There is coverage everywhere about the budget mess of MDUSD and the recent quote by our Superintendent that he has ". . . no active role in budget development." Well, all except for any coverage at the Times. The Contra Costa Times reported about the fence at Mt. Diablo High School and talked about the backtracking of some layoffs, but that's all that we could find this week other than in Jackie Burrell's aPARENTly Speaking Blog.
We could however find much coverage about the recent district events in other publications and all over cyberspace, so read up:
