Administrative costs low, quality of education high in Marion County

By

As education budgets are cut statewide, some Florida school districts have managed to keep their administrative costs low to help ease the pinch. The Marion County Public School district has remained among the lowest of the 67 school districts for the past four years. Marion County Public School spokesman Kevin Christian says they have made millions of dollars in cuts during the past few years, and will continue to do so in the future
.
“I think our goal is to stay at the bottom of that list. Whether it’s third, whether it’s second, whether it’s first, it still proves the point that we have made those changes and we are not top heavy and we do not have too many administrators despite what some people in our community may think,” he says.

Christian says the district is careful to make sure the cuts don’t hurt the quality of education and of the learning environment in the classroom.
