Well I guess the you know what just hit the fan. 15 classified positions cut. I guess now would be a good time to put an operating levy on in a special election in say February. When did they finally decide they were running out of cash? Who received raises in the last year? What effect will this have on our already dismal test scores? More layoffs, Transportation cuts? Whats in our future. A levy passing with the economy the way it is would surprise me, taking fund and spending them on a special election would be a waste.
On a positive note
In todays News-Herald the three candidates for school board were interviewed.
Mary E. Hada, Gerald D.Kalb to incumbents and fine members of the community.
Steve Costell the challenger in his interview stated;
If elected,he'd like to re-examine district grading policy, including the high schools rounding up of final grades to at least 50 percent.
"What seems to be the trend now is to treat the symptoms of the problem, meaning modify our grading policy to make it easier for people to graduate."
Well Steve alot of people I know have been wanting to hear that. You have my vote and I will help get your message out.
If the other two candidates would like to use this forum to let the community know their views on this or any other subject, this blog. is open to them.
