April 12, 2011 – The School Board passed a decision 4-1, with Julie Aranibar opposing, to delay the implementation of three-year plan  to raise employee healthcare premiums until an impasse can be settled with teachers’ unions. The board has had some major insurance funding issues in recent years. While being self-insured created a surplus of 2.1 million in 2006, it has since gone downhill at an increasing rate. While a new three-year-plan is predicted to fix things, board members question whether they can trust the predictions or if the school board should be in the healthcare industry at all.
