As I mentioned in last week's newletter, you may have heard about the concern regarding the amount for the school's 2012-2013 operating budget. There have been many conversations and many suggestions offered. The budget committee has voted on a budget of $9,197,777.27. However, the school board feels $11,510,850 is necessary to address the needs of our town's specific student population. A couple citizens have asked to use the school to talk about the ramifications of both amounts. This informational session will be held tonight Wednesday, February 1st at 6:30 pm in the Ford Building, located right behind the school. You are strongly encouraged to attend.
.. and while you're there let them know you're not happy with the latest test results
As you can see folks, the School Board will stop at nothing, including using your children to get what they want. Why didn't they make this information available to every taxpayer in town? Once again, they are pitting tax users ( parents ) against the tax payers (all of the citizens of Winchester) in a quest to undue all of the hard work of our Budget Committee . We'd strongly suggest that people opposed to their higher budget attend and give them all an earful.
