SCHOOLWATCH SAVES COMMUNITY OVER $4M BY POINTING OUT TECHNOLOGY FUND FARCE!
Waste and mismanagement has run rampant under the auspices of the current East Islip Board of Education. They
have brought the community to its knees with tax increase after tax increase! 5.4% in 2006, a whopping 12.69% increase
in 2007, and another 7.1% in 2008. THAT'S OVER 25% IN 3 YEARS!
KIM PHILLIPS HAS DEFINITELY EARNED THE TITLE "HIGH TAX
VOTE MAY 20th AND
DUMP HIGH TAX PHILLIPS!
UNFORTUNATELY, KIM PHILLIPS LEGACY OF WASTE AND MISMANAGEMENT
WILL LIVE ON IN CONTINUED TAX HIKES AND REDUCED SERVICES TO OUR CHILDREN INTO THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE...
WELFARE FUND - the Fund was established in 1975 to provide health and other welfare benefits to supplement the benefits that
are unilaterally provided by the School District to its employees. East Islip is 1 of only 3 districts on Long Island
that offes this supplemental benefit!
KIM PHILLIPS COULD HAVE NEGOTIATED THE WELFARE FUND OUT OF THE CONTRACT, BUT
SHE DIDN'T! (THIS ALONE COSTS THE EAST ISLIP COMMUNITY $1,000,000 PER YEAR)
IT HAS REACHED THE POINT WHERE $$$ FOR
EXTRA PERKS AND BENEFITS ARE COMING DIRECTLY OUT OF OUR CHILDRENS' PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES!
THIS IS NOT SUSTAINABLE! (Read
the letter we sent to the BOE before they negotiated away the store and the keys!
Letter to East Islip Board of Education
STATE AID - The East Islip School District has been leaving State Aid on the table while continually
asking you, the community, for more and more each year? Literally over one half of a million dollars of LOST educational
GRANTS - The East Islip School District has not actively pursued grants and appropriations
for years? (For example, they did not apply for millions of dollars in class size reduction aid, while neighboring districts
have received millions of dollars! Additionally, in the last 5 yrs over half a million dollars for computer and technology
aid was ignored.
