Wow….Are you kidding me?  If the school board approves this they should be recalled!  Particularly when they had a chance to make budget cuts by closing a school and going to the 4 day week.  All the rhetoric about not affecting kids has gone right out the window.  This will affect kids!

The leaders of the teachers union should RESIGN immediately!  How dare they propose and ratify a negotiations contract that provides an increase to SOME employees while others are being cut.

Way to be in it all together.  Should really promote a great environment for morale!  What administrators would support these cuts?  The cold day in Hell has arrived!

See here we go “money has been set aside for district employees” Lets have less teachers teaching and more admin getting raises. What a bunch of bull!!! Replace the Superintendent and his staff of overpaid Principals in this School District. Maybe just maybe things would get better because lets face it, it is still one of the low scoring districts in this state. Let Schultz and the principals take a pay cut to help keep teachers and let them earn bonuses based on the how the schools do to improve the scores. $103,000.00 a year for a H.S.Principal, way, way overpaid for what they are accomplishing especially for schools like Grand Mesa Middle School and Central High School…...

The overpaid assistant Principals should be ousted. When I went to school it was one Principal, one assistant principal, 1 office secretary, and 1 school nurse. Also there were 2 guidance counselors per Middle and High Schools. And my class graduated 485 Seniors. My High School secretary didn’t have computers and she handled it just fine. Now we have 2-3 per school and they use computers with a less amount of students. Waste of money there.. At least when I graduated we could read, write and we knew math. More than I can say about some of these kids that are graduating today…


They needed to close one Grade School and go to a 4 day work week.  That is what most of the people wanted and expressed at meetings that I knew about.  WHY are they now cutting positions? More people out of work, more homes will be foreclosed on and the tax base will go down.  Next year we will face the same problems.  Cut jobs people move away and the money we get from the State is cut.  We will be back to the same place next year.

I agree 100% with you Stacey….
