Although the teachers "stepped up last year", a pay freeze would be better than the loss of jobs. Wouldn't it? That's what many employers are asking to SAVE jobs, and these employees are stepping up by obliging. Why shouldn't SCCS do the same. Tax payers are at the breaking point in this community. People are being forced away simply because we can't afford to live in this area.

I'am really sick of hearing we can't cut this or that....yes you can and should be!!!! It is time to start cutting admistration jobs really is Mrs. Gowan still needed there wil an inflated salary??? I for one do not want to pay more in taxes we are taxed to death. Start cutting it is your job and service to the community. I have do not have a fancy degree but I surely could go up and cut alot of wasted positions. Wake up this is why people and businesses are leaving this community. We pay all theses people alot of money and half do not even live in this town to give back to the place that is feeding their families while the local families are "starving". Of coarse their all gonna say we can't cut for fear of hurting someones feelings grow a set and startb doing it.... I for one will move out of this area if it continues!!

"The teachers really stepped up last year. It would be really hard to have to do it again,"

I'm curious about the basis for that comment, what did the teachers do last year?

"Ljiljanich explained most of the funding lost goes to mandated teachers' salaries." Teachers' salaries are NOT mandated. Public employee contracts are NOT mandated. They are negotiated. And as long as the only thing to be negotiated is how much more money will the teachers receive, the contract will never be fair to students, parents, taxpayers or teachers. We need a charter school where good teachers can teach and students can learn.

doubleringer54,

When I read that I assumed that they were refuring to positions such as ESL teachers which are mandated by the State and/or Federal government.
