"It's just really to preserve flexibility for the 'what-ifs,' but I don't THINK there's any intent to deviate from these priorities," Blakely said.

The "what ifs" are this district's problem.

What if they give the Superintendent another undeserved giant raise? (14% last June) Just to name one "what if".

Yes, the language in the Measure assures us that it won't go towards salaries, but it can free up other funds to be misused. This board and district have used poor judgment in the past with funds and then they just keep on asking for more. No lessons learned.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
