G'land residents pleads for equity in budget cuts

Board Members Emilio Genzano and Barbara Fraterrigo said they were concerned about costs associated with the district's implementation of full-day kindergarten, and Fraterrigo put forth the idea to return to the half day format.

"Half-day kindergarten, I think, is something we really need to look at," said Fraterrigo. "We lived without it for so many years, and our kids were still successful."

Cuneo said she wanted the district to present the board with different options, in a tiered system.

"I'm curious to know if there are any more options we can be presented with," she said.

The board will have a special meeting on Wednesday, March 31, and will vote on the budget at the Tuesday, April 13, meeting. The budget will then be presented to voters for approval on Tuesday, May 18.
