  • “… noted that the bulk of the spending increase comes from contributions to the state Teachers’ Retirement System and the Employees’ Retirement System pension funds.”

    Hmmmm ….so it’s really NOT all about our kids? Gee, who would have thought that!

    So, we have to tighten our belts, but teachers and other government employees don’t? Gosh, that sounds equitable to me!

  • UNFORTUNATELY AS FAR AS PUBLIC THERE WASN’T MUCH IN ATTENDANCE..THE MAJORITY OF THE ATTENDEES WERE ADMINISTRATION TO SUPPORT DAVID WICKS .
    AS SOMEONE THAT ATTENDS ALL THE MEETINGS ,I WISH MORE OF THE PUBLIC WOULD COME AND ASK QUESTIONS.

  • We’ll make our voices heard when we force a contingency budget.

  • The BOE actually voted to amend the agenda from the February 12 meeting. The original minutes indicated the vote was 6-0, and the amended minutes indicate the vote was 5-1 with one board member being absent.

  • AD, thank you for your comment. You are correct and the story has been changed.

  • Greetings Gary…. This style of taxation must stop…”A Politician cuts a DEAL with the TEACHERS UNION” and we the taxpayers get the bill….The first thing we must due is get the entire education budget in the general election…and get these socialists off our back !!!!

  • More proof that increased spending and taxation does not go to helping students. The young enthusiastic teachers are the first to go. The public has no voice in the teacher pension contribution formula. If we did maybe more would attend.

  • speaking for myself… I don’t have any questions. I only have an answer and that is NO on May 17th!

  • No, they don’t… as a matter of fact, 15 teachers got STEP increases!!

  • THERE ARE NO MORE CONTINGENCY BUDGETS.

  • WHO VOTED NO LAST NIGHT?THE FIRST VOTE GRIFFING WAS OUT AND I BELIEVE DEVITO VOTED NO.LAST NIGHT DEVITO WAS OUT….

  • You’re wrong Laurie. There is still a contingency budget, it’s just that the maximum increase allowed will be 0%.

    That’s perfect as far as I’m concerned. They’ll get the same amount as last year, and not a penny more.

  • Stop it Laurie. It’s only mandated by the state because the unions demanded the system be set up that way.

    If we vote down the budget twice, then the budget will be the same as last year. Any programs shut down will be becuase the money is going to be used to pad teachers pensions.

  • EXACTLY ..WE ARE COMING IN BELOW THE 4% …YOU ARE CORRECT…I DID NOT EXPLAIN MYSELF ..
    THANKS

  • I realize the meetings are publicized on the school website, but it would be helpful it the Times/Review would post a notification on it’s own website and Facebook page the day or two BEFORE. We all have busy lives, and sometimes multiple jobs, I found out about the mtg when I saw on Facebook that it had already taken place.

  • CORRECT THEY STILL GET THEIR STEPS…CHECK THE AGENDA..EVERY MEETING TEACHERS ARE ON THERE BEING APPROVED

  • There is not a welcoming tone during these meetings. Nobody wants to step forward an speak when treated in a dismissive and disdainful fashion. But—folks speak in other ways—with their votes!

  • This Administration speaks only with Respect.The last Administration was Demanding and Rude
    That is not seen here and I can assure the community they will never see that with Carney.

  • Whether the tone is welcoming or not, people need to attend and say what needs to be said. That is why i attend all the bond meetings. What I saw is not welcome and I don’t care, i will continue to beat the drum as one of the few “civilians” in attendance.

  • Very strange I guess you had no questions..I recorded the entire thing and no questions were asked.So If your beating the drum Please ask some questions…..It would be welcomed..after all I have been beating that drum for over 11 years and I can name the people who helped beat that drum ..3 of us..so come on #4 join the crowd.

  • Fabulous Photo! Congratulations Brette

  • An incredible photo. And did you also know that geese do not normally migrate at night! Another rare capture! An amazing credit for a freshman student in high schoool!
