Community member Deena Staples
During the June 9 annual school budget meeting, community member Deena Staples makes her case for amending the second article of the amendment to include an additional $52,000. Staples wanted the funds reinstated in order to have two second grade classes next year at the elementary school. That amendment, and all others brought to the floor at the June 9 meeting, was eventually voted down and the budget approved as presented in the warrant.
