Testimony to the Board of Education on Operating Budget

Blair is a massive school serving a high-need population, and so it has commensurately big needs. For eight years now, the visionary budget we deserve has been on hold as we’ve slogged our way through grim financial reality. We need you — our school board and leadership — to take the lead in advocating for the restoration of our system’s budget. There’s no other way to rein in class size and fund the programs that a changing county needs if it is to preserve the social contract bringing young families here generation after generation.
