Are they being an example by cutting something that they get personally? Maybe they should cut the retirement bonuses they each get. If they each get $40,000 in a retirement bonus, that would add up to $160,000 in costs for the District. What programs can be saved for $160,000?
If they each get lifetime health care at the district expense; let's use a conservative number of $600 per month, or $7200 per year times 4 administrators, and they get this benefit/bonus for an average of 7 years. That cost to the district would be $201,000. Those two figures add up to $361,000. Now what programs can be saved with that money?
How much did the assistant superintendent of business, who just retired get in retirement benefits/bonuses? Board members we voted each of you in office to protect our kids. Is cutting programs so that high paid administrators can live well in retirement a good trade? PUSD board, haven't you listened to President Obama's speeches on CEO's, maybe you should take the President's lead. Board members you want this community to support a parcel tax? Why? So that money can be moved around from one district pot to another, so that these high retirement benefits/bonuses can stay in place?
