To the editor:

I read that the Dublin school district is reviewing class size increases and busing changes for potential cost savings.

Data provided by the Dublin school district in August shows an opportunity for additional cost savings by consolidating or eliminating administration and support positions that are not directly involved in teaching students.

More than 1,100 employees of the Dublin school district have a salary of $50,000 or more; more than 600 of these employees have a salary of $74,000 or more; and of these, 38 have a salary of $100,000 or more.

In reviewing the titles of those making $100,000 or more, it appears that all of those in the $100,000-plus range are administration positions not directly involved in educating students.

Do we really need that many administrators at an annual expense in the $4,000,000 range to provide a quality education to our students? Could some of these positions (and the expense associated with them) be shared with other school districts in the area?

With the value of many assets (homes, savings, investments) eroding, families are faced with making hard financial decisions and our school system needs to continue to do the same.
