Posted by Ralph Ranalli February 22, 2007 06:42 AM


Next yearís Tahanto Regional Middle/High School budget would jump 5.88 percent to $6.7 million, an increase that includes the addition of a math teacher, a special education teacher, and department heads for both science and socials studies, according to Superintendent Marcia Lukonís proposed budget worksheet.

The suggested fiscal 2008 budget for the school that serves students from grades 7-12 in Berlin and Boylston is $371,000 more than the current budget of $6.3 million. The budget, which must be approved by the finance committees in both towns, also includes $38,335 to replace outdated textbooks.
