Derry’s proposed school budget drops by $81,000
The figures for the 2014-15 budget are based only on a draft and are subject to change, said Jane Simard, the district’s business manager, on Tuesday.
“We’ve only had one meeting so far, and we gave them a general overview,” she said.
Based on a PowerPoint presentation Simard recently gave to school officials, no staff changes would be made at Derry Village Elementary School. At Ernest P. Barka Elementary School, two teaching positions would be eliminated from first and fourth grades and added to third and fifth grades, according to the presentation. By moving the teachers, the school district would not need to hire new ones to replace them, Simard said.
In addition, out-of-district tuition would decrease by $5,000 from $2,745,000 this year to $2,740,000 for 2014-15.
The next meeting of the Fiscal Advisory Committee is scheduled for Monday, Nov. 4, at 6:30 p.m. in the library of Gilbert H. Hood Middle School.
