In October, she spoke to the school board about information she had received on the district’s claims through September. “If I had a crystal ball I would tell you that our rates are probably going to up. I can’t imagine that they’re not, because our claims have not decreased,” DeLay told the board at the time. She also told them that she was continuing to have conversations with others in the region, talking about some different options for maybe some higher deductible but with some zero co-pay for the insurance carrier themselves. Other rumors DeLay shot down Wednesday included that parents will have to transport athletes to out-of-town sport events and that student fees will increase by 150 percent, neither of which has been discussed. Plus, she addressed a claim that all sports but mainstream sports will be cut. “This was a topic of discussion at a public board meeting in July, as we look at the areas where the budget could be trimmed without cutting instructional staff,” she said, but pointed out that no other discussions have occurred since, “and again, we will involve parents, students and community, to come up with solutions.” Items discussed at the July meeting included putting a freeze on using anymore money from the 2005 override for textbooks and instead focusing on technology; look at the $161,000 vocation contract has to see if any money could be saved there; possible cuts to cocurricular activities, which could save $478,000; furloughs for administration; increasing classroom sizes; and cuts to bussing for students, with the exception of special needs students who are required by law to have access to a bus, a savings of $680,000. In regards to the possibility of there being no bussing in RE-1, DeLay said the district is continuing to talk about the in-town bus routes, primarily because of bus driver shortages, but there has been no discussion of bussing cessation as a district-wide strategy. If there are significant changes that the district wants to look at related to the bussing system, there will be community meetings. DeLay also mentioned there has been no discussion of discontinuing the bus that meets parents at Cedar Creek. Another claim that has been heard is that all special education students will be mainstreamed into the general classroom, cutting four to six special education teachers across the district and the remaining special education teachers will act as case managers.

Tobin, currently archbishop of Indianapolis, is one of three Americans whom Francis will formally elevate as cardinal Nov. 19. His new assignment cements evidence of Francis high esteem and marks a transition away from an archbishop focused on drawing hard lines about Catholic orthodoxy. The leadership change also provides a fresh start for an archdiocese that has been battered recently by controversies over Myers leadership. Tobin issued the following statement Monday morning: My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, One of my favorite descriptions of the experience of faith is a willingness to be surprised by God. By that standard, the last weeks have been exceptionally faith-filled. The first jolt came on October 9, when I learned that Pope Francis had named me to the College of Cardinals. The second tremor arrived on October 22, when I received a phone call from the ambassador of the Holy See to the United States, the papal nuncio, who informed me that Pope Francis had appointed me as the Archbishop of Newark, New Jersey. This assignment was announced publicly today and I will be installed in Newark on January 6, 2017. Receiving that second shock, I immediately thought of you, the people of this great Archdiocese whose pastoral care was entrusted to me four years ago. I remembered how you welcomed me, offered your support in so many ways, forgave my mistakes and limitations and always assured me of your love and the precious backing of your prayer. The thought of leaving you devastated me. I have had many sleepless nights and shed more than a few tears.
