In Chula Vista Elementary School District, Human Resources director (and former CVE President) Peg Myers easily wins first place in the high maintenance category for most expensive inservice/travel request ($2,124) in the January 23, 2013 board agenda. M. Saucedo went to the same Long Beach CABE conference, and stayed for one day longer, but came back with a travel request of $1,020, less than half of what Myers spent.
The following people were even more thrifty while attending the same conference for the same length of time:
N. Rojas $550
S. Johnson $879
R. Ponce, R $100 (perhaps stayed with friend/relative)
M. Stoneburg $879
S. Velazquez $879
Really, how many people can you take out to lunch or dinner at one time? And what purpose is served by taking out lots of people? Or, if Peg wasn't spending on others, how much was she spending on herself?
