Board Approves Next Year's Budget
On January 9, 2023, the Board of Education voted to adopt a $120,728,065 education budget for the 2023-2024 school year. This is an increase of 3.24% to the current operating budget. This increase is half the current rate of inflation. Board members reduced Superintendent Bookman's proposed budget by $320,000. Reduced accounts include elementary supplies, systemwide replacement equipment, and health insurance.
The Board of Education will meet with the Board of Finance and the Town Council in the coming weeks to discuss the education budget. The Town Council will vote on the final budget later in March.

Recognizing Music Outreach
The music department was recently recognized by the Board of Education for its commitment to community outreach. Our music students at all grade levels regularly perform at community events such as the Glastonbury Apple Festival and the town's Veterans Day and Memorial Day ceremonies. They also visit and perform at the Glastonbury Healthcare Center, The Hearth, and Addison Place. Our students are eager to share the gift of music with the broader community. Pictured here is the GHS Brass Quartet who recently performed at a BOE meeting. L to R: Reed Scampoli, Evan Lionberger, Devin Cross, Aazia Zafar.
