All these comments on the Village Council and spending or saving money but not a word about the BOE. Remember 2/3 of your tax bill goes to them. I saw were a few post on the BOE budget. Nothing about the members of the BOED . They spend our money and run unopposed. I don’t understand it.

  1. Candidate petitions are due in Hackensack on July 30. Plenty of time to fill it out so get to work.

  2. It’s expensive to live in Ridgewood. If that’s a problem for you then maybe you should have thought about that before you bought a house. Your lack of planning doesn’t mean the rest of us have to gut the school system teaching our kids.

  3. The only thing ever cut from the Board budget was lawn maintenance.
    Why waste money on the lawn when they can bilk us for a turf field in a flood zone.
    They should have consulted with a science teacher.

  4. 7:52…thanks for the Math lesson Teach…towns a Ponzi operation vs Taxpapers ..

  5. 7:52 – I moved in 30 years ago, years before I had kids. I’m still here after my kids have left RPS. My taxes have quadrupled but I’m still paying. I worked full time when my kids were young. and I paid good money for kindergarten enrichment. My kids are successful despite not having full day kindergarten . . . why did people think free kindergarten baby sitting was the way to go. There’s no reason to have full day K in our socioeconomic cohort. Just because I want to dump my brats and go to yoga and lunch is not a good reason for full day kindergarten (and no, I don’t hink our real estate value was in jeopardy because we didnt have full day K. No self respecting Mommy around here works). Lots of waste. at the BoE and I just want some form of reasonable increases directed at quality education (BTW . . . RPS has gone down the toilet since I move in and yet, I pay more and more each year) . I can well afford to live here but really don’t want to continue to allow the BoE to spend foolishly. Very little of the proposed increase are going toward classroom and education goals; have you looked at the budget or is your smarmy ass head stuck in the sand?

  6. Full Day K will be mandated by the state in the very near future. Smart move by the board to deal with this now rather than scramble when the edict comes down.

  7. Years ago, Hawes was such a small school that it actually had a full time kindergarten. As the population rose, they had to discontinue it. Since Glen’s school area also goes to Hawes, they had to add a few busses. The kids loved it. The teacher and aide actually spent the time “educating” them. With the massive decline in the schools educational ranking and ability since we came here, I can’t say that all day kindergarten has that marvelous educational standard (and it was a very large class) now.
