Yes folks there is just 10 days left to July! That means all those wonderful school board and select board meetings will be gearing up for their budget development work sessions.
So hose off the summer swimming hole doldrums and get yourself a good strong cup of coffee and sharpen your pencil. We’ve got some ciphering to do.
As August roles around we shall be keeping a sharp eye trained on the School Board. The new teacher’s contract needs to be renegotiated. And as budgets fights go…this is the main event
Last year it was the support staff contract and let me tell you this, if this year’s negotiations go like last year’s…hang on to your wallets.
So before we convene our Hocus Pocus Pow Wow (hopefully there will be no dump Henniker Dr.Bruce demonstrations) here is a quick and easy explanation of how the budget comes to be. Many thanks to my conservative mentor of all things school board Jorge Mesa-Tejada for putting together such a wonderful instructional piece. TEJADA BUDGETS Fact or Fiction
Happy trails..until we meet again!
