    Looks like school consolidations arecnotvpannig out.
    Costs of running a school system are usually driven by wages, salaries , and benfits and about 80% or more of the overall operating budget. Wage freezes, benefit cost savings, step freeze or eliminations will go a long way to conserving staff positions. School consolidations should be based on demographics of areas and growth patterns.
    Times are tough and costs must be reduced. A 4-5% cut overall is not unreasonable. Business has been forced to do this during the past 3 years and probably for the near future until we get Washington and State Government changed.
