The Exeter Township School Board on Tuesday discussed plans to enlist Harrisburg-based engineering contractor McClure Company to survey district buildings and identify possible cost-saving modifications. ... See MoreSee Less
Let me see I have a budget I have to live on because I'm retired. We pay Dr. Phillips 153,000 dollars a year. And he cant find a way to run this school district on the budget we give him. May I suggest we request he find a way to not raise taxes, and use the money he has. Or fire his butt and find someone who can. It's that simple! Lived here since 1984 never has a child in the system. If Dr Phillips cant do the job! I'll do it for 100,000.
So we spend a ton of money to eventually save money, so our taxes will go up to pay for solar panels insulation.so my question is when and who would see cost savings.
Well said Brian and Danielle.
Please share an open post. I can't read it.
ETSD only knows how to waste/$pend money and certainly how to contain costs is never in their purview! In 2015 alone they incurred more than $500k in legal fees to simply fight me in a due process complaint they were never going to win. Superintendent Phillips and especially Suzanne Miller, the Director of Special Education need to both be fired and replaced with someone that holds a half ounce of common sense! Sheer idiots who would do well to attempt to get their doctorate degrees in “real life experience!!!”🤬🙄

Andrea Battler we could make a comment about the lack of a full Time bus driver during this meeting
Look when happened when exeter shedded the waste treatment plant. Costs went up. Fuck this inbred dutch township
How many times do we have to do this?
Business practices aren’t pleasant.
Will this save money ... Lessen tax increases !!!!!!
Please come and support your bus drivers!
NO THEY SHOULD NOT OUTSOURCE!!! THAT'S WHY WE PAY TAXES TO THE DISTRICT
Why would you outsource, they’ve been using the same buses for so many years!! It just doesn’t make sense!
No no no. How about they turn off the high school tennis court lights that are on at 4:15AM!!!!
Yes I reported it and nothing has been done.
Here's something to think about, most of the school districts out source their bus programs. The district still has to pay for the cost but here is where you need to really think about it. I work for company A that is subcontracted to company B. Company B has their own employees with their own pay scale and benefits, I do the same job as company B but is getting paid by Company A. The difference is my pay and benefits is greater package then Company B. So when it comes to out sourcing the buses and drivers they will most likely benefit from it. The new company will need experienced drivers that know the routes and the residents will benefit from it to because if it wasn't cost effective the other districts wouldn't be out sourcing their buses.
Exeter needs to rethink the idea of outsourcing, The children grow up knowing their bus drivers, they trust them and confide in them. The children grow very close to these bus drivers, with outsourcing you have a driver who doesn't care (it is just a job for them) and the children may not have the same driver the next day. I believe allot of children will be left on the bus for the reason these drivers will not know the bus stops and the children will be scared to let them they passed their stop.
Outsourcing has failed historically everywhere it is tried. We have one of the most efficient transportation systems in the state , and this is still a topic ? It is time to discuss actual ways of saving money , not putting band aides on a mortal wounds.
Didn’t we just do a study to determine that keeping it in house was more beneficial? Then we wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars fighting for a $3.5 million Bus Spa.... only to find out our budget was shot and had to increase taxes? This is a circus.....
Will it save tax money 🤨🤨
If you Outsource your bus drivers who's to say they don't raise the rates on you in 2 or 3 years it is easier to keep the bus drivers in house😡
