Anne Sharp plan to rebuild R-8 fund balance: We'll think of something
That is even noted in the district's strategic plan.
It seems strange that the Board of Education has a plan that says the balance will drop to eight percent and then will rise back up to 25 percent in a few years.
What is that plan?
According to Board President Anne Sharp, the plan is 'We'll think of something."
In other words, there is no plan. Taxpayers have to simply have faith that Anne Sharp and C. J. Huff will come up with a plan before the balance sinks below eight percent.
And you can't keep borrowing millions and millions and waiting for your government ship to come in.
In an interview in today's Joplin Globe, Sharp explains the plan:
"I know that we're getting together to do board goals, and one goal will align with our (strategic plan) to build our fund balances. That's a discussion the board needs to have and say where is the money going."
In other words, Anne Sharp doesn't have the slightest idea what she is talking about.
