Proposed $13.5m budget for New Boston headed to voters
NEW BOSTON — About 25 people attended the school district’s deliberative session on Tuesday, with little comment on the $13,584,226 operating budget. The 2014-15 budget will go before voters on the March 11 ballot.
This year, for example, the district has incurred $42,000 in unanticipated therapy costs associated with special education. In Article 4, the board’s request to add $30,000 to the special education reserve fund will be funded from unencumbered reserves and will not increase the tax rate.
In March, voters will be asked to approve Article 3 — a new 10-year AREA agreement with Goffstown, which was recommended by the Goffstown and New Boston school boards and was approved by the state Department of Education. In the agreement, New Boston will receive a reduction in rental space fee from 2.5 percent to 2 percent of the appraised value of Mountain View Middle School and Goffstown High School. The reduction has been factored into the tuition costs in the agreement.
New Boston’s cost for 2014-15 to send students to MVMS is $12,323 per student, and $12,904 per high school student. In 2013-14, 144 students attended the middle school, and projected enrollments for 2014-15 are 161 students. In 2013-14, 279 New Boston students attended the high school, and projected enrollments for 2014-15 are 303 students.
Voting for all warrant articles and elected positions takes place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 11, at New Boston Central School.
