UPDATE: The Board of Education on Wednesday night approved a 2018-19 budget plan, which will be forwarded to the Board of Finance and then the aldermen before final approval.
The board voted unanimously to approve Supt. Dr. Elizabeth Feser's proposed budget, with two changes: (1) The board voted to increase the student athletics account by $4,000 to equalize the amount paid by girls to play hockey with what the boys pay to play. The funds to cover that increase came from the Trumbull VoAg tuition account. (2) The board also increased the buildings account by $361,500 to fund the first and second building project priorities submitted by each principal, with members saying it is important the schools maintain their buildings.
