2016-2017 Proposed Budget - A Letter From Superintendent Hopkins

May 2, 2016

Dear Colleagues:

Re: 2016-2017 School Year Budget

The MSAD 11 School Board recently approved the 2016-2017 school year budget. In the preceding months, School Board members and administrators engaged in candid, direct discussions regarding the increasing and changing needs of our students, Pre-K – Grade 12. School Board members expressed great concern by many of the descriptive recounts of situations and behaviors requiring staff and administrator attention.

Those first hand accounts were critical factors during the development of the 2016-2017 budget. Deemed essential to the continued operations of our schools, the School Board included the following items:

· Pre-K – Grade 2 Regular Education Behavioral Program

· Grade 1 Teacher, Laura E. Richards School

· Elementary Nurse

· STEM Teacher, Gardiner Regional Middle School

· 2 Educational Technicians, Gardiner Regional Middle School

· Social Worker, Gardiner Area High School

· .5 Math Teacher, Gardiner Area High School

It is understood by the School Board that while additional needs remain, these additions are significant. The additions are expected to provide considerable support to those students and families who are in need and to assist in the day to day responsibility of successfully educating students.

To provide this additional level of support, the proposed budget of $23,904,000 represents a 4.98% or 1,133,000 increase over the current budget. The local share of the proposed budget will increase by $365,789.88. The Board understands that while any increase to taxpayers may be difficult, maintaining a solid educational system is essential to the immediate needs of our students and to the long-term success of our communities.
