Monday's meeting was fairly benign. The only potential budget cut that gave me agita was a $226k reduction to our IT spending. If we are already lagging behind other districts in technology, then we are not properly preparing our students for the future. Technology education is every bit as important today as is English, Math, Science, History, etc. These reductions, combined with the significant technology reductions made last year, will result in us being significantly off the path of our original technology improvement plan which was approved by the Board in 2006.
Have I mentioned recently how much I hate this current economic situation?
