From the outside looking in it appears that the district is doing a wonderful job preparing these young adults for the next chapter in there lives. I hope to continue this tradition.
The district will continue to have budget issues that will always be at the forefront of the boards decision process. The first process is to evaluate the non core curriculum and make adjustments that least effect the students. The budgets is mostly made up of salary and benefits that would have to be reduced as a last resort. I support a tax increase as a last resort and believe in the process of asking the voters for there opinion and carrying out their wishes.
I believe that each situation is different and should be evaluated on it own merit. Having an open mind in the decision making process in most valuable when working on a board with seven opinions as to addressing issues.
The state is moving towards goal related evaluations and compensation for hard work. I believe in this type of pay and benefits. The issue that needs be be addressed is how to equally evaluate teachers, staff, and administrators without bias.
No, the benefits that an administrator receives upon retirement should be based on actual work history and salary. This should not be inflated to bypass the intent of the systemCopyright © 2013 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
