Any suggested changes please pass along to Kent. DRAFT for Kent 11 January 202 Legislative Representatives Dear State Representative (by name): The Moretown Board are concerned that there are uncertainties as to whether the Act 60 general state support grant will be fully funded for FY 2003. The idea that level funding is a reasonable response to the economic down turn we are currently experiencing, is alarming. Such a decision would simply shift additional burden onto the local property tax. We of the Moretown School Board are hopeful that when we propose our modest school budget increase of some 3.5% to our community we will do so in the expectation that the per pupil general state support grant will be fully funded at $5,566 rather than be level funded at $5,448. We are counting on you to support us in this matter. Regards for the Moretown School Board etc.
