School Committee to Forward Budget

by Yvette Cain
March 10, 2019

The Boy Scouts of Den 4, Pack 2 led the Pledge of Allegiance to begin the School Committee meeting on Thursday evening in the High School library.  Chair Stacey Raffi called the meeting to order and welcomed the Boy Scout guests and their scoutmaster. 

During public comments, Scoutmaster Joel Lima spoke to the scouts’ knowledge of civics and the workings of town government, subjects they had been studying. Lima wanted his scouts to see the School Committee at work.  Raffi encouraged the Scouts to send emails to members with any questions or comments they might like to share.

Student representative Sarah O’Neill (in photo above) shared a couple of recent HHS activities.

The budget sub-committee of the School Committee presented a line-by-line explanation of their FY20 budget proposal during last week’s meeting.   One week’s review time was allowed prior to its approval.  

At Thursday's meeting, after much dialogue, and with the addition of increased hours for the activities secretary at HHS and a special education teacher at Miller School, the committee voted to approve. 

The final budget proposal that will be presented to the Finance Committee next week represents a 5.56% increase over FY19, and totals $35,501,264.  The capital request was approved as well.  The FY20 budget proposal will be presented to the Finance Committee on March 12 at 7:35 AM.

The next meeting of the School Committee is March 21, 7:00 PM, in the HHS library.
