RCSD Budget Overview

Below is the Rankin County School Board Budget Overview, downloaded from the RCSD Board website.  There is quite a bit of good information contained therein for the curious.

This is the most data I have seen given by the District.

Trying to sell the Bond Issue?

"With a teacher to student ratio of 1 to 15, the district offers the traditional required courses,"


This statement must be from the nineties. The teacher student ratio is more like 1 teacher to 31 kids. I can't believe they are still reporting this to the public. Many classes are at the legal limit.

86% graduation rate seems poor. If more were done to enforce truancy and absentees that rate would go up. Federal money is spent in drop out prevention, however, there are rarely any results. This is just another nonsense program and "check the box" government waste at taxpayers expense.

This district will hire another curriculum specialist (at the drop of hat) but won''t spend the money for things like roof or plumbing repair. WTH is a curriculum instructional technologist? If the district has an IT department than why would employees be hired to work IT in different departments. Are they making up these positions for relatives? The rcsd.ms webpage is an eye opener.

I believe many district positions are for those who are connected and no longer wish to teach class. I support RCSD but feel the district could save money or at least fund maintaining the school buildings properly by downsizing district employees. Most of the teachers have the same thoughts especially after realizing that many of the these titled individuals do little to help out at schools with problems and have forgotten what it is like to teach at all.
