Superintendent Susan Swartz stressed early on that this budget evenly distributes the wealth.
"From K-12, we have made improvements at every level," said Swartz.
Smith said the board is also feeling optimistic about the position of a part-time central registrar. This person will track student enrollment at all grade levels, conduct a census and coordinate state requirements for student data.
"The central registrar will be somewhat of a jack-of-all-trades. Our hope is that the position will help us in alleviating enrollment challenges for our elementary schools," said Smith.
Voting on both board members and the budget will be held from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, May 15, at the senior high school gymnasium at 1 Tartan Way in Scotia.""
