BOE Will Detail Further Cuts Tonight


Share post:

At tonight’s Board of Education meeting,  Superintendent Charles Sampson and the rest of the Verona school board will outline the deep cuts that need to be made to the 2010-2011 Verona school budget in the wake of state aid cutbacks announced by Governor Chris Christie last Wednesday. As we reported then, Verona must now cut $1.4 million from next year’s budget, almost $600,000 more  than anticipated.  The night before the announcement, the board  had detailed over $800,000 in  cuts that they’d hoped would be sufficient. The need for additional reductions threatens Sampson’s stated goal of preserving academic offerings.

The meeting begins at 8:00 p.m. in the VHS Media Center. To get to the Media Center, make a right after entering the high school’s main front doors, then make a left at the end of the hall. The Media Center is on the left. There will be opportunity for public comment.
