5/4 and 5/8 Budget Meetings Postponed

posted May 3, 2017, 4:35 PM by Todd West
Good evening!

We have decided to postpone tomorrow's meeting to next Thursday, May 11th, 7:00 PM at DISES. More time is needed to clarify the Free & Reduced Lunch questions that were brought to our attention at the last meeting. It is imperative that I give a clear statement to our communities around these questions and more time is needed to do this well.

This change will also mean that we will be rescheduling the community budget meetings, which were to be held next Monday and Thursday night. They will now be closer to the District Budget Meeting and final vote in June. It makes much more sense to schedule them closer to when our communities will be voting. This will give people who have not been involved over the last 6 weeks a chance to get some focus and answers before the vote.

More info, with adjusted dates will be coming out in this week's Superintendent Update Friday.

At present our plan for next Thursday's Special Board Meeting will be to adopt the budget, approve the warrant articles, have a discussion about whether or not there will be some adjustments to the present admin structure and discuss how our interview committees will be set-up.

My best,

Christian M. Elkington
Superintendent Union 76
