I believe our budget supports small class sizes, arts, music, athletics, extracurriculars, the expansion of pre-k, additional electives at the high school, and mental health supports. It was developed with input from stakeholders and in collaboration with our Board of Education. Let me know if you have any questions.
There are lots of cool stories, it is definitely worth checking out!
