The Superintendent’s 2017-18 Local Operating Budget recommendation has been presented to the Board of Education. The recruitment and retention of our staff continues to be our primary budget driver. We are also anticipating that the General Assembly will continue to prioritize teacher salaries in the current legislative session. The majority of the Superintendent’s recommended budget includes funding needed to match anticipated state salary and benefit increases for our locally paid teachers and staff. In addition, the recommended budget includes funding to maintain our middle school afterschool program, funding to restore elementary level teacher assistants that were reluctantly cut three years ago, and funding to ensure safe and reliable transportation services.
This is the first step in the annual budget process. A variety of resources are provided below. Over the course of the spring, local and state decisions will be made that will ultimately determine the level of funding for our schools. We will continue to update this website with current information as it becomes available. Thank you for your continued support.
