Budget Information

Each year the School Committee works with the Administration to develop an annual budget.
The operating budget includes all annual recurring costs, such as salaries and classroom supplies. The capital budget typically includes expenses that have a useful life of at least two years and a purchase price of at least $5,000.00, such as building repairs and classroom equipment. Budgets are based on a fiscal year, which goes from July 1 to June 30. Fiscal Year 2017, for example, is from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017.
