Re: “Thornydale Elementary Closing After 4-1 Governing Board Decision

I rather think it must be competitors with a better product or the other surrounding public schools would be over crowded. I think they have lost them to the area charters and private schools. I am still glad that we have so much choice in education. Group think is unhealthy and stagnating.

Re: “Thornydale Elementary Closing After 4-1 Governing Board Decision

Typical small thinking by the board. All the money needs to go to their shiney new school in Dove Mountain. Don't worry about all the special ed kids that are doing so well in a small intimate community.
Just forget about the neighborhood that now has no walk-able elementary school. Makes a difference in home sales and values.
Just is bad news to everyone.

Re: “Thornydale Elementary Closing After 4-1 Governing Board Decision

You can't compare the $10,363 which is a total number including federal and debt service with the $4,662 which is likely just Operation and Maintenance.

Marana is likely to find that they can't save money by closing schools. A harsh new reality. They are going to lose a lot of those students.

Re: “Thornydale Elementary Closing After 4-1 Governing Board Decision

Thank you for your response. It is exactly what I feared, but I never knew who to ask. How could TUSD have money problems, unfunded pensions?

Re: “Burn notice

Hello. I grew up in Tucson, Arizona, my father was founder of Kitt Peak, etc. And...now I live on a mountain upstate NY. We are freezing our nuts off now! Winters are getting longer and colder. It went below zero F before Thanksgiving!!! During Ice Ages, my mountain was under a mile of ice. We have ice everywhere now, since mid-November. There is no 'global warming' at all. There is local warming at warm places that never had glaciers in any Ice Ages.

Re: “Thornydale Elementary Closing After 4-1 Governing Board Decision

"Marana spends $4,662 per student, Does anybody know what TUSD spends?"

We don't have this year's data yet, but you can get last year's data from the AZED.gov website from the Superintendent's report.

TUSD total spending was $456 million, which when you divide by attendance 44,948 is $10,363.

But, that's not the number being quoted.

It also includes high schools which are more expensive.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Paris...France...Underpants

So...CW13, just curious, when did you get your degree in climate science? To boldly declare that climate change is a crock of shit, you must have some knowledge that 99% of actual scientists do not. Or, maybe you're like the stupid baby that is the po(tu)s and if it's too complicated for you to understand, you brand it as fake news. I'm placing my money on the latter.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Paris...France...Underpants

France:
The nationwide protests have been escalating since Nov. 17, amid growing anger over rising fuel taxes and the high cost of living. The protests have already started taking a toll on the French economy, with hotel reservations dipping, retailers reporting lower sales and some gas stations running out of fuel because resupply trucks cant get past protester blockades.
