Modest increase, upgraded positions
characterize school budget
By Melanie Higgins
T
he School Department will
not be seeking any dras-
tic changes, according to Su-
perintendent Jane Tremblay
at last week’s Finance Com-
mittee meeting on March 6.
Tremblay outlined her plans
for the school district’s bud-
get before the 11-member
panel in a series of presenta-
tions, the last one going be-
fore the Board of Selectmen
on February 27. In her pre-
sentation Tremblay asked for
a modest 4% increase from
last year’s budget, which she
called “comparatively low.”
The appropriation request is
for $23,780,038.
The increases reflect a few
changes within the school
district: one being the need
for more teacher coverage,
the other being changes in
contracts. According to Trem-
blay, contracts for items such
as transportation and spe-
cial education costs have ris-
en 2.5 percent. On the other
front, the current part-time
school psychologist is being
overwhelmed by the increase
in volume of students seek-
ing attention. To remedy this
problem, Tremblay is seek-
ing to increase the psycholo-
gist’s hours from part-time to
full-time. She is also seeking
