It's about time someone asked for detailed information on WRSD budgets.
Fellow Holdenites, have you ever seen how the City of Worcester posts all employees salaries including wages, OT ... Why is it wrong to know where our tax dollar are going? I have children in the district schools and I would still like to know in detail how my dollars are being spent. The district demands funding but wont be clear on how they line item budget or spend. They love to compare themselves to Westboro for the academic achievements. Westboro doesnt own the school buildings the school district does. When WRSD compares themselves to other districts in how little they spent, does WRSD include the portion of building costs that the towns incur? Maybe they do make a true comparison of educational dollars spent? It cant hurt to have that level of information. As for the copy costs, maybe WRSD administration should email Staples and have their Copy Center give a quote to copy/scan the documents.
Recently the plow contract was given to an out of town contractor. Verbal contract, competitor prices given out? Hopefully that works out well but the process doesnt sound like any Bid I've ever heard of.
Our new Superintendent will need all the help he can get. View Comment
