In light of our budget woes ("our" meaning all of us here on AtoZ, because this seems to be an issue felt all over the country), districts are already making big plans for big econimic changes. We know this includes pink slips, but what else are your districts doing? Our district just cut off the heating, so the classrooms are freezing! I hate it because I am already always cold, and now it is even worse. I feel so bad for the kids because they deserve to have nice, warm classrooms.... Not in these economically tough times.
