Losing two days' pay a year would hardly be noticeable. At my company we all lose five days' pay every quarter. That's like not getting paid at all one month of the year. That's a tough pill to swallow, but we're doing it in order to get through this so some of our co-workers don't lose their jobs, houses, cars, and everything else.

From today's Indianapolis Star
district might cut
20% of jobs
Posted: March 19, 2010
ANDERSON, Ind. -- A central Indiana
school district could see 20 percent of its
jobs cut for next school year as it works
to close a multimillion-dollar budget
Anderson Community Schools
superintendent Felix Chow says the
number of teacher and other positions
eliminated could "easily" surpass 200.
Chow tells The Herald Bulletin that layoff
notices will be mailed next week to about
The jobs cuts come on top of a move
consolidating the district's two high
schools into one and closing four
Chow says the district has little choice
but to make drastic cuts as it faced a
potential $22 million shortfall by 2011.

Teachers will give up two days and that will leave one extra day, probably the first day without students. I imagine teachers will come in those days they give up just so they can prepare for second semester and finish the year. They can't give up more because of the days required by the state. If the state were to scale back the number of days students are required to be in school then teachers could give up more days. If you cut back on students days, you open another can of worms.
VOTE YESCurses foiled again!

What some people aren't understanding is that the entire state is having problems with the budget cuts. Without the ability to move money from each individual fund, the schools have no choice but to ask for a referendum or lose teachers and programs.
My suggestion for those who do not want to vote yes for the referendum: Urge your representative to push for a bill to allow funds to be managed so that schools can use money from different funds to pay teachers and keep programs. They just passed legislation that allows 5% to be used, but this isn't enough.
If you are simply a naysayer, and refuse to believe Western Boone is in trouble, watch the video above to see what is being cut. If you think they're being dramatic for votes, GO TO THE SCHOOL, spend 15 minutes there and you will realize it is a very real situation. Teachers are worried about their jobs, kids are worried about losing programs they have a passion for, and parents are starting to wonder what Western Boone will have to offer their children if the referendum doesn't pass.
Watch the video, it brings light to many of the questions people have been asking. It tells you what is going to be cut if it doesn't pass, and it gives you general information on how much it may cost you.
