EC School District – Open and Transparent? ECT found more questions than answers about how the School District is spending your Tax dollars. Recall the majority of the annual Property Taxes you pay – goes into Education.
Last week (13MAR2014) Eagle County Public School Superintendent – Dr. Jason Glass pointed out in print (Click Here) that “we present all of our checks on the district’s website and make readily available all of our spending and other financial documents.”
So the ECT went to have a look see last week. Per Dr. Glass’s claim…the list of ECSD paid “checks” (it’s 74 pages long) for the one month of February 2014 – it can be found by (Clicking Here) If you’d like to visit Dr. Glass’s list online (Click Here)
ECT would like our Readers to leave a comment (left margin) to help us understand some of these School District (recent) Educational expenditures.
Payment in Lieu of Taxes to Arn Menconi’s SOS? For what $10,000.00 service?
A Power Cord for a PC Desktop Computer is a “generic” thing. You can buy them at the local Wal~Mart for about $3.00 ea. Why does Apple charge our District $79.00 How much does our District pay for screwdrivers?
Perhaps we should give up our day job and just sell Apple Power Cords to the District…
Dines at McDonalds…but prefers the Grand Hyatt for his lodging (where?)
A full day Private Ski Lesson at Vail Colorado costs $815.00 (Click Here) Why is the Eagle County Taxpayer – paying to teach public school students “how to ski” and take “hut trips”? Parents did that for us…when we were little. Why aren’t the kids spending more time improving their grades?
Meanwhile…back in the Classroom…does our School District need to go “out of district” to find a Math/Science teacher…qualified to perform (Coaching duties?)
Please leave a comment here at the ECT if you know (just who?) is keeping any eye on our School District’s monthly expenses. Let the ECT know what you’ve found in their 79 pages of Expenses for the one month – February 2014.
