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.
