On Saturday morning at 9 a.m., the Springs School Board will hold a community conversation, offering parents, students, staff, and district residents an opportunity to participate in small-group brainstorming sessions. The topic? Identification of programs and services that may need to be sacrificed in order for the district to work within the constraints of the tax-levy cap imposed by Albany.
As of now, the 2012-13 school budget has a shortfall of over $1 million.
The forum will focus on instructional programs, special education, sports, field trips, and extra-curricular activities.
Feedback from the forum will guide the school board as the budget discussions proceed.
Those who are interested in attending have been encouraged to respond as soon as possible to firstname.lastname@example.org.
