Interesting that they blame the evil state and all those "reports to Department of Elementary and Secondary and Education" which of course "are not optional." Okay fair enough, the state is fairly anal with statistics and reports.
But they are probably fair-and-balanced enough to require such things from ALL public schools in the state.
So why then is ARPS 60% over state average with "administration" costs of $789 per pupil while state average from all the other schools dealing with DESE reports is only $471 per pupil?
Either ARPS has too many administrators, or the perfect number they have are paid too much.
