District 186 School Board members are in agreement on the need for an efficiency study but don’t agree on how to get one started.

Interim Superintendent Dr. Robert Hill says he is looking for a company that specializes in school studies but board member Judy Johnson has another idea.

“Not only this year have I asked for an evaluation for what administrative positions we have and what the duties are.  To me, that would be a great start and that is something that could be done in-house” says Johnson.

The idea behind a study is to ensure the district is spending their money wisely while meeting state and federal mandates.

Discussions will continue at a special board meeting next week when Hill presents the next fiscal year’s proposed budget.
