California's state budget is a disaster, but with the exception of pay freezes, cutting the number of school site vice principals, and dropping most school busing, our district hasn't fallen over a cliff.
Secret word leaking out of the district office, though, tells us this tale: for the rest of this school year, things won't change much and there will be no furlough days. Next year, though, will be a bloodbath. There will be smiting with fiery swords. Ten furlough days is what I've heard is being discussed, and who knows what other cuts are in the offing.
We can only keep our head in the sand for so long, I guess.
