PRESENTATION OF THE PROPOSED 2017-18 OPERATING BUDGET FOR JOEL BARLOW HIGH SCHOOL/REGION 9 SCHOOL DISTRICT
Mr. Hancock presented the proposed 2017-2018 Region 9 Budget. The proposed operating budget is $23,789,137 which represents a 2.18% increase over the current year. The budget for the Town of Easton will be $11,061,949 or a .6% increase and $12,727,188 or an increase of 3.4% for the Town of Redding.
Lynne Menapace, Drummer Lane, Redding: Questioned what the plan would be if the State budget cut further into reimbursements to the District than the budget plan?
Mr. Hancock responded that the budget reflects an allowance to address the State’s budget at this time and that he was confident that the District’s proposal would be sufficient.
Motion: move that the Region 9 Board of Education meeting be adjourned. D’Agostino, Coppinger. Approved. Unanimous.
