Administrators and school board members in the Champlain Valley School District have begun the process for building the school budget for 2018-19 school year.
Feedback and meetings so far have sent a message that the community wants to keep a high caliber of education while finding cost-cutting efficiencies in the new unified school district, school officials said.
Additional budget meetings are scheduled for:
• Dec. 19 at 6 p.m. in the Hinesburg Community School Flex Space; topic will be operations and maintenance.
• Jan. 9 at 6 p.m. in the Shelburne Community School Library to discuss revenues and taxes.
• Jan. 23 at 6 p.m. in the Williston Central School Dining Room for the budget’s final approval.
Agendas, past minutes, and materials for these meetings can be found at cvsdvt.org/domain/18. Recordings are available at retn.org. Email at CVSDBoardCommunityConnections@cvsdvt.org.
