If a member of the BOE is reading this, please know that nearly everyone I've spoken to is voting "no" because the administration isn't cutting spending in areas that it should be. Cutting teachers from a school is like cutting Doctors from a hospital to keep admins and the admin's support staff. The only office in that school that needs 2 or more secretaries is the Elementary office. FCS has too many staff members that are not needed. How about the tech support office, is that needed? No. I'm sure a qualified teacher could repair computers. Does the Health office need a secretary? No. Does the business office need multiple staff? No. Does each level need both a principal and an asst. principal? No. One principal at each level w/one assistant to float between all. Does everyone need their own assistant? No. Take some of your own workload on. Quit cutting teachers, aides and programming for our kids! Take some of the "hit" and cut from admin and support staff FIRS

This administration makes me sick. Cut the fat from the TOP! There is NO reason why this school needs Principals AND Vice/Assistant Principals. Cut sports, close that pool which is a drain on our taxes - literally. Vote NO! Make this lazy school board work harder!

I've said it a million times and I'll say it again. Fredonia is being school tax raped! I had enough sense to move years ago but those of you who are still living there need to demand accountability from the board, Paul DiFonzo and John Forbes. They're in this for themselves! BELIEVE IT!

Roberta, I didn't say fire them all. I just think that the administration should share the burden of the cuts. By the way, your grammar is atrocious
