The Cheshire Board of Education unanimously approved a $66 million budget last night and stated that it was moving forward with plans to implement full-day kindergarten next year, despite the fact that additional funds will be needed.
Board Chairman Gerry Brittingham stated that he was "cautiously optimistic" that the kindergarten change would occur, however, because the amount allocated to the Board by the Cheshire Town Council last month was a nearly $900,000 less than what had been requested, changes to the proposed budget were required. That means the Board will be asking that the Council reallocate approximately $255,000 from the capital budget to the operating budget.
The Council is expected to vote on the matter at its meeting on May 13.
