learned today that we may not get our contracts for next year until mid May instead of mid March. This will add a lot of stress on teachers, parapros, and other staff as far as job sucurity goes. This has been a rough year here in Georgia...6 unpaid fourlough days which really affected the preplanning days which were cut from a week to three days. Some of the ways the school board is looking to cut the budget is to reduce Kindergarten to return to half day classes, reduced special needs PreK, and autism along with deaf education. I feel the stress in my building rise each day. Tomorrow is the faculty meeting and it should be interesting because of course at this point we have no firm answers. At least I am not eating from stress.
