Archived Superintendent Reports

Budget Workshop – Thanks to everyone who attended the budget workshop on Saturday morning.  Each school and district unit presented their budget and asks for the new school year to the NRSD School Committee.  This resulted in rich dialogue and excellent clarifying questions.  We began at 8:00 am and finished at exactly 12:00 noon.  Thanks to everyone who prepared presentations for their attention to detail.  A special note of thanks to Pat Marone and Michelle Cote who continue to work at the budget process.

 

(Standard 1, 2,3)

 

Budget Process – We continue to put forward efforts to bring the overarching budget number in line with what we feel is palatable to our communities.  This evening we will present a number that is different from the total number presented on Saturday.  The principals and district administration continue to meet regularly in search of reductions and efficiencies with what has already been proposed and will do so throughout the month of February.  We continue to look at student population in general, and specific to each school and each grade level.  We continue to look for potential re-deployment of staff to support student population shifts and needs.  We continue to discuss equity and consistency across the district, however, are also cognizant to different student population shifts in different ways between buildings.  We anticipate being closer to a final number within the next two school committee meetings.
