2010-11 Budget - the Question That Needs to be Asked

Dear Sun Prairie School District...

I read daily about other school districts making massive cuts to their 2010-11 budgets. Most are freezing salaries and even cutting staff, particularly the highly paid administrators. What PERMANENT cuts have you included in your 2010-11 budget proposal?

Answer: $21,000


Your $72.3M budget contains exactly 21 THOUSAND dollars of permanent reductions?
Did you slip and fall and hit your collective heads causing amnesia regarding what happened at last year's annual elector's meeting?

The economy is still in the tank and you're still feeding the 800 lb gorilla?

Good luck with that.
