With nearly every school district facing a budget increase and cuts due to reductions in state-aid and increases in contract and health care budget lines, Patch would like to know if and how you plan on voting on May 17.
Voting in support of a budget in every district will mean higher taxes for every homeowner and voting down a budget would mean the same thing, just on a lesser scale. Voting against a budget would also require school districts to adopt a contingency budget, which in every case would mean more cuts in spending and to extracurricular activities.
In responding to this week’s family forum question, Patch would also like to hear your ideas on how you think school districts can think outside the box to make ends meet.
