Editorial: Voters' message on school budgets — Keep moving forward

Posted on March 4, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



School budgets around the state, for the most part, fared better this year than last when 34 budgets were defeated in town meeting balloting. Why the difference? Largely because the average school budget increase was held to just under 3 percent, compared to much higher increases in 2014.

But there is also the perception that the Legislature is responding to the changing landscape caused by the steep decline in the number of students in Vermont (it’s down 21,000 in the past two decades), the low teacher-pupil ratios and the consequent high per-pupil cost.

ID-4 board right in wanting to keep annual meeting

Posted on February 19, 2015 |
By Susan Shashok



I saw the editorial about potentially changing the ID-4 budget process. I am glad that petitioners are looking to raise awareness of our local school budget, such a great topic.! I wish to share other thoughts that come to mind since they were not covered by the paper.

I attended the last ID-4 meeting and witnessed a very thoughtful board wrestling with a complicated question. They have done their homework on their current charter and certainly welcome more participation in their budget voting and process.
