The FY 19 Freetown-Lakeville Regional School Preliminary Budget was presented on Wednesday, January 24, 2018. The $38,258,474 budget includes a modest increase of 2.18 % from our current FY 18 budget. Highlights include: continued textbook updates, increased maintenance services, ongoing security upgrades, academic level services with no additional staffing, higher enrollment, increased revenue through school choice, food service, and athletics. In addition, the budget includes the establishment of a Special Education Stabilization Fund and a replacement maintenance vehicle. Please refer to the "2019 Budget Proposal" link here and on the main web page for the full presentation.
As the FY 19 budget season continues, we will look to your support as we provide appropriate resources to meet our growing educational needs. Our recent success only continue if we meet our monetary commitment to “raise the bar” in both towns. The preliminary FY 19 school budget discussion will continue with both towns at our next school committee meeting, Wednesday, February 7, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in the ARHS library.
I look forward to our continued drive toward excellence in 2018, as we raise the bar for all students. Please be reminded that we have an early release day for all students on Monday, February 5, 2018 to provide professional development for our teaching staff. Enjoy the Super Bowl this weekend with family and friends. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call 508-923-2000 ext. 1703 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
