* No one was fired, some were not replaced after resignation/retirement
* Unexpected significant savings on worker's comp premium
* Working on additional ways to keep the school "public" informed ... will be expanding into Twitter and Instagram social media ... and a few web site adjustments with roles of Ted Wright and Larry Meece. Check back for more info on that as it evolves.
