Community forum tonight on fate of Cortland, Virgil schools

For the owner of a home assessed at $150,000, which is about the average for the district, the tax bill would increase by about $104, going from the current $4,338.89 to $4,443.02.

The award was named after Dolores Garcia, a trustee on the El Dorado Union High School District Board from 1975 through 1983 and the El Dorado County Board of Education from 1996 until her passing in 2012. "We are trying to give them as much comprehensive information as we can", Priddy said.

Employee salaries and benefits make up the biggest part of the proposed budget, coming in at more than $89 million. Few school districts embark on a project of major scope without facing a degree of opposition along the way. There are federal funds in the works as well, he said.

"We're pretty pleased (with the budget)".

If the two schools were to be closed, the district could end up reorganizing its elementary education structure into a "grade-center configuration". "We generate $10 million more, they send us $10 million less".

"Just because we have a public meeting, I feel like we haven't necessarily engaged with the public", said trustee Ryan Land. The meet and greet with Hamby is the final showcase for Nelson County Schools prior to selection of the district's new superintendent.

About 72 percent of the budget is funded through state aid. Last year, the board touted having been well below the cap for five years in a row.

Buying after a big move to the upside may mean that the investor is essentially paying too much for the stock at those levels. Staying on top of longer-term price action may help provide investors with a wider scope of reference when examining a stock.

That left board member Nicholas Braccio wondering, "What got us here?" to this year's larger increase.

In December, parents objected to a proposal that would have had special education students start middle school one year early. He noted that there is a lot of residential space in the area that could be developed for housing, which opens up the possibility of unexpected enrollment growth. "The kids that are now in the middle school program are getting older, and we need to create a high school program".

Decreased enrollment will bring with it a decrease in the number of teachers needed, he said. Beatty, Auerbach, and Rick Dumont all said that they thought the district's needs could be met with $105 million in spending.

District 200 pays about $61,900 of the officer's contract.

Other sponsorships are also being sought, so long as the sponsors are not direct competitors of primary sponsor Grand View Health, he said.

Near-ubiquitous connectivity in schools has "truly changed the landscape of what students are learning and what teachers are teaching", says Darryl Adams, the retired superintendent of Coachella Valley Unified School District and honoree of the CoSN/EdScoop EdTech Time Capsule, in an interview with EdScoop TV.

School Board member Jill Turgeon (Blue Ridge) said what has happened in Monroe's transition has shined a light on the need for better communication between administrators in the central office and teachers. She said school consolidation is also something that sparked an interest in running.
