Eye On Boise

Dems’ motion is up first

Rep. Wendy Jaquet, D-Ketchum, has made the first motion on public schools, seconded by Rep. Shirley Ringo, D-Moscow. The school budget is divided into five divisions; the first division is for administrators. Jaquet and Ringo set a base salary reduction for administrators of 3 percent rather than 5 percent, eliminated three proposed furlough days, and eliminated a move to freeze the salary grid. The difference would be made up with federal stimulus money that’s earmarked for public schools, plus $334,300 from the public school stabilization fund. “This is what the dollars were coming for for education,” Jaquet said, “keeping the jobs.”
