WoW! Only a couple days after my 1st 'What's up' post and the BoE announces it's $97 Million in the hole. (see 03/13/10 AJ/C article entitled LATEST SCHOOL BUDGET CRISIS for details)

Gimme an A for predicting the BoE soon would start crying poor mouth re; its financial status; gimme an F for predicting WHEN they would start to do so. I honestly assumed the BoE would extend a little more 'political courtesy' to the BoC before they threw them and EngageGwinnett under the bus. Apparently the BoE figured since the County already had started mailing supplemental tax bills to residents, the County's tax increase was a done-deal and they could start 'piling on.'

Next bookmark -- the FY2010-11 GCPSS budget which the BoE intends to release a couple months from now, around mid-May. Watch the numbers carefully and draw your own conclusions as to whether the BoE has been realistic or they're releasing the equivalent of the County's first-cut Gwinnett Stadium budget. Based on past experience, my prediction is the latter which sets the stage for big-time retrenchments thereafter.
