Thank you to all who helped to pass the 
school budget on Town Meeting Day...especially the VOTERS!

The budget for the 2015-2016 fiscal year represents a 1.75% increase over the budget approved by the voters for the current year.   Most of the budget growth will be devoted to ensuring that future budget deficits can be avoided by properly accounting for all of the District’s actual spending obligations. 

The historically low rate of growth was the byproduct of a different approach to building a budget. Instead of basing next year’s budget on last year’s budget, the proposed budget is supported by the following three pillars:

  • An appraisal of student needs and the resources required to promote success for all students
  • Regionally comparable standards that are generally associated with high-quality schools
  • Efficiency and productivity measures designed to reduce growth in spending to a sustainable level in keeping with local economic conditions

Friends, Families neighbors, come support the Hunt production of HAIRSPRAY by attending the upcoming:
