Plus, she addressed a claim that all sports but mainstream sports will be cut. “This was a topic of discussion at a public board meeting in July, as we look at the areas where the budget could be trimmed without cutting instructional staff,” she said, but pointed out that no other discussions have occurred since, “and again, we will involve parents, students and community, to come up with solutions.” Items discussed at the July meeting included putting a freeze on using anymore money from the 2005 override for textbooks and instead focusing on technology; look at the $161,000 vocation contract has to see if any money could be saved there; possible cuts to cocurricular activities, which could save $478,000; furloughs for administration; increasing classroom sizes; and cuts to bussing for students, with the exception of special needs students who are required by law to have access to a bus, a savings of $680,000. In regards to the possibility of there being no bussing in RE-1, DeLay said the district is continuing to talk about the in-town bus routes, primarily because of bus driver shortages, but there has been no discussion of bussing cessation as a district-wide strategy. If there are significant changes that the district wants to look at related to the bussing system, there will be community meetings. DeLay also mentioned there has been no discussion of discontinuing the bus that meets parents at Cedar Creek. Another claim that has been heard is that all special education students will be mainstreamed into the general classroom, cutting four to six special education teachers across the district and the remaining special education teachers will act as case managers. “This would be illegal; the district will not be able to use this strategy,” DeLay said. Lastly, she addressed a claim that there will be a freeze on workbooks, paper and other teaching supplies and teachers will have to make due. DeLay explained that she is not convinced that the worksheets are effective or research based, and has had an issue with this since she started. She noted the kindergarten team at Ayres recognized this as not best practice, and stopped sending “packets” of worksheets home this year, and the response from parents has been very positive.
