The district at a glance:
The 2010-11 district budget was passed 7-1 April 5 during a special meeting. Board member Michael Murphy was the sole opposition. The board approved a 2.18 percent increase and a total budget of $131,277,809.
A total of 44.4 regular teaching positions were eliminated, including 6.6 special education positions, 1 school nurse, 44.37 teaching assistants, 5.29 clerical, 4 director/supervisor positions, 8.5 operation and maintenance positions, 5.33 teaching aides, 3 transportation positions and 6.62 job coaching positions.
The district's technology plan was also revised during the long budget process. About $700,000 was reduced from the technology plan with the board's intention to purchase in the first year rather than lease at a total of $1.24 million over four years.
The district will host a public hearing on the budget at 6:30 p.m. Thursday May 6 at the District Office. The public will vote on the budget and candidates on Election Day set for May 18. There are five seats open and five eligible candidates who are running.
