BOE Makes No Changes To Florio's Budget Request, Forwards It On To Town Manager

January 17, 2014 by michael torelli

The Cheshire Board of Education unanimously approved Superintendent of Schools Dr. Greg Florio's budget request of $66.89 million on Thursday night.
The budget will now be forwarded to the Town Manager and Town Council.
All BOE members feel that the requested increase of almost $3.2 million, or about five percent, will cover needs, not wants. Of those increases, $1.5 million will be for salaries, $1.2 for medical benefits, and $400,000 for instructional expenses, which include special education tuition costs.
Incorporated into the budget request is a start-up cost of $856,000 to implement full-day kindergarten next school year.
For more information on the BOE member’s views and why they feel their budget request is appropriate, see an upcoming edition of the Cheshire Herald.
