Why were they not implemented?

No doubt, raises were earned and well deserved, but not at the expense of personnel cuts!  As for the leadership piece the MVEA, Administrative teams, and school board should be active members with the politicians who continually pass legislation through mandates that remain unfunded but are an expectation.  Paying for these mandates through the general fund can only go on for so long!

When will somebody step up and say, “enough is enough”?
