ATTEND THE SPECIAL TOWN MEETING DEC. 1ST 7 PM (SB Regional High School), GET INFORMED, AND VOTE! (Babysitting provided by Big Buddies until 8:30).

On Nov. 19, the PTO discussed the Dec. 1st Special Town meeting articles addressing the Pre-K-8 deficit and impact it could have on the school budget, and we wanted to share the following with North families.

The new Administration has recognized immediate areas for improvement, including:

1)  Detailed analysis of current 2014-2015 budget and enhancements to ensure ongoing projection tracking of all costs;

2) Spending freeze on all non-discretionary expenditures (maintenance, professional development, certain instructional supplies and technology) to ensure the 2014-2015 budget is financially sound;

3) Absorption of personnel positions due to attrition and redeployment of staff resulting in savings on salaries;

4) Assessments for development of special education programs (saves on outplacement tuition and transportation costs but also allows students to stay with their Somerset peers).

5)  Identified and implemented enhancement to the bus route system, residency requirements, and food service program.

The School Dept. will ask voters to approve the 4 articles proposed (which need 9/10ths of the vote to be approved):
1.) To appropriate the sum of $373,414.11, to pay bills from Fiscal Year 2014;
2.) To appropriate the sum of $51,173.60, to cover the Fiscal Year 2014 deficit for the Food Service Program.
3.) To appropriate the sum of $69,116.33 to pay various vendors for the Food Service Program.
4.) To appropriate the sum of $17,568 to pay various vendors for services received in fiscal year 2012-2013.

The Nov. 18th edition of the Spectator has a front page article on the Special Town meeting. If the deficit is taken from this year's budget, it will affect the education of students. We urge you to get informed and vote on Dec. 1st. (You must be a registered voter and will need to produce identification at the meeting. Check in starts at 6:15 PM). Thank you!
