Board rejects latest NFT proposal as "too expensive"

The following statement was posted to the Board's Negotiation Website a few moments ago . . .

Meeting #30 between the Board's Negotiation Team and representatives from the NFT lasted about 30 minutes this evening.

The Board formally rejected the NFT proposal of May 31, 2011, stating the proposal was too expensive. The Board asked for additional time to prepare a counter proposal with the assistance of the newly formed Neshaminy Citizens Contract Advisory Committee. It was mutually agreed by the NFT and the Board to cancel this Thursday's (June 16th) meeting and reschedule for either the 18th or 19th of July depending on availability of the Board's council.

Why is there so much time between meetings? I understand that you need time to review the proposal and compose a counter. But, you received the NFT proposal June 1 and are not meeting again until the middle of July.

Do you really want this to drag into another school year? Why not meet amoungst yourselves and the citizen committee daily to compose a counter proposal and put the onus back on the NFT?

This is exactly what the "Back to Educating Our Kids Act" is attempting to prevent.
