What you must know before you vote

 1)   Education law does not require Boards of Education to be accurate in their estimations or to

        use factual information because it is available.

 2)    A School budget is this year's guess  based on last year's guess, often without actual

        cost being considered.  Most budgets are under spent (over taxed) by millions

 3)    Reserves are under spent (over taxed) millions held by Districts to improve balance sheet  

 4)   The difference between an adopted and contingent budget is the difference between an

        open checkbook and limited funds. An adopted budget can be changed after the voters

        approved the budget for unforeseen circumstances such as a new union contract signed

        a day after the voters approved the budget.  A Contingent budget caps spending.
