Goffstown School Board addresses budget needs
The board held a Deliberative Session special meeting on Oct. 30. The six-minute meeting at Goffstown High School was attended by about 15 people, with no public comments.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Goffstown High School and at Bartlett Elementary School.
The Goffstown School Board’s 2014-15 budget was discussed at the Oct. 30 and Nov. 4 meetings, in preparation for presenting the proposal to the Budget Committee on Nov. 6.
The School Board’s proposed budget is $37.7 million, and the default budget amounts to $37.4 million. The difference of $300,000 includes adding safety items at the schools, including security cameras, panic devices, interior door locks and exterior doors — with the work to be done this year; and $211,000 for part-time staff and paraprofessionals at the elementary schools.
Ray Labore, district business administrator, brought up the tuition calculation, which assumed that half of the Dunbarton enrollment would attend Goffstown High School.
The Budget Committee is scheduled to review the School Board’s proposed budget on Thursday, Nov. 14 and 21, at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
At the Nov. 4 meeting, the board also approved a memo of understanding with the Dunbarton School Board.
McCarthy said Dunbarton only wanted to include 10th-, 11th-, and 12th-graders and not their middle school siblings, and specifically asked that Dunbarton not be under obligation to provide transportation for its students. McKinnon suggested that Goffstown consider sharing the cost of transportation at future meetings.
