Redmond teachers are growing increasingly nervous as they look at funding shortfall for the school district. The economic realities do not look good: “The deficit based on the Governor's proposed budget as of the first of the month is $9.8 million for the Redmond School District. That includes about $5 million less in resources, in revenue. In the other side of the scale we see about a $6 million increase in expenditures.” Redmond Schools Operations Director Mike McIntosh says the District is looking at cuts in several areas, including staff.The district is asking us to take concessions, which would be a 1.8% COLA / cost of living, they are asking us to take six days, and they are also talking about a 30-teacher layoff, and that is still up in the air.”  Judy Newman of the Redmond Education Association says teachers realize the economic realities and are willing to work with the district. Teachers are wanting to know as soon as possible which are on the cut list. McIntosh says staffing recommendations from school principals will be available March first, and that will give administrators a better idea of which positions would be involved.
