Supt addresses trustee’s questions

During last month's meeting of the Coeur d'Alene School District Board of Trustees, Trustee Dave Eubanks had some questions. On Monday night, at the October board meeting, Superintendent Matt Handelman provided Eubanks with answers to those questions. "There were a few questions asked publicly, and I want to make sure I address and answer them publicly as well," Handelman said. "Some of them I probably could have answered last time, but I wanted to make sure I had accurate information." Before asking the questions last month, Eubanks said he had to raise them because of a trend in deficit spending beginning in 2012. For the upcoming fiscal year, the trustee said, the district is planning on another $2.5 million in deficit spending, including the "shortfall" created during the construction of Winton Elementary. Handleman addressed each of Eubanks' questions, beginning with one raised about the superintendent's expense account/Keith Cousins, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
