Let me get this straight. First, the school district spends 100s of thousands of dollars on new buses, using part of the supposed savings from the five-day week. before the savings were actually realized In addition, they spent additional hundreds of thousands from the state/fed grant on paying for health care premium increases, which expense no employee was asked to share in paying for. Then they proposed a raise for the teachers be granted before the state could formally freeze salaries. Now the school district is nearly $1 million short in its budget, and has approved borrowing money to cover the shortfall and pass on the borrowing costs to Lake County and other school district taxpayers. All this during a time when school system prudence, good fiscal management and sacrifice is necessary due to the state of the economy. Now, would someone please explain to me how they could let a bus go out with its equipment operation unchecked and incur any sort of fine?
