So, how exactly will taxpayers SEE the savings if the operating referendum continues and the amount is increased with a new formula?

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for investing in our students, but don't try to dress up a story with B.S.

The $212 in Location Equity Revenue will come off of the $690, so the total taxpayer approved levy will be $478. Also, the board refinanced the bond on the high school which will go into effect this year and save the Marshall taxpayers $285,000 per year for many years.

Yes, I read that too, but with words like "qualifies" and "is eligible for" it isn't exactly a guarantee.

I agree farmkid, there are no guarantees however you must admit, Marshall School District Administrators deserve a great deal of credit. Over the past several years funding for schools has been unpredictable to say the least. Even as Legislators made school budgeting very difficult, our Administrators have put the District in a strong financial position. Imagine how great our school system could become if Administrators spent less time fretting over financing and more time concentrating on improving the quality of education.

As I remember, in mid-May, the headlines read "Tough Budget Choices For MPS" or something like that. Then, toward the end of June, there was a write-up about MPS purchasing some property. Now, (somehow) everything is just hunky-dory. What the*****is going on at MPS and why isn't the Independent asking this very same question???

I just don't buy into the headlines of this paper.

I think MPS does not know their head from their feet. Henceforth, the contradicting articles. One minute things are bad, then they are good..I agree with farmkid...its all over the place. However, until we get new leadership the focus on the kids will not exist. Willert is a person who needs to feed his ego not the brains of our kids. Have seen this first hand!
