FY2011 Budget

“Schools Bracing for Deep Cutbacks”

The headline from a front page article in Wednesday’s Boston Globe describes what is happening in every superintedent’s office and school committee meeting across the state.  This year’s budget will be even more difficult than last year’s budget. 

The work in the coming weeks will be to identify reductions that bring our operating budget in line with our guideline of 2.5%.  While difficult, I am hearing from most of my colleagues in other communities that we are lucky to have any increase at all.

My goal will be to regularly post budget updates as we work through this process.
