Two Weeks to Go

Happy March 1st Universe. I have two weeks to go before I will know one way or the other if I am going to be laid off again. March 15th is the drop dead date for mailing out notices in my school district and, if I can make it to the 16th, I can't legally be laid off. That doesn't mean it can't happen but that it can't happen legally.

I'm hopeful that the stimulus package passing in Washington will help defray some of the deeper cuts being proposed locally. But my district supposedly needs to cut some $17 million from its budget, around 10%, after cutting 10% last year.

How in the hell are we supposed to educate our children when education funding is cut year after year?

Ironically, I'm also supposed to have a review soon which will probably see me get a raise, just in time to get laid off.

Send me your good vibes around the 15th, no whammies, 'kay?
