Lost our appeal with OUSD. So our budget next year will be $110,000-125,000 less than this year’s. Rosette’s budget is significantly less next year. She would like us to guarantee $35,000 to cover the stip.sub (Miss Everman). She is needed to pitch in and cover while teachers take breaks, have a planning period, etc.
Q: What would Rosette rather cut?
A: Not sure, but Rosette is very much thinking of the stip sub as a need, not a want. This is replacing the $7,000-10,000 that we would chip in to cover subs in the past.
---When discussing whether or not to fund this, we need to examine how the stip sub values next to MOSAIC or art that could be cut instead.---
This is Rosette’s number one priority.
Q: Will this be a permanent part of the budget?
A: Maybe. Or not. The OUSD budget is always in flux.
Q: Is it possible to combine the stip sub with another role that we already pay for?
A: This is what has happened with Ms Monroe-she is the prep teacher and has been second step and is now technology. But her competing duties cause her prep teacher status to be challenging.
Juliana has written a letter today to see if there are any other avenues to appeal.
