Though he is hesitant to commit to a number, Lodi Unified School District's Doug Barge said anticipated federal stimulus funds could save a number of school district employees that have already received pink slips.

This news came following the school board's decision Tuesday to lay off another handful of part-time classified employees, bringing the total number of layoffs to about 424 districtwide.

    If I were all of you, I would have a look at the discretionary spending accounts. Seems the Bear Creek Principal has enough to take a tour of the Historic Black Colleges this summer with his friends but does not have enough money for Paper and Toner for the printers at the school. I heard he is looking for additional people to "babysit" the children/students of his friends he is planning on taking with him. Didn't the district tell him his little vacation was inappropriate at this time? Well I guess he said "F-U" to Mr. Barge - or maybe Barge has no clue!

    Lou - LUSD is operating at a 12% Overhead. Normally a school of this size operates at 5-6%. Needless to say, no matter how they massage the numbers, there are too many Chiefs and not enough Indians. You need to shake the School Board up at the next opportunity. Our Kids are the ones suffering for those useless jobs. LodiJoe - Good comment. Your point is true and well taken by me and a lot of other people here in Lodi. But nobody is listening here. We need to be at the Meetings - like the School Board meeting last night.

    Maybe if they get rid of the Director of Toilet Paper for the boys restrooms, the Director of Paper Towels for the girls restrooms, the Director of Lunch Trays, the Director of Blowing up Playground Balls and all the other "directors' that make fat salaries and do little to enrich LUSD quality...Then, perhaps, we might not have to release teachers who DO make a difference.
