June 26: Ashburnham BOS Looking for Public Input Tonight

Dear SOCS members,

There are several important meetings this week about the 2017-2018 school budget.

The Ashburnham Board of Selectmen are now having two meetings to discuss the school budget situation.

  • TODAY—Monday, June 26th at 6:30—at the Public Safety Building they will discuss the override vote results and give the public a chance to share thoughts.
  • Wednesday, June 28th at 6:30 they will focus on next steps based on the School Committee decision (made at their meeting on Tuesday). The BOS have not yet confirmed a location—either in the Safety Building or in a room at the Town Hall. We will let you know.

The AWRSD School Committee Committee will meet on Tuesday, June 27 at 6:30 pm in the Overlook Middle School Library to review and vote on the best option for moving forward with the 2017-2018 operating budget.

  • Certify the budget represented by the amounts approved at the annual town meetings last May.
  • Certify a new number between the number approved at town meetings and the prioritized budget.
    Re-certify the prioritized budget.

There will be a chance for public comment, and you can write your thoughts to the committee (contact details available here) if you’re unable to attend.

We hope you can be part of these important discussions.
