FY25 BUDGET

The School Committee Budget Hearing was held on Feb 28.  A recording of the meeting is on the GCTV website.  Please be aware that there were some technical difficulties at the start of the meeting but the meeting minutes are also available for those interested.  My budget presentation is available on the school website under Administration – Budget.

The School Committee voted to adopt the Superintendent’s Budget as the School Committee Budget for FY25.  This reflects a 5.86% increase.  Please review the presentation on our website Please let me know if you have any specific questions about the budget.

Take care and I hope you can enjoy the sun today!
