on the following topics:
* State funding cutbacks were 2.4% last month but
could be closer to 5% this month. The Collinsville district is better positioned
to weather these cutbacks (as a growing district with a strong fund balance) than
many districts. BUt Collinsville continues to look for savings .. including considering
shutting off most computer each night o save electricity.

to clean surfaces daily and ecourage hand washing as just a few of the measures
to prepare for possible H1N1 fle impacts which have already impacted OSU recently.
Closing impacted school systems is no longer a likely scenario.
