Bad News - Kingston School Board budget draft calls for 7.1% tax increase.
Kingston School Board budget draft calls for 7.1% tax increase. The current budget draft continues the "dismantling" of our Kingston School district by closing a school and laying off teachers. This type of cuts really hurts students and parents. A pay freeze would only mildly affect the teachers, support & administrative personnel. Keep in mind the teachers are doing their best, but it is the teacher union leaders who refuse to go along with a pay freeze. Any pay freeze must not come with any strings to pay back the unions for their temporary pay freeze.
