Another guest column given to the school district administration. Should parents be demanding the same treatment, rather than just "letter to the editor?"
...as we work toward a budget reduction target of $300,000 for the 2006-07 school year.
Please note that we, the parents, are not working toward a budget reduction. We're working to ensure services for our kids.
Darcie received a letter from Debra Bowers, Tami Reynolds, and Jeff Priess.
While comparison numbers from district to district are not perfect, a variance as large as our districts is a very good indication that reductions are necessary and appropriate.
So, to recap, they agree the comparison with other districts is not accurate, they offer no additional data, and still no info on how they measure the outcomes of our program or the comparisons.
In other news, I've been invited to meet with Debra and Tami tomorrow morning. Updates to come.
