Proposition 206 set in motion a series of hourly wage increases to $12.00. It was certified by the State on August 19, 2016 as having enough signatures to appear on the ballot and subsequently approved by 58.33% of those voting. The measure, challenged in court before and after the election, stands as law today. What makes this so difficult for the hired, rated and paid administrators of our various school districts? Their jobs are to analyze their budgets and personnel needs, and report to their respective elected boards. The over-the-fold article (May 21, 2017) would have you believe they were blindsided by all this. Lazy? Perhaps. Unaware? Unacceptable.
