On Tuesday May 13th, 2014, voters in Scarborough will be given the opportunity to weigh-in on the School component of the FY15 Municipal Budget in a special, budget validation referendum.
Extraordinary and thoughtful work has been put into this final proposal by Scarborough's Educational Leaders, the School Board, and the Town Council. It is a credible, well-developed, and reasonable proposal.
This budget, while substantially lower than what the School Community would like, does allow us to make some very critical investments and to continue essential school improvement efforts.
I urge all voters to approve the FY15 Scarborough School Budget. It is the right thing to do for the Scarborough Schools and for the Scarborough Community.
Dr. George Entwistle, Superintendent
