WOW! Though it is not the blog topic I said I would share in my next post, this was too good to not share. The senate democrats released their budget today and it is good news for schools. NO CUTS! This sets up negotiations with the governor and the house who did make cuts and also made the decision in 2013 to reduce levy equalization from 14% to 12% and the levy lid by 4%. Together these cuts would be about $2.3 million for our school system. For this reason and for standing up for public education we owe our Senators a big THANK YOU!
