Welcome to Westborough Public Schools
As the leaves continue to fall from the trees and the weather has turned markedly colder, we are reminded that winter is on its way! At this time of year, we also begin our budgeting process for the following year. I’d like to take this opportunity to provide what I hope is a timely update to our process for the development of the FY18 School Budget.
Last evening the School Committee heard the first of what will be several presentations and discussions leading up to the December 14th final vote of approval. We presented information on enrollment growth as well as preliminary requests related to enrollment needs. Our Technology Director, Jon Green also presented a technology update and provided the K-12 technology requests. In the event you were unable to attend or watch the meeting on the local cable channel, links to the presentations are provided here. Additional budget presentations will be made on November 9th, and on November 16th I will present my recommendations to the committee. The final recommended budget will be made available at the Public Hearing on December 7th to which all are welcome and invited to attend. Should you have any questions along the way, please feel free to contact my office.
