Just happened to read the new ETEA President's Message here and it caught my attention. He's talking about welcoming 88 new staff members to their association. Now, maybe it's me but last I remembered the $212.3 million School Budget for 2012-13 had increases for only 10 positions - 8 teachers, 1 guidance counselor and 1 assistant principal. Hmm.. 10 - 88 - probably worthy of some explanation.
You remember this piece of staffing by the Board over the years discussed and shown in a previous post:
budget for the 2012-13 school year (going from 1,926 to 1,936 total staff- page 36)- don't you think someone should be telling us how the ETEA added 88 new staff members to their association this year??
Geez, can somebody over there on Mythomania Lane start paying attention to the changes in staffing and reporting it out to the residents? Not for nothing but such changes from the 2012-13 budget should have a reconciliation and explanation before we get to the 2013-14 budget and find out we added some more unbudgeted heads in 2012-13 to add to the existing 391 unbudgeted heads.
