It could be worse.
Take some time to look at the school superintendent’s budget presentation and the preliminary budget summary that were given to the school board last night. I’m not convinced it’s all needed, but it’s a solid beginning for what might prove a difficult fight to get adequate funding for our schools.
I appreciate that the school administration posted the documents today, giving us all access to the broad outlines of what’s on the table in this $122.1 million proposal. I hope they follow that up by posting online the detailed budget that we also need in order to take an intelligent look at the plan.
The one thing that leaped out at me immediately was a $190,000 request for school security enhancements. What’s that all about?
