"the board will determine what it needs to fund before it decides what it needs to cut.

“It’s a new way of looking at the budget,” said board Vice President John Lee Evans. “We are starting at the bottom and asking, ‘What is essential? What do want need to fund?’ We are not starting at the top and subtracting until we balance the budget.”"


"The school board is encouraging parents and residents to contact their state representatives to demand that education funding be given top priority."
