How Does Staffing Compare from Year to Year?

The proposed 05-06 budget distributed on May 3, 2005 projects 70 less FTE for the next year. Once again, the comparison raises questions:

  • General Administration: 5 FTE increase
  • Elementary Education: no change in FTEs (so why such a big hit to elementary specials? - still not explained and continues to appear punitive in light of no planning over the past year - especially punitive to elementary music education, embarassing)
  • Secondary Education: 28 FTE cut
  • Business Services: 30FTE cut in non-food services? - but is the work model changing, because their budget numbers did not go down that much and in fact dollars increased for next year?
Questions, questions and more questions that could be addressed in a straightforward manner with a presentation to the School Board. What is this board waiting for?
