Spending Plan Add Backs
As many of you already know, there were several positions recommended for restoration by Superintendent Brady at the end of the Finance Committee meeting last Thursday. He talked about a possible job share in the 4th grade (the Board of Education has to approve it), two elementary positions, staffing for the Math lab, a high school Math position (to go to the middle school), a secretary for the Special Education office, and a BOCES school psychologist. It was a very long meeting and everyone was tired but I am wondering why Mr. Brady didn't mention that he has recommended the restoration of all of the modified sports and intramural programs? The cost is almost $46,000. Why would those programs have precedence over academic areas?
