FY18 Budget process has begun

The budget adoption process began with the superintendent's presentation of the proposed budget to the School Committee on January 26.  On Monday, January 30 we will begin holding workshop sessions (please see the full budget schedule, below).  Members of the public are invited to attend as many of these discussions as possible, so you may be well-informed of the challenges our schools are facing and how the Fiscal Year 2018 budget will address those concerns.

You may click to view the handouts from the preliminary budget presentation.

You may also view the proposed line-item budget by department.
