This is a reminder for you to vote on the proposed school budget this coming Tuesday, May 15th.
We are asking you to VOTE NO.
Remember, just because your school district is only proposing a 2% increase over last years budget does not mean that your actual percentage rate increase wont be double, or even triple that proposed rate. Their proposed increase does NOT take into consideration "exempt" items, like teacher raises, medical benefits, and unfunded retirement costs. Those costs are NOT included in your school's proposed budget. THEY ARE IN ADDITION TO IT. Don’t be fooled... 2% does not mean 2% !!
