At Tuesday's School Committee meeting, Tom Miller and I made a presentation on our FY 18 "Needs Based Budget". In it, we outlined the rationale behind the creation of our operating budget and we took time to outline the wonderful things we've been able to do in the district, thanks to the support of the Marshfield taxpayers over the years.
We then looked at items within our financial plan and how they impact our proposed budget. Tuesday was a first read for the budget, and the School Committee will review it once more at our next meeting, prior to voting the preliminary number to send to Town Hall.
Here's a link to the PowerPoint presentation. Please feel free to review and we hope you find it helpful and informational.
