MONROE SCHOOL DISTRICT PROPOSED BUDGET 2016-2017
The Monroe School Board has approved a proposed budget for the 2016-2017 school year. This budget is up 2.35%. The Food Service Fund budget is down -1.92%.
The Board also approved trust fund contributions totaling $75,000. No new trust funds are being requested. Funds between $5,000 and $20,000 are being requested depending upon the fund, amount needed, and the timing of need:
· Playground $20,000.
· Building Maintenance $15,000.
· Parking Lot $ 5,000.
· Special Education $15,000.
· Heating System $15,000.
· High School Tuition $ 5,000.
The total proposed budget including trust funds is up 2.5%.
A public hearing will be held on February 10 at 6 p.m., with a snow date of February 11.
The Board has completed the generator project this year for emergency shelter. Next year they will be asking to fund keyless lock entry security system for both interior and exterior school doors. This project will be funded 50% by FEMA and will cost $41,114 for the Town of Monroe. This is a -6% decrease from the generator project costs.
The Board is still in negotiations with the teachers union and will not have any new cost items to share on this topic until February 8th.
Use of recordings in classrooms.
The School Board has approved that recordings in school classrooms are allowed. A new New Hampshire law requires each school board to make this decision for their own schools.
This law only requires this permission for recording “inside classroom settings.” The law does not affect any recordings outside of the classrooms. These will continue as always at Monroe School
The next step for recordings inside classroom settings is to have both teachers and parents give their approval. Parents will soon be receiving an approval form from the school to sign for their written consent.
