Superintendents around the state have their eyes and ears on news coming out of the state capitol as the legislature meets to decide issues that will affect their respective schools. In a recent interview with Bearden Superintendent of schools, Denny Rozenberg, he said he and his board is going to have to consider some cuts in staff and take a look at other areas of the budget.

Rozenberg says if staff cuts are needed most of that will be handled through attrition and teacher retirement.

On another subject, we asked Fordyce Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Albert Snow if he felt that heavy testing of students was a detriment to the learning process.

Snow serves on a committee in the Superintendents Association that decides which bills in the legislature the Association will back and which ones they'll lobby against.
