FY21 Budget Request Update

FY21 Budget Request Update
Posted on 06/06/2020
In financial matters, the school committee re-voted a budget number at last night's school committee meeting reflecting cuts and reductions of teaching positions in the amount of $2,531,244 in reductions or 3.54%.
 FY21 Revised Operating Budget Request (June 2020): $69,001,035
 As we head into this next phase of budgeting and a hoped-for July town meeting, we must successfully negotiate a 0% cost of living adjustment from all of our unions and continue to negotiate a remaining gap of approximately 2 million dollars. We hope this can be addressed so we do not have to make additional cuts--and we hope that the state budget numbers (which may not be available to us until late summer) so not mean further cuts and staff layoffs in the fall. Our collaboration with town partners to creatively balance the budget it ongoing. Please stay informed by watching the upcoming Board of Selectman (6/8) and School Committee meetings (6/9).
