59:10 How did you calculate the finding that 1 in 6 Orem students don’t attend an ASD sch? 

1:00:01 What is the average teacher pay for teachers in other sch dists? 

1:01:01 Why does the report criticize large sch dists as inefficient but advocate for economies of scale to save money through shared services agreements?

1:18:21 Are special service agreements the only way to split from Alpine feasibly? 

1:18:31 Why was the A.L.L. sch, Orem Elementary left out of the study? 

1:18:58 Are other factors for the decreasing test scores other than teacher pay considered? 

1:19:54 Lone Peak with 70+ students class size 

1:20:18 Which sch dists along Wasatch Front did you speak to? 

1:20:39 Are you suggesting we do 10% raises & how much would this cost?

1:45:41 Changing test types & scores? 

1:47:30 Your slides on teacher & admin pay are incorrect. 

1:47:52 Why do you imply that students at charter/private/home schs would return to an OSD?
