I know you’ve been involved with the budget process through school community councils and other avenues. As you may know, we had a special board meeting on the 24th – and will have another one on Tuesday, the 31st – as we’re building the budget. Here is a copy of last night’s PowerPoint presentation that I sent to you earlier this week and reference in the below snapshot. Board meeting May 24, 2011.
I think the Board is keenly aware of sacrifices you have made and continue to make. In fact, as we talked about changes to the health insurance plan over the last few years, board members rose to applaud the 100 or so employees who attended the meeting. Please attend on the 31st at 8pm if you can.
I encourage you to look at the presentation closely. In a very real way you are the most credible (and therefore the best) advocates of public education in general and certainly our district and schools.
Thanks for all you do and have a great weekend!
