What they don't tell you is that this "save" was already wasted when the administration annexed the Shanahan library. And, you will never see this "cut" as a reduction to the district's expenditure line or as a reduction in your property tax rate. It's only a paper cut.
Finally, recognize that Brown has total contempt for the taxpayer when he states this innane nonsense, "This is yet another example of district administration and staff members working together to meet the board’s goal of providing a high quality education for students at a more reasonable cost to taxpayers."
Is Brown for real?
* OLENTANGY CONTINUES STAFFING PATTERN CHANGES TO SAVE $1 MILLION OVER NEXT FIVE YEARS
During Tuesday’s Board of Education meeting, Interim Superintendent Jeff Brown announced the latest adjustment to staffing levels that is expected to save the district more than $1 million over the next five years. Over the past several years, Olentangy Local Schools has realized more than $6.4 million in savings by adjusting staffing levels as the district looks for more efficient ways to facilitate maximum learning for every student.
Previously each elementary school included a part-time library aide position. However in recent years, the district has not created these positions when new schools opened and filled this need with parent volunteers. The pilot programs were successful and the district will implement this process on a district wide basis beginning with the 2009-10 school year.
Those people who were previously filling this need in a paid position have been re-assigned to already open aide position in another capacity. This way the district is still employing quality people to meet the needs of students, but finding new ways to deliver services. “This is yet another example of district administration and staff members working together to meet the board’s goal of providing a high quality education for students at a more reasonable cost to taxpayers,” said Brown.
