Consolidate districts

I have read about the school board meetings and have even attended one for the Canyons School District. Here are my suggestions for all school boards to consider: outsourcing, sharing and consolidating.

All school districts in the valley should share one data processing department. They should form purchasing cooperatives. They should have a central food service co-op (?la airlines). They should look at centralizing or outsourcing janitorial, carpentry, carpet laying, security and maybe even car pools.

None of these options affect classroom size or teacher salaries.

Think outside the box.
