JCS's budget is a solid 15-19 percent higher per capita than local school of comparable size. This was one of Moro's biggest concerns.
"Research needs to be done to see how we can bring these numbers down," he said. "We should learn from the success of the schools around us."
Other community members who attended the meeting were concerned with the student/teacher ratio at JCS. With 350 students, the school employs 43 teachers and 63 total staff members. Many said that is excessive.
Community members have mobilized and will continue to voice their budget concerns until they go to the polls.
The public is welcome to attend a budget presentation, which will take place on May 10 at JCS and the budget will go to a vote on May 18.
