BUDGET INFORMATION

FY20 School Department Proposed Budget
FY20 School Department Budget - Public Hearing Presentation

The School Committee did not vote to seek a Proposition 2-1/2 Override for Fiscal Year 2020. However, it must be stressed to the community that the School District is in need of additional funding to restore positions and services that were previously reduced or cut from the budget due to financial constraints of the Town. Please read the below communication from Dr. Elizabeth Zielinski, Superintendent of Schools, along with the Restoration List of positions and services that the School Committee feels strongly should be funded and restored for the best interests of our students and community. Thank you.
