I could be wrong, but I don't think skin grafts after a horrible accident fall into the category of "elective".
From the article:

The procedures, provided under the teachers' union contract, accounted for 9 percent of the district's total spending on health benefits for employees and retirees.
I very much doubt that the school district is allocating 9% of its medical spending to skin grafts after horrible accidents.
