Hiring of coach doesn't affect this year's budget

Wednesday, December 3, 2003

This is regarding the Speak Out comment made by a teacher in the Scott City School District. The comment was made that the Scott City district couldn't afford 10 teacher aides but could afford a new football coach for the 2004-05 school year. The minutes from the school board meeting explain that teachers with limited class sizes had the option to pick between teacher aides or a salary increase. The football coach's salary will come from the 2004-05 school year budget and in no way, shape or form affects the 2003-04 budget.
