@Robert , Mr. Schmotzer may have told you that he is accurate BUT! I live with 2 BW employees who know the positions in question., and the one is almost. certain to lose his benefits and job because of this judgement. The kept a maintence man that doesn't even do anything, but they have 2 facilities managers. Well, when school begins and there are not enough custodians to really clean desks and bathrooms, then think back to this judgement.

The nurse position was not eliminated within the BWSD. My knowledge is that it was an out sourced position at a private school.

Common, Correct.

Not sure of the High School, however I have worked with the Harrison Dean of Students and he is hard working, dedicated and bridges the gap between students, principles and parents. This is not a zero sum game where cutting this professional needs to be done to save the teachers.
