School Board debates paper or paperless job postings
Peg Broadcasting News Friday December 19, 2014

The Board of Education approved policy revisions making postings for jobs openings all digital. The new policy, approved on 2nd reading last night states that positions will be posted on the Board website and to those who subscribe to an email list. Gone will be the days of job postings on a bulletin board in each school. Some board members, like Chairman Dan Schlafer, while understanding the need to embrace new technology, were not as confident in its reliability. The 2nd reading passed in a 6-3 vote.

 


Board of Education met in regular session for December
Peg Broadcasting News Friday December 19, 2014

School Board members spent much of last nights meeting discussing changes in several policies. The Board failed once again to approve first reading of a revision in the Dress Code. The change cites that leggings may be worn with shirts, skirts, and dresses that are at least mid-thigh length. Some board members felt a specific length should be included, while others, such as Josh Stone of the 4th District, said that a practical policy was needed and that no matter what the code states; there will always be those who will either ignore or push the limits of any policy. The 1st reading failed in a 4-5 vote, sending the revision back to the Policy Committee.

 


Budget Cuts Could Delay Tax Refunds
WATE Friday December 19, 2014

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen says budget cuts just enacted by Congress could delay tax refunds next year.

At a news conference Thursday, Koskinen said taxpayer services will be hurt, and fewer agents will be auditing returns. He said about half the people who call the agency for assistance wont be able to get through to a person.

Congress cut the IRS budget by $346 million for the budget year that ends in September 2015. The $10.9 billion budget is $1.2 billion less than the agency received in 2010.

The cuts come as the IRS is starting to play a bigger role in implementing President Barack Obamas health law. For the first time, taxpayers will have to report on their tax returns whether they have health insurance.
