"promises to try to protect programs-- despite a budget $137 million less than what the Board of Education requested. He says the school system will work to avoid furloughs."
Is it required that the cuts listed on the union/PTA flyer would happen if $137 million was cut from the MCPS proposed budget? No.
Could $137 million be cut from the MCPS proposed budget without impacting classrooms? Yes.
Is anyone looking closely at the MCPS budget and evaluating options in light of the dire financial situation our county finds itself in?
What could be trimmed without impacting the educational experience for our students?
Correction to flyer: Please note that the administrator's union is actually the Montgomery County
Association of Administrative and Supervisory Personnel (MCAASP).
