It is amazing that another school year will soon come to a close. Our last day of school is scheduled for Monday, June 18th. This month's entry will highlight the FY19 Budget and the Dale St. Feasibility Study. As always, please search #Medfieldps to see the ongoing curation of the positive events in our district.
FY19 Budget- Question 2 on the June 11th Ballot
Thank you to the residents of Medfield for their overwhelming support of our budget at the Annual Town Meeting (ATM) on April 30, 2018. Please remember that this was only the first phase of approving our FY19 Budget. The next phase is approval at the June 11th ballot election. If ballot Question 2 passes, our budget will increase to the amount approved at the ATM. If Question 2 does not pass, the budget will be reduced by $1,043,521. This is more than an elementary class size issue; Blake Middle School and Medfield High School will also have significant impacts. To read about potential reductions needed to get to a 3% budget and to view all of the FY19 Budget documents please click here.
Dale St. Feasibility Study- Question 1 on the June 11th Ballot
Thank you to the residents of Medfield for their overwhelming support of the Dale St. Feasibility Study at the ATM on April 30, 2018. As you know, we were accepted in the Massachusetts School Building Authority program for new school construction. In order to move the Dale St. School Feasibility Study forward, Question 1 must pass at the ballot on June 11th. Please click here for all of the information related to the Dale St. Project.
