as though the budget was cut a little to close for it's own "substainability".
