The Journal News has more school district propaganda up today, courtesy of our old pal Aman Ali. It's Richard Organiciak and John Quinn making the same old tired arguments they have been making for the past month at budget meetings, arguments that even the normally docile school board has rejected.
The only news in the piece is Organisciak's assertion that all salaries will go up and no staff will be let go.
"Everything is tied into ongoing negotiations right now," Organisciak said. "We're negotiating all our contracts with the board and our teachers as a part of a big package. You can't make changes to one without making changes to the other, and vice versa."
The district is working on renewing a contract with its teachers union set to expire in June. Organisciak said the district doesn't anticipate implementing any salary freezes or layoffs next year.
My favorite line is from John Quinn.
