Re-1 Superintendent Stacy Houser told the Free Press the impacts of school-funding cuts are being felt system-wide - in aging facilities, larger classes, a smaller staff, and a chronic shortage of supplies.
"Certainly the facilities are a problem. That hits us every day," Houser said. Houser said the education-funding crunch can be traced back to passage of the TABOR tax-cutting act in 1992, or even to the state's 1982 Gallagher Amendment, which effectively reduced residential property- tax assessments. Critics have said that "throwing money at the problem" won't solve it, but money certainly is a factor in a quality education, Houser said. "I can't throw out a figure and say, 'This correlates to student achievement,' but in a struggling community like Montezuma County, to say that money does not help - that is tremendously short-sighted. I think the funding does directly impact student learning in our district." For instance, he said, four years ago 70 percent of first-graders were coming into the classroom with a below-grade-level vocabulary. "That happens coming into the schools, not IN the schools," Houser said. Re-1's four-day week, adopted to save money, also has a detrimental effect, making scheduling much tougher, Houser said. "It makes it more difficult to get all those needs met for the different groups in a classroom." He said he has seen no evidence that lack of money affects teacher performance, but it certainly affects retention, particularly when there are districts an hour to the south, east or north offering higher pay. "Stacy was the one that suggested it. "Amendment 23 was intended to offset some of the ratcheting-down and keep K-12 above the tax cuts," Houser said, "but the last three years that did not happen, because of the state's finances." Over the past three years, Re-1's budget was cut $1.5 million, $1.5 million and $1 million, Houser said. The entire Re-1 budget is approximately $28 million. "I'm hearing we can expect the same-size cut for the coming year," he said. "Every year you think this is the last time, but word is they're looking to make up another $500 million shortfall. "If we have to cut another $1 million or $1.5 million, I totally don't know where it's going to come from," he said. "I told the principals last year that the cuts we make are going to have direct impacts on students and families." A measure on the November ballot, Proposition 103, would raise the state sales and use tax from 2.9 to 3 percent and the state income-tax rate from 4.63 to 5 percent for five years. The expected $3 billion that would be generated would go to public schools and higher education. But even if it passes, Proposition 103 is not a remedy, just a way to keep education from sustaining further cuts over the next five years, Houser said. "There is going to have to be a statewide, maybe constitutional, remedy and I'm hoping Lobato will be the instigator for that." Houser said educators look at achievement standards and say, "How can we achieve those goals with the cards they dealt?"

After a 90-minute executive session, and nearly three weeks since former Re-1 superintendent Stacy Houser cleared his office, the board named Mary Rubadeau of Telluride as the district's interim-superintendent.
Although there has been no official statement of resignation from Houser, the board received approval from their attorneys to name an interim superintendent.

Still no word on who will be filling Montezuma-Cortez School District Re-1 superintendent's seat on the interim basis left vacant when Stacy Houser resigned following a school board meeting last Monday, Jan. 9.
They will also discuss finding a permanent replacement for Houser at the meeting, which will be held at the administration building. "The board is still trying to close their agreement with Dr. Houser," Canzona said. Houser, who came to Re-1 as superintendent in 2005, still has not made an official statement, saying only that his office at the administration building is cleaned out. He also said that he supports Re-1 and that he wishes the students and staff well.

Montezuma-Cortez School District Re-1 Superintendent Stacy Houser has resigned from his duties with the school board, although no official statement has been released.
When asked for a statement Thursday, Houser said that he was waiting on a few phone calls. "I will say that my office is as clean as it has ever been," said Houser. On Wednesday, Lanier said, "The official statement is that the board is not taking action, we don't have a resignation yet. (Houser) has cleaned out his office." Houser came to the Re-1 School District to fill the role of superintendent in the summer of 2005. Prior to that he held diverse positions in education and public service in Texas and abroad. He was a policeman in Dallas, a youth camp official, a cultural center director in South Africa and has taught at Baylor Christian University in Texas, where he also earned a Bachelor's degree in art before attaining a master's degree in educational leadership from Austin State University. He then earned his Doctorate from Austin Presbyterian Seminary. Houser also did post-graduate work at Texas A&M. Houser was raised in Kenya, where his family were missionaries. It remains unclear what the Re-1 board has planned for the immediate future, or who will serve as interim superintendent. During a brief telephone interview, Houser said the he still supports the Re-1 school district. "I wish the students and staff all the best," he added.
