Nashua to debate school spending
The hearing, scheduled for Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the auditorium at Nashua High School North, follows more than a month of budget workshops on the $5 million, or 5.2 percent, increase over last year’s $97 million budget.
The 2015 budget also calls for $275,000 more for out-of-district placements for special education students and $125,750 more for natural gas, based on the current market prices.
School Superintendent Mark Conrad has stressed that less than 1 percent of the proposed budget is for new teachers, staff, text books and technology.
Some BOE members have already said they cannot support a school budget that limits this year’s increase to 2.1 percent.
