BUDGET AX TO COME DOWN FOR SOME IN SNOHOMISH SCHOOL DISTRICT
January 25, 2011



(SNOHOMISH, WA) -- Come the first of March four custodians, several maintenance workers and a secretary will be laid off by the Snohomish School District in a budget ritual now being played out in cashed strapped districts, cities and towns across America as part of the ongoing effects of the worst economic times since the Great Depression.

Other cuts in the district will take place immediately.

The district was forced to make the reductions in force to adjust for the reduction in funding from the state, which has it’s own monumental cash problems.

(See today’s feature story on front page of the Chronicle about state owned banks being proposed by some as a way for state’s to avoid further budget nightmares when the national economy goes south).

There may be more cuts down the road as the district moves to trim it’s annual budget by some $676,000.

The Snohomish School Board last week approved seven of 12 proposed layoffs and and eliminating four positions as well as approving five furlough days in the summer for some employees.

WHERE’S THE MONEY?

Earlier this month the League of Education Voters gave Washington State a C-minus average for the way it educates students, adding the state needs a stronger commitment to adequately pay for education in Washington and improve the quality of the state's education system.

"Our state is going backward in our commitment to kids and public education," said Lisa Macfarlane, co-founder of the League of Education Voters Foundation, in a statement.

Last February a King County Superior Court Judge ruled that the state of Washington is not fully paying for basic public education, which is a violation of its constitutional duty.

The lawsuit was brought by a coalition of school districts, parents and community groups. It has been appealed to the Washington Supreme Court. A ruling is expected this spring.

The report pointed out that Washington is one of nine states where the achievement gap between children of different races is growing.
