The Greater Victoria school district is going to be hiring its third associate superintendent.
The district already has one superintendent and two associate superintendents (well over $500,000 in salaries and expenses).
A third associate superintendent will cost the district more than $150,000.
On the other hand, the school board will close Sundance elementary school to save $300,000.
Why is there no freeze on hiring when they’re so strapped for cash they have to close schools, eliminate educational programs and re-consider even the safety of our students by putting in question many seismic upgrades to schools as well as infrastructure improvements?
Parents, what would you rather have, a third associate superintendent or educational programs and safe schools for your kids?
