School Board Cuts Suck!!!!

Our local school board announced the pretty severe budget cuts the district will have to deal with in the coming year.

details are here... no need to retype them all.

It sucks! Bad.

I really wish we weren't taking money/options/programs/employees away from our young folks education.

But... I stand behind the board completely.

We are in a situation so drastic things had to be done and from the info on the link above, I think they made some pretty wise choices in a horribly difficult situation.

As citizens, I think the best thing we can do is stand behind them, find ways with time/money or both to support the district, bear down, fight through this thing and come out stronger on the other end.

Things we can do...

1. Volunteer for programs in the school. There's lots of them. ---- Free
2. Spread the word about programs, use your facebook/email and make sure the whole world knows about the next play the drama club puts on or the next soccer game or student art display. --- Free
3. Go to the next event, game, etc... Good cheap entertainment and your dollars would go directly to helping the district.
4. Make donation to the district... yes you can if you want.

I don't care right now about laying blame for the lack of dollars... let's fix it and then learn from it...
