I have reduced the original length of the budget workshop from 90 minutes to a video of a little over 15 minutes. The highlights of the meeting are this:
1. The BOE wants a $1M to $1.5M increase over this year
2. They have no idea where teh $657K is despite what the audit report says
3. Test scores are an abomination and they want more money
4. Every other department wants more money and the BoF has no idea how to balance the competing claims of the various departments
Left unsaid is how they are going to use the extra money, if they get it, to fix the test scores.
