But if they won't even spring for a bus, that's a red flag. A bus? Really?? I didn't read anything about a charter bus so I assume it's just a regular school bus. I too, have been in a district that "didn't have money" but gave out large raises to the superintendent every year (but never teachers). The superintendent sent out emails about how poor the district was, we had to cut spending more, tighten out belts, do more with less, and every other buzz phrase he picked up in the latest workshop. Of course we had the money to spend on a $10,000 sound system for the stadium so that they could blast hip-hop music before football games stated even though our system worked fine. Superintendent told us that "our boys" needed a new system to pump them up and that _________________ school just got one so we need to show "our boys" and coaches we are behind them.
