Is there an award for running a fiscally prudent operation, and operation which doesn't ask the taxpayers to pay the the legal maximum allowable tax bill every year, even when enrollment is decreasing? Answer: Nope. Is there an award for proper management of long term debt? Answer: Nope.

So we won an award for how well we report the budget, terrific! Congratulations. But the numbers in that budget are chilling. It appears the school district is planning on increasing it's revenue form local sources (read 'property taxes') by 25% over the next 5 years. !!!!
