And Now, the Dallas Independent School District's "Budget Reduction Plan Version 3.0"
Of course, most of the reductions made so far come from the number of full-timers who've accepted the district's adios offer. Says the district, 750 people -- all but 34 of whom are on-campus personnel -- have enrolled in DISD's "resignation" program. But even with 604 vacant positions left unfilled, the district still needs to reduce payroll by 1,127 people -- including, in large part, teaching assistants, monitors, clerks, custodians and parking lot attendants.
"And these are important positions and important people in the life of a school district," says Jon Dahlander, DISD spokesman. "Valued people." But he also reminds: The current proposal calls for eliminating 312 non-campus staffers.
But if you'll notice: On Page 17, because so many teachers and principals took the buyout, the district now needs to add back 27 teachers and 16 in "professional support," which would include principals.
The revised budget presentation also breaks down the dollars spent per student per school. It follows in full after the jump. Be sure to leave an apple. budgetpresentation3
