Litchfield.bz (05-09-18)


The Region 6 Board of Education has a budget for 2018-19.
 
A spending plan of $19,439,252 was approved at a district meeting Monday at Wamogo Regional High School. The vote in favor of the proposal was 85-6.
 
The new budget carries no increase over the current education budget.
 
Superintendent of Schools Christopher Leone in a statement Tuesday praised town and school officials, school staff and district residents for their support during the budget process.
 
“It was all of your time, late nights, emails, conversations and vision which helped create a budget and make the process a success,” Leone wrote. “I truly believe you have established a process for the rest of the state to emulate.”
 
Leone’s next task is to hold meeting in Warren, Morris and Goshen to discuss how declining enrollment will be addressed at the elementary school level beginning in 2019-20. Specifically, Leone will talk about grade configurations.
 
The meeting schedule is:
 
May 15 at Warren School: 10 a.m. for parents, 3:30 p.m. for staff and 6 p.m. for parents and students.
 
May 17 at James Morris School: 10 a.m. for parents, 3:30 p.m. for staff and 6 p.m. for parents and students.
 
May 17 at Goshen Center School: 10 a.m. for parents and 3:30 p.m. for staff.
 
May 18 at Goshen Center School: 6 p.m. for parents and students.
