On Monday, February 22, 2010,the School Committee voted to approve the School Department budget to be submitted to the Town Manager with the following motion:
The School Committee approves the FY 2011 budget as presented by the Superintendent and School Business Manager during the School Committee meeting of February 22, 2010, with the acknowledgement that: (1) per the town charter, the School Committee must submit an approved budget to the Town Manager on or before February 25, 2010; (2) the School Committee believes that the proposed budget does not reflect the values, goals, and priorities of the District Strategic Plan that was approved at Town Meeting in October, 2005; (3) the School Committee reserves the right to amend the approved budget at any time up to and at Town Meeting on May 11, 2010.
The School Committee's vote was made with the full expectation that the School Committee and the Select Board will meet, before the Select Board votes their budget on or before March 22, 2010, to engage in a full discussion of the parameters set by the Select Board in the development of the FY 2011 budget with the hope that a more equitable allocation of the Town's funding be derived.  Discussion items for this meeting include, but are not limited to: the 70%/30% allocation of the town's deficit between the school department and the other town departments,  assumptions for reductions of state and local aid, use of reserve funds, as well as the allocation of school department reductions of special revenues between the school department and other town departments and revenue-generating opportunities.

The budget documents that were approved by the School Committee on February 22, 2010 are posted here.

On Monday, February 8, 2010, the School Committee held a Budget Hearing on the FY11 budget.   The Superintendent's overview of this first draft of the FY11 School Budget is posted here along with the budget document.   Please click here to view the Power Point presentation that was shown during the Budget Hearing on February 8, 2010.
