percent increase – because of
the additional 10 students ex-
pected to be enrolled in class-
es next year.
Those are the bottom line fi-
nancial figures that irked sever-
almembersof theFinanceCom-
mittee Wednesday night dur-
ing a reviewof Northeast Metro
Tech’s Fiscal 2018 Budget.
“No Jaguars” lining
Saugus streets
For years, town officials have
complained that the formu-
la used to compute each com-
munity’s assessment is unfair to
Saugus, which pays more than
the other communities while
having the third highest en-
rollment. Even Northeast Met-
ro Tech Superintendent-Direc-
tor David DiBarri seemed to
sympathize with the town dur-
ing his presentation to the Fi-
nance Committee. “They [state
officials who compute the for-
mula] really feel Saugus is full
of very wealthy people,” DiBarri
said, addingthathedidn’tnotice
“Jaguars” parked on the streets
while driving through town.
“It’s been mentioned many,
many times – there should be
an update [of the formula],” said
Peter A. Rossetti, Jr. the Saugus
representative on the Northeast
MetroDistrictSchoolCommittee.
“It was a terrible thing to Sau-
gus, the way it was set up,” Fi-
nanceCommitteeMemberRon-
ald“Rocky”Jepson said.
“Theyfiguredwehadahigher
ability to pay,” Jepson said, not-
ing that the Route 1 business
corridor probably influenced
state officials in computing the
formula. “It’s totally wrong and
needs to be corrected,”he said.

a few surprises in the budget
package they received, partic-
ularly the 21 Special Education
students who were among the
191membersof lastyear’s (2016)
graduating class. “I didn’t know
we had Special Education stu-
dentsupthere,”FinanceCommit-
tee Chair KennethDePatto said.
The graduates included 71
low income students. There
were eight communities with
a higher graduation rate than
what Saugushad (86.4percent).
There was a 76.1 percent grad-
uation rate among low income
students from Saugus last year,
according to Northeast Metro’s
budget proposal.
Meanwhile, Saugus residents
should have a lot to feel posi-
tive about when they consid-
er the contributions that North-
eastMetroTechhasmade to the
town, accordingtoDiBarri.There
have been about 3,000 school
graduates from Saugus since
the1970’s,DiBarri said.“Wehave
about 25 employeeswho live in
the Town of Saugus – the high-
est of any town,”he said.
Renewed interest in new
school building
Finance Committee mem-
bers expressed considerable in-
terest in the school administra-
tion’s quest to be considered by
theMassachusettsSchool Build-
ing Authority (MSBA) for a new
school building.
DeBarri saidhe reintroduceda
statement of interest for a new
buildingabout aweekago. If ap-
provedby theMSBA, the school
district could receive up to 74
