Budget Season

The school administration has been assembling budget information for the 2007-08 school year. This process has involved dialogue, input, and direction from the board’s Finance Committee. The next step in the process is for the district’s budget to be approved by the full board for submission to the Gloucester County Department of Education.

There will be a special meeting for this approval next Monday, March 12, at 7:00 p.m. The meeting will be held in the Board Conference Room on the first floor of the Jr.-Sr. High School.

Once this preliminary approval is complete, the board will await comment from the county office. Any comment directing change will be factored into the budget. Then, a formal public hearing on the budget will take place at this month’s regularly scheduled board meeting – Tuesday, March 27.

Ultimately, the residents of the city will vote the budget on Tuesday, April 17.

More detail on the budget will be provided once the board’s preliminary budget is finalized and submitted to the county office for review.
