BOE referendum a month away questions remain

The threatened 6.5 million referendum is scheduled to take place January 26th. The district removed the PowerPoint presentation from the front page of its website. First, they included special ed busing which is mandatory together with non mandated courtesy busing. That inclusion upped the numbers falsely.  Second how can they not have an exact number to put on the referendum?  A budget should be down to an exact number. Third, the number given of a 9.5 shortfall in the budget does not make any sense nor will a referendum fix it. One example, how did the state monitor issue raises when there clearly was no money for it. The raise came after the budget was passed! Is that why there is a shortfall? Well don't blame that on courtesy bussing the easy scapegoat that's on the monitor.

  1. Everybody knows the referendum will be voted down and will not pass . So the question is what happens next . When will parents be notified that their busing is stopped ? ? What happens to routes that have both courtesy and non courtesy ? Will they stop until they are rebid ? Will such rebidding of the routes ,once again increase the cost so there wont be such a big savings even if we stop courtesy busing ?

  5. The State signed an agreement that busing would continue this year regardless of the cost. How could somebody know that they can just rip up a signed agreement ?
