Budget issues top WCCS agenda

March 3, 2011

COLUMBIA CITY — Inclement weather Feb. 21 created a bottleneck of issues that will be addressed Monday when the Whitley County Consolidated School Corporation’s Board of School Trustees meets in regular session.
Snowfall and freezing temperatures caused the corporation to cancel its Feb. 21 meeting — a session that promised to be heavily attended as staff and faculty corporation-wide await recommendations and decisions regarding the upcoming budget.
“I would expect there will be several people attending,” said Anthony Zickgraf, the corporation’s business manager.
At its regular meeting Feb. 7, Superintendent Dr. Patricia O’Connor supplied the board with a large number of potential “budget-saving” measures in order to combat a steady decline in the school system’s general fund.
Since that meeting, O’Connor has adjusted the recommendations, which will be presented to the board Monday.
“It’s a painful process right now,” Zickgraf said.
Among action items scheduled to go in front of the board, according to Zickgraf, the panel will vote on a new wheelchair lift for the high school, student handbooks, all-day kindergarten and tuition charges for pre-schoolers.
Zickgraf also said there will be some new equipment purchases for the school corporation’s Eagle Tech school that will be decided.
The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. Monday in the Marshall Community Center on North Walnut Street.

how about getting rid of some of the administration people at Northern Heights and the middle school for starters. last time i was in the middle school there were 4 who didnt do anything for over an hour besides watching television. im tired of paying for them. and for teachers who think they are better than the people paying them.
