DCPS 14 million in the hole to pay for the cabinet

Now it was pointed out t me that we have 5 percent of our budget plus ten million in reserves and friends that is a healthy amount. I could argue we should be spending some of that money on our some unmet needs, so don’t worry the repo man isn’t going to come in the middle of the night and take the school board building away.

That being said, being so far in the hole on a single line item is humdinger and it is unsustainable unless there is a budget increase from Tallahassee to keep dipping into reserves to pay salaries. I also want to remind you we cut the budget by 1 percent this year and it looks like we didn’t budget for the cabinet at all when making our original budget and how is that possible?.

Becki Couch warned us of some dangerous and unusual budget practices last fall. I just hope they don’t come back to bite us.
