Board Votes on Final 2021-22 Budget

On April 5, 2021, the Board of Education voted on the final education budget for the 2021-2022 school year. The Board's originally projected budget from January was reduced by the Town Council in March and several accounts were adjusted to reflect updated cost projections. The final budget of $113,549,684 is a 1.61% increase over the current year's education budget.

The Board reduced areas that would not directly impact student instruction. The most significant budget adjustments were made in the areas of the health insurance reserve fund, utilities, and elementary and secondary supplies.

The Board monitors class sizes throughout the spring and summer. They will make any necessary staffing adjustments to accommodate enrollment.
