The meet and greet with Hamby is the final showcase for Nelson County Schools prior to selection of the district's new superintendent.

The award was named after Dolores Garcia, a trustee on the El Dorado Union High School District Board from 1975 through 1983 and the El Dorado County Board of Education from 1996 until her passing in 2012.

The budget is almost flat, decreasing by 0.17 percent.

Rogers said even though district voters have demonstrated a willingness to pay for public education with their tax money by voting for bond packages, an increase in taxes collected doesn't translate to an increase in revenue. He said the $106.5 million bond that failed past year was one of the reasons he made a decision to run for office.

Most of the job cuts are through attrition, according to Goewey.

Part of the reason for 0.14 percent increase in the administrative budget is the addition of a full-time superintendent and loss of the shared superintendent agreement with Barker Central School District, officials said. "The kids that are now in the middle school program are getting older, and we need to create a high school program".

"It worked brilliantly", Adams says of Wi-Fi on Wheels, which put wireless access points on district school buses and then parked the buses where students lived.

The Troy City Board of Education said on its website that during a special meeting Monday morning, the Board approved a four-year contract to employ Chris Piper as their next Superintendent, effective August 1, 2018. She is not exactly sure what that would entail.

In advance of the meeting, the school board received a funding grid highlighting what each level of funding would translate into in terms of educational space for the building.

"Right now we are have signage up for the ten ways to stop food waste in the servery as ways the students can help conserve their food waste and also myself and my staff speaking with the students, making announcements as they are coming thru the servery just to be conscious of just how much they are taking and how much they are throwing away and of course if they are not going to eat it maybe there is someone who can", Kooyers said.

About 72 percent of the budget is funded through state aid. The district is set to receive almost $700,000 more in state Foundation Aid. Miscellaneous revenues, including $420,000 worth of fund balance, make up the rest.

Dolores Garcia Memorial Spirit of Boardsmanship: Tom Griffin, Pollock Pines Elementary School District, was presented the award for his exemplary leadership, service, and advocacy on behalf of district students, educators and families.

The two have also clashed on a proposal to re-align elementary grades from two K-6 schools to one primary center covering K-3 and an intermediate center housing 4-6 and pre-K. LISD is heading into a budget crunch in the next few years, and board members have often grumbled about declining state revenue as the cause, and now it will face recapture penalties a year early after an unexpected drop in enrollment.
