This year’s school budget proposal reflects current concerns around the wellbeing of students, staff and community. Learning recovery, social and emotional needs, and ongoing pandemic management protocols are considered as critical factors in all decision-making.
The School Board has reviewed the budget during public meetings and made adjustments to reduce the taxpayer impact. This document outlines the adjustments from Fiscal Year 2022 to 2023, as well as the proposed budget by Leadership Council and proposed budget by the School Board (approved at School Board Second reading on May 5, 2022).
Town Council Vacancy
There are three candidates running to fill the open seat on Town Council. The vacancy was left when former councilor Paul Johnson resigned in March 2022. The elected candidate will fill the seat with a term to expire in 2024.
