Letter from superintendent about 2017-18 NPS budget

Dear Newton Community,

Last week, the School Committee approved the budget for the 2017-18 school year. The final approved budget allows us to preserve so many of the programs and supports we have worked hard to implement over the past several years. With additional savings realized late in the process, we have been able to partially restore program areas we thought we would need to reduce more significantly.

Throughout the budget process, the district received many questions from the community. Attached you will find a document developed to answer the most common questions we received. Please select the following link: FAQ - 2017-18 Budget-FINAL.pdf. For more specific information on the budget, please visit the district website:https://tinyurl.com/lahbbx9

I hope you have an enjoyable April vacation.
