  13. REALITY We have a continuing decline in enrollment and a continual decline in revenues/student. No one wants to close elementary school. Massive cuts are going to occur. Social promotion is fundamentally flawed. The children of Oakridge deserve a well-rounded education that allows them to explore and achieve to their potential. Does advancing students because they have had a birthday accomplish that goal?

  14. Next Budget Work Session is February 16th, 2011 at 6:00 in the District Board Room
