Les Pritchard attended the first Advisory Budget Meeting on behalf of the Union. The essential message is that the District believes they need to lay off 3 FTE Teachers and 4 FTE Childcare workers but they need a third senior Board office staff member.
Right now there is one administrator for every 8.2 teachers in our District. This would make that ratio worse yet.
The justification is that they expect 50 fewer students, but the Board staff are too busy.
