RSU 14 begins budget deliberations

The Windham-Raymond School District Board of Directors opened budget deliberations Wednesday, when district Superintendent Sandy Prince presented a proposed fiscal year 2014 budget of $39.8 million, an increase of 2.26 percent over the fiscal year 2013 budget.

Prince said continued budget challenges facing schools across New England provide the district with opportunities to prioritize and become more efficient, while fostering a commitment to innovation in the classroom. “I think we are a highly efficient and highly performing school system. I think people get an incredibly high value for what they pay,” Prince said.

Salaries account for 74.51 percent of the proposed budget, while 17.51 percent will go to services, supplies and equipment and the remainder to debt service and other commitments.

The first of the district’s cost-center presentations will be at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 20 at the Windham Council chambers.
