I guess I am missing something but what does it mean "first vote" If it passed, isn't it final? I am surprised it did pass as nothing was saved with the consolidation. I thought it would be turned down so that more cuts could be made but guess there are enough employees of the school department to get it done.
How is the tutoring obtained while they are suspended? Is the school system required to provide it?
So much for the consolidation saving money for the taxpayers. Instead of reducing the budget they just folded the money that could have been saved, back into the total to spend as they see fit.
