Faculty meetings

Required faculty meetings. Doesn't the sound of that just make you cringe?

It shouldn't.

I went to my first faculty meeting last week in regards to the school board approving a referendum.

In the last two years, Indiana has altered the way provide money for the General Fund.
Previously they used money from property tax, sales tax, and income tax. Now, dollars for the General Fund come from sales and income taxes alone, which has proven to be an unstable source of revenue.

Obviously, this is a big deal. And I would have missed out had I not attended with enthusiasm.
