No updates until (possibly) Sunday

I am buried under a mountain of work with the school budget cut process taking place in Sauk Centre.

Just last night the Sauk Centre school board conducted a four-hour long "work session" where I recorded a 4,500-word document of notes.

As I've said before, they are cutting $300,000 from their budget to balance the books for 2013-14. It's not pretty. One board member even floated the idea of cutting cross country and wrestling from the list of offered athletic activities.

Is the four-day week model wonderful for everyone at B-B-E? To answer that honestly I'd have to say "no" (my family personally thinks it is fantastic) - but at least we're not considering the litany of cuts that Sauk Centre is facing.
