Every single position mentioned being cut, impacts our kids. They all have daily contact with the students. While I understand certain funds are meant for certain things, building maintenance and new trucks. It hurts to see that our kids will suffer these cuts while the district continues to operate as business as usual.

Many of these people ( they are people, not FTE’s) could probably keep their livelihoods by sending a “notice of lay-off” to a few egregiously overpaid board members.

BOE members are paid a small stipend, I think $400/mo. The BOE did vote on increasing the outgoing superintendent, and district admin personnel the same increase as the teachers got. They were already very well paid so their actual dollar increase was quite a bit and the BOE knew full well that Covid cuts were going to be made. The new superintendent is going to make north of $350K, our Governor makes about 1/2 of that. I wish the new super well, he has a challenging road ahead.

The board does not earn the $400 month the rubber stamp they have given the administration is not doing their jobs. They are our voices yet they are silent and ignore the communities concerns. Every vote on an issue is unanimous in agreement with the administration be it raises or why reports from the administration are in direct contradiction from reports from teachers and students. They continue to hide behind closed session meetings for discussion on the response to the virus this is direct violation of the Brown act. The response to the virus is not a legal, security or personnel matter therefore it needs to be discussed in open session.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
