Plano school employees may not see raises but will have an increase in healthcare costs | Plano Blog

Just saw this in the Dallas Morning News. Are they seriously not going to give raises yet still insist on providing private armed guards at all the schools? Are other districts doing the same? My oldest will start Kindergarten in the fall so I don't hear much news outside of DMN since we aren't in schools yet but this has me very concerned about the future and will affect our kids.

Don't you just love our low-tax state?

Every district is fighting some financial battle, my neighbor attended a meeting with Matkins recently and says that being a finance guy, our super is pulling all strings to make things work. Perry's cuts are making it difficult for districts to make ends meet.

IMO you should be far more upset about "Robin Hood" legally stealing 200,000,000$ or whatever the number is from Plano every year so little schools across Texas can build sweet gyms and football stadiums.

I was not aware Perry had Executive Order powers. Good to know.

Robin Hood is definitely upsetting. There is so much regarding public school financing that upsets me and I really want to support it, but its going to be tied up in court or with the legislature in Austin for who knows how long. No wonder its supposedly another record year for applications to the private schools.

Plano superintendent rethinks private armed security | Dallasnews.com - News for Dallas, Texas - The Dallas Morning News

Superintendent Richard Matkin is now backing away from plans to have armed private security guards at each Plano school.
And no, there probably will be a 90% chance of no raises.

Robin Hood has been tied up and argued (and approved) by courts again since the early 80's.
