Public forum to discuss school budget Feb. 18

New York Mills Public School administrators and board members invite community members to attend a public meeting Wednesday, Feb. 18, 7 p.m., to discuss the financial condition of the district.

The district is facing up to $300,000 in cuts from its 2009-10 budget. Superintendent Todd Cameron said the administration plans to present a first draft of budget reduction recommendations to the board at the Feb. 23 board meeting.

Cameron said the Feb. 18 public forum will give district administrators a chance to provide the community information regarding budget reductions, and to open discussion.

Final decisions of the state legislature and the federal stimulus dollars may or may not have an impact on budget decisions the administration makes.

School administrators plan to look at everything district-wide when considering reductions in the budget.
