Sure, I'll give you a call. In the meantime, go to a meeting or two, then comment.

The source of the $80,000 figure for hiring a teacher is from the school board and aministration, The school board president and his immediate predecessor (Mssrs. Ballard and Earnshaw), have posted this info in other blogs at emmaus.patch. It is a number they use in budget discussions and covers what they estimate as the typical total cost for hiring a new position, and could be higher or lower depending on the experience of the actual person selected, but this number is typical and useful for them in their planning.

I would just like to thank everyone who worked so hard on my behalf. I would also like to thank all the people who voted for me and the other candidates.

Jeff you and the other members of your team are a tree blessing to this community. Others may have not had the stomach for what you had to endure. Again, well done!
