Acting Superintendent Leroy Nunery and Chief Financial Officer Michael Masch, also announced a significant reduction in school nursing services. By January 1, 2012 schools will know what has been cut with the new budget cuts. So by them doing the budget cuts they plain to save 10 million dollars but at the same time they are trying to do something that will harm something else. It’s no winning here because if they keep the nurses them they are losing money but if they fire the nurses then they are losing people that are needed in the school the most if something goes wrong. Now its bad enough that we don’t have full time nurses but to get rid of them all together are just going to harm the school district really.
I think that if you really want to make a difference then you need to be at one or more of these meetings that they are having disusing budget cuts on school nurses and teachers and so much more.
