I can only
do my best to provide the best education that the Elementary students in
Moretown can afford. We cannot fret about $$ at the high school level that we do
not control. It's up to the taxpayers to vote on that
I want to know what effect special
education increases have on the MES budget, specifically the extraordinary
expenses. I also want to know what our increase might have been with 'normally'
expected or 'average' special ed expenses. I also want to know that our regular
ed students are not losing in this budget unless we are going to cut
services to all students equally.

Subject: FY 02 budget update
After comparing the FY 00 actuals with the FY 02 budget and
viewing budget development through a different lens, i.e. removing all
"just in case" and "what if " scenarios we have possible reductions totaling
$31,505 and additional revenues totaling $6,645.
However, most recent estimates from Harwood indicate a 4.83%
Therefore, the estimated actual education tax, using current
estimates is $2.12180, a 5.4% increase.
I don't know about you but I am completely discouraged.
