A community member asked me recently why I place so much emphasis on the budget. The exact words were, "I think that's all you ever talk about." I guess I have to plead guilty to keeping the budget as a front burner issue. When I think about the discussions I have about our schools with parents, staff, students and community members, most of these discussions revolve around smaller class sizes, additional academic and extracurricular programs, competitive compensation, materials and supplies, technology and additional staff in areas such as nursing, maintenance, classroom assistants and clerical. All of these are areas ...
