If you compare the 2016-17 column on page 32 in this budget to the 2016-17 column on page 32 of last year's budget - you'll find the numbers are different for 2016-17.
The difference being all those non-budgeted heads they've added to the payroll and failed to disclose to you in this or any other school budget they've ever put out. Don't think this is a tad bit deceptive and misleading and can and has led to large additions to the payroll, then go back and look at prior posts in this blog on this Staffing 'Shell Game' and see how many non-budgeted heads they've added to the payroll over the years and never told you about in their budgets.
Last I looked back at this stuff was the School Budget for 2015-16 and here's what it was:
And you can add another 5.5 non-budgeted heads hidden in this School Budget for 2017-18.
Someone really has to step up over there and make the necessary disclosures at monthly meetings about these non-budgeted additions to the payroll.
So, just another in a long-line of Bloated 'Pots of Money' that should get a Big No from the Board of Mythomania ..aka Board of Hoarders ..aka Board of EDems when they vote on May 3, 2017. Wait, what am I thinking? It's their budget they've already got approved by the County Super.
Now, let's see who on the Board has the courage on May 3rd to take a stand against these constantly Bloated and Out-of-Control $pending Pots of Money and vote NO.
Even if the board is looking at this budget with their usual eyes wide-shut, they still can't miss what's wrong with it. Here's their budget, see for yourself:
Haven't watched the video of last night's Action Meeting but as I understand it Paul Distefano was selected to fill the vacant board seat.
You can go to the April 18th post and run Your assessed home value and see what this School Budget for 2017-18 means to Your pocket book.
Anyhoo, at least we're comforted in the knowledge that the ratables went up so the board could squeeze some more $pending into this budget and Not let it benefit You.
