Progress on the Spending Plan
Long finance committee meeting tonight, but there was progress! Administration brought creativity, Board of Education members brought good questions and thoughtful ideas, and there were friendly exchanges about pointed topics. There is still a long way to go before a satisfactory resolution to the budget gap is resolved, but there are still those reserves...... I am wondering where the public is. They weren't at the Tuesday night Board of Education meeting and only a few were present tonight. I hope that they don't wait too long to advocate for their favorite programs because teachers and other expenses are already being added back.
