Allenstown parents mobilize to stave off $1 million school budget cut
Their goal: educate as many voters as possible to the potentially devastating effects of the modified school district budget, which is represented in Article 1 of this year's warrant. If approved, the budget, which was altered at the school district deliberative session on Feb. 1, will result in a roughly $1 million cut from the default budget.
A "no" vote to the $8,780,000 amended budget results in a default budget of $9,756,468, the same number originally proposed to voters when the article was modified by a 35-33 vote at deliberative session.
Organizers have scheduled an additional volunteer rally session for Tuesday at Allenstown Elementary School. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the school's library.
