March 8, 2017 Public Comment on the 2017-2018 School Budget

The Board will be voting on the 2017-2018 Superintendent’s Recommended Budget at the Board Meeting on March 22nd. Next week at the March 8th Board meeting,  I will give a brief overview of the latest revisions to the budget before deliberations begin with the Board of Directors. We have received some updated projected revenues and expenditures that we will be sharing. At this meeting, there will also be an opportunity to have your voice heard as we will be taking public comment and questions during this session. The meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. in the Freeport High School Library. We have proposed a budget that we believe to be fiscally responsible and that will lead to increased student achievement. We welcome your feedback to our proposed budget. Budget information can be found on the RSU5 website located here.
