I would like to encourage the Macon County Commission to consider fully funding the shortfall the Macon County School Board (MCSB) now faces. I do not know all the reasons the MCSB has found itself in a position to be $1.6 million short for FY 2013/14 but we should not play the blame game at this point. It appears the interim superintendent has done everything possible to make the MCSB work with the allotted funds but it simply will not work without additional funding. As a small business owner, I understand the importance of doing more with less and I do everything possible to manage my expenses in order to stay in business. I think the MCSB will need to better manage their expenses in the future, but the FY 2013/14 budget needs funding to avoid harm to the current delivery of education.
