Budget Meeting

January 6, 2007

In the mean time they held a budget meeting Saturday morning to discuss how they will spend the money over the next year. Near the top of their list: teacher's salaries

“We have to maintain competitiveness with our neighboring school divisions so that's a critical one. The other thing is to make sure that we pay our teachers fair as well as enough, so that everybody has a living wage,” said Board Chair, Dr. Albert Edwards.

Edwards said he would describe last year as a success.

At today's meeting, other issues discussed were improving SOL scores and working towards all city schools becoming accredited.
